Alas (read atlast ), i'm back !

57)"definitely not photoshopped..."

An easy one for today....a wiki explanation of what??

X is a natural building material made from sand, clay, water, and some kind of fibrous or organic material (sticks, straw, and/or manure), which the builders shape into bricks using frames and dry in the sun. X buildings are similar to cob and mud brick buildings. X structures are extremely durable, and account for some of the oldest existing buildings in the world. In hot climates, compared with wooden buildings, X buildings offer significant advantages due to their greater thermal mass, but they are known to be particularly susceptible to earthquake damage.






X-Adobe.
(pic shown is that of an adobe kiln).

53) " learning values..? "


Evidently, X is just a piece of paper.But,on terms of being a device that helps register our anguish and refusal to participate in bribery,X has been path breaking.X was unveiled in India by Y,a non profit organization in 2007.Since then,learned people acquainted with X has made good use of it,when faced with a demand of bribe.The concept of X is credited to Satinder Mohan Bhagat,an Indian expatriate who is currently a professor of physics at University Of Maryland.The concept,has so far been adopted in two other countries,Nepal and Mexico.
Identify X and Y.


PS-This question is a tribute to all the Indian politicians and bureaucrats,like A.Raja and Suresh kalmadi,  who have been lucky enough to experience the warmth and hospitality of Tihar Jail.The services that they have rendered have been exemplary and all credits to India's position in the World Corruption Index goes to them.I hope that their counterparts and accomplices, out  there in the open, keep up the good work and help us achieve lower positions in the corruption index,while their minions,ie, 'us,the people' continue to look forward to 'Yoga babas' for justice . Incredible India !

50)Number 50 especiale...

Hurrah!!!another achievement....we've clocked 50!! And i'm glowing with pride...:)

Now for the number 50 special....
Many of A's works are associated with B through a certain location,call it R......now one of these works,let's call it S has been instrumental in laying the backbone for a project X,which has also derived its name from the work S...
Now project X has one of its leading personalities(to say) related with C,let's say to make things a little more clear,with C's name...Also one of C's works have been discussed(if for a short time) in the project,to complete the connect.....
Explain pleazze...








A-Hieronimus Bosch
B-equestrian painting of CharlesV(kept in the Museo del prado(R)
C-Somerset Maugham

One of the works of Hieronimus Bosch kept in the Museo del prado is the The Seven Deadly Sins and the Four Last Things(S)..... Now the painting is said to have inspired the movie Se7en(X),by David Fincher,and the movie's story(most obviously the 'backbone' as in the question) revolves around this subject...The movie's lead character Detective Lt. William Somerset (played by Morgan Freeman) is named after Somerset Maugham(C)...Also his work Of Human Bondage,is discussed in the movie between detective David Mills and Detective Lt. William Somerset.....
And i'm so sad that this went uncracked.....and worse....unattempted..:(
