with the contestants this time but they have to be spoon-fed every day by Bigg Boss and every weekend by Salman Khan The show is in its 12th week but the contestants don’t understand even the basic rules The contestants have made a joke out of the show And then of course you have people like Om (she vehemently refuses to address him as Swami Om) and Priyanka Jagga The standard of Bigg Boss has definitely gone down The show used to be about testing of mental and physical strength and it is weird that in its 12th week we can’t decide who can be a winner because it is difficult to find someone capable in this lot I really hope they get better contestants next time” Vindu Dara Singh – Winner of Bigg Boss Season 3 “I think getting commoners was a big mistake of the makers They would think twice before taking common people in the next season People like Swami Om and Priyanka Jagga belong to some different planet only Celebrities have suffered a lot this season more than the commoners This has been the worst instalment of Bigg Boss You don’t have a winner contender till now So you can imagine how bad it is The season has seen the dirtiest antics ever done on Bigg Boss” Suyyash Rai – Contestant of Bigg Boss Season 9 “I haven’t followed the season properly but I have seen some episodes and when I saw Priyanka Jagga speaking so rudely to Salman Bhai I was shocked You can’t talk to him like that In fact I have even watched her uncensored video and that was really crass Actually the common people are not answerable They have nothing to lose so they can cross the line It is not as if such things are happening for the first time on the show but celebrities are much more conscious because they have to work in the industry and be answerable to the fans I don’t know on what basis were these commoners chosen but I am sure the makers didn’t anticipate they would go to this extent Last season Priya (Malik) threw urine on Kishwer (his wife) but she wasn’t punished But I feel had she got some punishment it would have sent out a strong message that such things are not allowed on the show” Kamya Punjabi – Contestant of Bigg Boss Season 7 “This season definitely goes down as the worst but unlike others I won’t blame only the commoners I feel celebrities are no less this season When you come on the show you know you won’t be allowed to talk to anyone outside and you have to follow the house rules and perform tasks but here the case is totally opposite You can’t be so arrogant and take the game for granted and people have done that The thing which was most disgusting was when Salman told the housemates about Om Puri ji and his close friend’s demise Bani J was unmoved She had no reaction For her the immunity was more important How low can someone stoop I would never want to meet such a person in my life” Priya Malik – Contestant of Bigg Boss Season 9 “As far as the standards of the show it is a show about human behaviour it’s not the show’s standards but the contestants on it Human mind is a strange beast and Priyanka Jagga and Swami Om have proven that…I don’t even think it’s a commoner versus celebrity thing either In the past there have been instances like Kushal dropping dog poop on Tanisha and Kishwer spitting in Rishabh’s water and then pouring my urine on my seat to make me quit the task and me retaliating by sprinkling it “back” at her to stop her When the makers choose contestants they can’t predict our actions or our reactions I personally feel that this season would’ve been a lot better without Jagga and Swami Om It has had its good moments and also its depraved moments but the social aspect of it seems to be lost somewhere I want to watch it not just for its shock value but also for group dynamics which is the original premise of the Big Brother format” Also read |Bigg Boss is scripted winner decided by makers not public votes says former contestant Diandra Soares Bigg Boss 10 is just three weeks away from its grand finale

school Scene 2: Hannah’s stalker Tyler takes pictures of her kissing a girlfriend and once again it lands into the phones of the entire school The bullying gets worse Scene 3: A desperate Hannah reaches out to her school counsellor and tells him about feeling “empty” inside He misses the signs she slits her wrist Through scenes such as this Netflix’s popular and controversial series 13 Reasons Why tells the story of Hannah Baker — played by Katherine Langford (in picture) — an American high school student who commits suicide after becoming a victim of cyber-bullying sexual assault and vicious rumours She leaves behind 13 audio recordings for her friends detailing the reasons behind her decision and revealing in the process a dark world of body-shaming depression drugs and self-loathing Since its release on March 31 audiences are polarised — critics say it “glamourises suicide” while fans say it holds up a mirror to the realities of high school Netflix recently added a warning for viewers But that is just part of the commotion the series has triggered Several schools have issued advisories to students and parents against watching the show New Zealand has a special rating for it: RP18 under which parental supervision is mandatory for those under the age of 18 And Indie rock band Car Seat Headrest that composed a song for the show has slammed it “It’s kind of f**ed… writers: please don’t tell kids how to turn their miserable and hopeless lives into a thrilling and cathartic suicide mission” reads a post on Car Seat Headrest’s Twitter feed The American National Association of School Psychologists has also issued a public statement against the show: “Its powerful storytelling may lead impressionable viewers to romanticise the choices made by the characters and/or develop revenge fantasies” For its part Netflix has defended the series citing “members” who have told them that the show has “helped spark important conversations in their families and communities around the world” But does the series based on Jay Asher’s bestselling young adult novel of the same title and produced by American singer and actress Selena Gomez really “romanticise suicide” or does it as its makers argue confront the uncomfortable truths of high school “In 13 Reasons Why I saw the opportunity to explore issues of cyberbullying sexual assault depression… I recognised the potential for the show to unflinchingly explore the realities of suicide for teens” Nic Sheff a writer of the show told Vanity Fair The writer of Episode 6 says he was once a crystal meth user himself who like Hannah once tried to take his life Countering criticism around the “extremely graphic” depiction of Hannah’s suicide in the series Sheff contends that “the most irresponsible thing we could’ve done would have been not to show the death at all” “In AA they call it playing the tape: encouraging alcoholics to really think through in detail the exact sequence of events that will occur after relapse It’s the same thing with suicide To play the tape through is to see the ultimate reality that suicide is not a relief at all—it’s a screaming agonising horror” he says But the show’s premise notes Marissa Martinelli in Slate goes against everything we know about suicide its causes and means of prevention “It places the responsibility for a person’s suicide on the survivors of suicide loss creates a false illusion that a suicidal person can be in control after her death and offers up no alternatives for Hannah besides killing herself” she writes Writing in Vox Constance Grady lends some perspective to the row: “Aesthetically and artistically 13 Reasons Why’s approach to the material makes sense: It avoids turning the suicide into a soft-focus glamour shot that fetishises Hannah’s beautiful corpse… the controversy here… is over the level of responsibility artists have toward their audience and how much they have toward their art and what to do when those two responsibilities conflict with each other” The show and the advisories against it have also left parents in a fix about whether they should let their wards watch and discuss it for it may trigger “copy-cat suicide behaviour” The chief TV critic of Variety Maureen Ryan feels that asking children to not talk about the series would be akin to “banning hormones and backpacks” “The point is how do adults join the conversation… I think part of the reasons kids are watching 13 Reasons Why is because in a world where we’re practically drowning in content there are not all that many realistic depictions of assault depression… and going through the kind of casual but devastating public shaming that can take place now that so much of kids’ lives are online” Ryan writes In a recent interview to The Hollywood Reporter actor Brandon Flynn who plays Justin Foley on the show asserts that the show is relevant while recounting his own troubles with bullying and substance abuse “When I was in middle school I dealt a lot with people not being cool with me being into acting It put me in a dark space of not wanting to be myself… Many kids don’t know how to turn to their parents because their parents don’t offer that outlet I sure as shit remember feeling that way at that age” the actor says Much of the discussion around the series has been centered around parents and whether like in Hannah’s case they often fail to spot the signs of suicide “Parents of school bullies are dictatorial mean-spirited or absent They have no idea that their kids are getting drunk doing drugs or torturing their peers… Even Hannah’s well-meaning affectionate parents don’t see the signs that she was shrinking in front of them because they are too busy trying to keep their household afloat…” writes Melanie McFarland in Salon Several cousellors and mental health professionals have been “galled” at their portrayal in the show especially in the scene where Hannah’s school counsellor “shuts her out” “That’s unethical behavior School mental health professionals do not behave that way… It sends the message that school mental professionals are not a trusted source for help” complains Kathy Cowan spokesperson for the National Association of School Psychologists in The Washington Post Amidst the debate over the series it would also be worth listening to 19-year-old Maddie Robinson (name changed) a suicide survivor from New Zealand who argues that the criticism is reflective of the “stigma” in the society over suicide “The show isn’t about revenge suicide and justice It’s about how the little things add up… How we as bystanders friends and family may influence that Perhaps Hannah just wanted to be heard We need to stop the stigma and we need to talk about suicide” she writes adding “I fall into the category of people that others are scrambling in front of to protect from the show… We literally survived death; we can survive a TV show” Curated by Ankita Dwivedi Johri For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top NewsThe WikiLeaks “endorsement” of Narendra Modi has blown up on the BJP’s face A burst of tweets from WikiLeaks has denied that Julian Assange ever did anything of the sort Narendra Modi AFP Here’s the BJP’s Muktar Abbas Naqvi in full damage-control mode: The nation does not need a certificate from Julian Assange or WikiLeaks about Modi and neither does Modi to win the elections What the people want is just good governance Fair enough Indians often rightly complain about the disproportionate attention given to every bit of foreign attention – a Time cover a New York Times editorial and now a WikiLeaks mention But then those who complain vociferously turn around and go gaga whenever they see anything vaguely positive about them from the same Big Bad West Narendra Modi has not been shy about tomtomming crumbs of supposed approval from WikiLeaks Modi’s own blog went to town about it Talking about WikiLeaks cable about him Shri Modi on Tuesday mentioned ‘WikiLeaks cables are accurate I am glad to learn that America admits Modi is incorruptible’… He noted cable mentioned him fairly and said he was a ‘good Indian leader’ He said ‘to say a person in non-corrupt is one thing but the report that America has sent mentions me as ‘un-corruptible’ based on interactions with people’(The blog chose to bold that last bit presumably to draw even more attention to it) That bit of self-aggrandisement has led to the latest social media embarrassment — the striking black and white poster with a picture of Julian Assange and the quote attributed to him “America fears Modi because they know that he is INCORRUPTIBLE” It was apparently originally created as satire but over-excited BJP leaders happily shared it around as detailed by this blog on Outlook That’s drawn the quick and sharp Twitter smackdown from WikiLeaks for this “this fake #Modi endorsement” WikiLeaks is a big raw dump of classified data a mishmash of cables with all kinds of opinions rumours speculations It makes for fun reading because it gives an insider’s view into what normally inscrutable diplomats might be really thinking But it’s not the voice of an oracle Cherrypicking within that grabag of opinion and gossip for a gold seal of approval is a fool’s errand Now the BJP has ended up with egg on its face for three simple reasons Assange did not say it Julian Assange is no authority on India First off to quote him to bolster Modi’s credibility in India is ridiculous It’s even more laughable because Assange did not say it and Modi supporters including BJP office bearers passing the photo around did not bother to check WikiLeaks has since tweeted that the “incorruptible” quote actually comes from Gujarat Congress leader Manohar Singh Jadeja And even there Jadeja did not call him “incorruptible” He said that in Gujarat “even Muslims are now supporting him because he is viewed as someone who is incorruptible and can deliver the goods” Corruption is all in the eye of the beholder According to the Indian Express BJP national vice-president Purushottam Rupala and state party spokesperson I K Jadeja have been over the moon about what the WikiLeaks supposedly leaked They said in a press release "The government which has denied Modi as Modi now finds him as one with strong political willpower an able administrator as well as the only non-corrupt no-nonsense politician of India" One should look before one press releases Nowhere does WikiLeaks give Modi the “incorruptible” chhappa he and his supporters are boasting about At one point it says “Modi has successfully branded himself as a non-corrupt effective administrator as a facilitator of business in a state with a deep commercial culture and as a no-nonsense law-and-order politician who looks after the interests of the Hindu majority" But then the same cable goes on to say that “big-ticket corruption” is alive and well in Gujarat even if Modi has managed to purge “petty corruption at the mid- and lower levels of the bureaucracy” It quotes a journalist as claiming that large sums flowed into BJP’s party coffers for example when Reliance wanted to expand its refinery in Jamnagar The cable openly admits that those claims could not be verified but given an Arvind Kejriwal’s penchant for Ambani-Adani crony capitalism histrionics what’s to prevent AAP from giving these claims the “WikiLeaks seal of approval” as well Does the BJP really want to spend its energy on a Wikifight for the sake of a crumb of perceived praise Opening a can of worms The BJP has now drawn more attention to the rest of the report It’s effectively opened up an ugly can of worms In that same WikiLeaks Michael S Owen the American Consul-General in Mumbai also had this to say about Modi’s leadership style In public appearances Modi can be charming and likeable By all accounts however he is an insular distrustful person who rules with a small group of advisors…He reigns more by fear and intimidation than by inclusiveness and consensus and is rude condescending and often derogatory to even high level party officials He hoards power and often leaves his ministers in the cold when making decisions that affect their portfolios That sounds like exactly the kind of leadership style that does not work if you are the head of a large unwieldy and diverse coalition as opposed to a Gujarat The BJP can dismiss Owen’s assessment as biased ill-informed and uneducated But it cannot have it both ways – brandish the positives as gospel truth and dismiss the negatives as inconsequential and biased In fact there is actually something in the WikiLeaks cable that directly addresses the qualms many have about Modi and communal relations The consul-general is clear that he does not think Modi will “apologize or back down on the violence of 2002” But he also agrees with another Congress leader’s 2006 assessment that communal harmony would actually improve in Gujarat because Modi knew that a recurrence of anything like 2002 would doom his national chances Owen writes: Ironically the man most hold accountable for the communal violence of 2002 may now be the most ardent defender of communal harmony at least on the surface Obviously the BJP cannot come out and say this because it would be digging up the ghosts of 2002 which it wants kept firmly out of sight But this is really much more of a pragmatic “endorsement” of Narendra Modi than dressing up other people’s quotes about the incorruptible Mr Modi MALE (Reuters) – Former Maldives president Mohamed Nasheed was sentenced to 13 years in prison on Friday after being found guilty of terrorism for ordering the arrest of a judge when he was in power in 2012 The three-judge bench’s verdict was unanimous "The prosecution’s evidence proved beyond reasonable doubt that Nasheed ordered the chief judge’s arrest or forceful abduction and detention on Girifushi island" Judge Abdulla Didi said in the court in the capital Male An official in the office of President Abdulla Yameen confirmed the 13-year sentence Hundreds of Nasheed’s supporters some waving "Free Nasheed" posters had gathered outside the courtroom late on Friday ahead of the sentencing triggering concern about possible clashes after weeks of rising tension Countries including India had expressed concern about the trial and treatment of Nasheed the Indian Ocean archipelago’s first democratically elected leader In a statement in court Nasheed urged his supporters to come out onto the streets in protest according to a text released by his office "I appeal to all of you today to stay courageous and strong to confront the dictatorial power of this regime to change this government and work towards forming a government that would pave the way for the people’s development and prosperity" he said according to the text released after his sentencing The arrest of the judge triggered a crisis in which Nasheed has said he was forced to resign at gunpoint His allies say he was ousted in a coup Yameen became president in November 2013 in an election whose second-round runoff was cancelled when early results put Nasheed ahead When the second round was re-run Nasheed lost by a narrow margin and conceded defeat (Reporting by Daniel Bosley in MALE and Shihar Aneez in
