Jarawa The Tribes
Sunday. 4.19.09 6:36 pm
I drove back with four pages of wikipedia yesterday.

It was my English lesson again and we talked about Jarawa this time. Let's go through it, 'Who the Jarawa are?'

'The Jarawa are a tribe of 200-300 people, and they live on the Indian Ocean. They look very different from their Indian neighbours. Most probably, their closest relatives are African. No one outside the tribe really speaks their language, and so no much is known about them.' - According to a book.

But we do know how the Jarawa live. They are nomadic people, moving from place to place to find food. They hunt small animals and fish, they find berries, honey, and they are self-sufficient - they do everything themselves.

As far as I know, there are some other tribes who are still living on this earth. Basically, there are actually the same as us, they are a human. But why are they living in a defferent life from us?

Here came an interesting question - Why are the Jarawa never have glasses? And my humorous friends in the class said: 'Because they never have a TV set and they never read book. They live in the jungle all the time and so the green plants could help. They aren't shortsighted but they has bright eyes.'

Such answer may put in a sense of humour but she'd got her point. The people wanted to bring a normal live to them as we live in today. The people tried to put a TV set in their house. Um... sorry, they don't have a house. So TV sets were given to tribes. But since then, speacial TV programmes haven't devoloped for the people in the tribes. They never saw a television before in their entire life. When it came to their real life, it seemed that they couldn't adapt to the new life that the people had given to them.

For example, they saw a tiger was running in the TV, they felt afraid and ran away. From over a group of 50 sitting in front of the TV set to an empty place with nobody. Because they thought the tiger was running out and jumping to catch them. I know this was amusing but this was the real them. The people tried to send books, stationery and school uniforms, too, to give them study. However, they couldn't reach it. You know what, their father lived there; their grandfather lived there; their forefather lived there from the last decade as well. So how could it just change in a few months?

In somewhere, I can't remember where, there are 6 tribes - tribes who are living in the boat, tribes who are living up the tree, tribes who are living in the cave, and others I can't remember. I have a bad memory, I admit. So our teacher told us, those who are living in the boat will only like to stay in the boat, and they are undressed. They don't like to dress. They like to be naked.

If they want to go out to the grocery, they will only pick up their shirt on put it on as well as their pants. They bring some fruits in the boat and go in the shop and take their food in the shop and go out. When they reach their boat, they put off the shirt and pants, to be naked again. I don't know how do they do that, I mean to buy things in the grocery. Perhaps they exchange their fruits with the grocer's food?

One question, how could you feel if you were told to live in a different place like the tribes? I know you'd certainly say, 'No way! I'd certainly try many ways to commit suicide because tribes' life is an underworld.'

Indeed, who'd like to live in an underworld like where the tribes live in? No one would Yes to me. Seriously, the tribes don't dress, perhaps just cover with some leaves in front and behind of them, they have long, dark, smelly, curly hair, they have yellowish, sharp teeth, they have very long and dirty nails, they eat food that contains millions of bacteria, they drink polluted river's water, they fight for food, they have to suffer hunger sometimes, they have secret diseases, they have worms in their stomach, they don't bath, they may sleep on wet ground after raining and jungle trees as their blanket, they don't read book, they speak their own language which we can't understand it, they defecate every where, they don't use toilet roll, perhaps they don't clean. They're afraid of people as well.

OR vice versa?

In a word, they're a real pity because they live in such a suffer life. The people had tried to move them out but it's hard and it's not that easy to do it since their forefather had lived in such an unbelievable situation for over a hundred years. Why don't you stop sighing and start thinking about you're much better than them and let your life goes whatever it is.

Slummers In The Slums
Sunday. 4.20.09 10:22 am
Tribes' life are hard and difficult but slummers’ life in the slums are more complicated.

When you see the word slums you'll automatically think about Slumdog Millionaire which was just released in the theater a couple months ago. I'd only realize and understand how a slum was after watching the film. As you'd see in the film, the slums in Mumbai, India were terrily set up. Slummers have to sleep under broken zincs, they sleep in a wet condition too.

I wonder if you've heard about it before, like slummers in India, they have to go and beg and steal and rob and cheat and borrow to get food to survive. They can't eat well because they are too poor to buy food. A little girl have to cover her eyes pretend to be a blind person and carry a baby and then go in the street and start crying, saying that she has been starving for some days, please give her some money. After the little girl got her money, she go back and this time is her mother's turn, carries the same baby and go out and beg again. Next round’s her father, brother and sister.

You see, they are extremely broke and you can see such trick in India all the time, in some places of course. Then if you sympathy for the slummers and give money to ONE of them, you're certainly in trouble, because once they got your money, they'll tell other slummers and all of them in dozens will come to get money from you. And the only one way to escape is your hand go to your pocket and grab all your coins then throw them into the sky, so that you can ran away from them.

Life in the slums are chaos. Fighting causes many deaths and most of their corpse laying beside in the street, people cross the corpse, floating on the sea and flies annoying them. Really tough.

Paper came out of this yesterday,
Dad of 'Slumdog' girl tried to sell her

"The father of Rubina Ali reportedly planned to sell the nine-year-old to escape poverty.

The News Of The World alleged that Rafiq Qureshi demanded £200,000 for the young Slumdog Millionaire star's adoption when reporters posed as a wealthy family from Dubai.

"I have to consider what's best for me, my family and Rubina's future," Qureshi, 36, is quoted as saying, before his brother added that the child's new-found stardom warranted extra cash. Ali found fame playing the youngest version of the character Latika in the Oscar-winning rags to riches film.
" --- this article is taken from Digital Spy

I heard the news on the radio this morning as well. Discussing why the father wants to do so, is he doing right? Because if the father really want to give the best for Rubina's future, he'd just give her to them without receiving any reward. Obviously, his second purpose is aiming at the money. But this can't exactly say he's wrong OR right, depends on how do you think about it.
