4 INDIAN MONTHLY | MAY 2016 How Modi is getting India to save on electricity peak hours, a 5,520-tonne drop in daily carbon emission and domestic savings of Rs 2.71 crore (approx. half a million) every day. The task of operating and maintaining the street lights falls under the jurisdiction of Urban Local Bodies (ULB), or municipalities. As most of the ULBs were not in a position to bear the high initial capital cost by themselves, four central government power utilities joined hands to set up a company Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL). Under the service model chosen, the ULBs do not have to make any upfront investments for installing the LED street lights, as EESL does it for them. The investment is also recovered from a portion of the savings accrued by the ULBs (on account of lower electricity bills) over a period of seven years, which means the ULBs start saving money right from the initial stage. The Prime Minister coined this Programme as a people’s movement which will work towards the conservation of energy and thus benefit the environment. He also added by saying that with this plan India will move a step forward in the global initiative for improving environment. He believes, India will surely contribute substantially towards a cleaner and greener planet through conservation of energy. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is leaving no stone unturned and trying his best to bring positive changes to India in each and every aspect. In January this year Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched “The National Programme for LED-based Home and Street Lighting”. He addressed this initiative as “Prakash Path” (Way to Light). Modi and his team came up with this scheme where India would save approximately $7 billion a year. The ruling government claims the “LED” technology would bring a drastic improvement as it would let India to save money. India’s energy minister Mr. Piyush Goyal, stated that country’s intention to replace all its conventional streetlights with LED ones, with the underlying logic being that conserving power is more economical than producing more… At its inception, the plan was to cover 100 cities by March 2017 and the remaining ones by March 2019, targeting 770 million bulbs and 35 million street lights. However, it seems street lights will be upgraded to LED ahead of schedule. Lighting demands 18% of the electricity consumed in India. This is against a global average of just 13%. LED adoption on a larger scale will bring the figure for India down to the global average, significantly cutting down the expensive need to build more energy plants. With The National Programme for LED, a staggering 138775 kilowatts of energy is saved every day. This includes a cut in 645 megawatts of power during www.indianmonthly.com.au

MAY 2016 | INDIAN MONTHLY 5 Australian woman traces her sperm donor and marries him Anderson’s sperm from five possible sperm donors because she liked that he listed himself as “happy and healthy”. Soon after their daughters first birthday, Aminah Hart decided to try to track down the father of her child. She started the search for Scott through internet, few days later she figured out the identity based on his name and profession as a cattle breeder and his role as football coach. Rather than making an attempt to contact Scott directly she opted to get in touch with the IVF registration. Though, legally Scott wasn’t allowed to meet Leila until she turned 18 but agreed, especially after he received a photo of his baby and saw how much she looked like both him and his four other children from two previous marriages. When asked, Anderson said, “Meeting Leila was Surreal, I was looking at this little girl – she looks like my other kids and like me. Blonde hair, blue eyes. It was overwhelming at the start. It wasn’t really my daughter, but it was. At first, I didn’t know Aminah so I didn’t show much emotion.” Ms Hart added, “It was nervous and we were very tentative, but the rapport was really easy. The first thing for me was, phew he’s a nice guy.” Soon after the first meeting, parents of Leila decided that they would meet once a month and then once a week, even though Scott lived 80 miles away from Melbourne where Leila lived with her mom. Aminah and Scott, both separated from their partners and a mutual attraction developed, though Mr Andersen was apprehensive because “I thought she was totally out of my league”. One fine day, Aminah and Scott got trapped on the island due to a road closure, they went for a beer and she told him: “I think you should kiss me.” It took another five minutes or so, but the pair finally embraced. So, romance was in the air, the pair was madly inclined towards each other. “I don’t have a lot of experience with farmers and so I was really intrigued and interested in his life”, Hart added. The pair got engaged during a holiday in Thailand, after Mr Andersen went to buy milk for Leila in a village and returned with a ring for Ms Hart. “Maybe we’re rushing it. Who knows? We’ve both got a track record of marriages that have ended. But it just feels right – I feel very certain of that. None of this has been at all conventional. We certainly are a very modern family.” Scott Anderson said. Recently it was reported by the couple that they have married each other and celebrating life together. A London born Australian woman, Aminah conceived a baby through an IVF procedure couple of years ago. Aminah Hart, who has been married once had two boys but unfortunately lost both of them due to a rare genetic disorder that only effects boys. At the age of 42 she decided to try IVF and little did she know that she would sweep off her feet with her sperm donor. An unlikely “back to front love story” that touched many hearts all around the globe and has attracted the interest of Hollywood filmmakers as well , Aminah Hart, now 45, only met her husbandto-be after she had given birth to their daughter Leila. Ms Hart an advertising professional, had selected Scott Andersen, an Australian cattle farmer who lives on an island off the south coast. Aminah picked www.indianmonthly.com.au

MAY 2016 | INDIAN MONTHLY 7 Rajani - The first Female Indian Detective “I was never scared of anything. I knew from the start that the one thing we are all afraid of is death. And that can come in any way. You can die while sitting in the living room if the ceiling falls…so there is actually nothing to be scared of,” she says. A young bright college girl who suddenly became interested in investigation. Rather than getting into any simple career Rajani opted to be a detective. She mentioned, “I realized that if you look around carefully, you will find many problems and mysteries in many houses. Problems that people can’t solve themselves and need external help with. But they don’t have any evidence and don’t know where to go. That’s when an investigator comes into the picture.” The first case she solved wasn’t one that was formally handed to her in her office. It was born out of her curiosity about changes in the behavior of one of her friends in college. On keeping an eye on her for some time, I found she was getting involved in some illicit activities that her parents weren’t aware of. Moreover, there were some untrustworthy men who were taking advantage of her. Rajani informed her friend’s parents and helped her get back to leading a normal life. It was this girl’s father who, for the first time, asked Rajani if she was a spy. And that was when she thought of becoming one. Born and brought up in a middle class family in Thane, Rajani studied Marathi literature at Ruparel College. After that she took a temporary job and worked there for three months before setting up her agency. While her father didn’t support this decision in the beginning, her mother was always by her side. “My father said that this is not a suitable field for women. But my mom knew I had been very stubborn since I was young. She just said that I should be allowed to do whatever I want to do.” For Rajani, one of the most memorable cases she solved is the one in which she had to live in a stranger’s house as a servant for six months; at the end of this period, a murderer was arrested. “There were reports that a woman hired someone to kill her husband because she was involved in an extra-marital affair. She later killed her son too because he was suspicious about her. The police suspected that this woman’s lover was the murderer, but they could not find him. That was when I was asked to intervene,” she recounts. She started keeping an eye on the suspect’s house but the said man used to come home only at night and she could not find out a lot about him. So Rajani decided she had to find a way to enter the house. She spoke to the domestic help, pretending to be someone in desperate need of work. The next day, she was able to enter the suspect’s house as a servant. “After I had worked in that house for some time, the woman fainted one day. I gave her medicines and called the doctor. She was very happy with my work and decided to keep me there as a caretaker,” she recounts. Finally, when the lover came, the two had a big fight and the woman asked him not to return there because she feared people were spying on them. Rajani knew that if he went away this time, they would never be able to catch him. She had to find a way to inform the police but she didn’t have a mobile phone back then. So, she went into the kitchen and dropped a knife on her feet. Seeing the blood, the woman asked her to go to the doctor downstairs. She hurried out, informed the police, and the suspect was arrested within 20 minutes. In another case, a woman at her workplace was very concerned because someone was stealing jewellery from her place at regular intervals, ever since one of her three sons got married. She suspected that her daughter-in-law was involved but didn’t want to say anything until she was sure. Rajani volunteered to help and started keeping a watch on her house. She found that after everyone used to leave the house, it was one of her sons who would steal the jewellery and take it to his friend’s house. Rajani has played many different roles to solve several cases till now – that of a maidservant, a blind woman, a pregnant woman, a street vendor, etc. She does whatever it takes to solve a case. The most common cases she has solved include those to do with couples who don’t trust each other, cases of extra marital affairs, finding details about a girl or a boy before a marriage is arranged, etc. “I also try and support people through their tough times, give them courage, and inspire them to move forward. This way, I am able to do some social service as well,” smiles Rajani. She feels that the work of a detective today has become quite easy because of the availability of modern equipment like better recorders, bugs, spy cameras, and so much more. “If you want to do something, you should do it. There should be no shame in doing any work you are passionate about. Self-confidence, courage, and stubbornness – these are the things that take you a long way. With these, women can do anything that they set their minds to,” she concludes. www.indianmonthly.com.au

8 INDIAN MONTHLY | MAY 2016 Valuable discussion with MP Joanna Ryan & MP Tim Watts over the issues that International Students faces in Victoria Recently, a forum was organized especially to discuss the issues that international students faces in Victoria with MP Joanna Ryan and MP Tim Watts. Around quite a number of gathering, current students, ex-students, migration agents all participated in a serious and healthy discussion. The forum emphasized on many prominent issues related to international students. To start with one of the many issues English Language Test Exam (IELTS, PTE, TOEFEL etc) is one of the major problem which students are facing in Australia. Many invited students at the forum constantly expressed their anger and disappointment towards the English testing system. Students were keen to present their result score cards of their English test where there is a massive variation and inconsistency in their test results. On an average each student attempts approximately 5-7 times to get their required score. Students also added, testing system’s different module marking is also quite unsympathetically biased, they raised a concern of exploiting students for not giving them scores in one attempt as they know students would pay more for more attempts. Group of students attending the forum made a plea to the MP’s to look into the matter where students are exploited by these ‘English Testing Business Model’ running in the country. Another point that was raised as an alarm was biased marking system on which education providers works. Many students stated that private collages takes unjustified advantage of international students and differentiate in marking their assignments. A student said that many of my cofellows failed in their units because they don’t get to spend much time talking to their lecturers and eventually their fail the unit by few marks. In such cases when students approach the College, they comment in favor of the lecturers as they have a policy where in such cases students need to re appear in the failed unit and pay the fee again. Short while ago, Public Transport Victoria started giving out travel concessions to students, International and local both but unfortunately international Masters students were not included in giving out concession travel cards. People presented at the forum raised this issue as being unbiased towards students studying Master courses in Victoria. Another important issue which came into limelight was providing Job assistance to international students. It was asserted that many students didn’t succeed to find a job without any help of friends but there are no such associations where students can approach for help. Migration agents were also attending the forum revealed that students are coming to Australia with so much expectations but when they reach here and see a different picture altogether they get so dis hearten with the type of things offered to them in terms of Visa rules, English language test requirements, no job assistance, troubles coping with colleges, expensive accommodation, biased travel fares etc. Attendees also notified respected MP’s that as per the current situation in Australia, students are unhappy and giving out the negative feedback in their respective home countries and students tell their family and friends to look for another countries over Australia for higher education. In conclusion to all the discussions MP Tim Watts and MP Joanna Ryan acknowledged the issues going around with international students by stating that Australia’s education system is one of the key factors including into the economy and every student is important and valuable to the country. Tim Watts included “I have been an international student myself in the United States and I can easily relate to every student living in Australia.” Joanna Ryan added, IELTS issue is something that we must need to work on and who all are using this as a business model need to be asked for answers. She calmed students by saying that every students is important for Australia and we respect the hard work every student is putting into the development of the country. www.indianmonthly.com.au

MAY 2016 | INDIAN MONTHLY 9 South India’s first Test Tube Baby becomes a Mother What made that moment even more special is that both mother and daughter were brought into this world by the same doctor, Dr. Kamala Selveraj and at the same hospital where the first south Indian test tube baby was born. As a sweet gesture and respect, 24 years ago Kamala Rathinam parents named their test tube child after the Doctor. Dr. Kamala Selveraj is a well-known obstetrician and gynecologist and is the daughter of Gemini Ganesan, yester years Tamilian Superstar. When asked by the doctor herself, how it feels to you, Dr.Selveraj added, it feels on the top of this world and I thank almighty for giving me this opportunity. She also said that the birth of kamala, test tube baby is still fresh in her memory. Adding to all this Dr. Kamala got emotional and mentioned that I cherished so much on how the first baby came out. The couple stayed with us for one month. I held the baby and cried as if she was my baby. The young doctor had then just returned from Australia after learning the test tube technology that helped Ramamurthy and his wife and many more thereafter. Ramamurthy, the father of the first south Indian test tube baby, also made a statement by adding, I knew that my daughter will have a baby but I was worried she might delay motherhood like my wife. Today, seeing her becoming a mother gives me immense joy and all I can say is that thanks to this test tube technology. As a known fact, there are many myths in India regarding a test tube baby. Earlier people use to think that test tube babies would be deformed as it’s not a natural process of conceiving but now many Indians have adopted this technology as a safe and sound procedure for the baby as well as for the mother. Clearing the air regarding all the myths, Kamala Rathinam’s husband included “my wife is performance oriented, bright and brilliant right through”. Chennai girl Kamala Rathinam was born through a test tube procedure 24 years ago and she has now become a mother herself. Ramala delivered a baby girl and she was ushered into this world by the same doctor who gave joy to her parents. The whole of hospital including staff, doctors, patients and visitors went nostalgic when they heard the first cry of the new born baby girl. Everyone presented at the hospital at the time of the birth participated in welcoming and blessing the baby. The little girl was born through C Section and weighs 2.8kg. www.indianmonthly.com.au

10 INDIAN MONTHLY | MAY 2016 Reason behind so many Earthquakes in South East Asia Earthquake is a sudden violent shaking of the ground, typically causing great destruction, as a result of movements within the earth›s crust or volcanic action. Earthquake causes when two blocks of the earth suddenly slip past one another. As it’s a natural movement and happens all around the globe, still it has been experienced that most number of earthquakes takes place around South East Asia. In recent years the disastrous earthquakes have shaken the soil and soul of South East Asia quite number of times claiming thousands of lives. Study reveals, a huge triangle-shaped tectonic region in eastern Asia plays host to numerous major earthquakes. The three boundaries of this region, which contains plateaus, mountains, and intermountain basins, are roughly the Himalayan arc, the Tianshan-Baikal, and longitude line ∼105°E. Within this triangular region, tectonism is highly intense and major deformation occurs both between crustal blocks. Outside of this region, rigid blocks move as a whole with relatively few major earthquakes and relatively weak Cenozoic deformation. On a large tectonic scale, the presence of this broad region of intraplate deformation results from dynamic interactions between the Indian, Philippine Sea-West Pacific, and Eurasian plates, as well as the influence of deep-level mantle flow. The Indian subcontinent, which continues to move northwards since its collision with Eurasia, has plunged beneath Tibet, resulting in various movements and deformations along the Himalayan arc that diffuse over a long distance into the hinterland of Asia. The northward crustal escape of Asia from the Himalayan collisional zone turns eastwards and southeastwards and defines the eastern Himalayan syntaxis. At the western Himalayan syntaxis, the Pamirs continue to move into central Asia, leading to crustal deformation and earthquakes that are largely accommodated by old eastward or northwest trending faults in the bordering areas between China, Mongolia, and Russia, and are restricted by the stable landmass northwest of the Tianshan-Altai-Baikal region. The subduction of the Philippine and Pacific plates under the Eurasian continent has generated a very long and narrow seismic zone along trenches and island arcs in the marginal seas while imposing only slight horizontal compression on the Asian continent that does not impede the eastward motion of eastern Asia. In the third dimension, there may be southeastward deep mantle flow beneath most of Eurasia that reaches the marginal seas and may contribute to extension along the eastern margin of Eurasia. In the past decade, more than 10 deadliest earthquakes have hit the south east region and several minor ones as well, killing thousands of people and destroying several houses. As there is nothing much to be done to control these deadly earthquakes as it’s a natural phenomenon, being human beings all we can do is to prepare ourselves well to fight with these natural calamities. www.indianmonthly.com.au

Bipasha is a very positive person, who makes people very comfortable around her. She has only nice things to say about people. Very few people are like that, she is very genuine. I wish she would completely stop using make-up as she has a really nice skin texture and looks even nicer without make-up.” When asked Bipasha, she did no different, she went gaga for Karan. In an interview, Bips stated “Usually, everybody comes here to impress you. This guy comes with the way he is and that’s what I like about him as a human being. I could say that Karan is a friend and I hang out with him as there is something similar about me and him. He is too honest, simple and forthright and has a great sense of humor. He believes in giving affection to people and I like affectionate people. He’s a guy with a big heart. Sometimes he says stupid things and gets into trouble, but that’s him.” After making such admiring statements for each other Karan and Bipasha accepted of being in love with each other quite lately.
