Priyanka Chopra : There are huge stereotypes about Hindi films in the west

Actress Priyanka Chopra said “huge” stereotypes still exist west of the Indian film industry and will take more Indian players in the common parts to gradually break these long terms. “There are huge stereotypes about India, about Hindi movies. There is a lot more awareness now that Hindi movies are a big industry, but stereotypes still exist,” Priyanka said in an interview.
Priyanka Chopra will now be honored with the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke
“These are stereotypes that have to fight all the time and I guess they will not lead to educating people and making them see Indian actors in the main parts (to raise awareness) that we can do it.” He did not put us in a box But it’s going to be a fight.
“I think they understood that Hindi films are not only directed at participating in songs and dances at random,” he said. Priyanka, who plays villain Victoria Leeds in “Baywatch,” released in India on Friday, said diversity in the entertainment world is the need for time, not just in roles and as actors.
“I believe that in cases where there is a demand there will always be offer.Even the public and people who see and consume entertainment must be open to all kinds of people in emblematic pieces and not just a certain type of actors or people who see themselves In a certain way, “he said.
Priyanka said, “She would like to see a woman play James Bond or see an Indian actor in a superhero movie without the label of being an Indian and just being an actor.” “It was at that time it will become the mainstream.” Fair (India), but Indian gamers around the world should be part of the show business, because that’s what the world looks like. , That there should be more representation. ”
To know if a Bond movie might be next on the anvil, he said: “You never know I’m talking to some movies here and a couple in India do not know if it’s going to be a bad guy or not, but .. always I look for variety in the parts that I choose and I hope this is what I can do.
Priyanka, who had a busy schedule with the promotions of ‘Baywatch’, travels to Berlin and London for the premiere of the film. He said he was “excited” by the release of ‘Baywatch’ in India in Hindi and English. “I’m very excited about it, people have been a fan of the TV series. I’m very happy that we have very few cuts, people will enjoy the movie,” he said.

In his experience of his Hollywood debut, Priyanka said that “Baywatch” is his first American film, it is also his 51st film. “For me, this is my next movie.This is how I see it.I’m an artist and I will go where my work takes me.In all parts of the world where you go, you only know your work and deliver. , Is a great thing “.
Priyanka juggled many roles in real life and she said she was grateful for the opportunities. “It takes a different kind of discipline.I can handle two races on two continents, you have to give a lot, give up your dream, give up a routine or normality.It is a choice to make, there is no free lunch in the world” .
“I want to do things that he imposed on me and I have to give him (things) along the way. I’m always tired and jet lag, but I love my job and I’m grateful,” he said.

Donald Trump Jr.’s Stunningly Incriminating Statement To The New York Times

Donald Trump Jr.'s Stunningly Incriminating Statement To The New York Times

Donald Trump Jr.’s Stunningly Incriminating Statement To The New York Times

Donald Trump Jr. made a potentially damaging report for the New York Times much, much worse.

The Times said Sunday that the president’s eldest son pledged to announce information about Hillary Clinton before meeting with a Russian lawyer missed the Kremlin at Trump Tower in New York on June 9, 2016.

As reporters Jo Becker, Matt Apuzzo and Adam Goldman explained, Trump Jr. motivation to accept the meeting “highlights the central issue in the federal investigation of the Kremlin interference in the presidential election if Trump’s campaign collusion with the Russians.

The gathering of the accounts represent the first public indication that at least part of the campaign were willing to accept Russian aid.

Paul Manafort, the president of the country at that time, and Jared Kushner, the son and adviser to President Donald Trump also attended.

Needless to say, the report looks bad for the president, although his private legal team at The Times that Trump did not participate did not even know of the meeting. Trump has a reading book going in situations like these: questioning the credibility of unidentified sources (five in this case) and crying, “false news”

But Trump Jr. took this strategy from the table with a very compromising first response.

“In a statement Sunday, Donald Trump Jr. said he had met the Russian lawyer, at the request of an acquaintance.

“Afterwards the compliments were exchanged,” she said, “the woman said she had information that people linked to Russia fund the Democratic National Committee and Clinton’s support.

His statements were vague, ambiguous and meaningless. No detail or supporting information was provided or even offered. It soon became apparent that he had no meaningful information.

“He said that the conversation was turned around by adopting Russian children and the Magnitsky Act, a US law that lists alleged Russian human rights abusers.

The law has so inflamed President Vladimir Putin that Russia responded by stopping the adoptions of Russian American children.

“” It became apparent to me that this was the real program claiming potentially useful information was a pretext for the meeting, “said Trump.

Read the last part again: “Potentially useful information requests were a pretext for the meeting.”

Trump Jr. confirmed that he entered the meeting pending receipt of information from the Russian lawyer that could harm Clinton. It is a breath of admission.

The rest of the statement Trump Jr. tries to minimize the value of what the lawyer actually said. The outcome of the meeting and its effect on the presidential race is important, of course, but it is quite different.

Trump Jr.’s attempt to obtain information from a Russian lawyer who could hurt Clinton seems likely to alarm investigators if the effort has been effective.

Overall Reform Measures

Economic reform measures have laid the platform for take-off, but remained half-starts. Opposition has stymied the two major legislative initiatives—to relax rules on land acquisition and to create a goods- and-services tax (GST) to replace the current maze of central and state taxes. Sequencing of reforms is equally important. It is often argued that factor markets have largely remained untouched by reforms. People have particularly the labour market in mind. Flexible labour markets always help in generating faster growth. According to Dr. C. Rangarajan “the time for modifying labour markets is when the economy is booming—that is, when the eco­nomy will be able to absorb easily the disruptions, if any, caused in the labour market. Labour will then realise that it stands to gain more by a fast-growing economy than by legis­lative constraints. It is only in a growing economy that new entrants join the labour force in a big way. It avoids the trap of the employed becoming the enemy of the unem­ployed. Thus, while some reforms of the labour market are necessary, they should wait till the economy gathers momentum and moves on to a stronger growth path”.

Social Sector

Prof. Amartya Sen has empha­sised that the market economy does well for industries and agriculture, by and large, with a few exceptions it does not do well for education and healthcare. The important issue is of asymmetric information. This is a very important part in the understanding of any market economy. India is the only country which is trying to get universally educated and universal healthcare through the private sector. Japan, US, Europe, China, Vietnam, Cuba, Hong Kong and Singapore they all saw the importance of the state in making education and health­care widely spread and universal. Educa-tion and healthcare were badly neglected and continue to be so even today. The fact that with an un­healthy, uneducated labour force, it is very difficult to generate income from them and very’ difficult for solidly-shared development growth at a high level to continue. In a

PD/April/2016/94

country where half the population doesn’t have a school to go to, to concentrate on the internet is a bit of a mistake.

Poverty reduction cannot be disassociated from non-performing loans by banks to big business while farmers end their lives, the former said to fuel the wheels of democracy. Without conscious recognition of this tripartite link and resolve to reset it, poverty Is bound to remain the most convenient and used political agenda item. Hopefully, 2016 will end-up showing promised change. Our education and skills development must reach many more than it does. We must improve the delivery of our social schemes and reduce thefts, waste, and improve efficient delivery.

Cooperative Federalism

While pursuing cooperative fede­ralism, regional imbalance should not be overlooked. The growing gap in per capita income between the forward and laggard States is a cause of socio-economic stress. The ‘race to reform’ model does not take into account some factors driving long­term investment preferences : the institutional climate, urban infrastruc­ture and social development. If the Western and Southern States have left their eastern counterparts behind, it is because of their traditionally superior governance, and health and educa­tion facilities.

Financing social sector through Central schemes is a phenomenon of the last one-and-a-half decades. How­ever, while examining the various routes for social sector spending, through earmarked cesses and cen­trally-sponsored schemes in the Indian federal system, States are the primary drivers of social sector spending, be it on health or educa­tion. States’ share in social sector has remained significantly higher than the share of Centre. Over 20 per cent of the social sector expenditure by States is funded by Central transfers. Additional fiscal space given to States by way of increasing their share in the divisible pool, different States are expected to respond differently both in quantitative and qualitative terms. As things stands there has been no perceptible movement towards co­operative federalism.

Employment

The most worrying failure been the absence of job creation the most important thing for government is to find out why m: jobs are not being created. The Sta: worst affected by drought are sdl not benefiting adequately from r MGNREGA. Policymakers sho_ emphasise the provision of adequaa job opportunities as economic grov— would be meaningful and inclus: only if the living standards of eve* Indian were improved. Policies a create more jobs and sharpen : skills of the labour force will needed to take advantage of derri graphic edge.

According to Pranab Bardhan, z output elasticity of employing: (which is the increase in employme for every 1 per cent increase in e: nomic output) is 0-2 per cent, ever ::i the highly labour-intensive serv:. sector. Nearly 30 per cent of Indr in the 5-24 age groups are neither employment nor in education training. India will have a lab.:. force of 568-4 million in 2020, additional 42-9 million people compared to 2015. This present- t unique challenge before polir makers—that of providing more : to the youth.

4-3 million jobs were added the Indian economy during the tv year period 2011-13. The rise formal employment was a mu: more modest rise of 2-7 million permanent workers. Today, close half or 43 per cent of governm; employees are temporary and many as 3.5 million government i have been outsourced to the priv: sector during 2000-12.
