2:15 pm You’ve barely started to appreciate a musician’s delicate hand before she has to put her instrument aside (Source: Express photo) Top News It’s the season for classical music- but going to performances can be a mentally exhausting experience Most nights there’s bound to be a succession of three of four musicians each playing 45-minute segments You’ve barely started to appreciate a musician’s delicate hand before she has to put her instrument aside And now you’re assailed by another performer another instrument and another style of playing Those festivals that took place decades ago in the 70s you think were really quite wonderful Each artiste had the freedom to perform for four or five hours at a time- one could really connect with the music Watch What Else Is Making News: That’s the kind of atmosphere at Bahauddin Dagar wants to bring back with the Sannidhi festival taking place from January 27 to 30 at St Andrews Auditorium Bandra West Dagar who founded the four-day performing arts festival says that Sannidhi stands out for giving each artist an entire evening to play for as long as they wish Kicking off the festival is Kalipa Venu one of the leading exponents of Kuttiyattam the ancient classical Sankrit theatre from Kerala and will be followed by Kolkata-based sitarist Mita Naig Dhrupad vocalists Ritwik and Ribhu Sanyal and Carnatic vocalist Alamelu Mani With no restrictions on how long a performance can be each musician can concentrate on the quality of his performance rather than feel pressured to complete it within a certain period of time “Nowadays most performances have gotten shorter and are clubbed with others because big companies have started sponsoring these events Everything turns into a show of publicity; entertainment becomes more important than just spending time with classical music In addition newspapers have slowly stopped doing reviews or criticism of classical music” says Dagar He recalls being a child and frequenting Rang Bhavan now closed for concerts Beginners would be given a full two hours to perform and the maestros up to seven “There are many old admirers of classical music like me who think music is a thing of leisure that one should get lost in” says Dagar “They welcome the Sannidhi festival as a return to the true form of classical music” Naig a musician at Sannidhi explains the development of a performance “The progression is slow and systematic There’s a lot of focus on the richness of an individual swara There are four to five stages of development in just the alap or the opening section in a piece of music each of which takes 10-15 minutes to showcase You have to explore the depth and nuances of each note as well as the space between the notes It’s a spiritual meditative exercise” Naig says “At Sannidhi I am really going to enjoy playing the original Dhrupad style of music without having to cut it short” It’s not just the audience who is left disappointed after an abbreviated concert Musicians themselves suffer “While a very established musician knows how to put some elements aside and play only certain parts for an hour-long performance younger musicians start thinking there’s a formula to secure your spot at music festivals- which does not make for a great performance” says Dagar But there’s no cause for worry about that at Sannidhi “I’ve chosen each musician based on the fact that they have never felt they must cater to their audience They are true artists These musicians set the standard for our country’s classical music” he says For all the latest Lifestyle

that have filled our hearts with love for this country Top News Koi bhi desh perfect nahi hota usse perfect banana padta hai This was one of the famous lines of R Madhavan in Rang De Basanti and the same can be said in terms of Bollywood films Many may complain that Bollywood films are all about a girl and a boy falling in love they dance fight a couple of villains and then living happily ever after but thanks to a few good releases the industry has given you much to look forward to Although we do not specifically need an Independence Day or Republic Day to watch these fictional and films based on real-life events they have a special meaning when you watch them on these special days Here is a look back at these special movies Airlift When Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait in 1190 nearly 170000 lives of Indians were in grave danger As they struggled to survive in a war zone a few good men rose to the occasion Airlift is a fictionalised account of how Ranjit Katyal (Akshay Kumar) engineered an escape and facilitated the airlift of all the Indians back home This was one of the largest civilian evacuations in the world and although the film had several flaws Airlift brought out the actor in superstar Akshay Kumar He is a hero who feels pain and cries on his wife’s shoulders when he feels helpless Even in the action scenes he does not play the hero but reacts realistically when he’s beaten up Lakshya Amidst films like Dhoom Veer Zaara and Yuva came Hrithik Roshan-starrer film Lakshya that spoke about the coming of age and gave millennial kids many goals for life Lakshya may not have been a great commercial success despite that it ended up becoming a benchmark in any society any profession any given era The film captured the massive transformation of a good-for-nothing spoiled brat Karan Shergill to an army officer with an aim to protect his country The fire within him sparked when his girlfriend Romilla Dutta (Preity Zinta) chose to break off her engagement as she couldn’t respect him Although their love story was quite necessary for the base of the story it did not become the focal point of the film which was just a reminder that love life is important but that probably cannot be the only focus in one’s life Rang De Basanti Amidst ‘masti-ki-paathshala’ and ‘khal bali’ Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra introduced us to Rang De Basanti a decade ago The film has completed 10 years but its appeal has not waned The film gained instant popularity and made the youth aware of the power they possess to change the country The film was neither a commercial film nor an art film it was something we have never seen before and each time you watch it the film will inspire you Legend of Bhagat Singh Legend of Bhagat Singh is probably something for the youth and politicians of today and also those who wish well for the country Of course there have been other films that dealt with Bhagat Singh’s life but this film reminds you of all the sacrifices losses and courage the freedom fighters then had faced to achieve ‘azadi’ from colonial rule Ajay Devgn was brilliant in his portrayal and also won a National Award for the film AR Rahman’s music adds to the patriotic fervour Swades Even now superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s Swades and Chak De India are counted as his best films Mohan Bhargava (Shah Rukh Khan) who works as a project manager at

better than seeing Bollywood and cricket come together with a touch of patriotism It was also India’s official entry to the Oscars in 2002 Mary Kom A biopic based on Mary Kom’s life the film tells the story of how the daughter of a rice farmer in Manipur managed to become the five-time world champion in boxing It’s a story of passion determination and courage Of course a lot of it is powered by the striking performance by Priyanka Chopra One can feel her frustration as she throws a chair at the selectors for unfairly rewarding her opponent or when she tells a sports association member “Kabhi kisi ko itna bhi maat darao ki darr hi khatam ho jaye” She falters she falls but she rises again beating all odds Namastey London When you’re set to watch a typical Bollywood film there’s a tip

and broke the concept that Indians are backward Jasmeet Malhotra a Punjabi girl raised in London is determined to not marry an Indian guy Her father (Rishi Kapoor) is determined that she will marry an
