alone in turning to more serious films towards the end of her career Top News “It is not impossible to defeat Ravana” declaims a resilient mother in Maatr a thriller about a revengeful mother that releases this Friday To take on the demon king “You only have to reawaken your inner Ram” The mother who says this as she undergoes rigorous training (and plotting) to serve Kill Bill-style justice to her daughter’s rapists is none other than the comeback star Raveena Tandon The seeds of Maatr Tandon’s latest film after a much-hyped cameo in the dud Bombay Velvet can be traced to the Nirbhaya gang rape case of 2012 Herself a mother of three daughters Tandon was just as shocked and numbed about the Delhi gang rape as the entire nation but as a mother her concerns about women’s safety was more than just about the culture of rape and abuse In an interview with Scrollin earlier this month she sounded equally disturbed at the male attitude in general especially politicians who make outrageous statements like “boys will be boys” and get away with it She was referring to SP leader Mulayam Singh Yadav’s callous commentary at a rally in 2014 in response to anti-rape laws Tandon is in favour of stringent laws against rape and like most Indians firmly believes that laws are easily flouted in this country because people are not scared of them In Maatr she told Scrollin it’s the message that counts “So even if a film like Maatr is not a huge commercial success the message it carries needs to be heard” Though for Tandon the box-office may not matter as much as the social message especially in the case of a well-intentioned film like Maatr you can’t discount its commercial consequences It’s up against another female-centric story this Friday – clashing with Sonakshi Sinha’s Noor a much lighter film featuring a much younger star Sonakshi Sinha is 29 representative of the change of guard in Bollywood Tandon is 42 an old guard in some sense To know how far Raveena Tandon has come from her roots (and her peak) in the 1990s Bollywood all you need to do is refer to her “inner Ram” dialogue from Maatr If the same film was made in the 90s the heydays of Tandon the line would have her channel her “inner Sita” By all accounts Maatr is not unchartered territory for the seasoned actress She’s been there before She has been experimental and has taken on complex roles in the past One of her most hard-hitting roles saw her as a low-caste girl (she compared her character to goddess Durga) who’s a victim of domestic abuse and marital rape Daman the 2001 film in question won her a much-deserved National Film Award for best actress The theme of a battered protagonist fighting for justice is also not something new in her filmography Audiences may recall Mridula (Tandon) in Pehchaan 2005 in which her college friend is suspected of being murdered by her family Mridula goes after the family to get justice for her late friend Fewer still may remember the flop Jaago co-starring Sanjay Kapoor and Manoj Bajpayee in which Tandon’s young daughter is raped in a local train The revengeful mother kills one of the rapists and is subsequently arrested Alongside Karisma Kapoor Kajol Aishwarya Rai Manisha Koirala Tabu and Juhi Chawla Tandon was one of the top draws of the 90s Like Karisma Kapoor she made for a successful pair with Govinda and the two ended up giving us a comic portfolio which began with the hilariously cheesy Dulhe Raja and culminated in Akhiyon Se Goli Maare a 2002 comedy named after a hit song from Dulhe Raja In Hindi cinema you can judge a star’s popularity by the number of chartbusters he/she has belted out Going purely by songs Tandon is either evergreen or ever-corny Her output makes you either nostalgic or creeps you out depending on your taste in cinema Her hits range from the sexy Sridevi-inspired Tip Tip Barsa Paani to Kisi Disco Mein Jaaye They continue to dominate the airwaves even today In Andaz Apna Apna a cult comedy that Hindi audiences still trip on she joined a sterling cast of Aamir Khan Salman Khan Karisma Kapoor Paresh Rawal and Shakti Kapoor in a case of mistaken identities It’s worth pointing out that her on-screen romance with Akshay Kumar (and the famous love affair off screen) in early 90s yielded a string of hits including Mohra But it was not all glamorous commercial stuff for Tandon Her filmography got diverse after she became interested in socially conscious cinema in the late 90s Films like Shool Satta and Aks proved that she could emote just as well as she could ‘shoot bullet with her eyes’ Onir’s Shab which was originally written keeping Tandon in mind and was slated to be her comeback vehicle reportedly contains one of her better performances At least if the director is to be believed Unfortunately the film remains unreleased and the much-acclaimed performance unseen Known as the Mast Mast girl thanks to the popular Viju Shah number Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast from Mohra Raveena Tandon was not alone in turning to more serious films towards the end of her career After a long spell in commercial cinema which bestows popularity fame and money upon its practitioners all

for a repo rate cut by the RBI has been growing more so in the last one month And it is coming not just from Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who has stated unequivocally that “interest rates now need to be moderated” Even the markets seem convinced that the RBI will reduce rates in its next monetary policy review on December 2 — if not earlier This expectation has been a major factor behind the Sensex and Nifty hitting all-time highs last week Moreover even the bond markets have priced in the probability of a policy rate cut happening sooner than one would have thought — since October 1 yields on the 10-year benchmark government paper have fallen from over 85 to around 82 per cent The RBI should obviously not give in to pressure from either North Block or the financial markets It cannot after all do something that is seen to erode its inflation-fighting credibility Having said that there are some realities it mustn’t ignore The first is international oil prices Since end-June the average cost of crude imported by Indian refiners has dropped from $ 110 to $ 805 a barrel Half of that decline took place after the RBI presented its last policy statement on September 30 The impact of lower petrol and diesel prices in altering the public’s inflationary expectations may not be small Second it’s not just oil; global prices of all commodities including farm have registered sharp dips Third the latest growth data — be it the output of eight “core” industries or the HSBC Purchasing Managers’ Indices for manufacturing and services — suggest a weakening of economic activity after a seemingly encouraging April-June quarter Fourth non-food credit growth has shown contraction this year The fact that many banks have brought down both deposit and lending rates despite the RBI not doing anything points to low demand for credit The resultant excess liquidity in the system is itself a sign of a slowdown and interest rates actually need to soften further The RBI in other words ought to aid rather than impede this process The coming week is crucial as we will see the government release key data on both consumer price inflation and industrial production growth If these reveal what one would suspect — a significant dip in both — the RBI should cut its repo rate by 25 basis points on December 2 This wouldn’t by any means compromise its anti-inflationary stance For all the

Padmavati Dwivedi of Compassionate Living (Source: Express photo by Oinam Anan) Related News Pradip Krishen’s engagement with trees has been long known In 2006 the 65-year-old’s Trees of Delhi (Dorling Kindersley) became a critically-acclaimed comprehensive guide to more than 250 species of trees in and around Delhi He has now collaborated with Delhi-based activist-environmentalist Padmavati Dwivedi of Compassionate Living an organisation that works in the areas of urban tree protection for a 25-page booklet titled Pradip Krishen’s List of 100 Most Suitable Trees for Delhi (NCR) (published by Compassionate Living Rs 50) A compact handbook it tells how to plant the “right” ones in a “mosaic of micro-habitats” for them to survive Excerpts from an interview: What draws you to Delhi and its trees Your research and books on trees have often pointed out the most common problem of growing them — that of extreme temperature Does that make the study more fascinating It’s only because I call Delhi ‘home’ This is where I spend most of my time and where I can study them Extreme temperatures is not something that’s limited to the Delhi region There are vast swathes of northern and central India where this occurs a nd these places too support dry deciduous natural forests that are not only beautiful and endangered they’re also full of adaptations and natural phenomena that make for fascinating study What are the challenges of identifying the ‘right’ trees for Delhi’s diverse soil zones Over time if you’re a careful observer one forms firm impressions about how trees cope with environmental conditions in any given place My list is quite simply a distillation of what I’ve learned and seen about which trees do well here in different sorts of sub-habitats I’ve also included a few trees not many that are not from Delhi but nearby places like those further south along the Aravallis They’ve been included not because they’ve done well in Delhi but because I have reasons to believe they will My confidence is based on planting them elsewhere in fairly similar conditions finding that they require environmental conditions similar to those in parts of the NCR Are there any new findings to your personal record of Delhi/NCR trees in recent years Perhaps some that are not in the 2006 book but have found mention in this publication I’ve subverted my own list I’m responsible for introducing something like 40 or so trees into Delhi that weren’t in my book This has mostly to do with my stint with the Aga Khan Foundation when I was working at Sundar Nursery in 2009 My brief was to create an arboretum of trees and plants I picked an assemblage of plants that were from neighbouring biomes — eastern Rajasthan western Madhya Pradesh and so on A large number of them were native Delhi plants that had disappeared as the city grew So to answer your question yes there’s a whole lot more trees that now live and prosper in Delhi since my book was written A rough guess would be about 50 or so species Examples are Firmiana colorata (pinj or the bonfire tree) Dolichandrone falcata (medsingi) Sterculia urens (kulu) Soymida febrifuga (rohan) Boswellia serrata (salai) All these are from Central India and/or the Aravallis a little further south of Delhi Does your emphasis on “planting right” mean that people often do it wrong What are the common mistakes people make while planting trees in Delhi/NCR Most people don’t think too much about ecological suitability when they’re choosing what to plant It’s more likely to be about the shape or colour of flowers or the shadiness of a canopy There are elementary practical reasons to factor in because if you’ve chosen ‘well’ your tree will need little or no looking once it’s established in its site I’ve written in my book about four different kinds of habitats or ecological zones in Delhi Two obvious examples are the dry stony Ridge and the well-watered banks of the river completely different in their soil moisture regimes A thirsty tree (from wetter places) that people in Delhi are fond of planting on the other hand the kadamb (Neolamarckia cadamba) for instance or the Michelia champaca (champak) and the southern Magnolia are not suited to Delhi’s moisture regime and I never recommend that people should plant them here Or one that needs lots of nutrients will require to be looked after all the time Unfortunately nurseries in Delhi do not think about or promote sustainability They go after fads They pander to peoples’ ignorance And this is a pity because they could play such an important role in encouraging people to get to know and recognise what’s best suited to their soil and environment Are you working on any project at the moment I’m Series Editor for a longish list of
