Its a great comedy: Prakash Jha on JNU row

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

Film-maker Prakash Jha spoke of the ongoing debate about being national and anti-national, which has been happening in the country, as "great comedy".

The 63 year old helmer says that even before the "intolerance" debate in the country could settle down, the new issue has come up about (being) national and anti-national.

When asked about the ongoing row in JNU, Jha said,  "I think it's a comedy which is going on. I look at it as a huge comedy. In our country there was the whole debate about tolerance, intolerance... Before that act got over, now this comedy of (being) national and anti national (has come up)."

JNUSU president, Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested under sedition charges in connection with an event held on the New Delhi-based JNU campus, where anti-national slogans were raised allegedly. The film-maker, who has helmed socio-political films like "Gangaajal", "Apaharan" and "Satyagraha", says, "It's a society which is constantly churning its ideas and ideologies, that are coming up. We are still young as far as democracy is concerned. It is nice that people talk about it and come up with ideas and the way they are being used.I feel it's fantastic."

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)The cards say that this week you must focus on your health. The path to this is to reduce stress. Do not get hyper and do not react too fast if things do not go your way. Your ally in these times will be the Earth Sign Virgo who will cool you down. Stay away from Leos if you can, they will only encourage you to be more reactive. The Card of the week is Tarot Key no: XV; The Devil. Sensationalizing rather than understanding will cause problems for you. Understand this and you will be better off.
