"Greetings from the Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan!
We are happy to invite you to the Inauguration of "Germany in my Mind", an exhibition of paintings from the competition for school children held in August 2008, in collaboration with Delhi Public School South Campus Bangalore, under the auspices of the Goethe-Institut initiative "Schools: Partners for the Future".
Event: "Germany in my Mind"
Exhibition of paintings
Date: Inauguration: September 29, 2008, 6.30 p.m.
Chief Guests: Mr. Stefan Graf, Consul General of the
Federal Republic of Germany in Bangalore &
Mr. Rahman Khan, Deputy Chairman of the Rajya Sabha,

Free Entry. All are welcome!
For more information please call the Bhavan (2520 5305/6/7/8) or visit
our website: www.goethe.de/bangalore
The painting competition, "Germany in my Mind" was part of the Goethe-Institut initiative Schools: Partners for the Future, which aims at building and developing a network of partner schools worldwide. 500 schools all over the world, of which about 40 will be from India, will be a part of this far-reaching project. Their teachers will be trained and offered refresher courses for teaching German as a Foreign Language. They and their students will have opportunities to visit Germany. The initiative also foresees providing support in the form of technical hardware, teaching materials, websites, platforms and interactive competitions to network the partner schools with each other.
The project took off in April 2008 and the first event in Bangalore was the Painting Competition: "Germany in my Mind", organised by GI/MMB in collaboration with Delhi Public School South Campus Bangalore: In all 127 children from 12 schools, including one from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, competed in two categories - Seniors (Std. 9 to 12) and Juniors (Std. 5 to 8). The paintings mirror the vision of young Indians about Germany and testify to a vast creative potential. The prize-winning paintings can also be viewed on our website.
May we request you to give wide publicity to this event, both in the general as well as the education and children's columns and depute your representative to review the exhibition and interview the prize-winners. We look forward to welcoming you at the Bhavan for the Inauguration on the 29th.

Sep 25: Film Screening and Stammtisch @ MMB
"We are happy to present to you once again the monthly Stammtisch. We start with the screening of the movie Liberated Zone in German with English sub-titles.
The film is about football in a small village in East Germany. The "liberated zone" is but a bitterly ironic nickname for the former GDR after reunification. It has been liberated above all from any moral constraints and beneath the surface there is a simmering latent violence with racist undertones.
After the screening join us at Café Max for the Stammtisch.

Sep 24: Leadership forum: Business Strategy Planning
"Reinvent Strategy Execution for Breakthrough Results
According to Fortune magazine studies, more than 90% of companies fail because they do not execute their well formulated strategies. CustomerLab Solutions, partners to some of the leading minds of the world including Kenihi Ohmae, Parasuraman, Schmitt and the founders of BSC, Drs Kaplan and Norton announces the launch of Execution Leadership Forum for assisting Indian companies execute strategy meticulously using the Kaplan-Norton framework and achieve world class performance. As part of the strategy execution process using the BSC, we have created systems to make organizations strategy focused. We perfectly understand the barriers to strategy implementation from our interaction with organizations across the world:
Only 5% of workforce understand the strategy;
Only 25% of managers have their incentives linked to strategy;
60% of the organization do not have budgets linked to strategy; and
85% of top management team spend less than one hour a month discussing strategy.
Most companies India face the big challenge: That of operationalising the leadership vision and to make breakthrough results a continuous process. In order to make your organization strategy focused and deliver stretch targets, you need to align your people to your strategy and the best available tool in the world for this is the Balanced Scorecard (BSC), which Harvard Business Review hails as the most revolutionary and effective tool of the last 75 years! In fact more than 80% of Fortune 1000 companies today use BSC for their strategy implementation. It is also the best integrator of all other management initiatives including Six Sigma, CRM, TQM, EVA, EFQM etc. As a way, we have perfected the process of doing this in the Indian culture.
STRATEGY IN ACTION WITH BSC
This workshop will provide you with the tools, techniques, and skills necessary to execute strategy that you can immediately apply. Wherever you are in the strategy management process, this workshop will stimulate, educate, and accelerate hands-on learning and practitioner networking. This workshop will teach you how to:
Create a strategy map
Design a scorecard
Identify measures, targets and initiatives
Get executive buy-in
Develop the first BSC report
Gain real-world insights from several case studies
This is an intense and invigorating one-day programme targeted specifically to all types of executives including:
Company owners, entrepreneurs
CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, CXOs,
Presidents, VPs, GMs and
All those charged with their organization's SBUs, Plants, Operations, R&D, HR, Training and Development, and innovation.
Organisations big and small, whether from private, public, government or not-for-profit will benefit from this workshop.

Sep 20: Pancham - A Musical Tribute
"A true celebration: Unlike our earlier concerts, we hope to give a new dimension to the "Pancham - A Musical Tribute" concert. This concert is special to Zansam for many reasons. It is our second ticketed concert in Bangalore (after the success of Nostalgia Night in 2007). This concert is also a tribute to the legend of R. D. Burman, arguably the greatest composer Indian film music has seen to date. As a celebration, we look to give an air of festivity to the evening and the venue through decorations, an exhibition of paintings, a freely distributed souvenir on the life and music of R.D. Burman...and the music to follow. Just like our last concert, we hope to bring the audiences to their feet, dancing to PanchamDa's memorable and foot tapping music".

Sep 13/14: Woyzeck at Ranga Shankara
"TOTO FUNDS THE ARTS & RAFIKI
Georg Büchner's WOYZECK
September 13 (7:30 pm) & September 14 (3:30 pm & 7:30 pm)
Adaptation and Direction: Anmol Vellani
Cast includes Anish Victor, Ashish Sen, Sunitha M.R., Sachin Gurjale, Abhijeet Shetty, Ashish D'Abreo, Sanjay Iyer, V. Ashok Kumar, Shiva Pathak, Itisha Peerbhoy and Bharat Kumar
(Tickets: Rs 100. For bookings call Anil at 9448279252.)
Georg Büchner's Woyzeck is one the most celebrated plays in the German theatre repertory and has aroused much curiosity and fascination since it was first written in the 1830s. At one level, the play is a gripping story of love, betrayal and madness, a journey into the dark heart of human jealousy. At another, it is a nuanced exploration of the dehumanizing effects of poverty and a scathing statement on hypocrisy and moral boundaries.
Woyzeck is the first play in Western dramatic literature to politicize tragedy and feature a commoner as a tragic figure. Franz Woyzeck is a peasant-soldier whose fate is sealed as much by his own actions as by the forces of oppression in nineteenth century Prussian society. The play explores lust, infidelity, brutality, depravity and murder with a radical vision and compact intensity unequalled in the history of drama.
A new script of Woyzeck has been specially created for this production. The script underscores Woyzeck's lack of voice and agency, his helplessness and despair, and his gradual disintegration as he is bullied and tormented by his superiors, subjected to bizarre medical experiments by the army doctor, and betrayed by his beautiful and vivacious mistress.
Supported by the Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan, Bangalore.
This production is unsuitable for audiences below the age of 16. " 2 comments
