Pradeep Kumar Meena Beneath the fluttering tricolour at the Central Park in Connaught Place, Pradeep Kumar Meena, who was expelled from Indian Institute of Technology-Roorkee in B.Tech. first year for “poor” grades, solemnly recounted his ordeal: his dismissal last year; spending several nights at Delhi railway stations to get appointments with political leaders; constant shuttling between Delhi, Roorkee and Rajasthan and the lack of means for legal recourse. From Mahaveerji village of Rajasthan’s Karauli district, Meena who suffers from impaired mobility had bagged first position in JEE (advanced) examination in persons with disability (PwD-ST) category. A first-generation student, Meena had prepared for the examination in Kota, for which his farmer father had borrowed Rs 3 lakh on usurious rate. Talking to this newspaper on a foggy winter night, Meena was stoic, but desperation was palpable. Lean and limber, Meena had met over 40 leaders, including Union HRD minister Smriti Irani and BJP president Amit ...

Ghayal Once Again: Wounds wide open 5.2.2016 deccanherald.com
Narendra Jha Director: Sunny Deol The man has aged, but his dhai kilo ka haath hasn't. So when Sunny Deol returns after 16 years — still licking his first wound — more baddies are bound to be battered by those heavy-duty limbs. Deol dutifully goes through the beating-to-pulp routine, but restrains his lungs, thankfully. The vigilante of 1990-hit Ghayal did a fresh job then. Nobody could better him. Now, after two decades, when he takes on the corrupt system once again, the hangover shows. With no formidable opponent and with just four students to protect, our man (who is also the film's director) just lets his superhero powers snooze in the office of Satyakam — a media group of which he is the heart, soul and expose expert. An RTI activist (Om Puri) is murdered and Deol gets to work his muscles upon a bunch of "phoren" goons. The men are sent by an industrialist — an effective and suave Narendra Jha — who has a finger in every Mumbai pie. The tycoon and his spoilt son keep ...
