The shape shifter: A Wknd interview with Rajshri Deshpande of Trial by Fire

In a stunning turn, the actor immerses herself in the true story of a woman who lost both her children to the Uphaar cinema blaze in 1997. Deshpande gained weight, changed her gait, stepped into Neelam Krishnamoorthy’s darkened world. She previously made waves as a gangster’s wife in Sacred Games, as Ismat Chughtai in Manto. ‘I like to start, each time, from zero,’ she says.

Water you doing here?: Take a tour of new species uncovered in the deep seas

Batfish with earnest eyes; flatfish with both eyes on one side; a sponge that looks exactly like a tulip and a plant that covers several miles — as submersibles get sleeker and easier to manoeuvre, they’re uncovering more of the mysterious life of the deeps.
