Dattatray Jagtap, Chairperson, Mumbai division, said a leak was not possible A day after the HSC Marathi language paper was reportedly leaked minutes before the start of the exam on WhatsApp, several purported versions of the Secretarial Practice (SP) question paper were allegedly doing the rounds on the instant messaging application, students and coaching class owners said.

Sohan Singh Sona, who owns Khalsa Sweet Mart in the area, said that ever since the one way traffic has been introduced, autorickshaw drivers are refusing passengers due to so many turns being blocked. For example, he stated that the commuter coming from the road near Hyatt Regency towards Datta Mandir Chowk, cannot take a right turn, while the commuter coming from HDFC Bank lane towards Datta Mandir Chowk, cannot take a left turn. Given one way road, vehicles are travelling so fast that a person cannot cross the road walking, he said.On Thursday, Feroz Mohammad Sheikh, a resident, submitted a letter to the DCP, Traffic Branch, in which he has opposed the one way traffic plan. Sheikh said that the many of the traffic signals in Viman Nagar have not been working since the past many months, for instance, the signals near Datta Mandir Chowk, Krishna Chowk and Ganpati Chowk. Instead of diverting the traffic, the officials, should have corrected the existing problems, he stressed. Sheikh added that in the coming one or two days, the residents and shopkeepers will come together for a protest march against the one way traffic move.

We said if you want to construct hospital, school or hostel, then the state government can do it (from its funds). They said they will look into the Act and scheme. "
You had written Dance like a Man in the 1980s and the story is set in an even earlier time. Do you think the subject of the stigma attached to a man who wants to dance is relevant today? Yes. I believe the subject is still relevant. Perhaps a small section of our society is open to the idea of professional male dancers. But by and large it is still considered unmanly, although dance requires an athlete 's stamina and muscularity, along with rhythm and grace. But the play is really a metaphor about finding the balance within. Like all internal conflicts, they can never be irrelevant.

Many feel Thespo 's lifetime achievement award conferred on you is actually more of an honour for the youth theatre festival. I have no such grand delusions about myself. It is an honour to think that people consider me for an award. I 'm flattered. Were you always interested in acting and the stage? I was always interested in acting right from early childhood. I remember being fond of mimicry and imitating people around as a young child. Almost everyone who saw me then would tell my parents I 'd make a good actor. But that didn 't quite work like that while you were in Bhave school, Pune, did it? My school ndash; Bhave School ndash; has always had a great tradition in dramatics. Several of its alumnus like Smita Patil, Rohini Hattangadi and even Sonali Kulkarni have gone on to make their mark as actors. There I was made to act in a school play at a very young age. Despite preparations, when I was pushed on to stage by the teachers, I froze. But when I gathered my wits and began speaking I knew not only my lines but everyone else 's too. I then kept on watching a lot of Marathi plays and was fascinated by great actors like Nanasaheb Phatak, Keshavrao Daate, Mama Pendse and Master Dinanath. Later, in high school, I started appreciating the acting of Hollywood legends like Paul Muni, Spencer Tracy, Laurence Olivier, Greta Garbo, Norma Shearer and Ingrid Bergman. At that stage, fascination for acting was there, but fear still lurked. So though I didn 't pursue acting immediately I was drawn to it. That had to wait till you joined medical college. Yes. When I entered medical college, I began acting. In those five years, I did five major plays and 10 odd one act plays. All that appreciation and applause had me hooked and I could think of little more than acting. Later, I specialised in ENT and began practicing. Since my father was an established doctor and I was good at my surgical skills, my practice in Mumbai and Pune began flourishing. Yet, the love for theatre persisted hellip; and with like minded drama lovers, one was part of the Progressive Dramatics Association set up by our chemistry professor. Juggling medicine and theatre was not easy. But I felt enough was enough when I was away in Africa for three years. Unable to act, I thought my life had come to a standstill. That was when I decided when I returned to India, to give up medicine and act full time. And was that easy? You know, when you love something, you just push yourself. It was not an easy choice at all. I was 42 in 1969 when I switched careers. The way you reprised the title role in Natasamrat by V V Shirwadkar is still seen as the gold standard in acting by many actors and audiences. It was by no means an easy role. It would require plunging into the character 's pathos and reaching out to audiences. But then for a good actor no role is really easy. When people still recount the protagonist Ganpatrao Belwalkar 's voice, mannerisms and nuances asking me for my secret technique, it makes me smile. Not only Natasamrat, for every role, I just read it repeatedly and the character comes out. Then you just fill in the blanks in between. In fact, the secret of my acting is that I 'm a thief. When I watch any good actor, whether Marathi, Hindi, Kannada or even British, I just observe how they walk, talk or deliver their lines and pick up things from their style, amalgamating it with mine. Many blame your heart attack on your involvement with the intense King Lear like character in Natasamrat. It also reportedly took a toll on Datta Bhatt, Yashwant Dutt, Satish Dubhashi, Chandrakant Gokhale, Madhusudan Kolhatkar and Raja Gosavi who played the title role after you? That is because the role is so demanding. And most of our actors are not fit. As a doctor, I know I wasn 't. At that time, we did not know any better. There was no one to advice us on the dos and don 'ts, on how much and no more. We just plunged ourselves into acting without any concern for health, diet or exercise. And that can be very unhealthy... You have acted in several iconic films like Pinjara, Saamna and Sinhasan. What do you feel about the kind of Marathi cinema being made today? I have not been watching enough. There are some really good films that are still being made. I liked Deool and Walu. But you must understand that all art forms struggle through their childhood to find their footing, after birth, reach their zenith in youth, then age and begin to decay. But would you agree Indian cinema 's making rapid strides with its realistic takes on life. Personally I don 't think so. For a country of our size and given the sheer number of years we have been at it, when you compare our work with the best in the world, we still fall woefully short. The Hindi film industry has a long history of limiting those with acting chops to character roles like comedians, villains, et al. Did you feel trapped despite giving an award winning performance in Gharonda? I don 't believe in this blame game business. We all make choices and decide what we want to do. Every actor in the world feels this kind of insecurity. And I can understand that. But the reality is that the actor is not the original, the script and its writer are. Without it, you are nothing. As an octogenarian, when you look back, is there anything you 'd have done differently? Lots of things. While I 'd still like to be an actor, I think I could lose the ego. This whole notion of I am the best, can be a bit too much.Sugar amp; spice and all things nice...
