Neelakurinji blooms in Sandur 25.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
While the people and ecosystem of Ballari are slowly recovering from the nightmarish unethical mining, the blue flowers that have carpeted the hills has come as a sign of hope. After a span of 12 years, the neelakurinji (Strobilanthes kunthianus) is blooming in the upper ridges of Sandur hills. It is a small herb that blooms in some parts of Western Ghats like the Nilgiris and Baba Budan Giri hills. When neelakurinji blooms in great numbers, it covers the entire grasslands around Shola forests, with its vibrant bluish-purple hue. In olden days, the tribal people related the blooming of neelakurinji to their age. Neelakurinji is a herb that grows anywhere between one and three feet tall, and it bears flowers in different months of monsoon, depending upon the region. The plant shows the peculiar behaviour of reproduction by flowering once in its life time (once in 12 years) and later dying. The phenomenon of mass seeding is called as 'masting', which is also seen in the bamboo species. These kinds of ...

A sardonic peek into poll politics 22.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Cast: Rajkummar Rao, Anjali Patil, Raghubir Yadav, Sanjay Mishra, Hardik Meriya Director : Amit V Masurkar Newton revolves around an idealistic government clerk, Newton Kumar, deputed on election duty to a polling station located in the Naxal-infested town of strife-ridden Chhattisgarh jungles. A black comedy, the film is the second from director Amit V Masurkar, after Sulemani Keeda. Hardpressed to ensure free and fair elections, Newton, a young and earnest presiding officer, braves many odds, with apathetic security forces in attendance and fear of imminent guerrilla attacks by communist rebels looming large. Succinctly capturing the naivety and inexperience of the honest science graduate clerk, Masurkar's tongue-in-cheek, sardonic parody hits at the nub of the problem in a telling manner. Be it the senior policeman Atma Singh, local booth level officer Malko Netam, the severely ailing official Loknath or a bunch of policemen on duty to guard them, Masurkar vividly brings the milieu with stark ...

Review: Newton isn't a movie of answers, but tough questions 22.9.2017 Rediff: Top Stories (India)
While filled with startling insights and questions, and buoyed by terrific performances throughout, Newton suffers from a lack of end-to-end clarity. It is a near-great film but one that for some reason doesn't express itself fully, feels Sreehari Nair.
