Corruption free India became the attractive investment destination June 03, 2015 13:03

A dynamic and strong leadership at the Centre and reliable central banking institutions, has made India to be an "attractive investment destination" in the past one year, a top American investor banker said today. "India is perhaps one of the nicest stories from an investment perspective. You have strong leadership, both at the government and at the Central Bank. But you also have a lot of tail wind," Gerardo Rodriguez, head of emerging market multi-asset strategies at Blackrock told. "This (India) is a story where we are seeing the benefits of lower commodity prices that can benefit the world. So clearly you have now monetary policy action on the back of some space that was created by a more benign inflation environment with lower oil prices," he said. The banker pointed out that "a reform momentum" and"some tail winds from the monetary policy side" are helping the country to become "a very attractive investment proposition both from equity and fixed income perspective". "There was some revision in the numbers just recently in India. So we need to sort out and  rescale that in order to see what the right comparison to China is. It is really hard to think that India is actually growing faster than China. But ultimately in a low nominal growth environment," he noted. "Well, absolutely yeah. The story of an emerging market is that individual countries are getting to a certain scale in which it will be harder to talk about them as a group. They're very different in nature politically and economically," he said. "And because of that it sort of makes more and more sense to talk about the possibilities of domestic-driven growth, especially on the back of reform momentum as the case of India. That's pretty much the dominant narrative in emerging economies," he added. Investment towards India was in shambles during the regime of the UPA government, due to corruption and red tapes. The Modi government was able get away from the red tapes and gave a new confidence to the investors. It is a notable thing to highlight that during the one year of governance, even the opposition has not raised any allegation of corruption against the government. This has given credibility to the government to attract more FDI into the country. The foreign policy of the government has made it easy for the investors to do business with India. The government’s many initiatives like Make in India has attracted many business entities from other countries to invest in India. The government has displayed a clear cut policy and business friendly atmosphere which has become a hit to attract more FDI. The visionary government’s these policies will help in generating more job opportunities for the educated youth. By Premji

Yes, what you are expecting through this article is true. The word ‘IT’ in the title means ‘THAT’ only. Sunny Leone, the once porn star and the present popular star of Bollywood, said the dialogue in title in her latest flick ‘Mastizaade’. Getting into the details, the film crew of Mastizaade is currently facing adverse situations from the Censor board. The officials of the board, who have seen the film, rejected to give a certificate because of the high voltage intimacy content in it.  According to the reports, the content that disturbed the board is, a scene where, two drunkard guys having intimacy with a horse. Sunny who observes it, reaches up to them and offer herself to free the horse from the guys. Along with this scene, there are a few other scenes which highly irritated the  board officials and so rejected to certify the film.  But the movie team, who are very confident about the content of the film approached the Appellate tribunal for a proper justice. But the thing is, they have turned more anti to the crew after watching the film and asked them to comfortably watch the film in their respective houses itself.  So, the present situation of Mastizaade is ‘Problem zyaade’. Let’s see, if they could find any solution to release the flick, so that the hardcore fans of Sunny would be more thrilled to watch the film, after knowing about the description mentioned above.      By Phani

Pakistan’s laments on India’s conditions for peace talk June 03, 2015 11:51

Islamabad has called external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj's call for creating violence-free environment for talks as ironical and blamed India for ceasefire violations, rights abuses in Jammu & Kashmir and subversive activities in Pakistan. Pakistan is a rogue country which has a dubious nature of crying as a victim of terrorism and its Army and ISI train, support and host terrorists. "When India keeps violating ceasefire along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary, indulges in worst human rights violations against helpless Kashmiris and undertakes subversive activities in Pakistan, then asking Pakistan to create an environment free of violence only sounds ironical," Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's foreign affairs and national security advisor, Sartaj Aziz, told. The statement of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's foreign affairs and national security advisor, Sartaj Aziz is seen as a laughable on, when compared with the reality. "Pakistan has conveyed to India that it remains committed to dialogue, provided India is ready. Pakistan believes in a sustained, comprehensive and result-oriented dialogue," he said. Pakistan is preparing to hold elections in Gilgit-Baltistan in J&K, which India has described as an attempt by Pakistan to "camouflage its forcible and illegal occupation of the regions''. India has reiterated its territorial right over the Gilgit-Baltistan region, “Our position is well known. The entire J&K, including the regions of Gilgit and Baltistan, is an integral part of India,” spokesperson of Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Vikas Swarup said. "We are concerned at the continued efforts by Pakistan to deny the people of the region their political rights, and the efforts being made to absorb these territories,'' he added. "The fact that a Federal minister of Pakistan is also the "Governor of Gilgit Baltistan" speaks for itself. Unfortunately, in recent times the people of the region have also become victims of sectarian conflict, terrorism and extreme economic hardship due to Pakistan's occupational policies," added the official. Pakistan should invariably get out of the region and allow the people of PoK to exercise their will to be an integral part of Hindustan. “For the first time, India has objected the issue of Gilgit - Baltistan in a firm way. According to Pakistan, Gilgit-Baltistan was a settled issue. India has rejected this move of Pakistan. Pakistan is trying to be clever by holding elections in Gilgit-Baltistan, even though the assembly does not have municipal power. India is absolutely right to protest,” Defense expert Sushant Sareen told. By Premji

23 TDP MLAs to join YSRCP! June 03, 2015 10:27

Jyothula Nehru, YSRCP senior leader, made a sensational comment saying that, “23 TDP MLAs are waiting for a right opportunity to join YSRCP party. Once the opportunity knocks, they will quit TDP.”   It is already known that, Botsa Satyanarayana, the senior Congress leader is going to join YSRCP party. The date of his joining is on June 9th. First of all, this itself is a major plus for YSRCP party, as Botsa has a vast experience in the politics. On the other hand, if the Nehru’s statement turns true, i.e, not one or two, if a bulk of 23 TDP MLAs joins the party, then, that would strengthen YSRCP party and it would obviously be a tight jolt to TDP.   Nehru opined that, the reason behind the shifting of MLAs is, due to the unethical practices of Chandrababu Naidu. He is considered to be the key person behind Revanth Reddy’scam.  Allegations of Nehru cannot be turned down There is no such clarity on the silence of Naidu, regarding Revanth Reddy’s scam. In fact, that is the one, which is paving the way for raising the doubts on Naidu that, he might also be the part of the scam. These points have turned positive to the opposition parties and are so targeting TDP from all the corners.  On the other side, Revanth  Reddy’s jail term would be for seven years, if all the allegations about him are proved to be true. This would further degrade TDP party and there is also the threat of losing belief in the party, among the people too. By Phani

Culture Shapes the Environment June 02, 2015 19:07

My intnention is not to blame American Work Culture, but i just want to say " Don't get carried away with something, which is sheer robotic.  From a time, where the office is used to be the ‘home after home’ to the present days, where office has become Home itself – Americanism and its work culture has certainly taught us many more. Now in India, the new era employee is William Blake’s ‘School Boy’. The poem is good to read but hard to digest. Yes, if one loves to work under Centralized Air conditioner and want handsome salary, they need to work accordingly. Nobody denies that. But balancing personal and professional lives is equally important. Earn money, but not at the cost of relationships. We get the most use of today’s ever changing technology, which has erased all the distance barriers around the world. But at the same time, we make ourselves so busy (No, we addicted to being busy!). Scheduling the things till 2020 sounds so good now. Great! But are you spending the same day 365 times and calling it a year? Leading the same day routine for 60 years and calling it a life? If yes, then it’s time to rethink. Work is for Work and fun is for Fun. Don’t mix both In European nations, when workers go on holiday, they really go on holiday—they won’t answer work emails or make business calls. No colleague or manager would even think of sending an employee a late-night text (post office hours) relating to work, yet it happens all the time in America.

Baahubali release date confirmed June 02, 2015 18:25

Yes, the release date of India’s prestigious flick is out now. But it should be noted that, it’s the date of Bollywood Baahubali, but not Tollywood one. Unlike Telugu, Bollywood would not play hide and seek with the release dates of the films. They will announce the date, two months prior to the film’s release. This logic is even followed with Rajamouli’s Baahubali too.  As it is known that, Baahubali is releasing in Bollywood too, and Karan Johar is the man behind it. Now it was heard that the latter convinced the director, to fix a date for releasing the film in Bollywood. As per the reports stated, Baahubali will be released on July 10th. But the thing is, no such date is announced for the Telugu version as of yet. It seems like, Rajamouli’s intention is to tease the audience with the release date and finally release it on the same day, that is on July 10th.        By Phani
