Making good use of the opportunity, Department of Social Welfare of the NMC (Nagpur Municipal Corporation) has commenced a commendable drive to make beggars and homeless in the city self-reliant. Under the Deendayal Antyodata Yoajan, NMC is providing skill-based training to more than 1200 people, who are currently staying at around 20 shelter homes in the city because of the lockdown imposed to contain spread of coronavirus.

Speaking to Nation Next, Manish Soni, Public Relation Officer, NMC, said, This unique initiative is a joint venture between of NMC, NULM (National Urban Livelihoods Mission) and Nagpur Police department. As part of the initiative, we shifted beggars, homeless and migrant labourers who lost their jobs to free urban shelter homes. We are training these people to make them self-reliant even after lockdown. These skill trainings include carpentry, knitting, shoe-making, building bird nests, culinary trainings, and many more.

Whats even more amazing is that NMC is also taking good care of these people and giving them a makeover. Soni added, We are providing them with breakfast, lunch, dinner, tea, good clothes, new bedsheets, etc., so that they don’t have to live on streets. We are giving them makeover by trimming their beards and cutting their hair. These people are also undergoing Yoga classes and Zumba classes for their health and fitness.

NMC Commissioner Tukaram Mundhe said, These people are part of the community and NMC is conducting these skill development activities for them so that they live with dignity. People are being trained according to their interest areas.

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!
