Nation's PRIDE - rivals' ENVY
Sachin is Sachin - Dhanraj is Dhanraj. I can never be a cricketer and he can never be an Olympian.
Environment

GREENING the wasteland
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, goes the adage. But what could be converted into a prospective bird sanctuary and reserve forest has been turned into a haunt of anti-social elements, due to official apathy. Not long ago the 20-acre ...
Health

Healthy food can control diabetes
Building healthier eating habits, monitoring blood glucose and lipid levels, and adding more activity to one's daily life style are the basics of diabetes control and weight management, the founder president of the Diabetes Foundation, Anuradha ...


Misplaced sympathy
The Visakhapatnam Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is `humane' to canine population and `not benign to citizens'. The growth percentage of canine population is 66 while that of humans is 1.6. `Family planning' to dogs and `rabies' to ...
Vaccinate all dogs
The article, `Stray dogs getting deadly', is timely in highlighting the menace. I am myself a dog lover, but one should ensure that every dog is given anti-rabies injection. The rotarian past governor, G.S.K. Arya, had a bitter experience of ...

Cinema

Ignoble eye candy
LUSTING FOR this one? Rein in your desire. Else it would lead to suffering. Sorry for this Buddhaspeak, but honestly, here is a film that promises a mountain but only succeeds in providing dollops of some quite ignorable and ignoble eye candy for ...
Hardly a payoff
HERE COMES another movie based on a short story by Philip Dick. In the hands of directors like Steven Spielberg (The Minority Report) or Ridley Scott (Blade Runner) the science fiction cult writer's stories took one on a wildly ...
Music

Chords & Notes
IF ALL the yesteryear's `thota' songs (remember Mokkajonna thotalo... , Masaka masaka cheekatilo mallethota venakala... , Vangathota kada vallu jaagratha... , etc) were a hit, then Gongura thota kada kaapu kaasa in this album should ...
Cuisine

Chinese delights
Chinese cuisine has got its own history like the country itself. Almost every province had its own cuisine meant for different strata of society like the Beijing cuisine, which was meant for officials; Huai-Yang cuisine, which was mainly for the ...

Entertainment

Metro cultural round-up
