‘Mrs C Remembers’ investigates the politics of Indian families, where loss of memory becomes a tool

The first novel by Himanjali Sankar “adult”, Ms C Memorial, is described as an “exploration advancing the limits of presentation, disease and disruption, and unfathomable power of the human spirit.”

This novel includes many aspects of contemporary urban life in India, but Sankar subtly, instead of drilling, shows of them is the inevitable failure of each family.

On a simple level, Mrs. C recalls speaking to Anita Chatterjee and her daughter Sohini, navigating life as part of the Kolkata elite.

Mrs. C., whose name almost always belongs with the prefix attached (unless simply as “Ma”) is subject to the many social relations that prevent it.

I say that the novel is subtle because it is only in retrospect that Mrs. C. descent to madness seems inevitable. This is not what he remembers, as the title suggests, ironically, but he forgets that tradition imposes Bengali restrictions.

And what is the exhausting efficiency. Mrs. C and Sohini take turns telling the story of their lives. As well draped sari – based Ms. C holds – appearances should be maintained, preserved social relations, diplomacy exercised.

All this under the watchful eye of the abusive mother of her husband, who seems to grow long after his death at the beginning of the book.

For Sohini, whose journey from early childhood to motherhood was not as simple as Mrs. C. reconcile her mother’s compulsive need to please everyone with her future, it becomes a shared battle over a period of several subplots and 14 , While in the middle ages.

Mrs. C remember is simply written, with a prose that sticks to the goal. Sankar raises difficult questions from people who lead everyday life: can you be your mother’s best friend, even if she has told you that they are less of your brother?

Can the love of her husband, even if he remains silent when his mother insults him? Do not say “yes” to any of these conditions would make a woman weak? What constitutes a strong woman?

The characters try to relate to the political movements of our time – the Godhra Nirbhaya riots to stop Kanhaiya Kumar.

Although widely discussed – in a Bengali manual, left liberal form – it never fully penetrates the family, nor in the life of each character, not even in the novel itself. Despite the need to be aware and have a political position, ultimately, the characters are concerned about their own lives.

Even Sanchita, Naxal’s comforting feminist sister C Sohini said, “I thought about how our lives would end if something happened to you. Nothing else seems important when this thought comes into your head.

The only thing you want your child to be alive and healthy. “And Mr. C’s growing apathy for Muslims becomes a factor that the family must negotiate not because of major ethical problems, but because partner Omar Sohini is Muslim.

Instead, Sankar investigate India’s family policy. It degrades, is a history of fulfillment, the roles that family relationships seem to produce firmly, housewives, obedient jealous stepmother, insensitive husband, apathetic son, rebellious daughter.

While Mrs. C has spent her life playing – and adapting – these functions, she can, as she grows old, her forgetfulness becomes the ideal tool for denial, allowing her to reject everything expected all these years.

Set in the glitter of Gurgaon, ‘The Windfall’ is the novel of India’s poor little rich crowd

The history of India Shining, its growing middle class, as it is growing in wealth and consumption without restrictions, had its recent literary interpretations.

The Ghachar Ghochar Vivek Shanbag, a novel in Kannada translated by Srinath Perur says unintended consequences in a family visited by unexpected wealth.

A man makes a fortune, after a surprising and innovative company idea, and moves his extended family in an exclusive area in Bangalore. The increase in wealth comes with a moral decline.

Bangalore, a city with its recent modernity, also saw its claim by traditionalists who successfully challenged the old name of the city, so it has become Bangalore.

Gurgaon continues in the same way, his story is, without a doubt, more chaotic and dirty. The 21st century India has seen a boom in the service industry, and flourished Gurgaon, also helped by its proximity to Delhi. And now Gurugram Gurgaon.

Gurgaon is in many ways like the Diksha Basu shows in his novel, Bonanza, the opposite of Delhi, a city that adjoin. In Basu’s book, Gurgaon is mentioned in several places as suburbs of Delhi.

It would be very bad. The seamless connectivity between the two does so well (some might confirm otherwise, though).

In the bonanza, what is clear is that Gurgaon is a separate and radically different place of Mayur Palli east of Delhi.

For two decades before Anil Jha moved his family into an ostentatious mansion whose owners have already moved to Kensington, Mayur Palli hosted Anil, his wife, Bindu and his son, Rupak.

JHAs like the Ghachar Ghochar family come to unexpected wealth after Anil Jha makes a successful multi-million dollar sale to the website he had developed: justcall.com.

We will never know the details, but almost in a Sabeer Bhatia (Hotmail) in the same way, it lives up to the wealth. M. Jha is a self-made man, having lost his father at an early age, and obviously worked hard to make sure of his family.

But this wealth is transformed, at the age of 52, in a much more drastic way, like his wife, who seems to be against the heart with her, and his son, Rupak, who in the Ithaca end make clear what to do with New wealth, even his parents or himself.

M. Jha has seen many struggles, including her widowed mother, living a life of stress, and seems to want a transformation inspired by the neighboring neighbor Gurgaon, Chopras.

There are two strands of the story: a novel in an incredibly clumsy middle-aged stage, introduced by Mrs. Jha, Upen between Chopra and Mrs. Jha’s best friend, Mayur Palli, Reema Ray.

And Rupak Jha difficulties in college, to insufficiency of college and love. In the end, only in the case of self-awareness that has been granted in this novel, he realizes that he also failed to be a son.

These are based on JHAs and the changes in their lives. His new fortunes were completely successful Mr. Jha. The desire to excel not only to erase the last miseries, but extends to the acquisitions that M. Jha desperately seeks:

Readers’ comments: ‘In India, being secular means criticising Hinduism’

I think the need to change the name is a bit exaggerated (“Maybe it’s time to change my child’s name”: the new reality of being a Muslim in India “) Most of these are feelings. Confidence issues manufacturers get.

In reality, these decisions are not courageous, but act offensively, because they know they are not alone. On the other hand, the observation of the decreasing Muslim families seems unnecessary. If this is the case for any other person, the number of children we choose to have. – Umar Farooq

This article has surprised me for one reason: the brilliant way we can handle the situation at home and paint a picture that is far from the truth. Before I am accused of being pro-BJP or Hindutva, I would say that I am neutral and not biased toward either party.

I agree that violence on behalf of the protection of the cow has created fear among many people who eat beef, including Hindus, but the projection of the plight of Muslims in the country in such a light is incorrect.

How can one deduce the fate of the Muslims crossed the country by a single incident? Do you follow social media? If so, do you have an idea of ​​how ordinary people, especially young people, feel about these incidents?

I can understand that if political parties fool the public by taking these incidents and painted a false image of using their polling station, but assumed a neutral place like yours is that you are aligned with a political party or have a program against Of a particular community. Ashwin Kumar

His article, although humanistic, did not address some important things. Hindu generations grew up with Muslims everywhere in India who supported Pakistan, whether it be cricket or the Kargil war.

When some young Muslims are lynched (which of course is an unforgivable crime), the liberal media are the national political discourse. But why the mother when they were brutally hundreds and thousands of Kandmiri Pandits, raped and expelled from their homes?

Where Hindus are a minority in Muslim-majority countries, homicides, rapes and murders are the norm, but English media in India never publish anything about it. – Shiv

The problem is much more important than what you say. The history of India is well documented and is in the origin and solutions to this “new reality” that writes.

This is not new, this was even when the invaders came to India and many millions were beheaded.

Gandhi offered love. That may be the solution. Minorities in the world must be sensitive to the needs of the majority. It is peace, brotherhood and march together under an umbrella that saves the day.

Moral of love is the way to go. Certainly, the early invaders of India do not have a mindset like Mahatma. God bless his soul. – MBV

This article is partial and represents India as the most intolerant nation. Ours is the only country where the majority of the population has to struggle with the government to preserve its identity and continue to live.

If Muslims in India feel they are discriminated against and denied basic rights, they may choose to live in Islamic countries. Do not make articles expressing these partisan views and society hurt. – R Sivasankaran

Lets talk about racism | Our ads preach we will have better jobs, marriages if we are fairer, says Abhay Deol

My first contact with racism comes from my own country. I grew up believing cheaper is the best. The voice of “cheaper are the best” were around me. People pinceraient my cheeks and say “je kina gora” (if so), and keep saying ‘Soni kudi Milegi’ (which will be a beautiful girl).

Child, I do not know better and lived in an environment where it is conditioned to believe that the more it is dark, the less attractive it is. Even when I was a child, I suspected that there was something wrong with this attitude, but I was too young to fully understand. Boy, I was a fan of Parveen Babi and not a fan of Zeenat Aman, you know?

It was only when I went to study abroad at the age of 18 I began to question the notion of beauty linked to the color of the skin. I have had friends of all colors and the tone of the skin is introduced in our conversations when we discuss the rights of different communities. I was in Los Angeles, far from prejudices that had been stuck in my subconscious.

In the US, he was a “POC” or “colored person”, who is part of a minority community. The only time I remember being identified based on my complexion was when other people said that the colors of my dark skin was attractive! I was attracted to the black, white and everything that happened in the middle. This allowed me to think about how racist Indians are affected. In our country, marriage announcements and even textbooks sometimes say that we will have better opportunities to find a partner if we are more just. He should not be surprised that a promising equity product can thrive in a free market here in India. It should not be surprising that advertising preaches that we will get a better job, a happier marriage and the most beautiful children if we were just. They want us to believe that life would have been easier if we had been born just.

We are an ancient culture, but a very young nation. The boundaries I use to define my identity today were designed by the British. The values ​​I have come to define myself have been preached on this earth (while having a very different border) thousands of years before the arrival of the British. There’s a sense of schizophrenia when I read the news. Seventy years are not enough to represent thousands of years of mixing and sharing knowledge, values, ideas and religions. Imagine the immensity of our old acquaintance, preserved and preached like no other on Earth; However, we are still obsessed with a problem that is so superficial. How do you feel each morning when you remove the newspapers and read the violence in our country? Every day someone kills another based on the prejudice that is usually only deep deep. If color is what we become obsessed with, when are we going to talk about the most important issues of caste, religion, corruption, poverty and malnutrition

Trump LNG export policy sparks clash between big energy users and gas industry

Trump LNG export policy sparks clash between big energy users and gas industry

Large energy consumers should come into conflict with the natural gas industry over President Trump’s plan to increase LNG exports as part of its “energy dominance” plan in favor of growth.

Trump and key cabinet officials have made increasing LNG exports a central issue on the agenda of the United States energy administration during the “Energy Week” before the July 4 vacation. Trump said he wanted the nation in an age where power mastery is autonomous and capable of exporting.

However, large energy users warn against the administration that they deliver more natural gas abroad is problematic for the growth of companies and jobs nationwide, and ultimately could hurt the economic President agenda.

“Excess LNG Export approvals by the United States Department of Energy in countries where the United States did not have free trade agreement, does not comply with US policy Prime Minister and” fair trade “President Trump and constitute A major long-term threat in industries competitiveness and employment exposed to intense energy trade, “said Paul Cicio, president of America’s Industrial Energy Consumers, on Wednesday a letter to Energy and Commerce Secretaries Rick Perry And Wilbur Ross, respectively.

The Cicio group represents large industrial energy users such as the chemical and steel industries, in which natural gas is a key product. Its members want to ensure that the supply of natural gas remains stable and the price is low.

The letter was sent ahead of Thursday’s Energy Trump address to end Energy Week, in which he underscored that the United States has become self-sufficient in natural gas production. The rise of natural gas schists made the US A major producer of gaseous fossil fuels, and federal government projects that the United States would become a net exporter by the end of the decade.

But Cicio injects doubts about supplies that continue indefinitely. The 100-year supply of natural gas is a “myth,” if the rate of natural gas to be exported is reached, argued in the letter, citing recent projections of Energy Information that support that 12 billion cubic feet Per day natural gas exports up to 2050.

One of the major export terminals in Louisiana operates for this day, but another six facilities must be open for the next three years. All LNG terminals must be authorized by the Department of Energy before exports can begin.

Projection “shows that 56 percent of all natural gas resources are consumed within this period,” Cicio wrote. “For companies that build facilities to last 50 years or more, it is very worrying.”

However, for LNG and natural gas industry drillers, these claims are no longer relevant, said Charlie Riedl, executive director of the Liquefied Natural Gas Center. Citi’s arguments are even more disconcerting given that exports are based on a surplus of natural gas that will not reduce supplies to manufacturers, Riedl said.

“What we are talking about exporting is still a surplus of gas, which is the projected plan ahead,” said M. Riedl. “The administration seems to understand that, and I think it works very well with US policy first.”

Riedl said the Trump administration “understands we have enough supply,” while sufficient infrastructure is available “to supply gas to manufacturing states like Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and the Midwest where there is so much manufacturing.”

In addition, natural gas prices fell to about $ 3 per unit and the price is “expect to stay flat,” he said. Most midwest manufacturers are close enough to the shale gas regions in Ohio and Pennsylvania, “buying cheap gas at these facilities will not change with the export of gas to other countries.”

Riedl also stressed that the administration has consulted with some of the largest users of natural gas, such as chemical giant Dow, who told Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in May that he had no problem with increasing LNG exports. There are ten years or six years, Dow has been one of the main criticisms of LNG exports, he said.

U.S. auto sales fall for fourth straight month in June

U.S. auto sales fall for fourth straight month in June

Top auto makers reported a fourth consecutive month of US new vehicle sales for June and were below analysts’ expectations, despite huge discounts for consumers and more flexible credit standards, providing new evidence That 2017 will not be less than the record year last year for the industry.

However, auto makers stock rose, while retail sales to consumers were relatively stable to US auto makers General Motors Co (GM.N) indicating that the industry was in place for A good end of ‘year.

The Autodata consultant industry places the industry’s temporarily adjusted annual sales rate at 16,510,000 units, or the lowest level since February 2015. It was below Wall Street expectations 16.6 million vehicles and 2% lower Than in June 2016.

US consumers continued to avoid trucks for trucks, vans and larger crosses. Sales of passenger cars were also affected, as some car manufacturers, including GM, have moved to reduce sales from relatively low-margin rental agencies.

The US auto industry has sought a slowdown after reaching a record 17.55 million new vehicles sold in 2016. A drop of almost new used vehicles pose competition for new vehicle sales and car manufacturers have increasingly resorted to To consumer discounts and weakened credit conditions.

Automotive trading site Edmunds said the average length of auto loans reached a record high of 69.3 months in June.

“It’s a financial risk, leaving exposed borrowers to invest in their vehicles for a large portion of their loans,” said Jessica Caldwell, general industry analysis director Edmunds.

GM said its sales fell by about 5% from June 2016, but the industry will see higher sales in the second half of 2017 compared to the first half.

“Total sales in the United States are moderate due to a decline in total daily sales, but the key US economic fundamentals are clearly positive,” said chief economist Mustafa Mohatarem GM. “Under current economic conditions, we expect retail sales to the United States vehicles will remain strong in the foreseeable future.”

Ford Motor Co (FN) said its June sales were hit by sales of lower fleets to rental agencies, companies and government entities, which fell 13.9%, while consumer sales were stable.

Wall Street analysts are concerned that millions of low-mileage and all-rented vehicles planned to hit the market in late 2019 will weigh on future new vehicle sales.

Ford’s vice president of marketing, sales, and service in the United States, Mark LaNeve, said during a conference call that the automaker has just shown its competitors to reduce their reliance on credit – a bill to close a sale.

GM shares added 1.8% on Monday, while Ford’s shares rose 3.3%.

Automobiles Fiat Chrysler NV (FCA) (FCAU.N) said June sales fell 7 percent from the same month a year earlier.

But Toyota brand Lexus’ luxury car sales fell 5.4% during the year.

Nissan Motor Co Ltd (7201.T) said its sales in the United States rose 2 percent. But while sales of trucks, SUVs and crossovers rose 19.5%, sales of sedans fell 12.1%.

In recent years, Americans have increasingly avoided small passenger cars for larger vehicles.

Honda Motor Co Ltd (7267.T) said June sales rose 0.8 percent.

Tesla deliveries at low end of forecast, starting Model 3 production

Tesla deliveries at low end of forecast, starting Model 3 production

Tesla Inc. said it has delivered about 47,100 electric sedans and SUVs in the first half of 2017, at the lower end of its own forecast shortly after the chief executive announced that Elon Musk production of his model For the mass market 3 would begin this week and build 20 000 a month of December.

Shares were down 2.5% on Monday’s regular session at $ 352.62 after the Model 3 comments and fell a bit more in trade outside of trading hours, following the first half report.

Tesla says a “serious shortfall” of new battery packs had forced vehicle manufacturing through June, and predicted that shipments of the second half of the Model S sedan and Sport Utility Vehicle Model X would probably exceed those of the first half. He planned deliveries in the first half from 47,000 to 50,000.

Most investors are focused on model 3’s outlook and some analysts were skeptical about the planned launch in July after production delays and quality problems have hampered the start-up of the Model S and Model X

Tesla shares have risen more than 60 percent this year, partly on expectations of a major launch for its Model 3, the company’s first car to refer to the mass market. Tesla has a market value of 58 billion, more than General Motors Co and Ford Motor Co.

In a series of Twitter releases Sunday night, Musk said Model 3 had passed all regulatory requirements for production two weeks ahead of schedule.

“Production increases exponentially, so they should be 100 cars in August and above Sept 1500,” musk said. “It looks like we can get 20,000 model cars a month in December”

This corresponds to the target set by Tesla, more than 5000 models 3 per week by the end of this year and 10 000 vehicles per week “sometime in 2018”.

Tesla filed on deposits of more than 300 000 models 3, starting at $ 35,000 per vehicle. Its popularity stands out as the top US manufacturers are facing a slowdown. GM and Ford reported lower sales for June this Monday.

Model 3 was a turning point for Tesla as it moved from a luxury car manufacturer to a mass producer. The 500,000 vehicles the company plans to achieve next year are almost six times the production in 2016.

Reuters reported in February that Tesla closed production at its California assembly plant for a week to prepare for the production of the sedan 3, to meet its target starting in July.

5 reasons why Israel matters to India

5 reasons why Israel matters to India

NEW DELHI: Defense, agriculture, trade, diplomacy and water management will dominate the talks during the current visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Israel – the first prime minister of India to visit the Jewish homeland.

In addition to his official official commitments, Modi is also expected to meet Moshe Holtzberg, a survivor of the 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attack in Mumbai 2008. Moshe was two years old when the attack occurred.

“Before the visit, the two countries have prepared a joint economic enterprises roadmap,” Haaretz said June 29, 2017.

“The Israeli cabinet approved a 23-page document pursuing dozens of bilateral measures and a budget of 280 million NIS (about $ 79.6 million, or Rs 514 crore) – a larger sum than Israel has never restricted to China, Africa and Latin America.

India is the main destination for arms exports to Israel, buying 41 percent of exports between 2012 and 2016, according to the Stockholm International Research Institute for Peace, an independent international research institute and conflict.

Israel is the third largest source of arms in India, with a share of 7.2 percent in imports between 2012 and 2016, alongside the United States (14 percent) and Russia (68 percent).

Early indications of cooperation came during the 1962 Sino-Indian War, while Israel was providing military aid from India. Israel has also aided India during the wars with Pakistan in 1965 and 1971.

India rebuilt during the Six-Day War in 1967, Israel providing spare parts for French Mystere and Hurricane aircraft and AX-13 tanks (also made in France).

The emphasis on partnership was the provision of Israeli artillery shells during the Kargil war in 1999, while India faced a shortage.

In the late 1990s, a critical defense contract was purchased by Barak, an Indian, one air defense missile, purchased specifically for its ability to intercept Harpoon missiles manufactured in the United States deployed by Pakistan.

Indian imports of unarmed UAVs were almost all of Israeli origin. In 176 unmanned aerial vehicles purchased from Israel, 108 are unmanned aerial vehicles. UAV Searcher and Heron are 68.

In April 2017, India and Israel have signed a $ 2 billion for medium-range surface missile system, which will provide the Indian Army the opportunity to shoot down aircraft, missiles and drones distances of up to 70 km.

In September 2016, tests were conducted on surface-to-air long range missiles developed along with a range of 70 km, designed to equip three guided missile destroyers of the Indian Navy.

India has successfully tested the air-surface missile in SPYDER’s rapid response from Israel in May this year. The Indian Air Force (IAF) plans to implement this system on its western border.

India and Israel also cooperate closely in the fight against terrorism problems through a joint working group in the fight against terrorism.

Several official ministerial and senior Israeli visits preceded the Modi tour. These were visits by Interior Minister LK Advani in 2000, former APJ President Abdul Kalam in 2008, Interior Minister Rajnath Singh in 2014, President Pranab Mukherjee in 2015 and Minister of Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj in 2016.

Three ships of the Indian Navy, destroyer INS Mumbai, INS Trishul and frigate INS Aditya cistern made a goodwill visit to the port of Haifa in May 2017 to mark the 25 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

An action plan for Indo-Israeli agriculture of 2015-18 is operational and 15 of the 26 centers of excellence proposed in agriculture were developed in India with the help of Israel to present the latest technologies to farmers in India .

Phase I (2010-12) and Phase II (2012-15) of the agreement has been completed, in response to the Lok Sabha.
