I finished my graduation and decided to join a teacher's course and teach, but destiny had other plans for me. I was invited to a Kavi Sammelan in Bombay…

Kavi Pradeep

I chose to write about all these different kinds of love. The saint-poetess Mirabai wasn't married to Krishna but she loved him and spent her life singing about him...

Kavi Pradeep

Nobody normally would advise one to take to poetry. It was a common belief that writing poetry would not feed a person.

Vairamuthu

I was brought up in a lower middle class Tamil family with the usual poverty, hopes and frustrations peculiar to a Tamil youth.

Vairamuthu

My faith helped me pursue my interest.

Vairamuthu

Inspiration is from my life, my land, my people and their sorrow.

Vairamuthu

Forty years have passed by but I am yet to sever my umbilical cord from my village.

Vairamuthu

I feel that with Mani Ratnam, there are no hits or flops; only films that have been understood or not understood.

Vairamuthu

My relationship with my land, my people, the mountains, the birds, the flora and fauna would always continue.

Vairamuthu

I read a lot and have a healthy interaction with youngsters. The body might age, but the mind never ages — I never let that happen to me.

Vairamuthu

I enjoy Urdu poetry. I come from a family which has that Urdu literature background.

Kausar Munir

To crack this very simple yet catchy and populist vibe is hard, and I don't understand the game of hits and flops.

Kausar Munir

I enjoy traditional culture. I suppose those varied personality traits that I have naturally and organically lend to the songs.

Kausar Munir

People feel that I think in English and that I must be good with Urdu because of my name. All this is not true. For me, it is all hearsay.

Kausar Munir

I am not trained in Urdu but I come from a family that spoke the language. Since childhood I was good at writing essays in Hindi, but my teachers would often comment that I must not use many Urdu words.

Kausar Munir

It wasn’t a decision that I took overnight. Earlier too I had made an unsuccessful attempt at production, but this time around, along with my partner Prem Prakash Gupta, I am getting into this in a big way.

Faaiz Anwar

Of course you cannot write with the pressure cooker whistling and the bell ringing, but I love my life. 

Kausar Munir

Sometimes I too write lyrics just for fun and to appease the producer and director. I too have to survive in the changing times and have no other alternative.

Faaiz Anwar

These days many lyricists have started emerging in the film industry, but he feels they are not quite aware of the art of lyric writing.

Faaiz Anwar

I’m particularly proud and grateful for the example that my mother has always set.

Chelsea Clinton

The BJP is running a malicious ugly whisper campaign to malign Congress party's senior-most leaders. Kamal Nath is not only one of the most experienced leaders of the party but has been the architect of the strategy and narrative of the Congress through challenging times.

Randeep Surjewala

If you care about equity or economic justice or gender equality you have to care about childhood obesity.

Chelsea Clinton

It’s always better to get caught trying than to have never tried at all.

Chelsea Clinton

No one’s mother is currently president, but someday, someone’s will be.

Chelsea Clinton

I still feel I was more talented than those Russians who won three medals at the Olympics. We are still awaiting one in Athletics, hopefully, that day will come soon.

Anju Bobby George

During my time, there were three Russians  ahead of me and they were winnings almost everything. But they have been suspended now and  we have a better picture of how they achieved it. 

Anju Bobby George

Winning a medal is difficult in athletics. But I expect a lot them to reach the finals of the events. I expect several of them to do so. I think by the 2024 Olympics, we can reach near to a medal.

Anju Bobby George

We are in the process of finalizing the land for the academy and the project will get underway once the procedure are complete.

Anju Bobby George

The timings of the men's 4x400 metre relay team is only behind the US this season. I expect them to reach the final. If they give the same performance there, they will definitely be in the final. They are a great team and I am sure they will make the country very proud.

Anju Bobby George

For those three years — 2003, 04 and 05, I was one of the best in the world. I knew everyone ahead of me was doing it (doping), but I was helpless because I couldn't prove it. I always had my doubts about Kotova.

Anju Bobby George

Athletics, as you all know, is the mother of all sports. We have to really work hard. There are a lot of things involved. We need real talent and real support and competitive management is where we are lacking.

Anju Bobby George

But I am proud that I stood up. Only the top-eight athletes in the world can participate in this event. Looking at the line-up I competed against I can say that I am like the world champion.

Anju Bobby George

We are not able to find big talents now. Maybe in future.

Anju Bobby George

Though I was a very little child when I first saw it, the story really touched me. The way she translated it (the role) into herself… left an impression on my really young mind.

Meesha Shafi

At the highest level of planning in Indian government, efforts are on that neither the government nor its agencies will have interference in international arbitration process. In my view, the zero interference by the government will further boost confidence of traders in arbitration in the country.

Jagdish Singh Khehar

I was extremely athletic throughout school. I’m very passionate about a lot of sports and love exercise and being physically active. I was on pretty much every team and was a competitive swimmer and a gold medalist in diving.

Meesha Shafi

A lot of people don’t realise this, but a lot of hard work goes into getting where you are before finally being noticed.

Meesha Shafi

I definitely feel extremely flattered. It gives me great pride to represent the world’s largest beauty brand and to know that they chose me to communicate to thousands of beautiful women across the country.

Meesha Shafi

I aspire to write in the future. Again, that also stems from my need to communicate and express myself. If I feel really ambitious, I will probably illustrate my writings myself as well.

Meesha Shafi

I use my performances to emote various moods. Sometimes through different avatars/roles and other times as myself, acting and singing both are tools that let me communicate the humour, love, anger and drama that travels within me.

Meesha Shafi

The campaign is really important to me because I have reach, people watch me or hear me, and I wanted to put that reach to good use. I have not been abused, but that doesn’t mean I cannot feel someone else’s pain. I know people who have faced abuse.

Meesha Shafi

I now incorporate my practice into my schedule wherever I go. Getting myself a great travel mat (for yoga) was a good call... I've even started doing yoga on long-haul flights... After making sure everyone around me is asleep or hasn't recognised me.

Meesha Shafi

For a nation that is alarmingly agreeable when it comes to denying itself the wealth of the cultural heritage at its disposal — a birthright many other young nations cannot boast of — we just can’t seem to keep music down.

Meesha Shafi

But two years ago, I began yoga and I often find myself sitting in a cross- legged, lotus position with my hands on my knees, palms facing upwards, trying to focus on being upright, silent and mindful of the present, both figuratively and physically while struggling with an avalanche of thoughts that clutter my head.

Meesha Shafi

Pakistani music is irresistible. Not just to my countrywomen and men, but also to our neighbours to the East — who are saturated with Bollywood masala mixes — to desis in Englistan, patrons in Europe and the expat diaspora across the pond.

Meesha Shafi

My daily practice begins with about 15 to 20 minutes of varied forms of deep breathing and meditation.

Meesha Shafi

My major writing happened when I was with science.

Jayanth Kaikini

I have been writing right from my PUC days. I did my post graduation in biochemistry and even at that time I was reading and writing in Kannada.

Jayanth Kaikini

After my post graduation, I went to Bombay in 1976 and worked there in a pharmaceutical industry called Procter & Gamble as a chemist for almost 23 years. Since then I have been writing.

Jayanth Kaikini

Even when we were shooting in Lucknow I loved the sound of it. I'm speaking for myself. Be it any religious activity, be it any gurudwaras, temples or mosques I love them. I visit all these places. We even go for Christmas mass.

Kangana Ranaut

I am glad to work with a composer like Himeshji who understands the importance of lyrics in songs and blends them brilliant melodies. I wouldn’t have been what I am today if it wasn’t for both Himeshji and Salman bhai.

Shabbir Ahmed (Lyricist)

I openly speak about having Salman Khan as my godfather in the industry. His immense support and faith in my work has taken me to great heights in my career.

Shabbir Ahmed (Lyricist)

I have never regretted any decision that I have taken so far in my career.

Shabbir Ahmed (Lyricist)

At times, when I have created something, the makers or the producers have not accepted it, but that's a part of my profession.

Shabbir Ahmed (Lyricist)

I was a victim of chubbisity (childhood obesity) and low self-esteem; it obviously wasn't a great experience.

Upasana Kamineni

People who give these suggestions give it for the betterment of the product and that's fine.

Shabbir Ahmed (Lyricist)

My Everest was losing weight and I'm mighty humbled that people now see me as an inspiration

Upasana Kamineni

Well, my grandfather, my father and my aunts were a huge influence, and thatha (grandfather) would even bring me into meetings.

Upasana Kamineni

I couldn't have done it (loosing weight) without the support of my family especially my dad and husband. I took it upon myself to fight this battle, both for myself as well as hundreds of kids fighting this syndrome.

Upasana Kamineni

I’ve been in and out of Apollo since I was a child, but as I entered my teens, a sort of rebellion set in. So I decided I wanted to get into fashion—but I soon realised that I’m a better shopper than a designer!

Upasana Kamineni

Oh my god, I really didn't think the media would be so intrusive.Yes, I certainly changed. I became more conscious and aware of my behaviour.I don't want to be reckless and not care.

Upasana Kamineni

My dad always told me, ‘Even if you become a ditch digger, make sure you are the best.’

Upasana Kamineni

My in-laws are the most humble people I've met. And not just the family , everyone around Ram took such good care of me, when I felt like I was being thrown off balance with the constant scrutiny that I was subjected to post marriage. Of course, without Charan and his family's support, it wouldn't be as easy as it has been.

Upasana Kamineni

I can’t be choosy here. I am fond of both the mediums equally. Both are quite distinct. In theatre for instance, the actor has to make sure that he has the attention of the person sitting in the last row. So whatever needs to be done has to be loud. In films, you have the camera positioned at various angles and an actor therefore must know how to emote without overdoing it.

Sanjay Narvekar

I was told by many people that Hindi theatre lacks the energy and vitality that is an intrinsic part of the Marathi stage. 

Sanjay Narvekar

I would have become a Cricketer or a Footballer as I was good at these games.

Sanjay Narvekar

It was all by chance, as one may call it. I was made to stand in place of other actor who backed out at the eleventh hour,while I was in college and that first appearance itself educated me about acting.

Sanjay Narvekar

In Marathi cinema, ‘script is the hero’. Stronger the script, better and effective the presentation.

Hemant Dhome

I am excited. But, at the same time, I am little nervous, thinking, as to how the audience would respond to my performance. It is a big project of Gautam dada and I am glad to be a part of this film, that too in the lead role.

Hemant Dhome

While pursuing a masters in wildlife conservation in the United Kingdom, I visited Buckingham Palace and saw the Queen’s bedroom, which is from 1236, almost 400 years before Chhatrapati Shivaji. That is when I began thinking about the subject. There are 375 forts in Maharashtra and not a single one of them, not even the main one in Raigad, is properly maintained.

Hemant Dhome

The most difficult part of the shoot was carrying all the equipment to the top and having crew members climb up and down.

Hemant Dhome

It’s been a great learning experience with a bunch of good actors. Feel happy to be associated with such a big show (Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai).

Anshul Pandey

When I started going out with Kshitee (actor Kshitee Jog), my sister Sonali was my biggest saviour. Sonali would help me arrange meetings with Kshitee and even manage to hide it from my parents. And she was the one who convinced my parents for the marriage. Though Sonali is five years younger to me, she has been the one to help me out of sticky situations.

Hemant Dhome

I read, listen to music and watch movies on my laptop.

Anshul Pandey

Yes, Devyani has two grown-up kids, and they will be revealed. But I have no idea on how the story will progress.

Kshitee Jog

We have no clue when did it happen. In our building, we can park only one car; hence we parked my car in the nearby area. The next, while going out for shooting I realized that my vehicle is missing. Later on, when my husband went to the police station to report about it, he found that one of our neighbours in the next building had met with the same fate previous night.

Kshitee Jog

Well, I am in talks for the show. All I know is it will be a new and important character. Let’s see how things shape up.

Anshul Pandey

I am happy with the leap as earlier I lost my action in the show. But now I am happy to get focus once again and to shower my talent and act with the show.

Anshul Pandey

Television shows have always been the same. It brings you in action and then gets you out giving a chance to other cast. So I never had problem even when I got nothing much to essay. I am happy that channel and production made me a part of the show.

Anshul Pandey

I don’t exactly remember, when I took interest in writing. May be, after I shifted to Mumbai.

Jitendra Joshi

Prior to acting, as a youngster I have done lots of hard work expected from any active young boy; like distributing the newspapers and working in a shop. Basically, I am an electrician and during my young days used to run the shop of my uncle.

Jitendra Joshi

I consider this as my luck to be able to work in this film. Most of the time especially in Marathi films there are many big budget films where budget can be seen only on paper. While watching that movie on screen does not present any budget at all. That is not the case with Baji. In Baji you can see where the money has been spent.

Jitendra Joshi

Some directors are good in improvisation, some are good in story-telling, and some can do amazing shot division. Nikhil is master in all these things. He knows what will be clicked at the box office.

Jitendra Joshi

Police personnel will be in plain clothes, this does not include questioning people. The personnel on duty for anti-Romeo squads will act and take action only on people with objectionable behavior.

Sulkhan Singh

Those indulging in 'gundagardi' and criminal activities will be dealt without mercy. They cannot escape. And even VIPs will not be spared.

Sulkhan Singh

Uniform action will be taken against any wrongdoer. There will be no bias, whosoever the culprit is or whatever political connection the person flaunts.

Sulkhan Singh

The police will get a free hand in controlling crime and maintaining law and order with firmness and tact.

Sulkhan Singh

I had taken the car out for a spin alone the day it was delivered. Nobody clicked any pictures then.

Sushant Singh Rajput

Those indulging in gundagardi and criminal activities will be dealt without mercy. Even VIPs will not be spared.

Sulkhan Singh

My effort will be ensuring unbiased policing and keeping the morale of the force high. 

Sulkhan Singh

The personnel on duty for anti-Romeo squads will act and take action only on people with objectionable behavior.

Sulkhan Singh

I have to prove my worth during this period. 

Sulkhan Singh

Fair inquiry will be done in all cases. 

Sulkhan Singh

The court will do its own work and we will respect the verdict of the court in the case (Ram Temple).

Giriraj Singh

People who are accused in the Babri Masjid case are innocent in the eyes of the public.

Giriraj Singh

Such a thing can be said only by a man with a mosquito’s brain. His government spent `526 crore on publicity of his party and its leaders instead of telling people how to fight against dengue and chikungunya.

Meenakshi Lekhi

As usual, he is passing the responsibility on others. Being the chief minister, he is supposed to facilitate the municipal corporations if they needed any help.

Sheila Dikshit

Police should avoid high-handedness as every citizen belongs to the state. No one is an outsider.

Sulkhan Singh

I see no reason why someone should feel that a particular segment of society is unable to vote for them. We should see who does not vote for us & find why and see if it can be addressed. Don’t know from where has ‘sanctity’ come in.

Salman Khurshid

We (BJP) gave them sanctity? Who are ‘we’? It is the constitution that has given rights, our rights are protected under that.
