There is so much goodness in Garm Hava, says Aseem Chhabra/ Rediff.com There are few films that speak about the India that our founding fathers wanted to build and the ordinary citizens whose lives shaped the country’s destiny.  Among those films MS Sathyu’s Garm Hava stands tall.  Based on a short story by Ismat Chughtai, a master at capturing Muslim lives in her stories, and a screenplay by Kaifi Azmi and Shama Zaidi, the 1974 film (yes, it is 40 years old) is an ...

More than laws, what helps individuals, especially young people, to cope with their struggles is to have role models -- movie and television stars, musicians, sports figures and writers. In that regard Cook’s statement is of major significance, especially given Apple’s recognition as a global brand, says Aseem Chhabra. This weekend, somewhere in India, or Uganda or Texas for that matter, a 15-year-old teenager is sitting working on his Mac, talking on his iPhone, feeling slightly ...
