Mumbai) in the year 1980 was "fake" "Dhavalikar did not complete his graduation in 1979-80 though he claimed so in his sworn affidavit filed before the state Election Commission" Aam Aadmi Party’s

credible response to the serious issue" "In fact Dhavalikar has created further serious doubts about the statements in his affidavit by releasing a document to media on Friday purported to be his “BSc

marksheets from the University of Bombay showing Mr Dhavalikar’s failed attempts to answer the BSc examination in April 1979 and October 1979 Additionally the party had also listed several questions they expect Dhavalikar to answer based on those documents These include"If Mr Dhavalikar claims to have a “BSc (subsidiary) degree” from University of Bombay in 1978 why was he still appearing for BSc examinations in the year 1979" and "Mr Dhavalikar had stated that he passed his SSCE in the year 1975 How did Mr Dhavalikar managed to complete BSc in just 3 years after his SSCE" Dhavalikar had said

While there is no ambiguity about a child being ‘never enrolled’ several categories of never-enrolled children are left out (Source: CR Sasikumar) Related News More than four years after the RTE was passed the state has no handle on the numbers of out-of-school children The recently released report of the Global Initiative on Out-of-School Children based on a situational analysis of India opens a Pandora’s box on data and methodological issues that plague the estimation of out-of-school children in India As the report reveals there is a multiplicity of definitions sources of data and methods of estimation in use but none that can be relied on to capture the full extent of the problem As a result it is not clear how many children are actually out of school who they are where they reside and why they are not in school Unfortunately no worthwhile effort is being made to move towards achieving that clarity or finding a solution for the millions who continue to remain beyond the pale of formal schooling Since the passage of the Right to Education Act which mandates that every child in the age group of 6-14 years must be in school as a matter of her fundamental right the estimation of out-of-school children has assumed greater significance But despite the legal ramifications there is still no appropriate definition of an out-of school child or a standardised method of estimating the number Information on out-of-school children is collected either from schools or through household surveys The first set relies entirely on data from school registers or information supplied by teachers The margins of error in this method are self-evident But the larger problem lies in the method of estimation or the lack thereof For instance the DISE (district information system for education — now the official data collector on education) provides a net enrolment ratio by collecting data on the number of students enrolled in different age groups The difference between this and the number estimated to be in the relevant age group can then “be considered” as not enrolled The number of dropped-out children is calculated separately from the difference in enrolment of a cohort over two consecutive years Besides the inaccuracies involved there is in effect no actual estimate of out-of-school children Household surveys on the other hand rely on different definitions of dropout While the National Family Health Survey uses figures for the officially dropped out others account for those who have not attended school on “any day in the past two months” and states across the country vary in their interpretations ranging from seven days of continuous absence (Karnataka) to three months of continuous absence (Gujarat) The Child Tracking Surveys (CTS) — the latest in the list — employ teachers to collect this information using an undefined methodology In the final analysis therefore it is anybody’s guess how many children are in fact “out-of-school” In addition to the lack of clarity or accuracy of data the problem is made worse by the fact that all this information (barring the CTS) is available only at aggregate levels At the village panchayat or block level these records are neither maintained nor systematically tracked How then can the government which is under legal obligation to ensure that every child is “in school” do so when it does not even know the scale or scope of the problem In order to address the problem of out-of-school children with any seriousness there are some basic issues that need to be addressed The first deals with the coverage of out-of-school children While there is no ambiguity about a child being “never enrolled” there are several categories of never-enrolled children that are systematically left out For instance children of migrant and nomadic families; street and homeless children; children engaged in labour; children in conflict with the law or in need of care and protection; and increasingly children living in conflict zones These “invisibilised” children may never get to school unless focused efforts are made to recognise them and count them in The second issue relates to the understanding of who a dropped-out child is Recently the government of India declared that a dropped-out child is one who is absent for 45 days but without clarifying whether it covers continuous absence or not However the question is does this measure really capture the scope of the problem The reality is that many children are “regularly irregular” attending school for a few days at a time and then remaining absent the next few Scores of other children attend for only some part of the school day leaving after the midday meal is served But none of the current measures captures these facts Can these children be considered as being “in school” Further the DISE does not capture attendance data basing its estimates on enrolments alone And the states that are collecting data on dropouts based on attendance do not use them to update their enrolment records — only for organising “special training” — circumventing the issue of estimating the out-of-school yet again Under the RTE Act the state’s obligation is clear: regular attendance and retention not just enrolment How can the government continue to hide behind inappropriate definitions and shy away from accurate estimations The third issue is the absence of a reliable database at the local level Under the RTE the responsibility of tracking children has been given to the panchayats but with no resources or corresponding capacities created to do so Instead it is the teachers who have been asked to conduct the CTS The fact that they might have an incentive to under-report or that this task adds to their burden of non-teaching duties and might not lead to accurate estimates has been completely ignored Besides this information is not in the public domain so no one knows which children have been included and which have not In order to track children the community must be involved in the creation and use of information At present the data regime is too remote to be able to initiate change on the ground More than four years after the RTE was passed the state has no handle on the numbers of children who are being denied their fundamental right to education let alone strategies on how to get them into school and keep them there In light of the publicity given to the prime minister’s address to children in school can we spare a thought for those who did not get to hear the PM on Teachers’ Day Can one hope that the PM will acknowledge those less fortunate and initiate appropriate steps towards recognising the problem in its entirety and making a commitment towards overcoming it The writer is senior fellow Centre

Chaitanya,Rakul Preet Singh Rarandoi Veduka Chudham director:Kalyan Krishna Rarandoi Veduka Chudham movie rating: 2 stars Naga Chaitanya is going through a rough patch in his career Even acting in the remake of the blockbuster film like Premam did not fetch the desired results for the actor While his Sahasam Swasaga Saagipo failed to live up to the expectations the Tamil version Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada with Simbu in the lead role went on to become the box-office hit in Tamil Nadu A hit film is the need of the hour for Chaitanya’s acting career And Rarandoi Veduka Chudham (Come Let’s Watch the Spectacle) may not be the film that is likely to give the much-needed break to the actor The makers of the latest family entertainer have played it very carefully to deliver a crowd-pleasing film But as the saying goes “the policy of being too cautious is the greatest risk of all” The film suffers from the same reason Director Kalyan Krishna has developed a forgettable family drama on a premise that is as old as the Telugu film industry itself Bhramarambha (Rakul Preet Singh) is the favourite daughter in a picture-perfect joint family that showers its unconditional love on her The girl meets the boy Shiva (Naga Chaitanya) at a friend’s wedding She doesn’t fall in love with him But it is love at the first sight for the hero The audience is later treated to a bunch of forcefully injected antics by supporting actors that would never happen at a real wedding And there’s a customary celebration song Rarandoi Veduka Chudham that actually helps to lift up the mood in the theatre Shiva begins to engage in various antics in order to grab the attention of Bhramarambha with disastrous results She is spoiled by all the love and affection of her family When the time comes for her to leave her hometown and go to Vizag for her higher studies she is terrified And she seeks out Shiva to help her through her times away from her family Shiva sees his window of opportunity and tries his best to impress her and make her fall in love with him But the problem is he has been friendzoned by her The rest of the film is all about how does he escape from there and win her over Shiva is a happy-go-lucky guy but lacks a personality He is the only son of a millionaire businessman Krishna (Jagapathi Babu) with the nerve of steel and heart of gold He won’t keep quiet at a place where there is injustice or a damsel in the distress The director has clearly tried every hard to make this character likeable but I’m afraid he has not succeeded in doing so Shiva’s character is sort of unrealistically Although he dresses trendy his character feels like he is from the 1980s Shiva has no discernible talents and qualities that strike a chord with the audience He is just one among the stock characters that sets unrealistic and outdated hero goals for the youngsters Meanwhile Chaitanya seems to have a problem in pulling off a role of a popular boy of the crowd On the other hand Bhramarambha is instantly likeable She is charming funny and self-obsessed She has a lot of flaws but is unapologetic about them and lives life to the fullest without worrying about what other people think of her Rakul is at ease in this role and delivers a charming performance Jagapathi Babu’s character has a very little contribution to make to the film’s narration And the senior actor seems to have resigned to his fate of a being just a filler in movies The film has a huge star cast including actors like Sampath Raj Kausalya Vennela Kishore and Posani Krishna Murali among others But the director has not made a good use of their talents due to a weak script Music from Devi Sri Prasad is one of the very few good things about this film With growing opportunities for the audience to consume more and more interesting films from across the world via new media they are very unlikely to appreciate the filmmakers’ attempt to serve old wine in the new bottle The filmmakers must try and

of Jaidev the estranged son of Bal Thackeray on Tuesday said the city continues to grapple with many “unresolved” issues like bad roads and alleged that the system in the civic body has been corrupt for many years Although Smita said that no single party can be held responsible for this according to her more efforts and transparency were needed in the functioning of the Mumbai civic body Smita while speaking to a news channel after casting her vote in Bandra said “Today voted for several issues such as water problem which is being faced for years in Mumbai…I am not talking about Maharashtra The roads are really very bad traffic problem is also very bad due to which people have to spend lots of time on roads Moreover pollution has also become a major problem and people are dying All these issues that come under the BMC have not been duly resolved” Replying to a query she said “I am not pointing out to any one party which has to work together with several other parties You cannot just blame one party I am also not saying that all of the issues have remained unresolved but they have to be resolved Many problems still remain and the process (of resolving the issues) is quite slow” Smita a film producer and social activist who lived in “Matoshree” (Thackeray clan’s residence) until her divorce with Jaidev in 2004 also claimed that despite her surname and family connections – she has to face problems while getting her work done in India’s richest civic body “I have to face it though I tried my level best… Despite bearing it (surname Thackeray) I am sorry to say that system has been corrupted for so many years and you cannot blame a party for it Even an individual (BMC employee) feels that it is his right to take money for clearing a file” she said In response to a query

Kerala for a new tax sugarcoated as an initiative to keep people healthy A no less smart initiative and one with political ramifications in Isaac’s budget is the proposal to build cultural complexes

hall bookstore workspace for craftspersons and facilities for short-term stay Funds have been earmarked for a slew of museums in the name of musicians and artists and cultural initiatives Isaac’s step

virtually no social media presence in constituencies that have the highest concentration of social media users in the country it is perhaps wise to recalibrate the importance accorded to social media in Indian elections ( Source: Express photo by Pradeep yadav ) Related News “India’s first social media election” prophesised CNN in an April news headline ahead of the recent general elections “Social media is playing an important new role in Indian democracy” proclaimed The New York Times in its January editorial “Social media is changing the face of Indian general elections” lectured an NDTV anchor on prime time That an army of first-time voters equipped with the digital weapons of Facebook Twitter YouTube WhatsApp and Google Hangouts will provide the blitzkrieg in the election battle was a popular English media narrative through this year’s general election campaign The Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) along with IRIS Knowledge Foundation supplemented this narrative with a report highlighting 160 out of the 543 Lok Sabha constituencies that were “high impact” and most vulnerable to social media influence These constituencies were ostensibly identified based on data gathered of numbers of Facebook Twitter and other social media users in India categorised by their geographical location Predictably all the urban cities towns and districts appeared in this list of high-impact constituencies Social media marketing agencies mushroomed to peddle advice to novice candidates on bolstering their presence on social media platforms Likes and retweets were purported to be the new proxies for rallies and crowds Speeches were predicted to be replaced by 140-character compositions in these “social media” constituencies Did social media live up to its exalted expectations of an extravagant impact on India’s general elections We analysed the social media presence of the winner and runner-up in each of these 160 high-impact constituencies (as defined by the IAMAI/ IRIS report) across 25 states and Union territories by computing a social media index A social media index is defined simplistically as the sum of the candidate’s Twitter and Facebook followers Of the 320 candidates (winner and runner-up in 160 high-impact constituencies) 221 (71 per cent) had no or minimal social media presence It is of telling significance that 71 per cent of the top two candidates in the 160 constituencies that have the highest social media penetration in the country did not deem it essential to even have a presence on social media for their election campaign And 111 (70 per cent) of the winners from these high social-media impact constituencies had no meaningful social media presence Hence it can be inferred that social media did not play a role in their victory In constituencies where both the eventual winner and runner-up had an active social media campaign in nearly 60 per cent of them the losing candidate had a much more significant presence on social media than the eventual winner Thus in constituencies that witnessed vibrant social media campaigns a higher social media index did not correlate with the candidate’s ability to win Further in the very urban constituencies of South Mumbai Amritsar North West Mumbai and Pune candidates with large social media followings lost to candidates with almost no social media presence Maharashtra and Gujarat were the top two states with 38 high-impact constituencies In 31 of these 38 constituencies the winner had either zero or lower social media index than the runner-up With 20/20 acuity it may now be plausible to explain some of the hype around social media and its potential impact on elections While 80 per cent of the candidates in each of these 160 constituencies had a social media index of less than 10000 the prime ministerial candidate of the BJP Narendra Modi alone had an index of 25 million more than all the other candidates combined Such sheer dominance of the general elections by one man with an enormous social media following perhaps fallaciously led everyone to believe in the potential impact of social media on the electoral prospects of all candidates For the mathematical purist the above analysis may not prove the futility of social media’s impact on elections in India Election outcomes anywhere in the world and more so in India are a complex sociological manifestation of the times the menu of candidates and the sentiments of voters It is both nave and intellectually arrogant to attempt to compress elections into a predictive mathematical model of causative variables that determine election results However understanding the marginal impact of a campaign activity is critical for most candidates and helps decide where to concentrate campaign efforts It is in this context that understanding the impact of social media on electoral outcomes becomes vital The above analysis attempts to demonstrate that If in 71 per cent of the cases social media played no role in 60 per cent of the cases social media presence had a negative correlation to winning and 70 per cent of the eventual winners had virtually no social media presence in constituencies that have the highest concentration of social media users in the country it is perhaps wise to ponder and recalibrate the importance accorded to social media in Indian elections As

team was 74 for one after lunch (Source: BCCI) Top News A routine fact-check of the Warner Park wouldn’t leave the bowlers particularly inspired In three Test matches here the average first innings tally has been 465 a mean drastically reduced by the last Test here where Pakistan could garner just 272 In the inaugural Test India racked up 581 runs In the second South Africa plundered 543 The corresponding second innings scores read 362 and 546 The opening day of the practice game wasn’t any different as bowlers — both spinners and seamers — laboured hard on an unresponsive wicket with India technically losing just three wickets (three of them were retired out) But intermittent showers and the overcast sky must have furnished some respite for the Indian seamers And in the first half an hour there was some assistance on offer for the seamers who though squandered it away with errant lines The conditions it seemed were ideal for Bhuvneshwar Kumar to blossom He began on a promising note pitching ball fuller and teasing the batsmen to drive He mostly swung the ball into the right-hander and in between slipped in the outswinger Thus he set up WICB Board President XI skipper Leon Johnson The latter had comfortably defended him thus far but Kumar bowled a couple of inswingers before making one slightly shape away from him brushing his outside edge to the second slip At the other end Mohammed Shami returning to international after a lengthy lay-off was working up good pace and probing the batsmen outside the off-stump Both Shai Hope and Rajendra Chandrika were less certain of the way the ball was moving and another wicket seemed nigh Trying too hard But suddenly Indian bowlers began trying a little too hard and became impatient subsequently losing their direction literally and figuratively Shami symbolised this sudden lapse in focus He began bowling a little too wide outside the off-stump the batsmen duly leaving them in its course Then when he tried to compensate he strayed down the leg which the Caribbean batsmen capitalised A restless Virat Kohli fiddled around with his field sometimes even setting bizarrely unconventional fields—like at one point he had a short mid-on and forward short-leg the latter stationed deeper than usual Predictably Shami bowled short but the lack of pace on the surface gave the batsmen ample time to play those comfortably on the backfoot Bhuvneshwar and Shami were soon replaced with Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav Ishant while being sharp bowled wide like Shami Umesh typically was mercurial at times deadly but mostly wild For instance he bowled perhaps the ball of the morning when he made one jump and snake back at the batsman from short of length The follow-up was gift-wrapped half-volley outside off-stump By this time the strip was eased of the moisture and the batsmen had bedded in showing the sort of judgment and application that’d shame some of their senior batsmen The three-Test old Chandrika was the more strokeful of the pair and he crunched a brace of delicious boundaries through cover It was just a matter of time before Kohli introduced the spinners and leg-spinner Amit Mishra replaced Ishant for a three-over spell just before lunch The leggie bargained more purchase from the surface and the batsmen had trouble picking his fastish googly He nearly had Hope in front and after lunch procured an edge off Chandrika which fell short of the first slip Like most batsmen unused to quality spinners they played Mishra from the crease neither committing on the front foot or back foot Brief scores: India 258/6 decl (Rohit Sharma 54* Shikhar Dhawan 51 KL Rahul 50; Jomel Warrican 2-61) vs West Indies Cricket Board President’s XI 74/1 in 32 overs (Rajendra Chandrika 35* Shai
