Suchitra Sen

Suchitra Sen (Bengali: সুচিত্রা সেন) (Bengali pronunciation: [ʃuːtʃiːraː ʃeːn]  listen ) (born as Roma Dasgupta) ( listen ; 6 April 1931 – 17 January 2014) was an Indian film actress who worked in Bengali and Hindi cinema. The movies in which she was paired opposite Uttam Kumar became classics in the history of Bengali cinema.

Sen was the first Indian actress to receive an award at an international film festival when, at the 1963 Moscow International Film Festival, she won the Silver Prize for Best Actress for playing a disillusioned alcoholic in Saptapadi. In 1972, she was awarded the Padma Shri, one of the highest civilian awards in India. From 1979 on, she retreated from public life and shunned all forms of public contact; for this she is often compared to Greta Garbo. In 2005, she refused the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, the highest cinematic award in India, to stay out of the public eye. In 2012, she was conferred the West Bengal Government’s highest honour: Banga Bibhushan.

Suchitra Sen was born in Sen Bhanga Bari village of Belkuchi Upazila, now in Sirajgonj District, Greater Pabna in the present day Pabna District of Bangladesh, on 6 April 1931. Her father Late Karunamoy Dasgupta was the headmaster of the local school and her mother Late Indira Devi was a homemaker. She was their fifth child and third daughter. Ms Sen is a Grand Daughter of Famous Poet Sree Rajonikant Sen. She received her formal education in Pabna. Partition brought her family and her to West Bengal, where she married Dibanath Sen, son of wealthy industrialist Adinath Sen, in 1947, and had one daughter, Moon Moon Sen, who is a former actress. Her father-in-law, Adinath Sen, was supportive of her acting career in films after her marriage. Her industrialist husband invested a lot in her career initially and supported her in all possible ways.

Sen had made a successful entry into Bengali films in 1952, and then a less successful transition into the Hindi movie industry. According to persistent but unconfirmed reports in the Bengali press, her marriage was strained by her success in the film industry .

Suchitra Sen made her debut in films with Shesh Kothaay in 1952, but it was never released. The following year saw her act opposite Uttam Kumar in Sharey Chuattor, a film by Nirmal Dey. It was a box-office hit and is remembered for launching Uttam-Suchitra as a leading pair. They went on to become the icons for Bengali dramas for more than 20 years, becoming almost a genre unto themselves. She has acted in 30 of her 60 films with Uttam Kumar. She received a Best Actress Award nomination for the film Devdas (1955), which was her first Hindi movie. Her Bengali melodramas and romances, especially with Uttam Kumar, made her the most famous Bengali actress ever. Her pairing with Bengal’s King of Hearts Uttam Kumar created classic romantic hits (Agnipariksha, Harano Sur, Saptapadi, Pathey Holo Deri, Kamal Lata, Indrani, Sabar Upore, Suryatoran, Shaare Chuattor, Sadanander Mela, Jiban Trishna, Ekti Raat, Chaawa Paawa, Shapmochan, Bipasha, Naborag, Trijama, Rajlakshmi Srikanto, Har Mana Har, Alo Amar Alo, Ora Thakey Odhare, Grihaprabesh and others) that have enjoyed ageless popularity and are watched, loved and admired even to this day.

The skyrocketing popularity of this romantic pair created a benchmark that remains unchallenged to this day. No other romantic pair in Bengali cinema in the subsequent decades have been able to match up to the magic created by Suchitra Sen and Uttam Kumar.

It must be mentioned here that much of the duo’s popularity was contributed by the songs that showed them together. The team of Hemanta Kumar Mukhopadhyay, Sandhya Mukhopadhyay, Geeta Dutt was a very successful combination that brought melody and romance in the perfect tandem of melodrama that was portrayed in the Uttam Suchitra movies so effortlessly. Songs like Ei poth jodi na sesh hoye from Saptapadi, Tumi je amar from Harano Sur showcase their effortless chemistry with each other, immortalizing them in the hearts of their fans.

Her films ran through the 1960s and ’70s. She continued to act in films even after her husband died in 1970 in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, such as in the Hindi film Aandhi (1974). Aandhi was inspired by India’s Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Sen received a Filmfare Award nomination as Best Actress, while Sanjeev Kumar, who played the role of her husband, won the Filmfare as Best Actor.

One of her best known performances was in Deep Jwele Jaai (1959). She played in a character name Radha Mitra, a hospital nurse employed by a progressive psychiatrist, Pahadi Sanyal, who is expected to develop a personal relationship with male patients as part of their therapy. Sanyal diagnoses the hero, Basanta Choudhury, as having an unresolved Oedipal dilemma. He orders Radha to play the role though she is hesitant as in a similar case she had fallen in love with the patient. She finally agrees and bears up to Choudhury’s violence, impersonates his mother, sings his poetic compositions and in the process falls in love again. In the end, even as she brings about his cure, she suffers a nervous breakdown. The film is noted for its partly lit close-ups of Sen, which set the tone of the film. Asit Sen remade the film in Hindi as Khamoshi (1969) with Waheeda Rehman in the Suchitra Sen role.

Suchitra Sen’s other landmark film with Asit Sen was Uttar Falguni (1963). She plays the dual role of a courtesan, Pannabai, and her daughter Suparna, a lawyer. Critics note that she brought a great deal of poise, grace and dignity to the role of a fallen woman determined to see her daughter grow up in a good, clean environment.

Suchitra Sen’s international success came in 1963, when she won the best actress award at the Moscow International Film Festival for the movie Saat Paake Bandha, becoming the first Indian actress to receive an international film award.

There is a scene in Saat Paake Bandha where Suchitra Sen has to tear the vest that Soumitra is wearing. Later, at a party thrown to celebrate the film’s success, she did a repeat of the scene and tore Soumitra’s shirt, much to the amazement of those present. Something that no one but her, could have even imagined doing in that age!

A film critic summed up Suchitra Sen’s career and continuing legacy as „one half of one of Indian cinema’s most popular and abiding screen pairs, Suchitra Sen redefined stardom in a way that few actors have done, combining understated sensuality, feminine charm and emotive force and a no-nonsense gravitas to carve out a persona that has never been matched, let alone surpassed in Indian cinema“

Suchitra Sen refused Satyajit Ray’s offer due to a scheduling problem. As a result, Ray never made the film Devi Chaudhurani based on the novel written by Rishi Bankim Chandra Chattopadhya. She also refused Raj Kapoor’s offer for a film under the RK banner.

Sen continued to act after her husband’s death in 1970, but called it a day when Pronoy Pasha flopped, and retired from the screen in 1978 after a career of over 25 years to a life of quiet seclusion. She was to do a film project Nati Binodini, also starring Rajesh Khanna, but the film was shelved mid-way after shooting when she decided to quit acting.

She assiduously avoided the public gaze after her retirement and devoted her time to the Ramakrishna Mission.

Suchitra Sen was admitted to the hospital on 24 December 2013 and was diagnosed with a lung infection. She was reported to have been recovering well in the first week of January. She died at 8.25 am on 17 January 2014, due to a heart attack.

Suchitra Sen’s death was condoled by many leaders, including the President of India Dr. Pranab Mukherjee, the Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, the Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina, and B.J.P.’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. A gun salute was given before her cremation, upon the orders of Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal.

Respecting her fierce desire for complete privacy, her last rites were performed at Kolkata’s Kaioratola crematorium, barely five and half hours after she died, with her coffin reaching the crematorium in a flower decked hearse with dark-tinted windows. Despite being Bengal’s greatest star, referred to as „Mahanayika“, she had consciously chosen to step into oblivion and she remained an enigma till her last, although thousands of fans had converged at the crematorium to catch one last glimpse of their idol. Her entire medical treatment had also been done in seclusion and secrecy.

From 1953 to 1978, both in Bengali and Hindi, Suchitra Sen acted in 61 films.Among them 22 were blockbusters,13 were superhits,5 made profits above the average and the rest flopped.

Iris ser. Spuriae

Iris series Spuriae are a series of the genus Iris, in Iris subg. Limniris. They are sometimes commonly known as butterfly irises.

The series was first classified by Diels in Die Natürlichen Pflanzenfamilien (Edited by H. G. A. Engler and K. Prantl) in 1930. It was further expanded by Lawrence in Gentes Herb (written in dutch) in 1953.

All species in the series, have woody rhizomes and wiry looking roots. They have narrow upright, deciduous leaves. They produce clusters of flowers on unbranched stems, but can have branches but they are so close together, they still look like clusters. The flowers are similar in form to Dutch Irises, having narrow petals. The flowers have 3 nectar drops at the base of the falls. The flowers can be used for cutting. The flowers are also attractive to bees.

They also have seedpods, with 3 pairs of ridges along the pod lengths.

They tolerate a wide range of conditions (sun or semi-shade, wet or dry). They even tolerate clay or sandy soils.

They were first hybridized in the late 19th century. Michael Foster bred Iris monnieri and Iris spuria, to create Iris ‚Monspur‘.

Many hybrids have developed over the years. Including several that have gained the RHS’s Award of Garden Merit (RHS AGM);

Fastsigns

Fastsigns (trademarked in all-capitals as FASTSIGNS) is the franchisor of Fastsigns centers which provide a full range of custom sign and graphics products to companies and individuals who want to outsource their signage needs.

There are currently over 615 FASTSIGNS locations worldwide in United States, Canada, the U.K., the Cayman Islands, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Australia (where centers operate under the name Signwave). Countries where the company formerly had locations but no longer operates include Colombia (from which it withdrew in 1996) and Argentina.

Fastsigns was founded in Austin in 1985 by Gary Salomon and Bob Schanbaum. The first franchise was sold in December 1986, with its first international franchise sold in 1991. The company was bought in October 2003 by Roark Capital Group, an Atlanta-based private equity firm. In 2009, former president of PIP Printing, Catherine Monson, was named CEO of Fastsigns. In July 2014, Fastsigns was acquired by Levine Leichtman Capital Partners, a Los Angeles-based investment firm.

The creation and growth of Fastsigns was profiled in a case study in the textbook Managing: A Competency-Based Approach.

Fastsigns makes custom banners, large format inkjet signs, vehicle graphics, decals, QR codes, mobile websites, architectural site signs, digital signs, point of purchase exhibits and displays. They also provide in-house custom design services and consultation, delivery, and installation.

Fastsign’s CEO Catherine Monson was featured on the hit reality show Undercover Boss (U.S. TV series) in May 2012, which included visits to several Fastsigns franchises across the U.S. Monson stepped into the shoes of employees, working alongside franchise owners to perform site surveys, make signs in a production center, apply vehicle graphics, and install high-rise signs from a crane.

Sketch (drawing)

A sketch (ultimately from Greek σχέδιος – schedios, „done extempore“) is a rapidly executed freehand drawing that is not usually intended as a finished work. A sketch may serve a number of purposes: it might record something that the artist sees, it might record or develop an idea for later use or it might be used as a quick way of graphically demonstrating an image, idea or principle.

Sketches can be made in any drawing medium. The term is most often applied to graphic work executed in a dry medium such as silverpoint, graphite, pencil, charcoal or pastel. But it may also apply to drawings executed in pen and ink, ballpoint pen, water colour and oil paint. The latter two are generally referred to as „water colour sketches“ and „oil sketches“. A sculptor might model three-dimensional sketches in clay, plasticine or wax.

Sketching is generally a prescribed part of the studies of art students. This generally includes making sketches (croquis) from a live model whose pose changes every few minutes. A „sketch“ usually implies a quick and loosely drawn work, while related terms such as study, modello and „preparatory drawing“ usually refer to more finished and careful works to be used as a basis for a final work, often in a different medium, but the distinction is imprecise. Underdrawing is drawing underneath the final work, which may sometimes still be visible, or can be viewed by modern scientific methods such as X-rays.

Most visual artists use, to a greater or lesser degree, the sketch as a method of recording or working out ideas. The sketchbooks of some individual artists have become very well known, including those of Leonardo da Vinci and Edgar Degas which have become art objects in their own right, with many pages showing finished studies as well as sketches. The term „sketchbook“ refers to a book of blank paper on which an artist can, (or has already) drawn sketches. The book might be purchased bound or might comprise loose leaves of sketches assembled or bound together.

The ability to quickly record impressions through sketching has found varied purposes in today’s culture. Courtroom sketches record scenes and individuals in law courts. Sketches drawn to help authorities find or identify wanted people are called composite sketches. Street artists in popular tourist areas sketch portraits within minutes.

Ferrédoxine

Une ferrédoxine est une protéine fer-soufre réalisant des transferts d’électrons dans un grand nombre de réactions d’oxydoréduction du métabolisme cellulaire grâce à leurs clusters Fe-S dont les cations de fer oscillent entre les états d’oxydation +2 (ferreux) et +3 (ferrique). La première protéine de ce type a été isolée en 1962 à partir de la bactérie anaérobie Clostridium pasteurianum. Une ferrédoxine particulière aux chloroplastes intervient dans les réactions de photophosphorylation cyclique et non cyclique de la photosynthèse. Dans la photophosphorylation non cyclique, la ferrédoxine est l’ultime accepteur d’électrons et réduit le NADP+ sous l’action de la ferrédoxine-NADP+ réductase (EC ) avec la FAD et un groupe flavine comme cofacteurs :

La ferrédoxine des chloroplastes contient des clusters Fe2S2, composés de deux cations de fer et deux anions sulfure. Il existe d’autres types de clusters Fe-S, dont les plus courants sont ceux de type Fe3S4 et Fe4S4.

Parmi elles se trouvent la putidarédoxine, la terprédoxine et l’adrénodoxine.

Les ferrédoxines végétales, identifiées initialement dans les chloroplastes, contiennent des clusters Fe2S2 dans lesquels les cations de fer sont tétracoordonnés avec deux anions sulfure et quatre groupes fonctionnels thiol de résidus cystéine. Dans les chloroplastes, ces ferrédoxines servent de transporteurs d’électrons dans la photophosphorylation et comme donneurs d’électrons pour plusieurs enzymes, telles que la glutamate synthase, la nitrate réductase et la sulfite réductase.

Certaines ferrédoxines Fe2S2 bactériennes se sont révélées avoir des séquences d’acides aminés différentes des ferrédoxines végétales les rapprochant des thiorédoxines. Celle de Clostridium pasteurianum en particulier, dont le rôle physiologique n’est pas connu avec précision, peut se lier étroitement et spécifiquement à la protéine fer-molybdène de nitrogénase.

L’adrénodoxine est présente chez les mammifères en général, et chez l’homme en particulier : la variante humaine de l’adrénodoxine est appelée ferrédoxine 1. Dans les systèmes monooxygénase mitochondiaux, l’adrénodoxine transfère un électron de la NADPH:adrénodoxine réductase au cytochrome P450 membranaire. Chez les bactéries, la putidarédoxine et la terprédoxine transportent des électrons entre les ferrédoxine réductases et les P450 solubles correspondants. La fonction exacte des autres membres de cette famille de protéines n’est pas toujours bien comprise.

La ferrédoxine 1 participe chez l’homme à la synthèse des hormones thyroïdiennes. Elle transfère également des électrons de l’adrénodoxine réductase au P450, et peut se fixer aux métaux et aux protéines. Elle se trouve dans la matrice mitochondriale.

Les ferrédoxines [Fe4S4] se rangent en deux catégories dites à bas potentiel (de type bactérien) et à haut potentiel (HiPIP) selon l’état d’oxydation du cluster fer-soufre ; le passage d’une ferrédoxine bas potentiel à une ferrédoxine haut potentiel est illustré par le diagramme suivant :

Le cluster des ferrédoxines bactériennes oscille entre les états :

Celui des ferrédoxines HiPIP oscille entre les états :

Ces deux types de ferrédoxines partagent l’état d’oxydation [ Fe2+2 Fe3+2 S2-4 ]. La différence dans les potentiels redox est attribuée à la différence dans les liaisons hydrogène, qui modifient fortement le caractère basique du groupe thiol des résidus cystéine.

Il existe plusieurs types de ferrédoxines bactériennes selon leur séquence d’acides aminés, mais toutes ces ferrédoxines possèdent une zone constante comprenant quatre résidus cystéine liés à un cluster Fe4S4. La ferrédoxines Fe4S4 de Pyrococcus furiosus est caractérisée par le remplacement d’un des quatre résidus cystéine par un résidu d’aspartate.

Les gènes codant les ferrédoxines bactériennes ont évolué en subissant des duplications, transpositions et fusions, d’où l’apparition de ferrédoxines avec plusieurs clusters fer-soufre. Dans certains cas, un ou plusieurs résidus cystéine manquent à l’appel, et dans ce cas la ferrédoxine résultante perd localement la faculté de se lier à un cluster Fe4S4, ou bien ne peut plus se lier qu’à un cluster Fe3S4.

Les protéines fer-soufre à haut potentiel (HiPIP) constituent une famille particulière de ferrédoxines Fe4S4 fonctionnant dans les chaînes de transport d’électrons anaérobies. Certaines HiPIP ont un potentiel d’oxydo-réduction supérieur à celui de toutes les autres protéines fer-soufre connues, par exemple 450 mV pour Rhodopila globiformis.
