From a monthly salary of Rs.6,000, Sushil Kumar has hit the jackpot by winning Rs.5 crore ($1 million) on the game show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati 5′. He says he will now prepare for the civil services – something he had stopped dreaming about due to his financial situation earlier.
"Everything seems completely different. The feeling is yet to sink in. I had never thought I would be able to win Rs.5 crore," Kumar, 27, told us on phone from Mumbai.
This was Kumar's second attempt at making it to the hot seat which turned into a life-changing moment for him – he entered the show with the aim of winning Rs.2,500,000. He won 20 times that.
"I came to the show with the mindset that I would go back home with at least Rs.2,500,000 but by god's grace I have won Rs.5 crore. Even after deducting the tax, I know I would get at least Rs.3.5 crore which is enough for me," he said.
Before becoming a Crorepati, Kumar, who hails from East Champaran in Bihar, used to work as a computer operator. So winning the game show is a big moment in his life.
"Ever since I have won, I am stormed with calls from family and friends and even from those whom I have rarely met. It's a fabulous feeling. I didn't prepare much for the show. I just had an idea of what could be asked and did a little preparation with whatever books I had," he said.
Kumar, who is married, lives in a big joint family – he has five brothers, five nieces and a nephew.
"First of all, I would build my new house. Then my younger brother is working with a garment shop and earns merely Rs.1,500 per month. I would help him to start a new business so that he gets settled in life. I am also planning to help my elder brother to get a new shop," he added.
An MA in psychology, Kumar wanted to appear for the civil services examination, but the financial crunch didn't allow him to pursue his dreams.
"I had so many dreams, but my financial condition didn't allow me to pursue them; hence I stopped dreaming. I got a job where I could earn Rs.6,000 per month and was satisfied as I had responsibilities over my shoulder.

RTA Post :
With a view to avoiding inconvenience to those coming for various works to the Road Transport Authority (RTA) office in Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy districts, officials have come out with a novel idea of `RTA Post'.
All you need to do is purchase a `RTA Post' envelope, which costs Rs. 10, fill in the address to which the document is to be delivered and the contact number and submit it at the RTA office. The Transport Department will undertake the delivery of the document at the given address
Recent changes : RTA post Scheme which was introduced in Hyd and RR districts earlier has been replaced with a new system, where in postal fee of Rs. 25/- will be collected from all the applicants, irrespective of their transactions( whether licence, Registration etc) and the processed document will be sent through speed post, to the address mentioned in application.
This will also prevent applicants from obtaining documents, with fake addresses.
In RTA post scheme, some people provided address, which was not mentioned in their application.
In the new scheme, if any applicant fails to obtain document or if document is returned undelivered, the applicant should approach the RTA office, concerned, and should produce address proof for obtaining document.
In any case, all documents are sent through speed post now
In case documents are lost in transit, the department will bear the cost of regeneration and re-delivery of the document. In case of delay in receipt of document, one can call on the toll-free number - 1074. The documents will be despatched within a day of being processed.

India's Internet users will increase fivefold by 2015, and more than three-quarters of them will choose mobile access.
Almost 1,500 years ago, Indian mathematicians, including Aryabhata, Brahmagupta, and Pingala, transformed mathematics by conceiving the rules of the binary numeral system. While those rules today lie at the heart of the code powering the Internet, India has relatively few Internet users: just 7 percent of its population is connected to the Web, compared with 32 percent in China and 77 percent in the United States.
It's no secret that infrastructure development in India is a real challenge.
McKinsey research on the country's 11th five-year economic plan2 suggests that while the government has spent what it intended to, infrastructure (such as electricity connections and road building) is significantly behind schedule. More troubling
is the reason: beyond the frequently mentioned issue of land ownership, delays in building "hard" infrastructure often stem from a lack of "soft" infrastructure, such as educated, skilled workers with project-management capabilities. These delays should encourage the leap to mobile-Internet access, perhaps delivered by the private sector. Mobile operators are aggressively
rolling out networks across the country, including an impending 3G network, following recent auctions in which companies spent almost $30 billion acquiring telecommunications spectrum.
The government also is making large investments to overcome other hurdles. In particular, it is sponsoring efforts to give citizens unique identification numbers that will, for instance, allow identities to be authenticated with mobile devices. That will facilitate wireless banking and other services, such as e-health care. In addition, the ability to identify all citizens means that
subsidies and incentives can be delivered to them efficiently. The National Rural Employment Guarantee Authority, for example, is supposed to distribute $8.5 billion to citizens in 2011. In the past, significant portions of such funds have failed to reach the recipients. The digital opportunity may substantially eliminate this problem, and citizens spurred by the prospect of
finally getting what's due to them should make the leap to mobile-Internet services such as e-commerce. Additionally, our research on e-payments has uncovered significant opportunities to drive down costs.
Embracing the digital opportunity
The most formidable hurdle to the realization of India's digital promise is finding a sustainable way to deliver attractive returns for content companies at affordable prices for consumers. India differs from other Asian mobile-Internet leaders, such as Japan and even China, where access charges generate enough revenue for operators to finance the ongoing creation of value-added services. India's telecom industry structure and poorer population are putting pressure on access revenue, and it's unclear whether telecommunications companies will be able to extract sufficient profits from their mobile value-added services and
entertainment or from their nascent local-advertising-driven networks to warrant continued large investments. To overcome this issue, private and public companies, as well as India's government, must address two priorities.
Mobile content and services
The first step toward generating more profits from content and services is the creation of offerings that are compelling and easy to access and use, much like iPhone applications. That will require companies to raise their game in editing, visual merchandising, and marketing. More local-language content also is required, and it should be presented in new ways: voice and single-touch mobile-Internet access are essential, particularly to overcome illiteracy and a lack of familiarity with the Internet.
Making money from content
specific contexts, such as shopping coupons received by mobile devices as consumers pass certain stores.
All participants—public and private—have a role in unleashing the digital revolution's true potential. Governments can promote access, undertake thoughtful regulation and oversight, and deliver public services such as information, health care, subsidies, and incentives. Banks and financial-services companies can enhance their online presence to build real-time, personalized relationships with customers. Insurance companies can address their high-cost, multilayered business systems and examine
opportunities—for example, using the Internet to deliver product information and training more effectively. Advertising agencies can adopt new approaches to developing concepts, pricing, and measurements of effectiveness. And marketers can better address the way consumers now make purchasing decisions, finding new analytical approaches to the allocation of spending and the management of "buzz" and word of mouth.
Binary mathematics lies behind the technology that underpins the Internet. After more than 1,500 years, India could again lead the world in a technological revolution. The consumer demand exists. The opportunity is real. Is India up to the challenge?

Real Time Train Information System (RTIS) based on 'SIMRAN' becomes Functional from 19TH October 2011
In a major passenger friendly move, Indian Railways has opened the first phase of the Real Train Information System (RTIS) to public for accurate train tracking thus heralding a new era of application of advanced communication and information technologies in various Railway related activities.
This new tracking system is based on Satellite Imaging for Rail Navigation (SIMRAN) and has been developed jointly by the Ministry of Railways' Research arm namely Research, Design and Standards Organization (RDSO), Lucknow and noted engineering institute, IIT, Kanpur.
The trains covered for this first phase are following 6-pair of trains:
| || |
Howrah - N Delhi Rajdhani
| || |
N Delhi - Howrah Rajdhani
| || |
Howrah - N Delhi Rajdhani
| || |
N Delhi - Howrah Rajdhani

N Delhi - Mumbai Central Rajdhani
| || |
Mumbai Central - Nizamuddin A K Rajdhani
| || |
Nizamuddin - Mumbai Central A K Rajdhani
Lucknow - N Delhi Shatabdi
N Delhi - Lucknow Shatabdi
This facility will provide accurate train running information on a click of button or through SMS and will overcome limitations of the existing train information dissemination through 139 which is mainly dependent on manual collection and feeding.
RTIS system deployed in the trains mentioned above will provide the following information to public/passengers:
(i) Train locations.
(ii) Train running position (i.e. whether train is running on time or if running late and by how much.
(iii) Train location with respect to next stopping station in terms of kms.
This information will be available on website "http://www.simran.in".
Public may also get the train running information through SMS by sending a text message " <train number>" to mobile number 09415139139. A typical message received by passenger say for train number 12004, a Shatabdi Exp. train, is as under:-
"On 19/10/2011 10:00, Train 12004 N Delhi – Lucknow Shat. is running at 129 kmph near Bharthana, 126 km from KANPUR CENTRAL. Presently Right on time".
The above message is actual reply received to a SMS query.
Ministry of Railways has decided to implement RTIS to track all trains, passenger as well as freight trains in a phase manner. For this, a work has been approved in Railway Budget 2011-12 at a cost of Rs. 110.0crore. The project is likely to be completed by December 2012.
Railways Take Measures to Prevent Misuse of 'Tatkal' Scheme
With a view to reduce the chances of misuse of e-ticketing facility by IRCTC agent, Indian Railways has decided to stop Quick Book Option and cash card booking between 8 AM to 9 AM. Further, individual users are permitted to book only two tickets between 8 AM to 9 AM.
Access to 'Tatkal' booking to the agents booking through internet has been denied during the opening hours of reservation in the morning between 8 AM to 9 AM.
The provision of carrying one of the eight prescribed identity cards by any one of the passengers booked on 'Tatkal' ticket, introduced from 11th February 2011 to prevent transfer of 'Tatkal' tickets.
Facility of change of name is not permissible on 'Tatkal' tickets.
Regular checks are conducted by senior officials at Reservation Offices particularly during opening hours in the morning to check the activities of touts and other unscrupulous elements.
The load of IRCTC's server has been augmented to ensure easy accessibility to passengers booking tickets through internet.
Refund rules have been made stringent to discourage frivolous and proxy bookings.
The crux of Kesavanand Bharati & Golaknath etc. cases...
Here goes the brief list (case name, year and what did the Supreme court ruled in that case and how parliament reacted to it?)
Shankari Prasad /1951SC said: yes Government can aquire private property for public causeyes parliament can amend fundamental rights
Golaknath v Punjab 1967Supreme court reverts from previous judgment- now Supreme court says
To counter this SC judgement, Parliament passes 24th amendment in '71 sayingyes parliament can amend or take away any Fund.right
Keshvanand Bharti vs Keral /73Now again SC changes its position.SC says : yes, parliament can amended fundamental rights but it cannot change the BASIC structure of the Constitution.*for explanation of basic structure, refer to Laxmikanth's Polity book*parliament again makes 42nd amendment to counter this- with following two provisions.1. Constitutional amendment cannot be challenged in courts2. Parliament can amend anything and everything of the Constitution , even if it is against the fundamental rights.
Minerawa Mills /80SC rejects above 42nd amendment, because it violated the basic structure of Constitution.There are some other important cases too: (list is not exhaustive)

Possible change in 2012 mains exam? Will there be optional subjects?
The panic mails, I'm recieving after the article in The Hindu about 'possible change in mains exam from 2012"
Since 2007, I've been hearing following rumors.
^These are some of recommendations of various Committees and Commissions appointed by Government and UPSC.
For some reason, folks in Delhi keep planting these stories at regular interval. Earlier the rumor-market was hot about age and attempt limit, until some of them finally figured out that since it is a politically sensitive issue, UPSC is unlikely to play with age and attempt limit. So you don't hear that rumor much. But now the market is switched to 'whether there will be optional subjects in 2012 or not?"
You'll find lot of people saying "my insider sources in UPSC tell me this and that" but if there is any real-change in mains exam, it can be confirmed by following two sources only
1. For 2012's exam, the official notification of UPSC will be released somewhere in December 2011 or January 2012. That notification will set the rules of the exam: syllabus and everything, whether there will be optional subjects or not.
2. If UPSC chairman thinks that it important to notify people in advance, he may release a press statement, few months before. (like they did in 2010, to tell people about the upcoming CSAT change in 2011.)
My personal take on this matter is, IF at all there is any change in mains exam, the UPSC will release a press-statement only after this 2011's mains exam is concluded. (Somewhere in November 2011.) Otherwise directly wait for the official notification for 2012's exam (In December 2011 or January 2012).
Unfortunately, UPSC doesn't show haste in confirming or denying the rumors, result-date speculations, or cut-off marks. Don't know reason: whether it is incompetence or pure sadistic pleasure.
Now the questions
Should I goto Delhi for coaching of xyz optional subject or not, given these rumor-mongering?Well, Delhi coaching is a big investment (above Rs.50,000/-). So before you put your time and money in it, you might want to wait till the official confirmation or rejection comes out about optional subjects.
I bought the books for optional subjects, what now, should I read them or not?If your optional subject is Public Administration, political science, socio, geography, history etc.- it wouldn't hurt doing a cursory reading of those books. Because in any case whatever you read, will help you somewhere in Essay, GS and interview.
Should I wait for another year, till the optional are out?Very difficult question. Answer depends on many things such as your age-attempt limit, financial position and backup plans etc.
I'm in high-school or college right now and going to appear in 2015/16....
"Inflation is the overall or specific increase in the cost of a good or service."
Thank you, Mr. Dictionary.
Inflation is when your mom or dad complains about the prices they have to pay nowadays compared to what they paid when they were a younger.
Today, the biggest concern facing the country is rising prices. There is uproar in Parliament as the aam aadmi is worst hit by skyrocketing prices.
Inflation's effects on an economy are various
1. Decrease in the real value of money
2. Discourage investment and savings, slowing down of growth
3. Shortages of goods
Central banks can adjust nominal interest rates and encourage investment in non-monetary capital projects.
Reasons For Inflation:
Economists attribute inflation to a demand-pull theory. According to this, if there is a huge demand for products in all sectors, it results in a shortage of goods. Thus prices of commodities shoot up.
Another reason for inflation is the cost-push theory. It says that labour groups also trigger inflation. When wages for labourers are increased, producers raise the prices of products to make up for salary hike.
Economists generally agree that high rates of inflation, are caused by an excessive growth of the money supply, fluctuations in real demand for goods and services
Today, most mainstream economists favor a low, steady rate of inflation.
The task of keeping the rate of inflation low and stable is usually given to monetary authorities. Generally, these monetary authorities are the central banks that control the size of the money supply through the setting of interest rates.
Inflation - India
India's headline inflation climbed to 9.78% in August from a year ago, and has hovered over 9% in the past many months, despite the RBI raising rates a dozen times in the last 18 months.
India is not the only country that has gone down with the concerns of inflation.
Similar concerns are being shared by other Asian economies such as China, Indonesia and Thailand.
For many emerging nations that boast enviable rates of growth, there is a cautionary tale in India, which is paying the price for letting inflation infect its economy.
Reserve Bank of India, is regularly meeting to decide whether to edge up its benchmark interest rate in the continuing tug-of-war between rising inflation and sliding growth.
Policy makers could lift rates to snuff out inflation, but they risk plunging decelerating economies into a serious slowdown.
Inflation in September 2011 in India is termed as "grave" by finance minister Pranab Mukherjee
1. Food inflation- 9.13%
2. Non-food articles, 12.89%
3. Fuel and power 14.69%
Experts said the food inflation may decline only later this year.
KASSA India director Siddharth Shankar said, "Global slowdown and RBI's tight monetary policy will keep a cap on the non-food inflation numbers."
The RBI has already hiked policy rates 12 times since March, 2010, to tame demand and curb inflation.
Near double-digit inflation, far exceeding official forecasts, has forced the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to continue raising rates even as growth slows and developed economies sink deeper into fiscal problems.
What contributed to inflation?
The Greek economy is about to collapse, others are teetering on the brink, the euro is stumbling into the valley of death, the rupee is tumbling against the dollar, making imports –most significantly, of oil—costlier, which will certainly raise prices.
What is the government doing?
The policy paralysis that has affected the Indian government over the last two years is astonishing by any measure.
All that one can make of the UPA is that it desperately wants to win the next general elections. Which, it has decided, entails announcing massive social sector schemes.
Have those schemes worked? No. Forget the endemic corruption you can't even reach the minimum monthly earnings to a day labourer under the MNREGA scheme in large parts of India, for the simple reason that the roads to and from his village exist only on paper.
Our basic infrastructure is still in shambles, our power sector remains essentially a hungry parasite on our honest incomes, 40 per cent of our food still rots on the way to market—and these facts have been mentioned and reported endlessly and not changed a whit in the last 20 years. But a clueless paralysis cannot know shame.
What it surely realizes is that Government will not be able to meet its fiscal deficit targets (which will only stoke inflation), that it will not be able to raise Rs. 40,000 crore through disinvestment in this financial year, that it does not have the money to spend what is needed in the infrastructure sector, and that its strategy to get prices down will get nowhere
Impact of Inflation
Its rightly said by Subbarao (RBI Governor) High Inflation will hurt growth.
What should be done?
Management of inflation has to be a globally coordinated effort.
The main reason why India, China and many other countries are facing high inflation is because USA is printing lot of dollars. Raising interest rate or raising bank reserve ratios does not solve this root problem,
One way to reduce inflation significantly in these countries is to allow the local currency to strengthen. If India strengthens the Indian rupee by 20%, inflation would fall.
Inflation benefits the debtors. Indian government is the biggest debtor in the country. Is the government really interested in reducing inflation?

Once there was a king who received a gift of two magnificent falcons from
Arabia. They were peregrine falcons, the most beautiful birds he had ever
seen. He gave the precious birds to his head falconer to be trained.
Months passed and one day the head falconer informed the king that though
one of the falcons was flying majestically, soaring high in the sky, the
other bird had not moved from its branch since the day it had arrived.
The king summoned healers and sorcerers from all the land to tend to the
falcon, but no one could make the bird fly. He presented the task to the
member of his court, but the next day, the king saw through the palace
window that the bird had still not moved from its perch. Having tried
everything else, the king thought to himself, "May be I need someone more
familiar with the countryside to understand the nature of this problem." So
he cried out to his court, "Go and get a farmer."
In the morning, the king was thrilled to see the falcon soaring high above
the palace gardens. He said to his court, "Bring me the doer of this

to the glory of flight.
