The programme was aptly named 'Voyage from Stress to Serenity'. He enunciated the salients of his two books, 'Perfect Health in 20 Weeks' and 'Stress to Serenity'. The session proved to be a refreshing change for Hallmarkites who learnt how to keep excessive stress at bay and manage it properly. There were some meditative postures also exhibited which the students followed with enthusiasm. During the interaction Amar Chandel unveiled his holistic remain healthy regime. It was a combination of right food, good habits and right exercises meant to keep the body in shape. 

According to Amar Chandel, the idea is that one should heal body without medicines since the body itself had a capability to self heal." He also highlighted how, modern day food has been impacting kids' health negatively. He said, "There are nine things to take care of to keep the body in shape: food, water, air or breathing, physical movement or exercise, rest, sleep, positive attitude, right social interaction, and - believe it or not - common sense. The students attending the session were awed by the frank and yet simple discourse of Amar Chandel. As he expertly told the children, to avoid stress and tension due to peer pressure, examinations, academics and parents' pressure to excel. He also autographed his book formally launched at Hallmark: Stress to Serenity, as he presented copies at the interaction with students.   

Mrs. Kavita Wadhwa, Principal said, that stress is a scourge of the 21st century and even schoolchildren are feeling it. This activity was aimed at making students aware about the fallouts of 'nervous tension' and management of stress. They got an insight into integral yoga, naturopathy and holistic healing in the interaction with Amar Chandel.


Jivtesh Garg, Director, Hallmark said, that the activity introduced students to a prolific writer- Mr Amar Chandel. Moreover, examination stress and the rat race to be one up on the other in all areas of schooling have contributed to the malaise of stress in young students. So we wanted to organise an event that could reduce the negative impact of this trend.

Google Launches social campaign-Reach ForThe Sky

By 121 News Reporter

Chandigarh 22nd September:- Google today announced the launch of a new social campaign called "ReachForTheSky", in association with MARD initiative. The joint campaign launchedwww.hwgo.com/reach as part of Google's helping women get online initiative, will look to build support from existing Internet users and encourage more women to learn and use the Internet to excel in their lives. The campaign was launched with a musical work "ChuleinAasmaan", composed by Salim-Sulaiman and performed Live with Farhan Akhtar (singer, writer, performer) and Shraddha Pandit (co- Lyricist) Joining hands with Google's 'Helping Women Get Online' initiative, MARD (started by Farhan Akhtar) stands to inspire change in society, to gather support for women empowerment. The jointly promoted campaign will look to generate awareness around the need to get women online as well as encourage existing users to help get more women online, and spread awareness of Gender Equality and Women Empowerment.

Speaking about the importance of getting more women online, Rajan Anandan, VP & Managing Director, Google India, said, that easy and quick access to information can transform lives. India is on its way to become the second largest Internet population in the world but usage of Internet amongst women in India is lower than most countries in the world. There are 616 million women in India. Close to half of the women are below 25 years age bracket. Empowering the young women population with information and Internet related tools could transform India's future. And I am delighted to share, that for the first time in India, women Internet users growth rate in urban India has exceeded men in the last one year. And we need to build on this start, and join the campaign with MARD to encourage more and more women to come online.

 Talking about the association and the launch of the campaign, Farhan Akhtar, said, that MARD is a progressive movement for a more gender equal world. Our objective is to ask men to re-think their own value system and to be the catalyst for change. There is lack of encouragement for women from their families and friends to use Internet or technology to excel in life and we need to come together to address this issue. Technology is not just the domain of men. Democratizing access to information can empower women in our country and raise their status in our society. I am excited to join this initiative with our partners, to gather support and encourage men to support and help young girls and women in both urban and rural India to learn and use the internet to improve lives.

 Sharing the details of Google's helping women get online campaign,Sandeep Menon, Head of Marketing, Google India, said that our Mission is to help bring 50 million women online in India. In the last 9 months we have undertaken a number of initiatives reaching over 1 million women across 5 states in India, covering 30 cities and 55 small towns. We have reached out to 950 educational institutes spread across these 5 states, imparted basic training to over 45,000 girl students and have trained over 5000 teachers who can continue to educate and inform more girl students. This is a tough task for us and we are constantly learning and adapting to cater to the needs of women in India. We have introduced HWGO Internet Cart, a mobile way of reaching out to women in villages who find it difficult to travel for our training sessions and we will roll it out across rural areas in more states of India.



IFC Issues Maharaja Bonds, Attracting Foreign Investment

By 121 News Reporter

Chandigarh 22nd September:- IFC, today issued its first onshore rupee bond, setting an international triple-A benchmark for the country's domestic capital markets. The IFC Maharaja bonds raised Indian rupees 6 billion, or approximately $100 million, from international and domestic institutional investors.  The bonds will be listed on India's National Stock Exchange (NSE). The bonds offer an innovative structure to attract different types of investors to India's capital markets. There are four different tranches with different maturities under the same issuance: a five-year bullet bond of $25 million, a 10-year bullet bond of $25 million, and two separately tradeable redeemable principal parts (STRPPs) with maturities ranging from 13 to 20 years. IFC can increase the size of issuance according to its funding needs under the STRPP structure. All proceeds of bonds issued under this structure will be used for infrastructure investments in India. The listing of IFC Maharaja bonds shows NSE's continued commitment to working with global partners to bring high-quality issuers and increase the depth and vibrancy of India's domestic capital markets. HSBC, ICICI Securities Primary Dealership, and SBI Capital Markets were the lead arrangers for the issuance.

 IFC Vice President and Treasurer Jingdong Hua said that deep, efficient capital markets are the foundations of long-term growth because they create access to finance for the private sector. The innovative structure of IFC's Maharaja bonds enables us to efficiently connect savings from international and domestic investors to investments in infrastructure, while setting a triple-A pricing benchmark in the domestic capital markets that will pave the way for other high-credit issuers.He added that  we appreciate the support of the government of India and the regulatory agencies for IFC's efforts to develop and deepen the offshore and onshore rupee markets.


NSE Managing Director & CEO Chitra Ramkrishna said that the IFC Maharaja Rupee bond is an important issuance for the Indian fixed income markets. This was possible due to the combined efforts and commitment of the Finance Ministry and the regulators, Securities and Exchange Board of India and Reserve Bank of India. We believe issuances such as this will go a long way to create vibrant debt markets in the country. 

The IFC Maharaja bonds are issued under a $2.5 billion program, to support India's domestic capital markets. The issuance follows IFC's successful completion earlier this year of a global rupee bond program which raised $1 billion from investors globally. In FY14, IFC invested $1.2 billion in India along its strategic priorities of providing counter-cyclical support to infrastructure, promoting financial inclusion, and enhancing access to quality and affordable healthcare to the under-served. IFC invested close to $380 million to support infrastructure development in the country during the last fiscal.
