An Interview with CBSE Class 12 Exam Topper Mohammad Ismat

Posted: 29 May 2012 08:25 AM PDT

Manipuri boy Mohammad Ismat, who scored the highest marks in this year’s All India Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (AISSCE), says the word impossible does not cross his mind.

“I have a strong conviction that everything is possible when a man is determined,” Ismat said Tuesday, a day after he scored 99 percent marks in the Class 12 science stream examination conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE).

He secured 100 marks each in Mathematics, Chemistry, Home Science and Fine Arts, and 97 in Physics and 98 in English, scoring 495 out of 500.

“It is indeed great. I proved myself and confirmed that the northeast India has more such brilliant students. They sould be properly nourished,” the 21-year-old student of Manipur’s Zenith Academy said.

He noted his family’s poverty, and said: “After passing Class 10 examination, I planned to study in a good school in Imphal… but I could not, because of the financial difficulties faced by my family.”

Ismat, a Meitei Pangal (Manipuri Muslim), has now become the first student in the entire northeastern region to top the AISSCE examination.

A resident of Manipuri Muslim-dominated Lilong Haoreibi village in Thoubal district, Ismat is the only boy and the youngest of seven children of Mohammad Bashirur Rahman, a government primary school teacher.

The boy began his primary education in a local English medium school before switching over to a Kendriya Vidyalaya in Imphal where he studied up to Class 8. Later, he joined the Sainik School Imphal where he scored 94.2 percent marks in the Class 10 CBSE examination.

Expressing his gratitude for his school teachers, he said: “Sir S.M. Singh, the management secretary of Zenith Academy, accepted my request to (let me) study in the school at a minimum fee, and with his kind guidance and advice I have come out with flying colours.”

Besides scripting history in the entire northeast, Ismat is now looking forward to set another record in the civil services exams. “I want to be an IAS (Indian Administrative Service) officer.”

“I’m planning to study at St. Stephen’s College in New Delhi and work hard to top the civil services exams too,” said Ismat, who considers books his best friends.

Expressing happiness over his son’s achievement, an excited Bashirur Rahman said, “My happiness knew no bounds. My son Ismat has done it and I think he would definitely become a leader to guide thousands of poor students to become great personalities.”

The school — Zenith Academy — also went into celebrations over Ismat’s success.

Manufacturing Sector rejoices on depreciating Rupee

Posted: 29 May 2012 07:36 AM PDT

While the depreciating rupee is giving sleepless nights to many, it is a huge opportunity for India’s manufacturing exporters as their goods are now cheaper in dollar terms, the Federation of Indian Micro and Small and Medium Enterprises (FISME) says.

The currency of India’s major competitor China is getting stronger by the day which means their goods are becoming costlier in terms of dollars,” FISME President V.K. Agarwal told IANS.

“The currencies of other competing countries such as Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia have also depreciated but much less than what the Indian rupee has done, thus adding to Indian competitivenes,” he added.

According to Jagannadham Thunuguntla, strategist and head of research in brokerage firm SMC Global, while firms importing components are having a tough time, this is a boon for SMEs exporting products.

“The problem lies in import, but small enterprises who are into exporting will benefit almost by 20 to 22 percent due to the rupee depreciation,” Thunuguntla told IANS.

He also said that the rupee, which is currently trading at over 55 against the US dollar, will go over 60 in the coming days.

The rupee fell to a record low of 56.40 against dollar last week owing to the high inflation and huge current account and fiscal deficits. The currency however has recovered since then and was trading at 55.60 in the early trade Tuesday.

Economic Advisor in Ministry of Finance Kaushik Basu has also called depreciation “an opportunity” to export more.

FISME feels that Indian manufacturers must exploit this currency-generated price advantage to penetrate new geographies such as the ASEAN group of countries, Africa or Latin America.

Since the 1990s, Indian manufactured goods have been facing intense competition from Chinese goods in domestic as well as in global markets. Indian manufacturers have often pointed out that the key reasons for the dominance of Chinese products were export subsidy and currency manipulations in China.

Over the last 13 months, however, the Indian currency has depreciated by around 27 percent against the US dollar while the Chinese renminbi has appreciated continuously – by 40 percent since 2005 and by 12 percent since June 2010.

At the same time, the currencies of competing economies have depreciated only marginally – the Vietnamese dong by 0.4 percent, the Malaysian ringgit by four percent, the Thai baht by four percent and the Indonesian ruppiah by eight percent.

Suu Kyi is also an style icon in Myanmar

Posted: 29 May 2012 06:37 AM PDT

Suu KyiAt 66, Aun San Suu Kyi is not just an enduring inspiration for millions in Myanmar but also a style icon with her elegance and sheer simplicity.

The pro-democracy leader, who met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh here Tuesday, has been the picture of grace through her years of house arrest and personal tragedy – losing her husband to cancer and being unable to visit him while he was ailing.

A gentle smile, flowers tucked in her hair tied in a bun and dressed in the traditional blouse (anyi) and sarong (longyi) with just the slightest hint of makeup, the willowy Suu Kyi has aged little over the years.

The Irrawaddy magazine’s website recalled how the Suu Kyi fever first took root in the 1990s with Myanmarese women showing support to their icon by ordering their tailors to copy her clothes.

An “Aung San Suu Kyi-style front-fastening tunic” and a “Daw Suu-inspired neckline” were requests that were heard.

According to an estimate, just over half of Myanmar’s population of over 54 million are women.

Suu Kyi, who spent 15 out of 21 years under house arrest, reportedly received many gifts of clothes but mostly ordered fabrics from Yangon’s Scott Market, and designed the patterns herself.

On the day she was set free from house arrest in November 2010, she wore a light plum-coloured outfit. The pink-purple combination soon caught on.

Always in the public eye, the Nobel laureate who won the April 1 by-election campaign that her party swept, has been meeting a galaxy of world leaders who have been frequenting the country.

She has shown her openness for a rich variety of colours, and Myanmar’s many women have been quick to take tips from her impeccable style statement.

She also promised to deliver a lecture in India after an invite from Congress leader Sonia Gandhi. Manmohan Singh met Suu Kyi here on the third and final day of his official visit to Myanmar – a dozen agreements were inked between the two countries Monday. And in a measure of how she feels, Suu Kyi came to Manmohan Singh’s hotel although other world leaders have always called on her.

“…India and Burma have been particularly close over the years not just because of our geographical positions but because we have shared deep ties of friendship for many, many long years,” the Nobel Laureate told the media after their over 45-minute meeting.

“The struggle for India’s independence took place at the same time as the struggle for Burma’s independence. My parents were great admirers of (India’s first prime minister) Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and other Indian leaders, but we were particularly close to Panditji as I was taught to call him from a very young age,” said a smiling Suu Kyi, who leaves Tuesday night for Thailand on her first overseas trip in nearly 25 years.

Wearing a purple dress embellished with flowers, the National League for Democracy leader said: “I am very happy at the prospect of closer ties with India because I think we have much to learn from one another and we have much to contribute to peace and stability in this region, because our goals, our democratic goals, work on the basis of peace and stability, and these are what we shall aim towards.”

Responding to a request from Manmohan Singh to visit India, Suu Kyi said: “I am very gratified by the invitation to deliver the Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial Lecture, and I hope I will take up this invitation before too long.”

She hoped for greater exchanges “between our two peoples”.

As I said to the prime minister, true friendship between the countries can be based only on friendship between our peoples, and this is what I hope we will be able to achieve,” she added.

Manmohan Singh, who spoke first after their meeting, said: “We in India are very proud of our longstanding association with her and members of her family including her parents.

“I sincerely hope that she will find it possible to visit India soon,” he said.

Manmohan Singh said it had been a privilege to have met Suu Kyi, a democracy crusader who studied in New Delhi’s Lady Shri Ram College before pursuing higher studies in Oxford.

In a break from her previous meetings, Suu Kyi came to the Sedona Hotel to meet the prime minister. Other world leaders including Hillary Clinton have called on her at her lakeside villa where she spent long years under house arrest.

Manmohan Singh said he had handed over an invitation letter from Sonia Gandhi to deliver the annual Jawaharlal Nehru memorial lecture.

He lauded Suu Kyi and said her life was one of “struggle and determination (which) has inspired millions of people all over the world”.

He added that the she will play “a defining role” in the process of national reconciliation launched by President Thein Sein.

Suu Kyi took oath as a parliamentarian May 2.

Many world leaders are now visiting Myanmar following dramatic reforms initiated by the military junta. Myanmar has been under military rule for five decades.

The reforms are being powered by President Sein, who shed the uniform to play a key role in the formation of the Union Solidarity and Development Party. Manmohan Singh met the former general Monday.

Suu Kyi, who didn’t leave Myanmar even when her huband was dying of cancer as she feared she won’t be allowed to return, is an iconic symbol of democracy in Myanmar, a country of over 54 million.

Born in June 1945, she was barely two when her father, independence hero Gen Aung San, was assassinated. She won the Nobel Peace prize in 1991.

Central Asian Antique tapestries to be auctioned in India

Posted: 29 May 2012 05:44 AM PDT

A selection of antique carpets, rugs, kilims, runners, tapestries and fragments from the famous weaving regions around Central Asia – known for their ancient wool weaving traditions – will be auctioned in Bangalore on June 11 by Indian auction house Bid & Hammer.

The auction will be the company’s first sale of antique textiles. The 120 lots on sale are estimated between $280 and $22,500. Most of the collectibles that will go under the hammer are more than 100 years old, a statement from the auction house said Monday.

The auction house said the collection includes tribal carpets from regions like the Caucasian mountains, located between the Black and Caspian seas, which have nations like Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Dagestan (Russia); the Persian Zagros mountains area; the Kurdish enclaves of Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria; the high and middle Atlas mountains of Morocco; and republics of Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan.

Almost all of the weaving groups from these regions were nomadic and migrated to other regions for climatic reasons. Their weaves reflect a potpourri of diverse ethnicities, tribal lifestyles and indigenous customs, the auction house said.

The material used for Central Asian carpets is a predominantly high mountain wool with some exceptions containing a little cotton. The colours are natural in the older 19th century samples. The new carpets of the early 20th century use inorganic colours.

The condition of the carpets varies from some seemingly untouched pristine antiques to those that have worn out and may have been repaired or left in their genuine used condition, the auction house said.

Chairman of Bid & Hammer M. Maher Dadha said, “The focus is on Central Asian tribal carpets. They are spontaneous and are personal expressions of the weavers.”

He added that the carpets on sale have been procured from private collectors from the US, Europe and Central Asia.

Describing one of the exhibits, Dadha said,”"One good example is the Karabagh rug which was woven in the southern Caucasus region in the last quarter of the 19th century”.

“It has unusual dyes and field patterns,” Dadha explained.

Other textiles accessories include a hand-woven woollen Amritsari carpet created in 1900 (estimated at Rs.1,30,000), a French Aubusson-style carpet (estimated at Rs.90,000) and a 19th Century Flemish tapestry of a landscape (estimated at Rs.2,50,000).

Historical accounts say the carpets in central Asia were woven by the Turkmen, Uzbeks, Tajiks, Karakalpaks, Kirghizs and Kazakhs; in northern and northeastern Persia; and in the Uighur areas of Sinkiang in China.

The oldest well-preserved knotted pile carpets and flat woven rugs were excavated at Pazyryk in southern Siberia by Russian archaeologist Sergei Rudenko.

Hindu Muslim Unity depicted at Mata Khir Bhawani Temple in Kashmir

Posted: 29 May 2012 04:53 AM PDT

Scores of Kashmir Pandit devotees thronged the Khirbhawani temple shrine in Jammu and Kashmir Tuesday amid emotional scenes of Hindu-Muslim amity.

Using buses, taxis and even two-wheelers, Hindus paid obeisance at the holiest Hindu shrine of Mata Khirbhawani in Tullamulla village, 24 km from summer capital Srinagar in Ganderbal district.

Elaborate security arrangements had been made by the authorities as most devotees arriving at the shrine were Hindus who had left the Kashmir Valley in the early 1990s with the outbreak of separatist violence.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah also paid obeisance at the shrine and interacted with the devotees who gathered around to speak to him.

Rare scenes of Hindu-Muslim brotherhood were witnessed as locals in Tullamulla village served milk in earthen pots to the Pandits, keeping up the centuries old local tradition.

“It is precisely due to the devotion to Mata and love for our Muslim brothers that I have been coming here regularly all these years,” said Ashok Koul, 42, who came from Jammu with his family.

Muhammad Shafi Baht, 52, a local Muslim, said: “The scene at the Mela has remained unchanged despite the political upheavals. Muslims in Tullamulla have always eagerly waited for the festival each year to be of some help to the Pandit brothers.

“This is what keeps the basic fabric of our eclectic society alive.”

Till midday Tuesday, more than 20,000 devotees had prayed at the temple shrine.

“My prayers now go out for our future generations. They must not lose sight of the great culture and heritage Kashmir has been famous for. Our generation is irrelevant anyway,” said B.L. Zutshi, 75, who came from Dehra Dun in Uttarakhand.

The Jammu and Kashmir Dharmarth Trust, which manages the shrine affairs, had set up free kitchen for the devotees. The departments of public health engineering, electricity, and food and supplies set up camps to facilitate the passage of the devotees.

Political Parties Unite over Bharat Bandh on May 31st

Posted: 29 May 2012 04:47 AM PDT

Political Parties seem to get united over the Recent Petrol Price Hike and are vehemently supporting Bharat Bandh led by Bharatiya Janta Party on May 31st
Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) has declared its support for the ‘Bharat Bandh’ called by NDA on May 31 in protest against steep hike in petrol prices.

“The bandh will be observed in a peaceful manner and all commercial establishments, markets and road transport will remain closed and only emergency services will be exempted from the bandh,” party spokesman Daljit Singh Cheema said in a statement here.

The SAD appealed to all trade organisations, industrial organisations, transport bodies and people of the state to fully support the bandh call by voluntarily closing their commercial establishments including shops, business houses, markets and transport services.

Janta Dal United has appealed to chief minister Nitish Kumar to postpone his Seva Yatra on May 31 and instead lead the Bharat bandh called by the NDA against the recent steep hike in the price of petrol and the runaway inflation.

State JD (U) president Vashisht Narayan Singh told mediapersons here on Monday that as per the schedule, the CM would undertake his three-day ‘Seva Yatra’ of Bhagalpur from May 30. “Our party has fully supported the bandh call and our workers will participate in it to make it a success from state to district level,” he said while appealing to people to take part in the nationwide protest on Thursday.

Left Parties havenot given any clear indication on whether or not they support the BJP led Bandh, they have decided to observe an ‘All India Protest Day’ on the very day the BJP has planned its Bharat Bandh.

It is a very casual approach toward the solution of the problem, but it may work if the general public will cooperate. The actual problem is that the opposition is not strong enough to protest on any matter related with fuel hike and other strong issue on which public opinion can easily be obtained.

However, I still managed to put in eight to ten hours of study every day and thanks to the support of my school I managed to emerge successful in the exams,” said Ismat.

He is a resident of Lilong Haoreibi village in Thoubal distric, around 20km from Imphal, Manipur. After his University degree he aims to join Civil Services and make a difference for his home state.
