Talking parrots, goggles on board delay Air India flight

It was a bird-hit of a different kind. Air India flight AI 676, from Kolkata to Mumbai, got delayed by about an hour on Wednesday morning because of some caged parrots on board. As the parrots started whistling and talking continuously, passengers were irritated and fuming. Varsha Sethia, a marketing professional, who was on board the flight, said in a series of tweets: “ A passenger is carrying parrots on #AirIndia flight. And they are whistling! :)) Crew clueless why it was allowed.”<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>One of the passengers insisted that the parrots be off-loaded as he could get allergy from its dust and feathers. “Someone objected on grounds of allergy. Now bird de-boarded. Flight even more late. Everyone shouting,” Sethia said in her second tweet.After off loading the parrots, AI 676 took off about an hour later from the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Airport. An airline official said that a passenger carried two parrots, along with him, after complying with airline rules. They were kept in a cage in the passengers’ section. However, two co-passengers objected to the presence of parrots on health grounds. Hence, parrots were moved to the cargo section. Senior officers of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) said, generally, animals and birds of permissible species are allowed to be carried in cages and to be kept in the cargo section. On rare occasions, they can be carried in the passenger’s section but with health and vaccine certification from veterinarians. “Though it is not illegal, birds/animals are rarely taken in the passenger section,” said a senior Air India crew member.In the same flight, one of the passengers wearing goggles was asked to remove it by crew members, apparently due to safety reasons. “This flight is a live circus! Crew objected to a passenger wearing sunglasses for take off.Security reasons they say!,” Sethia further tweeted. An airline source said that one can stop a passenger from wearing goggles inside the flight only if he is a suspected criminal. “The crew member here has, obviously, over-reacted,” he said. The Air India official, who commented on the parrots, did not comment on the goggle episode.

Andheri couple travels from Mumbai to Goa- by foot!

A regular walker in Mumbai, Aanchal, has been simulating the same distance as the final walk over the last three months, in order to train specifically for this project.

Aanchal Dhara and her husband Prashant, have undertaken a one-of-a-kind journey, where the duo will travel 582 kms over a span of 26 days—by foot.‘Two feet & a dream’ is the first project under the duo’s initiative, The Audacious Project, about their journey from Andheri to Morjim Beach in Goa. Aanchal, along with her 3 crew consisting of three people, intend to highlight the deplorable conditions of Indian villages through the lens of her Canon 5D Mark 3. “Prashant and I founded The Audacious Project because we personally have many things on our ‘offbeat’ list that we would like to tick off,” said 30-year-old Aanchal, a journalism graduate from Delhi University, who currently resides in Andheri. “We strongly felt that our busy, urban lifestyles take us away from what we’d rather be doing and so we created a brand that promotes following our passions, whatever they may be. We decided to create audacious, life changing experiences where we’d invite people to join us and experience a little of what it feels to act on our respective dreams and passions.”<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>
Aanchal has a support team of her husband Prashant, who is a directing the documentary the duo are shooting about the walk, Ranjeet, their cameraman and Subhash, their car driver and Man Friday. “Our route has been the NH4 mainly,” said Aanchal. “I walked from Mumbai to Pune via the old highway, then on NH4 to Satara and Kolhapur. We left the highway just after Nipani and made our way through Amboli Ghat to Sawantwadi and finally on to Goa via NH 17.”Aanchal and her crew had planned an itinerary that required them to cover 30 kms every day. “So, on a daily basis, I walk 8 hours, plus an hour and half assigned for breaks, plus some stoppage time for shooting,” she said. “We start daily at 6 am till about 1 pm and take a long lunch break till 3 pm. This is so that we can avoid walking when the sun is at its peak. Then we continue till 6.30 pm or 7 pm every evening. We’re staying in budget hotels along the way, usually next to or near the highway so our travel time to and fro is reduced.”
A regular walker in Mumbai, Aanchal, has been simulating the same distance as the final walk over the last three months, in order to train specifically for this project. She has also been indulging in strength training at the gym twice a week. “On this trip, we’ve had the opportunity to meet and hear the stories of so many Indians from various parts of the country,” said Aanchal. “It has reinforced our belief that people will go several extra miles to follow their dream. We also learnt that people are warm and are ready to help and support a stranger in need without expecting anything in return. The grit and determination of men and women across this country is what makes us a great nation.”

After bitter fight, Shiv Sena, BJP to share power in Kalyan-Dombivali

A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting between state BJP president Raosaheb Danve and senior Sena leader and state Industries Minister Subhash Desai here

Putting behind the rancour of bitterly-fought Kalyan-Dombivali Municipal Corporation (KDMC) elections, Shiv Sena and BJP on Friday decided to strike a deal to share power in the civic body following a hung verdict.A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting between state BJP president Raosaheb Danve and senior Sena leader and state Industries Minister Subhash Desai here. Today’s meeting came after a round of talks held between Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Sena leader and state PWD Minister Eknath Shinde at the former’s official residence ‘Varsha’ here. Sena had emerged as the single largest party bagging 52 seats in the 122-member KDMC but fell short of a majority. BJP came second winning 42 seats, improving on its earlier tally of nine. With the decision to share power, the combined strength of Sena and BJP would be 94.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Congress won four, while NCP got two seats in the polls that took place last Sunday. Raj Thackeray-led MNS managed to get 9 seats while BSP and MIM won one seat each. Nine independent candidates also emerged as winners. The election to the post of Mayor will be held on November 11, while the last date of filing nomination papers is November 7. The election to the Mayor’s post will be held by secret ballot. According to sources, Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena has offered a power-sharing formula to BJP to end the deadlock in KDMC.Sources said the power-sharing formula entails that Sena will get the Mayor’s post for four years, while BJP will get it for one year. The chairmanship of the standing committee will be held by BJP for three years and the remaining two years by Sena. The formula worked out is similar to the one the two parties share in Aurangabad Municipal Corporation.Meanwhile, in a statement issued by BJP this evening, the party said further talks between the two parties will be held by Minister for Finance and Planning Sudhir Mungantiwar (BJP) and PWD Minister Eknath Shinde (Sena).After the two leaders work out the modalities and arrive at a power-sharing formula, the top leadership of both the parties are expected to give their final approval.

India to declassify Subhash Bose files

India’s government will begin declassifying crucial files on revolutionary leader Subhash Chandra Bose from 23 January, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said.

Mamata Banerjee-trumped Narendra Modi does a volte-face, decides to declassify Netaji secret files

After an hour-long interaction with 35 members of Netaji’s family, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he sees “no reason to strangle history” and “those nations who forget history also lose the power to create it”.

Trumped by West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, who announced declassification of files on Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose last month, the BJP government at the Centre followed suit by announcing staggered declassification of secret files that it has in its possession.After an hour-long interaction with 35 members of Netaji’s family, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he sees “no reason to strangle history” and “those nations who forget history also lose the power to create it”.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Prime Minister declared that the process of declassification of files will begin on January 23, next year, that happens to be the birthday of Netaji.According to speculations, the disclosure of secret files could lead to embarrassment of the Congress party for keeping Netaji’s life, particularly those relating to his mysterious disappearance, under a veil of secrecy.Grapevine also claims that it could put a question mark on India’s first Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru’s conduct vis-a-vis Netaji.However, to the credit of Congress, it has already made clear that it has nothing to fear about any disclosure and the government should take its own call on declassification.Incidentally, the decision comes as a volte-face by PM Modi’s office, as only in November 2014, toeing the line of previous governments, it refused to disclose Netaji files citing that “the files would prejudicially affect relations with foreign countries”.In reply to RTI activist Subhash Chandra Agarwal, the PMO further said that these files are exempt from disclosure under section 8(1) (a) of the RTI Act.It says “information, disclosure of which would prejudicially affect the sovereignty and integrity of India, the security strategic, scientific or economic interests of the state, relation with foreign state or lead to incitement of an offence.”However, it remains unclear whether the Central government will declassify all the files it has on Netaji in its possession or will keep some files wrapped in the secret cover that could keep the controversy surrounding Netaji’s disappearance simmering.As per the RTI reply, PMO has 39 secret files in its possession. Besides, there are some more files that are in the possession of the union home ministry. A decision will be taken once the union home ministry finishes vetting all the secret files.Modi also agreed to the suggestion of Netaji’s family to initiate the process of getting hold of files with foreign governments and declassify them too.Modi told the family members that he would not only write to the governments of foreign nations that were visited by Netaji, but also take up the matter during his meetings with foreign leaders, beginning with Russia in December.As Netaji had travelled to several countries including China, Taiwan, Singapore and Russia during tumultuous period close to India’s independence, the PM is expected to write to all these countries soon. He may also write to UK that had most of the information, being the ruling colonial power.

Mamata Banerjee

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday asked the Central government to declassify all files related to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.”We have already declassified all files that were with us. Now, the Central government should do the same,” she told reporters after a meeting with Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.Sixty-four secret files relating to Netaji which could help throw light on his mysterious disappearance — an enduring enigma for seven decades — were released by the West Bengal government on September 18. Banerjee said copies of the CD containing the 64 files related to Netaji have already been given to President, Vice- President, Prime Minister, Union Home Minister and the Speaker of Lok Sabha.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Altogether 89 files related to Bose are with the Central government. The Ministry of External Affairs is holding on to 29 files and the Prime Minister’s Office has 60 files related to Netaji. Some files were already declassified by the Central government and sent to the National Archive.Banerjee said whenever she visits Delhi, she meets the Union Home Minister and Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.”Last time I could not do it because there was heavy floods in Bengal,” she said. The Chief Minister said she has urged the Union Home Minister to provide financial assistance to West Bengal for flood relief works.”Disaster management fund is with the Union Home Ministry. A Central team has gone to our state after the flood and they have submitted the report also. We have already spent some money from the state’s fund.

Never sought pardon from Maharashtra Governor or requested anyone to do so: Sanjay Dutt

Dutt’s advocates Hitesh Jain and Subhash Jadhav, in a statement released on Friday said the recent articles stating that Maharashtra Governor has turned down the actor’s plea for pardon, are based on an application made by retired Supreme Court Justice Markandey Katju seeking pardon for Dutt and other convicts in the case

Sanjay Dutt

Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, who is currently serving his five year jail term after being convicted in the 1993 bomb blasts case, on Friday made it clear that he had never filed for pardon with the Maharashtra Governor nor had he requested anyone else to do so on his behalfDutt’s advocates Hitesh Jain and Subhash Jadhav, in a statement released on Friday said the recent articles stating that Maharashtra Governor has turned down the actor’s plea for pardon, are based on an application made by retired Supreme Court Justice Markandey Katju seeking pardon for Dutt and other convicts in the case. “No such application for grant of pardon was ever made by Sanjay Dutt or his family members to the Governor seeking pardon. Further, Sanjay Dutt or his family members never approached former Supreme Court Justice Katju for making an application for pardon on behalf of Dutt,” the statement said.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>”Justice Katju has suo moto made this application for pardon not only for Dutt but also for other convicts in the case like Zaibunissa Kazi,” it added. The statement said that Dutt has almost finished his imprisonment and shall be a free man soon.Katju had petitioned Maharashtra Governor Vidyasagar Rao to pardon Dutt as he was “not a terrorist” and had only “erred”. Rao had two days back rejected the pardon plea following the advice of the Maharashtra Home Department which had recommended that granting Dutt pardon would set a bad precedent.56-year-old Dutt was convicted in 2007 by a special TADA court under the Arms Act for possession of arms and sentenced to five years rigorous imprisonment. Dutt had spent 18 months in jail in 1996 after his arrest.In May 2013, the actor surrendered after the Supreme Court upheld his conviction and sentence. The actor has since then been lodged in the Yerwada Central prison at Pune.After he was sent to Yerwada in May 2013, Dutt had been out on parole twice and an equal number of times on furlough. In October 2013, he was out on furlough for 14 days, which was extended by a fortnight. In January 2014, a 30-day parole was extended by another 30 days. In December 2014, he was granted a 14-day furlough.Since August 27, 2015, he has been again out on furlough. Dutt has spent nearly 30 months in prison already and is due to walk out as a free man in February 2016. In his petition, Katju had said, “The only charge on which Sanjay Dutt has been found guilty is the charge of having in his possession a prohibited weapon”.Katju had also emphasised that he was in no way questioning the Supreme Court verdict. The former Supreme Court Justice had written that though the imprisonment of five years for possessing the weapon was correct, Dutt had suffered enough after spending 18 months in jail before he was sentenced in March 2013 and thus his would be a fit case for pardon.

“We will soon declare a policy. These units have been closed for economic and technical reasons. But, they have experience. Maharashtra has around 1 lakh engineering graduates who pass out from around 1,000 engineering colleges and try their luck in the job market. This is a huge number…we will try to establish linkages between the industry and these engineers,” said Maharashtra industries minister Subhash Desai.

It is necessary to link the two,” he explained, adding that industries had also offered to place orders with these units to promote them while some educational institutions had also offered to chip in with training.Desai added that some of these fresh engineers were full of innovative ideas and were planning to get into entrepreneurship. He also stressed on the need to promote start up units like in the United States. The state industries department is planning a “start-up policy” to promote a culture of entrepreneurship and innovation in the manufacturing and information technology and IT enabled services sector.

This is a rise from the 19,814 units in 2013-14 which involved investments of Rs 6,358 crore and employment of 24.8 lakh people.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said he will host over 50 family members of Subhash Chandra Bose at his residence next month but skipped any reference to declassification of secret files related to Netaji which is being demanded after West Bengal did so a few days back. In his monthly radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’, Modi spoke about a number of issues, including those he had highlighted during the previous episodes like giving up of LPG subsidy, Swacch Bharat campaign, promotion of khadi besides pushing for greater voter participation and paying tributes to soldiers on the 50th anniversary of 1965 India-Pak war.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>During the 30-minute programme — 12th edition marking completion of one year of ‘Mann Ki Baat’ — he recalled that in May he had met some family members of Bose during a visit to Kolkata. “I got an opportunity to spend some time with them.

Is not reflective of people’s power Governments also should learn that beyond the realms of government, there is a big capable, energetic and committed society. The more the governments remain connected to the society, the more it can work as a catalyst to bring changes in the society,” he said.

The Central Government on Monday filed an affidavit in Supreme Court seeking to keep political parties away from the Right to Information (RTI) ambit. The apex court in July sought a response from the Centre and six leading political parties on whether national political parties should be declared as “public authorities” so that they come under the ambit of RTI Act. The court issued notices to the government, election commission of India (ECI) and the BJP, Congress, BSP, CPI, CPI(M) and NCP, and sought replies within six weeks.The petition was filed by an NGO–Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) and RTI activist Subhash Chandra Agrawal seeking an order to declare all the national political parties as public authorities.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Speaking to ANI, advocate Prashant Bhushan, appearing for the petitioner, said, “Not surprising that the Central government wants to finish RTI act completely.

Bhushan said they would have to deposit 35% of donation received by them had they not been exempted. He said that it shows that they are being funded by the government, making them liable to come under the RTI ActThe petition was filed after their refusal to comply with the Central Information Commission (CIC) order of June 3, 2013, declaring the national political parties to be public authority under Section 2(h) of the Right To Information (RTI) Act.According to the NGO’s plea, political parties receive huge sums of money in form of donations and contributions from corporates, trusts and individuals but do not disclose complete information about the source of such donations and they should mandatorily disclose details of their income as well as expenditure.(With Agency Inputs)

Cant disclose records related to Delhi notification: MHA

RTI Activist Subhash Agrawal had sought from the Home Ministry all the records related to notification issued on May 21 besides rules about officers in Delhi Government for making complaints against Chief Minister, Council of Ministers or any individual minister of Delhi government to Lt Governor of Delhi.

Union Home Ministry has refused to give records related to notification issued by it on the jurisdiction of the Delhi Lieutenant Governor saying the matter is sub-judice.

Justice Katju moves SC to squash Parliament’s resolution against him

New Delhi: Retd Justice Markandey Katju, former apex court judge, on Monday moved the Supreme Court seeking quashing of resolutions passed against him by both Houses of Parliament for calling Mahatama Gandhi and Subhash C Bose as British and Japanese “agents” respectively.

Retd Justice Markandey Katju.Retd Justice Markandey Katju.

Retd Justice Markandey Katju.

The former judge, in his Facebook post, alleged that both Houses of Parliament condemned him for his statements “calling Gandhi a British agent, and Subhas Chandra Bose a Japanese agent” without even giving him a hearing.

A former chairperson of the Press Council of India, Justice Katju, who also annexed the copy of his petition with his facebook post, has sought quashing of resolutions passed against him by Lok Sabha on 12 March and Rajya Sabha on 11 March.

Alternatively, he has sought a direction to Lok Sabha Speaker and Chairman of Upper House that he be heard personally or through his duly designated lawyer(s).

Katju’s post on the social site also said that senior lawyer Gopal Subramaniam would represent him.

“It is a basic principle of natural justice that no one should be condemned unheard. But paying scant regard to this principle, the Hon’ble members of both Houses of the Indian Parliament all flocked together with one voice to condemn me, like the Queen of Hearts in ‘Alice in Wonderland’ who would say ‘Off with his head! ‘ even before she would give a hearing to someone..,” Justice Katju, who has drawn controversy with several of his comments in the past, wrote in his post.

The petition alleged that both Houses of Parliament lacked “competence” to condemn him.

“Because, Parliament (Respondent No.1 and Respondent No.2) lacks the competence and authority to pass the impugned resolutions condemning the act of the petitioner, who is a private person;

“Respondent No.1 and Respondent No.2 are not competent to take cognizance of the expressions of free speech of the private person like the petitioner, as the power under Rule 171 of the Lok Sabha Rules provides that the resolution must relate to act of Government. Thus the Impugned Resolution do not fulfill the jurisdictional requirement, and the necessary jurisdictional facts are lacking,” it said.

The plea also referred to the reasons behind the alleged posts against Gandhi and Bose.

“That, the post in respect of Gandhiji in short made the point that by constantly using religious symbolism in politics for several decades, Gandhiji, in effect furthered the British Policy of Divide and Rule by alienating the Muslim population of the Indian sub-continent away from the national movement. A true typed copy of the post published by the Petitioner on his face book page on 10th March, 2015 in respect of Gandhiji is annexed herewith…

“That, the post in respect of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, in short made the point that through his actions knowingly or unknowingly, he ended up perpetuating Japanese imperial interest in the Indian sub-continent.

Snooping row: Reports of Nehru govt spying on Netaji’s kin are motivated news, says Congress

New Delhi: Congress on Sunday accused the BJP and Narendra Modi government of running a “sinister campaign” against national icons as it dubbed reports of snooping on the family of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose as motivated news plants based on selective leaks.

“News reports suggesting snooping of family of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose are motivated news plants based on selective and mischievous leaks.

“BJP and government are running a sinister campaign of innuendos, insinuations and selective leaks aimed at maligning national icons and our founding fathers including Jawahar Lal Nehru, Vallabbhai Patel, Lal Bahadur Shastri and Govind Ballabh Pant,” Congress leader Anand Sharma said here.

He alleged that motivated “half truths and untruths” are being floated in the media by the Modi government with the sole aim of diverting the attention of people of India from miserable performance, betrayal of mandate and failed promises of the Prime Minister whose government is completing first year in power next month.

He claimed that as “selective leaks” of Bose’s family being snooped upon by Intelligence Bureau between 1948-68 at the behest of Nehru have fallen flat, BJP is planting another “mischievous but contradictory” story about snooping resulting on account of Nehru writing to the then Foreign Secretary inquiring about the visit of Netaji’s nephew Amiya to Tokyo.

“While this news plant on one hand contradicts the earlier media story of IB surveillance, one is forced to wonder as to how and why an inquiry by a Prime Minister – in most transparent manner and vide written note sent through the proper channel of Foreign Secretary and Ambassador – about a close associate of a family can be construed as snooping or espionage,” he wondered in a statement.

Snooping on Netaji’s family: Venkaiah Naidu favours probe

Hyderabad:Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu today sought a thorough probe into the reports of snooping on Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s family while describing the episode as shocking.

“Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose is the beloved son of India. There is news that there was surveillance on his family members, whom they are meeting, where they are going. I feel a thorough inquiry should be conducted and full facts must come to the open,” the parliamentary affairs minister told reporters here.

Naidu said he would like to speak to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh on the issue. “It is a shocking matter. Netaji is a darling of the masses. How far it is true about surveillance… during whose regime it happened. Who is responsible? People need to know the full facts,” he said.

He wondered why Congress leaders are taken by surprise on the matter. “None needs to have objections if the matter is studied further and full details are brought out,” he said.

On the recent incident of some terror suspects being killed in Telangana, Naidu asked why MIM leaders were silent when policemen on duty were killed.

Naidu refused to comment when asked about the killings of wood-cutters in Andhra Pradesh and the suspected terror operatives in Telangana, but asked why some human rights outfits do not allegedly react much when ordinary people die.

“Some people react sharply when an encounter of terrorists or those facing serious charges happen. When ordinary people or the voiceless die, human rights associations don’t react much. The state governments are considering these (issues). As a Union Minister, I don’t wish to comment,” he said.

He, however, said all have the right to seek an inquiry on a matter of importance. On the release of terror mastermind Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, he said Pakistan must walk the talk on controlling terrorism. The Centre has already lodged a protest on the matter.

IB spied on Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s kins for 20 years under Jawaharlal Nehru rule

After the government declassified two files on Netaji Sibhash Chandra Bose, it has been revealed that Netaji relatives were spied upon by the Jawaharlal Nehru for nearly twenty years, says an Indian Today report. The files show that Intelligence Bureau which came directly under Nehru carried the espionage activities between 1948 to 1968. Nehru was the Prime Ministers for 16 of those years.The IB resumed British-style surveillance on his two of his homes at 1 Woodburn Park and 38/2 Elgin Road. Apart from that the IB kept a close eye on Netaji’s relatives’ by tracking their movements and constantly the contents of the letters they wrote and received. The sleuths were particularly interested in the Netaji’s nephews, sons of his brother Sarat Chandra Bose. The nephews were close to Netaji’s during since his years as a Congress activist. they were also in touch Netaji’s wife Emily Schenkl and exchange letters with her.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The IB followed the family on domestic as well as international travellers and their letters were intercepted and copied. The Bureau was keen to know whom the family met and the details of their conversation.Anita Bose-Pfaff, Netaji’s only child and a Germany-based economist has expressed shock as to why her relatives especially her cousins were spied on, the report adds. The report quotes BJP ational spokesperson MJ Akbar speculating that the anxiety about Netaji’s disappearance and the even remote possibility that he might come back must have led to the spying. He believes that the Congress must have felt threatened in the possibility of Netaji’s return.While Anup Dhar, author of ‘India’s Biggest Cover-Up’ has said that these files were accidently unclassified, the issue of declassification of files on Netaji has been a cementitious one since the UPA rule. Taking the line adopted by the previous Congress-led UPA government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Office had refused to disclose records related to Subhash Chandra Bose’s death as it rejected the argument that there was a larger public interest involved in making them public.The Right to Information Act allows for a public authority to disclose records which are otherwise exempt from disclosure if public interest outweighs the harm protected. Activist Subhash Agrawal had sought from the Prime Minister’s Office the records related to the freedom fighter and leader of the Indian National Army to clarify the mystery surrounding his alleged death in a plane crash 70 years back.Agrawal had also asked for information of the steps taken by the top office to make such records public and the action taken on requests seeking such documents. But toeing the line of the UPA government, the PMO had cited an exemption clause in the RTI Act which allows withholding of information that could prejudicially affect relations with a foreign country. The PMO, however, did not even give the names of the countries with which the relations may get affected once the said information is made public.With agency inputs

Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman of Essel Group and ZEE addressed over 400 students of the Amity University Noida on Monday in which the students and teachers were taken on a journey to contemplate about their life and how to make the best out of it in order to be successful. “The idea of this session is to share my experiences and challenges I faced with everyone. It is a way of giving it back to the society and this is one of the reasons this show came into existence” said Dr Chandra. The programme was divided into two sessions. In the first session, students were made to ponder on the topic, would they do if they had 24 hours to live and in the second they were made to discover the purpose in their life. Sharing his experience to the college students, Dr Chandra said, “For me every single day is the last day of my life and that is the secret of my success. If you will ask this question to yourselves each day, then no one can stop you from becoming successful.” Throughout the interactive session, students cleared their doubts and came up with myriad suggestions and questions. The participation was overwhelming as in both the sessions the auditorium had a house full attendance.One of the MBA students, Shabana shared that she will give 100% to everything on her last day to which Dr Subhash Chandra replied, “Why can’t you do that every day. Think every day that today is the last day for the rest of your life and your life would be successful.” Addressing the students he said, “Many think that Honesty cannot lead to success, if you are honest, there won’t be any moment you will feel guilty in your life.”To encourage students he said, “Prepare your bucket list and start working on it without delay. The idea is when you complete whatever you plan the same day, there is no pending tasks, your life get into a schedule and you set on a path to pursue your life. During the session students felt motivated and mustered some courage to share their views. “I have been thinking what I will do in the last 24 hours from past hour. I will take share some time with family and will take one poor person to a restaurant. Also, I have been contemplating whether to share what I feel with everyone present or not, but then I thought what if this is the last day and so stood up and shared, I feel fearless now,” explained Sarvasva.Speaking about the purpose of life he said, “It is very important to find the purpose of life. Until you have defined a purpose in your life you cannot reach heights. Happiness is also a derivative of the purpose. Similarly, adding value to the society is also a purpose.”Dr Subhash Chandra concluded the session by saying that accomplishment of your purpose is very crucial, because at the end of the day if you are not able to achieve what you want, you will never be satisfied. “Your action should be dynamic; there shouldn’t be confusion that which way to go. Strive till your purpose is accomplished. This is the Mantra of Success.”Iamin Spoke with few of the students and their response was overwhelming. “The session has compelled me to think about what is the purpose of my life. There were questions in my mind regarding what I wanted to do in my life and how to approach it. Well, today’s session has given me a new perspective,” said Utkarsh Gupta, student of MBA marketing Shivansh, another MBA student said, “When I came here I was confused about what is my ultimate goal. My grandmother died due to cancer and all this was disturbing me for a while. The session was so interactive and thoughtful that by the end of it, I had a vision about what I want to do now, I will open a cancer hospital to help people who are getting affected from it,” The session was organised as part of the episodes of the Dr. Subhash Chandra Show. The DSC Show has successfully completed 28 episodes so far and has covered eight cities including Mumbai, Kolkata, Jaipur, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad and Pune.
