first_imgWith just nine days and counting until the Donegal International Rally, an appeal has been launched to get marshals to help out with the event.The running of this rally is a matter of teamwork allied to the efforts of many hundreds of volunteer officials and marshals, plus the support of all the community.

What is the story behind the name Ballad Of Rustom?A. This film is about those people who hail from small towns and seem very ordinary, but have extraordinary talent. It’s a ballad because the story is set to music.Q. Is the director an androgynous concept for you?A. The director is an individual. It’s not about being male or female. Most characters in my film are men. As an artist, I believe a human being encompasses a whole range of ideas and for me it’s irrelevant to debate the man-woman angle.Q. Why did you choose filmmaking as a medium of expression?A. No other art form comes as close as cinema does in portraying the human experience. It’s a beautiful medium.Q. Do you care for distinctions between mainstream and alternative cinema?A. There should be no boundaries or labels. It’s all about having an inclusive film culture in India. We should all aspire for original, imaginative work.Q. Why did you experiment with medium and technology for Ballad Of Rustom?A. I shot my film on 35mm cinemascope with sync (live) sound. It was an intentional aesthetic choice for I love 35mm film and I am old school when it comes to making movies.Health kickGreat news. Eating 1.4 ounces of dark chocolate every day lowers stress levels. What’s more, it’s rich in compounds like theobromine. But be sure the bar you choose has at least 70 per cent cocoa and very little fat.advertisementPunk politicsThese masked vigilantes are not promoting a superhero flick. They are the real deal. For thousands of women in post-Putin Russia, the Pussy Riot, a collective of left-wing feminists, are a symbol against the Kremlin and it’s dictatorial policies. The recent arrest of three members for desecrating an orthodox church with a “punk prayer” against the authorities has sparked widespread international criticism for Putin. Is he ready to face the music?What’s hotSalman KhanThe man with the golden touch is back to doing what he does best-breaking his own records.Edgy cuts While we don’t care much for the straw blonde colouring, this ‘coming of age’ look is a definite head-turner.What’s notRumour mongering Stop the hate. Stop the discrimination. Embrace the big society idea.Virgin again From moral policing to ridiculous advertising, women are targets everywhere.The travel diaries: Miss perfect VS The couch surferWill have a steam-ironed outfit for every meal. She doesn’t care much for back packs or travelling light.She’s the kind who’ll enjoy a pool by getting a lobster-red tan rather than actually getting into the water. Also, sand in her manicured toenails is a strict no-no.She drinks expensive cocktails embellished with little fruity umbrellas.Only travels by yacht, private jet or a chauffeurdriven car. She never goes anywhere without a reservation.Not good with local food, language or cultural diplomacy. She would rather just be safe than sorry.Can go without a clean load of clothes for weeks. She usually isn’t a stickler for hygiene.She prefers a shack to a hotel room. Doesn’ mind getting dirty, camping out under the stars and probably hasn’t run a comb through her hair in a while.Drinks local brew-basically anything that’s cheaper than bottled water.Hitchhikes and uses public transport around a new city. When all else fails, she walks.Depends on the goodwill of locals. She charms them with her knowledge of their culture, their cuisine and picks up the local dialect quickly.Make a memoryPhotographs are often the only way you remember all the great times you had on vacation. Different types of breaks need different ammo. Pick your gear carefully.Adventure: It’s probably best to take a pocket-sized digital camera for this trip. The bigger the camera, the heavier it will be while climbing a steep slope.Beach/Spa vacation: Barring an inadvertent encounter with the sea, a relaxing beach vacation is the perfect time to let your creative juices flow. It’s a great opportunity to experiment with the professional DSLR you bought yourself on your last birthday.Tip: Take a few test shots at home before you leave. Get comfortable with the flash and lighting options and make sure you pack enough extendable memory. You don’t want to fumble with these tiny details as the great moments of your life pass you by.advertisementVacation watchTry an adventure sport. Relaxation is all well and good, but to get your blood pumping and your adrenaline running is important too. Don’t just snooze through your next break, find a new experience.Switch off. No Blackberries, no Facebook, no Twitter, no texting. Ban technology and if you must use your iPhone at all, it should be to locate the closest local attraction.Be your own guide. All you get on pre-arranged tour guides is a busload of old people and souvenirs that burn a hole in your pocket. Draw out your own travel plan and make sure you experience a city by walking its streets.Don’t be shy. Of eating, of talking and letting yourself go. Be careful of tricksters and pick-pockets but don’t be afraid of trying new things on vacation, local food and wine being on top of that list.Keep a journal. A daily log of what you did, where you went and what you saw. This way, you can always re-visit your vacation without forgetting the little details.Fresh stock (New Releases)Rabbit Rap By Musharraf Ali Farooqui and Michelle FarooquiMidsummer Station By Owl CityThe Expendables 2 Starring Sly Stallonelast_img read more
