Video of address to meeting Citing examples from Afghanistan, Haiti, Kosovo and Burundi, Mr. Annan said the UN can and should work together with regional bodies to establish peace and security and to help reconstruct States emerging from crisis and conflict.But he told the Council’s meeting on cooperation between the UN and regional organizations that many of the partnerships so far have been improvised, rather than targeted to specific strengths.”I believe that more institutionalized channels of cooperation would help ensure more efficiency and effectiveness, and perhaps even economies of scale,” he said, pointing out that future partnerships must be shaped according to the individual challenges that arise.Mr. Annan said the UN will soon hold talks with regional groups about setting up cooperation mechanisms on several issues, including the protection of civilians in armed conflict, promoting tolerance and dialogue among civilizations.The next high-level meeting between the UN and regional bodies is scheduled to take place in mid-2005, and he said the talks may eventually become an annual event.The Secretary-General also praised regional organizations for having resources “on the ground” much more quickly than the UN in many cases.”However, not all regional organizations can sustain their deployments over a long period. And the legitimacy that flows from UN operations is often needed for longer-term sustainability.”In the debate following Mr. Annan’s address, many speakers – representing Member States and regional organizations – said that those groups played a vital role in promoting peace and stability.Several speakers also stressed that future partnerships between the UN and regional bodies must be tailored to suit the specific case and always be flexible in case change is required.

Caterpillar has agreed a five-year deal with leading international mining group, Rio Tinto, to support and supply a broad range of Cat® equipment to Rio Tinto mines worldwide. It is the second consecutive five-year agreement between the two companies, but expands to include the full range of Cat equipment. As part of this agreement Rio mine personnel, Cat dealers and Caterpillar employees will work collaboratively to improve machine and mine performance.“Rio Tinto has been and continues to be a valued customer, so we are thrilled to be expanding our products and services provided to them,” said Chris Curfman, President of the Caterpillar Global Mining Division. “The purchase, supply and support agreement will leverage the full range of Cat equipment and showcase the strengths of Cat mining dealers.”Some 90% of Rio Tinto’s assets are in Australia, North America and Europe. Additionally, the company has significant businesses in South America, Asia and southern Africa. The majority of the mines are open-pit operations and the majority of equipment supplied by Cat will be surface mining equipment, including large mining trucks, track-type tractors, large wheel loaders and motor graders.In June Caterpillar announced that it is accelerating capacity expansion plans for trucks in Decatur, Illinois, USA, with additional capacity expected to come on line beginning in 2011. The expansion in Decatur will increase truck capacity at the facility by nearly 30%. Decatur produces Caterpillar’s largest mining trucks, including the new 795F AC electric drive truck, the first AC electric truck ever manufactured by Caterpillar. Pre-production models of the 795F AC are being tested at a Rio Tinto mine. read more

With current cost pressures on mines in South Africa and elsewhere, the role of procurement officers in saving unnecessary expenditure has become vitally important. Procurement officers are being increasingly relied upon to save money for the mine, according to SPH Kundalila Group Commercial and Operations Manager Graeme Campbell. He suggests a few practical ways in which these individuals can do this while achieving optimal results from their purchases.Firstly, says Campbell, procurement officers must know when and how to negotiate. This begins with learning more about every aspect of mine procurement that they are required to control. While not being expected to be experts in every field, they can learn a lot by sitting down with contractors and service providers to gain insights into the work that is to be done.“Suppliers can actually be important assets that many procurement officers fail to tap into,” he says. “Contractors like SPH Kundalila, for instance, have decades of experience and have acquired expert knowledge of the field they function in, from industry costs and new products right through to insights into important role players in the sector and the pioneering technology available.”Armed with this kind of industry knowledge, procurement officers can negotiate more beneficial and cost saving contracts with better levels of service provision.The second way to ensure good value for mine expenditure is to define an accurate scope of work, says Campbell. “A tender bid can be a daunting and time consuming process, and more time can be lost when trying to compare contractors’ quotations when the scope is too vague,” he says. “The answer is to start off a tender process by stating exactly – and in detail – what the scope of the work will be. Getting contractors to quote according to these specifications will makes comparisons easier, and expose any hidden costs.”Issuing a clear and detailed tender will also serve as a ‘dry run’ to gauge a contractor’s quality of service, he argues. Experienced companies, such as SPH Kundalila, have trained personnel and support teams who understand the tender’s requirements, and can quickly clarify any point of a quote or contract.Thirdly, urges Campbell, draw from the expertise inside your own company. He says the bidding process is really an opportunity for all the mine’s departments to find the best possible contractors for their purposes.“Bringing the input together from colleagues and department heads during a bidding process requires strong, trusting relationships between them,” he says. “Procurement officers should invest time in building these relationships with other departments, as colleagues may know of affordable service providers in the market that procurement officers are unaware of.” A unified approach motivates all departments – and even contractors – to work together for the greater good of the mine. read more

They were given six weeks’ notice at the end of May. The service will officially cease on 7 July.However, a fire at the main centre in the Coolmine Industrial Estate over the June Bank Holiday weekend has led to the closure of the building.Staff are currently only providing outreach services, and the centre will not open before Adapt ceases operating entirely.A protest against the closure will be held later this afternoon at Mulhuddart Village.Workers have written to Minister of State Catherine Byrne and Varadkar (who is a local TD in the area) requesting a meeting over the closure.Adapt began operating in the late 1990s. It is a drop-in and support service for people dealing with drug issues.The organisation provides wrap-around support for people dealing with drug or alcohol misuse issues. It provides social care services, crisis management and intervention, one-to-one support and an outreach service among others.It also provides a childcare service for people who are seeking treatment.The service would deal with in the region of a thousand people a year across its services.Adapt had been funded by the HSE, but was its own company with its own Board of Management.The Board of Management announced to staff last month that they were closing Adapt, and making the 13 staff redundant. Staff claim they were not given a reason why.“Unbelievable” Maureen Penrose – who lobbied to have the service opened 20 years ago before becoming a full-time worker there – told TheJournal.ie that staff at the service were deeply disappointed with the decision to close.“I think it’s a huge loss to the community,” said Penrose. Short URL Now we’re back to where we were 20 years ago, lobbying to have more service for the area.Penrose claimed staff had been kept in the dark about why the Board of Management had decided to close the centre.She said the Board had approached staff with a restructuring plan for the organisation at the end of March. Staff did not accept the plan, which included a number of redundancies.Penrose said that staff were then informed last month that they were being made redundant.TheJournal.ie contacted the director of the board in relation to the closure. The director said that Board was not commenting on the closure.The HSE said in a statement that it “fully supports” the decision of the Board to wind down Adapt.CommunityLocal Solidarity TD Ruth Coppinger – who is supporting the workers – told TheJournal.ie that the local community would suffer as a result of the closure.“It’s very unfair,” said Coppinger.To just simply close it down and make redundant staff with lots of experience.Coppinger said that Varadkar and Byrne should meet with the workers to discuss their issues.The HSE said that it was working hard to ensure that all Adapt service users would be linked in with and transferred to other supports in the area.“Our priority now is to ensure that service users are linked in with other services in the area and that these services are enhanced and sustainable,” said Donal Cassidy CHO DNCC.Adapt staff said many services will be lost in this transition, including the drop-in and childcare services.Read: ‘It takes me away from this world for the day’: Life as a homeless drug-user on the streets of DublinRead: Cannabis is the most commonly used illegal drug among young adults in Ireland (but MDMA use is on the rise) read more
Extremely Rare, Two-Colored Lobster Found in MaineNew Species of Giant Flying Reptile Identified By Scientists Stay on target Say hello to Big Blue: Botswana unveiled an extremely rare “Fancy Deep Blue” diamond weighing more than 20 carats on Wednesday. The “Okavango Blue” is the largest blue diamond discovery ever made in the country, and exceeds the clarity and purity of its world-famous predecessor, the Hope Diamond.According to a press release from the Okavango Diamond Co., the diamond’s “unique and vibrant blue color is created by the molecular inclusion of the rare mineral boron which between 1-3 billion years ago was present in the rocks of ancient oceans during violent diamond forming volcanic activity.”The oval-shaped diamond was discovered as a 41.11 carat rough stone. It was then cut and polished, retaining 20.46 carats. At just over 20 carats, the Okavango Blue is smaller than the Hope Diamond, which is housed at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., but graded above it in terms of purity by the Carlsbad, California-based Gemological Institute of America (GIA), Okavango Diamond Co. Managing Director Marcus ter Haar told Bloomberg.The GIA has graded the diamond as “Very, Very Slightly Included,” or VVS2, meaning inclusions — internal imperfections — “are difficult for a skilled grader to see under 10x magnification.”In comparison, the Hope Diamond was graded a “Very Slightly Included,” or VS1 grade, according to the Smithsonian, meaning “inclusions are minor and range from difficult to somewhat easy for a skilled grader to see under 10x magnification.”“It is incredibly unusual for a stone of this color and nature to have come from Botswana – a once-in-lifetime find, which is about as rare as a star in the Milky Way,” said ter Haar. “It is little surprise blue diamonds are so sought after around the world as only a very small percentage of the world’s diamonds are classified as fancy color.”Blue diamonds are incredibly rare, comprising a minute 2/100ths of 1 percent of all mined. As the Okavango Diamond Co. undertakes a global marketing campaign for its gem of a find among high net-worth buyers and collectors, the diamond could likely go for millions.In 2016, a massive blue diamond, dubbed the Cullinan Dream, sold for a whopping $25.3 million at auction, breaking the record for most expensive gem of its kind ever sold, according to the New York Daily News.More on Geek.com:This Egg-Sized Diamond Is the Largest Ever Found in North America4.5 Billion-Year-Old Heart-Shaped Meteorite Up for AuctionRare Penny Found in Boy’s Lunch Money Could Fetch Up to $1.7 Million in Auction read more
A stock photo of a BB gun found in the possession of a man shot and killed by Anchorage police on April 1, 2019. (Photo courtesy Anchorage Police Department)Anchorage police shot and killed a man Monday after he allegedly pointed what looked like a handgun at officers. They later discovered it was a BB gun. According to Anchorage Police Chief Justin Doll, the incident started in midtown.“We started getting some calls from Anchorage residents in the area of Walmart on A Street, about a subject who appeared to have a handgun and was waving it around,” the police chief said.Doll said the subject was described to police as an adult male wearing a “puffy jacket.” He boarded a bus, getting off a few blocks later near the intersection of A Street and 16th Avenue, according to police.Doll said officers arrived in the area and “made contact” with the suspect, who turned around and walked towards the officers. Police said he disobeyed verbal commands, produced a handgun from his waistband area and pointed it towards officers. Three officers fired and the man was hit, police said. Officers provided first aid and responding medics transported the man to a hospital, where he later died.According to Doll there were no bystanders in the area. He says the incident unfolded in seconds. It wasn’t until police began investigating the scene that they learned the pistol was actually a replica-style BB gun.“It looks pretty much identical to a real firearm,” Doll said.The victim was identified on Tuesday afternoon as 31-year-old Bishar Hassan. He’d recently been arrested in connection with charges of harassment stemming from a 2018 incident at a cannery in Unalaska. Court records show he bailed out about a week ago.This is the second officer-involved shooting in Anchorage so far this year. The last one happened on March 7. In keeping with department rules, all three officers who fired shots have been placed on administrative leave and will be identified three days after the incident.The Office of Special Prosecution is expected to review what happened, along with an investigation by the Anchorage Police Department’s Internal Affairs unit. read more

Major Indian e-commerce players Flipkart, Snapdeal, Alibaba and Aditya Birla group’s Abof.com are in the race to acquire Jabong, an Indian fashion and lifestyle e-commerce portal. The initial rounds of talks are on as owners AB Kinnevik, a Swedish investment firm, and Rocket Internet are looking to sell the company and exit India operations.The owners are reluctant to pump in more capital into the e-commerce firm.The firm has been holding talks with potential buyers for the sale process and hope to close the deal in six month’s time, Mint reported.The value of the deal is expected to be between $250 and $300 million.”Jabong has held talks with these four companies over the past few weeks. While none of the negotiations has reached an advanced stage, the deal size could be around two times its annual sales,” a source was quoted as saying by the Economic Times.The Gurgaon-based e-commerce portal, which is owned by Global Fashion Group (GFG), initially held discussions with Amazon, but the talks reportedly fell through in the initial stages.By the end of May, Jabong has reported a 14 percent increase in revenue to â‚¬32.8 million during the March quarter. Jabong’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation loss reduced to â‚¬11.9 million from â‚¬16.3 million during the same quarter in the previous financial year (2014-15).Four months ago, the loss-making firm received funding of Rs. 2 crore to help it remain afloat. Oliver Samwer, CEO of Rocket Internet and deputy chairman at GFG, was reportedly not in favour of continuing its India operations. However, Kinnevik insisted on backing the company and the board finally agreed to infuse the amount into Jabong.Major e-commerce players Snapdeal, Flipkart, Amazon India have reported losses for the financial year 2014-15. According to a report in the Indian Express, Snapdeal recorded losses worth Rs. 1,328.01 crore. Amazon India’s clocked Rs. 1,723.6 crore and Flipkart reported losses of Rs. 2,000 crore. On the other hand, Jabong, in a filing with the registrar of companies, posted a loss of Rs. 43.6 crore as against sales of Rs. 1,082.9 crore. In the last few quarters, e-commerce retailers have brought down discount levels as investors are increasingly pressurising firms to turn profitable. “InJanuary-March, we have reduced our discount levels by 10 per cent to 15 per cent and in the October-December quarter, we had reduced discount levels by around 6 per cent. Women and footwear categories discount levels have declined sharply,” Sanjeev Mohanty, chief executive officer of Jabong, had told the Indian Express in March.[1 lakh = 100,000 | 1 crore = 10 million | 100 crore = 1 billion] read more
Welcome back to Geek.com’s Origin of the Species. Each time out we’ll take a look at one of our favorite fantasy, science fiction, or horror races or species, going in-depth exploring their origins in fiction, mythology, and etymology. Check out our previous installments on the history of orcs and zombies!Pop culture is lousy with robots. They’re everywhere! Whether you’re talking about the droids of Stars Wars, synthetic men like Marvel’s Vision, or countless other examples, you can’t swing a dead cat around your head without hitting a robot, android, gynoid or, at the very least, a cyborg. But while robots are a staple of science fiction books, films, television, and comics, they have far, far older origins than most people realize.The first use of the word robot was way back in 1920, in the science fiction play R.U.R. Czech playwright Karel Čapek was the first to use the term in a published work, but claimed that it was his brother Josef – himself a painter and writer – who actually coined the term as a take on the Czech word robota. From there, it didn’t take long for “robot” to begin to replacing much older words, like “automaton” and “android.” While “automaton,” “android,” and even “robot” as used in the present-day refer generally to any kind of mechanical entity, one with a specific set of tasks and orders, the original use of the word, as seen in R.U.R., is much more specific and cynical.In Czech, robota actually means forced labor, as in that done by serfs and peasants, and it is derived from an even more dire term, rab, which means slave. As such, in the first published mention of them, robots are shown to be a type of working class who are disregarded and disrespected by their masters until they, inevitably, rise up in their discontent. This specific interpretation of robots, due to its obvious allegorical usages, has remained a popular way to depict the entities, perhaps nowhere more notably than in the world of The Matrix.Interestingly, the year 1920, in which the word “robot” first appeared in R.U.R., also saw the birth of a man who did more than anyone to promote the concept of robots in popular culture, establishing them as a staple of science fiction and even providing a set of enormously influential “laws” by which robots should operate. That man was, of course, Isaac Asimov, and his science fiction writing – specifically that centered on robots – casts a long, long shadow in not just sci-fi, but all of pop culture.From Asimov, robots proliferated wildly in countless genres and subgenres. Everything from B-movies about space travel, to comic book superheroes and villains, to even rock songs like Styx’s “Mr. Roboto.” But all of that stuff is pretty easy to track, as well as common knowledge to the type of pop culture savants who tend to cruise Geek.com. That’s why we’re going to look back further, to the antecedents of the gleaming metal men and women you’ve grown to love.Obviously, pre-1920 robots aren’t referred to as such, as the term didn’t yet exist. But you don’t even need to squint to realize that many of the automatons and artificial lifeforms that populate fiction, myths, and even religious texts, are much closer to robots than anything else. The oldest of these, and the first appearance of anything robot-esque in Western literature, appears in a piece of foundational fiction: Homer’s Iliad. In it, the god of fire, volcanoes, and blacksmithing, Hephaestus, has a squad of golden maidservants that help him craft armor for Achilles. Though they were not real women, they nonetheless looked like them, and were trained to serve the god in his work.Other early appearances of robot-esque entities include a set of dry bones that became animated in the biblical book of Ezekiel, Pygmalion’s living statue Galatea, and even a set of moving tables created, once again, by Hephaestus. Perhaps most notable of all these ur-robots, however, is the Jewish myth of the golem.In Jewish mythology, just as God created man from clay, man could, himself, create a being in his own image using clay and chunks of stone. Though the legend of the Prague golem is the most famous, the creature can be found in numerous sources, with various takes on the specifics of its creation and how it’s controlled. Most of them, however, feature, to one degree or another, an idea that would become central to robot-based literature: That man, in attempting to create life on his own, commits a dangerous act of hubris, at best a risky endeavor and at worst, an affront to the gods themselves.Nowhere is this clearer, however, than in a tale that has transcended its literary origins to become a pop culture staple: Frankenstein’s monster. While the creature has been largely claimed by the horror genre – unsurprising, as it’s a kind of hybrid between a zombie and an automaton – the original version of the creature, as seen in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, has a lot in common with modern robots. Frankenstein creates his monster in a laboratory, animating it with electricity, and giving it only limited capabilities which, inevitably, go awry, further driving home that frequent robot metaphor.Robots have long been an important part of humanity’s fictional endeavors, with many appearances predating the actual existence of the term. But despite being a concept that has existed consistently since antiquity, robots remain a valuable trope and a useful metaphor for exploring concepts as varied as man’s hubris, the nature and responsibility of creation, and even class struggle and the horrors of slavery.What are your favorite depictions of robots in literature and pop culture?

Jeff Fagnan, partner at Atlas VentureImage credit: Atlas Venture Geoff Mamlet, managing director at CICImage credit: CIC.us The Milken Institute wrapped up 2013 with a report listing the best performing cities in job creation, wage growth and tech economic output. On the heels of yet another disappointing labor report, it’s important to applaud areas where job growth is thriving.Related: Why Our Job Market Is Dying Before Our EyesCommunities in California such as (surprise, surprise) San Francisco, San Mateo, San Jose, and Sunnyvale stood out as the most fertile grounds for innovation. Three-thousand miles away from the Silicon Valley sunshine, the Cambridge-Newton area of Massachusetts also won accolades in this category. It had the overall third-highest share of tech economic output in the nation, second to San Jose, Calif., and Boulder, Colo. Meanwhile, entrepreneurs are increasingly discovering new frontiers in cheaper, emerging tech hubs. Austin, Texas, was ranked the overall best-performing city, with its low-tax and low-regulation environment. Also, financial firms are launching global tech centers in low-cost Raleigh, N.C.As newer, cheaper startup scenes develop across the country, it’s important to dissect how established tech cities are upheld as landmarks for U.S. innovation. The Milken report says, “Tech firms don’t just fall from the sky. The leading tech metros cultivated these assets through indigenous innovation and strategic recruitment.”Five leaders from Cambridge’s startup scene say it also takes relentless networking.

Companies are continuing to invest in untapped talent.When it comes to recruiting top human capital, Nitesh Banta of General Catalyst Partners says his firm’s Harvard Square office is financing a student-run seed stage fund, managed by Rough Draft Ventures. A student team selects undergrad entrepreneurs to receive funding of up to $25,000.Banta says they sift through programs from all neighboring colleges, and not just Harvard and MIT campuses: “We’ve backed great teams from Olin, where the student body is very technical. For being a young school, it already has a notable engineering department.”He adds that Northeastern University has a highly developed student-run venture accelerator lab and Boston University has some of the best professors in business marketing and communications. “These two fields are filling critical roles for expanding tech companies,” Banta says. Tufts University also has a strong entrepreneurial leadership program.Peter Boyce, who co-founded Rough Draft with fellow Harvard alum Banta, says the organization is set up to connect with students every semester, including the summer. “They know they could reach us year-round if they need access to office space, or even just mentorship,” Boyce says.

A new era of angel activity has emerged.Throughout the 1990s, the tech behemoths of yesteryear, such as Apollo, DEC and Data General, were dispersed throughout towns like Waltham, Burlington and Andover. Today, the high-tech scene has moved from these expansive New England suburbs to clusters within Cambridge and the greater Boston area. “The return to the city is driven by younger entrepreneurs,” says Jeff Fagnan, a partner at early-stage VC firm Atlas Venture. “This density of networking companies is causing a thriving nucleus of activity.”Just last month, Atlas Venture hosted a dinner in Central Square and invited the top startup founders, venture capitalists and angel investors in the neighborhood. It was for their launch of the first “Boston Syndicate” on AngelList. Atlas pledged to invest up to $250,000 into deals made through that syndicate.“Angel investors have a responsibility to invest in the next generation of entrepreneurs, now we’re going to make it financially worth their while,” says Fagnan. The places were set for notable players such as DataXu CEO Mike Baker, PayPal Media Network COO David Chang and Highland Capital venture partner Walt Doyle, among others. By the time dessert was served, two startups had secured angel funding, including Drizly, the alcoholic beverage delivery app.Fagnan says that while he is always concerned about whether people can work for startups while living in an expensive city, he says that a new era of liquidity in the region will breathe new life into Cambridge’s small business scene. “As some companies are getting bigger and purchased, these entrepreneurs who have had successful exits will too become angel investors,” says Fagnan.

Investors are asking young innovators to “Stay in MA” even after they graduate.Five years ago, when partners from Flybridge Capital Partners attended venture industry events, they noticed something was missing.“We realized there weren’t any students in the audience,” says Kate Castle, VP of marketing at Flybridge Capital Partners. “We’re focused on seed stage businesses, the founders of which are mostly from the student population.”In 2008, the firm launched the Stay in MA scholarship program. They pay the admission for graduate and undergraduate students who wish to attend conferences and workshops throughout the state, including the recent four-day Massachusetts Hackathon. Flybridge awards up to $100 per event. If the price of admission exceeds $100, the firm negotiates the price for their scholars. The firm grants about 300 scholarships per year to students from 30-35 different school in the state. Castle says, “If we can help students make more relationships in this city, then we would love to have them stay here.”The firm plans to launch a similar program in NYC. “It sold out fast,” says Mayo. “It saw a record level of participation, so we decided to hold this twice a year and open it to the public.”Sandra Glucksmann, COO and founder of Editas Medicine (a gene editing company) is Chair of the WEST Board. “She volunteers her time to run mentoring groups, facilitate panel discussions, and offers support to early level WEST members,” says Mayo.Elizabeth Levy, who co-chairs the New England chapter of the Siemens Healthcare Women’s Information Network and Diversity Council, and Georgia Mitsi, the founder and CEO of Apptomics, which creates apps for managing neurological conditions, are among WEST’s 350 active members.

In addition to this trinity, the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) may be the fourth powerhouse behind the city’s startup scene. The low-cost incubator has counted more than 1,200 new companies as tenants. It also hosts invaluable networking events, including its most recent Innovation in the City conference in early January. “We believe that by bringing together a broad array of market players into one place, magic can happen,” says Geoff Mamlet, managing director of CIC.While paying small-town wages and rent can save a startup some cash, he says entrepreneurs must prioritize easy access to talent, a vibrant investor community and research facilities.“The best entrepreneurs don’t really care a whole lot about the cost,” says Mamlet. “If you have a bunch of top venture investors pouring millions into your company, what you care about is where to get access to the best, most readily-available resources for the next phase of growth.” He continues to seek leasing opportunities to expand in Boston.

of poetry ‘Kin Miniaan’ (droplets of drizzle) For someone whose being is inspired by the beauty and simplicity of life poetry is the only expression that can manifest life’s magnificence Share This Article Related Article “Poetry is my earnest and natural expression and this book which is my second the first being in Hindustani has been written for my daughter a constant source of inspiration and encouragement” reflects Mitwa at the release of the book (published by Unistar) at Punjab Kala Bhawan on Tuesday The title of the Punjabi anthology adds the poet is a reflection of the philosophy of the poems “like no one can measure or count the droplets of a drizzle likewise in life there are many things that cannot be explained” From celestial thoughts to ground reality the verses are drawn from the many experiences that Mitwa had as an Air Force officer He has also worked on numerous social projects including working with children as well as the environment and nature as a whole The poetry is resonant of the many extremes so apart from the beauty Mitwa focuses on various social evils that mar our existence “Purity of the rain to the filth of the drain” The verses also talk about human relationships the potential of life and ironically the limited time we have here and how easily we sometimes throw away things Writing poetry is a compulsion and a reality for Mitwa and if it becomes socially relevant and impactful it is a blessing he adds “I was uprooted from my family in the 1947 tragedy and ever since the sharp nails of reality guide my writing I work with weeds not

Mamata Banerjee File photo PTI But times have changed An unprecedented alliance between the Left Front and Congress which was borne out of desperation has since gained in strength and is now giving Mamata sleepless nights CPI(M)’s tallest leader Buddhadeb Bhattacharya and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi engaged in open courtship on a public platform on Wednesday Momentum that inexplicable yet crucial ingredient for success seems to be on the alliance’s side Even the BJP shows no signs of giving up its ghost without a fight and in Bhawanipore it is on a strong turf Four phases of six out the way the West Bengal Assembly election bandwagon now reaches the Chief Minister’s doorstep and it is here that the opposition — both Left front-Congress alliance and BJP — have decided to launch the bitterest of battles leaving no stone unturned to give Mamata Banerjee a bloodied nose In its symbolic importance intensity and desperation the battle of Bhawanipore reflects accurately the tense war that is under way within the confines of Bengal The script has suddenly become so tight that even the bravest of pundits are keeping cards close to their chests If TMC has didi (elder sister) Congress has unleashed boudi (sister-in-law) to counter her The wife of Congress heavyweight Priya Ranjan Dasmunshi — the former information and broadcasting minister who now remains permanently comatose from brain damage — Deepa Dasmunshi has proven to be a formidable challenger One of the most prominent figures in Bengal politics former Union minister Deepa has launched a door-to-door campaign ever since being nominated The Congress star candidate has also benefited immensely from the Left Front’s organisational strength From flags festoons to rallies attended by top CPI(M) leaders the Left Front has gone the extra mile to make the alliance a success The girl-next-door as Deepa identifies herself to Bhawanipore voters having been born and brought up here has made corruption and lack of jobs her polling plank She is crisscrossing the wards with tireless enthusiasm and driving home the message that this time it is a fight between "democracy and despotism" From questioning the integrity of Mamata over the Sarada and Narada scams to skewering her for the lack of big ticket industry in Bengal Deepa who lost the 2014 Lok Sabha polls from Raiganj to CPI(M)’s Mohammad Salim has shown she isn’t intimidated by the scale of her challenge Bhawanipore the birthplace of Satyajit Ray Shyama Prasad Mookerjee and Subhas Chandra Bose is as cosmopolitan a constituency as it gets Bengalis are almost a minority here The Marwari and Gujarati communities have a strong presence amounting to almost 65000 a sizeable 25 per cent of the voter base Punjabi and Bihari communities too have an equally muscular attendance Wards 63 70 72 and 74 are considered to be BJP bastions and if the saffron party manages to hold on to its voter base (though it is far from certain) the BJP may turn out to the game-changer in Mamata Banerjee’s seat In the 2014 general elections though TMC’s Subrata Bakshi eventually beat BJP’s Tathagata Roy in south Kolkata seat by over 136000 votes Bakshi trailed Roy by 185 votes in the Bhawanipore Assembly segment In last year’s city civic polls the ruling party lost one of the wards to BJP Mindful of the demographics BJP president Amit Shah held a rally in Bhawanipore on Wednesday and issued a clarion call asking voters to help BJP win "just one seat" The one here The rest will take care of itself "On my way to Bengal today I met a youngster at the airport I thought that he was out to click a selfie with me He just asked me where I was headed When I replied that I am on my way to Kolkata he said that we need 150 seats to bring about a change I told him there will be change even if we manage a single seat Bhawanipore it is" Shah said on Wednesday In this season of overt and covert alliances Shah also accused the TMC of striking some sort of an understanding with Left Front and Congress "Mamata Banerjee appears to be fighting against the Congress and the Left but when it comes to the AugustaWestland scam she doesn’t utter a single word against Sonia Gandhi" quipped Shah Though the BJP has fielded a rookie candidate in Chandra Kumar Bose the grand nephew of Subhas Chandra Bose the party is banking on its traditional strength in this part of the city and has pulled out all stops to make itself count Towards that end Shah met members of the Punjabi community after the rally Bose who lobbied hard for declassifying the Netaji files has not managed to rent even an office space in the locality instead operating out of his residence Netaji Bhavan The new BJP inductee has put all his eggs in the non-Bengali basket "Mamata Banerjee has created a faade She is certainly a mass leader But unfortunately she has miserably failed to keep the commitment that she had made during the 2011 elections which brought her to power She’s not a person for governance" said Bose The fifth phase is on 30 April (Saturday) and it is only on Monday that Mamata Banerjee held her first rally in Bhawanipore It is a testament to the difficulty she is facing in this election where virtually all her trusted generals are suffering from a stunning lack of credibility having tangled themselves in either the Sarada or the Narada scams Mindful of the corruption fire that threatens to engulf her party Mamata has thrust herself as the "only candidate" in all 294 seats which also meant that she had to roam around every inch of the state to canvass for votes leaving her with little time for own constituency But the chief minister is still confident that Bhawanipore won’t fail her "I am your candidate This is my neighborhood and I am sorry I haven’t been able to come here before Never has Bengal seen such a long election — three months I have been travelling across the 294 constituencies and there are still some left I have come here as soon as I could and I have come here to ask for your blessings" she said If the leaders are restive so too are the cops The troops are ready to lay down their lives for Didi and the Election Commission has its job cut out After a stellar show in the fourth phase which almost went off without a glitch Bhawanipore has caused more than a few creases on

the department a proposal to bring in a new software — Microsoft Dynamics — was floated ESPL bagged the project even though it did not participate in the tender floated by ICSIL alleged CBI sources claiming that a “bribe of Rs 22 lakh was paid by a vendor to ESPL” The contract for maintenance of this software also went to ESPL “Rajendra Kumar asked ICSIL to find a new company in place of CMC which was then maintaining the VAT platform ICSIL opened a tender for just one day Only one company applied and qualified: ESPL A contract worth Rs 77 lakh was given to it” a CBI officer said Following this CBI sources said as the Centre pushed to standardise VAT across the country Rajendra Kumar played a role in floating “a tailormade tender where a technical specification was added that only those with some experience on Microsoft Dynamics would get the project” “The award of the contract went to ESPL for Rs 487 crore” said the officer The corruption case was registered based on a
