Namasthe – Excellent and superb way of saying ” I Love You”-” I care you”


//Namasthe //
Namasthe – Excellent and superb way of saying ” I Love You”-” I care you”.
It is a vedic way of saying “Hello”. But the Sanskrit word and the gesture is laden with meanings and prayers .


Placing our hands in front of heart, just like in the picture stimulates the chakras.


The attitude of submission and love of ” Namasthe” create high positive energy vibrations …

The SUV may come with two engine options: a 1.6-litre, 16-valve petrol engine that produces 114 hp and a 1.5-litre dCI turbodiesel engine that puts out 84 hp. This is the same engine that’s there on the Nissan Micra and the Renault Logan though slightly tweaked to squeeze the extra horses.The much anticipated Duster has been pegged as a robust and affordable SUV for first time SUV buyers. It has been priced very aggressively and starts from just Rs. 7.19 lakh for the base petrol model and Rs. 7.99 lakh for the base diesel model.The Duster offers two engine options, a 1.6-litre petrol with 102bhp or a 1.5-litre diesel unit in two states of tune (85bhp and 110bhp). The diesel engine is the same one as that in the Fluence and is a rather refined motor. For city use the 85bhp version is deemed adequate while for frequent overtaking and highway duty the 110bhp version is recommended. There is only a 2 seconds difference between the 0-100kph times of both versions with the 110bhp Duster taking only about 12.5 seconds.

The Duster is available in only two-wheel drive at the moment with the front-wheels being driven via a five-speed manual transmission. Seeing the demand, Renault may launch the 4X4 at an appropriate time. The Duster has been launched in RxE and RxL trim versions for the petrol & base diesel model while the 110bhp diesel model comes in RxL and the fully loaded RxZ trim levels. The top-end variant get safety features like dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist.

Back Breaking Petrol Hike

News – The Hindu National. Daily

I remember the advice of Father of our Nation, Indian Republic.

“I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man [woman]
whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any
use to him [her]. Will he [she] gain anything by it? Will it restore him [her] to a control over his [her] own life and destiny? In other words, will it
lead to swaraj [freedom] for the hungry and spiritually starving millions?
Then you will find your doubts and your self melt away.”


– One of the last notes left behind by Gandhi in 1948, expressing his deepest social thought.

Petrol price hiked by Rs 7.50 a


23 May 2012, 1900 hrs IST, AGENCIES

Petrol rates were today raised by a massive Rs 7.54 per litre, the
first hike in rates in six months.

Petrol price in Delhi has been hiked by Rs 7.54 per litre to Rs 73.18 a litre with effect from midnight tonight,
state-owned oil companies said in separate but identical press announcements.


This is the steepest hike in petrol price ever, the previous high being Rs 5 per litre. Oil firms had
twice raised rates by Rs 5 per litre on May 15, 2011 when prices in Delhi were hiked from Rs 58.37 a litre to Rs 63.37 per litre and on May
24, 2008 when rates were raised to Rs 50.56 a litre.

The government had decontrolled petrol price in June 2010 but rates were last increased on November 4 last year. This despite oil price
rising by 14.5 per cent and 3.2 per cent fall in value of rupee against the US dollar.

Petrol in
Mumbai will cost Rs 78.57 per litre as against Rs 70.66 a litre, at present. In Kolkata, the increase will be Rs 7.85 per litre to Rs 77.88 per litre and Chennai rates going up by Rs 7.98 to Rs 77.53 per litre.


Yesterday, Oil Minister S Jaipal Reddy had stated that the depreciation in rupee had necessitated an immediate increase in fuel prices. But rates of diesel, kerosene and cooking gas have not
been revised as a high-power ministerial panel headed by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee
and having representatives of key UPA allies like TMC and DMK, hasn’t met for almost a year now.


Price of diesel, kerosene and cooking gas were last raised in June last year. “If rupee depreciates
by one against the US dollar, our oil companies lose Rs 8,000 crore (annually),” Reddy had said
yesterday. “Rupee yesterday dipped (to an all- time low of) Rs 55 (to a US dollar). Last year it was Rs 46. This translates into a loss of Rs
72,000 crore (on account of rupee depreciation) this year.”


State-owned oil firms, which had in the fiscal ending March 31, 2012 lost Rs 4,860 crore on petrol sales, were currently losing Rs 6.28 per
litre on petrol. After including 20 per cent VAT, the desired increase in petrol price in Delhi came to Rs 7.54 a litre. The losses on petrol are
besides Rs 512 crore per day that oil firms lose on selling diesel, domestic LPG and kerosene.
Diesel is currently sold at a loss of Rs 15.35 a litre, kerosene at Rs 32.98 per litre loss and oil firms lose Rs 479 on sale of every 14.2-kg domestic LPG cylinder.
The three firms had together lost Rs 138,541 crore in revenue in 2011-12. This year they are projected to lose a record Rs 193,880 crore.


During 2011-12, petrol prices were revised five times in order to bring domestic prices in line with prices in the international market. Of these,
rates were hiked on three occasions and lowered on two other. The last revision in rates on December 1 was a reduction of Rs 0.78 per litre to Rs 65.64 a litre.


“Thereafter, due to domestic market conditions, it has not been possible to change selling price of petrol in line with international prices,” Indian
Oil Corp (IOC), the largest oil retailing firm in the country, said in a statement. IOC along with
Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum lost Rs 4,651 crore in revenue since the last revision.
“Given the losses being incurred, the company is
compelled to increase the price of petrol by Rs 6.28 per litre (excluding VAT/Sales Tax) with effect from midnight of May 23/24,” the
statement said. “This excludes losses already suffered till date during current financial year,
i.e., 2012-13, which would require an additional increase of around Rs 1.50 per litre in selling price of petrol for balance part of the year.”


With government not allowing oil firms to raise fuel prices due to political considerations, the
state-owned companies had demanded thatpetrol be made a regulated product temporarily
and losses on it be made good through cashsubsidy support from the exchequer.


Alternatively, excise duty on petrol of Rs 14.78 a litre should be reduced by an amount equivalent
to the current loss on the fuel sale.
Simultaneously, states should also reduce the rates of Sales Tax, which vary from 15 per centto 33 per cent (Rs 10.30 to Rs 18.74 per litre). But with none of this happening, they raised the rates.
