Call of the wild 26.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
As I immersed myself in A K Ramanujan's beautiful folktale, 'A Story and a Song', one late Friday evening in January, I was surprised to learn that his birthplace is Mysuru. Hence, a trip was planned, but we decided to do something different this time — a visit to Janapada Loka (for my husband and me) and Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary (for our children). How did we go? We packed light and set out at 6 am in our XUV 500 on a chilly and clear Saturday morning. With two kids and an armed forces officer, I was busy oscillating between playing messy games with my children and maintaining travel decorum! Where did we go? Our first stop was Kamat Lokaruchi, right next to Janapada Loka. We embarked on a sensory journey with the 'rava dosa', 'mude idli', 'ragi dosa' and the aromatic filter coffee. My children gorged on the hot 'kesari bath' to finish off breakfast. Our next stop was Janapada Loka. This folk arts museum is unique and well-preserved. The life-size puppets in the Loka Mahal hall each tell a ...

Those joyful days 26.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
This picture was taken in our home in Rajajinagar in 1987. It was clicked by our friend D C Nagesh who wanted the four of us to strike a pose and we were more than happy to do so. Seen in the picture is myself along with my wife Vaishalli and our children Apurva and Ananya. Apurva was 10 and Ananya was six years old when this picture was taken. We lived in a joint family. Both Vaishalli's and my mother lived with us. Even though the two of us were busy with film work, Apurva and Ananya never felt lonely and isolated, thanks to the presence of their grandparents. The joint family system in those days was a great blessing. I remember Apurva to be a very jovial and happy child. He always held a stick in his hand and imagined himself to be the character of 'Bhima'. We had a large space in front of our house and the children would spend a lot of time playing there with their friends from the neighbourhood. As Apurva and Ananya grew up, Vaishalli and I never pressurised them to pursue any particular stream of ...

No FC for vehicles without speed governors, says High Court 26.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The High Court of Karnataka on Wednesday directed the Transport department and the commissioner for Transport and Road Safety not to issue fitness certificate (FC)for vehicles which are not fitted with speed governors.

A division bench comprising Chief Justice SK Mukherjee and Justice PSDinesh Kumar passed the order while hearing a public interest litigation.

The petitioner YN Nanjappa, who lost his son in a road accident, had moved the court seeking directions to the state government for making speed governors mandatory in vehicles manufactured prior to October 1, 2015.

He had also sought quashing of the government notification which exempted vehicles with a speed of less than 80 kmph, from installing speed governors.

The petitioner had prayed that speed governors be made mandatory for issue of fitness certificate for all categories of vehicles.

A shower of hues 26.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The rain may have washed away the match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), leaving the spectators a wee bit disappointed, but they made up for all the lost action on field by bingeing on food and beverages off field. The loud music by the DJs drowned the pitter patter of the rain and kept the crowds entertained till the match was called off. Sunrisers Hyderabad supporters Laurie H and Manikantan Nair, team heads of Cognizant from Hyderabad, had booked flight tickets in advance for their entire team to watch the match in Bengaluru. The team barely spent a few hours in the city but they termed their experience as 'colourful'. "We are a little disappointed that the match didn't happen, but we enjoyed spending some quality time with each other," said Manikantan Nair. This is Laurie's first IPL match and she says, "I've never been to an IPL match before and I find the atmosphere electrifying. I also bought team jerseys to wear to the match." Spectators like Riddhi and Vijay ...

No info from Centre on beacon ban: CM 25.4.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah appears to be uncomfortable talking about the Centre's recent decision to do away with red beacon lights for all ministers, bureaucrats and jugdes. "Why are you after red beacon?" he retorted on Tuesday when reporters sought to know whether he has got the red beacon removed from his vehicle. When his attention was drawn to the missing beacon on his official vehicle, he said: "We have not received any notification from the Centre yet. We will look into it and take appropriate measures after the notification is received." Food and Civil Supplies Minister U T Khader, who still has a red beacon on his official vehicle, said he does not have powers to order its removal. "I am not the owner of the vehicle. It is given by the government. Hence, the government will take a decision on removing the beacon." Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy and Water Resources Minister M B Patil had, however, welcomed the Centre's decision. Some of the ministers, including Reddy and Agriculture ...

An emotional tribute 25.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The Holocaust has gone down as one of the most horrendous events in history, reiterating the phrase 'Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.' In an effort to enlighten people about the massive torture by Nazi Germany and the show of humanity by a few citizens, the Consulate General of Israel and the Consulate General of Japan in Bengaluru joined hands to organise a 'Holocaust Memorial Event' at Alliance Francaise recently. The highlight of the event was the screening of 'Sugihara Chiune' (Persona Non Grata), a film on Japanese diplomat Chiune Sugihara revered for defying his own government and rescuing thousands of refugees fleeing Nazi Germany during World War II by issuing scores of life-saving transit visas through Japan. Yael Hashavit, Consul General of Israel in Bengaluru, said, "The holocaust was a horrific event in the history of mankind. Our duty is to commemorate and remember those who died and those who survived the atrocity. There are quite a few genocides in history ...
