July 2010: Days and Dates to Remember

July
5    Koel-Karo Day/ World Tibet Day
11  World Population Day
26  Cuban Revolution Day

"Why are narratives of movements always linear? Why do they always present one 
story? What about the plural narratives that exists among the participants of the 
movement? And what about writing about movements, representing the plurality 
of narratives? A woman thinks differently from a man, a younger man thinks 
differently from an elder woman, so on and so forth.

And actually there are several cases in the country. Including in fact Niyogi’s CMSS, 
and an effort was made to try and present the plural narratives from the ground, 
both as a critique to the linear academic, scholarly narratives – not demeaning them
necessarily, but saying that there are different way in which people’s life stories, 
people’s struggles, and life could be ‘written about’."

(Smitu Kothari, March 2009)


"If you tremble with indignation at every injustice then you are a comrade of mine."



"Let the world change you and you can change the world"


"Silence is argument carried out by other means."


"And then many things became very clear... we learned perfectly that the life of a single human being is worth millions of times more than all the property of the richest man on earth."



"Be realistic, demand the impossible!"

(Che Guevara)
