Jagga Jasoos which was produced by Ranbir Kapoor opened after several delays to a lukewarm response at the box office Related News Rishi Kapoor on Monday criticised Jagga Jasoos director Anurag Basu calling him ‘irresponsible’ Rishi also revealed that Anurag hadn’t shown the film to Ranbir even a day before the release In an interview with Mid-Day Rishi said that Anurag doesn’t complete his films on time While Rishi clarified that he is not upset with Ranbir’s decision to do Jagga Jasoos the actor raised questions on how the film was handled “Till Wednesday Anurag Basu was still mixing the film Can you imagine that Pritam (composer) probably delivered the music only a week before What can you say You (here Basu) don’t take an opinion from anybody Today’s filmmakers are doing this with everybody They don’t show their films before release to take opinions and treat it as though they’re making a nuclear bomb I didn’t hate or love the film I only felt it needed to be abridged by 20 minutes But who is going to give that opinion to them I totally agree with Ekta [Kapoor] when she threw him out from her film He had problems with Rakesh Roshan while working on ‘Kites’ (2010) He’s such an irresponsible director that he doesn’t complete the film It was supposed to release three times in the past two years but it kept getting delayed” Rishi was quoted saying in the report Jagga Jasoos which was produced by Ranbir Kapoor opened after several delays to a lukewarm response at the box office Rishi Kapoor also said that the delay affected Ranbir as a producer “Ranbir is the producer too and his neck is in the noose Who the hell are you [Bash] to do all this It is ridiculous that a producer hadn’t seen his product a day ahead of the film’s release You may be the biggest director in the world but nobody would like to work with you because you are irresponsible There is somebody else’s money involved in this I trusted you and this is what you give us Ranbir hasn’t held back on spending money on it” Rishi said Jagga Jasoos was also not released in few key markets like Gulf ahead of its release in India as is the ritual followed by other Bollywood films When asked about the same Rishi said “It did not release in the Gulf on Thursday because it was only delivered to them on Thursday This is unreasonable and irresponsible You may be thinking you are making the Taj Mahal but you are supposed to make it ready on time There are economics and maths involved Everything is not just about creativity” Rishi also added that he doesn’t interfere with Ranbir’s career

Lok Sabha was even more fragmented than two years earlier Yet it was evident that Atal Bihari Vajpayee the moderate face of the BJP and a skilful builder of consensus would be able to cobble together a coalition that would put him and his party in power for much longer than the famous 13 days in May 1996 Once again his party was the largest in the Lok Sabha with its numbers having gone up Vajpayee’s ascension to power was therefore expected What was utterly unexpected however occurred across the political fence Rajiv Gandhi’s widow Sonia Gandhi had refused to succeed her husband after his assassination For over six years she continued to reject any political office She had stayed completely aloof from the 1996 polls But in 1998 she offered to lead the Congress’s campaign Even so she had flatly declined to contest the election herself In March 1998 however she decided to accept the post of Congress president The ouster of the luckless and enraged Sitaram Kesri was little short of a bloodless coup In 1996 when the Congress tally in the Lok Sabha had slumped to 140 (from 244) PV Narasimha Rao was blamed pilloried and thrown out Two years later the party won 141 seats but its vote share fell Yet Sonia was praised and indeed hailed as a conquering hero Some Congress leaders argued that but for her leadership the party’s share of Lok Sabha seats might have dwindled to a double-digit figure something that did happen last year Seventeen years ago the country started watching the performance of both the new prime minister and Congress president At the start of his tenure as PM Vajpayee wisely put on the back-burner some of the Sangh Parivar’s cherished plans which were unacceptable to many including several allies in the National Democratic Alliance The three items were: the abolition of Article 370 of the Constitution; the construction of a Ram temple at Ayodhya; and the enactment of a uniform civil code Ironically the qualities that made Vajpayee attractive to the electorate and allies earned him the displeasure of many powerful elements within the Sangh It is no secret that the RSS did not let Vajpayee allocate the portfolio of finance to Jaswant Singh who had to be given the ministry of external affairs instead A prominent member of the RSS called the PM a “mukhota” (mask) implying that he was a mere figurehead and the real power rested in the hands of leaders like LK Advani who in the mid-1980s had replaced the more popular Vajpayee as president of the BJP and had then led the movement for the Ram temple as a counterblast to the reservations for OBCs as recommended by the Mandal Commission and introduced by then PM VP Singh In Vajpayee’s government Advani was home minister Later again largely at the insistence of the RSS he was elevated to the post of deputy PM It is also widely known that the main target of the Hindutva votaries within the ruling establishment was Brajesh Mishra Vajpayee’s all-powerful principal secretary Repeated demands by the RSS for his removal were met by Vajpayee’s terse retort that this matter was non-negotiable In any case Vajpayee a likeable man and spellbinding orator dug his heels in and ruled as best he could Since a lot of things happened during the Vajpayee years these will be discussed in due course A note should now be taken of Sonia’s debut in active politics that she usually claimed to abhor The truth is that except for some time after Rajiv’s assassination she was not entirely out of the Congress’s affairs Rao was not her first choice as successor to her husband as Congress president and putative PM Moreover Rao spent his five years as PM under “Sonia’s shadow” However as Congress president she began reasonably well even if she wasn’t yet conversant with the bewildering complexities and intricacies of Indian politics Her first decision was not to listen to those of her loyalists who wanted her to not lose any time to bring down Vajpayee’s fragile government The fall of the government she believed would be good but the Congress shouldn’t go out of its way to bring this about The second step she took was to have a brainstorming session of her party at Pachmarhi a resort in Madhya Pradesh where two decisions were taken One to reverse the 1991 resolve to liberalise and globalise the Indian economy and return to Indira Gandhi’s policy to champion the cause of the “poor” Two the Congress conclave decided that the party would return to power on its own steam and have nothing to do with coalitions Sonia and her cohorts continued to ride the Pachmarhi high horse for two years before they realised that they were being unrealistic The writer is a Delhi-based political commentator For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express

effective in curing speech disorder in people who have suffered a stroke or brain injury Dr Rachel Wenkefrom University of Queensland (UQ)has shown that the treatment may be helpful for dysarthria patients suffering from stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI) Dysarthria is a speech disorderwhich negatively affects a person’s ability to communicate as he/she can be difficult to understand due to sounding as though he/she slurred The program was aimed at assisting Parkinson’s patientsand Wenke is the first to trial the method’s effectiveness in a group study involving other neurological conditions “This research will also help to provide speech pathologists evidence for treatments for the disorderwhich may also encourage further research in the area” she said In the studythe researchers enrolled 26 participants ranging from 18 to 88 years who had experienced stroke and TBI and compared the efficacy of the new treatment with traditional dysarthria therapy It was found that participants displayed positive effects of a louder and clearer voice and slower rate of speech after receiving the treatment Alsomany participants reported increased confidence in their ability to communicatewhich significantly improved their quality of life and well-being “For instanceafter receiving the treatmentone participant reported that the quality of his relationship with his wife had actually improved because his wife could now understand himwhereas before treatmentthey would hardly communicate” said Wenke She added: “My findings have also shown that people who lived with dysarthria for up to 21 years were able to make improvements following treatmenttherefore the mindset of not treating patients who have not improved in one or two years should be challenged” For all

Published: April 8 2017 7:34 pm Priyadarshan: Why are we insulting Akshay Kumar If he was a bad actor how is he one of the top stars of the film industry for so many years Top News I knew I had about five pertinent questions for Priyadarshan the 64th National Awards jury head He has been the centre of attention since the announcement yesterday but what was supposed to be another ‘Q&A’ veered into discussion and debate on the winner’s list with the director concluding “I shall watch Aligarh” I started by asking him about the trolling that the National Awards has invited for Akshay Kumar’s win as the best actor and the claims that his long-standing friendship with the star helped him achieve the feat Priyadarshan shot back asking “Why are we insulting an actor If he was a bad actor how is he one of the top stars of the film industry for so many years 38 people decided to award him and these people are sensible Does that mean they are fools Also last year Mr Amitabh Bachchan got the best actor trophy (for Piku) and Ramesh Sippy was on the jury no one questioned that When Ajay Devgn won for Gangaajal Prakash Jha was on the jury That time also no one said anything” Audience argues that those were better performances of their respective times as well To which Priyadarshan argued “We considered both Rustom and Airlift and felt Akshay showed versatility In Rustom his performance was dramatic while in Airlift it was realistic You tell me who could have been the choice then” Aamir Khan perhaps for Dangal if the popular perception is something to go by I said Obviously not impressed with the option for Aamir doesn’t believe in awards Priyadarshan said “Why should we give an actor who rejects awards When someone is saying he does not believe in awards then why should we give it to him” But shouldn’t the award be based on the merit and an actor’s opinion of it be of secondary value He countered the argument saying “This is not any other award… It is the President award By saying that you won’t take it you are insulting So it is better to give to someone else” The filmmaker himself a National Award-winner added that people should accept the decision taken by the jury of National Awards “People should respect it National Awards are not based on people’s votes You have to accept it Now if High Court passes something will you say we don’t accept it So when you have a jury respect its decision” The biggest and probably the most disappointing takeaway from this year’s National Awards according to many – from critics to the audience was that one of the most powerful Hindi films of 2016 Aligarh got no place in the winner’s list The film was directed by Hansal Mehta and based on the life of Dr Shrinivas Ramchandra Siras who was terminated from his job because of his sexual orientation Siras who was the professor teaching Marathi at the Aligarh Muslim University later committed suicide When asked about it the director sounded a little exasperated having answered this already to other scribes He said that there were many Marathi films which were “much ahead” of Aligarh “Aligarh didn’t make it to the final list It got rejected by the jury of Bombay It never reached me I haven’t seen the film Also homosexuality is a personal problem not a social issue” When people are discriminated against in the society on the basis of their sexual preferences it is a social issue isn’t it I asked him He continued “I don’t mean to say that I am against homosexuality It is a personal choice All I mean is that homosexuality as a topic is dealt in many Hindi films What I think is that the jury of Bombay might have felt that other films were ahead of Aligarh They spoke about social issues like caste” In the same breath Priyadarshan wondered – if there’s such a hue-and-cry about the film right now why was it ignored at other film awards Of course other accolades eluded the movie and exactly that’s why people thought the most respected awards in the country National Awards would recognise its merit like they have done with other films and talents in the past I said Also Read:Happy Birthday Allu Arjun: Duvvada Jagannadham actor celebrates birthday with fans and family seepics The filmmaker then revealed “Sometimes we have been forced to choose from bad films This happened because the final list didn’t have good films they got rejected at the lower level only In the past it even happened with my film Sila Samayangalil So we have given a recommendation that there should be an increase in the number of films which make it to the final list so that many good films have the scope of getting recognition” In the conversation he also opined that people should watch the films that have won the honours before saying that those which didn’t make it were better and towards the end of the interview he said “I wanted to watch Aligarh but couldn’t as it didn’t reach to me (Many are talking about it) so I will definitely watch it” For
