/dev/anand update ... and maar noose

previously this space had noted that Dev Anand had announced another of his ventures to waste human and film resources with a film based on the life of Ravi Shankar. Well, The Daily Telegraph quoted Ravi Shankar's "daughters, Grammy-winning jazz sensation, Norah Jones and sitarist Anoushka and wife Sukanya, to say they were appalled by Anand's new film project The Song of Life" (yes, this space had reported a different title the last time). I must agree with their response. Someone should convince Mr Anand that his films are an embarassment to viewers in India, and the world in general. Perhaps we could classify them as "videotoxic" waste?

The Big B turns 61 come October 11. Last year it was an expensive book this year it's going to be a song, which will be part of an album called India's Legends. "The album is a tribute to a number of Indian luminaries including President A P J Abdul Kalam, cricket star Sachin Tendulkar, the late astronaut Kalpana Chawla, the late social worker Mother Teresa, and legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar, apart from Bachchan". And he's going to celebrate by reviving ABCL.
