Ex-student seeks PU help

Chandigarh, April 22
A former student of Panjab University has come back to the doors of Panjab University expecting help during times of trouble. A student who left her studies after doing second year in B.Sc II (Home Science) in 1999 has come asking for a special chance to allow her to do her B.Sc III. The official document says that “she got married in 2000 and could not appear for her final year examination in B.Sc III”.

The concerned regulation in PU Calendar Volume II clearly says: “A candidate must appear in part II and III examinations within three years of her passing part I and II examination, as the case might be.” The university points out that ‘in view of the regulation she was eligible for admission to B.Sc III within three years of passing her B.Sc II which was only uptil 2001-2002’.

It is pertinent to mention that the candidate in her application has requested the university to allow her the special chance to appear in B.Sc III. She said she had a small child and her marriage was on the verge of a break-up. She has said that she wanted to study further for the future of her child. She has requested the university to consider her case ‘sympathetically’ to allow her the desired independence in life.

The case will be taken up by the university Syndicate for a detailed discussion.

The case requires a special look in the light that the university allows several concessions to the regular students on one pretext or the other. The university allowed special concessions to those who do not fill their minimum lecture conditions. First the chairman condoned the lectures, then the Vice-Chancellor condoned the lectures. If a candidate was still short of lectures the Syndicate had the powers to condone the remaining. The university is planning to revert back to this old practice in the Syndicate meeting later month.

The university is known to give special examination chances to students who do not clear the examination in the first chance. Now the university has given a special permission to students to allow them improvement in their undergraduate examination after they had finished the classes.

A university Fellow said that in wake of the university concessions for students, allowing this particular student a special chance was not asking for much going by the basic facts of the case.


Students resent move to hike fee

SAS Nagar, April 22
Too busy with their annual examinations to react publicly, students of Government College, SAS Nagar, are, however, visibly upset about the proposed hike in the fee of higher education in the government colleges of the state. On the other hand, the college authorities, although uncertain about the actual implementation of the scheme, have welcomed the hike.

“The hike is too much. From Rs 10 per month to Rs 350 for all degree classes, the increase is 35 times. Maybe Rs 12 is too little, but then increasing it to Rs 350 straightaway is also unfair,” said Surinder, a student of the college. For others, the news that they will now have to pay Rs 750 as admission fee was unacceptable. “We pay a nominal Rs 10 as the admission fee now. What about the students who cannot afford these fee rates?” said Gurpreet, another student of the college.

Students’ views notwithstanding, the college authorities have a reason to be glad. The college is spending a whopping Rs 15 lakh per month just on the salaries of its staff. On maintenance, the college spends another Rs 40,000 and other expenditures, which include the electricity and water bills per month, come to Rs 8,000. Out of this total expenditure of about Rs 15.5 lakh per month, the total amount earned through the students’ fee is less than Rs 7 lakh. The rest of the amount comes from the government. The Mohali Government College is just one of the 49 government colleges in the state.

“Imparting higher education is one of the most expensive expenditure for the Punjab Government, but at the same time the college fee has not been hiked for the past over 30 years and it is high time that it is done now,” said Mr Charanjit Chawla, Panjab University senator and former leader, Punjab and Chandigarh College Teachers Union.

Similar views have been voiced by the college staff. “The students are spending almost 10 times the money for the same quality of education in private colleges. So why not here?” questions a college lecturer.

Students, however, maintain that the government should subsidise education so that equal opportunities can be given to those who are not wealthy enough to go to private institutions. “Our college is catering to the rural population near Chandigarh and SAS nagar. Most of the students who are here can afford to spend only a limited amount on higher education. Increasing the fee will deter many students from undertaking higher studies,” said a student who did not want to be named.

But the college staff thinks differently. “The cheapest thing available in our college is education. Students, on an average, spend Rs 15 a day in the canteen and for education, they are spending Rs 12 a month. It is laughable,” said another college teacher.

Stating that he had not received any official intimation from the Director Public Instructions (DPI), Colleges, Punjab, regarding a hike in fee and from when it is to be implemented, the college Principal, Mr S.S. Sohi, however, is uncertain if the decision will see the light of the day. “Such decisions have been taken so many times in the past, but following some pressure or the other these decisions end up being shelved,” he pointed out.



Govt releases 110-cr grant
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, April 22
In a step which has come as a major relief for government-aided private colleges, the Punjab Government has withdrawn the 10 per cent annual cut on grants-in-aid and released a sum of Rs 110 crore which had accumulated over the years.

Claiming credit for this, the Punjab and Chandigarh College Teachers’ Union, in a statement issued here today, said the teachers and employees of aided colleges were hard-pressed as their salaries got delayed.

The statement added that under the present fiscal situation, the state-funded education system was facing a lot of difficulties and, under such circumstances, the government’s decision had been widely welcomed by the teaching fraternity.

The pension-gratuity issue is next on the union’s agenda.

How & Why

THE push or pull that brings an object into motion or effects its movement is called Force.

Force not only makes objects move, but can also speed up or slow down a moving object, make it change its direction, or even distort its shape.

Formula : Force

F = M x A

where :

F is Force,

M is Mass, and

A is acceleration

Force is measured in Newtons (N), Mass in kilograms (kgs) and acceleration in meters per second squared (m / s2).


What force is required to accelerate a 1000 kg rocket at 50 m / s2 ?

F = M x A

= 1000 x 50

= 50,000 N

Generally, stronger the force, greater will be the effect it will have on an object. Force cannot be seen, but can only be experienced or felt.

For example, if you push a ball and send it rolling, you are exerting force to make it move. A worker pushing a box to place it at a different location is also exerting force.

Even the wind exerts force. Stand in a strong wind and you can feel the air pushing against you see it blowing away some objects.

Force also changes the speed of a moving object or bring it to rest. For example, kicking a ball which is already rolling sends it away at a greater speed.

Similarly, while playing, when you stop a ball coming towards you, force is being exerted to bring it to rest.

As far as changing direction is concerned, a common example is again found on the playground -- Hitting a moving ball, either by hand, foot, racket or bat to make it going some another direction.

Combined forces
A number of forces can simultaneously act on a body, whether it is at rest or in motion. They can act in straight lines or at angles.

If the combined effect of forces has to be worked out, the amount of force and the directions have to be considered.

When the forces are acting in a straight line, their effect can be worked out by simple addition or substraction.

But when the forces are applied at angles, a different technique has to be used. A “parallelogram of forces”, linking the object with the direction of forces has to be drawn and the amount of force being applied on an object is worked out through a formula.

Straight line forces:

As shown in the upper part of the figure alongside, forces of 3 N acting in opposite directions cancel each other out, with the result that the body does not change its position.

The lower half of the figure shows different amount of forces being applied in opposite directions on an object. A force of 6N minus 3N results in a combined effective force of 3N, which moves the object in the direction in which the force is more.

Angular forces:

The combined force of two tugs to pull a boat can be calculated by drawing a parallelogram, with its vertices being the boat, the location of the two tugs and the fourth vertics being located on the line along which the boat moves.

Here, the effective combined force exerted by the two tugs, exerting 40N and 60N, respectively, in pulling the boat works out to be 90N. <

An object is said to be in equilibrium when all the forces acting upon it are balanced.

There are three types of equilibrium -- Stable, Unstable and Neutral.

When in stable equilibrium, an object maintains its position even if pushed or disturbed slightly.

If an object is in unstable equilibrium, the slightest change in force will cause it to assume a new position, with a different set of forces acting upon it.

An object in neutral equilibrium may change its position if pushed, but the same set of forces will be acting upon it when it come to rest again. <


Need to conserve ecology stressed
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, April 22
To mark the World Earth Day today, around 300 students from six schools organised a rally to spread the messages to “save the earth” and “conserve the ecology”. It was organised by the local chapter of the Environment Society of India (ESI).

Land allotment to schools: stay plea dismissed
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, April 22
An application for staying the process of allotting land to schools in Chandigarh was today dismissed by the Punjab and Haryana High Court. The draw of lots for allotting the sites is scheduled to take place tomorrow.

The application was submitted in a petition filed by four school authorities. They had challenged the deletion of a clause whereby reservation for allotment was provided to schools running on premises not meant for the purpose in Chandigarh.

The four — including Mr D.C. Jain, president of a society running Sai Niketan Model School in Sector 37 — had claimed that they were running privately managed schools on residential premises in Chandigarh. As per Clause V of the Allotment of Land to the Educational Institutions, reservation was provided for the applicants already running the schools on the premises not meant for the purpose. However, the authorities, issued the impugned amendment whereby Clause V of the scheme was deleted.

Giving details, counsel for the petitioners had submitted that as a result of the deletion of the clause, the right of preference had been taken away by the respondents in an arbitrary manner without the issuance of any notice or opportunity of hearing.

The counsel had added that despite representations, the authorities issued an advertisement inviting applications from reputed educational institutions, societies and trusts, for allotment of land to the schools in Chandigarh on leasehold basis.


Balwant Gargi — prodigal son of Punjabi prose
Aditi Tandon
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, April 22
As one flicks through the literary corpus that defines Balwant Gargi, one cannot help tracing the roots of his literary genius. The journey takes us back from the glamorous Western settings to the humble Punjab villages that find expression in Gargi’s most celebrated works, ‘Loha Kut’ and ‘Kuari Teesi’. No matter how close to controversy Gargi went due to the voyeuristic appeal of his works, his heart was rooted in the village. That is precisely why his son is bringing him back home to Punjab.

Day after tomorrow when Mannu Gargi heads for Bathinda to immerse the mortal remains of his father into the Sirhind Canal, many Gargi associates in the city will wish for one last rendezvous with the man who made Punjabi prose worthwhile. This occasion brings back memories of days when Balwant Gargi belonged to Chandigarh — a city which he immortalised through references in his controversial novel ‘The Naked Triangle’. With its unconventional charm, Chandigarh grew upon him and inspired him to create the Department of Indian Theatre at Panjab University. As he enriched the department which produced Anupam and Kiron Kher, among others, seeds of ‘The Naked Triangle’ were being sown in the PU campus.

Today when the prodigal son of Punjabi literature is no more, it is time to reconstruct his memory with the help of vignettes provided by some of his friends. Eminent writer Gulzar Singh Sandhu has memories of Gargi losing control of his memory. “I met him two years back when he was chosen for the Punjabi Sahit sabha, fellowship. As member of the Sabha I had arranged the function in which lyricist Gulzar honoured Gargi. He looked pale. His memory was failing him. It’s strange because he was the same man who would never forget that he had borrowed money. He would make a note of his debts and clear them off sooner than later. He was also very rural at heart.”

As a writer, Gargi is unequivocally praised for three works — novels ‘Loha Kut’ and ‘Kuari Teesi’ and ‘Sharbat de Ghutt’ — a work in which Gargi has profiled people who influenced him. So Shiv Kumar Batalvi is ‘kaudiyaan wala sapp’ and Ajit Kaur is ‘kadhni’. Prof Mohan Maharishi, former Director, National School of Drama (NSD) and Department of Indian Theatre, PU, remembers Gargi as a cordial man and an excellent theatre person. “I met him at the NSD. He used to photograph Ebraham Alkazi’s productions. After Gargi saw my performance in Andha Yug, he called me to Chandigarh where he had founded the theatre department which I later joined as Director. I particularly remember Gargi’s play ‘Sultana Razia’ which Alkazi had directed. His Punjabi prose remains unparalleled. There is no such example in the realm of Punjabi drama. Gargi’s work was greatly inspired by Elia Kazan, a world famous American film director.”

Playwright Dr Harcharan Singh recalls the warmth of Gargi. “He was intelligent and dynamic. With his demise an era in Punjabi literature has ended. His literary contributions are indubitably the best, especially ‘Loha Kutt’, ‘Kanak di Balli’, ‘Kesro’ and ‘Dhuni di Aggan’. His work ‘Sohni Mahiwal’ was even staged in Moscow. The book, ‘Theatre in India’, published in 1962, fetched him the Sahitya Akademi Award. His documentary ‘Jatra’ fetched him the International Film Festival Award. What more can you ask of an artiste?

Rani Balbir Kaur’s association with Gargi dates back to days at the PU campus. “He gave the theatre department a firm footing. I am proud that I was among the first ones to be taught by him,” she says.

Even in his death, Gargi has entered another lifespan. He will be remembered in many shades — as a prodigal son of Punjabi prose and as a man who spared no one, including himself, when it came to baring raw feelings, born of unbridled emotion. Quoting Gargi: “I do not record happenings in my books, because I’m not a historian but a writer. In my books, I build up the experience that I’ve lived or have seen around. Writing a book, for me, is like erecting a rhythm of speech and that is it.”

Hey, heat-haters! Put the fun back in your stride
Saurabh Malik
Tribune News Service

All you guys and dolls leaving the cool comfort of your air-conditioned rooms, do not let the blazing sun tone down your mood. Just go through our hot guide for cool attitude compiled after talking to experts for hours and hours. Just for you.

First of all do not let Apollo melt your sunny disposition and turn you into a heat-hater. Put fun back in your stride by outsmarting the sun. Liberally apply sunscreen on face, arms, shoulders and neck at least half an hour before you step out in the open.

Reapply after every two hours. It's essential. A dull complexion can make you feel weary and hesitant. About sunscreens, we will be giving you the details in our coming issues. As of now just remember to buy a good sun-neutralising formulation.

Lighten your load before you kick-start your scooter.

All that stuff crammed in your bag hanging from across your fragile shoulder can tire, at least bore, you down easily.

Stuff in just the bare-essentials to reduce the burden. A wallet, lip balm, sunglasses, car and house keys, besides necessary documents, will do.

Also, keep tissue paper handy for keeping clean your visage lest you end up will pimples all over.

Take a break in between the shopping trips to regain your stamina.

Cool off at a centrally air-conditioned mall or shop after picking up vegetables for the dinner. You can simply walk in, have a look and come out if you find the stuff inside expensive. Or else, buy things with maximum retail price specified on the wrapping.

Remember to feed on fruits. No, we are not suggesting that you should hog fruit-chat offered by road-side vendors.

Rather, you should avoid the stuff especially if it is uncovered or there are flies hovering overhead.

Try melon. Keep it in the refrigerator at your house and savour it "without any tension". Also, include tomato and cucumber in your diet. They have high water content. Are good for you during the summers.

At home, try to take a short siesta in the middle of the day. If possible, that is. A nice nap in the afternoon with the fan creating a gentle breeze will soothe you. Fans do not lower the temperature, but help circulate stagnant air and cool the body by evaporating sweat.

Also, relax with chilled cucumber slices covering your exhausted eyes. The exercise will not only soothe your tired peppers, but within minutes you will feel fresh and better.

Do not hesitate in taking bath with cold water twice a day. No, you should not rush into a washroom as soon as you reach home. Relax and soak yourself up after adding lavender. It will lift your spirits. So folks, go ahead.

So gals, if you haven't picked up a cute little dress in purple, rush to the market now.

Do not waste time. Go, buy yourself a nice crinkled sleeveless top in plum-purple. You can even purchase a three-quarter sleeved shirt. No doubt about it.

Remember to pair it with flared pants of same hue. Low-waist flared pants are also in. If you can, wear a sequin-trimmed skirt in pansy-violet. It looks simply great. Double-front pocket shorts are the latest in vogue.

Also, do not forget to wear leather thongs or wedge sandals in matching colour. Tie-up chappals can also be worn, comfortably Just try..

This is not all. Pick up purply plastic hoops to go along with your dress. Drop earrings also look chic. This is for sure.

Last thing, buy a lavender-blue eye-shadow to create that electrifying effect. All the best kids..


Venus Speaks
Sunscreen is the secret

SHE does not go out in the open without applying thick layers of sunscreen lotion. No, not even for five minutes.

This is not all. She reapplies the lotion after every two hours, even if she is in a car.

“I always make it a point to carry tissue paper in my bag,” plus two student Ira Kansal asserts. “After every two hours or so, I wipe clean my visage before applying the lotion”.

She also believes in covering her face with a scarf before going out on a two-wheeler.

“I wrap myself up nicely and properly so that sun’s blazing rays are not able to spoil my complexion,” she asserts. “Also, I make it a point to wear shirts with full sleeves.


Tip Top
Drink for vibrant looks

Drink a lot. No, we are not talking of beer. But water. Gulp as much as you can. Whenever possible. For that healthy vibrant look and flawless complexion. Also to stay hydrated in the summers of 2003.

Before that, just make sure the water you drink is "pure". If that's a problem, carry your own water. Drive down to your office, or college, with a pet bottle filled with cold water.

Remember, you do not have to buy a bottle for Rs 12 everyday. In the evening,, simply place the bottle in a refrigerator. Allow the water to freeze. Next morning, take it out of the freezer and bring it along with you. It will remain cool throughout the day. That's for sure.


AC trouble? No problem

Are you facing problem in the office because of the air-conditioner? Well, don't just indulge in a verbal duel. If your colleague wishes the cooling to be the maximum despite your cold, there are other ways and means of sorting out the issue.

Carry a light jacket to the office. Go in for a cotton jacket in bright shade. Believe us, it will not look odd. You can wrap yourself up in a denim jacket also. Wind-cheaters are the best for such occasions.

A nice scarf covering you head will also do the trick. You do not have to spend much. You can get it for just Rs 50. Another thing. Change the direction of the blades. Just make sure that the blast is not direct. Now get down to work without bothering about others.


Brave sun with a smile

Hey kids, stop cursing Apollo. Face his onslaught with a brave visage. Remember it is not essential to use a toner in summers unless you have a very oily skin. But you can always use it to freshen up your tired visage.

If you do not believe it, ask Chahat. The under-grad has just purchased a one-step cleanser toner after pulling out Rs 135 from her wallet. "It was worth the dough," she utters. "I feel so fresh after using it. The best thing about the product is that it is absolutely handy".

Another thing. In case of sensitive skin, forget all you know about soaps. Use a face wash instead. Start the day with a good detoxifying cleanser.


Songs for summers

Driving down the road in the summers can be quite boring. Specially if you are not listening to nice songs on the stereo. That’s why Radio Buzz has complied summer songs just for you. Go ahead folks.
