Vadodara girl Deval Shah of Jeevan Sadhna school topped the state scoring 95.2 per cent marks. Milap Parmar of PV Modi High School, Rajkot, stood second with 95 per cent marks.

Among the 32 in the top-ten merit list, Ayushi Sutaria from Ahmedabad's St Xavier's Loyola School, Ruchi Shah of Vidyani Vidyalaya, Vadodara and Pratiksha Kapadia of Jetpur come from English medium schools and all rank eighth scoring 93.8 per cent marks.

/photo.cms?msid=5906349Just when it seemed like the end of the road for Shiney Ahuja, he’s been signed for a film. This is the first project the actor has landed after being arrested for allegedly raping his maid. 
The film, titled Shunya , is a horror flick being directed by Puja Bedi, the niece of Bobby Bedi, who producedBandit Queen . Sayali Bhagat plays the female lead. 
A source informs, “Shooting for the film begins on May 12 in Lavasa, a small town near Pune. The court has barred Shiney only from entering Mumbai.”

THE katrina kafe

Katrina Kaif, who usually remains tight-lipped about her relationship with actor Salman Khan, says the star always guided her and genuinely believed she would join the big league in Bollywood one day.

"Salman had been always there, more than anything to guide because I didn't know anything about the industry. What would remain special in my mind is that from the very beginning Salman told me that I will achieve this success in the industry. And at that point it was too far off," said Katrina.

"That time I couldn't see myself one 
movie ahead, forget 15 movies ahead. I think that he believed it genuinely," the 25-year-old actor said.

She entered Bollywood in 2003 with the dud 
Boom. Her first big hit was 2005 romantic comedy Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya in which she teamed up with Salman. After that she gave a string of hits, including Namastey London, Partner, Welcome, Singh Is Kinng and critically acclaimed New York.

But Katrina feels nobody can plan success.

"It's (success) destiny, no one can plan it. There are many people who are connected with the industry because of their father, mother or other family members; still they are not able to achieve what is termed as success in the industry.

"You can come here, make two or three films, your co-stars could be your friends - all this you can plan but you can't plan which film would be successful. The miracle that happened with my life has been the success of my films. Because, had those films not been successful, no one would have done anything for me," said Katrina.

She is now eager to take more responsibilities and do more diverse roles like the one she is doing in Prakash Jha's 
Raajneeti, where she plays a politician.

"Till now I have done a genre of films. People have accepted me, loved me and have given me so much support. I never imagined getting so much. But I feel that there are other types of films to do. See other contemporary actors, they have done much more diverse roles.

"People can say that the success ratio of my films has been very, very good, but I still feel people should see me on other kinds of films too...

"May be something like a remake of 
Sita Aur Gita...In Raajneeti, I have more responsibility. But you will have to remember that there I am with six very important guys, all have very important roles," said Katrina.

The actress maintains she always wanted to do something unusual in life.

"I always used to make a world in my head and live in that. I always wanted to be something unusual. Some of the dreams I remember, they may sound stupid - I wanted to be a firefighter, I wanted to be a stunt woman, I wanted to go to NASA. 
Acting was something to fancy," said K

IELTS Reading Tips

Below are IELTS Reading tips that could help you ace the reading section of the IELTS:
  • Read and follow the instructions. Although some might think this is a waste of time, it'sactually a time saver and it increases your chances of writing accurate answers. For instance, not all multiple choice questions only ask for one answer. Sometimes you are instructed to choose 2 or even 3 answers. If you can't give the right number of answers, you'll get it wrong.
  • Examine and learn from the examples for they give you a clue on what kind and form of answers you are supposed to give.
  • Use your time wisely. There are 3 passages and you have only 1 hour to answer all 40questions. Hence, you have approximately 20 minutes to spend per passage. However, if you can spend more time on passages 2 and 3, that would be better since they are more difficult than the 1st passage and thus need more attention.
  • Unlike the Listening subtest in which you will be given time to transfer your answers on the answer sheet, in the Reading subtest you have to write your answers on the answer sheet right there and then.
  • If you are not a fast reader, it is not advisable to read the passages right away. It would be better to read with a reason first in mind in order to predict what information you need or might need. So what are the important things to read in this part of the test? Read the title, the headings or subtitles if there are any, the bold and italized words, the instructions and examples, the questions and look at pictures, graphs or diagrams included in the passage. All of these will give you clues on the important information you will need for your answers. Sometimes, even without reading the whole passage, you'd be able to answer the questions correctly just by looking at the things I mentioned above.
  • Use your scanning skills to find specific information and use your skimming skills to get main ideas.
  • Read the topic sentence of each paragraph. The topic sentence is the sentence that summarizes the meaning of the whole paragraph. It is usually found at the first sentence. However, it can also be found at times in the last sentence of the paragraph or in the middle of the paragraph. Sometimes, however, it can't be found in just one sentence because it is only implied. If this is the case, you'll need to use your skimming skills.
  • If the passage is a little technical and there are words used there you can't understand, try to find the glossary of the passage where you can find the difficult words' meanings.
  • Read around the keywords to find the answers. The keywords can be taken from the questions. Find words similar in meaning in the paragraphs and read around them to find the information you need.
  • If there's any question regarding a number or date, find the answer for that question first, since numbers are easier to locate in paragraphs than words.
  • Usually, the answers come in the same order as the questions. Hence, the answer to question number one will most likely be found in the first paragraphs and the last question's answer can be found in the last paragraph.

What is English?

History of the English Language

A short history of the origins and development of English

The history of the English language really started with the arrival of three Germanic tribes who invaded Britain during the 5th century AD. These tribes, the Angles, the Saxons and the Jutes, crossed the North Sea from what today is Denmark and northern Germany. At that time the inhabitants of Britain spoke a Celtic language. But most of the Celtic speakers were pushed west and north by the invaders - mainly into what is now Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The Angles came from Englaland and their language was called Englisc - from which the words England and English are derived.
Map of Germanic invasions
Germanic invaders entered Britain on the east and south coasts in the 5th century.

Old English (450-1100 AD)

Example of Old English
Part of Beowulf, a poem written in Old English.
The invading Germanic tribes spoke similar languages, which in Britain developed into what we now call Old English. Old English did not sound or look like English today. Native English speakers now would have great difficulty understanding Old English. Nevertheless, about half of the most commonly used words in Modern English have Old English roots. The words be,strong and water, for example, derive from Old English. Old English was spoken until around 1100.

Middle English (1100-1500)

Example of Middle English
An example of Middle English by Chaucer.
In 1066 William the Conqueror, the Duke of Normandy (part of modern France), invaded and conquered England. The new conquerors (called the Normans) brought with them a kind of French, which became the language of the Royal Court, and the ruling and business classes. For a period there was a kind of linguistic class division, where the lower classes spoke English and the upper classes spoke French. In the 14th century English became dominant in Britain again, but with many French words added. This language is called Middle English. It was the language of the great poet Chaucer (c1340-1400), but it would still be difficult for native English speakers to understand today.

Modern English

Early Modern English (1500-1800)

Example of Early Modern English
Hamlet's famous "To be, or not to be" lines, written in Early Modern English by Shakespeare.
Towards the end of Middle English, a sudden and distinct change in pronunciation (the Great Vowel Shift) started, with vowels being pronounced shorter and shorter. From the 16th century the British had contact with many peoples from around the world. This, and the Renaissance of Classical learning, meant that many new words and phrases entered the language. The invention of printing also meant that there was now a common language in print. Books became cheaper and more people learned to read. Printing also brought standardization to English. Spelling and grammar became fixed, and the dialect of London, where most publishing houses were, became the standard. In 1604 the first English dictionary was published.

Late Modern English (1800-Present)

The main difference between Early Modern English and Late Modern English is vocabulary. Late Modern English has many more words, arising from two principal factors: firstly, the Industrial Revolution and technology created a need for new words; secondly, the British Empire at its height covered one quarter of the earth's surface, and the English language adopted foreign words from many countries.

Varieties of English

From around 1600, the English colonization of North America resulted in the creation of a distinct American variety of English. Some English pronunciations and words "froze" when they reached America. In some ways, American English is more like the English of Shakespeare than modern British English is. Some expressions that the British call "Americanisms" are in fact original British expressions that were preserved in the colonies while lost for a time in Britain (for example trash for rubbish, loan as a verb instead of lend, and fall for autumn; another example, frame-up, was re-imported into Britain through Hollywood gangster movies). Spanish also had an influence on American English (and subsequently British English), with words like canyonranchstampede and vigilante being examples of Spanish words that entered English through the settlement of the American West. French words (through Louisiana) and West African words (through the slave trade) also influenced American English (and so, to an extent, British English).
Today, American English is particularly influential, due to the USA's dominance of cinema, television, popular music, trade and technology (including the Internet). But there are many other varieties of English around the world, including for example Australian English, New Zealand English, Canadian English, South African English, Indian English and Caribbean English.
