Book Review: Feast - With a Taste of Amir Khusro by Bisma Tirmizi

Book Review: Feast - With a Taste of Amir Khusro by Bisma Tirmizi

Price: Rs. 295/- ‘Stories and food remain the same, only faces change and those too only vaguely. The same faces keep coming back every few generations to eat the same food and live out the same stories.’ Ayesha realizes that her relationship with food has made her obese and this realization takes her on a journey of self-discovery where she learns to fall in love with food not through gluttony, but by understanding its sensuous journey and evolution. In her life, feast runs parallel to the tales of people and sometimes becomes the cerebral voice relating its journey over time and regions, telling stories of the people to whom it provides nourishment and nurturing. Travelling in time, Ayesha and Feast present scenarios of hospitality, generosity and warmth of the people of the subcontinent; through seasons, traditions and celebrations. Soon Ayesha comes to appreciate how food brings with it interesting stories, tying various emotions together—celebratory, jubilant, sorrowful and the ordinary. The history of regional cuisine, the multitude of tastes and flavours and the passions they evoke, have a deep impact on Ayesha. She eventually comes to understand that her primary relationship is with food and until that is not healthy, nothing else will be. Away from Ayesha’s voice, Tirmizi’s account is often omniscient, telling tales of a different time, stepping into another past and then jumping to the present, voicing the evolution of food and its impact on Ayesha and the relationships she has with others. Additionally, mouth-watering recipes of traditional dishes from the subcontinent make for a delightful read. In Tirmizi’s deft hands, Feast is as a feast should be: endearing and unputdownable. Evocative, engaging and a feast in itself, this book traces the importance of our regional cuisines and ties them with memory, emotion and familial bonds. Bisma’s narrative presents painstakingly collated recipes of our favourite food items but takes us beyond the culinary senses into more complex territories of self-discovery, time travel and search for fulfillment. Above all, it is also a testament to how food connects and remains an unappreciated binding force in a region bruised by never-ending conflict. —Raza Rumi, author, journalist and Editor, Daily Times A love story goes to the heart. Good food tickles the palate. Combined, they touch the soul. Peppered with recipes and stories of how they evolved, the delicacy that emerges is a ‘culinary romance’ that is irresistible. Bisma Tirmizi is outstanding here! —Zubeida Mustafa, Winner of Lifetime Achievement Award, International Women Media Foundation, Former Assistant Editor, Dawn You need to be a dedicated Biryani-foodie to go through this imaginative chronicle.— Bapsi Sidhwa, author A fascinating account of life and cuisine in the subcontinent, Bisma’s first book is a welcome diversion from the dark times we live in. —Ayesha Azfar, Assistant Editor, Dawn About the Author Bisma Tirmizi has been a storyteller for twenty-seven years, first as an employee at The Herald Group of Publications for over six years in the capacity of a sub-editor and then as a freelance journalist. She has penned over five hundred articles and has been published in Dawn, The News, The Express Tribune and Buzzfeed, among many others. Her musings over a cup of tea almost always find their way to be the written word, either in the form of an article, story, commentary and now a book. Tirmizi has been writing ‘Food Stories’ for dawn.com for over four years and has been enjoying food forever. This is her debut novel, sketching an elemental love story between us and our unique, nurturing and, at times, obsessive relationship with food and the social relationships surrounding it. She lives in Las Vegas, United States. Reading this book has been a walk down the memory lane for me. There were so many places where I couldn't stop my tears remembering memories associated with it. I have lost count of the number of calls I made to my family whilst going through this book. Each and every occasion is replete with some dish associated with a certain loved one and then its an avalanche of memories. This book is a heart warming read that reminds you how food binds us together for generations. Written in a part memoir form, part diary style narrative this book comes across like that old diary running in the family which holds all the secret recipes and also the different traditions to be followed on each occasion. My mother has one, where apart from her secret recipes she would scribble important dates like birthday, anniversary etc and also mention their favourite dishes next to it. Just in case they drop in any time, their favourite food is always there to welcome them. I also faintly remember how she also noted allergies or prohibitions due to health. She always wanted family times to be filled with lip-smacking dishes, one that does only good to both the heart and body. This book for me was reminiscent of such times. The language in this book is "delicious" if I can say so, because it makes the people, the food, the place and those times come alive before your eyes. I think this book should have carried a small note "Don't read on empty stomach." Gosh! The number of times I have succumbed to midnight snacking while reading the book! On a serious note, the book makes you feel like you are part of an inner circle where the family secrets have been shared with you, along with some beautiful moments of their lives. Some of them can be called life altering narratives, where there is difference of opinion, arguments but in the end it is all good, with yummy food around. Isn't that what a family is all about? We argue, we fight but we stay together because of the love we have for each other and celebrate that love with food. This is a soul-stirring read. The pages take you to childhood spent in grandparents' house where all that you wanted was cooked for you every day, to that day when your birthday was synonymous with gajar ka halwa, when gulab jamun meant some distant cousin has cleared their exam with flying colours. From tracing the origin of biryani to today's times when the type of biryanis have grown manifold, the author has done a wonderful job at bringing it all together with the magic of her words. Days after having finished the book, the various recipes mentioned therein are still floating in my head and I am trying them all out one by one. This book will have a special place on my bookshelf. foodies and all those souls like me for who me food is a feeling, an emotion. This book isn't just another book on food, it is an emotion, an amalgamation of all those feelings we associate with food. Don't miss this one! P.S: I have already made a list of people whom I going to gift this one, more as a keepsake and a token of love in memory of all the good times! Foodie Verdict This is one book where I feel my foodie verdict fails. This book is beyond this verdict to be honest but as is the ritual I will still go ahead. This book is like Moz Ka meetha (mashed bananas cooked in sugar syrup and garnished with mixed nuts) - Melts in the mouth and warms your heart, soul and tummy!

Film industry bodies decry threats against Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone

Film industry bodies decry threats against Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone

Film industry bodies decry threats against Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone Rachana Dubey Various film associations participated in protest to show their support for the 'Padmavati' team. | TNN | Nov 27, 2017, 17:08 IST Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor in 'Padmavati' Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali 's 'Padmavati' hasn't ceased to be in the headlines over the last few weeks. In a fresh turn of events, 20 bodies representing various factions of the film industry including filmmakers and technicians observed a 15-minute blackout in Film City on Sunday evening as a mark of protest against the bullying ways of supposed groups and the silence maintained by the governments of various states. The blackout was observed between 4.30 pm and 4.45 pm in the presence of over a thousand-strong crowd that comprised members of different associations and the aam junta. Titled 'Main Azaad Hoon?', the protest was observed at the main entrance of the Film City studios in Goregaon to show the industry's solidarity for Bhansali and to honour the creative forces of the fraternity. "We didn't want to disturb the on-going work of our fellow producers, technicians and artistes which is the reason the duration of the blackout was only 15 minutes; but in those 15 minutes, no one shot a frame for their show or movie. Everyone peacefully resumed work because we know everyone is chasing a deadline," said Ashoke Pandit (active member and office bearer at The Indian Film and Television Directors Association), adding, "What is also shocking is the strange unity with which all the political outfits are supporting the fringe groups in their act of hooliganism. The film was scheduled to open in cinemas on December 1 but now its release has been deferred and a new date is yet to be announced. Firoz (Raja) Khan, the senior vice president of the Junior Artiste Association, believes that protests like this are important now to protect the bread and butter of the current generation of craftsmen and the future, too. He elaborated, "We don't want the next generation to inherit fear from us. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is one of our best filmmakers who helms epics. Every department works hard to put a film like that together and so many of us earn our living by working on films like his. If filmmakers like him decide to not make films, whose loss do you think it is? Freedom of expression ka kya hua? I have worked with Bhansali and I know he is very sensitive to detail. He looks at every single junior artiste before a shot. If he has gone wrong somewhere, we have courts and the CBFC to pull him up. This open dhamkibaazi is not tolerable." Pointing out that they are expected to support every social campaign that the central government initiates," Pandit said, " Amitabh Bachchan supports polio awareness. Several actresses have supported Beti Padhao Beti Bachao; Akshay Kumar and several other actors supported the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan. And what is the government doing when open threats are being issued to members of this fraternity? So far, nothing! Aaj Bhansali par ban aayi hai, khamosh rahe to kal hum sab par ban aayegi," adds Ashoke. Bhupinder Sayan, general secretary of the Indian films and television choreographers association, seconded Firoz Khan's opinion and added, "We stand by our rights to work freely, without any fear and support Mr Bhansali when his professional freedom is being threatened. This problem needs a quick resolution. People have been asking questions about 'Padmavati' but are they giving him a chance to answer? Give him the space for it. If there is anything objectionable, the CBFC will direct accordingly. We cannot be dictated by fringe bodies. It affects the morale of an entire fraternity. We will take it to a point where the noise reaches the right ears. If the fringe groups have a reason to stand united, don't we have ours?"

Awesome New 'Avengers: Infinity War' Character Photos Are Here: Trailer Coming Soon? - Moviefone

by Gina Carbone How many Marvel characters can you assemble for one magazine? Infinity! (Super lame. Sorry.) "Avengers: Infinity War" opens in May 2018, which is actually only a few months away. Over the summer, Disney teased fans by showing some amazing footage at the D23 Expo ... but not releasing it to the public. Fans are still on high alert for the first official trailer. In the meantime, Vanity Fair treated the MCU to several new covers featuring "Infinity War" stars. If your favorite didn't make a cover, he or she is probably featured inside. If not, it's probably because there are 7 gazillion Marvel characters and even a spread this big can't get to all of them. Here are a few, though: Check out these brand new #InfinityWar covers from @VanityFair ! More info: https://t.co/1XIlz5uPU4 pic.twitter.com/HmSLDApyGq — Marvel Entertainment (@Marvel) November 27, 2017 We're gonna need a bigger screen. pic.twitter.com/ZanKgQjiYt — Screen Rant (@screenrant) November 27, 2017 There's a lengthy story to go with all of those photos, and it hints to some character exit signs ahead. Here's a portion of the Vanity Fair piece: "After Avengers 4, an ambitious multi-franchise crossover movie slated for release in 2019, at least some of the original characters who sit at the center of the billion-dollar Avengers team will be hanging up their capes and shields." As Collider noted, this is connected, in part, to contracts expiring for major stars like Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Chris Evans. Speaking of Johansson (Black Widow, now blonde), here's what she told Vanity Fair : "I feel a lot of joy for the next generation. It's a bittersweet feeling, but a positive one." Chris Hemsworth (Thor) also took a nostalgic tone, at the end of this otherwise fun on-set anecdote from the VF reporter: On the set of Avengers 4, I watched Marvel's biggest stars lounge on comfy couches under a canopy in the long stretches between takes. Mark Ruffalo scratched Scarlett Johansson's back, while Johansson, Chris Evans, and several other Avengers hunched over their phones in a competitive game of Words with Friends. I reached for a camera to record the moment—some of the most famous faces in the world lit up by phone screens just like the rest of us—but the ever vigilant Marvel security team had wrapped my phone in layers of protective tape. Later, Chris Hemsworth mentioned that very moment to me. "I thought, Could somebody take a photo of this? We're all aware that this is going to be the last time we get to hang out like this." "The last time." That's referencing "Avengers 4," though, which comes after "Infinity War." It will also be after "Infinity War" that the official title of "Avengers 4" will be revealed. "Infinity War" opens in theaters May 4, 2018. "Avengers 4" opens May 3, 2019.

Marvel's Stars on Their New and Ever-Changing Superhero Looks - Vanity Fair

Marvel’s Stars on Their New and Ever-Changing Superhero Looks Explaining the blonde Black Widow, mohawked Hawkeye, and scarred Thor in our Holiday issue gallery. by Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Karen Gillan as Nebula, and Chris Pratt as Star-Lord. Photographs by Jason Bell; Styled by Jessica Diehl. When 32 Marvel actors gathered over a weekend at Pinewood Atlanta Studios to celebrate a decade of filmmaking success and to have their photos taken by Jason Bell for the Holiday issue of Vanity Fair, there was something unusual about the lineup. Though many of the cast members were already in town for their work on Avengers 4, and all were in character and in costumes, the looks themselves run the gamut from new debuts to throwbacks. By the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Groot, for example, certainly doesn’t look that small anymore. But as Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige explains, costumes no longer make these heroes who they are—though that doesn’t mean there aren’t clues about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to be gleaned from at least a few of these looks. The character most altered, after his harrowing journey through space in Thor: Ragnarok, is Chris Hemsworth’s god of thunder. “When we started Chris Hemsworth on Thor, ” Feige told me, “Thor’s hair is blond. He’s got a cape; he’s got a hammer. These are the things that make Thor, Thor. He’s now appeared as that character so many times, Chris Hemsworth is Thor. So he cut his hair, you get rid of his hammer, and it’s still him.” For even more from Vanity Fair ’s exclusive Marvel cover story and shoot, click here . Hemsworth, for one, is not complaining about the Asgardian’s makeover. In this shoot, he’s sporting the short hair and scruffy look of Thor: Ragnarok. “The wig—that’s changing,” he told me on the set of Avengers 4. He’s got on a darker, less gilded, and, much to Hemsworth’s relief, less bulky version of the traditional Thor armor he wore in previous films. Hemsworth says he always knew when he was back on a Marvel set thanks to “the armor, the boots, the whole thing—the uncomfortable state you’re put in, physically” and would have to give himself a pep talk before each film: “deep breath, here we go, this is going to be hot and uncomfortable for four months.” But with the newer modifications, Hemsworth can get his costume on and off quicker than in years past. The hammer and cape—which were broken and torn in Ragnarok —may be back for the photo shoot but that doesn’t mean they’ll return in Avengers: Infinity War. As for Thor’s most significant lost accessory, the eye that was plucked out of his head by Cate Blanchett’s Hela, all that remains of that trauma in our gallery is a light scar running down the right side of Hemsworth’s face. Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Linda Cardellini as Laura Barton, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and Zoe Saldana as Gamora. Photographs by Jason Bell; Styled by Jessica Diehl. Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow started the franchise in 2010’s Iron Man 2 wearing a skintight catsuit and a cascade of deep red curls. (Johansson actually dyed her hair red in order to impress director Jon Favreau when trying to land the Marvel gig.) That early look, very faithful to Natasha Romanoff of the comics, was never one Johansson felt comfortable in. “I didn’t feel like I owned that suit until the first Avengers, ” Johansson said in reference to the looser, more tactical look she wore in Joss Whedon’s superhero team-up. Johansson said her nerves and fear that audiences wouldn’t accept her in the role added to her uneasiness with the costume in Iron Man 2. “When you feel like you can own the suit, you wear it well.” Natasha has come a long way since her days in Tony Stark’s employ. In our gallery she debuts her most rugged look yet with a lighter vest mixing up the Widow’s usual monochromatic look. The red hair is gone, too. Last time audiences saw Natasha was at the end of Captain America: Civil War when Tony Stark warned her that the authorities would want to track her down. We can assume this blonde Black Widow is on the run with the bearded Captain America who showed up by her side in early Infinity War footage and on some poster art given to fans at Comic-Con.

Though Robert Downey Jr. has a lot of love for his red and gold mechanical suit, the actor opted to dress as Tony Stark in this gallery rather than his alter ego, Iron Man. “ Terrence Howard did once tell me that I looked like a ladybug,” Downey recalls of his early days in superhero gear. But Downey said even the “cumbersome, and not user-friendly” Iron Man suit has gotten easier to deal with over the years. This is partly because he doesn’t have to wear it as much, thanks to the leaps in motion-capture technology Marvel Studios has taken advantage of. The actor said he used to do one long “scan” per movie to capture the movements and shape of his body in order to create a believable C.G.I. Iron Man suit—“now, you might do three scans a week, and it takes no time.” But even Tony’s other suits, like the “lovely Tom Ford, three-piece, two button” he wears in Civil War, are very specific to Stark’s evolving style. “Those ties don’t work anymore, they’re too wide,” Downey recalls rejecting early options for what his tech billionaire character should wear as he strikes a pose alongside Feige and Marvel legend Stan Lee in the pages of Vanity Fair. Instead, Downey is wearing a simple black shirt, jeans, and a striped blazer which just happens to be a slightly flashier version of Feige’s famously casual producer’s uniform.

Though Mark Ruffalo is dressed here in the shredded threads of his pre-Hulk character Dr. Bruce Banner, we may be seeing much more of the big green guy as the franchise wraps up. Before transforming into the Hulk at the end of Thor: Ragnarok, Banner said he might never again be able to change back into the scientist alter-ego. When Ruffalo joined the franchise in 2012, he requested his Hulk, unlike all the other versions that came before him, be based on his own face and movements. “That was something that really was important to me, you know? It’s always so dislocating to watch the Hulk turn into a totally different character.” For Ruffalo, on the set of upcoming Avengers two-parter, that means more time spent in a motion-capture suit and drawn-on dots.

For the eagle-eyed Marvel fan there are many more new treats to be seen in the gallery including Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp suit in flight and Jeremy Renner putting the “mohawk” in Hawkeye. Even the tiniest Avenger, Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man, gets a bit of a costume upgrade. Ant-Man’s new suit is sleeker and darker than the original and, perhaps, enhanced with some new technology courtesy of either Dr. Hank Pym or Tony Stark. But for Rudd, there’s an even more important element to his look—one every single Avenger and Guardian of the Galaxy has to consider: the Marvel workout. “It’s probably changed my life and will maybe continue to,” Rudd said of going from comedy leading man to action hero. “It’s completely changed the way I eat food and work out. Fitness and diet have become something at the forefront of my life; that was never the case.” For these actors, most of whom appear, in some capacity, in a new Marvel film every year, the rigorous upkeep never stops. Rudd was actually filming two Marvel movies, Avengers 4 and Ant-Man and the Wasp, simultaneously. “Screw that, can’t it just be part of my next four months?” Rudd remembers saying—initially resistant to the commitment required to stay in fighting shape. Black Panther ’s Chadwick Boseman told me he was squeezing in demanding Marvel workouts in between promoting his latest film, Marshall, a biopic on the far less muscle-bound Supreme Court Justice. This particular aspect of the Marvel look is one its actors never get to take off but Rudd, for one, is not complaining: “I owe the franchise maybe a few extra years of life.” Readers in search of the full Vanity Fair -Marvel experience, including all four covers, can purchase here .
