Meryl Streep at the Golden Globe Awards, 2007 (x)
"The most personal tragedy in my life was James Dean, you know. I was nineteen years old, and I had such admiration for him," a tearful Hopper said in 1987. "I was haunted by the death of Dean, which had been the greatest emotional shock of my young life. He taught me so much. When he died, I felt cheated. I had dreams tied up in him, and suddenly, that was shattered. The alcohol and drugs brought me temporary escape. That was the first major thing that really affected me. It affected me for years after. I mean it really did. Even now I still… you know, I question. I mean, I can go to Europe, I’m going to Sweden, I go into a nightclub, and there’s James Dean, Humphrey Bogart, Marilyn Monroe on the wall.

"Rajesh Kumar is a shopkeeper by profession but spends hours every morning teaching around 80 children from the poorest of the poor in India’s capital. The 43-year-old visited the construction of the Delhi transit station a few years ago and was disturbed by the sight of many children playing at the site instead of attending school.
When he questioned the parents working at the sites they all said there were no schools in the vicinity and no one cared. Consequently, his open-air class room was born - between pillars and beneath the tracks of the Delhi transit system, known as the Metro.
Every few minutes a train passes above, the children unperturbed by its sounds. There are no chairs or tables and the children sit on rolls of polystyrene foam placed on the rubble. Three rectangular patches of wall are painted black and used as a blackboard.
Anonymous donors have contributed cardigans, books, shoes and stationery for the children, as their parents cannot afford them. One unnamed individual sends a bag full of biscuits and fruit juice for the pupils every day - another incentive for the children to turn up for their studies.”
