China Myths Debunked
WE all know the facts: In 1949 when the Communist Party took over, China had been mired in civil wars and dismembered by foreign aggressions; its people had suffered widespread famine; average lifeexpectancy was a mere 41 years. Today, it is the second largest economy in the world, a great power with global influence, and its people live in increasing prosperity; average life expectancy has reached 74 years. But the assessment has to go deeper than that, for reasons none other than the apparent discomfort, if not outright disapproval, Western political and intellectual elites feel toward the Communist Party´s leadership.

PETER Oborne, writing in the conservative Daily Telegraph, recently suggested that the Conservative British Prime Minister, David Cameron, was not merely in a mess, he "is in a sewer."

South Indian playback singers to perform today


DOHA POPULAR South Indian film stars and playback singers will perform in Doha on Thursday.

The four-hour long stage show titled ‘Malabar Gold Chandrolsavam’ will be held at Doha Cinema.

The programme being organised by Daya Qatar, a socio-cultural forum, in association with Ali International will feature melodious songs from South Indian cinema.

Funds generated from the ticket sale will be donated to ‘Thanal’, a charity organisation based in Vadakara in Kozhikod district in the Indian state of Kerala.

The programme will be led by M Jyachandran, a noted music director in Kerala.

In recognition to having participated in the production of 100 films as a music director, Jyachandran will be honoured by Indian Ambassador HE Deepa Gopalan Wadhwa on the occasion.

Speaking at a press conference, Jyachandran said, “It is not just an entertainment show.

The cause of charity behind it has to be promoted.” Also speaking at the media meet, Isa Muhamad, managing director of Ali International, said, “We are happy to collaborate in this programme which is meant to generate funds for a worthy cause.

The show will provide opportunity for Kerala expatriates to enjoy their favourite songs from these famous singers.” Noted actor Sidiqque, however, warned against people pushing their aged parents to the palliative care centres, because of the support they will receive from the show.

Other artistes who attended the press conference were Sidiqque, Sujatha Mohan, Madhu Balakrishnan, Karthik, Swetha Mohan and Chitra Iyer.

Malabar Gold Qatar outlet manager Santhoh, Dr Itris and MV Sirajudeen, president of Daya Qatar, were also present on the occasion.
