A feast of antipasti, recipes for the best starters in the world 31.7.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page

In the last of our four-part series on Italian cooking, we focus on antipasti, second to none among starters, drawing influence from around the globe to pique the palate – just remember to leave room for your mains

The best feast I ever ate was at an Anglo-Italian wedding in Naples some years ago. The reception was in a 15th-century palazzo, where we walked on to the terrace to find 25 metres of linen-covered tables groaning under the weight of antipasti. Five different kinds of mozzarella, every kind of charcuterie imaginable, salads like rainbows, olives patent-leather shiny and stuffed with almonds, mushrooms fried and pickled, fresh grilled anchovies and too many other delights to list.

We gorged greedily on what we took to be the wedding feast, at which point, a bell summoned us to a seven-course banquet

Abdul Kalam: The Human 30.7.2015 DNA: Wide Angle
Dr Kalam is no more. I cannot imagine India without him. The outpouring by the entire nation has been absolutely unprecedented. Dr Kalam is being referred to as the Missile Man. I will leave aside the ‘missile’ part of it and write about the ‘man’ part of it, the ‘human’ part of it, especially as I have seen from my personal lens. My first interaction with Dr Kalam was when I was a member of Scientific Advisory Committee to the Prime Minister in Rajiv Gandhi’s time.  This was in 1987-88.  I was given the responsibility of putting together a  draft of a perspective plan on the future of Indian Science & Technology. I needed to cover different issues of science & technology including Defense Research and Development.  I was trying to get hold of Dr Kalam but was unable to do so.  Finally, we accidentally sat together in a plane.  I still remember him profusely apologising for being inaccessible, explaining to me at great length as to how busy he was with his several projects. He asked me what was needed. ...

#LifeIsMusic: Get to know the Saxophone, an integral part of jazz music 28.7.2015 DNA: Mumbai
Jazz feels incomplete without Saxophone. The relatively young instrument was developed by Adolphe Sax, a Belgian instrument maker who lived in 19th century. Sax was looking to bridge a gap between sounds made by woodwind instruments like flute and brass instruments like trumpet. He made several changes to the bass Clarinate to get the results he wanted. He fashioned an instrument which had a single reed mouthpiece like a Clarinate, conical brass body like an Ophicleide and acoustics of French horn and Clarinate. Upon his move to Paris, then cultural centre of Europe, his instrument got the popularity it deserved. Adolphe Sax then, in the year 1846, received the patents for 14 designs of Saxophone ranging from Soparnino to Contrabass. Read the excerpt -  The Saxophone made its debut in an orchestra in Paris in 1844. “The Saxophone used to be played in military bands, initially,” says Raj Singh Sodha, an accomplished Saxophonist. Sax had kept the military bands of those days in mind, when he developed the ...

What goes on inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl? | Eva Wiseman 26.7.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Inside Out, Pixar’s new film, offers a helpful insight – and reveals the unexpected pressure to be ‘happy’ Like Yves Klein ’s deep, uncomfortable blue, Pixar should patent the particular happysadness you feel when you emerge from seeing its films. The teary wonder at nature and humanity that comes from watching anthropomorphised lamps fall in love and causes one to skip from the cinema, leaping over a puddle of yeah-that-was-definitely-vomit, to shrug regretfully at the guy who failed to nick your wallet outside Wasabi, and to fall asleep with a magical sigh, and to dream. Its new release, Inside Out , is perhaps my favourite yet. Despite it having no superheroes, no magic carpets, in fact nothing that flies at all. The film is set inside the brain of an 11-year-old girl, Riley, and the heroes are her five emotions. They bicker like colleagues in a call centre, taking night shifts to watch over Riley’s dreams – their window looks out on to five islands: Family, Honesty, Hockey, Friendship and Goofball, ...
