BJP, Sena to work as allies?
Navi Mumbai, Aurangabad civic elections to be fought together
By Chandrashekhar Hendve
VASHI: Bharatiya
Janata Party and Shiv
Sena, who are in alliance at the center and
in Maharashtra, will
fight the crucial civic
elections also as allies.
Presently they are likely to fight Navi Mumbai and Aurangabad
civic elections together.
The initiative is
said to have come from
none other than the
Sena chief Udhav
Thackeray. And the response from BJP was
instant. The party’s
state unit president
Raosaheb Danave
called on Udhav at Ma-
toshree where the alliance was ‘almost
sealed’, say reports.
There was however no
official announcement
to the effect.
The news is welcomed by one and all,
especially in view of
the alliance struck by
the various factions of
Republican Party of
India. It has also electrified the workers in
either party. The outlook seems to be that
together, they will be
able to sweep the elections. The development is also expected
to end many misunderstandings and
back-biting going on
at the state level. It
will also provide a new
fillip to the working of
the state government,
it is felt.

NMMC should seriously consider Two incidents of suicide in two days
Married women victims in either case
the suggestions of city traffic unit
By Dinesh Kamath
city traffic police provided the civic body
with a list of suggestions relating to how to
improve the city roads.
The traffic unit explained to the civic body
the kind of hurdles they
had to face particularly on busy roads and
junctions. The problems here become
worse especially when
there are signboards
and signals missing.
Hence introduction of
signboards and construction of signals at
such places would do a
lot of good to both the
public and traffic policemen.
There are certain
roads in Navi Mumbai
where vehicle drivers
tend to drive their vehicles at full speed thus
creating a risk for both
drivers and pedestrians. It is owing to such
tendencies of the vehicle drivers that so many
accidents take place on
these roads. One road is
Thane-Belapur Road,
the others are Sector 9
area of Vashi and Kopri
signal junction. The
traffic unit has suggested that speed
breakers be constructed on these roads to
control the speed of the
vehicles and thus pre-
traffic unit to be able to
control the traffic perfectly would be to install signboards at
parking and no-parking areas and also on
roads which are oneway or which allows no
vent accidents. The demand for speed breakers on these roads was
made several times by
the traffic unit but Navi
Mumbai Municipal
Corporation authorities
just didn’t seem to be in
a mood to meet this demand. It is high time
for NMMC to come up
with speed breakers on
those roads in the city
where they are urgently required.
The other things
needed to be done for
entry. The traffic unit
also asked the civic
body to repaint the zebra crossings on many
roads in the city where
the paints have faded.
All these suggestions put up by traffic
unit before the civic
body need urgent attention and also implementation to prevent loss of
lives and properties and
for traffic policemen to
be able to control the
traffic efficiently.

VASHI: Two incidents
of suicide in as many
days, both involving
young married women
have been causing consternation in police circles in the city.
In the first incident
in Vashi, Gita Babu
Savariya (32), a resident of Sector-9, Vashi
is reported to have
committed suicide by
hanging herself in her
home on Monday afternoon. Gita lived
with her husband and
three children. On
that fateful afternoon,
she had asked her children to have their siesta in the bedroom.
One they were absorbed in sleep, Gita
hanged herself with a
rope in the living
room. When the children woke up a little
later, they were
shocked to see their
Vashi police have registered a case of accidental death but find
no apparent reason for
her unfortunate step.
In the second incident on Tuesday,
Ujwala Darmaraj
Bimbe (22), a resident
of Saiwadi in Karave
village in Nerul is said
to have poured kerosene on herself and set
herself afire when she
was alone at home. She
sustained cent per cent
burns and died on the
spot. Married about a
year ago, she lived with
her husband and in
laws including a brother-in-law. Here again,
the investigators are
not able to find any apparent reason for the
drastic step. It is believed that that she
had found some (objectionable) messages in
her husband’s mobile
phone and deleted
them the previous day
and there have been
some arguments over
it between them. Police believe that that
might have prompted
her to take her own life
in a fit of exasperation.
NRI police have registered a case of accidental death and are investigating.

CR Improves It Track Sections Reliability
Issue : 273
26 March, 2015
The issue of minorities
It turns out that both our media and opposition parties are bigoted. Otherwise, how does one explain the
publicity given to the Panvel incident where a church was
attacked by miscreants? Everyone wanted us to believe
that it was sponsored by the Sangh pariwar under the
patronage of a BJP led government. They did not have
the patience to wait for the outcome of police inquiry.
Every political leader was falling over himself or herself
to condemn the attack. Each one wanted us to believe
that the minorities are not safe in this country after a
BJP led government took over. The truth is that the unholy incident was the handiwork of a gambling den operator and he had no religious motive behind it. He was
only angry that the police had acted and raided his den
on the complaint of the church authorities. Will these leaders have the courtesy to say that the incident was a purely secular one, albeit criminal in nature?
No doubt, Hindu organizations have issues with the
minorities. They are sore with the Christians because
they suspect that their missionaries are engaged in the
conversion of our deprived classes. One fails to understand whether discriminatory attitude of the orthodox
Hindu classes or the lure offered by the prosylitizers
should be blamed for the phenomenon. Anyway, the aggressive campaign launched by a section of the Hindu
leadership over ‘ghar wapsi’ or home coming looks like
an effective check on it.
Coming to the other contentious issue involving minorities pertains to cow slaughter or its ban. There is no
dispute over the ban because it is mentioned in the IVth
schedule of the constitution. The dispute is over the
slaughter of cow’s progeny, the bulls and the calves. If
beef has by-products like the hides and bones, so do the
living animals. The cow gives us milk, the urine and dung.
Both the last named have been used by the farmer as
natural manure which in turn has sustained our agriculture for millenniums. If meat production has grown into
an industry, so has milk production. Both have vast number of by-products.
Ayurveda, the ancient Indian health care system, is
squeamish about meat eating. The entire healing system
is based on herbs and closely connected with nature. For
many, it is a philosophy of life. For example, traditional
Ayurveda practitioners believe that a cow, grazing freely
in the fields, is capable of choosing the herbs needed for
curing any ailment it may be suffering from at a moment.
They go on to invest the dumb animal with a strong sixth
sense too. For example, if there is a child back home in
the keeper’s family and if it is suffering from say, fever,
the cow is able to sense it without someone telling it about
it. It will choose the right herb for its feed so that its
essence becomes available to the child when it is milked
again! So, the cow which looks like a dumb animal for the
ordinary eye, doubles up a doctor here! That is why Hindus worship it.
Coming to the question of old cows and bulls, they are
as much of a burden as our parents are in their old age!
What do we do with the latter?
None of the arguments should hide the fact that we
have grossly over-exploited the nature. The rate at which
our forests are being destroyed is matched only by our
growing population! Neither the BJP government nor the
Sangh pariwar seems to have any solution to it. Instead,
the propagation of some Sangh outfits that every Hindu
woman should bear at least five children looks retrograde. We can’t base everything on political calculations.

deep within your psyche. Relationships
and people will hold centrestage; there
will be profound social interaction of feelings and not just casual meetings. You
look for answers but they are elusive,
and you may need to go by your gut, instincts and feelings. This is an emotionally explosive phase and this stress may
also make you succumb, healthwise.
There will be flurry of relationships;
you will be reaching out to all corners.
There will be indiscretion and errors but
that is the mood you are in. Although
money issues play at the back of your
mind, you will be drawn to nothing particular but to people as a whole. Your
affections are diluted and you could get
much into a mess. You also look at various money making opportunities but it
may be getting you nowhere, right now.
This is not the right time for it, says the
Lord Almighty. This is a phase where
you do a lot but yet you feel you’re achieving and doing nothing. You are easily
distracted and all your efforts lead to

never be broke. Lord Almighty will ensure that, so don’t worry.
You will fuse work with pleasure and
there is no letting up. You will tap all
avenues and are all geared up for fun
and work, if you can balance that out
somehow. You will find time for hobbies,
other interests, sport and leisure activities. You will also accompany the family
on happy outings. It is an enjoyable time.
You love the planning and preparation,
and the hope of gains and advancement
in whatever you do, you think big and
look at the larger picture of life, you will
want more and move towards it. Nothing and no one will be able to satisfy you
now, as your appetite is giant size.
You set a scorching pace of work this
week. There is a successful completion
of projects and a flurry of activities of
all levels. You are in total communication mode, and are on the go with intensity and purpose. You are also very emotional, at this juncture and work a lot
with your heart which is not a good
thing, if I may add, you see infinite possibilities at whatever you aim to do and
your attitude undergoes a transformation. But make sure you use your head
in decision making. You are less rigid
now, but once emotions cloud your judgement there will be mistakes. You can be
very subjective in your thought processes. Keep your eyes open to guard against,
both failure and regret. The Lord Almighty guards you through the tough
time ahead.
You will get more philosophical. Several personal issues will come to the fore.
You are called upon to solve family matters, which can get tricky. You may be
mired in quicksand and don’t know how
to proceed; sometimes it can be a loselose situation in life and this may well
be how it is for you. If you are not careful right now. You look within four answers, re-examine options, and search

MJP staff quarters in dilapidated condition, poses a threat to lives of residents
By Umesh Parida
Maharashtra Jeevan
Pradhikaran (MJP)
staff quarters in New
Panvel have become a
threat to the lives of the
employees and their
family members. The
age old staff quarters
have not been regularly repaired. Further,
slab falling cases have
been reported in the
said quarters.
The MJP has provided the staff quarters
in PL-5/44 building.
There are 12 flats in the
said building wherein
the residents have to
stay. However, nine
families are staying in
the 12 flats. Towards
rent and service tax
approximately Rs5000
per month is being deducted from the salaries of the concerned
staff members who are
occupying these flats.
These staff quarters
have not been maintained properly. As the
said flats have not been

Letters to the Editor....
New letter boxes needed
There is only one post office in the entire node of Airoli at
sector-17. There are very few letter boxes in the node. Many
are not in working condition. One such letter box is at a prime
location in sector-7. The letter box is completely corroded. No
one uses this letter box. Most of the residents of Airoli and
neighbourhood go to the post office to post their letters. On some days like Sundays,
the letter box at the post office becomes full. When it becomes full, any miscreant
can put his hand to remove the letters from the box. The postal authorities should
provide more letter boxes at prime locations in the node so that everyone need not
come to the post office just for posting letters. Those boxes should also be maintained
properly. They should replace the box at sector-7 with a new one. They should also
provide another box at the post office.
- Ravichandran, Airoli
India should display Gut Feeling
It may appear a perfect time to beat the Australians in their homeland in the
semi final of the World Cup. The gut feeling is good and it is coming from our main
hope Virat Kohli. But complacency should not catch up with us during the crucial
time of the World’s premiere tournament. Overconfidence shown by the team from
the sub continent and the team from down under may work against them in the
crucial stages of the game as we witnessed in the other semi-final match.
Australians think that they are favourites with 17 wins as against 4 by Team
India at Sydney Cricket Ground. And again in the World cup meetings, Australians
had upper hand winning 7 seven out of the 10 outings. But that and all will not
matter much in a do or die situations. The dice may roll on either side and depends
whether the side batting first shows great resolve to make a sufficient total to run
the other side out of the match.
Both the teams are led by clever and experienced captains and it appears that
Australians have slight edge. War of Words, Verbal abuse or sledging is not going to
make any difference. But the likes of Virat Kohli and David Warner should mend
their ways and play with the spirit of the game as our own Sachin Tendulkar is the
brand ambassador of the World cup 2015.

Open Letter to Sanjay Dhaygude, Dy.RTO
This letter is from a citizen of
Navi Mumbai, regarding the problem of common man,
the so called passenger of Auto rickshaw
in Navi Mumbai.
People are suffering in this twin city.
It needs your attention and prompt action. People suffer
from nuisance of Auto
rickshaw drivers either in the form of extra, excess and exorbitant charge, rude
behavior or refusal to
ply. Most of the time,
they are not ready to
go from one sector to
another without extra charges as if you are travelling
from one city to another. Recent increase in fare too has not satisfied
Most Newspapers carry news re-
garding these menace as can be seen
in Vashi Times, The Twin City
Times, Daily News Band and others. You are waiting
for complaint to come
to you to address the
issue. Can you not
take proactive step in
the interest of public,
get a survey conducted by plain clothes policemen to find and
understand the crux
of the problem. We
know that you do not
travel by auto but I
request you to address this issue to
help public who are
really suffering.
I hope your quick
action and appropriate decision will help public at large.
Thanking you in anticipation,
Yours faithfully,
Vinay Kumar Singh, (Email
