Three poems by Ankit Kumar


The deeper I think
The holier I be
Life is a game
Which we all wish to flee

Cogency is what everyone wants
Laconicity respected by none
For peace we say we can’t
Love is now, all for fun

We fell sad for any kind of cide
But it matters for no one
Then why are we petrified
When care for us is done by none

Jealousy, hatred is what mind mounts
Happiness, love, peace, now no one counts

We are angry, burning now
Few want to make things perfect
But they don’t know how

Sleepless nights, somniferous days
They live
Love, love, love is all they
Try to give

The day will come
When we all will die
Try to evolve love
Otherwise a day before
We will cry


Some days come and some pass
The memory get stuck to some
Which always lasts

I remember those days
So what if they were sad
I smile when I think
About the days which were bad

Painful were some,
Neuralgic few
But when I sit alone
It gives me a nostalgic view

Sometimes I stop midway
Don’t feel to think
But it’s always too late
And I fall somewhere in a blink.

I struggle hard to come out
But cannot see any gate
Cry, shout all I try
But there’s no escape from the fate.

But days pass too
And thought dries
All I hear now is
No more cries.

I remember those days
Yes, they were happy
Still thinking of those memories
Pain and sadness ensembles in my gallery


Opened eyes but nothing seen
Blindness that covers me within
Droplet of water that flows down
Have some painful memories which it surrounds

The mistake was made
Long time back
Why do I regret now?
Sea of guilt has reached my neck
I feel low
I feel low
I feel low

Yes, the mistake was mine
I took that blow
But now things appears to be fine
Then why do I feel so low

Things were different then
Indifferent now
I was sad then
Not so much happy now

The path of life has been narrow
Which always had some glibness
It gave me lots of sorrow
With a life, spiritless

With these situations, now I cope
But things will alter soon
I keep inside a light of hope
Hope to see a new moon

The Veteran Film Maker K. Balachander Conferred the Dadasaheb Phalke Award

The President, Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil has said cinema was a very powerful medium for conveying messages and it was necessary for promoting constructive and value based thinking for a culturally rich country like ours. This medium imposed a great responsibility on everyone associated with the film industry to use the power of cinema to do good for society, through the portrayal of attitudes that help in building a tolerant and harmonious society. The President Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil stated this while delivering her address at the 58th National Film Awards function here today.

Elaborating further, the President, Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil, stated that creativity knows no barrier of age and that the human spirit has always been striving for excellence. The awards received by 5 young artistes and an award for best writing in cinema to Ms. Vijay Mulay at her 90 years of age was an encouraging fact, this would surely inspire and motivate young film makers to give their greatest possible expression through this powerful medium.

Regarding the potential of the Indian film industry, the President stated the Indian film market has become more attractive for foreign film houses.  At the same time, prominent Indian enterprises are also participating in producing and distributing films around the world.  India’s soft power was engaged in projecting the nation world wide and Indian cinema had found markets in a large number of countries.

Speaking on the occasion, the Minister for Information & Broadcasting, Smt. Ambika Soni said that the Government had moved forward in setting up the National Film Heritage Mission with an outlay of Rs.660 crores.  This Mission would provide a platform for comprehensive solutions for cataloging, dissemination and monetization of film content, video tapes, posters and other related materials in the possession of either the Film Wing of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting or with the various State Governments as well as with private individuals and institutions.  The greatest benefit of the Mission would be to enable the preservation of the invaluable filmic heritage of the country which is an integral part of our socio-cultural heritage.  3000 films will be acquired and digitized and 3000 films will be restored and transferred to inter-negatives under the scheme and will be available at affordable rates as DVDs to public for viewing.

Elaborating further the Minister said, the year 2013 would mark the centenary year of Indian Cinema.  This centenary would be a milestone in India’s cinematic journey that needs to be showcased and celebrated.  The Minister added, the Centenary celebrations would provide the country an excellent opportunity to exhibit India’s ‘soft power’ on a global scale and reinforce the idea of “Cinemas of India” alongwith the “Incredible India” campaign. As part of the Centenary celebrations, the National Museum of Indian Cinema, a first of its kind in India, would showcase the evolution of Indian Cinema, which is being built in Mumbai and is expected to be inaugurated during the centenary year celebrations.

Regarding skill development in the film sector, the Minister said that the two Institutes under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, namely, Film and Television Institute (FTII), Pune and Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute (SRFTI), Kolkata were being upgraded to cater to the ever-increasing, highly skilled and specialized manpower requirement of the film and TV industry.  Measures were being taken to declare these two Institutes, as Institutions of National Importance through an Act of the Parliament.

The Minister added that the winners of the awards in various categories had reinforced the belief in the motto of the National Film Awards that there was only one recognition “GOOD CINEMA”. The ‘Good Cinema’ provided a platform for film centres to emerge all over the country thereby reflecting the vibrant socio cultural identity of our country in the realm of cinema.

Tagore National Fellowship for Cultural Research Modified

The Ministry of Culture introduced in November, 2009, a new scheme by the name of “Visiting Fellows in Art, Culture & Heritage”. Later, to mark the Commemoration of the 150th Birth Anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore, the scheme was renamed as “Tagore National Fellowship for Cultural Research”.

The objective of this prestigious scheme was to invigorate and revitalize the various institutions under the Ministry of Culture which have vast ‘treasures’ in the form of manuscripts, documents, artifacts, antiquities and paintings. It was meant to encourage serious researches into our cultural resources so that the nation stands to benefits from the results. Museums, for instance, could hardly display more than a small percentage of their entire holdings and they could use this scheme to encourage research and analysis of the objects that are not usually available for public viewing or use.

Under the scheme, scholars of iconic stature were to be invited to devote 2 years of their time to pursue research in one or more of the 17 cultural institutions covered by the scheme, so as to produce a valuable work based on the resources available in the institutions, to make those known to the wider public. In all, 13 scholars were selected as Tagore National Fellows, in the first cycle of selections. Details of selected Fellows are attached.

During the course of meetings of the NSC in which these 13 Tagore National Fellows were selected, members felt that, to prove more effective, the Scheme needed certain improvements, and made various suggestions in this regard. Based on the suggestions made by the NSC, Ministry of Culture has issued a modified scheme of Tagore National Fellowship for Cultural Research.

Following are the highlights of the modified Scheme:

1) While the existing scheme covers only 17 institutions under the Ministry of Culture (MoC), including one supported by it, the modified scheme will cover 29 MoC institutions, including all the three National Akademies and seven Zonal Cultural Centres.

2) Apart from Ministry’s own institutions, the modified scheme will also cover other selected institutions that are not under the Ministry of Culture, but have cultural resources waiting to be explored. While eight such institutions stand covered by the modified scheme announced today, other Non-MoC institutions that seek to take advantage of this scheme will be free to approach the Ministry of Culture for their inclusion. Such institutions whose name is approved by the NSC will keep getting included in the scheme.

3) All the 13 Fellows selected in the first round of selections, were selected by the NSC from out of the applications received for the Fellowship. Since it was felt that many top-grade scholars are reluctant to apply as non-acceptance of their application may harm their reputation, the modified scheme lays a greater emphasis on ‘Search and Invitation’ mode of selection.

4) In the first two rounds of its meetings, NSC felt that there are many scholars who are not of iconic stature but have a standing and can do research projects that may be very useful to the cultural institutions in disseminating their resources. Hence, the modified scheme incorporates a second category of scholars, to be known as Tagore Research Scholars, who will be paid a monthly honorarium of Rs. 50,000/- as against the honorarium of Rs. 80,000/- per month payable to Tagore National Fellows. Under this category, upto 25 awards will be given in a year. These will be in addition to 15 Tagore National Fellowships to be awarded each year.

5) Since the scheme seeks to employ the best of scholars in the field, some more flexibility has been built into the scheme. For instance, the Fellowship slots that cannot be filled in a particular financial year can now be carried forward to the immediate next financial year. Provisions relating to publication of research work resulting from the award of the Fellowship have also been made more flexible, to make co-publications possible.

6) Many provisions of the existing scheme have been elaborated to bring in greater clarity. For example, the modified scheme makes it explicitly clear that if a member of the Institutional Level Committee or the National Selection Committee applies for the Fellowship, he/she will not be invited to the Committee meeting in which his/her own case comes up for consideration and, in the event of his/her selection, such member will stand dissociated from the Committee.

The Ministry of Culture has invited applications/nominations, with 30th June, 2011 as the cut off date for receipt of applications for selections in the current cycle.

FUEL Punjabi Meet : A move to standardize Punjabi Computing terminology

FUEL Punjabi is an initiative to standardize the translated terms of Punjabi language used in the interface of the Punjabi computer programs. FUEL Punjabi Meet is being organized on 4th and 5th of March in Ludhiana. The first of this kind of meet, FUEL Punjabi Meet for Punjabi language computing terminology is being hosted by Punjabi Sahit Academy, Ludhiana. A community project, FUEL Project is organizing this event in association with Punjabi Linux Technology Group, the community involved in the localization of Linux desktop and other important software of Punjabi. The Meet would greatly enhance the usability of the Punjabi desktop.

In this meet, group of people from several field like technology, translation, localization, journalism, language will gather together to discuss on the entries that are being used frequently by computer users and they will make consensus in the meet about the terminology. This group of people will discuss around 600 entries selected from most used applications like browser, email client, editor, office-suit, messenger etc. At the end of the meet, the group will release the list called FUEL Punjabi list as an standardized lsit that can be used a a reference point for Punjabi localization.

Prior to this FUEL Punjabi Meet, FUEL has successfully organized seven languages meet for different languages of India.  FUEL (https://fedorahosted.org/fuel) aims at solving the problem of inconsistency and lack of standardization in computer software translation across the platform for all languages. FUEL  (Frequently Used Entries for Localization) Project is run by a community of volunteers who love to work together with a common task of making native desktop more usable for the end user. The FUEL project is initiated by Red Hat. In a short span of time, FUEL has got support and participation of organization like Sarai, C-DAC, Acharya Nagarjuna University, IndLinux, A. N. Sinha Institute of Socail Studies, Maithili Academy, Gujarati Lexicon, Infineon Infotech, NRCFOSS, SICSR, Gnunify, PLUG, SMC etc. Open Source Communities of languages like Chhattisgarhi (hne), Gujarati (gu) , Hindi (hi), Maithili (mai), Malayalam (ml), Marathi (mr), Punjabi (pa), Oriya (or), Tamil (ta), and Telugu (te) have given full fledged support to FUEL project. FUEL project is currently hosted and being maintained at fedorahosted.org. Till now, seven different workshops for seven languages have been organized by language communities in the different part of India. Acceptability and use of the project is also increasing day by day. For example, FUEL is used as the primary terminology reference in Virtaal tool for Indian languages. Also, FUEL is used for several languages in Pootle. Pootle is an online translation management tool with translation interface. FUEL project started with the idea to create standard terminology for Frequently Used Entries for Localization and so it is named as FUEL. Terminology was the primary concern. But later on, it was understood that merely creating terminological resources is not an end in itself. There should be one language wise style and convention guide. Particularly in open content field, communities lack these resources and so they get trouble in localizing any content in their own language. FUEL Hindi community is now engaged in creating style and convention guide for computer localization.
