International Business School of Washington (IBSW)-College De Paris Is Ready To Welcome Students From India

Covid-19 has forced universities across India, and the world indeed, to suspend physical classrooms and shift to online classes. Due to the global lockdown measures implemented and its commitment to delivering value to its students, International Business School of Washington (IBSW) is now offering a hybrid model which offers students the opportunity to continue their education online through its LMS (Learning Management System) and online webinars. As such, this new hybrid model affords students more flexibility by enabling them the options of completing their academic semesters on campus or 100% online. Through this new initiative, IBSW continues sparing no efforts to engage with and facilitate the process of pursuing degrees in the fields of fashion, design, business, technology and hospitality for its current and prospective students.

Furthermore, France has declared on Monday that it was making every effort to address the logistical and planning challenges posed during this pandemic in welcoming Indian students in the next academic year. France has highlighted that this move is motivated by its strong people-to-people ties and strategic partnership between the two countries.

As the COVID-19 pandemic brings about enduring lockdowns and suspended events globally, IBSW-College De Paris continues proposing several innovative ways to foster cooperation and welcome its current and new students across India and the world.

New students will also benefit from IBSW-College de Paris’ commitment to enable the commencement of their academic year without any delays by leveraging their LMS and virtual classrooms wherever necessary.

France has also augmented its proportion of scholarships by 50% – equivalent to 10 crore rupees – for the upcoming academic year. These scholarships will be awarded regardless of whether a student starts the semester in India or France, as Indian students remain keen on gaining international exposure and expertise in France.

Mohammed Naser completed his schooling from Saadiya Senior Secondary school, and he was graduated from PA College, Mangalore, with Bachelor’s in Commerce. He is recently appointed as the Social Media cordinator of the Youth congress, in Bangalore.

Nafih Mohammed believes that, ” Power does not corrupt people, it is corrupted by the people only.” This is one of the many reasons behind him joining the Politics, when the young generation detests the niche. Youngsters hate the corruption surrounding politics, which favours the powerful man but not the poor people of the country, though we are living in democracy.

He is a zestful personality who is attracted by many of his followers due to his active engagement in Public Service, Powerful and impactful positive influence. He wants to follow the duty of social reformer. It is better to be well done, than well said.

His Instagram handle @nafinmn has 110k followers. He is loved for his enthusiasm and realistic approach which can be idealised by the young generation. He trusts the phrase by Dalai Lama, ” If you think you cannot make any change in the world, you should try to sleep with a mosquito.” The motivational quotes from the great people inspired him a lot to transform his mindset.

Nafih Mohamed Naser has been actively involved in efforts to promote, or impede, direct, or intervene in economic, social, political, reform to make desirable changes in society, to make it a good place for the current and coming generation.

He is conscious about the social impact on the youth. Nafih, being a renowned social activist in Bangalore, has participated in many campaigns and rallies related to Anti Drug and other issues to increase awareness among the people about its abuse and harsh effect in society. He wants to eradicate all these anti-social activities by standing out of the crowd. He has learned from the great phrase which states that, “Government is established for the common good which includes the prosperity, safety, happiness, and protection of the people, not the personal profit, honor, or private interest of certain number of people, class, or family.”

Mohammed Naser is actively involved in political campaigns, meetings, propaganda, and rallies of Indian National Congress, and also spreads the news about their contribution to the welfare of the society in his social platforms, and print media.

Nafih Mohammed Naser wants to spread the good will and motives through his work and wisdom.

He is an inspiration to youth due to his optimistic mindset as well as energetic enthusiasm. Young generation should learn from the path of his success which includes prosperity as well as respect. It takes a lot of courage to stand out of the mass and become an iconic figure whom people would follow. Nafih Mohammed has done great job to influence people by his job of social awareness, and urge to change the system.

The burden of working as a great influencer makes a person over conscious about his actions. He needs to talk, think and maintain everything, so that people can follow his actions, and bring the golden days.

He believes that our life will end on the day, when we will choose to remain silent on the topics that matter, and Politicians are the people who seek for opportunity, freedom, and ideas. If they see a ray of light inside a tunnel, they will make a journey to that light to find more tunnels. It is a chain process of the system which we need to maintain for the betterment of society and our life.

A Thought Of Pratush Mishra Need A Promote To New Talent Then Start A New Era In Bollywood After Sushant Untimely Death

From the film diary of Pratush… India has become independent from the British rule but even today our souls are mentally enslaved as the budding talents are getting unnoticed in our country. Today all the resources that take our country to a pinnacle of  advanced level have become reserved after independence. I believe in a country where capable individuals are not given any opportunity or don’t get the desired result according to your calibre means the souls of those talented individuals are also enslaved and by doing so no nation can succeed but will only give rise to a new revolution.     Sushant Singh Rajput, a poster boy, his passing away suggest two things, either become a slave of some self proclaimed gate keeper of the bollywood or be happy with whatever u have achieved.    Though we strongly believe that committing suicide is not the right thing but never the less bollywood companies are running their business in their own way. Whether it is a film or television, they decide on whom they want to make a Star while more often the talented ones get rejected.     But Sushant Singh Rajput”s sacrifice has inspired new comers and producers like us to be more self dependent and vigilant, which probed us to launch our Music company “Soul Node” and OTT platform “YD”.    It will be our endeavour to give opportunity and encouragement to the new talents.

This decision was not made overnight since I have been working and struggling in this film and television freternity for more than a decade now, I have realised that to be successful in this industry, u have to be strong and competent in every manner to prove your mettle.  it has been a great learning experience which led us to form our own production house “PSJ (Pratush, Sumit ,Jai ) Media Vision”.  We began our journey with our first venture, producing a Marathi feature film “Pinga” and successfully completed the first schedule. Second schedule is in the pipeline.

We have kept our spirit high and continued working on Music company and OTT platform. Our sincere promise is to promote new talent and  entertainment in its purest form.

The Efforts Of Actress Kanak Pandey And Saikat Kumar Made The Return Of Purvanchal Residents Possible

एक्ट्रेस कनक पाण्डेय और सैकत कुमार की कोशिशों से पूर्वांचल वासियों की घर वापसी संभव

पूर्वांचल प्रवासी मिलन संस्था ने कराई मजदूरों की सकुशल देशवापसी

स्वदेश वापसी अभियान के तहत सैकड़ों पूर्वांचल के भारतीयों को सयुंक्त अरब अमीरात से वापस भेजा गया

पूरी दुनिया इस समय बहुत कठिन दौर से गुजर रही है, विश्व भर में लोग कोरोना की मार से बेहाल हैं, ऐसे में श्रमिकों का हाल किसी से छुपा नहीं है।  देश और विदेश में फैले पूर्वांचलवासी श्रमिक बहुत परेशान और बेहाल हैं। दुबई में लगभग ५ लाख पूर्वांचली श्रमिक कार्यरत थे, पर कोरोना की मार ने उनकी नौकरियां छीन ली, उसके बाद सभी घर वापसी के लिए परेशान हो गए। परदेस से अपने देश लौटने की बेचैनी बढ़ने लगी, पर कोई फ्लाइट न होने के कारण सभी अपने घर नहीं आ पा रहे थे और दर दर भटक रहे थे। ऐसे में दुबई की संस्था पूर्वांचलियों के दुःख-सुख की साथी “पूर्वांचल प्रवासी मिलन” और भोजपुरी अभिनेत्री कनक पांडेय एक मसीहा बनकर सामने आई। उनसे अपने देशवासियों का दुःख देखा नहीं गया और जुट गई मजबुर हिन्दुस्तानियों की सकुशल घर वापसी के अभियान से।

जबसे लॉक डॉउन शुरू हुआ कनक पांडेय काफी वर्कर्स को रोज़ खाना खिलाती आ रही हैं। वह इस नेक काम मेे अब भी लगी हुई है। जब वह मजदूरों को खाना देने जाती थी, तो उनका दर्द उनसे देखा नहीं जाता था, लोग अपना हाल सुनाते सुनाते रोने लगते थे, फिर कनक पांडेय ने उन्हें उनके घर वापस भेजने का सोच लिया। जब कनक पांडेय ने पूर्वांचल प्रवासी मिलन (पी पी एम) के चेयर मैन सैकत कुमार से मजदूरों का दर्द बयान किया और अपनी सोच को सामने रखा तो उन्होंने कनक का पूरा सहयोग दिया। उनके साथ मिलकर कनक पांडेय ने इस मिशन को कामयाब बनाया और सैकड़ों मजदूरों और उनके हजारों घरवालों की दुआएं पाईं। कनक पांडेय सैकत कुमार की कंपनी की पार्टनर भी हैं और इस नेक पहल को करके उनके दिल को जो सुकून मिला वो अद्वितीय है। कनक पांडेय कहती हैं “सैकत कुमार जी का जितना भी शुक्रिया अदा किया जाए वो कम है।उनके इस योगदान के बिना इतना बड़ा काम संभव नहीं था। सैकत कुमार पूर्वांचल प्रवासी मिलन के चेयरमैन होने के साथ साथ स्काई कैप इन्वेस्टमेंट मैनेजमेंट लिमिटेड दुबई यूएई के सीआईओ और फाउंडर भी हैं।

आपको बता दें कि कनक पांडेय ने सैकत कुमार जी के सहयोग से स्वदेश वापसी अभियान के तहत ३५० पूर्वांचल क्षेत्र के भारतीयों को सयुंक्त अरब अमीरात से वापस लखनऊ और जयपुर १९ तथा २० जून को आईके इंटरनेशनल एयरपोर्ट से स्पाइस जेट की फ्लाइट से भेजा गया। भारत के अन्य शहरो जैसे गया, गुवाहाटी, कोलकाता के लिए भी उडान जल्द ही उड़ान भरेंगी| उनकी वाराणसी की फलाइट 29 June ko उड़ान के लिए तैयार है।

 

ये सब जो पॉसिबल हुआ उसके पीछे कुछ और लोगो की भी बहुत ही महतवपूर्ण भूमिका रही है, जिनमे प्रमुख नाम श्री विपुल जी, भारत के कांसुलेट जेनेरल, श्री अजय सिंह, स्पाइस जेट के चेयरमैन, श्री संजय खन्ना, आईके इंटरनेशनल एअरपोर्ट के सीइओ और श्री अवनीश कुमार अवस्थी उत्तर प्रदेश के चीफ सेक्रेटरी, श्री बाबूलाल मरांडी, नेता विपक्ष, झारखण्ड, श्री सुनील तिवारी, रांची झारखण्ड के विपक्ष के नेता के पोलिटिकल एडवाइजर के नाम उललेखनीय है। साथ ही कुछ और नाम का ज़िक्र भी जरूरी है जैसे, विकास, मनोज सिंह, रवि, मानस, गुरमीत, अशीम भाई, शाहीन भाई और प्रदीप शुक्ल जी।

कनक पांडेय का कहना है कि पूर्वांचल प्रवासी मिलन संस्था ऐसे लोगो की मदद हमेशा ही करती रहेगी तथा कोई भी किसी प्रकार की मदद के लिए हमें संपर्क कर सकता है । पूर्वांचल प्रवासी मिलन की स्थापना का उदेश्य ही बिहार, झारखण्ड तथा उत्तेर प्रदेश के लोगो के बीच एक अच्छे सम्बन्ध को स्थापित करना है , खासकर वो लोग जो इन प्रदेशो से आकर सयुंक्त अरब अमीरात में रह रहे है I

कनक पांडेय के इस जज्बे को सलाम, कि उन्होंने परेशान हाल और मजबुर मजदूरों का दर्द समझा और उन्हें उनके परिवार वालों से मिलवाया।

A 4-Line Poem Retorting Back To Enemy Lovers

The 4-line poem “Enemy Worshippers” opposing the moves to politicize the clash with China at the border is going viral on social media platforms. Hollywood Director and poet Dr. Sohan Roy wrote this poem and shared it on social media.

In the clash that happened in eastern Ladakh’s Galwan where India shares border with China, 20 Indian soldiers had lost their lives for the nation. Even in this situation when each Indian citizen has to stay together to fight against the enemy beyond the border, a tendency to make the issue political, regional and social was evident in the arguments raised by a group of people. This poem got released in the circumstance where various controversial incidents like the odd ways in which many medias pictured the brave demise of the soldiers and the interviews of some political leaders.  Lines in the poem are openly lashes out against the people who degrade the value of brave soldiers who readily lost their lives to uphold the dignity of their motherland.

Into the poem…

Enemy worshippers

For the soldier who sheds his life from chest

To uphold the dignity of motherland

Heinous beings abusing without garlanding them

Should be the ones to be exiled first

The poem was shared on social media with the tagline meaning that the termite inside causes more harm to wood than the woodpecker outside. Doctor of Chennai’s major cricket team also came forward expressing remorse for the controversial comment he made on twitter.

“Enemy Worshippers” has gained much applause from various nooks of the globe. B.R Bijuram, who had also done music direction and background music for different mainstream movies like Black Jew and Aickarakkonathe Bhishaguaranmar, has done the music direction and orchestration of the English and Malayalam versions of this poem. The English version was recited by Bindya Bashi, a tenth-grade student in Rajagiri school in Kochi.

 

A unanimous decision to issue a press release was taken jointly in a virtual zoom meeting held on 22nd June 2020 at 12 noon by Federation of Western India Cine Employees –FWICE & Cine & TV Artistes’ Association -CINTAA

Meeting was attended by:

Shri B N Tiwari President – FWICE

Shri Gangeshwar Srivastav Treasurer – FWICE

Shri Manoj Joshi Sr Vice President – CINTAA

Shri Amit Behl Sr Joint Secretary – CINTAA

Ms Rajeshwari Sachdev Joint Secretary – CINTAA

Shri Rashid Mehta EC Member – CINTAA

Shri Sanjay Bhatia EC Member – CINTAA

Shri Ayub Khan EC Member – CINTAA

The decision to come out with a press release had to be taken as many of the grievances on working conditions/ payment terms/ duty hours which were submitted to the Producers association through series of joint meetings and communications earlier did not result in any positive reverts from them. There is still uncertainty looming large.

Though we have always assured our best support to them they have not taken our concurrence on many issues resulting in lack of clarity and confusions. Many producers are taking unilateral steps of calling our members for shoot, this has only created a feeling of unrest and misguidance amongst the members, even before resumptions of shoot.

FWICE and CINTAA which has scores of members enrolled in the cadres of Actors, Technicians & Workers need immediate changes implemented in the working system/payment terms before any resumption of shoots.

Post COVID-19 the working system would change for all with probable health challenges and drop in immunity levels hence it is all the more important that all our concerns are suitably addressed.

It is highly regretted to note that even after the strict directives issued by the I & B ministry to all the producers to clear the outstanding dues of the actors, workers and technicians pending prior to the announcement of the lockdown by the Government amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Producers have still not cleared the outstanding dues of our members. All the outstanding dues of our members should be cleared prior to the resumption of the shootings.

Shift hours. Strictly to be 8 hours per day.

#Payments to daily paid actors/ technicians/ workers has to be settledv end of the day.

#All contractual employees have to be paid in 30 days.

#Conveyance has to be settled end of the dayv

#Mandatory weekly holiday

#Adherence to stringent health and safety protocols as per directives ofv the Government.

#Insurance: Healthv & Life Insurance with Covid-19 specific coverage. We demand a 50-lac cover for actors / workers /technicians who succumb to death.

#No pay cuts/discounts will be agreed by Actors/ workers /techniciansv post resuming to work.

#No actor/ technicians/ workers would be replaced for refusing givingv discounts on their emoluments.

#Deployment of a well-equipped ambulance along with a Paramedicalv staff (Nurse) and a Doctor at the location

#All the above-mentioned issues have to be resolved first so that there is complete clarity to all, be it actors/ workers or technicians.

 No one can risk the lives of human resources and for us at FWICE AND CINTAA certainly not.

It has been bringing together several award-winning playwrights, directors, actors and technicians and provided students of theatre an opportunity to learn from their seniors through their Facebook Live sessions. Currently, global experts have been added to Coconut Theatre’s repertoire with the coming week seeing Writer-Director David Woods from Australia (22nd June), Actor-Director Glenn Hayden, also from Australia (25th June), Writer-Director Ana Cândida Carneiro from the USA (27th June) and Writer-Director Jeff Baron from the USA (30th June).
“The objective is to provide students of theatre an avenue of learning,” share Rashmin Majithia and and Keyur Sheth of Coconut Theatre.”Of the varied sessions numbering nearly 99, the viewer can choose any.” The 30-minute sessions where the veterans share their craft begin at 6 pm on weekdays and there are two on weekends; 5 pm and 6 pm. Stalwart participants include Makarand Deshpande, Nadira Babbar, Nina Kulkarni, Jayati Bhatia, Himani Shivpuri, Suchitra Pillai, KK Raina and many more.
Ace choreographer Jonathan Hollander from the US, the founder of Battery Dance Company, who has educated students in multiple countries across multiple platforms brought the stage alive on June 18th.
Those who have missed him should not miss David Woods, an acclaimed actor, director and playwright from Australia who is also the co-artistic director of Ridiculusmus, a multi-award-winning theatre company that has been producing seriously funny theatre for over 20 years. He will be the mentor du jour on the 22nd of June.


A similarly seasoned veteran is Glenn Hayden, also from Australia, who is a theatre director and arts facilitator with a 36+ year professional life in the performing arts, who is gracing our screens on June 25th, followed by Ana Cândida Carneiro, an award-winning, published playwright from the USA, on the 27th and Jeff Baron, an American novelist, playwright and screenwriter from the USA on the 30th of June.
“The idea was to revive theatre in our own small way as COVID-19 has brought with it a new normal that is not going away anytime soon,” concludes Keyur Sheth.

For several years now, without fail, Pracheen Kala Kendra has been providing a glorious stage for young artists to blossom and veteran/maestros to bless audiences with their performances, hence aiding the flourishment of the world of Indian Classical Music.

Thus, Pracheen Kala Kendra has started their WEBaithak series (Baithaks on the web) for everyone who wanted to feel the warmth of good music healing their souls and giving hope in these trying times.

After completing two successful editions of the weekly baithak which features every Friday at 8 pm sharp on Pracheen Kala Kendra’s Facebook Page and YouTube Channel, the third edition broadcasted LIVE on Friday, 19th June 2020, 8 pm onwards featured  a solo recital by the extremely talented Tabla exponent Sh Pran Gopal Bandopadhyay.

Bollywood Lost Another Best Actor Sushant Singh Rajput

मुंबई : फ़िल्म अभिनेता सुशांत सिंह राजपूत ने आज अपने घर में फांसी लगाकर आत्महत्या कर ली। उनके घर के नौकर ने यह जानकारी पुलिस को दी। मुम्बई में बांद्रा के अपने फ्लैट में वे फांसी से लटके हुए मिले। परिवारिक मित्रों के अनुसार वे कुछ दिनों से अवसादग्रस्त (डिप्रेशन) थे।

सुशांत का जन्म 21 जनवरी 1986 को पटना बिहार में हुआ था। सर्वप्रथम वे टीवी धारावाहिक ‘किस देश में है मेरा दिल’ से अपने अभिनय करिअर की शुरुआत की थी। लेकिन प्रसिद्धि एकता कपूर के धारावाहिक ‘पवित्र रिश्ता’ से मिली। इसके बाद उन्होंने फ़िल्म ‘काई पो छे’ से रुपहले पर्दे पर कदम रखा। क्रिकेटर महेंद्र सिंह धोनी की बायोपिक ‘एम एस धोनी अनटोल्ड स्टोरी’ की जबरदस्त सफलता के बाद उनका फिल्मी ग्राफ बढ़ गया। केदारनाथ, राब्ता, शुद्ध देसी रोमांस, छिछोरे, सोन चिरैया, ब्योमकेश बक्शी और पीके जैसी फिल्मों से अपने अभिनय का लोहा मनवाया।

मरने से पहले उन्होंने इंस्टाग्राम पर अंतिम और भावुक पोस्ट अपनी मम्मी को लिखा था। बॉलीवुड के लिए यह एक बड़ा झटका है।

कुछ समय पहले सुशांत की मैनेजर दिशा ने भी आत्महत्या कर ली थी जो अचरज भरा था। अब सुशांत की आत्महत्या की खबर संदेह का माहौल पैदा कर रही है। क्या अज्ञात कारण है कि सुशांत ने यह कदम उठाया। फिलहाल पुलिस इसकी छानबीन में लग गई है।

सुशांत का फिल्मी करियर अपनी उछाल पर था। आर्थिक रूप से भी वे सम्पन्न थे। हाँ वर्तमान समय में कारोना के कारण सभी की जिंदगी रुक गयी है, परंतु यह अंत तो नहीं। कारोना काल हटते ही जिंदगी की दौड़ प्रारंभ हो जाएगी।

सुशांत के मौत की खबर सुनते ही सुपरस्टार अक्षय कुमार ने ट्वीटर अकॉउंट पर लिखा है कि उनके मृत्यु से निशब्द हूँ। उनकी हालिया हिट फिल्म ‘छिछोरे’ देखकर मैंने इस फ़िल्म के निर्माता मित्र साजिद नाडियाडवाला को फोन कर फ़िल्म का हिस्सा बनने की बात कही थी। वह प्रतिभावान अभिनेता थे। ईश्वर उनके परिवार को दुख सहने की शक्ति प्रदान करे।

इसके बाद “यशपाल शर्मा” ने अपने पोस्टर में कहा
“तुम पाकिस्तान तो चले गए ! मगर पाकिस्तानी आज तक नहीं कहलाये मुहाजिर कहलाते हो मुहाजिर” 

तीसरे पोस्टर में “विष्णु शर्मा” ने कहा
“इससे पहले की टेरेरिस्ट अपना ट्रेनिंग कैंप छोड़ कर जाये हम अपने मिसाइल उनपर छोड़ देंगे”

जहर उगलते चौथे पोस्टर में शक्कू राणा ये कहते हुए नज़र आये
“इस आग से पाकिस्तान को जलाओगे क्या ?, बचाके रखो इसे इंडिया को जलाने के लिए”

अनलॉक के बाद अब पांचवा पोस्टर आ गया है और पांचवे पोस्टर से निकले हैं “राणा जंग बहादुर” जिनके मुंह से निकला ये डायलॉग वतनपरस्ती पर खड़े करता है कई सवाल ! राणा के मुँह से निकला ये विवादित सवाल
“ओये कबूतरा !! ईद के दिन गले मिलने से घबरा रहा है कहीं तूने कमर पे बम तो नहीं बांध रखा है ? “

श्रोतागण हम तो सचमुच कन्फुज हो गए है इस घडी,
देखते है मुस्ताक पाशा कहाँ से कहाँ जोड़ते हैं वतनपरस्ती की कड़ी।

Masala King Dhananjay Datar Of Dubai Sends Indians Home A La Sonu Sood !

With the UAE being hit by the massive COVID-19 pandemic, Indian migrants in the UAE are queuing up outside the Indian consulate to try and get back to their motherland – India. Thousands of blue- and white-collar workers are unable to deal with the financial crisis and medical emergencies arising due to COVID-19. “I haven’t been paid for the last two months,” says one worker. “I need money to buy a ticket to get back home,” says another. “My wife is thirty-two weeks pregnant and we cannot afford to get the child delivered in the UAE. I have no job and no money. It’s a very difficult situation for me.”
These Indian expatriates have found a helping hand in entrepreneur Dr. Dhananjay Datar from Maharashtra, India. The man behind the Al-Adil group of companies in the UAE has sponsored the travel of more than 3000 Indians to India thus far besides their COVID-19 tests, medical emergencies and food needs wherever necessary.  And as we speak, is working on sending the  next set of Indians home.
An award-winning entrepreneur, Datar is known for his brand association with actors like Vidya Balan, Karishma Kapoor, Sunny Leone, Juhi Chawla, Shilpa Shetty and Madhuri Dixit among many others. In fact, his autobiography was launched two years ago by Madhuri. This time around, Datar is being touted as his actions make him no less than a star himself. But the earthy entrepreneur dismisses the accolades with his statement. “It is one of the largest emergency evacuations and all hands need to be on deck. As a fellow Indian, I am simply doing what I can.”
“This effort of Datar comes as a breath of fresh air in these times of masked existence,” avers H.E. Vipul, Consulate General of India in Dubai, U.A.E. “We have already sent eleven flights to India. Five of them have repatriated over 3000 Indians. I am glad that Dhananjay Datar of Al-Adil group came forward to sponsor the air tickets and COVID-19 tests. Such support is always welcome.”
Adds Datar, “I understand that many individuals who have lost their jobs are unable to make use of this initiative to go to their hometown since they do not have the money required. I will be coordinating with the approved bodies to extend a helping hand to those in need. All necessary guidelines in connection with this will be strictly followed. I am thankful to those who are involved in the repatriation process.”
Next on the cards are 13-14 flights that would bring more expats back home. While on Indian grounds, an actor like Sonu Sood has made migrants feel safe and respected, Datar seems to  be performing a similar laudable effort. He has not just helped medical and travel for the next 50 poor workers from Telangana, but got them.monthly ration down to the last bit of cooking oil. “They are our fellow Indians in a foreign country. They need our support,” he says simply. “As flights will start to Goa, Lucknow, Jaipur and Chandigarh, we will send people home.


Maharashtra will take some time but before anyone leaves this soil, we ensure their COVID19 test is done so that the government has least stress back home abd they can be on home quarantine,” he adds.
Incidentally, Al-Adil Trading LLC is one of the leading manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers of premium Indian pulses, spices, foodstuffs, groceries, branded items and assorted non-food items, has 34 outlets in the GCC and India. His group employs 500 employees directly and 370 in the UAE and India, essentially gives job opportunities to Indians, aids farmers by eliminating the process of middlemen in terms of procurement.

इम्तियाज अली से प्रभावित हैं युवा निर्देशक शिवम खुराना

बॉलीवुड के सबसे कम उम्र के निर्देशक शिवम खुराना ने अब तक तीन शॉर्ट फिल्म, कुछ एड फिल्में और एक सिंगल वीडियो ‘मैनूं छड के’ का निर्देशन किया है। इस गीत को अदनान अहमद ने गाया है और वीडियो में अदनान के साथ उन्नति पांडेय की जोड़ी नज़र आएगी। शिवम निर्देशन के अलावा स्क्रिप्ट राइटर व एडिटर भी हैं।

उनका मानना है कि जब एक स्टार किसी निर्देशक के साथ काम करता है तो उस प्रोजेक्ट में उसकी बहुत दखलअंदाजी रहती है, भले ही वह सुलझा हुआ काबिल निर्देशक ही क्यों न हो। इसके कई उदाहरण हैं जिसके कारण एक अच्छा खासा प्रोजेक्ट बंद पड़ जाता है। मैं जब कभी फ़िल्म बनाऊंगा तब किसी ऐसे हस्तक्षेप करने वाले स्टार के बजाय एक प्रतिभाशाली कलाकार के साथ काम करना करना पसंद करूंगा।

फिलहाल दिल्ली के नौजवान डायरेक्टर शिवम खुराना महज बाइस वर्ष के हैं और दो बरस से मुम्बई में रह रहे हैं। वह दिल्ली के प्रिंस पब्लिक स्कूल से प्रारंभिक शिक्षा ग्रहण करने के बाद कस्तूरी राम कॉलेज ऑफ हायर एजुकेशन से बी जे (एम सी) बैच में ग्रेजुएट हैं। निर्देशन को अपना कैरियर चुनने के बाद इन्होंने आइस बालाजी टेलीफिल्म के अंतर्गत डायरेक्शन का कोर्स करते हुए फ़िल्म मेकिंग में डिप्लोमा हासिल किया है।

शिवम ने बड़े बैनर के कुछ प्रोजेक्ट में अनुभवी निर्देशकों के साथ सहायक के रूप में कार्य करते हुए निर्देशन के गुर सीखे हैं। बालाजी टेलीफिल्म की हिट शो ‘कुमकुम भाग्य’ और ओटीटी प्लेटफार्म पर रिलीज हुई ‘कबूतरी’ में वह चीफ असिस्टेंट रह चुके हैं।

शिवम कहते हैं कि बॉलीवुड के दिग्गज डायरेक्टर इम्तियाज अली सर मुझे बेहद प्रभावित करते हैं, उनकी फिल्मों में दर्शाए गए इमोशनल लव जर्नी से आजकल के युवा आसानी से जुड़ जाते हैं। आगे मैं भी इनके नक्शेकदम पर चलते हुए लव और इमोशन को नया आयाम देने की कोशिश करूंगा।

Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) Mega Unity Webinar Highlights Pain Points Of Real Estate – Underlines the need for all stakeholders to come together on a common platform and convey critical changes that the authorities need to urgently implement

June 8, 2020

In the face of adversity comes opportunity. The COVID-19 crisis offers the real estate industry a ‘never before’ opportunity to reset and redo to reinvigorate cities like Mumbai. However, this can only happen if specific policy changes are announced by the authorities. These were the key takeaways from the Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) ‘Mega Unity Webinar,’ held on 8th June 2020 at 05.00 pm, which highlighted the pain points of real estate and endeavoured to come up with practical solutions and suggestions. The biggest webinar brought various developers associations, channel partners associations, architects engineers associations and allied associations together on a common platform for the first time ever.

Harrish Jain, Vice President, Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA), explained, “This pain has brought us all together, it may unite us together also. Real estate has been facing multiple problems and now the current crisis of COVID-19 has added to them. Earlier we were communicating differently with the government and that was not the right way. Uniting the associations will give us a voice which is stronger and will help us to communicate with the government in the right way. We have to be united together to achieve progress. We have been discussing problems all through the lockdown period during the BDA webinar series, now let’s concentrate on how to resolve them. Let us brainstorm and see how to get solutions out of this. Since there are so many associations participating today, we have to be united to resolve issues. Alone we are a drop, together we can be an ocean. There is strength in numbers, let’s unite together.”

Nayan Shah, President, CREDAI MCHI, made a comparison between real estate as a percentage of India’s economy vis-à-vis that in the USA, UK and China. “About 6% of India’s economy is real estate. India’s real estate value is $1.20-1.40 billion, our share will go up to $500-600 bn in the next 5-6 years. The government of India is spending more than Rs 7 lakh crores in agriculture, while the real estate sector is only asking for Rs 30,000-40,000 crore to grow from $140 bn to $500-600 bn. We are going to try to get relief from central government and Reserve Bank of India and the finance ministry, not as a matter of sympathy but because we have strength and we can make a big difference in the economic status of the country. Apart from the pains that we are passing through, it is important to give this economic data to the Government. Real estate has a price multiplier effect. This is the extent to which real estate can make a difference.”

Ajay Ashar, Spokesperson of the CREDAI MCHI MMR Action Committee, praised BDA for having accumulated so many players on one platform. “This is the right approach. When the Rs 20 lakh crore package was announced we had great expectations from the government as we are the second-largest employment generating sector. However, we were disappointed. Restructuring of loans is very important. Home loan rates to be reduced. So many things we are facing. I requested everybody, let us understand how much is the pain, how we can be united. We have to do something, get on one platform and focus. This is how the CREDAI MCHI MMR Action Committee was born. In no time we had 13 organizations ready to speak in one voice. In a democracy, everything comes down to numbers. We have so many different associations but all our causes are the same. If we unite and speak in one voice, nothing can stop us. If our combined voice reaches, it will resonate. Let’s have one voice, one agenda and one platform. We should stand and support each other. If our voice is unanimous and having common goals we can achieve anything. The economy will be revived only if our industry is rolling.”

CA Ramesh Prabhu, Chairman, Maharashtra Societies Welfare Association (MSWA), affirmed that “We are facing a huge crisis. Redevelopment is the need of the hour for Mumbai; every society is looking for developers to perform but we also understand the challenges faced by them. Applying GST on the rehab portion is a harsh step, the government needs to come up with some package for real estate and redevelopment.”

The webinar was also accessed live on BDA’s YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/bdamumbai. The unique webinar hosted by BDA had representations from the CREDAI-MCHI MMR Action Committee; Developer Associations such as CREDAI MCHI –Mumbai, MCHI –Thane, MCHI –MVC, MCHI – Vasai, Virar, MCHI –Raigad, MCHI – Navi Mumbai, CMDWA, MSDA, NMBDA, MCHI Kalyan Dombivli,  YOUTH Association, Progressive Neral Karjat, MBD, MHBA, Khopoli Builders Association; Channel Partner Associations like NAR- India, AREA group, MEAA, GREA, GREAAT, KKEAA, TEAA, CREAA, REAAK, GEAWA, FMBPDA, Property PPL, SMART, MERA, NEPRA, KDRA, KEASWA, AWEAA, GEAWA, SPREA, SCEAWA, MBA; Architects & Engineers Associations like Architects & Engineers, Indian Society Of Structural Engineers (ISSE); The Maharashtra Societies Welfare Association (MSWA), Registration Fee & Stamp Duty Payers Association (REGD), Cooperative Societies Residents Users & Welfare Association and the Federation of Accommodation Industry of India.

BDA Profile

The Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) is created out of a Movement. It is more of a movement than an association. In a matter of 12 months, more than 500 developers mainly into redevelopment have joined the movement. Borivali Developers Association was born out of exactly such a need in the year 2019. A small group of five developers primarily involved in redevelopment projects in Borivali, initiated the idea of such an organisation. However, in a very short span of time, the idea caught the imagination of developers across the city involved in redevelopment and therefore the organization was renamed and registered as Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) so as to represent all its members who joined the movement from across the city of Mumbai.

At BDA we realize that when we do quality redevelopment projects, we not only contribute to the economy of the nation but also bring about a huge change in the lifestyles and aspirations of the existing slum dwellers, tenants or society members whose buildings we redevelop. It is therefore about time that our social and economic contribution is recognized by the authorities and due support is provided to ease out the difficulties faced by the industry.

IBSW-College De Paris Is Ready To Welcome Students From India

Covid-19 has forced universities across India, and the world indeed, to suspend physical classrooms and shift to online classes. Due to the global lockdown measures implemented and its commitment to delivering value to its students, International Business School of Washington (IBSW) is now offering a hybrid model which offers students the opportunity to continue their education online through its LMS (Learning Management System) and online webinars. As such, this new hybrid model affords students more flexibility by enabling them the options of completing their academic semesters on campus or 100% online. Through this new initiative, IBSW continues sparing no efforts to engage with and facilitate the process of pursuing degrees in the fields of fashion, design, business, technology and hospitality for its current and prospective students.

Furthermore, France has declared on Monday that it was making every effort to address the logistical and planning challenges posed during this pandemic in welcoming Indian students in the next academic year. France has highlighted that this move is motivated by its strong people-to-people ties and strategic partnership between the two countries.

As the COVID-19 pandemic brings about enduring lockdowns and suspended events globally, IBSW-College De Paris continues proposing several innovative ways to foster cooperation and welcome its current and new students across India and the world.

New students will also benefit from IBSW-College de Paris’ commitment to enable the commencement of their academic year without any delays by leveraging their LMS and virtual classrooms wherever necessary.

France has also augmented its proportion of scholarships by 50% – equivalent to 10 crore rupees – for the upcoming academic year. These scholarships will be awarded regardless of whether a student starts the semester in India or France, as Indian students remain keen on gaining international exposure and expertise in France.

COVID 19 Economic Impact Study By Levers For Change A Report From Ground Zero Understand The Impact Of Corona Virus On Indian States Industries And Stakeholders

COVID-19 has changed the way the ‘normal’ world functions. It has rattled the fundamentals and we are all trying to cope with the ‘new normal’ – a term that is amongst the most trending today!

Industries, across sectors and states in India and globally, have been greatly affected. Some bearing the brunt directly, while others facing the challenges indirectly, thanks to supply chain disruptions. While some businesses are sailing the tailwinds, most are grappling with the effects of this global pandemic. Consumer and business dynamics have literally changed overnight. This has forced us, as people and as organisations, to re-evaluate our preparedness to fight the disease and secure the future, for ourselves and our stakeholders.

As an industry or organisation or business, navigating this COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath is a huge challenge, no doubt. It needs a methodology – a clear approach – to see through all the chaos, bring in a method to the madness, so to speak. It is crucial to clearly understand the economic landscape at a macro level, before and during this pandemic, to help extrapolate what could perhaps be the ‘after’ state of affairs at a micro-level.

It is with this thought process that Levers For Change (LFC), a decade-old Business Transformation Consultancy based in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, embarked on a detailed study, in an earnest attempt to understand, and thereon share insights on, this truly unprecedented pandemic and its impact on the Indian economy.

The team led by Mr.Ankur Kumar (Operating Partner), reached out to all the stakeholders they had ever come in contact with over their decade-long journey. They connected with hundreds of stakeholders: CEO’s, small business owners, farmers, large distributors, retailers, truck owners and salaried employees across states. They were able to cut across all strata leveraging their network, that covers almost 65% of India’s tehsils. All this, with the keen intent to provide constructive insights, to help businesses and stakeholders form a clear view of the economic situation.

Why did LFC feel a need to do this? What was the purpose of this study?

“COVID-19 has presented an unprecedented level of uncertainty in the business environment, and as consultants, the one question that our clients frequently ask – ‘when will the situation become normal?’ To answer this question, we looked at several data models that predict the opening of lockdown and recovery of the economy; however all these models varied significantly.”, explains Mr.Omprakash.

“Moreover, given the diversity of India, there are so many layers of complexity, for instance, certain states host high economic activities while there are others that are rather low on this scale; while, some states are connected to the international markets, some are fairly insulated from the global dynamics. This apart we have the quintessential urban-rural divide. None of the existing data models, in a nutshell, comprehensively addressed these complexities & dynamics that are peculiar to our country,  in many ways.”

“Given this diversity, exposure or lack of it and the divide across the states, it is difficult to make predictions that will hold ground country-wide or sector-wide. For example, Coimbatore, Tirupur, Karur in Tamilnadu and Surat, Vadodara in Gujarat,  are two prominent textile belts, but the severity of infection is different in each of these states. The value chain and recovery of the Textile sector are thus difficult to predict accurately.”

Businesses need to understand the country-wide recovery by actually looking at the markets and geographies at the ground level – local level.  We need to understand that even within a state, there are different economic centres, and each of it is exposed to varying degrees of impact.

“It thus becomes very important for leaders to have a holistic understanding. It is for this reason, to fill this gap, that we decided to undertake such an extensive study, at the local level – at ground zero.”, says Mr.Ankur Kumar

“This report intends to help understand which sectors/ areas, over a period of time, are likely to open up faster, and which may take longer. This will enable leaders to plan their business activities accordingly. A fine example of this – a client of ours, who wished to do a sales transformation project in a particular part of the country, is now looking at repositioning the market to address.”

Over the past decade, LFC has planned and implemented several sales transformation programs, spanning various sectors – Agriculture input, Construction, FMCG and several other industries. This helped build strategic touch-points across districts.

Mr.Ankur Kumar explains, “For the study, we identified the top 10 states in India that contribute to 75% of the GDP. In these states, we further identified districts that contribute to 80% of the state GDP. We tracked and reached out to our deep network in all these districts. We took their feedback – their view on the COVID-19 impact on Agricultural, Construction, Trade, Local Manufacturing, Local Transportation and other business activities – at their ground zero.”

“We combined their feedback with the metric of Healthcare System Readiness, which we understood from the Govt. websites – number of tests per million and medical infrastructure available to deal with the pandemic. We also read through the various reports published on COVID-19 and took wisdom from them. In this way, we created this report bottoms-up, from ground zero. It strives to help business leaders to find the right direction, to help pivot as needed.”

The report deep-dives and presents the ‘before-state’, ‘current-state’ and the actions taken by the Govt. that will impact the ‘future-state’. It explores the situation state-wise and sector-wise for insights.

A glimpse into the report

The largest, and most impacted state of Maharashtra from the economy point of view:

Maharashtra is the largest state of India, contributing to almost 14% of national GDP. It also accounts for 36% COVID-19 cases in India.

The top 3 districts have come to a total halt. COVID impact on the districts of Pune and Thane has hampered the manufacturing of the estate; Trade and Services based economy of Mumbai is also disrupted due to social distancing; Agriculture as a whole has taken a beating with farmers struggling with inefficient logistics, harvest being sold way below MSP and coping with a labour shortage.

Services contribute to 54% of GSDP, manufacturing is the second major contributor accounting for 27% of GSDP and agriculture contributing to 18% of GSDP. None of these sectors, except Agriculture, has seen any significant intervention from the Government to expedite the recovery process.

The number of cases in Maharashtra is expected to peak in the month of July and from there it should take further 2 months to emerge completely out of lockdown. However, the demand recovery and recovery of the economy as such should be expected only in the second quarter of FY22.

The report details the top 10 states in this manner. As such, with this study, LFC summarises that Indian towns will be fully back to normal by the end of Q3-FY21 and the Indian economy will revive by Q2-FY22.

Mr.Sunil Chordia – CMD, Rajratan Global Wire (Asia’s second-largest bead wire manufacturing company, with factories in India and Thailand), also a Member of CII, Western Region, too concurs with the findings and shared his views on the topic.

“The war against Corona is proving to be very costly. In spite of which part of the globe you live in or whatever type of interventions the government makes – the economic cost seems to be very high. In India particularly the economic cost of lockdown surely seems to be underestimated. While we might seem to be doing better in terms of infections, there is no real clarity on how the resumption of supply chains back to normal levels – will happen.”

“With already a highly broken & fragmented supply chain – opening up of lockdown being handled by different state governments differently, any model that predicts economic recovery shall be only partly true. In that sense, I find this study of LFC, reasonably fair – given their model looks at local economic centres and their recovery patterns. I tend to agree with their findings of the economy coming back to pre-COVID levels, surely not before Q2 of FY22”

Corona Ends In September So Now This Big Crisis May Come In Front Of Country Says Astrologer Ritu Singh

सितम्बर में  कोरोना का अंत, तो अब ये बड़ा संकट आ सकता है देश के सामने, कहती हैं एस्ट्रोलॉजर डॉ रितु  सिंह
कोरोना वायरस नामक इस वैश्विक आपदा ने समस्त मानवजाति को आज संकट में डाल दिया है। जहाँ एक ओर यह बीमारी खत्म होने का नाम तक नहीं ले रही, वहीं दूसरी ओर पूरे विश्व में इसके खत्म होने का इंतज़ार कर रहे है, जिनमें हमारे भारत देश के लोग भी शामिल हैं। कुछ लोग बीमारी को लेकर अपने अपने अनुमान लगा रहे हैं तो कुछ लोग ज्योतिषियों का सहारा ले रहे हैं। बीमारी को लेकर कई ज्योतिषी अपने अनुसार लोगों को इस बीमारी।   जिनमे से एक हैं, Astrologer Ritu Singh ।
Astrologer Ritu Singh देश की एक जानी मानी सेलिब्रिटी एस्ट्रोलॉजर हैं। अन्य लोगों की तरह Dr Ritu Singh ने भी खुद को सेल्फ़ क्वारंटाइन किया हुआ है। एस्ट्रोलॉजर ने भविष्यवाणी करते हुए बताया है कि आने वाले सितंबर माह के बाद कोरोना वायरस के कारण किसी भी व्यक्ति की मृत्यु नही होगी। इस प्रकार कहा जा सकता है कि Dr Ritu Singh के अनुसार सितंबर माह के बाद कोरोना का प्रकोप खत्म हो जाएगा।
Ritu Singh का कहना है  26 दिसंबर 2019 में हुए सूर्य ग्रहण की स्थिति धनु राशि में 6 षडाष्टक योग बना रहे थे। जोकि शुभ योग नहीं था।

आगे रितु सिंह कहती हैं कि 24 जनवरी को शनि गुरु केतु से अलग होकर धनु को छोड़कर मकर राशि में प्रवेश किया और गुरु और केतु की युति हमेशा विध्वंस कारी माने जाते हैं। बृहस्पति किसी भी चीज को विस्तृत रूप देने की क्षमता रखता है, इसी कारण कोरोना बीमारी ने विकट रूप रख लिया।

सितंबर माह में कोरोना वायरस खत्म होने की सकारात्मक भविष्यवाणी के साथ ही Dr Ritu Singh ने एक नकारात्मक बात भी कही है। उनका कहना है कि  कि  21 जून को दोबारा सूर्य ग्रहण पड़ेगा जो कि मिथुन राशि में है जिसके कारण भारत को नए संकटों से जूझना पड़ सकता है, जिनमे से दो देशों के मध्य युद्ध, सुनामी या अन्य किसी प्राकृतिक आपदा का सामना हो सकता है। एस्ट्रोलॉजर का कहना है कि ये सब के साथ मनुष्य को कोरोना की वैक्सीन ना आने तक खुद ही अपनी सुरक्षा करनी होगी।

 
एस्ट्रोलॉजर Ritu Singh ने खुद बताया कि इससे पहले वह प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र, मेगास्टार अमिताभ बच्चन व अरविंद केजरीवाल को लेकर भी भविष्यवाणी कर चुकी हैं, जो कि शत प्रतिशत सत्य साबित हुई है।

राईटर डायरेक्टर कुमार नीरज…. एक ऐसा नाम जो अपने कठिन परिश्रम ओर अपने जुनून की बदौलत आज किसी परिचय के मोहताज नहीं हैंl

राईटर डायरेक्टर कुमार नीरज…. एक ऐसा नाम जो अपने कठिन परिश्रम ओर अपने जुनून की बदौलत आज किसी परिचय के मोहताज नहीं हैं… बिहार के वैशाली जिले में जन्मे कुमार नीरज पर भगवान की कृपा कुछ ऐसी रही कि इन्होंने बचपन से ही अपने मंजिल की ओर बढ़ना शुरू कर दिया था…या फिर यूं कह सकते हैं कि बचपन से ही कुमार नीरज को स्ट्रगल करना पड़ा था…

महज 2 साल की उम्र में कुमार नीरज ने अपने पिता को खो दिया था… छोटे से उम्र में ही अपने पिता का साया सर से खोने वाले  कुमार नीरज और उनकी फैमली ग़रीबी को दूर करने के लिए अपना जिला छोड़ परिवार के साथ गाजियाबाद के साहिबाबाद में आ गयी… कुमार नीरज की पढ़ाई लिखाई सब गाजियाबाद से हुई,बचपन से क्रिकेट में तेज़ बोलिंग करने के कारण बॉलिंग के लिए अंडर सिक्सटीन में गाजियाबाद से up के लिए सलेक्शन भी हुआ पर यहां भी गरीबी ने साथ नहीं छोड़ा और ₹65000 कमेटी को ना देने की वजह से उनको क्रिकेट से बाहर होना पड़ा,

अपने दोस्त जो शादियों में कैमरा से शूटिंग करता था,उसके साथ शादियों में कैमरे कंधे पर लेकर सदियों की वीडियों रिकॉर्डिंग करने लगे,ओर कुमार नीरज को येही से कैमरा ओर फ़िल्म के तरफ झुकाव बढ़ता गया, कहानी वो पहले से लिखते थे,उस टाइम माया पूरी फिल्म मैगजीन में सब डायरेक्टर का ऑफिस का अड्रेस हुआ करता था, कुमार नीरज अपनी कहानी महेश भट्ट को लिख के भेजा करते थे,अब वो बम्बई जाना चाहते थे जो अब मुम्बई हो गई है,पर घरवाले साथ देने को रेडी नहीं थे, ऊपर से गरीबी मुंबई जाने का सपना पूरा होता दिख नही रहा था उसी टाइम एक क्रिकेट मैच में कुछ पैसे जीतने वाले कुमार नीरज बिना कुछ किसी को बोले दिल्ली से1999 में मुंबई का ट्रेन पकड़ लिए और अपना सपना पूरा करने मुंबई आ गए पर अभी तो खेल शुरू हुआ था कुमार नीरज का मुंबई में ना कोई रहने का ठिकाना  था ना कोई खाना खिलाने वाला कुछ दिन पार्क में सोने के बाद जुहू के हरे कृष्णा मंदिर में जाकर खाना खाते समय एक पंडित की नजर उन पर पड़ी पंडित को समझते देर नहीं लगा लड़का भागा हुआ है….

पंडित ने कुमार नीरज  को साइड में लाकर सख्ती से पुछा तो 1 दिन से भुखे कुमार नीरज  ने रोते हुए अपनी सारी कहानी पंडित को बता दिया,पंडित ने  घर बापस लौटने को पैसे दिए कुमार नीरज को पर कुमार नीरज को फ़िल्म लाइन में ही काम करना था,ये उनका जुनून था ओर गाजियाबाद लौटना नामंजूर था… कुमार नीरज ने हाथ पैर पकड़ के पंडित से बोला… आप सिर्फ मुझे रहने के लिए जगह दे दो और मुझे शूटिंग में काम दिलवा दो.. हरे कृष्णा मंदिर के सामने  बहुत सारे घरों में शूटिंग होती थी,पंडित को कुमार नीरज के जिद के आगे झुकना पड़ा और वो उनके घर पे रहने लगे,कुछ दिन बाद पंडित ने उनको एक फ़िल्म में रखवा दिया और यही से शुरू हुआ कुमार नीरज का असली सफर….इसके बाद कुमार नीरज ने फिर पीछे मुड़ के नही देखा,और अपनी पहचान बनाकर u tv जॉइन कर ली… कुछ साल बाद उनका एक्सीडेंट हो गया और उन्होंने zee नेक्स्ट chanel join कर लिया, जो जल्दी बंद हो गया,फिर कुछ साल बाद वो बोहरा ब्रोस प्रोडक्सन जॉइन किया और वही से अपना खुद का प्रोडक्शन हाउस शुरु करने की सोची,कुछ दिन बाद उनको पता चला के उनके भाई को केंसर हो गया है ओर उनके फैमली पे दुखो का पहाड़ टूट पड़ा,भाई को मुम्बई में इलाज कराकर उनको बिहार छोड़ने गए,कुछ फैमली प्रॉब्लम से वो कुछ साल वही रुक गए,ओर उनकी सादी खुश्बू सिंह से हो गयी,,

फिर कुछ महीना गुजर ही था के उनके बड़े भाई को अचानक ब्रेनहेमरेज होगया,कुमार इससे ऊपर ही पाते तभी उनका केंसर वाले भाई भी चल बसे, उनके जाने के कुछ महीने बाद उनकी माँ भी गुजर गई 2 साल में 3 लाश घर मे देख चुके कुमार नीरज को अंदर से तोड़ दिया,पर कुमार नीरज ने खुद को संभाला और धीरे धीरे सब ठीक करते हुए मुम्बई जाने की तैयारी करने लगे तभी एक प्रोड्यूसर जो एक भोजपुरी फ़िल्म बनाने चाहता था कुमार नीरज के साथ मिलकर फ़िल्म शुरू कर दिया सारी यूनिट मुम्बई से आगई ओर प्रोड्यूसर गायब हो गया क्योंकि उसको खुद  हीरो बनना था और उसके भतीजे को विलेन जो कुमार नीरज को मंजूर नही था…

उसके अचानक भाग जाने से कुमार नीरज को दिमाग ही हिल चुका था वो भगवान पे अपना गुस्सा निकल रहे थे कि तभी भगवान ने उनकी सुन ली और उनके ससुर राजकिशोर सिंह का कॉल आ गया जो उस टाइम अपनी मंझली बेटी का कही रिश्ता देख के आये थे उन्होंने ये खबर देने के लिए नीरज को फोन किया था… कुमार नीरज की उदासी बाली आवाज सुन राजकिशोर सिंह को समझते देर नही लगी,कुमार नीरज ने प्रोड्यूसर भागजाने की बात राजकिशोर सिंह को बताई,

कुछ देर बाद राजकिशोर सिंह सीधे अपने बैंक जाके 5 लाख कैश निकल कर शूट पर पहुंच गए और बोले शूट मत रोको ,उसी टाइम शूटिंग देखने कुमार नीरज की बड़ी बहन मुन्नी सिंह भी आई हुई थी,फिर राजकिशोर सिंह से सारी बात सुनने के बाद वो अपने छोटे भाई को मदद करने को मन बना लिया ओर उस फिल्म की प्रोड्यूसर बन गईं,6 लाख रुपये वो उसी टाइम कुमार नीरज के ac में ट्रांसफर करा दिया ओर इस तरह राजकिशोर सिंह और मुन्नी सिंह के सहयोग से परेशानी को दूर कर  कुमार नीरज की पहली भोजपुरी फ़िल्म बनी,,

Soni Jha Got Recognition From Unique Poetry Writing

अनोखे काव्य लेखन से मिली पहचान – सोनी झा

प्रेरणा और अलग नजरिया जिसमें होता है। वह अपने कविता के जरिए लोगों में एक बेहतर अनुभूति कराता है। अपने काव्य से लोगों में एक उमंग जगाता है। शब्दों की सजावट और शब्दों के साथ उसका सही वर्णन जो कोई करता है उसे ही एक काव्य कलाकार कहते हैं। यह कलाकार हमें निसर्ग एवं समाज से जोड़ें रखते हैं।

ऐसी ही एक कलाकार के बारे में हम आपको बताने जा रहे हैं जो अपने काव्य से लोगों का मन लुभा रही है। सोनी झा, जो कि झारखंड के जमशेदपुर शहर से हैं उनके पिता पुलिस में देश की सेवा कर रहे हैं और माताजी ग्रहणी है, सोनी झा अपने बाल रूप से ही लोगों और लोगों के मन के साथ जोड़ी है। शायद यही कारण है कि वह इतनी बेहतरीन कविताएं लिखती है, जो लोगों के मन को लुभा जाती है और लोगों को सोचने पर विवश कर देती है।

वह एक तरह से शब्दों को पीरों कर और शब्दों की नक्काशी कर उसे एक काव्य रूप देती है जिसे लोग पढ़े बिना रह नहीं पाते और उसमें ही लीन रह जाते हैं। उनका कहना है कि कविताएं लिखने से पहले कल्पना और अद्भुत विचारों का मिश्रण होना बहुत ही जरूरी है जिससे वह कविताएं और भी खूबसूरत हो जाती है।

उनका यह भी मानना है कि आजकल लोगों में प्रेरणा की कमी हो गई है। लोग अपने और अपने प्रकृति से दूर होते जा रहे हैं। वह चाहती है कि उनकी कविताएं लोगों को प्रेरणा दें। उनकी यही महान सोच उन्हें एक बेहतरीन कवियत्री बनाती है। उनकी कविताओं में इस तरह की सभी खूबियां हैं जो एक इंसान को बदलने के लिए काफी है।  

बंजारो की ज़िन्दगी

बंजारो सी लगती है अब ये ज़िन्दगी…

रेगिस्तान की रेतों की तरह…

हाथों से फिसलती ये ज़िन्दगी…

ना जाने किस मोड़ पर आकर रूकेगी…

ख्वाहिशों के मौसम में…

बदलाव की बयार ना जाने…

किस आंगन में जाकर खत्म होगी।

हारते हुए इंसान को…

इश्क़ की तन्हाइयों ने ज़ख़्म काफी गहरा दिया है वक़्त की अदालत ने…

सबका चेहरा बेनकाब किया…

किसी ने आकर मेरे ज़ख़्म सिले नहीं…

उस गहरे ज़ख़्म पर…

मरहम भी खुद से लगाई हूं जो मेरे अपनों की खंजर से मिली है।

बार बार उठने की कोशिश भी….

नाकाम सी लगने लगी है ,हर दफा…

रिश्तों की किश्त ढोते ढोते…

ज़िन्दगी उलझ सी गई है ।अपनी उलझन को…

सुलझा सुलझा कर…

अब थक सी गई हूं।

आंखों में नमी…

अब बचा नहीं, किसी और से अब दिल लगा नहीं…

किसी के इंतजार में…

पत्थर दिल सी हो गई हूं…

ख्वाब टूटकर बिखर गए…

मगर किस्मत से हार नहीं मानी हूं। तन्हाइयों का साथ देते देते…

खुद को कही भूल बैठी हूं…

खुशियों की दस्तक से…

इक अनकही सी फासला बना बैठी हूं …

अब खुद को सौप देना चाहती हूं…

उन खामोशियों को…

जिसके बाद कोई कीमत ना चुकानी पड़ी…

किसी को आवाज़ लगाने की।

अब बस थक कर सो जाना चाहती हूं…

तुम्हारी बाहों में सुकून मिले ऐसी ख्वाइश से खुद को सौप देना चाहती हूं…

उन आसमानों के बाहों में…

जहां से सब कुछ धुंधला सा लगे…

जहां मुझे कोई ढूंढ़ ना सके।

बस बहुत जी ली…

ये खोखली सी ज़िन्दगी…

अब हार जाना चाहती हूं…

खुद की ख्वाहिशों भरी उम्मीदों से…

धड़कन को बंद कर ,अपनी सांसों को मिला देना चाहती हूं…

आसमानों के खुली फिज़ाओं में, सोचती हूं …

एक बार ही सही अपने ख्वाब को मुकम्मल कर लूं…

अपनी होंठों की मुस्कान को…

फिर से वापिस ले आऊ…

छोड़ जाऊ जमाने के  इन रीति रिवाजों को…

और जी लू अपने अल्हड़पन को…

बेझिझक सी, बेपरवाह सी, बेधड़क सी, बेख़ौफ़ सी ।।

 

खुशियों की तलाश

ना ही तुम हमें किसी बंधन में बांध पाए ,

ना ही चाहत के सिलसिले में मेरा हाथ थाम पाए।

ख्वाहिशों के मौसम में तुम भी कुछ बदल से गए,

मेरे जज्बातों की आंधी में तुम भी थोड़ा बहक से गए ।

तुम्हें सोच के ख़ुद के ख्वाबों से हम रिश्ता निभा नहीं पाए,

तेरे लिए हम सब कुछ पाकर भी खुद से ही हार गए।

हर दफा ,गलत इंसान से इश्क़ करने की गुस्ताखी करते गए ,

मगर ये कम्बक्त दिल भी सबको माफ करके ,दिल के टुकड़ों को खुद से ही जोड़ते गए।

कभी वो मिला ही नहीं, जिनकी मोहब्बत मिलने से छणिक भर भी दिल को सुकून मिले।

जो भी मिले रास्ते में ,बस मेरे टूटे हुए दिल को जोड़कर ,फिर से तोड़ते गए।

हम मोहब्बत की हर तकलीफ को ,दिल के किसी कोने में दफन करते गए।

बार बार टूटकर बिखरने के बावजूद भी किसी और के लिए खुद की ज़िन्दगी को तबाह करते गए।

एक टूटे हुए दर्पण की तरह, अपने दिल के भी टुकड़े टुकड़े करते गए।

हर दफा ना चाहते हुए भी झूठी तसल्ली देकर दिल को दिलासा दिलाते गए।

हर तकलीफों को किनारे रखकर, सुकुन की तलाश में ज़िन्दगी को जिते चले गए।

दिल्लगी ना करने की कोशिश में तुझसे दूर होते गए ,

फिर भी, ना जाने क्यूं , तुझे देखकर ये ख्याल हमेशा बदलते गए।

झूठ और फरेब से भरे इश्क़ की इन गलियों में ,दिल अपना लुटाते गए

मोहब्बत और किस्मत के खेल में जीत हासिल करने की बजाय खुद के दिल को हारते गए।

भला किस्मत से इश्क़ कब जीत पाया है -२

ये जानकर दिल को समझाते गए और इश्क़ की दुनिया में खुद की खुशियां तलाशते गए।

इश्क़ की दुनिया में खुद की खुशियां तलाशते गए ।।

RSBL Has World’s First Encrypted QR-Coded Gold Coins Says Mr Prithviraj Kothari Managing Director Of RSBL

Gold investments are sacred to most Indians. However, for years now, buyers have been adversely affected by the gush of fakes in the market. With very little known about identifying them, investors have been duped with no recourse. Bringing an end to their plight is RiddiSiddhi Bullions Ltd. (RSBL) through their QR-coded encrypted gold coins – a first in the world. RSBL, India’s top bullion brand, has led the modernization of the bullion industry through its various offline and online initiatives. Now, with their encrypted QR-coded minted gold coins, they hope to end the menace of fakes. They have rolled these new RSBL Coins on 17th February 2020 and set yet another benchmark in the global bullion industry.

The new coins will be available in all quantities – from 1 gm. to 100 gms. The primary objective is to bring in more transparency in a market that’s flooded with fakes. The gold coins can be bought from the retail outlets, while the B2B buyers can purchase them from the RSBL Spot terminal. Once purchased, all one has to do is scan it under the RSBL Spot app and details like brand, purity and weight will immediately appear on the screen. While the app is available on Google Play and on the Apple Store as well, this feature is currently live for Android users and will soon be live on iOS platforms too. The coins, which come in tamperproof packaging, are a first in the global bullion market with its scannable QR-codes.

Said Mr. Prithviraj Kothari, Managing Director of RSBL “At RSBL, we have our ears to the ground and have been trying to innovate solutions, for many years, for our buyers who have been struggling with the challenge of identifying fake gold coins from original. A lot of methods have been in place, but none of them were foolproof. After a lot of research and trials, we are launching our encrypted QR-coded gold coins, a first in the world. This will provide security not just to buyers but also jewellers who can identify a genuine RSBL gold coin by simply scanning it on the RSBL Spot app. It has never been easier or more fail-safe. We are sure that, like all our earlier digitization initiatives, this too will be embraced with open arms. We are here to help our community and are happy to take the global industry one step forward with our initiative. The response will inspire us to keep innovating and making the bullion market more progressive with every step”

RSBL has led the industry for over 25 years, and even launched India’s first and only electronic and over the counter bullion trading system, RSBL SPOT in 2008. Through RSBL eCoins, the company made the entire process of buying and selling gold and platinum coins transparent and simple. The company has won numerous awards for its contribution to the industry. With 3,500+ clients for RSBL Spot Terminal and a solid pan-India presence, RSBL is India’s most trusted bullion brand.

With the new QR-coded encrypted gold coins, RSBL has made the bullion industry more accessible to the common buyer under leadership of Mr. Prithviraj Kothari.

Augmont App Brings Together The Best Of Online And Offline Purchase Options With Its Advanced Features And Solid Offline Presence – Says Sachin Kothari Director Of Augmont

Exclusive Interview

Q.1 Please tell us more about Augmont app? How does it work?

Augmont App is a platform that helps buyers to purchase gold and silver just with a tap of your finger at the Best Price Guaranteed. When you think, the traditional way of buying gold comes with a lot of inconvenience. Buyers have to make physical trips to a jeweler, pay unverified prices, and worry about purity and then about storing it safely. We wanted to acknowledge all these problems and come up with a one-stop solution. Being one of the best and innovative precious metal company in the country, we wanted to give our consumers the best solution possible. Hence, with the help of technology we introduced Augmont App earlier last year.

Augmont app brings together the best of online and offline purchase options with its advanced features and solid offline presence. Being one of the largest gold refineries in India, we have way more control over quality compared to our other counterparts and is able to offer benchmark prices as compared to any other platform and the same benefit is made available to the retail consumers. Buyers can purchase gold at lowest price of Re.1/- giving them the power to invest in gold and silver as per their convenience. Customers can ask for home delivery of physical gold as low as 0.1 gram which is a Gold coin costing less than Rs.500/- . All you have to do is register on our app, enter the amount of gold you wish to purchase select the mode of payment and the rest is taken care by us. We will store the physical gold in a 100% secured lockers that is controlled and monitored by IDBI Trusteeship Services. The gold stored is so safe that even Augmont cannot access it unless the customer asks for doorstep delivery or decides to sell back to the company. For those who like to keep their gold with themselves, we will deliver it to your doorstep within 3 days to virtually every Indian corner.

For buyers who want to buy gold regularly in a disciplined manner, there is the option of very convenient monthly SIPs, available in multiples of 1000.

If one wishes to encash profits, a few simple taps on the app help in selling your gold at real-time market prices, and the money appears within minutes in the bank account. And no matter how much gold you buy, it is all 999 pure, ensuring you get nothing but the best.

Q.2 Who are your customers and how the app benefits them?

Anyone with a Smartphone who wants to buy or invest in gold through our app is our customer. We have received request for gold worth Re. 1/- to Rs.1 crore. We get request from a normal individual to a retailer. Large number of demand through our app comes from South India.

As mentioned earlier, our app is a one-stop solution to all the problems that buyers face while purchasing gold traditionally. Additionally it provides buyers with the flexibility of choosing the amount and/or quantity of gold as per their convenience.

Q.3 Where do you store the physical gold?

Once the gold is purchased it is stored in a 100% secured locker which is regulated by IDBI trusteeship services. We are very particular about the safety of the gold purchased by our buyers and don’t compromise with the safety of the products whatsoever.

4 Do you think online gold buying is becoming an alternative for people who don’t want to go out and buy gold from retail stores?

Definitely. Today with the easy accessibility of technology the process of buying is made very convenient. It may be buying clothes, food or even gold the digital medium is the most preferred and comfortable medium of purchasing today especially with the millennial who want everything at the tip of their finger. Why go out when you can get it at your door step? That’s the ideology of the generation today and digi-gold just fits perfectly. Of course, the concept is new and it will take some time for everyone to be comfortable with it without any apprehensions but it’s working very well with our young audience.

Q.5 Do you think online will replace offline in future? If yes then why?

In the longer run Omni-Channel will lead the way. It’s not about Online or Offline, it’s about the right balance between Online and Offline. For E.g., Big retail brands like Walmart have their investment in e-commerce brands like Flipkart, thus having both offline and online presence. Offline outlets are using online methods to ease customers’ life. Hence, Omni-Channel is the future.

Sharing insights during the virtual panel discussion held on the theme ‘Digital Health – Life Sciences 4.0: Disruptive Technology or Just a Disruption’ with the sub-theme ‘Industry impact and business continuity post-COVID-19: Production, supply, distribution, product innovation, global trade norms and challenges, the Hon’ble Minister pointed out that the topic is very relevant and useful given the current situation. Comparing CorpGini’s initiative with the ‘Samudra Manthan,’ the Minister said that the sessions being held over three days will yield a nectar that will enable India to be self-sufficient and confident, even bigger in the pharma and healthcare sectors, driven by innovation.

Mahavir Lunawat, Group Founder, Pantomath, and Co-Founder, CorpGini, said, “We believe, pharma and healthcare industry is poised to witness unprecedented advancements. Be it ‘point of care’ or wearables or virtual inspection mechanism, or telemedicine or drug discovery by machine learning, technology is going to play an extremely significant role in pharma industry. Towards India’s quest to become ‘pharmacy of the world’, significant efforts need to be taken across segments. Besides, there is dire need to improve medical infrastructure on priority.  We are working very actively in pharma and healthcare industry and bring globally curated innovative solutions to help solve industry problems.”

Amit Jain, Co-Founder & CEO, CorpGini, expressed happiness with the government’s support for innovation and said that the minister’s inspiring words would motivate start-ups to raise benchmarks by leveraging the strengths provided by the CorpGini platform, “Our attempt is to see how corporates and start-ups can bridge the gap. We have two more days of virtual panel discussions lined up. In tomorrow’s first session we will be talking about the market from an investor’s perspective. The second session will look at the ‘new normal.’ The start-up showcase will be tomorrow and the day after.”

During his address, Shri Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Hon’ble Minister of State for Health & Family Welfare, GoI, underlined the fact that “60% of the medicines in the world are exported from India. It is rightly said that India holds a 30% market share. From a situation where we had none, today there are 641 test labs across India. Testing machines, PPE kits have been created within India, making us truly ‘AtmaNirbhar.’ PM Narendra Modi had set a target for conducting one lakh tests a day before May 31st, we have already surpassed that and have done 1,22,000 tests per day. India of 21st century will be a global inspiration for the development of the world. Today we have 600 PPE kits manufacturers making 3.5 lakh kits per day, sending them to all states. ‘Make in India’ has been given a boost, making India self-sufficient as well. Medical colleges have been augmented, we are not just adhering to global parameters but also exceeding them.”

“As soon as the COVID-19 pandemic was declared, PM Narendra Modi asked our ministry to start working on a solution. We have been monitoring what is happening across India and the world. A Group of Ministers was immediately convened and we have been expediting the search for a vaccine. Stopping International air travel to India, announcing the lockdown were important steps due to which today we are better off than the world. The Indian government’s thinking has been very good. The numbers are rising but if our PM hadn’t displayed foresight, the situation would have been much worse. Even developed countries having all the healthcare infrastructure and equipment can’t deal with COVID-19,” he added.

“Take care of yourself and others, adhere to lockdown norms. We have to learn to live with COVID-19, be prepared for lockdown 5.0. The government has relaxed norms during lockdown 4.0. Our self-confidence has not reduced and we have despite the circumstances even allowed economic activity to resume, returned migrants to their native place. The lockdown enables us to keep numbers in control. Steps have been taken to ensure that the poor are not left hungry. In which other country does the PM himself call people in villages and ask how they are coping with and managing the situation?” the Minister affirmed.

“A lot of healthcare innovations have been possible in India. The Indian government has been very supportive of innovative solutions. We don’t think just about ourselves, we care about the entire world. Crores of people have benefited from Ayushman Bharat. 21,000 hospitals from both, public and private sector have joined with it. We have 1.5 lakh primary health centres and will be transforming them into Health and Wellness centres, making the shift from illness to wellness. Telemedicine has progressed during COVID-19, connecting to even remote villages. People have benefitted a lot from this. Check-up systems have been enhanced. We want to move towards universal healthcare. We want to make check-ups affordable and easy to access. Health for all is a tradition in India. During COVID-19 we have issued healthcare advisories. We aim to make healthcare affordable with a holistic approach,” the Minister emphasized.

Nilesh Jain, Venture Partner Z Nation Lab, Founder Clinivantage Healthcare Technologies, moderated the panel. “During the last two and half months, while India has been under lockdown, pharma has been looking at innovation in a very different way, PM’s ‘AtmaNirbhar Bharat’ applies to pharma, we need to identify how we can be self-sufficient. Innovation is going to be the centrepiece of the pharma industry going forward” he opined.

Arvind Kumar Pandian, Strategic Partnerships, USAID, said, “The biggest challenge for innovations is access to market and access to capital. We help in solving that. We have made 1.4 bn investments, we work closely with the national and state governments. The challenge for innovators is getting access to large markets. We have partnered with National Health Authority and are providing $50 mn grants for innovators.”

Y.K. Gupta, Technical Committee (GLP Program) Program in DST on Digital Health, explained, “Any drug development requires clinical trial and clinical trials due to COVID-19 have been a challenge. If there is a large missing data, ultimately getting to a conclusion is a challenge. So the question can startups and pharma industry use AI for data usage and study to get more accurate results? The other challenge that can be solved is remote clinical trials and the caretaker can be the moderator.”

Sudarshan Jain, Secretary-General, Indian Pharmaceutical Alliance, said, “COVID-19 is a great opportunity; any adversity has to be transformed into an opportunity. There’s outstanding work that is being done in India. India controls 60% of the vaccine market. The timeframe for vaccine development in India has been reduced from 10 years to 1 year.”

DineshHYPERLINK “https://twitter.com/dinesh_dua” HYPERLINK “https://twitter.com/dinesh_dua”Dua, Chairman, HYPERLINK “https://twitter.com/Pharmexcil”Pharmexcil (Pharmaceuticals Export Promotion Council of India), said, “India is a great destination for doing bio-equivalence clinical trials. There is cost-effectiveness, precision, and knowledge in India. I think the first COVID-19 vaccine will come from India. By September or December, we will have a solution to this pandemic.”

Umang Chaturvedi, Head of Policy, Mylan Lab, said “A major concern is the dependence on other countries for the raw materials for medical equipment. The whole medical education infrastructure should be looked after. It is important to have a quick regulatory ecosystem.”

The proceedings concluded with Neha Jain, co-founder, CorpGini, thanking the session partners FICCI and Pharmexcil.

CorpGini will continue to conduct sector-specific panel discussions moving forward true to its ethos of being a global innovation platform connecting corporates and startups across the globe.

Before this, it had organised a Virtual Panel Discussion on ‘Re-thinking Real Estate Marketing Considering the COVID Situation,’ on May 16, 2020. Before that, the ‘Future of Design & Construction’ sessions organised by CorpGini from April 20-22, 2020 had witnessed an amalgamation of expertise from varied professionals within the design and construction community and the financiers backing the construction industry, with globally acclaimed thought leaders Sir Ratan Tata, Padmashri Hafeez Contractor and many more.

These sessions followed the first virtual panel discussion ‘In the fight against COVID-19 to solve corporate sustainability and growth challenges’  held from April 6, 2020 onwards, which witnessed participation from 50+ leaders, 10,000 plus corporates and 100 + startups. 

CorpGini, founded in 2019, is an initiative by Pantomath Group and Z Nation Lab that connects leading corporates to innovative startups that are building solutions that solve industry-wise problems. The panel discussion will be followed by select pitches from CEOs of startups which can provide valuable solutions to Corporates around key areas of challenges in present times.

The HPA Punch will, hence, help aid all participants to not just feel a sense of community in this time of crisis, but also aid as a platform for prospective business development and lead generation. Via the virtual sessions, will be a welcome relief in the times of quarantine and self-isolation; helping participants to feel like they belong to a larger global community that is trying to fight this battle together.

Even After Ostracizing For 9 years 999 Is Crossing 9 Cherishing Memories

A movie that made us foresee the crumbling of the Mullaperiyar dam predicted to fall in July 2020 by Nostradamus. Even the supreme Indian Parliament standing still in the name of a movie. Two states closed their borders and involving in a fight between each other. Thousands of volunteering protesters flowing into Mullaperiyar daily. Tamil Nadu Government is continuing the ban even after the Supreme court granted permission for the release. They also denied putting up of posters through movie organizations and asking whichever theatre that came forward to show the movie to pay the entire revenue as fine. They banned satellite rights of the film, which almost got to the final step of gaining the most prestigious Oscar and assigning hundreds of Cyber soldiers to tamper with the IMDB rating. Even the history of world cinema hasn’t witnessed such atrocious activities to sabotage a movie. The ban, which gets renewed every six months, got renewed last March 20 again.

This corona era’s holidays are offering a rebirth to the many movies that got sunk in our soul’s Dam. Released 9 years ago, a Hollywood movie, that created a wave of amusement, is brimming up our search engines again as it gears to celebrate its tenth anniversary.

9 main characters, 9 locations, 9 emotions, 9 songs. 9 diverse faces of lost love, National Award winners from 9 different film industries, story developing aligning with the positioning of 9 planets, filming of Ayurveda treatment methods in 9 ways of treatment, above all, a plot that cherished 9 tracts. These 9 are the virtues that made this movie outstanding.

Directed by Dr. Sohan Roy and released in 2011, DAM 999 has novelties numerous enough to fill a dam. Apart from gaining a reputed position among the Oscar-shortlisted movies, the movie’s script, also written by Sohan Roy, was placed in the Oscar Academy Library’s (Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) permanent core collection.

In 2011, this movie’s release unleashed a “water bomb” of controversies. It was also an era when the news about central Kerala, which lies in the lap of Mullaperiyar dam, gave sleepless nights to the Malayalee community all around the world. When human lovers, who got a clear picture of the Dam’s hazardous security issues through the visualization of this movie, they resolved to go for a stringent rebellion. But, Tamil Nadu banned the movie’s release.

History is what enlightened the movie’s director on the fact that dams which give people with the boons of water and light, also has the power to put off their life’s light forever. In 1975, 2,50,000 people were mass murdered by Banqiao Dam in China. Wikipedia refers to it as the tallest among the 6 oldest dams across the globe and that it is 7 times taller than Banqiao Dam. These facts vividly explain the intensity of horror that was collecting in the Mullaperiyar dam along with water.

Just like emotions and consciousness make a man think, it urged Sohan Roy to sit and ponder. Afterward, he filmed the documentary named “Dams: The Lethal Water Bombs” and shared his concerns with society. The short film secured three awards from Los Angeles Movie Festival and Movie awards the very next year itself and continued to acquire about 23 international awards in the coming years.

When a twenty-one-minute movie was subject to acknowledgment, he realized the seamless opportunities a commercial film made on the same concept could receive. It urged him to make a movie on a larger canvas. In contrast to “Titanic” movie’s concept of coincidental disaster, a film which pictures human-made disaster can fulfil the actual goal of the art of movie-making- bringing awareness. With this thought in mind, he started conceptualizing it in him. The director spent the entire savings made through 16 years long hard work for this ten million budget debut film, without fathoming that he is stepping into a great disaster.

    

By the time “DAM 999” was ready for release, it had already received so many accolades. The movie has cast 16 national award winners, and became the first Indian movie to implement 2D to 3D “conversion technology.” The film was also simultaneously released in 5 world languages. It was shot aboard the largest ship in the world’s history, making it the first Indian film that had incorporated the water graphics technology. DAM999 was the first Indian movie produced in the Hollywood format. It was distributed by the world-famous production and distribution company “Warner Bros.” Banned in the state, even before its release, it became super hit, thanks to the controversies of actor created due to actor Thilakan and Mullaperiyar, etc. These exciting facts made the movie stand out, which comes to a total of nine specialties, including controversies and novelties during release time.

The film was also a “super-hit” in terms of the number of awards it had received. It was also shortlisted for Oscar and received five entries in three categories. Besides this, the movie got selected to compete in twelve categories for the very next year’s Golden Rooster Awards. Dam 999 is also the first Indian movie that to have obtained entry to this award, which is also popularly known as the “Chinese Oscar.”

In the year of 2013, the cinema received “Best Director” and “Best feature film” awards at the Cinerockholm International Film Festival; Three awards including “Special Jury Award,” “Best Movie of Festival” and “Best International Feature Film” from International Film Festival for Environment Health and Cultural Festival; “Best English Film Award” in Sangli film Festival, and more. The movie was also honored with the “Judge’s Favourite Award” at the “Antigua & Barbuda Film Festival” while the organizers honored Director Sohan Roy with a special award.

The movie got selected in about 130 film festivals including the internationally acclaimed Tehran Film Festival, Jaipur International Film Festival, Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival, America’s Chain NYC Festival, Louisville International Film Festival, Laughlin International Film Festival, Trinity International Film Festival, and Italy’s Salento International Film Festival. Alongside this, the film had also achieved California’s Global Music Award.

“Biz TV Network” based in UAE is the producer of “DAM 999”. Many National Award winners from different states have associated with the film’s crew. Ajay Vincent and music by Ouseppachan did the cinematography. Vinay Rai, Ashish Vidyarthi, Rajit Kapur, Vimala Raman, Linda Arsenio, Joshua Frederick. The film introduced the latest technologies in sound recording and camera, which Indian cinema had never experienced before.

If there is a record for creating novelty lining a range of innovations, that award will also go to DAM 999. The film had created nine dimensions of aesthetic appreciation to gratify the aesthetic demands of nine different categories of film viewers.

The film imparts scientific facts about a disaster that dams can cause for those who have built up dams of anxiety in their minds, which includes concerns about Mullaperiyar. To music lovers, this movie is a musical entertainer, and it takes the family audience to a state of emotional “sethubandhanam.” For those who believe in India’s indigenous healing practices, they experienced it that way. At the same time, the lovers of astrology will take it as an astrological movie. Apart from that, it will be experienced by those who believe in India’s cultural diversities, as a movie that imparts the cultural traditions to the new generation. The panoramic beauty of various landscapes will enchant travellers because the film depicts multiple sea voyages and navigational characters. The ninth feature of the movie is the romantic experience it gives to both lovers as well as disappointed lovers. It will not be a wonder even if they experience it as a sole dedication to them as the fictional works through the nine emotions of love and despair.

These many reasons are enough to curb an average person’s curiosity about why there are so many “nines” in the title of DAM 999. Doesn’t it feel like the director has synchronized nine features in production, release, and appreciation into the title? But this is not the secret behind the “nines”… That is the twist!

Vishakham Thirunal Ramavarma, the ruler of the erstwhile Travancore princely state, had signed an agreement with the British for 999 years, known as “Periyar Paattakkarar” ( Periyar Lease Agreement). The British people were authorized to construct the Mullaperiyar Dam and to distribute the water of Periyar to Tamil Nadu via the Vaigai river for 999 years. This agreement came into force on 1886 October 29. The Achyuthamenon Government had renewed the agreement post-independence.

Nobody has any grievances in supplying water to Tamil Nadu. But isn’t it atrocious to argue that Kerala has no right to rebuild the Dam for 999 years? Will a Dam which starts to give away after about a hundred years stay secure for 999 years?

Was that 999 suffixed to “DAM” because the “999” is a more significant water bomb than the Dam itself?

Only the movie’s everything, its director, ostracized before years and who still wanders around without getting moksha knows it!
