people are now giving
their identity that we
are also Hindus,” said

Jaipur: Former chief minister
Vasundhara Raje condemned
police action on agitating
private doctors. She said that
instead of resorting to lathi
charge, the state government
should have sensibly talked to
the doctors and after knowing
their views on the bill, efforts
should have been made to
resolve the issues. Raje also
said that, earlier, the police
lathicharged CHA candidates.
After two days, doctors left the Statue Circle protest site.
After advice from the police, the doctors courted arrest.
However, the medical leaders of the protest, in a conversation

said that Rajasthan is
the model state where
the Right to Health Act is
implemented and Ashok
Gehlot is the first Chief
Minister who had done
it. While speaking to First
India, Prasadi Lal Meena
said, “The Right To Health
Bill was passed in the
state assembly with the
majority and it will create
a history now. People will
be able to get treatment
in any hospital and no
hospital can deny treat-
ment to any patient. A few
things where consensus
was not built have not
been included in the Act,
but they will be included
in the rules. The hospitals
who have got land on
concessional rates or for
free will have to adhere
with norms else they
will face strict action,”.
“If anyone demands to
include a 25-bed hospital
under the act, we can
incorporate that too. So,
we have changed the rules
without changing the act.
The views of the opposi-
tion have been heard and
the MLAs also congratu-
lated. The CM has kept the
view of the common man
in mind in this act,” added
the minister.

FOR INDIAN CINEMA…FILM ABHI BAKI HAI
he party has just begun.
The night is still young.
Indian Cinema was BIG
and at the global podium…
be it Venice, Berlin or
Cannes… Indian Cinema
was always credited for its
make. However, with the
success at the Oscar 2023,
fully home-grown Indian
Cinema has finally tri-
umphedagainstall“odds”!
Since the Fifties, Indian
Cinema has created a rip-
ple in the celluloid world.
Today, we take a look at
the baby steps that Indian
cinema in general took
post-Independence, un-
knowingly that collective-
ly India would create a
niche (albeit small) in the
arena of world cinema.
We have several times
asked ourselves why was
the great dream merchant
icon Raj Kapoor so popu-
lar in Russia? The answer
is perhaps the optimism
of the charismatic actor
that inspired Russians to
brave through their trou-
bled times.
In the early fifties, just
after the devastating war
with Germany, the coun-
try was still in ruins and
people were poor and
their lives were full of pri-
vations and shortages.
But when they saw great-
er hardships being faced
by the poor from India and
too with a smile, it boosted
their sagging optimism.
So, after watching Awara
and Shri 420, Raj Kapoor
became a symbol of hope
and optimism for the peo-
ple of Soviet Union.
Also, the common man
shares perhaps the same
spiritual values as per-
haps all Indian movies
gives the message of ‘vic-
tory of good over evil’.
This is perhaps the yearn-
ing of every downtrodden
soul in the world and it is
so eternally bonded.
Believe it or not, in the
late Eighties this anecdote
reveals exactly how big B
Subhash’s Disco Dancer
was in Russia. When the
then USSR leader Mikhail
Gorbachev visited New
Delhi, Prime Minister Ra-
jiv Gandhi introduced
Amitabh Bachchan as the
‘biggest superstar from
India’, but Gorbachev ap-
parently said, “But my
daughter only knows
Mithun Chakraborty
.”
After Disco Dancer’s re-
lease in Soviet Union thea-
tres in 1984, Disco Dancer
grossed a whopping $76
millioninthatcountry
.For
the record, that is $100 mil-
lion more than what Pad-
maavatgrossedworldwide.
MithunChakraborty-star-
rer Disco Dancer was the
highest grossing foreign
film in the Soviet Union!
BUT THESE WERE IN
BITS AND PIECES…
Pather Panchali was re-
leased in Basusree, a Cal-
cutta cinema on August
26, 1955 and received a
poor initial response. The
screenings started filling
up within a week or two,
buoyed by word of mouth.
It opened again at another
cinema, where it ran for
seven weeks. A delay in
subtitling led to postpone-
ment of the UK release till
Dec 1957. It went on to
achieve great success in
the US in 1958, running
for eight months at Fifth
Avenue Playhouse in New
York.WB govt which pro-
duced the film earned a
profit of $50,000 from its
initial US release, and dec-
ades later the film grossed
$402,723 from its 2015 lim-
ited release.
Lagan, on its part, made
it to a close call at cine-
ma’s biggest stage in the
world, but missed chance
to make the cut. Even as
the maestro Ray received
the Lifetime Achievement
from Oscar, home-gown
Indian cinema (as I
termed it earlier in this
column) had to wait in
general for some more
time before Naatu Naatu
 “Trunk Call” of The El-
ephant Whisperers made
it big at Academy Awards.
This year’s unprece-
dented night at the Acade-
my Awards is a manifesta-
tion of years of cerebral
and emotive filmmaking
without the expectation of
any recognition from the
West. In recent times,
thanks to technology and
money power, India has
taken major strides in
globally communicating
through its popular medi-
um of cinema and Films
likeKantara(Telugu),RRR
(Telugu), Pariyerum Peru-
mal (Tamil), Sairat (Mar-
athi)Mandela(Tamil),and
Asuran (Tamil)  The El-
ephant Whisperers have
been enough proof of this
trend which has finally ar-
rived. It is not that Indian
cinema has not received
recognition in the past
from the Academy
. But the
recent bumper successes
signify the Indian time-
tested interests in equality
,
fraternity, human liberty
and justice. These films
and recognition will take
Indiancinematotheglobal
stagewherethesepiecesof
art actually belong. After
years of sustainable ef-
forts, despite being
shunned several times,
people have sat up and no-
ticed our mettle.

RISE AND RISE
OF SOUTH FILMS
While Indians did win
Oscars in the past, this
win was special as it was for
the first time that an Indian
production and film won
the Academy Award. ‘The
Slumdog Millionaire’ that
won the Best Original Song
in 2009 was a predominantly
British production. The Naatu
Naatu fever had gripped
people across the world and
the dance sequence have had
millions of views on YouTube,
Instagram, and TikTok.
OUR NATION’S “RAY” OF HOPE...
As India celebrates its historic wins at the Oscar, here's a look
at the global icon Satyajit Ray, whose films, literature and art
continue to have an impact on audiences across the world. Ray
(1921-1991), polymath, polyglot, novelist, short-story writer, il-
lustrator, designer and music composer, was one of the most emi-
nent film directors of world cinema. His 'Pather Panchali' (Song
of the Little Road, 1955) established his position as a major film
director, winning him the earliest of the many awards that he was
to win throughout his career, culminating in the Lifetime Academy
Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
at the Oscars in 1992. The award, which he could not receive in
person because he was ailing, was given to him in recognition of
his rare mastery of the art of motion pictures and for his profound
humanitarian outlook, which has had an indelible influence on
filmmakers and audiences throughout the world.

Greetings to everyone on
the joyous occasion of Navroz,
may it bring new beginnings
and fresh opportunities to all.
Wishing everyone a blessed
Parsi New Year!
here has been a
spurt in anti-
Muslim senti-
ment in Maha-
rashtra with
Hindutva organisations
and some BJP leaders sup-
porting rallies organised
over the last four months.
At these gatherings the
Hindutva leaders have
been calling for an eco-
nomic boycott of Muslims
to push them to penury.
Early this week right wing
organisations held a rally
at Mumbai’s Mira Road un-
der the Jan Aakrosh Mor-
cha where leaders spoke of
Islamic aggression in the
form of love jihad, land ji-
had and conversion. They
specifically targeted the
Naya Nagar locality in
Mira Road for its sizeable
97-98 percent Muslim pop-
ulation. The speakers re-
ferred to the Muslims as
jihadis and asked “where
will Hindus seek refuge”.
Kajal Hindustani, one of
the speakers, explained
that the economic boycott
of Muslims is one weapon
the use of which “cannot
be stopped by the political
leaders, the Supreme Court
or even the media”. Al-
though Maharashtra’s BJP
government has distanced
itself from these rallies,
those present at Mira Road
included BJP MLA Nitesh
Rane, local BJP leaders
and members of VHP and
Bajrang Dal. Rane said he
supported calls for an eco-
nomic boycott of Muslims.
The Hindu hardliners
think that call for econom-
ic boycott will not attract
censor but it also amounts
to hate against a commu-
nity just as calling Mus-
lims jihadis and issuing
open threats to the commu-
nity members do. The eco-
nomic boycott would tanta-
mount to a social boycott
of Muslims. The Jan Aak-
rosh Morcha’s rallies pose
a threat to harmonious co-
existence. On the Supreme
Court’sordersthespeeches
are being recorded by the
police. Action will follow
based on legal advice.

BJP IS JUST A TENANT, NOT
OWNER OF DEMOCRACY: CONG
New Delhi: The BJP on Tuesday dubbed Con-
gress leader Rahul Gandhi as the “present-
day Mir Jafar of Indian polity” who went
overseas seeking help from foreign forces to
become a ‘nawab’ in India. Stepping up its
attack on Ganhi over his democracy in danger
remark in London, BJP spokesperson Sambit
Patra reiterated the demand for an apology. “It
would not be an aberration to say that Rahul
Gandhi is a present-day Mir Jafar of Indian
polity. What he has done in London is the
same thing that Mir Jafar did,” Patra said.
New Delhi: The Congress on Tuesday said
the ruling BJP is just a tenant and not the
owner of democracy and asserted that hold-
ing the govt to account does not amount to
criticising the nation. Congress spokesperson
Pawan Khera said that the BJP was resorting
to “theatrics” and “drama” to divert country’s
attention from the Adani issue. He said the
BJP will be seen as “Jai Chands” in history
and claimed its ideological forefathers were

BJP attacked Rahul Gandhi as “Mir Jafar”.

these was prohibited.
By establishing the
Arya Samaj, Maharshi
Dayanand awakened

which had been in slum-

the first one after Ved
Vyas to bring the Vedas

form, Shah said at its
148th Foundation Day
.
In the pre-independ-
ence era when talking
about “swadharma,
swabhasha and swaraj”
was prohibited, Ma-
harshi Dayanand fear-

in the country, he said.
Shah said that in
spite of having Gujarati
as his mother tongue
and expertise in San-
skrit, he chose Hindi for
his writings. Shah said
PM Narendra Modi has
taken inspiration from
the life of Dayanand
Saraswati to take the
country forward on the
path of making it a
“vishwa guru”.

Thakur changes...
Under Thakur’s lead-
ership, a total of 65
channels took part in
the auction and a rev-
enue collection of Rs
1,072 crore was gener-
ated by the Ministry
through auction to
these channels. Nota-
bly, in the year 2022,
the revenue collection
was only Rs 657 crore.
In fact, such was the
excitement around
the auction that even
though it was held on
weekend - Saturday
and Sunday - the auc-
tion received wide-
spread participation.
Moreover, on Sunday
itself, 13 slots were
auctioned while on
Saturday, 14 slots
were auctioned. Re-
nowned channel
Bharat24 also auc-
tioned for a slot for
over Rs 17 crore!
Thus, probably for
the first time in the
history of DD FREE
DISH, such a huge rev-
enue jump has been
registered and as a re-
sult, individuals asso-
ciated with the media
industry are congratu-
lating Anurag Thakur!

  • 4. FOR INDIAN CINEMA…FILM ABHI BAKI HAI he party has just begun. The night is still young. Indian Cinema was BIG and at the global podium… be it Venice, Berlin or Cannes… Indian Cinema was always credited for its make. However, with the success at the Oscar 2023, fully home-grown Indian Cinema has finally tri- umphedagainstall“odds”! Since the Fifties, Indian Cinema has created a rip- ple in the celluloid world. Today, we take a look at the baby steps that Indian cinema in general took post-Independence, un- knowingly that collective- ly India would create a niche (albeit small) in the arena of world cinema. We have several times asked ourselves why was the great dream merchant icon Raj Kapoor so popu- lar in Russia? The answer is perhaps the optimism of the charismatic actor that inspired Russians to brave through their trou- bled times. In the early fifties, just after the devastating war with Germany, the coun- try was still in ruins and people were poor and their lives were full of pri- vations and shortages. But when they saw great- er hardships being faced by the poor from India and too with a smile, it boosted their sagging optimism. So, after watching Awara and Shri 420, Raj Kapoor became a symbol of hope and optimism for the peo- ple of Soviet Union. Also, the common man shares perhaps the same spiritual values as per- haps all Indian movies gives the message of ‘vic- tory of good over evil’. This is perhaps the yearn- ing of every downtrodden soul in the world and it is so eternally bonded. Believe it or not, in the late Eighties this anecdote reveals exactly how big B Subhash’s Disco Dancer was in Russia. When the then USSR leader Mikhail Gorbachev visited New Delhi, Prime Minister Ra- jiv Gandhi introduced Amitabh Bachchan as the ‘biggest superstar from India’, but Gorbachev ap- parently said, “But my daughter only knows Mithun Chakraborty .” After Disco Dancer’s re- lease in Soviet Union thea- tres in 1984, Disco Dancer grossed a whopping $76 millioninthatcountry .For the record, that is $100 mil- lion more than what Pad- maavatgrossedworldwide. MithunChakraborty-star- rer Disco Dancer was the highest grossing foreign film in the Soviet Union! BUT THESE WERE IN BITS AND PIECES… Pather Panchali was re- leased in Basusree, a Cal- cutta cinema on August 26, 1955 and received a poor initial response. The screenings started filling up within a week or two, buoyed by word of mouth. It opened again at another cinema, where it ran for seven weeks. A delay in subtitling led to postpone- ment of the UK release till Dec 1957. It went on to achieve great success in the US in 1958, running for eight months at Fifth Avenue Playhouse in New York.WB govt which pro- duced the film earned a profit of $50,000 from its initial US release, and dec- ades later the film grossed $402,723 from its 2015 lim- ited release. Lagan, on its part, made it to a close call at cine- ma’s biggest stage in the world, but missed chance to make the cut. Even as the maestro Ray received the Lifetime Achievement from Oscar, home-gown Indian cinema (as I termed it earlier in this column) had to wait in general for some more time before Naatu Naatu “Trunk Call” of The El- ephant Whisperers made it big at Academy Awards. This year’s unprece- dented night at the Acade- my Awards is a manifesta- tion of years of cerebral and emotive filmmaking without the expectation of any recognition from the West. In recent times, thanks to technology and money power, India has taken major strides in globally communicating through its popular medi- um of cinema and Films likeKantara(Telugu),RRR (Telugu), Pariyerum Peru- mal (Tamil), Sairat (Mar- athi)Mandela(Tamil),and Asuran (Tamil) The El- ephant Whisperers have been enough proof of this trend which has finally ar- rived. It is not that Indian cinema has not received recognition in the past from the Academy . But the recent bumper successes signify the Indian time- tested interests in equality , fraternity, human liberty and justice. These films and recognition will take Indiancinematotheglobal stagewherethesepiecesof art actually belong. After years of sustainable ef- forts, despite being shunned several times, people have sat up and no- ticed our mettle.

The Naatu Naatu fever had gripped people across the world and the dance sequence have had millions of views on YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok. OUR NATION’S “RAY” OF HOPE... As India celebrates its historic wins at the Oscar, here's a look at the global icon Satyajit Ray, whose films, literature and art continue to have an impact on audiences across the world. Ray (1921-1991), polymath, polyglot, novelist, short-story writer, il- lustrator, designer and music composer, was one of the most emi- nent film directors of world cinema. His 'Pather Panchali' (Song of the Little Road, 1955) established his position as a major film director, winning him the earliest of the many awards that he was to win throughout his career, culminating in the Lifetime Academy Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences at the Oscars in 1992. The award, which he could not receive in person because he was ailing, was given to him in recognition of his rare mastery of the art of motion pictures and for his profound humanitarian outlook, which has had an indelible influence on filmmakers and audiences throughout the world.

TOP TWEETS Jagat Prakash Nadda @JPNadda Greetings to everyone on the joyous occasion of Navroz, may it bring new beginnings and fresh opportunities to all. Wishing everyone a blessed Parsi New Year! here has been a spurt in anti- Muslim senti- ment in Maha- rashtra with Hindutva organisations and some BJP leaders sup- porting rallies organised over the last four months. At these gatherings the Hindutva leaders have been calling for an eco- nomic boycott of Muslims to push them to penury. Early this week right wing organisations held a rally at Mumbai’s Mira Road un- der the Jan Aakrosh Mor- cha where leaders spoke of Islamic aggression in the form of love jihad, land ji- had and conversion. They specifically targeted the Naya Nagar locality in Mira Road for its sizeable 97-98 percent Muslim pop- ulation. The speakers re- ferred to the Muslims as jihadis and asked “where will Hindus seek refuge”. Kajal Hindustani, one of the speakers, explained that the economic boycott of Muslims is one weapon the use of which “cannot be stopped by the political leaders, the Supreme Court or even the media”. Al- though Maharashtra’s BJP government has distanced itself from these rallies, those present at Mira Road included BJP MLA Nitesh Rane, local BJP leaders and members of VHP and Bajrang Dal. Rane said he supported calls for an eco- nomic boycott of Muslims. The Hindu hardliners think that call for econom- ic boycott will not attract censor but it also amounts to hate against a commu- nity just as calling Mus- lims jihadis and issuing open threats to the commu- nity members do. The eco- nomic boycott would tanta- mount to a social boycott of Muslims. The Jan Aak- rosh Morcha’s rallies pose a threat to harmonious co- existence. On the Supreme Court’sordersthespeeches are being recorded by the police. Action will follow based on legal advice.

Under Thakur’s lead- ership, a total of 65 channels took part in the auction and a rev- enue collection of Rs 1,072 crore was gener- ated by the Ministry through auction to these channels. Nota- bly, in the year 2022, the revenue collection was only Rs 657 crore. In fact, such was the excitement around the auction that even though it was held on weekend - Saturday and Sunday - the auc- tion received wide- spread participation. Moreover, on Sunday itself, 13 slots were auctioned while on Saturday, 14 slots were auctioned. Re- nowned channel Bharat24 also auc- tioned for a slot for over Rs 17 crore! Thus, probably for the first time in the history of DD FREE DISH, such a huge rev- enue jump has been registered and as a re- sult, individuals asso- ciated with the media industry are congratu- lating Anurag Thakur!
