JD Sports Fashion Plc has long been established as the leading UK specialist multiple retailer of fashionable branded and own brand sports and casual wear, principally through the growth of its main retail fascia, JD.

The Group now has well over 800 stores covering both sports and branded fashion but it all started when John David Sports was founded in 1981 with one shop in Bury. By 1983 the fledgling business was expanding into the Arndale Centre in Manchester and throughout the 1980s there were further openings, largely in the North and Midlands.

The first London store was opened in Oxford Street in 1989 and by the time of JDs stock market flotation in 1996 there were 56 stores. Maximum advantage was being taken from the growth in sales of international sports brands such as adidas, Nike, Reebok and Puma and the trend to wear sportswear more and more in everyday life rather than largely on sports fields. Additionally, JD had already developed its reputation as the most innovative visual merchandiser of sportswear with the best and most exclusive and stylish ranges.

The business continued to grow organically until 2002 when it acquired nearly 200 further stores with the acquisition of First Sport. Nearly all of the stores retained from this acquired portfolio have subsequently been converted to the JD fascia. In 2005, JD also purchased over 70 stores from Allsports, thereby further consolidating its position as the leading UK retailer of fashionable sports and casual wear. JD operates in both the UK and Republic of Ireland and, through Chausport, in France.

The Group also has a significant branded young fashion offering following the acquisition of Scotts in December 2004 and Bank Fashion in December 2007.

The Group is now the pre-eminent fashion and sportswear business in Europe with unrivalled opportunities for talented individuals who are looking to make their mark.

2009 saw further expansion of the JD Group through the acquisition of Chausport which operates from 75 small stores in France.

In addition in 2009, JD acquired the world famous rugby heritage brands ‘Canterbury’ and ‘Canterbury of New Zealand’ as well as ‘Kooga Rugby’ brands.

JD has a controlling interest in This site is aimed at providing families with their branded fashion needs at attractive prices.

2001 saw further European expansion of the JD Group through the acquisition of Champion Sports which has 23 stores in Ireland and a 50.1% share of Sprinter which has 47 stores

Also in 2011 another rugby brand, Kukri was added to the Group and the 8 stores trading as Cecil Gee were acquired from Moss Bros.

In 2012 the JD Group acquired the trade and assets of Blacks Leisure Group Plc when it went into administration trading from 290 stores under the Blacks and Millets fascias.

JD Sports Fashion plc has been 57% owned by Pentland Group plc since mid 2005, a group whose principal interests are in sports and fashion brands, such as Lacoste and Speedo.

Next stop is Manchester Piccadilly

You exit the train at Piccadilly Station and find yourself on a street where 19th century red brick houses cling to their glass and metal contemporaries. Yes, there is also Piccadilly here, but you are not in London, but in a city that will surprise you no less than the famous capital.

If you ask people who have never been to the North West of England what associations they have with the word “Manchester”, there will be several answers.The football fan will remember the two eternally rival teams, Manchester United and Manchester City. In the center of the city, on Market Street, two shops where you can buy sportswear with their symbols are just opposite each other, as if competing in shop windows.

If you ask a music lover, his answer is a long list of rock bands, pop artists and musicians who were born in or started their careers here: Oasis, The Stone Roses, Joy Division, New Order, Take That and M People.Learn about their stories and visit places of “musical fame” by joining the Manchester Music Tour, where for 5 pounds a famous radio DJ or journalist will take you through the streets and bars where famous musicians really “set foot”.

If you talk to the older generation, they will definitely remember Manchester as the heart of the industrial revolution. In the 30s. 19th century Manchester was the first city of great industrial importance.

The walls of the medieval cathedral in the city center are the best place to tell you.Even if you don’t manage to get on the free tour, walk along the left wall inside the church and notice a few pink bricks in the wall. This color of the setting sun was the cathedral before the smoke from the chimneys of factories and factories forever covered it with a black blanket of soot. The city authorities, after significant destruction during the Second World War, thought to return the walls to their original color during restoration, but then decided to leave the ingrained plaque as a symbol, like the scars on the hero’s body.

There is hardly a person who has never heard of Manchester.Over the past 20 years, the city council has made a titanic effort to transform it into a cultural capital and get rid of the stereotype of the “gray working city”. And it succeeded!

Free of charge in the Manchester Art Gallery in 1.5 hours you will see masterpieces not only by classical masters, but also many works by Laurence Lowry, a student of the French impressionist Pierre Valette. Lowry’s paintings will take you to Manchester at the beginning of the twentieth century. You will recognize the streets along which you have just walked to the museum, you will feel the mood of the inhabitants of the city of that time.The lights in Lowry’s hall and old glass on the windows will work like a time machine – and now you are a worker hurrying to the factory by 5 in the morning, or a housewife waiting for a bakery to open on a cold rainy day.

On the top floor of the gallery in the modern art hall, you will be pampered with paintings by David Hockney and Lucian Freud. The latter’s work was recently taken to Freud’s solo exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in Trafalgar Square in London.

The museum also has a playroom with interactive entertainment for toddlers, but be careful, you might like it there! Be sure to approach the mountain of suitcases against the wall on the right. Read how people from all over the world have left notes about the places they dream to visit. And by the way, get confirmation that tourists from all over the world are in a hurry to Manchester.

You can come with children to Manchester. You need to come to Manchester with children, because it is here that the MOSI Museum of Science and Technology, the Museum of Science and Technology is located. If you saw how a two-year-old French girl never wanted to leave the hall with engines, you would understand that MOSI is the dream of children and … fathers.

Moms at this time can shop at the Arndale Shopping Center, which has almost every famous clothing brand, including the recently opened Hollister, a twilight apartment store with wall-to-wall screens overlooking on the mighty waves of the Pacific Ocean. Even if you don’t buy anything there, it’s worth stopping by. In such shops the thought involuntarily comes to mind: do I want to go to the museum or I feel good here too . ..

Evening Manchester is a topic for an entire article.Remember only that in the 90s it was called Madchester, and club music from here thundered all over the world. Mysterious Canal Street with many bars, an alternative Northern Quarter, where you may drop into the democratic Matt and Phreds jazz cafe to listen to live jazz and eat pizza for free with the purchase of two drinks.

It doesn’t matter when you decide to immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere of Manchester: morning, afternoon or evening. This city will remain in your heart as a place where you want to return.

Moscow | The police urged the Mancunians to send a photo of the terrorist attack and not visit the center

Residents of Manchester are advised to refrain from visiting the city center, where the terrorist attack was committed the night before. As explained in the police, this is due to the work carried out by experts at the scene.

Many central streets of Manchester are still cordoned off, and helicopters continue to circle in the sky.The work of the Victoria railway station, which adjoins the Manchester Arena stadium, has also been practically completely stopped, TASS reports.

The police also appealed to the Mancunians (the historical name of the inhabitants of Manchester, from Fort Mancunium in the Roman province of Britain) with an appeal to help in the investigation by sharing photos and videos from the scene of the tragedy.

An explosion thundered in the foyer of the Manchester Arena stadium during a concert by American pop singer Ariana Grande.22 people became victims of the terrorist attack, another 59 were injured. It is the largest terrorist attack in Britain since the 2005 London Underground tragedy. Then 50 people died.

90,000 In Manchester

Me and 60 guys run through a shabby parking lot next to the Chorleton Street bus stop, just south of Piccadilly Gardens in downtown Manchester. The police are chasing us, their dogs stretched out on leashes in front of them. The crowd rushes noisily through the alleys, smashing cars in their path. One Toyota gets it especially hard when guys in sports gear blow their mirrors on the run.Half-drunk bottles of wine are smashed to the ground. Combat units rush out of the wagons to join the chase.

A few hours earlier, the police had fenced off an incredibly huge part of Manchester city center and have not left it ever since. From Piccadilly to King Street, from Deansgate and St Anne’s to Triangle, Arndale and Market Street. From this plan, it becomes clear that the castle they want to protect is the high street – the shops of the Topshop and Vodafone companies. Diesel, Miss Selfridge, Reiss and Krispy Kreme are already scattered on this street, hinting that the riotous crowd favors groceries and flared jeans over communications and pipe trousers.

Police cordon is so long

that it encourages small groups to try to break through. The police look like big guys in the middle of a mosh pit at a hardcore concert, and everyone else is mustering up the courage to join. And inevitably they succeed.

There is a trio of jewelery shops at Shoadhill Interchange: two on Thomas Street, another behind Arndale. One is plundered thoroughly, the other two will be attacked later. In the northern neighborhood (which is always described by real estate agents as “super trendy”) a Vans store has been hacked and crowds of looters are bargaining for sneakers: “I want a 45th.Does anyone have an extra 45th?

People beg me for cigarettes. Elsewhere, at Abdul’s – a take-out place across from All Saints Park, which appears to be the only one still selling – a teenager complains that 70p for a Rubicon can “is a joke.” “I mean, 10 more pennies and I can buy a bottle. 50 pennies, dude. Banks of 50 “. Most of these kids are penniless, although I see one distinctly middle class joining in looting the Dawsons record store.Children take their guitars outside just to smash them on the ground, and someone inappropriately plays the saxophone.

Inscription from employees in the metro

Greed is not the only thing that motivates groups to wander around the city center. There is something vaguely political about the cry “Let’s smash the courthouses!”, Otherwise it’s just massive drunkenness, over which no one seems to have control. People act erratically and there is no real “mood” to keep them going.However, there was a general feeling that every violent territorial or symbolic act should be followed by something more spectacular.

Jewelry store “H. Pollock “

From what I’ve heard and seen, there is little connection between the crowds in downtown Manchester and those who throw Molotov cocktails and who steal excavators for riding in Salford. Strange, but there are no clashes between local gangs. Feels the festive mood, summed up by the brutal robbery at the grocery store at the intersection of Princes Street and Whitworth Street.The crowd sips greedily from bottles of wine and champagne before launching them into the retreating vans of the combat units.

What is happening here is different from what happened in the Pemberi Estate area or along Mar Street in Hackney. These guys don’t live in the places they destroy. High rental prices ensure this, leaving the gangs isolated on the outskirts. Around midnight, people flock home. The police force them out, BBC reporters leaping to the sides, keeping their ankles out of the way of the dogs.Soon everyone will be chatting about it on the couch at home, perhaps planning their next shopping trip.

Hello everyone, it’s me again and our #travelwithleyla column continues 🤗. Today I will tell you about one of the major cities in England, Manchester

… City of rains, nightlife, cradle of English football, an important center for the textile industry.
Manchester is located in the northwest of England, with an incredibly rich industrial heritage.A major cultural, financial, commercial and transport center of the country. Like almost all cities in England, Manchester was also a Celtic settlement, and was founded by the Romans in the 79th year. In the Middle Ages, the city was a trade and handicraft. When the country underwent an industrial revolution, the city became rapidly grow, and by the 19th century became the world’s leader among the centers of the cotton industry.
Manchester is the second city after London, the center of British art. It was here that the first British repertory theaters appeared.For lovers of this art there is a large selection, the Opera House, the Apollo Theater, the Palace Theater, the City Drama Theater and many others. If you think that after visiting dozens of museums in London there will be nothing more to surprise you, then you are mistaken. Among the many museums, one of the most interesting is the Manchester Art Gallery, which contains works by Turner, Hunt, Holman, etc. This place is a paradise for art lovers.
Manchester is home to the largest Egyptological collection after London.For those who have visited the British Museum, there will be something to compare.
History, architecture, art are all wonderful, but how can we not mention our beloved shopping)) For lovers of this business, I have great news, in Manchester there is the largest shopping center in Europe Arndale. Besides it, in the city center there are several shopping centers with a huge number of boutiques. Also here is the largest Chinatown in the world. Having visited London you will understand how much more it is.
This wonderful city also has disadvantages, which for some are not at all disadvantages, but I cannot but tell about them.The first and probably the biggest negative is the weather. I very often drive around the country by car, from south to north, and every time I approach Manchester, the sun disappears, it rains, as if all the black clouds of the country are gathering over this city. Of course, this weather gives gloom and dreariness. the rain does not drip like, for example, in London, where without the wind under an umbrella, you can walk for hours on Westminstor, and it pours so much that sometimes even an umbrella does not help. But to be honest, I personally won’t be discouraged by this.This has its own charm, imagine you are sitting by the window in a local pub or cafe, there is a fireplace in front of you, you are looking at the wet asphalt while drinking hot chocolate 🙂 In defense, I will say that my last three trips were amazingly sunny, hot weather, bright blue sky. The second disadvantage is the lack of parks, one can say the city is made of concrete and glass, which is not surprising, as it was built specifically for industrial purposes. The lack of parks is likely to disappoint those with children, although if it rains especially in the park you will not run.Another disadvantage, for me personally, the city is noisy, as, in principle, it should be for a large city, again for a city person this is not a problem.
If you are not interested in shopping (or you have already spent all your money in Harrods or Oxford Street), you are not interested in football, you are tired of museums and galleries, you may like the idea of ​​nightlife. The city is also called – the awake English city. There are dozens of bars, pubs with live music and nightclubs, one of my favorites is the ’50s style clubhouse that looks like a beach hut, design elements such as sand and palm trees, a stone bar façade, an impressive tropical aquarium and Hawaiian artifacts create a very cool atmosphere. …
It is impossible not to mention music, many musical groups such as Oasis, Take that, Chemical Brothers, Simply red, were formed here. The city has a huge arena for 21 thousand people, where world-class stars regularly perform.
The city’s main pride, one of a kind, is the Football Museum, which is free to enter, and for me as a football lover and Man United fan, this museum is especially interesting. If you are indifferent to football, it will be wild if you are periodically asked which team you support, there are two main clubs in Manchester (Manchester city and Manchester United), whose fans are waging a fierce and irreconcilable war.The stadiums of these two football clubs are striking in their scale, be sure to visit them if you are in the city. I think looking at the stadium where David Beckham trained is interesting even for those who are not at all interested in football)))

Good luck to everyone
See you soon 😘🇬🇧❤️

Walk in the Hindu crowd. All four sides

Walk in the Hindu crowd

India, January 1999

If you are going to India, I will give you advice from an experienced traveler: Don’t tell anyone about it.No, really – you’d better lie that you are going to Devonshire to visit your elderly grandmother. Announcing your imminent trip to India is like admitting a major bad luck: everyone has a useful recommendation or a cherished address for you. The mere mention of India turns half of your friends into ardent fans of this country. “Surely you will go to Dharma-Baharma? They ask with poorly concealed missionary fervor. – No?! Then you just have to reconsider your plans. ” I am not kidding.I had twenty faxes with hand-drawn itineraries, called many times in the middle of the night, and received letters from strangers who were gurus of sub-continental tourism. And they all ended their unsolicited consultations with the same sore-mouth phrase: “If you are not going to visit the palace in Zakavyk, then you will not see real India and you can not go there at all.”

As if for a Westerner the whole of India does not seem completely unreal! I tried to imagine Indians saying to each other, “Well, of course, if you don’t go to Sheffield and visit the Arndale Mall, you won’t see the real England.”And the rest of your friends – those who cannot be called newly made sahibs – will say: “Ah, India! Fine, I would have gone myself, but I’m afraid I won’t be able to stand it – I mean, there are so many beggars, there won’t be enough nerves. Aren’t you afraid? ”

India confidently ranks first among the poorest countries in the world. Everyone knows – it has long become a commonplace – that there is no one in the world poorer than the Hindus. In the rich West, it is believed that only people with an atrophied conscience are capable of meeting this fact face to face.And for those who have a kind and sensitive heart, this is too serious a test, so it is better not to go at all, not to watch. When it comes to India, this question is most often asked: how will you fight poverty. The best answer I know comes from Mark Tully, a veteran reporter from Delhi: “I don’t have to fight poverty, it’s the poor who have to fight poverty.” To which I would add that poverty is exactly what attracts us to India. Poverty has created India, made it what it is.If Indira Gandhi’s dream of a modern, aggressive, powerful economy came true and her homeland turned into a gigantic Malaysia or Singapore, we would not have such an interest in her. It is against the backdrop of the heavy share of the overwhelming majority that its architecture, as well as all this luxury, abundance and other attributes of Indian princes and Indian history, look so impressive. All over India you are confronted with these contrasts of wealth and poverty, power and helplessness, unthinkable beauty and monstrous ugliness.Everywhere you look, you see this binary metaphor; you are surrounded by a whole encyclopedia of contradictions, dichotomies and counterpoints. Indians, and all without exception, are the cleanest people in the world; they wash themselves mornings and evenings like disinfectant surgeons, and then work all day on the streets, which are open gutters, where pigs dig and mangy dogs roam. It doesn’t fit in my head – but such is it, India.

Be sure to go to Agra, although your compatriots from among the newly minted sahibs will never approve of such an intention.“Well, yes, there is the Taj Mahal,” they will say. – It is clear that you want to look at it. He is, of course, beautiful (heavy sigh), but not the same for a long time – he was badly spoiled. ” Don’t believe it. Agra is an industrial and military center, dirty and noisy; the soldiers live in the former houses of the officers of the colonial troops, but in general the city looks quite modern, with the amendment that in India even the buildings of yesterday’s construction seem hopelessly decrepit. But it is also the place where most of the historical sites inscribed on the World Heritage List are in the world – the former capital of the Mughal Empire.And right in the middle of it stands the Taj Mahal, erected by Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife – however, as usually happens in India, everything is not so simple here either. She was his second wife and died in childbirth, and then one of her sons killed all his brothers and locked old Shah Jahan in the castle, where he died. Perhaps the best, most spectacular view of the wonderful tomb he built from his balcony opens up. Everyone should see the Taj at least once. It is absolute, and there is so little absolute in the world – it is absolutely beautiful, absolutely stunning.Situated close to the river, in the corner of a park – this park was designed according to the Arab canon, but the Victorians, with their inherent confidence and arrogance, planted it again, likening to an English country park – the Taj Mahal gleams heartbreakingly beautifully in the blue of the sky. Seeing its perfect symmetry, this mathematical perfection, is almost excruciating. This is the most complete creation of human hands, and nothing can belittle it – not crowds of curious people, not endless reproductions that make his image commonplace, not the ridicule of Noel Coward [22] and epicurean snobs, not countless newlyweds, patiently standing in line, to be photographed on the bench of Princess Diana [23].Nothing can influence it or add anything to it – not moonlight, not dawn, not twilight. It’s just weather and lighting. If you can only visit one place in all of India – what is there in India, on the whole planet – let it be Taj.

The second place where newly minted sahibs would never advise you to go is New Delhi. Even those who live there will not praise him. Like Pretoria, Canberra and Washington, it is a capital without a soul, an empty phrase – a capital only because state institutions and embassies are rammed there.But New Delhi has at least one reason to be proud – it is a magnificent example of English architecture. You will see the Viceroy Palace, the creation of Sir Edwin Lachens, and the alley leading to it from the Indian Gate (Arc de Triomphe of red stone), which will give a hundred points ahead and the Champs Elysees, and London Mall, and any other embodiment of bragging and power. A mile from the palace, in old Delhi, is Chowpatty Street, where wholesale goods from all over India are traded. Looking there, you will understand what boiling stagnation is.After this spectacle, Cecil de Mille’s paintings seem to be masterpieces no worse than Bergman’s; the last word of the local market economy and capitalist anarchism, Chowpatty Street, clearly demonstrates the impossibility of organizing India, mastering India, and imposing Western logic on India.

Shimla – mountain resort, the former summer residence of the Viceroys. The city climbs the lower spurs of the Himalayas among pine forests and dizzying views. The pseudo-Tudor-style corrugated iron houses make it look like a Godalming / Alice Springs hybrid. [24]A large roadside poster greets guests of Indian Switzerland; well, the real one might envy her. Now the new Indian middle class is coming to Shimla to rest; we have not seen a single white face here, except for our own. Families who have made a fortune in foreign trade and the ancient craft – minting for metal and hungry for the Western way of life. Men sport Pringle sweaters and Sta-Prest slacks, but here’s another contradiction: women wear traditional saris and kurta.They make strange pairs: men look like slovenly plumbers from Milwaukee, leaving for a Sunday picnic, and women are defiantly Asian-luxurious – and they all ceremoniously move to Scandal Point Square, where evil, disappointed exemplary wives of English sahibs. Indians are overly polite – they smile, chuckle and treat each other with exaggerated compliments.

I came to Shimla for Kipling’s India. It was here that Kipling’s father built an amateur theater and here, in the luxurious Cecil Hotel, his son wrote.Now imperial splendor and comfort are lovingly recreated in it. In one dark alley, I found second-hand and antique shops, as if they had migrated here directly from Kim, [25], but the longer you look around, the paler the ghosts of those old stories become. I soon realized that Kipling’s India existed only in the sleepy, musty atmosphere of the homes of the English parish priests. Looking for her in India is as pointless as going across the English Channel in search of Graham Greene’s France. After all, Kipling himself was not looking for Kipling’s India, but I carry the literary burden of the empire and my family mythology, soaked with mother’s milk, all these tea plantations and cork helmets.India has penetrated into our souls much deeper than the British rule – into the souls of local residents. A polite and courteous people, Indians are always ready to say what you are pleased to hear: that they are terribly grateful to the British for the railways, and for the post office, and for government services – but do you often think about your post office, or about the railways, or about the state apparatus? British rule was not overthrown deliberately, it was not carried away by a wave of popular anger – it simply drowned in the sea of ​​everyday life under the burden of worries about how to get a bowl of dhala [26] and a few rupees.Indian poverty consumes everything and transforms everything in its own unique way. Transforms, embellishes. All these vaunted government services, all this office, which we left them, turned into a complex, unthinkable conglomeration of circulars, questionnaires, rubber stamps and swollen folders. Comprehending the structure of the Indian civil service is as prohibitively difficult as building an Indian temple. Leaving the Bombay airport, I took with me nine different stamps, and the last of them, with a grin, shrugged my shoulders, slapped on the luggage tag, since there was nowhere else to go.

Wandering through the pine-scented streets of Shimla, I wondered how the Indians tactfully and unobtrusively buried the two centuries that they spent with us and which we are so proud of. How little is left of them! And suddenly a military orchestra burst out on the square nearby, the rays of the setting sun glittered on the spire of the Surrey church and the gabled roof of the officers’ club, in front of which the Gurkha riflemen stretched out on guard [27] – and “the rock of time opened before me,” as one Christian hymn says , and the years rolled back, and I was overwhelmed with memories of the past, flooded with dreams of that time and life that I had never lived in reality, which existed only in books and on film, about white elephants and boys with fans, sepoys and redans.A ghostly echo of our finest hour – but only I heard it, and this is also typical for India: everything that you can or want to dream about is here, and everything that was told to you is true. India willingly accepts all dreams, all interpretations – they are all correct, but none of them embraces the whole truth, as in Hinduism, this most attractive and most annoying of religions. He is infinitely accommodating, but stubbornly fatalistic. It starts with a simple trinity, but then 30 million, or 300 million, or 3 billion minor gods are added to it; all three figures were communicated to me as absolutely reliable.India’s mainstream religion is overwhelmingly complex and frighteningly simple – no other country in the world believes it, nor can it afford it. You cannot turn into Hindus, you cannot jump on a train of reincarnation slowly creeping along a giant circle halfway. However, many Westerners rummage through this colossal flea market, looking for something useful for themselves – for example, doing yoga as physical exercise, although this is about the same as jogging along the Way of the Cross in order to improve health.

Common sense, rational approach to reality is alien to India. Even a shovel, and that is arranged here in its own way – is a tool for two. One holds her by the handle, the other pulls on a rope tied to a bayonet. Once, in the forty-degree heat, I watched a couple of hard workers – one with a small chisel, the other with a mallet – chipping pieces off a rock the size of the Taj Mahal dome. They were going to raze her to the ground. It was a Sisyphean task of epic proportions that defied the scope of ordinary human life.But they acted with the calm unhurriedness of people who know that all life is just an illusion and there is only karma, only rhythmic pounding over a stone in this life as preparation for the next, in which they may become foremen.

Everyone will agree that you need to see Rajasthan, although even here the newly minted sahibs will recommend only the most inaccessible places. Driving on Indian roads is akin to an attraction – it will take your breath away. Cheerfully painted trucks are dangling in potholes, and everyone behind them is painted with a cheerful “hum, please”.Eight to nine hours on this Asian equivalent of a roller coaster, where all other drivers are reassured by the airbags of reincarnation, is a hassle, hardly compatible with relaxation in our understanding of the word. Rajasthan consists of fortresses and palaces. After an unusually short period of time, they merge into a kaleidoscope of dazzling luxury. You do not cease to be amazed, but you lose the ability to internally react to your own amazement. I confess that my jaw dropped all the way to the stop, and my eyes were trying to fall out of their sockets.The mantra of the guides, listing incredible facts, was repeated for the second, third, fourth time: “All from one piece of marble, entirely handmade, all made of real gold, real silver, the largest, the widest, the highest, the most expensive.” You are as if tirelessly blinded by the brightest flashes, as a result of which you gradually drown in this eastern decadence. But Indians do not have the habit of running around with their national heritage as with a written sack: there is not even a trace of that trepidation and aspiration with which the British paint their country estates.One place turned out to be unexpectedly strange, out of the ordinary. At the hotel we were told that we should see the world’s largest cannon on wheels. To be honest, I wanted to ignore this ad. I did not come to India to admire the largest cannon, but it so happened that we nevertheless found ourselves in front of it – a gigantic piece of sewer pipe decorated with decorative carvings on convex wheels, in the shadow of which a soldier was dozing. A less inspiring and memorable contraption is hard to imagine.But she was in a place called Jagger Fort, a dilapidated seventeenth-century military camp on the crest of a hill, home to pigeons, green parrots, and monkeys. Victorian landauses and palanquins rotted among crumbling stone ruins, and there I found a dilapidated stage, a neglected garden, a stand with faded, curled-around photographs of durbars and forgotten polo matches, all quietly dozing in the sultry haze. From the outposts one could see Jaipur and the brown desert, over which kites and eagles hovered in the heated streams, and wild figs with banyan trees slowly, slowly tore apart the rickety walls with their roots.There I experienced another influx of dreams and surreal memories.

When I first came to India, twenty-five years ago, before any outing I had to eat my fill. In public places, clients were treated to either rubbish, or poison, or both at the same time. The most striking change in India is that local food can now be eaten. In all hotels, food is quite acceptable, often good, and sometimes beyond praise. The food on the streets looks delicious and smells extremely tempting, but taking it inside is still too risky – not because the cooks are slovens, but because vegetables are grown on human dung by necessity.Our delicate western guts are too vulnerable. Gastronomic liquidity is the second most frequent issue raised in conversations about India, and the truth is, you should only go there in the company of people with whom you can calmly discuss the quality of your chair. Personally, I am ready to discuss the outhouse topic even for seven hours in a row. Indian food is carminative – greens and legumes are hard to digest, so another group of Dutch tourists can, with their eyes closed, mistaken for a running motorcycle exhibition. An expression of painful concentration does not leave their faces, since farting in India means playing Russian, or rather Indian, roulette with underwear.I got off with the rarest disease in the tropics – constipation.

In Bombay, I finally found the trail of Kipling. I love Bombay, that New York and Gomorrah mix, the most exhilarating and enjoyable city in the world. I love the flea market on Matton Street, and the red-light district with its dirty streets and eunuchs in colorful saris, and the flea market at Victoria Station, and Dhobigat, the world’s largest open-air laundry. The rainy season was not over yet, and after lunch it was pouring like a bucket. I was invited to see the building where Kipling was born (now an art school).In the seething ditch outside, squatting on his heels, splashed a small naked child – roughly cropped black hair hanging down to his shoulders, a swarthy little body wriggling like a snake – and the memory took me to my grandmother’s house with its Benares copper lamps, shabby leopard skins, Turkish rugs and mine a favorite evening fairy tale with wonderful pen drawings: this child was the spitting image of Mowgli, a frog, carelessly swimming in the Waingang River, although motor scooters and taxis rushed past every now and then.

One final note about poverty.There are more beggars in London’s Soho than in Bombay. Ours are not so expressive, and they have fewer reasons for such a life, but in number they clearly exceed the Bombay ones. Morocco or Naples have more pesky street vendors than India. And if you are seriously concerned about the problem of poverty, then allow yourself to be cheated properly. Do not bicker with taxi drivers and souvenir sellers – you are initially in an unequal position with them. It is terribly embarrassing to hear from the wives of newly made Sahibs that poverty, of course, is terrible, but “how do you like my shawl? I managed to bargain it for half the price.India is a poor country, but only in an economic sense. In any other, she is richer than the fantasies of the most desperate greedy. Any fool can easily wind up democracy, free speech, and rudimentary social security if they have the money, but try to get it all penniless – I very much doubt you can do it. India is such a miracle state – a secular democratic theocracy. And if wealth is judged by what really matters – nepotism, spirituality, good manners, inquisitiveness, ingenuity, sharpness, culture, history and food – then India will preside over the next G8 conference and provide charitable aid to residents. California.Of all the places where you will not go because of disgust, vague fears, laziness and a capricious stomach, India will undoubtedly be your biggest loss.

In the mad hustle and bustle of the Bombay railway, where fatal accidents happen every day, a man ran into me. I mention this because it is extremely rare. Indians are very clever at making their way through the crowd. When our shoulders collided, he touched his chest with his fingers. This is a silent apology and prayer.In each of us there is a spark of God, and he apologized to his particle of deity for knocking it on mine. Even if we gave them iron for the railroad, they populated it with three thousand million gods.

Continuation for liters 90,000 You Can’t Run Away From Love – Maeve Heren »📚 Knigworld – Free Online Library

Tess sat at the kitchen table and listened to the silence.A deadening sensation around – like a telephone ringing in an abandoned house. Cold and emptiness, echoing, although all around it is light and warm. But that’s how she felt. She understood that she needed to get up and go to Luke and Ellie, but she could not move. Her mind told her that what they were doing was right, that Stephen was right in saying that they had done the best they could. But then why the hell is she hurting so much ?!

Dressed, as always, in the style of a rich housewife, in a pale blue tracksuit, Inga stopped on the way to another fitness class and wondered what to do.She saw Stephen leave with the suitcase, which prompted her to talk to Tess.

Inga, among whose many virtues tact was never noticed, decided to please Tess with the story of that night last summer when she tried to seduce Stephen and was rejected. Doesn’t that prove he’s a good person?

Fortunately, the phone rang before she could retell that ill-fated episode.

– Tess, – she called, – Tess, this is your mother.

Tess hesitated.The last thing she wanted was to talk to her mother now. It would be better to be left alone to lick wounds without anyone’s advice, even if they are dictated by sympathy and love. But Inga made it pretty clear to Dymphna that Tess was at home. Reluctantly, she picked up the phone.

– Hello my dear, how are you all right?

“Yes,” Tess replied automatically. “It’s okay.

– Are you sure? – The warmth of Dimphna’s participation passed through the telephone line as clearly as if she was sitting next to her in the room.- You have a strange voice.

– Oh mom, everything is so terrible! – burst out from Tess. “The roof has been blown off, Luke may be on trial for shoplifting, and Stephen has just gone to Josephine’s.”

And for the first time, Dimphna was smart enough not to offer or advise anything.

– Tess, honey, do you want me to come?

And Tess, who usually kept her mother at a distance for years, said:

“That would be great. Can you really come over?

Luke did not look up from the computer when Tess looked over to him.He watched tensely at the flashing digital discharges on the monitor, struggling to feign indifference. But his bed was crumpled, and suddenly, somehow miraculously, Ted reappeared, an old bear who had not been seen in years.

– He’s gone, right? – Luke’s voice was devoid of any intonation, – Is it because of the sneakers?

Tess flew across the room and hugged him:

– No, no, not because of them.

But Luke’s thin body remained tense and did not respond in any way to Tess’s attempts to console him.As if his frame began to sag from the effort to seem impenetrable.

– Do you think he’ll be back this time, Mom? Luke’s eyes pleaded with him to tell him a comforting lie. – Or is he gone forever?

All Tess could do for him was to hug him, trying to hold back the tears.

– I don’t know, my dear. But whatever it is, he loves you, you know.

– But how could he? – Luke looked into her eyes – she saw eyelids reddened from tears. “There’s nothing to love me for.

Ellie sat all day with the door closed, not giving Tess even a chance to explain herself. When she finally left, she did not say a word and generally refused to talk about her father’s departure. She just put on a shocking outfit, put on her makeup and disappeared late into the night.

Stephen wrote tensely all Saturday. The work was exhausting both the body and the mind, but this is what he wanted. Concentrating on the painting, he felt almost no pain. But when he went to bed late at night, all the fear, doubts that he had done the right thing, fell on him with a monstrous press.

Tess drove to the Arndale Center after work Monday, thinking about what a depressing thing this is, big shopping malls. The shoe department was located in the center of the hall. He was literally packed with boxes of seductive sneakers. Tess looked at the prices. The most expensive were hundreds of pounds, nothing was cheaper than forty. No wonder they are being stolen.

Reminding herself that this is not quite the right approach to the situation, she went in and asked the manager.He was half her age, and he was clearly not attracted to the idea of ​​meeting her: she probably reminded him of his mother. Since his tiny office was used as a warehouse, they had to chat in the store, which only added to the awkwardness.

Tess began to explain that Luke had never done anything like this before. The manager nodded as if this fact was already known to him.

– As far as I understood from the words of the police, you had some problems with your husband.

“Yes,” she confirmed with surprise.She did not expect such attention from the police, apparently, they were trying to settle the case. – But now he finally left …

To her shame, for the first time after Stephen’s departure, Tess burst into tears and, having started, could no longer stop. The young manager stared at her in horror, customers hid their eyes, and Tess sobbed uncontrollably. The accumulated resentment, the feeling of one’s own failure, the tension from the need to cope alone – everything seemed to open up and gushed out of my eyes, mascara flowed, and a black stream formed on my cheeks.

The manager made a desperate hand gesture to one of the elderly saleswomen, who was gluing prices on a stepladder.

– Tell her I’ll do the best I can, Susan, give her some paper handkerchiefs, okay?

Susan handed Tess a pack of handkerchiefs and helped her up. At the store door, she turned to Mr. Watts — that was the name of the manager.

– I just walk her to the car. And the next time you are about to hit a woman, you better look for someone your age.- Tess, could not help smiling at the sight of the indignant Mr. Watts.

“That’s better,” said the indomitable Susan and hugged Tess one more time goodbye. “Don’t worry, I’ll press him until he closes the case with your son.”

Arriving at work, Hugo noticed that Stephen’s car was not parked in his usual place. Instead of standing at the front door, as always, he tried to hide it and drove it to the workshop. Curious … He walked a few more steps, buttoning his coat to protect himself from the piercing morning cold.How he hates February, the most depressed month of the year. It’s probably warm and cozy in the workshop now – the condensation on the huge windows hides what is happening inside as carefully as curtains or blinds. Only a small piece of glass was transparent. Whoever is in the workshop now cleared it to look outside. Feeling as if he was spying on something indecent, Hugo looked into the workshop.

There was nobody there. But in one corner there was a mattress and a sleeping bag.
