METRO PLUS

Healthy tips

The column “Body & Mind” (Thursdays, MetroPlus) makes useful reading. The author makes even boring health issues readable because of her lucid style.

The format is simple to follow and easy on the eye.

Looking back

The new series “Memories of Madras” that appears on Wednesdays in MetroPlus, offers interesting glimpses of the city that was. It makes great reading, particularly because of its first person narrative. Enjoyed KB anecdotes on the ways of the film world as they were during his prime and Achuthan Kudaloor’s recollection of the days when art wasn’t ruled by commerce.

Can’t miss the small “I Remember” bit which usually singles out unforgettable moments in the lives of these veterans who have done Chennai proud by excelling in their chosen fields. Keep looking back, it helps us connect with our past.

Reel and Real

The article “Mix and make it” (January 26, MetroPlus) was an eye-opener.

Though there is so much hype about Danny Boyle, Anil Kapoor, Irfan Khan, Dev Patel and Freida Pinto of “Slumdog Millionaire” fame, it’s sad that there was hardly any interview with Resul Pookutty, the sound technician who has won an Oscar nomination.

The article in MetroPlus not only gave Resul the space he deserved in your columns, but also managed to bring out facets in his life that reflect the essence of his headlines-making film.

Indeed an inspiring story of a man who willed to win no matter his modest beginnings.
