Andhra Pradesh ministers seek Centre's intervention in students' nativity row 23.7.2014 DNA: Opinion
A delegation of ministers from Andhra Pradesh on Wednesday called on Union Minister Rajnath Singh, seeking the Centre's intervention to resolve the issue raised by the neighbouring Telangana over nativity of students in common admissions to professional courses. Briefing newspersons here, Andhra Pradesh Social Welfare Minister Ravela Kishore Babu charged that the Government of Telangana was violating Article 371(d). "The Government of Telangana has adopted a cabinet resolution, saying that those, who came to Telangana State prior to 1956 will be considered as locals candidates, which is in gross violation of Article 371(d)," he said. Asked about how the Union Government can intervene into the issue between the two States, Babu said it was the responsibility of the Centre to ensure that the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014 is implemented completely. "We are requesting the Government of India to interfere in the matter through the Governor," he added.

Trailer of 'Dear White People' talks about racism with tongue-in-cheek jokes 23.7.2014 DNA: India
Dear White People is one of the most topical, important and hilarious comedies of the year, and as the trailer shows, has an an excellent series of tongue-in-cheek jokes where the lead character uses a radio show to start debate about prevalent racist culture.  The story follows four black students and their wider group of friends at a white Ivy League school. The trailer expands on what we can expect from the plot and the ensemble cast.  The cast includes Teyonah Parris as Coco, who seizes on the controversy to further her broadcast career, and Tyler James Williams as Lionel, who is recruited to write undercover on the mostly white student paper. Tessa Thompson plays Sam, who is a radical activist and uses her campus radio show to broadcast decrees that begin with the opener “Dear white people", and draws attention to the racist behaviour her white friends engage in. The movie will definitely start conversations about racism and engage people about their behaviour across the globe.  Watch the video ...

Sir Chris Hoy: How To Win Gold and 100 Seconds to Beat the World: The David Rudisha Story review two compelling victory stories 23.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
How to Win Gold? Think machines, psychiatrists, inner chimps or heated trousers but not in Kenya, where a dusty track and weights made out of old tins sufficed for one ambitious teenager There's a sad time in most of our lives when we realise we're never going to win Olympic gold. Realistically, I'm there. Equestrian maybe? Can't ride, don't like horses, except in a burger. Shooting? Too blind, too pacifist, too don't like loud noises. So I'm watching Sir Chris Hoy: How To Win Gold (BBC1) with my children in mind. The younger one, I think; the older is more academic, or as academic as a two-year-old can be. The good news is that anyone can do it, says, Sir Chris. No one is born a champion, champions are made through endless hard work and determination. As a parent I need to be not pushy but totally supportive. You got it, son. Will I drive through the night though, the length of the country, with the kid fast asleep in the back, to deliver him to meets, as Chris's dad did? Will I hell. I mean, sure. Or ...
