ANI LUDHIANA | TUESDAY | 2 OCTOBER 2018 Love travels FAR & WIDE RAAHAT SARPAL An eye for an eye would leave the world blind, believed Mahatma Gandhi. But the way our society is moving, violence seems to be the order of the day. So, are the great man’s words relevant today? Youngsters share their views on Gandhi Jayanti Wise words resonate Jasmine Singh Simplicity and non-violence, a way of living propagated by Mahatma Gandhi, have been reduced to words or maybe subjects for a film nowadays. Mob lynching, molestation, rape, riots; an eye for an eye is the mantra! So, where does Gandhiji’s ahimsa fit in? Has the principle lost value for the younger generation? Are his teachings confined to just textbooks now? On Gandhi Jayanti today, which has been reduced to a mere holiday, youngsters from tricity share their take DIRTY POLITICS Ishan Turki, journalism student While Mahatma Gandhi was a leader who symbolised change, where common people came together to do extraordinary things, we seem to have forgotten his teachings. Aam Aadmi Party was an example of common man standing up for change, but everything is lost when dirty politics takes over the real agenda. If only we understand and stick to Gandhi’s principle, we can look forward to a better country. VIABILITY FACTOR Raahat Sarpal, mass communication student Mahatma Gandhi advocated self-sufficiency; do you think being self-sufficient is viable in today’s times? Can we cut ourselves off from the rest of the world? And well, even if we think we can, do we have the resources to do so. In a country, where school kids are not secure, where religion is given precedence over medical care, can we talk about words like self-sustenance? Jasmine Singh F OR many, Aayush Sharma is popular Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s brother-inlaw, who is making his debut with Loveyatri. All his interviews have a dedicated mention of Salman and wife, Arpita. However, minutes down the conversation with the actor and his co-star Warina Hussain in Chandigarh, you notice a mind of his own, a voice of his own and a charm of his own! The young artiste is all set to open his innings in Bollywood and he has a number of people to thank for this new beginning. The first one has to be Salman Khan! “It is true that Salman bhai offered me a lot of scripts before I settled for Loveyatri.” Two fresh faces of B-town, Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain, in Chandigarh for the promotion of their upcoming film Loveyatri, spread a lot of positive energy A Himachali-lad, Aayush was obviously not comfortable doing garba on screen. “I can do naati, but garba took me hours!” UNCANNY RESEMBLANCE An uncanny resemblance to the Salman Khan of Maine Pyar Kiya, Aayush knows what he is talking about; he is aware that he is being looked at as Salman’s broth- commercials before er–in-law! “I assisted Salman Loveyatri hapbhai in Tubelight, Bajrangi pened, “I am Bhaijaan and Sultan; he glad that I gave me a lot of on-the-set am maktraining. I trained in dancing, ing my martial arts, horse-riding and debut with more. Salman bhai told me Loveyatri. I three things — never take am proud of success seriously, work on my journey and your body and don’t wear the fact that after tight tees,” shares Aayush. struggle, I finally You can’t doubt, after all it have a project like this.” is wife Arpita who is han- Warina has Punjabi dling everything! “Arpita has friends and has been here a been with me on this journey couple of times before. from day one, she has been a huge support. Earlier, she was looking after the production and now she is the one who is looking SALMAN BHAI TOLD ME after the promotions,” Aayush smiles. THREE THINGS — NEVER TAKE ❝ FAMILY MAN SUCCESS SERIOUSLY, WORK ON YOUR BODY AND DON’T WEAR TIGHT TEES Father to a young kid, married and making his debut in Bollywood; the first two can cast a shadow on Aayush’s image as hero? He smiles, “The only superhero in the industry who isn’t married is Salman Khan; rest everyone is married. Shah Rukh Khan was married when he came into films and so was Aamir Khan, so I assume my being married is going to be a good omen.” LEADING LADY He looks at his co-actress, Warina Hussain, who despite her nationality, Afghani, is surprising everyone with her fluency in Hindi and Punjabi. A self-made actress, Warina moved to India a long time back; she did a lot of AAYUSH SHARMA On the working relationship with Aayush, the beauty has now found a true friend in Aayush. And Aayush too has something to give away here, “I had to do a photoshoot with her and was really scared; then we met for rehearsals and sessions, which helped me know her better and today she is my best friend.” PHOTO: NITIN MITTAL IT’S A FREE WORLD RELEVANCE HAS DECLINED Tapnoor Kaur, student Take Anna Hazare’s case; the man started the largest fight against corruption and where did it end? He did manage to get the attention of public and also the government, but what next! People who were a part of that campaign are now being criticised for being corrupt. Didn’t Anna Hazare follow Mahatma Gandhi’s Satyagraha, but what happened after that? I doubt if we can shake up the system by sitting on fasts. While some Gandhian teachings are relevant in today’s world, others are not. NOT APPLICABLE Harnoor, law student, PU I loved the film Munna Bhai MBBS, but wonder whether Gandhigiri is relevant or even applicable in the present set-up? Can non-violence be practised now? If yes then we should let Pakistan take away Kashmir! And, if yes, let China invade our territories. Why do we retaliate? This is because the entire country today cannot sit back and declare fast until death, simply because we are not living in a Gandhian era. Gandhiji used to say we shouldn’t discriminate on the basis of work, so take away the security politicians enjoy. They are our representatives, so let them be like us. Is it possible?
