as an excuse’?” says Roy Roy began playing with puppets when she was 10 when one of her parents bought a plain glove puppet to keep her occupied She watched Dadi Pudumjee’s Circus Circus and followed this up with Ranjana Pandey’s Neeli Pari The turning point for her came in school — Sardar Patel Vidyalaya had a puppet teacher and Roy and a group of friends warmed up to the art form soon They performed at birthday parties and when there was a free period for the smaller children in school “We told really stupid stories with a twist such as Red Riding Hood as a blood-thirsty carnivore who went after the wolf” she says In Lady Shri Ram College in Delhi the hobby turned serious and she and her friends decided to start a group That’s how the Katkatha Puppet Arts Trust was born in 1997- 98 says Roy “What we are trying to do is break the idea that puppet theatre is only for children We are still working with children and we have children’s shows but a performance such as Mahabharata is not for children This play is really dark” she says The tradition of puppetry in India is a few thousand years old and there are 17 major forms which are still active But most variants of the art form from different states are limited to their geographies and haven’t made their impact beyond the local Katkatha’s puppets respond to unfolding socio-political situations A comment on gender politics took the form of Twelfth Night (2002) in which characters “cross dress regress and transgress” Anecdotes and allegories by Gulbadan Begum (2009; inspired by Gulbadan Begum Humayun’s sister) explored

after he moved to Delhi He never went back My father I think identifies as a Bengali but he is very Delhi I don’t think of myself as a Kolkatan I have no connection with the city So who was this migrant” she asks In a pivotal scene from Mahabharata Roy crouches under a vast sheet of cloth with a hole for her searching fingers You see her hands grapple with the fabric until it touches a little head stuck on it The fingers become frantic Roy rises to her full height and the cloth studded with bleeding heads falls around her like a tent These are Gandhari’s pickings after the war of Kurukshetra Among the cast is Gundu Raju famous in Karnataka’s Hassan and Mandya regions as a hunter as well as a storyteller and puppeteer His repertoire of ancient songs strings together the episodes of the play “Hum junglee hai” he says “It was in the forests that the first Sillakeyata were born They used to hunt There was no cloth so they wore the skin and hide of animals” The pieces of leather placed in the sun cast shadows of many shapes “When a patriarch died they used to craft a piece of leather in the shape of the father and tell his story Over thousands of years the stories included the Ramayana Puranas and the Mahabharata We tell every new generation this is how it was” he says For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: IANS | Tokyo | Published: November 15 2017 3:33 pm Oral microbes are relatively enriched in gut microbiomes of patients with several diseases (Source: File Photo) Top News Suffering from inflammatory bowel disease According to a new study the bacteria residing in your mouth may be responsible as it activates immune cells to fuel inflammation in the gut The findings showed that when the bacterium Klebsiella pneumoniae colonises in an intestine out of microbial balance immune cells called T helper 1 (TH1) become overactive in the gut resulting in intestinal inflammation leading to the onset of inflammatory bowel disease On an average humans ingest 15 litres of saliva containing bacteria every day which could possibly have harmful effects on health “We noticed that oral microbes are relatively enriched in gut microbiomes of patients with several diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease HIV infection and colon cancer compared with healthy individuals” said Masahira Hattori Professor at the Waseda University in Tokyo For the study published in the journal Science the team administered salivary samples of healthy and inflammatory bowel disease-afflicted individuals to germ-free mice After six to eight weeks the microbial content of the mice’s faeces were analysed which showed that approximately 20 kinds of oral bacteria were present in these mice Klebsiella pneumoniae is usually a normal resident in the mouth of healthy individuals However the researchers advised against excessive and long-term use of antibiotics as Klebsiella pneumoniae could persist in the intestine Another study led by researchers from Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou China suggested that treating gum disease may significantly lower blood pressure “The study demonstrates for the first time that intensive periodontal intervention alone can reduce blood pressure levels inhibit inflammation and improve endothelial function” said lead author Jun Tao Chief of the department of Hypertension and Vascular Disease at the varsity The findings were presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2017 in California For all the latest Lifestyle News download

(Source:Thinkstock Images) Top News With the spurt in social media platforms and the sale of sex shifting online more and more pimps are avoiding detection by using underground websites social media and mobile apps to sell sex a first-of-its-kind study has revealed They are even hiding their ads on mainstream websites such as Craigslist and Backpage “We found that pimps are exploiting the anonymity that new technology and websites allow” said Mary Finn lead study author and director of Michigan State University’s (MSU) school of criminal justice “For police targeted enforcement of the virtual world appears to have very limited potential to deter pimps from managing and advertising the services of sex workers” Finn added For the results criminologists from Michigan State University and Loyola University Chicago interviewed 71 pimps in Atlanta and Chicago to determine how their marketing decisions are influenced by police enforcement of online prostitution The findings published in the journal Victims & Offenders suggest pimps are generally thriving by adapting to new technologies and utilising deceptive online marketing tactics The pimps reported an average annual income of about $75000 with more than one third of them making at least $100000 Technology has reshaped the contours of prostitution with an estimated 80 percent of all sales of sex now occurring online Law enforcement has focused most of its efforts on monitoring sites used frequently by the public mainly Craigslist and Backpage But most pimps said they still advertise on those sites albeit deceptively – hiding the solicitation under the auspices of a massage or date for example Specialty websites have also taken off and online-savvy pimps use their own language symbols and disingenuous photos to advertise their services and communicate with customers “They even have mobile apps now so when you’re in a city and you want to know if there is a prostitute nearby you type in your address and it will give you the locations” Finn said “So the technology they are using to market the sale of sex is pretty phenomenal” Finn interviewed pimps in the conference room of a university building The
