Colon Cancer Prevention Program Available Provincewide

first_imgA program that prevents colon cancer and finds it early when treatment is most effective is now available provincewide. All Nova Scotians between the ages of 50 and 74 will now have access to a home screening kit for the prevention and early detection of colon cancer, following the launch of the Colon Cancer Cancer Prevention Program today, March 25, to include Capital Health. The program began two years ago. “This program is an important part of the province’s commitment to providing better care sooner,” said MLA Leonard Preyra, on behalf of Health and Wellness Minister Maureen MacDonald. “This is an exciting day as Nova Scotians in every region will now have access to the screening tools that play a key role in preventing, detecting and treating colon cancer early.” About 300 new cases of colon cancer are expected to be diagnosed in Capital Health this year and about 800 people will be diagnosed provincewide. Colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in Nova Scotia. Ed Branton of Martin’s River, Lunenburg Co., was among the first to receive an invitation to participate in the program. Initially, he decided not to take part because he felt good and had no symptoms. But he changed his mind and did the test. It was easy to do. It took all of 10 minutes and that 10 minutes probably saved my life,” Mr. Branton said. “The home screening test revealed blood in my stool and the need for a follow-up colonoscopy. The colonoscopy found and removed two polyps, which contained an aggressive form of cancer. But, it was found so early, I didn’t need any further treatment. “My advice to people; when you receive your kit in the mail, take 10 minutes and do the test, even if you are feeling fine. It could save your life.” People who live in the area served by Capital Health will begin receiving information on the program next week, followed by a home screening kit with directions in English and French. The home screening test is easy to use. It tests for small amounts of blood in the stool, which may be a sign of growths in the colon. “Health is a shared responsibility. Government, health planners and providers have a responsibility to create programs and services to build healthy communities, and people who live and work in those communities have to do their part,” said Chris Power, CEO of Capital Health. “This program provides people with easy access to tools they need. I urge people to do the test. Help reduce the incidence of colon cancer and make our communities and our province healthier.” “Colon cancer can be prevented if people are screened regularly before there are any signs of disease,” said Dr. Bernard Badley, medical director, Colon Cancer Prevention Program. “The program saves lives and improves the outcome of those diagnosed with colon cancer at an early stage when treatment is most effective. “Although still in its early stages, the program already has made a difference, identifying 21 people with cancer and 229 Nova Scotians with pre-cancerous growths. Because it will save health dollars, this program is win-win for government and for Nova Scotia taxpayers.” More often than not, there are no warning signs of colon cancer in the early stages when it is most treatable and 80 per cent of people who get the disease have no family history of it. The greatest risk factor for colon cancer is age. Nova Scotians, between the ages of 50 and 74, are encouraged to be tested regularly.

Busy Philipps To Host Uplift Family Services 7th Annual Norma Jean Gala

first_imgThe generosity of Hollywood will once again be on display this May 19, 2018 as the community comes together to celebrate Uplift Family Services at Hollygrove’s 7th Annual Norma Jean Gala, presented by Houlihan Lokey, under the stars at the beautiful Hollygrove campus against the backdrop of the Hollywood sign, an event to benefit the agency’s behavioral and mental health programs that provide help and hope to more than 1,200 at-risk children and their families in the Hollywood and South Los Angeles communities.This year the gala proudly honors the agency’s friends and champions Ike Barinholtz and wife Erica Hanson with the Ambassador of Children Award, and will also bestow the agency’s first-ever Volunteer of the Year Award to CAA’s Chris Andrews. Ike and Erica were selected to receive this honor because they, through deed and example, embody the values of the organization’s mission, share its passion to strengthen and support children in crisis, and advocate for those most in need. Long-time friend Colin Hanks is set to present Barinholtz and Hanson with their award. Andrews, who has been an ongoing volunteer and supporter of the agency for several years by regularly tutoring and mentoring kids in the agency’s after school program, is being singled out for the impact he has made and the example he sets for others. Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominated actor Edgar Ramirez will present to Andrews.“I am so honored to be recognized by Uplift Family Services at Hollygrove in this way and am in awe of what they do to support children and families in need,” said Barinholtz recently. “My wife and I strongly believe how important it is to provide each and every child with the tools they need to succeed. We are thrilled to be involved with this organization that fights so fiercely for this cause, and are looking forward to a wonderful evening of celebrating their work.”Notes Andrews, “I have long wanted to make a tangible difference in the lives of others, and am so grateful to have the opportunity to be involved with an organization like Hollygrove. I am so impressed by the work they do with the children and families they serve, and am honored to be a part of creating some of that positive impact.”“We are so excited and proud to have our friends Ike, Erica and Chris as our honorees this year,” says Elena Judd, Uplift Family Services’ Regional Executive Director. “They each in their own ways are so committed to helping those who exist on the margins of our society, especially children, and serving as examples to others. I’m so thankful for their ongoing support of our work to do whatever it takes to heal the child – and strengthen the whole family.”Ike Barinholtz is quickly becoming one of the most sought after comedians, writers and actors in the comedy world. He is well known for starring on TV’s The Mindy Project as well as the hit films Suicide Squad, Neighbors with Seth Rogen, Snatched with Amy Schumer, and Sisters with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. He currently can be seen in Universal’s Blockers alongside John Cena and Leslie Mann, and he is currently in post-production on his new film The Oath which he wrote, directed and stars in alongside John Cho and Tiffany Haddish. The first film he co-wrote, the hilarious comedy Central Intelligence, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart, was a runaway hit. Erica Hanson is a partner at PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Los Angeles; she and Ike have been married since 2009 and have three children.Chris Andrews is a motion picture talent agent at Creative Artists Agency (CAA). Andrews works in the Los Angeles office and represents many of the world’s leading actors — including Daniel Craig, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Ben Kingsley, Emily Blunt, Jon Hamm, Ian McKellen, Saoirse Ronan, Edgar Ramirez and Steve Coogan. In addition to his commitment to Hollygrove, Andrews also serves on the board of the USC School of the Dramatic Arts.About the Norma Jean Gala: its namesake is the Hollygrove campus’ most famous alumni — Norma Jean Baker, who benefitted from the agency’s care as a child before she ultimately came to be known as the international icon Marilyn Monroe. Now in its 7th year, the gala, which will once again have Busy Philipps as MC, has attracted a host of notable individuals, celebrities and organizations who come together one evening each year to honor and celebrate the work of Uplift Family Services at Hollygrove and spirit of “Norma Jean”, including: Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka, Matt Bomer, Rob Reiner, Busy Philipps, Colin Hanks, Cobie Smulders, Tom Arnold, Diane Ladd, George Lopez, Lori Laughlin, Ian Ziering and many others.Proceeds from the Norma Jean Gala support Uplift Family Services at Hollygrove’s unique and effective privately-funded therapeutic afterschool, summer and parent support programs that help create stability, strengthen the family and provide a greater chance of success for the child to become productive and thrive. In addition to underwriting support from presenting sponsor Houlihan Lokey, major gala sponsors include: RETS Associates, Bryant-Reichling Real Estate, CB Technologies, COMPASS Hollywood, the Johnny Carson Foundation, UTA and Paramount Studios.For more information, visit the gala website here.last_img read more

Basic pay for engineers increases by 2

first_imgBasic median pay for professional engineers has increased by 2% year on year, according to research by the manufacturers’ organisation, EEF.Its Professionals pay benchmark report, which surveyed 241 UK organisations to collect salary data for 5,986 managers and engineers, also found that average pay for engineering graduates has increased by 4% since 2015.The research also found:Engineering graduates now earn £28,000 a year on average, compared to £26,890 in 2015.Average annual pay for professional engineers now stands at £32,699, and senior engineers can expect to earn £41,800 a year.Basic median pay for senior research and development engineers has increased by 28% between 2015 and 2016 to reach £37,109 a year.Pay levels for engineers are highest in the south east, where professionals take home £40,000 a year on average.The lowest earning region in the UK is the south west, where the median basic pay for engineers is £36,000.Tim Thomas (pictured), director of employment and skills policy at EEF, said: “Engineering skills are in high demand and short supply, which is why they continue to command a premium and why employers are prepared to pay it.“Offering an attractive salary remains the first line of defence for firms fiercely competing to attract and retain skilled workers vital to their business. It’s a key factor behind our sector’s reputation for offering well-paid, sustainable careers, but it also reinforces the need for employers to be fully aware of industry pay rates so that they can benchmark and position themselves accordingly.”last_img read more

Ukraine warns threat of fullscale war with Russia

first_imgA Russia`s FSB security service officer escorts a detained Ukrainian sailor to a courthouse in Simferopol, Crimea, on 27 November. Photo: AFPUkrainian president Petro Poroshenko on Tuesday warned of the threat of “full-scale war” and said Russia had sharply increased its military presence on their shared border as tensions escalate between the ex-Soviet neighbours.The crisis also threatened growing diplomatic fallout with US president Donald Trump warning that he may cancel a long-awaited summit with Russia’s Vladimir Putin.Trump is scheduled to meet Putin at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires at the end of this week, but he told The Washington Post that it would depend on the results of a report about the incident being prepared by his national security advisers.”Maybe I won’t have the meeting. Maybe I won’t even have the meeting,” he said.In Ukraine, Poroshenko warned that the clash at sea could herald more drastic developments in the simmering Ukraine-Russia military standoff.”I don’t want anyone to think this is fun and games. Ukraine is under threat of full-scale war with Russia,” the president said in an interview with national television.The number of Russian units deployed along the Ukraine-Russian border has “grown dramatically” while the number of Russian tanks has tripled, Poroshenko said, citing intelligence reports but giving no precise timescale for the buildup.He spoke after Russian forces seized three of Kiev’s ships off the coast of Crimea on Sunday and captured 24 Ukrainian sailors.On Tuesday, a court in Simferopol, the main city in Russian-annexed Crimea, ordered 12 of the sailors to be held in pre-trial detention for two months. Three hospitalised sailors were also formally detained for two months. The rest are to appear in court on Wednesday.The move stoked already high tensions between Moscow and Kiev, as Russia continues to accuse the sailors of crossing illegally into Russian waters and of ignoring warnings from its border guards.Kiev has demanded the release of the sailors and urged Western allies to impose further sanctions on Moscow.The US State Department on Tuesday termed Russia’s actions “a dangerous escalation” and said Washington wants to see “our European allies doing more to assist Ukraine.”Putin warns of ‘reckless actsThe incident was the first major confrontation at sea in the long-running conflict pitting Ukraine against Moscow and Russian-backed separatists in the country’s east.It has raised fears of a wider escalation — in a conflict that has killed more than 10,000 people since 2014 — and prompted international calls for restraint.Putin on Tuesday warned Ukraine against any “reckless acts” after Kiev declared martial law in response to Moscow’s seizure of the navy vessels.The Ukrainian parliament late on Monday voted in favour of Poroshenko’s request for the introduction of martial law in border areas for 30 days.This gives Ukrainian authorities the power to mobilise citizens with military experience, regulate the media and restrict public rallies in affected areas.In a phone conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel Tuesday, Putin expressed “serious concern” over its introduction.He said he hoped Berlin could intervene with Ukrainian authorities “to dissuade them from further reckless acts”.Moscow has accused Kiev of planning Sunday’s confrontation as a provocation aimed at drumming up support for Poroshenko ahead of elections next year and convincing Western governments to impose further sanctions on Russia.Putin said Kiev’s actions were “clearly taken in view of the election campaign in Ukraine”.Sunday’s incident has been playing out on Russian and Ukrainian television screens, with dramatic footage of Russian ships chasing down a Ukrainian tugboat that was trying to pass through the Kerch Strait from the Black Sea into the Sea of Azov.Sailors on Russian TVRussian state television late on Monday aired footage of some of the captured sailors being questioned by Moscow’s security services.One of them is heard saying “the actions of the Ukrainian armed vessels in the Kerch Strait had a provocatory character” — parroting the version of events put forward by Russian authorities.Ukraine’s naval commander, Igor Voronchenko, said the sailors were pressured into giving false evidence.”I know these sailors, they were always professional. What they are saying now is not true,” he told Ukrainian media.Western governments have rallied behind Kiev in the dispute, accusing Russia of illegally blocking access to the Sea of Azov and of taking military action without justification.The European Union, Britain, Canada, France, Germany and others expressed support for Kiev on Monday, in statements pro-Kremlin newspaper Izvestia denounced as “predictably anti-Russian”.The foreign minister of Austria, which holds the rotating EU presidency, said Tuesday that the bloc will next month consider further sanctions against Moscow over the flare-up.”Everything depends on the accounts of events and the actions of both sides. But it will need to be reviewed,” Karin Kneissl told reporters.UN chief Antonio Guterres on Tuesday called for “maximum restraint,” urging both sides “to take steps without delay to contain this incident and reduce tensions”.last_img

Govt looks at taxes dividends to meet deficit target

first_imgGovernment is likely to step up efforts to mop up additional resources by hiking duties and seeking higher dividends from PSUs to make up for the anticipated shortfall in disinvestment and direct tax proceeds in its bid to meet the fiscal deficit target.The Finance Ministry had last week raised excise duty on petrol by Rs 1.60 per litre and the same on diesel by 40 paise, which is expected to fetch the exchequer an additional revenue of about Rs 3,200 crore during the rest of the fiscal. This will help the government in partly meeting the shortfall in disinvestment and direct tax realisation. Also Read – Punjab & Sind Bank cuts MCLR by up to 20 basis pointsDue to volatile market conditions, the disinvestment department could garner Rs 12,600 crore so far this fiscal. It has a target of Rs 69,500 crore to be garnered from minority stake sale in PSUs as well as strategic stake sale. With seven months of the current fiscal already over, the Department of Disinvestment has already indicated to the Finance Ministry that it would not be possible to meet the ambitious target.As regards dividend, the government is pushing blue-chip PSUs to either step up their capex or pay higher dividends and not sit on cash pile. Also Read – ‘The great gold bull market has begun’The government had budgeted to collect Rs 36,174 crore by way of dividend from the public sector enterprises, higher than last year’s realisation of Rs 28,423 crore. It has already received a dividend of Rs 65,896 crore from RBI, which is higher than this year’s budget projection of Rs 64,477 crore.Making up for the shortfall in disinvestment through other sources is essential for meeting the fiscal deficit target of 3.9 per cent of GDP.last_img read more

JU to study chances of volcanotriggered tsunami

first_imgKolkata: The Centre for Disaster Preparedness and Management of Jadavpur University is planning to take up awareness measures on the possibility of a tsunami wreck following a volcanic eruption.The move comes after the death of more than 350 people in a tsunami caused after an earthquake in Indonesia, a volcanically active country, in December 2018. There were no warning signs of such a disaster. “We have no knowledge about the quantum of a volcanic eruption, which can bring about a tsunami. We will collect information in this regard through internet or by coordinating with the national and international universities with whom we have collaborations. This will enable us to make our students and the common people more aware and prepare in the face of such a disaster,” said Gupinath Bhandari of civil engineering department of JU, who is in charge of the Centre for Disaster Preparedness and Management college wing. Also Read – 3 injured, flight, train services hit as rains lash BengalAfter the devastating tsunami at the Andaman & Nicobar Islands following an earthquake, we started delving deeper into the quantum of a submarine tremor whose after-effect could be a tsunami. A detailed study in this regard made us aware that if the intensity of an earthquake is over 6.3 on the Richter scale, there are chances of a tsunami and if the intensity is over 7.5 on the Richter scale, then the damage of the disaster becomes much greater. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed”Following this gain of knowledge we have been conducting projects and awareness campaigns and even done some in coordination with Bangladesh. We want to do the same regarding the possibility of a tsunami occurrence after a volcanic eruption. For this, we have to gain knowledge on whether there is any quantum calculation of an eruption that can bring a tsunami as an aftermath,” Bhandari said. The deadly tsunami in Indonesia had killed 373 people and left several trapped in the rubble after strings of buildings collapsed as the tsunami struck almost without any warning. The Ring of Fire where such phenomena occur stretches from Sunda Strait to North America. “It is true that volcano-triggered tsunamis can take place only around the Ring of Fire but as we are working in the area of disaster preparedness, early warning dissemination of knowledge is essential,” Bhandari added.last_img read more

Only half of lifeguard towers in Paphos and Limassol manned as summer

first_imgUnjustified delays in the hiring of Limassol and Paphos lifeguards have left half of the towers unmanned and beachgoers unprotected, the association of lifeguards said on Thursday.According to the president of the association, Andreas Isihiou, in line with the national lifeguard scheme ‘Salamis’, all 14 towers in Limassol and 20 in Paphos should have been fully staffed since April 1 but currently only seven are operating in both districts.April is the beginning of the summer tourism season. Only the Larnaca lifeguard towers which are less in number are fully staffed, Isihiou said.“Unfortunately, this year there is an unjustified delay in the hiring of lifeguards,” Isihiou said, noting that the responsibility lay with the interior ministry and local authorities, whose labour offices have yet to send out a list of candidates who must be interviewed and then hired.“Who will take responsibility for a drowning?” Isihou asked, adding that there are already bathers at the beaches, who will only increase in number as the summer draws nearer.Isihiou said this was the first time that there has been such a long delay in the hiring of lifeguards, and he called for a timely resolution of the matter before an accident occurs.The Limassol district officer Marios Alexandrou said that the district has already set up an interview committee and is ready to hire the necessary staff – 30 in total – but said that it is still waiting on the labour office to send the list of possible candidates.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.

of three confirmed to have had chronic wasting disease the first cases known in the wild outside North America Norwegian Institute for Nature Research Norway plans to exterminate a large reindeer herd to stop a fatal infectious brain disease By Erik StokstadApr 3 2017 5:30 PM A year after a deadly and highly contagious wildlife disease surfaced in Norway the country is taking action Chronic wasting disease (CWD) caused by misfolded proteins called prions has already ravaged deer and elk in North America costing rural economies millions in lost revenue from hunting Its presence in Norway’s reindeer and moose—the first cases in Europe—is “a very serious situation for the environment and for our culture and traditions” says Bjrnar Ytrehus a veterinary researcher at the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research in Trondheim Last week Norway’s minister of agriculture and food gave the green light for hunters to kill off the entire herd in which three infected individuals were found about 2000 reindeer or nearly 6% of the country’s wild population “We have to take action now” says Karen Johanne Baalsrud director of plant and animal health at the Norwegian Food Safety Authority in Oslo The deer’s habitat will be quarantined for at least 5 years to prevent reinfection The odds of a successful eradication experts say will depend largely on how long CWD has been present in Norway CWD discovered in 1967 has been found in 24 US states and two Canadian provinces and it has been spread in part by shipments of infected animals Many species of cervids are susceptible including elk moose and several kinds of deer Infected animals typically begin showing symptoms such as weight loss lethargy and drooling 2 to 3 years after infection and then die within months In Wyoming where CWD has been endemic for decades up to 40% of some herds are infected and white-tailed deer populations are declining by 10% a year CWD is very contagious: Prions spread easily through saliva urine and feces and can linger in the environment for years which suggests that feeding stations and salt licks are hot spots of infection Once the disease has become firmly established environmental contamination makes eradication very hard says Christina Sigurdson a prion researcher at the University of California San Diego “It hasn’t been shown so far to be possible” she says There’s no evidence that humans can get sick from eating infected deer but it is not recommended (Mad cow disease also caused by prions can infect people who eat contaminated meat and has caused more than 200 deaths so far) Norway’s first CWD case was detected by chance after wildlife biologists working in the rugged mountains of Nordfjella found a sick young reindeer on 15 March 2016 After its death tests at the Norwegian Veterinary Institute (NVI) in Oslo pointed to CWD “I couldn’t believe it” says NVI prion researcher Sylvie Benestad But international reference labs confirmed her diagnosis The prions resemble those found in North American deer Benestad and her colleagues have found How the disease got to Norway is a mystery Prions may have arrived in deer urine which is bottled in the United States and sold as a lure or perhaps they hitched a ride on hiking boots or hunting gear But prion diseases can also start spontaneously after proteins begin to misfold in a single individual and Benestad’s hunch is that this is a more likely scenario After the initial discovery Norwegian officials began looking for other cases A local hunter found two moose with CWD near the town of Selbu 40 kilometers southeast of Trondheim (see map) in May 2016 During last fall’s hunting season thousands of hunters and other volunteers collected about 8000 brain samples from all over the country turning up two more cases of infected reindeer near Nordfjella The cases in Nordfjella and Selbu are likely not linked says Benestad as the reindeer and moose have different types of prions Hot zone Reindeer will be slaughtered in Nordfjella Norway; no culling is recommended for the area near Trondheim where two moose with chronic wasting disease have been found CREDITS: (GRAPHIC) G GRULLN/SCIENCE; (DATA) NORWEGIAN VETERINARY INSTITUTE/NORWEGIAN ENVIRONMENT AGENCY An advisory panel convened by the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety last week suggested different approaches for the two locations Around Selbu it recommended increased surveillance but no culling of moose yet The two infected moose were older animals suggesting that these were cases of spontaneous disease which are less likely to be infectious (The reason why: In spontaneous cases of prion disease such as in sheep prions are only found in the brain) And even even if the unusual prions in moose are contagious the solitary nature of these animals lowers the chances of transmission Reindeer however are the most gregarious of cervids and the three sick individuals in Nordfjella could easily have spread prions Culling the entire herd would be “drastic” the panel acknowledged but should be attempted as soon as possible The slaughter to start in August will be carried out by amateur hunters who can eat the meat if prion tests come back negative Professional sharpshooters will be used to find any elusive survivors “We will do whatever it takes” says Erik Lund a senior wildlife adviser at the Norwegian Environment Agency in Trondheim Until the operation begins wildlife rangers are patrolling to prevent animals from leaving or entering the herd’s 2000-square-kilometer habitat The area is ringed by paved roads which reindeer don’t like to cross but if any do the rangers have orders to track down and kill them Repopulation won’t begin until at least 2022 Benestad says testing old feces may be a way to check whether prions lingering in the environment have degraded Based on the prevalence in Nordfjella—estimated at 1%—Lund guesses that CWD may have been present for only 5 to 7 years which could mean contamination is minimal “There’s a good chance they can solve the problem” says wildlife ecologist Michael Samuel of the University of Wisconsin in Madison Quick response has been shown to work before: In 2005 routine testing revealed CWD on two deer farms in central New York Strict regulations prevented the disease from spreading The state has seen no cases since But it’s also possible that CWD is lurking elsewhere in Norway the panel noted The agencies will collect another 20000 samples in the coming hunting season and they plan to continue monitoring for years to come The specter of CWD has also alarmed the European Food Safety Authority which released a report in January recommending that seven nearby countries all begin 3-year sampling programs Clarification 4 April 420 pm: The

in his films and his fascination with boys on the throes of manhood Brahman Naman comes almost four years after Tasher Desh (2012) your last film to get a theatrical release In between you co-directed Ludo but that didn’t get a mainstream release…Hopefully this question will become redundant in a few years Why do you think films are films only if they release in theatres Tasher Desh which is only my second film to release in theatres was supposed to be an experiment Making films for exhibition in theatres goes against the very grain of my filmmaking If I were to make films with that purpose I will have to make a series of compromises which is not acceptable to me I will have to keep the producers happy give in to the distributor’s demand keep in mind the whims and fancies of the censor board Today there are so many avenues open for filmmakers Gandu has been seen by half of India without a theatre release So to answer your question I don’t let a theatre release decide the fate of my film Is that why you chose a digital platform like Netflix If you visit the homepage of Netflix you will find Brahman Naman listed next to Narcos and House of Cards That’s amazing for me When I started off I wanted to show my films in indie film festivals I never wanted to make Avatar-like blockbusters We will release it in the US next month and that’s a tricky market The thing is: this is like a dream come true for me Let’s talk about Brahman Naman How did it happen I walked into the picture later It was actually the baby of producer Steve Barron (director of the 1990s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and Naman Ramachandran (an Indian author and journalist who also runs the London Indian Film Festival) It is about Naman growing up in Bangalore in the 1980s He wrote the script and it was brilliant When I was asked to direct the film I related to the era but was unfamiliar with the place I looked at it as a challenge Brahman Naman is a sex comedy about a geek wanting to get laid That’s what most sex comedies are about Isn’t that too conventional a film for someone who made Gandu I have always wanted to play with genres Yes it’s a sex comedy but I think I have managed to make it more than that Look at the female characters in the film They are not passive objects of lust and desire I have tried to empower them with agency The boys are terrible They make mistakes they are insensitive They are like boys at that age But you don’t really hate them do you Naman actually is a complete jerk Yes he is But he is also confused and a kid He doesn’t know what he wants Many may find him fundamentally unlikeable But he is likeable because of that Will you say Brahman Naman is your most conventional film to date It has a linear storyline unlike most of your earlier films I don’t think so I don’t think you will find a film like Brahman Naman running in your next-door multiplex Yes it follows a linear story structure but that’s because that’s the demand of the genre I don’t think there is anything conventional about the way the characters are interpreted in the film I don’t see anything mainstream about the way the story is told Tell us about the female characters in your films Starting from the mother in Gandu who has an affair with a local ruffian but refuses to be judged for it to the groupie in Brahman Naman who doesn’t shy away from offering her body to Naman without any moral misgivings they always have an interesting arc It’s always difficult to write interesting female parts in a primarily boys’ film But we were sure that we didn’t want cardboard cutouts as female presence Even the girls who are objectified by the boys are acutely aware of that and play into it The girl in college knows that the boys are discussing the colour of her panties and she intentionally sits on the bench to flash them The girl who Naman calls anonymously every day plays along because she wants to At that age there are fluid sexual interactions and I didn’t want to commit violence by denying these characters that space Yes the boys unapologetically objectify these girls but we have to realise that they are their friends too Most of your films are about boys on the cusp of becoming men The boy in Gandu the prince in Tasher Desh and now Naman… Yes you are right I have probably told the same story over and over again Maybe I will tell this story 50 times more I don’t think I will tire of this I will reinvent it each time I empathise with this story As boys how do we see the world around us How do we engage with it The boy in Gandu came from a troubled family and then went on his own journey of self-discovery Similarly the prince in Tasher Desh had to go through that They are all utterly confused and make for great canvases Do you identify with them Were you a geek like Naman or a rebel like Gandu I was not a geek for sure I was into music which meant I was cool which means I got a lot of action But I had many boys in my school who were like Naman They weren’t cool but they knew what cool-dom meant While we were busy just living they seemed to have a strange awareness of everything I had this one guy in my class who had a tattered old blazer He was the only guy with a blazer in our class and he was convinced that he looked great in it no matter how ridiculous he actually looked I wanted to incorporate that confidence in Naman Another striking feature about Brahman Naman is the attention to detail From those Waterman fountain pens to the pedal-pushers everything has a lived-in look Even the body language of the characters are distinctly different How did you achieve that You are not from Bangalore after all I shifted to Bangalore for about eight months before shooting the film I tried to pick up the language spent time
