The Bucket List

Sometimes you might come across situations where you might be working really hard to push yourself ahead, but for some reason you seem to be stuck in just one place without seeing any hint of growth. This is when you need a break and maybe just sit back and think about what it is that seems to be going wrong. Go back to the initial stages of your life when things made sense and you felt that drive to do something substantial. Think about where you might be going wrong and take time out to work on it. Giving up on something does not mean that you are a loser, but instead allows you to speculate the situation and maybe get swiped by an aura of genesis where everything becomes clear to you. This might just help you perform better and at the same time help you grow.

En Dino Muzaffarnagar Ban: Jeopardy Of Free Speech

En Dino Muzaffarnagar, a documentary by late Shubhradeep Chakravorty, is the first to take a hammer blow by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) since the last general elections. The film has been banned on communal grounds, but the filmmakers and journalists who have had a chance to watch the film have other reservations. Clearly, the reasons are political. “It is highly and openly critical of one political party (BJP) and its top leadership by name and tends to give an impression of the said party’s involvement in communal disturbances. This is in gross violation of film certification guidelines. We see no infirmity in the order of CBFC”, said Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) after Shubhradeep Chakravorty appealed to it.

Exit Polls: BJP Needs More Faces

But how long can the BJP rely on the Prime Minister to carry all the major work of the party? The over-dependence on Narendra Modi to deliver the goods in state elections every single time is bound to mount work load on the Prime Minister. Given that the Defence cum Finance cum Corporate Affairs Minister, Arun Jaitley is regaining his health, the Prime Minister has a lot on his plate. A lot of work is supposed to be done to bring the economy back on track, empower defence, and work towards human development.

Changing Ownership Patterns of Media Industry And Their Repercussions

The story in India is no different. Since the liberalization of economy in 1991, media organisations have evolved and developed into industries. A handful of private media organisations have consolidated their empire by owning different media.

Walls To Rise In Tihar Jail: An Alternate Opinion

These eyebrow raising objects were found lying in areas where jail inmates loiter during their routine interval. The jail inmates have been swayed by the anti-social elements, found possessing such objects and hence been punished for the same.

Letters From An Average Kashmiri

It all started when my father was a freshly recruited jawan (soldier) in the Indian Army. It was 1980 and my father was posted in Kargil under the 1862 Independent Light Battery (artillery). Mahnga Khan was part of the 5/5 GR (FF) Gurkha Regiment, Frontier Force. Mahnga Khan was a live wire. He kept the entire unit entertained with his loud jokes and free and constant flow of shayaris (Urdu poetry). He was one of those rare people who have the ability to make sunshine out of rain. Nobody, absolutely nobody, could resist a hearty laugh when he got going. Such was his sense of humour. A victim of the 1947-48 Indo-Pak war that followed in Kashmir after the partition, he was a loner. His wife and children were separated from him during the war. He had no family, no home, nothing on him when he came to India.

An Effort To Introduce Kiran Desai To Feminism

In what can be only termed as “misogynistic” and “lousy”, Desai went on to argue that women in New York go to parties in “little high heels” and “tiny clothes” that apparently look “really horrible”. The fact that Desai, a public figure capable of representing India with her words and ideas, made the comment is quite problematic. It’s already bad enough that Indian women have to deal with the patriarchal mindset that dominates the country; with Desai taking an international platform to promote such a mindset is nothing but callousness.

This Gandhi Jayanti Become A Little More Wiser

Being an outsider who had studied Law in London and practiced in South Africa for 20 long years, Mahatma Gandhi reached India in 1914 to completely understand the political movement of his home country that was struggling for freedom. Through Gandhi’s endeavour, India under his leadership gained independence in 1947 after almost an entire century of struggle.

A Day From A Driver’s Diary In Gurgaon

Let’s rock and roll, shall we? Turn your right hand left and then left hand right. Now, tilt your upper torso toward left then right. Now goes your right foot ahead and then left. And if you are irritated by now then slap your forehead. Forty five minutes having spent on the road, with only one out of the three designated route covered, no doubt you couldn’t enjoy the little dance session back there! But what if you had paid attention to your surroundings?

Problem of Information Bottlenecks in News Gathering

Ever since childhood when I expressed my ambition of becoming a journalist, I was often confronted with surprise and told in an incredulous tone, “But you are so silent. You hardly speak!” What they meant was that I was always an introvert and the ideal personality type of a journalist was, in their opinion, everything but me and hereby I state some of the attributes that were associated with a journalist– bold, loud, argumentative, extrovert and so on. What is interesting is all of these are related to a personality type and not on an acquired professional skill of news hunting that made me think I could be a journalist too.
