Review of Sangeeta Wadhwani Coho Bohemia, the Bombay Artwalk in Worli with Alyque Padamsee, DJ Sin, 2Blue and many more

Review of Sangeeta Wadhwani Coho Bohemia, the Bombay Artwalk in Worli with Alyque Padamsee, DJ Sin, 2Blue and many more

Coho Bohemia, the Bombay Artwalk, is a movement for people by people…essentially creative people though. A mix of singers, dancers, rappers, poets, authors, ranging from edgy and experimental to urbane know-it-alls, get together on a Saturday afternoon in a beautiful artspace to simply share and grow. Each ‘talent’ gets a 10 to 15 minute segment to share his or her passion and interact briefly with a live audience.
A movement established by an expat author, journalist and Bharat Natyam exponent called Janet Fine, about 15 years ago, it earlier entailed going from one gallery to the next, mostly in downtown Colaba and Kala Ghoda where galleries were walking distances from each other.  After Janet’s untimely demise in 2007, Coho too died a natural death. Sangeeta Wadhwani, a friend of Janets had a dream that reviving Coho could be fun. She called on all of the usual coterie that knew Janet and tried to reassemble the tradition. Only now, it got a notch better with professional sound and evolving talent.  The most recent Coho just took place on May 16 at Gallery Art and Soul, and featured performances from a variety of creative individuals. ..from theatre doyen Alyque Padamsee doing a POP UP workshop on appreciating Shakespeare “whose words should exist between the lips and the listener’s ear” to a soul renting presentation by Trublu aka Judas from the current production of Jesus Christ Superstar. DJ Sin got down to amusing and entertaining the audience with original rap recited with sitar exponent Kumar Madhusudan and tabla player Brijesh. Representatives from Giants International showcased their work building houses for rehabilitation post the Nepal earthquake and immediately raised enough to fund half a new bamboo, earthquake friendly house! And the mellifluous Vikram Malwankar and Aradhana of the Uttama Music Academy revisited a host of ghazals and movie classics. Young author Anjali Kirplani read from her new book Written In the Stars while fashion designer Arti Vijay Gupta presented an installation of her garments all featuring prints of miniature paintings from different ateliers in India.
All in all the magic of Coho continues wherever aesthetics,  music, the written word and theatre get to breathe and expand…! And yes when I the curator Sangeeta Wadhwani,  find enough space and time to assemble all…

Louis CK – SNL Monologue – Racism & Child Molesters

Louis CK – SNL Monologue – Racism & Child Molesters

saturday-night-live-louis-ck-nbc


During last night’s Saturday Night Live opening monologue, comedian Louis C.K.decided to hit pretty much every hot button issue. In the span of eight minutes, he managed to tackle casual racism, the Israel/Palestinian conflict and child molestation. It was a lot, to say the least.

Devout fans know that Louis C.K.’s brand of humor is all about pushing envelopes, in the vein of Richard Pryor and George Carlin. But the earnest SNL viewer might have found that lines like “Child molesters are very tenacious people. They love molesting childs, it’s crazy!” took edginess a little too far.

As we reported earlier, today (5/16) is the 25th anniversary of the release of Ice Cube’s debut album,Amerikkka’s Most Wanted. To celebrate the milestone, Cube has made a series of videos detailing behind the scenes stories about the making of the landmark LP.

In part 1, the rapper born O’Shea Jackson reveals that he originally wanted Dr. Dre to produce his album, but it was blocked by record label politics. Ice Cube also details how his recording session with Chuck D and Big Daddy Kane for Public Enemy’s “Burn Hollywood Burn” led to his eventual pairing with PE’s production outfit, The Bomb Squad, to craft the album’s sonic landscape. Do you think Amerikkka’s Most Wanted would have been the classic it became, under the stewardship of Dr. Dre?

Restaurant shut down after ‘serving human flesh’

Restaurant shut down after ‘serving human flesh’

A restaurant has reportedly been shut down following allegations it was serving its customers human flesh.

Wholesale Price Of Beef Rises to New High

According to BBC News Swahili, visitors to the hotel restaurant in Anambra, Nigeria, notified police that there were rumours that human meat was being given to customers.

The BBC reports that when police raided the restaurant, they found to their horror that fresh human heads – still bleeding – were being stored in the back and that some human flesh was being served. In addition, officers found automatic weapons and mobile phones.

‘Every time I went to the market, I observed strange activities going on in the hotel,’ one local resident told the BBC.

‘People who were never cleanly dressed and who looked a bit strange made their way in and out of the hotel, making me very suspicious of their activities. I am not surprised at the shocking revelation.’

A priest who had recently eaten at the restaurant reportedly told authorities that he had been presented with a bill of 700 Naira – around £2.20 – which is a large amount of money in a country where millions survive on less than 60p a day.

‘The attendant noticed my reaction and told me it was the small piece of meat I had eaten that made the bill scale that high,’ he told the BBC.

‘I did not know I had been served with human meat, and that it was that expensive.’

Police are said to have arrested 10 people in connection with the crimes.

Strange Argentina Ghost Town That Was Underwater For 25 Years Re-emerges

Strange Argentina Ghost Town That Was Underwater For 25 Years Re-emerges

A strange ghost town that spent a quarter century under water is coming up for air again in the Argentine farmlands southwest of Buenos Aires.

Epecuen was once a bustling little lakeside resort, where 1,500 people served 20,000 tourists a season. During Argentina’s golden age, the same trains that carried grain to the outside world brought visitors from the capital to relax in Epecuen’s saltwater baths and spas.Buenos Aires

The saltwater lake was particularly attractive because it has 10 times more salt than the ocean, making the water buoyant. Tourists, especially people from Buenos Aires’ large Jewish community, enjoyed floating in water that reminded them of the Dead Sea in the Middle East.

Then a particularly heavy rainstorm followed a series of wet winters, and the lake overflowed its banks on Nov. 10, 1985. Water burst through a retaining wall and spilled into the lakeside streets. People fled with what they could, and within days their homes were submerged under nearly 10 meters (33 feet) of corrosive saltwater.

Buildings lay in ruins in Epecuen, a village that was once submerged by water in Argentina a quarter century ago. But as the lake recedes, a strange ghost village is seen emerging in the tides.

Now the water has mostly receded, exposing what looks like a scene from a movie about the end of the world. The town hasn’t been rebuilt, but it has become a tourist destination again, for people willing to drive at least six hours from Buenos Aires to get here, along 340 miles (550 kilometers) of narrow country roads.

People come to see the rusted hulks of automobiles and furniture, crumbled homes and broken appliances. They climb staircases that lead nowhere, and wander through a graveyard where the water toppled headstones and exposed tombs to the elements.

It’s a bizarre, post-apocalyptic landscape that captures a traumatic moment in time.

One man refused to leave. Pablo Novak, now 82, still lives on the edge of the town, welcoming people who wander into the wrecked streets.

It only took 20 days for the town to submerge beneath almost 10 meters of water forcing everybody to leave. As the years passed, slowly the water started to recede.

It’s a bizarre, post-apocalyptic landscape that captures a traumatic moment in time.

One man refused to leave. Pablo Novak, now 82, still lives on the edge of the town, welcoming people who wander into the wrecked streets.

“Whoever passes nearby cannot go without coming to visit here,” Novak said while showing The Associated Press around. “It’s getting more people to the area, as they come to see the ruins.”

Many residents of Epecuen fled to nearby Carhue, another lakeside town, and built new hotels and spas, promising relaxing getaways featuring saltwater and mud facials.

“Not only do we have Epecuen with the ruins and its natural wealth, but we also can increasingly offer other alternatives,” said Javier Andres, the local tourism director.
