Book Review of Raj Sharma’s Journey with Mahatmaji; A Gripping Tale of The Journey of A Five Hundred Bank Note

Journey-with-Mahatmaji-book-review

Journey with Mahatmaji by Raj Sharma depicts the journey of a five hundred rupee note and the world of the humans seen through his eyes. Though the stories in the book are imaginary, one can easily relate with it. The division of the chapters into scenes is a good way of presenting the story. It breaks the monotony and also lends a fresh touch to the story.

The book Journey with Mahatmaji by Raj Sharma is about a unique journey where a bank note travels under different circumstances and is able to understand human emotions and sentiments. It realizes the need and their greed of the humans and the value that it has in their lives. It teaches as it travels and it learns lessons from its mistakes too. The language used in the book is lucid thereby making it easy for many readers. The scene by scene description about the travel of a non-living thing is a unique idea and the author must be thanked for bringing out such an idea in front of the audience. The narrative is so good that one at times will forget that one is reading the experiences of a common bank note!!

With demonetization taking such an important place in the lives of the people in India and with the ban of the old five hundred rupee note, the book will make for a good read for many of us and make us nostalgic about the old note with Bapu’s face on it!!

28th Biennial Indian Paint Conference Held in Bengaluru; Paint Industry To Grow by 2019-2020

28th-Biennial-Indian-Paint-Conference

Indian Paint Association (IPA), the apex body of the Indian paint industry announced the commencement of the 28th biennial Indian Paint Conference in Bengaluru. The dignitaries on the panel were IPA President, Mr. JalajDani (President – Supply Chain, HR & Chemicals, Asian Paints), IPA Vice President, Mr. Abhijit Roy (MD & CEO, Berger Paints), Nita Karmakar, CII Regional Director, Mr. KBS Anand, MD & CEO, Asian Paints, Mr. PravinChaudhari, ED, Kansai Nerolac, Mr. JayakumarKrishnaswamy, MD, Akzo Nobel, Mr. NK Bhatia, CMD, Premium Coatings and Chemicals and Mr. MineshSheth, IPA Convener.

Taking inspiration from the IT Capital of India, the conference theme ‘Varnam – Where Paint Meets Technology’ is based on leveraging technology for the paints industry. At the pre-conference media briefing, the IPA governing body members discussed the to-be launched report on the Indian Paint Market – “Size & Future of coating industry” compiled by Nielsen Corporation.

The conference will be inaugurated by the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Karnataka Shri. Siddaramaiah and Shri R.V. Deshpande, Hon’ble Minister for Commerce and Industries, Government of Karnataka.

The Indian paints industry has been growing at a rapid pace over the years. However the growth hasn’t been accompanied by supply of adequate skilled talent. IPA has been working closely with National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) to bridge the talent gap. Recently, IPA signed aMoU with NSDC under which it will train three lakh painters over the next three years.

The three-day conference will witness participation from a large number of paint manufactures and raw material vendors. There will be power packed sessions on a wide range of topics including GST, Skill development, Automation, Digital Transformation, Innovations and so on, which will be deliberated and moderated by renowned experts.

Sedin-Basante-Shooting

Speaking about the film, director Sanjoy Guha said “This is a mature love story. The three main characters are a famous dancer Anuradha (Indrani Dutta), fashion designer Rob (Debdut Ghosh) and painter Rishop (Koushik Sen). Rishop asks Anuradha to come to Vizag for an assignment and it is on the way to Vizag that she meets Rob when their luggage gets exchanged. What happens next? With whom does Anuradha fall in love are the twists which the audience will understand when they will watch the film”.

The scene that was being shot was a dance performance of Anuradha. Actress Indrani Dutta said “I love dancing and getting a chance to play a dancer in the film is a good role indeed. I am dancing along with my students and hence I have the duty of guiding them too when they are doing a step wrong. This is a romantic film and the music has been composed by Nachiketa who has done a brilliant job with it”.

Debdut Ghosh plays Robin Dutt also called as Rob. “The character is very passionate and is devoid of the rational emotions that humans usually have. He falls in love with the heroine only to understand that her attachment lies someplace else. What happens then? Does he get the love of his life? You have to watch the film to know who finally gets the lady love” added the actor with a smile.

The music has been composed by Nachiketa. The four songs in the film have been sung by Nachiketa, Rajnandini and others. A major part of the film has been shot in Vizag and some part is being shot in Kolkata.

The film is slated for release on Bengali New Year’s Day.

Tata Trusts U-Dream Football Programme; An Initiative to Improve Football Standard in India

Tata-Trusts-U-Dream-Football-Kids

Sport in India has never been considered as a viable career option. While cricket has done its bit in changing that idea, football is still some way behind. With India largely being an academic focused country, school football programmes suffer greatly because talented footballers are pushed away from the sport to focus on studies. But with the changing scenario, it is likely that schools and parents will help children find a balance between sport and academics.

To fuel the potential of the North Eastern region from where a large number of footballers hail from, Tata Trusts along with UDream Football initiated a program called ‘Tata Trusts U-Dream Football’ Programme, where Centre for Microfinance and Livelihoods, (an associate organisation seeded by Tata Trusts) would help to facilitate and directly implement programs on grass-root development of Indian football. The whole idea is to improve the standard of football in India and help India become one of the leading football playing countries in Asia.

Looking at the significance for football and the popularity the game is gaining in North East India, Tata Trusts in association with U Dream Football will dedicate its energies in uplifting the tremendous talent in the region.  In the process, opportunities for marginalised young children will be provided through an integrated learning programme that addresses their educational and skills requirements.

The core vision is to work towards a potential Football League for India eventually. The ecosystem that Tata Trusts and U Dream Football is creating for trained players in Europe and elsewhere will allow many football players a viable career option, long term jobs and a future for Indian football to feature in the global map of the game.
