यूडली फिल्म्स की ‘अहुने’ को आलोचकों और दर्शकों ने समान रूप से पसंद किया है। मुंबई फिल्म फेस्टिवल (MAMI) में दिखाए जाने के बाद एक्सोन अब ऑस्टिन में स्क्रीनिंग के लिए तैयार है। अपनी सरल स्टोरीलीइन की वजह से एक्जोन पहले ही सुर्खियों में बनी हुई है, जो हल्के-फुल्के अंदाज में कड़वी बात कहती है। यह फिल्म कुछ दोस्तों की कहानी है जो एक्जोन (अहुने) के नाम से जाने जाने वाले एक विशुद्ध उत्तर-पूर्वी स्वादिष्ट भोजन तैयार करने का फैसला करते हैं। हालाँकि इसको तैयार करने के दौरान वे यह भूल जाते हैं कि पकवान से तीक्ष्ण गंध आती है, जो पड़ोस के उनके दोस्तों के लिए एक बहुत बड़ी समस्या है।

ऑस्टिन में ‘एक्जोन’ की स्क्रीनिंग का श्रेय एनजीओ ‘इंडे मेमे’ को जाता है। इस एनजीओ का मकसद दर्शकों को प्रभावित करने वाली व सांस्कृतिक, सामाजिक परिवर्तन लाने वाली फिल्मों को उनके सामने लाना है। फिल्म को बीएफआई लंदन फिल्म फेस्टिवल में भी दिखाया गया और इसके शो हाउसफुल रहे। एक्जोन में सयानी गुप्ता, लिन लाइश्राम, विनय पाठक, डॉली अहलूवालिया और तेनजिन दल्हा मुख्य भूमिकाओं में हैं।

वीपी टेलिविज़न एंड फिल्म्स सारेगामा इंडिया और यूडली फिल्म्स के हेड, सिद्धार्थ आनंद कुमार ने कहा, “एक्जोन जैसी फिल्म बना पाना खुशकिस्मती की बात है जो नस्लवाद के मुद्दे को हल्के-फुल्के(मजाकिया) अंदाज में उजागर करती है। अपनी समस्याओं पर हंसना उनको स्वीकार करने और अंततः उनको हल करने का एक तरीका है। यूडली में हम ऐसी फिल्में बनाने का प्रयास करते हैं जो दर्शकों के दिमाग पर गहरा असर छोड़ें। ”

‘अहुने’ यूडली की लगातार तीन वर्षों में तीसरी फिल्म है जिसे मामी के लिए चुना गया है। पिछली दो फिल्में अज्जी (2017) और हामिद (2018) रही हैं। हामिद ने दो राष्ट्रीय पुरस्कार भी जीते हैं।

अहम और सामाजिक रूप से प्रासंगिक मुद्दों पर ध्यान केंद्रित करते हुए, यूडली फिल्म्स ने अलग हटकर और दमदार कंटेंट वाली फिल्मों के जरिए अपनी छाप छोड़ी है। केडी, नोबेलमेन और हबड्डी इनकी कुछ अन्य फिल्में हैं।

Roorkee Water Conclave 2020 begins at IIT Roorkee
• IIT Roorkee is organizing this three-day conclave in association with NIH Roorkee
• Experts from several countries like the USA, Spain, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, and UK are attending the conference.
• The conclave aims at finding sustainable solutions to hydrologic challenges.

Roorkee: Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee (IIT Roorkee) is organizing the Roorkee Water Conclave (RWC) in collaboration with National Institute of Hydrology, Roorkee (NIH Roorkee). RWC-2020, the first edition of this bi-annual event started today at IIT Roorkee. It would culminate on the 28th of February. The focus of the first edition of RWC-2020 is on “Hydrological Aspects of Climate Change”.
Climate Change and the resultant impact on water resources is one of the most critical global environmental challenges. Various studies predict a rise in global temperature due to climate change over the next hundred years. This makes the issue all the more pertinent. The paucity of water resources is likely to have a global effect but countries in the nascent stage of development are likely to be impacted more due to climate change due to dependence of their economy’s on agriculture.


Shri R. K. Jain, Chairman, Central Water Commission, Ministry of Jalshakti, Department of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, Government of India, New Delhi was the Chief Guest of the Inaugural Event of the Conclave. Many dignitaries including the Director-General, NMCG, also graced the Conclave.
Speaking about the government’s resolve on optimum utilization of water resources during the inaugural session, Shri R.K. Jain emphasized the problem of water resources management being faced in the country. He said, “India has about four percent of the world’s freshwater resources despite having only 2.4% land area making it a better-placed country on the global average. But due to the high population, temporal and excessive variability we are facing very high stress as far as water is concerned. The planning and projections of the past have failed miserably. We need to formulate new mechanisms to address the challenges that lie ahead in the wake of the impact of global warming on water resources.”

Prof. V P Singh, Distinguished Visiting Professor, IIT Roorkee and the Guest of Honour congratulated the chairman and co-chairman of the conclave and said, “This series will go a long way in contributing and sustaining the rich culture of excellence for which Roorkee has come to be known worldwide. The schedule and programs suggest a possibility of quite a few invigorating sessions and paper presentations which will present a great learning experience. This will prove to be beneficial for both the academicians and students, even I look forward to gaining from the stimulating sessions.”
The inaugural session was followed by a plenary session-I which covered several topics related to water resource management. The session was chaired by Shri G Ashok Kumar, NWM and co-chaired by Shri R. K Pachauri, CWC. Er. R. K Jain was among the keynote speakers of this session and he gave an ‘Overview of Water Resources Management in India’. Professor Ramesh Kanwar spoke on Climate Change and Water Security: Policy Issues. The keynote session was followed by parallel technical sessions that dealt with various themes like Monitoring of Hydrological & Hydro-Meteorological data and its Management, Climate Change, Climatological Modelling & Prediction, Hydrological Modelling under Climate Change and Assessment of Water Resources and Climate Change.
A special feature of RWC-2020 is an exhibition on the activities of the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) under the Namami Gange Program – a flagship program of the Government of India. NMCG is organizing a mega two-day exhibition for school students immediately after RWC i.e. on 29th Feb and 1st March 2020. This exhibition for school students would enhance the knowledge and understanding of budding future engineers and managers.
Speaking on the sidelines of the event Dr. Sharad K. Jain, Director, NIH Roorkee said, “The anticipated global warming and its resultant impact on freshwater resources is a grave challenge that is expected to have a massive impact on the global populace. Deliberating and discussing strategies is of utmost importance considering the severity of the situation. In this conference, we would deliberate with researchers to come up with better solutions for water management.”
Some reputed national and international agencies dealing with hydrological instrumentation are showcasing their products and services at the conclave.
A large number of academicians and researchers, both from India and abroad, policymakers, field practitioners and NGOs, students, and other stakeholders are participating in the conclave.
At the end of the first day’s proceedings a visibly delighted Prof. Ajit K. Chaturvedi, Director IIT Roorkee said, “The first day of RWC was focused on the theme and I am delighted that important keynotes were presented by some of the best experts from India and abroad. We hope that the upcoming days of the event would be equally productive and the fraternity would be benefitted by the deliberations.”

Bigg Boss 13 might be over but stories of contestants are far from over yet. Various unseen clips from the season continue to float around for fans to watch. One such video that has appeared is that of actress Arti Singh, known to be one of the most dignified contestants of the show.

The clip shows Arti Singh sitting on the floor of the gym of the BB13 house, speaking to Shefali Jariwala and Mahira Sharma of her childhood and Chichi mama (Govinda). On several occasions during the show, Arti has been vocal about her past, however, this is the first time we hear the actress speak about her tough childhood, her complexities and insecurities, and the most precious gift she’s given her friend – Nimisha Pandey.

In the video the actress shares how at times she blames herself for the financial loss her father bared right after she was born, the reason why she can’t stand jokes made on her, the time when her mother couldn’t afford to buy her a sword and made do with a cardboard cut-out of it, how she looked forward to all her cousins birthday’s only to get return gifts and the significance of a paper boat in her life.

While her family didn’t have enough money to buy return gifts for Arti’s birthday, she took it upon herself to make one. From the pages of a notebook, she made several paper boats to give as return gifts but tore them immediately out of shame. Many years later when Arti made it to the industry, she made a paper boat, got it framed and gave it to her friend Nimisha, saying, ‘Only you deserve this boat!’

We have gotten our hands on the exact boat that Arti was talking about as the actress shared it on her social media page, you can check the video and the gift below –
