Even though Semester VII Engineering exam results were declared only yesterday night, dates announced for next exam in May put students in a panic By Yatin Ingle

T

Should the police increase patrolling in public places? Darshan Panchal MBA Student Yes, This would ensure that the people would reach home safely without any untoward incident occurring.

Mohit Lala Bank Employee Yes, This would instill confidence in the public, who can rely on the cops at any given point of time.

Shivraj Nevrekar Cinematographer Might-be, This would be worth doing, as the police presence always prevents people from committing any crime. Shivshankar Dey Engineering Student No, The police presence should be more at isolated places which are often taken over by roadside hoodlums. Amol Kale Yes, It will ensure the safety of women travelling at odd hours, especially during the night.

“W

e have been saddened that the various issues affecting the Christian minorities raised with the concerned departments of various authorities have not only been ignored but also we find that the said issues have been presented with grave distortions, misinterpretations, not only to the higher authorities but even to the Chief Minister of Maharashtra,” said Dolphy D’Souza, spokesperson of SOUL-Save Our Land which has been fighting for issues related to the land acquisition notices served on St. Anthony's Church and St. Anthony's School at Malwani in Malad. It will be recalled that the St. Anthony's Church, which caters to 14,000 parishioners, was in the eye of a storm over a BMC notice to hand over its open plot as setback land for road widening. Christian organisations like Justice and Peace Commission (Archdiocese of Bombay), Catholic Sabha (Malwani and Orlem units), Watchdog Foundation (NGO), Bombay East Indian Association, Dharavi Beth Bachao Samiti will gather at Azad Maidan on March 15 against the States apathy towards the community on several issues. The core members of SOUL have also given a memorandum to the CM and Municipal Commissioner on issues affecting Christian Minorities which demanded the “withdrawal of the unjust Land Acquisition Notice, served on St. Anthony’s Church and St. Anthony’s School immediately and permanently.

After the Road Line is swung back and redrawn, put it up to appropriate authority for ratifying so that it becomes permanently secured from future harassment to the Church. Do not enforce the execution of proposed Road Line,” Dolphy said. Activist Nicholas Almeida said, “From December 01, 2012 we have approached various authorities including the Municipal Commissioner. All gave assurances but the problems have not been resolved. Our 30,000 signatures, memorandum, postcards, SMS and email campaigns have failed to stir them. Through RTIs and investigations we discovered a deliberate manipulation of the Malad/ Marve Road Line which swung it towards the church (A Heritage Grade II A structure - 400 years old) which robs the church of precious ancestral heritage land (approx. 25,000 sq. ft.).

Healthcare system to verify patients' identity in BMC hospitals By Khushboo Panjabi

T

he Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has taken an initiative to start a healthcare system in every civic hospital for correctly identifying a patient and matching him or her to the right medical record for which a tender will be finalised soon. If this system is passed, the patients will no longer have to stand in long queues for collecting their respective case papers. Every year, the civic authority generates around 35 lakh kilograms of case papers. On the lines of the paperless system concept, the IT department of the BMC has taken an initative to start this healthcare system. There are instances when multiple patients are found with the same first and last name. This leads to confusion. Dr. Suhasani Nagda, Dean of the doctors' association said, “Each patient has to register online through which a unique identity code number will be allotted to them which will help them with the right medical records. This will be a fast, safe

and reliable way to identify patients when they enter their code number in the healthcare system”. She added, “If a patient is being shifted from one civic hospital to another, this system will ensure that before the patient reaches the hospital his entire medical data will be examined and accordingly the treatment will be carried out”. There are instances when a patient loses case papers or X-Rays creating problem in diagnosis. This system will avoid such problems. Dr. Shubhangi Parkar added,“This data will also help us find collective data about a patient who is suffering from multiple problems. This will reduce the chances of duplication.The patients can check their medical records through an online process”. Nagda added, “Tenders have been invited from various software companies like Wipro, TCS etc. We still have to take a call on whether a ready-made software should be purchased or a new software should be created”.

against development. The church has already given over 10,000 sq. ft of land as the BMC took land equally on both sides but for the church and school area they want it only from the church side and not the opposite side (which is the only exception on the Marve Rd). In the recent past the BMC had made unjust attempts to take the St. Peters Church, Bandra, St. Andrews Church and Parsi Agiary lands. Citizen groups had vociferously protested. Recently notices were served on Sacred Heart Church, Santacruz and Missionaries of Charity at Vile Parle. The Damocles sword still hangs and we can’t remain quiet or complacent.” D'Souza said, “Our demands are withdrawal of unjust Land Acquisition Notices to Our Lady of Assumption Church, Kandivali and St. Joseph School, Kandivali and demand immediately the setting

up and making functional Christian cemeteries at Kandivali (East) and Goregaon (East) for over 1.25 lakh Christians as right from Dahisar to Jogeshwari on the Eastern side there is none in existence. Withdrawal of the demolition notices issued to Christian Crosses and institutions in the city of Mumbai/ Stop the desecration of Crosses and arrest the culprits immediately. Withdrawal of all tourism developments plans and dumping grounds from the Versova, Madh, Marve, Manori, Gorai, Uttan areas of Mumbai unconditionally. Demand immediate resolution of Gaothan’s issues through withdrawal of notifications in DP of gaothans as slums, scrapping SEZ’s/SRA schemes in Gaothan lands and open a single window repair permission to avoid harassment and corruption. Maharashtra in 2013 is the No.2 State in India with the highest atrocities against Christians through enforcement of rule of law and stricter monitoring of the police force. Arrest and punish those responsible for such crimes against humanity. Rehabilitation of the slums housed on storm water drains/ footpaths on the periphery of the St. Elias School. Khar West. We have been seeking an appointment with the Chief Minister since the last one year to present the true picture, which has not been forthcoming. Since our appeal has not been heeded we are forced to come out on the streets on Saturday. Our agitation and the lack of response from the State Government on these various concerns will have a bearing on how the Christian community votes at the forthcoming election.” philip.varghese@afternoondc.in

Shivaji statue's design sent to Envirnoment Ministry for final clearance By A Special Correspondent

R

ural Development Minister and Guardian Minister of Mumbai city Jayant Patil has said that the design for the Chhatrapati Shivaji statue in the Arabian Sea has been sent through the coastal zone management authority to the Union Environment Ministry for a final clearance. Speaking to reporters, Patil said, “The 190-meter tall Shivaji statue will be the tallest in the world. The government has sanctioned Rs.100 crore for the memorial in the first stage. The total estimated cost of the project is around Rs.1,400 crore and at least 10,000 people are expected to visit it everyday”. “The site for the memorial, at 1.2 km south-east of Raj Bhavan,

was approved by the committee set up by the government. The National Engineering Environment Research Institute (Neeri) has given its nod to the memorial. Neeri has clarified that the rock and the site of the memorial will not be affected by bad weather conditions. The design is done by the students of J.J. School of Arts. The surrounding area will have a landscape garden and an open space. A library, mini theatre, art gallery, and an aquarium will be built. The major events in Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj's life will be shown through a sound and laser show”, he added. “The access to this memorial will be from Gateway of India, Juhu and Gorai through the sea”, Patil said.

Into the third week of his elevation to Top Cop in Mumbai, Rakesh Maria is making waves for the right reasons. But “securing the city” is a relentless grind, and at the end of a long day of meeting people, the tiredness shows, as Neel Shah can tell

I

f Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria is to be believed, and no reason why he should not be, becoming the CP of Mumbai was a “childhood dream” for the man to whom there is no religion but law and order. “No nonsense in the name of god or political godfather,” is a basic article of faith has stood him in good stead. From the obscurity and wilderness of Akola and subsequently Buldhana district in the interior of Maharashtra, where he was first posted in the early 80s, he has risen steadily and at times, spectacularly, in the hierarchy. After the first week in the hot seat, Maria was asked how it felt. Rubbing his eyes, the man who has spent the last 33 years wearing khaki, said softly, “It has been the longest week in my life as a cop.” Outside his office, there were nearly 200 visitors waiting to see him. They had complaints – from underworld threats to land encroachments and even complaints of domestic violence. Inside the office, the huge symbol of the Mumbai police loomed over his chair as a backdrop. It has often overshadowed the incumbent. But Maria seems to be able to carry its weight, its symbolism and the responsibility it bestows, gamely, if not with ease. “Of course the underworld exists in the city and no one can finish it completely,” he says bluntly, as we wait for the usual “top cop” dismissal of one of the city’s most dire realities. “It can only be controlled. Like your fingernails which you must trim from time to time. The gangsters wait for the right time or an opportunity to rise again from the depths. My instructions to the crime branch and the police stations of the city are to get behind them constantly, without let up”. It is an assertion that could only have come from Maria, among the few IPS officers in the state entrusted with what the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Research & Analysis Wing (RAW) call “deniable” operations. These are particularly difficult operations and tasks planned to curb terrorist and underworld activities. His bluntness is striking. According to him, the duties of the police are specifically defined – they exist to provide security to society. “My job is to see that you reach home safely everyday, for which a cop has to do everything that is needed.” Women, children and senior citizens come first and he has plenty of ideas on how to achieve their safety. All he needs is a bit of time. His confidence is reassuring, and not even a question on whether the image of the police has been irredeemably compromised fazes him. “We need quality not quantity, and officer-oriented policing. If street crime is effectively tackled, then perceptions change. If street crime is not taken seriously then the public carries the impression that the police are not able to tackle routine crimes, leave apart the big crimes taking place in the city. “If street crimes are successfully tackled, then the perception of the

police in the minds of people is improved and thus the image is improved. Subsequently, faith is built up, which enables people to approach cops for information and the moment information starts coming, crimes can be controlled and my goals will be achieved,” explains Maria. He makes it sound easy! And what about criminals who are influential, who have political patronage or are themselves politicians? “The law is clearly defined. Irrespective of criminals being influential, I believe they can be brought to ground by hitting them and

their activities with sledgehammer force.” An officer of the 1981 batch, Maria has served the city in different departments of police, and always he has left his mark, either through change or through exemplary results. His first posting in the city was in 1986 as a Zonal DCP, after which he was posted as DCP (Traffic) in 1993. It was here that he showed his calibre by arresting most of the bomb blast accused involved in the March 12, 1993 serial blasts. His popularity soared and then there was no looking back. Immediately he was appointed as DCP (Detection) were he enjoyed the kind of popularity among his men, known for their rough-andready outlook, that was to be his hallmark in the later years. As Addl. CP (North-West Region), not many know that more than 80 encounters out of the 384 that took place in one year in the late nineties, did so under his watch, thus eliminating hardened gangsters from his region in seperate encounters. As Addl. CP (Crime), Maria earned so much respect that reverence for him almost bordered on worship. He cracked the 2003 Gateway of India and Zaveri Bazaar twin blasts case, arresting six persons, including a couple, for planting the explosive devices inside taxis. After this, he was transferred to the office of the Directorate General of Maharashtra as Spl. IG (Training), considered an obscure posting. When he popped up again, it was as Mumbai’s crime branch chief. For Maria, the next three years were a trial by fire. He was successful in breaking a well-entrenched politico-criminal nexus, neutralized the organized crime syndicates of Chhota Shakeel

and Chhota Rajan, broke the most dreaded terrorist module of Indian Mujahideen (IM), which was responsible for several blasts all over India, and probed the 26/11 case. In his last posting before becoming the city police head, he served as state ATS chief, where his officers probed several blasts cases in state and city, including the Pune German Bakery and Mumbai 13/7 serial blasts. Also, he was instrumental in arresting Afzal Usmani on October 27, 2013, an operative of IM gang, who had escaped from a city court a month earlier. His strategy is to reach out to people, make them more vigilant, aware and clear about terrorist threats and other crimes, so that the police can work together in countering antisocial elements and their activities. The reason for this is that the police cannot be omnipresent and they need this co-operation from the public. Born and brought up in Bandra, this Saturday he will be felicitated by residents as a “Bandra boy”. “I have grown up in Bandra playing basket ball wearing chappals. Naturally, people from that area have

more expectations than the entire city,” says Maria. Admitting that the crime rate in the western area, especially Zone 9, is among the highest in the city, he observes, “Crimes like housebreaking,, motor vehicle thefts and chain snatchings are high. For this we are studying the pattern of the crime committed in this area, from where the criminals come in and go. We will deal with it in the coming days.” Maria attributes his success to ‘his chosen few’ without whom he could not have achieved anything in the city and state as a whole. A good judge of people, once he makes his choice, he lets them get on with the job, giving them carte blanche with the provision that this must result in “getting rid of hardened criminals and their activities.” For him, there is no speaking softly through an officer. “I believe in cracking the whip on the underworld, using a crackdown. To eliminate organized syndicates, I first attack the economic pipeline of the gangster, which paralyzes their activities and then eliminate them,” said Maria. He makes it clear that he has no patience for the Cadillac Communists who preach from the safety of their homes at Nepean Sea Road and Cuffe Parade and argue for the rehabilitation of criminals. neel.shah@afternoondc.in

SSC student commits suicide By Suresh Golani

I

n a shocking incident, a 15-year-old student who had appeared for her SSC examinations, committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling of her house in Satpati village near Palghar on Tuesday afternoon.Samiksha Jitendra Meher – a student of Yamuna Yashwant Nijap High

School in Shirgaon – had appeared for her Marathi language paper on Monday and was preparing for the next language paper scheduled on Wednesday. Her elder sister alerted neighbours after Samiksha failed to respond to constant knocks to her study room situated in the upper floor of their single-storey house. Sensing something amiss,

neighbours broke open the door, only to find Samiksha hanging from the ceiling by her dupatta. She was rushed to a nearby hospital but was declared dead on arrival. While no suicide note has been recovered, the body has been sent for a postmortem, police said. Samikksha’s father works with a private company in Boisar and her mother is a

homemaker. “Although the exact motive behind the extreme step taken by the student is yet to be ascertained, prima facie, it appears that exam related pressure took a toll on the girl. However we are probing all angles,” confirmed the API in-charge of Satpatti coastal police station, Harshvardhan Barwe. Further investigations are on.

House-breaking gang busted Jeweller, kingpin of the gang, indulged in thefts in Mumbai and invested the loot in social work, and built a hospital in his native village By Zuber Ansari

T

he Vile Parle cops have arrested a gang that confessed to the crime of having indulged in 43 house breaking thefts. The gang is master-minded by a jeweller, Sravanankumar Nadar, from Tamil Nadu along with one Krishnakumar Nadar and a driver, Jitu Tiwari, of Mumbai. When cops investigated the matter, they found that the first accused is a well-known and respected individual in Kanyakumari. In fact, he is also building a hospital. In January, the three accused broke open a software enginneer's house in Vile Parle and decamped with gold and cash worth over Rs.65 lakh. The cops swung into action and collected the data related to the concerned mobile phones and thus traced a Karnataka number used at the time of the crime to Sravankumar in Tamil Nadu. A police officer said, "We then did an inquiry about him with the locals and were shocked to find him to be a known and a rich personality. We caught him and he then took us to the other two accused". The two accused had rented a place each at Ghatkopar and Dharavi. Cops have recovered around Rs.40 lakh of cash and jewellery from the three since their arrested. The three have been taken to Tamil Nadu for further recovery. The three willbe in police custody till March 7.

e-TENDER NOTICE A view of a road in Ghatnandur near Ambejogai in Beed district which was the most affected. “The hailstorm in the wee hours of the morning took everyone by surprise. Tin roofs of houses have been blown away by gale force winds, leaving cattle dead. One woman from Wadavani village is reported to have been struck by lighting. Water has entered the Vaijanath sugar mill at nearby Pangri, damaging sugar stock and machinery. The hailstorm and winds have uprooted electricity poles and the en-

tire communication network has collapsed. The district administration has swung into action, but the distraught population is seeking urgent help for food and water”. Speaking to newspersons here, Khadse stated that the state government is yet to disburse the compensation announced for the last year's drought. He added that the government needs to waive off the agricultural loans of

the farmers, educational fees of students, and conduct panchanamas of the dead cattle as soon as possible. He added that even if the poll code is announced by the Election Commission of India, it still can announce relief for the affected families. BJP deputy leader of opposition in Lok Sabha, Gopinath Munde – who represents Beed constituency – and other party legislators, are touring the district.

8 charged with abduction of teenager acquitted by court By A Staff Reporter

E

ight persons, who were tried in connection with alleged abduction of a 17-year-old college boy from Navi Mumbai in 2010, have been acquitted by a court in Thane. Thane Additional Sessions Judge A.S. Waghwase found the accused not guilty after prosecution failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the purported crime was committed by them. They were set free on Monday on benefit of doubt. The accused were tried under sections 364(A), 387, 504 and 506 of the IPC. According to prosecutor Buleshwar Hinge, student Ashish Kanojia left his house in Nerul on August 7, 2010 for his college and never returned home. His parents searched for him and later filed a missing complaint with police. A day after, his father Ramtilak, a material supplier, received a call from the accused demanding Rs 1 crore ransom for his son's release. He thereafter received repeated calls from the accused for the ransom, which was finally settled at Rs 7 lakh.

MU engineers another blunder! Continued from pg 1 « fall in the ATKT category are perturbed, since they would have to reappear for the failed subjects along with the next semester's exams, and may stand to lose a year as there will not be enough time to study for both exams together. As per the Maharashtra Universities Act, 1994, the university has to declare the results within 45 days of the completion of the exams. On the other hand, as per varsity rules, if a student fails in a subject, he will have to appear for the ATKT exam which is conducted along with the next semester's exams. The seventh semester results were declared only yesterday, after 75 days. A student, on condition of anonymity said: “It has been over two and a half months and though MU has just declared our Semester VII results, it has released the

exam dates for the next semester to be held in May. This is a big burden for those among us who will fall in the ATKT category as such students will have to prepare for both exams in a short span of time.” Speaking to the ADC, Pradeep Sawant, MU senate member said: “ Due to this sloppy attitude of the varsity, the students may lose a year. MU has taken almost double the time required to declare the results, but is still dragging its feet. The Vice Chancellor should seriously look into this issue rather than letting students suffer.” Last year, the MU had introduced online assessment process for the engineering stream. The answer-sheets will be scanned and corrections will be carried out online. MU had stated that this process would make the assessment process quick for declaring the results in time, but in vain.

Ponder awhile… “Life's tragedy is that we get old to soon and wise too late.” – Benjamin Franklin

An unavoidable tragedy T

HE happenings in the Defence department are now being discussed as never before. They are all about sensitive issues which need not come to the notice of the public. It is desirable that there is utmost secrecy in the department. For instance, Pakistan now knows that one of our submarines had defective batteries and a tragedy has occurred. It now knows that the Defence department does not bother much about keeping the submarines in top condition. There can be absolutely no excuse for the occurrence of the tragedy in INS Sindhuratna. According to reports, there was thick smoke and fire and two officers were killed and some others injured. This tragedy could have been easily avoided. Three letters were written by the Navy – one after the other – about the need for replacing wornout batteries. There was no response from the Defence department. The battery is being manufactured in India and hence the difficulty about obtaining it does not arise. The question arises why the defence ministry did not replace the batteries immediately. What is to be noted is that since the last 12 years, not a single submarine has been added to the navy. We have old submarines – over 20 years old and it seems we have decided to have no more submarines. Pakistan is reported to have 20 submarines. Was not the Navy aware of the danger the crew is exposed to – thanks to unfit engine parts? They knew and they did act but got no response from the ministry. A citizen of India joins the defence forces, knowing that he has a chance to serve the country. He is aware of the risks involved. He considers it an honour to die for the country. His family bears the loss in case he dies – with the knowledge he has died for the country. What have the two naval officers died for? A defective battery has killed them. They have died because of the negligence of those in charge of defence of the country.

HIS is the year of the dynasty. The 2014 Lok Sabha polls will mark the launch of sons and heirs in parties across the political spectrum. That it was going to be Rahul Gandhi’s election was known in 2009 itself when the Gandhi scion was projected as the third face of the Congress trimurti. But five years later, Rahul has competition as ageing leaders of other family run parties prepare to hand over the leadership baton to their sons. Make no mistake, Junior’s voice is being heard by Papa. And it has thrown politics into turmoil. Old equations are making way for new ones as a younger, aggressive generation pushes for quick gains with pragmatic thinking. No more fuddy-duddy ideas, they seem to be admonishing their parents. It started with Ram Vilas Paswan’s son Chirag emerging as the chief interlocutor with the BJP on behalf of Papa’s LJP. Chirag did the negotiations, first with BJP leader Shahnawaaz Hussain and then with party president Rajnath Singh. He also did the television appearances and the press briefings, proving to be an articulate spokesperson for his party. But most importantly, Chirag prevailed on his 68 year old father that it was time to end the cold war with the BJP and ride the Modi wave to political relevance. A similar story is unfolding in the TRS which recently decided against a merger with the Congress although chief K. Chandrasekhara Rao had given his word to Sonia Gandhi. It seems KCR’s son and heir K.T. Rama Rao had a big hand in the decision. He was among those pushing the line that TRS should maintain an independent identity for better bargaining power after elections when everyone, including Narendra Modi, will be hunting for allies to form the next government. Father was hesitant because of the promise he had made to Sonia. But Junior insisted and got his way. Then there is Lalu Yadav’s son, Tejaswi, who is set to become more visible as Papa battles his conviction in the fodder scam case. He’s too young to contest in the upcoming election but if the political buzz is to be believed,

his was one of the voices Lalu listened to when he refused to compromise with Ram Vilas Paswan on the seat sharing arrangement. Although it sent Paswan into the BJP’s arms, Junior was more concerned about the long term. He wanted to send a strong message to Chirag for the future, that his RJD will call the shots in Bihar, not the LJP. In the south, DMK chief M Karunanidhi’s son M. Stalin is the new force to reckon within his party. And he’s indicated that he’s ready to boogie with Narendra Modi. With Jayalalithaa

with every possible gizmo to be in 24 x 7 contact with the boss, wherever he may be. The executive has taken four month’s leave from his job to help Modi out. But what seems to be upsetting the Delhi lot is that the man is completely apolitical and knows nothing about the BJP. He may be a management whiz but he’s certainly not a politician. Yet, he is more important that even BJP president Rajnath Singh who often receives messages from Gandhinagar through him. Like Rahul, Modi too seems to prefer to bypass the party and depend on his whiz kid aides from the corporate world.

s a game-changer move in the offing in UP? The Congress is making a desperate bid to seal a pre-poll alliance with BSP’s Mayawati. If it comes through, it could change the entire scenario in UP. A Congress-BSP pact is the one thing the BJP fears the most because it would bring Dalits and Muslims together to win anything between 40 and 60 seats of UP’s 80 seats. Mayawati is of course a tough negotiator. She is demanding a national alliance across the six states of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Uttarakhand and of course, UP. The Congress is not quite sure how much to concede to Mayawati because experience has shown that she has always gained at the expense of the national parties. First the BJP gave her a huge push by making her UP chief minister three times. Now a national alliance with the Congress could see the BSP gobbling up the party’s Dalit base in other states and help Mayawati realise her ambition of becoming a national leader. Interestingly, this time, the talks between Mayawati and the Congress are not being conducted through the usual suspects. Her right hand man in Parliament Satish Mishra and Sonia Gandhi’s key aide Ahmed Patel are not in the loop. Instead, low profile interlocutors who are not known to the general public are doing the talking.

Live simply, share time with those in need D

O not accumulate wealth while millions are hungry. Do not take as the aim of your life fame, profit, wealth, or sensual pleasure. Live simply and share time, energy, and material resources with those who are in need. Wealth (at this time) is a driver of society. And the accumulation of wealth empowers the accumulator. Money then becomes an extension of their intention. Better to empower an idea that serves the greater good through the accumulation and investment of wealth in the right areas than not. Providing necessities to the millions of unfortunate is only possibly through the deliberate and intelligent organisation of material resources. The best known ‘motivator’ for the deliberate and intelligent organisation of materials resources is money. That may change in the future, but it is what it is for now. The key here is that you must KNOW yourself before the accumulation of wealth. Otherwise you can fool yourself into believing you have good intentions until you acquire wealth and then squander it on sensual/ ego pleasure. This caution was expressed best by Lord Acton in a letter to Bishop Mandell Creighton in 1887: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” According to Lord Acton some great men were NOT bad men – those not corrupted by power deserve careful study. What you may

find is that the truly ‘great’ are first masters of themselves. They develop this self mastery through great self study/ awareness and adjustment. POLITICS: Do not use the Buddhist community for personal gain or profit, or transform your community into a political party. A religious community, however, should take a clear stand against oppression and injustice and should strive to change the situation without engaging in partisan conflicts. Politics is an amoral tool, it can be used for good or evil. It should not be seen as some-

ture suffering that may be caused. To preserve the happiness of others, respect the rights and commitments of others. Be fully aware of the responsibility of bringing new lives into the world. Meditate on the world into which you are bringing new beings. A clarification is needed: “Sexual expression should not take place without love and a long term commitment.” If only it were that simple. Love is not always distinguishable from lust. Lust can create the illusion of ‘we’ll be together forever’. In some religions or cultures where sex is only appropriate when married – people make a long term commitment to satisfy their lust. This is not done consciously, they don’t say to themselves: “I’m thing to avoid, but rather something to care- going to get married so I can satisfy my lust.” fully guide. If you transform an educated Instead they say something like, “I feel this incommunity into a force for good in the world credible chemistry with this person, I feel so – why not do it?

Maria gets Esther case solved 'ESTHER'S murderer nabbed' (ADC, Mar 4) is something about which the new police commissioner, Rakesh Maria, can be justifiably proud. He has had an immaculate record in the Crime Branch and surely knows how to go about the difficult job of crime detection and so it was no wonder that he chose one of his former colleagues in the branch, ACP Praful Bhosale, to investigate the case. And true to their reputation, the officers, who formed nine teams that scoured the whole state, have nabbed the alleged murderer.

Space crunch at SBI

RIDICULOUS: The first installment of Aamir Khan's popular show was an eyeopener, exposing the way the judicial system is mocked by criminals who roam about freely even after committing the worst crimes against women. THE first episode of 'Satyamev Jayate 2' on the issue of rape in the country presented by Bollywood actor Aamir Khan was magnificent and excellent and brought tears to the eyes of viewers while listening to the story of the unfortunate victim who is till date crying for justice in the court which has already taken many years with the accused moving freely and not bothered about the law, making a mockery of the judicial system. The episode exposed the working of the police and the investigation agencies who have made a mess of the case for the

benefit of the accused. I strongly feel that rape is a dangerous diseases which is increasing at an alarming rate across the country and which has made the life of the women a hell where the culprit goes scot-free and the victims suffer for life without justice. I am sure that after seeing this episode the people of the country will be united and fight against the rapists and make sure that the accused get the death sentence which would be a lesson for others who take women for granted and commit serious crimes on them. — Bhagwan Thadani, Mumbai

I'm presently in FYJC (Commerce). I want to do an MBA but am confused as to what to take up after my SYJC. What should I do to increase my chances of pursuing an MBA? - Seemin Shaikh After SYJC opt for the degree route and increase your knowledge by reading newspapers and business magazines, participating in extra-curricular activities in college, going beyond text-books for gaining additional insights, taking care of your health, looking out for part-time assignments or projects, honing your communication and presentation skills and so on. Invest the under-graduate years for an overall development in your personality as well as concepts and knowledge. I am a standard XI student. I want to pursue my career in animation.

“Dietary habits play an important role in students’ pre-exam routines. Students need to make sure that they eat sensible food i.e. food that is in its natural form like fruits, nuts and sprouts. They need to have balanced and normal foods, i.e. foods cooked at home and need to drink lots of water. Sugar laden foods and liquids and junk food need to be avoided at all costs as these foods are a major contributing factor for students gaining weight during exam time. Alongside proper dietary intake, students also need to exercise. Cycling yoga and breathing exercises help a lot as they help to increase focus and concentration of students.” Shobha Rajgopal, Lifestyle Counsellor and Nutritionist

time-table, it’s perfectly fine to study something else that they want to cover at that time. While studying and revising, it’s very essential that students take breaks and do activities that would not only calm them but also reinvigorate them mentally. Physical activities like walks and cycling and even casual light reading of magazines and books are very helpful for students to divert them from constant revising. At the same time students also need to realise that having good and sound sleep is a substantial contributor to their exam preparation and they need to have at least six to seven hours of sleep so that they can rejuvenate their minds and bodies amply.

If you have any queries for this column, contact us on education@afternoondc.in

I want to study Marine Biology in the US. How can I go about it? - Hina Most degrees in Marine Biology are earned at the Masters level or higher and usually require a Bachelor's degree in Biology, Zoology or another life science. Many schools now also offer Bachelor degrees in Marine Biology, but to be a ‘true’ Marine Biologist be sure to follow through and complete your Master's or Doctorate (PhD) degree. In colleges such as Stanford University and University of Miami, you can major in Marine Biology at the undergraduate level. Undergraduates in this major will develop an understanding of the biology of marine organisms and the biological and physical processes that affect these organisms, their populations, and their coastal and oceanic ecosystems. The major requires a foundation in the natural sciences, a rigorous core of marine biology courses and a unifying laboratory/field course that engages students more directly in the discovery process and in analyzing and interpreting data. A major in marine biology is an appropriate start for students who are seeking a career or graduate studies in marine biology and related biological disciplines, a career in fields such as marine conservation, or simply interested in the major to broaden their base of knowledge and experience in the biological sciences.

What work do environmental engineers undertake? Which colleges offer a good programme of environmental engineering in the US? - Kunal Environmental engineers are also called ecological engineers. Environmental engineering combines science and engineering for improving our natural environment,

reducing pollutants and providing better quality of air, water and land which is more suited for human consumption. Environmental engineers use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems. They are involved in efforts to improve recycling, waste disposal, public health, and water and air pollution control. They also address global issues, such as unsafe drinking water, climate change, and environmental sustainability. Environmental engineers have a broad spectrum of scope of work. Specific areas of work include: • Design and evaluation of erosion control systems • Systems and processes for management and utilization of wastes • Design and management of water control systems • Monitoring of Air quality, air emission measurement and air pollution • Hazardous Waste Management • Designing systems for Municipal and industrial water supplies • Wastewater treatment • Studying environmental impact of proposed construction projects. • Environmental management Some of the leading colleges in the US which offer an Engineering degree in Environmental Sciences are: University of California- Berkeley, University of MichiganAnn Arbour, Carnegie Mellon University, Cornell University and Stanford University.

TECHNOLOGY: THE DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD

W

By Piran Tarapore

hen technology boomed in the 18th century, kickstarted by the industrial revolution, the impact it would have on future generations was predicted. Today, we are completely surrounded by technology which makes our life seem so much easier. By the efforts of the government, technology has reached even the interiors of the nation and has gripped the lives of the rich and poor. Even people who live nowhere in the propinquity of urban areas, have now been encompassed with this ever increasing sphere of technological urbanization. However, this puts forth an impor-

tant question. Is this really a blessing or is there another side to it? Like most things, technology too, is a double edged sword. Just as technology can help a person with his work, allow him to extract useful information in the minimum amount of time, it also provides information to extremists who use it to defeat humanity. But this, I suppose, was expected, if not foreseen. It is up to us to ensure the right use of the means available to us, and also progress exponentially in this sector in the upcoming years. In the words of the former Prime Minister of the nation, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, "Humans and technology are interelated. Ensure that humans overcome technology and we shall reach the pinnacle of success. And if technology overpowers humans, we shall find ourselves in a corner regretting all we did

ill yesterday, Ijust thought that the crime of rape is committed by a rapist, but today, after watching 'Satyamev Jayate' I have realized how wrong I have been. The rapist rapes the victim, but it is our law, justice and medical system that actually keeps those bruises and wounds fresh. The police should be a little Yahya more sensitive Bootwala, when it comes to National a rape case. College Asking victims questions like where they were touched and how it was done, is a hit on the morality of women. Why are FIRs of rape not registered easily, and why are rape victims asked not to file one? The police must understand that it is their duty to ensure that criminals are punished, not victims. Moving on to our medical institutes, medical textbooks apparently have a line stating that a rape victim should be viewed with suspicion. I am actually stunned that future doctors are learning it and will use it in their professions. A standardized method to check rape is being awaited. Thirdly, our legal system is also to be blamed. Lawyers who fight a case against the rape victim, are doing an amazing job! Thanks to them only 3 per cent of the total rape victims get justice, but I am sure, that they will bring it down to 0 per cent. I know this is how they make a living, but they should realise that their living is killing someone. They should stop being

Somaiya celebrates Science Day I

ET-KJSIEIT celebrated Science Day recently at Somaiya college ground. The theme for this event was 'Tech Vs Tech-Health' which promised to bring in a beautiful blend of technology in complementing the cons of existing gadgets/products keeping human health in consideration. This event was held in the presence of Hemant Iyer, Rajesh Bhatt (both from IET Mumbai Local Network), Prof. Borole (from VJTI), Dr. Sunita Patil and Geeta Katkar (both MIET, Mumbai Local network). Approximately 120 students and 20 staff members were present for this event as it was an instructional day in the college. They had a round of street plays from four colleges (two teams with 11 members each from K.K. Wagh, Nashik, one team of Khalsa college and one team of KJSIEIT) with topics related to the theme. There was a filler round in between each street play with tech-quizzes and the winners were given gift vouch-

ers. Following it was a short group discussion wherein students and the audience brought ahead the pros and cons of technology and highlighted the take-aways of each street play. They also had a rich and varied art display showcasting materials that brought out the essence of science day in an innovative way. The materials ranged from demo/working models, paintings, posters, collage, rangoli etc. There was no winner or runnerup concept, so every participant was given certificate and memento. Small snacks and refreshments were also provided to all. The charity box and registration amount collected as a result of this event will be handed over to Smile Foundation. Overall, the event was conducted in the positive spirit of social awareness and the need for implementation of technology towards socially viable products was highlighted.

advanced applications. The phone has a screen size of five inches, a primary camera of 12 megapixels and a secondary camera of two megapixels. Besides, Micromax provides its users with all the basic features like wifi connectivity etc. The phone has an internal memory of 1GB and external memory expandable upto 32 GB. However, the one problem a lot of users have been facing is regarding the external SD card, which gets disconnected very often and is sorted only once you reboot the phone. All in all, at around Rs.14,600, it is a pretty decent deal considering the price is much lesser than what you would end up paying for similar features in other high-end brands.

f money was the only determinant in keeping employees happy and satisfied, giant firms which pay hefty sums in pay packages would never have lost talent to attrition. More and more companies today are waking up to the need of keeping their employees happy. A content workforce is not only loyal to the company but is also more productive. If pay packages are not drastically different, a number of professionals prefer to settle for companies which have a good work culture, employee friendly policies and offer them chances to grow. After all who doesn’t want a peaceful work life where work related challenges are plenty and your employer also knows how to take care of you. Even small gestures of goodwill and concern on a superior’s part can go a long way in buying loyalty from the employee. No wonder, in an age where attrition rates are rising and people are in constant search for greener pastures, more and more companies are devising their policies to better suit the convenience of their

There were those who could suck the life out of you and there were those who could give you the spirit to fight a hundred day war hungry. One anecdote I would like to single out: There was a professor who was never late or absent in 23 years of his engineering career. Another one, dear to me had this unimaginable distinction of having 100 per cent attendance in her lectures. Studies were both tedious and interesting. The atmosphere at my college was every entrepreneur's dream, we had our own set of struggle'srunning around for permissions, at the same time we had our freedom to pursue endeavours which were not a part of the curriculum. I have seen apps coming up in college and robots running around obeying their masters and cars ready to win races and laurels. We had our own set of toppers who used to study and knew every topic on the tip of their tongues and we had our own 'ranchos' who used to believe in “success ke pichey mat bhago excel-

Another place cherished by me would be Amrut Sagar at Hill road, Bandra, again on the whims of my best friend. We used to have noodles dosa. The noodles would be for me and cheese and the dosa for her. The dragon noodles would be hunger respite for my project group. Mind you I mean quantity at less rate. I am always thankful to God for the friends He gave me. I would like to talk about a bunch of five people I had the pleasure to be associated with. They were the teachers of my life, they taught me ‘Think less, work more’. One of them, Shruti Gupta played the role of mother-away-fromhome for me.

I always believe that hostel life provided dexterity to my life and taught me to smile in the harshest situations of life. I do miss the half burnt maggi and an instant civil war like situation waging at the mere display of sweets or home cooked food. Pranks – I had loads of them in tow. The initial ones which started in the first year was loss of a mobile phone. Four years ago, a mobile was a dear thing to everybody. If it is an expensive one then you cannot express the importance attached to it. My friends used to hide my phone and occasionally switch it on for me to still have a hope that I would get it back. The other most common heart attack causing pranks for engineering students is ‘result aaayaa’. I loved to play it on my topper friend Mayfair. She literally skipped a heart beat

‘Money does not buy happy employees’ employers. A number of companies are also offering flexibility when it comes to work demands so that employees are better able to take care of their families as well. For example, companies today are also introducing the concept of paternity leaves for new fathers. Some employers are also recognising the need to offer better options to working mothers. Till a few years back, a 90-day maternity leave was all a woman turned mother would get. Many

women had to sacrifice their careers to take care of their children. This was also a loss of talent for the companies. Today, the new breed of HR policy makers are offering flexible options like a few days work-from-home set up for mothers, some offer crèche or baby sitting services for their mother employees. It is a no brainer that in order to retain employees, organisations must give a serious thought to what is driving employee disenchantment and what would drive employee commitment. Today’s managers are dealing

with a dynamic and ambitious new generation. There is a renewed focus on human resources and the R&R management. Just pushing up salaries is no longer a sustainable long-term action. The need of the hour is a more strategic, creative solutioning. It makes an employee happy if her loyalty and dedication is recognised. It makes her all the more happy if it is rewarded occasionally. Today companies are moving beyond age-old HR practices and entering into the new domain of organised Rewards & Recognition culture. The new-age creative solutions have made R&R policies more organised and institutionalised. If you are recognising your employee’s contribution, offer them rewards that would thrill them, rather than gifting a notebook and pen bearing the company signature, or a bag or a shield with a company label. A creative, wellplanned sophisticated R&R programme can ensure that the employees are offered a choice from a menu of rewards to attract and sustain interest. Today, employees are driven by the desire to reach new horizons and grown as individual performers which working for a company.

It reminds me of her mother Ashwini, who used to radiate wads of love towards me in return of nothing. She was even smiling during the death of her husband which shows the grit and determination she had in her. One of the embarrassing moments I faced was when I adorned a night kurti perfect enough to be a traditional day attire. I was made fun of by every person I knew in my college. I finally gave in and left for home just after half the day. I would say education has ruined me to the level I couldn’t express. I reason with everything in life which makes it hard to enjoy stuff. Education has the innate quality of telling you that you should reason everything. If it makes you happy, then why are you happy and if it is making you sad, obviously why is it making you sad. I am too young to give advice but every person should get his child the right set of education. More importantly - the education he or she wants but with the heady mix of what is right for him/her. Education is a must. Children must be encouraged to take up a field they enjoy and like.

Such motivated workers will not be able to stick around in a company that fails to push their learning curve and offer new challenges and paths to growth. Particularly, the young and talented employees of the day look for job options that would give them plenty of exposure in their fields and augment their curriculum vitae. There are plenty of employees today who have chosen to move from reputed big companies to smaller new ones as the latter offer more exposure and learning and give them ample responsibilities. So if you are an employer, you must ensure that each and every employee of yours gets new challenges every day and feel they are growing. Shifting the workers between different verticals now and then and occasionally giving them projects that are normally outside their purview will keep their interest levels intact. The day an employee knows that she will not learn anything new in your company, she will decide to move on. Keeping employees happy is crucial. The next decade of economic growth in India is certain to see the rise of a new more structured rewards and recognition policy.

How does one rely on the opinions on blog posts from employees, for this could be marred by personal interest and fear?

start ‘Jobinsight’ and how did you come up with the concept of career intelligence? Having gone through the process of college, coaching classes, placements, CAT, GMAT etc., we have experienced what most others have. The problem we realised is with the lack of awareness and guidance students get in terms of career planning and following their passion and strengths. This ‘one size fits all’ model has ended up being the root cause for unsuccessful, confused or even unhappy careers amongst many. Jobinsight is our effort to solve that issue and help people make well informed decisions. We give users company reviews, information about the industry, growing trends; including some books they should read and information regarding the major functions and roles within each industry. We supplement this with our blogs. Our blogs deal with workplace issues and speak about professionals - how they went about choosing their careers; what is the most exciting part about their career; mistakes they’ve made, and more.

SAMARPAN SCHOOL CELEBRATES SPORTS DAY

E

cole Mondiale World School had organised the Annual Sports meet of Samarpan School for Autistic Disorder Spectrum with actor Varun Dhawan as a chief guest. From making props, t-shirts and caps to finding an available chief guest, every member of the team was hard at work, giving every aspect of the event 100 per cent dedication. The theme of Sports Day this year was 'National Symbols of India' and all the races that students participated in focused on one particular symbol or emblem of Indian culture, ranging in the tiger to the national emblem, as well as peacock and lotus. The props were not easy to make, however the team had an amazing time working collaboratively to ensure that everything went well. Students of Ecole Mondiale World School truly learned the essence of hard work and how it pays off. The smiles on the Autistic children made them realise that whatever they do is worthwhile if

the intentions are correct and the focus is maintained. No matter how much hard work was required, and how many hours of watching TV or relaxing one had to give up, the end product was worth it. Actor Varun Dhawan was extremely happy to be part of the Annual Sports Day and ensured that every student had the time of his or her life and had a smile on their face at the end. Overall, the event was an enriching experience giving us food for thought.

CCE Finland to train schools and B.Ed colleges in Mumbai free of charge on pedagogy and methods of teaching; concludes workshop on creativity in education for 175 attendees in Mumbai in association with Podar Education Network

H

undred and seventy five teachers, principals, B.Ed educators and NGOs from over 26 institutions from all over Mumbai, and also far-flung locations like Noida and Kerala, turned up for a creativity in education course, designed by the Council for Creative Education (CCE) Finland in collaboration with Podar Education Network. Pavan Podar, Trustee, Podar Education network, welcomed all the educators to the conference and emphasised, “This initiative of ours, is to help educators create a seamless transition of pedagogy involving creativity in education from KG to K12. The role of art, music, innovation and their role in fostering creativity will be shared during the one day workshop.” Also present were Gaurav Podar, MD, Podar Education Network, Swati Popat Vats, President Podar Education Network, all the Podar Education Network Principals, Avnita Bir of the CBSE Board, Mrs. Fernandes of the ICSE Board and Dr.Lulla of the IB Board as well as Mintu Sinha, Principal, Bombay Teachers Training College, and educationist Swaroop Sampat Vats. Why CCE Finland? Its globally accepted, that Finland has one of the most admired education programs in the world, where they do not teach reading and writing till the age of 6.

As per a Pearson Survey in 2012, Finland and South Korea had topped the list of 40 developed countries with the best education systems. The rankings were calculated based on various measures, including international test scores, graduation rates between 2006 and 2010, and the prevalence of higher education seekers. Interestingly, high ranking countries tend to offer teachers higher status in society and have a "culture" of education. Heramb Kulkarni, Head of Strategy for CCE Finland said, "We are looking to train schools and B.Ed Colleges on a

histling Woods International and the Canadian Embassy hosted a roundtable discussion. His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada chaired the roundtable where the future of audio-visual co-production between India and Canada was discussed. Over 30 members from the Indian Film and Media industry passionately exchanged views with the 16 member delegation from Canada at the Whistling Woods Campus. The idea was to facilitate creative and intellectual exchange between the two countries. The group spoke of how Indo-Canadian diasporas identify with Indian films. The latent connect to their original motherland is a potential angle to be explored. The possibilities of increasing film trade through co-production initiatives was also discussed. The aim of the discussion was to broaden the bilateral relations between India and Canada. Filmmaker & Chairman of Whistling Woods, Subhash Ghai said, “Being an international film school, Whistling Woods has always striven to strike a balance between Indian and World Cinema. The co-production treaty is a path-breaking move towards exchange of concepts, technology, creativity and intellect. Over

the years, our institute has grown to become an incubation centre where the next generation filmmakers are nurtured. The discussion with the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada is one more step towards building the Indian Media and Entertainment Industry.” Joining the Governor general, other delegates who were present included Stewart Beck, High Commissioner of Canada to India, The Honourable Deepak Obhrai, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and for International Human Rights, select members of parliament, Peter MacArthur, Director General, South, Southeast Asia and Oceania, Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada, Admiral (Retd) Nirmal Verma, High Commissioner of India to Canada amongst others.

non-commercial basis here in India, and this workshop is just a movement in that direction”. Swati Popat Vats, President Podar Education Network added, “In Finland, being a teacher is the chosen profession as teachers are paid on par with doctors. In India, sadly teaching is rarely the first choice of all the people who end up as teachers. The CCE is a collaborative organization which provides customized educational solutions designed by Finnish experts, and we hope that they will give all our educators here food for thought.”

LET’S VOTE

With an agenda to make a difference to society, the recent initiative taken up by eight Rotaract Clubs from R.I.D. 3140, was the all important cause of voting. The political fabric of India is on the precipice, with the Lok Sabha elections coming up in less than two months. Rotaractors wanted to go beyond just complaining about the problems that plague our nation. Corruption, filth, crumbling infrastructure, poverty, illiteracy and the degrading condition of women; all these are protests of every citizen, but do we ever stop and think about what role we play in this mix? The most important choice we make for the future of our nation is the one vote we must cast. Through Let’s Vote they have taken up numerous activities to promote what we call 'Taking Responsibility'. After spreading the message in various colleges and corporate offices, they approached the aam aadmi to get his views on the current voting scenario. They have collected over 1,000 pledges from people who will take responsibility by casting their vote. They also organized a Let’s Vote campaign at Dadar station, the hub of Mumbai, Dadar Station on February 27. With thousands passing every minute, it was an ideal place to remind people of our most important right – the right to vote. Armed with posters, pledge sheets and useful information on how to register for a voter’s ID, we achieved our goal to make everyone aware of their responsibility.

GIVING YOU A HIGH?

The movie Highway released recently and had moviegoers quite intrigued with its choice of star cast, Director and its music. Imtiaz Ali has helmed rom-coms earlier and delved into something quite different from his usual choice of scripts. Alia Bhatt who hit stardom with her debut 'Student of the Year' took quite a risk with this non glam look. We asked youngsters what they thought of the movie and if it was a worthy risk for the Director and leading lady. It is quite surprising as to why Alia Bhatt in her second outing took a risk with a subject like Highway. The way the actress comes across after her first movie, one must have felt she was a misfit. However, the maturity shown by her in this movie speaks a lot of what is in store for her especially her narratives with Randeep Hooda. Hooda, a known under-rated actor puts on an impressive display with his native accent and plays true to the subject. The cinematography is well tuned with the music by Rahman. Overall, its a well treated subject and a different product contrary to the season of rom-coms. Sherman Melroy, Executive

I found this movie to be extremely boring and slow. Randeep Hooda was good but I don't know why everyone was so busy praising Alia! She was tied up in the first half of the movie and didn't have any acting at all. Apart from the scenic background and good music I didn't find the story praiseworthy at all! I was disappointed with Imtiaz's direction and choice of script. I couldn't wait to get out of the theatre! It was a boring movie. Divya Saha, Adventure Tourism

I'm not sure if everyone would like this movie. It is definitely not a masala movie and won't appeal to people looking to watch a typical commercial flick. This movie has great music by A.R. Rahman. The music is soulful and is a great backdrop for the scenic locales in the movie. I thought both actors were great and while it is a bit slow, it's different. I'm not sure how well this movie will do commercially but it's definitely not a let down and kudos to Imtiaz as well as Alia for taking a worthy risk. Aditi Saha, Economics Student

our first job is an important stepping stone in your life. Not only the monetary gains change your life, but what you learn there, what you do there will mould you from a student to an experienced professional. So you searched for jobs from job portals, references, classifieds and even managed to crack it. But remember, getting a job doesn’t guarantee you success. No matter how big or small the company is, your attitude towards the job, the workplace and your work can make all the difference. So if you are wondering what should you do or what should you avoid doing at your first job, read on...

Your first job

PREPARATION Firstly, preparation is the key to a successful start to a new job. Essentially, you are on trial for the first few months. So it’s very important that you set a right image of yourself in the employers from the moment you enter the office on your first day. Thus before joining the office, use the internet for a better cause than social networking and go through all the possible information you can get access to, about your workplace. Take a look at their website and check out what work culture they have, their company policies, their clients, their previous work and so on. If your company doesn’t have a website, call the office a few days before your joining date and try gathering as much information as you can. This will help you a lot in understanding the work since the first day. Also it will help you refrain from being clueless about the place and work when you join there.

underdressed to work depending upon the field you are in. If you are working in the corporate world, you are expected to be in formals. If you are in the media industry, your work-type determines what you are supposed to wear. You can be expected to be in blazers, formals or you can even have the freedom to come in your pajamas. What’s important is where you draw the line. The most important thing is to appear presentable because if you are ignorant towards your appearance, you can be thought of being ignorant towards work as well!

BE COURTEOUS AND FRIENDLY Also be courteous and friendly and try knowing as many people as you can at work regardless of what rank they are at. Don’t get too personal like their love life or things between theirs partners. But try gaining knowledge about what they PERSONAL HYGIENE AND DRESSING The way you take care of your personal do, what responsibilities their job hygiene and dressing, says a lot about involves, what qualities their job you. Never ignore personal hygiene. Also, requires and so on. This will help you dress smartly. Don’t be overdressed or learn other aspects of your job and give

you a better understanding of it. ASK QUESTIONS Ask questions that are relevant to the tasks that are assigned to you. Don’t assume things. If you don’t understand anything, ask questions till all your doubts are cleared. And be honest about how you feel. If you aren’t honest about what you feel about some work, the problems, when they arise, you will just fester and festering does nobody any good. Feel free to talk about how you feel, be open and forthright about what you feel. MOST IMPORTANT: ENJOY WHATEVER YOU DO! Have fun at work. I really mean that. Don’t go to work or as if it is drudgery. No doubt, there will be times when work is annoying, but there will also be some great times. Just brace yourself for an enjoyable roller-coaster ride! Just go ahead, take the plunge, grab your dreams and conquer the world.

When a last-ditch effort was made by Roy pleading against custody, the bench said, "We want concrete proposal. You give us today or tomorrow". The court said it will hear his plea on March 11. At the outset, Roy apologised before the bench for not complying with its order and assured that its order would be followed by him and sought more time for refunding money to investors.

Reiterating its earlier stand with regard to direct repayment to a bulk of investors, the group said Sebi has been asking for more money for the last 15 months despite having refunded only about Rs.1 crore from the Rs 5,120

crore already deposited with the regulator. "Hence, Sebi has balance amount of approximately Rs 5,619 crore (including interest earned amount)," the proposal said. Still, it said Saharas propose to furnish bank guarantees for a total sum of Rs 22,500 crore, while the Sebi can immediately proceed with sale of properties whose titles have been already handed over to it by the group. The step-by-step proposal, consisting of broadly ten points, further said Sebi would have to stop the sale of properties once it gets the bank guarantees and the money collected from such sale would have to returned to Sahara.

Enhanced Possibility Of An El NiĂąo Condition In 2014

By A Business Reporter

I

nternational climate researchers are predicting enhanced possibility of an El NiĂąo in 2014. The condition, which occurs at irregular intervals of 2-7 years, weakens the Asian monsoon, often causing drought in north-west and central India and heavy rainfall (or even floods) in the North-east. â&#x20AC;&#x153; In the last decade, it was one of the factors responsible for two of Indiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most severe monsoon failure (2002 and 2009). There is a fair degree of uncertainty associated with these early forecasts, so it will be too premature to conclude that an El NiĂąo will occur in 2014. And, even the occurrence of an El NiĂąo does not necessarily imply monsoon failure in India. If however, the monsoon were to get adversely affected this year, Indiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy could grow by 5.2% in 2014-15 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; much lower than our current forecast of 6%. In addition, CPI inflation, with nearly 50% weight of agriculture-related articles, will rise above the current forecast of 8% in 2014-15. In its fight against weak growth and high inflation, the last thing that Indiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy needs is monsoon failure,

which could drive up food inflation growth and intolerably high inflation as well as weaken GDP growth,â&#x20AC;? in the past 2 years,â&#x20AC;? concludes Crisil. says Crisil Research. So does the El NiĂąo necessarily imply a failure of the monsoon in India? And what happens to growth and inflation if the monsoon does fail in 2014? Lower GDP growth In an Opinion piece CRISIL ReAs it combats weak growth and search examined two dimensions of high inflation, the last thing that the El NiĂąo phenomenon.

By A Business Reporter lthoughâ&#x20AC;? the reform process in the corporate bond market has been encouraging, the implementation of reforms has proceeded slowly. Companies continue to finance their investments through private placements and bank loans rather than through public issues and corporate bonds despite policies implemented to encourage retail and institutional participation, to streamline the issuance process and to create new markets,â&#x20AC;? says a just released RBI DRG Study titled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Study of Corporate Bond Market in India: Theoretical and Policy Implicationsâ&#x20AC;?. The main objective of the study was to trace the reforms which have been put in place during the last decade in the corporate bond market in India and consequent developments. According to it, the analysis indicates that among the various factors that have influenced development of corporate bond market, the growth of the Government bond market has had positive influence on the development of the corporate bond market in India as in the case of other countries such as South Korea. The study believes that other factors such as the size of the economy, openness, size of the stock market and institutional factors like corruption have had little or no impact on the development of the corporate bond market. According to the peck-

An El NiĂąo occurs when equatorial Pacific waters become unusually warm. It can change ocean and wind currents across the globe, wreaking havoc on the climate. More pertinently for India, El NiĂąo shifts rainfall patterns and can weaken or delay the Asian monsoon.

Retail Investors Not Attracted To Corporate Bond Market A

BUSINESS

ing order theory, profitable firms tend to finance through internal sources first and then access external sources. Among external sources, companies tend to finance with debt or issue of corporate bonds first and then equity. Companies in India, however, tend not to follow the pecking order theory and have instead depended more on external sources rather than on internal sources. Among the external sources, bank loans seem to dominate the borrowings for these companies. One of the reasons for the bank finance being preferred by corporations is due to the prevalence of cash credit system in banks in which the cash management of the corporations is actually done by the banks. This indicates that the corporate bond market still has a long way to go before becoming a viable source for companies to finance their investments. The retail investorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; presence in the corporate bond market in India is still shallow despite specific reforms, such as, reducing the size of trading lots and the recent increase in foreign investorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limits in the corporate bond market. According to the study, India needs to explore innovative ways to attract retail investors. There is scope for further improvements in certain areas, such as, rationalising the stamp duty structure across the country and fixing stamp duties based on tenor and issuance value to encourage public offerings of corporate debt.

fore, not only pull down GDP growth but could also stoke food inflation. Higher inflation and challenge to monetary policy A weaker monsoon could set off another spiral of poor rainfall leading to lower agriculture output, sharper hikes in minimum support prices (MSPs) and higher food inflation. Droughts in the past â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 2002 and 2009 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; severely affected agriculture output and sent food prices soaring. For instance, in 2009-10, agriculture output only expanded 0.8% whereas food inflation (measured by the wholesale price index) rose to 15.3%. Integral to our current forecast is the assumption of a normal monsoon, due to which we expect inflation to decline significantly in 2014-15. We expect the consumer price index (CPI) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the new infla-

tion anchor for the Reserve Bank of India â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to fall to 8.5% from around 10.0% in 2013-14. Current trends of declining food inflation suggest that inflation could fall further and end up at 8.0% for 2014-15. On the other hand, if the monsoon fails, inflation can touch double digits and challenge monetary policy. A sharp and sustained decline in inflation, particularly food inflation, is critical for monetary policy to be in a position to support growth. In 2012-13, food inflation (as measured by the consumer price index) was high at 11.9% and has stayed around this level in 2013. Only in the month of January 2014 it declined to 9.9%. The RBI aims to bring down CPI to 8% by January 2015. This is only possible if the downward momentum in food inflation continues for which a normal monsoon in 2014 is critical.

Mutual Fund Houses To Approach SEBI On Maruti-Suzuki Deal By A Business Reporter

T

he Stand-off between Maruti Suzuki India and its mutual fund investors seems to be worsening as these institutional shareholders are now planning to approach Sebi after the car maker failed to address their concerns. The seven fund houses, including ICICI Prudential MF, Reliance MF and UTI MF, may again approach Maruti Suzuki India Ltd (MSIL), and also its Japanese parent firm Suzuki Motor

Corporation, over the proposed Gujarat project, sources said. Fund houses are planning to approach SEBI in a day or two with regard to their concerns over a proposed deal to transfer a Gujarat plant by MSIL to its parent firm Suzuki Motor Corp, they added. These seven fund houses together hold 3.93% stake in MSIL, while 6.93% stake is held by state-run LIC, which has also sought certain clarifications from the company on the Gujarat plant matter. Japan-based

Suzuki Motor Corp last month had decided to take over the setting up of a plant in Gujarat, proposed by subsidiary MSIL. The parent company would invest in the plant through wholly-owned unit Suzuki Motor Gujarat Pvt Ltd, which will manufacture vehicles exclusively for MSIL. Mutual funds are opposing Suzuki's move to make the proposed Gujarat unit its wholly-owned subsidiary as the deal would transform MSIL into a distribution company from a manufacturing one.

International Boxing Association terminates India, says officebearers damaging sport

L

AUSANNE (SWITZERLAND): Furious with the current logjam in the suspended Indian Boxing Federation, the International Boxing Association has terminated the IBF from its fold stating that the current set of office-bearers are "damaging the image, reputation and interest" of the sport. In a tersely-worded statement, the AIBA said it is not in a position to make a "proper" judgment on how to handle India's case after receiving conflicting communications from various stakeholders. The boxers and coaches will, however, continue to remain unaffected by the development and can participate in international events under the AIBA flag till the time the crisis is unresolved. "It is with much regret that the International Boxing Association (AIBA) Executive Committee (EC) has decided to end any official relationship with its current suspended member, the Indian Amateur Boxing Federation (IABF) after an extensive evaluation and assessment of all issues surrounding the sport of boxing in India," the world body said in its latest missive. AIBA President Ching Kuo Wu said the IBF is unlikely to be re-recognised till the time a new set of officials take charge after fresh elections, the screening of candidates for which would be done by the world body. "As AIBA President and on behalf of the entire boxing family, I am expressing my deepest regret and sad- Bad times continue for Indian sport as the Indian Boxing Federation is suspended ness that we had to make this indefinitely which would mean the Indian pugilists like Vijender Singh [in pic] would not compete under the national flag but under the AIBA flag. decision," stated Dr Wu.

Unilateral termination unfair: IBF President

AIBA has always regarded India as one of the most important members of its family, but it has become impossible for us to bear the hard feelings, the pain and suffering the boxers as well as the boxing family in India had to go through under the past and recent leadership which has also been damaging the image, reputation and interest of our sport in the country. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; AIBA President Ching Kuo Wu

was looking to get clean officials in the IBF after fresh elections. The IBF was suspended for "possible manipulation" in elections. "It is believed that the only way to get the sport of boxing back on track in India would be for it to be left in the hands of trustful, clean and honest people who love boxing and to give the opportunity to any group of people with passion and love for our sport to submit applications for the establishment of a new National Federation. AIBA will however not tolerate any governmental or sports authority interference in this process," AIBA said. "Based on the reasons set out above and in accordance with article 18.2 of the AIBA Statutes, the IABF is now provisionally excluded from AIBA Membership as of today. The AIBA EC will make a final decision and rehabilitate a National Federation for boxing in India as soon as it deems that it has found the right group of people who will support the principles of AIBA in terms of ethics and fairness and who care primarily about the boxers and our beloved sport and not about their personal interests," it added. The AIBA congress is scheduled to be held from November 8 to 15 in Jeju Islands, South Korea. AIBA also hopes that the IOA will give its full cooperation until AIBA approves a new National Federation for the sake of the sport of boxing in India. "AIBA will now wait for requests by any organisation or person to submit an application and once contacted, full guidelines for the new application process will be given," the body stated.

29 What next for terminated boxing federatioon?

NEW DEL HI: The International Boxing Association's decision to terminate India from its fold is set to be a blessing in disguise for the IBF which would now be forced to conduct fresh elections, something that the present set of office-bearers had been adamantly resisting. The decision to terminate IBF has, in fact, come as a shot in the arm for the antiAbhay Chautala faction which will seek the AIBA's permission to be a part of the new federation which would be set up under the watchful gaze of the world body. The Indian Boxing Federation (IBF) was suspended in December 2012 and was instructed to hold a fresh election as the world body felt that the polls held back then in September were possibly manipulated. But the officials running the Indian body turned a deaf ear to repeated warnings by the AIBA, insisting that the ones in office -- President Abhishek Matoria and Secretary General Rajesh Bhandari -- would eventually be recognised. Much to their dismay, the AIBA has hardened its stand and taken matters into its own hands by deciding "to give the opportunity to any group of people with passion and love for our sport to submit applications for the establishment of a new National Federation." This opportunity is set to be latched on by the group of state units which has been opposing the former IBF President Chautala. "The membership rights of India are now gone. The IBF will have no representation in the AIBA but the good thing is that now the AIBA will itself handle the entire situation. There will be direct correspondence between AIBA and those wanting a change. This way, a clean set of office-bearers would take charge," a source told PTI. The faction opposing Chautala, whose brother-in-law Abhishek Matoria took over as President in the ill-fated 2012 elections, comprises more than 20 of the 35 IBF units. This faction has made a small committee headed by West Bengal Unit chief Asit Banerjee and has been communicating with the AIBA. The last meeting of this group took place on February 23 in Guwahati. "We will write to AIBA very soon and seek their permission for calling a meeting to amend the constitution to make it compliant with the AIBA statute besides fixing a date for fresh IBF elections," an official said.

South Africa great Graeme Smith calls time on international career

Graeme Smith leaves the field for the final time in test cricket. His stay at the crease was however short-lived as he was dismissed for three runs by Mitchell Johnson.

C

APE TOWN: South African Graeme Smith, international cricket's longestserving captain, sprang a shock as he announced he would retire from all international cricket after the current third Test against Australia at Newlands. The 33-year-old -- whose longtime team-mate Jacques Kallis retired from test cricket in December though he wants to remain part of the one day side -had said only on Friday that he still had things to achieve in international cricket. However, after another batting failure in the present series, he made just five in the first innings on Monday he decided it was time to call it a day and told his team-mates of his decision. "This has been the most difficult decision I have ever had to make in my life. It's a decision that I have

been considering since my ankle surgery in April last year," Smith said yesterday. "I have a young family to consider, and I felt that retiring at Newlands would be the best way to end it because I have called this place home since I was 18 years old." Smith captained South Africa in 108 Test matches, including the present match, over 11 years. He also captained a World XI against Australia in Sydney in 2005. His total of 109 Test captaincies is 16 more than the previous record held by Allan Border of Australia. He has captained South Africa to 53 wins, beating Australian Ricky Ponting's record of 48 wins as a Test captain. Under his leadership, South Africa lost 27 matches and drew 27, excluding the current Test. His shock announcement

came after he told journalists at his pre-Test press conference on Friday he had no plans to retire. "There are still things I want to achieve in the game," said Smith, who when he first led the side, against Bangladesh in 2003, was the third youngest captain in Test history. Under his leadership South Africa rose to become the number one team in Test cricket. In 38 series of two matches or more he has had 22 series wins and seven losses, with nine drawn. South Africa have not been beaten in a series since Australia beat them in 2008/09 - although they are in danger of defeat in the current third Test in a series which is tied at one-all. Smith's record includes two away series wins against both England and Australia - a feat achieved by no other captain.

By his own admission it took time for him to mature as captain after being one of the youngest players in the squad when he was appointed. When he was offered the captaincy his father, Graham, tried to dissuade him, arguing that he would be better qualified for the job when he had gained more experience. Smith, though, had no hesitation in accepting. "I had wanted the job since I was 13 and I honestly believed I could do it," he said soon after his appointment. "It's been an incredibly special ride," he said last season on the eve of his 100th test as captain. "It hasn't always been easy. There have been some incredibly tough times. I've had to grow to come through those times and to start to enjoy success and to feel comfortable in the position and in myself."

BOOM BOOM AFRIDI Afridi's blitzkrieg takes Pakistan to the finals, as India loses back-door entry to stay in competition Chasing a mammoth 327 to win, Shehzad laid the foundation with his fifth ODI century as the elegant righthander put on 97 run with Mohammad Hafeez (52) for the opening wicket. Shehzad started patiently giving Hafeez the most of the strikes as the Pakistani allrounder cruised to his 20th ODI halfcentury from 43 balls. Pakistan lost the key wickets of Hafeez and skipper Misbah-ul-Haq, who was bowled by Shakib in successive overs, but Shehzad ensured that they did not lose momentum as he put on another crucial partnership of 105 with Fawad Alam.

By Tapan Mohanta

M

IRPUR: Pakistan pulled off a thrilling threewicket victory over hosts Bangladesh to storm into the finals of the Asia Cup cricket tournament, completely knocking India out of the title race. Opener Ahmed Shehzad blasted a 123-ball 103 to set the foundation for a record chase but it was Shahid Afridi's blistering 59 off 25 balls which helped Pakistan set up a summit clash against Sri Lanka. With this victory, Pakistan grabbed four points to aggregate 13 with the help of three victories in four matches. India, on the other hand, are currently with four points and even a win against Afghanistan today won't be enough for Virat Kohli's men to reach the finals. Mohammad Hafeez (52) and Fawad Alam (74) too blasted scintillating half-centuries to help Pakistan overhaul Bangladesh's record score of 326 for 3 in their stipulated 50 overs at the Shere Bangla National Stadium here. For Bangladesh, Mominul Haque (2/37) was the highest wicket taker, while Shakib Al Hasan, Abdur Razzak and Mahmudullah scalped one each. Earlier, Bangladesh feasted on a below bowling and fielding effort from Pakistan to pile up their highest-ever ODI total of 326 for three. While opener Anamul Haque build the foundation with a patient 100 off 132 balls with six fours and four sixes, it was their senior-most stars Mushfiqur Rahim (51 no, 33 balls) and Shakib al Hasan (44 no, 16 balls), who finished the innings with a smashing 77-run partnership in only 5.3 overs. Opener Imrul Kayes (59 from 75 balls; 5x4, 2x6) who added 150 runs for the opening stand with Anamul and Mominul Haque (51 off 47 balls) also made useful contributions to prop up Bangladesh total.

Brief Scores: Bangladesh 326/3 in 50 overs [Anamul Haque 100, Imrul Kayes 59, Shakib al Hasan 44 not out] lost to Pakistan 329/7 in 49.5 overs [Ahmed Shehzad 103, Shahid Afridi 59, Fawad Alam 74] by three wickets.

"We have been travelling from South Africa to New Zealand and then here. We landed and played a game just two days after travelling from New Zealand. The players are going through mental fatigue as well," Rayudu told reporters after a practice session on the eve of their Asia Cup match against Afghanistan here. All but eliminated from the race to final, a demoralised India would look to sign off their disastrous Asia Cup campaign on a positive note when they take on spirited debutantes Afghanistan in their last roundrobin league match here today. This was India's only third practice session, and first in the ongoing tournament as the players have preferred to stay confined to the hotel rooms on the eve of their last two matches.

The diminutive striker exploited the home conditions as he set up the first two goals scored by Shakinath A. and Somnath Mondal before firing in the third at the fag end of the match. The spirited Union Bank outfit got their goals through an early penalty conversion by Patrick

Mascarenhas scored from the penalty spot. Western fought back and restored parity when Charanjit crisp flag-kick from the right was firmly headed home by Shakinath in the 41st minute.

IN BRIEF India ready to face Bangladesh test

MARGAO: An exciting contest is on the cards when India face Bangladesh in their international friendly football match at Nehru Stadium here today. The two sides played out a 1-1 draw in their last meeting in the SAFF Cup Championship in Nepal. India has made changes by bringing in Subrata Paul, Amrinder Singh (both keepers), Sandesh Jhingan (defender), Alwyn George (midfielder) and Balwant Singh (striker). Balwant Singh, who has been playing consistently for Churchill Brothers, is likely to make his debut today. India coach Wim Koevermans is confident that his boys will play to their potential and win today. "We last played against Bangladesh in the SAFF Cup and it was a very exciting match and we frustrated them by scoring the equaliser in the dying minutes through Sunil Chhetri to deny them first win against us," stated Koevermans.

We cricketers love our sport, and we willingly participate, but animals in circuses are beaten into performing against their will," he said. Peering into the camera with fierce determination, Rohit's face appeared scarred by an ankus with the caption saying, "Try to Relate to Elephants' Fate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ban Animal Circuses."

Baroda started the tournament in style by beating Mumbai in the opening match, but Maharashtra look a more balance team. Baroda's fortune to qualify for the next round would rely on Yusuf Pathan. Irfan Pathan, who started bowling in this tournament, looked impressive as he generated good speed and also took wickets. From the Maharashtra side, batsmen like Ankit Bawne, Nikhil Naik, Srikant Mundhe have done well with the bat, while seamers Samad Fallah and Dominic Joseph would handle the new ball.
