Students of MANUU commemorate Faiz birth centenary

Friday, 4 March 2011

Hyderabad, March 4: The sweetness and evocativeness of Urdu still holds considerable sway today. Drawn particularly by the musical charms of the ghazal, people are then impelled to further explore its subtleties by paying closer attention to the language in which it is conveyed.
A living testimony to this is the oral certificate course “Tahseen-e-Ghazal” offered by the Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU). And a practical demonstration, lending new hope for the future of Urdu in the country, was the programme “Ek Shaam Faiz ke Saath” organised by the students of the course as part of the birth centenary celebrations of the revolutionary poet Faiz Ahmed “Faiz” under the aegis of the university’s Centre for Urdu Language, Literature and Culture & Dept. of Urdu at the Ramanuja Chary Hall at Maheshwari Complex, Masab Tank, here on Wednesday, March 2, 2011.
The function was presided over by Vice-Chancellor Mohammed Miyan. The chief guests were the doyenne of cultural activities in the city, Lakshmi Devi Raj, and noted critic Prof. Khalid Qadri. Director in-charge of the centre Prof. Khalid Saeed and head, department of Urdu, Dr Naseemuddin Farees were the joint-conveners. Dr Khaja Naseer introduced the guests and the programme was compeered by Sarah Matthews, which owed so much to lawyer-philanthropist Mehmood Ali who has made the premises freely available for the conduct of the course as a whole.

Saudis to hold 'Day of Rage' rally

Friday, 4 March 2011

Riyadh, March 04: A group of Saudi activists have called for a “Day of Rage” rally in the oil-rich Eastern Province after Friday prayers, following the arrest of a Shia cleric.
The Friday event in Al-Hufuf is organized by a group of 500 cyber activists on Facebook.
The organizers have called on the protesters to call for the release of Sheikh Tawfiq al-Amer, AFP reported.

Amer was incarcerated after he called for a “constitutional monarch” in the kingdom.
Amer has been arrested several times over his demands for giving Saudi Shias further freedom to exercise their religious rights.
This comes as tens of thousands of people are preparing themselves to attend the protests after the Saudi youths named March 11 the Day of Rage on the social networking website, Face book.
On February 23, Saudi King Abdullah suddenly promised a $36-billion package of extra benefits for his people, upon his return from a long medical journey to the US and Morocco.
He also granted pardon to some prisoners indicted for financial crimes and ordered the implementation of a 15-percent pay hike for state employees as well as an increase in the cash available for Saudi housing loans.
Analysts believe the huge hike in benefits introduced by the Saudi king is actually intended to avert an uprising in the country.
In recent weeks, a wave of revolutions and anti-government uprisings has spread across the Arab world.

How I Became A Successful (Part-Time) Import/Export Agent

Justin Power  

“Several years ago, when I was invited to sit on the board of Wade World Trade, an educational institution established in 1946 to help entrepreneurs become import/export agents, I thought I would try it out for myself. I have to say that although I am not a natural entrepreneur (I hate anything which smacks of 'selling') I have never regretted the decision”

“My first challenge was to find something to import or export. After much thought I decided I had to pick an area I was interested in anyway so I chose food. Since 'artisan' food producers are not very commercial it was a good decision. They find it easy to sell their products locally but tend to be hopeless at marketing overseas. I soon negotiated agency agreements with half a dozen companies for a range of related products - jams, chutneys, oaten biscuits, relishes, tea, hot chocolate and chocolate. All were manufactured (or at least packaged) in the UK and none had ever been exported”

NRIs want to vote, but through postal ballot

Washington, March 04: Indians in America have welcomed the Election Commission's move to permit non-resident Indians to vote back home, but feel it would be a tough call to go to India just to vote.
 Instead NRIs should be allowed to vote by postal ballot, electronically or at Indian missions abroad. They could also be given separate representation in the Indian parliament, community leaders told IANS.
 "We very much welcome this," said Thomas Abraham, Founder President, Global Organization of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO) International recalling, "We have been campaigning on this since 2000."
 "On the other hand, it will be extremely difficult for 10 million or more Indian citizens to travel to India during the election time to vote in their constituencies," he said.
 "With the advancement of technology, it would be easier to have electronic voting and the government should consider implementing this process," said Abraham who is also the founder president of the national Federation of Indian American Associations (NFIA).
 "An effective way for overseas voters to actively participate in the democratic process would be to have representation for overseas Indian citizens in the parliament," he said suggesting a constitutional amendment to provide for five Lok Sabha seats for ten million Indian citizens living outside India.
 As a beginning, a couple NRIs should be nominated to the Rajya Sabha by the President of India, he said adding, "If India is aspiring for progress, such opportunities have to be provided to Indian citizens living outside India as full participants for India's development."
 George Abraham, General Secretary of Indian National Overseas Congress, USA described the Election Commission's move as "a significant step in getting the NRIs voices heard for the first time through the ballot boxes."
 "However, it would be impractical for most of the NRIs to travel to India for the sole purpose of participating in an election," he said.

SC issues notices to Advani, Joshi and others

UPDATED  4/3/2011 1:56:16 PM

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday asked BJP leaders LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi, Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray and others to spell out their stands on a CBI plea for restoration of charges of hatching a criminal conspiracy to demolish the Babri Masjid in 1992 against them.

A bench of justices V S Sirpurkar and T S Thakur sought to know their stands while issuing notices to them and asking them to file their replies within four weeks. The apex court issued the notices after Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium, appearing for the CBI, questioned the legality of the Allahabad High Court`s order last May, upholding a special CBI judge`s decision to quash the charges of criminal conspiracy against the leaders.

The CBI has moved the apex court challenging the High Court`s May 20, 2010 order, dismissing the CBI plea for revival of criminal conspiracy charges against top BJP and Sangh Parivar leaders, which also included Ashok Singhal, Giriraj Kishore, Vinay Katiyar, Vishnu Hari Dalmiya, Sadhvi Rithambara and Mahant Avaidya Nath.

The other leaders were former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Uma Bharti and former Uttar PradeshChief Minister Kalyan Singh. Challenging the High Court order, the CBI has said in its petition that "it appears an artificial distinction was made by the trial court attempting to assign a role in respect of each of the accused persons and to see which offences were made out. The trial court erroneously came to the conclusion that 21 persons were not entitled to be tried in the case (pertaining to the demolition on December 6, 1992).

"The order passed by the High Court results in serious miscarriage of justice, violates the principle of consolidated investigation, consolidated charge sheet and also disables an effective trial," the petition has said. (PTI)
