Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said that the people who were imprisoned during Emergency would be entitled for a pension and a citation. Fadnavis declared the same during the on-going monsoon session at Maharashtra Legislative Assembly in Mumbai today afternoon.

The CM said, More than money, pension was an honour for those who served jail term during the Emergency. Many people refused pension. But some are still poor, who lost jobs after being arrested for no fault of theirs.

Minister of State for Relief and Rehabilitation Madan Yerawar while responding to NCP leader Ajit Pawars question had said that so far around 3,267 applications for pension were approved. Out of the 3267 applications, 1,179 were approved on the basis of the Rs100 stamp paper submitted to prove that the applicant served a jail term during the Emergency. He added that a budget of Rs 42 crore was finalised for the pension scheme, out of which around Rs 29 crore has been disbursed.

People who were jailed for a month would be entitled to a monthly pension of Rs 5,000. Those who were jailed for a longer period will get Rs10,000 per month. Those who were imprisoned then and have now died, their family members would be provided with a monthly pension of Rs 2,500 (for jail term of a month or less) and Rs 5,000 (for jail term of more than a month).

Former prime minister of India Indira Gandhi had imposed Emergency in the country from June 25, 1975 to March 21, 1977.

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!
