Heritage items make a mark in youth festival
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, November 16
The heritage items competition brought alive the dying culture of Punjab on stage at the DAV College here on the second day of the Panjab University Zonal Youth Festival today.

For most of the audience folk orchestra complete with tumbi, sarangi, chimta, dhol, bansuri, ghara, dafli and kato was as much an educative experience as it was entertaining. The competition was tough since all students who have made it to this stage have already proved their mettle having won at the zonal level.

Mr Surinder Khan, director of the folk orchestra team of DAV College, said, “Folk orchestra has a group of nine students and three professional players. The traditional Punjabi musical instruments are played together in a jugalbandi. Since these instruments are not seen anymore in the days of remixes and pop music, many of the students had actually seen these for the first time. But once they got into it they were one with the instrument they played.”

Students are also singing ‘sithnis’, ‘ghoris’ and creating phulkari embroideries as part of the heritage item competitions. “Heritage items were introduced keeping in view the fact that Punjabi youth were becoming less and less aware of their own culture.

They know about the guitar but not kato. This way we expect Punjab’s culture to remain alive through these students who participate with so much verve and enthusiasm in these competitions,” said Mr S.M. Kant, Director, Youth Welfare, PU.Mr Vivek Atray, DPR, UT Administration and Mr Atul Gandhi, Secretary DAV College Alumni Association, were the chief guest for the second day of the fest.

The results of today’s competitions are as follows: Orchestra (Indian): Guru Nanak Khalsa College, Ludhiana, I, Dev Samaj College for Women, Sector-45, Chandigarh II, GGDSD College, Sector 32, Chandigarh (Chandigarh Zone boys) III; Group folk orchestra: GGN Khalsa College for Women, Ludhiana I, DAV College, Sector-10, Chandigarh II, MBBGRGC Girls College, Mansowal, Hoshiarpur III:

UT undertaking on ZP poll
High Court Correspondent

Chandigarh, November 16
The UT Administration today gave an undertaking to the Punjab and Haryana High Court that election of the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Zila Parishad, Chandigarh, would be held soon. The statutory notice to be issued by the Deputy Commissioner, Chandigarh, convening a meeting of the 10 elected members of the Zila Parishad would be issued latest by Monday.

This information was given to the court by the senior standing counsel for UT, Mr Anupam Gupta, during the hearing of a petition filed by Mr Bhajan Singh and seven other elected members.

In their petition, Mr Bhajan Singh and others had stated that the election result for members of the Zila Parishad was notified on July 19, 2005. Their counsel, Mr Navdeep Singh Gill, told the court that even though the statutory requirement was for the DC to convene a meeting within one month of the election to allow the elected members to elect a Chairman and Vice Chairman from amongst themselves, nothing of this kind was done despite passage of over one-and-a-half years.

He also stated that the Administration has designated a bureaucrat as Administrator of the Zila Parishad.

Today, Mr Gupta informed the Bench comprising Mr Justice Jasbir Singh and Mr Justice Pritam Pal that a notification was issued on November 14, through which the post of Chairman had been left for general category while the Vice Chairman’s post had been reserved for a Scheduled Caste member.

He also assured that the DC, Chandigarh, would issue the notice for convening the meeting of members by Monday and elections would be held.

After this, the Bench disposed of the petition.

Use of langurs to tackle monkeys challenged in court
Our High Court Correspondent

Chandigarh, November 16
The chairman of the Haryana chapter of the People for Animals, Mr Naresh Kadyan, today moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court, challenging the practice by the PGI authorities to use the services of two male langurs for tackling the monkey menace on the sprawling campus.

The PGI has engaged the services of a Delhi-based person, who has two langurs, for a monthly payment of Rs 10,000 per langur, to drive away the monkeys from the PGI and Panjab University, Chandigarh. The langurs had been pressed into service following wide-spread complaints by patients, doctors and other staff of the PGI, referring to the error tactics adopted by monkeys.

In his PIL, Mr Kadyan has stated that some months ago, he and some other activists raided the PGI and caught the owner of the two langurs and handed him over to the police post, PGI. Since no action was taken and the langurs are still being used for the purpose, the petitioner added that he had now moved the High Court.

Saying that the use of langurs for the purpose was illegal, as it was violative of the provisions of the Wildlife Protection Act, as well as the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act, 1960, the petitioner has said that the owner of the langurs had not taken any permission from the Animal Welfare Board of India, Chennai, to use the langurs for this purpose. He also claimed that the owner of the langurs had not declared about them as was warranted under Section 63 of the Wildlife Protection Act.

The petition also says that mere driving of the monkeys from the PGI served no purpose, as the monkeys then strayed into the surrounding residential areas, causing problems to the inhabitants. It prays that directions be issued to the respondents to stop the practice immediately.

The court today issued notice of motion for February 5 to the respondents.

Fashion apes life
Saurabh Malik
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, November 16
Winds of socio-economic and geo-political changes across the globe are shaping fashion trends. Well that is what Mumbai-based trend forecaster Harilein Sabarwal believes.

Political storms and wars of the titans have actually led to the introduction of cargo pants in the fashion scene. And Katrina (hurricane) resulted in a shift from skimpy attires to more sober and individualised clothing.

In Chandigarh to attend the “Second Fashion Knowledge Forum-2006”, Sabarwal traces the alterations brought about by the changing conditions since the beginning of the new millennium.

“In 2000, the new millennium brought along with it the shades of grays to mark the beginning of a new era. And with the boom in the Information Technology sector and the computer industry, fashion gurus across the globe logged on to the concept of ‘Causal Friday’ dressing and functional clothing,” she asserts.

“No wonder, brands like Allen Solly cashed in on it and launched their functional dressing collection in India.”

All this continued till the end of the year. “With economic recession setting in, the mood changed from celebrating technology to that of spirituality. And to go along with the mood, the designers came out with spiritually-soothing colours like purple, red and pink,” she says.

Next year, things only worsened with 9/11 as economic recession gave way to economic depression. “In an attempt to bring about some peace of mind, people continued with the colours of spiritually,” she says.

“In 2002, conditions further deteriorated. Battles for supremacy were on everywhere. Even in India, all was not peaceful. This led to the introduction of cargo pants and garments with ‘camouflage’ print.”

The end of the year saw things improve a little. Economic swing led to a change in the attitude and people came out of their houses to celebrate life. “Things began to open up and the change became apparent even in music videos. All around, people started wearing skimpy clothes till Katrina struck in 2004”.

“The storm brought along with it the uncertainties of life. And the lull that followed resulted in the dawning of a new realisation,” she asserts. “Realising they had just one life to live, people started going back to the rules and a more individualised style of living. As such, browns, chocolate and cappuccino made a comeback in 2005. Even now, they are thinking in terms of culture and are practically back where they were.

Wanted: more fashion designers
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, November 16
Union Secretary, Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, Dr Ajay Dua, today said a formal status for the fashion design industry would mean losing certain benefits.

Addressing a gathering at the “Second Fashion Knowledge Forum 2006”, he said: “Although the overall industry in India has 0.8 per cent share in the global trade industry, the Indian fashion design industry has only 0.1 per cent share.”

He further stressed on the need for having a good deal of fashion designers in India.

“The reason why this industry is not getting its due is because of lack of designers.

Although some fashion institutes are churning out designers, the number is quite small, less than about 3000.

This is the reason why there is a need to have institutes like Business School of Fashion at several places in the country,” he said.

CEO of Fashion Technology Park Jagjit Singh Kochar, however, strongly supported the idea of Indian fashion design industry being given the status of a formal industry so that it could reap benefits a formal industry enjoys.

The two technical sessions of the concluding day were devoted to vital topics like ‘Excellence Through Emerging Technologies’ by Managing Director of US-based Tukatech Inc Ravi Kapoor.

Punjab comfortable shooting location: Yash Chopra
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, November 16
Punjab is still the top priority for filmmaker Yash Chopra, who finds its sprawling farms and lavish greens irresistible. Although the director did not announce fresh shooting schedules for Punjab, he said he felt very comfortable shooting here. “I am working on a script and if the script demands, we will return to Punjab to shoot,” said Chopra, while speaking to mediapersons this morning.

Referring to his meeting with members of the Chandigarh Tourism Advisory Forum which he chairs, Chopra said the UT Administration had promised to make advances on the Film City project by January 1, 2007. “I have made it clear to the UT Administration that the Film City project should be a non-commercial venture, supported with the help of local talent,” he said, clarifying that he had no interest in either investing in the project or drawing commercial mileage out of it. “I am happy with my own little world of films and I would be satisfied to guide the project provided the government does what it says,” he said.

On the verge of releasing six films next year, Yash Chopra praised the upcoming directing talent which he is promoting through Yash Raj films. Supportive of remakes to the extent that they challenge the creative faculties of filmmakers, he said he was personally not inclined to indulge in such propositions. He steered the discussion towards Punjabi cinema, crediting Manmohan Singh with revitalising a dead industry. The filmmaker, however, added he was not game for making exclusively Punjabi films.

“My films are anyway Punjabi at heart. As a filmmaker, I like to look for projects that have wider appeal. Punjabi cinema has select audience,” he said. Yesterday, Yash Chopra also met the Punjab Chief Minister, who promised him all help to his production team in Punjab. At the meeting, Chopra raised with the Punjab CM the issue of piracy of films. He asked the state to learn from the Tamil Nadu experience, where notifications have been passed to check piracy.

Apprehending social stigma, a majority of women suffering from breast cancer have been opting for breast conservation instead of removal in the country. Dr S.M. Bose, former head of the surgery department, PGI, who has treated over 200 patients for breast conservation till date, said that conservation of breast is possible in early stages (till Stage-III) of cancer. “We use chemotherapy and if the patient responds, techniques for conservation of breast are carried,” he climed.

Dr Bose and his team have conducted a survey regarding the number of women opting for breast conservation in India and abroad.

“Apart from alcohol and smoking-addicted women, spinsters, women using contraceptive pills, late-mothers and women preferring no babies are more prone to breast cancer”, revealed Dr Bose, who is also president of the Association of Surgeons of India.

Dr Bose was recently in Pattaya , Thailand , to attend the World Congress of International College of Surgeons. More than 1000 delegates from all over the world attended the biennial congress.

Having a vast experience and expertise in the total management of breast cancer, Dr Bose delivered lectures on “Breast conservation surgery in locally advanced breast cancer” and “Non-operative management of abdominal trauma”.
