Media was informed in advance?

The presence of media in large numbers, particularly channels like ETV and TV9 is raising suspicion that they knew some big development that was likely to happen at Mudigonda.

Mudigonda is a small mandal headquarter, one among thousands of mandals in the state. So how come the channels were present in advance before the incident took place. The place is also far off from Hyderabad, over 250 kms to be precise.

Even Vijayawada is a good two hours journey from Mudigonda. Therefore it is not possible for them to say that they rushed the team immediately. No channel has the wherewithal and equipment to cover each and every mandal let lone a district.

So it obvious that the incident was a pre-planned one and it was done with the intention of embarrassing the Y S Rajashekar Reddy government.

Technique behind Sivaji-The Boss

In this article we will explain the technique behind Super Star Rajini's European complexion in the film 'Sivaji - The Boss' (Style Song). The film "Sivaji The Boss" starring super star Rajinikant is the costliest film made in India to date. Directed by S.Shanker, Cinematography by K.V.Anand, Music by A.R.Rahman, Produced by A.V.M Productions and VFX supervised by Indian Artists (V.Srinivas M Mohan - VFX supervisor and T.K. JayaKumar - Partner)

Rajini is well known actor worldwide. People call him “Super Star” because of his unique style. He is the 2nd highest paid actor in Asia after Jackie chan.

In this film, director Shanker wanted to change Rajini's wheatish complexion to a white European complexion. As a visual effects company (Indian Artists) this was a challenging task for us because we guess nobody has executed this type of concept in the world. Thanks to Mr. Shanker for giving us this opportunity to execute his brilliant idea.

Technique behind Dark Skin to Fair Skin

To begin with, we (Indian artists) did an in-depth study of the European complexion. We found that white skin reflects more light and has less shadow when compared to dark skin and is translucent in some areas. Therefore a simple color correction of the hero's skin would not achieve the desired effect.

For the shoot a London based young white lady with a fresh complexion and flushed cheeks was chosen and with the help of Cinematographer Mr. K.V.Anand every single shot of the hero was repeated with her because lighting conditions change in every shot. After the final edit all the 630 hero shots and 630 girl shots were scanned in 4K resolution. Each of the 9000 scanned frames were rotoscoped to separate the body parts (face, hands, legs etc.). The white lady's skin was mapped onto the Super Star's image using Eyeon “Digital Fusion” software. Thus the Super Star got his glowing white complexion.

There were two difficult aspects in this project. One was matching the girl's action with the hero's action and the second was matching both of their body proportions during mapping

Though it sounds simple, the work involved was laborious and painstaking. Great attention was paid to detail right from the shoot until the final print. It has taken 25 dedicated CG technicians almost a year to achieve this 6 ½ min. feat.

English Error

In India, we have over a dozen official languages and countless local dialects. So how does a farmer from Bihar speak with a fisherman from Kerala The answer, for now, is 'not easily'.
One day, however, all Indians will use English as a first, second or third language. This will allow them to communicate effectively not only with other Indians, but also the rest of the world.

Of course, getting to that point won't be easy. For most of us, English is still a challenge. With all its irregularities, exceptions and rules, English is a very difficult language to master.

With that in mind, rediff.com presents our English Bloopers series. Here, we publish written and spoken mistakes spotted and sent to us by observant Get Ahead readers. It's a great way to review the basics, clarify a few issues and share a laugh or two! So, stop by each Monday, Wednesday and Friday for another fresh batch of English Bloopers

Nikhlesh Mathur notices a few mistakes that arise from our fluency in Hindi:

Most North Indians are definitely better in the Hindi language than we are in the English language. Problems arise when we speak English words with a Hindi accent. Look at the the word 'genuine'. The tendency to pronounce this word as 'genine' is incorrect. The twist of the tongue at the right moment is neccesary to pronounce 'u' in the word 'genuine'.

When the word 'cost' is written in the Hindi language, a half moon curve is correctly marked over the the Hindi letter 'Ka'. Therefour, most of us pronounce 'cost' as 'cast' while speaking. Both 'cost' and 'cast' are English words but have entirely different meanings.

He says, 'If you find any gaffes in my corrections, blame it on my English teacher!'
Wrong: He is calling to you
he 'to' is not needed in this statment. You could either remove the 'to' or replace it with 'for'.

Correct: He is calling you.
Wrong: Say me the truth!

This is especially prevalent in Andhra Pradesh. It should be 'tell'.

Correct: Tell me the truth
Wrong: The real fact is that you are not married.This is redundant, because a fact is true or provable. Therefore, all facts are real.
Correct: The fact is that you are not married.
Wrong: GovnermentWrong: Agnaist Wrong: Envornament.

These are common mistakes that can be heard in call centres in Hyderabad. The employees have trouble pronouncing words such as, '
Government', 'Against' and 'Environment'.

Correct: Government
Correct: Against
Correct: Environment
Wrong: Fathers name
Wrong: Martial statusI

often come across these common mistakes in resumes or cover letters. 'Fathers name' implies more than one father while 'Martial status' implies military rule.
Correct: Father's nameCorrect: Marital status
Ramamurthy Sridhar, from Hyderabad, sent these three bloopers.Wrong: I am having a lovely family.This type of error is easy to hear in India. We use the present continuous tense in place of the present simple tense.Correct: I have a lovely family.Wrong: This vehicle is dead cheap.When a product is very cheap, a lot of us say it is 'dead cheap'. Actually, the phrase is 'dirt cheap'.Correct: This vehicle is dirt cheap. Wrong: It will be a very cut and right report.The proper phrase is 'cut and dry' or 'cut and dried'. It means that something is settled or routine. Correct: It will be a very cut and dried report.

Salman on Rajinikanth

Salman claims to be inspired by Rajnikanth's magnanimity . "I want to do what he is doing . Whatever he earns, he is giving back to the people ," said Salman.

Thus inspired, he intends to raise funds for his Salman Khan Foundation that goes to support a number of charitable causes through his own efforts because he dislikes depending on others for money.

"Through my movies, my shows, my paintings, I wanna reach out to people. If anybody volunteers, I will accept donations, but I am certainly not begging for funds," he said with conviction.

He talked about marriage. Or, rather, the rumours of him getting married on his birthday around Christmas, this year. "The day I get married, or decide to, I will let the world know," he said in exasperation, adding, "Of course, I intend to get married, but it will happen only when it's destined to. And I will celebrate the occasion with my friends, family and well-wishers . I won't hide my marriage because I need people's blessings and good wishes always."

Charminar is always on the top of the mind of any tourist visiting Hyderabad. To say that Charminar is a major landmark in the city is to state the obvious, to repeat a cliché. The great monument is a synonym for Hyderabad and the pivot around which the glory and history of the city have developed. To imagine this 400-year-old city without Charminar is to imagine New York without the Statue of Liberty or Moscow without the Kremlin. Built by Mohammed Quli Qutub Shah in 1591, shortly after he had shifted his capital from Golkonda to what now is known as Hyderabad, this beautiful colossus in granite, lime, mortar and, some say, pulverised marble, was at one time the heart of the city.
This great tribute to aesthetics looks sturdy and solid from a distance but as one moves closer, it emerges as an elegant and romantic edifice proclaiming its architectural eminence in all its detail and dignity. Apart from being the core of the city’s cultural milieu, it has become a brand name.
Charminar is a squarish structure with four towers in the four corners of the square, each of whose sides is 20 metres in length. Every side opens into a plaza through giant arches, which overlook four major thoroughfares and dwarf other features of the building except the minarets. Each arch is 11 metres wide and rises 20 metres to the pinnacle from the plinth. The minarets soar skywards by 24 metres from the roof of Charminar. Each minaret has four storeys, each looking like a delicately carved ring around the minaret. Some Anglophiles call Charminar the Arc de Triomphe of the East. From the ground to the apex, the minarets cover a length of 48.7 metres.
According to Mir Moazzam Husain, a long time official of the UNESCO and a keen student of this historic city, “these minarets may even symbolise the first four khalifs of Islam, but I cannot vouch for this interpretation with any degree of certainty.” At the western end of the roof of Charminar is a beautiful mosque; the oldest in Hyderabad, and the rest of the roof was used as a court in Qutub Shahi times. Atop the great monument are 45 prayer spaces for the devout where they can offer worship in an atmosphere unspoilt by the bustle of the city. East of this space is a spacious verandah with small and large arches in the middle. The first floor has beautiful balconies from where one has a fantastic view of the historic city and its later accretions.
