Churchill not entirely to blame for Bengal famine | Letters
Winston Churchill’s confidant, Frederick Lindemann, poorly advised the war leader, argues Charles SharpBruce Ross-Smith (Letters, 11 May) is unfair in blaming Churchill entirely for the Bengal famine. Most historians blame his confidant and adviser, Frederick Lindemann, for advocating the policy of redirecting food ships to the Atlantic from the India-Australia route. Churchill was probably unaware of the future consequences amid all the turmoil of war planning in 1942-43. Lindemann is a darker, more controversial figure. Had his interference in the development of radar succeeded, we would have lost the war. He was the primary advocate of the RAF’s role in area bombing and “de-housing”. Apart from the civilian casualties it caused, it diverted resources from tactical support by the RAF to the army and navy. Undoubtedly Churchill was a flawed character, but not a genocidal leader. Confronted by “the abyss of a new dark age”, Churchill’s oratory inspired resistance and formed a great alliance that defeated the far greater evils of Nazism and Japanese imperial expansion. He deserves a Nobel for that.Charles SharpLondon  • Join the debate – email guardian.letters@theguardian.com Continue reading... [...]

Beyond Bollywood: where India's biggest movie hits really come from
The global success of fantasy epic Baahubali 2: The Conclusion underscores the power of the country’s billion-dollar ‘regional’ film industryThe global success of SS Rajamouli’s fantasy epic sequel Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has once again brought Indian cinema to the attention of the world. Its forerunner, the $31m-budgeted Baahubali: The Beginning (2015), grossed $100m worldwide but caused little more than a ripple outside India. Within the country, it made waves because the film, made in the south Indian Telugu and Tamil languages, saw the Hindi-dubbed version alone gross more than $20m. Related: Baahubali 2: The Conclusion review – joyous action epic soars Pan Nalin’s Angry Indian Goddesses, ​billed as India’s first female buddy movie, ​sold to 61 territories Continue reading...
