morning and birdwatcher Ronit Datta was expecting an ordinary boat ride He was at Thane Creek trying to spot some common shelducks a pretty white bird with a black head After the group he was travelling with had seen their fill of the ducks they started to turn the boat around On his way back however Datta spotted something a little out of the ordinary Standing erect on a mudslab was smallish bird with a long bill greenish at the base with a white lower back and yellow-green legs Watch What Else Is Making News: Datta immediately realised it was a type of dowitcher and started telling people excitedly what he’d seen No one quite knew what he was talking about never having heard of this rather rare bird except for the photographers Satyajeet Shinde and Sivaramakrishnan Sivasubramanian They quickly snapped shots of the solitary bird Once the boat reached the shore the trio looked through a field guide and later sent their photos to a few bird experts The verdict: the bird was a Long-billed Dowitcher This would be the first record of its sighting in Maharashtra The Long-billed Dowitcher is a vagrant bird that belongs to the Scolopaidae family Its genus name Limnodromus comes from the ancient Greek word limne meaning marsh and dromos which means racer They nest on the ground usually near water bodies Thane Creek was probably an ideal habitat for it according to Omkar Dilip Adhikari an avid birdwatcher who leads Thane Creek birdtrails It forages in shallow water or wet mud for insects mollusks crustaceans and marine worms jabbing its head up and down like a sewing machine From time to time it enjoys some plant material too “This Dowitcher species is a migrant from US though its breeding area is in the far north of North America and in eastern Siberia” says Datta “It winters in areas as south as Central America That means that this particular Long-billed Dowitcher of Thane Creek was a vagrant or a bird that has strayed far outside its expected breeding migrating or wintering range” Bird vagrancy is a relatively new area of research Some birds become vagrants because they have been blown off-course Others simply have a faulty navigation system and become confused about the direction they are supposed to travel in It seems that this Long-billed Dowitcher belongs to the latter category; it is not unusual to find this sort of behavior in passerines such as the sparrow or shore birds like the dowitcher But whenever a bird wings its way into new territory it’s sure to excite hordes of birdwatchers This weekend the boats on Bilipadhikari’s birding trails at Thane Creek are bound to be packed with enthusiasts; they will be hoping to spot some more disoriented dowichers sitting calmly on mudflats ignorant of the spectacle

Shakarpur where she allegedly worked as a domestic help Top News A Child Welfare Committee (CWC) cannot impose payment of compensation or arrears to rescued minor domestic helps without hearing the accused employer a sessions court has said adding that such a thing violates the principle of “natural justice” The special court rebuked the CWC which had ordered the accused employer to pay Rs 269 lakh to his domestic help without issuing him a showcause notice The court also relied on the observation of an earlier judge — made while granting anticipatory bail to the accused — who had said that the girl had not levelled any allegations of cruelty against her employer and had on the contrary stated that she was “happy in his house” The case dates back to 2015 when a 15-year-old girl was rescued by DBS Childline from the house of the accused in east Delhi’s Shakarpur where she allegedly worked as a domestic help It was alleged that the girl had been working there for three years and that she did not receive “any amount” for her work The CWC had relied on two High Court judgments and based on the calculation under Minimum Wages Act ordered the accused to pay an amount of Rs 269 lakh Additional Sessions Judge Ashwini Kumar Sarpal while hearing the appeal on the payment of arrears said the CWC before passing the impugned order neither made any “inquiry” from the accused nor issued any “notice” to him Instead it merely “relied” on the girl’s statement CWCs have been designated by law as the final district-level authorities for the care protection treatment development and rehabilitation of children in need of care and protection A child rescued by an NGO or police is presented before the CWC which decides on their immediate future like foster homes compensation reunion etc After this appeal the CWC filed a written submission to the court to “justify” its order stating that it is a quasi judicial body and is working in the “best interest” of the children The CWC stated that it issued the order after taking “support” from the High Court order titled ‘Bachpan Bachao vs Union of India’ and the L-G’s Delhi Private Placement Agencies (Regulation) Order 2014 regarding prevention of exploitation of domestic workers The judge said that even for the sake of argument if it is held that CWC has powers to impose the compensation by virtue of two orders it is required to “at least” follow the principles of “natural justice” “No adverse order can be passed by anyone especially the government or statutory agency unless the notice of the showcause is issued to the opposite party and he is given right of hearing and to defend such showcause… I have gone through the above mentioned High Court order and notification issued by the L-G and found nowhere that the CWC has a power to pass order without even hearing the opposite party or to pass an order by ignoring the principles of natural justice” the judge said The sessions court however said the CWC is at liberty to re-decide the issue of payment of compensation to the rescued girl “But only after issuing showcause notice to the accused after giving him an opportunity for filing reply and after giving him at least one opportunity of personal hearing” the court said For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Khaled Ahmed | Published: July 2 2016 12:39 am Many nations have done it in the past through “pogroms” and concentration camps but in the 21st century it is the Muslim state that is particularly afflicted by it at times under law but also with impunity Top News Nation states were sought to be superceded through the EU ASEAN EAC (Africa) and SAARC partly because they tended to designate external enemies and go to war with them in order to attain internal cohesion But there was another fatal defect equally in evidence: Once internally united they embarked upon an even more lethal process exclusion that is cleansing themselves of unwanted communities to make themselves more “pure” It so happened in Pakistan on June 15 2016 that in a discussion called Ishq-e-Ramadan (Passion for Fasting) a well-known model Hamza Ali Abbasi acting as TV host on Aaj News expressed sympathy for the constitutionally apostatised community of Pakistani Ahmadis He was talking to a popular religious scholar Maulana Kaukab Noorani Okarvi Five million Ahmadis have been declared non-Muslim by the 1974 second amendment of the constitution barring them from observing any Islamic ritual including fasting while all Muslims must proclaim their identity by condemning the community in official documents Abbasi had definitely overstepped the TV bar on expressing heretical views In the eyes of Pakistani Muslims he had no business flouting the constitution and declaring that injustice had been done to Ahmadis through exclusion from the faith without giving them a protected identity as a minority The cleric in the talk-show lost no time in condemning him not so much out of personal outrage as from an instinct of self-preservation Okarvi roared: “The honour of this nation is very much alive… If law (against Ahmadis) doesn’t take action Muslims are ready to take action It is law in the Pakistan armed forces that anyone who commits treason be shot dead at that very spot If this is rule for an army is my Prophet not worth even this much dignity This (anti-Ahmadi law) is a part of Pakistan’s constitution How dare you speak about this issue Our honour does not allow us to tolerate this crime We are very peaceful people but if someone dares say such things about the finality of prophethood then remember that we are all soldiers in the army of Islam And we have no hesitation in this matter Giving our life in this cause is the biggest honour for us Anyone who remains silent on this issue is a criminal and is complicit…” (Five days later on June 20 2016 an Ahmadi doctor Chaudhry Khaliq Ahmad was shot dead in Karachi The 49-year old homeopathic practitioner was slain while tending to his patients) This is the language of “exclusion” and there is a pledge of violence in it that the Ahmadi community has faced since the establishment of Pakistan and legally since 1974 The TV host stood targeted Predictably the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) received thousands of messages from the fasting population blasting Abbasi and the channel for having blasphemed PEMRA hastily banned Abbasi from appearing on TV The process of “expelling the trash” goes on among many nations It is visible as is intolerance in India these days but without the sanction of law Many nations have done it in the past through “pogroms” and concentration camps but in the 21st century it is the Muslim state that is particularly afflicted by it at times under law but also with impunity We know that Egypt hates its Christian Copts and seeks to achieve purity of national identity through their extermination But the attitude of the Iranian state towards the Bahai community is similar to what Pakistan does to Ahmadis who are often said to have been created and subsequently protected by the British Raj In a recent incident this was demonstrated when Faezeh Hashemi daughter of a former twice-president Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani tried to fraternise with Faribeh Kamalbandi a Bahai leader serving life in prison Rafsanjani tried to avert the wrath of the state by describing the Bahai faith as “a deviant sect created by colonialists” which “we disavow and have always done” Rafsanjani as president had fallen foul of the real power the spiritual leader of Iran because of his moderation which is a kind of swearword among Muslims His children son Mehdi Hashemi and daughter Faezeh made it tougher for him by being thrown in jail for their outspokenness Faezeh who last month offended again with Kamalbandi has caused at least one grand ayatollah and one ayatollah to lose their cool Ironically the Shia who demonise the Bahai in Iran are seeing fellow Shia being cut down by al Qaeda and the Islamic State in the Arab states across the Gulf without realising that they too had become “trash” In Pakistan whose founder was a Shia his community is facing “genocide” Note the irony in a headline carried by The Times of Israel on June 20 2016: “Pakistani Shiite leaders say sectarian attacks are genocide” Shia leader of Majlis Wehdat-e-Muslimeen Pakistan Allama Raja Nasir Abbas Jafri is continuing to use the word to describe the ongoing target-killing of his community in Pakistan The

Stepping up the offensive Rahul Gandhi on Thursday hit out at BJP’s ideological mentor RSS saying its belief was "murdering" individuality and that thought process is now running the country in which only one man knows everything from farmers to clothes In a brief but sharp speech at the national convention of NSUI the Congress Vice President also took a dig at the Prime Minister saying after his predecessor Manmohan Singh criticised the health of economy in the morning on Wednesday Narendra Modi took "pathshaala" (lessons) from him in the evening Rahul Gandhi PTI He took a jibe at Modi over his meeting with Manmohan Singhon Wednesdayafter the former Prime Minister had attacked the NDA government "Manmohan Singh said economy is going down After that the Prime Minister took classes (paathshaala) from Manmohan Singh for one hour He tried to understand how economy is run as he is not being able to understand it Maybe Manmohan Singh made him understand it I will ask him" he said Gandhi who had to wait at the dais for some time as the enthusiastic supporters cheered him said that it took him 10 years to understand that this "disorder" is in the DNA and strength of Congress family and contrasted it with "order and discipline" at RSS shakhas which kills individual thinking "You see the shakhas of RSS There is a straight queue in shakhas If any one makes a noise there he will be hit with a baton Have you talked to any RSS and BJP leader Discipline is just an excuse for them to murder individuality And this is the thought process which is running the country" Rahul said "One person knows everything Whether it is about farmers’ issues or education or even clothes only one person knows everything We say let everyone come sit together and speak on issues A solution will emerge They (RSS and BJP) say you come and sit here silently. Only one person will speak" he said Gandhi who has launched a series of attacks on the Modi government ever since his return last month after nearly a two month break also alleged that the government was trying to stifle the "internal dialogue" of the country "RSS does not allow debate or dialogue Discipline is used as an excuse to murder individuality and an excuse to silence lakhs of people They raise their arms like they did in Germany I won’t even do that" he said Noting that the people of the country have a mind of their own he said "We are not alone. Those belonging to the shakhas do not understand this The entire country is like this Every person has knowledge and knows what is good for him All persons of all religion caste know it "There are internal dialogues inside Congress party On that side (BJP) they have stopped internal dialogue They are trying to stop the internal dialogue of the entire country" Asking the party’s student wing cadres to fight RSS in educational institutions wherever RSS is imposing its ideology Gandhi said "Wherever RSS tries to impose its thought process you stand and stop them Wherever they want to bring the order of shakha take the Congress party’s disorder there" Suggesting that BJP functions the same way as RSS Gandhi said "If you have talked to any BJP leader they have the same opinion The entire world runs like this There is nothing else It has been running for the last thousand years like this and will remain so" Attacking the Prime Minister on his promises he said Modi asserted that he wanted to help the poor but is yet to visit the house of any farmer or poor even as he has toured a number of countries "He has completed the tour of France US Japan and even went as far as Mongolia and China but did not visit the house of a farmer or a labourer He had said he would bring back black money in 100 days Now they are celebrating one year of government 100 days are over long time back but black money has not returned" he said Recalling that Modi had said that education was empowerment the Congress Vice President rued that the NDA government on the contrary "slashed" the budget Alleging interference of RSS in education in the backdrop of the controversy over appointments in some key institutions he said "RSS has its total influence (poora haath) on the education ministry "Earlier eminent scientists used to give their suggestions to IITs and IIMs Now they don’t want to give their suggestions They want to withdraw Because a certain ideology is being imposed" Though Gandhi did not take any name the reference was obviously to nuclear scientist Anil Kakodakar who resigned as chairman of the board of governors of IT-Bombay in March following differences with the HRD ministry headed by Smriti Irani Asking youth leaders to fight this out he said that universities and educational institutions are the future of the country be it IITs IIMs or schools Taking potshots at the Prime Minister’s pet ‘Make in India’ scheme Gandhi said a "zero" will come out of it "Nothing is going to come out of ‘Make in India’ It’s a big zero It is going to yield a zero For ‘Make in India’ you have to give power to common man For ‘Make in India’ you have to give confidence to poor people They think that they will empower two or three big industrialists and ‘Make in India’ will happen "It will not happen See after five years but why five years Just see the one year of their government Has anybody got employment" he asked Hailing NSUI cadres for winning elections in states in which the Congress is in Opposition he said that there is a "big opportunity" for them in Congress party now as the NDA government is committing one mistake after another "Now is the time of opposition You may or may not agree with me but I see it happening very easily Our government is committing one mistake after another be it about the farmers ‘Make in India’ or his foreign visits" he said Gandhi repeatedly attacked the RSS saying that the most "hilarious" thing about those who come out of shakha is that they do not have to answer "They just come there in a queue and told not to argue" he said contrasting it with the work culture in Congress "Whenever we hold any meeting in Congress party different voices come out.I earlier thought why is there not an order in this party It took me 10 years to understand it We cannot bring order because our organisation wants to listen to everybody. this is in its DNA "Outside people think there is confusion inside They think there should be discipline in these kind of meetings But in reality this is the strength of the party After 10 years slowly I have come to understand this" Gandhi said as he referred to the practice of finding solution to the complexity in the country and the different opinions by taking all voices along Modi was under attack in the meeting from other Congress leaders including Youth Congress chief Amarinder Singh Raja Brar and NSUI chief Roji John as well at the two-day convention of the NSUI called Drishtikon Gandhi also launched a mobile application of NSUI on the occasion There was also a minor row when one NSUI worker talked about "media being paid" to cover news events However the organisers were quick to apologise as media persons strongly objected to it PTI” especially evident in the younger generation.
