Read e-book online Indien: Ein Länderporträt (Länderporträts) (German Edition) PDF

By Bernard Imhasly

Die Vielfältigkeit Indiens ist quickly schon ein Klischee. Ein Land der Widersprüche, das changiert zwischen Kastenwesen und Demokratie, zwischen Götterglaube und High-Tech, blanker Armut und neuer Wirtschaftskraft mit glitzernden Shopping-Malls. Bernard Imhasly lebt seit Jahrzehnten in Indien und kann wie kaum ein Zweiter vom Subkontinent erzählen, etwa, indem er von der indischen »Hochzeitsindustrie« mit einem Jahresumsatz von circa forty Milliarden US-Dollar berichtet oder von der nicht zu unterschätzenden Rolle der indischen Mythologie in der aktuellen Politik.
Ein Länderporträt, das die großen Unterschiede Indiens berücksichtigt und alle gesellschaftlichen Bereiche behandelt.

So viele Wunder, so unglaubliche Kontraste: Diese area berührt, fordert heraus, stößt ab und zieht an wie wohl keine zweite auf dieser Welt. Bernd Schiller, Indienreisender seit Jahrzehnten, nähert sich dem Land mit Respekt und immer noch auch mit ungläubigem Staunen.

Então, como conhecer esse povo que fascina tanto o Ocidente? Partir de sua história é essencial, desde a primeira civilização, que surgiu naquelas terras há five mil anos, até a recente independência, incluindo a relação com os vizinhos China e Paquistão e a explosão tecnológica dos dias de hoje. A jornalista Florência Costa – que tem laços de família com a Índia, onde viveu por muitos anos – nos leva à cozinha indiana, com seus múltiplos temperos; às festas monumentais de casamentos arranjados; à espiritualidade e às religiões e até aos banheiros (raros). Livro imperdível para quem quer conhecer (ou acha que conhece) os indianos.

By Huub Neys

Toen ik in 1991, tijdens een sabbatical, in Indonesië terecht kwam merkte ik dat ik me daar gelukkig kon voelen. Ik besloot zaken te gaan doen met Indonesië om steeds weer terug te kunnen gaan.

Gedurende 25 jaar gebruikte ik steeds een deel van mijn bedrijfswinst om meer dan 20 Indonesische kinderen naar college te laten gaan en werd zo familielid van veel van rooster en leerde chicken intiem kennen. Mijn verhalen gaan dan ook veel over chicken. Het dagelijkse en het unieke, het trieste en het lachwekkende. Over polygamie, toeristen, tatoeages en bordelen. Over of het zin heeft chicken te helpen of niet en waarom de 'oude cultuur' snel aan het verdwijnen is.

Een lezer schrijft: “Een uniek boek in de compleetheid waarmee Huub zijn geliefd Indonesië van binnenuit beschrijft, vanwege de inzichten in hun karakter en vanwege de vele weinig bekende feiten.Politiek, godsdienst en het schoolsysteem worden kritisch bekeken. 'Indonesië rampland' noemt Huub zijn 'foute vriendin' vaker. Maar altijd met grote liefde voor zijn moederland geschreven.
Hij trouwt op traditionele wijze met de vrouw van zijn dromen, een Dayakse, zijn ‘Koningin van Borneo’ en zijn familie breidt zich met een paar honderd Dayaks uit. Hij ziet hoe hun cultuur snel verloren gaat. Met rooster woont hij in Centraal-Kalimantan (Borneo) en leert zo het land van weer een heel andere kant kennen”.
