Atheist conference gets under way

Image

The World Atheist Conference 2018 commenced here with an emphasis on setting right inequalities in the society, quelling superstitions, and propagating rationalistic thinking.

Titled ‘Atheism - Hope of Humanity’, the three-day program organised jointly by the Dravidar Kazhagam, Atheist Centre, Vijayawada and The Rationalists’ Forum witnessed delegates representing rationalist organisations in different parts of India and other countries, taking part in the inaugural and plenary sessions, and presenting their views on an array of topics that included atheism, religious fundamentalism, and medicine and atheism.

Presiding over, K. Veeramani, president, Dravidar Kazhagam, said atheism in India means much beyond non-belief in supernatural and religious rituals, and that the prime focus was on rectifying untouchability in the society perpetuated in the name of religion, and denial of education on the basis of birth. A. Raja, former Union Minister of Telecommunication, said he has been deriving inner strength from atheism.

Gary McLelland, Chief Executive, International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU), London, and Avinash Patil, Executive President, Maharashtra Andhrashraddha Nirmoolan Samithi, Pune, Maharashtra, were the other guest speakers.

Elizabeth O' Cassey, Director of Advocasy - IHEU, Brussels, Belgium, inaugurated an exhibition of books at the Atheist Book Centre.

Rustam Singh, Atheist Alliance International, USA; Suba Veerapandian, General Secretary, Dravidian Tamil Federation; and S. Rajaratnam, Pro-Chancellor, Periyar Institute of Science and Technology (Deemed to be University), Vallam, Thanjavur also spoke.

Five books were released on the occasion: ‘Bhagavad Gita - Myth or Mirage,’ and ‘March of Atheism’ authored by Mr. Veeramani, Compilation of 'Old Testament of Indian Atheism' by Surendra Anjat, ‘Essays on Matters which Matter’ (A Rationalist's Perception) by S. Rajaratnam, and Compilation of 'Revolt' published by Periyar in 1928 and 1929.

Work of artisans from across India

Exhibition with 120 stalls features work of self-help groups
An exhibition organised by Sale of Articles of Rural Artisans Society (SARAS) on Uzhavar Sandhai grounds in Anna Nagar here has provided a marketing platform for self-help groups.

Organised by the Ministry of Rural Development and Tamil Nadu Corporation for Development of Women (Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Department), the exhibition has 120 stalls featuring the work of self-help groups. Tourism Minister Vellamandi N. Natarajan and Minister for Backward Classes and Minority Welfare S. Valarmathi inaugurated the exhibition on December 28. This is said to be the first time that the event is being held in Tiruchi.

Besides stalls from the 32 districts Tamil Nadu, the fair has participants from Kerala, West Bengal, Karnataka and Puducherry. Products on sale include handicrafts, jute bags, costume jewellery, textiles and dress materials. “People in Tiruchi seem to be less knowledgeable about embroidered clothes, and the worth of needlework,” said a representative from Jagoran group, that has some exquisite material for sale. “It takes our artisan one month to embroider a two-metre length of chanderi cotton, but customers here are only interested in discounts, not in the effort that has gone into creating the pieces. We cannot match the prices of synthetic garments,” he said.

The Kolkata-based group has 10 members who coordinate the work of 50 needlework artisans in West Bengal. Despite the large layout devoted to the fair, some of the stall holders The Hindu spoke to felt that more could be done to promote awareness of the fair.

Cultural programmes featuring music, dance, drama and magic shows are being held every day to increase the entertainment value of the exhibition. Stalls that do well in sales will be recognised with prizes.

The SARAS fair is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. till January 7.

Trichy City Gears up for New Year Big Bash as 90% Bookings are Completed at Major Venues


Quote:
It's the time of the year again and Trichittes are gearing up for the midnight party as the hotels and clubs in the city are making elaborate arrangements to welcome 2018.

According to hoteliers, they are getting good response from the city folk to the parties planned to welcome the New Year.

Being a tier-two city, Trichy was not famed for the midnight celebrations. But, it could be a different scenario in the Rock Fort city this year with people keen on joining the party in the hotels and resorts.

"The reservation for our new year party this year was overwhelming.

Almost 90 % of the bookings have been completed. Many prefer to come with their family to join the entertainments as they want a feel of a cosmopolitan city here," said general manager of a private hotel in Trichy VS Sriee Ariya Kamban.

Normally, youths would account for majority of the crowd. Of late, such parties are attracting a good number of family crowds.

DJ parties would be a new experience to the Trichittes as hotels and clubs have pitched in DJs. The fee for joining the parties ranges from Rs500 to Rs 1200 per head to enjoy the shows and buffets as well as liquor.

Joint managing director of a private hotel T V Prabhu said there was raising trend of families looking for getaways to celebrate the New Year.

"We had enquiries from people about the DJ parties and light music shows this year. Food and liquor also remain the preference among them for the celebrations," said Prabhu.

A private events and tours operator embarked on a move to present a new experience to the Trichy people by organising the celebration in a resort near Nochiyam on Namakkal road in Trichy this time.

"It's an idea to give a new experience to Trichy people. We have made grand arrangements to keep the people entertained," said R Gunachandran from an event management company in Trichy.

In order to prevent any untoward incidents, the permission to swimming pools has been restricted in several places during the New Year gala.
