The growing menace costing NZ $444 m A new report by economist Shamubeel Eaqub has found cyber bullying costs the country $444 million a year. It's the first report that puts a financial figure on the social cost of being bullied, harassed and threatened online. The report - commissioned by Netsafe - has used overseas research along with a UMR survey of thousand people here. It said while the number of victims might be small the damage was huge and calculates the cost to family and friends of the unpaid hours spent dealing with the damage at $347m a year. The figure doesn't consider long-term effects on mental and physical health, along with lost productivity. Mr Eaqub said cyber bullies seemed to have particular targets. "The impact is much larger on younger people, on women, and on people of colour," he said.

The study found one in ten New Zealand adults have been bullied online, but it was much more common among teens and people in their twenties with almost half of 18- and 19-year olds suffering some kind of cyber abuse. Nearly a third of victims don't come forward, and the same kind of awareness campaign as in mental health was needed to let people know cyberbullying is "common, it happens, but also that there's help out there", Mr Eaqub said. Young people had been victims themselves or knew of others who had been. Angus said modern technology made it very easy. "Just through any social media platform - it is pretty easy to have any app on your phone that you can use it through, or do it," he said. On the other hand, Maddy had this advice to offer. "Most of the time you just grin and bear it, or you just end up blocking people, which is a good handy thing," she said. Mr Eaqub said

blocking people might not be that easy, especially if the victim saw them at school every day.



Jean Andrews is a school counsellor and also a spokesperson for the Counsellors' Association. She said complaints about cyber bullying make up a significant part of their workload, but students aren't getting the help they need.

"Often young people cannot access the help they need because it is only about relationships, whereas the school counsellor has to prioritise and deal with the highly at-risk people first," she said. Mr Eaqub said there were still a lot of unanswered questions. "What we want to do in the work in the future is around saying what is the real-life consequences in terms of truancy, or absence from school, the impact on graduation rates," he said. He said that was likely to significantly increase the cost of social harm well past the near half billiondollar figure in this report. -RNZ

Cover Story New global economic forecasts show importance of running surpluses, paying down debt The International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) latest global economic forecasts are a timely reminder of why the Coalition Government is running surpluses, sensibly managing debt and focussing on policies to support growth, Finance Minister Grant Robertson says. The IMF has upgraded its growth forecasts for New Zealand compared to April, closer to the Treasury’s forecasts. While this is welcome, the broader IMF World Economic Outlook released today also shows why we need to keep a close eye on international economic developments. “The global outlook shows a downward revision in global growth forecasts over the next two years. Global economic growth of 3.7 percent in 2018 and 2019 is down 0.2 percentage points each year compared to April,” Grant Robertson said. “The global growth downgrade is largely due to rising international trade tensions and disappointing global activity. It’s a timely reminder of why the Government is ensuring the books are in order and strong enough to protect the economy and New Zealanders from any rainy day

such as changes in the international economy. “The IMF has recognised New Zealand’s sound economic fundamentals, with forecasts for growth of around 3% in 2018 and 2019. The upgraded view of New Zealand’s economic outlook follows the IMF’s review of Budget 2018, which included growth-friendly policies like the R&D incentive, the Provincial Growth Fund, and record transport infrastructure investment.

the New Zealand Government’s financial position to remain better than peers including Australia, Canada, the UK, the US and the Euro area, while our debt will remain lower than these other advanced economies,” Grant Robertson said.

“While the IMF’s forecasts are slightly below the Treasury’s, they are strong compared to other advanced economies. The average forecast New Zealand growth rate over 2018 and 2019 is stronger than forecasts for Australia, the US, the Euro area, Japan, Canada and the UK,” Grant Robertson said. In a second report released today, the IMF said New Zealand’s fiscal outlook is positive, and that the Government is expected to continue running surpluses and controlling debt.

“The Government financial statements released yesterday confirmed our commitment to sound fiscal management. At the same time, we are making important investments including significantly increased funding of health, education, housing, family support and infrastructure. “It’s important to remember that the Government accounts are for the year ended 30 June 2018, and the better-than-expected surplus is in part due to one-off factors. Calls for ongoing increases in spending

“The IMF’s Fiscal Monitor used New Zealand as an example of good practice for fiscal management. The IMF expects

need to keep in mind that there first needs to be confidence that the better-thanexpected results will continue year after year, as opposed to just being a one-off. “Due to the IMF’s comments today on the rising risks to the global economy, it’s prudent that we wait until the Treasury releases its next set of forecasts in midDecember,” Grant Robertson said.

Community A colourful start of festive season and Heritage walk at Bharatiya Mandir

The oldest Hindu temple of New Zealand Bharatiya Mandir, once again added another feather in its already full hat. This year for the first time, Auckland Council had included the biggest community hub of Indians people in Auckland, Bharatiya Mandir, for their annual Heritage Week walk. A group of around 200 local kiwis, young and old, men and women and even some very young kids were part of those curious enthusiasts who thronged the temple on a beautiful Saturday afternoon on 6th October. Trustee chairperson of the Mandir committee Roshan Nauhria, welcomed the visitors and President Hemant Prashar gave them a brief about Mandir history, its functioning and that how in all these years, Mandir has become such an important place for Indian community, and not just a place of worship only. One of the devotees Ram Lingam gave did a presentation on Hindu Dharma-concept of Divinity, Avatars, why so many Avatars, why so many GODs, role of priests, role of Gurus and different paths to follow etc. The visitors were then spilt into several groups with Mandir volunteers acting as their guides took them around explaining them about the Mandir deities and Hindu rituals etc and answering questions being frequently asked by the

visitors. Visitors were also taken to the building one door away from temple to old Presbyterian church, which is now Mandir property. All the guests were very impressed to know about the services being provided by the Mandir to the wider Indian community, most of which are free to them. Later the visit concluded with a cup of tea and hot snacks and sweets served to all. The visitors seemed overwhelmed with the hospitality they were provided throughout their stay and some of them bidding good bye saying that they will be back some time soon. Later Navaratri festivities started on Wednesday 10th of October all over the world and Bharatiya Mandir was also the place of action. This year a very famous musical group of four from India, Sur Ganga group, is performing at the Mandir which is led by Mohan Bhai. Mohan bhai has performed previously also at Bharatiya Mandir. The Navaratri programme start from 10th October and will go until 19th of October. Garba songs and dance start every evening at 7:30 and finishes late in the night after 10:30. The Navaratri programme are being conducted by some temples as well such as Shirdi Sai Mandir in Onehunga and Sri Ram Mandir in Henderson.

“Aadhar” Not a Must for

Bank Accounts in India The Supreme Court of India on 26 September 2018 upheld the constitutional validity of Aadhar scheme but struck down some of its provisions like linking with bank accounts and mobile phones as per a PTI release. A clutch of petitions filed last year had challenged the Constitutional validity of the system on the grounds that it violates privacy. The Top Court in its verdict has said that “Aadhar is serving much bigger public interest and there is nothing in the Aadhar Act that violates right to Privacy of an Individual.” Aadhar means unique and it is better to be unique than the best. Unique means only one. Aadhaar is treated as unique and can’t be assigned to any other person," said Justice A.K. Sikri, reading out the judgment. Aadhaar is a unique 12-digit identification number issued to an individual by the Unique Identification Authority of India after storing their biometric data. The UIDAI uses IRIS and Fingerprint scans to get biometric information from applicants and keeps it in a database. Seeking Biometric details does not violate the right to privacy, said Justice Bhushan pronouncing the decision. Aadhar will now, not be needed for opening bank accounts and getting Mobile Sim cards, however it will remain mandatory for filing Income Tax returns in India as per a Times of India report. As such, Aadhar is not compulsory for NRIs but a lot of them have it, as this comes handy to them in India in many situations and for convenience in

availing host of services. It is particularly useful to Indian Pensioners, who are getting their past service Pensions from Banks in India, in submitting online Digital Life Certificate without going to India or somewhere else to get a Paper Certificate attested. As per a report in The Economic Times, State Bank of India’s Chairman Rajnish Kumar said that with this judgment of the Supreme Court, Aadhaar card will not be mandatory but customers' can voluntarily opt for submitting Aadhaar card for opening accounts. He further said, “Everybody will have to honor the Supreme Court's judgment, but I believe from services point of view Aadhar is a great facility’. It is very convenient to open a bank account using an Aadhaar card. Today, on our digital platform if a customer wants to open a bank account with Aadhaar , it can be opened within five minutes and the account also becomes operational immediately," He said 80-85 per cent of bank accounts are linked with Aadhaar.

Local Stories Air New Zealand – Singapore Airlines Alliance reauthorized The Government has signed off Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines’ strategic alliance for the next five years, Transport Minister Phil Twyford has announced. Phil Twyford said the decision will allow the airlines to continue to cooperate to bring more flights and destinations for passengers travelling to and from New Zealand. “The services the airlines provide through the alliance strengthens New Zealand’s ties with our close neighbours in South East Asia and with other emerging markets throughout Asia. “Reauthorisation of the alliance will result in more benefits to travellers. These benefits include a wider range of flight times, more seats and reciprocal frequent flyer schemes,” Phil Twyford said. Singapore has long been a hub for airline

services, connecting New Zealand with the rest of the world. The alliance strengthens this role and provides passengers with a range of connecting flights between New Zealand and Singapore on the airlines’ combined services. This authorisation applies until 28 March 2024. During this period, the airlines will need to continue to show that the alliance provides real benefits to consumers and that it has not had a negative impact on competition.

More details on airlines alliances • Alliances allow airlines to work together, to better serve the markets which they operate in. • Alliances can result in benefits to consumers, for example, better access to connecting flights, more choices

of routes, and the ability to earn and redeem frequent flyer points across the networks of all participating airlines. Alliances also have the potential to reduce costs for airlines, which in competitive markets, results in lower airfares for consumers.

More details on the Air New Zealand – Singapore alliance • The Air New Zealand - Singapore Airlines alliance allows the two airlines to cooperate on routes comprising a sector between NZ and Singapore. Cooperation on these routes includes code-sharing, pricing coordination and optimisation of connection times and joint marketing. The airlines also share

revenue on the NZ – Singapore sectors. • One of the main benefits of this alliance is that it provides for better connectivity for passengers travelling between NZ and Southeast East Asia, India and Europe. Under the alliance, the airlines effectively combine their networks. So passengers benefit from Air NZ’s greater access to regional New Zealand and Singapore’s greater international network from its hub in Singapore. • It is also likely that alliance has allowed the airlines to provide greater capacity (number of flights and seats) to/from NZ. This is a result of the mutual support the alliance offers the airlines.

Inland Revenue’s Tony Morris – let’s bust the myth about

robot tax investigators The use of automated algorithms is disrupting industries across the world and tax administration is certainly no exception. We at Inland Revenue have been using versions of this technology for years to make sense of large volumes of data and to pick out trends in information such as taxpayers’ filing and payment behaviour. The big difference these days is that the technology is performing these tasks much faster and is organising the data in such a way that allows us to make better decisions more efficiently. It’s a lot more effective than the ‘Ctrl F’ keyword search that many of our compliance officers will remember using in the past. What hasn’t changed is that real human beings control the process and are central to the technology being a success. So let’s quickly dissolve the myth about robot tax investigators busting tradies for not declaring cash jobs – it just doesn’t happen and never will. Our people will continue to make all the decisions about when to open a case for investigation and how to handle the data and insights that are produced. Here’s an insight into how it works in practice: a smart data search might tell us that a group of small businesses may be underreporting income, compared to other businesses of their kind. Our first assumption will be that we have a group of businesses that need some help to get their taxes right. It might be that they don’t know how to comply or perhaps they need some advice on keeping good business records.

useful information. Analytics technology gives us the ability to sort through that quickly and solve problems. As it turns out, we are using technology to help The next step is to try to help them out. It might not provide a great plot line for an action movie, but this is the approach we prefer – we just want to help customers get their taxes right from the start. Of course, we’ll take action if a customer doesn’t want to comply or it becomes evident that they haven’t, but this only happens after we exhaust all forms of assistance. Our analytics technology helps ensure the data is telling us what we need to know, which is how we can help a customer stay on top of their tax obligations and receive the social policy payments to which they are entitled. Data is only ever used for these purposes and there are strict rules surrounding how we treat it, especially when it’s passed on from other agencies. Algorithms are a part of any data analytics operation but at Inland Revenue they are used to help construct that story about the customer. Algorithms don’t make any decisions, only inform them. The ones IR uses are predictive in nature, programmed and checked by real people and the privacy of taxpayer information is always paramount. The information we glean from analytics technology helps us make targeted interventions, which are designed to prevent the customer from running into further problems. A big part of modern-day tax administration is about turning the huge volume of data that comes to us digitally every day into

customers far more often than we use it to make a case for auditing them. Tony Morris is a customer segment leader at Inland Revenue.

Politics A little ignorance, no bliss for

NZ People’s Party New Zealand’s newest political party which was started only in October 2015 has found itself in a legal battle due to, what it’s President describes it as, a rookie mistake. Police charged New Zealand People’s Party general secretary Mr Anil Sharma for failing to declare the Electoral Commission, donations of over $ 30,000 in the stipulated time frame. The charges were filed in the Auckland District Court last Friday by the Police against Mr Anil Sharma for failing to file the return in time. As per the Electoral Commission Act, any donations of $30,000 or above must be declared within 10 working days with the Electoral Commission. The Indian News contacted Mr Anil Sharma to know about the goof-up and he said there is nothing to declare or hide, as we are a new party and were not very well versed with the rules

of declaring donations in 10 working days’ time. It was later all shown in the annual return filed with the Electoral Commission. The charges were filed in the Auckland District Court last Friday, while the case will be heard again later this month. The law requires a party secretary to file a return for every party donation exceeding $30,000, including when aggregated with all previous donations from the donor in the past 12 months. A return must be filed within 10 working days of the donation being received by the party secretary, the act requires. We later spoke to the NZ Peoples Party President Mr Roshan Nauhria and he was very composed in his reply saying it is just a rookie mistake and its not a serious offence. It is just that the return was filed late and each and every donation is shown there. All the money was donated by him only to the Party, through proper Bank transactions with

Politics Is government making opposition’s job tough ? One of the most important things a political party can do in Opposition is take a good look at its policies and plan for New Zealand. It’s a time to look at what worked and what can be done better.

170-odd reviews and working groups so far, the stagnation and lack of certainty shows what happens when you’re not. We have a thorough process underway and we want to make sure you understand it.

After nine years in Government we’re doing exactly that.

This year is about listening. We want to hear from you - parents and pupils, families and farmers, businesses and communities.

We had some real successes in the Beehive. Under our economic plan New Zealand was among the fastest growing economies in the developed world, we were creating 10,000 new jobs a month and Maori and Pasifika were achieving more than ever before in education.

That’s why we’ve kicked off our ‘Have Your Say’ campaign to get the views of different people around the country. We’ve started with small businesses. We know small businesses are the engine room of our economy and we want to hear from them what we can do to help them succeed. They know their businesses better than we do and 2,600 people have responded so far.

We should be building on those successes. But there were areas where we could have done better, and we need to learn those lessons and improve our approach.

We’ll be looking at several other important areas including rural New Zealand and seniors.

So, we’re going to take this time in Opposition to refresh ourselves and our ideas - running the ruler over our existing policies and proposing new ones for 2020.

But the ‘Have Your Say’ campaign is just part of it. Every day when our MPs are at Parliament we are meeting to discuss

Should we earn the right to govern in 2020, we’ll be ready. This Government’s

ideas and put forward proposals. We have MPs focused on everything from social issues, law and order, the economy through to health and education. Our MPs are coming up with the ideas to improve the lives of Kiwis.

All that’s on top of holding this Government to account. When we believe the Government is doing things that will harm New Zealanders we will oppose it, it might seem like we’re being negative - we see it as being protective.

And when we’re not at Parliament all 56 of us are getting around the country and hearing from New Zealanders.

Every day we are working to come up with the policies and plans to improve the lives of New Zealanders. As Simon Bridges has said, we will continue to be the hardest working Opposition New Zealand has ever seen. And we will be ready to lead New Zealand should we earn the right to govern again in 2020.

Next year we’ll put our thoughts out in discussion documents, so people can respond to our proposals and finally, we’ll set out our concrete plans for New Zealand’s future in the lead-up to the 2020 election. We also have 45 Bills in the Ballot at Parliament. Those are 45 proposals from National MPs ranging from efforts to hold people to account for a coward’s punch, to helping more children learn a second language and allowing parents to take parental leave together. We’ve already had some legislation passed, including giving more financial support to foster children. And where we agree we’re working with the Government on important issues including climate change and child poverty.

India News Relation with Russia top priority: PM Modi

Russian President Vladimir Putin, who was on a two-day state visit to India, left for Moscow on Friday evening. Putin visited India to attend the 19th India-Russia bilateral annual summit. During his visit, India and Russia signed several agreements on Friday including the much-awaited agreement for the purchase of five S-400 Triumph air defence missile systems. The two sides also signed a civil nuclear agreement that will pave way for new nuclear power projects of Russian design in India, and collaboration in third countries. India and Russia also signed eight agreements that ranged from space cooperation to nuclear and transport sector. Russia expressed its support for India's membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group. Stating that India gives top priority to its relation with Russia, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that the relationship between both countries is an important factor for global peace and stability.

Briefing the media, the Prime Minister said, "India gives top priority to its relations with Russia. Our relationships in this world have become more relevant. Our Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership has consistently received new energy and direction from the continuous series of nineteen summits. And our cooperation on global affairs has got new meaning and motives. The relationship between India and Russia is an important factor for global peace and stability and appreciated each other's respective roles as major powers with common responsibilities for maintaining global peace and stability." Recalling the informal summit held between India and Russia in Sochi earlier this year, the Prime Minister said, "We are welcoming you (Russian President Vladimir Putin) as President of a country with whom we have unique relations. You have made invaluable personal contribution for these relationships. The memories of the informal summit held in Sochi by President Putin are fresh in my mind."

Centre working towards welfare of farmers: Modi Unveiling a 64-foot-tall statue of Sir Chhotu Ramon Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the central government is making all efforts for the welfare of farmers, taking a cue from the peasant leader. "Sir Chhotu Ram was one of those social reformers in the country who played an important role in the formation of India. He made certain laws for the benefit of farmers which are relevant even today. Just like him, the central government is constantly working towards the welfare of the farmers," Prime Minister Modi said while addressing a rally here. "Everyone has the right to know about the person who did so much for the country. It is hard to understand why a personality like him was restricted to just one area. This did not affect the stature of Chaudhry sahab, but many generations have got deprived of taking a lesson from his life," the Prime Minister added while eulogising Sir Chhotu Ram. Sir Chhotu Ram "always opposed the mindset of the Indian society towards girl child," said Prime Minister

Modi adding, "That is why despite all the pressures of society he stood firmly with his daughters." Meanwhile, Prime Minister Modi also laid the foundation stone of a Rail Coach Refurbishing and Rehabilitation factory in Sonipat. "This Rail Coach factory is not just restricted to Sonipat. It will create job opportunities for the youth of Haryana," Prime Minister Modi emphasised.

International News Nikki Haley won't run Three recipients

for President in 2020

named for Nobel Prize in Physics

Following the announcement of her resignation, United States ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said that she will not be running for President in 2020.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences on Tuesday announced that the Nobel Prize in Physics, 2018, will be shared among three scientists, one each from United States of America (USA), Canada and France, for "groundbreaking inventions in the field of laser physics". While one half of the prize money, 9 million Swedish Krona, will go to Arthur Ashkin, the other half will be jointly shared by Gerard Mourou and Donna Strickland. Arthur Ashkin from Bell Laboratories, USA, was lauded for his invention of optical tweezers that grab particles, atoms, viruses and other living cells with their laser beam fingers. This new tool paved the way to use radiation pressure of light to move physical objects. Meanwhile, Gerard Mourou from École Polytechnique, France, and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA together with Donna Strickland from the University of Waterloo, Canada were appreciated for their method of generating high-intensity, ultra-short optical pulses. Donna Strickland is the third woman to win a Nobel Prize in Physics. It is after 55 years that a woman has won the coveted honour as Maria Goeppert Mayer shared accolade in 1963 prize for discoveries about the nucleus of atoms. Elaborating about the contribution of the recipients to the field of Physics, the

"I will not be running for the office in 2020. I will be campaigning for Trump," Haley said. A former governor of South Carolina, Haley was seen as the possible candidate for the 2020 presidential elections. Earlier today, US President Donald Trump accepted Haley's resignation and revealed that she will be putting down her papers at the end of this year. Calling Haley "special", Trump addressed the media from the Oval office and said that she had asked for "some time off at the end of the two-year term". "We hate to lose you. She will be leaving at the end of this year," Trump said.

The US president also said that he will name Haley's successor within the next few weeks. Meanwhile, appearing beside Trump in the Oval Office, Haley recalled her experience in the Trump administration and said it was 'the time of my life'. "My goal is to make sure everything is in place for the next ambassador. This is a good day in US," she said. Haley was confirmed as UN Ambassador four days after the US President was inaugurated in January 2017.

Academy's press release read, "Gerard Mourou and Donna Strickland paved the way towards the shortest and most intense laser pulses ever created by mankind. Their revolutionary article was published in 1985 and was the foundation of Strickland's doctoral thesis." Arthur Ashkin was born 1922 in New York and did his PhD from Cornell University in 1952. Gerard Mourou and Donna Strickland were born in Albertville, France and Guelph, Canada, respectively. Mourou did his PhD in 1973 whereas Strickland was awarded PhD from the University of Rochester in 1989. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, founded in 1739, is an independent organisation whose overall objective is to promote scientists and strengthen their influence in society. The Academy takes special responsibility for the natural sciences and mathematics, but endeavours to promote the exchange of ideas between various disciplines.

Business Tech India a huge opportunity for New Zealand companies

It is not too late for New Zealand companies to be a part India’s runaway technological revolution. This was the view of two speakers at the third Reimagining India New Zealand Relationship event “Global Trade and Economic Challenges for New Zealand and India”, held on 24 September 2018, by New Zealand India Trade Alliance. Mr. Som Mittal, former President of NASSCOM, the flagship industry association for India’s 154-billiondollar IT industry, outlined the Tech Opportunity in India. He highlighted the five key consumer driven sectors that drive growth in India; infrastructure, technology, financial services, automotive and healthcare sectors. Mr Mittal, who is also the NZTE India Beachhead Advisor, said there has been a surge in the Indian middle class, which by 2022 will be the largest segment of the population. By the year 2025, India’s contribution to global middle-class consumption will be at par with that of China, overtaking both China and India by 2027. India is connected and will be even more

connected. Currently there are 465M internet users in India, this will increase to 750M by 2021. There are currently 300M smartphone users, doubling to 600M by 2021. By 2021 average data consumption is expected to rise from 4GB/MTh per user to 8GB/MTh.This rapid digital adoption in India is the driving growth for devices, hardware and software solutions. 8% of India’s total GDP contribution is now Tech Sector based, this, according to Som Mittal presents a huge opportunity for New Zealand tech companies. Mr Mittal said a vibrant start-up ecosystem has also emerged under the Modi Government’s “Start-Up India” programme, with around 5200 tech start-ups in India in 2017, and 700 of those classed as advanced tech startups. Mr Mittal sees this sector as an easy opportunity for New Zealand companies to partner with India. Mr. Mittal said the ease of doing business emphasis, and major structural reforms India has undergone in the recent past has made the Indian economy truly global. Kiwi companies need to embrace the idea of “selling WITH India instead of selling

BY India”. India’s High Commissioner to New Zealand, his Excellency Mr. Sanjiv Kohli, lauded NZITA for their excellent work towards developing healthier trade relations between NZ and India. He said the Indian economy is undergoing a paradigm shift, with most of the economy being driven by people in below the age of 30. This trend is likely to continue, with India is forecast to have a market with a very young consumer



base in the next 20 years. Mr Kohli said New Zealand businesses should take the opportunity to position themselves in India and harness the varied opportunities presented by this young, ambitious and consumer-oriented market. Both speakers stressed on the need to build two-way relationships and embrace, learn and share knowledge and expertise together.

Business More Listings, New Homes, and an Affordable Market Just in Time for Summer The market is heating up in anticipation for summer with reports revealing an increase in listings, a boom in new houses as well as easier entry points for first home buyers. Here’s what you need to know:

Property Market Warms Up as Summer Approaches It seems the season depression that hung over the local housing market is beginning to lift up with spring as the latest Quotable Value data reveals that the last month saw a surge in residential property listings throughout the nation. In Auckland property value growth across the region has increased by 0.8 per cent year on year, despite a 0.7 per cent drop in the last quarter, with the average value in the city has now reached $1,047,415. This surge and steady increase can be credited to investors and firsttime buyers snapping up properties that lie on the outskirts of the city centers. Barfoot and Thomson reported that

the New residential real estate listings in Auckland were 20 per cent higher in September this year than a year ago with prices remaining stable across the board. Some believe the boost has also been a result of many trying to sell their properties to overseas investors before the foreign buyer ban comes into effect, but that has been debated by experts who believe that trend is only unique to sensitive land properties and not the general market. As we get closer to summer it will be highly intriguing to see if this trend continues.

New Auckland Properties Boom

This number beats the previous annual record of 12,937 which was recorded in June 2004. The new houses consented have been largely in the outer southern and northern suburbs where new developments have been growing at record speeds, and the cheaper cost of land outside of the city center. The Kiwi Build scheme would have also helped these numbers with the schemes push for new affordable homes for first time buyers. But largely it has been a response to the continuing population growth which has heavily impacted the supply and demand of houses in the region.

Statistics New Zealand has revealed that the number of new homes being consented in Auckland has hit a record high, with 12,959 new dwellings consented by August this year – up 26 percent compared to last year. In August alone, 1298 new homes were consented in the region, which was the sixth month in a row that they have exceeded 1000.

Fortunes in Favour for First Home Buyers The end of winter has brought with it the news that the housing market has seen a considerable increase from first-time buyers entering the market according to a new Home Loan Affordability Report. The report reveals the improvement is due in part to slightly softer lower quartile house prices overall, falling interest rates and slowly rising wages. This is good news for first home buyers looking to enter the market and experts predict with new listing and no change in interest rates on the horizon that this trend may very well continue.

Editorial Reducing the cost to the tenants, at the cost of landlords The Social Service and Community Committee submitted its report on its findings on 3rd October in Parliament on The Residential Tenancies (Prohibiting Letting Fees) Amendment Bill, which aims to reduce costs for tenants by banning letting fees. The Social Services and Community Committee examined the Residential Tenancies (Prohibiting Letting Fees) Amendment Bill and recommended by majority that it be passed with the amendments it made. As about the bill, introduced Under the Residential Tenancies Act 1986, letting agents and solicitors can charge letting fees to tenants to cover the costs of setting up or assigning a tenancy. The Act does not specify the maximum amount that may be charged. However, letting fees are typically charged as one week’s rent plus GST, and differ across the country. This practice results in the letting fee not accurately reflecting the agent’s actual costs. The bill aims to ensure that the costs associated with letting a rental property are met by the landlord, rather than the tenant. It also seeks to reduce the upfront costs faced by some tenants when renting a property. To achieve its aim, the bill would amend the Residential Tenancies Act to prohibit the agents or landlords charging of letting fees, or any other fee charged to a tenant, in respect of charges for services provided in relation to a tenancy. The bill would make it an unlawful act to charge a tenant a letting fee, with a maximum level of exemplary damages set at $1,000. Landlords or their agents could still seek reimbursement from a tenant for expenses reasonably incurred because of a tenant assigning, subletting, or parting with possession of their interest in a tenancy. The Minister of Housing and Urban Development Phil Twyford says as half of the New Zealanders are renters so it unfair on part of agents or landlords charging renters any letting fees. The committee has recommended amending the commencement date to 12 December 2018. As committee observed that tenancy turnover around in New Zealand is highest between November and February. So, this amendment would help to maximise the reduction in costs for tenants who sign up for new tenancies over the peak period. The committee has also noted that there are no regulations covering letting agents, including property managers. So, the committee has argued the Government to consider introducing a regulatory regime for this industry. Committee also took serious note of property managers checking potential tenants’ bank statements and that nothing in the Act prohibits this practice. The bill would prohibit a landlord or his agent from charging a letting fee and aims to ensure all costs are met by the landlord. However, the bill fails to recognise that the cost will have to be passed on to the tenants by way of increased rent. This was confirmed by some submitters. The unintended consequences could be that landlords charge more weekly rental than they otherwise would and/or that landlords decide to quit the residential rental market and either sell, or turn to long term Airbnb for the property, thereby avoiding all obligations of the Residential Tenancies Act. An alternative is to make letting fees more transparent so that an actual fee for service could be charged. The bill fails to consider the cumulative effects of other legislation that will impose further costs on landlords—for example the Healthy Homes Guarantee Act 2017. The committee though has summitted its recommendations and amendment to the government but unfortunately the participation of a very low number of the interested groups and individuals is not a true reflection of the situation. - Yugal Parashar

It’s time to rejoice, sing and dance-its

"Navaratri" Navratri is a Hindu festival of worship and dance. The word Navaratri literally means nine nights in Sanskrit; Nava meaning nine and Ratri meaning nights. During these nine nights and ten days, nine forms of Shakti or Devi-the female divinity is worshiped. Goddess Durga represents Shakti or female divine energy and purity. It is believed that Durga fought a nine days battle with demon Mahishasura, at the end of which she was victorious, symbolising good over evil. During Navaratri, Goddess Durga is worshiped and honoured in her nine forms and each form has particular mantra for meditation. Although there are five festivals with the name Navaratri, the fall celebration of Sharada Navaratri is the largest and is, therefore, known simply as Navaratri. The Nine nights festival of Navaratri beginson the first day of Ashwin of the bright fortnight. The festival comes to an end on the tenth day of Vijaya Dashmi or Dussehra, when the idols of the Goddess Shakti are immersed in the sea or river. Dussehra meaning ‘ten days’ becomes Dasara in popular parlance. Hence, Navaratri, the nine days festival becomes ten days festival with the addition of last day, Vijayadashami which is its culmination. On all these ten days, the various forms of Maa Durga are worshiped with fervour and devotion. The nine nights are dedicated to the three main Goddesses of HinduismParvati, Lakshmi and Sarswati. Navaratri is separated into sets of three days. First three days of Navaratri are dedicated to Goddess Durga, the Goddess of Power and Energy. The next

three days of Navaratri are dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth and prosperity. The final three days belong to Goddess Sarswati who is worshiped to acquire the spiritual knowledge and wisdom. Goddess Durga is also worshiped under nine different names for the nine days of Navaratri. Every day, she assumes a new character, a new look and a new duty. These nine forms of manifestation are called -Shailputri, Brahmachartini, Kushmamda, Skandamaata, Kaatyayani, Kaalratri, Mahagauri, and Siddhiraatri. For the initial six days Puja celebration are normally limited to home. The celebration acquires a festive form since the seventh day when the festivities of Navaratri surround the atmosphere. With the changing times, forms of celebrating festivals are also changing. In various parts of India, Navaratri is celebrated with much fervour and gaiety. Many people fast for these nine days of festival to seek Maa Durga’s blessings and worship morning and evening by singing the religious and devotional songs. As the times have changed now, so these festivities have come out of the periphery of household and the singing and dancing is now done in temple and other community places. People dress up in their best of fineries for the occasion and dance in front of the Goddess to please her. Though the dance can be different in different parts in India for this occasion but it’s mainly the very popular folk dance of Gujrat state of India, called Garba, which is the most popular among all and now almost symbolic with the Navaratri celebration.

Spirituality The festival of Navratri is a time for self-referral and getting back to the Source. - Sri Sri Ravishankar ji During this time of transformation, nature sheds the old and gets rejuvenated. According to Vedic sciences, matter reverts to its original form to recreate itself again and again. The creation is cyclical, not linear; everything is recycled by nature – a continuous process of rejuvenation. The human mind, however, lags behind in this routine cycle of creation. The Mother Divine is recognized not just as the brilliance of intellect (buddhi), but also the confusion (bhranti); she is not just abundance (lakshmi), she is also hunger (shudha) and thirst (trishna). Realizing this aspect of the Mother Divine in the entire creation, leads one to a deep state of Samadhi. Through wisdom, devotion and nishkama karma, one can attain advaita siddhi or perfection in the non-dual consciousness. Though Navratri is celebrated as the victory of good over evil, the actual fight is not between good and evil. From the Vedantic point of view, the victory is of the absolute reality over the apparent duality. In the words of Ashtavakra, it is the poor wave which tries to keep its identity separate from the ocean, but to no avail.

The Inward Journey Nullifies Our Negative Karmas. Navratri is a celebration of the spirit or prana which alone can destroy mahishasura (inertia), shumbhanishumbha (pride and shame) and madhu-kaitabh (extreme forms of craving and aversion). They are completely opposites, yet complementary. Inertia, deeply ingrained negativities and obsessions (raktabeejasura), unreasonable logics (chanda-munda) and blurred vision (dhoomralochan) can be overcome only by raising the level of prana and shakti, the life-force energy. The seeker gets back to the true Source through fasting, prayer, silence and meditation. Night is also called ratri because it brings rejuvenation. It gives relief at the three levels of our existence – physical, subtle and causal. While fasting detoxifies the body, silence purifies the speech and brings rest to the chattering mind, and meditation takes one deep into one’s own being.

The Nine Days of Navratri Though our life is governed by the three gunas, we seldom recognize and

reflect on them. The first three days of Navratri are attributed to tamo guna(intertia), the next three days to rajo guna(activity) and the last three days to sattva guna(tranquility). Our consciousness sails through the tamo and rajo gunas and blossoms in the sattva guna on the last three days. The essence of this knowledge is honored by celebrating the tenth day as Vijaydashmi. Hence, special pujas honoring all aspects of life and nature are performed during this time. So, please enjoy the Navaratri festival with your family and friend and take this as an opportunity to rejuvenate yourself and give a new direction to your life. - Rashmi Bhatia

Legal Rent Control - the most efficient technique to destroy a

city - except for bombing This 1972 quote of renowned Swedish economist Assar Lindbeck applies squarely to Labour’s proposed “reform” of the Residential Tenancies Act, 1986(“RTA”). The key changes proposed are: 1) 90-Day No-Cause termination notices will no longer be valid, tenancies could be ended only for breach by tenant (such as nonpayment of rent, damage to property causing nuisance etc.) and the Tenancy Tribunal upholding the validity of the reasons, fixed term tenancies will virtually end;, tenancies cannot be terminated on a 42 day notice even on sale of a house unless new purchaser can establish valid reason to end tenancy; tenants allowed to make minor changes without landlord consent; tenants having right to keep pets without landlord consent; limiting rent increases to one per year ( in place of the present 6 monthly) and that too subject Tenancy Tribunal review and increasing penalties on landlords and making landlords subject to audits by MBIE. The Discussion Document issued by the MBIE is available at https://www.hud. Reform-of-Residential-Tenancies-Act-1986discussion-document.pdf. The “reform” is merely an extension of the Labour party’s pandering to its perceived vote bank of the “poor tenants” and in utter disregard

of proven economic theory and empirical evidence from numerous other countries, including research by Nobel laureates such as Gunnar Myrdal ( who said “Rent control has in certain Western countries constituted, maybe, the worst example of poor planning by governments lacking courage and vision”) and Milton Freidman, that this type of rent controls decrease the quantity and quality of housing, leads to an increase in rents, lead to a temporary decrease in value of houses (but by not so much that houses will suddenly become

measures, which makes matters worst for the housing market. Economists have shown that rent control diverts new investment, which would otherwise have gone to rental housing, toward investments giving better returns. They have demonstrated that it leads to housing deterioration, fewer repairs, and less maintenance. The economic reasons are straightforward. If a person has, say, a million dollars which he could invest in any industry. Most other businesses operate in a virtually free market without excessive

As the initial rent controls do not work in the manner the Government hopes (against hope!) that they will, the knee jerk response then is more and more rent control

controls or taxes but if he was to invest in rental housing, he would be subject to the whims of the Tenancy Tribunal and would be at risk of losing control over the property, acquired by investing his life savings and taking a huge mortgage risk. It is obvious that most of us would thus stay away from the rental market. Those of us who are already in the rental market, would try and get out by selling the rental houses, but not at a distress price and those who hold on to the houses, will increase the rents ( to cover for increased risk and compliance) and will also get extremely fussy about the quality of the tenants. Low quality tenants will not be entertained, even at the cost of increased vacancy periods. This reasoning will apply to all investors, present and potential with the result that new investment in housing will shrink, compounding the already existing. housing shortage in NZ. So, rather than incentivising investors to invest in rental housing, the Government is scaring them away! Renowned economists, including Nobel laureate Milton Freidman, are unanimous in their conclusion that rent control reduces the quality and quantity of housing stock, discourages

rental housing construction, reduces maintenance, erodes the tax base, shifts the burden to homeowners, increase racial discrimination, cuts labour mobility, and increases housing costs. Rent Control: Myths and Realities, Walter Block and Edgar Olsen, eds. (Vancouver: The Fraser Institute, 1981) is an excellent compilation of research by renowned economists which shows the ill effects of rent control, which the government seems to have totally ignored. The foundation of the Government’s proposal is the BRANZ NZ Rental Sector Report 2017, which is based on a small sample size of 1099 tenants, 406 landlords (Phase 2) and 86 tenants, 48 landlords (Phase 3), which can by no means be considered representative. 2.5 times tenants as compared to landlords being surveyed shows that the was bias but even then, this Report concludes at page 101 “the tenants and landlords in this study generally reported, in both the CATI surveys and the follow-up interviews, reasonably satisfactory or good renting experiences” (emphasis supplied). So where is the need for “reform”? Why is the Government bent upon killing the rental market and taking away the source of livelihood and of retirement savings for most landlords? Well, the only reason appears to be the Labour party wanting to appear to be doing something for its vote bank! The question is – should the Government work for the benefit of the country or the Party in power? The irony is that the measures being proposed will cause the most damage to the “low quality “ tenant-the very group that is being targeted to benefit from the proposed “ reform” Landlords and tenants should be able to see through the selfish goals of the Labour party and realize what havoc such changes would cause and should send in their protests by emailing RTAreform@mbie. .

Technology Beware the viral Facebook hoax that’s tricking people into thinking their account was hacked Over the weekend, you might have seen a wave of panicked friends in your Facebook news feeds posting warnings: Their accounts were hacked; don’t accept friend requests that appear to be from them. Or maybe you received a private message warning you that your account had been compromised. The warning spread in the form of a message, sent from a friend or “friend.” The message claims that the sender received a suspicious friend request from you, and that the proper way to address this disturbing news is to immediately share the message they sent to you with all your friends.

It reads something like this: “Hi....I actually got another friend request from you which I ignored so you may want to check your account. Hold your finger on the message until the forward button appears...then hit forward and all the people you want to forward too....I had to do the people individually. PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT A NEW friendship FROM ME AT THIS TIME.” Should you be worried? Well, we have some good news and bad news. The good news is: Chances are, you were not hacked if you received this message, nor are you being impersonated on

Facebook, and no fraudulent friend requests got sent. The whole thing is a viral hoax. The bad news is: People are falling for yet another copy/paste hoax on Facebook, a website with a long history of them. A Facebook spokesperson said in an emailed statement that the company had “heard that some people are seeing posts or messages about accounts being cloned on Facebook,” messages that they likened to a chain letter or email. Although account cloning is a real thing, the volume of messages spreading across Facebook don’t reflect any actual spike in cloned accounts on the service.

Facebook also placed a message at the top of the news feed explaining what happened to the 50 million users whose information was compromised. That message was real.

+ is shutting down after a vulnerability exposed 500,000 users' data Google is going to shut down its social media network Google+ after the company suffered a massive data breach that exposed the private data of hundreds of thousands of Google Plus users to third-party developers. According to the tech giant, a security vulnerability in one of Google+'s People APIs allowed third-party developers to access data for more than 500,000 users, including their usernames, email

addresses, occupation, date of birth, profile photos, and gender-related information. Since Google+ servers do not keep API logs for more than two weeks, the company cannot confirm the number of users impacted by the vulnerability. However, Google assured its users that the company found no evidence that any developer was aware of this bug, or that the profile data was misused by any of

the 438 developers that could have had access. The vulnerability was open since 2015 and fixed after Google discovered it in March 2018, but the company chose not to disclose the breach to the public—at the time when Facebook was being roasted for Cambridge Analytica scandal. Besides admitting the security breach, Google also announced that the

company is shutting down its social media network, acknowledging that Google+ failed to gain broad adoption or significant traction with consumers. In response, the company has decided to shut down Google+ for consumers by the end of August 2019. However, Google+ will continue as a product for Enterprise users. Google shares fell over 2 percent to $1134.23 after the data breach reports.

Will Smith-Ranveer Singh-Karan Johar Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar-Koffee with Karan-Farhan Akhtar Ganesh Acharya-police complaint Will Smith gets Bollywood lesson from ‘two of the best in the game’ American actor Will Smith is surely having a blast in India, thanks to Ranveer Singh and Karan Johar. The Hollywood star took to his official Instagram account to share some fun pictures from his dinner date with Karan Johar and Ranveer Singh in Mumbai. He posted a picture where KJo and Ranveer can be seen teaching him the tricks of Bollywood. The post read, "Learning the ropes of Bollywood from two of the best in the game!" Ranveer and Karan can be seen striking a quirky romantic pose while Will can be seen laughing along with them. Karan commented on the post, saying, "Haha! I have no clue what we were trying to do!! Was so much fun though."

The 'Pursuit OF Happyness' actor, who is in Mumbai to attend an event, made an appearance on the sets of 'Koffee with Karan'. The dynamic duo Ranveer and Akshay Kumar shot for their Koffee episode recently, with Smith gracing the sets. From then, speculations are doing the rounds that the episode may feature Will as well.

Deepika Padukone to play acid

attack survivor in her next

Bollywood's leggy lass Deepika Padukone is set to portray the role of an acid attack survivor in her next film. Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh made it official on his official Twitter handle. He also revealed that 'Raazi' director Meghna Gulzar will helm the film. "IT'S OFFICIAL... After #Padmaavat, Deepika Padukone teams up with #Raazi director Meghna Gulzar... Deepika will portray the part of an acid attack survivor in the film," wrote Adarsh. The 32-year-old will reportedly essay the role of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, who was attacked at the tender age of 15. Her attacker, a 32-year old man, was an acquaintance of her family. Agarwal is a well-known advocate of stricter punishments in acid attack cases. Deepika Padukone was last seen on the big screen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmaavat'.

Tanushree Dutta lodges police complaint against Nana Patekar, Ganesh Acharya Tanushree Dutta has finally taken the legal route and filed a police complaint at the Oshiwara police station in Mumbai against Nana Patekar and Ganesh Acharya in connection with 2008 'Horn Ok Pleasss' set incident. The complaint has not been converted into an FIR yet. Tanushree has alleged that Patekar misbehaved with her on the sets of the film in 2008. She accused him of harassing her while shooting for a

special dance number in the movie and also stated that Bollywood dance choreographer Ganesh Acharya teamed up against her. The 'Aashiq Banaya Aapne' actor added that she and her family were attacked after she declined to perform some intimate steps with the veteran actor. Patekar, however, refuted these allegations and said that "a lie will remain a lie." Tanushree was also slapped with a legal notice by Patekar.

Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar row is "meaningless" for Kailash Kher Singer Kailash Kher on Saturday refrained from commenting on the controversy surrounding Tanushree Dutta and veteran actor Nana Patekar and dubbed the issue as "meaningless". Kher told ANI, "This is a meaningless issue for me. I believe if two people are fighting there are institutions made for the purpose; they have legal recourse available for them." He added, "If others talk about such issues, they are just trying to act smart. I am not born to do meaningless talk." On being asked about whose side is he on, the 'Teri Deewani' singer refused to comment saying, "I am on my side. I am on a good heart's side. It depends on a person to choose between positivity and negativity. People should talk about their work and meaningful things." Tanushree Dutta has alleged that Patekar misbehaved with her on the sets of the film 'Horn Ok Pleasss'. She has accused him of harassing her while shooting for a special dance number in the movie and also claimed that dance choreographer Ganesh Acharya teamed up against her. Patekar, however, has refuted the

allegations and said that a "lie will remain a lie." The allegations stirred a storm in the B-Town, with celebrities giving mixed reactions on the case.

Entertainment I PRAYED FOR DEATH: Kim Kardashian Stormy Daniels on sex with Trump

insurance firm sue bodyguard The insurance company that compensated reality TV star Kim Kardashian after her Paris robbery is all set to sue her former bodyguard, Pascal Duvier. According to court documents, American International Group (AIG) filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against Pascal Duvier and his company -Protect Security- for USD 6.1 million.

Stormy Daniels, who is well known for her claims about having an affair with US President Donald Trump has now revealed she prayed for death while she was in bed with the latter. The adult star, who appeared on reality TV host Jimmy Kimmel's late night talk show revealed the details, reported Deadline. She came to promote her tell-all memoir 'Full Disclosure'. During his show Jimmy turned rather inquisitive about how she would "spank Donald Trump", and in a comic turn of events, he arched his back towards Daniels in order to get a first-hand experience. Stormy Daniels actually demonstrated it to Jimmy by spanking him three times with

her novel. To add more fuel to the fire he asked whether she "made love with the President", to which the latter replied in a rather disgusted tone and said that she lay in bed and "prayed for death". The interview got naughtier by the minute, and Kimmel's inquisitiveness grew along with it. He brought out a lineup of artificially made mushrooms of different sizes and asked Daniels, which among them "would most represent the Commander in Chief of the United States military?” To which she picked the smallest of them all and said that it was an exact representation of the current President. You know what she meant!


According to the complaint, the company claimed that Duvier, along with the security firm, "negligently, carelessly, and/or recklessly" performed their duties of protecting the star and the apartment she stayed at while attending the Paris Fashion Week in October 2016. Notably, AIG said that Kim, who was left alone in her room, somehow failed to address several security breaches, including a missing/broken lock, a malfunctioning intercom and lack of CCTV surveillance in the building. Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint and was robbed of around USD 10 million in cash and jewellery. Duvier has earlier provided security to the Black Eyed Peas, apart from other members of Kim's family.

Sports India name squad for

Homecoming for Sindhu, Marin to football friendly against China ply trade for Pune in PBL season 4 Indian men's football team coach Stephen Constantineon Tuesday announced his 22-member squad for the team's first-ever international fixture against China at the Suzhou Olympic Sports Centre Stadium in Suzhou city on October 13. Constantine said Balwant Singh had to be dropped from the squad because of some unavoidable circumstances. "As his passport will expire in less than six months, he was denied a Chinese

visa," he stated before the departure of the team.

Out of the 17 face-offs between India and China so far, the Red Dragons have won on 12 occasions. The rest of the five matches ended in a stalemate. Constantine mentioned that although the match is labeled as a 'friendly', it was a serious affair for the entire team. "Friendly or no-friendly, it's the Indian national team. It's only a friendly game for the world but not for us," he said. The two national teams will lock horns after a gap of 21 years. In the last meeting, which took place in the Nehru Cup tournament in Kochi in 1997, China pipped India 2-1. The 22-member squad is as follows: Goalkeepers - Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, Amrinder Singh, Karanjit Singh. Defenders - Pritam Kotal, Sarthak Golui, Sandesh Jhingan, Anas Edathodika, Salam Ranjan Singh, Subhasish Bose, Narayan Das. Midfielders - Udanta Singh, Nikhil Poojary, Pronay Halder, Rowllin Borges, Anirudh Thapa, Vinit Rai, Halicharan Narzary, Ashique Kuruniyan.

World Champion Carolina Marin and Olympic silver medallist P. V. Sindhu were expectedly the most sought after Icon Players as the two 2018 world championship finalists were picked by Pune 7 Aces and defending champions Hyderabad Hunters respectively in the players' auction for the fourth edition of the Premier Badminton League (PBL) here on Monday. With no retention or Right to Match (RTM) card at disposal, the players' auction was always going to be a keen contest for teams to get the combination right while looking for that one Icon Player who can inspire them to glory. Indonesia's Tommy Sugiarto became the highest paid non-Icon Player with the Delhi Dashers splurging INR 70 lakh for his services. The Delhi outfit won a tense battle with two other teams to acquire the World No. 11, paying more than double his base price (INR 30 lakh).

Among the Indians, rising doubles star Satwiksairaj Rankireddy was the top draw, with Ahmedabad Smash Masters outbidding the Hyderabad Hunters to secure the youngster for INR 52 lakh, a massive jump from his base price of INR 15 lakh. The fourth season of PBL, organised by Sportzlive under the aegis of Badminton Association of India (BAI), will kick off in Mumbai from December 22. The tournament offers a total prize of INR 6 crore.

Odisha govt unveils Hockey WC mascot 'Olly' In the run-up to 2018 Men's Hockey World Cup slated to be held in Bhubaneshwar, Odisha government department of sports and youth services launched the official mascot, named 'Olly' at the Puri sea beach in Odisha, on Tuesday. The World Cup trophy was also launched along with the mascot. The mascot was seen doing the rounds near the beach, riding a jet ski, wooing

the onlookers. Later, he unmounted the ski and came to the beach to meet officials of the sports department and kick-start the unveiling ceremony. The 2018 Hockey World Cup, is scheduled to be held from November 28 to December 16. India has been able to lay hands on the trophy just once in 1975. After former Hockey skipper Sardara Singh hanged his boots last month, the onus to lead the side has come on the shoulders of experienced goalkeeper PR Sreejesh. Recently, the Indian hockey team failed to deliver up to the mark performance at the 2018 Jakarta Asian Games and came back with a bronze. Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik had earlier announced that his government will collaborate with music director AR Rahman and lyricist Gulzar for composing the title song of the marquee event.

India defeated Sri Lanka by 144 runs in the final of the U-19 Asia Cup to clinch the trophy here at the Shere Bangla National Stadium on Sunday. Chasing a mammoth target of 305 runs, Sri Lankan batting line-up failed to put up a strong fight as they lost all their wickets at the score of 160 runs. It was left-arm spinner Harsh Tyagi who spearheaded Indian bowling attack by scalping six Sri Lankan wickets to make the final contest a one-sided clash. While spinner Siddharth Desai picked up two wickets by giving out 37 runs, leftarm pacer Mohit Jangra took one wicket in his spell of 8.4 overs.

For Sri Lanka, opener Nishan Madushka Fernando scored highest 49 runs for his team followed by left-hand batsman Navod Paranavithana (48). Earlier, batting first, Indian opener Yashasvi Jaiswal, along with Anuj Rawat, gave a smashing start to their team by contributing a respective total of 85 and 57 runs. Thereafter, middle-order batsman Simran Singh (65) and Ayush Bodani (52) took the Indian innings forward helping their side to put a strong total on the board. Harsh Tyagi was adjudged for his impressive bowling figures (6/38) in the match.
