The moment the
General Body assembled on 9 March, 2015,
NCP Corporator Suraj
Patil wanted to know
why the proposal for
raising the emoluments of the school

the agenda. Sabu
Daniel (nominated –
NCP) was quick to intervene and ask why
the proposal for the development of the burial
ground had not been
included. They complained that the ad-

their suggestions lightly. Many more corporators, including some

Naik explained that
both the proposals are
ready; however they
could not be put on the
agenda as the Commissioner had not put his
signatures on them.
“The proposals will be
included in the next
meeting,” he explained.
But the explanation did
not satisfy the members who continued
their dharna. Some of
them also resorted to
slogan shouting which
gave rise to a noisy situation. Some of them
said that the delay is

Considering the
strong feelings of the
members, house leader
Anant Sutar said that
the proceedings should
be adjourned till normalcy returned. That
too did not seem to satisfy the members. Finally, the Mayor adjourned the house till

Big robber gang busted
Four members of the gang arrested
By Vikram Gaikwad
NERUL: Following
smart detection, the
police have managed to
arrest four members of
the gang that had broken into a residence in
Nerul and stolen Rs
23,000 in cash and other valuables on Tuesday last. The names of
the arrested are given
as Hanumant Shinde
(32), Santosh Rathod
(26).Pravin Dalvi (22)
and Babloo Yadav.
They, along with three
or four other members
of the gang, had broken
into a residential apartment in Sea View building in the wee hours of
3 March, 2015. They
had tied the watchman
hands and feet before
breaking into the
house. After the robbery, they escaped in a
red tempo which had
been kept waiting a
short distance away.
From the description of
the culprits given by
the watchman and on
the basis of information
collected from police informers, they prepared
a sketch of the tempo
and kept a watch on it.
In the wee hours of Friday last, they saw a
tempo answering to
that description and
hailed it to a stop un-
der the LP flyover. It
was occupied by four
men who also answered
to the description given
by the watchman. Accordingly, they were
detained and during the
interrogation that followed, they admitted to
breaking into the house
and committing the robbery. A search of their
persons also yielded
items used in house
breaks. The instruments and the tempo
have been confiscated
and case of robbery has
been registered against
them. A man hunt has
been launched for their
missing associates.

semis at the same venue lost their former
under-19 India’s World
Cup captain and opener Unmukt Chand (0)
to medium pacer Imtiyaz Ahmed (3/23) in
the very second ball of
their run chase. Imtiyaz who had to face
the wrath of Sunny
Singh (19) who struck
three consecutive
boundaries in the same
over and the only six of
the match in the next
over, however had the
last laugh. He castled
Sunny with the first
ball of his very next

delight of his team
mates dismissed experienced Indian all
rounder Yusuf Pathan

over managed to hold
his end and in the company of his skipper ensured that his team
score 66 at the half way
stage. The duo put on
important 97 runs in
81 balls for the fourth
wicket before Yogesh
(48) misread a slower
one from and was
trapped leg before by
Shaurya in the 16 th
over, even as his team
needed 16 runs for a

who played flawlessly
all around the wickets
without taking any risk
throughout, not only
completed his half century with a boundary to
square leg region, but
also guided his team
home with another
with two overs to spare.
Reliance 1 were awarded Rs 7 lakhs for their

deep by Unmukt)
turned to be the turning point in CAG’s innings which in the end
stuttered to 135 for 9 in
their allotted 20 overs.
“It was good win in
the end and an important one for our team
which has been eyeing
this trophy for a long
time. The important
thing was to play till
the end of the 15th or
16th over as a senior
player guide the youngsters in high pressure
situation. Yuzvendra
Chahal who was playing his first game in the
tournament bowled
very well to get us back
in the match” said a
delighted Parthiv Patel, skipper of the Reli-
ance 1 who also won
Player of the Tournament award for his 211
runs in six innings (@
Avg of 52.75) and seven catches.
“Playing our maiden final I thought we
were well placed (61/0)
at one stage but our
latter batsmen did not
capitalize on the start.
Had some of the catches and half chances
been taken, things
would have been different. However I
would like to thank the

Wrong economic theories
There are only three economic systems surviving in the world today. The first is the American model where every initiative on development comes from people – the capitalist private
sector. Let us remember that the capitalists are
a part of the populace. The second is the Chinese model under which only three classes, rather agencies, are recognized – the capitalist, the
proletariat and the government which is personified in the communist party. Its unwritten commandment is that the worker should work or toil
in order to earn a living. The proletariat workers are required to work either in the factories
or the farms. That emphasis on work is what put
the Chinese economy in top gear for a few decades. On the contrary, under the socialism –
the third system – that is prevalent in India the
proletariat worker is not compelled to work. His
needs are satisfied with the generous free bees
given by the government. The system has been
at work for the last over six decades and the
ruling parties irrespective of their economic
proclivities, have bent backwards to satisfy the
proletariat worker with more and more. The latest TV advertisement released by the government tells precisely that. The ad shows one of
the working class men telling his colleague that
it is only 15 days he has been attending a MNREGA work site and the wages have already
been credited to his bank account! It doesn’t
tell what work he has done or how much has
been done! The previous UPA government went
on giving so much that it reached the point
where there was nothing left in the treasury to
give. Former finance minister P Chidambaram
admitted the mistake and that was the main reason for sending inflation zooming. At one point
it touched 14%, admitted Chidambaram. Too
many free bees will have two adverse effects:
one, it was cause inflation and two, it will make
the workers lazy. Such a situation was not sustainable for long. Prime Minister Nareendra
Modi tried to change it all. During his long election campaigns, he emphasized only on one thing
– jobs. That implied that one has to work and
sweat in order to earn one’s living. People responded overwhelmingly by voting Bharatiya
Janata Party to power. Surprisingly, the good
man Arvind Kejriwal tried to entice the people
of Delhi with too many free bees. He offered free
water and subsidized electricity to major sections of the society. Whether such a system is
sustainable will be known soon. People are
bound to over (mis-) use water because it is available free. They will realize that their happiness
is short lived when their taps run dry. Assuming
that Kejriwal succeeds in arm twisting the union
government to finance the free-water scheme,
the happy days are bound to end because there
cannot be enough water for everybody. Kajriwal
and his voters will realize their folly soon enough
in the same manner UPA stalwarts did it a few
months ago. Incidentally, why not bring the national cleanliness campaign under the MNREGA?

Cont. from pg. 5
It was a tremendous show by a young Indian side. A hard fought win but a win nonetheless against West Indies. Despite having a galaxy of batsmen in the Indian side,
it was left to R. Ashwin to provide resistance in the end to avoid further loss and
win in a comfortable way.
India also struggled on a pitch offering
plenty of bounce for the tall West Indies fast
bowlers and kept losing wickets during the
chase before holding their nerve to get over
the line with 65 balls to spare. Dhoni showed
why he is known as ‘Captain Cool’ and topscored for his side, which was reduced to
107-5 at one stage. The right-hander added
27 for the sixth wicket with Ravindra Jadeja (13) and an unbroken 51 for the seventh
with Ravichandran Ashwin (16 not out) to
take India home. Virat Kohli also contributed with a confident 33 off 36 balls and
added a crucial 43 for the third wicket with
Ajinkya Rahane (14). Jerome Taylor (two
for 33) sparked the West Indies early on,
claiming the wickets of opener Shikhar Dhawan (nine) and Rohit Sharma (seven), while
Andre Russell also claimed two for 43. However, their cause wasn’t helped by conceding 19 wides, nine from Russell’s bowling.
Such a competitive match had seemed
highly improbable when the West Indies
slumped to 85 for seven. However, a fighting
half-century from Holder, batting at number nine, and some shoddy Indian fielding,
helped revive the West Indian cause. Holder’s highest score in One-Day Internationals was just 22 until the West Indies’ previous match against South Africa, but made
it consecutive half-centuries with some clean
hitting. He was the last man to fall, caught
at long on by Virat Kohli for 57 from the
bowling of Ravi Jadeja (2-27), having faced
64 balls and hit four fours and three sixes.
Holder’s recovery mission was assisted by
India also by dropping four catches. Poor
show with the bat in accomplishing the moderate total while chasing and the poor fielding standards came to view in an open in a
league game. Jadeja dropped sitters to show
that he is prone to pressure and failed with
the bat at the crucial moment.

About Narayaneeyam
Srimad Narayaneeyam is an immortal devotional hymn praising the virtues and glories of
Lord Guruvayurappan (Lord Krishna), composed
by Melpathur Narayana Bhattatiri, a great scholar-devotee who lived in Kerala between 1559 and
1632. If Bhagavatha Purana (one of the 18
Puranas) which deals with all the nine major
and a few minor incarnations of Lord Maha Vishnu in 18,000 stanzas is the fruit, then Srimad
Narayaneeyam (which was condensed Bhagavatha Purana ) with 1036 stanzas is indeed a
sweet juice. Though originally written in Sanskrit, this great epic has been translated in almost all major Indian languages.
The name Narayaneeyam means “A book written by Narayana (the author’s name)” or “A book
written about Lord Narayana the God”.
The first 36 chapters dealt with various incarnations of Lord Vishnu, and chapters 37-88 deals
exclusively with the story of Lord Krishna. Chapters 89-99 dealt with the extolling of Vishnu as a
primeval God as well as several philosophical concepts. The last chapter is a mellifluous description of the Lord from head to foot. While reciting
the last Chapter, Melpathur was able to see Lord
Guruvayurappan before him and once he completed, he got completely cured of his disease.
Millions of devotees in the past few centauries
have benefited by the recital of Narayaneeyam and
very many of them have got cured of their diseases
especially those caused by Vatham (Rheumatism).
There are very many commentaries available
for Narayaneeyam in Malayalam, Tamil and English. There are also few web sites devoted only to
Narayaneeyam. One of them contains, the entire
text, with word by word meaning:

Ajitabh Bachchan opens
Ayurmurm unit in Kharghar
By Umesh Parida
PANVEL: The Kerala
style treatment ‘Ayurmurm’ unit was opened
by Ajitabh Bachchan in
Kharghar recently. The
mall was inaugurated
in the Aman Khushal
House opposite the Little World Mall here.
The Ayurvedic Centre set up by Mehraj
Khan will treat the patients using the traditional Kerala way. However, in few cases surgery will be conducted
in the centre depending
upon the patients’ requirement.
Addressing the
gathering, Ajitabh
Bachchan hoped that
people will benefit a lot
from this ayurvedic
treatment centre. The
oldest Bachchan during
the inauguration visited the units of the
Ayurvedic Centre.
15 illegal encroachers to be hit
by the NMMC and MIDC action
By Umesh Parida
PAWNE: The Navi
Mumbai Municipal
Corporation has come
up with a report of
illegal encroachers.
The fifteen encroachers will face the MIDC
and NMMC action
any time in Pawne
area. This is learnt
from a NMMC reply
to corporator
Madhukar B Mukadam.
The encroachers
have illegally occupied
a plot near Shiv
Mandir in Pawne. Out
of the fifteen illegal
encroachers, one has
constructed concrete
work whereas thirteen
have constructed
formal slums and one
has done the illegal
construction with
trees. They all will
face the NMMC heat
very soon.
Replying to the
corporator, the NMMC
authorities said “The
said land has not been
handed over to the
civic body. The land
belongs to the MIDC.
Hence the primary
responsibility of the
illegal encroachment
removal is upon the
MIDC.” However, the
NMMC is eying the
plot for future use.
Keeping in mind
the land to be handed
over to the civic body
the NMMC had acted
against the illegal
encroachers on 16
March 2012 and 9
May 2013. Despite the
NMMC action, the
illegal encroachers
again occupied the
land. The action
seems to have little
impact upon the
The NMMC says
that the MIDC will be
informed further to
have a joint action
against the illegal
encroachment with
the industrial body.
Though the NMMC is
looking forward to
taking action again,
the civic body election
due in April is bound
to make them go slow
in this matter. After
the election results
the scenario may
change depending
upon the mandate.
Whether the plot will
be handed over to the
NMMC by then is to
be seen.
Drunken brawl ends in murder
Father-son duo land in police custody
By Vikram Gaikwad
URAN: A father and
son duo have been arrested on the charge of
killing a neighbor following a flimsy spat
over noise.
The victim, Amol
Girijappa Bhalerao (30)
was a resident of
Bokadvira village near
Uran. The two accused,
Kisan Gagan Kale (44)
and his son, Dhanaji
Kisan Kale (22) also
lived in the neighbourhood. On 6 March, the
day of Holi, the two had
consumed much liquor
and were under its influence. Intoxicated
Dhanaji Kale went
home singing loud
songs. Amol, who was
a driver by profession,
wanted to start work
early the next morning
and wanted to take rest
but Dhanaji’s singing
was causing his trouble. So he went to Kale
and requested him to
bring down the volume.
That was disliked by
the Kales who picked up
a spat with him. In the
course of the exchanges that followed, Dhanaji picked up a kitchen knife and stabbed
Amol in the stomach.
He sustained severe injuries and though he
was rushed to NMMC
hospital in Vashi, he
succumbed to his injuries on Saturday afternoon.
After the outrage,
the Kales had gone under ground. After some

Uncertainty still exists a decade after
construction of houses at Varlipada
By Umesh Parida
PAWNE: The residential units located in
Varlipada were supposed to be rehabilitated. However, years after the houses were constructed, no solution
has been reached between the residents and
the civic body yet. This
is learnt from the civic
body’s reply to the local
corporator Madhukar
Mukadam on January15.
The Navi Mumbai
Municipal Corporations
official says, “As the
chemical units were
threatening the life of
residents they had to be
rehabilitated. The slum
dwellers were to be resettled on plot nos C
498 and 505 measuring
5844 sq m. The NMMC
had passed a resolution
in 2003 to construct
houses. Accordingly 70
houses were constructed by December 2005
with all the facilities.
The civic body had held
discussion with the beneficiaries in 2005 and
2006. The beneficiaries
have been informed by
the NMMC through
registered post to take
over the houses but
they have objected to

houses are smaller in
He added, “Then
Commissioner had visited the area in 2008
and had proposed for
merging two houses to
make it one. The
NMMC general body
had approved the proposal which would fetch
more houses to the beneficiaries. The tribals
again turned down the
proposal. Then in 2009
the civic body issued
notices to the tribals
and thereafter undertook action to remove
the encroachments.
However the MIDC action faced stern opposition from the residents
forcing the MIDC to
stop its action.”
“Following this

Women’s Day celebration organized
by Stellant Communication
By Chandrashekhar Hendve
the occasion of International Women’s Day,
60 women with interesting backgrounds
came forward to be
change-makers in life
by promoting women
entrepreneurship and
encouraging the entrepreneurial spirit of
Stellant Communication has been organizing the party for
three consecutive years
now. The idea is to network and guide each
other/support/contribute time to help other
ladies and give them a
leg up in every way possible. Also, encourage
using each other’s products and services. A
Marketing person can
give promotion tips to
an entrepreneur, an
Image Consultant can
help you improve your
personal image, a Social Media expert can
guide you on how to
best use the medium, a
HR lady can share tips
on hiring the right person and a Finance lady
can tell you all about
managing and growing
your money.
Professionals, entrepreneurs, self-employed ladies including,
a CFO, Forensic accountant at KPMG, Director of a leading
Fashion Institute, Director at a CA firm, a
film maker, author,
poet, DJ, blogger, , bakers, HR, events, fitness, doctor, neurosurgeon, image consultant, trainer, coach, jewellery designer, tarot
card reader, singer, a
ladies cab service, car
rally winner, youngest
mentalist, mountaineer and many more,
were present at Cowboys Café in Navi
Mumbai to celebrate
being a women.
Ms. Suhasini Ahluwalia Mehta, Director,
Stellant Communications said, “Networking
is very important for
everyone and this is a
good occasion to bring
together ladies from diverse backgrounds who
can help each other.”
The event is an excellent platform for women to know each other
in an informal environment, and then take it
forward in ways where
a real difference can be
made. Given the multitude of responsibilities
that a woman shoulders, many a times
they set aside their personal ambitions to
shoulder family responsibilities, and do not
revisit it until much
later. Perhaps this forum can help them
find their mojo back,
and encourage them to
take the first step towards the new world.
Priyanka Mohite
from Satara, who is the
second girl from Maharashtra to scale Mount
Everest along with
Princess Kimaya, who
is youngest illusionist
& mentalist in the
world, graced the occasion. There were icebreaker activities for
women entrepreneurs
to exchange experiences, share opportunities
and develop business
contacts. Other activities such as nail art
and supernatural entertainment by Princess Kimaya and
Satish Deshmukh, who
is an international entertainer, trainer and
renowned corporate
master illusionist made
an affair to remember.
