When 39.8 was greater than 60.2: Netizens troll Times Now for pie chart gaffe


When 39.8 was greater than 60.2: Netizens troll Times Now for pie chart gaffe

During our early years in school, we had a poem in English titled 'A Mortifying Mistake' by Anna Pratt. It's about a girl trying to memorise her six-times table for a test the next day. She could not remember six times nine, and to remember she finally takes her favourite doll Mary-Ann and renamed her 54 for a day.

The poem goes like this:

I studied my tables over and over, and backward and forward, too;

But I could n’t remember six times nine, and I did n’t know what to do,

Till sister told me to play with my doll, and not to bother my head.

“If you call her ‘Fifty-four’ for a while, you ’ll learn it by heart,” she said.

So I took my favourite, Mary Ann (though I thought ’t was a dreadful shame

To give such a perfectly lovely child such a perfectly horrid name),

And I called her my dear little “Fifty-four” a hundred times, till I knew

The answer of six times nine as well as the answer of two times two.

Next day Elizabeth Wigglesworth, who always acts so proud,

Said, “Six times nine is fifty-two,” and I nearly laughed aloud!

But I wished I had n’t when teacher said, “Now, Dorothy, tell if you can.”

For I thought of my doll and—sakes alive!—I answered, “Mary Ann!”

It looks like Times Now belongs to the same school of mathematics as Dorothy, the girl in the poem. The channel was called out on social media for putting a weird graph that shows 39.8 per cent is more than 60.2 per cent.

In one of its shows aired at 10 pm, the question asked as part of a survey was, “Do you think India has taken suitable steps to give China a befitting reply?” The poll showed 60.2 per cent of the replies in the negative, while 39.8 per cent in the positive. However, while creating the pie chart, someone replaced the numbers to show that 60.2 per cent was less than 39.8 per cent.

Times Now has since deleted the tweet and apologised for the gaffe, with a new graphic.


Soon after Times Now pie chart began trending on Twitter. This is how Twitter reacted to this gaffe

 

 


It’s not been the best week for the Times Group. Earlier in the week, the company put out a story of a man who killed his wife in Bengaluru and went to Kolkata to kill her mother and finally take his own life. The team then put a picture of what they thought was the couple. However, to the team’s horror, a day later, the couple in the picture shared a video stating that they were fine and that the news team had taken their picture from Facebook because they had the same name.




Chinese make right noises, and then some jarring ones


Chinese make right noises, and then some jarring ones

K J M Varma

Beijing

China on Wednesday said maintaining peace along the Sino-India border is in the common interest of both the countries and requires joint effort, even as it accused the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and the Indian media of making ‘‘some false’’ claims during the border tension.

In separate statements, the Chinese foreign and the defence ministries also repeated Beijing's stand that India was responsible for the June 15 violent face-off in eastern Ladakh.

While Defence Ministry Spokesman Col Wu Qian asserted that China and India are "important neighbours to each other" and the two sides should make great efforts to jointly ease the current border situation, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Zhao Lijian again accused India of "provoking" a border clash, saying "the onus is not on China's part."

Zhao also alleged that the MEA and the Indian media have made "some false reports."

Asked why after a positive meeting between the army commanders of India and China, he is making these allegations, Zhao said, "What I have just said is meant to clarify the whole situation, tell the truth to everyone. We made this statement because the MEA in India and also Indian media have made some false reports."

In New Delhi, the MEA issued a release after the countries held diplomatic talks which said India and China have agreed that expeditious implementation of the previously agreed understanding on disengagement of troops from standoff points in eastern Ladakh would help ensure peace and tranquillity in the border areas.

During the talks, which were held between Naveen Srivastava, Joint Secretary (East Asia) in the MEA, and Wu Jianghao, Director General in the Chinese foreign ministry, through video conferencing, the situation in the region was discussed in detail and the Indian side conveyed its concerns over the violent face-off in Galwan.

"In this regard, it was emphasised that both sides should strictly respect and observe the Line of Actual Control," the MEA added.

In the Chinese text circulated in his online press conference, the Chinese defence ministry spokesman said the two defence ministers are negotiating on phone but the English text circulated later made no reference to the defence ministers' talks.




Hinduja brothers in UK High Court over letter dispute


Hinduja brothers in UK High Court over letter dispute

The UK-based Hinduja brothers are locked in a legal dispute in the High Court in England over their family assets.

The case has been brought by Srichand Parmanand Hinduja, 84, described as the "patriarch" of the family, against brothers G P Hinduja, 80, P P Hinduja, 75, and A P Hinduja, 69, and revolves around the "validity and effect" of a letter dated July 2, 2014.

The letter includes statements to the effect that the brothers appoint each other as their executors, and that assets held in any single brother's name belong to all four. A related second letter, dated July 1, 2014, is also linked to the dispute.

"In summary, SP seeks a declaration that neither document has legal effect, whether as a will, power of attorney, declaration of trust or other binding documents, or alternatively that the documents are revocable and have been revoked," Justice Sarah Falk notes in her judgment on Tuesday.

"Additional relief is also sought, in particular an injunction restraining use of the documents and an account of the persons to whom the documents have been submitted and steps taken in reliance on them," she notes.

Presiding over a private hearing in the Chancery Division of the High Court, Justice Falk also partially ruled against a privacy order in the case and agreed for S P Hinduja's daughter, Vinoo, to act on her father's behalf as his "litigation friend" and safeguard her father's interests due to his ill health as a result of a form of dementia.

"I have concluded that the court should exercise its power under CPR 21.6 to appoint Vinoo as SP's litigation friend...There is no evidence to indicate that Vinoo's statement that her father has asked her to act for him in the proceedings because he is unable to do so is anything other than accurate," the ruling notes.

The High Court judgment makes references to the family's other legal proceedings, including over Hinduja Bank in Switzerland and confidential proceedings in Jersey.

It also notes that the three defending brothers contend that they have been prevented from seeing their eldest brother, Srichand P Hinduja, for some time.

"It will be apparent from the judgment of the High Court in England, that Mr. S P Hinduja's health has been deteriorating for a number of years suffering from Lewy Body Disease, which is a form of dementia. Vinoo, his younger daughter, acting as his Litigation Friend is bringing these proceedings on his behalf," said a joint statement by G P, P P, and A P Hinduja.

"It is very unfortunate that these proceedings are taking place as they go against our Founder's and family's values and principles that have stood for many decades, especially, 'everything belongs to everyone and nothing belongs to anyone'. We intend to defend the claim to uphold these dearly held family values," they note.

Referring to the issue as "private family matters" now subject to litigation, they add: "We would also stress that this litigation will not have any impact on our global businesses, which will continue to function as they have been."

The Hinduja brothers, who run the Hinduja Group of companies, have an estimated fortune of 16 billion pounds, according to the 2020 'Sunday Times Rich List'. Their business conglomerate, based in Mumbai and headquartered in London, covers a wide range of sectors including automotive, hospitality, banking, and healthcare.




Delhi HC grants bail to Safoora Zargar in Delhi riots case


Delhi HC grants bail to Safoora Zargar in Delhi riots case

The Central Government stated that it had no objection to her release on humanitarian grounds.

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday allowed bail to Safoora Zargar, 27 year old student of Jamia Milia Islamia University under custody for alleged conspiracy behind Delhi riots, after the Central Government stated that it had no objection to her release on humanitarian grounds.

There were widespread concerns raised about the incarceration of Zargar, who is in the 23rd week of her pregnancy, in the overcrowded Tihar prison amid COVID-19.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta submitted that without going into the merits of the plea, and without considering this as a precedent, the State has no problem with Safoora being released on bail provided she doesn’t indulge in activities she’s being investigated for.

Safoora should also remain in Delhi, insisted the SG.


 
Advocate Nithya Ramakrishnan, appearing for Zargar, submitted that she might have to go to Faridabad to consult her doctor.

A bench of Justice Rajiv Shakhdher granted regular bail to Safoora on furnishing a personal bond of ₹10k and on the following conditions:

a. She should not indulge in activities she is being investigated for

b. She should refrain from hampering investigation

Zargar has challenged before Delhi HC the June 4 order of Additional Sessions Judge, Patial House Courts, rejecting her bail application.


She has been booked under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act on the allegation that she hatched the criminal conspiracy behind the riots which happened in North East Delhi during February 23-25.

The Delhi Police has filed a report in the Court stating that Zargar is ‘disposed towards creating turmoil’, and that she was part of conspiracy to “destroy, destabilize and disintegrate the Government of India in order to compel to withdraw the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the alleged National Register of Citizens”.

According to the police, Israr was hot headed, which allegedly led him to steal the motorcycle and attack the child.

Israr’s brother gives statement
Describing the attack, Israr’s brother Gulfam said in the FIR, “At around 6.30 pm I was told by locals that they are beating up my brother in village Dehra. As I reached the place, I saw the accused were assaulting him with sticks and rods. They were also using a sharp weapon and Israr had been tied up. When I told them to stop, they beat him up even more. I called 112 after which he was rushed to a hospital. He was attacked for no fault of his.”

“They are saying that he injured a child (while riding his motorcycle) . I met that child and he is fine but they have destroyed our peace,” Gulfam, younger brother of Israr, told local newspaper.


 
“As Israr was riding his bike, the child had accidentally got injured. I wish if they had lodged a complaint or kept him captive but they turned into demons and killed him,” he adds.

Israr is survived by his 3 small children and a pregnant wife. His eldest daughter is 6 years old. “We haven’t told anything to the children. His body was not in such condition that we could show it to them,” said Gulfam.

Gulfam added the untimely death of Israr has come as trauma for their family and Israr’s eldest brother is in depression after the incident.

The relatives are worried about the survival of the family as Israr was the only earning member.

“At this moment, we stand at historic cross-roads. Our Government’s decisions and actions will have serious bearings on how the future generations perceive us. Those who lead us bear the weight of a solemn duty. And in our democracy that responsibility rests with the office of the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister must always be mindful of the implications of his words and declarations on our Nation’s security as also strategic and territorial interests,” Singh said.

Noting that disinformation is no substitute for diplomacy or decisive leadership, Singh called upon the prime minister to ensure justice for soldiers who died defending India's territorial integrity.

"To do any less would be a historic betrayal of people's faith," he said in a statement.

Vice President Venkaiah Naidu urges educational institutions to include Yoga in online programmes amid COVID-19


Vice President Venkaiah Naidu urges educational institutions to include Yoga in online programmes amid COVID-19

New Delhi: On the occasion of International Yoga Day, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu has urged educational institutions to include Yoga in online learning programmes being conducted amid COVID-19 pandemic, calling it as one of the best options to improve the body's immunity.

Speaking at the digital 'Yoga and Meditation Shivir', organised by SPIC MACAY, the Vice President said Yoga is a science that emphasises balance, poise, grace, equanimity, peace and harmony. He said children must be introduced to Yoga at a young age. "I am glad that 'UNICEF Kid Power' has listed 13 Yoga stretches and poses for children," he added.

Referring to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the physical and mental health of the people, the Vice President said, "Indeed the world is going through challenging times and we simply cannot allow the pandemic to get the better of us." He said that yoga can be an effective solution for the high level of stress that the pandemic has created in our lives. "Yoga is a relatively low-risk, high-yield approach to improving overall health and its full potential must be harnessed," he added.

 
 

Pointing out that the pandemic was not the only health crisis that was threatening the wellbeing of the people, he expressed concern over the increase in lifestyle diseases. Quoting WHO, he said it was estimated that 63 per cent of all deaths in India in 2016 was because of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). "Yoga remains an incredibly simple but powerful instrument to prevent and control lifestyle diseases", Naidu observed.

The Vice President said that Yoga has become one of the biggest fitness movements across the globe and the onus of keeping it alive depends on all of us. "The ancient heritage of India, Yoga has had an uninterrupted tradition and the onus of keeping this priceless tradition alive is on all of us," he added.

Rahul says Narendra Modi is Surender Modi, Twitter wonders if it's a typo


Rahul says Narendra Modi is Surender Modi, Twitter wonders if it's a typo

On Sunday morning, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in a move to hit out at PM Narendra Modi said 'Narendra Modi Is actually Surender Modi.'

After attacking the PM over his statement on India-China border clash, Gandhi has continued to slam him on Twitter.

Gandhi shared an opinion piece titled 'India’s appeasement policy toward China unravels' published by The Japan Times. While sharing the article he wrote, "'Narendra Modi Is actually Surender Modi."

In the article, the author wrote, "After years of bending over backward to appease China, Modi has received yet another Chinese encroachment on Indian territory. Will this be enough to persuade him to change his approach?"

Well, it is imperative to note that the Congress leader has been taking a dig at the PM and has been voicing concerns over the India-China border clash. And on Saturday Gandhi attacked Modi over his remark that neither is anyone inside India's territory nor has any of its posts been captured, alleging that the PM has "surrendered" Indian territory to Chinese aggression.

Gandhi surely led the way in trolling the PM and within few minutes several on Twitter went on to slam PM Modi for his remark.

But now...It seems that Sunday morning is not going quite well for Mr Gandhi as Twitter trolls him for his comment.

Twitter is now wondering if the 50-year-old has made a typo.

A Twitter user said, " Spelling mistake hai, troll ho jaoge...Delete kardo."

Here's how netizens are trolling the Congress leader.
