A double bill of films set in India. Comedy-drama 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' (2011) follows the experiences of a group of elderly Brits who arrive to take up residence in a newly-opened retirement home in Bangalore, India. Despite its glossy publicity campaign, the Marigold turns out to be rather different from the refurbished luxury hotel advertised in the brochures. However, it soon begins to reveal some unexpected charms of its own. Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel, Tom Wilkinson and Maggie Smith star.

'Slumdog Millionaire' (2008), the rags-to-possible riches tale, was the winner of eight Oscars at the 2009 Academy Awards, including Best Film and Best Director. Jamal Malik (Patel) is an 18-year-old street kid from the slums of Mumbai. So what is he doing appearing on the Indian version of 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire'? How can a young man from his background of poverty have acquired the knowledge to be only one correct answer away from winning 20 million rupees? With only one more question to be asked, however, the dream turns to nightmare. As the hooter sounds to signal the end of the show, Jamal is arrested and accused of cheating. No one can believe that he could really know all of the answers he has given. As Jamal tells the story of his life to the police, the reasons for his success begin to appear. Will Jamal be freed to hear the final question and, if so, will he know the answer?

He was expecting fame, fortune, the Rolling Stones and a nice girl, not poverty, loneliness and racism. Still, he might not have found Keith Richards, but he did find the girl. Neha is dying. Lung cancer, a genetic gift from her mother and an invocation to forge a better relationship with her brother and her widowed father before it's too late. The problem is, her brother is an unfunny comedian and her idiot father is a first-generation immigrant who moved to Keighley of all places. Rakesh is grieving. He lost his mother and his sister to the same illness, and his career as a comedian is flat-lining. Sure, his sister would have claimed that it was because he was simply unfunny, but he can't help feel that there is more to it than that - more to do with who he is and where he comes from rather than the content of his jokes. Ba has never looked after her two young grandchildren before. After her daughter died, her useless son-in-law dumped them on her doorstep for a month and now she has to try and work out how to bond with two children who are used to England, not to the rhythms of Kenya...

Vulnerability and Risk Measurement of Climate Induced Disasters in Gujarat (Hardcover): Shital Shukla Vulnerability and Risk Measurement of Climate Induced Disasters in Gujarat (Hardcover)
Shital Shukla
R955 Discovery Miles 9 550 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Risk and vulnerability measurement is the first necessary step for any serious contemplation of disaster reduction strategies as well as climate change policies. Measuring vulnerability risk is an emerging technique which can systematically assess and analyse vulnerability and risk due to future possible climatic hazards. It can reveal many adverse effects which are led by climate induced disasters on society. Therefore, it helps state as well as society for preparing and adopting adequate and successful measures for reducing the risk factors. In other words, measuring vulnerability and risk can show direction for preventing losses. It leads towards preparedness to reduce recovery time rather than dependence on relief and reconstruction and can help decision-makers in prioritising their intervention for proactive disaster mitigation strategies and climate change policies. This book has assessed the pattern of climate induced disaster in Gujarat. It argues that disasters and development are mutually related. Disasters can create a setback in a process of development. At the same time, the type of development can increase or reduce the risk due to disaster. Therefore, the risk due to climate induced disasters also depends on vulnerability pattern on the state. This book has explored a regional model for assessing the pattern of vulnerability within the state by identifying the determinants of vulnerability existing in the state. It has finally provided the ways and means of integrating risk reduction strategies into development planning and climate change policies.
