New Delhi, Nov 29 (IANS) Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi Tuesday addressed the valedictory function of the Indian Youth Congress (IYC) conclave, held here under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, and reiterated that an effective Lokpal bill will be brought soon. The prime minister used the occasion to strongly defend the cabinet decision to allow FDI in retail and ruled out a roll back. The conclave, called Buniyaad or foundation, is the biggest organisational convention since Rahul Gandhi took over as party general secretary in charge of the youth wing four years ago. Addressing the young Congress leaders at the Japanese Park in Rohini in north-west Delhi, the prime minister said the government will bring several laws to prevent corruption and make governance effective. “These include legislations for Lokpal, Citizens’ Grievance Redressal and Public Procurement.” Sonia Gandhi said she hoped the opposition will support the government in passing the legislations.

I hope the opposition will support us in passing these important measures,” she said in her nine-minute speech -- the first public speech after her surgery abroad for an undisclosed illness

Can’t stigmatise judiciary, apex court warns CBI

New Delhi, Nov 29 (IANS) “One can’t stigmatise the judiciary,” the Supreme Court Tuesday said, slamming the CBI for casting aspersions on the subordinate judiciary in Gujarat while seeking the transfer of the 2005 Sohrabuddin Sheikh killing’s trial outside the state. An apex court bench of Justice Aftab Alam and Justice R.P. Desai pulled up the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) when Additional Advocate General of Gujarat Tushar Mehta drew the court’s attention to a controversial paragraph in the transfer petition.


IANS: Voting has begun in the Odisha bypoll for the Umerkote assembly seat (necessitated after the killing of Biju Janana Dal (BJD) member Jagabandhu Majhi by gunmen); in the Haryana bypoll for the two assembly seats of Adampur and Ratia(following the election of Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) candidate Kuldeep Bishnoi to parliament); in the Himachal Pradesh bypoll for the Renuka and Nalagarh constituencies and in the Karnataka bypoll for the Bellary Rural assembly seat (where mining barons Reddy brothers are taking on the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) while being its members).

police said. Katiyar, who shot to fame for spearheading the Ayodhya temple movement in the late 1980s and early 1990s and was the founder president of the Bajrang Dal, lodged a first information report (FIR) with the Ram Janmabhoomi police station in Ayodhya alleging that he received a threatening call from an unidentified caller in Dubai.

The investigating agency’s trial transfer plea said that the accused, who include former minister Amit Shah, had their kith and kin in Gujarat’s subordinate judiciary which could result in miscarriage of justice. “This is a highly irresponsible statement. Have you asked for initiation of contempt proceedings,” the court observed when Mehta drew its attention to the CBI

plea. The investigating agency’s petition said that when Shah was presented in a Gujarat court “there was open servility and excessive demonstration of favourable and partisan attitude to Amit Shah by the learned chief judicial magistrate”. “It is totally wrong, wholly irresponsible and impermissible (to say) that judiciary at the lowest rung was toeing some political line. There may be one or two isolated incidents,” the court said.

When the staff of the eatery was about to serve the two newcomers with paranthas, a dispute broke out between them over who should be served first. It soon snowballed into a clash. Even though a policeman on patrol pacified them, the quarrel broke out again after some time and turned physical. Chetan and Vijay overpowered Shailaj and Siddharth, and hit them with sticks and sharp-edged objects, and fled the spot. According to friends and relatives of the two men, none of those present, including the staff of the eatery, tried to help the duo who used to frequent the shop.

New Delhi, Nov 29 (IANS) In one more instance of callousness in the national capital, two young men and brutally beaten up, lay by the roadside, bleeding, pleading for help for more than half-an-hour no one heeded their calls. One man succumbed due to excessive bleeding. Perhaps his life could have been saved if someone had heeded their calls. The two young men from Chittaranjan Park in south Delhi were brutally beaten near a roadside eatery by two men in the early hours of dawn on Monday, resulting in the death of one of them. The two, Shailaj Roy and Siddharth Roy, had driven down to a makeshift stall selling paranthas near a gurudwara on the Govindpuri main road at around 4 a.m.

Another highlight will be the popular girl-band Zeb and Hanya from the conflict-torn Peshawar in Pakistan.

Zeb and Hanya’s debut album “Chup (Hush)”, which received glowing reviews in Pakistan, has been described by critics as a new canon of jazz-influenced numbers and blues in Urdu. All songs in the album, barring one, were written by Haniya and Zeb. Their songs are influenced by the classical tradition of the Indian subcontinent, Latin and West African grooves, American folk and blues.

London, Nov 29 (IANS) Mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in Oslo in July, cannot be held accountable for his actions and put on trial. He will be sentenced to treatment at a psychiatric hospital, court-appointed psychiatrists said Tuesday. The psychiatric report has been seen by Norwegian newspaper VG, Sky News reported. It reportedly said 32-year-old Breivik was "mentally ill" and therefore "not responsible for his actions" when he killed the 77 people in twin attacks with bombs and automatic weapons.

China readies big climate offer, India mulls support

Durban, Nov 29 (IANS) China is ready to offer legally binding commitments to limit its emission of greenhouse gases (GHG). If the offer, to come into effect after 2020, is made and accepted, it may rescue stalled global climate negotiations but will also put immense pressure on India to make a similar offer. Indian delegates at the climate summit that started on Monday are mulling whether to support the Chinese move. There is no agreement among them yet. Senior members of the Chinese government delegation, gathered in this South African port city for the Nov 28-Dec 9 summit of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), confirmed that China was ready to offer that the voluntary pledge it made in 2009 be made legally binding under the UN auspices.

The "British Newspaper Archive", made up of four million pages, contains articles from local and regional papers since 1700, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Breivik has admitted setting off a car bomb outside government offices in Oslo July 22, killing eight people, before going on a shooting rampage on the nearby island of Utoya where the ruling Labour Party's youth wing was hosting a summer camp. Sixty-nine people, mostly teenagers, were killed in the massacre on the island. In a manifesto he published on internet before the attacks, Breivik said he was on a "crusade" against Islam and also professed his hatred for Western-style democracy.

Major global IT Company to ban e-mail London, Nov 29 (IANS) Atos, one of biggest information technology companies in the world with over 80,000 workers in 42 countries, will soon ban e-mails because it says 90 percent of them are a waste of time. Atos, headquartered in France, said too many employees waste time dealing with irrelevant e-mails, according to the Daily Mail. The company would phase out e-mailing within 18 months, and said it wants people to spend more time talking to each other -- either on the phone or in person.

worst affected. These emissions rose by a record six percent in 2010 from 2009 as the world pumped an extra 564 million tonnes of carbon into the air, according to a calculation by the US Department of Energy. Now many rich nations - including the US, which never signed the Protocol - are insisting that emerging economies like China and India take on legally binding commitments to limit their emissions, before they will sign on to anything for the post-2012 period. Rich nations point out that China is the largest GHG emitter today, and India is fourth - with the US and Russia in between. So, they say, their signing on to anything will have little impact on combating climate change unless emerging economies "come on board", as US President Barak Obama put it.

New Delhi, Nov 29 (IANS): Cashstrapped national carrier Air India’s board Tuesday said its lenders have agreed to restructure the airline’s massive debt of Rs.42,923.16 crore, after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) gave the nod to the financial restructure plan (FRP) for the carrier. The development comes after Air India’s management met the lenders Monday to discuss the RBI approval for the restructuring. Now the airline will present the FRP to the Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee-led group of ministers (GoM) which is

gin an indefinite fast, demanding their reinstatement and also recognition of the union that is truly representative of the workers. The reason for the current problem at the Indian subsidiary of the South Korean auto maker Hyundai is the reduction of workforce on the assembly line and their redeployment in other works. The redeployment was made after the company started production of new small car Eon. The number of components in Eon is low as compared to other models and hence the management decided to redeploy the work force for their efficient utilization, workers told IANS.

IN BRIEF India’s insurable population over 57 crore New Delhi, Nov 29 (IANS): The approximate total number of insurable Indians is over 57 crore, parliament was informed Tuesday. “Based on the working population, as per census 2001 data, the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) has reported that the approximate total number of insurable persons in the country is 57,03,35,944,” Minister of State for Finance Namo Narain Meena told the Rajya Sabha in a written reply.

8.7 percent interest on new post office savings scheme New Delhi, Nov 29 (IANS): The government will introduce a new post office savings scheme of 10-year maturity effective from Dec 1, that will earn annual compound interest rate of 8.7 percent.

looking into the airlines’ turnaround and financial restructure plan. The FRP envisages restructuring of the Rs.42,923.16 crore debt the airline has accumulated for working capital and aircraft acquisition from a consortium of banks, which includes State Bank of India, IDBI and Bank of Baroda. The airline’s board also decided to lease out the excessive capacity that it has on 747 and 777-200 aircraft, after the carrier inducts the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The board also decided to sell and lease back its 787, if it gets permission to buy them. Under

the model, aircraft are sold to a lessor, who immediately leases back the aircraft to the airline. The transaction is said to give the company extra funds, and the airplane can also serve as collateral for loan. The airline’s board further decided on some cost-cutting measures like removing of standard food items on a flight of less than 90 minutes. Other issues like route rationalization, cabin restructuring and human resource (HR) integration, were also discussed. But the key issue of voluntary retirement scheme (VRS) was left out, said the official.

Innovation network, dedicated fund can tackle energy challenge: Report New Delhi, Nov 29 (IANS): International innovation network for least developed countries (LDC) with focus on renewable energy technologies (RET), dedicated fund structures and training platforms are vital for addressing the global energy challenge, a study said Tuesday. “The report recommends that this centre could build an international innovation network focusing on enhancing RET-based learning in LDCs with the purpose of promoting greater access to energy. Such a network would fit in directly with the currently identified key areas of work for the centre,” said the Technology and Innovation Report 2011 of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). The report also proposed global and regional research funds for the development of RETs, international RET transfer fund and RETs training platform to foster technological development and innovation. According to the report, the diffusion of RETs in developing countries involves much more than transferring technology hardware from one location to another. It requires a targeted international effort and there is an urgent need to mobilize resources and accelerate efforts to ensure universal access to energy by creating an enabling environment for the promotion and use of renewable energy technologies. The report recommended dedicated funds which could act as the focal point for the coordination of ongoing research, both at the national and the regional level, and among private, public and nonprofit organizations

New Delhi, Nov 29 (IANS): Petrol costs more in India when compared to neighboring countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and is even dearer than what is charged in the US, the petroleum ministry said in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha Tuesday. According to the reply by Minister of State for Petroleum R.P.N. Singh, one litre of petrol costs Rs.48.64 in Pakistan, Rs.52.42 in Bangladesh and Rs.61.38 in Sri Lanka. In India, the fuel costs Rs.66.42, despite oil marketing companies reducing prices Nov 16. Even in the US, petrol costs much less -- at Rs.44.88 a litre. The government has always been criticized for the skewed tax structure on petrol and diesel. The minister, however, said the central government’s revenue does not increase with increase in the price of these products as the excise duties were specific. The excise duties on petrol are currently at Rs.14.78 per litre, and on diesel Rs.2.06 per litre, said Singh. After the last downward revision of Rs.2.22, petrol now retails at Rs.66.42 in Delhi. However, diesel costs much less at Rs.40.91 in the national capital.

Theory of Happiness

What is that one thing that pops into our head when we say refreshing, minty and good for the teeth, surely people will say its toothpaste, but when we also say that it’s chewable, and then it becomes very clear, we are talking about ‘Gum’. Chewing gum a common fare amongst children initially, has become quite popular among the older group as well. Be it male or female, people love chewing gums. Whether it is to prevent bad breath, to fight cavities or just to keep something in the mouth, chewing gums are favored by all. Chewing gums were also supplied to soldiers


away. Happiness does not require a proficiency in keeping ourselves blissed out, rather being like a new born who can easily be made happy by infant toys.

Surely for a common man, the state of felicity has nothing to do with the above jargons. In fact words may fall

The ancient Greeks chewed mastiche gum that is obtained from the resin of a mastic tree, the Mayans chewed the sap from the sapodilla tree and the Indian Americans chewed the resin from the spruce trees. The first commercial chewing gum was developed and sold by John B. Curtis in 1848 and it was called, ‘The State of Maine Pure Spruce Gum’. In 1850 he started selling flavored gums which took precedence as the more popular form than the spruce gums. In 1869 Antonio Lopez De Santa Anna, the Mexican general put forward his idea of chicle to the American inventor Thomas Adams. He began to make chicle toys, rainboots and masks there- after but failed in

The Chew Story

We still remember some of the memories of past. Our first trophy of excellence, the first bicycle, the day we fell in love and other numerous memories. A momentary thought of these open-eyed-reams bring a smile on our face and we desire to live those moments again. Isn’t it a bit weird that we in the present enjoy the past marjoram of happiness? With time and age, the ravishing fragrance of these past gaieties will surely tarnish

short if we begin to explain the true and hidden meaning of happiness. But on short note, happiness is like a philosopher’s stone. The one who touches it exults with joy and flies high above cloud nine. But the present scenario reveals a different meaning of happiness for the today’s mortal being. For many of us, becoming a successful person, having a well settled life might be the means of happiness. We aim for acquisitive and object oriented happiness. No doubt that would make us happy and jolly, but till it persists. Human ideology to achieve things in short period of time has made them think mechanically. Happiness achieved by materialistic approach lasts for a short period of time and once it vanishes, we rejoice over them with our visualization. 12 muscles are required to smile, but it requires careless participation of every part of our body to mirth. Yes a careless attempt will make us free slack. Joviality is all about being happy and making others feel so too. Suppose you are the richest man on this planet; But what is the sole purpose of such comforts if we don’t have someone else to be a part of our triumph and to rejoice with us. It’s better to walk in air with someone holding our hand, who knows the importance of

every attempt. In 1869, he thought of adding flavour to chicle and the first chewing gum that was marketed was called ‘Adams New York Chewing Gum’. In 1870 he opened the world’s first chewing gum factory and in 1871 he invented a machine for its manufacture. Although Thomas Adams did create a licorice-flavoured gum called ‘Black Jack’ that year all his gums had the problem of not being able to hold flavour. In 1880 Dr. Edward Beeman solved the above shortcoming by adding pepsin powder and inventing a gum that served as a ‘digestive aid’. This was the next big discovery in the field of gums. A type of this gum known by the name of ‘Beemans Chewing Gum’ is still available today. William White also created the first flavoured gum called ‘Yucatan’ by combining corn syrup to chicle and adding peppermint extract. He found out through his creation that the peppermint flavour stayed on for a longer time than the other ones. Raging interest to bring about ingenuity led to the first chewing gum being sold out from a vending machine, Tutti-Frutti which was created by Thomas Adams in 1888. William

Wrigley Jr. founded the Wrigley Chewing Gum in 1891. By 1900’s chewing gum had become quite popular in all its aspects. Due to rising health consciousness among the people by the 1950’s, many sugarless gums were also created. E x per i ment at ions with numerous flavours by different inventors have led to the emergence of a variety of gums- vanilla, coke, mint, cinnamon and various fruit flavours. Gums are also found in an array of shapes and sizes such as gumballs, bubblegum, sugar free, tube gum, stick gum, powdered gum and candy-gum combinations. Chewing gum was banned in Singapore for 12 years because of incorrect disposal of it which would be stuck under chairs, tables, it was lifted in 2004. Still obtaining a gum

continues to be quite difficult and only gum of therapeutic value is allowed there. In spite of all the years long failed experiments and controversies, popularity for gum has grown over the years. The desire to create new flavours still runs wild among big companies which are successfully enjoyed by the people all over the world.

We all know the saying about regretting what we don’t do in life. We’ve all experienced the ‘I should have said’ scenario. Hindsight is as wonderful as it is frustrating when it comes to being aware of what we could have or should have said in certain situations. An opportunity exists for you to speak your mind in a way you have wanted to do for some time. Say what needs to be said. Holding back will only cause resentment and regret on your part later.

Nothing produces a result like making a conscious decision to make something happen. You appear to have looked for some time at a situation, wondering how best to approach or tackle it. An obvious way forward may not have been apparent but the time has come to at least experiment with what might happen if you chose to invest even the tiniest amount of effort now. Try it. You might like it.

Years ago, doom mongers publicized the end of the world by wearing sandwich-style placards and wandering city streets. Nowadays, there are more immediate and far-reaching platforms to allow them to promote the message. We can all choose to worry about worst possible scenarios or we can accept that best possible outcomes do happen sometimes. You’re about to discover the latter. You don’t need to believe the worst outcome is inevitable.

Don’t live life with any regrets!

All you need is a little push now and then in the right direction!

Be positive and good things will happen for you!




We spoke recently of a need for you to understand how much is going on behind the scenes regarding something you appear anxious to sort and it’s important you do so now. It might appear someone is using delaying tactics or not giving something you believe to crucial as much attention as you believe they could be but they are working hard in the background. They’ll appreciate your patience and understanding for a bit longer.

We’re constantly told to be focused and responsible. We’re told that people who don’t take such things seriously are lazy or should be more focused and responsible! There’s a lot to be said now for you taking things easier than you have done of late. You appear to have taken the initiative, you’ve cast your net and are entitled to a bit of waiting time to see what gets caught. Relax, briefly, if you can.

When a plan doesn’t come to fruition, it can be difficult to accept we might have gone about pursuing it in the wrong way. It takes discipline, honesty and courage to accept that there was more we could have done or advice given was unheeded. You have tried to achieve a result but it does appear to have been more of a ‘dipping a toe in the water’ exercise rather than a full-blown serious attempt. You can and are entitled to go back and try again.

Don’t blow your lid off just yet!

You’re getting a chance to relax, take it and go!

This is not the time to test the water!

When we’re stuck in a traffic jam, we usually have no option but to sit and wait it out. Sometimes though, if movement, space and timing are on our side, we can seize a fleeting opportunity to turn around and head back toward the direction we came from. Recently, you’ve been caught in momentum that has been taking you a certain direction. You have a brief chance now to remove yourself if it truly isn’t where you want to be going.

There is a need now for a few people to apply a bit more imagination and proactivity than they are toward a situation important to you. You’re battling levels of apathy and unconcern from certain people and this is delaying a crucial process. All you want is for people integral to the process to see what you can see. They’re not seeing a bigger picture. Keep doing what you’re doing and you will make progress.

Surprises, if they’re anticipated, aren’t surprises. If we know what’s coming and have some degree of control over an outcome, then we tend to feel satisfaction or relief rather than mild shock at a result. Soon though, you will be pleasantly surprised with a decision from an individual or organization that has held all proverbial cards regarding a difficult or tense situation. You can practice your poker face if you like but I suspect you’ll be secretly punching the air!

Just go with the flow for now!

Don’t stop till you get enough!

Don’t start dancing before all the cards are on the table!

Have you arrived somewhere strange? Are you looking at where you are at now and wondering how or why you’ve had to adapt to changing circumstances with little or no warning? If you are thinking along such lines, then you’re right where you should be. You’ve had to deal with more than one sudden, out of the blue development but can trust it has all been intended to push you in a direction you needed pushing toward.

Anyone who has played ‘connect the dots’ knows how, once all dots have been joined, the final image isn’t always easy to see. It’s difficult to create anything circular or rounded and the overall picture is jagged and disjointed. Does it matter though? It’s a ‘connect the dots’ picture, after all. It’s not intended to be framed on a mantelpiece. Don’t concern yourself too much with how something appears in your world now. It is temporary and will soon be irrelevant.

Some people struggle to be discreet. In a reflex-like way, they state their thoughts and opinions, giving little thought to whether anyone actually asked for them. You appear to be dealing with a certain individual who’s a bit too quick to tell you where they think you’re going wrong instead of recognizing what you’re doing right. They believe their word is final. You have yet to have your say. Be discreet. Be tactful.

Don’t worry, whichever direction you’re going is good!

Look at the bigger picture now!

Don’t lose your cool or you’ll end up losing your job!

Maiya is Bow & Arrow: Shantiniketan The bronze work looks airborne as the human figure of Maiya stands at right angles to the ground on a pedestal; her hands forming the tensile bow along with a tactile arrow. Radhakrishnan’s women figures are always called Maiya. At Shantiniketan (West Bengal) history was created when President Pratibha Patil unveiled a gorgeous sculpture of sculptor K.S.Radhakrishnan entitled Maiya is Bow and Arrow on Tuesday. The event was a celebration of Rabindranath Tagore’s Birth Centenary.

On The Go Musui & Maiya

are part alter egos of the sculptor, and part fictional characters through whom Radhakrishnan has been exploring the world and sharing his perceptions with us with the assumed detachment of a third person narrative. Musui is modeled after a santhal youth he had known long years ago as a student in Santiniketan, but in Radhakrishnan's recent sculptures, he appears not as a particular person but as metaphor of mind's lightness, of its ability to assume a multiplicity of persona or identities. Maiya is his female counterpart, and one of the many 'others; he morphs into. Musui and Maiya are lookalikes divided by gender, and by mirroring each other and by metamorphosing into an endless series of 'others', like children playing roles, they mock our sense of immutable identity and make us recognize the sameness encrypted into. The liminal state by definition is characterised by openness. This series touches on that space where you exist while being transported to the space you want to be. One is constantly evolving while journeying between these two spaces. This movement is an inherent characteristic of my sculpture and is symbolic of life. What strikes you is the thinness of the body, its agile and free spirited rhythmic stance.”The thinness and elongated form helps me to deliver their flexible postures,” explains Radhakrishnan, adding, “It determines the movement from within.” Freehold, with immense lightness, Radhakrishnan’s sculptures use minimum contact with their revolving base to allow Maiya to spin in whatever gymnastic mode he allows them.

How does Radhakrishnan manage to balance his figures with such little support? How does he manage to balance their air-borne weight? The sculptor doesn’t reveal anything, except to say, “My experience over the decades has now taught me what can and cannot balance at just a glance.” The outer surface of Radhakrishnan’s sculptures is rough and he lets the texture given by the clay mould be. He confesses to loving people and the human drama, and therefore always likes to work at a life size level. No wonder at times Radhakrishnan’s sculptures stand tall at eight feet, while bronze adds a weight of anywhere between 100-130 kilos to them. “Each one takes months,” says Radhakrishnan “there are no short-cuts in this baby-making process.”

The Hair Master…A chat with Rod Anker! He is best known for his passion for hair dressing and by his own admission; it’s the thirst to learn everyday that still pushes him to try for that extra. After his recent split from well known brand Kim Robinson, world famous hair dresser Rod Anker is all set to style few more heads as he gears up with his first salon in India – RodAnker, at The Claridges Hotel in Surajkund. We caught up with the man himself, and here is what he had to say...

If you would like to contribute with articles/ pictures, Email

SV: - Why the split from Kim Robinson? RA:- Like everything in life, things evolve and move forward. Though the brand Kim Robinson was very successful here in India, it decided to close its Indian operations and concentrate on the market in the rest of Asia. This gave me a chance to get started on my dream i.e. to start my own venture. So here I am! SV: - How different is RodAnker in terms of services and packages, to that of Kim Robinson? RA:- It would remain similar in terms of quality and approach to the clients. However, our look is more European and we are working very closely with a French architect to create a unique concept for the flagship store and bring in a new refreshing feel to it. We have adjusted our pricing to become more commercial and at the same time added a price tier that will assist us in attracting the public. We still won’t be considered a service with an “Off the rack” price, but I can assure you, we are the best! SV: - Tell us more about your training days in Australia. RA:- From a very young age I wanted to be a hairdresser. With no one in the family having ever been involved in hairdressing, my mother humored me and started taking me to salons at a very young age with her. I started in the industry

Quick Fire:-

when I was 16 years old working for a commercial salon group and had to work in their academy for a month without wages to which I did. After that I was offered a four year apprenticeship. Every week the salon group had training nights, which you had to attend covering new techniques and ensuring the basics were being understood. After finishing my 4 years I continued to train, be trained, and develop myself, travelling throughout Asia and Europe in the hunt to build up my skills and knowledge. SV:- You have spent a lot of time in India. How do you find it here? RA:- (Smiles) Funnily I get asked this almost daily. To be honest with you, I am drawn to India due to its emerging market the fact that it is just opening up, and it’s an exciting country to be in. The hairdressing industry is not new for anyone, we have all had hair all of our lives, however, what is important is, that the skill and art in the industry is now being developed and harnessed to a professional level which is very exciting. I hope to, in some small way to be able to add value to the industry here in India in the long term. SV:- Are the Indian clients any different to that of international ones? RA:- Interesting, you ask this! No matter where I have worked in the world, people have always

been fascinated about everyone else and what they do and how they feel. What is interesting here, in terms of hair is the deep ingrained need for longer hair but this too is changing, with women becoming more independent. We have to remember that the Indian consumer has got access to the world now more than ever, so good or bad, over the next few years you will see the two synergize. SV:- Tell us about the kind of clientele that you have in India and abroad? RA:- My client list much to the popular belief is not only filled with political leaders and Bollywood or Hollywood, but is a wide selection of people from all walks of life and yes some are famous and some are very famous. I do not feel the need to say names or get my photo taken with them, if they feel like discussing it then I am fine, but I have a professional approach to them and feel privileged to be able to help create there looks. A very quick google search and I am sure you will find few photos. SV:- What are the products (brands) that you would be using in Rodanker? RA:- Globally there are so many products in the market, however, I have always worked with Alfa Parf for many years and simply love their brand and the way they treat hair. It is beautifully rich with natural ingredients and works incredibly well on Indian hair. In-fact I have been invited to Milan this month to see the brands new collection. SV:- Any involvement with Bollywood yet? Does it interest you? RA:- Not yet! Although, I have had the opportunity to style several B-town celebrities’ hair. SV:- What do you think are the essentials of being a good hair dresser? RA:- Patience, Passion for people, thirst for learning, desire to make people feel and look fabulous and most of all you need to live and breathe it! Life is what you put into it, the more you put in, the more you get back.

How to Look Hot Even When It’s Freezing! Who says that you have to bulk up in the winter, just because it’s freezing cold? Now, we aren’t saying that you should strut around in your shorts and tank tops but yes, you should keep the following options in mind if you want to look cute even during winter!

1. Boots One of the best things about winter is that we get to wear boots! Apart from being warm and comfortable, they also add that touch of ‘oomph’ that an outfit needs. What could be better than that?

We Recommend:

Wedge heels; so look out for the style in every color.

What’s In?

Colorful knee length socks worn with the boots- but over the skinny jeans so that they peek out.

2. Gloves Gone are the days when you had to wear boring knitted gloves to keep your fingers from falling off during winter. There are a ton of new styles available in the market today- we especially love the fingerless knitted kind which will allow you to stay warm even when you type, write, draw! There’s a new style in the market which has a tiny ‘cap’ on the knuckles which you can pull down over your fingers when your fingers get stiff. Cute or what?

We Recommend:

Bright, fleece lined leather gloves with bows, fur or rhinestones.

3. Wool Caps Just like gloves, knitted wool caps are functional and hot at the same time. They’ll keep your ears toasty warm and make you look adorable the minute you pull them on! Sequins, rhinestones, pom poms- we say get them all!

We Recommend:

The beret style. Why? Because it’s always a la mode!

4 . Asymmetric Open Sweaters/ Cardigans You’ve seen them- they’re longer in the front and shorter in the back. The reason we love them is obvious- they aren’t fussy and they’re versatile enough to be worn for any occasion- depending on the detailing and color, of course.

Sandeep Verma

But Remember!

Team longer sleeved open sweaters with tank tops so as to avoid making your arms look bulky. Turtlenecks and tunics, on the other hand, go best with short sleeved open sweaters.

Bonus Options: 1. Layers- Have a favorite (summer)

t-shirt? Team it up with a bright turtleneck or a sweater and voila! You’ve created the perfect layered look. 2. Sweater Dresses- If you don’t want to be covered up from head to toe, a sweater dress will come to your rescue. So what do you do? Throw in wedge heeled ankle boots, a wool cap and chic gloves into the mix! -Aanchal Ghai (

Rohit Sharma stars in India thrilling one-wicket win over West Indies


Cuttack, Nov 29 (IANS) Rohit Sharma starred with a match-winning half-century as India clinched a thrilling one-wicket win against the West Indies in a low scoring first ODI of the five-match series at the Barabati Stadium on Tuesday. Chasing a target of 212, India made a good start with Virender Sehwag (20) and Parthiv Patel (12) slamming 37 runs in the first five overs. But fast bowlers Kemar Roach (3/46) and Andre Russell (2/29) ripped apart the toporder as India was reduced to 59/5 by the 12th over. Rohit (72) and Ravindra Jadeja (38) then brought the innings back on track with their 83-run stand for the sixth wicket. Rohit, who is making a comeback to international cricket from a finger fracture, held the fort and smacked three fours and a huge six over long-off. Earlier, a middle-order batting collapse restricted the West Indies to 211 for nine in 50 overs. Asked to bat first, the West Indies made a faulty start losing first three wickets for 52 runs in the first 10 overs. Darren Bravo (60) and Danza Hyatt (31) added some stability to the West Indies innings with their 75-run stand, the only significant partnership of the innings. But the dismissal of Bravo triggered a collapse as the West Indies lost five wickets for just 46 runs. The young Indian pace attack impressed with their steady line and length as Yadav and Aaron picked up two wickets each while Vinay Kumar bagged one. Spinners Ashwin, Jadeja and Suresh Raina bagged a wicket each.

Bangalore, Nov 29 (IANS) Pankaj Advani ran into middling to good form as he marked his progress to the knockout phase of the IBSF World Snooker championship with two century breaks and as many victories on Tuesday. Advani, the 26-year old Bangalorean and the 2003 champion, posted breaks of 95 and 108 in the third and fourth frames while easing to a 4-0 win over Poland’s Marcin Nitschke in the afternoon session. He ended the day with a fluent 4-1 result against Finland’s Antti Silvo whose only solace was taking a tight second frame after the Indian ace had posted a break of 100. Silvo had his chances in the fifth

frame too when he crafted a break of 64, but a miss on the last red, followed by a beautiful 34 clearance saw Advani pocket the match 4-1. Equally impressive were Manan Chandra and National Champion Alok Kumar, both scoring straightforward victories to remain on course for berths in the knock-out stage. For Advani, who has won four matches with one more in hand, it was a particularly satisfying workout and he was seen at his best during the run of 95 when he had to virtually bring into play his silken touch and near-perfect judgement of the throwback off the cushions.

Hapless India go down 0-5 to Zambia

Margao, Nov 29 (IANS) India were thrashed 5-0 by a higher ranked Zambia in an international football friendly at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda on Tuesday. Musaknya Bruce Bwalya struck a hat-trick while Mulilo Jimmy Chisenga and Sitali Joseph Mushumba scored goals apiece for the World No.79 against the hapless looking Indian side, who are ranked 162nd in FIFA rankings. For India it was not the right way to gain confidence ahead of the eight-national SAFF Cup that starts on Friday. Bwalya was the star of the match

with a hat-trick within 21 minutes which sealed the victory for his side. India coach Savio Medeira handed Steven Dias the captain’s armband and decided to field Baljit Sahni and Sushil Singh upfront in the absence of Sunil Chettri and Jeje Lalpeklua, who are away on trials with Scottish giants Rangers. Zambia attacked down the flanks and held most of the ball possession as they forced an array of flag kicks that always looked dangerous. India struggled to keep the ball at their feet and hardly created a threat throughout the first half.

National Stadium

New Delhi, Nov 29 (IANS) The Sports Authority of India (SAI) is considering a Hockey India (HI) request that leasing the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium for the un-sanctioned World Series Hockey (WSH) would disturb the national camp for the Olympic qualifiers that would be held simultaneously at the same venue from Dec 11. HI secretary general Narinder Batra in a letter to SAI secretary Gopal Krishna on Tuesday said allowing Nimbus to host an un-sanctioned event at the National Stadium could upset the International Hockey Federation (FIH), which has assured the sports ministry that India won’t be de-recognised. “The sports ministry has assured the FIH that it will not support any FIH unsanctioned event and by this (allowing Nimbus to host WSH at National Stadium) it will be evident that the sports ministry is supporting FIH un-sanctioned event at the cost of training and preparation of the national team for the Olympic qualifier,” Batra wrote in the letter. Batra also wrote that the men’s camp (starting Dec 11) and the women’s camp (from Dec 27) would coincide with the WSH, which will kick-off Dec 17 at the National Stadium. The WSH is promoted by both Nimbus and the Indian Hockey Federation (IHF)

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Secretary Sanjay Jagdale said that Praveen, who was already ruled out of the first three ODIs against the West Indies with a blunt chest trauma, underwent a scan Monday evening, and reports said that he has a fractured rib. "He is expected to recover in 5-6 weeks, and has, therefore, been ruled out of the ODI series against the West Indies as well as the Test series in Australia that follows. His replacement for

the Australia tour will be named on December 5, when the selectors meet in Ahmedabad to pick the Indian team for the last two ODIs against the West Indies," Jaagdale said. Karnataka medium pacer Abhimanyu Mithun was announced as a replacement for Praveen for the first three ODIs against the West Indies. The 25-year-old Praveen has been suffering from a recurring elbow problem that kept him out of India's successful World Cup campaign at home earlier this year. He bowled well during the Test series in England but an ankle injury forced him to miss the fourth Test at the Oval.

Panaji, Nov 29 (IANS): A film documentary by late painter M.F. Husain will finally be screened at the ongoing 42nd International Film Festival of India despite right wing protests, said organizers Tuesday. Speaking to reporters, festival director Shankar Mohan said Husain's documentary "Through the eyes of a painter" would "definitely be screened" Wednesday, but a slot had not been finalized yet. "We are looking for a slot. It will definitely be screened," Mohan said. Mohan had said Saturday that the screening of the documentary, which is part of a homage by the film fraternity to the artist who died this

year, had been 'deferred' after protests from right wing organisation Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS), which had claimed that screening of the documentary would amount to contempt of court as a case regarding the screening of the film was 'sub judice'. Rajshree Gadekar, chief of the women's wing of HJS said the 1967 film shot by Husain and produced by the Films Division of India (FDI) should not be screened at the festival because the painter had insulted India. Mohan said the IFFI organizers had sought advice "in our own way and arrived at clarity on the matter".

Mumbai, Nov 29 (IANS): Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt says he didn't ask Sunny Leone in 2003 to star opposite his son Rahul, but will now offer the Indo-Canadian porn star the lead role in his film "Jism 2". "The reports are all false. Some irresponsible journalist made up the news. Yes, in 2003, we did think of her but couldn't approach her as we didn't have the proper contact back then," Mahesh Bhatt said in an interview. Born to a Punjabi family in Ontario, Sunny has appeared in various reality shows in the US. She was named among the world's top 12 porn stars by fashion magazine Maxim in 2010. Now Bhatt has a different plan for Sunny - he is set to enter the "Bigg Boss 5" house with a plum offer for Sunny. The 63-year-old producer-director sees no harm in using the "Bigg Boss" platform to announce his decision. "For us publicity is not a bad word, it is our heartbeat. Everybody uses the stage to sell their product, we too are using it to simply promote our product," said Bhatt, who in his 42 years in the industry has directed films like "Arth", "Saaransh", "Zakhm", "Aashiqui" and "Tamanna". "Jism 2" was earlier offered to Bipasha Basu and Mallika Sherawat, but things didn't work out.
