10-day Indo-German Urban Mela to begin on Friday

Quote:
Chennai, Aug. 21:

The Indo-German Urban Mela, which commemorates 60 years of Indo-German ties, will kick off in Chennai on Friday.

The 10-day fair, at the YMCA College of Physical Education, will examine the impact of rapid urbanisation through cultural and scientific events, talks and expositions. Language classes, storytelling and art workshops will also be held. Visitors can also feast on traditional German and Indian food at the Café Mela, managed by Taj Vivanta.

The pavilions at the YMCA ground have been designed by German installation artist and designer Markus Heinsdorff. The opening concert is by percussionists Sivamani and Christopher Harberer and flautist Michael Heupel. Rock concerts by bands Tails on Fire, Ghostnote and Witchouse and a piano recital by Anil Srinivasan are also part of the line-up.

The sponsors include BASF, Bosch, Siemens, Volkswagen, Lapp India, Deutsche Bank and Bajaj Allianz.

Said Stefan Weckbach, Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany, Chennai: “Indo-German relations started in 1951. Celebrations began last year in September and they will end in January 2013. The urban mela in Mumbai and Bangalore had over 100,000 visitors. We expect the same response in Chennai too. It will subsequently travel to Delhi and Pune. India days are also ongoing in German cities of Berlin, Munich, Hanover and Cologne.”

4-day film festival to mark 60 years of Indo-Japan relations

Quote:
The Japan consulate with the Indo Cine Appreciation Foundation will organise a four-day long Japanese film festival to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Indo-Japan diplomatic relations. The festival will be held from September 4 to 7 at Sree Devi Preview Theatre, T Nagar. Masanori Nakano, consul-general of Japan will inaugurate the festival at 6.15pm on September 4 and film director Prabhu Solomon will be the chief guest.
‘Swing Girls’, ‘From Me To You,’ ‘Rail Truck,’ ‘Three For The Road,’ ‘Water Boys’ and an animation film, ‘Children’ are some of the movies that will be filmed.
The film ‘Rail Truck is about rediscovering the family bond, while ‘From Me To You’ is a play on the English horror movie ‘Ring’. ‘Swing Girls’ is about a group of girls who join the school brass band and ‘Three For The Road’ shows a loner in love with a courtesan. ‘Waterboys’ features five adolescent geeks who join the school swimming team, in spite of mockeries. Entry is free and seats are available on a first come first serve basis.

But seriously i would be glad to know when they change shows and how long a single show runs. The last two instances i saw in BP, they showed the competition between the NASA and Russian lunar mission. And before that they showed how plannets are formed and that one had brilliant display of colors.

@Kannan,
Ya its Nandanbakkam, My Bad!

@VG,
Its always about the Universe as others said and they relay Tamil version & English versions alternatively, so confirm English's timing before hand.

PS: I am not discouraging Tamil version but the Pucca Tamil words for every known english words will be difficult to understand.

When I went in July they had a show about planets and its moons. The show was good.

But I was really saddend by the state of the place. About every other chair was broken and there was not even a sign. In the dark when you are trying to sit down it is very dangerous. My dad fell down and almost hurt himself.

I fondly rember the days when I used to go there in the 90s and coming back with not able to see all the exhibits. Now the Science museum is literally a dump, all the displays were broken and they were moved to a side. The park around the museum is also in such bad shape. When I went there on a week day there was literally less than 20 visitors for the whole of the park.

What a shame.

Chennai to host international craft summit in October


Quote:
: In West Bengal, jamdani weavers Jyotish and Rajeeb Debnath work to give an ancient textile tradition a fresh lease of life. In Korea, Bang Yeon-Ok works to give mosi (fabric woven with fibres extracted from mosi grass) weaving a boost.

The Debnaths and Bang Yeon-Ok will soon get an opportunity to interact with each other and swap ideas. The master craftspersons will be participating in the 'Living Legends' programme being held as part of Kaivalam, an international crafts summit, to be held in Chennai from October 7 to 10.

"We have tried to match international craftspeople with their counterparts in India so that they can exchange ideas and techniques with each other," says Usha Krishna, president of the World Crafts Council (WCC), an NGO that works to promote crafts.

WCC is organising the crafts summit to coincide with their 17th general assembly, which will be held in Chennai for the first time. "Members from across the world will gather here to elect the next president and we thought it would be nice to have something exciting going at the same time," says Krishna. "It is an opportunity to showcase our crafts and see craftsmen from across the world." About 140 international delegates and 200 Indian delegates will take part in the event, which will see participation from over 50 countries.

As a run-up to the summit, craft events will be held at art galleries from September 24. "Though crafts and art are equally important, craftsmen rarely get the recognition that artists do," says Krishna.

Established in 1964 in New York, WCC is affiliated to the UNESCO in a consultative status. It has under its aegis five regions - Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America and North America - and has 95 member countries. Krishna was elected president of the World Crafts Council at the last general assembly held in Hangzhou, China, in November 2008. "Though Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay was one of the co-founders, it is the first time an Indian became the president," says Krishna.

During her tenure, WCC has started a programme for school children, taking master craftspeople to schools to teach children. "We also show movies to children and found that there is a paucity of good films. So we have decided to have an international crafts film festival," says Krishna. Students across the world were asked to submit films on 'Crafts — A Fight for Survival', Crafts— The Magic of Creation' and 'Crafts— A Signpost of Culture'. "We have got 50 films so far and the winner will be announced on the inaugural day of the summit," says Krishna.

Other events include 'Future is Handmade', a seminar which features speakers like Dr Syeda Hameed, member of the planning commission. An international crafts expo and a crafts bazaar will also be held.
