An unseen poet speaks in the Gujarati language, his voice providing a bouncing cadence as the camera scans the streets of Ahmedabad, India, where, he tells us, his language was born. Car traffic is thick; cow traffic often thicker. Young men standing in the street lean toward the camera and make crude remarks about girls and sexual frustration. Everywhere, people are eating ice cream as the poet offers an obtuse, but compelling, perspective of the city.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Bishop Desmond Tutu withdrew from a South African television program on disinvestment today after the country's state-run radio service broadcast a scathing attack on him. Tutu, the Anglican bishop of Johannesburg, refused to have any dealings with the South Africa Broadcasting Corp. until it apologized for the broadcast. The radio commentary said: "With his constant stream of absurd pronouncements, Bishop Tutu is, surely, inevitably destined to discredit himself."
