Who's The Best Hack Of Us All?

Heard that old saying—“there can be too much of a good thing”? Well, Indian journalism is getting there in a hurry. With there being too much of it—newspapers, magazines, TV channels—this was coming. Now we have the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards launched by the Indian Express group. Touted as the Pulitzers of Indian journalism, these awards were handed out on Wednesday to those who deserved them. Wonder what the others did? Planned a sting operation on the awards, we guess.

The Soldier Reads

It took Kiran Nagarkar nine years to write God’s Little Soldier—a liberal Muslim boy’s tryst with religious orthodoxy. Yet Aamir Khan stole the show at the Delhi launch. Unlike Akshay Kumar who also dropped in for a book launch recently, Aamir had read this book. Last October, he was also seen at the launch of Vikram Seth’s Two Lives.

The Dye Is Cast

Body paint or strategic cover? What will the designers think up next? Here’s Tania Zaetta in Neeta Bhargava’s more-paint-less-fabric number at the WIFW.

Meet the Parents

Lea, Rhea, Congratulations! Little Aiyana is already a few weeks old and dad hasn’t stopped taking her picture. Well, changing diapers and staying up nights will be a new ball game all together. But it’s advantage parents. Will she wield the tennis racket first or get her fundas of life right? We’ll wait and see. Happy parenting!

  • Arjun Tendulkar, on the threshold of adulthood, is a busy lad—honing his skills by bowling at the Mumbai Indians’ nets, acting as his father’s  younger self in a new docu-pic.... And he visits the Wankhede on IPL match days, like here, during a Mumbai-Gujarat face-off. The occasional big hit seems to distract him at times too!
  • Gargantuan in scope, box-ofice success, even in name, and a mighty confection between myth and an indeterminate past, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, like its precursor, is nevertheless technically sound. The crew converged  in Chennai for the Tamil audio launch, where stars Prabhas and Anushka Shetty soak in the accolades.
  • Whether at Benaras, Haridwar or Rishikesh, every celeb digs the pretty, photogenic poignancy of the evening Ganga aarti. Deepika’s choice of homage was at Rishikesh, to where she repaired with mom Ujjala (in white) for rest and recuperation. Jai ho!
  • Theresa May’s Brexit neg­otiations are tanglingly complex; Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon’s dem­and for a second independence referendum is pressing too. But all the  Brit press managed as a headline when the twain met was a caddish ‘Legs-it’. Just look up, boys!
