your book on Rekha about This book is about 14-year-old Bhanurekha Ganesan who came from Madras to the Hindi film industry without knowing a word of Hindi; who was serially abused and exploited and humiliated She went through so many relationships and she was rejected because of her past her status as a child out of wedlock Rekha wanted a husband and children she had many relationships where she hoped for fulfilment — Jeetendra Vinod Mehra Kiran Kumar Amitabh Bachchan and finally Mukesh Agarwal After his suicide in 1990 she was blamed for everything and there was a witch hunt She was the bigger star in these relationships and she gave them everything but they didn’t reciprocate as much What she went through is not restricted to Bollywood it happens to so many women in our society Rekha never wanted what happened with her mother Pushpavalli (her lover Tamil superstar Gemini Ganesan never acknowledged her in public or married her) to happen to her — but it did You’re not a Rekha fan so what made you write the biography You reached out to her but were unsuccessful How did you go about writing the book It’s a ritual every year during an awards show to cut to Rekha’s face or Amitabh Bachchan’s face if the camera is on either of them Channels have made promos out of these shots to hike up the TRP I wanted to write a book that would make the reader think differently about Rekha When I realised that it would not be possible to speak to her I went about writing the book with a journalistic approach It took me more than a year to source interviews from scores of film magazines of the late ’60s ’70s and ’80s and I have written about Rekha as she described herself and her life in her own words I went to the National Film Archives in Pune I sourced magazines from collectors She used to give very lively interviews in those days before she came to be known as a reclusive diva I also spoke to those filmmakers producers who worked with her The most shocking part of her story for me was about her marriage to Agarwal and the events that followed So I began my book with that Your first book wasRajesh Khanna: The Untold Story of India’s First Superstar Did you notice a difference in how the film industry treats its women stars in comparison to the men Absolutely I spoke to producers and directors who worked with Rekha they’re quite old now but they still

Rajesh Khanna — about his drinking the different women who frequented his home — but he was a “shaandar mard (an excellent man)” Those who had good things to say about Rekha — Shyam Benegal Gulzar Muzaffar Ali — they have made their best films with Rekha Some people say that Rekha did several substandard films all through her career but nobody has cared to know why She was the sole breadwinner of her seven-member family Women weren’t paid at the same level as men they still don’t get equal pay but things were worse when Rekha began her career She took up as many projects as she could

otherwise be thrown away into thin films of biodegradable plastic they hope will be used to make eco-friendly grocery bags and packaging Six months into their two-year project the research team has managed to create a thin clear prototype using chitosan a material found in the shells of many crustaceans “If commercialised this could really help us decrease our waste… and it could help us improve our food exports because the plastic has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties” Irene Samy a professor overseeing the project told Reuters Watch all our videos from Express Technology The researchers buyfrom restaurants supermarkets and local fishermen at cheap prices Using shrimp shells is more sustainable because it could replace synthetic materials used in plastics and cut the amount of biowaste produced by the Egyptian food industry Samy said The shells are cleaned chemically treated ground and dissolved into a solution that dries into thin films of plastic a technique the team says has potential for large-scale industrial production “Egypt imports around 3500 tonnes of shrimp which produce 1000 tonnes of shells as waste… Instead of throwing the shells away we can make biodegradable plastic bags” Hani Chbib a researcher on the project told Reuters The project is a collaboration between the Nile University team of four and another research group at the University of

study has found Most children do not begin formal instruction in reading and writing until they turn five and enter kindergarten but these findings suggest that children as young as three may be tested to see how well their understanding of basic language concepts is progressing “Our results show that children have some knowledge about the fundamental properties of writing from a surprisingly early age” said study co-author Rebecca Treiman from Washington University in St Louis in the US (Also read: Parenting Tips: How does one prepare a child to face the world) “Based on the results it may be possible to determine at an early age which children are progressing well in the learning of emergent literacy skills and which children may need extra attention” Treiman added The study was based on two experiments with 114 children ages three to five years who had not yet received any formal instruction in reading or writing The children were tested to see how well they understood that a written word such as dog has one specific pronunciation (“dog”) as compared with a simple drawing of a dog which could be correctly labeled as the image of a dog a puppy or even a pet named Spot In the first test researchers read the written word “dog” to the children (Also read: Modern-day parenting: Follow these 6 rules for a happy family) Later when a puppet employed in the experiment and read the word “dog” as “puppy” many children picked up on the mistake In a similar task with drawings children were more likely to say that the puppet was correct in using the alternative label The different results in the writing and drawing conditions indicated that even young pre-readers have some understanding that a written word stands for one specific linguistic unit in a way that a
