It was more of a passing thought, AAP’s rally on 13 January in Muktsar during the Maghi Mela in the presence of AAP national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was a huge success and

Beijing. a ground report finds that there are several discrepancies in these claims.Zila Parishad (ZP) school at Sant Gadagebaba Vasti at Jambhai village in Aurangabad district will be closed down as per the new decision and the students will be shifted to another ZP school in Jambhai village But the distance between these two schools is more than three kilometres Kadu Pathan one of the parents whose daughter Muskan is a student of first standard at the school being shut said “Parents of all eleven students including ten girls cannot take the risk to send our daughters alone to school in the nearby village Girls are too small to walk down so far on the poorly maintained kutcha roads which are deserted most of the times Frequency of government buses is too poor and private vehicles don’t operate due to lack of passengers We are poor labours and cannot afford to hire private vehicle to send our kids to schools” Experts feel that low student count is not a metric of the quality of education The number of students attending a school depends more on the sociological and demographic factors Image Courtesy: Varsha Torgalkar He also pointed out “Girls are so small that if they walk through the farms alone they are hidden from the view If something happens to them on the way nobody will even come to know for a long time It is unviable both economically and safety wise to send such small children this far The best way available for us is to not send them to school” However Nand Kumar said “We have decided to close down these schools due to poor quality of education Many parents whose kids were in these schools have shifted their kids to other schools We have decided to close only those schools where the education is not satisfactory” But experts say that less number of students in a school is not a metric of the quality of education Inmany of these villages the parents are not educated enough to understand quality of education at these schools Sandip Sonawane a Pune-based social activist said “We recently visited ten schools in Mulashi and Maval Taluka of Pune districts that are going to be shut down because theyhave 10 or less students from standard first to seventh But we cannot blame the quality of education for less number of students in these schools These schools are located at small hamlets far away from villages or in hills where 20-25 families stays And since theyouth further migrate to the cities thepopulation of these hamlets will only decrease Thus number of students in these schools might go down further” He said “Students at ZP school in Choraghewadi in Mulashi Taluka of Pune will be shifted to ZP School in Uravade that is three kilometres away All families in this hamlet depend on rice farming and they cannot leave their farms during the peak season They have already said that they cannot drop and pick up their kids everyday And there is no way parents are going to send small girls to walk down to school alone everyday as incidents of sexual assault against minor girls are going up Somost probably these children will drop out of schools ” Kapil Patil MLC from Konkan teachers’ constituency said “Future of over 13000 students is put in jeopardy by the state even though education is a basic right of students According to the provisions of the RTE act the schools should be within one and three kilometres from the children’s houses But now schools at tribal hills and nomadic hamlets will be shutdown thus closing the doors of education for these children How do you expect small kids to crossrivers hills in the Konkan region or dangerous Naxal affected areas in Gadchiroli and Vidarbha region alone” "On one hand the state government wants to close down schools that have less than 20 students while on the other hand private players don’t come forward to start schools where parents are economically poor" Patil added Even many teachers are unhappy with the decision but nobody is ready to speak on record as their jobs are still safe Despite several requests Maharashtra Eductaion Minister Vinod Tawade so far did not respond to our queries on the decision Kolkata: Hinting that the RBI’s latest revelations on demonetisation pointed to a "big scam" West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday claimed the entire exercise of banning high value currencies was a "total flop show’ and demanded a thorough investigation on the issue while urging the Supreme Court to provide justice to people "Is not the RBI’s revelation this evening on demonetisation pointing to a big scamI feel it was totally a flop show 99 percent of the demonetised currency has come back to the RBI Only one percent has not returned" Banerjee also the Trinamool Congress chief said on social media File image of West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee PTI "The people of India demand an answer and a thorough investigation on this Since the demonetisation issue has been referred to the Constitution Bench our humble prayer would be that the Honourable Supreme Court provides justice to the people of this country" she said Taking a swipe at the Central government for the loss of lives and suffering of people after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes on November 8 last year Banerjee alleged that the exercise that was supposed to unearth black money has turned into "a big zero" "Hundreds of people lost their lives Crores of common people – farmers workers those engaged in informal sector small enterprises and other most vulnerable sections of society suffered massive pain" she said She also alleged that the nation lost rupees three lakh crore of the GDP in the fourth quarter after demonetisation Banerjee wondered whether the demonetisation was "deliberately set up" by the Central government to help the black money dealers to convert massive amounts into white money "Was the system deliberately set up by Government of India to facilitate dealers of black money to convert black money into white in lakhs of crores What was the hidden agenda" she questioned Revealing the low efficacy of last November’s demonetisation of high-value currency the RBI said on Wednesday that of the Rs 1544 lakh crore of notes taken out of circulation Rs 1528 lakh crore or almost 99 per cent had returned to the system by way of deposits by the public

Related News With Kalki Koechlin-starrer critically acclaimed Margarita With a Straw Sayani Gupta made a confident debut in Bollywood two years ago but it was only after she co-starred with Shah Rukh Khan in FAN and Katrina Kaif in Baar Baar Dekho that the masses took notice of her Earlier this year Sayani was seen in Akshay Kumar-led Jolly LLB and come tomorrow the audience will see her sharing screen space with Ranbir Kapoor in Jagga Jasoos But as her popularity and visibility are increasing courtesy these films personally the actor has been left disillusioned after working on these stars-led vehicles In an interview to indianexpresscom the actor opened about the disparity she has observed in the treatment meted out to stars and other actors working on a film “Quite early in my career I have realised that your energy efforts and talent will not be respected if you are not a star We are a star-struck star-oriented industry That’s sad This is the reason I want to be a star I want to be the biggest star in the country only so that my efforts get counted” she said Just before making this point Sayani spoke about her disappointment with her role in Jagga Jasoos being heavily reduced and how she couldn’t do anything about it as she wasn’t a star “I believe whatever happens should happen for the best of the film so I am sure whatever changes were made with my role were for the bigger picture Having said that it’s definitely disheartening that your role goes through such a big change over the course of the film and it is reduced to something far smaller than what it was initially But it’s okay I am not a star I don’t have that power And I don’t mean to say that if I become a star one day then I will control things in a way but the fact is we like putting one person in a higher position than everybody else” Did she simply say that there was a disparity on Jagga Jasoos set given the presence of stars like Ranbir and Katrina Sayani refused saying that director Anurag Basu works in an independent and democratic manner and doesn’t hold stardom above the script “Ranbir is a very humble person He and dada (Anurag) are very grounded people so there was no weight being thrown around Katrina was also chilled out But most of the times it’s not these stars but people around them who create the cloud That’s in Indian culture We are like that as a society” Explaining herself by citing Shah Rukh’s example Sayani said while he is the most chilled out actor she has ever worked with she saw others around him on the set of FAN creating the unnecessary baggage “I love Shah Rukh He doesn’t let you believe that you are working with a star He is the most chilled out co-star The way he talks to you have conversations with you and works on the set it’s amazing But then there are others who stick around him and behave star-struck” Nevertheless the actor has made peace with the prevalent star culture in Bollywood and she believes that things will only change when quality of actors is more accepted and mediocrity in acting is challenged “I am hoping that with my success I can push the envelope and change things in my own way I hope more and more good actors become successful so the lines are blurred It’s a fact that most of the stars can’t act We have such mediocre standards of good work that a performance which is just a little above average also gets appreciated like it’s something great” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsBy: PTI | New Delhi | Published:
