'Star Trek' actor Leonard Nimoy passes away at 83 after suffering lung disease

Los Angeles, Feb 28 (ANI): Leonard Nimoy, best known for his portrayal of logic-bound Mr. Spock in the "Star Trek" science fiction television series and movies, died at age 83 after a battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. At the star he received on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his contribution to television and film, flowers were placed and passersby reacted to his death. With the death of Nimoy, some were mourning as much the loss of the character he was so identified with, perhaps attributing the characteristics of Spock to his mortal portrayer. Meanwhile, Nimoy's granddaughter used the same Twitter account to confirm the death of the American actor saying that Nimoy was an extraordinarily talented man but he was also a very decent human being. George Takei, who played Hikaru Sulu in 'Star Trek' and was a friend of Nimoy's, paid tribute to the actor saying that the word extraordinary was often overused but it was really appropriate for Nimoy.

Maharashtra/ Madhya Pradesh/ Kerala, Feb 28 (ANI): Citizens across India hope that Narendra Modi government comes up with a pro-people budget as it prepares to present its first full-fledged annual budget in Parliament for the fiscal year 2015-16. Prime Minister Narendra Modi's target for free-market economics faces a major test on Saturday (February 28), in a budget India's top economic advisor has warned could wreck the leader's promises of "good days"if there's no roadmap to reform. Reaping the benefits of low global prices for oil, India's main import, Modi's government sees itself in a sweet spot with spare cash to modernize ageing roads and railways without busting fiscal deficit and inflation targets. However, analysts warn that Indian stocks are overvalued and that equity markets could see a sell off of 6-8 percent if the pro-growth measures in the budget, to be unveiled by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley at 11.00 a.m. (0530 GMT), fall short of expectations Feb 28, 2015
