Local artistes put on show for Susheela

TWENTY Malaysian artistes recently had the opportunity to perform before legendary Tamil Nadu singer P. Susheela, Makkal Osai reported.

They were participants of the Vocal Training and Musical India Trip programme organised by ADR Music Training Centre.

The group presented popular cinema songs as well as works by local songwriters.

Susheela, a winner of the Padma Bhushan – the third-highest civilian award in India – also presented certificates to the artistes after the concert.

> The daily also reported that a man in Uttar Pradesh, India, nearly bit off the fingers of a shopkeeper and his son after a dispute over 50 rupees (RM3).

The man is said to have bought clothes at a shop in Banda city here and returned the next day to exchange for a larger size.

The shop owner reportedly asked for 50 rupees more for a bigger-sized garment, which led to an argument between the two.

It soon descended into a scuffle, with the customer biting their fingers. The man fled after the attack, leaving his clothes outside the shop on the road.
