Interview with Misty Copeland

"Hey everyone it's currently this show might sound a bit different today because the scam is still working from home for the time being due to cove nineteen. Today Misty Copeland joins me and skin from the couch she the most famous ballet dancer in the world she made history when she became the first black female principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre. She has also a bestselling author philanthropist and advocate her new children's book. Bun heads comes out this September mystique. Thank you so much for being here. I am so excited. To, be talking to you welcome to skin from the couch. Thank you so much. I'm really excited to. So I was kicked out of ballet at age four. So naturally made sense that I. Did this interview with you very excited for a cer- bond over all things ballet. So we're going to start how I like to start all interviews with just skim your resume. I started bollywood thirteen years old. It was not something that I had thought possible or knew anything about a my stumbled into it was discovered at my boys and Girls Club, the local community center across the street from public. School in San Pedro California, it was there that my valley teacher taught me my first class on a basketball court and she told me I was a prodigy after an hour of working with her she ended up inviting me to train with her in her studio on full scholarship and I ended up moving. In with her and her family to be able to train lean tensely for the next three years I trained for another year and a half at a different studio. By the time, I was seventeen about four years of training. I was living in New York City dancing professionally for American Ballet Theatre I went on to dance as a quarter ballet member for seven years I was the only black woman in American ballet theatre for the first decade of my career I then went on to become the third black female soloist in their history. In in two thousand, fifteen I became the first ever black principal Ballerina. Ballet, theater now, in their eighty year history found a lot of incredible opportunities along the way amazing opportunities for endorsement deals things that you don't typically see ballet dancer getting the opportunity to do estee lauder in Saco in. Getting the chance to perform with Prince and Taylor. Swift. I've had a very diverse career adding author to it. Extremely excited that I have the opportunity to. Children's books along with other genres but I'm really excited about this upcoming book on heads. I just got the book and it's fantastic. So I'm very excited to give it to people as gifts. Obviously you've lived in the public eye now for many years and you have a lot of fans especially, it's Kim H. Q.. What is something that your fans don't know about you something we can. Google. Recipe Ah. So this is proof of this. I'm I'm probably one of the clumsy as people we recently moved into. Will me my husband bought a home and amazing designer newly renovated everything and yesterday I was enjoying my Sunday with spicy crab kind of jump Eliah and I tripped over the carpet in spilled the whole thing on our Blue Velvet Sofa and how did you have an emergency let cleaner come in and clean like deep clean. The entire thing I am very surprised you. I would. Never Clumsy. How can you be a clumsy Ballerina I think there's something that happens when you're not on stage you're not in the studio where you're so focused. So much of the time on I mean naturally I'm coordinated but I'm there's just so much focus on my body that when I'm not having to do it I feel like I just completely let go I. Think the title of Your next book should be the Clumsy Ballerina just putting that out there. Yes. Next Children's book. I WanNa talk about your childhood. This career podcast, we talked to you so many amazing female leaders at the top of their respective names and obviously so much who each of us are because of how we grew up and the mark that are our parents family structure leave on us, and that informs how we can go out into the world top. Tell us a little bit just about your childhood and what it was like growing up. Yeah I mean absolutely shaped informed how I saw the world and approached everything that I did I was born in Kansas City Missouri, which a lot of people don't really know that I was two years old when my mom left my father and took her four kids on a bus. We drove from Kansas City Missouri to southern California where that was kind of the start of my life That's pretty much in my memory. All I remember is California growing up we moved a lot my mother married two more times had to march children my. Life which is constantly in motion and it was constant. There just wasn't a lot of security and so I think that it made me into the extremely introverted girl that I was I was embarrassed about the way that we lived We didn't have a home a struggled to put food on the table. I'm mother ultimately ended up raising six children on her own, and there was just a lot of hiding things. I wanted in no way to stand out which is pretty crazy. I ended up in a field where I'm out there exposed in performing for. So many but but it was on my terms and so when I could, when I could be a part of something where I could share my voice and my experiences without speaking, it was exactly like what the doctor ordered. It was just what I what I needed as a young person in I didn't have arts in my life until I was thirteen and so it was really difficult for me to survive by the time I started dancing. We were living in a motel just constantly moving from different places whatever we could afford I think that had. I not experienced. You know just no stability a lot of abuse There were so many things that I just felt like I learned to be a survivor and I was just constantly in survival mode. So stepping into the world of ballet, it was like peace and balance and security and consistency, and it was the opposite of what my world was in. So I think that's one of the reasons I was so drawn to it as well as you know I, think a lot of people look at the ballet world and they think you know it's Mean, it is difficult to thrive and to be successful in. All the hardships I felt like if I can get through all I have in my thirteen years with the life I've been living I can get through anything so I felt like I was so prepared not only as a young person to be in in the ballet world, but also as a black woman that was probably the one thing that I really felt secure in my identity was the fact that I mother raised me with the understanding that as soon as I leave the house every morning I'm a black girl in that so I'm going to be viewed and treated in. So there was no a lack of understanding in that area. Of My identity and so I think that really served me well when I entered the very white valet worlds.

"Everyone here. Cal Tar. The author of American Premiere Pie, as well as a him Sir. Thank you. For joining us today. Thank you so much for having me. So how has it been with? With the pandemic like are you getting any writing done or has it just in chaos for you? It's yeah. It's pretty much been chaos I I I have three small kids at home. So as soon as virtual learning started, I pretty much had to stop writing for a bit. I used to write at like ten o'clock after they would sleep before the pandemic but it was my new year's resolution to not do that and to sleep better. But I'm back to staying up till one am except I'm just like staring at tiktok videos and I'm not doing anything productive because I don't know that's my stress relief right now though everyone's gotTa Cope Right. Totally get to staying up watching just whatever yeah. Today I guess before we get into our questions can you let listeners know? What the book is about. Yeah. So American as Veneer Pie is the story of Laker who is the only Indian American in her small town in Michigan and Lak- feels like she has two versions of herself. There's home Laker who loves watching Bollywood Movies and eating Indian. Food. And School AK- pins her hair over her birthmark and avoids confrontation at all costs especially when someone tease her for her culture. When a racist incident rocks lead co small town she realizes she must make a choice whether to continue to remain silent or find her voice before it's too late. So the book takes place in the Midwest and as I understand it, you also grew up in the Midwest What was your upbringing like? Yes. So it was very similar to lay Kaz I grew up in a small town in Michigan and. The only indian-american or the kid in in town but there are just a handful of us. It wasn't a very diverse town You know we had a rock thrown through our window Someone wrote put a comb in that rat's nest and permanent marker on my locker and high school. There were plenty of incidents of micro aggressions and other ing and you know very obvious racism when I was growing up. So I put a lot of that into Lak- story as well. And how did you get into writing was writing something that you've always done as a kid or was that something that? Came later in your life yeah. It was when I was in third grade, our teacher had us all right these little stories and he bound them as hardcover books and I thought it was so cool to see my name on the cover I decided right then and there that I was going to grow up and be an author somewhere around middle school that dream changed to wanting to become a bollywood screenwriter. So after college I started working as a Bollywood screenwriter would travel back and forth between Mumbai and look. And Michigan and I did that for well over a decade before before my first book, him so was published. So as a screenwriter, did you use a beat sheet for writing by chance? I do so I definitely right all my novels out with a beat cheat first, and then I outlined them I, I write my novels. right my screenplays when I'm prepping them out. So there's a lot of planning a lot of outlining use a three act structure and then I start writing the book. Do you actually follow your cheat. I do. I. So I learned screenwriting at the University of Michigan from Jim Bernstein and he is a screenwriter as well as they. Instructor there, and he sort of you know drilled into us that its structure structure structure. So I spent a long time working on the structure before I actually go to the book and so then that structure pretty much stays the same. Yeah. I was really curious about that because I studied screenwriting in college and Again, it's all about structure. It's all about having your beats there yet but a lot but a lot of the times it depended on the assignment for me I will have their there were cases where I had every single scene like outlined, and then there were scripts where I was like I have the beats but I'm probably not GonNa follow it at all. Writing is unpredictable it yeah. But that's really cool that you actually follow your beats than you have such tight structure for your books because novel writing it's it's a massive project you don't have like. 'cause like scripts are like ninety, two, hundred, ten pages, and you know there are very strict rules to to adhere to write a novel writing. It's just. It's free game. Yeah and much longer like when I first started writing books my editor on a him. So as like you know, you have to pause and take a second to describe what people are wearing and what the scenery looks like. You know because from a screenwriting background, you don't do that because there is a costume designer and there's a set decorator and there are other people to take care of all those details. So it took a bit of retraining to get get. into novel writing but I I do definitely depend heavily on the screen writing background

TikTok Tackles India App Ban, Vowing It's No Tool for Beijing

"Tensions have spiked between the world's two most populous nations. That would be China and India. The two countries share a border that extends for more than 2000 miles, and it was along that border that violence broke out. Last month, 20 Indian troops were killed. Now India has banned dozens of Chinese APS, including the social video APP. TIC tac. India has been tic Tac's biggest foreign market. NPR's Lauren Frayer has been talking with some of the Indians obsessed with it. When the Corona virus hit India, Sumit Jane was forced to shut the clothing shop he runs in his hometown in western India. Under lock down. He was bored and worried. Looking long thought intelligent. That damned ignominy. Tic tac is how I stayed. Sane says I posted videos every day, Good Tic Tac clip Jane lip synchs lyrics about the Corona virus. To the tune of a popular Bollywood song. Jane is a skinny 28 year old with a curly mop of hair, gold earrings and nearly four million followers on Tic Tac social video APP has made him famous. He starred in a music video and even got offers to be on TV that Ah, licking a musical gave a small town in hands like me used to have to move to the big city to get noticed, he says. Tic Tac lets us do that from home. Up to 1/3 of TIC Tac users are believed to be in India. They're the biggest group outside China. Some Indians have even monetized it selling English lessons on tick talk, for example. But this week, the Indian government banned Tic Tac, along with 58 other Chinese made APS amid tensions with Beijing. We the people of India, standing behind the government have the ability to hit China where it hurts. India's nationalist TV anchors applauded the move. Many Indians are outraged over China's killing last month of Indian troops. Some are calling for a boycott of all Chinese goods. The government is trying to tap into the national sentiment in sweeping India right now. Akil Berry with the think tank Eurasia Group, says the Indian government is concerned about data privacy on Chinese APS. It also wants Indians to develop Indian APS rather than using Chinese ones. But India's own tech start ups get a lot of Chinese investment, Barry says. When you take a look at India's unicorns startups that a valued at over $1 billion about 18 off the 30 of them have Chinese investment. So if Beijing retaliates and pulls Chinese investment That could hurt India even more, he says. Tic Tac says it's following Indian privacy laws and is asking the Indian government to reconsider. Meanwhile, in a small town in northern India, housewife Anita Meena has been posting videos to tic tac of herself doing folk dances and have gone viral. She gets recognized when she goes to her local market, she says. Tick. Tuck is banned. Mina says she'll focus on YouTube Instead, it's unclear how many of India's roughly 200 million TIC tac users will do the same if Lauren Frayer NPR

Why It Matters

WhatsApp Pay to Launch in India

"India a potentially decisive moment in digital freedom is going down right now. India's ruling party has put forward new rules that would allow it to trace and censor private communication. Standing in. Its way is what's up. An American made encrypted Messaging Platform. That's used by hundreds of millions of Indians and the outcome could have ripple effects across the globe. I'm Gabrielle Sierra. And this is why it matters today. India's government versus what's up and the looming threat of digital authoritarianism. India is the world's largest democracy if you can imagine nine hundred. Million PEOPLE VOTED. Alas national election last year out of a population of one point. Three billion people. It's just it's it's a massive exercise election. Yeah it's huge it's populace and that's what also makes it really fun and exciting to be on the ground. You certainly feel the energy especially in the city like Mumbai. Politicians routinely insult each other on the campaign trail criminals of every flavor. Run for office and win so do Bollywood movie. Stars Cricket Stars it just never ends has always been a fairly Jackie democracy. We talk a lot. We argue a lot that our culture. Okay so help me understand why. What's APP is such a big deal in India? How many people are actually using it? They're awfully four hundred million people. It is indeed this is Chinmaya ruined. She's a resident fellow at Yale. University and the founder of a research center at National Law University Delhi. She's also a leading legal expert on the intersection between freedom of speech and technology. And so why WHATSAPP wine? Not you know instagram or snapchat. The elite platforms are used by everyone. But what's happened? The one that really appeals to people if you have a phone that's not too fancy. If you don't speak English you don't read or you don't have access to inexpensive data connection. You can still use. What's APP so it started with? Hey you don't have to spend one rupee or two rupees per tax. You just save them up and then they send whenever you're in Wifi and saw a lot of people with not lot of money. Which is many many Indians decided that this works for them. And then what's up had these multimedia features which people started using it started liking and? I have mixed feelings about this because the good thing is that I get to talk to my grandma. And she finally has forgiven me for moving across cushy can look at my home and you know say things about my plants or whatever course but if you're sitting in an Indian airport and watching the number of people who do video calls subject you to their conversations mixed feelings what's up is really a messaging platform and that can be one messages like me sending a message to you. But it's also very commonly used in India for groups. I am do oil and I am a technology reporter for the New York Times based in Mumbai. India vindaloo also covers Indian economics and culture and has written extensively about free speech and misinformation under India's ruling party. We called him at his home in Mumbai on. What's up what's has become so embedded in life in India that people use it in their business transactions so you can order groceries from your corner grocery store over what's APP. I buy airline ticket from make trip. Which is one of the big online travel agencies? They send me a confirmation message on what's up with by e ticket details so for those of US based outside of India handling a basic transaction may require a few different platforms. You find out about a concert on instagram. Rsvp FOR IT ON FACEBOOK. Maybe share the notification on twitter buyer ticket on ticketmaster and received the confirmation on g mail but for Indians. What's APP is often the one stop shop for everything? In other words an application from Silicon Valley has become basic infrastructure for the second most populous nation honors. That's a pretty big deal and it helps. Illuminate why the government is pushing for greater control. What's up was founded in two thousand nine by two former employees of Yahoo? It's an American company. It was founded in Silicon Valley and they basically built a very simple messaging service became very popular. It caught the attention of Mark Zuckerberg the chief executive and founder of Facebook Zuckerberg beside it in two thousand fourteen to by what's APP and pay the still stock price of twenty two billion dollars for this message company so facebook is making a mobile push with steal the buy real time messaging service. What's APP? It's still a pretty incredible price to pay for a company that stress a few years old. It also makes tiny what's APP more valuable than some of the most established companies in the country including American Airlines Marriott hotels and Xerox and it came at a crucial moment for facebook when it really was trying to find ways to diversify its revenue base and also get in touch with more mobile users. I'm Seema mody global markets correspondent with CNBC business news and suddenly came this messaging platform. That was not only gaining prominence here in the US but around the world in fact I believe the average daily use a rate on WHATSAPP was much higher than Facebook Messenger. Facebook saw that and said this is such a strategic bet for us. Let's acquire it and find a way to really incorporated into our user base platform. But what's APP is free right. What's APP is free? And I think this is still a developing story to see how facebook is really trying to incorporate what's up into its business and you know will you one day see ads on what's that that's certainly been one of the big questions sucker. Berg was pressure in that. This technology of very simple messaging APP was going to become very popular today. Whatsapp has more than two billion users. Around the world it is by far the most popular messaging APP in the world and one of its biggest claims to fame. Is it emphasizes privacy. All messages on the service use. Something called end to end encryption. Okay so in most cases when you send an email or a text message it gets encrypted that means that the information inside is locked up in a code so that outsiders can't read it however the service providers that pass your message along can read it whether that's apple or G. Mail or facebook whoever they all have the keys to that code and that makes your message vulnerable enter end to end encryption with this technology none of the men have the keys. Only you and the person you're sending it to break the code. What's up can't read. Even if the government came knocking at the door of what's up what's up. What have nothing really to give up. And so your information is private and that makes it unique to other services messaging services like whether you're sending a text message or even facebook Messenger where that information does live somewhere. Yeah most other. Messaging Services in the world are not and encrypted and certainly none of the popular ones. But what's up has made it really easy. You don't think about corruption it just is encrypted Because so much of India's communication happens on WHATSAPP end to end. Encryption has made it very difficult for the government to investigate messages in the name of national security. People are not making phone calls anymore. They're not even walking over to their neighbor. Say This texting and where the speech there is harmful speech. It's not news that social media can bring out the worst in people the platforms. We use everyday are teeming with sexism. Racism misinformation and violent ideologies. It's the same. In India or social media has amplified problems that are a lot older than the internet rumors and lies spread like wildfire across the Internet including across chat and applications. Like WHATSAPP Many I. I'm used US India or live. Whatever comes in the woods his true the one that's really made the headlines is there was a lot of fishers. He'd speed circulating on what's APP so for example. The Muslim community is under quite a lot of pressure in India. Right now and it's really sad one of the ways in which they're discriminated against is that some upper caste. Hindus don't eat beef and so the rumors circulating on what's apple say things like X. has beef in his fridge are why is transporting COW CARCASS. And since it's already been sold to people as it stretched to their religion when a rumor like that reaches people that already feel threatened and feel like these people are out to get all the Hindus and they're trying to destroy religion by eating beef and Lynch mobs attacked them and their popularly called. What's APP lynchings? Early twenty eighteen. There was a wave of false messages. On whatsapp about child kidnappers prowling parts of India. Trying to steal people's children and this panicked a lot of people and mobs attacked strangers in various parts of India and killed them. Beat the Tied the mob hung them all kinds of terrible things. More than twenty people died in just the span of a few months because of these rumors and after these rumors started appearing the central government. When after what's happened said you need to find a way to trace these messages and stop these messages. And this set off a feud with what's out that has still not been resolved. The government says it doesn't WanNa read your messages. The government says they don't want to spy on the content of messages. They're not asking what's up to break the encryption of messages and show them what's in the messages but they are saying. Is You need to be able to trace back the pathway of a message. And you have to find a way to do that because if you have some message goes viral we WANNA find out who sent it and we'll see what happens. I mean what's up has said that to that would require significant changes to their service and they haven't said whether they'd be willing to make such changes to their

"You live without fear and I want the government and the society to take responsibility. It is not me who has to constantly thing that came. My battery has to be charged. Buses should be save. COMMITTALS should be safe. And I'm out because I don't want to live without fear. India is reckoning the rape problems according to the latest government figures about one hundred sexual assaults are reported each day but many more go unreported because of the social stigma attached to victims the fee issue remains front and center last week. A twenty three year old woman in the state of Uttar Pradesh was set on fire as she traveled to testify against the two accused of raping her. She died from her burns the next day in a separate incident four men accused of rape and murder of twenty seven. All veternarian was shot and killed by police in what many believe was an extrajudicial killing with demonstrations nations throughout the nation public outrage has reached fever pitch and India's women are demanding action. Hello I'm on night. Welcome to the heat. PODCAST in this episode. Assode we feature an interview from the broadcast with Bollywood actress. Richer Chad how. She's been speaking out on the frustrations faced by India's women as they struggle to be heard by law enforcement want the government and culture as a whole which are. Thanks so much for joining us. I thank you for horrific case in India. The most recent case that's being reported report about the woman who was raped and then birded full men were arrested And then the accused were killed by police. And there's been a lot of controversy over vis in India some according to justice others in India saying that it's a travesty of justice. What is your view? I tend to agree with the chief justice of obey. WHO said that? This cannot be the thought that we choose. There is a place but every institution democracy and the police cannot be performing foaming digital of the judiciary in a sense. That absolves the release of Dan Responsibility. Case like this when the woman's family I went to complain. They're addicted psalm. One station to another Omega distinction about which area Decisi this crime happened. Then end the fuss statement to come out the next day from an official said that widened the victim. I called the police. And why did she call the sister. And then after today's Yukio that the Florida keys mated on footage encountered doesn't also point to the fact that there's also a great deal of frustration in India over the way in which the justice system handles cases like this including the man which the police handle this tation trump. Both the police and from the judiciary which is why you see you this support for this quick dispensation of justice among people there was a section of people who said that this was the best thing that could've been down ice see like liberties the minute you ignore the rule of law in favour off fucking sentiment. You're bound to go wrong if we do not follow due process. It's going to be very dangerous. We have seen outrage on the streets of India over this most recent gang rape. You have said that the country is not safe for women. What needs to change? The first thing that needs to change OSCO lost is how we days the children that we have in our country. India is one of those countries where violence against the gun starts in the womb. We have have a high native funeral if you decide and from then on gloves charter schools and often bed. Instead of trade that they were listed assaulted GPD on the re three areas and so on and so forth bust. It comes to conditioning then. Hopefully people understand the importance of following the legal costs of things that needs to be greater greater amount of sex education. I did some readies new. That a shave is sexualize suggestion but it is addition and it is widely towards the theme. Year there's been a lot of coverage over these protests in India. There was one very anxious. Young Girl Oh who was at a recent protest. She was talking about her concerns. Let's listen to sell what you have to say suffering from this every scattered off after tonight often even after nine every every goal is like scared to go out and every parents are thinking that it's a it's a far for good. She's wearing charred. What does this? And it's not that that episode doing this that yours defendant. Debbie is only that yours restrung restrung words give us your sense of the mindset among women and girls in India blend. It isn't that women don't come forward to park art crimes like these to the gentleman sexual crimes is because it is a bobby accustomed victim shaming the often asked why lead was out to lake. What is she bedding? And it was kind of gas gas lighting. That can happen because the last report was about nine month old baby being raped by that were uncovered so I was going to question why that infant choice of clothing was no we have to look at this as an objective issue and we would be foolish to believe the men in India will be foolish to believe that if women get lived on the streets that it's not something that is going to affect them. You're in a recent movie. You played played a prosecutor. The movie was called section three seven five and as a prosecutor you were trying to get justice for a rape victim. How did that role and you? Apart in that movie we inform you about the ongoing problems of ripen into read like. I knew off the shelves before the phone if you're kind of raised in India. There's no way you'll really skip that reality on the road using public transport where you study who you hang out with. It's something you deal with on a daily basis so I don't I don't think that the film added to my knowledge needs substantial ray however it was a stop was over damped and it looked at the section Balkan sent in the Indian constitution attention reach after the horrific twenty briefcase which is populated call. That was a few amendments to that and the the definition of rape was broadened. It's not like the laws are not in place of me. Gap Doesn't exist is just that nothing seems to change Wjr that case that you talk about an India in twenty twelve there were laws that were passed in the aftermath of that case but those laws acted as any kind of deterrent. And I'm On models stand jail I believe they have what forward mercy petition won on his take on his lousy perdition back one was juvenile so nothing happened though. Who to root for the documentary about the same issue you in the key? Saudi claims that it was in fact. Okay actually this is. That was that you've talked about the need for change both was in government and in society in attitudes. That's the big challenge is an Italian accomplish that the government is not something that isolation should the government exists. Because we want these people into our cottage lead ruling power has the ruling regime has a high percentage of people have been either accused or convicted of gender gyns including a former union minister gone. MGM Brush and Emily Brown could lead singer. That is a says started who bulging my own and and there's another guy on this on on right now he's on his on island saw Saami so and I just want to get back to the judicial system again. The court system has been extremely slow to act act against alleged rapists according to one children's rights organization even if there are no abuse cases reported abroad after twenty sixteen it would take the Justice Justice System Twenty years to conclude pending trials again. Why is this not a priority for the state? The answer is our judiciary additionally so clogged up or cases at on finds of dime. I'm surprised you said that the backlog would only be twenty years.

"Auto and i became like the only brown kid in my school so all the sudden i'm just trying to blend in as much as i can if bollywood was something that i had to cut out so i can pick up another thing to relate to these other kids than i was going to do it so there was like six years where i didn't watch any bollywood films but instead i was like skating riding bikes watching like i dunno mission impossible in talking about that in school and then it took i think when i was in college i started hanging out with more indian or pakistani people and you know it just became the thing to do again and sean why did you lose interest in bollywood when you were younger so i grew up on these movies and there weren't a lot of other near in our pockets spiny kids in my school growing up so for me it was just something that i thought was lame i was embarrassed of it was just like something my parents made me watch but i remember like secretly really loving them and then i kind of separated myself from bollywood altogether and i would stay in college i became friends with other indian impacts vanni kids who really did love bollywood and that's how i sort of got back into it i mean it's kind of interesting that you both came back to bollywood in college when you both kind of reconnected with these cultures and seemed to be less worried about what being an other means or what people might think this is hardly a accessibility to these movies is also an issue i mean i remember some years ago if you want to watch bollywood you'd have to rent the vhs at a local speciality shop now you can watch it on netflix yes absolutely this is sean i mean when we were kids most of the movies that i saw were bootleg copies and a lot of times the copy would pretty much just be some uncle sitting in the theater recording the screen so just be.

"Is there any moment in a bollywood movie that just you know we all have our movie moments that really stay with you as a kid watching those movies for thirty dollars in the knowledge auditory him that just remain with you today yeah absolutely as a little kid growing up in suburban america where everyone was white in christian and very different from me i had never seen people that look like me on screen and so when we first got a vcr in nineteen eighty two it was really a life changing moment because when my parents popped in the first tape i saw people that looked like me on a tv screen and i didn't even speak the language at the time i learned hindi by watching bollywood movies and by reading the subtitles as a little kid and so this is really the way that i learned about my culture the way that i learned about where my parents came from the way that i learned about india and the storytelling in the music and the language and so for me it holds a very special place in my heart and i think that's the case for most second generation indian americans like myself who were born here regardless of where our parents came from an india what region they came from what religion they are what language they speak we are as generation we are all unified by bollywood movies because it's the way that we were connected to the motherland and if you've ever been to an indian american wedding here in the united states you know that is just a celebration of three days of bollywood dancing an indian food and that's because those two things really hold it to your place in our hearts.

"Chicago the guy would send the film canisters to our town harrisburg pennsylvania and i remember as a really young kid we would go to the greyhound bus station in harrisburg late at night and wait for a bus to pull up into the into the station and then out of the bottom of the bus would come these huge wooden film canisters that had been shipped from india and my dad would carry them back to the car and then one sunday a month my parents would get a local college auditorium that had been donated and a couple of indian families would get together and put this old film into a movie projector and watch a bollywood film and it was really a wonderful experience for them because these were the only images of home that they would be able to see for years at a time so let's talk about bollywood films obviously there's dancing and singing people just show up all of a sudden and there's route of dancers but you say nobody's actually singing it's all lips sinked and they used playback singers could you just talk about that that's right one of the things that's really surprising to folks here in america is that in bollywood films which are all musicals the actors are not actually singing themselves which is what we're used to when we think of musicals whether they're on broadway or the the hollywood musicals of the nineteen fifties in india because all the movies are musicals and because they produce some fifteen hundred musicals a year you it's very hard to find actors who can act and dance and sing to be a true triple threat enough actors at least two to populate all of these films so what they do is they pick actors to be in the movies and then the songs are recorded by what we call playback singers who are sometimes just as famous as the actors that they are professional singers who record the songs for the film and then the actors lip sing to them on screen while they're dancing to the musical numbers so you also say this little.
