As already reported, NMMC has established a separate website: h t t p : / / n m m c election.org where every possible detail about the elections has been made available. One can get details like the wards, reservations, voting booths etc from the site which is being updated on a daily basis.

The body was found lying on the road with his hands tied tightly with a wire rope. That has prompted people to conclude that it was not a case of accident; the man must have been thrown out of a running vehicle, they felt. Many motorists stopped their vehicles on seeing the body on the road. At that time, the victim was still breathing. So, some kind hearted persons among them put the man on an auto rikshaw and took him to NMMC hospital at Vashi. The man breathed his last while being under treatment.

Members of Matang Samaj expect 4 to 5 seats Switch allegiance from Sena to NCP AIROLI: Members of Matang Samaj have demanded that they be allotted 4 or 5 seats by Nationalist Congress Party for the coming civic elections. The members under the leadership of Uma- kant Namwad were in alliance with Shiv Sena all these year. “Since the Sena has not done anything for the community, we have decided to join hands with NCP this time,” he announced. Hundreds of samaj members officially joined NCP in the presence of MLA Sandeep Naik on 23 March, 2015. “We expect 4 or 5 seats to be allotted to us by NCP,” said Namwad. Man arrested for masquerading as a CIDCO officer and cheating people by promising flats By Vikram Gaikwad KHARGHAR: A conman impersonating as CIDCO’s Marketing Officer duped ten people of Rs 30 lakhs by luring them into buying flats in the company’s so-called housing project in sector 25 of Kharghar. The conman, Keshav Dayanand Shirsagar hails from Kolhapur and is into farming business. He however had been living in Kharghar past one year, pretending to be a CIDCO employee and had created his image as a Marketing officer. During this time, he had started selling flats of CIDCO’s supposedly housing project “Vastuvihar” and had duped Mohammad Kamarali Akbar into buying a flat by paying a booking amount of Rs 3 lakhs. Similarly, he cheated nine more people in Kharghar neighborhood into parting with Rs 3 lakhs each and gave them fake documents in return. When the home buyers visited CIDCO office for verification, they were informed about the documents being false. Realizing they had been cheated, all the victims lodged a complaint against Shirsagar with Kharghar Police. Accordingly, the investigation led police to Shirsagar’s native place in Kolhapur where he was apprehended. The police suspect him to have been involved in more similar crimes. CMYK registered a case of accidental death. They too however feel that it may not be a case of accident but one of murder. Efforts have been started to establish the identity of the victim. 3 CHANGE OF NAME I have changed my name from DATTARAY VITTHAL GHANGLE to DATTA VITTHAL GHANGALE as per affidavit dated 25th March 2015. CMYK Run All Night Run All Night is a 2015 American action thriller film written by Brad Ingelsby and directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. The film stars Liam Neeson, Joel Kinnaman, Common, and Ed Harris. Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon (Liam Neeson), once known as “The Gravedigger,” has seen better days. Longtime best friend of mob boss Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris), Jimmy, now 55, is haunted by the sins of his past — as well as a dogged police detective (Vincent D’Onofrio) who’s been one step behind Jimmy for 30 years. Lately, it seems Jimmy’s only solace can be found at the bottom of a whiskey glass. But when Jimmy’s estranged son, Mike (Joel Kinnaman), becomes a target, Jimmy must make a choice between the crime family he chose and the real family he abandoned long ago. With Mike on the run, Jimmy’s only penance for his past mistakes may be to keep his son from the same fate Jimmy is certain he’ll face himself. Now, with nowhere safe to turn, Jimmy just has one night to figure out exactly where his loyalties lie and to see if he can finally make things right. Dragon Blade Dragon Blade is a 2015 historical action film written and directed by Daniel Lee and starring Jackie Chan. In the film, Chan plays Huo An, the commander of the Protection Squad of the Western Regions during the Han Dynasty. Dragon Blade was released in IMAX 3D on 19 February 2015, the first day Chinese New Year holiday period. In a corny prologue set in 2015, two archaeologists (Vanness Wu, Karena Lam) discover the lost city of Regum, built by Romans during a fabled expedition to China. We are then transported back to 48 B.C., when China was under the reign of Emperor Xuan of the Han Dynasty, with 36 tribal nations vying for dominance at the country’s northwestern border. Huo An, a Hun orphaned during a skirmish, was adopted and raised by Han Chinese general Huo Qubing (William Feng Shaofeng), who taught him ideals of racial harmony; now (played by Chan), he tries with difficulty to maintain order as captain of the Silk Road Protection Squad. While arbitrating a dispute, he inadvertently lifts the veil of warrior Cold Moon (Lin Peng), who now considers herself his betrothed by folk law. That Huo is already married to Xiuqing (Mika Wang), a gentle Uyghur teacher of Chinese, is less of an issue than his being framed for smuggling, which leads to him being exiled to Wild Goose Gate to help repair a fort city. Upon his arrival, he’s besieged by a renegade Roman legion under Gen. Lucius (Cusack), who has fled the capital with a blind boy, Publius (Joey Jozef). An unexpected sandstorm brings the road-weary soldiers under Huo’s wing. In return for his hospitality, they help reconstruct the city in 15 days. However, Publius’ brother, the Consul Tiberius (Brody), is marching toward them with an 100,000-strong army. Yahaan Sabki Lagi Hai Yahaan Sabki Lagi Hai is a multi-lingual film. It is an allegory on the journey of life, especially at times when one feels victimized or shortchanged, set in the milieu of Indian-English-speaking urban youth. It is considered to be a multi-lingual film and an allegory on journey of life. This is especially during times, when a person tends to feel shortchanged or victimized. The movie is set in the background of the Indian-English speaking youth in the urban areas. The movie looks at a way that people are known to live casually in the class system that is built upon blatant economy and social disparities, the very way that people are eager to get fooled by the belief systems. The same way that one validates their tastes and is very protective of it. By exploring counter point for each point, this movie is said to subtly question not just the material value system, but the emotional value system also. The movie is rather comedy at heart, however, also has melancholic after taste that borders on philosophical, thereby providing thought in regards to the present conditions and times. The film has Bharat as Varun Thakur, Kesang - Eden Shyodhi and Chandu - Heerok Das. Barkhaa Barkhaa is a Bollywood Romantic film, directed by Shadaab Mirza and produced by Shabana Hashmi. It stars Sara Loren in lead titular role. The film also stars Taaha Shah, Shweta Pandit, Priyanshu Chatterjee and Puneet Issar in prominent roles. The film was extensively shot in CMYK Himachal Pradesh, India. Marketing of the film was done by Hash Entertainment and is distributed under the banner of Zahara Productions. The film has songs like Naughty No.1 sung by Neha Kakkar and Amjad Khan and Tu Itni Khoobsurat Hai by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The movie Barkhaa is a romantic drama that is based on a small town character Barkha that is played by Sara Loren. Barkha is supposed to be very beautiful and hot. Barkhaa is representing the two characters in this movie. One is small town’s simple women and other is hot and sizzling beauty of the Mumbai. This is the story about how a girl falls in love with someone and how suddenly some problems arise. The second part of the movie is the story of a bold girl that is looking very different from the simple image. The movie is an intense unconditional sensitive love story between two radically opposite people. It is an intense love story between two completely different people. The plot of the film is based on a real life incident. The film introduces Sara and Taaha and how a series of events bring them closer. But destiny had some different plans for them and a sudden twist in their life drift them apart. Barkhaa is a tale of a simple girl who is lost in the glamour world in search of true love. The movie is majorly shot in beautiful locations of Himachal Pradesh and Mumbai. The Gunman The Gunman is a 2015 American action thriller film directed by Pierre Morel and written by Don Macpherson, Pete Travis and Sean Penn, based on the novel The Prone Gunman, by Jean-Patrick Manchette. It stars Penn, with Idris Elba, Ray Winstone, Mark Rylance, and Javier Bardem appearing in supporting roles. The film has an interesting plot. An exsoldier who carried out an assassination in the Democratic Republic of Congo finds his past catching up with him eight years later. The film has Sean Penn working in Congo for a mining company. He has a few overt, benign functions, but we get the feeling that more is going on, and this is soon confirmed when he is assigned to Cont. on pg. 5 assassinate a politician. It makes CMYK [email protected] 27 March, 2015 www.newsband.in Title hope gone The main problems with Indian Team and the Indian fans is that we underestimate the opposition. Now out of 11 World Cup matches we could win only 3 games which shows our poor track record against Aussies. Again at Sydney we could win only 4 matches and lost 17 games altogether. In the last Tri-series we could not open our account down under. How can we expect a miracle from a team lacking a genuine all rounder? During the seven matches we could not experiment and promote the late order batsmen as pinch hitter or a replace the ever failing Kohli in key games. Now the writing is on the wall. When we play at home and that include World cup we are the tigers and finish up paper tiger in overseas conditions. Fortunately for us we got Bangladesh in the Semi-final and that full toss considered as a no ball changed the fortunes in favour of India. Instead of depending on toss, dubious decisions and backdoor entry we should be a team with a purpose and play for a win at higher level and that too in overseas conditions. We talk very high about finishers but all Movie world.. Cont. from pg. 4 By C K Subramaniam the poor gunman feels really guilty about his crime. Killing that politician pretty much wrecked his life. It separated him from his fiancee and from his own sense of himself. He already wishes he could take it all back — even before people come out of the woodwork, eight years later, looking to murder him. Once Jim (Penn) arrives at the disconcerting realization that people want him dead, his mission is to find out who is behind it while fending off attacks from scores of hired assassins. the finishers finished the game with 19 balls left and 95 runs loss in the end. hundreds but against good teams he is a sitting duck. But for the economical Dhoni’s captaincy needs to be changed for the one day format also as his dependence on Ravindra Jadeja appears rather ridiculous. He can amass runs at Ranji level with 3 double bowling of Ashwin we would have lost the match by over 150 runs. Seven successive wins went waste. Had we lost one game by changing the team by bringing Akshar Patel, we would have had better option against Australia. Overall it was a pitiable performance and once Australia won the toss and put up 327 the match was as good as over. Australia will play fellow co-hosts New Zealand in Sunday’s World Cup final in Melbourne after they beat defending champions India by 95 runs at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday. Steven Smith’s 105 and his second-wicket stand of 182 with opener Aaron Finch was the cornerstone of Australia’s imposing 328 for seven, made after skipper Michael Clarke won the toss. But India - unbeaten in their run to the semi-finals - fought back with paceman Umesh Yadav taking 5 four for 72 before Mitchell Johnson smashed 27 not out off nine balls. India made a bold start to their stiff chase but lost two quick wickets after opener Shikhar Dhawan holed out for 45. Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the India captain, rallied his side with a run-a-ball 65 until he was run out by Glenn Maxwell’s direct hit with only one stump to aim at. India was eventually dismissed for 233. New Zealand and Australia have already met at this World Cup, with New Zealand winning by just one wicket in a pool-phase thriller at Auckland’s Eden Park last month. As far as Team India is concerned we missed the world cup to come to our door step for the second time. Following ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 India Vs Australia 2nd Semi-Finals In City India Bows Out… The Best of Me The Best of Me is an American romantic drama film directed by Michael Hoffman and written by Will Fetters and J. Mills Goodloe, based on Nicholas Sparks’ 2011 novel of the same name. The film stars James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan with Luke Bracey and Liana Liberato. The film has an interesting story. Former high school sweethearts Dawson and Amanda find themselves reunited after 20 years apart, when they return to their small town for the funeral of a beloved friend. Their bittersweet reunion reignites the love they’ve never forgotten, but soon they discover the forces that drove them apart twenty years ago live on, posing even more serious threats today. Spanning decades, this epic love story captures the enduring power of our first true love, and the wrenching choices we face when confronted with elusive second chances.

CMYK 6 [email protected] 27 March, 2015 www.newsband.in Issue : 274 Foundation ceremony of water tank held in Kolkhe 27 March, 2015 Gender bias displayed in Parliament itself Janata Dal (United) chief Sharad Yadav made a comment in Parliament on dark-skinned South Indian women, saying that they are ‘as beautiful as their bodies’ and adding that they ‘know dance’. The question that arises is why during a debate on the Insurance Bill the member would find it necessary to drag in a comment about women at all. There was also a time when Sharad Yadav responded to Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani’s criticism with the highly offensive comment, “I know what you are.” Fresh are the memories of Mr. Mulayam Singh’s comment “Handing death sentence for rape is not fair, boys make mistakes. When their friendship ends, the girl complains she has been raped.” Most of the politicians who make these kinds of comments are from most backward states of India. In those states, governments are just for decoration. It is their illiteracy that makes them pass these comments and over a period they forget respecting fellow people. It’s not just the work place or the parliament that has been used to denigrate women. The course begins right at the home. Women are treated as objects rather than a human being with an independent view. Independent women are still a taboo in Indian society. Tolerance and compromise are synonyms to women and the parochial society wants them to be like this forever so that their male chauvinist attitude is not hampered. How is that when an 11th standard student posts opinions on a minister known to have ties with criminals is sent to jail without being given a chance to justify his stance while so called leaders of our country go about make racial and gender based insults are given sufficient time to rethink n change statements? This is hypocrisy at its height. This is equivalent to saying that it’s okay for ministers to say anything but God forbid if a citizen utters a word of truth, you shall be punished. Its letting ministers get away with stuff like this that keeps our country socially backward. Do they not realize that their words are heard by a large audience? Women continue to get a raw deal in parliament, police stations and court rooms, in workplaces and homes. Besides laws that address women’s safety, what is urgently needed is a code of conduct or set of rules that will apply to public officials and politicians, which can ensure that gender-biased comments and jokes are weeded out of the public discourse. Quite a number of men, including those in responsible positions, do not realise that empowered women are assets to the family, the society and the nation The empowerment of women is not about their liberty and development alone it is about their ability to convert themselves into productive human resource, so that investment on their education and training and creation of job and business opportunities to them would benefit their families and the nation. What is the use of keeping nearly half the population ignorant, illiterate, unemployed and unproductive. It is high time we supported them and encouraged them in their efforts to contribute to family welfare and national income. To end gender bias we need to have stringent measures against wide spread gender selection tests and female infanticide. Then to empower girl child there needs to be free education for them till college level. People who take dowry should be penalised. Government needs to do away caste and religion based quotas. A quota for women in jobs and colleges will lift them from the abysmal conditions. CMYK By Umesh Parida PANVEL: Keeping in mind the demand for water tank in the rural areas, a foundation stone laying ceremony was held in Kolkhe village on Sunday. A foundation stone was laid. The politicians gathered here spoke about the necessity to provide modern facilities and infrastructures to people in the city due to rising population and rapid scale development around CIDCO developed nodes owing to which there is a growing demand for the same. The politicians also called upon the people to become member of the Bharatiya Janata Party as called by the PM for development of village areas also. This membership will connect the people with the central government, they said. CIDCO goes... show papers about their ownership. But none was able to produce any. Still some people came forward to offer physical resistance and they were promptly beaten back by the police. By the end of the day, eight large buildings had been demolished, says the report. Nine poclains, seven JCBs, trucks and large number of labourers were deployed in the day long operation. A posse of 200 policemen provided security to the squad members. “There are still more buildings falling under this category. The squad will tackle them tomorrow,” said Yogesh Mhase, who is heading the operations. Cont. from pg. 1 quiries showed that they had been construction by the members of the land mafia on ‘fifty fifty’ basis with the local villagers. The residences and commercial galas had been constructed and sold away. The activities were reportedly being patronized by some local political leaders. Notwithstanding this background, CIDCO’s demolition squad descended on the place and got down to work. Expectedly, the local residents came forward to resist. Sr PI P N Patil, who was directing the cops providing protection to the squad asked them to ‘Give Way... Cont. from pg. 1 his status/ religion/ gender/caste.

The watchman, Daji Jadhav was filling bullets into his rifle, which caused the gun to accidently, go off and fire a shell. Fortunately, no one was injured during misfire. Accordingly, CBD police were summoned at once, who have registered the case and are investigating it. Letters to the Editor.... Change the route of Thane-Panvel buses There are a large number of commuters travelling between Thane and Airoli node for various works. There is only one NMMT bus route between Thane and Airoli node. The frequency of the buses is poor. The frequency of Thane-Panvel trains is also not enough to cater to a large population. They are run once in an hour. Also, there are no direct buses from Airoli node to Panvel. One has to go to Thane-Belapur road (TB road) to board ST buses coming from Thane and going to Panvel. There are many Thane-Panvel ST buses. Their frequency is good. All the buses go directly along TB road. I feel 50% of the Thane-Panvel buses can take the route of Kalva, Vitawa and then can be diverted via Patni computers, Airoli sec-20, sec19, sec-17, Diva village circle, sec-5, then TB road. The rest of the route can be same. This route is bound to be a success as it will cover many residential areas. It will give good profits to ST and it will also benefit commuters from Airoli node, Thane and surrounding areas. - S. Ravichandran, Airoli Train housing societies in Rain Water Harvesting Rain Harvesting should be made compulsory in all the Housing Societies. These societies must be given completion certificate of the buildings only when there is provision for such an arrangement. Instead of wasting rain water it should be stored and preserved for future use. Not all the rain that falls can actually be collected. Efficiency is usually presumed to be more than 80% depending on system design and capacity. Therefore, a 1200 square foot roof will collect 1100 gallons of water on a day with two inches of rainfall. Using this formula and region’s average rainfall numbers combined with an estimated water need, you should be able to calculate the approximate size of your tank or the so called Barrel System. This takes care of the requirement. Instead of wasting space at focal points in the building complex, a large tank can be made from materials such as cement or metal to store rain water. The height of this mammoth tank could be raised to a minimum of 20 feet, so as to allow for natural gravitational force and also allow the racing to happen undisturbed as continuous process. Stitch in time saves nine is really true. If we store rain water during monsoon season, the same can be used during acute shortage of water. Rain water harvesting is the need of the hour. There is no doubt about it. - C. K.

CMYK By Dinesh Kamath NAVI MUMBAI: Eight nodes - Digha, Airoli, Ghansoli, Koparkhairane, Vashi, Turbhe, Nerul and CBD - this time have 111 wards for the forthcoming municipal elections. This means there will be 22 seats more than the last Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation election. The number of voters also has increased this time. There will be around 8 lakhs voters this time which means an increase of around 2 lakhs voters as compared to last NMMC elections. Ghansoli is having the most number of additional voters owing to the fact that this time it has 14 constituencies as compared to six last time and also because of the rapid growth in the population here during the last few months. This growth in population is what compelled NMMC to convert six wards into 14. Ghansoli beats even Vashi now when it comes to number of wards since Vashi has only 11 wards. Those contesting the forthcoming NMMC elections are coming up with new methods of wooing the voters. They are making use of the latest technological developments. They have made themselves very conversant with social networking platforms like Facebook and Whatsapp. In addition they are using new methods like using tollfree numbers, live videos and interactive mobile-based applications. They are still researching to find out if there are any more technology available to exploit for the polls. They are not ignoring the old methods like distribut- tions. Some even distributed utensils to the voters of his ward. Another got a road immediately constructed to appease the voters who had been demanding a road since a very long time. Still another candidate distributed diaries. There is still another candidate who is distributing free Wi-Fi to thousands of people in his ward. Many big ing of pamphlets or sharing of posts on social networking sites. The voters’ responses on these sites are spontaneous and hence the candidates can get instantly the idea about how popular he is with the voters. Setting up a toll-free numbers enables the voters to convey their response free of cost without using a phone. The candidates use the mobile application to make voters aware about details of their development works. These aspiring candidates are prepared to go to any extent to keep increasing their chances of winning the elec- promises are being made to the voters. They are promised anything they want – like free internet connection, installation of a tower etc. Some candidates have come up with new party offices and voters are allowed to meet them any time during day or night. Thus the residents of the city are witnessing the positive changes in behaviours of the candidates as the date of NMMC elections draws closer and closer. These residents are only hoping that these candidates will maintain this kind of attitude even after winning the elections.
