RESULTS – Results which were declared yesterday and pasted on the Boards.

Surely a better way to display results can be found.

Secondly the results disappointed many exhibitors as in some cases the award was much lower than the award at previous International Exhibitions even after revised collections. The prominent among them were Mrs Dutta, Prof VK Gupta , Mr Pradip Mohanti , Mr Shakeel from Orissa  and many more .

Indian Stamps – Legendary Heroines of India – By India Post

Devika Rani -

The first lady of Hindi cinema, Devika Rani was the star and late manager of Bombay Talkies. Grand niece of Rabindranath Tagore, Devika Rani was one of the greatest actresses of the black and white era.

Devika Rani got the first taste of Indian Cinema through her husband Himanshu Rai, whom she first met when he approached her for the construction of a huge set for his first production – ‘Light of Asia’. After marriage, they left for Germany and once there, Rai joined hands with Universal Films AG and made ‘A Throw of Dice’.

It was in 1933 that Himanshu Rai signed Devika Rani for her first film ‘Karma’ which made her an actress of great acclaim. After a couple of years, Rai and Devika Rani set up the famous Bombay Talkies Studio, and she became the studio’s first heroine with Jawani ki Hawa, where she starred opposite Ashok Kumar. The two of them starred in a series of films starting with Jeevan Naiya (1936) but it was Achut Kanya (1936), which capitulated Devika Rani and Ashok Kumar to big time fame.

After the death of her husband Himanshu Rai, Devika Rani looked after Bombay Talkies. Among her discoveries at Bombay Talkies, was Dilip Kumar. Though everything went well for a while, but she soon discovered that she was not able to run the company as efficiently as her late husband, and took up voluntary retirement. She then married the famous Russian painter Svetoslav Roerich, and stayed in Bangalore till her death in 1994.
