ரவி ஸ்ரீனிவாஸ் சொல்லித்தான் மஹாசுவேதா தேவியை அறிந்து கொண்டேன். இன்றைய தினகரனில் மஹாசுவேதா தேவியாக நந்திதா தாஸ் நடிக்கும் அறிவுப்பு!

நந்திதாவின் வலைப்பதிவில் எதுவும் புதிதாக சிக்கவில்லை. கிடைத்த சில பழைய சரக்குகளில் இருந்து

Of the 28 feature films that I have acted in, 12 are disdainfully called “regional films”. For me doing a Kannathil Muthamittal in Tamil or an Aamar Bhuvan in Bengali were just as fulfilling, if not more so, than doing a film in Hindi. Actually let me correct myself, why am I even comparing? A Tamil or a Bengali film for me is no less or more than a film in Hindi or English. The criteria to choose a film remain the same, irrespective of the language. It is invariably the script, the director and the role, probably in that order! And sometimes it could simply be the director’s integrity and passion that is endearing and refreshing enough to take the plunge! …

…Since yesterday evening I have been very disturbed. Sadly such bombings are not outside our realm of imagination any more. So more than shock, I felt a deep sense of sadness and helplessness. I saw on the TV how so many innocent people were bleeding, sobbing and running in panic. The media, who brings it all to us, was often making it look like fiction with its dramatic commentary and with camera zooming into people’s wounds and distraught faces. I switched it off as I could take it no more. Maybe I didnt want to deal with the contradictions of life. Forget anaysis, I just didnt want to see it any more. It was too disturbing.

As we had to go for dinner to a friends place, we debated if we should and finally decided we will. There it was nice with all the diyas (lamps) and good food etc. People talked about the bomb blast and after expressing their sadness exchanged notes about the roads being empty and how they didn’t have to face the Diwali traffic! Then the conversations moved onto other things, as if it was business as usual.

What is scary is that we are getting used to violence and taking refuge in intellectual analysis and arguments. We are becoming violent ourselves by constantly pointing fingers at others and adding to the collective violence. We are making gross generalisations and interpreting things to suit our point of you. The reality is that people are suffering all over the world, all around us. These are people who have never really had a say in anything.

By reducing the discussion to communities and religion, we are forgetting that we are talking about millions of individuals. Each one equally precious. In every community there are women, old people, children and also men who are out there struggling to just survive. They are the biggest victims of all our hatred and prejudice. Lets strongly condemn all forms of violence and try and “be the change that we want to see in the world”.
