Grading system for Stds X, XII HERALD REPORTER PANJIM, MAY 27

Chairman of the Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Mervyn D’Souza on Thursday disclosed the Government had given its approval for implementation of the grading system at the Board exams from the academic year 201011.

Speaking during the declaration of SSC results, D’Souza mentioned the grading system aimed at reducing stress in students is the same as applicable for Stds VIII, IX and XI, but for the Board exam it has been decided to have a component for 20% internal assessment marks. He said most of the students focus on studying only for the

X and XII Board exam and as a result they show little or no interest in the exams during the whole academic year. The internal assessment component in the grading system will change all that, he mentioned. “ The students will have to buck up and show interest at the first term and (Continued on page 11)

MICE tourism boosts plans for mega convention centre HERALD REPORTER PANJIM, MAY 27

Plans to set up a mega international convention centre, not very far from the capital city, have been revived. It may be recalled that a Rs 400-crore convention centre was earlier proposed in Dona Paula for which DLF, a real estate giant, had bagged the contract in 2007. The firm was to pay the Goa Government Rs 161 crore. The project was to come up on 25 acres of land close to the Goa University campus on build, operate and transfer (BOT) basis. However, in view of the legal tangle with teachers of Goa University who had approached the High Court, the project could not take shape. The Government has now revived a similar proposal for an international convention centre as there is a strong demand from the tourism industry.

It is not clear where the project is likely to come up. Land around Panjim is being identified. It could be in or around Bambolim. The modalities are being discussed, according to sources. What is called MICE tourism — meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions -- has shown huge potential in the State. Sources said a convention centre of international status, would attract tourists in larger numbers. Goa is already known as a MICE destination but has no proper infrastructure to take it big. In this backdrop, the Govern-

ment seems to be pursuing the project and today, a presentation was made, among other projects, to Gajendra Haldea, principal advisor (infrastructure) in the Planning Commission, at the Secretariat, Porvorim. It is not clear where the project is likely to come up. But sources said that land around Panjim is being identified. It could be in or around Bambolim, a source said. The modalities for setting up the centre are being discussed. OTHER PROJECTS: Presentations were made about other projects the Government is pursuing on PPP basis. These include UguemCapxem Bypass road in the mining belt of Goa, Sports City in Dhargalim, some tourism projects, etc. As per a feasibility report prepared by Goa State Infrastruc(Continued on page 11)

Germany names 50 Indians with black money PTI NEW DELHI, MAY 27

In a breakthrough in the Government’s efforts to track down black money held by Indians in foreign banks, Germany has given Indian authorities a list of some 50 individuals who have now been sent notices for tax evasion. Highly placed sources in the Finance Ministry said that the Government in Germany had sent a list some two months ago and notices were sent after scrutinising the same. “Based on whatever information we received from the German authorities, we have issued notices to the tax evaders related to Indian context in February and March,” a senior official of the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) said. However, the exact number of persons contained in the list and the illegal money in the accounts of German banks could not be ascertained immediately. The sources also indicated that information about these persons is being collected and other suitable action could follow. The German authorities, the official said, had sent the list of individuals who had stashed money in the LGT Bank in Liechtenstein and in other tax havens. “We have already taxed the

amount. Retrieving the tax money will take time,” he added. The government had also initiated talks with the Swiss authorities for seeking information about the illegal funds parked in their banks. Last year, Swiss authorities had shared details of over 4,000 account holders with the US, raising similar calls in India. “We have been able to complete the negotiations (on tax treaties) with Switzerland... we have accepted the OECD clause 26 (article 26) earlier in our double taxation avoidance agreements”, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee had said in Parliament.

India gives Canada one week to solve visa row PTI BANGALORE/NEW DELHI, MAY 27

Taking a tough line, India today termed as “unacceptable” the denunciation of its security forces and intelligence establishment by Canada and gave it a one-week deadline to “address the situation appropriately”. While Canada remained silent amid an outrage here, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna said the Canadian High Commissioner had been “called” twice by his ministr y to register protest over the issue. “We have conveyed to the Canadian government that the letter issued by the Canadian High Commission to serving or retired officials of our security forces and agencies who had applied for Canadian visa are entirely unacceptable,” he told reporters in Bangalore. “We expect the Canadian authorities to address the situation appropriately,” the minister said. Asked what next step India contemplated, he said, “Let us wait for the Canadian authorities to address it”. Noting that India had made

IMD predicts drop in mercury HERALD REPORTER PANJIM, MAY 27

Though the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted rains in next 24 hours, the mercury continued to soar in the State. The State witnessed 0.6mm of rainfall early this morning, but it failed to give respite from the heat. According to IMD, the maximum temperature for the day was recorded 35.7 degree Celsius. As per the IMD website, the State will have a partly cloudy weather with moderate rainfall and thunderstorms in the next 24 hours. “The maximum temperature will continue to remain above 35 degree Celsius in coming two days, while the minimum temperature will be almost 28 (Continued on page 11)

its “position crystal clear to Canadian authorities”, Krishna appealed to the media “not try to blow it (the issue) out of proportion.” Underlining that institutions in India function under the Constitution, he said, “we are proud of our security forces and agencies and the services they render to the nation”. The Canadian High Commission, over the last few years, has denied visas to a number of senior serving and retired officials of the armed forces and intelligence establishment, claiming that their organisations or they themselves have served in sensitive areas like Jammu and Kashmir and engaged in violence and human rights violations. The Home Ministry is pushing the External Affairs Ministry to

act tough with Canada over the issue even as political parties reacted with outrage. Home Secretary G K Pillai has written a strongly-worded letter to Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao, insisting that the MEA should act tough and seek apology from the High Commission and withdrawal of the officials who made the adverse comments against the security forces, sources said. The Home Ministry wants the apology and the other action from the High Commission within a week, warning that there will otherwise be retaliation and the Canadian officials going to Afghanistan via India would be denied permission. “We have written to the MEA, informing them about the whole development,” Pillai told PTI.

Govt agencies mull coordinated action to tackle polluted Colva creek HERALD REPORTER MARGAO, MAY 27

Government agencies mulled coordination action to tackle the pollution and environmental hazard posed by discharge of sewage waters in Colva creek, even as the Colva Panchayat body has resolved to serve show cause notices on all establishments releasing sewage and waste water in the drains and the creek. At a meeting held to review and take stock of the directions issued by the Goa Pollution Control Board, participants called for initiating both short and long term measures to arrest the situation from going worse. If the Colva Panchayat has resolved to issue show cause notices to all hotels, restaurants and eateries to stop discharge of sewage waste in the creek and drains, the Water Resources Department has agreed to take up the work of desilting of the contaminated creek after the monsoons. As a long term solution, Chairman of the Goa Sewerage Corporation Ganashyam Shi-

rodkar has assured to take up the work of preparing estimates for a sewerage scheme for Colva, but said the Tourism Department should seek funds from the Union Tourism Minister to execute work on the sewerage line on a war footing. Tourism Minister, Mickky Pacheco’s Officer on Special Duty, Lyndon Monteiro underlined the need for a coordinated approach to the prevailing situation and said the Tourism Minister along with other agencies will work together to resolve the burning problem. Briefing newsmen after the meeting, Monteiro said the Colva Panchayat would issue show cause notices to all the establishments to forthwith stop discharge of sewage to the drains leading to the creek. “This action will start immediately. All pipes connected to the drains and Creek will be disconnected. Once this is achieved, the work of desilting the creek by the Water Resources Department will start around October after the monsoons”, he added. A Water Resources official said the de-

partment has no problem in taking up the desilting work, but asked the Colva Panchayat to identify sites for dumping of the solid waste collected from the creek. Monteiro said one of the long term solution mooted at the meeting was to implement a sewerage scheme in Colva village. “The Sewerage corporation has extended its cooperation as evident by the presence of the Chairman Shirodkar”, he said. Shirodkar later told newsmen that the Tourism Department should approach the Union Tourism Minister for grants to lay a sewerage line along the coastal belt. “Colva village may require around Rs 300-400 crore. The State government cannot make available these funds”, he said. Colva ZP member Nelly Rodrigues said all establishments should have their own soakpits to drain sewage and waste water, adding that the Colva Panchayat would send a resolution to the Tourism Department seeking Central grant to the tune of Rs 400 crore as a long term measure to tackle the environmental hazard.

When the car reached by pass road near Kadamba bus stand Bicholim, a truck suddenly came in the opposite direction, due to which car driver Ashok lost the control over the vehicle.

Accordingly, Canacona Mamlatdar Chandrakant Shetkar along with Canacona police led by PI Raju Raut Dessai visited Rajani Paiek Temple on Wednesday evening in an attempt to break the truce between the two warring community heads. It took several hours to arrive at a decision, before agreeing to keep off the hands of both the group members and allow only a pujari to perform the rituals and install ‘Kalash’. According to sources, proposal allowing two men from

each group was unacceptable to group of Rajani Paiek Temple, while permitting only the other group, who had reconstructed the temple, was unacceptable to original committee members. This led to several arguments closely watched by police, before Canacona PI Dessai broke the stalemate suggesting that both community members will keep their hands off the ‘Kalash’ and allow the pujari to perform the rites and place it over temple dome. At one time, some officials also offered to help Pujari in case he finds it difficult to place Kalash over temple dome. During the discussion, Shree Lakneshwar Devasthan commit-

tee brought papers as old as 120 years, proving its right over temple rituals and other rights, including nine temples. The Burm temple elders argued “Despite being mahajans of Laksherwar Temple, we are not permitted in other temples or main temple affairs, then why we should allow them to interfere in our temple affairs.” C a n a c o n a P I D e s s a i re quested the warring factions to see the reasons and go as per the rights given in papers from the Portuguese regime. He also asked Shree Lakhneshwar Devasthan committee to give all the right eligible to the Velip community as mahajans of that devasthan.

Man gets 4 years RI for brutal assault HERALD REPORTER PANJIM, MAY 27

The city fast track court on Thursday sentenced a 35-yearold man to rigorous imprisonment for four years by holding him guilty of brutally assaulting a girl in 2006 who had refused to marry him. The Court had also sentenced accused with fine Rs 1 lakh. The Fast Track Court Judge Vijaya Pol has sentenced Vasco resident Andre Fernandes on the charge of assaulting Sweta Zantye with a chopper. “Taking into consideration the fact that accused had the audacity to assault the victim

girl with coita in broad day light in a busy market place, no misplaced sympathies should be shown to the accused who challenged the law openly…,” the Court observed. The accused will have to undergo further rigorous imprisonment for one year if he fails to pay the fine amount. As per the case of the prosecution the accused attacked victim girl while she was at work. She worked as an accountant at a shop in the Mapusa market. He retaliated by assaulting her as he could not tolerate her “No.” Besides the victim, pros-

ecution said, her family was also opposed to the marriage proposal of the accused. The defence pleaded leniency saying the accused was the only breadwinner in the family and his wife recently delivered a baby girl, however Public Prosecutor Melina Pinto argued that the accused had brutally attacked the girl and hence should not be liable for leniency. The Court also took into account the statement of the victim girl that she has been unable to work because of the severe impact on her body due to the attack.

Cabinet to have final say on HSRPs HERALD REPORTER PANJIM, MAY 27

The decision on High Security Registration Plates (HSRPs) will be taken by the Goa Cabinet even as Transport Minister Ramkrishna Dhawalikar on Thursday said that he has not received any sort of report from Advocate General Subodh Kantak over the HSRP contract. “As a transport minister, the file with AG’s verdict has to come to me, which will be studied and accordingly the decision will be taken,” Dhawalikar said. “But till today I have not received any file from AG’s office,” he added. After the Srivastav committee presented its final report on the controversial HSRP at the floor of the House in March with several irregularities in awarding the tender to the Shimnit Utsch, the State government had forwarded the file to AG for legal opinion. Officials have confirmed that AG has already given his opinion to the State government and has also pointed out irregularities in the contract. Meanwhile, as the HSRP contract signed by the government with Shimnit Utsch still stands, public are being offered with

the same number plates for their new vehicles till further decision comes on the matter. Sources in the government however, said that following the legal opinion given by the AG, the government is going to place the matter before the Cabinet. “The Cabinet should decide as it has become a very controversial issue”, said an officer. The Cabinet will have to take the decision whether to scrap the contract with Shimnit Ustch Pvt Ltd or not and if not whether

the rates would have to be reviewed among other issues. It may be recalled that HSRP has been very controversial from the time Dhavlikar decided to implement the decision in Goa around ten months ago. The tendering process and allotment of the contract to M/s Shimnith Ustch was decided by his predecessor Pandurang Madkaikar. It was only when the court gave a ruling in favour of the company that the government decided to implement the

scheme in Goa. However, sources said that though the Supreme Court had given a decision for implementation of HSRP across the country, there was no need for Goa to rush with the decision. Unlike other states, Goa, as per a decision taken by Dhavlikar, rushed with the implementation of the decision which ultimately led to an agitation over the “high rates” and lack of proper infrastructure set up for installing the number plates.

Woman commits suicide

Striking drivers and cleaners of IOC transporter outside IOC depot. HERALD REPORTER VASCO, MAY 27

About 150 tanker drivers with Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) depot at Vasco engaged to transport fuel stopped plying their vehicles since Wednesday and the sudden strike is likely to create short supply of fuel at various installations in the State. However, IOC officials have termed drivers and cleaners strike as illegal, as the striking transporters, who are contracted with the oil company, have not served any notice to the company. The striking drivers and cleaners have complained of harassment by the company official on a minor issue. They have presented 15 demands, mostly demanding improvement in working conditions. The strike will not have any impact on IOC petrol pumps, as distributors have its own tankers for fuel transportation.

The most affected will be the State and central installations like Kadamba, PWD, mining companies and railways, who are the major consumers of IOC. Since striking drivers plying nearly 150 trips a day to supply fuel to various installations stopped supply since Wednesday, shortfall was felt in installations like PWD, Kadamba and mining on Thursday. It is given to understand that railways will also be affected if the strike is not called off by Friday, claimed the striking workers. Speaking to media, most of the drivers and cleaners said they have informed the transporters and company official about their grievances, but no effort has been made to resolve the issue due to which they resorted to flesh strike. Speaking to Herald, a top IOC official, who wished not to be quoted, informed that nei-

ther transporters nor drivers served any strike notice or intimated them about the strike which is illegal. “Since we have contract with the transporters, it is their duty to inform us about drivers and cleaners grievances. Why company officials will deal with the drivers and cleaners when they have contract with the transporters,” added the official. “The grievances of the striking drivers and cleaners may be genuine, but this is not the way to put forward the demands and bring the work to a standstill, transporters are free for talks,” claimed the source. “The strike is illegal and law will take its own course,” warned the official. With the strike likely to have impact on supply of essential commodities, the company has written to the Civil Supply Director and Deputy Collector informing them about the illegal strike.

A 21-year-old woman from Yallapur-Karwar committed suicide by hanging herself to the roof of her rented house at Kondalwado-Pernem on Wednesday.

Left unattended, 50,000 rice bags sent back to Ratnagiri HERALD REPORTER VASCO, MAY 27

About 50,000 rice bags of Food Corporation of India (FCI), left unattended in 42 wagons at the Baina railway yard since the last three days, have been reverted to Ratnagiri on Thursday, as the striking FCI workers failed to call off their strike. About 100 FCI workers engaged in loading and unloading at FCI godown, Baina railway yard and Verna yard for the last three decades are irked with FCI’s recent move to engage new contractor from Mumbai for loading and unloading purpose. The new tender has been also issued for transportation contract. “For the last three decades, we have been engaged in loading and unloading works for FCI. The new contractor, who will employ new workers, will not be acceptable,” claimed the striking workers, whose strike entered third day on Thursday. However, to express solidarity with the striking workers, the transporters have also kept their trucks off the roads. Sources in FCI informed that the FCI godown at Headland Sada, which has a capacity to store nearly 15,000 tonnes of food grains, has enough stock. “Hence, the reverted rice con-

Bicholim dy collector told to issue fresh order on mining transport HERALD REPORTER PANJIM, MAY 27

The Bombay High Court at Goa on Thursday issued a direction to deputy collector, Bicholim to pass a fresh order within three weeks time after hearing all the parties as his earlier order of May 25, 2010 has been challenged by a mine owner. The Collector in his order on May 25 had directed that no truck carrying mining ore should ply on roads in Surla village between 7 pm and 6am and with one hour break between 7 am and 8 am and 1 pm to 2 pm allow students to go to school in pollution free environment as continuous plying of trucks carrying ore caused heavy dust and noise pollution. The order was challenged by one Ashok Naik, a mine owner which came up for hearing before Vacation Bench of Justice N A Britto. The court also heard intervention application filed by a NGO Manav Heet Saunstha, Surla that opposed the peti-

tion. The NGO requested the Court that order of the deputy Collector should not be interfered with as the mining trucks over-load, over-speed and operate day and night causing pollution. The Advocate General (AG) Subodh Kantak said the deputy collector should have heard mining operators operating in the area before passing the order. He further told the court that May 25 order is being withdrawn by the government and the Collector will pass a fresh order after hearing the intervener and the mining operators. The court recorded AGs statement and directed that in the meantime the ore should not be transported on Surla roads between 9 pm and 8 am and 1 pm to 2 pm in the afternoon until collector issues a fresh order. The court has also directed the Bicholim Police to strictly enforce compliance of high court directions.

GSIC directs Sodiem panchayat to keep records up-to-date HERALD CORRESPONDENT PORVORIM, MAY 27

The Goa State Information Commission, Panjim, has directed the Sodiem Panchayat to maintain all the records of the panchayat duly catalogued and indexed and pay compensation of Rs 1,000 to the complainant for not providing him the information sought within stipulated time of 30 days. Complainant Domnic D’Souza had made applications to the Sodiem panchayat secretary on April 20, 2009, June 2, 2009, June 9, 2009 and June 16, 2009 seeking information on construction/development done by the panchayat in the road widening area and the construction of panchayat ghor. The complainant also sought information on illegal construction/extension of ground plus first floor at a house in Bancar Vaddo by former Sodiem sarpanch and ZP member. Further, D’Souza sought information on illegal construction/extension of the house carried out by one person in the road widening area and two garbage collection vans lying idle in the property of Deputy Sarpanch Leao Dias. Since D’Souza did not receive the information from panchayat within 30 days, he filed four separate complaints with the Goa State Information Commission praying disciplinary action be taken against the panchayat secretary under Section 20 of RTI Act. The panchayat contended that there was delay in furnishing the information to D’Souza, as panchayat had to make preparations for annual audit of the panchayat and produced memorandum copy of the audit of panchayat accounts conducted in 2009-10. However, the memorandum of Block Development Officer Mapusa indicated that it was issued on June 15, 2009 stating the dates of audit to be carried out in the respective village panchayats and the date of audit fixed for Sodiem panchayat was August 19, 2009 to August 20, 2009. On verifying the facts of the case, the Goa State Information Commission observed that the date of information of audit, June 15, 2009, was close to the dates of the information sought by the complainant which indicates that there was no intentional delay on the part of the panchayat to provide the

information to D’Souza. However, since the information sought for has to be provided from the records, it appears that Sodiem Panchayat has not complied with the mandatory provision of Section 4(1) of the RTI Act and kept all the records of the panchayat duly catalogued and indexed so as to facilitate public information officer to provide the information quickly and efficiently. Since complainant D’Souza was put to inconvenience in all these four cases, he requires to be compensated, observed Goa state Information Commission.

Caste, creed and census

T

he census is not just a count of the country’s population; it is an essential tool of governance and planning for development. With the process for the 2011 Census of India already underway, a number of people’s representatives cutting across party lines have demanded that caste be included as a category of enumeration in the coming census. This has thrown up a huge controversy, with different political forces expressing different opinions on the issue. While the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was initially vocal in support of including caste in the census, after the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) strongly opposed it, the party has preferred to say no more on the subject. Other backward caste formations like Lalu Prasad’s Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Mulayam Singh’s Samajwadi Party (SP) and Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) naturally want caste included. In the ruling Congress, opinion is divided down the middle, but many of the UPA allies are pushing for caste to be included. Proponents say that since caste is part and parcel of the structure of Indian society, there is nothing wrong in getting a more accurate picture of the caste composition of India through the census. The problem is, caste as a category was last used in the 1931 Census of India. After independence, Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru were not in favour of giving caste too much prominence, as the scheduled castes and tribes had been given reservations that were expected to end caste-based inequalities within 10 years. Consequently, from the very first post-independence census in 1951 onwards, enumeration of castes was discarded as a category, except in the case of scheduled castes. In the ’90s and after, however, reservations were extended to the ‘Other Backward Castes’ in education and jobs. And the politicians who represent people of these castes are the ones demanding the inclusion of caste in the census. It appears they want to know whether the 27 per cent quota in jobs and education given to OBCs is sufficient or not. India is rapidly urbanising, and caste distinctions are much less acutely felt in the cities, so India Inc has registered its strong opposition to inclusion of caste in the census. However, it would surprise many to know that the ongoing census in the United States of America (USA) – arguably the most ‘advanced’ nation in the world – has a detailed section on race, origin and ethnicity. In fact, the addition of the word ‘negro’ as an alternative description of African Americans raised a minor controversy in the country. Interestingly, one of the race/ethnic categories in the ongoing US census is ‘Asian-Indian’, recognising that Indians are now a significant minority in that country. Problems can and do arise in census issues, especially when they are used for political mobilisation. We in Goa are all aware that our ‘Marathivadis’ used to campaign among Hindus, before every census, urging them to record their mother tongue as ‘Marathi’ and not ‘Konkani’. That their campaigns never succeeded is another matter. But it shows the dangers of making the census a political issue. Collecting caste-based data itself will be a major challenge, as it has not been attempted after 1931. Besides, it could encourage respondents to deliberately misrepresent facts, because they know that the data is likely to be used to decide reservation policies. Mobilisation around caste identities in the census can have dangerous consequences. Not only will it lead to distorted data, we face the possibilities of increased social tensions and large scale disruptions – as we saw in Rajasthan in 2008 – from agitations to claim caste-based benefits. However, if all political forces reach a consensus to avoid all campaigns before and during the census, caste enumeration will merely give us the numbers, enabling a more accurate picture of caste numbers in the country. And if the government ensures that the right use is made of such statistics, it could be a useful exercise overall.

The recent Air India strike which led to the cancellation of over 130 flights, inconveniencing more than 13000 passengers and logging in to a loss of more than Rs 12 crore needs to be condemned.

There is no earnest commitment to solve legal cases as soon as possible writes CAETANO DE ABREU

omplacency, unwarranted pity, and hoping against hopes for Justice to be delivered promptly, are the three stressful ingredients for a total disaster, which I may elaborate partly because constraints abound over my extended prose which ought to be limited. I should admit that this article cannot travail the ignominy of being chopped while on editorial board just because I have an urge to unnecessary lengthen the same which may be deemed as utter rubbish. Nevertheless, in regards to this article, there is a paradox in delivering the much needed Justice, which in short run can procure some relief of sorts. However, being aware of the nuances of Indian Legal System, gives me the right to state that justice in all forms and protocol is sabbatically denied due to its unwarranted procurement, delays and unwarranted interferences which is akin to have never ever been delivered. It is to be convinced that our legal system is a much jeopardized affair, as can be visualized with the pending cases which is giving sleepless nights to the litigants as well as appellants who are in search of justice. I am well aware of some cases which commenced somewhere in 1959 with seemingly no end to conclude the same, amicably or otherwise. I bestow that the same should be attributed to corrupt advocates and the equally corrupt Judiciary who are prolonging the course for further proclamations and Suits in lieu of promptly dispensing justice through a fast track ambit, which is very much required to assuage the plight of either of the contesting parties. In India, the Laws contravenes each other, as its interpretation is reliant upon the one who interprets the malaise, which usually is on par with his/her own manipulation and which unfortunately is accepted by the Honourable Court because the interpretation is vague in its definition. Thus there is no contest in regards to the delay, and the process is therefore lengthened due to noncomprehension over the subject matter, nor is there an earnest commitment to solve the case as soon as possible. However, this paradox can be subjective to civil imbroglio which can be seen with the cases pending in the Courts for many decades with the matter commencing trivially with the Mamlatdar and extending unduly to the Supreme Court after transgressing all the Courts de facto. However, what takes the cake is that the same procedure is applicable in criminal cases

View From My Panvddo as well, which is putting in dilemma the angst of the perpetrators of crimes against the humanity as well as that of the innocents implicated unnecessary with no criminal evidence found (although penalised alt the same) as no one knows its outcome. There are many such instances which can be elaborated further. However, I must contemplate the folly of Indian Laws with the recent trial of one hardcore criminal which perhaps may augur far reaching implications if one bides for longer time. India, and more specifically Mumbai, is gloating about the death sentence awarded to the lone surviving terrorist of the 26/11 strikes, Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab who has been described by Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam as a venomous snake, a mad dog, a horse run amok, a wolf, a demon, and a killing machine all in one. To which I comment: thereby lies the tale of infamy and delayed Justice. I personally feel that Sub-Inspector Tukaram Ombale gave up his life unnecessarily with no way to stop that slaughter of more innocents. Unfortunately he became the prey of that tragedy with just a lathi to his credit, although with loads of goodwill amongst the cadres.

We consider it a waste of time. But setting aside a little bit of our time everyday to rest and enjoy ourselves, is very important. This time could be spent alone or with our loved ones, Reading good books or pottering around in the garden, is a good way to spend time on your own. But spending time with loved ones is even better. One day, a young mother was in the kitchen struggling to finish washing a big pile of dirty dishes. Her little daughter tugged at her dress for the third time wanting her to come out and play. The mother looked in despair at the huge pile of dirty clothes waiting to be washed and ironed. Then she looked at the little pleading face below. Then she wisely said to herself “There’ll always be clothes to wash but my little girl won’t always be little.” And the two of them laughed happily as they walked to the park. When we look back on our lives, the fun times spent with loved

from flying their national carrier, not to mention the service which has hit rock bottom. Gone are the days when Air India was under the wings of JRD Tata, where passengers were given the Maharaja treatment in flight and on the ground. With the helm of affairs being managed by netas and babus it is doubtful that Air India will regain its past glory. The only solution is privatisation whereby corruption and nepotism can be got rid off in exchange with efficiency and vision.

Air India strike - II Adelmo Fernandes, Vasco Even though the 33-hour flash strike by a section of Air India employees was called off following a Delhi High Court order, the management cracked down on the strike leaders sacking 15 and suspending 13 others. It has been reported that over 100 employees could face action. This action of sacking employees after a strike has been called off is probably unprecedented in the annals of labour unrest in the country. But then the Air India management had the backing of the Government for some strict action on the striking employees because of the timing of the strike. It is understood that an Air India plane carrying the relatives of the dead and coffins for the dead bodies could not leave for Mangalore because of the strike. This is most disheartening and inhumane action on the part of the employees. If at all the strike was to be called it could have been done at a later date and not when the entire nation was mourning for those who died in the plane crash. It may be recalled that when the Air India pilots went on a flash strike in September 2009 no action was taken by the management. But this time around action was necessitated because of the timing of the strike. Indeed the travelling public cannot be taken ‘hostage’ by the airline employees all too often.

Do we elect them? Gustavo Godinho, Nagoa As I was going through the letters to the editor some thoughts struck me and I decided to share them with others. These thoughts have reference to many letters that I go through in this newspaper. I always

I am personally and rationally (thanks to my honorifics) against thePhoto Capitalby Punishment, Joegoaukalthough I must admit that some kinds of criminality are against my sense of unrighteousness for which I condemn the same to Hades for that raging fire to engulf that easy-going and contentious soul. Kasab’s guilt was never in doubt, although the steps taken to condemn him, exemplifies India’s faith in its Legal System, never mind that the execution will take years to actually happen, although the Law Minister Veerappa Moily said that if Kasab appeals against his death sentence, it would be fast tracked and he would be hanged in a year’s time, which for me is hogwash which perhaps follows, that Kasab will bide his time in a luxurious jail waiting for his hopeful release or die in relative comfort. It is reported that Government of India have already spent up to the end of his trial at the fortified Arthur Road Jail, around eight crores of rupees and there is still no end to that drama. It can be noted that the capital punishment or rather the death sentence, is pronounced in the case of Kasab. However, the paradox is, that the same requires the sentence to be confirmed by the Bombay High Court. If confirmed, the

convict will have the chance to appeal to the Supreme Court of India which in its turn, can either stay the process or get it sent to the President of India. However, the supreme irony lies in the process of politics of clemency petition which itself is steeped in delay. To better comprehend the legal quandary, that to the families of the victims is an absurd reality, it contains that mercy petitions are filed under Article 72 of the Constitution before the President and these are forwarded to the Ministry of Home Affairs(MHA) for its opinion and views. These petitions are examined by the Ministry in consultation with the concerned State Governments. After the views expressed by the State Governments where the crime or crimes was perpetrated, the MHA sends the files to the President with noting of the Home Minister. However, in theory, the matter can be sorted out, in practice the lethargy and apathy of the system, clubbed with politics of decision, lets the criminals sentenced to death for those heinous crimes, live on. It can be said that the power vested in Article 72 of the Indian Constitution does not contain any time limitations where the power conferred might be exercised. The dilemma on Kasab’s execution is rife with contests, as there are a little over 308 convicts awaiting execution, with 25 appeals involving 48 convicts pending with the President of India; which makes Kasab convict No. 49 on the list, to which fact the Law Minister expresses, “You cannot pick, choose and hang, “ which in other words clearly means that one cannot jump the queue to satisfy one’s own lust to kill, or rather, deliver the much needed justice. Ergo the reason Kasab’s execution and that of other blood thirsty demons will be unduly delayed now even more, with the pretence of ailments and other assorted disabilities. If we at all feel about the legalities of the process to be skewed for the justice to be delivered, I can pinpoint various other cases pending with the Civil Courts, where the matter never seems to end with rigmarole on platter, with the addition of interveners in cahoots with Counsels who are bent on reverting the judicial process towards their own benefits, for which once again, I emphasize: Justice delayed = Justice denied, and when it will ever end ... only time will tell!

ones are the memories we treasure. The memories we cherish are when we went fishing with Grandpa, when Grandma taught us to bake her famous Christmas cake, the family picnics, going swimming with friends, squabbling with siblings, playing pranks on our friends etc. Work is important, but people and relationships are even more important. Work will always be around, but people won’t. Our loved ones grow up and usually move away. It is best to enjoy them while they are around. Spending time, having fun with loved ones strengthens relationships and bonds. When people spend time together, they grow closer. It is a good way to bridge the communication gap and the generation gap between parents and children. But it is important to find an activity that both age groups enjoy like fishing, playing football, exercising together, cooking etc. Time spent resting and enjoying ourselves refreshes us. It breaks the monotony of doing the same work and jobs everyday. It brings newness and freshness into our lives. When we go back to work after a break, we work faster and more efficiently. One day, a successful, young businessman went to visit his

friend. His friend noticed that he was unhappy and miserable, so he asked him what was wrong. The young man replied “My business has taken over my life. I just don’t have time anymore for my wife and children. I don’t enjoy my job and I feel really miserable.” His friend replied “Why don’t you make time for yourself and your family? Surely a smart fellow like you can do that much!” “You don’t understand,“ the young man said becoming agitated. He pulled a little book out of his pocket and said “Look! This book is driving me crazy. It’s full of dates of appointments and meetings with clients, colleagues etc. How in the world am I supposed to find time to fit in even more stuff?” “Well, “ said his friend calmly “Who writes in the book that’s driving you crazy? YOU DO!” How do we make time to relax and enjoy when we have such busy schedules? If some people can take time out to take a break, so can we! It is each one’s decision. Once this becomes a priority, we will definitely find time for it. And it will indeed be time well wasted! Oops Sorry! I meant time well spent!

Letters to the Editor

Letter of the Day

Tie down US envoy

S Kamat, Alto Betim

Lately we have the US Ambassador, Timothy Roemer expanding the sphere of his visits to include the poverty ridden areas of this country. The last he did was walk on the pipelines that adjoin the Dharavi colony at Mumbai to see the muck and filth in which our poor people live. One cannot understand the proclivity of the US Ambassador to go into this kind of slumming. If his intention is to prove to Hilary Clinton that he should not be transferred to the front line areas of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq by sending back reports that the battles India’s poor fights every day against poverty, disease and starvation just to stay alive are more dangerous than the war zones in those named countries then it is fine. But giving him carte blanche to go around the country is not desirable. One needs to look at equity here. Will the Indian Ambassador in the US be allowed to visit inner city areas in their metropolises or soup kitchens or health care centres etc. even if our diplomats find the time or have the inclination to make these visits. The answer is – No, since the US authorities will find a reason to gently tell us to mind our business. We have to draw a line somewhere and encourage foreign diplomats to do their normal work and not step beyond it. Similar is the celebrated visit of Bill Gates to Amethi on invitation by our Gandhi scion, Rahul. Why are we doing this kind of sophisticated begging which one thought we had put behind us long ago? We should also show a certain amount of self-respect by eschewing such ‘sophisticated’ begging practices. Will we learn? Only time will tell. get to read in those letters that the ministers we have elected are of no use, corrupt, destroying our mother land and so on. But, do we really elect the ministers, or the ministers make us elect themselves? If we are electing them, then why do we have to beg to save our own motherland? Why are we forming different associations and groups to save our motherland from our own ministers? Why are we like slaves to them? Why do we become so helpless? Why are we on the streets with different problems and issues? If we have to slog to solve the various problems then what are these ministers elected for? And let me remind you that these problems we face today are all due to the corruption and greed of these ministers. We are suffering only because we never elect them but they force us to elect themselves. And we all know how they get elected. I also fail to understand what NGOs formed to save water, fields, trees etc do during election time. They drum up excellent support for all their rallies and agitations. If these NGOs use their strength, corrupt ministers can be shown the door. Till then may God save our Goa.

Road casualties Oscar de Gouveia Pinto, Canada It is really unfortunate that life is treated with such scant respect. One has to read the Obituary column and see an announcement “Died under tragic circumstances”, with such frequency, that it is high time each Goan assumes responsibility for these fatalities. Each one plays a part by driving callously, not doing anything about it, or ignoring the rule of the law. Needless to say the law authorities are equally to blame, as you see buses, trucks and scooters driving past the cops at dangerous speeds, overtaking when they should not. I cannot understand the resistance that two wheeler riders have to wearing helmets. In the West this is mandatory even for the cyclists. Life is indeed considered very precious here. Is the cost of a personal protective equipment more valuable than one’s life? There are sufficient studies and statistics to show that protective equipment like helmets, and seat belts save lives. It is time that Goans wake up and reflect that every time they take to the road, they leave behind a loved one

who risks reading or hearing tragic news of an unfortunate incident, and, God forbid, it could well be you next. I hope that we come to a day of awakening in our lives when we finally learn to see things as they are, and not as we are.

Where is the water, Churchill?

Ayres Sequeira, Salvador do Mundo The PWD Minister Churchill Alemao had promised free water connection to every household in 2008 after realising that people wasted water at the public tap. Accordingly, at the request of an influential person with the local panchayat, I had submitted my application with all the documents duly attested. Its only recently after one and a half year I am told that the connection is for schedule caste people. How sad! In our own land we are differentiated on caste, class and creed but at the time of elections politicians consider us one to vote for them. Recently, the so called man of the masses went gaga over his birthday laying foundation stones and making inaugural speeches with empty promises. I and many others were thirsty for a drop of water on that hot sultry summer day. What is this Churchill irmão?

Priorities first Kajal Chatterjee, Kolkata Kudos to Herald for its extremely relevant editorial “What about Gross National Happiness?” (26 May). Instead of hankering after revolution in Information Technology or exploring water on the moon, Bhutan has focused its attention on health, education and values of its citizens. It tries to measure its prosperity by the unique index of “Gross National Happiness” and ensures that prosperity is shared by everyone. But in India, poverty, hunger and malnutrition are still hard realities. The parties in power have merely wasted their time and resources in bickering over irrelevant issues like Ram Mandir and Pokhran. The welfare of those living below the poverty line seems to be the last priority for politicians. Unless the 230 million undernourished Indians are relieved from their daily ordeal, all rhetoric of “food sufficiency” and “economic growth” will remain a sham.

Paths of Wisdom Divine Action Against a Tyrant By Samir Khan Abu Musa Ash‘ari relates that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: Almighty Allah postpones taking any action against a tyrant (so that the cup of his sins may get full), and thereafter when He takes him to task, He does not let him escape. Then he (the Holy Prophet) read the Qur’anic verse: ‘Such is the seizing of your Lord that when He does seize the towns immersed in wrong-doing, His seizing is painful, terrible’ (11:102).” (Bukhari and Muslim) The hadith (sayings of Prophet Muhammad) under study throws light on the Divine scheme of punishment. Allah keeps postponing punishment, thereby providing a wrongdoer the opportunity to mend his ways until the latter refuses to turn to Him or the cup of his sins is filled to the brim. Allah is Most-Merciful and Forgiving. But it is certain that when oppression and tyranny touches the limits and yet the tyrant fails to realise his crime, Allah takes Him to task and then the Divine chastisement is really painful and terrible. In another hadith reported by Imam Muslim on the authority of Jabir bin Abdullah, the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Avoid cruelty and injustice, for, on the Day of Judgment the same will turn into several kinds of darkness; and guard yourselves against miserliness; for this has ruined nations who lived before you. Miserliness led them to bloodshed and to treat unlawful as lawful.” The hadith also makes it clear that cruelty and injustice result in ultimate failure and Divine chastisement. In the same breath, the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) warned the believers against miserliness, for it gives way to cruelty and injustice and yields the same result.

Tribunal indicts top commander for bias PTI NEW DELHI, MAY 27

The Armed Forces Tribunal has held that a former army commander showed bias towards a brigadier under whose command some of the major victories were achieved in the 1999 Kargil conflict and directed that the affected officer be considered for a notional promotion. The tribunal has asked the army to consider former 70 Infantry Brigade Commander Brigadier Devinder Singh for promotion to the notional rank of major general and to put the relevant records and documents pertaining to operations by his formation in Batalik sector written by Lt. Gen. Kishan Pal, then General Officer Commanding (GOC) 15 Corps, be corrected and put in the right perspective. In its order, the tribunal, headed by Justice A K Mathur, held that "the annual confidential reports (ACRs) were not written in an objective and unbiased

We will study verdict: army With the Armed Forces Tribunal indicting a top officer for falsifying Kargil war reports and showing bias towards a brigadier, the army today said it will take action on the issue after analysing the verdict. “We have not yet received a copy of the tribunal's judgement. Once we get it, it will be analysed and appropriate action would be taken," a senior army officer told PTI here. The principal bench of the tri-

bunal, in its verdict, has held that Lt Gen (retd) Kishan Pal, former 15 Corps General Officer Commanding (GOC) showed bias against Brigadier Devinder Singh, former 70 Infantry Brigade Commander and belittled his achievements in the war besides falsifying accounts of battles during the Kargil operations. The tribunal has directed that the affected officer be considered for a notional promotion to the rank of a major general.

manner" by Lt. Gen Pal. Noting that the report of a person who writes the ACRs in a biased manner could not be allowed to sustain, it observed that the then GOC was not favourably motivated towards Brigadier Singh and had at-

tempted to tailor the report belittling his achievements. “As per the tribunal order, I will also be considered for promotion to the notional rank of a major general and the records about the operations by my brigade in the war will be set straight,” Brig (retd) Singh said

here. In his plea, which was transferred from the Delhi High Court to the Principal Bench of the Tribunal, Brig Singh said he had contended that in the postKargil operations report, Lt Gen Pal had falsely shown four of his most successful battalions under a fictitious headquarters commanded by the then Deputy General Officer of 3 Infantry Division, Brig Ashok Duggal. “For reasons best known to Lt Gen Kishan Pal, he was favouring and giving credit to Brig Duggal and my command tenure was shown in bad light. Though it could not help him and he could not take his next rank, I had to suffer a lot because of this act,” Brig Singh said here. The tribunal has also asked the army to expunge all the ACRs of Brig Singh written by Lt Gen Pal. lt, Singh said, has also observed that because of the operational differences be-

tween him and Lt Gen Pal, the GOC was not favourably motivated towards him and had attempted to tailor reports belittling his achievements. During the Kargil operations, the Srinagar-based 15 Corps under its Lt Gen Pal had the responsibility of evicting Pakistan Army regulars and intruders from Indian posts in the mountains along the National Highway 1A in the Ladakh region. Maintaining that it was a long struggle since the Kargil conflict 11 years back, Brig Singh said, "Certainly one feels vindicated.” “One has gone through a number of stages of non-statutory complaints, statutory complaints, legal notices and several writ petitions...Finally the order has seen the light of the day.”

Upper caste girl, Dalit man stoned to death in AP village PTI HYDERABAD, MAY 27

In a suspected case of “ honour killing”, a couple was stoned to death by the relatives of an upper caste girl who had eloped with a married man from another caste at a village in Andhra Pradesh's Nizamabad district, police said today. “The girl's relatives attacked the couple, S Srinivas and Swapna, when they were sleeping outside their house in Krishna Jiwadi village at around 10.30 last night. The couple was dragged on to the road and hit with boulders resulting in their instantaneous death,” Nizamabad Superintendent of Police K Venkateshwara Rao told PTI over phone. Giving details, the SP said, the girl Swapna (aged around

22 years), went missing from the village last year, after which her father lodged a missing complaint. The girl, however, reafter home turned one-and-half-month and the complaint was withdrawn. But, Swapna once again went missing after staying in the village for about a month and returned only a week ago along with one Srinivas, with whom she had stayed for the past nine months, the senior police officer said. Srinivas, who belongs to the Scheduled Caste, is a married man with two children. Swapna's family members and relatives suspected that the girl was in love with Srinivas and that she had eloped with him. “They (relatives) were reportedly angered over the girl having

a relationship with a married man that toobelonging to another caste,” Rao said. “It is still not clear whether Swapna and Srinivas had married and where they were staying for the past nine months and since how long their love affair was,” the SP said. “But since their return to the village a week ago, the duo was staying together in the village along with the wife and children of Srinivas,” Rao said. “We are still investigating as the incident (killing) was reported late last night. We have taken into custody one person and more arrests will be made soon,” the SP said. A case of double murder has been registered and an autopsy was conducted on the bodies of Srinivas and Swapna at a hospital in Kamareddy town.

India, Tibet ties like those of teacher and student: Dalai PTI PATNA, MAY 27

Buddhist spiritual leader the Dalai Lama today said the relationship between India and Tibet was that of a 'guru and chela' (teacher and disciple). “India is the guru and we are reliable chelas. Since we have produced Buddhist scholars according to Nalanda tradition, we could be termed as reliable chelas for keeping the Nalanda tradition of Buddhism intact,” the Lama said. He was speaking on the inauguration of a park named Buddha Smriti Park here on Buddha Purnima, the holy day on which Lord Buddha was born, got enlightenment and mahaparinirvana (unity with the absolute). The Dalai Lama also named the 200-foot-high main stupa dedicated to the memory of Buddha as 'Pataliputra Karuna Stupa'. After the ceremony he told reporters that things were changing fast in China. “Things were changing in China since the 1959 crisis. Over the last two years, more than 1,000 articles have been written by 200 Chinese authors who are very supportive of our stand of an independent Tibet," the Lama said. He said historically China too

had Buddhist affiliations and there were over 200 million Chinese Buddhists which was more than the number of Indian Buddhists. Referring to the Naxalite problem, the Buddhist leader said one needed to go to the root cause of the problem. Reforms were not reaching the masses and people of upper castes were exploiting the lower castes, he alleged. He congratulated Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for initiating development measures and said the State was back on the track of development. The Buddhist leader planted a sapling of the Mahabodhi

banyan tree brought from Sri Lanka. Relics of the Buddhist era brought from Sri Lanka, Japan, Thailand, Myanmar and South Korea were installed in the park built by Bihar government to commemorate the 2550th anniversary of 'mahanirvana' (salvation) of Lord Buddha. The park has been built at a cost of over Rs 100 crore near the Patna railway junction. Addressing the function, Kumar said the stupa enshrining relics from different countries of Asia epitomized universal brotherhood and peace. Kumar said the State government had taken up a special project to identify and develop the Buddhist circuit in Bihar. .

Pg10 Russia, China concerned over Afghan drug threat UNI MOSCOW, MAY 27

Russia's Drug Control chief Viktor Ivanov, who is currently on a visit to Beijing, today said his Chinese colleagues shared Russia's concerns about the growing drug threat from Afghanistan. “Both the Russian and the Chinese side note the extremely low efficiency of anti-drug efforts by the international coalition forces in Afghanistan,” Mr Ivanov told RIA Novosti. Moscow has criticised US-led forces in Afghanistan for failing to eradicate opium production and warned over the weekend that drug trafficking was endangering Russia's national security. Ivanov said high-ranking Chinese officials, including Public Security Minister Meng Jianzhu and Deputy Foreign Minister Cheng Guoping, had also expressed

'particular concern' about Afghan drug trafficking, which they said “escalates tensions” in China's troubled Xinjiang Uyghur autonomous district. A year ago, Russia provided the coalition forces with information on 175 drug labs in Afghanistan, but “they continue to send heroin to our countries, and none of them has been eliminated,” Mr Ivanov also said. Russia said production of heroin in Afghanistan has increased almost tenfold since the US-led invasion to oust the Taliban in 2001. The Chinese Public Security Minister said the amount of Afghan drugs was also on the increase in China. It rose from 4.3 metric tons of heroin last year to six metric tons in the first five months of 2010.

Spain Parliament backs austerity by one vote REUTERS MADRID, MAY 27

Spain's governing Socialists won approval for a 18.4 billion dollar austerity package by just one vote today, avoiding a defeat that would have rattled markets and potentially brought down the government. The bill was approved by 169 votes in favour to 168 against, after the opposition Popular Party voted against, even making sure one of its deputies was brought to the session in an ambulance. The bill was only saved when 10 deputies from centre-right Catalan nationalists CiU abstained after criticising the bill, saying they did not want Spain to be plunged into a Greek-style crisis.

Cameron, whose centre-right Conservatives formed a coalition with the smaller, centre-left Liberal Democrats after a May 6 election failed to produce an outright winner, also called for a resumption of world trade talks to give the global economy a shot in the arm. “There is now an international consensus that dealing with our budget deficits is vitally important, if you look at the threats to the euro zone and the threats to our economies around the world,” he told BBC Radio.

ReuTeRs MUMBAI, MAY 27

More Indian farmers are likely to take farm loans, encouraged by higher agri-commodity prices, hopes of a normal monsoon and a successful loan waiver scheme, a top official of state-run National Bank of Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) said. "We should reach somewhere around 5.5 crore (55 mil-

lion) farmers in 2010/11 in terms of coverage and loan target is 3,75,000 crore rupees (3.75 trillion rupees, $79.3 bln) ," a jump of 21 percent, Chairman Umesh Chandra Sarangi told Reuters in an interview late on Wednesday. In 2009/10, financial institutions had covered 45.6 million farmers, he said. India's monsoon rainfall is likely to be 98 percent of the

long-term average, the weather office said in late April. The country's food price index rose to 16.49 percent in the year to May 8, government data on May 20 showed, a touch higher than the prior week's annual reading of 16.44 percent as fruit and vegetables prices climbed on the back of a heat wave. "We have been telling banks that the basic objective of debt

Monsoon pauses 6 days, not a worry yet: govt ReuTeRs NEW DELHI, MAY 27

Monsoon, vital for farming and economic growth in India, has not advanced for the past six days due to last week's cyclone Laila, but weather officials said there was as yet no reason to worry. Facing high food prices after the monsoon failed last year, India is counting heavily on normal June-September rainfall to help the government tackle supply-side inflation. Street protests over high prices have kept the government under pressure, and if the rains fail and inflation soars it could force an interest rate hike, complicating government plans to borrow about $100 billion during the current financial year. Monsoon winds were weak, and may need up to two days to strengthen, D. Sivananda Pai, director of the National Climate Center at the western city

of Pune, told Reuters by phone. The India Meteorological Department has forecast that the June-September monsoon will hit the mainland on May 30, two days before normal, by entering the southern state of Kerala. "It is already raining in Kerala but we are waiting for certain characteristics of monsoon," Pai said. Officials say that they declare the onset of monsoon only if the rainfall on the southern tip of the country is accompanied by other developments including a particular level of moisture in the air, the spread of rains and other parameters. B N Goswami, director of the Pune-based Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, said weather conditions over the Indian ocean did not signal an early arrival of monsoon rains. "This is because large scale conditions over the equatorial

Indian Ocean are still not favourable for a timely onset." But this is not yet a big cause for concern, weather officials and experts said. "There is still time for an onset. Nothing much to worry about as of now," R.R. Kelkar, former director general, India Meteorological Department said. This year, the monsoon reached the first destination of its four-month journey across the subcontinent -- the Andaman and Nicobar Islands -on May 17, instead of the usual May 20, before moving to many parts of the Bay of Bengal in the following week. Monsoon rains irrigate 60 percent of the country's farms, making their timely arrival and even distribution vital for agriculture in India, which is the world's biggest consumer of sugar and a leading producer and consumer or rice and wheat.

waiver was to bring back those 40 million farmers whose access to credit has been stopped because of them having become defaulters," he said. The government, in the 2008/09 budget, announced a 710-billon-rupee debt waiver scheme and in the last budget extended the repayment period from Dec 31, 2009 to June 30, 2010.

Power Grid norms to hit Chinese gear ReuTeRs NEW DELHI, MAY 27

State-run Power Grid Corp of India Ltd has made it mandatory for equipment suppliers to have factories in India to participate in its tenders, the Mint reported, adding the move will hurt Chinese firms. The newspaper quoted the transmission company's chairman as saying that poor aftersales service, especially by Chinese companies that sold equipment such as transformers and reactors, were a reason for the decision. "While their rates are very cheap, there is a quality concern," S K Chaturvedi said. "To overcome the concerns, we are insisting that they either form a joint venture or give an undertaking that within three years, the vendor will start manufacturing equipment in India," it quoted the chairman as saying.

In FY10, government targeted farm loans of 3.25 trillion rupees. "This target has been achieved," Sarangi said. According to available data till Feb-end, all banks put together had disbursed 3.08 trillion rupees. "The farm loan target would surely be surpassed." "It is possible (to achieve 2010/11 farm loan target of 3.75 trillion rupees). Firstly, a

normal good monsoon will enhance demand for credit. Secondly, covering more of the freshly eligible farmers will also add to target," Sarangi said. "Now the issue is small and marginal farmers. Eighty-two percent of farmers in the country are small and marginal farmers...so while trying to push higher credit you have to deepen, you have to widen to

cover more number of farmers," he said. "Cost of inputs like seed and fertiliser has risen significantly and that is also prompting farmers to borrow more from financial institutions." Government would reschedule loans in cases of defaults that happened owing to bad monsoons last year, Sarangi said adding impact of defaults would not be much.

Triumph eyeing Rs 450-cr Rev from India in 5-years PTI MUMBAI, MAY 27

Global women's inner wear brand, Triumph, is eyeing an over Rs 450-crore turnover in the next five-years from the Indian market, a top company official said. The company, which has a presence in 120 countries, plans to invest nearly 7 per cent of its global turnover in the Indian market, the official said. "Demand for branded fashionable lingerie in India is slowly picking-up as there is a shift from need-based purchase to fashion-driven purchase. With Triumph being the first lingerie brand in India, we expect the turnover to go up to over Rs 450-crore in the next five-years," Triumph International (India)'s MD, Thorsten Al-

lenstein, said. The company has launched only two of its brands--Triumph and Sloggi--in India. Allenstein said that the company could not directly invest in India but has to depend on retail and franchisee businesses

for selling its products here. "Owing to the Foreign Direct Investment regulations applicable in India, we cannot sell our products directly here. So we have to completely depend on the retail and franchisee routes," he said. The company presently has 7-9 flagships in India, especially in the metros and 20 partner stores across India. He said that the company's products were

also available in 120 departmental stores. About the company's diversification plans, Allenstein said, "Our goal at this moment is to become an undisputed dealer in women's inner wear in India. At the same time, we are also looking to launch our premium menswear brand, Sloggi Men, in India, in the next 3-5 years." In the next 5-6 years, India is likely to be among the top 10 countries where the company would be selling its products. When asked whether the global meltdown had affected the company's business in India, he said, "There was no recession in India. We made an all-time-high business last year. This is mainly because Triumph is an established brand and there is loyalty for the brand."

Ayurveda, tourism industry gearing up for monsoon PTI KOCHI, MAY 27

Gearing up for the South West Monsoon, which is not far away, Ayurveda and Tourism industry in Kerala are all set to woo tourists with rejuvenation packages and never before offers to beat the lean rainy season. Monsoon is an apt time to undertake rejuvenation therapies. Synchronised massage, 'Pizhichil, Shirodara, Njavrakizy, Nasayam' etc all form part of the Rejuvenation package. 'Pancha Karma' therapies are also undertaken as per the demands of the visitors. The packages range from a day to 14 days costing between Rs 600 to Rs 14,000. The patients are also given 'Kazhikada Kanji' (a medicated rice porridge) for body rejuvenation,

says Dr D R Sadath of Kerala Ayurveda (KA). During last monsoon season at least 50 foreign tourists, mainly from US, UK and France undertook treatments at Kerala Ayurveda Ltd (KAL) and there could be a 100% increase this year, says P P Vipin, regional manager (Marketing) KA. Some of them wanted to experience rejuvenation treatment during monsoon, while few others had come for treatment for skin related problems and back aches. After undertaking treatments, most got up to 90 per cent relief, he claimed. Kerala Tourism Development Corporation (KTDC) has announced its Monsoon package called "see and experience" rains under which three schemes, ranging from five to eight days, have been designed

‘Electric cars may shed aid’ ReuTeRs SMYRNA, MAY 27

Nissan Motor Co and alliance partner Renault could market electric vehicles without government incentives within four years as global sales reach 500,000 to 1 million vehicles per year, executives said on Wednesday. Nissan, which is introducing a mass-market Leaf electric car later this year, needs government incentives to spark initial demand but understands those incentives will not be permanent, Nissan-Renault Chief Executive Carlos Ghosn said. "You need to jump start electric cars at a certain level so that we can get scale and the scale will allow us to reduce costs," Ghosn told reporters after a groundbreaking at a plant in Tennessee that will produce the Leaf and its battery. "We think that scale for us is between 500,000 and 1 million cars a year," he said. "When you get between 500,000 and 1 million cars per year, we don't need government support." Nissan-Renault could have as many as eight electric vehicles between them within a few years, allowing the companies to reach the scale that would make the government incentives unnecessary, executives said. "We believe we will need two to four years of incentives and supports to reach the level of volume that will free up the cost reductions that we need to implement," said Carlos Tavares, Nissan's chief of the Americas. Tavares expects the cost of batteries used in the Leaf and other electric vehicles to come down sharply within four years

for Nissan and Renault. Nissan broke ground on a $1.7 billion a project to expand its assembly plant in Smyrna and build an adjacent lithiumion battery plant that will be one of the biggest in North America. The facilities are expected to create 1,300 jobs. Tavares said Nissan has an edge in battery development by being first in the industry to introduce a mass-market electric vehicle in late 2010 in Japan, the United States and Europe. The first Leaf vehicles and their lithium-ion batteries are being built in Japan. When it is fully functioning, the Smyrna plant will be able to produce 150,000 Leaf electric cars per year. The new battery plant will have the capacity to produce 200,000 battery packs. Nissan has not said yet whether the additional battery capacity would be used for a different electric vehicle within the Nissan or Renault family. Nissan has said it would be open to selling the batteries to other automakers. The Nissan plant investment was supported with $1.4 billion of U.S. Energy Department loans. Nissan started taking orders for the Leaf in April. It had about 13,000 fully refundable orders in the United States as of Tuesday and 6,000 in Japan. "We have enough capacity to start the mass marketing of electric cars, but if we see when December comes that the hand-raising and pre-orderings transform fully to sales, we are going to have to make a decision about adding additional capacity," Ghosn said.

catering prime locations like Bolgatty in Kochi, Tea County in Munnar, Aaranyanivas in Thekkady, Kumarakom Waterscapes and Kovalam Samudra. House-boating in the picturesque Alappuzha backwaters is also part of the package. Besides, boarding and lodging at affordable rates, additional linkages like spa treatement and taxi services are also being provided. The Taj Group of Hotels is offering a third night free offer on rooms for those staying in their property for two nights, according to Thomas Roulin, Director (Sales) Taj Hotels Kerala. Capitalising on the rains, Wayanad Tourism Organisation (WTO) along with the District Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC) would be organising a

Sujana, Nichia tie up in LED PTI HYDERABAD, MAY 27

Sujana Energy, a part of the city-based Sujana Group, entered into a strategic partnership with Japanese company Nichia Corp and both companies would explore opportunities in LED lighting and Display. As part of the partnership, the two firms will collaborate on compatible capabilities that can be applied to produce competitive products. "Renewable energy is the focus area for the Sujana Group and I am sure that this partnership where two large corporations come together is a sign of commitment to make latest technology products that are applicable and affordable to consumers," Y S Chowdary, chairman, Sujana Group said. Nichia Corporation is the largest supplier of white LEDs in the world. It offers many products and technologies that can be adapted to Indian conditions, while Sujana Energy is strong in R and D and has the understanding of the unique needs of India. The two companies make for an ideal partnership to develop products that are designed for a variety of uses, Sujana officials said. "Demand for LED is almost limitless worldwide. Although competition is extremely high in Indian market, I believe, this collaboration between Sujana and Nichia will be a breakthrough for expanding LED lighting and Display," said Makoto Takenaka, MD of Nichia Chemical Pte Ltd. Nichia Corporation will provide Sujana Energy a product headstart, during which, Nichia will do best to make its new and suited products available only to Sujana for the Indian market, Hari Kiran Chereddi, MD of Sujana Energy Ltd, said.

three-day 'Splash 2010' from July 9 to showcase typical rural sports of the hilly district-- biking, trekking, Commando walking and Crab catching, paddy cultivation all in the rain. This is perhaps the only destination in the state which offers visitors a variety of products to choose from -- Adventure, Plantation, Nature, Wild life, Rural scape of Kerala and Tribals. Effort would also be to promote unknown art which blends with Kerala's folklore and little known artists, WTO Secretary K R Vancheswaran said. Wayanad is also known as the 'weekend destination' of the IT crowd in Bangalore, which is hardly five hours journey by road. However, a huge inflow of tourists would only

harm Wayanad, a bio diverse region spread across about 2,132 square km on the lofty western Ghats, he said. Hidden away in the hills of the land are some of the oldest tribes, as yet untouched by civilisation. The very first 'pre historic engraving in Kerala discovered in the foothills of Edakkal and around Ambukuthimala bear testimony to a pre historic culture dating back to mesolithic age. The WTO has submitted a master plan to government through District Tourism Promotion Corproation (DTPC), which stresses on the need to build cable cars from Adivaram to Wayanad through Lakaddi, building winches from Karapuzha dam to Edakal caves.The first phase has already got government clearance.

Though KA has a treatment centre in Mumbai, Delhi, Gurgaon and Noida, patients prefer to come to Kerala during monsoon, experience the rain and undertake the treatment, Vipin said. Allopathy doctors from Japan and Korea are undertaking Ayurvedic courses and Ayurvedic beauty at KA, he said. The Kandamkulathy Ayursoukhyam, an Ayurvedic resort opened two months ago at Thrissur, is offering specialised treatments for various ailments. There are also offering rejuvenation packages ranging from Rs 1250 to Rs 60,000. There are also detoxification packages and wellness and beauty care and migraine management and stress management packages.

Apple overtakes Microsoft as biggest tech company

ReuTeRs SEATTLE, MAY 27

Apple Inc shot past Microsoft Corp as the world's biggest tech company based on market value on Wednesday, the latest milestone in the resurgence of the maker of the iPhone, which nearly went out of business in the 1990s. Apple's shares rose as much 2.8 percent on Nasdaq on Wednesday, as Microsoft shares floundered, briefly pushing its market value above $229 billion, ahead of its longtime rival. Both stocks ended down after a late-day sell-off, but Apple emerged ahead with a market value of about $222 billion, compared with Microsoft's $219 billion, according to Reuters data. Apple shares closed down

0.4 percent at $244.11 on Nasdaq, while Microsoft fell 4 percent to a seven-month low of $25.01. Shares of Apple are worth more than 10 times what they were 10 years ago, as it has profited from revolutionizing

consumer electronics with its stylish, easy to use products such as the iPod, iPhone and MacBook laptops. The last time Apple had a higher market value than Microsoft was Dec. 19, 1989, according to Thomson Reuters Datastream. Microsoft, whose operating system runs on more than 90 percent of the world's personal

computers, has not been able to match growth rates from its hey-day 1990s. Its stock is down 20 percent from 10 years ago. Apple, which struggled for many years to get its products into the mainstream, resorted to a $150 million investment from the much larger Microsoft in 1997 in order to keep it afloat. At that time, Microsoft's market value was more than five times that of Apple. Microsoft still leads Apple in sales. In the latest quarter, Microsoft reported $14.5 billion in revenue compared with Apple's $13.5 billion. Cupertino, California-based Apple is now the secondlargest company on the Standard & Poor's 500 index by market value, behind energy behemoth Exxon Mobil Corp.

Pg16 GOA’S HEARTBEAT SOS from Goa’s Finding the Deeper Retired Seamen Meaning of Marriage “

Friday, 28 May, 2010

n of Ey ei ng th e in st itu tio se m ar ri ag e th ro ug h ro or coloured glasses you jaundiced eyes gets ead, nowhere. Marriage, inst ilial should be seen as a fam ays j o u r n e y, n o t a l w ing, smooth, but fulfill ing; rewarding and complet can it is a gift whose worth hen be understood only w uly the people in it tr he r. un de rs ta nd ea ch ot nal Here is a perso experience

T

BY AURIEL RIBEIRO SA he idea of being a part of something called the Marriage Encounter Weekend seemed interesting so when I got an invitation for it, I jumped at the opportunity. Of course, convincing my very reluctant husband and freeing my kids from school was another task altogether; but God seemed to be on my side, and I got my family ready for the trip. Eager to get going, we woke up early and tumbled into our van, the boys tired and sleepy, baby cranky, Glenn wary, Kirsten happy to bunk school and myself hopeful. Thus started our journey for the SVD Seminary, nestled in the hills of the sleepy village of Raia. We arrived as the first session was already underway. A Jesuit priest, Fr Leslie, was conducting the session along with a team couple from Benaulim, Vicente and Valene. He told us to introduce ourselves to the other four couples and say one good thing that we liked about our spouse. Then he gave us two questions to answer: “Why did I come here this weekend?” and “What do I hope to gain?” My husband said he had come because I had wanted it and he didn’t want to disappoint me. I said that I had heard about the weekend when my parents used to go for it in Mumbai but never got a chance to do it myself. When Valy and Anna, the organisers, said I could get the kids along, I jumped at the idea. What did we hope to gain? Well, I said that I hoped to gain insight into the mistakes I could be making in our marriage and to find a way to resolve them. I also hoped that my husband would do the same. Glenn hoped to get a better understanding of me and to build our marriage and family bond. And so we began the exciting journey into the steps of the Marriage

Encounter weekend. We had to write many love letters, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Glenn warmed up to the talks after the first day and he too enjoyed the letter-writing and dialogues we had in the privacy of our room, with the kids out of our hair for once. We were able to talk freely about our fears, hopes and disappointments in the marriage and to seek and give each other forgiveness. I cried a lot and Glenn tried to understand my fears. It was a momentous turning point for us when I finally felt he understood. I realised that I had been living a married-single lifestyle without even being aware of it and that it was affecting Glenn in a big way. We decided to make time to dialogue everyday and when asked to write on how we were going to share our couple-love, I wrote “By holding hands and being close together in public, by visiting others as a couple and, by opening the door for Glenn when he comes home tired from work and giving him his cup of tea while he relaxes in bed.” Glenn wrote: “Plan outing at least once a month with wife only, visit the sick and old with wife, and kiss my wife when I get up in the morning.” As we returned home, Glenn and I were happy to have gone for the weekend, sad to have said farewell to our new friends at the retreat and fearful that the loving atmosphere would vanish once we landed back home. The next day, we wrote our first love letters at home and discovered it wasn’t difficult at all. I even sent Glenn several love mobile messages through the day and dedicated a song ‘There’ll never be another you’ for us on the radio. Yes, we are on our way to sharing our feelings, not just with each other, but also with our kids at home.

Final Wave before the Showers Following the trends of many an international party destination, Goa too now celebrates the final wave – which is basically a final spate of parties – of 3 days and 3 nights – before closing for the season BY CLARON MAZARELLO he final wave had Rebel Royal featuring Dan Booth and Braund Reynolds (UK), Luke Brancaccio (Suicide Sports Club, UK) and Ryan Beck ruling the roost on day three at Mambo’s and Tito’s, day one kicked off at Café Del Mar, Baga with Goan hot favourites, DJ Ajit and Bangalore-based DJ Ivan while day two happened at Zanzibar at Baga featuring DJs Whosane, Lashkar and Brute Force (DJ Tuhin) doing their thing. While places with giant screens saw hardcore football fans making a beeline towards such venues this past Saturday due to the Champions League Finals, chances are these places will be struck again post June 11 for the FIFA World Cup. Kings Black Label photography contest will be held at Azur, Marriott on May 31 followed by ‘Nucleya’s’ bass heavy Bollywood album ‘Horn Ok Please’ that is scheduled to be launched on June 9, at the same venue. The show-stopper party this week will probably be at Lava Lounge, Vasco on May 29, where they will celebrate turning one year old, this coming Saturday. It would pay to go and witness The Pitch Black Project II, a wonderful dance act definitely worth watching at the Kala Academy on May 28. Rock in the south with a rain dance scheduled at Oceanique Resort, Colva. Also, Cape Town is scheduled to have a live gig that will go on throughout the rains, besides Steve, Kitu and Elvis doing some classy jazz at the Royal Goan Beach Club, Baga and the Art Escape musicians’ jam at Benaulim. Music to look out for this week would comprise ‘Imma’ by the Black Eyed Peas, a relatively new track on the Top Ten charts from their album, The END (Energy Never Dies), apart from ‘Just dance vs stereo love’ – another track by our very own Goan Ketan Lolienkar AKA DJ Soulshifter (his artist/production name). Let’s just hope these newer ones will be as groovy as the last one by the Black Eyed Peas called, ‘I Gotta Feeling’ – the song for every party. It’s another one of those numbers that never really gets old just like the concept of partying!

Choose your partners well. They have more influence over the future than you think. Your love (21 May – 21 Jun) is reaching a deeper level today, and those close to you can tell the difference! Things are going your way, and you may find that your energy is best spent focusing on romance.

When you get the great news you've been waiting for, call all your friends first. You are feeling more (20 Jan – 18 Feb) like a leader today, so whip your troops into shape! If it's just you and your friends, you may be bossier than usual, but the odds are good that they enjoy having the direction.

Family obligations hold a greater appeal than ever. Take pride in your heritage. Someone very (23 Aug – 22 Sep) close -- a favorite family member or maybe a close friend -needs you in a big way today. You're much better off giving them what they need rather than just trying to do things your way.

Pay close attention to the quiet ones today; they know something you should know. Look (19 Feb – 20 Mar) more closely at the way life is today -- you need to deal with reality just like animals in the wilderness do! You may want to examine everything to see if it's prey, or to determine if it's a threat.

With a paltry monthly payment of Rs 200 a month, Goa’s sailors’ bitter voyage of grief continues. Herald delves into their troubled waters to fish out problems galore. Will these pour souls ever be able to sight that silver lining?

BY CHRISTINA VIEGAS HERALD FEATURES hoy! Can anyone hear the weary pleas of the retired seafarers in Goa who are exhausted at having had to fight a “loosing battle” (in their words), over the last four to six years? All they ask for is what has been due to them for many decades: Money that was paid towards their welfare when they slogged the corridors and decks of ships at sea. Take one look at the elderly Mr Bonnie Rodrigues who has travelled all the way from the south of Goa to come enlighten us about his plight and it is hard not to stifle a sob. Feebly, he says, “The so-called Seaman’s Welfare Fund Society pays us a paltry Rs 200, that too collectively sent at six months interval which is often irregular. What can we get with Rs 200? All my colleagues are still groping in the dark and have lived their life in misery. These are the very men who had toiled on the oceans and were branded as ambassadors of one’s country by the former Defence Minister, the late Mr Krishna Menon.” Mr David Dias adds, “We agree that the funds might not be sufficient to pay 21,000 retired seafarers. But what about all the other money – the income from the seafarers’ training institute in Margao, the resorts built at Lonavla in our name, and the crores of rupees that was transferred from the International Transport Federation into a Trust?” Expounding further, Mr Menino Rebello elucidates, “Many of our seamen had fought in the first two World Wars. Their compensation was lying with the International Transport Federation for a long time. Unfortunately, as the Indian Government was not involved in our seafarers’ problems, the National Union of Seafarers of India (NUSI) got this money transferred into a Trust which they named as ITF Trust. The money ran to the tune of hundred crores at a minimum. This information was leaked out by a trustee who was sacked due to differences with the other members and later sued them legally. We have concrete documents as evidence to this. Besides this, the foreign shipping companies were paying 250 dollars towards welfare for each Indian seafarer on a monthly basis. Where has all this money gone? We didn’t receive any finance towards welfare, except our monthly wages. And yet today, we are left begging for justice.” The lament from many more retired seafarers is that the working committee and many more members of NUSI headquartered at Mumba,i rule the roost. They have utilised the funds in real estate. Mr Dias

A

enlightens, “They used our names to build resorts in Lonavala, yet we are never allowed to stay there. They have powerful connections, so no one can fight them. Many have tried in vain; they have spent months to years trying to get justice, but in the end they resigned to their pitiable fate.” Mr Dias is pained as he relates, “Churchill Alemao who was MP three years ago made me gather all the seafarers for meetings. I got around 2,000 signatures for him. Yet, at the meeting he was more interested in making his position powerful for the upcoming elections and only made false promises that we would get paid at Rs 3,000 per month.” When the PWD minister was contacted last August, he replied, “These things will take time. Even yesterday I spoke to Abdul Ghani, the general secretary of NUSI, he says they are still trying to work out something, perhaps in two months.” The seafarers bemoan the fact that over the last couple of years, the minister has only been making these promises. On contacting Mr Alemao now, he replied, “What can I do? I tried my very best; I tried very hard. But the committee of NUSI is saying there are no funds. So, how can payments be increased without funds? Now Sardinha has promised to take care of the seafarers problems, so let him do it. Let’s see what he does.” Get chatting with the vice president of NUSI, Mr Maruti Rathrekar and he enlightens, “There is no money in the Trust as we have been paying Rs 200 a month to the seafarers’ widows and have helped many seafarers with their health expenses up to the tune of two lakh per person for surgeries.” Quiz him on why the seafarers are not benefitting from the income gained through the resorts in Lonavla and he says, “Seafarers throughtout the country use the resorts but the Goans feel too shy to use them free of cost. So, what can we do?” Yet, the seamen in Goa vouch that the above statement is utter lies. With everyone in defensive mode, where does that leave our seafarers? Mr Rathrekar assures, “We are working out something with the ship owners where we can gather in some funds and increase the seafarers’ pensions.” And when is that going to happen? The reply is, “Hopefully, in six to eight months.” Various letters and meetings have all been futile. It is a shame to even discuss the paltry sum of Rs 200 paid irregularly to the seafarers. Most are forced to rely on the mercies of other family members. Jointly they plead, “Wonder, who would come to our rescue and give us our due? We are tired of fighting.”

DeWyze wins American Idol, Cowell bids Adieu

llinois paint shop assistant Lee DeWyze has won the ninth season of the American Idol talent contest. After overcoming his shyness, Lee went on to impress judges and viewers with his spirit and soulful voice, beating bluesy musician Crystal Bowersox. The 24-year-old Chicago native won the coveted title and a recording contract after a nationwide phone and text vote based on the contestants’ performances. “I have never been happier in my life,” said a stunned DeWyze, choking back tears after the result was announced at the climax of a two-hour finale that featured performances by Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson and Joe Cocker. Along with the title, the singer has also won a recording contract which will launch with his version of U2’s Beautiful Day. The finale also made the most of Simon Cowell’s last appearance as a judge. Cowell was treated to a film package recounting highlights from his career. “You have the honesty of Abe Lincoln and the charm of the guy who shot him,” comedian Dane Cook told the smiling British judge. “I didn’t think I was going to be this emotional and I genuinely am,” Cowell said on stage, turning to the audience. “Everybody asks who’s going to replace me, who going to be the next judge. The truth is, you guys are the judge of this show and you’ve done an incredible job over the years.” Barry and Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees and Alanis Morissette were also among the guest performers while Poison rocker and Celebrity Apprentice winner Bret Michaels played his first live gig since suffering a brain haemorrhage in April and a mini-stroke last week.DeWyze and the show’s high-wattage guests had to share the spotlight with both Cowell, whose departure was described by host Ryan Seacrest as the end of an era. Former Idol judge Paula Abdul, who quit last year after a contract-renewal dispute, got a standing ovation from the 7,000-strong audience at the Nokia Theatre when she appeared on stage to bid her old sparring partner a teary farewell: “My darling Simon. I’ve worked with a lot of people over the years...but none of them holds a candle to you, my friend. I have loved all the fun we had together. ‘American Idol’ is not gonna be the same without you. But as only I can tell you, it will go on,” she said. Every Idol winner since 2002 – from original champion Kelly Clarkson to 2009 winner Kris Allen – appeared on stage singing Together We Are One in tribute to Cowell’s part in making them stars.

‘Mhaka Ghoddlam Tem…’ explores the Intricacies of Relationships HERALD FEATURES fter having slogged in Dubai as a manager of a reputed company, Roland (Justin) reunites with his wife Livia (Evon) and daughter Prisca (Bushka) and returns with his elder brother Honda (Trinidade). Honda is a peculiar character who only believes in speaking the truth but is afraid to do so because of the fear of society. “Sot uloilear hanv vaitt, dekhun ogich ravlear koso?”, is a casual remark made by Honda every time he makes his presence felt on stage. Despite Roland’s deep trust and commitment to his wife, Livia gets herself involved with Turbo (Franky Gonsalves), an unemployed youth and spends all her husband’s earnings lavishly on him. Prisca, a student, is madly in love with Sunny (Cajie Pereira) without the consent of her parents. Roland returns to Dubai, leaving behind his brother Honda to take care of his wife and daughter in his absence. Soon after his trip abroad, Roland is forced to return home unexpectedly due to a theft in his company and Livia is found perplexed, thinking about the fate of her lover. On the other hand, due to the father’s bad image in Dubai, Sunny leaves Prisca at the request of his elder brother. One fine day, Livia’s extra-marital relationship is exposed by Honda and Roland drives his unfaithful wife out of the house. Unemployment and his wife’s infidelity forces Roland to resort to drinking. Meanwhile, Livia takes

BY JOEGOAUK he Holy Spirit Church in Margao recently celebrated its feast, the feast commonly known as ‘Purmentachem Fest’. Set almost exactly before the onset of the monsoons, the fair of the feast offers loads of items that people stock up on for the rainy season. One of the most popular items for the traditional fair is ‘Solye’ (dry Kite fish). Locals, including my mother, used to wait until the last day of the fair, which is the 7th day, where most items were sold at a lower price. Unfortunately, this trend didn’t last for long. Other items available at the fair are a wide range of salted and dried fish, ‘Binda Sol’, copper and brass vessels, furniture other household items. Since recent times, church fairs also include a number of stalls of clothes, footwear and plastic-ware, mostly run by out-of-state people.

Is Roland willing to accept his wife back home and save his family from disaster? What steps does Livia take? How the family reunites despite all odds in life is what the latter part of the play deals with. The plots wherein Turbo tries to blackmail Livia by video recording and continuous torture at his residence could have been avoided. Roland too appeared to be least perturbed when he could virtually see his hapless wife at the mercy of that reckless youth. Although a handful of songs rendered by Cajie Pereira, Bushka, A M Pacheco and Aurelio were quite impressive, more of that stuff would have ensured a lively entertainment. Overall, the audience was impressed with the play as several twists and turns kept the viewers glued to their seats till the end.

even a decent showing. Coach Carlos has a tough task as the boys have underperformed of late. Knowing that they need the three points, Churchill players will have to show that they mean business and play their normal game at full pace. Once the team shows a high degree of cohesion and the strikers display better and bigger coordination, it should not be a problem to find

the target. Manager Danzie Ferrao said, “Our only priority is to play well and win.” They have some problems as they will miss Rowilson Rodrigues (groin injury), Naoba Singh (ankle injury), Dhanachandra Singh and Raju Y (suspension) but they have capable substitutes. Churchill Brothers (40) need a victory to push Pune (42) down. “We are confident of notching a win and moving up but Air

Managers’ meeting at Fatorda for Duler match HERALD SPORTS REPORTER PANJIM, MAY 28

AIFF’s Match Commisssioner Ravi Shankar today set a new, unheard of precedent with the managers meeting of Salgaocar and Lajong clubs, who will play their final I-league match at Duler Stadium, Mapusa on Friday being held at Nehru Stadium, Fatorda. The managers meeting are normally held at the venue of the match as the Match Commisssioner besides verifying the colours of the uniforms of both teams is also expected to inspect the facilities like ground, dressing room, medical room, press room, bench for substitutes, security, etc. Lavinio Rebello, GFA’s coordinator in Mapusa, corroborated that the Match Commisssioner did not conduct the managers meeting at Duler Stadium today. The presence of local coordinator for the match is a must, and as such Lavinio was overlooked as an important member of the managers meeting. A source, however, pointed out that Ravi Shankar was a member of the 2-panel team that had inspected Duler Stadium earlier and had declared the venue as unfit for hosting the I-League matches. Obviously, this being the case and with AIFF now declaring the venue fit, courtesy Sunando Dhar, one can easily understand Ravi’s predicament.

Narvekar flays Education Dept on faulty Sports Policy HERALD SPORTS REPORTER PANJIM, MAY 27

The Education Department has failed to implement the Sports Policy in its true spirit, observed the Ad-Hoc Committee on Education, Sports and Information Technology. Dayanand Narvekar, MLA and president of Goa Cricket Association (GCA), who is the chairman of the committee, disclosed that at its meeting held on Wednesday it was observed that the Education Department in an earlier sitting had agreed to provide sports marks in addition to the condonation marks and the same would be added to the aggregate of a sportsperson. “From the marks certificates of sportsmen it is observed that sports marks are shown with an asteric and not added in the aggregate. As such, sports marks obtained by students have become ornamental, having no value for the career like admis-

Pg18

sions to professional colleges and schools,” Narvekar pointed out. “The SAG and DSYA have been flooded with complaints that the Sports Policy has not been applied correctly. In case of a footballer who plays for the State, sports marks were not given appropriately,” pointed out Narvekar. Narvekar has directed the Education Department to take up the matter immediately and implement the Sports Policy in real earnest so that students can

avail of marks to increase their percentage for further studies. Narvekar demanded that the Department should issue a circular to the concerned authorities or professional colleges to consider sports marks for admission purposes having equal value like normal marks. Some parents of students who appeared for CET exam, felt that the sports marks had no relevance at all for them. Dr Jorson Fernandes from Cuncolim disclosed that several parents who had approached him in Margao had pointed out that their children were not assigned any sports marks at the entrance examination for professional colleges. “It is immaterial whether you are a sportsperson or not as there are no marks allotted for excellence in sports when children opt for professional courses. It is unsporting, to say the least,” Dr Fernandes opined.

FRIENDLY

Penalties will put players on the spot REUTERS LONDON, MAY 27

Two men face each other, knowing that a single kick is about to decide their teams' fate as more than 700 million viewers watch: it must be a World Cup penalty shootout. There is more than a 50 percent chance that the winners of the World Cup in South Africa, which kicks off on June 11, will have to sur vive a penalty shootout en route. Some of the world's top sportsmen will inevitably buckle under the pressure, consigning millions of fans to despair and a lifetime of muttering ''what if...?'' Derided as a lottery by critics, the penalty shootout is unsurpassed as the ultimate test of nerve to decide tied games. Despite its flaws, it makes compulsive viewing. The split-second moment can make a player a hero, or forever scar an otherwise unblemished career. ''It affected me for years,'' said Roberto Baggio, the Italian forward who was one of the best players of the 1994 tournament until he missed in a shootout defeat to Brazil in the final. ''It was the worst moment of my career. I still dream about it. If I could erase a moment it would be that one.'' England's Stuart Pearce shared that sentiment after missing in a 1990 semi-final defeat to Germany. ''My world collapsed. The

walk back to the centre circle was a nightmare as the first rush of tears pricked my eyes,'' Pearce said years later. Four of the last five winners of the world's biggest sports event have had to come through a shootout test of nerve during one of their four knockout games, including Italy and Brazil in the final games of 2006 and 1994. Since penalties were introduced in 1982, to decide matches that remained drawn after extra time, there have been 20 shootouts in seven tournaments. Five players from each side take a kick and if the scores are level a ''sudden-death'' process starts. Fifty-six, or 30 per ent, of the 186 spot kicks have been missed. Germany have proved most clinical, winning all four shootouts they have been involved in. German defender Uli Stielike was the first man to miss in a shootout in Spain 28 years ago but his team still won the semifinal. Not one of his countrymen has missed since, giving German players a 94 percent success rate. In contrast, England have lost all three of their World Cup shootouts, missing half of the 14 kicks they have taken. The Swiss, Mexicans, Romanians and Dutchmen have yet to win a shootout, while this year's favourites, Spain, may need to improve their record of one win from three.

‘Not a lottery’ “The shootout is clearly not a lottery because the statistics show how many Germany have scored and how many England and the Netherlands score”. Coaches going to South Africa will spend much time on research, trying to improve their chances, backed up by sports science and psychology experts who have spent hundreds of hours studying the art. Sixty per cent of shootouts are won by the team going first, so the captain who wins the coin toss can grab a clear advantage before a ball is kicked. From there, it gets more technical, but experts say the key is controlling the pressure. ''Penalty shootouts are really a psychological game,'' said Geir Jordet, associate professor at the Norwegian School of Sport Science in Oslo who has studied shootouts extensively. ''It's not so much about technique or skill, it's about players choking. Shootouts are not decided by great shots or spectacular penalties. They are decided by the one, two or three players who fail because the pressure gets to them.'' Jordet's research has highlighted several reasons why some players and countries fail. English, Spanish, Italian and Dutch players, for example, rank high in terms of ''star'' status, having enjoyed club success and great popularity at home, which

piles on more pressure. His research has shown English players take kicks quicker than players from any other country, reflecting their desire to get them over as soon as possible. Germany's clinical approach -- the team are said to have a database of more than 10,000 penalties and goalkeeper Jens Lehmann was seen studying a crib sheet tucked into his sock during a quarter-final shootout four years ago -- is being copied by others anxious to know which way opposition goalkeepers tend to dive and which way players prefer to aim. In the run-up to this year's tournament, all the top teams will practise their technique from the penalty spot. ''You can't replicate the exact emotions you're going to have but, as Tiger Woods does with putting, you can practise a skill to give you more chance when the pressure is on,'' said Loughborough University's Pain. The English, Swiss, Dutch and Mexicans can at least hope that if tested this time they can reverse their fortunes. Italy did so in style four years ago -- beating France in the final after losing their three previous shootouts. Baggio may have helped to inspire that victory. After his miss in 1994 he stepped up again four years later to score, albeit in another defeat against France.

Valbuena lifts France

France…2

Costa Rica…1

REUTERS LONDON, MAY 27

New blood and a change of formation paid dividends for France as debutant Mathieu Valbuena netted the winner in a 2-1 World Cup warm-up win over Costa Rica. With 16 days until the start of the tournament in South Africa, the Netherlands also secured a morale-boosting win as Robin van Persie scored twice in a 2-1 victory over Mexico. France, playing in a 4-3-3 formation instead of the usual 4-2-3-1 under coach Raymond Domenech, produced some neat football but looked shaky at the back. Midfielder Carlos Hernandez

put Costa Rica ahead early but an own goal restored parity and Valbuena struck seven minutes from time. The Dutch, without a number of regular starters including Arjen Robben, Mark van Bommel and Wesley Sneijder, followed England's example by overcoming Mexico. Van Persie proved his worth as central striker with two fine volleys to give Mexico coach Javier Aguirre some thinking to do after another inconsistent performance, following their 3-1 defeat by England at Wembley. Javier Hernandez headed a consolation for the Mexicans 16 minutes from time.

PARIS -- Andy Roddick is into the third round of the French Open for the second year in a row. The sixth-seeded American beat 112th-ranked Blaz Kavcic of Slovenia 6-3, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 on Thursday in a match that started more than 4½ hours late because of rain. It was twice interrupted by showers. In other results, No. 25 Marcos Baghdatis rallied past Marcel Granollers 4-6, 6-1, 7-5, 6-2. Ana Ivanovic hit another low Thursday in her slide since winning the French Open two years ago, losing 6-3, 6-0 to 28th-seeded Alisa Kleybanova in the second round. Four other matches were completed, all on the women’s side. No. 11-seeded Li Na and No. 17 Francesca Schiavone won, while 39-year-old Kimiko Date Krumm lost to Jarmila Groth 6-0, 6-3. Date Krumm became the oldest woman since 1985 to reach the second round when she upset former No. 1 Dinara Safina, the runner-up in 2008 and 2009.

Sachin tweets and India responds

Trott strides to 175 as England make hay

AGENCIES LORDS, MAY 27

A simple message from Sachin Tendulkar on his twitter page is enough to raise Rs 1.25 crore in two weeks and the beneficiaries would be the children of the veteran batsman's project "Sachin's Crusade against Cancer in Children". "Sachin just tweeted once two weeks ago and overnight lakhs came in donations. Over Rs 125 lakhs have been collected," Dr P Jagannath of the "Crusade against Cancer Foundation" said at a press conference here today. "This is an astounding figure and is probably the highest that has been collected by a single celebrity in India for a single fund raising event," Dr Jagannath said, adding he had approached Tendulkar through his wife Anjali for the cause. "I approached Dr Anjali Tendulkar who is a paediatrician and known to me through some friends. She convinced Sachin for this cause," he said.

Jonathan Trott, fighting to preserve his place, anchored England's first innings on Thursday with a second consecutive home century on the opening day of the first Test against Bangladesh at Lord's. Trott came to the crease after only 26 balls when Alastair Cook was dismissed for seven. He was still there at the end of the day with 175 beside his name after nearly six hours at the crease. At the close, England were 362 for four after being asked to bat on a day which began under dark cloud cover and ended in sunshine, which had sapped any early life and lift from the pitch. Trott scored 119 in the second innings of his Test debut at the Oval last year, a century which helped England regain the Ashes and earned him a spot on England's two off-season tours.

After a promising start in his native South Africa, the runs dried up and he subsequently struggled against the Bangladesh spinners in a twomatch series. England's decision to rest their successful Twenty20 captain Paul Collingwood to aid his recovery from an injured shoulder gave Trott a reprieve. He took full advantage with some handsome drives, reaching his century with his 12th four, before he became becalmed for 60 balls during which he failed to find the boundary. Andrew Strauss fell 17 short of a fifth Test century on the home ground of his county Middlesex after adding 181 for the second wicket with Trott. Earlier, Bangladesh batsman Imrul Kayes was forced to leave the field after he was struck on the helmet at short-leg by a fierce pull from Morgan.

"If we win the World Cup, I'll get naked and run around the Obelisk in the centre of the city," Maradona was quoted as saying by reporters, according to AP. Maradona also revealed that he had to explain to Lionel Messi why the Barcelona star didn't play in the international friendly against Canada earlier this week. "If something would have happened to you in that match, I'd have been kicked. You can imagine where," said Maradona to his star player.

Out-of-favour Indian left-arm spinner Murali Kartik returned with magical figures of six for 61 to help his side Somerset beat Warwickshire by nine wickets in the County Division Championship at Taunton. Playing only his second championship match for Somerset, Kartik on Wednesday spun a web around Warwickshire batsmen in the second innings during his 29-over spell to bowl out the visitors for a lowly 207 on the penultimate day of the four-day match. Brief score: Somerset (290 & 45-1) bt Warwickshire (127 & 207) by 9 wkts.

No. 32-seeded Kateryna Bondarenko lost to Aleksandra Wozniak 6-4, 6-1. Na defeated Stephanie Cohen-Aloro 6-2, 62. Schiavone swept Sophie Ferguson 6-2, 6-2. Six singles matches were postponed, including those involving Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams, meaning they won’t play their second-round matches until at least the sixth day of the tournament. Nadal faces Horacio Zeballos, and Williams plays Julia Goerges. Sixteen doubles matches also were postponed. Those still scheduled to take the court Thursday included four-time champion Justine Henin, Maria Sharapova and Novak Djokovic.

Champions Dempo split points with Pune Dempo…1 Pune …1 HERALD CORRESPONDENT MARGAO, MAY 27

ONGC I-League champions Dempo Sports Club wound up their campaign in style with a 1-1 draw with Pune Football Club at Nehru Stadium, Fatorda on Thursday. Dempo, who were already crowned champions with a match to go, did not disappoint their vast legion of supporters today. Being crowned India kings for the third time in five years, the fans swamped the ground the moment they split points in an inconsequential match for them. The teams displayed an attacking brand of football and once the Dempo players settled into their rhythm skipper Anthony Pereira,

Peter Carvalho, Clifford Miranda and Climax Lawrence began to trouble the Pune defence. Midfielder Clifford Miranda stunned Pune with a rasping left footer from the edge of the box to put Dempo in front in the 15th minute. Pune goalkeeper Subrata Paul advanced to thwart danger, but the ball deflected off his hand and entered in. Dempo’s passing was immaculate, with their build up being solid to create openings. They dominated the major part and did everything right but found goal scoring a difficult proposition. Once midfielder Clifford Miranda was the culprit as he ballooned over after being put on the platter by Valeriano Rebello. A couple of minutes later, Pune’s Ivory Coast midfielder Douhou Pierre

blew away the easiest of chances as he failed to pounce on an Edmar Figueira assist. Pune went all out for the equalizer and their efforts were rewarded in the 18th minute when Izumi Arata picked up a through pass from Douhou Pierre and punished Dempo goalkeeper Abhijit Mondal with an adroit placement. Stunned by the equalizer, Dempo regrouped but were unlucky as they missed several chances. Clifford Miranda blasted wide in the 20th minute off Climax Lawrence. Later, Peter Carvalho’s right footer crashed into the crossbar. The Pune goalkeeper and a defender were beaten but Clifford made a mess of it. At the stroke of lemon break, Cliffton Gonsalves wasted a gilt-edged chance

off a flag kick floated by Anthony Pereira. Dempo started the second session in a rousing fashion but young Cliffton frittered away an easy scoring chance In the 75th minute, captain Anthony Pereira and Clifford Miranda came up in a good passing bout but Anthony was found wanting. At the other end , substitute junior international Jeje Lalpekhlua nearly found the match- winner but his snap shot from the left sailed over the crossbar. With this draw, Dempo finished atop with 54 points from 26 matches while Pune Football Club collected 42 points. It was unfortunate that no prize distribution function was held, much more so when there are doubts about the Super Cup match being held, what with

The Twenty20 World Cup debacle still fresh in mind, a newlook Indian team would look to test its bench strength when it faces Zimbabwe in the opening match of a triangular ODI series, also involving Sri Lanka, here tomorrow. With big names rested for the series, the tournament comes

as an opportunity for the youngsters to prove their worth at the international level, especially with the 50-over World Cup just over nine months away. It will also be a test of character for the young Suresh Raina, who will make his captaincy debut after as many as eight senior players including regular captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, were rested for the tour-

nament. But what might work in Raina's favour is that he will lead a bunch of young, fresh and fit players who are eager to perform at the international arena and be in the reckoning for a place in the Indian team. Raina has an aggressive deputy in Virat Kohli, who would be keen to prove his worth to the selectors after being ignored

Boxers Mary, Sarita in semis AGENCIES KAZAKHSTAN, MAY 27

Four-time World champion M C Mary Kom (46kg) and L Sarita Devi (51kg) are assured of at least a bronze medal each after easing into the semi-finals of the Asian Women's Boxing Championship in Astana, Kazakhstan. M a r y Ko m d e f e a t e d S r i Lanka's Anushka 6-3, while Sarita thrashed Ri Hyang Mi of North Korea 10-1 amid protests from the rival camp, which alleged unfair scoring. However, it was heartbreak for Mizoram boxer Venlal Duati (48kg), who lost to China's Luo Yujie. Duati was locked 1-1 with Yujie

after the regulation four rounds and the boxers' scores were the same in the count-back as well. The five-member judges' panel then stepped in and declared Yujie the better of the two, Indian Boxing Federation Secretary General Col P K Muralidharan Raja, who is in Astana as a technical delegate, said over phone. The diminutive Mary Kom, who is aiming to better the silver she won in the previous edition of the event, was the first from the Indian team to step into the ring on Wednesday. The 27-year-old took a 2-0 lead in the first round and

stretched it to 5-1 after the third. Anushka tried to claw back in the final two minutes but the effort proved too little too late. Sarita, a gold medallist in the last edition, was even more dominant as she out-punched Mi. With a 3-1 lead to start with, she dominated the proceedings but there was some drama after the bout as the Korean team lodged a protest against what they called unfair judging. India has a 11-strong presence at the event, where 16 countries are competing. India finished third, with three gold and two silver medals, in the last edition in Guwahati.

BCCI holds aces to Howard’s job UNI NEW DELHI, MAY 27

The BCCI will hold the aces in former Australian Prime Minister John Howard's nomination for the ICC vice-president as Zimbabwe and South Africa have lodged a strong protest against any such move. Australia and New Zealand jointly nominated Howard as their candidate, under a rotation system to become the vice-pres-

ident of the ICC. According to ICC rules, four votes are needed to block Howard's nomination for ICC vice-presidency, a post which will be vacant once Sharad Pawar takes over as president from David Morgan next month. Pawar and Morgan are expected to meet this weekend to discuss the issue over the nomination, but there are suggestions a fresh candidate might

be called for to end the impasse. Cricket South Africa (CSA) has taken up the matter in the strongest of manners, accusing current ICC president David Morgan of ignoring the sentiments of an overwhelming number of ICC directors who are opposed to Howard. While Cricket Australia and New Zeland Cricket remain firm on their stand, Lorgat claimed that no decision has been arrived yet.

for the Twenty20 World Cup. Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha and legspinner Amit Mishra also have a point to prove after the Twenty20 World Cup snub while Yusuf Pathan, Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik along with Raina will form the core of the Indian line-up during the series. Other rookies who will be looking to make a mark are off-spinner R Ashwin and aggressive wicket-keeper batsman Naman Ojha. However, an area which will be a matter of concern for Raina is the pace department. With the likes of Ashok Dinda, R Vinay Kumar, Pankaj Singh and Umesh Yadav, the Indian seam attack lacks experience and it remains to be seen how the quartet fairs in pressure situations. Incidentally, the Raina-led side has a fair idea about Zimbabwean conditions as players like Pankaj Singh, Pragyan and Rohit were part of the A team that toured the African country in 2007. India last sent a full side to Zimbabwe way back in 2005-06. On the other hand, the absence of so many international stars have irked the cashstrapped Zimbabwe Cricket which was banking on this series to revive the game here. With very little international cricket scheduled here, the triseries is also seen as Zimbabwe's last chance to test their abilities before the next year's World Cup.

The England and Wales Cricket Board confirmed reports of attempted match-fixing on Wednesday when it acknowledged that two players had reported attempted bribes by bookmakers. The ECB did not say whether either of the cases were the one reported on Wednesday by a British newspaper, but the ruling body's statement came only six days after the outgoing chief of the ICC's anti-corruption unit chief said the possibility of fixing still troubled the game. The ECB said that it passed on the players' allegations to the ICC anti-corruption unit and police. "ECB is pleased that the system of anonymous player reporting is working and ECB's board has reinforced the need to all players and officials to be vigilant concerning illegal approaches by bookmakers and others," the body said in the statement. The Daily Telegraph newspaper reported that a player with a decade of experience in the English county championship had told England's Professional Cricketers' Association about an attempted bribe from an Indian businessman.
