Kerala To ban or not to ban... Kerala’s ideological warfare Lottery profits for a social cause
Lottery profits for a social cause
FIVE KARUNYA homes with 1500 beds and dialysis centres at 2 hospitals in every district are going to set up with funds generated from the sales of Karunya lottery tickets by the state finance department of Kerala. These homes will be used to accommodate patients who come for treatment from other districts or states. The lottery has already found a place in the heart of Keralites with advertisements featuring stars like Prithviraj and Manoj K Jayan. Overall Rs 68.33 cr is going to be used for the project by the state government.

The super noisy Kochi crowd

This is what England cricket team’s star batsman Kevin Pietersen had to say on twitter after the match: “for the record – last night was the best atmosphere I have ever played in front of.. Deafening! Thanks, Kochi. Love - KP”

The Kochi stadium was packed with 60,000 plus cricket fans at the one day match.
It was tough job for the umpires as well as commentators. Harsha Bhogle tweeted this during the match: “this is going to be a really tough game to umpire. Impossible to hear a snick. Even a commentator won’t know what level to speak at.”

The crowd was on a high because a match was being held after a long time.

Calicut University takes-it-easy

IT SEEMS the Calicut University believes in re - testing. In the last 2 years the university has held 12 exams using the previous year’s papers. The 3rd semester students of MCom were treated to a ‘cut, copy, paste’ job of last year’s financial management paper. Whether that was a lottery or not is difficult to say as many students tend to leave out questions set for the immediately preceding exam! As per the regulation, the question paper should be prepared by the board of chairman along with two or three members from other states. But looks like none of these is being followed. With such blunders the university is fast losing its credibility.
