Many Lohias? Appropriations Of Lohia In Karnataka, Chandan Gowda Oct 2010

Many Lohias? Appropriations Of Lohia In Karnataka, Chandan Gowda

Chandan Gowda

Analysing Rammanohar Lohia’s reception in the spheres of party politics, social movements and literature in Karnataka, it emerges that his impact on electoral politics in the state was not substantial. However, key policy innovations such as Devaraj Urs’ land reforms and pro-backward class policies in the 1970s owed a debt to Lohia. He was also a major influence on social and literary movements in the state. Besides inspiring some of the key leaders of the farmers’ movement, Lohia contributed to the distinctiveness of the dalit movement in Karnataka. His ideas on caste, language and individual freedom also inspired the ...

"Advance Mysore" : The Cultural Logic Of A Developmental State, Chandan Gowda Jul 2010

"Advance Mysore" : The Cultural Logic Of A Developmental State, Chandan Gowda

Chandan Gowda

What governs state interests in development in formerly colonised societies? Conventional social science accounts stress politico-economic variables, particularly the need for capital accumulation. By means of a detailed analysis of the Bhadravati Iron Works, an ambitious industrial project in the state of Mysore in colonial India, it is demonstrated that mechanisms are also important in state-led development. Locational disadvantages, technical problems, and increased production costs made the iron plant an unprofitable venture from its inception. The state, however, kept the plant operational on grounds of its pedagogic value for local society. A claim for civilisational recognition for India’s capacity ...

When Prayer Trumps Politics: The Politics And Demographics Of Renewable Portfolio Standards, Joshua P. Fershee Jan 2010

When Prayer Trumps Politics: The Politics And Demographics Of Renewable Portfolio Standards, Joshua P. Fershee

Joshua P Fershee

This Article seeks to understand who supports renewable energy mandates (and why) by analyzing a variety trends found in political and socio-economic data by state, as well as by state renewable energy opportunities (or the lack of such opportunities). The review finds little shocking in the way of politics: Democratic states tend to favor mandates and Republican states tend not to have mandates. Somewhat surprisingly, the correlations among states with wind and solar resources (as well as most of the demographic data) ranged from limited to inconclusive. In religion, however, a strong trend developed. The states with higher Catholic populations ...

Machhu Longu Kannada Cinema ("Hatchet, Long Sword" Kannada Cinema), Chandan Gowda

Chandan Gowda

Referring to her role in Avva (2008) in a television interview, Shruti, the actress, said: “Her sharp tongue itself is the machhu, longu in the film.” Her analogy affirms the wide popularity of what can be termed the Machhu Longu (ML) films in Kannada, all of which are set in the underworld.

A Dialogical-Republican Revival: Respect-Worthy Constitutionalism In Post-Conflict Northern Ireland, South Africa, And Southern Philippines, Edsel F. Tupaz Jan 2009

A Dialogical-Republican Revival: Respect-Worthy Constitutionalism In Post-Conflict Northern Ireland, South Africa, And Southern Philippines, Edsel F. Tupaz

Edsel F Tupaz

This Article addresses the question of constitutional design and negotiation for deeply divided societies in post-conflict settings. It argues in favor of the adoption and application of what might be termed as the “dialogical” model of democratic constitutionalism as opposed to the “enforcement” model which characterizes much of contemporary legal ordering. In discussing their features, the Article charts a normative apparatus for making the constitutional choice between the two, and, thereafter, it tests theory into practice by undertaking a comparative analysis of what might well be successful policymaking and constitution-making practices in Northern Ireland and South Africa. The findings show ...

Letting Go Through The Darkness Of Faith, Alan A. Mackenzie Nov 2008

Letting Go Through The Darkness Of Faith, Alan A. Mackenzie

Alan A MacKENZIE

Our journey to God really is one of being stripped down and approaching in our vulnerability and weakness, in our disgrace (lack of grace). The important thing to understand is that, when we feel “in control” we are inevitably putting up barriers, making it more difficult for us to be aware of graciousness of God. It is when we are conscious of our own shortcomings and fragility, not a morbid self-pitying way but consciously acknowledging the totality of our personality that we tend to be mostly receptive to the promptings and presence of God’s spirit. This is a personal ...

Precious Pilgrims, Alan A. Mackenzie

Sometimes we find ourselves in meaningful group situations that change radically -- leaving us in a reflective space which can promote trasformational growth and change. This paper discusses possible reasons why group relations can help to facilitate individuation. It also incorporates Object Relations theory and observable group dynamics a la Bion, while exploring how work in the "here & now" (contemplative practices) can affect "containment & holding" of the group members.


The Secret Thoughts Of Man Run Over All Things Holy, Alan A. Mackenzie Oct 2008

The Secret Thoughts Of Man Run Over All Things Holy, Alan A. Mackenzie

Alan A MacKENZIE

Addiction to lust is common in many men today. This lust is often rooted in our yearning for emotional intimacy– yet finding ourselves unprepared, unequipped and fearful of that intimacy. Shame pathology results from our wanting relationships and genuine equality and mutuality with women, yet finding ourselves crippled by centuries of male sexism and by our emotional dependencies on the opposite sex. ‘Shame wounding’ continues to fuel this pathology by promoting both compulsivity and a fierce sense of self-loathing. This paper explores ‘shame’ as a concept; and considers some major causes of shame-based addiction. Some sound therapeutic approaches for treatment ...

Can A Person Subject To Islamic Law Make A Will In Nigeria?: Ajibaiye V Ajibaiye And Mr. Dadem’S Wild Goose Chase, Abdulmumini A. Oba Jan 2008

Can A Person Subject To Islamic Law Make A Will In Nigeria?: Ajibaiye V Ajibaiye And Mr. Dadem’S Wild Goose Chase, Abdulmumini A. Oba

Abdulmumini A Oba

Subsequent to the controversial case of Yunusa v Adesubokan (1971) where Supreme Court which held that a Muslim can make will under the Wills Act even if the terms of the will are inconsistent with inheritance laws under Islamic law, the Wills Act and the various State Wills Laws were amended by making them subject to Islamic law and customary law. While the amendments have been upheld severally by the Supreme Court in relation to customary law, the Court of Appeal case of Ajibaiye v Ajibaiye (2007) is the first reported case in relation to Islamic law. Mr. Dadem in ...

Naming The Pain And Guiding The Care: The Central Tasks Of Diagnosis, Donald D. Denton Jan 2008

Naming The Pain And Guiding The Care: The Central Tasks Of Diagnosis, Donald D. Denton

Donald Denton

In my prior volume on diagnosis I identified two themes in diagnosis that would need attention: the continued professionalization of religious care and the continued spiritualization of secular care. The challenge for religious providers of relational care would be to find a unified language of diagnosis with which they could communicate among themselves and also speak effectively with the wider community of human care. The challenge in the secular clinical community was somewhat similar, growing out of the culture’s emerging desire for care that includes sensitivity to spiritual values: finding a nosology for diagnosis that would honor the dilemmas ...
