60 years of cultural and economic ties
This year marks 60 years of Indo-German ties. To commemorate this, Urban Mela, a travelling festival, which portrays culture, art, architecture and technology of the two countries was held. The nights at the YMCA College of Physical Education were lit by the artistically designed 14 pavilions by renowned German artist Markus Heinsdorff and housed various German companies. The companies displayed the best of their products and enlightened the crowd on the ways to tackle the problems arising from a growing urban population. Percussion wizard, Sivamani along with his German counterpart Christoph Haberer set the tune to the 10 day long event. Apart from these, the mela had rock concerts, the urban campus, Piano recital, electronic band, choir, theatre and dance events. The mela travels to New Delhi and Pune apart from Mumbai and Bangalore and the 60-year celebration ends at Delhi at the Asia Pacific conference.

Dreamliners majestic debut

Excitement and thrill engulfed the Chennai airport. It was for the landing of a flight, Air India’s Dreamliner. With 118 passengers, Captain A S Soman steered the maiden voyage of the Dreamliner from Delhi to Chennai. Water cannons saluted the flight and traditional poojas were performed. The aircraft offers 256 seats.High-end technologies were employed in the development of the flight; it  produces 20 per cent less emission Dreamliners majestic debut than other similar sized planes and boasts of lower maintenance costs. The futuristic design of the plane enables maximum aerodynamic efficiency with state-of-the-art in- light entertainment system. Air India joins All Nippon Airways, Japan Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines as the airlines that operate the Dreamliner. Expected to be the lifesaver of Air India, the Dreamliner’s debut not only created hype at the airport but also in the whole industry.

Re-use sandhais

So you don’t know what to do with things that are still usable but doesn’t fit in to your house? Reuse sandhai comes as a solution to this.

Started as the brain child of a Bangalore based forum, the Facebook page of re-use sandhai is specific to Chennai where you can post details on items ranging from baby products to furniture that can be re- sed by someone else. The group has strict guidelines that restricts advertisements and closely monitors the posts made. The page also serves as a discussion platform for like-minded people on eco-friendly practices.

City men are emotionally weak

The National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB) data for 2011 is not very surprising. It re-establishes last year’s finding that more of Chennai men commit suicide compared to the metro’s women. For every one woman who takes her life, 3 men commit suicide (a ratio of 1:2.8 for women to men) while the state’s ratio s 1:1.8. Family problems and illness are said to be the major reasons for this. Chennai leads all the metros in this ratio. Changing family styles and work pressure have contributed to the increase. Counselling and better social interactions are required to help men overcome this life or death changing thought.
