about working towards gender equality The actor on Sunday unveiled a Common Women poster of RK Laxman’s granddaughter in Mumbai “We should start with equality in education where you have the right to say something to stand for something which you believe in Feminist isn’t someone who is going to ask for a reservation or extra rights or an edge over the other gender… No that’s not called feminism

remained a “common woman” after all the fame and fan following she said “I would like to thank those people who are from outside the film industry those who have supported me and brought in me the sense of being a common woman That is very important because when you are an actor you can lose the sense of reality “You have to be very real very grounded and very normal and that’s where my family

without informing its chairman Niranjan Shah who in turn shot off a letter to acting Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary The PTI is in possession of Shah’s protest letter where he has alleged that the meeting has been called without intimating him and should be postponed “I am surprised that a meeting of NCA has been called on September 15 and notice of the same has not been sent to me even though I am the chairman of NCA officially constituted by the BCCI” Shah wrote in his letter to Chaudhary While Shah was appointed NCA chairman but it was in violation of Lodha Committee recommendations as he is above 70 years The BCCI brass didn’t want to take a chance this time as they don’t want another round of wrap in the knuckles from the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (COA)

the world the Bhagavad Gitait is ironic how often its core message is ignored Take for instancethe world of science and technology Just like the quadrennial Olympics or Asian Games produce a momentaryalbeit passionateinterest in sportsour interest in science is fleetingly elevated during the times when Nobel Prizes are given out As the often heard message from the Gita tells youit is the labour of science itself and not rewards like the Nobel Prize that one must strive for The most recent laureate of Indian originVenky Ramakrishnanstressed this point during a recent interaction with students in Delhi There are several reasons why I think this is important From a purely statistical point of viewthe odds of a scientist winning a Nobel Prize are comparable to the odds of winning a lottery No rational scientist would set out to win a Nobel Prize at the beginning of her career More importantlyits the pleasure of doing science rather than winning prizes that drives successful scientists like Ramakrishnan The rewards of pursuing basic science are often unexpected and realised over the long term Not even Ramanujan could have predicted that the esoteric mathematical problems he was pursuing would have implications in the very practical problem of security encryption today The elucidation of the structure of the atom was key to advances ranging from nuclear energy to semiconductor research and the ubiquitous computer The list is endless None of these advances would have been possible if a short-sighted view of basic research had been takenFrom the nations point of viewhistory has shown that scientifically advanced nations have not only been able to protect themselves better during times of war but also feedclothe and care for the health of their citizens An often heard debate is that regarding the allocation of resources to the pursuit of science vis-à-vis immediate priorities and needs There is no easy answer to this question but a model that has worked well in America is to build an eco-system that represents different interests Researchers who pursue basic sciencetechnologists who seek to translate viable ideas into applicationsentrepreneurs who are able to create a market for new products and ideas and finally a population that has the risk appetite to try things new and untested This is easier said than done but the recognition that it takes many different kinds of people to build the ecosystem is essential The ivory tower academic and the cynic who seeks only immediate solutions are both undesirable extremesSo what can India do to encourage younger people to pursue science The easy and lazy answer is to say that things will just improve as the economy grows and the nation has more resources to spend on science Howeverthe trouble with this approach is that science and technology are influencing our lives to an ever greater extent Our chalta-hai attitude could lead us to fall far behind nations that are pro-actively pursuing basic research Given the demographic dividend that we are assured is our path to prosperitywe need to use this base of young people to also further scientific research in this country Parents need to inculcate a greater curiosity in children and encourage them to question things around them Young adults moving out of college and into careers have to acquire the maturity to look beyond the best-paying job they can lay their hands on and try to find what it is that really interests them Role models play a huge role in this process and people like Ramakrishnan or Amartya Sen can exercise a huge influence on students by speaking about these issues One practical step that the government could take is to hugely increase the number of science graduates from our premier technological institutes like the IITs Given that they already possess the basic infrastructure to do so and given that they attract a large number of students who have done well in science at the school levelit would make definite sense to increase the number of pure science graduates from these institutions The boundary between science and technology is only blurring as the years go by and having these institutes generate more science graduates would help both the IITs and the pursuit of science in India Last but not leastresearch carries with it the pure pleasure of discovering natures laws

us contest the election is impossible" 41-year-old Alexie Navalnyrecently said in a blog post The anti-corruption activist from Moscow is being considered the formidable foe Russia president Vladimir Putin has faced during 18 years in power Though Navalny is prohibited from seeking political office because of a criminal conviction that is largely viewed as retribution and may not be able to run in the upcoming Russia presidential election taking place in March 2018 on Sunday he submitted all documents needed to register as a candidate to the Cheif Election Commission of Russia File image of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny Reuters Navalny can enter the race if he gets special dispensation or the conviction is thrown out The commission has the time of five days to decide whether or not Navalny will be registered On Sunday Navalny appeared confident as hundreds of supporters nominated him for president allowing him to submit the endorsement papers required for candidacy and putting pressure on the Kremlin to allow him to run in the Russian presidential election scheduled to take place in March 2018 According to Reuters the anti-corruption activist won the initial support of 742 people at a gathering in a district of Moscow above the minimum 500 required to initiate a presidential bid “There is no large-scale support for Putin and his rule in this country” Navalny tolda gathering of supporters on Sunday calling Putin a "bad president" The Western-educated lawyer says he is the only Russian politician who has been conducting a genuine election campaign travelling to far-flung regions over the past year and urging everyday Russians to vote for him "An election without us is not an election" Navalny declared before submitting the papers according to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Putin 65 is seeking a fourth term in office as president The Russia president who enjoys approval ratings of 80 percent according to Russian agencies is expected to sail to victory against token opponents despite a litany of problems such as corruption poor healthcare and increasing poverty But does Navalny have what it takes to end Putin’srun forthe fourth term and prevent him from becoming the longest-serving Russian leader since dictator Joseph Stalin Born on 4 June 1976 at Butyn Navalny graduated in law in 1998 from Moscow’s Friendship of the Peoples University says Al-Jazeera "He rose to prominence in Russian politics in 2008 when he started blogging about alleged corruption at some of Russia’s big state-controlled corporations" the report adds According to reports Navalny became minor shareholders in big national companies and would ask uncomfortable questions about state finances and corruption Navalny relies a lot on social media to reach out to his supporters mostly from the younger generation in Russia and while talking about issues related to corruption "Ahead of the 2011 parliamentary election in Russia which he did not fight as a candidate Navalny urged his blog readers to vote for any party except United Russia which he dubbed the ‘party of crooks and thieves’ The phrase stuck" writes BBC of the Russian opposition leader Putin was re-elected in 2011 however the anti-Putin rallies that shook Russia from 2011 to 2012 following claims of vote-rigging in the parliamentary polls helped Navalny rise to prominence BBCadds that Navalny was "arrested following the first protest on 5 December 2011. but emerged to speak at the biggest of the post-election rallies in Moscow on 24 December attended by as many as 120000 people" Official figures quote the attendance at 24000 Though the protests died down the Investigative Committee in Russia "launched criminal investigations into Navalny’s past activities even questioning his credentials as a lawyer" In 2013 Navalny contested the mayoral election in Moscow his first major formal election against Sergei Sobyanin a Kremlin-backed candidate The activist lawyer came second securing 27 percent votes "Navalny launched hundreds of lawsuits contesting the victory of his rival" says Al-Jazeera BBCinforms that Navalny was briefly jailed in July 2013 for embezzling timber worth $500000 in the city of Kirov He was awarded a five-year sentence during the first trial According to The Guardian during the trial Navalny vowed that he and his colleagues will "destroy the feudal system in Russia where 83% of the national wealth belongs to 05 percent of the country" Though the conviction was overturned by the Russian Supreme Court in 2017 he was handed down a five-year suspended prison sentence and a fine of about $8500 Navalny had then termed it an attempt to "bar him from running the presidency in 2018" In 2015 Navalny had to serve 15 days in prison for distributing pamphlets for an opposition rally on the subway Navalny’s tryst with courts and the authorities has led some to parallel him with the Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky however he has faced criticism from the anti-Putin camp as well Liberals in Russia detest Navalny for his ‘flirtations’ with ultra-conservative groups At the same time his education at Yale University has led some Russian nationalists to suspect his ties with the US Navalny however has built a robust protest movement that includes nearly 200000 campaign volunteers despite persistent harassment of himself and his supporters and his offices being vandalised Just this year he has served three jail sentences of 15 days 25 days and 20 days for organising unauthorised anti-Putin protests All of which has actually helped Navalny tap into the anger of a younger generation of Russians yearning for change Many critics scoff at Navalny’s Kremlin bid but the plucky lawyer says he would beat Putin in a free election if he had access to state-controlled television the main source of news for a majority of Russians During his end-of-the-year news conference this month Putin said the opposition was hoping for a "coup" when asked why Navalny had been barred from running At a congress of the ruling United Russia party Putin on Saturday said the opposition should have a "clear programme of positive actions" "We should respect the capable and responsible opposition And being such opposition means not only having a desire a readiness to argue with the authorities or accuse them of all mortal sins"
