WEIRD

 Hit and Run to Mollywood  Indian cinema is growing as a business.  However, in fact, cinema is an art and the epitome of art, they say.  A question has been raised if the business of film making is harming the production of good quality cinema.  Some young focused directors who concentrate on making content based, good quality cinema have answered it through their films. 

 Anurag Kashyap, Dibakar Banerjee, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Shoojit Sarkar, Neeraj Pandey, Vikramaditya Motwane are some directors who have brought variety to Indian films.  They have handled assorted and out of the box thoughts and stories.  Their films brought much needed variety to Indian cinema.  However, one cannot but feel sad that some movies with weak storylines have been minting crores of rupees due to smart marketing gimmicks.

 In the thick and rush of news related to Greece it seems world media has missed something. Something very, very important and that too it’s happening right in the neighbourhood of the Indian Subcontinent and has major global implications. I am sure those amongst you who have read ‘The Third World War’ book authored by Dr. Aniruddha D. Joshi might have already guessed it by now. Yes, I am talking about the Iran nuclear deal that has been reached just a couple of days back between Iran and the world powers.

 This process of ‘so called’ reconciliation started immediately after Hassan Rouhani, known to be a statesman became president of Iran succeeding hardliner Ahmadinejad. Following is a short summary of the conditions that have been agreed upon during these negotiations between P5+1 i.e. United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia, China plus Germany on one side and Iran on the other.

ENTHRALLING
India’s Soft Power
Along with a country’s financial capability, defence power, geographical importance, its soft power is gaining importance. A Political Analyst from Harvard University, Joseph S. Nye first introduced the concept of Soft Power. A country can set up its own image at an international platform through its unique culture, traditions, expertise from the field of sports, literature and arts. It is regarded as “Soft Power”.
Hosting Beijing Olympics and Kung Fu could be regarded as symbols of creation of Soft Power. Hollywood is an integral part of Soft Power of America. It is because people have accepted the image of America and they tour America after viewing Hollywood movies. If one understands that then one can recognize a place where India’s Soft Power lies.
There is a large population outside India who decides on their image of India after watching Bollywood films in their respective country of residence. The movies which are called Masala movies consisting of song, dance and emotions, touch a chord deep inside the audience outside India.
Shashi Tharoor once on national television narrated a story of a young man he met in New York. Mother of this young man from Africa travels to the city once a month from Senegal and watches a Hindi movie in a theatre. She enjoys the song and dance from that movie just like we do. She neither knows Hindi nor does she know English to read the subtitles. In spite of that she understands the story line and she enjoys that. Watching a Hindi movie has become a need of this woman.
Mukesh-Awaara-Hoon-AwaaraThe response enjoyed by a Hindi movie abroad is not a new phenomenon. Even today, people from Russia hum the song “Awara Hoon.” Shammi Kapoor is a favourite star in the Middle East. However, the number of Hindi movie fans abroad has increased geometrically and the impact of Hindi movies has also increased tremendously. India has begun to enjoy immense political and strategic push through this.
Several analysts claim that Bollywood has brought much needed visibility for India. Whatever visibility that India enjoys by showcasing Hindi cinema abroad, could not have been achieved by talking about India’s multi-cultural, multi-lingual, multi-religious aspect of society. It could not have been achieved by talking about its democracy or rich, ancient cultural heritage. It has been fairly easy to achieve that by showcasing Indian cinema abroad.

The Economic Crises of Greece

‘Hellenic’ means relating to Greece. Off late Greece is the country where so called proverbial ‘hell has been breaking loose’. We have been hearing various news reports related to Greece and the acute economic crises that it is currently facing. For many of us in India, we haven’t looked at this situation as a major global event except for some of those from stock markets or from impex sector who would be facing some brunt. Hence I thought of writing on this already brewed and further hardening crises.

Reference – www.express.co.uk
Greece incidentally is the first of the ‘developed countries’ of the world to default on an International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) loan repayment that happened very recently on 15th June 2015. The three main factors that led to these crises include a) the global economic recession of 2008, b) weak economic policy of Greece and c) sudden loss of investors which happened mainly because of the flawed figures and disguised funds by various Greek central governments over the years. To our surprise there were few major financial institutions which had adviced and helped Greece in these disguised frauds.
Now without being much jargonistic, let us further see some more reasons which has led to the Greek economic crises.
