Love and Marriage in Mumbai: Elizabeth Flock
A child cares for a family of pigeons nesting in his balcony; is his parents´ relationship as diseased as the illness ravaging the baby pigeons? A man mulls over desire engendered by love and that which springs from mere lust. A couple confesses to the reader the reasons for the widening chasm between them. An intricate mesh of relationships and lives, Thirteen Kinds of Love follows the fortunes of several families living and working in an apartment block in Mumbai. This is a book about loving and losing, about trying to redeem oneself, about attempts to remake and refashion what has been torn asunder. Soumya Bhattacharya draws the reader into the narrative using his deeply evocative, distinctive prose. This is an astute exploration of how we live and love today.

Jamal Malik bekommt die Chance seines Lebens: Der Junge aus den Slums von Mumbai hat in der indischen Fernsehshow Who Wants to Be a Millionaire die Möglichkeit, 20 Millionen Rupien zu gewinnen. Danny Boyles mit acht Oscars prämierter Film eignet sich nicht nur aufgrund der sprachlichen und kulturellen Besonderheiten (code-switching, indische Varietät des Englischen, Indien dargestellt aus der Perspektive des britischen Regisseurs) sehr gut für den Einsatz im Englischunterricht. Zugleich können eine breite Palette cineastischer Mittel (flashbacks, cross-cutting, motifs) sowie die vielfältigen Anknüpfungspunkte an curriculare Vorgaben (post-colonialism, present-day India, globalisation, Parallelen zum American Dream) aufgegriffen werden. Der Film ist insbesondere für den Einsatz in der Oberstufe geeignet. Dieses Unterrichtsmodell liefert einen praxisorientierten Leitfaden zur Behandlung im Unterricht.

As globalization alters our relationship to food, photographer Gregg Segal has embarked on a global project asking kids from around the world to take his ´´Daily Bread´´ challenge. Each child keeps a detailed journal of everything they eat in a week, and then Segal stages an elaborate portrait of them surrounded by the foods they consumed. The colorful and hyper-detailed results tell a unique story of multiculturalism and how we nourish ourselves at the dawn of the 21st century. From Los Angeles to Sao Paulo, Dakar to Hamburg, Dubai to Mumbai we come to understand that regardless of how small and interconnected the world seems to become each year, diverse pockets of traditional cultures still exist on each continent, eating largely the same way they have been for hundreds of years. It is this rich tapestry that Segal captures with care and appreciation, showcasing the page-after-page charm of Daily Bread. Contrasted with the packaged and processed foods consumed primarily in developed nations, questions about health and sustainability are raised and the book serves as a catalyst for consideration of our status quo. There´s an old adage, ´´The hand that stirs the pot rules the world.´´ Big Food is stirring the pot for children all over the world. Nonetheless, there are regions and communities where slow food will never be displaced by junk food, where home-cooked meals are the bedrock of family and culture, and where love and pride are expressed in the aromas of stews and curries.
