Tibet: China puts curbs on printing

Chinese authorities have stipulated stringent rules for printing and copying services in Tibet in a bid to prevent “separatists” from putting up banners and distributing pamphlets. Under the new rules, those using services to reproduce printed or written material in the Tibetan capital Lhasa will have to show their ID cards and have their ID numbers registered, state run China Daily reported.
The new measures are aimed at preventing “illegal activities,” the paper said. “Those who are found to be involved in illegal activities will be asked to shut down their businesses and be held accountable under the law,” it said. Under the rules announced at a meeting of the management of the city’s reprography sector, copy service providers are required to strictly adopt a real-name registration system. The name and address of company, the number of copies, as well as the name of the person who handles such services, have to be taken down for record, the news rules say. Both companies and individual will have to register their name, address, ID card type and number. Xin Yuanming, deputy police chief of the Lhasa police bureau said.

13 hurt in latest China knife attack
Beijing : In yet another attack, at least 13 students were injured on Wednesday in southern China when they were attacked by five to six men with knives and cleavers after an argument.
“A total of 13 students were injured early today by a gang of youth armed with knives in south China’s Hainan province,” said local authorities.
The pre-dawn incident is the latest in a series of knife attacks in the country. The confrontation started midnight on Tuesday when four students of Hainan Technology and Vocational Institute were attacked outside the college by youth from the nearby villages after a dispute, Xinhua news agency reported. The police arrived at the scene and left after questioning students. Later, on Wednesday morning, more village youths with knives joined the attackers and barged into two dormitories of the college and slashed nine students. Two seriously wounded students were being treated at the Haikou City People’s Hospital.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
