a survey assistant with National Hydroelectric Power Corporation, Ajeesh was discharged a few days ago,the Bombay High Court said that ?if such withdrawal of consents is allowed it will encourage some of the members of societies to use it as a weapon to blackmail the developers. The court also said that object of redevelopment of old and dilapidated buildings will never be achieved with withdrawal of consents Justice S J Kathawala made these observations while dismissing a petition filed by 19 members of Kher Nagar Ganeshkrupa Cooperative Housing Society in Bandra Eastwho had challenged an order passed by Executive Engineer of Mumbai Housing and Area Development Boardgiving 48 hours to the petitioner tenants to leave the tenementsfailing which they would be evicted under Section 95A of the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Act The petition has been moved by 19 out of 54 members of the housing society holding In 2003the members of the society had decided to redevelop its property during which time 45 out of 54 members including 10 of the petitioners gave their consent in support of the redevelopment project taking the percentage of consent to 83 The required permissions were sought from different authorities and in 200734 members of the society vacated their tenements and shifted to the temporary alternative accommodation Howeverthe petitioners who had started opposing the project since 2004 refused to vacate their tenements The

empowered to invoke the provisions of summary eviction The court accepted the submission made by Mattos and held that the housing board had power to evict the tenants As for the consent terms the court pointed out that 83 percent of the members had granted their consent The petitioners who have withdrawn their consent have not challenged the resolution for redevelopment passed by the society

undertaking that they will not create any third party interests For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Leher Kala | Updated: November 13 2017 9:49 am This misplaced expectation of entitlement – and a total disregard for the rules – is uniquely Indian (Representational image/Files) Top News The last couple of months have been a public relations nightmare for Indigo Airlines ever since a Bollywood singer’s 30-year-old son shouted at the staff in an airport in Chhattisgarh “Let me reach Mumbai If I don’t strip you my name is not Aditya Narayan” he screamed hysterically on camera wrongly assuming anybody knew who Aditya Narayan is The provocation: Indigo was charging him Rs 13000 for 40 kg excess baggage Later badminton superstar PV Sindhu who carries much more heft tweeted that she had a terrible experience with Indigo on a flight to Mumbai The airline said Sindhu had boarded a flight to Mumbai last carrying hand baggage that didn’t fit in the overhead storage space and they had to move it to cargo last minute But the final nail in Indigo’s proverbial coffin is the video of their ground staff manhandling a passenger who had disembarked at the Delhi airport After it became prime time news on TV Indigo apologised and has taken action against the staff The power of the footage which has since gone viral is indeed shocking and on the face of it paints Indigo in a dismal light A greying bespectacled entirely sane-looking gentleman pushed to a scorching floor held down by a second staffer in a stiff grip The later part of the video almost brutal completely obscures the fact that before the scuffle began the passenger’s tone was all wrong contemptuous and abusive for being made to wait for the bus Post 9/11 and more recently the attack at the Brussels airport personnel working in high security areas are trained to keep a watchful eye on their surroundings They have to strictly follow protocol and react keeping passenger safety as top priority That means de-escalating a conflict and not responding aggressively to an obnoxious passenger — but acting swiftly if things are getting out of hand In this case the Indigo staff maybe could have shown more restraint However one has to wonder if the Indian traveller has simply not evolved to keep up with airport etiquette in a post-terrorism world What appears to be odd regarding this particular passenger’s behaviour is that the unwritten and unspoken rule is in this environment the airport nobody can challenge the authority of their staff Period Which he disregarded completely It does not give them leeway to assault you but in the interests of other passengers they have to be allowed to do whatever it is they’re trained to do when there’s a fight It’s a tough one for Indians to wrap their heads around Speak to any staffer at the airport they’ll tell you passengers behave like the pilot is their personal driver and support staff similar to coolies at a railway station For example there is one scene that plays out regularly at the check-in counters of all airlines People arguing and pleading to carry more weight than the permitted allowance – for free It’s spelt out loud and clear on the ticket and on the website what the allowance is Yet at the time of check-in bags are being opened weight redistributed between cargo and hand while passengers continue with their accusatory mutterings on the intransigence of the airline staff This misplaced expectation of entitlement—and a total disregard for the rules— is uniquely Indian Like the hotel industry air travel professionals have largely gone by the motto that the customer is always right But spare a thought somebody for the all-too human 20-somethings who work 12-hour shifts patiently listening to irate travellers all day They have the highly stressful task of trying to get thousands of people to follow the rules The horrific incident when a Shiv Sena MP attacked an Air India employee recently highlighted the vulnerability of staff by bullying VIP’s and the hostility they face The Ministry of Civil Aviation has since declared three levels of severity of unruly behaviour the worst being that you may be put permanently on a no-fly list No airline is perfect No passenger is either It’s only following the rules that can prevent such unnecessary and

Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Varun Grover | New Delhi | Published: July 19 2015 1:00 am A still from Masaan Top News I was in Class 10th in Lucknow then — the year you are treated as the underdog inside the boxing ring — when I first quoted Dushyant Kumar in a Hindi essay in the exam paper The topic was “Mere Sapno ka Bharat” and I ended it with a hopeful Kaun kehta hai ki aasmaan mein suraakh ho nahin sakta ek pathhar toh tabiyat se uchhaalo yaaron Who says the sky is impenetrable Try throwing a stone at it with conviction Like almost anyone who went to school in UP/Bihar/Rajasthan in the 1980s and ’90s I must have also discovered Kumar in debate competitions Born in Bijnore UP in 1933 Kumar studied in Allahabad University But most of his literary life was spent in Bhopal where he was employed by All India Radio as a scriptwrite While he wrote novels poetry and short stories to great acclaim in the early years Kumar is most remembered for bringing the Hindi ghazal to the fore with his celebrated collection Saaye Mein Dhoop A stamp that was released in 2009 to commemorate Dushyant Kumar In school it was a tradition to start or end the debates with a taali-maar line of Hindi or Urdu poetry and Kumar seemed to have a monopoly there A defeatist argument would end with: Kahaan toh tayy tha chiragaan har ek ghar ke liye kahaan charaag mayassar nahin shahar ke liye They had promised a lamp each for every household While we can’t find even one for the entire city And an aggressive revolutionary topic would conclude by proclaiming: Ho gayi hai peer parvat si pighalni chaahiye iss Himalaya se koi Ganga niklani chaahiye The pain has mounted beyond bearing must melt now The Himalayas should part and Ganga must flow now I discovered Kumar again in college at Banaras Hindu University when I stumbled upon his subtle jab at Indira Gandhi’s dictatorial ways: “Mat kaho aakaash mein kohra ghana hai yeh kisi ki vyaktigat aalochana hai” At the time no one else was writing political ghazals that too in the language of the masses It was then that I first picked up his most famous collection of poems Saaye Mein Dhoop from the railway station bookstall It’s this quality that brought him unparalleled reach and leads Nida Fazli to compare Kumar to Kabir and Sant Tukaram In the mid-1970s as the disillusionment with the establishment set in Kumar’s ghazals much like Amitabh Bachchan’s angry young man document an artiste’s protest In the following years of unlimited discoveries and explorations I lost touch with the poet but found him again at a friend’s wedding in Lucknow where during the family gathering everybody began reading their favourite poetry My friend’s father read out Kumar’s ghazal “Main jise oadhta-bichhata hoon” which has the sher “Tu kisi rail si guzarti hai” Since then this ghazal and especially this particular couplet has stayed with me The simile of a girl crossing like a train and her lover shivering like a bridge is so unique that it took my breath away On the face of it it’s a very unromantic metaphor — the mechanical train and an iron bridge But on second thought it’s way lovelier than the usual flower-and-bee or chanda-chakor (chakor is a hen-like bird that keeps looking at the moon all night) metaphors used frequently in Hindi poetry The routine-bound but momentary pact and the physical (as well as following the laws of physics) relationship between a train and the bridge are sensual delicate and rooted in the imagery of the India we grew up in When director Neeraj Ghaywan and I began brainstorming about what kind of music we would want for Masaan we headed straight for Hindi literary poetry The character of Shaalu (Shweta Tripathi) in the film is a lover of poetry and well-versed with the works of all the greats — Mirza Ghalib Bashir Badr Nida Fazli and Akbar Allahabadi among others We first started with a poem by the great contemporary Hindi writer Uday Prakash but it was in mukt chhand (free verse) and hence nearly impossible to be composed as a song After reading the works of Bashir Badr Faiz and Fazli saab these lines from Kumar suddenly came back to me and in that instant I knew we had our song Or at least the mukhda of it The decision (risk) to take these lines as the foundation of the song and write new lines for the rest was mine The challenge was to retain the simplicity earthiness and the quality of similes as high as the original Hence kaath ke taaley chaabiyaan paani ka bulbula etc made their way into the song I can only hope that I have not defaced or undermined a great work by a legendary poet in the process And if by this attempt a few more people discover the Prince of Hindi Ghazal team Masaan will consider that a bonus Kumar died much before his time at age 42 in 1975 I end this piece with one more Kumar couplet that seems to fit a lot of mainstream film music today: Kaise manzar saamne aane lagey hain Gaate gaate log chillaane lage hain

prevention after a heart attack says study (Source: Thinkstock Images) Top News Low socio-economic status can increase the chances of getting a second heart attack or stroke according to new research The study published in the journal European Society of Cardiology found that the risk of a second attack was 36 per cent lower for those in the highest income quintile than those with the lowest The chances increase by 14 per cent among divorced patients than among married “Rich or poor married or divorced might affect your risk of a second heart attack or stroke Advances in prevention and acute treatment have increased survival chances after heart attack and stroke over the past several decades” said Joel Ohm physician at the Karolinska University Hospital Sweden The study investigated the link between socioeconomic status in patients who had survived their first heart attack and have the risk of a second attack or stroke The study included 29953 patients who had been discharged approximately one year previously from cardiac intensive care unit after treatment for a first myocardial infarction During an average follow up of four years 2405 patients (8 per cent) suffered a heart attack or stroke After factoring age gender smoking preference and the defined measures of socioeconomic status the study found that divorce was associated with a 14 per cent greater risk of a second attack than the marriage There is an independent and linear relationship between income and the risk of a second event Those with highest quintile of income had 36 per cent lower risk of suffering from heart attack for the second time than those in the lowest quintile A higher level of education was associated with a lower risk of events but the association was not significant after adjustment for income “Our study shows that in the years following a first myocardial infarction men and women with low socioeconomic status have a higher risk of suffering another heart attack or stroke This is a new finding and suggests that socioeconomic status should be included in risk assessment for secondary prevention after a heart attack” Ohm added Even though health care providers are unlikely to keep track of their patients’ yearly salary simple questions about other socioeconomic variables such as marital status and educational level could make a difference the study suggested
