  • Movie Review: Baby

    Shilpa Jamkhandikar
    22 Jan 2015 | 8:58 pm
    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar (Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters) As a rule, Bollywood can’t get its crime/espionage/action thrillers right. It’s either too much emotion, too many jingoistic statements or too many holes in the script. But wonder of wonders, Neeraj Pandey gets it right. Almost. “Baby” is a fast-paced, smartly written and well-acted film that never wavers from its subject. Even if it doesn’t always keep you in suspense, it doesn’t let you wander too far. Pandey takes inspiration from Hollywood espionage films, most…

    22 Jan 2015 | 10:54 am
    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar A new film that lionizes late right-wing leader and popular Mumbai politician Bal Thackeray and endorses his often divisive policies and philosophies looks ready to stoke more anti-immigrant feelings in the city. “Balkadu” (a bitter potion given for digestive problems) is produced by Sanjay Raut, leader of the Shiv Sena (Shivaji’s Army), and is set to release on Friday, Thackeray’s 89th birthday. The film contains plenty of venom against outsiders who come to Mumbai, and even justifies violence against those that don’t support the cause of Marathi people,…

    By Shilpa Jamkhandikar (Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters) The best thing about Abhishek Dogra’s new film “Dolly ki Doli” is that it is all of 100 minutes long. Whatever flaws the script might have, whatever acting that goes haywire, goes by in such a flash that you don’t have time to dwell on it. Sonam Kapoor plays Dolly, a sweet-faced con who is a serial runaway bride. She charms men, convinces them to marry her and then splits, looting them of everything before she goes. Her gang is an assorted crew of other cons, all of whom play…

Nihalani, whose last film production was in 2008 titled “Khushboo: The Fragrance of Love”, is seen as being close to the ruling BJP party. He made this music video during campaigning for last year’s general election. Nine other board members were also appointed by the government, which included BJP spokesperson and actor Vani Tripathi, filmmaker Ashoke Pandit and writer Chandra…

    Amit Varma
    14 Jan 2015 | 7:52 pm
    This is the 33rd installment of my fortnightly poker column in the Economic Times, Range Rover. One of the ironies of poker is that at a nine-handed poker table, all nine players believe that they are profitable, if not the best player at the table. This obviously cannot be the case. Poker is a negative-sum game: the rake takes a percentage of each pot or tournament, and winners win less than what losers lose. Also, easily more than 90% of players are long-term losers, and most of the winners are just marginal winners. So what’s going on here? I have two answers for you: 1. The nature…

  • The Myth of the Made Hand

    This is the 32nd installment of my fortnightly poker column in the Economic Times, Range Rover. There is no term in poker that is as dangerous for the novice player as ‘made hand.’ Newcomers to poker divide all hands into two categories: made hands and drawing hands. If they have hit a pair or better, they say they have a made hand. If they are drawing to a flush or a straight, they call it a drawing hand. This is a terrible way to think about poker, especially when it informs your decision-making. For example, some players I know find it hard to fold a made hand, and never raise…

The flop came K72 with two spades and a club. (The king was a spade.) Original raiser checked, MP2 bet, cutoff folded, I called, small blind overcalled, the others folded.

Before dinner, they set out chips, vegetables and dip, shrimp, a bowl of punch and sodas. Their 17-year-old son, Jeremy, had Prader-­Willi, and they often…
  • The Great Indian Rail Yatra Part One: Varanasi (SUPER LONG PHOTO ESSAY!)

    21 Jan 2015 | 12:09 am
    This December, the Good Thing and I decided to go on an "adventurous" winter vacation. We would take a train across North India, see a few sights, and then catch a train from Jhansi all the way to Goa. We--well, I--called this our Great Indian Rail Yatra. It was going to be EPIC.  We booked all our journeys about two months in advance, but nothing was confirmed by the time we were ready to go. Probably a good thing, because at the last minute, we ditched our Goa plans to go off to Gulmarg and learn how to ski (but that is a story for another post.)Our journey was still somewhat epic, but…

    It’s the beginning of the New Year, all the parties are winding down, it’s cold outside (if you live in the North) and it’s about the time when I become an unseasonable grump. My head hurts from too many late nights, my bank balance dips from travelling and eating out and all that nonsense and worst of all, I am always constantly cold so unless I snuggle up to the room heater all day, I remain a shivering mess. However, there are a few nice things to be said about a New Year. Possibilities. Ideas. A sense of blank pages and what will the future hold? Technically you could feel this way…
  • TC Tribute Week: Skuin Who Won Our Hearts And Disappeared

    Meenakshi Reddy Madhavan
    19 Dec 2014 | 12:07 am
    Today's post by a writer I admire very much (and who wrote to tell me about her cat after TC went). Janice Pariat may be a name you're familiar with already (and if you're not, get reading!). This is a story about her cat, Skuin, who was there one day and then not. Some cats just show up and stay as long as we need them. That is the essence of cat. (Previous TC Tribute Week posts here and here. My obituary for TC here.) She came to me a granted wish. My X-boyfriend and I had visited Friendicoes in the hope of finding a kitten waiting to be homed. “Come back in two-three weeks,” they…

    10 Jan 2015 | 7:26 am
    After around three years, Moods have come out with another campaign. The new campaign themed " Play it Right" is also a sort of repositioning for the brand. In the last campaign, the brand adopted a naughty " Your Time, Your Place " positioning.The new campaign   themed around the man who is playing it right takes the focus back to the man. In one of the earlier campaign - My Man, the campaign put the focus on the women which made the campaign standout from the rest of the crowd. The " Your time, your place " was a clutter-breaking campaign with a touch of humor. The new campaign -…

A brand globally owned by Henkel  was created in 1951. Sold in over 22 countries, the brand was launched in India in 1999.

This is the first launch from Titan after the company has rebranded itself as  Titan Company. The launch of SKINN is a smart move because in my personal opinion, Indian perfume market is at a nascent stage with very little penetration.Business Line puts the penetration at 4%.SKINN as a brand is launched with an endorsement from Titan. It was wise for Titan not to launch this brand as a sub-brand like Titan SKINN, rather SKINN is…

    The Big Picture

  • India set to overtake China?

    15 Jan 2015 | 2:53 am
    Optimism about the Indian economy is alive despite 2014-15 being largely washed out. We have commentators again talking of India overtaking China in the second half of the decade. They were saying so at the beginning of the decade as well. At that time, however, China was growing at over 8 per cent. What commentators meant then was that India would inch towards 9 or 10 per cent and thus overtake China.Today, the overtaking, if it happens, will be at a different level. And it will happen later than commentators had predicted. Chinese growth is poised to fall below 7 per cent. The World Bank…

    Shareholders have reportedly approved the Ing Bank Vysya merger. Ing Vysya Bank unions are still seeking assurance that no jobs will be lost.There are important lessons to be drawn from the merger. One, new private banks, not foreign banks, are the big winners in the post-reform period. Public sector bank share will continue to decline but the loss will be to new private banks, not so much to foreign banks. Two, branches are crucial to cost competitiveness and growth in Indian banking- no new private bank would like less than a 1000 branches. Thirdly, for public sector banks, the branch…

  • Satyam case judgement

    9 Dec 2014 | 3:30 am
    The judgement in the Satyam case has been poorly reported in the media. Two things are noteworthy.First, the judgement in a trial court in Hyderabad relates to six relatively minor offences for which charges had been brought by the Serious Fraud Investigation Office. The  main trial is going on in a CBI court and the judgement in that trial is expected towards the end of the month. The fact that B Ramalinga Raju got six months in jail in the trial court should not give the impression yet that he's getting off lightly in the case.Secondly, the independent directors haven't been let off .

    Atanu Dey
    25 Jan 2015 | 3:32 pm
    January 26th, 2015 is the 66th “Republic Day” of India: the Constitution of India came into force on this day in 1950 as the supreme law of the land, replacing the Government of India Act of 1935. I doubt that very many Indians actually know what the Republic Day has to do with the constitution. If you doubt that, ask a few Indians what’s celebrated. To most, it is just a holiday with parades, patriotic songs and the same old politicians pontificating on television. Constitution? Well, we don’t worry about that. But we need to because the constitution matters. In a…

American writer, historian, philosopher. The first bit of news I got today through twitter was that Nawaz Sharif, the prime minister of the Islamic State of Pakistan had declared a day of national mourning and ordered the Pakistani flag to be flown at half mast because the king of Saudi Arabia died.

  • The most dangerous man to any government

    Atanu Dey
    22 Jan 2015 | 2:13 pm
    The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are. ― HL Mencken And usually these troublemakers are the ones who need to be muzzled through suppression of speech and expression.

He reported that it was the worst managed PBD he’d seen in his 15 years of attending the event. Among his other observations, he noted that some of the states are trying their best to attract investment from within and outside India. But, he said, he was distressed to see how poorly his ancestral state of West Bengal was doing. Nothing at all is happening there and it appears to be in terminal decline.

    The article title in Businessweek is “Why People Kill People Over Satire.” But the URL reads “Why the terrorists killed the satirists of Charlie Hebdo in Paris.” Curious, isn’t it? The article title generalizes too much, watering down the particular. Sure, Islamic terrorists are terrorists, and certainly terrorists are people. So one can substitute use the general “people” instead of the particular “Islamic terrorists.” The title of the article is overly general, the URL is somewhere along the middle, and the particularized question that…

Never mind that he was accompanied by one who was 'rich'. I had recalled the visit of some of our kids to a Mc D's and the fact that they were well treated.

    I have often written about the two Indias that exist, separated by an invisible yet impregnable wall. The picture above is my creche kids, all slum dwellers, enjoying a Happy Meal at Md Donald's Kalkaji. Yes I know fast food is bad for your health and am not one tom-tom its values. Far from that! But the kids had been taken out for an outing by a dear friend and this was a treat. And maybe also a cheeky way pf crossing that impregnable wall, armed with all the ammo needed should anyone have objected. The staff of this outlet was gracious and kind and the kids enjoyed the Happy meal. I guess…

  • Trivandrum Travel – Beaches, History and Ayurveda

    Arun Bhat
    26 Jan 2015 | 4:16 pm
    A version of this story was published in Vara, the inflight magazine of Maldivian Airline.  I went to Trivandrum with an open mind to discover the city. I saw under the urban masquerade, the essence of what Kerala is known for – long beaches, coconut groves, unlimited Ayurveda and heritage buildings with a touch of history. Besides the ubiquitous state-sponsored signs that welcome every visitor to the “God’s Own Country,” it would be hard to set Trivandram apart from any other city at its first sight. The signs of a true country of God, however, begins showing up on getting away…
  • Prayer Flags from Bhutan

    Arun Bhat
    19 Jan 2015 | 8:49 pm
    I saw this thick assembly of prayer flags at a small temple in rural Bhutan. My first instinct was to walk into them and photograph them with the camera facing up. I used my phone camera to make this image. Sometimes when you know what you are shooting and the subjects are not complex, it doesn’t matter what equipment you have. Nonetheless, I do not subscribe to the generally outspoken idea that your equipment doesn’t matter at all in making good images. Good equipment that can handle challenging conditions can be crucial to bring a photographer’s idea into life. Related…
  • Air Costa Review

    Arun Bhat
    17 Jan 2015 | 5:19 am
    This December, I had a chance to fly Air Costa, one of the newer airlines to operate in India. I travelled from Jaipur to Bangalore and my first impressions are fairly positive. A year before, in December 2013, I had chosen a larger airline to fly on the same route although Air Costa’s prices were the lowest when I booked. But I was unsure about travelling with a small and new airline and decided to play safe. This time, when a flight search showed up low-fares on Air Costa again, I decided to take it. It has been more than a year since Air Costa is operating. They are currently…

    A version of this story was published in a travel magazine four years ago.  No one warned me that the hills can be an addiction impossible to get rid of. Many years ago, over a long walk in search of grassy meadows and windy peaks high on the hills of the Brahmagiri Ranges, I sweated profusely and dragged my tired legs through the steep slopes that took me past thickly wooded surroundings. With a shoulder tired of a heavy backpack and legs worn out by the trying slopes, I wasn’t exactly in an ebullient mood half way up the journey. I coaxed my uncooperative body to keep going, cursing the…

    2 Jan 2015 | 1:16 am
    It’s no secret that I quite admire the City of Chennai. It might not be a swanky city, and has at times its hangover with the past (that can look a tad bit unwelcoming), but Chennai is home. One of Chennai’s happening things have been The Aircel Chennai Open Event that has been going on for 20 years now! Chennai is the home to the kickass Super kings, and the Chennaiyin FC, that it seems fairly natural that we host tennis as well, no? For those of you who have been dying to want to go watch a tennis match in person, I have a few passes that the folks at ACOPEN graciously said, I…
  • #NetNeutrality, the fight is still on

    Vijay Anand
    28 Dec 2014 | 11:20 pm
    The Media reports that Airtel, the (not-so-friendly) giant who planned to roll out additional charges on VoIP (Skype/Viber) calls, made via already paid Data Plans has rolled back. Its good news, but the battle is just half-won. India has a history of battles half won. Take the case of Kashmir, the case with Pakistan, the case of China, we somehow retreat when we sight success and the enemy recedes for the time being, arms and comes back and takes away half of our spoils and will end up being a thorn in our flesh for generations to come. Net Neutrality is not a war we need to fight for the…
  • Why Airtel Threatens the Future of Tech in India

    Vijay Anand
    27 Dec 2014 | 2:54 am
    Part 1 of this issue is blogged here. Back in the 70s when we were laying the telecom network in India, someone cheapened out. They laid the copper wires, but laid very poor quality copper – because we were a third world country at that point and telephones were a luxury. Years later when broadband came to the country, the same infrastructure became the bottleneck because the poor quality copper could not transmit more than 256kbps of data. The Govt had to make enormous investments in optic fibre to get internet access to most of the country. Truth is, that infrastructure is still…
  • #boycottairtel for Breaking Net Neutrality

    Vijay Anand
    25 Dec 2014 | 11:20 pm
    A few days ago, Airtel one of the bigger Telecom operators in the country, decided to make the announcement that they will be charging additionally for VoIP traffic being generated on their network. Usage of Skype / Viber will be charged extra, above and beyond the data plan and data charges that you already pay. While at a glance this looks okay, and as if its an operator trying to cope with lost revenue in voice calls, this is the first step in what is a dangerous road and stands against ensuring that there is free access to the internet in the future. In short, this is their first step…

    One of the doyens of Hindi Movies, Prem Nath, also belonged to the Sanskardhani. He had once built a cinema hall in the heart of the city, which was named as “Empire Theatre”. From outdoor screening of the film to cinema halls and now to multiplexes, there is a great history of the growth of Indian cinema. But I still carry a fascination with the old cinema halls. So, after coming out of the Jabalpur Station, I went to a crossing where the old building of that Empire Cinema was situated. It was completely in ruins. I felt much attached with the Empire cinema and climbed up the fallen…

It was not the first time in my life that I encountered them but still, they being the pride of my State, rakes up my pride too.

    Journalists see plenty of disease, despair and death in the line of duty. Even if we do not entertain prospects of immortality, our near-constant exposure to the dark and grim side of life somewhat inures us to its only certainty. But what when it hits home? Krishna Vattam, for 40 years the Mysore correspondent of the Bangalore-based dailies Deccan Herald and Praja Vani, has been there, done that—and survived to tell the tale. In a new book, Joy of Conquering Cancer: A Spiritual Dimension, to mark the silver jubilee of his triumph, cancer-survivor Vattam describes how he heard the bad…

    10 May 2014 | 2:09 am
    The differences in the mindset of South Indians and North Indians has been the object of much fascination and in no small measure, pride and envy. The stereotype of the rough, rugged, aggressive, foul-mouthed, back-stabbing, money-minded, itching-for-a-fight “Punjabi/Bhaiyya/Bihari” stands in stark contrast to the soft, docile, introverted, passive, friendly “Madrasi”. The reasons usually trotted out for this obvious gap are the rougher terrain in the north, the inhospitable climate with extremes of summer and winter, and the number of wars and invasions at the hands…

    The talk titled “ Godrej Legacy and Winning in India” was delivered by Nadir Godrej at Enterprise Dubai 2014 on December 20th, 2014. It started with our illustrious founder ‘We couldn’t have asked for someone sounder Thoughjust a lawyer by Profession, Invention was a strong obsession. His first case was in Zanzibar And though he proved to be a star, The fact that he was forced to lie, Then made him feel he could not ply This dubious practice any more, As honesty was at his core. So values played a role for sure We will ensure that they endure. Now Mahatma Gandhi was a friend.
  • A 1,200-Year-Old Flame Draws Parsi Pilgrims

    arZan
    23 Jan 2015 | 5:58 am
    The town of Udvada, in India’s northern state of Gujarat, is home to the holiest Zoroastrian site in India: a flame burning since around 800 A.D. Zoroastrians revere fire as a link to divinity and pray or meditate in fire temples. Several hundred priests once tended to this fire temple, called Iranshah, in Udvada, and many more Parsis lived in the village. In recent decades, most have moved to Mumbai, a few hours to the south and visit only occasionally. However, moving a fire temple requires painstaking, carefully executed rituals, so Udvada will likely remain Iranshah’s home for many…

    If ever cricket produced a maverick batsman who hasn’t lived up to his potential even after 17 years of top class cricket, it is Shahid Afridi. And does that even slightly bother him? Absolutely not, I can assure you! The phenomenon called Afridi It is slightly ironic that I write this after Afridi has played not one, but two match winning knocks in succession. Yet when this 21 year old (oops, was he older than that?) walks into bat the next time, the fielding team knows that a wicket is always round the corner. But on his day, Afridi can win you matches from impossible situations. When he…

    By Ezra Rynjah: To my patriotic brethren, Two decades ago, Republic Day seemed like such a strange and distant holiday for me in terms of its meaning and significance. Yes, I remember spending the morning in front of a television at my aunt’s, watching phallic objects that could explode being paraded around and followed by swathes of coordinated dancers in over-starched uniforms who only knew one robotic move. I also recall threats against public celebration from local Nationalists who despised such display but dreamed of a chance to exhibit their own phallic objects. However, growing up,…

  • Introducing Democrazy!

    amreekandesi
    25 Jan 2015 | 6:16 pm
    Today the great Indian democracy celebrates its 66th Republic Day. In the years since independence, we are now older, more mature, with streaks of grey beginning to show in the receding hairline. We’ve seen wars, we’ve seen elections, we’ve seen political fiefdoms, we’ve seen the Hindu rate of growth, and we’ve seen a presumably ‘Hindu’ government finally in power and leading the way. For a nation of India’s size and diversity, it often seems like a miracle that we haven’t managed to collapse around our own contradictions and conflicts.

    Modi ji always said that he will promote industrial growth and especially manufacturing, under his Make in India campaign. True to form. there is a new small-scale industry in town. The industry of outrage. The industry of fear-mongering. The industry of spreading so many lies that it all starts appearing to be true. Because he who shouts loudest is the one who is right, in this modern world. I picked up the newspaper today morning and went to the editorial page, hoping for another exciting Chetan Bhagat piece on what young Indian men or women want. Unfortunately that wasn’t to…

    I am a Hindu. I was born to Hindu parents and became one by default. Is my religion a part of my identity? Perhaps. Do I care much about it? Perhaps not. Do I believe in god? Certainly. Human life is too much of a miracle to not believe in god. For all the scientific progress man has made over the years, I don’t think we have been able to create anything remotely close to the human body in terms of complexity, intelligence and longevity. Ironically then, the problem with religion is us humans. We are the ones who have made professions out of religion. We are the pundits who hold on to…

    THE ARYAVARTA CHRONICLES : BOOK 3KURUKSHETRAWritten By : Krishna UdayashankarThe book says that it is "The Epic As It Was Never Told"; well, it is all of that. This is a book that has churned up everything in The Mahabharat, and made it into a story that is unbelievable, and incoherent. I rate it 2 stars out of 5, at the most 3 stars; and these are for the writing and the prose, which is top-notch. Credit where credit is due. Not only that, the plot build-up and the entire story is told in a stupendous and taut narrative, literally edge of the seat stuff throughout, and at a frenetic…

    The War on Terror, and the US-Pakistan leading it, has always been a topic of intense interest and debate in India, for obvious reasons. This is usually considered as one singular situation, when in reality there are two distinct parameters at play. This is a geo-political problem with socio-cultural undertones, with roots deep in the past, going back to before independence. While geopolitical strategies may be new, the mental attitude and societal approach of The West is a function of its history, just as our societal approach is a function of our history.This is an exceedingly complicated…

It explores new areas in our contemporary and recent history post independence without being a history book; and gives a narrative that raises hard questions and introduces varying viewpoints, all while giving deep insights, as well as an inside look at Page 3 Society and…
