Express: “The CoA has been pleading with the (BCCI) office-bearers and they didn’t see reason Now the court has asked for a show-cause which was inevitable They have been very intransigent and nobody can dare to take on the highest court of the land” During the arguments Subramanium referred to the fifth status report of the COA and said that as per it the office bearers have not taken steps to implement the Lodha panel recommendations In its fifth report the COA headed by former CAG Vinod Rai had sought the removal of BCCI office-bearers – Khanna Choudhary and Chaudhry Subramanium said the

Bartosz M Kowalski Top News “Every morning we get up to a flood of news with a lot of violence in it but do we even notice While going through our daily dose of newspaper a celebrity going on a vacation and a person getting killed in daylight is equally exciting or not exciting for us We have actually stopped sensing the violence and its omnipresence in our lives” said Polish director Bartosz M Kowalski whose Polish film Playground was screened at Pune International Film Festival on Friday Sharing the point of trigger for Playground he said “In 1993 a two-year-old kid was abducted from a shopping mall in Liverpool and was actually cut into pieces by two boys aged 10 years The news shook me to the core As an artiste I could not take this as just another incident of crime It compelled me to do a lot of research on child psychology and then the child psychopaths I found many other incidents in which children were involved in gross violence I just could not stop there I had to vent it out and thus the film came into being” The film is made in a very non-stereotypical way which the director said was deliberate “These days we see a lot of violence in our movies and it does not even register in our minds When people are being killed on our screens we keep munching on our popcorn” he said adding that he was wary of Playground being seen in the same way which made him treat the film in an unconventional way It included minimum use of lights while shooting no crane shots no close-ups and less camera craft” he said “I didn’t want them to think that this is just a film and not to be taken seriously I wish they take it as a matter of fact something which is not merely happening on the screen but can happen with ourselves when we step out of the theatre” he added According to Kowalski the violence that is seen in the children is sometimes rooted in their surroundings families and his upbringing Sometimes troubled relationships of the parents the political surroundings like refugee crises and civil wars also seed violence in the minds of the toddlers “We need to sit down and think what are we giving in legacy to our next generations The rise of far right governments around the world the extremist stands that are being taken openly and even the outright promotion of violence by those who matter is a serious thing We can’t afford not to take cognisance of all this” said the young filmmaker For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Shekhar Gupta | Published: January 14 2012 1:34 am Related
