Indian women win Gold! Women's 4x400m relay race in India: Commonwealth Games
 
01:49
Indian wins women's 4x400m relay race during Common Wealth Games in India. The 2010 Commonwealth Games, officially known as the XIX Commonwealth Games, were held in Delhi, India, from 3 to 14 October 2010. A total of 6,081 athletes from 71 Commonwealth nations and dependencies competed in 21 sports and 272 events, making it the largest Commonwealth Games to date. It was also the largest international multi-sport event to be staged in Delhi and India, eclipsing the Asian Games in 1951 and 1982. The opening and closing ceremonies were held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, the main stadium of the event. It was the first time that the Commonwealth Games were held in India and the second time it was held in Asia after Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 1998. This also marked the first time a Commonwealth Republic hosted the games. The official mascot of the Games was Shera and the official song of the Games, "Jiyo Utho Bado Jeeto", was composed by celebrated Indian musician A.R. Rahman. Preparation for the Games received widespread international media attention, with criticism being levelled against the organisers for the slow pace of work, as well as issues related to security and hygiene. However, all member nations of the Commonwealth of Nations participated in the event, except Fiji, which is suspended from the Commonwealth, and Tokelau, which didn't send a team, in spite of threats of boycotts and athlete withdrawals. The internationally acclaimed opening ceremony improved the image of the Games, and dispelled negative notions surrounding them, with many observers remarking that they began on an apprehensive note, but were an exceptional experience with a largely positive ending. The President of the International Olympic Committee, Jacques Rogge, said that India had made a good foundation for a future Olympics bid, which was reiterated by the Australian Ministry of Sports. Commonwealth games Federation chief Mike Fennell stated that "Delhi delivered a fantastic Games". Some observers accused sections of the media of bias, unfair expectations, and negative reporting. The final medal tally was led by Australia. The host nation India achieved its best performance ever at the Games, finishing second overall.

Foreigners take part in Raja mirchi eating competition -Hornbill Festival 2012 - Part 1
 
04:42
The famous Naga chilly or Raja mirchi eating competition during the Hornbill Festival '12 held at Naga Heritage Village, Kisama in Kohima. See tourists from Liverpool (England), Australia and Myanmar participating in this fun and daring challenge of eating the hottest chilly in the world. "The Hornbill festival held in the first week of December shows that with its stunning natural beauty and great cultural traditions, Nagaland can offer a rich fare to tourists. NAGALAND, with its diverse tribal culture, is a land of festivals. A narrow strip of mountainous territory with rugged hills, emerald valleys, sparkling streams and a rich variety of flora and fauna, the 16th State of the Indian Union has salubrious climate throughout the year. It is bounded by Assam in the west, Myanmar in the east, Arunachal Pradesh in the north and Manipur in the south. Sometimes referred to as the `Switzerland of the East', Nagaland represents unimaginable beauty, moulded perfectly for a breathtaking experience. For the adventurous, the State is an ideal place for trekking and jungle camping and offers limitless possibilities for exploring its lush sub-tropical rainforests, which are a treasure trove of medicinal plants. The 20-lakh-strong Naga people, by nature, are fun lovers, and life in Nagaland is one long festival. Nagas are admired for their rich repertory of folk dances and songs. In spite of the tremendous advance of modernity into their lives, the Naga people have a penchant for vibrant dances and songs praising the brave deeds of ancient warriors and folk heroes, love songs that immoralise tragic love stories, gospel songs and folk tunes. Festivals are celebrated by the various tribes year around; during festivals villages become most lively. Most of the dances have a robust rhythm. Festivals mainly revolve around agriculture, it being the mainstay of the economy. Over 85 per cent of the population of Nagaland is directly dependent on agriculture and lives in the 1,000-odd villages situated on hilltops or slopes overlooking verdant valleys. In this blissful setting, Nagas enjoy nature with a rare gusto that visitors to the State look at with awe and admiration. In most of these places agriculture consists of a single crop. Although some religious and spiritual sentiments are inter-woven into secular rites and rituals, the predominant theme of the festivals is the offering of prayers to a supreme being, which has different names in different Naga dialects. At these festivals, the gods are propitiated with sacrifices by the head of the village, for a bountiful harvest, either before sowing or on the eve of the harvest. In fact, agricultural work and religion are so interwoven in Naga society that it is difficult to describe the festivals independent of the processes of agriculture. Some of the important festivals celebrated by the tribes are Sekrenyi by the Angamis in February, Moatsu by the Aos in May, Tsukhenyie by the Chakhesangs in January, Aoling by the Konyaks in April, Mimkut by the Kukis in January, Bushu by the Kacharis in January, Tuluni by the Sumis in July, Nyaknylum by the Changs in July, Tokhu Emong by the Lothas in November and Yemshe by the Pochurys in October. For encouraging inter-tribal cultural interaction and bringing together the festivals of the various tribes under one umbrella, the Government of Nagaland has evolved a festival called the Hornbill festival, where one can see a melange of Naga cultural displays at one place. Organised by the State Directorate of Tourism every year between December 1 and 5 in Kohima since 2000, the festival is intended to revive, protect and preserve the richness and uniqueness of the Naga heritage and attract tourists. The festival, in a way, is also a tribute to the hornbill, a bird most admired by the Naga people for its qualities of alertness and grandeur. This majestic bird is linked closely with the social and cultural life of the people, as is evident in tribal folklores, dances and songs. The awe and admiration for the bird is symbolically displayed on almost all traditional tribal headgears worn during festivities."

Strangest friendship EVER! Dog carries monkey friend around for life!
 
02:27
Yet another crazy sight on the streets of Delhi... A stranger sight you surely never saw! This stray street dog in India has befriended a Rhesus Macaque (which seems to behave more like a parasite, than a friend). There is nothing symbiotic about this strange relationship. The dog carries the monkey friend around on its back and even stops to get it food and water... Now what do you have to say to this? Only in India, surely! We agree that this is not ideal behaviour and the monkey is taking advantage of the dog. Our cameraman passes the dog daily as he gets to office, and feeds him. So the dog is well looked after. The monkey, however, cannot be got rid of, somehow, or the dog doesn't want to get rid of him. Strange situation indeed!

The traditional process of hand-made shoe making! Hand-made pure leather boots being made from scratch at the famous shoe-maker of Landour bazaar, Mussoorie, Uttarakhand, India. Write to us to get your own pair! Focus on the audio comprising of natural sounds, as you see the process unfurl! Shoemaking is the process of making footwear. Originally, shoes were made one at a time by hand. Traditional handicraft shoemaking has now been largely superseded in volume of shoes produced by industrial mass production of footwear, but not necessarily in quality, attention to detail, or craftsmanship. Shoemakers or cordwainers (cobblers being, historically, those who repair shoes) may produce a range of footwear items, including shoes, boots, sandals, clogs and moccasins. Such items are generally made of leather, wood, rubber, plastic, jute or other plant material, and often consist of multiple parts for better durability of the sole, stitched to a leather upper.

03:23
CISF Dog Squad performs at 47th Raising Day of CISF in Delhi. They are trained not to eat anything by unknown person during their service as it may harm their senses and make them unconscious. The function was hosted by CISF Director General Surender Singh at its base here and a host of dignitaries including Vice President Hamid Ansari, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, the two Ministers of State in the Home Ministry, Kiren Rijiju and Haribhai Chaudhary and MoS for Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore were present. The 1.43-lakh personnel strong Central Industrial Security Force was raised in 1969 and is tasked with the security of major civil airports, the Delhi Metro apart from rendering a variety of duties in the internal security domain. The CISF came into existence in 1969 with a modest beginning, having three battalions, to provide integrated security cover to the Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) which, in those years, occupied the “commanding heights” of the economy. In a span of four decades, the Force has grown several folds to reach one lakh forty one thousand seven hundred and thirty five personnel today. With globalization and liberalization of the economy, CISF is no longer a PSU-centric organization. Instead, it has become a premier multi-skilled security agency of the country, mandated to provide security to major critical infrastructure installations of the country in diverse areas. CISF is currently providing security cover to nuclear installations, space establishments, airports, seaports, power plants, sensitive Government buildings and ever heritage monuments. Among the important responsibilities recently entrusted to the CISF are the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, VIP Security, Disaster Management and establishment of a Formed Police Unit (FPU) of the UN at Haiti.

04:56
Rock band from Sikkim 'Nightmares' perform during the Hornbill International Rock Contest 2014 at Indira Gandhi stadium, Hockey Ground, Kohima, Nagaland. The ninth edition of Hornbill International Rock contest 2014 is an exclusive chapter of the Hornbill International Music Festival. The contest was launched on 4th December at IG stadium, Hockey ground, Kohima at 5pm. The 4 days of the contest saw 28 bands from across the country pitting their skills to see who emerges the winner of this exciting event . Guitarist Vinnie Moore from America was among the judges of the contest. As winter slowly penetrates the hilly state of Nagaland, in North East India, a festive mood seeps into the valleys. There is a buzz in the air. This is the sound of Nagaland preparing for the Hornbill Festival held in the first week of December every year. The Festival is named after a bird greatly admired by the Naga people for its alertness and grandeur. The bird, the hornbill is mentioned in much of the folklore of Nagaland. The festival takes place at the Naga Heritage Village in Kisama, not too far from Kohima. The village is a microcosm of each of the Naga tribes. Tourists are welcomed warmly to the traditional huts of each tribe, where one can sit with the elderly people of the tribe and share stories. Each morung or tribal hut, houses that particular tribe's own cuisine with the ever-present rice beer being sold to visitors as well. Even though the elders do not speak English, the younger members of the tribe can act as translators. The Hornbill Festival offers a window to the great, age-old culture and traditions of Nagaland. The Nagas, traditionally known for their kind and friendly manner open their lives every year in an attempt to showcase the best the region has to offer. Comprising of seventeen different tribes, all differentiated by their traditional attire, food and folk dances, demonstrate their rich culture and traditions at the Hornbill Festival. The festival attracts a large number of tourists, and has become larger and more popular over the years. Various types of meats, in all forms, whether roasted, dried or smoked are available in traditional Naga style. The ultimate in Naga cuisine is traditional rice-beer; this is a must for all visitors. The night bazaar is a big hit with families, friends and visitors alike -- where all kinds of Naga traditional crafts, food items, stationary and of course Naga King chilli pickle can be found. The bamboo pavilion is made entirely of bamboo and is the main souvenir shop. It completes the Naga package. Another event, true to the region was the traditional stone pulling ceremony of the Angami tribe at Kigwema village. Many gathered, both young and old, dressed in traditional attire to take part in the ceremony which brought the highway to a standstill for the duration of the ceremony .The ceremony concluded with victory dances and a community feast. Various competitions take place during the Hornbill Festival. They range from Naga wrestling, chilly eating competitions -- with the fiery King Chilli! The Pork eating competition, the traditional fire making competition, greased pole climbing and for the younger ones. The International Hornbill Rock Contest created a platform for many artists and musicians. An initiative was taken to preserve this rich cultural heritage of the Nagas, to bring unity among the various tribes and to boast tourism in the region, and so the Hornbill Festival was born.

María Jesús Pagés Madrigal was born in Seville, Spain, and began dancing professionally with the Antonio Gades Company. She choreographed for films including Carmen, El Amor Brujo and Flamenco by Carlos Saura, and in 1990 she established the Maria Pagès Company. Her work is described as incorporating the national flamenco style with outside influences. María Pagés and her company have toured internationally, appearing in the United States at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City and The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., among other venues. In 1995 the expanded version of the Riverdance show included performance by the company to music of Irish style composed by Bill Whelan. In 2000 she provided choreography for the Hispanic Heritage Awards. Pagés serves on the Board of the Cultural Council in Madrid. Flamenco is a genre of Spanish music, song, and dance from Andalusia, in southern Spain, that includes cante (singing), toque (guitar playing), baile (dance) and palmas (handclaps). First mentioned in literature in 1774, the genre grew out of Andalusian and Romani music and dance styles. In recent years flamenco has become popular all over the world and is taught in many countries: in Japan there are more academies than there are in Spain. On November 16, 2010 UNESCO declared flamenco one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Flamenco performance has evolved during the history of this musical genre. In the beginning (the 18th century at the latest), songs were sung without any guitar accompaniment; during the 19th century, the guitar was used to accompany songs, and since the second half of the 19th century, the solo guitar is played in flamenco concerts. From flamenco's beginning in the 18th century most performers have been professionals. For most of the genuine life of flamenco, a folk art that has remarkably conserved an extraordinary level of conservatism within the caucus of European folk music, with its unmistakable rhythmic patterns and tones that mark its varied forms, or 'palos', flamenco has actually been the concern, like speech itself, of non-professionals in the countryside.

Dance comparison between Kathak from India and Flamenco from Spain

From flamenco's beginning in the 18th century most performers have been professionals. For most of the genuine life of flamenco, a folk art that has remarkably conserved an extraordinary level of conservatism within the caucus of European folk music, with its unmistakable rhythmic patterns and tones that mark its varied forms, or 'palos', flamenco has actually been the concern, like speech itself, of non-professionals in the countryside. Kathak is one of the eight forms of Indian classical dances, originated from India. This dance form traces its origins to the nomadic bards of ancient northern India, known as Kathakars or storytellers. Its form today contains traces of temple and ritual dances, and the influence of the bhakti movement. From the 16th century onwards it absorbed certain features of Persian dance and central asian dance which were imported by the royal courts of the Mughal era. The name Kathak is derived from the Sanskrit word katha meaning story, and katthaka in Sanskrit means he who tells a story, or to do with stories. The name of the form is properly katthak, with the geminated dental to show a derived form, but this has since simplified to modern-day kathak. kathaa kahe so kathak is a saying many teachers pass on to their pupils, which is generally translated, 's/he who tells a story, is a kathak', but which can also be translated, 'that which tells a story, that is 'Kathak'. There are three major schools or gharanas of Kathak from which performers today generally draw their lineage: the gharanas of Jaipur, Lucknow and Benares (born in the courts of the Kachwaha Rajput kings, the Nawab of Oudh, and Varanasi respectively); there is also a less prominent (and later) Raigarh gharana which amalgamated technique from all three preceding gharanas but became famous for its own distinctive compositions.

See how an Indian sadhu presses weed and makes his 'Chillum'
 
03:19
An Indian sadhu/saint prepares a 'chillum' for himself in Assam, India. The chillum is said to have originated in India, although some were found in South America too. Therefore the exact origin of the chillum is unclear. Traditionally, this item has been used in a spiritual context. The Indian Sadhu's (holy men) have been using chillums for thousands of years, and the spiritual meaning of this is comparable to the drinking of red wine by Catholics. The chillum probably pre dates the introduction of substances such as tambakhu to India and was used for various other substances too. But chillum usage has always been an exclusively male practice, limited to the northern states and predominantly in rural areas of India. Often one chillum is shared by a group. In India they are made locally, are inexpensive and easily available.The chillum was first introduced in Europe and the US by the Flower child Woodstock generation in the sixties of the last century.

Her rhythmic acumen is apparent in dance compositions containing varied and challenging percussion patterns. Leela has choreographed a number of group and solo compositions in Bharata Natyam. One of her major choreographic productions, Spanda, was performed to high critical and audience acclaim and hailed as a seminal work. She has trained many accomplised students who are now teachers in their own right. She has authored several articles as well as the book, Rhythm in Joy. Among the many honours conferred on her, Leela Samson was awarded the prestigious Padmashri by the President of India in recognition of her outstanding contribution to the art of Bharata Natyam as well as the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award instituted by the apex cultural body of the Government of India.

King Jigme Singye Wangchuck meets school students during a public event in Bhutan. Jigme Singye Wangchuck is the former King of Bhutan. He was in the throne from 1972 to 2006 before he stepped down in favor of his eldest son, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck. Credited with bringing about many infrastructural and developmental reforms in the country, he is also known for his efforts to preserve Bhutan’s rich cultural heritage and natural environment. Born as the only son of King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck and Queen Ashi Kesang Choden Wangchuck, he received western and traditional learning in various institutions. After studying at St Joseph’s College at Darjeeling, he moved to Heatherdown Prep School in England before furthering his education at Ugyen Wangchuck Academy at Satsham Choten in Paro. Being the Crown Prince, he was appointed as the Chairman of Planning Commission in 1971. The untimely death of his father in 1972 made Jigme Singye Wangchuck the king at the tender age of 16. He continued with his father’s developmental policies upon ascending the throne and over the years built a reputation for himself as a forward-thinking monarch who tirelessly worked towards the political and economical development of the nation. He also implemented many steps to maintain the country’s rich cultural heritage and natural resources. He stepped down as the king in 2006 after abdicating in favor of his eldest son.

Roadside Dentist of Varanasi

Western dentists may earn US$500 to US$1000 per hour. This man works for US$30 per month and takes whatever fee a patient can give, or not. OK, he works on the street and all of that, and hygiene is an issue, but what the heck! Only in India - truly! A Varanasi self-styled roadside dentist shows the process of making false teeth.. As cars speed past patients in Varanasi don’t think twice about having their teeth seen to by the city’s popular street dentists. And it’s not only in Varanasi, it happens in cities all over India. Self-proclaimed roadside dentists perform complicated dental procedures on patients with limited funds using almost medieval equipment. There’s no clinic, no costly chairs, no electric drills, there’s no need for an appointment even, patients just pull up a plastic stool and hope the dentist will relieve any pain with a rusty set of pliers. Most of these roadside dentists do not have a degree or relevant formal qualification. Usually, they get some dental work experience as an assistant dentist. Many people who can not afford to pay a qualified dentist, are turning to the road dentists to solve problems related to teeth. They earn about $ 1.80 or more per day, depending on the number of patients. If you have toothache in India, you can refer to the roadside dentist.

Tandoor clay oven for making Afghani roti bread
 
02:17
Chef puts Afghani roti in oven at shop in Delhi. Afghan bread, or Naan-e Afghani is the national bread of Afghanistan. The bread is oval or rectangular and baked in a tandoor, a cylindrical oven that is the primary cooking equipment of the sub-continental region. The Afghan version of the tandoor sits above ground and is made of bricks, which are heated to cook the bread. The bread, also known as naan, is shaped and then stuck to the interior wall of the oven to bake. Black cumin or caraway seeds are often sprinkled on the bread, as much for decoration as for taste, and lengthwise lines are scored in the dough to add texture to the bread. Afghan bread is commonly stocked at Middle Eastern grocery stores in western countries. In Afghanistan the baker still cooks the bread the traditional way by spreading the dough around the tandoor, so that it quickly puffs up and starts to colour and emit a fresh bread smell that draws the early morning throngs of people. The baker then uses two long iron tongs to pull the bread from the tandoor wall. Afghans carry the bread in cloth bags. Similar to that in Arab countries, bread is served with most meals and is generally torn into shreds and used by those eating to envelope foods, so that they can be picked up and conveyed to the mouth, in a manner similar to a sandwich, and also to soak up liquids on the plate. Since people in Afghanistan normally use their hands to eat, the bread thus acts as both a fork and a spoon. The bread tastes similar to the Armenian lavash bread, as well as to Indian and Pakistani variants of naan bread. It has a dense and rich taste. sources- https://en.wikibooks.org This footage is part of the professionally-shot broadcast stock footage archive of Wilderness Films India Ltd., the largest collection of HD imagery from South Asia.

Mrinal Sen shooting Bengali cinema: rare archival footage
 
04:26
Bengali film director Mrinal Sen directing actress Uttara Baokar and Roopa Ganguly on the sets of film Ek din achanak. Ek Din Achanak is a 1989 art film directed by Mrinal Sen, based on a Bengali novel, Beej by Ramapada Chowdhury. One evening, in the midst of torrential rains, a professor (Shreeram Lagoo) goes out for a walk and fails to return. As the evening stretches into days and the days into weeks with no sign of him, his family struggles to regain their footing and to understand what might have caused him to leave. Slowly they return to their daily activities. The professor's son Amit (Arjun Chakraborty) establishes his fledgling business; his younger daughter Sima (Roopa Ganguly) resumes her studies at college; and his elder daughter, Neeta (Shabana Azmi), the backbone of the family, returns to her office job. Behind the facade of normalcy, though, the family is deeply wounded. Amit enjoys success in his business but is bitter and dour. Neeta has a very patient and supportive boyfriend (Anjan Dutt), but the relationship is stuck in a holding pattern. And their mother (Uttara Baokar) suffers debilitating depression. Their hesitant attempts to piece together the professor's state of mind before his disappearance raise more questions than they answer: Was he having an affair with a former student (Aparna Sen)? Was his academic career crumbling? Was he a plagiarist? Uttara Baokar is an Indian stage, film and television actress. She acted in several notable plays like Padmavati in Mukyhamantri, the Mena in Mena Gurjari, the Desdemona in Shakespeare's Othello, the mother in playwright Girish Karnad's Tughlaq, the nautch girl in Chhote Saiyad Bade Saiyad, the lead role of Umrao in "Umrao Jaan". In 1978, she also directed, Jaywant Dalvi's play Sandhya Chhaya, in Hindi translation by Kusum Kumar. In 1984, She won the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award, India's National Academy for Acting (Hindi theatre). She has also appeared in Marathi films like, Doghi (1995) with Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Renuka Daftardar, Uttarayan (2005), Shevri (2006) & Restaurant (2006) with Sonali Kulkarani. Roopa is an Indian actress, playback singer and politician. One of the most cerebral actresses of Bengali cinema, she has been cited as the Bengali Film Industry's answer to Bollywood's Shabana Azmi for her intense ability of acting. She is a veteran of Bengali Parallel Cinema and has worked with renowned directors like Mrinal Sen, Aparna Sen, Goutam Ghose and Rituparno Ghosh. She is a trained Rabindra Sangeet vocalist and a classical dancer. She has served as the General Secretary and the Vice President for the West Bengal Motion Picture Artistes' Forum, a body representing cine artistes.

Mulayam Singh Yadav at home: Indian politician, government official who founded Samajwadi Party
 
03:20
Rare footage of Mulayam Singh at home, at work and chatting with party colleagues. Mulayam Singh Yadav, (born November 22, 1939, Saifai, Etawah district, India), Indian politician and government official who founded and was the longtime leader of the Samajwadi (Socialist) Party (SP) of India. He served three times as chief minister of Uttar Pradesh state (1989–91, 1993–95, and 2003–07). Yadav was raised in a poor farming family near Etawah, in what is now west-central Uttar Pradesh, one of six children. He initially wanted to become a wrestler, but he went to college and completed a master’s degree in political science from Agra University. He became involved in politics at the age of 15, when he encountered the writing of the Indian socialist Ram Manohar Lohia. Lohia’s convictions on the equality of peoples and other social-justice issues strongly influenced Yadav’s own ideas about standing up for the rights of lower-caste Hindus and the minority Muslim population; his actions based on those principles marked his subsequent political career. Yadav found new political life after the 16th-century mosque was destroyed by Hindu right-wing activists in December 1992 and bloody rioting ensued. He and his newly formed Samajwadi Party (founded in October 1992) emerged as advocates for the Muslims, who credited him with supporting them when the Congress government in New Delhi failed to protect the mosque. In the November 1993 assembly polling in Uttar Pradesh, the SP won enough seats to form a coalition government, and the following month Yadav again became chief minister. His tenure this time lasted less than two years, the government falling after the pro-Dalit (“untouchable”) Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) left the coalition in 1995 and, with BJP support, took over the government. The SP made a dramatic comeback in the 2002 Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, garnering a plurality, but not a majority, of seats. However, after the collapse of a short-lived BSP-BJP coalition government in 2003, the SP put together its own governing coalition, and Yadav became chief minister for the third time. Following the BSP’s trouncing of the SP in the 2007 state assembly elections, Yadav served as leader of opposition in the assembly (2007–09) before being elected again to the Lok Sabha in 2009. In early 2012 the SP won an outright majority in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections. Yadav retained his leadership of the party, but he stepped aside to allow his son, Akhilesh Yadav, to become the state’s chief minister. The elder Yadav was reelected in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, but his party could win only five seats in the chamber.

Western tourists turn to Hinduism, change religion at Maha Kumbh, Allahabad
 
07:03
Conversion in Hinduism? We didn't think so either... The series of mantras and spectators were curious but unquestioningly welcome Mathew to their religion now he is to be given a new name Mathew becomes Mahindra Kumar Sharma. In less than two hours the Canadian Christian has converted himself into a Hindu. Like all religious festivals, the Kumbh also means different things to different people for some it is all about piety, some come to enjoy the carnival spirit for others it's a chance to renewal trance and meditation and many see it as a Woodstock experience. It is this free interpretation that makes the Kumbh more than just a confluence of sacred rivers. In the coming together of travellers from across India and the world, the Mela in effect becomes the confluence of beliefs, cultures and philosophies from all over the world. Whether it was the Beatles or Gian Pietro Marcella from Italy the mystical and spiritual of India have always remained the tantalizing attraction for the westerners. Gian Pietro came to India eight years ago after an accident that left him paralyzed one of the few things that remained with him was his experience in this country so addictive, so hypnotic he is drawn to it time and again.

Zakir Hussain and Amjad Ali Khan: jugalbandi in Delhi, 1999
 
05:02
Indian Tabla player Zakir Hussain and Sarod player Amjad Ali Khan perform at an evening of exchanging music in the year 1999 in Delhi. Ustad Amjad Ali Khan is popularly known as the "Sarod Samrat". He is the sixth generation Sarod player in his renowned family. The credit of modifying the Sarod as a classical instrument goes to his ancestors of the Bangash lineage originating from Senia Bangash School of Music. The present day Sarod has been derived by modifying the ancient folk instrument of Iran known as Rabab. Ustad Zakir Hussain is arguably the most famous Tabla player of our country in the post-independence era. Over the years, he has performed with many talented musicians not just in India but also across the world. He became a famous international celebrity after taking the sounds of Tabla to many international festivals and shows. This eventually flooded him with opportunities to work in many international movies as well. This led to the creation of brilliant works of fusion, which was new to both Indian and overseas audience. Overall, his contribution towards popularizing the Indian percussion is immense.

Baby Elephant chases after her owner as he leaves after selling her!
 
01:35
A baby elephant runs after her owner as he leaves her at the Sonepur Cattle Fair in India's state of Bihar. She has just been sold and is heartbroken to have to leave her master. As the master drives away on his motorcycle after having sold her at Asia's largest animal fair, she chases after him, and semi-growls semi-cries to be taken back. She finally blocks his path with her foot, until he finally gets off his bike and has to walk with her to have her tied up. But all this to no avail - the sale is final! A poignant moment from Bihar, India. The Sonepur Cattle Fair or Malegaon Mela is held on Kartik Poornima (the full moon day) in the month of November in Sonepur, Bihar, on the confluence of river Ganges and Gandak. It is also known as Harihar Kshetra Mela and it attracts visitors from all over Asia. Till date, it is the biggest cattle fair of Asia and stretches on from fifteen days to one month. It has its origins during ancient times. This is when Chandragupta Maurya used to buy elephants and horses across the river Ganges. The Sonepur Cattle Fair once used to attract traders from places as distant as Central Asia. Many farm animals can be bought at the Sonepur mela from all breeds of dogs, buffaloes, donkeys, ponies, Persian horses, rabbits, goats and even the occasional camel. Many varieties of birds and poultry are also available. The area that attracts all, however, is the Haathi Bazaar where elephants are lined up for sale. The Sonepur Fair is the only one where such a large number of elephants are traded - although they cannot legally be sold. Numerous stalls are also set up at the grounds of the Sonepur Cattle Fair. You will find a wide variety of goods in these stalls, ranging from garments, to weapons and furniture, toys, utensils and agricultural implements, jewelry and handicrafts. Major attraction is the sight of numerous elephants, beautifully decorated for the purpose of sale.

Cordyceps sinensis - the magical caterpillar-fungus that everyone seeks from the Himalaya!
 
03:57
Himalayan Gold – the mystery of Cordyceps sinensis It's that time of year once more when the high altitude alpine meadows of the Himalaya get into spring-summer melt mode and the Yarsagumba starts emerging! The fungus cordyceps (or Cordyceps sinensis) has been known as an effective tonic and aphrodisiac in traditional Chinese medicine and is increasingly used in China as a popular dietary supplement and medicine. Caterpillar fungus and Winter Worm - Summer Grass and keera ghas - these are the common names used for the highly prized Chinese tonic herb Cordyceps which gained international publicity in mainstream publications a few years back because of its use by Chinese women athletes breaking world Olympic running records. In ancient China, this fungus was used exclusively in the Emperor's Palace because of its scarcity. Cordyceps is also renowned within other international markets, and is available in several countries around the world where it is sold in different forms. The meadows of the Western Himalaya are the spring-summer hunting grounds of Himalayan villagers who come here in search of the elusive Cordyceps sinenesis - a fungus that grows out of a moth caterpillar which is collected here and sold in China and elsewhere at a very high cost, as a performance enhancing and rejuvenating medicine. In India, Cordyceps - locally called "Keera ghas" is a main source of income for highlanders. It grows at an altitude of 3,900 – 5,400 m above sea level during the months of May through to July. Many villagers across the western Himalaya — young and old, men and women — walk every spring-summer day along the steep paths that lead to the collecting areas. The collectors lie on the ground over the high-altitude expanses, attentively scanning the terrain. The task is difficult; requiring concentration and patience, as the fungus is so small that it cannot be easily seen amongst the dwarf Rhododendron shrubs and various alpine meadow vegetation. But villagers generally like to perform this work since it is not very difficult compared to their daily farm work, the enterprise highly profitable, and because they like spending time together in the mountains with other villagers. The collectors proceed slowly on hands and knees carefully scanning the area in front of them, keeping their faces close to the ground. The Cordyceps is carefully extracted from the soil with ones’ hand with small sticks. Some collectors say that they may even find 10 to 20 worms a day depending on their luck. At the end of the day, they come back to their high-altitude meadow abutting camps and clean the Cordyceps with a toothbrush and then store it by their camp fires, to dry. The caterpillar fungus is worth over 10 million US dollars a ton in Asian wholesale markets. It is like gold for these collectors. What a strange world we live in where a repulsive looking fungus growing out of the moribund dead body of a caterpillar can be worth tens of millions of US dollars, with the dream of enhancing one’s performance or quality of life!

Danny Denzongpa speaks about B. R. Chopra

Danny Denzongpa speaks about B. R. Chopra. He says, " I met with Mr. Chopra in 1969 or 70 at that time he had done many films and I was a film student so in the final year examination he came as an examiner and after the examination, he called me and he encouraged me and said that you are a different type of actor, you are very natural and after your course if you come to Bombay I will give you a role. That was a big thing for me because B. R. Chopra is B. R. Chopra and incidentally I told him that time the very first movie that I have seen is yours 'Naya Daur'. Then I came down to Bombay and Chopra was making a film called Dastan with Dilip Kumar and he said that there is no role in this film but I will call you if there is any but in the meantime keep struggling and keep meeting with industry people. He planned 'Dhun' after 'Dastan' and an assistant came to me and said that B. R. Chopra had asked for you."

Snow Leopard incredible flight, fall and fight - rare footage from the Himalaya
 
02:31
Don't take off at us for the watermark. That is the sole reason we can carry this footage here for it would otherwise be IPR purloined and placed onto multiple other platforms, ruining our opportunity to bring you an exclusive on this rare occurrence from nature! Surely one of the most fantastic natural history sequences ever recorded in the annals of wildlife filmmaking! This is the FIRST EVER sequence of a wild Snow Leopard actually making a kill on camera, and what fabulous gymnastics and callisthenics to boot! Do note the behaviour that you might otherwise miss. It allows us to do even more justice to this fascinating footage, especially as it’s been shot in 4K. There is a lot going on here that we don’t notice on first glance - for example, the way the Bharal still has the strength to attempt to pull itself away from the Snow Leopard, just after the first stage of the fall, and the manner in which the dexterous big cat is able to maneuver its body to help it survive. This footage tells us a lot about the two animals in terms of behaviour and physiology. What drama from the Himalaya! Not exactly another day in the life of a Snow Leopard, but this young female Snow Leopard, while bruised and battered a tad, returned to feed on the Bharal kill and fully recovered to move on, and continue its unique way of life in the high Himalaya. Hopefully, she will have cubs this year, too. We will follow her and let you know of developments in her life...

Superstar of Flamenco World - Maria Pages performs in India
 
03:07
María Pagés (born 1963) is a modern Spanish flamenco dancer and choreographer based in Madrid, Spain. María Jesús Pagés Madrigal was born in Seville, Spain, and began dancing professionally with the Antonio Gades Company. She choreographed for films including Carmen, El Amor Brujo and Flamenco by Carlos Saura, and in 1990 she established the Maria Pagès Company. Her work is described as incorporating the national flamenco style with outside influences. María Pagés and her company have toured internationally, appearing in the United States at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City and The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., among other venues. In 1995 the expanded version of the Riverdance show included performance by the company to music of Irish style composed by Bill Whelan. In 2000 she provided choreography for the Hispanic Heritage Awards. Pagés serves on the Board of the Cultural Council in Madrid. Flamenco is a genre of Spanish music, song, and dance from Andalusia, in southern Spain, that includes cante (singing), toque (guitar playing), baile (dance) and palmas (handclaps). First mentioned in literature in 1774, the genre grew out of Andalusian and Romani music and dance styles. In recent years flamenco has become popular all over the world and is taught in many countries: in Japan there are more academies than there are in Spain. On November 16, 2010 UNESCO declared flamenco one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Flamenco performance has evolved during the history of this musical genre. In the beginning (the 18th century at the latest), songs were sung without any guitar accompaniment; during the 19th century, the guitar was used to accompany songs, and since the second half of the 19th century, the solo guitar is played in flamenco concerts. From flamenco's beginning in the 18th century most performers have been professionals. For most of the genuine life of flamenco, a folk art that has remarkably conserved an extraordinary level of conservatism within the caucus of European folk music, with its unmistakable rhythmic patterns and tones that mark its varied forms, or 'palos', flamenco has actually been the concern, like speech itself, of non-professionals in the countryside.

King chilly eating competition in India!
 
04:32
Nagaland Hornbill festival Raja chilli eating competition. The famous Naga chilly or Raja mirchi eating competition during the Hornbill Festival '12 held at Naga Heritage Village, Kisama in Kohima. See the participants in this fun and daring challenge of eating the hottest chilly in the world. "The Hornbill festival held in the first week of December shows that with its stunning natural beauty and great cultural traditions, Nagaland can offer a rich fare to tourists. NAGALAND, with its diverse tribal culture, is a land of festivals. A narrow strip of mountainous territory with rugged hills, emerald valleys, sparkling streams and a rich variety of flora and fauna, the 16th State of the Indian Union has salubrious climate throughout the year. It is bounded by Assam in the west, Myanmar in the east, Arunachal Pradesh in the north and Manipur in the south. Sometimes referred to as the `Switzerland of the East', Nagaland represents unimaginable beauty, moulded perfectly for a breathtaking experience. For the adventurous, the State is an ideal place for trekking and jungle camping and offers limitless possibilities for exploring its lush sub-tropical rainforests, which are a treasure trove of medicinal plants. The 20-lakh-strong Naga people, by nature, are fun lovers, and life in Nagaland is one long festival. Nagas are admired for their rich repertory of folk dances and songs. In spite of the tremendous advance of modernity into their lives, the Naga people have a penchant for vibrant dances and songs praising the brave deeds of ancient warriors and folk heroes, love songs that immoralise tragic love stories, gospel songs and folk tunes. Festivals are celebrated by the various tribes year around; during festivals villages become most lively. Most of the dances have a robust rhythm. Festivals mainly revolve around agriculture, it being the mainstay of the economy. Over 85 per cent of the population of Nagaland is directly dependent on agriculture and lives in the 1,000-odd villages situated on hilltops or slopes overlooking verdant valleys. In this blissful setting, Nagas enjoy nature with a rare gusto that visitors to the State look at with awe and admiration. In most of these places agriculture consists of a single crop. Although some religious and spiritual sentiments are inter-woven into secular rites and rituals, the predominant theme of the festivals is the offering of prayers to a supreme being, which has different names in different Naga dialects. At these festivals, the gods are propitiated with sacrifices by the head of the village, for a bountiful harvest, either before sowing or on the eve of the harvest. In fact, agricultural work and religion are so interwoven in Naga society that it is difficult to describe the festivals independent of the processes of agriculture. Some of the important festivals celebrated by the tribes are Sekrenyi by the Angamis in February, Moatsu by the Aos in May, Tsukhenyie by the Chakhesangs in January, Aoling by the Konyaks in April, Mimkut by the Kukis in January, Bushu by the Kacharis in January, Tuluni by the Sumis in July, Nyaknylum by the Changs in July, Tokhu Emong by the Lothas in November and Yemshe by the Pochurys in October. For encouraging inter-tribal cultural interaction and bringing together the festivals of the various tribes under one umbrella, the Government of Nagaland has evolved a festival called the Hornbill festival, where one can see a melange of Naga cultural displays at one place. Organised by the State Directorate of Tourism every year between December 1 and 5 in Kohima since 2000, the festival is intended to revive, protect and preserve the richness and uniqueness of the Naga heritage and attract tourists. The festival, in a way, is also a tribute to the hornbill, a bird most admired by the Naga people for its qualities of alertness and grandeur. This majestic bird is linked closely with the social and cultural life of the people, as is evident in tribal folklores, dances and songs. The awe and admiration for the bird is symbolically displayed on almost all traditional tribal headgears worn during festivities."

The exodus of Hindus from the Srinagar valley
 
15:00
Last year Kashmir had a population of one lakh forty thousand (1,40,000) Hindus. In the last 6 months, more than one lakh Hindus have fled their homes with just their clothes on their backs. Several pockets of Hindu population have become a ghost town. There were numerous pressures that forced these Hindus to leave. Children had no schools to go to, colleges had closed, weeks of curfew had converted homes into prisons often without electricity, water and food. But most of all, it was the tension of being a minority in an increasingly fanatical atmosphere where the very air they breathed was laid with violence and fear. They had to leave secured jobs, sometimes of 20 years. Established business running for generations and even the properties and orchards for a blank certain future with marginal help from the government. Why they asked, should we be refugees in our own country?
