On Monday, the 36-year-old dancer posted a killer butt selfie of her overlooking a balcony while dressed in a sheer black bodysuit.

Once we start demanding good books and stories, publishers may find it easier to invest in quality books, says Sahoo.

Navratri literally means 'nine nights' in Sanskrit - 'nava' meaning nine and 'ratri' meaning nights. Every year, it is celebrated in honour of Goddess Durga, to pay respect to her nine avatars.
