Beauty and her lovable Beast: Rishi and Neetu Kapoor
I sat on the dining table with my sternest expression and launched into my disciplinarian mode, explaining not only why things had to be done but why they had to be done in a time frame and in a particular manner. It’s a familiar zone I enter into, especially given the fact that I’m mother to two teenagers. However, this time I just stopped and said, “You know, it’s so awful I have to be this person. It’s so unfair that I have to adopt this persona and be so responsible and firm and hard-nosed. I don’t like being this person. But I have to, because, having you kids made me into a parent. I was a kid too and I so enjoyed my freedom, my spontaneity, my give a damn attitude.” The fact is that having children force us into automatically becoming parents. The child within us who just wants to play and have fun suddenly gets riddled with roles and responsibilities. It’s actually terribly unfair to the part of us that doesn’t want to grow up. I’ve always said, “I’m fine with growing old, I’m not okay with growing up”. Also, there’s a big difference in being “childlike” and being “childish”.
The works on the walls at the Lalit Kala speak of soil tones, Athvayu says, adding that the walls are symbolic for him. “I can see so many colours in the single shade of mud and eyes look for colours all the time.”
The works that stand apart are the ones reflecting the mud toned textures of the soil. In one work, he uses the symbol of an eclipse. “I think of blending the smaller parts, the ‘aakriti’, as elements that are mixed I think of them as wholes and slice them – just the way we think of our thoughts.”

“Take a deep breath; keep it in as long as you can; exhale till you are empty of breath. Now, exhale some more,” said my yoga instructor. Really? How can you possibly exhale more after you are ‘empty’? Try, he encouraged. And sure enough, some breath still whooshed out with the effort.

We are not in 1962 and we are militarily strong, but India can’t afford a piecemeal approach to Doklam style events
The ongoing ‘skirmishes’ in the Doklam plateau have been engaging India’s attention as a behaviour that is ‘different from normal’ on part of the Chinese – assertive, provocative and obdurate. That a third party, Bhutan, is involved adds to the murkiness. A closer look, however, shows it as no different from Sun Tzu’s principle of strategic deception.
