The tourists visiting the
Jhalana Leopard Re-
serve of Jaipur experi-
enced a thrilling inci-
dent when they saw a
leopard hunting a stray
dog right in front of
them. The dog, unaware
of the presence of the
leopard named Rana,
famous as the King of
Jhalana who was resting
there, was hunted within
seconds by the leopard.
The danger looming
over the dog was sensed
by birds that chirped
loudly and gave danger
signals but the dog, ig-
norant of the leopard’s
presence, failed to un-
derstand these signals.
Meanwhile, Rana
ended the dog’s life in
one fell swoop. This
hair-raising live hunting
was captured on camera
by naturalist Hemant.
Two other interesting
sightings were also wit-
nessed in the Reserve.
Afemale leopard cub
named Barfi was seen
playing on a tree guard
which was captured by
one Rakesh Sihra in his
camera. At Phuta Band-
ha water point, two
small cubs of a female
leopard named Sharmi-
lee were seen drinking
water. Aslam and Par-
mesh captured this
scene in their cameras.
Similar scenes from
Jhalana Leopard Re-
serve have been attract-
ing tourists from India
and abroad. The chanc-
es of sighting leopards
in the wild are more
than 90 per cent here,
which is the highest in

Low Responsive and /or
High or Low Demanding,
parenting styles can be
broadlyviewedasAuthor-
itative (high demanding
and high responsive), Au-
thoritarian (high demand-
ing, low responsive), Per-
missive (low demanding,
high responsive) Reject-
ing (low demanding, and
low responsive).
Authoritarian Parenting
is characterised by strict
rules by parents and obe-
dience by children with no
scope of errors and mis-
takes lead to punishment.
Less nurturing parents
with high expectations
may end up with children
growing as poor self-es-
teem and indecisive. But
Some children may turn
out to be well behaved
with high output but ag-
gressive nature.
Authoritative Parent-
ing develops a close, nur-
turing relationship with
the children. There are
reasonable, mutually
agreed clear expectations
from children and disci-
plinary methods are used
as a way of support in-
stead of punishment.
Such parenting leads to
the healthiest outcome
for children but requires
lots of patience and effort
from both parties. End
product in most cases is
confident, high perform-
ing, responsible, self-reg-
ulating children with high
on self-esteem.
Permissive Parenting is
full of warmth, nurturing
and with minimal or no
expectations. The parents
are friendly to children
and give them adequate
freedom applying limited
rules. Children of permis-
sive parents do have some
self-esteem and decent
social skills but can be im-
pulsive, demanding, self-
ish, and lack self-regula-
tion.
Rejecting Parenting
style symbolises discon-
nected relationships and a
highly rigid approach. In
this parent are unrespon-
sive to the children’s
needs and spend less or no
time with their children.
This leads to low self-es-
teem, behavior problems
and substance abuse in the
children.
Parenting styles impact
children development in
many ways like emotion-
al, cognitive, social, mor-
al, cultural, physical, and
mental.
Good Parent - Child
bond provides a founda-
tion for emotional regula-
tion and resilience
throughout their lives.
Parents connecting by
providing a stimulating
environment with toys,
books, and activities and
their involvement in a
child’s education can pos-
itively impact their aca-
demic performance.
Children often mimic
parents’ social interac-
tions, such as relationship
formation, cooperation,
conflict resolution, and
empathy.
Parents are primary
source of moral and ethi-
cal guidance, and shaping
their cultural identity.Au-
thoritative parenting nur-
tures good social behavior
in children.
Parents influence eat-
ing habits and physical
activities impacting phys-
ical health. Parenting
styles also affect a child’s
self-esteem, stress-cop-
ing, and mental health de-
velopment.
As a parent there is a
need to connect rather
than correct a child all the
time, especially when one
sees the child undertaking
some activities which par-
ents perceive high risk
activities. In such situa-
tions join in with your kid
and connect in doing that
activity rather than cor-
recting from side lines.
The corrections are nor-
mally taken as external
instructions or preaching
which is perceived by
children as over interfer-
ing and may prove coun-
terproductive.
We find many parents
frequently arguing with
teachers, neighbours, oth-
er family members or
friends about their rules or
the way your child is treat-
ed, this is helicopter par-
enting and definitely not
healthy. In such cases,
friends start distancing
themselves and teachers
become cautious, thereby
denying these children
natural growth opportuni-
ties and good company.
Getting into a power
struggle with a child
where both parents and
children refuse to give in
is a very precarious situa-
tion,whichmustbeavoid-
ed. Power struggle is no
one wins situation, caus-
ing rise of temperaments
leading to increase in chil-
dren anger towards their
parents rather than learn-
ing lesson.
The bottom line of
good parenting is spend-
ing some quality time
with children, connecting
with them and be availa-
ble to them in time of
need. Keep communicat-
ing and probing their
thought process and ask-
ing them as what they
wish to do and give them
freedom as how to do.

z LYING: Children lie to get attention, avoid getting in
trouble, and feeling better about themselves. The
best way is to connect with your children to find the
reason for lying and then use a mix of consequences
of lying and rewards of truth to correct them rather
than ignoring it.
z DEFIANCE: When children ignore any instruction or
correction from parents or teachers its defiance and
is a difficult behavior to address, but it’s normal for
kids to test limits at one time or other. The best option
is linking the instruction with some condition that is
more acceptable to children or else consistently follow
through a consequence in a firm manner.
z DISRESPECTFUL BEHAVIOUR: Name-calling, throwing
things and mocking are few common behavior prob-
lems that show disrespect. As a good parent involve
yourself to find the reasons for such a behaviour and
draw out a cool strategy mixed with ignoring if the
intent is to draw attention or else be firm to make it
clear that such a behaviour is not acceptable.
z TEMPER TANTRUMS AND AGGRESSION: Screaming, or
aggressive behavior like punching a sibling or a
classmate may be result of their inability to control
their feelings or not coping with studies. Parents must
spend some quality time connecting and playing both
soft and hard cards with them to channelise their
aggression to learn new skills. Parents in such cases
must try anger management skills, praising child for
right acts and try some self-discipline skills. If that
doesn’t work, taking away a privilege may yield better
results and as a last resort seek professional help.
z OVERPARENTING: Most parents at times assume that
theirs is the best way or the right way to do every-
thing and end up micromanaging children affairs or
overparenting. Constantly hovering over to ensure
they’re making good decisions, protecting them from
any physical or emotional discomfort and continuous
hypervigilance and overindulgence can hamper their
natural development making them over dependent.
PARENTING PIVOTS
There are certain children behavioural
problems that are faced by parents at
one point or other and the way parents
respond to these behavioural problems

APPLE CEO ON DOUBLE-DIGIT GROWTH’ IN INDIA
India emerged as most preferred market for tech giants: Cook
Agencies
New York
ndia has be-
come a key
market for
global tech giants, with a
burgeoning developer
base attracting signifi-
cant attention.
Tim Cook, CEO of
Apple, expressed his
contentment with India’s
growing developer com-
munity, underlining Ap-
ple’s holistic approach
covering everything from
developer support to
market strategies and op-
erational efficiency
MoS Electronics and
Technology, Rajeev
Chandrasekhar tweeted
that the CEO of Apple,
Tim Cook said, “We have
been very pleased that
there is a rapidly growing
base of developers in In-
dia. Apple is working all
of the entire ecosystem
from developer to the
market to operations, the
whole thing.”
Cook laudedApple In-
dia’s double-digit reve-
nue growth, marking a
new March quarter re-
cord. He described India
as an “incredibly exciting
market” and a major fo-
cus for the company.
“We did grow strong
by double-digit, and so
we were very, very
pleased with that. It was a
new March quarter reve-
nue record for us. As you
know, as I’ve said before,
I see it as an incredibly
exciting market and it’s a
major focus for us,” said
Cook on Apple’s perfor-
mance in India. India has
become a top priority for
global tech companies
due to its large talent
pool, low operating costs,
and stable environment
for supply chains. In this
continuously evolving
era of global geopolitical
power India has emerged
as a beacon for global
tech corporations. In
2023, revenue growth
rates for Apple, Micro-
soft, and Meta in India
outpaced their global ex-
pansion rates.
“From a pragmatic
point of view, you need
to produce there (India)
to be competitive, and so,
yes, the two things are
linked from that point of
view, but we have both
operational things going
on and we have to go to
market and initiatives go-
ing on,” he added.
Apple’s efforts to ex-
pand its presence in India
include strengthening
distribution channels and
nurturing the developer
community. Apple sup-
ported over a million de-
veloper jobs in India in
2023, with plans for fur-
ther expansion.
Moreover, Apple’s
achievement of setting
a six-month revenue
record in India and oth-
er emerging markets
underscores the coun-
try’s significance in the
tech landscape.

Royal Challengers Ben-

destruction button half-
way but a blazing fifty by
captain Faf du Plessis
had enough torque in it to
carry them to a four-
wicket over Gujarat Ti-
tans in their IPL match
here on Saturday.
Du Plesiss (64, 23b,
10x4, 3x6) and Kohli
(42, 27b, 2x4, 4x6), who
added 92 runs in just 35
balls for the opening
wicket, were in prime
touch as Royal Challeng-
ers moved past a frail tar-
get of 148, braving some
nervy moments, most of
it their own creation.
The win also lifted
RCB to seventh place on
the table with eight points
from 11 matches, and
kept their mathematical
chances of making it to
the play-offs alive.
Du Plessis and Kohli
dealt in boundaries as the
home side racked in 92

AS officer
Bhanu Prakash
Yeturu, as of to-
day, has become the ‘al-
mighty’ in the Vidyut
Bhawan. Although the
2003 batch IAS Yeturu is
currently a secretary-level
officer, he is discharging
the additional charge of
ACS and Principal Secre-
tary positions as well.
As of today, Yeturu is
discharging the responsi-
bilities of seven posts,
which are Secretary En-
ergy, Chairman Discoms,
Chairman Vidyut Prasa-
ran Nigam, Chairman
Urja Vikas Nigam, Man-
aging Director Jaipur
Discom, and MD Urja
Vikas Nigam.
Originally, Yeturu had
the responsibilities of
two posts Chairman Dis-
coms and MD Jaipur Dis-
com, and the remaining
five posts have been
handed to him as addi-
tional charges. Owing to
ACS Alok being on
leave, his charge of Sec-
retary Energy, Chairman
Vidyut Prasaran Nigam
and Chairman Urja Vikas
Nigam, have been hand-
ed toAlok. Thereafter, on
Friday, May 3, the DoP
handed the additional
charge of two more posts
to Yeturu since MD of
Urja Vikas Nigam NC
Bansal retired and MD of
Jodhpur Discom Om-
prakash Kasera left for
election duty.
According to adminis-
trative experts, this is the
first case where one of-
ficer has been burdened
with the additional
charge of five posts. Ex-
perts also stress that bur-
dening one officer with
so much work and re-
sponsibility is neither
prudent nor practical
even when the work done
by officials on these posts
is extremely important.
When Yeturu returned
to the Rajasthan cadre in
October 2021 after
spending 3 years on
Home State deputation,
the then government
transferred him five
times in two years.
Moreover, when there
are half a dozen senior
officials adept and expe-
rienced in handling
works related to the En-
ergy Department, in that
case, the reason for
handing all the responsi-
bility as an additional
charge to Yeturu is be-
yond comprehension.

FIRST INDIA SUNDAY SPECIAL
Mirch Masala
HOW DID THE TRUTH OF ‘PRAJWAL' COME OUT?
he biggest question is how
the case of Revanna's sex
scandal came to light. Actually,
a 68-year-old female cook was working
at Revanna's house for a long time, but
Prajwal surprisingly made her a victim of
his lust and also made some videos of
her intimate moments. Sources reveal
that the son of this female cook was one
of Revanna's security personnel. When
the son came to know about the torture
done to his mother, he lost his temper.
Sources claim that the young security
guard, who kept his cool, made Revan-
na's mobile phone - with which he used
to make videos - disappear the next day
and with this phone, he went straight to
the Congress leader of Hassan and told
him that he would like to meet DK Shiva-
kumar as he can only trust him. It is said
that the Congress leader from Hassan
made that security personnel sit in his
car and both of them left for Bengaluru
to meet DK the same night. When this
phone was 'decoded', 2976 objection-
able videos were found in it which were
related to sexual exploitation of about
1800 women. 18 thousand such photos
were also recovered from this phone. It
is said that this security personnel asked
for security for his family in exchange for
the phone, which was provided to him.
T
he ticket of two-
time MP from
Mumbai North
Poonam Mahajan has
been canceled this time
and in her place BJP has
given a chance to public
advocate Ujjwal Nikam.
Poonam had already
realized that her ticket
was being canceled.
So, just a few days
ago she came to Delhi
along with her district
presidents to meet the
top BJP leadership. But
the top leadership told
her that ‘the party wants
to change her role this
time.’ Poonam had also
realized this when the
PM presented a quote in
a meeting of BJP MPs
that ‘No matter how
big one becomes, one
should never harbor ego.’
If sources are to be be-
lieved, Poonam Mahajan
also had the opportunity
to join Congress but she
refused to join Congress.
After this, Poonam also
had a long talk with
Shiv Sena chief Uddhav
Thackeray. If sources are
to be believed, Uddhav is
preparing a big roadmap
for Poonam.
T
ormer Prime Minister of the country HD Deve
Gowda was the MP from Hassan for a long
time, but ironically, he never gifted his seat
to his sons but to his beloved grandson Prajwal Re-
vanna. It is said that Prajwal has been very fond of his
grandfather since the beginning. He also took great
care of his grandfather. When the Deve
Gowda family sent Prajwal to Australia
to study, he did not like it there. He told
the family that he could not live without
his grandfather and stressed that he
has to live with Dada and serve him.
So, when Deve Gowda was leaving his
seat for Prajwal in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Ku-
maraswamy had strongly opposed it. Kumaraswamy
had also told his father, ‘Don’t give him a ticket, his
habits are not good.’ Anyway, Kumaraswamy never
got along with his elder brother HD Ravenna. The
political ambitions of the two brothers always clashed
with each other. So, when Kumaraswamy’s son Nikhil
lost the 2023 Karnataka Assembly elections, the
Revanna family was believed to be behind it.
JP is a little worried about top leadership in
Bihar. In this light, the top BJP leadership
called an important meeting of the core
committee of Bihar BJP. It is understood that the
top leadership scolded the saffron leaders of Bihar
and said, ‘Why are you not able to coordinate with
Janata Dal U? Why is there an uproar? Why are both
of you not helping each other in the elections?’ After
this, the BJP top wanted to know from the leaders of
their state how many seats the alliance is getting this
time. Hearing this answer, BJP has strengthened its
preparations in Bihar and has instructed BJP leaders
as well as JDU to move together.

EATINGCHOICES!
ost par-
e n t s ,
educa-
tors and
policy-
makers
agree that children should
eat healthy foods. How-
ever, our peer-reviewed
paper suggests the strat-
egy adults often use to
achieve that can some-
times backfire. Fortu-
nately, there’s an easy
fix.
We, along with fellow
marketing scholars Lin-
grui Zhou and Gavan
Fitzsimons, conducted
five experiments with
over 3,800 parents as
well as 10 in-depth inter-
views. We found that par-
ents tend to choose un-
healthy foods for them-
selves after choosing a
healthy meal for their
young children. This
happens because parents
say they are uncertain
whether their child will
eat their healthy dishes,
and so they use their
meals as a backup to
share to ensure
that their child
at least eats
something.
This dy-
namic is
not ideal.
For one,
it could
result in
p a r e n t s
eating un-
h e a l t h i e r
foods, and
children may
also end up eating
unhealthily if they
eat mostly from their
parent’s plate. Addition-
ally, it does not set a good
example of healthy eat-
ing.
How, then, to change
this dynamic?
After testing several
interventions, one stood
out as particularly simple
and effective: nudging
parents to think of their
meals as their own,
rather than backup
options for their
kids.
We part-
nered with
a nursery
school that
was inter-
ested in
promoting healthier
eating among
children. Par-
ents associated
with the school were of-
fered a free family din-
ner. Parents first choose
a meal for their child
from a healthy kid’s
menu. They then chose
a meal for them-
selves from a
menu that had a
mix of healthy
and unhealthy
options. Half
of the parents
– randomly
assigned –
saw a menu
that prompt-
ed them to
think of
their
meal as “for you and only
you!” The other half did
not see this additional
prompt to think of their
meal as only for them.
This intervention was
successful: By encourag-
ing parents to think of
their meals as their own,
it made about a third
more likely to choose the
healthy option for them-
selves.
Our findings suggest
policymakers and
schools may want to con-
sider the role parents –
and their food choices –
play in efforts to encour-
age healthy eating among
children. As for parents,
we suggest nixing the
backup plan and making
sure both they and their
children are eating nu-
tritiously.

You may find yourself
feeling a bit stuck in your
usual routine when it
comes to love. The day
ahead may not bring any
major changes or
surprises, but that doesn’t
mean it will be
uneventful. Instead, use
this time to reflect on
your current relationships
and see where you can
make improvements. This
could be due to
unexpected expenses or a
decrease in income.

  • 4. arenting, is the noble process of raising chil- dren and providing them with good environment, protection and care to facilitate their growth as successful and good human beings. Par- ents assert a direct and powerful influence on their children and if chil- dren turn out well, it is to the parents’ credit; if they turn out badly, it is the par- ents’ fault. They play a significant role in shaping children’s environment, peer relationships, neigh- bourhood, the schools and friends they make. Even broad contextual factors, such as poverty and cul- ture, are mediated by par- ents,whicharefundamen- tal to children’s develop- ment and stature, adjust- ment and success in life. Based on being High or Low Responsive and /or High or Low Demanding, parenting styles can be broadlyviewedasAuthor- itative (high demanding and high responsive), Au- thoritarian (high demand- ing, low responsive), Per- missive (low demanding, high responsive) Reject- ing (low demanding, and low responsive). Authoritarian Parenting is characterised by strict rules by parents and obe- dience by children with no scope of errors and mis- takes lead to punishment. Less nurturing parents with high expectations may end up with children growing as poor self-es- teem and indecisive. But Some children may turn out to be well behaved with high output but ag- gressive nature. Authoritative Parent- ing develops a close, nur- turing relationship with the children. There are reasonable, mutually agreed clear expectations from children and disci- plinary methods are used as a way of support in- stead of punishment. Such parenting leads to the healthiest outcome for children but requires lots of patience and effort from both parties. End product in most cases is confident, high perform- ing, responsible, self-reg- ulating children with high on self-esteem. Permissive Parenting is full of warmth, nurturing and with minimal or no expectations. The parents are friendly to children and give them adequate freedom applying limited rules. Children of permis- sive parents do have some self-esteem and decent social skills but can be im- pulsive, demanding, self- ish, and lack self-regula- tion. Rejecting Parenting style symbolises discon- nected relationships and a highly rigid approach. In this parent are unrespon- sive to the children’s needs and spend less or no time with their children. This leads to low self-es- teem, behavior problems and substance abuse in the children. Parenting styles impact children development in many ways like emotion- al, cognitive, social, mor- al, cultural, physical, and mental. Good Parent - Child bond provides a founda- tion for emotional regula- tion and resilience throughout their lives. Parents connecting by providing a stimulating environment with toys, books, and activities and their involvement in a child’s education can pos- itively impact their aca- demic performance. Children often mimic parents’ social interac- tions, such as relationship formation, cooperation, conflict resolution, and empathy. Parents are primary source of moral and ethi- cal guidance, and shaping their cultural identity.Au- thoritative parenting nur- tures good social behavior in children. Parents influence eat- ing habits and physical activities impacting phys- ical health. Parenting styles also affect a child’s self-esteem, stress-cop- ing, and mental health de- velopment. As a parent there is a need to connect rather than correct a child all the time, especially when one sees the child undertaking some activities which par- ents perceive high risk activities. In such situa- tions join in with your kid and connect in doing that activity rather than cor- recting from side lines. The corrections are nor- mally taken as external instructions or preaching which is perceived by children as over interfer- ing and may prove coun- terproductive. We find many parents frequently arguing with teachers, neighbours, oth- er family members or friends about their rules or the way your child is treat- ed, this is helicopter par- enting and definitely not healthy. In such cases, friends start distancing themselves and teachers become cautious, thereby denying these children natural growth opportuni- ties and good company. Getting into a power struggle with a child where both parents and children refuse to give in is a very precarious situa- tion,whichmustbeavoid- ed. Power struggle is no one wins situation, caus- ing rise of temperaments leading to increase in chil- dren anger towards their parents rather than learn- ing lesson. The bottom line of good parenting is spend- ing some quality time with children, connecting with them and be availa- ble to them in time of need. Keep communicat- ing and probing their thought process and ask- ing them as what they wish to do and give them freedom as how to do.

The best way is to connect with your children to find the reason for lying and then use a mix of consequences of lying and rewards of truth to correct them rather than ignoring it. z DEFIANCE: When children ignore any instruction or correction from parents or teachers its defiance and is a difficult behavior to address, but it’s normal for kids to test limits at one time or other. The best option is linking the instruction with some condition that is more acceptable to children or else consistently follow through a consequence in a firm manner. z DISRESPECTFUL BEHAVIOUR: Name-calling, throwing things and mocking are few common behavior prob- lems that show disrespect. As a good parent involve yourself to find the reasons for such a behaviour and draw out a cool strategy mixed with ignoring if the intent is to draw attention or else be firm to make it clear that such a behaviour is not acceptable. z TEMPER TANTRUMS AND AGGRESSION: Screaming, or aggressive behavior like punching a sibling or a classmate may be result of their inability to control their feelings or not coping with studies. Parents must spend some quality time connecting and playing both soft and hard cards with them to channelise their aggression to learn new skills. Parents in such cases must try anger management skills, praising child for right acts and try some self-discipline skills. If that doesn’t work, taking away a privilege may yield better results and as a last resort seek professional help. z OVERPARENTING: Most parents at times assume that theirs is the best way or the right way to do every- thing and end up micromanaging children affairs or overparenting. Constantly hovering over to ensure they’re making good decisions, protecting them from any physical or emotional discomfort and continuous hypervigilance and overindulgence can hamper their natural development making them over dependent. PARENTING PIVOTS There are certain children behavioural problems that are faced by parents at one point or other and the way parents respond to these behavioural problems shape the children’s future...

EXPANSION PLANS Adani Group aims to expand in Philippines Agencies New Delhi dani Ports and Special Eco- nomic Zone (APSEZ) is planning to invest significantly in the Philippines, and is look- ing at Bataan for its port development plan, the government of Philip- pines has said. Bataan is a province on the Philippine island of Luzon. According to a statement from the Phil- ippines Presidential Of- fice, APSEZ is planning to invest owing to the “stability in regulation and business environ- ment” under the Presi- dent Ferdinand R Marcos Jr administration. “Your Excellency, as a private sector, what we always look for is stabil- ity.

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, expressed his contentment with India’s growing developer com- munity, underlining Ap- ple’s holistic approach covering everything from developer support to market strategies and op- erational efficiency MoS Electronics and Technology, Rajeev Chandrasekhar tweeted that the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook said, “We have been very pleased that there is a rapidly growing base of developers in In- dia. Apple is working all of the entire ecosystem from developer to the market to operations, the whole thing.” Cook laudedApple In- dia’s double-digit reve- nue growth, marking a new March quarter re- cord. He described India as an “incredibly exciting market” and a major fo- cus for the company. “We did grow strong by double-digit, and so we were very, very pleased with that. It was a new March quarter reve- nue record for us. As you know, as I’ve said before, I see it as an incredibly exciting market and it’s a major focus for us,” said Cook on Apple’s perfor- mance in India. India has become a top priority for global tech companies due to its large talent pool, low operating costs, and stable environment for supply chains. In this continuously evolving era of global geopolitical power India has emerged as a beacon for global tech corporations. In 2023, revenue growth rates for Apple, Micro- soft, and Meta in India outpaced their global ex- pansion rates. “From a pragmatic point of view, you need to produce there (India) to be competitive, and so, yes, the two things are linked from that point of view, but we have both operational things going on and we have to go to market and initiatives go- ing on,” he added. Apple’s efforts to ex- pand its presence in India include strengthening distribution channels and nurturing the developer community. Apple sup- ported over a million de- veloper jobs in India in 2023, with plans for fur- ther expansion. Moreover, Apple’s achievement of setting a six-month revenue record in India and oth- er emerging markets underscores the coun- try’s significance in the tech landscape. Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Du Plesiss (64, 23b, 10x4, 3x6) and Kohli (42, 27b, 2x4, 4x6), who added 92 runs in just 35 balls for the opening wicket, were in prime touch as Royal Challeng- ers moved past a frail tar- get of 148, braving some nervy moments, most of it their own creation. The win also lifted RCB to seventh place on the table with eight points from 11 matches, and kept their mathematical chances of making it to the play-offs alive. Du Plessis and Kohli dealt in boundaries as the home side racked in 92 runs in Power Play, that contained 10 fours and seven maximums.

Rajendra Chhabra Jaipur AS officer Bhanu Prakash Yeturu, as of to- day, has become the ‘al- mighty’ in the Vidyut Bhawan. Although the 2003 batch IAS Yeturu is currently a secretary-level officer, he is discharging the additional charge of ACS and Principal Secre- tary positions as well. As of today, Yeturu is discharging the responsi- bilities of seven posts, which are Secretary En- ergy, Chairman Discoms, Chairman Vidyut Prasa- ran Nigam, Chairman Urja Vikas Nigam, Man- aging Director Jaipur Discom, and MD Urja Vikas Nigam. Originally, Yeturu had the responsibilities of two posts Chairman Dis- coms and MD Jaipur Dis- com, and the remaining five posts have been handed to him as addi- tional charges. Owing to ACS Alok being on leave, his charge of Sec- retary Energy, Chairman Vidyut Prasaran Nigam and Chairman Urja Vikas Nigam, have been hand- ed toAlok. Thereafter, on Friday, May 3, the DoP handed the additional charge of two more posts to Yeturu since MD of Urja Vikas Nigam NC Bansal retired and MD of Jodhpur Discom Om- prakash Kasera left for election duty. According to adminis- trative experts, this is the first case where one of- ficer has been burdened with the additional charge of five posts. Ex- perts also stress that bur- dening one officer with so much work and re- sponsibility is neither prudent nor practical even when the work done by officials on these posts is extremely important. When Yeturu returned to the Rajasthan cadre in October 2021 after spending 3 years on Home State deputation, the then government transferred him five times in two years. Moreover, when there are half a dozen senior officials adept and expe- rienced in handling works related to the En- ergy Department, in that case, the reason for handing all the responsi- bility as an additional charge to Yeturu is be- yond comprehension.

Actually, a 68-year-old female cook was working at Revanna's house for a long time, but Prajwal surprisingly made her a victim of his lust and also made some videos of her intimate moments. Sources reveal that the son of this female cook was one of Revanna's security personnel. When the son came to know about the torture done to his mother, he lost his temper. Sources claim that the young security guard, who kept his cool, made Revan- na's mobile phone - with which he used to make videos - disappear the next day and with this phone, he went straight to the Congress leader of Hassan and told him that he would like to meet DK Shiva- kumar as he can only trust him. It is said that the Congress leader from Hassan made that security personnel sit in his car and both of them left for Bengaluru to meet DK the same night. When this phone was 'decoded', 2976 objection- able videos were found in it which were related to sexual exploitation of about 1800 women. 18 thousand such photos were also recovered from this phone. It is said that this security personnel asked for security for his family in exchange for the phone, which was provided to him. T he ticket of two- time MP from Mumbai North Poonam Mahajan has been canceled this time and in her place BJP has given a chance to public advocate Ujjwal Nikam. Poonam had already realized that her ticket was being canceled. So, just a few days ago she came to Delhi along with her district presidents to meet the top BJP leadership. But the top leadership told her that ‘the party wants to change her role this time.’ Poonam had also realized this when the PM presented a quote in a meeting of BJP MPs that ‘No matter how big one becomes, one should never harbor ego.’ If sources are to be be- lieved, Poonam Mahajan also had the opportunity to join Congress but she refused to join Congress. After this, Poonam also had a long talk with Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray. If sources are to be believed, Uddhav is preparing a big roadmap for Poonam. T ormer Prime Minister of the country HD Deve Gowda was the MP from Hassan for a long time, but ironically, he never gifted his seat to his sons but to his beloved grandson Prajwal Re- vanna. It is said that Prajwal has been very fond of his grandfather since the beginning. He also took great care of his grandfather. When the Deve Gowda family sent Prajwal to Australia to study, he did not like it there. He told the family that he could not live without his grandfather and stressed that he has to live with Dada and serve him. So, when Deve Gowda was leaving his seat for Prajwal in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Ku- maraswamy had strongly opposed it. Kumaraswamy had also told his father, ‘Don’t give him a ticket, his habits are not good.’ Anyway, Kumaraswamy never got along with his elder brother HD Ravenna. The political ambitions of the two brothers always clashed with each other. So, when Kumaraswamy’s son Nikhil lost the 2023 Karnataka Assembly elections, the Revanna family was believed to be behind it. JP is a little worried about top leadership in Bihar. In this light, the top BJP leadership called an important meeting of the core committee of Bihar BJP. It is understood that the top leadership scolded the saffron leaders of Bihar and said, ‘Why are you not able to coordinate with Janata Dal U? Why is there an uproar? Why are both of you not helping each other in the elections?’ After this, the BJP top wanted to know from the leaders of their state how many seats the alliance is getting this time. Hearing this answer, BJP has strengthened its preparations in Bihar and has instructed BJP leaders as well as JDU to move together.

How- ever, our peer-reviewed paper suggests the strat- egy adults often use to achieve that can some- times backfire. Fortu- nately, there’s an easy fix. We, along with fellow marketing scholars Lin- grui Zhou and Gavan Fitzsimons, conducted five experiments with over 3,800 parents as well as 10 in-depth inter- views. We found that par- ents tend to choose un- healthy foods for them- selves after choosing a healthy meal for their young children. This happens because parents say they are uncertain whether their child will eat their healthy dishes, and so they use their meals as a backup to share to ensure that their child at least eats something. This dy- namic is not ideal. For one, it could result in p a r e n t s eating un- h e a l t h i e r foods, and children may also end up eating unhealthily if they eat mostly from their parent’s plate. Addition- ally, it does not set a good example of healthy eat- ing. How, then, to change this dynamic? After testing several interventions, one stood out as particularly simple and effective: nudging parents to think of their meals as their own, rather than backup options for their kids. We part- nered with a nursery school that was inter- ested in promoting healthier eating among children. Par- ents associated with the school were of- fered a free family din- ner. Parents first choose a meal for their child from a healthy kid’s menu. They then chose a meal for them- selves from a menu that had a mix of healthy and unhealthy options. Half of the parents – randomly assigned – saw a menu that prompt- ed them to think of their meal as “for you and only you!” The other half did not see this additional prompt to think of their meal as only for them. This intervention was successful: By encourag- ing parents to think of their meals as their own, it made about a third more likely to choose the healthy option for them- selves. Our findings suggest policymakers and schools may want to con- sider the role parents – and their food choices – play in efforts to encour- age healthy eating among children. As for parents, we suggest nixing the backup plan and making sure both they and their children are eating nu- tritiously.
