Aircel-Maxis deal: Fresh summons to four accused
A court here on Monday issued fresh summons to four accused including Malaysian businessman T.A Ananda Krishnan in the Aircel-Maxis deal case.
 
Central Bureau of Investigation Special Judge O.P. Saini issued fresh summons to Krishnan, Augustus Ralph Marshall and two accused firms, Maxis Communications Berhad of Malaysia and Astro All Asia Networks, for December 7.
 
The order came after the probe agency informed it that Malaysian authorities were not cooperating in the service of summons against the accused in the case.
 
The CBI said the Indian High Commission and ministry of home affairs have tried thrice to get the summons served to Krishnan, Marshall and accused firms but did not get any positive response from them and requested the court to issue fresh summons to the accused.
 
Former communications minister Dayanidhi Maran, his brother Kalanithi Maran and authorised representative of accused firm Chennai-based Sun Direct TV were present in the court during the hearing.
 
The court also listed the bail application of Maran brothers and their application challenging the jurisdiction of the special 2G court to try the Aircel-Maxis deal case in which they have been summoned as accused along with others for the same date.
 
The agency has alleged that Dayanidhi Maran used his influence to help Krishnan buy Aircel by coercing its owner Sivasankaran to part with his stake.
 
It was alleged by Sivasankaran that Dayanidhi Maran favoured the Maxis Group in the takeover of his company. In return, he further alleged, the company made investments through Astro Network in a company stated to be owned by the Maran family.

"Ban all those relatives who want you married when you're single and divorced when you're married. #NextBanIdea," @thakurain tweeted.
 
"Govt should make a committee which decides what to ban next and it should ban itself. Problem solved. #NextBanIdea," @bakwasradio said.
 
"Aunties that say "kitna badaa ho gaya hai!" to you. #NextBanIdea," @pranavsapra tweeted.

Banning a few porn site, especially the revenge porn, child porn and extremely violent hardly makes it a blanket ban. So making out as if give has banned porn is ludicrous.

Ralph, VPNs are usually provided by employers and it is a violation of terms of employment to watch porn on that facility.

I know one can also subscribe to VPN services but many of them ban (ToS) such behaviour too. Isn't it?

I fully support the ban on such sites.

Do watch Why I stopped watching porn: Ran Gavrieli at TEDxJaffa 2013 ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRJ_QfP2m... )

Those who argue for not banning should answer this first: Why is Marijuana or hard drugs banned?

Why can't we buy sleeping pills freely?

Why are guns/weapons not allowed freely like in the USA?

We all know how "grown up mature" adults should be allowed freedom to choose but how they actually behave right?

Just drive on any Indian roads.

Or see how families are being ruined by alcohol...

or how girls/women are harassed

Rare technique saves woman with brain haemorrhage
A 43-year-old woman who fell unconscious after suffering a brain haemorrhage was successfully treated using a rare intervention technique at a hospital here, doctors said on Monday.
 
Meena Saini fell unconscious after getting a severe headache accompanied by vomiting. Her family members rushed her to a hospital and a brain CT scan revealed that she had a haemorrhage in the fluid space around the brain.
 
A magnetic resonance angiography revealed that one of the main blood vessels had become swollen and burst.
 
Saini was immediately referred to Medanta The Medicity here since there was the likelihood of another haemorrhage.
 
Lead surgeon Vipul Gupta found that a blood vessel in the brain had ballooned and was completely damaged.
 
"Saini was at high risk of repeat haemorrhage and immediate repair of the leaking blood vessel was needed to safe her life," Gupta said.
 
During treatment, doctors placed a microcatheter -- a very thin tube -- in Saini's brain and then the damaged blood vessel was occluded by using specialised coils.
 
Terming the procedure "coiling", Gupta, who is the head of the neurointervention unit at the hospital, said: "This small incision process ensures minimal injury to normal brain leading to better outcomes."
 
He said recent random trials conducted in Europe and North America showed that long-term clinical results were better with embolization than open surgery in aneurysm patients.
 
Once the surgery was performed, doctors checked the repair process by angiography after six weeks and observed that the healing process had repaired the blood vessel almost completely.
 
Saini made a slow but sure recovery from the effects of haemorrhage and is now living a normal life today, doctors said.

I am glad that this woman was treated appropriately for a subarachnoid hemorrhage caused by a cerebral aneurysm. However it should be noted that this technique is not rare. It is one of the options that has been used for many years along with surgical clipping of the aneurysm. I am sure many tertiary care hospitals in major Indian cities offer the same procedure to those who warrant it.
