NEW DELHI — Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s lobbying spending in the U.S. has stirred controversy in the Indian Parliament.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
