stands falsely accused of killing the president and while theres still a chanceId like to celebrate a small but significant milestone For six more weekstwo of the strongest and most interesting female leads on television are being played by Asian-American actresses Im talking about Maggie Qfinishing her turn as Nikitaand Lucy Liuin her second season as Joan Watson on CBSs Elementarywhere she is every bit as central as Johnny Lee Millers Sherlock Holmes Both shows have their formulaic elementsbut Nikita and Joan are non-cartoonishreasonably complexmultidimensional charactersand in prime timethere arent too many actresses getting that kind of opportunity in a lead role Of coursethat broader look also indicates that the overall picture for Asian actresses isnt so happy A lot of them are workingbut in roles far down the food chain from Nikita and Watsonand often playing characters conceived or shaped to reflect longstanding stereotypes about Asians Even Maggie Q and Liu havent completely escaped those archetypes Both are playing the latest iterations of durable characters traditionally inhabited by white performersso it would seem that race shouldnt have any particular bearing But the truth is that they resonate with two of the most common sets of images or clichés about Asian women: the high-achievingsocially awkward Dr Joan Watson is a refined example of the sexy nerdand the lethalsometimes icy Nikitaable to dispense violence while wearing tightmicroscopic outfitsevokes a long line of dragon ladies and ninja killers In both casesthoughthe actresses and their writers have avoided or transcended easy stereotypes A lot of effort has gone into humanising Nikita In ElementaryWatson has embraced her role as apprentice detective after suffering a catastrophic failure as a doctortaking some of the shine off her super-competence There are other actresses playing less evolved versions of the Nikita-style action hero Ming-Na Wens Melinda Maythe black-leather-jacketed pilot in Marvels Agents of SHIELD (ABC)is a stoic enforcer with a dragon-lady vibe; Grace Parks Kono Kalakaua on Hawaii Five-0 (CBS) is equally lethal but favours bikinis and

hypercompetitivesocially awkward doctor whose race is matter of fact because theres so much more to know about her Yangalong with Watson and Nikitacould be considered exceptions that prove a rulebut I

a story one that 71-year-old Suresh Kumar has preserved in his heart and negatives for years His desk at the studio Indiano in Sector 17 is filled with files and boxes marked ‘Rock Garden’ as over the last few weeks Kumar a photographer by passion and chronicler of Chandigarh in many ways has been sorting out photographs of Nek Chand at the Rock Garden It is a painstaking effort for many reasons one that were thousands of negatives to sort out choose from finish and to frame but more because each picture of Nek Chand is close to Kumar’s heart for they not only shared a fantastic work relationship but a special friendship and bond that went back years As many as 96 rare photographs of Kumar have been showcased as part of a retrospective on Nek Chand at the Phase 3 of the Rock Garden on his second death anniversary and it’s a rare documentation that Kumar has done simply out of his love for Rock Garden and its creator “It will take us days to see all the photographs I have I think I began in 1973 when it was still a secret space and every time someone entered there would be drum beating to warn Nek Chand and the workers that outsiders were approaching” says Sharma adding that he would capture every new development in the garden with many angles not possible now as so much has changed With no digital cameras then wide shots were tough to take “Many of the photographs here are unseen and it’s a treasure that Kumar has We have probably used just 15 per cent of the work here dividing the showcase into sections highlighting the making of the Rock Garden in the early days a phase when Nek Chand worked a lot with cloth making rag dolls his portraits in younger days and at work here wood models et al For many of us the showcase would be a chance to go back

Ananya Vajpeyi/Facebook) Top News The clash of ideologies between two student groups at the Jawaharlal Nehru University last year now seems to have spilled over to the Delhi University north campus Today a clash broke out between Left students and those from the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad after invitation to JNU scholar Umar Khalid and Left student leader from JNU Shehla Rashid Shora for a seminar at Ramjas college was cancelled Policemen were unable to control the rowdy crowds and spectators and journalists were also among the people caught in the clash and many were beaten up At least 20 students were reportedly injured after the clash WATCH VIDEO |Minister Of State Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju Reacts To Delhi’s Ramjas College Protest Says Freedom Of Speech Should Not Be Exploited Umar Khalid came under spotlight when he was accused for sedition last year after the February 9 incident in the university The Ramjas Literary Society had organised a two-day seminar ‘Culture of Protest’ Umar who calls himself an Ambedkarite and is part of Ambedkarite student group BASO was a speaker along with Shehla who is part of Leftist student group All India Students Association (AISA) But reportedly the RSS- and BJP-backed ABVP protested and subsequently their lectures were cancelled The Left students and some teachers were protesting against the cancellation when a group of ABVP members came and a clash broke out between the two groups The group from JNU went to a police station as well alleging vandalism by ABVP WATCH VIDEO |Police Deployment Outside Delhi’s Ramjas College Following Protests Classes Suspended Members of AISA said that ABVP members pelted stones at them and shut the seminar hall They further claimed that ABVP students cut power supply ABVP has denied all allegations levelled on its members Shehla told reporters that they were attacked and ABVP members pelted bricks at them She said many were bleeding due to injuries they suffered at the hands of the ABVP The ABVP denied these claims as well and said that they did not have any part in the cancellation of Umar’s and Shehla’s talks ABVP leader Abhishek Verma claimed that there was no violence and the college students and teachers didn’t want Umar Khalid to speak WATCH VIDEO |Umar Khalid Event Row: ABVP AISA Members Others Detained Following Ramjas College Protests According to Indiasamvad Ramjas college principal Rajender Prasad said “While the seminar will continue we decided to cancel the participation of these two students It is not that we do not advocate freedom of speech but it had to be done keeping peace and harmony of campus in mind” Umar Khalid was charged with sedition and jailed last year for his alleged role in an event in JNU in which anti-India slogans were reportedly raised The tussle between the ABVP and Left-leaning students leaders is not new The Right-wing student organisation obviously doesn’t hold much support or numbers in JNU and in its students union In the past year there have been other incidents as well where both groups have clashed and physical violence is not new to this tussle The only difference this time is that the incident moved out of the JNU campus But the principal’s statement shows that there is still an element of fear/prejudice against some students from JNU or belonging to a certain ideology and it is seen as convenient to clamp down rather than letting free discourse take its way Same has been seen in JNU where its famed culture of protest on a myriad number of issues is being curbed by the JNU administration For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Mehak Arora | New Delhi | Published: June 12 2017 9:29 pm Yeh Hai
