Control your diabetes and obesity with capsicum April 23, 2015 15:36

Nowadays many people are easily prone to lifestyle diseases like diabetes, obesity and hypertension. Our eating habits and lifestyle could be the main reasons for it. To control or reverse it there are many natural remedies and recently capsicum has been added to that list. The scientists at the CSIR- Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (IICT) proved that, yellow and red bell peppers slowed down the digestion of carbohydrates and lipids which in turn helps in controlling the diabetes and obesity. It was found that yellow capsicum inhibited the activity of two digestive enzymes such as alpha-glucosidase and lipase as compared to green capsicum.  Lead author and Senior Principal Scientist, Dr. Ashok Kumar Tiwari explained that the concentration of lipids and blood sugar is reduced once digestion of carbohydrates and lipids is slowed down, and hence it would cut the chance of developing hyperglycaemia and hyperlipidemia. Even the yellow bell peppers are more effective due to the presence of oligomerised anthocyanins. They were better inhibitors than pro-anthocyanins found in green capsicum. So experts suggest eating a cup of capsicum salad before the main course to keep your diabetics and obesity in control. By Lizitha

Govt launches online system to accept visa applications from Pakistani Hindu refugees April 23, 2015 15:27

As a first step to grant Indian citizenship to nearly 60,000 Hindu refugees from Pakistan, government has rolled out an online system for submission of Long Term Visa (LTV) application and for its processing by various agencies.The decision has been taken by the Home Ministry to address the difficulty being faced by Hindu minorities of Pakistan who come to India with the intention to settle permanently, official sources said.So far, all such visa applications have been accepted manually. Pakistani nationals eligible for LTV can now submit the applications online by logging in www.indianfrro.gov.in/frro.The new system will enable the applicants to monitor and track their applications and will also help in their speedy disposal.While the manual system of submission of LTV applications will continue along with the online system for three months with effect from 1 August, 2015, all applications for LTV will be received and processed only on the online mode.Ever since Narendra Modi-led government came to power in May last year, the Home Ministry has taken a number of steps to streamline the procedure for the members of the minority communities of Pakistani, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, who come to India with the intention to settle permanently.In September 2014, the Home Ministry has set up a task force to monitor and expedite the processing of such people's citizenship and LTV applications.Delay in processing applications cause hardships and difficulties to applicants, especially to minorities from neighbouring countries who are often of poor economic standing.There are about 400 Pakistani Hindu refugee settlements in cities like Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Bikaner and Jaipur. There are around 60,000 Hindu refugees from Pakistan, official sources said.Prime Minister Narendra Modi had, during the Lok Sabha election campaign, said in separate rallies in West Bengal and Rajasthan that Pakistani and Bangaladeshi Hindu refugees will be treated like other Indian citizens. - Manohar

If you are busy, don't go there April 23, 2015 15:02

Generally when people invite us for few occasions, we will sometimes be in that critical situations that we are unable to attend the occasion we are invited for. In that case, though it is not possible, on their compulsion we attend it anyway. But after attending, we start talking on phones or engage in any other activity that is purely irrelevant to the occasion.    In that case it would better be to avoid going to their place as it truly hurts those people seeing you engaged in some other issue. If you are totally absent, they will feel bad and later can understand the urgency you had.     By Phani

For the many activities, the AP government is carrying down, there is a divide response among the public. Few support it, few oppose it, few love to stay in the party forever and few started going out of the party. All these incidents are making AP CM go mad.It was known that Manchi Reddy Kishan Reddy left the party and joined TRS. Since then it was heard that the remaining MLAs too are in the process of leaving the party. Among them Prakash Goud and Krishna Rao names are heard out. Loosing Kishan Reddy itself is a very big loss to the party and now losing other two MLAs too costs a lot to TDP. Revanth Reddy declared that there would not be any loss to the AP government if the MLAs  leave the party. The trust of the people would not be disturbed, he said.The thing is, TDP government is planning various public meetings just target the TRS government  unable to do it completely as the MLAs are in a queue of leaving the party and going to their targeted party TRS. Now how can the AP CM convince the Telangana people in the public meetings to be against TRS. Will he have the confidence to talk to the people. What can he answer,  if any of them asks that why MLAs are leaving TDP and joining TRS ?. Will there be a proper answer to it is a question now.   Chandrababu Naidu is going to Paalamooru to address a meeting and target KCR.. what will be his position now..?, its like entering the Lion's den with a Lion's mask..can't the lion smell..?By Phani

Dilip Shanghvi- A Business tycoon zealously guarding his privacy April 23, 2015 12:53

For many, Sun Pharmacy is a less known or not so well-known name until the Bloomberg Billionaires published the druggist as India’s No1 firm in the World on March 5 2015. As per Bloomberg, Dilip Shanghvi, Sun Pharmacy Managing Director surpassed Mukesh Ambani and became the richest Indian with his net worth of $21.7 billion. By that day the Reliance chairman's fortune is $21.6 billion.Sanghvi’s success story is an inspiration for many youngsters. He started his company with Rs 10,000 as an investment and the irony is ‘Sun’ remains in the dark for many years, except it bobs up once in a while with the acquisitions. But gradually, the number of acquisitions kept growing till the most recent being the $3.2-billion purchase last April of long-time Indian rival Ranbaxy Labs. Shanghvi has of late been in the news for a string of nonpharma forays. He and his family have picked up stakes in telecom firm Uninor and wind power firm Suzlon, triggering talk whether his group was sowing seeds to becoming a conglomerate, a path followed by most Indian business groups.But Shanghvi dismissed such suggestions and insisted that the forays into non-Pharma areas were "strictly personal financial investments"."There are no plans of diversification on cards. These are strictly personal financial investments and for now we plan to stay focused on pharmaceuticals," he said.For Shanghvi, acquisition of Ranbaxy is the Sun’s largest and most complex acquisition ever. Ranbaxy, once India's most high-profile drugmaker that was bought by Japan's Daiichi Sankyo in 2008 has been reeling under a series of regulatory troubles ever since. When asked about what he planned to bring Ranbaxy back to the track, Shanghvi replied that instead of going with the superficial exercises, they analyzed the problem. “We have to understand what the deeper issues are and sort these out and help the talent perform their very best", quipped the turnaround artiste.But coming to the personal life, despite his wealth, Dilip always maintain a relative obscurity.He has no bodyguards and is rarely seen at parties. He may have dislodged the title of India's richest man, but for the self-made billionaire, the label sits oddly - and even uncomfortably.Speaking for the first time on the topic of being crowned as India's wealthiest man by Bloomberg Billionaires, Dilip Shanghvi, says far from being happy with the tag, he's not at all comfortable with the kind of attention and narrative it has triggered."I am not comfortable at all with this tag of being dubbed the richest Indian and all the attention that follows for the reason. The truth is that I like to focus on my work and do it right," Shanghvi told in an interview."Money is the outcome of my work and is incidental," added the 59-year-old self-made billionaire whose company is today India's biggest drugmaker and the world's fifth largest generics producer. Known for his unassuming, soft spoken demeanor and parsimony with words, Shanghvi, unlike other Mumbai-based tycoons who live in South Mumbai, lives in the suburb of Juhu. A fan of the Harry Potter series, he can be occasionally found in modest eateries serving South Indian food or catching a movie at a multiplex cinema near where he lives. - Manohar

Indian economy strong to face external shocks April 23, 2015 12:37

Rating agency Moody's said emerging economies in Asia Pacific region, including India, have a high degree of immunity to external shocks, but will face challenges when the US Federal Reserve begins raising interest rates. "A common challenge for emerging economies in the region will come when the US Federal Reserve begins to raise interest rates. Asia Pacific sovereigns generally exhibit strong external payments positions and government debt profiles relative to peers elsewhere in the world are the factors that should stand them in good stead," Moody's Investors Service said.Most Asia Pacific (APAC) sovereigns have a relatively high degree of immunity to external economic shocks but their ratings momentum is diverging as some drive through ambitious reforms, while others struggle with long-standing challenges. "A key risk for credit quality is therefore whether governments can deliver on policy pledges," it said. Moody's has a 'Baa3' rating for India, with a positive outlook. Most sovereigns in Asia Pacific are net oil importers; the recent slump in oil prices will have a largely positive impact on the region. "Savings on energy costs will support sovereigns in their efforts to rein in budget deficits or rebuild fiscal buffers," Moody's noted."Commodity exporters in the region will be most adversely affected by China's "new normal" of slower economic growth," Moody's said. International Monetary Fund (IMF) has projected that India will overtake China as the fastest growing emerging economy in 2015 - 16 by clocking a growth rate of 7.5 percent on the back of recent policy initiatives, pick-up in investments and lower oil prices.The rating agency Moody’s finding show the strength of the present government to make Indian economy stronger and unshaken. This will lead to large scale investment, which will trigger the growth of the Indian economy. Stronger economy in return provides job opportunity. This will ensure the overall growth of the country and put the country in the map of developed country.By Premji

Image talk : Baahubali April 23, 2015 12:32

No matter how much the media is curious to know any details of Baahubali, the movie team is not concerned of it and did not reveal any big news relating to the movie. But when an international media came for the interview, it had to give few details and also many photos relating to the various sets of the movie.Here are those few of the sets where Baahubali had its shooting. One set involves Rana where his face was made into very big idol like this. Seems to be like Rana's character has much significance in the film. The other pic is the chariot containing the horses which was also observed previously in Rajamouli's Magadheera too. A historical film will anyway have these chariots as there were no other vehicles in those days. Other most significant pic is that involving babies. How does a baby becomes a part of the set property, this might be quite interesting to now the fact behind the babies and the rest others are the regular swords and other set property without which a commercial historical movies is a dream. By the way, an international web media called “Twitch film” grabbed all these pics from Baahubali team and were thoroughly happy to bring these into public exclusively.By Phani

IPL 8 Suresh Raina, Ashish Nehra Star in Chennai Super Kings' 27-Run Win vs Royal Challengers Bangalore April 23, 2015 11:58

Veteran Ashish Nehra dished out a brilliant spell of pace bowling after Suresh Raina's batting heroics as Chennai Super Kings recorded a comfortable 27-run victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore in their IPL cricket match here on Wednesday.Put into bat, Raina smashed a blistering 32-ball 62 to help Chennai post a challenging 181 for 8 after a 25-minute delayed start due to rain before Nehra led the bowling charge with superb figures of four wickets for 10 runs in his four overs, his best in T20 cricket, at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.Thirty-five-year-old Nehra ended Bangalore's faint hopes of a victory by dismissing home side captain Virat Kohli (51) and Harshal Patel (0) in consecutive deliveries in the 17th over to seal the match for Chennai. Bangalore ended at 154 for eight while chasing 182 for a win.The home side which took the field without destructive opening batsman Chris Gayle -- dropped after indifferent form -- did not have a big partnership and none of their top-order batsmen, except Kohli, could reach to 20.The India Test captain Kohli played a fine 42-ball knock which was studded with four boundaries and two sixes but he was out just when he looked like setting up himself nicely for a final assault.With today's win, Chennai bounced back after their last match loss to Rajasthan Royals and now have eight points from five matches with the help of three wins to remain on second spot.On the other hand, Bangalore slumped to their third loss on the trot and still remain at the bottom of the eight-team league table with just two points from four matches by virtue of their win over defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders in their opening match.Bangalore made a flying start in their reply with Rilee Rossouw (14) and Manvinder Bisla (17) reaching 31 for no loss in the third over but Nehra dismissed the opening duo in the space of four balls in the fourth over to push the home side on the backfoot.Bisla was out thanks to a sensational one-handed catch by Faf du Plessis at mid-off in one of the best catches of the tournament so far. Du Plessis plucked the ball from the air with his outstretched hands and held onto it while falling on the ground.In the last ball of the fourth over, Rossouw edged a Nehra delivery on to his stumps as RCB were reduced to 33 for two in the fourth over.The two quick dismissals applied brakes on the home side. Dinesh Karthik could contribute just 10 from 11 balls before he was out thanks to a superb catch by Dwayne Bravo off the bowling of Ishwar Pandey and A B de Villiers (14 from 10 balls) also did not last long after threatening to play a big knock.De Villiers hit two sixes in his short stay at the crease before he was run-out due to a brilliant effort by Chennai captain and wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni who was able to beat the nimble-footed South African to dislodge the bails before he could regain his crease.Bangalore was on a shaky ground at 75 for three at the halfway mark and IPL debutant Sarfaraz Khan (11), the youngest to play in the cash-rich league at 17 years and 177 days, made a quick exit after hitting a six.That left Bangalore at 97 for five at the 14th over and the asking rate rose to nearly 14 an over.Kohli reached to his fifty from 40 balls with a straight six off Ravindra Jadeja in the 16th over but soon got out to leave Bangalore in tatters.Earlier, Chennai rode on Raina's brilliant attacking half-century and his 54-run quickfire partnership from just four overs for the third wicket with his captain Dhoni (13) to post a challenging 181 for eight.Chennai lost a bit of momentum in between with quick dismissals of Raina, Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja (8) but they still scored 181 for eight with Faf du Plessis remaining not out on 33 from 18 deliveries.Chennai were 81 for two at the halfway mark and added exactly 100 in the next 10 overs. Opener Dwayne Smith made a handy contribution of 39 from 29 balls.Raina came in at the fall of other opener Brendon McCullum (4) in the second over and after settling down, he set the Chinnaswamy Stadium on fire with some lusty blows all over the park. He hit four boundaries and six sixes in his 32-ball knock.Raina struck three sixes off successive deliveries in the 13th over bowled by leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. He reached to his fifty with the first six of the over in the second ball and then followed up with two more.But Raina was out while trying for one big hit too many as he holed out to Rilee Rossouw at long off in the fifth ball of the 13th over.Chennai then lost Dhoni and Jadeja in quick succession --in the 15th and 16th overs. Dwayne Bravo (5) and Ravichandran Ashwin (5) also did not last long but du Plessis held one end together to take his side to a challenging total.For Bangalore, Chahal was the most successful bowler by grabbing three wickets though he conceded 40 runs in his four overs. Iqbal Abdulla took two wickets while Mitchell Starc, Harshal Patel and David Wiese got a wicket each. - Manohar
