48-year-old Aarif Khan, who ferried the bodies of around 200 COVID-19 victims for their last rites in Delhi since March, died due to coronavirus at Hindu Rao Hospital on Saturday. Khan tested positive for COVID-19 on October 3 and succumbed to it a day after getting admitted to the hospital. 

Khan was employed with the Shaheed Bhagat Singh Sewa Dal, which provided free emergency ambulance services in Delhi-NCR. Khan was available 24*7 for ferrying COVID-19 victims for their last rites and would often pitch in money for the last rituals if the family needed financial help.

As per reports, Khan would sleep in an ambulance parking lot, which is nearly 28 km from his home in East Delhis Seelampur. Khan’s son Aadil told a daily: We met when he came over to pick essentials, like clothes. I used to go to check on him sometimes as we were always worried about him. But he never bothered about COVID-19. He just wanted to do his job well. 

Sadly, the man who ensured COVID-19 victims got a proper farewell did not get one himself as his family just saw his body from afar before his last rites.

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!
