The art of juggling: four classic YouTube videos 23.4.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Gandini Juggling's witty circus show Smashed opens at the Udderbelly in London tonight. To celebrate, here's a selection of clips showing great jugglers operating at full stretch Some years ago at a Devoted and Disgruntled meeting, someone called a session asking whether juggling could ever really be art.

Was it unethical for the St Xavier's College principal Frazer Mascarenhas' to criticise Narendra Modi, ahead of the Mumbai polls? 23.4.2014 DNA: Top News
— ॐ #HDL ॐ (@HinduYoddha) April 23, 2014   Read the full text of Fr Frazer Mascarenhas's letter to students to judge for yourself and tell whether you think it was unethical: The approaching elections have brought an interesting discussion to the public forum on what constitutes human development and how it is to be achieved. The Gujarat model has been highlighted for our consideration. That is very apt because it puts in stark contrast two current views. Is the growth of big business, the making of huge profits, the achievement of high production - what we seek? Or is it the quality of life for the majority in terms of affordable basic goods and services and the freedom to take forward the cultural aspirations of our plural social groups that make up India?

A 75-year-old painter accused of forging works by artists such as Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Willem de Kooning for a $33m fraud scheme in New York appears well placed to avoid prosecution and up to 45 years in prison, as he has moved to China.

Director Andrei Konchalovsky: 'Forget freedom wars and plagues make the best art' 22.4.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
How did an auteur who started out working with Tarkovsky end up being fired from Tango & Cash? Andrei Konchalovsky talks about $90m flops, being mentored by Billy Wilder and killed by Disney Andrei Konchalovsky has only just checked in when I meet him, but he has already commandeered the best seat in the lounge of the Connaught, one of London's swankiest hotels . The 76-year-old Russian director, who in the 1980s enjoyed a productive but brief spell in the Hollywood spotlight, is evidently used to getting his own way. Konchalovsky is here because two Chekhov productions he directed at Moscow's Mossovet theatre Uncle Vanya and Three Sisters are about to open in the West End as part of the Anglo-Russian year of culture . This may not be the most propitious moment for such a cultural exchange, but he is unfazed. "It's nothing new for me," he says. "Just a normal tug of war between west and ...
