Finally,Official Date Of Birth Decided !
General Singh’s lawyer Puneet Bali, confirmed today that the petition from General V K Singh was withdrawn as the Army Chief was fighting for his honour and integrity and not for extention of his service tenure and the dignity has been restored.
Earlier today, the Supreme Court directed General V K Singh to accept May 10, 1950 as his date of birth and asked him to withdraw his plea failing which the court would pass an order on it. General Singh’s date of birth in Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) records is May 10, 1950 while his matriculation certificate has 1951 as the year of birth. The court told the General that the UPSC document was the most relevant document for recognition of age.
The apex court said that the recognition of General Singh’s date of birth as May 10, 1950 by the Army does not suffer from perversity and is not grossly erroneous. The judges asked General Singh why he did not get his date of birth corrected with the UPSC that had recorded it as May 10, 1950 and why did he fill up the Indian Military Academy form mentioning his date of birth as May 10, 1950 ?
The bench pointed out that all documents at threshold when General Singh joined the NDA and the IMA recorded his date of birth as May 10, 1950, which the Defence Ministry maintains is the official records. Observing that all threshold documents show his date of birth as May 10, 1950, the judges said that it was clear from voluminous documents that General Singh’s date of birth as May 10, 1951, but the question was that in primary documents it was May, 10 1950 and it would be taken as a final date for service matters.
Well, the matter has finally been resolved with the General taking plea back and also it should give a lesson to the Indian Military to crosscheck documents to avoid confusions leading to legal battle and world-level mockery!
West Bengal Chief Minister , Mamata Banerjee is all set to grab the name of Blue City for Kolkata . Almost everything would turn blue, the roads , the flyovers, the trees and the cabs which were traditionally yellow! The popular Writer’s Building which cannot be changed from Red is covered by Glowing Blue Light all around it, at night. The initiative does not stop here, the Kolkata Municipal Corporation plans to give tax benefits for those who paint their homes blue!
Well, uniformity of a particular colour , spread over a large area surely amazes the eyes and hopefully with the new Chief Minister Kolkata and West Bengal not only starts looking beautiful from outside but from inside as well with chances for industries to flourish once again, in Ex-Capital of the nation(under the British Regime)!
The Funny Winning Run Scored by India!
India registers its first win in the Commonwealth Tri-Series against Sri Lanka. In the 46th over , bowled by Mathews of Sri Lanka Ashwin hit the winning shot which was ideally going to make him lose his wicket as it was high up in the air, very close to the pitch, towards the off-sdie and had at least two Sri Lankan players beneath it . It was considerably a very easy high-catch for any player. However, there was a twist in the tale as both took similar decision. Malinga decided to leave the ball for Tharanga and vice versa and the ball fell in between while Ashwin and Jadeja completed the winning run. Ashwin could not believe the rescue like everyone watching the match and had a astonished smile on his face. Well, rarely do we get to see these childish follies in International matches. All in all, it was a happy and funny climax of the match for Indian Cricket fans.
Kamla Pasand labelled boundary ropes may attract a fine of upto $66000 on Cricket Australia by the Australian Federal Health Department. The advertisment of “Chaini” which is fancy-packed spit(tobacco) were visible in almost all the matches. The advertisment is a breach of 1992 Tobacco Advertising Ban Law. Kamla Pasand being a company which is also into manufacturing of chewing-tobacco hence legally the adverts should not have been entertained by Cricket Australia.
As per reports these ads were removed in the first test match between India and Australia following complaints about the ad against the 1992 tobacco advertising ban law. But they were back after the Indian High Commission reportedly assured the cricket board that the product was mouth-wash.
The most shocking part is when asked by Cricket Australia the ad was allegedly translated in English as “Kamla likes fragrant Chaini mouth freshener”.
Well, Law breakers and manupulators find their ways out in the country , some way or the other but this time the limit was extended to a foreign country and at the end it is Cricket Australia which is likely to suffer by paying the penalty fee.
