    About the play: Humor, at times tinged with tragedy, surrealism, costumbrismo and a critical look of its social environment are characteristics of this work. Through a range of characters and personalities there is a vision of a desolate time, without great ambition and where finding a husband or wife is one of the few aspirations to escape ruin. The work is a clear example of the way that Gloria Fuertes had to decipher the reality that surrounded her, transforming it through tragedy, humor or innocence into the literature of an emotional closeness. The story focuses on the experiences of three sisters, especially one of them, crazed after the loss of her mother and who keeps her home unchanged from that moment on to keep the memory of her mother uncontaminated. The woman is dedicated to reciting poetry and under this guise presents an accurate analysis of everything happening around her.

    About the author: Gloria Fuertes (Madrid, July 28, 1917 – Madrid, November 27, 1998) writer of narrative, poetry, theater and prolific author of children’s and youth literature. Her interest in writing began at the early age of five, when she was already writing and drawing her own short stories. She published her first poem at only fourteen in 1932, titled “Childhood, youth, old age”. In the 1940s she began her foray into the professional literary world. In the first five years some of her children’s plays and poems staged in several theaters in Madrid stood out. She began working as an editor in the children’s magazine Maravillas (from 1939 to 1953) where she published weekly stories, comic books and poetry. In 1942 she met Carlos Edmundo de Ory, integrating in the poetic movement called Postism, actively participating in the magazines Postismo and Cerbatana with Ory, Eduardo Chicharro and Silvano Sernesi. She also collaborated in another magazine, Chicas (from 1940 to 1945), publishing humor stories, and in the newspaper Arriba with the Coletas and Pelines comics. Alongside this, she founded the group Versos with skirts next to Maria Dolores de Pueblos and Adelaida Lasantas, dedicated during two years to offer recitals and readings by the bars and cafes of the capital. In 1950 Pirulí published, two years after her first play in verse Prometheus that takes the Valle-Inclán prize, and in 1954 throws Anthology Poetics and Poems of the suburb. During these first years of the decade she organized a children’s library for small towns with the desire to tackle illiteracy, and founding together with Antonio Gala, Rafael Mir and Julio Mariscal the poetic magazine Arquero, which she directed until 1954. From 1955 to 1960 she studied Library Science and English at the International Institute. In 1960 she traveled for three years to the USA after obtaining a Fullbirght scholarship to teach Spanish literature at Bucknell University, Mary Baldwin College and Bryn Mawr College. In 1972 she received a scholarship from the Juan March Foundation for Children’s Literature, which allowed her to devote herself entirely to literature. Two new titles were added to her poetic work: Alone at home and When you learn geography (1973). Halfway through the decade she receives the Hans Christian Andersen award for children’s literature for Cangura, marking her as one of the best authors of children’s literature. She also collaborated on several programs of children’s literature of TVE, the most popular being “A balloon, two balloons, three balloons” and “The white kite” that, together with her compositions of children’s song lyrics, designate her as the children’s poet. She also writes for the magazines Quail and Discóbolo. Throughout the 80s Gloria Fuertes is unstoppable and intense: readings, interviews, radio, tributes, newspapers, trips, visits to schools and constant publications. They emphasize her stories for children: La pájara pint (1972), La gata chundarata and other stories (1974), The mummy has a sore throat (1978), The squirrel and its gang (1980), Cocoloco pocoloco The Coquette Giraffe (1986). The whole of Gloria Fuertes’ work is characterized by the irony with which she treats such universal themes as love, loneliness, the pain of death. The metaphors, the linguistic games and the fresh and simple character that put to the songs of a great musicality and cadence close to the oral language appear. Her lyrical accent is one of the most personal, authentic and distinctive among contemporary poets
    Sobre la obra: El humor, por momentos con tinte trágicos, el surrealismo, el costumbrismo y una mirada crítica de su entorno social son características de esta obra, en la que a través de un abanico de personajes y personalidades se realiza una visión de una época desoladora, sin grandes ambiciones y donde encontrar marido o mujer es una de las pocas aspiraciones que se tienen para salir de la ruina. Esta obra es un claro ejemplo de la personalísima manera que Gloria Fuertes tenía para descifrar la realidad que le rodeaba, convirtiéndola por medio de la tragedia, el humor o la inocencia en literatura de una emotiva cercanía. La historia se centra en las vivencias de tres hermanas, sobre todo en una de ellas, loca tras la pérdida de su madre y que pretende mantener su hogar sin ninguna variación desde ese momento para mantener el recuerdo impoluto. Esta situación recuerda de alguna manera al abuelo de “El tragaluz” de Antonio Buero Vallejo, aunque en esta ocasión la mujer se dedica a recitar poesía y bajo su aspecto de “ida” hace un análisis exacto de lo que sucede a su alrededor por medio de los versos que recita. A través de una abanico de personajes y personalidades se realiza una visión de una época desoladora, sin grandes ambiciones y donde encontrar marido/mujer es una de las pocas aspiraciones que se tienen para salir de la ruina. En un final sorprendente, Esperanza recuperará la cordura tras conocer el amor, cosa que le llevará a asumir una realidad que no está exenta de sufrimiento y dolor.

The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) today expressed its deep anguish and resentment for the lethargic attitude of the Government for not taking any action against e commerce portals for openly flouting FDI policy of the Government in spite of making written complaints. The CAIT in a communication sent today to Shri Ramesh Abhishek, Secretary. Department of Industrial Promotion and Planning, Ministry of Commerce has said in plain words that if no action is taken by the Government, the trade body may opt for approaching Court of law for obtaining justice.
It is noteworthy to mention that the CAIT on 23rd September had sent a communication to Shri Suresh Prabhu, Minister for Commerce regarding gross violation of FDI policy by e-commerce portals and the said communication was referred to Secretary, DIPP for appropriate action same day.
CAIT National President Mr. B.C.Bhartia & Secretary General Mr. Praveen Khandelwal said that it is much regretted that almost a week has gone but so far no action has been taken against such e commerce portals as a result of which some of them are again going to violate the FDI policy which is evident from the fact that similar big Advertisements are visible for different kind of festival Sales on the occasion of Diwali for the purpose of attracting public in general which is utter violation of the FDI Policy as these e commerce portals are certainly not allowed to conduct Business to Consumer activities rather they are restricted to conduct only Business to Business activities.
They questioned as to why the Government is not taking any action against these e commerce players who are violating Government’s policy openly and dearly without any fear of law or rules and regulations. Such conduct on this issue and also raised few questions  like what is preventing the Government in taking any action against these portals. Is there any hidden pressure for not taking any action . In spite of making written complaints since last three years, no action has been taken which is encouraging these e commerce portals to violate the policy and proving it as a joke of the Government. Whether law is different or its interpretation is different for different people.
Both Mr. Bhartia & Mr. Khandelwal said that such an attitude of the Government for not taking any action is directly and adversely affecting the business of brick and mortar shops due to uneven level playing field. They further said that if its complaint is wrong and not in accordance with the policy laid down by the Government, they should be informed and if the Complaint is genuine, then action should be taken immediately.
The CAIT has demanded  to take immediate action against policy defaulter e commerce companies and impose ban on working of their portal and conduct an impartial inquiry into the issues raised by us and we should be given an opportunity of hearing.
It has categorically said that if no action is taken by the Government immediately, we shall be compelled to take shelter of the Court of Law for obtaining justice entirely on risk and cost of the Government.
