rather they were searching for more modern means of expression” says Roy Bunraku was the answer Instead of hiding the puppeteer and making the puppet’s maneuvering look like magic Bunraku did not shy away from exposing the relationship between the puppet and his master “The freedom of expression Bunraku gives us is why we enjoy using it so much” says Roy adding “As many as 10 people can manipulate the puppet together” But this means that an extraordinary amount of effort must be concentrated on ensuring everyone is in sync “We even have to breath together We must be completely in tune” Roy says That’s another aspect of Bunraku that helps hone performers’ coordination skills “On stage your body is a space shared with other people and you have to be extremely cognizant of that” she says Roy was taught Bunraku while she was learning puppet theatre from the Dramatiska Institutet for Film TV Drama and Radio at The University of Stockholm in Sweden but she has now added her own techniques to the art Instead of the more elaborately dressed puppets used traditionally Roy’s puppets are just a mask and a piece of cloth In one show a sparsely dressed puppet has her one decoration — her hair — pulled out “You see this bald-headed look and from that arises a strong feeling of being left with nothing of being stripped of your dignity” she says Roy’s latest production The Mahabharata is an interpretation of the epic which they have been working on for 18 months It premiered last month in Bangalore The play uses Bunraku in conjunction with traditional leather shadow puppets from Karnataka and is supplemented with projected animations and an array of 16 different musical instruments including a didgeridoo Roy believes the epics will always be relevant because the questions of war and conflict remain extant “Seeing the epics just as religious texts is a very myopic viewpoint More than anything they taught me how individual choices can have enormous consequences” she says For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsJammu: A man has been arrested for allegedly using forged letters of external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj to get heli-tickets to the Mata Vaishnodevi cave shrine police said in Jammu on Saturday The accused Sandeep sold these tickets in the black market in Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir they said File image of Sushma Swaraj PTI "Police has solved the forgery case regarding selling of heli-tickets to the cave shrine of Mata Vaishnodevi in black market The accused acquired these tickets through the quota based on forged letters of the office of Sushma Swaraj Minister of External Affairs" a senior police officer said A case was registered against Sandeep at Katra police station SSP Reasi had constituted a special investigation team (SIT) headed by Sumir Kotwal Additional SP Katra to probe the matter although the celebrations at his home were low key due to a close relative’s demise.with the .which accounts for three quarters of all cases.

to say that a monthly per capita consumption expenditure of Rs 972 in rural areas and Rs 1407 in urban areas (at 2011-12 prices) would suffice to secure the necessities of life isn’t elegant or convincing On the whole a more flexible approach that seeks to identify vulnerable households based on non-fulfilment of clear parameters of exclusion would be both fair and transparent That being the case the SECC estimates of urban and rural poverty or deprivation levels at 35 per cent and 60 per cent respectively may be more in line with reality But estimation of poverty is only part of the story Equally important is the means for addressing it The conventional route of supplying wheat and rice at Rs 2-3 per kg when it costs 10 times more to procure and stock these is inherently leaky apart from being costly and distorting markets The way ahead is direct cash transfers to the Aadhaar-seeded bank accounts of identified beneficiaries Such transfers have worked well in the case of LPG subsidy gradually weeding out those not deserving of the benefit — including through a concerted “GiveItUp” campaign They can be extended to food and fertiliser subsidies scholarships and a host of other welfare programmes India’s poor deserve a new deal in welfare delivery For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Agencies | Los Angeles | Published: December 28 2010 4:41 pm Related News Actress Natalie Portman and her choreographer boyfriend Benjamin Millepied are engaged and expecting thier first baby The 29-year-old starwho likes to keep a low profile when it comes to her private lifesaid she is “indescribably happy” with the new developments in her lifethe Entertainment Weekly reported “I have always kept my private life private but I will say that I am indescribably happy and feel very grateful to have this experience” Portman said Portman met Millepied during the shooting of psychological drama ‘Black Swan’ and love blossomed between them The actresswho has already won a Golden Globe nominationis also a fruntrunner for an Oscar nomination in the Best Actress category for her portrayal of a ballerina in the movie Portman will next be seen in the romantic comedy ‘No Strings Attached’costarring Ashton Kutcher This will be the first child for the actress who is due in 2011 For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Updated: May 17 2017 12:56 am A few media reports have claimed that Nidhhi Agerwal was asked to vacate her flat but her spokesperson has refuted the rumours Related News You are definitely God’s special child if you don’t have to struggle to find a place to live in Mumbai Otherwise the process can be harrowing more so of you are single and from the glamour industry as is the case of debutante Nidhhi Agerwal Nidhi who will soon be seen romancing Tiger Shroff in Munna Michael hasn’t been able to find her own place for the fact that she is single and an actress She is currently staying with her college friend and her family and has been searching for a separate house from quite some time now but in vain A few media reports have claimed that Nidhhi was asked to vacate her flat but her spokesperson has refuted the rumours Niddhi Agerwal and Tiger Shroff in Munna Michael “The story that she had to vacate her fault is false She was new in Mumbai and had just signed her first film So she decided to stay with her college friend and her family Now that the film’s shoot is over and promotions are starting she finally got time to look for a place for herself But because she is single and an actress she is finding it difficult to get a place” Nidhhi’s spokesperson told indianexpresscom Munna Michael is set to hit the theatres on July 21 this year Directed by Sabbir Khan it also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui Ronit Roy and Sana Saeed The dance film has been produced by Eros International and Next Gen Films It marks the third collaboration between Tiger and Sabbir after Heropanti and Baaghi For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Mumbai | Published: August 19 2017 2:38 am Top News Mumbai led the rest of the country in supply of retail space in the first half of 2017 says a study by CBRE South Asia Pvt Ltd a real estate consulting firm The firm says the first half of 2017 saw an addition of about 15 million square feet of fresh supply across the seven key cities;
