Premier Padmini taxis, first introduced to the streets of Mumbai in the 1960s, have now all but disappeared following the introduction of laws to reduce pollution in the city. Locally known as 'Kaali-Peeli', there were once more than 60,000 of these iconic black and yellow cabs struggling through the chaos of Mumbai's streets. Over a four year period Dougie Wallace documented these elaborate Bollywood disco bars on wheels. The crowded streets of Mumbai and the assortment of passengers provide a dynamic and intense backdrop, as do the cabs themselves. Many are pimped with large speakers in the boot that blast out Bollywood hits, or are colourfully decorated inside with posters of Bollywood actresses, upholstered in loud hypnotic patterns, or feature Hindu gods and goddess on the dashboard.

Ignatius Chithelen views himself as a goat rather than as an Asian Tiger - he read Dostoevsky instead of mastering calculus, while in college in Mumbai. Though he got six degrees, his going to college was perhaps an accident. He provides an unorthodox road map for changing careers, while discussing his jobs. He moved from journalism in Mumbai and New York to investment research at SoGen fund. It was run by a Frenchman who was a rare boss on Wall Street. As he discusses his education, Chithelen offers insights into how a series of competitive exams enables India to produce world class engineers, doctors and chief executives, while 15% of the college graduates in the country are unemployed. He analyzes the puzzle of winning Indian political elections, which is based on shifting alliances between five religious, four caste and 22 major language groups. This is also a story of Chithelen losing Santa Claus in Mumbai; fearing arrest during Indira Gandhi's State of Emergency; being saved from drowning; finding his lost briefcase, with $3,880, left in a New York cab; and learning to overcome writer's block at the journalism school.

Content Analysis Of 'disability Communication' ...
43,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this book I have endeavoured to show how we can plan a comparative study of the the content analysis of few newspaper dailies. This has the power to increase the significance of research process using content analysis and comparison. I have made in this book an attempt to study and compare the 'disability communication' as available in four great dailies, published from Mumbai. Among the English dailies, The Times of India, The Indian Express, The Hindustan Times and The DNA (Daily News Analysis) are four major English daily newspapers published from Mumbai and in several metros in India. Circulation figures indicate that Times of India is the highest, with 2 million readerships. Indian Express has the largest number of editions in India. Hindustan Times has the single largest edition from New Delhi and DNA (Daily News Analysis) is the Mumbai's fastest growing newspaper. Hence all these four dailies were selected for the research study. This book will benefit the students and professionals in the field of Journalism, Media Management and those dealing with Persons with Disabilities for creating awareness on disability issues.
