Mumbai, May 23 (IANS) Ace choreographer-dancer Terence Lewis feels the worst part about the lockdown is being single. Indeed, social distancing has taught the value of physical intimacy.
"The worst part about this lockdown is being single. I have realised the importance of physical intimacy and miss holding hands and stealing kisses every now and then," said Lewis, about about how he misses being in a relationship.
Amid the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown, Terence says the only thing that has kept him going is trying to stay surrounded with positivity. He keeps himself busy with work.
"I have worked more in the last two months than I ever have in the past two years," he said.
Terence opens up about his lockdown period in a conversation with Kusha Kapila in an episode of "Go Fun Yourself", which streams on Voot.
Earlier in an interview, the choreographer said his life in lockdown is pretty busy.
"Days are busy with lots of shoots, interviews and even online appearances and judging! With all the technology available today we are constantly active online. My institute is conducting classes online, with a big dance camp (May 18-23). I am busy with planning and promotions. And like everyone else -- I have to cook and clean my house. I do make it a point to fit in some time for yoga and meditation as well, it's so important for my well-being," Lewis, who has judged many dance reality TV shows, told IANSlife.
New Delhi, May 29 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear a cross-appeal filed by Cyrus Mistry, seeking more relief than granted by the NCLAT verdict in December 2019.
The apex court issued notice to Tata Sons Pvt Ltd (TSPL) and others, and tagged the cross-appeals with the appeals filed by Tata Sons, Ratan Tata and others challenging the NCLAT verdict, which reinstated Mistry as the Executive Director of Tata Sons. Mistry and his firm sought removal of anomalies in the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) verdict to get representation on the TSPL board.
A bench of Justices A.S Bopanna and Hrishikesh Roy, which took up the matter through video conferencing, said: "Issue notice. Tag with Civil Appeal Nos... And connected matters, if any. In the meantime, pleadings be completed by the parties within a period of four weeks from today. List the matter(s) thereafter."
In January, the apex court had stayed the NCLAT order.
Through the cross-appeal, Mistry is seeking representation on the board in proportion to the 18.37 per cent stake held by his family. The cross-appeal argued that it was incumbent on the NCLAT to have granted proportionate representation that would have ensured that the interests of the SP Group are protected in future.
In the petition, Mistry has described the group's relationship with Tatas as a quasi-partnership relationship of a vintage of over 60 years, holding 18.37 per cent in the equity share capital of Tata Sons and whose stake is now worth over Rs 1.5 Lakh crore.
In January, the apex court had observed, "You (Cyrus) have been out of the saddle for a long time...how does it hurt you today." Tatas were represented through senior advocates A.M. Singhvi, Harish Salve, Mukul Rohatgi and Mohan Parasaran.
A heated argument broke out on the court's remark on the stay of the tribunal judgement. Senior advocate C.A. Sundaram, representing the company Cyrus Investment Pvt Ltd, contended instead of staying the tribunal judgement, the court could order status quo; and a notice could be issued within two weeks to file a reply.
Mistry's side had also wanted to place a note apparently on an interim arrangement, but it was not accepted by the court.
Senior advocate N.K. Kaul represented Mistry and senior advocate Shyam Divan represented the shareholders on Mistry's side. Mistry's side also said that they have been sidelined completely.
Sundaram contended before the bench he was not pressing on relief in connection with the reinstatement, instead he was against the wrong process adopted to remove Mistry.
