Only some Rs 65 odd crores have been distributed by SEBI to those who came forward with claims. That is not good news for the market regulator, whose basic premise of cleaning Sahara revolved around the billion dollar argument of unpaid consumers. Now, this answer of why the cash was not distributed to the millions of unpaid consumers must come from SEBI..
It is a political discourse where we have to prove our nationalism at every turn of the road, or justify what we eat or wear. It is one where we re learn the changed names of cities and train stations. How is it that any political party can come to power promising a million things, and then just turn the game around altogether once it gets there? It’s like promising a cricket match to the audience and once they are tuned to the TV, giving it a card game instead!.
The establishment’s favorites, Rep. Jack Kingston and businessman David Perdue, will square off in a July 22 runoff. Either will present a tough challenge for Democrat Michelle Nunn, who still has a fighting chance, polls indicate, to steal a seat from the Republican column..
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is considering banning the catch of tiger sharks and three species of hammerhead sharks, and it will vote on the issue next month. Neil Hammerschlag, who directs the marine conservation program at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, noted that these restrictions can make a significant difference.

“But just as it is the responsibility of Muslims around the world to root out misguided ideas that lead to radicalization, it is the responsibility of all Americans of every faith to reject discrimination,” Obama said. “It is our responsibility to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country.

The Songkran holiday traditionally involved locals visiting temples to pour water on Buddhist statues as a symbol of purification and washing away sins and bad luck.But the public celebrations have over the years turned into several days of dance parties and alcohol fuelled water fights where locals and tourists soak each other with buckets and pump action water guns.Thailand however is currently beset by its worst drought in decades and is ruled by a junta keen to break the country’s reputation for sybaritic excess.There were initial calls for voluntary restraint and suggestions that celebrants should simply sprinkle drops of water on others or use mister spray bottles.But in a country where even the state tourism agency has promoted Songkran with images of revellers toting high power water guns, it remained unclear how dry the next few days will be.In Bangkok, the celebrations in the infamous backpacker haunt of Khao San Road will be cut back from four days to two, while in the business centre of Silom, one day is being lopped off. They are also supposed to end at 9pm rather than run past midnight.The city government will no longer run or allow free water distribution centres and public consumption of alcohol is also supposed to be banned.The moves to restrict water use come as Thailand faces a severe drought caused by both the El Nino weather phenomenon and man made factors. In the rice growing north, the land is bone dry and dams are near empty, while there are dire predictions of taps running dry later in the year in Bangkok.
