Reader!

To Beach News readers from all over the world, hello! Well, to make things clear I am getting married this month, the first in my family. I am looking forward to that day the 17th of September. I find my self very happy and very lucky too. Christiana, my future wife, is an inteligent and wonderfull person. I come from a traditional Greek family with a South African mother and growing up in Cyprus, the pressures of getting married as soon as you finish your studies, is a force felt only in the battlefield. Not once, will you speak with your grand parents, aunties, uncles, all sort of relatives with out them reminding you that it’s time to get settled, and give grandchildren to your mother, even though you do not have a full time job, or you come home early in the morning from parties every night. It’s unbelievable some times, because taking the decision to get married has to do with you and you only - or accepting a proposal. Unfortunately some times I feel that I am doing it for them, to satisfy their ambitions. I really don’t understand it. Why so much pressure to do something everyone is trying to get free from. See the high rates of divorces. Inviting people for the wedding is supposed to be a pleasant moment. It’s a time you share happy news with people you know. To be honest, I have not given out one invitation with out receiving a first comment that actually stresses me. They all say phrases such as “don’t do it”, “are you crazy?”, “welcome to the club”, “now you will see what its all about” etc. What is every ones problem actually with their partner? Is getting married such a tragedy at the end of the day? I know that there are two sides to the problem, that of the boys and that of the girls, and I will have to find out myself, through time, the answers to my question. I could live with that, I will take my chances. To all of you out there have fun, enjoy your stay on the island, enjoy the autumn weather that is much better and friendlier. Take care in the sun with your protection and remember on the 17th to have a drink wishing me and Christiana health, happiness and long life together... forever. Thanks.

Cyprus History & Culture KTHMA KEO

Vines & Wines

T

he picturesque southern slope of the Troodos mountain range is the home of a lifetime project. Set near the village of Mallia, the KEO winery represents both the island’s tradition in winemaking and the development of new technological viniculture and vinification processes. The art of winemaking requires experience, care and imagination. The combination of these elements together with the area’s terroir and KEO’s scientific know-how is the basis for the creation of unique

quality wines. The KEO winery in Mallia lies in the heart of 1,000 hectares of cultivated landscape where some of the best grape varieties, are grown. Its historic buildings, which date back to 1927, were refurbished preserving its architecture and folklore. The winery is used for systematic research and development of Cyprus indigenous grape varieties that due to their scarcity were threatened with extinction. The traditional vinification methods

are well adjusted to state of the art technology. The vineyards were planted to allow mechanical harvesting. The grapes are vinified in stainless steel vats, therefore retaining their natural aroma and taste. The KEO winery in Mallia, the island’s largest-boutique winery, is now the home of the entire KEO wine portfolio. Pioneering a new generation of premium Cyprus wines, three flagship brands, born in the winery are named after the estate. KTHMA KEO (Red) is a beautifully

balanced, rich red dry wine that combines the cassis fruit of a good Cabernet with a warmer, bramble style from the Lefkada and a deft touch of spicy, new oak. KTHMA KEO (White) is an elegant dry wine, combining the rich citrus scents with lifted aromas of fresh lemon zest and smoky white peaches of a good Chardonnay. The newest addition to the family, KTHMA KEO (Rose) is the result of a harmonious combination of a red and a white grape variety, that were blended together after fermentation. Cabernet Sauvignon

and Sauvignon Blanc have created a bright ruby dry rose wine, fresh on the nose with aromas of strawberries and cherries. These three KTHMA KEO wines have been decorated with awards and medals at numerous competitions both locally and overseas. The KTHMA KEO winery is open for visits daily, Monday to Friday, from 9:00am to 2:30pm for guided tours and free wine testing. For group bookings, the winery can be contacted at 25-942131. www.keogroup.com


Yes, we have done a major overhaul. It was necessary, but all along keeping an eye on the main topic of keeping the traditional theme. It’s good that you are keeping the local tradition.

HONDROS TAVERN SINCE 1953

A

ndy and Jenny met each other while Andy was studying Fine Arts and Sculpture and Jenny was studying Radiography in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. Andy opened “The Wooden Horse” a coffee shop near the University to fund his studies, which is where they met. They married in Nicosia in 1967, and a few months later returned to South Africa where they opened “The Castle Inn”, a restaurant and beer garden in Johannesburg. In 1972, they moved to Cyprus, settled down in Famagusta, when their lives were disrupted with the 1974 Turkish invasion, forcing them to return to South Africa. There, Jenny and Andy’s two sisters Lya and Maro, opened a Greek restaurant “The Three Sisters” in Johannesburg. Andy and Jenny returned to Paphos permanently, with their four children in 1980, where they took over the restaurant form its original owner Kokos “Hondros” (meaning the fat man) and kept the name and its tradition. They have been running it ever since. Andy simultaneously had many successful art exhibitions, won first prize at the International Biennale in Cairo, as well as writing three books of which the first was awarded with the State’s Literature Prize. The Hadjiadamos

Yes, not only the structure and furniture but the menu too has maintained its Cypriot taste. It is essential in this area for Cypriots and visitors, because so much has been lost of our local colour with the rapid development. What are your specialities? The menu. All our recipes derive from advice and help from family, mothers, aunts, cousins, etc, a lot of tasting and testing, it’s a continuous exercise in our kitchen. Our main menu stresses Cypriot specialities and seasonal foods such as Mousaka, Afelia, Yemista, Sheftalia and many more. We always cook Souvla and Suckling Pig of Feast Days with the related soups and side dishes. And in the background old and new Greek music complimenting our authentic atmosphere. What does the future hold for you? Hard work, attention to detail and, of course, taking care of our valued customers. Any dreams? Yes, we all hope to get financial sponsorship to help create a gallery to house the extraordinary works of Andy Hadjiadamos in Paphos so as to share his creativity with one and all.

olf is a relatively new game to the island of Cyprus, but is fast becoming a popular sport for almost everyone to enjoy. This trend can be argued, was influenced by the x-patriot community in the island, as well as, all those thousands of tourist-lovers of the sport, especially since Golf entered the Olympic Games officially. People in Cyprus realise that, this is a sport, which the whole family can learn together, especially on a driving range with a much more relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Playing golf, even with the various aspects of the game, it is actually easier than you think. It consists of playing a ball from the teeing ground into a hole on a green area marked by a flag. This is done in various ways depending on the length of the hole, which is defined by the distance from ‘tee’ to ‘green’. Each player is allowed up to 13 clubs and a putter (used on the green to guide the ball into the hole). Each club plays its part as the game of golf unfolds. All these skills can be practiced on a driving range to develop and improve a player’s ability before playing on any golf course. It is important therefore, to know what to practice. Each person is able to obtain a handicap by completing a number

Better Than Sex Cake INGREDIENTS: 1 (18 1/4 ounce) package dark chocolate cake mix 1 1/3 cups water (or as directed in cake directions) 1/2 cup vegetable oil (or as directed in cake directions) 3 eggs (or as directed in cake directions) 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 1 (8 -12 ounce) jarMrs Richardson’s caramel topping or 1 (8 -12 ounce) jar butterscotch topping 8 ounces whipped topping (Extra Creamy Dream Whip is good) 2 Heath candy bars, crushed (Skor bars or Nestle’s Heath bits will also work, if you can find them) Method: Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and lightly flour 13” x 9” cake pan. Mix cake as directed on package.Bake the cake about 35 minutes or until it tests done.As soon as it comes out of the oven, poke holes all over it with a fork (I actually use a small diameter chop stick) and pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over the cake, followed by caramel sauce (microwaved about one minute until warm and easily pourable - I use only about 10 oz of the jar). Refrigerate overnight. Shortly before serving, spread whipped topping over cake and sprinkle with crushed Heath bars (or bits).

of rounds, which are marked on a scorecard by a member of the golf club. There are currently three golf courses in Cyprus, all in the area of Paphos. These are Minthis Hills, Secret Valley and Aphrodite Hills. Opening soon is ‘Elia’ golf course, designed by Nick Faldo. If we include the ‘Paphos Golf Driving Range & Academy’ we come to the conclusion that residents and tourists alike, have all the facilities to enjoy one of the greatest sporting challenges – GOLF! Because of the handicap system in golf, players at different levels can play a competitive game. This system allows men, women, and children to compete against each other; therefore, anyone of any age group can enjoy this fascinating game. Often frustrating, always demanding, golf is a worldwide-recognised sport, as a uniquely compelling game. One thing is for sure: once you played for the first time, you just want to play it again and again. This is why, by offering the facilities where residents and tourists can share their love for the game, will only enrich the products this island has to offer.

Rioting UK 2011

Universal Summer of Discontent By David R. Walker (Southboy)

Rough copy In the build up to South Africa’s first democratic elections in April 1994, the world watched expecting a riot, a racial civil war which never quite materialized. There was a bumpy transitional phase racked by political in fighting, but generally speaking South Africa’s change to a democracy was largely recognized as peaceful. In the latter years of the 1990’s many white South Africans left their own country for job opportunities abroad mostly in the UK, once South Africa was readmitted to the commonwealth. I had the privilege of working in the UK myself from 1997 to late 1999 and lived in a variety of London suburbs from Brixton to Turnpike Lane, close to Tottenham. Whilst living in Brixton in the winter of 1997, a policeman knocked on my door one particularly cold night and asked if I had heard of any disturbance in the block of flats as a woman was raped in the stairwell the previous night. Like all metropolitan cities with a high population density, London has wealthy areas, middle-class suburbs and poorer boroughs noted by their 1970’s styled sprawling and less salubrious council estates rising to an often grey and cloudy sky. So fast forward 12 years to August 2011, it is ironic that the

headlines for a Durban morning newspaper, should read “SA Expats fight back against UK mob rule”. Images of burning buildings in Tottenham and Croydon, of rioting on London streets and other major UK cities from Birmingham to Manchester flashed across international news channels. As stock market’s rally against a European debt crisis, America’s credit rating is downgraded, Somalia starves and Syria crackdowns on protestors as violent remnants of the Arab spring continue, which saw uprisings start in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain and Yemen and proceed unabated in Syria and Libya. As civil war continues in Libya, London’s boroughs flare up in the worst urban violence in decades as shops are smashed, buildings burned and looted all pointing to a universal summer of discontent. Even the British Prime Minister David Cameron had to cut short his Tuscan holiday to return to a broken Britain and convene an emergency Parliamentary meeting. Social media is rife with comments about the London violence with Twitter and Facebook messages reflecting a double edged sword of caution and encouragement. Many of the recent London riots were co-ordinated attacks

planned through Blackberry messenger, which is encrypted and not available on the more public social media platforms. There are calls in some London boroughs to block Blackberry messenger after dark, even to impose a curfew in some parts of the UK. At the Prime Minister’s insistence, the Metropolitan police forces in London, Birmingham and Manchester has been visibly strengthened to quell the riots and prevent any further social unrest. The irony about this social unrest in the UK is that after the storm, many of the protestors can go back to their council flats in Peckham, Hackney and Tottenham and claim social welfare and continue living off a state which effectively aids their existence. South Africans who moved abroad to the UK thinking it was safer than staying in crime ridden South Africa, were

caught unaware by the mindless violence of the recent August London riots. But no one is immune to watching violence and looting whether in London, Cairo or Mogadishu unless the population is absolutely desperate for food. The hooded British youths weren’t hungry they were blatantly stealing electronic merchandise while looting London stores, burning buildings and escaping the dumb-founded British police. While social media has been the spark for many civil unrests in North Africa, the middle East and now in the UK, the riotous 2011 spring and summer of these northern hemisphere countries pales in comparison to the real tragedy which is occurring in Somalia, with widespread famine, food riots and political instability crippling Mogadishu. South Africa has donated R2 million rand in aid to the famine in Somalia and

has been one of the first countries to actively be helping starving masses in Mogadishu while many South African expats in the UK bandied together through Twitter-interface collaboration to clean up the streets of Clapham and similarly affected London boroughs. Once winter grips the northern hemisphere, will the summer of discontent come to an end? What is evident that like 1968, 2011 is a watershed year for social upheaval globally, but as autumn approaches, the world will have to take stock of the summer of discontent and uncover the fundamental reasons which brought such chaotic protest? Those reasons are diverse and fluid, but beckon to a shift to a dynamic, explosive and digitized new world order as the 21st century hopefully reaches its maturity.

“Can I lose weight with Yoga?

” ... the problem with today’s mindset After spending 3 months in India where I got to focus on my Ashtanga Yoga practice, my therapies, breathing techniques and to read up more on the fusion of Eastern and Western philosophies I came to Cyprus to see my family. One of the most frequent questions I’ve been asked here is “Can I lose weight with Yoga?” When the question reaches my ears I have images of the world famous Ashtanga shala KPJAYI, also known as the Source of Ashtanga, where I practiced for 3 months. Images of very sweaty practitioners from all levels, all backgrounds, complete beginners to very advanced, from accountants to Olympic boxers to ballet dancers to Economists in the Pentagon to chefs to school teachers. People of all sizes, colours, religions and ages practising together, next to each other, focusing on their own personal physical and mental development. Looking at more advanced practitioners one cannot but help notice the lean form, from the biggest to even the smallest muscles being very well defined, super strength and super flexibility conditioned together to unify body and mind. One only needs to type “Ashtanga yoga” in Youtube and check the likes of David Swenson, Kino Macgregor or Govinda Kai to witness the physical benefits of Ashtanga. However those images quickly fade from my mind as sadness, disappointment and frustration take over as soon as the question is asked. What do I answer when the point of reference is wrong in the first place? We live in a society ruled by numbers, how much fat to loose, how much muscle to gain, what percentage fat do I have, how many calories is that, how many calories an activity burns....and the list goes on, and on, and on. And in the process we have lost the one thing that automatically has those answers without overloading our already crammed up minds. We have lost communication with our bodies. We have lowered the volume of that voice so low that we rely on outside numbers and diets and personal trainers and doctors to tell us what we already know inside our bodies. We are not in tune anymore. Like a baby knows when it wants to eat, how much, how often or when to sleep you once knew also. But somewhere along the line you have forgotten. We can regurgitate how we have forgotten to communicate with our bodies, we can again blame our stressful lives to sustain our masks. But that is not my aim. The question is not “Can I lose weight with X type of exercise?”... the question is “Do I feel good when I do that? Do I feel happy, stronger...do I feel Alive?” When one is hungry and has something to eat, one knows when he has overeaten, when gluttony has overtaken and the gut, stomach and liver are overloaded with work. Same applies the other way round; one knows when the body is undernourished, weak and in need of energy. Or maybe we don’t; we have numbed our instincts and lowered that voice so far down, raising future generations with the same mindset, that we now have to relearn to speak the language of the body. Switch the TV set off for 15 minutes and sit there in silence, no judgement, just observing and listening to what it is that body has to say; maybe nothing; maybe everything, in time it will speak the same way it speaks through disease or the feel good factor. The body has its own language. In the sheer volume of rubbish things we have to do in our day to day lives this is surely not that crazy. Maybe it’s time we start speaking with our bodies, maybe it’s time we started listening, away from numbers, the “rights and wrongs” of diets, the exercise fads. When I came from India many people in Cyprus and London asked me “Isn’t India the land of contradictions?” And when I look at the West I see just as many contradictions; I open a magazine with an article on anorexia next to ads on how to lose weight, I see ads on makeup with the slogan “Love yourself”, make-up that is loaded with cancerous lead and toxins. I can find as many contradictions in the West as I have found in India. So the question shouldn’t be “Can I loose weight with Yoga?”. The question should be “Does Yoga/ running/ climbing/ swimming make me feel good?” Focus on the feel good factor and your decisions on food, exercise, sleep will slowly slowly start falling into place. The effort shouldn’t go in the body first, the effort should go into the mind first and then into the body. Can you speak the language of your body so you can slowly take control of your personal Matrix intuitively, instinctively, free from numbers and rules? From my experience, it is a ride worth taking. Namaste.

F.D.A. Affirms Safety of Breast Implant

Smart Choices

B y G A R D INER H A RRIS

WASHINGTON — After two days of discussion and testimony about silicone breast implants, a top government health official said he had heard nothing to shake his faith in the safety of the widely used implants.

The official, Dr. William Maisel, chief scientist for the Food and Drug Administration’s

poor job of studying patients who got the implants, as the F.D.A. required them to do. “And without proper data, we still don’t know how safe or effective they are and whether there are certain patients at risk for extremely negative outcomes,” Ms. Zuckerman said. Dr. Maisel agreed that the studies conducted by the two companies had failed to follow as many patients as the agency had hoped. One purpose of this week’s meeting was to ask the expert panel what the agency and the two companies should do about that poor follow-up. Some suggested that patients should be paid for participating; others mentioned that doctors should get some money, too. There was some criticism of the 27-page research form that patients who participate in the study are required to complete and whether it could be shortened. Nearly all expressed hope that a registry could be created that would follow all breast implant patients, but such registries are expensive to maintain and complicated to create.

Center for Devices, said silicone breast implants were safe.

The committee also agreed that patients should no longer be told that they should get a magnetic resonance imaging test three years after getting implants and every two years following.

“We felt that way before the meeting, and we continue to feel that way after the presentations and discussions over the past two days,” Dr. Maisel said.

The reason for telling patients to get M.R.I.’s is that silicone breast implants sometimes rupture without women being aware, and an M.R.I. can reveal this unseen problem.

There are risks to the implants, however, Dr. Maisel said, including ruptures, a hardening of the area around the implants, the need to remove the implants, scarring, pain, infection and asymmetry. “Women should feel assured that the F.D.A. continues to believe that currently marketed silicone breast implants are safe,” he said.

But many patients ignore the requirements because M.R.I.’s are expensive and it is not clear what they should do when an unseen rupture is discovered; the risks associated with ruptured implants may not be greater than the risks of the operation needed to take them out.

Some patients and women’s groups who testified at the meeting disagreed. Diana Zuckerman, president of the National Research Center for Women and Families, a research and education group, told an expert panel that the two companies that manufacture silicone breast implants — Johnson & Johnson and Allergan — had done a

“F.D.A. continues to believe, as does the panel, that M.R.I. is the gold standard for evaluating breast implants for silent rupture,” Dr. Maisel said. “But there was consensus among the panel that the requirements for ongoing M.R.I.’s should be removed.” Dr. Maisel promised that the F.D.A. would study whether to follow this advice.

B y J A NE E . B RO D Y If you, like me, distrust school cafeterias, you pack homemade lunches for your children, as I did until my sons finished high school. But in the rush to get youngsters up, dressed, fed and off to school on time, the safety of that packed lunch easily can be overlooked. Chances are you worry more about whether your children will eat the food in their lunch boxes than about whether that food will be safe to eat after spending hours unrefrigerated. While there are no statistics on how often schoolchildren are sickened by the lunches they bring from home, it’s far better to be safe than sorry, said Nancy Donley, the president of STOP Foodborne Illness, an advocacy organization. Ms. Donley, who lives in Chicago, knows the risks all too well. In 1993 she lost her only child, 6-year-old Alex, to one of the nastiest food contaminants, E. coli 0157:H7, innocently consumed in store-bought ground meat. Rather than retreat into a fetal position, she channeled her grief and anger into helping others avoid a similar tragedy. According to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in six Americans will be felled by food poisoning this year, with 128,000 hospitalized and 3,000 people dying as a result. Thirty-one organisms are known causes of 9.4 million of these illnesses, but 38.4 million people will be sickened by unknown pathogens. Yet another food poisoning outbreak — of particularly virulent, antibiotic-resistant Salmonella Heidelberg, linked to ground turkey — had spread to 26 states by early August. It took five months to alert the public to the risk. Our extraordinarily complex food supply, with commodities coming in year round from all over the world, has seriously challenged government efforts to keep consumers safe. “Over the years, we’ve made progress in some areas but gone backward in others,” Ms. Donley said in an interview. “With so many deaths and illnesses each year from contaminated foods, there’s still a long way to go.” While organizations like hers press for stricter inspection standards from the government and tighter controls from the food industry, Ms. Donley believes that consumers also must protect themselves as best they can. “It’s important for the public to understand there are risks in food, and it’s up to them to try to mitigate those risks,” she said. And since children are among the most vulnerable to severe consequences of food poisoning, it makes sense to start with the lunches they take to school. Insulated Lunch Boxes A standard rule of food safety is to keep cold foods cold and hot foods hot until it is time to eat them. Temperatures between 40 degrees and 140 degrees, not uncommon in packed lunches that sit in warm classrooms for hours, are ideal conditions for bacterial growth. Insulated lunch boxes can help keep food safer. Worry less about the decorations and more about the construc-

tion. The best box (hard-sided or soft) has an insulated lining and a pocket in which to place a thin freezer pack to help keep the contents cold until they are consumed.

a soapy sponge and hot water as soon as I get them home from the store. If they are held for days unrefrigerated, I wash them again before cutting them open.

An insulated jug (heat it first with boiling water) placed in an insulated lunch box can keep soup, chili or even macand-cheese hot until lunch time.

Ms. Donley also warns parents to discard perishable leftovers. While my children were told to bring home leftovers so I could see what they did not eat, I then threw out everything perishable.

What to put in those boxes? Foods like peanut butter and sliced cheese can tolerate room temperatures without spoiling, especially if insulation is lacking. If peanuts are forbidden in your child’s school, try almond butter — more expensive but more wholesome anyway. Also consider pantry-safe foods packed in easy-to-open containers, like tuna that can be eaten out of a fliptop can, with or without bread. Boxed milk or juice sold unrefrigerated is also a safe bet. And you can freeze these (as well as a water bottle) ahead of time and use them as cold packs; as they defrost, they’ll keep the rest of the lunch chilled. A number of sandwiches — for example, those made with lunch meats, hummus, tuna or egg salad — can be made the night before and frozen as well; they’ll defrost by lunch time. If your child likes lettuce and tomato, pack them separately to be put on the sandwich before eating. If you include cut-up vegetables, be sure they are washed first and packed in a clean container. Dried fruits and whole fruits like apples, bananas, oranges and grapes can round out the meal and can be kept safely at room temperature. But all fresh fruits, even those that will be peeled, must be washed before they are put in the lunch box. A thorough washing is especially important for melons. If the skin is contaminated, the knife can transfer bacteria to the flesh, where they can flourish by lunch time. Ever since cantaloupe was linked to an E. coli outbreak in 2004, I’ve washed all melons, including watermelon, with

Just as it is unwise to consume at any time foods made with raw egg, undercooked poultry or ground meat, or unpasteurized milk, these absolutely should be avoided in a packed lunch. Also, all raw fish, and shellfish that can be safely consumed raw, must always be kept cold. Cleanliness Is Critical Even perfectly safe food can become contaminated by careless storage, preparation and consumption. Perishable foods should be refrigerated as soon as they come home from the store. If you shop with a vehicle, take along a cooler for refrigerated foods, especially in warm weather. Before preparing food, wash your hands with warm water and soap for 20 seconds. Countertops and cutting boards should washed as well; they can be sanitized with a bleach solution (one tablespoon liquid bleach to a gallon of water). For the sake of convenience, I use a spray-on bleach product to clean my countertops and sink, and I wash everything that comes into contact with raw animal products immediately after use. Of course, any surface, utensil or hand that comes into contact with raw meat, poultry, fish or eggs must always be thoroughly cleaned before being used for other foods, including those same foods after they are cooked. Ideally, children should wash up before lunch, but that may not happen when they have only 15 to 20 minutes to eat. Alternatively, put a pocket-size hand sanitizer or moistened antibacterial towelette in the lunch box and instruct them to use it before they eat.

A Dead Hand - A Crime in Calcutta by Paul Theroux

Reviewed by David R. Walker a.k.a. Southboy Paul Theroux turns his languid gaze back to India for his latest self-reflexive novel, A Dead Hand, a Crime in Calcutta following his previous sensational exploration of the Indian subcontinent in The Elephanta Suite. A Dead Hand, a Crime in Calcutta follows the adventures of a travel writer, Jerry Delfont while suffering from writers block is asked by a mysterious American philanthropist Mrs. Unger to investigate an incident involving an Indian friend of her son Charlie. Rajat while staying in a seedy Calcutta hotel wakes up one night to discover a dead boy on the floor next to his bed. Rajat fled the hotel and Delfont upon request from Mrs. Unger returns to the scene of the crime only to discover not a body, but a dead hand. The dead hand symbolically becomes a metaphor for Del-

dilemma of a foreigner examining an ever-shifting and complex country filled with exotic beauty, strict religious rituals, Victorian formality and cruel poverty. Delfont’s adventures take him beyond the confines of the Bengali capital to Mirzapur and Nagapatti in Utter Pradesh uncovering the mystery of the crime and the real motives behind the disappearance of a dead boy from a Calcutta hotel room.

font’s writers block and soon he is caught in the mystery of the incident and the sensual and enigmatic life of Mrs. Unger, whose questionably philanthropy is explored to reveal a far more sinister secret. Theroux’s beautifully evocative prose captures Calcutta or Kolkata as the Indians prefer and the

Part travel journal, part crime thriller, A Dead Hand, A Crime in Calcutta is a thoroughly sensual and absorbing tale of deceit and exploitation in India by the master of Travel writing, Theroux whose novels from Mosquito Coast to Blinding Light have never failed to impress readers worldwide. Highly recommended and suitably gripping.

Film Review t’s like this. It’s always a one horse town, Absolution. If you love Westerns and Aliens films in the tradition of 3:10 to Yuma and all of Sergio Leone’s films like The Good, Bad and the Ugly, you will love Cowboys and Aliens, it’s a cross-genre mix without subtly and it has the star of the James Bond film franchise’s recent acquisition, Daniel Craig looking very out of place in a western. He has Harrison Ford to assist him as the town sheriff. Harrison Ford, ex Solo is there to help against an awfully bizarre alien invasion in Arizona 1873. Together they battle the onslaught of an Alien invasions in outer far west. There are lots of explosions, gunfights and alien invasions but it’s never without some form of retribution. Cowboys and Aliens is entertaining but hugely commercial film with loads of action sequences and lots of gunfights with hard-arsed cowboys and Aliens that are clearly there to see the vulnerability of humans and attempt at most costs to take over the Planet. See Cowboys and Aliens and don’t expect mental stimulation, but loads of popcorn fun. It’s a sleepy hit for the Northern Hemisphere summer season.
