700 brides gifted bats to fix drunk hubbies 30.4.2017 deccanherald.com
What would you generally gift a newlymarried couple? A Madhya Pradesh minister has gifted 'mogris' — wooden bats used to wash clothes — to nearly 700 brides, and advised them to use it on their husbands if they turn alcoholic or harass them. The gifted 'mogri' bears a message 'sharabiyon ke sutara hetu bhent, police nahi bolegi' (gift for beating drunkards, police will not intervene). Gopal Bhargava, the state minister of panchayati raj and rural development, gifted the bats during a mass marriage ceremony on Saturday in his home town Garhakota in Sagar district. "Whenever I visit any rural or urban area in my constituency, women complain about their husband's drinking habit. They inform me that whatever little they earn is snatched away by their husband for alcohol," Bhargava said on Sunday. "The idea of gifting 'mogri' struck me when a woman asked me whether she should get her husband to stop drinking by beating him with this wooden plank," the minister said. So he ordered 10,000 bats to ...

The demand and consumption of organic products have increased globally by 10%. India's export of organic products, too, increased by 30% in the last one year but a lot more needs to be done, Union Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Nirmala Sitharaman said on Sunday. She was speaking at the valedictory function of the three-day-long Organics and Millets 2017 - National Trade Fair. She said the consumption of organic products was 32% in India and 47% in the US. The challenge before the Indian market is to increase aggregation, packaging and processing. The startups of Karnataka should come forward and take up the challenge, she said. "Byadgi chillies and black pepper from Karnataka are in good demand. But there is a need to package them well. There is one unit in Byadgi, but it is not up to the mark. It needs to improve. More and more organic and millet products should be made in Karnataka," she said. Minister for Agriculture Krishna Byre Gowda said the state government would organise an ...

Financial Assets vs Physical Assets - Striking right balance 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Assets that one can feel, see, touch or hold are called physical assets for example, real estate, precious metals, jewellery, plant and machinery, vehicles, tools etc. Physical assets require maintenance, repairs and upgrades which involve expenses. The financial assets are intangible assets that cannot be seen or felt except for the documents, if any, that represent ownership interest in the said asset, for example, shares, bonds, corpus held in bank deposits, account receivables, goodwill, copyrights, patents etc. Financial assets do not incur any depreciation or loss of value due to wear and tear. However, the financial asset may appreciate or depreciate in value terms depending upon the market conditions. Now let us limit ourselves to an individual investor's portfolio for discussing the physical and financial assets and its share in his portfolio. Let us exclude the assets like living house, vehicles and jewellery from the portfolio as these are purchased for consumption. We, Indians, love physical ...
