Several Nashik residents are shelling out thousands of rupees every month to travel to work to Mumbai in the absence of trains; many others have lost their jobs as they can’t afford road journeys. In times when one thought car-pooling would take a back seat, Pradip Bacchav shares a car with four others to get to Mumbai almost every day from Nashik. Each of them contributes Rs 500 to Rs 700 per day, shelling out nearly Rs 15,000 per month just to commute to work. A resident of Upnagar, Bacchav works with the Thane Municipal Corporation. His co-passengers are Sandeep Bhagat and Sunil Chaure from the BMC, Nitin Jagtap from the MTNL, and Makarand Ghaderao from the MSRTC. Bacchav’s family is, however, always worried of coronavirus infection as social distancing is not an option. The trains haven’t been running since March, but they all need to keep their kitchen fires burning, even if it means breaking the bank or their backs on pothole-riddled roads. While Central … [Read more...] about Lives derailed: Nashik residents spending huge amount to travel to Mumbai for work in absence of trains

Tarun RaiA photo of my daughter’s University football team was rather dystopian, I thought. This was, of course, during the stubble burning phase in Delhi last winter and since my daughter’s university was there, we, as concerned parents, had sent her a N99 mask. Little did we know then that a face mask would become de-rigueur for all of India just a few months later.The face mask will survive the current lockdown and will continue to be in use in the post Covid-19 world. And this is not the only thing that will become the ‘new normal’ once the crisis is over. Whether it is travel, entertainment, buying habits… even how we greet each other, will change. The economic effects of the post-Covid-19 world will again be startling. There will be a reassessment of current supply chains, another push back from a globalized world to a nationalistic one, of even greater emphasis on e-commerce, of increased government spending on public health… the list is … [Read more...] about Will WFH be the new normal in the ad world?
The return: performance and training Despite being offered a drama adviser’s job in a London County and the desire of a leading agency to have him on their books, he reserved two passages to India (“I was homesick”). After spending some three years in London, Alkazi sailed home with Roshen. He was now free to create the community of theatre that he thought necessary and possible in India. He had seen the ‘Vieux Colombier’ functioning in Paris, studied the work of Michel St Denis and, in particular, the thinking and approach of Stanislavsky, his Moscow Arts Theatre and the devoted way of life of its members. In Bombay, he set up the Theatre Unit School of Dramatic Arts. With very little money and no job, he trained interested young people gratis. Theatre in English and the European tradition was a poor relative of Indian language theatre in the city, being amateur in the true sense (amateur equals to he who loves). Perhaps it was this that kindled the … [Read more...] about Tribute: Farewell, Alkazi sahib
