Roshan life has been the best teacher of lessons he now willingly shares with his wide fanbase The actor says there have been instances when he almost gave up in life but he overcame that feeling with a new learning everytime The actor who has come up with a video to motivate people to ‘Keep Going’ in life says he credits “all the adverse moments” in his life — including his separation from Sussanne Khan — for where he is today “If you just look at it objectively and without attaching it to being a Hrithik Roshan story and view it just as a journey I think there’s a lot to learn Do not feel disempowered by the situations in your life They are there to serve a purpose they are there to teach you something” Hrithik told IANS here Often Hrithik shares words of wisdom with fans He

film — things like dancing jumping falling twisting break dance and all of that” Hrithik said He remembers it as a “big blow” as he was even advised to rethink his career which today he finds “foolish” “What I learnt from then on is that you must arm yourself with enough information and not confine yourself to one person’s point of view” The second life-changing moment he says was when his father Rakesh Roshan was shot at in 2000 “It was so disempowering to see him in the hospital with blood on the white sheets It took away all meaning from what I was doing… From being an actor doing dance doing a comedy scene” said the 43-year-old See pics |Kaabil success bash: Hrithik Roshan Yami Gautam celebrate their film withfans He says it was then that he introspected that when something in

devastating effect again on my future — as in what I could do and what I could not but by then I was so solid in my head I felt like there was no stop to my career and the possibilities So when I look back and join all the dots every single time that my life seemed that it was over or it seemed like I could not keep going it was only giving me fodder and information so that one day I could build

encourage these lobbyists but did he notice how ugly the exercise was (Source: File Photo) Top News So the Indian economy has survived the imminent exit of the Governor of the Reserve Bank For months it felt as if the departure of Raghuram Rajan would signal not just the collapse of the economy but of India Economists and commentators both Indian and foreign said this in different ways so many times that it became a political event instead of just the small matter of an official being replaced It is because it became such a huge political event that I feel the need to comment on it this week even if monetary policy is something that I have little understanding of What I understand well is political lobbying and so I found myself appalled that so many lobbyists came forward to warn of dire consequences for India if the RBI Governor failed to get a second term It is possible that the Governor himself did not encourage these lobbyists but did he notice how ugly the exercise was Almost not a day has gone by in recent months when someone or other did not come forward in the print media or on television to predict the imminent demise of the Indian economy if the Reserve Bank lost its Governor Oddly enough some of the sternest warnings came from foreign commentators who technically should not have any say in the appointment of Indian officials Share This Article Related Article Watch Video: What’s making news The truth is that I cannot remember the last time that an Indian official evoked so much international commentary or applause It is hard to understand why Could it be because Mr Rajan made himself into such a prominent public intellectual He maintained a dignified silence as RBI Governors should in the initial months of his appointment But no sooner did Narendra Modi become Prime Minister than he took to commenting on almost everything The first time I noticed a comment that seemed unrelated to monetary policy was when he offered a critique of the way Uber conducts its business After this almost not an issue went by on which Mr Rajan did not have something to say and more often than not he seemed always to take a view that belittled the government he served Where was the need to speak in lofty tones about the importance of ‘tolerance’ at the height of last year’s intolerance debate It was a fraudulent debate in the first place or it would not have disappeared like a whiff of smoke the way it has but if it was bad enough to have movie stars leap into the fray it was a lot worse to have the RBI Governor get into the thick of it As the months went by he seemed to grow in his new political role to such an extent that in one TV interview when he was asked if he was planning a career in politics Mr Rajan smiled and said that this was for his wife to decide Excuse me Was it so hard to just give a straight answer Dr Manmohan Singh has proved that it is quite easy for RBI governors to move from monetary policy to politics What upset me personally was the manner in which Mr Rajan became so much bigger than the RBI that even gossip columnists had comments to make about his ‘rock star’ good looks At no time did he discourage this kind of silly adulation and instead chose to almost daily say something that would make headlines So if he was not lecturing us about the importance of tolerance and one-eyed kings in the land of the blind he was busy telling businessmen how to do business Not even after announcing that he was not seeking a second term has he desisted from giving speeches which sort of makes you feel that the sooner he goes back to teaching in Chicago the better it might be for India If there is a lesson to be learned it is that officials should never believe that they are bigger than the institutions they serve On account of weak prime ministers in the past three decades there has been an abundance of this genre of official and to a man they have ended up doing more harm than good Now that we have a Prime Minister who won a full majority for the first time in thirty years he would do well to recognize his power and use it to put cocky officials in their place As for those who predicted doom and gloom for India if Mr Rajan abandoned our broken down country for his teaching job in Chicago the lesson they should have learned by now is that they ended up harming his cause more than doing it good Lastly can we hope that the next RBI Governor reverts to playing the silent and dignified role that governors past played (This article first appeared in the print edition under the headline ‘Too big

controversy for the simple reason that the BJP is redefining itself as a party for all not just Hindus Narendra Modi would prefer to campaign around the theme of ‘sabka vikas’ — inclusive development

nation is for everyone — Hindu Muslim and all other minorities But the BJP members want more than just a new platform Hence ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’ We could all say ‘Jai Hind’ and no one Muslim or

Congress If it fails to retain either Assam or Kerala the death knell will begin to sound This is especially true for Assam where Tarun Gogoi must be hoping for a fourth term Since the national leadership is for the family no one with a serious ambition at the national level to get high up can stay in the Congress If it fails to retain power at the state level the message will be clear to the talented Congress members: set up your own Congress Party That steady fragmentation could be just around the corner unless the Congress can be popular again The Congress has lost its old coalition of voters The young are not with the Congress Rahul Gandhi has been developing a strategy He shows up everywhere there is trouble and he then blames Modi For a small opposition party this makes a lot of sense But there are dangers for an erstwhile national party as we saw in the JNU event If he has to piggyback on the CPM to win the young voters the Congress may get locked into a narrow alleyway

rode to power in Pimpri-Chinchwad by accusing the Ajit Pawar-led NCP regime of corruption is facing yet another embarrassing situation as its PCMC administration is facing allegations of indulging in wrong practices This time a top PCMC health and medical official has raised doubts about the fair conduct of the civic administration in the matter of giving promotion — a charge the administration has denied Dr Anil Roy acting medical officer of health (MoH) in a letter to PCMC Joint Commissioner (administration) who has offered to retire voluntarily has cast aspersions on Departmental Promotion Committee which he said sidestepped his claim to promotion as MoH and recommended the promotion of Additional MoH Dr Pavan Salve to the post which was not in keeping with the rules and regulations A copy of the letter is in possession of The Indian Express In the letter Dr Roy said “After giving me promotion as MoH four years back the civic administration seems to have suddenly realised that my promotion was not appropriate for the post I suspect that the administration has become a victim of the political pressure sought to be brought upon it by a complaint made by Dr Salve… I also believe that money has changed hands…” he alleged in the letter When contacted Dr Roy said “What I have said is that I have certain doubts about the way the committee denied me promotion… I have doubts whether there was any financial dealing in denying me my rightful claim” he said adding that the administration has been unfair to him Dr Roy said he has been holding the post of acting MoH since June 1 2013 and has discharged his duties with full sincerity and loyalty He said he was promoted by the general body as MoH in 2015 “All the municipal commissioners during this period had praised my work calling it outstanding There have been no complaints against me” Yet he said the post is being snatched from him and that’s why he does not want to remain with the civic body When contacted Municipal Commissioner Shravan Hardikar said they have gone by the directions of the state government “The Departmental Promotion Committee has followed all the relevant process after the state government asked us to do so And accordingly the committee has given its decision…” he said The civic chief said he has not seen the letter written by Dr Roy to the administration “If he has any complaint or wants to make allegation there are appropriate authorities like the ACB…he can take his complaint there” he said The immediate provocation for Dr Roy’s move to quit PCMC is the civic Law Committee’s ruling on September 9 to appoint Dr Pavan Salve as MoH by replacing him The PCMC administration had placed the matter before the Law Committee after the state government had on March 14 this year directed the civic body to place the promotion of Dr Roy and Dr Salve before the Departmental Promotion Committee while considering their eligibility and seniority for the post The government specifically said that the committee should look into who was eligible for the post on the day the post fell vacant Accordingly the Depart-mental Promotion Committee ruled that Dr Salve was eligible for the post which fell vacant in 2012 However Dr Roy contended that Dr Salve was not eligible as he did not have the prescribed qualification of Diploma in Public Health “Besides when the post fell vacant Dr Salve had not renewed his medical registration which is mandatory under the norms Also he had not registered his additional qualification with the Medical Council of India” he said adding that even State Director of Health Services had upheld his appointment as MoH Dr Roy said though Dr Salve had superior qualification he lacked the prescribed qualification under the gazette notification of 1985 “He is an MD-PSM while I have done MBBS-DPH Though his qualification is better than mine Dr Salve does not hold the mandatory qualification of Diploma in Public Health which is required for MoH’s post” he said The civic chief however said that the Law Committee’s decision was not final “The civic general body takes decisions in matters of appointing officials to different posts Accordingly we have placed the matter before the civic general body After the general body’s ruling the matter will go before the state government for ratification” Hardikar said For all the

Officials said that while the drug de-addiction centres has been renamed as Navjeevan Kendra (new life) the rehabilitation centres have been named as Navnirmaan Kendra (new start) The orders to rename the centres were issued on Monday after the proposal was cleared by the Health Minister Brahm Mohindra A senior government official told The Indian Express that Director Health Punjab has been instructed to take further action in the matter The official said that the proposal of renaming the center was received from a psychiatrist and its aim is to remove the stigma attached to the problem “We have received feedback from the ground Most addicts don’t prefer to visit these centers because of the negative perception which exist in the society” said the official adding “We are hopeful that it would at least help us change this negative perception” “This is the first step taken to end the negative perception which exist in the society about these centres” Dr Sandeep Bhola a psychiatrist who had proposed the names told The Indian Express “This move is important as we need to end this stigma Whether the number of the drug addicts would increase or not that is a separate question But to delink the stigma attached to these centres is need of the hour” Dr Atul Ambekar of All India Institute of Medical Sciences( AIIMS) National Drugs Dependence Treatment Centre in Ghaziabad however believes that renaming is not going to make huge impact “They serve only small number of patients But for larger majority what is required is long term outpatient treatment We can try renaming the
