  2. 2. PAGE 2INDIALOCALMonday,22ndto28thApril2013Editorial‘Do you have it in you?’ goes thetagline the Indian Army uses for itsrecruitment drive. They say you walkin as a boy into the armed forces andcome out as an officer andgentleman. Just the sort of sentimentto get you jumping the queue to getrecruited into the army, don’t youthink? The armyis nothing if not innovative. Wedidn’t realise just how innovative untilwe saw this ad by a local recruiter inShillong. The billboard wasemblazoned with photographs ofPriyanka Chopra, Anuskha Sharma,Preity Zinta, Gul Panag and CelinaJaitley. The caption was even moreunique. It said: If you want to haveBeautiful and Successful DaughtersJOIN INDIAN ARMY’. The lovelylasses are all from army families.Now, this will come as news togender specialists and doctors. Themere entrance into the army’s ranksis enough to determine the gender ofyour child. And not just that, nevermind your genes, you are assured ofa beautiful girl. A bit limiting if youaspire to have a boy and a goodlooking one at that. This casts thearmy in a new light. No longer is theurge to join the army driven bypatriotism, the overpoweringexhilaration of knowing that the nationcan sleep safely as long as you areguarding the border. No, your primaryduty as a soldier, it would seem, is toproduce a beautiful girl who will goon to grace the big screen. Butperhaps there is more to this than wethink.Many leaders from our worthyneighbour Pakistan are said to beenamoured of our Bollywoodbeauties. So, our army could churnout an assembly line of lovelies whowould so dazzle our Pakistanibrothers that they will abandon allthoughts of fighting for such footlingissues as Kashmir. Well, our doughtyShillong recruiter may be on tosomething here. From the barracksto Bollywood may not be such a leapof faith actually.Ifonlylookscould killNOT WITH YOUOR FOR YOUThe Delhi gang rape which made anapathetic nation sit up in shock and horrorhappened largely because the police didnot do their duty of checking a bus wherethe heinous crime took place while itroamed about the city with impunity. Nowthey have gone one step better. They notonly tried tohush up the rape of a five-year-old girlin Delhi but also thought it fit to bash upwomen protesters.If the rapistsare brutes thenthe police areshowing thatthey are notmuch better inthese cases.The child whowas brutalisedby a man wholived in the samebuilding as herwas missing fordays and it wasnot the police butpeople in thelocality whofound her. Thedetails of herabuse are so gruesome as to shake eventhe most hardhearted.Yet, the police choseto act as though this were a matter of noconsequence which could be hushed upwith a little money and when faced withprotest acted as though they were theinjured party which had to defend itself.As always, there is a clamour forstronger laws, for implementing the lawsthat are already there and for the sackingof erring police officials. The only thingdifferent this time around is that given theextent of outrage over the December gangrape, at least people like the primeminister, the Congress president and thepresident have wasted no time inexpressing their anguish and have calledfor action. The latest case shows thatdespite public anger over the Decembercase and the fate of the accused, therereally is little respect for women and verylittle fear of the law. While the police mayhave acted promptly in apprehending thesuspect, they have done little to make lifeany safer for women all round. The case ofthe little girl in Aligarh who was raped,murdered and thrown in a garbage dumpis proof of this, if any were needed. Onceagain, the police not only made insensitivecomments but also manhandled an elderlywoman protester. In an earlier case, thechild victim of rape was thrown behind barsby the police in an all-women police station.The gross insensitivity on the part of thepolice is one part of the problem. It is nowclear that we cannot wait for them tofunction as the true custodians of the lawwhile children and women are at risk. Civilsociety activists too must go beyondprotest and try and organiseneighbourhood watch bodies. This way, atleast there will be some vigilance when itcomes to the safety of women and children.Of course, ultimately, the responsibilityfor people’s safety lies with the State. Allwe can hope is that this ghastly crime willnot be hijacked for political mileage andbecome yet another pawn in the blamegame. Already there have beenallegations that the opposition is stokingthe protest and trying to blame thegovernment. None of this is conducive toensuring the safety of our children andwomen. There is no magic wand which willmake this go away. But certainly what weneed is the certainty and severity ofpunishment for rapists and molesters.And this process begins at the local policestation.
  3. 3. PAGE 3INDIALOCALMonday,22ndto28thApril2013Externally, it looks likea nightgown, ordinarilyworn by women or teen-age girls, but the garmentis literally a power packedGPS and sensor-enableddevice capable of tempo-rarily incapacitatingassaulters off their feet bytriggering an 3800 kV elec-tric shock at the press ofbutton by the wearer."It was the pain of ev-ery women, which trig-gered the idea. All themore, it was hatred againstmolesters and eve- teaserswhich led to this design,"says Manisha Mohan theinventor of the "anti-rapeunderwear" and what shecalls SHE or Society Har-nessing Equipment.Apart from administer-ing a powerful shock to theassaulter the garment isalso devised to send analert to the police when thesensors are activated.Manisha, a student ofAeronautical Engineering,along with collaboratorsNiladri Basu and RimpiTripathy, students of Instru-mentation and Control En-gineering at ChennaisSRM University got to-gether to build the deviceafter the December 2012horrific gangrape of a 23-year-old woman in Delhi.Similarly, two fashiondesigning students of NIFTreworked a concept devel-oped earlier in 2004 to cre-ate a anti-molestationjacket, an innovation forwhich patent is awaitedand subsequent commer-cial sale "hopefully" by2014."We took the concept ofa stun gun similar to theSTUDENTS COME UP WITHANTI-RAPE GADGETS,INNOVATIVE CLOTHINGones used by a policemanwhich can can dischargeelectricity up to 110 volt andcatch a person off-guard.The principle is to mo-mentarily shock the personinto immobility with a low-voltage pulse delivered be-tween two electrodes," saysprofessor Noopur Anandwho mentored NishantPriya and Shahzad Ahmad,students of the Bachelorsprogram in technology tocreate two prototypes of the"anti-molestation" jacket.The jacket bears no spe-cial appearance but has"special features". "Therewere so many cases of mo-lestation and rapes and thatbecame the motivation forour graduation project.Guided by Noopur, thebasic idea was hers and wastaken from a similar con-cept done by NIFT studentsin 2004.The idea was to make apiece of clothing that willgive the girl or the womantime to make a quick get-away if assaulted. It alsoshould be wearable as wellas washable," says NishantPriya.The duo took help froman engineer to fashion theself defence jackets - onein acrylic and another intrendy denim - with metalembroidery that can con-duct 100 volts of shock tomolesters when triggered bya button on the waistband ofthe wearer.The charge in the jacketis delivered to the surfacethrough the metallic contactpoints which are camou-flaged in the embellishmentsof the jacket."We had to keep in mindthat the jacket should befunctional and affordable.The electric current shouldbe mild, else it would turninto a weapon and thatwould entail getting a li-cense and thereby raisingthe cost of the garment,"says Nishant Priya whoadds the garment can "ren-der the assaulter immobilefor at least 10 to 15 min-utes."Both the "anti-molesta-tion jacket" and the SHE"anti-rape underwear" havebeen designed with insula-tion, that protects thewearer from the shocksthrough perspiration."Along with our gadget,we aim to provide the userwith a manual with instruc-tions on washing the gar-ment," says Nishant.Also, Manisha says thatfor the SHE device they are"trying to bring down thecost of production and alsoworking on the fabric. Weneed some time to cope upwith the loop holes," says theteenager.The SRM students arealso working to ensure theproduct is water-resistantand can be interfaced withmobile via Bluetooth.Meanwhile, NoopurAnand, the guiding forcebehind the NIFT studentsinnovation, has severalideas that she would like tosee the light of the day."I want to explore aporcupine jacket onewhose bristles will standup and ward off a mo-lester. I also have plans onmy mind to explore theconcept of smell andsound. Something whichcan emit a shrill noise orone that can give off apungent odour that candeter assault. The puzzle,though is to protect thewearer," says Noopur.The professor, who hasexpertise in working withsuch "Smart Garment"technology says they areon the look out for col-laborators who can "workbeyond the lab.""I am aware thatorganisations like the Mas-sachusetts Institute ofTechnology (MIT) haveworked with some electri-cal fabric but it is not eas-ily available commerciallyin India and the cost isalso prohibitive. We wantto do something whichcomes for less than Rs1500," says Noopur.There are also reportsof a school student fromDelhi who has designed adevice that can be wornon the wrist like a watchand immobilise anassaulter giving the pro-spective victim enoughtime to flee and call forhelp. When activated, theanti-molestation devicerecords a significant risein nerve speed and pulserate of the victim, asks foran activation commandand once it comes in con-tact with the attackersskin, it delivers a shock of0.1 ampere. It is also ca-pable of taking images ofthe attacker using aninbuilt camera.

PAGE 6INDIALOCALMonday,22ndto28thApril2013In a bid to assure seats to many more passengers who book their traintickets through Tatkal services, the railways have proposed to run speciallong-distance trains. Even passengers on waiting lists will benefit, once theunion railway ministry accepts the proposal. Passengers often line up as earlyas 8 am at Tatkal counters to reserve a spot.“We will be presenting the pro-posal of running special trains forTatkal passengers to the union railway min-ister,” said Subodh Jain, general manager of Central Railway and member(engineering) of the Railway Board. Hopeful commuters line up as early as 8in the morning to get tickets through Tatkal bookings, but often return empty-handed, as these get booked within minutes. To give them a fair chance, therailways have now barred travel agents who would hog a chunk of the berthsfrom booking tickets online during the first two hours of business.As per thecurrent proposal, the railways intend to run back-to-back trains to ease thepressure. They also plan to add extra coaches to existing rakes to accommo-date more bookings. The number of people opting for Tatkal bookings in-creases during holidays and summer vacations, and even the waiting list climbsup to 300-400 people, including those who have registered through Tatkal.Sources in the railways said the additional trains would have between 15-18coaches, unlike regular outstation trains that have about 20 coaches.HOSPITAL HANDS OVERBODYTO WRONGFAMILYRelatives of 45-year-old Nitin Mahajan whodied in Ruby Hall Clinicat 1 am yesterday, wereshocked to the core whenthey discovered that thehospital has given thebody to one Kadam fam-ily.Mahajan, who hailsfrom Nashik, was admit-ted to the hospital for avalve replacement sur-gery.After he died yester-day, the family kept thebody in the morgue.

Whenwe contacted theKadams, they too wereshocked to know that thehospital gave them thewrong body,” said SachinMahajan’s brother. “Thehospital administrationthen sent Kadam’s bodyto his house, while mybrother’s body, whichwas in another hospital,was brought back,”Sachin said. “The hospi-tal had earlier instructedus to take Kadam’s bodyand exchange it withMahajan’s body somewhere on the way,” saidone of the relatives.“Thehospital administrationwas initially reluctant tohelp the family and sharedinformation about theKadam family only afterthey raised an alarm,”Sachin said. Likewise, theKadam family too wasshocked with the goof-up. “My uncle DilipKadam died at Ruby Hos-pital on Saturday. We de-cided to bring the bodyon Sunday, as his son’spractical exams were on.As the body waswrapped in cloth, wedidn’t see the face. It wasonly when we removedthe cloth to bathe thebody that we realised thathe was not my uncle,”said Kadam’s nephew.Meanwhile theMahajans demanded anapology from hospitaladministration for thegoof-up. “The hospitalhas given us a letterapologising for the inci-dent,” Sachin said. How-ever, when the Mahajansdemanded to meet thehospital officials, the ad-ministration called up thepolice. “The hospital au-thorities have spoken tothe relatives and also is-sued an apology letter.Besides, they have calledrelatives on the Mondayto pay some compensa-tion for the goof-up thathappened on their part,”said VK Jachak, assistantpolice inspector ofMangaldas Road policechowky.

However,many citizens have been complaining that the small nullahsare left out of the cleaning process. Keeping this in mind,this year, the civic body has invested Rs 2 crore in buyingtwo new machines that will help desilt the small nullahs inthe city for the first time. This is the first experience of theStorm Water Drain (SWD) department with these machines,which were earlier used for sewerage operations by theSewerage Operation (SO) department.BMC gives out contracts every year to have a properdrainage system in place, so flooding due to clogged drainscan be prevented during monsoons. Earlier, the small nullahswould be ignored and would add to the woes of residentsduring monsoons. The civic body was also blamed of ignoringthe issue and not keeping a check on the contractors workingon cleaning the nullahs.Sachin Parkar, a resident of Ghatkopar, said, “Silt hasalways been a problem, and the BMC doesn’t do it at theground level, only giving out tenders. I doubt if these machineswill be used to clean small nullahs. If the big ones nullahsare lying unclean, the contractors surely won’t bother to cleanthe small ones.” The administration however claimed thatthe department will be operating these machines directlyand there will be no third party involved in the process. “Weare experimenting with this kind of machines for the firsttime,” said Laxman Vhatkar, Chief Engineer (SWD). “Thework has already started in some parts of the city.
