Freedom is what we cherish – 21st century widows

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Losing partners especially for women were portrayed as a sad sob story and more so a life meant to be lived in sadness. However, with changing times, this scenario seems to be changing and only for the better. New Research shows that 21st century widows are having a much better time than their counterparts a century ago. This shift has not been sudden and technology has certainly helped bring about this much needed change. With technology comes better socializing and communication options for widows to communicate with friends.

Many 21st century widows are not tied down by bounds of society and in fact, deaths of their partners are empowering them. These widows even break off conventional family ties and go on solo holidays. Dr. Tracy Collins, a health scientist at the University of Salford has been researching on this evolving trend. She noted that the lifestyle of a widow in contemporary Britain has undergone radical changes. Single women in this category have better personal connections with friends or even communities and that these women are more knowledgeable on technology and well aware of various options that are available to them. Online bingo players would be a perfect reference to be given in this contest.

The research was done on women aged between 62 and 90 and most of them had already taken to new opportunities that a modern society has to offer. These are empowered women who are not ready to sacrifice their lives living in memory and sadness. One defining factor that the research pointed out in general is that these widows treat quality in a relationship to be worth much more than quantity. A lot of participants in the survey revealed that they better appreciated a relationship than before.

The modern society in which these widows live rates friends on par with family. For instance, adult children tend to move away from families and in these times, friends become an important part for filling in the void. In general, most widows in the survey mentioned that they had moved on and that their tragedies were not going to stop them from enjoying their life to the fullest. These widows feel that they are capable of going on holidays alone or even spending Christmas with friends rather than family.

Dr. Collins at the end of the research states that she believes this trend would continue as long as connectivity technology is improving. Facebook, Social networking websites or even online gaming websites can further improve chances of these widows finding someone or enjoying their lives the way they really wish to.

Silent goes Golden at the 84th Academy Awards

Monday, February 27th, 2012

The wait is finally over. The Academy Award winners were announced this Sunday with ‘The Artist’ taking home five Oscars. The black and white silent film was competing against some of the biggest eight names in Hollywood including Brad Pitt Starrer ‘Moneyball’, Daniel Craig starrer ‘The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo’, Steven Spielberg’s ‘War Horse’, Sarah Green starrer ‘The Tree of Life’ and George Clooney starrer ‘The Descendants’.

The 84th Academy Awards night started off with a Billy Crystal skit paying homage to nominations  and a surprise appearance by Justin Bieber helped get the night a ‘18-24 demographic’ like never before.

 The silent film taking home the Oscars for the best movie was expected with Jean Dujardin the star of ‘The Artist’ having won the Bafta two weeks back. Michel Hazanavicius, the director of ‘The Artist’ was elated and said that he was the happiest director in the world after receiving the honour for the best director. Sceptics do not think that this movie would bring back the ‘Silent’ Era back to Hollywood but most actors and directors were all praise for the attempt and the recognition it deserved.

Merly Streep won the best ‘Actress in a Leading Role’ category for ‘The Iron Lady’. Merly had won critics over for her performance that brought to life Margaret Thatcher, who rose through the Conservative Party to become Britain’s first Prime Minister. The mannered portrayal of Margaret Thatcher rising from humble beginnings to rewrite history is one of the best performances by the actress yet. This is the actress’s 17th Oscar nomination in her long acting career spanning over 35 years.

Apart from all the fuzz generated by ‘The Artist’, another film that was in the limelight all night was ‘Hugo’. The film bagged five Oscars for Cinematography, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing and Visual Effects categories.

The best Actor in Supporting Role was won by Christopher Plummer for ’Beginners’ and the award for the best actress in Supporting Role found its way to Octavia Spencer for ‘The Help’. Christopher Plummer became the oldest actor in the history of the Academy to be awarded at age 82. He was seen elated at his elusive Oscar victory and pointed out the similarity between his age and the Academy Award history.

Octavia Spencer had an emotional evening with her describing her state as ‘Freaking out’. She was left standing speechless after running out of her allotted time to speak to the audience. The night was magical for the winners and the audience alike with some brilliant performances and the contemporary shimmer of the Award night staying as vivid as they were eight decades back.
