Actress Manjari Fadnis, who essays the protagonist in the short film “The Cot”, says it addresses problems and situations that many people in India experience.

“The Cot” is a humorous story that revolves around the relationship of a newlywed couple and their dilemma of not being able to consummate their marriage as their bed makes a noise every time they try to get intimate.

Manjari told IANS over the phone: “The story of the short film is something that so many people in India live through or experience. When they are living with their in-laws, in a joint family… Especially in small families.

“There are so many issues… Consummating a marriage becomes stressful because you don’t know who is outside, somebody would be hearing… This happens so much. It is a humorously written script of the same.”

However, Majari says when the film was being made, there was no such message that was meant to be given out in an outline.

Manjari has also worked in the short film “Khamakha” in 2016.

For the BJP-led Central government battling opposition criticism over a sluggish economy, the latest report of the Ipsos ‘What Worries the World’ monthly survey has good news as well as bad. 58 per cent of urban Indian respondents, in January, believed that India is heading in the right direction, unlike global citizens, of whom at least 61 per cent believe their country is on the wrong track.

However the bad news for the BJP is that the survey results for January show an 11 percent drop in optimism levels from December, when no less than 69 percent of urban Indians polled believed that India is moving in the right direction.

“Employment generation needs to be the top priority of the government, as it is reaching alarming proportions, among worry levels of urban Indians. Likewise, law & order and incidents of violence need to be tackled with a firm hand,” said Amit Adarkar, CEO, Ipsos India.

Urban Indians continue to list joblessness or unemployment, crime and violence, and financial and political corruption as their top concerns. In January, worries centred around financial and political corruption saw a slight dip of 2 per cent over the previous month, while concerns over joblessness, and crime and violence zoomed up by 11 per cent and 7 per cent, respectively.

“Urban Indians continue to be optimistic and have faith in the abilities of the administrators, steering the country. Government should allay their worries by taking concrete steps. Some of the initiatives announced in the Union Budget, around Education & Skills under ‘Aspirational India’ theme, are likely to a have a positive impact, in the long term. However, we need some immediate term measures, to improve outlook,” Adarkar added.
