Rupee Hits Fresh Twoyear Lows RBI Governor Rajan Says Ready to Arrest

first_imgThe rupee depreciated to fresh two-year lows on Monday, as intensifying worries over China’s economic growth triggered heavy currency sell-off in global markets, including India.The rupee fell sharply to close at 66.72 against the dollar on Monday after the benchmark stock index, the S&P BSE Sensex, fell over 1,100 points in early morning trade. Overall, the rupee has fallen by 4% in the past two weeks.However, the rupee pared some of the losses later on, but still remained at its lowest level since September 2013. The domestic currency had hit its lowest at 68.80 against the US dollar on 28 August, 2013.The rupee has been under pressure ever since the Chinese authorities opted for yuan devaluation two weeks ago. The devaluation triggered a global sell-off in currencies, including the Indian rupee.Investors are also worried that China may be compelled to devalue its currency further if its economy faces further slowdown.Another round of devaluation could fuel concerns of a global currency war, which will be detrimental to global economy.”I am afraid there is going to be further pressure on emerging market currencies. I do not think this is necessarily the end of it,” Khoon Goh of ANZ Research told CNBC-TV18.To ease concerns over the continuing depreciation of the rupee, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor Raghuram Rajan said that “the Reserve Bank will not hesitate to use its USD 380-billion foreign-exchange reserves to jag out volatility”.”India is in a better position compared to other markets,” Rajan said.Many analysts expect the rupee to remain slightly resilient to China’s yuan devaluation compared to other Asian currencies.”The impact of yuan devaluation on the rupee will be less compared to other Asian currencies such as the South Korean won, Taiwan dollar and the Singapore dollar,” Roy Teo, a Singapore-based currency strategist at ABN Amro Bank NV, told Livemint.last_img read more

EA Access coming to PlayStation after Sony reconsiders its value

first_imgMajor videogame developer, Electronic Arts is finally bringing their premium video gaming service, EA Access, to Sony’s PlayStation 4. The subscription will be available at $4.99 (approx. Rs. 350) billed monthly, or at $29.99 (approx. Rs. 2,100) billed annually, the same prices as on the Xbox One.The service enables users to download and play full games on the console for as long as they are active subscribers. It offers over 50 games from the publishing house, with additional benefits, including exclusive access to early releases of major titles and a 10 percent discount on digital videogame purchases, expansions and in-game items.This decision has come as a change for Sony. A representative from the company had said back in 2014 that the service did not “bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect.” PlayStation Plus is Sony’s own service, which gives access to full games and special offers on popular titles at Rs. 600 per month. Sony PS4 consoleAmazon IndiaThe ‘Vault’ of EA Access includes popular titles, ranging in genre from sports to simulation to action and adventure. Among the growing library of games are the latest titles as well as older ones. Some of the popular names are FIFA 19, Anthem, The Sims 4, Need For Speed: Payback, Burnout Paradise: Remastered, Unravel 2, Mass Effect: Andromeda, A Way Out, Mirror’s Edge, Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1, Star Wars: Battlefront 2, NHL 19, Madden 19 and UFC 3.EA Access brings Xbox 360 games to the Xbox One, but we might not see this feature on the PlayStation since the console does not yet support backward compatibility. Need for Speed PaybackNFSXbox users can rejoice. The two subscription-based services – Xbox Gold and Xbox Game Pass – are getting an upgrade. The former enables an online gaming experience, while the latter grants full access to a huge library of games. Both services will be merged into one wholesome package, which will be called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate available for $14.99 (approx. Rs. 1,050) billed monthly.Slow internet has held back Indian gamers from using digital stores everywhere, but with the onset of 5G technology in India, it seems like the perfect time for companies to adapt. This move to bring major games at steep discounts to players is apparent as the gaming industry is going through a digitisation phase (see Stadia). Several publishers have begun offering games through digital means only. Notably, Steam had been a major perpetrator of this shift, garnering infamy for the enticing discounts.

Did Malaika Arora indirectly hint at Arbaaz Khan with her anxiety and

first_imgMalaika Arora, who is currently holidaying with beau Arjun Kapoor in New York, doesn’t let go of a single opportunity to let the world know how madly they both are in love. Ever since the duo admitted their relationship publically, they have been showering each-other with love and admiration on social media.And now, in a recent post, Malaika Arora seems to be indirectly hinting at her troubled marriage with Arbaaz Khan. Taking to Instagram, Malaika shared a quote which read, “The right lover will never cause anxiety. you will feel at peace. they will cease the war in your chest and fill the bones with nectar.”Well, the quote that she has shared certainly makes us feel that she is trying to indirectly convey that she had anxiety issues in her marriage and is now at peace. Wishing Arjun Kapoor on his 34th birthday, and making her relationship official, Malaika had written, “Happy bday my crazy, insanely funny n amazing @arjunkapoor … love n happiness always.”While one section of Twitterati celebrated their love, the other ridiculed them for breaking up a home and trying to set-up another one.Talking about how her 16-year-old son, Arhaan, reacted to the news of Arbaaz and her separating, Malaika told HT Brunch, “I believe the best way to approach any situation is with honesty.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sneak in a shocking visitor for baby

first_imgMeghan MarkleThe Duke and Duchess of Sussex Official Instagram (sussexroyal)Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had a surprise visitor. Reportedly, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex secretly held a meeting so their “idol”, Dr. Jane Goodall could say hello to their son Archie.According to the Mirror, the Duke and Duchess invited the chimpanzee specialist to their Frogmore Cottage property last month. Reports suggest she had the chance to give the then-five-week-old a cuddle. That is quite an impressive guest for sure.Reportedly, the visit comes after Dr. Goodall saw Harry stopover at one of her ‘Roots and Shoots’ youth programmes. Apparently, there, the 34-year-old began to gain a better understanding of what the initiative involves. Dr. is of the opinion that fatherhood is the reason Prince Harry is interested in the project. She reportedly told him that of course he was interested in Roots and Shoots, especially now that he has a baby and he seems to have agreed.  New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (L), French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius (3rd L), animal activist Jane Goodall (C), former United States Vice President Al Gore (3rd R), United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon (2nd R) and French Environment Minister Segolene Royal take part in the “People’s Climate March” in Manhattan, New York on 21 September 2014.ReutersDr. Goodall also seems to have revealed that Meghan admitted to being an admirer of her work for many years. She described Meghan as saying she “hero-worshipped” the 85-year-old, who had been her “idol” for many years.It is known that Dr. Jane Goodall is a prominent primatologist and anthropologist. Considered to be the world’s foremost expert on Chimpanzees. It looks like Meghan and Harry have the right idea when it comes to shaping baby Archie’s mind. We have to say that the couple Sussex may be the type of parents that prioritise education and an informed mind. Despite all the criticism Meghan has been facing recently, the Duchess needs to be given props for exposing baby Archie to Dr. Jane Goodall, even if baby Archie might have no memory of the event. As a parent, we have to say that it is a good start.last_img read more
