Four Indian Woman features in Forbes annual list May 27, 2015 18:01

Forbes has named State Bank of India Chairperson Smt Arundhati Bhattacharya in its 100 Most Powerful Women’s list, with a ranking of 30 in the world. The Kolkata-born Bhattacharya, aged 59, has moved up six spots from No.36, in the list and is the SBI's first woman chairperson since October 2013. She oversees 220,000 staff in 16,000 branches which service 225 million customers as India's largest lender with offices in more than 36 countries. Two other women of Indian-origin, PepsiCo chief Indra Nooyi and Cisco chief technology and strategy officer Padmasree Warrior has also made to the list. Forbes's list of the 100 most influential women features extraordinary entrepreneurs, visionary CEOs, politicians, celebrity role models, billionaire activists and pioneer philanthropists. The top ten include philanthropist in the list are Melinda Gates (3), Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen (3), GM CEO Mary Barra (5), IMF Chief Christine Lagarde (6), Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff (7), Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg (8), YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki (9) and US First Lady Michelle Obama (10)."Recognising the multiple roles of working women, Ms Bhattacharya pioneered a two-year sabbatical policy for female employees taking maternity leave or give extended care to familly," Forbes said. “That these wretched stats continue year after year is a serious and pressing issue. But there’s hardly a void of powerful women — and the numbers are growing. That is, if we enlarge our focus from just who owns the greatest wealth or the heaviest corporate hammer to include the women whose influence and impact may be greater than the sum of their title,” Forbes said.“The 59-year old PepsiCo CEO rang in PepsiCo’s 50th anniversary by throwing a bone to an activist investor threatening to ruin the party. By handing a board seat to Nelson Peltz’s Trian Fund Management, who thinks the food and beverage giant should split up, Nooyi avoided a messy proxy fight,” Forbes said.India-born Padmasree Warrior has  dropped in the rankings this year to 84 on the list from 71 last year. Forbes said in her seven years in the USD 138 billion technology company, Padmasree Warrior has helped Cisco to grow its influence through acquisitions, including six in 2014 and 10 in 2013. The 54-year old Cornell-trained engineer mentors other women in the technology industry and “believes a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education informs creativity,” Forbes profile states.By Premji

Spicy talk: Sanjana May 27, 2015 17:52

We might be very well aware of the kids behavior while wearing clothes. Few kids are that naughty that they do not spare any clothes on their body. Dressing them completely is a big challenge for most of the parents. But after growing up, the behavior of those kids would be silly to themselves when they think of it. I think this logic did not work out in Sanjana’s life, even though she grown up. It is known that, she was spotted at a spa opening in a complete transparent dress. Not only the  naughty eyes, but also the neat eyes can easily search a lot of things in that dress. Again, an almost similar chance has come to those naughty and neat eyes. The above image is a pose of Sanjana for a recent photo shoot. If you can notice, you can observe the words ‘never give up’ on her hand. That itself says that she never gave up on drawing the attention of the guys with her attire. This pose is again not an exception for it. By Phani

After Kamal, it is Surya now! May 27, 2015 17:18

The controversial trend continues in the film industry. Be it Kamal, Lawrence or Surya, the controversy seems to be common for any actor in Tamil.Surya ‘Masss’ is getting ready for release across the world. But as usual, the film had to face a ban from the Kuwait government. The reason behind the ban is, according to them, the superpowers can only be possessed by the god alone and no human could be able to have them. From the trailer of Masss, it was revealed that Surya’s role in the film contains some supernatural powers. For this reason, Kuwait banned the movie..In fact, this is anyway expected one as in the past, Kamal’s Vishwaroopam and Lawrence Ganga movies had to face the similar situation in Kuwait.  But, it is not a heavy punishment for the film, as the revenue from that state does not make much impact on the collections of the film.  By Phani

Renewable energy, from power deficit to power surplus May 27, 2015 16:53

The government has approved 17 solar parks and plans to auction 15,877 MW of solar generating capacity this year, which will be a very big boost to the power sector. "We are also considering dollar tariffs in some cases to encourage foreign investment," power minister Piyush Goyal said. A self-hedging mechanism is being worked out to ensure that dollar tariffs do not cause any distress to the distribution companies that purchase solar power. “Clean energy will be prioritised with 25 solar parks of about 100 MW each planned and a Rs. 38,000 crore green energy corridor being set up to transmit renewable energy,” Power and Coal Minister Piyush Goyal said. “Power deficit at 3.6 per cent in India is the lowest in its history.”  The minister further said that the government is working towards providing electricity to rural areas. Micro grid and off-grid solutions are being worked out to provide power to 28 crore people in rural India who are still without electricity. Many companies in the private sector have committed to producing 273 GW of solar power. Railways too are going to use solar power, he said. Central Government is commited to ensure 24 x 7 power supply in all parts of the country in the next five years, Goyal said that 22,566 Mega Watts of power generation capacity was added in the last one year of this government taking charge. He also said that 40,000 MW rooftop solar energy will be set up. He said, “It will help lakhs of people through indirect employment.”Government is also planning to create job opportunities for more than 50,000 unemployed educated youth by engaging them as solar entrepreneurs to set up 20,000 MW of capacity and reduction in peak load shortages through revival of stranded gas-based power plants. Rs. 1.09 lakh crore investment in sub-transmission and distribution and Rs. 1 lakh crore of new transmission projects are to be bid out in the current year. Government under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi has set a target of increasing the renewable energy capacity to fivefold of 175,000 MW by 2022. The availability of power will ensure industries to function to its capacity and thus generating large job market.By Premji

Your high heels may complicate your health May 27, 2015 16:44

Wearing high heels can make women confident and stylish, but if you are wearing them too often, it may harm your health. The researchers from University of Albama at Birmingham have showed that between 2002 and 2012 the high heel related injuries have been doubled. By this, experts suggest that wearing the appropriate shoes for the appropriate occasion and being aware of one's surroundings are good ideas. “Although high-heeled shoes might be stylish, from a health standpoint, it would be worthwhile for those interested in wearing high-heeled shoes to understand the risks and the potential harm that precarious activities in high-heeled shoes can cause,” said lead investigator Gerald McGwin, Ph.D., vice chair and professor of the Department of Epidemiology in the UAB School of Public Health.Between 2002 and 2012, there were 123,355 high heel related injuries are seen during this period. The peak year for injuries was 2011, with more than 19,000. People between the ages of 20 and 29 were most likely to suffer an injury, followed by the 30-39 age group.So experts suggest to limit wearing heels. By Lizitha

Highlights of Mahanadu May 27, 2015 16:26

‘Mahanadu’ is being held in Hyderabad and the speech given by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister drew huge applauses among the party members.Naidu said, “the party is very young and thus has the ability to do anything. The recent governments are announcing food and house schemes, but those are announced by NTR long back, the future of India can be known from the development programmes of TDP party.  TDP cares party workers- Naidu“A Rs.2 lakh worth insurance is given to TDP workers, it is the first party in India to implement this type of scheme. Under Congress government, 24000 farmers committed suicide, but the government is not concerned about it”, Naidu said.AP and Telangana are my two eyes- Naidu“In 2004, we wanted the states to be united and participated in the elections with that motto. But in 2009, we understood the problems of Telangana residents and thus wished the states to bifurcate and the same was put in a letter and was sent to the center. But, I even asked that I can manage both the states, but Congress laughed at me, but I still feel the same, both the Telugu state people are my two eyes, no opposition can threaten us,” he further added.  “We have a government at the center who can work with us for the development of the state. Whatever the developmental programmes the party implements, it will make sure that it benefits the people of both the Telugu states. After Gujarat, it is Hyderabad which was in worse condition once. The development of it was the effort of TDP government.”Naidu reminded,  “AP has a sea which was spread over 974 kms. So the people who live nearer to it has an every scope to develop than the people who are far. So there is no scope for any farmer suicides as the government is making proper plans basing the sea.”Amaravathi renamed as ‘Amaravati’:“During the bifurcation of the states, no one suggested any capital city, but it was TDP who decided that Amaravathi would be the right place for it. To have the goosebumps just on hearing the name, the spelling of it was modified to ‘Amaravati’. This would be the proudest Capital city in India, I assure that, but I need the support of all the people either through money, material or labor”, Naidu pleaded.YSRCP in Red sandal smuggling- NaiduNaidu said that, it is openly proven that YSRCP party is involved in Red sandal smuggling, so it is going to be out of the country very soon.On the other hand, he said that there are plans going on in the party to contest for elections in more states along with AP and Telangana. The craze of TDP among the public is the reason behind this, he said.   By Phani

What nonsense is this?, don’t you have the basic sense to check what you write?, Don’t you clarify what you write is true or not?, this is a technique of yellow journalism”. These are the words spoken by our RGV.The director who is very much interested to involve in controversies and also enjoys them, is not able to tolerate an article written by a journalist for a popular English newspaper.The article said that, RGV is planning a movie with Tori Black, a popular porn star and also the director met her and took her nod for the film.  But RGV condemned the news, saying that it is complete rumor. There is no truth in the article, it was just a baseless, he said The man who wrote it is just trying to implement Yellow journalism (not knowing the fact behind topic and writing the article just to earn craze) and hype the news. In fact, he is scared to know about the fact, as he thought that it might kill his news and just wrote it without confirming.      By Phani
