But that does not seem to be the case any more if we con- sider cases of cheating available from police stations across the city. In the past five months, Amdavadis have lost more than Rs 8 lakh daily on an average to fraud- sters. In the past 150 days, 90 cases of cheat- ing and breach of trust have been recorded at city police stations. In January, 19 cases of cheating were registered in the city, in February the number was 12, 22 in March, 17 in April and 20 cases were recorded till May 23. The loss to Amdavadis: Rs 12,47,56,000. One of the main reasons is the greed to make a fast buck. Promise of huge returns on investments, job offer in return for money, promise of college admission, lure of huge prize money, raising the credit card limit and assurance to get a visa are some of the ways in which fraudsters have cheated people of crores of rupees. EK KA TEEN SCHEME Zahir Rana fooled people to the tune of crores of rupees through Remo Marketing in 2003. He was jailed for it and thereafter came out and started a new company, Dorado Marketing Private Limited. Rana through his fraudulent schemes again lured people to invest in products that would be displayed at different malls, besides land which would fetch them 15-20 per cent returns. Subsequently, frauds by Ashok Jadeja, Abhay Gandhi, Imtiaz Saiyed, Wasim Saiyed and the latest involving the Thakkar brothers, Rajesh and Dinesh of Balaram Resorts, have come to light. Juhapura-based Irfan Arab who had invested around Rs 1.5 lakh in Rana’s schemes lost his money and sleep over it. Finally, he filed an application with the police commissioner against Rana. Arab said, “Rana convinced me and Vipul Rajput and Zahid Qureshi amfeedback@indiatimes.com PAGE 6 » File photo of victims of a visa scam who had gathered outside Navranpura police station TEMPERATURE MAX 42.4 | MIN 27.1 | HUMIDITY 19% FORECAST SKY WILL BE PARTLY CLOUDY | SUNRISE 0555 HRS | SUNSET 1919 HRS | SENSEX 16217 | NIFTY 4920 | GOLD 28825 | SILVER 54175 If we consider various cases of fraud in the past five months, residents of the city lost almost Rs 12.5 crore, all because the lure of lucre was too hard to resist Call :9227 9227 241 079 6190 61901 Ahmodabad :102-3-4, ATPArcade , Nr.

To help lone- ly elders socialise, a novel adult day care centre is being set up at Jeevan Sandhya Smruti, an old age home located on Bhagwat Vidyapeeth campus. The centre is for senior citizens who get bored because their family members are working or busy else- where throughout the day. “Families have become very busy. We invite elders, who feel left out, to come here and spend time with us,” said Kalpana Gandhi, co-ordinator of Jeevan Sandhya Smruti. The centre offers activities like singing, music, painting, knitting and expert lectures among others to keep the seniors occupied. “If there is a group of senior citizens who wish to go out for movies, we will provide support for that as well,” says Kalpana. The centre will be open for outsiders from 3 pm. The organisers are also planning a pick-up service in future. Pravin Sanghvi, trustee of Mumbadevi trust that runs the old age home, said, “Thirty years ago, we started the old age home. Now, any senior citizen can come in, take part in various fun activities and enjoy each other’s friendship.” A cting on the complaint filed by former faculty of National Institute of Design (NID) Deepa Chalke, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has issued a notice to the institute, seeking appropriate action in Chalke’s alleged sexual harassment case. The design school has also been given a copy of Chalke’s peti- tion. The Commission has directed NID Director Pradyumna Vyas to take appropriate measures on Chalke’s sexual harassment com- plaint and her subsequent termina- tion. The institute has been ordered to submit an ‘Action Taken Report’ within four weeks. The Commission had received a complaint from Chalke, alleging sexual harassment at work place and inaction by the authorities on March 7. Ahmedabad Mirror, on March 3, had reported how NID abruptly ter- minated the service of Chalke with- out assigning a reason. Insiders suspect the termination, which they term unlawful, could be the result of a sexual harassment complaint Chalke had filed against the warden of the boys’ hostel on Gandhinagar campus in November last year. The 38-year old single mother, who was appointed in NID’s Apparel Design and Merchandising Department at Gandhinagar on August 22, 2011, alleged in the let- ter, ‘Since the time I have joined, I am being subjected to discriminato- ry practices, and my previous com- plain has not made any difference. I have been subjected to unfair treat- ment’. Demanding a fair chance, Chalke had challenged the termination on February 23, but Vyas rejected her application. According to the two-year con- tract, her performance was to be reviewed on completion of one year.

But little do they know about the teenager’s medical condition who suffers from severe haemophilia. The brave boy, who has just cleared his class XII exam and aspires to be an engineer, wants to spread awareness of the disorder. “I was only 10-month-old when I was detected with haemophilia. My father tapped me on my chick and my face swelled. My parents took me to several doctors and hospitals but to no avail. Finally I was taken to V S Hospital where I was diagnosed with this bleeding disorder,” he said. For 38-year-old Prahar Trivedi, a professional photographer who suf- fers from a rare kind haemophilia, is an inspiration to all. Trivedi delivers motivation lectures and asks people to take up challenges of life. “I have a factor 10 deficiency which is considered very rare. In every lakh people, we find one haemophilic and among one lakh haemophilic, a person with my con- dition has been found. Because of this I constantly need blood plasma units,” said Trivedi who has been administered 37 blood plasma units between March 17 and May 25. “Red Cross offers plasma unit for Rs 250 at a subsidised rate. However, including other medical expenses, it costs me Rs 450. The condition is not curable and the treatment is very expensive,” he said. GUJARAT HAEMOPHILIA SOCIETY Trivedi’s father Dilip Trivedi founded Gujarat Haemophilia Society which has over 659 registered patients. Of these, 400 are in the city. “The society has been doing its job by helping patients get their factor at cheaper rate. But we need the gov- ernment help and aid to spread awareness of it. The treatment is very costly. A poor can’t afford it. The gov- ernment should provide financial help by subsidising factors,” he added. Dr Ashwin Patel, a haematologist and vice-president of Gujarat Haemophilia Society who offers hon- orary service at the organisation, said: “Unlike thalassaemia, there is a lack of awareness of this medical condi- tion among the masses. The state government should provide facilities and infrastructure required for the treatment. Though Rs 2 crore was set aside for haemophilia patients in an earlier assembly session, the situation has not changed much.” People who make donation to Gujarat Haemophilia Society get tax rebate, the doctor said. The government does provide free plasma in Civil Hospital but patients who live in far-flung areas have to travel to big cities for blood transfu- sion. Medical facilities for these patients should be made available at all district civil hospitals, he said. “There can be minor, moderate and severe haemophilia. Couple must undergo medical tests before mar- riage to avoid the occurrence of this medical condition in their kids,” Dr Patel said. Tyingknot?Getyour haemophiliatestdone T he Ahmedabad branch of Institute of Chartered Accountants of India in associ- ation with Ahmedabad Mirror has organised a career counselling workshop, ‘Chartered Accountant - Shapers of Modern India’ on May 27, from 10.30 am to 12 pm. The programme will be held at ICAI Bhavan, 123 Sardar Patel Colony, in Usmanpura. “The workshop is open free to all and general and science stream stu- dents who have passed XII board can attend it with their par- ents. It will discuss the career opportunities in India and abroad,” said ICAI Chairman, Ahmedabad Chapter, Jainik Vakil. A chartered accountant can join government service, public sector undertakings or can opt for a lucrative career in the private sector.

Haemophilia is a hereditary genetic disorder that impair the body's abili- ty to control blood clotting or coagu- lation, which is used to stop bleed- ing when a blood vessel is broken. Haemophilia A (clotting factor VIII deficiency) is the most common form of the disorder, present in about 1 in 5,000–10,000 male births. Haemophilia B (factor IX defi- ciency) occurs in around 1 in about 20,000–34,000 male births.

    • CITY www.ahmedabadmirror.com/city AhmedabadMirror SATURDAY, MAY 26, 2012 3 Britain’s concerns over the 2002 Gujarat riots have come in the way of it upgrading its engagement with the booming state in the near future, even as the coun- try expands its diplomatic network across India with new posts in Hyderabad and Chandigarh. Despite such development plans, there is no plan to upgrade the Ahmedabad office. It must be noted that Britain has a large diaspora of people of Gujarati-origin. A foreign office spokesman said, “Since the riots in 2002, in light of our concerns about human rights abuses which took place then, we have had no ministerial or senior offi- cial contact with senior polit- ical ranks of the Gujarat state government”. “We currently have a small locally staffed British Trade Office in Ahmedabad. We keep our position with regard to our representation in Gujarat under careful review,” the spokesman added. The expansion of two posts will take the number of UK posts in India to seven, mak- ing its presence in India the largest diplomatic network of any country. It has posts in Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore and the high com- mission in New Delhi. It also has trade office in Pune. “We have plans in time to add further UK staff. Each Deputy High Commissioner will be supported by a team of skilled locally employed staff focusing on trade and invest- ment, the political economy, knowledge economy, energy and low carbon opportuni- ties,” the spokesman further added. “We want a deeper and more sophisticated under- standing of India and emerg- ing powers on a range of issues including politics, culture, education and sports,” he added. PTI After a 7-km chase, two bootleggers were arrested with countrymade liquor worth Rs 32,000 near Revdi Bazaar in Kalupur on Friday. The accused were identified as Ramol resident Imtiaz Sheikh and Khokhra resi- dent Chirag Desai. Bapunagar PSI R J Jadeja and his team were patrolling near Approach Chowki in Bapunagar when they tried to intercept a black Scorpio. The driver did not stop. The cops gave chase. The men stopped near Revdi Bazaar when two of the SUV’s tyres burst. Cops found ‘potlis’ of liquor in 48 large bags. “They were ferrying liquor from Vasad near Vadodara to Hansa, a woman bootlegger, in Madhupura,” said cops. —AM 2002riotshamperUK expansioninGujaratLONDON G ujarat Public Service Commission (GPSC) on Friday declared results of main exami- nation held in September 2011 for posts of deputy mamlatdar and section officer. The pre- liminary exam was conducted in June last year. Nearly 4,500 candidates had cleared the same. Of these, a total of 948 stu- dents cleared the main exam. This is the first time GPSC has pointed out the mistakes made by students who did not clear the main exam. Interestingly, today GPSC is conducting main examination for other vacant posts. Tired of waiting for results of the main exam held last year, several candidates who had appeared for the same are appearing for this year’s main exam. According to sources, GPSC had earlier planned to release the results of both the main exams together.

Write to us at amscoop@indiatimes.com CITY www.ahmedabadmirror.com/city AhmedabadMirror SATURDAY, MAY 26, 2012 4 Travelling light Even as we kept our eyes peeled for new-momma Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at Cannes, we caught a slim- mer, trimmer and healthier Vikram Chatwal as the other surprise Indian this year. Chatwal, who attended the festival last year to promote a Mexcian film in which he did a bit role, had a more social agenda this time. The New York hotelier looked pretty much in control of his life once again as he attended a high-profile party with the likes of Nicky and Paris Hilton, guest-of-honour Heidi Klum and Alec Baldwin among other A-listers. But with his new supermodel girlfriend Angela Lindvall by his side. She did it. Aishwarya made her keenly anticipated appearance at Cannes, in an avatar that would not give her detractors too much to complain about. After the intense scrutiny and relentless criticism of her post-partum weight, the actor made her first media call in a hotel, looking chic and slim and dressed in an Angelo Katsapis outfit. While we know that most of her appearances so far have been cour- tesy the various brands she endorses, this year one of them, a cosmetic giant, has reportedly struck a rich deal with a news daily. In fact, her first so-called official interview has been packaged and pitched as an exclusive, which the brand’s market- ing team has been fiercely guarding. After her Angelo Katpasis appear- ance, Mrs Bachchan went for the much-talked Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla cream sari with chikankari work and antique gold embroidery (draped in a different way) for the red carpet. In a bid to hide all the flab, the Indian beauty was far too ‘undercover’! Meanwhile, her pictures have predictably sent her virtual world in a tizzy: this time the debate is over how exactly she managed to shed the excess baggage in such a short time. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t? ITDIDTURNOUTTOBE‘ROWDY’ With Rowdy Rathore’s release a week away, Amdavadis seem all set to welcome the Akshay Kumar-Sonakshi Sinha starrer in ‘rowdy’ style. Despite tight security at the promotional event of Rowdy Rathore, fans managed to rush and glance at the ‘Khiladi’ and ‘Dabanggi’. The unruly behaviour and excitement of fans was (mis)handled by the ‘well-built’ securitymen. Your vigilant diarist gets you this picture to give you an idea of all the rowdiness that took place at a city mall where people, including media, were left short of being mauled. To see the stars responsible for the frenzy, turn to page 10. After his misadventure with social networking, Sidhartha Mallya has reportedly checked out of the country for some well-recom- mended R&R. The diarist has learnt that Mallya Junior, who was set to take off for the US to pursue a career in acting post the IPL season, is now vacation- ing in Europe with his father. We hear there is some serious father-son talk on the cards, while the enfant terrible waits for the storm to blow over and grapple with the gag-order imposed by the company. In spiritual world they call it Vipasana. Chicmomma On Sunday, patrons at a Mumbai five star got an eyeful and more of a dapper Akshay Kumar dressed in a weather- defying all-black suit and matching acces- sories. The actor was in the company of a good looking Spaniard, the two Michelin- star chef Sergi Arola. The occasion was a hush-hush photo shoot the two rock stars did to promote Arola’s new restaurant at the hotel. Arola, who is known as much as for his passion for music as his flair for food, is all set to launch his eponymous restaurant here, after Barcelona and Paris. On this hot summer day, the chef who wears his stardom and his tattoos effort- lessly, got along famously with Akshay, who obviously takes his role as food show host quite seriously.

    • CITY www.ahmedabadmirror.com/city AhmedabadMirror SATURDAY, MAY 26, 2012 6 A hmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) is privatising its civic woes redressal system and computerising the process. The new system will be in place from August 15, according to officials. Under the system, AMC would outsource the redressal of civic problems to private companies. These parties would get contracts from AMC for solving problems per- taining to drainage, water, roads, cattle men- ace, street lights, door to dump facilities, ani- mal carcass (skeleton) removal among others. People would be required to lodge com- plaints at their zonal office. They will be pro- vided with a computer generated receipt that would contain name of the complainant, his address, name of the AMC official responsi- ble and the deadline for the resolution of issue. At present complainants are given blue, yellow or pink receipts. The existing system neither centralises the entire city’s complaint records nor does it put them completely into computer making them not readily accessi- ble. A system similar to MIS exists even now but only for the monsoon months. The MIS was implemented primarily in response to the failure of Jan Suvidha Scheme that was launched in South, West and New West Zones of city. The scheme was meant to have fast- tracked the resolution of civic problems, how- ever in practice complainants got response very late, sources said. “The best thing with the new MIS is that the entire city’s record would be accessible to me at the click of a mouse. It would be very easy to keep track of the number of com- plaints coming from different areas of city. Besides, those officers who are not perform- ing and solving the problems till the deadline will be questioned and asked for the reasons for delay. This would ensure efficiency and serve people’s interests,” said Municipal Commissioner Guruprasad Mohapatra.

He fooled me and others with huge promises. All of us lost a lot of our hard- earned money.” CREDIT CARD FRAUD The arrest of Vishal Sharma, a member of a Delhi-based gang that specialised in credit card fraud uncovered this latest method of cheating people. As per their modus operandi, a member disguised as a bank executive would come to a per- son’s house saying that the bank has raised his/her credit limit. They would then cut their credit card into two before their own eyes, saying that a new card would be delivered at their place. They would then take away the card pieces, mend it and withdraw money from the person’s account. According to a complaint filed at Navrangpura police sta- tion on April 11, an AMC employee was cheated in this way and Rs 51,800 from his account. Superintendent of Police (economic offences cell), CID Crime, R S Bhagora confirmed an increase in the number of cheating cases. “Yes, cheating cases have gone up. More cases of ‘ek ka teen’ have come to light. These are mainly due to people’s greed. Cases of land fraud have also come to our knowledge. We have caught around 30 fraudsters in the past six months and are continuing our drive to nab these cheats.” INCIDENTS OF CHEATING May 22: Gaurangsinh Chudasama of Gulab Tower in Ghatlodia was promised huge profits in share trading. Chudasama invested Rs 3 crore in shares as told by fraudsters Mithil Shah and Rajiv Desai. Chudasama lost all his money and filed a complaint with Sola police. May 9: In Vatva, a woman was cheated of Rs 1.9 lakh with the promise of an AUDA house. May 3: Kamla Gurnani lodged a complaint with Naranpura police of cheating against Hariram Vaghwani and his three sons — Naresh, Hemendra and Manish who took Rs 1 lakh and land worth Rs 4 lakh from her by promising to get rid of her husband’s drinking and gambling habit through rituals. However, after aan eight-year wait, she realised she was cheated. April 28: Gyan Badlani, a resi- dent of Naranpura lodged a complaint that he was cheat- ed by two persons, Dr Vikas Kulkarni and Satish Salve of Mumbai, who promised to grant him MDS degree certificate from Maharastra University. After taking Rs 7.5 lakh from Badlani, both accused fled. April 20: Mumbai-based gang had promised an Ellisbridge- based businessman huge returns by investing in business and defrauded him of Rs 1.75 crore. March 23: A person purchased cloth worth Rs 15 lakh from a cloth merchant in Kalupur and did not pay money to him. March 3: Dr Mukesh Brahmbhatt lodged a com- plaint with Karanj police that he was cheated by Shyam Yadav of Bengaluru and Rahul Bharat of Mumbai. They prom- ised to get his son medical admission in Mumbai for Rs 4 lakh. They also cheated one Bharatbhai of Rs 4 lakh and fled with money. Feb 23: Pratapsinh Rao got a call on February 8 from an unknown number. The caller said he had won a prize money of Rs 10 lakh in a lucky draw. Rao was asked to deposit Rs 20,000 in an account number as deposit and processing fee and wait for the grand prize in three weeks. Rao waited for three weeks and then found that he was cheated. He filed a com- plaint with Madhavpura police. »PAGE 1 Amdavadischeated ofRs8.3lakhdaily TRIO WHO CHEATED TRADERS ARRESTED Three members of a gang that operated in different districts and cheated businessman to the tune of lakhs of rupees were arrested on Thursday night by Vastrapur police. Three more members — Bharat Patel, Chetan and Sunil — are at large. Around 25 cases of fraud across the state have been detected. The gang took godowns on rent and then disguised as businessmen they would approach wholesale dealers of rice, wheat, tobacco, betelnut etc. They would give a bulk order and get the stock deliv- ered at the godown. After hoodwinking the driver, they would then escape with the booty. On May 17, last year, Yash Kothari of Ms Kothari & Company in Mad- hupura market received a call for delivery of 910 kilo of betelnut costing Rs 1.48 lakh at a godown in Thaltej. With the promise that the entire amount would be handed over on delivery, a truck-full of stock was sent. The stock was unloaded in the presence of a 19- year-old boy. The boy then took the driver a little distance away from the godown, telling him that the buyer would come a while with the money. He then left to get tea for the driver. When the boy did not turn up for quite some time, the driver went to the godown only to realise that the stock had vanished. Kothari filed a complaint with Vastrapur police. Investigations re- vealed that the godown was taken on rent. The police kept a watch on the landline number from where Kothari was called. They traced a mobile number that regularly called on that number and zeroed in on Amin alias Kalubhai Ramchandani, 30, resident of Harshnagar, Patan. He led the police to two other members, Bipin Thakkar and his son, Hardik, 19, also from Patan. Amin used to send Bipin to different businessmen and bring back visiting cards after inquiring with them. Amin would then call the dealer and place a huge order, which they would be asked to deliver at a rented godown. They would then escape with the stock and sell it to someone at a lower price. The gang members have defrauded traders in Rajkot, Modasa, Deesa, Vijapur, Surat and Ahmedabad. Police have recovered 520 kilo of betelnut that was stolen from Kothari. On hearing the news of the arrest, traders who were cheat- ed by the members gathered at Vastrapur police station.

Vinay Prajapati (28), who recently complet- ed his masters in fashion technology, has designed a trolley equipped with wireless and radio frequency identifi- cation (RFID) technologies, which can automatically detect, receive, save and transmit product information to com- plete the billing process. This is aimed at enhancing customer satisfaction by reducing time consumption and also cutting cost of services and inventory management at the billing counter. “The inspiration for this trolley came from my own shopping experi- ence. No customer enjoys standing in a queue to get the billing done. It is sheer waste of time. The RFID trolley helps in fast shopping and checkout. The trolley automatically calculates the worth of the good inside it, thus minimising the time at the billing counter. It also has a navigator, which will guide the customers to different sections of the store. This will help attracting customers to that particular store and help the retailers in increas- ing footfalls,” said Prajapati. The trol- ley will also help the retailers to track the buying behaviour of customers. Prajapati’s research concentrates on automation of retail process that involves customers. He said, “One can save on man power required to man- age a retail store if RFID is imple- mented at item level. More over RFID can automate and reduce human errors at payment counters. It makes the process efficient.” “If all goes fine I will make advancements in present proposal and instal prototype in an apparel or fashion accessories outlet and record customers’ review. It will help me prove that time is indeed money,” Prajapati added. Shraddha.Singh @timesgroup.com Vinay Prajapati Bharatiya Janata Party leaders LK Advani and Sushma Swaraj did not attend the key party rally in Mumbai on Friday evening due to prior engagements, party leaders said, denying that their absence was due to any discontent. The party said the absence of the two leaders was known much earli- er. It also showed an invite of the rally, which did not mention Advani’s name. “Advani’s schedule was fixed ear- lier so he is not there and Sushma Swaraj has to attend a programme in Ghaziabad on Saturday morn- ing,” said party spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman. Asked if both the leaders decided not to attend the rally as they were unhappy with the change in the party constitution that would allow a second term to party president Nitin Gadkari, Sitharaman said: “There has been no discontent over the party resolution and he (Advani) is fully with us... it (any discontent) is all in the minds of the people.” Another party leader said: “It was known since long that we will pass an amendment to the constitution, and it is not for any particular leader. It will benefit all presidents at state and district level as well. Why would there be a sudden dis- content over something that is known for so long?” Party sources added that Advani was not well and suffering from a throat infection. He had, however, addressed the valedictory function of the meet before leaving. Sushma Swaraj also denied spec- ulation that there was a rift among party leaders. “I respect and honour all deci- sions of the party. Please do not draw any other conclusions. I must reach Delhi tonight (Friday night) because I have to leave early morn- ing for an important function in UP tomorrow (Saturday). I cannot attend tomorrow’s (Saturday) func- tions unless I take an early flight to Delhi,” she posted on micro-blog- ging site Twitter. SENIOR LEADERS UNHAPPY WITH NITIN GADKARI The clarifications came after specu- lations of serious cracks in the top leadership did the rounds. Advani’s non-unavailability was seen as his unhappiness with Gadkari getting the unprecedented second consecu- tive three-year term. Gadkari’s term will now end in 2015 which means that the party will go to the 2014 Lok Sabha elec- tion under him, undermining Advani’s role. Advani, many believe, has not yet ruled himself out as the prime ministerial candidate for BJP. Incidentally, many senior leaders wanted change in presidentship after the patry’s poor show in the five state assembly elections. BJP had performed badly in UP and Punjab where its seat count went down and lost power in Uttarakhand. Goa provided the sil- ver lining where it defeated Congress. Gadkari’s decision to bring Uma Bharati from Madhya Pradesh to lead the party in UP did not pay off. Besides, reinducting former party general secretary Sanjay Joshi and putting him in charge of polls did not go well with his adversary Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. AGENCIES Vinay plans to instal a prototype at one of the retail outlets and get customer feedback L K Advani, Sushma’s absence pre-decided; there is no rift: BJPAmendmenttoextendpresident’stermwasknownforlong,saysspokesperson MODI MAY BE IN BJP PARLIAMENTARY BOARD The new-found bon homie between Nitin Gadkari and Narendra Modi could see the Gujarat chief minister getting into the party’s Parliamentary Board soon. Indications are that Gadkari could induct Modi into the powerful organ of the par- ty following the recent coming together of the two that seems to have upset quite a few equations. Asked whether any party chief minister could get into the Parlia- mentary Board, a veiled reference to Modi, BJP spokesperson Ravishankar Prasad said, “BJP president has discretionary powers and no one objects to it.” Only yesterday, Gadkari is believed to have extracted the resignation of Sanjay Joshi from the national executive at the behest of Modi. Today, Modi and Gadkari reached the stage together at a public meeting following the national executive here, displaying their new bonding. Gadkari had come to the venue earlier but waited for Modi to arrive so that they could take the podium together. PTI Sushma gave the rally a miss because she had to reach Delhi on Friday night, while Advani didn’t attend due to throat infection MUMBAI
    • CITY www.ahmedabadmirror.com/city AhmedabadMirror SATURDAY, MAY 26, 2012 9 T he state board is not the one always committing errors in question papers. Such presti- gious institutes like IITs could also go wrong at times. A week before the result of IIT-JEE exam was announced, Vijay Pratima Mittal, a chemistry teacher running a private coaching centre in Rajasthan, had made representations with regards to error in the answer key of chemistry paper. It has been more than 15 days but she has not received any reply. Dr Mittal wrote to the special sec- retary, technical education in the Ministry of HRD and the organising chairman of IIT-JEE drawing their attention to the error in the answer key. Dr Mittal claims, “The answer key of JEE 2012 was published on May 7 on the website of IITs. I observed a mistake in the answer of question 28 in paper 2, section II (chemistry). Option (A) has been shown as the correct answer which is wrong. The correct answer is option (B).” 5.25 LAKH STUDENTS AFFECTED Arguing that it affected 5.25 lakh stu- dents who took IIT-JEE, she said the answer keys should be corrected. “Question 28 is of four marks and due to wrong answer the merit of the students will be greatly affected. It is very much possible that the students who appeared in JEE-2012 are not taking any action about this mistake because they believe that IIT-JEE authorities are highly qualified and they cannot make any mistake. They also feel that the answers given by the IIT-JEE must be 100 per cent cor- rect, but the authorities had already accepted their mistake in question number 23 of this section and they agreed to give bonus marks to all students.” An Ahmedabad-based chemistry teacher Aalap Shah, too, is con- vinced with the correct answer being option B. He said, “In the question, the nec- essary condition for hydrolysis of cyanide group into the acid is not given, therefore, the nearest answer should be B instead of A.” Error in IIT-JEE chemistry paper; profs mumARajasthanchemistryteacherhasmaderepresentationstoIIT-JEEauthoritiespointingouterrorintheanswerkeyofchemistrypaper,buttilldateshehasnotreceivedanyreply Tanushree Bhatia & Dhwani Pathak Dave amfeedback@indiatimes.com energy saWigsvalue,and theey CSICU -Sn8NK( Ecenavi Dual Sensor overter Technology Canoe S (air purtiucatron system) Available in 1.0,1.5 &2.OTe r Ps, 54,990 Model.

After a big tussle among fans at a city mall on Friday, people were able to get a glimpse of khiladi-turned-rowdy Akshay Kumar and hischhammak chhallo Sonakshi Sinha who were in aapnu Amdavad to promote their next, Rowdy Rathore. The soon-to-be-released film has Akshay Kumar ‘back in action’. When asked why the film is a must-watch, the actor said, “Everyone has a ‘rowdy’ side to them and there is everything — action, romance, comedy and lots of masti.” Dabangg-girl Sonakshi, dressed in a parrot greensari (she was in character!) seemed confident throughout and declined any plans to lose weight as she believes in staying fit. The couple displayed sparkling chemistry and kept the audience in splits with their funny one-liners. The film, directed by Prabhu Deva and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, has Khiladi Kumar in a double role. The film is a remake of Telugu-film Vikramarkudu. The actors also entertained fans with the famous chinta-ta-chita-chita step from their film.

Besides dance, the event also had children dressed as politicians waving the Indian flag at the Gujarat University Ground on Friday evening. There were play performances and traditional music that welcomed visitors. A city-based dance academy held a performing arts workshop at Natarani for children on Thursday.

    • AhmedabadMirror SPORT 14 SATURDAY, MAY 26, 2012 www.ahmedabadmirror.com/sports am.sports@indiatimes.com FINALLY,INDIALAUGHLAST After a thrilling win against South Korea, courtesy a last- minute goal by SK Uthappa, it was diffi- cult for India hockey coach Michael Nobbs to hide his excitement. India edged past Korea 2-1 in the Azlan Shah tourna- ment, having suffered a 1-5 defeat against New Zealand earlier. “I’m obviously delighted with the re- sult. The victory from a last-minute goal made my heart’s pacemaker began functioning again,” said Nobbs. “We made a silly error to concede the penalty corner that gave the equaliser to South Korea. That was part of the mistakes we committed in the second half,” he added. The Australian was not happy with the way his wards played in the second- half but said the win was good gift for him. “We played according to plan in the first half, but in the second half we did not play as we wanted to. We did not stick out our plan in the second ses- sion, but did well in patches,” he said. “I was really angry at the mistake that gave away the equaliser. But the last-minute goal was a nice present.” On Thursday, the coach had ripped into his squad over its pummelling by New Zealand, saying much work re- mained before the former power was ready for the London Games. Nobbs had especially harsh words for his defence, calling it “awful” for leaking what he called easy goals by the Black Sticks on the first day of the Malaysian tournament. “We were really bad at the back. Everything we talked about and prac- tised in training was forgotten,” Nobbs told reporters in the northern Malaysian city of Ipoh, site of the annu- al hockey tournament. The seven-team tournament which also includes Great Britain, Pakistan, Argentina, South Korea and Malaysia is an important last chance for teams to tune up and hone line-ups before the Olympics in July. India dominated Olympic hockey from the 1920s to the 1950s. A recent run of good form has raised hopes of a strong result in London, with much of the credit going to Nobbs. But Nobbs said the team went back to “our old style of play” against the Ki- wis, accusing defenders of letting their marks get away, and singling out Rupin- der Pal Singh and V Raghunath.

AGENCIES Nobbsecstatic afterclosewin overSKoreaS K Uthappa’s last-minute deflection off a Tushar Khandekar diagonal cross earned India a 2-1 victory over South Korea in the Azlan Shah Cup hockey, marking a rare occasion when it was not the Indian defence wilting in the closing stages. The winning goal, on a move down the left flank, was the culmination of a counter-attack that began with the Indian custodian Bharat Chetri bringing off a fine save at the top of the circle at the other end of the pitch. Chetri had to rush out to dis- possess Korean striker Jang Jong- Hyun, who was sprinting in unmarked with the Indian defend- ers nowhere in the frame. The brisk counter brought the smiles back to faces of the Indian squad, and coach Michael Nobbs said, “It made my heart pacemaker resume functioning after making a silly error in conceding an equalis- er just minutes earlier.” The Indian defence, which held its ground in the first session by clos- ing out the gaps that resulted in an embarrassing 1-5 defeat at the hands of New Zealand just 24 hours earlier, seemed to be giving the game away toward the end after enjoying a lead for most of the match. Ace penalty corner shooter Sandeep Singh placed a drag-flick into the roof of the cage in the 11th minute to give India the lead. That was the only penalty corner earned by India in the match, where close man-to-man marking confined the first half’s pro- ceedings mostly to the midfield. With increasing urgency in their raids, South Korea came back strong- ly to exert pressure on the Indian defence after the breather. Indians had a close shave when a penalty corner shot rebounded off the cross- piece and once when an unmarked Korean defender, in a rare show of exuberance, sent a wild shot wide when in a goal-scoring position. The Koreans managed to draw parity in the 66th minute with an accurate penalty corner flick from Nam Hyun-Woo, whose low shot went into the goal off Manpreet Singh’s stick. India were clearly under pressure for most of the second session, dur- ing which coach Nobbs said they failed to stick to the game-plan, but the last gasp move, starting from the top of the Indian circle had them celebrating. “We’re continu- ing to make silly errors, and one of such mistakes conceded the penal- ty corner that earned South Korea the equaliser,” said Nobbs. Earlier, some familiarity with the Korean tactics seemed to have helped India in narrowing down the yawning gaps that were evident in their previous outing. The match also marked an impressive return to international hockey for half-back Gurbaj Singh, who of late has been on the side- lines after his impressive show in the World Cup two years ago. During his recent period of recu- peration, Gurbaj missed the Olympic Qualifiers and also the recent four-nation tournament in London that was a test event for Olympic games facilities. NEW ZEALAND SLAM FIVE MORE New Zealand continued their goal- scoring spree to post a runaway 5-2 victory over Pan-Amercian champi- ons Argentina, forcing as many as 10 penalty corners in stamping their authority. The New Zealanders, who had squandered several scoring chances earlier in the game, got their act together with three goals in the last 13 minutes of play to surge to the top of the points table. New Zealand have six points from two matches, followed Pakistan with three from one outing and India with three from two games. Argentina took an early lead through a third-minute field goal by Lucas Cammareri, who shot in after sidestepping New Zealand goal- keeper Kyle Pontifex. Phil Burrows drew parity for New Zealand in the 32nd minute on a pass from Simon Child, and Richard Petherick converted a penalty cor- ner in the 44th minute to put the Black Sticks 2-1 ahead. Argentina was back on level in the 53rd minute through Lucas Vila’s rasping drive. Then came the three-goal burst from New Zealand as Hayward (57th minute), Shay Neal (59th) and Arun Panchia (64th) made entries on the score-sheet. Argentina have lost both their matches. MALAYSIA HOLD BRITAIN Two scintillating field goals in the last three minutes of play earned Malaysia a 3-3 draw with Great Britain, the highest ranked team in the tournament that turned out for the first game. Britain drew first blood in the fifth minute on a field goal from Glenn Kirkman, and Azlan Misron draw level for Malaysia in the 10th minute. Field goals from Ashley Jackson (20th minute) and Rob Moore (35th minute) put Britain 3- 1 ahead and they were heading for a victory until Saari produced two sparkling goals in the 67th and 68th minutes.

    • SPORT www.ahmedabadmirror.com/sport AhmedabadMirror SATURDAY, MAY 26, 2012 15 England dismissed West Indies’ mainstay Shivnarine Chanderpaul as the tourists’ collapse continued on the first day of the sec- ond Test at Trent Bridge here on Friday. The West Indies were 154 for six at tea, with Marlon Samuels 41 not out and captain Darren Sammy, who’d won the toss and batted with the ground bathed in sunny condi- tions and blue skies overhead, unbeat- en on 11. Chanderpaul was lbw for the sec- ond time in as many innings to Graeme Swann. Left-hander Chanderpaul, playing back, had made 46 when Swann’s appeal was rejected by umpire Asad Rauf. But it was no surprise when England captain Andrew Strauss reviewed the decision. Replays showed the ball would have hit the stumps and Chanderpaul had to go after more than two hours at the crease featuring nine fours. AFP BRIEF SCORES (at the time of going to press): WI 204/6 (M Samuels 77*, S Chanderpaul 46, K Powell 33; J Anderson 2/31, S Broad 2/49) vs ENG I t was a loss that would haunt Delhi Daredevils skipper Virender Sehwag for a long time as Chennai Super Kings cashed in on their luck to reach the final of the fifth season of Indian Premier League in Chennai on Friday. When a well below par Murali Vijay smashed the tournament’s fastest century to propel Chennai Super Kings to an imposing 222 for five, it was all but over for Daredevils, a pre-tournament favourite. While Vijay’s innings surely deserved attention, what was surpris- ing was the decision making of Sehwag — not so long ago touted as one of the replacement for Mahender Singh Dhoni for a struggling Team India. While in the course of tournament Chennai Super Kings’ skipper Dhoni showed why he is considered the best, Sehwag appeared to have lost it as the tournament progressed. In the last match, a loss against Kolkata Knight Riders, it was his deci- sion to hold back the experience of Ross Taylor until it was all but over and his decision to go with four pac- ers came under scrutiny. On Friday, Sehwag had the audac- ity to drop his best fast bowler — tour- nament’s leading wicket-taker Morne Morkel — for Andre Russel. While critics may point to Russel’s all-round ability — especially when Irfan Pathan had to sit out due to injury — his credentials are yet to be established. Sehwag then left everyone bewil- dered with his decision to hand the ball to offie Sunny Gupta who was playing his first IPL match this season. The youngster was duly milked — 47 from three overs — as Chennai made merry with the Delhi bowlers. Vijay, who was run out on the last ball of the innings after scoring 113, took a mere 51 balls to reach the magic landmark when he flicked Varun Aaron off his pads behind square at the M A Chidambaram Stadium. CSK’s total was also the high- est in this edition of the league. While he had bludgeoned 13 fours and four sixes before reaching the cen- tury, Vijay found the fence two more times following that after Daredevils skipper Virender Sehwag invited the hosts to bat on winning the toss. It was never an easy chase and the early fall of David Warner and Sehwag, who had dropped himself in the batting order, only made the task difficult. Mahela Jayawardene fought hard but Delhi fell short by 87 runs. AGENCIES BRIEF SCORES: Chennai Super Kings 222/5 in 20 overs (M Vijay 113, D Bravo 33; V Aaron 2/63) Delhi Daredevils 136/16.5 in overs (M Jayawardene 55) Roger Federer on Friday backed six-time champion Rafael Nadal to shatter Novak Djokovic’s historic bid to become the first man in 43 years to hold all four Grand Slam titles. World number one Djokovic already has the Wimbledon, US Open and Australian Open crowns in his possession and a first French Open triumph in two weeks’ time would make him the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to complete the sweep. But Federer believes that it is Nadal, chasing an unprecedented seventh Roland Garros title, who will be making history here, and not the Serb. “Rafa is the favourite for me,” said Federer, the 2009 champi- on in Paris. “I think he lost only two sets between Rome, Monte Carlo, and Barcelona, so that’s a pretty good start. “Then he’s playing for his seventh title, so no discussion. We’re crazy to even talk about this. Some people might say he’s not the favourite, but to me he’s the favourite. I know how incredible he can be here in Roland Garros. “As for Novak, with all his results lately, he’s one of the big favourites. Likewise for me with everything I accomplished. But for me it would be Rafa, Novak, and me in third position.” Of the seven men to win all the four majors in their careers, only Don Budge and Laver (twice) have held all four at the same time. Since Laver’s 1969 achievement, only Pete Sampras, Federer and Nadal have had opportunities to complete a non-calendar year Grand Slam.

At M G Science Institute ground, southpaw Rushi Panchal top-scored with a 63-ball 69 that included one six and seven fours while opener Ajay Vachetta slammed a 41-ball 63, with one six and seven fours, to help Rajyogi post a challenging 266 for eight from 40 overs. For Royal, Harsh Patel took five wickets with his leg-spin. However, Royal batsmen came a cropper against the left-arm spin attack of Rajyogi, with Harsh Shashti and Sneh Shah picking up four wick- ets each while Asav Panchal added two more, to be bowled out for 79 in 26 overs. Rajyogi will now wait for the win- ners of the second semi-final between Gujarat Cricket Institute and Sardar Patel Institute of Sports, which will be played today. C hintan Gaja scored a half- century but it was a whirl- wind innings from Varshil Shah that helped Gujarat Cricket Institute (GCI) beat Sant Kabir School by three wickets to reach the final of Somabhai Hadial Under-17 Cricket Tournament on Friday. Electing to bat, opener Kathan Patel and Raj Majethia stitched a 100-run partnership for the second wicket as Sant Kabir posted 177 for six from 30 overs. Kathan top-scored with a 70-ball 58 that included seven boundaries and a six while Raj scored 56 off 52 balls with eight fours for Sant Kabir. For GCI, Deep Pipalia and Aditya Patel took two wickets each. It was a disappointing chase for GCI who lost their openers by the ninth over. Unperturbed, Chintan took the attack to the opposition with a 63-ball 69 that included eight fours and a six. While Karthik Khatri (23) made a useful contribution, Karan Radhani brought urgency to the innings with 11-ball 20 before Varshil’s 10-ball 22 sealed it for GCI. For Sant Kabir, Suraj Sekhawat took three wickets while Kavish Panchal added two more. GCI will now await the winner of the second semi-final between KCC and SPCT that will be played today. A n impressive bowling per- formance backed by some dominating batting helped Sahajanand CC (SCC) beat Universal Cricket Academy (UCA) book their final berth in Sardar Patel Institute of Sports Under-15 Cricket Tournament on Friday. It was never easy for UCA after deciding to bat first at L M College of Pharmacy ground as they kept losing wickets at regular interval. Only opener Raj Shah offered some resistance with a 75-ball 46 as Harshal Kuntar rattled UCA batting with a four wicket haul. Though Harshal could not do much with the bat, fellow opener Atithya Rathod hit an unbeaten 78- ball 68 to guide SCC through in 34 overs. He first had a 75-run second wicket stand with Bhavin Engle, who hit eight fours in his 67-ball 46, before adding another 84 runs for the unfinished third wicket with Kshitij Patel (31*, 54b, 3x4) to help SCC register an easy win.

    • T he walled city has finally evolved into a major booming metro, progress- ing in terms of real estate, infrastructure and standard of living. While once referred to as the city within its walls, in the recent times, the new areas have added tremendous growth to protracting the realty picture. Ahmedabad has been in the lime light for its superior infrastructure and good quality of life. So far the real estate market is con- cerned; the city still holds immense potential for both residential and commercial markets. With the tag line of, 'the best city to live in', Ahmedabad had obtained an added advantage by all means. With treacherous pouring of new builders, tie-up projects of local realtors with outside developers, seeping in of new schemes with ultra modern amenities and the constant effort to improvise hi-tech facilities, Ahmedabad is at its peak in the real estate segment. One of the fastest developing cities, Ahmedabad is popular- ized for its infra- structural vibrancy. A rising centre of education, IT hub and scientific industries, Ahmedabad depicts a very strong property picture which is likely to last for decades down the line. Still more with this growth, the city progresses to become a major cultural and com- mercial heart of Gujarat and much of the western India. Ahmedabad is tagged to be one of the three Indian cities to prosper and grown in the new age of urbanization, adding a wing of realty growth to it. Not only new buyers make a beeline for prop- erty investment here, but also numer- ous foreign companies have set up bases in and around the city. The real estate development in not to be proved as far as Ahmedabad is concerned. One look in and around the city suffices. Development of new flyovers, maintenance and repairing of old bridges as well as navigation of new BRTS routes is a sign of real infra- structural growth in the city. Ahmedabad offers a mix of product categories com- prising of residential apartments, b u n g a - lows, row houses, plotted schemes, weekend plots as well as retail and commercial spaces. The city has a very specified yet varied range of real- ty products widely categorised as res- idential, commercial, institutional and entertainment zones. In a way, the city is prospering to turn in to a well-planned unit. Side by side, the government is doing its level best to turn this city into prime time location by all means. Endowed with all the features essential and ideal for growth, Ahmedabad has seen some major developments take place. Key projects in the form of SEZs, hotels, integrated townships; gated com- munities as well as specialty townships such as financial prod- ucts townships and IT corridors have come up in a big way. The city is well connected, internally as well as externally through its elaborate transit systems, adding to its commercial value. The Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) started in 2009, has even won the USA International Sustainable Transport Award. The last decade has seen Ahmedabad transform into an urban modernity of inter- national standards. The expansion of Ahmedabad M u n i c i p a l Corporation lim- i t s , has also affected in the real estate growth, positively. New upcoming areas especially offer wide variety, amenity and even a moderate rate with good appreciation values. Ahmedabad is turning into a modern commercial hub, bringing in the best of business-world serenity. The state- of-the-art offices, arcades and corpo- rate houses have added to the luxury along with the required facilities. AhmedabadMirror | SATURDAY, MAY 26, 2012 |18A CONSUMER CONNECT INITIATIVE Outofthewalls D ecor around the pool area can make a lot of differ- ence in enhancing the beauty and look of the landscape. However, the factors cru- cial to the design of a poolside land- scape have to be kept in mind. Adorn the area with plants, and fix- tures in bright colours complement- ing the blue of the water to extend a harmonious look to the landscape RELAXATION NOOKS A snack counter by the pool to enjoy light snacks and refreshments is a nice way to relax. The main rea- son for having a snack counter near the pool is to provide easy access to refreshments after a swim. The design for this space has to be well planned, as it can become a strong focal point. This counter has to also blend in with a lot of elements in the landscape like the pergolas, the lawn area, the pool and a concrete patio. This addition to the pool area can be made without altering the general design pattern of the land- scape. It can vastly expand the design potential of this space. The counter can either be stand-alone teak, oak, wood-inlay table, or a counter with open shelves below for storage. These spaces can include refinements such as wine racks and refrigerated drawers. FURNITURE A wicker deck lounge chair is a good start. Cushions are optional, since you would not want them to get wet. A perforated metal magazine rack or a side table can also be placed. A tea cart or a bar trolley will add to the ease of relaxing here. Garden benches, armchairs, din- ing and patio tables, and planters should be made of hardwood. Stylish, durable and comfortable, this kind of furniture will make your pool area a good relaxation retreat. An elegant chaise lounge chair is per- fect for poolside, on a deck or porch. It is both practical and functional. GARDEN DECOR A polyester umbrella is light in colour and adds a bright spot of cheerfulness to alfresco dining. Planters having a slatted bottom panel to place a pot within the planter for a seasonal change of flowers are a good way to enhance your garden.

    • Several areas in Ahmedabad have boomed wonderfully in the recent years. The prices of flats and individ- ual houses have hiked up enormously, giving an added advantage to the buy- ers and sellers both. The property prices of high rise flats in Prahladnagar, Judges Bungalows and surrounding areas have reached 1 crore. At the same time, huge bungalows are available in these rates in Bopal, Ghuma, Silaj, S.P. ring road and other new locations far off. Ahmedabad also had a diversified section in terms of rates varying due to the proximity of distance and basic and ultra amenities in and around the area. The real estate market in Ahmedabad is on a high. Being the largest city of Gujarat and the seventh largest Metropolitan City of India, Ahmedabad proves to be a viable option for investing in properties of all kind Moreover, Ahmedabad proves to be an excellent destination for invest- ment in Industrial Property due to thriving Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industries. Those interested in Commercial property can also choose Ahmedabad as a profitable avenue as many foreign companies have set up their sales offices in Ahmedabad in the recent years. The city's infrastructure is in its modernization phase and the completion of Sardar Sarovar Project of dams and canals has improved the supply of potable water and electricity for the city, thus making investment in properties a very profitable option. The construction activities and new real estate projects in Ahmedabad have pushed property rates to new highs. As a location of property invest- ment, Ahmedabad certainly has good prospects in store for prospective investors. Ahmedabad being a big city and expanding day by day builders here get more opportunities to build more hi-tech buildings. As the entry market for real estate builders is opened with easy entry, real estate market faces cut-to-cut competition, and hence customers and investors are benefited from the same. This sce- nario appeals to be a customer driven market Out of many metro cities, the real estate market in Ahmedabad is booming since last decade. This real estate market is top choice for Investors and NRIs. They are confi- dent about the stability and higher returns of the investments. Land rates have hiked like anything in areas like Satellite, C.G. Road, Vastrapur and S.G. Highway with never ending demand for residential and commer- cial lands. The hiked prices of fuel, downfall of the stock markets recent- ly has not affected the real estate mar- ket at all. This proves that the real estate market in Ahmedabad is a good choice to make a long- term invest- ments. The city has grown largely and the limits have been redefined now. AUDA (Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority) limits have been increased to make sure that the new property construction is done systematically and that the basic infra- structural development of roads, streetlights, water, drainage, gardens is available to the residents of the expanding city. T he mercury is rising and people are thinking up ways to keep their homes cool. With con- stant load-shedding turning on that air-conditioner could be a rarity. There are ingenious ways to keep your home cool the natural and sim- ple way. ROOF: Since about a third of the heat shines in through the roof, painting the roof with a reflective coating could har- ness the heat. Dark coloured roofs absorb more heat so painting the roof in light shades can stall the heat build-up to a certain extent. WINDOWS: About 40 percent of heat comes in through the windows. Reflective win- dow coatings are one way of keeping off the heat. Besides cutting off the glare from the sun, this kind of sun control protects the upholstery, drapes and carpets from fading. WALLS: Although the colour of walls is not as significant as that of the roof, it affects the degree of heat coming in. Walls painted in light shades weath- er the heat better on sides which receive maximum sunlight. PLANTS: A natural way to keep your home and surroundings cool and fresh is with plants. Potted plants located strategi- cally inside the house and kept con- stantly wet and watered can consid- erably reduce heat indoors. Well- located deciduous trees on the eastern and western sides of the house are a sensible option. A moist lawn can also cool the place around the house. LOUVRES: The adjustable slats of modern lou- vres are making them more popular than traditional shades. Louvres can have either horizontal or vertical slats and can be installed from the inside or the outside of windows. MATS: Ethnic mats woven from 'khus' roots are a natural way of keeping the home cool through the summer. However, the mats have to be kept constantly moist for a greater cooling effect. SHADES: Both exterior and interior shades are effective in staving off the harsh sun- light. Before deciding on the kinds of shading options, consider the long- term or short term use as well as the ventilation aspect. Exterior shades include awnings and canopies, shut- ters and louvres. Awnings are the best bet considering they block direct heat. AhmedabadMirror | SATURDAY, MAY 26, 2012 |20 SUMMER MAKEOVER 'Cement' - a building block of ever lasting homes Herearesometipsforacoolandfreshhomethissummer C rystals are useful to energize any area of your home. So, to clear away any unwanted energies it is essential to clean them regularly. Crystals and gemstones should always be cleansed before being used for any sort of healing or therapy work. Crystals absorb a wide range of vibrations, right from electricity and magnet- ism to sound - even emo- tions. They absorb vibra- tions, be they positive or negative, from the environ- ment. However, there are a few crystals which do not absorb or store negative ener- gies and that's why they do not require any cleansing. These crystals are super seven, citrine, selenite, etc. Each new crystal should be washed before use, with the exception of a few water-sol- uble minerals. Some of the easy cleansing methods are with salt and water, although salt water is not good for soft and porous crystals. If you are not sure about the struc- ture of the crystal it is better to choose other methods as salt water will damage the surface of many softer stones. It is said that salt water is a medium for clear- ing crystal energies. This method is very effective but often it can be difficult to remove all traces of salt from the crystal and salt water can percolate into the structure of a few crystals and cause them to break. Calcite, halite, opal, turquoise, mica and lots of other stones can- not be cleansed well with salt water. Another method to cleanse crystal is to hold the stones in cold running water and then leave them to dry. You can also use a little soapy water to cleanse the dust and fingerprints from the crystal. Water will also cleanse your stones of energy imbalances. EARTH BURIAL: This is very effective way to cleanse and heal the crystal. In your garden or garden pot, bury the crystal for four to seven days. Do not forget to mark the place where you bury the crystal. SMUDGING: In this method, you do not require much time and effort to cleanse crystals and stones of unwanted energy. This method quickly clears the crystals and stones. To smudge, pass your crystals many times through the smoke of burning incense, cedar, sandalwood, juniper or sage. All these were found to be powerful purifying herbs. Do not use artificial incense. Clearing stone: There are a few stones that have the potency to clear up the negative and unwanted energies. These are amethyst clusters, quartz crystal clus- ters, and selenite. For two days leave the crystal which has to be cleared on the clearing stone. SOUND: The resonant sound of a tun- ing fork or a bell vibrates the structure of crystal and allows them to quickly get rid off any negative energy. Whatever method you choose according to your crystal, the prime thing is to clean the crystal on time for best possible benefits. And don't forget to clean large dec- orative crystals around your home from time to time. CrystalCareCrystalsabsorbawiderangeofvibrations,rightfrom electricityandmagnetismtosound-therefore,itis vitaltocleansethemfromtimetotimeinorder toincreasetheirefficacy K isan Group of Companies, a prominent industrial house from Saurashtra region which has established their mark in various field like cotton ginning, cement, agriculture equipments, infrastructure, construction, lami- nates, GRP pipes and FRP pipes have ventured into a new large scale cement plant of 9 lakh MT annual capacity in Gondal taluka of Rajkot dis- trict. The plant has already started its production and in a short span of less than two months it has attracted attention of all the big customers. Be it Redimix plant, precast manufacturers, infrastruc- ture companies or "AA" class contractors. The mar- ket report and test conducted in various inde- pendent laboratories have proved that the quali- ty of cement is of a very superior grade. It gives 10 to 15% higher strength than most of the cement available in the market. Because of its high qual- ity, the cement can be used in high grade concrete of M-45, M-55 and above. In fact because of its quality the cement is ranked as the best cement available in the market. The management is com- mitted to keep the quality standards at the same level at which it is supplying today in the market. »CONTINUED FROM PAGE 18

Especially for calling it a surprise party after planning it yourself — Khamba@gkhambashi on twitter TWEETOF THEDAY » Frisking for our own safety This is with reference to the cover story ‘Respected CM, my name is Zahira and I am not a terrorist’ (AM, May 25). I am concerned about the remarks made by the guard, but getting frisked should not be an issue for Zahira or anyone else. It’s the basic security procedure all over India. I have travelled to various parts in India and at all places, the security proce- dures are the same. These checks are for our safety. So we should co-operate rather than make a huge issue of it. Her claims that nobody is ill-treated at Ajmer Shareef is incorrect. During my visit to the shrine in 2011, I was conversing with an acquaintance in Gujarati. When it was our turn to enter the dargah, a man asked us to shell out money. When we questioned him, he told us that ‘this is not our Gujarat where everything is free’. I was shocked to hear this. We need to stop thinking on basis of caste, region and religion. Only then can we achieve true secularism. Shruti Saxena, Chandkheda This is in reference to your cover story. Zahira Ghoghari has complained to the CM on being frisked by the security guards at Akshardham temple. She was frisked, quite appropriately, by the women security personnel. One fails to understand what the lady is complaining about. Is she suggesting that her commu- nity should be exempted from the securi- ty checks? I think a responsible newspa- per such as Mirror shouldn’t have given such a prominent coverage to a petty issue which is blatantly communal. Dr Surjitsingh Sikh, Ghodasar » Relax taxes on fuel The rise in price of cooking gas, CNG and petrol has inflicted unbearable bur- den on the common man. Instead of giving the people a respite from the price rise, the government seems to have increased the frequency. The govern- ment must take immediate measures, like relaxing taxes on fuel, to curb infla- tion and save the country from the nightmare of price rise. With income remaining the same and prices rising so often, meeting expenses is one of the most difficult tasks these days. Abhirup Basu, Satellite Constant hikes in fuel prices and costs of day-to-day commodities are having a massive impact on people. Though min- isters continue to assure us that the prices will be slashed, this has not been the case. Opposition parties will hold token protests against the hike, but ulti- mately, there will be no relief for us and we will have to keep tightening our belt. Kavitha Srikanth, ahmedabadmirror.com I wonder why people are cribbing about the petrol hike. This was expected since crude oil prices have moved up substan- tially in the last six months. Today, everyone is talking about the rising cost of travelling by cars, but no one is con- sidering other alternatives. What about a car pool? It will not only help save money but also reduce traffic. Why do people create a hue and cry when petrol prices go up when they are willing to spend huge sums of money on shopping? Kamalesh Kamat, ahmedabadmirror.com Powerdressingasnewcode Blame games over debates This refers to Gautam Patel’s article titled ‘In search of Ambed- kar’s Parliament’ (AM, May 18). I am sure many readers will join the columnist in his anguish over the degeneration of the standards of our elected representa- tives. Most of them have only one agen- da, to garner votes. The debate over the Ambedkar cartoon brought to mind the Theatre of the Absurd. Instead of a civil de- bate over the issue, our politicians came down to a petty blame game and a simple so- lution, the removal of the cartoon. Does this mean that one will have to seek prior sanction everytime one writes about his- torical figures? Can we not learn, teach or discuss Ambedkar, Shivaji and other such leaders without per- mission? Mukund Kumar, ahmedabadmirror.com READERS’ FEEDBACK Clothesarenotjustaboutgenderandidentity,theyareaboutwhattheyallowyoutodo.Today,women inpowerdressingwearpantswhilethemetrosexualmancanwearpinkwithpanache Y ou think therefore you are, you are what you eat but you are often judged by what you wear. Dressing is a code of communication. A few days ago, a new minister for culture in France, (a young woman) wore jeans to office inviting criticism from the oppo- sition even though most agreed that the jeans looked stylish. Denim that was part of foreign cloth to be burnt during the Swadeshi Movement is today being largely produced in Ahmedabad and exported! Once jeans were a symbol of the proletariat work- ers, today, they are a fashion statement. A few years ago, socialist heavyweight Jacques Lang was denied entry to the National Assembly in France because he did not wear a tie, much in the same way as M F Husain was denied entry to a colonial style club in India as he did not wear shoes. Dressing also means a balance of concealing and revealing. The point is that there can be no moral absolutes in deciding how much skin to reveal. But one point is important: covering is related to power. In art for example, slaves were represented with less clothes. By revealing more of the body, the vulnerability of the object was emphasised. So today, power dressing has become a new code. Politicians use dress codes to convey meanings. Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar wore western clothes to drive a point of his identity. His clothes were cut and tailored whereas Gandhiji wore loose cloth for fluidity. The former’s clothes indicated masculine power whereas the latter’s indicated feminine vulnerability. In India too we see dressing codes of politicians as part of the message they want to convey. Chidambaram wears his regional identity, Kapil Sibal likes to show his urbane sophisticated style in suits, Sonia Gandhi’s drapes show control as her sarees mostly looked starched, pinned and pleated. The fall of the drape is tamed unlike what Gandhiji wore. The first woman to discard the tra- ditional garb and wear the equivalent of pants was none other than Rani of Jhansi. In a televised interview, writer Catherine Clement in her new novel based on Rani of Jhansi, describes how her act of discarding her traditional drape in favour of the warrior clothes was both a political and a sociological- ly courageous act. Clothes are not just about gender and identity, they are about what they allow you to do. Today, women in power dressing wear pants while the metrosexual man can wear pink with panache. Thus clothes also convey an ideo- logical stance and a philosophical world view. While western soldiers wore tight clothes indicating control and tension, traditional Asian martial arts practitioners and Samurais wore flowing clothes that indicated their state of total relaxation. The human body is not just a sub- ject of art, it is a highly politicised object for national, regional and gen- der identities. It is then a ‘grammar of seeing’. There can thus be no justifica- tion for attacking a woman who choos- es to wear clothes that reveal some skin. That is her choice as it is also a grammar of ‘being.’ Clothes also convey an ideological stance and a philosophical world view 23 SATURDAY, MAY 26, 2012 amfeedback@indiatimes.com JUSTLIKETHAT AJIT NINAN ASIDE T he red brick house where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes wrote 13 stories about the renowned detective, including The Hound of the Baskervilles is at the centre of a planning battle due to which it could be partly demolished to be turned into eight homes. A High Court judge was told that Undershaw, located in a four-acre site near Haslemere in Surrey, had been seriously neg- lected by its owners, who view it as a ‘development opportu- nity’. The move has been opposed by scholar John Gibson, backed by literary celebrities like Stephen Fry, Julian Barnes and Ian Rankin. Mr Gibson is asking Justice Cranston to quash Waverley Borough Council’s decision to allow the Victorian building to be divided up, reported the Daily Mail. Paul Stinchcombe QC, rep- resenting Mr Gibson, founder of the Undershaw Preservation Trust, said there was strong public support to preserve the house because of its literary and historic importance. Waverley Council issued decision notices in September 2010 allowing current owner Fossway Ltd permission to redevelop it. The judge reserved his judgment saying he hoped to give his decision soon.

    • Ankit.Ajmera @timesgroup.com ASKTHESEXPERT DR MAHINDER WATSA 1 I am a 26-year-old married man. My wife and I enjoy sex every day. Before our marriage her breast size was 32. Now it has reduced to 30.5. Is this normal? I’ve never heard about breast reduction. Does she need a medical check-up? Please advise. I am curious about whether you sleep with a measuring tape by your bedside. When a woman is sexually excited, her breasts get enlarged a bit. Otherwise, they return to normal size. Anyway, how does it matter as long as you find them attractive? 2I am 19-years-old. In the past two years my partner has stimulated me using his fingers twice or thrice; it was not very deep. We never had intercourse. Am I still a virgin? If his fingers did not enter the vagina, you have not split your hymen. Even if the hymen was split, you are still a virgin as you did not have intercourse. 3 I was supposed to get married this month. Unfortunately, a close aunt of my fiancee died and our marriage has been delayed by three months. I have already had sex with her multi- ple times. I used a con- dom when we had sex. However, on one occasion the condom I was wear- ing tore. Now my fiancee is not getting her period. I’m not sure if this is the result of the stress she is undergoing at home or if she is pregnant. If she gets pregnant before we get married, it will create a huge problem as our families will not approve. Please suggest a solution. Get a urine pregnancy test kit from a chemist to check for pregnancy. If the kit shows two pink lines, the result in positive. Consult a gynaecologist.

You can contact Dr Watsa at mcwatsa@hotmail.com SURFACE TENSION H uman body does not consider the skin as vital organ like the heart, lungs or the brain. So when the body faces a crisis — such as dehydration, fatigue due to stress or lack of vitamins in the blood stream — the skin is the first to show symptoms, as its crisis always gets addressed last. French skin expert Julien Moignard from Kéraskin Esthetics analysed the skin of a correspon- dent. The test was done with an instrument equipped with a microscope. It measured lipid levels, hydration, wrinkle onset, skin sensi- tivity and pigmentation. Moignard, Nina Madnani, dermatologist, and Laura D’souza, skin aesthetician, share secrets that can keep your skin looking young. LIPIDS Lipids are essentials oils that are made of proteins, cholesterol and fatty acids, secreted by the pores. They are present in the uppermost layer of the skin and form a protec- tive barrier which holds in moisture and keeps out dirt and impurities. Babies have high amounts of lipids in the skin. As you age, the lipid formation in the skin slows down. MY SCORE Although I rarely apply moisturiser — and use a face wash or a soap to clean my face, depending on what I can get hold of at that moment — I scored 04 on a scale of 01-06, indicating a healthy level of lipids. A score of 05 or 06 would have indicated oily skin and a score or 01 or 02 would mean dry skin.

HYDRATION The amount of fluid in your skin is important for its health. The fluids don’t come only from the quantity of water you drink during the day but also the amount of antioxidants you consume. The ability of the skin to repair and produce new cells depends a lot on hydration. A well- hydrated skin is able to produce fresh cells more efficiently. Lack of sleep interferes with hydration and cell renewal. Which is why, when you sleep well, people notice the glow immediately as your skin has been forming new cells. MY SCORE I drank the previous night and had slept for less than five hours. Moreover, before meeting Julian, I was sweating in the heat and had gone without having water for over four hours. This showed immediately on my skin and I scored a very low 01 on a scale of 01-06. REMEDY In hot and humid weather, you must drink at least three litres of water in a day. Antioxidants such as Vitamin C and E boost cell repair and formation. Mangoes, papaya, kiwis and almonds are rich sources of Vitamin E. Oranges, strawber- ries, grapes and pomegranates are abundant in Vitamin C. Avoidcaffeineandalcoholasthey arediureticinnature,causingyourbody tolosewater. WRINKLES Wrinkles are formed when the skin cells die faster than the body can replace them. Lack of hydration over sustained periods often leads to this condition. Indentation occurs where there is constant and repetitive movement of the facial muscles, such as the glabellar-frown lines between the eyebrows, crow feet at the corner of the eyes, forehead lines and nasal wrinkles. In those who do not wear sun glasses, and have a constant frown, these indentations become pronounced wrinkles. New evidence of wrinkles has been found in young people who do heavy weights in the gym and grimace during workouts. MY SCORE I am 29, with a young skin. I scored 01, which showed that I do not have wrinkles yet. However, there are signs to indicate their onset because of my lifestyle. REMEDY Hydrateyourskinwell,wear sunglasseswhenoutside,avoidsmoking anduseanti-agingproductsunderthe guidanceofyourdermatologist. SENSITIVITY Blame your genes if you have a sensitive skin. Such skin suffers from an uncomfortable sensation when make-up, soap, cleansers, etc., come in contact with it. The sensation does not leave any visible marks, such as redness, but is unpleasant. A low score indicates low sensitivity, while a high score indicates high sensitivity to external factors. MY SCOREI scored 01, which means my skin is not sensitive. REMEDYPeoplewithsensitiveskinmust usesunscreenwhilegoingoutasprotec- tionagainstrashesandsunburns.Avoid usingtonerswhichcontainalcoholasthey canirritatetheskin.Wearoil-freeand hypoallergenicmake-up.Don’tapply cosmeticsoverbrokenskin.Useproducts specificallymeantforsensitiveskin. PIGMENTATION Human skin colours have been classified into six types. People under Type One, like Caucasians, are very fair. Type Six people have extremely pigmented skin. Indians have a wide range of skin tones and fall between Type Three and Type Six. Type of skin tone defines your response to tanning and injuries such as burns, and proneness to skin cancer. For instance, a Type Three will hardly tan even after staying out in the sun for hours. The reason is that this type produces very few melanocytes (melanin-producing cells which define the skin colour). On the other hand, a Type Six will tan within 20 to 30 minutes of staying out in the sun, as that skin produces more melanocytes in reaction to the Sun’s UV rays. MY SCORE I fall between Type Four and Six.

    • Ranvir-Konkonahitarockypatch T he buzz in the B-town is that talented Konkona Sen Sharma and Ranvir Shorey’s two-year-old marriage may have hit a rocky patch. While there have been whispers doing the rounds, what may have added fuel to the speculations is the couple’s recent appearance at the screening for Arjun. According to eye-witnesses, Ranvir arrived early and took his seat in the auditorium. Konkona arrived a little later, but instead of joining her husband, chose to sit seven rows away from him. The couple did not even as much as acknowledge each other or share pleasantries during the intermission. In fact, after the show was over, around 11pm, Konkona and Ranvir left separate- ly in their own vehicles. Guests at the screening were rather taken aback with the lack of communica- tion between the couple. One of them told the reporter, “The most shocking part was that both of them did not even look at each other at the entire screening and the time they were at the same venue.” While Konkona did not respond to our messages, Ranvir said, “We are a couple, not conjoined twins. We cannot possibly come and go everywhere together. Besides, it is none of your business.” However, sources close to the couple insist, the marriage may be going through some serious wear and tear. Thecoupleraisedeyebrowsbysittingseparatelyatafilmscreening Kunal M Shah @timesgroup.com Dutt’s manager brought to his knees for KangnaAremorsefulDharamOberoiturnsuponthesetstomeettheactress R eeling under the twin blows of Ram Gopal Varma and then Sanjay Dutt’s friends lashing out against his high- handedness, the actor’s manager Dharam Oberoi has now stepped into damage control mode, trying to right all the wrong he has reportedly done. And it began with a quick visit to Kangna Ranaut, who had borne the brunt of his fury during the making of Rascals. On Wednesday, Ranaut was rather surprised to see Oberoi at Mehboob Studios, Mumbai, where she was doing a photo shoot. It was beyond her wildest imagination. A source present at the studio told Mirror, “Kangna did not snub Oberoi. Rather, she met him graciously. The two chatted for nearly 20 minutes.” When contacted, Dharam admitted he met Kangna. “She is a friend. I had gone to meet Ajay Devgn, who was shooting for his film Son of Sardar in the same studio and I met Kangna there since she was also present,” he said. Ribbed about whether he met her to clarify his stance about Ramu accusing him of booting her out from Department, Oberoi flashed his old temper once again: “Have you seen the film? The girl’s role was s***. Why would Kangna ever do such a role? Kangna was never going to do this film. Let barking dogs keep barking.” However, according to the source, Oberoi looked far from his usual super-confident self when he spoke to the actress. “He was quite humble. He may not have said it in so many words but it was clear he was trying to convince Kangna to let bygones be bygones. Quite unlike him,” the source said. It is learnt Oberoi was Kangna’s manager for a few months before the two parted ways profes- sionally during the making of Rascals (second half of 2011). Apparently, Oberoi had mismanaged her dates and there were also rumours about Sanjay Dutt being upset with her. Nonetheless, the parting was ugly. “Those were the days when Dutt was quite close to Oberoi. Now it seems that Dutt is distancing himself from him,” a well wisher of Dutt told Mirror. Meanwhile, Dutt definitely seems to be keen to wrench himself free from Oberoi’s grasp. Else why would he have signed Karan Johar’s film opposite Kangna only recently?

But not quite the face of a film. That’s what Sharman Joshi has been perceived as so far. But that’s going to change with Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Ferrari Ki Sawaari. Looking at the big posters sprawling at Chopra’s office, Sharman lashes out at those who never considered him ‘hero’ enough. “It was their lack of vision. They don’t understand cinema. The notion will change now because of a magical producer — Vidhu Vinod Chopra. He has put his money where his mouth is. He did not simply tell me that I am a good actor and patted my back. When the opportunity arose, he cast me in a film. This required guts,” says Sharman and adds, “This is my first solo film. There were opportunities in the past but I chose not to be a part of them. I auditioned for this role 30-40 times. If I like the script, I can try even 100 times for people who are sure about me.” THE JOURNEY UNFOLDS In fact, Sharman reveals that his journey unfolded in front of his eyes the day he started off his film career. “I knew there would be this one important film that'll change my box office standing. The star in me is going to come in play with Ferrari Ki Sawaari. The box office figures will talk. There is only one maverick producer I know of – Vidhu. Most others don’t have a creative bend of mind. They lack judgement about the right actor or director. They fail to back talent,” the actor complains. However he believes that this film will turn the tables. “There will be producers lining up to sign me. I won’t be surprised,” he predicts. It wasn’t that he never got an offer for solo hero films. But Sharman never chose to be a part of those projects. “I have only done films which I loved. People in this industry feel that if someone isn’t signing too many projects, if they are offered a psycho solo hero film, he’ll do it. But I will still not do the film if I don’t like the script,” Sharman explains. SHOW ME THE SCRIPT, PLEASE “I want to tell them ki please pull up your socks, raise the bar and get me a good script. My focus is not to be part of a solo film. It’s about being part of a fine script. It’s really about being a part of great cinema. Not just today but forever,” claims the actor. And since Chopra is the one who had always offered him good scripts, Sharman is full of gratitude for the filmmaker. “How many people in his position would offer me a film as important as Ferrari Ki Sawaari? He had all possible options. I always knew that a film like this would come my way. Though it happened a little late in life,” says he. Interestingly, filmmaker Raju Hirani had reportedly offered him a film in the loo. When asked, Sharman laughs and clarifies, “I was walking out of a multiplex where Raju had come for the promos of Munna Bhai Chale Amerika. I saw him but didn’t want to disturb him. On my way out, he called out to me and he told me that he had something for me. My eyes popped out. Several months later, again in a loo of the same multiplex, I met him. The third time we met was again in the loo. Finally we met in an office and he offered me 3 Idiots.” And though the film had catapulted Sharman’s career, he had refrained from signing projects. “I just picked up Ferrari Ki Sawaari,” smiles Sharman. And that’s not because he is picky or strict. “The standards are low. The problem isn’t me. They need to raise the bar. Producers need to pay the writers enough so that they can sit in peace and work on a good script. It has to begin there. Everything else will fall into place. It is not easy to make quality stuff. You need time for it and it is crucial that they are paid well,” says the actor. So was it the reported huge signing amounts he had asked for that kept the filmmakers away? “It is a personal matter. However, I am simply saying that if you can, pay me. If you can’t, don’t. I can’t change what people think or say. For me, the script is the only criterion. If I want to do a film, I’ll do it even without money,” states Sharman. DADDY’S LITTLE GIRL Shifting focus to personal life, Sharman says he has intentionally kept his family away from the lime- light. But when it comes to his six-year-old daugh- ter Khyana, he says, “I am her favourite actor. She said this to me two days ago. She has start- ed forming opinions now and at a photo shoot, she helped me pick the right pictures.” Coming back to films, Sharman boasts that he can fly a jet faster than the Ferrari he drove. “I have clocked 200 kms/hr. It’s exciting. I like fast cars and bikes,” reveals the actor and then softly adds, “Though in real life I drive a normal SUV. I don’t do so many films to be able to afford a fancy car.” But surely, this film is going to change all that.

For instance, in the given example, the 3 boxes horizontally next to 15 must contain 3 digits that add up to 15, whereas for 9, it is the 2 boxes placed vertically under it that must add up to 9. No zeros are used here, only the digits 1 through 9. Note: A digit cannot appear more than once in any particular digit combination. For instance, in the example, we cannot have the combination of 4+7+4 for 15. 15 9 KAKURO ACROSS 1 Scientific trials usu- ally carried out in lab- oratories (11) 7 He is the one who has suffered at the hands of another (6) 8 Assert or require (6) 10 Bird: prefix (3) 11 ____ goods : goods acquired by unlawful means, surely?

How to begin: Example (Fig A) – Begin with the zero next to 3. Since no lines can be drawn around zero, mark crosses around it, as shown. Now there is a cross in one space around 3. So we know the three lines of 3 can only be drawn in the remaining three spaces. Next, these lines can only be extended in one direction each. Continue, using the same logic. Hints: Keep eliminating possibilities by marking crosses in spaces between dots where a line isn’t possible, i.e, if you have already completed required lines or where a line extension may cre- ate a branch or cause a dead-end (Fig B) (Fig B) Not allowed (Fig A) To solve a Sudoku puzzle, every digit from one to nine must appear in each of the nine vertical columns, in each of the nine horizontal rows and in each of the nine boxes.

SOLUTION: Backbacon KIDZONE LINE MARO WHATZIT? Folks say you only fall in love once, but whenever I hear your voice I fall in love all over again SITARON KE SAATH If it’s your birthday today CAPRICORN: Be diplomatic when pointing out weak- nesses in other peo- ple’s arguments as a forthright approach could hurt their feelings. Romantic relationships might be slightly tense. You may be tempted to splurge. TAURUS:Work will be hectic but don’t neg- lect your other commit- ments. Following through with domestic or social obligations will be rewarding in the long term. Your love life will be good and your partner will be supportive of your plans. VIRGO:Taking center stage and expressing your ideas could lead to interesting new op- portunities. Emotional considerations should not take priority over objectivity when making decisions that affect your finances or other important family issues. LIBRA:Discarding old strategies that are part of your comfort zone but not very rele- vant to issues you face today will help you strike out and explore new op- tions. Travel is indicated. SCORPIO: Your cre- ative abilities will help you look at is- sues from a different perspective and will enable you to find in- genious solutions. Your love life could go through some tense mo- ments if you overreact to minor issues and irritants. SAGITTARIUS:You may be unsure about something and while close colleagues can provide insights, trust your own decision making abilities. Your need for space and independence may be acute and you might resent any demands on your time. CANCER:Building a consensus with like- minded colleagues or business associates will help you initiate projects that have been pending for a while. Be dis- creet with the confidences revealed to you, accidental remarks can strain relationships. LEO:Being too com- petitive or aggressive will unnecessarily alienate colleagues. Recent confusions seem to be clearing up thereby speeding up the pace of things. Your love life will be stable. AQUARIUS: Effective organisation of your resources will be the key to making progress in the com- ing months. Focus on delivering quality results and meet- ing your deadlines as this will result in new opportunities coming your way. PISCES: It is likely to be a hectic day and you may have a tough time keeping track of goings on but out of this confusion some creative ideas or insights are possi- ble which will be valuable in the days to come. ARIES: Innovative thinking and creative ideas will help you view complicated as- signments with a fresh perspective. Be discreet with your plans especially if they involve legal strategies or financial information. GEMINI: Be discreet about your views and watch situations un- fold before taking any action. Romantic rela- tionships might be slightly stressed. Those looking for work could hear of some new developments. The atmosphere at work will be competitive and require you to handle impor- tant jobs with more responsibility.

    • www.ahmedabadmirror.com/hollywood AhmedabadMirror SATURDAY, MAY 26, 2012 36 HertakingoverasjudgeofXFactorcreated buzzandsodidherwalkoutonDayOne B ritney Spears has laughed off claims that she stormed off of X Factor after one of the contestants butchered her song. The Sun has posted a photo — seemingly taken from the audience of the audition — with Britney’s chair abandoned and empty. She claims she was simply taking a break, though a contestant could clear- ly still be seen onstage. Perhaps, some- body needs to explain to her the rules regarding ‘appropriate times to take a break when you are judging X Factor?’ Thirty-year-old star walked off the set after one of the contestants performed a less-than-impressive rendition of her hit single Hold It Against Me. Britney decided that that was as good a time as any to take a break and left Simon Cowell, La Reid and Demi Lovato to judge another four contestants without her. If Britney Spears is going to baulk at the first sign of someone ruining a Britney Spears song on X Factor, then she’s going to find out, pretty quickly, that she has a very rocky road ahead of her. However, she denies having walked off because of the earlier performance and posted a message on Twitter saying “Britneywalksoff??? Lol was just taking a little break people. I am having the Best time!!!” Britney seems to be showing signs of enjoying herself though and took time out to praise the people of Texas for their musical prowess, saying “Texas has a lot of talent - seriously! Loving TheXFactorUsa auditions so far...” She might be enjoying herself, how- ever, but given that she’s earning a reported $15 million to appear on the series, that was one pricey tea break she took.

Doctors have advised him not to per- form for the next seven days, reports the- sun.co.uk. As a result, he will have to cancel four concerts. He has been advised com- plete rest and antibiotic treatment. “It feels strange not to be able to perform these Million Dollar Piano concerts at the Colosseum. I will be thrilled to return to the Colosseum in October. All I can say is ‘sorry can’t be with you’,” said John. AGENCIES A ctress Freida Pinto, currently basking in the limelight at the ongoing 65th Cannes International Film Festival, says she feels no pressure to live up to her style icon reputation. “I really don’t worry about things like being on the red carpet. To me it’s a treat. It’s kind of fun when you’re the best dressed and I don’t care when I’m seen as the worst dressed,” showbizspy.com quoted Pinto as saying. “Ultimately for me, I just have to be happy with what I’m wearing. That’s all the matters. I just go, I love this dress and I’m going to wear it no matter what people say. I think that’s the only way to be,” added the 27-year-old, who has so far impressed fashion critics at the movie extravaganza. AGENCIES Wedding bellsringing No fear! Walk out on Day One?
