When Indira Gandhi became India’s first woman Prime Minister

India 1966, upon the sudden demise of second Prime Minister of India, late Lal Bahadur Shastri, who would now lead India and the government, was a serious question and race for power began in Delhi.
Let us look at the incident, which changed Indian politics forever and named Nehrus daughter, Indira Gandhi as India’s first woman Prime Minister.
Senior Congress leader late Morarji Desai and Syndicates choice late Indira Gandhi, were the two candidates, contesting for PM’s office. Due to the inter-party differences, Congress Party, which was governing Centre at that time, could not decide upon one name for the post of Prime Minister.
The then Congress President, late K Kamaraj, wanted to resolve this matter within the party but Desai was adamant on calling for a parliamentary election. Desai was quoted saying, Congresss working committee can’t decide the countrys Prime Minister, the representatives of Indian people sitting in the parliament, should.
Kamaraj agreed on having elections and a date was decided. Media persons gathered in large numbers, as parliamentarians (Lok Sabha Rajya Sabha) were voting for the next Prime Minister of India.
A reporter from outside called, Who is it? boy or girl?? a voice came from inside of the parliament building and said, It’s a girl, girl in white khadi sari with a shawl. That’s how on 19 January 1966, India and the world got to know that Indira Gandhi defeated Morarji Desai by securing 355 votes from 524 and became, the third Prime Minister of India.
Gandhi succeeded Shastri and went on governing India from 1966-1977. She again came back to power in 1980 and governed till 1984. On 31st October 1984, she was assassinated by her own bodyguards at her residence, in Delhi.

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

Kantara poster

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!
