The Supreme Court Monday declined early hearing of petitions in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice S K Kaul said it had already listed the appeals before the appropriate bench in January.”We have already passed the order. The appeals are coming up in January. Permission declined,” the bench said while rejecting the request of early hearing of lawyer Barun Kumar Sinha, appearing for the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha.

The top court had earlier fixed the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case for the first week of January before an “appropriate bench”, which will decide the schedule of hearing.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta and senior advocate CS Vaidyanathan, appearing for the UP government and deity Ramlala respectively, had sought early listing of the appeals in the case after referring to their long pendency.

Earlier, a three-judge bench, by a 2:1 majority, refused to refer to a five-judge constitution bench the issue of reconsideration of the observations in its 1994 judgement of the Allahabad High Court that a mosque was not integral to Islam. The matter had arisen during the hearing of the Ayodhya land dispute.

  1. The apex court bench headed by the then Chief Justice Dipak Misra had said that the civil suit has to be decided on the basis of evidence.It had also said that the previous verdict has no relevance to this issue. As many as 14 appeals have been filed against the high court judgement, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77 acre land be partitioned equally among three parties — the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.

NCR transport corporation gives nod for Regional Rapid Transit System

Published

on

The National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) Board has approved the DPR (Detailed Project Report) of Delhi-Gurugram-SNB (Shahjahanpur-Neemrana-Behror Urban Complex) Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor, boosting connectivity between these cities. The go-ahead has prioritised the implementation of one of the three RRTS- Delhi-Gurugram-Alwar, to be implemented in three stages.
According to NCRTC officials, in the first stage, the Delhi – Gurugram – Rewari – SNB Urban Complex will be constructed. In stage II, it will be extended from SNB Urban Complex to Sotanala while in Stage III, SNB Urban Complex to Alwar will be constructed. The 106 km long, Delhi-Gurugram-SNB corridor will be elevated for about 71 km (11 stations), the remaining 35 km (five stations) will be constructed underground, mostly in Delhi and Gurugram. This corridor will converge with other RRTS corridors in Sarai Kale Khan and will be interoperable, facilitating commuters’ movement from one corridor to another without the hassle of changing trains.
Similarly, with an intent to incentivise the use of Public Transport, Delhi-Gurugram-SNB corridor will be seamlessly integrated with other modes of transport in NCR. RRTS trains with design speed of 180kmph, operation speed of 160kmph and average speed of 100kmph will be available at a frequency of every 5-10 minutes. “The infrastructure is being designed for up to 9 coaches train. These trains will be air-conditioned with transverse seating and overhead luggage space for commuter comfort. There would be priority seating arrangements for people with special needs, an exclusive coach for women travelers and a business class coach in every train to encourage people to leave their cars for public transport,” the official said.
This RRTS smart line will pass through urban and industrial areas of Haryana and connect Delhi airport with the RRTS network, increasing the overall productivity of NCR. The corridor will strengthen the regional transport infrastructure by providing a fast, safe, comfortable and reliable mobility option to the residents of Delhi, Gurugram, Rewari, Manesar, Daruheda, Bawal and nearby areas. “The fast commuting connecting Delhi to nearby regions will be immensely beneficial in decongesting Delhi and its roads, providing citizens the choice to live and work in different regional nodes to lead a better quality of life,”the official further said.
Once constructed, the corridor is expected to bring down the travel time between SKK-SNB in less than 70 minutes (106 km). The daily ridership on this corridor is estimated to be 8.5 lakh in 2025.

Modi attends Maldives Prez Solih’s swearing-in ceremony as island shifts towards India from China

Published

on

Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived here on Saturday to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Maldives President-elect Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, who surprisingly defeated strongman Abdulla Yameen in September.

This is Modi’s first visit to the Maldives as prime minister. The last visit by an Indian Prime Minister to the Indian Ocean island nation was by Manmohan Singh in 2011.

“I will convey to the new Maldivian Government of Mr Solih the desire of the Indian Government to work closely for realisation of their developmental priorities, especially in areas of infrastructure, health care, connectivity & human resource development,” Modi said in a series of tweets ahead of the visit.

He said the recent elections in the Maldives represent the collective aspirations of the people for democracy, rule of law and a prosperous future.

“We in India strongly desire to see a stable, democratic, prosperous and peaceful Republic of Maldives,” the prime minister said.

Modi also congratulated Solih on his victory in the recent elections and wished him “the very best for his tenure”.

“India and the Maldives share a strong partnership rooted in history, strong bonds between our peoples, and their shared aspiration for peace and prosperity. My Government’s vision of inclusive development Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas’ extends to all our neighbours too,” he said.

Modi also said he will convey to Solih his wish to work with the new Maldives government in different areas to boost bilateral ties.

Solih, the opposition Maldivian Democratic Party’s candidate who surprisingly emerged victorious over incumbent president Yameen in the election held on September 23, had extended the invitation during a phone call by Modi.

The Maldives is the only South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation SAARC country that Modi has not visited. His visit to the Maldives, a strategically vital island and a popular tourist destination, was cancelled in March 2015 due to the volatile political situation then.

India-Maldives ties came under strain under Yameen who was perceived to be close to China. Some decisions by Yameen including imposition of restrictions on work visas for Indians and signing of a new Free Trade Agreement with Beijing also did not go down well with New Delhi.

Relations between India and the Maldives deteriorated further after Yameen imposed emergency on February 5 this year. India had criticised his decision and asked his government to restore the credibility of the electoral and political process by releasing political prisoners. The emergency lasted for 45 days.

Rohit, Jadeja star as India rout West Indies in 5th ODI, win series 3-1 PTI |

Published

A ruthless India completed a nine-wicket demolition of the West Indies in the fifth and final ODI in Thiruvananthapuram on Thursday for their sixth successive series win at home.

Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja took four wickets to help India bundle out the West Indies for 104 in just 31.5 overs. Pacers Khaleel Ahmed and Jasprit Bumrah chipped in with two wickets each.

The home team took just 14.5 overs to reach the paltry target, courtesy an unbeaten 99-run stand between Rohit Sharma (62 off 54) and captain Virat Kohli (33 off 29), following another low score from Shikhar Dhawan.

It was a complete surrender from the West Indies, who let themselves down after competing hard in the first three ODIs. The previous game at Mumbai too was dominated by the hosts before they romped to a 3-1 series win. India last a lost a series at home in 2015, when they went down 2-3 against South Africa.

The hosts wasted in no time completing the 105-run target after the bowlers laid the foundation of a massive victory. Rohit continued his fine form, notching up a half-century, in the process going past the 1,000-run mark for the calendar year 2018 and also hitting his 200th six in ODIs.

The India vice-captain had a lucky escape when he was caught behind by Shai Hope off Oshane Thomas’ bowling on 18. He made most of that reprieve as he hit five boundaries and struck five imperious sixes. Kohli too was solid at the other end and his innings comprised six fours.

Dhawan’s soft dismissal would probably be one of the lows for India as he chopped on a delivery from Thomas, who worked up good pace but was inconsistent with his line and length.

Earlier, the West Indies were in trouble right from the start after skipper Jason Holder chose to bat. Pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar had Kieran Powell caught behind by M S Dhoni for a duck off the fourth ball, giving India their first wicket.

Shai Hope, who has been one of the best West Indies batsmen on tour alongside Shimron Hetmyer, was castled by Bumrah off a beauty in the second over to leave the team at 2 for 2. The experienced Marlon Samuels, from whom a lot was expected, led a brief revival, hitting some crisp boundaries and the only six of the innings.

The Indian domination could be gauged from the fact that the first boundary came in the sixth over when Rovman Powell lofted one from Bumrah over the infield. Samuels’ resistance ended in the 12th over when he fell to a soft dismissal of Jadeja for 24, spooning a catch to skipper Virat Kohli.

As has often been the case in the series, Holder showed patience and skill to resist the rampant Indian bowlers but his dismissal hastened the end. The lanky Holder was taken by Kedar Jadhav, running in from the deep when he tried to go ariel against Khaleel Ahmed. He was the top-scorer with 25. The spinners took over and polished off the tail.

on

Well! It is the dream of every one of us to purchase a dream house once in a lifetime however, in today’s era the price of the properties are skyrocketing and hence, people have problems in purchasing the house. In order to facilitate people purchase a house, the banks and financial companies under both public and private sectors lend loan to the borrower.

With plethora of options available to borrow a home loan, the normal person is tremendously confused. Thus, in order to clarify all your confusions, herein, we bring up a simple guide to help you borrow a home loan and fulfill your dream of having a luxurious house ahead.

  1. File your ITR regularly. Well! Filing your Income Tax Return helps you build up your CIBIL Score. A CIBIL Score of 750 is desirable in the case, you want a loan. If your score is low, many banks and financial companies avoid giving you a loan or they might prefer to give you a loan at a higher interest rate.
  2. You must research for various options available which can provide you a loan with effective interest rates. Apart from this, it is also essential to gather information about the postulates of loan agreement and their foreclosure norms.
  3. Understand the fundamentals of interest rate. Notably, there are two kinds of interest rates: floating interest rate and fixed interest rate. Floating interest rate depends upon the stock market whereas the fixed interest rate remains same till the foreclosure duration whether it is 15 years or 20 years.
  4. Comparison of the involved processing fees is essential. Yes, it is quite necessary to know the details regarding the processing fees, file charges etc involved while the loan is being processed. It is variable for different banks and financial companies.
  5. Check your affordability criterion. Before finalizing your loan, it is necessary for you to counter-check your own affordability criterion as your bank/financial company does. Well! Practically it is extremely difficult to repay the loan in the case, you can’t afford it. Thus, decisions should be made wisely.
  6. Insure your property. Insurance of your property which is supposed to be mortgaged for a home loan, ensures the option of repayment in the case you won’t be able to do the same because of certain adverse circumstances. Hence, insuring your property is an intelligent idea.
  7. Don’t depend on your loan agent. All the loan agents tend to sell the loan for the bank/financial company that pays an effective incentive to them. Notably, if the cost of commission is high, your processing fees and interest rate is also comparatively higher. Thus, you must not depend upon the loan agents and try at government banks for loans.
  8. Ensure the legality of your property. Yes, you must check all the legal papers of the property which you are planning to buy. After all, if you are leaving no stone unturned to purchase your dream house, your property should not be illegal or else, you will be at loss and no bank would prefer giving loan for a property with illegal issues.
  9. Make appropriate down payments. Along with the legal documents of the token money and down payments, you must try to make maximum down payment. In this manner, you will be able to timely foreclose your loan, thereby, reducing the interest on your loan amount.
  10. Spend conservatively to foreclose your loan before time. This ensures reduction in your compound interest thus, saving your money a great deal. It is also found that foreclosure norms are now relaxed and the borrowers don’t require paying extra if they wish to foreclose their loan before time.

Hope this is an interesting and informative article. Well! Now if you are planning to purchase your dream house, you can apply for a home loan to combat the high expenditure involved thereby, maintaining your budget.

Ten Reasons Stating the Importance of Breakfast

Published

on

The twelve-lettered word ‘breakfast’ plays a significant role in human life. The literal meaning of this word implies the act of breaking the fast of approximately 8-12 hours from night to morning during which we tend to sleep. Eating a healthy breakfast before beginning the day is extremely necessary for a healthy life. However, in the busy life of today’s world, we tend to skip the breakfast thus, inviting numerous health issues in our lives. Even, during the busy schedule when we tend to get late, we must grab a healthy chunk of food to make our day active. In the case, time does not permits the idea of sitting and taking the wholesome breakfast calmly, one can switch over to quick breakfast ideas like, fruits, shakes, juices, sandwiches, sprouts, and many more.

Thus, herein, we bring to you few important reasons stating the significance of breakfast in our lives.

  • Breakfast is the Energizing Fuel

Breakfast provides enough energy to keep going throughout the day. It is said that the healthy breakfast provides requisite amount of nutrients to keep you energize for hours.

  • Breakfast Prevents Starvation

Yes, you found right. After the sleep of 8-12 hours, the morning is filled with crankiness because the dinner taken the previous day is already digested and the body requires some calories to start the day. In case the breakfast is missed, then, we tend to feel hungry till the lunch time.

  • Breakfast Sets A Routine

Ideally, it is considered appropriate to take the breakfast after an hour of waking up. This generous act in the morning not only helps the stomach to calm but also sets a routine for a complete day. Because of a proper meal in the morning, the person feels the necessity to take lunch, supper and dinner on time.

  • Breakfast Promotes the Metabolism of Body

Breakfast activates the digestive enzymes which digest our food timely. Thus, the carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and lipids taken in by us are broken down into smaller molecules of energy thus, balancing our metabolic rate and helping us actively focus on the activities of our day.

  • Breakfast Prevents Acidity

Due to the hectic schedule and busy lifestyle, the people tend to develop acidity due to the dis-balance in the concentration of the hydrochloric acid of the stomach. The stomach acid causes the pH of body to rise thereby, causing acidity in the body. Acidity is harmful as it gives a puking sensation and can even accumulate in brain causing major problems.

  • Breakfast Prevents Obesity

Obesity does not only hamper our physique but also disrupts our daily activities by reducing our stamina. Thus, obesity is considered as a root cause of most of the health disorders like, hypertension, diabetes and many more. It is found that people who tend to skip the breakfast in order to cut back some calories actually end up accumulating unnecessary fat on their body.

  • Breakfast Avoids Diseases

Yes, proper breakfast everyday along with adequate amount of water daily prevents numerous disorders like, diabetes, heart disease and gastro-intestinal disorders. This is because regular breakfast uptake maintains the blood sugar level of the body. In the other sense, it is an established fact that regular uptake of healthy breakfast increases the age.

It’s Not Easy To Be a Woman

Published

on

Woman has many definitions according to the mindset of people. I would define a woman as a multi-tasker capable of maintaining a balance between professional and personal lives similarly like a man. Hence, ideally the stress of survival for a man and a woman should be equivalent however; in the real situation life of a woman is not easy.

Yes, it is not easy to be a woman and I can provide several facts proving this but herein, I am giving ten momentous reasons to prove this:-

  1. When a girl is born, many times, the families are not happy. The birth of a girl is considered as a liability while that of a boy is considered as a moment of pride. This is the reason why female foeticide is prominent in the states of Haryana, Rajasthan and others.
  2. Even if the girl is not killed inside the mother’s womb, she is killed at every moment of life when the father considers her as a liability. Her pain is heartfelt when she is not allowed to play and study as her brothers and male cousins. She finds it is inhuman treatment when her parents ask her to do the household stuff because she is a girl. Yet, she gets accustomed to the circumstances.

Well! Because of these two main causes, the girls suffer other kinds of discrimination also. Coming back to them: –

  1. The girl has to get accustomed to the circumstances which she does not find favorable otherwise, she is considered as a characterless woman. The girls are considered as the reputation of the family and hence, their life is amidst numerous conditions while boys are free. The girl has to wear clothes accordingly otherwise she might be a victim of eve-teasing. It seems as if it’s the responsibility of the girl to protect herself from all the unwanted stuffs and the most of the times she should bear the nasty comments because she is a girl. Well! This is a norm but boys are often not punished for eve-teasing a girl except of the case, when girl rises the voice and make an official complaint strongly.
  2. Girl should not enjoy the late night parties or else her character is judged. A woman can neither come late to her house. A lady should not oppose the wrongdoers or else they can contaminate her character. After all, rapes happen in our nation but the problem is that the character of a rape victim is subjected to judgment but not the deed of the brutal rapist. A rapist can get married and start a family but a rape victim can’t.
  3. A normal woman should be a super-heroine. She should take care of her parents, her in-laws, her husband, her kids, her job, her house and everything else. And above all, if she misses even a duty, she can be a subject of humiliation, or harassment. She is neither safe in her house nor at her workplace. She can be a victim of sexual harassment at her workplace and if she oppose, her character is again at the stake of judgment. Same happens, even in her house wherein she could be a victim of domestic violence, emotional harassment, dowry harassment, marital rape and what not but being a woman she should endure every adverse circumstance.
  4. From her home to her workplace, she is not at all safe. The people tend to judge her character on the basis of her clothes, her lifestyle. Thus, she has to live her life according to her families’ and her society’s customs and she is not independent to live her life as she wants and if she opposes, than it’s not at all good for her.
  5. She should be educated, beautiful, intelligent, and must be earning well. Her parents must also give hefty dowry in order to get her married. When, everything is required yet, if a girl belonging to a typical Indian family wants to step out of her hometown for studies or job, her professional growth is amidst the constraints of the societal norms.
  6. Such is the mindset of our nation that we have help-lines to protect women and we have laws to provide justice but the basic necessities for a woman are considered to be the items of luxury. The Personal Hygiene Items for a woman are subjected to 12% of GST and are considered amongst the item of luxury while the Family Planning Items are considered as necessities and are tax-free. The hypocrisy of our nation is clear.
  7. Scientifically, the woman suffers the pain equivalent to the pain suffered during a heart attack during the five days of her menstrual cycle. And during pregnancy, the gestation period is also associated with unbearable pain with long-term consequences. Apart from this, the labor pain during the delivery of the child has an extremely high density. Every woman suffers this stuff in her lifetime and moreover, she endures and emerges out of it. Yet, she is considered to be fragile. The fact is that she is the strongest.
  8. The fathom of a woman’s heart is unbelievable. She is so much attached to her family and loved ones that she has stamina and power to sacrifice her career, her life. Yet, at any moment she can hear that she has not done anything.

Well! I was compelled to write this article due to the hypocrisies in our nation. We tend to respect and worship a woman Goddess Durga during Durga Pooja yet in reality; we tend not to respect the women in our lives. We tend to mistreat our mothers, sisters, spouses, friends etc by judging them at various moments of the life or by not encouraging them following their instinct. Herein, I don’t want to preach about equality or discrimination. All I want is that the readers must give a thought and feel the pain of the woman’s heart when she finds her life to be difficult because a woman’s life is not easy.
