Posted by newscap on February 10, 2008

The erstwhile Pseudo communist party and become a fascist force of today, which procures West Bengal for the onsalught by the corporate houses, the Communist Party of India(M) – CPM, has once again unveiled its atrocity over protesting Agrarians.

Not so long ago Nandigram was the bloodshed of the protesting villagers, where many last lives in the attack launched by CPM thugs during 2007. 2007 end saw the police voilently suffocating the protesting villegers in Nandigram over a  SEZ project. Even after this the government confused people by saying ‘we are not procurring land’ one day and an other day saying  ‘We are procurring from only those willing to give’. But it never confused and never failed in ascertaining its loyelty to the corporate houses.

 Thus happened once again a protest against SEZ by Forward Bloc party, which is a partner of CPM lead west bengal government. The agrarians protesting SEZ under the leadership of Forward Bloc party were fired by police on Tuesday last week. In this Five were shot dead.

TCS lay Off people having less than 2+ expereice with one month notice!!

Posted by newscap on February 5, 2008

Today TCS has sent an officiall mail individually to those who have less than 2 years of experience. The mail asked them to resign from TCS. They have been given one month notice period. It seems the initial head count comes around 2500 people.  The reason stated is – Q3 target is not acheived. 

Though people have worked as they use to work on any other quarters, it is because of Stock market gambling and USA subprime crisis TCS failed in reaching its targets. To mention it more clearly, it is not even a loss to TCS. It is just the lack of their profit that drives innocent employees out.

Incridible India???… No guys it is actually Insolent India.

RSS entering in to IT Arena – The News factory is ready!!

Posted by newscap on January 29, 2008

‘Software shakhas’ draw IT pros to RSS
28 Jan 2008, 0214 hrs IST, Gutam Siddharth, TNN
 

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh is adding colour to India’s booming IT sector: saffron.

Efforts to induct young, upwardly mobile IT professionals into its fold have gained momentum in “cybercities” across the country: from Pune to Hyderabad, and from Chennai to Noida.

RSS is drawing young professionals in substantial numbers in these cities to events called “IT Milans” with the ultimate aim of using the networking skills of the young to spread its message.

These “software shakhas” contain everything — from power-point presentations on RSS’s community work to yoga. In fact, video conferences will soon be added to this list.

IT professionals gather once a week in these cities and their numbers are rising.

“The first software shakha was held in Bangalore in 2003-04. It’s a new experiment to connect with emerging sections of professionals,” says Ram Madhav, former RSS spokesman.

“At the Pune IT Milan, more than 1,000 turned up, which isn’t a bad number.”

“The number of youths joining IT companies is increasing. We’ve introduced IT Milan to groom professionals towards RSS’s way of thinking,” says Pune-based Katcheshwar Sahane, western Maharashtra prant sanghachalak of RSS.

IBM fires Freshers!!!

Posted by newscap on January 24, 2008

In third world countries like India Multination corporate like IBM follow the Business model known as Profit Center/Cost Center. Indian IBM will be a separate Pvt Ltd which gets its projects outsourced from IBM USA. That is the logical client to IBM, India is IBM USA. This model ensures the profits of IBM USA, the corporate head, never affected, because if there is nothing left in India for their exploitation they would shift their projects easily to some other parts of the World, Like – IBM Srilanka, IBM Philippines etc. IBM is given here as an example.

Right now these MNCs are in a process to cut their cost spending. As part of this cost cutting process recently IBM has fired contract employees and Bench peoples. At least those who fired earlier were given couple of month’s time, hence they were able to find job. But now for these poor Freshers who came out of college and joined IBM with big dreams are being sacked on the same day they are informed about this.

Post 1990 India was opened up for the exploitation of World capital, from there to till now these IT/ITES companies have created only 16 Lakhs of Job. Where as during the same period the reforms happened in the SSI has wiped out those small industries stand on their own legs and has made almost all the SSI serving the MNCs and Comprador companies (Now SSIs doing contract jobs for MNCs/Comprador companies). Because of this process more than 12 Lakhs lost their jobs. And the story of Indian Agriculture is very very big one where crores of people lost their jobs and working as daily labors in cities for a pittance. And the same period saw the increase of students coming out of Engineering colleges, now stands almost ten lakhs. While, things are like this these MNCs/Comprador companies are enjoying 100% income tax exemption through out this period and till now. And it is this lay off now happening.

When these same companies never bothered to cull even their American employees they may not find it a big deal to quash out Indian employees.  This is what should be understood from this. Add to this, hire and fire is going to become a legal thing soon. And this is actually humiliating and undignified to working in IT companies like voiceless orphans.

India is First always!!! The record breaking Three seconds

Posted by newscap on January 23, 2008

The present and Future of India is killed by Globalisation. The country of death see Lakhs of farmers committing suicide apart from the deaths of crores of Children.

A recent report of UNICEF places India in First position in Children’s death under five.

It was previously mentioned couple of years ago that Mullnutrition of Indian Children is far worse than SubSaharan condition.

Excerpts: 

*****
The report places India at number one spot in children’s deaths across the globe – one child dying every three seconds.

****
In India, over 2.1 million children die annually before reaching their fifth birthday, 50% of them not
surviving even 28 days. Globally, the number stands at 9.7 million annually.

****
According to Gianni Murzi, UNICEF’s India representative, India is witnessing a paradoxical moment.

While the country is experiencing record growth rates and unprecedented wealth, it is faced with an incomparable child survival challenge. India carries the single highest share of neonatal deaths in the world,” he said.

****
Murzi said India accounts for over 20% of under-five children’s deaths. “What is more shocking is that 25% of children dying worldwide before the 20th day after their birth are from India. India’s future lies with these children. Focusing on the survival and development of its children is the best investment that any country can make.”

India is Growing…. Whose India?

My India is dying day by day….

Every three seconds, one child dies in India: UNICEF
23 Jan 2008, 0054 hrs IST,Kounteya Sinha,TNN

SMS NEWS to 58888 for latest updates
NEW DELHI: In India, over 2.1 million children die annually before reaching their fifth birthday, 50% of them not
surviving even 28 days. Globally, the number stands at 9.7 million annually.

The statistics are equally shocking among neonates – children newborn to a maximum age of 28 days old. While around 4 million children die within the first 28 days of life across the planet every year, India records around one million of these cases.

Of the 19 million infants in the developing world who have low birth weight (less than 2,500 grams), 8.3 million are in India. This means that approximately 43% of all the world’s infants who are born with a low birth weight are born in India.

Malnutrition continues to affect newborns and young children and has been found to be the underlying cause of up to 50% of under-five deaths.

About 55 million, or one-third of the world’s underweight children under age five, live in India with the worst affected states being Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Bihar, Gujarat, Orissa, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh and Meghalaya.

These are the findings of UNICEF’s latest ‘The State of the World’s Children-2008’ report released on Tuesday.

The report places India at number one spot in children’s deaths across the globe – one child dying every three seconds.

According to Gianni Murzi, UNICEF’s India representative, India is witnessing a paradoxical moment.

“While the country is experiencing record growth rates and unprecedented wealth, it is faced with an incomparable child survival challenge. India carries the single highest share of neonatal deaths in the world,” he said.

Murzi said India accounts for over 20% of under-five children’s deaths. “What is more shocking is that 25% of children dying worldwide before the 20th day after their birth are from India. India’s future lies with these children. Focusing on the survival and development of its children is the best investment that any country can make.”

Experts said that in 2006, for the first time in history, the number of annual child deaths worldwide declined to below the 10 million mark.

According to the report, simple and affordable life-saving measures, such as immediate and exclusive breastfeeding, immunization, insecticide-treated bed nets, integrated management of neonatal and child illnesses and vitamin A supplementation, can greatly reduce child deaths.

The report says the under five mortality rate (U5MR) for India was estimated as 76 for 2006. India has shown progress with the average annual rate of reduction in U5 mortality between 1990 and 2006 being around 2.6%.

Experts say: “If India is to reach the Millenium Development Goals by 2015, the average annual rate of reduction over the next nine years will have to be around 7.6%.”

According to the report, universalisation of early initiation of breastfeeding, within one hour of birth, would reduce neonatal mortality in India by 22%, universalisation of exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life would avert nearly 16% of young child deaths in India.

$300 bn in Six days – Stock Market bubble bursts in to the purses of Middile Class Yuppies!!

Posted by newscap on January 21, 2008

Last year saw waves of huge influx of foreign funds, which accounted not for material movement, in to Indian Stock market. Because of which Indian comprador capitalist found a windfall at their hands. This highly speculative bubble economy, a true synonym of gambling, really caused more trouble to the common people. Right from the job losses and national economy break down due to currency appreciation to the price rise aka inflation rate.

Though the entire scenario should be perceived as part of the world fund crisis a byproduct of Housing loan crisis in USA, the middle class yuppies encouraged by the quick money they earned from the bull driven economy invested their money in to the stock market to stack more quick bugs in to their account. But alas… the drama is over. Now the Capital crisis has bitten the middle class yuppie’s purses.

it is worth considering the fact that last week saw a huge influx of local capital in to stock market to maintain the stock market floating high.

West Bengal CPM State and Singur Farmers Sucide

Posted by newscap on January 19, 2008

Docs fear more suicides

Statesman News Service
KOLKATA, Jan. 18: Doctors of a voluntary medical organisation, who spoke to farmers to know the impact of land acquisition on aged farmers in early 2007, fear more suicides in the coming days in view of today’s Calcutta High Court order.

Four farmers of Singur, who had been either displaced from their plots or rendered jobless as agricultural labourers after the acquisition, have committed suicide in the past eight months.

They had been suffering from depression and spending their days in anxiety since they were evicted from their lands.
Doctors from the Medical Service Centre visited several villages in five affected mouzas of Singur and spoke to the farmers who were displaced from their lands.
The doctors, including psychologists, said 40 elderly farmers, whose lands were acquired by the state government without taking their consent, were suffering from depression and anxiety disorder. Some of them have developed insomnia.
The doctors also observed that the farmers were displaying suicidal behaviour.
“With the High Court judgment going in favour of the state government, farmers, who hoped that they would get back their lands after winning the legal battle, will receive a shock which might drive them to end their lives,” Dr Mridul Sarkar, an MSC doctor, said.
Dr Sarkar, among those who carried out the survey, said they spoke to at least 1,000 farmers in Singur and found that 40 of them had been suffering from depression and insomnia.
All of them are aged farmers. “The survey report has gained significance because the Calcutta High Court verdict has gone against the farmers. The farmers need counselling,” the doctor said.
