Dear Bescom, are you still in primitive world: B'lureans 17.9.2019
Bengaluru: If there is one magic wand that turns the entire city dark it is the sudden rain. Despite repeated complaints by residents about power cuts immediately after rains, Bescom is still following the age old tradition of cutting the power religiously. Several areas in the city like BTM Layout, Hennur, Venkatapura, Koramangala, Jakkasandra, New Micro Layout, Hosur Road, Basaveshwarnagar, Tavarekere, Kaggalipura, Attiguppe and other areas were without power as rain came pouring late evening. "Are we living in a primitive world or what? When it rains, Bescom connection is immediately pulled out and is restored only when the rain stops. What is the connection between rain and power? It is the Silicon Valley and we are supposed to be advanced," said Mr Sunil Kumar, a resident of Venkatapura. Many Bengalureans took to social media to vent their anger over the incapability of Bescom. They argued why there should be a power cut when it rained. "Bescom's Twitter handle lists power ...

The point blank truth 17.9.2019
In the dark times, will there also be singing? Yes, there will also be singing, about the dark times. Raven, the directorial debut of theatre person and wannabe filmmaker Adarsh Kumar Aniyal, is a tight slap on the face of naysayers, the ones who never admit that casteism, oppression and racism exist. It"s these lines of German poet Bertolt Brecht that might immediately hit you when the 4.17 minutes of Raven ends. As the bluish screen fades and end credits roll, moments of silence might follow — of surprise, numbness, goosebumps and realisation. Raven, the directorial debut of theatre person and wannabe filmmaker Adarsh Kumar Aniyal, is a tight slap on the face of naysayers, the ones who never admit that casteism, oppression and racism exist. "Malayalis feel that casteism is something that happens in other parts of the country and definitely not in Kerala," says Adarsh, who is glad about the reception to his work of protest featuring his father Ambujakshan, a folklore artist. The ...

These terrible fashion trends are making a comeback 16.9.2019
Washington: Some extremely hideous fashion trends are ruling right now and are showing no signs of slowing down. Ugly fashion is no longer just a passing trend but seems like it is here to stay. I bet you can't scroll through your Instagram feed for a very long time without coming across a pair of chunky 'dad' sneakers, loose-fitting baggy jeans, a bucket hat or the recent revivals of Birkenstocks and Uggs. The fashion world seems to be throwing away the rulebook out the window and experimenting with hideous trends, reported CNN. This wave of unconventional designs has been on the rise for a few years now, but the ugly clothing trends are no longer niche, they have officially gone mainstream now. But what's behind the staying power of this unconventional fashion? Some say it's a reaction to decades of over-sexualized women's clothing, from high heels to bustiers. In the modern age, women are re-evaluating their roles in society and choosing comfort over style. In an era of ...

Justin Ashar is not the usual artist.  He found a way to incorporate Indian instruments into the mainstream.  As other DJs around the world mix top-100 pop tracks, Justin wanted to incorporate and fuse Indian culture with the rest of the world. More specifically, he experimented mixing the Indian harmonium with well-known songs and became quite popular because of it.
