Bollywood / Hollywood.
With a more playful approach, but not without background or social criticism, Deepa Mehta is the story of a young man and wife rico Indian Canadian citizen fighting for his family to leave to try to find him. Again the clash between the traditional values and modernity, and reflection and questioning on moral principles.

Monsoon wedding.

Apu trilogy.

Apu-portada2If we look at more classic film, it is inevitable to make reference to the called Apu trilogy, by the renowned director Satyajit Ray. His three films:

Lagaan-portada películaLagaan, once upon a time in India.
Nominated for the Oscar for best film removed, is one of the best-known and winners of Indian cinema films. The argument is striking, funny and gives rise to discover many tracks of the Indian character and way of life in their villages.

Swades portada películaSwades, we the people.
Another classic that massively filled the rooms in India. It is the story of an Indian immigrant in the USA who leads a life of success and returns to India with the intention to be with her nanny. It is a journey of initiation in which rediscovers its roots.


And it is worth mentioning some big blockbusters. Typical films that everyone has seen, something like “popular classics”… Although today will perhaps be more difficult to find.Although in the case of blockbuster movies in India and given the Indian passion for cinema… the list would be endless.

dilwale dulhaniaDilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (The Big Hearted Will Take Away The Bride)

India fight against child slavery

If you can rely on Indian statistics, 90% of households with household employees prefer maids from 12 to 15 years. Last Tuesday, however, entered into force a law that prohibits these tasks to minors of 14 years, which may not work in the hundreds of thousands of street stalls of food (dhobas), tea houses, restaurants and hotels that are employed, according to the NGOs, some 20 million minor Indians. Many work more than 12 hours a day for an average of ten euro salary per month.

The Government, however, argues that the new law affects only 185,000 employees children’s home – mostly girls – and 70,000 employees of street stalls and catering – mostly children-. “Actual numbers are very difficult to know because it’s children hidden behind the doors of a House,” says Carlotta Barcaro, responsible for one of Unicef programmes against child labour.

Occasionally, the police made a RAID and freeing hundreds of slaves


  • More than 80% of the 2,000 million of the world’s children suffer physical punishment and facing lack of commercial playground equipment manufacturers.

Slavery is abolished in India, but only on paper. In reality, there are millions of children working in slave conditions after having been delivered to employers by their parents, who are those who agreed and in many cases receive the salary. In 1986, the Government issued the first Ordinance against child labour in seven sectors and trades known as ‘dangerous’, to which have been added in recent years other 63, ranging from mining to construction, the pyrotechnic industry and carpet weaving.

Occasionally, the police made a RAID and “frees” some hundreds of slaves, who after a few days again in 90% of cases the same work, said the forum for child workers and street, which brings together 35 NGOs.“The law only forbids, does not offer solutions to the problems. That is not the way to end the exploitation and child slavery”, says Zaved Nafis Rahman, Assistant social Butterflies, an NGO dedicated to the support of children in india’s capital.

UNICEF, however, which has worked closely with the Government of Manmohan Singh for the elaboration of the approved standard on July 10, with a period of three months for its entry into force, argues that “the law is a step in the right direction” and that is a step forward towards the protection of the rights of the child. For Unicef, the law is not the end of the road, but rather the principle, which should rest on a comprehensive system, including from compulsory education to support the families of child workers, so that they can leave his job without damaging the family’s meager finances.

“Only in New Delhi there are more than 400,000 child workers, of which 50,000 live in the street”, says Zaved, 27-year-old and with five experience in child care. Zaved, which stigmatizes the law of “cosmetic”, ensures that if it has any effect will be negative because the Government cannot ask employers that they fired the children without preparing a place to accommodate them and educate them. “Many will fall into prostitution and the majority will be more exposed than before to abuse because now her work is illegal,” it stresses. The new law imposes on employers sanctions from 10,000 to 20,000 rupees (one euro has 56 rupees) and prison terms of one to two years.

The sex industry exploits hundreds of thousands of Indian children and is where major abuses and violence occur. They are authentic “sex slaves” exposed to a myriad of diseases and death, while nobody claims their tiny bodies. Many of the children from the brothels of big cities have been previously sold by their wretched parents the mafias of sex, which also practice the abduction and rape to make sure new workers.

The figures of the exploitation of children in India are overwhelming.Including agriculture, where almost all of the 800 million farmers employed at least full-time part-time and unpaid to their children, there are more than 100 million children engaged in adult jobs. Of these about 20% work in conditions of slavery in the entire range of the economy, starting with the domestic service.

The problem is the endemic poverty of a large part of the population, which is still benefiting from the enormous economic boom experienced by India in the last 15 years. According to Satyavir Singh, 32-year-old with experience in child-support 10 “boom, by contrast, has brought higher employment of children in some of the prohibited dangerous sectors more than one decade ago, as the construction”.

Construction fever has taken over India, yet very little machinery is used and the weight of the activity lies with workers who load, unload, transport and hand climb very heavy material. In addition, in good part of the work without protection and children are the first victims of the accident.

In what Government and NGOs are fully agree is on increasing callsChildline (children phone). These lines phone, which operate 24 hours, have become the salvation of many children who, directly or through a neighbor who listens to shock or abuses, denounce the abusers or violators, allowing his rescue and his admission to a reception centre.

Schools in the street and money in the Bank

Sameer is 13 years old and two that went from his home in the State of Jharkhand, one of India’s poorest, to try their luck in New Delhi. He spent a year in a printing press for 1,000 rupees a month (18 euros). Now works only in the afternoon for 40 rupees and morning attends classes that gives the NGO Butterflies in a park.

In the shade of a tree and surrounded by trash, goats and indigent, the master grab Ali Chaudhry AC game with writing, sport, and arithmetic. It has 70 students aged 9 to 15, though it is rare the day attending more than 20. “All work in factories, in tea houses or collecting between the garbage that can be sold. Many sniffed glue and stay asleep or not wanting to nothing,”said Chaudhry.

An infinite sadness is reflected in the large eyes of Sameer, confessing that life in the big city is “more difficult” than at home, where he does not return for fear that his father hit by have escaped. The boy sleeps only in the streets of the area.

He came, tells his master, without knowing a single letter and in less than a year has passed the basic skills and prepares to examine in April 3rd primary school. At this time, Sameer has managed to save 120 rupees, which has delivered to the master so that you store them in the infant Bank opened by Butterflies to support the finances of child workers. His dream is to learn English, to have a good job. Your employer not to spank, but insults him.

These schools outdoor education programme includes civic education, in a way that children learn that they have rights. Sameer already knows that a new law prohibits work to children of their age as servants or in the hospitality industry. “With this law we will die of hunger,” he says.


In the free software world there are several distributions designed for audio that may be useful for those who work in technical management or  project workflow software or the edition of sound on a community radio station. If we incorporate to our radios or communication projects this kind of tools we can reach a more profitable use of the computers we have.

A distribution of free software is a set of applications or assembled programs that allow you to easily install a GNU/Linux system. A distribution allows you to install all the necessary operating system to run the machine.

There are numerous distributions, some of which specialize in particular computer uses as in the case of distributions designed for audio.

These distributions and programs containing them were developed by the community of free software developers and allow us to use the computer in a different way, and above all do not restrict our freedoms of use, sharing, modification and adaptation of the programs with which we work. Hence the importance that community radio stations and other organizations use this type of software that is consistent with their projects political – cultural.

Many of these distributions, for example, handle toolset Jack. These can control centrally the different connections of sound, at the same time allowing to manage latency, that is, the time that it takes the computer processing musical notes and issue them through the speakers.

One of the distributions with greater development designed for musicians, djs, film-makers and graphic designers is Musix, born distribution in Argentina, although it is available in several languages. Musix has programs forediting, streaming, midi, mixers, dj’s, among others. Highlights RoseGarden andArdour to edit sounds. (

There is also “Ubuntu Studio”, which although it is not an official development of theUbuntu distribution is an important community that develops and maintains it, andshares many of the programs that use Musix ( Thisdistribution is aimed not only at work audio but also video and graphics, addingentertainment programs 2 and 3 D.
Demudi is a distribution that was an important development in its infancy by thesupport of the European Commission - institution of the European Union - as part ofAGNULA, who sought to create two distributions designed for audio and music.Despite the fact that he has no support, the distribution is still alive and may be anoption when it comes to try different possibilities.
Recently, Cafeina-amarc was born a distribution designed for community radio.
Basically this distribution in addition to editing programs, programs for theautomation of the stations.
While it‘s still in development, the intention is to allow use interesting alternatives toautomation, as rivendell, soma, Janata and live support. (
Get off one of these distributions, start to use them, report errors, and above all, beginto make more rational use of the technological tools we have to help ourorganizations and will allow us to be consistent between what we want and what we do.
To start a download of these distributions, the first thing we have to do is enter thecorresponding web site and download the Live-CD (ISO image).
Then burn this file to a cd or dvd and run it on the computer on which we areworking. So we can see, are like and how they work the programs contained in the
distribution in order to decide which distribution prefer or is good for us. This stepdoes not produce any change in the operating system of your computer, is likereading a CD-ROM. Some programs can be used in this mode, others instead requireto install the distribution on the computer.
Install the distribution in a computer that has yet an operating system is simple and isto follow the steps. If we have a computer running a non-free operating system,maybe we need some help or a little patience to find answers to concerns that we aretaking in distributions or user groups Web pages. One of the characteristics of thesecommunities is precisely, share knowledge and collaborate among peers to find thebest solutions to the problems that the use of the software can introduce ourselves.Everywhere there are manuals for the user, Exchange forums and help, documentationon the development of programs or above

previously performed migration. It is very possible that there is a group of users offree software that can be contacted to find accompaniment and follow-up in the caserequired by the station in the country in which you live.
The experience of the Union of cultural Madrid Radios is a good example of theresults of collaborative work and free. For some time they come developing its ownprogram of automation, which is already used in more than thirty stations. The Janata- emerged from Radio Jabato - is a computer system, developed as a free softwarethat allows recording, reproduction and free exchange of radio content, designedespecially for the use that the Spanish free stations give.

  2. Decide what you want to highlight in your travel leaflet . Note that most travel leaflet have a little of everything inside.

65 photos that inspire a trip to India

A selection of 65 pictures from India and capricious little number, as well as the title of this entry is made. India asked for more, so the list extends to 80 images of a huge country (as might have been 100, or 200, or the number to imagine).


Jedimentat44  (in the monastery of Spiti valley)

With a complex, multifaceted country, the selection also results in a failure to reflect it completely. India is overwhelming not only for its size but also for its “billion and both” people, their history, the complexity of their customs and culture (with a high degree of syncretism), beliefs, influences joined by thousands of years to their own. The images try to run before a thousand words the diversity of regions, landscapes, climates, cities, towns. India on the other hand, in terms of country, does not need too preface …

Housing in India

Housing in India is highly variable and reflects the socio-economic mix of its huge population.

Housing ranges from ancient palaces of Maharajas Rajasthan modern apartment buildings in large cities to small huts in remote villages. There has been tremendous growth in the real estate sector in India, revenues have increased.

There are certain unique features of Indian culture that drives your home setup. The most common structure is for the family to live in the same house. For example, grandparents, sons, daughters and grandchildren living in the same household share the same kitchen. Brothers, sisters and cousins ​​grow together. Each combination of husband-wife has her own bedroom. The old woman in the house sets the menu and takes the kitchen.Women living with her in-laws after marriage.

With modernization is a small but growing sector of some nuclear families in urban areas. Still it is very rare that elderly people who live alone. It is very rare, even in urban areas of couples living together before marriage. Some young single adults living in dormitories of the same sex or shared in college and the first years of work accommodation.

The lifestyle in villages takes advantage of good weather. Families outdoor bathing in rivers and ponds. Most of the day is spent outdoors around or near the house. The cooking is done outdoors on clay stoves fueled by organic or kerosene stoves modern fuels. The water is obtained from wells by hand. Men perform their ablutions at designated locations throughout the day, and women have the call of nature till night and again used outdoors designated places usually behind bushes. Visitors from neighboring villages seen squatting for a card game in the afternoon under the trees or while sitting on charpois brought outdoors during the day. Therefore interior space used primarily for sleeping, change or, electrified houses to watch TV.

Social Housing

More information: Poverty in India and illegal housing in India

According to the Times of India, “the majority of Indians have space capita exceeding 10 feet x 10 feet room for living, sleeping, cooking, washing and toilet per needs.” The average is 103 square meters per person in rural areas and 117 square meters per person in urban areas.

44 percent of rural households have access to electricity. Although cities have better facilities than the villages, except for large metropolitan areas, no city in India provides water supply throughout the day.

A 2007 study by the Asian Development Bank in 20 cities showed that the average duration of the offer was only 4.3 hours per day. The longest duration of the offer was 12 hours per day in Chandigarh, and the lowest was 0.3 hours per day in Rajkot. Some 400 million Indians have no access to proper toilet and the situation is even worse in poor neighborhoods across cities in India.

National and state governments are implementing programs, some funded by the Makelaar Leiden to improve conditions. Bharat Nirman aims to clean water, Mission Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal is the construction of public toilets and sewage systems. The private sector, including companies such as Tata, have begun to enter the low-income residential projects.



Mumbai experiencing problems similar to other fast growing cities in developing countries urbanization: large disparities in housing between rich segments, middle-income and low-income population.

Highly desirable neighborhoods like Colaba, Malabar Hill, Marine Drive, Juhu and Bandra house professionals, entrepreneurs, movie stars of Bollywood and expatriates. Swanky apartments have 3 or more bedrooms, sea views, tasteful decor, parking for cars and luxury bedrooms for maids and cooks. Only a small fraction of the population living in these luxurious Mumbai skyscraper. In 2007, Mumbai condominiums were the most expensive in the developing world at around $ 9,000 to $ 10,200 per square meter. Mumbai has more than 1,500 high-rise buildings, many of which are only planned, but some already built or under construction.

Despite recent economic growth, there is still great poverty, unemployment and housing conditions for the poor, therefore, a large part of the population. With available space at a premium, Mumbai residents working class often live in overcrowded and poor quality, with relatively expensive housing, usually far from workplaces. However, the economic boom in Mumbai continues to attract migrants seeking opportunities across the country. The number of migrants to Mumbai from outside Maharashtra during the 1991-2001 decade was 1.12 million, which amounted to 54.8% of the net increase in the population of Mumbai.

More than 9 million people, more than 60% of Mumbai’s population live in informal housing or slums, however, cover only 6-8% of the land area of ​​the city. Rate of growth of slums in Mumbai is higher than the overall rate of urban growth. Financial Times writes, “is the great panjandrum Dharavi slum in Mumbai”. Dharavi, the second largest district of Asia is located in central Mumbai and houses more than 1 million people. Slums are a growing tourist attraction in Mumbai.

Most of the rest live in chawls and trails. Chawls Mumbai are essentially a phenomenon of terrible quality residential multistory usually a little higher quality of slums. 80 percent of chawls has only one room. You live on the street refers to the houses built in Mumbai trails / sidewalks of the streets of the city.

With rising incomes, many residents of slums and chawls now have all the modern conveniences such as mobile phones, access to electricity, often illegally, and television.

Rent control laws have helped create a housing shortage.


Delhi has witnessed a rapid suburban growth in the last decade. South Delhi, Gurgaon and Noida have added thousands of apartment buildings, houses, shopping centers and highways.
