admirer of your skilful political analysis Your latest piece titled The Congresss Modi reconfirms your analytic skills and journalistic brilliance Having served in the Indian Police Service for over 25 yearsI have had several occasions to closely observe the working of many political mindsincluding that of Narendra Modi The subscript of most of your recent editorial articles and commentaries are suggestive of your belief that [the Narendra Modi of 2013 has come a long way from the Narendra Modi of 2002or his early days as an apparatchik of the RSS The fact is that the core political beliefs and ideologies of Narendra Modi have not changed one bit over all these years He continues to be the evil hate-monger that he was trained and indoctrinated to be For him and his ilkthe politics of hatred is just a means to attain and perpetuate power He has only become increasingly smartercleverer and [more diabolical than ever before Some of us have the naveté to truly hope and believe that evil can and will relent over time This misplaced hope and belief inspires the dark hearts to dream even darker dreams History has shown us time and again that evil rarely relents… evil only changes form and masquerades as a more seductive idea Evil must be defeated And even when defeateduprooted and purified by fireevil leaves behind a seed that will one day germinate andin bloomingagain be

Deepika Padukone is enjoying her Hollywood success and is busy with her upcoming film Padmavati which has been embroiled in controversies from the word go The actor is tightlipped about Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next project whose sets were vandalised in Kolhapur recently At an event in Delhi Deepika spoke about what’s happening in her life these days which is all work with a bit of fun too While talking about projects she is eyeing out west a question that has constantly came her way after the success of her debut xXx Return of Xander Cage the 31-year-old actor said “No nothing happening in Hollywood as yet Would let you know for sure but yes a lot of films coming on way and I’m happy” Replacing Hrithik Roshan and Sonam Kapoor Deepika has become the brand ambassador of Oppo camera phones Speaking to indianExpresscom she spoke about the moment she wished she had captured “I think it will be when I got my very first award After I started modelling I won model of the year within the year At that time there were no camera phones I used to live in Bangalore and I had flown to Mumbai with my father since I was just 18-year-old The event was at Grand Hyatt and I was so excited We were living in a room where I had a cupboard with dresses lined up for the evening So when I walked into the event to receive my award I could see my father was equally excited to see that one big moment of my life But I wish we had such technology back then to capture that moment It’s in my mind but I wish I had something else too” Having said that Deepika is not really tech-savvy and relies on her PR “What I’ve noticed these days is the moment a camera comes on front our body language changes For me pictures are memories Whether it’s my childhood picture or some picture that I accidentally come across it flashes many memories However I wish to go back to a time when people used to click picture and get them printed These days we do take pictures but it’s always on our device We don’t have habit of getting them printed and make an album out of it” And would she like to share the moments of her life with the world via her app like many of her contemporaries “It’s never something that has crossed my mind” Check out Deepika Padukone’s pictures: Picture credit: APH Images Picture credit: APH Images Picture credit: APH Images Picture credit: APH Images Picture credit: APH Images Picture

interesting thought and I feel smart phones have enabled us to tell our stories in a better way Whether it’s making a film on my own or feature in a film where thedirector wants to try something creative I’m completely game for that In my entire career I have made decisions or chosen a film completely just for acreative experience Finding Fanny is one of those films It wasn’t a quintessential film People thought that why was I taking up something like that but it gives me a different sort of satisfaction and the fact that I enabled a director’s vision to make a film that he feels very passionate about So if a director wants to use no lights and want me to be as natural as possible or shoot underwater with phone I am more than happy to do that” For all the latest Entertainment News

With Lata chronicles the legendary playback singer’s career on the international stage Related News Lata Mangeshkar does a wicked impression of Kishore Kumar over the phone “He was such an unpredictable man When we would perform at shows in USA or Canada we would decide upon a set list But there was always a song or two that we didn’t like but would have to sing” says the 87-year-old playback singer So what would Kumar do then Mangeshkar chortles loudly before she continues: “He would address the audience and say ‘Deviyon aur sajjano bhaiyon aur beheno maatayon aur pitayon (ladies and gentlemen brothers and sisters mothers and fathers) the next song is one that you will like very much but Lataji and I don’t What is to be done Nothing so we will sing it for you But I just thought you should know that we really don’t like this one’” The song in question was Shayad meri shaadi from the smash hit Souten (1983) starring Rajesh Khanna Tina Munim and Mangeshkar’s niece Padmini Kolhapure Its lyrics were so coquettish that in spite of their best efforts the song made both Mangeshkar and Kumar sound rather dense “Another was Bindiya chamkegi from Do Raaste (1969) I told Laxmiji (of Laxmikant-Pyarelal) that I really don’t like this song But it was such a hit everywhere that I had to perform it often” says Mangeshkar None of that mattered to the thousands of NRIs in the audience many of whom had braved the snow and sleet to watch their favourite singers live “The biggest reward about performing abroad was that for four hours we could bring the NRI public closer to the country they had left behind” says Mangeshkar who sung an average of 22 songs at every show not counting encores A new book On Stage With Lata (Harper Collins) chronicles the legendary playback singer’s career on the international stage Written by Mohan Deora the co-promoter and co-organiser of Mangeshkar’s international tours from 1975-1998 and her niece Rachana Shah it offers readers a glimpse into the notoriously private singer’s life on the road as she toured the US Canada UK Trinidad and Tobago Guyana Suriname and Fiji These shows were a far cry from her very first public performance “In 1938 when I was nine years old I asked my father Deenanath Mangeshkar if I could sing raga Khambavati during one of his classical concerts” says Mangeshkar In the introduction of the book she writes about how she dressed in a white frock and styled her hair to fall across one side of her face and had her photograph clicked for a listing in the newspaper The show began with her performance and as her father sang late into the evening young Lata put her head on his lap and fell asleep “My first show went well” says Mangeshkar with a chuckle Her father once read her horoscope and told her mother that their daughter would become a famous singer and would remain unmarried all her life His prediction came true and even as Mangeshkar’s voice soared across the airwaves all around the world it would take 28 years after her first Hindi film song — Paa lagoon kar jori for Vasant Joglekar’s Aap ki seva mein (1946) — for her to embark on her first inter-national performance “It was in 1974 at the Royal Albert Hall in London VK Krishna Menon and my friend SN Gourisaria organised it Dilip Kumar had just introduced me to the audience But when I stepped on the stage I couldn’t say a word I must say that I wasn’t afraid but it was the kind of feeling you get when you are determined to do a good job” says Mangeshkar She had been a little nervous about how her performance would be received but she needn’t have worried In the audio recording of the concert there is a thunderous applause after she sings the first note of the shloka she performed at the beginning of every show “Things were so disciplined in the West But it’s not like strange events didn’t happen Kishoreda once had a man who staggered on the stage completely drunk while he was singing Koi humdum na raha and put his head on Kishoreda’s shoulder and sobbed uncontrollably A man once threw money at my feet and I scolded him after I finished my song” says Mangeshkar The prospect of performing in America was a little daunting to her till her dearest friend Mukesh stepped in and agreed to go on tour with her “I had only one request After my debut at the Royal Albert Hall I didn’t want to perform in a community hall in some town somewhere which is what usually happened to Indian playback singers It makes a huge difference to a show and I didn’t want to settle for less” says Mangeshkar Deora did not disappoint her and from the mid-1970s till the late 1980s Mangeshkar performed at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles the Oakland Auditorium Area in San Francisco Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto and Madison Square Garden (MSG) in New York City In the 1960s-’70s the Western press’s awareness of Indian music was limited to Ravi Shankar writes Deora But by performing at these big ticketed arena-styled venues Mangeshkar’s concerts put Indian film music on the North American map in a way no one had done before Interviews and profiles followed and the Indian press took note of these tours And soon even Mangeshkar found out that it is best to let what happens in Vegas stay in Vegas “Whenever Mukesh bhaiya and I could take a break between shows we’d travel to Las Vegas I liked to go to the casinos and try my luck at the slot machines I didn’t know how to play anything else It was so much fun and I could spend hours there” says Mangeshkar Little would she know that after being photographed outside a casino in a blue salwar kameez the Indian press would splash the picture all over the news but with a few changes “They mistook my blue salwar for jeans They said that Lata is wearing jeans and is spending all her time at the casinos Unke liye main gambler ban gayi (They called me a gambler)” says Mangeshkar still very amused by the memory But one August evening in Detroit in 1976 Mukesh would suffer a fatal heart attack and Mangeshkar would lose a friend she’d loved and known for 25 years “He was my brother the one who took me to all these countries He was a lively man even though there would be occasions when he’d come late to the show and we’d panic till he got there I liked performing with him the mood on stage would always be soulful” says Mangeshkar It would take an entire year before she would return to the international stage and soon Mangeshkar toured with Kumar and Manna Dey “With Kishoreda it was fun and games He loved making people laugh With Mannada our songs were on the softer side with a more classical approach” she says Initially Mangeshkar was strict that the concerts would be music shows only a renowned actor or performer would only serve as a sort of emcee who would introduce her on stage But as the years went by she invited popular stars such as Amitabh Bachchan Rekha and Sunil Dutt to join her on tour “At the MSG show in NYC Amitji sang Mere angne mein tumhara kya kaam hai a folk song from Uttar Pradesh” says Mangeshkar A few years later Bachchan would record it for Laawaris (1981) and having experienced the success of the international shows would soon set off on his own tours around the world “He told me that appearing on my shows inspired him I haven’t attended his shows but I hear they were wonderful” says Mangeshkar Also read: Lata Mangeshkar wins The BrandLaureate award But it is her message for fans which is melting our hearts At the twilight of her life and career Mangeshkar admits that the thrill is gone “I miss all these wonderful singers and composers I worked with who were my friends I rarely sing for films now I don’t go into a recording studio thinking some kamaal (something amazing) will happen These days I sing spiritual songs like bhajans or the Hanuman Chalisa I sing them in Marathi as well I am not disappointed with what life has brought my way I am rather
