Little wonders
They show exceptional abilities at an early age. They are subjects of envy as well as adulation. Priyanka Singh delves into the intriguing world of prodigies and finds out that these little geniuses require sensitive nurturing and the right kind of push. Excessive pressure could be harmful to their development.

Known as super kids, beautiful freaks, miracles of nature, or more cynically, famous flameouts, child prodigies intrigue the ordinary just as they tease scientists to decode the mystery surrounding their brain development.

Sexed-up music videos
Vishal Sharma on how explicit remixes impact the lifestyle of the young

They offer a heady cocktail of doctored music, funky western tunes and dollops of flesh. They may be a rage with the fun-loving and tuned-in Gen-Xers, but these music videos whip up not-too-melodic reactions from those who consider this ‘crazy musical onslaught’ a threat to everything called Indian.
