(Cong-78, JD(S)-37 and BSP-1), besides the Speaker. With the support of the two independents, who Monday resigned from the ministry, the BJP has 107 MLAs in the 224-member House, where the half-way mark is 113. If the resignations of the 16 MLAs are accepted, the coalition’s tally will be reduced to 100. Shivakumar, two others detained by Mumbai police: Karnataka minister D.K. Shivakumar and his Congress colleagues Milind Deora and Naseem Khan were detained on Wednesday outside a hotel where rebel MPs are holed up amid

high drama and deepening uncertainty about the future of the state’s ruling coalition. Shivakumar, the Congress’ troubleshooter, had been camping outside the Renaissance Hotel in Powai since morning, determined to meet the rebel MPs in a desperate bid to pull the Congress-JD(S) government from the brink of collapse. Security personnel, camera crews, media personnel and political workers jostled with each other outside the luxury hotel that has become the centrepiece of the crisis in Karnataka. Slogans of “Shivakumar go

back” were raised and some people clambered on to the high gates of the hotel on the outskirts of the city. Shivakumar was being interviewed by a TV channel when he was almost pulled away by Mumbai Police and detained. Former Union minister Deora and former Maharashtra minister Khan who had come to meet him were also detained. 10 rebel MLAs of Cong and JD(S) move SC: The political crisis in Karnataka Wednesday reached the Supreme Court as 10 rebel Congress and JD(S) MLAs moved their plea alleging that the state Assembly Speaker has been deliberately not accepting their resignations. A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi took note of the submission of senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for the rebel MLAs, and assured him that it will see whether their petition can be listed for an urgent hearing tomorrow. The senior lawyer said these lawmakers have already resigned from their membership of the assembly and wanted to contest fresh elections.

Cong crisis deepens India leads world in child sexual abuse as 10 out of 15 Goa MLAs switch to BJP Nagaland reports 26 cases under POCSO NEW DELHI, JUL 10 (AGENCIES): While Karanataka remains on edge due to the latest political crisis in the JDS-Congress government, Congress sunk deeper on Wednesday with 10 MLAs in Goa approaching the Speaker, wanting to join the BJP. This comes even before the situation in Karnataka could be resolved and MLAs continued to resign even on Wednesday. The Goa MLAs, led by Leader of Opposition Chandrakant Kavlekar, met the Seaker Rajesh Patnekar in the evening and gave him a letter informing him about them breaking away from the Congress. Congress which had emerged as the single largest party with 17 MLAs in the 2017 assembly polls is now left with only five MLAs. Those who are not part of Wednesday’s split are four former chief ministers– Pratapsingh Rane, Digambar Kamat, Ravi Naik and Luizinho Faleiro. Curtorim MLA Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco has also remained with the party.

Participants along with the resource persons at the state level consultation on child sexual abuse.


KOHIMA JUL 10 (NPN): India has the world’s highest incidences of child sexual abuse. And altogether 36,022 child abuse cases were registered under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act in 2014-2016, with Nagaland having registered 29 cases. World Vision India (WVI) senior director Dr Anjana Purkayastha shared these details at the State level consultation on “It takes Nagaland to End Child Sexual Abuse”, organised by social welfare department and Childline 1098 at Hotal Japfu here on Wednesday. According to Purkayastha, every 1.55 minute, a child below the age of 16 years was raped in the

country, adding cases registered under POCSO Act post 2014-2016 might have increased. Mentioning that child abuse occurred at home, schools, workplaces and institutions and in the community, she warned that such abuses during childhood had an adverse impact when a child grew up as an adult. Purkayastha said WVI wanted to reach the grassroots level and positively impact lives of 10 million most vulnerable girls and boys by 2021 to end child sex abuse. To achieve this target, she said awareness campaigns should be carried out within the communities, implementation of effective laws and policies strengthened and functioning of child protection system ensured by 2021.

In his address, school education principal director Shanavas C remarked that while the number of cases registered under POCSO Act was high, there were also many cases that went unreported. He mentioned that child sexual abuses occurred in Nagaland too, but many such cases went reported because of pressure from family members and relatives. He pointed out that as Nagaland had special provision under the Constitution of India, many such cases were settled under customary laws, which was unfortunate. He said in such matters, the customary laws and the relevant laws of the land must be combined for ensuring stringent punishment to the perpetrators. (Cont’d on p-7)

APO seeks clarity on Centre focuses on health, agri, infra in NE Railways to offer additional 4 lakh berths per day by October modalities for RIIN

DIMAPUR, JUL 10 (NPN): Angami Public Organisation (APO), apex body of the Angami communjity, has sought clarity from the state government on what was meant by the official notification issued on June 29,2019 for setting up the Register of Indigenous Inhabitant of Nagaland (RIIN) that was to serve as a master list of indigenous inhabitants of Nagaland. This was stated in a joint release by APO president Dr.Kepelhousie Terhuja and secretary information & publicity Mrs. Neithono Sothu. They said APO had deliberated at length on the proposed RIIN as per the government notification and concluded that there was need for further clarity over what was meant by “ List of Indigenous Inhabitant based on official

records”. APO said it endorsed the government notification dated April 28,1977 wherein the criteria for a person to qualify as indigenous inhabitant of Nagaland had been clearly spelt out for issuing Indigenous Inhabitant Certificate. In the light of the above, the duo said APO held the view that proper modalities should be framed by the government before actual Register of Indigenous Inhabitant of Nagaland takes shape. Further, APO also felt that the time frame of only 60 days to prepare and submit the list was “too limited” as this could hamper the proposed extensive survey work. Therefore, Angami Public Organisation has suggested that sufficient time should be given to prepare the list.

AGARTALA, JUL 10 (IANS): Development of North Eastern Region Ministry (DoNER) is taking steps on a war-footing to develop five basic sectors including health, education and agriculture, in 14 districts of the northeastern region, an official said on Wednesday. NITI Aayog had identified these 14 districts in the eight northeastern states in 2018. The Centre and the respective states would jointly make efforts to improve the five basic sectors in the selected districts. These include health and nutrition, education, agriculture and water resources, financial inclusion and skill development and basic infrastructure, which have a direct bearing on the quality of life and economic productivity of the people. “DoNER secretar y Inder Jit Singh chaired a meeting with chief nodal officers and nodal officers of aspirational districts of

northeastern region on Tuesday in New Delhi. He asked the officials to take steps to develop five basic sectors of these districts,” a Tripura government official said. During the meeting, the nodal officers of the aspirational districts explained the projects undertaken in the 14 districts. The official said that Singh directed the concerned officers to monitor the progress in these districts on different parameters on a regular basis. “DoNER secretar y asked the officials to coordinate with the line ministries of the Central government, state governments and district administrations to intensify their efforts for development of aspirational districts,” he added. NITI Aayog has selected seven aspirational districts in Assam (Barpeta, Baksa, Darang, Dubri, Goalpara, Hailkandi and Udalguri) and one each in Arunachal Pradesh (Namsai district),

The mystery of the ‘missing’ `1.7 lakh cr in Budget NEW DELHI, JUL 10 (AGENCIES): Three days after the Union Budget was presented, questions have surfaced over a nearly Rs. 2 lakh crore ‘fiscal hole’ in India’s financial accounts, NDTV report stated. The anomaly was first picked up by Rathin Roy, a member of the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council. Writing in the Business Standard, he studied both the Economic Survey and the Budget and found that the revenue estimates for 2018-19, in other words how much the government has earned, is a percentage point lower in the Survey than cited in the Budget. That percentage point amounts to a whopping Rs. 1.7 lakh crore, a massive shortfall in earnings. The Budget uses what is called the Revised Esti-

mates (RE), a projection of how much the government was expected to earn, while the Economic Survey uses what is known as provisional actuals (PA), an updated, more accurate estimate of government accounts. The Revised Estimates used in the Budget show earnings of Rs. 17.3 lakh crore in 2018-19, while the updated, provisional accounts in the Economic Survey show that the government has earned far less, Rs. 15.6 lakh crore, a shortfall of Rs. 1.7 lakh crore. In percentage terms (total revenue as percentage of GDP), the Revised Estimate in the Budget pegs the figure at 9.2 per cent, while the updated number in the Economic Survey shows this as a whole percentage point

lower at 8.2 per cent. This discrepancy is also reflected in government spending. Spending was shown in the Budget at Rs. 24.6 lakh crore in 201819, while the more accurate figure in the Economic Survey shows that the government only spent about Rs. 23.1 lakh crore, about Rs. 1.5 lakh crore less. The source of the shortfall: a drop in tax revenue. While according to the Budget, it was expected that the government would earn about Rs. 14.8 lakh crore from taxes last year, the Economic Survey’s more updated figures tell us that they only earned about Rs. 13.2 lakh crore. Questions sent to the Finance Ministry did not meet with a reply. Pronab Sen, former Chairman of the National Statistical Commission and

India’s First Chief Statistician, told NDTV: “This is very much a matter of concern.” “As I make out, the figures in the Economic Survey are much closer to the (actual) figures. The figures in the Budget are way, way higher. Now the problem this causes is if you have to meet your fiscal deficit target, you’re going to have dramatic cuts somewhere in the Budget. This really sends the plans of the Ministry haywire”, he said. “If the provisional actual figures are correct, then the only (solution) is to present a new Budget”, said Jayati Ghosh, professor of Economics at the Centre for Economic Studies and Planning, School of Social Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.

Manipur (Chandel), Meghalaya (Ribhoi), Mizoram (Mamit), Nagaland (Kiphire), Tripura (Dhalai) and Sikkim (West Sikkim). Meanwhile, According to a report by The Wire, DoNER ministry has spent Rs 1,047.73 crore during the 2018-19 fiscal – the lowest since the Narendra Modi government came to power in 2014. According to written information provided to the parliament by DoNER minister Dr. Jitendra Singh,, while the ministry spent Rs 1,230.67 crore in the 2014-15 financial year, during 201819, its total spending plummeted by over Rs 150 crore. In Nagaland, DoNER slashed its allocation from Rs 155.18 crore in 2014-15 to Rs 94.40 crore last fiscal. Out of last fiscal’s spending, the lowest amount was earmarked for Tripura. At Rs 35.05 crore, the ministry’s spending on the state had significantly reduced from Rs 99.72 crore in 2014-15.

NEW DELHI, JUL 10 (PTI): More than four lakh additional berths will be available to railway passengers every day from October, thanks to a new technology that will allow power generation cars to be replaced with sleeper coaches, senior officials said Wednesday. Currently, most trains have power cars housing diesel generators, which supply electricity to coaches for various purposes including lighting, fans and air conditioning. Indian Railways now plans to introduce a new technology, known as “Head on Generation” (HOG), which is already in use worldwide. In it power supply is tapped from overhead power lines and distributed to train coaches. Currently, the power tapped from overhead tension wires through an equipment known as pantograph is used only to run the engines.

Rio, others condole Joseph Sumi’s demise DIMAPUR, JUL 10 (NPN): Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio and various other organizations have condoled the demise of Joseph Sumi. CM: Rio in his condolence message expressed shock to learn of the untimely demise of Joseph Sumi, vice president of Nagaland Football Association and president Dimapur District Football Association. Rio said late Joseph was a well known personality who contributed his best for the development and improvement of sports, particularly football. Rio on behalf of the entire Olympic and sports fraternity of Nagaland conveyed heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family members and the football association. He also prayed that the departed soul rest in eternal peace.

SCD: Sumi Council Dimapur (SCD) expressed pain to know about the demise of Joseph Sumi. In a condolence message, SCD chairman Kuhoi Zhimo described late Joseph as a dedicated sportsman whose contribution towards building a better Nagaland in the field of sports especially Football was remarkable. SCD said that the demise of late Joseph has caused a vacuum that will bedifficult to fill. Kuhoi also recalled that late Joseph’s amiable character made him a popular person amongst the Football lovers and Nagas in general. Kuhoi, on behalf of his family and on behalf of Sumi Council Dimapur expressed deepest condolences to the bereaved family members and prayed that the departed soul rest in eternal (More on p-2) peace.

Officials say by October this year, over 5,000 coaches of the Indian Railways will be modified to run on the new technology so that they will be able to accept power coming from the overhead cables via the engines. This will not only enable trains to shed their power cars and make way for more coaches but also save the national transporter more Rs 6,000 crore in fuel bills annually, they said. A power car needs 40 litres of diesel per hour per non-AC coach while an AC coach needs 65-70 litres of diesel per hour. Around three units of electricity is provided by one litre of diesel, so a non-AC coach uses around 120 units of electricity per hour. The new system, which is eco-friendly, with no air or noise pollution will reduce carbon emissions by 700 MT per year per train, officials said.

loan from any department or firm. He said any type of loan that is provided by the government should not be put into wastage but to sustain one’s livelihood and to pull back into the right track. However, he lamented that many Naga people today instead of doing something better to sustain in the long run, apply for loan just to avail subsidy from the government which is an act of dishonest in

society. He also said that Nagas were known to be honest, loyal and straight forward people, but today that spirit has been lost because many people even forget to repay back the loan. He therefore, urged those people who have availed loan but yet to recover to make repayment as early as possible. DC also called upon the agri and allied department to extend farmers of the district with whatever schemes and loan that may be provided by the government from time to time. Speaking on the “Sustainable Agriculture” Thainyu Phom (AFA) Agri office Longleng said, organic farming can be profitable to the consumers. She said pesticides and chemicals sprayed on plants contaminates the soil, water supply and air and may stick around for decades. She advised the farmers to adopt organic farming system so to sustain the health of soils, ecosystem and people. She appealed to all that Nagas should help

each other to keep the economy generated and circulating within the state.

Javadekar slams Congress for disturbing Rajya Sabha

NEW DELHI, JUl 10 (PTI): Union minister Prakash Javadekar on Wednesday hit out at the Congress for “disturbing” the Rajya Sabha, alleging that the opposition party was not letting the House function over its internal problems in Karnataka. Congress members on Wednesday disrupted proceedings in the Upper House for the second day over the Karnataka crisis and accused the BJP of trying to destabilise its coalition government with the JD(S) there. The House saw two adjournments in the prelunch period that saw the washing out of the Zero Hour and the Question Hour. This is the second day in a row during the current session of Parliament that the Rajya Sabha failed to transact any business. “Congress is disturbing the House even after the massive loss in the elections and after a decisive mandate

Prakash Javadekar

they, as well as everybody, is expected (to ensure) that the Houses run smoothly,” Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar said. “Now they are raising the issue of a state which is not allowed here. They are charging that the BJP is poaching, but actually it is the Congress which is doing all kinds of efforts,” he told reporters. Javadekar accused the Congress of offering ministerial berths

to rebel MLAs and giving other “lollipops”. It is an internal party problem as those MLAs who have resigned have blamed their own leadership, Javadekar said. The year-old Congress-Janata Dal (S) coalition government in Karnataka is on the brink of collapse after a spate of resignations by MLAs. The Karnataka Assembly has 225 members, including one nominated MLA. The halfway mark in the 225-member assembly is 113.

Misa Bharti chargesheeted in PMLA case NEW DELHI, JUL 10 (IANS): The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday filed a supplementary chargesheet in a money laundering case involving RJD supremo Lalu Yadav's daughter Misa Bharati and her husband. The charge sheet was filed before Special CBI Judge Arun Bhardwaj, who will take cognisance of the document on July 27. The supplementary chargesheet names 35 fresh accused of which 20 are firms. In 2017, the Enforcement Directorate had raided the farmhouse and a few other locations as part of its probe against two brothers -- Surendra Kumar Jain and Virendra Jain -- and others, who were alleged to have laundered several crores of rupees using shell companies. The Jain brothers were arrested by the ED under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. The ED had also arrested Rajesh Agrawal, a chartered accountant who had allegedly mediated and provided a cash amount of Rs 90 lakh to the Jain brothers in advance.


HC dismisses plea to make Delhi Metro free for women NEW DELHI, JUL 10 (PTI): The Delhi High Court Wednesday dismissed a petition challenging the AAP government’s proposal to make metro ride free for women, saying it is for the authorities to decide on giving concession to a particular class. A bench of Chief Justice D N Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar refused to entertain the plea, saying there is no substance in it and imposed a cost of Rs 10,000 on the petitioner to be deposited within four weeks. The court also rejected the prayer in the petition seeking reduction of fares and to make 15 slabs of the ticket price instead of existing six. “Fixation of fares is a statutory function and the process of fixation is complex which involves consideration of several factors, including cost. All these factors cannot be determined in a PIL,” the bench said. It said the petitioner, advocate Bipin Bihari Singh, has failed to point out any

illegality in fixation of fares and added that the court will be “extremely slow” in fixing the fares for Delhi Metro which is the prerogative of the government. With Assembly polls due early next year in the city, the Aam Aadmi Party government in June announced that it has proposed to make metro and bus travels free for women in Delhi “to encourage them to use public transport”. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said the Delhi government will bear the travel expenses of women. The court also noted that two similar petitions relating to Delhi Metro fares were filed earlier as well and they were not entertained either. “We are not inclined

to give any direction, much less in the nature of mandamus to respondents no. 1 to 3 (Delhi government, union of India and DMRC) on fixation of fares which prevailing today,” the bench said. Regarding the prayer that Delhi government be directed not to take any step to make metro ride free for women, the court observed that though this plea has been made, it has not been argued by the petitioner. The bench said it was left open for the authorities to give or not to give any concession to a particular class in metro ride fares. It was informed by Delhi government additional standing counsel Sanjoy Ghosh that the plea was premature as presently no such

exemption has been given to the women to travel in the metro and the proposal is still under consideration. Union of India was represented by Central government standing counsel Gaurang Kanth. The petition challenged the proposal of Delhi government to make metro ride free for women saying such a move would create a parallel arbitrary discrimination against other poorer sections of the society who find it economically difficult to travel in metro after ticket prices were hiked. It said none of the first three fare fixation committees constituted earlier had recommended such a drastic increase in fares in Delhi metro. “The number of fare slabs which stood at 15 for the last over 11 years from December 2005 to May 2017, has been unfairly reduced to six slabs... Therefore, a reduction in fares would not only bring a lot of relief to the passengers travelling in metro but would also increase the ridership,” it said.

SC to consider plea for early hearing of PIL challenging Article 370 Mother’s prayers bring ‘dead’ son to life Upadhyay, in his plea which was filed in September last year, has contended that the special provision was “temporary” in nature at the time of framing of the Constitution and Article 370(3) lapsed with the dissolution of the Jammu and Kashmir Constituent Assembly on January 26, 1957. The plea also seeks a declaration from the apex court that the separate Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir was “arbitrary” and “unconstitutional” on various grounds, including that it was against the “supremacy of the Constitution of India and contrary to dictum of ‘One Nation, One Constitution, One National Anthem and One National Flag’”.

“The Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir is invalid mainly for the reason that the same has not yet got the assent of the President, which is mandatory as per provisions of the Constitution of India,” the plea,

which may come up for hearing next week, said. The petition, filed through advocate R D Upadhyay, claims that the maximum life span of Article 370 was only till the existence of the Constituent

Assembly, that was January 26, 1950 when the national document was adopted. Article 370 is a “temporary provision” with respect to Jammu and Kashmir and restricts the applicability of various provisions of the Constitution by “curtailing” the power of Parliament to make laws on subjects which fall under the Union and Concurrent lists, it said. Consequently, it allows the state to accord special rights and privileges to the natives, the plea said. It claimed that the Article empowered the state legislature to frame any law without attracting a challenge on the grounds of violation of the right to equality of people from other states or any other right under the Constitution.

Man with fake govt ID held for trying to siphon off money NEW DELHI, JUL 10 (PTI): A 21-year-old man has been arrested for creating a fake identity card of a Pay and Accounts Officer of the central government to siphon off money from the bank accounts of various ministries through bogus bills, police said. Noor Mohammad, a resident of Moregaon in Assam, was arrested earlier by Delhi police for a similar offence, in which over Rs 3.8 crore was fraudulently withdrawn from the accounts of the Health Ministry, Anyesh Roy, DCP (cyber crime), said. He was released on bail a few weeks ago and he hatched another conspiracy. In the latest case, the Ministry of Labour and Employment complained to Delhi police on June 25 about an e-mail from “Lalit Dagar”, who claimed he was appointed as the new Pay & Accounts Officer of the ministry’s Directorate General of Employment in Chennai. The accused requested the approval of his user-ID on the Public Financial Management System and also mentioned a mobile number and a landline number. But because of the alert officials in the ministry, he was nabbed. “The accused, identified as Noor Mohammad, a resident of Moregaon in Assam, along with his associates, had earlier managed to successfully create and get approved a fake ID of PAO officer in the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and managed to fraudulently create bills and thus, transfer money to the tune of Rs 3.86 crore to multiple bank accounts,” Roy said Tuesday.

Nagaland Post Vol. XXIX NO. 214 Dimapur, THURSDAY, JULY 11, 2019


Power on standby

ower in theory and powerless in practise seems to be the prescription for the suffering power consumers of Nagaland. With arrival of summer, frequent and long duration of power cuts have made summer heat and extreme humidity unbearable. According to reports power fluctuates between 65-70 MW approximately in Dimapur. The Department of Power (DoP) has been facing the same crisis every year and despite efforts to reduce the woes of consumers through various administrative decisions and technical solutions, the situation has not changed. The DoP continues to grapple with its efforts at building adequate capacities in generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure to attain energy security and handling and to achieve 24x7 power for all by 2021. That is now around two years to go but at the current rate of performance, it does not inspire much hope for the harassed consumers. In the past several years, it was almost a regular feature of the department to announce loss amounting to around of over Rs.100 crore annually which was blamed on supposed theft and pilferage. The accumulated total loss from all these has been pegged at around 55% to 60% which is equivalent to 30MW to 40MW out of the total power that the state receives. When the power loss in Nagaland is almost 50% and double the national average, it only calls for serious probe on why this abnormal figure continues to plague power supply and most interestingly, accepted as that for so many years. Inefficiency cannot be allowed to get away under the guise of ‘transmission loss’, when consumers are handed contestable bills owing to improper metering or inefficiency. In some districts, burnt transformers have not been replaced for several weeks and even months. Power engineers also lament that they are faced with acute shortage of field staff and despite several appeals, nothing much has been done. The department’s woes has been compounded by the fact that most of its current equipments such as transformers for transmission and distribution are overloaded and cannot handle the increased capacities. As a result, several transformers have burnt out, causing more problems since the department has no spares and not speak of higher capacity transformers that it should have acquired in anticipation of the situation. The acute shortage of power totally negates the very concept of economic development since business without power means losses. Even sensitive equipments are damaged due to power fluctuations and has caused huge losses to business, especially storage and small units that are wholly dependent on power supply. Generators are meant as stand by but in the prevailing circumstances, they have become the mainstay and the power from the department ,has become the standby. It may be recalled that the Association of Power Engineers Nagaland (APEN) has been raising the issue in public domain in order to make consumer aware about the situation that the department is in. APEN had also warmed of a likely and impending collapse of the power system in Nagaland. All those visions of the state’s planners will be a mirage unless the power situation improves as there cannot be any economic progress in the state.

DailyDevotion The Spiritually Lazy Saint

Let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together… —Hebrews 10:24-25 We are all capable of being spiritually lazy saints. We want to stay off the rough roads of life, and our primary objective is to secure a peaceful retreat from the world. The ideas put forth in these verses from Hebrews 10 are those of stirring up one another and of keeping ourselves together. Both of these require initiative— our willingness to take the first step toward Christ-realization, not the initiative toward self-realization. To live a distant, withdrawn, and secluded life is diametrically opposed to spirituality as Jesus Christ taught it. The true test of our spirituality occurs when we come up against injustice, degradation, ingratitude, and turmoil, all of which have the tendency to make us spiritually lazy. While being tested, we want to use prayer and Bible reading for the purpose of finding a quiet retreat. We use God only for the sake of getting peace and joy. We seek only our enjoyment of Jesus Christ, not a true realization of Him. This is the first step in the wrong direction. All these things we are seeking are simply effects, and yet we try to make them causes. “Yes, I think it is right,” Peter said, “…to stir you up by reminding you…” (2 Peter 1:13). It is a most disturbing thing to be hit squarely in the stomach by someone being used of God to stir us up— someone who is full of spiritual activity. Simple active work and spiritual activity are not the same thing. Active work can actually be the counterfeit of spiritual activity. The real danger in spiritual laziness is that we do not want to be stirred up— all we want to hear about is a spiritual retirement from the world. Yet Jesus Christ never encourages the idea of retirement— He says, “Go and tell My brethren…” (Matthew 28:10).

Wellbeing, disaster and environmental management A


ur wellbeing is codependent largely with our environment for its progressive transitory journey. We cannot disassociate our nature to pioneer nurturing our conditions from optimizing a sustainable fabric–other than to enhance it for bettering our own experiences. There are many factors that come into play once we admittedly acknowledge human growth tracks parallel to our natural conditions; by doing this, we obtain a certain window to avert drastic repercussions during natural disasters. Most epic proportion of natural calamities occurring are dubbed not so much as untimely because they do not follow a seasonal analog and fall short or afar, rather it appears quite abruptly on our seasonal calendar, but the impact it leaves behind in rogue: typhonic, seismic and torrential analogy disrupt the seasonal patterns altogether. Since this anomalies although predictive yet follow asymmetrical tendencies owing to compounds of forces acting on its barely steady potential and kinetic motion, our reciprocal measures for containment of the aftermath trash of casualties should be specifically prompted firsthand accordingly; it must be backed with eclectic sensitization. Disasters of large proportion in our environment are also prone to occur in and from power plants when technical assessment are neglected or miscalculated. Nuclear and hydroelectric power plants that generate power and then supply it to electrical grids for residential and industrial utility have caused some of the violent irretractable dent in our environment since its accidents. Chernobyl nuclear plant and Sayano-Shushenskaya

hydroelectric plant disasters still lingers the grim presence of nuclear radiation and distraught among the victims from the shocking incidence. The following are primary redacted data that indicates our wellbeing is inadvertently challenged by our environment and the ergonomics behind management. Efficiency in micromanaging our engineered natural conditions is not all responsive to textbook ‘crystallized intelligence’ and data, but the key to be formidable in this asset would require ‘fluid intelligence’ to micro-conceptualize the escalation of conditions with contingencies – because ideally it is meant to compact-fully encompass the program. There is a sense of immaturity in our dealings with natural disasters; it doesn’t emerge out as a significant priority to be addressed in political decorum. Honestly, I believe our freedom and prerogative should be fluently exercised to focus on illustrating the graphics of environmental decay and terraforming, and not the other way around. Besides, environmental disasters in the epitome of modern age have accessed divergent routes of paradigms. Aside from the worrying nuclear fallout and escalating global warming, mainstream newsfeed narrative has been bombarded with shift and distortions in the entanglement of quantum environment as speculated in the Mandela Effect. This theory has been circulating on the internet over the past few years quite engagingly. It suggests that the particle physics experiments of CERN is causing our world to shift to another parallel universes. People compare the group memory of their original version of objective

Beware of the dilapidated Nagarjan Bridge


s the road repairing works from 3rd mile to Nagarjan Police point is almost touching to the ending point, plying of vehicles on this route has become more comfortable and faster also for which traffic jam is also increasing day by day totally unmindful by all motorists of the bridge condition. On my query, the traffic police said that all the component i.e, the constituent part of the bridge have caved in and rested on the main column of the bridge hence it wouldn’t further cave in unless something unexpected natural calamity like a strong earthquake occur. Yes, humanly it is a convincing explanation. But one thing we should never forget that the original foundation of this British era bridge must had badly tilted both sides at the time of digging for the foundation of the upcoming bridge now under construction. Besides, heavy rainfall in the past three days, rising water level of all the rivers, there is threat of flash floods, landslides and mud


slides following a heavy to very heavy rains in the coming days in the entire north east as per skymet weather report appearing in all local papers of this morning. In that case, the question arises as to how far the already dilapidated Nagarjan Bridge can withstand the strong current of the Dhansiri River in the event of incessant rains for days and nights as per weather reports. To avert any untoward incident of disastrous nature involving loss of precious human lives (God forbids), it will be in the fitness of the matter for the authority concerned to take immediate action to the extent of inspecting the present condition of the bridge to see its worthiness of taking the present load of daily vehicular fleets and also even to the extent of minimising the present quantum of vehicular traffics on this bridge as a precautionary measure which will also go a long way in reducing the present traffic jams on this route. N.A. Kasar, Kuda Village, Dimapur


indications that seemed to have changed in contrasting details since the late 2000s. We should realize by now that we are not fighting sides against our degrading ecosystem, it gets tedious and futile. Genuinely, our measure to constrain ecological imbalance that is barely holding steady, requires a cohesive effort to synchronize the polarizing effects of human civilization on the environment through technological inputs. We should thus device our voice, sync and amplify our innate cognitive functions to clamour successfully in diagnosing our objective conditions. It is the rogue disasters that sweep off our feet by cutting across any comprehensive solutions at our disposal and make us vulnerable without any fortress to stand our ground. Judging our current ecopolitical pace, we are drifting further from any sustainable projections. We are not harbouring a prodigy of ourselves to elusively address the decadence of our environment. The privilege in precedence is lost and what lies ahead is only for the legacy of antecedent for posterity. Our intuition in abstract and sensory radius should intensify linearly in identifying viable routes; where on which podium the sensible patterns allings and people thereafter cohest, than on the other hand to procreate a veil of bonding induced from fear outside of it, and the projections are impaired and overshadows incongruity. Our well-being should be apprehended from our environment and modified to achieve maximum efficiency made scarce from the lower tier of bare minimum disasters. Samuel Longkumer, Walford, Dimapur

The philosophy of killing

t the very outset let me clarify myself that I wrote this article after much reflection as a Christian. The title itself is very dangerous, however that is happening in the world around. Retaliation, revenge, unforgiveness are the common practices of the people when anything done wrong. There is a phrase which says ‘violence breeds violence’ or ‘an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind’. Hence, the world is full of hatred, violence, selfishness and jealousy. Therefore, why I said so and for this reason I give the title ‘The Philosophy of Killing’. Since the time I began to read newspapers or watching the different news channels in the television not even a single day I found that causality such as killing are not being reported. Murder, bomb blast, arm forces encounter with the militants, suicide and many other causes that is connected with killing. I wrote this article not only in the perspective of Christianity but I am sure that other religion too will not encourage its members to go for killing, of course there may be few individuals who take advantage of killing in the name of the religion which is not supposed to be. When a person is dead, there is no use to take to hospital, however if some life is still within the person there is a hope of bringing the person back to life. Hence, life is precious and we cannot give life to a dead person. Therefore, who are we to take the life of others if cannot give life. It is very sad to say that even among friends whenever we commit a mistake, unknowingly we uttered the sentence ‘I will kill you’. Thus, we take pleasure in revenge or retaliation to any mistake done to us and there is no sign of forgiveness which it is one of the most highly human values. It is very unfortunate more to the highly Christian populated state like Nagaland where murder and killing is being reported now and then in the newspapers. Thus, for the Christians is against the Sixth Commandment which says ‘Thou shalt not Kill’. It is very sad to hear in the

Deforestation, its impact and control

eforestation is the cutting down of trees. It is basically changing the use of land to a different purpose other than the planting of trees. There are many reasons which have led to large levels of deforestation all over the world. One of the major causes is ever growing population of the world. With the growth in population, the need for more land to live has been rising. This has further led to cutting down of trees. Also, with modernisation, there has been a substantial increase in the requirement of land for setting up of industries. This has again contributed to deforestation. Mining is another activity of humans which has led to large-scale deforestation in many areas. The need to build road and rail network in order to increase connectivity to the mines has led to cutting down of trees. This has altered the climatic conditions in these areas. Deforestation has had a huge impact on the environment. Lack of trees has led to less release of water vapour in the air. This has, in turn, led to the alteration of rainfall patterns in different regions. India is a country which is dependent on monsoon rains for agriculture. Frequent droughts and floods caused due to deforestation have affected the lives of many in different parts of the country. Moreover, trees absorb the car-

bon-dioxide from the air and help to purify it. Without trees around us, the presence of harmful gases in the air has been rising. This has also led to global warming which is again a major environmental concern. Also, the ever-rising pollution level, especially in many cities in India is due to vast deforestation only. Additionally, trees bind the soil around them and prevent soil erosion. Deforestation has led to the soil being washed away with winds and rain, making the land unfit for agriculture. Also, trees and forests are the homes to different species of wildlife. With shrinking forests, several of the wildlife has become extinct as they were not able to cope with the changing conditions. Also, there have been increased man and wildlife conflicts in recent times as the animals are forced to venture in the cities in search of food. All these are severe effects of deforestation and need urgent attention by all. New Delhi is the capital of India. There was once a time when Delhi was a beautiful city. But with modernisation, increase in population, deforestation and mining in the nearby Aravalli hills, Delhi has been reduced to a gas chamber. Such is the impact the Delhi has become one of the most polluted cities in the world. What better example can be there to understand what deforestation has

Technology merging onto nature

oes the title seem a bit surprising to us? No, probably, because anyone plugged into the matrix of functional utility is unhesitant—transmissioningin the disgorge from where the nexus originates — nature itself. In today’s events, technology has successfully integrated its network into the mainframe of our civilization’s engine. In quite recent turn, self-driving (automated) cars with high fidelity navigation, radar, odometer, computer vision and sensor—installation is intensely taking uproar in the extra-safety motor-market arena. Technological implants piloting our society is driven with multiple management like a split in the fork. Bionics: Bionics simply being the application of biologically inspired concepts into manufacturing technology, has ushered into a redefining

landmark for the future of prosthetics — [Cyborgs! *Fingers crossed*]. Nano Tech: This technology is the manipulation of matter at a molecular or atomic level. It is gaining rapid traction in this era. The tech is used to detect diseases early, drug delivery and water treatment etc. Genetic Engineering: The moniker explains by itself; it uses technology to modify and re-engineer an organisms’ genes. Recently, NASA has announced that they were successful in synthesizing a DNA like molecule that can store and transmit information. It includes nucleotides present in Earth life – adenine, cytosine, guanine, and thymine – but also four others that mimic the structures of the informational ingredients in regular DNA. This is a breakthrough in the standards of life rejuvenating

news about killing or bomb blast and while there are few individuals who take this act as a pride or a mission completion. Whenever any bomb blast taking place in any places, certain organizationswill be claiming happily about the blast or whenever shooting encounter taking place between the arm forces and the militants, the different news will be reported about the achievement of the arm forces in killing the militants. This is what happening in the society and for that reason I give the title ‘The Philosophy of Killing’ which is meant for either side. Let us not forget that if militants killed the people through bomb blast or any other means of killing the victims will also have people who mourn of their death, similarly when the arm forces killed the militants in the shooting encounter or through another any other means of killing they too have people to mourn of their death. Looking on both perspectives it makes me to think and ponder what the philosophy of killing is? When the common people are killed the society won’t be happy with the killing and when the militants are killed I do not think the family members of the victims are happy too. Therefore, it is vice versa. As a result, the act of killing is not acceptable in the society whether it is for punishment or for acquiring power. For this reason, many countries in the world ban of capital punishment to the criminals. Just imagine if all have the mentality of peaceful coexistence, the world will be of different one. Lastly, I wrote this article not to attack or insult any group or individual, however it is my personal feeling to the society on the concept of Killing which many will be happy of the enemy is killed why on the other side many others will be mourning of the death. It is very sad that people take pleasure and contented when the enemy is killed and this is what we see even in the movies. Therefore let us follow the philosophy of Lord Mahavira ‘Live and Let Live’. Aiborlang Nongsiej, (

on conditions alien to earth. Artificial Intelligence: A modern AI like Sophia, developed by Hanson Robotics, is a humanoid robot that uses ‘fluid intelligence’ to interface. Unlike older model of AI that had ‘crystallized intelligence’ of raw data (1s and 0s number configuration) to compute within the algorithm, the newer models can recognise fresh inputs and carry its intelligence of actual compression to generalize the interface. Technology has made our lives effortless and has embedded in our social fabric as a modem to increase our networking. We have at our hands today to log into any scientific research and copypaste materials after “slightly redaction” and use it for our assignments or projects [I would therefore suggests specifically the students to inculcate comprehending the

subject as well!]. Due to the over–the–top transparency of accessible information, except for core fundamental subjects like Quantum Physics [let me reiterate: comprehension dear students—or your paper would be invaluable as there are many layers of research that point “nay” — humour aside — it could be confusing and a mute effort, unless the relevant topical issue is referenced in your paper, in QM], technology has helped crack the code of nature [few exceptions on the behaviour of quantum wave function, edge of the universe and discovery of more fundamental quantum particles, and few other yappity yap yappings - LOL!], and has sourced itself out to be the most innovative—cuttingedge corner of our walls, and it continues to advance at a staggering rate. Thomas Chang

led us to? There are many ways in which we can reduce deforestation. We must protect our forests. Moreover, we must mark adequate land for our farming needs. There are some laws already in place which prohibit people from unnecessary felling of trees. What needs to be done is the proper execution of the rules so that everyone abides by it. Also, stricter punishments need to be in place for violators so as to deter other people from disobeying the laws. Alternatively, people need to ensure that for every tree felled, equal numbers of trees are planted so that the balance of nature can be maintained. Summarily, it has to be a collective duty of all and just the governments alone, if we really need to reduce deforestation. It is true that we all need space to live. With the ever-growing population and urbanisation, there has been more than ever need to cut trees and make space. However, we must realise that it is not possible for us to live without having trees around us. Trees bring so many benefits such as giving us oxygen, utilising the harmful carbon dioxide and so many products we need in our daily lives. Without trees around us, there would be no life on the earth. We should all do the needful to protect trees and reduce deforestation. (Team The WisdomPost & Sophia)

The bitter truth

One fateful evening I took a cab from Dimapur via Kohima and to my utter surprise what I found out was that the cab driver (Naga) was educating the non local passenger about the terms and condition of paying a sum of 200 rupees in the Chumu checkpoint perhaps to save himself from detention as he didn’t have the license. On reaching the checkpoint as usual checking was conducted and on finding the absence of his license, the police started yelling at him asking him to get down from the cab. In the midst of the drama, the innocent excuse of the driver melt down the anger of the police by saying that the non local guy is not an illegal immigrant but works as a labourer in Kohima hence, pleading the “uniform man” to show mercy on his behalf. Eventually as the saying goes, “Money is the root of all Evil”, the latter made advances towards the window to grab hold of the fixed amount of 200 rupees by deviating from his so called “uniform duty” for his selfish gain.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi listens to a party worker during his visit to Amethi, Wednesday. (PTI)

AMETHI (UP), JUL 10 (PTI): On his first visit here after losing the Lok Sabha seat, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi Wednesday attributed his defeat to local leaders staying away from the people and assured he will not abandon the constituency, party functionaries said. “I will not leave Amethi. It is my home and family,” former state Youth Congress chief Nadeem Ashraf Jayasi quoted Gandhi as saying at a meeting. “The development of Amethi will not be hampered. I am the MP from Wayanad but my ties with Amethi are three decades old. I will fight for Amethi in Delhi,” Gandhi reportedly

NEW DELHI, JUL 10 (PTI): To combat rising cases of child sex abuse, the Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved amendments to strengthen the POCSO Act by including death penalty for aggravated sexual assault on children, besides providing stringent punishments for other crimes against minors, officials said. The proposed changes in the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act also provide for fines and imprisonment to curb child pornography. The modification in the law will address the need for stringent measures against rising trend of child sex abuse in the country and combat the menace of relatively new kind of crimes, the government said, stressing that the strong penal provisions will act as a de-

India leads world in child sexual abuse

Shanavas emphasised that the campaign against child sexual abuse should reach the remotest corners of the State, adding that pamphlets and brochures should be printed in local dialects to make the villagers understand better about the gravity of the crime. They should be taught to realise that the issue was too serious and could not be settled by paying fines with pigs or hens alone, he added. “Else, the heinous crime will continue to recur,” he warned. The principal director also appealed to the church leaders to raise this issue in the church platform and educate the children, while assuring to extend all possible support from the department. Speaking on the occasion, Nagaland State

Legal Services Authority (NSLSA) member secretary Longshithung Ezung remarked that incidences of child abuse in the State were growing at an alarming rate. He said Childline Dimapur, after its establishment in 2011, had intervened in 1,457 cases pertaining to various “child protection risk areas”, including abuse, trafficking, child labour, missing, emotional support and guidance and various other distress situations experienced by children. Mentioning that exploitation of children for domestic work was a matter of great concern, Ezung said children working in various homes had to undergo all kinds of abuses and rights violations due to ignorance of the children and their families. He said the only way to prevent these abusive incidents was

to create awareness about the rights of the child. As children were the most vulnerable group in the society, he said the Legal Services Authorities Act, 1987 had enlisted children as “Persons Entitled to Free Legal Services”. And when a child was abused, NSLSA member secretary said it was entitled to receive compensation under the Nagaland Victim Compensation Scheme, 2012 like Rs 2,00,000 for loss of life, Rs 1,00,000 for rape, Rs 50,000 for rehabilitation, Rs 1,00,000 for trafficking and Rs 20,000 for injury.

Po i n t i n g o u t t h a t NSLSA alone could not prevent incidents of child abuse, he appealed to everyone to take the responsibility with all seriousness. In her brief address, Nagaland Commission for Protection of Child Rights chairperson N Awan Konyak thanked WVI, social welfare department, Childline, NGOs from different districts and all the stakeholders involved for their unwavering effort to end child sexual abuse in the State. She also administered a pledge to the gathering to end child sexual abuse.

The amendment is aimed at establishing clarity regarding the aspects of child abuse and punishment thereof,” it said. The government, in a statement, said the amendments in Section-2, 4, 5, 6, 9, 14, 15, 34,42 and 45 of the POCSO Act, 2012 are being made to address the aspects of child sexual abuse in an appropriate manner. “Section-4, 5 and 6 are proposed to be amended to provide option of stringent punishment, including death penalty, for committing sexual assault and aggravated penetrative sexual assault crime on a child to protect the children from sexual abuse,” it said.

KO L K AT A , J U L 1 0 (PTI): Bengali film actor Rituparna Sengupta has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate next week in connection with the investigation into the Rose Valley ponzi scam, a day after it summoned superstar Prosenjit Chatterjee in the same case. According to the sources, Sengupta allegedly accompanied Rose Valley group chairman Gautam Kundu on several foreign trips and helped him in the sale and production of films. “We have summoned actor Rituparna Sengupta in connection with the Rose Valley scam. She has been asked to appear next week,” ED sources told PTI. Phone calls made to Sengupta for her reaction went unanswered. Chatterjee, meanwhile, had been asked to depose before the ED officials at the CGO Complex office in Salt Lake on July 19. The Tollywood actor’s statement will be recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The sources said the agency wanted to question Chatterjee about Rs 2.75 crore received by his company, Idea Locations and Production Pvt Ltd, from the Rose Valley group between 2010 and 2011. Of

CHANDIGARH, JUL 10 (PTI): Punjab State Commission for Women chairperson Manisha Gulati Wednesday claimed she has been receiving threat calls and abusive messages on social media after she lodged a complaint against rapper Honey Singh for using lewd lyrics in his song. Honey Singh and music producer Bhushan Kumar have been booked by the Punjab Police on the charge of using vulgar lyrics in a song, “Makhna”. “I have been receiving threat calls and getting abusive messages on my Twitter handle for lodging

a complaint against Yo Yo Honey Singh,” Gulati told reporters here. “I am not scared of anyone. I will continue to raise my voice on such issues,” she said. Gulati said she had reported the matter to police for further action. Gulati had earlier written to the state home secretary, the Punjab director general of police and the inspector general of police (crime), demanding appropriate action against the singer for using objectionable words in the song. Honey Singh has been booked under Sections 294 (punishment for obscene


this, Chatterjee is suspected to have received about Rs 23.5 lakh. The probe agency wants to understand the purpose of these funds, they claimed. Chatterjee has acted in several films produced and distributed by the Rose Valley, notable among them being ‘Moner Manush’ and ‘Hangover’. ‘Moner Manush’ had won the award for ‘Best Feature Film on National Integration’ at the 58th National Film Awards. A probe by the agency has revealed that Rose Valley, on papers, undervalued the film’s production cost and used depositors’ money to fund ‘Hangover’, the ED sources added. Earlier this year, noted Bengal film producer Shrikant Mohta was arrested and sent to jail in the course of investigation into the

song and acts) and 509 (punishment for word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the IPC. Police said the rapper had also been booked under Section 67 (punishment for publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form) of the Information Technology Act, 2000, and relevant section of the Indecent Representation of

Women (Prohibition) Act, 1986, at Mohali in Punjab. Gulati said she had also urged police to arrest Honey Singh as early as possible. “It is a lesson for singers like Honey Singh who use objectionable words against women,” she said, adding that the women panel would now keep a watch on other singers as well to ensure that vulgar lyrics did not find their way to songs.

KO L K AT A , J U L 1 0 (IANS): A SpiceJet trainee technician died a horrific death early on Wednesday when he got stuck in between hydraulic door flaps while carrying out maintenance work on an aircraft at the NSCBI airport here, officials said. The incident occurred around 1.45 a.m. and the technician was identified as Rohit Bhushan Pandey. “He was doing maintenance work on a Q400 aircraft, and accidentally the landing gear door closed on him. He died on the spot,” a highly-placed airport official told IANS. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation will carry out an inquiry into the incident, the official said. A SpiceJet spokesperson said Pandey was working in the right hand main landing gear wheel well area of the aircraft, which was parked in bay no. 32 when the accident took place. “Inadvertently, the main landing gear hydraulic door closed and he got stuck in between the hydraulic door flaps. The doors had to be broken to rescue Pandey but he was declared dead,” the spokesperson said. An “unnatural death” case has been lodged at the Kolkata Airport police station, while police and forensic teams visited the site.

scam. The ED had on Monday interrogated senior Trinamool Congress leader Madan Mitra in connection with the ponzi scam. Mitra, who was the then state transport minister, was arrested in 2014 by the Central Bureau of Investigation for his alleged connection with the Saradha ponzi scam. He served a jail term of over 21 months before getting bail. According to ED estimates, the Rose Valley scandal is at least five times the Saradha scam. The agency had in 2015 arrested its chairman Gautam Kundu and attached his assets worth Rs 2,300 crore, including hotels and resorts. The group had reportedly floated 27 companies to allegedly run the chit fund operations. The ED has alleged that the scheme floated by the group promised investors in various states inflated returns between eight and 27 per cent. The company had allegedly pledged astronomical returns to depositors on land and assets, and bookings done in the real estate sector. It has also been accused of making “cross investments” in its various sister firms to suppress its liabilities towards investors.

told party workers. In a stunning poll result, Union minister Smriti Irani defeated Gandhi in his bastion by over 55,000 votes in the recent elections. Before the 2019 defeat, Gandhi had represented Amethi since the 2004 general election. District Congress committee member Narendra Mishra said Gandhi appreciated the hard work by party workers. According to him, Gandhi said the workers did a lot during the campaign but local leaders remained away from the people, leading to his defeat. Many workers said the Congress was weak in the entire district and the party campaign lacked direction,

according to the participants. They alleged that some party men worked with the BJP in the constituency. They also unanimously demanded that Gandhi should withdraw his resignation from the party president’s post. The Congress leader has announced his resignation while taking responsibility for the drubbing the party received in the Lok Sabha elections. In Amethi, Gandhi’s representative Chandrakant Dubey and Congress district president Yogendra Mishra have resigned. The meeting with party workers, including booth presidents from five assembly segments -- Salon, Amethi, Gauriganj, Jagdishpur and Tiloi - lasted barely 50 minutes. Gandhi then left for two villages in Chhatoh block on the way to Lucknow, from where he flew back to Delhi. On reaching Amethi, the Congress leader first visited the Gauriganj house of his party’s Tiloi assembly in-charge Mata Prasad Vaish to offer condolences over the death of a relative on June 25. Later, he attended the review meeting with party office-bearers at Nirmala Devi Educational Institute in Gauriganj.

Globally, spot gold was trading lower at USD 1,391.39 an ounce, while silver was down at USD 15.07 per ounce in New York. “Gold prices (globally) traded under pressure after US and China restarted trade talks on Tuesday.

In the national capital, gold of 99.9 per cent and 99.5 per cent purity held flat at Rs Rs 34,870 per 10 gram and Rs 34,700 per 10 gram, respectively.

Mumbai, Jul 10 (PTI): The rupee declined by 7 paise to close at 68.58 against the US dollar Wednesday, pressured by persistent foreign fund outflows and firming crude oil prices. A weak trend at the domestic equity markets and global trade tensions also kept sentiment subdued, traders said. At the interbank foreign exchange market, the domestic unit opened weak at 68.61 and soon slipped to hit the day’s low of 68.67. However, it pared some losses to touch a high of 68.48, before finally closing at 68.58, showing a loss of 7 paise over its previous close. The rupee had rebounded by 15 paise to close at 68.51 against the greenback Tuesday on fag-end selling of the US currency by banks and importers in line with a late recovery in domestic equities. “Rupee has been consolidating in the range of 68.50 and 69.20 for last five sessions.

New Delhi, Jul 10 (IANS): Seeking to curb the menace of ponzi schemes, the Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Wednesday gave its approval to the Banning of Unregulated Deposit Schemes Bill, 2019. The proposed law would address the issue of illicit deposit-taking activities, as it provides for strict action against such activities. “The Bill will help tackle the menace of illicit deposit-taking activities in the country which, at present, are exploiting regulatory gaps and lack of strict administrative measures to dupe poor and gullible people of their hard-earned savings,” an official statement said after the Cabinet meeting. The new Bill will replace the Ordinance promulgated in February this year which will otherwise cease to operate after six weeks of re-assembling of the Parliament.

However, the AEOI would only related to accounts that are officially in the name of Indian residents and they might include those used for business and other genuine purposes. In an explanatory dossier on AEOI, the FDF said if a taxpayer in country A (India) has a bank account in Switzerland, the bank would disclose the financial account data to the Swiss authorities, which would automatically forward the information to the tax authorities in the country A (India). The Indian authority would thus be able to examine the foreign financial account data and tax necessary action, if required, against the taxpayer. The information would be grouped into three broad categories of identification, account and financial details.


account numbers, credit balance and all kinds of financial income for each Indian client of every Swiss financial institution. The first set in September would be followed by further despatches on a yearly basis, according to Switzerland’s Federal Department of Finance (FDF). This would be in addition to details already being shared by Switzerland with India for nearly 100 Indian entities, including

dentiality provisions. Explaining the AEOI with India, which has come into force from January 1, 2018, the FDF said Switzerland, as a global wealth management hub, is committed to contributing to the integrity of the international financial system and to a level playing field. “Switzerland applies the international transparency standards and therefore actively supports India in its fight against tax fraud and evasion,” it said. Under the AEOI framework, detailed financial information on all Indian residents that have an account maintained by a Swiss financial institution in 2018 will be provided for the first time to the Indian tax authorities in September 2019 and on a yearly basis thereafter. The information would include accounts that were closed during 2018, it said. It is feared many Indians might have closed their accounts after a global crackdown on black money led to Switzerland buckling


New Delhi/Berne, Jul 10 (PTI): India’s fight against suspected black money stashed abroad will get a major boost this September in the form of first set of detailed financial information about all Indians having Swiss bank accounts, including those closed since last year. The details that Switzerland would share with Indian tax authorities under the Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) framework would include

individuals and enterprises, on submission of prima facie evidence of their financial wrongdoings, under a bilateral pact for administrative assistance on tax matters. Minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedhran also said in written reply to a Lok Sabha question on Wednesday that India will start receiving information on automatic basis from September about financial accounts held in Switzerland by Indian residents. Besides, the IndiaSwitzerland tax treaty facilitates receipt of information on request basis for cases under investigation, he said. “The information received on request or on automatic basis may include information about persons allegedly involved in corruption,” the minister said.

US blacklists Hezbollah lawmakers for first time

Huawei builds first-ever UK Ambassador quits after spat with Trump 5G network in Europe

Monaco will become the world’s first full 5G Country.

The US government imposed sanctions on Hezbollah MP Mohamed Raad, security official Wafiq Safa and Hezbollah MP Amin Sherri. EPA Washington, Jul 10 (AFP): The US Treasury placed two Hezbollah members of Lebanon’s parliament on its sanctions blacklist on Tuesday -- the first time Washington has taken aim at the Iran-allied group’s elected politicians. Stepping up its effort to build global pressure on the powerful Lebanese Shiite movement, the Treasury named MPs Amin Sherri and Muhammad Hasan Raad to a terrorrelated blacklist, saying that Hezbollah uses its parliamentary power to advance violent activities. Also placed on the blacklist was Wafiq Safa, a top Hezbollah official close to the movement’s Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the US targeted three officials “who leverage their positions to facilitate Hezbollah and the Iranian regime’s malign efforts to undermine Lebanese sovereignty.” “Any distinction between Hezbollah’s political

Dawood operates from ‘safe haven’: India to UNSC

and military wings is artificial,” he said. “We call on our allies and partners to designate Hezbollah in its entirety as a terrorist organization.” Pompeo tied the action to the US “maximum pressure” campaign against Iran and its “proxies” in the Middle East, including Hezbollah, which Washington has officially designated a “terrorist group.” However, Washington stopped short of imposing similar sanctions on Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, which Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said were forthcoming in late June. A senior administration official who insisted on anonymity Tuesday would not confirm any plan to blacklist Zarif, who was crucial in achieving the landmark 2015 nuclear deal. “We are obviously exploring... various avenues for additional sanctions on Tehran. Obviously Foreign Minister Zarif is a figure of key interest,” she said.

It is the first time the US Treasury has placed Hezbollah lawmakers on its blacklist, which forbids US individuals and businesses with a US branch -- including leading international banks -- from doing business with those sanctioned. With the electoral backing of many Lebanese Shiites, Hezbollah won 13 seats out of 128 in the May 6, 2018 general election. It joined a coalition government formed on January 31, gaining control of three ministries. But Washington says it will not regard the group’s political and military activities as separate from one another. “It is time, we believe, for other nations around the world to recognize that there is no distinction between Hezbollah’s political and military wing,” the senior US administration official said. “To any member of Hezbollah considering running for office, know that you will not be able to hide beneath the cover of political office,” she said.


Paris, Jul 10 (IANS): Chinese tech giant Huawei has built next-generation 5G mobile phone network in Monaco, making the sovereign city-state in the French Rivera the first European country to be fully covered by 5G. “5G world premiere: Monaco Telecom first full 5G country! Ultra-highspeed recorded at 1.4Gbps. 5G included in all mobile packages,” Xavier Niel, the operator’s owner wrote on a Twitter message late on Tuesday. Frederic Genta, Monaco interdepartmental delegate in-charge of the digital transition, hailed “a paradigm change” thanks to 5G mobile phone network based on technology from the Chinese firm Huawei, Xinhua news agency reported on Wednesday. “5G is the promise of a better quality of life for all and exceptional opportunities. It will allow to adapt life to our needs,” he said. For Huawei Vice President Guo Ping, deploying the new network in Monaco is a major opportunity despite the small size of territory covered. “Monaco is a small territory... which allows us to make a shop window in


a number of areas... and can serve as a model for other operators and states,” Guo was quoted as saying by local media.

London, Jul 10 (IANS): The British Ambassador to the US, Sir Kim Darroch, on Wednesday announced his resignation following a diplomatic spat over a leaked e-mail in which he criticized Donald Trump, said Foreign Office. Over the last two days, Trump took aim at Darroch in a series of Twitter tirades calling him a “stupid guy” and a “pompous fool” after UK media published a confidential memo in which the British diplomat described the President’s Administration “uniquely dysfunctional”, reported Efe news. In a letter, Darroch wrote: “Since the leak of official documents from

Dawood Ibrahim (File)

United Nations, Jul 10 (PTI): Pakistan-based underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s criminal syndicate has mutated into a terrorist network, India has said as it sought the US Security Council’s “focussed attention” to address the real threats posed by the D-Company, the JeM and the LeT. Terrorist organisations are increasingly involved in lucrative criminal activities such as trading in natural resources and human trafficking to raise funds, India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Syed Akbaruddin said on Tuesday. Similarly, criminal groups are joining hands with terrorists and are providing services such as counterfeiting, illicit financing, arms dealing, drug trafficking and smuggling terrorists across borders, he said at the Security Council debate on ‘Threats to International Peace and Security: Linkages between International Terrorism and Organised Crime’. “In our own region, we have seen the mutation of Dawood Ibrahim’s criminal syndicate into a terrorist network known as the D-Company. “The D-Company’s illegitimate economic activities may be little known outside our region, but for us, such activities as gold smuggling, counterfeit currency, as well as arms and drug trafficking from a safe haven that declines to acknowledge even his existence, are a real and present danger,” Akbaruddin said.

out my role as I would like. “Although my posting is not due to end until the end of this year, I believe in the current circumstances the responsible course is to allow the appointment of a new ambassador. “I am grateful to all those in the UK and the US, who have offered their support during this difficult few days. This has brought home to me the depth of friendship and close ties between our two countries. I have been deeply touched.” Sir Simon McDonald, Permanent Under Secretary at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, said he accepted Darroch’s resignation with “deep personal regret”.

Astonishing facts about Tattoos L

ter deep in the skin to the dermis. 23% of people regret their tattoos, with the biggest regret being a tattooed name. Women are twice as likely to get their tattoos removed than men. One of the oldest recorded tattoo ink recipes consists of Egyptian pine bark, corroded bronze, vinegar, vitriol, leek juice and insect eggs. The word “tattoo” is one of the most misspelled words in the English language. It is commonly spelled as “tatoo.”

Gregory Paul McLaren holds the Guinness World Record for being the most tattooed person. He is 99.9% covered, including the inside of his eyelids, mouth, and ears. When having a tattoo laser removed, black is the easiest color to remove because it absorbs more laser waves, while green and yellow are the most difficult to remove. Tattooing was illegal in South Carolina until 2004. Until 2006, it was illegal to get a tattoo in Oklahoma. Tattooing is illegal in three countries: Iran, Tur-

key, and the United Arab Emirates. When starting an apprenticeship, aspiring tattoo artist usually practice on fruit. Grapefruit, oranges, and lemons are the closest texture to human skin. Unsanitar y tattooing practices can transmit diseases such as syphilis, hepatitis B and HIV; however, there has yet to be an actual case of HIV being transmitted via a tattoo application. The part of the body tattooed the most among women, is the ankle area. Among men, the most common spot is the arm. The most expensive tattoo in the world costs $924,000. It is done with half a carat diamonds encrusted into the skin instead of ink. No one has ever had it done. New Zealanders are the most tattooed people in the world. This is mostly due to the island’s Mãori who still get traditional Polynesian tattoos. (The Factsite)

Kardashian denies removing ribs to fit Met Gala dress


im Kardashian is setting the record straight. Back in May, the reality star turned heads when she appeared at the 2019 Met Gala, wearing a tight, body-hugging Thierry Mugler mini dress. The fact Kardashian was even able to fit into the dress stunned people on social media, leading some to theorize she may have removed ribs to pull off the look. In a recent interview with WSJ. Magazine, Kardashian was confused by the theory, simply responding, “I don’t even know if that’s possible.” Although she didn’t have any ribs taken out, Kardashian did admit fitting into the dress was a very painful ordeal. The article says the star had to take breathing lessons in order to wear the outfit and that it took a physical toll on her body. “I have never felt pain like that in my life,” Kardashian confessed. “I’ll have to show you pictures of the aftermath when I took it

mmy-winning and Oscar-nominated actor Rip Torn has died at the age of 88, his publicist has confirmed. The actor, known for his work in the Men in Black series and The Larry Sanders Show, passed away on Tuesday afternoon, according to the Associated Press. His wife, Amy Wright, and daughters Katie Torn and Angelica Page were by his side. No cause of death was given. The versatile actor, who is the cousin of film icon Sissy Spacek, first kicked off his storied career in the 50s with dark, dramatic performances. After a brief mid-career slump in the late-80s, with a disastrous directorial debut with 1988’s The Telephone, Torn would come back to prominence in the 90s after a pivot to comedic roles. These included Agent Zed in the Men in Black series, his Emmy-winning role as the hot-tempered Artie on the 1992 HBO sitcom The Larry Sanders Show, and as the voice of Zeus in Disney’s 1997 animated adaptation of Hercules.

petition to demand the release of rapper A$AP Rocky from a Swedish prison has so attracted nearly 300,000 signatures. The rapper and two of his associates were arrested by Swedish authorities last week following allegations that they assaulted a man, and they are currently being held in Stockholm on pre-trial detention for two weeks. Now, a petition launched by his hip-hop collective, ASAP Mob, is calling for his release, alleging he has been denied the right to fair legal representation and is being held in “inhumane conditions”. While Swedish authorities have denied the claims, the petition has attracted the signatures of rappers including Post Malone, Lil Yachty, Miguel and ASAP Ferg. On Wednesday morning, more than 293,000 people had signed the plea. Odd Future founder Tyler, The Creator previously said that he would boycott Sweden as a result of

The petition specifically claims that ASAP and three associates were acting in self-defence when they were involved in a fight, claiming they were followed through the streets of Stockholm and harassed. It states: “We are surprised that something like this could happen in Sweden to people who were minding their business and forced to defend themselves from a group of assailants. “This should be about justice.

ctress Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s son Viaan recently appeared in a video where the six-year-old was seen expressing his love for the WWE superstars, particularly John Cena. Answering questions about the sport, diehard fan Viaan flaunted his knowledge of WWE wrestling. It is, however, Cena who actually makes the video interesting. In the end, the star kid gets a special message from Cena. “Hey Viaan, this is your buddy John Cena. I saw your video and your

off -- the indentations on my back and my stomach.” In a behind-the-scenes Vogue video posted shortly after the event, it was revealed that Kardashian told those at the Gala her outfit made it difficult for her to sit down and forbade her from using the restroom. “Anna, if I don’t sit down for dinner, now you know why,” she laughed, referring to Vogue editor Anna Wintour. Kardashian attempted to sit with the bodysuit on for Vogue’s cameras. “I can only like half-sit,” she said in the video. “I won’t be able to pee for about four hours,” Kardashian later told the Vogue camera people. “So we’re coming up with a plan of what we do in case of an emergency.” K a r d a s h i a n’s e ye catching outfit was a stark contrast to her husband Kanye West’s look at the Gala, which simply consisted of a black Dickies jacket and pants, along with his brand of Yeezy combat boots.

ove them or hate them, there’s no denying that tattoos have a fascinating history. It is believed tattooing stemmed a form of healing similar to acupuncture, and evolved into the art form it is today. When it was introduced into the Western world, it was mainly popular among sailors, but gained popularity in the 1970’s. No longer a form of rebellion, the art of tattooing has become more widely accepted than ever. The oldest known tattooed human skin to date is found on the body of Ötzi the Iceman, who was estimated between 3370 and 3100 BC. His body was found in the Alps and had 61 tattoos of simple dots and lines using carbon ink. In 1891, the first electric tattoo machine was invented and patented by Samuel O’Reilly. A tattoo gun can puncture the skin between 50 and 3,000 times per minute, penetrating the skin about one millime-

Djokovic reaches Wimbledon semifinals in the Serb’s opening service game and forging two break points in his second, before breaking in his fourth with dominant play from the baseline. But that was the last thing that went the Belgian’s way as Djokovic sent over a beautiful drop shot to break back immediately and then never looked back, rattling off 10 games in a row. Before this match Djokovic had averaged less than two hours on court per match and he kept that up with this victory in one hour 57 minutes, also dropping the fewest games in his campaign so far. After absorbing the Novak Djokovic celebrates defeating David Goffin during a men’s quarterfinal match early pressure from Gofin London, Wednesday.(AP/PTI) Lo n d o n, J u l 1 0 (Agencies): Defending champion Novak Djokovic snuffed out a promising start by David Goffin to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals. The Serbian world number one went a break down in the first set to the speedy Belgian before turning it round in clinical fashion to win 6-4 6-0 6-2. Djokovic, 32, will face

Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut or Argentina’s Guido Pella for a place in Sunday’s final. The top seed is chasing a fifth Wimbledon crown and 16th Grand Slam. “He started well,” Djokovic told BBC television. “He was dictating the play from the baseline. “Things could have gone a different way - who knows what the match

would have looked like if I had lost the first set - but I was very pleased with the second and third.” Djokovic had lost to world number 23 Goffin in their previous meeting two years ago in Monte Carlo and so it was no surprise that the Belgian came out fired up for a repeat. The 28-year-old put early pressure on Djokovic, taking him to deuce

fin, who had been seeking to reach a first Grand Slam semi-final, Djokovic took control of every aspect of the match. He took the second set with an emphatic smash and wrapped up victory when Goffin sent a backhand wide, reaching his ninth Wimbledon semifinal. “I had a tough match in the third round,” Djokovic said, referring to his four-set win over Hubert Hurkacz. “Other than that, I’ve won in straight sets and played really well throughout the tournament. “It’s exactly what I wanted and hopefully I can go in the right direction in the semis as well.”

Murray and Serena run in the mixed doubles ends

Andy Murray and Serena Williams’ memorable Wimbledon run is over after they lost to top seeds Bruno Soares and Nicole Melichar in the mixed doubles. Britain’s Murray, 32, and American Williams, 37, have illuminated SW19 with their blockbuster partnership but came unstuck in a 6-3 4-6 6-2 defeat. Defeat means the Scot’s Wimbledon return - almost six months after serious hip surgery - is over. Now he must decide the next step as he ultimately hopes to play singles again. On Tuesday, Murray said playing singles at the US Open in September looks “pretty unlikely” as he continues to take his recovery cautiously.

11 Neymar can leave Chhetri, Ashalata named PSG for right AIFF Players of Year offer: Leonardo Lo n d o n, J u l 1 0 (Agencies): Neymar can leave Paris St-Germain “if there is an offer that suits everyone”, says sporting director Leonardo. According to BBC, the Brazil forward failed to turn up for the first day of pre-season training on Monday and PSG say they will take “appropriate action”. The 27-year-old has been linked with a move back to former club Barcelona. Leonardo added that the French champions had “not received any offers” for Neymar but there had been “very superficial contacts” with Barcelona. Neymar joined PSG from Barcelona for a world record 222m euros (£200m) in August 2017. Asked if the player had asked to leave the club, Leonardo - speaking to La Parisien - said: “It’s clear to everyone. But in football, you say one thing today and tomorrow another. It’s amazing but it’s like that. “Yes [I have spoken to Neymar]. I do not want to tell all the details of the conversation.

Have worked out plan to beat Snider, Handscomb to make WC Stage set for Neymar Jr’s Five World Final says Vijender ahead of US debut debut against England

Vijender Singh

New York, Jul 10 (PTI): Gearing up for his debut in the US professional circuit, Indian boxing star Vijender Singh Wednesday said he has worked out all possible strategies to beat his rival Mike Snider, who has promised to make it a rough clash on Saturday. Vijender, unbeaten in his 10-fight professional career so far, landed in the city with his British trainer Lee Beard on Sunday. This will be the Haryana-boxer’s first bout in over a year. ”...we are giving final touches to our preparation. I have watched few fights

of Mike Snider and have worked out all possible strategies with my coaches,” said India’s first Olympic medallist in boxing. “Boxers always believe in big talks ahead of their fight but I believe in hard work and my punches will prove my hard work in the ring on July 13. I am fully confident of a winning start (in the US),” he added. The eight-round contest between Vijender Singh and Mike Snider will happen at Prudential Centre in Newark, New Jersey on the undercard of American Boxing star Shakur Stevenson vs Franklin Manzanilla. The 38-year-old Snider who holds an overall record of 13-5-3 and has stopped eight of his opponents inside the distance, is confident of his win. “This fight means a lot to me. It’ll be a fun fight. It’s a great opportunity against a solid opponent like Vijender Singh,” he said. “I’ve seen several of his fights, so I know what he’ll bring. I want to make it a rough fight. I want to make it an ugly fight, bring heavy shots with me, and not leave it in the hands of the judges. I am sure this will be the toughest fight of his career so far,” he added. Snider said he is happy to start as the underdog against Vijender. “I love winning fights people say I can’t win. I always love proving people wrong. I’ve been doing that my whole. I had a rough life growing up. When people say I can’t do something, it’s a smack in the face. I believe I can do anything,” he said. The 33-year old Vijender has fetched seven knockout wins so far in his pro career which started in England.

Birmingham, Jul 10 (IANS): Wicketkeeperbatsman Peter Handscomb will make his World Cup debut when Australia take on England in the second semi-final on Thursday at Edgbaston, head coach Justin Langer has confirmed. The right-hander was called as a replacement for Shaun Marsh, who fractured his forearm after being struck in the nets last week. Handscomb was not included in Australia’s original squad despite featuring in the recent series wins over Pakistan and India. He had featured in all of Australia’s 13 ODIs though leading into the World Cup before being replaced by Steve Smith. “I’ll tell you the truth. Peter Handscomb will definitely play, 100 per cent,” the official website of the cricket World Cup quoted Langer as saying. “He deserves it, he was really stiff not to be on this tour. He was so unlucky not to be in the initial squad after what

he’d done to help us get to that point. “He’s in good form, he played well for Australia A, he gives us nice balance through that middle order, he’s got great temperament, he plays spin well and he’s on top of his game. So he’ll definitely play,” he added. M e a n w h i l e, a l l rounder Marcus Stoinis -- who had suffered from a side strain during Australia’s last league game against South Africa -- has been declared fit to play in the semi-final. “He looks good,” said Langer after Australia hit the nets on Tuesday. “It was a very good net session actually, there was a bit of heat again, it was very competitive and that always brings the best out in Stoin(is). He did a good job today and he’s fit to go.” Matthew Wade is also set to join Australia’s squad in place of Usman Khawaja, who suffered a hamstring strain and was ruled out of the tournament.

Battle of nerves as Eng face Aus in semifinal

Eoin Morgan

Birmingham, Jul 10 (IANS): They came into the tournament as favourites, but Englands poor show in the middle of the group stages saw them almost being ousted from the 2019 World Cup. But the hosts got their act right and won their last two games against India and New Zealand to qualify for the semi-finals of the showpiece event. And now, they are set to take on arch-rivals Australia at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground on Thursday. A resurgent Australian outfit -- under the able K Y M C

Aaron Finch

leadership of Aaron Finch -- has taken the showpiece event by storm and has once again shown an affinity to rise to the challenge on the big stage. The first team to qualify for the knockouts, Australia lost their last group game against South Africa which saw them finish second on the points table, otherwise they looked set to be finishing as leaders after the group stage. However, that will act as motivation for the Australians as they are keen to show the world that the Sandpaper Gate fiasco is a

thing of the past and this team is just as good as those that won the showpiece event five times over the years. For the Englishmen, it is more about staying true to the tag of favourites and not crumbling under the pressure of expectations. They have a talented bunch of players, but consistency has been a worry for them in this tournament. However, with Jason Roy back at the top of the innings, things are looking in control once again for the hosts. Interestingly, hard-hitting batsman Jos Buttler’s

form would definitely be a worry for the Englishmen as he is yet to light up the tournament. Yes, he has scored a century, but the swashbuckling batsman is expected to do a lot more than score just 253 runs. Ben Stokes, on the other hand, has been brilliant coming in lower down the order. He has scored 381 runs with four fifties. But the stars of the show have been Test skipper Joe Root and opener Jonny Bairstow. While Root is the highest scorer in the team with 500 runs (two centuries and three fifties), Bairstow has managed to score 462 runs with two hundreds and two fifties. The bowling too has looked good with Jofra Archer picking 17 wickets and Mark Wood clinching 16. But one area of concern would be the form of frontline spinner Adil Rashid. With just 8 wickets from nine games, he definitely needs to buck up. As for the Aussies, opener David Warner and skipper Finch have led from the front in the batting department. While Warner has 638 runs with three hundreds and three fifties,

Finch has 507 runs with two hundreds and two fifties. In the bowling department too, Mitchell Starc has been one of the best in world cricket. And while he seemed a bit off form coming into the World Cup, he now has 26 wickets in his name. And Pat Cummins has played perfect second fiddle with 13 wickets. Not to forget the left-arm deliveries from Jason Behrendorff. All in all, it will be a battle of nerves more than talent as only those who have the aptitude to soak in pressure will perform on the big stage. SQUADS: England: James Vince, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, Liam Plunkett, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson Australia: David Warner, Aaron Finch, Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan CoulterNile, Adam Zampa, Shaun Marsh, Kane Richardson

AIFF recommends ISL for AFC Champions League slot New Delhi, Jul 10 (PTI): The All India Football Federation (AIFF) Tuesday decided to recommend the winners of Indian Super League (ISL) to play in the AFC Champions League qualifiers, virtually according ISL the status of the country’s top tier competition. The executive committee of the AIFF, which met here, will recommend the Asian Football Confederation to “positively” consider its request to grant ISL’s winning team the ACL qualifier slot. The winning team of the I-League, the official top tier competition till date, has so far been playing in the qualifying round of the ACL -- Asia’s top tier club competition. I-League 201718 champions Minerva Punjab FC played in the ACL qualifying round this year. Normally, the slots of continental top-tier competition across the world are given to the clubs playing in the national top division leagues. Under the ‘Entry Manual for AFC Club Competitions for 2017-2020’, the

ACL slots are distributed among teams of the member countries of Asia which plays in their respective national top division league. “In the light of MRA as well as the fact that in the last 5 years the entire national squad are mostly being signed/playing for ISL clubs, and TV viewership and in-stadia audience having grown far more substantially vis-a-vis I-League, and ISL clubs complying with the entire AFC Club Licensing criteria, including strong grassroots, and youth development programmes which had also been certified by AFC, the AIFF Executive Committee recommends to the AFC to positively consider their request,” the AIFF said in a statement. The MRA was signed in 2010 between the AIFF and Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL),

which runs the the ISL. FSDL is a subsidiary of AIFF’s commercial partners IMG-Reliance. The ACL slot has been the bone of contention between the AIFF and six I-League clubs -- Mohun Bagan, East Bengal, Minerva Punjab, Churchill Brothers, Aizwal FC and Gokulam Kerala -- which had said that giving ISL winners the ACL slot will demote the I-League to second tier competition. They have also pointed out that ISL is a “closed league” without promotion or demotion as is the case anywhere in the world. In a meeting with these six I-League clubs on July 3, AIFF president Praful Patel had said he will approach the AFC to ensure that the status quo remains and both the league continue to co-exist for another 2-3 years.

Manchester, Jul 10 (PTI): India’s famed toporder imploded on a day when it mattered most as a gritty New Zealand survived a swift counter attack from Ravindra Jadeja to win an exciting World Cup semi-final by 18 runs, here Wednesday. Indian top-order had one failure due and much to their horror, the semi-final proved to be their dooms day. Jadeja (77 off 59 balls) used every ounce of his ‘bits and pieces’ skill but the ‘men in blue’ could only get as far as 221 in 49.3 overs in pursuit of 240. New Zealand made it to their second successive final, with credit going to their pacers’ -- Matt Henry

(3/37) and Trent Boult’s (2/42) -- deadly opening spell and Lockie Ferguson’s steely nerve in the penultimate over. The script was eerily similar to the 2015 World Cup semi-final and just like that evening in Sydney, skipper Virat Kohli was once again out cheaply and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (50) was stuck in the middle overs. Mitchell Santner (2/34) bottled Dhoni up and there was too much left for Jadeja to do even as he smacked four sixes and four boundaries to raise hopes of a turnaround. Call it irony, Dhoni, in what could be his last international innings, was run-out by a direct throw

Commonwealth C’ship: Indian weight lifters win 7 gold

Dutee wins gold at World Universiade

APIA (SAMOA), Jul 10 (PTI): Rakhi Halder and Davinder Kaur won a gold medal each in the senior women’s section as Indian weightlifters continued their impressive show on the second day of the Commonwealth Championships on Wednesday. India also won five other gold medals in the junior and youth sections. The Commonwealth Championships are being held simultaneously together for the youth, junior and senior categories. Kaur lifted a total of 184kg (80+104) to win the women’s 59kg gold while Halder clinched the yellow metal with a combined effort of 214kg (94+120) in the 64kg category. On the first day on Tuesday, India had clinched 8 gold, 3 silver and 2 bronze medals. For mer world champion Mirabai Chanu had clinched the gold in women’s 49kg with a total lift of 191kg.

from Martin Guptill. This was after Dhoni and Jadeja raised visions of an improbable win after adding 116 runs for the seventh wicket, coming together at 92 for six. Jadeja came in under overcast conditions when all looked lost and then wielded the willow like a sword, proving a point to critics like Sanjay Manjrekar in the most befitting manner. Call it a déjà vu but at a time when Jadeja was scripting a near impossible recovery, Kapil Dev was at the Neville Ground in Tunbridge Wells, where it all changed for Indian cricket one morning. After his angry 140 character rant on social media, it was time for a 24-carat

Dutee Chand

Napoli (Italy), Jul 10 (PTI): National record holder Dutee Chand became the first Indian woman track and field athlete to clinch a gold medal in the World Universiade after she won the 100m dash event in Napoli. The 23-year-old Dutee clocked 11.32 seconds to win the gold as she led the race from start to finish. Running at lane number 4, Dutee was the first one out of the eight athletes to blast off the starting blocks and she made most of it to fend off a late challenge from Del Ponte

(11.33) of Switzerland. Lisa KwaYie of Germany took the bronze in 11.39 seconds in the race run past midnight Indian time on Tuesday. The Odisha runner, whose national record stands at 11.24 seconds, thus became the first Indian to win a 100m gold in a global event. She has now become only the second Indian sprinter to win a gold in a global event after Hima Das, who clinched the top spot in 400m in the World Junior Athletics Championships last year. Dutee, who had a sil-

performance. Jadeja let his game do the talking as Kohli couldn’t have asked for a better all-round effort. He also took one wicket in 10 overs with his left-arm orthodox spin. But the recovery post 24 for four was wee bit too much. The chase wasn’t a big one but Henry’s first spell did upset the applecart once and for all. Man of the Moment, Rohit Sharma (1) got a delivery from Henry that squared him up as it straightened after pitching. The nick was taken by Tom Latham. Kohli (1) looked edgy against Boult, who angled a couple across the Indian captain before bringing his stock delivery that swung in.

KL Rahul (1) has never been comfortable against quality seam and swing bowling. It was no different today as Henry bowled one on the good length that deviated late and the opener failed to take his bat away with Latham taking a diving catch. At 5 for 3, India have had their worst start of the tournament and it just got even worse when Jimmy Neesham’s outstanding effort at backward point ended Dinesh Karthik’s (6 off 25 balls) misery. Rishabh Pant (32) and Hardik Pandya (32) then steadied the ship with a 47 run stand with the lefthander hitting some crisp drives through the off-side cordon. Just when they seemed to have got settled, Pant’s impetuosity cost India dearly as his slog sweep was taken by Colin de Grandhomme off Santner. When Pandya was also gone, trying to slog Santner, the end looked near but Jadeja, who joined Dhoni had other ideas. Earlier, New Zealand’s struggles continued on a fresh day as they finished on 239 for 8. Resuming at 211 for 5, the Black Caps could add only 28 runs to their overnight tally with a single boundary being hit off the remaining 23 balls. BRIEF SCORES: New Zealand: 239/8 in 50 overs (Ross Taylor 74, Ken Williamson 67; Bhuvneshwar Kumar 3/43); India: 221 all out in 49.3 overs (Ravindra Jadeja 77, M.S. Dhoni 50, Matt Henry 3/37)

ver each in 100m and 200m in the 2018 Asian Games, is also only the second Indian track and field athlete to win a gold in the World Universiade. Inderjeet Singh had clinched the top spot in men’s shot put event in the 2015 edition. After winning the race, Dutee, who recently admitted to having a relationship with a girl, tweeted: “Pull me down, I will come back stronger!” She further added: “With years of hardwork and your blessings, I have yet again broken the record by winning the Gold in 100m dash in 11.32 seconds at The World University Games, Napoli. In the pictures (picture of all three medal winners), are the winners too, with a heart of Gold from Germany and Sweden. Earlier on Tuesday, Dutee qualified for the final with a time of 11.41 seconds in the semifinal, which had made her the first Indian sprinter to make it to the final of World Universiade. On Monday, she had advanced to the semifinals from the heats with a time of 11.58 seconds.

India never had ‘Plan B’ in place

Manchester, Jul 10 (IANS): Questions about Indias over dependence on the top order was time and again shot down by the team management over the past month, but in the end, it was the opening 40 minutes of the Indian innings in the semifinal against New Zealand at the Old Trafford that showed that this team didnt have a Plan B in place. India lost to New Zealand by 18 runs after restricting them to 239/8 in the rain-hit semifinal played over two days. The Men in Blue were done in by a top order collapse which saw them lose four batsmen, including Rohit Sharma and ViratKohli, inside 10 overs with just 24 runs on board. Though RavindraJadeja (77) and M.S. Dhoni (50) shared a 116-run seventh wicket stand to raise hopes of an unlikely victory, it wasn’t enough in the end. India skipper ViratKohli and coach Ravi Shastri had

time and again said that it was a case of the top order flourishing and that it was only in the game against Afghanistan that the middle-order flopped. But the reality was that even in the group stage game against England, the middle-order was exposed. That time too, the duo of Kohli and Shastri supported the batsmen and said that it was a one-off situation and not something to be too perturbed about. India started their campaign with a floating number four in K.L. Rahul and that is exactly where the writing was on the wall. The selection committee led by M.S.K. Prasad had also said that Vijay Shankar (58 runs from three games before he was ruled out with an injury) was the number four as he was three dimensional. The team management made it clear that Rahul was their preferred number four and by the time the tournament ended for the

Men in Blue, Rishabh Pant (116 runs from four innings) was the batsman batting at number four. Playing on the big stage against the best in the world and not having a fixed batsman in a position which more often than not decides whether a team scores a defendable total or chases down a tough target was a shocker. In fact, the over confidence and over dependence on the trio of Kohli, Rohit and Rahul came back to haunt the Indians on their last day in the showpiece event. All the three managed one each and by the time the middle-order came into the action, the game was in New Zealand’s bag. Jadeja’s 77-run knock -- the highest in the history of the World Cup for a batsman batting at number eight in the second innings -- did raise hopes of an Indian fightback, but that didn’t hide the fact that after the top three, the Indian batting looked vulnerable.
