Recorded music won't help in revealing bhava of composition: P S Narayanaswamy 21.10.2017
A winner of many awards and titles, including the Padma Bhushan, and Kalaimamani from the TN government, vidwan P.S. Narayanaswamy is certainly a torchbearer of the Semmangudi  tradition, evolving a style of his own with manodharma sangeetham. He spoke to Deccan Chronicle with the refined sensibility of a consummate Carnatic vidwan. PRESENT DAY FESTIVAL: Most welcome a trend.  The participation of many young musicians is a delight.  Sponsorship for the concert is essential these days, taking into count the economic considerations.  But yet, I am sad that "influence" plays a major role in accommodating them in the season, in which many deserving candidates are left out for want  of "public relations". Manodharma sangeetham: It will never become shallow.  The nirval nowadays, mostly seem to be a mere repetition of the sahitya in different octaves.  The manodharma sangeetham cannot be taught, but could be acquired only through intent listening. Over ...

Work closely with US, but keep options open 21.10.2017
On Wednesday, a week before US secretary of state Rex Tillerson is to arrive in India in what looks like a familiarisation visit to the region — he is due to visit Pakistan and Afghanistan as well — after assuming charge, he made a speech showing great friendship with India at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. We should welcome Mr Tillerson with warmth and pursue any practical ideas of common interest he may have, but be conscious that we today find ourselves in a world approaching a pluri-polar status. That basically means that, unlike in the bipolar Cold War era, interlinkages of many kinds will be reached among each other by key nations and there are no defined camps held down by immutable rules of security politics. In that sense, possibilities of promiscuous behaviour are distinct in today"s world. Nations like America, Russia, China and India will have multiple irons in the fire at any time as they seek to push their national interest. But still, ...

Madurai: Mystery surrounds death of 19-year-old Odisha girl 21.10.2017
MADURAI: A 19-year-old girl from Odisha, who was allegedly brought by a recruitment contractor to Dindigul, was tragically found dead in suspicious circumstances in a house near the town on Wednesday. While S. Thivya, general secretary of Tamil Nadu Textile and Common Labour Union claimed the girl Lakshmi Singh had died in a rented building managed by the recruitment contractor Selva Prakash in Puthupatti village, 20-km away from Dindigul, the police said she died at her relative"s house where she had stayed after reaching Dindigul. The contractor brought Lakshmi Singh from Odisha recently and kept her under his custody in the building so as to send her to work in textile mills after Deepavali, said Thivya. "How would the girl die within three days after she reached Dindigul due to stomach pain? The authorities are trying to hide the real cause of the death," she claimed. This incident also exposed how the helpless district administration was least bothered about the welfare of migrant ...

Cabbages & Kings: An open letter to my fellow Parsis 21.10.2017
"You succumbed to his persistence Spent time you had to waste — Victim to his insistence — But one can"t fault his taste..." From Aas Paas Rhymes by Bachchoo My Dear Bawajis and Banuon, Wallas and Wallis, Four score and seven years ago... no, sorry, 1,200 years ago, our ancestors, landed in Sanjan, Gujarat, fleeing the harshness of the Arab conquest of Persia. There is some story about the king of the territory demonstrating the lack of space in his kingdom by calling for a brimful cup of milk. Then the Zoroastrian leader of the boat-people called for a lime and squeezed it into the milk — and lo and behold the milk curdled, as milk must, and became yoghurt, causing the king to repent and say: "We need a bit of yoghurt, you are welcome." I have always thought this story somewhat improbable. Why would the king think that a boatload of immigrants would flood his schools with kids and his National Health Service hospitals with their halt and lame? Besides, ...

Dev 360: Hungry India - Are we angry enough? 21.10.2017
Do we really trail North Korea and Iraq in the malnutrition stakes? There have been outbursts of anger at India being ranked 100th out 119 countries in the latest edition of the Global Hunger Index by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI). Experts are quarrelling over the methodology and evaluation parameters and in a hyper-polarised India, it comes as no surprise that the hunger scores have triggered jousts between supporters and critics of the Narendra Modi government. Has malnutrition really worsened since 2014? The short answer — we don"t know because we don"t have the most recent data. But does the commotion over such ranks really matter when Santoshi, an 11-year-old girl in Jharkhand, died begging for rice last fortnight? According to a Web portal, the girl died crying for bhaat (rice). Her family didn"t have any. Her family"s ration card was reportedly cancelled because it was not linked to their Aadhaar number, say local Right to Food Campaign ...
