Release Rajiv Gandhi killers, appeals Karunanidhi

Chennai, Oct 6 (IANS): DMK president and former Tamil Nadu chief minister M. Karunanidhi Thursday appealed to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi to take steps to release the three convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case. "I appeal to the prime Minister and the UPA chairperson on behalf of DMK to take steps to release the three convicts lodged in the jail for over 20 years," Karunanidhi said in a statement. Karunanidhi said Murugan, Santhan and Perarivalan have been in jail for more than 20 years and that there are demands from different quarters that the centre and the state government release them. He also said there has been a demand that the Tamil Nadu cabinet pass a resolution to commute their

death sentence into life imprisonment. According to him, since the state government is not passing any resolution, the central government should take necessary steps for the prisoners' release. On Aug 11, President Pratibha Patil rejected the mercy petitions of Murugan, Santhan and Perarivalan - all linked to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) - relating to their death sentence for their involvement in Gandhi's 1991 assassination. Rajiv Gandhi, who was prime minister 1984-89, was killed by a suicide bomber called Dhanu at an election rally in Sriperumbudur near Chennai May 21, 1991. Fourteen other people also lost their lives in the blast. The three condemned prisoners were due to hang Sep 9 but the hanging was stayed by the Madras High Court for eight weeks.

Environment clearance process a farce: Goa PAC Panaji, Oct 6 (IANS): Environment clearance (EC) certificates issued to mining projects by the union ministry of environment and forests are nothing short of a farce, the Goa assembly's Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has observed. Scant regard was paid to water bodies, heritage and archaeological sites, schools and tribal areas, while granting of the farcical ECs to mining projects, said the report, which pegs Goa's illegal mining scam at approximately Rs.3,500 crore in the last financial year. "The EC certificates that are issued by the MoEF are issued without proper documentation and verification. In fact it appears that issuance of EC certificates by the MoEF has become an additional farce that is be-

The report was submitted by the PAC chairman and Leader of Opposition Manohar Parrikar to the speaker Wednesday but has yet to be tabled in the house.

New Delhi, Oct 6 (IANS): The Bharatiya Janata Party Thursday asked the government to review its policy on China after Army Chief General V.K. Singh's statement Oct 5 that around 4,000 Chinese troops were present in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. "General V.K. Singh's statement that Chinese army is present in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir is an alarming situation," BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said.

Leaders of Telangana groups, who called on the prime minister in Delhi earlier this week, have ruled out withdrawing the strike without a clear-cut assurance from the centre on carving out a separate state. Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC), which is spearheading the Telangana movement, is going ahead with road blockade in the region on Oct 9, 10 and 11.

interests. "There is no doubt that there's some connections that the Pakistani military and intelligence services have with certain individuals that we find troubling," Obama told reporters at a news conference at the White House. Obama said Pakistan is hedging its bets on the future of Afghanistan by "having interactions with some of the unsavory characters" who may regain power after the US troops pullout. "But there's no doubt that we are not going to feel comfortable with a longterm strategic relationship with Pakistan if we don't think they're mindful of our interests as well," he said. Recently, the US has been stepping up its efforts demanding Pakistan to cut ties with militant groups, including the Haqqani network blamed for attacks on the US embassy in Afghanistan.


World says iGrieve as Steve Jobs passes away

Islamabad, Oct 6 (IANS): A Pakistani panel, investigating the US raid to kill Osama bin Laden in Abbotabad May 2, Thursday suggested registration of treason charges against a doctor who helped a fake CIA vaccination program in an attempt to obtain DNA from the Al Qaeda leader's family. Shakil Afridi was arrested by the Pakistani security agency days after the US military helicopters killed the most wanted man in a compound where he was believed to have lived for years. The US had reportedly pressurized Pakistan to release Afridi but the au-

thorities rejected the US demand. "In view of the record and evidence placed before the Commission in relation to Dr Shakeel Afridi, the Commission is of the view that prima facie, a case of conspiracy against the State of Pakistan and high treason is made out against him," a commission statement said. Pakistani laws carry death penalty for high treason charges, legal experts say. The statement said the commission has taken statements and investigated the wives and daughters of Osama bin Laden and they are no more required by the commission. It also withdrew its earlier order to restrain the Pakistani authorities from handing over the Osama family members to any country. It has now allowed his widows and daughters to leave the country. The commission again interviewed the chief of the main intelligence agency Thursday for the second time in two days. It conducted an exhaustive interview of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief, Lt. Gen. Ahmad Shuja Pasha, to know his perspective leading to the Abbottabad incident. The Commission also allowed the security forces to hand over the alleged Osama compound/house at Abbottabad to the civil administration for disposal in accordance with relevant law.

Wall Street up for third day

New York, Oct 7 (IANS): US stocks ended higher for the third straight day Thursday, with Dow Jones back to 11,000-plus points after decent jobs data and stronger-than-expected retail sales, Xinhua reported. The Dow Jones industrial average rallied 183.38 points, or 1.68 percent, to 11,123.33. The Standard & Poor's 500 jumped 20.94 points, or 1.83 percent, to 1,164.97. The Nasdaq Composite Index surged 46.31 points, or 1.88 percent, to 2,506.82. The strong threeday rally officially began from the last 30 minutes of trading Tuesday when a Financial Times report showed European Union finance ministers were looking into ways to recapitalize banks after agreeing on additional measures to rescue the financial institutions in the debt-ridden region. On Thursday, the European Central Bank announced to keep its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 1.5 percent, disappointing some investors. However, stocks got a boost after the central bank said it would buy bonds issued by banks, making it easier for them to lend. Meanwhile,

data released by the Labour Department showed the number of people applying for unemployment benefits rose by 6,000 to a seasonally adjusted 401,000 last week. The number provided another evidence for the weak job market, although it was better than analysts had expected. In addition, the US private sector added only 91,000 jobs in September, reflecting the recent deceleration of economic activity, according to an employment report released Wednesday by Automatic Data Processing, Inc. The weekly figures of jobless benefits application reflect the level of layoffs and indicate the real-time condition of the US job market. By far, the blue-chip Dow rallied more than 4 percent in the last three sessions, the strongest three-day performance since late August. The broader S&P 500 jumped over 5 percent and the tech-heavy Nasdaq surged about 7 percent, both posting best threeday gains since mid-August. Among stocks in focus, shares of Apple showed strength and ended with very small losses of 0.23 percent after its

US economy needs 'jolt right now', says Obama Washington, Oct 6 (IANS): Urging Congress to pass his $447 billion jobs bill without further delay, US President Barack Obama Thursday said the US economy needs an immediate "jolt". "Our economy really needs a jolt right now," Obama told a White House news conference, adding the current crisis in Europe could have "a very real effect" on the US economy at a time when it's already fragile, reported Xinhua. Obama challenges those senators who are thinking about voting against the bill to explain to the public. "Any senator out there who's thinking about voting against this jobs bill when it comes up for a vote needs to explain exactly why they would oppose something we know would improve our economic situa-

tion at such an urgent time," Obama said. Aiming to tackle near double digit unemployment and to spur the sluggish economy, Obama laid out on Sep 8 the American Jobs Act to provide tax cuts and credit, extend unemployment benefits and increase investment in infrastructure. The Senate is set to take up Obama's job bill next week after adding to the bill a tax increase on million-dollar earners. Obama said he would support the new approach by Senate Democrats for paying for his jobs bill with a tax on millionaires rather than his plan to raise taxes on couples making more than $250,000. But the tax on the rich approach is strongly opposed by Republicans, who arguing that Obama was declaring war on the job creators.

Hope prices come down, Pranab wishes on Bijaya Dasami Birbhum (West Bengal), Oct 6 (IANS): Wishing the people a happy 'Bijaya Dasami', union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee Thursday hoped that prices of essentials would come down and the growth rate go up. "I wish everybody a happy Bijaya Dasami. I hope that everybody stays happy and fit," Mukherjee told reporters on the occasion of Bijaya Dasami at his ancestral home in Mirati, near Kirnahar in West Bengal's Birbhum district. "At the national level, as the finance minister of the country, I want the price of essential commodities to come down, a high growth rate and less fiscal deficit," said Mukherjee. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has conducted as many as 12 policy rate hikes in the past 20 months to tame the near double-digit inflation. Fiscal deficit also increased substantially in this fiscal and led to creation of inflationary pressures on the economic system. Some economists feel that the RBI's move to increase rate hikes would hamper growth of the economy.

Washington, Oct 6 (IANS) Apple's visionary co-founder Steve Jobs put his own stamp on everything from the personal computer to the music industry in myriad ways. For Jobs, how a product looked, felt and responded trumped raw technical specifications. While PC makers chased after faster processor speeds, Jobs pursued clever, minimalist design, noted Fortune magazine listing the ways he changed the world. Apple's titanium-turned-aluminium notebooks have became bestsellers. The most recent MacBook Air models have been held up as examples of the ideal intersection of design, price and performance. Launched in 2003, iTunes has become the largest online music retailer in the world, with over 200

anywhere. Apple operating systems were always intended to be simpler than the competition -- MS-DOS, Windows or Linux -- and that approach is readily apparent, whether it's Mac OS System 7 or Mac OSX, software largely derived from Jobs' work at NeXT. Ultimately, Jobs' biggest contribution isn't just a smartphone, a tablet or an operating system, but Apple itself, a 12,000-strong organization that was once on the brink of irrelevance, Fortune said. Since his return to the company in 1997, Jobs rebuilt it into the most valuable technology company in the world, surpassing other heavyweights like Microsoft or HP. It may indeed be the greatest turnaround in business history, it said.

Janpath Market

A trip to Delhi’s Flea Markets Delhi! Often referred as Dilli, Dilli Meri Jaan, Dilwalon Ki Dilli, Saadi Dilli and what not, is a place that is never short on offerings to the locals and to the tourists. Be it an appetite of a shopaholic or taking care of the taste buds of a food lover, it has all that you need. Though we all might enjoy our shopping stint at the luxury malls, the pulsating and striking atmosphere of Delhi flea markets can add fun to your outings. And to take care of your wish list, here are a few that we think one must go…

Paharganj We would not blink an eye, if you were to call the Paharganj market chaotic, crumbling or even messy for that matter, as it combines all these elements. However, in those tiny, crowded lanes lies the beauty of the hidden shopping mantras. From textiles to handicrafts, books to handmade products you will find it all and that too at a very low price! And one must not forget to mention that you can always bargain to make sure your wallet doesn't lose too much weight.

Key Attraction Located in the heart of the capital city, this market has something for everyone. Small shops that sell goods like, silver ornaments, curios, cotton clothes, exotic ensembles and Indian artifacts and carpets will give you enough time to search for your likings and make sure you carry bags full of goods when you drive back home.

Years ago, adverts appeared in comic books for ‘X-Ray Specs’. With these, you were able to ‘see’ through clothing and flesh. A great gimmick, but we never see adverts for rosetinted spectacles despite demand for them and the fact they’re so widely used. How realistic are you being where your opinion of someone is concerned? It could be time to accept they may not be quite so deserving of the pedestal you’ve put them on.

Satellite navigations systems have much to answer for. There are many tales of cars ending up in the middle of nowhere surrounded by cows when drivers thought a major city was the intended destination. Today’s aspect between your ruler and Neptune suggests a need to assess how ‘on track’ you are with a plan. Is what you’re doing on a day-to-day basis working or likely to get you to where you need to be? Look beyond the dream at what’s realistically attainable.

Once upon a time, to reach the masses, you’d have to convince a newspaper or magazine editor that you had a story worthy of publishing. Nowadays, websites, apps and other technologies facilitate this. With the push of a button, we can communicate instantly with large groups of people. The sky speaks of a need to convey yourself on a grander scale than you might be used to. Use whatever resources are available to make a point to those willing to listen.

Who you think is a super hero is actually just a side kick!

Live in the present!

It’s your time to shine and “Share” !




‘It ain’t what they call you, it’s what you answer to that matters’. WC Fields’ comment holds some relevance to you now. Focus exists on how you believe you’re perceived by others. A question that holds more relevance is, how do you want to be seen by others? Your ruling planet’s link to Neptune now heralds a time of heartwarming confirmation, if it was actually needed, of how highly regarded you are.

In any good film or story, end of second acts always culminate with dramatic turning points. The hero has struggled, thinks their struggle is over and believes they can relax. A sudden development confirms they underestimated their situation and are required to muster all strength and courage to win the day. Your struggle has reached a turning point. Prepare now to experience victory.

‘If you don’t ask, you don’t get’. This wellknown phrase holds much truth yet we’re aware of how we sometimes obtain what we desire without necessarily asking for it. Sometimes, what we want or need is made available without us making any formal requests for it. Perhaps though, through unconscious effort made on our behalf, we made what we desired appear. Don’t question now how or why something has suddenly appeared, just welcome it.

You already know the answers!

You are the champion, my friend!

Why are you looking at a gift horse in the mouth?

A home or family matter remains very much in the spotlight now, but today’s Venus/Neptune conjunction brings a new slant to things. Venus brings an increase in comfort and relief to a domestic drama but Neptune’s influence could cause something important to be overlooked. As lovely as it is to be punching the air with joy and relief be certain that you haven’t inadvertently ignored a family-related factor.

In his poem about ‘Annabel Lee’, Edgar Allen Poe wrote ‘we loved with a love that was more than love’. Only someone who was truly smitten could have written such words. Infatuation or desire with someone or something on your part could be encouraging you to make some grand, inspired or overly romantic statements now. The really lovely part to all of this is you truly mean them.

Being summoned to the boss’s office always causes momentary silence and anxiousness from co-workers but you needn’t be concerned about career-related news you receive now. You’re receiving the strongest ray of hope possible through today’s Venus/ Neptune conjunction and a positive development where your earnings and career are related is assured!

Remember, blood is thicker than water and it’s always messier to clean up as well!

So jump in with both feet!

Relax, it’s pay day!

Capricorn Dec. 22 - Jan. 19

Aquarius Jan. 20 - Feb. 18


From a Sun Sign perspective, Libra rules your career and how you’re seen by others. Aquarius rules your earnings and material possessions. If the current conjunction between Venus and Neptune in these signs doesn’t bring you some form of good news and optimism where your material status is concerned, then I don’t know what will. Your days of living hand-to-mouth are over, my Capricornian friend.

If there’s someone at a distance you’re grown even more distant from lately, today’s auspicious aspect involving Neptune in your sign could bring you closer together. Alternatively, if there’s something you’ve wanted to learn or study, then an opportunity to do either or both could present itself. Ancient astrologers deemed the area of your chart being touched by Neptune’s influence now to rule travel, people from afar and learning. Take your pick and see what transpires.

Money-related communication is prominent now and if you’ve been sticking your head in the sand or constantly promising someone that payment’s on its way, then resolution could finally be reached. It’s also important someone with whom mutual respect exists understands you haven’t been deliberately avoiding them. You’ve had much on your plate lately and they’ll probably be more understanding than you suspect they will.

It’s going to happen… wait for it!

The stars are on your side!

Just don’t bite off more than you can chew!

Top 5 Beer Capitals prague dublin

The Czech Republic is the world’s number one beer drinking nation, so no prizes for guessing why Prague is on this list. The Czechs have been brewing beer for over 1000 years and claim that they are the biggest beer-guzzling nation in the world with a whopping per capita number of 157 litres! The Czechs like to drink their beer on the tap. They say it tastes much better than beer that has been bottled or canned. So go on a beer crawl and get sloshed, coz in Prague drinking beer is cheaper than drinking water. It can’t get any better than that, can it ?

The Irish sure know their beer, or more precisely Guinness. Guinness is a dark stout made from roasted malt, and is almost a second name for Dublin. Spend some time at Dublin’s pubs, and you are bound to have a great time in the friendly backslapping atmosphere. A pit stop at St James’ Gate, the largest brewer of stout in the world, is a must for any beer loving person. Oh, and just by the way the best view of Dublin is from the seventh floor of the 250 year old brewery – Guinness Storehouse !

sydney In Sydney Fosters may not be the most popular beer – the locally brewed Toohey is- but beer is definitely the drink that is top of the pops or should we say ‘hops’ in Australia. Sydney is a beer drinking city with loads of bars and pubs at CBD where everyone heads to after a day’s work to hang out and just chill out with a cold, cold beer. Statistics have it that a single Australian consumes 110 litres of beer annually. That’s a hell of lot of beer, wouldn’t you say ?

To choose the best of anything is difficult, but to narrow down on the five best beer cities is really, really tough! So how do we choose? Do we go by which city has the most number of breweries or bars, or do we go by how many types of beer are served? Does it matter? Just go and bend you elbow at a bar at any one of the cities listed below and down mugs of the great mellow yellow liquid – here’s to beer. Cheers! Prost! Salud!



The tiny town of Bamberg in Bavaria is big on beer. There are all of nine breweries here that produce 50 different beers, of which the specialty is Rauch-bier, a smoked beer. Lots of good quality cheap beer is available in Bamberg and the bars and beer gardens are busy through the year serving beer to the thirsty. So come to Bamberg as a regular beer drinker and leave as a connoisseur - that’s what beer drinking in Bamberg does to you!

Given Montreal’s oh- so- French air, one would think that wine is the favoured drink here. But you’re wrong. Beer is the number one drink of Montreal. With more micro breweries and brewpubs than we can count, Montreal throws up a variety of beers to choose from and they are based on their colour: blonde, rousse (red), ambrée (amber), and noir (dark) – so when at a bar be sure to order your colour preference instead of ale or lager!

Denim Shorts (Daisy Dukes) If you have the legs for it, denim shorts should feature highest on your shopping list this season! While the low-waisted variety looks good with both fitted and loose tops, it is imperative that high -waisted denim shorts are worn only with tops that have a looser fit or cropped t-shirts. The Multi-Tasker- The great bit about daisy dukes is that they never look out of place, no matter what the occasion may be. For example- for a day out with the family, combine denim shorts with a t-shirt or white shirt but if you’re meeting up with some girlfriends after, swap the t-shirt with a colorful halter and you’re good to go! They can also be worn with colorful leggings in the winter. Colors We Love- Denim shorts look great in every color of the rainbow so go ahead and take your pick!

Must -have Denims this Season

Fashion trends seem to be getting more and more adventurous with every passing season. Designers are thinking out of the box and instead of toeing the safety line, they’re literally jumping out of the safety zone with flourish. Therefore, it’s little wonder that this season’s denim must-haves are as fabulous as they are! Aanchal Ghai,

Jeggings The genius who came up with this concept obviously knew what women wanted! As the name suggests, jeggings combine leggings with jeans and have a (thank God!) slimming effect. But Remember! You have to choose a style that complements your body type. For example- if you’re on the shorter side, go for the ‘petite’ and not the ‘regular’ variety because otherwise, the material will bunch up around your ankles. Colors We Love- Grey and black because they’re versatile and even more slimming!

Distressed or Ripped Denims While it cannot be ignored that these denims are not the most versatile of the lot, it has to be said that they’ve been in vogue for a long time which is why we’ve come to the conclusion that they’re here to stay! What to Avoid- Stay away from distressed jeans or shorts that have way too many rips in them. You don’t want to end up looking like something the cat dragged in! But Remember! The placement of the rips plays a large part in determining whether you end up looking slimmer or bulkier than you are. Horizontal rips, for example, will add inches to your hips whereas you’ll look more slender if the rips are vertical.

Colored Skinny Jeans Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham have been sporting bright, shaded jeans for a while now but outside tinsel town, they’ve only recently come into vogue! They’re eyecatching because they’re different and break the monotony created by blue denims over the years. The Tricky Part- It is essential that these denims are combined with plain t-shirts because it’s difficult to select a pattern that doesn’t clash with a bold color. Colors We Love- Purple, red and aqua because they work well with every body type.

Water can make you richer Water brings prosperity when energized correctly in the right manner and helps getting a continuous flow of wealth luck into your house or workplace. Every person is born with the Wealth luck and has the ability to become rich, and with feng shui we can speed up the ripening of your wealth luck .

As 70 per cent of the human body weight is made up of water, placing these features correctly in your surrounding will have a significant effect on your personal Ch’i energy.

Ideal Placement:


A water fountain in your home can be an extremely valuable asset. Fresh clean water is symbolic of good health, positive energies, good cash flow and a lack of stagnation in your career.


Place a fountain or cascade of water outside your front door, on the right hand side of the door (as you enter). This allows good fortune and abundance to flow into your front door. Also you can place an aquarium or fountain in the prosperity or the wealth area of your home .


Make sure that all drains are free flowing to stimulate flow of finances. Do not let water stagnate in drains.

avoid these Placements:

The water Ch’i energy of the north is associated with independence, so exposure to this will stop you from relying heavily on other people’s opinions. It also encourages money to flow towards you. Round or rectangular shape aquariums are better than square ones, keeping nine goldfish with one black and eight golden. Aquarium bubbling with water attracts the prosperity Ch’i into your house. If placed in the office, place a light shining into the aquarium so that flickering shadows are reflected on the ceiling. This helps in business turnover – increasing your sales and profits . Even the placement of a photo or painting of a stream, river or lake in the wealth area of the house can help increase prosperity. If you energize it correctly and in proper alignments with the other energies so that there is an auspicious balance, water energy will make you rich and prosperous beyond your expectations.


Make sure that there is no water placed in the south-west of your home or its surrounding, as it is the most inauspicious for relationships.


Do not have water symbolism inside the bedroom. It attracts the Ch’i of loss and water in the bedroom causes relationship problems. Hence pictures, posters of landscapes with waterfall or painting of lake and rivers can be used elsewhere in the house.

Make sure that there is no water feature on the right-hand side of the main front door (looking out from inside).

Avoid placing any kind of water feature under the staircase, as it effects children’s wealth luck.

Do not sit with any water feature behind you, always make sure to have a solid wall behind you for support.

Chennai, Oct 6 (IANS) Having played two of their four Group A fixtures here at Chepauk, as against none by their semi-final rivals Somerset, coach Shaun Pollock believes that his team Mumbai Indians have more than a whiff of chance to win the Champions League T20 game to be played Saturday. Of more significance is that Mumbai are aware what to expect from the Chepauk pitch that has attracted more than its share of attention owing to the nature of the surface that has been on the slower and lower side, said Pollock. "I think we have to just adjust on the day. I mean we don't quite know how the pitch is going to

play until we see how the first five or six deliveries behave," said Pollock at a media conference here on Thursday. Despite former Aussie star Andrew Symonds' poor form with the bat, Pollock asserted that the all-rounder still has a lot to contribute by way of his vast experience and that he has specific role to play within the team's gameplan while responding to a query whether he would be promoted in the batting order. Pollock had a word of praise for skipper Harbhajan Singh saying the off-spinner had shouldered the responsibility with aplomb in the absence of injured Sachin Tendulkar.

London, Oct 6 (IANS) Jurors in a London Crown Court were told that cricket betting syndicates were controlled and orchestrated by shadowy figures based in Dubai, Mumbai, London and Karachi and some $50 billion was gambled away in the Asian subcontinent alone on matches played around the world and beamed live on satellite television. Aftab Jafferjee, a Queen's Counsel appearing on behalf of the Crown Prosecution Service, said that even if that figure was reduced by a tenth it "not unsurprisingly makes 'spot' fixing and match fixing irresistible to some",

The agent of accused Pakistani cricketers Mazhar Majeed had told an undercover reporter that fixing the outcome of a Test match had been achieved in the past and could be arranged for a fee of 1 million pounds. On the first full day of the trial of former Pakistan captain Salman Butt and fast bowler Mohammad Asif in London's Southwark Crown Court, Jafferjee said the betting industry developed in the 1990s and bets are taken out seconds before the event with "breathtaking" amounts involved in illegal betting.

"Things look pretty promising right now. And yes, I think it (overtaking Renault) is possible," the official Formula One website quoted Sutil as saying. Force India's chances of ending at fifth place also look good because of Renault's poor run in the last five races where the British team has managed just five points. Renault has 70 points courtesy drivers Vitaly Petrov and Bruno Senna. Sutil attributes the recent success of the team to the improved reliability of the VJM04 car.
