When acid attacks become a weapon of patriarchy | Letters
Amid moves to curb acid attacks in the UK, ActionAid’s Danielle Spencer explains how the organisation is helping women targeted in BangladeshThe UK’s new voluntary code for retailers not to sell under-18s products corrosive enough for use in an acid attack (Report, theguardian.com, 7 January) is an encouraging preparatory step towards legislation. ActionAid works with women who have survived acid attacks in Bangladesh, and we know that for legislation to stop attacks it must be supported by change to the patriarchal attitudes inspiring them.In 2002, the Bangladeshi government restricted the import and sale of acid in open markets, setting up special courts to deal with cases. ActionAid’s work contributed significantly to this, but the laws took years to reduce attacks.

Honda launches special-edition City, Amaze and WR-V
Honda has launched special editions of its Amaze compact sedan, City sedan and WR-V compact crossover in India. The special-edition model for the City will come with a ‘20th Anniversary Edition’ emblem (to commemorate its 20th anniversary in India), while the Amaze (due for a replacement soon) and the WR-V wear ‘Pride Edition’ and ‘Edge Edition’ monikers, respectively. Honda City 20th Anniversary Edition The 20th Anniversary Edition of the City gets a chrome garnish on the side and centre of the front bumper, on the lower edge of the doors and on the boot lid. With this special-edition model, Honda is also providing a one-month free subscription to its Connect app. This model is based on the top-spec ZX variant and is available at a price of Rs 13.75 lakh for the petrol-CVT variant and Rs 13.82 lakh for the diesel-manual variant. Honda Amaze Pride Edition On the outside, the Amaze Pride Edition gets door protectors on the outside. Honda, however, has added a handful of features on the inside, which adds a tad more value to the existing model. The interior package borrows the DIGIPAD infotainment system from the City, which is a 7.0-inch touchscreen system with navigation. The package also includes leather seat covers with ‘Pride Edition’ embedded on them, a front centre armrest and a new steering wheel cover. Honda has also added rear parking sensors. The ‘Pride Edition’ is based on the Amaze S(O) variant, and is priced at Rs 6.30 lakh for the petrol variant, and Rs 7.83 lakh for the diesel. Honda WR-V Edge Edition The WR-V, launched in 2017, is Honda’s first compact crossover in the country and for a few months had outpaced the City in terms of sales to become a bestseller for the carmaker. The WR-V Edge Edition comes with the same 16-inch alloy wheels but with a gunmetal finish, a rear camera with a display on the inside rear-view mirror, rear parking sensors and the Honda Connect app with a one-month free subscription. The base S variant has been used as the base for the WR-V Edge Edition and is available at Rs 8.01 lakh for the petrol and Rs 9.05 lakh for the diesel.

Mukkabaaz (The Brawler) review – Bollywood boxing epic takes on caste injustice
Vineet Kumar Singh stars as a low-caste boxer fighting for respect in Anurag Kashyap’s heavy-hitting social critiqueAn eclectic run of credits – bizarre psychothriller No Smoking (2007), Devdas update Dev D (2009), crime diptych Gangs of Wasseypur (2012) – have established writer-director-producer Anurag Kashyap as Hindi cinema’s foremost moderniser. He took a beating on Cotton Club-like period folly Bombay Velvet (2015), but his latest, Mukkabaaz (The Brawler) is a canny comeback bid: a heavy-hitting social critique disguised as a rock ’em-sock ’em sports movie, following the attempts of angry lower-caste boxer Shravan (Vineet Kumar Singh) to claw back personal and professional satisfaction after walloping the well-connected coach whose mute niece the boxer was wooing.Kashyap’s own struggles to stay mobile within a stiflingly regulated, sometimes rigged system never seem very far from the surface. This film-maker’s preference for no-holds-barred realism over the prevailing comforts of melodrama manifests in characters who spit and curse, use the toilet and land genuinely wounding punches; the songs following them into battle mix the poetic with the colloquial (“I am as rough as a badger’s arse”). Kashyap’s preference for realism manifests in characters who spit and curse and land genuinely wounding punches Continue reading... [...]
