IRCTC starts selling air tickets on its website

The public sector Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has launched an air ticketing website to improve customer satisfaction and provide a seamless passenger movement over various modes of transport.
Minister of State for Railways Bharatsingh Solanki told the Rajya Sabha in a written reply to a queston today that, in fact, IRCTCwas selling air tickets on its website since May 6, 2010 as a white label arrangement with a backend content provider. 
However, now IRCTC has launched an air ticketing website on its own since earlier this month, he said.
Mr Solanki said IRCTC had developed in-house air ticketing module for booking tickets for domestic and international airlines through its website and 
IRCTC now has directly entered into agreement with various airlines such as Air India, Jet Airways, Kingfisher, Spicejet, Indigo and Go Air, he said.
Initially, the customer will be able to book tickets on these airlines for domestic travel and later the international airlines for international travel, the Minister added.

3 Rajkot boys in IIT-JEE’s list of top 100

Ahmedabad: Three students from Rajkot figure in the list of top 100 candidates in this year’s IIT-JEE whose results were announced on Friday. While Siddharth Patel is ranked 60, Ridhesh Bhalodiya and Shalin Moravia have stood 65th and 66th respectively in the all-India examination.
The joint entrance examination (JEE) is held every year for admission to the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and other top engineering colleges of the country.
Siddharth, Ridhesh and Shalin have several things in common besides their being from Rajkot. All the three began preparing for JEE when they were still in Std 10; they attended vacation batches of coaching centres at Kota for IIT; and all want to join IIT-Bombay. However, they differ in their choice of engineering branches for further studies.
On his preparations, Siddharth says that after his SSC examinations, he focused on acquiring a sound understanding of the basic concepts of physics, chemistry and mathematics.
“One thing is for sure. For JEE you need a clear idea of the basics of science subjects,” he said.
Siddharth scored 335 out of 401 marks (83.5 per cent) in JEE. “I wish to study computer science at IIT-Bombay,” he said. His father is owner of Everest Wafers, a food product company based in Rajkot.
Ridhesh Bhalodiya, who scored 333 out of 401 in the examination, wants to study electrical engineering at IIT-Bombay. "My father is a general surgeon. I was always interested in mathematics, which is why opted for engineering. I started preparations when I was in Standard 10. Having your basic concepts clear is very important for this examination," he said, adding that he had taken coaching at Kota.
Shalin Moraviya too scored 333 out of 401 like his friend Ridhesh. His father runs a unit manufacturing spare parts of diesel oil engines. "I and Ridhesh began preparing for the JEE during the vacations after the Std 10 examination. I too took coaching at Kota. I want to study Mechanical engineering at IIT-Bombay," Shalin said.
In all, 4,79,651 candidates appeared in the examination held on April 8. "Of the total candidates, 24,112 have secured ranks in various categories and 19,426 have been shortlisted for counselling for admission to 9,647 seats in the IITs and other institutes," JEE chairman GD Reddy said in New Delhi.
He said the counseling website will be open to the shortlisted candidates from Friday and all of them are expected to fill up their choice of courses by 5 pm on June 10. Apart from the IITs, IT-BHU, Varanasi and ISM Dhanbad accept JEE scores for admission.
According to available figures, 225 students from Gujarat have cleared IIT-JEE this year.
An estimated 110 students have cleared IIT-JEE from Ahmedabad. Arjunsingh Chauhan, a student of Maharaja Agrasen School, is ranked 176 while Ojas Kanhere and Dhruvin Patel from the city are ranked 224 and 236 respectively.
Fourteen students from Surat, five of whom are girls, have cleared the IIT-JEE exams this year. Ayush Baid, whose all-India rank is 583, is the city topper. Last year, only nine students from the city had cleared the exams.

Satyamev Jayate: Aamir gets Rajasthan CM to fast track foeticide cases

aamir-gehlot Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot Wednesday assured actor Aamir Khan, whose TV show “Satyamev Jayate” created a storm with its in-depth study of female foeticide, that he would take up the issue of a fast track court with the state chief justice so that justice was expedited.
Addressing a press conference with Aamir by his side, the chief minister said the show brought reality to the forefront. “I never heard about his show before it went on air,” he said, adding that the matter had now been exposed.
“We are doing a lot of work towards the issue,” Gehlot said. ”But to handle this problem we need the support of the state police. He has already done a lot through his show,” Gehlot said.
“Satyamev Jayate”, which was telecast Sunday, discussed female foeticide through case studies of women, opinion of experts and also invited two Rajasthan-based TV journalists who had seven years ago done a sting operation. The sting by Meena Sharma and Shripal Shaktawat had covered 140 doctors involved in sex determination tests and abortions.
Aamir met Gehlot to request the creation of a fast track court to decide the cases of the doctors, none of who have been penalised. Aamir said he had made “a specific request to the chief minister that all cases related to the show” be decided at the earliest. He asked the chief minister whether a fast track court could be created so justice was expedited.
Gehlot, he said, assured him that he would speak to the chief justice of Rajasthan to bring all cases under one court so the cases were heard as soon as possible. 
The star said he was hopeful that his debut TV show, telecast on Doordarshan and Star Plus, would “touch people’s hearts”. 
“Wherever such incidents occur, we will go,” he told reporters.
“I was expecting that I would be able to touch people’s heart with the show and I am glad to see the effect of the show. I am happy about it,” Aamir said..
“I am not an activist, I am an entertainer. I only try to reach people’s heart. I am not here to talk about issues seven days a week.. I am an entertainer, and that is what I am passionate about. 
“I want to touch people’s emotions and know their feelings, whether it is through a film like ‘Dhoom 3′ or through this show.
“As an entertainer, it is not necessary that I only make people laugh, it means that I should be able to evoke all emotions in them.”

IIT-JEE 2012 results out, Delhi boy Arpit Aggarwal tops the list

The results for IIT-JEE, the joint entrance examination for the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, were declared on Friday with Arpit Aggarwal from Delhi topping the test.

Gayle-force exposes flaw

One doubts if there is a bigger catch in the Indian Premier League than Chris Gayle? After all, he is the most destructive batsman in Twenty20 cricket. Had he been sold in the auction, it's a good bet that he would have broken all records.

Surprisingly, he is not the highest 

earner in the league. Kolkata Knight Riders' Gautam Gambhir commands $2.4 million while the Royal Challengers Bangalore managed to retain Gayle for just $560,000.
What's even more difficult to fathom is that the player, who single-handedly took his team to the 2011 IPL final, is priced less than the likes of Yusuf Pathan and Robin Uthappa, who command $2.1 million each, and Delhi Daredevils' Irfan Pathan ($1.9 million). That too when Gayle had offers pouring in from almost every team.

But that's how the IPL system works. Having had the West Indian as a replacement in IPL IV, RCB had the first right of refusal for him, but only a total purse of $2 million. If the franchise had to buy a few players in the auction, they had to keep Gayle's price as low as possible. Getting him for $560,000 allowed them to achieve that.

The example highlights the fact that no one is surprised by Mohnish Mishra's claims during a sting operation that he was being paid an amount much higher than the official figures. Even though he later declared his statement as frivolous, no one is under any doubt that the practice is rampant in the IPL.

Mishra & Co were soft targets of the TV channel's sting, players who hardly count in the big world of IPL. While these domestic players are suspended, the bigger fish are swimming freely in the IPL ocean.

For a combined total of $4.5 million, Chennai Super Kings retained MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Murali Vijay and Albie Morkel while the Mumbai Indians kept Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, Lasith Malinga and Kieron Pollard. If it's true, isn't it a steal?

Imagine how much the two franchises would have had to shell out in auction for the likes of Dhoni and Tendulkar.

No clarity
There's no clarity over how much the retained players are paid. It's this opacity that's the root of all evil in the player payments. The current IPL structure of player payments is clearly not working.

It obviously breeds corruption. It's time to check out the English Premier League model where it's a straight deal between the player and the club or the NBA model based on draft picks.

Satyamev Jayate: Truth Is God in India's Phenomenal TV Show

Satyamev Jayate is an ancient Sanskrit saying that means "truth alone triumphs." It is India's national motto and appears on the national symbol. Since it is so closely associated with government iconography, its mention in a conversation is likely to be steeped in irony, rather than optimism or belief. It is not something that is widely contemplated or debated.
In the past few days though, "Satyamev Jayate" has become one of the most searched, tweeted, shared, liked and talked about terms in India. The reason for this is not a sudden outbreak of spiritual contemplation, but simply a television show that has captured public attention like few others. The first episode featured a woman whose face was nearly ripped off by her husband. The subject of the episode though was even darker. It was about families that kill their own children. Sometimes, soon after they are born, sometimes even before they are born. But in every case, it is only one kind of victim, the babies are all girls.
"Satyamev Jayate" is an unusual television show. Until the first episode appeared last Sunday on India's Doordarshan and Star Plus networks, there was little sense of what the show was even going to be about, except for the fact that it was going to be hosted by the Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan. Promos for the show featured an inspiring anthem and evocative images of Mr. Khan interacting with children, fishermen and people from different parts of India. Everything suggested a reprise of Discovery of India, the famous work of history penned by India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and made into a TV series in the 1980s by the acclaimed director Shyam Benegal.
But there was also an expectation, if a carefully orchestrated one, that the show would be something more than a celebrity's travelogue, given Aamir Khan's past record. Unlike heroes who sing and dance and bash up the villains (though he does that too in his films), Aamir Khan has come to be associated with roles and stories that carry a social or political message, not a small accomplishment at all given the long-standing gap that existed in India between Bollywood and "serious" cinema. "Lagaan," a movie that was a bit incomprehensible perhaps to awards-committees in baseball countries, told an inspiring story about a group of peasants challenging their colonial British rulers to a game of cricket in protest against an unfair tax. Taare Zameen Par saw him play an art teacher who nurtures a gifted school boy cruelly trampled upon by the militaristic expectations of middle class Indian family life. Most importantly, his Rang de Basanti came to be seen as uncannily prescient about a wave of middle-class anger and activism against public corruption that peaked around the quasi-Gandhian figure of Anna Hazare last year. The production house led by Mr. Khan and his wife has also become associated with powerful, critical and unusual films like "Peepli Live," a dark satire about 24/7 news culture and the serious issue of farmer suicides.
When "Satyamev Jayate" finally appeared, it became clear what kind of show it was, and what kind of a persona Mr. Khan was going to now become. They are calling him "India's Oprah," and of course, Bono. And he is Aamir Khan too, to begin with. There has perhaps never been this sort of media power lined up against infanticide and feticide in India until now. The question, though, is what will happen next? Will truth indeed conquer?
There is a temptation for those who study the media to think that the media can be a magical tool to create a better world. That temptation exists not because of a naïve idealism but because of its opposite; we know the media serve interests, commercial and political, sometimes even the much celebrated new social media. There is comment, even if subdued at the moment, about all the business and money riding around on this new TV show despite its ideals. There is skepticism, and not an unfounded one, about the effectiveness of text-message voting activism, whether a nation can vote out a persistent evil as easily as a contestant on a reality show. The solution that the first episode offered, despite its touching Oprah-like format, did not seem especially powerful. Mr. Khan concluded his show with an appeal to viewers to send text messages to the government to press for the setting up of a "fast-track" court to more quickly try and punish those who violate the law (it is illegal for hospitals to reveal the sex of an unborn child). Government officials, for their part, do not seem embarrassed by this, and have welcomed the support. It may well be the case that the level of exposure Aamir Khan has brought to the issue would make those who break the law a little less brazen about it. But the greater promise this show has, in my view, has less to do with the modest activism it offers, but in the way it is starting to tell a story about reality, a way that might provide the cultural will needed to face some life and death issues. That promise is right there in the title. It has something to do with truth, and God.
The "truth" that "Satyamev Jayate" invokes goes beyond the modern, Western sense of "truth" as a fact, or a statement about reality. Although there is now a well-worn media narrative in place in India about such an idea of truth (the idea of something concealed or unknown being revealed), there is more to the saying than meets the modern eye. After all, the truth that the first episode of the program revealed was not an unheard of one at all. India is fairly aware of its faults, even if a variety of reasons ranging from survival to selfishness make it act sometimes as if it doesn't. A TV series anchored by a Bollywood star featuring ugly, tragic, bitter realities of life in India today does not play in the same way as an expose. That is what makes Satyamev Jayate different. It does not purport to expose the truth, for there is nothing to expose in an open crime scene. What it does seek to do is bring back another notion of truth that abides in India, and it is one that is steeped in its religiosity, in how India sees the world in God and God in the world. It is a Gandhian ideal of truth, that "Truth is God," rather than the other way around. Truth, in this sense, is less an account of reality, than an experience that grasps it, does justice to one's relationship with it. Since it is a human experience, it is not expected to be sterile, dispassionate, objective in the modern sense. It might be the opposite. It might be poetic, emotional, excessive, melodramatic, even. It might make you cry. But in the end, it might make you see right and wrong, clearly. It is about ethics, not formulae.
The last time I heard the phrase "Satyameva Jayate" in a conversation was a few years ago. "It's not like India has abandoned 'Satyamev Jayate,'" a friend of mine who had gone back from America to live in India said. "We still live by it, but the problem is that we think that whatever exists today, no matter how bad it is, is Satyam (truth)." Put another way, we are a nation of the status quo. We imagine customs and virtues where there are none. That is perhaps the unfortunate side of having a liberal, diverse, protean religious culture. It can morph into accommodating virtually anything and even sanctifying it as tradition. It can rarely find the will to draw what we call a Lakshman rekha, a line in the sand, that tells us what is right and what is not. The law might be one, but it is seen ever so often as an inconvenience that must be overcome rather than an ethical imperative. We assume that whatever is going on must be OK -- everyone's doing it. Whatever is brazenly not OK and still goes on, this we assume must be because of corrupt politicians. Aamir Khan has rightly pointed out that not every crime takes place in the street (read his thoughtful interview in Tehelkahere). It is in the bedroom, as he says, and in the prayer room, in the conscience ultimately that the idea of truth must be confronted, and won anew. If people convince themselves that crimes can be expiated for by merely bribing the system (or the deities) the culture must unconvince them of such a mercenary mentality. That is what Aamir Khan seems to have set out to do.
The Indian media audience is poised between two different sensibilities about truth. On the one hand, there is a sensationalist, breaking-news, expose, sort of spin about truth in the media culture. Despite all the obvious hype, this sort of news mania rarely makes for cynicism, since cynicism is the very product that the media sell. It is the "truth" that is reinforced through thousands of tiny instances day after day; that the problem with India is nothing more than politicians, that family life is all about hatred and treachery like in the soap operas, that happiness is all about consuming cosmetics and fast-food like the beautiful people in advertisements, and that "reality" is what happens when people pretend to live together and spend their time scheming against each other (while occasionally testing mettle and courage by eating worms or other such dares). All of these things are telling us that this world is a certain way, that this is the truth. Add to these the existence of really serious issues like those Aamir Khan is presenting on his show, and it would seem that there is no hope at all, But the truth that "Satyamev Jayate" offers is a different kind of truth that we desire. It is, first of all, the assurance we are right to feel that all this is wrong. It is the assurance that it is not weird or "Gandhi" to feel the pain of others as our own. It is the assurance most of all that comes from watching those who have survived tell their stories, for their courage is always an example to all those who are similarly suffering, and can use the hope. The real heroes of "Satyamev Jayate" are really its guests, as sentimental as that might sound. They are the truth that will triumph. We need to know from them that goodness can lead to a happy ending, or at the very least the promise of a new beginning. Bollywood has met reality, and it is not a bad thing at all.

Ek Tha Tiger (2012) Movie Review – Details

Movie Title – Ek Tha Tiger
Star Cast – Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Usha Uthup, Ranvir Shorey.
Director – Kabir Khan
Producer – Aditya Chopra
Story by – Aditya Chopra
Music Director – Sohail Sen
Lyricist – Neelesh Misra
Screenplay by – Kabir Khan and Neelesh Misra
Cinematography– Ravi K. Chandran
Distributed by – Yash Raj Films
Genre – Romantic / Thriller
Ek Tha Tiger is set to release on 17th August 2012It is for the very first time in his career that Salman Khan is in the lead of a movie being produced under the Yash Raj Films banner. In Ek Tha Tiger Salman plays the character of the central protagonist ‘Tiger Boss’. Katrina Kaif plays his love interest in the movie and her characters name is ‘Zoya’. It for the first time after their break-up that Salman and Katrina are paired opposite each other in a movie. The story of this film is written by Aditya Chopra and is being directed by the ‘New York’ hit maker Kabir Khan.
This movie is being billed as one of the biggest movies of 2012 and with the Salman – Katrina pairing, expectations have gone higher. Going by Salman Khan’s score at the box office, this surely will be his biggest hit so far and this time Katrina Kaif will be alongside to add that extra factor to it. Nothing about the story of this movie has been revealed so for, but who really cares about the story when you have the Salman ‘Dabang’ Khan and Katrina ‘Chikni Chameli’ Kaif romancing on-screen.
Controversies are bound to happen if it is a Salman Khan movie, and Ek Tha Tiger is no exception either. There was a controversy regarding the release date of this movie. Reportedly this movie was supposed to be released on 1st June 2012 but on Aamir Khan’s request, who wanted to release hi movie ‘Talaash’ on the same day, Salman shifted the release date of his movie to Eid of 2012 which is in August. It was even reported that Salman Khan has been offered a whooping amount of 32 crores for this movie. The other controversy surrounding this movie was that music director, Pritam was supposed to compose the music of this film, but when he opted out, Aditya Chopra roped in Sohail Sen to compose the music of his film. Sohail Sen’s previous venture was ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ which did fairly well at the box office and its music was a huge success.
Ek Tha Tiger is being produced and will be distributed in the overseas and Indian market under the Yash Raj Films banner. They began shooting for this on the 10th of August 2011 and it is being shot in 5 different foreign locations which include Turkey, Ireland and Iraq. The entire crew had to encounter with an earthquake while in Turkey, but thankfully no-one was hurt. Ek Tha Tiger is definitely a movie to watch out for this year and the reason is nothing or no-one else, but SALMAN KHAN!
