India to give Kasab’s DNA sample

India will give Pakistan another set of evidence on the involvement of Pakistani elements in the terrorist attacks in Mumbai.DNA samples and fingerprints of Mohammad Ajmal Amir Kasab, the only terrorist captured alive for the Mumbai terrorist attacks in November 2008, are likely to be handed over to Pakistan soon.Sources say DNA sample is admissible as evidence to determine identity in Pakistani anti-terrorism court. India is also likely to name Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi and Zarar Shah, leaders of the terrorist group Lashkar-e-Toiba, as conspirators of the terrorist attacks in the charge sheet.
India expects Interpol to issue red corner notice against the two Lashkar leaders.Pakistan, which has all but accepted that Kasab is a Pakistani, on Sunday said Indian investigators will “be more than welcome” to help in its probe into the terror strikes.Rehman Malik, chief of Pakistan’s Interior Ministry, said anyone found to be involved in the “heinous” attacks would be prosecuted under the country’s anti-terror laws. “All the culprits (involved in the Mumbai attacks) must be apprehended. Who will support such acts?” he said in Lahore.Earlier, during an interview with Geo News channel, Malik said Pakistan’s investigations into the Mumbai attacks are being conducted under the country’s laws and the government will not accept any foreign pressure in this regard.
Pakistan doesn’t need the assistance of foreign countries but investigators will “be more than welcome” to help in the probe. “Pakistan is very open and the inquiry officers have been bestowed with full powers to fulfill their task,” Malik said. If people were found of involvement in the “heinous” attacks, they would be prosecuted under Pakistan’s Anti-Terrorism Act. On January 5, India handed Pakistan a dossier of evidence that included information on interrogations, weapons and data gleaned from satellite phones used by the attackers who attacked iconic Mumbai targets such as hotels and a Jewish center.India said the material proved Pakistan-based militants plotted and executed the Mumbai attacks. Indian officials have repeatedly alleged that Pakistani intelligence agents were involved. Pakistan denies that, though it has accepted that Kasab is a Pakistani.

India Inc shifts to selective recruitment

Selective hiring and moderation of unreasonable expectations in the salary is the new mantra among HR professionals. Companies such as Tata Capital and Hinduja Group have reworked their hiring plans.Tata Capital Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Sons, which recently hired Harshawardhan Sabale as Co-head for its PE Growth Fund has restructured its hiring plans and is now hiring currently for critical positions.

Amar Sinhji, head (human resources), Tata Capital Ltd told FE, “Right now we are not doing mass hiring but are looking at filling critical positions only. But will also be hiring about 30-40 graduates at the junior level and post graduates from premier management institutes as well.”

Similarly, Hinduja Group continues to hire for its new initiatives but becomes selective. Also there has been no revision or cut in the compensation however the unreasonable hike of 50%-80% has now been moderated,” said Sudhanshu Tripathi, group president, Hinduja Group.

Experts believe that salaries are now rationalised and justified compared to the extraordinary increase earlier. Salary of a CEO in the financial service sector is the highest and ranges anywhere between Rs 1.5 – 3 crore. A CEO in IT, telecom and insurance draws anywhere is between Rs 1-2 crore. In the media and entertainment the salary is between Rs 1.5 to 2.75 crore and in the pharma sector it is in the range of Rs 75 lakh to Rs 1.5 crore. However, the manufacturing sector is the lowest payer with the CEO’s salary in this sector ranging from Rs 40-80 lakh only. In the retail sector CEO of Indian retail company gets paid in the range of Rs 80 lakh to Rs 1.2 crore and an MNC retail company CEO gets paid up Rs 2 crore, say experts.

Dutch couple pays $204 for samosas

default2

A Dutch couple on a visit to the eastern Indian state of Bihar paid 10,000 rupees ($204) for four samosas, a spicy deep-fried snack that usually doesn’t cost more than a few rupees, a newspaper reported on Monday.

After the tourists ate the snacks, a stall owner at the Sonepur cattle fair last week told them his “special” samosas cost more because they were made of herbs and had aphrodisiac qualities .

After an argument, the couple paid the shopkeeper. But they later complained to a policeman.

Police forced the shopkeeper to return the change — 9,990 rupees

Thats INDIA n Indians wont miss any oppurtunity

Indian Flag on MOON

The last and final step of chandrayaan is to be completed by 8 pm.The vehicle contains a camera to send images from the moon.Even NASA hasnt acheived this . chandrayaan_flag_248 But it’s going where no TV and no kid has ever been before.It’s called the Moon Impact Probe (MIP) — India’s first attempt at touching down on the lunar surface.Don’t let its size fool you, for there’s a lot tucked away inside the MIP. There’s a device to constantly check its height as it falls, another to check what the composition of air on the moon, and a video camera to photograph the moon from close range.
Those photographs will help the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) decide where to land India’s first moon rover a few years from now. The MIP also has the Indian flag painted on its sides and a Sanskrit shloka on one side.The MIP will detach from the Chandrayaan a 100 km above the moon. As it falls, it will keep sending information back to the satellite. Closer to the surface, rockets will be fired, to slow down its speed and soften impact. After half an hour of free fall, the MIP will crash-land on the south pole of moon.
It was former president APJ Abdul Kalam who thought of sending MIP to the moon. If it weren’t for him, Chandrayaan would only have orbited the moon.
