Recognising talents in local Indian film industry
The Malaysian Indian cinema scene has been flourishing in the last decade. This segment of the movie industry has seen numerous successes among Malaysian talents in both local and international arenas.
For the first time, these talents will be formally recognised at the first Malaysian Indian Cinema Awards 2016 (Mica 2016) in December.
The award is supported by 11 bodies including the National Film Development Corporation Board (Finas) and Tourism Malaysia.
Rafflesia The Pearl Centre is among the sponsors and will contribute RM70,000 worth of pearl accessories.
The first press conference in Kuala Lumpur to announce the award was attended by Malaysian Indian celebrities.
Mica 2016 founder and chief executive officer R.G. Naidu said the award was timely.
“The local artistes and those in the Malaysian Indian film industry should be recognised for their talents. Acknowledgement is necessary for the growth of the film industry.
“We have seen many talented movie producers, directors, actresses, actors, music composers and even from the technical aspect of film production in the past 10 years.

“We want to grow this industry as we see great potential in it.
“We have our own talents who have bagged awards in the international arena.
“However, they lack recognition within the country,” he said.
He added that Mica would be an annual affair.
Malaysian Indian cinema veteran Suhan Panchatcharam said the film industry had grown by leaps and bounds over the years.
“When I wanted to make movies in the 1980s, I could not find actresses, actors or music producers. It was expensive even to own a camera.
“Today, the technology has advanced and there are many opportunities. I see this as an encouraging factor for those who want to be active in the film industry.
“Awards such as Cima 2016 helps to grow the film industry,” he said.
Some 35 awards will be presented. They are Category Awards (21 awards), Short Film Awards (seven), Awards For Hosts (four) and Popular Awards (three).
The juries will comprise industry experts from Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and India.
The public can vote for the three awards in the Popular category, which consists of the Most Popular Movie, Most Popular Actor and Most Popular Actress.
Nine movies that have submitted their entries for Mica are Vera Vazhi Ille, Iravan, Kid, Agileswari, Pinnokom, Avana Nee, Maravan, Muthukumar Wanted and Nachatira.
Nominations for the Short Film Awards, is now open for works released in 2015. Submissions must be made by Oct 7.
These short films must be screened or published and available for public viewing.
Rafflesia The Pearl Centre director Winnie Sin said the company was excited to be associated with the award and looked forward to the event.
“Malaysian Indian artistes are popular among the viewers and we are familiar with some of them. Mica 2016 came just in time and we are excited to be part of it,” said Sin.
Mica 2016 sponsorship and marketing director Jasmin Michael said she had undergone her share of hardship and struggles in her 15-year acting career.
“Acknowledgement is a big deal for not just actors and actresses but all those working behind the scenes as well,” she said, adding that the awards would welcome sponsors.

All for a good cause
“Small gestures can create a big impact.”
True to these words, Krithigah Gunaprakas, popularly known as Krithigah Nair, took a small step towards a big cause.
The actress, known for her fashionable hairstyles and different hair colours, recently made the bold move to cut her lustrous hair and donated it to create wigs for cancer patients.
By cutting her locks, Krithigah wants to raise awareness on the importance of hair and also instil confidence among women cancer patients who are faced with hair loss while undergoing chemotherapy.
From sharing hair care tips on an Instagram page to sporting multiple styles, from soft curls to straight hair to purple highlights, Krithigah has always stood out in the crowd and she hopes her move will inspire others to follow in her footsteps.
The 26-year-old model, dancer and host, became an actress at the age of 16 after she was approached by a director to act as the female lead for a telemovie titled Nee. Since then, she has acted in films, drama series, short films and telemovies.
“Acting is my passion. It’s everything to me and I love acting more than anything else. Becoming an actress was definitely by chance and now, it has become my career,” said Kritigah.
What motivated you to cut your hair and donate it to cancer patients?
I have seen many pictures and videos of people suffering from cancer. It’s a major illness and it affects people so much, physically and mentally. I wanted to make them happy by sharing what I have.
Why do you feel cancer patients need hair or wigs?
During chemotherapy, it is known that hair loss or going bald are among the major changes they go through. I believe hair gives extra confidence to a person. When they lose their hair, it decreases their self-esteem. Hence, I decided to donate my hair.
Why do you want to raise awareness about donating hair for cancer patients?
Many people don’t know much about hair donation. Most of us, especially girls who have long hair, tend to cut our hair that will go to waste. By donating hair, cancer patients will be able to have a wig. It costs almost RM800 to make one natural hair wig. So, by doing this, we will be able to help them to gain their confidence again.
What inspired you to volunteer to distribute food for the homeless during the movement control order (MCO)?
The Covid-19 pandemic has been a life-changing experience for all of us. The poor became poorer. When I was pursuing my Bachelor’s degree at Segi College KL, I realised that there were homeless people sleeping on the streets every night.
During the first few days of the MCO, I thought about those homeless people and I felt that they may not have had any food due to the closure of shops. Meanwhile, no one was allowed to go outside. They need food to survive, too. That’s why I decided to join as
a volunteer to distribute food.
What are your future plans?
Currently, I have two drama series, one telemovie and a hosting programme. At the same time, I want to help more people with what I have and raise awareness among others. Let’s do our best for those who need help.
Deal sternly with companies indulging in manipulative practises: SC to SEBI | Markets News
New Delhi: The Supreme Court has asked SEBI to deal sternly with companies indulging in manipulative and deceptive practises to send a clear message that market abuse will not be tolerated in the country.
“SEBI, the market regulator, has to deal sternly with companies and their Directors indulging in manipulative and deceptive devices, insider trading etc. Or else they will be failing in their duty to promote orderly and healthy growth of the Securities market,” a bench of justices K S Radhakrishnan and Dipak Misra said.
The judgement assumes importance as it has come at a time when chit-fund companies and Sahara group are making headlines for illegally collecting money from people by promising attractive returns. It will give a boost to the market regulator to deal with these companies with iron hands.
“Message should go that our country will not tolerate market abuse and that we are governed by the Rule of Law. Fraud, deceit, artificiality, SEBI should ensure, have no place in the securities market of this country and market security is our motto,” it said.
People with power and money and in management of the companies, unfortunately often command more respect in society than the subscribers and investors in their companies, the court observed.
“Companies are thriving with investors’ contributions but they are a divided lot. SEBI has therefore, a duty to protect investors, individual and collective, against opportunistic behavior of Directors and Insiders of the listed companies so as to safeguard market’s integrity,” the bench said.
The bench also asked the media not to mislead the public in their forecast on the securities market.
“Print and Electronic Media have also a solemn duty not to mislead the public, who are present and prospective investors, in their forecast on the securities market.
Of course, genuine and honest opinion on market position of a company has to be welcomed. But a media projection on company’s position in the security market with a view to derive a benefit from a position in the securities would amount to market abuse, creating artificiality,” the bench said.
The apex court said that market abuse has now become a common practice in India and SEBI is duty bound to protect genuine investors.
“SEBI has the duty and obligation to protect ordinary genuine investors and it is empowered to do so under the SEBI Act so as to make security market a secure and safe place to carry on the business in securities,” the bench said.
The apex court said economic offences affect not only the country’s economic growth, but also hamper inflow of foreign investment by genuine investors and casts a slur on India’s securities market.
“…Market abuse has now become a common practice in the India’s security market and, if not properly curbed, the same would result in defeating the very object and purpose of SEBI Act which is intended to protect the interests of investors in securities and to promote the development of securities market,” the bench said.
The apex court passed the order while dismissing an appeal filed by one N Narayanan, the promoter as well as a whole time director of listed company M/s Pyramid Saimira Theatre Limited (PSTL), who had challenged SEBI’s order.
SEBI had, on July 28, 2011, slapped a penalty of Rs 50 lakh and restrained him for a period of two years from buying, selling or dealing in securities for making false disclosures to the stock exchange and for not maintaining certain books of accounts.
The company told stock exchanges on January 30, 2009 that it had entered into agreement with 802 theatres as on June 30, 2008. Out of 802 agreements, the company could show only 257 original agreements to SEBI officials which led it to conclude that the balance 545 agreements never existed.
The SEBI therefore held that the company had made a false corporate announcement to the effect that it had entered into agreement with 802 theatres, misleading the investing public.
Malaysian Indian Film Festival opens

For the first time, movie buffs in the city will be treated to Malaysian Tamil movies. A three-day Malaysian Indian Film Festival opened at Sree Devi preview theatre, T.Nagar, on Monday.
Unlike the Tamil film industry here, Malaysian Indian filmdom is small and has less patronage. Vijay, Chairman of Malaysian Indian Film Festival, said the Indian population in Malaysia is less than 10 per cent and Tamil-speaking population is much less. Only two Tamil movies were made between 1960 and 2000. After digitisation, the number of movies produced has gone up to six or seven a year.
Majority of movies were made on shoe-string budget except for a few like ‘Appalam’, which was produced by a Malaysian company. “Most theatres there prefer to screen Tamil films produced in India and only one or two Tamil movies made in Malaysia get released in theatres.
The major source of revenue is through DVD sales and there is no question of piracy,” he added.
Actors also promote their movies by installing stalls at Thaipoosam festival. Haanii Shivraj, who took up acting two years ago, juggles between anchoring shows in Tamil channels here and acting in Malaysian Tamil films, said: “I gave up my job as flight stewardess and became full-time actor. There is no divide between television and films and many actors opt for TV serials for more recognition.”
Of the 26 Malaysian Tamil movies that were released in theatres, 10 were nominated for screening in the festival. T.Mohan, Youth Wing Chairman, Malaysian Indian Congress, said the festival would provide a platform to recognise the talent of Malaysian technicians, improve the quality of movies and market films in India for more revenue.
Inaugurating the festival, Radha Ravi, general secretary, South Indian Artists’ Association, said the Malaysian Tamil film technicians must seek opportunities to expand the industry and must develop better interaction with the Tamil filmdom here. Vagai Chandrasekar, treasurer of South Indian Artists’ Association, suggested the Malaysian Tamil film industry share its technical equipment and cast actors from Tamil Nadu as the movies would have better business in both the countries.
E.Thangaraj, general secretary, Indo-Cine Appreciation Foundation, said the fete was organised at short notice to promote new talent in the industry. The movies screened at the festival would be adjudged by actor Charlie, Fatima Babu, actor-turned-director Manobala for awards in six categories. Actor Saranya Ponvannan also took part.

Woman who committed suicide with newborn daughter suffered from postpartum depression: Coroner
SINGAPORE: A 35-year-old woman who was found dead with her five-week-old daughter at the foot of a block last year had been suffering from postpartum depression and was unable to cope with caring for her baby, a coroner’s court has found.
In findings made available on Friday (May 28), State Coroner Kamala Ponnampalam ruled the woman’s death a deliberate suicide and the baby’s death as an unlawful killing perpetrated by her mother.
The coroner highlighted the “devastating effects of postpartum depression” and said it is important for new mothers and those around them to recognise and understand the enormity of stressors faced in such situations.
The court heard that the deceased woman was an account executive who was married with two daughters, the second of which was born on Sep 20 last year. The family lived in a flat on the 10th floor of a Housing Board block.
At about 5pm on Oct 29 last year, a passer-by at the block heard the sound of bamboo poles breaking followed by two loud thuds. He turned and saw the woman and the baby on the ground. He called the police.
Officers found the deceased woman lying on the ground next to the rubbish chute and the child nearby. Other items found near them include baby shorts, baby socks, a diaper and a pair of broken spectacles.
Investigations found that the mother and her child had fallen from the kitchen window in their home on the 10th floor. A stool was found at the same window, which was left wide open.
VOICE RECORDING LEFT TO HER HUSBAND
There were no signs of struggle in the home and a voice recording addressed to her husband was found on the woman’s phone.
In the recording, the woman said she should not have had the baby as she did not know how to take care of babies or her family. She said she was not a good mother and wife and had let the family down.
She asked her husband to take good care of their elder daughter and expressed regret that she would not be around to watch her grow up. She gave her husband the password to her bank account and ended by saying that she has no other way as her mind was not working.
Two knives were found on top of the toilet cistern in the master bedroom bathroom, with several bloodstains on the cistern and on one of the blades. The DNA on the bloodstains matched the woman’s.
Both mother and baby were certified to have died from multiple injuries consistent with a fall from height.
Medical reports indicated that the woman had gone to Gleneagles Hospital on Sep 20, 2020, to induce labour. She was diagnosed with maternal distress during labour and delivery and had an assisted vaginal delivery.
She was discharged well three days later with no obstetrical complication other than gestational diabetes. There was no symptom of postnatal depression and the woman did not mention any suicidal ideation.
The woman’s husband said they had their first child in 2016 and all was well then. His wife was healthy post-delivery in 2020, he said.
WHAT SHE TOLD HER HUSBAND
During the first month after the baby was born, a confinement nanny cared for the mother and child. About five days after the nanny left, the woman told her husband that she was stressed over having to take care of two children.
She said she had forgotten how to take care of children, and her husband reassured her, saying his mother would care for their elder daughter during the day. He told his wife that she did not have to do anything except rest and take care of the infant.
During her pregnancy, the woman had told her husband that she wanted to quit her job as she was feeling stressed. He told her that it was normal to feel stressed at work and that she should be thankful to have a job during the COVID-19 period.
After the birth, the woman again said she wanted to quit her job, but her husband told her to rest during her maternity leave and not think about work. She did not speak about quitting her job again and her husband thought that everything was alright, the court heard.
On Oct 29, 2020, the day began as usual according to the woman’s husband, and he left for work at about 7am without noticing anything unusual about his wife. He only found out what happened when the police called him.
ACCOUNTS FROM THE WOMAN’S FRIENDS
The deceased woman’s colleague said she had not complained of any difficulties in caring for her first child.
On the day of the woman’s death, the colleague sent her a text message asking if she was well. The woman replied that she was not feeling very good and she did not know how to take care of babies anymore.
She added that she did not know what her baby wanted, or why she was crying and could not sleep. Her colleague suspected that she could be suffering from postnatal depression and advised her to get help and employ a maid.
The woman replied that she was not inclined to spend money to hire a domestic helper, and did not express any intention to end her life.
Her childhood friend also testified in the coroner’s inquiry, saying that she did not notice anything unusual when she visited the family at their home.
She later heard that the deceased was feeling depressed, and when she asked her friend about it, the latter said she did not know how to take care of babies anymore.
A day before the suicide, the friend visited the deceased, who told her that her baby would cry whenever her elder daughter cried. The deceased said she did not know how to make her children stop crying, and her friend consoled her that it is normal for babies to cry and gave her some advice on how to care for infants.
She suggested that the woman employ a maid, and observed that the deceased did not seem to have much appetite and did not sleep well. She appeared depressed and kept repeating that she was lost and did not know how to care for her baby.
Police investigations found that the deceased was having difficulties in caring for the baby when she no longer had a nanny to assist her.
Her friends suspected she was suffering from postnatal depression and suggested that she employ a maid, but she was concerned about the cost. She also appeared anxious about coping with work after her maternity leave, and although her husband reassured her and made alternative care arrangements for their older child, the woman’s concerns and anxiety persisted.
RECOGNISE POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION: CORONER
The coroner said the woman’s death is “yet another stark reminder of the devastating effects of postpartum depression”.
“In acute cases such as (hers), thoughts of self-harm seem almost inevitable,” she said.
“The pressures from caring for a newborn can be immense. Coupled with the demands from managing the household and family while getting ready to return to work, may all seem insurmountable.”
She said it is important for new mothers as well as their spouses, family and friends to recognise and understand the enormity of the stressors.
“Often, they may not resolve on their own without the appropriate help, changes or adjustments, and medical therapy if required,” said the coroner.
“Most of all, a good support network and genuine encouragement from family and friends is essential to help the new mum cope.”
She gave her condolences to the family of the woman and her child for their loss.

90,000 Namaste West! How great Indian culture won the hearts of Europeans
Deputy Head of the Department of Public Policy at the Higher School of Economics Sanjay Kumar Rajhans was born and raised in India, but has been living and working in the post-Soviet space for more than ten years.In an interview with Kultura, he discusses how it happened that Indian culture, which for millennia was a “thing in itself”, has penetrated so deeply into all corners of the planet over the past hundred years – from the West, where yoga, meditation and vegetarianism have become almost mainstream, to Africa , The Middle East and Central Asia, who love Bollywood films no less than Hollywood.
– Today, various aspects of Indian culture are extremely popular all over the world. When and how did she manage to win such deep sympathy, and first of all in the Western countries?
– Serious acquaintance with India and its exploration began during the colonization by the British – in the late 18th – early 19th centuries.Before that, Europeans in India were mainly interested only in spices: since the time of the Roman Empire, Europe maintained trade relations with the southern part of Hindustan, for example, with Kerala, and some other principalities with access to the sea, such as Gujarat in the west. But these relations were primarily economic. So if you do not recall the campaigns of Alexander the Great in the northern part of India 2300 years ago, then we can say that cultural interaction began only during colonization by the Europeans: little by little with the advent of the Portuguese and French, and actively – later, with the arrival of the British.
And then a huge number of highly educated people came to India, most of whom were sent by the English crown to manage the colony. They began to research, analyze, compare and were amazed at the richness of the unfamiliar ancient culture that was revealed to them. It turned out that by colonizing India one can get not only material values, but also spiritual and intellectual ones. India began to be called “the jewel in the crown of England.” Alas, this was paradoxically combined with the fact that the British did not treat the Indians as equals.But at the same time, the British could not ignore the great Indian heritage, as the European colonialists did, neglecting the cultures of the peoples of Africa, Latin and North America.
Indologists such as William Jones, Percy Brown and Max Müller appeared who studied ancient languages, including Sanskrit, and immersed themselves deeply in the culture and philosophy of India. Scholars wrote and published books, and Europe learned more and more about India. Goethe was delighted to read in the English translation of the Indian playwright Kalidasa, who lived in the 4th century.It is believed that “Faust” was written under the influence of one of the most famous plays of Kalidasa – “Shakuntala”.
The Royal Asiatic Society, founded in London in 1823 and engaged in the study and translation from ancient languages into English, discovered amazing things: the level of science – mathematics, medicine, chemistry, astronomy, political science – in India was incredibly high even before the birth of Christ and in the first centuries of our era. That the Indian philosopher Chanakya, teacher and adviser to Raja Chandragupta Maurya, who became thanks to him a great conqueror and the first emperor of India, in his writings dated to the 4th century BC.e., appears to be such a deep and skillful politician that after him Machiavelli may seem like a schoolboy. That Aryabhata, an outstanding mathematician and astronomer, in the 5th century calculated the diameter of the Earth with considerable accuracy, and that the planets move around the Sun, Indian science already knew for sure by the 5th-6th centuries, but most likely earlier.
After India gained independence in 1947, the cultural influence of India began to spread with extraordinary rapidity. India had a lot to tell and share, and the world was eager to listen and receive.
Was India’s use of soft power a political challenge?
– No, there were no political tasks. If the advancement of India with the help of “soft power” has become a concern of the state to some extent, then only in the last couple of decades. Only after our philosophy, yoga, music, cuisine gained immense popularity in the world, politicians began to think about how to take advantage of the fruits of cultural influence.
– In his autobiography, the famous Indian guru of the 20th century Yogananda tells how his teacher instructed him to go to America, preach there, attracting thousands and millions of people.
– His guru Sri Yukteswar was not associated with the state. This was not politics. America even then, at the beginning of the 20th century, was one of the most influential countries, and Yogananda’s mentor apparently thought that if such a strong, wildly energetic country received knowledge, it would become calmer, it would better understand other cultures – and the world would become more harmonious. The role of another guru Swami Vivekananda is also very great: in 1893 he came to the World Congress of Religions in Chicago, spoke there as a representative of Hinduism and made a great impression on Harvard professors and other great intellectuals and theosophists.For the first time, the world heard the voice of an enlightened, spiritually rich India.
Of course, no one from the state sent Vivekananda to speak in the United States, India was then ruled by the British and was an English colony. The same applies to the travel of Yogananda and other gurus: Krishnamurti, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Prabhupada, Osho, Nirmala Devi. They all drove out of an inner spiritual need, following their mission. They wanted to share their wisdom, their vision with the whole world, tell what Indian philosophy is and what their own teaching is.Each represented his own spiritual school and talked about something of his own, while relying on the same Vedic roots – Hindu Upanishads, Buddhism. And what they talked about was fundamentally different from what Western philosophy said, which grew up on the basis of Judaism and Christianity.
Starting from the 60s of the last century, one after another great gurus began to come to America and travel the world, they gathered followers in different countries – sometimes ten thousand, sometimes one hundred, and some of the gurus had half a million disciples …A huge crowd of people around the world. And they all lived in the Indian style: their clothes, the holidays that they celebrated, what they ate … So many became vegetarians following their mentors, and the origins of organic nutrition, which is now so widespread in the world, also partly need to be sought. here. Yoga and meditation have become a part of their lives. They began to put statuettes of Ganesha, Shiva and Buddha in their homes. India has infiltrated their living rooms, their kitchens and even bedrooms as people began to take an interest in Tantra and Kama Sutra… India and its culture, like oxygen, has filled all possible places.
Gurus encouraged people to take backpacks and go to India, study meditation, visit ancient temples, search for themselves. Great yoga teachers have also traveled teaching. This is Ayangar and Pattabhi Jois in the first place. A huge number of people began to come to India to take lessons from them and study in the schools they founded. Yoga studios started to open in all countries …
This is a chain where one clings to another: someone became interested in cuisine, and then began to read philosophy, someone first took up yoga, then began to listen to classical Indian music, and then decided to become a vegetarian… And all these paths lead to India.
And then the politicians in India realized – wow! We are sitting on a gold mine! And they began to organize cultural centers, festivals around the world to help these countries love India and Indians more, primarily in Western countries. Because the Western world has been the most developed in the last 200 years, which means it has a maximum of tools, including the media, to promote its own values and make the rest of the world put them high.
– Western “gurus” also contributed to the interest in India, for example, the Beatles in the late 60s lived for a long time in the city of Rishikesh with their spiritual teacher.
– The Beatles came to India to visit Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, lived in his ashram for several weeks and kept in touch with him in the future. The musicians wrote White album under the impression of this trip, more than a dozen compositions. Then, in the late 60s, it was a big story: The Beatles, the most famous music group in the world – in India! Of course, this inspired many, and I think not only Beatles fans, to go there.
Earlier, the famous country musician Alan Ginsburg was also fascinated by our culture. He, like the Beatles, became the window through which a huge number of foreigners saw India. And soon Goa became the “promised land” for hippies.
– Why did they go to Indian Goa? This is not the only place on the planet where you can safely sing, dance, smoke weed and love the whole world?
– There are several reasons. To begin with, hippies are the first post-war generation.The twentieth century turned out to be turbulent: World War I, World War II, then the Cold War and the Vietnam War. Society is deathly tired of wars. The hippie culture was a combination of flight from military service, military action, and protest against US expansion into Vietnam and other countries. The younger generation has fallen victim to an existential crisis. People wanted to believe in the world. Not only hippies, many in the USA, Canada and other Western countries have become pacifists.
And at the very time when the world was divided into two camps, involved in the Cold War between the USA and the USSR, India was the political leader among the third world countries and stood on the sidelines of this confrontation.The glory of Gandhi and Buddha surrounded her, India was the personification of peace and tranquility.
India is the birthplace of a number of religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, which then spread to vast territories: Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand, China … Even those who came to Goa for entertainment, looking around, saw ancient temples, ascetics and sages, meditating for hours or even weeks under a tree, yogis performing asanas; the air was filled with questions and answers to questions: who am I, why am I here, how am I connected with others and with the entire universe? And the Europeans understood how much they can learn, how they can change their inner world.
India presents a world with non-Western thinking, unusual, and therefore mysterious and attractive for Europeans. Of course, China and Islamic countries are no less exotic and dissimilar, but unlike them, India is a democratic country that appeals to Europeans. And in India there were no conflicts with Christianity, which has been present on its territory for two thousand years, peacefully coexisting with other religions.
In addition, Europeans found it very comfortable to come to India already in the middle of the last century, since broad layers of the middle class spoke English to one degree or another – the result of colonization.Even ancient Sanskrit and modern Hindi linguistically belong to the same Indo-European group of languages, so it can be said that India and Europe are cousins who have not communicated for a huge number of years.
– What about the non-Western world?
– Here it is necessary to say about Indian cinema. Films created by the giant machine of the Indian film industry, Bollywood (about a thousand films a year are produced throughout India, most of them are Bombay Bollywood), are incredibly popular in African countries, especially in Nigeria, but apart from it, in Morocco and Egypt, as well as in Afghanistan, Iran and even Pakistan, despite the fact that Pakistan’s relations with India are tense.In the Soviet Union, several generations grew up with a warm attitude towards Indian cinema, and now residents of post-Soviet Central Asia are ardent admirers of it.
– The fact that following strict religious principles, the Islamic world loves Bollywood cinema, while leaving the spiritual aspect of Indian culture overboard, is understandable. But why does Indian philosophy so catch the Europeans, who, it would seem, should be closer to Aurelius Augustine, Hegel and Jung?
– I am not a European and I cannot answer that a Western person is so attracted to Indian philosophy.I can only guess.
People have always strived for something distant and mysterious. This is what we call the attraction of the unknown. A person needs some kind of alter ego, an alternative, when not everything is naturally satisfied in your own, familiar cultural paradigm. As I said, it is quite difficult for a European to choose the culture of China or Arab countries in this capacity. India in this sense is an easy, pleasant and fascinating choice with its exoticism.
I will say a provocative thing: in the subconsciousness of Europeans, who were pagans before Christianity came, this memory has been living for more than 2000 years, as the monuments of Greco-Roman civilization live in their cultural field. And so a Western man meets with the manifestation of his deep pagan subconsciousness, looking in the mirror of Indian civilization: reading the great epics Mahabharata and Ramayana, learning about the numerous gods and heroes who fall in love, create families, fight for justice, seek enlightenment.
In addition, the culture of India is amazingly versatile: you can find anything in it in the widest variety. This can be seen in the example of Indian cuisine: although vegetarianism in India is mainstream, there is so much in it! Suffice it to say that the world’s most popular Indian dish is chicken carry, chicken in Indian spices, or biryani (biryani), which can be cooked with different types of grilled meat or fish.
– Is it the same with spiritual food?
– Yes, you will see the same diversity from the point of view of philosophy, teachings, spiritual practices.Whichever way of life you choose – from hedonism to strict asceticism – you will find consonant philosophical ideas, the roots of which go back millennia.
Multiculturalism, which began to develop on a rather superficial level in the West during the postmodern era in the 1960s, has ancient roots and a much deeper understanding in ancient Indian philosophy. The principles of non-violence and tolerance, the awareness of the whole world as a single organism are in the Rig Veda, one of the most ancient sacred texts, and the Upanishads.It says: Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, which in Sanskrit means: the whole earth is one family. From this it follows that there are no others in the world, no strangers, you have to love the whole world, and this is a completely different understanding than loving only one of your own nation. There are key concepts in Indian philosophy – Atma is one immortal soul, which is born in different bodies, but itself remains unchanged, and Paramatma is a single, cosmic soul of the whole world. Atma seeks to merge with Paramatma, this is its highest goal. Such a merger is possible only with a deep inner awareness that all souls, all living beings are interconnected and form a single whole, like drops of water make up an ocean.
From time immemorial in India they worshiped the sun, wind, river, mountains, trees, animals, all living beings, honoring them. And this worship, of course, had no ethnic boundaries, because a tree or a mountain has no nationality. Hence the idea of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam: Nature, Earth is our mother, society consists not only of people, and this world exists not only for them. The sense of respect that comes from the Indian understanding of the structure of the world encompasses not only humanity, it encompasses everything that exists.
At the same time, individualism is also rooted in Indian culture, otherwise it would not have so many gods and a variety of philosophical trends. But our individualism does not seek to infringe upon another person, to belittle or reject, which, it seems to me, is largely characteristic of Western individualism. In the Western model of the world, each person seems to be sitting on his own island, separated from the others. And in Hinduism, each person is a bead that is connected with many other beads to form a beautiful garland.Everything is interconnected, everything is connected.
The flourishing of environmentalism as a new type of thinking, including what Greta Thunberg has said over the past couple of years, in tune with what Gandhi said almost a hundred years ago: “The world has enough for everyone’s need, but not everyone’s greed.” everyone, but not to satisfy everyone’s greed).
Thus, Indian culture has had a significant impact on the world for the last 100-150 years. As soon as India became independent, it began to grow rapidly.When India in 2014 proposed to the UN to celebrate World Yoga Day on June 21, it was supported by 175 countries – no other proposal had been approved there so unanimously before. And October 2, the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, was made the World Day of Nonviolence, recognizing it as a global symbol of peace.
If you answer the question – why is Indian culture so attractive, I will answer that it is unusually rich, but at the same time it has modesty, it does not have pride in its greatness, it accepts it calmly, with humility, and it is open and with joy shares his knowledge and bright colors.
The material was published in No. 10 of the newspaper “Culture” dated October 29, 2020 within the theme of the issue “Rating of world cultures”.
90,000 Malaysia and India are among the top five countries popular with medical tourists
VLADIVOSTOK, December 8, PrimaMedia. Malaysia and India are among the top five countries popular with medical tourists. According to research by the consulting firm McKinsey & Company, the annual turnover of the global medical tourism will grow from $ 40 billion to $ 100 billion.in 2012, according to TOURISM-RIVIEW.
Based on research by Hotel Resort Insider, the travel e-book has published five countries popular with medical tourists. Malaysia and India are ranked 3rd and 5th respectively.
Panama is number one, providing relatively inexpensive medical care. Operations in Panama are much more affordable than in the United States, with a difference of 40 – 70%, although more expensive than in Southeast Asia.
Brazil is in second place. In recent years, it has become a popular destination for cosmetic surgeries.
Third – Malaysia. The medical industry in Malaysia has made a significant leap forward in its development over the past decade. The range of medical services in the country is quite wide and includes, for example, cosmetic surgery, cardiovascular surgery, dental care, and all at significantly lower prices than in the United States. Medical investors and tourists are attracted to Malaysia by economic growth, high literacy rates and political stability.A wide network of clinics and hospitals significantly supports the country’s economic growth.
Costa Rica ranks fourth. It has become a widely recognized center for providing quality healthcare to patients, primarily from North America. The main secrets of success are high quality at affordable prices.
India closes the top five. According to a study of Indian medical tourism by the National Center for Policy Analysis, medical tourism in India is characterized by high quality and low cost.Most clinics in India are certified according to International Standards. Indian centers use high-end medical technology and highly qualified doctors.
90,000 The third ecological swim “For Clean Baikal” took place in the Slyudyansky District
Already the third ecological swim “For Clean Baikal” at a distance of 115.6 km took place in the Slyudyansk region. Swimmers, representing a wide variety of Russian regions, started on August 5 in the village of Port Baikal and finished on the night of August 8 in the town of Slyudyanka.The intermediate point of the route is Baikalsk, alarmingly famous for its now closed pulp and paper mill and its dangerous legacy in the form of millions of tons of unused waste.
The swim was organized by the all-Russian public organization “Russian Winter Swimming Federation”, the regional branch of the Russian ecological party “Greens”, the public organization “Olympic Council of Primorsky Krai”, the regional branch of the Russian Winter Swimming Federation in the Primorsky Territory “Orca DV”.The athletes were supported by the Federal State Unitary Enterprise Federal Ecological Operator and Port Vera LLC.
The weekly “Arguments of the Week” is a permanent information partner of the swim “For Clean Baikal”. It was the founder of the publishing house, Vyacheslav Timoshenko, who two years ago, guided by the “old-fashioned” rule “If you want to change something, start doing it yourself,” realized his plan and swam across Lake Baikal with his comrades. Thus, I decided to draw attention to the problems of the unique reservoir.
Vyacheslav Timoshenko – an experienced swimmer, member of the executive committee of the All-Russian Sambo Federation, founder of the sports and patriotic club “Slava”. For several years he was closely interested in environmental problems, studied the situation. “I am not indifferent to what happens where I see, I am not indifferent to what surrounds me. Serious problems on Lake Baikal did not leave anyone indifferent, ”Vyacheslav explains sincerely.
In 2019, his comrades – Zaur Zakrailov from Grozny and a Kerch guy Yevgeny Semenyaka – joined him in the marathon swim “For Clean Baikal”.Together, three daredevils covered a distance of 45 km. It took them about a day. Athletes from the village of Listvyanka, Irkutsk Region, started, finished in Vydrino, already on the Buryat side of the lake. Then we swam in wetsuits, tried it out, felt the character, mood and weather of Lake Baikal.
A year later, five people took part in the second ecological swim. True, Vyacheslav Tymoshenko himself, for personal reasons, could not be on this list. Already from Vydrino to Listvyanka, experienced Russian winter swimming masters set off by swimming: Andrey Bugay, Oleg Dokuchaev, Pavel Komarov, Evgeny Zozulya and the only woman – world champion in winter swimming Maria Chizhova from Vladivostok.The task was made more difficult – the participants did not use insulation suits. The length of the route was 48.5 kilometers, the duration was almost 115 and a half hours. And this is at a water temperature from +15 to +5 degrees. The participants were in the water from 30 minutes to an hour, replacing each other. In the icy water, of course, it was very difficult. They said: when 8 km were left to the coast and a counter current appeared, they invested in every stroke, in every movement. But the complexity of the task of the desire to repeat the swim in 2021 did not discourage the enthusiasts.Moreover, the team of participants in the environmental-sports action has increased, and the distance has significantly lengthened.
The main goal remains the same: to draw attention to the ecological problems of the water resources of Lake Baikal, the state of the water, air and coastal areas, the Irkutsk region and Russia as a whole – so if in the official wording.
During the swim “For Clean Baikal”, the monitoring of the cleanliness of the environment and water of Lake Baikal and its problem areas in the area of the city of Baikalsk was carried out.Sports motivation, of course, was, but still another internal message dominated.
“These people from different regions who supported our idea have no purpose to prove something to someone or to themselves,” explained Vyacheslav Tymoshenko. – They swam across the English Channel, the Bering Strait and much more. It was important for the participants of the swim to make their contribution to such an important matter – the preservation and protection of Lake Baikal ”.
“Baikal received us.” Warmly received
One of the participants, an international master of sports, President of the Olympic Council of the Primorsky Territory and executive director of the Russian Winter Swimming Federation, Oleg Dokuchaev, spoke about how the swim was organized and what kind of weather “surprise” awaited the athletes in the first hours of the second stage.
From Port Baikal to the city of Baikalsk at the first stage we covered 76 km. Throughout the swim “For Clean Baikal”, the swimmers were accompanied by ships and boats of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia in the Irkutsk Region, the Federal State Institution “Baikal PSO of the Ministry of Emergencies of the Russian Federation”.
The team of athletes was based on a motor ship. It was decided: to get used to the water of Lake Baikal, first swim for 20 minutes, then the duration of stay in the water for one shift was 30 minutes. Athletes swam in a non-stop, round-the-clock mode, replacing each other every half hour.The total time to cover the distance of 76 km was just over 25 hours. At the first stage of the swim, each swimmer had 6–7 shifts, that is, entries into the water.
The water at the starting point made me happy: +11.2 degrees is no longer +5, as in 2020. Throughout the entire distance, the water temperature varied from + 11.2 to 18.2 degrees.
“Basically, throughout the entire distance the average temperature was + 14 degrees. The coldest water indicators were recorded at the launch site, in the Port of Baikal.The highest temperature indicators of water were recorded at night in the middle of Lake Baikal, ”the records of Oleg Dokuchaev testify, who clearly recorded everything.
Having reached Baikalsk, the athletes visited the territory of the Baikal PPM.
BPPM: real threat and real plans
Recall that at the end of 2020, the only contractor for the preparation of the project and the elimination of the accumulated harm to the environment, formed in the course of the activities of the open joint-stock company “Baikal Pulp and Paper Mill” (5.67 million cubic meters).m) was determined by the Federal State Unitary Enterprise “Federal Environmental Operator”.
It so happened that the General Director of the Federal State Unitary Enterprise “Federal Ecological Operator” Konstantin Sidenko is also the president of the public organization “Russian Winter Swimming Federation”, an admiral. This time he headed the organizing committee of the swim “For Clean Baikal”.
“This swim is symbolic,” stressed Konstantin Sidenko. – Its participants flew from different cities of the country not to win competitions, but to emphasize the importance of Lake Baikal for the whole world.They also got acquainted with the project of reclamation of the former BPPM, which is now being implemented within the framework of the national project “Ecology”. Baikal is the pearl of Siberia, and it must be protected ”.
Directly at the BPPM site, the participants of the environmental action were able to see with their own eyes the current state of affairs, the level of polluted waters in the maps – waste accumulators.
“It got scary. God forbid some natural disasters – a chemical swamp will pour into the purest lake, – Vyacheslav Timoshenko is concerned.”It will be a catastrophe on a planetary scale.” Protecting maps from streams, erecting barriers is a sensible proposal of environmentalists.
Not without excitement, but from the heart
The start of the second stage of the swim – from Baikalsk to Slyudyanka, was given on August 7 at 03.30. The swimmers swam. Made three changes of swimmers – and had to pause: the weather worsened – a strong headwind rose, the waves reached three meters.
Fortunately, the storm, contrary to pessimistic forecasts, died down on the same day.And closer to four o’clock in the afternoon, the swim resumed from the place of its suspension.
At the second stage, it took 13 hours 22 minutes to cover the distance of 39.6 km, 2-3 changes per swimmer. And the water temperature was again high, an average of +14 degrees.
In general, the athletes finished comfortably in Slyudyanka, albeit at night, at 01.45. Therefore, the ceremonies had to be canceled.
“Although the city and personally the mayor in the area of the local recreation park were preparing to celebrate the participants of the swim“ For Clean Baikal ”, – said Stella Kakora, Deputy Head of the Slyudyansk City Center for Sports, Culture and Leisure.- The inhabitants of the Baikal territories are grateful to everyone who helps us draw attention to our natural sites and protect them. Slyudyanka is a sympathetic city. Let me remind you that we help to hold a number of large-scale sporting events, among them – the famous international Baikal mountaineering marathon (BAM), namely a race, a high-speed ascent to the Chersky peak ”.
Even without official ceremony, everything worked out – the swimmers are happy.
“Because everything that we have done comes from the heart, from the soul,” Vyacheslav Tymoshenko is sure.- We did not set ourselves the task of conquering something. They just sincerely burned with the idea, worried about the situation. I believe that it is important to be able to take responsibility not only for your family, your home. The principle “my house is on the edge” does not bode well. If you see, understand that trouble is coming, you must prevent it – I think so. And the team that is with me has the same attitude to everything. I think this is not our last swim and the number of participants in the action “For Clean Baikal” will only expand. I hope not – I believe, I know that we will be heard.People realize … “
And to those who do not realize, according to Vyacheslav Tymoshenko, it would be right to introduce strict laws. If necessary, restrict access to unique territories. As an example, the activist cited Malaysia, where the fresh water of the local lake is protected no less than the perimeter of the most secret objects …
The athletes express their gratitude to the team of the “Flagman of Baikal” motor ship and the “Peleduy” boat, which hosted them, where a group of photojournalists and videographers was based.

“Where are we going, people?”
Vyacheslav Timoshenko, member of the executive committee of the All-Russian Sambo Federation, founder of the sports and patriotic club “Slava”, chairman of the board of directors of the publishing house “Argumenty Nedeli” :
“Humanity is moving somewhere in the wrong direction.Many people have values in the wrong plane – cars, yachts, other material attributes … But, in my opinion, the highest value is our nature. In fact, we can do without a lot of things. But you can’t survive without air and clean water. In the meantime, I see that the priorities are different. People spit on the really important, hoping that “and so it will come off.” But nature, Baikal is a living organism, and it is very important not to disturb the harmony in it ”.
Evgeny Kolmakov, Chairman of the Irkutsk Regional Branch of the Russian Ecological Party “Green” :
“I would draw the following analogy: Baikal is a serious, adult person who has a family, friends, and an environment.He radiates goodness. At the same time, he carries a mass of diseases accumulated over the years, with age. Some chronic diseases do not interfere too much with his life, the body has adapted to them. Like any other water area in the world, Baikal, obviously, experiences human impact: garbage on the shores, household wastewater, pollution from ships … All this has been mentioned more than once. But the powerful ecosystem of Lake Baikal has somehow adapted to recycle it. However, the waste of the BPPM is a much more serious threat. If they find themselves in the lake at the same time, it will be comparable to a stroke for a person.There are two scenarios in this case: either he is an invalid, around whom everyone who used to take advantage of his kindness and care must now fuss and heal, or he is a complete dead man … And no, I’m not an alarmist. But remember the tsunami in the Pacific Ocean. It seemed that the prudent Japanese should know how to neutralize the threat at the atomic Fukushima. But didn’t you count on a tsunami? And mudflows in our region, from the Khamar-Daban hills, can be predicted with much greater probability. Science explains this to us with reason.And what has been done? .. “
Evgeny Zozulya, Executive Director of the Regional Branch of the Russian Winter Swimming Federation in the Primorsky Territory “Killer Whale DV” :
“I am taking part in the swim“ For Clean Baikal ”for the second time. I immediately agreed, as I received the offer. And, you know, we are not conquering Baikal – it is Baikal that conquered the hearts of swimmers. The clear water surprised me. Nowhere, even in swimming pools, I have not met such. The standard for me has always been the water near the remote islands of Primorye.Now here! The feeling is indescribable. And the fact that it is cold, that Baikal is unpredictable is even more interesting. Yesterday + 17 … Before that + 5 … Let’s swim!
As for the environmental aspect, I myself saw that there is movement in solving the BPPM problem. There are already operating installations at the site. This made me happy. It is too early to talk about complete neutralization of risks. We are at the beginning of the road, but at least we have begun to deal with the problem.
And once again I will remind everyone: caring for the environment begins with personal space, with you specifically.It’s not difficult: you go on a picnic – clean up the trash after you. I urge everyone to bring up loved ones by their own example, especially children.
