.....And Do You Know These Affairs Increased After These Movies Were Released
Extra marital affairs is always been the favourite story line of Bollywood. Films reflect the story based on real life which gives the actual hint about the society. Recently released film ‘Rustom’ also portrayed the same story of the bitter side of marriage and society. And if we see relationships around us then you will realize that more couples are entering into a loveless relationship where feelings are ignored by money and comfort.

Here are some Bollywood movies which tells you story of extra marital affairs:-

Life in a Metro

The movie tells the tangled relationships of couples in the metros, where people are so into their dreams that they forget about their personal lives. In the movie, Shilpa Shetty, who was always neglected by her husband get into relationship with Shiney Ahuja. Though, at the end she returns back to her family when she realizes her mistake.


The story of this film dealt with bold and sensitive of extra marital affair in the era of 80’s. It showed the different layers of human nature. And so, the movie is considered as to be one of the masterpieces of Bollywood.

Pati Patni aur Who

The name of the movie itself reveals the whole story of the film. The movie showed the serious issue in a comical and satirical way.

Humari Adhuri Kahani

The film showed the other side of love affair outside the marriage in a very mature way. But still it was not the culture of India and people were unable to digest the story.

Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna

It was the story of loveless married couples who instead of loving their partners fall in love with other person. At the end they move out of the marriage and quit their marriage and stay with their love. The movie was not liked by the Indian audience.


Though the movie was based on real life story of Nanavati case of 1959 but it showed the all new side of affair outside the marriage, where a wife cheats his husband with his friend.


It tells the story of a frustrated wife who starts enjoying the company of her music teacher and fells in love with him. The film also touches upon issues of patriarchal dominance and domestic abuse.

Akhir Kyon

The movie depicts the extra marital affair between sister-in-law and brother-in-law. It shows the struggle life of a woman who leave her husband when she came to know about his extramarital affair with her cousin sister.


The film was way ahead of this time. Though the movie was based on the life of Shabana Azmi who starts living a independent life when she founds cheated by her husband but every aspect of extramarital affair was amazingly portrayed on screen.

Ek hi Bhool

While most films took the ‘serious’ path towards establishing the consequences of an extra-marital affair, this one provided comical relief. The actor fall in love and get married. The couple has a son and life seems blissful, until the actor falls in love with his secretary and their happy married life become disaster.

Bombay HC lifts stay on OCs to Ghodbunder Road buildings

13th Oct 2017

THANE:The Bombay high court on Wednesday lifted its stay on grant of occupation and commencement certificates to new constructions and building projects on Ghodbunder Road in Thane and Baner and Balewadi in Pune.

The direction by a bench of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice Nitin Jamdar came on a PIL regarding nonsupply of water to high-rises having OCs and shortage of water for existing buildings as it is diverted for construction purposes, forcing residents to purchase water from tankers. On May 5, the court had directed the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) not to issue OCs and CCs to projects on Ghodbunder Road. A similar order was passed for the Pune Municipal Corporation areas of Baner and Balewadi.

But the HC on Wednesday noted that thereafter, except for the petitioners, no individual flat-owner or housing society had come up with complaints. “If there is any violation, we can take action. I’m waiting for the last six months. Water is something you cannot stay without,” the CJ said. TMC’s advocate said it was not diverting water for construction, while the PMC’s counsel said it had written letters to housing societies asking their representatives to attend meetings but nobody had turned up.

Lifting its stay on grant of OCs and CCs to new projects on Ghodbunder Road and in a couple of areas in Pune, the Bombay high court said, “We are surprised to hear that none of such meeting (sic) were attended by (housing) societies or occupants. If there was really a water problem, as severe as expressed by the petitioners, the people affected would have approached this court.”

The judges added, “We cannot shut our eyes or opine that there is no water problem. It may not be to the extent expressed by the petitioners, but there is bound to be water problem with so many flats coming up.” Taking note that not everyone could approach the court through PILs and get their grievances addressed, the bench said it would be “just and proper” if in each of these districts there was a committee so that aggrieved people could “approach it and place their grievance (s) and get them redressed”.

It said the panel should be headed by the municipal commissioner and consist of the divisional commissioner, chief city engineer (in charge of water supply) and member secretary of the Maharashtra Legal Services Authority. It shall meet once in 2 months and take up grievances of those “having deficit and non-supply of domestic water” and report to the court from time to time. “Let us see how this committee works,” said the CJ, adding that the PIL will be kept pending. TMC and PMC have been directed “to create public awareness for the purpose of redressal of water supply problem.” The judges said “in light of the above and measures taken the restrictions imposed on local authorities preventing issue of occupation certificate will have to be reconsidered by us.”

Thaneites go eco-friendly this Diwali: Bamboo, jute, cloth & cardboard rock

14th Oct 2017

THANE: With the less than a week left for the festival of Diwali, the markets in the city are full of lights, lanterns and diyas.

Be it a vibrant variety of cane, jute and cloth made kandils or reusable floating rangolis and traditional clay diyas, many stores have gone a step ahead and ensured that all their Diwali decorations are made from eco-friendly material in an attempt to be a part of the green celebrations this year.

From Kandils or lanterns made from jute, bamboo, cloth and paper to rangoli powder made from extracts of plants like haldi, kumkum, indigo, rice, etc, these store owners have stocked their shelves with a variety of green options to make it easy for the residents to celebrate the festival of lights with a clear conscience. Madhu Doiphode, owner of city-based Sarvadnya Arts, said, “While we have been making festive decorations since a decade, we have noticed a growing craze of eco-friendly ones over the past four years. We use cardboard, bamboos, jute, cloth and paper to make17 varieties of lanterns including cylinder kan dils, pineapple kandils, diya kandils and traditional kandils etc. The colours we use are all water colours and eco-friendly."

“We make out colours by crushing and drying some parts of plants including haldi, kumkum, indigo and rice. We started making it for a few people who used it in their home around goddess Lakshmi's idol.Meanwhile many others then used artificial colour powders.Over the past few years, the demand for these natural colours is on a rise and we begin making it two months in advance to keep up with the demand," said Meena Bali (57) who has her stall on thane station road.

“While there is a growing rise for the fancy decorations on website, citizens continue to prefer buying traditional clay diyas, kandils and torans from the shops. We make clay diyas, floral torans, festive wall hangings and other such decorations with this traditional touch to cater to our customers,“ said Kusum Kothari (48), who runs a workshop with a team of eight other women at Vrindavan society. Many stores in the city have also started stocking up on ecofriendly rangolis and torans which are made from acrylic sheets, float on water and are reusable over the years.

Proposed 6-km freeway between Shilphata & Kalwa may ease traffic

12th Oct 2017

THANE: The state public works department is mulling constructing a freeway between Shilphata and Kalwa to ensure a smooth and faster dispersal of traffic between Thane, Mumbai and Panvel, Pune on the old highway.
A pre-feasibility study for constructing the approximately Rs 1,000-cr worth elevated road running above the six-km long Mumbra bypass road has been done by the Raigad division of the PWD that also maintains the old Pune highway. The route is an important and fastest connect between Thane, westerns suburbs of Mumbai with Panvel, Pune and even Konkan. The JNPT-Gujrat traffic also uses this corridor among others.

As per plans, the elevated road would connect Y-junction near Bharat Gears towards Shil and Retibunder towards Kalwa. The six-km long freeway would have two lanes in each direction and would run parallel above the existing bypass road at an elevated level of seven metres. The new road would have all safety features including a robust periphery walls to arrest any vehicle falling off the speed corridor and also to avoid any debris from the hills to tumble on the concourse during landslides.

The idea, say PWD officials is to augment the capacity on the dense corridor that has been facing massive traffic snarls for a very long time now. The bypass stretch is one of a vital connect between the JNPT, Pune and Konkan with the rest of the country and witnesses a huge flow of traffic throughout. However, as there is no scope for widening on the route due to geographical constrains of having a valley on one side and hills on the other, the only option is to go vertical, informed PWD officials.

One of the advantages of the elevated freeway would be segregation of heavy and light vehicles that will get a speedier option to cross the perennially clogged stretch. "The existing bypass road witnesses' massive traffic snarls at times that often lasts till hours at a stretch. Small vehicles like passenger cars and taxis often get stuck amid the heavy trucks and containers," informed a traffic official.

The need for the road was discussed recently at a closed door meeting of senior officials with public works minister Eknath Shinde who has assured to look into the issue. "The stretch witnesses massive snarls throughout affecting movement of not just freight but also passenger traffic. An elevated road should possibly solve the traffic crisis at the highway and we are pushing the freeway to be constructed on a priority basis," said Shinde who also happens to be the guardian minister of Thane.
Meanwhile, environmentalists have expressed worry at the ecological damage to the neighboring Parsik hills due to the construction works.

If tapped well, city could have collected water for 900 days

12th Oct 2017

THANE: The city witnessed one of the strongest monsoon season this year that could have otherwise ensured the water supply requirement of over 900 days for the city if it was tapped properly by the authorities. Experts, however, blame apathy on part of the authorities and rampant concretization that may have led to a bulk of this water to have drained into the creek.

A massive amount of rain as high as 3,500mm showered over the 128 sqkms area of the city over the last four months in Thane city. Experts have estimated the volume of rains showered here to be nearly 4.43lakh million litres that is equal to the daily water supply of the city for nearly 900 days of the city. The lake city requires nearly 480 million litres of water daily for consumption and non-potable use that is supplied by the corporation through various agencies.

A conservative estimate by the experts here reveal that some volume of rain water could have been percolated within the ground in the no development zones in the city like the Yeoor forests and other small green patches. However, a major volume of rain water would have been swept away to the creek as the city has seen rapid concretization over the years leaving bare minimum soil space left for water percolation.

Further, the city has no reservoir that can tap and store the rain water for further use except the around 32 lakes that are also fast turning into ponds with the civic administration reportedly adding a cement layer to its sides. The city apparently lacks any mechanism to capture and store rain water and neither has it evolved any systems for smart use of this water over the years that eventually flows into the gutter.

Activists say tapping the rain water would have also saved the corporation a notable amount of money. The city draws nearly 480million litres water from various sources like STEM, MIDC, BMC in addition to its own sources and incurs a monthly expenditure of Rs 85 crores for the same.
"The corporation should promote storage of rain water that otherwise gets drained away. If there was a mechanism to tap this water, the civic body could have saved a lot on expense incurred on buying water from other sources as residents could have utilized this water during the monsoons," pointed an activist.

"There is an urgent need for tapping the abundant rain water in the ground and not allow it to so easily slip down into the drains. We have been wasting resources and money to draw water from far off reservoirs but are not ready to tap the abundant rain water. A huge amount of inconvenience and money could be saved if residents start tapping rain water and using it for non-potable purposes," suggested an expert from Thane.

"Percolation of water in the soil doesn't happen fast in the city as there is less soil space available for percolation here. Water thus flows down the drain soon. We are appealing residents to adopt rain water harvesting to ensure we have a healthy underground water table in the city," said a senior official from the water supply department.

23% infants not fully vaccinated, TMC to start 4-month-long drive

12th Oct 2017

THANE: More than 23 per cent of the over 27,000 new-born and infants from the deprived pockets in the city have not been completely vaccinated and could be susceptible to infectious diseases and at risk of untimely death, said officials in the civic health department.

"Of the total 27,614 kids in the 0-2 years bracket, we have records of 9,694 children who have either missed out on their dose or could be taking them soon," said Dr Ram Kendre, medical health officer of the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC).

The poor immunization of infants, specially from the High Risk Areas (HRA) has compelled the civic health machinery to adopt a targeted approach and intensify the vaccination drive in the lake city.

The TMC will be conducting a week-long special vaccination drive over the next four months.
"The government is focusing on cities wherein children up to the age of two have not taken adequate vaccinations as per the immunization schedule. The focus is to make these children immune to diseases like polio, hepatitis B, whooping cough, et al," added Dr Kendre.

In order to make sure that all the children take the adequate vaccinations a survey was done in the HRA to identify the kids.

"A week long drive will be conducted from October 9 to 14 where these children will be given the dose that they have missed at 27 health centers, five maternity homes and at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Hospital. Also, pregnant women, who have not taken tetanus or boosters will be immunized. Not only this month, but this drive will be conducted for a week over the next four months," added Kendre.

Sudden temperature change from hot to cold makes people feel ‘sick’

11th Oct 2017

THANE: The fluctuating temperature due to the sudden rains in the evenings and blistering heat during daytime has given a cold and cough to almost everyone in the city.

There has been a steady rise in the cases of gastrointestinal and typhoid among the elders, while viral, cough and cold are increasingly common among children, doctors said.

The unpleasant climate has resulted in infections born from various airborne and water borne diseases like respiratory tract infections, sinus problems, diarrhoea etc.

"The extreme heat conditions results in food items getting spoilt easily leading to food poisoning. In the last 15 days itself, the number of patients suffering from gastro and typhoid have increased by 60%. The sudden change in the climate has also lead to dehydration leading to fatigue. The ones allergic to dust are falling sick. These people easily suffer from common cold, sinus infections etc," said Dr Suparna Nirgudkar, consultant physician.

"The seasonal variation has led to an increase in the number of patients suffering from fever, cough, cold which usually lasts for three to five days. It is essential to observe kids for the next 72 hours if they have been suffering from high fever. Usually I get around 50 to 70 patients daily out of which around 60% suffer from common cold, cough and fever," said Dr Mangesh Pate, paediatrician.
The doctors have advice to take adequate precautions so that one does not suffer from any ailment.

"People should ensure to eat fresh and hot food and avoid roadside food. One should consume only filtered or boiled water. One should even keep the surroundings clean and see to it that there are no mosquito breeding spots in or around the house. If possible, people should avoid going out between 12noon and 4pm and even wear loose and light coloured clothes," added Nirgudkar.

Trans-Harbour rly Commuters Ffume Over Revised Timetable

10th Oct 2017

THANE: Commuters travelling on the Trans-Harbour route are upset with the recent revision in the timetable which, they claim, focuses more on Panvel route, leaving commuters travelling on the Sanpada-Vashi sector with less services.

Those travelling between Thane and Vashi said that the announcement of new services on this route has not made any difference to them as the railways have started back to back services towards Belapur, Panvel, leaving a huge time gap for Vashi trains. Passengers are now demanding that the railways schedule alternate services to Panvel and Vashi at least during the peak hours. This will cause less inconvenience to commuters.

A glance at the revised timetable shows that during the peak hours the frequency of Thane-Nerul trains are more but there is a gap of 20 to 25 minutes for Vashi services.

The Trans-Harbour services between Thane and Nerul, Panvel or Vashi operate at an interval of five to 10 minutes.

"There was a 9:37am train earlier which has now been changed to 9:53am. Some commuters who travel from Kalyan and Dombivli already have less frequency of trains at that time. With the revised timing, it will make life difficult for them. As per the revised timetable, the wait time for a Thane-Vashi train has increased by over 15 minutes as more trains have been introduced on the Panvel sector," complained Meghana Nabar, a regular commuter from Thane.

Meanwhile, the Railways have justified their move saying that they have been checking the trend of services at high density stations. "The revisions has been made based on the number of ticket and season pass sales at a particular station. There is high demand towards Nerul and Panvel during peak hours so we have to operate more trains," said a railway official from Thane.

Rs 150 cr due: Why is TMC lenient towards traders, ask activists

10th Oct 2017

THANE: Citizen activists' from Thane are planning to launch a no-tax payment agitation starting next month protesting the apparent lenient approach of the TMC towards the octroi default payments.
A PIL over the issue filed by a city-based activist Chandrahas Tawde is presently being heard by the Bombay High Court that had also lashed out at the administration and questioned the delay in recovery of dues in its last hearing in 2016.

The agitation, justify activists from the Thane Matadata Jagran Abhiyan who announced it on Monday, is to put pressure on the TMC and seek a clarification over its stand over recovery of dues amounting over Rs 150 crore since the last few years. The activists claimed they will now urge residents to not pay their municipal taxes including property and water starting next month unless the administration recovers the arrears from these traders or clarifies its stand on the same.

The group expressed shock over how the civic administration was often prompt in hounding common citizens who default on their taxes but was surprisingly lenient towards such evaders who include wine and liquor shops, bars and restaurants and even jewelers. While few of the defaulters reportedly paid up, a majority are yet to cough up the same. The activists said the protest was part of its drive to wake up the TMC.

"Why is the administration biased towards recovery of dues from the traders who owe crores as octroi dues to the corporation? The officials have been prompt in penalizing common man and so we are encouraging the residents to stand up for their rights and stop paying taxes till the TMC comes up with its stand," said Unmesh Bagwe, secretary of the Thane Matadata Jagran Abhiyaan.

Kopri Bridge Work to Kick off by Jan

10th Oct 2017

In a major relief for lakhs of motorists plying daily between Mumbai and Thane, the construction work to release the bottleneck at Kopri road overbridge (RoB) in Thane that connects to the Eastern Express Highway (EEH) will start by January. The project, which will raise the number of lanes to four in each direction, will take around two years to complete.

This will come as a convenience to commuters who travel between Thane and Mumbai as the vehicles coming from EEH, which has 10 lanes, would get stuck at the narrow bridge, resulting in traffic jams.

Dilip Kawathkar, spokesperson, MMRDA, said, “We have already floated bids for appointing contractors for the project and we expect the contract to be awarded by year-end. The work will start thereafter.”

Kawathkar added, “It will take around two years to complete the augmentation work from the current 2+2 lanes to the proposed 4+4 lanes.”

The augmentation of the 60-year-old bridge has been stuck in the pipeline since 2003. Due to the delay, the project cost has increased more than 15 times from around Rs 9 crore in 2003 to Rs 135 crore, as of 2017.

However, there will not be any traffic diversions for the project, considering the construction will take place on the edges of the existing bridge. But the work will be undertaken in sync with the Central Railway, as it is also a rail overbridge.

The tender process has been initiated a year after the MMRDA approved Rs 235 crore for the project in October 2016.

But later, the designs were tweaked and the scope of the work was narrowed down, thus reducing the cost by Rs 100 crore. It is now being tendered at Rs 135 crore.


The expansion will be a relief for commuters who travel between Thane and Mumbai Remodelling of the 60-year-old bridge has been stuck in the pipeline since 2003 Project cost rose 15 times due to the delay

Young Generation Suffering from Heart Problems

10 October 2017

Image Source:
India has become the heart disease capital of the world, as the latest report by the World Health Organisation suggests heart diseases cause 45 per cent deaths in the country. Recent reports have suggested that 50 per cent of heart patients in India are between the ages of 20 to 40 years.
Heart disease in the Indian subcontinent is different from rest of the world. It affects younger people here at least a decade earlier than the west. Smoking remains the most important cause of heart disease in young people.

A recent study conducted by All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Delhi reports that 3 out of 5 people suffer from hypertension.

“In India, hypertension or increase in blood pressure due to the sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy dietary practices are among the primary reasons for heart diseases, especially in urban youth. Other factors include alcohol and tobacco consumption. The solutions are to develop healthy dietary practices and to ‘Walk & Workout’. 15-30 minutes of intense physical activity reduces chances of getting heart disease by 30 per cent,” said Dr Sanjay Mittal of Columbia Asia Hospital in Ghaziabad.

Dr Prathap C Reddy, Chairman, Apollo Hospitals said, “The demographic dividend that India enjoys is under severe threat from Non-Communicable Diseases. Unchecked, this disease burden will take away India’s best at their most productive age. Already around 20 percent of heart attacks observed across Apollo Hospitals are in the age group of 25-35 years. With these numbers, it is difficult to guarantee the heart health of young India in the future. Through its Healthy Heart initiative, Apollo Hospitals wants to ensure Indians get the best of counseling and treatment.”

Small Changes make powerful differences

  • 30 minutes of activity a day can help prevent heart attacks.
  • If one stops smoking, the risk for coronary heart disease is reduced to half.
  • Learn how to swap unhealthy food with healthier alternatives.
  • Keeping a healthy weight and limiting your salt intake will help to control your blood pressure
  • Reducing stress – doing meditation/yoga

Want to look your best this Diwali? Avoid these common beauty blunders

This Diwali Avoid these common beauty blunders

Beauty blunders, especially during the party-heavy festive season, are bound to happen. Misconceptions about skin care and make-up often lead to some commonly-made mistakes.

But to ensure glowing skin, here are a few points to be kept in mind:

Forgetting to remove make-up at night:

If you're guilty of this habit, you're not the only one. But that doesn't make it alright for you to do it. Going to bed with make-up on will make you wake up with dull skin and eruptions. Make-up blocks the pores, along with the skin's natural oil.

It often also contains ingredients that are potential skin irritants.

Also, the repair and restoration work of the skin occurs while we sleep at night, so it is important to keep the pores free and the skin clean.

Going to bed with a clean skin is a prime requisite for glowing skin.

Washing your face too often:

Yes, while you might think that this will keep your face clean and remove excess oil, but the fact is that too much soap and water destroys the natural acid mantle.

Healthy skin is slightly more acid than alkaline. Soaps make the skin too alkaline and this actually predisposes it to bacterial attack, leading to skin problems like acne. It also removes the natural glow.

Exfoliation… much is too much?:

Exfoliation of the skin with facial scrubs is very much a part of skin care. Scrubs contain grainy substances and ingredients that soften and remove dead skin cells. This brightens the skin and adds a glow. This is ideally suited to oily skin, as it also helps to dislodge and discourage blackheads. But, over-exfoliation of the skin can make the skin dry and rough, robbing it of its natural glow.

Exfoliate the skin once a week. For very oily skin, twice a week will do.

Facials for oily skin

It's a known fact that facial massages and moisturisers for oily skin are a no-no, but most people tend to disregard this. Massaging an oily skin with cream can lead to pore-clogging and acne. A salon facial treatment for oily skin should comprise of cleansing, exfoliation, toning, mask and protection. Oily skins do need intense moisturising during the dry winter season, but only light liquid moisturisers, or a matte moisturiser should be used.

Using a foundation lighter than your skin tone:

Using a foundation that is much lighter than your normal skin tone makes it look like a mask. The aim is to achieve a natural look, while covering up dark spots and blemishes.

First use a light coloured foundation on areas with dark blemishes. Pat it on the skin. Do not rub it into the skin. Then use a foundation which is closest to your normal skin colour all over the face, blending with a damp sponge.

Two-wheelers out, Space under Nitin flyover Turned into Recreation Zone

9th Oct 2017

THANE: From a neglected, poorly lit place that was occupied by garbage cans and two-wheelers, the space below Cadbury-Nitin Company flyover has undergone a complete transformation. The area has been used as a recreational spot for Thaneites.

With a dedicated walkway, garden, children play area, open gym and public toilets, residents from the lake city now have another place to unwind and relax.

At night, the place comes to life with dazzling lights. In a space-crunched city like Thane, the municipal corporation has made optimum use of the vacant space under the flyover.

Speaking about the beautification project, city engineer from the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) Anil Patil said, "The land was previously owned by the MMRDA and it was being used as a parking lot. Then we noticed that a lot of illegal activities were taking place there. So, municipal commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal proposed that the area be made available for public use, where people could enjoy open, green space. The MMRDA subsequently handed over the land to the TMC. The project has been partly funded by the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives of private enterprises. They had sponsored Rs 25 lakh for the equipments and other accessories."

Even though the place was thrown open to the public almost a year ago, no one used to use it as it was not lit up. However, now with the lights up the area has been gaining popularity. Young couples, children and senior citizens in the nearby area.

Pravin Koli, a resident of Ramchandra Nagar 2, said, "My wife and I often come here to unwind. On weekends, we take a stroll down this properly paved pathway. As there are security guards deplyed, we feel safe to roam in the night."

Ganpat Desai (65), too, takes his grandson to the kids play area that has been installed here. "It is a good place for my 3-year-old grandson to play. While he plays, I chit chat with a couple of senior citizens who visit the place at that time."

City Vendors see Lack of Spark in Sale of Firecrackers

9th Oct 2017

THANE: The Diwali festival is just around the corner and shops across the city have already started selling diyas, lanterns and rangoli. However, the sale of firecrackers in the city has gone down this season. One of the reasons for this drop could be the awareness drives being carried out by NGOs and the media regarding the ill-effects of crackers.

Adults as well as children have refrained from buying fireworks as it leads to noise and air pollution.
"We were not in favour of bursting crackers during Diwali. But our 12-year-old son used to insist on buying at least a few so that he could play with his friends. However, he recently started helping out at an animal NGO and realised how the noise affects animals. So this year, he refused to buy any crackers and even convinced his friends to refrain from doing so. He has restricted the fireworks shopping to sparklers," said Ashwini Pathak, a Vrindavan resident.

Vendors have complained that the sale of fireworks hasn't picked up yet. "The sale of crackers has dropped. We can't understand whether it is because less people are using them or because more stalls are yet to be set up. Whatever the reason, we hope the sales pick up or a lot of our stock will gather dust," said Sanjay Ahuja, a vendor from Kopri.

Meanwhile, many housing societies here are spreading this awareness through notices as well as on WhatsApp groups to ensure that this Diwali is celebrated in a eco-friendly way.

Kendriya Vidyalaya Assures Anxious Parents of Timely Portion Completion

8th Oct 2017

THANE: In an attempt to reassure anxious parents of students from the Kendriya Vidyalaya school about the timely completion of curriculum, the school's authorities have put up a notice on their website declaring that completion of curriculum is their top priority.

More than 1,400 students from the Kolshet-based school are way behind their academic schedule after the school building was declared unsafe for occupation by the Military Engineering Services (MES) earlier this year forcing authorities to stop classes since late August.

The sudden mid-term closure of the school move had triggered anxiety as there was no announcement on relocation or reopening of the classes.

As the parents of school students came together and pressurised the school to start hunting for new premises within the city whilst making temporary arrangements for students, the school authorities resumed classes for the students of all the grades through the past month at the Air Force School and Naval building within the air force station as well as a few classrooms in the KV premises.
However, while the classes of all the students have been taken up in batches, parents have been worried about completion of their curriculum.

"While we are relieved that the school has found temporary classrooms, our children are in school for hardly three to four hours, when the school is supposed to be running for at least five-and-half hours by law. The numbers of classes are divided through the year in a way that give the children enough time to understand and absorb information taught to them in school. Hurrying up will affect their learning," said Tarun Kumar Sinha, a parent of a class IX student.

The school authorities have also clarified that the school's periodical test exams are postponed and not cancelled and that the curriculum will be completed in time for it.

Important legal documents that home buyers should be aware of before buying a property

6 October 2017

Buying real estate property can be an expensive affair and it is next to impossible to buy a house without financial assistance. It is therefore necessary to take precautions and ensure that the hard earned money invested into such property is not only safe but secured to the fullest extent. This highlights the need for a proper due diligence. Also, a purchaser needs to be aware of the following the basic legal documents before purchasing an immovable property:

1) Original Title Documents

The title documents means the flow of title devolution from one owner to another and culminating with the current owner/ seller who is selling the property. In case the original title documents are not with the seller, then there are chances that the title documents are deposited with the banks/ financial institution for the purpose of creation of mortgage and the same also needs to be verified by the purchaser.

2) Search Report

The title search report is usually issued by the search clerk after conducting searches in the offices of the concerned sub-registrar of assurances, to verify the entries on record in relation to the subject property, and by virtue of that, one can trace of the flow/ devolution of title as mentioned aforesaid. Additionally, the search clerk also reports, as to whether there is any Lis Pendens (pending litigation) notice registered with the office of concerned sub-registrar of assurances.

3) Title Certificate

Title Certificate is issued by an Advocate based on the Title Search Report and the title documents verified by the Advocate in respect of the subject property. The Advocate should ideally also search in the concerned Courts as to whether any litigation is pending in relation to the subject property. Such a certificate should also cover the claims, if any received, in response to the public notice issued in the local newspapers, to be published, one in English and other in the Regional language.

4) No Due Certificate

No Due Certificate is issued by banks/ financial institution after repayment of the loan and clearance of charge/ mortgage by the banks/ financial institution, so as to rule out any claims by the Banks and to assure that the subject property is free from encumbrance.

5) Sanctioned Layout Plans

It means the layout plans of the structure, which has been duly sanctioned/ approved by the concerned competent authority including the municipal corporation. In case the subject structure is not in terms of the sanctioned layout plans, then it is not advisable to purchase such property, since it is a clear indication of violation of the sanctioned layout plans and applicable laws.

6) Occupation Certificate

The occupation certificate is issued by the corporation, certifying that the subject property/ structures constructed upto relevant floors of the building, can be occupied by the purchaser. This indicates that the developer/ erstwhile owner/ seller has constructed the structure in terms of the sanctioned layout plans and has also complied with various other building norms and obligations.

7) Bills and Receipts

Latest Property Tax bills, Electricity bills, maintenance bills together with the paid receipts should be verified, since the same clarifies about the arrears, if any, in relation to the subject property.

8) For Purchase of Land

In case of purchase of land, in addition to some of the above mentioned documents, one must also verify (i) 7/12 Extracts: This document indicates the name of the owner, name of the person having other rights such as, lessee/ mortgagee, the area admeasurements and cultivation in the land, and/ or (ii) Mutation Entries: This document records entries regarding devolution of title in relation to the subject property.

TMC to redraw DP for cluster redevelopment zones

5th Oct 2017

The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) is likely to start designing micro development plans (DP) soon for each of the eight cluster stretches identified in the city for implementing the redevelopment project to ensure a planned zone with all amenities.

According to the plan, the DP will have to be designed for each of the zones that will see a planned development post implementation of the cluster project that will factor in increased floor space index and allocation of amenities. The existing DP that was finalized in 2003 was not designed keeping in mind the cluster project and accordingly, before implementation of the redevelopment in any of the areas, the planners would require a fresh DP to be redrawn keeping in mind the planned infrastructure in specific areas and adjoining stretches.

The TMC is presently in the final stages of appointing a panel of experts to help them formulate an urban renewal policy that is a mandatory aspect for implementation of the cluster implementation. The micro DP is part of the policy and the team will be entrusted with redrawing it, explained an official.

Currently, the TMC has floated bids for hiring the panel of experts, who could be a mix of town planners and architects, who would take up planning each of the selected cluster zones.
The TMC has proposed eight clusters within the city limits, including those at Rabodi, Mumbra, Kalwa, Kisan Nagar and Lokmany Nagar among others. The cluster plan has been formulated to ensure the menace of illegal structures that occupies a notable volume of land in the city paves way for planned development. It is believed that over 11 lakh sqm area in the city is occupied by illegal constructions, most of which includes government land.

Officials explained the fresh DP would be redrawn as per the urban renewal policy that would mandate the allocation and use of all amenities required. The planning would be easier as the designers will have lots of horizontal space for allocation of amenities and no space would be lost to illegal structures or encroachments as is the present situation.

"The urban renewal policy will be an integral part for implementation of the cluster redevelopment project. We are in the process of selecting and appointing a panel of experts who would help scrutinize the clusters and design a development plan for the same," said a senior civic official.
The final decks for implementation of the cluster redevelopment plan in Thane was cleared in June 2017 after the Bombay High Court vacated its stay after the Mumbai Corporation submitted the impact assessment.

‘Hawker menace must be tackled, more entry & exit points need of the hour at stations’

5th Oct 2017

The hawker menace on the railway bridges and near the entry and exit points seems to be the pressing issue that has been plaguing the Thane suburban network. This observation was reportedly made by agencies involved in a joint safety audit that was conducted after surveying all suburban railway stations along the route on Tuesday morning, following instructions from railway minister Piyush Goyal last week.

A team of officials from various departments of the Central Railway, along with the railway protection force officials, government railway and city police and municipal authorities, surveyed the four stations within the Thane civic jurisdiction. The teams interacted with commuters and passenger associations and have made a note of their grievances. They also accessed the video footage of certain stations to know the crowd situation on foot overbridges (FoB), especially during during peak hours.
Hawker menace on bridges was the main problem, along with the need to construct more and wider bridges at stations like Diva and Thane. During the audit it was also found that more entry and exit points also need to be there. Several other issues like maintaining culverts and traffic management along the railway station premises was also discussed in the preliminary meeting.

''We have conducted a joint survey for the safety audit with senior officials from all agencies concerned in the development of the railway station premises and surrounding areas. We have made a note of the issues. The major one being the hawkers menace at all the stations,'' said one of the officials from the committee.

The report of the safety audit will be prepared by the Central Railway and will be table within the next few days.

Maniac about your Mobile?

October 2017

Do you panic or get irritated when your phone’s battery is dying or you’re having network issues?

Well, chances are that you are suffering from smartphone separation anxiety. A big drawback of this is that most of us are either unaware that we have it, or worse, are unwilling to accept it.

What research says

Researchers have deemed that smartphone separation anxiety is set to become an increasingly widespread problem. Also known as nomophobia, the term describes the feeling of panic or stress some folks experience when they’re unable to access or use their mobile phone. But according to new research, it has little to do with being unable to make or receive phone calls.Scientists from the City University of Hong Kong and the Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, South Korea, say the reason is that smartphones are so advanced and personal to us that they’ve actually become an extension of ourselves. Besides storing meaningful photos and messages, mobiles act as a window to a wide range of apps, websites and services that let people quickly access content that’s important to them.
The research said, “As smartphones evoke more personal memories, users extend more of their identity onto their smartphones,” adding, “When users perceive smartphones as their extended selves, they are more likely to become attached to the devices, which, in turn, leads to nomophobia by heightening the phone proximity-seeking tendency.” Though the scientists used a small sample group of 300 students in South Korea for their study, and admitted that it might not be wholly representative of all smartphone users, they believe smartphone separation anxiety will become a much bigger issue for people in the future, as technology becomes even more personalised and our dependency increases on it. The researchers added, “Recent smartphone and app development seems to inevitably increase users’ attachment, as the technology and related services become increasingly personalised and customisable.”

Expert speak

Do our experts agree with the study? “Have you met anyone who doesn’t have a smartphone?” asks Mansi Hasan, clinical psychologist and psychotherapist, tobacco treatment specialist, adding that smartphones have become one of the biggest addictions of our generation. She agrees with the study and that smartphones are not just phones but an extension of the owner’s identity.
Young and old addicted to smartphones.“People are reluctant to admit that they are addicted to their smartphones and usually these problems are not the primary concerns they come in with for help. The most common ages that people are usually brought in by their parents is 10-year-olds to young adults,” informs psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Dr Anjali Chhabria, adding that there have been a few cases of people aged 45 and above also are addicted to their smartphones.

One in four people Hasan meets

displays a smartphone dependence, which may or may not result in smartphone separation anxiety. So, the dependence numbers are high. But, one in 20 people definitely shows trends of smartphone separation anxiety, varying from mild to severe. “The most common age group that is affected is teenagers followed by the age group of 22-35 and then those between the ages of 40-55 years. People above the age of 45 also show addiction symptoms because smartphones have become the best source of distraction from stress, and the easiest way to connect with others,” she says.

Causes of Smartphone Addiction

Smartphones have become so important that we are unable to function without them. Our contacts, mails, communication, entertainment, socialising, sharing, getting information, work, personal life, social life is all dependent on one gadget. Of course, one may panic if one fine day this gadget crashes as if our entire life depends on it! The cause of anxiety is the high dependence and addiction it causes, explains Hasan.

Coping with it

Dr Chhabria says that it’s essential to understand that the smartphone is just another gadget used by us when needed. Phones are replacing real-time conversations, thus, wherever one finds that using phones can be avoided, do so. Keeping yourself busy with activities that don’t require the phone also helps in realising that life without the phone is possible.

Symptoms that your are ADDICTED to your Smartphone!

  • Fear and anxiety of losing the phone
  • Checking and rechecking the phone
  • Feelings of panic (heart racing, sweating, palpitation) when the phone is inaccessible
  • Carrying extra chargers, power banks to ensure the phone is charged at all times. Even carrying multiple phones
  • Irritability and anger in the absence of the phone, even if it may be for a short interval
  • Excessive use of the phone, which leads to reduced efficiency, relationship conflicts and cognitive malfunctioning
