first_imgNew Delhi, Nov 2 (PTI) Two-time Paralympics gold medallist Devendra Jhajharia is hopeful of emulating his past success if he takes part in the next edition of the Games.At present, he is the only Indian to win two gold medals at the Paralympics. The 36-year-old won a gold in the javelin F44/46 event in the 2004 Paralympics and added another yellow metal in the 2016 Games in the F46 category.He said he wants to maintain his fitness so that he can compete in the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo.”At the moment, 2020 is a better option for me. If I am fit, then I will definitely play the next edition of Paralympics and win a gold medal for the country,” he told PTI on sidelines of the launch event of Sports: A Way of Life programme here.Jhajharia became the first Indian Paralympian to be bestowed the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award earlier this year.He said the award belonged to all the differently-abled children who are living with a dream.”I think that was not an award solely for me. That was for every other differently abled child who is living with a dream. Everyone had a hope that Devendra will get the award one or the other day. It was a big boost for all,” he said.”I dedicate this award to all the differently abled people,” Jhajharia added.Jhajharia further talked about his daily routine and said theres no Sunday off for him.”Nowadays, I am attending programmes and training as well. There is balance which has to be maintained. Firstly, there is no more Sunday rest for me.

Films are not charity or NGOs: Anurag Kashyap

first_img(Eds: Correcting typos in headline)New Delhi, Jan 10 (PTI) Films loaded with social message may be the trend in the industry but Anurag Kashyap believes filmmakers should not be expected to deliver a message through their movies.The director, whose upcoming film “Mukkabaaz” promotes sports in its own way, said as a filmmaker his aim is never to address a social issue.”Films are not supposed to give a message. A film is not a charity or an NGO. We have been making love stories since forever but people still dont know how to love.”Even if a film gives a message, people clap for a moment and then forget. As a filmmaker, I dont believe in giving a message. The only time I gave a message in my film was in Black Friday,” Kashyap said in a group interview here.The director said “Mukkabaaz” may be a pro-sports films, but it is not an “advertisement” for boxing.”It is a film which shows us a mirror. What people take from it depends on them.”The film has been given a U/A certificate by the CBFC and Kashyap yesterday praised censor board chief Prasoon Joshi for a “reasonable, rational and empowering experience”.While the CBFC was criticised for suggesting modifications in Bhansalis “Padmavat”, including a title change, Kashyap said he believes in speaking against or for any authority, based on his “personal experiences”.”Padmavat getting modifications is not my personal experience with CBFC. I have had my own experiences with the censor board. It was my first experience with Prasoon and I was literally given the space and respect a filmmaker should get. I was given the space to explain the context of the things in my film and it has never happened before.advertisement”What Padmavati went through only Bhansali knows. My personal experience has been great (this time). I have always said the CBFC is not supposed to cut the film. I still believe in that and we are heading towards it. It is going to be a long process.”Kashyap said being the head of CBFC is not an easy job and he would never want to be in that situation.”Prasoons position is not an easy place to be in. He will be accused of a lot of things and by the end of it, will lose a lot of friends. I would never want to be in such a position.”If something wrong happens I criticise it, but when something good has happened, I am suppose to praise it as well,” he said.
