BLAME GAME Cong-NCP and 50,000 pending files By Suyash Padate


he tussle between the Congress and NCP escalated yesterday as both parties are in no mood to relent over the issue of the 50,000 pending files. NCP Chief Sharad Pawar fired the first salvo at the CM Prithviraj Chavan by saying that he virtually sits on the files. Stung by the criticism, Chavan hit back by saying that his government’s priority was to take decisions which helped the common man, and not to bother about files which cater to the interest of individuals. Yesterday NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik took a dig at the CM, making the same allegation. While speaking to reporters, Malik observed, “Chavan has said that files which cater to the interest of individuals have been kept pending. Why he has kept these files Continued on pg 8 «

A heavy board at KEM falls on patient’s kin

Family blames hospital for negligence as doctors expedite kin’s discharge

By Shwetha Kannan


he family of 62-year-old Musad Tamij Sheikh is appalled at the alleged insensitive behaviour of doctors at the BMC-run KEM Hospital. Musad and his wife Shamim are contemplating going back to their village in Aurangabad after a week’s ‘notso-useful’ stay at the hospital.

What happened: Shamim Musad, a 55-year-old lady from Aurangabad, had been admitted to the BMC-run KEM Hospital on September 1 for kidney problems. On September 6, her husband Musad (62) came to the hospital to be with her. At around 2:30 pm, a heavy board outside ward number four, giving directions to other wards, came down crashing and fell on Musad who was sleeping there Photograph of the sign board taken by Musad Sheikh’s son, Salim, after it fell on his outside the ward. father. The place where now another man is resting (a man in ablue shirt is partially seen “The board fell on my right side in the photograph) was where Musad had been sleeping when the board fell on him. injuring my shoulder and my hip. My foot was hurt too”, said Musad. Hurrying up discharge: “Initially, I was told that my father would have to undergo a surgery Delay in admitting the patient: Musad’s son Mohammed Salim and rods would have to be placed in said, “The incident occurred certain places. But later the doctors at 2:30 pm and the hospital au- said that no surgery was required thorities admitted my father and that he can be discharged from at 7:45 pm. For around five hours the hospital.

it was the hospital’s fault that caused injuries to my father’s right shoulder and right hip, the hospital was not showing any interest in treating him well and were keen that we leave the hospital at the earliest”, said Salim. “I am in so much pain. The medicines seem to be having no effect at all. But these people want to me to leave”, said Musad who was struggling to walk even with the help of a walker. Disappointed yet leaving: Salim feels that there is no use keeping his father at KEM any longer. “Nobody is treating him well here. I kept prolonging his stay for a while as I wanted him to get better before he leaves. But now I feel there is no point in keeping him here any longer. My mother, who has been discharged two days ago, and my father will be leaving for Aurangabad tonight (September 12). Our rela-

John Fernandes, founder member of CROSS said, “Last year senior cops promised us that the road would be open this year. However, this year cops have barricaded the road. It is very disappointing.” He added that the church authorities have even given a letter stating that they have no objection to the road being open to pilgrims. Judith Monteiro of the Association of Concerned Catholics (AOCC) said, “We have received mixed reports on the cement road issue and are getting our facts together first.

What the Dean had to say: Dr. Shubhangi Parkar, Dean of KEM Hospital said, “We immediately did the needful for that patient and are providing him with all that he needs. We are in no way hurrying up his discharge. I will talk to the relatives”.


DCP of Bandra, he is well aware of the promise made by him last year. We look forward to the police department keeping its word and hope devotees will have a prayerful feast devoid of any difficulties.”

A senior officer from Bandra police station on the condition of anonymity said, “The road is barricaded for the convenience and safety of pilgrims. The road is steep and narrow at the top. Thousands of pil-

grims visit the church and a narrow road like it could cause a stampede. It has nothing to do with a celebrity living in the area. In fact if a pregnant woman or senior citizen needs to walk up to the church, we allow them to take the barricaded road. However, we cannot leave the road open to everyone.” Azad Shrivastav | ADC

Deletion of voter names gives politicos sleepless nights

Afternoon Despatch & Courier


By Prashant Hamine


he mere deletion of names of 38.51 lakh voters, ostensibly deceased, duplicate entries, and voters who have not acknowledged the Election Commission of India’s (ECI) notices, has predictably raised the BJPs hackles. For the EC, BJP leader Dr. Kirit Somaiya appears to be talking through his hat. These occurrences, particularly the deletion of voter names, have apparently made Somaiya rather apprehensive. When it comes to Lok Sabha elections, a loss by a few thousand votes hurts a candidate or party politically. In the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, Somaiya lost to NCP Sanjay Dina Patil from the Mumbai NorthEast constituency, by a slender margin of 2,933 votes, while his senior party colleague Ram Naik lost to Sanjay Nirupam (Congress) from Mumbai by a margin of 5,779 votes. Gajanan Kirtikar (Shiv Sena) also lost to Gurudas Kamat in the Mumbai North-West constituency by a margin of 38,387 votes. Although the ECI has refused to make an official comment on Somaiya’s contention that the deletion of so many voters names was ‘rigged’ by subordinates acting under pressure from the ruling Congress-NCP alliance, it has nevertheless thrown the rule book at the BJP. What is also equally pertinent to note is that barring the original staff at the disposal of the ECI offices in the state, the rest of the staff, during election time, is drafted from education, revenue and civic bodies. Most of the staff employed by the ECI is from the state revenue department. During the polls this staff is under the jurisdiction of the ECI and enjoys immunity under electoral laws for their actions during the election period. When there are no polls or voter enumeration drives, however, this staff on deputation is reverted to its parent department. Hence the opposition has always been skeptical of the government’s moves with respect to the transfer of bureaucrats before elections are announced. Speaking to the ADC on conditions of anonymity, an ECI official in the state said, “The Electoral Registration Officer (ERO) who also happens to be the district collector has quasi-judicial powers under Sections 20 and 23 of the Representation of the People Act, 1950 and Registration of Voters Rules, 1960, to delete the names of voters who have registered their names in more than one constituency, who are not residing in their usual place of residence for too long, who have not submitted proof of residence, or who are now deceased.” The official further clarified by saying, “The names are not just deleted at will. Those voters whose names appear in more than one assembly constituency are issued notices seeking their clarification. The names are put out in newspaper advertisements and only upon unsatisfactory replies, or no replies at all,

are the names are deleted. Moreover, since the process is quasi-judicial, the law provides the remedy of lodging an appeal by the aggrieved voter whose name has been deleted. Besides, there is still time for such voters and new voters to enroll their names in the voters list in the summary revision of electoral rolls due to start from September 16.” ECI sources argue that the deletion of names, especially of deceased voters, was started following complaints which pointed out that the total number of registered voters in the state almost matched the total state population. Another reason why politicians are upset is the fact that the urban



far across 288 assembly constituencies, 31,30,527 lakh were deleted from 141 assembly constituencies alone. Amongst the assembly constituencies where a substantial deletion of voter names has taken place are Kothrud - 49,570, Thane - 48,654, Pune Cantonment - 47,478 and Parvati - 47,318. The maximum number of names deleted in the state is 66,283 from the Solapur City Central assembly constituency, while the least number of deletions is 63 from the Warora assembly constituency. In Mumbai, the maximum deletions are 32,704 from the Dharavi (SC) assembly constituency, followed by 31,384 in Byculla.

lakh such names. However, in the constituencies of Radhanagari only 807 names were deleted, while in Phaltan (SC) 911 such entries were removed. Another BJP MLC Adv. Ashish Shelar had contended that in 67 booths in the Bandra West assembly constituency, which he had unsuccessfully contested in the 2009 assembly elections, the names of 8,716 voters were deleted from areas which had voted for the BJPSena, while Somaiya revealed that the names of several voters residing in the Mulund constituency have been deleted on grounds of duplicate entries or have been termed as deceased or having migrated else-

The Sena-BJP alliance has had a sizeable electoral presence in Mumbai City, Mumbai Suburban and Thane districts. The total voter population in these 96 assembly constituencies is 2.76 lakh, whereas the total number of names deleted is 2.04 lakh. At present there are 7,99,19,274 crore registered voters in the state, of which 4,22,71,042 crore are male voters and 3,76,48,232 crore are female. Out of the 38,51,294 lakh duplicate entries and names of deceased voters that were deleted so

The deletions across other constituencies in Mumbai are as follows: Colaba - 28,190, Malad West 26,699, Vandare West - 22,805, Malabar Hill - 21,146, Wadala - 20,706, Worli - 18,978, Andheri West - 17,282 and Charkop - 15,915. Elsewhere in the state the deletions of duplicate names or names of deceased are as follows: Bhosari - 63,147, Panvel 58,333, Shivajinagar - 53,225, Solapur City North - 51,488 and Hingna - 50,145. The least number of deletions across the state have been at Gondia - 356, Akot - 402, Murtizapur - 427 and Varsova - 725. What is more intriguing, however, is that in the 12 assembly constituencies in the Pune division alone, the ECI had to delete 6.61

where. In one such case, a lady Archana Ramesh Bagave, found her name deleted on the grounds that it figured in the Mulund, Gorai and Vikhroli rolls. He added that upon a verification of the photo-electoral rolls, all three Archana’s were found to be different. Somaiya contended that while names are being deleted, the assembly constituencies of MankhurdShivajinagar, Chandivali, Dindoshi and Anushakti Nagar have seen an increase in voter registration. He added that the EC staff has admitted that several names have been deleted without seeking an explanation, and the names of voters shifting residences have been added without seeking proper documentation.

he Valiv police have arrested three people including a local Congress leader, who threatened a 22-year-old girl after she rejected his ‘love’ proposal. According to the police, the prime accused who has been identified as Kuldeep Dinesh Vartak (28), is the president of the local Youth Congress unit in Vasai. Vartak, and his two accomplices identified as Roger Dias and Rupesh D’Mello, accosted the girl outside her bungalow in Valiv Village on Thursday. Vartak, declared his love to the girl, but when she refused, he started abusing her and even whipped out a revolver and threatened her with dire consequences if she did not reciprocate. The girl immediately informed her parents who in turn registered a complaint at the local police station. The police arrested the trio and booked them under Sections 294 (obscene acts), 506 (2) and 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). “The accused used a fake revolver to threaten the girl. Although all three were released on bail, we invoked Section 151 (3) of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) and took them into custody as a preventive measure,” informed investigating officer, API Ramdas Vakode. The trio, who have been remanded to judicial custody till September 16, are infamous for their notoriety in the region.

30-year-old has been arrested by the Mumbai Crime Branch Unit 9 in a murder case of a eunuch. The accused, after murdering eunuch, returned to the crime spot and watched the police investigating the case before fleeing to his native place in UP. The accused allegedly murdered the eunuch over a personal dispute. He was arrested by the police near a mall in Borivli on Thursday morning and was handed over to the Santacruz police. The police arrested Durgalal Yadav in the murder case of Sanjay alias Shiv Bachhan Vishwakarma alias Rupmati. According to police officials, Yadav was friends with the eunuch for the last six months. The two often used to drink together. A few of Yadav’s family members in UP had recently been receiving vulgar messages from an unknown number. Yadav soon realized that the eunuch had taken his mobile phone for around ten minutes a few days before these messages were received

complaints actually being fake. In a recent incident, a 22year-old boy has been arrested by the Goregaon Police after his girl friend filed a rape case against him. In her complaint, she mentioned that the accused promised her of marriage but ditched her later. After the Shakti Mills com-

pound gang-rape, the city police do not wish to take any risks and thus ends up registering every complaint promptly. The accused, Rahul, and the victim stay in the same locality in Meera Road and the accused is a bus driver. The two knew each other since the last 10 days and engaged in sexual


s good news to the Catholic community, the BMC and the Education Department, in a meeting with the Archdiocese Board of Education on Thursday, have stated that schools can take their own decisions regarding the adjustment of Ganesh Chaturthi holidays with the Christmas vacation. Last week, the BMC and the state education department, acting on a demand made by the Maharashtra Navnirman Vidyarthi Sena (MNVS), had declared a Ganesh Chaturthi vacation in schools across the state, since most students stay away owing to celebrations, thus missing out on what is taught. They added that these holidays could be adjusted with the Christmas holidays. After this declaration, how-

ever, various Catholic associations had written to the education department and the BMC about them being unfair to Catholic students by shortening the Christmas holidays. The letter sent by the Association of Concerned Catholics (AOCC), Catholics for Preservation of Faith (CPF) and the Maharashtra Christian Youth Forum (MCYF) stated that most of the Archdiocese Board of Education (ABE) schools are in the premises of churches, and as Christmas service takes place on the night of December 24, a cancellation of the holiday on December 23 gives no time for Catholic students to concentrate on preparations for the festival. The BMC on Thursday called a meeting with the ABE and members of Catholic associations to take a call on the adjustment. This meeting was

intercourse several times during this period, informed the police. Arun Jadhav, Senior Police Inspector, Goregaon Police Station, said that as per the girl’s complaint, the police had arrested the accused from behind Infinity Mall where he used to park his bus.When the girl approached the police, she

said that an unidentified person had raped her after kidnapping her and later revealed their relationship status. The arrested accused has been booked under various sections of the IPC including 376 (rape) and will be produced before the court on Friday, Jadhav added.

Juhu eunuch murder case: Police arrest accused as he re-visits crime spot The accused, Durgalal Yadav, allegedly killed the eunuch over suspicion of the vulgur messages sent to Yadav’s family members by the family. The two had regular fights over this. On the night of September 5, the two had a heated argument and after having half a bottle of beer, Yadav hit the eunuch on the head with the same beer bottle. He then hit the eunuch’s head with a huge stone. Yadav then undressed the eunuch and threw the stone away from the spot. He then went home and cleaned himself. Early in the morning on September 6, the Santacruz Police found an unknown body near a BMC garden in Juhu Koliwada. The crime branch also reached the spot

for investigation. Interestingly, the accused Yadav too returned to the spot in the morning. The police later found the eunuch’s clothes nearby and the identification was done in a few days’ time. Senior Police Inspector Sanjay Satardekar of Unit 9 said, “We received a tip-off and arrested Yadav from a mall in Borivali west. Yadav has confessed to the crime. He is charged with murder and destruction of evidenceof the IPC. We have handed him over to the Santacruz Police for further investigation”. Interestingly, the person who sent messages to Yadav’ family members has still not been found.

CM Akhilesh hiding grim scenario in UP I

T is becoming increasingly clear that the situation in Muzzafarnagar is much worse than what the state Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is trying to make it out to be. No wonder the chief minister does not want leaders of other parties to visit the place. Union Minister Ajit Singh has been detained and thrown out of the state again. Curfew has been lifted partially in the city and state government’s efforts to bring normalcy are being seen. But the situation is grim in the rural areas: thousands of people have fled the homes and are scared to return. No wonder the government does not want other party leaders to visit the riot-affected areas. The official figure of the dead is 50, but it could be much more. It would not be a guess work to put the number of injured more than a thousand. It is clear the authorities are hiding the true picture. Accusing fingers are being pointed at the chief minister for the inefficient way he has handled the riots. State Minister Azam Khan did not attend the executive meeting of the party evidently because he wanted to register his protest. The Congress party too has blamed the state government, but it is not likely to take any action against it because the Samajwadi Party comes to the aid of the minority government in Parliament and remain in power.

HERE are things about political rallies that television can never capture, so if I had not been present at Gujarat CM Narendra Modi’s rally in Jaipur, I would have found it hard to believe that his first big rally in northern India could have been the blockbuster, mega hit that it turned out to be. I would have not been able to tell you, as I am about to just now, that I cannot remember a political rally so filled with fervour and hope since the Janata Party’s rallies in 1977. In that year that Indira Gandhi was defeated because of the ‘excesses’ of the Emergency there were political rallies by the Janata Party that were infused with that curious mixture of hope and anger that only comes when people believe that their active support is needed to change a political reality. This was the atmosphere in Jaipur. People started to arrive at the romantically named Amroodon ka Bagh grounds from distant villages and desert districts from the early hours of the morning, so by the time I got there, around 11 a.m., there was already an impressive crowd gathered under the white ‘shamiana’ decorated with BJP flags and pictures of Vasundhara Raje. This was her show essentially since Narendra Modi was here to celebrate with her the end of the 78day ‘yatra’ that took her through every district in Rajasthan. That was the ostensible purpose of this rally, but it was also a chance for Modi to begin his campaign for the 2014 general election and the people who gathered on that afternoon of white, burning heat seemed to know this.


from the stage that Modi had landed in Jaipur the crowd started chanting, ‘Modi, Modi, Modi’, but even this did not prepare me for what happened when the Chief Minister of Gujarat appeared in person. It was as if the vast crowd were suddenly gripped by a collective hysteria. The chants of ‘Modi, Modi, Modi’ grew frenzied and young men pushed forward as if they were about to break the barricades and come up on to the stage. Signs of the situation becoming uncontrollable were so clear that he himself had to appeal to the crowd to calm down. When Vasundhara Raje began her speech they listened and cheered at the right points. She made a succinct, passionate speech about the betrayal of Rajasthan by successive Congress governments who have ruled the state for 53 years. She emphasised that Rajasthan would not have been left behind by Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh had there been BJP governments ruling in those 53 years. Then the national president of the BJP, Rajnath Singh, made a dull, forgettable speech but hurried through it because it was hard not to sense the crowd’s impatience to listen to the man they had really come to hear.

pieces because the chanting of his name did not stop despite his pleas. The crowd seemed more interested in his presence than anything he had to say. It was as if they had made up their minds that this was the man they wanted as their leader. Those who listened to what he had to say applauded enthusiastically when he said that the Congress Party before India got freedom was very different to the Congress Party after India became free. He said the main difference was that the old Congress had directed their devotion (bhakti) to Bharat Mata and the post-Independence Congress Party directed its ‘bhakti’ to one family.

Anti-thesis of Vajpayee

Modi said, “The Prime Minister has just come back from the G20 summit but instead of telling us what he did for India at this meeting, he came back to tell us that he would be happy to work for a new boss (Rahul).” The crowd cheered even louder when he listed the corruption scandals of the past five years. Adding that, “Congress key paas na neta hai, na naitikta, na neeti, na neeyat.” An alliteration that went down well in Hindi and does not work so well in English. Congress has neither a leader, nor morality, nor policies nor good intentions. He made jokes about how the rupee was in hospital while the government was busy trying to save itself. But, it was not what he said that was important. What was important was the reaction of the people to him. Then he was gone as quickly as he appeared. On my way home from the rally, I found myself sorting out the impressions he had left with his words and his presence. I The heat was of the kind that is so hard to concluded that the speech he made was not describe that us hacks scrabble for words in extraordinary, he has made many that were trying to portray it. The white ‘shamiana’ with Tavleen Singh better, but the effect he had on the people frilly saffron borders was huge but it offered who came to listen to him was truly extraorlittle protection from the burning sun and as No sooner did Modi begin his address than dinary. I tried to remember another leader more and more people came the atmosphere became more airless and the heat more in- the crowd started to go wild shouting, ‘Modi, who had this kind of effect at a political rally tense. People fainted but nobody left. And, Modi, Modi’, so loudly that he could not make and only Indira Gandhi and Atal Behari Vajthe people continued to come and come so himself heard over the chanting. A police cor- payee came to mind from my own experience that from where I sat next to the stage, I saw don formed below the stage to keep this of covering political rallies. Speaking of Vajpayee, I should say that an unending mass of humanity that spilled human wave from surging forward and swamping the leaders on the stage. There was those who believe that Modi models himself out of the tent in all directions. They were restless and noisy but sat something unnerving, almost scary, about on Vajpayee are wrong. He is the anti-thesis through long boring speeches by lesser lead- the emotions he excited in the people and al- of Vajpayee but perhaps what people want in ers. The only time they showed signs of en- though Modi made an aggressive speech that this troubled time when nothing seems to go thusiasm was when Narendra Modi’s name targeted the Nehru-Gandhi family as much as right and when hopelessness prevails is that was mentioned. When someone announced it did Congress he had to make it in bits and anti-thesis.

Restless and noisy


‘If you want joy... then meditate’ “R

EASON and logic have not solved our human problems, and we are going to find out if there is quite a different approach to all the problems and travails of life. We shall come upon something that is beyond reason; for reason has not solved any of our political, economic or social problems; nor has it solved the intimate human problems between two people. It becomes more and more obvious that we live in a world that is going to pieces, that has become quite insane, quite disorderly and a dangerous place to live in. Up to a point we must reason together, logically, sanely, holistically; then, perhaps, beyond that point, we shall be able to find a different state, a different quality of mind, not bound be any dogma, by any belief, by any experience and therefore a mind that is free to observe and through observation see exactly "what is" and also find that there is energy to transform it." The above quote is full of deep insights

compassion, joy and freedom. This transformation that Krishnamurti is alluding to above, is the freedom from duality. The freedom from the false sense of separation, and logic and reason, which belong to the thinking apparatus, are unable to carry us to this state. Duality lies in our thinking itself, and although logic and reason can give us clarity of thought, it cannot go beyond that. Here he then indicates that what is needed is the power of direct observation. Direct observation of things just as they Recognizing this, we see the need for are, reveals the false in the false.

and practical guidance on how to walk the path to spiritual enlightenment. In this quote, Krishnamurti is pointing out the fact that first you have to notice that something is amiss. That, I know is putting it lightly. Without going into the long list of problems that plague us today, I think it would suffice to say that things are quite a mess, both within and without.

The Modern Periodic law states :


“The chemical and physical properties of elements are a periodic function of their atomic number.”

School of elements Everything around us is made up of matter. Matter can exist in the form of elements, compounds and mixtures. Just as books are arranged systematically in the library to facilitate its use, similarly scientists felt the need to classify elements to facilitate the study of their physical and chemical properties. Johann Dobereiner, a German scientist, was the first to classify elements known at that time.He grouped together elements having similar properties into groups of three called triads.

Dobereiner’s law : When elements are arranged in the increasing order of their atomic mass, the atomic mass of middle element is approximately the arithmetic mean of the atomic mass of other two elements.

atomic mass. Therefore their placement was not clear. At certain places elements having higher atomic mass eg Co (58.93) was placed before those having lower atomic mass Ni (58.71).  Some elements placed in same subgroup had different properties. Eg. Mn was placed with halogens. 

Moseley’s Modern Periodic Table : Henry Moseley, an English physicist, discovered that atomic number is the most fundamental property of an element and not its atomic mass.

Features of Modern Periodic table : 

It consists of 18 vertical columns known as groups and 7 horizontal rows known as periods.  Periods are numbered from1 to 7. Elements of same period have same number of shells which is equal to period number.  There are 18 vertical columns numbered from 1 to 18 as group number. Elements having same outer electronic configuration are present in the same group.

The four blocks of the periodic table based on electronic configuration : s- block : Group 1 and 2 along with hydrogen form this block. They have one or two electrons in the outermost shell. They are all metals. p-block : Group 13 to 17 and zero group form this block. They have 3 to eight electrons in their outermost shell. They are metals, metalloids and non-metals. d-block : Group 3 to 12 form this block. Their two outermost shell is incompletely filled. They are all metals. f-block : The two series at the bottom form the f-block. Their three outermost shell is incompletely filled. They are all metals.

Drawback of this law: He could identify only some triads from elements known at that time.  Other triads did not obey Dobereiner’s law 

Newlands law of Octaves :

Classification of elements on the basis of its electronic configuration :

Out of 56 elements known at that time, Newland a British Chemist, arranged them in increasing order of their atomic mass. He found that every eighth element had properties similar to that of first as in Octaves in music.


Electronic Blocks configuration Inert gases Zero All shells completely filled Normal elements 1,2 and 13 to 17 Only outermosts-block and pshell incomplete blocks excluding zero group Transition 3 to 12 Last two shells d-block elements incomplete Inner transition Lanthanides and Last three shells f-block elements Actinides incomplete

Drawback of this law:  Only elements upto Ca could be classified.  After Ca every eighth element did not posses properties similar to first.  In order to fit existing elements he placed two elements in same position which differed in their properties.  His table could not include inert gases as they were not discovered at that time.


Variation in periodic properties of elements

Mendeleev’s Periodic table : Mendeleev, a Russian scientist, stated : “The Physical and Chemical properties of elements are the periodic function of their atomic mass.”

Main features : 

It contains seven horizontal rows called as periods numbered from 1 to 7.  It consists of eight vertical columns known as groups (I to VIII). Group I to VII is further divided into A and B subgroups.

Merits of Mendeleev’s Periodic table:  

Successfully classified all known elements. Kept blank places for undiscovered elements and predicted their properties. They were later found to be true.  Noble gases discovered later found place in Mendeleev’s periodic table. Demerits: No fixed position could be given to hydrogen as it resembles alkali metals as well as halogens.  Isotopes have similar chemical properties but different

You’ll find a bag made from waste rubber tyre-tubes, a lamp made from a used car clutch plate and a patterned gate made from metal found in a scrap yard. Speaking about the concept, Aziz says, “Good design is cohesiveness — in the making, the material, how it will be used and of course, a certain intrinsic beauty. Today, it is about how you can use or reuse your resources.” Aziz himself recently created a lamp from a washing machine drum that had stopped working. You can look forward to innovative lighting, furniture, bags and objects which will surely add a quirky touch to your home.

Tejasvi Desai steps inside Chromakey - A Design Store, to see how strong a statement it can help your personal space make


happy clutter of different shades and shapes greeted us as we entered Chromakey, which strongly resembles an upscale attic, but it’s actually on the ground floor. All of us have heard the saying ‘consumer is king,’ but as we explored the store, we realised how seriously they take these golden words. We were astounded to see that almost every item on display at this quirky design store could be customised according to our needs and preferences. The store is small, but by no means paltry. Excellent use of space has been made and every inch showcases their products. The store has designer clocks, desk lamps, laptop sleeves and personal organisers amongst many other items. Chromakey houses some unique designer pieces such as lamps made from the headlight of a Royal Enfield bike (`19,600) and for the laal-batti fan — a lamp made out of the headlight of an Ambassador car (`19,600). Their collection of lamps and wall clocks is quite diverse. The Victorian man clock (`11,500) will make any ordinary wall look splendidly regal and for a more modern look, we recommend the Gear clock (`9,350). From crazy soft-board pins to fun tissue boxes, they have it all. We fell in love with their Ah-choo tissue box (`2,100) and Speech bubble mouse-pads that are available in an assortment of colours (`400). Some items that you should definitely check out are their chairs. The Bounce chair (`39,900) that has a rubber grid in place of a normal seat looks extremely dangerous to sit on, but it really took us by surprise once we plonked ourselves on it. It is said to be able to easily support 150kgs! Another such chair was the Flux Chair (`8,500) which when not in use can be folded into an envelope. Yes, you read that right! The chair comes with a cushion and not only did it look trendy but was also comfortable to sit on. The store is full of such wacky stationery and décor items, big and small alike. Every round of the store you take, you are sure to discover something new, hiding in one of the shelves. The high prices could be the only downside in this collector’s paradise. So, if your excuse for not buying something is you wish it was available in another colour or style, think again because at Chromakey anything you want is possible, but obviously at a price and one that is definitely on the higher side.

>> We particularly liked the neon range of bags and clutches at Blushh. Their tribal inspired collection, that includes bags and jewellery, is also quite impressive

A SMALL SURPRISE Blushh is a tiny, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it store located on Carter Road that sells merchandise that is funky, unique and affordable, says Dev Goswami


ocated almost inside a general store, Blushh is not really noticeable from the road. So, if you’ve passed Carter Road without noticing this little accessories shop, we don’t blame you. It seems like a run-of-the-mill store that sells cheap knock offs. However, you’ll be surprised to find that each and every product on sale is an in-house design. It’s the perfect place to update your wardrobe for daily wear. They have a wide range of earrings, necklaces, bags, clutches and other accessories lined up neatly against the wall. The whole store can be classified according to the design inspiration behind the merchandise — there’s bling, feather-based jewellery, neon coloured bags and tribal inspired merchandise. The designs might be a bit loud, but they’re perfect for college students and young women and at the prices they are being sold at (`120-200), they’re worth picking up. If you’re looking for accessories that you can wear on a night out, they have a range starting from `850 that includes shiny earrings and necklaces. This range also includes a few long, feather earrings (`1,100) that are very eye catching. We also liked a pair of red-green-blue-yellow rhinestone earrings that would be perfect for a traditional function. Apart from jewellery and accessories, Blushh has several bags. You’ll find solid neon coloured bags, leather bags and clutches. A golden clutch that had (looked like) a panther on the handle (`1,600) also caught my attention. I liked a bright orange coloured one the most — there wasn’t anything unique about the design, but the finish and overall look made it stand out. Another funkier bag that will catch your fancy is the one in neon pink with skull impressions. However, if there was one thing that I was going to remember Blushh by, it would be their range of tribal bags. While the tribal inspired jewellery is okay, the bags are cute and definitely something that would add to your wardrobe. The texture is unique and the designs quite intricate. Blushh stands out because they have trendy designs that are affordable. You might not get stuff that you can wear at a posh dinner party, but for everyday wear and a casual night out, this is the place you should check out.

don’t have a sweet tooth. So, if I say that I had six cubes of chocolate back-to-back without feeling choco-swamped, and enjoyed every bit of it, then that says something about the chocolate I ate. The chocolate that I’m talking about comes from the famous Japanese brand, Royce’. Currently, out of the vast repertoire that falls under this brand, their most popular chocolates have made it to Royce’s first ever outlet in India. While many offerings were out of stock when we visited, we did manage to try their signature Nama chocolates and two other varieties. They currently have four variations of Nama chocolates: Ghana Bitter, Champagne (Pierre Morgan), Ecuador Sweet and Mild Cacao, dusted with generous amounts of cocoa powder. We tried all four of them and they just melt in the mouth! The Ghana Bitter, as the name suggests, will be loved by those who like their chocolate untainted by too much sugar. The Champagne block, which was our least favourite amongst the four, had an unfaltering whiff of champagne and Ecuador Sweet is for the folks who

want their chocolate kick with a good sugar fix. Mild Cacao was perfectly milky and will be ideal to uplift you. After the Nama tasting session, we savoured their Pure Chocolate of Venezuela Bitter & Ghana Sweet variety (`995 for 40), which made a distinct click sound when we broke it, indicating the use of wholesome chocolate. Our last bite at Royce’ was that of Amande Chocolat (`1,665 for 360gm) that is available in an assortment of three (dark, milk and white) and has a roasted almond at the centre. Other items that we didn’t get to taste, but have heard a lot about, are thin slices of chocolate with berry flavoured centers called Prafeuille Chocolate (`995 for 30), chocolate coated potato chips (`775 for 190gm) and Criollo chocolate (`845 for 24) which are made from some of the world’s rarest cacao beans. Royce’ — as you must have noticed while reading the name — ends with an apostrophe. That’s to make the name spell six letters, since the Japanese consider six lettered names lucky. However, with the chocolates that they manufacture, I think that dropping the apostrophe will not make a blip of a difference to their reputation.

What’s cOOKing? We tell our readers (that’s you!) what’s new on the food front... Mad Over Donuts, Kurla

We’ve got good news for donut lovers. Mad Over Donuts has opened another outlet! Their donuts make for perfect post-lunch dessert or as a gift.

astaa Bastta is predominately a delivery place. However, that doesn’t stop this tiny Italian restaurant from having chic, inviting décor. It follows a no-door design and has a charming half-wall that works both as a table and as a partition between the alfresco seating outside and the interiors. You can sit at the table, watching the busy street, yet be away from all the bustle of the area — now if only we had the view of the Arabian Sea that is a few hundred meters away. Their menu includes different kinds of pasta along with a few salad options. They also have a make-your-own-pasta option, where you can choose from a variety of pastas, sauces and toppings. We opted to start with the Bocconcini Salad (`160) which had a mix of leaves, cherry tomatoes, olives, balsamic dressing and of course, mozzarella pieces. For the price, the salad was as good as it could get. You won’t go back home raving about it, but you won’t regret spending the money on it either. Coming to the pasta, we decided to try a few of their signature recipes: Quattro Formaggi (`140), Ragualla Bolognese (`130) and Carbonara (`180). First things first — I was really impressed by the quantity. Even though we had asked for a half of each dish, it seemed that it would be enough for one person (and it was). The Quattro Formaggi is a four cheese pasta and I loved it for the fact that apart from that slight hint of sauce, nothing came in the way of appreciating the cheeses. It is a simple dish with not many flavours… perfect for a cheese lover. We tried the Bolognese next, which is quite filling. Again, it was a simple dish with the basic, but satisfying flavours of meat and herbs. It

looks a bit on the spicier side, however it is not so at all and instead has a slightly tart aftertaste due to the sauce and tomatoes. We left the Carbonara for the end and I was very happy that we did. It had a rich, creamy taste with the shavings of parmesan cheese and bits of bacon making this a heavenly dish. Add to that the egg cream sauce that the pasta was cooked in and it makes for a dish that you just can’t stop eating. My only misgiving was that I would’ve preferred a few more bacon pieces — but then, you can never have enough bacon, can you? Overall, we had a satisfying time at Pastaa Bastta — the food was tasty and filling. I can’t say I’ve never had such dishes but I will definitely go back for a quick bite. I recommend that you do the same and when you do, do not miss out on their crispy, dripping in garlic butter and oh-sodelicious garlic bread. Pastaa Bastta is worth a visit, and when I say visit, I mean it literally. They deliver, but the experience at the eatery is something you don’t want to miss out on.

>> While debuting Bollywood actor Karan Kundra has never experienced a supernatural experience himself like in his latest movie, he believes there is something out there

Gearing up for Bollywood Punjabi actor Karan Kundra is all set to make his Bollywood debut with Horror Story, releasing today. Rohit Pramar talks to him about acting in the experimental film, whether he believes in the supernatural and what other projects he has lined up


alandhar boy Karan Kundra has come a long way. From debuting as an actor as Arjun Punj in the popular romantic series Kitni Mohabbat Hai to hosting one of the most popular reality crime prevention shows Gumrah: End of Innocence, he has always been adventurous. Now, Karan is all set to make his Bollywood debut in Vikram Bhatt’s upcoming film Horror Story, which is due to hit the cinema on September 13. In an exclusive conversation, he talks about the same and much more

Tell us about your film Horror Story and your role in it. As the name suggests, it’s a horror story. It’s an experimental film made on the lines of I Know What You Did Last Summer and Scream. It’s a movie made for a young audience who are up for a good scare. I play Neil, a musician who is going to the U.S. He is a logical guy and always tries to find solutions. He travels to the U.S. where seven of his friends give him a farewell in a hotel which is haunted. That’s how the story begins.

What do you see yourself doing in 10 years? I would like to see myself as an established Bollywood actor. By that I mean I would like to

You’ve also dabbled with Punjabi cinema. What’s happening on that front? My next Punjabi film Mere Yaar Kaminey is releasing on October 11. It’s a phenomenal film. My other film Control Paaji Control, which is currently under post-production will release on November 29.

Have you ever experienced any supernatural incidents similar to those in the movie? I have personally never experienced any supernatural incidents. My dad is 71-years-old and he is the most logical person I’ve ever met, but he doesn’t deny the supernatural. So, I can’t say there are ghosts as I haven’t seen one myself. But I know there’s something out there. What kind of films would you like to do — a big multi-starrer film or a small film with a lead role? As an actor, I’m open to possibilities and any sorts of ideas. I would like to do both as I enjoy doing a variety. But, I would obviously like to do good work and give my 100% to whatever I commit to.

Your next film is Rum Pum Posh. How different is your character compared to Neil in Horror Story? Both the films are completely different and so are my characters. Horror Story is a horror film and Rum Pum Posh is a psychological thriller. I had a great time shooting both the movies.

>> Catch Horror Story in theatres today do more films and work with the best directors. Personally speaking, I just want to be content and happy with what I have.

You’re also seen as a host on crime prevention show, Gumrah. Do you think we need more shows like that? I don’t need think we need more crime shows. We already have enough. However, we need to become more responsible. The existing crime shows need to stop sensationalising the story and get to the root of the problem. That’s what we do in Gumrah, we get into the psychological side of the crime and find why someone commits such crimes. We don’t care about TRPs nor do we sensationalise. As a society, we really need to transform and for the better.

Substantial selling was seen banking, banking and consumer durables stocks.

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Volume: Volume (Qty shares) increased 17.55%. This change is substantial and indicates a wide participation by investors. OUTLOOK FOR TODAY: On Japanese candlestick patterns the index after having formed five consecutive white body candles has formed a black body candle on higher volumes. This is negative. However, the 15 days moving average has crossed above the 25 days moving average. Further, the index is above the 5, 15, 25 and 200 days moving averages. Moreover, velocity parameters continue to remain positively trended. All these indicate a positive bias. Investors are advised to hold long positions.

Work with strict stop losses on all positions

Fewer available opportunities in refinancing segment along with slower drawdown from existing sanction book are likely to impact IDFC's loan book. During FY13, more than 50% of balance sheet growth can be attributed to refinancing of operating assets, as per the management commentary. Fewer available opportunities in refinancing segment along with slower drawdown from existing sanction book are likely to impact IDFC's loan book. During FY13, more than 50% of balance sheet growth can be attributed to refinancing of operating assets, as per the management commentary. Similarly, since Q3FY13, IDFC's loan book has been dragged by lower refinancing demand as well as sluggish greenfield projects.

Target Rs. 293

Remains attractive over medium term; reiterate BUY: We continue to like BJCOR for its demonstrated consistency and outperformance in volume growth over past many quarters, strong brand equity of ADHO, healthy return ratios (37% RoE/RoCE in FY13) and positive growth outlook for LHO category. We see NOMARKS acquisition is a step in the right direction, as BJCOR’s strong distribution network and financial muscle will provide the brand a strong platform to take off going forward. We believe this acquisition also partially addresses the issue of effective utilisation of cash for BJCOR (it had Rs4.6 bn cash and equivalents as of Jun’13). Mgmt expects this acquisition to be EPS decretive in FY14, before being EPS accretive from FY15 onwards. We have not factored this acquisition in our earnings due to lack of detailed information on financials. Maintain BUY with price target of Rs 293. port is at the 5692 points level. The next support is at the 5561 points level.

Resistance Levels: The immediate main resistance is at the 5936 points level. The next resistance is at the 6104 points level.

Pivot Point Analysis: For intra-day traders the support and resistance levels are calculated according to the pivot point theory and are: Pivot point = 5866 (This is the level where the trend is likely to change during intra-day). Support (1) = 5800. Support (2) = 5750. Resistance (1) = 5917. Resistance (2) = 5982.

COMEDY CONFLICTS R Afternoon Despatch & Courier



eviewers are often asked why we bother to review some films—either the totally hopeless ones that won’t go beyond the first show, or the ones that are so obviously meant for a mass audience that negative reviews won’t make a dent. Some films really are critic proof and some deliberately provoke by their crudeness or violence, and then boast that they know the pulse of the audience. So, for a change, this reviewer will play truant and not watch Grand Masti (boys will chortle when they say the title, others might not get it). A sequel of sorts to Indra Kumar’s 2004 film Masti, this one reportedly takes lewdness to another level. If the censors have passed it and audiences are willing to watch it, what can be said— it’s their time, money and choice of entertainment. The first one was about three married men who want to have an affair because their wives are psycho—and the director did make them into wives from hell. It justified the men’s desire for extra-marital games. Such films are, by design, vulgar and sexist. The women are there to fulfill the bimbo quotient—act dumb, wear skimpy costumes and try not to look offended when the

A scene from the film Masoom and (inset) producer Devi Dutt


By Chaitanya Padukone

hree decades ago, a modest yet masterpiece film Masoom produced by Devi Dutt (younger brother of legendary filmmaker-actor Guru Dutt) who gave Shekhar Kapur his directorial debut break, generated emotional tear-jerking waves with its heart-rending performances and awesome award-winning music score by R.D. Burman. Recently, the milestone movie which bagged five Filmfare awards, hit media headlines again, when it was reported that the maverick composer-singer-actor-producer Himesh Reshammiya was all set to launch its ‘remake’, that too with Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai in the lead roles. Reacts the outspoken Devi Dutt, “Frankly speaking, a landmark film like Masoom ideally should not be remade. Because it’s an all-time

unique classic which was made with lot of ‘heart ‘n’ soul’. The success of Masoom was not pre-planned. There were a lot of impromptu improvisations made during the shoot by director Shekhar and it emerged a sterling masterpiece, which went on to bag multiple Filmfare awards. Then there would be inevitable comparisons with the original, as it has now happened with Zanjeer. Who knows, I may be wrong, but this is my honest reaction.” The unassuming producer has not only worked closely with the illustrious Shyam Benegal but is also related to him. Had Himesh contacted Devi for negotiations on the ‘remake’ of Masoom? “No, I have not met Himesh even once. That’s because his representative was in touch with me. In fact, I also discussed this matter with Gulzaar saab who is the writer and lyricist of Masoom.

lescent male, and maybe a young woman or two, who ‘doesn’t mind’ coarse humour, is‘sporting’ about the sexism— and declares that she is not a feminist. If Masti was offensive in many ways, just the poster of Grand Masti are hideous. One can almost guess what the film will be like—three men trying to be boys, running amok at a college reunion. Hollywood has its quota off the Guy Flick—American Pie being the template—about men going off the rails – getting drunk, stoned and losing their inhibitions, women being the target of most of the gags, no holding back the

He launched Mukta Arts, a film production company in 1982, and is considered a maverick filmmaker for making epic films that portray grandeur and very rich themes. The man who is known as an institute himself, created an institute called Whistling Woods International for aspirants of the world. The one and only Subhash Ghai is now ready with his magnum opus Kaanchi, ready for release on December 6, 2013. Here the filmmaker gets candid with Faisal Saif.

bawdiness. This kind of humour is not just cheap it smacks of desperation – do anything to make ‘em buy tickets. A large chunk of the audience is willing to leave its brains at home and are happy enough to get some ‘timepass.’ They don’t particularly care about the lack of good taste. The best comedies are the clean ones that don’t disrespect anyone, but those require wit and a genuine sense of humour, which the fastbuck filmmaker doesn’t possess. Anyway, to cut a long rant short, Grand Masti is not getting my time or money.


Viveik waxes eloquent over Grand Masti Viveik Oberoi’s latest release is a sequel to his previous hit Masti titled Grand Masti releasing today. Sandeep Hattangadi spoke to Viveik about his new outing.

Masti was heavily criticised heavily for its ribald humour and below the belt jokes. Weren’t you afraid about acting in its sequel? Yes, I am afraid and that’s why we are telling the audiences through various media that Grand Masti is an adult film which falls in the sex comedy genre. If Indian audiences can enjoy the American Pie series and Hangover series, why this double standards for Hindi films?

Story was a flop? I feel I have succeeded in every film and the audience has loved me. I am sure that my role of Kaal in the forthcoming Krissh-3, will be remembered for a long time.

What are your forthcoming films? Sher, Sitare, Krissh-3, Khote Sikkay, the Shootout series and Prince-2.

Will this film find an audience? Yes. I am confident that the youth who enjoy ‘non-veg’ jokes will come to see it.

Was it tough shooting with the film’s six heroines? Well, the film has ‘adult’ jokes, ‘but no vulgarity as Indra Kumar abhors vulgarity. Since Riteish Deshmukh, Aftab Shivdasani and I have been friends for a long time, we were comfortable. To put the heroines at ease we played pranks on them. Were you disappointed that Jayantabhai Ki Luv

“Films work because of authors”

Re-discovering the Showman… My father was a doctor in Delhi. For me studies were never important during my educational days. I used to study the last minute of my exams and pass out with good numbers. I was the ‘hero’ of my college. I was more into dramas and other activities. I used to hide my talent from my father. Because in those days by doing dramas etc, you don’t get any jobs. Today is different, You see a talent in a kid and you bring him into any re-

ality show. In those days, there were no reality shows. But I never gave up on my talent. I used to act and direct plays for my University and received gold medals.

And the ‘Bombay (now Mumbai) journey’ started? Yes. I came to Mumbai and struggled for seven years and I did not get a job. In fact, I got a small role as an actor in Aradhana (1969) starring Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore. I also tried to do bits and pieces as an actor in other films which I was not satisfied with. I started writing scripts and within one year, I discovered that I was selling six stories to six top directors of those days.

How did Kalicharan happen? While I started writing scripts, I wrote Kalicharan. N.N. Sippy loved the story and he offered me the film to direct as well. This is how my actual journey started. Kalicharan was my first hit film by the grace of God. From there, I never looked back. I gave 11 hits in a row after Vidhata. Why did your film Krodhi (1981) with Dharmendra not do well at the Box Office? It still gets appreciation on TV channels…

Every time I made a film, I was told that my films are ahead of time. Whenever any of my films flopped, I used to hear this general complaint. Krodhi was my style of film making or you may say it was my way of understanding cinema.

How about remaking it? How can I remake my films? Can I remake Kalicharan? Ram Lakhan? It will look stupid. How can I make these films again? I have worked so many years of my life, I want to excel myself. I cannot go back.

Tell us something about your new magnum opus Kaanchi. Now I am making Kaanchi which is a compromise in between my kind of cinema and current audience. I am making Kaanchi for my current audience. This is a very commercial film with lots of drama, joy, sorrow and entertainment. The way I used to make movies, I hope that I am able to satisfy my current audience. Because every Director has to match with the current audience because people will only respect you when you make a ‘Blockbuster’, doesn’t matter if you have given a great film. Great films are not respected. A hit film is always respected. Great films are respected on a lifelong basis, Especially, when you pass away or when you are gone (smiles).

OLKATA: National football chief coach Wim Koevermans' role has come in for a sharp criticsm as India lost their stronghold in the SAFF Championshp after being beaten by Afghanistan in the final. Olympian P K Banerjee, under whose regime as manager and technical director India had won the title in 2005, today said the Dutchman's should come under scrutiny after Wednesday's defeat. Taking a dig at the foreign coach, the former India captain told PTI: "He's been around for more than a year and is paid handsome salary. His role should come under scrutiny by the experts panel." Asked whether Koevermans should be replaced, Banerjee said: "Why should I give an opinion on somebody who's appointed by the federation. The AIFF should look into it." Dismayed at India's show, Banerjee said: "I stopped watching after India conceded a goal before going down to minnows Nepal. The performance really hurts." "During our time (2005) when (Syed) Nayeemuddin was the coach and (Bhaichung) Bhutia the captain, we had won the title without conceding a goal. Slamming the Indian players, Banerjee further said: "They never looked serious and did not have the heart for a big match. We were more passionate about our game. There's a lot of scope for improvements." Another India great Chuni Goswami questioned the coach's strategy to leave out India captain Sunil Chettri, an ace forward, from the starting XI. "It was a bad decision that backfired in the end. The coach and the entire team should be held responsible... It was unfortunate to see India go down like this." "India were the dominating force of South Asia but with the loss it's no more the case." Asked what should be the way forward, Goswami said: "We should look to give foreign exposure to the Indian team. Make them play against teams likes Iran, Iraq, South Korea and Japan. There has to be a plan to and we have to act together." Former India player and Dhyan Chand awardee Shabbir Ali said there should be no execuse for such a poor result. "The whole team should be blamed for the pathetic show. It's

Afghan President Hamid Karzai poses with members of the national soccer team a day after they beat India 2-0 in the South Asian Football Federation Championship in Kabul, Afghanistan on Thursday.

Indian football has not improved in recent years: Vijayan NEW DELHI: Indian football legend I M Vijayan said that the game in the country has stagnated in recent years with the national side not showing improvement with a string of reverses at the regional and Asian level. Former captain Vijayan, who played 79 matches for India between 1989 and 2003, refused to pinpoint the SAFF Championships debacle, but said that the national side has not produced results in recent years. "I am not an (sports) administrator and not playing in the national side now. So I am not

really surprising how they lost to Afghanistan after having dished out an inspiring show against Maldives in the semis." "We have had a good build-up to the tournament and played practice matches. More than that we have a well-organised professional league here. So, it really beats me to see our team lose to a country like Afghanistan who don't even have proper infrastructure." Known for

going to blame anybody for this. But what can I say, it's for all to see. We are not getting the results in the recent years at the regional and Asian level," Vijayan told PTI from his home in Kerala. "I am not saying this because of the title loss in SAFF Championships. In fact, the team played well, even in the final against Afghanistan. But we have not had the desired results in recent times. When I was playing India were in top 100 in the FIFA rankings (94th in 1996). But now we are low in rankings (147th)," he said.

his tongue-in-cheek comments, former India coach Syed Nayeemuddin was forthright as usual and said: "I feel Wim should resign immediately. The need of the hour is an Indian coach and he should get all the facilities given to a foreign coach." "In the last seven years, the federation has spent INR 7 crores on foreign coaches. I wish they had similar faith on Indian coaches as

India drop 10 places to 155th spot in FIFA rankings

NEW DELHI: In a major embarrassment, India have dropped a whopping 10 places to 155th spot in the latest FIFA rankings, issued. The FIFA rankings added salt to India's wounds, a day after the country failed to defend its SAFF Cup title, losing 0-2 to Afghanistan in Kathmandu. Wim Kovermans-coached India have 143 points in its kitty in the updated list. By virtue of the lone international title, war-torn Afghanistan have climbed up seven places to the 132nd position.

UMBAI: Young left-arm spinner Harmeet Singh told the Cricket Board that he personally had no knowledge as to whether his three Rajasthan Royals' teammates, implicated in the IPL spot-fixing scandal, had any intention to commit the alleged offences. In a reply to the show cause issued to him by BCCI on September 4, Singh denied that he failed to report about this to the BCCI or its designated anti-corruption unit headed by Ravi Sawani, as required under the IPL Code of Conduct. The two-member disciplinary committee of BCCI is slated to meet in Delhi tomorrow to hear Harmeet, and the three accused players -- S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan. Singh assured BCCI that he would appear personally, but also requested that his lawyer may be allowed to be with him at the deposition before the committee, comprising Arun Jaitley and Niranjan Shah. Harmeet, through his lawyer Ashok Paranjpe, further said that the one-man probe commissioner appointed by BCCI - Sawani - had never summoned him as had been alleged in the BCCI's show-cause notice.

"I was shocked to see the coach leaving out Chettri from the starting line-up. I won't comment much on the coach because the federation only thinks that they cannot do without foreign coaches," Bhowmick quipped.

MUMBAI | FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2013 Vishwanath Salian | ADC


UMBAI: Title contenders Western Railway rallied to score a 4-2 win against Mumbai Customs in a scrappy league match of the Mumbai Magicians-MHAL Super League 2013, at the MHAL Stadium, Churchgate, on Thursday evening. For Western Vinod Kumar scored twice on either side of the break, while Jay Karan got one and the other came through an own goal. Amit Kumar and Joshua Versaonkar were on target for Customs. Western’s win, their fourth in as many matches, has lifted them to the top of the nine-team standing with 12 points. For Customs this was their second defeat in four games. Western who went on the offensive from the outset, while Customs started off on a defensive note and were happy to just play the ball around against. But it was Customs who managed to open the scoring when Amit Kumar against the run of play scrambled the ball into the goal following a melee in front of the Western citadel. Western quickly regrouped and staged a solid fight back. Vinod Kumar cancelled out Customs lead when he hit the target from Jay Karan’s pass in the 32nd minute. Western’s second goal was a gift as Kunaujam Suresh’s crack into the ‘D’ took a deflection from a defenders stick and went into the net in the 50th minute and 14 minutes later Jay Karan added the third before Vinod Kumar slotted home the fourth in the 66th minute. Customs got their second goal when Versaonkar converted their 10th penalty corner in the 70th minute.
