Iron Triangle, Richmond, California

The Iron Triangle, sometimes known as Central Richmond, is a neighborhood in Richmond, California. It is a residential area but includes the downtown Richmond business district along Macdonald Avenue. Commercial areas on Cutting Boulevard and near Interstate 580 are in the neighborhood if the more extensive of two possible definitions of its area is used; the neighborhood gets its name from three major railroad tracks which form a rough triangle and define its boundaries. The northeastern side of the Iron Triangle is the Union Pacific Railroad/BART tracks that run beside Carlson Boulevard, Espee Avenue, Portola Avenue, 13th Street; the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway tracks that parallel Richmond Parkway/Garrard Boulevard form the northwest side of the triangle. The southern side of the triangle is considered to be the now abandoned Santa Fe tracks that ran between Ohio and Chanslor Avenues and are being developed as the Richmond Greenway; because those tracks have been removed, the southern boundary of the neighborhood is now considered to be the BNSF tracks that run just south of Interstate 580.

The area is well known as the heart of Richmond's African-American community. It has a population of 19,807 and is 66% African-American; the Latino community has been growing in the Iron Triangle since the late 1980s, making up about 34 percent of Iron Triangle's population. The first Mexican community in Richmond started in the lower part of the Iron Triangle at the bottom of Macdonald Ave below 5th St and at A St and B St in the 1920s. Atchison and Santa Fe Railway began bringing Mexican workers to work in the Santa Fe Rail Yard in Richmond; the Railroad built a Housing Project for Mexican railroad workers called Section housing, located on Macdonald Avenue and Gerrard Blvd. A small Mexican community started to form at the bottom of Macdonald Ave that grew during World War II by Mexican-American shipyard workers who came from the Southwestern United States. There were several Mexican-owned businesses in the Iron Triangle during that war era: La Perla, Richmond's first Mexican grocery store.

The Iron Triangle is known as a high-crime area and has become known as a'warzone' in neighboring cities. Residents are attempting to reverse this image in a number of ways. One of these is the new East Bay Center for the Performing Arts at MacDonald and 11th St, which contains the aptly-named Iron Triangle Theater. Lillie May Jones was an Iron Triangle resident and long time activist in the neighborhood, she advocated for the creation of the Richmond Greenway rails to trails project, community gardens, environmental education, flower planting.

Anbe Aaruyire (2005 film)

Anbe Aaruyire is a 2005 Indian Tamil language romantic drama film directed by S. J. Surya; the film stars him, debutant Nila, Santhana Bharathi and Santhanam. The score and soundtrack are composed by A. R. Rahman; the movie was met with controversy before release due to its original name of "B. F." which according to the director stood for "best friend" but is a common acronym for "blue film" in India. A contest was subsequently held in, it is a spiritual successor of S. J. Surya's 2000 film Kushi starring Jyothika. Siva is an investigative scribe who shares a live-in relationship with bratty Madhu, they have hot-headed run-ins and hotter patch-ups. Things come to a head. Nosy and envious Siva cannot take it, this causes a split between the duo. Fun starts, they come together, but there is plenty of over-the-top entertainment aimed at a post-teen youth audience. Anbe Aaruyire features the memories of each other in a human lookalike appearances; these memories remind them of their good times and the inner love for each other, which help in their reunion.

SJ Surya announced a film titled Isai in 2004 shortly after the release of New, when he revealed that A. R. Rahman would collaborate for two further ventures titled Anbulla Nanbane and Aezhumazhai vs Chitra. While Isai was postponed, Anbulla Nanbane developed under the title Best Friend, before the title Anbe Aaruyire was finalised; the film was titled BF, an acronym of Best Friend but he was met with a protest from Tamil Protection Movement led by PMK leader Ramadoss and Dalit Panthers of India leader Thol Thirumavalavan to change the title. After three months of its launch, Surya changed the name from BF to Ah Aah, the first two letters in the Tamil Alphabet. Featuring himself in the lead role again, he signed up newcomer Meera Chopra for the film and rechristened her under the stage name Nila, after considering the stagename of Junior Simran, owing to her likeness to Simran, he revealed that he was inspired to make the film to convey that young lovers must give each other space and wanted to showcase that attitudes towards relationships by the Indian youth was changing from the previous decade.

He called the film a "sequel to Kushi", revealing that the film's lead actors would have similar ego clashes. The soundtrack features six songs composed by lyrics penned by Vaali; the song "Anbe Aaruyire" was composed in 2004 for the shelved K. S. Ravikumar-Rajinikanth venture Jaggubhai, Surya requested Rahman if the song could be used in his film instead. Like New, the film faced hurdles prior to release with the censor boards insisting on several cuts and Surya's ongoing legal tussles meant the film was delayed; the film opened to mixed reviews in September 2005, with Sify.com labelling it as "adult entertainment" though added he "tries hard to bring his character Shiva to life but has to go miles as far as dialogue delivery and voice modulation goes but has improved leaps and bound on the dancing front". The film became his fourth consecutive commercial success in Tamil films, with Surya adamant on thanking his crew for helping get through the controversies, labelling that "team effort" helped them overcome the problems.
