Lawyers boycott court, support students protest

Lawyers boycott court, support students protest

Express News Service

First Published: 27 Jul 2010 11:52:00 PM IST

PUDUCHERRY: In a bid to extend their support to the budding advocates studying at the Dr B R Ambedkar Government Law College in Puducherry, the advocates of the Puducherry Bar Association boycotted the Puducherry court here on Tuesday. This was following the students boycott last Friday demanding that the law college authorities address the problems of the students. The court proceedings came to a standstill due to boycott.

"We have been fighting for our cause for several years now. The hostel, construction for which was completed four years ago, is yet to be opened even after its inauguration. The admission process for the first year in the three and five year courses, which was supposed to have begin well in advance, have not been started either," rued David Lourdnathan, a second year student.

Coupled with this was the demand that the All India Bar Council cancel the All India Bar Council Entrance Examination. The other demands include playgrounds, better facilities and filling up the vacancy of the principal's post.

Frustrated by the lack of response from the authorities, the students themselves had earlier unveiled a statue that had remained closed ever since its installation, three years ago. Several months later, when the ministers arrived at the college to unveil the statue, the students had refused to let them enter the college to mark their protest.

THE HINDU: Hurdles along ECR......

Hurdles along ECR

Jul 20, 2010

East Coast Road, which was formed in 1998 by interlinking a series of small village roads that connected fishing villages along the coast of Bay of Bengal, now serves tourists and weekend revellers. Apart from development in tourism and real estate sector, safety issues and basic infrastructure are the major issues for the people living along the corridor.

According to statistics, there is one accident every day and around 10 to 15 fatal accidents happen in a year on the 113-km road between Akkarai and Keezh Puthupattu near Puducherry. Photo: M. Karunakaran

Though over-speeding is a major problem, speed breakers cannot be introduced on the road as it is a national highway. Photo: M. Karunakaran

East Coast Road runs through the heart of five village panchayats and a town panchayat. Starting from Kottivakkam, ECR passes through Palavakkam, Neelangarai, Injambakkam and Uthandi Village Panchayats and also through Sholinganallur town panchayat and supports a huge population.

Basic infrastructure and the development of ECR had hardly brought about any positive change in the quality of lives of people here. Increasing intrusion of seawater and contamination of local water sources had a disastrous impact on the quality of water supplied to residents. Photo: M. Karunakaran

மேதையான (கி)ராமராஜன்

மேதையான (கி)ராமராஜன்

புதன்கிழமை, 21 ஜூலை 2010 02:32

ஒரு காலத்தில் சூப்பர் ஸ்டார் ரஜினிகாந்தையே திரும்பிப் பார்க்க வைத்த வெற்றிகளுக்கு சொந்தக்காரார் ராமராஜன். தான் நடிக்கும் ஒரு படத்தின் பாடலில் வந்த ஆபாச வரிகளை ஆட்சேபித்த 'மாபெரும் குற்றத்துக்காக' அதுவரை அவரது படங்களின் வெற்றிகளுக்கு பக்க பலமாக இருந்த ஒரு பிரபலத்தின் கோபத்துக்கு அநியாயமாக ராமராஜன் ஆளாக, அதன்பிறகு அவருக்கு இறங்குமுகம்.

---என்று சாதாரணமாக ஒற்றை வார்த்தையில் சொல்லி விட முடியாது . மலை உச்சியில் இருந்து அதலபாதாளத்துக்கு உருண்ட முகம் என்று சொல்வது கூட கம்மிதான்.

நாற்பத்து மூணு படங்களில் கதாநாயகனாக வலம் வந்த ராமராஜன், திடீரென்று தமிழ் சினிமா உலகினின்றும், காற்றில் கரைந்தது போல ஆனார்.

ramarajan-stills032

ஒரு நிலையில் பல படங்களில் அண்ணனாக மாமனாக மச்சானாக நடிக்கக வாய்ப்பு வந்தபோது எல்லாம் மிக சிரமப்பட்ட போதும்கூட அவற்றை மறுத்தவர் ராமராஜன். தவிர எத்தனையோ தொலைக்காட்சி வாய்ப்புகளை மறுத்தவர். அவ்வளவு ஏன்..? புகழ் உச்சியில் இருந்தது முதல் இதுவரை தனிப்பட்ட முறையில் எந்த ஒரு தொலைக்காட்சிக்கும் (தான் சார்ந்த கட்சியின் ஜெயா டிவி உட்பட) ஒரு பேட்டி கூட கொடுக்காதவர். 'என் முகத்தை திரையில் காட்டத்தான் தயாரிப்பாளர் எனக்கு சம்பளம் தருகிறார். நான் அதை டிவியில் காட்டினால் அதன் மூலம் சில ரசிகர்களை, திரையரங்குக்குக்குப் போகும் ஆர்வத்தில் இருந்து நான் விலக்கி, தயாரிப்பாளரின் வயிற்றில் அடிப்பதாக அர்த்தமாகிவிடும் ' என்று அறிவித்தவர்.

சரி, இதெல்லாம் இப்போது எதற்கு என்று கேட்பவரா நீங்கள்? காரணம் உண்டு.

பீனிக்ஸ் பறவை போல மீண்டிருக்கிறார் ராமராஜன்.

ஆம்!

ramarajan-tamil-actor-photos

கலைமகள் கலைக்கூடம் என்ற நிறுவனம் என்.டி. ஜி. சரவணன் இயக்கத்தில் தயாரித்திருக்கும் படத்தில் மீண்டும் ராமராஜன் கதாநாயகனாக இரண்டாவது ரவுண்டில் குதிக்கிறார் . கௌசிகா என்ற கல்கத்தா பெண் ராமராஜனுக்கு ஜோடியாக நடிக்கும் இந்தப் படத்தில் ராமராஜனின் சொந்த ஊரான மேலூர் அடங்கிய வெள்ளூர் நாடு என்ற பகுதியில் 32 கிராம மக்கள் சேர்ந்து நடத்தும் திருவிழா ஒன்று சிறப்பாகப் படம் பிடிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. தனுஷ்கோடி தீவிலும் இதன் படப்பிடிப்பு நடந்துள்ளது.

ராமராஜனை புதிய கோணத்தில் காட்ட வேண்டுமென்பதற்காக கடலூர் பகுதியில் நடந்த உண்மை சம்பவத்தை வைத்து எடுக்கப் பட்டிருக்கும் இந்தப் படத்தில் ராமராஜனுக்கு ஆசிரியர் கதாபாத்திரம். ஆனாலும், என்ன? பாடல் காட்சிகளில் இதுவரை இல்லாத புதுமையாக நவீன உடைகள் நவீன நடனம் என்று புது ஆட்டம் போடுகிறார் ராமராஜன்.

படத்தின் பாடலிசை வெளியீட்டு விழா அண்மையில் சென்னை பிலிம் சேம்பர் திரையரங்கத்தில் நடந்த போது... என்ன அதிசயம்! வழக்கமாக காஸ்மாபாலிட்டன் குரல்கள் கேட்கும் அந்தப் பகுதி, எதோ கிராமத்து திருவிழா நடக்கும் இடம் போல ஆகியிருந்தது. தமிழ்நாட்டின் பல பகுதிகளில் இருந்தும் ஆட்டோ, வேன். மூணு சக்கர சைக்கிள் இவற்றில் ஸ்பீக்கர் கட்டி வந்திருந்த (காசுக்கு மாரடிக்க வராமல் நிஜமான பாசத்தோடு வந்திருந்த) ராமராஜன் ரசிகர்கள் பலரால் அதகளப்பட்டது அந்தப் பகுதி.

திரையிடப் பட்ட பாடல்களில் கோட் சூட் கறுப்புக் கண்ணாடி என்று ராமராஜன் நடனம் ஆடுவது கொஞ்சம் (அவருக்கு) புதுசுதான்.

விசி குகநாதன், சார்லி, பார்த்திபன், இயக்குனர் ஹரி என்று பலரும் கலந்து கொண்ட அந்த விழாவில் நடிகர் சார்லி பேசும்போது 'ராமராஜன் எப்பேர்பட்ட மனிதர்! எத்தனை புது தயாரிப்பாளர்களை உருவாக்கியவர். இடையில கஷ்டம் வந்த போதும் அவரு இறங்கிப் போகல. இன்னும் ஏதாவது ஒரு சேனல்ல அவரு படம் ஒளிபரப்பாகிக்கிட்டுதான் இருக்கு.

இப்பல்லாம் எந்தப் படத்தோட பாடலிசை வெளியீட்டு விழானு போனாலும் ஓஓஓஒ ன்னு பத்து நிமிஷம் கத்திட்டு பங்க்ஷன் முடிஞ்சு போச்சு போங்கன்னு சொல்றாங்க. ஆனால் இதுல தினா போட்டிருக்கற ஏழு பாடல்களும் தெளிவா வார்த்தை புரியற மாதிரி இருக்கு. அதுக்காக பாராட்டுகள். படிக்காத மேதை படம் ஹிட்டு. படிக்காதவன் ஹிட்டு. அதனால இந்த மேதை படமும் ஹிட்டு' என்று வித்தியாசமாய்ப் பாராட்டிவிட்டுப் போனார்.

குகநாதன் பேச்சு ரொம்ப ஆழமானது என்றாலும் சில பகுதிகள் மட்டுமே இங்கே உங்களுக்காக

' புரட்சித்தலைவர் எப்படியோ அப்படியே நடிகர்களில் ராமராஜனும்! எம். ஜி. ஆர். மிகப் பெரிய சூப்பர் ஸ்டாராக இருந்தாலும் ஏவி.எம்., ஜெமினி வாகினி போன்ற நிறுவனங்களுக்கு ஒரு படமோ இரண்டு படமோ தான் செய்தார். ஆனால், தன்னோடு முப்பத்தைந்து ரூபாய சம்பளத்தில் உடன் நடித்த சின்னப்பா தேவருக்கு இருபது படங்களுக்கு மேல் நடித்துக் கொடுத்தார். சிவாஜி தன்னோடு இருந்த டைலருக்கும் காஸ்டியூமருக்கும் படம் நடித்துக் கொடுத்தார்.

அதன் பிறகு ராமராஜன்தான் எத்தனயோ எளிய மனிதர்களை தயாரிப்பாளராக்கி அழகு பார்த்தார். பேனர் பின்னால் ஒளிந்து கொள்ளாமல் தன்னை நம்பி பலரை வாழவைத்த இவர்தான் நமது உண்மையான ஆண்மகன்.

அதுவும் ராமராஜன நடித்த படங்கள் எல்லாம் கண்ணியமான, கலாச்சாரம் கெடாத படங்கள், எளியவர்கள் தயாரிப்பாளராக உயர்ந்து படம் எடுத்து, அப்படி சிறு படத்தயாரிப்பாளர்கள் வளர்ந்தால் சினிமா வளரும் என்ற உண்மையை தனிமனிதனாக சாதித்துக் காட்டியவர் ராமராஜன். இப்போது சிறு படத் தயாரிப்பாளர்கள் நிலைமை சரியில்லை. எனவே தமிழ் திரையுலகின் நலனுக்காக ராமராஜன் மீண்டும் எழுச்சியுறுவது அவசியமானது. ' என்று கூறிய குகநாதன், 'இங்கே வந்திருக்கும் இயக்குனர் ஹரி ராமராஜனை வைத்து ஒரு படம், இயக்க வேண்டும். அது தமிழ் சினிமாவுக்கே நன்மையாக இருக்கும்' என்று வேண்டுகோள் வைத்து விட்டுப் போனார்.

பார்த்திபன் பேசும்போது ' ராமராஜனுக்கு இங்க இவ்வளவு பெரிய மாலை போட்டாங்களே. அதுல உள்ள ரோஜா இதழ்கள் எல்லாம் உங்களோட இதயங்கள். அதான் உங்க கூட்டத்தைப் போலவே மாலையும் பெருசா இருந்தது.

நாங்க எல்லாரும் அசிஸ்டண்டா கஷ்டப்பட்ட காலத்துல எங்கப்பாவுக்கு உடம்பு சரியில்லன்னு நான் போய் நின்னப்ப, அன்னிக்கே ஐநூறு ரூபாய பணம் கொடுத்தவர் ராமராஜன். சாப்பாட்டு நேரத்துல கரெக்டா அவர் ரூமுக்கு போய் நான் பலமுறை சாப்பிட்டுருக்கேன். அதனால அவரு அன்னிக்கே மக்கள் நாயகனாதான் இருந்தாரு.

மக்கள் நாயகன் என்ற பேர்ல கூட மக்கள் என்ற வார்த்தைதான் முதல்ல வருது. நீங்க இன்னிக்கும் அவருக்கு தந்து கொண்டிருக்கும் ஆதரவு பிரம்மாதமானது' என்று வியந்தார்.

new-ramarajan-movie-stills-5_720

பலத்த ஆரவாரத்துக்கு இடையே அமைதியாகபேசினார் ராமராஜன். 'நான் சாதரணமான நிலையில இருந்து வந்தவன். நம்மளை மாதிரி சாதாரணமான மனுஷங்களுக்கு கை கொடுப்போம் என்ற எண்ணத்துலதான் என்ன மாதிரி எளிய மனிதர்கள் பலரை தயாரிப்பாளரா ஆக்கினேன். மத்த படி பெரிய தயாரிப்பாளர்கள் படத்துல நடிக்கக் கூடாதுன்னு இல்ல.

ஆனா பெரிய சரிவுகளை சந்திச்சேன். வருஷத்துக்கு எட்டு படம் கொடுத்த நான் கடந்த எட்டு வருஷமா ஒரு படம் கூட கொடுக்கல' என்று கூற

' இல்ல தலைவா.. பத்து வருஷமா படமே தரல' என்று கத்தும் ரசிகரை ஆதுரமாகப் பார்த்துவிட்டு, தொடர்ந்த ராமராஜன், ' ஆனா... இத்தனை வருஷ இடைவெளிக்குப் பின்னாடியும் என்னை மறக்காம இன்னிக்கு இவ்வளவு பேர் என் பின்னாடி இருக்கீங்கன்னா.. நான் என் தாய் தந்தைக்கு கூட உண்மையா இருக்கணும்னு அவசியம் இல்ல... உங்களுக்கு உண்மையா இருந்தா போதும்னு நினைக்கிறேன்' என்று சொல்லிவிட்டு மேல பேச முடியாமல், கண்ணீர் விட்டு அழ ஆரம்பித்தார்.

அரங்கமே நெகிழ்ச்சியில் இளகி உறைய 'இந்தப் படம் உங்க எல்லோரையும் சந்தோஷப்படுத்தும்' என்று கூறி முடித்தார்.

அப்புறமென்ன... அரங்குக்கு வெளியே மீண்டும் பல்வேறு வாகன ஒலிபெருக்கிகளில், மதுர மருக்கொழுந்து வாசமும் செண்பக வாசமும் மாங்குயில் பூங்குயிலின் குரலும் பெருமையுள்ள பேச்சியின் ஒலியும் கேட்டுக் கொண்டே இருந்தன.

Indian rupee to have a distinct symbol

PTI

NEW DELHI, July 15, 2010

The symbol of Indian Rupee approved by the Union Cabinet.

Special Arrangement The symbol of Indian Rupee approved by the Union Cabinet.

The Indian rupee will have its own symbol, a mix of the Devanagri 'Ra' and Roman 'R', to become the fifth currency in the world to have a distinct identity.

The new symbol, designed by IIT post-graduate D. Uday Kumar was approved by the Union Cabinet today.

The rupee will join the elite club of U.S. dollar, British pound-sterling, Euro and Japanese yen to have its own symbol.

The symbol will be printed or embossed on currency notes or coins, Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni told reporters after the Cabinet meeting.

Mr. Kumar's entry was chosen from among 3,000 designs competing for the currency symbol. He will get an award of Rs. 2.5 lakhs.

Ms. Soni said the government will try that the symbol is adopted within six months in the country and globally within 18 to 24 months.

The symbol will feature on computer key boards and software so that it can be printed and displayed in electronic and print, she said.

Ms. Soni said it would also help in distinguishing the Indian currency from rupee or rupiah of countries like Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Indonesia.

A dark circle engulfed the sun this morning, providing a visual treat to residents of Chennai and its suburbs and nearby Kancheepuram.

Director of Periyar Science and Technology Centre P. Iyamperumal described the occurrence as 'sun halo' and said it was a regular phenomenon caused by differential moisture content in the atmosphere.

"Such a phenomenon is not harmful but it should not be viewed for more than a second with the naked eye," he said.

The halo, which was visible from around 11.30 hrs (IST), would last for about two hours, he added.

Palakkad to honour its another great son MGR

STAFF REPORTER

PALAKKAD, July 11, 2010

A file picture of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and founder of AIADMK M.G. Ramachandran.

A file picture of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and founder of AIADMK M.G. Ramachandran.

The district that had produced some of the greatest artists and musicians of the country is honouring its yet another great son, the well known silver screen icon 'Makkal Thilakam' and the late Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu M.G. Ramachandran by constructing a memorial for him in his ancestral village of Vadavannur in Chittur taluk, 15 km from Palakkad.

The memorial – a Community Hall – constructed by the Vadavannur Grama Panchayat will be inaugurated by Union Minister of State for Home Mullappally Ramachandran on Monday.

The ancestral house of MGR 's mother Sathyabhama is nearby and a distant relative of him is living there now.

Though MGR was born in Sri Lanka, his father Maruthur Gopala Menon belonging to the nearby Nalleppilly village returned to Vadavannur after his retirement as the Magistrate of Kandy in Sri Lanka and stayed for some time in their ancestral house.

After his death MGR 's mother left with her another son M.G. Chakrapani to live with her elder brother at Kumbakonam in Thanjavur district.

While living there both the brothers entered the film world.

M.G.R had married from Kuzhalmannam in Palakkad. His first wife was Ammukutty alias Sadanandavathy, daughter of Kadukunni Nair and Mokambika Amma.

After her death only MGR married actress Janaki. In fact some of the relatives of Janaki had married from Vadavannur.

Though the family left Vadavannur MGR had visited his ancestral house on a number of times even after becoming Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, the local people said.

The Grama Panchayat President of Vadavannur K.S. Sheeja said that the Panchayat has constructed the memorial which will be used has a conference hall and Kalyana Mandapam. An amount of Rs.52 lakh was spent from the M.L.A's local area development fund of K. Achuthan.

The Kalyana Mandapam will be rented to poor families on a lower rate as MGR had helped many poor families in conducting marriages.

It is in the memory of that great noble heart, the memorial hall will be leased out for marriages also, the president said.

Incorporates all new trains announced in budget for State

All new trains announced by Railway Minister in the budget for Tamil Nadu have been incorporated in the new railway timetable, which comes into force on Thursday.

Releasing the timetable here on Wednesday, Southern Railway General Manager Deepak Krishan said the zone had fixed the time for all the new trains. The exact date of their introduction would be notified later.

The new trains are: Chennai Central – Coimbatore Duronto Express (daytime); Chennai Central – Haldia Weekly Express; Chennai Central – New Jalpaiguri Weekly Express; Coimbatore – Tirupati Intercity (Tri-weekly) Express; Madurai – Tirupati (Bi-weekly) Express; Tiruchirapalli – Mangalore (Weekly) Express; Nagercoil – Bangalore Weekly Express (via Madurai); and Puducherry – Howrah (Weekly) Express via Katpadi, Vellore Cantonment and Villupuram.

The Duronto Express to Coimbatore will be a non-stop train and will run on all days except Tuesdays.

In addition to the above trains, main-line EMU service is to be introduced from Chennai Central to Tirupati, Salem to Katpadi, and Coimbatore to Erode on all days except Sundays. A diesel EMU service will be operated daily between Mayiladuthurai and Thanjavur and a passenger service between Tiruchendur and Tirunelveli. After completing the gauge conversion of Coimbatore – Pollachi section, a passenger service will be introduced in the section. The General Manager said from July 6, the Chennai Central –Mysore Shatabdi Express would run on Tuesdays; but it would not run on Wednesdays.

The arrival and departure timings of a few trains from Chennai Egmore had been changed. The departure timing of the Shengottai Pothigai Express, Tirunelveli Nellai Express, Madurai Pandiyan Express, and Rameswaram Express would be revised from August 1. Similarly the changed arrival timings of incoming trains to Egmore would come into effect between July 30 and August 7. Till then the existing timings would continue, Mr. Deepak Krishan added.

Regarding the status of ongoing projects in the State, he said gauge conversion between Tirunelveli and Tenkasi, Mayiladuthurai and Tiruvarur, Dindigul and Palani and Palakad and Pollachi would be completed by March next year.

The doubling of Ennore- Athipet section would be completed by September. As the doubling of Chengalpattu – Villupuram section would take time, the zone had decided to go for patch doubling between certain stations in the section to avoid crossing of trains. A new railway line was being laid to Velankanni from Nagore for the benefit of pilgrims and would become operational soon. Namakkal town would be brought into the railway map by this financial year end as work on a new line between Salem and Namakkal was in progress.

Till May this year, the zone operated 239 special trains, which fetched additional revenue of Rs.13 crore.
