Mandela Telugu Movie

We just completed our elections in Tamilnadu on Tuesday together with Kerala and Pondicherry. The elections was held over one day and was largely peaceful as can be expected in our state. However, results will only be out on May 5th as they do not want these results to affect the elections in the other states. So, we will get all kind of conspiracy theories till then. West Bengal for example has their elections spread over 8 phases and 8 different days and is still in the progress.  The Feral Nomad ‘If you are in doubt, just be still, and rest will be taken cared of’. No, this is not a popular saying with a deep meaning. This is what I say to my European friends before we cross a road here in Sri Lanka. After a few instances of …

The Human Computer – Shakuntala Devi: maths genius. complicated mother and LGBT champion

Shakuntala Devi 2020 film

The human supercomputer not only pushed for the minds of humanity to breach their capacity, but for irrational beliefs and LGBT prejudices to be challenged as well. The words “Shakuntala Devi”, “maths” and “rapid calculation” are synonomous. Be inspired and watch ‘Shakuntala Devi’ (2020) on Amazon Prime. It will inspire you and you’ll put your daughters and sons in front of the screen to watch it. But beware, there was a price to pay for passion and maths genius that you will see in the film. Math genius Shakuntala Devi is a household name today since Vidya Balan decided to step into her rather large shoes. But there’s a less-talked-about side to her that needs more attention. The year was 1977 when in one corner of the world, at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Shakuntala Devi successfully extracted the 23rd …

The hard road to success for YouTube star Maithili Thakur

maithili thakur

Maithili Thakur was born in the small state of Bihar in extreme northern India. In fact, the language in her region is called Mathili, which also happens to be a name for Sri Sita. Maithili, along with her two brothers, Rishav and Ayachi were trained by their father in Indian classic music, harmonium and table. The brothers provide backing instruments in nearly all of Mathili’s videos. Years of struggle “I was born in 2000, in the Madhubani district of Bihar, India. I grew up in a village in a remote area – there was no electricity and most people were farmers, herding cows. I didn’t go to school as there was no school in the area. My father lived away much of the time, in Delhi, establishing himself as a music teacher. He taught his students in their homes.” Thanks …

WATCH: The Tamil protest song ‘Enjoy Enjaami’ that’s lighting the world up with 100m views

'ENJOY ENJAAMI' BY DHEE FT. ARIVU

‘Enjoy Enjaami’ tells the story of exploited tea plantation labour and was an immediate hit, with cross-cultural appeal in India and the diaspora. The hit, written by Arivu with the stunning Tamil vocals of Dhee, is as much a serious protest piece as it is about killer dance beats. The song is clear about the link of the people with the land, and how they built so much infrastructure in India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Mauritius (and South Africa) and then we’re sent back to the cities without benefitting from any of the land they worked on. The video and music have their fair share of African influences, but the rap is not out of place. Rap was always the musical voice of the oppressed, poor and disenfranchised. “If rap is about story-telling, my grandmother is the world’s best story-teller,” says …

US Navy sailors sing ‘Ye Jo Des Hai’ from SRK-film ‘Swades’

swades srk

The unusual scene happened at an official dinner held by The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO). That’s the senior military officer of the Department of the Navy and it would have been just a quaint singalong if not attended by a certain gentleman, Taranjit Singh Sandhu. He so happens to hold the post of India’s Ambassador to the United States of America, and so captured this moment where the US Navy sings. ‘Ye Jo Des Hai’ is a hit song from the 2004 film starring Shahrukh Khan – SRK – “Swades’. ‘ये वो बंधन है जो कभी टूट नहीं सकता! This is a friendship bond that cannot be broken ever.’ 🇮🇳🇺🇸 US Navy singing a popular Hindi tune @USNavyCNO ‘s dinner last night! pic.twitter.com/hfzXsg0cAr — Taranjit Singh Sandhu (@SandhuTaranjitS) March 27, 2021 And, after this tweet, of course SRK had …
