Sanjay Kumar posts super 65 on final day to register impressive five-shot victory


Mukesh Kumar finishes runner-up

Shillong, Meghalaya, November 15, 2014: Lucknow golfer Sanjay Kumar came up with an outstanding final round score of five-under-65 to register a comprehensive five-shot win at the Rs. 40 lakh Chief Minister’s Meghalaya Open Golf 2014. Sanjay ended the week with a total score of 16-under-264 at the richest tournament to be staged in North-East India. Mukesh Kumar of Mhow, Madhya Pradesh, finished a distant second at 11-under-269 after returning a 67 in round four.

Sanjay Kumar (66-66-67-65), who started the final day two shots ahead, was in control of the situation from start to finish. The 43-year-old had a quiet front-nine, sinking a lone birdie on the fourth. However, Sanjay gathered steam on the back-nine as he delivered four birdies including three on the trot from the 13th to the 15th. The seasoned professional who is known for his cool temperament landed it within four feet on the 13thand 14th and sank his longest putt of the day, a 15-footer, on the 15th. Sanjay thus ended up with the day’s joint best score of 65.

Sanjay, who bagged his seventh professional title and first on the PGTI in three years, said, “I’ve waited a long time for this win. I feel I’m back at the top of my game now. I’ve had a fantastic week and particularly enjoyed the weather conditions and course conditions here. I’d love to come back to the Shillong Golf Course for more professional events in the future.”

He added, “Even though I had a relatively quieter front-nine, I played some solid golf to not drop a stroke at any stage. I made a good par save on the eighth. When I birdied the 13th I knew I’m not too far from victory. It was important to have a good cushion at the top especially with the experienced Mukesh right behind me. I ensured I didn’t lose focus despite missing a few short putts early on. I dedicate this win to my family.”

Sanjay has now climbed from 15th place to sixth position in the 2014 Rolex Rankings.

Mukesh Kumar (64-72-66-67), another seasoned campaigner, who started the final round three shots off the lead in third place, carded a 67 on the last day to finish runner-up. Mukesh had five birdies and two bogeys on Saturday and missed two crucial eagle opportunities from 10 feet on the sixth and 10th. On the sixth he ended up with a birdie but on the 10th he three-putted for par. He had some consolation at the end, closing the day with a 15-feet birdie conversion on the 18th.

Mukesh, who climbed from 12th to ninth in the Rolex Rankings, said, “I just didn’t convert enough opportunities today. Sanjay is a player difficult to dislodge when he’s leading and therefore I needed to make a charge in the final round. However, the two missed eagle opportunities cost me dearly. I’ve really enjoyed playing and Shillong and look forward to coming back here every year.”

Kolkata’s Shankar Das submitted a card of four-under-66 in round four to finish third at 10-under-270. Shankar continues in second position on the Rolex Rankings but has now narrowed the gap between himself and the leader Rashid Khan to less than two lakh rupees.

Om Prakash Chouhan of Mhow and Sri Lankan K Prabagaran were joint fourth at eight-under-272.


All Corruption No Governance Railways, German, LPG, Drugs, FCI

November15, 2014 (C) Ravinder Singh
Close on heals scores of deaths for nth time Chhattisgarh due to
Infections in Hospitals, Spurious Drugs, Un-sterilized Surgical
Instruments, Simple Greed leading to all Vasectomy Operations had not
made the state government vigilant enough to take preventive action,
in the latest case Drug Supplier Simply had no Drug Manufacturing
Facility but was getting state government orders on regular basis – it
is reported that –.
Indian Railways had preferred to Place ORDER on Private Companies who
neither Has Design or Testing or Manufacturing Facility and Experience
worth Rs. Thousands of Crores. This perhaps led to Shunting of Railway
Minister to lesser important department.
But what is common in both is that Rail Coach Factories are located in
Non BJP states Punjab and Tamil Nadu so BJP missing out on GDP growth
and profits.
I had for five years wanted GoI to import 20,000 Double Decker Coaches
to replace standard Coaches Under Some Long Term Foreign Aid.
Indian Railways have Ready Design of Double Decker Coaches just want
ORDERS, and in such situation placing Orders on Private Companies is
most unfortunate.
It was Most Unfortunate that Education Minister of India Cut the
German Language course taken by 80,000 Kendriya Vidyalayas School
Children under Foreign Aid and Forcing them to take Sanskrit instead.
It is alright if some States where Sanskrit is spoken by people it
should be recognized as third language after Hindi and English but
applying to Kendriya Vidyalayas spread all over India is most stupid.
LPG subsidy distribution through Cash Transfer is MISCHIEF of Sam
Pitroda who wanted to introduce Mobile Phones based Cash Transfer
system and wanted to engage his Company.
I was procuring Various Gases for a Power Station in 1975 – each
Cylinder Had a Number – these days BAR CODE is applicable for sale of
most Consumer Goods could have been applied to LPG Cylinder Marketing
easily. This is ACCURATE & RELIABLE way to Distribute & Take Back LPG
Cylinders. Cash Transfer doesn’t Curb PILFERAGE & DIVERSION Of LPG for
Commercial Use.
FCI instead of Silos built Brick Rooms to store Grains in Bags, which
is most inefficient and unsafe storing of foods and totally manual in
loading and unloading.
Farmers Storing Processing & Marketing of Foods would reduce Wastes
and Ensure FRESH grade supply of foods.

‘Rethinking the Nehru Legacy: The Long Twentieth Century’

Nehru Memorial Museum and Library
cordially invites you to a Conference
at 9.00 am on Monday-Tuesday, 17-18 November, 2014
in the Seminar Room, First Floor, Library Building
‘Rethinking the Nehru Legacy:
The Long Twentieth Century’

Our commemoration takes the form of a reflection on Nehru and his world. His universe obviously included India, but it embraced all of humanity. As he shaped India in so many different ways over more than five decades, he was aware, more than most of his generation, that it was an India in the world, not an India locked into itself. He ceaselessly reflected upon how this particular was related to an universal and how they shaped each other. Perhaps India itself provided a model of it, of how the immense multiplicity within India could constitute the larger entity, which he summed up in the formula, “unity in diversity.” To this end, the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library is hosting a series of three events, each with a distinct focus and thematic coherence.  This conference will be the third of the event in the series.  This would not be specific to India, although India would obviously not be excluded. It will be a reflection on the entire century, from 1914 to 1991 if dates have to be given, and the legacy into the twenty-first century. It should not be specific to Nehru either. It should be conceived as an examination of the universes he occupied and from which he drew so much sustenance, without constantly relating it to Nehru’s thought and action. It would embrace all the big questions of the day, which engaged Nehru’s attention, as it did that of everyone else who reflected on the human condition. The principal themes would be the usual ones of democracy and nationalism, war and barbarism, science and religion, the division and the integration of the world, and finally on utopia and dystopia. It should be left to scholars to range freely on subjects of their choice with the one constraint, that they should not limit themselves to one small issue. As a tribute to Nehru it should be large and grand in vision and accomplishment.  All are open events and aim to provide a platform for original and creative scholars to share their approaches with us.

G20 summit: Repatriation of black money kept abroad is a priority, PM Modi

The black money kept abroad is not only headache for India but it is global problem,developing nations where the rule of one party or one man exits the problem takes national dimensions and the peace of the country gets jeopardized. An international awareness to quell this this political epidemic would make the nation be govern in right earnestness. Rich becomes richer and poor tends to be more poor. Modi has taken bold initiative to fight this evil from the apex level.Thus Prime Minister Narendra Modi at G 20 summit on Saturday unequivocally said that repatriation of black money kept abroad is a “priority” for his government, as he sought close global coordination to achieve this objective.
Raising the black money issue at an informal meeting of leaders of the five-nation BRICS bloc, Modi set the tone on this key issue ahead of the G20 summit in the wake of his commitment to bring back every penny of black money stashed abroad.
“Repatriation of black money kept abroad is a key priority for us,” Modi told the BRICS leaders.
Calling for close coordination on the issue of black money kept abroad, Modi also said this unaccounted money is also linked to security challenges. As India makes attempts to retrieve the black money, the Prime Minister has already made it clear that close cooperation to retrieve the black money from abroad is a key issue for him.
 G20 host Australia on Friday vowed a “very aggressive” crackdown on tax avoidance. India is also seeking strong action by the G20 industrialized and emerging economies against tax havens. “A key issue for me would be to highlight the importance of international cooperation against black money,” Modi had said, as he is set to renew the country’s commitment at the G20 summit to a global response to deal with cross border tax avoidance and evasion.
India is also expected to urge the G20 to pressure tax havens into revealing more information on black money from India to help retrieve this illegal money.reports PTI
