'Scrolling Through Activism: An American’s Thoughts on Social Media, Politics, and Entitlement' by Claire Winslow

'I recognize in myself a desire to stand on my tiniest of soap boxes and shout about all the things that I think and feel and believe. I want to let my righteous anger out into the echo chamber, hoping that it might reach the small handful of my Facebook friends with whom I do not share a political party. I hope to get 95% likes and encouraging comments, and 5% opposition from some forgotten high school acquaintance who I can shut down with a witty comment and then unfriend immediately. I feel myself craving that sort of validation. It’s easy. It makes me feel powerful and correct, and like I am doing something about the problems that I see in the world.'

'Requiem for the Deferred Desire: A Comparative Reading of the Works of A. Ramachandran and Gabriel García Márquez' by Johny ML

'If such comparison between two patriarchs from two different geographical locations, using different mediums of expression is possible (I simply would like to overlook the fact that Marquez is dead and gone) obviously it calls for the reference of Magical Realism that Marquez’s works are generally connected to. Ramachandran is a naturalist and less a realist though his naturalism is really magical. Marquez defies ordinary people through exemplary acts and exceptional narrative styles...'

Mani Ratnam & AR Rahman – A 25 Year Legacy!

Upamanyu Bhattacharyya celebrates in posters the evolving partnership of music and the art of storytelling between the two legends—Mani Ratnam and A. R. Rahman—across a quarter of a century.

Known today for their memorable cinematic sequences and songs, films born out of this collaboration are neatly shrunk into these posters. Moments are mounted and their essence encapsulated, but not without a sense of ever-expanding space and flexibility that posterity seeks.

While hand-painted banners and digital-hoardings crowd our streets and spam our social media, these posters not only offer us the first glimpses of a story, but make us retrace our own journey; relive our bitter heartbreaks with a dose of ‘Dil Se’, or rekindle our youthful idealism with ‘Aaytha Ezhuthu’.

REPOST:

Looking Back and Beyond ‘India’s Daughter’: An Exclusive Interview With Leslee Udwin (http://tinpahar.com/?p=2361)

Last year, on the 8th of March—International Women's Day—India’s Daughter, directed by Leslee Udwin about the 2012 Delhi gang-rape and murder case, was slated for release in both India and Britain simultaneously. While meant to honour both Jyoti Singh as well as the overwhelming public response to this atrocity, the film was banned in India before its release and condemned by several Indian politicians and public figures, including notable women’s right activists.
One year later, we mark International Women’s Day with an interview with the film-maker of India’s Daughter where she revisits the main controversies stirred up by the heated public debate surrounding the film.

Art historian R. Siva Kumar writes on - " Bauhaus and Santiniketan: Two Models of Art and Design Education, Impact and Implications"

Though there were several common elements that went into the shaping of these two models, the hierarchical relationship between them were different at the Bauhaus and at Santiniketan. This led to the Bauhaus, despite having several important artists on its faculty, being primarily recognized as a school of design, and Santiniketan as a centre for art. If the Bauhaus produced a new kind of designer who had the refined aesthetic sensibilities of an artist and the technical knowhow of an engineer, Santiniketan produced a new kind of artist, who was interested in visual communication and not merely in self-expression, and was willing to exercise his sensibilities at different levels. But what are the implications of the histories of these two institutions for art and design education today?

There can be no doubts about the fact that Jasim Khan’s upcoming book Being Salman is going to make it large this December. The biography is all set to be launched on the Bollywood superstar’s 50th birthday; it promises to shed light on some of the murky sides of Mr. Khan’s personal life, including the series of legal controversies that he has been involved in over his illustrious (and many would argue decadent) decades in B-Town. The publisher (Penguin, India) is leaving no stone unturned in order to ensure an enormous publicity. Launching a ‘Guess the Cover’ competition seems to be one of those clever strategies to get both fans and critics involved and excited about the book.

Siddhi Surte reviews "On Air With AIB" 
 
"A political satire marked with cleverly researched facts and just a little too risqué humor. Sound familiar? While AIB’s new venture draws various parallels with John Oliver’s long-standing “Last Week Tonight”, it does hold a few cards to its advantage in becoming the ‘Next Big Thing’ in Indian comedy. Now a number of you may argue, stating that they already have earned that title, that they are the kings of comedy, that I know nothing, am Jon Snow and additionally, even probably gay. But hear me out on reasons as to why they are yet on the steps to that magnificent throne"

HDFC র বিজ্ঞাপন , বিজ্ঞাপনের গল্পটা প্রত্যেকের ভীষণ পরিচিত। যেখানে একজন ৮ /১০ বছর র ছোট মেয়ে একজন বদমেজাজি বয়স্ক লোককে বার বার "হ্যালো আঙ্কেল " বলে এবং তার কাছে প্রতুত্তর আশা করে। আঙ্কেল বলে ডাকলেও বয়েসের ব্যবধান এই দুইজন দাদু , নাতনি। বিজ্ঞাপনে এই ছোট মেয়েটি এবং তার বন্ধুদের উপর বিরক্ত এই বয়স্ক একা ভদ্রলোকটি। ছোট মেয়েটি অবশ্য অন্যান বাচ্চাদের মত এই বয়স্ক ভদ্রলোকে দেখলে পালিয়ে যায়না ,বরং বার বার "হ্যালো আঙ্কেল" বলছে।

Nestle 100 years commercial- Ad review
By Parashar Baidya

নেসলের নতুন বিজ্ঞাপনটির উপস্থাপনা যথেষ্ঠ মনোরম ,কিন্তু বিষয় বস্তুতে নতুনত্বের ছোয়া সেই ভাবে নেই বললেই চলে। সাদা কালো দিন গুলি দিয়ে শুরু করে রঙিন আজকের দিনে এসে শেষ হয়েছে এই বিজ্ঞাপনটি। " নেসলে ভারতীয়" এই বক্তব্যকে প্রতিষ্ঠা করতে সেই চেনা পদ্ধতিকেই বেছে নিয়েছেন বিজ্ঞাপনটির নির্মাতারা।
