Nora Fatehi- I know the struggle of being a dancer. Flickr

Actress-dancer Nora Fatehi says dance is a valuable form of art and wants people to celebrate it more.

“I want to do it ‘Dil Se’ (from the heart) because I know what the struggle is to be a dancer. Somehow I don’t understand, how dance is one of the best forms of art, the most valuable forms of art, but I don’t understand why, it’s not celebrated the way it should be,” she said.

Further expressing her disappointment in the lack of acknowledgment and appreciation for dancers, Nora said: “The biggest icons we have till today were all remarkable dancers, Michael Jackson – he would come on stage, and blow the world away, Beyonce – another one, Janet Jackson, all these people. Prabhu Deva, when he would move, he would blow your mind away because he would do things that are almost impossible to do, a layman couldn’t do it.”


Nora Fatehi has given several hits on songs like Saki Saki, Pachtaoge, and many more. Flickr

“For something that a normal person couldn’t do, why is it not being celebrated and uplifted the way people celebrate actors. An actor would do one scene in a movie and people go ‘oh my God! actor actor actor’. They get all the awards in the world, they get all the praises, but I just don’t see an award show where people are giving awards to performers, the dancers. Sometimes songs make movies a hit and there’s no category for that performer, why? I don’t understand that.

“What about the performers, that break their knees for the performance, that bleed for the songs, because if you see the BTS (behind the scene) of the people that do songs, you would be amazed that Oh! There’s so much that goes behind that,” she added.

Opening up about the varied skill sets of the artistes, Nora said: “Dancers are multi-faceted artists, they don’t just do dance, they can sing, they can act, they can paint, they can do so much but they are not given chances because they are always stereotyped, they are always slotted in one place, which is wrong. If you give dancers an opportunity, they can make magic. We just need those doors to open and I think they will slowly.”

On the work front, Nora is currently enjoying the success of her latest music video “Naach meri rani”.

She will be next seen in “Bhuj: The Pride of India”. (IANS)

"We've always known," says Debbie Staples, a great-great-granddaughter of Green's who heard the story from her grandmother. … "He made the whiskey, and he taught Jack Daniel. And people didn't believe it … it's hurtful. I don't know if it was because he was a Black man."

The findings from preliminary studies on possible stem cell-based Covid-19 treatments are frequently being exaggerated through press releases, social media and uncritical news media reports.

Amid the rush to find quick treatments for Covid-19 last year, the world saw a global race to find new stem cell-based treatments. Now, researchers report that such therapies were filled with violations of government regulations, inflated medical claims and distorted public communication. There are reports of patients suffering physical harm -- including blindness and death -- from unproven stem cell therapies.

"Efforts to rapidly develop therapeutic interventions should never occur at the expense of the ethical and scientific standards that are at the heart of responsible clinical research and innovation," said lead study author Laertis Ikonomou, associate professor of oral biology at University at Buffalo, New York. There are clinics offering unproven and unsafe "stem cell" therapies that promise to prevent Covid-19 by strengthening the immune system or improving overall health, the researchers noted in the paper published in the journal Stem Cell Reports.
