The Sporting TemperamentA recent Tamil hit film called ‘Unnale Unnale’ made a certain kind of female character register in unforgettable ways with the audience. This is the kind of woman who is always angry about something or the other, intensely critical of her partner for doing all the ‘guy’ things like drink with his buddies, arrive late, tell white lies, or try and crack stupid jokes to cover up his faults. Played by the beautiful Sada on screen, this character grates so intensely on one’s nerves that one is tempted to walk out of the film – before the much sweeter-tempered girl played by Tanissha can actually win the hero! While you watch the repeated tantrums of poor Sada, one wonders – can any person be so unsporting, so petty, so lacking in humour?

Chennai 600028: Youth and SportSPB Charan has produced a Tamil film with an intriguing title – what could this film with a pin-code name be all about? ‘Chennai 600028’ is, as promised, a film about the lower middle class tenements of R.A.Puram, Mandaiveli and R.K. Nagar in Chennai, where life throbs and teems in a tight circle. All day and night I listen to the sound effects of this particular area – hand pumps and arguments over water, drinking sessions and loud singing or cursing, roosters and hens, dogs and cats, and the blaring of the latest Tamil hits from radios and cassette players.

The side effects of BandhsKnown all over the world as the ‘general strike’, a weapon that was considered the ultimate expression of protest and dissent against government policies, the ‘bandh’ as we know it is a particularly Indian phenomenon. Unlike the Europeans, for whom the phrase ‘general strike’ was enough to induce terror, conjuring up images of millions of lost man-hours and productivity, we Indians tend to take the term ‘bandh’ with a big pinch of salt.

Jingle Bells All YearMuch has been said about the unfortunate propensity of Indian cricketers to turn into models every time they enjoy even a moderate amount of success on the field. It seems as if they just have to hit a couple of half centuries (not even a century!) or take more than two wickets in a match, and this is enough to make them endorsement emperors. You can’t turn around without one or the other cricketer’s face exhorting you to buy a nutritious milk drink, a soap, a bike, or a brand of soda (which is actually that brand of liquor, snicker, snicker). 

India’s run-up to the World Cup, even with Ganguly’s return, has hardly produced that kind of confidence which makes them appear as invincible winners. Yet, their advertising commitments continue unabated. It seems we are doomed to listen to their advice on where we should spend our next buck, even when we have sworn never to spend another rupee paying to see their matches! A whole generation of toddlers is growing up to believe that one becomes a member of the national cricket team only to become a model.
