Formus presents Neo Kaansa Collection by Designer Fenny Ganatra

Formus presents Neo Kaansa Collection by Designer Fenny Ganatra

The Neo Kaansa collection by designer Fenny Ganatra for Formus embodied via The Living Suite is a curation of modern pieces with a timeless appeal outlined with Kaansa or brass. Fenny G’s vision behind the collection arose from the need to reboot classic forms through a vibrant use of colours and sumptuous elements of brass, which are the very inspiration behind the collection.
The existence and use of Kaansa can be traced back to the Indian subcontinent’s history for centuries. Designer Fenny Ganatra explores new routes to use this malleable element through statuesque pieces of furniture. The Neo Kaansa Collection of bespoke furniture made using rich, royal and classic colours, blends minimal designs with desired materials and a touch of Kaansa. Fenny Ganatra’s curious eye does a rendezvous with a broad spectrum of materials ranging from premium natural wood and wood veneer to brass pipes and brass veneer. These accents in brass lend a nude opulence to modern and avant garde design.

Besides Kaansa, the inspiration behind the collection’s design language comes to life through Fenny G’s collaboration with Formus. Formus’s take on timeless forms, and brand Fenny G’s fresh perspective, brings together an artistic mélange of tailored furniture, the Neo Kaansa Collection.

Washing Dirty Linen In Public or A Publicity Stint…!! Hrithik- Kangna Squabble Gets Meaner…!!

Washing Dirty Linen In Public or A Publicity Stint…!! Hrithik- Kangna Squabble Gets Meaner…!!

Its been over a month that stories of Hrithik-Kangana’s alleged affair and break up stories are doing rounds..the social media is too full of fact they themselves are using social media actively to make their point and now gone to the extent of releasing legal statements against each other.. But my question is.. Is this really required.. are the fans interested in knowing so much about the personal lives of our film stars or are the stars themselves making a mockery out of their life situations.

Do they own a justification.. aren’t they normal humans too, can’t they settle their own issues amicably without making a hue and cry about it or is the media itself that makes the mountain out of a molehill. I guess these questions will always remain unanswered…!!
“Hrithik Breaks His Silence and Releases a Statement”- when was he quiet at the first place, innumerable tweets have already given enough dope to media and public. And now following the tit for tat policy, Kangana too releases a legal statement, meanwhile media and public enjoy the overhyped squabble and gain some dope for masala posts for their social and other media.
For those who have missed it.. here it is.. excerpts from both statements
In his official statement sent through his publicist, Hrithik Roshan has spoken about the fake email id through which he alleges someone was impersonating him.
“Anything private that becomes public gives rise to speculation and unnecessary controversies simply because the general public are not privy to the whole truth.Out of respect for everyone involved, I followed the legal path to resolve the matter in question so as to keep it private. It was a breach of ethics to reveal the contents of a private legal notice. Dignified silence is dignified up to a point, but there comes a time when the silence needs to be broken to protect one’s name, family and image.The crux of the matter is that the mail id [email protected] does NOT belong to me. I had filed a complaint in this regard with Mumbai Cyber Crime cell on 12 December, 2014 when I learnt of this impersonator communicating with said person. I have absolutely NO CONNECTION with this ID. The entire issue stems from a case of identity theft which has carried over to me. My complaint was reactivated on March 5, 2016 and the crime unit has made headway in tracking this person down. Once that is done, the matter can be laid to rest.And finally, I believe that mental health is a grave and crucial issue which merits serious discussion. I would never address it flippantly nor use it as a personal attack. Any allegation to the contrary is a misrepresentation of facts. I was requested to keep silent and I did so for 2 years.”
Meanwhile, here’s Kangana’s entire statement.
Mr. Hrithik’s statements made to the media are nothing but efforts to gain public sympathy. He cannot wash his hands off the matter now after having criminally threatened my client and having intimidated her, without any provocation. He also cannot deny the fact that my client never named him anywhere and it was he himself who claimed to be “Silly Ex” in his notice. Besides his own acts of stating in the media that he would rather ‘date a Pope’ gave enough fodder to the media to start speculating. How can he blame my client for all his own acts of commissions and omissions.
Further, he should have refrained from making absolutely false statements in his notice. He specifically claimed that he does not know my client socially at all. If that were the truth, then how was he attending my client’s private birthday party with his entire family and my client was attending his party besides his sister’s and his father’s birthday party as well. There is enough proof on public platform, which sufficiently proves that Mr. Hrithik Roshan’s is lying.
Pursuant to my counter-notice there are now new claims that my client was not co-operating with the police to help with investigation of Mr. Hrithik’s complaint. These claims are as false as his other claims. The fact is that my client was never dealing with any imposter and given the background of the matter, it is very lame on Mr. Hrithik’s part to even suggest that. Besides my client was never ever asked for any co-operation in the said matter by any person for obvious reasons. The fact that Mr. Hrithik waited for seven month to lodge a complaint says it all. Now pursuant to receipt of my notice the complaint is once again being looked into by Mr. Hrithik Roshan, only as a face saving strategy.
It is also worthy to note that Mr. Hrithik Roshan specifically claims to have received 50 unsolicited emails per day from my client for about 601 days (as calculated from 24th May 2014 up to 16th February 2016). Accordingly, he should have received more than 30,000 (thirty thousand) emails from my client as against his own alleged claim of receiving only 1,439 emails from my client during the said period. This shows that there is non application of mind even while making allegations. At least make efforts to do the calculations. Besides if Mr. Hrithik Roshan was really receiving unsolicited emails from my client then why did he not prudently block my client and went on receiving my client’s emails for such a long time. The answer is obvious.
His own actions speak a lot and I need not say more on behalf of my client Ms. kangana Ranaut. Most importantly I would like to point out that at least Mr. Hrithik Roshan should have bothered to ensure that he has a good reason to send a Legal Notice to my client. However as expected the notice is absolutely baseless, unsubstantiated, unwarranted and uncalled for. There is not even a case of defamation made out against my client and he is issuing a Notice for defamation without application of mind.
He needs to immediately realise that my client Ms. Kangana Ranaut does not need Mr. Hrithik Roshan’s name to garner publicity or attention, as she is a renowned public figure herself.

IMS, Noida hosts 3 day Management Development Program on Strategic Cost Management

IMS, Noida hosts 3 day Management Development Program on Strategic Cost Management

Strategic Cost Management

Former World Bank expert and currently a faculty at IIM Ahmedabad, Prof Rajendra Patel will offer insights to management executives and students on various aspects of cost management

Noida, 17 March 2016: In an effort to help improve management practices in the industry and devising better cost management strategies, leading management institute IMS Noida today began its three-day periodic Management Development Programme that brings together leading academics, industry insiders and experts in the field.
This year’s programme is discussing Strategic Cost Management, a crucial subject in management studies that pertains to the economics of reducing costs without compromising on quality and delivery.
Professor Rajendra Patel from IIM Ahmedabad will offer his valuable inputs and new perspectives on methods and techniques for appropriate cost planning, importance of managing costs and aligning them with the business strategy of an entity.

The forces of globalization, liberalization and privatization have not only knitted the world economies closer together but the spill-over effects of the changes happening in world are today felt more strongly and swiftly by all the economies. It is cost effectiveness that prompt hundreds of western companies to outsource jobs to low-cost destinations like India. Cost effectiveness is the key to competitiveness in a highly connected world like ours. Hence, there is greater need today to recognize different costing systems and strategies and devise better managerial decisions and business strategies to constantly remain cost effective.
“As a discipline, management studies needs to constantly evolve itself to include in its paradigm the changing needs of the time, which keep throwing up new challenges into the discipline. Cost management is an area of management that needs constant re-thinking and evolution to keep tiding over the rising costs. Today, Indian organizations may be benefitting from the outsourcing boom because of low labor costs; however, the wages are bound to increase and they need to devise other strategies to keep costs low and their competitive advantage high. The management development programme is an initiative from our end to help the management sector improve on various fronts. This year we are discussing of cost management as it forms of the basis of any enterprise and management,” said Dr KJS Anand, Executive Director, IMS Noida.
The first day of the programme began with inauguration and lamp lightening by Dr Debarshi Mukherjee, Chairperson, Centre for e-Commerce, IMS, Noida and Dr KJS Anand, Executive Director, IMS, Noida. The day introduced the participants to the basics such as costing terminology, cost objects, cost drivers, break-even analysis using concept of relevant costs, conventional method of indirect cost allocation, activity-based costing in product industry, service industry, relevant costs for alternative choice decisions etc. While the day 2 of the programme will discuss aspects of Management Control & Organizational Performance, ProPt Centres  & Transfer Price issues, Analysis of Financial Performance, Corporate Performance Measurement in Multi Divisional Companies, Performance Measurement – Balanced Scorecard – Beyond Financial Numbers, Day 3 will deal with issues Target Costing ,Value Engineering, Just-in-Time, Theory of Constraints, Life Cycle Costing etc.
“With India emerging as the third largest startup ecosystem in the world, there is growing demand for efficient and innovative management graduates who are adept and trained at devising new strategies to resolve problems. While globalization has made more markets easily available, improved connectivity and helped fasten business processes, it has also increased competition and challenges to new businesses manifold. Hence, management development programmes are necessary to provide relevant training to the executives of different sectors of the economy operating at different levels in the organizational hierarchy, through real-world case studies, group discussions, and interactive presentations. I am honored to receive to the opportunity from IMS, Noida to share my knowledge and experience with all the management people,” said Prof Rajendra Patel.

A visiting faculty at IIM Ahmedabad for Finance & Accounting now and a past association of twelve years as a regular faculty, Prof Patel specializes in management planning and control. He worked closely with World Bank in debt rescheduling and providing balance of payment support for central African countries as a senior manager with Peat Marwick Mitchell & Co during 1978 -1985 and with Rolls Royce plc group as Finance director for over fourteen years. He has to his credit over 100 training programmes in India and Asia Pacific region.
