Life inside the Romanian gypsy ghetto

Its strange that you hardly see this in the News,shocking but true,people are  living like this .I am very sure if tis was Africa,all News outlets would have carried this.Anyway something needs to be done.This is the home of about 500 gypsy families in Romania.

Roma are  groups that migrated across Europe , most of them from countries like Romania, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic and are now the biggest ethnic minority in the European Union.There are an estimated 10 million across Europe and one in five lives in Romania.

Since their arrival in Europe from India some 700 years ago, they have been politically, socially, culturally and economically marginalised by the dominant population, who have consistently shown negative social attitudes towards them.

The vast majority live on the margins of society in abject poverty, which makes them easy targets in troubled times.


SlumLimbo: As of February 2013, plans to build modern social housing for the Roma consisting of 500 homes are in limbo, whilst funding is finalized and the search for a suitable site continuesMoved: About 980 Roma lived in Craica before the rehousing started in June. Some 100 families have so far been relocated to three administrative buildings of the former plantHarsh living: The bitter cold weather is difficult for the residents to endure in their make-shift homes

Makeshift home: A woman stands in front of her hut in a shantytown inhabited by Roma or Gypsy people in the Craica neighborhood of Baia Mare, northwestern Romania

Highlights and list of winners from the 2013 Oscars .


The ceremony featured vocal performances from  starslike  Adele, Dame Shirley Bassey, Barbra Streisand, Jennifer Hudson and Russell Crowe.

Daniel Day-Lewis made history at the Oscars this year with the most Best Actor wins ever – three,when he won Best Actor for playing the first US President in Lincoln after previously wining  Best Actor for playing a disabled artist in My Left Foot and a ruthless tycoon in There Will Be Blood.

Daniel has now surpassed  actors like Spencer Tracy, Marlon Brando, Gary Cooper, Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Fredric March, Jack Nicholson and Sean Penn,who had the most number of Best Actor awards that is two  Oscars each until this year .
Jack Nicholson also has three Oscars, but his third is for Best Supporting Actor.

First Lady, Michelle Obama presented from the White House an oscar to  Ben Affleck for  Argo for Best Picture. Affleck won his first Oscar in 1998 for his Good Will Hunting screenplay, written with Matt Damon. He then endured almost a decade of flops and critical derision before making his comeback behind the camera. Accepting the prize for Best Picture last night, he said, “Doesn’t matter how you get knocked down in life; all that matters is you’ve got to get up.”

Argo also became the only the fourth film to win the Academy’s top prize without a corresponding nomination in the directing category.  Ang Lee won his second Oscar for Best Director, for his adaptation of Yann Martell’s Booker Prize-winning novel Life of Pi, winning the most  Oscars ,four in total.

Quentin Tarantino’s  Django Unchained won two Oscars  in the Best Original Screenplay category, and  Best Supporting Actor for  Christoph Waltz, this being his second Oscar.

22 year old Jennifer Lawrence won  Best Actress for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook.  Anne Hathaway won The Best Supporting Actress  for her role  in Les Misérables.

Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, won  just one Oscar, for Sound Editing, which it shared with Skyfall.

That was only the sixth tie in Oscar history. It was also the first award for a film in the Bond franchise since Thunderball won in the Special Visual Effects category in 1966.

Skyfall won two  Oscars, as Adele added to her nine Grammys and four Brits with an Academy Award for Best Original song, which she accepted alongside her “Skyfall” co-writer, Paul Epworth and an Oscar for Sound Editing, which it shared with Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty.

Nomi by Naomi- The Woman Behind The Brand

My Fashion S/ash Life

Jennifer Naomi Spieker, is the designer and founder of the label, Nomi by Naomi, which is based in Amsterdam.

The collection she showed during Africa Fashion Day Berlin, A/W 13, added a splash of vibrant colour to the catwalk.  Models walked down the runway in ensembles that were made predominantly from 100% African Ankara materials. In my opinion, what makes her collection wearable, for even those who are print-shy is amongst the full-blown colourful, printed pieces, there lies pieces that are more subtle in their delivery, for e.g. a denim dress with Ankara print detailing on the collar, or a cream coloured, sheer tunic.  And then there are her bracelets, which I adore- geometric cut-out  bracelets made out of Ankara print which the extrovert can layer up her arm, or which the introvert can use sparingly.

The collection, inspired by the magnificent glow of underwater flowers that shines like a beacon in a dark world, was a hit among city fashionistas.

Modern practicality working in forces of crystal blossom designs, the evening swayed in unanimous ambiguity. Indian actress Shriya Saran, model and Bigg Boss 6 contestant Karishma Kotak and photographer Vikram Bawa, MTv VJ Gaelyn among others upped the fashion quotient.

Designer Nivedeta Saboo too came in to show her support to Amara Fashion house where she exclusively stocks her collection in Mumbai.
