GC: CRIMES AGAINST WOMEN HAVE BEEN GOING ON FOREVER IN EVERY WALK OF LIFE. WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION TO WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR COLLEAGUE IN KOCHI LAST MONTH? HOW HAS IT IMPACTED YOU? 

SANJJANAA GALRANI: What happened to her was very wrong. It’s something that should not happen to anyone. You wouldn’t dream of such an atrocity happening to you in an environment that you consider familiar and safe. It shook me up. I can no more take power naps in my taxi drives from one spot to another. I never thought that I would feel so unsafe in a cab ride from a five star hotel to the airport. Just the other day I was en route to an airport in Sri Lanka. I dozed off and woke up with a start at the realization that I was alone in the car with an unknown person at the wheel. I have never felt this way. My father has suggested that I keep a gun with me. Whether loaded or not, should I ever need to protect myself, pulling it out of my handbag would make a statement. I’m seriously considering it. We have to be smart and alert, to stay safe.

GC: WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SAY TO YOUR FELLOW LADIES THIS WOMEN’S DAY, KEEPING IN MIND ALL THAT’S GOING ON AROUND US THESE DAYS... 

SG: Let us pledge that we will here by take care of ourselves and not blame the government or law. Instead let’s be proactive and strengthen our body and mind to take on life boldly and to be happier.

GC: TALKING ABOUT BOLD, SANJJANAA GALRANI IN A DANDUPALYA MOVIE, THAT’S A BOLD MOVE! WHAT WAS YOU REACTION TO THE FIRST PART? TELL US ABOUT THE SEQUELS.

Shifting careers and finding success in whatever one chooses to foray is not a talent that comes naturally to many...

From here, he turns his attention to cinematography and despite winning the National Award for his chosen career in his debut movie itself and going on to be noted for his work in his subsequent thirteen movies, the man decides to foray into direction. Here he finds his ultimate calling and after just a miserly six movies as a director over a period of twelve years, each of his movies are still eagerly waited upon by Kollywood audiences. Yes! This might seem a sophisticated fable indeed. However, this is no fable but the career story of KV Anand who is celebrating the success of his recently released directorial Kavan!

Devil's Alleys

Choosing a Genre to Dwell on, Is Not an Easy Choice for a Filmmaker. He May Have Several Ideas in a Basic Stage. He May Then Want to Make All of Them Into Scripts, or Combine Ideas Into a Single Film. Romance Goes Down Very Well With Our Audiences, So Does Action. A Genre Which Is Still Not Embraced in This Society Is Psychological Thriller.

नये कृषि कानूनों की संवैधानिकता

केन्द्रीय सरकार ने कृषि से संबंधित तीन आर्डीनस राष्ट्रपति से जारी करवा दिये। बाद में इनकी जगह तीन नये कानून बना दिये। इन कानूनों का विरोध विश्व में सबसे बड़े आंदोलन का रुप धारण कर गया है। केन्द्रीय सरकार की ओर से इन कानूनों को बड़े कृषि सुधारों की ओर से प्रचार किया जा रहा है। सरकार का पक्ष है कि इन कानूनों के फलस्वरुप कृषि में बहुत प्रगति होगी और किसानों की आमदनी में बढ़ोतरी होगी।
