Our Voice And Yours

Britain’s new Prime Minister Boris Johnson has at least three Indian-origin faces in key Cabinet posts. Apart from Priti Patel, who is the country’s first Indian-origin Home Secretary, the Cabinet features Johnson's fellow Brexiteer Rishi Sunak, and Alok Sharma.

Priti Patel - who quit as international development secretary in 2017 after holding unauthorised meetings with Israeli officials - succeeds Mr. Sajid Javid at the Home Office, where she said she would focus on keeping the UK country safe and fighting "the scourge of crime".

Rishi Sunak, who has been appointed as the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, was elected as the Member of Parliament from Richmond (Yorks) in 2015. He is the son-in-law of Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy and writer Sudha Murthy.

A businessman, Mr. Sunak studied in Oxford and Stanford universities. He grew up in the area where his father was a general practitioner in the National Health Service and his mother ran a chemist’s shop.

Alok Sharma, who served as the Housing Minister in 2017 and Minister of State for Employment form 2018, has been appointed as the Secretary of State for International Development. Prior to his election to the Parliament in 2010 from Reading West, Sharma worked in the banking sector for 16 years.

Arangetram: Rishika Sai Makkena


by S. Ramamoorthy
While I was watching Rishika Sai Makkena’s Bharathanatyam arangetram as one among the many, I went nostalgic recalling the old famous quote, "There is no wisdom or knowledge, no art, no craft or action which is not found in Natya". Rishika is a student of Guru Jeyanthi Ghatraju.
