The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has planned to open 10 burial grounds on the outskirts of Bengaluru for people who die of COVID-19, irrespective of their religion.

According to reports, 10 new burial grounds would be coming up on 23 cares of land across five locations. The grounds will be used for burying bodies from all religions and sects.

Civic Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad informed that the Revenue Department is in the process of handing over the land they identified for the grounds. Once the process is done, the department will immediately make these burial grounds functional.

The Archdiocese of Bangalore, earlier had written to Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa seeking grant of land on Bengalurus outskirts for burial grounds for those who succumbed to COVID-19.

Peter Machado, Archbishop of Bengaluru wrote in his letter, Christianity doesn’t consider cremation as the mode of last rites. Giving the bodies of patients who die of COVID-19 for cremation causes much mental trauma for family members.

Religions such as Christianity and Islam do not believe in cremation. There has been a growing demand to allow people to bury the dead. Places that are being earmarked will at least give the family a chance to bid their dead ones farewell with dignity, a BBMP official said.

And that’s how a film is made – Kantara shows the way! | Movie review

Social media is buzzing with one word today and that word is Kantara! Yes, another Kannada film after KGF that has caught the people’s fancy and how. In fact, this one goes a notch higher than KGF – because the film has been released only in Kannada with English subtitles and yet – the movie is capturing the hearts of people across India and the world.

From California, London and Berlin to cities across India, high praise is pouring in for the Rishab Shetty starrer and the actor-director’s Twitter feed is testimony to this. Ordinary cine-goers are putting screenshots of housefull bookings, sharing videos of people clapping and whistling in theatres and then profusely thanking the star for making this film.

So, what’s this film about? Kantara (which means forest in Sanskrit) stands out because it has powerful storytelling at its core. It is rooted in local folklore, has the right amount of action and adventure and comes with a social message too. Man versus nature, native customs and local politics, which spans three timelines and a climax that’s to die for, is what the film’s about. Add to this some superlative performances by the cast, a stellar background score by B Ajaneesh Loknath and mind-blowing cinematography by Arvind S Kashyap that serenades Karnataka’s rustic locales and you have what can be called the perfect recipe for a blockbuster film. Telling you more will just be a spoiler! So, what are you waiting for? Go watch!
