Hindu lynch mobs threaten to burn Christians' houses and babies unless they become Hindu.
Violence has been growing since the killing of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati on 23 August.
The VHP appear to be supporting the lynchings.

The drink's tagline is "slow your roll." So if that's something you need to do, keep your eye out. Drank will be hitting stores in New York soon and no doubt a waiting world soon after.

Poet / Artist Paul Conneally works with passers by in Loughborough's Queens Park to turn the 1908 bandstand into a Renga Bandstand. The bandstand rather than being a 'renga platform' in the sense that the renga was written on it became the focal space for the 'passer-by renga' - the master-poet engaging with passers by and encouraging them to read the verses gone before (each one as written attached to the bandstand) and write the next link and shift verse. A knitting group with their knitted picnic were invited to sit and knit in the bandstand and a morris dancer band too. The renga bandstand was strung with poems from the ongoing project 'The Sound of Water' and the renga built itself up around the outside rails of the bandstand. Here it is at the end of the day as things were calming down.
Jemma Bagley of Charnwood Arts co-ordinated the work.

Organic gardening guru Richard Clare in conversation with Paul Conneally talks about allotments in the 21st century. How it’s not really about growing cheap food but more about lifestyle and gardening as therapy.
This was recorded during the preparation for Abundance in Richard’s greenhouse on his Sheffield allotment.
This was the greenhouse that played host to the poets who wrote Circle of Fire – the first renga ramble – and Richard was such a good host!

'Surveillance' comes out of INVIGILATOR : DIGBETH the 5th in the INVIGILATOR series conceived by artists Paul Conneally, Nikki Pugh and Kev Ryan.
The poem is a direct transcript taken by Paul Conneally as he heard it of INVIGILATOR : DIGBETH participant artist Harry Palmer in the discussion workshop which formed part of INVIGILATOR : DIGBETH and took place after the Invigilators had returned to VIVID art gallery in the heart of Birmingham's Digbeth area.
The sound track is made from a snippet of Harry saying the word ' surveillance ' combined with the ambient sounds of the VIVID space that the artist led discussion was taking place in.
WARNING! The soundtrack of Surveillance contains backmasked material - hidden messages.

When transposed to an outside space where the invigilator has to stand or sit and simply 'watch over' then the space and the action of simply watching over it sets up an interaction that is boring in such a way that it can transcend boredom if we let it... The space becoming bored of the invigilator throws up new facets new resonances between it and the 'watcher over' the 'invigilator'.
A couple of Invigilator:Digbeth participants said that they found the invigilating very zen like - another not at all - the invigilating passed-by with a contrived doing - a counting of and classification of vehicles passing through the invigilated space. Such actions are invoked by the space itself as it is watched over - after all it was only chance that the space invigilated happened to have cars passing through it - this counting this classifying borne out of the possibility of boredom.

What is remarkable about our on–line business is the diversity of customers using it, from busy urban families to people in rural communities.
It has also allowed many house–bound people to shop for art properly for the first time.In south east London where we have fewer stores and some that are exceptionally busy, we have developed a tesco.com–only store.
It is situated at 25-26 Mason’s Yard (Off Duke Street) St. James’s London SW1Y 6BU. This enables us to offer this service to more customers and builds on our existing capability as the warehouse is designed like a Tesco superstore inside.
