endangered by the Taliban than by Baloch separatists (Note the absorptive nature of the first and recessive nature of the second) India is not endangered by the Naxalist-Maoist insurgency in many of its states because the ideology of the state of India is not the same as that of the rebels Although Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has expressed his concern over the spread of this rebellionthere are

2007 and violence there had actually increased after a ceasefire agreed by the Indian army in 1997 If Pakistan had been watchingit would have learned that ceasefires with terrorists only give them time to regroup and form bigger armies Alsothere are some other lessons that Pakistan and Afghanistan should have learned from Indias experience with terrorism since the 1950s One big lesson is not to glamourise the misfortunes of tribal communities gone wrong for the lack of normal evolution Pakistanis are guilty of fabricating the myth that the Pakhtun never give up fighting and have never been conquered They often mouth this obscenity standing in front of camps where countless Pakhtun women and children suffer historys worst brutalisation India has deployed its army against the warriors of the Northeast without parlaying with them from either a position of weakness or ideological vulnerability But as noted aboveIndia is lucky it is not an ideological state and its masses are not given

Vikram Chatterjee after he surrendered in connection with an accident involving his car which led to the death of model and actor Sonika Chauhan Vikram arrived at the court around 1030 am With the state counsel not opposing the bail plea Chief Judicial Magistrate Sougata Roy granted him bail on a personal bond of Rs 1000 The court directed the actor to appear before it on the next date of hearing on September 1 Later in his first interaction with the media after the accident Vikram said: “The matter is sub-judice and hence I will not divulge much details But I was neither drunk nor the car being driven at a high speed What really happened that night is something I will share only with the police People are saying that the car was being driven at 120 km/hr and that I was intoxicated None of these are true” Vikram who was released from the hospital on Thursday added: “I wish I was in Sonika’s place today I would have been in peace After all I was behind the wheel that night and hence it was my responsibility I am in pain… I have lost (a close friend) People are saying all sorts of things People have alleged that I purposely got re-admitted to the hospital after being discharged initially But actually I was not in a state of mind to understand my health condition” He claimed while he wanted to speak to the media earlier his doctors had advised him not to “They felt I was in severe stress and trauma…” he said Vikram who had sustained injuries in the accident had been booked under a suo motu FIR lodged by the Kolkata Police This was followed by a complaint lodged by Sonika’s family Both cases have been tagged together as different sections relating to causing death due to negligence rash driving and causing grievous hurt by endangering personal safety of others have been slapped against Vikram With the police on Thursday summoning him for questioning the actor said he will record his statement at the Tollygunge police station next week “Sonika was an integral part of my life a special person I don’t know how I will face her parents but I will surely like to do that… I wish I could have let Sonika’s parents know about her death sooner But I could only remember two numbers — my dad’s and a friend’s Nothing will bring Sonika back I don’t have words to express my pain I want to be by her family’s side today” Vikram said “I have two roads ahead of me — one leads to me sitting at home and another that leads to getting back to work so that 100 other families who work on a TV set don’t suffer because of me I don’t know how soon I will return to work but I want to do it at the earliest” he added In the early hours of April 29 the car with Vikram at the wheel and Sonika seated on the front seat swerved and crashed into the pavement while allegedly over-speeding along south Kolkata’s Rash Behari Avenue Meanwhile Satarupa Pyne a model and friend of Sonika on Friday demanded a thorough investigation into the accident “I don’t know Vikram personally and do not have a personal grudge against him But I don’t understand where are the CCTV footages There should be a special investigation… I am not saying that he conspired and murdered her But if someone is killed because of someone else’s negligence he is definitely guilty” she said “Vikram is saying he was neither intoxicated nor speeding… what is the proof Sonika was a very good friend She was a very responsible person” she added For all the latest Kolkata News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Dipti Sharma | New Delhi | Updated: February 19 2017 9:50 am I was about to give up acting and that’s when Anurag Basu called me for a role in Barfi Both Barfi and Jolly LLB brought back my interest in acting Top News Actor-director Saurabh Shukla talks about his character in Jolly LLB 2 co-star Akshay Kumar and life as an actor in an interview with indianexpresscom Below are few excerpts from the interview: One of the reasons behind the success of Jolly LLB was your act as a judge Was the entire part written in the script or you had to improvise some of it The part was written very well and all crucial points were there Both Subhash and me worked on bringing a life in the character We didn’t want to stereotype the character We added a lot of things to the character like his irritation day-to-day life eating habits and how does he burp These things were written in the script but got enhanced when Subhash started working as a director What was your method as an actor in doing this character Every actor has a different method or process for preparing a role I do not write notes or prepare the background in advance It starts on the sets When I approached Judge Sundar Lal Tripathi — I had few questions and points — what’s the salary of a judge in a lower court in India he will not have a swanky car but a modest one (as he is honest) he drives on the same roads with potholes and he also has to solve 10 different cases Judge Tripathi loves a hot cup of tea Because when there is a lot of clutter he wants to start a day in a good way So I will have a cup of tea and then will go through the day But my assistant is very clever in the film So he prepares the tea in advance and keeps it in a thermos Another imagination was that the flask of the thermos is broken So by the time Judge Tripathi has tea it is cold So that’s how we brought life to the character How your role in the Jolly LLB 2 is different from that of previous one It’s a question an actor can’t really answer Only a writer-director can tell you that But I had the same kind of freshness while doing Jolly LLB 2 as in the first part As an actor I didn’t have to repeat anything But he is still the same guy He is still Sundar Lal Tripathi So there is a resemblance with the first film But there are new insights that Subhash has brought as a writer here Do you like doing comedy roles I never really do the ‘comedy’ ‘Comedy’ is always used in terms of slapstick Everybody has got a sense of humour You actually get attracted to a man at a party who has a good sense of humour You are put off by a man if he doesn’t have humour Every character I do or I write I keep humour in mind as that is an integral part of life Even if a very serious role is offered to me I try to make it lighter at points and at the right time they become serious Recently Bombay Hight Court ordered to cut a few scenes from Jolly LLB 2 as they ostensibly mock the legal profession I have really no idea about this It’s not honourable for citizens to go against the law I am sure producers and filmmakers are taking care of it I am not aware of the proceedings and the case Of course I have heard about it but have not invested my time in knowing about it When I hear half the facts it’s like the Chinese whisper So it’s best left to the producers lawyers and court CBFC has already passed the film However Bombay Hight Court is still screening the film Your comments This is not in context to this film only This is a much bigger question I think legally there is a body which passes the films or demands the cuts and it is called censor board But there is another body which has more power than CBFC and it’s the court of law On legal points one can’t say that a film passed by CBFC can’t be taken to the court One can take anything to the court Apart from these two institutions nobody should have the right to stop a film What has been in happening in the country is that some group of people create hoopla about the film These sort of people have no legal rights I would always say that when there are legal bodies (there are two) we should follow them Bombay High Court has the legal rights to look into this matter You worked with Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani in Jolly LLB Do you think the addition of a star to a sequel lessens the charm of the film in the process Both Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani are stars Which star are you talking about They are both great actors I said this when I won National Award that ‘this award is to my two actors Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani because you are as good as your co-actors Akshay Kumar is a bigger star than Arshad Warsi Do you agree In terms of this film he is a fabulous co-actor A lot of credit for my performance in Jolly LLB 2 goes to Akshay as he was my co-actor as well as Annu Kapoor If you like my performance in the film it is due to these two actors Akshay is a bigger star in terms of trade value That’s completely a different area But apart from being a star he is a wonderful actor That is his prime job Akshay Kumar has time and again proved himself as an actor He hasn’t only done so-called commercial films but he has also done Special 26 Baby and Rustom Why suddenly are we talking about him being an actor He was one of the best actors in Khaki Akshay got interested in Jolly LLB 2 He is wonderful in the film There’s no scoop in it on why Arshad Warsi is not in Jolly LLB 2 Akshay has brought a different shade to the character with much ease I at least had similar kind of fun working with Akshay in Jolly LLB 2 if not more (as compared to Arshad) Akshay is very very good as Jolly Also

was a long gap between your role in Satya and Barfi What were you doing in-between these two films I acted in films Some were good films some were not Somehow I wasn’t too satisfied with I what I was being offered I thought of taking a break from acting I started writing I have a different theory about life When my parents asked me to complete my education and do a job I didn’t do it because I felt I will not have fun doing that I came to fulfil my dreams and have fun If am not feeling happy doing my job then what’s the point of doing it Money is a by-product It helps complete your dreams I

Association President Gurmeet Kular is still in China and will return after April 7,rejected such suggestions. Gambhir explained the motivation behind this step."On Wednesday morning I picked up the newspapers and saw gut-wrenching pictures of the daughters of two CRPF men killed in the latest attacks One was saluting her martyred father while in the other picture the howling young woman was being consoled by her relative" The images so haunted him that the battle-hardened veteran professional found it tough to concentrate on his game As he expressed in a subsequent blog post in Kolkata Knight Rider’s official website the brutal butchering of 25 jawans and the heart-wrenching pictures put in perspective the triviality of the issues that consume us and the enormity of the tragedy that befell the jawans’ families In his own words "We were to play against Rising Pune Supergiant in the evening (Wednesday) As the day went on and I was going from selection meeting to batsmen’s meeting to bowlers’ meeting the pictures kept growing on me I thought to myself how does it matter to the families of those 25 CRPF men whether KKR won or lost… I kept thinking and decided a few things First my team KKR would play with black arm bands to express solidarity with mourning families Second Gautam Gambhir Foundation will take care of the entire education expenses of the children of these martyrs My team has already started work on this and I shall soon share progress we have made" The decision perhaps put him a little at ease but as he relates in the post the struggle never left him To the extent that the KKR captain normally a hard taskmaster who leads by example let go of lapses from teammates without a rebuke "Some incidents shake me so hard that I lose context of playing cricket" he writes in the post Gambhir who has also pledged to donate the prize money that he may receive in 10th edition of IPL to the families of Sukma jawans added that his love for the armed forces stems from his respect for values such as teamwork and selflessness Although he was careful to add that "the quantum of losing a dear one while serving the country can never ever be compared to losing a cricket match" What we see here is simple manifestation of humanity displayed by a very successful yet sensitive professional His actions arise from a deep conviction about the values that he holds dear and the code that he lives by It is the belief in these codes and values that bind us that has prompted some of our most acclaimed and accomplished athletes (cricketers wrestlers) to take to Twitter to express their anguish and anger at the difficulties faced by our jawans the tragedies that befall them and the narrative that alternates between lionising or berating them This is Unacceptable Cant do this to our CRPF jawaans This rot has to stop Badtameezi ki hadd hai

India’s integrity and call for its breaking into pieces but it is fascism to stand by our jawans It is ‘patriotic’ to look for "root causes" behind terrorism and ‘unpatriotic’ to call for the crushing of those forces who use violence and bloodshed to achieve their ends In the clamour for holding individual liberty as a sacred moral principle above all else we have forgotten that patriotism cannot survive in a vacuum It needs signifiers which may ultimately help to bind and unite a nation Absent these a nation loses its moorings Humanity’s crisis that Shah Rukh Khan referred to in his speech is
