Are you got bore of the same movie reviews, celebrity news, gossips? for a change we analyse the advantages, disadvantages and prejudices the lefties face in a right-handed world.

When a mere four to seven per cent of the world’s population is left handed it’s only common to hear comments like, “Dude you are wearing the watch on the wrong hand,” or “How do you write like are you keeping the book upside down?” Being a lefty might get you some attention but it’s not easy being one in a right-handed world!


It’s considered a curse to be left handed in India. We do the good things with the right hand and the not so good with the left. The most common question right handed people ask when they see a person writing with the left hand is this: “With which hand do you eat?” The answer would most probably be a blank stare.

Not long ago, if a child was born left-handed most parents thought there was something wrong with the child. Some went as far as punishing the lefty kids whenever they held the pencil in the wrong (left) hand. There is also some religious background to the prejudice against lefties. In most religions the right hand is associated with the good while the left with bad.


There have been many theories as to why people become lefties. One theory says that a person becomes a lefty when he uses the right portion of his brain. According to medical science the hand we use is opposite to the portion of the brain we use. So a right-handed person uses the left-side of the brain and only the left-handed person used the right-side of the brain. Another theory suggests that being left-handed or right-handed depends on the strengths of a human being’s body. Most right handed people have stronger right hands than the left and hence the tendency to use the right hand more.


Though the taboo attached to being left-handed is long gone, lefties still have their share of problems. A lot of products are by default designed for right-handed people. Be it the mouse, keyboard, pens, machine tools, scissors, cars, or musical instruments, all are specifically designed for the right-handed.


Well left-handed people are thought to be more intelligent, creative thinkers, good writers. Left-handed people also make good lovers as they are used to making compromises in a right-handed world. This makes them easy going and understanding. Left-handed players are also preferred over their right-handed counter parts in sport. In a cricket crazy nation like ours, a left-handed bowler or batsman is always preferred. Sports aside, being left-handed means getting noticed and that’s a great advantage.

Below is the list of famous lefties.

Actors: Amitabh Bachchan, Charlie Chaplin, Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, Vishnuvardhan (Sandlewood)
Statesmen: Mahatma Gandhiji, Barack Obama, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton
Businessmen: Bill Gates, Henry Ford, David Rockefeller
Scientists: Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Benjamin Franklin

Priyanka's come back in kannada movie Shrimati

AFTER a five-year break following her marriage to kannada superstar Upendra, H2O fame Priyanka is back to enjoying the buzz in Sandlewood. And she’s making a comeback in kannada movie Shrimati - a remake of hindi flm 'Aitraaz' starring akshay, priyanka and kareena - starring Uppi and her, which is currently under production.

“Although I’ve been in touch with acting doing Bengali films during my break, I was nervous when I reported for the shooting of Shrimati,” confesses Priyanka, whose last kannada film with Uppi was H20. Facing the arclights with Uppi felt a little strange, she adds. “Earlier, it was different — he was my co-star. But now, I see him at home and back again on the sets! So, it feels a little different to approach each other professionally,” smiles the Bong beauty. But being a real-life couple has its advantages, she adds. “There’s a scene in which we’re lying on the bed and talking — it came naturally to us. We do it all the time at home after the kids have gone to sleep,” she says. But Priyanka’s hopes of spending quality time with hubby on the sets were quashed on day one of shooting. “Uppi’s never around me, and is always rehearsing his dialogues or writing something. He gives his shot and goes away; most people won’t even have a clue that we’re married!” she laughs.

Most real-life couples create a lot of interest when they team up on-screen. Will Uppi and her pairing up stoke the audience’s curiosity? “I’m sure our chemistry will fetch a good opening. So many fans have been asking us to do a film together for years. My cook, who didn’t get to see our wedding, says he’s eager to watch our maduve scene in the film!” she says.

But she’s having a great time essaying Uppi’s reel-life hendthi, played by Kareena Kapoor in the original. “Earlier, I didn’t understand any Kannada. Now I’m comfortable with the language since I speak it at home. But there have been some funny moments when I had to mouth long dialogues like, ‘Vichaarane maadakke anumathi kodabeku,’ and I’d be exhausted at the end,” she laughs.

Bollywood siren Celina Jaitly is also in the film: she plays a scheming woman, played by Priyanka Chopra in Aitraaz. Was Priyanka insecure about her intimate scenes with Uppi? “I was a bit. I prefer not to be around when they’re shooting such sequences,” she admits.

Now that she’s back in the corridors of Sandalwood, would she like to continue acting? “Yes, because it has brought my confidence back. It’s not an easy job, considering I have two kids. But I’m happy being back where I belong, especially since it’s with Uppi,” she says.

Parvathi Menon liplock scene with Kannada actor Srinagar Kitty

This kannada film’s release date isn’t confirmed yet, but Sandlewood is already buzz with the news that Parvathi Menon has a kissing scene with Srinagar Kitty in Male Barali Manju Erali.

And when we called the actress on Friday evening, she confirmed the news.

“Lip-locks in films aren’t new to Indians. There have been sensual scenes in classics that have become masterpieces now,” she says in defence of the kiss in her film. And Parvathi cannot understand why such a fuss is being made over something as harmless as a kiss.

“Films depict all sorts of things — pain, fear, anger, rape and murder. But no one ever questions any of that. But there’s always a hullabaloo made when it comes to a liplock,” she says. The actress emphasises that the kiss is integral to the story. “Films are a reflection of life, and in Male..., it’s the characters, Sneha and Vishwas, who share an emotional and intellectual bond. So the kiss was necessary to take the story forward,” she maintains, adding that the scene was not intended to be a gimmick.

“We don’t want people to watch the film just for that one scene. And we don’t want them to run it down just for that one scene either. Male... should be watched and judged as a whole,” she maintains. “Hats off to Vijaylakshmi ma’am (the kannada director) for ensuring that the characters are not compromised. There’s a solid reason for every scene,” she adds.

Here are the pictures/photos/wallpapers of hot Parvathi Menon.

Kannada actor Ramesh gets busy

With two of his kannada films being launched the same day, the kannada actor-director has a lot on his hands these days.

For Nammura Mandara Hoove Ramesh Aravind shaved off his moustache. For his new kannada film Duru Guttu, Ondu Sullu, Ondu Nija, the actor has grown handlebar whiskers.

After wrapping up two films in 20 days flat, director Dinesh Baboo will take another 20 days to shoot Duru Guttu.... He has also written the story, screenplay and dialogues for the film, and will handle the camera for it. Another of Ramesh’s untitled new film is a remake of Malayalam film Chandralekha.

Sarita Jain (of Machcha) is its leading lady. The mahurats of both the films was held on June 9.

After he took to directing films, it has been only one film at a time for Ramesh in the last couple of years. But now there is a bonanza awaiting his fans as he has just completed dubbing for his friend Mohan’s Krishna Nee Lateaagi Baa. A film to be directed by Ramesh himself is likely to go on floors after the two new films.

MALE BARALI MANJU IRALI - Kannada Music Review

This is from the kannada music director of hits like mungaru male,milana but unlike his previous films this one will be known for his bad songs. :(

'Yeno agide' and 'Ondu ninna' are painfully 90s Anu Malik material. Even Aadesh Srivastava! What are they doing in Mano Murthy’s repertoire? 'Gelathi neenu' may be using the ever-dependable Sonu-Shreya combination but the tune has lost its dependability long back, since it has been over-used by Mano anyway.

The title kannada song is an embarrassing string of silly English words amidst minimal Kannada while 'Ondsala ondu' is no better despite Kunal’s exuberant vocals.

'Vidayada veleyalli' is pathetic pathos while 'Jaga jagiso' is atrociously tuneless. The short bhajan Vijayambike serves to showcase Manasi’s singing skills. Mano Murthy’s music is woefully inadequate here!
