Border with B’desh will be sealed in two-year time GUWAHATI, MAY 21 (PTI): Sealing of the borders with Bangladesh will be completed in two year’s time to put an end to infiltration, Assam’s Chief Minister-to-be Sarbananda Sonowal said on Saturday. A product of the student movement of the 80s during the anti-foreigners agitation, Sonowal, who steered the BJP to victory in the elections, has put the issue of infiltration and attempts to check them as his government’s priority. BJP had made infiltration one of the major issues in the poll campaign. “Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh had given a two-year time frame for permanent sealing of the border. We will work towards finishing within that timeframe the border sealing work, including the riverine border,” he told PTI in an interview. Asked what method or law he intended to apply to stop infiltration from Bangladesh as he was against the now repealed IMDT Act, Sonowal said, “When the final draft of the (ongoing) updated National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam is published, it will be clear who are the citizens and infiltrators will get identified. “The problem will get solved and action will then be taken against infiltrators as per existing law.”

350 people die every day on india’s roads Madurai | May 21

He needs spiritual care .. which prayer center is the best in Nagaland?

o F

About 350 people die every day on India’s roads - more than any other country with those under 18 and two-wheeler riders most vulnerable, according to various data. An Airbus A-320 carries roughly 180 passengers, so the daily death toll on India’s roads is almost double that figure. “If (two) planes full of people crashed every day, wouldn’t the situation get more attention,” asked Piyush Tiwari, founder and president of Save LIFE, an advocacy that has used Right-To-Information queries to disaggregate trafficdeath data. Indians under 18 years constitute 11.93 percent of traffic fatalities, according to a 2014 Save LIFE RTI query. The toll primarily stems from rash driving, below-global-standards roads and a shunning of safety - either deliberately or through ignorance. It was in February that Union Minister for Road Transport & Highways, Nitin Gadkari told parliament that 130,000 people die in 500,000 mishaps on Indian roads.

In 2015, a World Health Organization (WHO) study said India did not meet international standards of road safety, the areas of vulnerability being overspeeding, not using helmets, not using or misusing seat belts (mandatory for the last 28 years) and the lack of child restraints. The study rated India’s enforcements in these critical areas as 4/10. “Even those who strap themselves in, when seated in front often are not concerned when seat belts are not used by passengers at the back,” said Tiwari. “They overlook the fact that in case of an accident, people in the back seat are often deadly projectiles, hitting the windshield and harming those strapped in front too.”

Children suffer most in accidents, holding baby in arms is unsafe

A year-old baby was cradled in its mother’s arms, as most babies travelling in Indian cars are. When the driver slammed on the brakes, the child flew out of the window and died instantly. Mohammed Imran narrated the death of a

or 13 per 1,000 people, according to 2014 report from The Energy and Resource Institute. Overall, that is not a lot - Brazil had 249 cars per 1,000 people, Thailand 206, China 83 and the US 797, according to the data. However, the density of cars is higher in burgeoning metropolitan cities: Delhi had 157 cars per 1,000 people, Mumbai 35, Bangalore 85 and Chennai 127.

The rise of distracted driving makes things worse

relative’s child to illustrate the widespread ignorance across India about using a car seat for children. “While it’s true that a car seat is expensive, (a basic model can cost Rs 4000, most are imported), I always feel that money is not the issue here,” said Imran, founder of the Safe Road Foundation, an advocacy. “When you can afford a car, why not a car seat?” Car seats, he said, are

not enough. You must know how to use one. For instance, infants should use rear-facing infant seats, toddlers front-facing seats and older children booster seats. “One must first challenge the attitude that a child is safer in his mother’s arms and make car seats readily available across the country instead of selling these only in select stores,” Imran said. Two-wheeler riders

most accident-prone, as the tide of vehicles grows Two-wheeler riders are clearly most vulnerable, according to 2013 WHO data. As many as 34 percent of two-wheeler users who died in accidents - nearly three times the number who died in car accidents did not wear a helmet. India’s rising, chaotic traffic makes them even more vulnerable. India had 15 million cars in 2014,

Apart from traffic density, distracted driving is becoming commonplace, despite the four-fold increase in crash risk when you drive while speaking on a mobile phone, Tiwari said. Distractions and overspeeding without police checks explains why India is rated 3/10 on enforcement, according to the 2015 WHO report. Controlling and setting speed limits requires a nationwide upgrade, now that roads are better and vehicles faster. “Many of the current speed limits are based on road parameters that existed in the 1960s and 1970s,” said Tiwari. “So, even if you do stick to the speed limits, often, these are impractical

and unviable.”

Battling addiction, a new challenge on highways

Harman Singh Sidhu has been battling the state governments of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan and liquor vendors in these states - for three years in courts to prevent liquor sales on India’s national highways. “There is no specific law that prevents liquor vendors from selling along India’s highways,” said Sidhu, president, ArriveSAFE, an NGO based in Chandigarh. “And this is despite evidence that 40 percent of India’s accidents occur from drunk driving.” There were as many as 185 unauthorised liquor shops along a 291-km stretch of the Panipat-Jalandhar National Highway linking Haryana and Punjab, according to an RTI response filed by ArriveSAFE in 2012. Drivers along these highways battle other addictions too. In an effort to stay awake, many consume a stimulant called poppy husk, an issue that requires greater awareness and advocacy and which ArriveSAFE is engaged in addressing.

Rain & landslide in NE claim lives; disrupt road, rail traffic CBSE Class XII results, girls outshine boys

AGARTALA/SILCHAR, MAY 21 (IANS): Road and rail traffic was disrupted in southern Assam, Tripura, Mizoram and western Manipur by incessant rain and landslides, officials said here on Saturday. At least two children were killed and as many injured as an incessant downpour unleashed by cyclone ‘Roanu’ derailed normal life in the four North Eastern states. “A nine-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy were killed and two children injured when their homes collapsed in Amarpur and Rajnagar in Tripura,” state disaster management division coordinator Sarat Das

told IANS. The injured were shifted to the district hospital in Udaipur, he said. According to Das, over 200 families were shifted to safer places in Dharmanagar in northern Tripura as floodwater entered houses in Tripura. “The cyclonic effect and rains will continue till Sunday before ‘Roanu’ hits Bangladesh,” Tripura Metrological Department director Dilip Saha told IANS. Tripura has been cut off from the rest of the country since Friday as its lifeline National Highway-8 (NH8) - was badly damaged in adjoining southern Assam. A Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) official said

in Silchar: “Due to torrential rain during the past several days, coupled with heavy landslides, rail services have been disrupted in southern Assam, Tripura, Mizoram and western Manipur.” He said that railway workers were working round-the-clock to clear the rubble in many places in Assam’s Dima Hasao district. The official however could not give the time by when the rail tracks will be cleared as the rain continued on Saturday as well. NFR chief public relations officer Pranav Jyoti Sharma said four major trains running between

Guwahati and Silchar, including Silchar-Sealdah Kanchanjunga Express and the Silchar-New Delhi via Guwahati- the Poorvottar Sampark Kranti Express, were cancelled till the tracks were cleared. The railway lines and the national highways, considered the lifelines for the region, from Guwahati pass through southern Assam to connect landlocked Tripura’s capital Agartala, Mizoram and western Manipur with the rest of India. These states are heavily dependent on the railways for the supply of food grain, fertilisers, petroleum products, construction material and other commodities.

NeW DeLHI, MAY 21 (IANS): Girls outclassed boys as Sukriti Gupta of Delhi and Palak Goyal of Haryana bagged the first and second positions in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) class 12 results declared on Saturday. With an overall pass percentage of 88.58, girls performed better compared to the boys’ 78.85. The pass percentage for boys in 2015 was 81.59 percent, while it was 90.87 percent for girls. According to a CBSE press release, 83.05 percent students cleared the examination this year against 82 percent last year. Thiruvananthapuram

recorded the highest pass percentage of 97.61, followed by Chennai at 92.63 percent. Over 10 lakh students had appeared in the examinations that began on March 1 and concluded on April 22. Sukriti Gupta of Montfort School in west Delhi secured 99.4 percent marks to top the exams. Gupta, a science stream student, scored full marks in Physics and Chemistry and got 99 out of 100 in English, Mathematics and Computer Science each. She aggregated 497 out of 500.

She scored 99.2 percent. The third place was secured by Somya Uppal of St. Theresa’s Convent School, Karnal, and Ajish Sekar of P.S.B.B Senior Secondary, Chennai - both scoring 99 percent marks. In the differently-abled category, Mudita Jagota of DAV Public School, Faridabad, stood first with 97 percent marks, Siddhartha Biswas of Kendriya Vidyalaya School, R.K. Puram, Delhi, came second and Rakshit Malik of Amity International School, Noida, stood third. About 2.38 percent more candidates had registered for the examinations this year compared with the last year.

Kiran More impressed with SCS infrastructure Manipur nPf leaders in Delhi over three controversial bills Morung Express News Dimapur | May 21

Former India wicket keeper, Kiran More feels that Nagaland has the basic set-up for promotion and nurturing of cricketing talents. More, who donned the gloves for team India for nearly a decade before retiring from international cricket in 1993, is here in Dimapur on a 4-day visit to attend the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) supported coaching camp underway at the Sovima Cricket Stadium (SCS) with faculty from the National Cricket Academy, Bangalore. The controversy surrounding the Justice Lodha Committee’s report notwithstanding, More is the second international cricketer to visit the ongoing camp after Chetesewar Pujara. While wishing not to comment on any policy matters of the BCCI, More termed the month long coaching camp as “a fantastic initiative of the BCCI” for promoting the sport. “It’s a (good) initiative. It’s a start…this start is going to go a long way,” he said while speaking to The Morung Express today at the SCS. More said that he was surprised and “equally impressed to witness the level of cricket infrastructure” when he landed Dimapur on May 20. “You have super facilities here. You have a stadium here, you have a ground, and you have wickets (pitch). This is what you’d want for

cricket actually,” he said. Terming SCS as an ideal place for holding coaching camps, he added that it is conducive to even host camps for the entire East Zone. He however stopped short of stating it could house a North East zonal academy for cricket. A native of Baroda, Gujarat, More claimed SCS fares better in terms of logistics than that in his hometown. Still, More said that Baroda has consistently produced great cricketers, who has gone on to play for India. The SCS with its amenities like a pavilion, floodlights, conference and dining halls can have more pitches, he added. At present, the stadium has eight functional pitches. Asked to comment on the allegation that there is no presence of cricket in the North East, More

maintained he has no idea what it was about or who made the allegation. Commenting on the players attending the camp, More said it is a great platform for fine tuning raw talent. The camp has 25 players in total with 20 from Arunachal Pradesh, Meghlaya, Manipur, Sikkim and 5 from Nagaland. Head coach of the camp, Rajib Dutta felt that the visitation by More and Pujara has had a great motivational impact on the young players. According to him, infrastructure alone will not serve the purpose. “You need to have the attitude, you need to have the will and we need good wickets.” “(As coach) we feel the 22 yards is the most important. We may have ground which is not very good but we need the strips to be good.

NeW DeLHI, MAY 21 (AGeNCIeS): With the Manipur government forming an all-party committee to ensure central clearance of three contentious bills passed by the state assembly in August last year, four MLAs, who had given their resignation in protest against the bills, are in Delhi to voice out their grievances. “We met Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju on May 19 and Home Minister Rajnath Singh on May 21 and expressed our concerns over the three bills,” said Awangbou Newmai, President of the Manipur unit of the Naga People’s Front (NPF) who is accompanying the four MLAs. St. Victor Nunglung, L. Dikho, Samuel Risom and V. Alexander Pao - all from the NPF - had given their resignation from the state assembly on September 4 last year after it hurriedly passed the three bills on August 31 in a specially convened session. Their resignations were not accepted by the Manipur Legislative Assembly Speaker. Ostensibly to safeguard the rights of the ‘indigenous people,’ the Manipur government, bowing to pressure from agitators in Imphal valley, passed three controversial bills -- the

Protection of Manipur People Bill, the Manipur Land Revenue and Land Reforms Bill (Seventh Amendment) and the Manipur Shops and Establishments (Second Amendment) Bill. The very day, protestors, mainly comprising indigenous people of the hills, torched five houses of their Assembly representatives. The resultant police action left at least nine people dead. The nine bodies are still lying in a Churachandpur hospital mortuary with the families refusing to bury them till the hill peoples’ objections are registered and changes made. The state government had passed the bills following a three-month-long agitation spearheaded by the Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System (JCILPS) demanding the enforcement of an inner line permit system to check the influx of migrants. The JCILPS says that according to the 2011 census, Manipur’s population is 2.7 million. Of this, only 1.7 million are indigenous people while the rest are people who have their roots outside the state. However, according to the indigenous peoples inhabiting

the hills of Manipur, the three bills would directly undermine their rights. The main objections pertain to the 1951 cut off for citizenry, matters related to land alienation and passing the bills as Money Bills. Manipur NPF president Newmai also said that the passing of the bills was against the constitutional provisions of Article 371-C. According to a Hills Areas Committee (HAC) order of 1972 and its General Statutory Rules (GSR), any bill pertaining to people of the hills of Manipur should be passed through the HAC in the state assembly. Newmai said that the four MLAs have come to Delhi after Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh convened a meeting and formed a multiparty committee to ensure that the three bills were cleared by the Centre. NPF is not part of the committee. He said that last year, under pressure from the JCILPS, the government formed a committee to frame the bills. “From the very beginning we said that the committee was one-sided and it would accommodate the interests of only one community,” Newmai said.

and parents in Nagaland.” On the other hand, while the state sends people outside after basic training for work, most of them do not cope with the strict work routine and competition and usually end up entering the call centre, he further informed. From a comfortable ‘work culture,’ they are thrown to 12 hour routines under harsh conditions and often treated as ‘bonded laborers,’ most cannot survive this transition, he added. “Even in five star hotels, they survive only for 2-5 months after moving out from their present engagement and they usually join a call centre.” “While we talk about scarcity of jobs or about sending out Nagas to work, everyday migrants are coming in hordes to Nagaland and they are finding works,” Rev. Achu noted

Experts propagate 138 years old Litchi Tree in Molungyimsen

MolungyiMsen, May 21 (Mexn): The magnificent 138 years old Litchi Tree, planted during the 1st week of June, 1878, four Jackfruit trees and one Mango tree, still standing against all weather conditions at 764 m (2506 ft) above sea level at Molungyimsen were planted by Rev. Dr. and Mrs. EW Clark. “The trees are still bearing fruits; however, the Litchi tree is not healthy,” Dr. Moa Walling, Deputy Director Horticulture informed in a press release. A team of expert plant propagators from the State Horticulture Nursery, Dimapur was assigned by the Director of Horticulture to do propagation work on this litchi tree so that

the true-to type planting materials can be obtained and later use for planting. The 138 years old tree has many holes and crevices in the main trunk, secondary trunk and branches accompanied with lichen, moss and orchids infestation. Some of the bigger branches are wilting which can be attributed to old age and general health of the tree. The team conducted hands-on-demo to the villagers for cleaning, preparation of Bordeaux paste and painting. Bordeaux paste was prepared along with the villagers and painted the trunk after cleaning the moss, lichens and the dead wood. The team made more than

50 layering on May 18 which on successful rooting will be collected during last week July – 1st week August than this layering will be raised in secondary nurseries for planting next year. The main tree trunk measures 405 cm and the 4 secondary branches as 183 cm, 213 cm, 230 cm and 175 cm. The spread of the canopy (branches) is East direction: 858 cm, Westward: 702 cm, North direction: 827 cm and South direction: 581 cm with a height of 1279 cm. This Magnificent Lithci tree at Molungyimsen which is planted by Rev. Dr. EW Clark in June 1878 will probably be the oldest litchi tree still bearing fruit in our country.

The “Molungyimsen Ebenezer Mission” board, the Molungyimsen church pastor and authorities and many elders had helped and provided support to the team while conducting physical treatment to the tree, Air layering and during documentation about the Magnificent Litchi Tree. Many Christians today believe that, miraculous healing and spiritual inspiration is achieved while praying at the tree and by use of the miracle Litchi Leaf and Fruit.

maintaining that there is no shortage of work at home. However, while no job is beyond dignity, he noted with concern that Nagas look upon many jobs as menial and consequently shuns them. For example, for simple wiring in a building, an electrician earns around Rs. 4000 (3hrs work) in Kohima and Rs 1000-1200 in Dimapur, he cited from his own personal survey. “Even those working in Saloons are earning comfortably in cities, but our people do not bother for such jobs.” The Motive Recognising and often experiencing such ironical circumstances, the enterprises was started to create job opportunities for the youth in Nagaland and create businesses for missions, he further said. According to Rev. An-

chu, the main motive is to identify individual and institutes and train them in various skilled based occupations. Initially, around 10 people will train and intern at Pune and later impart the same knowledge at various locations in the state. The training fee as well as necessary arrangement will be borne by the Ministry. For those with genuine needs, it will also arrange even food and lodging. It will not stop with training, but Ministry will also help them set-up the unit for them once they finish their training and mentor it for five years. The only condition is that, they don’t sell it once they set-up the unit, which is often the case, Rev. Anchu stated. Different institutes as well as people from various fields, including Nagas, are

WED activities to raise awareness on wildlife crime

kohiMa, May 21 (Mexn): WED is the United Nations’ campaign for encouraging global awareness and action for the environment. It was established by the United nations General Assembly to mark the opening of the 1972 Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment. Over the years it has grown into a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries. It serves as the people’s day for doing something positive for the environment, inspiring individual actions that collectively can generate a hugely positive impaction of the planet. WED is celebrated

around the world in many ways, including street rallies, bicycle parades, concerts, essay and poster competitions in schools, tree planting, recycling efforts, cleanup campaigns and much more. “When we see or experience the negative effects of climate change, environment degradation or resource depletion it is easy to blame others – governments for nor prioritising environmental policy; industry for raising greenhouse gas emissions; NGOs for not lobbying strongly enough; and individuals for not taking action,” stated a DIPR report. WED however is a day we

Oral evidence meeting re-scheduled

put aside our differences and instead celebrated the achievements we’ve made towards protecting the environment. “By celebrating WED, we remind ourselves and others of the importance of caring for our environment. Remember that every action counts, so join us: every year, everywhere, everyone,” the report added. Various events and practical activities can be taken to celebrate WED. If each of us contributes a little to this celebration, it will be a far greater success. The most important goal of the day is to raise awareness on wildlife crime.

Some suggested WED activities are: • Arts and Crafts exhibition/Film Festival • Ceremonies and celebrities • Competitions • Concerts • Demonstration activities • Drama and poetry • Information kits • Flash mobs • Environmental Education and awareness-raising • Online and social media activities • Publicity and media coverage • Sport activities The above list are not exhaustive and many activities may spring to mind that will be better suited to your local needs and conditions.

ready to offer their services, he added. Apart from training, the ministry also aims to impart basic public relation techniques and social etiquette to deal with various situations. Often, we lack business skills to deal with customer and as a result of which, people usually prefer to buy or take services from others even though we offer same or better options, the Pastor said adding that social etiquette such as decency, respect, politeness is vital for any enterprise to succeed. It is also exploring avenues with the deaf ministry to differently-abled people to help train and set-up units for them.

Choosing hotel management as a career Jenny kashuila Midland | Dimapur

The present scenario of getting a job which would provide basic amenities for one self has become a big nightmare for all us in our society. And too often we are left with big confusion and with too many options about choosing our profession after higher secondary and we tend to end up pursuing regular bachelor degrees mostly from humanities background. But why do we study? Why do we spend money so much on education? Most of us will say ‘in order to get a job’, to get a job means to earn a living right! In northeast alone we can see there are lots of highly educated unemployed youths hunting and waiting for white-collar government jobs. Instead of that why don’t we try something different like pursuing a professional degree may be a bachelor degree in fine arts, carpentry, photography, shoe making, floriculture, fashion designing, architecture, journalism, hotel management etc which can enhance our skills. As a matter of fact the reasons being highly educated without getting jobs are mainly due to lack of skills and motivation. Everyone is blessed with different talents but it all matters on how we utilized our talents in a proper way. Choosing hotel management as a career could be one of the most exciting professions and a career of exploration as in the sense, hotel management graduates are able to travel around the world and see different places while working at a very young age of just 20 or 21 years. HM being a career oriented subject has a vast scope which gives wings to people to dream and explore. In fact, with the change of time, the tourism industry in India has encouraged the growth of hotel industry as well. And this dynamic industry is growing by leaps and bounds and thus increasing the demand for well trained candidates.

department practical lab.

Moreover the advantages of having a degree in HM is that one can go further studies like MBA/ MA/M.Sc. in hotel management or travel and tourism and can even appear any other competitive examinations. Another lucrative feature about this profession is that, with the rapid emergence of hotel chains around the world, candidates from north-eastern state are highly favourable from within the country and abroad as the people are more hospitable, hard working and because of the distinct unique features. To those who wishes to be become an airhostess an interesting fact about HM is that most airlines preferred flight steward and flight attendant from HM background. Again I would say pursuing one year diploma or six months courses from airhostess training institute is not encouraging. I happen to meet many students from this kind of institutes who wasn’t got placement in airlines. The promise of providing 100% job placement in airlines made during the time of admission was nothing but an empty vessel which gives heartbreak to the aspirant. The overwhelming sadness about these training institutes is that they produce a large number of aspirants every year where

LPU sets highest placement record

JalaNDhar, May 21 (ageNcies): Setting highest placement record in 2015-16 as well, Lovely Professional University is making new strides in placements of its students in top brands every year. International placements by Qatar Airways at highest salary package of Rs 20 Lakh and Hyatt Hotel USA at Rs 15 Lakh are highlights of the session up to now. Other top salary offering companies remained Air India (Rs 8.5 Lakh), Practo Technologies (Rs 7.08 Lakh), Josh Technology Rs 6.5 Lakh, LG Soft (Rs 5.5 Lakh) and many more. 200+ placement drives were made by top brands including 100+ drives for technology & sciences’ students and 60 for business administration students. Under these drives, LPU students have got placements in different sectors including Management, IT, Engineering, Banking, Agriculture, Consultancy, Architecture, Pharmaceuticals and other. By recruiting 550 students in a single drive, IT giant Cognizant once again remained top recruiter across all the sectors and clusters. Cognizant has set new record of consecutive selection in large number in North India, after selecting 610 students previously. It is followed by Tech Mahindra’s selection of 249 students, I Gate Global Solutions’ 73, and in similar number by many other companies. Though companies from multiple sectors have recruited LPU students but the top sector to recruit largest number of LPU students again remained engineering. LPU School of Hotel Management led the race illustratively by witnessing 100% placements of its students. Management students are selected by globally giant companies including XL Dynamics (75), Think & Learn (33), Practo Technologies (32), MRF Tyres (13); engineering students by CSS Corporation (30), and so on. Pharmacy students are preferred in large number by prestigious companies including Torrent Pharmaceuticals, Abbot India, Jubilant Chemsys, Life-Cell International, Omics Group; Hotel Management students by ITC Hotels, Bercos, The Grand, Zuri Whitefields; Fashion Technology students by Tommy Hilfiger, Biba Apparels, Madura Fashions, Vardhman Polytex; and agriculture students by Zenesis Agro-science and more. Education and physical education students also got coveted placements by Leap Start, Akal Academies, Focus Academy, and Imperial Sports Academy, Kooh Sports, Decathalon and more.

most of them are working in other sector. You can become an airhostess with or without taking any training from airhostess training or any other institutes. The information about the cabin crew recruitments are always updated in the newspapers or in the airlines website. The basic requirements for airlines is that one need to have an outgoing pleasing personality, clear skin and good communication skills with a minimum qualification of higher secondary. Anyhow if you love meeting different people, travelling, cooking and foodies and have a pleasing personality and good communication skills, then in our very own state, there is hotel management course offered by the Global Open University, Nagaland, Dimapur. This ‘small yet big enough to provide the wings to explore’, is the department of Hotel Management, Dimapur under the umbrella of the Global Open University, Nagaland. The department was started in 2008 with the main objective to give career oriented course which would provide employment opportunities to the youths. As of now it is the only institute in Nagaland which is providing three years full-fledged courses in hotel management. Far away from the busy hustle

and bustle lifestyle of the cities, the environment at the campus is totally different as it is so quiet and calm which is perfect for learning. Apart from that, the department has a well furnished visual aids classroom, practical kitchen and restaurant, mock guest room, computer lab with Wi-Fi connection and a well equipped library to further enable the students to enhance their creativity. One will feel like home here. The teaching fraternity and staff are friendly and have good industry experience from India and abroad. Besides the regular subjects, the student also gets to learn foreign language like German, Chinese, French and Korean, event management, retail management and so on. As part of the learning experiences the department provides personality development classes, industrial exposure training and educational exposure tour to metro cities. In terms of job placement 100% placement are being provided to all the students in reputed organization in India as well as abroad. Most of the alumni of HM department are spread all over the world in reputed firms like Taj Hotel Mumbai, Fortes Hospital New Delhi, Hyatt Chennai, Oberoi Grand Kolkata, JW

NAGALAND

NPcc remembers Rajiv Gandhi th on 25 death anniversary Kohima, may 21 (mExN): Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) observed the 25th death anniversary of Bharat Ratna Rajiv Gandhi at Congress Bhavan, Kohima today. NPCC President, K. Therie recalled his meeting with Rajiv Gandhi as a member of the NPCC delegate when he and Sonia Gandhi came to Dimapur on May 18, 1991. He said Rajiv Gandhi listened intently to a detailed account of the Naga political problem and responded saying there is no difficulty to offer talks without preconditions, a press release from Media Cell, NPCC informed. The following day on May 19, 1991, he offered talks without preconditions if voted to power, Therie added. However, two days later his life was cut short when he was assassinated at Sriperambudur near Chennai. “Perhaps, the biggest loss was for the Nagas,” Therie said, continuing, “I trusted that he would have solved the Naga political prob-

IMLF seized; one arrested Dimapur, may 21 (mExN): The staff of West Police Station recovered 349 cases of IMFL from a car and arrested one person in this connection, a Dimapur Police official informed. The Addl. Dy. Commissioner of Police/PRO in a press note said that the police team and personnel of New Field check-gate recovered the same while conducting routine frisking at New Field area. The driver, identified as one Pradip Sinha (26) was arrested and the IMFL was seized along with the vehicle, the police said.

NSCN (R) expels one Dimapur, may 21 (mExN): The NSCN (Reformation) has expelled one cadre identified as Vihoto, Raja Peyu of Sumi Region V.K. area from the national service with immediate effect for “misuse of power”. The Chairman of NSCN (R) Sumi Region, LG Sumi stated that a complaint against Vihoto was lodged by the V.K. Peoples Organization for his misuse of government’s power which is against the national Yehzabo, according to a press release from Secretary, MIP, NSCN (R). The Sumi Region NSCN (R) has requested all the Nagas to cooperate with the government, the release said. The government of the NSCN (R) further reiterated that its government is “neither against anyone nor at the behest of anyone, but firmly working and stands for the welfare of the Naga people.”

NNC advises NPGs not to use ‘His Excellency’ Dimapur, may 21 (mExN): The Naga National Council (NNC) has advised all the Naga Political Groups that address their groups' President "His Excellency" not to address like that again because “this is something shameful and not fit to use such a high or highest political title at this stage of transition of Naga struggle for freedom of recognition.” A press release from Information & Publicity Wing, NNC pointed out that even the largest democracy in the world, India, does not use the highest political title for its President. “Therefore, those leaders in the homeland must learn this fact and stop using this title in future,” it added.

by its President, Goneiu Sirie and Press Secretary, Alo Yakhro, NPF Kohima division recounted that after his exit from the Congress party, Rio had no option but to join the regional party, the Nagaland People’s Council (NPC), in October 2002. Fully utilising the platform of the regional party and with the help from the party rank and files, Rio assumed power as Chief Minister, it said. “But everything did not go as planned after introduction of mandatory Downsizing of the Ministry and party legislators rebelled against Rio’s leadership. It was only through the unstinted support of the party President Dr Shurhozelie that his first tenure was salvaged after he was reduced to minor-

ity within the NPF legislature party,” the release stated. The division further asserted that the supreme sacrifice made by the party President enabled the regional party to retain its symbol. The same regional political party catapulted Rio to political heights he never dreamt of, it said. “Unfortunately, it is that very same regional political party which Rio tried his best to dismantle in the last two years or so.” Meanwhile, the release expressed dismay that few individuals have been writing in the local media against the suspension of Rio, and that it was Rio himself who was solely responsible for the achievements that the party could bring about in the last one decade or so.

Lotha Baptist theologians hold conference Dimapur, may 21 (mExN): Lotha Baptist Theological Association held its 34th conference from May 13-15 at Vankhosüng LBCA Mission Centre, with the theme "The King's Cupbearer" (Nehemiah 1:11).

nce when I was feeling less than pretty, it occurred to me, “Who told you that you aren’t beautiful?” I began to wonder, what if our differences actually are a gift? What if what’s unique about us is what makes us beautiful? When we let go of our preconceived notions, we’re free to enjoy our individuality. I am thrilled with the trend of using children with disabilities in ads. I love that the world is waking up to the truth that beauty comes in all

shapes, sizes and colors. The illustration above is based on a photo I snapped of a friend’s daughter, Clare. Her mother needed her photographed for a calendar featuring children with Down Syndrome. After adjusting the layers of netting on Clare’s party dress, I saw a longing in her mother’s eyes. Maura had the same yearning every mother has for their child. She wanted her little girl’s beauty to be appreciated. I, in turn, was smitten with Clare. Looking at the photographs from the session, compelled me to design an illustration around her. Yes, being beautiful is no longer for the chosen few.

But he would sometimes miss having company. `I will go and look for some friends,’ the Bear thought. After a while, the Bear saw, from afar, an old Gardener who also lived alone. He would spend time with his flowers whenever he got lonely. The Bear was excited to find a friend. However, he was afraid that the Gardener would get scared of

him. So, he put on a mask. The Gardener mistook him for another man. “Welcome to my home. I am a lonely man. It would be nice if you could stay with me,” the Gardener said. The Bear and the Gardener were happy to live with each other. However, one day, the Bear saw a beehive on a tree in the garden. He climbed up the tree and broke the hive. The angry bees attacked him and the Gardener. The Bear ran away to the forest but the poor Gardener was badly hurt! It is better to be alone than to have foolish friends.

What's happening? Your ping pong ball floats gently above the hair dryer without shifting sideways or flying across the other side of the room. The airflow from the hair dryer pushes the ping pong ball upwards until its upward force equals the force of gravity pushing down on it. When it reaches this point it gently bounces around, floating where the upward and downward forces are equal. The reason the ping pong ball stays nicely inside the column of air produced by the hair dryer without shifting sideways is due to air pressure. The fast moving air from the hair dryer creates a column of lower air pressure, the surrounding higher air pressure forces the ping pong ball to stay inside this column, making it easy to move the hair dryer around without losing control of the ping pong ball. See if you can float 2 or even 3 ping pong balls as an extra challenge.

"T

HIS is holy ground," said Billy Graham. We were standing in the little bedroom in Lincoln College where John Wesley and his fellow-students had begun the Holy Club, and on the wall was a picture showing the Wesleys, Whitefield, and others in session. That day was spent in visiting Oxford University's halls of learning, but the North Carolinian evangelist did not only want to see the sights, but to talk about the hope and prospect of another great evangelical awakening such as Wesley experienced. A couple of years later in his office in the Northwestern Schools in Minneapolis, we were together with two young Californians, Dunlap and Franck. It was close to one in the morning, but we knelt and prayed. The previous October, 1948, Armin Gesswein and I had shared a prayer conference with sixty Minneapolis ministers, and there was outpoured a spirit of confession and consecration which transformed many a life. Three months later, the same group of ministers experienced another stirring of the Spirit at Camp Iduhapi, where we shared with them a vision of revival in the Christian colleges of the Twin Cities. "God grant it," said Billy Graham in that prayer meeting in April. Within a week, a student revival described by President Wingblade as "unprecedented" had broken forth at Bethel College across Mississippi in St. Paul, all science, arts and theology classes being abandoned in favor of prayer, confession, restitution and decision. Reviving in varied degree was felt in half dozen other colleges, and more than two thousand students testified of personal reviving, restoration or regeneration through the Spirit's impact. The United Spiritual Advance movement —in a report by Paul Rees, Victor Nelson, and Wallace Mikkelson, co-chairman of the ministerial fellowship — pointed out that "equally amazing is the fact that Christians . . . have agreed unanimously that the student campaign has been an outpouring of the Spirit from start to finish. The Lord alone knows what will follow this work of preparation." Billy Graham was in Los Angeles preparing for his fall campaign when Dr. Wingblade telephoned him to announce the outpouring of the Spirit at Bethel. Seven weeks earlier, we had flown from Montreal to Los Angeles to engage in a month of meetings calculated to deepen the spiritual life of Christians in Los Angeles in preparation for the Billy Graham campaign. The series was under the auspices of the same Christ for Greater Los Angeles committee planning the Graham effort, and they kept us busy in sixty or more meetings in

churches and other groups. By far the most outstanding gathering was the Ministers' conference for prayer for revival organized by Armin Gesswein at Pacific Palisades Conference Grounds. Several hundred ministers, evangelists, missionaries, and their wives, shared in another extraordinary outpouring of the Spirit, and the evening sessions continued until long after midnight. Pastors from historic and traditional Protestant denominations participated freely with pastors from the younger denominations and independent groups. There was a confession and restitution of a striking nature, but the details were forgotten as the Heavenly Father pulled the curtain of forgiveness across the place. There was blessing also in ministerial, congregational, and organizational meetings throughout greater Los Angeles. The Lord blessed the Word, and many were convinced that, as was said by Matthew Henry, "when God intends great mercy for His people, He first of all sets them a-praying." Just as Armin Gesswein's work among ministers culminated in an outpouring of the Spirit in 1949, so Henrietta Mears' work among students had the same effect. Two years previously, there had been a flash flood of unusual blessings at a student conference at the beautiful Forest Home Conference Grounds a mile high in the San Bernardino Mountains. The 1947 movement was so sudden and unexpected that not all its results were conserved, but it made all participants thirsty for another revival. So, in 1949, the Young Adult Conference in July was greatly owned of God, not the least of the fruitage being the surrender of a young radio star who immediately became burdened for the spiritually needy stars in the world of radio, television, stage, and screen. A direct outcome was a weekly gathering of a group of famous people in Beverly Hills. This group soon became self-governing, the direction gladly being turned over to the stars themselves. Blessed as was the July Conference, it was nothing compared to the September Student Briefing Conference at Forest Home. No less than 500 students from a dozen universities and many colleges attended. The ministry was shared by a team of leaders, David

Cowie, "Dad" Elliot, Louis Evans, Bob Ferguson, Dick Halverson, Bob Munger, Miss Mears, Billy Graham and myself. Billy Graham brought inspirational messages in the morning meetings at 11; in the evening meetings we had the privilege of giving doctrinal and challenging messages. The topics were, in sequence: God and Students; Revival, the Work of God; How God Forgives Sins; the Searchlight of God; Sanctification, Imputed, Critical and Progressive; the Filling of the Spirit; the Impact of Revival. There was blessing in all the meetings, but the climax was reached on the Wednesday evening when the meeting continued in power until midnight. Much confession was made, but all of it under the restraint of the Spirit, with not a regrettable utterance. Reviving of believers, restoration of backsliders, regeneration of sinners proceeded in such a remarkable way that the veteran student evangelist, "Dad" Elliot, declared that it was the most unusual meeting of his experience since the glorious days of the Student Volunteers last century. The overflow from this conference had its effect on many a campus on the Pacific Coast, and even provoked a revival in a church in far-away Colorado. Enthusiasm was boundless, and yet there was no emotionalism, the order of the Spirit's impact seeming to be first intellectual, then volitional, then emotional; tears sometimes following conviction, and joy following the cleansing of sin. Perhaps the most significant thing was the emphasis that the confession of sin and consequent cleansing were only preparatory to appropriating by faith a sanctified and Spirit-filled life. For many it meant abandoning a life on a lower plane, with occasional excursions to higher levels by balloon, for living on a plateau of higher Christian life, feet planted on the solid ground of the promises of God. Undoubtedly the direct instrument under God in the bringing of Billy Graham to Los Angeles and the sustaining organization in the success of the meeting was the Christ for Greater Los Angeles committee. Cliff Smith and Claude Jenkins and many another leader in the committee had been stirred by the Pacific Palisades Conference in March, and were tiptoe in expectancy of real revival. The committee worked together in the

Angels can appear as ordinary humans Kevin Porter vangelist Billy Graham, 86, has preached the Gospel to more people in a live audience format than anyone in history - over 210 million people in more than 185 countries. His followers believe that the New York Crusade which runs from June 24 to 26 will be his last live appearance. Angels have been the object of man's fascination since the beginning of time. In an effort to shed some light on these celestial entities, the Rev. Billy Graham offers his thoughts on the supernatural beings that never fail to captivate. In a Q&A series published in The Kansas City Star last week, Graham

E

expounds upon the mystique, power and purpose of angels. "Angels are real. Just as real as you and I, " said Graham, explaining that the invisible beings exist in large numbers, as evidenced by Hebrews 12: 22 (KJV): "But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels." The 97-year-old world-renowned evangelist says that, although angels are spiritual beings without physical bodies, they can take on human form. "On occasion they can appear as ordinary humans, or even as glorious celestial beings that reflect the majesty of God." As an illustration of that glory,

Graham used the example of Isaiah 6:4 where Christ's throne was surrounded by angels whose voices shook the doorposts and thresholds. Created to serve God, angels work to do His will and to protect His people — efforts that are largely hidden from man. "They also are part of a great unseen army that constantly fights against Satan and his servants of evil," Graham added. "God's promise should bring comfort to every believer: 'He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways,'" (Psalm 91:11). Although humans may be totally unaware of their presence, angels are still very much a part of their lives, explained the famed evangelical.

While man can appreciate angels despite his limited comprehension of them, one day humans will understand the totality of how the supernatural beings have positively influenced their lives. "We can thank God for them, and some day in Heaven we'll realize just how much they've done for us, at God's command. 'Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?'" (Hebrews 1:14). Graham is one of America's most admired and respected evangelists. According to a previous report from The Christian Post, a 2015 Gallup poll listed the Southern Baptist preacher as the 10th "Most Admired Man" in the U.S. — a list that he has made a record 59 times.

f you were to draw up a blueprint for a successful music career, the final plans couldn't help but resemble Newsboys' trajectory. They've defined Christian music for more than two decades, only to blow up expectations as they've recreated themselves again and again. Impossible to pin down, these musical shapeshifters move fluidly between rock and pop, worship and dance, to the delight of their legion of fans. Their live shows exhibit a kind of energy that, if it could be bottled, would power entire cities. While the recognition for all their hard work is nice, the band isn't in it for the accolades. Instead, lead vocalist Michael Tait, guitarist Jody Davis, keyboardist Jeff Frankenstein and drummer Duncan Phillips do what they do out of love: love for God, love for their fans and love for the simple act of making music. Love is an emotion they believe we need more of in this increasingly dark world. They're so passionate about the idea that they titled their new album Love Riot. "When I speak from stage, I often talk about love," says Tait of the album's inspiration. "Darkness has been so prevalent in our culture. Let's have a love riot—it's time." For inspiration for their latest musical endeavor, they looked around at the good that's already being done, people who are shining examples of love both in their own backyard and around the world. The album celebrates those selfless acts, while also aiming to inspire the Church to refocus

"What makes Christianity different than every other faith is that it's built on love," Phillips reminds. "We were shown the greatest love from our Savior, but the Church hasn't always done a great job of loving people." Love Riot hopes to change that. The album is highlighted by the first single, "Guilty," the theme song of Pure Flix's upcoming motion picture "God's Not Dead 2." "As a band, our primary goal is to communicate a powerful message through music," says Newsboys' Michael Tait. "With 'Guilty,' we wanted to deliver an anthem that carries an important message for today. 'Guilty' is a song for all Christians, as we seek to honor God each day in every way, no matter the cost. We pray it will help encourage and empower Believers— in our country and around the world—to live boldly for Him." In addition to the song, Newsboys are set to return to the big screen with a special appearance in "God's Not Dead 2," the sequel to the 2014 hit Pure Flix film in which the band made their onscreen debut. "God's Not Dead 2" hits theatres around the country beginning April 1, 2016, and stars Melissa Joan Hart, Jesse Metcalfe, David A.R. White, Sadie Robertson, Robin Givens and Fred Thompson, among others. The music video featured here includes a first look at footage from the film where key characters wrestle with their faith, and seek out answers to their questions about who God is.

reach the gospel at all times; if necessary, use words,” Saint Francis of Assisi is supposed to have said. The aphorism, often quoted, expresses a well-meaning viewpoint of many Christians today. They are concerned that we’ve been too loud, demanding and angry. Now, they say, we need to show the gospel by our lives. It’s a good sentiment, and I certainly agree that we need to demonstrate the gospel change in our lives by caring for others. But there are two problems with the Assisi quote. First, he never said it. Second, it’s really bad theology. You see, using that statement is a bit like saying, “Feed the hungry at all times; if necessary, use food.” For Christians, the gospel is good news — it’s what the word literally means. For evangelicals, our name speaks of the commitment to evangelism that defines us. The good news needs to be told. Yet, Christians, evangelicals included, seem to love evangelism, as long as someone else is doing it. It’s time for all of us to start preaching our good news again. Christianity is a missionary faith It’s essential to understand that, regardless of our personal comfort level, we are called to share our faith because Christianity is a missionary faith. Despite the change in our culture and the way our faith is regarded, Christians are commanded to tell people about Jesus. In Matthew 4:19, Jesus called fishermen as his first disciples and told them he would make them “fishers of men.” His disciples are still called to be fishers of men. Even in our multi-faith environment, this calling should not be offensive to those of other faiths or no faith at all. Evangelism does not mean coercion. We can and should respect each other and strive for tolerance across varying beliefs, but that does not require pretending those differences do not exist. One of the core beliefs of Christianity is that Christianity should be propagated. It isn’t necessary for every Christian to rent a stadium to proclaim the gospel to thousands. Most Christians can gain a hearing for the gospel while exchanging life stories at the coffee shop, taking a meal to a hurting family or standing for justice in an unjust world. What evangelism requires is that when we care for a friend or speak out for a cause, we tell others that our faith is the reason. We tell them the

People are more open than we think When speaking to his disciples about sharing his message, Jesus said, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few” (Matthew 9:37). The problem then and now has always been about the lack of workers, people who tell the news. It has never been about the harvest — those who do not know Christ. They are often more open to listening than we expect. Famous magician and outspoken atheist Penn Jillette once talked on his video blog about an encounter with a Christian who gave him a Bible as a gift. Rather than be offended by it, Jillette recognized the gesture for what it was — concern for him. “How much do you have to hate somebody to not proselytize?” Jillette asked. “How much do you have to hate somebody to believe that everlasting life is possible and not tell them that?” That’s a good question for many Christians to answer today. LifeWay Research, the Christian polling outlet that I lead, found that 78 percent of those who do not attend church said they, like Jillette, would be willing to listen “if someone wanted to tell me what she or he believed about Christianity.” Younger people were even more likely to say they would be willing to listen. The harvest at least seems ready to hear, while the workers don’t seem as willing to talk. That’s a missed opportunity. Christians are timid A 2012 LifeWay Research study found that 80 percent of churchgoing Protestants believe they have a responsibility to share their faith, but only 39 percent have actually shared with someone how to become a Christian in the past six months. In other words, a lot of people think they should share their faith, but they don’t often do so. As I head to Wheaton College to take a newly created endowed chair, I’m aware of the man it is named after — Billy Graham. He was known for many things that should be part of our reputation as well. He cared for the hurting, sought to bring peace to tumultuous times and partnered with others for the greater good. Ultimately, however, he was mostly known for one thing: sharing the gospel. And we should do the same today. In Jesus’ last words before he ascended, he said we are to “make disciples of all nations.” Evangelism isn’t just one part of our calling. It is central to our calling. Jesus’ last words should be our first priority. Ed Stetzer is executive director of LifeWay Research and the incoming Billy Graham distinguished chair of church, mis-

campaign most harmoniously, and once the movement was under way the committee was possessed by a holy enthusiasm. The Christ for Greater Los Angeles Committee drew its main support from the National Association of Evangelicals constituency, but there were others from affiliations to the right and left of the NAE position helping loyalty without giving up their opinions and co-operation. The officers of the Christ for Greater Los Angeles committee were deeply spiritual men, a sort of advance guard in the reviving. The story of the Los Angeles Big Tent Campaign is now well-known. For eight weeks, in the last quarter of the year, an unreasonable heat-wave persisted with the daily temperatures hovering in the eighties. November was warmer than June. At a critical point, a Pacific storm threatened to break up the fine weather spell, but following a prayer meeting, the storm moved out to sea again and missed the city. Without this extraordinary weather, the Big Tent Campaign would have been handicapped. The Graham campaign was followed by the worst fogs of Los Angeles history, dislocating traffic for weeks. The Big Tent seated six thousand, and soon began to fill up. Night after night for the first two weeks, Billy Graham preached repentance to Christians. In the third week of October, a revival of the Bethel College pattern swept Northern Baptist Seminary in Chicago, where the chapel was crowded with students until midnight. The same week the Big Tent Campaign moved into high gear. Without doubt, the 1949 Big Tent Campaign was the greatest of its kind in California history. An aggregate of 400,000 people attended the eight weeks' meetings, and 4178 decision cards were turned in by the personal workers in the inquiry room. Of these, 2703 were firsttime decisions. The Christ for Greater Los Angeles committee handled the distribution of the cards, sending cards to the pastor of any church specified, or to the nearest co-operating evangelical church if no denomination were specified. The success of the campaign quickened the hope of revival throughout America. Already, with the extraordinary revival of pastors in March, churches were reporting the doubling of prayer meetings and increased soul-winning up and down the Pacific Coast. The Graham campaign accelerated the movement, and the end is not yet. Extracts from Revival In Our Time: The Story of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Campaigns including Six of his Sermons. Revival In Our Time is presently held by 104 libraries including North Park University (Illinois) and Azusa Pacific University.

Redemption through the blood of Jesus Scripture passage: For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were re d e e m e d f ro m the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. -- 1 Peter 1:18-19 1) Power of the blood: Blood possessed power because the soul or life is in it and that blood is sacrificed to God on the altar. It has redemptive power. The life of a man is more valuable than many sheep or goats or oxen. The sacrifices and offerings of animals in the Old Testament times were only types and shadows which pointed to the blood of Jesus Christ. 2) The precious blood: Precious means of inestimable value. The Greek order is "With precious blood, as of a lamb without blemish in itself and without spot contracted by contact with others, even the blood of Christ." Though very human, he remained pure in himself ("without blemish"), and uninfected by any impression of sin from without ("without spot"), which would have deemed him unfit for being our atoning Redeemer. Consider the costly price of our redemption from sin. We are bought by the blood of Christ. Gold and silver being liable to corruption themselves, can free no one from spiritual and bodily death; they are therefore of little value. 3) Redeemed through the blood: Jesus came to bear the sins of mankind. His blood had satisfied the law and righteousness of God. By so doing, he had overcome the power of sin, death and hell. People must know that they have been redeemed not by corruptible things such as silver and gold, things which have no power of life but by the precious blood of Jesus Christ. It was by the eternal spirit in our Lord that his blood had its value and power. In 1 John 1:7 we are told, "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin." Man is sold under sin as a slave; shut up under condemnation and the curse. The ransom was, therefore, paid to the righteously incensed God the Judge. It was accepted as a vicarious satisfaction for our sin by God, inasmuch as it was his own love as well as righteousness which appointed it. We have been purified from sin because of the sanctifying power of the blood of Jesus. An Israelite sold as a bond-servant for debt might be redeemed by one of his brethren. As we could not redeem ourselves, Christ assumed our human nature in order to reach down to us and become our nearest of kin and brother. 4) Reconciled with God: The word of God says, "But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ" (Ephesians 2:13). The blood of Jesus is about breaking the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, making peace and turning enemies into friends. The close relationship Adam and Eve enjoyed with God was broken when they disobeyed him. Sin has separated us from God because he is holy and righteous. Sinners cannot come near him. We were once far off from the presence of God our Heavenly Father. But by the blood of Jesus that was shed on the cross we have been brought near to him not only for this present time but also for eternity.

No failure is permanent,stick to principles: Sonia tells party New Delhi, May 21 (PTi): Seeking to lift the party's morale after the electoral debacle, Congress President Sonia Gandhi today asserted that "no failure is permanent". "A success achieved by discarding basic principles does not stay for long. If one sticks to principles, no failure is permanent," she said addressing party workers at a programme to commemorate the 25th death anniversary of her husband and former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. Congress is reeling from defeat in the just concluded Assembly elections in Assam, Kerala, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu. Pitching for social harmony, the Congress President said, "We have to compensate for each drop of Rajiv's blood on Indian soil by promoting and strengthening social harmony". "We will have to follow his values of simplicity, modernity, harmony and sensitivity. That will be our true homage to him. Only then we will be able to say that Rajiv is in us."

Rajiv Gandhi remembered New Delhi, May 21 (iaNS): Congress President Sonia Gandhi, her son Rahul Gandhi and daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Saturday paid tributes to her husband and former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi on his 25th death anniversary. They laid flowers and wreaths at Rajiv Gandhi memorial 'Vir Bhumi' here. Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated on this day in 1991 in a suicide bomb attack by Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) during an election rally at Sriperumbudur in Tamil Nadu. He served as prime minister of India from October 31, 1984 to December 2, 1989. tions in giving the youths the right to franchise, devolution of powers to Panchayats and bringing in a revolution in telecom and communication, the Congress President said that he ensured participation of the young people and the deprived sections of society in the country's development process. "India is walking with

its head held high in the world due to the steps taken by him," she said. Gandhi said that it was Rajiv Gandhi who had started the change that led to the gains that are visible in society, economy and politics, "which we talk about loudly today". "It was he who took the revolutionary step of bringing prosperity in the life of

the poor through science and technology. It was he who took strong steps to bring peace in Assam, Mizoram and Darjeeling. Rajiv ji wanted to see India at the forefront of the world order," the Congress President said. Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, who was not keeping well for some days, and former

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh were conspicuous by their absence at the event, which was organised by the Youth Congress. Some former Ministers like P Chidambaram and A K Antony were also not present. The event was attended by senior leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad, Digvijaya Singh, Janardan Dwivedi, Ajit Jogi among others.

Severe heat wave likely in several parts of India New Delhi, May 21 (PTi): No relief from harsh weather is likely in the next few days with IMD today saying that severe heat wave conditions will prevail in north and central parts of the country. Heat wave to severe heat wave conditions are very likely at a few places in Rajasthan, West Madhya Pradesh and Vidarbha. Heat wave conditons are very likley at isoloated places over Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, delhi, East Uttar Pradesj, Guharat region and East Madhya Pradesh,"

Another fighter then says Islamic State will come to India to liberate Muslims and avenge the violence perpetrated against them in 2002 in the western state of Gujarat as well Kashmir and the destruction of a mosque by Hindu zealots in 1992. "We will come back, with the sword, to free you, to avenge Babri mosque, Gujarat, Kashmir," the fighter says. More than 1,000 people were killed in Gujarat. Most of them were Muslims, attacked by Hindu mobs in retaliation for the burning of Hindus in a train. Modi was the chief minister of Gujarat at the time and faced allegations that he did not do enough to stop the bloodshed. But a Supreme Court-ordered investigation has said there was no case against him. India has suffered from Islamist attacks. In 2008 a militant group based in Pakistan launched a rampage through the city of Mumbai that killed 166 people and traumatised the country.

New Delhi, May 21 (PTi) Authorities cannot insist upon mentioning the name of one's biological father in passport as mother's name is sufficient in certain cases where she is a single parent, the Delhi High Court has said. "In the absence of any provision making it mandatory to mention the name of one's biological father in the passport, the respondents (passport authorities) cannot insist upon the same," Justice Manmohan said. The court also took note of the fact that families of single parents were on increase due to various reasons "like unwed mothers, sex workers, surrogate mothers, rape survivors, children abandoned by father and also children born through IVF (in vitro fertilisation) technology". "Consequently, this court is of the view that mother's name is sufficient in certain cases like the present one to apply for passport, especially as a single

woman can be a natural guardian and also a parent," it said. The order came on a woman's plea seeking re-issuance of her daughter's passport without insisting upon her father's name being mentioned in the application. The woman claimed that she was divorced from her husband, who had refused to accept her daughter as she was a girl. She said she was a single parent since her daughter's birth in 1997. She contended that insistence of passport authority on mentioning father's name in the application was violative of the rights of her daughter to determine her name and identity. The woman also said that entire record of her daughter, including her educational certificates, did not bear the name of her father and the passport authority had in 2005 and subsequently in 2011 issued a passport without insisting upon the father's name.

New Delhi, May 21 (iaNS): A Congolese national was beaten to death by three youths after a verbal altercation over the hiring of an auto-rickshaw here, police said on Saturday. One accused has been arrested while two are absconding. Masonda Ketada Olivier, 29, was mercilessly beaten by the trio around 11.30 p.m. on Friday near Kishangarh village in Vasant Kunj area in south Delhi. Olivier was hit on the head with a brick, leading to his death. Passers-by informed the police who shifted the victim to the Jaiprakash Narayan Trauma Centre where doctors declared him brought dead.

passport officer told the court that computerised passport application form has a column regarding father's name and it must be filled. The court observed that authorities can insist upon the name of biological father in the passport "only if it is a requirement in law, like standing instructions, manuals etc". Regarding the contention raised by the passport authority that computer would not accept application form without name of father being filled up, the court directed them to modify their software saying, "technology is intended to ease and facilitate transactions and cannot be the basis for creating and defeating anybody's legal rights." It also noted that on previous two occasions, passport was issued to the girl without insisting upon her father's name and it was "evident that the said requirement is not a legal necessity but only a procedural formality".

Prices of consumer goods increase in Manipur One killed as shutdown affects normal life Newmai News Network Imphal | May 21

Prices of household consumer items in Manipur have slightly risen in the past few days as there is a dearth of transportation of goods due to bandh and strikes called by different organisations to press for their demands. If such strikes continue to take place further, the cascading effect of price hike is likely to leave many households high and dry. The daily wage earners are now finding difficult to meet the rising expenditure. Frequent bandh and strikes have an im-

pact on prices of many consumer items in Manipur. Prices of pulses, potato, onion and garlic have gone up slightly in Manipur which has already been facing flood-like situation in the past few days due to incessant rain. “A kilo of onion is now being sold at Rs 25. Prices of other items have also gone up moderately,” said Irungbam Ngoubi, a housewife. But the prices are likely to fall and normalise once the ongoing public protest ends. A 38-hour mass stay away from work, called by the Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System (JCILPS),

ended at 6 pm on Saturday. Roads were blocked during the intensified protest which began at 4 am yesterday. Normal life in the valley districts of the state was affected. The valley witnessed near total shutdown on the second and last day of the strike staged as part of the campaign for introduction of ILP in Manipur. Many strike supporters obstructed traffic at different places. They braved rain-soaked roads in enforcing the bandh shouting several slogans on the demand of ILP. Meanwhile, a 43-year-old

man died here last night during the strike after his two-wheeler skidded off the road and fell, resulting in a fatal mishap. Reports said he was being chased by a group of strike supporters before he met with the accident at Uripok Tourangbam Leikai in Imphal West around 10 pm. He was identified as one O Palendro Singh from Pishum Oinam Leikai under Imphal West. Meanwhile, Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh said an all-party delegation was visiting New Delhi soon to use their best endeavours to prevail on the

Central leaders to implement the three Bills. The Chief Minister was talking to reporters on the sidelines of a function here. “The government is seeking appointment. Hope the Prime Minister and Home Minister will soon allow the delegation to meet them,” Ibobi said. He said, “The issue concerns all. Everybody has a role. The political parties need to act within the parameters of their own role.” Ibobi urged upon political parties to help his government in its efforts to fulfill the public demand of introduction of ILP.

iTaNagaR, May 21 (PTi): Perturbed over reports that some organizations are trying to create division among the people living along the inter-state border with Assam, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Kalikho Pul today said his government would take strong action against such divisive forces and appealed to the people to maintain peace. "It is unfortunate to see some organizations with vested interest are trying to disrupt the age old relationship of the people of both the states by misguiding the general people and trying to create unwanted situation along the inter-state border," Pul said in a statement here. The government would come down heavily on such divisive forces acting through social and regional media, he said. The government was conducting an inquiry into the matter and those found responsible would be punished under law, he said. Stating that the people of Assam and Arunachal have a strong bond of human relationship and cultural affinity nourished for centuries, he appealed to the people of the two states not to allow the bond to be shaken by divisive forces and maintain peace and harmony.

Besides ancient links between two civilisations, the MoS said, India is looking forward to increase interaction between the youths of both the countries for more cultural contacts and exchanges in other fields. The Chinese delegation's meeting with Rijiju assumes significance as he hails from Arunachal Pradesh, a region Beijing claims is an extension of Tibet and therefore is a part of China. Beijing has in the past either refused visas to Indian citizens hailing from the state or sought to make a diplomatic point by issuing stapled visas. Incidentally, Rijiju, as a young MP from Arunachal around 9-10 years back, was conveyed China's reluctance to issue him a visa. How-

IS threatens attacks in India Mother's name sufficient for passport: HC New Delhi, May 21 (ReuTeRS): In a rare appeal to India's Muslim minority, Islamic State says it is planning to avenge the deaths of Muslims killed in riots in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home state of Gujarat and elsewhere. India, a Hindu-majority country, is home to more than 160 million Muslims, but only a handful of them have joined the Middle Eastern group. Indian leaders and members of the community say this testifies to the strength of the country's secular democracy. In a video monitored by the U.S. intelligence group SITE, Islamic State mocked Muslims living in harmony with Hindus who worship cows, trees and the sun, and urged them to travel to IS-held territories in the "Caliphate". "In this land you get to have hatred for the kuffar [disbelievers]. In this land you get to perform jihad," said an Indian fighter who is identified as Abu Salman al-Hindi operating in the Syrian province of Homs. "In this land your religion is safe.

The officer said an argument ensued between the foreign national, who wished to go to South Extension in south Delhi where he resided in a rented accommodation, and the three accused over the hiring of an auto-rickshaw. The three suspects wanted to hire the same auto-rickshaw the victim was negotiating the fare with. "A brawl ensued after a verbal duel and the victim was mercilessly beaten up. He was hit in his head with a stone, after which he started bleeding profusely. He died when shifted to a hospital." The officer said the accused roughed up four-five passers-by too as they tried to intervene to save the victim, who taught foreign languages at a private institute.

Casual labourer's son elected Kerala legislator MuvaTTuPuzha (KeRala), May 21 (iaNS): The parents of newly elected CPI legislator Eldo Abraham are elated over his electoral victory, but also worried that they will not be able to see him take oath. For they do not own a TV. The father of the first-time MLA ekes out his living by working as a casual labourer and cannot afford a "luxury" like television. "We are happy for our son and we wish he does whatever he can for the poor and the downtrodden," said his father. The 39-year-old Abraham, previously elected to the local body, defeated sitting Congress legislator Joseph Vazhaken by 9,375 votes in Muvattupuzha constituency. When the votes were being counted on Thursday, Abraham's parents were in their neighbour's house watching the results. When their son is sworn in, they will have to again go to the neighbour's house to watch the swearing-in. Abraham and his parents live in a small two-room house.

‘Smoke reported on EgyptAir jet before crash’ PaRIs, MaY 21 (REuTERs): An EgyptAir jet sent a series of signals indicating that smoke had been detected on board before it crashed into the Mediterranean on Thursday, France’s air accident investigation agency said on Saturday. A spokesman for the BEA agency said the signals did not indicate what caused the smoke or fire on board the plane, which plunged into the sea with 66 people on board as it was heading from Paris to Cairo. But they offered the first clues as to what unfolded in the moments before the crash. One aviation source said that a fire on board would likely have generated multiple warning signals, while a sudden explosion may not have generated any - though officials stress that no scenario, including explosion, is being ruled out. Egypt said its navy had found human remains, wreckage and the personal belongings of passengers floating in the Mediterranean about 290 km (180 miles) north of Alexandria. The army published pictures on Saturday on its official Facebook page of

the recovered items, which included blue debris with EgyptAir markings, seat fabric with designs in the airline’s colours, and a yellow lifejacket. Analysis of the debris and recovery of the black boxes are likely to be key to determining the cause of the crash - the third blow since October to Egypt’s travel industry, still reel-

Twenty people die as cyclone hits Bangladesh Dhaka, MaY 21 (IaNs): At least 20 people have died since cyclone “Roanu” hit the Bangladesh coast, an official of Bangladesh’s National Disaster Response Coordination Centre (NDRCC) said on Saturday. Eleven people died in Chittagong, three each in southern Bhola and Cox’s Bazar, two in Noakhali and another in Patuakhali in southern and southeastern Bangladesh, the official told Xinhua news agency. Many Bangladesh coasts have been battered by ferocious winds with speed up to 90 kph, which uprooted trees and homes, ripped roofs off buildings and caused widespread power and water outages. Bangladesh on Friday ordered the evacuation of some 2.1 million people from its coastline as the cyclonic storm “Roanu” in the Bay of Bengal was poised to cross the country on Saturday.

Tanzanian president sacks minister for being drunk on job DaR Es saLaaM, MaY 21 (REuTERs): Tanzania’s president has sacked his home affairs minister after he turned up to parliament and answered questions while under the influence of alcohol, the presidency said late on Friday. President John Magufuli, who took office in November, has promised to tackle corruption and inefficiency in government. He has sacked several senior officials for graft and cut spending he deemed wasteful, such as scrapping official Christmas cards. Charles Kitwanga is the first minister to be fired since the cabinet’s appointment. Analysts said his sacking came as a surprise as he was widely viewed as being close to Magufuli. The presidential State House said in a statement Kitwanga was sacked after he “turned up drunk to parliament and responded to a question directed to the Ministry of Home Affairs while being in a drunken state.” It did not say when the episode took place.

South Korea launches hangover cure ice cream sEOuL, MaY 21 (REuTERs): Asia’s biggest per capita alcohol consumers are South Koreans and they can now soothe themselves after a big night out with hangover-fighting ice cream. A convenience store chain has launched the product whose name in English translates to “hang in there”. According to the company, it is the first ice cream bar marketed specifically to combat the after-effects of alcohol consumption. “When people dine together and drink too much, it is really hard for them to go work the next morning and get through the whole day. So we named the ice cream ‘Gyeondyo-bar’ in the hopes that people will get through the day well. And it contains oriental raisin extract and grapefruit flavour, so it really helps to ease a hangover, Soundbite Marketing Manager at Withme, Yu Jae-Heon told Reuters. Hangover cures in South Korea generate roughly $126 million in annual sales, according to industry data, including pills, beverages and cosmetics. “I usually have hangover-fighting drinks after I drink alcohol, but I was still always thirsty even after having those. So we actually wanted this kind of (hangover) ice-cream, which has finally launched now. As I just tasted it, it is very soft and light. It doesn’t taste like herbal medicine like those hangover cure drinks,” said Soundbite 35-year-old cook, Yeom Chul-Min. The grapefruit-flavored dessert contains oriental raisin tree fruit juice. It’s a traditional hangover remedy cited in a Korean medicine book from the 17th century and is included in popular hangover potions.

ing from political unrest following the 2011 uprising that ousted Hosni Mubarak. A suspected Islamic State bombing brought down a Russian airliner after it took off from Sharm el-Sheikh airport in late October, killing all 224 people on board, and an EgyptAir plane was hijacked in March by a man wearing a

fake suicide belt. The October crash devastated Egyptian tourism, a main source of foreign exchange for a country of 80 million people, and another similar incident would crush hopes of it recovering.

way to say what may have caused smoke or fire on board the aircraft,” said a spokesman for the French BEA agency, which is assisting an official Egyptian investigation. He added that the priority now was to find the HUNT FOR two flight recorders, known BLACK BOXES as black boxes, containing The signals from the cockpit voice recordings plane “do not allow in any and data readings, from

the Airbus A320 which vanished from radar early on Thursday. The plane is believed to have come down in a deep part of the Mediterranean, in 2,000 to 3,000 metres of water, according to a person familiar with Western naval estimates. That would place the black box locator beacons, which last for 30 days, on the edge of their detectable range from the surface using acoustic equipment typically used during the first stages of a search, according to a report into the 2009 crash of an Air France jet in the Atlantic. The flight data transmitted before the crash was sent through an automatic system called the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS), which routinely downloads maintenance and fault data to the airline operating the aircraft. Aviation website Aviation Herald published a burst of seven messages broadcast over the space of three minutes. These included alarms about smoke in the lavatory as well as the aircraft’s avionics area, which sits under the cockpit.

While suggesting a possible fire, the relatively short sequence of data gives no insight into pilot efforts to control the aircraft, nor does it show whether it fell in one piece or disintegrated in mid-air, two aviation safety experts said. “The question now is whether the fire that caused the smoke was the result of an electrical fault for example a short-circuit caused by damaged wiring - or whether some form of explosive or incendiary device was used - for example by a terrorist - to generate a fire or other damage,” aviation safety expert David Learmont said. The ACARS data suggested the fire had spread fast and “that might explain the fact that there was no distress call,” Learmont wrote in a blog. The aircraft was carrying 56 passengers, including a child and two infants, and 10 crew, EgyptAir said on Thursday. They included 30 Egyptian and 15 French nationals, along with citizens of 10 other countries. “At this very moment all scenarios are being examined and none is

being given greater emphasis,” French Foreign Affairs Minister JeanMarc Ayrault told reporters after meeting relatives of the victims of the EgyptAir crash. “Searching for the aircraft is the priority, finding the ‘black boxes’ will help answer the legitimate questions raised (by the families),” Ayrault said. France sent a plane and a navy ship to assist with the searches for the jet and three representatives of the BEA, together with an expert from Airbus, were in Cairo to help with the investigation. The naval search is centred on an area north of Alexandria, just south of where the signal from the plane was lost early on Thursday. EgyptAir Chairman Safwat Moslem told state television that the radius of the search zone was 40 miles, giving an area of 5,000 square miles, but said it may be expanded. A European satellite spotted a 2 km-long oil slick in the Mediterranean, about 40 km southeast of the aircraft’s last known position, the European Space Agency said.

Snubbed by West, Russia rolls Both Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump out red carpet for Asian leaders ‘extraordinarily unpopular’: Poll says sOChI, MaY 21 (REuTERs): The Kremlin has seized on the visit by southeast Asian leaders for a summit as an opportunity to show Russia still has friends on the international stage, despite being cold-shouldered by the West over the conflict in Ukraine. Russia has had few chances to host major international gatherings since Western sanctions were imposed, so there has been considerable fanfare around this week’s summit with members of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN). A special commemorative coin was minted for the occasion, Russian President Vladimir Putin flew most of his government to the Black Sea resort of Sochi to take part, and state television broadcast a prime-time report showing how cleaners were vacuuming the carpet at the summit venue in preparation. While the formal agenda of the two-day summit that ends on Friday has focussed on building Russia’s ties with ASEAN member countries such as Vietnam, Thailand and Myanmar, it has also been conducted with an eye

the television report, Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said: “It’s true. I cannot talk about particular cases with Malaysia and the Philippines, but in general the United States always applies this kind of pressure.” Russia had been due to host a summit of the Group of Eight industrialised nations, also in Sochi, in June 2014, but this was cancelled because Western nations objected to Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region. Since then, most heads of government from major Western states have stayed away. The biggest multilateral event since then has been a gathering of BRIC nations - Brazil, Russia, India and China - in the Russian city of Ufa in July 2015. There have been tentative signs, however, that foreign leaders are thawing towards Russia. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited Putin at his summer residence in Sochi earlier this month, and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi plans to attend an economic forum in Russia’s second city AMERICAN “PRESSURE” Asked by Reuters about of St Petersburg in June. on the United States and Europe. “These are difficult times. Europe and America, by declaring sanctions against us, have basically turned away from us, or turned their backs on us,” said Andrei Vorobyov, governor of the Moscow region, part of the Russian delegation at the summit. “But countries in the Asian and Pacific regions are working very actively with us, and that is very important, very nice,” he told a session on the sidelines of the summit. ASEAN members range from emerging market powerhouse Indonesia to wealthy city state Singapore, but the grouping excludes Asia’s economic giants China, Japan and India. Channel One television station, which echoes the Kremlin line, alleged that the U.S. government had tried to dissuade some ASEAN head of government, in particular those from the Philippines and Malaysia, from travelling to Sochi, but that they snubbed Washington and came anyway.

WashINgTON, MaY 21 (IaNs): Democrat front-runner and Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump were deemed “extraordinarily unpopular” as they head into their party’s conventions in July, a new poll showed. According to the joint New York Times and CBS poll released on Friday, nearly two-thirds -- 64% -- of registered voters answered “no” when asked if Trump and Clinton are “honest and trustworthy”, CNN reported. Two-thirds of voters also said Trump does not share their values, while only 37% of voters said Clinton did share their values. Seventy percent of registered vot-

ers said Trump does not have the right temperament, while only 48% said the former secretary of state had the right temperament, the poll found. However, the majority of voters said both Trump (55%) and Clinton (54%) have “strong qualities of leadership”. Eighty percent of Democrat voters said they were “mostly hopeful” about the future of their party. More than half -- 55% -- of Republican voters said they are “mostly hopeful” about the future of their party. The nationwide poll was conducted on smartphones and landlines between May 13-17 with 1,109 registered voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Thai king treated for ‘water on the brain’ BaNgkOk, MaY 21 (REuTERs): Thailand’s 88-year-old King Bhumibol Adulyadej has received treatment for ‘water on the brain’, the Royal Household Bureau said in a statement on Friday. The world’s longest-reigning monarch has been treated for various ailments during a year-long hospitalisation in the Thai capital. He was last seen in public on Jan. 11, when he spent a few hours visiting his Bangkok palace. Most Thais have known no other monarch, as the widely revered king ascended the throne 70 years ago. He has spent most of the past six years in hospital, and nervousness over his health and the succession has formed the backdrop

to more than a decade of political crisis in Thailand, where the military took power in a coup two years ago. The palace said examination of the king showed he had ‘water on the brain’, or hydrocephalus, a build-up of the cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds the brain. He was treated for the same thing last August. Fluid was drained and the king was being monitored, the statement said. News about the royals is tightly controlled in Thailand, where laws protecting the royal family from insult make it a crime to defame, insult or threaten the king, queen, heir to the throne or regent. Updates on King Bhumibol’s health are typically made public once he is recovering.

Mexico to extradite “El Chapo” to US; won’t face death penalty MEXICO CITY, MaY 21 (REuTERs): Mexico approved the extradition of drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to the United States on Friday after receiving guarantees he would not face the death penalty, and the kinkgpin’s lawyers vowed to block the move. Juan Pablo Badillo, one of Guzman’s lawyers, told Reuters he would file “many” legal challenges in the coming days, which could delay the drug lord’s eventual extradition for weeks. Guzman, head of the Sinaloa drug cartel, was the world’s most wanted drug kingpin until his capture in January, six months after he broke out of a high-security penitentiary in central Mexico through a mile-long tunnel burrowed right up into his cell. Mexico’s foreign ministry said he would face charges including drug trafficking, money laundering and murder in U.S. federal courts in California and Texas. The ministry said it was given “sufficient guarantees” by the U.S. government that Guzman would not be executed. It was not immediately clear where Guzman would be sent in the United States.

(AP File Photo)

official confirmed that the United States had agreed not to seek the death penalty, but declined to discuss any further details about the case or what the department will do pending a Guzman appeal. Asked whether he would file legal challenges on behalf of Guzman, Badillo said: “Of course. Five, 10, whatever is necessary.”

Guzman’s escape last year was a major embarrassment to President Enrique Pena Nieto, who entered office amid a bloody war between the government and drug cartels launched by his predecessor. Pena Nieto dialed back cooperation with the United States after taking office in 2013, but soon after Guzman’s recapture in Janu-

ary he said he had taken steps to ensure the kingpin would be extradited as soon as possible. Mike Vigil, a former U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration chief of international operations, said he did not think the United States needed to do much to convince Mexico to extradite Guzman, since the longer he stayed in the

country, the more opportunities the drug lord would have to stage another potentially embarrassing jailbreak. Vigil said Mexican officials told him that it is currently costing the government $100,000 per week to keep the kingpin in prison. “Mexico knows they have no penitentiary that can hold him given their limited resources and his power to intimidate,” said Vigil, who now works as an independent consultant. “I believe he will definitely die in a U.S. prison cell.” Earlier this month, Guzman was moved from a jail in central Mexico to a prison in Ciudad Juarez on the U.S. border, seen as a step closer to extradition. Mexican authorities say they tracked Guzman down after he sought to make a movie about his life and met with Mexican actress Kate del Castillo and Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn, who published an interview with the drug boss in Rolling Stone. In a plot worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster, the trio met at a jungle hideout, unwittingly monitored by Mexican security

forces. Guzman was finally apprehended around 3 months later as he sought to flee through drains from a safehouse in his native state of Sinaloa along with his chief hitman. Guzman, whose nickname means “Shorty”, first escaped prison in 2001 by bribing prison officials, and went on to dominate the world of Mexican drug trafficking. He was recaptured by Pena Nieto’s government in 2014 but escaped in July by capitalizing on the drugtunneling skills his cartel honed on the U.S. border. A mile-long tunnel equipped with electric lights, rails and a motorbike came out directly into the shower of his prison cell and he simply slipped away. Dozens of people were arrested over the jailbreak, though details of who Guzman bribed and how his accomplices knew exactly where to dig into the prison remain scarce. With Chapo back behind bars, his more discreet partner, Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, who jointly heads the powerful Sinaloa cartel, is the last major Mexican capo standing.

Griezmann one of the world's top three – Simeone

maDriD, may 21 (aFp): Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone hailed star forward Antoine Griezmann as "one of the best three players in the world" as Atletico prepare to face local rivals Real Madrid in next Saturday's Champions League final. Griezmann has enjoyed his best ever goal-scoring season with 32 goals in all competitions. However, the French international has been particularly effective in the Champions League as his double against Barcelona in the quarter-finals and vital away goal at Bayern Munich in the last four allowed Atletico to upset the odds and reach a second final in three seasons. "He has worked very hard, pushed himself and knows how to listen," Simeone said on Saturday. "The best way to improve in any job is to listen. Without doubt he is one of the best three players in the

world." The majority of the stars will be on Real's side as Atletico aim to avenge their defeat in agonising fashion in the final two years ago by winning the competition for the first time in Milan next weekend. Simeone's men were on course for victory in Lisbon until Sergio Ramos headed Real level deep into injury time and Los Blancos ran out 4-1 winners after extratime. Yet, despite the presence of three-time World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo, the world's most expensive player in Gareth Bale and the likes of Karim Benzema and Luka Modric, Simeone expects the Real to play on the counterattack. "In the Champions League that is clearly the route they have chosen," added Simeone. "I expect an opponent that will wait for their opportunity. The presence of Casemiro in midfield has

given them a lot of power defensively and in the Champions League they have played on the counter-attack." Real's route to the final has been a much easier one on paper than Atletico's treacherous course past Dutch champions PSV before dumping out Barca and Bayern. Los Blancos brushed aside Roma before squeezing past Wolfsburg and Manchester City. However, Simeone also reserved praise for how Zinedine Zidane has revived Real's fortunes since taking over as coach from the sacked Rafael Benitez in January. "He has recovered the confidence, intensity and the speed of their attack," added the Argentine. "He has a more concrete style to make the most of the three strikers. "To get to a Champions League final is an important demonstration of his work."

Visakhapatnam, may 21 (pti): Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni singlehandedly scripted Rising Pune Supergiants' face-saving four-wicket win over Kings XI Punjab with a last ball six to help them avoid a last-place finish in the Indian Premier League here today. Chasing 173, Pune never looked in contention, but Dhoni played the lone ranger with an unbeaten 32-ball 64 to secure an improbable win for the debutants. Pune looked down and out at 86 for five in the 14th over before Dhoni brought out his best and smashed five sixes and four boundaries. Needing 23 runs in the last over, Dhoni struck three sixes and a four. In the last ball of the match, RPS required six for victory and the captain lofted one over the midwicket boundary. However, for Dhoni, who had successfully led Chennai Super Kings in the previous editions of the tournament, mostly finishing in top four besides winning the title twice, this has been his most disappointing campaign. Earlier, Ravichandran Ashwin chipped in with a four-wicket haul to restrict KXIP to 172 for seven in the allotted 20 overs. Captain Murali Vijay and Gurkeerat Mann hit fine half-centuries to take the team to a competitive total. The loss has

pushed KXIP to the bottom of the heap with just eight points from 14 games. Opting to bat, Vijay led from the front, scoring a 41-ball 59 that included four hits to the fence and three sixes. He also shared a valuable opening partnership of 60 runs with Hashim Amla (30). Ashwin got the breakthrough for Pune when he dismissed Amla, and in the very next over wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha (3) was also sent back to the dressing room with Adam Zampa doing the damage. But Vijay and Gurkeerat played with responsibility to steady the boat. The duo put on a 58-run stand for the third wicket before the skipper fell to Ashwin. Ashwin further tighten the noose by dismissing Gurkeerat and new batsman David Miller in his next over. None of the lower-order batsmen reached the double figures with Miller concluding a miserable tournament with another failure. Ashwin was the pick of the bowlers for RPS with figures of four for 34 from four overs.

A record-breaking deal with ease the strains on Barca's finances with a 420-million euro renovation of their Camp Nou stadium due to begin in 2018.

Thakur set to become Sevilla, Liverpool charged after crowd trouble in Europa final youngest BCCI President

mumbai, may 21 (pti): Anurag Thakur is set to be unanimously elected as the BCCI's youngest President in the Board's Special General Meeting (SGM) here tomorrow, replacing Shashank Manohar who quit the position to take up the ICC chief's job. Thakur, who resigned as the Secretary of the Board, got the signatures of all six east zone units in his BCCI presidential nomination form as he completed the formalities in presence of former India captain and CAB president Sourav Ganguly here. Just to show solidarity, all the six east units, Cricket Association of Bengal, Assam CA, Tripura CA, NCC and Jharkhand SCA signed his nomination papers even though the rules require only one unit to nominate the name for presidential candidate. Thakur filed his nomination in the presence of Ganguly, BCCI's GM (Game Development) Ratnakar Shetty and probable secretary Ajay Shirke.

Olympics dream over for boxers Mary Kom, Sarita astana, may 21 (ians): India's deemed Olympics medal prospects vanished as former world champions, M.C. Mary Kom and L. Sarita Devi failed to qualify for the Rio Games after their second round exit from the Women's World Boxing Championships here on Saturday. While Mary, a five-time world champion, lost 0-2 to Germany's Azize Nimani in the flyweight category (51 kg), Asian Games 2014 bronze medallist Sarita lost 0-3 to Mexican Victoria Torres in the lightweight (60 kg) competition. World Championships are the final qualifying competition for the Rio Games to be held from August 5-21. Only three weight categories of 51 kg, 60 kg and 75 kg are part of the women's boxing competitions at the Olympics. An entry into the semi-finals not only assures the boxer of a medal but also a berth for the Olympics. However, one more Indian pugilist -- Pooja Rani (75 kg) -- is still in contention in the World Championships and will be eying a berth for the Olympics. The feature of both the losses suffered by the Indians was that they lost to younger opponents. Mary Kom had earlier said that she will quit the sport post the 2016 Olympics and with the loss, it could be the end of an illustrious career. Mary's state-mate Sarita, 31, will also find it difficult to qualify for the 2020 Olympics -- which is a farfetched dream at the moment. During the bout, London Olympics bronze medallist Mary started off positively but 25-year-old Azize played a tactical bout of strong defence and made the most of limited opportunities. The 2014 Asian Games champion attacked Azize but Azize was able to keep her at a distance and didn't allow herself to be in a position to concede too many. The young German managed to be successful in her tactics despite a fiesty Mary upping the ante in the final moments. With the loss, the hopes of Mary, mother of three from Manipur, to qualify for the Games fizzled out. Azize will next be up against top seed Davide Marzia of Italy, who got the better of Hungary's Katalin Ancsin. In the other bout, 31-year-old Sarita was outboxed and outpunched by 25-year-old Victoria, who looked sharper within the ring. Both waited for each other to open up but that didn't happen but the sharp reflexes of the Mexican gave her dominance as she ran away with a 3-0 triumph.

Mohun Bagan beat Aizawl to lift 14th Fed Cup title Guwahati, may 21 (ians): A second half attacking blitz buoyed by a Jeje Lalpekhlua brace enabled Mohun Bagan to extend their Federation Cup hegemony humiliating Aizawl FC 5-0 in the final here on Saturday. It was Mohun Bagan's record-stretching 14 Fed Cup triumph, in their 19th final, leading from their nearest rivals East Bengal (8) by a fair distance. It was however their first win since 2008. After a goalless first half, Mohun Bagan stepped on the pedal and scored through Sony Norde (48th minute), Dhanachandar Singh (58 and 88), Jeje Lalpekhlua (73) and Bikramjit Singh (82) to complete the rout. It was the highest margin recorded in the final of the tournament. India international Jeje became the highest scorer of the tournament with 8 strikes in 5 games. The match began at a fierce pace at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium. Both teams were keen to get an early goal and set the tone for the rest of the match. A light drizzle made the turf slippery and the ball movement swift. Mohun Bagan's formidable attacking trio of Sony Norde, Cornell Glen and Jeje Lalpekhlua were mobile upfront, interchanging positions and linking up with the hope of finding gaps. Aizawl took a different approach, driving forward through the middle channel. Yuta Kinowaki, Alfred Jarayan and Joel Sunday bossed the midfield zone, moving unchallenged to the Mohun Bagan deep defence. They took several feeble shots at the goal forcing goalkeeper Debjit Majumdar to dive around. Glen got a good opportunity in the 34th minute when he found himself unmarked inside the box following a Katusmi Yusa corner but could only muster a weak shot. The script remained similar till half-time when it remained goalless. But a change of ends altered the flow of the proceedings Norde put Mohun Bagan ahead with a calm and controlled finish in the 48th. Bikramjit Singh's chip inside the box, after a largely silent first half, was intelligently chested down by Jeje for an onrushing Norde to place it in. The Haitian was composed while placing the ball. The goal disoriented the young and youthful Aizawl players. Sensing a crack in their confidence, Mohun Bagan intensified their pressure. And were rewarded for their experience and accurate reading of the game just on the stroke of the hour mark. Unmarked defender Dhanachandra Singh leapt the highest and successfully headed in a swerving Katsumi corner to double the advantage. It broke Aizawl's backbone allowing Mohun Bagan to ram their advantage home.

film’s trailer shown at Cannes

T

he world premiere and the trailer launch of “One Under the Sun”, starring Bollywood actress Pooja Batra, took place at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival. The former beauty queen, who set her Bollywood aspirations aside to marry Los Angeles-based orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Sonu Ahluwalia, was spotted having her moment under the sun here.

Zac Efron: I used to Google myself daily

A

ctor Zac Efron has admitted he used to Google himself every day until he realised three years ago that he should not be viewing himself through other people’s pictures. The 28-year-old ‘We Are Your Friends’ star said there was a time where he used to check what people were saying about him on a daily basis until he realised he was not ‘living his own life,’ reported Female First. “What I found is structure. That led me to a balance of opposites. You get out of life what you put in.” “There was a moment when my morning routine was, like, get up and Google yourself,” Zac Efron said. “But that stopped, dramatically and instantly, probably three years ago. I realised that viewing yourself through other people’s pictures is not living your own life. I wasn’t really being myself. A lot of my hobbies had gone out the window. I couldn’t skateboard or surf for fear of being followed. Crossing the line of fear is what leads to greatness,” he said. Source: PTI

it takes, a true go-getter”. “One Under the Sun” is the story of astronaut Kathryn Voss (Pooja), a sole survivor of a disastrous space shuttle mission. As a distraught mother desperate to reunite with her terminally ill daughter, she becomes a wanted fugitive after discovering she possesses an extraordinary gift. Co-director Vincent Tran has praised Pooja for her hard work and dedication towards the project. He said: “Pooja’s acting in ‘One Under the Sun’ brings audiences on an emotional journey and challenges their notions of war.” The trailer launch took place recently at the Indian Pavilion of Cannes Film Festival where Sunny Vachher, Isha Vachher, Thomas Pierce, co-director Riyanna Hartley, managing director of World News Network Satish Reddy, co-director Vincent Tran, Pooja, actor Rich Paul, executive producer Mike LeBlanc were present along with many delegates from India and the international film fraternity.
