4 04 THURSDAY 24 MARCH 2016 COVER STORY A violinist s prized secret: A Stradivarius he stole By Geoff Edgers The Washington Post He is dying, Q-tip elbows poking through a baggy shirt. Friends visit, spooning him ice cream and playing music. His daughters are around as well, stopping in after school, too young to process the grim scene. And there, carefully placed in the closet, out of view in the room his ex-wife has set up, is the Stradivarius. Philip Johnson s fingers are no longer strong enough to play any violin, never mind one so unforgiving. So he keeps the Strad in a plastic crate. The instrument is the only thing he has of value. It is also his biggest secret. When he s gone, the news will shock them all, from the FBI to his family to the daughters of Roman Totenberg, who stand to inherit the instrument. They will ask how this oncepromising, later penniless eccentric stole an 18 th -century violin worth millions and got away with it. After all, he was the only suspect when it was taken in As death approaches, Johnson, usually the loudest voice in the room, keeps his mouth shut. It is the fall of This has been his secret for 31 years. Johnson, who was never able to hold a job, a mortgage or a relationship, somehow accomplished something most everyone thought impossible: He played Totenberg s Stradivarius in plain view until the end. He did this through chaos and control, by building an impenetrable wall between his past and present. Those who suspected Johnson of the crime lost track of him. Those who knew him during the last two decades of his life had never heard of the Totenberg theft. They just thought Johnson had an old violin. Why, asked Gregory Maldonado, a friend and fellow violinist, would Phil have a Strad? The trail remained ice-cold even after Johnson died of pancreatic cancer two weeks before Thanksgiving Then, last summer, Thanh Tran, Johnson s ex-wife, decided to look into selling the violin. She had no idea it was a Strad. A friend suggested she contact Phillip Injeian, a dealer in Pittsburgh. It was Injeian who, working off ed photos, saw that it matched a Stradivarius built in 1734 and stolen from the late Totenberg. Injeian arranged to meet Tran in New York in late June. He also called the FBI. Within hours of her showing him the violin, two agents with the agency s art theft team swooped in to claim the Strad. They contacted the Totenbergs, including daughter Nina, the longtime National Public Radio legal affairs correspondent. In August, during a packed news conference in Manhattan, the authorities returned the violin to the family. Across town, in the locker room of the Metropolitan Opera, two musicians got ready for a rehearsal. Did you hear about Totenberg s Strad? asked cellist Jerry Grossman. Abe Appleman paused. A name the violinist hadn t thought of in years popped into his head. Was it Phil Johnson? he asked. That s exactly the guy, said Grossman. The crime defies logic. The young violinist, with so much ahead of him, brazenly acts while the master mingles in the next room. He leaves town under a cloud of suspicion. And even as he squanders his career, he refuses to reveal his secret. This delicate, handcrafted masterpiece of wood and gut strings is his to possess, to play, to imprison. There were hints all along. Only now, in the months after the discovery, can those who came into contact with Johnson piece together how this cocky amateur became a professional thief.
5 COVER STORY THURSDAY 24 MARCH His siblings think of his childhood just outside Philadelphia. The parents coddling the baby of the family, sparking a lifetime sense of entitlement. The ex-wife points to his anxieties, the ones that seemed to haunt his mother, and the manic behaviour. The symptoms led her to consider the possibility of undiagnosed attention-deficit disorder. Others note Johnson s relationship with God. He grew up deeply religious but later lost faith. In the end, Johnson s sister admits that she will never fully unpack the mystery. Can we ever figure out what makes someone else tick? Carol Anderson asks. Do we really know ourselves that well? The Bible says, The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? One thing Johnson did know. The beauty of a Stradivarius. The stringed instrument, named for the Italian craftsman Antonio Stradivari, is considered the finest one can play. It is also very rare. Experts estimate that of the 1,000 or so violins crafted before Stradivari s death in 1737, about 500 survive today. The magic of a Strad is very hard to put in words, says violin star Joshua Bell. It s sort of the difference between listening to Pavarotti sing and listening to a very good tenor. When you play a Strad, a great Strad, there s something about it. Like, Oh, my God, that s what a violin should sound like. In 2001, Bell paid nearly $4m for a Stradivarius with its own fascinating history: In 1936, a journeyman player named Julian Altman snuck into Carnegie Hall and stole the violin from Bronisław Huberman, disguised it with thick layers of shoe polish and performed on the Strad in B-rate gigs for decades. The Altman theft was uncovered only when he died in the mid- 1980s. The story, in some ways, mirrors that of Totenberg, who knew Huberman and was also a supremely gifted violinist from Poland. There is an important exception. Johnson was never meant to be a journeyman. At one time, he was thought by many, including his college teacher Joseph Silverstein one of the great orchestral violinists of the 20 th century to be a dynamic player with considerable promise. The secret. I think the secret killed him, says Maldonado, who knew Johnson for decades. It is May 13, 1980, and Totenberg is playing an all-mozart recital at the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He is not just the star attraction that night. He is also the school s director. Johnson, here to attend the concert, isn t famous, but after four years as a student in the tightly knit Boston music community, he s a familiar face. He is 27, a handsome man with Beatlesque brown hair. That night, Johnson brings a violin case to Pickman Hall and takes his seat. This case will be remembered later as authorities try to piece together how somebody could have smuggled a 246-year-old violin out of a crowded building. Today, if you walk into Longy s main building on the edge of Harvard Square, you ll be captured on camera. That wasn t the case in You could easily disappear within the building s winding hallways. That night, about 200 people packed Pickman to hear Totenberg perform with pianist Lily Dumont. After performing, Totenberg scoots across the lobby and leaves the Stradivarius alone, in a dressing room connected to the director s office. He steps out to mix with the crowd. When he returns, his violin case is gone. The FBI says that it was found nearby, but empty. Who took it? Immediately, talk centres on one suspect. Phil Johnson. He had been seen in the building that day, and it was odd because he wasn t a fan of Totenberg, recalls Irene Quirmbach, a violinist who had studied with Totenberg. We didn t really understand why he was there. Kenneth Sarch, one of Totenberg s former assistants, says Johnson was overheard grumbling that night that the aging master didn t deserve such a fine instrument. Karen Marie Marmer, then a young violinist visiting from New York, remembers running into Johnson in the lobby of Longy. She thinks it may have even been the night after the concert. He was agitated. I can t believe they re accusing me of something like this, he told her. The Johnson family s neighbourhood, just a half-hour southwest of Philadelphia, is made up of the neat, modest brick houses that sprang up all across postwar America. It was not a happy home. Robert, his father, had studied to become an artist before giving it up to become a machinist. Marion, his mother, is paralysed by anxiety and depression. By the time the children come along Robert Jr, Carol and finally Philip Marion won t so much as leave the house for the supermarket. She would say, It s like the day you were born, my life ended, Carol recalls being told. Life for the baby is different. He arrives early in Carol isn t allowed to get up from the table unless she finishes all of her carrots. Phil eats gobs of butter, sometimes dipped in ketchup. Bobby, 11 years older, finally speaks up. Why is he getting away with everything? You keep your mouth shut, his father shoots back. Bobby plays the violin first. But he lacks discipline. When Phil is 7, he notices the instrument. He asks whether he can try it. I could barely think of what to show him, Robert Johnson Jr says today. He said, OK, I guess I ll see what I can do with it. He just kept at it and kept at it, and by the end of the summer, when it was time to go to school, he could play every hymn in the hymn book. We were absolutely dumbfounded. The Stradivarius is being restored with a purpose. The Totenberg sisters are not searching for the highest bidder, a collector eager to place a mystical trophy on his mantel. The violin is being restored for a very specific buyer. A player. So that one day, the Stradivarius, a secret for decades, can be free, to sing again.
6 06 THURSDAY 24 MARCH 2016 COMMUNITY Gift of life: HMC gives family a new beginning Donor surgery at HMC for kidney transplantation is carried out by highly trained surgical teams through state-of-the-art laparoscopy, which is an advanced technique involving only a small incision this means the patients have a shorter recovery time. The Peninsula When Inaam Abdul Hamid moved to Qatar from Syria with her husband and a young family three years ago, she knew she would be able to give her family a better life. She didn t know that she would also be able to give one of her children the gift of another chance at life with the help of Hamad Medical Corporation s (HMC) Qatar Centre for Organ Transplantation just one of the mainly clinical teams that has been recognised by the Joint Commission International (JCI) who this week gave the Corporation the gold seal of approval for quality and safety. Inaam s Eldest daughter Lilas had developed kidney disease at age seven and the condition was worsening. I saw her suffering every day and naturally as her mother I wanted to do something to help her, Abdul Hamid said. It was affecting her in so many ways she couldn t do the things other young girls her age did. As a mother this is very hard to see. That help would literally give the gift of life to her daughter she would donate one of her kidneys. As in all live donations in Qatar, the procedure took place at Hamad General Hospital (HGH) after a series of exhaustive clinical, psychological and ethical investigations. Donor surgery at HMC for kidney transplantation is carried out by highly trained surgical teams through state-of-the-art laparoscopy, which is an advanced technique involving only a small incision this means the patients have a shorter recovery time. After the procedure, both Lilas and her mother left hospital a week later in good health which continues, thanks to the follow-up care from HMC s network of hospitals. That was in 2014 and Lilas is now 11 and thriving attending school and playing with her friends. Lilas, who before her operation had wanted to be an artist, now wants to be a doctor. She s going to school and living a happy life, said her mother. Donating a kidney to my daughter was the easiest decision I have ever made. Meanwhile, Inaam, who had desperately wanted another child and had been trying to conceive for seven years, fell pregnant and in February, gave birth to daughter Lamar. It is like being blessed twice, said Inaam who attributes her daughter s survival to the team at the Qatar Center for Organ Transplantation and HGH. All procedures, related to organ donation and transplantation in Qatar are free of charge for all patients; both Qatari citizens and non-qatari residents. Also, donors and recipients receive healthcare coverage for life in Qatar at all of HMC s JCI accredited facilities. Dr Yousef Al Maslamani, Director of the Qatar Centre for Organ Transplantation and HGH Medical Director, said the long-term transformation of clinical services and the focus on quality and safety at HMC meant organ transplant procedures like Lilas s were now becoming common place. Lilas s story isn t unique more patients are benefitting from the tremendous advancements in the delivery of care by teams such as those at the Qatar Center for Organ Transplantation, Dr Al Maslamani said. We simply wouldn t have been able to make these advances unless we had a real and consistent focus on quality, safety and research a commitment that was celebrated by the JCI this week. Dr Riadh Al Fadhil, Director of the Qatar Organ Donation Centre (Hiba) said live donations from family members are encouraged as they provide a better match. International statistics have shown that living kidney donors go on to live healthier and longer lives with regular follow-up care, Dr Al Fadhil said. This story of Lilas and Inaam is a wonderful example of how a family member can help a loved one with kidney failure, the best match for living donations is from a family member. Inaam didn t hesitate to help her daughter and now they are both happy and healthy and now blessed with another child, he said.

8 08 THURSDAY 24 MARCH 2016 FOOD So many peppers, so many flavours By Barbara Damrosch The Washington Post Hot peppers, sweet peppers they re all hot items in the catalogues this spring, and every year there are more. What s up? Peppers, which spread globally from the New World, were put to new and exciting uses everywhere they went. Although heat-loving, they were welcome even in northern countries such as Hungary, which became famous for its paprika. An accommodating crop for home gardeners, most require no staking and fit well in small spaces - even planters and pots. You might think it s all about looks. Even green peppers rarely stay that way, but progress to yellow, orange, red, chocolate brown or even a lustrous nearly-black purple hue, as with Purple Beauty from Pinetree Garden Seeds. Often you get several colour changes in sequence and can thereby grow a rainbow mix on one plant as the peppers mature. Purira from Seeds of Change is one such variety. With a pepper called Fish, carried by Seed Savers Exchange and others, the fruits are colourfully striped, with variegated foliage to boot. Filius Blue, from Baker Creek and West Coast Seeds, is a jewel box of multicoloured little balls, nestled among blue-green leaves. In the end, though, flavour counts the most. Want the sweetest pepper ever? Fedco Seeds says it s their Amish Pimiento. The hottest? Many claim it s the legendary Ghost from India, known there as Bhut Jolokia. (Find it from Harris Seeds and elsewhere.) Some peppers taste richer and fruitier than others, and it pays to try new ones to see which please your own set of taste buds. Wise seed sellers match peppers with the dishes a gardener-cook might want to make. For stuffing, R H Schumway s recommends its Chinese Giant, six inches across. I m drawn to Johnny s Selected Seeds Eros and Cupid or Burpee s Cherry Stuffers, for a platter of babies you can eat in one or two bites. Cooks like a thick-walled pepper for stuffing and for slicing as well - maybe Pizza Pepper from Territorial Seeds. For pickling or for pepper vinegar, there s the Pennsylvania Dutch heirloom Hinkelhatz ( Chicken Heart ), named for its shape, from Fedco Seeds and Seed Savers Exchange. For sweet ground spice pepper, Alma Paprika (from Territorial Seed and others) has long been a favourite, but for hot spice I d sample Cyklon from Seed Savers. It dries well because of its thin-walled structure. To jazz up crab cakes, the obvious choice is the aforementioned Fish, named for its traditional use at Chesapeake Bay oyster and crab houses. As cooks get more adventurous, we want to grow ingredients that will make our ethnic dishes more authentic. For Japanese cookery, try the peppers from Kitazawa Seed, which also sells Thai varieties for curries. Mexican cookery is very popular, and everyone must be making chiles rellenos, judging by the number of ancho/ poblano peppers, so essential to that recipe, being sold. Territorial sells a large one called Mulato Isleno, as both seeds and plants. For an Oaxacan mole, I m intrigued with Pasillo Bajio from John Scheepers Kitchen Garden Seeds. It s a medium-hot pepper that s allowed to dry on the plant, where it turns a dark brown. Scheepers also tells you how to roast its Basque Piquello peppers as well as what to do with its de Padrons: Fry them in oil, sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper, then, holding the stem, eat whole with a cool drink. Summer cannot come soon enough for that.
9 FASHION THURSDAY 24 MARCH IANS Modern touch to Indian crafts at AIFW finale Nine designers, distinct visions and a myriad of stories to tell all of this was weaved together with India Modern theme through a kaleidoscope of colours at the finale of the Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) Autumn-Winter 2016 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here. It laid down the final chapter of the five-day fashion saga here with names like Rahul Mishra and Samant Chauhan presenting Indian traditional craft with a contemporary twist and in a more global format. With an aim to pay an ode to the rich heritage of India through their ensembles, the designers blended traditional craft and weaves to showcase their modern styles and sensibilities of contemporary India. The designers splashed myriad colours on a blank canvas as they used the runway to narrate their interpretation of the India Modern theme with a dash of innovation, creativity and experimentation. Suits, lehengas, dresses, gowns, formal suits and skirts dominated the show. Apart from Mishra and Chauhan, stalwarts from fashion industry like Rajesh Pratap Singh, Anju Modi, Abraham and Thakore, Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna, Amit Aggarwal, Pankaj and Nidhi and Aneeth Arora came together for the finale. They presented five to six ensembles each. With shades of indigo blues, earthy blues and greens, and whites, the show focused on Indian contemporary, fusion wear and western wear. A surreal vibe seeped on the ramp with cylindrical lights hanging from the ceiling, adding glamour to the runway. Sticking to the theme, the show seemed like a story of India with birds and a live band plugging in the musical chords at the show. The show commenced with a small story with the line: It is thread of life that ties past and present together embracing the change. Singh, known for subtle yet fashionable lines, started the fashion party with panache. He experimented with natural indigo dying in gold colour with the outfits running high on zardozi work, linear pattern and hints of gold. He painted a modern chapter of Indian textiles with silhouettes likes long flowy dresses and gowns. After a formal affair with Singh s ensembles, it was time for some casual style from Arora under her brand Pero. Her comfortable and functional outfits were backed by jackets and casual dresses with polka dots and a splash of gold. Mishra, who has made a name with his collections at the Paris Fashion Week, said that his ensembles were an extension of what I showcased at Paris. He played with hues of blue to bring forward artisanal evening wear like long length gown with the use of Indian textiles. Mishra chalked out his creations with intricate embroideries, delicate work of cuts and smart detailing of hand work and prints with a bit of influence form nature as he incorporated flowers, branches, leaves to his vision as well. The collection from the house of Abraham & Thakore took inspiration from the peasant jackets of Rajasthan and Gujarat. The Kedia was re-imagined as contemporary jackets and tops in earthy hues combining fine handloom mulmul with metallic highlights. It also had a sparkle of gold and shimmer with surfaces intricately worked with applique and cut-worked. Chauhan went back to his Rajputana collection to seek inspiration, as he played with silk in its natural and raw form through the clothes. He won over the audiences with asymmetrical skirts, long jacket teamed up with trouser with work of brocade and thread work in shades of white with a hint of red. Anju Modi used red and olive green to present ethnic collection like suits with layers, long skirts with zardozi, mirror work and hand embroidery. Pankaj and Nidhi played with pink and white for western wear like balloon skirt, fishtail skirt, dress with long strings of threads flowing down giving a feel of a long scarf and in one a sleeve. Known for his extravagant red carpet gowns, Aggarwal tempered with bright shades like pink, orange and red with use of sheer and ruffles. It was jharokha play for Gandhi and Khanna. They picked orange and red pallet for the ensemble with jharokha prints on them. After the finale, the designers were seen in a jovial mode as they laughed, joked and celebrated at the post show briefing, saying that It was a great show with a perfect end. Let s party. The show seemed to carry a strong deja vu feel as it reminded one of the finale of the last two editions, in which an array of designers came together to pay an ode to the rich heritage of India.
10 10 THURSDAY 24 MARCH 2016 HEALTH & FITNESS VLCC helps client shed 78kg body weight By Ahmed Salem The Peninsula Basel M K Magboul, an accomplished manager living in Qatar, has suffered from obesity for most of his life. However, with the help of VLCC s extensive weight-loss programme, he was able to successfully drop 78kg in 10 months. That was no easy road for Magboul. A self-described foodie, Basel had been suffering from chronic obesity, without realising how deeply his bad eating habits, and lack of exercise had been affecting his health. For years I had been suffering from obesity, yet I was always trying to prove to myself that my weight wasn t affecting my life, I was very headstrong in believing that. Yet deep in my mind I was very unhappy with how my weight was affecting every aspect of my life and for the longest time I never did anything proactive to help my situation. It was not until Magboul suffered from a life threatening health-crisis, that he finally decided to do something to help him lose the weight. Like most people who suffer from obesity, Magboul tried to utilise many weightloss techniques to help him shed weight without having to put in the effort. I tried about everything that you could think of in my fight against obesity. Tried all the diets that people swear by, the trendy ones, the unhealthy ones, everything you could think of, I ve tried it, said, Magboul. However, I wasn t being realistic with myself. I tried to believe that weight-loss could be achieved without having to physically work on it, he added. One of Magboul s closest friends, who had been suffering from obesity as well, contemplated getting gastric bypass surgery to help him with his weight struggles. However, for health reasons he was denied the operation until he was able to drop 30kg. Things got depressing for Magboul and his friend, and it wasn t until they stumbled upon a VLCC weight-loss ad, that things started turning around for them. I got so desperate, and I explored the Internet for ways that could assist me in combating my weight woes. I came across a VLCC ad and did my research online and read testimonials from people who have had success with the centre and that encouraged me to share that information with my friend. After sharing the news with his embattled friend, they decided that Magboul s friend should effectively try out VlCC s services. He went on to lose 90kgs within 12 months and that truly inspired Magboul to try out their services for himself. I wanted to have my friend try it out first, because I wasn t sure myself. In a way he was my guinea pig, laughed Magboul. Magboul joined VlCC s weight-loss programme 10 months ago, and has been working closely with Specialist Khaled Mokdem, Regional Trainer VLCC Qatar, and Slimming In- Charge to help him keep the weight off ever since. Basel is one of our many success stories. He joined our weight-loss and slimming programme about 10 months ago, his initial weight was 155kg and has successfully been able to lose 78kg in that time frame, said Mokdem. Unlike other Weight-loss programmes, VLCC s programme encompasses and employs all aspects of efficient weightloss regimens and techniques, without jeopardising the clients health or hindering their progress. When I first started the programme with VLCC, I was suffering from high blood pressure and complications that was affecting my heart and to ensure my safety wasn t affected, Khaled put my programme on pause till I got these issues sorted out and in that moment I realized how morally committed VLCC were towards their clients, Said Magboul. The VLCC leight loss and slimming programme goes beyond dropping the excess weight, it also focuses on helping the patients maintain their weight loss and monitoring that process closely to help the patients with any weight gained after the slimming period and to look into the reasons why the weight was gained again. The program consists of Diet Chart by dietitian, Exercise Chart by physiotherapist and Treatment Sessions which include therapy sessions, appliances session and advanced sessions such as advanced Turboslim, Slimsonic, Rejuve, 3D Tummy Treatment, 3D Hydro- Balanced Water Treatment, Ultra-sonic Treatment. VlCC s weight loss programmes are designed to adhere to every client s physical and psychological needs and that is the key to the programme s success. Every client s weight loss journey is different. We recognise that at VLCC and so we design the programme to meet our clients needs and expectations, said Mokdem. The centre s latest technique utilizes DNA Fit Diet and Exercises analysis which helps them customise each patient s weight-loss programme with a far greater accuracy than was ever possible before. This technique brings in laser sharp focus while designing a diet and exercise regimen that is best suited for each patient based on their genetic profile. The reason why Magboul decided to come forward and share his story is that he believes that his story could inspire people to fight obesity in a proactive and healthy manner, and help them seek change.
11 ENTERTAINMENT THURSDAY 24 MARCH By Jeff Guo The Washington Post To modern eyes, the classic trio of Disney princess films released in 1937, 1950, and 1959 can seem painfully retrograde. Why are characters so obsessed with Snow White s looks? Why doesn t Cinderella have any talents or hobbies? And why doesn t Sleeping Beauty do anything besides get drugged and await rescue? A generational gap divides Disney s princess franchise. After 1959 s Sleeping Beauty, it took 30 years for the studio to produce another animated princess feature. The intervening decades saw dramatic change. Walt Disney died. Betty Friedan published The Feminine Mystique. Martin Luther King Jr marched on Washington. In 1989, when Disney finally released The Little Mermaid, critics praised this modern new heroine. Unlike her predecessors, Ariel is fully realised female character who thinks and acts independently, even rebelliously, Roger Ebert wrote. The New York Times called her a spunky daredevil. And yet, in one respect, The Little Mermaid represented a backward step in the princess genre. For a film centred on a young woman, there s an awful lot of talking by men. In fact, this was the first Disney princess movie in which the men significantly outspoke the women. And it started a trend. The plot of The Little Mermaid, of course, involves Ariel literally losing her voice but in the five Disney princess movies that followed, the women speak even less. On average in those films, men have three times as many lines as women. These data come from linguists Carmen Fought and Karen Eisenhauer, who have been working on a project to analyse all the dialogue from the Disney princess franchise. Since so many young girls watch these movies often on constant repeat it s worth examining what the films are teaching about gender roles. We don t believe that little girls naturally play a certain way or speak a certain way, says Fought, a professor of linguistics at Pitzer College. They re not born liking a pink dress. At some point we teach them. So a big question is where girls get their ideas about being girls. The Disney princess research is still in its preliminary stages, but a few weeks ago, Fought and Eisenhauer gave a preview during the nation s largest conference of linguists. Their goal is to use data to shed light on how the male and female characters in these films talk differently. They started by counting how often the characters spoke. That s when they hit Researchers spot a major problem with The Little Mermaid The Disney princess research is still in its preliminary stages, but a few weeks ago, Fought and Eisenhauer gave a preview during the nation s largest conference of linguists. Their goal is to use data to shed light on how the male and female characters in these films talk differently. They started by counting how often the characters spoke. That s when they hit upon a surprising irony. upon a surprising irony. In the classic three Disney princess films, women speak as much as, or more than the men. Snow White is about Cinderella is And in Sleeping Beauty, women deliver a whopping 71 percent of the dialogue. Though these were films created over 50 years ago, they give ample opportunity for women to have their voices heard. By contrast, all of the princess movies from Disney s renaissance era are startlingly male-dominated. Men speak 68 percent of the time in The Little Mermaid; 71 percent of the time in Beauty and the Beast; 90 percent of the time in Aladdin; 76 percent of the time in Pocahontas; and 77 percent of the time in Mulan. Part of the problem is that these newer films are mostly populated by men. Aside from the heroine, the films offer few examples of women being powerful, respected, useful, or comedic. There s one isolated princess trying to get someone to marry her, but there are no women doing any other things, Fought says. There are no women leading the townspeople to go against the Beast, no women bonding in the tavern together singing drinking songs, women giving each other directions, or women inventing things. Everybody who s doing anything else, other than finding a husband in the movie, pretty much, is a male. The older princess films had fewer speaking roles in total, and more gender balance. But The Little Mermaid pioneered a new style of Disney movie, modelled after Broadway musicals, with their large ensemble casts. As the number of characters grew, so did the gender inequality. My best guess is that it s carelessness, because we re so trained to think that male is the norm, says Eisenhauer, a PhD student at North Carolina State. So when you want to add a shopkeeper, that shopkeeper is a man. Or you add a guard, that guard is a man. I think that s just really ingrained in our culture. The chatty sidekick is another good example of a role that goes to men by default. This is a staple character in more recent Disney films, and he yes, he often gets some of the best lines. There s Flounder, Sebastian, Lumiere, Cogsworth, Iago, Genie and Mushu. Why can t any of them be women? Mrs Potts, the teakettle from Beauty and the Beast, is the only example of a female sidekick, and she s overshadowed by the other castle staff. After Mulan (1998), Disney took a 10-year break before releasing its next series of princess films. These newer films are better at giving lines to men and women equally. In Tangled, women have 52 percent of the lines, and in Brave, a film about a mother-daughter relationship, they had 74 percent. Frozen breaks with that trend, though. Despite being a story about two sister princesses, men claim 59 percent of the lines in that film.
12 12 THURSDAY 24 MARCH 2016 ENTERTAINMENT People confuse reel chemistry with real: Farhan Akhtar By Durga Chakravarty IANS Ever since the news of his separation from his wife of 15 years emerged, Farhan Akhtar s personal life has been surrounded by rumours of link-ups with his co-actors. The actor-singer-filmmaker only laughs at it and says people sometimes confuse onscreen chemistry of actors with their real life. Farhan, who announced in January his separation from his celebrity hairstylist wife Adhuna Bhabani, with whom he shares two daughters Shakya and Akira has been linked to his Wazir co-star Aditi Rao Hydari, his Rock On!! 2 actress Shraddha Kapoor and even with Kalki Koechlin, with whom he worked in the 2011 film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Asked why actors end up in the midst of such link-up rumours in the first place, Farhan said: Well, I really don t know why the rumours spread like fire and why the rumours have started. I guess people enjoy what they watch on screen and feel the chemistry that is happening on screen... maybe (they) confuse it with what is happening in real life. Farhan and Adhuna had issued a joint statement to declare their mutual and amicable decision of ending their marriage and had stated that their priority remains to be their children. Farhan has since been busy with his new projects whether it is filming Rock On!! 2 or his music journey. In fact, for International Women s Day, he came up with a new song dedicated to the ladies, and said that it was inspired by a painting by his younger daughter. Talking about the increasing existence of Bollywood songs on girls, parties and alcohol, the 42-year-old son of veteran writer and lyricist Javed Akhtar, said: I don t agree that (Bollywood) music is only about that (girls, alcohol and parties). There is a lot of music that is not about those things. There is a lot of music that talks about other aspects of human emotions and eventually it is up to the listener on what they want to listen to. The actor strongly feels that each listener and viewer have to decide for themselves as to what they would like to hear, and he is especially happy that filmmakers are bringing out projects that are content-driven.... We are relatively at a place in the movie world, where a film like Aligarh talks about a serious issue. It talks about things that are important to discuss. So, for audiences like us who want to see something beyond the popcorn entertainment, I think it is important to talk about these films, said Farhan, who has helmed films like Dil Chahata Hai, Lakshya and the Shah Rukh Khanstarrer Don. While the Hindi film industry is at its experimental best, one still wonders why there s preference towards actioners or mostly films which fall in the romantic zone, instead of delving on an art form like music or dance. To that, Farhan said: The producers, actors and directors have their own choices. It is very difficult to comment on why someone makes an action or romantic movie.

14 14 THURSDAY 24 MARCH 2016 BRAIN TEASERS EASY SUDOKU HYPER SUDOKU Yesterday s answer Easy Sudoku Puzzles: Place a digit from 1 to 9 in each empty cell so every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains all the digits 1 to 9. Yesterday s answer How to play Hyper Sudoku: A Hyper Sudoku Puzzle is solved by filling the numbers from 1 to 9 into the blank cells. A Hyper Sudoku has unlike Sudoku 13 regions (four regions overlap with the nine standard regions). In all regions the numbers from 1 to 9 can appear only once. Otherwise, a Hyper Sudoku is solved like a normal Sudoku. KAKURO Cartoon Arts International / The New York Times Syndicate Yesterday s answer How to play Kakuro: The kakuro grid, unlike in sudoku, can be of any size. It has rows and columns, and dark cells like in a crossword. And, just like in a crossword, some of the dark cells will contain numbers. Some cells will contain two numbers. However, in a crossword the numbers reference clues. In a kakuro, the numbers are all you get! They denote the total of the digits in the row or column referenced by the number. Within each collection of cells - called a run - any of the numbers 1 to 9 may be used but, like sudoku, each number may only be used once.
