always kind of muggy in Patna In the early 1990s it appeared sultrier than normal The days would be hot and the nights would be dry There was only so much one could do I don’t know if the irregular load-shedding and the absence of electricity were the reasons for the dreariness or if one could point towards the abrupt “Kal shaam chhe baje phir mulakaat hogi” endings of Doordarshan as the cause Or whether the limited stock of antakshari songs (despite the unending stock of holidaying cousins to play them with) was the prime suspect Or perhaps it was just teenage angst Those were also the days when Aamir Khan was doing snake movies Rishi Kapoor was wearing his last set of sweaters Jackie Shroff’s films were box-office hits and Vinod Khanna was cracking dudhu jokes as he leered at women in Farishtay Yes There really was only so much one could do Buzzwords like liberalisation and globalisation were just beginning to appear and private TV channels became an everyday fix Cable TV was slowly becoming the fashionable thing in small-town India a perfect middle-class counterpoint to the safari-suit-and- pomeranian superiority of the elite My professor parents of course thanks to their worldview and wisdom nurtured by Brahminical leanings had strong opinions on any form of unsupervised entertainment Exactly the reason why I readily agreed when Ramkailasji my trusted aide and the family Man Friday recommended that we steal the cable connection since the wires went through our house Till then our experience in thievery was restricted to pocketing raw mangoes of the awesomely juicy Maldah variety from the neighbours’ yard So I was not too sure Having said that the lure of breaking the boredom and seeing content outside of the staid DD programming was too much The programming options were many beyond the Krishi Darshans and Chitrahaars of the world There was finesse and flair one wasn’t used to seeing on television Plus there was MTV That thing that was meant to morally corrupt the youth of the nation I was ready to be corrupted All it took was a pair of garden cutters and some ingenuity and we were a cable TV household between 10pm and 5am opening the gates to a hitherto unseen world The firang accent the cool graphics the smart promos the interesting shows — they were all from a distant land There was Star Plus with The Crystal Maze Donahue Oprah and oh those kissing cousins in The Bold and The Beautiful Or the cigarette-smoking Tara in the eponymous series on Zee TV and even the obnoxious Mohan Kapoor on the channel’s Saanp Seedi and Rajat Sharma giving birth to a different breed of journalism in Aap Ki Adalat This was all different New And real And then there was of course MTV With its funky graphics bizarre spots and fast pace It smelled like teen spirit With Michael Jackson and Madonna With Guns N’ Roses a paradoxical co-existence that could well define MTV With Right Said Fred declaring sexiness and Phil Collins his inability to dance With Pearl Jam Megadeth Metallica and innumerous such bands that us small-towners had no knowledge of I saw images I never thought existed I saw people I never could be I saw love I saw debauchery It was culturally alien at times But it was all eye-opening I could never be them I knew And yet I wanted to know more about them I saw possibilities And I am not just talking television I am talking life For that Hindi-medium boy from Bihar struggling with itihaas bhugol and nagrik shastra in school it was almost like creating his own history every night by unshackling himself from all that was around him By thinking beyond the books and course material By taking those fantastic flights to nowhere I never did stop thinking in Hindi I did not develop an accent I never could appreciate Pearl Jam Megadeth or Metallica I did not try becoming a different person with brand new reference points Only my perspective changed I started seeing things differently I did not know where I wanted to go but I knew what it would be like We were caught soon enough by Papa He was obviously upset He said all we had to do was ask But I wasn’t complaining It was worth the trip It is not as if it suddenly changed my persona or that I could see doors opening for me But the entire visual experience day on day made me realise that there were so many doors that existed It was not just economic libera lisation at work or just liberalisation It was liberation It changed my outlook It made me more confident more audacious It allowed me to dream differently That gawky teenager son of professor parents started looking beyond engineering and medicine as a career as did many of us from similar backgrounds Everything in the world hitherto unseen was now around us And everything was achievable We did not have to travel to foreign lands to broaden our horizons The world had come to us in the form of Camay soaps and Hershey’s chocolates Brand new malls and multiplexes In the queues at McDonald’s Buzzing on pagers and mobile phones Surprisingly none of it made me feel poor and deprived at any point of time It kept egging me to have a deeper resolve to become better off (read rich) In retrospect that was the crudest and yet the most important contribution of liberalisation to small-town India and not just to me We stopped feeling guilty about earning and spending money something that Papa would not have approved of We were okay to let go of our middle-classery Of course that came with its own set of struggles Mumbai the city I had chosen to move to gave me its perfumed indifference showing me my place in the 8:11 local I gave it my unadulterated confidence Very soon we reached a compromise and the city was home Fate brought me to MTV in 2000 And MTV gave me the confidence to change it It had made me embrace its globalness I made it embrace my Indianness being a part of the team that made it desicool I worked with them for 10 long years fancy designation

Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsThe odds of having a son or daughter aren’t always even Many kinds of animals will preferentially bear more males or females to increase the chances of passing on their genes Female fruit flies for example bear more sons after mating with younger males than with older ones Why The reason researchers have learned is that the sons of young lovers are much more likely to turn out to be virile studs To solve the puzzle evolutionary biologists Tristan Long now at the University of California in Santa Barbara and Alison Pischedda at Queen’s University in Kingston Canada mated virgin female Drosophila to males of various ages The team found that the sons of young (1-day old) males produced more offspring than sons of old (13-day old) males; whereas there was no difference in numbers of offspring produced by daughters of young and old males This indicates that it pays to produce more sons when mated to a high quality (in this case young) male the researchers report online 20 July in Proceedings of the Royal Society B Older males may give rise to poorer quality sons because they’ve accumulated harmful mutations during their lives and these will have a bigger effect on sons than daughters because males experience more intense selection pressure when it comes to mating the team speculates But the researchers don’t know how fruit flies skew their progeny’s sex ratio towards sons or daughters "A study like this raises more questions than it answers but the questions . are very intriguing" says John Werren an evolutionary geneticist at the University of Rochester in New York State For instance are females somehow choosing between X- and Y-bearing sperm by some subtle mechanism or "are Y-bearing sperm from young males better swimmers" he asks As to why young males produce higher quality sons the idea that they carry fewer mutations than old males is "reasonable" but the whole question merits further study he adds

comedy With Aamir Khan thoughshe is taking an altogether different route by scripting a suspense drama Says a veteran insider”Now that’s a first for Aamir because in his career spanning over two

different subject altogether”reveals Reema who also wrote Hrithik Roshan-Katrina Kaif starrer Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara for close friend and colleague Zoya Akhtar “We decided to pick a different subject and build it on further It definitely sounded interesting and I bided my timegot this script in place for the new subjectand approached Aamir again” Given the fact that Aamir is known for his ‘active contribution’ to the projects that he consents to; did the famed ‘improvisation’ affect her script as well After all there are still a few more weeks to go and there could be possible changes
