Related News British-Indian filmmaker Sunhil Sippy who is all geared up for the release of his film ‘Noor’ starring Sonakshi Sinha feels that the actress has got a tremendous range “I like the fact that Sonakshi Sinha has tremendous range She is funny quirky and silly but she is also very intense and serious In Noor I got the opportunity to explore every part of her as an actor” Sunhil said during an interview Noor is based on Saba Imtiaz novel “Karachi You’re Killing Me” and tells the tale of a journalist-writer Noor’s misadventures and love life as she navigates her way through Mumbai “Sonakshi Sinha was our first choice I didn’t know if it was right at the very beginning but when I started and once I got to end it became evident she was perfect for the role” added the director Though the movie is women centric Sunhil says all the characters in the film are three-dimensional which means every character’s behaviour reveals things about main lead “It is definitely a woman-centric film and it is really about ‘Noor’ and her coming of age but every character in the film is three-dimensional “So the behaviour of every opposing character will be revealing things about main lead ‘Noor’ is in constant conflict and other characters are balancing so she is not overshadowing anybody in the film” explained the maker about his main lead and other characters “Noor is defined by the world she exists in She is defined by interaction with others so all the characters had to be equally rich as her” Sunhil added further Also read |Sonakshi Sinha want people to stop

Published: February 1 2017 10:35 am Illegal construction in the 1984 Riot Victims Colony in Phase 11 of Mohali Sahil Walia Top News THE IMPLEMENTATION of need-based policy has become a political victim The policy which would affect around 15000 households in the city was to be implemented in January this year but first it was delayed and ultimately it could not be implemented as both SAD and Congress feared that if according to the policy some people have to remove encroachments it could cut their votes Watch what else is making news Residents in different areas are now raising the issue with the candidates whenever they go to seek votes from them The residents of Phase 11 Phase 2 Phase 3A Phase 1 Phase 5 and Mohali village will be directly affected by the implementation of the policy According to sources in the Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) the process of implementing the policy was completed but it could not be implemented as there were many households in Phase 11 where there were illegal encroachments and if the policy was implemented all these encroachments were to be removed “Had we removed the encroachments then both the political parties might have faced ire of people which could cut their votes So the implementation was delayed” said an official on condition of anonymity Captain (Rtd) Surjeet Singh who is a resident of Phase 11 and also a member of a committee of the residents formed for putting up suggestions regarding need-based policy said that it was bad that the policy was not implemented after all the surveys conducted in the city The policy would benefit thousands of people as their structures which they constructed to extend their houses were to be made legal “When people came to the city and started living in small flats there was sufficient space for them But as their families grew they faced space crunch So they extended their houses by making new constructions The policy was framed to keep in mind all these parameters and we were expecting that it would be implemented before the elections but again it became a political victim” Captain (Rtd) Surjeet Singh says Satnam Singh another Phase 11 resident says that they met all the officials of GMADA and urged them to implement the policy but the officials told them that they did not get the orders from their bosses as they were making some amendments to the policy “Earlier it was to be implemented in March last year GMADA also invited objections from the residents It was to be implemented in June but it was delayed due to reasons better known to GMADA officials Then it was said that it would be implemented in November but it could not be done” says Satnam Singh Major Singh a Phase 2 resident says that most of the residents of his area have extended their houses and they need the relief but they have to wait for more time now The candidates are however again promising that the implementation of the policy will be one of their first priorities Congress candidate Balbir Singh Sidhu says that if he is elected his fist priority would be to implement the policy SAD candidate Tejinder Pal Singh Sidhu too terms it his first priority AAP candidate Narinder Shergill claims it is a failure of both the candidates as they were in a position to get the policy implemented For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App

with Lahore and yet we could not find the house where she lived and painted in her last months Born of Indo-Hungarian parents she was conceived here and came back in 1937 from Paris for an exhibition at the famous Faletti’s Hotel to resounding success Later she was to set up home in this vibrant city We were told it still existed — the house where Victor Egan her husband had his clinic on the ground floor the living quarters on the first floor and a barsati surrounded by a terrace her studio on the top floor It was from her studio that she saw a milkman with his buffaloes and did her last unfinished painting Slate black buffaloes squat on the ochre road one with a crow perched on its snout A woman draped in a red veil dries cow-dung cakes on the terrace the red caught by the portico at the back bursts into a flame in the distant horizon This was the pastoral view from her studio which she captured on her canvas But equally it was the transportation of the feudal world she had known into the culture of the throbbing city that was Lahore The red at the back is like a tongue of flame emblazoning a new trail of imagination the painting a possible breakthrough in yet another direction abruptly terminated by her sudden death The one person who did know was veteran Lahori Pran Nevile in the city for the Lahore Literary Festival (which took place in February) At the Gymkhana Club where we were staying he pointed northwards He said “Just go further down near the high court next to it is the Ganga Ram Building and behind it are the Ganga Ram apartments and one among them is her house” We tracked it with determination on our last day in Lahore Off the busy Mall Road behind the Ganga Ram Trust Building were the Ganga Ram mansions built by famed philanthropist and civil engineer Sir Ganga Ram We found two rows of elegant stucco buildings that seemed to belong to another era Finally at the end was 23 Ganga Ram Mansion where Amrita spent her last few months From the road we could see the topmost barsati where she must have spent a great deal of time painting But the back view is no longer pastoral In its place many new buildings jostle for space alongside each other Suddenly a kind middle-aged woman and her daughter sitting in the balcony opposite called us up to join them for a cup of tea We climbed the lovely old wooden staircase to their identical house and gazed at the high ceiling of the rooms the fireplace in the dining room and the spacious balcony where they sat The lady said that she knew the house opposite belonged to the famous artist because her neighbour a painter called Afzal was her friend and had talked often about her She said that the painter mentioned that Amrita was a nice person and kind and generous These elegant row houses are no longer in their prime and could do with some restoration They stand firm however — a testimony to the period in the Thirties when they were constructed when the city was in its prime where artists like Abdur Rahman Chughtai and Bhabesh Sanyal lived and writers like Faiz Ahmed Faiz Khushwant Singh and Amrita Pritam attended soirees The Indo-Saracenic Lahore museum was close with its marvelous Gandhara collection and Indus Valley relics Amrita visited often and would gaze at the miniatures The barrel gun that stood outside had been mentioned by Rudyard Kipling in Kim Inside hung the sole Amrita Sher-Gil painting Veena Player (1937) purchased by Charles Fabri for the museum This was the city Amrita Sher-Gil had come to in September 1941 full of hope and planned for an exhibition in December But before that could happen she took ill and died suddenly The exhibition was posthumously held It was on the midnight of that fateful day of December 5 that Amrita died thinking of colours Her husband Victor stated “She kept mumbling about colours — blues reds and greens and violets all sorts of colours Unconsciously or subconsciously she was still thinking about colours and light and shade Then she went into a deep coma…” And colours are what her last unfinished work is about seen as sheets of planes rather than as mass Was she heading towards greater abstraction in her work Would she have spun a whole suite of paintings following this memorable for their sensuous plasticity Who can tell — we only know that the house in Lahore stands firm a witness to the remarkable 28-year-old

company buses and taken away before they could go through with their plans “We ended our strike on March 21 2016 and resumed work and even all the pending enquiries have ceased Since then we had been raising our charter of demands that we gave the firm last February at regular intervals We had 10 meeting with the management none yielded any results No one from the upper management has participated in these talks Despite having shared our demands with the company officials at the meeting today at the deputy labour commissioner’s office they said they have to study them Two people were given

long term benefits of both workmen and organisation The demand made by the Union are unreasonable The Company remains engaged in a harmonious discussion with the union representatives Instead of
