Wednesday Andy Murray has a relatively easy 2nd round match against World No 156 Andrey Rublev Reuters Top-ranked Murray plays Russian world number 156 Andrey Rublev for the first time as the five-time runner-up sets his sights on finally lifting the trophy It shouldn’t be a difficult task against Rublev who won his maiden Grand Slam match against Lu Yen-Hsun in the first round and is yet to win back-to-back matches at tour level Murray by contrast is looking for his 178th Grand Slam match win an achievement that would put him alongside Stefan Edberg in eighth place on the Open-era list "I’ve never hit with him or played against him but I’ve seen him play before and he goes for it He doesn’t hold back" Murray said "When you get out there things look a little bit different than they might on the TV or on the video But I’ll try to watch. and hopefully go in with a good strategy I’ll need to work some things out myself when I’m out there" Federer 35 has a similar situation against America’s Noah Rubin and the Swiss maestro admitted he knew "almost nothing" about the 20-year-old world number 200 "Did he play here last year Did he qualify" Federer asked "I know he’s a baseliner He makes a lot of shots I guess it’s not a bad thing for me I know it’s probably more on my racquet rather than playing a big server" Although Federer can expect only a light work-out from Rubin victory would potentially pitch him into a difficult third-round match against Czech 10th seed Tomas Berdych In the women’s draw world number one and defending champion Angelique Kerber takes on

Malayalam film industry Top News Actor Parvathy recently gave a no-holds-barred interview on a talk show hosted by RJ Mathukutty In an hour-long chat she candidly spoke about the good the bad and the ugly truth of the film industry Parvathy also recalled her struggling days when she faced difficulties in signing a film because she refused to give into lecherous demands made by some of the Malayalam filmmakers “There are people in the industry who ask women to sleep with them in order to get a role I have been asked They ask very blatantly as if it is their right I have said NO After a point when you have made a mark in the industry they won’t ask you” Parvathy said The interviewer asked her if the casting couch is practised in the Malayalam film industry too “Of course there is casting couch in the Malayalam industry I’m sure that you know that and I know a lot of people know that I don’t understand why it comes as a surprise at all It is there in many other industries also It’s a reality why are we even shocked about it” she asked She also noted that maybe film offers for her began to dry up in the past because she refused to toe the line of some people “I haven’t faced casting couch in any other industry including Tamil Kannada Hindi but only in Malayalam industry It was sort of an obligation See we gave you the break and I was like what break dude I already did my job and I don’t think I have to do anything more” she said Parvathy added that she was not trying to make controversial statements but she knows that everybody knew about this ugly truth “There was a time in the Malayalam industry it was expected of me It was asked very openly by senior actors and directors But I never worked with those people The movies I have done are not like that Maybe that’s the reason why I did not get to do films for a long time The thing is I didn’t care I did other movies in Tamil and Kannada Some people even tried to convince me that this is how the industry works And I was like in that case I don’t want to do it I will go and do something else… do my literature We (read women) should realise that we have the power to say NO” she said Parvathy is now dubbed as ‘Lady Prithviraj’ referring to her hard-earned stardom in Mollywood But there is always more to a story than what meets the eye She had her own share of struggles and trying times until she reached where she is today Parvathy also said that men use body shaming against women as a way to control them “I have been shocked at some senior actors who made lewd comments on my body They think it is normal and in fact I thought it was normal But much later I failed to see how that is a normal thing” she said while stressing that this is the mentality that leads to crimes like acid attacks against women Parvathy also suggested that she doesn’t feel angry about men who seek sexual favours from women as she sort of feel pity for them “Some of our life experience makes us weary of love and make it difficult to forgive others I don’t have anger and hatred towards the people who have asked me that” she said “How sad is that life when a man thinks that his manliness comes with asking sexual favours from a woman That’s the saddest way of being a man” she added Parvathy is currently basking in the success of her latest film Take Off which has received good reviews from the fans and media

of inflation could be attributed to many reasons Presently it is mainly due to the steep fall in the world prices of crude oil and commodities Related News There is satisfaction all around that inflation has declined The decline in the rate of inflation began in November 2013 (which was the month when both CPI inflation and WPI inflation had peaked) The decline has been secular and in November 2014 WPI inflation touched zero The numbers published in March 2015 estimated WPI inflation at (-)233 per cent and CPI inflation at 517 per cent Happy urban consumer None is happier than the consumer especially the urban consumer The happiest person is the head of the household because she is the one who buys most goods and services needed by the family She is still unhappy that prices of some food articles are elevated: the current rate of year-on-year inflation in cereals is 232 per cent milk and milk products is 835 per cent vegetables is 1126 per cent fruit is 741 per cent and meat fish and poultry is 511 per cent Behind every product or service there is a producer or service provider While consumers are generally happy producers are in distress The worst affected are the farmers Barring a few (who have managed to keep large holdings despite land ceiling laws) most farmers are small landholders and are poor According to the Situation Assessment Survey of Agricultural Households (December 2013) published by the National Sample Survey Office 40 per cent of the households of the country are classified as agricultural households The estimated number is 902 million and does not include agricultural labour (ie landless) households The Survey estimated that 70 per cent of agricultural households own less than one hectare The small landowner (less than one hectare) will always remain poor — unless he strikes oil or gold in his land He needs help He needs to supplement his farm income with non-farm income He needs help to migrate (or enable his children to migrate) to the non-agricultural sectors His children need to acquire an education and non-farm skills Given a choice — and this is very sad — he will give up farming But the vast majority of farmers do not have that choice What will they do tomorrow if they give up farming Unhappy producer-farmer Besides the rest of the country needs them to continue to do farming and will be horrified if they abandoned farming Who will produce the 96 million tonnes of wheat 103 million tonnes of paddy 184 million tonnes of pulses 355 million tonnes of sugarcane and 35 million bales of cotton that the country produced in the last agricultural year The farm sector is in deep trouble because of a fall in prices Take a look at the table sourced from the Centre for Monitoring of Indian Economy It contains the monthly average wholesale prices (that is what the producer can expect to get) across various markets in India during March 2014 and March 2015 The decline in prices has left the producer-farmer poorer and deeper in debt Compounding his woes are unseasonal rain drought thunderstorm (in Bihar on April 22) and the threat of a deficient monsoon as per early forecasts The Government has added to his woes by a paltry increase in Minimum Support Price (MSP) inefficient procurement increase in prices of fertilisers poor compensation for lost crop etc This situation did not emerge suddenly Every government has grappled with these problems The UPA tried to address them in different ways: introduction of MGNREGA in 2006 to supplement farm income/wages; farm loan waiver in 2008 to give partial relief from past debt; and generous increases in MSP between 2004 and 2014 The Food Security Act 2013 was an indirect supplement to income The Land Acquisition Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act 2013 was to give the small landholder an opportunity to exit willingly and migrate to other sectors of the economy These efforts paid off and agricultural growth during 2009-2014 recorded a historic high of 406 per cent Yet much remains to be done and every successor government is obliged to help the producer-farmers Deflation and its consequences The decline in the rate of inflation could be attributed to many reasons Presently it is mainly due to the steep fall in the world prices of crude oil and commodities Lack of adequate demand is another reason Increase in productivity could lead to increase in supply and contribute to decline in prices but there is no evidence of a sudden rise in productivity in the agricultural or manufacturing sectors Most commentators agree that there is inadequate demand: indicators of that are low growth rate of bank credit (126 per cent in 2014-15) decline in merchandise exports ($310 billion in 2014-15 as against $314 billion in the previous year) and the widely acknowledged fact of absence of new investments Consumers need to change their outlook towards producers Producers must make reasonable profits; if they make losses they will stop producing It is profits which sustain production employment and more investment Reasonable price increases are the only way to reward producers especially farmers and if that means a reasonable level of inflation consumers must accept it as a necessary concomitant of development Deflation is not an unmixed blessing Sometimes it can be more calamitous than inflation
