It remained as just an idea," he said.     But Problem of Mani regarding this project was explained by himself like, "it is difficult to zero in on a right story. If I want to make a film with Kamal, it should better 'Nayagan'. Likewise, I should find a better script than 'Thalapathi' for Rajini. With this being the case, it is really difficult to find a script that would bring both of them together."But if his wish turns true, then will be the biggest celebration ever, for the duo actor fans and also the normal audience.   By Phani

Low fatty acids effects brain development of kids April 17, 2015 18:19

According to a study it was revealed that dietary deficiencies of fatty acids in fish oil and other foods limit brain growth during foetal development and early life. It has been suggested that omega 3 fatty acids, especially docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) play an important role in brain development of a child. To prove this a team led by Susana Cohen-Cory from the University of California used an in vivo animal model that tested the effects of maternal DHA deprivation on female frogs and tadpoles. They found that DHA-deficient brain tissue fostered poorly developed neurons and limited numbers of synapses, the vital conduits that allow neurons to communicate with each other."Additionally, when we changed the diets of DHA-deficient mothers to include a proper level of this dietary fatty acid, neuronal and synaptic growth flourished and returned to normal in the following generation of tadpoles," Cohen-Cory said.The dietary DHA is mainly found in fish, eggs and meat. Oily fish - mackerel, herring, salmon, trout and sardines - are the richest dietary source, containing 10 to 100 times more DHA than non-marine foods. So it is suggested to take fish while pregnant.

Margarita With A Straw Movie Review April 17, 2015 16:29

Laila (Kalki Koechlin) is a wheel-chair bound young woman. She is also frisky and free-spirited. How anyone can appear thus while dealing with a body that will not obey the commands of your brain, which is as agile, if not more, than anyone else’s, is something Koechlin manages beautifully. For the ‘abled’ to realistically portray a disabled person is incredibly tough: Kalki pulls it off, and makes us believe and invest in her Laila.In her Delhi University college, Laila falls for a cool guy (Dalha) who grooves. And learns, like all of us do, about rejection. In the US, where she goes for a ‘creative writing course’, accompanied by her mother (Revathy, reliably solid), she makes the discovery that she may, gasp, swing both ways.Her companions on this part of her journey, a visually impaired young woman (Sayani Gupta), and a cute guy in her class, are able to move past the tangled, wasted limbs to the girl, whose wants are clear to anyone with an eye, and half a brain. How this changed thereafter is the crux of the film?
