Cricket News :- Win or Lose, Cricket Goes On

There is always adulation, praise, flower garlands and endless celebration coming with wins. The reverse seems true for the Indian cricket team as in the just concluded T20 world cup. Heartaches and disappointment for India coming close but missing on the T20 title by a whisker to Sri Lanka seem to open the raw emotional side of tirade, brickbats and only one player seems to blame, Yuvraj Singh.

India had amazing performance in the cricket tournament and fan expectations were no less. Yet an equally inspired opposition in Sri Lanka having come close on no less than four occasions seemed determined to bury the pain of past defeats and win the prestigious crown.

India lifted the ICC T20 world cup inaugural edition 2007 in South Africa crowning excellent run of form and performance that garnered India wholesome praise. Consistent performance that lasted up to lifting the cricket world cup in 2011 and ICC champion’s trophy in 2013. These were great moments and times for the Indian cricket fan to revel in the team’s success and victory. 

Yuvraj Singh was prominent in all the victories and made his team achieve high success despite personal health battles with dreaded cancer. In one cricket tournament defeat the brickbats and sarcasm seem bared. Memory is too short for the cricket obsessed Indian fan.

Direct Taxes Code News in Hindi

Taxes are financial charges by government necessary for revenue collection and budgeting for national programs and actions. They are either directly or indirectly imposed for the benefit of citizens or jurisdictions upon which they are levied. But sometimes they become eyebrow raisers for the salaried and earning members of any working class. They are meant to raise revenue through which government can avail services and goods to the general public. They are also often times a source for heartburn and ill feeling for working class and salaried employees as they interpreted taking away purchasing power without significant results or proof of benefit in return. 

The government of India through its finance ministry proposes new direct taxes code that will highly target the high net worth individuals while retaining the tax levels for other classes. There are significant highlights to this new proposed amendment to the more than half a century tax law.

Significant Highlights of Proposed Direct Tax Code
-Higher direct tax for high Net worth Individuals
-High direct tax levy of 35% on Individuals and the Hindu undivided family with annual taxable income above Rs 10 crore
-Additional tax burden on dividend income above Rs 1 crore at 10%
-High dividend distribution tax to be pegged at 15% as stipulated in the income tax act and direct tax bill 2010

Cricket Hindi News Semifinals Beckon India in T-20 World Cup

‘The cast for beautiful romantic movie will always depend on a solid script’. This Indian cricket team seems to be on a roll in the ongoing T-20 cricket world cup tournament in Bangladesh. Cricket is passionately played in India and finds immense admiration as a national pass time in all Indian sentiment and life. The recent playing form of Indian cricket team in some formats of the game may not be anything to write home about having faced successive defeats in foreign test tournaments. Yet with the advent of the T-20 world cup things are looking up and the team is performing

Indian Cricket Team Exploits in Bangladesh include three straight victories on prominent rivals Pakistan, West Indies and Bangladesh. This sets India for a fancy semifinal clash with the redoubtable Australians. With the rankling of some issues administratively in Indian cricket it would have seemed like a doubtful or headache encounter. Yet given the penchant or perhaps audacity and faith in great batting, fielding and bowling skills of an emergent and resurgent Indian side there is hope for juicy encounter even for the Australian Match.

The youthful combination of experience and skill is giving India options in the build-up of the side especially after prominent retirement of legends like Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid and bringing on board youthful inspiring talent. With the arrival, promise and delivery of a few talents like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh and the epitome of cool captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni the sky seems the limit.

News about AAP’s Varanasi Rally Today

Most Indians by now have read and come to know who Arvind Kejriwal is, what AAP stands for and its firebrand sense of political dispense. But greater, Varanasi, on the banks of the well-known holy Ganga River in Uttar Pradesh, India is a spiritually significant city not just in Hinduism but as a spiritual destination. Ganga Ghats inspire millions of devotees to do pilgrimage and take holy baths in the sacred river.

Based on this backdrop a new brand of Indian politics (AAP), the city is witness to a game of strange turns and fortunes in the ongoing 2014 Indian general election.  AAP rally for referendum on Varanasi seat and staking claim to challenge leading political heavyweight’s Narandra Modi. Politics has always been christened as a game or riddle of strange bed fellows.

AAP’s chief and as a new political party in Indian politics would not occupy center stage of the ongoing 2014 Indian elections without alluding to this catchy phrase. Rajnarain Smarak Park, Beniya Bagh, Varanasi today opens a new stage. As the sacred Ganga opens tremendous emotional quotient in the lives of ordinary marginalized for hope of their identity not being drowned out in the course of elite political debates. Perhaps this referendum like approach which worked to precision in New Delhi assembly polls might just as well strike home here.

With symbols as humble or down to earth as a broom, this strikes a chord for many of the illiterate and poor for robust and better access to political fortunes. There is that which begs a rational analysis of what the exact political ground looks like. The relevance will await the voters casting ballots and taking a call on their destiny.

Role of News & Media in Society

News & Media has often played a significant role in shaping the contours (values, beliefs and aspirations) of any society. The changing nature of today’s world and the need for fast mechanisms to inform and educate people has put media at the forefront of this endeavor. With the ability to relay information in a short span of time and duration, media has deeply impacted and affected the transformation of any society in present times.
What is the Actual Role of Media in Society?


-Promote useful flow of information
Without a systematic flow and dispensing of information society would ultimately degenerate into anarchy and disorder. 

-Promote values, traditions and beliefs
Each media agency or platform is governed by a set of values that try to harmonies the collective good of the society it exists in. 

-Promote Public Accountability
We happen to see misuse and abuse of power by elected and appointed public representatives and public servants. 

-Public Watchdog
In a similar way being a public watchdog will institute mechanisms to enhance responsiveness of the governments especially in democracies where the media has a lot of influence in projecting government policy, programs, and channels for redressal and mechanism for good governance. 

-Entertainment and Education
The 24 hour news channels have incorporated programming to break from the monotony of constant and persistent news. 

-Ethics, Integrity and Dignity
There are fundamental principles which every person or a people will uphold sacredly. This calls for a creation of codes of conduct and behavior that will not be surpassed nor overlooked.

About News Reportage?

News the world over is a blend, fusion and mix of flavor and ingredients to get informative and compelling news read or watch or listen. In some news organizations the attempt or effort is not to draw or gain mileage (opportunity) from an issues compelling stance in the public domain or discourse rather to have an impacting publication that will last in the minds of the public or readership for its morally binding and conscience awakening. For that in itself is the foundation for sustainable News Reportage.

In as far collecting and reporting news is concerned the real compelling imperative is to offer the truth and substance of the news as it comes. Hindi News is something that will affect the imagination and decision making process and therefore care is given to its impact and subsequent changes it could bring to the community or society.

The accountability and responsibility must always lie at a vertical premium (closer to reality) to negate negative repercussions. News can delight, bewilder and at the same time shock for the sheer unbelievability of its tone and reality.
