Trump, Kim Jong-un in Singapore for ‘One Time Shot’ summit as the world awaits with bated breath



Discount on all services by producing this cut-out

United States President Donald Trump labelled his upcoming summit with Kim Jong Un as a “one-time shot” for the North Korean leader to reach a nuclear weapon deal. He further said that the summit would be about building a relationship and setting up a dialogue with a leader having an “unknown personality” as Kim has not yet physically met leaders of his neighbours including Japan and China. “Kim is going to surprise on the upside. Many leaders next to him have never met him. We have worked very well for the summit. We are going with a right attitude,” said Trump

While answering a question about denuclearisation, Trump said: “It would take a bit of time.”

“Within the first minute by touch, feel I will know that. You know if you like someone in first five minutes” Trump added.

“We appreciate the working of North Korea working with us. It is important for North, South Korea, Japan, US, and the world that North Korea gets denuclearised.”

The ‘historic’ summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un is set to take place on June 12.

Trump further said, “Very few people had such an opportunity. It is a one-time shot. I think it will go very well.” “There’s a good chance it won’t work out,” he continued. “There’s probably an even better chance it will take a period of time.”

The two leaders are scheduled to have a working lunch with aides. Singapore is all set to host Tuesday’s much awaited summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un over dismantling the North’s nuclear weapons programme.

Cover Story Ramadan experience and Eid the festival of joy Night of Power, good food and positive vibes and of course the Eid spirit that’s all for the physical and spiritual well-being of Muslims By Raziqueh Hussain With a heavy heart we’ll be bidding adieu to the glorious month of Ramadan, The last ten nights are especially important to Muslims all over because of Laylat al Qadr, the Night of Power, which marks the night in which the Quran was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad by Allah. Muslims regard this as the most important event in history, and the Quran says that this night is better than a thousand months (97:3), and that on this night the angels descend to earth. Lailat al Qadr is a good time to ask for forgiveness. Shia Islam has special significance for 19th and 21st night of Ramadan because those dates are mourning dates. As first Imam Ali, cousin brother as well as son in law of Prophet Mohammed was stabbed with a poisoned sword, on the back of his neck, while he was in prostration in the morning of 19th Ramadan. He became a martyr as result of the wound on the morning of 21st Ramadan. His tomb is in Najaf in Iraq which is a pilgrimage site for many. During Ramadan, the daily life in any Muslim country is flipped upside down! The city wakes up after sunset with bright decorations and lively feasts, it is a great time to visit and enjoy Ramadan nights and explore a unique Arabian culture whether it’s taking a stroll in the Souqs and enjoying local treats, experiencing Iftar or Suhoor in the famous Ramadan tents,

or taking in the illuminations in cultural villages, the city is yours to explore. From lavish Iftar and Suhoor buffets, with traditional decoration, live entertainment and board games and shisha, a Ramadan tent is an ideal place to experience the culture and spend evenings with family and friends during Ramadan. Traffic during the day is less and you won’t hear people using profanities during the day! What a nice change. If only this continued the year round. Smoking on public transport decreases. I don’t smell like an ashtray and of course I can breathe. Kids can stay up as long as they want and nobody bothers them. Now, that’s good news for restless kids who have had a sweet serving of dessert before bedtime. Iftar invites become a blessing! That moment when your aunt invites you over for iftar and you’re hit by the sudden realization of not having to cook for a day! Not today kitchen, not today. A great part of the month passes by like that. Every Ramadan we get to experience is a gift. We work so hard to better ourselves during Ramadan, now that it’s over the goal should be to maintain the new good habits and continue the progress. Eid affords an opportunity of spiritual stock-taking, after the month of Ramadan. A Muslim can now ponder over the strength (or weakness) of his will power; he can see, in the mirror of Ramadhan, what were the strong (or weak) points of his character, because under the stress of fasting, the hidden qualities (or evils) of human character come to surface in such clear way which is, perhaps, not possible otherwise.

probably no one else may ever detect. It enjoins the well-to -do persons to share a portion of what they have with their poor brethren. On the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr, a Muslim is obliged to give to the needy food-stuff at the rate of a prescribed weight, on behalf of himself and of every member of his family, including servants and guests who were sheltered under his roof on that night. It would certainly be pleasing to Allah if we did not forget these lessons after Eid-ul-Fitr. On this day, special prayers are held the world over, between sunrise and noon, when the Muslims assemble, in large congregations, wearing their best dresses standing shoulder to shoulder, demonstrating for everyone the universal brotherhood which is another distinguishing feature of Islam. Let us re-dedicate our life to the cause of humanity, which is the best way to demonstrate our love of Allah. Let us resolve that our energies, in the coming year, will be directed towards strengthening a society based on mutual respect, brotherly love, and universal understanding.

Community A microcosm that mirrors Westhaven

Kevin Lidgard, speaks to us about his childhood memories, his passion and the legacy of Westhaven Marina. At the helm of affairs, Kevin has a long history in the marine industry. He has spent a considerable amount of time trying to progress the development of the marina and related facilities at Westhaven. Auckland today is known as the ‘City of Sails’, most certainly for its maritime passions. Kevin’s earliest memories are in the 1950s, when his Dad bought their boat building business to Auckland. That was the start of his interest in yatchs and boat building. At that time, Westhaven existed more as a shelter. The key principle was boat designer ability, and people were able to build boats in their backyard. Westhaven then started to grow commercially, the demand began to increase and that’s how the first pontoon boats were sold in 1960. Kevin’s parents were the first to put those boats in Westhaven. “What is now converted into the current Westhaven office, is where we grew up as children’, says Kevin. There were only around 30 berths at that time in the 1960’s which has grown to nearly 2000 today. He grew up here with his brothers sharing the same recreational lifestyle. Life was fun as they grew up, he, his brother and the other boys started building their own boats, and it is no surprise that they all grew up and became boat builders. Kevin also did the first ocean race in Auckland in a small boat that you can’t imagine you can cross an ocean today. He was good at yatching, doing ocean racing several times and representing Auckland.

“Westhaven was given to the Auckland harbour Board and later developed into the Port of Auckland which is a privately-run company. When Auckland became a super City 12 years ago, the govt bought the Marina and gave it to the council and it remained a crown entity for the mid term future. So, the Council is the land owner and asset owner, they gave the management of the marina to a council controlled organisation called Waterfront Auckland that has now merged with Auckland Council. This is now called Panuku Development Auckland” - Kevin The main source of revenue is the rentals that come from berthing the boats. It is a complex business model, more of a body corp managing the asset. Half or all of the pontoon boats are licensed or leased. Each of the 1500 pontoon boats have a lease that would expire in 9 years time. Originally they used to be for 30 years. Panukau development earns half of these licences and that’s where the revenue comes from. The business organisation is tasked with the revitalisation of the city’s waterfront, and the main core is to administer the berths, manage and

maintain the infrastructure, plumbing, water sewage, electricity and so on. Kevin says, “The recently made Westhaven Promenade is a big step towards growth by Panuku Development Auckland.The Westhaven promenade also makes a significant contribution towards achieving the vision for a public waterfront wide walkway and cycleway. Recently the Open Day, was organised, free for the public at the Westhaven Marina. Also, the foreshore authority is planning events for more participation for people from multicultural backgrounds. There is a lot of planning involved with Marine Village where cafes and marine-related shops will be coming up shortly. The Westhaven Marine Village will provide a hub for businesses in the marine industry, right in the heart of the country’s biggest marina. Kevin has a wealth of knowledge which is helping to drive major refurbishment works and facility improvements.

Panuku is a Maori word that means to move or move on. He explains that Westhaven is a progressive marina. One can see that Kevin is truly aligned with the spirit of Westhaven. He is devoted to continually improving and integrating activities, creating more business opportunities, quality and an attractive recreational lifestyle that’s truly world class - the best that New Zealand has to offer.

Westhaven Marina in Auckland, New Zealand, is the largest yacht marina in the Southern Hemisphere. In 2008, it received its second-time-running international ‘Blue Flag award’ for its water quality, environmental management and safety standards. It is one of 640 marinas worldwide (and the only marina in New Zealand) to have received the award. By Erum Ali

Local Stories Jacinda bids goodbye to Wellington for six weeks as Kiwis await the ‘PRIME’ baby’s arrival. On 11th June, 2018 was the last day for the Prime Minister that she spent in the capital until she returns from parental leave, as she prepares for the birth of her child.

With a due date of 17 June, she said she may be “tempting fate” by continuing to travel to Wellington so would remain within driving distance of Auckland from now on.

Jacinda Ardern has just given her last post cabinet news briefing before taking six weeks off for parental leave.

She told reporters the “impending arrival” of a new addition to the family was an exciting time.

Ms Ardern said she would continue to work but after today would be based in Auckland. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on her way to the post cabinest news briefing on 11 June. Photo: RNZ/Chris Bramwell

“I have to admit though, of course things like travel does add a little air of tension because it means you’re not just managing your own, you’re managing logistics in case things happen before you expect them,”

She would also continue to receive all Cabinet papers while on parental leave, and would also expect to deal with any disciplinary matters involving Labour Party ministers.

- Ms Ardern said. Once Ms Ardern arrives at the hospital, New Zealand First leader and deputy prime minister Winston Peters will take over as acting prime minister. She has set out in writing the expectations she has of Mr Peters, in line

with the Cabinet Manual. If there was a “significant political, strategic or public interest, or national security”, Ms Ardern would be consulted and involved in any decision that might be needed.

Last week a tweet from Ms Ardern’s partner Clarke Gayfordon “almost having a baby” had people wondering whether the couple had a false alarm. She admitted the decision to remain Auckland-based had increased the tension about the impending arrival.

Dream of owning a home? Don’t let you dream get away

However, Ardern said she was excited. “I have to admit though, of course, things like travel do add a little air of tension, because it means that you’re not just managing your own, you’re managing logistics in case things happen before you’re ready”. The prime minister lives in the Auckland suburb of Sandringham, within her Mt Albert electorate, with partner Clarke Gayford.

Politics Indian youth desire for reformation Youngsters around the City demand a change which can bring progress in New Zealander’s life. The Indian News has chatted to a few youngsters from the city to identify the worries and proposals of our Community about the governance.

Jerome Mathew, a parking professional, is apprehensive about the immigration rules. “My major concern is immigration rules. Both the present and the previous governments are not addressing our points. It should be flexible” Said Jerome. He suggests that by reducing the approval of student visas can achieve them to keep their target. “I am not blaming the government; they should be flexible with the people who have been working in New Zealand. If they want to cut down the numbers they can lessen the number of student Visas” he added

Preethi Kaur a petrol station employee suggest that govt should provide health care facilities to the immigrants . “It is totally unfair that immigrants on temporary visa cant enjoy the health care befits. Recently one of my friends spent hundreds of dollars at the GP for consultation. It is a big strain for us since we have only a small saving. We are also paying the taxes hence they should provide medical benefits for us” said Preethi . She anticipates that government will spout their concerns. “I am sure the government will make a change if someone supports this issue to the government” she added

“Nursing professionals have been raising our voice for better consideration. The government and the society should understand the importance of our demand since health sector is one of the inevitable

service sectors of our country.” said Kiran, a registered nurse from New Lynn. Kiran anticipates that some political changes may occur in the future to address the worries of the nursing community especially those who work in aged care sector as they get less payment to the DHB nursing staff.

Students also have their concern. Nithin, a AUT University student, is worried about the immigration rules. “Most of the Indian students are worried about the immigration policy change. When we came here work visa was considered as a pathway for residency. Now we don’t have hope in that. We are ready to offer our level best to New Zealand.” Said Nithin. He recommends that migrants could form a political movement to raise the concerns of the community.

Mathews, a hospitality professional, thinks that a collective movement of Indian community can reach the voice of the migrants to the Government.

“Mainstream parties are not admitting to our concerns. We need a sustainable political change for the progress of New Zealand community. Let’s make New Zealand great” said Mathews. Mathews is bothered about immigration reforms since the current wages of the hospitality industry cannot help him to meet the salary threshold for residency. “We came to New Zealand and grabbed a skilled profession, unfortunately, the hospitality industry in New Zealand is not a heavily paid profession. Hence, either the government should take necessary action to raise our wages, or they should be flexible with the salary threshold” Mathews added

Gambling & Poverty go hand in hand Harmful gambling has serious social and health consequences. Gambling fuels poverty which has a significant impact on our families and children. For some of our recent migrants who on arrival feel that gambling is a legal activity in New Zealand gambling becomes a form of escapism from loneliness or lack of family support locally. A number of our international students take up gambling as a form of recreation only to turn it in to a habit and addiction. Some of local communities gamble in hope that they can provide more financial support for their families. This may lead to a psychology of chasing losses, which leads to financial pressure on the very families that gamblers seek to provide extra financial support for. Gambling involves pokie machines in pubs and clubs, casino gambling, TAB (including sports betting) and even Lotto. Recently I had the opportunity to meet representatives from the Problem Gambling Foundation whose research point to pokie machines as the major

source of problem gambling. Pokie machine are the cause of over 50 per cent of gambling harm in New Zealand. The amount of money spent by gamblers on pokie machines located in our local pubs has risen significantly. This is more visible in low decile areas such as in my electorate of Manukau East where there is likely to be 1 machine for every 71 people in comparison to 1 machine for every 466 in decile 7 -10 areas. The Department of Internal Affairs figures appear to support the theory a significant amount of the gambling takes places in the pokie machines located at our local pubs and clubs. These accounted for $878 million in the year to September 2017. Maori and Pasfika have a higher prevalence of problem gambling and the Kiwi Indian community is an emerging group of concern. Independent research shows that gambling is not and cannot be considered an economic activity neither can it be classed as economic nor tourism growth for our county. Apart from the financial distress that gambling and chasing losses gambling causes it is also recognised as a cause of

family and domestic violence and plays a role in criminality. Violence is driven by guilt, fear and stress and has major impacts on our children and families. Resources used toward tackling incidents of violence caused due to gambling can be better deployed in areas where these can make a better impact to lives of our citizens. The Ministry of Health’s own research shows that over a quarter of the support provided was because of family violence fuelled by gambling. Apart from stretching our public health system, gambling also has a significant impact on the prison population. There is also the issue of money laundering which fits in to the larger context of tax evasion, criminal activity proceeds and financing terrorism and gambling. Identifying the sources of money that fuel increased spending in pubs and clubs is needed. Failure to do so will undermine the social wellbeing and public health of our children who may end up living in communities supported by proceeds of crime.

Mr. Kanwaljit S Bakshi

National List MP based in Manukau East and is New Zealand Parliament’s first Indian Sikh Member communities along with the health and prison system. It is in the interest of our communities to have access to help in areas that are most affected by gambling. We need to provide financial literacy along with customised support for gamblers and other affected by such habits. It is in our interest to have communities who do not feel stigmatised in seeking help towards any form of gambling addiction. We need to help them understand the harm that gambling causes amongst families, communities, health service providers, the justice and police teams.

As per a Deutsche Welle report, Merkel, in her first interview after the summit, called Trump’s statement as “a little depressing” and termed the G7 communique as an “arduously negotiated” one.

However, despite Trump’s decision, Merkel insisted that she would continue working with him and at the same time, prepare the European Union to counter the US tariffs on steel and aluminium just like Canada.

This came after Trump tweeted, “Based on Justin’s (Trudeau) false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive

“Europe must take its fate into his own hands and no longer imprudently follow the US,” Merkel said.

Earlier in the day, Canadian President Justin Trudeau said that they would move forward with “retaliatory measures.” Later, Trump’s trade adviser Peter Navarro said in an interview with Fox News, “There is a special place in hell for any foreign leader who engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door.” In a sly rebuke of Navarro’s comment, Top European Union official Donald Tusk tweeted, “There is a special place in heaven for Justin Trudeau. Canada,

thank you for the perfect organisation of G7!” Meanwhile, when asked about Kudlow and Navarro’s comments, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said that she was thankful she was “not responsible for explaining the reasoning behind any comments made by the officials of any foreign government.” She further said that the US tariffs were “illegal and unjustified” and Canada did not believe in using “ad hominem attacks.”

PM Modi praises Ghani’s SCO Summit: plenary session kicks off move towards Peace

The plenary session of 18th Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit has kicked off at Qingdao International Convention Centre in China’s Qingdao city. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who reached Qingdao on Saturday afternoon, is also present on the occasion along with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian president Vladimir Putin and Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani among other leaders. Prior to this, a restricted session had taken place which was attended only by the SCO members. The final day of the two-day annual summit commenced with a welcome ceremony and a group photo of leaders of the eight SCO member-states.

Ahead of the plenary session, Prime Minister Modi met with Chinese President Xi and shared handshake.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday praised Afghan President Ashraf Ghani for taking steps towards peace.

This is the first SCO Summit India is attending as a full-time member.

This was in reference to the ceasefire, Ghani announced, with the Taliban for Eid on June 7.

In June 2017, India and Pakistan became full members of the organisation at Astana summit in Kazakhstan. During the summit, the leaders of the member states will sign the Qingdao Declaration and some other agreements on security, economic cooperation, and peopleto-people exchanges.

Prime Minister Modi also expressed hope that it will be respected by all parties, Tolo News reported. In response to Ghani’s announcement, the Taliban on Saturday announced a ceasefire for the first three days of Eid. This is the first ceasefire by the militant group in Afghanistan since 2001.

The leaders will also analyse international and regional security situations and discuss measures to boost cooperation.

Prime Minister Modi made the remarks after India and China agreed to undertake a joint economic project of capacity building in Afghanistan.

The SCO was founded in Shanghai 17 years ago and it now accounts for nearly half of the world’s population and over 20 per cent of global GDP.

Prime Minister Modi also slammed the attempts to threaten peace in Afghanistan calling the situation as an unfortunate example.

It is by far the largest regional organisation in the world.

Addressing the summit, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said a new agreement signed by the bloc combating terrorism jointly for the next three years.

The new counterterrorism agreement includes joint drills, exchanging information and conducting coordinated anti-terror action, Putin added. The two-day annual Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit was held in China’s Qingdao city. It was the 18th SCO summit. Founded in 2001, the Beijing-based bloc helps resolve border issues, fight terrorism. It aims at countering American influence in Central Asia following its invasion of Afghanistan.

Globally, Airbnb offers over 12,000 Experiences across 180+ cities around the world, with bookers from over 73 different countries. In India, Goa is the second largest market for Experiences after New Delhi.

Recognized as one of the fastest growing tourism markets in India, Goa holds a special importance for Airbnb. Only last year, the brand partnered with local insiders in the state to curate Airbnb’s Goa Insider’s Guide offering travellers a look at stunning homes spread across the state as well as unique ideas to authentically experience Goa ‘Like Locals’. “Airbnb Experiences make travel magical again by immersing guests in local communities around the world, offering unique, one-of-a-kind immersions that are handcrafted and led by local experts,” said head of Airbnb Global Public Policy and Communications, Chris Lehane. “We want Goans to participate and benefit from local tourism by sharing their interests and passions, enabling them to make additional remuneration.

Business Housing Market subdued but continues to grow...

The latest CoreLogic data has revealed that growth in the housing market is slow but still increasing, which can be attributed to continuing low-interest rates from lenders and the general public’s faith in the market. The sales volumes in Auckland has subdued, which is to be expected in this time of year, down 3.0% from last year. Experts are predicting that home lending restrictions could be eased again as early as the end of the year. In January restrictions were eased to allow banks to lend up to 15 per cent of their new lending to owner-occupiers with a deposit of less than 20 per cent - up from 10 per cent. For Property Investors lending was eased up to 5 per cent to investors with equity of less than 35 per cent - down from 40 per cent equity. Experts cite the new government’s policies on investors, as well as the potential for continued stabilization and/or further reduction in the growth rates of household debt and house prices as factors to restrictions being loosened. The other big news in property has been the report released in the last

week revealing that meth residue posed no risk at all to housing tenants. Meth testing over the last few years has resulted in hundreds of tenants evicted from housing – any of whom are poorer families, struggling to find accommodation in the first place. Housing Minister Phil Twyford immediately launched a review by the country’s top scientists into meth contamination standards after relentlessly campaigning against meth testing while in opposition. It is estimated that more than $100 million was spent on unnecessary decontamination. Entering the property market for the first time can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be, working with an experienced mortgage broker can give you a valuable upper hand when navigating banks, and can save you from getting into more debt than you need to.

Once insurance policies are purchased they are rarely reviewed, and the unintended consequence may be increased premiums, reduced benefits or inadequate coverage. Like Life, Insurance is dynamic. Major life events, such as marriage, divorce, births of children, sickness, and employment status, can affect individuals’ insurance needs and the intended uses of policy benefits. The reasons for purchasing a policy today may not apply in the future, and benefits planned today may not be sufficient to meet one’s needs or the needs of his or her beneficiaries few years from now. Just as annual medical check-ups help individuals maintain proper health, insurance plan reviews can provide invaluable benefits. By evaluating current insurance policies once a year or every two years, individuals can

ensure that their policies keep up with their changing circumstances and may even result in re-rated and reduced premiums. Benefits of Insurance review: • Get more coverage for same or less premium • Meet your changing needs • Take advantage of new product / benefit offerings • Evaluate the ownership structure of your policy • Monitor investment returns • Review your beneficiaries Buy early to enjoy low premiums and while you are healthy to avoid loadings and exclusions.

Recipe / Food Butter Chicken

Serves 6

500g skinless, boneless chicken thighs in Tandoori Masala Marinade ( see last recipe) for at least 4 hours • 3tbsp canola oil • 1 onion pureed to a fine consistency • 1 tbsp crushed fresh garlic • 1 tbsp crushed fresh ginger • 1 tsp ground turmeric • 1 ½ tsp garam masala

There is a common misconception that Butter Chicken does not exist in India. This is not true. In India it is more commonly know as Murg Makhani (Chicken Buttery) or as we call it at Little India Murg Mumtaz. Sadly in New Zealand the taste of Butter Chicken has been Westernised as the majority of places that sell it add a lot of sugar to the recipe. This is certainly not the case at Little India. Note the chicken needs to be marinated in Tandoori Masala Marinade ( from the last recipe) for at last four hours before you start making the dish.

Preheat over to 220 degrees C fan bake. Line a baking try with baking paper and place chicken thighs evenly on the baking paper. Do not cover the chicken with excess marinade or it will not cook through fully. Place the baking tray in the oven and cook for 10 minuets. The edges of the chicken will char – this is a good sign that the chicken is fully cooked. Cut the chicken into 3cm x 3cm cubes. While chicken is cooking, heat oil in a large pan over a medium heat and add onions stirring continuously so it doesn’t stick to bottom of pan. Cook until almost brown. Add garlic and ginger and cook until softened and brown. Add turmeric, garam masala, salt and fenugreek and continue cooking until you start to smell the spice aromas.

• • • • • • •

1 tsp salt 1 tbsp ground fenugreek 2 medium tomatoes diced 3 tbsp tomato paste 1 1/2 cups cream 2 tbsp finely crushed cashew nuts ½ cup boiling water

Editorial The Methamphetamine Fiasco

The latest findings about methamphetamine effect in Housing New Zealand houses have come at a time when National Party hawks were constantly targeting the Labour led government accusing them of financial mismanagement and failure on all fronts since their taking over the reins.

June 12, 2018

Community The 25 years of glorious journey of

Bharatiya Mandir

A multitude of problems caused by the last National Government are becoming more and more apparent. This is probably the biggest embarrassment for National Party in recent times since they have always been critical of the Labour led alliance after failing to form a government last year. Apparently, seems like there was no control of the previous National government over decisions that led to a hundred million dollars spend. They were incompetent, rather than malevolent. National leader Simon Bridges says the National government was basically ignorant of the problems. Simon Bridges welcomed the new report out yesterday on methamphetamine, saying new findings meant more people could occupy more houses but rejected speculation the previous Government was captured by the industry. “If the standard was too high, in a sense, it’s good news if it comes down. It means we can have more people housed in more houses,” he said. But he rejected any suggestion the previous Government was not as critical of the meth investigation and contamination industry as it could have been. “Ultimately it was the same deal with us as it will be with this current Government,” he says. Many learned experts of the subject have voiced saying Housing New Zealand was applying a wrong test method. The Housing New Zealand was insisting on cleaning up the properties where the methamphetamine was even consumed while the standards were to apply to clean up of the houses where there was a suspicion of the drug being manufactured. Its not that voices were not raised, they were told they were wrong, repeatedly. For instance, by Dr Stuart Jessamine of the Ministry of Health. If you happen to listen to his interview and sense the frustration in his voice as he pleads for Housing Corp to understand. So that simply means that some doubts raised by few National party loyalist about the credibility of the new findings are worthy of rubbishing off. Looks like National saw a chance to be tough on drugs and on beneficiaries at the same time and encash the opportunity by clearing out a few Housing Corp units and ready them for, presumably sale. They finally accept publicly that they were wrong. But their messaging is muddled and chaotic. National admits of not knowing about the faulty standard. They were ignorant rather than malevolent. The then Social Housing Minister Paula Bennet passes on the blame to Housing New Zealand and demanded them to apologise to the tenants who were kicked out on the suspicion of contamination, while in many cases, where traces of methamphetamine were found, there was no information whether the level of contamination found did consist of any risk. She has even demanded Housing New Zealand to re-evaluate the cases of those who were asked to evict homes and if need be, to compensate them. The housing agency has been criticised for using Ministry of Health meth test guidelines, which were only valid in former meth labs, to evict tenants for personal use. “Now that [the Ministry of] Health have come up with another standard, Housing New Zealand are applying that, and they’re just checking through to make sure that whatever cases they’ve dealt with in the past were dealt with fairly.” But, back then the National government must have known

Eleven Murties of the deities were carved of solid marble stone in Jaipur in India by renowned artists Shri Pandey Murtiwala Shankarshiu and brothers of Jagdish Narayan Artist of Jaipur. It took about four months to complete all Murtis. Sant Shri Morari Bapu blessed the beginning of the work and special pooja was performed on tools and the “Makarana” stone from which these Murtis have been carved. Murti of Shri Ganeshji is 3-1/2 feet tall and Ganeshji is in sitting posture on Kamal Asan. Hanumanji is standing in “Veer Ras” posture with “Parvata” on one land and Gadha in the other. This murti is five feet tall. Ram Darbar Ramji, Lakshmanji and Sita Mata are in standing postures of Ashirwad. Height of each murti is about five feet. In front Hanumanji is sitting as “Das” with folded hands. Lakshmi Narayan 4-1/2 feet high Murti of Narayanji is with four bhujas with Lakshmi Ma standing in Ashirwad posture with Kamal in one hand. Radha Krishna Krishnaji standing cross kegged playing flute of silver and in other hand has a “chharsi” made of copper with silver plating. Radhaji is standing in Ashirwad psture. Shiv Parivar Shivji and Ma Parvati with Ganeshji in her lap are in sitting posture. This is carved from one solid marble stone. Kartikji is sitting by their side in Sidhasan with six mukhas.

also Nandi, “Kachhapa” and a Shiv Ling in in black stone(8”x21”) with a yoni made of black stone. Jala Dhari-The hanging silver kalsa dripping on Shiv Linga is called Abhisheka. The Abhisheka is flowing through a pipe in a special build reception at the basement for Amrit. Nag Devta is made of copper with Silver plating. It will sit wrapping around his head surrounding the Shivlinga. Durga Ma Carved out of single Marble stone without any joints Ma is I sitting posture on Simha with Navaratri Shringar. The efforts and services of Shri Thkurbhai Purshotam for following up and supervising the task of Murti completion and transportation to New Zealand is commendable.He received a lot of help and cooperation from Shri Dineshbhai Parekh of Bombay in arranging for storage at Bombay and eventually for making arrangements of their shipment. The Shringar and Mukuts for all the Murtis have been specially selected and purchased fron India. These include three sets of silk clothes with Jari work and embroidery done by hand. Pure silver Pooja utensils, Hars and many other small items have been purchased in India. Fourteen utensils of Ganaga Jal with water from seven rivers of India are also brought from India. These rivers are Ganga, Yamuna, Saraswati, Narbhada, Taapi, Poona and Ambika.

Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says that it’s fortunate that India is hosting the World Environment Day 2018. He seconds the global theme of ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’ by giving the mantra of ‘Reuse or refuse plastic.’ Gurudev shares that even if we vow to cut down our usage of plastic by half, we’ll be doing a great service to the environment. He also threw light on how plastic usage is harming our planet and how we can switch to eco-friendly alternates to overcome this menace. He reminded the audience that the Indian ethos have been honouring and respecting the basic five elements of our lives from which this world is created i.e. earth, water, air, fire and ether, from the time immemorial. Our culture teaches us to worship Nature. He further said it is so it so heart wrenching to see those all those sacred five elements are being so badly polluted today. He appealed to all present there to stop this menace immediately and for that he suggested to create an awareness among the masses about the harms of using plastic products and finding alternatives of plastic wares. Gurudev suggested that more attention is needed to be given to the rural side of India as a lot usage Of plastic is being done by farmers in the farming process which until sometime back did not even exist. The economic factor has become so important that to reduce cost they

also have started using cheap plastic cover sheets, plastic sacks replacing cloth or jute products. This needs to be addressed very urgently because this not only polluting our environment but also poisoning our crops and other vegetation and eventually creating all sort of heath risks. HE was invited as main Speaker at World Environment Day in Delhi on 5th June 2018 along with Union Minister of Environment Dr Harshvardhan, Minister of State Environment Dr Mahesh Sharma and Head of UN Environment Erik Solheim.

Reiki: Source of Positive Energy Reiki essentially means life-force-energy in Japanese. It was discovered by Dr Mikao Usui during the mid-1900s. While teaching at a college, he was asked by students, how Christ and Buddha both facilitated miraculous healing. Since no missionary or monastery could answer this question, a Buddhist Monk suggested holding a 21 day fast to seek enlightenment at Mt Kurama. He was meditating for 21 days whilst fasting. Early morning on the 21st day, he had noticed a bright star in the sky which grew close to him and eventually burst on his head. Now he could feel the tremendous energy going through his head before falling unconscious. On revival, he found himself quite energetic and was eager to tell the monk. When running down, he hurt his foot but to his surprise, it healed as soon as his sight fell upon it. Reiki helps to relieve stress and tension, relaxing muscles and smoothing out mental/emotional pressure.

Now we move into the 5 principles of Reiki which are crucial to follow in order to witness the best

outcome for yourself and your patient. They help us maintain a positive outlook on the world and create awareness of the energy around, whilst being one with it. These can be used in our daily routines as well regardless of whether you practice Reiki or not. They go by, Just for today - I shall not be angry. I shall not worry. I shall be grateful. I shall work with honestly. I shall love and respect every living thing. Now that we have understood the basics, we can take a detailed look at the original system of Reiki. Traditionally, Reiki is taught on 3 levels with the elements of the system which are, Attunement ( to open and deepen our individual connection to Reiki and can only be given by a Reiki master ), Palm Healing Technique ( to enable us to give Reiki treatments ), Breathing / cleansing / meditation techniques ( to clear any blockages between us and reiki ), Symbols ( to bring us a deeper awareness of the universe and our place in it ). In each level, the students gradually advance from basic to the 3 symbols ( Power - CHO KU REI, Harmony - SE HE KI

and connection - HON SHA ZE SHO NEN symbols ), to the master symbol (DAI KO MYO). The students need to have mastered the previous level before new ideas and details are introduced to them. As mentioned above, there are 3 symbols which each have different meanings and are used to share positive energy with the patient. The Power Symbol or CHO KU REI in its simplest form means Earth Energy / the nourishment we receive from its land and atmosphere. The Harmony Symbol or SE HE KI means Heaven Energy and the wider Universe and various souls. The Connection Symbol or HON SHA ZE SHO NEN is the state of oneness and the fact that everyone is interconnected, bound by Love. Whereas The Master Symbol is the realisation of our true self and Enlightenment / To delve deeper into the great light of truth. This symbol can also be found in Buddhist Monasteries. The body comprises of 7 ‘chakras’ which are used to perform the exercises to in-order to improve its individual state. They are called Crown Chakra, Brow Chakra, Throat Chakra, Heart Chakra, Solar Plexus, Hara Chakra and

Root Chakra. Reiki is becoming increasingly popular and has started to be used in hospitals, alongside allopathic treatments to ensure a smooth treatment or operation. It is something that can improve terminal illnesses as well as being an aid for relaxation and assist in the body's natural healing processes. Developing emotional, physical, mental and spiritual well-being. It a method of alternative medicine/therapy and complements others well. Reiki is also used for cleaning a house from negative energy and forces. Whilst strengthening a person’s intuitive thoughts, as some may believe, it is certainly not based off any religion. Overall, Its use is not dependent on one's intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.

The Turbaned Tornado of Auckland

Balbir Singh It’s no secret that running a marathon takes not just physical but immense mental strength. For most people before the marathon, it is a lot of resting, carb loading and preparation before they start running non stop for around 4 - 6 hours. But for Balbir Singh, the story is quite different. This turban clad runner with a flowing beard is quite an eye catching sight. He draws attention from many passers by in North Shore as he goes by pounding the pavements without a care in this world. BALBIR SINGH – 80 YEAR OLD MARATHON RUNNER Born back in 1930s, this marathon runner’s capabilities are no child’s play. Singh has been heralded as one of the oldest and most active marathon runners in Auckland. Singh was born in Phillaur, a village in Punjab, India and has beaten a number of records in multiple age brackets in New Zealand. Singh credits his abilities and his youthfulness in old age to his lack of a big ego. He says it is an expensive hobby but he donates to charity and doesn’t horde his money. He had even set up a heart foundation charity Page on Facebook and supported it by running long distance marathons. The runner also says he continues to walk long distances every day, one day clocking 71 kms on his Fitbit prompting his family to think that the gadget was malfunctioning. They actually took it for a check but found to their utter shock and delight that it was absolutely accurate. He currently lives in Auckland and has run thousands of miles since completing

his first marathon a few years ago. It all started with a chance encounter with a young boy who came to his shop and casually spoke to him about a marathon that he had completed. That’s when Singh realised that is what he wanted to do and was caught by the running bug. He started running and was doing 50 and 60 kms quite casually. When he was running, observers were baffled at his ability to withstand the harsh winter weather marvelling at his lung capacity and his leg strength. Singh is a grandfather to 5 grand children. His wife died in her early 50’s in India. Balbir Singh is accompanied by his son, Gurdeep Singh Basra who helps get him through the race by constantly cycling alongside, providing water and some refreshment drinks. His daughter in law looks after his food, he explains that he is a vegetarian and only eats home cooked meals. Asking about what he drinks and eats the morning before the marathon, he says he consumes a glass of fresh milk with some grounded nuts and dry fruits. Pretty simple, nothing special at all. Some of his nicknames include the Turbanded Tornado and Auckland’s Fauja Singh. He completed his last longdistance race in Rotorua recently. He urges youngsters to participate in running for the love of the sport. His commitment to continue running more marathons is not just for pleasure but also for health and charity. He says a good laugh and a positive attitude to life is his Mantra. By Erum Ali

Health & Fitness An ‘orange twist’ for airborne medicine In the search for a new way to deliver airborne medication, researchers have turned to orange peels.

studied,” Dickerson said. “Nature is our greatest inspiration for tackling realworld problems.”

use inhalers. This approach may be less expensive and biodegradable.”

Engineering Assistant Professor Andrew K. Dickerson and graduate student Nicholas M. Smith from the University of Central Florida have figured out the mechanics of how oranges release that thin stream of fragrant oil when squeezed.

Florida’s fruit is complex. Its hard outer layer protects the fruit, and a white spongy layer just below the skin has microscopic reservoirs of oil in hidden pockets. The spongy material absorbs impact, but when squeezed to a critical pressure it pushes up and tears open a minute section of the hard outer-layer to spray its fragrant stream. These microjets are small but fast, exiting their cavities at 22 mph on average by accelerating 5,000 Gs, which is equivalent to about 1,000 times the force astronauts feels at launch.

An orange peel releases an oily substance, and the dynamics should hold for other types of liquids, the researchers said.

They characterized the orange peels’ structure and figured out the role the layers have to create the microjet dynamic. By mimicking nature’s mechanism of an orange layer, pharmaceutical companies may be able to develop a less expensive and less complex way to deliver airborne medication. “We study natural systems to mathematically characterize how creation works, and despite the ubiquity of citrus-fruit consumption, these jets had not been previously

“There are several potential applications,” Smith said. “For example, for asthmatics, you could have a small slice of material which would aerosolize emergency medication that you currently find in expensive, multi-

But there’s still some research needed before putting the orange peel approach to work delivering medication. “First, we need to work out sizes and proportions,” Dickerson said. “It’s important to understand exactly how the microjets work and how to tune their stability for medical applications. The size of droplets and the amount of medication they carry is critical. We’ve got a ways to go before applications can be explored.”

But when that happens, the possibilities are only limited by the imagination. “Imagine a self-diagnosing bridge,” Dickerson said. “It would have an orange-like skin layer and when you were approaching material failure, you would get a preventative warning, a color change perhaps.” The findings appear in Proceedings from the National Academy of Sciences.

Here’s why loneliness is bad for your heart Lonely people are twice as likely to die from heart problems, according to a research.

to April 2014 from five heart centres in Denmark to answer a questionnaire about their physical and mental health, lifestyle factors such as smoking, and social support.

The study found that feeling lonely was a stronger predictor of poor outcomes than living alone, in both men and women.

Social support was measured using registry data on living alone or not, and survey questions about feeling lonely - Do you have someone to talk to when you need it? Do you feel alone sometimes even though you want to be with someone?

“Loneliness is more common today than ever before, and more people live alone,” said Anne Vinggaard Christensen of The Heart Centre, Copenhagen University Hospital, Denmark.

“Previous research has shown that loneliness and social isolation are linked with coronary heart disease and stroke, but this has not been investigated in patients with different types of cardiovascular disease.” The study investigated whether poor social network was associated with worse outcomes in 13,463 patients with ischaemic heart disease, arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm), heart failure, or heart valve disease. Data from national registers was linked with the DenHeart survey, which asked all patients discharged from April 2013

“It was important to collect information on both, since people may live alone but not feel lonely while others cohabit but do feel lonely,” explained Vinggaard


Feeling lonely was associated with poor outcomes in all patients regardless of their type of heart disease, and even after adjusting for age, level of education, other diseases, body mass index, smoking, and alcohol intake. Loneliness was associated with a doubled mortality risk in women and nearly doubled risk in men. Both men and women who felt lonely were three times more likely to report symptoms of anxiety and depression, and had a significantly lower quality of life than those who did not feel lonely.

“Loneliness is a strong predictor of premature death, worse mental health, and lower quality of life in patients with cardiovascular disease, and a much stronger predictor than living alone, in both men and women,” said Vinggaard Christensen. Vinggaard Christensen noted that people with poor social support may have worse health outcomes because they have unhealthier lifestyles, are less compliant with treatment, and are more affected by stressful events. But

“We adjusted for lifestyle behaviours and many other factors in our analysis, and still

found that loneliness is bad for health.” She concluded: “We live in a time when loneliness is more present and health providers should take this into account when assessing risk. Our study shows that asking two questions about social support provides a lot of information about the likelihood of having poor health outcomes.” The study was presented at EuroHeartCare 2018, the European Society of Cardiology’s annual nursing congress.

Bourdain’s death a loss to culinary world:

Sanjeev Kapoor

Taking to her Twitter handle, the actress said that her intention was not to hurt the sentiment of the people and that she was a proud Indian.

Indian chef Sanjeev Kapoor opined that the death of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain was a huge loss to the culinary world. “It is very sad to hear about this extreme step he took. I would have never imagined that Anthony would do this. It is a big loss to the industry. A lot of people were inspired by his body of work,” he told. The noted chef further said Anthony’s death is not just a loss to those who knew him, but also to those who have not experienced the best he had to offer. “I think that the chef who loves to travel and explore is a true one and Anthony was a perfect example of a true chef. He was not only the ambassador of food of the world but he was also culinary ambassador to India,” Sanjeev explained. Bourdain allegedly committed suicide in

He was also recognised as an advocate for marginalised populations and campaigned for safer working conditions for restaurant staffs.

No permission needed to sing Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s Qawwalis, says Rahat

The episode which aired on June 1 drew flak on social media, with fans questioning how Priyanka, an Indian, could even agree to be a part of the controversial plot. Earlier, ABC Studios and executive producers of the TV series had issued an apology for the same. The ‘Baywatch’ star made her U.S. television debut in Quantico in 2015. The crime drama was recently cancelled by the ABC Studios.

Ed Sheeran dines at Asha Bhosle’s restaurant in Manchester British singer Ed Sheeran, along with his troupe, visited Indian singing sensation Asha Bhosle’s restaurant, ‘Asha’s’, here in Manchester. Asha Bhosle took to Twitter on Wednesday night to share a photograph of the ‘Shape of You’ hitmaker with the restaurant’s head chef Ashwani Rangta. Sheeran ordered a paneer vindaloo at the restaurant in Peter Street “Ed Sheeran with head chef Ashwani at our restaurant ‘Asha’s’ in Manchester, U.K.” she captioned the image.

It’s not going to be easy in Bollywood:

Arjun tells Janhvi

Acclaimed Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has said that he does not require anybody’s permission to sing the popular Qawwalis of his late uncle, legendary musician Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. “I’m the successor and the adopted son of my Ustad and Uncle Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Why would I need any permission?” Rahat Fateh Ali Khan said when asked if he does or would require permission to sing the Qawwalis of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, reported Geo TV. Rahat’s comments came after the daughter of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan over the weekend asserted that she intended to take legal action against anyone involved in the copyright infringement of the maestro’s songs. “I am the sole heir of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and the copyrights of my father’s songs are only with me,” Nida Nusrat said while addressing a news conference at

the Lahore Press Club. “If anyone wants to sing my father’s songs, they need to seek permission from me,” she said. Responding to a question as to whether she would also take legal action against Rahat Fateh Ali Khan who sang her father’s songs for Bollywood, Nida said, “Rahat is my brother and I will not take any action against him.”

Actor Arjun Kapoor has penned an emotional note for his step-sister Janhvi Kapoor, who is gearing up for the trailer launch of her maiden film “Dhadak” on Monday. “Tomorrow you will be part of the audience forever Janhvi Kapoor cause your trailer comes out... Firstly, sorry I’m not there in Mumbai but I’m by your side, don’t worry,” Arjun tweeted on Sunday night. “I just wanted you to know this profession is amazing if you work hard,

be honest, learn to take the accolades with the brickbats, respect opinions, yet follow your own path and instinct. It’s not gonna be easy, but I know you are ready for all the madness that will ensue,” he added. Arjun said that director Shashank Khaitan has presented Janhvi and Ishaan Khatter as the “modern Romeo and Juliet” in ‘Dhadak’. Arjun is step-brother of Janhvi and her sister Khushi, daughters of his father Boney Kapoor with late actress Sridevi.

French Open to lift a record 11th Roland Garros title here on Sunday.

Thiem, who was considered the underdog and the only player to beat Nadal twice on clay in the last two years, was no match for the Spaniard’s swift serves and aggressive athleticism. He was defeated 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 in straight sets in a match that lasted beyond 2.5 hours. It was also Nadal’s 17th grand slam title, three short of Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer’s all-time men’s record. Barring the first set, where the two players were going neck to neck, Nadal totally dominated the Roland Garros as he played excellent serves to go on to lift his 11th title, equalling Australia’s Margaret Court, who won the same number of title between the 1960s and 1970s. With this, the top-ranked Nadal now has 86 wins in the French Open, including the finals which he played in so far. He has just two defeats to his name in the annual tournament.
