UNICEF emergency supplies for Rohingya refugee children arrive in Bangladesh

DHAKA, Bangladesh, 24 September 2017:  The first consignment of UNICEF emergency supplies for hundreds of thousands of refugee Rohingya children and their families has arrived in the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka.
The cargo plane arrived from Copenhagen with 100 tons of supplies comprising water purifying tablets, family hygiene kits, sanitary materials, plastic tarpaulins, recreational kits for children and other items.
The supplies will provide urgently-needed assistance to the estimated quarter of a million Rohingya child refugees who are among the 429,000 people who have fled across the border from neighbouring Myanmar in recent weeks. The refugees are now living in desperate conditions in southern Bangladesh.
“Ensuring that children and families have safe water for drinking and washing is absolutely essential in order to protect them against diarrhoea and other waterborne diseases,” said Edouard Beigbeder, UNICEF Representative in Bangladesh. “This is a very real threat given the current situation in the camps and makeshift settlements where the Rohingya are now living, especially amid the current heavy rains”.
The next consignments consisting of – school bags, tents, early childhood development kits, family hygiene and dignity kits, tarpaulin and nutrition materials – are also on its way to Bangladesh.
The supplies will be delivered by truck to the southern city of Cox’s Bazar, where an expanding international response is mobilising to address the plight of the growing number of Rohingya refugees arriving in Bangladesh.
UNICEF is seeking US$ 7.3 million in additional funding for its work in southern Bangladesh over the next three months, but additional funds will be necessary as the refugee population continues to grow.


Today, on the 2nd anniversary of the SDGs, thousands of citizens in over 107 countries and cities around the world, including in India will raise our voices and hold our world leaders accountable to #ACT4SDGs.

On 25 September 2015, world leaders agreed to a definitive plan for the planet and its people by adopting 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The SDGs are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. If the 193 governments who signed the SDGs hold to their commitments, the results will be extraordinary. The SDGs could achieve:
  • An end to extreme poverty by 2030 that condemns millions of people, especially women and girls, to an early death, poor education and ill health.
  • A turning point in the soaring levels of inequality and discrimination.
  • An accelerated transition to 100% renewable energy, ensuring policies that take care of people and planet.
Photos and stories from all parts of the world will be aggregated and showcased on for all to see how people take actions for SDGs.

 Press Conference on Karwan-e-Mohabbat (a peace walk)


What: Press Conference on Karwan-e-Mohabbat (a peace walk)
When: September 25, 2017 at 3 p.m
Where: Lawn (ground floor), Press Club of India,  Raisina Road
The Karwan-e-Mohabbat set out on September 4 from Assam as a collective response of love, atonement, conscience and justice, to the climate of hate, violence and fear that has enveloped many parts of the country. It traversed eight states, where the members of the Karwan met over fifty families that were targets of hate violence, whether in the form of lynching and mob attacks, Dalit atrocities or violent communal targeting by the police. The states where the Karwan travelled are Assam, Jharkhand, coastal Karnataka, Delhi, Western Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat.
The Karwan found a situation of enormous, settled, everyday fear among Muslims, Christians and Dalits in many parts of the country. It found that they had very little expectation of justice from the state. In many states, it found that the police itself is assuming the tasks of the lynch mob against minorities. It also found very little remorse in the majority community in many places where the violence actually occurred, although at the same time the Karwan was met not just with stones and footwear but with rose petals and tremendous goodwill for its message of peace and love.
In order to share what they observed and felt through this unique journey, members of the Karwan-e-Mohabbat will address both the press and other citizens who are interested, from 3 pm onwards at Press Club of India (Lawn), Raisina Road.

We request you attend/ assign someone to cover this

Science Po Launch

Sciences Po, the leading French university in Social Sciences, is launching a new Bachelor of Arts programme in September 2017. The newly revamped multidisciplinary programme will focus on humanities, civic engagement and distinct regional specialisations.

Ms. Laurence Souloumiac, Director of Centre for Asia and her team would be pleased to interact with members of the press on Wednesday, 27th September to discuss the new B.A. programme, internationalization of Sciences Po, its collaborations with Indian institutions (Ashoka University, Jamia Milia and others), and its vision of social inclusion.

Welcoming the endeavour, H.E. Alexandre Ziegler, Ambassador of France to India, said,

“As an alumnus myself, I cannot enough recommend Sciences Po’s multidisciplinary approach. Each of its campuses, spread over seven French cities, offers students a focus on a specific region of the world, with the one in Le Havre dedicated to Asia. Its highly global outlook has drawn pupils from 150 countries apart from France, who make up half of the 13,000 students on its rolls. Our objective is to attract ever more talented Indian students to France and offer them the best education and opportunities. I am delighted of Sciences Po’s involvement in India and proud of the growing Sciences Po alumni community in this country.”

Hamid Ansari Jihadist relations should be investigated:VHP

Hamid Ansari Jihadist relations should be investigated: Dr. Surendra Jain
 New Delhi. Sept. 24, 2017. Former Vice President of India, Hamid Ansari stands exposed after attending a programme of the terrorist organisation Popular Front. Dr. Surendra Kumar Jain, the International Joint General Secretary Vishwa Hindu Parishad(VHP) today said that Hamid Ansari was spreading dissatisfaction among the Muslim community even when he was holding the post of Vice President. He was covertly involved in implementing the agenda of terrorists even then. Now he can be seen working as the patron of jehadi organisations. VHP demanded thorough investigation of his relations with such organisations & idiologies while he was in office of the Vice president of Bharat. The nation should get to know which organisations and ideologies were being encouraged by Ansari when he was the Vice President of the country so that in the future no one else resorts to any kind of misuse of this constitutional position, he added.

Dr. Surendra Jain said that the nation knows the Popular Front is nothing but a new and extended avatar of SIMI. Not only is it involved in jehadi and terrorists activities, it is also involved in the dastardly killing of patriots in Kerala. The security agencies are working towards unravelling its role in love jehad which is a threat to national security. This fact that Hamid Ansari attended a programme of such an organisation which has a blot on its name, has exposed him. The VHP had already expressed doubts about Hamid Ansari’s intentions after his controversial statements. Now that he has attended a programme organised by Popular Front, thereby encouraging terrorists, this has proved our doubts to be true.
Through the statement issued by shri Vinod Bansal, the national spokesperson VHP, the Dr. Jain demands that the government should investigate his relations with the jehadi organisations while he was holding the post of the Vice President. The nation should get to know which organisations and ideologies were being encouraged by Ansari when he was the Vice President of the country so that in the future no one else resorts to any kind of misuse of this constitutional position.

DFID should step in and provide emergency funding

Dear friend
International donors have cut aid to 9,000 displaced villagers from Shan and Karen States.
They fled their farms and villages following attacks by the Burmese Army, and now most live in jungle and mountain camps in Burma, forced to rely on international aid. Some have lived there for ten years or more.
From October they will no longer receive essential aid, and risk being forced to return to their villages despite it not being safe for most of them to return because of Burmese Army soldiers and landmines.

A child living in one of the camps for displaced villagers in Karen State.
The Department for International Development (DFID) and other donors and aid agencies are facing unprecedented challenges with more than 400,000 Rohingya who have arrived in Bangladesh after fleeing attacks by the Burmese Army. But that doesn’t mean they should forget other people who have fled attacks by the military.
DFID should step in and provide emergency funding to local community organisations which can provide aid to the villagers. In the longer term, it should coordinate with other international donors to ensure that there is funding for internally displaced people and refugees on the Thailand-Burma border so that they can return home when it is safe, or have another safe place to live.
No people should be forced to return home when it is not safe for them to do so.

Take action now!

Thank you for your support.

Honey Baisoya lords over Noida Golf Course once again,

Honey Baisoya lords over Noida Golf Course once again, registers emphatic nine-shot win 
Prize_Presentation_picture (1)
Baisoya bags second title of the season, moves to fourth in PGTI Order of Merit 
Noida, September 22, 2017: Delhi’s Honey Baisoya successfully defended his title at the PGTI Players Championship at Noida Golf Course with an emphatic nine-shot triumph on a rainy Friday. Baisoya, who completely dominated the final round, signed a card of four-under-68 on Friday that took his total to 19-under-269 for the week.
The 21-year-old Honey’s second win of the season earned him a prize cheque of Rs. 4,50,000 and as a result lifted him from sixth to fourth place in the PGTI Order of Merit.
Bengaluru’s C Muniyappa (70) came in second at 10-under-278 at the Rs. 30 lakh event.
Honey Baisoya (66-69-66-68), the overnight leader by a massive seven shots, continued from where he left in round three. Honey, who had closed the previous round with two consecutive birdies, came out firing birdies on the first three holes in round four thanks to some long conversions to further build on his lead.
Baisoya, who looked in total control through the day, added three more birdies against two bogeys to his card from the eighth to the 18th to cruise to his fourth professional victory.
Baisoya said, “The Noida Golf Course is turning out to be my favourite venue as I’ve won my second title here this year. This course really suits my game. I’m delighted with my consistency in the second half of the season since I’ve finished in the top-6 in the last four events. The Order of Merit title is definitely on my radar now.
“I’ve been positive in my approach and that has paid off. My confidence has also grown with each passing event. I didn’t feel the pressure at any stage today since my lead was never under threat. The conditions were really tough today because of the heavy rain. However, after the three birdies at the start, I knew I didn’t have to do anything extraordinary but just play regulation golf.”
C Muniyappa’s (69-71-68-70) runner-up finish was his best of the season. His fourth round of 70, the only sub-par round of the day besides Baisoya’s 68, featured four birdies and two bogeys and helped him finish four strokes ahead of third-placed Udayan Mane.
Bengaluru’s Udayan Mane struck a final round of 72 to claim third place at six-under-282. Mane thus moved up from third to second position in the PGTI Order of Merit.
Noida’s Vikrant Chopra secured fourth place at five-under-283.
Amardip Sinh Malik and Gaurav Pratap Singh were the other two Noida golfers who finished in the top-10. Both Amardip and Gaurav ended the week in tied eighth at three-under-285.
