In a rare instance, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari ditched his convoy on September 13 to take a ride in Nagpur Municipal Corporation’s electric bus ‘Tejaswini.’ Gadkari took the bus ride from Automotive Square till Gitanjali Talkies Square, where he was supposed to reach for a bhoomipujan ceremony.
On September 13, Gadkari inaugurated Nagpur’s first CNG and LNG Mother Station by Rawmatt Industries near Automotive Square. Nagpur Mayor Nanda Jichkar along with Bunty Kukde (Chairman, Transport Committee, NMC) were also present during the inauguration. When Gadkari, who’s a well-known advocator of alternate fuel, came to know that the fleet of electric buses was parked outside the venue, he decided to take a look at the bus.
As Gadkari inspected and later sat in the bus, he decided to reach Gitanjali Talkies Square by the bus itself and instructed his convoy to follow the bus.
‘Tejaswini’ buses launched by NMC would strictly have women conductors and drivers. With a capacity of over 50 passengers, once the buses are charged, they would be able to run up to 200 kms. Panic button along with CCTV facility have been set up in case of emergency. The buses that have automatic doors, have been provided with mobile charging points at each window seat.
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!
