Origami's many marvels: Artist Himanshu Agarwal demonstrates the paper folding artHave you ever made a paper boat, fan or plane? A tipi-tipi tap? Knowingly or unknowingly, we’ve all done origami sometime in our lives. Derived from the Japanese words, Oru and Kami, which literally mean paper folding, origami’s premise is pretty simple: you start with a square or rectangular sheet of paper and transform it, through folding techniques, into a sculpture. It could be a swan, crane, violin, headphones, a fictional character… anything! It is, essentially, a craft that has been developed into an art, says Himanshu Agarwal, a Mumbai-based origami artist. The idea of origami is not restricted to a certain kind of paper, size or technique. Though the use of glue and cuts is often used to make larger and more intricate designs, it is discouraged in modern origami. Agarwal feels that it is more of a test than discouragement. He says, “It’s like a challenge, can you make it (origami) from a single sheet of paper.”

Breakthrough in Japan, Russia islands row eludes PM Abe, Putin | ReutersBy Kiyoshi Takenaka and Katya Golubkova | TOKYO TOKYO Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Russian President Vladimir Putin wrapped up two days of talks on Thursday, with numerous economic deals but no big breakthrough on a territorial row that has overshadowed ties since World War Two.Putin was heading home with promises of economic cooperation after appearing to achieve what experts said was a key objective - easing international isolation when Russia faces Western condemnation over the destruction of eastern Aleppo in Syria, where it is backing President Bashar al-Assad’s forces. Abe and Putin agreed to launch talks on joint economic activities on disputed islands at the centre of the territorial row as a step toward concluding a peace treaty formally ending World War Two, the two sides said in a joint statement.The islands in the Western Pacific, called the Northern Territories in Japan and the Southern Kuriles in Russia, were seized by Soviet forces at the end of World War Two and 17,000 Japanese residents were forced to flee.The dispute over their sovereignty has prevented the two countries signing a peace treaty.Abe said he and Putin had taken "an important step" toward a peace treaty but concluding one would not be easy."The issue won’t be solved if each of us just make their own case," Abe said at a news conference with Putin."We need to make efforts toward a breakthrough so that we don’t disappoint the next generation. We need to set aside the past and create a win-win solution for both of us." Putin dismissed the notion that he was only interested in getting economic benefits from Japan."If anyone thinks we’re interested only in developing economic links and a peace deal is of secondary importance, that’s not the case," he told the same news conference
