The distress call of mountains


Leaving aside tourists, pilgrims and research teams, trekkers visiting the Himalayas every year alone add up to more than 1 lakh and each year their number continues to rise. Undoubtedly, the lure of these divine but dangerous, beautiful but brutal, fragile but fierce mountains is hard to resist. But, ironically, itís this grandeur and ethereal beauty which is fast becoming its bane, says Gitanjali Sharma.


The distress call of mountains

It is time for the Sikhs to introspect
Himmat Singh Gill
T
HE Sikhs are but young by birth when compared to other world religions and masses. Outgoing, virile and sure of themselves, they have, in spite of their fewer numbers on the population charts, made their mark in every field connected with Indian society.

 

"On the screen only your hard work shows"
Rajneesh Kumar Verma
H
E strikes one at first glance as a very shy person, a loner. But the intense look in his eyes says it all. He is full of ambition and the shyness is something he has already left behind in his quest for his goal.

A taste of Norwegian cinema
Ervell E. Menezes
W
HAT is Norwegian cinema like? Except for rare International Film Festival of India (IFFI) screenings we in India are hardly exposed to it. Is it as cold as the country? Not really. May be the cold makes them more industrious but they have social and emotional problems like us and the recent Norwegian film festival provided us with an insight into their way of life.
