Shanti Shanti Shanti

Shanti Shanti Shanti is a 1998 Kannada language romantic comedy Drama film directed by Srinivas. The film starred Abbas, Prakash Raj, Prema and Satish Shah in leading roles. During production, the film became known for its series of innovative ideas for the Kannada film industry, by becoming the first film to have a website and a six-track DTS sound; the film, which featured cinematography from P. C. Sriram, released on 20 November 1998. After the success of Madhavan's Alaipayuthey, the film was dubbed into the Tamil language as Relax to cash in on his newfound following. There is Murthy, the rich but frugal papa, his two college-going kids and Shanti. Given papa's ways, the two kids feel a bit shackled, yearn for the good life. Matters come to a head when Siddhartha wants to play the guitar at a college function, Shanti wants to take part in the fashion parade—both need money and, of course, papa isn't in the mood to indulge such extravagance. Enter Raju. A foundling brought up by Sumitra, who ekes out a living running an idli stall, Raju is a diehard Rajnikanth fan, working in a garage to help make both ends meet.

Trouble begins when Raju loses his job, has a drink or three to ease the angst, finds himself standing outside Siddhartha-Shanti's home, gaping from outside at what he imagines is the rich life within. At this point, the family car rams into him. Raju is carted inside the home by papa's servants—with a foreign delegation due any minute, the last thing he needs is embarrassment outside his gates. Raju is tucked up in bed. Not that there is anything wrong with him, but he figures he might as well play possum and enjoy as much of the'rich' life as he can get; the carefree lad makes friends with Sidharth and Shanti, listens to their vows, promises to help them out. The threesome set off in papa's precious vintage car—and the movie from there on turns into a caper, revolving around the events of one frenetic day. Raju and Shanti become romantic, Siddhartha pairs up with Suji, a baddie comes into the equation, a kidnapping goes wrong as Raju is mistaken for Siddhartha. How the foursome get out of the mess is what the rest of the movie is all about.

Abbas as Raju Madhavan as Siddhartha Prakash Raj as Ganga Prasad Satish Shah as Anantha Murthy Prema as Suzy Sumithra as Raju's aunt Sudha Belavadi as Bank Manager Avni as Shanthi The director of the film, T. B. Srinivas, an estwhile assistant director to Mani Ratnam, collaborated with former state cricketer Sanjay Desai, a distributor and theatre-owner, to produce a film on the youngsters of Bangalore and the idea soon started the film. Srinivas claimed he was inspired by two incidents — the kidnapping of a rich businessman by young thugs from Uttar Pradesh who were attracted by Bangalore's reputation as a fast-growing city with rich men and relaxed cops and the case of four city girls running away for a week with a man who promised to help them fulfill their ambitions — in order to write the story; the film became the first Kannada film for prominent cinematographer P. C. Sreeram whilst noted; the film was notable for becoming the first Kannada language film to have a website for the film.

The move happened on the initiative of the director, T. B. Srinivas, although the practice failed to set a trend in the industry; the Music Was Composed By Sandeep Chowta. Kannada All lyrics are written by K. Kalyan. Tamil All lyrics are written by Vaali. Upon release, the film became a financial failure for the producers. However, after the success of Mani Ratnam's Alaipayuthey in which this film's supporting actor Madhavan, played the lead role, producers opted to dub the film into Tamil as Relax; the Tamil version featured songs from Alaipayuthey in Madhavan's scenes. Both lead actors threatened legal action, with Madhavan unhappy that a film in which he portrayed a supporting role would hamper his career in Tamil films, whilst Abbas was unhappy that the promoters were ignoring him, he threatened action claiming that the producers owed him money.

Nottawa, Texas

Nottawa is a ghost town in northeast Wharton County, in the U. S. state of Texas. The former community was situated in a rice-growing area midway between East Bernard and Lissie at the junction of U. S. Route 90 Alternate and Farm to Market Road 1164. There was a gas compressor station on the site in 2016; the site of Nottawa is located at the intersection of US 90A and FM 1164. East Bernard is 4.8 miles to the east. US 90A is south of and parallel with the Union Pacific Railroad. There are a few homes on County Road 270. Rice fields dominate the area, bracketed by Middle Bernard Creek on the east and West Bernard Creek on the west; the area was served by the Buffalo Bayou and Colorado Railway since 1859, when the land was used as free range for cattle. Serious settlement did not begin until 1878; some English and Welsh were enticed by the New Philadelphia project, which settled what became Lissie. After the first wave of settlement fizzled out, a second wave was begun by promoter John Linderholm of the South Texas Colonization Company who bought 60,000 acres locally.

Numbers of farmers from the midwest arrived but were disappointed that their familiar crops did poorly. Meanwhile, Nottawa had one general store; the 1898 discovery that the area was suited to rice production saved the situation. Soon, Wharton County was a major rice exporter. In 1904 a post office opened in Nottawa with Frank C. Boyden as postmaster. By 1914 the community had the Darby and Reed General Store. Three years the Nottawa Common School No. 37 opened to children in grades one through six. Though the 1920 census reported only 25 residents, the 1926 county poll-tax register named 84 white and two black voters in Nottawa; the 1927 county poll-tax register listed 46 white and two black voters. The list included Anglo surnames as well as Eastern European surnames. In 1945 the school merged with the East Bernard schools; the post office closed in 1930. With the advent of better highways, the inhabitants were able to travel to East Bernard to go shopping or to church; this resulted in the closing of the store in the late 1940s.

The Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company opened a booster plant nearby in 1944 and several homes and a community center were built for its employees. Though the plant still operated, the homes were moved or sold in the 1970s. In the late 1970s, Occidental Petroleum set up a research farm on FM 1164 for the purpose of testing new varieties of rice and soybeans for Asian farmers; the research center closed in 1991 and the community of Nottawa ceased to exist.
