Oscar academy restores Satyajit Ray's banned film - SIKKIM

This is one of the biggest news to come out on Sikkim.

God bless the guys at the Academy.

Question: Why is it always that someone else from distant lands take up interest in preserving our heritage...

Why do we Indian's collectively fail in this department.

Thanks Arindam for the link.

"Audiences in India can watch "Sikkim" for the first time at the 14th Kolkata Film Festival beginning next week. India lifted the ban about four years ago, Sikkim's art and culture trust said." The week from the 10th Nov 2008 to the 17th Nov 2008.

Hey man, last year you had blogged about our fight to rescue Olive Ridleys from the Tata’s destructive port in Dhamra. Thanks to the efforts of bloggers just like you, the Tatas are now talking to us. We believe we can win the campaign this year if we get enough of an online buzz going again. We have something big planned. To know how you could help out this time, just email me at nlincoln (at) in (dot) greenpeace (dot) org

Hear from you soon!
