My Battle Is To Give Hope To Many Others To Fight Against Injustice – Sachiin Joshi

“An average Indian believes that an investment in gold passes down generations, more so when a celebrity endorses a company that is offering the said gold scheme. My legal battle is merely a representation of many of the investors of Satyug Gold who might have invested in the gold scheme at a discounted rate, only to never receive the gold,” says actor-entrepreneur Sachiin Joshi, who, after paying Rs. 18,57,870 on March 25, 2014, has been asked by the then Shilpa Shetty-Raj Kundra promoted Satyug Gold to pay a penalty of Rs. 25,50,000 in order to collect the gold for which an amount of Rs 18,57,870 had already been paid to them six years ago. “If I am asked to pay Rs 25 lakh to collect Rs 18 lakh gold after six years of my hard-earned money lying with a company, imagine the state of the common man who must have invested believing a celebrity who endorsed a company as its Chairman! I feel defrauded to say the least. And then I realised that I should stand up against what is wrong as I might be the hope for many others.” The matter is subjudice through arbitration in accordance with the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 of India. As per the court, Satyug Gold was made to deposit the 1kg of gold with the Prothonotary and Senior Master of the Hon. Bombay High Court, who then took custody of the gold and sealed and secured it in the High Court’s strong-room/vault. As Sachiin Joshi was abroad, his counsel requested that the gold be handed over to his representative. As the hearing and final disposal of the arbitration proceedings and for was in a period of two weeks from the date of receipt of a copy of the Award by the parties and / or their Advocates, the Prothonotary and Senior Master shall continue to retain the gold bar weighing 1.022 kg in the safe deposit vault opened / obtained in his name in the Bank of India pursuant to the directions of G.S.Patel, J. dated 7th September, 2020. Sachiin Joshi has earlier filed a complaint on January 18th of this year in Khar Police Station, Mumbai, under sections 406, 409 and 420 of the IPC for the alleged fraudulent representation and nonreceipt of gold after six years of making the payment to Satyug Gold at the behest of Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty who  were then, the office-bearers of the... read more

Lido Learning Launches 10CR Young Leaders Scholarship Fund Scholarship Fund 100 Crore Over The Next 2 Years

Lido Learning Launches 10CR Young Leaders Scholarship Fund Scholarship Fund 100 crore over the next 2 years Edtech company Lido Learning launches first of its kind Young Leaders Scholarship of 10 crores to help India’s best students become the country’s future leaders. The aim is to get this Scholarship Fund to 100 crore over the next 2 years. Lido Learning, which offers small group tutoring to students in Grade 4-9 in Maths, Science, English and Coding, has seen massive month-on- month growth during the pandemic, as more and more parents have opted to replace in-person school and tuition with online learning. However, the rising unemployment has made it difficult for many stellar students to be able to afford to continue studying online. Thanks to Lido’s billionaire investors like Ronnie Screwvala (Founder UTV, UpGrad) and Vikram Singhania (Managing Director of JK Tyres), we have been able to launch our Young Leaders Scholarship Fund to ensure that India’s best students do not have any break in their learning and development,” said Sahil Sheth, CEO. “Our mission is to democratize high quality education and this fund is another way for us to achieve that aim.” The fund will give out scholarships of Rs. 20,000 to deserving students from Grade 4-10. Selected students will become part of Lido’s flagship Young Leaders Program.  The program combines an interdisciplinary course of Math, English, Coding, Science and Leadership with career mentorship, hackathons and masterclasses with leaders in order to give students a well-rounded education to be the leaders of tomorrow. The curriculum has been designed by an expert team from Harvard and Stanford School of Education and focuses on building problem solving, technical skills, communication skills, confidence and creativity. “With NEP 2020, the new government directive is clear: we should be focusing on holistic, skill based learning and our Young Leaders Program does exactly that,” said Sheth. “It’s no longer good enough to train to be just an engineer, when most people are going to change careers at least 7 times, and when 800 million jobs are going to be lost to Artificial Intelligence. You need to have a very diverse and flexible skillset and the mind-set to change the world, if you want to be part of the 5% that will be giving orders to machines, rather than the 95% taking orders from them.” The Young Leaders Scholarship Fund will be disbursing the first of the grants starting August 10 and the Learning to Lead... read more

Another Producer Shalini Shrivastav,Owner of Breakfree Meaningful Media and entertainment Pvt ltd, has produced this song as a salute to the warriors in this unique idea with Zest Melange, and together they come out with an extraordinary video song which other corporate houses will follow. It’s been written, composed and crooned by Jeet Pramanik and beautifully directed by Rajeev Shrivastava. “Rajeev” had gathered the crew and shown the passion to shoot inside the Corona hospital  . Rajiv also penned down the dialogues which makes “Naman hai “one of the different genre of music album .Further it’s edited by Manish Pandey. As much as the song is inspirational, the makers journey from an ultra-successful businessman to song    producer is nothing sort of inspiration as well. Talking about the circumstances which lead team Zest Melange to “Naman Hai”, Dhruv said, “I believe in my leader, Narendra Modi. I was running a successful business but once he called for digital India, I turned my entire company into E-commerce enterprise. Our leader called out “Vocal for Local”, we’re only company in India, which manufactures clothing which is made in Indian, made for India. Dhruv also expressed his gratitude towards Shri Yogi Adityanath “Gorakhnath Mandir” Guptashwar Pandey “DGP Bihar” Dr Dinesh Kurmi “Dr. Kurmis Multispeciality Hospital, Mumbai” Rahul Mahajan Nasir Johnny Walker Vinay kumar Gautam “DOP of Gorakhnath Mandir” IPS Anand Vardhan Shukla “Former IG Traffic Jaipur” Lt.Col. Saumitra Joshi (Retd) Suriaya Wadiwala  “Lions Club of Lonavala supremos” Media/Digital  Partner “Ruchika Gupta of Media Fourth” “New song is an ode to Narendra Modi and all the Covid-warriors who are contributing in their own capacity. Whether a police officer, doctor, nursing staff, attendant, cleaning crew, garbage hauler, or perhaps a common man, the song is all about inclusion and our heartfelt respect and gratitude towards the people who are stirring us through this muddy times” Driven by a very strong belief to make this fashion desirable to the Indian corporates, Zest Mélange has the heart in the right place as they are in straight alignment with the view of pollution control as they don’t use any plastic fibers and everything is Indian about. The best part about the product is that it’s our pride and it’s world’s best for India’s finest which won’t be... read more

IBJA Gave Immense Contribution Towards Covid-19 Says Mr Prithviraj Kothari

The entire world has shaken up and so is India due to Corona pandemic. This has resulted in complete lockdown almost in 200 countries around the world and India is no exception to this. India has also declared complete lockdown since 25th March 2020. As our lockdown is extended 4th time now, we understand that life of people will go through radical changes and almost every business will suffer. As a responsible 101 old association of bullion and jewellery, we immediately swing in to action to help the industry. The task was not simple as we have offices in 31 states across the country. We immediately called the web meeting to decide on the following point. 1. How to help workers for their daily needs. 2. How to secure business premises of the jewellers. 3. What kind of stimulus package will be needed for the industry. 4. What can be our exit plan from lock down? 5. Preparation of SOP post lockdown. Immediately, we formed various committees to look after this. What we realised that we need to protect all the people in the supply chain and not only our members. The focus was to save the industry and trade and not only to save our members. We immediately formed one unit under IBJA as “Jewellers fight Corona (JFC)”. The purpose was to involve entire supply chain affected people and not only bullion dealers and jewellers. Going further, various committee were formed and assigned various jobs as per the point discussed above. Our biggest challenge was to help the workers, who were back bone of the industry. Thus, we divided entire workforce in to three categories as under. a. Karigar employed by jewellery Manufacturer b. Contractors engaged by the jewellery manufacturer under whom various small workers are working. C. Small karigars who are neither employed nor working under any contractor. We immediately went into action and started calling all the manufacturer to ensure that they take care of karigar employed by them. Though task was difficult, almost all big jewellery manufacturers ensured us that they shall ensure minimum basic need of their karigar employed by them. Secondly, we started calling up big contractors and took an assurance from all the contracts also that they shall also ensure minimum basic need of the karigar working under his contract. Both this promises resulted in our focus being shifted to small karigars. We took special permission from police authorities and visited few... read more
