Akshay Kumar & his Cast came for ‘the Shaukeens’ Film

Press Conference at Imperial hotel in New Delhi

 

New Delhi: Akshay Kumar & his cast came for his upcoming movie ‘The Shaukeens’ Press Conference at Imperial Hotel (near Janpath).  Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor, Piyush Sharma & director of the film Abhishek Sharma addressed the press conference.

This movie is remake of “the Shaukeens” 1982.Its a Hindi Comedy genre based film directed by Abhishek Sharma. The film features Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor, Piyush Sharma along with Lisa Haydon.

 

The Film is going to be released on 7th November. Apart from the actions, thriller, Akshay’s fans are waiting for a different mood. Here various artists confronted each other. Also the popular singer Yo Yo Honey Sigh (Alcoholic & Manali Trance) has been signed to sing for this film.

 

Akshay Kumar shared his view on comedy type movies “In India, actors who performs the role of a comedian are not appreciated that much as it deserves. See, in Foreign Comedian actors are honored with National Awards and are loved by audience.”

“Here, in our industry the actor who gets ‘Best Romantic Award is called as Best actor’ of the movie but comedian actor gets only a ‘Best comedian Award’ he is not considered as ‘Best Actor’. This is somehow is really disappointing. Making laugh other is not an easy job, it’s really a tough job & yes we hope that our audience will love ‘the Shaukeens’ movie.

Anupam Kher told the media that there are five actors who are from NSD (National School of Drama) “I, Annu Kapoor, Piyush Sharma, and two other actors who are not present here are from NSD”.

Lisa Haydon was supposed to come but due to her bad health she didn’t come. “Actually, Lisa is ill; she has dengue that is why she could not come here to attend this press conference.” – Akshay told.

Piyush Sharma told the media about their movie ‘the Shaukeens’.

“People can watch ‘the Shaukeens’ Film with their families, there is no Sex jokes in the movie, it is a free from vulgar type of things, and you can enjoy our Film with friends, families & relatives” – Piyush Sharma said.

50 Inspiring Motivational Quotes, Utterances of Swami Vivekananda

1)    All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have
put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.

2)    Arise, awake, sleep no more; within each of you there is the power
to remove all wants and all miseries. Believe this, and that power
will be manifested.

3)    Be free; hope for nothing from anyone. I am sure if you look back
upon your lives you will find that you were always vainly trying to
get help from others which never came.

4)    Be not afraid, for all great power throughout the history of
humanity has been with the people. From out of their ranks have come
all the greatest geniuses of the world, and history can only repeat
itself. Be not afraid of anything. You will do marvellous work.

5)    Be not in despair; the way is very difficult, like walking on the
edge of a razor; yet despair not, arise, awake, and fine the ideal,
the goal.

6)    Be strong, my young friends; that is my advice to you. You will be
nearer to Heaven through football than through the study of the Gita.
These are bold words; but I have to say them, for I love you. I know
where the shoe pinches.

7)    Calm and silent and steady work, and no newspaper humbug, no
name-making, you must always remember.

8)    Come out into the universe of Light. Everything in the universe is
yours, stretch out your arms and embrace it with love. If you every
felt you wanted to do that, you have felt God.

9)    Cowards only sin, brave men never, no, not even in mind.

10)    Do not be afraid of a small beginning great things come
afterwards. Be courageous. Do not try to lead your brethren, but serve
them. The brutal mania for leading has sunk many a great ships in the
waters of life. Take care especially of that, i.e. be unselfish even
unto death, and work.

11)    Do not figure out big plans at first, but, begin slowly, feel your
ground and proceed up and up.

12)    Do not wait for anybody or anything. Do whatever you can. Build
your hope on none.

13)    Go on bravely. Do not expect success in a day or a year. Always
hold on to the highest. Be steady. Avoid jealousy and selfishness. Be
obedient and eternally faithful to the cause of truth, humanity, and
your country, and you will move the world.

14)    Have faith in yourselves, and stand up on that faith and be
strong; that is what we need.

15)    Hold on to your ideals… .Above all, never attempt to guide or
rule others, or, as the Yankees say, ‘boss’ others. Be the servant of
all.

16)    I hate cowardice; I will have nothing to do with cowards or
political nonsense. I do not believe in any politics. God and truth
are the only politics in the world, everything else is trash.

17)    I want each one of my children to be a hundred times greater than
I could ever be. Everyone of you must be a giant— must, that is my
word. Obedience, readiness, and love for the cause— if you have these
three, nothing can hold you back.

18)    If you are really my children, you will fear nothing, stop at
nothing. You will be like lions. We must rouse India and the whole
world. No cowardice. I will take no nay. Do you understand?

19)    If you can think that infinite power, infinite knowledge and
indomitable energy lie within you, and if you can bring out that
power, you also can become like me.

20)    Infinite patience, infinite purity, and infinite perseverance are
the secret of success in a good cause.

21)    It is our own mental attitude which makes the world what it is for
us. Our thought make things beautiful, our thoughts make things ugly.
The whole world is in our own minds. Learn to see things in the proper
light. First, believe in this world, that.

22)    Know that every time you feel weak, you not only hurt yourself but
also the cause. Infinite faith and strength are the only conditions of
success.

23)    Let people say whatever they like, stick to your own convictions,
and rest assured, the world will be at your feet. They say, ‘Have
faith in this fellow or that fellow’, but, I say, ‘Have faith in
yourself first’. that’s the way.

24)    Man is born to conquer nature and not to follow it.

25)    Man never dies, nor is he ever born; bodies die, but he never dies.

26)    Neither numbers nor powers nor wealth nor learning nor eloquence
nor anything else will prevail, but purity, living the life, in one
word anubhuti, realization. Let there be a dozen of lion-souls in each
country, lions who have broken their own bonds, who have touched the
Infinite, whose whole soul is gone to Brahma, who care neither for
wealth nor power nor fame, and these will be enough to shake the
world.

27)    Never mind the struggles, the mistakes. I never heard a cow tell a
lie, but it is only a cow— never a man. So never mind these failures,
these little backslidings; hold the ideal a thousand times, and if you
fail a thousand times, make the attempt once more.

28)    Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the
greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin? to
say that you are weak, or others are weak.

29)    No great work can be achieved by humbug. It is through love, a
passion for truth, and tremendous energy, that all undertakings are
accomplished.

30)    No need for looking behind. FORWARD! We want infinite energy,
infinite zeal, infinite courage, and infinite patience, then only will
great things achieved.

31)    Oh, if only you knew yourselves! You are souls; you are Gods. If
ever I feel like blaspheming, it is when I call you man.

32)    Pay no attention whatsoever to newspaper nonsense or criticism. Be
sincere and do your duty. Everything will come all right. Truth must
triumph.

33)    Perfect sincerity, holiness, gigantic intellect, and
all-conquering will. Let only a handful of men work with these, and
the whole world will be revolutionized.

34)    Persevere on, my brave lads, We have only just begun. Never
despond! Never say enough!

35)    Purity, perseverance, and energy— these three I want.

36)    Purity, patience and perseverance overcome all obstacles. All
great things must of necessity be slow.

37)    Say, “I can do everything.” “Even if poison of a snake is
powerless if you can firmly deny it.”

38)    Say, “This misery that I am suffering is of my own doing, and that
very thing proves that it will have to be undone by me alone.”

39)    Take courage and work on. Patience and steady work— this is the only way.

40)    Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it,
dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every
part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other
idea alone. This is the way to success, that is way great spiritual
giants are produced.

41)    “The earth is enjoyed by heroes”— this is the unfailing truth. Be
a hero. Always say, “I have no fear”.

42)    The remedy for weakness is not brooding over weakness, but
thinking of strength.

43)    This is the great fact: strength is life, weakness is death.
Strength is felicity, life eternal, immortal; weakness is constant
strain and misery: weakness is death.

44)    To succeed, you must have tremendous perseverance, tremendous
will. ‘I will drink the ocean’, says the persevering soul, ‘at my will
mountains will crumble up.’ Have that sort of energy, that sort of
will, work hard, and you will reach the goal.

45)    To work with undaunted energy! What fear! Who is powerful enough
to thwart you.

46)    Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.

47)    We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves
to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has
been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that
whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present
actions; so we have to know how to act.

48)    We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you
think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.

49)    We reap what we sow. We are the makers of our own fate. None else
has the blame, none has the praise.

50)    Whatever you think, that you will be. If you think yourselves
weak, weak you will be; if you think yourselves strong, strong you
will be.

Tornado ‘CAG’ Landfall Hit BJP Government With Full Force

October31, 2014 (C) Ravinder Singh ravinderinvent@gmail.com

Tornado CAG has hit the BJP government with 2G Spectrum Allocations
cancelled earlier and now Coal Allocations scrapped since 1993 and SC
insisting on release of all Black Money Accounts have all compromised
CREDIBILTY of the GoI.

Global Ranking in doing business has slipped 8 ranks. Credit to
Farmers and rural economy has reduced to just 8% against Vyas
Commission Recommendation of 18%. There is actually $160b growth in
Bank Deposits but Credits to Industry Declined..

In just five months BJP government is hit by two Cyclones,
Unprecedented Kashmir Floods, Uttarkhand Again Hit by Land Slides and
most of India hit by drought for first two months of monsoon.

FM pleaded with CAG to Dilute SCAMS charges in its reports as taken by
media as GAG orders.

Gag the CAG http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkE8lVao0Ss
    He has to Scrutinize Decision Making Process.
    He doesn’t have to Sensationalize
    He doesn’t have to get into headlines,
    India paid heavy price after 2G and Coal Licenses scrapped.

Even as Bank Deposits have gone up $160b but in RBI report of
October10, 2014 there is actually decline in credit to Industry from
Rs.25229 billion in March2014 to Rs.25019 billion in August22, 2014.
Except Construction, Infrastructure & Power all other sector has seen
invest DECLINE since March2014.

Against Bank Deposits of Rs.82,138b Credit to All Industries is barely
Rs.25,069b or roughly 30% which is pathetic as per latest reports.
Auto Exports are down.

GoI has not protected even population growth in announcing MSP of Rabi
Crops after Low Rainfall Monsoon.

Prices in (Rs. per quintal)
Commodity    MSP for 2013-14    MSP for 2014-15    Increase in Rs. & %
Wheat    1400    1450    50  / 3.5%
Barley    1100    1150    50  / 4.55%
Gram    3100    3175    75 / 2.4%
Masur (Lentil)    2950    3075    125 / 4.2%
Rapeseed/Mustard    3050    3100    50 / 1.6%
Safflower    3000    3050    50 / 1.6%

There is Total Paralysis In Practically All Sectors, No New Projects
are Taken Up.

COUNTRYWIDE DHARNA

31102014

COUNTRYWIDE DHARNA STAGED TODAY BY OFFLINE RETAILERS ON ONLINE RETAIL FIASCO
STRONG DEMAND OF  FORMATION OF RULES & REGULATIONS & REGULATORY AUTHORITY

In their first major show of resentment and anguish over current fiasco on online retail business, the offline traders across the Country staged series of Dharna today at more than 150 cities in different states of the Country led by a Dharna at Jantar Mantar at New Delhi. The series of Dharna was held under the umbrella of the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) demanding investigation into business modules of online retail platforms and their pricing mechanism and formation of a regulatory authority to regulate and monitor all sorts of retail trade in India.

The Dharna, held in the wake of unrealistic discounts offered by online retailers in the just-concluded Diwali festival was held in Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Calicut, Cochin, Kolkata Chandigarh, Lucknow, Nagpur, Baroda, Kanpur, Dehradoon, among other places. In Delhi, beside large number of other organizations’, the Dharna was prominently joined by Delhi Mobile Dealers Association, Delhi Computer Dealers Association, All India Distributors Association, Consumer Electronics Traders Association, Book Publishers Association etc.

Addressing protestors at New Delhi, CAIT Secretary General Mr. Praveen Khandelwal said that business of offline retail was down by at least 45% because of the predatory pricing mechanism and non-transparent & unchecked business practices adopted by e-retailers. There has to be a law for conducting any format of trade in the County and therefore like US, UK, China & European Countries where they have established Rules & Regulations for e-retail, India too must have specific Act, Rules & Regulations for E Commerce business in India-said Khandelwal.

In USA, E Commerce business is regulated through Federal Trade Commission and in UK, the E Commerce business is regulated through Electronic Commerce (E C Directive) Regulations, 2002 whereas in European Union it is regulated via EU Electronic Commerce Directive. In such a situation, the Government must immediately formulate Rules & Regulations for Indian E Commerce Business. China too has various rules & regulations to keep a check on e retail business.

Not only the offline trade but entire India Uninc comprising of Traders, Transporters, SMEs, Truck Operators, Farmers, Hawkers, Cooperative institutions and Consumers will be motivate to join hands together to demand cleaning operation of E Commerce in India. The CAIT has convened a meeting of senior officials of Brand Companies in Mobiles, Consumer Electronics, FMCG, Computers & other segments, on forthcoming 5th November at New Delhi since their respective brand image is also being affected and the long established confidence between Companies & the offline retailers is at stake-said CAIT.

We are neither against online retail format of trade nor against any online retailer but the business practices of online retailers are dicey having no Government check, unfair, unhealthy and against all business norms thereby creating an uneven level playing field which is badly affecting the offline trade and that is why we are demanding Rules & Regulations for entire retail spectrum of the Country-said Mr. B.C.Bhartia, CAIT National President.

Brick and mortar stores have to pay numerous taxes and undertake large-scale paper work, while e-retailers are registered in one state and making deliveries across the country, causing revenues losses to states, where they are not registered. Under the present structure, the business executed through online retail remains unchecked. No tax authority of any State could firmly say up to what extent the goods are being consumed in their respective State through online retail. Therefore, a check of taxation authorities is more necessary like offline trade.

It is most astonishing and surprising that loss making companies are offering huge discounts and yet financers including business tycoons are advancing finances to them on a large scale. It can happen only in India and that too in online retail trade-said CAIT. Certainly, it creates a doubt as to why the financers are more interested in financing entities which are running in losses? Obviously, there could be some hidden reasons-said both Mr. Bhartia & Mr. Khandelwal.

Delhi State President of CAIT Mr. Ramesh Khanna said that CAIT seeks constitution of a Special Task Force of taxation experts to examine the compliance of taxation obligations of e-retailers and to study whether there is any tax avoidance. CAIT also wants the Centre to set up a joint committee of senior officials and stakeholders to study the impact of online retail business on offline markets in addition to constituting a Board of Internal Trade for development of business avenues in domestic trade and its empowerment and to upgrade and modernize the existing retail trade.





Recent Amendments in the FDI policy on the Construction Development  

31102014

In line with the Budget announcement of the Government, the Union Cabinet gave its approval for amending the existing Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policy on the ‘Construction Development Sector’.

 

The measures taken by the Union Government are expected to result in enhanced inflows into the Construction Development sector. Given the shortage of land in and around urban agglomerations as well as the high cost of land, the measures are likely to attract investments in new areas and encourage development of plots for serviced housing. The measures are also expected to result in creation of much needed low cost affordable housing in the country and development of smart cities.

 

The amendments in the FDI policy, contained in the Consolidated FDI Policy Circular 2014 are as follows:

 

1)  100% FDI under automatic route will be permitted in the construction development sector.

 

2) Investment in the Construction Development Sector will be subject to the following conditions:

 

(a) Minimum area to be developed under each project would be:

 

1) In case of development of serviced plots, there is no condition of minimum land.

2) In case of construction-development projects, a minimum floor area would be of 20,000 sq. meters.

3) In case of a combination project, any one of the above two conditions will need to be complied with.

 

(b) The investee company will be required to bring minimum FDI of US$ 5 million within six months of commencement of the project. Subsequent inflows of FDI can be brought till the period of ten years from the commencement of the project or before the completion of the project, whichever expires earlier.

 

(c) The investor will be permitted to exit on completion of the project or after three years from the date of final investment, subject to development of trunk infrastructure.

 

(d) The Government may, in view of facts and circumstances of a case, permit repatriation of FDI or transfer of stake by one non-resident investor to another non-­resident investor, before the completion of the project. These proposals will be considered by FIPB on case to case basis.

 

(e) The project shall conform to the norms and standards, including land use requirements and provision of community amenities and common facilities, as laid down in the applicable building control regulations, bye-laws, rules, and other regulations of the State Government/Municipal/Local Body concerned.

 

(f) The Indian investee company will be permitted to sell only developed plots.  For the   purposes of this  policy   “developed   plots”   will   mean   plots   where  trunk infrastructure including roads, water supply, street lighting, drainage and sewerage, have been made available.

 

(g) The Indian investee company shall be responsible for obtaining all necessary approvals, including those of the building/layout plans, developing internal and peripheral areas and other infrastructure facilities, payment of development, external development and other charges and complying with all other requirements as prescribed under applicable rules/bye-laws/regulations of the State Government/ Municipal/Local Body concerned.

 

(h) The State Government/ Municipal/ Local Body concerned, which approves the building / development plans, will monitor compliance of the above conditions by the developer.

Federal Reserve concludes the Asset Purchase Program

31102014

 

 

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) has directed the Open Market Trading Desk (the Desk) at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to conclude the current asset purchase program by the end of October on account of substantial improvement in the outlook for the labor market and sufficient underlying strength in the broader economy to support ongoing progress toward maximum employment in a context of price stability.

 

The FOMC has also directed the Desk to maintain the existing policy of reinvesting principal payments from the Federal Reserve’s holdings of agency debt and agency Mortgage-Backed-Securities (MBS) in agency MBS and of rolling over maturing Treasury securities at auction. This policy, by keeping the Committee’s holdings of longer-term securities at sizable levels, should help maintain accommodative financial conditions. Each month, the System Open Market Account (SOMA) portfolio receives sizable principal payments on its securities holdings, which, if not reinvested, would decrease the size of the SOMA portfolio.  Reinvestment, by keeping the Committee’s holdings of longer-term securities at sizable levels, should help maintain accommodative financial conditions.

 

Reinvestments in agency MBS will continue to be concentrated in newly-issued agency MBS in the To-Be-Announced (TBA) market. The Desk will adjust the number of individual agency MBS operations per month as needed for operational efficiency. The distribution of agency MBS purchases could change if market conditions warrant. The planned amount of reinvestments in agency MBS that are anticipated to take place over each monthly period will continue to be announced on or around the eighth business day of the month. For the remainder of the current reinvestment period, which ends on November 13, 2014, the Desk will continue to publish a tentative schedule of FedTrade agency MBS operations on or around the last business day of each week for a weekly period beginning the following business day. Consistent with current practices, the purchases of agency MBS will be conducted with the Federal Reserve’s primary dealers through a competitive bidding process and results will be published on the Federal Reserve Bank of New York ’s website. The Desk will continue to publish transaction prices for individual operations at the end of each monthly period.

NAPM 10th Convention Tmw in Pune in Backdrop of Government Changing Environmental, Land and Social Security Acts
From: napm india <napmindia@gmail.com> Thu, 30 Oct ’14 8:25p
To: napmmedia <napmmedia@googlegroups.com> and others
  • 20 years journey of people’s movements unfolds in Pune!

  • All India People’;s Movements Meet in Backdrop of Government Changing Environmental, Land and Social Security Acts

  • National Alliance of People’s movements – 10th Biennial Convention. 31st October to 2 November. Rashtra Seva Dal, Parvati, Pune.

Pune / New Delhi, October 30 : Representatives of people’s movements striving for equality, social justice and sustainable development are meeting in Pune from 31stOctober to 2nd November to attend the 10th Biennial Convention of NAPM (National Alliance of People’s Movements). These activists have been instrumental in various social struggles and have played a key role in bringing about the important acts like Forest Rights Act for tribal people (2005), revised Land Acquisition and Rehabilitation Act (2013), Hawkers Act (2009), Employment Guarantee Act (2005).

Tribal people and farmers fighting for their land rights, urban poor fighting for their right to shelter, groups of people fighting against nuclear energy, communities fighting to save their water-forest-land, experts stressing the need of alternative development model are going to be a part of this three day programme.

Senior educationist Anil Sadgopal will inaugurate the convention on 31st October at 10.30 a.m. Noted social activists Medha Patkar will review the 20 years journey of NAPM, and Aruna Roy, Mazdoor Kisan Shakti Sangathan and former member National Advisory Council, will chair this session and reflect on the struggle for accountability and transparency in governance. In a special programme on this occasion, respected senior supporters of people’s movements will be felicitated.

A public meeting on ‘Development policy, social justice and India’s future’ will take place at 5.30 p.m. Yogendra Yadav, Pushpa Bhave, Vinoy Vishvam, Dayamani Barla, Khaleel Deshmukh, Shreenivas Khandewale and Vilas Bhongade will be part of this discussion.

On 31st October between 2pm to 5pm, group discussions will happen on a range of subjects like agriculture, water, energy, ownership of natural resources, urban planning, alternate development policy, health, education, right to food and others. On 1stNovember between 9am to 11am, summary of the discussions will be presented. At 6.30 p.m., public meeting on ‘Role of people’s movements in political transformation’ is planned. Ajit Jha, Nikhil Wagle, Lingraj Azad, Dr. Sunilam, Gautam Mody, Anil Chaudhary, will participate in the discussion. Medha Patkar will chair the session.

This convention is being viewed with great enthusiasm, as the laws that the new government intends to change, have been developed through these movements. UPA government had considered the voice of People’s Movements to some extent. Senior activist Aruna Roy was even introduced in the National Advisory Committee. BJP government, however, has started questioning the social organisations, people’s movements immediately after taking charge. In this context, how the people’s movements decide their way forward will be an interesting aspect of consideration.

In the context of the new developments from the Modi Government plannning to dilute and radically change pro poor laws like the LAAR Act, Labour Laws, Right to Information, MNREGA, Legislation related to Social Security making them anti-poor legislations: various social groups and alliances from across the country have converged today for a Samajvadi Samagam (Socialist Meet) at the SM Joshi Foundation. The purpose of this meeting is to bring together all the like minded socialist groups on to a common platform to fight together the rise of fascism and the present government’;s Assault on the lives, livelihoods and natural resources of the common people and vulnerable sections of this country.

The coming together of people’;s movements is significant at this juncture since, there is outrage at the moment at the way NDA government has been changing environmental laws and wants to change many. The movements are determined to halt any such changes and increase the resistance at the grassroots level against the ongoing assault on the livelihood and natural resources by corporations with help of the government.

A Building Block to Success: Job Shadowing

By Macy Schneider, Iowa State University, Agricultural Communications Student

How do you know if your dream career is the right fit for you? There are hundreds of tests and quizzes online to assure you. You can spend hours and hours in the classroom and in college lecture halls filling your toolbox with information you hope to be able to put to use one day. There are even job descriptions available for job seekers which give a broad overview of the exact position you may wish to fulfill in the job market. However, none of the tests or quizzes, endless lectures, or job descriptions will give you as much reassurance as job shadowing a professional in your future career field.

The first step to any successful job shadowing experience is to determine what you wish to gain and what you want to learn more about. Once you have your overall objectives in mind, you can then look online or through your current networking contacts to determine who will help you meet those goals. It is always best to contact the person in the position you wish to job shadow first by email or phone. Always remember to be polite and professional, identify who you are, what you are wishing to achieve, and ask if such opportunities are available.

Sardar Patel-National Unity Day

30102014

Whenever we utter or hear the name of Mahatma Gandhi, the first word comes to mind is ‘Non-violence’. Similarly, when we take the name of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, what we recall is the word ‘Iron Man’. The project of building world’s tallest statue of the ‘Iron Man’ in Gujarat has been declared a ‘National Project’ in the union budget 2014-15 for which the centre has allocated Rs. 200 crores. The Gujarat government has already given Rs. 500 crores in its budget to construct this iconic structure which will stand tall in the waters of river Narmada to represent the oneness of Indians despite the long standing socio-cultural diversity that exist in India and commemorate the man behind this unity and oneness of the nation. That’s why Government of India has decided to celebrate Vallabhbhai Patel’s birth anniversary on October 31 as ‘National Unity Day’.

Statue of Unity: an Icon of India

An Iconic 182 meters Statue, that’s a tribute to the Iron Man of India, is to be built at the Sadhu-Bet Island, approximately 3.5kms south of Sardar Sarovar Dam at Kevadia in the Narmada district of Gujarat. This inspiring memorial site, with a number of edu-tainment components, is between the Satpuda and Vindhyachal Ranges rising weir Narmada River, impounded by Garudeshwar, the Sardar Sarovar Dam and the town of Kevadia. The majesty of this grand monument will be enhanced by a picturesque backdrop. Its unique location will prove to be beneficial for eco-tourism and regional development.

The ‘Statue of Unity’ is a dream project of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It symbolizes Patel’s impeccable work of uniting the disintegrated groups of nearly 565 princely states after the independence and building the Indian State. It stands as a tribute to the extraordinary administrative skills and bravery shown by the then home minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in uniting India after the bloody and painful partition. The Sardar’s 182 meters high first of its kind statue will undoubtedly lead to development of tourism with tourists inflow from all across the globe to visit India to admire its beauty and salute the man behind the Indian spirit and unity.

The work order for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pet project ‘Statue of Unity’ the world’s tallest statue of India’s first home minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, has been issued by the Gujarat government to leading engineering company Larsen and Toubro (L&T). Work on the 182-metre tall statue of Sardar Patel is to be completed at a cost of Rs 2,979 crore, which is far more than the total sum of Rs 700 crores allocated so far. But, by declaring it a National project, the government has ensured speedy construction and adequate funding to the project.

“This huge construction work will be completed in four years at a cost of Rs 2,979 crore. The contract has been given to the country’s leading construction company Larsen and Toubro”, said Gujarat Chief Minister Smt. Anandiben Patel. Rs 1347 crore will be spent on the main statue, Rs 235 crore will be spent on the exhibition hall and convention centre, while Rs 83 crore will be spent on the bridge connecting the memorial to the main land and Rs 657 crore would be spent to maintain the structure until 15 years after it is completed. The 182-metre-tall ‘Statue of Unity’, which would be double the size of New York’s ‘Statue of Liberty’ (93 metres), would inspire future generations. The project will include an exhibition hall and audio- visual presentation on the life of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, which will become the centre of attraction for tourists from the all over the world. 75,000 cubic metres of concrete, 5,700 metric tonne of steel structure, 18,500 steel rods and 22,500 metric tonne of bronze will be used for the project. It goes without saying that the ‘Statue of Unity’ project will generate employment in the tribal area of Narmada district as well as boost the tourism sector.

The project was launched by the former Gujarat Chief Minister and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on October 31, 2013, on Sardar Patel’s birth anniversary. Shri Modi had also launched a country wide campaign to collect iron to build the ‘Statue of Unity’ and the Gujarat government has claimed that iron was collected from around seven lakh villages across the nation.

It’s indeed a moment of pride for Gujarat that a leader from its soil is getting the honour of getting erected at an unprecedented height. No wonder the whole Gujarat would love to bow before him. But, restricting Sardar Patel to Gujarat will be a dishonour to his work. His work, although started from the state, steadily crossed all the borders to leave an impact over the world and humanity in general. The words of Sardar Patel still resonate all over the world therefore there is no wonder this project was declared as a national one. We hope that the world would see it truly as a national project not a political one and every Indian takes pride in it.

The proposed height of the world’s biggest statue is almost double the height of New York’s world famous ‘Statue of Liberty’ and five times high than the Rio de Janerio’s statue of Christ the Redeemer. It will even be taller than the Sardar Sarovar dam. The statue is neither meant for merely taking pride in its magnitude nor will it stand like a silent memorial. Rather a special work plan has been designed to make this statue a vibrant working centre. The ‘Statue of Unity’ is being built not only to remember India’s freedom struggle but also to inculcate Sardar Patels’s visionary ideology of unity, patriotism, inclusive growth and good governance.

This statue will soon be developed into a fully functional economic centre which will connect people, provide health and education facilities, run various developmental activities for tribal population in the region. An agriculture research centre will also be established within it. Due to this project, Narmada district will have modern infrastructure which will benefit the district as well as the state. Modern infrastructure will give a boost to industrial development in the district. Various environment friendly industries can be established in the region which will not only provide employment to the local people but also help improve their standard of living. Farmers will also be benefited once the agricultural and bio-technological research centres are set up in the region. Last but not least the establishment of the marvelous statue will rejuvenate tourism industry.

The government envisages making the statue a vibrant centre of development. Although the project has been criticized in some quarters as wastage of resources and money but if the purpose behind the project gets served then it will certainly emerge as a modern centre for development for our country. Once completed, the iconic statue would indeed attract tourists, scientists, businessmen, intellectuals and researchers from across the world and project India’s a new identity in the world. Just like Sardar’s spirit and will, the statue would surpass the rest of the mute memorials in the world by being a vibrant economic centre.

New Delhi, October 30, 2014: Abhinav Bindra, ace shooter and the country’s only individual Olympic Gold medalist, has been elected Chairman of the International Shooting Sport Federation’s (ISSF) Athletes Committee. The ISSF, which is the world body representing the sport of shooting, confirmed this today in a letter, a copy of which was marked to the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI), the representative body of the sport in India. Abhinav, will be the first Indian shooter to be bestowed with this honour. By virtue of being Chairman of the Athletes Committee, Abhinav will also now become a member of the Administrative Council of the ISSF.

Reacting to the development, Abhinav Bindra said, “It is a great honour, not only for me personally but also for the country as a whole. Athletes make the sport come alive. As such, this honour comes with the great responsibility of representing the views and concerns of shooting athletes from across the globe appropriately, effectively and in a balanced manner towards the betterment of the sport, and I look forward to doing justice towards serving that end.”

The NRAI President, Raninder Singh, said, “ It is a matter of great pride for the whole Indian shooting fraternity that Abhinav has been elected to such a prestigious position. He has always been eager to do his bit for the athletes and the sport of shooting. He has also been very proactive within the NRAI itself in trying to raise the bar of Indian shooting continuously. We are confident that he will shine as always in this new responsibility as well and wish him all the very best.”

It can be recalled that Abhinav was re-elected member of the ISSF Athletes Committee in elections held last month in Granada, Spain for a second time.

Indore Fans celebrated Shah Rukh’s Birthday with a unique cake

30102014

Indore Fans celebrated Shah Rukh’s Birthday
with a unique cake made with the city’s famous snacks !

 

 

Everyone knows that the King Khan commands an enormous fan following across the globe and his die-hard fans often do special things for their heartthrob every year on his birthday. This year too, he received a pleasant surprise ahead of his birthday at the recent Indore auditions of Zee TV’s tour in search of India’s happiest dancer – Dil Se Naachein Indiawaale.

SRK fans who came to watch the show brought something which was quite unheard of- a gigantic cake made of Indore’s famous snacks (farsan), which became quite the center of attraction for everyone at the auditorium. This three-tier cake was made with a lot of precision that it was difficult to imagine how anyone could have made it at home! It look liked the job of a professional chef to say the least! Along with the audience, Shah Rukh’s fellow judges on the show – Deepika, Boman, Abhishek, Vivaan and Farah surprised him too by doing a special performance on his blockbuster songs. An overwhelmed Shah Rukh was extremely touched by his fans in Indore and thanked them for making his birthday so special.

To watch all this masti and more, stay tuned to ‘Maruti Suzuki Alto K 10 Dil Se Naachein Indiawaale Co-powered byAskmebazaar.com & L’Oreal Paris Fall Repair 3X’ every Saturday and Sunday at 9 PM, only on Zee TV.

Spotlight on… Renewable Energy  spotlight

Renewable energy has been a long term focus of our work developing collaborations between the UK and India – with projects and events across a range of technologies. Just this week, we’ve had a delegation of UK experts on wave and tidal energy visiting India. This follows a similar delegation earlier in the year on offshore wind, and a joint workshop in South Africa on biofuels. Renewable energies have also been the subject for significant joint research funding, including two of the Industrial R&D grants awarded recently. For a full picture of the funded projects, please see RCUK’s summary. And, with the food-water-energy nexus identified as a priority for the Newton Bhabha programme, that support is likely to continue. Let us know if you have ideas for future events that we could help with!

Dear partners and friends of Cologne,In order to make Cologne even better known as a travel destination, we have launched a broad range of activities. One project is the presentation of Cologne’s wonderful range of cultural attractions in the Yearbook of Cultural Brands. This is an outstanding platform for coming into contact with potential sponsorship partners. To advertise our marketing focus for 2014/2015 we produced a video clip on the theme of “Holy Cologne”, one of further videos on central touristic topics of Cologne.

Kind regards
Josef Sommer

The “cultural brand” quality seal

The Cologne Tourist Board has cooperated with the Cultural Department of the city of Cologne to place an advertorial in the Yearbook of Cultural Brands 2014/2015. The yearbook serves as an expert reference work for interested companies who would like to make a name for themselves by sponsoring a cultural event or institution. Through this cooperation Cologne has received the right for one year to call itself a “cultural brand”.»

Cologne Tourist Board trains new city guides

The Cologne Tourist Board provides more than 7,500 city tours for visitors every year. It offers tours based on over 100 different themes in 15 languages for groups. In order to further expand this core area of its expertise, the Cologne Tourist Board will be training new city guides starting in January 2015.»

15th Museum Night in Cologne

On Museum Night in Cologne, which will take place on 8 November 2014, a total of 46 museums and art venues will open their doors from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. This will be the 15th time that art connoisseurs will be able to enjoy the works of world-class artists, newcomers and Old Masters and discover the glamour of renowned museums as well as new exhibition venues, all in one night.»

“Holy Cologne” in a video clip

An initial impression of the wealth of religious and cultural highlights that are connected with the theme of “Holy Cologne” is provided by a video clip produced by the Cologne Tourist Board to advertise its marketing focus for 2014/2015. It will be followed by further videos focusing on central themes related to Cologne.»

Luis Miranda takes over as Chairman of the Board at Centre for Civil Society

Former Private Equity leader Luis Miranda takes over as Chairman of the Board at Centre for Civil Society

New Delhi-based Centre for Civil Society (CCS) has named Luis Miranda, former Chairman of IDFC Private Equity as the Chairman of its Board of Trustees. Luis takes over from Ashish Dhawan, Founder and CEO of Central Square Foundation (CSF) who formerly ran private equity fund, ChrysCapital.

Luis founded IDFC Private Equity in 2002 and served as the Chief Executive Officer and President at the firm until 2010. He was earlier a senior member of the start-up team at HDFC Bank. He is Senior Advisor, Morgan Stanley Infrastructure and is involved with various non-profits related to human rights, education and health care. Luis got his MBA from Chicago Booth, where he was influenced by Chicago School economists George Stigler, Gary Becker and Gene Fama.

Talking about the strategic role of think-tanks like Centre for Civil Society, Luis said “India still ranks abysmally low on a number of world rankings on important indicators like ease of doing business, economic freedom, competitiveness and innovation; in fact, it’s ranking has declined over the last few years. Modi’s recently launched ‘Make in India’ campaign, Jan Dhan Yojana for financial inclusion of hitherto unbanked Indians and the abolition of Planning Commission are welcome steps towards ensuring ‘maximum governance, minimum government’. However, this ecosystem needs to be complemented by organisations like Centre for Civil Society, which could potentially offer interventions to change systems in India and work on public policy solutions to make the country more market-oriented.”

In his new role as Chairman of Board of Trustees of CCS, Luis will provide strategic direction and energize CCS’ initiatives in education, livelihood and policy training as the organisation works toward promoting choice and accountability across private and public sectors.

On his appointment, Luis said “CCS has always stood for the basic right to freedom and choice. What is unique about CCS, is that we continue to relentlessly raise these ideas to ensure that they do not get lost in public policy discourses where individual rights are trampled upon, where markets are undermined and big government leads to inefficient allocation of resources. We remain focused on engaging more meaningfully with policy and opinion leaders to bring about social change through sound public policies.”
