Luxury air travel could be a thing of the past as airlines struggle to woo budget-conscious passengers away from economy in the wake of the global financial crisis. Major carriers such as Delta and British Airways now offer first class luxuries such as onboard beds, showers, and internet access. Emirates have gone as far as offering spas and private suites. Yet the majority of people who experience these services are flying on upgrades, according to Peter Yesawich, CEO of Ypartnetrship, a travel marketing company which tracks travel trends. Even the business sector can no longer be relied upon to purchase more high-end airline travel. Since the economic downturn, businesses have embraced the ease with which the internet can provide competitive ticket pricing, including for business travel, according to Mr Yesawich.”Every time airlines go in for this high-end luxury service, it’s a sign things are getting overheated,” said Jami Counter, senior director of TripAdvisor. Counter refers to the fate of Legend Airlines as a way to explain the possible future for luxury air travel in the wake of the economic downturn. The company announced a high-end business class service out of Dallas in 2000, but lasted less than a year after the dot.com downturn. The similar fate suffered by high-end airlines L’Avion, which was bought out by British Airways, and Eos has led to most boutique airlines becoming low on cost and low on luxury, said Steve Loucks, vice president of Travel Leaders. But according to Counter, there will always be a place for luxury travel, just not necessarily through major airlines. Today’s luxury traveller is more likely to opt for private jets, or even fractional jet ownership, which Counter likened to a time share.”It’s flexible. You can tap into it, so it’s a nice alternative to owning a jet,” he said.

President Manoj Tiwari PTI Photo Top News The Delhi BJP on Tuesday stepped up its attack on the AAP saying it will lodge a complaint with the Election Commission for the party’s alleged involvement in corruption cases and seek its derecognition The saffron party’s Delhi unit chief Manoj Tiwari at a press conference in Delhi alleged that there were “gross discrepancies” in the figures of donation amount shown by the AAP in its affidavits party website and what it has declared to the EC “One private news channel has done an ‘expose on the AAP’ when it comes to donations received by it And there is ‘huge difference in the figures shown in its affidavit and what the Arvind Kejriwal-led party has told the EC” he alleged “And discrepancies exist in donation figures for both years 2013-14 and 2014-15” Tiwari said The Delhi BJP chief read out figures quoting from the channel’s claim “So in 2013-14 the AAP showed a donation amount of Rs 5064 crore in the affidavit Rs 1982 crore on its party website but to the EC it told that the figure stood at only Rs 6 crore “We wonder if this missing amount was routed in the corruption cases against the party that its own (sacked) Cabinet minister has highlighted” he alleged “So based on the past and this new corruption case a delegation of the party will go and meet the chief election commissioner at 4 PM to lodge a complaint We will also urge the EC to probe the entire accounts of the AAP And based on the string of irregularities being exposed we will also ask the EC to derecognise the party” Tiwari said For all the latest Delhi News download

during the Cincinnati Pride parade Saturday (Source: Associated Press) Related News This weekend if you have opened your Facebook page there’s a good chance that the rainbow colours are all over your screen On Facebook people are changing profile pictures with gay pride colours thanks to a neat Facebook tool called facebookcom/celebratepride The reason: On June 26 the US Supreme Court ruled that right to marriage was a Constitutional Right and that same-sex marriage was a part of this The Supreme Court of United States’ judgement reads “No union is more profound than marriage for it embodies the highest ideals of love fidelity devotion sacrifice and family In forming a marital union two people become something greater than once they were As some of these petitioners demonstrate marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death It would misunderstand these men and women to say that they disrespect marriage Their plea is they respect it respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfilment for themselves” Naturally the historic judgement was greeted with cheers by the LGBT community and their supporters in the United States SCOTUS ruled that marriage was no longer just a union between a man and a woman as it was earlier believed And while it was certainly a moment to celebrate gay pride in US many in India too had changed their profile picture to show their support Of course in India gay marriage is a distant dream since our own Supreme Court had ruled on December 11 2013 that Section 377 which criminalises homosexual acts was still legal The Supreme Court of India said courts are not the appropriate authority to strike down Section 377 and it is the Parliament which has to legislate upon the matter An earlier judgement by the Delhi High Court had deemed Section 377 illegal giving hope to the LGBT community in India To put it mildly India and US are miles apart when it comes to their stand on Gay Rights But from behind the rainbow coloured profile pictures you’d think the decision was going to impact India too Even better it appears the aam Facebook janta is an active supporter of LGBT rights in India As someone pointed out on Facebook it was strange to see so many people changing their photos because the truth was that the ruling has no impact on India Certainly a ‘trendy’ social media wave but one that would do nothing for the LGBT community in our country Others pointed out that even people who had previously cracked homophobic jokes were now just joining in on the trend (Source: Facebook) Another pointed out sarcastically that people changing their profile pics was showing great commitment to the cause They went on to add ‘Begaane ki shaadi main Abdullah diwaana’ an old idiom which means “why go senselessly mad in someone else’s joyous occasion” Trendy or not it was surprising to see some of the people change their Facebook Profile Photos with rainbow colours For starters they were not the people who I thought even cared about the LGBT community let alone would rejoice at a judgement like this Not all of these people were outraged when Section 377 had been upheld The question in my head was ‘Why care now’ Ironically some friends who are gay have not changed their photos Of course some have and that’s perfectly understandable With a cause like this it’s easy to jump on the bandwagon and think that we’ve done our share by changing our Facebook profile photo But in a country where being gay means you can still go to jail for a life term ‘picture changing’ is a rather shallow way to show support In India being gay is hardly something you can announce with pride In 2011?with 49 patients affected by the disease and no deaths.

visible since the 1980s but Modi’s win emboldens the Hindu moral brigade with its vision of a muscular and Hinduised India Related News By:Ravinder Kaur Narendra Modi’s historic win created high expectations among a large section of the Indian population A variety of people were persuaded to vote for him on various grounds Many had become disgusted with the trail of scams left behind by UPA 2 others were disappointed with the lack of credible leadership in the Congress And the AAP’s sudden surge in Delhi proved to be shortlived Modi arrived as prime minister after a whirlwind campaign promising “development for all” Some who voted for him set aside their apprehensions of a hidden Hindutva agenda hoping that the development plank would remain centrestage Others pointed to the fact that Modi had broken with many RSS ideologues Yet worries persist over his style of going solo brooking no interference on an agenda fashioned by himself Such a style could go either way It could lead to distance from rightwing ideologues the “loony fringe” or it could foster a dictatorial style of operation where one man’s vision of what the new order should be like prevails all the time That is always a dangerous road to tread In his speeches Modi has pushed agendas that would warm the cockles of many liberal hearts Focus on the girl child toilets sanitation skills a cleaner Ganga good relations with neighbours — who could object to these laudable goals The average Indian continues to vote Modi hoping that he will succeeds in these tasks Despite the hope a sense of worry persists While not making a single misstep on social and secular issues Modi has maintained a stoic silence on the dangerous pronouncements and actions of BJP ideologues whether it is Yogi Adityanath or the valorisation of BJP politicians allegedly involved in the Muzaffarnagar riots or the pronouncements on “love jihad” How does one read his silence Is Modi as prime minister not in a position to pronounce on the misdemeanours of people from his party Does his silence not reflect his acquiescence Setting aside the inflammatory pronouncements let us look at some troubling trends in everyday life It cannot be denied that the north saw a polarisation of Hindus and Muslims during the Lok Sabha elections National elections do polarise But now Muslims have grown more fearful creating conditions for a party like the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) to craft a Muslim votebank that would be led by Muslims Meanwhile new constituencies that have come to comprise the “Hindu vote” are recently prosperous Dalits and OBCs Prosperity has led to greater desire for social acceptance and such groups have sought this acceptance within the Hindu fold Newly Hinduised members of tribal communities represent a related phenomenon As relative economic prosperity grows greater participation in religious rituals and pilgrimages by the middle classes projects a more visible Hindu majoritarian identity As more Indians begin to eat non-vegetarian food hygiene as well as objections to meat sharing kitchens and canteens with vegetarian food are used as excuses to eliminate it from many public institutions Once again the cow has become a flashpoint for communal conflict And other faiths are marginalised by restrictions on their functions imposed on the pretext of maintaining law and order The middle classes have always been known to be socially and politically conservative As the Indian middle classes grow in size and prosperity the desire to secure their newfound status results in insecurities that translate into greater social conservatism Hence the wave of honour killings accusations of “love jihad” the increasing communalisation of love marriages and of democracy itself These trends are attended by a jingoistic nationalism This tendency has been visible since the 1980s but Modi’s win emboldens the Hindu moral brigade with its vision of a muscular and Hinduised India The increasing use of a very Sanskritised Hindi in public discourse and the increasing visibility of Hindu religious functions and symbols is likely to create a hegemonic discourse that will quietly refashion a diverse country into a bigoted Hindu nation The Mars mission has become a modern trope for strong-arm nationalism It is probably this brand of nationalism that prompted protests against Haider which showed the Indian army in a poor light The broadcast of Mohan Bhagwat’s speech on Doordarshan may be a sign of the times to come We seem to be engulfed in an infantilising

He then pointed out the fun and games everybody had with this But little did the Governor know that the fact that the Task Force was not superseded by the Lakdawala Committee will haunt himby that I mean Governor RBI and thereby hangs a tale Therefore we are not talking of the past in the 80s but a page which is still therequite like the grin of the cat in Alice in Wonderland But as Wodehouse would sayfirst things first What is called The Lakdawala Committee was not approved by Prof DTLakdawala He was in fact quite peeved at the draft I know itbecause I was the Chairman of the Task ForceGovernor Subbarao talked of and by 1986 was quite convinced it had outlived its usefulness and as Member Planning Commission set up the Lakdawala Committee in fact to redefine the poverty line the Task Force had developed The members were only concerned about some statistical adjustments which gave results Lakdawala who had a lot of common sense would not accept and wanted mea research colleague at that timeto go and contradict and explain what the Committee should do I was not biting since I had been dropped by the successor Planning Commission from the Lakdawala Committeeafter Rajiv Gandhimy boss lost the election and I resigned from the Planning Commission But before the matter could be sorted out Prof Lakdawala passed away and the Report which carries his name doesnt have his signature How does all this affect the present There is a common thread and that was Prof Suresh Tendulkar He was a member of the Alagh Task Force and the Lakdawala Committee and thenlogically the Chairman of the Tendulkar Committee When the Tendulkar Committee was set up I was happy At last the Alagh Task Force which had served like the Hindustan Ambassador — a yeomans role for decades would be changedan outcome I had been advocating in print since 1985 and which I wrote again after the Tendulkar Committee was set up But now Suresh would not bite He finally kept the Alagh urban poverty line as the National poverty line and that is why you have the strange result that if you compare the old Official Poverty Line figures with the new ones from the Tendulkar Committeethe urban poverty proportions are the samebut the rural proportions go up I kidded him the last time I met him saying that he did not junk the old poverty line because he was a member of its parent group Those numbers are the control totals for the NREGA and are guidelines for the Food Security calculations even by the NAC In a professional piece I argued with a bit of algebra that the Alagh Task Force went from calories to poverty and the Tendulkar Committee went from a poverty line to caloriesbut economic policy is not just an exercise in causal chain logic Governor Subbarao will bear the consequences since he will have to steer economic policy particularly interest rates and so on arising as a consequence from all this This page from history will it seems only be facing himparticularly since the Planning Commission which ruled the poverty roost with an iron hand for over thirty years seems to have hung up its gloves and the others dont seem to care For all the latest Opinion News download

high-level football” Mourinho said of Rooney 31 “But he has the experience and character so he has to “Now we need absolutely everyone” United will be playing a game every three or four days through

center back with Marcos Rojo also getting injured on Saturday to likely join fellow defenders Phil Jones and Chris Smalling on the sidelines Mourinho’s only fit center back is Eric Bailly although Daley Blind _ usually a left back _ can move inside and 19-year-old Axel Tuanzebe could also be promoted to the first team “We’re in trouble We’re in trouble” Mourinho said “In this moment Eric Bailly

from across the country come together to share simple innovative approaches they practise to redefine learning SHIKHA SHARMA profiles a few of these micro-innovators Vivek Chauhan Principal Government Primary School Jaswala Rajasthan Every time an official would visit the government primary school in Jaswala Rajasthan its principal Vivek Chauhan remembers feeling embarrassed when students were quizzed on their vocabulary “Woh cat ko kutta bolte the mango ko more; dedh baje good morning kehte the aur nashte ko lunch (For them cat was a dog and mango a peacock; at 130 pm they would wish others good morning and refer to breakfast as lunch)” Chauhan recalls Things however hit a low when a local newspaper reported ‘the funny English’ the children spoke “I knew I had to do something but didn’t know what” he says When all else failed Chauhan devised a technique of his own using the ubiquitous attendance register “Instead of calling out a student by his name I’d address him using a fruit’s name in English The student would answer the roll call by responding with the Hindi word for the fruit” he says To begin with students found it funny but soon the change was visible Students not only responded to names like orange and papaya they reciprocated with the correct Hindi equivalents too Encouraged Chauhan extended the technique to other things — names of vegetables birds animals countries and their capitals scientists and their discoveries books and their authors etc “I devoted five minutes to the exercise everyday The children have learnt approximately 400 new English words in the last one year” he says Chauhan is one of 55 micro-innovators — teachers from the country’s many government and budget schools who may not have the desired resources or capital at their disposal but who are constantly pushing the boundaries when it comes to improving learning outcomes through sheer creativity enterprise and innovations At India’s first teacher changemakers summit organised by STIR (Schools and Teachers Innovating for Results) Education they came together to share simple innovative approaches they practise in their own schools revealing how small novel methods have redefined learning in the environment of their own little schools TURNING STUDENTS INTO ‘AUTHORS’ Banraj Singh Shekhawat (Class 3 teacher) Satya Bharti Government Primary School Dhani Pipliyan Amer Rajasthan A librarian at the school Shekhawat was taking a walk when he chanced upon several children sitting under a village tree exchanging bedtime stories told by their grandparents “We had storybooks in our school but children rarely picked up these books because they found it difficult to read The books were in English Yet I wondered — which child doesn’t like stories” he says To encourage a love for stories he first started asking students to share village stories and folktales their elders told them and made them narrate these in the school assembly Later he encouraged them to pen down these stories and put them in the school library for others to read “So the school now has 200 new books of its own written by the students Anyone can pick up a book and read a story or better still be a writer and write their own” he says UNDERSTANDING PARENTS BETTER H K Sharma (Principal) Janta Modern Public School Vijay Park Delhi Sharma observed how some parents — especially those with little formal education — were not enthusiastic about educating their children He tried reaching out to the parents and talking to them to change their mindset but to no avail It was then that Sharma prepared a questionnaire for the students to understand their parents better “The questions were simple They pertained to who watched TV with them and for how long whether they liked Saturdays better or Sundays did anyone in the family drink smoke or gamble profession of their parents etc” he says He collated and analysed the data and then met the parents “The idea was to make them realise that their behaviour impacts their children and suggesting changes the parents can make The basic question is always the same: How do they want their child to be in the next few years “Then depending on individual cases I recommend things parents can do to help the child become that person” he says Sharma has been undertaking the exercise for the last 15 years twice a year for a week ADDRESSING MALNUTRITION Poonam Katyal (Class 9 & 10 science teacher) Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya Zeenat Mahal Jaffrabad In a class of 74 students Poonam observed that there were a few girls from nearby slums who were always ‘sluggish’ Studying them closely she first identified students who looked weak or fell ill regularly Then she started collecting background information about these students — such as number of family members and average monthly income of the family along with individual students’ daily food habits Correlating all the data and with some help from the internet she then met the children at their homes suggesting ways to parents to increase nutrition in their diets “Since the girls belong to poor backgrounds from nearby slums and JJ colonies their excuse is that they cannot afford proper nutrition My single advice to them is that you can be poor but still get proper nutrition by sticking to seasonal produce I’m not going to say that the girls have suddenly started topping classes but yes there is a clear boost in their performance with respect to both academics and well-being” she says WINNING GIRL STUDENTS’ CONFIDENCE Mamta (Class 8 teacher) Government Girls Middle School Nand Nagri Delhi It all started with Mamta noticing that a few girls paid very little attention to anything she taught in class Upon closer investigation she discovered that the girls were facing issues like domestic violence at home and eve-teasing while coming to school In order to help the girls Mamta started a little practice “I asked them to share any problems they faced by writing to me anonymously on a piece of paper and putting it in this box I keep in the classroom” she says “Next day without disclosing the name of the child I read out these problems and advise the girls on what they can do about it It may be a small thing but it has led to better trust between me and my students” she says CATCH MY MISTAKES Shaheen Saifi (Class 3 teacher) Madarsa-E-Jadeed Seelampur “My students just hated Maths Every time I started giving them lessons in Maths I would just lose their attention” she recalls That was till she deliberately started making mistakes while solving problems on the board “I’d make a mistake and all of them would just jump up from their seats to correct me” she says “So this is what I started doing As soon as I entered class I would inform the children in advance about the number of mistakes I planned to make and asked them to spot it Maths unhe pasand ho na ho meri galtiyan nikalna unhe bahat pasand aata hai (Whether they like Maths or not they love spotting the errors I make)” she jokes “I now have all their attention and what’s more they are more focused on problem-solving since they are closely observing the lesson I am teaching” she says LEARNING ALPHABETS WITH CUTOUTS Lata Koranga (Class I teacher) Aryan Public School Seelampur Koranga noticed that even though her students could identify alphabets through pictures (C for cat D for dog) they clearly had trouble identifying alphabets on their own In order to familiarise them with letters she made cutouts of all English alphabets and pasted them on the classroom door “I would tell them in the morning what the alphabet was called Then I would stand at the door and let the child enter the classroom after he pronounced the letter correctly Every time a child walks in and out of the classroom he is supposed to pronounce the alphabet Looking at the same alphabet through the day the child finally learns” she says She replicates the practice with Hindi alphabets numbers etc “Usi ki chutti hoti hai jo sahi letter batata hai So in a way students are forced to learn” she says GRAMMAR IN SONGS Jyoti Bhardwaj (Class 9 teacher) Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya Zeenat Mahal Jaffrabad WhilE teaching Bhardwaj noticed that students in her class were not able to grasp the rules of Hindi grammar properly and often got confused So in order to help students understand and remember the rules she started creating poems to teach children basic grammar lessons in nouns pronouns adjectives and sentence formation “For example for noun the poem goes like this — Vyaktee vastu ya ho sthaan main deti sabko ek naam jaati ho ya bhaav anjaan main deti sabko pehchaan Mere teen bhed hain paate vyakti jaati aur bhaav batate Naam dena hai mera kaam Mera khud ka hai sangya naam” “Students enjoy the lessons more when you teach them through poems Sure it requires some creativity from my side too but they remember the poems for a long time this way” she says SELF-HELP IS THE BEST HELP Satwant Singh Dhillon (Principal) Rose Public Senior Secondary School Nayagaon Punjab Strongly against the practice of students going for tuitions Dhillon wanted to improve the learning of students who hail from financially unstable and illiterate backgrounds So he devised a method of his own For Classes 8 and 12 for all subjects after finishing a couple of chapters he asks every student from the class to prepare a small question paper for the entire class with three-five questions “So with 30 students in the class each student gets to solve 29 different question papers for each chapter” he says Then the student who sets an individual question paper is asked to mark the papers Length and time allotted for solving a paper varies as the year progresses Satwant has been practising this method for the last 15 years with the result that his students don’t take extra tuitions BUNDLING WOOD TO TEACH MATH Laxman Ram (Class I teacher) Government Upper Primary School Bagundu village Rajasthan Ram noticed that even though students at his school knew how to count they did not have any concept of numbers “Woh ungliyan dikha ke nahi bata pate the ki do aur chaar kya hai” he recalls Till he started using wooden sticks and bundles to simplify basic mathematical concepts like addition subtraction multiplication and division “In early stages the concepts are important Through this playful exercise I help students understand the fundamentals” he says LEARNING NEW WORDS Anita (Class 2 teacher) Satya Bharti Government Upper Primary School Haryana Anita was finding it difficult to get her students learn new words Since most of their parents were not educated she knew that the only place they could learn new words was at school To make them learn new words she designed a process where she asks students to collect English words they commonly use in their daily lives The process was named as ‘pitara’ where the students created chits of words with their meanings “I ask students to collect new words everyday present it to the class with the correct spelling and meaning and then the word goes into the pitara At the end of the week all the words are taken out of the pitara and students share new words they learnt during the week” she says For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Vinod Kumar |
