The concept of Doorstep school was born in 1988... (more) Added: December 09, 2007 The concept of Doorstep school was born in 1988-89 out of a study project in Mumbai and Pune to determine the causes of high drop out rates of children who come from the slums around the Municipal schools. The causes are varied, complex and often beyond the mandate of the formal education system. It was determined that an alternative was necessary that would not only take education to the very doorstep of these poor and marginalized communities but also develop a supporting infrastructure that would prevent children from falling out of the formal education system once they enroll there. Over the last 15 years Door Step School has evolved into an organization of dedicated individuals who reach out to more than 40 communities with over a 100 projects that cater to 8000 children in Pune and Mumbai.

This provocative documentary, a regular on the film-festival circuit, examines the history of suburbia and the wisdom of this distinctly American way of life. A post-World War II concept, suburbia attracted droves of people, giving rise to sprawl and all that comes with it -- good and bad. How has the environment been affected by this lifestyle, and is it sustainable? Canadian director Gregory Greene dares to ask all the tough questions. Since World War II North Americans have invested much of their newfound wealth in suburbia. It has promised a sense of space, affordability, family life and upward mobility. As the population of suburban sprawl has exploded in the past 50 years, so too the suburban way of life has become embedded in the American consciousness. Suburbia, and all it promises, has become the American Dream. But as we enter the 21st century, serious questions are beginning to emerge about the sustainability of this way of life. With brutal honesty and a touch of irony, The End of Suburbia explores the American Way of Life and its prospects as the planet approaches a critical era, as global demand for fossil fuels begins to outstrip supply. World Oil Peak and the inevitable decline of fossil fuels are upon us now, some scientists and policy makers argue in this documentary. The consequences of inaction in the face of this global crisis are enormous. What does Oil Peak mean for North America? As energy prices skyrocket in the coming years, how will the populations of suburbia react to the collapse of their dream? Are today's suburbs destined to become the slums of tomorrow? And what can be done NOW, individually and collectively, to avoid The End of Suburbia?

The atrocious violence that swept through Kenya after Decemberís disputed presidential election has meant untold misery for children.Hundreds of thousands of children have been displaced, now forced to live in bleak camps and tents across the country. The violence erupted as children sought to begin their new school year. Typically a sanctuary for millions of Kenyan children, this new education year commenced with burning schools, teachers in hiding far from their classrooms, and students fleeing homes as their precious books and uniforms were turned to ashes. Tonight thousands of Kenyan children will sleep with these nightmares, hungry and in crowded rooms. When they wake, many have no schools to go to. But amid the turmoil, UNICEF is ensuring protection and normalcy for as many children as it can. Education is providing a means.Safe now and back at a UNICEF-supported school on the edge of Nairobiís biggest slum, young Pinto Omondi has some advice for his countryís leaders.

Elite Squad (Tropa De Elite) is an intense and astonishing look at Rio de Janeiro’s notorious favelas, the volatile slums on the edge of the city. The film is set in 1997 and presents an intimate look at the city’s vast and intricate web of corruption. Drug trafficking militias have virtual control within the favelas while the police run their criminal enterprises outside. The elite BOPE force (State Police Special Operations Battalion) combats drug trafficking –keeping order has its price though and their actions make it difficult to distinguish right from wrong and justice from revenge. BOPE Captain Nascimento (Wagner Moura) is facing a crisis: in addition to the pressures of fighting within war zones, the Captain must find and train his own replacement so he can escape the day to day violence and be close to his wife who is about to give birth to their first child. Two of the force’s newest recruits, Neto (Caio Junqueira) and Matias (André Ramiro), are childhood friends: one is quick on the trigger to maintain order and the other refuses to compromise his ideals. Together they are the perfect replacement. Alone they may not have what it takes to survive.

*******www.instablogs****/ Abandoned deal reignites rebel war in Philippines Human history is fraught with conflicts for instance political, economic, social, and cultural. Some of them have been overcome successfully others await solution. The battle raging on the beautiful island of Mindanao has managed to create the most dreadful divide that transcends all the above categories. The story of Chritian Rita Lapi and Muslim Latifah carain epitomizes not just the rift between the two communities but also division of heart, mind and soul. This is absolutely tragic and could have disastrous consequences for Christian and Muslim population of Mindanao. History has witnessed bloody partitions accompanied by mass exodus of entire populations from one end to the other. The current situation in Mindanao opens window for a similar reenactment. Both muslim and Christian populace of the island must understand that commingling of minds and hearts can help resolve most vicious conflicts. They must retain the vital essential called humanitarianism and compassion towards human life that can help fill the deepest divide. Lebanese women fight against nationality laws Thousands of children in Lebanon are denied full access to education, healthcare and residency because they do not have Lebanese citizenship. Lebanese women cannot pass on their nationality to their children. In the event of separation, it is the father who gains automatic custody, according to Lebanese nationality law. In a country famed for being the region's most socially liberal and politically democratic, just one woman, Bahia Hariri, the sister of slain former premier Rafik Hariri, is a member of Lebanon's new unity cabinet. Women's groups are demanding 35 percent reservation within government, so that issues like custody and nationality law could take precedence. Poor political representation is hampering women's ability to reform discriminatory laws. Many Lebanese women have children abroad and would like to return to Lebanon with their families but are prohibited because they are unable to provide legal papers to their families. Dharavi eyed by real estate developers Plans to demolish Dharavi, the largest slum in Mumbai are fast adrift. Reason being the desire to transform Mumbai into Indian Shanghai replete with swankiest buildings and booming commercial centers. Actually, the plan is meant to erase the patch that puts Mumbai, India’s commercial heart to shame in the eyes of streaming visitors. Is erasing Dharavi the only way to uplift Mumbai from its sense of ignominy? Mumbai should be proud of Dharavi. Slum dwellers should be given assistance to better their surroundings. The corner, no matter how miserable provides shelter and means of livelihood to thousands who flock Mumbai in hope of better future. Besides dharavi is an asset not a liability. The number of informal businesses and cottage industries that run from within it help meet the metro’s insatiable demands. With Mumbai already starved for space all the talk of rehabilitating slum dwellers in new buildings within Mumbai is absolute nonsense. Both Dharavians and Mumbaiites should unite and fight the real culprits – real estate developers- who want to enrich themselves at their cost. Anti Americanism seething in South America They say being anti-American is to be fascist, Nazi, terrorist, communist and anarchist, anyway, there are unpleasant adjectives to describe those who criticize the actions of the United States here in South America.But is that true? In the 60's the dictatorships which proliferated here were all supported by the United States. Those countries that refuse to overthrow if their “leftist” presidents, were threatened. If a government wanted to invest in land reform, education, public health, distribution of income was immediately strikethrough of communist and should be deposed! The largest democracy in the world shouldn't support other democracies? That is a paradox! More than this, hypocrisy. What United States did in that part of the world was simply hinder economic development and political integration of countries so they could maintain their regional hegemony. Fortunately, this situation is changing. Brazil is becoming itself a regional power that acts multilaterally, respecting all neighboring countries in search of an integration policy that will strengthen South America in the world. Am I Nazi or terrorist only because desire democracy? *******www.instablogs****/
