While children his age go ga-ga over Harry Potter films, 10-year-old Kishan S.S prefers to call the shots from behind the camera. The Bangalore boy, who has acted in several regional language films himself, is making his directorial debut with a feature film on street children, a feat that would make him one of the youngest professional film-makers in the world. “I was out on a drive with my father one day when I saw these street children,” he says. Kishan suggested making a film on the children, and his family supported the idea. “C/O Footpath” tells the story of a street urchin who gets to go to school and makes it big, his example meant to be an inspiration for millions of street children, says Kishan.

The number of tourists headed to India is increasing by 30 per cent per annum. This information was given at the Express Travel World-2006 exhibition.

The statement was supported by CEO and Managing Director of Thomas Cook, Ashwini Kakkar, who said one out of 12 people in India is employed in the travel industry. 
Various Indian states like Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Goa have put up stalls. Representatives from Dubai and Malaysia are also participating in the three-day exhibition.
Rampart Row (RR), a quiet street lined with tall trees in the heart of Mumbai, came alive on Valentine’s Day when the nine-day Kala Ghoda festival kicked off with a flurry of colourful cultural events.
Surrounded by the Jehangir Art Gallery, Prince of Wales Museum, Bombay Natural History Society, David Sassoon Library, the good old Rhythm House, which stores all kinds of music, the nearby Museum of Modern Art and swanky restaurants and boutiques, RR became the epicentre of art, music, literature, visual arts, film, dance and theatre. The road became a pedestrian zone with a colourful inaugural parade kicking off a series of events focusing on the arts. 
Dining, shopping, street plays and art exhibitions were the highlights of the Street Festival and a Workshop Festival featured daily workshops ranging from tai chi to kite-making.
