Losses made Qantas stronger says chairman

first_imgLast year’s economic and environmental challenges helped build a “stronger” Qantas, according to the airline’s chairman.Despite a statutory loss after tax of $244 million, the 2011/12 financial year positioned the group for a “sustainable future”, with the group’s portfolio “performing well” this year, except  Qantas International. Speaking at the 2012 annual general meeting last week, Leigh Clifford explained steps taken by management since August last year have equipped the airline “for success” in an aviation environment that has “changed dramatically” over the past decade.Among initiatives include the launch of the five year turnaround plan, which saw cuts of up to 1,000 jobs, renewed focus on Asia with the launch of Jetstar Japan and cuts on non-profitable routes. As well, the airline announced a new partnership with UAE carrier, Emirates, which although pending regulatory approval, is expected to takeoff from March next year. “We have had to make tough decisions, because a failure to respond would have threatened the sustainability of the group as a whole,” he said. “Management has re-focused on core strategy, building on the profitable parts of the business and addressing the weaknesses.“Important reforms that were not undertaken in the pre-GFC period are now being made, with a new management structure, new technology, more responsive customer service, and more efficient operations.”Improving its domestic operations, late last month Qantas announced the launch of flights between Sydney and the Gold Coast as well as an increase in flights to Tasmania. Chairman Clifford says the “tough decision” had to be made, “because a failure to respond would have threatened the sustainability of the group as a whole”.

APEC Strengthens Tourism Resilience Against Terrorism

first_imgTerrorism impacts on tourism to Turkey where tourism has fallen 50% since 2015APEC Strengthens Tourism Resilience Against TerrorismIf the world needed reminding of the extreme threat of terrorism against people exercising their right to enjoy leisure and tourism experiences, the hideous carnage in Manchester serves as a wake up call that terrorism is a real and present danger to all humanity and especially to tourism.Between May 8-10 2017, over 120 government officials, security experts and tourism industry leaders from 18 of the 21 APEC (Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation) countries gathered in Bali for a two day workshop to seek solutions to the threat of terrorism against tourism. The workshop explored counter-terrorism strategies and policies to protect tourism. It was the culmination of a wide range of activities and projects undertaken by APEC’s Counter Terrorism Working Group since 2010 and also involved work done by APEC’s Tourism Working Group.For readers unfamiliar with APEC, the 21 APEC economies encompass most Pacific rim countries. They include Canada, USA, Mexico, Peru, Chile, New Zealand, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Japan, Peoples Republic of China, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong SAR and Russia. They include some of the most powerful economies in the world. APEC includes a number of special interest working groups. The APEC Tourism Working Group and the Counter- Terrorism Working Group both have a strong focus on tourism and work closely with the UNWTO, PATA, ASEAN Tourism and the World Travel and Tourism Council.The Bali workshop brought together senior foreign ministry officials from APEC countries. Invitations were also extended to tourism specialists, security and police leaders and counter terrorism specialists. The current chair of the APEC Counter Terrorism Working Group is Mr James Nachipo from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.The workshop was held in the beautiful surroundings of the Inaya Putri Bali Hotel. Delegates were welcomed by Bali’s Governor Mr Made Mangku Pastika and the opening address was given by General Wiranto, Indonesia’s Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs.The speakers who followed covered a wide range of topics. Australian tourism security expert, Tony Ridley focused his attention on understanding the drivers of media coverage and its influence on shaping travel perceptions of countries affected by terrorism. During the same session Ms Fritanu from the Centre of Strategic and International Studies (Jakarta) discussed the impact of the Bali bombings 2002 and 2005 on tourism to Indonesia. Ms Rachael Doherty from the US Embassy in Kuala Lumpur explained how the US security services quickly restored confidence in tourism safety in Florida following the devastating massacre at a gay nightspot in Orlando in 2016 which killed 49 people, the deadliest terrorist incident in the USA since 9/11.Dr Petrus Golose Chief of Bali PoliceOne of the most memorable presentations came from Bali’s police Chief Inspector General Dr Petrus Golose. He gave a brilliant account of the development of community based, tourism orientated policing in Bali which he and his colleagues have developed since the 2002 Bali bombing. To add to an already impressive address he finished with a superbly sung rendition of Louis Armstrong’s hit song “Its a Wonderful World“. This was the act I had to follow.My talk focused on significant negative impacts of terrorism on tourism demand to destinations in which terrorist attacks targeting tourists had occurred (such as Turkey). I contrasted this with positive impact on tourism demand for destinations deemed safe, such as Japan, which has enjoyed 400% growth in international tourism arrivals since 2012. I made two key policy proposals to attendees. The first was to encourage all APEC counties to emulate the Australian and Canadian practice of the tourism industry leadership working in collaboration with foreign ministry officials to enhance the quality, accuracy, simplicity and dissemination of government travel advisories. My second proposal was to encourage all APEC countries to provide basic travel safety and security advice to international visitors arriving by land, sea and air. Some APEC countries including Mexico, Japan, Korea and Vietnam are already doing this. However, if it became universal practice, it would enhance the value of travel advisories for departing citizen passengers which implemented by most coyuntries. It would also be an exercise in duty of care as a host country.Ms Lin Tsai-Shiuan of the Police agency of Taipei and Ms Tsai Ming-Lon of Taiwan’s tourism bureau provided a detailed account of security arrangements for a major sporting event which will e held in Taipei. In the final session of Day 1 one of the stand out presentations was made by Mr Joseph Franco , Research Fellow from Singapore’s Centre for Excellence in National Security. His presentation focused on strategies to reduce the terrorist threat to tourists from Jihadist groups based on the Philippines’ island of Mindanao which has long been a centre of Jihadist activity sometimes targeting tourists and based on terrorist actions in Mindanao, this is a very live issue.On day two of the conference, delegates visited the memorial site for the 2002 Bali bombings.The morning presentations focused on regional approaches to counter-terrorism protecting tourists and tourism infrastructure. Professor Brent Ritchie from the University of Queensland provided delegates with a detailed background into the rapidly growing body of academic research into tourism safety and security. Professor Ritchie has made an outstanding contribution to this body of research.The conference concluded with a comprehensive range of recommended actions which have been passed on the governments of all APEC economies. Tempting as it is to detail them in this article, it would be counter-productive to let those who may wish to harm tourism know what measures are proposed to counter terrorist and security threats against tourists. (p) The Indonesian government and the Island of Bali were gracious and welcoming hosts to all delegates.Source = Dr David Beirman Ph.Dlast_img read more

Does Mays HPI Point to Another Bubble

first_img 10-City Composite 20-City Composite Case-Shiller National Composite 2017-07-25 Joey Pizzolato in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Headlines July 25, 2017 557 Views The question as to whether or not the housing market is approaching another bubble has been a topic of discussion amongst the industry, especially as home prices continue to rise while inventory shrinks. With each new report—housing starts, existing home index, new residential interest rates, and unemployment rates—experts are looking to see if the data points to a repeat of the mid-2000s crash.Tuesday’s release of the May S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller National and Composite Indices represents another anticipated piece of that puzzle. According to the report, on a national scale, which combines all nine U.S. census divisions, home prices showed a 5.6 percent annual gain for the month of May, the same amount reported in April’s indices. Year-over-year, the 10-City Composite was down to 4.9 percent from 5.0 percent in April, and the 20-City Composite shows a similar, albeit small decrease, down to 5.7 percent from 5.8 percent a month prior.So, does this point to an incoming bubble? According to David M. Blitzer, Managing Director and Chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones, it does not for a number of reasons, even though index levels for the National, 20-City, and 10-City Composites are nearing their peak 2006 levels. (The National Composite is 3.2 percent over the 2006 peak; 20-City, 3.7 percent under peak; and 10-City 6.2 percent under).“[While,] [h]ome prices continue to climb and outpace both inflation and wages, [h]ousing is not repeating the bubble period of 2000-2006: price increases vary across the country unlike the earlier period when rising prices were almost universal; the number of homes sold annually is 20 percent less today than in the earlier period and the months’ supply is declining, not surging. The small supply of homes for sale, at only about four months’ worth, is one cause of rising prices. New home construction, higher than during the recession but still low, is another factor in rising prices.”Even cities that have shown the highest rate of home price growth are showing signs of slowing. Namely, Seattle, Portland, Oregon, Denver, and Dallas. Seattle has shown a year-over-year increase of 13.3 percent, Portland 8.9 percent, Denver 7.9 percent, and Dallas falling to 7.8 percent.center_img Share Does May’s HPI Point to Another Bubble?last_img read more

densely packed urban center lies the New Territories a suburban mishmash of rugged hills and scruffy villages soaring new housing developments and vacant lots This is where over half of the territorys 72 million people live It could also be the resting place for your old PC or printer Up to 20% of all US electronic waste may be ending up in Hong Kong Not in some scrapyard in the developing world picked over by haggard children and wheezing laborers but in the backyard of one of the world’s most sophisticated financial capitals That at least is the claim of a new investigation which says the movement of these items is violating international treaties restricting cross-border transfer of hazardous electronic materials The conclusion stems from a two-year probe by Basel Action Network (BAN) a US-based NGO focused on protecting the worlds environment from toxic materials The group used GPS trackers to follow 205 pieces of discarded consumer electronics delivered to recyclers and other locations across America between July 2014 and February 2016 BAN says that of all tracked items 69 were exported with 66 of those leaving the US in possibly illicit fashion While the US has not ratified the Basel Convention these exports are nevertheless illegal imports in their destinations which have all ratified the convention A rule governing exports of cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors in the US also appeared to have been flouted the report adds By the environmental watchdog’s estimates as many as 43 shipping containers of e-waste could be illegally leaving American shores every day Electronic waste at a drop-off point for the Safe Disposal program in Brooklyn organized by the government of New York City Zoran Milich—Getty Images Jim Puckett BANs founder and executive director tells TIME that the practice of offshoring electronics supposedly destined for recycling has everything to do with money "Its extremely expensive to do it right" he explains saying that recyclers saddled with items like monitors and computers could profit more from selling them to brokers scooping up e-waste instead of trying to properly dismantle them Properly handling dangerous materials like mercury tubes takes considerable manual labor and cost Read More: Why You Should Never Throw Away Your Old Tech BANs trackers point to 27 recyclers that appear to have sent e-waste to countries where importing US e-waste is illegal One of them Total Reclaim in Seattle had been certified under BAN’s own e-Stewards program which explicitly bars participants from exporting e-waste Nine others are certified under R2 a competing framework that allows exports while 17 have not received any certification In September Total Reclaim was fined $444000 by Washington States Department of Ecology for illegally exporting flat screens and monitors containing hazardous materials reports Seattle-area PBS station KCTS which also documented a trip to Hong Kong made by BAN investigators The recycler’s e-Stewards certification has now been struck for two years The final known location for over half of all exported items totaling 37 was Hong Kongs countryside TIMEs attempts in mid-October to visit some of the 47 unique dumping sites identified in the report were largely fruitless One such site located near Lau Fau Shan an area otherwise known for its oyster beds was more than 15 minutes walk from the nearest bus stop Container lorries and construction trucks rumbled up and down Deep Bay Road a single-lane carriageway without any paved sidewalk Upon arriving at the coordinates supplied by Puckett the location was found to be boarded up and sealed off from outside view In its previous investigations BAN would find containers of e-waste unloaded in New Territories junkyards sorted and then transported to mainland China for further processing the environmentally damaging recycling and dismantling in the Guangdong village of Guiyu has been well documented throughout the past decade However since stringent regulations came in force in 2015 authorized electronics recycling in Guiyu has become limited within an industrial park and smuggling e-waste into the notorious village is now impossible explains Puckett "Ironically" he says a first-world location like Hong Kong has become a new “ground zero” for processing e-waste Unwanted items are dumped near farms in Hong Kong’s New Territories on Nov 6 2013 Bobby Yip—Reuters In June investigative reporters from Chinese-language news outlet HK01 working in association with BAN found workers at some of these sites extracting precious metals like gold from circuit boards and electronic components by heating them in open air HK01 also found that soil samples collected at these junkyards some of which have seen fires break out previously contain shockingly high concentrations of poisonous heavy metals For example one sample contains chromium a highly toxic carcinogen at almost 500 times Chinese safety limits “Its mind-boggling but it almost seems to us that the EPD [Hong Kong’s Environmental Protection Department] almost seems to be trying to avoid prosecution" of these sites Puckett tells TIME Two weeks after BAN’s report was published between late September and early October a string of raids took place in Hung Lung Hang a rural area just over a kilometer from the border and allegedly rife with illicit recycling facilities The multiagency sting operation resulted in over 3500 confiscated LCDs but no arrests according to a government press release Puckett was disappointed by Hong Kong regulators actions “Its not difficult to prosecute these operators” he says The EPD tells TIME in writing that it confiscated 150 tonnes of waste CRT monitors and 580 tonnes of waste LCD panels from 3200 inspections of shipping containers between 2011 and 2015 resulting in 99 prosecutions for violations related to e-waste and over 80 convictions It also says that between August and September 2016 10 containers of waste circuit boards had been intercepted and returned to their points of origin Read More: Electronic Waste: Where Does It Go and What Happens to It BAN’s investigation meanwhile turned up US recyclers who appeared to not have full knowledge of the eventual destination of the e-waste they had received In one instance a printer dropped off by BAN with a recycler in Massachusetts ended up with another in Vermont and was subsequently shipped to the Chicago area before finally ending up in "Mr Lais Farm" an e-waste junkyard in the northwestern New Territories An attempt by TIME to visit "Mr Lai’s Farm" found that an access road to the area had been completely sealed off with corrugated iron sheets The area peppered with container yards and low-density rural residential developments appeared to be under construction work A small pile of printers and LCDs was seen near a barrier Greenpeace activists lower a banner on a cargo ship allegedly carrying illegal US electronic waste shipment in Hong Kong on June 14 2008 AFP/Getty Images Hong Kongs EPD notes in its response that new legislation covering all hazardous e-waste including previously unregulated items like printers was expected to come in effect in 2017 But Greenpeace campaigner Andy Chu tells TIME that there’s more to ending e-waste dumping “The key of the problem is not how strongly laws are enforced but how customs can intercept [e-waste] at points of import” he says “When amending relevant laws there needs to be a clear distinction between e-waste and second-hand electronics That way importers wont be able to import e-waste under the pretext of second-hand electronics" Speedier customs clearance is another area where Hong Kong can do better according to Chu Under Hong Kong law importers have up to 14 days to submit to customs an “accurate and complete import or export/re-export declaration” That gives unscrupulous importers of electronic waste all the time they need to mask the true nature of what they are importing As for the US.

of control shit” Write to Rachel Lewis at rachellewis@timeinccomCorrections appended June 4 2014 On June 5 1989 Jonathan Chan arrived at Beijing airport with two swollen bumps visible on the back of his head In a line of tired and weary student demonstrators eager to slip out of the capital if not the country the 24-year-old slid his hand into his pocket fingering the single roll of film he had rescued moments before his camera had been smashed by Chinese soldiers A journalist standing next to him took notice quickly explaining how he might break open the roller overexpose the images and protect himself if he were stopped by airport immigration Then Chan walked to the front of the line and waited for the inevitable question "Were you on the square” the immigration official asked “I was” Chan said expecting to be detained Frowning the official leaned in “Then go and tell the world” the official said softly before waving him through For the past 25 years that’s exactly what Chan Lam and Lee have tried to do As leading student activists from Hong Kong they played a vital role in the protests at Beijing’s Tiananmen Square not only as fundraisers and couriers of supplies for their fellow protesters but also as emissaries of information able to evade Communist Party censors by returning to Hong Kong then still administered by the British and enjoying a vigorously free press and communications regime to share their stories They arrived in Beijing in late May 1989 eager to join the call for a more open representative and prosperous China But they left 10 days later wearing clothes still stained with the blood of their friends and with the images of the injured and dead still fresh in their minds In the quarter-century since seeing the "dark side of humanity" in Lams words they have actively fought against a growing amnesia surrounding the massacre at Tiananmen instigated by a Chinese Communist Party desperate to erase from the history the hundreds possibly thousands of dead and wounded "Every year I have to remind myself that I have a job to do" Lee tells TIME "I was rescued by the people of Tiananmen Square and they have an expectation of me" ‘If We Don’t Cry Out Who Will’ In the spring of 1989 thousands of students were taking to the streets each day calling for government action on reforms that had been promised since the country had begun opening up in the late 1970s but which had not been delivered For a heady moment it looked like the communist state might be forced to concede and onlookers in the then British colony of Hong Kong took notice The Hong Kong Federation of Students (HKFS) was one of the first groups to assist For weeks the group hosted fundraisers and collected donations The group also helped organize Hong Kongs largest protest in support of the Tiananmen movement drawing between 600000 and a million people onto the streets in late May "We all wanted to do something for the movement" Chan tells TIME In 1989 he was No 2 at the HKFS The group had been sending small delegations to Beijing to gather information on the ground "If we couldnt be at the very heart of the protests each day we hoped to provide some kind of back-end support" On May 25 1989 Chan; Lam who was then aged 20; and Lee 26 boarded a plane to Beijing with 20 other students in tow Divided among them were 300 tents and nearly a million dollars in cash donations a staggering sum that demonstrated just how desperate Hong Kongers were to show support Their plan was to split into two groups: the first would distribute supplies to the tens of thousands of students in Tiananmen Square The second would consult with student leaders in the square and help share information as the movement continued to grow "People were disappointed in the government They thought If we dont cry out who will" says Lam "It was the most beautiful message" The protests had begun April 15 after the death of Hu Yaobang a reformer within the Communist Party who favored economic overhaul and political liberalization These positions earned him praise from the countrys youth and his unexpected death drew thousands of students and intellectuals to the streets in a gesture of mourning that was at the same time a demonstration of reformist fervor On April 26 however an editorial condemning the protesters appeared in the state-run Peoples Daily In the piece the government alleged that the movement was “a planned conspiracy … to fundamentally negate the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party and to negate the socialist system" But casting the students as enemies of the people only raised the stakes "If the students were going to be judged as members of these so-called mobs" Lee says "there was no way they could return to their normal lives" As seasoned NPR reporter Louisa Lim writes in her book The Peoples Republic of Amnesia the weeks of student protests were "a Rubicon that once crossed transformed [students] lives forever The preordained career paths that ordinarily would have been theirs the government posting the academic career … were gone" In May many of the students pledged a hunger strike unless granted a meeting with government officials With temperatures exceeding 30C (86F) thousands suffered dehydration and exhaustion drawing more than 1 million citizens to the square in support on May 19 "The people of Beijing really felt united" Lam recalls "Preschool children officials from government offices grandparents even members of the Communist party They were so moved by the students message At that point we couldnt imagine the government would attack its own people" Kenneth Lam (left) Liane Lee (right) and another activist (name unknown) pose in front of the Monument to the People’s Heroes in Tiananmen Square Beijing in April 1989 Jonathan Chan On May 20 as the government declared martial law mobilizing seven army battalions to converge on the square groups of laobaixing (the Chinese term for commoners) formed "dare-to-die squads" devoted to obstructing military trucks tanks and the troops themselves Soon workers groups and picketers joined in citing frustration with the laggard speed of government reforms rampant government corruption and ever-stricter limits on press freedom A US embassy communiqué sent to the State Department on June 3 noted a prescient conversation overheard on the streets of the capital: "One should not be surprised at the nights events since throughout Chinese history whenever rulers have no solution for problems which they themselves have created they do very foolish things" ‘Tell the World What Happened Tonight’ Just before 9 pm on June 3 1989 Lee Lam and Chan took the elevator down to the lobby of the Beijing Hotel There a small gathering of journalists warned them of conditions in the square telling them it was too dangerous to leave the building The three hurried back up to their rooms burning sensitive records in the room’s tin trash can and smashing the fax machine which they had used to send reports home by picking it up and dropping it repeatedly After dividing up the rest of the donations storing the cash securely in their pockets and backpacks they placed a call from a hotel phone to the HKFS headquarters Friends and colleagues who had been listening to reports told them to stay in their rooms Lee unswayed called her pastor in Hong Kong She told him where she was and that she was planning to join the students in the square "Please say a prayer for me" she said before hanging up On the 15-minute walk from their hotel to Tiananmen Square little was said Rumors about military movements had bubbled up all day and protesters were monitoring army units approaching from the outskirts of town Chan Lee and Lam set off for the National Museum of China on the east side of the square Standing arm in arm they joined about 50 other students and workers waiting nervously as soldiers massed on the steps of the building To the soldiers protesters sang The Internationale an anthem of the socialist and leftist party as well as the Chinese Communist Party’s Lee remembers the surreal scene especially the sight of a young boy reading a book in the glow of the streetlights "Dont worry they wont hurt us" he said “We just have to stay calm and peaceful Who on earth would shoot us" Then Lee heard gunfire She and Chan recalled hearing a shaky male voice come over a loud-hailer: "Im holding in my hand the bloodstained shirt of my classmate” someone was saying above the din “They are starting to kill us What are we going to do now" With increasing frequency the injured and the dead appeared carried towards the makeshift aid station run by the Beijing United Medical College Around 11:30 pm," Chan, Bauchi.

download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsWritten by Dipti Nagpaul D’souza | Published: October 23 2016 1:00 am The colour prejudice has long existed in Indian society and over the years darker-skinned actors have learned to deal with it Top News At the Oscars earlier this year Priyanka Chopra created quite a sensation In her white Zuhair Murad corset dress she dazzled viewers in the West and the foreign press with her “international look” Back home the murmur of appreciation revolved around something else “It was the first time perhaps she wore make-up closer to her skin tone” points out a Bollywood make-up artist who did not wish to be named While this artist hopes that Chopra’s act of owning her complexion — more tawny than fawn — has inspired other actors obsessed with fairness it has done little to change the perception of the average Indian towards skin colour Late last month actor Tannishtha Chatterjee walked out of a television show after being referred to as kaali-kalooti repeatedly “In India of 2016 I still have to be apologetic about my skin tone What is this white-skin hangover Where does all our pride as a nation go away when it comes to the acceptance that most of us have a darker skin tone” wrote Chatterjee in a Facebook post after the incident But none of this is new and certainly not in the film industry The colour prejudice has long existed in Indian society and over the years darker-skinned actors have learned to deal with it Rekha before she was acknowledged as a star was subjected to constant humiliation about her skin tone writes Yasser Usman in the recently-released biography Rekha: The Untold Story In a 1994 interview mentioned in the book Rekha talked about the time she was cast opposite Navin Nischol in Sawan Bhadon (1969) “I was standing for an hour while someone body-painted me from head to toe Because in those days heroines were required to be fair In the north they have this fairness hang-up They painted all the junior artists white in all of D Ramanaidu films” she said It would seem that not much has changed; then and now a dark-skinned actor’s best friend is their make-up artist Mehera Kolah who has worked in Bollywood for well over a decade says that until the 1990s fairness was one of the requirements for being a lead actor “A lot of the girls with darker skin tones would rely on make-up to cover up their skin tone On screen they all wore the pancake look” she says Earlier lack of products for the Indian skin tone was also an issue “Quality products had to be imported and they were made for the West to suit white skin” explains Kolah Indian skin has a yellow undertone as opposed to Caucasians whose skin have a pink one The tide began to turn just slightly after a number of actresses came from the modelling world “Slowly the darker skin tone became more acceptable” says Divya Chablani a make-up artist who has worked with Alia Bhatt and Bipasha Basu According to make-up artist Sandhya Shekhar today a number of new-age actors from Chatterjee to Poorna Jagannathan and even Lisa Haydon embrace their skin tone “But the obsession still exists for some” she says Shekhar recounts an incident where a young actor who made her debut last year kept asking her if she looked “dark” “And she is already fair” she says Elton Fernandez who works with Sonam Kapoor Alia Bhatt Nimrat Kaur and Parineeti Chopra among others blames the industry for not standing up for the ethnicity of its people “Of course there is pressure on actors to appear fairer Why else are most commercially successful actors fair Why has Nandita Das only dominated indie cinema or why does Bipasha Basu try to look fairer than she is” quips Fernandez He refuses to work with actors who want him to change their skin tone to make it lighter “The feedback from their managers is that I made them look ‘dark’” Rumour has it that there are a number of Bollywood actresses who seem to have become lighter from their “dark-complexioned” days The difference is noticeable in actors such as Shilpa Shetty and Kajol who are often believed to have resorted to “skin-lightening” treatments over the years But Kolah says that does not necessarily imply that the change is intentional “Skin tone does change over years And these actors have been away from public life for many years now They don’t regularly shoot in harsh environments under the sun or in strong lighting anymore Skin care with quality products aids that too” she says Mehak Oberoi who has been working with Kajol since the past year seconds Kolah “I don’t deny that actors resort to skin lightening treatments such as melanin shots but Kajol’s skin tone is already light In fact I have to give her a warmer skin tone so she doesn’t look washed out under the lights” she says Kolah adds that the same applies for actors such as Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor “Also actors these days know that an olive or a bronze tone looks way sexier” she says The lighting during a shoot say make-up artists can make or break an actor’s look Shekhar says that today thanks to cutting- edge technology the camera catches the minutest details especially if the make-up is not done correctly “As for fairness you can at best play with a skin tone by two shades — go darker or lighter And if it is done well the lighting does the rest” she says Some actors do use this technique to appear fairer on screen says the first make-up artist we spoke to “For these actors you have to apply make-up on not just their face but entire body to even out the skin tone which can be quite a tedious process” she says The names that crop up are Kriti Sanon and Chopra In fact the latter appeared in a series of ads by a cosmetics brand for one of their “skin lightening” products The commercials came under fire as feminists and activists criticised it for equating “fair” with “beautiful” A campaign titled “Dark is Beautiful” was launched to generate awareness regarding the bias that exists so openly in the society; Nandita Das came out in its support speaking about the racism that is rampant in the film industry She spoke about how she was often described as “dusky yet beautiful” and her complexion decided the nature of roles she was offered But does the onus only fall on the women to have a lighter skin tone Most make-up artists say that male actors are more insecure about their appearance But rarely is complexion a matter of concern — it’s the hair that they obsess over One artist points out that this is possibly because most of the A-list actors are already fair-skinned with the exception of Shah Rukh Khan whose complexion also seems to have undergone a significant change And much like their female counterparts the darker ones hardly cross over from parallel to commercial cinema as leads In recent times Manoj Bajpayee Irrfan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are the only examples Das also blames actors both male and female who endorse cosmetic products “So many actors endorse fairness creams or products that help ‘lighten’ the skin They may not be asking their make-up artists to make them look fair on screen but they do propagate the idea that ‘fair is lovely’” rues Das She’s right — in the recent past only Kangana Ranaut and Anushka Sharma have taken a stand against these products The bias according to Fernandez is further perpetuated by perceptions about light skin and eyes being equated with an “elfin” look while sinister implies a shade darker But who said the film industry was ever
