In a bid to defame an organisation, there was a complaint made by a daily vernacular against another on Saturday. A reality show interview was sponsored by one of the dailies in the city. However, a competitor made a complaint to the police that the persons who are conducting the interviews are not genuine. This led to a confusion and the police began to look into it. After verification of facts, it was realised by the police officials that it was just a malicious act in order to defame the organisation which had sponsored the event.
When it comes to sport, Chandigarh is not too far away; be it cricket, hockey or football. Only a few months ago, Chandigarh football had hit headlines when former St Stephen's Football Academy trainee Gurpreet Singh Sandhu - who now plays for East Bengal FC - was called for trials by the English Premier League Club, Wigan Athletic. Now, Chandigarh football has got another boost as Sandesh Jhingan has attracted interest from China. Two League One Chinese clubs have show interest in the player who currently plays for United Sikkim FC. After the Bhutias and Chhetris, it is now to Sandhus and Jhingans who will script new chapter in Indian football in the foreign shores.
The recent reshuffle in the UT Administration led to an upheaval in the departments. So much so that a senior official who was handling Education was also given Transport. Laughingly, he said that earlier he used to interact with principals of schools, and now he also has to interact with bus conductors.
The Senior Golf tourney for senior citizens saw more than 75 golfers from the tricity taking part in the tourney at Chandigarh Golf Club. With the Golf Premier League happening in Amby Valley, Maharashtra and players like Gaganjeet Bhullar being picked up in the auction by the Punjab team, the senior golfers were seen having a laugh over teams showing an interest in them next year. "Who knows if we do well here, the teams can pick up," quipped a senior golfer. Now that's called confidence.
People are adopting innovative measures to keep a check on rising incidents of theft in Panchkula. Not only have the residents' welfare associations of the city enhanced private security in the colonies with guards regularly patrolling in Panchkula, but some of the families are even hiring the services of private security companies to stay safe. Residents have subscribed to the services of private security service companies and in case a family is out and the CCTV captures any movement at the house the private company gets alerted and within minutes the personnel arrive to find out if anything was wrong. Even professionals like doctors have hired the services of private companies and are guarding their clinics with sensors and CCTVs.
Heritage versus safety?
One of the Punjab and Haryana High Court judges said to the UT Administration that when its officials are only interested in preserving the heritage of the city and have no time to ensure the safety of the school children, its chief architecture should start designing the heritage bus. The judge further said that the chief architect can take the idea of the heritage bus from a museum.
The senior deputy mayor Rana Kashmiri Devi, who was elected recently, is rarely seen in her office. The Congress councillor, who is a first timer in the civic body, was not known to be active in the affairs of the MC. While she became the chosen candidate of the Congress and managed to win the election, her office mostly remains vacant with the Mayor and deputy Mayor handling the residents who come to meet.
