Barry John strikes a pose with children at the Chitkara International School Nothing theatrical
Drama somehow finds its way into Barry John's school of thought, just as it has into his life; everything he does and who he is. "I'm too much of a nautankiwala," one of the reasons he's never considered films. "I've never enjoyed it. Just never felt comfortable with the medium." No wonder films never happened and theatre never suffered.

The real touch
Disillusionment… at some stage in life, the word slips to the centrestage. While some dabble with it, some plunge into philosophical notes; a self-willed actor like Shilpa Shukla moves on when she finds it is like a pit-stop where she was able to find her strength. The Bindya Naayak of Chak De India is not bogged down by the requisites of stardom. All set for her release BA Pass, Shilpa talks about her characters in various films, which reflect her inner journey.

All stuffed up!
Tacos have been a perennial favourite for their crisp taste and when they are combined with veggies they become wholesome and yummy. The beauty lies in the fact that the variety of vegetables that can be stuffed is large and we can experiment depending on what is available. Try this at home and enjoy the delight.
