Sylvie Robin-Tellier's insight:

À l'occasion des 100 ans du cinéma indien, découvrez le Henri Langlois indien. Né au Kérala en 1933, il a passé sa vie à archiver des films à Pune, mais il s'inquiète de l'état de son trésor depuis qu'il a pris sa retraite en 1991. Mr Scorcese, il reste des films à sauver en ce monde !

Le viol de l'étudiante va-t-il réveiller la société indienne ?

Le viol de l'étudiante va-t-il réveiller la société indienne ? | Are larkiyan ! | Scoop.it

Il aura fallu une semaine d'émeutes pour que le Premier ministre, Manmohan Singh, sorte enfin de son silence pour promettre de réviser une législation qui protège bien mal les femmes. Entre-temps, le chef de la police de New Delhi avait balayé cyniquement la polémique d'un revers de la main, en faisant valoir que les hommes aussi étaient en danger dans la capitale, en raison des pickpockets qui y sévissent... Une déclaration qui en dit long sur un machisme indien plus qu'endurci.

Khap comments irk women activists

Khap comments irk women activists | Are larkiyan ! | Scoop.it

AIDWA general-secretary Sudha Sundaraman said: “Statements like these imply that girls are themselves responsible for the violence perpetrated on them. Instead of sending out a strong message against rapists and those involved in sexual harassment, these self-styled panchayat leaders are justifying sexual violence and extending immunity to the offenders by shifting the blame elsewhere. We strongly assert that the minimum age of marriage for girls should be above 18, as decreed by law.”

Lost in Haryana rape debate, a girl’s story | Are larkiyan ! | Scoop.it

Police records tell the bare bones of Reshma’s story. She was kidnapped, blindfolded, gagged and later sexually assaulted on September 9, while she was on her way to her grandmother’s place.

It was only on September 18, though, that her family, the village and the police came to know what had happened. Reshma’s father, a gardener, had been shown a photograph of his daughter being raped, which the perpetrators had circulated using their mobile phones. He committed suicide, and the story came out into the open.
