PM announces demonetisation The demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 banknotes was a policy enacted by the Government of India on 8 November 2016. All Rs 500 and Rs 1000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi Series ceased to be legal tender in India from 9 November 2016. The announcement was made by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an unscheduled live televised address at 20:15 on 8 November. In the announcement, Modi declared that use of all Rs 500 and Rs 1000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi Series would be invalid from midnight of the same day and announced the issuance of new Rs 500 and Rs 2000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi New Series in exchange for the old banknotes.

Oppositions Bharath Bandh on 28 November flopped Showing their disagreement over the demonetisation drive imposed by the central government, the opposition parties have called for a nationwide strike (Bharat Bandh) on November 28. During the Rajya Sabha session, the opposition party attacked the central government over demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes calling it to be an impractical move. As the left sponsored bharath Bandh has flopped, its leader Bimen bose said, “There is no point claiming that the bandh was entirely successful, it was successful only in some pockets. We took the decision on November 25 evening, there was hardly any time to campaign for the bandh. None of the trade union leaders were present in the city to spread awareness, so, it was not very effective. Also, we think people still believe that Modi’s decision of demonetisation will help unearth black money, but they don’t realise that the money is mostly overseas.”


New BJP Presidents in Delhi and Bihar BJP chief Amit Shah has appointed party MPs Manoj Tiwari and Nityanand Rai as party’s Delhi and Bihar unit presidents respectively. While Tiwari replaces Satish Upadhyay, Rai replaces Mangal Pandey. Manoj Tiwari represents Northeast Delhi constituency while Rai represents Ujiarpur constituency of Bihar in the Lok Sabha.

Terrorist attack at Nagrota Army camp Three heavily-armed terrorists killed by security forces during an encounter inside an army unit at Nagrota appear to be part of a group which recently sneaked into the Indian territory from Pakistan. Though there has been no official word from the army so far, sources said this was indicative from the seizure of a number of Pakistan-made items including eatables and medicines apart from arms, ammunition and explosives from the slain terrorists. Seven army men including two officers were killed when three fidayeens in police uniform stormed inside the premises of 166 Medium Regiment unit.and many other communities who were persecuted by the then Mysuru ruler.

National anthem to be played in movie theatres - Supreme court The Supreme Court has ordered that all cinema halls across the country should play the national anthem before the screening of films and that all present must “stand up in respect” till the anthem is ended. It said the practice would “instill a feeling within one a sense of committed patriotism and nationalism.” Cinema halls should also display the national flag on screen when the anthem is played, it said. “People must feel this is my country. This is my motherland... Arrey, who are you? You are an Indian first. In other countries, you respect their restrictions. In India, you do not want any restrictions?” Justice Misra remarked. ...people should feel that they live in a nation and show respect to the national anthem and the national flag,” Justice Misra said.

Jamdani

The finest muslin textile

From Bengal

14

Jamdani is one of the finest muslin textiles from Bengal, produced in the Dhaka District, Bangladesh for centuries. The historic production of jamdani was patronized by imperial warrants of the Mughal emperors. Under British colonialism, the Bengali jamdani and muslin industries rapidly declined due to colonial import policies favoring industrially manufactured textiles.

The traditional art of weaving jamdani has been declared by UNESCO as a Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Jamdani was originally known as Dhakai named after the city of Dhaka. The term Jamdani is Persian, deriving from ‘Jam’, meaning flower and ‘Dani’, a vase or a container, named after decorative floral WWW.WISHESH.COM | DECEMBER 2016

patterns found on Dhakai textile. Jamdanis are popularly known as Dhakai Jamdani or simply Dhakai. The earliest mention of origin of Jamdani and its development as an industry is found in Kautilya’s Arthashastra at about 3rd century BC, where it is stated that this fine cloth was used in Bangla and

Pundra. Its mention is also found in the book of Periplus of the Eritean Sea and in the accounts of Arab, Chinese and Italian travelers and traders. Jamdani is a handloom woven fabric made up of cotton, which was referred to as muslin. Jamdani’s weaving tradition is of Bengali origin. It is one of the most time and labor-intensive forms of handloom weaving. It is undoubtedly one of the best varieties of finest muslin. It has been the most artistic textile of the Bangladeshi weaver. Traditionally woven around Dhaka and created on the loom brocade, jamdani is fabulously rich in motifs.

to float on a shimmering surface. In this weaving technique, the pattern is not sketched or outlined on the fabric. Instead, it is drawn on a graph paper and placed underneath the warp. Jamdani is a fine muslin cloth on which decorative motifs are woven on the loom, typically in Grey and white. Often a mixture of cotton and gold thread were also used. Jamdani is a fusion of the ancient cloth-making techniques of Bengal with the muslin produced by Bengali Muslims since the 14th century. Jamdani is the most expensive product of Dhaka looms since it requires the most lengthy and dedicated work.

Jamdani is woven in a supplementary weft technique, where the artistic motifs are produced by a non-structural weft, in addition to the standard weft that holds the warp threads together. The standard weft creates a fine, sheer fabric while the supplementary weft with thicker threads adds the intricate patterns to it. Each supplementary weft motif is added separately by hand by interlacing the weft threads into the warp with fine bamboo sticks using individual spools of thread. The result is a myriad of vibrant patterns that appear DECEMBER 2016 | WWW.WISHESH.COM

Naming ceremony of

little Krishna and Balarama WWW.WISHESH.COM | DECEMBER 2016


The family priest of the Yadus was sage Garga. Nanda felt that his children should be named by sage Garga. So he requested sage Garga to visit Gokula and name the children. Accordingly sage Garga arrived in Gokula. Nanda and Yasoda received him with great joy and reverence.

All the people of Gokula came and prostrated before him. Nanda requested him to perform the naming ceremony for his two sons. Garga also had a purpose in coming to this place. So he immediately agreed. But he suggested that the ceremony should be performed without much pomp. Otherwise, it might draw the attention of Kamsa. If Kamsa came to know that sage Garga had performed the naming ceremony, he would think that the children must be of some importance and he would try to kill them.

Nanda agreed with sage Garga’s suggestion. Sage Garga performed all the rites in a simple way and told Nanda in private, “This Rohini’s child charms everyone with his beauty. He will delight his friends and relatives by his virtues. So we shall name him ‘Rama’. And because he will manifest extraordinary bodily strength, he will also be known as ‘Bala’ . So he will be called Balarama. Moreover, because he unites two families, Vasudeva’s family and Nanda’s family, he will be known also as

‘Sankarshana’. ”The younger boy is God incarnate. As he has a dark complexion, we shall name him Krishna. Since his father’s name is Vasudeva, he will be known as Vasudeva. This child, who is a source of joy to you and all others in Gokula, will bring you great good fortune. Look after him with all attention.” After completing the ceremony and blessing all of them, sage Garga departed for his own home. Nanda and Yasoda were highly pleased and felt blessed.

In the early morning of November 9, 2016, initial vote counts indicated that Donald Trump was projected to obtain over 270 electoral votes, a majority of the 538 electors in the electoral college required to make him the president-elect of the United States. The victory was considered unlikely by most pre-election forecasts and was characterized by various news organizations as an “upset” and the most “shocking” U.S. presidential election result since Harry S. Truman’s upset victory in 1948. Aside from Florida, the states which secured Trump’s victory are from the Great Lakes / Rust Belt region. Wisconsin went Republican for the first time since 1984, while Pennsylvania and Michigan went Republican for the first time since 1988.

Maine split its electoral votes for the first time since 1828. Despite winning the popular vote by more than 1.7 million, Hillary Clinton is poised to lose the Electoral College by 74 votes, with 30 states and Maine’s 2nd congressional district going to Trump and 20 states plus DC to Clinton.

It creates jobs.”

“The U.K. will consider further improvements to our visa offer if at the same time we can step up the speed and volume of returns of Indians with no right to remain in the U.K.,” she said. “We must therefore encourage greater mobility and participation of young people in education and research opportunities,” she said.

IN BUSINESS

After effects of Demonetisation Demonetisation has put a limit in the transfer of money. It has slowed down the transactions, which are hit with low business. But the people hope that the effect of demonetisation to curb the black money will give a huge impact in the area of real estate. The loan rates will come down, that helps the people to own a property easily and in less cost. 52

“In the NCR (National Capital Region), 35-40 percent of the money involved in the sale of pre-owned houses was in black. Only circle rates were covered in white. This has stopped after demonetisation,” said a property consultant in south Delhi’s Kalkaji area. “Similar is the case with the sale of flats that are built by developers -- properties that are taken over from existing independent house owners and developed into new houses. This kind of business has also come to a halt,” he added. “The only hope now is that, once the demonetisation drive stabilises -- say in threeWWW.WISHESH.COM | DECEMBER 2016

four-six months -- banks will extend more housing loans. I don’t see a problem since prices have crashed 25 percent. That is our only hope,” the property consultant said. “The primary sale of the houses will go up with the demonetisation move as the banks will lend more money to actual buyers,” Manoj Gaur, Managing Director of Gaursons India, said. “Banks are expected to lend money at a better rate of interest following an increase in their deposits. So, instead of parking their money in bonds or fixed deposits, people would prefer to buy property in the coming days.”

“The secondary market, in which the big deals of lands and houses were carried out at low circle rates, will feel the impact,” Gaur said. “I do not believe in the prediction of a few people that the property prices would go down by 25 per cent. Loan rates might drop in December after the policy statement is released. It will be reflected in a cut from 15 basis points (BPS) to 25 BPS and there would be more reduction in loan rates in the coming months,” Vinod Bahl, a senior journalist who writes on real estate, said. “There was some momentum seen during the festive seasons as good deals were


offered by the developers, but that has taken a back seat and buyers are waiting for price correction and the rate of home loans to go down,” he said. Jaishree Kurup, Head, Editorial and Advisory, at Magicbrics.com, said: “The cash-savvy market has been most affected due to the demonetisation mainly in north India and in Mumbai. Markets like Hyderabad and Chennai, which are not so much dependent on high cash transactions, have remained unaffected.” “Deals which had 30 to 40 per cent of cash transactions have got cancelled in recent days, while the deals which were based on home loans did not get affected,” she said.

Ravi Ramu, CEO and MD of VBHC-Value Homes Private Ltd., said, “Real estate to the extent it depends on cash transactions is dead for now.” “India’s GDP will steadily rise as the black money economy is largely snuffed out in the near-term and transactions get recorded in the mainstream economy. The fear of such bold anti-black wealth moves will presumably drive more to the ‘whiter’ way of doing business,” Ramu said. “Cheaper home loans and car loans and personal loans will fuel consumer spends,” Ramu added.

Demonetisation A bold and brave step on the

fight against corruption The demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 banknotes was a step taken by the Government of India on 8 November 2016, ceasing the usage of all Rs 500 and Rs 1000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi Series as a form of legal tender in India from 9 November 2016.

WWW.WISHESH.COM | DECEMBER 2016


The move was termed as a bold and brave initiative against corrunption and funding of terrorism. On 8 November 2016, an announcement was made by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an unscheduled live televised address to the nation at 20:15 IST. In the announcement, Modi has declared circulation of all Rs 500 and Rs 1000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi Series will be invalid effective from the midnight and announced the issuance of new Rs 500 and Rs 2000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi New Series in exchange for the old banknotes.

After the official announcement by Prime Minister Modi, the Governor of the Reserve Bank of India, Urjit Patel, and Economic Affairs secretary, Shaktikanta Das explained in a press conference that while the supply of notes of all denominations had increased by 40% between 2011 and 2016, theRs 500 and Rs 1000 banknotes increased by 76% and 109% respectively in this period owing to forgery. This forged cash was then used to fund terrorist activities against India. As a result the decision to eliminate the notes had been taken.

Patel also informed that the decision had been made about six months ago, and the printing of new banknotes of denomination Rs 500 and Rs 2000 had already started. However, only the top members of the government, security agencies and the central bank were aware of the move. But media had reported in October 2016 about introduction of Rs 2000 denomination well before the official announcement by RBI. This statement has led to much debate, because the Reserve Bank governor six months before the announcement was Raghuram Rajan, while the new banknotes have DECEMBER 2016 | WWW.WISHESH.COM

After India gained independence, he married Anjali in November 1947. Chandrashekhar Azad, the leader of that revolutionary movement, was not in favor of exploding bombs. However, others in the party persuaded Azad to accept Bhagat Singh’s plan and Azad selected Batukeshwar Dutt to accompany Bhagat Singh and throw the bombs in the Assembly. Batukeshwar Dut is best known for having exploded a few bombs, along with Bhagat Singh, in the Central Legislative Assembly in New Delhi on 8 April 1929. After they were arrested, tried and imprisoned for life, he and Bhagat Singh initiated a historic hunger strike protesting against the abusive treatment of Indian political prisoners, and eventually secured some rights for them. Along with Singh and Sukhdev, Dutt was tried in the Central Assembly Bomb Case and was sentenced in 1929 to life imprisonment by the Sessions Judge of Delhi under Section 307 of the Indian Penal Code & Section 4 of the Explosive Substances Act. He was deported to the Cellular Jail, Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Independent India did not accord him any recognition, and he has spent his remaining life in poverty away from the political limelight. Dutt outlived all his comrades and died on 20 July 1965 in the AIIMS hospital in Delhi after a long illness. He was cremated in Hussainiwala near Firozepur in Punjab where the bodies of his comrades Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev were also cremated.

INDIAN HISTORY

Mehrgarh era 82

Mehrgarh is a Neolithic (7000-3200 BC) site on the Kachi plain of Baluchistan, Pakistan, and one of the earliest sites with evidence of farming (wheat and barley) and herding (cattle, sheep and goats) in south Asia. The site is located on the principal route between what is now Afghanistan and the Indus Valley.

WWW.WISHESH.COM | DECEMBER 2016


The habitation of the site has been divided into seven periods, the first being the PrePottery Neolithic period that dates to circa 7000 B.C. or even earlier. The site was abandoned between 2000 and 2500 B.C. during a period of contact with the Indus Civilization and then reused as a burial ground for some time after 2000 B.C. Perhaps the most important feature of Mehrgarh is the fact that one can witness its gradual development from an early village society to a regional center that covered an area of 200 hectares at its height. In the course of this development, a huge platform that may reflect some form of authority was constructed at the site. Mehrgarh was also a center of manufacture for

various figurines and pottery that were distributed to surrounding regions Research shows that people here lived in houses and were involved in hunting, domesticating of animals and farming cereals like barley and wheat. This huntingfarming society developed gradually and their pursuits were creative. During the early period these people used stone and bone tools i.e. polished stone-axes, flint blades and bone-pointers. By 6000 B.C. the handmade pottery appeared and in the 5th millenium B.C. Metallurgy and potterwheel were introduced and they produced some fine terra-cotta figurine and pottery with exotic geometric designs. Subsequently they produced and wore ornaments of beads, seashells and semi-precious

stones like Lapis Lazuli. Most of the ruins at Mehrgarh are buried under alluvium deposits, though some structures could be seen eroding on the surface. Currently, the excavated remains at the site comprise a complex of large compartmental mud-brick structures. Function of these subdivided units, built of hand-formed plano-convex mud bricks, is still not clear but it is thought that many were used probably for storage, rather than residential, purposes. A couple of mounds also contain formal cemeteries, parts of which have been excavated. Although Mehrgarh was abandoned by the time of the emergence of the literate urbanized phase of the Indus civilization around DECEMBER 2016 | WWW.WISHESH.COM

Bajaj’s

iconic chetak

to be relaunched There was a day when Bajaj’s scooter Chetak ruled the roads. It is still nostalgic for many when talking about scooter. They do not have anything to talk but Bajaj Chetak. The iconic scooter was out of market at around 2006. Now there is a good news for all the ‘Hamara Bajaj’ lovers. Chetak is going to be relaunched in the year 2017.

DECEMBER 2016 | WWW.WISHESH.COM


TECHNOLOGY

As per the images in a publication, the 2017 Bajaj Chetak will miss out on telescopic forks up front and the front drum brake. However, since the final production model is a bit far away from reality, we can safely assume that Bajaj will add up these elements to its scooter to enhance its desirability quotient. The specifications are not revealed, but says that it is ready to compete with the present day scooters. The Chetak is expected to have an all-new design and modern features to lure the customers and give competition to the already powerful Honda Activa 125 and TVS Jupiter in the market. 88

The all new Bajaj Chetak will get front disc brakes, a conventional suspension setup to enhance the riding experience and a host of utility spaces like large under seat storage, front storage space and hooks under the seat. Going by the image, the new Chetak also will be equipped with leather or premium seat upholstery with contrast stitching, blackened-out side view mirrors and will have a glossy exterior paint. To make the scooter look contemporary, the two-wheeler maker has equipped the new Chetak with a new headlamp cluster, sleek vertical turn indicators at the front along with bigger air vents at the centre. It is expected that the Bajaj Chetak will be powered by a four-stroke, air-cooled 125cc or 150cc engine that will produce more power figures that the previous model and will be paired to an automatic gearbox.

The winter session of Parliament began on Wednesday 16 November, the Lok Sabha was adjourned for the day after Speaker Sumitra Mahajan read out the obituaries of former members of Parliament. The debate over demonetisation got under way in the Rajya Sabha. On day three of the winter session of Parliament, Rajya Sabha proceedings were disrupted with BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi demanding an apology from Leader of the Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad for his remarks on Thursday. Mr. Azad had made comments linking the Uri terror attack casualties to the deaths during the demonetisation “crisis”. Opposition parties in both Houses refused to allow any proceedings on 25 Novenber, objecting to the PM’s remark on earlier in the day that “some people” are criticising demonetisation because “the government did not give any time to them to make any preparation (to convert black money into white)”.

Leader of Congress Mallikarjuna Kharge said, “The issue now is not our demand for an adjournment motion but the remarks of the Prime Minister. He said the opposition supports black money.” “There was good debate yesterday (Thursday) when everyone opposed black money. And now the PM is 100 saying he is a saint and we are all devils,” Derek O’Brien of Trinamool Congress had said earlier in the Rajya Sabha. While the parliament is being stalled in the name of demonetisation, there is a overwhelming support from the people of India in this brave and bold move to put an end to the evil of black money. The people waiting in the queues of ATMs and banks pledged their support to this earnest move even when they are struggling to withdraw their hard earned money deposited in the banks.

Rock On 2 Rock On 2 is a film that can be completely ignored because of the poor narration. The movie fails to make any noise with the music. Give it a skip. 116

Story : Rock On 2 is all about Adi (Farhan Akhtar) who moves to Meghalaya and he starts working for the welfare of locals over there. Joe (Arjun Rampal) turns judge for a reality show and he owns a bar that plays live music. KD (Purab Kohli) prays for re-uniting the band and his hope raises after he listens to a recording by Jiah (Shraddha Kapoor) and Uday (Shashank Arora). The rest of the film is all about how the band re-united and what happens next. Watch Rock On 2 to know about the rest.

WWW.WISHESH.COM | DECEMBER 2016

Analysis : The first half of the movie starts low in pace and the narration has been quite dull. Though some of the moments raise the race, the film dips down again. Couple of songs have been shot well and the performances by the lead actors make the audience energetic. The interval episodes make the audience engaging however the film has been quite slow in pace and it lacks entertainment. On the whole the first half of Rock On 2 tests your patience. The second half of Rock On 2 too carries the same mood and it dips down completely. The biggest disappointment is the songs as none of them have been melodious and interesting. The pre-climax episodes have been dragged too much that they test the patience of the audience. On the whole the second half of Rock On 2 is quite disappointing.

Final Word: Rock On 2 is a film that can be completely ignored because of the poor narration. The movie fails to make any noise with the music. Give it a skip.

Analysis : The first half of Force 2 promises some a decent commercial action drama as the film has been a right mix of all the ingredients. John Abraham opens with a bang and his introduction has been loud and stupendous. After a decent commercial drama, the film turns extremely interesting. Though it has small dips, the first half of Force 2 manages to stand strong all over. The songs have been shot well and the interval episodes make the film interesting. The second half of Force 2 has been quite emotional and it has been laced with action. The element of crime dominates the film completely and Force 2 is sure not a disappointment. The movie takes the right move all over and it makes a decent impact on the audience all over. The pre-climax episodes of Force 2 have been completely engaging however Sonakshi Sinha acts as the major disappointment in the film. The climax has been decent and on the whole, Force 2 is sure a decent and engaging action drama.

Story : Dear Zindagi is all about Kyra (Alia Bhatt) and her life style. She breaks up with Sid (Angad Bbedi) and then with Raghuvendra (Kunal Kapoor).

Analysis : The first half of Dear Zindagi rarely has something to express and it looks completely clitched. The screenplay has been hammered enough that it makes no difference. The entire first half has been wasted without revealing anything to the audience. Some of the episodes impress the audience but they make no impact on the whole. The visuals have been fresh and the interval episodes looked simple. On the whole the first half of Dear Zindagi is a disappointment. The second half of Dear Zindagi has been decent however it tests the patience of the audience. Some of the episodes have been dragged without any need.

It’s going to be a positive period financially, but there might be some extra expenses at the beginning of the month. Health will need attention between 10th and 18th.

LEO Keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best as you will be in for surprises. You won’t know what hit you (in a good way) with new ideas materialising and new tie ups coming into play. Expect clarity to come through around 10th-16th. If you’re looking for a new job or investors, after the 15th is a brilliant period, but don’t expect clarity till end of this month. You might work with or hire new people this month. Spend time organising paperwork. Health will need attention between 9th-27th, especially eyes and stomach.


VIRGO November was not your best month. But all your ideas and plans will move forward after the 7th, and you can expect people to acknowledge or understand them after the 15th. Clarity about an ongoing project will come through after the 12th. You might even go through a role or job change after December 17. This month, new associations or tie ups are on the cards. Work will be slow from 24th to 29th. Organise finances as you might feel financially insecure. Health will need attention between 1st and 18th, and post 26th.

SCORPIO While work will be slow till 12th, expect clarity and more work to come in after 14th and 22nd. New orders, sampling, projects will keep you busy after the 23rd. Avoid friction with staff around 18th-24th. You could be in the limelight after the 25th. Abundance through old clients will flow in after the 17th. Avoid extra expenses around 3rd-16th. A family member’s health will need attention around the 6th-17th. Avoid friction with your partner after the 27th.

AQUARIUS December will be a slow period at work, no matter what you try to do. Even if things move forward, there will be a slowdown from other people’s end. This can be frustrating but it will also give you a second chance to rework and structure to prepare you for the end result. Avoid arguments at work around 18th-25th as it could backfire. Finances will be slow due to extra expenses.

LIBRA Everything you want will manifest this month. In fact be careful what you ask for. New opportunities will keep you busy till the 8th, post which work will be slow due to travels and pick up after the 24th. You might work with new people this month. Delegate more, else you will burn yourself out. Health will need attention due to exhaustion around 16th-28th. Family life will be stable throughout the month. Just avoid friction with your partner between 20th and 26th .

SAGITTARIUS You need to have a plan in place before you jump to decisions. You have been getting carried away by your ambitions. You also need to be practical. Clarity will come through after the 7th and 22nd, but don’t be aggressive with people at work. Avoid friction with a senior member around 17th-26th. Health will need attention between 6th-17th. Family life will be stable, but post 17th, a family member’s health will be of concern.

CAPRICORN Work will be erratic, some days good and some days slow. You can’t do much. Don’t blame yourself for the slowdown. Not everything can be under your control. New job opportunities or orders will come through after the 11th. An important meeting around 18th-23rd will work in your favour. Don’t fear the past repeating in areas of work. Balance eating patterns and sleep on time.

PISCES You need to take charge but at the same time be patient. You have been procrastinating or feeling lazy, but the energies this month will give you the push to move forward. Work will be stable throughout the month with minor delays around the 16th and 21st. An important meeting around 6th to 11th and after 26th will bring in abundance. Health will need attention, especially stomach and lower back, throughout the month. DECEMBER 2016 | WWW.WISHESH.COM
