Where can you find the story of La Tomatina by Alberto Ibanez?

La Tomatina

por Alberto Ibáñez

El ultimo miércoles de cada agosto miles de amontonados cuerpos escasamente vestidos aguardan el inicio de la fiesta más representativa del carácter valenciano, la Tomatina. Durante meses, muchos han aguardado desesperadamente la llegada de la celebración que, por su colorido, recuerda las bacanales romanas. La muchedumbre esta dispuesta a divertirse y olvidarse del mundo exterior.

Un total de 150 toneladas de jitomate maduro vuela por los aires como proyectil en la que es, probablemente, la guerra de comida más grande del mundo y, ciertamente, la más sucia. "Se ruega encarecidamente que antes de arrojar los tomates, se deshagan en la mano", advierten los organizadores, quizá a fin de evitar accidentes o para que la calles se conviertan más rápido en una piscina de puré.

La contienda da inicio a las once de la mañana en el pueblo de Bunol, m8uy cercano a la ciudad de Valencia, y a él acuden decenas de miles de excéntricos, entre españoles de diferentes partes del país y extranjeros; lo sorprendente es que la sede del evento apenas alcanza los 9.000 habitantes. Los asistentes al convivo corean: "tomate, tomate, queremos tomate", y entonces, desde camiones de carga, empiezan a repartirse las municiones. Cualquier cosa que se mueva es un blanco valido, hasta los testigos más neutros y pasivos. Los incesantes tomatazos vienen de todas partes; todo el mundo sabe que esta es una guerra en la que no habrá vencedores, quede hecha una sopa colorada. De hecho, el objetivo principal de esta celebración es darle a Bunol un baño de sangre vegetal.

La Tomatina se celebro por primera ocasión después de terminada la Segunda Guerra Mundial, alrededor de 1945- el color escarlata de la festividad fue una paradoja-. Sin duda, es una fiesta popular creada por y para el pueblo. Dicen que nació en los desfiles de "gigantes y cabezudos" de Bunol, que siempre terminaban a tomatazos. Como en sus inicios, la Tomatina carecía de reglas y de una organización formal, al gobierno, en esa época encabezado por el dictador Francisco Franco, le pareció un desorden excesivo y prohibió su festejo a principios ese los años cincuenta. No obstante, los más decididos desafiaban a las autoridades y se lanzaban a la plaza del pueblo para continuar con la entonces joven tradición. La Guardia Civil se hizo presente en numerosas ocasiones realizando algunas detenciones. Los agresores era dirigíos a la cárcel entre bromas y risas, para ser liberados poco tiempo después; sin embargo, y por desgracia, también se registraron algunos arrestos violetos.

No fue sino hasta 1959, gracias a la insistente petición del pueblo de Bunol para que se autorizara la Tomatina, cuando las autoridades entendieron que la celebración era algo inevitable. Pronto, los medios de comunicación empezaron a cubrir el evento y este alcanzo una popularidad arrolladora, atrayendo así a más y más curiosos que querían nadar en kétchup.

A las una de la tarde, hora en que concluyen las agresiones, la plaza de Bunol queda cubierta de una pasta roja que llega hasta tobillos. Los mas agotados se dejan caer al suelo, otros siguen riendo y la mayoría se dirige había las regaderas que se han instalado provisionalmente para enjuagar el acido jugo del cuerpo. Este es también el momento para limpiar el pueblo, a cuyo menester quedan invitados todos los presentes; definitivamente esta es la parte mas aburrida del evento.

Para muchos, este derroche de color rojo y de tomates es una verdadera incógnita. ¿Por qué arrojárselos unos a otras cuando hay escasez de alimentos en el mundo? La respuesta de los bunolenses es otra pregunta que puede parecer cínica: "¿Por qué no? La vida es corta y hay que divertirse, así que para que amargarse con esta cuestiones de la hambruna mundial". Además, la Tomatina ha traído fama internacional y una derrama económica importante al minúsculo Bunol.

How do you Plan the Ideal Event?

How to Plan the Ideal Event Planning an event is easy if you have the right event planner to hand. Unfortunately some people are unable to enjoy their special Event because they expend so much energy planning the event within a tight schedule. Any event, whether it is a wedding, birthday, dinner party or corporate event can be a smashing success if due diligence is taken from the onset. The main tools you need for your event are a note pad, a pen, a calendar and If you're looking for the Event Planners in Delhi or close to your city, some types are available which may be useful to get the best one:

Set the Date Well finally you are getting married, moving home, turning 40, 60, 18 or you just want to celebrate an achievement. With the constant change in seasons, there is no longer an appropriate month for any event. People get married in January and hold barbecues in October, as long as guests are comfortable and you have the ideal venue.

Party Theme The number of guests and the venue will determine to a large extent the theme of your party. If you have always wanted a James Bond themed wedding or a carnival birthday party, you need to consider your options. Will your granny or older relatives be willing to participate in a high-energy event or can your living room host a carnival theme?

Find a Suitable Venue Finding a venue and deciding on the party theme have a symbiotic relationship i.e. one relies on the other. Book your venue well ahead of the event date, so you get what you want and not just what is on offer. Decide on the location of your event i.e. garden party with marquee, banquet hall, house party, hotel, pub, recreation hall etc. Search online for available venues or use your local directory, be willing to look further afield for the right location. Call up the venues to book viewing appointments early. Find out what else is part of the package; does the service include the use of the bar, kitchen, changing rooms, car park and other facilities? Make sure you are clear about the contract before you commit to hiring a venue. Have a choice of dates to hand, just in case your preferred date is not available. Always get a second opinion on the venue and read reviews of their services.
