2013 Pirelli Calendar Unveiled

The globally acclaimed Magnum photographer Steve McCurry unveiled the 2013 Pirelli calendar during an official event held November 27,2012 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Launched in 1964, the calendar was born as a racy way to promote the brand's tyres. With its naked pinups shot in exotic locations from Mallorca to Tunisia to the Bahamas, the calendar quickly took on bigger proportions, becoming a fashion icon that attracted top-tier photographers.

All of the photographs were taken in the streets of Rio and its favelas. Together, they shed light on the history and evolution of the iconic city, documentary-style.

In another major shift with the past, all of the women (models, actresses and singers) featured in the 2013 edition of the Pirelli calendar 2013 are covered up, while previous editions were renowned for their artistic portrayals of female nudity.

The 40th edition of the calendar includes 34 color photographs, including 23 portraits of actresses, singers and models, nine photographs depicting Rio de Janeiro’s everyday life, and two pictures of graffiti art and murals.

The 2013 edition marked the third time it's been shot in Brazil, following the 2005 and 2010 editions.

Excess power from Delhi cannot be given to TN, says Central Govt

The Centre on Thursday Nov 29,2012 informed the Supreme Court that the additional power surrendered by the NCT of Delhi could not be allocated to Tamil Nadu without compromising the grid security as the critical transmission elements in the North-South corridor of the southern region were fully utilised.

In its counter to the suit filed by Tamil Nadu, the Centre said “this is based on the Total Transfer Capability and ATC of the inter-regional links as well as the north to south corridor within the southern region.

A Bench Chief Justice Altamas Kabir and Justice J. Chelameswar adjourned the hearing to December 4 to enable Tamil Nadu to file its rejoinder.

The Rajaji days are remembered for landmark laws to protect tenants of farm lands and landless agriculturists. 
Note C. Ra­j­agopalachari became the first elected chief minister of the Madras Presi­de­n­cy in 1937 as well as its first non-elected CM in 1952

When DMKcaptured power in 1967 and its founder C.N. Annadurai became Chief Minister, the Hindu Marriage Act was amended to recognise “self-respect marriages” or those marriages free of religious rituals.

10-year-long rule (1977-1987) of the government, headed by M.G. Ramachandran of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, was noted for various measures in the area of revenue administration. Notably, the system of hereditary village officers such as “karnam” was abolished at one stroke
After the Supreme Court delivered the Mandal Commission judgment in November 1992, settingthe ceiling for reservation in education and employment at 50 per cent, the Assembly responded through legislation aimed at safeguarding the existing 69 per cent quota for Backward Classes, Most Backward Classes and Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes.

May 3, 1952: Many parts of the neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Karnataka were part of the Madras State. To accommodate the 375 members of the Assembly, this building was constructed on the Wallajah Road side of the Estate. It later came to be known as Children's Theatre. In 1953, when Andhra Pradesh was formed, the old building at Fort St. George was considered sufficient.

As a matter of convention, Chief Ministers are members of the Legislative Assembly.
