against Savitri. Heriones were almost always seen as virtuous, weepy, helpless characters whose sole existence relied upon the presence of a man in her life - husband, brother or father. If the heroine were not married then it was assumed that she was a virgin. The basic idea in all Indian films from 1930's to the present day is that the heroine will finally get her man. Rani Mukerji states "The ultimate goal of the heroine is to get her man in the end...This may not be shared by the hero. Whether it's a comedy, a romantic film, an action film, a horror film - you always have romance winning in the end".The Ideal MotherIndian reference to the mother involves religious suggestion.

. This creates suspense as it shows that he has power over them and it also hints that he has great importance to the story. Furthermore, it creates a mysterious atmosphere. George Lucas uses a long shot to show the full height of Darth Vader, making the viewers feel inferior to him. Then, the shot changes to a close up, drawing the attention towards his mask. This makes the audience feel as if it could have some relevance further on in the film. The music then restarts; however it is a more negative sounding tune. This creates a sense of fear and weariness. Throughout the rest of the scene, you can hear Darth Vader’s raspy breathing whenever he is there. This makes the viewer feel uncomfortable

Have you ever seen the photograph of the six men putting up "Old Glory" on the island of Iwo Jima? The book Flags of Our Fathers tells about the lives of these men, from when they were first born to when they became our nation's heroes. The battle of Iwo Jima was a terrible battle that killed a lot of United States Marines, but finally ended with a victory for the United States of America. Six young Marines raised the replacement flag at Iwo Jima. They were six very different men, united to fight the war as Marines. These Marines did not know it, but the picture of them putting up the replacement flag on top of Mount Suribachi would be a phenomenon. One of the men was Ira

How separate an area it is has shaped audience response in a cultural sense. The peaks of audience participation have arisen in times when there is close proximity to the stage, encouraging the spectator to feel like another performer.The use of performance space can be an unconscious one. Performers, particularly professionals, must devise or present or work within the performance space that have obtained funding for. The audience member is often not conscious of the use of performance space, focusing instead on the overtly designed

The white culture and the coloured culture. That's the way it has been and that's the way it will always be."The Jessup County Authorities seem to be satisfied with the way things run in their town.

the contest. Nupur's schoolmates were stating that even they knew how much she wanted to win. Harry was overly eccentric to the point where even the judges appeared to be annoyed. April's self esteem seemed to be the worst out of everyone's; her life revolved around the spelling bee. Almost her entire interview was her being down on herself. She was so insecure and apprehensive at even the thought of winning, which it put into perspective the seriousness and intensity of what came across of just an ordinary spelling bee. Ultimately, I would have not done anything different if I had made the film. The contrast of family life, monetary status, and the children's perception, was well done because it illustrated a variety of children, who all had ostensibly had to same goal. In the end, the one thing they all had in common was the feeling of relief that the competition was over.

Her short hair and ideal about beauty proves her to be someone of great independence. She captures Gilbert's heart and shakes the foundation of the Grape family by distracting the routine of Gilbert's life. Gilbert at one time likens his mother to a beached whale and in doing so, he is quite accurate. Bonnie Grape is the most protective and caring of the characters in the film due to her terrifying introduction to being a widow. After that sort of loss, she never wants to see anyone in any sort of peril of dangerous situation. "Gilbert, get him down from there [a

impractical due to the instability of the market, which in turn influenced the value of gold. The fiat currency system was developed (paper money) which was currency printed by the governments. The government would determine how much money was in circulation by taking into account the current supply and demand and the condition of the market. Many advocates for the gold standard have argued this system can increase the rate of inflation. The counter-argument made is the gold standard would cause deflation, leading to economical recession. Gold coins are very high on the spectrum for counterfeiting. There is a concern about substandard coins being put on the market that would not reflect the

Do these two films represent the Australian groups to reflect social attitudes or do the social attitudes reflect the dominant ideology of the context in which each film was created?The representations of women in Sunday Too Far Away (hereby known as STFA) do to some extent reflect the social attitudes of that time period. The two main female characters, Ivy and the cocky's daughter are greatly marginalised in STFA. Even though both characters are marginalised, they do show signs of wanting to be seen as not accepting the social attitudes. This is evidently presented in the cocky's daughter.

When they are fighting in the fight club, blood is a dominant image. It is a sign of being able to let go of all your material goods, if you can let go of your physical health. Here soap has no significance; The Narrator, however, uses soap in what could be his possible financial future. By selling this highly profitable soap he can make an easy living, but it would change nothing in his life. The significance of soap with fighting, therefore, is not easily visible.

But the very basis of the risk is the thought, the wanting to go out and do something different from the norm. That means the thought itself is a risk, that thinking itself is a risk, and that it is outside our comfort zone. If thinking were outside our circle, then basically everything and everyone's everything is outside their individual circle unless they have achieved nirvana, then which they do not have to contemplate risk-taking or ever write a paper about taking a risk.

New Jersey has made a law preventing bullying, but in my opinion it’s not working all too well. Kids, Teens, and even adults get threatened and physically hurt every day. It’s a good thing August has his friends to back him up in times of trouble because most victims don’t have that. Throughout the novel, August was afraid to tell an adult about what has been happening to him.
The most important thing to do if you’re being bullied is to speak up. It doesn’t help anyone (except the oppressor) if the act of bullying was kept to him /herself. In Wonder you hear August viewed in

By the 1950s, psychiatric medicine’s capability to resolve mental imbalances captivated the public and intrigued intellectuals as “Miracle drugs” extended the human control over the mind. Today, medications are still being used to treat mental issues in patients all over the world and the use of these medications is dramatically increasing. This could be an effect of a more refined field of study, that being psychiatry, in which one can more efficiently determine mental illness in a patient. On the other hand, it could be an effect of the over treatment and over-diagnosis of patients who simply have problems adapting to the environment around them.

persona appears to be transcending to a different time and place. The narrator makes a statement about the idea when he comments about the fire being a "toy of Thought". This can be interpreted to mean that perhaps his subconscious wandering mind sees this fire, hitting with realisation and acknowledgement of what thoughts it brings him - memories of a similar scene. This is a defining point where his initial journey leads him into another realm. "Of my sweet birth-place, the old church-tower, Whose bells, the poor man's only music..." these sudden flashbacks create the sense of the persona reliving his childhood. His thoughts are then turned to his child. "Dear babe, that sleepest cradled

Later that evening, I considered that maybe he had been so ashamed of his actions that he had sought to destroy himself and that was why he had acted so rashly. I noticed that he was very worked up about something as he came down his steps to face Marco. He was cracking his knuckles and under his surreal calm face he spurted little chuckles of incessant laughter. That evening I also realised that there was no-one to blame for this, it was simply a case of two men full of, no, past rage who had lost all civilised order and had reverted to primeval fighting for 'territory'.

The film's wire-thin plot was ballyhooed by feminist groups and critics, but the film found some box office success nonetheless. Unfortunately for Moore, the film signaled the start of a slump.She would then star in the disappointing Disclosure (1994), which, again, was widely criticized for its premise -- Moore plays

being a clown is only way to avoid the brutality of society. When Dill says "I think I'll be a clown when I get grown, there ain't one thing in this I can do about folks except laugh," (Pg.216) the reader realizes that Dill has created another world deep inside his young heart, which protects himself from the real world; he finds the world hard to comprehend, so he just as well "runs away" from it. This is not just a child's whimsy, in fact, Dill has already made this decision as he first learns about racial prejudice during Tom Robinson's trial, when Jem tells him about Dalphus Raymond's children, "colored folks won't have'em because they're half-white; white folks won't have'em 'casuse they're

Why would a young girl continue to speak to a guy who said he wanted to "move inside" her? She obviously knew what that meant, and was offended by it, so why continue the conversation? Not to mention that if a guy she had only seen once showed up at her door, wouldn't an observant girl

subjects with mostly “B” and “C,” “how come? Who graded these papers? And what happened?” were the sort of things I asked myself.
