10 Dec. The Department of Film and Television Studies at the University of Warwick will always be special to me. Yesterday I paid a short visit, probably the last one! Two special places at the Warwick: Dept of Film & TV Studies and also the much visited library!
To my bad luck none of my favourite staff members were there: Dr Jose Arroyo, Prof. Martin Pumphrey or Prof Stephen Gundle. Then in the library: Mr Richard Perkins!
I said a hell to Dr Alastair Phillips, and also to two of the office staff: Tracey and Anne Birchal.
And then, I had to come back!
The film project at the door to welcome Film & TV Studies enthusiasts:
Broomed. That’s how The Telegraph headlined the humbling of Congress in the four states where Assembly elections were held. The pun was also on broom, the Aam Aadmi Party symbol, in the headlines run by The Hindustan Times and Mid-Day.
Deccan Chronicle and Statesman chose to pitch the results as semi-finals. But Aam Aadmi Party was the flavour of most headlines — and rightly so. The debutant had upset the veterans’ election cart.
Get a feel of how the top ten newspapers of India summed up the momentous election results.
