Travelling further from the 19th century, the period during which Kannada literature entered its modern period, the period of awakening aptly named X. It beckoned a new era of penning original works in modern kannada, simultaneously shifting focus from primitive kannada forms. Stalwarths of this form of kannada literature include- S.G Narasimhachar, Panje Mangesh Rao and Hattiangadi Narayan Rao During the 1950s, Gopalakrishna Adiga beckoned Y. With the elapsing and gliding by of the Gandhian era and its influences, a new era to put across modern sensibilities had arrived. The Y writers called to question the long established and age old standards of plot from the X period
This is a seventh part of a documentary called Phantom India, which describes India. This idea was first conceived by X when he visited India. He went back to his country, raised how much ever money was needed and came back with two friends, a camera man and a sound man and completed the seven part series in 4 months.
Beginning in 1964, X follows the antics of a large cast of characters in a shabby medieval kingdom. From time to time, the king refers to his subjects as “______". (The title is a take on a very famous work, combined with the Freudian psychological term, which represents the instinctive and primal part of the human psyche.) It deals with the goings-on of the rundown and oppressed mythical kingdom . It follows people from all corners of the kingdom, but concentrates on the court of a monarch . The strip's humour occasionally satirizes modern American culture, and deliberate anachronisms are rampant. Technology changes to suit whatever a gag requires; a medieval battle might be followed by a peasant using an ATM.
7.From whom to who?
X was inspired by a man the director saw in court. The man was charged with multiple murders, but had found the time to fall in love with a lawyer when he was attending proceedings. The man told the director how he committed his first murder. At the end of his encounter, the director held on to three things: "it took him half an hour to brace himself before the killing, he had high fever for three days after he gunned down his first victim. And the fact that he is in love with somebody." These elements found their way into the film. Another aspect of X was inspired by the story of a man who used to live in the same building as one of the director’s friends. The man and the friend would sometimes bump into each other in the lift and exchange pleasantries. Later the director came to know that the man had been arrested for a murder he had committed somewhere in Karnataka, and had been an absconder all this time. "[T]he thing about Bombay is that you may live for ten years as neighbour to somebody yet have no idea who he is," his friend had told him.
Y (named after someone who served the writer coffee) was conceived as "an anti-social element who lives by his own rules and who would not abide by the social rules and systems," a law unto himself. Even his questions would sound like statements because his "pride wouldn't allow him to make anyone feel that he doesn't know about something." The scene where Y grieves over Chander's death by abusing him is again based on a real-life incident. "A gangster lives on power" and Chander gets himself killed by not listening to Y, thus taking away Y's power to save him. "Grief [coming] out as anger was taken as the soul of Y’s character
The simple black and white portrait was taken by the artist’s good friend, and photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. X had met Mapplethorpe on her first day in New York City in 1967, when X accidentally wandered into his apartment looking for someone else. The two became close friends, even sharing the smallest room at the Chelsea Hotel (as it was all they could afford), where they would stay up all night and work on their respective art forms. Mapplethorpe has described his collaborations with X “like taking drugs; you’re in an abstract place and it’s perfect”. At the time the album was recorded, X was becoming well-known in the New York underground circuit, along with other bands such as Blondie and The Ramones. The photo was taken by Mapplethorpe using only a Polaroid camera and the natural light in the apartment. The record company made attempts to alter the image, but X would not allow it. According to X, Mapplethorpe only had one rule for the photo shoot; if she wore a white shirt, it couldn’t be a dirty one. “I got my favourite ribbon and my favourite jacket, and he took about 12 pictures”, recalls X. By the eighth photo Mapplethorpe had exclaimed “I got it.” In the 1970’s Mapplethorpe obtained a Hasselblad medium format camera and generally took photos of a wide variety of people, including friends, socialites and artists. By the 1980’s he concentrated more on photographing male and female nudes and flower still-lifes.
Scribbled secret notebooks, and wild typewritten pages, for your own joy Submissive to everything, open, listening Try never get drunk outside your own house Be in love with your life Something that you feel will find its own form Blow as deep as you want to blow Write what you want bottomless from bottom of the mind The unspeakable visions of the individual
The jewel center of interest is the eye within the eye Write in recollection and amazement for yourself Work from pithy middle eye out, swimming in language sea Accept loss forever Believe in the holy contour of life Struggle to sketch the flow that already exists intact in mind Dont think of words when you stop but to see picture better
No time for poetry but exactly what is Visionary tics shivering in the chest Entranced fixation dreaming upon object before you Remove literary, grammatical and syntactical inhibition Like Proust be an old tea head of time Telling the true story of the world in interior monologue
Keep track of every day the date emblazoned in your morning No fear or shame in the dignity of your experience, language & knowledge Write for the world to read and see your exact pictures of it In praise of Character in the Bleak inhuman Loneliness Composing wild, undisciplined, pure, coming in from under, crazier the better You’re a Genius all the time
X was performing with his band in one of the many underground pubs in England. Considered to be the gods during that period, a young Y stepped up and asked if he could jam with them. Y performed “Killing floor” which left the crowd mesmerized with them saying “He killed God!...Man” and X realized there was a new kid on the block.
English was chosen as the film's narrative since the characters are linguistically diverse. All characters were made to speak in English with their regional accent. Hence, X admitted in an interview that playing the role of a Tamil Brahmin did not come easy. X was forced to visit Chennai for two weeks to research her character. X also learned many characteristics, nuances and mannerisms native to Tamilian housewives. X took a close look at Tamil Brahmin lifestyles and customs in and around Mylapore, a cultural hub in Chennai and attempted listening to recorded conversations in Tamil Brahmin households to get a suitable Tamil accent which was imperative for the role.

The Flower of my Secret is a 1995 film by X. During the film one of the titular characters Leo talks about story lines for books. One of the stories is about a girl who kills her father after he tries to rape her and then along with her mother hides the body in a restaurant freezer. This went on to become the basic plot of X’s Y, released in 2006 which went on to become a big success commercially and did the rounds in all the award shows of that year.
London-based publishing house Faber & Faber recently announced the winners of their X book cover competition, wherein they asked students between the ages of 13 and 16 in the UK and Ireland to design a new cover for this classic novel. The winning design — judged by a panel that included the author’s daughter Judy — will be used as the actual cover for Faber & Faber’s new educational edition of the novel.
S.L Bhyrappa’s most famous novel Vamshavruksha was adapted to screen by Girish Karnad and B.V Karnath in 1971. It went on to garner critical claim with Girish Karnad winning the National Award for direction in that year.
The video featured a lusty X, dressed in a tight leotard, as a gym teacher trying to make several overweight men healthy. X repeatedly tries to make the men lose weight, but her plans fail and she leaves the room to take a shower. Suddenly, the men work out on their own, and they transform into muscular attractive men. In one part, one muscular man glances at his overweight self. X is shocked when she sees this, and starts to flirt with them. At the end, two of the men secretly go out, holding hands, inferring they are gay. X is surprised to see this, and so she and one of the overweight men play tennis. The gym setting may have been partly an attempt to divert attention from the overt sexual connotations of the term “Y". This was further emphasised by the twist comedy ending of the video, when the transformed men who are now oblivious to X's advances are ultimately revealed to be gay (this was also a source of controversy.
This movie is noted for its rapid-fire repartee, using overlapping dialogue to make conversations sound more realistic, with one character speaking before another finishes. Although overlapping dialog is specified and cued in the 1928 play script by Hecht and MacArthur,Hawks told Peter Bogdanovich: "I had noticed that when people talk, they talk over one another, especially people who talk fast or who are arguing or describing something. So we wrote the dialogue in a way that made the beginnings and ends of sentences unnecessary; they were there for overlapping”
What's most striking about this artwork isn't only its complete lack of resemblance to X's most iconic style, but also the fact that it remains largely unacknowledged by art historians and virtually absent from most of X’s biographies. Yet something about its honesty, of style and of circumstance, makes it a rare treat of creative history.
X started his career as an assistant director on the epic movie Gandhi. Govind Nihlani was also working on the same film. X went on to assist Govind Nihlani on several of his films before starting out on his own as an ad-film maker. X was offered to direct a film at the age of 24 but he rejected the offer since he felt he wasn't mature enough to direct yet. He directed his first film, Y at the age of 38. Seven years were spent on the research, pre-production and production of Y till it finally released in 1999 and was a hit both critically and commercially. X's next film titled A New Love Ishtory which is written by Vipul K Rawal of Iqbal fame and is 90% complete and will release this year.

X was born a rebel! Subject to bullying at an early age , X resorted to being gothic and his expressions of the same gained the attention of the university administration and led to his subsequent expulsion from oxford. In an unhappy marriage , he abandoned his wife , pregnant with their son Charles and (in imitation of the hero of one of his heroes, William Godwin's novels) he ran away to Switzerland with Mary, then 16, inviting her stepsister Claire Clairmont (also 16) along because she could speak French! All his works have been inspired by people he met during his lifetime. One of his most famous pieces of work was dedicated to a contemporary after his death .Henry David Thoreau's Civil Disobedience and Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi’s passive resistance were apparently influenced and inspired by X’s non-violence in protest and political action. An advocate for vegetarianism he is quoted as saying "Never again may blood of bird or beast/ Stain with its venomous stream a human feast,/ To the pure skies in accusation steaming“.

X was the first recipient of this Filmfare Award for her work on the song Y. This category of awards was initiated because of the rapid rise in popularity of this song. X had a relationship with her dance teacher when she was 14 and he was 43. Y became an instant classic for its choreography and notoriety for its suggestive lyrics.

A is a 1950 noir film directed by B based on the book of the same name written by W.R Burnett. A caper story of a planned heist gone bad due to bad luck and double crosses, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". The 1955 French film C which has been labelled as the best heist film of all time took much of its inspiration from A.
C was banned in some countries due to its heist scene which has been described as “master class in breaking and entering as well as film making”. It is said that the Mexican government banned it due to a series of burglaries that took place during that time mimicking the film’s heist scene. B was known to direct with the vision of an artist, having studied and worked as a fine art painter in Paris in his early years. During his 46 year career, he received 15 Oscar nominations winning twice and directed both his father and daughter to Oscar wins in different films.
His daughter D won the Oscar for Best supporting Actress for her role as imperious Maerose in the adaptation of the Mafia satire novel Prizzi’s Honour. D is also known for her collaboration with Wes Anderson in E, The Life Aquatic of Steve Zizou and Darjeeling Limited.
E follows the lives of three gifted siblings who experience great success in youth, and even greater disappointment and failure after their eccentric father leaves them in their adolescent years.
E is said to be heavily influenced by the Glass family, a group of fictional characters that have featured in a number of short stories by F, some of which are Nine Stories, Raise High the roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction and G. In G, a mention of Gustave Flaubert’s H is made. Many film adaptations of H are known including a hindi remake called Maya Memsaab directed by Ketan Mehta. His two major period classics include I and J.
J is based on the life of 19th century painter K, played by Randeep Hooda. He debuted in the 2001 film L, which depicts the romantic entanglements during a traditional Punjabi wedding based in New Delhi.
The director of L rejected an offer to direct M saying “...I would prefer someone else make it. I am better suited to emotions, human beings, and less interested in special effects” The theme music to M is given by N, who has had a long association with O composing music for all of O’s major feature films except for Duel and The Color Purple.
One of the rare films written and directed by O, P became a critical and commercial success leading to O’s first Best Director Oscar nomination.
In P, Gerard Depardieu, Philip Noiret were considered to play the film’s secondary character but it eventually went to Q.
Q is considered to be one of the founders of French New Wave. The French New Wave is said to have been influenced by Italian Neo realism, classical Hollywood cinema and poetic realism. R is known to be one of among the Italian Neo realistic film makers whose films usually offer a combination of themes including memory, dreams, fantasy and desire

He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning-fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips’ touch she blossomed for him like a flower and the incarnation was complete.
