 An adamant man who is inaccessible for common man launched  his new party will be called the 'Aam Aadmi Party'.His supporters do not allow  Aam Aadmi to meet this new self style activist and the media projected leader who speaks what media prompts him to do so. Arvind new shield for media to put subject across without their legal involvement. Media making an experiment if  they can build up political space which appears to be hopeless for people at large.Political party is a perpetual dynamic entity which needs to have ideas and dynamic  ideologues with complete vision on governance and do Arvind foot the bill, his surrounding says man has his weakness. 

A social activist turn a political figure the time to prove his mettle.Criticizing is not door to be a politician  but listening with rightful attention and emotion to people's woe do create a basic leadership quality.

 Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said that there will be no posts for a party president or secretary in his Aam Admi Party.He also pointed out that dozens of people had turned up voluntarily to seek membership of his party."Other parties have to conduct membership drives. We are lucky that we have so many enthusiastic members without any such drive," said Kejriwal.He also said that the aim of his party was to usher in an era of Swaraj.

Any Indian who was above the age of 18 and agreed with the party's principles could become a member of the Aam Admi Party, activist Arvind Kejriwal said on Saturday.He added that women and youth would be given special prominence within his party.The executive bodies and committees in the party would have the right to recall, he said.The party would also appoint Lokayuktas at the district and the state level.  Arvind Kejriwal said the norms or rules laid down by the Constitution was no longer being followed.
"We had dreams about India, but we could not implement those," he said.He added that in the last two years, since he started his fight for the Lokpal Bill, he had been repeatedly disappointed by the various political parties."We finally realised that all the parties were corrupt, they were all lying. All the political parties were united in corruption," he said.

32 killed in two gas explosions in China

At least 32 people have been killed and 47 others injured in two separate gas explosions in China, including a blast inside a restaurant which caught diners unawares.

Eighteen people were killed and five others remain trapped underground today after a gas explosion rocked a mine pit in southwest China's Guizhou Province.

The accident took place at the Xiangshui Coal Mine in Panxian County of the coal-rich Liupanshui City.

In all 28 miners were trapped underground when the accident happened, according to provincial government and Panjiang group sources.

Eighteen were killed in the accident.

Five miners had been rescued while five others still remained trapped.

Rescuers were searching for them, state-run news agency reported.

In another accident, 14 people were killed and 47 others injured after an explosion at a restaurant in China's northern Shanxi Province last night.

The explosion triggered a fire at the Xiyangyang (Happy Sheep) Hot Pot Restaurant in Shouyang County of Jinzhong City.

Initial investigations showed the explosion was caused by a gas leak.

Hot pot, the Chinese counterpart of 'fondue', is a kind of stew cooked using a metal pot kept simmering by charcoal, electricity or gas.

The powerful explosion shattered the windows of the two-storey restaurant and some neighbouring shops as far as 20 metres away.

Iron gates of some shops were twisted by the force of the explosion.

Witnesses said that there was nothing unusual before the explosion happened.

"Suddenly, there was a big bang and the hot wave ensued," said Yuan Heping, who was dining in the restaurant with his wife and friends when the explosion happened.

"The whole room was engulfed in black smoke and I had to use my sweater to cover my mouth before I managed to jump from the second-floor window," Yuan, who suffered slight injuries, said.

Former Brazilian Prez backs India as UNSC permanent member

India and some other countries from Asia, Latin America and Africa should find a permanent place in UN Security Council to reflect the surge of developing economies over the developed world, former Brazilian President Luiz Inacia Lula Da Silva said.

Delivering the Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial lecture in New Delhi on Friday, Silva said an International Monetary Fund report in April suggested the combined economies of developing countries will surpass that of the developed countries.
"The world's political order should reflect this reality and not the balance of power after World war II," he said and added countries of Latin America and Africa and an important country like India should find a place as permanent members of the United Nations Security Council.
Vice President M Hamid Ansari, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi were among those present at the lecture.
Silva said the global financial crisis of 2008, the impact of which was being felt till date and especially by the more vulnerable countries in Europe, required a rethink about the governance and economic system across the globe.
"Crises and deadlock, when they occur have also this advantage, they force us to think," he said quoting Nehru.
"Free market does not have a magic wand to regulate themselves," Silva said and added more regulatory measures were required than measures like "austerity and bank bail-outs."
The former Brazilian President stressed the need for developing a new psyche of sustainable development based on inclusion of poor citizens and marginalised population.
"In my country, this was the path that led us to sustainable development. The poor were not seen as problem but part of the solution," he said.
Silva said that by following a policy of social inclusion through schemes such as income transfers to poor, wage increase and creating conditions like beneficiaries sending their children to school "we strengthen the positive aspects of state regulation".
He said while the rest of the world felt the impact of the economic crises of 2008, "Brazil came out of the crisis bigger and better."
He said Brazil now is the sixth largest economy in the world and by 2016 it could well become the fifth largest.
Speaking about Brazil's economic performance during his own tenure as President, Silva said that in ten years 17 million jobs were created.
He said that during this time the income of the poor grew more than that of the rich and that 28 million people were lifted out of poverty.
This was the largest social mobility seen in the history of Brazil, he said and added "social inclusion was the key to growth." "I talk about Brazil but I am aware that a similar "programme is being followed in India," he added.
Silva said countries must focus more on our agriculture, power plants, rail, roads and above all education".
Earlier speaking about India, Silva said the country had attracted attention of the world when it was unified under the doctrine of non violence under the leadership of Mahatama Gandhi.
He said that along with Gandhi, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru had created a path for social development of the country.
Silva called for creation of a new global order which is more just and based on the principle of mutual respect to all the people of the world.
Earlier the UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi showered lavish praise on Silva saying "it is a rare human being who traverses the full arch of human possibilities" and the former Brazilian president was one such person.
"From being a humble shoe shine boy at the age of 12, he (Silva) rose to be the President of his great country," she said.

In collaboration with the Embassy of México
Sinopsis: Antropía es una abierta exploración para tres presencias en un escenario interactivo que les permite intervenir su entorno audiovisual, de acuerdo a sus desplazamientos y movimientos corporales en el espacio escénico. Podríamos suponer que nosotros somos capaces de revertir todo proceso de desorden, de combatir heroicamente la entropía, de ordenar el caos. Podríamos afirmar que La utopía es posible, que el planeta es paraíso, que el cuerpo no es la prisión del alma, y podríamos pensar también que la única realidad es la que percibimos y que el universo existe sólo para nosotros. ¿Pero quiénes somos nosotros? ¿Nosotros observamos al universo o el universo nos observa? ¿Existimos por alguna razón específica?, quizás no. ¿Estamos solos?, quizás sí, quizás no. ¿Podemos cambiarlo todo? tal vez, tal vez no. ¿Somos simplemente como somos o podríamos ser de otra manera?...

Synopsis: Antropía is an open exploration for three characters, executed in an interactive stage that allows the performers to intervene their audiovisual environment with their displacements and body movements. According to the company, we might assume that we are able to reverse any process of disorder, to heroically fight entropy, to bring order into chaos. We could suppose that we are able to re­vert every process of disorder, to heroically combat entropy, to bring order into chaos. We could affirm that utopia is possible, that the planet is paradise, that the body is not the prison of the mind, and we could also think that the only reality is what we perceive and that the universe exists only for us. But who are we? Do we observe the universe or does it observe us? Do we exist for a specific reason? maybe not. Are we alone? Maybe yes, maybe no. Can we change everything? Are we simply the way we are or could we be some other way?. Antropia is an open exploration for three presences on an interactive stage which allows them to intervene in their audio­visual surroundings, according to their corporeal movements and displacements within the stage space. Antropía, staged interferences of body image

Aprecio la total cooperación, punto de conexión con Kanna, el Dr Oídos, Sivaram, quién dio nombre por primera vez a nuestro trabajo con “Raga Español”. Kannan era el coordinador, la máquina, y César era un soplo de aire fresco. Era muy fácil tocar con Vipin, Kannan, Ashok, Priya y  Krishnakumar. Coordinar nuestros instrumentos era fácil, sólo teníamos que empezar a tocar y seguir los sonidos, como si volvieran de encontrar a madre e hijo tras un largo tiempo y emergieran en un abrazo rítmico y harmónico.” Iñaki Conejero.

Sinopsis: En la oscuridad de la noche, cuando las sombras se alargan y cobran vida propia, los ruidos recorren caprichosos las casas y todos los rincones parecen esconder algo misterioso, nuestra imaginación se llena de temores. Sólo la luz de las estrellas, de las farolas y de la luna a través de la ventana, consigue convertir esos fantasmas en formas reconocibles y ahuyentar nuestros miedos. Pero... ¿Os imagináis qué ocurriría si de repente toda luz se extinguiera por completo? Un súbito apagón de estrellas amenaza con dejar la noche sumida en la más profunda oscuridad. Tim, un niño asustadizo que vive en un orfanato, se llenará de valor para resolver este desastre enfrentándose a su propia sombra que es fruto de sus miedos. Para conseguirlo se sumergirá en una emocionante aventura a través de Nocturna, un mundo paralelo que surge cada noche cuando nos quedamos dormidos. Allí descubrirá a todos los seres y criaturas que hacen que la noche sea más o menos apacible, y con quienes emprenderá un fabuloso viaje para intentar rescatar a su estrella querida: Adhara. Nocturna: una aventura sorprendente para todos los que duermen y sueñan.
Synopsis: In the aging orphanage the days pass very uneventfully, but the nights are something quite different; at least for Tim they are. The light reflected from the stars is the only cure for his fear of the dark. One night this fear leads him to the orphanage rooftop, where he discovers that his favourite star has disappeared. Unfortunately it's not going to be the last one. Tim also discovers a peculiar character that goes by the name of the Cat Shepherd together with his faithful cat Tobermory, the latter to become Tim's personal guardian. The Shepherd is in charge of making children sleep peacefully, but Tim is not about to go to bed. He needs his star more than anything in the world, and will do what it takes to see it shine in the night sky once again. Tim convinces the Shepherd to take him to see Moka, the guardian of the night within the Night World, and pleads for him to return the stars to the night sky. Moka pays scarce attention to the boys pleas, so Tim asks the Cat Shepherd to take him to the Lighthouse of the Stars, where he thinks he may find the answer to the strange phenomena. Tim, the Shepherd, and Tobermory race against the clock through the streets of Nocturna, a world in which hundreds of the most diverse creatures work to create the night as we all know it. Little by little our friends will discover something strange is happening. An ominous threat is putting the night and the inhabitants of Nocturna in danger and Tim is unknowingly the one behind it all.

Sinopsis: Había una vez una casa en medio del mar, donde una mujer esperaba tocando un violonchelo melancólico. Aguardaba a su amado, un pintor que siempre quiso ser marinero para navegar entre las medusas, las estrellas de mar y los peces de mil colores que soñaba en sus cuadros. Su fascinación le llevó a emprender un viaje en el que descubrir la emocionante belleza y los misterios de las profundidades, pero tras el que ninguno de los dos sabía si algún día podrían volver a encontrarse. Un viaje al fondo del mar, un sueño en imágenes, una historia de amor, un poema animado.
Synopsis: Once upon a time there were a painter who dreamed about becoming both a sailor and a fisherman, and a woman who plaid the violoncello. They were in love and lived in a house in the midle of the sea. After drowning during a storm, the fisherman-sailor will be guided by a mermaid along an underwater route. Initiation route, transforming; along which he will meet the sea hunter of congers; the sheperdess of jellyfish; the large cetaceans herd; he will visit the city under the sea...
All these elements make, in a mirror play, an oceanic equivalent to the "heaven" as the location of the "afterlife”, and the afterlife in the ocean depths that he covers -a part of him- is the one that will enable him, in a fabulous way, meet his beloved woman again.
