Because It Didn’t Kill Me

Because It Didn’t Kill Me

A couple of months ago, on a stormy night, I packed my bags, held Boo’s leash, and boarded an auto, after walking out of a life which I thought would get better. To my dismay, the life that I had lived for a decade had just disintegrated. I was torn between taking another big leap of faith, […]






‘A Murder Was Ignored’

‘A Murder Was Ignored’

Writer’s note : This post was published first in The New Indian Express, Bengaluru on October 12  In a tranquil home that is over 35 years old but is as timelessly evocative as a piece of great literature, author and Padma Shri awardee Shashi Deshpande is nursing a cup of tea. She is grateful that the […]






Too Many Fractured Realities

Too Many Fractured Realities

We all have Rashomon realities. We may be living one story but those watching us maybe seeing something very different. The Rashomon effect of course is the offshoot of a Kurosawa classic where colliding interpretations swirl around a crime. Not hard to see why Vishal Bhardwaj would choose the same technique to tell the story […]






Nuance Is Rare On Indian TV

Nuance Is Rare On Indian TV

Indian television does not usually allow a great deal of space for symbolism and subtlety but sometimes while surfing channels, you come across something that is done right, with a certain amount of empathy. Epic Channel for instance is replaying Tagore’s memorable fiction and even though nobody can redo Charulata after what Ray imbued the […]






The Changing Face of Success

The Changing Face of Success

The idea of entitlement is not new to the Indian film industry. Nor is the hegemony fuelled by privileged stars and their coteries. So it took someone of Nawazuddin Siddqui’s talent, 15 years to land his first solo lead in Manjhi (though he played a pivotal part in Gangs of Wasseypur)  but all it took […]






Teachers Who Unlock Inner Doors

Teachers Who Unlock Inner Doors

“I was never a dancer, never a gymnast, never naturally peaceful, patient or confident. I generally felt socially awkward, private, introverted, comfortable reading and studying but not talking, sharing. I never ever felt beautiful or elegant, always felt like the small girl in the corner. Then one day after many years of Yoga practice, I […]






We Can’t Let Aarushi Talwar Rest In Peace

We Can’t Let Aarushi Talwar Rest In Peace

We cannot let go of her. Of her parents. Or their tragedy. Or the speculations about what could have happened on the night of 15-16 May, 2008 in an upper-middle class Noida home. And so (they changed the ‘w’ in the title to ‘v,’ just in case) a film about her death will hit the […]






The Politics Of A Stare

The Politics Of A Stare

About a week ago, I visited Charminar in Hyderabad. My friends and I had been quite excited about the trip and couldn’t wait to shop for trinkets and try the much talked about biryani and kababs. However,the minute we stepped out of the cab, it started pouring, and the harassment began. It’s not like I […]






Vicky Kaushal: A Staggering Debut

Vicky Kaushal: A Staggering Debut

  During one of the many special screenings of Masaan in Mumbai, Shabana Azmi came up to Vicky Kaushal and said incredulously, “Tum kaun ho? Kya kaam kiya hai tumne! (Who are you? What an amazing job!)  Come, you must meet Javed saab!’’ Javed Akhtar who was coming out of the theatre just at that […]






‘I Will Never Ignore The Voice Within’

‘I Will Never Ignore The Voice Within’

The imperishable memories Shweta Tripathi gathered while playing a small-town girl in Neeraj Ghaywan’s Masaan include the night when she sobbed over the end of a beautiful story. She recalls, “I cried not for what was happening to my character  but for what was happening to her story with Deepak. I just lay, looking up […]






How Bollywood Ceased To Be About Us

How Bollywood Ceased To Be About Us

Over a decade ago, at Alliance Francaise de Bangalore, I spoke with a youthful conviction on why Hindi cinema must never be dismissed as just another drug to keep the masses oblivious to the real issues of governance, poverty, disenfranchisement, corruption and more. When gently asked by the moderator, why Hindi cinema could not be […]






On Staying Curious

On Staying Curious

I read an article in the newspaper a while ago, about the ‘worst things to put on your online dating profile’- one of them was ‘loves to travel’-because who doesn’t? Saying you love to travel is kind of like stating the obvious- very few would give up the chance to see the world if money […]
