Helsinki Book Fair 2018

In the Helsinki Book Fair stages like Waltari and Eino Leino, which were named according to the famous Finnish authors are now a thing of the past, since this year 2018 the Book Fair introduced us various stages for authors and other performers named by the actual neighborhoods of Helsinki.

Here below you can see the participating neighborhoods from the Helsinki Book Fair. The Book Fair will still be happening today Sunday 28.10.2018 in the Helsinki Fair Centre in Pasila, and the theme country of this year is the United States of America, with authors like Jennifer Clement, Patricia Lockwood and Cecilia Samartin visiting the Book Fair.

After the Book Fair, the life of the participating stages continues in Twitter – open the attached tweets to read more about them:

Indivue recommends: Helsinki, and other tweets, from February 2017

As I mentioned in my previous post, Indivue is also active in the social media, both in Finnish and in English.

Twitter Analytics tells in its summary that one year back, in February 2016, Indivue made

  • 24 Tweets in a month, which had altogether
  • 2,844 Tweet impressions, which led to
  • 507 Profile visits

And one year later, in February 2017, Twitter Analytics tells that Indivue made

  • 45 Tweets in a month, which had altogether
  • 3848 Tweet impressions, which led to
  • 863 Profile visits

Those impressions are a lot more than what happens with a regular Facebook Page, according to Facebook analytics. Facebook gives your posts hardly any visibility, unless you pay money to them, because in Facebook only money talks. That’s what I’m told.

So, I’m really curious to know, will it make any difference in the Twitter Analytics if one re-blogs the tweets, which have already been made. – Since those hashtags in tweets are forever valid and very much up-to-date, why not re-read!

Consequently, here are the

Best of Indivue tweets in February 2017

In February Indivue tweeted about Jaipur, the so called Pink City in India, in the state of Karnataka. In the video tweeted, the images and music are all by Indivue, as usual.

Indivue tweeted also about Gokarn, which is a lovely small village in the state of Karnataka on the West coast of India, little bit south from Goa.
The link in the tweet takes you to some photos from Gokarn, a few years back from now.

Some ten years back I posted my first videos to YouTube. They were about sightseeing Mumbai and I had put some Bollywood hit music on the background.

What happened then was, that YouTube banned that video, because some big international music company had made a complaint, since their music was being used for free in that video.

So, ten years later, the music in this video will be composed by me only.

Despite of the previously mentioned harsh attitude of a big international company, Indivue has been blogging in Finnish about Bollywood and Hindi cinema for some ten years now, and in February 2017 discussed about the Bollywood premieres of 2017.

Here’s the tweet:

The Article of the Month of February 2017 in the Finnish Indivue site was about the best Bollywood movies of this millennium, 2000-2016. Reviewed by Indivue.

Although that article is in Finnish, it is very easy to understand in any language, and is very useful, so do take a look if you’re into Hindi cinema! What makes this article so special is that these Bollywood movie reviews are based on subtitles and Western upbringing. So it might differ from the Indian taste.

You might also wonder how on earth did one get to see all these movies in Finland, since they didn’t come from the Finnish cinema or theatres, and the fact is – one had to go and buy them from India. Most of them.

Nowadays there are also some Indian movie premieres coming to Finnish theatres, as can be read from the Finnish site of Indivue. So times they are a-changing. For the better.

With the tweet Ideas for Rome Indivue shared recent travel tips and ideas for Rome, Italy. Check them out if you’re planning to travel there!

Whereas the article of India photography shared some photos blogged in www.indivue.blogspot.com during the past ten years.

The video Lost & Found from Goa beach conveyed one hot sunny afternoon from Goa beach itself.

Images and music by Indivue.

And near the beach, where the previous video was made, is located one beautiful Goan five star hotel, which is Park Hyatt Goa. Indivue stayed there and made an article about it in Finnish – Take a look.

Perhaps fulfill your dream and have a stay? Taste the best food ever.

And then, last but not least, in February Indivue tweeted all these images of Helsinki summertime, with the link to reviews and hints of good Helsinki sights.

Those reviews and hints are in English, so make sure to check them out with time – Helsinki really is a beautiful and safe summertime city to travel to!

Indivue tweets in June 2014

Back in 2014 the heat in India was so high, that even the Finnish news channels mentioned it. Delhi people had made noice because of the power cuts.

No wonder if the atmosphere is heated when the temperature is +48C, since it will feel like going to a sauna when you take a mere shower.

Here’s some photos from Agra in +44C heat.

Interestingly BBC told in June that the beautiful Taj Mahal in India has suffered because of the pollution. This is why people in India were going to give it a mud treatment in order to remove the yellow colorings.

Having experienced a professional Indian mud facial, Indivue has no doubt that this mud treatment won’t work.


 15th of June was a Father’s Day in India and 21st of June was a Midsummer in Finland. Good news was that a first Bollywood movie will be shot in Finland, partially. The movie is called Shamitabh and it is starring Amitabh Bachchan. The premiere of the movie might be in February 2015.

Unfortunately Amitabh Bachchan did not come to Finland for the shooting, but the good thing is that Finland will now be a part of a Bollywood movie after so many years of blogging about Bollywood in Finnish.

And talking about Bollywood, one movie review was also made in June. It was about Shaadi Ke Side-Effects, which unseriously reminded us about the bad sides of marriage and how to beat the marriage problems happily.

Shaadi Ke Side Effects got three stars (***) from Indivue.
