In troubled waters 22.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
For centuries, people in India have known the stories of the 12 incarnations of Lord Vishnu including the Kurma (turtle) avatar. It is believed that this avatar helped the devas and the asuras churn out the amrut or life giving nectar from the ocean. In the scientific world, while there is little place for such mythological fiction, it is not wrong to assume that the turtles of our natural world are an important agent of life that are helping pass on crucial nutrients from the oceans to the lands. Because of their unusual life cycles, turtles spend their life in the seas but come on the shores for nesting and breeding thus enriching the energy-poor habitats on land such as the sandy beaches with marine nutrients. This simple ecological service by the turtles has been crucial in shaping the coastline of the country including that of Karnataka. And yet, the winds of change bring with themselves destruction, fragmentation and threats of poaching to the turtles, making it more and more difficult for them to ...

Beyond comedy 20.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Sometimes, Jason Segel wants to make you laugh, as he did on the sitcom How I Met Your Mother and in movies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall, the semi-autobiographical breakup comedy in which he wrote himself an unflattering nude scene. And sometimes, he's trying to make you think, as in The End of the Tour, in which he played the author David Foster Wallace. That more cerebral side of Segel is on display in The Discovery, now out on Netflix. Starting with the premise that a scientist (Robert Redford) has proved the existence of an afterlife, this science-fiction film considers the complications of such a breakthrough — particularly for the scientist's son (Segel) and the woman (Rooney Mara) he has fallen in love with. As Segel, 37, said in a recent telephone interview, all the roles reflect him in some form — a point the film tries to make, too. In The Discovery, he explained: "They offer you this opportunity to move to another plane of existence. The reality, when you try to do that, is that ...
