Bepin Bihari Medhavi

He had a firm view of what should be carried out so that women could have more freedom, including the protection of widows and minor wives and she also objected to the practice of sati. Acuciada by economic needs his family had to leave their home in Mangalore, a journey made pilgrimage shrines, temples and sacred rivers. It was here where Pandita took contact with the suffering of the ninas-viudas, unable to marry again, with women alive should be sacrificed on the pyre beside her dead husbands and they were drawn into prostitution. He realized that women in India, victim of a degrading religious and cultural system, was classified at the same level as animals. In fact, in some Hindu religious texts are treated women as worse than demons and whose only God is her husband, who can do with it what he pleases. On that journey of pilgrimage, where he saw die to his parents and his older sister of hunger, religious beliefs Pandita had received from his father collapsed. He had travelled along the dusty roads of the India in search of peace and now her daughter was looking for another way that satisfied his soul. It is said that after traveling 6,000 Km wandering around the nation, came in 1878 with his brother to Calcutta, where he gave lectures and won the hearts of Bengali Brahmins. His knowledge of Sanskrit impressed them so much that, after a review by a group of scholars (pandits), was awarded the title of Pandita, meaning learned, being the first woman reaching such title in the India. After the death of his brother, Pandita, married a friend of this, the graduate and lawyer Bepin Bihari Medhavi, who was from a caste lower than the Pandita. This marriage was the birth of a daughter who put Manoramabai; Unfortunately to shortly after birth the girl, died her husband as a consequence the cholera.This big loss, later wrote in his memoirs, came to me more to God.

Le Corbusie

Only the small open window on a ceiling projects a solar beams on a floor which in turn serves as the projective screen. Ksenakis has learnt this lesson well and has applied its at creation of Diatopa, only instead of a sunlight on a floor Xenakis were projected a light flashes and laser beams. The crisis of the town-planning which has been especially sharply designated in the XX-th century, has led to origin of the new concepts offering various decision of the modern city problem. The great resonance what received by Le Corbusier’s and J.Xenakis’s ideas. 3. “radiant city” by Le Corbusie and “Vertical city” (“Cosmic city”) by I.Xenakis. Le Corbusier thought, that city is a symbol of struggle between the person and nature, a symbol of his victory over it. It is the man-made organism, called to protect the person and to create the conditions for his work. It is a result of human creativity, but this is not chaotic creativity and connected with mission of a city and environment. “The city is an instrument for work. Cities do not carry out their normal appointment any more. They become fruitless; they wear out a body and conflict with common sense. The growing anarchy of cities is offensive, their degeneration will continuously wound our vanity, touches our self-respect. Cities are not worthy of their epoch, they are not worthy of US”6. Understanding uniqueness and originality of this or that city, of its individual “profiles”, Corbusier has put forward the theory of “radiant city”, constructed on a linear principle. But it is significant that Corbusier’s poetic dream about rapprochement of the person with the nature has nothing common with sentimental idyll of a rural life. It is the rational decision of a town-planning problem, creation of the most effective environment for work and rest. Le Corbusier architecture shouldn’t supposed that obey the landscape, and landscape – the architecture.Acropolis hill doesn’t dictate to the architecture, but Parthenon.

1000 And One Night Of Puppets

Remember the song Makarevich? "Rabbits, tigers, wolves in a cage, they are all puppets in the hands of skilful and overworked" In Russia, from puppets largely remained just that song. Russian parsley is very few people interested, but on Sicily this old pastime has now become a kind of cult. Of course, ideas are already much smaller – Sicilian "petrushek" survived television and video games, but on those rare evenings when held view – in the theater going to the city The main leitmotif of all productions – is fighting the Saracen knight in shining armor with a sneaky Arabs. Nothing strange in this, because it is the Normans in the xi century drove the Arabs from the island, which at that time ruled the island neither more nor less than 200 years. Of the puppets are doing these knights – all the helmets, shields and armor always get off manually, and the medieval kings and their great surprise the couple crowned the beauty of a truly royal dresses. And as in Russia was the main favorite parsley, then in Sicily was a favorite hero of the narrative – the embodiment of generosity, selflessness and honor – Paladins have always differed and loyalty incredible courage. Certainly for the people who almost never pokladal sword because of the numerous rebellions against the invaders, became a hero at once the most beloved. Sicilians could not fail to inspire adventures of these romantic heroes. And so it appeared that most on there is a folk tradition, based on a poem written by Ariosto – 'Roland Furious' – it's incredibly long poem – 39,000 verses dedicated Palladino, telling about his life. Since the 39,000 verses can not be reduced to 10, the enterprising Sicilian puppeteers have made him a real series, which worked on the principle of "1000 and one nights", ie, every night during the year puppet show, every night presentation broke off in mid-sentence, and from that moment begins the next evening and the next day, Hall was again filled – the audience was anxious to see what will happen next All soap opera, or rather 'Opera dei Pupi lasted exactly 394 days. The audience, not breathing, with a sinking heart followed by 12 knights of Charlemagne, who valiantly fought against the Moors, witches and monsters, fall in love with the beautiful ladies, defended the weak and needy sometimes passions reached such an extent that some viewers literally jumped on stage to help the beloved hero.
