multi-talented artist Manorama’s journey from a street artist to one of the most versatile loved and respected south Indian actresses will go down as one of the most inspiring stories in Indian cinema It took over half a century for Manorama who was born as Gopishanta alias Pallathur Papa in Rajamannargudi in Thanjore district to rise to the level of a historic comedienne par excellence and become a household name in south India Aachi as she was fondly called by her fans died following a cardiac arrest at a private hospital here on Saturday plunging the industry into gloom She was 78 and is survived by her son and actor-singer Boopathy She began her career as a street singer and occasionally sang for stage artists It was during one such show she was rechristened Manorama and was forced to act because the heroine refused to play her part Soon she joined SS Rajendran’s Nataka Mandram and it was here that she was spotted by lyricist Kannadasan who roped her in 1958 Tamil film “Malayitta Mangai” Manorama was hesitant to take up the role as a comedienne but destiny willed otherwise Manorama earned the love of the audience with her spirited performance in the film and went on to team up with stalwarts such as Thangavelu Thengai Srinivasan Cho and Nagesh In 1963 she debuted as the lead heroine in Tamil film “Konjum Kumari” In her role she proved her versatility and her gift to render lines in different dialects with ease Two years later she starred in AP Nagarajan-directed Tamil mythological film “Thiruvilayadal” and a year later she teamed up again with the director in “Saraswathi Sabatham” Nagarajan made full use of Manorama’s acting prowess in the 1968 Tamil musical “Thillana Mohanambal” and her role as Jil Jil Ramamani elevated her star status earning her a large fan base It was the performance of a lifetime “Jil Jil is a role I fell in love with Over the years I became a fan of it It was very special as it’s remembered even today by everybody” Manorama had told IANS in an interview Despite the presence of doyens such as Sivaji Ganeshan and Padmini in “Thillanaa” Manorama earned critical acclaim for her act Some of Manorama’s best roles were opposite comedians Cho and Nagesh with whom she worked in over 100 films In the 1968 Tamil film “Bommalattam” she teamed up with Cho and showcased her singing talent with the raging number “vaa vaathiyaare uttande” and it broke new ground in the realm of comedy Her rendition of the song in true Madras lingo was widely appreciated and she was soon referred to as Suraiya of South Indian Cinema Manorama’s first stint with singing began under the tutelage of music director MA Kumar In Tamil film “Magale Un Samathu” (1964) Manorama crooned the popular number “Thatha thatha pidi kudu” along with LR Eswari She sang in about 60 films a record none of her contemporaries could match One of the most popular numbers was “muthu kulika varigala” from the Tamil film “Anubhavi Raja Anubhavi” and it was later used in the film’s Hindi remake titled “Do Phool” As a tribute to Manorama’s popular songs HMV even released an album titled “Vaa Vaathiyaare” which sold over a lakh copies She made a very successful transition from a comedienne to a character artist and starred in memorable Tamil films such as “Singaravelan” “Michael Madana Kama Rajan” “Vazhve Mayam” with Kamal Haasan and “Billa” “Thanga Magan” and “Naan Adimai Illai” alongside Rajinikanth “One of the most difficult roles I ever played was in the film ‘Nadigan’ I had to romance an actor (Sathyaraj) much younger than me It was quite challenging because I had to retain the dignity of the character” she said Her roles in “Chinna Gounder” “Chinna Thambi” “Kadhalan” “Nattamai” “Gemini” and “Saamy” proved the septuagenarian star’s talent in supporting roles One of her best performances as a character artist came as a domestic help Kannamma in 1986 film “Samsaram Athu Minsaram” In her sole Hindi performance she was paired with Mehmood in “Kunwara Baap” and she dubbed her lines in her own voice With over 1000 films — some industry sources put the figure at 1200 — across five languages (including Malayalam and Telugu) to her credit Manorama achieved an unmatchable feat Towards the fag end of her career she even starred in Tamil television serials and a few advertisements too She was the recipient of Kalaimamani award and bagged a National Award for her performance in 1989 Tamil film “Puthiya Pathai” In 2002 Manorama was honoured with Padma Shri Her last film was Suriya-starrer “Singam 2” A few months ago when rumours

on the shift in gears from Tests to T20s the leg-spin legend said: “The West Indies have always been a tough side . they are the T20 world champions About the shift that we need to make from Test

With inputs from Agencies By: Reuters | Lausanne | Published: October 8 2016 10:51 pm IOC proposals are likely to be approved at WADA’s next meeting in November (Source: File) Top News The International Olympic Committee (IOC) wants to give more power to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in the fight against drug-cheating by athletes it said on Saturday The IOC said it was agreed at a meeting of world sports leaders that the WADA should oversee the testing of athletes while sanctions would be decided by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) Testing is currently conducted by either national anti-doping agencies or international sports federations who also decide sanctions WADA’s role is mainly a regulatory one which includes compiling the list of banned substances The so-called Olympics Summit held behind closed-doors at a luxury hotel in Lausanne also proposed that WADA should have more control over national anti-doping agencies and should supervise national anti-doping programmes “WADA welcomes all constructive proposals aimed at reinforcing clean sport” its president Craig Reedie said adding that today’s meeting was another stop towards strengthening WADA and the global anti-doping system “The recommendations that were put forward today will be considered along with others that we have received from stakeholders on such key topics as: WADA’s governance and funding model; consequences for non-compliance; investigations; and testing” Reedie said The IOC proposals are likely to be approved at WADA’s next meeting in November “We are to be given substantial additional authority and substantial additional power so I am fairly happy with that” Reedie told reporters “We have been given powers on compliance and …we are going to produce a whole range of potential sanctions for different degrees of non-compliance so that’s in our hands and we will do that” He said it was hoped to have the new system in place by the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang South Korea Relations between the IOC and WADA have been strained since two independent reports commissioned by WADA revealed evidence of widespread state-sponsored doping in Russia The IOC resisted calls for a blanket ban on Russians competing in the Rio Games due to the country’s doping record leaving decisions on individual athletes’ participation with their sports federations Last month’s Paralympics however did ban all Russian athletes Reedie has complained that WADA’s annual budget of around $30 million funded partly by national governments and partly by the IOC is not enough and IOC President Thomas Bach agreed that it would now need an increase “If these reforms were to be implemented 100 percent this would mean substantial commitments and a substantial increase in the tasks and responsibilities of WADA” Bach said in a teleconference He said that national Olympic committees could divert the money they currently spend on anti-doping to WADA and provide it with personnel but he did not think that the bill could be passed on to sponsors and broadcasters “I do not see this as a solution because I think it is the obligation and the duty of the sport organisations to fight against doping and to protect the clean athletes” he said “To have sponsors and broadcasters paying for anti-doping appears to me to be not to be the right way but indirectly it will happen because our money comes from sponsors and broadcasters” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Sonup Sahadevan | Mumbai | Published: December 17

download Indian Express App More Top NewsThe government’s recent statement about the Hurriyat Conference has been criticised as yet another U-turn By explicitly conceding that there was “no bar” on Hurriyat leaders meeting Pakistani officials in India New Delhi has erased the “red line” that it had drawn in August 2014 But a U-turn is not necessarily a bad thing — especially if it gets you moving in the right direction The real question is whether the government knows where it wants to go from here The decision to make the India-Pakistan dialogue contingent on the latter avoiding contact with the Hurriyat was taken in the exuberant aftermath of the 2014 electoral victory Not only was Prime Minister Narendra Modi the object of international adulation but his decision to invite regional leaders for his swearing-in had seemingly pole-vaulted him to a position of unassailable strength The “my way or the highway” stance adopted on Pakistan’s dealings with the Hurriyat was a product of this over-confident milieu It took well over a year for the government to realise that calling off talks did not help isolate Pakistan On the contrary New Delhi found that all its significant international interlocutors — big and small — were pressing for a resumption of engagement with Islamabad Even after the government decided to move in this direction the “red line” drawn under the Hurriyat tripped it up With the subsequent resumption of full-fledged dialogue with Pakistan however it was clear that the precondition about contact with the Hurriyat was no longer operative Representational image of Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Pakistani High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit AFP There are at least a couple lessons to be learnt from this episode First the terms of engagement with Pakistan cannot be reset easily or whimsically There was good reason why the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government had allowed these contacts in the first place Understanding the history of this relationship is crucial to navigating its contours This is equally true of another trap into which the government has fallen: Assuming that calling off diplomatic engagement will somehow help tackle terrorism emanating from Pakistan Wisdom lies in learning from the mistakes made by others Second reputation and credibility do matter in foreign policy — especially in longstanding adversarial relationships like those between India and Pakistan But contrary to what some critics have said this does not mean persisting with patently futile and self-defeating policies like the “red line” about the Hurriyat Rather because credibility does count New Delhi should be careful about the kinds of issues on which it stakes its reputation Otherwise it risks creating and discerning interests where none really lie Drawing and erasing arbitrary red lines is problematic from this perspective rather just amounting to a U-turn The formal retraction of this policy comes in the specific context of both external and internal developments Events in the past month have confirmed — if ever there was a doubt — that the Pakistan Army is not happy with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s embrace of Modi Against this backdrop the old conundrum of how if at all to link talks with terror continues to confound New Delhi Given that all other alternatives have been exhausted it is perhaps time the government decided to press ahead with continuous diplomatic engagement irrespective of the where things stand with terrorism This will of course require Modi to use his bully pulpit to make the case for such an engagement The fundamental point is that terrorism can only be tackled by other means and engagement has certain advantages in itself The recent statement by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)on Kashmir should remind the government that disengaging with Pakistan only gives the latter the room to mobilise support in its favour — even from those countries that might be better disposed towards India The internal context is equally important The latest round of popular mobilisation in the Kashmir Valley highlighted the rampant dissatisfaction not just with the coalition government but the political status quo The summer ahead is likely to pose further challenges for the PDP-BJP coalition Unless Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti is given the latitude to kickstart political engagement within the state it is unlikely that the coalition will hold together for very long Bottling up the Hurriyat would only have exacerbated the swirling anger in the Valley By contrast adopting a stance of benign neglect may well bring to the fore the cleavages that separate the “separatists” from one another The responses of Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to the government statements are a good indicator of this Still New Delhi will have to do more It is worth recalling that significant improvements in political climate of Jammu and Kashmir have only occurred when New Delhi has simultaneously sought to improve ties with Srinagar and Islamabad Perhaps the most striking example of this came during Indira Gandhi’s tenure?
