Красный цвет, “червонность”, и “Смерть Сталина”

Данный киноплакат из Любляны (в июне) интересен тем, что:

а) в Словении также издеваются над кириллицей;

б) русский и словенский отличаются от всеж других славянских языков тем, что у них красный цвет никак не червонный.

Tu so barve, po slovensko, angleško in v Sanskrtu. Dodal pa sem še sanskrtske glasoslovne vzporednice (fonetične paralele) z angleškim prevodom: 
Slovensko English Sanskrit // English – Sanskrit
Barva – color varna // to digest – bharv
Bela – white – balakša // power, the sun – bala
Rumena -yellow – hariman // yellow – hariman
Oranžna – orange – naranga varna // orange tree – naranga
Rdeča red – rakta, lohita // growth – rddhi 
Violična (lila) – violet – nila lohita // blue – nila
Modra (plava) blue – nila // sea (swim)-samudra (plava)
Zelena – green -samula // fluid, water – jala
Rjava – brown – kadru // honesty, nobility -aryava 
Siva – grey -dhumra // bright – šveta 
Črna – – black -kršna // powder – čurna

Интересно, спасибо. Думаю, что red/rdeča восходят к праиндоевропейскому корню *h₁rewdʰ-, означающему то же. По каким причнинам русские и словенцы отказались от червей (и от братских славян) в этой связи мне остается неизвестно.

Česky by to šlo napsat jako čer(ven)ná komedie. Černa = black, červená = red. Opravdový český titul je ale “Ztratili jsme Stalin” (We’ve Lost Stalin) se sloganem “Komedie, při které uvidíte rudě” (A comedy which will make you see red).

Смотрел фильм здесь в Лондоне, никак не фигурировал красный цвет. Кажется, что интерес к этой теме возник впервые в Восточной Европе. Не знаю, насколько такая любовь к красному цвету харатерна для всех славян (оставляя в стороне русских).

Walk through the sites of revolutionary thinking, 23 November

November 24, 2013
Tatiana outside Saatchi & Saatchi

Tatiana outside Saatchi & Saatchi–the Communist Club that stood on this site housed a session of the RSDLP congress of 1905

This walk, facilitated by Tatiana Baskakova, was devoted to various London sites connected with Russian revolutionaries.  I think she had started off intending to devote it to Lenin, then found that the anarchists were more to her liking.

Along the way, we discussed some relevant questions, such as Is walking a revolutionary practice?  and Is it suspicious that the buildings occupied by radicals have disappeared? and indeed Did Ilyich stop at Pret for some lunch?

Here are some pictures:

–Dear Tatiana,  Do let me thank you for all the preparation you must have put in to create such an interesting walk for us today, and for all of your input on the walk itself.

–Thank you for joining the walk, and staying along till the final line. It was a pleasure to organise it, and have you, and everyone around.

There’s a very interesting series of posts on Russians in London (including revolutionaries) on Sarah Young’s blog here; and also a fascinating map.
