MAGIE DE L’IMAGE – Quand la photo provoque un élan de générosité
Jacques Le Bris's insight:

Le visage de Roona Begum a fait le tour du monde. La diffusion de la photo de cette Indienne de 18 mois souffrant d'une hypertrophie du crâne, une maladie rare et impressionnante mais qui peut être soignée, a provoqué un élan de solidarité, après l'appel à un "miracle" lancé par ses parents.

 

La diffusion des clichés d'un photographe de l'Agence France-presse (AFP) sur le Web a suscité l'émoi d'internautes, et contribué à la création de sites destinés à collecter des fonds pour aider l'enfant que ses parents n'ont pas les moyens de soigner.

Parmi eux, mygoodact.com, hébergé en Norvège, a déjà récolté plus de 35 000 dollars depuis son lancement le 12 avril. Un hôpital réputé de New Delhi a également offert d'examiner Roona.

Holi - the Festival of Colors

Wednesday (March 11th), people in India and other countries with large Hindu populations celebrated Holi, the Festival of Colors. Holi is celebrated as a welcoming of Spring, and a celebration of the triumph of good over evil. What that translates to in action is an enthusiastic dropping of inhibitions, as people chase each other and playfully splash colorful paint, powder and water on each other. People also attend bonfires to commemorate the story of Prahlada, a Hindu figure and devout follower of Lord Vishnu who prevailed over his father and the demoness Holika with the power of his devotion. Collected here are photos from this year's Festival of Colors.

Cricket passion

Cricket passion | Epic pics | Scoop.it
Only soccer rivals cricket in transcending the world of sport to become a deeply felt expression of culture. And in cricket-mad South Asia, a frenzy of feeling for the game burst open for the past two months as the Cricket World Cup 2011 was played out in host countries India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. Fourteen nations participated in the tournament, and the semifinals featured what is arguably the world's most heated sports rivalry: India vs. Pakistan. Collected here are pictures from the past few months of people playing, watching, and living cricket in several countries in South Asia. (http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2011/04/cricket_passion.html
