Eminent Columnists

The naxalites brutally gunned down 76 police men of the CRPF in an ambush.

Man Mohan Singh was off on a tour of the USA and Brazil where he was to project the face of India.

Cyclonic winds had knocked out many dwellings in Bengal.

India had built its own cryogenic rocket and was test launching it.

IPL had announced two new teams. One for Kochi and one for Pune.

The Chief Minister of Gujarat was summoned by an enquiry commission regarding riots in Gujarat.

All that we Indians had to respond with was, “How dare she?”

“Ask her to return all the medals and honours she won.”

“Are there no Indian Muslims left that she had to marry a Pakistani?”

How is it the concern of millions of Indians that a little Indian girl, who had done better than any other Indian girl in tennis,
was marrying someone?

That she was considered a ‘decent’ player internationally and nothing more.

That she also came from a family that loved her and nurtured her.

We are quickly turning into masters of the mundane and futile.

That great matches and awesome cricketing talent is on display is not as important as a Ministers’ alleged affection
for a lady [a very pretty one at that] from Dubai.

The importance of something that doesn’t concern us is supreme.

Particularly if it concerns the personal life of others.

People take umbrage, spit venom, turn patronizing, abusive, in fact they turn to give their opinion.

How should it affect us if Sania Mirza is marrying?

I’ve known this girl as a little kid of maybe 16. And now, she is all of what? 22?

Somewhere along the way, almost everyone I know appropriated her for his or her brand of Hyderabad and India. An epitome of sportswomen in the Nation. A person to look up to.

New parents of little girls named their daughters after her with the hope that they would emulate her.

Everyone conveniently forgot that within that idol lives a small girl, gritty and determined who has now turned into a woman.

Happens everywhere. In everyone’s house. Their sister’s, daughter’s, niece’s..… everyone.

They all grow up, most of them fall in love and a few of them listen to you and believe that you are the wisest person on
earth, so any choice made by you for them is brilliant. They will wear a red saree and not wear sneakers if you say so. They will attend a dance training school and skip the swimming classes, and so on.

Eventually, they will find their own level of comfort or discomfort. All that we have achieved is to breed a person who is incapable of thinking for herself.

Let her live her life. You had no say in it when she was training hard. It was her father and mother who fed her, clothed her and took her to tennis practise sessions assiduously who should be concerned. When they are happy, let’s look at something better.

How about running an effort to green Hyderabad?

Month: May 2010.


Till now we traversed the world of tribal jewellery from the different States of India. Let us now look into the history of traditional jewellery and its origins. Jewellery in India has been an unbroken tradition for over 5,000 years. Such is the skill of Indian jewellers that with time, the real flowers and leaves used by our ancestors inspired them to recreate the gifts of nature in gold and silver.

Doctor, can you suggest tips on how to maintain my skin and avoid acne; as I am prone to develop more pimples during these summer months. - Anita Joseph.

Have you ever seen a bunch of piranhas attack something in water? They just don’t give up. They come in droves. Anyone in water is game. Anyone in distress is better game. The objective is to satiate your appetite. Fair enough, reasonable, and logical. You are hungry and need food. My sympathies, even if they lie with the poor creature being devoured in water, I have no axe to grind with the fish. And even if I had, I’m pretty sure I would do it outside water, someplace safe where I have an upper hand!

This month we take a trip down West Bengal’s exquisite jewellery. Some of the main metals that are used in making jewellery in the state of West Bengal can be mentioned as gold, precious stones, silver, brass, zinc alloys, etc. Swankars is basically the caste that is involved in jewellery making. They used to make jewellery for the affluent higher class as well as the traditional tribal ornament typical of the state of West Bengal. Rose water sprinkle, pendants, brooches, armlets, hairpins etc are some of the examples of good and unique craftsmanship of Bengal. All of them are very exquisite in style.
