MUSIC OF THE ROCKS

  Take any kind of stone whether it is big or small or, black or brown, strong like quartz or soft like marble, just one chisel and hammer is enough to destroy its structure. The situation turns around when these hammer and chisel comes to the hand of Ram Sutar, the same structure of stone turns in to a beautiful face and music inside it oozes out. Ram Sutar is a master in understanding the music of stone and brings it in front of world. The way his hands accomplish this work is incomprehensible to others.    Ram Sutar is neither a craftsman nor a sculptor but he is a musician. Chisel and hammer a...

SINGING THE PATRIOTIC TUNES OF INDIAN CINEMA

 prem prakash The contribution of cinema in our society is over a century old in India. While the filmmakers have so far touched almost all aspects of the country and society in their own ways, one thing the people have lapped up the most is patriotism, painted on the celluloid by Bollywood filmmakers for us. The list of filmmakers embedding patriotism among the people is long but dated. More importantly, the Indian cinema did not just sing the tunes of liberty after the country’s freedom, but it has been doing so since the count...

JAZZ IT UP FOR THE REPUBLIC DAY

Republic Day is one of the most significant days in the lives of every Indian. It was on 26 January 1950 that the Constitution of India was brought into force as the ‘law of the land’ after herculean efforts by our founding fathers. It took the Constituent Assembly 2 years, 11 months and 18 days to finalise the Constitution. We celebrate India’s sovereignty every year with much fanfare on the regal Rajpath. The President of India unfurls the national flag and confers the gallantry awards like Ashok Chakra, Kirti Chakras, Param Vir Chakra and Shaurya Chakras. Children also receive bravery awards for their extraordinary deeds on this occasion. The day also witnesses par...

What is the film ‘Toilet- Ek Prem Katha’ all about? Please don’t get carried away by the title of the film. Actually this is a totally comedy film wherein the heroine who resides in a slum falls in love with the hero  who is the owner of a toilet. They both fall in love and get married.  They have one motto in life as that is to ‘construct a toilet’ and they get down to the grass root level for doing the same. This film portrays the difficulties which thi...

DARK SIDE OF THE CITIES

Imagine a forlorn soul standing in a balcony at night, in a high-rise building, overlooking the city, thousands of stories transpiring behind closed doors and hundred thousand open windows - some darkened and some flooded with lights. Yet, in the wide assortment of stories, someone is lonely. We know that someone is disturbed inside but we never knock the door to share the pain. This is primarily an urban phenomenon. Despite the crammed spaces and surroundings teeming with people, the loneliness manifests in big cities, in absence of close connections, intimacy and kinship. Olivia Laing, author of ‘The Lonely City: ...

UNMATCHED BRILLIANCE

It is not often that some thespians render characters in films that stay evergreen. But there are also a select few characters that go beyond that and become part of our daily lives. Sukhilala from the all-time great film “Mother India”, directed by the late Mehboob Khan and released in 1957 is one such film. It has been more than half a century now, and yet the mean loan shark Sukhilala remains an integral part of our lives and conversations. Even today, villagers tease money lenders by addressing them as Sukhilala. It is ironic that many of those who use the name today are not even aware of its origin. Perhaps even...

From his days of distressing addiction to the phase of deaddiction in the US, then meeting first wife Richa, going to jail and how he was humbled there, Sanjay Dutt bares all to Sulabh Swacch Bharat lifelong treasures First of all I would like to clearly say that I have put all the controversies of my life far behind me. But I don’t want to forget a few things intentionally, things which taught me the real lessons of life. Even today I look back and ponder over those moments. In 1971, I worked as a child artist in Papa’...

OH New Year is here and many of us are looking forward with aniticipatory feeling as to what will the year 2017 be like. So we all like to look at the newspapers and books having predictions for 2017 by some famous Astrologers like Bejan Daruwala or Tarot Readers like Maa Prem Usha and all. But in this world apart from the Human Astrologers there are some non human Predictors who are creating great waves. I dedicate this article on them. While enjoying a trip to Chowki Dhani in Rajasthan with my wife, I, out of curiosity, put myself in front of a Parrot Astrologer, I never believed in these things at that time. The green fe...

So what’s up next? These days I am busy in endorsement of my modelling. Have got some offers in movies but I am not in a hurry. Mirzya was far below my expectations but that does not disappoint me. However, you know that my name has come from Sanskrit word saiyyam and these days I am actually implementing it, thereby interacting less with the media too. But soon I will come up with something good. You wanted to be a sportsperson but how come you landed in the field of acting? You are right. Since childh...
