Almost 53% Delhiites feel okay with undergoing cosmetic surgery to improve looks

From smoothening the skin and erasing wrinkles to getting a sculpted physique or a slim waist, the desire to look like a magazine cover model is not just a teenage whim anymore.A recent study, Cosmetic Plastic Surgery and Consciousness of Appearance Survey-2015, has revealed a growing aspiration amongst residents of Delhi-NCR across all age groups to look their sharpest. While 41% of the women surveyed believe that cosmetic surgery is the most effective way to reshape the body, the men were not behind as 37 % of them agreed it was so.Also, 47% of the women and 42 % of the men who took part in the survey believe that plastic surgery helps attract potential partners. As many as 52 % of the women respondents felt that plastic surgery helps increase professional opportunities while among men, 37 % believed so.The survey, which was conducted online from October 10 to 24, covered 709 people (193 men and 516 women) aged 25 years and older, including employed professionals, housewives, students and retired professionals.While 51.7 % of the respondents agreed or somewhat agreed that there has been a shift in the attitude of Indians towards plastic surgery, 50 % of them said that they would consider going for plastic surgery in the future.More than half of those who took part in the survey, 53 %, believe that spending money on improving one’s appearance is an investment. The report was released by the Department of Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery at Max Super Speciality Hospital here.”Cosmetic surgery has existed in India for more than four decades now, but Indians continued to refer to it in hush-hush tones. “53 % of the people surveyed view cosmetic surgery as an investment. This is definite proof that people are now looking at plastic surgery as a valid scientific means of improving appearance,” said Dr Sunil Choudhary, Director, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery at the hospital, who had conducted the survey.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

Delhi High Court says school buses cannot be forced to ply during odd even rule

The odd even scheme is just a day away, but the schools in the national capital have raised concerns over how the school buses that have been procured by the Delhi government to aid their initiative will be used. With the lack of clarity still prevailing, the Delhi High Court observed that the Delhi government cannot coerce, compel or otherwise force private, unaided and recognised schools to provide their buses during the 15-day period whilst the scheme is on.In order to successfully implement the odd even scheme to combat pollution for a trial period of two weeks, the Delhi government announced 4,000 ‘general’ buses would ply the streets of which around 2,000 would be procured from schools. According to a notice issued by the Department of Education (DoE) dated December 18, the Delhi government not only declared a two-week holiday during this period, but also announced the requisitioning of school buses to augment the DTC fleet.A circular issued by transport minister Gopal Rai on December 21, requested the schools to register their buses at the nearest DDE with copies of the Contract of Carriage, Insurance and Fitness Certificates. According to the same circular, failure to comply with the directions would be dealt with seriously.A few schools objected to this forcible closure and the government’s demand to use the buses as well. “This commandeering of the school buses is in complete violation of Article 14, 19 and 21 read with Article 300A of the Constitution,” says advocate Pramod Gupta. The lawyer represented the petitioners Action Committee of Unaided Recognised Private Schools that comprises around 400 private and unaided schools. The school authorities were also concerned about the school buses being used for purposes other than ferrying students, teachers and other school staff which would be in violation of the terms and conditions of the insurance policies taken out on the vehicles concerned.”The RTE is there to regulate school education and matters of education for children. It cannot be used to direct school buses — properties of autonomous bodies — to the DTDC for the implementation of a government scheme,” Gupta further argued. Recognizing the matter, Judge Hima Kohli who presided over the bench questioned the petitioner which school was forced or coerced to which there was no answer. Taking cognizance of the matter she further directed the government not to coerce, force or compel the schools to provide buses.Responding to the allegations, standing council for the Delhi Government Rahul Mehra stated that so far 1,700 school buses have registered on a voluntary basis. With around 400 school apparently not willing to part with their fleet – the number of buses may figure more than 1,000 – it is difficult to quantify how this will affect the number of buses that will actually ply on the streets during the coming two weeks.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

Delhi odd-even rule: Trial run to be conducted on Thursday

“Convince your parents, relatives and friends to follow the odd-even scheme. We are to do this not out of any imposition, but because it is important for our health and life. If you see anyone violating the odd-even scheme, just ask that person to go back home. If the same person receives 10 such remarks in a day, it would stir his conscience and persuade him to keep his car off the road,” Kejriwal said, addressing the students at Rajkiya Pratibha Vikas Vidyalaya in north Delhi’s Civil Lines.

Gopal Subramaniam agrees to head DDCA probe panel; asks AAP govt to televise inquiry proceedings

Earlier, the Delhi assembly at a special session passed a resolution to set up a commission of inquiry to probe the alleged irregularities in the working of the DDCA. Kejriwal also urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to sack Jaitley for his involvement in the matters of the city’s cricketing association. Jaitley, who headed the DDCA for years, however, has rejected the allegations levelled against him.

Maneka Gandhi reveals plan to modernise anganwadis

Gandhi also said that she has written to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to include more than one bogey for women in metro trains. “The trains are very crowded, and with the women’s bogey being the first in a train, it is a bit difficult for them,” she said. She said that she has written to ask for three bogies in longer trains and two in smaller ones. “Another scheme I really want to see take off is free bus passes for women over 60,” she said.

After Congress mouthpiece says Sonia’s father had fascist link, party calls magazine ‘defunct’

The AICC spokesperson distanced the party from Nirupam’s act of sacking the magazine editor. “What does he do in his personal capacity is his responsibility. In his personal capacity, he can be editor of any magazine and decide to keep or sack any employee. The party has nothing to do with it,” he said. In Delhi, Congress leaders Salman Khurshid and Raj Babbar said that the issue should be seriously looked into.

From Dadri to India’s Daughter: The biggest outrages of 2015

The flipside of these 24/7 outrages was that a lot important events weren’t covered by mainstream media, which has limited resources. Hopefully, we will mature as a a society and outrage about things that really matter.

The Delhi government has ordered a commission of inquiry and appointed former solicitor general of India Gopal Subramaniam as its head. “The Delhi government does not have any jurisdiction to order a commission of inquiry in the first place. They could not find anything against Jaitley, who has always had a clean image and now AAP is stooping to such low levels,” said Shrikant Sharma, national secretary, BJP.

If all goes well, PM will go to SAARC summit next year: BJP

It was at a lunch hosted by a union minister on a sunny Christmas Day that BJP spokespersons got messages at 1.39 pm that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was going to meet his Pakistani Counterpart Nawaz Sharif on his way from Kabul to Delhi.”This came as a pleasant surprise. We felt the Prime Minister had shown that he could take such out of the box decisions,” said a party leader. The conversation, which had till then revolved around former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee whose place the BJP leaders had visited earlier in the day on his birthday, turned to Modi.”Looking forward to meeting Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif where I will drop by on my way back to Delhi,” the message conveyed to the party spokespersons from Modi said.Just minutes before that external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj got a call from Modi to tell her that during their telephone conversation, Sharif suggested that he drop in for tea and he had agreed. This was conveyed to BJP spokespersons when Swaraj called them to the ministry at 4 pm. She told spokespersons about the development and said that it was a welcome surprise for all. Swaraj said it was a spontaneous reaction and appreciated it saying there was no need for formality in relations with neighbours, spokespersons said.The Prime Minister’s Lahore visit not only created a sense of euphoria in the party but changed the mood as he stole the headlines, pushing BJP MP Kirti Azad’s suspension over the DDCA row to the backdrop.Party veteran LK Advani, who along with three other senior leaders had met a day after Azad’s suspension, and was critical of the leadership after the Bihar debacle, came out in support of Modi’s initiative. “The efforts initiated by Vajpayee ji, should be taken forward by present leaders like Modi ji and others, regarding the relationship of India and Pakistan…. The friendship between both the nations must get stronger so that both can get rid of the terror outfits which have been created in last few days,” Advani said.The BJP, which has taken a tough ideological position vis–a-vis Pakistan, has been unflinching in its support for Modi’s surprise gesture. A party leader said the Prime Minister was convinced that India cannot be a world power unless it showed flexibility in its approach towards neighbours. SAARC was the “larger circle” through which he could resolve bilateral ties, the leader said.Speaking of the ideological position of the BJP, the leader said even the RSS, the party’s ideological mentor, has accepted the alliance with the PDP in Jammu and Kashmir.On Saturday, BJP fielded party spokesperson MJ Akbar to brief the media on Modi’s Lahore stopover. “This gives us all hopes that there will be one happy consequence. And, if all goes well, the Prime Minister will undertake the visit to SAARC Summit next year,” said Akbar.Describing as extraordinary the way the peace process has been revived, he said it gave “another opportunity to write a new chapter in a difficult history. But it cannot be written by one. It requires two authors reading from the same page.”Akbar said the PM had created a “transformative moment in the subcontinent” with
his “courage, vision, skill and imagination” and that the pursuit of peace in the complex region with its history of fraught ties between the two countries required such courage.Dismissing the Congress criticism as “childish”, he said the move was “symptomatic” of the diplomatic thaw in the sub-continent”.However, in an interview released on Saturday, BJP general secretary Ram Madhav reiterated the RSS stand about “akhand Bharat”. The party was evasive on it, with one leader saying there was democracy.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

Except Left, Opposition parties decry PM’s move BJP says it’s pleasant surprise

In Jammu and Kashmir, while both chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and former CM and opposition National Conference working president Omar Abdullah welcomed talks. But Omar called for sustainability in the talks, which should address skewed issues like Kashmir and other disputes once for all. In a statement here, Mufti who is recuperating after a health issue, , Mufti said he was delighted by Modi’s visit. “This is an evolutionary process and step in the right direction. It indicates Prime Minister’s resolve to enter into a long-term strategic partnership with Pakistan,” he stated. His aides recall October 15, meeting with the PM, where Mufti had conveyed that a peace with Pakistan was linked to development and progress in his state. “This initiative, besides being a great step towards improvement of bilateral relations, will also give impetus to the concept of SAARC,” he added.Congress, however, attacked the PM, alleging his endavour was not for promoting India’s national interest or to take forward the roadmap to engage with it on tackling terror but to promote private business interests. In a hurriedly convened press conference, Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma asked what assurances he got on bringing back or punishing perpetrators of 26/11 Mumbai attacks, especially Zakiu Rehman Lakhvi, and on dismantling terror syndicates in Pakistan acting against India.”Questioning the intent behind his visit, Congress rejected claims of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj that the Prime Minister’s move was ‘statesman-like’ and said it was “pre-arranged” by a businessman.”We are very clear that the Prime Minister is there to promote only private business interests and not India’s national interest which should be supreme.”Diplomacy is serious, it must have gravitas and predictability. It cannot be frivolous, otherwise it will implode on Shri Narendra Modi’s face,” he told reporters. “This unannounced visit cannot be termed ‘statesman-like. Diplomacy must have seriousness and gravitas,” he said.The Congress leader questioned how many Prime Ministers or heads of states make such detours to wish birthdays, asking if any Indian Prime Minister has landed in another country in this manner in the last 67 years. He also slammed Modi and BJP for adopting a “hawkish approach” during the UPA government and termed any meeting by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh with his Pakistani counterpart as “anti-national”. The JD (U) leader K C Tiyagi said the “friendship and betrayal cannot go hand in hand” “I am stunned and shocked. At this moment, I can think of beheaded Hemraj,” said Tyagi.Describing it a “pleasant surprise”, BJP leader Tarun Vijay called it a best Christmas gift. “PM’s move will help isolate anti-India and anti-peace forces in Pakistan. It will work like a miracle. It has clearly shown, who wants peace in the region and has put onus on other side to reciprocate, ” he said. Another spokesperson Sidharath Nag Singh said the PM’s move was one of out of box diplomatic venture, as he had invited the leaders of South Asia nations to his oath taking ceremony.

Officials at the NCB, by their own admission say that the high number of cases this year is reflective of successful interception by its intelligence officials, where as the real number of drugs sent through mail services within and outside India could be much higher. “We are imparting training to private courier franchises and the government agencies on how to identify and what to look for while dealing with parcels. There is much more awareness among the staff at courier and postal offices to be alert and this has helped us in high interception,” says Rohit Sharma, Delhi zonal director, NCB.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee approach revisited, says moderate Hurriyat

“This is an evolutionary process and a step in the right direction. It indicates Prime Minister’s resolve to enter into a long-term strategic partnership with Pakistan. Hope that the meeting between the two leaders will provide the much-needed momentum to the Comprehensive Bilateral Dialogue for peaceful resolution of all issues,” Mufti, who is convalescing in a Delhi hospital, said in a statement.

He asked for ‘specific reasons’ for the disciplinary action against him by the party. Azad earlier said he would respond to the suspension notice today with the help of party leader Subramanian Swamy. “Have received notice, will respond to it. Subramanian Swamy has told me that he will help me in drafting reply to the notice,” Azad told the media here.Meanwhile, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has confirmed that he would assist Azad in replying to the notice. “I confirm this that I will assist Kirti Azad on the draft notice from the party.

CBI claimed to have got materials that indicate irregularities in the recruitment process done in Delhi government through ICSIL, and said it is contemplating to expand the ambit of probe against Rajendra Kumar, principal secretary to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.Agency sources said they had recovered four files pertaining to recruitment in the Delhi government. In one of the files pertaining to data entry operators’ recruitment, several pages were found to be missing. This prompted the agency to dig deep into the recruitment process. CBI is currently probing five instances of alleged corruption against Kumar spanning over a period of five years from 2009 to 2014 when he served in the Delhi government in various capacities.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The sources said probe may be expanded further and may involve much more officers and recruitment processes as well. They said nothing has been finalised and any further action will depend on details which might emerge during further questioning of Kumar. Kumar will again be called for questioning in connection with the case as the agency has found five audio clippings in which he is purportedly giving oral instructions to the official concerned to allegedly manipulate contract terms, they said.The sources claimed the purported clippings recovered from email account of Kumar indicate his influence over officers which have not been named in the FIR and they may be included in the charge-sheet.The CBI said it has registered a case against Kumar and others on allegations against the officer that he abused his official position by “favouring a particular firm in the last few years in getting tenders from Delhi government departments”.Kumar has been booked under 120-B of IPC (criminal conspiracy), and 13(2), 13(1)(d) of the Prevention of Corruption Act (Criminal conspiracy, criminal misconduct etc) for allegedly favouring a private company in five contracts worth Rs 9.5 crore during 2007-14.”The accused allegedly facilitated award of contracts worth Rs 9.50 crore (approx) to the said company through ICSIL (Intelligent Communication Systems India Limited) and misused his official position as public servant.”The accused were instrumental in award of projects to the said private company in Delhi Transco Ltd; Health and Family Welfare Department, GNCTD; Delhi Jal Board and Department of Trade and Taxes, GNCTD,” CBI had said in the statement after the registration of the case.

Here’s the full text of Arun Jaitley’s Facebook post.

On Thursday, Union Finance Minister launched an attack on Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal for his recent outbursts and called out Arvind Kejriwal for his unparliamentary language. Jaitley has also accused AAP govt and its supporters of lowering level of public discourse in the country. Jaitley’s attack comes at a time, when AAP has alleged him of being involved in DDCA scam and has even constituted an enquiry committee to probe the matter. BJP MP Kirti Azad has been suspended from the party for his harsh comments about Arun Jaitley.Here’s the full text of Arun Jaitley’s Facebook post: <!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>STRAY THOUGHTS AFTER THE WINTER SESSIONThe Winter Session of Parliament has just concluded yesterday. The Winter Session gives rise to a few legitimate thoughts which I must share.On Parliamentary Democracy:Parliamentary Democracy has been India’s foremost strength. Different shades of political opinions, regions, States, communities, tribes, all find their way in the decision making process in Parliament. Parliamentary protests are not unheard of in India. In extreme cases there are precedents of disturbance in the past. But the last two sessions have witnessed a clear stand of the Congress Party that Parliament shall not be allowed to function. Most of the congress leaders, in private, have expressed helplessness over the decision of their leadership that Parliament must be disturbed continuously. The moot question which arises for the Congress Party is, ‘how does India legislate?’ The Standing Committee mechanism which worked exceedingly well since 1993, has been weakened in the Rajya Sabha, by the House repeatedly appointing Select Committees, questioning the opinions of the Standing Committee. If this tendency continues, a successful institution of Standing Committee could be hurt. The Government, therefore, has adopted an alternative option of a Joint Committee to consider the Bankruptcy Law. There are other options being suggested, such as to pass legislation without a Standing Committee or drafting laws in a manner to fit them into the definition of Money Bills. The latter two are not preferred options. The Congress Party leadership must seriously explore that its disproportionate and irrational approach in dealing with Parliament is hurting institutions. If Pandit Nehru can be credited in the initial years of our democracy of having laid down of healthy precedents being established, the current generation in control of the Congress Party will find a place in history of having weakened what their ancestors established. Has the country not lost out by delaying the GST since the last year’s Budget Session? How far is it desirable to pass important legislations on the last day without discussion? Statistically, we have passed a law. But has Parliament applied its mind to the law?Vulgarity:Is vulgarity the new norm of Indian politics? I hope not.Some months ago a few Members of the Bharatiya Janata Party made statements which were not appreciated even by the Party. The Party President cautioned them and advised them to refrain from making such statements. The result of the caution are visible.What about the statements made by the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Delhi about the Prime Minister and others, both inside and outside Delhi Assembly? If any functionary of the Government of India were to use such language, it would witness a nationwide outrage. People in positions are expected to act with restraint. They cannot be outlandish.Vulgarity is not a right available to them. The political discourse cannot be couched in vulgar language. Falsehood delivered with vulgar overtones is not a substitute of truth. Lumpenisation of public discourse can never be high point of politics. Functionaries of the Delhi Government and its supporters have lowered the level of political discourse. They rely heavily on general falsehood without ever stating the specifics. The Aam Aadmi Party’s success in Delhi seems to have misled the Congress Party that vulgarity brings votes. Indian public opinion has a sense of fairness. It is time that public opinion expresses its outrage against the lowering of the level of public discourse.
