World today is living in unprecedented space. The virus has brought lot many changes to our lives and has taught new ways of looking at life. Certainly world will never be the same as we emerge from current crisis.
Fact remains that virus has not spared anyone of us including dance teachers. This relatively changed the dynamics of dance education and learning system. Although some dance gurus have adopted new methodologies, many are still facing challenges to come out of adversity and adopt new ways of teaching through online. This brings us to the question of whether the New technological approach of teaching dance can be satisfying to Gurus. How difficult it is to hold students attention through zoom or via internet portals.
Practically many dance teachers are putting in extra time and energy in conducting those online classes. The process is bit different. It begins by preparing for classes, schedule meeting requests regularly, checking wifi speed, Check if Audio is working properly, ensure video is clear with proper lighting, repeat the steps if video gets paused during classes, record dance videos back for revision, inspect every student steps for corrections, edit the music, deal with unstable network issues and so on.
The new approach of teaching and learning will be challenging for students and dance teachers. It’s an approach that will require students, dance teachers, and the parents to remain fully invested and committed to the process of learning.
Since the virus is here to stay for long. Therefore its ideal that we dance teachers embrace new techniques and develop new pedagogical approaches in which traditional elements of dance curriculum is maintained and kept relevant.

8,000 Crore Shortfall In Central Funds: CM BS Yediyurappa In Karnataka Budget Speech
Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yedyiurappa (File)Bengaluru:
Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa presented the state budget, the seventh occasion he has done so, in the Assembly today. Mr Yediyurappa, who was sworn in as Chief Minister in July last year, after the dramatic fall of the 14-month-old Congress-Janata Dal Secular coalition government, began by praising some of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policies.
Following this the veteran BJP leader highlighted shortfall in funds the state had expected from the centre, with specific focus on the state’s share in central taxes under the 15th Finance Commission; this had reduced funding by more than Rs 8,000 crores.
A further Rs 11,000 crores is pending from GST (goods and services tax) collection by the centre; states had been promised compensation for a period of five years after GST was implemented in 2017 due to a loss of revenue. The shortfall comes despite the centre collecting over Rs 1 lakh crores in December, the fifth time it had crossed that mark in 2019.
Having raised these financial challenges at the start of his speech, the Chief Minister then revealed his plans for the farm sector, which was hit by both floods and drought last year.
In December last year the state government sent the centre an estimate of Rs 35,161 crores for damages from floods alone. The BJP government in the state was criticised by the opposition after PM Modi and the BJP-led centre were seen to be slow in responding.
BS Yediyurappa said agriculture and rehabilitation for those hit by floods will be top priority and acknowledged financial constraints this fiscal.

A summer camp or sleepaway camp is a supervised program for children or teenagers conducted during the summermonths in some countries. Children and adolescents who attend summer camp are known as campers. Summer school is usually a required academic curriculum for a student to make up work not accomplished during the academic year, whereas summer camps can include academic work, but is not a requirement for graduation.
The traditional view of a summer camp as a woody place with hiking, canoeing, and campfires is changing, with greater acceptance of newer types of summer camps that offer a wide variety of specialized activities. For example, there are camps for the performing arts, music, magic, computer programming, language learning, mathematics, children with special needs, and weight loss.
The primary purpose of many camps is educational, athletic, or cultural development. A summer camp environment may allow children to learn new skills in a safe and nurturing environment. Summer camp experience can have a lasting psychological impact on the development of a child.

Cricket’s biggest rivalry will take place at Manchester on 16th June. India will lock horns against the Arch-Rivals Pakistan. India would want to retain their winning streak but on the other hand Pakistan would want to end their losing streak against India in the world cup.
Although the skies weren’t completely clear, the weather forecast for Sunday’s game is promising. It is expected to be a little cloudy, but the chances of rain are minimal. It will be a welcome relief for both teams, who have already had washouts in their campaigns. Pakistan saw their game against Sri Lanka in Bristol ruined by rain while India’s match against New Zealand in Nottingham on Thursday suffered the same fate.
After Shikar Dhawan suffered a thumb injury, young Rishabh Pant has arrived at Manchester. Pant will not be a part of the squad and cannot play in any of the matches unless India officially rule Dhawan out of the World Cup. India, though, are not in any hurry to take that step. Assistant coach Sanjay Bangar on Wednesday explained that India do not want to rule out a ‘precious player’ like Dhawan so early, and are instead willing to give him time to recover.
In this world cup India has won 2 of the 3 matches while Pakistan has won only 1 of their 4 matches.
Pitch report at Manchester
The ball is certainly expected to turn and both teams should field their spinners for this clash. Also, the playing surface is usually pretty dry and crusty making the ball ample for reverse swing during the later stages of the innings.
The new ball doesn’t swing too much making this a good batting surface but the overcast conditions expected might turn the fixture to the favour of the bowler.
Head to head records
OverallPakistan lead 73-54 in 127 completed ODIs against India.
In World Cup:India, meanwhile have never lost to Pakistan in the World Cup and have a huge 6-0 lead over their rivals.
There are always some key players when it comes to big matches. For India the key players are Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Yuzavendra Chahal. For Pakistan they are Babar azam, Facker Zaman and Imam-ul-haq.
India would want both their batsmen and bowlers to fire like the game against Australia. Pakistan’s bowling has done okay but their batsmen need to go all guns blazing against India.
So let us expect one of the most challenging encounters in the history of the World Cup.
It’s been three years since we kicked Runners360 off in a modest way and to-date we have mentored over 350+ people right from couch to 5 K runners to seasoned runners Running their first Ultra Marathon or their fastest Marathon.
So firstly thank you all.. including the admins of this group who have made this virtual group 20,000+ strong Community.
With time we have evolved and understood that each Runner is unique and needs a bit of special care and now evolved with two modes of training:
General Fitness: This is for Beginners & Novices where you be a part of the group, learn the nuances of the sport with our 5-day / week Sessions at Cubbon Park & Jayanagar to set yourself up for greater possibilities in future. This program will also enable you to build a positive attitude towards life, stay stress free, help manage lifestyle issues … obesity and diabetes for example in addition to which you will gradually build yourself up to Running 10kms or even a half marathon with minimal chances of Injury.
Find Your Potential: This is for Runners who have Run a few races wherein we customize plans, be in constant touch and keep a closer watch on your progress to enable you find your true potential. We also work virtually in this mode and have people train with us across India and Outside India only through word of mouth. Under this program we have enabled 60 people run sub 4 Marathons and 4 sub 3 Marathoners. Commitment, Patience, & Trust is the Key under this program to succeed.
Please note we take limited numbers to ensure our quality is not diluted and the entire program will be overseen by myself along with various trainers.

Dear Soldier,While you have been defending the nation and the motherland without asking for anything in return, the man in the mirror is posing some serious questions to me in the backdrop of recent tragic incident. Question is “Do I deserve your supreme sacrifice?”.
I am an integral part of a nation where corruption is systemic. If not actively, I tolerate and in fact, softly celebrate the corrupt practices by passivity. I will not be surprised to soon discover the handy work of more than a few corrupt people living in this country being behind the enemy getting access to 100s of kilos of RDX. In the best case scenario, I may even discover that this corrupt person perhaps didn’t know the actual intent behind the accumulation of such large quantities of ammunition. Anyway, I will defend my actions with “Kuch lenge nahi to jindagi chalegi kaise?”, “Mehangaayi bhi to itni badh chuki hai”, “Uparwaale ko pahunchaanaa hai” and the list will go on.
Please don’t be shocked if I am part of the debate on one of the national TV channels attributing the incident to significant difference between haves and have-nots, inflation, ambition, left-right ideology, number of such incidents that took place in the past regime vs current regime. Frankly, the man in the mirror asks me, if I will care for you beyond this. Will I have the tiniest amount of your courage to stand against the officer asking me for a bribe next time? Will I have the guts to show him the picture of 40 of my soldiers who laid down their life due to a similar irresponsible act by another citizen of my country?
The criminals you are fighting against have every bit of information about me and you. They have access to sophisticated systems. I am willing to share the last inch of information on my body and soul with an unknown system that is monitoring every act of mine. However, if the state takes a step to link all the citizen information, I have a serious reservation to the same. Privacy of my information is more important than providing intelligence to you that can help identify enemies within. The fear of the state misusing the intelligence to create trouble for the political opponents is legitimate. Will I and the state that is my representative earnestly go all out in bringing that confidence among its people so that we share the necessary information from which our enemies stick out like sore thumbs against whom you can take a decisive action? It is better that you don’t know my response.
I have also started blaming the neighbouring country. Yes – Indeed we are unfortunate to have some treacherous neighbours. It is important to teach them a lesson and make them pay for the 40 brave lives. However, I am wondering if I am using this as an excuse to not take a closer look at myself at the same time. Please know that I don’t like following rules. Right from breaking all the traffic rules like driving on the wrong side, breaking the traffic signal, not standing in line in virtually any place, to urinating openly everywhere, I have scant respect for rules. In the name of caste, religion, language, faith…oh, give me a coin that has two sides…I can get into a serious conflict with my own countrymen and not think twice before harming someone. Will the incident of losing the best of my 40 men trigger the crucial change in my thinking?
I don’t like the inconvenience of being subjected to security checks in my own country. It is a different matter that I laud such efforts on a foreign soil. It is slowly coming to light that we even forced you to remove some of the security checks that you had placed for your own safety in the very place where the incident took place and that was in name of civilian freedom. When will I save you from my pettiness to gain political advantage?
Before concluding, I would like you to know that I am neither right, nor left. I am right at the centre lost in thoughts on how to face a child of a soldier. I did light a candle last night and pledged some money to financially support the families of the brave men.
Is this sufficient?
Symbolism does have its importance. Time taken out to light a candle at least helped me reflect deeply. Is this sufficient unless I changed myself drastically in my daily life to create a favourable atmosphere that will help in preventing a similar incident in future? An atmosphere that will make you feel proud of defending me with your life!
Dear Solider, this incident has helped me realize how blessed I am to have my defender in you. Now, I promise that I will relentlessly work towards becoming worthy of that defender. Jai Hind!

The 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is all set to commence from 23rd March 2019.

Cyber crime, the worlds most dangerous and hidden crime growing its roots stronger and faster than anything in the current digital era. Most of the cyber crime in the recent time has literally shook the world, especially the buzz that happened with regards to the data of the users in the most famous medium – Facebook. This movie has shed lights on the darker side of the cyber crime considering the data leakage or data theft by creating a genre of its kind with an entertainment bonanza with a peek insight of information.
Alok, the depraved hero (though he is portrayed as a decent and good academic guy) in this movie who aspires to become an entrepreneur by having his own start up. So, does he achieve his dream in doing so? Well, thats what the movie speaks about with his intellectual and wicked sense of achieving the same. The best part of the movie is the idea behind the Alok’s aspiration i.e. making use of digital medium with his brain effectively, which can be said as a deadly combination of brain and the digital medium !
The film starts with a brief introduction about the digital era and cyber crime to the viewers. Coming to the plot of this movie – “SUDHAAR Card” (which is nothing but the AADHAAR card), an unique identification provided by the government of india to all of its citizens. This plot provided an intense information about the data stored online in an encrypted way can still be taken away with a mechanism of hacking! Where every audience will start thinking about his/her data can be lost at any point of time. And of course, what are the consequences that can arouse by losing such vital data from the billions of people in the nation.
Sonu gowda has literally made a come back with her 2 shaded performances in this movie. One as an innocent computer science teaching staff in a private computer coaching centre and a high profile CBI officer who deals with the hero in order to find how the data leakage happened and how the same can be reverted by getting back the lost data from Alok. Janardhan chikkanna, the director and the captain of the ship has proven to the kannada cinema industry that a movie of such a genre can be made in our industry too.
The freshness in his narration depicts the amount of research he has made to make this movie and really deserves an applause from the audience. The instrumental cast – including Rangayana Raghu as the chief minister, Pawan Kumar as an ethical hacker and Avinash as a police officer, does its part and are able fully justify their support to the screenplay.
Does Alok escapes from the cyber crime web? Will the CBI and team succeed in getting back the lost data of billions of people of the nation? For the answers, do watch the movie and its worth watching !!
Have you ever got happy-high and danced your night away at Gilly’s Redefined?
Dancing is an excellent stress-buster, especially after an exhausting day and Bangalore houses some of the grooviest party destinations. Apart from just being a hub of IT professionals, the bustling city hosts the best dance floors for you to groove on.
After the sundown till a little past midnight, Bangalore is sure to leave you spellbound with its vivacious nightlife. From live karaokes to underground watering holes, umpteen microbreweries and posh nightclubs, you have multiple places to enjoy and make ad-hoc plans with your friends.
One thing that I have learnt after coming to Bangalore is that with so many pubs and discotheques across the city, you will never run out of options and can just soak up yourself in your favourite place, get happy-high and dance the night away with your friends. There are unduly high number of dance clubs and dedicated dance floors that serve all kinds of alcohol and scrumptious food.
From Big Brewsky to Pebble, XU, Skyye Lounge, Ice, High Ultra Lounge, No Limits Lounge, The Warehouse, Vapour, Siam Trading Company and many more; I have tried quite a lot of options on my list. But I have never got a chance to try my hands on Gilly’s Redefined.

An upcoming director, with the perfect formula for commercial movies, has given several blockbusters to Kannada and South Indian cinema.
One needs to appreciate the concept of choosing a subject, which is very crucial for the State and our language, Kannada.
The entire crew of the movie includes all new faces, except Veteran Anant Nag and Ramesh Bhat. The first half of the movie is absolutely brilliant and covers the Village lifestyle and parents from different backgrounds. It also brings back the school days. The wonderful story narration continues with a childhood love story and most generic language barriers. The infrastructure challenges and poor administrations around the government school is focused
As Karagodu lies in the border of Karnataka and Kerala, the language barrier of Malayalam and Kannada is been brought out very well. The 1st 10 minutes, entry of Upadhaya who attacks the school in his Yaksgana costume is one the best scene.
The second half of the story introduces Sir Anant Nag. Although the introduction of this character is lackluster, Ramesh Bhat and Anant Nag’s duo keeps the story intact and keeps you interested in the climax. The movie loses the humor factor in the second half and misses the surprise element too. The last part of the movie is completely focused on the lawyer and loses the storyline slightly and becomes offbeat.
The movie comes with a message and warning for government schools in India and the major challenge of language.
