Show Me Love (t.A.T.u. song)

"Show Me Love" is the English version of the song Ya Tvoya Ne Pervaya by Russian music duo t. A. T.u.. It was released as a promotional single for radio stations, taken from their first English-language studio album 200 km/h in the Wrong Lane, it was meant to be the third official single from 200 km/h in the Wrong Lane, after "All the Things She Said" and "Not Gonna Get Us", however Interscope Records cancelled it and released "How Soon Is Now?" instead. The radio promo was only released in Poland. According to t. A. T.u. Member Lena Katina, Ivan Shapovalov was inspired to create t. A. T.u. After the release of the 1998 Swedish film Show Me Love, centred on a romance between two schoolgirls; the album version of "Show Me Love" opens to Katina and Julia Volkova speaking in their native Russian, which translated means "Hello / Hello / Can you see the wind? / So what? / Just look out of the window / So what? / There was sun yesterday / So what? / Why are you always saying the same thing? / I am an answering machine".

The song begins, featuring a prominent synthesizer beat throughout the duration of the song, with lyrics regarding to events played down to seem like nuances. The chorus features repetition of the phrase "show me love"; the line "Played by fucking lunatics" at the end of the second verse has the word "fucking" censored on the album version, but not during live performances or on the 10th anniversary edition of the album. At the end of the song, the song has the lyrics "Mama, forgive me". In early leaked demos, the line is always shown on the group's single "30 Minutes", it is important to note that the line is not associated with "30 Minutes" although it is sometimes used in the music video of "30 Minutes". "Show Me Love" received polarized reviews from music critics. Allmusic had highlighted the song as an album standout, but had called the song "suggestive". Sputnikmusic gave it a mixed review, they said that the cheesy lyrics wasn't good enough as a highlight, but said it's worth "listening to".

However, Adriandenning.co.uk gave it a negative remark, saying that "Show Me Love" is "fucking awful" and compared it to horrible Eurovision songs saying it's "Semi-eurovision crap". Michael Orsborn from MusicOMH gave it a nice remark, along with the song "Not Gonna Get Us", saying "Big production values which have a definite whiff of the'80s steam through on'Not Gonna Get Us' and'Show Me Love'." Todd Burns from Stylus Magazine gave it a mixed review. He said he was unimpressed that the song was not a single as he said it sounds "wise, than the first two tracks" but he added "'Show Me Love', in particular, lacks the energy and dynamism of the previous two singles plodding along at its own pace." The music video was directed by Ivan Shapovalov and filmed in May 2003. The video shoot took place in Los Angeles, London and Tokyo. However, the music video was never released. Shapovalov was arrested during the shooting of the music video; this was said. After the incident, he was banned from filming near Big Ben in London, but did shoot at Tower Bridge.

Polish Promo CD single "Show Me Love" "Ya Tvoya Ne Pervaya" "All the Things She Said" Hong Kong singer Emme Wong covered the song in Cantonese in 2003. The song was released as the second single from Wong's talked about album, full of songs with sexual implication; the song was more explicit in context, but less of a commercial success compared to her first single, a cover of "Round Round" sung by the UK girl band Sugababes

Mission Mummy

Mission Mummy, is a 2016 Indian children and family drama film and directed by Ashish Kakkad and produced by Nigam Shah, Divyesh Mehta & Sugam Shah. It stars Raj Vazir, Satyam Sharma, Aashna Mehta & Saumya Shah in lead roles; this is the second film by Ashish Kakkad, after Better Half. Mission Mummy is produced under the banner of Virtual Entertainment, it is co-produced by Ashish Kakkad. The story of the film is based on a book by Dhiruben Patel; the screenplay and dialogues are written by Ashish Kakkad. The film celebrates the idea of "being Gujarati" and hence poet and lyricist Tushar Shukla was approached for a song portraying the love for the mother tongue. Aparna, a working woman, quits her job to become a full-time mother, she raises her three kids Vyom and Vismay, with much love and care, now that the kids are grownups, she is wondering if she should resume her career. Over the years, she sacrificed her career for her children, but the kids now start to visualize a new image of her on their own.

They demand their mother to be a trendy lady. When Aparna wants to resume her career, the kids intensify their demand to make mummy a modern woman, their definition of modern is simple: everything has to be "western" and not "Gujarati". Aparna tries to pacify them but peer pressure makes the kids more resolute in their demand for a modern mummy, they call it "mission mummy". The mission is implemented and everything changes in that family, forever; the film beautifully touches on the important issue that in "happy families" of Gujarati community, there is a "set trend" of growing gap between mother and kids. It is not just a schism between the generations, it is a gap between the culture within the house and the culture outside; the strength of this film is that it presents a serious issue in a vibrant manner.

Šutruk-Nakhunte was married to the daughter of a Kassite king named Meli-Šipak. Shutruk-Nahhunte is known by an inscription to have taken the Victory Stele of Naram-Sin, dated about one millennium early to circa 2250 BC, his inscription appears on the top right corner of the stele, on the depiction of a mountainous cone, was written in Elamite by Shutruk-Nahhunte himself: "I am Shutruk-Nahhunte, son of Hallutush-Inshushinak, beloved servant of the god Inshushinak, king of Anshan and Susa, who has enlarged the kingdom, who takes care of the lands of Elam, the lord of the land of Elam. When the god Inshushinak gave me the order, I defeated Sippar. I carried it off, bringing it to the land of Elam.

For Inshushinak, my god, I set it as an offering." Shutruk-Nakhunte gained a small public exposition in Ethan Canin's short story "The Palace Thief", its adaptation in the 2002 film The Emperor's Club, in which one of the key elements is a plaque describing the exploits of Shutruk-Nakhunte, described as a once famous egomaniacal conqueror unknown today. The quote from the film is, "'I am Shutruk Nahunte, King of Anšan and Susa, Sovereign of the land of Elam. By command of Inshushinak I destroyed Sippar, Took the Stele of Niran-Sin, brought it back to Elam, where I erected it as an offering to my god.' — Šutruk-Nahunte, 1158 B. C." D. T.
