Invisible public toilets 16.12.2017 deccanherald.com
A wannabe world city that wears its tech tag with enormous pride has barely 475 public toilet complexes to serve a population exceeding 1.1 crore! If men struggle in this inglorious mess, imagine the plight of Bengalurus women in their teeming millions. To spot a public toilet complex even in the citys relatively better equipped Central Business District (CBD) is a tough task. In their frantic search for a safe, clean, well-maintained public toilet, women often fail. Is this how a city with smart city ambitions rides its Swachh Bharat dream? Big gaps in last-mile connectivity between mass transport options and office / home inevitably mean long walks for women. To answer natures call, the only option would be to step into a restaurant or a private facility, which could be tough.

The restaurants were crowded. It was a ...

A man with a mission 15.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Its an engrossing tale of a small-town youth who is today one of the most popular actors in the Kannada film industry. Achyuth Kumar was born and educated in Tiptur, well-known for its coconut plantations. He quit his BCom degree course after two years and chose to train in theatre at Ninasam in Heggodu. His father Keshavamurthy was a Sanskrit teacher at the Tiptur Boys High School. He tried to dissuade his son from a full-time career in theatre, and instead suggested he pursue it part-time with a salaried job after completing his degree. There were many discussions between the father and son on this. But Keshavamurthy was a man with a literary bent of mind and had himself performed in a few plays. He could see that Achyuths mind was made up. "So, he used to introduce me to his friends as my son, the dramatist! Half the people there did not know what dramatist meant and were quite impressed," he chuckles fondly. Like his acting style, he underplayed the uncertainties he had faced in his creative ...
