Tuesday asked the police to ensure that no one uses stage and loudspeaker at a south Delhi ground for Chhath Puja by two organisers and maintain law and order The court said that public address system should be used only by the police to address a large number of people gathered at the Chhath ground in Aya Nagar "This court is of the view that Delhi Government may consider the suggestion made by district magistrate (south) last year and implement it in the present season" Justice Vibhu Bakhru said The court also asked Additional Commissioner of Police (Licensing) to immediately issue an advisory directing that no person is allowed to use stage and public address system which should only be used by the police to address the public to maintain law and order Representational image PTI The court passed the order while disposing of a plea filed by Purvanchal Chhath and Sanskritik Vikas Samiti a registered society which claimed to be organising Chhath Puja for people of Bihar and eastern Uttar Pradesh for last 24 years The Samiti in its petition filed through advocate Ritesh Sharma sought direction prohibiting the police from issuing a licence to another society Purvanchal Sanskritik and Samajik Vikas Manch for organising Chhath Puja at the ground on 26- 27October It said the ground was not large enough to accommodate two organisers and may create law and order problem as every year around 10000 people gathered there to worship Sun God Additional standing counsel Satyakam who appeared for Delhi government and Delhi Police’s ACP told the court that the licences were granted for the puja by the police after receiving reports from the local police and traffic police He said law and order situation was examined and licences were issued after examining all aspects and that it was a considered decision to grant the licence to more than one organiser as Chhath was a big religious programme He also argued that it was a personal and political fight of the petitioner and not a legal fight The petition claimed that the president of the other organiser Purvanchal Sanskritik and Samajik Vikas Manch was a member of BJP and he was seeing the function as an opportunity for his political ambition By: IANS | New York | Published: September 20 2017 6:24 pm Sindoor powder shouldn’t be sold or used unless it is lead free Lead is a highly toxic poison associated with lower IQ behavioral problems and growth delays in children who often are exposed hand to mouth (Source: Thinkstock Images) Top News Sindoor a red powder used during Hindu religious and cultural ceremonies has unsafe levels of lead a highly toxic poison associated with lower IQ behavioural problems and growth delays in children says a study that examined samples of the cosmetic powder collected from India and the US Sindoor also called vermillion is used by women to place a bindi or red dot cosmetically on their foreheads Married women also put it in their hair and it is used by men and children for religious purposes In a study published in the American Journal of Public Health the researchers reported that that 83 per cent of the samples collected from the US in New Jersey and 78 per cent collected from India had at least 10 microgram of lead per gram of cosmetic powder About one-third of the samples exceeded the 20 microgram of lead per gram of cosmetic powder limit imposed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) “There is no safe level of lead” said co-author of the study Derek Shendell Associate Professor at Rutgers The State University of New Jersey “That’s why we believe sindoor powder shouldn’t be sold or brought into the United States unless it is lead free” Shendell said Lead is a highly toxic poison associated with lower IQ behavioral problems and growth delays in children who often are exposed hand to mouth In the study the researchers including Manthan Shah a scientist with the US Environmental Protection Agency tested 118 samples of sindoor which included 95 from South Asian stores in New Jersey and 23 from stores in Mumbai and New Delhi Although other cosmetics such as kajal and tiro eye products used in India and Nigeria have been banned by the FDA because of elevated lead content the FDA only issued a general warning about sindoor after testing by the Illinois Department of Health a decade ago discovered a high lead content in one brandThe researchers said at a minimum there is a need to monitor sindoor lead levels and make the public aware of the potential hazards “We should be screening children from the south Asian community to make sure they do not have elevated levels of lead in their blood before we discover more dead brain cells” William Halperin Professor at Rutgers University said For all

people assumed that journalist Sumana Nandy’s assault on the ‘rogue’ channel and its boss over the tilted coverage given to the Gauri Lankesh murder led to her resignation That nexus made it an exciting news report This was the good fightFile image of Arnab Goswami News18 Fact is she had resigned from Republic TV months ago citing personal reasons Nor has she made this departure a secret One suspects that she is appalled by the ‘news value’ of her statement on Facebook and it is a bit unfair on her that some of the comments critique her for grandstanding That does not seem to be the intent here although Indian journalists are fast learning the trick of high-profile and indignant resignations which can then be traded for another job They wear their departure like a suit of armour and gone are the days when you quit because you did not agree with policy and you shut the door behind you and you did not look back Oh yes and you did not badmouth the organisation you had left It just was not done In Nandy’s case to be fair she has full right to comment on Republic TV and the colour of its prejudice Just as much as anyone else As for Arnab Goswami you get what you see He may not be your cup of tea but while credible people are willing to play on an uneven playing field where the dice are loaded against them and do this night after night and thereby transfer their credibility onto him why should he complain He tells you up front you are going to be a pawn on his chessboard and that he will outshout you be obnoxious and twist and turn facts as he likes That is his USP and he manipulates it with dexterity If he trivialises vital news events and turns everything into entertainment he has an audience that laps it up Go figure It is his ball and his rules and his turf You go there at your peril and if you are naive or ambitious () enough to do that or worse actually be part of that sort of plastic news team stop with the moaning and groaning There are enough sensible people who would not go there for love or money Who needs such a platform But there are others who would because they justify their presence on grounds of exposure a chance to say their piece or just plain cash With so many mini-me Goswamis on TV in different languages editorialising the news is now the fashion If the original progenitor of such stuff takes it to a ridiculous length blame those who sponsor him give him wealth go on his show and watch him… You don’t like it don’t be part of it but stopping him or his team from entering the Press Club where activists are
