MUMBAI, 15th 2019: The philanthropy pillar of the Tata Mumbai Marathon, promoted by Procam International, is the biggest philanthropic sporting platform in the country. The event has gone beyond running to bring people together – over and above politics, religion, race, colour, and gender. This includes not only runners but also spectators, volunteers, state and civic authorities, sponsors, fundraisers and all who experience and touch the event in different ways. The Tata Mumbai Marathon inspires people to ‘Be Better’ and the philanthropic pillar is a befitting example of this ethos.

The event has successfully forged a bond with civil society; empowering runners to power their runs by supporting various causes as well as enabling those who are not running, to participate via fundraising.

As the philanthropy partner of the Tata Mumbai Marathon, United Way Mumbai enables NGOs to raise funds for their projects through the event.

From a cumulative total of Rs 1.4 crores through 12 NGOs in the inaugural edition of the event, philanthropy at the event has made great strides. In this journey, there have been some extraordinary individuals who have raised phenomenal amounts; in the 2017 and 2018 editions two individuals, Mihir Doshi and Sankara Raman had raised Rs 1.3 crores and Rs 1.32 crores respectively, both shattering records in the individual fundraising category. This year, two fundraisers, Sankara Raman and Sanjeev Shah have already raised Rs 1.01 crores and Rs 1 crores respectively.
Jayanti Shukla, CEO, United Way Mumbai said: “With individuals breaking the 1-crore mark, we introduced the Change Legend title this year. Along with some distinct privileges, these remarkable individuals who raise over a crore, will always be recognized as Change Legends and will forever be a part of the Mumbai Marathon.”

On this occasion, Vivek Singh, Joint MD, Procam International said, “One of the most important aspects of the Tata Mumbai Marathon has been the immense positive response from all sections of society to the event’s unique charity platform.

Integrated Reporting – Financial, Technical, Sustainability
January16, 2019 (C) Ravinder Singh

Objective of the Integrated Reporting Standards Prescribed by SEBI for Corporates is to create Transparent Functioning, Level Operating Conditions, Healthy Competition and Sharing of Knowledge with objectives of making Indian Companies Globally Competitive, Create Intellectual Property mainly ‘Patents’ – Sustainable Development, Clean Environment and Economic Prosperity for Shareholders, Workers, Investors and People.

Yesterday TOI reported India to have $46.3Trillion economy by 2030 compared to $31 Trillion for USA. India depends almost entirely on Fortune-IN 500 Companies holding $4000b assets for Economic Prosperity for 1300m-1500m Indians.

Though companies had adopted Integrated Reporting on directions of SEBIbut it had not TRANSLATED into ‘Globally Competitive Indian Industry’ – actually performance of our Companies is declining – Dividend to Shareholders is just $10b for $4000b Assets.

Working at BST in 1974 – 100% American Factory – Largest in North India I was inventing, was member of British Council and American Center in 1977 was accessing Fortune and other Business Magazines – Engineering, Handbooks and Annual Reports of Companies was offering Technologies and Innovative Projects to Indian & Foreign companies.

Garland Canal Project was shelved on the basis of few pages of ‘Hand Written Notes’ to PM in 1980 – was reduced one liner in 2003 – ‘Stupid idea of River Linking is on for 4 decades – Instead of Transporting 50 Billion Cubic Meters of Water – Why Don’t We Transport 30 million tones of Food-grains required by South India?’

SEBI had failed to provide ‘LEVEL WORKING CONDITIONS FOR COMPETITING COMPANIES’ – Companies may be Complying with ‘RULES’ but DISCOLSURES ARE INADEQUATE i.e. Reading SEC filing I get to know the Financial & Technical INSIGHT of the Company like PETROBRAS – but getting nothing in case of RIL.  

US Broke the Single Product MONOPOLY of Standard Oil, US Steel, American Tobacco, ATT etc

ü  SEBI task is easier – Breakdown MULTI-Product Companies in to SINGLE PRODUCT to be EFFICIENT & SMART COMPANIES, Create Level FINANCIAL Operating Conditions.

ü  Compulsory TECHNOLOGY & R&D Reporting – Appointment of Chief Tech Officers.
