A footballer has died after a celebration went tragically wrong in India’s Mizoram Premier League.

The 23-year-old midfielder scored a 62nd-minute equaliser against Chanmari West FC in Tuesday’s league encounter and celebrated acrobatically – in a manner similar to record World Cup goalscorer Miroslav Klose.

He spent five days in hospital, as doctors unsuccessfully attempted to heal his injuries, and was pronounced dead in the early hours of Sunday after being put on a ventilator.

A source said: ‘He was trying to do Germany’s Klose signature flip stunt, but it misfired unfortunately.’ 

 

Reports in India suggest that Biaksangzuala had donated his eyes during the time he spent in the hospital.

In memory of the midfielder, Bethlehem Vengthlang FC have retired his shirt No 21 with the Mizoram Football Association releasing a statement via their official Facebook page.

The statement read: ‘Bethlehem Vengthlang FC midfielder Peter Biaksangzuala lost his fight for survival after he suffered a fatal injury while celebrating his goal.

‘It has been a sad day for Mizoram football and the demise of the footballer shook his team-mates, footballers and fans alike all over Mizoram.

‘Peter was a defensive midfielder who had always been aggressive and hard working, a true team player. Like most defensive midfielders, he was excellent at reading the game, breaking up attacks and protecting his defenders.

‘Peter’s club Bethlehem Vengthlang FC will retire his jersey no. 21.’

Bethlehem Vengthlang coach Danny Lalduhawma added: ‘Peter was a lad with good manner who always maintained his discipline on and off the pitch. I don’t think there are many like him.’

Jada Pinkett Smith Pens An Open Letter On Facebook About Losing Tupac & More To Violence

jada-pac

Jada Pinkett-Smith was very close with Tupac while he was alive, so much so their relationship has been the talk of many different culture commentators and film/documentary directors for years. To accentuate what was a “reflective Saturday” for the Hollywood star, Pinkett-Smith penned a very heartfelt open letter not just about Tupac and her close friend Maxine, but what their deaths, and the circumstances that brought about their deaths, say about the society we live in, and who we are as a culture.

I’m having a deeply reflective Saturday.

In this picture I’m flanked by two extremely close friends of mine…Tupac and Maxine. They both died tragically not too far apart from one another. I flipped through more pictures of my youth only to come across at least 6 other friends who had been taken from this world…violently. I can’t even count acquaintances. There was a time all that loss felt like the norm; today it felt unnatural, strange, downright wrong. Half of my life was surviving a war zone…genocide. I’m grateful for what I have survived. GratefuI that I can spend an evening with Fallon playing a pie in the face game. Grateful I didn’t become a statistic like I often thought I would. Grateful that my own children don’t have to confront the loss and violence in their neighborhood in the way their parents had to. But, I also feel helpless, a bit depressed that there are so many of us who still do. And it feels like it’s only gotten and getting worse.

I’m hurting today.

Love you guys.

New York artist creates ‘art’ that is invisible and collectors are paying millions

27-year-old artist Lana Newstrom says she is the first artist in the world to create invisible “art.”  In a documentary, “This is That,” traveled to her empty studio to learn more about Lana and her unusual  artistic process.

“Just because you can’t see anything, doesn’t mean I didn’t put hours of work into creating a particular piece”

Lana Newstrom, Artist

“Art is about imagination and that is what my work demands of the people interacting with it. You have to imagine a painting or sculpture is in front of you,” says Newstrom.

Paul Rooney, Lana’s agent, believes she might be the greatest artist alive working today: “When she describes what you can’t see, you begin to realize why one of her invisible works can fetch upwards of a million dollars.” said Rooney.

Do you think Fashion is about what you wear?

logos223694_503678709651463_1918496667_nby Erika Miranda (Bombay Hott Radio)

Every woman asks herself a question every morning, whether to go to work or just hang with the girls? The answer is no, alot of women ask themselves what they should wear. It’s not about what you wear, it’s all about who you wear. Every girl can afford to buy a top but everyone can’t afford a top with a name.

Before the 21st century people called it clothes,  a shirt, a skirt or a dress. But today we have names like Zara, DKNY, Prada, Gucci, Dolce & so many more. It’s really funny because people stopped saying “Nice outfit” and now-a-days all they say “damn Prada huh…!?!?!”

Has the fashion industry changed the way people think about style? It’s disappointing to see people going to the gym only to wear the perfect dress. In the movie Bride Wars, Kate Hudson said “You don’t alter Vera Wang for your body; you alter your body for Vera Wang”. There are movies out there that have given women another reason to be judged. Gone are the days, when women look at themselves & try to tailor an outfit for the perfect evening. Today it’s all about tailoring your body for a dress. Women always have been put through the pressures of looking good to impress a man but today it’s all seems to be about making another woman jealous. The bigger the brand, the more the jealousy. I used to remember looking at catalogs to either pick a dress or the material, but now it’s all about which diet plan does one need to get into the outfit.

The biggest crime this industry has done is show size 0 runway models. First of all, women don’t like numbers, hence, you never ask a woman her age or how much she weighs because woman like to judge themselves but not be judged. Sometimes when one calls another fat, she doesn’t look in the mirror to see if she is fat but looks in the mirror to understand if that’s what her husband or boyfriend feels. Women make fashion a part of every aspect in life. I have seen young girls still in school wearing clothes I still can’t afford but want to buy just to fit in. Before peer pressure was all about sex & drugs but today it’s played its way into fashion as well. If you don’t wear the latest brands you will never fit in. This is the message the fashion industry has given young children. School children today know who D&G, Prada, Mango and Zara are.

Today it’s not just about clothing, it’s also about who you are, as people are judged or accepted based on what they are rather than who they are. You maybe the dumbest girl in the world but you will be my best friend if you are spending all daddies’ hard earned money on designer labelled cloths than a proper education. If you are not educated with 16 years of academics, you can always work in the fashion industry as a model, beautician or a stylist but not as lawyers, doctors or CEOs.
