this year Sources said while the department has sought 1064 as its four-digit helpline number it is yet to be assigned to the helpline Senior police officers said the idea to have its own helpline to tackle corruption cases against officers in its department has been initiated to encourage the public to report cases of corruption against police officers with the department itself instead of approaching another agency Sources in the Vigilance department said the helpline will be operated from the Vigilance department office on Barakhamba Road “There will be 10 lines manned by 10 police personnel including women police personnel Two teams for raiding will be ready every day and every call relating to bribery against a police officer will be attended to immediately” a senior police officer posted with the department said Sources said whenever a call comes in it will be referred to only the seniormost officers in the Vigilance department since the matter is sensitive and would have to be addressed at a high level The officer said the ACB had received approximately 600 complaints against police personnel in 2013 Sources said the maximum corruption complaints received by the

Olympic winners Sakshi Malik Mary Kom or even Dipa Karmakar – who lost the Olympic medal by a whisker–in an advertisement The truth is except for PV Sindhu Saina Nehwal and Sania Mirza most Indian sportswomen are rarely seen in advertisements What would be the chances of the country’s women’s cricket team the runners-up at the ICC Women’s World Cup Would the female cricketers led by captain Mithali Raj be able to cash in on their popularity In the past we have had Abhinav Bindra India’s sole individual gold medalist who was instrumental in getting the nation to leap up in joy for being the country’s first gold medal winner in any Olympics Bindra won it for the shooting event at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 However he was seen only in a few commercials Many would find it hard-pressed to recall the advertisement presenting Rajyavardhan Rathore winner of India’s first-ever silver medal in an individual event — the men’s double trap at the 2004 Athens Olympics That’s the short-lived glory of memory with regard to Olympics Cricket unlike other sports in India is a national religion that cuts across all demography and every other divide Admittedly the women cricket players are not in the league of a Virat Kohli or MS Dhoni in the popularity stakes But the girls were lauded and encouraged by none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi who also was following the game It was also the second time Indian women’s cricket team had entered a World Cup final Would all these translate into recognition and rake in the moolah for the Indian women cricket stars It should for some of the players of the team believe brand specialists “I think one of the biggest contributions of the current women’s cricket team is bringing women’s cricket into national conversation Now that the entire nation is talking about it many brands will line up to be a part of this team” says Dheeraj Sinha Chief Strategy Officer Leo Burnett South Asia AP Sinha says that it makes a lot of sense for brands to feature the women cricketers as this team represents the dominant spirit of today’s India – which is making things happen despite all odds “Considering a large part of our marketing is targeted at women this is going to be a big media opportunity” he says Some like Piyush Pandey co-executive chairman and national creative director of Ogilvy & Mather India and vice-chairman of O&M Asia-Pacific is recommending some of the players from the women’s team to clients “I am sure some of them will get advertisements They deservedly should” said Pandey unwilling to reveal who he has recommended among the current players Though some women cricketers would get brand endorsements the fees offered would be low and the duration of the sponsorship could be for a short period they said The reason for the low fees or few endorsements that come for women sports is linked to its popularity or the lack of it “You are onlyas good as the eyeballs you attract Sakshi Malik [who won bronze in freestyle wrestling in 2016 Rio Olympics] for instance would still be around in advertisements if her game and sport would be in the eyes of the public 24×7 Any sport that gets eyeballs only for a few days in a year will lose out” says Harish Bijoor chief executive officer of brand and business strategy firm Harish Bijoor Consults Inc Any sport and its celebrities have to be continuously seen or watched “A sport such as cricket which has many events through the year should be able to provide the required exposure Having said that I believe that Sakshi Malik and Mary Kom are big inspirations for larger India and they haven’t faded away in any way” Sinha says When brands spend money to further their products/services they do it on those who can assure them returns So the popularity of the sportsperson and the game translates to the brand or the company “It is certainly not affection for the player that gets them the advertisement” says Bijoor What also helps is the sports coverage on television No one watched kabaddi as a sport unless Star TV broadcast it says Kiran Khalap brand consultant author and founder Chlorophyll brand and communications consultancy Unless the sport is featured on TV it does not get eyeballs Cricket was and is amenable to TV but who would think kabaddi would have been watched on TV by millions of people But continuous coverage on TV on a sports channel achieved that for the game Though Piyush Pandey says that a lot of brands are scouting for new names to take their brands forward he adds that the connection of the brand with the sportspersons depends on who is being featured and his/her popularity “A Sachin Tendulkar has outlived his career and yet gets advertising assignments However they are far lower than during his hey time A MS Dhoni too will outlive his cricket” says Pandey adding that when it comes to any game beyond cricket India as a country is not quite evolved Cricket with male cricketers is played in different formats of the game telecast on TV and also gets many sponsors That is one of the reason the audience beyond just cricket lovers knows a Virat Kohli or a Rohit Sharma or Ravindra Jadeja well Their popularitythen gets them advertisements So what awaits the girls in bluevis-a-vis endorsements Sinha says that their story is valuable for brands irrespective of gender and age Beyond this it would depend on the brand its positioning and value system whether it makes sense for them to associate with the team and its players Bijoor has a suggestion “I think it is time for a reinvention of IPL cricket” he says Since IPL is cricketainment and not a pure format of the game Bijoor suggests that every IPL team must make it mandatory to have two women players “We may discover some spin bowlers or star cricketers better than the men Who knows” he says India does not have a single football pitch good enough to host a FIFA World Cup match a senior FIFA official said on Monday Javier Ceppi world football’s governing body FIFA’s tournament director for the U-17 World Cup 2017 has also ruled out hiring foreign consultants to improve football pitches adding that the global football body was willing to help Indian government agencies to work on the quality of pitch infrastructure as a capacity building measure Representational Image AFP "Pitch has to be in perfect condition So whatever we have seen now around the country the pitch has to be in much better condition than every single pitch we have seen in the country so far Much much better" Ceppi told reporters at a press conference in Panaji where he officially announced the selection of Goa as a provisional venue for the Under-17 World Cup Ceppi also said the six provisional venues shortlisted for the 2017 tournament namely Kolkata New Delhi Kochi Guwahati Navi Mumbai and Goa would have to upgrade the football pitch to the standards seen in the world’s best football tournaments "Did you see the Championship final in Berlin or did you see the World Cup in Brazil That is the standard we are looking at Ladies and gentlemen this is the World Cup it is not your average tournament It’s a World Cup It is a once in a lifetime opportunity" Ceppi said Asking the officials in charge of the six provisional venues to up their game Ceppi said that if any venue failed to make the quality grade before a FIFA ratification team inspects them in September 2016 three other venues – Bengaluru Chennai and Pune – were on standby "There are nine shortlisted venues and this is important for everybody to know In addition to the six provisionally selected are Bengaluru Chennai and Pune And they are ready to take anybody’s place Bengaluru for instance they are building their stadium So if anybody falls behind we will not hesitate to replace a venue It is within our powers it’s within our rights" Ceppi said The official also said that the fear of losing an opportunity to host World Cup games would serve as a "motivation for all the selected provisional venues that they cannot fall asleep because if they fall asleep it will end up being more difficult for them" Ceppi also said that FIFA was against hiring foreign consultants for pitch improvements adding that it would be better if the host venue develops capacity with adequate support from the football body "No we will not be hiring or appointing foreign consultants unless we are facing a situation where we feel we want to hire foreign consultants The venue people can maintain the grounds to a higher standard" Ceppi said IANS The suicides of two youngsters in Kerala and Maharashtra while playing the Blue Whale challenge has forced the Goa Police to issue a formal advisory to parents on safeguarding their wards from playing the online game The advisory released by the Crime Branch late on Thursday asked parents to install parental control software in computers and mobile phones used by their children and also limit app usage Children who have entered the game might have depression or even have had suicidal thoughts said the advisory issued by Superintendent of Police (Crime Branch) Karthik Kashyap "Recognise any change in your kid’s behaviour that may point out depression or any other mental problem Monitor your kid’s search history and get useful insights "They will help you see the state of mind of your kid View your child’s: text messages call logs search history communication via Facebook Snapchat WhatsApp etc "Moreover try to limit apps’ usage and block sites promoting dangerous activities" the advisory cautioned The game created by a Russian Philipp Budeikin is directly targeting children and encouraging them to harm themselves over 50 stages culminating in suicide The game is reportedly linked to the deaths of more than 100 young people around the world The advisory also requested parents to speak to their children about the game "Talk to your kid about the game Ask if they have heard about this at school If you hear this game is being spread at your child’s school ring alarm bells and raise awareness among teachers and parents" it said By: Express News Service | Pune | Published: July 4

News About 15 villagers from New Kopre led by activists of Yuvak Kranti Dal (UKRAND) were detained by the Deccan Police on Monday morning for staging a protest outside the office of BJP Rajya Sabha MP and developer Sanjay Kakade on Shirole Road The protesters who are demanding rehabilitation of 15 families claimed that they were displaced when land was acquired for National Defence Academy in 1967 alleged that Kakade is using his influence in the government machinery to curb their voices Kumar Saptarshi founder of YUKRAND said protesters were forcibly picked up by the police minutes after arriving at the site Kakade told Newsline that the protesters’ demand was illegal as the 15 families do not have any evidence to show that they were affected by the project He added that he was ready to allot them houses if they are able to produce 7/12 extracts showing their ownership of the land affected by the project According to the protesters of the 401 families who had lost the land to the National Defence Academy 1967 54 are still to get the houses The families were to get homes in Kakade City a project by Kakade Constructions which is owned by Sanjay Kakade now a BJP MP As per Saptrashi the 15 families that are now part of the protest were initially in the list of beneficiaries which were to get the houses “Kakade is using his influence in the government by using revenue department officials as well as police machinery In private he promised me to rehabilitate the 15 families however he has not made any formal announcement Until that happens we will continue to land at his doorstep every Monday” said Saptarshi Kakade meanwhile denied having “promised anything” to Saptarshi as “what he’s fighting for was unjust” “This issue first cropped in 2000 Saptarshi did not protest then Now that I’m a BJP MP they are trying to wriggle me to accept an unjust demand because they think I’ll be afraid that this issue may tarnish by public image Why didn’t they protest for the last 17 years” he said He added that he has repeatedly told Saptarshi that if a documentary evidence is provided he will willingly hand over flats to the families “The rehabilitation is done by the state government through the district collector They should go and protest there I was merely a conductor I proceeded with the list of beneficiaries that the district collector’s office had provided me These names were not there in the list hence they didn’t get the houses” he said For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Related NewsPublished: May 22 2013 3:28 am
