and Mukesh Top News MUSIC ITS myriad moods forms expressions eras is what Anandji Virji Shah renowned Bollywood composer reflected on as he went back in time to recall the golden years of his brother Kalyanji Virji Shah and his journey in the Indian film industry Kalyanji-Anandji as the versatile composers were popularly known composed music for more than 250 films and the musical journey was replete with experiences that made their music timeless Watch what else is in the news Here in Chandigarh Anand ji will be a celebrity guest at a musical evening on Sunday by Vibrations where music lovers will relive golden memories of Mohammed Rafi Kishore Kumar and Mukesh Since 2000 Vibrations a music group has been organising the special evening a platform for singers from humble backgrounds and also promoting and supporting fresh talent from the region “Young people need guidance to pursue a career in Bollywood and it was my brother’s vision that made us form ‘Little Stars’ where we train young talent in the fields of music with singers like Sunidhi Chauhan Palak Muchhal Aditya Narayan…some of the singers who have made us proud There are many nuances that singers need to learn how to sing in a film expressions voice modulations for situations etc and also listening and learning from songs and techniques of stalwarts” smiles Anand ji For someone who wanted to be a hero in Hindi films but did not fit the bill because of his short height music in retrospect smiles the composer was a blessing as the songs the brothers composed continue to live in the hearts of many and have not been lost to time or new-age music “Radio television shows the songs we composed decades ago are still popular and melodious and people of all age groups listen to them And that’s because despite many limitations making music for us was like falling in love We took care of every minute detail the script situation actors space and place of the song ideal instruments and musicians to create the required emotions or expressions We loved what we did and there was so much joy in our work and our relationships” reflects Anand ji now in his late eighties and still full of energy and life Back in the 1950s he recalls recordings were done post midnight and from optical tracks to analogs to hi-tech multi-track digital recordings they worked on technological advancements in film music “The lyrics content and emotions of the songs back then were so beautiful and in sync with what the film demanded Nowadays a song lasts for only a few weeks for there is hardly any substance in it as the emphasis is on the beats Also there is an overdose of music because of changing technology A lot of rehearsal went into making a song for instance I remember we took 12 hours for ‘Mere Desh Ki Dharti using so many instruments and seventy musicians” Anand ji talks of songs from films like ‘Safar’ ‘Upasna’ ‘Chhaliya’ ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ ‘Kora Kagaz’… Also many music directors feels Anandji tend to replicate a hit song and as a result there is a lack of originality with the music being repetitive Catering to the demands of the market he agrees can be taxing “The lyrics are sometimes vulgar and the use of language is also not subtle I believe no school can teach you how to compose music great music can come from the love for it and constant studying research and listening to music of different genres I learnt editing camera and other technical aspects of film-making which helped me to create better music You can’t make music only for people to dance on Each song we did was a challenge and we wanted to constantly improvise and create new expressions” smiles Anand ji President of the Music Directors’ Association Anand ji feels that while remixes are an interesting trend credits need to be given to original composers as the song is their intellectual property “Laws and rules in this regard need to be changed” says Anand ji adding how he was given his due when in 2005

bystander CPR (Source: File Photo) Top News In an event of a sudden heart attack in public places men are more likely to receive CPR from bystanders than women a study claims “By uncovering this disparity we’ll be able to think about new ways to train and educate the public on when why and how to administer bystander CPR in order to help save more lives – of both men and women” said Audrey Blewer assistant director at University of Pennsylvania in the US Researchers evaluated 19331 cardiac events using data from the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium a network of regional clinical centres in the US and Canada which study out-of-hospital treatments of cardiac arrest and trauma They found that 45 per cent of men received bystander CPR in public compared to 39 per cent of womenWhile bystander CPR is still a relatively rare occurring in only about 37 per cent of all cardiac events that happen in public locations men were 123 times more likely to receive it Men were also found to be nearly two times more likely to survive a cardiac event after bystander CPR and they had 23 per cent increased odds of survival without it compared to women “The key take away from these data is that we need to find better and more effective ways to educate the general public on the importance of providing bystander CPR and the importance of being comfortable delivering it regardless of the factors like the gender age or even the weight of the person in need” said Benjamin Abella professor at the University of Pennsylvania “This study and other investigations from our team are only just beginning to peel back the layers on CPR rates and training disparities cardiac arrest survival and the public’s understanding of the importance of rapid intervention during a cardiac emergency” said Abella In addition to bystander CPR rates in public locations the team also looked at possible disparities of in-home CPR Interestingly there was no significant difference based on gender – 35 per cent of women and 36 per cent of men received CPR in the home While more research would be needed this finding could point to the idea that people may be less comfortable delivering CPR to a woman they do not know rather than a man because of the physical barriers “Regardless of someone’s gender or how their body is shaped delivering bystander CPR during cardiac arrest is absolutely critical as it has been proven to double and even triple a victim’s chance of survival” said Blewer For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express

activism and writing books for children Nandana Sen says her writing helps her acting and vice versa “Acting and writing are both ways of telling a story of creating emotions and characters The way I tell a story has been deeply influenced by my experience as an actor “Similarly as an actor I am hugely affected by the fact that as writers we are always using our imagination to make up characters” Sen told PTI on the interdependence of the worlds of acting and writing Her last film was the 2014 Ketan Mehta directed “Rang Rasiya” a biopic on painter Raja Ravi Verma Since then she has written two children’s books “Kangaroo Kisses” and “Mambi and the Forest Fire” “The way I storyboarded ‘Mambi’ – which I’ve been told is very “cinematic” in its conception – had a great deal to do with my experience in film And in acting I prepare for my role just like a writer extensively sketches out a character” Sen daughter of economist Amartya Sen said She said as an actor she explores imagines and then writes down every small thing in the back-story of the part “You would never see these details in the film but they affect the character’s choices and behaviour So I have to make my character’s back-story very real while acting – and also of course while I’m writing” Sen said While living in Mumbai the actress-turned-author was dividing her time between acting child rights and writing “Now that I have moved away from Mumbai I still divide time between these three worlds… Now the emphasis is to spend more time on writing” Sen said adding that she hasn’t left Bollywood yet “I have always done films that have some strong social or political conscience and to the causes that I am passionate about I will continue to do that” Sen who has been actively working on children issues with UNICEF Operation Smile and National Council for Protection of Child Rights said The stories she has written in the books she said had been building up in her while working with children “I have been wanting to have the time to write Had I not decided to move away from full-time acting it wouldn’t have been possible It was a natural decision for me” she said Sen had started writing fiction at the age of ten and her first piece of published writing was a poem selected by Satyajit Ray in ‘Sandesh’ magazine An activist at heart Sen says what draws her to children’s books is the same thing that attracts her to cinema – both have tremendous capacity to transform the world “But this book sensitises children about courage about helping others in need and about loving yourself
