The 14 th A.K. Nair Memorial Award was bestowed on Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. Managing Director E. Sreedharan at a function here on Thursday in recognition of the services he rendered to the nation.

The award instituted by the North Malabar Chamber of Commerce (NMCC) and the A.K. Nair Memorial Endowment Committee (AKNMEC) was presented by Leela Group of Hotels chairman and AKNMEC chief patron Capt. C.P. Krishnan Nair. The award was originally scheduled to be presented by Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit. The organisers of the function said that she cancelled the trip due to some pressing official business in the Capital. Her message was read out at the function.

In his acceptance speech, Mr. Sreedharan said that he was accepting the award on behalf of the team of competent technical personnel who made the Konkan Railway and the Delhi Metro a reality. Referring to P.V. Manesh, National Security Guard commando, who had been injured in the operation against terrorists during the 26/11 Mumbai attacks and who was present at the award presentation ceremony, Mr. Sreedharan said that the services he had rendered to the nation was insignificant compared to the services rendered by Mr. Manesh who had made personal sacrifices while serving the nation.

Mr. Sreedharan said that entrepreneurs should involve themselves for the betterment of the society. Organisations such as the NMCC should come forward as it was not practical for the government and civic bodies to do everything. The public had to move in to improve quality of life as the local administrations were not very effective.

Stressing the importance of a good public transport system, he said that such a system would help reduce the number of vehicles on the roads.

The function was presided over by the NMCC president B. Maheshcandra Baliga. District Collector Anand Singh was the chief guest. He said that the Kannur being a highly urbanised district and facing all necessary evils of urbanisation including traffic logjam, the Mass Rapid Transit System type of transport was the answer to the problems.

In his keynote address, Kannur University Vice-Chancellor P.K. Michael Tharakan said that the contributions of Mr. Sreedharan for the development of the Konkan Railway and Delhi Metro were inevitable for the development of entrepreneurs. The Konkan Railway had also played a historical role as it linked the Konkan and Malabar areas which in the past had been treated as a single coastal region. Capt. Nair in his address said that Kerala was still struggling to become a modern State because of the absence of transformational infrastructure.

AKNMEC chairman Vivek Nair, NMCC vice-president C. Jayachandran and secretary Vinod Narayanan were among those present at the function.

A tribute to Bappu, his comet, astrophysics


KANNUR: The Vainu Bappu gallery, set up in the Science Park here, was inaugurated by Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, former Home Minister and the Deputy leader of the Opposition in the Kerala Assembly on Saturday. The new gallery in the park is set up as part of the efforts to give a facelift to the institution, which is supported by the district panchayath.

While inaugurating the gallery, where various items related to India's space technology, including posters, charts and videos are on display, Kodiyeri said, such efforts would inspire the young generation students to pursue their future career in science and technology-related researches.

He also observed that though the universities are expected to be hubs of research programmes, sadly enough, many universities in Kerala lack the facilities, including proper libraries. He said even the condition of the Kannur University is no exception.

"Though Vainu Bappu has his roots in Thalassery, many of us here are not aware of this and this is a recognition to him. Hope this gallery will stand as a monument of honour for the legendary astronomer, and also inspire many young people here to enter the field of scientific and technological research," he added.

Born in 1927 in Andhra Pradesh, as the son of Manali Kukuzhi Bappu, a native of Thalassery who worked as a senior astronomer in the Nizamiah Observatory, Hyderabad, Vainu was passionate about astronomy since childhood.

So, after obtaining his Masters in physics from Madras University, Vainu joined the Harvard Universit.

Later he went on to become the president of the International Astronomical Union, and also played major role in establishing several astronomical institutions in India, including the Vainu Bappu Observatory named after him, at Kavalur in Tamil Nadu. A world-renowned astronomer, he was instrumental in discovering 'Bappu-Bok-Newkirk' comet along with his professor Bart Bok and colleague Gordon Newkirk at Harvard University. While doing his PhD in Harvard, he conducted a study in 1957, on the emission line and the absolute visual magnitude of the star, along with his colleague Olin C Wilson, which is considered a landmark in astrophysics and the observations of the study later came to be known as Wilson-Bappu effect. August 19, 1982.

Though the Science Park has many projects in the pipeline, lack of sufficient fund is the dampener, said Palliyara Sreedharan, the director of the park.

The family members of the wife of Veinu Bappu also attended the inaugural ceremony

INA to host sailing regatta and Navy Queen contest


The Indian Naval Academy (INA) will host the second edition of its International Sailing Regatta for trainees of naval academies of friendly nations and Navy Queen's contest this month.

The second edition of the Admiral's Cup Sailing Regatta will be held at the INA from December 9 to 12. The Indian Navy instituted the Admiral's Cup as a 'fleet race' in laser class of sail boats which are single crew Olympic class boats. Naval academies of friendly countries had been invited to participate in the event, a press release issued by the INA here on Sunday said. Twelve countries had already confirmed their participation. They included Brazil, Italy, Mauritius, and Sri Lanka, the release said.

The number of participating countries was expected to go up to 15 by the time of commencement of the event, it said.

The inaugural sailing regatta held in December last year was a big success with a total of 12 teams participating, which included teams from nine foreign countries.

Races at Ettikulam Bay

The races would be conducted at the Ettikulam Bay at the INA. A total of eight races were scheduled in the men and women categories to be run over three days. Two boats a country would comprise the team and they would compete for the prestigious Admiral's Cup trophy, which would be awarded to the best team based on their combined performance. In addition, individual medals would be awarded in the men and women categories.

The INA would host the Navy Queen contest in connection with Navy Week celebrations on December 10. The Navy Ball and Navy Queen contest had traditionally been the signature events of the Navy Week celebrations, the release said. Such events showcasing naval customs and traditions helped to attract talented young men and women to choose Navy as a career.

The Navy Queen Pageant is a national-level beauty pageant, which has been a launch pad for prospective contestants. Participants will be put through two rounds of screening and the grooming sessions will provide them an exposure on the Indian Navy as well as the role of the INA in the training of Naval and Coast Guard officers.

Preliminary screening

Preliminary screening will be held at the INA on December 7 and the final will be held during the Navy Ball on December 10. Interested participants can contact the INA by e-mail on [email protected] and more details can be obtained on dialing Ph: 9447788448, 9387066099, 04985 224144.

Kannur to witness daredevil display by Army's riders

Show to be held at Jawahar Stadium on Saturday

It was a sample display of breathtaking acrobatics that involved high degree of risks and perfect man-machine co-ordination as men made a spectacular performance of scintillating human formations on bikes.

The 37-member Motorcycle Rider Display Team of the Signals Corps, popularly known as the Daredevils, is here as part of the ‘Army Mela' scheduled here on December 10.

The stunning display of the feats of the team is one of the various events scheduled to be held at the Jawahar Stadium here on Saturday. Defence Minister A.K. Antony will be the chief guest at the function.

The team which is based in Jabalpur demonstrated its awesome acts on the machines at a rehearsal staged in the stadium on Wednesday in the presence of a select audience comprising Army personnel and media persons.

The team led by Captain Abhayjit Mehlawat began the performance with a show of motorcycles crisscrossing in high-speed formations that required precision to the split of a second. The show, named ‘Chain and Scissors Crossing' left the spectators stunned. It was followed by various individual and group stunts on the bikes such as handle bar ride, reverse salute, side balance, back vaulting, wheel barrow, solo ladder and the pyramid formation of the riders, among others.

After the show, Capt. Mehlawat told The Hindu that co-ordination, accuracy, physical fitness, concentration and high morale were the important factors required for the team members.

“The team practises three to four hours every day even when they move from one place to another for shows,” he said.

The team consists of volunteer dispatch riders who are not only proficient in their trade, namely dispatching messages, but are also trained to possess self-determination, mental alertness, courage, stamina and skills to ride motorcycles in tandem.

Ambujam C.P. Nambiar, who was a former member of the team and a native of the district, said he still kept in touch with the team members.

“The team of Daredevils is different from any other Army unit as each of its members maintains a strong affinity with the team even after retirement,” said Mr. Nambiar, who lost his big toe and second toe of one of his legs in an accident during a Chain Scissors Crossing show in Kolkata on December 13, 1986.

He is still remembered with affection Naib Subedar Hanuman Singh Arya, who was riding behind him in the formation before the accident occurred and who died instantly.

A key member of the team is Subedar Chaudhary, who is in charge of the upkeep of the machines.

He said his duty was to take care of the bikes.

Capt. Mehlawat said that a large number of youngsters wanted to join this elite team. They had to undergo probation for three months successfully before they could be inducted into the squad.

The team has a history of creating world records. On June 11, 2008, it created a world record by making the largest human pyramid of 251 men on 11 motorcycles and moving a distance of 200 metres.

Daredevils steal the show even before spectacle begins

KANNUR: Even as the preparations for the Army Mela, to be organized by Defence Security Corps (DSC) Centre on December 10, are in full swing, Indian Army's Daredevil motorcycle display team presented a breathtaking performance on Wednesday here at the Municipal Jawahar Stadium.

This is for the first time a 27-member team of the Corps of Signals of Indian Army is performing in Kannur. The Daredevils displayed a series of stunning performances, including a human pyramid on seven motorbikes, which underscored their motto of being swift and vigilant.

This was followed by a dog show in which the cadets of the Remount and Veterinary Corps (RVC) Centre and School, Meerut, made their dogs perform the acts of discipline. It also showed how dogs can be of great help in critical situations.

Another interesting item was the horse show by the Army Service Corps, Bangalore, which showed the skill of the Army personnel in using the horses in battle zones.

This was followed by the musical performance by the Army band. Defence minister A K Antony will inaugurate the Army Mela on December 10, where all these items and much more, including a fly past would be performed.

The fair will showcase the prowess of the Indian defence force and the items on display in this fair will include modern military weapons and equipment.

Archives exhibition at Sreekantapuram


A large collection of archive materials, including records, will be exhibited at Sreekantapuram here from December 12 to 17 as part of this year's State-level Archives Week celebration.

At a press conference here on Thursday, C.P. Abdul Majeed, archivist at the Kozhikode Regional Archives, said the State-level celebration at Sreekantapuram would be opened by Rural Development Minister K.C. Joseph. M.G.S. Narayanan, historian, would participate in the inaugural function.

The Archives Week was celebrated every year to create awareness of the importance of archives collection and conservation.

He said the exhibition of 300-odd historical documents and records would be the key event of the celebration.

Among the exhibits would include a letter written to Arakkal Beevi, the then head of the erstwhile royal Arakkal principality here, by the Ottoman emperor in Constantinople in 1779, which was the oldest historical document in the possession of the Kozhikode Regional Archives.

The records to be exhibited included settlement registers of the nine taluks of the erstwhile Malabar district of the Madras Presidency, records about the Pazhassi revolts, the freedom struggle, including the Civil Disobedience Movement, and Mathilakam records.

Conservation clinic

Mr. Majeed said a conservation clinic would be set up at the venue of the exhibition to give the public some tips about the ways to conserve archival materials.

As a precursor to the week-long event, quiz programmes on topics related to archives would be held in different parts of the Irikkur constituency from December 9 to 11. N. Shibu of Central Archives in Thiruvananthapuram and M.O. Madhavan, organising committee convener, were present.

State Archives Week from December 12 to 17
Focus on collection, conservation of material

Display of Army weaponry



An array of war machines from the weaponry of the Indian Army, including armoured tanks, artilleries, and individual protection suites on display drew a large number of people, including students, to Police Parade Ground here where an exhibition of modern military weapons and accessories began on Thursday as part of an Army ‘Mela' scheduled to be held here on December 10 which will be inaugurated by Defence Minister A.K. Antony at 2.30 p.m.

The exhibition was opened for the public on Thursday in connection with the dress rehearsal for the military pageantry planned on December 10. A few armoured tanks and personnel carriers showcased at the Police Parade Ground were the central attraction at the exhibition as officers explained to visitors major features of these weapons. Light field guns, automatic grenade launchers, medium machine guns, rocket launchers, AK 47 guns, INSAS rifles, carbine machine guns, and assault rifles were the other weapons displayed. Major General A.K. Pradhan, General-Officer Commanding Karnataka and Kerala Sub Area, will inaugurate the exhibition at 8.30 a.m. on December 10.

Curiosity was writ large on the faces of visitors, mainly students from different parts of the district and neighbouring areas as they moved from one slot to another at the venue showcasing various weapons and equipment. They listened to explanations from Army personnel on each of the items on display.

There was also a display of multi-span mobile bridge and Baily bridge. The equipment exhibited included laser range finder, individual protection equipment against nuclear and chemical attacks, various improvised explosive device models such as toy bombs and time bombs, and bomb disposal suits. A separate stall was set up for exhibiting the models of the BrahMos weapons system.

The exhibition also included various stalls set up by records offices of different regiments and corps as also by the Sailors' Bureau and the Air Force to address grievances of ex-servicemen and problems concerning their pension. A free medical camp would also be organised for the ex-servicemen.

The full dress rehearsal of the military pageant was held at the Jawahar Stadium here in the afternoon. A large number of people gathered at the stadium to watch the rehearsal of the pageant.
