...Sex and violence in films is no child's play. Actress Raveena Tandon realised that to her discomfort at the inaugural function of the 13th International Children's Film Festival recently. There were reportedly a lot of red faces in Hyderabad when some children sang and danced to the tune of raunchy film numbers during the opening festivities. While both Andhra Pradesh chief minister Chandrababu Naidu and Union I&B Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad expressed their displeasure at the vulgar contents of the show, the 'Mast Mast' girl's predicament was compounded by the fact that she also heads the Children's Film Society of India.

Hindi and Christ

...Reflection. The conversion of the sinner THEO 104-B04 Troy Temple September 16, 2013 Introduction Who is Jesus Christ and how does believing in him affect so many people. Many people will tell you that you must believe in God to save your soul for eternity. How do people truly know that God is real, and how was the Bible written over hundreds of years, how can people be so trusting in something he or she has never seen. So how is Christianity so different from the Wiccan religion? These are questions that I started to ask myself once I start this class. Both religions started out the same, giving people something to believe in. Doctrine of Christianity The book of Genesis states that in the beginning God created the heavens and earth. Then God said let there be light: and light was good (Genesis 1:3). It was the old testament of the Bible prophecies that causes mankind to believe in God and the Bible. Versus Prophesied all nations would be blessed through one special descendant or seed of Abraham. Jews and Gentiles alike are blessed when they accept Jesus a descendant of Abraham as their Savior (Matthew 1:1). The holy Bible contains 66 books and was written over a period of 1,600 years (Towns, 2007). Whereas the Bible is spread out all over the world, and in many different languages, but still holds true to the message. However, the Bible was written by mortal men that contained sin inherited from Adam just like everyone else. Therefore when...

Homosexuality in Popular Hindi Cinema

...HS-404 Homosexuality in Popular Hindi Cinema Abstract:India is a country with vibrant popular culture. Nowhere is the collective consciousness of the nation probably better essayed than in the cinema, which is viewed with passionate enthusiasm. Taking Popular Hindi Cinema as a mainstay of Indian culture, this article tries to create a link between the depiction of homosexuality in Popular Hindi Cinema and the society. Different viewpoints are looked from and observed in Indian popular culture, such as the non – acceptance of homosexuality by some quarters, the crude stereotyping and the slowly emerging new wave of thought that treats the subject with a compassionate eye, and gives it a humane treatment. Submitted by : Vivek Maheshwary 0800206 INTRODUCTION : Many Bollywood movies have explored various social issues such as child marriage, polygamy, dowry system, casteism and terrorism. However, homosexuality, a taboo subject in Indian society and religion, has yet not been fully explored in Bollywood. “Homosexuality refers to sexual behaviour with or attraction to people of the same sex or to a homosexual orientation.” Gay refers to male homosexuality whereas lesbian refers to female homosexuality. Jab pyaar kiya to darna kya, Jab pyaar kiya to darna kya, Pyaar kiya koi chori nahi ki, Chhup chhup aahein bharna kya..

These devices come with an alternative for the traditional alphanumeric or QWERTY keyboard which is input in the form of user’s handwriting. The handwriting is then converted into normal text form. However, these devices require prior training to be done by the user. There is a high demand for robust and accurate recognition systems in the practical applications of handwriting recognition. The real challenge lies with the selection of a classifier which gives accurate results in real-time, while making the system self-adaptive simultaneously. Thus, in this paper various classifiers have been studied so as to find the most appropriate classifier for anonline handwriting recognition system for handwriting in Hindi language that provides a way by which the touch screen device adapts itself to its user handwriting without prior training is studied.

Hindi Essay on Diwali

...दीपावली का अर्थ है दीपों की पंक्ति। दीपावली शब्द ‘दीप’ एवं ‘आवली’ की संधि से बना है। आवली अर्थात पंक्ति। इस प्रकार दीपावली शब्द का अर्थ है, दीपों की पंक्ति। भारतवर्ष में मनाए जानेवाले सभी त्यौहारों में दीपावली का सामाजिक और धार्मिक दोनों दृष्टि से अत्यधिक महत्त्व है। इसे दीपोत्सव भी कहते हैं। ‘तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय’ अर्थात् ‘अंधेरे से ज्योति अर्थात प्रकाश की ओर गमन’। दीप जलाने की प्रथा के पीछे अलग-अलग कारण या कहानियां हैं। हिंदू मान्यताओं में राम भक्तों के अनुसार कार्तिक अमावस्या को भगवान श्री रामचंद्रजी चौदह वर्ष का वनवास काटकर तथा असुरी वृत्तियों के प्रतीक रावणादि का संहार करके अयोध्या लौटे थे। तब अयोध्यावासियों ने राम के राज्यारोहण पर दीपमालाएं जलाकर महोत्सव मनाया था। इसीलिए दीपावली हिंदुओं के प्रमुख त्योहारों में से एक है। कृष्ण भक्तिधारा के लोगों का मत है कि इस दिन भगवान श्री कृष्ण ने अत्याचारी राजा नरकासुर का वध किया था। इस नृशंस राक्षस के वध से जनता में अपार हर्ष फैल गया और प्रसन्नता से भरे लोगों ने घी के दीए जलाए। एक पौराणिक कथा के अनुसार विंष्णु ने नरसिंह रुप धारणकर हिरण्यकश्यप का वध किया था तथा इसी दिन समुद्रमंथन के पश्चात लक्ष्मी व धन्वंतरि प्रकट हुए। नेपालियों के लिए यह त्योहार इसलिए महान है क्योंकि इस दिन से नेपाल संवत में नया वर्ष शुरू होता है। पंजाब में जन्मे स्वामी रामतीर्थ का जन्म व महाप्रयाण दोनों दीपावली के दिन ही हुआ। इन्होंने दीपावली के दिन गंगातट पर स्नान करते समय 'ओम' कहते हुए समाधि ले ली। महर्षि दयानन्द ने भारतीय संस्कृति के महान जननायक बनकर दीपावली के दिन अजमेर के निकट अवसान लिया। इन्होंने आर्य समाज की स्थापना की।...

Experiments Abound in Today"S Hindi Cinema

...While growing up in the northern plains of Bihar, I loved watching Spaghetti Westerns―all the way from John Wayne to Clint Eastwood. There was something so outlandish about them that despite their breathless guns and bloodletting, I found them rather amusing. Little did I then know that if I wanted to see the Wild West for myself, I had only to look a few miles to my south―towards the coal mines around the charred, soot-soaked town of Dhanbad. My neighbourhood Wild West complete with its dust-laden rusticity and bloodthirsty brawn, comes to life in ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’. The film is an epic retelling of the vicious circle of violence that has gripped Dhanbad and its vicinity from before Independence, weaving together political history and social commentary with sweat-scented tension and a wry humour. The first part of the five-hour drama was released on 22 June, the second part has released in August. The story, based on actual news reports, is a multi-generational account of the blood feud between two Muslim families―one Pathan and the other Qureshi (butcher)―and how it is used by a powerful Hindu Bhumihar for political gains. Protagonist Sardar Khan has vowed to avenge his father’s murder at the behest of mining contractor-turned-minister Ramadhir Singh. Sardar’s father Shahid Khan was himself a ‘bahubali’ (local strongman) working for Singh in the village of Wasseypur, but was murdered when Singh learnt of his plan to betray him. Singh also sent Ehsaan Qureshi,...
