The overlooked side of Reecha Sharma -Chhakka Panja controversy

November 30, 2017 13:37 PM

Reecha Sharma didn't have to comment like she has been cheated or double-crossed by the viewers. Her movie ‘Aadha Love’ didn’t work because if failed in entertainment quotient or impressing the critics. A movie made on ill-practiced ancient social values ‘Jhola’ was liked and loved by masses. Similarly, ‘Soongava’ represented women in Nepal like never before. It was critically acclaimed too.

Lies, damn lies, and sports in manifestos!

"Sport has the power to change the world; it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sports can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than a government in breaking down racial barriers,”

Football match that broke my heart

August 31, 2017 17:23 PM

In age-level sports, results should be a secondary target. The intent, tactical approach and proper implementation of plans should unequivocally be made the first priority. A magic moment by a particularly gifted player can win a game or two but proper implementation of game-plan, supported by right players at the right positions, will bring more consistent results. On a continuation, a team can be molded into a winning machine over the time. A system will be created that will promote and acquire players according to the vacated position and provide for the senior teams.

Change in genre occurs when the audience says, "That's too infantile a form of what we believe. Show us something more complicated,” as per Leo Braudy in his book ‘The World in a Frame: What We See in Films’.
