ABDUS SATTAR has received neither any award nor applause from government, still he is the proverbial straw for the drowing man. He sits on the bank of Yamuna river to rescue anyone who falls into the river. So far he has saved hundreds of lives. He came into lime light when a school bus fell into the Yamuna from Wazirabad bridge of Delhi and he rescued several school children. He says it is his duty to save lives. Forty five year-old poor Abdus Sattar started diving in the Yamuna at the age of 18 to find coins to satisfy hunger and was able to collect 50 to 100 rupees. Meanwhile, a woman in a suicidal attempt jumped into the Yamuna and was rescued by Abdus Sattar. This incident changed his life. Now instead of finding coins, he finds lives in the depth of water. In recognition of his humanitarian services Sahara India Group has recently given him an honorarium.

A Muslim’s love for Shrimad Bhagvad Gita, Upanishads and other Sanskrit literature could not spare him from the wrath of Hindu communalists during anti-Muslim pogroms in Gujarat.
Dr Sayeed Mushkoor Ali, head of English department at Government Commerce College, Gandhinagar, has written papers on teachings of Shrimad Bhagvad Gita and Upanishads and their influence on literature, which have been presented at seminars and published in international journals on literature.

Waheeda Rahman, a legend, graceful, unassuming, down-to-earth and poised, broke the ice after a long interval in a show Rendezvous with Simi Garewal. She was very much nostalgic about her films, co-stars, directors and, of course, about Guru Dutt. She focused on the constructive role of cinema in society but she was aggrieved at the contemporary Bollywood trend which revolves around violence and obscenity.
