So, what did it signify? The Prime Minister''s speech and his itinerary suggests that he was addressing a domestic audience, or rather, a domestic audience made up of three constituencies. These were the troops in front of him seated in socially distanced rows of chairs in a desolate terrain. Elsewhere, there was the large constituency of former soldiers and veterans outraged by the Chinese ambush who are politically significant because at times like this they help make the political weather. Encompassing both constituencies was the nation at large waiting to hear how its Prime Minister, avowedly committed to meeting military aggression with swift retaliation, planned to deal with China''s violent encroachment.It became clear that the speech''s forward location did not betoken a more forthright posture. Apart from paying tribute to the valour and sacrifice of the soldiers arrayed in front of him, the Prime Minister spoke in general terms about the futility of 'expansionism' and India''s readiness, despite its peaceful nature, to defend itself against aggression. In keeping with the tenor of his speeches to India''s Chief Ministers and the recent all party conference, he did not name the enemy.

Among the many things that writer director Anvita Dutt s Bulbbul gets right, the role of the Thakur s haveli or mansion is particularly impressive. From the moment we see the film s protagonist, the titular Bulbbul (Tripti Dimri) arriving at the old house after her marriage to the eldest thakur scion Indranil (Rahul Bose), it s clear that this haveli, gloomy on the outside and tastefully decorated from the inside, is going to be an important character, almost, in the story.In a crucial scene, we see Bulbbul and Dr Sudip (Parambrata Chattopadhyay) telling the younger thakur Satya (Avinash Tiwary) about one of the good doctor s patients a woman who was clearly getting beaten up by her husband.

PARIS: The French government on Friday called on Air France to avoid mandatory layoffs as the airline prepared to announce some 7,500 job cuts to cope with a collapse in travel due to the coronavirus pandemic. Managers at the airline, part of Air France KLM Group, are due to meet labor unions in Paris on Friday to detail the redundancy plans affecting some 15 percent of all employees, including pilots, stewards and ground staff. At least half of the cuts will likely entail voluntary departures and retirement plans, sources familiar with the matter said this week, while 1,000 jobs are likely to be cut at Air France s HOP airline. But the prospect of possible compulsory layoffs has raised alarm among workers and the French state, which has granted Air France $7.87 billion in aid to help it survive the pandemic.

Pannier Runacher said the government s aid package for the airline, which included state backed loans, was justified as the carrier was on the edge, but called on Air France managers to pursue cutbacks responsibly.
