Rare silent film 'Light of Asia' screened at Centenary fest -----------------------------------------------------------------------Silent film 'The Light of Asia', which revolves around the story of Gautam Bhudd ha, was screened at the Indian cinema centenary festival in New Delhi. The 1925 silent film is based on the story by Edwin Arnold. The film was screene d at 'Gulshan Mahal', a makeshift tent cinema erected as part of a unique attrac tion at the festival. The film opens with rare shots taken in a video travelogue fashion that take the audience on tour of the "fabled land of India". The film captures the India of almost 90 years ago. It is surprising to see a tr amway passing in front of the Jama Masjid where one jostles for space today or t he world-famous Mahabodhi Temple in Gaya. Himanshu Rai played Lord Buddha, while his wife's role was essayed by a young Se eta Devi. The rich cinematography by Josef Wirsching and Willi Kiermeier with use of chiar oscuro and light-shadow play makes it one of the rarest cinematic heritage of In dia. The over 90-minute film was screened last year in Bangkok at the International B uddhist film Festival there to much acclaim. Another silent Hindi film 'Prem Sanyas' was also screened at the festival. The f ilm was directed by German filmmaker Franz Osten and it was based on a script by Niranjan Pal, the son of freedom fighter Bipin Chandra Pal of the famous Bal-La l-Pal trio.
*** India to host IBSA summit in June ------------------------------------------After a gap of over 20 months, India, Brazil and South Africa (IBSA) -- three l arge democracies from three different continents will meet at the summit level h ere on June 6. The summit will also commemorate the Tenth anniversary of its founding. It will be held a decade after the Indian Prime Minister and Presidents of the other two countries felt marginalised at the Evian G-8 summit in 2003. Such was the depth of their anguish that barely four days later, their Foreign Ministers gathered in Brasilia and issued a declaration announcing the setting up of IBSA. This will be the sixth IBSA Summit with the first one held in Brasilia in 2006. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh alone has the distinction of attending all IBSA su mmits since. According to a backgrounder put out by the Foreign Office, IBSA cooperates on th ree fronts -- first, as a forum seeking reforms in global institutions of politi cal and economic governance; second, trilateral collaboration through working gr oups and People-to-People Forums for the common benefit of three countries; and, third, assisting other developing countries by taking up projects through the I BSA Fund.
The purpose is the opposite of what G-8 does demonstrate the desirability of Sou th-South cooperation beyond the conventional areas of exchange of experts and tr aining. ``IBSA's success in contributing to discourse on global issues also show s the importance of engaging with the countries of the South, said the Ministry of External Affairs backgrounder. While the BRICS forum which also includes Russia and China has not added the mil itary dimension to its cooperation, IBSA held the third edition of joint naval e xercises off South Africa late last year.
