Champion Infratech Signs an Exclusive Agreement with Crystal Lagoons in India

Business Wire India Champion Infratech, a Bengaluru-based real estate player and a division of Champions Group, cares about environmentally responsible building practices and developing quality lifestyles for valued customers. The company announced the signing of an exclusivity agreement withCrystal Lagoonsin India to develop freshwater lagoons for public and private use throughout the country. As stated by Subhakar Rao Surapaneni, Chairman and Chief Coach of ChampionInfratech and Champions Group, Champion Infratech has always distinguished itself by its innovative and client-centric approach. It is our goal to bring 100 lagoons to India within the next 20 years (excluding Gujarat and Rajasthan) through various collaborations. Through this exclusive agreement, we are able to ensure the quality and rollout of private and public lagoon developments across the country, further cementing our partnershipwith Crystal Lagoons. Our team is excited about the potential that Crystal Lagoons technology offers to create beach life in every city. This will revolutionize the concept of lifestyle amenities for residential and commercial properties. Through this partnership, Champion Infratech intends to establish a diversified real estate portfolio. This portfolio will include projects designed for Indians who aspire to live surrounded by natural, iconic, and sustainable amenities. With these projects, inhabitants of coastal and inland cities including New Delhi, Pune, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Goa, Chennai, and many more will have the opportunity to experience a tropical paradise on their doorstep. These projects will leverage the sustainable aspect of Crystal Lagoons technology. It works with any type of water and uses four times less water than a golf course. It also consumes only half that of a park of the same size. A significant number of projects will include space for hotels, amusement parks and multi-family areas, stores, restaurants, recreational and entertainment activities, wedding arenas, water sports, and commercial and leisure infrastructure around the crystalline waters. These idyllic beaches with lagoons of crystalline water will transform the real estate landscape into breathtaking destinations that can be enjoyed all year round. Lagoons can be constructed in any type of environment, including inland areas, urban areas, coastal areas, and second-row coastal properties of any shape and size. As a result, developers and landowners collaborating on this project can benefit from the transformation of their otherwise unviable projects into feasible ones with increased property values. With this technology, more than 1000 lagoon projects have been built in 50 countries around the globe and it has become a worldwide phenomenon. In addition, Champion Infratech sees potential demand for lagoons in various Indian cities with the rise in the aspirations of Indian citizens. Added to this Crystal Lagoons technology is sustainable and safe for the environment. It allows limited resources such as energy and water to be used. This is a substantial benefit for a country like India. Indian developers and landowners are already in talks with the company about bringing large man-made lagoons to cities and a few are in advanced stages, and an announcement will be made by early next year.

Bengaluru court vacates temporary stay on sale of book on Tipu Sultan

Bengaluru news Additional City Civil and Sessions judge J R Mendonca vacated an earlier temporary injunction issued by the court against the author of 'Tipu Nija Kanasugalu, its publisher and printer. Agencies PICXY.COM /LAKSHMI PRASAD A temporary stay on the sale of a new book on Tipu Sultan written by Rangayana director Addanda C Cariappa was vacated by a court in Bengaluru on Thursday, December 8. Additional City Civil and Sessions judge J R Mendonca vacated an earlier temporary injunction issued by the court against the author of 'Tipu Nija Kanasugalu, its publisher Ayodhya Publication and printer Rashtrotthana Mudranalaya. The earlier injunction, however, did not prevent the respondents from printing the book at their risk and storing the ones which are already printed. On Thursday, the court dismissed the suit against the book filed by former chairman of the District Wakf Board Committee and Bengaluru resident BS Rafiulla. The next hearing of the case will take place on January 23, 2023. The suit claimed that the book contains wrong information without any support or justification from history which hurt the feelings of the Muslim community. In November, Cariappa, who is a noted theatre personality, had filed a complaint with the police after getting threats to his life. Police had stated that Cariappa submitted a written complaint to the Jayalakshmipuram police station in Mysuru. Cariappa's literary work Tipu Nija Kanasugalu (Real Dreams of Tipu) and adaptation of the book into a play at Mysuru theatre repertory has stirred a controversy for its content which brands Tipu Sultan as a religious fanatic. The author had been threatened through a letter. You have reached the stage of being killed. You will die. Your god will also not be able to save you, the threatening letter read. Cariappa had sought for protection and legal action against the persons for issuing life threats. Cariyappa's book and the play have led to objections from historians following his claims that Tipu Sultan was not killed by the British, but by Vokkaliga chieftains Uri Gowda and Nanje Gowda.

Hyundai Tucson 2WD diesel ownership: Experience after 2 months & 1500km

BHPian KrishKallapur recently shared this with other enthusiasts. I am writing this update after 2 months of ownership and 1500 km. I bought a diesel 2WD Signature model, Amazon Grey. This post is going to be a bit long. Hope it will be useful to others. I must say in terms of space and comfort, it is really great. It is a driver's car and a passenger's car too. I did not have any anxious moments in terms of the car performance or ride. Some owners have expressed the inadequacy of headlights. I have felt that they are just good enough. I never felt that I missed something on road because of less light while driving. Noise and vibration level seems to have gone up a touch after 100 km. Which features I appreciate:Auto hold - this is very useful in stop-and-go traffic like in Bengaluru, love it!Steering - amazingly smooth, such a big car, so easy to handle360-degree view - very very useful again on narrow roads. It saved many scratches in difficult situations.Presence on road - I had multiple people asking me about the car and appreciating the looks (even owners of BMW cars!)Rear seat - my family and friends tell me it is like a club class in Imax!Mileage - More on it belowSound system - Very good and easy to operateVoice command - work well and is very usefulBuild feels solid - never felt it is a delicate dolly like other Hyundai carsInterior lights - many lights, very convenientRide quality - very good and adequate enoughEngine and power train - 2L DSL with AT is superb. I have never felt lag or inadequate powerSome cribs:Only front-row windows are one touch. All windows should have been.The sheet metal and paint job does not feel premium but not bad.The auto tailgate open feature has been more inconvenient than useful. It opens when not needed.The rain-sensing wiper has been a bit of hit and miss sometimes.Sunroof should have been fully opened.Bonet should have had hydraulic support.The silver styling on the pillars is a dirt and scratch magnet.Wireless charger does not charge fast enough and heats up a lot.No wireless Apple play or android auto.The breaks squeak a lot (they work well though).I have noticed when the cellular signal is unavailable (like in a basement), the main unit touch screen lagged a bit.Collision avoidance is very panicky (I agree with other users). They need to give an easy way to turn the auto braking off.The seats could be a bit softerOptions in the blue link app on my mobile are a bit hit and missNow the important one - MileageInitially, up to 600 km, it always showed under 6 km/l (Yes!). I was thinking to visit the service. My friend suggested waiting a while (for the opening up of the engine). After 600, everything suddenly changed. On a Sunday, a trip to Planetarium from Mysore Road in Bengaluru with stop-go traffic gave 16 km/l! On a trip on Mysore Road, I was able to manage 20 km/l driving a tad under 100 km/h. That's very good for a 2L turbo, I feel. Practically, I am seeing no difference between my VW Ameo DSL Auto and Tucson in terms of fuel consumption. Happy me I drive in Eco mode. I had multiple calls from Hyundai Motors and Trident Hyundai taking feedback on sales and ownership experience. That makes me feel Hyundai is keen on Tucson users. There was confusion about 1st service. I got a message to service it at 1000 or 2 months whichever is earlier. Then they clarified it was a wrong message. It is for 1 Year / 10K There is a Hyundai Mobility App and membership as well. The app does not work though, it didn't even register my car. Hope this review is useful. Will write one more at 5K.

Injured Shami Doubtful For Bangladesh Test Series: Report

New Delhi, Dec 8, Indian pacer Mohammed Shami, who is already out of the ongoing three-match ODI series due to injury, has not fully recovered from the right shoulder strain and is unlikely to be available for the Test series against Bangladesh. Shami has been in the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru and reports from there are not encouraging for him. According to a Cricbuzz report, the NCA staff will draw a roadmap for veteran bowler's recovery and rehab. At this stage, there is no clear information on his comeback. The Indian team is already struggling in the ODIs in Bangladesh and the absence of Shami will be a big blow for the visitors ahead of the Test series. The 32-year-old last played for India in the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia last month. He was initially part of the ODI squad for the Bangladesh series but had to be withdrawn and Umran Malik was named as his replacement. However, it has been learnt that there is no immediate plan to rush in a replacement for Tests as more than 30 players are in Bangladesh, including those part of the India A squad. The Indian team will be free to retain any player if it wants. The likes of Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj and Shardul Thakur are part of the squad alongside the spinners Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav. They will also be soon be joined by Saurabh Kumar, a left-arm spinner, who will come in place of an injured Ravindra Jadeja. As far as the ODI squad is concerned, no replacement is being named for the three players -- Kuldeep Sen, Deepak Chahar and Rohit Sharma -- who are not unavailable for the third and final ODI on December 10, due to different injuries. Siraj, Thakur and Umran are available for selection and the selection committee sources have said there is no immediate need for a replacement for a series that has already been lost, the report further said. Meanwhile, skipper Rohit has arrived in Mumbai for scans following the thumb injury he sustained during the second ODI and a decision on his participation in the Tests will be taken in the next 24 hours. If not for the first game, Rohit's availability for the second and final Test will also be explored. Shubman Gill, a specialist opener, is part of the Test squad and can fill in alongside KL Rahul. Meanwhile, skipper Rohit has arrived in Mumbai for scans following the thumb injury he sustained during the second ODI and a decision on his participation in the Tests will be taken in the next 24 hours.

Bengaluru: Fake marksheets of 18 universities sold on WhatsApp, four arrested

Fake marksheet Police said that they seized over 1000 fake marks cards, seals, and other related documents. TNM Staff Twitter The Central Crime Branch (CCB) on Tuesday, December 6, arrested a group in Bengaluru that sold fake marksheets from nearly 18 universities across India on WhatsApp and other social media sites. The police said that they were operating from three different locations in the city. The CCB seized the fake marksheets after conducting raids at the offices of an educational institute called Sri Venkateshwara Institute. CCB arrested four people viz. Shilpa, the institute's director; Sharada and Kishore, two employees; and Rajanna, the owner of a printing press. G Srinivas Reddy, the institute's founder, and chairman is absconding. The accused allegedly sold marksheets of pre-university, BA, B Com, BSc, BBA, engineering, and MBA from 18 different universities across the country. They charged between Rs. 50,000 and Rs. 1,00,00 from applicants and also sold PhD credentials for between Rs. 10 lakh and Rs. 20 lakh. The police also discovered that certain students were required to take exams and that some of them received the question and answer sheets at their doorstep. Police said that they seized over 1000 fake marks cards, seals, and other related documents. According to a report in Deccan Herald (DH), a resident of Electronic city filed a complaint with Cyber Crime police stating that an institute offered BCom marksheets for Rs 1 lakh on his visit to its Mahalakshmi layout office on November 12. The staff promised a certificate from a reputable university after a payment of Rs 1 lakh. The report further stated that the student paid Rs 40,000 and asked when he had to appear for the exam, to which the staff told him that someone else would write it on his behalf. On November 26, the institute sent him first and second-year marksheets on WhatsApp, and when asked about the final year marksheets, the staff demanded that he pay the remaining Rs 60,000. Suspecting foul play, the student approached the police and filed a complaint. According to Bengaluru city Police Commissioner C H Pratap Reddy, in a 12-hour operation, three police teams were able to seize the documents from Marathahalli, Kodigehalli, and Mahalakshmi Layout. The police said that Sri Venkateshwara Institute claimed to provide distance learning on their website. When applicants approached them, they were summoned to the office and informed that someone else would take their exams in exchange for a sizable payment. Many candidates engaged with the institute virtually instead of bothering to visit its office to confirm it. Once the money was paid, the accused allegedly sent the marksheets over WhatsApp and other platforms. The marksheets that were seized belonged to Dr CV Raman University in Bilaspur, the National Institute of Open Schooling in Andhra Pradesh, the Karnataka State Open University, William Carey University in Shillong, the North East Frontier Technical University in Arunachal Pradesh, the Calorx Teachers University in Gujarat, the Swami Vivekananda Global University in West Bengal, the Eastern Institute for Integrated Learning in Management in Sikkim, the EIILM University in Sikkim, VS Prasanna Bharati University in Haryana and IEC University in Himachal Pradesh.
