A Potpourri of Vestiges FeatureThe first Toronto Film Festival I attended was in 1986, and I came as a student journalist. Even back then, the Festival of Festivals, as it was known, had a reputation for an open, global outlook. But the diversity of its films wasn’t always reflected in the diversity of its press corps. As the years passed and I moved from film critic to festival director, it’s become ever more clear that we can all do more to include a wider range of voices in our conversations about the films we love.This year, TIFF committed to grow our accredited media list by 20 percent.

Perhaps, it has something to do with the remoteness of the place in context to mainland India which is connected to northeastern states by just a narrow stretch of land called Chicken’s Neck aka Siliguri Corridor.

When we talk of the northeastern states we are not only referring to the 8 states viz. Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura, and Sikkim but also to the 200 odd dialects and the people of vari...

A Potpourri of Vestiges FeatureThe history of post-independence India will always be bifurcated in what happened before Pokhran-II and what happened after. In May 1998, when India successfully conducted a series of five nuclear test explosions, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the then Prime Minister, declared India as a full nuclear state. What made it a truly historic occasion was the fact that India had not just conducted successful nuclear tests 24 years after Pokhran - I but had done so by hoodwinking the CIA, which acknowledged India’s triumph as its greatest intelligence failure. Surely, the success of Pokhran - II marked the beginning of India’s actual tryst with destiny. Under the leadersh...
