Plea in Indian SC to stay release of film Indu Sarkar
Poster of Indu Sarkar
A woman, who claims to be the biological daughter of late Sanjay Gandhi, Wednesday moved the Supreme Court seeking a stay on the release of the movie 'Indu Sarkar'.
The movie is scheduled to be released this Friday.
The counsel appearing for the petitioner mentioned the matter before a three-judge bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra and alleged that the Madhur Bhandarkar-directed movie is "full of concocted facts and is totally derogatory".
The bench also comprising Justices Amitava Roy and A M Khanwilkar refused to give a date for hearing the plea.
"You give your memo. We will see to it. We are not giving any date," the bench said.
Petitioner Priya Singh Paul's counsel alleged in the court that the movie contains "derogatory facts" to malign the image of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
The counsel told that the movie was scheduled to hit the screens on July 28 and they are seeking a stay on its release.
The plea has challenged the July 24 order of the Bombay High Court dismissing her plea to stay the release of the movie.
The high court had said that the petitioner had not made out any case for the court to interfere and stay release of the movie after the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) already granted certificate to the movie.
The Bombay High Court had also noted that no acknowledged descendant of Sanjay Gandhi has raised objection to the film.

Effect of monetary policy on risk, stability and financial crises
The crisis of 2008–09 has reignited a new interest in understanding money and credit fluctuations in the macro economy, and the crucial roles they could play in the amplification, propagation, and generation of shocks both in normal times and, even more so, in times of financial distress. This may reopen a number of fundamental fault lines in modern macroeconomic thinking between theories that treat the financial system as irrelevant, or, at least, not central to the understanding of economic outcomes, and those that reserve a central role for financial intermediation.
Air pollution control measures for Kathmandu Valley
According to the World Air Quality Index website, Air quality index of Ratnapark, Kathmandu was 158 on April 22 which is unhealthy. This means children and people with respiratory diseases should avoid outdoor exertion at this pollution level.

The return trip
It took us over five hours, drenched in rain, walking through treacherous ratomato sluggishly. It should not have taken more than two hours in a normal day. It was the cruellest irony that no sooner did we reach Panchkhal and sat at the Pipal Chautari to rest, than the bus we had left behind, arrived with people in the bus bursting with laughter on seeing us.

Menstrual taboo outdated
I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle. They were not allowed to look at the sun, to touch water source, flower, fruits, any male family member, nor even hear their voice. The activist may claim the situation has changed and I do agree but still during every month my loved ones turns into untouchables beings.
