Analysts say the coveted award for Chiranjeevi is part of the BJP’s strategy to pressure his younger brother and Jana Sena party leader Pawan Kalyan to be with the saffron camp.

By Amarnath K. Menon: ‘Megastar’, as Konidela Chiranjeevi is known in Tollywood (Telugu film industry), is an accomplished artist with an impressive track record spanning almost four decades during which he starred in over 150 films and gained wide recognition. Then Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur announcing on November 21 Chiranjeevi’s choice for the coveted honor of Indian Film Personality of 2022 at the 53rd International Indian Film Festival ( IFFI) was a welcome surprise for Telugu moviegoers.

Coincidentally, the honor comes a day after Chiranjeevi admitted he was not cut out for politics. On November 20, speaking at an alumni association meeting at YNM College in Hyderabad, he explained why he failed in politics. “I can’t conclude something if it doesn’t come from my heart. If you want to shine in politics, you shouldn’t be sensitive,” Chiranjeevi said. “In politics, you have to verbally attack others and be prepared to tolerate what others say. You have to be cheeky. At some point, I started wondering if I really needed it.

This is after Chiranjeevi’s Praja Rajyam Party (PRP) played a spoiler role in Andhra Pradesh Assembly polls in 2009 and subsequently became an ally of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA ), merging with Congress; Chiranjeevi was even a minister in the UPA government led by Manmohan Singh.

Yet, while admitting his limitations in politics, Chiranjeevi certified his youngest brother, “Power Star” and the founding leader of the Jana Sena Party (JSP), Pawan Kalyan, as fit for politics.

Chiranjeevi’s comments and choice for the award came barely a week after Prime Minister Narendra Modi was set up with Pawan Kalyan for about 30 minutes at the INS Chola guesthouse in Visakhapatnam on November 11, during a a visit to the port city. Modi had previously met Chiranjeevi at the July 4 unveiling of a statue of freedom fighter Alluri Sitharama Raju in Bhimavaram.

Modi and Kalyan have known each other since the run-up to the 2014 general elections and the Andhra Pradesh Assembly polls. The JSP leader campaigned with Modi and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chairman N. Chandrababu Naidu against YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s rival YSR Congress. While the alliance won in the 2014 elections, the BJP-JSP alliance faced a near-total rout in the next Assembly polls held in 2019, allowing the YSR Congress to take power with Jagan Reddy as chief minister. Kalyan, who did not personally contest the 2014 assembly elections, lost both of his constituencies in 2019 while his party managed to win one seat.

Still, Pawan Kalyan seems determined to do what Chiranjeevi promised but could not hold in Andhra politics in the next Assembly polls (2024). During their meeting, Modi appears to have advised Kalyan not to rush into an alliance with the TDP this time and instead continue with the BJP or go it alone. The prime minister also reportedly assured that the BJP and the Union government would support him in all his endeavors.

However, after this meeting, the JSP leader was virtually silent on alliances, although he continued his vehement attacks on Jagan Reddy’s government. He may be hesitant about whether he should follow Modi’s advice or his own conscience. Analysts say the BJP is keen to make the most of it and that choosing Chiranjeevi for the coveted film award was part of the strategy to pressure the younger brother.

While admitting his limitations in handling the turmoil of politics, Chiranjeevi also maintained that his brother was adept at taking on political rivals and that Kalyan would one day achieve his goal of becoming big in politics. “You are all with him. With all of your blessings, he will one day reach a top position,” he said. Last month, Chiranjeevi said his support would definitely be with Kalyan and hoped people would give him an opportunity in the future. “Since childhood I have known him for his honesty and commitment. It has not been polluted anywhere. We need such a leader,” the ‘Megastar’ said of the ‘Power Star’.

The BJP also sees Kalyan as a potential alternative given the likelihood that the TDP’s electoral prospects are dwindling. Internally, however, the chair of the JSP’s Political Affairs Committee, Nadendla Manohar, is skeptical about the impact of her party’s move away from the TDP. Manohar and other JSP leaders have suggested that their party leader make his own decision instead of relying on the BJP, which has only a token presence in the state. Some of them claim that the BJP is trying to make its presence felt at the expense of the JSP.

Tollywood’s “Power Star” has star power, but that alone is insufficient to counter the YSR legacy enjoyed by Jagan Reddy or the political cunning and organizational skills of Chandrababu Naidu. Pawan Kalyan intends to tour all 175 Assembly constituencies to take stock of people’s grievances and target the YSR Congress government. But Kalyan’s Jana Vani program is suspended. Whether to go with the BJP, as in 2019, or team up with the TDP and the two communist parties, or go it alone is a dilemma he is unlikely to resolve anytime soon.

For now, the JSP, like Chiranjeevi’s PRP which had the support of the Kapu caste cohort of the family in addition to the disillusioned youth, can count on similar support. But that’s only enough to be a spoiler in the polls. Kalyan’s political ambitions and aggressiveness are far greater than those of Chiranjeevi. After staying away from the electoral race in 2014 and tasting its challenges in 2019, he will run again, hoping to create a surprise – 2024 is likely to be a make-or-break election for him.

We’ve been waiting for “Dead to Me” Season 3 for far too long. Imagine our excitement when we finally saw the trailer grace our screens. It’s one of the most exceptional shows of recent times that explores female grief, companionship and healing without a sanitized filter. It’s a crazy, crazy show, and as we go through the events of the first two seasons of “Dead to Me,” it would be good to remember that the show’s real strength is its strong emotional core that lays at through the interactions between the characters. That being said, let’s dive into it to refresh our memory, and we’re ready for the masterpiece that’s going to be season three.


Season 1: recap and end

Jen Harding is a recently widowed real estate agent dealing with her emotional turmoil after the violent death of her husband. At a bereavement support group, she meets Judy Hale, a woman who claims to have lost her fiancé. The two bond almost immediately, and it’s clear that Judy may be the only person Jen is able to relax and let loose with. But there’s a wrench thrown into this blossoming friendship when Jen learns that Judy’s fiancé is, in fact, alive. Jen is furious and confronts Judy right away. She no longer wants her to be part of the support group, but the group demands that Judy be allowed to give an explanation. She reveals that she broke up with her fiancé because, after five miscarriages, the couple understood that she could not give him a child. The group decides that Judy has good reason to cry, but Jen is still not on board. Later, she goes to visit him at the nursing home where Judy lives and works. She understands her situation better now and asks Judy to move into her guesthouse. That night, they both go out and Jen tells him that she investigated her husband’s death on her own and is looking for cars that might have dents. Later, Judy looks at her own car in the garage, which has a dent. Things escalate as Jen learns that her husband has been having an affair with someone, and the two friends meet her at a bar, where it is revealed that he has been pretending to be a widower to be with her. Jen is heartbroken even more, and she and Judy go to a retreat, where the latter meets a man named Nick. Unfortunately, he turns out to be an officer who investigates hit-and-run cases. As Jen and Judy’s friendship deepens, Judy briefly reunites with Steve, which makes her think she is pregnant. She breaks up with Nick, who doesn’t take it well. However, it later turns out that Judy is not pregnant and will never be able to have children.

The investigation into the death of Jen’s husband continues and a new lead surfaces in the form of Shandy, a neighborhood girl who had kept a piece of the crash site as a memento. It’s a piece of Mustang, and Jen deduces that it must be the vehicle responsible for her husband’s murder. When Judy learns of this, she panics and meets Steve, who assures her that he completely dismantled the car. But things are not as easy as they seem. Judy learns that Jen blames herself for her husband’s death as they both had a fight which caused him to storm out of the house which is when he got run over . Unable to bear the guilt any longer, Judy confesses that it was her. Jen is shocked and asks him to leave. The next day, she installs security cameras and burns all of Judy’s possessions. She goes to the police and tells them of her findings, but they have already figured it out through one of Judy’s paintings in a place owned by Steve. They tell him they can’t arrest him because Steve is being investigated for fraud.

Meanwhile, Judy empties her joint account with Steve to give the money to Jen. Furious at this, he comes looking for her at Jen’s, where, after a small push, he reveals that he was the one who made Judy flee the scene of the accident. When his demeanor turns threatening, Jen ends up shooting him. She immediately calls Judy, who had attempted suicide. “Dead to Me” Season 1 ends with the two women staring at Steve’s body floating in the pool.


Season 2: recap and end

At the start of season 2 of “Dead to Me”, we realize that Jen had not shot Steve in self-defense. Instead, she repeatedly banged her head in rage after he said some very unsavory things. Judy returns with Jen and Detective Perez warns Jen to be careful with her decisions as it could mean very bad news for her. Also, Steve’s identical twin brother, Ben, is back in town and he’s minding Steve’s business. On the other side, Nick still isn’t handling his breakup with Judy very well. Detective Perez offers him a job, which he refuses, but he gives him all the evidence he has collected against Steve and Judy. Going back to Steve’s corpse, the women have it stored in a freezer in the garage, but that turns out to be a bad idea when they’re infested with rats. Jen decides to throw him into the Forest of Angels. As for Ben, he recruits Jen as a real estate agent after knowing that his brother previously worked with her. Things start to develop when Jen’s son gets caught in Steve’s car. It gives her flashbacks to some of the most hurtful things he had said to her, which reminded her of the night her husband died. She sends her son home and sets the car on fire. But that’s not the end of things. Judy starts seeing a woman named Michelle, but it turns out that after spending the night at her house, her roommate and her ex are none other than Detective Perez.

Later, Judy and Jen hold a vigil for Steve, where Steve and Ben end up kissing. We also learned that Judy was the one who gave the police information about Steve. In later episodes, Jen and Ben end up sleeping together, but the next day she tells him it shouldn’t have happened and it was a mistake. That night, Jen tells Judy it wasn’t self-defense when she killed Steve. Judy sympathizes with her, but this angers Jen even more, and she viciously blames Judy’s tendency to love anyone for the bare minimum. The next morning, Jen confesses her crime to Detective Perez and they go to the forest where he is buried. Meanwhile, Judy gives them a recording to Nick and asks him to listen to it alone. Things seem to pick up for the friends when Jen and Perez decide to let go of the past and move on. The police chief goes to federal prison for colluding with Steve, and Judy gets all the hidden money back when her paintings are returned to her. It looks like the two of them just got away with it. But it’s not “Dead to Me” if there isn’t a twist to the story. Jen and Judy return after buying Charlie a new car, the town council put up a stop sign at some point at Jen’s insistence, and just as they are about to drive through it, the car de Ben bumps into them in another hit-and-run after distraught upon hearing the news of the discovery of his brother’s bones in the forest. And that was the end of season 2 of “Dead to Me”.


What can we expect from ‘Dead To Me’ Season 3?

Now that our favorite black comedy returns, we can tell from the trailer that things are going to get a lot more confusing as Steve’s body has been discovered. But Jen and Judy will make it through being together. They both look guilty, and the secrets come to light with the initial hit-and-run that started it all. Literally everyone suspects them, but as we saw in season two, when you have the support of a few good people, you can get away with it. It would be interesting to see where Detective Perez’s loyalties lie this season. Also, to be honest, we think Judy has a lot more secrets to reveal than she’s letting on, so that would be interesting to watch. We’ve been waiting for this show for so long and expecting the final season of “Dead To Me” to be nothing short of spectacular. And that’s us, eagerly waiting for Netflix to drop episodes.

Cregg Castle, Corrandulla, Co Galway Asking price: €1.85m Agent: Helen Cassidy (087) 246 3748 and Savills Country (01) 663 4350

Once upon a time, Cregg Castle in Corrandulla in County Galway was about to become another gigantic luxury hotel with a golf course added to it; just like so many other great Irish country houses before and since, its future was to suck up an annual quota of liver-spotted Americans in shorts. Locals would only see his entrails at weddings.

In 2006, a consortium bought the place for 5 million euros and then obtained a building permit for 99 rooms and nine holes. But soon after, the Celtic Tiger imploded and all bets were off.

While a hotel would certainly have had benefits for the local economy, this outcome for Cregg would also have been downright boring. At least compared to Cregg Castle’s rock and roll decade since 2012 under the direction of Alan Murray, nephew of its former owners and oil artist.

Murray is the man who brought culture to Cregg and his promotion of its grounds and venues for events over the years has seen thousands pass through the 25,000 square foot country house.

close

Alan Murray has been Cregg’s tutor and promoter for a decade

But in 2008, seeing the beloved castle he grew up with mothballed and barricaded, Murray feared for his future. He realized that a building of his size must be constantly used to stay alive. So he came up with some sort of plan and arranged to give a presentation to one of his owners.

“I caught him in a Starbucks at Heathrow airport between flights. He listened and when I was done he said, ‘OK, you have the key. I think that’s the growing up around her that made that vital difference.

“What I offered them was to live in it and use it for events and activities, while maintaining it. Already the kids were breaking in at night for binge drinking and it was only a matter of time before they started a fire and Cregg was gone.

“When my grandparents first bought it in 1972, I was two years old. It was a great adventure to visit as a child. Later when my aunt ran it as a home hosts with a touch of traditional music, it has hosted a host of stars.The Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Pogues, Sinéad O’Connor, all have stayed there.

“And Dusty Springfield used to come to Cregg regularly. She wrote in the book that it was her “healing space.” The last photo of her taken before her death was taken at Cregg.

When he first opened it, Murray removed the boards from the windows. “I opened all the windows in the castle and left them open day and night, all summer. It dried it out. I had to pull seven or eight sacks of wood from the chimneys that the birds had left there. fall in. Cregg has 19 chimneys. And there were a lot of mice, rats, birds and bats in the residence.

Under Murray’s leadership, Cregg, for hundreds of years the exclusive seat of a stifling local aristocracy, sprang to life as a venue for all manner of colourful, artistic and new age activities, from music festivals to shop at bushcraft classes for children.

It has become a gallery for art exhibitions, a theater for circus performers, a setting for yoga, horseback riding, weddings, birthdays, photography events, meditative breathing and perhaps the most intriguing , Art Nude Day. Its Halloween events were legendary and one of them hosted over 800 people.

“Since I was the guardian of the castle, I refused many offers that did not suit me. Among them was a proposal for a giant sex party for 400 people.

One of Cregg’s main reception rooms

But eventually the bureaucracy started to make things worse. Many events were denied permission. “Otherwise Cregg could easily have been Emo, Stradbally or Slane from Galway. At one point I asked if we could use Cregg to house rough sleepers. The local authority said ‘no way’ .

So, more recently, Murray has maintained it as an eclectic Airbnb. “We have hosted hundreds of people here and most appreciate its quirky qualities. Although a few who didn’t had it complained that it wasn’t four star.

But for now, the party is over. Cregg has just been put back on the market, this time with a more modest price tag of €1.85m for the 25,000 square foot home with 175 acres including extensive woodland. And that takes a lot of work.

At current rates for renovating and restoring period homes, Cregg could cost around £5million to bring up to the highest standards with full insulation.

Its covered floor area is the spatial equivalent of an entire street of 25 mid-size three-bed semi-family homes. Not to mention the outbuildings and various adjoining buildings. Cregg was built in 1648 as the seat of the Kirwan family, one of Galway’s famous tribes.

In the mid-18th century, it was home to a truly mad scientist, the eccentric chemist, meteorologist and natural philosopher Richard Kirwan, who inherited it after his older brother was sent to a duel.

close

Richard Kirwan was a founding father of modern chemistry, but he also walked around with an eagle on his shoulder

Kirwan, who walked around with a huge pet eagle perched on his shoulder, had a laboratory built in the park (his ruins are still there) and his 18th century experiments on the relative density and attractive powers of salty substances would become vital steps in the development of modern chemistry.

But Kirwan was also a phlogistonist, adhering to the theory that the air around us was full of a combustible substance called phlogiston. He believed that too much phlogiston crowded out combustion.

Today we know that the absence of oxygen prevents combustion, not the congested presence of anything else. A collector of fossils, Kirwan lived only on ham and milk (ham is only cooked on Sundays) and he also had a pathological hatred of flies; inasmuch as he paid his servants a bounty for the dead. He also hated late guests to the point that he had the door knocker removed from the front door at 7 p.m. sharp every night.

Richard’s grandson would lose Cregg Castle in a game of poker to a member of another local family, the Blakes, whose coat of arms is today stamped on the black marble mantelpiece of the grand Hall.

Cregg was a tower house built either by Clement or Patrick Kirwan. Country house expert Mark Bence Jones estimated that it was the last fortified dwelling west of the Shannon to be converted into a country house. This process saw it enlarged with a large wing on each side.

One is as high as the original tower with a partly gabled facade and the other lower and crenellated. The Blakes sold in 1947 to Alexander Johnston, then it was purchased in 1972 by Martin and Margaret Murray, also then owners of the Salthill Hotel. Anne Marie and her husband Patrick then ran a guest house here until it was sold to the consortium.
With 175 adjoining acres, including pasture and mature woodland, the early 17th century castle is located 9 miles from Galway city centre.

It has an enclosed garden, a gate lodge and the new owners could revive the now expired hotel and golf planning permission. There is also a range of outbuildings and shops.

close

The former Kirwan family chapel as it is today

While Murray has made many of its rooms welcoming, others have remained untouched, a factor that has made it particularly attractive to photographers over the years.

There are too many accommodations here to list. It has more than 50 rooms and more than 20 others in its outbuildings. It comes with 12 bedrooms, many of which are ensuite. There is a traditional kitchen, a great hall, which doubles as a very large reception room, and many other receptions. The gate lodge has three bedrooms and Kirwan’s former private family chapel is still there.

close

An arched window with stained glass details

Alan still hopes to maintain his connection to the building. “I am forever grateful to the owners for letting me fulfill this role over the past 10 years that I have had the honor of living at Cregg. So my kids love it too. And if the new owners want me do it, I will definitely be interested,” he says.

James Butler of Savills Country launches the international market, while Irish castle home specialist Helen Cassidy caters to Irish buyers.

While Ireland is blessed with many dusty old castles, Cregg must be unique among them, not least for the enjoyment it has provided to guests and the local community over the past decade.

As another castle-based big-screen scientist used to shout:
“It’s alive!! It’s alive!!”

What is the Florida version of an Italian estate? The answer is this epic $32 million pad on the southeast coast of the Sunshine State.

Spanning a towering 18,302 square feet, the sprawling vicarage looks more like a Venetian palace than your typical seaside digs. In fact, it’s currently the largest home for sale in the coastal city of Jupiter. It is also located on the largest waterfront parcel in the area, which measures over six acres. So if you buy it, you’ll have two things to brag about.

Built in 2016, the Moorish abode features eight bedrooms and eight full-and-a-half bathrooms. Besides the gigantic residence and guesthouse, there is also a quaint private dock where you can park your boat and over 250 feet of water frontage with endless views of the Loxahatchee River.

The epic estate sits on the Loxahatchee River in Florida.

Adam Dooms Media for Corcoran Group

Leading up to the house you will find a long gated driveway which gives off a tropical feel from the start with palm trees lining both sides. This is Florida, after all. In the backyard, a two-tiered saltwater infinity pool with Moroccan glass tiles is the focal point of the outdoor entertaining area. An outdoor fireplace, kitchen, and patio also add to the ambiance. One of the most interesting features, however, has to be the rock grotto on the lower level of the pool. Sounds like something you might stumble upon in, say, Positano.

Inside, the home takes full advantage of its scenic surroundings with large windows that let in lots of natural light and offer views of the water. Thanks to its European influences, the enclave has been finished with tons of fine marble, stone, and custom millwork. It’s also fully furnished, so all those ultra-luxe touches are yours.

Florida Venetian Palace

The master bedroom incorporates Italian design elements, including a private loggia.

Adam Dooms Media for Corcoran Group

Other details include a home cinema room which has been outfitted with a large screen, projection system and leather seats. In the kitchen, meanwhile, a large waterfall island in Calacatta Paonozzo marble plays against custom white cabinetry and gold marble countertops. Not to be outdone, the master suite is a light and airy retreat, with a wet bar, sitting area, two dressing rooms and a fitness room. There is also a set of glass doors that open onto a loggia-style balcony overlooking the grounds, so you can truly pretend you are in a Venetian villa.

Jennifer Hyland of Corcoran owns the list.

Beautiful South singer Paul Heaton made a surprise appearance in Dublin this week, playing and sampling a few bags of pub crisps during his visit.

The former frontman of The Housemartins took to social media on Friday to reveal he had performed at three pubs in Skerries, much to the delight of locals.

The Liverpool native may have been the guest of honor this week, but for him one particular brand of Irish crisps ‘stole the show’.

“Skerries was awesome and thanks to the folks at the Coast Inn, Gladstone Inn and Redbank Guest House, but these little guys stole the show @Manhattan_ie,” the 60-year-old wrote.

The musician celebrated his milestone birthday in 2021 and had originally planned to go on a commemorative bike tour, visiting and performing in 60 pubs across Ireland and the UK in honor of the occasion.

After the pandemic curtailed his initial plans, the leader picked 60 pubs across Ireland and the UK and put £1,000 (€1,165) behind each bar so punters could enjoy free a pint and a bag of crisps.

Sharing a post for her birthday in May, the star wrote; “Then you and the regulars can enjoy a birthday drink on me (until the money runs out or the bar runs dry!)”

“The hope is to bring people together on the day, while recognizing that many people who have bought my records or shown me their support over the years could have a little party as we come out of COVID and meet potential financial difficulties,” he added.

Nine pubs in Ireland took part earlier this year, including Robinson’s Bar, Great Victoria Street, Belfast, Eddie Murphy’s, Thomastown, Kilkenny, Peader O’Donnell’s, Waterloo Street, Derry, The Punters Rest, Cahir, Tipperary, The Sky on the Ground, Whitewell, Wexford, Courtney’s Bar, Killarney, Kerry, Kehoes, South Anne Street, Dublin, Tig Cóilí, The Latin Quarter, Galway and Bonners Corner Bar, Ballybofey, Donegal.

A second video, which also went viral, showed the local police outpost in charge rushing to an autorickshaw with the injured girl in her arms.

Police Superintendent Kunwar Anupam Singh said: “The minor girl was found injured and local police rushed her to hospital for treatment.

A case has been registered in the relevant sections based on a complaint from the girl’s family, he said.

It is not known if the girl was sexually assaulted. No arrests have yet been made in this case.

According to the girl’s family, she had gone out to buy a piggy bank in the afternoon. When she did not return home until evening, her parents set out to find her.

The girl was found behind the guesthouse, soaked in blood and traumatized. The victim was then taken to the district hospital where a doctor examined him and referred him to Kanpur considering his critical condition. Local residents alleged that the girl was gang-raped and dumped there.

However, the police deny the complaint of the inhabitants. Gursahaiganj police station chief Manoj Pandey said it was too early to draw a conclusion and police were waiting for the girl to give a statement.
