Ram has come up with a new show titled India’s Best Judwaah with his twin brother Rajiv Laxman Related News After creating reality shows which test your mental and physical strength like MTV Roadies and Splitsvilla Raghu Ram is now trying his hands at something very different This time he is exploring the world of twins along with his own twin brother Rajiv Laxman The popular duo is back with their new show India’s Best Judwaah which is all about testing the connect between real life twins Raghu is quite attached to Rajiv In an exclusive chat with indianexpresscom he says through the show he wishes to correct certain beliefs about twins “People feel that there is a psychic connection between twins If you hit one person the other will feel the pain I want to show that this doesn’t happen There is a truth there is a reality to the world of twins it’s a very secretive world it’s very hard to understand but this will be the first time that we will be talking about it” Raghu said India’s Best Judwaa which premiered on Zee TV last weekend will have 11 pairs of twins from across India taking up challenges to prove their strength and connection Raghu Ram with his twin brother Rajiv Laxman But when it is about reality does having a twin bind the two separate individuals into one entity which they find difficult to escape “I think twins generally as a rule thrive when they are together There is an emotional dependence which can be crippling in many cases Twins look at themselves as one entity which is bizarre You don’t accept anyone else 100 percent truly and completely unless you have a twin Because the twin is you That is what is special about twins” Raghu added Raghu has often being credited for bringing reality television to India But with the influx of countless non-fiction shows does he think there has been a saturation of reality TV He said “The saturation is never about the number of shows Saturation is about the similar kind of shows What happens in India is if one subject works everyone goes after it We need to understand the culture that we live in rewards regression It will be successful but it may not be good for society I wouldn’t pander to regressive tastes Some channels do that and some shows do that and I wouldn’t want to do that I would change that” Raghu who is headed for a divorce with his wife Sugandha Garg had in a recent interview with indianexpresscom said that “Right now there is nothing new to report When it happens I will make the announcement in fact we will throw a divorce party” However his statement was taken out of context Speaking on the same Raghu tried to clear air He said “That became such a big problem I got ambushed I shouldn’t have said that because you guys reported it well you guys came out with saying that they have uncoupled but are still friends but other publications picked it up as ‘Raghu will throw a party after divorcing his wife’ That is very disrespectful towards my ex-wife it’s very disrespectful towards my marriage I have very fond memories of it and I am great friends with Sugandha” Raghu has lived with the tag of ‘television’s angriest man’ for years and he has no qualms about it According to him he doesn’t wish to change that or be called emotional at all “I have realised that it doesn’t matter what I say about myself There are so many people like Karanvir Bohra Rannvijay Singha Nikhil Chinappa who have said that Rajiv and I are sweet people but people’s opinions about us don’t change When it doesn’t matter what I say when their opinions won’t change why should I say anything That’s my point When you say ‘am I happy about angry man image’ I truly don’t care I don’t care to change anyone’s opinion because I have reached a place where it doesn’t matter now I want to put an end to that topic once and for all and say that I am a bad guy I have no good side and you should be beware of me” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online

term in regular parlance Ever since German chancellor Angela Merkel’s famous 2015 "Wir schaffen das"(We’ll manage it)speech Germany has emerged as a European nation taking in the most number of refugees Firstpost’s Nimish Sawant travelled to its capital Berlin as part of the Robert Bosch Foundation’s India – Germany Media Ambassadors program to see how refugees are trying to integrate into the German society This process goes much beyond just learning the language and knowing the customs and traditions While some are trying to keep their culture alive in a foreign land others are building a case for talented migrants in a society that is ageing fast While some hope to go back home when the situation improves others prefer building their lives anew in Germany This article is part four of the five-part series which will explore the stories of refugees living in Berlin After Chancellor Angela Merkel’s famous ‘Wir schaffen das’ (we’ll manage it) speech in 2015 the number of asylumapplications have been thus: 422000 in 2015; 722000 in 2016 and the first quarter of 2017 has seen around 278000 applications 2017 will most likely see a drop in asylum seekers in Germany considering the German government has reached an agreement with Turkey to contain the flow of migrants Germany has also passed tough asylum laws that are aiming for the swift deportation of asylum seekers whose applications have been rejected Among the European nations Germany has been an exception in terms of the number of refugees it has taken in The rehabilitation of refugees is a matter of debate still but it looks like Merkel’s policies are working to a large extent Yes there are resistance movements such as Pegida – a right-wing group which is against the Islamisation of German cities and parties such as Alternative fur Deutschland (AfD) which have tried to spread the anti-refugee message But according to many opinion polls the CDU at 40 percent (up from 34 percent last year) is the clear leader as compared to say AfD which is at 8 percent (down from 12 percent last year) But what do the asylum seekers who have been granted a Recognised Refugee status feel about their new homeland What are their memories from back home Would they like to go back to their home countries if the situation improves Firstpost spoke to four Syrian refugees living in Germany to get an idea of what being refugee means to them Mohammed a maths graduate “My name my photo and what I talk about are three things that cannot go together” said Mohammed as he agreed to speak to us about his experiences Mohammed came to Germany via Libya and Italy Having left his home in Damascus Syria in mid-2013 Mohammed ‘smuggled’ himself to Cairo Egypt before coming to Benghazi Libya where he worked with his brother for a year before the Libyan Civil war forced him to move to Germany Now a recognised refugee Mohammed conducts walking tours in Berlin which have a Syrian historical element to them He has also been awarded a scholarship to pursue studies in Germany which he is eagerly looking forward to But his immediate family is still back in Syria He hopes to get them to Germany someday Here is his story in his words Rasha Deeb and Akhil Amre artists As I made my way up his house 22-year-old Syrian artist Akhil Amre welcomed me in with his contagious smile Hiding behind him were walls and window openings hung with art work As the door opened you saw coloured canvas work of another Syrian artist living in the apartment – Rasha Deeb As you go inside the house the furniture is pointed towards the monochrome charcoal work of Akhil It looks more like an art gallery space than living quarters A ‘work-in-progress’ painting in one corner of the room adds to that impression Akhil Amre with his charcoal art work behind him Image courtesy: Nimish Sawant Akhil and Rasha are artists who escaped the Syrian war and are now trying to make a living in Germany Having landed in Munich after a 15-day boat ride followed by transfers through various border countries such as Lebanon Turkey Austria and others both the artists are trying to get integrated in the German society “The first step to getting integrated is learning the language We are required to put in 600 hours of studying German They take place form 8 am to 1 pm on weekdays We are doing it and at the same time continuing to do our art work as well” says Akhil While Akhil’s competence lies in charcoal art with themes covering gender equations war humanity among others Rasha prefers using colour in her work which apart from alluding to the ongoing Syrian war also touches upon her reflections of this new country she is living in Rasha Deeb’s portraiture work Image courtesy: Nimish Sawant Even though she has been a fan of Pablo Picasso Rasha claims that her work is not heavily inspired by the artists she loves “I come from a war-torn country and I have enough reflections of my own to be inspired I believe every artist in Syria has his or her own story to tell” says Rasha Having studied fine arts at the Damascus University Rasha’s areas of interest have been in sculpture and collage work amidst painting But since coming to Germany Rasha has focussed more on painting While she still does sculpting work Rasha says there are practical difficulties such as searching for a workshop taking care of the materials ensuring your noise levels are low and so on Akhil had to leave his art studies mid-way as the ongoing conflict made it difficult for him to continue He has also been trained in sculpting work A lot of Rasha’s work currently involves acrylic on canvas A common theme that stands out is a face which has varied expressions a bird like creature in one corner some negative space which she associates with ‘kaffan’ or a shroud among other things Her recent history is quite evident in a lot of these portraiture work One particularly poignant work that stood out for me was “Moving to another land” where you see a symbolic representation of a Syrian person looking back on her land as she is getting ready to escape the country – not sure whether she will return or not Akhil on the other hand has a monochromatic aesthetic To put it in his words his work tries to fall between surrealism and realism Off the bat one notices the theme of war in his work Be it the wearied face of the old man or the presence of a skeletal head on a desolate land which has a hybrid of a woman and horse looking out in the distance not sure whether to stay put or move ahead Gender equations though not very explicit do surface from his paintings as well “This is my interpretation of the German culture of Ordnung where people get worked up about the smallest of things something I find funny” Rasha Deeb Image courtesy: Nimish Sawant Their families are still in Syria and the internet is their only means of keeping in touch “Our families are safe right now We try communicating through the internet so long as the electricity is functioning back home” says Akhil Akhil and Rasha have had the opportunity to showcase some of their work at exhibitions held in South German cities They both hope to be successful artists But right now their priorities lie in completing their German language training with flying colours They also hope to keep creating more art along the way Part of their ambition is to showcase a different side of Syria which Akhil claims is seen only through the prism of the ongoing conflict “There is a lot of diversity in Syria in terms of food habits accents and cultural mores But here we get painted with just one brush” says Akhil He and Rasha want to change that in their own small way Fadi Zaim business graduate This business management graduate from Damascus University
