Can science find a kinder way to save the bees? – Heather Swan.
‘The prince takes his bicycle to buy meat for his dogs’ Deep inside the heart of modern Delhi, which is all set to get a smart city on its outskirts if the government has its way, lies a medieval anachronism that continues to fascinate its historically inclined residents.
Five hundred metres down a little street that follows from Malcha Marg, after one passes scores of monkeys quietly going about the business and with the dargah of Khawaja Moluddin Chishti on the left a little before, where djinns are captured in earthen pots (matkas) by the residing peer for exorcism purposes, comes up the Malcha Mahal beyond which lie the forests known as the Ridge. Modi seeks to revive India’s ‘zombie factories’, not abandon them. Kanpur: At British India Corporation’s textile factory in Kanpur, four men sit in a control room watching computerized gauges eight hours a day.
When they are done, another group takes over, and then another, for 24 hours a day—much as they might at any major industrial plant. The problem is, nothing is produced there. The strange tale of British India Corporation is an example of how political patronage and India’s strict labour laws keep publicly owned companies going long after they are insolvent. Now Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who campaigned in this year’s general election on a promise of “minimum government, maximum governance”, is preparing to invest more taxpayer money in ailing state-owned factories in a bid to turn them around.
While the government has announced the closure of six publicly owned companies, minister for heavy industries and public enterprises Anand Geete said last month that about two-thirds of 64 loss-making firms can be revived with more money. Good for nothing. Facebook. Mechanical Insects Made from Old Watch Parts and Discarded Objects. Apr 15, 2014 The son of a gearhead and grandson to a railroad man, artist Justin Gershenson-Gates has always been surrounded by all things mechanical.
A self-proclaimed tinkerer and disassembler, Justin now takes apart old watches and other discarded objects and turns them into recycled mechanical sculptures and jewellery. As he states on his profile page: “My aim is to show the beauty of the mechanical world, a place generally hidden from the public behind metal and glass. My pieces display the more delicate and ephemeral side of gears, rather than the cold, hard factory feel they normally portray.” Online Justin is better known as A Mechanical Mind with dedicated followings on deviantART and Facebook. The Indian Quarterly – A Literary & Cultural Magazine – Perfect Ghosts. Sebastian Cortés chanced upon Sidhpur, an almost abandoned and now little-known Gujarati town with a rich heritage and a distinctive vernacular architecture.
He began to photograph the traditional habitats and domestic spaces of a comparatively lesser-known Islamic community, the Bohras. Like other migratory Indian trading communities, they continually reinvented their identity. Their complex cultural make-up is reflected in their entirely unique architecture, an amalgamation of Hindu, Islamic, Persian, European and Colonial styles. Haunting and dreamlike, his images often challenge the veracity of photographs, capturing the residual memories, history and fragments of life that linger in the intricate architectural features of Bohra dwellings. Cortés told us that Sidhpur has an added element that fascinates him: “the layering of visual, architectural and symbolic elements that seem to linger in the homes like so many ghosts.
Marriage an alien notion for Indian tribe. Udaipur, India - Live-in relationships between couples who see little reason to marry may be a modern fashion in India's Bollywood film industry, but for one community in India they reflect thousands of years of tradition.
Members of the indigenous Garasia tribe in the northwestern state of Rajasthan have been cohabiting in live-in relationships outside wedlock since time immemorial. Social scientists studying the arrangement - called dapa and recognised through formal rituals - point to a low incidence of rape and dowry deaths in these communities where women retain a high status. Long-Lost Honeymoon Photos From 1939 Will Take Your Breath Away. The bride did not wear white, there was no online registry, and guests certainly didn't use a wedding hashtag.
It was 1939; England was on the brink of World War II and Margaret and Denys Gardiner were simply in love. After their wedding, the giddy newlyweds drove around the English countryside for a few weeks before the world was catapulted into chaos. Their honeymoon photos, thought to be lost for the last 75 years, were recently found by the couple's grandson, Barney Britton, while cleaning out his grandmother's attic. They were shot in color -- a novelty at the time -- using 35mm Agfacolor film. The photos below tell the story of their honeymoon.
