She began her back nine with a bogey on the 10thhole that erased her advantage but two more birdies on the 15th and 17thholes helped her to regain the initiative. She could have ended with a better score but for a bogey on the 18th. Her tally of five birdies was the maximum by any player on the day.

She played cautiously in her front nine, dropping just two shots on the 3rdand 4th holes while carding a birdie on the 5th. She made no further mistakes during the course of the day and played an even par back nine. Ankita won her maiden title in Srinagar last year and she will be eager to make the most of a good start by claiming the final event of the year.
Pune’s Shweta Galande carded 3 over 74 to take the third position after the first round. She began with bogies on the 3rd, 5th and 7thholes, but two consecutive birdies on the 8th and 9th holes helped her to repair the damage. She could not keep the momentum going in her back nine, dropping shots on the 10th, 13th and 14th holes as against a lone birdie on the 15th.
Kolkata’s Smriti Mehra, Jaipur’s Afshan Fatima and Panchkula’s Amandeep Drall returned with identical scores of 4 over 75, to be placed tied fourth after 18 holes.

Amandeep Drall played a birdie-less round with four bogies on the 1st, 2nd,3rd and 7th holes.

FAME India Eco Drive Rally – Campaign to Promote Green Electric Mobility in India
Campaign intended to spread a global message around India’s earnest efforts towards climate change: Mr Sohinder Gill, Director- Corporate Affairs, SMEV
New Delhi, November 25, 2015: In an effort to promote green mobility through increased use of hybrid and electric vehicles, Department of Heavy industry, Govt of India is organizing a week long campaign named ‘Fame India Eco Drive’. The ambitious campaign would be a “3 city” promotional event at Delhi, Jaipur and Chandigarh, wherein, rallies and exhibitions of hybrid and electric vehicles would be organised on November 26, November 30 and December 7, 2015 respectively. This campaign would be supported by Society of Manufacturers of Electric Vehicles (SMEV).
The initiative is being planned as a prelude to the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP21 or CMP 11 scheduled in Paris from November 30, 2015 -December 11, 2015.
The Delhi drive will be flagged off by Shri Anant Geete, Minister of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises, Govt of India from Red Fort at 9:00 AM which will continue through the in-roads of Delhi while touching major points, and terminate at MDI Gurgaon.
A wide range of state-of-the-art Hybrid & Electric vehicles including 2-wheelers, cars and buses would cover a distance of 40 KM, travelling from Red Fort to Gurgaon.
“We are proud to be associated with the FAME Eco-Drive Rally, as it is aligned to our mission of curbing one of the major environmental threats that our country is facing today – pollution. It is alarming that our country is ranked at the bottom among the 132 countries in the recent Environmental Performance Index report, and is home to 13 of the 20 most polluted cities in the world. But we strongly believe that by adopting e-vehicles, we can substantially reduce a significant amount of greenhouse gases that are hazardous to health. This will go a long way in mitigating climate change,” said Mr Sohinder Gill, Director- corporate Affairs, SMEV.
“The rally is aimed at creating awareness and buzz among citizens about the benefits and utility of electric vehicles as well as spreading message around the world about India’s serious intent towards climate change,” added Mr. Gill.
Mr. Gill also pointed out that “The increased sales of EVs over the last six months are a testimony of how our citizens are becoming more sensitive towards the environment. We are certain that the numbers will grow by 200% by the end of 2016. We truly appreciate the Central government’s step towards Electric Mobility and will continue to support their mission of bringing 7 million e-vehicles on road by 2020.”
FAME is short for ‘Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles in India’, which is part of the ambitious National Electric Mobility Mission Plan launched by GoI this April. To spread awareness about this important initiative, the Department of Heavy Industries has been undertaking IEC(Information, Education and Communication) public campaigns including th


INDIA, November 2015

Winter in Badrutt’s Palace Hotel is going to be a hot one with a palette of fascinating, high class events. While the successful British label Hed Kandi gets the ›King’s Club‹ dance floor vibrating to the their famous Deep House sound, stars such as Umberto Tozzi, Dita von Teese and Ornella Vanoni guarantee a night to remember during »In Concert@Badrutt’s Palace«. The annual charity »Christmas Tree Auction« promises magic and sparkle with its creatively decorated Christmas trees and the legendary »Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz« and »White Turf« events provide racy fun and thrilling entertainment on snow and ice.

Badrutt’s Palace Hotel opens its doors to guests this winter from 6th December 2015 to 27th March 2016.
This year the legendary ›King’s Club‹ is supported by the famous »Glitz and Glamour Label« Hed Kandi. The British remixer has been responsible for no end of top hits over the past 15 years, bringing us long party nights with their inimitable house vibes from the beaches of Ibiza to the St. Moritz Alps. A winter season of first rate music kicks off with the great opening party on 6th December 2015 in ‹King’s Club› together with Hed Kandi. Every weekend the new resident DJs provide a unique club sound, the likes of which have never been heard before in St. Moritz. On special occasions such as »Russian Christmas« or »Chinese New Year« ›King’s Club‹ guests can party with Hed Kandi to a musical experience and atmosphere created especially for the occasion.
The annual charity »Christmas Tree Auction«, already in its 17th year, takes place on 22nd December 2015 in Badrutt’s Palace Hotel. Numerous well known luxury brands such as Gübelin or Bulgari have taken part every year as sponsors of the event and support this traditional hotel with a donation of festively decorated Christmas trees whose creativity knows no bounds. The trees are auctioned off during the gala dinner in the ›Embassy Ballroom‹ by an official auctioneer from Christie’s London. All donations are divided equally between the local charitable organisations Avegnir, Ufficina, Kinderkrippe Engadin and the Blind Ski School of St. Moritz.
Umberto Tozzi and Ornella Vanoni, top Italian pop musicians are guest performers at this year’s series of successful music concerts, »In Concert@Badrutt’s Palace«. Dita von Teese, the world famous burlesque artist rounds off the stage performances with high class erotica.
On Monday 4th January 2016 Umberto Tozzi’s soft voice fills the hall in the ›Embassy Ballroom‹. The now 63 year old singer achieved fame in the 70s with his greatest hits »Ti amo«, »Tu« and »Gloria«. The rather shy musician performs a wide repertoire of songs at his concerts, ranging from sentimental ballads through catchy Italian pop songs to upbeat rock numbers. The focus is always his sensitive voice which animates millions to sing along and thrills people of all generations.
The second instalment of »In Concert@Badrutt’s Palace« on Tuesday 8th March 2016, with Dita von Teese and Ornella Vanoni, offers the very best in sensual entertainment. Dita von Teese, who is barely known by anybody by her name at birth Heather Renée Sweet, gives a convincing performance with her exceptional style and artistic perfection. The image of the scantily clad star sprawled provocatively in an overflowing champagne glass has reached cult status. The exceptional star is supported by Italian singer Ornella Vanoni, who monopolises the stage with her impressive voice. The now 82 year old musician’s rise to fame began in the 60s when she took part in various music festivals and gained success with hits such as »Io ti darò di più«, »Un’ora sola ti vorrei« and »L’appuntamento«. The two artists not only share a unique stage presence but also turning their passion into their profession and that they both used the famous men’s magazine »Playboy« as a spring board for their career.
From show biz stars and starlets to the classic historical sounds of the »Musikfestival Badrutt’s Palace«. The »Sinfonia Amadei« orchestra led by conductor Lukas Reinitzer is once again invited to play at the St. Moritz grand hotel from 22nd to 24th January 2016. In winter 2016 the musicians are focussing on Beethoven’s famous symphonies, just as in the concert series last winter. What makes it stand out is that the orchestra play all the pieces authentically and with great passion on historical 18th century instruments. For three evenings, an absolutely top musical treat awaits local residents as well as guests of Badrutt’s Palace Hotel.
No sooner have the first snowflakes fallen in St. Moritz and the lake has started to freeze, than preparations begin for the event highlights »Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz« and »White Turf«. Guests have watched how the trained polo players and their ponies battle it out with a red ball for the winning trophy every winter since 1985. Badrutt’s Palace Hotel is once again sponsoring the beloved winter sport event as well as participating in the tournament with its own team from 29th to 31stJanuary 2016.
The excitement races on at a fast pace on the following three Sundays with »White Turf«, the thrilling horse races on the frozen lake. Since last year, the series of races kicks off with the spectacular »Night Turf«, a floodlit race by night. Each day of the event Badrutt’s Palace Hotel welcomes its guests and visitors to its own hospitality tent, offering first class service and winter specialities right next to the polo ground and racetrack.
As a fine finale to the season, Badrutt’s Palace Hotel presents »Music Summit St. Moritz«, together with various other locations. The best known DJs of the electronic dancefloor scene play in the lofty heights of St. Moritz alpine huts again by day and in the legendary ›King’s Club‹ by night from 16th to 20th March 2016. Visitors can look forward to the very special guest appearance every night of a successful star DJ and to celebrating the grand finale on 20th March with Hed Kandi in ›King’s Club‹.
