VIOLENCE on television was not an issue with which Sandhus concerned themselves much. Not until their own three-year-old daughter, Anushka, was grown up enough to comprehend what the blue screen beamed. It was then that the young couple began to notice how much trash they actually watched on the TV.

The coup de grace that did Punch in
R.K. Murthi
T
HAT summarises the philosophy of Punch, the British humour magazine that has downed the shutters with the issue of May 27. It has given up the ghost, if one may say. But the ghost of the Punch shall be around. Thanks to the advancement in the field of Information Technology, Punch will be available in its electronic avtar.

OME Friday evening each week, and the eyeballs of millions of viewers are focused on Zee TVís popular show Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai (JIKNH).

A.C. Tuli

S Indian Railways marks 150 years of existence, it is but natural to take a journey down memory lane and relive Indian cinemaís affair with trains. In fact, right from the advent of the talkies in India, there have been very few Hindi films, barring mythologicals, in which a train has not figured, even if for a few seconds.

Walk: Benefits are a step away

ALK and be healthy: walk and be happy, has sound health sense in it. The best way to lengthen our days is to walk steadily and with a purpose. The art of self-propulsion is the secret of life and vitality.
