ith a moustache styled like actor Ajay Devgan in ‘Singham’, short hair-cut and an IPS officer’s uniform, complete with fake badges and name plates, there was no stopping for 35-year-old Hemant Dattatray Patil who moved around as an Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP). However, Patil’s luck ran out when the actual ASP of the region, Sangramsingh Nishaandar, got suspicious about his activities and instructed the local police to keep a watch on him and finally a police team led by API

Ramdas Vakode nabbed him from his house on Thursday. According to the police, Patil, a resident of Santosh Compound in Valiv village, posed in the neighbourhood as an IPS officer, currently posted as ASP in the Godla region of Gondia district. Moving around as he did in a white car donning a police uniform, not only the villagers, but local politicians saw no reason to suspect anything amiss and invited Patil as a chief guest and at times as a speaker at functions and events. In one such gathering of school students, Patil had even delivered a speech on how to become an

IPS and the challenges of performing its duties. “We were informed about Patil, moving in the area posing as an IPS officer claiming to be posted as ASP at Godla. However, I was aware that this post did not exist in that jurisdiction”, said ASP Sangramsingh Nishaandar. Investigations revealed that Patil was educated till XII standard and after doing odd jobs in private companies, started moving around as a police officer, he procured the uniform from a Mumbaibased tailor, who will also be questioned, police said. “His attire, physical attributes and mannerisms led

people including his friends and kin to believe him. We are inquiring whether he had financially duped people”, said Senior Police Inspector Rajedndra Mohite, appealing victims who might have been cheated by the imposter to come forward and inform the Valiv police. A case under sections 170, 171, 419 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered against the accused who has been remanded to police custody. The police have recovered a uniform set and have also seized a Chevrolet Beat car. Further investigations are being carried out by API Vakode.

female victim and her male friend had also identified the minor accused on Wednesday in the juvenile remand home. Officials will now seek a production warrant in the magistrate court following which they will re-arrest the accused in the latest case of gang rape involving a teenager that took place on July 31. While officials are confident of a conviction in the August 22 case, due to

matching DNA samples from the victim’s body and the accused, they are circumspect about the July 31 case since most of the evidence is suspected to have been eliminated since the crime took place a full month ago. “However, the only advantage here is with the new section 376 (D), amended after the Delhi gang rape, where the burden of proof lies on the accused,” the officer added.

OPINIONS Do you think reserving beds for acid attack victims is a good step? Afzal Hussain PR Executive Yes, it is good step, and not only the civic hospitals, but semi-government and private hospitals should follow the rule seriously. Parveen Qureshi Homemaker Yes. Looking at today’s crime scenario against women in the city, acid attack is the easiest way to destroy their lives, and after this decision, it will help provide speedy treatment. Tahir Beig Cameraman Yes, since during emergency situations, most of the hospitals deny admission to acid attack victims, this government decision will really help. Rizwan Ansari Businessman It’s a good move from the government, but private hospitals, being hesitant, should be warned and told to help victims in such cases. Arun Kumar Media professional It is a bold step, but there is need to improve the upkeep of all the civic-run and semigovernment hospitals.

n the eve of International Vulture Day, Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) conducted an interactive talk session and film viewing on ‘The Vanishing Vultures.’ Homi Khusrokhan, president of BNHS, said, “If the use of diclofenac is compared to that of cyanide to a human being, diclofenac is 7 times more harmful.” Human diclofenac formulations which are supposed to be primarily injected on human beings mostly for curing ruminal arthritis, is used by vets on cattle to treat them for swelling on limps, martitis and swelling on joints. Barber emphasised on the fact that meloxicam which is a scientifically proven safe drug for use on cattle, but is more expensive as compared to diclofenac, should be Homi Khusrokhan, president of BNHS, speaks to mediapersons, yesterday. administered on cattle. “Veterinary diclofenac formulations are mostly as 40 companies in India are pro- of vultures in North India by 98.3%, in East India by 96.3% and 91.7% from India and Nepal.

BNHS has 2 breeding centres Pinjor in Haryana, Buxa in West Bengal, and 3 centres in Pakistan, 1 in Bhutan and 1 in Egypt. Barber also spoke about the possible satellite tracking of birds in the breeding area. The objective of a Vulture Conservation Area is to establish through targeted awareness activities and sampling for at least a 100km[1] radius (30,000km2) so that no diclofenac or other veterinary drugs toxic to vultures are present in cattle carcasses (the main vulture food supply), such that it can be declared as a Vulture Safe Zone. Government statistics indicate that livestock numbers in India have exceeded 400 million since the 1980s and reached more than 500 million in 2005. In India and Nepal, cows have a sacred status for Hindus and are not consumed. yainaz.choksey@afternoondc.in

Laugh out Loud!

What would your reaction be if you were asked to witness Cyrus Broacha and Sahukar, and some of India’s popular comedians launch a Comedy Week special? Quite obviously, you’d know you were in for some laughter, and that’s exactly what happened at the Trident two days ago, where YouTube launched its Comedy Week from September 5-12, at a fun event. Well, it didn’t take too long to get the ball rolling and after the usual Q&A session with the big wigs, funny man Cyrus Broacha called on

Wordsmith, dentist, funnyman Dr. P.V. Subramaniam with the book that took him ten years to bring out as a collection of a thousand “eureka moments”.

The Udder Side of Dentistry Every morning for the last decade (minus the last two years), Dr. P.V. Subramaniam, MDS, dental surgeon and consultant periodontist, would get up very early, have a cup of coffee and sit in front of the computer. Then he would open up his Dictionary, “looking for words that lent themselves to being corrupted.” We can just imagine him doing it. Clairvoyant –a quality appearing in your wife when you are planning an impropriety. Cling Film – pornographic cinema. Heartrending – your bill for bypass surgery. Joystick – a device used by pilots for self-gratification. Then he would get about his day, usually in his clinic, messing around with people’s gums. That is what periodontists do, which is, by the way, a word seemingly unrecognised by American

dictionaries online. In the course of his day, he sometimes had a eureka moment. Jerry – a chap giving Jews gas trouble. Promiscuity – to make promises to keeps. Hellhole – You have to sin to get in. Dogma – so that’s what the sonofabitch calls his mother. All the time he practised on his family, his friends, his wife. We can imagine that too. Bellow – motherin-law’s response to your hello. Obstetrician – you screw up, he delivers. Sex appeal – a nocturnal begging ritual performed by husbands. Piggy bank – the retirement corpus you’re left with after years of bringing home the bacon. At some point someone suggested that he put all his words together in book form, and his dictionary searches became much

Not in Botswana!

Yesterday, the heart broke as another lovely illusion shattered like the finest crystal and fell to the ground, on learning that a Punekar had actually been killed in the town of Gaborone in Botswana. He had gone out for a meal with some office colleagues and was attacked and shot dead at point-blank range by a gang comprising seven robbers. They got away with three cellphones, cash and a cheque, all in the local currency called pula. We have a large collection of the series written by best-selling novelist Alexander Mcall Smith based upon the adventures of the No. 1 lady detective in Botswana, Precious Ramotswe. So charmed were we when we read the first in the series, full of

Luckily, wife Sarita, also a dentist in the practice with him in Chembur, concurred. “She’s my in-house editor, sounding board, critic, admirer”, says the good dentist, the last slightly tentatively. “He has a great way of delivering funny lines,” says Sarita. And so began a search for a publisher, which took about a year. “Sarita said let’s write to all the publishing groups, all over the world, all over the internet. She sent out around 150 to 200 proposals. We didn’t know we would need an agent. I sat back in great satisfaction like I had just written the Gita. Meanwhile, my wife was getting standard template replies. No.” “Then Sarita wrote to Fingerprint Publishing. They replied immediately which was a change!” Meanwhile, they used all that waiting time to get the content in

descriptions of a beautiful country surrounded by South Africa like the hole in a doughnut, where the people were as gentle, courteous and as uncomplicated as a plain rippling with corn in a time of plenty, that we actually researched Botswana. Imagine our delight when we discovered that it all seemed to be real, that for once art was actually imitating life. Of course we planned to go there at least once, flying across violent South Africa into peaceful, lovely, old-time Botswana where everyone seemed to care for everyone and a fat, fictional lady detective had been adopted as the unofficial ambassador for the country. All over now. Even there it would A glimpse of the House of Parliament in Gaborone, Botswana, arguably the most peaceful place in South Africa.

the first act and out came a guy, known to most as Siddhart apparently, who tried to get the audience to laugh, but we were tough nuts to crack. Halfway through came Bharti, who didn’t succeed in getting us to laugh either. Guess TV works better for her. Just when we felt a yawn coming on, out came Cyrus again, to introduce – who in our opinion stole the thunder – All India Bakchod. No, I’m not kidding. That’s what they’re called. From the moment they stepped on, one-byone, they had the audience cracked up and the thunderous applause at the end of their act, only proved that they were the stars of the show. What followed was an attempt to keep the audience laughing, and Krishna and Sudesh, familiar faces in comedy, managed to more or less succeed, but the kind of laughter that resulted from AIB’s jokes was unmatched. India needs a lot more of this tongue-in-cheek humour to get us through the monotony that seems unbreakable, because just 15 minutes of these guys left us all in splits for the largest part of the night. Imagine an hour with them!

Bhatkal’s

Head of Indian Mujahideen had around 200 cell phones and hundreds of SIM cards stashed away in Raxaul from where he was picked up By Vishnudas Sheshrao

D

readed terrorist and the alleged head of the Indian Mujahideen (IM), Yasin Bhatkal, used several cell phones and SIM cards to make his calls and stay undetected, say officials. At least 200 cell phones and hundreds of national and international SIM cards have been recovered from his hideout. Bhatkal, who is allegedly responsible for at least half a dozen

border hideout

terrorist attacks across the country, including the deadly Mumbai blasts of July 2011, the German Bakery blast in Pune, and other blasts in Bangalore, Hyderabad and Delhi, was arrested by the Bihar police last week from Raxaul town, which is located on the border of India and Nepal. “Bhatkal never used one single SIM card to make calls,“ said P.K. Madan, District in-Charge, Superintendent of Police, East Champaran. According to sources, the Pakistan-based Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) had been co-operating with all terrorist groups in India to carry out blasts within the country, but over the last decade, 30-yearold Bhatkal decided to make his own organisation autonomous and capable of orchestrating blasts across India without the assistance of the ISI.

Officials say that the National Investigative Agency (NIA) and the Bihar police were working on Bhatkal’s arrest for over two months. However, the investigating agency got credible information regarding his whereabouts only three days before the operation. In fact, before Bhatkal’s arrest, there was a communal riot in Raxaul that led to a difference of opinion on whether the operation should be carried out or not. Local officials believed that arresting Bhatkal would intensify the violence. However, the NIA Superintendent of Police, who also hails from Bihar and the District Superintendent from East Champaran, convinced them to carry out the operation. “It was a well co-ordinated operation with no internal issues among officials in the team,” said Mandal.

The terror mastermind remained unnoticed on the slippery roads of Raxaul town.

Yasin Bhatkal found it easy to blend with the crowds near this eatery. The embarrassment on the faces of people that live in Nahar Chouk, the area from where Bhatkal was arrested, is evident. When I asked a boy standing at one of the little eateries lining the street, if he knew where Bhatkal lived and where he was arrested from, his expression changed and he flatly stated that he knows no one by that name. As part of the investigations of the

serial bomb blasts, various states and the government had announced a reward of Rs.10 lakh to whoever would provide information leading to Bhatkal’s arrest. When I asked an official if the government had rewarded the informer, the official refused to comment. vishnudas.sheshrao@afternoondc.in

MUMBAI | SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2013

By A Special Correspondent

T

he BJP yesterday alleged a massive rigging in the deletion of names from the voter list in assembly constituencies won by the BJP-Shiv Sena under pressure from the ruling Congress-NCP alliance. Speaking to newspersons, senior BJP leader Dr. Kirit Somaiya and MLC Adv. Ashish Shelar alleged that more names have been deleted from assembly constituencies held by the BJP-Sena, whereas negligible deletions have taken place from constituencies held by the Congress-NCP. Meanwhile the Election Commission of India (ECI) officials in the state have refuted the allegations. Shelar disclosed that in 67 booths in the Bandra West assembly constituency 8,716 voters’ names have been deleted in areas which had voted for the BJP-Sena in the last elections. Somaiya revealed that the names of several voters residing in the Mulund constituency have been deleted on the grounds of duplicate entries, termed as deceased or having migrated elsewhere. In one such case, the name of Archana Ramesh Bagave has been deleted on the grounds that her name figured in Mulund, Gorai and Vikhroli. He added that upon the verification of photo-electoral rolls, all the three Archana’s were different. Somaiya disclosed that the ECI has taken serious note of the abnormal deletions and has deputed two of its officers from New Delhi to probe the alleged irregularities. He added that while names are being deleted, the assembly constituencies of Mankhurd-Shivajinagar, 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 expla-

nation and the names of voters shifting residences have been added without seeking proper documentation. Meanwhile, ECI officials in the state, while speaking to the ADC on the condition of anonymity, have refuted the allegations of the BJP leaders. An EC official disclosed that the due process of the law has been followed while deleting the names. The names of voters are not deleted summarily. Moreover the voter list in Mumbai had become so bloated that it almost equaled the overall population of the city. The official added that the process of deletion and addition of names is still to continue and that the EC has six months more to rectify mistakes if any.

Cong-BJP lock horns over govt-aid to madrasas By Prashant Hamine

Speaking to newspersons here yesterday, state BJP spokesman, Madhav Bhandari stated that it has been the state government’s policy that granting aid to educational institutions on religious lines, is against the provisions of the constitution. He said that as per the rules, the government regulates the administration of educational institutions to which it grants aid for administration and other expenditures. Bhandari wanted to know whether the government will now also regulate the administration of madrasas. The state BJP spokesperson stated that about 3,000 aided Urdu medium schools in the state have for the past several years not been receiving adequate government grants. Moreover, the teachers’ vacancies in these Urdu schools have not been filled for several years now.

T

he ruling Congress and opposition BJP have locked horns over the state government’s decision to allocate aid for the modernization of madrasas in the state. The BJP, while opposing the government’s move, has contended that the government is discriminating and granting aid only to madrasas and not to aided Urdu medium schools. State Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant on the other hand has claimed that during the BJP led NDA regime, the then HRD minister Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi had advocated giving aid for the purpose of modernization of madrasas without interfering in their administration. In the 2012 Gujarat elections the BJP in its poll manifesto had again spoken of the same issue, he added. Madhav Bhandari, state BJP spokesman. Sushil Kadam | ADC

Feet and inches, length and breadth?” He looked at me sheepishly. “When I bring the doors we will adjust sir!” I have seen such adjustments before.

ality – a happening that takes place in our country. What happened in Gujarat after the burning of Hindus alive and what happened in Delhi after Indira Gandhi was shot is most condemnable. But we have no go but to accept the happening as unavoidable. It is nothing but a massive bloody tit for tat. The Delhi and the Godhra incidents have helped the Congress and the BJP to spar and point accusing fingers at one another. The Congress in Delhi has managed to distance itself from the Sikh riots, but in Gujarat, Narendra Modi is still trying hard to extricate

ROUND-UP A.R. Kanangi himself from the bloody mess. Somehow he has been singled out for blame. He is not given a visa to visit the United States. The U.K. has changed its mind only recently and invited him to visit the country. Evidently they are blaming him for the 2002 riots in Gujarat. What is necessary is to anticipate the response and take quick steps to deal with it. For instance, when Godhra happened, only those who committed the crime should have been dealt with and punished. The slightest provocation is enough for people to create trouble. A pair of chappals on the neck of a statue of Ambedkar resulted in a minor riot. There are enough people across the country who are constantly looking for an opportunity to trigger a violent response to provocative action.

All this, because

Without some crutch, it is difficult for people to survive. Life is full of problems; all are trying to find answers. What is life all about? Enter religions and also Godmen, babas, yogis, swamis, sanyasis…. They claim to have the power to provide the answer, offer guidance and find a meaning. In our country perhaps there are more such men than in any other country. They claim to know the meaning of life, about ‘spiritualism’, about the path to salvation…. Aasaram is a baba who is now in jail. Aasaram has thousands of followers. Evidently they have total faith in him. He gives them solace, solves everyday problems, provides guidance. How did they come to have faith in him? I will narrate what another yogi has to say about it all – how to make people believe. The yogi is no more. He was about 80 when he died. He was married to three women. He did go to the Himalayas, sit at the feet of a guru and learn the ‘tricks of the trade’. When he came down, he could do many yogic feats: He could drink nitric acid, walk on red-hot embers, move the intestines in his stomach, drink a huge quantity of water and bring it out through his nose…. But he said that these are all ‘tricks’. It does not require any super power to do this. At a press conference in Mumbai, he demonstrated his tricks. The yogi and I became friends. He told me how he was starving before he decided to be a yogi. He was pushing a cinema poster cart to earn a living. Those days he missed many a meal. Then he tried his hand at horse racing. Finally, he managed to collect enough money to go to Paris and from there to the United States. There he met the daughter of a tobacco tycoon who gave him a place to stay. He gave her a new name: Gita. He told her: Eat less, drink less – all will be well. She used to clean his flat. Finally when she decided to come back home, she gave him a car. He could not produce the necessary documents nor did he have any money to pay customs duty, and the car was impounded. But he told me: “I did not deceive anyone. I knew more than that rascal – Satya Sai Baba – who was afraid I would expose him. But I know what all these babas are doing. They start ashrams and foundations and earn crores.” Asaram would have been perhaps described by yogi L.S. Rao the same way he described Satya Sai Baba….

we do not like to involve the detail! This happened last week again: In my bathroom there were some wires sticking out, and my electrician told me it was dangerous. “But I don’t have the same tile to cover those wires!” I said. “No problem sir, I will put a small plastic board on it!” He came, armed with electric drill, plastic board and four small screws. And now for the last one week I have been staring angrily at a lopsided plastic board that grins back at me every time I use the cloak. “Hi!” it says, “How do you like my crookedness?” Yes that’s what we should call ourselves when we don’t manage the detail, “Crooked people!” Not because we are crooks, oh no, but that we are slightly tilted in our focus. Straighten up! Start looking into details; you can save yourself a lot of ‘adjustments’..! bobsbanter@gmail.com

Nation pins hopes on Raghuram Rajan AT a time when our country’s economy is in coma and ICU, Raghuram Rajan’s appointed as the 23rd governor of the Reserve Bank of India is the best thing to have happened in these times of inflation, recession and hardships. Highly educated and a man of principles, Raghuram Rajan is a man with a no nonsense approach apart from being extremely hardworking and a person who believes in total transparency. Rajan loves to play with a straight bat, mind well balanced with the body which helps one to take guard against all eventualities apart from taking a positive stance which builds not just confidence but gives courage and hope to come out a winner from a dismal and hopeless situation. He is the ‘Tendulkar’ of the economic and financial world and a man whom the billion and half population of our country would rely on to turn tables from disaster to prosperity. Here is wishing Rajan all the very best in his endeavour. — S.N. Kabra, Goregaon

HIGH EXPECTATIONS: Raghuram Rajan, with his expertise in the finance sector, can hopefully bring the country out of the economic rut. ceived with mixed feelings in that he is one more in the high-profile ‘House of Economics’ from the IMF to steady the economy that seems to have gone astray and the inability of the alumnus of the Oxbridge to make the right noises and take initiatives to contain the numerous lists of ‘deficits’ including that of ‘leadership’ does not induce ‘optimism’, as of now.

Secular approach THE latest decision of the Maharashtra govt. to grant subsidy to the 200 Madarsas in the State is in keeping with the secular approach of the progressive Cong-NCP alliance. This way they have reached the half-way mark on their journey to achieve the title of a truly secular administration. For completing the remaining 50 per cent of their travel, they should take a leaf out of the revolutionary measure adopted by their W. Bengal counterpart. In order to be on a perfectly safe side, they should start paying salaries to the Imams and Muazzins of all mosques in the State.

NOTHING succeeds like success in life. As the Indian economy is facing the worst crisis we tried all permutations and combinations. Dr. Manmohan Singh an economist himself took reins of RBI as Governor and brought lots of developments. Then he became Finance Minister and did extremely well. But after becoming Prime Minister, the Finance Ministry changed hands and Pranab Mukherjee could not do much and he was promoted to the post of President. Then P. Chidambaram assumed office as Finance Minister and the position has become bad to worse since 2008. He could not manage things properly and the country is now facing free fall of Indian Rupee and the Indian Economy is offer pension and have 26 per cent foreign direct investment. The cap will, however, follow the limit in the insurance sector and would be in-

downgraded by the credit agencies. Now it is time for the new RBI Governor to take charge and with his rich experience and formidable energy and glamour we can expect our economy to change drastically. I wish him good luck through the pages of your news paper. — C.K. Subramaniam, Sanpada

  

IT is not a smooth ride for the new RBI Governor as the Indian Economy has received a setback. It is clearly evident that the Governorship of the Central Bank is not meant to win votes or Facebook “likes” but to look at the crux problem from the grassroot level. It is always a good beginning for the newcomer but the spirit and enthusiasm should not die down after some time by seeing the stationary position of Indian Economy. The currency has plunged nearly 20 per cent since May as Asia’s third largest economy confronts its worst crisis since 19901991. Rajan has few policy options to revive the rupee but one thing he can do immediately is explain to financial markets more clearly what steps the central bank is taking and the thinking behind them. It is indeed a thousand dollar question and only a ‘wait and watch’ approach will be the solution to the problem. — S. Abhisheck Ramaswamy, Nerul

Vanzara is Cong’s anti-Modi weapon IT seems that not a single close relative of the Police DGP Vanzara was there among 59 innocent and weaponless karsevaks, who were burnt alive and killed mercilessly by the terrorists on February 27, 2002 in the Sabarmati Express fire. Otherwise, Vanzara would not have written such a thoughtless letter. In addition, people also strongly believe that Congress, caught in various multi-crore rupees’ anti-national scams since 2004, mainly the Coalgate scam, has encouraged Vanzara with an offer of some secret ‘help’ to go against Modi, so that people’s mind is diverted as well as Congress can’t have any fear of Modi to be the next Indian Prime Minister against Rahul Gandhi. Isn’t it shocking also to observe that Kalmadi, Kanimozhi and A. Raja, the accused corrupt are scot free with the help of bail? This is the anti-BJP and antiModi conspiracy of the ‘Dirty Tricks Department’ of powerhungry Congress.

Added to this are the startling revelations of Vanzara at the most inopportune time for him. It is interesting to note that he has stated that “dreaming to be the PM will be destructive” and that he is not doing so. All this comes as an anticlimax to his fierce campaigning for himself so far and quite a few in his own party will be mightily pleased about his rightabout-turn though the Sangh which has been betting on him heavily will be disappointed.

Then, he was admitted to a private hospital, Aditi hospital in Malad, on Monday and was taking treatment there. On Thursday, his condition started worsening and

he was shifted to Riddhi Vinayak Hospital. He was on ventilator there. And on Friday morning he succumbed,” BMC’s epidemiologist Dr Mangala Gomare said. Following this death, the BMC conducted a rapid fever survey in the area that covered 1,200 households and found 10 to 12 cases of fever in Rathodi village in Malad. “One of them is a suspected case of dengue and is taking treatment at a private hospital. The others having fever are also on medication,” said Dr. Gomare. The BMC also found around 10 breeding spots in the area.

While the SEBI, according to the Forum, termed the NSEL issue outside its jurisdiction and thus, the fiasco encourages the equity market regulator to take corrective measures not to spill over to stock markets, the FMC awaited additional power to regulate spot exchanges. philip.varghese@afternoondc.in Azad Shrivastav | ADC

‘Dahi Handi’ is a sport! By A Staff Reporter

A

day after a 24-year-old Govinda succumbed to his injuries after falling off a human pyramid on August 29, and another govinda continues to battle for life at the KEM Hospital, an advocate has moved the Bombay High Court with a petition seeking to recognize ‘Dahi Handi’ as a sport and to streamline the process of selection of Govindas in the team. According to the petition filed by advocate Syed Ejaz Abbas Naqvi, “There are many sports in this country which have not been properly taken care of by the Ministry of Sports and Welfare. Among them is the dahi handi sport, which is also called as Govinda sport. The name Govinda Sport (Build-

ing Human Pyramid and Breaking The Hung Earthen Pot) originated from the 'Dahi Handi' (Dahi-Curd, Handi-Earthen Pot) festival popular in Mumbai, Thane And Navi Mumbai, Kolhapur And Pune in Maharashtra. The ‘Dahi Handi’ event, over the years, has become very famous with the involvement of political parties, proliferation of 24-hour news channels and online media and increasing sponsorships from various corporates, resulting in high-hung earthen pots and higher prize money which attracts lakhs of people as audience. Nowadays, the prize money for breaking this high hung earthen pot can range between Rs.1 lakh to Rs. 25 crore.” The petition further added, “A team of Govindas

called Jai Jawan Govinda Pathak Jogeshwari in Mumbai made a Guinness World Record by forming a Human Pyramid of 9-tiers at a Dahi Handi event organized in Thane city. The Maharashtra Government, last year informed that it was planning to confer status of ‘sport activity’ on the traditional ‘Dahi Handi’. Last year, the state Sports and Youth Welfare Minister Padmakar Valvi told the Legislative Asssembly that the government had received such a proposal. However, newspapers have recently reported that this year, there were as many as 625 injuries and 1 fatality during this festival.” The petition also said, “The Permission to hold Dahi Handi congregation is allowed by the police station as per provisions of the

Bombay Police Act. The said Govinda Festival or sport is henceforth allowed by the police. Since there are a lot of traffic issues, the injured person cannot reach hospital on time. The group and their trainer should take insurance policy. The organisations organising this activity is, or the participants group is, responsible for injury. The responsibility of security and safety rests with the organisers. The government cannot just turn a blind eye, and some regulations and protective safeguards must be in place for Dahi Handi. When the congregation and functions permission is as per Bombay Police Act, can a person be allowed to climb on the top of the dangerous height and can the height of ‘Dahi handi’ be regulated by law?”

Shudhh Desi Romance

At: Fame and other cinemas Directed by Maneesh Sharma Cast: Parineeti Chopra, Sushant Singh Rajput, Vaani Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor and others Rating: 

S

TRICTLY speaking Maneesh Sharma’s Shuddh Desi Romance, is not really shuddh desi by Bollywood standards. A world in women are not devastated by break-ups, don’t pine for lost love, have live-in relationships and initiate pre-marital sex, is not something Bollywood is still comfortable with; India is just about starting to shed its prudishness, but is not unapologetically promiscuous yet. Shudh Desi Romance is a lot like the director’s earlier film, Band Baaja Baraat; like so many other Yash Raj productions, this one too

Zanjeer

At: Fame and other cinemas Directed by Apoorva Lakhia Cast: Ram Charan, Priyanka Chopra, Prakash Raj, Mahie Gill, Atul Kulkarni and others Rating: 

Rajput) and Gayatri (Parineeti Chopra) do ‘assignments’ with him. On the way to his own wedding, with Gayatri posing as his sister, Raghu falls for her. She is sharp, plain-speaking, smoking, drinking, unapologetically independent (her family is in distant Guwahati). He feels instant attraction and runs away from the wedding to Tara (Vaani Kapoor). Soon he has moved in with Gayatri, pretending to the neighbours that he is her brother, though nobody is fooled by the charade. Indian double standards have already been deplored before — all characters speak to the camera when voicing of opinion is required (a bit of lazy writing here). No matter how sassy Gayatri may appear, she is damaged in some way by past relationships — which is a bit of a downer, as if saying that women have to pay for past ‘sins.’ After a happy period of togetherness, when they decide to get married, Gayatri runs away.

Don’t think too much and SDR has its moments of charm and some well-written lines. Could make for Deepa Gahlot an enjoyable date movie.

FILM REVIEW

Just Plain Awful

T

HERE are enough recent examples to show that cult films should be left alone. But there will always be foolhardy directors around, who think they can better something that film buffs remember with fondness. Prakash Mehra’s 1973 film had a Salim-Javed script that had given a fresh touch to what was even then a formulaic revenge plot — their characters, crackling dialogue and dare one say, a dash of the poetic to the unlikely romance between a troubled cop and a streetsmart chaku-chhuri sharpener. Apoorva Lakhia’s calamitous remake retains the names of the main characters and some memorable sequences are rehashed, but where he attempts his own thing, he makes an unholy mess. This Zanjeer owes more to the loud Southern actioners that inspired films like Dabangg and Rowdy Rathore — all nuance flattened, all genuine

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL Rs. 599 Cast: Erica Linz, Igor Zaripov Director: Andrew Adamson

F

OR those who love the circus, this is a visual feast with unbelievable acrobatic stunts, outrageous costumes, good background score by the Beatles, all this, backed by a heavy display of Love, which is the basis of the story here. Anyone who saw Cirque Du Soleil’s tribute to the Beatles A Day in the Life perform Let it Be at the Grammys in 2008 would know how cinematic the show is. The film does not have a great plot, and is also dialogue-free...but at the Cirque Du Soleil you would really not go for the plot, as you would be engrossed watching actors leap, soar, swim and dance with the legendary performers of Cirque du Soleil. Worlds Away is a stunning compilation of acts from seven Las Vegas shows: O, Kà, Mystère, Criss Angel Believe, Zumanity, Viva Elvis and The Beatles Love. These acts are woven together to tell a story of a young woman (Cirque performer Erica Linz) visiting a run-down carnival on the edge of town. She is mesmerised watching a male aerialist (Igor Zaripov) performing. Stunned by her beauty, he misses his grip and falls on the circus ground… into the sand of the circus ring floor which collapses to suck him in. the young woman leaves her seat and

rushes to help him only to get sucked in an ethereal world. It turns out that he has been captured. Once there she searches for the man she has only glimpsed, but is destined to love. She sees many cool circus acts in this new place as she looks for him. She seeks the help of the circus workers to find him. The aerialist and the girl almost find each other but are attacked by huge creatures. The film showcases everything from synchronised water ballet to martial arts-inspired combat, aerial silk acrobatics, contortionism and the really frightening Wheel of Death. Each impeccably choreographed presentation is breathtaking, defying the laws of the human body’s capabilities.

Why on earth are Vijay’s idiot sidekicks called Amar-Prem? Why did Lakhia reduce Ajit’s Teja to a clown? Why is Mona Darling (Mahie Gill) so unappealing? A glimpse of the original Zanjeer being watched by Teja and Mona on the television has more zing that this whole film put together. Why, even the music is not a patch on the original Kalyanji-Anandji soundtrack. The next time any filmmaker thinks of a remake, they must watch RGV Ki Aag and Apoorva Lakhia ki Zanjeer, and halt right in their tracks.

LEGAL

Determining a property’s correct market value

MUMBAI | SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2013

EXPERT SPEAK Gajanan Khergamker

is a media-legal consultant on Housing, Intellectual Property, Medico-legal, RTI and Consumer Law issues

How does one determine the exact ‘market value’ of a property? Is there any uniform set of guidelines or rules to help one do it? — Shekhar Rai

FIGURING THE PAGDI SYSTEM IN THE ISLAND CITY

Picture for representational purpose only

WHERE redevelopment is concerned, very often, in the island city particularly in olden parts, there’s reference to pagdi properties. The consideration paid to a landlord as a fine, premium or consideration (pagdi) has been legalised by Section 56 of Rent Control Act, 1999. It is now also lawful for a tenant to receive any amount in consideration of the relinquishment or transfer of his tenancy. Incidentally, in the Rent Act, 1974 giving or receiving pagdi in cash was held ‘illegal’ hence there was extensive use of black money. Now too, in cities like Mumbai, for the transfer of tenancy, 33 per cent of the amount in transaction is paid in

cash to the landlord to effect the transfer of tenancy or assignment. If one wants to sell his home for Rs nine lakhs, he will have to pay Rs three lakh of the amount to the landlord. The purchaser of land in a pagdi system is said to be a tenant and has limited rights because a very nominal rent is collected by the landlord and receipt given accordingly. However, when there is redevelopment of the said property, the landlord usually makes a deal with the developer and stakes his claim of his 33 per cent and accordingly takes profit out of the property permanently. Those who are in accommodation or in possession of the said property after redevelopment become the sole owners of the said premises. Section 56 of the Maharashtra Rent Control Act, 1999 reads as follows: Sec. 56: Rights of Tenant and Landlord to receive lawful charges – Notwithstanding anything contained in this Act, it shall be lawful for 1) The tenant or any person acting or purporting to act on behalf of the tenant to claim or receive an sum or any consideration, as a condition of the relinquishment, transfer or assignment of his tenancy or any premises; 2) The landlord or any person acting or purporting to act on behalf of the landlord to receive any fine, premium or other like sum deposit or any consideration on respect of the grant, or renewal of a lease of any premises, or for giving his consent to the transfer of a lease to any other person. Queries may be mailed to gajanan@draftcraft.in

There have been a series of attempts to define the market value of a property but in the event of no uniform set of guidelines and rules, it’s near impossible to evolve a market value that takes into consideration all possible eventualities. It’s during redevelopment that residents have to declare the ‘market value’ of their homes besides FSI details that are ultimately translated into cash and/or space benefits in the new avatars. Technically, although the term ‘market value’ appears in sections 23 and 24 of the Land Acquisition Act, 1894 and the expression ‘fair market value’ appears in section 269(d) of the Income-tax Act, 1961 nowhere is the expression defined. When the Law Commission of India attempted to consider the issue of defining this expression in the context of the Land Acquisition Act, 1894, it thought it better to leave the matter to “natural growth” at the hands of the court and declined from laying down any uniform set of rules. Courts take the ‘market value’ to be the price a normal prudent and willing owner as seller, not obliged to sell owing to any extraneous reasons, might reasonably expect to obtain from a normal prudent and willing purchaser having due regard for its existing condition. It is the consensus between the buyer and the seller which decides the price at which a particular property is finally bought or sold and comprises as the ‘market value’. The ‘market value’ is considered as the commercial value of the property with absolutely no reference to abstract legal rights. Also, ‘market value’ implies actual sale in the market and not a conceptual or perceptible sale. For example, a valuation is only an opinion being expressed however the final test is the value a property actually fetches when sold. Finally, the time at which the market value is assessed is of extreme importance as the market value of immoveable properties, as with any other mercantile commodities, fluctuates drastically with time. So, it’s the price at which the property changes hands from a willing, yet not desperate, seller to a willing, yet not very anxious buyer, dealing at arm’s length.

BIRTHDAY FORECAST: An extremely beneficial year lies ahead provided you are willing to make an effort to help yourself. Plan your budget carefully as you may not have a very regular flow of money. Delays and snags could cause anxiety. Those in artistic or creative fields will do extremely well. Educational and sports activities come under favorable planetary influence. Your relationship with family members improves while those in love could face some disappointments. BABIES BORN TODAY: Tall, imposing, well built, healthy and long-lived. Will be extremely impulsive, honest and hard working. Will be well educated, artistic, creative and humane. A career in any service industry social work, academics or a creative field will lead to gains and success. ARIES (March 21 - April 20): You will have to take some pragmatic decisions about your future. No doubt you are ready for the eminent change but do take your loved ones in to confidence about your plans. You will find a solution which everybody is comfortable with.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 20): Take care not to be a victim of false information. Listening to gossip could have repercussions on the way you respond to the views of those that matter in your work set up. A windfall is also on the cards for you. On the domestic front, a family celebration is fun but hectic and has you weary at the end of the day.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Be prepared for any emergency at work. You may just have to make sudden plans for travel out of town, though briefly. There may also be additional responsibilities, which you may not be in a position to shoulder right now. Make your position clear rather than suffer and offend someone close.

CANCER (June 21 - July 21): You may receive an offer for work or business from overseas. Try to postpone important decisions for a while yet. There could be some other pressing issues that require your attention. Family life is happy but there could be undercurrents of tension. Your mate may be feeling off color today.

LEO (July 22 - August 21): The day looks promising but you have a lot to do. Try to Delegate responsibility to achieve your targets easily. A hectic schedule will leave you exhausted with fatigue. You could be asking for trouble where your health is concerned. Youngsters can look forward to an exciting time with friends and parties.

VIRGO (August 22 - September 21): You can look forward to an opportunity to make sudden profit. A lucrative deal comes your way just by being at the right place at the right time. Your regular help may not turn up today throwing you completely out of gear. Try to make the best of the present circumstances.

LIBRA (September 22 - October 22): It seems someone is trying to pass on a liability giving you false assurances of quick gains. It would be better to stay out of trouble. Somehow you are a great support and help to other people or friend but your own life seems to be crumbling around you. This too shall pass.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21): Stability and increase in your work activities is assured. The current period is extremely beneficial one and monetary returns from your earlier investments will be substantial. Security at work will give the confidence that you need to explore new areas and move from one success to another.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 December 20): You could be a bit confused about what to do next. This is more a time to wait and sort your thoughts out. Prepare a contingency plan if things do not work out the way you would like them to. Things are not as bleak as they look. There is always a door somewhere waiting to be opened but the time must be right.

CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 19): You may not like the environment at work right now, where you feel constricted. Do not go for a tempting change as things may not work out the way expected. Your career growth could get affected. Being gullible and trusting, you could get taken in by a person whose intentions are not that sincere.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18): You are now much closer to achieving goals in your career or profession. Meetings and negotiations for proposals scheduled for today will yield good results. You can expect an immediate response. Family life is happy. Your mate will be in a particularly good mood this evening.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20): Your monetary position will be strengthened. Travel for a long distance journey is likely or there could be some favorable news from overseas. Several barriers in an association will be overcome and this will lead to trust and better understanding of each other. Look forward to a quiet evening with your beloved just enjoying the good things of life together.

IN BRIEF Narang moots IPL-style shooting league

HYDERABAD: Inspired by the success of cricket's Indian Premier League, ace marksman and London Olympic medallist Gagan Narang has favoured a similar club competition for shooting to popularise the sport in the country. "It's quite a challenging project because the Olympic style of shooting is a little difficult. The challenge is to make it more spectator-friendly. So, we are working on it. Hopefully, we will soon come out with a league in all three formats which will be shot gun, rifle and pistol," Narang told PTI here. He, however, said evolving a shooting league is a challenging issue as the rules of the game are different for each format which needs to be popularised among sports-lovers.

EW YORK: Defending champion Andy Murray crashed out of the US Open on Thursday as Stanislas Wawrinka pulled a shocker to reach his first Grand Slam semifinal, a matchup with world number one Novak Djokovic. Swiss ninth seed Wawrinka stunned the Olympic andWimbledon champion 6-4, 6-3, 6-2, to book a last-four date with Djokovic, the 2011 winner from Serbia who ousted Russian 21st seed MikhailYouzhny 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-0.

JOHANNESBURG: An under-fire Haroon Lorgat will be desperate to solve the impasse regarding India's year-end tour of South Africa when he meets BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel at the Chief Executives' Meet at the ICC Headquarters in Dubai on September 16 and 17. Cricket South Africa (CSA) is worried about incurring huge losses if BCCI has its way about playing a curtailed series of two Tests and three ODIs instead of originally scheduled three Tests, seven ODIs and two T20 Internationals. In response to the recent reports, Lorgat said, "There has rightly been concern about reports of a shortened tour by India but I am looking forward to meeting Sanjay (Patel) so that we can work out the best possible schedule under the present circumstances."

NEW DELHI: India's wrestling and squash fraternity is waiting with bated breath for the International Olympic Committee's highlyanticipated vote on September 8 to decide on the inclusion of one of the sports to the 2020 Olympic roster. A sense of anxiety has gripped the country's top grapplers and racqueters ahead of IOC's crucial meeting during its ongoing 125th Session in Buenos Aires where the world body will choose among baseball/softball, wrestling and squash for the lone available spot for the 2020 Summer Games.

UMBAI: Former Indian skipper turned commentator Ravi Shastri came out in full support for the Indian cricket board backing the Union Agricultural Minister Sharad Pawar in cricket administration and ousted Indian Premier League [IPL] commissioner Lalit Modi for transforming the shortest version of the game. Shastri, who was speaking at the annual Dilip Sardesai Memorial Lecture at the Bombay Gymkhana supported former president N Srinivasan, stated that he shouldn’t have been forced to step down as the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India [BCCI]. Speaking on the heightening criticism, which has plagued Indian cricket especially its administration where voices called for heads of sportspersons running the game, Shastri said Sharad Pawar is an exception and it was he who brought properties like the Indian Premier League [IPL] to its current form. “The BCCI for long has been a punching ball for all. What I tell people is to see what they have done for the sport. You got to see where the Indian cricket is and the state of other associations. It has been six years and it is so huge that it attracts so much attention. One of

seventh US Open semi-final in a row in hopes of a fourth trip in a row to the final, Djokovic lost his first set of the fortnight but reached his 14th consecutive Grand Slam semi-final, the second-longest all-time streak. "Definitely (I'm proud)," Djokovic said. "I've always been trying to play my best tennis at a Grand Slam and every Grand Slam offers something different." Spanish second seed Rafael Nadal, a 12-time Grand Slam champion, and French eighth seed Richard Gasquet, whose only prior last-four Slam run came in 2007 at Wimbledon, will meet in Saturday's other semifinal. Wawrinka is only 2-12 versus Djokovic, including fourth-round losses at last year's US Open and this year's Australian Open, but reigning Australian Open champion Djokovic says he'll forget about his 11match win streak over the Swiss. "It's going to be a very close match. I think there is no clear favorite," Djokovic said. "He showed why he deserves to be in the top 10 in the world. I also feel good on the hardcourts and quite confident."

the reasons why IPL is today was Sharad Pawar who gave it the push which it needed. He gave Lalit Modi a free hand. Lalit in his own way conceptualized it and was brilliant. Lot of people tell me, politicians and sports don’t go along. All I tell those guys, don’t generalise this statement, you have got to see this guy at close quarters,” said Ravi Shastri

in the course of his discourse.

I WOULD NOT RESIGN IF I WAS IN SRINIVASAN’S PLACE The growing calls for N. Srinivasan’s head made him step aside, however, Shastri said that it was wrong of him to step aside following the allegations made against him. He said, “N. Srinivasan is a terrific administrator and I know

he came under a lot of heat in recent times. A lot of people asked me if Srinivasanshould resign. I told them if I was in his position or was a captain who had three players involved in spot-fixing where the sequence of events was similar, I would in no freaking way resign. This game has taught me not to pass on the buck. The school I belong to tells me to take responsibility and get your house back in order. Indian cricket is in safe hands, however, I believe everything about the BCCI isn’t perfect, they need a PR [public relations] arm in place which comes across to the media. “

DON’T SCREW THE UMPIRE’S MIND The aftermath of the Ashes series left a bitter taste among players as well as the governing bodies of England as well as Australia regarding DRS usage. Shastri said that India’s position on the implementation of the Decision Review System in its current form stands vindicated after the recent events.
