Woman power
Too token a presence

There are only seven women in a House of 117. Though there has been plenty of talk on increasing women’s representation in the state legislatu- re, the number of women MLAs in Punjab since 1960 has never been in double digits. This time, too, only seven women have made it to the Vidhan Sabha though 55 contested the elections, reports Amrita Dhaliwal

Keeper of timeless melodies
Aditi Tandon
Jagjit
Singh’s music has survived many a season. It has seen the charm of spring and the dullness of autumn. In the end, it has returned to inspire generations with its rustic feel – the feel you get when you are close to the earth. It is this earthiness that makes Jagjit Singh what he is – the keeper of timeless melodies. And no matter how hard his adversaries try to write him off, he keeps coming back to weave magic and present himself in a fresh mould.

You can’t bend Beckham
E
ngland’s
soccer star David Beckham has revealed that the lowest point in his career was when his fans hung his effigies following England’s exit from the 1998 World Cup. Terming those as "dark days" of his career, he said that they still bring tears to his eyes.
