Nayantara Sahgal protests Dadri lynching, returns Akademi award

Her protest is “in memory of the Indians who have been murdered, in support of all Indians who uphold the right to dissent, and of all dissenters who now live in fear and uncertainty”.

Noted writer Nayantara Sahgal has returned the prestigious Sahitya Akademi Award in protest against what she called the “vanishing space” for diversity.

The niece of the former Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, also said people were being “killed for not agreeing with the ruling ideology.”

Referring to the recent killings of rationalists and writers M.M. Kalburgi, Narendra Dabholkar and Govind Pansare and of Dadri resident Mohammad Akhlaq, who was lynched on suspicion of consuming beef, Ms. Sahgal, speaking to The Hindu from her home in Dehradun, said: “…in this rising tide of hatred, India is being unmade, being destroyed.”

Despite having 96%, denied job! Youth seeks P.M Modi’s help

A young man in New Delhi is seeking Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s intervention after the railways denied him a job although he secured 96 per cent in a recruitment exam.

It was in December 2013 that 31-year-old Lalit Kumar appeared in the Northern Railway Group D exam.

When the results came out, he was declared not selected. Convinced that something was wrong, he chose to file a query under the Right to Information (RTI) Act.

After a year, he got a reply that his candidature was cancelled by the Railway Recruitment Cell (RRC) because it was felt that he could have scored 96 per cent marks, way above the cut-off mark, only by using unfair means.

Not satisfied with the response, he kept going to the Central Public Information Officer (CPIO) in the Northern Railway office at Baroda House.

Seeing his persistence, officials told him to file an appeal with the Central Information Commission (CIC).

“I filed my appeals with the First Appellate Authority (FAA) and CIC,” he told IANS.

Finally, in July 2015, CIC fixed the appeal for hearing though the FAA didn’t respond.

On August 10, the CIC asked the CPIO, which alleged that he used unfair means in the examination, to provide the reasons within 30 days explaining why he was not selected.

“They didn’t have any proof or evidence that I was involved in cheating or used unfair means. I challenge them to prove it,” he said.

He is now pursuing Bachelor of Social Work at the Indira Gandhi National Open University.

He also works for the Delhi Transport Corporation as a conductor to support his family.

“I come from a poor family. My father needs constant care as he is bedridden with paralysis. The result of the exam meant a lot to me and my family,” he told IANS.

He has now written to the Prime Minister’s Office, seeking justice.

LIFE..

Life is like a race, which we all have to face..

Many ups & downs come & go, what’ll happen we never know..

Life is like a candle, which we have to handle..

Enjoy before it melts, Don’t bother what others felt..

All of us’ve different goals, which are not fixed on walls..

It’s decided by the God, who’ll shimmer like a rod..

It’s not always full of joy, like a child playing with toy..

Never take it for granted,

It’s like a tree to be planted..!!

Microsoft to bypass operators with Windows 10 Mobile updates

Microsoft-to-bypass-operators-with-Windows-10-Mobile-updates

Waiting for mobile OS updates to reach your shiny handset is one of the most frustrating (first world) problems there is, so it’s encouraging to hear that Microsoft is planning to take matters out of the hands of operators and manage Windows 10 Mobile updates itself.

That means new versions should arrive on your mobile device in much the same way as they do on your laptop or desktop. It’s the approach used by Apple for iOS and should minimise problems with fragmentation in the years to come.

New WhatsApp update brings a UI overhaul for Android 5.0 users

New-WhatsApp-update-brings-a-UI-overhaul-for-Android-5-0-users

WhatsApp for Android has received a new update which finally brings it line with Google’s Material Design philosophy that was introduced with Android 5.0 Lollipop.
This version has been live on WhatsApp’s servers for quite some time now, but those reliant on the Play Store version are seeing these changes for the first time.
The colors are more prominent now and a little darker to catch your eye even better. The same interface as the previous version is available which divides your home window into Calls, Chats and Contacts. There are some changes in the way icons are designed, but apart from that, there’s not much you can tell apart in terms of changes.
The update has already gone live on the Play Store, so your smartphone should have it by now. Alternatively, you can head over to whatsapp.com from your smartphone browser, view the page in the desktop version and download the latest apk file from there to make sure your phone has the latest iteration of the app.
There was enough buzz among WhatsApp fans when the voice calling feature was enabled a month ago. This feature was initially said to be rolling out to a few users in early 2015, but WhatsApp finally decided to bring it to all.

Airtel Zero, Internet.org against net neutrality: MTNL

NEW DELHI: State-run MTNL has said Bharti Airtel’s ‘zero rating plan’ and RCom’s ‘internet.org’ scheme defeat the basic concept of net neutrality and such pacts should not be allowed as they affect economic interests of small telecom operators.

“In Airtel ‘zero rating plan’ and Reliance ‘internet.org’ these operators have directly negotiated with the application providers. MTNL is of the view that in any case, direct negotiations between OTT players and TSPs should not be allowed,” the telecom operator said in its counter comments submitted to sectoral regulator TRAI.
