Yellow Kite has secured Yoga saved my life, the third book by psychotherapist Sasha Bates.

Liz Gough, executive editor at Yellow Kite and Hodder Lifestyle, has acquired worldwide English rights to Jane Graham Maw from Graham Maw Christie’s agency. The book is set to be released in hardcover on June 9, 2022.

Since first turning to yoga to cope with the stresses of a busy media career, Bates has trained as a yoga teacher and psychotherapist, teaching yoga at businesses, studios and gymnasiums and working as a psychotherapist within the NHS and higher education institutions. Bates now runs his own private psychotherapeutic practice and has received training in trauma-informed yoga, a specific form of yoga designed to help people with post-traumatic stress and complex trauma.

Yoga saved my life “will help readers realize how powerful yoga can be in transforming their daily lives and how, like therapy, it provides ways to work with the automatic habits that hold us back.”

The editor wrote: “[Bates] emphasizes that yoga has value for everyone and can offer relief to people struggling with the big issues and concerns that many of us face today – anxiety, stress, depression, anger conflict, addiction , uncertainty, loneliness. The book will help readers develop self-awareness and find ways to improve their relationships with themselves and others. Basically, it emphasizes that while we may come to yoga for health, we must stay for healing.

Gough said: “I have been interested in the increase in the number of people who are turning to yoga for much more than the physical experience, but also as a tool for healing, to overcome emotional issues and for well-being. mental, so I’m glad I found this book from an existing Yellow Kite author. Sasha is a wonderful writer, with years of experience teaching yoga and a specialization in using yoga to overcome traumatic experiences. She has an instinctive gift for knowing what her readers want and need to hear, and the book is extremely motivating and powerful.

Bates added, “I used to find the slightly esoteric language used by yoga teachers quite alienating, but mapping the concepts to the world of psychotherapy made more sense to me. It’s so upsetting when people see yoga as just another form of exercise, or think they have to be a certain body shape or size to be able to try it. Yoga is for everyone – it doesn’t matter whether you can touch your toes or wear lycra leggings, it’s about learning how to get in touch with yourself in a kinder and more understanding way .

He added that if they were to add the number of birds killed after being cut by the sharp manja (thread) or trapped in the meshes of the manja, the total number exceeds 1,000. “We had called people before the start of Makar Sankranti not to fly kites. There is some awareness in this regard, however, many others still indulge in kiting without realizing that their action can cause permanent damage the wings of birds,” said Jain.

‘All That Breathes’, Shaunak Sen’s documentary premiering at Sundance, is an urgent commentary on Delhi’s social fabric and its apocalyptic skies

At the start of Shaunak Sen’s documentary, anything that breathes – while carefully examining and suturing a wounded bird in front of them – two brothers discuss the potential ramifications of nuclear war based on a news report one of them has come across. If it weren’t for the bird on the table, you would have guessed it was just another Delhi basement: filled with boxes, chipped walls and soot-covered light bulbs lighting just enough.

If you ask the 34-year-old director — beyond the occasional references to said nuclear obliteration — Delhi is already in the throes of an apocalypse and the brothers have a front row seat to it. And he captured that in anything that breathes, the only Indian documentary to have its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival in Utah, USA (to be held virtually from January 20).

“Essentially, the film is about the relationship of the people of Delhi with the polluted sky, through the lenses of these black spots [the silent casualty of the city’s darkening skies, the black kite] that we often see slipping through it,” he says. Through the story of the two brothers, Nadeem Shahzad (44 years old) and Mohammad Saud (40 years old), Sen wanted to grasp the fact that “nature does not happen elsewhere but in the heart of our urban jungles”.

Delhi-based director Shaunak Sen

Blackheads, dark lives

The brothers’ story appealed to Sen because they selflessly dealt with black kites from their basement while running a soap dispenser business next door. (Sen was actively looking for people working with birds and contacted the duo after discovering their story in various news reports.) Through their bird rehabilitation organization, Wildlife Rescue, the brothers treat more than 2,000 raptors a year.

Shahzad and Saud are not qualified vets. Sen explains that they both developed a “hypnotic fascination” with black kites while growing up in Old Delhi. “According to Islam, throwing meat at kites is virtuous. This time two decades ago when they came across an injured kite and took it to a government bird hospital in Delhi , they were turned away on the pretext that he [the bird of prey] was not a vegetarian. The brothers had then operated the said kite themselves. It helped that they were into bodybuilding – leaning on dozens of flex magazine issues helped them understand the world of injuries, tears and fractures.

A black kite

But as the documentary progresses, the birds from owls to hawks falling from the sky due to the dual effect of pollution and deadly kite enthusiasts only increase. Even the black kites – migrating raptors that visit Delhi from Russia during the winter months – are injured and can never turn back. “Injured birds keep coming to them in cartons carried in auto rickshaws, their personal relationship has its ups and downs and Delhi’s social violence is also seeping into their neighborhood. Yet they carry on with meaning. ironic humor.

In the documentary, as environmental toxicity and social unrest in Delhi escalate, the relationship between this Muslim family and the neglected kite forms a poetic chronicle of the city’s ecology collapse and rising social tensions.

Urban jungle malaise

The team followed the brothers for three years to gain insight into their lives and, through this, the wider history of Delhi itself. “If you look at anything long enough, things are revealed to you,” Sen says. “For me, it was important to situate the good work of the brothers in a larger context. The best books or movies that I personally like approach everything through the particular.

Extract of

The documentary is peppered with languorous shots of rats scurrying for food in the heart of the bustling city; pigs framing the edges of an elite canton; and even a turtle riding on garbage bags, contemplating the endless traffic on the road. Sen and his team spent most of the filming schedule patiently and painstakingly making these shots, as they formed the core of the film.

“The city wants to give you the impression that nature is happening elsewhere,” he says. “But we live in a time when lizards’ finger spans have increased because they now have to navigate concrete houses. So we’ve used the brothers’ story as a springboard to show how the city’s social and ecological malaise has truly taken over the world of everything that breathes.

Sen insists the documentary is not a social justice film, at least not explicitly, nor is it a nature documentary because “nobody on the crew just has those skills. “. However, it relies on the cold facts unfolding before us. Or as he puts it: “We tried to make the scientist poetic.

To be the only Indian documentary to premiere at Sundance is an honor Sen certainly does not take for granted. And he credits the film’s universal appeal to its themes. “The brothers provided me with an emotional crutch and then there are fewer things in life more universal than the human-animal relationship.”

The Sundance Film Festival runs January 20-30 on sundance.org.

Shakrain – the most anticipated festival in the districts of the old city. There is only one week left, but excitement is in the air in the alleys of “Puran Dhaka”.

Shakrain is no longer limited to residents of Old Dhaka. It has become a celebration for all the inhabitants of the capital, and even outside.

For all the latest news, follow the Daily Star’s Google News channel.

Like every year, the festival will be observed this year on January 14 and 15, to celebrate Makar Sankranti.

According to locals, eating pithas, made from new rice, and occasionally flying kites, is a centuries-old tradition.

Over time, the festivities have also changed. On the day of the festival, kites start to fly above the roofs of the neighborhoods, in the morning mist. As the day progresses, the festivities take on new colors. The afternoon ends with a game of kite flying in the winter air, while the night sky is illuminated by fireworks and lanterns in the evening.

The “Buro-Buri” puja will also be held in the temples on the afternoon of the festival.

Preparations for the festival took place Thursday in the Shankharibazar, Tantibazar, Laxmibazar, Narinda, Sutrapur and Lalbagh neighborhoods of old Dhaka. Kites and natai (kite spools) are also sold in small neighborhood stores.

Many have started a seasonal kite business.

When asked if the festivities would be different due to the Covid situation, Hossain Adnan, who came to Shankharibazar to buy kites, said the risk of infection is lower as they celebrate the festival on the roofs and between them.

According to traders, kites of different designs and shapes including Chokhadar, Pandar, Kathadar, Maladar, Pankhiraj, Chalandar, Petidar, Pandar, Prajapati, Dapas, Batur and Chil are available.

Regular kites are sold from 5 to 25 Tk depending on the shape. Foreign kites of different designs cost 150-600 Tk. A thousand meters of Manja wire from India or China cost 150 Tk. However, the more you get, the less you pay.

Mohan Sur, owner of Sur Ghurighar in Shankharibazar, said sales were lower this time around than before the Covid era. But one week before the festival, sales could increase. Although the prices are the same as before, due to the low number of buyers, the natis are being sold this time around for lower profits, he said.

For the second time, DSCC is also organizing the festival. The organization’s permanent sports and culture committee will organize the festival in all neighborhoods. The inauguration event will take place at Lalbagh Kella.

There was once a Joseon era scholar and politician named Nam Gu-man 남구 만 who was exiled to Gangwon-do Province after being embroiled in political conflicts. Joseon’s Confucian scholars, called “seonbi 선비”, did not change their way of life, even in exile. Although they have lived in poverty and loneliness, they read books to sharpen their intellect and use their knowledge in their attempts to help ordinary people and improve their lives. While Nam Gu-man was banished to a village in Gangwon-do for two years, he won the respect of the locals by teaching locals to read and encouraging local industries. One of the poems he wrote in banishment is “East Window”, one of the favorite poems of Korean people.

Is the window lit? The lark chirps.

Isn’t the young shepherd still standing?

When is he going to work the field with the long furrows beyond the hill?

The essence of the poem encourages a farmer to cultivate diligently. This is the exiled scholar’s way of gently suggesting everyone to fulfill their role in society: for a student to study hard, a fisherman to fish, and a government employee to be loyal to the country and serve his people. Here is Lee Dong-gyu singing “East Window”.

East Window / Sung by Lee Dong-gyu

The year 2022 has dawned and people have undoubtedly made countless resolutions. Some of the New Year’s resolutions that people make most often, but which also fail most often, are weight loss, quitting smoking, learning a new language, exercising, and reading books. How many of these resolutions have you made this year? In addition to making New Year’s resolutions, there are several customs that are practiced on New Years Eve, or at the start of a New Year, such as hanging a colander on the door on the last day of the year or hanging a painting. in a room or by jumping on a rocking board called “neol 널”. Hanging a colander prevents evil spirits from entering a house as spirits will be too busy counting the holes before daybreak. Hanging a painting depicting a brave general, a tiger or a dragon also keeps evil spirits away. Koreans would fly kites until the first full moon of the year, then cut the ties on the day of the first full moon to chase away bad luck with the kites. That was not all. In the old days, Koreans would invite traveling folk groups to play music to entertain the gods, or have professional readers of Buddhist scriptures to pray for peace in their homes. All these practices were intended to chase away bad luck and bring good luck. Let’s listen

Prayer script / Sung by Kim Yu-ri

In the old days, people often prayed to heaven and ancestors. They prayed to the sun when it rose and the moon at night. Koreans first thought of their ancestors during traditional festivals and asked them to look after the well-being of their families. More important than wishing good luck for themselves and their families was that they were compelled to live their lives the best they could with a humble heart, believing that the gods were keeping their eyes on them and eventually. reward them by granting their wishes. true. Their faith kept them from becoming too lazy or mistreating others. The last song today is “Jowangpuri 조왕 풀이” sung by Jo Sang-yong. Jowang was one of the most senior household gods in charge of cooking. Serving Faithfully Jowang has given everyone in the family plenty of food and health. So let’s listen to “Jonwanngpuri” praying for the well-being of our loved ones throughout the year.
