INDIA IS SUPPOSED TO BE A DEMOCRACY BUT THE APEX COURT ITSELF IS DISMISSING HINDUS AND ALLOWING MUSLIM PETITIONS AT THE COST OF THOUSANDS OF LIVES AND OPEN LOOT. PLEASE READ:-

NOVEMBER 27TH 2007 -TUESDAY -THE HINDU
CMS meeting on security soon: PatiL


ARYA SAMAJ ACT OF 1937 AND ESTABLISHED IN 1875 BY HEINOUS DOUBLE OF EARTHLY RAT MORTAL DAYANAND ALIAS MOOLSHAMEKAR BORN IN SYMBOLIC 1824 AS KALKI AVTAAR IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE 24TH .
HIS SEAT WAS FIXED BY HIS DATE OF BIRTH WHICH WAS TOTALLY ISLAMIC BRITISH POLITICAL PLAN TO ECONOMICALLY EXPLOIT AND MORALLY FINISH BOTH INDIA AND HINDUISM .
THERE WERE 16 ANNAS IN A RUPPEE AND 12 ANNAS IN 75 PAISA WHICH IS ALSO HINDU 16TH DEATH SAMSKARA AND 12 JYOTIRLINGAS OF GOD OF MOKSHA SHIVA .
SO 1875 WAS CHOSEN FOR MORAL AND ECONOMIC EXPLOITATION OF HINDUSTAN BY THE IDOL AND WOMEN DESTROYERS CALLED ARYA SAMAJHIS .THE ENTIRE ARYAN RACE WHO HAD DESCENDED FROM VEDIC CULTURE AND HAD PASUPATI SEAL AS ITS CULTURAL UPHOLDER WAS MESSED UP BY CHOSING SUCH A NAME FOR SUCH A HEINOUS ACT,AND SAMAJ.THE GAME PLAN OF CRICKET BETTERS WAS TO FINISH THE MENTAL STRENGTH AND FAITH OF HINDUS SO THAT THEY BECOME AN IMPOTENT RACE DEVOID OF THEIR CULTURE,SAME AS SHIVAJI'S TIME ISLAMIC FILTH.

ALSO IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE NO.22 IN JABALPUR IS AN ARMY SIKH'S HOUSE NAMED AVTAAR SINGH-24TH RAT AVTAAR IN THE INDIAN ARMY AND KILLERS OF INDIRA GANDHI WHO CAME FROM THE LATRINE ON 31ST OCTOBER 1984 AS DAYANAND DIED AT THE AGE OF 59 ON DIWALI ON 31ST OCTOBER.
JUSTICE ADHIKARI OF JABALPUR HIGH COURT WHO WANTED JUSTICE FOR ALL BY THE INDIAN EVIDENCE ACT OF 1872 CLAUSE 45 ;"OPINION OF EXPERTS"ALSO SHOT HIMSELF IN THE LATRINE AND GOLDY CHADDHA OF 10TH CLASS DREW FILTHY PICTURES OF ME IN MY 7TH MONTH OF PREGNANCY IN SCA SCHOOL MEN'S TOILET JABALPUR.
IT IS BECAUSE THESE HEINOUS CHARACTERS DO NOT ALLOW LAW TO GIVE JUSTICE IN THIS WORLD AND ALSO DESTROY THE NATURAL JUSTICE FORMULA ADVOCATED BY HINDUISM THAT IF YOU DO HEINOUS ACTS IN THIS BIRTH YOU ARE BORN AS A MENIAL WORKER.

THAT IS WHY MENIAL WORKERS ARE NOW BEING ENCOURAGED TO BECOME THIEVES AND KILLERS ! AND GOOD PEOPLE ARE BEING GIVEN HELL BY ISLAM ,KHALISTANIS AND ARYA SAMAJ WHO HAVE FORMED A HEINOUS LAW UNTO THEMSELVES WITH THE HELP OF BRITAIN WHICH ONLY WANTS TO LOOT INDIA BY ORGANIZED CRIME.
PLEASE SEE THESE ANTI NATIONALS -MAKING A MOCKERY OF THE ARMY LAW ACT 1950 AND OTHER SYMBOLISM ON THE FRONT PAGE OF HINDUSTAN TIMES ON 21ST MAY 1991,THE DAY RAJIV GANDHI WAS KILLED!1984 WAS SIKH RIOTS AND MEERUT IS THE BEIRUT OF RUT SEX ADVOCATED BY THESE HEINOUS HYENAS.

MENTAL HEALTH DAY 10-10-2007

Audio here

10th October, 1964, is considered to be one of the blackest days in the Bollywood Film Industry. This was the day when Maestro Director Guru Dutt died at his residence apparently due to overdose of sleeping pills. It left millions of his fans including myself with deep sorrow and with a sense of great loss. He was only 39 when he died. But in short span of Guru Dutts 13 year film career, he is considered to be one of very few artists who achieved tremendously in the Hindi Film Industry.

Guru Dutt, a Sarswat Brahmin, was born on 9th July, 1925, in Bangalore to a middle class Couple Shri Shivashankar Padukone and Vasanthi Padukone. His parents moved to Calcutta when Guru Dutt was a small child. Guru Dutt's mother tongue was Konkani (a dialect of Marathi) and not Bengali or Kannada as some people wrongly think. Guru Dutt's creative uncle Shri B. B. Benegal had a great flair for art and music.

Lodha appointed Birla Corp Chairman'

Kohinoor Mandal

Kolkata , June 25

A LITTLE less than a year after the demise of Priyamvada Birla, Mr Rajendra Singh Lodha has been appointed chairman of the Rs 1,360-crore Birla Corporation Ltd, the flagship company of the MP Birla Group.

The development came to light when the company faxed its annual result for the year 2004-05 to Business Line on Friday after the board of directors approved it. On behalf of the company, the results were signed by Mr Lodha, his designation being given as Chairman.

Sources said the board of directors unanimously appointed Mr Lodha as Chairman. Earlier, even when Priyamvada Birla was alive, the results used to be signed by the Managing Director, Mr K.C. Mittal. Several attempts were made to contact Mr Mittal but he was not available.

However, the company did not issue any notice to the BSE or any other stock exchange about this development though such intimation was made on two earlier occasions when there was a change in the company's board of directors.

On April 5, 2005, it was stated that Mr Ajay Saraf, an ICICI nominee, ceased to be a director as the Birla Corporation had paid off a loan. Similarly, on April 8, it was posted that Mr D Bhandari of UTI ceased to be a company director. Both these changes were intimated to the BSE.

Prior to the death of Priyamvada Birla, Mr Lodha was co-chairman of the company. He continued to occupy that position and the board preferred not to elevate him to the Chairman's post.

However, attention was directed towards Mr Lodha's directorship in September last year, when a group of minority shareholders went to the Company Law Board on the issue. In March 2005, the CLB cleared his name of all charges.

Sources said that Mr Lodha could have become the Chairman of the company in April itself but it was delayed because there was no board meeting. The first meeting after the CLB order was held on Friday.

Legal counsel of Mr Lodha and the Birlas appeared to be unaware of this development. Even senior officials of the Birla group were in the dark when told about Mr Lodha's elevation.

Meanwhile, for the year ended March 31, 2005, Birla Corporation registered its highest ever turnover of Rs 1,343 crore. Its profit after tax was Rs 87 crore and a dividend of 15 per cent was declared.

  3. New Delhi, March 31: The Birla family's bid to protect the Rs 5,000 crore estate of late Priyamvada Birla suffered a set back on Monday with the Supreme Court dismissing three petitions that challenged the Calcutta High Court order which denied them the right to object to her purported 1999 Will.

11. It also dismissed another petition filed by Birlas' challenging Chartered Accountant R S Lodha's right to object to M P Birla and his wife Priyamvada's 1982 Will, through which the couple left their property for charity.

12. However, through a purportedly revised 1999 Will after her husband's death, Priyamvada had bequeathed her Rs 5,000 crore estate to Lodha.

13. A bench headed by Justice S B Sinha, while dismissing the petitions, has imposed cost of Rs 10 lakh (2.5 lakh each) on the petitions filed by the three Birla family members - K K Birla, B K Birla and Yashovardhan Birla.

14. It also directed the Birlas to deposit the money with the West Bengal Legal Services Cell within four weeks. However, the bench while dismissing Lodha's petition

15. upheld the caveatable interest of another Birla family member, G P Birla, executor of the purported July 13, 1982 Will of M P Birla and his wife Priyamvada. Earlier, the High Court had held that G P Birla only had the right to challenge the purported 1999 will as a 'sham and invalid document'.

16. The apex court also allowed Lodha's plea challenging the appointment of Yashovardhan Birla as executor of the Will.

17. Justice Sinha while reading the operative portion of the judgement also directed the High Court to decide the probate pleas expeditiously and hear the Priyamvada 1999 Will first, followed by the 1982 Will of M P Birla.

18. Challenging the High Court's decision, K K Birla, B K Birla and Yashovardhan Birla had submitted that it was not merely the power of the trustees but also their duty to see that the Rs 5,000-crore Priyamvada Birla estate was not being appropriated and was given to three public charities as designated under the mutual Wills executed by M P Birla and Priyamvada in 1982.

19. As trustees and potential beneficiaries under the mutual Wills of 1982, they were duty bound to contest the Will of 1999 and oppose the grant of probate so that they were not being accused of breach of trust, they argued.

20. Lodha, on the other hand, said under the 1982 Will, M P Birla's widow Priyamvada Birla had got the absolute rights in the property, and she had bequeathed the entire estate to Lodha after her death in July 2004 through a Will of 1999.

21. "The three Birla members are opposing the probate because they have got nothing and want to claim interest by contesting the 1999 Will," he said in its petition.

22. Their interests can be carried on by other Birla family member and the executor of the purported July 13, 1982 Will - G P Birla - and others executors who have been given the right by the High Court to challenge the purported 1999 Will," Lodha added.

23. According to the petitions, the three Birla family members in their capacities as relatives of the deceased, had interests coupled with duty to ensure that the wishes of M P Birla (being a Hindu) to attain spiritual well being and atonement of his sins, if any, by bequeathing his property to charity after his demise or his wife's demise were fulfilled.

24. They further added that a Hindu by religion considered charity an essential part of religion, whereby he or she attains spiritual benefit.

Getting to know G.D. Birla

N. S. Vageesh

The Life And Times Of G. D. Birla
By Medha M. Kudaisya
Publishers:
Oxford University Press
Price: Rs 850

It's 20 years since G.D. Birla passed away. Yet for thousands of families in South India,

his name is quite familiar - they have sent their boys and girls to the Birla Institute of

Technology and Science at Pilani for engineering courses.

Whether it was in starting and endowing educational institutions and hostels or in

building temples and supporting other religious causes across the country, or in the

way he bankrolled the freedom movement and the Congress leaders, G.D. Birla stands

in a class of his own as a philanthropist. "The Life and Times of G D Birla" by Medha

M. Kudaisya is a useful in understanding the contributions and impact made by this man.

The book traces the history of the Birlas from their origins in Pilani, their move to

Calcutta and assumption of a prominent role in the Marwari community and their

gradual switch to industry from their trading background, in the first two decades

of the 20th century.

Birla's public career begins with his nomination to the Bengal Legislative Council by

the Governor, who picks him in a bid to strengthen the moderate elements of the

Marwari community, which was facing its own struggles with the extremist and

wing. Around this time, Birla, along with his brothers, forayed into the world of

newspaper publishing by taking over two papers in Calcutta. Birla soon came

under the influence of nationalist leader Madan Mohan Malaviya and then

Mahatma Gandhi. The Birla family also turned to these two, when they faced

ostracism within the community over a social dispute.

Birla's frosty relationship with Nehru (because of his closeness to Sardar Patel)

suffered a little more when he staved off a move to turn the Birla House in Delhi

(where Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated) into a national memorial.

He also suffered considerable indifference at the hands of leaders such as Indira

Gandhi, Morarji Desai among others. When their underlings took pot shots at him,

these leaders didn't call off the hounds. But to his eternal credit, Birla demonstrates

a statesman like quality - in not yielding to the temptation to give a heave-ho to

the Congress at that stage. He continued to offer it both moral and financial support

and hoped to change it from inside, rather than break ranks and strengthen the forces

of the leftists and communists.

Birla rendered yeoman service to this country in his capacity as an unofficial

ambassador to financial institutions such as IMF, World Bank, etc during the 1960s.

His contribution to economic planning through the Bombay plan initiative in mid 1940s

is also noteworthy.

The 1940s and 1960s were difficult years for India in the immediate aftermath

of partition. The Birla Empire managed to grow and became the second largest

industrial group in the country. But it is a bit of irony that the man who had such

clear cut ideas on partition failed to foresee the shape his own empire would take

. The attempts to partition the Birla Empire on the basis of "line of control"

ended up in creating discontent and left him open to charges of favouritism

towards B.K. Birla and grandson Aditya.

If at all this book has one big failing, it would be that it couldn't throw light on

how he actually generated so much money? He is said to have remarked that

his business ran on "auto-pilot" and that he was called in only to make the big

momentous decisions.

How did he get the kind of managerial talent to run so many businesses?

How did he handle his managers? How did he get the time to devote himself

to national causes and still keep his businesses profitable?

Even with the extensive family support system that the Birla family had and

the loyalty of their top brass that they enjoyed, it must have been a mighty task.

But even without these details, there is a considerable amount of insight and

inspiration that a number of fellow industrialists in the current generation can

take from this book.

There is one passage in particular which is a must read for them - a quotation

given in the annexure in the chapter on "The spokesman of Indian big business",

where Birla speaks in the Central Legislative Assembly during a debate in March

1930, after being attacked by a British minister for supporting the increase in excise

duty on kerosene because he was interested in oil imports. Birla says, "

It is quite correct that I have a small interest in the import of kerosene oil, but in

this House, Sir, I represent only one interest... . Sir, it is a mere coincidence that

I happen to have a special interest in all the five things, which it is proposed to tax

in the present finance bill. Sir, I am a small importer of sugar, and as such I do not

like the import duty; and yet, in the national interest, I have supported it. Then Sir

, I carry large stocks of silver, and therefore the silver duty has benefited me

considerably, and yet I have opposed the silver duty. Then again, Sir, the income

tax touches my pocket directly, but I have not said a word against it.

And Sir, the proposal for Imperial Preference is calculated to benefit my own mills

- situated as they are in the up country - more than the Bombay mills, and yet,

in the national interest, I have opposed it. Therefore, Sir, if I have supported

the present proposal, I have done so because I felt that the national interest

demanded that the excise duty and import duty should be equalised".

Mr. Harsh V. Lodha (Director)

Mr Harsh V Lodha is an eminent Chartered Accountant and Partner of Lodha &

Co.,

Chartered Accountants, a member firm of BDO International, the fifth largest

accounting and consulting firm in the world. He is on the Boards of several

reputed companies and has served on the Executive Committee of FICCI,

and as Chairman of its Corporate Laws & Governance Committee and Co-Chairman

of its Young Leaders Forum. Mr Lodha has been actively involved in significant

in the areas of takeovers and mergers/reconstructions and rehabilitations,

international and domestic financing, project structuring, capital mobilization,

joint ventures and collaborations.

Background

The BDO story begins in 1963.

Accounting firms from the UK,

Netherlands, Germany, US and Canada

saw the opportunity to combine and thus

expand their knowledge base and

relative strength. The resulting Binder

Seidman International Group worked together

as a network of firms until 1973, when the

common name of Binder Dijker Otte & Co

was adopted.

In 1988, a world wide structure was formed

and to ensure that local strength retained its prevalence as one of the network’s underlying

goals, the acronym of BDO was agreed upon,

placed before each local Member Firm’s name.

At the same time, a logo and corporate identity

was created that promoted consistency

throughout the network.

Since then, the BDO network has

undergone a transformation that now sees

it as the world’s fifth largest accounting

network, with more than 620 offices in

over 110 countries. A combined workforce

of almost 32,000 people continues to promote

and extend the values and objectives

foreseen from the outset. BDO is known for

client rapport and partner accessibility, for

extensive local knowledge combined with a

global outlook, and for partners and staff who

are challenging, ethical and practical in their

approach and advice to clients.

The organisation’s growth has continued year

on year and the international network

continues to serve BDO and its clients well in changing economic and market conditions.

BDO has weathered the accountancy scandals

around the world and embraced the new

regime of Sarbanes-Oxley. BDO Member Firms

use a best practice approach to methodology and international collaboration and this, along with an unchallenged knowledge and understanding at a

local level, makes them able to do this in a manner which preserves both our reputation and our transparency to the market.

Auditors, accountants and advisers are operating

in a world of five dimensions:

  • Clients - and prospective clients –the principal stakeholders
  • The regulators – professional services firms have to follow regulations because of their public responsibility, and BDO’s presence at many a forum, conference and meeting means that the regulators know BDO. BDO has the most PCAOB registered firms in the world outside the 'big 4', and the number of listed clients in the major economies is continues to grow
  • The standard setters - global businesses require consistent services for which the standards must be set internationally. By virtue of consistent reactions to exposure drafts and other published materials, the IASB and FASB are well aware of BDO’s input in this area
  • The users - investors, audit committees, the institutions, journalists, opinion formers, employees actual and potential – all are aware that BDO provides a distinctively different option - and for them, having an increased choice of auditors is critical
  • The competitors – know BDO well: they are consistently confronted with views and opinions in international forums and conferences. BDO participates in the GPPC over public policy issues and, together with the 'big 4' and Grant Thornton, drafted the vision report on financial reporting that was published in Paris in November 2006, as well as the IFRS awareness paper in December 2007.

BIRLA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AND SCIENCE, PILANI: Easy Does It
Besides academic rigor, and strong industry interface, bits’ advantage comes from the philosophy to keep things functional and simple

Tuesday, May 25, 2004

BITS came into being with the merger of Birla College of Arts, Birla College of Engineering and the Birla College of Science, Commerce and Engineering in 1964. In its early years BITS had collaborated with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and it is by the virtue of this collaboration that BITS still retains that flavor of the American education system.

BITS Pilani, unlike other institutions, does not conduct an entrance examination but offers admission on the marks obtained in the 10+2 examination. The marks obtained are normalized and the merit list then created. "This does not put extra burden on the applicants to prepare for an entrance and it has worked well for us for the last 30 years," says Dr LK Maheshwari, director, BITS Pilani.

Practice School
Apart from the academic rigor, BITS Pilani places an unmatched emphasis on live projects. Every student has to spend two months after the second and the entire seventh or the eighth semester in an organization working on a live project. A faculty member is also deputed to guide and work on the project onsite. The list of companies or Practice Schools, as they are known as in campus lingo, is long and includes companies like Cognizant,, Honeywell, HP Labs, i-flex, Motorola, Intel, Sun and Wipro. "The projects are allocated to students on merit and other considerations that are specified from to time," says Prof. VS Rao, deputy director and dean (Practice School division).

Strong Industry Interface
Apart from the Practice Schools, the faculty and students of BITS Pilani work with the industry on a number of research projects of mutual importance. For instance, BITS houses the IBM Laboratory for Visual Programming Technologies as a wind of its Center for Software Development. The IPv6@BITS project received a lot of interest and acclaim, and made BITS the first connected IPv6 internetwork of India. BITS Pilani now has eleven international IPv6 tunnels running to Canada, Singapore, Korea and China.

Industry Interface
Practice School: Students spend two months after their fourth semester and their last or their penultimate semester of five and a half months training on a live project
BITS works on collaborative research projects with IBM, Motorola, Intel among others

The institute has also upgraded the facilities of its VLSI design lab. It also has the Cisco BITS Advanced Networking lab for research in the areas of VPN and video-on-demand.

Philosophical Matters
Barring the technology at BITS, everything else at the sprawling campus reflects the philosophy of the institute, which is to keep things functional and simple. Whether it is the furniture or the design of the campus. For instance the administration block built in 1948 is still big enough to allow smooth functioning of the institute even though it has grown five-fold since then.

The technology, however, is state-of-the-art, including BITS Connect, their network which was funded totally by BITS alumni. The institute ensures that the students get a hang of the latest. Students can opt for technology-specific certifications but only in the evening. BITSians therefore have no problem during placement time. Infosys alone picked up as many as 200 students from campus last year and the average salary for a BTech graduate was Rs 2.75 lakh per annum and while the highest went up to Rs 11 lakh per annum.
