Ivy Sandhu,a former student of Kundan Vidya Mandir School , topped the exam for entrance to Christian Medical College here.Ivy secured the 48th rank in PMT and was 1st in Ludhiana district.

Talking to Ludhiana Tribune, Ivy said,"Till 11th class, I had no goal. But then it became clear to me that I wanted to be a doctor. It was my own decision as our family is not of doctors. From then on I became very serious about my studies. Of course I did not give up watching television for I had to take a break. Till class X my mother helped me in my studies. It was only in the beginning of Class 12 that I joined tutorials. I would suggest to students to rely on their ownself." OC



A clarification

Bar panel’s move on Press freedom decried
Our Correspondent

Ludhiana, August 14
The District Bar Association (DBA) which has been projecting itself as a champion of the freedom of the Press and natural justice today tried to pass a resolution that prevents the DBA members from talking to mediapersons without prior authorisation from the executive.

Some members said mediapersons should be pulled up for publishing news items regarding disputes of the DBA, terming it to be negative publicity. Interestingly, certain speakers were those persons, who used to call mediapersons for covering the meetings of the DBA.

Meanwhile, resentment was seen amongst the reporters representing different newspapers, who said that they had decided to boycott the functions of the DBA, if there was any encroachment upon their fundamental right of freedom of expression. However, the DBA president, Mr Balwinder Goel, claimed that there was a communication gap and we had not passed a resolution stopping the mediapersons from publishing any newsitems. He said the Bar had only passed the resolution to stop its members from spreading misinformation.

The DBA issued a press release, saying, “It is unanimously passed that if any member spreads misinformation regarding the activities of the DBA to the Press without authorisation from the Executive, in a self-styled manner, action should be taken against that member”.

On the other hand, Mr Harish Rai Dhanda, member of the Bar Council of Punjab and Haryana and former president of the DBA, termed all this to be undemocratic. He said he would fight for the freedom of expression and against any move to stop the mediapersons from publishing correct news items relating to the Bar.
