2014-10-30Thane civic chief eyes 'edu hub' tag for lake city
Thane civic chief eyes ‘edu hub’ tag for lake cityThe author has posted comments on this articleSanjeev Shivadekar, TNN | Oct 30, 2014, 09.53PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4Thane: If all goes as planned then the lake city may soon get the tag of being an educational hub. Renowned educational institutes like G D Somani, Ryan International, Indian Education Society (IES), St Pius and Anandibai Podar have shown interest in setting up shop in the city, civic officials claim. The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has reserved 20 plots for educational institutes, out of which nine have been slotted for international and other well-known institutes in the country. The remaining have been allotted for institutes that are already operating in the city and would wish to expand their wings in the future. ''We have received applications from various reputed educational institutes who are interested in setting up their branches in Thane,'' a civic official said. The plan of inviting reputed firms to Thane is the brainchild of civic chief Aseem Gupta. ''The civic chief wants the city to get the educational hub tag, just like Pune,'' the official added. The decision of allotting a plot will depend on several parameters, including the amount of experience an educational institute has, the strength of the teaching and non-teaching staff, etc. Principal and director of Poddar School, Mumbai, Avnita Bir, has welcomed the move. ''Today, parents want to give the best education to their kids. Hence, reserving plots for educational institutes is a good move. This will have a positive impact on the society,'' she said. Citizens, too, feel that the TMC's move to reserve plots for educational institutes will not only improve the quality of learning, but also solve the encroachment problem. ''The city is developing rapidly and students have to go all way to Mumbai or other cities for higher education. Setting up institutes that offer pharmacy, medical and engineering will add more value to the lake city,'' said Chetna Chaudhari, a resident of Thane. However, educational activists, Rames Panse, feels that the TMC's move to allot land for reputed institutes is not justified. ''Reputed institutes have a lot of money to invest. There is no need to give them a plot at concessional rates,'' he said. Article continuesStay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps. Click here to download it for your device.

2014-10-3010-year-old dies in Thane due to explosion in toil
10-year-old dies in Thane due to explosion in toilet septic tank Comments Email Print Express News Service | Mumbai | Posted: October 30, 2014 10:06 pm A ten-year-old boy, Akash Singh, died on Wednesday night due to an explosion in the septic tank of a public toilet at Lokmanya Nagar in Thane. The explosion happened as the septic tank had not been cleaned in a long time. Officials from the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) had a meeting about the incident on Thursday. A TMC official said on the condition of anonymity, “We had originally built the toilets far from the slum settlements, but now the encroachments have grown and spread around the toilets. There is no way for any vehicle to go and use suction to clean the septic tanks. There was probably a rock or some hard material stuck creating a blockage in the pipe and that must have led to the explosion.” He said that there are several such slum areas where the TMC now has no vehicular access to the toilets. “The meeting today was to assess the situation and figure out how the TMC can routinely clean all such toilets using the best possible techniques to avoid the recurrence of such an incident,” he added.

Thane civic body offers plots to top educational institutesThe author has posted comments on this articleSanjeev Shivadekar, TNN | Oct 29, 2014, 10.51PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4THANE: The Lake City may soon get an 'educational hub' tag as the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has received a "good response" to its proposal to get renowned educational institutes to start centres here. G D Somani, Ryan International, Indian Education Society (IES), St Pius and Anandibai Podar have expressed interest in setting up educational centres. Of the 20 plots reserved for educational purposes, TMC had earmarked nine for national or international educational institutes to set up campuses, while the remaining were reserved for local institutes, of which four have been allotted. "Reputed educational firms have expressed interest in setting up branches in Thane," a civic official said. Avnita Bir, principal and director, R N Poddar School (Mumbai), said, "There is hunger in society to get the best education for children. Hence, reserving plots for intuitions having expertise in the field of education not only helps in educating children but even has a positive impact on society." Many children travel to Mumbai for education, so setting up reputed institutes here will ease the burden on children for travelling, she added. Civic sources said the idea of inviting reputed firms to Thane was the brainchild of civic chief Aseem Gupta. "Thane is known as the Lake City. But, like Pune, he wants Thane to get the 'educational hub' tag," the official added. The allotment of plots will be decided based on several parameters, including experience of the educational institute, teaching and non-teaching staff strength. Education reformist Rames Panse said, "Reputed firms have ample money to invest and start educational institutes. There is no need to give plots at concessional rates to such institutes," he said, adding, "Instead of encouraging other educational institutes, TMC must focus on and make efforts to improve the quality of education." Besides catering to educational needs of the Lake City, the scheme of allotting plots to educational barons will earn "decent" revenue for the corporation, which for the past few months has been struggling to meet its expenses. Thane citizens said TMC's move will help improve the quality of education in the city, and it will help stop encroachments on open plots. "Thane has witnessed widespread development and there is scope and a need for quality education. Setting up of educational institutes offering quality education in pharmacy, medial and engineering will add value to the Lake City," said Chetna Chaudhari, a resident of Thane.

The Thane Nagar police are on the look-out for her after a complaint was lodged on Saturday. The woman had approached the director claiming to be a movie producer, said the police. The complainant, Lekhraj Fakirchand Tandon is a resident of Chandivli. He has stated in his complaint that a few days before the incident, the woman contacted him, saying she had a budget of Rs. 8 crore for a movie and was looking for a director. The duo decided to meet in Thane to discuss the details. “On Thursday around 8.15pm, they met at a hotel in Thane.

Post Diwali sugar-free sweets still in demand in ThaneThe author has posted comments on this articleDebarati S Sen, TNN | Oct 27, 2014, 03.14PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4 THANE: Diwali is over, yet, the demand for sugar-free sweets is still going strong in the city. There are many health-conscious Thaneites who, aware of the harmful effects of sugar, are opting for sweets that are without sugar. R K Pandey, from a sweet shop in Manpada says, "There is a huge market for sugar-free sweets. During Diwali, we saw a huge increase in the demand and we were expecting a lull in the sales after the festivities were over. But the fact is that even now, we are witnessing a marked rise in the requests for sugar-free sweets." Khajur paak and anjeer paak - the two most popular sugar-free sweets, are palatable thanks to the pure ingredients used feel the mithaiwalas. "We use silvered, powdered or chopped dry fruits to make these sweets and so they are healthy also," says a worker at a local shop. The khajur and anjeer have high sweet content and so no extra sugar is added to them. Niharika Dalal, a resident of Wagle Estate says, "I know that anjeer and khajur are not good for diabetics because they are naturally very sweet, yet the fact that no extra sugar is added to make these sweets has tempted me to buy these." Chetan Patil from a sweet shop in Vikas Complex says, "There are also sugar-free cookies that are in demand here." Article continuesStay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps.

2014-10-25Thane celebrates Kali Puja - Times of India
Thane celebrates Kali PujaThe author has posted comments on this articleDebarati S Sen, TNN | Oct 25, 2014, 04.50PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4 THANE: If you missed out the Bengali celebrations during Durga Puja last month, then the Kali Puja is your chance to catch up. You can be at your Bengali best today, at the various city pandals and the Kalibaris in and around Thane. The celebrations that began in the wee hours of Friday, and at some places last night, comprised the puja, pushpanjali and the traditional Bengali bhog of khichudi, labda, bhaja, chatni, paayesh, mishti etc. Maa Kali devotees have been thronging pandals and the Kalibari premises since last evening. Subhas Banerjee, the general secretary of the Sommeloni Kalibari Bengali Education Trust, Vartak Nagar, says, "This is the 18th year of Kali Puja for us and we are going all out celebrating it with devotion. It is believed that ours is a very jagrut temple and whoever visits us leaves blessed. It is also the oldest Kali Puja in the city." Bimlesh Kumar Singh, a senior caretaker of the temple trust, says that this year, the puja began at 9pm last night. At midnight, there was the traditional 'boli' or sacrifice ceremony that comprises cutting a chaal kumro (white pumpkin) to symbolise animal sacrifice for mother goddess. "At 1 am, we had the pushpanjali, 1.30 am the hom (havan) and at 2 am, the bhog distribution of traditional khichudi, paayesh, chatni and mishti was carried out. The entire celebrations got over at around 4 am." Kalibari will be conducting the annokut celebrations today in the afternoon. Around 800 devotees are expected to partake the bhog distribution ceremony that will begin around 1.30 pm. The annokut bhog comprises bhaat, daal, tarkari, paayesh, mishti and chatni. "This is traditionally a poshchim-bongo concept. Thala bhore bhaat dewa hoy. There are five different types of bhaja also," says Banerjee. The New Bengal Club is another of Thane's popular Kali Puja pandals. The puja here began early. The secretary of the organisation, Suman Dutta says, "We are celebrating our 13th year of Kali Puja. This year, the puja started at around 8 pm. Devotees offered pushpanjali at around 10.30 pm, followed by bhog prasad." Members here have a strong commitment towards the environment and keeping that in mind, they have an eco-friendly Maa Kali idol. Talking about the venue, president Dipak Sengupta adds, "Our pandal is in front of the Regal Plaza building, Lokpuram, opposite Hiranandani Meadows." Amra Probasi from Hiranandani Estate (Ghodbunder Road) is celebrating its 13th year. President Kumar Rudra and secretary Samiran Biswas say that Kali Puja was the first big event that was organised by them after the club was formed in 2002. Subhashish Das, one of the members, says, "Ours is the biggest Kali Puja in Thane and we have devotees from Navi Mumbai, Kalyan, Vasai, Mulund and Bhandup coming here for the puja." The eco-friendly idol of Goddess Kali has been made by artistes from the Nadia district of West Bengal using the traditional clay and hay.

Rampant dumping, lack of cleaning kill fish in pond near Thane jailThe author has posted comments on this articleB B Nayak, TNN | Oct 26, 2014, 02.39AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4THANE: Lack of oxygen due to rampant pollution in the pond located in front of the Thane Central Jail has caused the death of a huge number of fish, if the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) is to be believed. Sanjiv Dutta, an activist, who spotted the dead fish said, "This pond at a central location has become a nullah over a period of time. Cleaning of this pond has become a distant mirage. Both the civic body and jail authorities are passing the buck on each other." The pollution control department of the TMC swung into action after receiving complaints. Civic sources said that the pond was under the ownership of Thane jail authorities, who have been taking care of it with the help of a contractor with whom the contract has expired. "Depletion of the required oxygen level in the water body needed for the survival of fish is the sole cause of their death. Unprecedented dumping of plastic waste in the pond has resulted in less oxygen. Heat has nothing to do with this traumatic state," said Manisha Pradhan, head of the civic pollution control wing. She added that as a goodwill gesture, they have pressed their machinery into service to clean the garbage and put potassium permanganate to disinfect the polluted water body though it is the job of the jail authorities. "The fumigation and cleaning process will take at least a week," she said. Jail sources said that their expired contract will be renewed soon.

Of the 18 assembly seats in Thane not even one MLA is from the minority community. The tally for the same in the 2009 assembly was two. Samajwadi Party candidate from Bhiwandi (West) Rashid Tahir who had won in 2009 lost the recently concluded assembly polls to Mahesh Chowghule of the BJP. Similarly the NCP's Gilbert Mendosa lost the Mira Bhyander seat to Narendra Mehta of the BJP. Mendosa who belongs to Christian community was elected as MLA in 2009 from the same constituency. Interestingly in 2014 BJP has emerged as winner in both the assembly constituencies which were represented by the candidates from the minority community in 2009. "Minority representation may have gone down. But it is the duty of the elected representatives to ensure that minorities in the region are not neglected," said Aruna Pendse, political analyst and associate professor in University of Mumbai. She further added that main stream political parties likes -Congress and NCP or even for that matter SP have failed to meet the expectations of the minority community. "The disillusioned voter from the minority community is looking for an alternative. Probably this could be one of the reasons for Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) making inroads in Maharashtra assembly," she added. Abu Azmi's son—Farhan lost the election from the Muslim dominated Bhiwandi (West) constituency, could be indication of people preferring MIM over the SP. It is not only Thane, across Maharashtra the minority representation in the state legislative assembly has gone down this year as against 2009. The number of Muslim MLAs in the state legislative assembly has dropped from 11 in 2009 to single digit in 2014. Nine Muslim MLAs have been elected to the state legislative assembly in 2014. Even Senior Congress leader Muzaffar Hussain echoed similar views. "MIM is eating into Congress votes. The divide in minority vote is benefiting 'communal' parties," he added. For instance the Congress lost Bhiwandi (West) seat by margin of nearly 6,000 votes. The number of votes bagged by the MIM candidate in the same seat was over 6,000. However, a section of BJP functionaries feel that the shift of minority voters towards BJP is indication of people accepting Prime Minister Narendra Modi's development vision plan and nothing to do with religion of the candidate.

Thane opts for a shhh...ubh Diwali celebration this yrThe author has posted comments on this articleB B Nayak, TNN | Oct 26, 2014, 02.40AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4THANE: It was a less noisy Diwali this year, as residents chose to burst crackers of low decibels keeping in mind the environmental issues. Business at fire cracker stalls too declined to almost half unlike previous seasons as awareness among residents has brought down the noisy Diwali to a symbolic gesture, more of a conventional one, keeping up the long tradition while embracing less-noisy slogan. Increasing cost of crackers and tightrope budget have been some of the major reasons that have led to substantial drop in noisy celebrations. Environmentalists have welcomed the transformation and hope that in the next couple of years the festivities will manifest its true sense as a festival of lights not be dominated by loud crackers. Demand for low-noise crackers in the market has increased this year, leading to a quiet Diwali as opposed to previous years. "People don't prefer high decibel firecrackers anymore. Due to increasing global warming impact leading to ecological imbalance and greater awareness in the civic society citizens are taking all precautionary measures to do their bit to promote clean and green environment," said an environmentalist Poonam Singhvi. And apex court directive against celebrating Diwali with high decibel crackers has forced people to keep the noise level low within permissible limits as it disturbs mental peace among elders and ailing lot. "We feel good when crackers with low decibel is being burst in the neighbourhood. It signifies the changing trend of low key celebration with adherence with the conventional method of lighting homes, a true spirit of Diwali," said Paresh Mokal, a resident.

Big B lights up home with eco-friendly lanterns from Thane store Friday, 24 October 2014 - 5:35am IST | Agency: DNA Ankita G Menon 13Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Thane's well known eco-friendly lantern shop, Heramb, has received an order of 30 lanterns that will adorn the windows of Amitabh Bachchan's house. These lanterns are made of cloth and have already been delivered at the actor's house. Last year, Hrithik Roshan and Shilpa Shetty had also booked for lanterns from the same store. Explaining the material that goes into making the products, Kailash Desale, owner of Heramb arts, said, "We have a variety of lanterns made from cane, cloth, jute and thread as well. Amitabh Bachchan asks for sample pieces every year to choose from. This time, they have chosen a square shaped lantern made of the well-known Belgaum Paithani saree. The one that was prepared for his house was orange in colour, with a blue border." They used five sarees to make 30 such lanterns that were ordered. Each piece was sold for Rs300 and the colour of the lanterns were all the same. "We send sample pieces of our new designs every year for them to choose. Sometimes, word spreads and other celebrities also place an order and we make fresh pieces if we do not have enough," adds Desale. Heramb has their own artisans who come up with innovative patterns every year. They have lanterns ranging between Rs30 and Rs1,000, based on the design and size. Initially, they used to sell all types of lanterns but since the eco-friendly ones gained popularity, they are now focusing on those alone. 13Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Amitabh BachchanEco-friendlyCelebritiesDiwaliHrithik RoshanShilpa Shetty

2014-10-23Ace Thane sculptor's Mahatma Gandhi statue ready f
Ace Thane sculptor's Mahatma Gandhi statue ready for Dandi March Thursday, 23 October 2014 - 5:55am IST | Agency: DNA Kanchan Srivastava 36Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Sadashiv Pethe, who made the Mahatma's first statue, installed in Delhi 1952, is working in tandem with the Centre and IIT-B's joint memorial in Gujarat Renowned sculptor Sadashive Sathe, 86, who was working on Gandhiji's statue for a proposed National Dandi Salt Satyagraha Monument at Dandi in Gujarat, is now ready with his five-meter-high masterpiece made of silicon bronze. The ace artist from Dombivli is credited with making Gandhi's first statue in 1952, which is installed in Delhi's central hall of Parliament. His masterpieces include Shivaji's statue near Gateway of India, Netaji Subhashchandra Bose and Lokmanya Tilak sculptures in Delhi, equestrian statue of Rani of Jhansi in Gwalior, Vinoba Bhave's in Wardha, and Prince Phillip's statue in Birmingham palace, among others. Sathe, who dedicates his success to Gandhiji, as his being the first statue he made he drew inspiration from Bapu, explains the challenges of the project in a note. "To visualise a legendary person like Gandhiji in sculpture form was not so easy. I wanted to include all his great qualities — vision, leadership and sacrifices — besides including his physical appearance at the time of the satyagraha, his firm belief in truth, ideals and a strong will to get justice. I have created a spiritual image of him not the physical one," he writes. His son Srirang says Sathe finds it tough to talk due to old age and illness. "In the sculpture, Gandhiji's face looks forward with greater firmness, full of resolve to break the fetters of British rule. The broad stole that is draped on his shoulders, and which covers his slender frame as seen by his followers, suggests the enormous form that his movement of civil disobedience is destined to assume in the near future," writes Sathe, who did diploma in modelling and sculpture in1948 and went on to win accolades in India and abroad. The Gandhi statue forms the central feature of the memorial, which will also have life-sized sculptures of 80 marchers, who, in 1930, had participated in the 240-mile march from Sabarmati Ashram to Dandi with Mahatma Gandhi to protest the imposition of tax on salt. These 80 pieces have already been readied by over 40 selected artists from across the globe in an event at IIT-B a year ago. The monument will be established on a 15-acre plot in Dandi. The ministry of culture is spending Rs64 crore on the monument of which Rs22 crore is for research and development. IIT-B has been entrusted with the task of concept design, coordination and implementation. CPWD will take care of the construction. The main memorial will have two stainless steel arms 70 metres in height with a salt crystal on top. They will be lit by solar panels with pyramid of light, the pathway will depict the Dandi March route through 24 spaces, representing 24 halts, and having visuals of the journey. It is expected to be ready by 2015-end. The monument was announced by the prime minister in 2005 on the 75th anniversary of the march. However, it didn't take off until 2011 due to various hurdles. 36Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Dandi MarchMinistry of CultureMahatma Gandhi

Savita R, a resident, says, “Our family has stayed away from crackers since the past five years. Even my children understand the amount of noise pollution it causes.” Another Thane resident, Shivangi Chavan says, “My six-year-old daughter has already said that she will not demand firecrackers this Diwali.” Shilpa Khare, another resident believes that attending several cultural programmes is a better idea instead of causing more noise and air pollution.

Now, BJP wants to make Thane, Palghar Cong-free Now, BJP wants to make Thane, Palghar Cong-free — By FPJ Bureau | Oct 21, 2014 12:03 am Thane : After making serious inroads into Shiv Sena bastion Thane and newly-created Palghar district, BJP is now eyeing upcoming local body elections in these two districts to make them “Congress-free”. “Now that we have wiped out Congress from Thane and Palghar districts, we must strive to make them totally free of Congress in forthcoming polls to zilla parishad, village panchayat, civic bodies and district banks,” said BJP national vice president Vinay Sahastrabuddhe. In just-held Assembly elections, results for which were declared yesterday, BJP pocketed 9 out of 24 seats in Thane and Palghar districts collectively, at the expense of its erstwhile ally Shiv Sena. Among prominent candidates, BJP’s Sanjay Kelkar defeated Ravindra Phatak of Shiv Sena in latter’s citadel of Thane while Manda Mhatre trounced NCP stalwart and former minister Ganesh Naik in his fiefdom of Navi Mumbai in Belapur seat. When asked about the NCP’s announcement to offer an “unconditional outside support” to BJP in the formation of government, Sahastrabuddhe said that senior party leaders will take a call. The newly-elected BJP legislators were felicitated on the occasion.          -PTI emailprint « Previous Article SKS Micro net soars 250% to Rs 57 cr Next Article » Chemical ind must seize the opportunity Tagged with: Congress Manda Mhatre Sahastrabuddhe Related Articles Congress welcomes fresh elections in Delhi Nov 04, 2014 12:50 pm MIM eyes civic polls Nov 03, 2014 12:11 am Letters to the editor Nov 01, 2014 12:00 am Congress, JMM break alliance in Jharkhand Oct 31, 2014 05:04 pm Leave a reply Cancel Your email address will not be published.

The prison has recently inaugurated a shop, backed by the State Bank of India, where products made by prisoners will be sold at a minimal cost. The shop, located outside the prison premises, will stock wooden items, textile materials and bakery products among others. Additional Director General (Prison), Meeran Borwankar, said, "All central prisons have such shops and this is the first ever shop in Thane. Convicts will make items that will be sold at a minimal price here. I urge the people to buy things from the shop as it will help the convicts hone their skill, apart from helping to rehabilitate them.” Thane’s Commissioner of Police, Vijay Kamble, said, “Looking at such amazing talent, at appears that the convicts have simply become prey to unfortunate incidents. If, based on their conduct, the ADG (prison) could lessen the punishment of convicts and set them free from jail, it will boost their self confidence and their talent could be appreciated elsewhere.” Jail superintendent, UT Pawar, further added, “Jail inmates get wages depending on the tasks that they do.

Thane-based developer asked to shell out double the booking amount Tuesday, 21 October 2014 - 5:35am IST | Agency: DNA Pranali Lotlikar 10Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit A Thane-based developer has been penlized for failing to hand over a house which a BEST employee had booked in 2012. The Thane district consumer dispute redressal forum has given the developer 60 days to hand over the booking amount of Rs2 lakh, as well as a compensation of the same amount towards the mental agony of the complainant. Failing to do so within the set time period would attract an additional 1 lakh penalty. As per complainant Tushar Jadhav, he had paid Rs2 lakh to the developer, Sanjay Gurav, on September 15, 2012. A few days after the agreement of sale was signed, Jadhav approached Gurav with the balance amount, in order to take possession of the house. Jadhav was left stumped when the developer informed him that he would pay back the booking amount and accordingly, issue him a cheque of Rs2 lakh. When the complainant tried to encash the cheque, it bounced owing to lack of funds. The developer's ignorant behaviour compelled the complainant to file a complaint at the forum. After going through the complainant's allegations, the forum asked the developer to file a response. However, after this didn't elicit any reply, the forum held the developer guilty and penalized him for his behaviour. 10Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Consumer Dispute Redressal Forumcompensation

2014-10-20Thane district finally gets two women MLAs - Times
Thane district finally gets two women MLAsThe author has posted comments on this articleSanjeev Shivadekar, TNN | Oct 21, 2014, 02.24AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4THANE: Women have finally got representation in the assembly from Thane district. Of the 18 newly-elected MLAs, two of them are women. BJP's Manda Mhatre won the assembly polls from Belapur constituency and NCP's Jyoti Kalani won the Ulhasnagar seat. In the last assembly, there was not a single woman representative in the entire district. "Now, it is the responsibility of the two female MLAs from the district to address women-related issues on a priority basis. They must stress on the 33% reservation for women in the state legislative assembly," said political analyst and an associate with the University of Mumbai, Aruna Pendse. In Thane, this year, 13 women candidates were in the fray for the assembly polls. Out of these, six were nominated by the political parties, while the others contested as Independents. Surprisingly, Shiv Sena is the only party which had not nominated a single woman candidate in Thane region for the 18 assembly seats. Congress had nominated two women candidates, while Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), BJP, NCP and Bahujan Samaj Party had fielded one candidate each in the district. However, political parties cutting across all party lines are on the same page when it comes to nominating female candidates for the assembly polls. "During the proceedings of the assembly session, MLAs do take up social issues of their constituencies and state. Nominating and ensuring that women are elected to the assembly is not enough to resolve their issues. It is more of a social issue. The society, along with the public representatives, state administration and law enforcing agency, must work together for the empowerment of women,'' a political leader said.

Even though Chinese lamps are lighter on the pocket, shops selling Diwali items are stacked up with rustic mud diyas, kandeels or lanterns made of jute, bamboo, cloth and paper, rangoli powder made with vegetables and parts of plants like haldi, kumkum, indigo, rice, etc. Such products are also selling like hot cakes. Store owners are not only keeping in mind the cleanliness of the city, but also making efforts to reduce noise and air pollution. This can be evident from the sky lanterns on display at numerous stores. These lanterns, apart from looking pretty when they dot the night skies, are also noiseless. "Firecrackers create a lot of noise and pollute the air. The leftover material is not safe, especially with children around. We sell sky lanterns and paper lanterns made from eco-friendly rice paper as a cheap substitute for firecrackers," said Robin David, founder of Mirabel store in Thane. "Our tagline is 'enabling eco-friendly and safe celebrations'. These lanterns are pollution-free, smog-free and noiseless. In addition, they present a far more magnificent sight compared to firecrackers that get burned out within seconds," David added. In addition to an array of candles, Thane's Bhakti Collections has a collection of eco-friendly rangolis and torans. "The torans are hand-made using cloth and embroidery. They are brought from Gujarat and Rajasthan. We also sell floating rangolis, which are reusable," said Naveen Shah, the owner. Kailesh Desale in his store, Heramb Arts, sells lanterns made entirely from eco-friendly material. "We use bamboo, jute, cloth and paper to make the lanterns. The colours are all water-colours and thus, eco-friendly. By creating items that don't harm the environment, we do our bit for the planet. When people use them, they do theirs," Desale said. Stalls selling eco-friendly rangoli colours are also present in plenty. "We make colours by crushing and drying vegetables and parts of plants like haldi, kumkum, indigo and rice. Diwali is celebrated to welcome Goddess Lakshmi in our home. We prefer to welcome the Goddess with natural designs made from natural colours," said Meena Bali, who owns a stall selling eco-friendly colours on Thane station road.

1.43% from Thane district hit NOTA this electionThe author has posted comments on this articleFreny Fernandes, TNN | Oct 21, 2014, 02.27AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4THANE: Despite having various options available for voters in Thane district this elections, the number of those opting for the NOTA (None Of The Above) has gone up in comparison to the Lok Sabha election. Around 43,086 people opted for NOTA during the assembly election as against 31,671 during the general election. To put it in simpler words, of the total 30,09,835 votes in the Thane district, 1.43% people voted for NOTA this time. The same for the Parliamentary elections was 1.14%. Interestingly, the number of people voting for NOTA in Kalyan Rural Assembly segment was as high as 7,835. A political observer opined that one reason for this high number could be the absence of a BJP candidate in the constituency. On the other hand, in Murbad assembly segment, there was hardly any difference between the votes bagged by the national party like Congress and NOTA. Congress candidate polled 3,401 voted as against the 3,394 voted recorded for NOTA. The NOTA option was introduced in the polling process in 2013 after the Supreme Court, in its verdict said that the voters have the right to reject the candidates contesting in their respective constituency. While the highest number of votes was observed in Kalyan Rural constituency, the lowest NOTA votes which was 612 was observed from Bhiwandi East, followed by 799 votes in the same category in Bhiwandi West.

2014-10-19Thane: Developer gets one year in jail for defying
Thane: Developer gets one year in jail for defying consumer forum's order Sunday, 19 October 2014 - 6:30am IST | Place: Thane | Agency: DNA Pranali Lotlikar 10Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Representational Image RNA Research & Archives The Thane district consumer dispute redressal forum recently sentenced a Vasai-based developer, who failed to abide by the forum's orders in 2008, to a year's imprisonment and a fine of Rs 10,000. It also stated that if the developer fails to pay the fine amount, the sentence will be extended by another six months. Patricia Vinekar, a Goregaon resident, had booked a flat in a building raised by Vasai-based developer, Bhimsen Sohanlal Bagga. However, as the builder had failed to hand over the possession of the flat, Patricia approached the Thane consumer forum in 2008. The developer failed to turn up and file a reply, due to which the forum ordered the builder to hand over the possession of the flat and to pay the complainant Rs 20,000 towards mental agony and Rs 5,000 as litigation costs. However, the developer appealed against the district forum's order before the state consumer commission, the national consumer commission and even before the apex court of India, but his plea was turned at every step. Finally, Patricia approached the Thane consumer forum pleading for harsher punishment for the developer for failing to abide with the orders. The forum, after going through the complainant's plea, asked the developer for his explanation on plea. The developer said that he had not received the entire cost of the flat and thus had not failed in providing services to its complainant. The forum, however, after going through the evidence, sentenced the developer to a year of simple imprisonment. 10Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit ThaneVasaiGoregaonSupreme Courtdeveloper

Butterfly garden at Ovla is one-of-its-kind in Thane Sunday, 19 October 2014 - 7:55am IST | Place: Thane | Agency: DNA Ankita G Menon 11Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit In the midst of the growing realty landscape of Ghodbunder Road is a two-acre plot which is calm and full of a variety of flowers and plants. Amongst all these, you will also find many butterflies fluttering around. On Sundays, this place is buzzing with activity as there are many who come to visit the garden and spot the variety of butterflies, especially children. This butterfly garden was set up by Rajendra Ovalekar, a resident of Owla village in Ghodbunder Road. The courtyard of his house has been turned into a butterfly garden, "This is my ancestral house and it was my inquisitiveness that led to this garden. I used to often notice pictures of butterflies in different colours and some very beautiful ones as well and was curious as to why we cannot have it in our vicinity. I started reading more on this and also visited Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) to get help. Through magazines and books on butterflies, I learnt that there are a type of nectar plants that attract butterflies and also, another variety of plants which they prefer to lay eggs on and I started buying them. I noticed the influx of butterflies slowly and gradually as the plants started growing," says Ovalekar. He was a school teacher, but it was his love for wild life that motivated him to make full use of the plot by converting it into a butterfly garden. Nectar plants like passion flowers, hibiscus and lantanas are planted and apart from this, he hangs some seasonal over ripe fruits amongst these plants to attract more species of butterflies as these are additional fodder for them. "October and November are the apt months to visit, there are around 26 species of butterflies, but during the trail around 12 species can be seen on a daily basis. In many places across the globe, they are kept in laboratories, but I wanted them to have a natural place to breed and live," adds Ovalekar. There are many schools from Thane that bring their students on environment studies trips and also, children from kindergarten visit the garden as part of their picnic. "For visitors, we have a 30-minute nature trail, where they are told about the life span of a butterfly. You can also spot eggs, cocoons and caterpillars here, if you are lucky you can also see the cocoon bursting. As the butterflies can be attacked by rats, birds and praying mantes, I have built wire cages around the nesting plants for precaution and also, to help them survive," he adds. As this is the best period to visit a butterfly garden, Ovalekar, who stays with his parents, calls Thanekars to visit the garden on weekends. 11Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit ButterflyThanebutterfly gardenGhodbunder Road

MNS left red-faced in Thane distThe author has posted comments on this articleSanjeev Shivadekar, TNN | Oct 20, 2014, 12.00AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4Thane: The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena suffered a devastating rout across Thane district with defeat in 13 of the 14 constituencies it contested in. Not too long ago, Raj Thackeray had won over the Marathi-speaking families, and was perceived as a real heir to Bal Thackeray. The stir in 2009 assembly polls had resulted in MNS securing a comfortable victory in Kalyan (rural) and the Kalyan (west). Five years later, MNS sitting MLAs Ramaesh Patil and Prakash Bhoir were defeated by the Sena and the BJP nominees respectively. Patil lost to Subhash Bhoir by a margin of over 44,000 votes. In Kalyan (west) constituency, Prakash Bhoir was pushed to a fourth place finish having polled just 18,359 votes, while the winner Narendra Pawar of BJP got 49,723 votes. The party's flip-flops on issues concerning the common man and the long hibernation of Thackeray cost the contestants dearly. Also, they spoke very little on development issues or their future plans.

2014-10-18Thane gears up for Diwali - Times of India
Thane gears up for DiwaliThe author has posted comments on this articleDebarati S Sen, TNN | Oct 18, 2014, 01.41PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4 There is that typical hard-to-miss buzz around the city again, thanks to the festive season. Thaneites have been getting ready for Diwali festivities since the past week or so. The fact is that the rush and excitement is almost palpable, and that is what makes our city so vibrant. People are flocking to the traditional exhibitions - Gaondevi maidan, Central Maidan, Ghantali ground - other local markets and of course Thane's many malls, for their festive shopping. Here are a few points about the Diwali preparations here... Giving your home a makeover Festivals in our country are usually about traditional pujas, food, new clothes, new furniture, furnishings and sometimes even new homes. There are sales and discounts in all furniture and home furnishing shops that offer some of the latest option of decor. Of course, not everyone is decorating a new home, there are people who simply refurbish their houses during Diwali. A fresh coat of paint for the house, a single wall decorated with textured wallpaper, or just a change of curtains and cushions can mean a lot. Bright colours that spread cheer and spell festivity are in. Chandeliers and fancy lights are also very much in demand. Homes get a thorough clean-up Diwali seems incomplete without the 'Diwali-safai'. All homes get a thorough clean-up before the festival. Household helps along with almost all the members of the family participate in this process in some way or the other. There is dusting, sweeping, wiping and washing involved. It is believed that during the Laxmi Puja, the Goddess of wealth and prosperity enters homes only if they are spick and span. Lantern and Kandeel shopping in thane Thane has the right balance of malls and roadside stalls. And during Diwali, everyone prefers to shop for the traditional Diwali decor items only from street-side shops and makeshift stalls that are set up especially for this occasion. Every evening crowds surge through the streets picking up their favourite things. Sweets and savories for Diwali Food and festivals go hand in hand and Diwali is incomplete without the traditional sweets and yummy faral. For many Thaneites, it is an eager wait for Diwali, just to get a chance to gorge on a variety of lip-smacking goodies. Maharashtrian households and others also, have already begun making faral at home - an integral part of celebrating Diwali. Besan and rava laddoos, chakli, chewda, shankar pali and karanji are some of the items that women make at home. Firecrackers and the festival of lights With the rise in the popularity of the 'silent Diwali' and the pollution-free festival of lights, Thane markets have seen a dip in the sales of loud firecrackers. Sparklers remain a favourite for most as many households traditionally believe that lighting one during the festive season wards off evils and is a good omen or 'shagun' for the beginning of the year. People are also opting for crackers that though expensive, do not create sound or air pollution. Rangoli and diya shopping Rangoli and diyas are an integral part of Diwali celebration. Though some Thaneites are opting for the ready-made rangolis, there are many who go for the traditional rice powder ones that are available in the markets everywhere these days. Intricately designed diyas in a variety of shapes and sizes still maintain their charm and are preffered over the electric lamps. The good-old earthen diyas look warm and welcoming at the doorstep of your home. Article continuesStay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps.

Bangles, shells and suparis for Rangolis in Thane homesThe author has posted comments on this articleDebarati S Sen, TNN | Oct 18, 2014, 01.37PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4 Who says rangolis that use only rice powder can be traditional? Thane residents are using many different mediums for creating rangolis that are not just artistic but are also very in touch with traditions. Sharmila Iyer who holds different hobby classes on art and craft near Manpada, says that this is a marked trend in the city, "There are women who are doing many different kinds of creative things with rangolis. The portrait rangolis are like actual works of art." Anu Marawar, a resident of Neelkanth Greens, Ghodbunder Road, who has been making rangolis with a variety of different things, says that it is so popular that there are times when she has been invited by her friends and relatives to their homes to do rangolis. She says, "I make rangolis with bangles, supari, rice, lentils, flowers and many more ingredients, and yet make sure that there is something that is very cultural and traditional about it." Anu demonstrated two different kinds of rangolis that one can make at home by following the steps given. Rice Kalash Rangoli This rice kalash rangoli is a traditional one that was inspired by the Maharashtrian custom of Shagun ki Oti, says Anu. "The rice, red blouse piece, green bangles, coconut (using wheat) haldi are all items that are used for the shagun," she adds. You will need: Green bangles Rice Supari Khadi haldi Wheat Vatana Red blouse piece or cloth Method: First of all make the base with rice as shown in picture 1. Then place the bangles, the khadi haldi, supari and blouse piece. Arrange the vatana outlining the rice. Now make a red and a green line with rangoli powder. Make the coconut with wheat and then make the leaves with green rangoli. Shell Rangoli This simple, not a very traditional rangoli, can brighten up your home in a beautiful manner. You will need: A cup of dark coloured rangoli powder Around 30 similar sized oyster shells A cup of almond shells A bowl of water Fresh flowers A tea strainer Four round mirrors of one inch diameter Method: First of all make the base of your design by sprinkling rangoli evenly in a circle. Then place a bowl of water with flowers floating on top, in the centre of your coloured rangoli circle. Take the shells and place them on the circumference of the coloured circle. Now place four round mirrors and surround them with almond shells. Place the smaller round mirrors between the almond-shell flowers.

Thane men get ready to dress up for the festive seasonThe author has posted comments on this articleDebarati S Sen, TNN | Oct 18, 2014, 01.34PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4 THANE: When it comes to festive style, men in Thane prefer to go all traditional. With Diwali and the wedding season just round the corner, the sale of menswear options in the city shops has picked up and many are opting for different kinds of ethnic clothes and shoes like the Jodhpuri Bandhgala, Pathani suits, kurtas, churidars and Kolhapuri chappals. Ashwin Dinde a marketing professional from Vasant Vihar says, "This year I will be attending the puja at home during Diwali. I have planned to wear clothes that are very traditional - I have bought a Jodhpuri bandhgala and have also purchased matching morjiris with it." Despite the oppressive October heat Dinde is all set to show off this festive season. However, 24-year-old Maitreya Johari from Naupada, says that he likes to wear cotton and Khadi only during Diwali. "On the Laxmi Puja day and also on Bhaobeej, I wear my heavier kurtas that have embroidery otherwise I usually wear very traditional clothes like dhoti and Kurta. We are a group of friends and all of us like to dress up in a similar manner during the festival." Johari adds that sometimes they just go casual with a kurta that is paired with jeans. Sagar Dixit, a web analyst, from Bhaskar Colony has done his Diwali shopping online this year. "Me and my 20-year-old brother will be wearing Rajasthani Kurtas and dhotis this festive season. They are cotton kurtas with simple embroidery on them. While we bought our clothes online, my parents are going shopping in Thane markets. They do not believe in buying clothes on the computer." The fact that the wedding season is approaching is another reason for an increase the sale of traditional outfits for men. Aadrita Athavle from Kasarvadavli says, "We have a family wedding to attend this month-end and that is the reason why we have been on a shopping-spree for the last few days. My husband and my father-in-law have bought traditional bandhgalas. They will also be wearing the same for Diwali." Article continuesStay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps.

Society claims eight people rode car meant for four. Four members of a family landed in hospital after the elevator in which they were travelling came crashing down from the fourth floor of their six-storeyed society in Thane, early on Thursday. Of the injured, three live in Kalina and had come to Thane to cast their votes in the assembly elections held on October 15. While the police have registered a case of negligence against unknown person/s, the secretary of Gulmohar Hill Garden society at Ghodbunder Road has blamed the Chandnani family for overloading the lift and causing the accident. According to the family, the accident happened as the elevator's emergency brakes failed to work. Kishan Chandnani, 77, his son Manoj, 48, and daughter-in-law Neha, 44, were staying in Chandnani's other son Anand's residence and were setting out for their Kalina residence, accompanied by Anand's son Ashwin, wife Jaya and a two-year-old girl when disaster struck. "There were six people in the lift, including myself. Before I could press the button for the ground floor, the lift started falling. It gained speed and crashed when it reached the ground floor. Everyone was badly injured and could hardly stand. As I had received only minor injuries and knew a bit about the elevator's mechanism, I tried opening the doors. People outside came to our rescue and tried to pull the door open, but it was stuck. I removed a small metallic strip from the door and the door gave. I came out first and pulled the others out. Other residents called the ambulance and got us all admitted in Jupiter Hospital," said Ashwin, 23, who works in a BPO. He added, "My aunt suffered a nasal fracture while my uncle and grandfather suffered multiple fractures in their legs, hip and ankles. My aunt was badly injured as she was holding the baby, and tried saving her. She held the child tightly and kept her safe even after the fall. Her hip and both her legs were fractured, and will have to undergo surgery." As the elevator came crashing down, the mirror fitted inside started to fall off. Luckily, Ashwin's father spotted this and held it in place, preventing the glass from breaking before the falling elevator car reached the ground floor. While Ashwin and his father have been discharged from hospital and the infant was unhurt, the other three are said to be critical and awaiting surgery. Roshan Naik, a third-floor resident, said, "I was sleeping when Ashwin called me. I rushed downstairs immediately and saw most of the family on the floor, trying to get out of the elevator. We pulled them out, called an ambulance and admitted them to hospital. It was a near-fatal accident, and they are lucky to be alive." Society secretary Vijay Mandgaokar claimed the family was at fault. "The elevator's carrying capacity is only four people, but there were eight people inside at the time of the accident. There is nothing wrong with the lift, and the emergency brakes are in place. It was the solely the family's fault," he said. Senior PI Sushil Shinde of Kapurbawdi police station said, "We have taken down an accident report, and investigations are on. We have issued a notice to the society chairman and secretary, and replies are awaited. We are looking for the elevator company and its contractor, who are responsible for its maintenance. An FIR will be registered soon."

Shashikant Kothekar and Megha Pol , Hindustan Times  Thane, October 16, 2014 First Published: 20:37 IST(16/10/2014) | Last Updated: 21:01 IST(16/10/2014) Email print Font Size A | A+ | A- Subscribe Breaking News Alert Comments The voter turnout in Thane district has risen this election, up from 49% in 2009 to 50.70% on Wednesday. The highest turnout was recorded in the Shahpur and Thane City constituencies, which averaged 57% each. The lowest voter turnout was in Ulhasnagar, where barely 36.32% of registered voters made it to the booths. Of the 18 assembly constituencies in Thane district, the Shiv Sena currently holds six, the BJP three, the NCP five and the MNS two; one seat each was claimed by an Independent and the Samajwadi Party, in the last state election. The high turnout is expected to benefit the Shiv Sena, since this has been a traditional stronghold for the party. Political analysts say the party could expect to raise its tally from six to eight. “There may be a major setback for the NCP. Kisan Kathore from Murbad constituency defected to the BJP, while Shiv Sena candidate Vijay Nahata [a former IAS officer] has put up a tough fight against NCP leader and former state cabinet minister Ganesh Naik in Belapur,” said senior journalist S Ramkrishnan. Naik is one of two former NCP Cabinet ministers in the fray this time around, the other being Jitendra Awhad, standing from the Kalwa-Mumbra constituency. Areas where the NCP could gain include Kalwa-Mumbra and Bhiwandi West. In the latter, Abdul Rashid Tahir — who won on a Samajwadi Party ticket in 2009 — is now contesting on an NCP ticket. And i n Kalwa- Mumbra, Awhad i s contesting in a minority-dominated constituency where the NCP won with a margin of 15,000 votes in 2009. It could be seen as an encouraging sign for the party that the turnout here was 46.20%. The Shiv Sena, meanwhile, has provided formidable opponents to the MNS candidates in Kalyan West and Kalyan Rural, where the latter had won both seats in 2009, and to the NCP’s Sandeep Naik, son of Ganesh Naik, who is contesting from Airoli.

Peaceful and orderly polls in Thane, 54% voters step out to cast their voteThe author has posted comments on this articleSanjeev Shivadekar, TNN | Oct 16, 2014, 10.27PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4Thane: Nearly three weeks of high-pitch rhetoric and mudslinging, the elections to the 18 assembly seats in Thane district was peaceful and orderly with an estimated 54 per cent of the voters casting their ballot on Wednesday. Long and peaceful queues were formed in select booths in Thane, Mumbra-Kalwa, Ovala-Majiwada and the Korpi-Panchpakhadi assembly segments where the voter turn-out recorded up till 5 pm was 54 per cent, 47 per cent, 51 per cent and 52 per cent respectively. Compared with the high enthusiasm of the voters during the Lok Sabha polls in April, the political parties here were faced with the difficult situation as the voter turn-out was not up to their expectations. The biggest surprise was dismal presence of the young voters across the constituency, much unlike the first-time voter groups and collegians who flocked the booths to ink their index finger and update on their social networking sites. The five-way split is said to have resulted in confusion among the young voters who preferred to stay away from the poll booth, while those who cast their ballot are believed to have voted for the party overlooking the candidate. "The break-up of the alliance was already very confusing and we did not now how to judge the candidates. Also some candidates shifted loyalties on the last day of nominations. We voted for the party ignoring the nominee,'' said Prathamesh Apte a Thane collegian. Article continuesStay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps.

Volunteers take to tech to find voters’ polling booths in ThaneThe author has posted comments on this articleFreny Fernandes, TNN | Oct 16, 2014, 10.32PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4Thane: Flipping through sheets of papers to locate a particular booth has become passe. This time, party workers got tech savvy and decided to use laptops installed with area specific voter management applications and wireless phones to help voters locate their polling booth. NCP men from Mumbra-Kalwa constituency and Shiv Sena activists in Thane city were seen solving queries raised by voters at a click of a mouse. The voter data software has all the information about the voters and this helped party workers to solve any problems. Kamini Naik (41) found her polling booth within seconds as the party worker in her area just fed in her name and got all the relevant information pertaining to her centre. ''I recently shifted to Thane and did not know where my polling booth was located. The volunteers who were present at every nook and corner of the street asked me for my name and building. Within seconds they directed me to my designated booth,'' she said. The voter management software's, created by various companies, were a major help for residents. Zeenat Shaikh, who handled one such tech savvy booth in Mumbra, said, ''We had 60 laptops in which all the information about each and every resident of Mumbra was feed. We were all trained to use the software at an NCP office just before the elections. This software eased a lot of trouble for voters.'' Many volunteers also helped residents over the phone and through text messages. Helpline numbers were given to residents who could get in touch with a volunteer if they faced any problem.

Rural areas witness highest voter turnout in Thane distThe author has posted comments on this articleSanjeev Shivadekar, TNN | Oct 17, 2014, 02.47AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4THANE: This time, Thane district witnessed a marginal rise in the voter turnout as compared to the general elections that was held in April. The voting per cent for the 18 assembly seats in the district was recorded at 50.56% as against 49.2% during the parliamentary elections. Even though the election commission conducted a voters' awareness drive during which they had appealed to citizens to come out in large numbers and exercise their right, the urban pockets received a lukewarm response. In Thane, the voter turnout in the urban constituencies was low in areas like Khopri-Panchpakhadi and Ovala-Majiwada. While in Navi Mumbai, Airoli and Belapur received a low turnout. ''The voting per cent during the Lok Sabha and assembly elections is almost the same. While rural areas witnessed a steady rise in figures, the most alarming figures was received from urban areas where the percentage was just 50,'' said a political observer. However, the common thing between both the elections was that the highest turnout of voters was received in rural areas of Thane district. According to the election department records, the highest poll per cent was recorded at Bhiwandi rural during both the elections. While during the assembly polls the figure stood at 66.24%, the numbers recorded during the parliamentary elections was 65.94%. The lowest voter turnout was recorded at Ulhasnagar with just 38.22%. Even the district election commission officials expressed their helplessness to improve the figures. ''We did our best to reach out to maximum voters. But there was no improvement,'' the official said. Article continuesStay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps. Click here to download it for your device.

AFP While politicians are anxiously awaiting the events of October 15 as Maharashtra votes in the state assembly elections, Thane residents got off to a lazy start to casting their ballot as the voter turnout registered for the entire district in the first two hours was a paltry 5.78%. Despite all the promotions, advertisements and canvassing done during election campaigning, polling in Thane started at 7.00 am on a sleepy note. "Until 9.00 am, the polling percentage was 5.78% for the entire district," said Madhavi Sardeshmukh, the deputy district electoral officer. In the four constituencies of Thane, voter turnout was around just 6% from 7.00 am to 9.00 am. Mumbra-Kalwa registered 6.41%, Kopri-Pachpakhadi had 6.07%, Ovala-Majiwada had 6.06%, and Thane city registered 6.23%. "It is strange that despite today being a government holiday the voter turnout was so low. Maybe people will wake up late and come according to their convenience by the afternoon," said a polling officer. 18Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Web ExclusivespecialMaharashtra Elections 2014assembly electionsMumbaiThanevoter turnoutcampaigningvotingpolling

Same party reign in three most sensitive constituencies in ThaneThe author has posted comments on this articleSanjeev Shivadekar, TNN | Oct 15, 2014, 10.32PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4Thane: The Mumbra-Kalwa assembly segment in Thane and Airoli and Belapur seats in Navi Mumbai has the highest number of critical polling stations. Interestingly, all the three seats are represented by the NCP, in fact, two of whom are cabinet ministers in the DF regime. Also, the Kopri-Pachpakhadi assembly seat in Thane city is considered to be a safe poll zone with least number of critical polling stations. Kalwa-Mumbra assembly segment is dominated by Hindu and Muslim population, hence every election many booths in this constituency is tagged as critical. But this time, with the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) in fray the constituency is being closely watched not only by the administration, but also by the political parties and even voters across the state. A total of 17 candidates are contesting election from the Kalwa-Mumbra out of which nine are Muslim candidates. In 2009, seven Muslim candidates had tried their luck form the same constituency. Similarly, the administration has incorporated many booths of Navi Mumbai in the critical polling station as Naik clan completely controls the satellite township. Medical education minister Jitendra Awahd (NCP) represents Mumbra-Kalwa assembly seat. While state excise minister Ganesh Naik (NCP) is sitting MLA from Belapur and his son younger Sandeep (NCP) too is MLA from the Airoli assembly seat. Similarly, for the administration sitting Shiv Sena MLA—Ekanth Shinde's constituency Kopri-Pachpakhadi seems to be most safe for the polls. Mumbra-Kalwa has 58 critical polling booths in the assembly constituency and equal number of booths is marked as critical in the Airoli assembly seat. Belapur has 55 critical polling stations.

RTO constable, civic clerk fall ill during poll duty in ThaneThe author has posted comments on this articleManoj Badgeri | Oct 15, 2014, 11.23PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4THANE: A constable with the Thane RTO and a clerk with the Ulhasnagar civic body were hospitalized after they fell ill while on poll duty on Wednesday. Around noon, constable Maruti Jadhav (50) fell unconscious inside a polling booth in the Thane assembly constituency. He was initially taken to the Thane civil hospital, but later shifted to Jupiter Hospital. His condition is now stable. In the second incident, Naresh Jeswani (53), a civic clerk who was deputed as a polling officer at Abdullah Patel High School in Mumbra, complained of uneasiness around 9.30am. He told his colleagues that he had undergone a stomach operation three months ago and was feeling unwell. They rushed him to Kalwa medical hospital, where doctors treated him and suggested he be relieved from further duty. Jeswani was then escorted to his Ulhasnagar home. Jeswani told TOI that the extensive poll-related work in the last few days, along with the October heat, may have taken a toll on his health. "I underwent a stomach operation three months ago and was on a month-long post-surgery leave. I took up the poll duty as I presumed that I had fully recovered and would be able to work like before. However, I were involved in several poll-related activities since Tuesday afternoon, leaving me exhausted. I felt uneasy on Wednesday and was immediately given medical attention. Now, I am well," Jeswani said. A reliever was immediately deployed at the polling booth to ensure work wasn't affected. Article continuesStay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps.

A popular mall in Thane has hit upon a novel idea to solve the problem of clients not finding autorickshaws easily once they step out of the shopping centre. They are offering auto drivers free groceries worth Rs 2,000 for every 60 customers they ferry home a month. According to a Viviana Mall spokesperson, for several months they had been receiving complaints from customers who faced problems in getting autos outside the mall, and of drivers who refused to ply to certain destinations. After a meeting with local auto unions, the mall management finally hit upon a scheme, which they launched last Friday. Senior Vice President (Mall Operations) Sunil Shroff told Mirror, "We have a dedicated auto stand, and every auto driver entering the queue gets his number noted. As soon as he picks up a passenger, he is given a coupon which is stamped. As per our scheme, in a month if an auto driver collects a minimum of 60 coupons, he will be offered groceries worth Rs 2,000." In less than five days, the scheme has not only benefitted passengers and auto drivers but has also reduced traffic congestion outside the mall. "The scheme has been launched as a pilot project for three months, and will be extended after checking the response," Shroff said. "Traffic officials have also appreciated the scheme, as it has led to discipline and order on the road in front of the mall." "We often visit this mall and getting an auto used to be impossible, especially for a short distance," said Thane resident Jay Patil. "But since this scheme began, there are autos waiting in a queue and no more chaos outside the mall." Auto driver Sanjay Soni has already managed to collect eight coupons. "It's a good offer, because of which many drivers will now ensure they make a couple of trips to the mall each day. However, we don't know how long they will keep up the offer... it could be just a Diwali gimmick." A transport activist said, "The offer is a fine gesture but amounts to offering a bribe to auto drivers to pick up passengers. It's their job after all, and for which they charge a fare."
2014-10-15EVMs with embossed Braille script in Thane - Times
EVMs with embossed Braille script in ThaneThe author has posted comments on this articleManoj Badgeri, TNN | Oct 15, 2014, 05.35AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4MUMBAI: All the new EVMs in Thane will this time have information embossed on them in Braille, making the process easier for the visually impaired voters. Activists have welcomed the move but asked for audio assistance as well. "All the EVMs used in Thane district for this election have the information embossed on them. This is for the first time we are using them," said Madhavi Sardeshmukh, deputy collector of Thane. The new EVMs from Electronics Corporation of India Ltd serve dual purpose, catering to the general public as well as those with visual impairment. These machines have numbers 1-15 on the ballot unit embossed in Braille. When a visually challenged voter arrived, he would be given information on the numbers and the corresponding names against them on an EVM after which s/he could proceed to cast his vote, explained an official. In places where the number of candidates is more than 15, officials will put stickers after masking the existing embossed numbers. Visually impaired voters and their escorts will be told about the change. The earlier units used stickers in Braille and were prone to damage. But voters said they could benefit if audio assistance was given. "The process could be much faster and easier had they been provide with audio assistance. A headphone could be given to them for privacy," said Mahesh Dodke, office bearer of an association for the visually challenged.

Thane police reunite six more rescued kids with parentsBy Nazia SayedNazia Sayed, Mumbai Mirror | Oct 13, 2014, 08.55 AM ISTTweetShare on Linkedin CommentsMoreGoogle BookmarksNewsvineLive BookmarksTechnoratiYahoo BookmarksBlogmarksDel.icio.usApnaCircleEmail this articlePrint this articleAReduce font sizeAIncrease font sizecommentsTweetShare MoreEmail this articlePrint this articleAReduce font sizeAIncrease font sizeURL copied to clipboardGoogle BookmarksNewsvineLive BookmarksTechnoratiYahoo BookmarksBlogmarksDel.icio.usApnaCircleMy Saved articlesRELATEDThe Thane police have reunited six more parents with children rescued from human trafficking networks. Mumbai Mirror had reported on Saturday that a Children Protection Unit created by the department had traced 1,300 vanished kids over the past three months and returned 1,231 of these to their families. On Saturday, as Mirror interviewed all six families, the complexities inherent in child trafficking became apparent: one of the parents, Mohammad Khan, who made his way to Mumbai from as far as Nepal, admitted that his son Mehraj, 12, had deliberately been dispatched to the city. "I will not lie to the cops. It was me who sent him here to work," Khan, who is 54, said. "These people have no other job but to arrest our kids and send them to the children's home. I have four more kids to feed. From where will I get the money? There were only two options left for me: either I end my life or send my son to work. My brother helped him get a job in Mumbai. He used to send me Rs 3,500 per month. Now, thanks to these people, I have to take him home." However, the other parents, some of whom were aware their children had run away to Mumbai to find employment, weren't as harsh in their reaction to the Thane police's rescue efforts. Sundari Yadav's son Rajesh, a 16-year-old boy from Basti in Uttar Pradesh, a town 1,500 km from Mumbai, came to the city hoping his idol Salman Khan would snatch him out of financial worries. "His father died seven years ago and I worked on construction sites to support the family. My son helped out. But I fell ill and he was left to manage finances by himself," she said. Three months ago, Rajesh left for Mumbai. "He could not bear the thought of leaving his ailing mother uncared for," said the 55-year-old. "I cried every day because I thought he was dead." Mahtav Khan, 60, a resident of Basti, said his wife died nearly 14 years ago and that he had raised three children on his own. "My elder son Sameer was tired of living in poverty and wanted to earn money," Khan told Mirror. "He ran away without informing anyone about four months ago. I looked for him everywhere but to no use. After a month he called me and said he was working in a restaurant in Mumbai and was earning Rs 2,500 per month. He even sent me Rs 4,000 through a friend. We are extremely poor people and my greed got better of me. I needed the money so I did not ask him to come back." When the Child Protection Unit officers called to inform him that his 15-year-old son had been traced, Khan set off towards Mumbai. "I have come here to take him home," he said. Jamal Pathan, 40, a resident of Hussainpur in UP, about 1,400 km from Mumbai, said his son Zubair, 11, had gone missing nearly four months ago. "He went out with friends. He had no money with him," Pathan recalled. "After he went missing he never called back. I had no idea where he was. His three brothers and two sisters searched for him every day." Although 41-year-old Chintaram Jadhav's son, Savitaram, went missing two months ago, the farmer from Basti did not file a missing person report. He told this reporter that he knew the 17-year-old had let home in search of a job. "I have three young daughters who have to be married off," he said. "I was finding it difficult to manage the expenses. My son helped me on the farm, but it wasn't nearly enough. That's why he left for Mumbai."

PM Modi certainly thinks so Oct 12, 2014 15:00 IST #BJP   #Coalition government   #Congress   #India   #Maharashtra Assembly Elections 2014   #MNS   #Narendra Modi   #NCP   #PoliticalDecoder   #Raj Thackeray   #Shiv Sena   #Uddhav Thackeray  By Jai MrugDay before the split with the Shiv Sena, the BJP had insisted that it needed 135 seats at the minimum. With the smaller allies in the Mahayuti likely to settle for nothing less than 18, at best 14, the stage was set for the Sena to be restricted to 135 or eventually 139.That would have ensured a level playing field between the Sena and the BJP as well as created an opportunity for the BJP to use its traditionally higher strike rate to take a shot a chief ministership. Since the first assembly election alliance of the Sena and BJP in 1990, BJP has performed better than the former in terms of strike rate.Study shows Congress will be the biggest loser. ReutersIn the 1990 assembly election the BJP’s strike rate was 40% while that of the Sena was a mere 28.64%. The gap was thus 11.36%. In the 2009 election the gap was close to 11.16% after two decades of narrowing down.A logical corollary of this theory would be that the BJP would for sure gain more seats with a better strike or seats closer to the Sena. Moreover simply contesting a larger number of seats would help increase the BJP’s vote share.How BJP is gathering votes in its first time seats. Figures sourced from VotersmoodIn addition to this increased vote share if the BJP could leverage the upwardly mobile neo middle class to its advantage then it could exploit the first past the post system and get past the mark in many seats.Votersmood Research carried out a survey of randomly selected respondents following the right hand rule across the city of Mumbai and its satellite areas. A total of 1100 samples were covered in this.Apart from this, a study was also carried out across seats where the BJP had not contested earlier. The results of the study threw up interesting results.These are 56 seats that cover the districts of Mumbai Subuarban, Mumbai City and Thane ( which includes the city of Thane, and Navi Mumbai) There are no losers in the BJP-Sena split. Ironically, both the Sena and the BJP gain. The Sena gains due to a consolidation of its supporters behind it.In the 2009 assembly election, the MNS polled 20% of the votes in this region. The MNS is now down 5% to 15% in this region. The Sena on the other hand sees a growth in its vote share from 19.75% to 23.75%.A section of the study focussed on seats that the BJP did not contest before. We assessed where the BJP’s vote share had come from in such seats. The BJP sees a huge surge of votes coming equally from the Sena and the Congress.Its vote share in this region rises from a base of 10.5% to 18.5%. This increase comes equally from the Sena and the Congress. There are two explanations to where this new found base of the BJP comes from.The coming of voters from the Congress explains partially the payoff of the BJP’s gamble. Many of these would have been traditional BJP supporters who might not have voted the BJP for so many years because of the Sena alliance and now see an opportunity to support the BJP again.The other reason could be the BJP emerging as the first port of calling for anti-incumbent voters who have left the Congress and want to go elsewhere. In the larger picture the Sena, while losing 11% of its voters to the BJP, gains from other parties like the MNS and the Congress and registers an overall gain of 4% in its vote share.The split therefore leaves the Congress then as the biggest loser as it loses anti incumbent votes to the BJP, Sena while also losing voters to BJP in the seats where the BJP earlier did not have candidates, and many of the traditional supporters of the BJP ended up voting for the Congress.The Congress could thus see a huge swing of 7 % away from itself, reducing it to a bare minimal 14% in this region. Does that mean that the Congress may not win any seats. Quite to the contrary, the five way fight in many seats will leave winners with vote shares often in their early twenties. Moreover this vote share is likely to be highly skewed in its distribution across seats.This election will see Mumbai being transformed into some sort of Jharkhand where winners are often close to forfeiting their deposits.more in PoliticsUnion Cabinet dissolves Delhi Assembly, polls likely early next yearLIVE Delhi: BJP is riding on politics of hatred, alleges Arvind KejriwalBJP has vitiated atmosphere of UP: Akhileshlatest postsOdisha chit fund scam: CBI arrests BJD MP, two former MLAsWorld Trade Center reopens in New York 13 years after 9/11 attacksThis is what Aamir did on spotting a fat man's wedgie, PK team thinks it's hilarious also seeNeedless fuss over NCP's offer Will the BJP repeat what it did in Delhi?BJP will form govt in Maharashtra even without majority, says RudyBreak up or no break up Will 'take Sena along' when forming govt, says BJPHere's BJP's unofficial timetable to take power in Maha assemblyrelated videosWe were humiliated by BJP, will not attend Fadnavis' swearing-in: Shiv SenaGandhi would be incomplete without Sardar Patel: PM Modi at 'Run for Unity' Most Recent Video LG Najeeb Jung recommends the dissolution of Delhi Assembly Robert Vadra goes to KBC, attacks Amitabh Bachchan when asked difficult questions NCP offers outside support to Anti Corruption Bureau AAP to move SC against SC after SC praises LG’s decision to consult all parties for govt formation in Delhi With only 63 MLAs, Shiv Sena looking for allies to fill up large number of ministries demanded by it from BJP Modi sends Diwali gifts to his acquaintances, Smriti Irani receives degree from an Australian University NCP offers unconditional support to winners of next 5 elections in Maharashtra site indexAbout FirstpostNewsletterRSSTwitterFacebookVerticalsFront PageIndiaPoliticsWorldBusinessLifeBollywoodSportsTechPlusNew DelhiMumbaiPhotosFP ExclusivesCartoonsVideo RoomeBooksBudget 2014WeatherOthersSample Papers OnlineBusiness Technology NewsMTV IndiaOnline Shopping in IndiaThink IndiaLive Election Results 2014ToolsRSS FeedsNEWSLETTERGet Handpicked top news right to your email SubscribeCopyright © 2014 Firstpost - All rights reserved Terms of use Privacy

Written by Amruta Lakhe | Mumbai | Posted: October 14, 2014 12:49 am The lavishly decorated Banquet Hall, a gallery at Rashtrapati Bhavan, will have a new addition to the rows of beautiful Presidential portraits that adorn its walls. A 3×4 foot painting of a smiling President Pranab Mukherjee by Mumbai-based artist Vasudeo Kamath, which hangs in the porch now, will be moved to this prestigious space. The portrait was commissioned in May this year. The veteran artist was approached by a special committee of art experts, gallerists and senior artists from across the country. “I was told they had shortlisted a few artists and I felt honoured that I was among them. I was flown to Delhi later in May to finalise the details of the portrait with the President,” says the 58-year-old artist, who could not talk about the work until a couple of days ago. Kamath admits to feeling nervous before the meeting with Mukherjee, but says the President made him feel at ease with his knowledge about the art world. “He spoke to me about a museum he recently inaugurated at Rashtrapati Bhavan and also asked me in detail about my previous pieces. I felt that he was genuinely interested in my work and he also spoke about the need for art preservation in the country,” says the Thane-based artist. The painting shows Mukherjee sitting on a lemon yellow armchair in the library — his favourite room in the building — wearing a dark brown full-sleeved safari suit. “Unfortunately, the President’s busy schedule did not permit an entire live painting session. Instead, I took photographs of the President from different angles and used them as reference while I completed the portrait from my studio in Thane.” The painting was completed in a week during which Kamath kept the President’s office updated with photos of the work in progress. “When the painting was complete, I met the President who commented on how life-like it was,” says Kamath, who won the Draper Grand Prize by the prestigious Portrait Society of America for his work, My Wife, in 2006. A tradition started during colonial times, the Rashtrapati Bhavan displays portraits of viceroys and British royalty at its Marble Hall. Kamath’s work in the Banquet Hall will now hang next to those by legendary artists such as Sanjay Bhattacharya, Atul Bose, Svetoslav Roerich, Bikash Bhattacharjee and Ghulam Rasool Santosh, among others, who have painted portraits of the Presidents of Independent India. “It is an honour for any artist. The gallery has some iconic works on our great Presidents and I consider myself privileged to be included among these names,” says the artist who graduated from JJ School of Art, Mumbai, in 1977. Apart from portraiture, he works in landscapes, sketches and has recently begun dabbling in conceptual art. This is not his first piece for a government dignitary. In 2009, the artist gifted former President Pratibha Patil a portrait of her. amruta.lakhe@expressindia.com Comments

2014-10-13Thane voters receive letter from Bal Thackeray - H
Thane voters receive letter from Bal Thackeray Shashikant Kothekar Shashikant Kothekar Shashikant Kothekar, Hindustan Times  Thane, October 14, 2014 First Published: 00:29 IST(14/10/2014) | Last Updated: 00:33 IST(14/10/2014) Email print Font Size A | A+ | A- Subscribe Breaking News Alert Comments For Shiv Sena workers, the late Bal Thackeray still has the final word. Recently, television advertisements showed him appealing to the people of Maharashtra to vote for the party he created. Now, in Thane City, many residents were surprised to receive an inland letter signed by Thackeray. The Shiv Sena’s Thane unit has sent the letters to all voters there and some have even been delivered personally to people's homes. The letter reads as follows, “At one time I used to talk to you standing in front of you. The Adarsh scam, toll issue, suicides of farmers… these issues were still pending. At present I am not with you. I have seen a trailer of success during the Lok Sabha elections. Now, I would like to see a full majority saffron movie.” The letter doesn’t mention the BJP at all and ends by appealing to voters to elect the Shiv Sena. “Balasaheb always had a soft corner for Thane.

Cong netas conspicuous by absence in ThaneThe author has posted comments on this articleManoj Badgeri, TNN | Oct 13, 2014, 12.00AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4Thane: Thane has failed to figure in the campaign itinerary of the Congress top leadership, as the party candidates are left to hold the fort by themselves in the absence of star campaigners. At a time when senior leaders like Narendra Modi, Sharad Pawar, Uddhav Thackeray and Raj Thackery have addressed public meetings to woo the Thane voters, the Congress leadership is conspicuous by its absence in the city. Except for one meeting convened by former Union minister Ghulam Nabi Azad in Mumbra on Friday, no major Congress national leader was seen in the city in the last few days. While former chief minister Prithviraj Chavan cancelled his plans last week, he also chose Kalyan over Thane on Sunday evening and later attended a meeting in Mira road, said MPCC. Observers say absence of major Congress faces could send across a wrong message. Congress said it was banking on the network and goodwill of its local leaders. A party worker said most leaders were busy in their respective constituencies. Article continuesStay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps.

Thane rally – October 15 will purify Maharashtra, says Modi Niticentral Staff | Oct 12, 2014 #InSpotlight Narendra Modi calls for a Congress-NCP-mukt Maharashtra. Taking Congress and NCP to task for ruining Maharashtra in the 15-year-long-rule, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday asked the people of the State to mark October 15 as the day of purification of Maharashtra politics by giving a clear mandate to the BJP. “Congress and NCP are birds of the same feather. Their habits, actions, motives, characters, and objectives are same. The duo in its 15-yaer-long rule has ruined the State. The State which was once leading the economy of the nation has been destroyed in their hands. The time has come to teach them a lesson,” the Prime Minister said addressing a massive rally at Thane. “Need of the hour is to make a decision. Make a decision that you won’t see the parties on the land of Maharashtra anymore,” Modi said calling for a Congress-NCP-mukt Maharashtra. “This poll will not just decide who will come to power. This poll is the beginning of purification of Maharashtra politics,” Modi said. “Press the button on ‘Kamal’ button. Give Maharashtra to BJP if you want its all-round development. Let Centre and Maharashtra Government work shoulder to shoulder for a developed Maharashtra. I can assure you that BJP will take the State to a new height,” Modi said. “The economy of Maharashtra has a direct impact of India’s economy. When Maharashtra will progress, the entire nation will move ahead. When Maharashtra will develop, India will develop,” the Prime Minister said. Earlier in the day, while addressing a massive rally at Loha, the Prime Minister asked the people of Maharashtra to give a clear mandate to BJP for changing the destiny of Maharashtra. “Give me a chance to serve you. Give a clear mandate to BJP. We will change the destiny of Maharashtra,” Modi said.

The Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company (MSEDCL) officials claimed that the problem occurred after a pole tower collapsed in Kalwa creek. The seven-hour cut started at 10am and went on till 5pm. Consumers were hit the most as they had to sweat it out when the temperatures have already touched 35 degrees Celsius. They were upset with the MSEDCL officials as they fail to keep their word about providing uninterrupted power supply. ''We had a tough time on Friday as there was no electricity in the day. The same problem occurred on Saturday as well. This kind of service is uncalled for,'' said Vishal Lade, a resident of Kasarwadvli. However, an MSEDCL official said, "The power shortfall in the state, along with the collapse of a high tension tower along Kalwa creek, hampered the supply. We are trying commission new high tension lines in the area which will solve most of the power problem.'' Article continuesStay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps.

They maintained that the polls were funded by donations and loans. The self-declaration by the candidates contesting the Lok Sabha elections in April from Thane district has revealed that the entire campaign expense of the Shiv Sena nominees from Thane and Kalyan parliamentary seats was collectively Rs 1.11 crore as against the collective limit of Rs 1.40 crore. Thane MP Rajan Vichare and Kalyan MP Dr Shrikant Shinde's poll funding collectively totaling up to Rs 1.11 crore, as declared before the election commission recently, was funded from donations and loans, they said. Incidentally, the identity of these generous private donors has not been mentioned in their declarations. According to the declarations, Vichare's total poll expense exceeded a little over Rs 52 lakh, while Dr Shinde spent over Rs 51 lakh for his high-pitch campaign. Sena nominees claimed that they had not received a penny from their party for the poll campaign. In fact, both candidates declared that they could raise only Rs 3 lakh each from their own funds for the poll campaign. "People ought to know who these donors are and what their interest in funding political candidates is. It would be in the larger interest of the citizens to know as to how the parliamentarians will repay these funds or is it a donation without any expectation,'' said political observers. Records revealed that two other contestants--Vishwanath Patil, Congress nominee from Bhiwandi LS seat and Baliram Jadhav, candidate of Hitendra Thakur's Bahujan Vikas Aghadi from Palghar LS seat, accepted donations of Rs 19 lakh and Rs 1.44 lakh respectively. Officials said almost all the political parties, with the exception of the Sena, funded the poll campaign of their candidates. "The NCP contested two seats of Thane and Kalyan and their nominees Sanjeev Naik and Anand Paranjpe received Rs 50 lakh each towards meeting the poll expenses. Naik has declared that he spent close to Rs 63 lakh in the poll campaign, while Paranjpe's poll expense exceeded a little over Rs 66 lakh,'' said the official. The highest poll expenses in the district were declared by Naik, followed by Vishwanath Patil's Rs 62.86 lakh. BJP's Chintaman Wanga from Palghar constituency has declared the lowest poll expense of Rs 41.38 lakh. Article continuesStay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps.

Dhokali new venue for Modi’s concluding rallyThe author has posted comments on this articleB B Nayak, TNN | Oct 11, 2014, 09.39AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4 THANE : With an aim to accommodate more people and for security reasons, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's concluding poll rally will now be held at Highland Garden Maidan instead of Central Maidan. Allowing the National Security Guards (NSG) ample time to manage Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray's rally on October 11 and PM's rally on October 12, the venue has been shifted to Dhokali, Balkum. The city police were apprehensive of traffic snarls, security issues and high-turnout at the visibly congested Central Maidan that can accommodate not more than 5,000 to 6,000 people. Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) functionaries changed their mind to hold the PM's public meeting for Thane to the new venue just 48 hours before the event. The sprawling Patni ground was the first choice for the rally to be held, but the idea was ruled out by the city BJP cadre. Thane police are now relieved with the change of venue. "We kept telling the organizers that Central Maidan will not be able to accommodate a huge crowd considering Modi has a great fan following," said a senior cop. "We are expecting over 30,000 people at the rally. Central Maidan would not be able to take in so much of crowd, which forced us to look for another venue. Besides, NSG officials also were not in favour of Central Maidan for security reasons. We will now hold the rally at Balkum," said a BJP functionary.

Addressing a rally in Thane on Saturday, Sena chief launched a scathing attack on the BJP's central leadership and blamed them for a split in the saffron alliance in Maharashtra. "Seat sharing used to be discussed with Maharashtra leaders. But for the first time in 25 years the seat sharing discussion was done by the leaders in Delhi. The BJP offered 135 seats to the Sena saying that during a survey conducted by them it was observed that there are several seats which the Sena could not win. The actual problem arose when the BJP leaders started demanding a seat from Thane. The city has been the bastion of the Sena and I cannot give any share from here as Thaneites have always stood by late Balasaheb Thackeray and Anand Dighe," Thackeray said, adding, "There is anger among people against misrule of the Congress-NCP. But the anger is more against the BJP for breaking the oldest saffron alliance, which was inked on an 'Hindutva' base." Referring to the break up of the oldest political alliance as unfortunate, the Sena chief escalated his attack on the BJP. "Before asking for power in Maharashtra the BJP must explain to the voters the actual reason for putting end to their relationship with Balasaheb and Hindutva," Thackeray added.

Only 10 candidates contesting for polls from Thane cityThe author has posted comments on this articleSanjeev Shivadekar, TNN | Oct 11, 2014, 09.27AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4 THANE : Within the four assembly seats that fall under the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) limits, Thane assembly has the lowest number of candidates as against Mumbra-Kalwa constituency. According to the records maintained by the election department, a total of 51 candidates are in the fray for the four assembly seats under the TMC jurisdiction, out of which only 10 contenders are fighting for the Thane assembly seat. Interestingly, many Muslim candidates will be contesting from Mumbra-Kalwa constituency. This election, the number of Muslim candidates is 9 as compared to the 2009 assembly polls. In 2009, NCP leader Jitendra Awhad had polled 61,510 seats and won the assembly seat with a margin of nearly 17,000 votes. This rise in numbers is seen not only in the Mumbra-Kalwa belt, but across the state. A total of 45 Muslim candidates across the state are contesting the polls as against 19 candidates in 2009. But with the split in the Congress-NCP alliance, the Muslim candidates have increased, especially with MIM party joining the fray. Political observers feel that with this it will not be a cake walk for the sitting MLA. ''This time, it is a five corner fight in Maharashtra. With a split in the Congress-NCP it is certain that secular votes will get divided. Also, Samajwadi Party and MIM candidates in Muslim-dominated areas will make a further dent in the Congress or NCP vote bank,'' the observer said. MIM is gaining popularity among the Muslim community and has been seen as an alternative to the Samajwadi Party. The city will go to the polls on October 15 and counting will be held on October 19.

2014-10-11Consumer forum fines Thane physiotherapist - Daily
Consumer forum fines Thane physiotherapist Saturday, 11 October 2014 - 6:30am IST | Agency: DNA Pranali Lotlikar 8Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit The Thane district consumer forum on Friday penalised a Thane physiotherapist for failing to hand over the required medical bills as well as the prescription she had given to one of her patients in 2011. The forum has directed the practitioner to cough up Rs25,000, for the patient's mental agony, and hand over the important documents to him. The complainant and Thane resident Bhupesh Patel had approached Dr Manali Dixit in November 2011 for physiotherapy for his father, who had suffered a paralytic stroke. Dixit, after going through the medical report of Patel's father, decided to visit his place daily for the treatment at a charge of Rs400 a day. She gave Patel's father treatment for three months and, accordingly, charged him Rs24,000. As per the complaint copy, in December 2011, when Patel realised that his office would reimburse medical bills for treatment undertaken by the company's employees and their family members, he requested Dixit to give him a proper report of her treatment, which would include the prescription as well as bills of the entire treatment. The forum, after going though Patel's version, asked Dixit to file her say. She claimed that as she used to go to the complainant's home for giving treatment, she can't issue bills in such a case. She also claimed that Patel, at one point, even asked her to issue a bill of Rs1,000 instead of Rs400, which she refused to do. The forum, after going through the arguments placed on record, maintained that it was the doctor's duty to issue her patient a proper report and bills, and by not doing so, she has failed to provide the required services to her consumer. 8Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit consumer forummedical billsThanephysiotherapy

In Shiv Sena bastion Thane, Rajnath Singh attacks Congress-NCP Saturday, 11 October 2014 - 6:55am IST | Agency: DNA Padmja Sinha 4Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Rajnath Singh addresses a rally from the back of a mini-truck at Wagle Estate in Thane on Friday Sandip Lele Indian forces silencing their Pakistani counterparts on the border front couldn't have come at a more opportune time for Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh. The minister, who addressed a rally in Thane on Friday, was gung-ho about the aggressive posture of our front-line troops. After the break-up of their 25-year-old alliance with the Shiv Sena, BJP's big guns are all out to capture Thane and Kalyan, known bastions of the latter. While External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had on Thursday said that Uddhav Thackeray should maintain decency and not go overboard with his criticism of the BJP, Singh chose to play safe, targeting the erstwhile Congress-NCP government in Maharashtra for price rise, inflation and many other problems. Standing on the back of a mini truck, the senior BJP addressed the public at Wagle Estate. He highlighted the prime minister's Jan Dhan Yojna, saying it had helped crores of people get bank accounts. If voted to power, BJP will create a lot of job opportunities for the youth in the next five years, said the union minister. "Despite having huge potential, the state still leads in corruption, red-tapism, farmer suicide and, above all, with 1,362 rape cases a year. If BJP comes to power, the scenario will be altogether different," said Singh as he canvassed for advocate Sandeep Lele of Kopri-Panchpakhadi constituency. Singh also sang praises for Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his governance and India's achievement in science and technology. He talked about young brigades who have the capacity to bring change for good and also assured the people that his party was not power hungry. "You can definitely vote us out if you feel we are not working for your betterment." Rajnath Singh chose not to utter a word against the Sena. His speech focussed on the NCP and Congress. He said during the Congress-NCP regime, petrol and diesel prices were hiked twice and thrice every month, while the BJP government has reduced petrol prices three times and diesel too will become cheaper. With an obvious mention the PM, and the masses chanting Modi's name every now and then, the home minister talked about BJP's achievements. He said that he would love to visit the constituency again.

Election squads seize Rs 51 lakh cash in Thane By Vinay Dalvi |Posted 11-Oct-2014 One vehicle was stopped in Parsik Nagar, Kharegaon, and Rs 11.26 lakh was seized from it; on the Thakurli-Kalyan Road, officials caught a man with Rs 40 lakh, who claimed he was a builder and the cash was to pay tax Seizures of cash are increasingly being observed in the city and neighbouring areas, as the election nears. On Thursday night, police and election officials managed to seize nearly R51 lakh from Thane. The police have, as of now, ruled out any political angle to the money. Representational picture Around 11.30 pm, Kalwa police and election officials, in a nakabandi, stopped a Ford EcoSport near Parsik Nagar, Kharegaon. When they checked the car, they found a handbag in the boot with Rs 11.26 lakh in it. The four people in the car claimed the money belonged to a financial company. Police have handed them over to the Income Tax department. “They claimed the cash was of a finance company, but why were they carrying it in the night?” questioned a Kalwa police official. In another incident, the flying squad of the Election Commission stopped a white-coloured Toyota Fortuner and seized around Rs 40 lakh cash. The occupant claimed to be a builder, Manor Roy, and said he was taking the cash to pay his taxes. “We are checking his details and why he was carrying the cash. He was stopped on the Thakurli-Kalyan Road on Friday around 3 pm,” said an Election Commission official. The police further stated that carrying such large amounts of cash was illegal anyway, and that the I-T department would take action as required. The Thane police had earlier caught around Rs 17 lakh in cash from Kopri, Thane city.

NM sulks as top netas make beeline for ThaneThe author has posted comments on this articleB B Nayak, TNN | Oct 11, 2014, 02.30AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4THANE: Candidates contesting from Thane assembly seem to be gaining an upper edge over their Navi Mumbai counterparts with political big-wigs cutting across party lines canvassing for them by holding rallies in Thane. While Bahujan Samaj Party's Mayawati, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena's Raj Thackeray and Nationalist Congress Party's R R Patil held rallies in the city with Prime Minister Narendra Modi holding his concluding rally in Thane, Navi Mumbai candidates are bereft of star campaigners.While external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj canvassed for Panvel candidate Prashant Thakur on Thursday, there will be no presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi or any other senior Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders in rallies at Belapur and Airoli constituencies. Navi Mumbai will not just miss watching BJP big-wigs campaign, but also those from Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and Congress have also decided to give the satellite city a miss. Patni ground in Airoli was earlier decided for hosting the PM's joint rally for Thane and Navi Mumbai, but Modi will be concluding his poll rally at Highland Garden Maidan in Thane on October 12. Long time BJP loyalists insisted on the concluding rally being held in the city, leaving new entrants in the party at Navi Mumbai red-faced. Similarly, Raj Thackeray will not be present to campaign and represent Maharashtra Navnirman Sena in Navi Mumbai. Congress state top leaders had planned to undertake road shows but later backed out due to their pre-occupations and much hectic commitment in their own constituencies. The only political stalwart who visited Vashi for Belapur and Airoli constituencies was Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar. "Modi has isolated the local BJP cadre by making it clear that no public meeting or rally will be held in Navi Mumbai. He also chose Thane to address the concluding gathering on October 12 as all BJP candidates out there are old-timers unlike Navi Mumbai candidates, who switched loyalty from other parties," said a political analyst. While Panvel BJP candidate Thakur was lucky enough to have Swaraj batting for him, Belapur and Airoli nominees failed to capitalize on any star campaigners. They are now banking on BJP youth leader Pankaja Munde's rally at Koparkhairane on October 11. In the same line, Shiv Sena Youth President Aditya Thackeray had visited Panvel gave Airoli and Belapur a miss. "Aditya was in favour of youth candidates from these seats, which did not materialize. Upset with this decision he chose to give Navi Mumbai a miss despite being present in Thane on Friday," said a Sena insider.

Post-division, 10 constituencies crucial in ThaneThe author has posted comments on this articlePradeep Gupta, TNN | Oct 9, 2014, 10.54PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4KALYAN: After the division of Thane district, 10 constituencies in the extended central suburb, including four in Kalyan-Dombivli city, three in Bhiwandi, and Ulhasnagar, Ambernath and Murbad, will play a major role in the October 15 assembly elections. In the 2009 assembly elections, the MNS won two seats in Kalyan after party chief Raj Thackeray's arrest, boosting his popularity among local Maharashtrians. But the two are now struggling to retain their seats due to non-performance. In Dombivli, where Brahmin and Agari voters are a major deciding factor, the fight is between BJP MLA Ravindra Chavan and one of the Shiv Sena's youngest candidates in Maharashtra, Dipesh Mahatre, 30. Dombivli city, which is considered an "educated and cultural city" does not have any highly educated candidate; Dipesh has done his HSC. The candidates also have serious criminal cases registered against them. Chavan has 12 cases, NCP's Vikas Mahatre 16 and MNS's Harichandra Patil one criminal case; Dipesh do not have any against him. Political observers said Kalyan West and East are major battlegrounds, where each constituency has five candidates fighting each other. In Kalyan (E), the NCP has fielded educationist Nilesh Shinde, nephew of NCP MLC Jagganath Shinde, against former NCP supporter Ganpat Gaikwad. Like the last election, Gaikwad will again contest as an independent, while the Sena has given a ticket to loyalist Gopal Landge. In Sindhi-dominated Ulhasnagar constituency, BJP's Kumar Ailani is trying his best to retain his seat. Pappu Kalani's wife is contesting this time due to his conviction in a murder case. The Kalanis have the sympathy of Sindhi voters and Pappu Kalani has won elections from jail twice before. This time, the SAI party has joined hands with the Kalanis, increasing Ailani's troubles. In Ambernath city, a Sena stronghold, there is a tough fight between its MLA Balaji Kinikar and BJP's Rajesh Wankhede. Murbad, which is a rural area, will see a fight between BJP's Kishan Kathore and Sena's Waman Mahatre. Kathore, who was an NCP MLA, had recently joined the BJP. BJP MP Kapil Patil is trying his best to ensure a win for the party in the three assembly constituencies in Bhiwandi. The Congress and NCP are hopeful in Muslim-dominated Bhiwandi (E) and Bhiwandi (W). The Samajwadi Party has fielded Farhan Azmi, son of SP's Maharashtra unit chief Abu Azmi, from Bhiwandi (W). In Bhiwandi rural, the fight is between three relatives, two of whom are brothers Shantaram Patil and Dashrath Patil. Shantaram is contesting on a BJP ticket, while Dashrath has been fielded by the MNS. All political parties are eyeing the seats in the extended central suburb as it has become a hot destination for people due to the real estate boom.

Howrah-Mumbai Duronto stuck in Thane for 90 minutess; outstation, local services hitThe author has posted comments on this articleTNN | Oct 9, 2014, 11.33PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4MUMBAI: Railway services on the fast track towards Mumbai were disrupted for 90 minutes on Thursday morning after the locomotive of the Howrah-Mumbai Duronto Express developed a snag at Thane station. After crossing Parsik tunnel, the locomotive pilot sensed a technical problem in the engine and brought the train to a halt on platform number 6 at Thane station around 10.30am. The station officials diverted outstation trains, including Pragati Express, Sahyadri Express and Punjab Mail, and suburban services on adjoining platforms, said a CR official. The line was cleared after CR deployed another engine from the Vidyavihar loco shed, which reached Thane station around 11.30am, and pulled away the train by 12pm. But by then, several commuters were inconvenienced. Suburban commuters waiting on the platform complained that no proper announcements were made about the diversions. Some harried passengers from Duronto got off that Thane and took local trains to reach their destinations. "Some fast trains were diverted on platform 4, while many passengers were waiting on platform 6. The railways could have made announcements," said a media professional from Thane. "The locomotive of the Duronto Express developed a failure at Thane station. We deployed another locomotive to pull it out of the station. The cause of the snag is under investigation," said a senior CR official. Article continuesStay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps. Click here to download it for your device.

As the woman came out of the 'dhabha', the duo dragged her to an isolated place behind the eatery and took turns to rape her, he said. The duo also threatened her of dire consequences if she reported the incident to anybody and later fled from there, said Ghosalkar. Based on the woman's complaint, police nabbed the duo last night and further investigations are underway in the case, he added.

"We have all the necessary permissions. There is no change in the venue. The rally will be held as scheduled at Central Maidan," said a Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) functionary. The saffron party alleged that rival political parties were "trying to create and mislead" BJP followers by spreading rumours that the police have not given permission for the rally. Many political parties, especially Shiv Sena leaders do not want Modi's rally to take place in Thane as they fear that voters may get impressed by the BJP after the PM's speech," alleged the BJP leader. Party sources said that the Thane police was insisting that the rally be held at some other venue and not at Central Maidan as the capacity of the ground is less than 7,000. "The PM has huge number of followers. The people's turnout to hear Modi will be more than the capacity of the ground. In order to make sure there is no law and order problem, the department asked BJP leaders to reschedule the rally on a bigger ground," said the party functionary.

Wadala-Thane metro likely to get funds from World Bank Tuesday, 7 October 2014 - 6:05am IST | Agency: DNA Ateeq Shaikh 42Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit For representation purpose only World Bank is likely to fund the proposed 30.8-km-long Wadala-Thane metro rail. As per initial discussions and planning done by civic, state and central government officials on the Wadala to Kasarvadavali (in Thane) metro rail, World Bank in all probability will provide loan for the project. "Financial details or how much amount will come as loan is yet to be finalised, but for this metro rail, having an estimated cost of around Rs 22,000crore, World Bank will provide financial assistance," said an official of Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA). The MMRDA is Special Planning Authority (SPA) for Wadala, which lacks public transportation options. To turn the marshy area into a business district on the lines of Bandra-Kurla Complex, metro rail was proposed in the master plan. Also, Kasarvadavali on Thane's Ghodbunder Road is a distant location, and it takes over half an hour to reach Kasarvadavali from Thane station. Due to high real estate prices, in the last half a decade, there has been tremendous increase in the population along Ghodbunder Road, and it will only multiply in the years to come. In all, 31 stations are likely to be constructed on the alignment, out of which 10 would be underground in the eastern suburbs of Mumbai, due to lack of space on the arterial LBS Road. The planners redesigned the metro rail route as the metro rail master plan had recommended separate metro rails between Hutatma Chowk-Ghatkopar and Ghatkopar-Mulund. By mid-2010, it was decided to extend this route to Teen Haath Naka in Thane from Mulund. But, later Hutatma Chowk-Ghatkopar corridor was scrapped. The Wadala-Thane route was initially Ghatkopar-Mulund. It was reworked and extended up to Teen Haath Naka in Thane. Starting at Wadala and terminating at Kasarvadavli via Ghatkopar-Mulund-Teen Haath Naka are the latest revisions to the route. 42Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA)Bandra-Kurla complexDevelopmentWadalaThaneWorld BankfundRail Revolution

Action-packed poll rallies lined up for ThaneThe author has posted comments on this articleSanjeev Shivadekar, TNN | Oct 7, 2014, 11.18AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4 THANE : With less than eight days remaining for the state election campaign to end, the battle for the ballot is likely to get bitter, especially between friend-turned foes Shiv Sena and BJP. While Shiv Sena party chief Uddhav Thackeray will be addressing a rally in Thane district later this week, BJP has planned a grand show of strength on October 12 where prime minister Narendra Modi will address a rally at the lake city. ''The PM has made it clear he will not attack the Sena during his rally as he has a lot of respect for late Balasaheb Thackeray's party. But Modi is likely to make critical observations about the lack of infrastructure and civic amenities in the city and rest of the state," a political observer said. "Lambasting the administration and MLAs for not addressing civic issues is as good as attacking the Sena, as for nearly two decade they have been controlling the Thane Municipal Corporation. Out of the four assembly seats in Thane, three are represented by the Sena's MLAs,'' the observer added. The PM, in his earlier election rallies, including the one in Mumbai, urged voters to give "complete power" to the BJP for better development of the state. BJP wants to independently come to power after its split with their 25-year-old ally Sena. Meanwhile, Sena is leaving no stone unturned to prove its mettle "All eyes are set on Uddhav Thackeray's rally in the city as it will be a litmus test for the party to retain its bastion here," a key Sena functionary said. Uddhav during his first election rally in Mumbai had launched a scathing attack on the BJP for snapping ties with them. Even MNS chief Raj Thackeray, who has been attacking the BJP and Modi in his public rallies, will be addressing Thaneites on October 8. "It will be interesting to watch Raj Thackeray as he might escalate his attack on BJP's pro-Gujarati stance and make attempts to polarize Marathi votes in Thane,'' said MNS watchers. Thane district is dominated by Marathi voters and MNS might take an olive branch offered by the BJP to revive its Marathi agenda. The campaign will come to an end on October 13 and voting for the state assembly elections will be held on October 15. Counting will take place on October 19.

10 violation of code of conduct cases registered in ThaneThe author has posted comments on this articleSanjeev Shivadekar, TNN | Oct 7, 2014, 09.46PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4Thane: In a run up to the assembly elections, a total of 10 cases have been registered in Thane for violating the model code of conduct, till date. According to the election department officials, of the total 10 cases, two were pertaining to addressing rallies without obtaining prior permission. Four were for pasting and putting up hoardings without following proper administrative approvals and one related to interference and creating hurdles for on-duty government officials. "Our officials took action immediately after receiving the complaints," an election department official said. He added that so far there has been no major violation or issues pertaining to election. Meanwhile, officials claimed that the toll free number started by the Thane election department has received good response. According to the records, till date, nearly 400 complaints have been received via the helpline number and almost every complaint has been attended and addressed. "Most of the complaints were pertaining to missing names in the electoral list, spelling mistakes and wrong addresses," an officer attached to the election department told TOI. With less than two week remaining the city to go to the polls, the department officials, along with the police personnel are all set to sort out critical polling stations and accordingly deploy manpower for a free and fair election process. "As poll date nears, police patrolling and naka bandis have increased," a senior police official said. There are nearly 59.90 lakh voters for the 18 assembly seats in Thane district. Voting for electing new government in Maharashtra will be held on October 15 and counting for the same will be done on October 19.

Thane-NM traffic skids due to peak hr oil spill at KalwaThe author has posted comments on this articleB B Nayak, TNN | Oct 8, 2014, 02.07AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4KALWA: Traffic on Kalwa bridge came to a standstill caused by an oil spill on Tuesday morning. Also, roads connecting Central Maidan, Saket, Dadoji Konddev stadium and Kalwa-Vitawa-Kharegaon were also jammed for three hours. The Kalwa bridge was badly hit. Fire personnel and traffic cops had a tough time cleaning the roads after a few bikers skidded to ensure streamlined movement of vehicles by 10.30am. "We came across oil leakage at around 7am and intimated the fire personnel. Before the fire brigade reached the affected stretch, a few motorcyclists lost control of their vehicles which skidded due to which we had to close one side of the Kalwa bridge. This led to traffic jam," said a traffic cop on duty. Motorists had a tough time on the first day of the week after the extended holidays of Dussehra and Bakri Eid with a huge number of vehicles hitting the road. Motorists said that the fire brigade staff reached 20 minutes late. "Both traffic cops and fire personnel failed to manage the situation as they were late," said an onlooker. "The traffic came to a grinding halt during the morning peak hour. All the roads were jammed, leaving no space for adjustment. I crossed the stretch at 10am after an hour-long struggle while my vehicle was crawling from Vitawa to Kalwa police station," said Rajendra Jadhav, a motorist. A fire official said that the fire personnel did a commendable job within short time and put sand to get rid of oil along the stretch. "It was a daunting task," he said.

It took fire brigade personnel and traffic cops three hours to streamline the vehicular movement. Morning peak hour traffic was also badly hit.

Thane voters see through Wi-Fi city, international infra promises in manifestosThe author has posted comments on this articleNitin Yeshwantrao, TNN | Oct 8, 2014, 02.10AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4THANE: High on poll promises, low on specific's — this seems to be the case with almost all the manifestos released by the contestants in the fray for the October 15 assembly elections here. Going by the vision statements of the candidates from across the political spectrum, Thane could soon be competing with New York, London or Singapore given their wish-list to turn the lake city into a smart city with garbage-free streets, Wi-Fi connectivity, best-of-the-class transport infrastructure, super specialty hospitals, higher FSI and freedom from toll. However, a thorough assessment of the manifestos for elements such as clarity of goals, achievability and relevance to the ground situation indicates that the promises are simply too bold. "The voters here are already baffled because of the array of candidates to choose from. Now, each contestant has come up with a vision statement and manifesto, which is nothing but a muddle of issues. There is no clear idea of how they would achieve what they are promising and the voter is not getting a clear idea from reading the manifesto pages," said Mahesh Nawar, a resident of Vasant Vihar. While the unanimous wish-list of citizens is for more green spots, better traffic management and footpaths, almost all the candidates seem to have missed these elementary needs of the locals here and have instead promised the sky. "They are all talking about development and growth, but there is no clear statement on how they plan to achieve that. Parties that were in power in the state government and in the corporation are making tall claims about freedom from toll and LBT. What prevented them from doing it till now?" said a political observer. "Take the example of toll and their promise to make the roads toll-free. The government is legally bound to honour its commitment to the toll contractors who paid thousands of crores of rupees upfront for the toll contract. Now, just to get votes, the political parties are saying they will withdraw toll. It is next to impossible, as it will only lead to legal complications. Moreover, it will send the wrong signals to the business community that the government does not honour legal commitments," added the observer. "The Shiv Sena-BJP has been in power in the Thane corporation for decades, but till date there is no garbage disposal site to dump and dispose the waste scientifically. One-third of the city does not have an underground sewage line, but this fact does not stop them from making grand announcements and deceiving voters," the observer said. Promises made to construct a super-specialty hospital and improve infrastructure of civic schools have evoked angry reactions. "The Thane corporation-run Kalwa hospital is seen as a death-trap by the locals who avoid going there due to inadequate medical staff and non-availability of medicines. The civic school buildings are crumbling due to neglect and in places like Mumbra-Kausa the student presence in a classroom is above 100," he added.

Thane cops seek funds for unit devoted to kidsBy Nazia SayedNazia Sayed, Mumbai Mirror | Oct 6, 2014, 08.51 AM ISTTweetShare on Linkedin CommentsMoreGoogle BookmarksNewsvineLive BookmarksTechnoratiYahoo BookmarksBlogmarksDel.icio.usApnaCircleEmail this articlePrint this articleAReduce font sizeAIncrease font sizecommentsTweetShare MoreEmail this articlePrint this articleAReduce font sizeAIncrease font sizeURL copied to clipboardGoogle BookmarksNewsvineLive BookmarksTechnoratiYahoo BookmarksBlogmarksDel.icio.usApnaCircleMy Saved articlesRELATEDThane Police Commissioner Vijay Kamble's brainchild of launching India's first full-fledged Child Protection Unit took root last month. But, with a paucity of funds preventing the venture from growing, the police are trying to rope in corporate houses to give the initiative a boost. The police have approached several business houses — including a children's entertainment giant and an industrial conglomerate — to pull in funds and carry the endeavour further. Cops say CPU is the first police branch focusing mainly on child trafficking cases. The search for children who went missing 15 years ago, as well as recent cases, is being carried out by five teams formed under CPU. "The cops handling these cases are dressed in plain clothes, as many don't feel comfortable talking to uniformed policemen. The officers will ensure their appearance is such that children will relate to them," said DCP Parag Manere of Thane Crime Branch. "Child trafficking is increasing day by day. Years ago, no pains were taken to trace missing children, and their data is rotting in closed files ever since," DCP Manere said. Thane Municipal Corporation sanctioned Rs 15 lakh for construction of an entire building to house rescued kids, but as per original plans the unit requires a crore of rupees which is difficult for them to get sanctioned. They then decided to rope in private parties who will relate to such a project. "Among corporates we approached are Godrej and Disney, a brand that children easily relate to. We sent representatives to meet them, but are yet to receive a response. It's too early to comment," DCP Manere added. While no official of Godrej was available for comment, an official spokesperson of Disney told Mirror, "As of now we are not associated with any local programme." Meanwhile, cops have begun a door-todoor survey of those households who reported missing children in the past 15 years. The vehicles used by CPU do not have any police logo or the word 'Police' written on them. Instead, they have cartoons painted on them. Space will also be provided for a psychiatrist, an activity centre and a training hall for officers. "The atmosphere will not give any hint of police presence," an officer said.

2014-10-05Sena banks on Marathi manoos to win in Thane - Hin
Sena banks on Marathi manoos to win in Thane Sayli Udas Mankikar, Hindustan Times  Mumbai, October 05, 2014 First Published: 23:54 IST(5/10/2014) | Last Updated: 15:26 IST(6/10/2014) Email print Font Size A | A+ | A- Subscribe Breaking News Alert Comments It’ll be a toss-up between withholding a legacy and promise of development for the Thane voters, this assembly polls. Advertisement As the 70% of voters in Thane are Marathi-speaking, it remains to be seen if they will answer Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray’s call for Marathi pride or will be wooed by Narendra Modi’s promise of development. Thane city has always been a Sena fort, but after the Sena-BJP split, it looks like the main fight will be between these two parties. In 2009, all three constituencies in Thane city voted for the Sena and even showed former NCP MP Sanjeev Naik the door during the 2014 Lok Sabha. All eyes are now on senior Sena leader Eknath Shinde, who represents the Kopri-Pachpakhadi constituency spanning from Thane (East) to Wagle Estate. He might face tough competition from BJP’s Sandeep Lele, this time around. In Owla-Majiwada, sitting Sena legislator Pratap Sarnaik, a rich builder who follows the open door policy, seems to be the popular candidate. But with municipal corporator Sanjay Pandey of BJP fielded against him, Sarnaik’s worry has increased. The main action, however, will be in Thane city — from Station Road to Hiranandani Estate and Ghodbunder Road — which was so far held by MP Rajan Vichare of the Shiv Sena. Ravi Fatak, a Congress rebel, is Sena’s candidate and this has given rise to internal bickering. BJP’s candidate Sanjay Kelkar, a former legislator is a known face, and is likely to appeal to the huge Marathi Brahmin community. NCP too has played it clever by fielding Niranjan Davkhare, a young Thaneite, who is an MLC and Vasant Davkhare’s son. He just might gain from the Sena-BJP fight. But the MP of the Kalyan constituency, Shrikant Shinde, Eknath Shinde’s son and one of Sena’s chief strategists, rubbishes this theory. “For the Marathi-speaking people hurting the sentiments of Balasaheb is not acceptable. No wave will work in front of that,” he says. Niranajan, 35, says one cannot ignore the youth, who want to see further development. “I am a Thaneite and I have a development plan for the city. This is my USP,” he says. Millind Ballal, the editor of the local newspaper Thane Vaibhav, points out that the new equations have turned the tables for all parties. “There are some legislators like Shinde or Sarnaik who are sitting legislators, known faces and have done some work. MNS is not a factor now. But one cannot ignore the fact that there are huge number of BJP voters and since they have never been counted separately, we do not know how things will pan out,” he says.

2014-10-05Only 13 women in the fray for state polls from Tha
Only 13 women in the fray for state polls from Thane districtThe author has posted comments on this articleSanjeev Shivadekar, TNN | Oct 5, 2014, 09.59PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4Thane: While political parties include women empowerment as a key agenda of their manifesto, the notion of gender inequality is almost visible when it comes to nominating female candidates for the state polls. Only 13 women candidates are in the fray from the district for the polls of which six are nominated by political parties while rest are contesting as independent candidates. Shiv Sena is the only party that has not nominated a single woman from Thane for the 18 assembly seats. The election department has recorded that while the Congress has nominated two women candidates, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), Bhartiya Janata Party, Nationalist Congress Party and Bahujan Samaj Party have put forward one woman candidate each in the district. Political analyst Aruna Pendse said, "While every party talks about giving 33 per cent reservation for women in politics, when it comes to nominating them for polls, the representation ratio is almost negligible." The poor representation of female candidates in the district is despite the high number of women voters. Of the total 59.90 lakh voters in Thane, nearly 26.50 lakh are female voters. "The Members of Legislative Assembly have passed a legislation of 33 per cent female reservation in corporation and councils, but are not taking up the bill to amend the rules and make a similar kind of reservation for women in assembly elections. This clearly reflects that political parties cutting across party lines do not want women to share power with them," claimed Pendse. The situation was no different during the last election. In 2009, 10 women were elected in the 288 strong house of the state legislative assembly. A key Sena functionary from Thane admitted that there should have been female representation from the saffron party in the district. However he said, "Merely giving assembly tickets does not mean that the respective party has high regards for women. Shiv Sena has always held women highly and has always taken to the streets to protest the rising crime against women." Article continuesStay updated on the go with The Times of India’s mobile apps.

2014-10-05Voters between 30 and 39 years to play vital role
Voters between 30 and 39 years to play vital role in Thane districtThe author has posted comments on this articleManoj Badgeri, TNN | Oct 6, 2014, 12.00AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4Thane: While political parties elsewhere are set to reach out to the young voters, the scenario in Thane might be somewhat different. Records indicate that the maximum percentage of voters here are in the middle age group. Some political observers say parties could most likely come up with appeasers for this segment and be forced to modify their strategies to adapt to this rather unique trend. The middle age group between 30 and 39 years seems to be the densest sector of voters in Thane and surrounding constituencies for the forthcoming Assembly polls. Of the total 13,88,316 voters in the four constituencies of Ovala-Majiwada, Thane city, Kopri-Panchpakhadi and Mumbra-Kalwa, 3,94,557 or around 29% voters fall in the middle age group of 30-39 years. A number that, observerssay, is surprising. They are followed by those in 40-49 and the 20-29 age segment that comprise 24% (3,41,148) and 16% (2,34,587) of the total voter density respectively. Youngsters in the 18-19 age bracket forms just 1% (17,324) of the voter base here in Thane while septuagenarians form 4% (51,314) and octogenarians comprise of 1% (20,256) of the voter base. There are 2,12,320 voters in the age group of 50-59 forming 15% of the voter populations while there are 1,16,810 voters that comprise 8% of the total voter population between 60-69 years. Of these four constituencies in Thane, Owala- Majiwada constituency has the highest number of voters in the 20-29, 30-39 and the 40-49 age groups. The Kopri-Panchpakhadi constituency has the maximum voters among the 18-19 years and 50-59 age groups. Meanwhile, Thane city has more seniors registered as voters in the age bracket of 60-69, 70-79 and above 80 years among the four constituencies.

2014-10-05Rs 4.29-crore project to give Thane a facelift - M
Rs 4.29-crore project to give Thane a facelift By Shreya Bhandary |Posted 05-Oct-2014 It will fix the city's infrastructural and traffic issues on a virtual level It won’t be long before Thane gives some serious competition to other well-planned cities in the world, thanks to a project which will evaluate and fix the city’s infrastructural and traffic issues on a virtual level. The project, believed to be the first-of-its-kind in India, is still in the pipeline and is expected to raise Thane to the ranks of cities such as New York, Sydney, Singapore, and Barcelona, where similar studies have been conducted. The project will take into consideration vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Pic for representational purpose only Medulla-Soft Technologies Private Limited, a portfolio company of IIM-Ahmedabad’s Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE) bagged the Thane City Wide Simulation Study Project, which will be a joint venture with Transport Simulation Systems (TSS), a leading Spain-based global firm. Apart from studying the city’s traffic, the project will also help build a microsimulation model of development for the Thane Municipal Corporation. Such studies, which analyse traffic ecosystems and provide safe, sustainable and future-proof solutions to growing traffic challenges, have proved to be very useful for regulating traffic in big cities. Changing landscape“The Thane City Wide Simulation project will change the landscape of urban transport planning in India,” said Shantanu Sharma, founding director of Medulla-Soft Technologies Private Limited. “Many developed cities in the world plan and propose projects in the urban transport space based on city-wide simulation models.” He added that this particular model of the project for Thane city will, in the future, be treated as a guidebook for upcoming public transport, public parking projects as well as traffic analysis. “We have also received queries from other municipal corporations in Maharashtra and various other cities in India for a similar study,” he added. The study is expected to make the implementation of development plans in the city easier. “Through this model, we can help the local municipal corporation with infrastructural changes if any, and study the impact it’ll have on the population,” explained Sharma. In its current form, the project costs around R4.29 crores. “It is a good strategy which not only makes way for development, but also takes into consideration two major problems every city faces — vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Once this project works well, other cities can take advantage of the study,” he added. Thane municipal commissioner Aseem Gupta said the project will help understand the traffic situation in Thane city. “It will help us find a census of how many vehicles and/or pedestrians pass through our roads everyday. Also, in future, if we plan new flyovers or transport routes, implementing the same will be easier,” he said.

2014-10-04Women get short shrift in Thane - The Asian Age
Women get short shrift in Thane Oct 04, 2014 | Age Correspondent | mumbai Share Despite Thane district having 45 per cent women voters, the percentage of female candidates in the forthcoming Assembly elections is miniscule. The fact that major parties have fielded only four female candidates emphasises that men will continue to dominate the political scene in the region. The only four women candidates in the district are Manda Mhatre (BJP) in Belapur, Sharada Patil (Congress) in Kalyan Rural, Sejal Kadam (MNS) in Kopri-Panchpakhadi and Jyoti Kalani (NCP) in Ulhasnagar. In the Thane district, there are a total of 59 lakh voters, of which 26.57 lakh are women. Despite this, in most of the constituencies there is not even a single woman candidate in the fray. Interestingly, when it comes to putting up dummy candidates, male candidates have turned to their wives in several constituencies. These women filed their nominations as a dummy for their husbands and later withdrew them. In Owala-Majiwada constituency, Parisha Sarnaik filed her candidature for her husband Pratap Sarnaik of Shiv Sena while Sulekha Chavan filed nomination for her husband Sudhakar Chavan of the MNS, both as dummy candidates. In Mira-Bhayandar, Suman Mehta was a dummy candidate for her husband Narendra Mehta of the BJP and in Bhiwandi, Asha More, wife of Shiv Sena aspirant Shantaram More, filed her nomination. Both withdrew after being denied a ticket by the party. Post new comment Your name: * E-Mail Address: * The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly.

Rape accused on the run for 4 years nabbed in ThaneThe author has posted comments on this articleGeorge Mendonca, TNN | Oct 5, 2014, 12.01AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4NAVI MUMBAI: A 54-year-old man, Suryakant Bait, was arrested on Friday at Thane station for allegedly raping a teenager multiple times in 2010. The police were tipped off that Bait, who lived in Koparkhairane when he raped the girl, was currently living in Waghbil, Thane. The cops tracked him and laid a trap for him so when he steps out of Thane station, they could arrest him. On Friday, as soon as Bait got out of the station to go home, a team of cops swooped in and arrested him. "Bait had sexually assaulted his 19-year-old colleague at a travel agency he ran in 2010. The first time, he had pretended to take her for a business meeting then stayed at a lodge and raped her. He repeated the act in his office and in his house. He had threatened the teen with dire consequences if she told anyone about his acts. But she finally approached the police," said Vikram Bansode, assistant police inspector and investigating officer.

2014-10-03Thane being a Shiv Sena bastion, will other partie
Thane being a Shiv Sena bastion, will other parties be able to make a dent in it? Saturday, 4 October 2014 - 3:47am IST | Agency: DNA Naveeta Singh 5Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit With the breaking up of Sena-BJP and Congress-NCP alliance, the poll battle for the legislative assembly (LA) has taken an interesting turn. As Thane has been a Shiv Sena bastion, as has been proven by previous track records, will other politicians be able to make a dent here is the question everyone is asking. However, experts feel that all this chaos is going to benefit the BJP and even MNS. In the LA election of 2009, Sena was able to get three out of four seats in Thane and the remaining went to the NCP. Sena candidates defeated the other prominent party candidates by a big margin. For instance, at the Ovala-Majiwada seat, Sena's Pratap Sarnaik defeated Sudhakar Chavan of MNS by 9,041 votes. Similarly, at Kopri-Pachpakhadi, Sena's Eknath Shinde won over Congress' Tukaram Shinde with a margin of 32,776 votes. It was only at Thane city that MNS gave a tough fight to Sena, even though Sena won in the end. Sena's Rajan Vichare defeated MNS' Rajan Raje with 2,441 votes. "With the breaking up of alliances, there is also going to be a division of Hindu votes. It will definitely affect Sena," said a political source. According to Surendra Jondhale, professor, department of civics and politics, University of Mumbai, though Sena has a strong presence in Thane, its break up with BJP is going to benefit the latter. "There is going to be a shift in voting patterns this time. The BJP loyalists who have been voting for Sena will desert Sena. So, BJP has got more chances to win this time. There is also likely to be a shift among traditional Sena voters who might switch to MNS as both the parties have same ideologies," said he. Even NCP's poster boy in Thane, Jitendra Awhad, is likely to face a tough fight from Kalwa-Mumbra seat as Majlise-ittehadul-Musalmeen (MIM) has fielded its candidate from there. Then, there is Congress' candidate Yasin Qureshi. "Due to all this division of Hindu votes, NCP is also likely to suffer like Sena," said he. Illegal structures is a crucial issue in Thane and all political parties support it. So, he feels this will further lead to division of votes. 5Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit CongressNCPShiv SenaBharatiya Janata Party (BJP)Maharashtra Elections 2014

2014-10-03Kids perform Ramleela across housing societies in
Kids perform Ramleela across housing societies in Thane Saturday, 4 October 2014 - 4:23am IST | Place: Thane | Agency: DNA Padmja Sinha 4Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit The most vivacious festival, Navratri, has come to an end with people saying adieu to nine-day celebration. As a mark of victory, followed with Ramleela, effigy of Ravana is burnt at many places. Few housing societies in Thane organised Ramleela for children who participated and played different roles. Parag Das, a resident from Valley Tower Annexe, said, "Our children don't know much about mythology so, we thought about enacting the play and asked them to play different roles. They have also been taught at their schools and played small roles, but to include all the children from the society we made arrangements and kids performed Ramleela." "The kids too were excited about playing the role. Younger children were entitled to play role of soldiers, while the elders are paying key role of Vibhishan, Ravan and among others," says Kalpana Ranjan, a parent. Parijat Dutta from Subharambh Complex says, "The kids should know about mythology and our culture and Ramleela is the most interactive way to make them understand about it. Children enjoy when they play different roles as it becomes part of activity for them. My son, Arav and daughter Alisha, both are performing in the play." "We want our children to know the difference between good and evil. So, certainly Dussehra is the festival which conveys the message in a very simple way. My son Vinayak is playing role of Ravan in the play and is very kicked about the celebration. He has done rehearsals in advance and is sure to deliver the best," says Manish Kumar, another parent. 4Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit navratriDussehra

Maharashtra Polls: Thane Police Seize Eight Firearms From Trio Thane | Oct 02, 2014 Tweet PRINT COMMENTS City police have seized a total of eight firearms from three persons taking the total number of weapons confiscated in the district so far to 25 as part of their drive in run-up to October 15 Assembly elections. "The seizure also included 26 cartridges," DCP (Crime) Parag Manere told reporters here today. He said that the accused hailed from Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Nepal and they were arrested yesterday by the Ulhasnagar unit of Crime Branch following raids on their hideouts. The trio are booked under various sections of Indian Penal Code and the Arms Act. Manere said that a team of officials seized marijuana weighing 17 kg from two persons from Mumbra-Shil Road in the district last week. The duo were identified as Santosh Suryavanshi and Ashok Kadam, he said. "Based on the information given by them, the crime branch yesterday arrested one Raju Panchariya from Ahmednagar and seized 7 kg of ganja from his possession," Manere said, adding that offences were already registered under NDPS Act against Suryavanshi and Kadam in Warangal district of Telangana and by Ahmednagar police against Panchariya. Manere said that police on September 26 seized gutka, whose production, sale and distribution is banned in Maharashtra, worth Rs 4.50 lakh from one Mohammad Siddiqui in Naglabunder area of Thane city. Replying to a query, Manere said that as many as 2907 firearms out of the total 5266 licenced firearms have so far been surrendered by their holders.

2014-10-02Thane Prince's Perfect Preserves - U.TV
Thane Prince's Perfect Preserves Published Thursday, 02 October 2014 Thane Prince takes to the This Morning kitchen to show how to rustle up some perfect preserves, great to eat or give as gifts. FACTBOX: PERFECT PRESERVES •Fig & OnionYield 800g, keeps 3mths•Peach & PomegranateYield 950g, keeps 1yr•Hot Chilli JellyYield 1.2kg or 1.6kg w/ pulp, keeps 6mths•Bloody MaryYield 500g, keeps 3mths Fig & Onion MarmaladeIngredients:400g red onions2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil500g dried figs2 red chillies1 orange150g light muscovado sugar1 teaspoon sea salt250ml cider vinegarMethod:Begin by peeling and finely slicing the onions. Place these in a heavy-bottomed, non-reactive pan with the oil. Cover the pan, place it over a low heat, and cook for 25-30 minutes or until the onions have wilted.Now remove the lid and turn the heat up a little, cooking the onions until they brown and caramelise, stirring frequently.Meanwhile, place some clean jars and their lids on a baking tray and then into the oven preheated to 100C/200F/Gas 2 for 20 minutes.Start to prepare the other ingredients. Remove the stems from the dried figs, and slice the flesh finely. Remove and discard the chilli stems, and finely chop the chillies. Wash the orange, and dry it. Finely grate the zest, and then halve the orange and squeeze and retain the juice.Once the onions are a good mid-brown in colour, add the figs, chillies, orange juice and zest, and all the remaining ingredients.Still over a low heat, and covered with the lid, cook the chutney, stirring often with your wooden spoon, until the figs swell and the sugar has completely dissolved.Remove the lid, turn the heat up to medium, and simmer for a further 20 or so minutes, cooking the chutney until it is thick. Stir the pan often, especially towards the end of cooking, as it is then that the chutney will start to stick to the bottom and may burn.To test that the chutney is ready, pull a wooden spoon through the centre of the pan. If both sides stay apart you're good to go. If they run together cook a little longer.Take the pan from the heat and let it sit for 5 minutes. Take the baking tray of jars from the oven at the same time.Pot the chutney into the hot jars, pressing it down well. I use a jam funnel to help with this, but a ladle is fine. Be sure to leave a little head space by filling to the shoulder of the jar and not up the neck.Screw the lids on loosely and leave to cool.Once the chutney is cold, check the lids are tight, then label the jars. Store in a cool, dark place.Peach & Pomegranate ChutneyIngredients:800g firm, ripe peaches400g red onions50g garlic50g fresh root ginger1 teaspoon cardamom pods1 teaspoon black peppercorns1 teaspoon coarse sea salt250ml cider vinegar400g white granulated sugar100ml pomegranate molassesMethod:Place some clean jars and their lids on a baking tray and then into the oven preheated to 100C/200F/Gas 2 for 20 minutes.Begin by peeling, stoning and then chopping the peaches and putting these into a heavy-bottomed, non- reactive pan.Peel and finely chop the onions. Peel the garlic and ginger and chop both finely.Whizz the cardamom seeds with the peppercorns and coarse salt until finely ground. Use a spice mill if you have one, or a processor, or crush thoroughly using a pestle and mortar.Add the onion, garlic, ginger and spices, plus the vinegar, to the pan along with the peaches.Place the pan over a low heat and cover with the lid. Bring up to a low simmer and, stirring from time to time, cook for 10 minutes to soften the peaches and onions.Remove the lid and add the sugar. Still over a low heat,stir frequently until the sugar is completely dissolved: the mixture should not feel gritty when stirred, and there should be no signs of sugar on the back of your spoon.Turn up the heat to medium, and cook the chutney at a moderate boil until thick, about 20 minutes. Stir the pan often, especially towards the end of cooking, as it is then that the chutney will start to stick to the bottom and may burn.To test that the chutney is ready, pull a wooden spoon through the centre of the pan. If both sides stay apart you're good to go. If they run together cook a little longer.Take the pan from the heat and let it sit for 5 minutes. Take the baking tray of jars from the oven at the same time.Pot the chutney into the hot jars, pressing it down well. Be sure to leave a little headspace by filling to the shoulder of the jar and not up the neck.Screw the lids on loosely and leave to cool.Once the chutney is cold, check the lids are tight then label the jars. Store in a cool, dark place.Hot Chilli JellyIngredients:600g red peppers, prepared weight (about 3 large peppers)6-10 fresh, hot, red chillies350ml white or red wine vinegar1kg jam sugarMethod:Start by preparing the vegetables. Cut the peppers and chillies in half and remove all the seeds, pith and stalks.Put the prepared flesh in a food processor and blitz until you have a finely chopped mix.Scrape this into a heavy- bottomed saucepan and pour in the vinegar.Cover with the lid, place the pan over a low heat and bring the contents up to a simmer. Take the lid off and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes.Now, if you want to make a clear jelly, set up your jelly bag in a place where it can remain undisturbed, placing a large bowl underneath. Take the pan and set it close to the bag. Using a ladle spoon the mixture from the pan into the bag. Leave the bag alone, allowing the mixture to drip through for 10-12 hours. Do not squeeze the bag or your jelly will be cloudy.Or, if you want to retain the pepper pulp in the jelly, simply continue with the recipe.Put some clean jam jars and lids on a baking tray and then into the oven preheated to 100C/200F/Gas 2 to heat through gently. Place two to three small plates or saucers in the freezer to chill.Either measure the juice that has dripped overnight and add 100g sugar for each 100ml, or add all the sugar to the softened pepper pulp in the pan.Put the pan over a low heat and stir until the sugar has fully dissolved. There should be no trace of grittiness in the pan or on the back of the spoon.Now bring the mixture up to the boil. Cook the jelly at a full rolling boil, one that can't be stirred down with the spoon, for 5 minutes.Turn off the heat and make your first test for a set. Take a cold plate or saucer from the freezer and spoon on a little jelly. Leave for a minute and then gently push the edge of the mixture. If the surface wrinkles the jelly is ready.If the jelly is still runny, return the pan to the heat and cook for a further 2 minutes before testing again. Always turn off the heat while testing for a set. The jelly should only cook for between 6 and 8 minutes.Once you are happy your jelly will set, turn off the heat and skim off any scum with a slotted spoon, rinsing it in a bowl of hot water between skims.Once this is done, stir in any additional flavours, then let the jelly sit for about 5 minutes. Take the baking tray of jars from the oven at the same time.Pot the jelly into the hot jars. I use a jam funnel to help with this, but a ladle is fine. Top with the lids.When the jars are cold, label them, and check the lids are firmly screwed on. Store in a cool, dark place.Bloody Mary Green Beans & Celery SticksIngredients:200g celery200g round green beans2 tablespoons fine sea salt350ml 6% acidity white wine vinegar1 teaspoon coriander seeds, crushed2 bay leaves1 fresh red chilli, halved30ml dry sherry15ml Worcestershire sauceMethod:Start by preparing the vegetables. Peel the strings from the celery, and top and tail the beans.Slice the celery into long pieces: they need to be the same length as the beans.Blanch the vegetables briefly. Bring a big pan of water to the boil, and add the salt. Have ready a bowl of cold water with some ice cubes in.Add the beans to the boiling water, and cook for 3 minutes, adding the celery after 2 minutes.Lift the vegetables from the boiling water, using a slotted spoon, and plunge them into the iced water, swishing them about to help them cool quickly.Put your chosen jar and its lid into the oven preheated to 100C/200F/Gas 2 for 20 minutes.Lift the beans and the celery sticks out of the cold water and lay them on a clean, ironed tea-towel or some kitchen paper. Pat them dry.Now put the vinegar into a pan with the spices. Put over a low heat, and allow the pan to sit on the heat, without boiling, for 3-4 minutes.Bring the jar out of the oven, and rest for 5 minutes.Using tongs, pack the vegetables, standing them up as much as you can, into your hot jar.Bring the vinegar to the boil, add the sherry and Worcestershire sauce, and pour this into the jar. The vegetables should be completely submerged, by at least 1cm. If not, add more cold vinegar. Scrape all the spices into the jar.Screw the vinegar-proof lid on loosely, and leave to cool.Once the pickle is cold, check the lid is tight, then label the jar. Store in a cool, dark place.The beans and celery are ready for use after a week.Look at the wonderful kitchen here @itvthismorning pic.twitter.com/8EyMaMHRm7— Thane Prince (@Thanecooks) October 2, 2014 © UTV News OTHER STORIESControversy over Paedophile Hunter showHolly welcomes 'perfect' baby boy YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKELender Wonga to write-off debtsRazor Ruddock's Red-Hot Steak  Comments 0 Comments No comments.

2014-10-02Contest heats up in Thane with major leaders in fr
Contest heats up in Thane with major leaders in fray Oct 03, 2014 | Age Correspondent | mumbai Share With 238 candidates for 18 Assembly constituencies, the Thane district will witness some pulsating contests that will decide the fate of stalwarts like Jitendra Awhad, Ganesh Naik, Eknath Shinde and Ravindra Chavan. With all major parties deciding to contest independently, major leaders in the district have entered the fray. While many have been fielded by their own parties, some who didn’t get tickets, are contesting either from other parties or independently. Shiv Sena dominates Thane city, with the party winning all three seats Thane city, Kopri-Panchpakhadi and Ovala-Majiwada in the last Assembly polls. The party has now also quelled its rebels. In Kopri-Panchpakhadi, party senior leader Anant Tare had rebelled against the party by deciding to contest on a BJP ticket against Mr Shinde. However, he withdrew his candidature after an assurance by the party leadership. In Kalyan Rural too, senior Sena corporator-turned-rebel Ramesh Mhatre, as a BJP candidate, had posed a grave challenge to the official Sena candidate Subhash Bhoir. However, he retreated later after cajoling from top leaders. In Kalyan (west), former city chief Arvind More too has withdrawn his candidature against the Sena candidate. Sena’s chances have also brightened with the diminishing influence of the Raj Thackeray-led-MNS. In Thane city, Shiv Sena has fielded former Narayan Rane loyalist Ravindra Phatak. However, he faces tough competition from Sanjay Kelkar (BJP), Niranjan Davkhare (NCP) and Narayan Pawar (Congress). In the neighbouring Kalwa-Mumbra constituency, NCP leader Jitendra Awhad is riding high on the back of a series of development work carried out in the area. The Shiv Sena has fielded local leader Dashrath Patil against him. In Belapur NCP heavyweight Ganesh Naik has been pitted against Namdeo Bhagat (Congress), Manda Mhatre (BJP, earlier NCP) and Vijay Nahta (Sena) and in Dombivali, BJP MLA Ravindra Chavan will contest against Deepesh Mhatre (Shiv Sena) and Harishchandra Patil (MNS).

Over eight days, 400-odd athletes from 11 countries took part in six disciplines, which included athletics, swimming and water polo, cycling, weightlifting, football and basketball. In contrast, the ongoing Incheon Games has 13,000 athletes taking part in 36 sports, including Asian sports such as kabaddi and sepak takraw, 12 more than the Olympic Games. Things Gandhi knewDilip D’Souza Between 2 pm on October 1 and 10.30 am on October 2, Central government offices in New Delhi remained closed. Why? Because Prime Minister Narendra Modi, concerned about widespread filth in India, is “launching” the nation-wide “Swachchh Bharat” (Clean India) campaign today.

Prepare perfect preserves in time for Christmas with Thane Prince STV 2 October 2014 14:33 BST With Christmas three months away, now is the time to start prepping and pickling if you want a scrumptious selection of chutneys, relishes and sauces to accompany all of that lovely festive grub. As well as providing that extra kick to a bit of roast turkey, packaged in the right way, a jar of chutney can make a wonderful Christmas gift. Thane Prince, queen of preserves and judge of the Big Allotment Challenge is here to show us how to make her favourite preserves as well as gives us some presentation tips so our jars and bottles will meet her impeccable standards. Try the recipes below: Fig and onion marmalade Yield approx. 800g; Keeps 3 months Ingredients 400g red onions
 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 500g dried figs
 2 red chillies
 1 orange
 150g light muscovado sugar
 1 teaspoon sea salt
 250ml cider vinegar Method 1 . Begin by peeling and finely slicing the onions. Place these in a heavy-bottomed, non-reactive pan with the oil. Cover the pan, place it over a
low heat, and cook for 25–30 minutes or until the onions have wilted. 2 . Now remove the lid and turn the heat up a little, cooking the onions until they brown and caramelise, stirring frequently.
 3 . Meanwhile, place some clean jars and their lids on a baking tray and then into the oven preheated to 100C/200F/Gas 2 for 20 minutes. 4 . Start to prepare the other ingredients. Remove the stems from the dried figs, and slice the flesh finely. Remove and discard the chilli stems, and finely chop the chillies. Wash the orange, and dry it. Finely grate the zest, and then halve the orange and squeeze and retain the juice. 5 . Once the onions are a good mid-brown in colour, add the figs, chillies, orange juice and zest, and all the remaining ingredients. 6 . Still over a low heat, and covered with the lid, cook the chutney, stirring often with your wooden spoon, until the figs swell and the sugar has completely dissolved. 7 . Remove the lid, turn the heat up to medium, and simmer for a further 20 or so minutes, cooking the chutney until it is thick. Stir the pan often, especially towards the end of cooking, as it is then that the chutney will start to stick to the bottom and may burn. 8 . To test that the chutney is ready, pull a wooden spoon through the centre of the pan. If both sides stay apart you’re good to go. If they run together cook a little longer. 9 . Take the pan from the heat and let it sit for 5 minutes. Take the baking tray of jars from the oven at the same time. 10 . Pot the chutney into the hot jars, pressing it down well. I use a jam funnel to help with this, but a ladle is fine. Be sure to leave a little head space by filling to the shoulder of the jar and not up the neck. 11 . Screw the lids on loosely and leave to cool. 12 . Once the chutney is cold, check the lids are tight, then label the jars. Store in a cool, dark place. Peach and pomegranate chutney Yield approx. 950g; Keeps 1 year 800g firm, ripe peaches 400g red onions
 50g garlic
 50g fresh root ginger 1 teaspoon cardamom pods
 1 teaspoon black peppercorns 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt 250ml cider vinegar
 400g white granulated sugar 100ml pomegranate molasses Method 1 . Place some clean jars and their lids on a baking tray and then into the oven preheated to 100C/200F/Gas 2 for 20 minutes. 2 . Begin by peeling, stoning and then chopping the peaches and putting these into a heavy-bottomed, non- reactive pan. 3 . Peel and finely chop the onions. Peel the garlic and ginger and chop both finely. 4 . Whizz the cardamom seeds (see above)
with the peppercorns and coarse salt until finely ground. Use a spice mill if you have one, or a processor, or crush thoroughly using a pestle
and mortar. 5 . Add the onion, garlic, ginger and spices, plus the vinegar, to the pan along with the peaches. 6 . Place the pan over a low heat and cover with the lid. Bring up to a low simmer and, stirring from time to time, cook for 10 minutes
to soften the peaches and onions. 7 . Remove
the lid and add the sugar. Still over a low heat,
stir frequently until the sugar is completely dissolved: the mixture should not feel gritty when stirred, and there should be no signs of sugar on the back of your spoon. 8 . Turn up the heat to medium, and cook the chutney at a moderate boil until thick, about 20 minutes. Stir the pan often, especially towards the end of cooking, as it is then that the chutney will start to stick to the bottom and may burn. 9 . To test that the chutney is ready, pull a wooden spoon through the centre
of the pan. If both sides stay apart you’re good
to go. If they run together cook a little longer.
 10 . Take the pan from the heat and let it sit for five minutes. Take the baking tray of jars from the oven at the same time. 11 . Pot the chutney into the hot jars, pressing it down well. Be sure to leave a little headspace by filling to the shoulder of the jar and not up the neck. 12 . Screw the lids on loosely and leave to cool. 13 . Once the chutney is cold, check the lids are tight then label the jars. Store in a cool, dark place. Hot Chilli Jelly Yield approx. 1.6kg for jelly with pepper pulp 1.2kg for jelly with pulp sieved out. Keeps 6 months Ingredients 600g red peppers, prepared weight (about 3 large peppers) 6–10 fresh, hot, red chillies 350ml white or red wine vinegar 1kg jam sugar 1 . Start by preparing the vegetables. Cut the peppers and chillies in half and remove all the seeds, pith and stalks. 2 . Put the prepared flesh in a food processor and blitz until you have a finely chopped mix. 3 . Scrape this into a heavy- bottomed saucepan and pour in the vinegar. 4 . Cover with the lid, place the pan over a low heat and bring the contents up to a simmer. Take the lid off and cook, uncovered, for five minutes.
 5 . Now, if you want to make a clear jelly, set
up your jelly bag in a place where it can remain undisturbed, placing a large bowl underneath. Take the pan and set it close to the bag. Using a ladle spoon the mixture from the pan into the bag. Leave the bag alone, allowing the mixture to drip through for 10–12 hours. Do not squeeze the bag or your jelly will be cloudy. 6 . Or, if you want to retain the pepper pulp in the jelly, simply continue with the recipe. 7 . Put some clean jam jars and lids on a baking tray and then into the oven preheated to 100C/200F/Gas 2 to heat through gently. Place two to three small plates or saucers in the freezer to chill. 8 . Either measure the juice that has dripped overnight and add 100g sugar for each 100ml, or add all the sugar to the softened pepper pulp in the pan. 9 . Put the pan over a low heat and stir until the sugar has fully dissolved. There should be no trace of grittiness in the pan or on the back of the spoon. 10 . Now bring the mixture up to the boil. Cook the jelly at a full rolling boil, one that can’t be stirred down with the spoon, for five minutes.
 11 . Turn off the heat and make your first test for a set. Take a cold plate or saucer from the freezer and spoon on a little jelly. Leave for a minute and then gently push the edge of the mixture. If the surface wrinkles the jelly is ready. 12 . If the jelly is still runny, return the pan to the heat and cook for a further 2 minutes before testing again. Always turn off the heat while testing for a set.
The jelly should only cook for between six and eight minutes. 13 . Once you are happy your jelly will set, turn off the heat and skim off any scum with
a slotted spoon, rinsing it in a bowl of hot water between skims. 14 . Once this is done, stir in any additional flavours, then let the jelly sit for about
5 minutes. Take the baking tray of jars from the oven at the same time. 15 . Pot the jelly into the hot jars. I use a jam funnel to help with this, but a ladle is fine. Top with the lids. 16 . When the jars are cold, label them, and check the lids are firmly screwed on. Store in a cool, dark place. Bloody Mary green beans and celery sticks Yield approx. 500g; Keeps 3 months Ingredients 200g celery
 200g round green beans
 2 tablespoons fine sea salt
 350ml 6% acidity white wine vinegar 1 teaspoon coriander seeds, crushed 2 bay leaves
 1 fresh red chilli, halved
 30ml dry sherry
 15ml Worcestershire sauce Method 1 . Start by preparing the vegetables. Peel the strings from the celery, and top and tail the beans. 2 . Slice the celery into long pieces: they need to be the same length as the beans. 3 . Blanch the vegetables briefly. Bring a big pan of water to the boil, and add the salt. Have ready a bowl of cold water with some ice cubes in. 4 . Add the beans to the boiling water, and cook for 3 minutes, adding the celery after two minutes. 5 . Lift the vegetables from the boiling water, using a slotted spoon, and plunge them into the iced water, swishing them about to help them cool quickly. 6 . Put your chosen jar and its lid into the oven preheated to 100C/200F/Gas 2 for 20 minutes. 7 . Lift the beans and the celery sticks out of the cold water and lay them on a clean, ironed tea-towel or some kitchen paper. Pat them dry. 8 . Now put the vinegar into a pan with the spices. Put over a low heat, and allow the pan to sit on the heat, without boiling, for three to four minutes. 9 . Bring the jar out
of the oven, and rest for five minutes. 10 . Using tongs, pack the vegetables, standing them up as much as you can, into your hot jar. 11 . Bring
the vinegar to the boil, add the sherry and Worcestershire sauce, and pour this into the jar. The vegetables should be completely submerged, by at least 1cm. If not, add more cold vinegar. Scrape all the spices into the jar. 12 . Screw the vinegar-proof lid on loosely, and leave to cool.
 13 . Once the pickle is cold, check the lid is
tight, then label the jar. Store in a cool, dark place. 14 . The beans and celery are ready for use after a week. What do you think? Please Sign-in or Join to leave a comment.

A swanky air-conditioned toilet at Thane railway station is waiting to be inaugurated for more than a month because its drainage is yet to be connected to the civic sewer. Officials from the railway and the Thane Municipal Corporation have simply not been able to meet. A senior railway official from the CR said, “The work has been delayed as there are two agencies involved. Permissions need to be taken, which is causing the delay.” Asked how long would the permissions take, he said, “It can happen in a day or it can take a century.’’ Ideally, it should have been inaugurated on October 2. Thane is the busiest railway station on the Central Railway with 6.25 lakh commuters per day. Toilets on all railway stations are in a mess. They stink and only the desperate use them. When asked about it, railway officials say in private that their job is to run trains not toilets.
