Kites 2012 Movie
LINK - https://urllie.com/2t7Jkn
On its first weekend in the North America, the film opened in 208 theaters and ranked No. 10 in the box office, grossing $958,673. It was the first Bollywood movie to reach the weekend top ten, though My Name is Khan had a larger first-weekend North American gross, with $1.9 million at 120 theaters, reaching #13. Kites debuted at No. 10 in the UK, with an opening of £174,000 from 70 screens. Overall, the film was rated as a flop by Box Office India.
Kites music album was composed by Rajesh Roshan, with lyrics penned by Nasir Faraaz and Asif Ali Beg. The songs "Dil Kyon Yeh Mera" and "Zindagi Do Pal Ki" (both sung by KK) became a rage while other songs were also successful. Variety Magazine said the music "ranges from hip-hop to Enya-esque ululating." The movie's main romantic theme has been described as "identical in melody, key, and instrumentation to "Aníron" (Theme for Aragorn and Arwen), written by Enya for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring", though Enya is not given any composer's credit for the music in Kites.
This film is joyous, but more than that: It's lovely in its construction. The director, Prashant Bhargava, born and raised on Chicago's South Side, knows what his basic story line is, but reveals it subtly. The story in outline would be simple enough for a made-for-TV movie. But there is nothing simple about "Patang."
The story line becomes fully clear only toward the end. In form, "Patang" looks almost like a cinema-verite documentary of this family, surrounded by the city and the kite festival. Many key shots were obtained during the festival itself, and we see the skies over the city filled with thousands of dancing, dueling kites, as every single rooftop is occupied by people. Below in the streets, bands, fireworks and food vendors create a tumult.
"In 2005, I visited Ahmedabad to experience their annual kite festival, the largest in India. When I first witnessed the entire city on their rooftops, staring up at the sky, their kites dueling ferociously, dancing without inhibition, I knew I had to make this film in Ahmedabad."
Jay Ray: Kites... flying high in the sky... free... dancing in the wind... with no worries... like two lovers... they meet, they fight... .they embrace... they almost become one... but it is not the will of the kites that makes them dance; because someone else... always holds the strings...
Many avian predators and scavengers have been suffering from a worldwide poisoning crisis, due to lead, pesticides, or veterinary drugs such as Diclofenac (Margalida 2012, Buechley and Şekercioğlu 2016). For example, in Africa, Europe, and North America, countless primary and secondary pesticide poisonings of raptors have been reported. Many instances resulted from farmers intentionally poisoning predators because they wanted to protect their livestock or game species, but there have been other motives (e.g., to conceal poaching; Allen et al. 1996, Mineau et al. 1999, Berny 2007, Muzinic 2007, Márquez et al. 2013, Walther 2016). However, very few cases to date have been reported from Asia, despite the widespread use of pesticides on this continent (Berny 2007, Costantini 2015).
Two of the most commonly used pesticides are carbofuran and anticoagulant rodenticides (ARs). Carbofuran is one of the most popular chemicals used to poison wildlife all over the world because it is cheap and highly toxic (Ogada and Keesing 2010, Richards 2012, Berny et al. 2015, Ruiz-Suárez et al. 2015). In fact, some early official agricultural articles taught farmers to use a 75% carbofuran powder mixed with rice to reduce pest bird and rat populations in Taiwan (Li 1986, Ho 1994, Zhuang 1994, Chiu 1995).
The sudden decline of Black Kites in Taiwan starting in the 1980s was indicative of some serious and rather sudden crisis for the species. We began a Black Kite population and breeding survey in 2011. From 2012 onward, we discovered several poisoned Black Kites, and our preliminary analyses detected either carbofuran or ARs. We also opportunistically uncovered some poisoning incidents of small farmland birds, which suggested to us that Black Kites might also be victims of secondary poisoning. Because no vultures occur in Taiwan, the Black Kite has partly assumed the role of a scavenger, making it more vulnerable to secondary poisoning when eating small animals poisoned by pesticides and ARs.
Occasionally, dead or incapacitated Black Kites were sent to the Pingtung Wildlife Rescue Center. A veterinary examined them for evidence of trauma and/or neurological changes; the Black Kites that recovered were later released. Kites that died were analyzed for insecticides in 2012 or insecticides and ARs after 2012 (see below).
Poisoned birds can move away and die away from the location of the poisoning, but carbofuran in particular is a very quick-acting poison for birds. For example, Eurasian Tree Sparrows (Passer montanus) died within 10 sec of ingesting carbofuran (S.-Y. Hong unpubl. data), and death occurs within few minutes for other bird species (Richards 2012).
In 2012, 300 g of visceral, bone, and muscle tissue were sampled proportionally from the carcasses of the Black Kites to test the possibility that pesticide concentration might differ among tissue types (Lumeij et al. 2000, Singh et al. 2008). The analytical method followed the Official Guide No. 4, which uses a liquid chromatograph/tandem mass spectrometer (LC/MS/MS) and gas chromatograph/tandem mass spectrometer (GC/MS/MS) that can detect 251 types of pesticide multi-residues (Taiwan Food and Drugs Administration [TFDA] 2011). The limits of quantification (LOQ) ranged from 0.01 to 0.1 μg/g.
We also received 11 Black Kites from October 2010 to June 2016 (Table 3). All the kites were found alone, i.e., not found with other dead birds or associated with the 213 farmland bird poisoning incidents mentioned above. Nine out of these 11 Black Kites were juveniles or nestlings, and 10 were found from October to January.
With the success of Film Expo 2011, the Asian Educational Media Service (AEMS) was invited back to organize film screenings for this year's Association for Asian Studies annual conference in Toronto. AAS Film Expo 2012: Asia in Current Motion will take place March 15 - 17, 2012 in the City Hall Room of Sheraton Centre Toronto, located on the second floor. All screenings are free and open to the public. This program is supported by the Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies at the University of Illinois, of which AEMS is an outreach arm, and the Association for Asian Studies.

Building and flying a kite goes deeper than feeling the wind on our faces, it ties this fascination with the earth's natural powers to another innate human instinct: to control it. Despite huge, shop-bought kites being flown expertly nearby, parents were being dragged over to watch us, Kent's own version of the Wright Brothers. The delight of the homemade was contagious and more than one toddler had their dad promising to make a kite when they got home.
Counted among the most beautiful beaches in Britain, on a fine day you would be forgiven for thinking you had been spirited away to the Caribbean. Ideal for flying kites and perfect for building sandcastles and bathing in some of the cleanest water around. 2b1af7f3a8
