Airlines stock had hit the lower circuit filter of Rs 1535 But it is still higher than the Rs 701 it had dropped to on August 7 Mondays figure was of course before the evening announcement of a partial lockout in the airline The numbers are significant for the lenders to the airline to take a call on whether it makes sense to keep the company still flying despite making operational losses of Rs 8 crore a day The airline is operating only 85 daily flights with 10 operational aircraftscompared to over 400 daily flights with a fleet of 69 aircraft till November last year Vijay Mallyas airline has an accumulated losses of over Rs 6000 crore (it has never made a profit since its incorporation in 2003) with a debt card of over Rs 7000 croreeven after a write down of Rs 1400 crore in 2011 But if the airline cannot begin flying even after Thursday the consortium of 19 bankers will have to declare the entire sum as non-performing asset This is a call the bankers will have to take after Thursdayonce the engineers take a call on returning to their duties Closing operations will also mean the companys existing flight slots will be up for distribution among the others Getting them back will be difficult for Kingfisher and that means the airlines revival through the only possible routea foreign investment will be more tough to negotiate for Mallya SoKingfisher is likely to still try to retain its truncated operations with around 4000 employees catering to 10 aircraftmaking it an airline with the highest employees per aircraft ratio of 400 In a market where engineers and

Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: IANS | New Delhi | Published: June 5 2017 12:53 pm Filmmaker Sridhar Rangayan has been hosting the Kashish LGBTQ Mumbai Film Festival for eight editions Top News From stereotypical caricatures to realistic and believable — the portrayal of LGBTQ characters in mainstream Indian films has undergone a shift But it’s far from the positive depiction in the independent short and documentary space says filmmaker and gay rights activist Sridhar Rangayan “While mainstream Indian cinema is yet to sink its teeth into nuanced and positive portrayals independent films short films and documentaries have held the rainbow banner high” Rangayan told IANS in an email interview from Mumbai Citing films like Aligarh Margarita With a Straw Angry Indian Goddesses and Kapoor & Sons Rangayan said: “These films invested their LGBTQ narratives with dignity However these films are far and few The innuendos and crude jokes continue in films like ‘Grand Masti’ ‘No Entry’ and countless others including the horrendous caricatures on television shows like Kapil Sharma’s and many more “Who are these characters — are they transgenders transvestites drag queens — why are men dressed as women and clowning around What purpose do they serve I fail to fathom” Putting up a fight against insensitive portrayals of the LGBTQ community and pushing the idea of acceptance and respect for all Rangayan has been hosting the Kashish LGBTQ Mumbai Film Festival for eight editions Its just-concluded edition stood for “Diverse One” — implying acceptance for a broad spectrum of identities (LGBTQ) ethnicities abilities and disabilities and body types As the festival director Rangayan said he has noted a rise in the number of Indian LGBTQ films”The quality of filmmaking has improved exponentially and the diversity of subject matter is really astonishing “This year’s short films ‘Maacher Jhol’ ‘Sisak’ ‘Devi’ ‘Chudala’ ‘Naked Wheels’ and ‘Tremors’ … Also the two feature-length Indian films ‘Chronicles of Hari (Harikatha Prasanga)’ and ‘LOEV’ are fine examples of good Indian cinema That they happen to be LGBTQ-themed is just another aspect of these films” Even as digital platforms have opened the flood gates to otherwise inside the closet subjects hasn’t this widened the scope of such stories Digital platforms indeed offer a tremendous potential for content that has been marginalised till now It is free from encumbrances of star systems box office collections and censorship The content is also easy to be consumed on mobile phones and laptops “But this also has a negative impact of pushing the content into the closet where it is consumed privately I still advocate for mainstream release where the films are being watched on the big screen amidst people This removes the shame guilt anxiety of watching LGBTQ films openly” Rangayan is all for urgent change in the rule book of the country’s film censor board “Instead of censoring they should just rate it It is also very arbitrary and seems to be whimsical While my first film ‘Gulabi Aaina’ which didn’t have any risqué scenes was refused a certificate my documentary ‘Purple Skies’ which has the words lesbian transgender homosexuality in almost every scene got a ‘U’ certificate”My last film ‘Breaking Free’ which highlights the human rights violation by police and government against LGBTQ community got an ‘A’ certificate with just one word beeped That is indeed progressive But as I said it totally depends on the collective personal opinion of the committee and their perceptions of what the film advocates “We definitely have to have a more progressive and liberal rule book for certifying films in India so that independent cultural voices are not suppressed” With a right wing government in power is the voice of LGBTQ activists getting heard “I personally feel that the present government has not implemented any major changes that impinges on LGBTQ rights either in a positive or negative way There is status quo which was also the case with the previous government “The point of concern is that when MPs like Shashi Taroor raise the issue of Section 377 in Parliament it is met with resistance or ridicule We are still waiting for the Supreme Court to begin hearing on the curative petition and that has been delayed way too long”Meanwhile Rangayan is looking forward to his next film Evening Shadows which tells of how when a son comes out of the closet he pushes the mother into the closet as she is unable to share the truth with anyone For all the latest
