He says our family cannot afford the same."

Rains bring smile on our faces, but excessive shower brings pain. Anil Gulati speaks to child reporters in Madhya Pradesh on their views on rainfall and its effects

Rains bring smile, cheers, on our faces, but when it rains, and rains and rains, it brings pain. Rains in Madhya Pradesh though were delayed initially but later on recovered. As of date Madhya Pradesh had 9 % excess of rainfall. Some pockets of the state are extremely wet, have been flooded and few are still dry, wanting rains.


Media normally covers stories of people who get affected by both situation but somewhere children get missed out. But what do they think?

Yashpal Tiwari is a class nine student from Hoshangabad district which has two main rivers, namely Narmada and Tawa. There has been an increase in water levels of the rivers. Parts of the district have witnessed floods.

"It is good to see rains but I feel bad when water due to excess rains enter houses like it has happened in villages in our district. Why can’t we stop that and let’s only have enjoyable rains?" asked Tiwari.

His friend Rohan from the same district said: "Why can’t we just dig a ‘big hole’ and put excess water in it?"

The only person I know well is Ranbir’ 09/05/2012

US-born Rockstar girl and model Nargis Fakhri loves jewellery and Bollywood dance. TWF correspondent Sreya Basu chats up with the actor at the launch of The Gaja Store in Mumbai

You have taken up quite a few modeling assignments. What about films after Rockstar?

Yes, I am doing a lot of events, brands and magazines. I have been reading a lot of scripts and I have taken my time. And now I feel I have found what I love doing (and that is, acting) …so everything is coming along. I believe in patience. Whatever comes my way, if I want to do it, I will do it. If I don’t want to do it, I clearly say ‘No’.

How is your Hindi tuition going?

Everything takes time…nothing happens overnight. I was plucked out of the sky and put here (Bollywood). So it’s taking time. But it’s going well and I am really happy. I am reading and writing (Hindi), which is great. And when I can read what I am writing in Hindi I feel ecstatic.

We heard you ar...
