Sunita Williams' ReturnNothing in recent times was perhaps so symptomatic of the difference between East and West, between the US and us, and between two cultures that have grown so far with completely different priorities, as Sunita Williams’ return from the International Space Station. Before she made a safe landing, and for a few hours thereafter, the coverage on the TV channels in India was pretty similar – they were showing Sunita’s relatives in Gujarat, and schoolchildren from all over the country, particularly Karnal, from the school that Kalpana Chawla had attended. They were showing pujas being conducted and prayer songs being sung, all for the safe return of Atlantis with Sunita and others on board.

Turmeric A startling shade of yellow that seemed to afflict many women around me, particularly on Fridays, when I first arrived in Chennai 23 years ago, was the first glimpse I had of how important turmeric (‘manjal’ in Tamil, ‘haldi’ in Hindi) was to people in South India. Of course, my own mother and grandmother had long been singing its praises. Turmeric and ground pepper added to warm milk was the remedy I had been told for sore throats and colds. Turmeric and ‘besan’ paste, preferably mixed with cream, was the magical beauty treatment practised by Indian women down the ages. No Indian kitchen could be considered complete without this golden ingredient.

On the Alter of AmbitionMost ambitious men and women, identify for themselves money and prestige as their career goals, relegating all other priorities to the background. Nothing else matters. Ask Ruhi, a successful officer in a multinational bank. Or Vinod, her husband, a busy executive with a leading ad agency. Ruhi and Vinod have been married for over seven years, have two kids, both living with Ruhi’s parents in Jhansi. 

“This is a sacrifice we have to make. We’re young now and can build our careers. In any case this money we’re earning and saving is ultimately for our kids.” Cool. And what about her role as a mother? Vinod is most dissatisfied with the scheme of things. He believes while it is just right for a man to give every waking moment to his career, it is unwise for women to do so.

Bheja FryFilm : Bheja Fry
Starring : Rajat Kapoor, Ranvir Sheorey, Sarika, Vinay Pathak, Milind Soman
Director: Rajat Kapoor

Bheja Fry is supposed to be a comedy and there are those who might perceive it to be so. But with a brilliantly funny star cast that could have done wonders for it , the film somehow underutilizes their capacities.

The story is set in Mumbai where a young couple (Sarika and Rajat) are part of the entertainment industry. Rajat has the habit of inviting entertaining but foolish people to a dinner party every weekend to laugh at them with his friends. He lands up with Vinay Pathak who is a singer.
