AISA opposes renaming of police detained Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar College Drama Troupe – Edexlive Sat, 30 Jul 2022 10:25:00 +0000

When the college authorities of Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar College, affiliated with Delhi University, asked the students of his theater troupe to change the name of the troupe from Ilhaam to Aarambh, it caused a controversy. Although the students of the drama group reluctantly complied and changed the name, student organizations like AISA (All India Students’ Association) decided to oppose it.

“The Urdu name Ilhaam did not sit well with the headmaster of the college, Dr. RN Dubey. And he asked the students to change it. He has already done it. So we just wanted to address the issue as a call for solidarity with the students of the theater group. Seven members of AISA, including four girls and three boys, went to meet the director and submitted a memorandum against this name change decision,” says Shreya, AISA member and DU student, who was part of of the seven members. crew.

“We were not allowed to meet the manager and the police were called to the scene. The police arrived and took us to Bhajanpura police station around 1pm. They detained us there until 8:30 p.m. And they also interrogated us. First, we just wanted to file a memorandum, and there was no protest on the agenda. That’s why only seven of us went to the principal’s,” she added.

“At the police station they wrote down details but even after that they wouldn’t let us go. It’s the law that female students can’t be detained after sunset, but they kept us there. A freshman student asked for a sanitary napkin, but was refused. They even clicked on our photos without our consent. Then we were taken to Jyoti Nagar police station, where we were detained again until 9:30 p.m. Lawyers came to speak for us and only then did the police let us go. We asked them to delete the photos they had taken without our consent and gave them a group photo instead,” she added.

He was informed by Shreya that Ali Fraz Rezvi, who is the co-founder of the theater group, was also arrested by the police. However, the group members were attending class when the seven students went to deliver the memorandum to the principal.

EdexLive had previously contacted the manager and he denied any knowledge of the theater group or its involvement in the name change incident.

Shreya said that after the police detention, no demonstrations were planned. Students are busy with upcoming exams.

Kate Middleton’s secret codename looks like a comic book character Tue, 26 Jul 2022 17:30:21 +0000

When Prince William and Kate Middleton walk through the gates of Kensington Palace to live out their lives, it’s no small feat. Constantly surrounded by security details, royal fans are always on the lookout for the possibility of spotting their familiar faces. So what do they do when they want to fly under the radar? They use secret codenames. And Kate Middleton’s secret codename is particularly cool, kind of like a mid-century comic book character, in fact. Prince William’s is very good too, of course. just not as good.

When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge travel privately, The Express reports, they do so under different names. Prince William reportedly used the name Danny Collins, possibly keeping those DC initials in case he got a little confused about his alias. And Kate Middleton’s pseudonym also bears the initials DC. She would have traveled as Daphne Clark. Which sounds like the alias of a WWII superhero fighting injustice in the world, if you ask me.

Perhaps using her secret codename also gives her the chance to embody a whole secret identity as Daphne Clark. Although in truth, it seems more likely that the rest of us would like the chance to live life as our secret identity.

While Daphne Clark is obviously a very cool secret codename, Middleton also uses another, more obvious alias when out in the world as a somewhat private citizen. Or at least she did at the start of her marriage to Prince William when the couple lived at Anglesey Cottage in Wales. According to the story, Middleton wanted to put a wetsuit on hold in 2012 until she could come back and buy it. The sun reports that she was not recognized by the seller, who asked her name. “Mrs. Cambridge,” she replied without flinching. What a thrill it must have given her to go unnoticed for a moment.

Her eldest son, Prince George, 9, has also given himself a secret code name in the past. When he met a dog walker in the park in 2019 with his grandmother Carole Middleton, he told her his name was “Archie”. Just four months later, her aunt Meghan Markle gave birth to her cousin Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor. Maybe he was just trying out the name for good measure.

Or inventing a secret life to accompany his mother, AKA Daphne Clark.

]]> Maharashtra cabinet approves proposal to name Navi Mumbai International Airport after DB Patil Sat, 16 Jul 2022 07:17:36 +0000 Maharashtra’s cabinet on Saturday approved a proposal to name the next Navi Mumbai International Airport after the late DB Patil, who led several protests by farmers and landowners in the Panvel district when the City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) had acquired land in the area in the 70s and 80s.

The state government’s decision comes weeks after thousands of protesters marched to CIDCO’s headquarters in Belapur to press their request for the next airport to be named after the local hero.

An earlier proposal to name the airport after Shiv Sena founder Balasaheb Thackeray sparked widespread protests for nearly a year in Navi Mumbai, Raigad, Thane and Palghar districts.

In a letter to CIDCO in December 2020, Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, then the state’s Urban Development Minister, proposed that the airport be named Bal Thackeray. CIDCO followed up on Shinde’s letter.

Dinkar Balu Patil also known as DB Patil was born in Jasai, a village in Uran taluka of Raigad district. He was associated with the Peasants’ and Workers’ Party (PWP). Born into a farming family, Patil received his Bachelor of Laws in 1951 and a year later won an election to the Kolaba District Local Council. He then represented Panvel in the Maharashtra Assembly for five terms between 1957 and 1980.

Welsh Rugby Union | Wales and regions Thu, 14 Jul 2022 10:35:25 +0000

Wales take on the Springboks at the DHL Stadium in Cape Town on Saturday with the series level at 1-1. The match is live on Sky Sports Action with highlights on S4C.

There is a change in the starting line-up that made history in Bloemfontein last weekend with the first-ever victory for a Wales men’s side against the Springboks on their home soil.

Josh Adams, who won his 20th Wales try in the second Test to put him level with Gerald Davies, Gareth Edwards and Tom Shanklin on the all-time goalscoring list, returns to Wales XV. Adams and Louis Rees-Zammit are on the wings with Liam Williams at the back.

George North, starting alongside Nick Tompkins at center for the third consecutive time, will surpass Stephen Jones’ record as the most capped Welsh men’s international defender of all time this weekend, with 105 appearances for Wales.

North made his debut for Wales in 2010 in a match against South Africa in Cardiff, scoring two tries on that occasion. Only Alun Wyn Jones (152) – named among Wales’ substitutes – and defense coach Gethin Jenkins (129) have more Welsh caps.

Owen Watkin comes on as a substitute, the only change on the Wales bench since last Saturday.

Pivac said: “Most people had written us off before we left Wales and to be in this position with an opportunity to win this series is a great position for us. It’s fantastic that there is something to play in this Test match.

“However, the training week was difficult because we were a bit banged up as you would expect after two very physical test matches. So having the majority of the team we arrived with on these ribs is a good state of mind and we are really looking forward to the weekend.

“The atmosphere on game day was great. The South African fans are very vocal, they support their team and they let you know how they feel about the occasion. It’s an environment that tests you and the players have so far stood up in both matches.

“We are looking forward to another full house and another crowd that really supports the occasion and makes it a special occasion.”

Speaking of North and the record he is set to achieve on Saturday, Pivac added: “It’s fantastic for George. He worked very hard to recover from a serious injury and breaking this record is no small feat. Can’t wait to see George there on Saturday and hope he can get a stormer for us.
