would appear to be a troublemaker’s indulgent take on religion and tradition They will not appreciate Sasidharan’s taut thriller that talks about the power men exert in public and private spaces of the ways in which they can worship the plastic idol of a goddess on a dashboard but not respect a woman of flesh and blood The Durga in the backseat is sexy because she is presumed to be a loose woman on the run she is anybody’s game Through long takes where there is little but aimless conversation and apparently harmless banter Sasidharan sheds light upon the symbolic violence of men against women and sometimes even other men The rot is deep and it is visible in the way men from different walks of life look at Durga she is not a person but a thing they must have some control over because what is a woman doing out in the streets with her lover at night Nobody knows but everybody has an opinion Is it surprising then that the most vocal opponents of S Durga are men in positions of power who view themselves as custodians of Indian culture Sasidharan’s film shows us the mirror especially those of us watching it men and women alike that we are complicit in the gendered hierarchies we have created; in the claustrophobic rules we have abided by without questioning them Soon it will be five years since the horrific gang rape on December 16 an event that inspired Sasidharan to make S Durga but has there been any change in the collective male mindset Or how women perceive their fate how they are conditioned to accept the injustices meted against them with shame and self-loathing S Durga shows us that patriarchy affects us all and the first step in breaking the cycle is to admit that we don’t treat marginalised disenfranchised people and women with much humanity in India But if the conversation is diverted to a lone question of religion and religious sentiments then we are losing the fight What will make the blind see Perhaps only Durga knows For all the latest Lifestyle News

capacity to reduce a person’s cognitive ability making one dumb according to a new study Assistant Professor Adrian Ward and co-authors at McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin conducted experiments with nearly 800 smartphone users in an attempt to measure for the first time how well people can complete tasks when they have their smartphones nearby even when they’re not using them The smartphone doesn’t even have to ring or vibrate but its mere presence can significantly reduce a person’s cognitive capacity even when it is switched if it’s off the study said In one experiment the researchers asked study participants to sit at a computer and take a series of tests that required full concentration in order to score well The tests were geared to measure participants’ available cognitive capacity — that is the brain’s ability to hold and process data at any given time Before beginning participants were randomly instructed to place their smartphones either on the desk face down in their pocket or personal bag or in another room All participants were instructed to turn their phones to silent The researchers found that participants with their phones in another room significantly outperformed those with their phones on the desk and they also slightly outperformed those participants who had kept their phones in a pocket or bag The findings suggest that the mere presence of one’s smartphone reduces available cognitive capacity and impairs cognitive functioning even though people feel they’re giving their full attention and focus to the task at hand “We see a linear trend that suggests that as the smartphone becomes more noticeable participants’ available cognitive capacity decreases” Ward said In another experiment researchers looked at how a person’s self-reported smartphone dependence — or how strongly a person feels he or she needs to have a smartphone in order to get through a typical day — affected cognitive capacity Participants performed the same series of computer-based tests as the first group and were randomly assigned to keep their smartphones either in sight on the desk face up in a pocket or bag or in another room In this experiment some participants were also instructed to turn off their phones The researchers found that participants who were the most dependent on their smartphones performed worse compared with their less-dependent peers but only when they kept their smartphones on the desk or in their pocket or bag “It’s not that participants were distracted because they were getting notifications on their phones” said Ward “The mere presence of their smartphone was enough to reduce their cognitive capacity” For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Top
