FRAYING AT THE PERIPHERY

 

Cecil Victor-fnbworld By Cecil Victor

 

Asia Map-fnbworld

Nepal has escaped the Indian sphere of influence on the wings of a perception that has persisted in the Nepali psyche that India was responsible for the blockade of essential goods during the Madheshi agitation of 2015. Nepalis decided that such a situation would not be allowed to recur again. So they turned to China which was waiting with open arms and bagsful of money. Hence, perceptions matter....

Cannes-2018 wrapup-fnbworld

 

With maestros competing at the 71st Cannes Film Festival like Jafar Panahi, Asghar Farhadi and Lee Chang-dong among others, the festival ended with Japanese director, Hirokazu Kore-eda winning the Palme d’Or for Shoplifters. He is no stranger to Cannes, as it is his fifth time competing at the prestigious festival as well as being the 5th Japanese filmmaker for getting this award, raising him to the likes of Akira Kurosawa and Teinosuke Kinugasa (Gate of Hell, 1953). Socially relevant as well as a heart wrenching film, Shoplifters is a must see as it follows the lives of a poverty stricken family whose lives are in danger when they try to help a mysterious girl.

Rajan Grover-fnbworld By Rajan Grover


Israeli army women-fnbworld-rajan grover

From voting against Israel's admission to the United Nations in 1949 to establishing formal diplomatic relations with it in 1992, the relationsbetween the two nations ....

Torture Tools-fnbworld-Ashis Nandy

Years ago, an agitated Turkish scholar in Washington gave me a book on torture. It was a handbook meant not for the victims, physicians or human rights activists who fight torture, but for torturers.

The one who gave me the book was outraged by it; she thought it to be a weird instance of America’s cultural decadence induced by its global dominance...

TRIBUTE/JOHN ABERCROMBIE

 

RESTLESS for ‘TIMELESS’ 

 

Ravi V Chhabra- John Abercrombie-fnbworld By Ravi V. Chhabra


It was a night of unease and my restlessness sprang from the loss of a musical genius for whom I so wished to do an obit. His passing away at 72 reminded me grimly of earlier tributes I had done for greats like Miles Davis and Frank Zappa but that was the print era. Music proliferation was absolutely constricted. Also getting latest vinyls of new artists or tapes was next to impossible as India hardly had any reputed music stores. 


 

The moment I heard Abercrombie strum his chords that beautiful summer afternoon, I knew a refreshing era had dawned on musical landscape. In the album he paired with the finest keyboardist Jan Hammer (ex-Mahavishnu Orchestra) alongside modern drummer Jack DeJohnette (he played a sideman for Miles, Keith Jarret and Herbie Hancock ...
