Indiens Wirtschaft wächst weiter mit Rekordtempo… (AFP)

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on August 31, 2007

Neu Delhi – Indiens Boom hält weiter an. Die Wirtschaft des Subkontinents wuchs von April bis Juni des Jahres um 9,1 Prozent, wie aus am Freitag veröffentlichten amtlichen Zahlen hervorgeht. Im abgelaufenen Geschäftsjahr war Indiens Wirtschaft insgesamt um 9,4 Prozent gewachsen, so schnell wie nie in den vergangenen 18 Jahren. Vor allem die neue Mittelschicht in dem 1,1 Milliarden Menschen zählenden Land sorgt dafür, dass Indien die am schnellsten wachsende Volkswirtschaft nach China hat. Laut Ministerpräsident Manmohan Sigh muss Indiens Wirtschaft um mindestens zehn Prozent jährlich wachsen, damit die weit verbreitete Armut in dem Land bekämpft werden kann.

Jodhpur – Ein 90-jähriger Mann ist in Indien zum 21. Mal Vater geworden – und er möchte bis zu seinem 100. Geburtstag weiter Nachwuchs zeugen. “Ich kann noch mindestens zehn Jahre so weiter machen”, sagte Nanu Ram Jogi am Freitag der Nachrichtenagentur AFP. Doch seine 50-jährige Frau Saburi wolle nicht noch weitere Kinder haben. Sie ist die vierte Ehefrau von Nanu Ram Jogi. Beide zusammen haben 13 Kinder, die jüngste Tochter wurde vor wenigen Tagen geboren. Die anderen acht Kinder hat Nanu Ram Jogi mit seinen anderen Frauen, das erste wurde 1943 geboren. Der rüstige Rentner wohnt in dem Dorf Paanchimli im Westen Indiens mit 109 Familienmitgliedern zusammen, darunter 20 Enkelkinder.

Dr. Pratap Bhanu Mehta

President and Chief Executive, Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi

 

“The Constitution of Property in Modern India”

Dr. Mehta holds a B.A.(Philosophy, Politics and Economics) from Oxford University and Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University. He was previously Visiting Professor of Government at Harvard University and Associate Professor of Government and of Social Studies at Harvard. He was also Professor of Philosophy and Law and Governance, JNU. He has published widely in reputed national and international journals in a variety of fields including, political philosophy, intellectual history, constitutional law, international politics, society and politics in India. His most recent book are “The Burdens of Democracy” and “Public Institutions in India: Performance and Design”. He has been a prolific contributor to public debates and his columns have regularly appeared in The New Republic, Foreign Policy, The Hindu, Indian Express, Telegraph, Yale Global, and numerous other papers. He has served as Editorial Consultant to the Indian Express. He is co-editor of The Oxford Companion to Politics in India (forthcoming), and serves on the editorial board of numerous journals.

Dr. Mehta’s current research projects center around four themes. The first is understanding India’s Great Transformation, the profound social, political and economic changes of the last two decades, and the trajectory they are likely to take in the future. This will result in a book. The second project looks at the role of law in Indian society. It will specifically focus on the justiciability of social and economic rights, and whether judicial intervention is a good means of achieving those objectives. This project will result in a series of papers. The third project – a collaborative project-related to the first two is on Globalization and the Indian State, that looks at the legitimacy challenges facing the Indian State in an era of globalization. The fourth project continues Mehta’s long standing interest in philosophical ethics and explores what it means to lead an examined life. In addition Mehta will continue to perform the role of loyal opposition and engage the public and government through columns on topical issues.

International Spiritual Experience Retreats…

(seen on 31st Aug 2007 at http://www.myspace.com/randomactskindness)

International Spiritual Retreats will be hosting a retreat this October 16-23, 2007 on the island of Mallorca, Spain. We will be scheduling workshops and activities such as yoga and meditation throughout the week and will also take two tours. One will be on land to sacred sites and the other will be by boat. The land tour will include trips to sites with high energy that psychic, Vicki Monroe will tap into to connect us with the past history and people who once lived in these places. We will also have some free time, just to relaxand enjoy this special place. Our accommodations will be in a very nice resort on the beach!

We presently have some wonderful workshops by some great speakers and healers, but are looking for more special people to participate and volunteer their time. In the upcoming year and into the future, we will be having many more retreats and special events. We hope to find leaders and healers who we can continue to work and develop with to benefit everyone involved. We want to provide an outlet for your creativity and spiritual gifts to expand to its highest potential. Our mission is to help to raise the consciousness of the world and universe by bringing like-minded people together to combine our energy for the healing support of all existence.

If you are interested in investing your time and talent to volunteer to lead workshops or even just to be with us and participate by being present, we welcome you! We also can give you discounts for bringing friends. Please see our websites for more information.
