Gaurav was becoming a famous name amongst the youth and many youngsters were getting inspired with the kind of profession and fame Gaurav was leading. But, unfortunately his life was ended in the most mysterious way that one would have thought of. According to his family, they said they heard a loud thud resonate from inside the bathroom at around 11 am in the morning. As the door was locked from inside they somehow managed to force the door to open and then they saw Gaurav lying unconscious on the floor with a weird thin black line around his neck. The family rushed to the hospital andsoon as they brought him to the hospital, doctors declared him dead. The medical reports stated the cause of his death is‘Asphyxia’, a condition where the body doesn’t get enough supply of oxygen causing unconsciousness and suffocation leading to death. When asked to his family about what was Gaurav going through from the last few days they said, Gaurav was a very normal guy and there were no disturbing elements in his nature. However Gaurav got hitched in January 2016 and then just a month ago, confessed to his wife that he was being pulled by a negative force and he was finding it difficult to cope up with it. Although his wife thought that his concern was just because of his stress and depression, but little did she know that this would have happened? Gaurav’s early professional life was opened up in an interview by his friend and he added that his professional career as a commercial pilot went on a downfall after he shifted into a house that was tagged as `haunted’. This got him to study about paranormal activities. He left his job and got himself enrolled in a private Institute where he studied Metaphysics. By the end of his education, he had conducted 80 on field investigations and became a certified paranormal investigator. He lived his life solving problems and mysteries, now his death is cloaked in one!! www.indianmonthly.com.au

6 INDIAN MONTHLY | JULY 2016 PM Modi retraces Mahatma Gandhi’s train journey in South Africa Recently Prime Minister visited South Africa and boarded a train from Pentrich railway station in Durban, to Pietermaritzburg in memory of the 1893 incident in which Mahatma Gandhi was thrown out of a train compartment on account of his skin colour. A white man had objected to Gandhi travelling in the first class coach in spite of the latter possessing a valid ticket. When Gandhi refused to move to the rear end of the train, he was thrown out. Gandhi decided that day to fight against the racial discrimination meted out to the Indian community in South Africa and resolved to stay there. His ideals of Satyagraha were subsequently born during Gandhi’s stay in South Africa. PM Modi, who is on a four-nation African tour, spoke at length about Gandhi during addressing to the Indian diaspora in Johannesburg. He said Gandhi was as much to South Africa as he was to India and described the country as Gandhi’s ‘karmabhoomi’. PM Modi stated that it was South Africa that transformed ‘Mohandas into Mahatma.’ In Pretoria, PM Modi said, “For me personally, this visit is an opportunity to pay homage to two of the greatest human souls to have ever walked this Earth – Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. We stood together in our common fight against racial subjugation and colonialism. It was in South Africa that Gandhi found his true calling. Gandhiji belongs to South Africa as much to India” Indian Prime Minister has engagements in Durban, home to 800,000 of the around 1.2 million people of Indian origin in South Africa and making it the city with the largest Indian population outside of India. www.indianmonthly.com.au

JULY 2016 | INDIAN MONTHLY 7 Aussie’s first Woman who had a 3D printed ear fitted after losing earlobe 55 years ago A woman who lost her left ear in a car crash 55 years ago has become the first person in Australia to receive a new ear through the wonders of 3D printing. Australian woman Colleen Murray broke down in tears when she saw her reflection for the first time since the ear was installed. “It’s wonderful,” she said, looking in disbelief at the realistic prosthetic attachment. A team of medical scientists used 3D printing to mould the silicon ear, using a scan of Mrs Murray’s right ear to cast a perfect replica for her left. Prosthetist Brenton Cadd said the technology has changed the world of medicine. “The shape is much better, the size is the same and that’s all due to the 3D printing,” Complete with a piercing, it snaps like a fridge magnet to titanium stumps in the side of the head. With a make-up brush to correct the colour, the end result has Colleen smiling from ear to ear. “I was born with two ears and I’ve wanted two ears and you’ve done it for me,” “Thank you very much.” Mrs Murray told her doctors. Medical scientists now confident they are on the verge of creating complex tissue, bones and cartilage through 3D printing. Apart from other prosthetics like arms and legs, scientists have already implanted printed muscle and bone into animals, with promising results. www.indianmonthly.com.au

JULY 2016 | INDIAN MONTHLY 11 In conversation with Nawal Moudgil my knowledge. I never applied for any award and in today’s time things are changing and people want to get the limelight but I am not one of them I am a shy figure and above all I am a trainer, I am here just to train people to do good for the music industry. I am really thankful to all my well-wishers and Sir John Monash Awards for honoring me this Multicultural champion award. What are your views on Technological factors that has brought changes in the music industry and hence discouraging youth to learn musical instruments? Nawal Moudgil is a renowned name in the Indian community staying in Australia. He has been famous for having stupendous 20 years into INDIAN Music, ART, CULTURE promotion through SIMDA & community services through SKGA Inc. (A non-profit organization) in Glen Waverley, Australia. Nawal Moudgil was born in Punjab, India and studied his Bachelor in Arts, and a Mechanical Engineer, after that also Visharad (Graduation) in Indian Classical Music, Sitar & Tabla (7-year course) We met Nawal Ji for an interview and he mesmerized us by sharing his beautiful life journey. Since when you developed your interest in Music? At a very young age I had interest in singing, I was in grade 8 when I decided to go forward with my interest. I remember I parents asked me what stream you want to take in school, is it science/ math’s/commerce? I instantly told them I want to become a music teacher and they went stunned with my choice as like all parents they wanted me to take a more money making profession. Later they took me to music teacher’s houses just to show me how poorly they live and how less they get paid. Somehow I convinced my parents to study music and art and here I am. But in saying that I also completed my Bachelor’s in engineering which my parents always wanted me to study. After finishing my graduation I started working in Maruti as a production engineer and I also use to sing in a hotel as a Ghazal singer on part time bases. As music was something I never wanted to let go. Recently Nawal ji you have been nominated by the Indian Sun Community Awards for the “Person of the year” in the category for providing Indian music education classes and entertainment, organizing music and film festivals in Australia since 1994. How do you feel about this? Firstly I would like to thank Indian Sun Community Awards for considering and appreciating my work since 1994. Well, I would like to include that getting recognition for your work is always inspiring you to do more for the community and it is not a single persons effort, I think in whatever you achieve in life it is always a team effort. Every time you have your family to support you, your co-workers, media, well-wishers, team support and helpers that make you climb the ladder. How did SIMDA happened? There was a time when I started giving part time classes to students interested in learning Music. My mother who was a Kathak dancer told me to follow my dreams and she helped me moving forward with this. SIMDA is my mother’s initiative as she use to teach kathak dance in her school of music and dance and later I joined with her and when I moved to Australia it became School of Music and Dance Australia SIMDA. Your achievements are beyond words. Recently you have been awarded Sir John Monash Award for Multicultural Champion. How would you express your feelings in words for winning this prestigious award? I have been following my mother’s footstep, both my parents blessings and teaching is what I am doing. I try to do the best for the community as this is what teaching my parents have given me. I don’t do things to get awards nor have I ever enrolled myself to get any of them. I just don’t want to put myself on the top, I just like to promote people, I want other people to do well and get recognized. For this Multicultural award, one of my student at SIMDA did enroll me for the awards without Unfortunately, these days’ western people acknowledge more Indian Music culture than the Indians themselves. Indians are going more towards westernized culture ignoring what our own Indian music culture has to offer. In saying that Indian do acknowledge but they don’t accept it openly. Indian culture, yoga, meditation, music there is so much Indian history has to offer. Whereas technological factors are concerned yes I feel less people are leaning more instruments as now a days youngsters prefer to practice on Karaoke as everything is so easily available on the internet. Even on big competition around the globe contestants are asked to sing on pre-recorded tracks rather than live bands. What is the next big thing that people should anticipate from SIMDA and SKGA Inc ? SIMDA and SKGA Inc is coming up with Sawan Spring Festival happening on the 25th of September 2016. It will bring Multicultural performing arts item and significant Onam and Dandiya presentations and lots other activities from various other ethnicities. It will be a 1 day celebration and will also have a hint of fashion, entertainment and fun. SIMDA & SKGA Inc will be offering a complete family show for everyone once again. www.indianmonthly.com.au

JULY 2016 | INDIAN MONTHLY 13 The real reasons Aussies hate supermarkets Different things can happen at different times, for an example sometimes a trip to the supermarket can be fairly straightforward and enjoyable and at other times it’ll leave you with your blood boiling. Long queues, machine errors or store opening times, some Aussies will complain about nearly anything. But a recent Canstar Blue survey reveals the biggest gripes that Aussies have with our supermarkets (excluding price complaints), and who the worst offenders are. to complain about other customers (15%). That compares to just 10% at IGA, 13% at Woolworths and 14% at Coles. Also, shoppers at Coles and IGA are most likely to raise concerns about parking (10%), while not being able to find a store assistant is more of a complaint at ALDI (7%) than anywhere else, although there isn’t much in it. “It seems we’ve been complaining about having to queue up at the checkouts forever, yet it’s an issue that the supermarkets have never ever managed to address to everyone’s satisfaction,” Canstar Blue group executive Megan Doyle said. “The introduction of self-service checkouts has clearly helped get customers in and out faster, but they are not immune to long queues and frustrations.” “In fact, queuing to use a self-service checkout is arguably more annoying than queuing at a normal checkout because you expect the process to be quicker.” Doyle Said. Megan Doyle also added that “Most shoppers can probably understand a slight delay at the checkout if they see all the stations are being manned or in the case of self-service machines, are working properly.” “But if it looks like the supermarket isn’t helping the situation by not making all checkouts available, people have every right to feel aggrieved,” she said. So what do you think which Aussie supermarkets are the biggest offenders? Survey says checkout queues are the main cause of complaints at Woolworths (27%), ALDI (26%) and IGA (26%). The exception is Coles where just 22% of shoppers get frustrated by queues to pay, while 23% say their number one grievance is items being sold out. At Woolworths the number is 21%, while at ALDI and IGA it’s 22%. ALDI shoppers are the most likely www.indianmonthly.com.au
