Today’s Doodle Is Dedicated to Cornelia Sorabji’s,India’s first woman advocate

Cornelia was born in Nashik in the erstwhile Bombay Presidency of colonial India on this day in 1866. Her parents Reverend Sorabji Karsedji and Francina Ford were advocates of women’s education and established several girls’ schools in Pune. They encouraged Cornelia to take higher studies, and she went on to become the first woman to be graduated from Bombay University.

Cornelia took up law at the famous Oxford University and it was no easy task. It was a time when universities were reluctant to accept female students. The National Indian Association came to Cornelia’s help. Her English friends petitioned on her behalf to allow her to sit for Civil Laws exam at Somerville College, Oxford. In 1894, she completed her course, but the University didn’t award her a degree. Oxford University started awarding degrees to women only since 1922.

Even after completion of her education, Cornelia was not allowed to plead in courts both in England as well as India. She returned to her homeland and became a legal advisor. She took the cause of purdahnashins, the veiled women who were forbidden to interact with men outside their families. She helped widowed purdahnashins get their rightful share of the property, helped them pursue education and secure employment. She succeeded in pursuing the government to appoint Lady Assistants to the courts to help women litigants.

Cornelia again appeared for LLB examination in Bombay University to obtain a law degree, becoming the first woman graduate from the institution. She cleared the pleader examination in Allahabad High Court in 1899 but she was not acknowledged as a barrister.

Only in 1923 colonial courts opened their doors to women advocates. The next year Cornelia began practicing in Kolkata. In addition to pleading for her clients, she had to fight bias and male domination in courts. Six years later she retired and moved to London. She died on July 6, 1954.

She has published two autobiographies India Calling: The Memories of Cornelia Sorabji, and India Recalled, a biography of her parents, and numerous articles on Purdahnashins.

Hijab-wearing Barbie doll-Doll Modeled After Ibtihaj Muhammad

The maker of Barbie has announced it will sell a doll modeled after Ibtihaj Muhammad, an American fencer who competed in last year’s Olympics while wearing a hijab.

The doll is part of the Barbie “Shero” line that honors women who break boundaries. Past dolls have included gymnast Gabby Douglas and “Selma” director Ava DuVernay.

Muhammad, the first American to compete at the Olympics while wearing a hijab, won a bronze medal in fencing at the 2016 Rio Game.

Today’s Google Doodle is Dedicated to the 131st Anniversary of Hole Punture

Today’s Google Doodle is Dedicated to the 131st Anniversary of Hole Punture.

The origins of the hole punch date back to Germany via Matthias Theel, where two early patents for a device designed to “punch holes in paper” have since[when?] been discovered.[4] Friedrich Soennecken filed his patent on 14 November 1886, for his Papierlocher für Sammelmappen.

hole punch (also known as a hole puncher) is a common office tool that is used to create holes in sheets of paper, often for the purpose of collecting the sheets in a binder or folder. A leather punch, of different construction from one designed for paper, is used for leather goods, cloth, or thin plastic sheeting. Hole punch tools are also made for use on sheet metal, such as aluminum siding or metal air ducts.A typical hole punch, whether a single or multiple hole punch,

One lakh Indians book ticket for Mars

Around 1,38,899, people from India are Mars-bound. They have ‘booked’ a flight to the Red Planet via Nasa’s InSight (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) mission slated for launch on May 5, 2018. Nasa states that those who submitted their names were provided online ‘boarding passes’ for the mission.

The names are being etched on a silicon wafer microchip using an electron beam to form letters with lines one one-thousandth the diameter of of a human hair. This chip will then be attached to the top hull of the lander.

Several Indians responded to Nasa’s call for names for the Mars mission. The total number of names received by Nasa from all over the world is 2,429,807.

According to Nasa on Wednesday, India ranks third in the global list with regard to the number of names submitted for the Mars mission.

The first is the US with 6,76,773 names followed by China with 2,62,752 names. India stands at number three.

Space experts point out that US leading the list is not surprising since it is, after all, a NASA mission. However, they do say that the fact that India is next to China is a matter of significance. They attribute India being ranked among the first three nations to two factors: the excitement and interest in Mars flights triggered by India’s ground-breaking Mangalyaan mission, and the overall strengthening of India-US space ties.

Slated for landing near the Mars equator on November 26, 2018, it is a 720-day mission, which will gather data on the Martian interior by monitoring Marsquakes.

B.E. MBA MCA graduates appeared for “Sweeper Exam” held in HC, Chennai

On Last Sunday, the Written exam for the Sweepers happened in High Court, Chennai. More than 3000 people participated in this examination & shockingly 2500 cleared it successfully but the more shocking thing is yet to come. When the Lawyers and evaluation panel of High Court tried to find the reason behind it that how 2500 candidates out of 3000 cleared the examination then they came to know that all the selected candidates were B.E., MBA, MCA graduates. Yes, you heard it right. B.E., MBA, MCA graduates applied for the position for which 8th Standard candidates were required.

Now, the question arises whether it’s joblessness or the greed of Government Job because if the same vacancy arises in the Private Sector, none of them will apply.

Please write your views in the comment.

Indian 4G speed lowest in 77 nations

India has 84.03% 4G availability, making it one of the top countries in terms of 4G availability, according to a report by OpenSignal. However, in terms of 4G speed, India lies at the very bottom among 77 countries with 6.13 Mbps being the average speed.

The report highlighted that there is no country that has yet cracked 50 Mbps average 4G download speed even though some of the operators may have broken this barrier but there is no country that has consistently been able to provide LTE connections greater than 50 Mbps. South Korea and Singapore cut the closest with average 45.9 Mbps and 46.6 Mbps 4G speeds respectively.

This Japan Company Gives Non-Smokers 6 Extra Paid Leaves

One Japanese marketing firm has reportedly offered its non-smoking workers an extra six days of paid leave a year after they kicked up a stink about their smoking colleagues taking too much time during cigarette breaks.

According to a report from the UK’s ‘The Telegraph’, Piala Inc. introduced the system as a way to appease disgruntled employees who believed it took far too long for smoking workers to travel between the company’s 29th-floor head office and the basement smoking area in their Tokyo-based building

“One of our non-smoking staff put a message in the company suggestion box earlier in the year saying that smoking breaks were causing problems,” a Piala spokesperson told ‘The Telegraph’.

“Our CEO saw the comment and agreed, so we are giving non-smokers some extra time off to compensate.”

At least 22 people dead in Power Plant Explosion

At least 22 people have been killed and as many as 100 injured in a blast at a coal-fired power plant in north India’s Uttar Pradesh state, officials say.

About 80 people have been rushed to the company hospital, the government-owned plant operator National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) Limited said.

A further 10 people with serious injuries were sent to other facilities.

NTPC said there had been a “sudden abnormal sound” and an escape of gases and steam before the explosion.

The firm has launched an investigation into the blast at the plant, based near the town of Unchahar.

A state police chief, Anand Kumar, said in a video statement, that preliminary findings suggested ash had collected in the furnace below the boiler, which meant “pressure built up inside and led to the blast”.

Singapore bans additional cars-there’s no more room for them

Singapore, one of the world’s most expensive places to own a vehicle, will not allow any growth in its car population from February, citing the small city-state’s land scarcity and billions of dollars in planned public transport investments.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) said it was cutting the permissible vehicle growth rate in the city-state to 0 percent from the current 0.25 percent per annum for cars and motorcycles. The rate will be reviewed in 2020.

Singapore tightly controls its vehicle population by setting an annual growth rate and through a system of bidding for the right to own and use a vehicle for a limited number of years. It is one of the most densely populated nations on the planet and already has an extensive public transport system.

Currently, 12 percent of Singapore’s total land area is taken up by roads, the LTA said. “In view of land constraints and competing needs, there is limited scope for further expansion of the road network,” it said.

Singapore, whose total population has risen nearly 40 percent since 2000 to about 5.6 million now, counted more than 600,000 private and rental cars on its roads as of last year. These include cars used by drivers that work with ride-hailing services such as Grab and Uber, which are becoming increasingly popular.

A mid-range car in Singapore can typically cost four times the price in the United States.

Singapore has expanded its rail network length by 30 percent and has added new routes and capacity to its bus network. The government will continue to invest S$20 billion ($14.7 billion) in new rail infrastructure, S$4 billion to renew, upgrade and expand rail operating assets, and another S$4 billion in bus contracting subsidies over the next five years, the LTA said.

The LTA will keep ……

गूगल ने आज इन पर बनाया अपना डूडल, जानें कौन थे क़वी?
