All eyes on Geeta-Marwa and Sandeep-Amit bouts as Haryana Hammers to lock horns with UP Dangal on Wednesday 

After a solid start to the season, reigning defending champions Mumbai Maharathis in the inaugural match, the Haryana Hammers are upbeat for their next encounter against UP Dangal in the second season of Patanjali Powervita Pro Wrestling League (PWL) on Wednesday.

It won’t be an easy affair for them, as the star-studded UP team includes Commonwealth gold medallist Geeta Phogat, Babita Kumari, Maria Mamashuk and marquee player Elitsa Yankova along with Amit Dahiya. 

The star encounters of the night will be the fights between Geeta and Marwa Amri, along with Sandeep Tomar and Amit Dahiya.

On the other hand, Babita will be eager to repeat her performance same as in season-1, where she outshone World No 3 Ukraine grappler Tatyana Kit, who was representing Haryana then.

After the release of Bollywood film – Dangal, all eyes are set on Geeta and Babita and they are expected to prove that they still have the same energy and aggression, which was portrayed in the film. 

Marwa Amri is in good form after beating Sarita in the first bout, and it will be a close battle when she will take on Geeta on the mat. The way Geeta had brought down World champion Oksana Herhel of Ukraine in the previous season, nothing is impossible for the Dhaakad girl.

Haryana squad will also have Kiran (75kg), Indu Choudhary (48kg) and Sumit (74kg) take the mat but it all depends on the result between Andrey Kviatkovski and Rajneesh in men’s 65kg weight category.

“Elitsa is world renowned player and has acclaimed various accolades, whereas we have a huge respect and feel proud for what Geeta has done till now. But having them both makes our team more balanced now,” said  Sunny Katyal, UP Dangal team.

Rio Olympics medallist Elitsa Yankova (48kg) and World championship silver medallist Abdusalam Gadisov are marquee players for UP and Haryana respectively.

Highlights of 2016 : Give way to digitalization!
Germany is well-known for it’s pioneering role in the field of technology. What’s new is that it’s looking to use it’s technological resources and ability to revolutionize the field of education. The education minister of Germany Johanna Wanka wants to strengthen the role of technology in education and invest 5 billion euro in this particular field. Furthermore publishing biggies like Cornelesen and Brockhaus have also acknowledged the change in trends and are directing their resources towards creating digital content to make children learn better.
The German Law on fixed book which came to power on 11.September,2016, will also regulate the prices of E-books ( excluding the self-publishing titles).E-books from major publishing houses are available on Skoobe (E-books spelled backwards!) on a flat rate (Pay a flat rate and enjoy limitless access to E-books for the entire month. How cool is that!) . To add to the excitement, epub extension developers IDPF (International Digital Publishing Forum) and the World Wide Web Consortium are coming together to merge the web technology and the E-book technology.
Although some remain sceptic towards the digitalization of education, claiming that nothing can replace the traditional methods of learning like the classic teacher-student dynamic and learning through paperback books (after all the computer has no IQ) but the publishing houses are busy adapting the new methods and techniques in writing. With Amazon and Tolino-Allianz leading the way, Aldi recently included an E-book catalogue in its online services.
All said and done one cannot completely do away with printed books. Even with introduction of virtual reality, e-books, smartboards etc. , the sale of printed books is holding its court. Well, the present seems sorted….let’s see what the future brings!

With Prime Minister laying great emphasis on adoption of digital payments in the Country, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has suggested the Government to constitute a Digital Payments Promotion Board comprising of senior government officials, representatives of different verticals of non corporate sector including trading community and payment technology providers, Banks & other financial institutions to intensify steps to encourage more and more people to adopt digital payments and to monitor digital payment landscape in the Country. Currently various organs of the Government are promoting digital payments in one way or the other. However, a comprehensive policy for promotion of digital payments is need of the hour and as such the proposed Board can act as a catalyst in ensuring faster adoption of electronic payments in the Country-said the CAIT.
Meanwhile, the CAIT has hailed announcements made by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi providing relaxations in banking facilities for small traders and small industry and said that it shall promote easy lending by banks and will certainly bring informal economy to formal economy to a large extent-said the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT). The initiative of Prime Minister would encourage small traders to borrow money through banking channels and would also encourage acceptance of payment through digital mode of payment. CAIT opined that PMs announcements has set tone of the Union Budget to be presented next month.
CAIT National President Mr B.C.Bhartia & Secretary General Mr. Praveen Khandelwal said that collateral security is one of the major deterrent for small merchants in availing funds from banks & financial institutions. The Credit Guarantee Corporation is used to guarantee loans to traders upto Rs 1 crore. Now, the Prime Minister has announced to increase this guarantee  limit to Rs 2 crore which means that now smalll borrowers will not be required to give collateral security for credit limits upto Rs 2 crore. This will make small traders eligible for availing credit from banks. Huge cash will come as working capital in retail market. However, it is a fact that Banks are reluctant in advancing loans to small businesses for unknown reasons which is the major cause for low level lending by banks to non corporate sector. Therefore, the CAIT has demanded that Reserve Bank of India should check all the loans given to small traders to verify whether banks have taken collateral security from them or not. It has further demanded that RBI should also conduct audit of all such loan applications to ensure that PM’s initiative is implemented in letter and spirit.
Both Mr. Bhartia & Mr. Khandelwal also said that the banks used to give cash credit limit for financing working capital upto 20% of turnover. Now PM has announced increase in this limit to 25% of turn over. This will directly help in increase in working capital of small traders. Now they will be in better position to serve their customers by keeping sufficient stock and variety of range. It would also encourage small traders to show maximum turnover in Books of Account through banking channel.
The CAIT has also called for review of the working of MUDRA loans since large number of small traders for whom MUDRA was launched are unable to obtain Mudra loans despite all attempts and are being turned down by Banks on one pretest or the other. They have urged the Government to make MUDRA as an independent regulator and Non Banking Finance Companies, Micro Finance Institutions, Trust & Societies should be linked with MUDRA scheme and Banks should be directed to re-finance to such entities instead of awarding loans directly to the borrowers.

VHP hails SC ruling on politics on caste, creed, language, region or religion

          New Delhi. January 02, 2017. Vishwa Hindu Parishad welcomed the Supreme Court’s ruling today barring political parties and candidates from seeking votes in the name of religion, caste, community, race or language. The International Joint General Secretary Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Dr. Surendra Jain said that the politics based on caste, community and religion has harmed the country a lot. Welcoming the decision of the Supreme Court he also said that national integration has also been damaged by this practice. “Vote bank politics would be curbed by this decision & the judgement will prove to be a landmark in nation-building,” he added.
            Now it is the duty of the Commission of Bharat to get it implemented in its letter & spirit.  We appeal to the election Commission to de-recognize the political parties and debar the candidates who violates any provision of this verdict.         
The apex court on Monday said that seeking votes on the basis of caste, community, religion or language is illegal. A constitution bench headed by Chief Justice T.S. Thakur by a 4:3 majority passed the order on the basis of Section 123(3) of the Representation of People’s Act.
