Vijayawada, July 23 (Hydnow): Biswabhusan Harichandan, who assumed office as Governor of Andhra Pradesh on July 24, 2019, has completed three years in office by July 23 this year. In a television address to the people of the State to be telecast over the Doordarshan Saptagiri channel on Sunday, Harichandan said it was an honor to serve as Governor of Andhra Pradesh and he had three fruitful and fulfilling years of his tenure as Governor of the State.

The Governor thanked the people of the State, public representatives, and members of civil society, for the whole-hearted support extended to him during the past three years and expressed hope that he would continue to receive the same affection from all in the future. (Hydnow)
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush.

There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
