Mumbai, Dec 8 Singer-composer Roopkumar Rathod recently launched his photo book “Wild Voyage”, and its foreword is written by none other than megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

“A lot of research has shown that, although we live in houses or buildings in the city, we are still cavemen at heart. The basic wiring in our brains and how we interact are the same as thousands of years ago. Nature is where we still belong. That’s why we all enjoy a walk in the woods, gazing at the stars, watching a sunset, being on a beach, or going camping.

“I thank Rathodji for sharing his experiences with us through his superb photography. He has my blessing for continued joy and success with his love for photography,” the testimonial read.

Roopkumar, who is best known for his songs “Maula mere maula” and “tujh mein rab dikhta hai”, launched his book on Saturday here.

From Waheeda Rehman to Helen, Asha Parekh and Satish Shah, several celebrities graced the event with their presence.

On charting a new territory, Roopkumar said: “Sometimes, we just need to listen! The jungle transmits the enchantment and mysteries of its surroundings to the questing pilgrim. It is my meditative space. The Earth has magic for those who believe in it. I have filled my canvas with moments that feel bona fide, vulnerable and uncontrived. Here I am, stepping off the edge with an open heart and this is my journey into the wild… My wild voyage!”

Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and singer Hariharan were also present at the event.

Jaipur, Jan 23 The controversial CAA and NRC issues reverbated at the Jaipur Literature Festival here as Bollywood actress and director Nandita Das on Thursday opposed the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and the National Register of Citizens and urged the people to raise their voice against these issues.

Addressing the media in the inaugural day of the Festival, she said: “India is a secular country, but it is happening for the first time when the people are being asked to be identified in the name of religion.”

“The nation faces many challenges today. Unemployment rate has shot up and the financial conditions are tough… at a time when you are being asked to prove you are an Indian, Shaheen Baghs are coming up everywhere following the Delhi trend,” the acclaimed actress said.

“This is being opposed and students have started a movement against it. Now, everyone should raise their voice against the law as everyone has the right to speak,” she added.

However, Das remained tightlipped over a war of words between Bollywood actors Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah
