Actress Bhumi Pednekar says her character in the upcoming film, “Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitaare”, breaks all the tags associated with being a woman.

“I think what I loved the most was the fact that this character (Kitty) is just about being a girl, just about being a person. We always have these tags — she is a good girl, she is a bad girl. This character breaks those tags,” Bhumi said.


Bhumi feels the audience hasn’t seen two sisters like Dolly and Kitty who aren’t perfect in the stereotypical sense of the word.

“In our film, the sisters are real and they are perfect in their own way. Human beings aren’t black and white. They are complex, they are unique and each person needs to be celebrated for who they are. Each person has an individual journey and story to tell. Our film does that brilliantly. It’s a film where the women decide to live on their own terms.”

Bhumi feels “Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitaare” has an incredibly fresh take on womanhood.

“Usually, women are pitted against each other. I think it’s a natural tendency just not for women but for all human beings to get competitive, especially if you are from the same family. However, by the end of it, a girl will be a girl and understand what the other girl is going through and it was this balance of humour and madness and drama that I loved about this film,” she said.

Prior to the brutal second wave of the pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had cautioned civil services probationers against developing the despised "babu mindset". He gave the invaluable piece of advice while addressing civil services probies at the well-known Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie via video-conferencing. He also outlined the keystone mantra of "minimum government and maximum governance".

With the recent collapse of the under-construction flyover in Bandra Kurla Complex which injured 14 labourers, it seems like the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has got the PM's keystone mantra all wrong. The recent flyover collapse isn't an isolated incident, in fact, a month ago a similarly bemusing incident took place in the eastern part of the suburbs.

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.
