Actor Varun Dhawan will next be seen in the dance movie “Street Dancer 3D”, and is these days heaping praise on the dancing talent of the country. He claims over the next ten years, India will take over the global dance scene.

“The kind of talent Indian dancers have, I can say proudly we are one of best countries when it comes to dance. In the next 10 years, India is going to take over the dance scene. Dancers in our country struggle a lot because dance never used to be considered as a profession,” said Varun Dhawan, at the launch of the song “Garmi” from “Street Dancer 3D” in Mumbai. He was accompanied by co-actor Nora Fatehi, the film’s director Remo D’Souza and producer Lizelle D’Souza.


He added: “I have spent so much time with dancers — and Remo sir is one of them — because he started as a background dancer. It gets really tough when parents of dancers or society don’t look at dance as a career. They (Parents) feel that their kids are damaging their family’s reputation by dancing because it is not work.

I feel that it’s work. They (dancers) travel to train in the morning and then reach their dancing venues. Sometimes they practice on the road, so this film is dedicated to all the dancers because if you can feel the music then anybody can dance.”

“Street Dancer 3D” will clash with the Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari-directed “Panga”, starring Kangana Ranaut, on January 24, about which Varun said: “Ashwiny and (her husband and filmmaker) Nitesh sir are people I have met on a few occasions. Kangana (Ranaut) is someone I have known for a lot of years and I admire her work. I feel both films are very different and we are in 2020, so I think we shouldn’t think about box-office clash. I feel people should watch both the films. This film (‘Street Dancer 3D’) genuinely marks my return to doing films for kids. For the longest time, I did not made a film for kids and when I say kids, there is a kid inside all of us so. So, this film is for all of you. I hope kids and parents will have a good time watching the film.”

“Street Dancer 3D” highlights India-Pakistan issues through the scope of dance and music.

Talking about the film’s message, Varun said: “Our characters in the film are dancing for India, and (they are) Pakistani immigrants. I think your motive behind being a dancer matters, and it drove me to do the film. Dance is not only for enjoyment but through the medium you can express a lot and you can change lives. In our country, when a kid is born or at birthday parties and at weddings, we dance a lot. I feel we are a very expressive dancing nation.”

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.
