yet the city where they arrive with such hope becomes another prison – 12-hour working days in windowless rooms under the watchful eyes of cruel taskmasters But the specificity of their stories is to be derived from the particular conditions which push them to the city—the loss of ancestral land the inability to feed too many mouths the need for money to secure a dowry for a sister and so on Bangladesh is a land dense with rivers and scarred by cyclones The rivers are teeming with fish but the river is also “thieving” and “hungry”; when the Meghna overflows its ravenous maw swallows up whole houses farms and people In this short yet compelling book Seabrook skilfully weaves together tales of peasants with stories of weavers moving back and forth between the village and the city water and land lush green fields and the ramshackle appearance of South Asia’s urban patches even the poetic and the idioms of history He is versed in historical sources but not burdened by them; and only someone with the sensibility of a poet can ruminate on the strange interplay of fire and water that has shaped the contours of the lives of his subjects Water in the form of “tidal surges cyclones and floods” has “always been the most usual element that brings death to Bangladesh”; the villagers flee this menace to arrive as labourers in the city’s garment factories often to be consumed by the fires that have time and again struck the garment industry’s ill-regulated factories and warehouses One might have thought that water fights water but in Bangladesh the two often collude—as if the poor did not have enough wretchedness in their lives There are other desultory facts almost poetic bits that take the breath away: who would have thought that Murshidabad once the world centre of silk weaving and now a haunted culture may have accounted for 5 per cent of the world’s total product The Song of the Shirt writes Seabrook “is a reflection on the mutability of progress” The dominant narrative of human progress presupposes “a deterministic and linear process” but Seabrook insistently reminds us that “experience in the clothing and fabric industry suggests certain areas of the world are liable to periods of industrialisation but equally to de-industrialisation” (17) The most ambitious aspect of Seabrook’s intellectual enterprise and not surprisingly the one that is most fraught with hazards of interpretation is his attempt to suggest the various ways in which Bengal and Lancashire mirror each other The demise of the weaving industry in Bengal under colonial rule “coincided with the rise of the mechanised production of cotton goods” in the greater Manchester area; even as Dhaka became a ghost town “Manchester became the centre of intense economic dynamism” Lancashire is now utterly denuded of its textile mills and Manchester has lost population; but in “a ghostly replay of traffic in the other direction” of “the machine-made clothing” that wiped out Bengal’s famed spinners and weavers Dhaka with its 2500 garment factories has become nearly the epicentre of the world’s manufactured clothing Seabrook invests much in this comparison constantly suggesting similarities between 19th century Britain and contemporary Bangladesh with respect to the lives of the workers the nexus between the state and manufacturers working conditions and much else One might be moved by Seabrook’s comparisons to accept that widely quoted French expression “the more things change the more they remain the same” But this temptation must be resisted if only because a sensitivity to the politics of knowledge should introduce some caution in comparisons between Europe’s past and the global South’s present Nevertheless in Song of the Shirt Seabrook has accomplished the enviable task of rendering naked the social processes which have helped to clothe the world and disguise some unpalatable truths about the treacherousness of what is usually celebrated as entrepreneurial capitalism The writer is professor of history at UCLA For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Tech Desk | New Delhi | Updated: May 19 2017 3:06 pm Facebook will also analyse clickbait headlines for additional languages and not just English Related News Facebook will be doing a series of changes to its algorithm to filter out clickbait headlines from your News Feed The company published a blog post on Wednesday outlining changes that it’s going to do battle clickbait It’s not the first time the social networking giant has done something to tackle this issue Last year as well it updated News Feed to reduce clickbait spreading from sources that consistently post such headlines and even punished publishers for doing so “We’ve learned from last year’s update that we can better detect different kinds of clickbait headlines by separately — rather than jointly — identifying signals that withhold or exaggerate information” noted Facebook Newsroom post The company notes it has now been working to understand what people find authentic and what people do not The three new updates are especially built on this work so that people will see even fewer clickbait stories in their New Feed with more stress on the stories they find authentic According to Facebook it is now taking into account clickbait at the individual post level in addition to the domain and page level The algorithm will now look at whether a ‘headline withholds information’ or ‘exaggerates information’ “We addressed this similarly to how we previously worked to reduce clickbait: We categorized hundreds of thousands of headlines as clickbait or not clickbait by considering if the headline exaggerates the details of a story and separately if the headline withholds information A team at Facebook reviewed thousands of headlines using these criteria validating each other’s work to identify large sets of clickbait headlines” added Facebook post Facebook will also analyse clickbait headlines for additional languages and not just English The company says that it will identify what phrases are commonly used in clickbait headlines similar to email spam filter mechanism For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related News I couldn’t stay in the village and continue to beg for alms, It stars Tabu,though a date is yet to be announced.Chandigarh). and is really helpful in increasing flexibility, The most recent was Kaif and Karachiwala trying out some combination Pilates moves under strict instructions from well-known master trainer Ann Toran from New York.44.
