YSRs nephew sacked from jobThe secretary of the AP State Council of Higher Education, Mr M.D. Christopher, has been removed from the post on Friday. He is the nephew of the late chief minister, Dr Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy. The joint director of APSCHE, Dr N. Rajasekhar Reddy, has been given additional charge as secretary.
Though Mr Christopher was scheduled to retire in July this year, the government on Friday issued orders directing him to quit the office on administrative grounds and report to his parent department in the Sri Venkateshwara University, Tirupati, where he worked as reader before his appointment to the APSCHE.
His appointment itself was controversial as the government amended the rules to appoint him as secretary. While the APSCHE norms specify professor-level candidates to be eligible for secretary post, it was relaxed to reader-level to accommodate Mr Christopher. He was given second term for three years in July 2008 during YSR regime.
Mr Christopher has been facing allegations of causing loss to the state exchequer during his six-year tenure by making purchases worth crores of rupees without following the standard tender procedures to set up nearly 60 helpline centres across the state. These helpline centres were meant to facilitate web-based counselling for Eamcet, Icet, Edcet and other entrance exams.
The department of higher education had received specific complaints against him on purchase of computers, servers, furniture and other equipment to set up the helpline centres. Though the decision to order an inquiry was taken by the then CM, Mr K. Rosaiah, in November 2010, the orders were not issued. The issue has been pending since then. With the formation of the new Cabinet in December the file had been again referred to the new minister for higher and technical education, Mr Damodara Rajanarasimha.
The minister approved the file recommending the CMO to order an inquiry by the vigilance and enforcement department against Mr Christopher.
Director duo makes wavesFilm-makers D. K. Krishna and Raj Nidimorus innings in the film world is just beginning and that too with a bang. They have been in the news lately for writing and directing the critically acclaimed Shor in the City and directing an ad with skipper M. S. Dhoni and his wife Sakshi. DK quips, Dhoni is an absolute natural and professional. Sakshi was a bit nervous, but was soon fine. Though we tried to wrap-up early, we only ended up playing galli cricket with Dhoni. It was a memorable experience.
The two were classmates at SV University and then went to the US, where Raj finished his Masters and Krishna worked with a software firm. During our stay in the US, film-making became part of our day-to-day routine. We attended workshops and seminars, wanting to learn every part of the craft, says Raj. When they were ready they shot a number of documentaries and short films, where they did everything from producing to directing to editing. Flavours, an Indo-American comedy film, was born as a result.
They began pursuing cinema full-time in 2009 with 99. It had actors like Boman Irani, Kunal Khemu, Soha Ali Khan and Cyrus Broacha and turned out to be a sleeper hit. For Shor, they tried to set a benchmark with the kind of cinema they wanted to portray. When you talk about visual brilliance, a grand multi-million set comes into your mind. In Shor, we wanted it gritty and edgy, while presenting it visually, says Raj.
Film-making was something they were always interested in doing and having worked together for so long, they hardly have any difference of opinion. In Andhra everyone is a film-maker. Everyone has an opinion about films and we were no different. Only, we took this a little a more seriously. We do have a lot of creative differences, but it doesnt make it to the set, say both of them.
Their advice to the youngsters today is very simple, Be it film-making, acting or editing, there should be a fine line drawn between realism and passion. Check your bank balances as well! they joke.
Though based in Mumbai, Hyderabad holds a special place in their hearts. Whenever in the city, they follow a routine which has now become a ritual. Night at 10 Downing Street, and midnight at Green Park hotel, relishing the biryani, they say.
Housemaid held for prof. murderThe Tirupati police arrested a housemaid, Pavitra, 30, for the murder of a woman professor of SV University here on June 30 last.
Shyamala, 45, working as professor in the department of education, was found dead under mysterious circumstances at her university quarters.
Her husband, Mr Janardhan, who took VRS as a bank employee, runs an old age home in Vizag. The police had then registered a case of suspicious death.
The breakthrough came when, based on a tip-off, police nabbed Chengaiah, 45, an attender, who revealed that Pavitra had given him jewellery for sale. It turned out that Chengaiah and Pavitra were living together.
Investigations revealed that the professor had refused to give Pavitra a loan. She had also scolded Pavitra as her children were playing on the sofa. Enraged by this, Pavitra attacked Shyamala. When she tried to escape, Pavitra strangled her and hid the body in the house.
Maid held in SVU professor murder caseThe Tirupati police on Sunday arrested a housemaid, Pavitra, 30, in the murder of a woman professor of S.V. University here on June 30.
It may be noted here that Shyamala, 45, working as professor in department of education, was found dead under mysterious circumstances at her varsity quarters in the Red Buildings, on July 2.
The police said that Pavitra had been working in the professor s house for several months.
On June 30 evening, Pavitra finished her job and while going home sought Shyamala to provide her some money. Shyamala had not only declined her request, but also chided the children of Pavitra for playing on the sofa. This enraged Pavitra, who started beating the professor.
In panic, Shyamala tried to run out of the house, but fell down, and sustained a head injury.
Immediately, Pavitra strangled the professor to death and dragged body into the house and fled from the scene.

Before that, she relieved gold ornaments on the professor s body and took away the other jewellery, all worth about Rs.5 lakh.
On August 20, based on a tip-off, the police took one Chengaiah, 45, an attender of S.V. University, while he was trying to sell gold ornaments at a jewellery shop. He confessed that the gold was given to him by Pavitra for disposing it. He also revealed that it was the housemaid who murdered the professor.
Based on the information, the police nabbed Pavitra also. The police also took Chengaiah into custody, for willingly hiding the criminal information. Both Chengaiah and Pavitra are living together, after entering into an illicit relation.
Copying rampant in exam centreSeveral irregularities are reportedly taking place at an examination centre at Gandlapenta relating to the degree and post-graduation exams of Sri Venkateswara University distance education (open university system).
Several irregularities are reportedly taking place at an examination centre at Gandlapenta relating to the degree and post-graduation exams of Sri Venkateswara University distance education (open university system).
Candidates are being reportedly given the option of writing their examination at home and bringing answer sheets if they pay Rs.500.
If they are not even interested in writing the examination, dummy candidates are being arranged for payment of Rs.2,000 for each subject.
Candidates are reportedly being given degree certificates if they pay ` 25,000.
The examination centre coordinator is reportedly giving these offers to candidates.
Mass copying is taking place at a private college in Gandlapenta relating to the degree and PG exams of SV University distance education.
Candidates are reportedly being given the question paper one day before and they are coming armed with answers and copying them. Several employees from Kurnool, Chittoor, Nellore and Kadapa districts are coming to write the exams at this centre to get degrees for promotion. They are paying money to the exam centre coordinator.
When mediapersons visited the exam centre on Friday, they found candidates copying answers. When contacted, the exam centre coordinator claimed that they had permission from higher-ups. A total of Rs.30,000 is being collected from PG students. Degree, PG, B.Tech an MBA students are acting as invigilators in the examination centre.
The same exam centre coordinator had previously conducted exams at a college in Kadiri.
Later, he shifted the centre to Gandlapenta due to allegations of mass copying.
Fill vacant VC posts, state toldThe former minister and Nagari legislator, Mr Gali Muddukrishnama Naidu, rebuked the state government for its inability to appoint vice-chancellors for various universities in the state, even when the institutions are without heads for a long time.
Speaking to media persons at the Press Club here on Sunday, Mr Naidu said that it is an indicator of the inefficiency of the present government. He alleged that the Governor is also unable to correct the situation.
He said that research and teaching, which are prime activities in the universities, have been hit because of the absence of vice-chancellors. He expressed surprise over vacant VC posts in SV University, Dravid-ian University, and Sri Padmavathi University, located in Chittoor district, event though the Chief Minister, Mr N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, belongs to the same district. The Telugu Desam leader questioned the rationale behind the delay, even where there are scores of talented and eligible academicians, available to fill the posts.
He took a dig at these universities for not announcing the results for the exams held some months back.
Mr Naidu said that the administration in these universities is not even paying pensions to the retired employees, and salaries are also not paid regularly to the NMRs. He also pointed to 3,000 lecturer posts lying vacant in various universities in the state, while blaming the government for not allotting budget to fill the posts.
He said that higher education was affected seriously, because of the unfilled posts of vice-chancellors and lecturers.
The TD legislator threatened to launch an agitation if the state government fails to allocate sufficient budget for higher education.
VC race turns very hot in SV UniversityWith the last date for applying for the coveted post of the vice-chancellor of Sri Venkateswara University, the premium university in Chittoor district, the home turf of Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy ended on January 24, over half a dozen contenders are in hectic fray, each trying to outsmart the other with their political influence or otherwise, while some of them are shuttling between Tirupati and Hyderabad.
With the last date for applying for the coveted post of the vice-chancellor of Sri Venkateswara University, the premium university in Chittoor district, the home turf of Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy ended on January 24, over half a dozen contenders are in hectic fray, each trying to outsmart the other with their political influence or otherwise, while some of them are shuttling between Tirupati and Hyderabad.
The vice-chancellor post fell vacant in the university after the tenure of Prof. N. Prabhakara Rao ended on November 21 last year. During his three-year period, Prof. Prabhakara Rao came under intense criticism for his timid nature, always cowed down politically by his subordinates.
At present, the university registrar Prof. J. Pratap Reddy, a close relative of YSR Congress state leader Bhumana Karunakar Red-dy, is said to be in the forefront to usurp the coveted post, by pressing into service all his might in Hyderabad.
Prof. Pratap Reddy is largely considered students and staff-friendly, having streamlined the varsity administration during the last one-and-a-half years.
The others in fray include Prof. M.A.K. Sukumar, department of English; Prof. C. Subbarami Reddy and Prof. Rajasekhar Reddy, both from department of statistics; Prof. W. Rajendra, department of zoology and Prof. Buddhu-du, department of physics.
Interestingly, the two retired professors – Prof. Chandramouleswara Rao and Prof. Ratnaiah – are also making their trails based on caste equations. The yardstick allowing 65 years limit for the contenders gave them the much required impetus for being in fray.
Meanwhile, the speculation in the university circles is that Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy is said to be favourable to the candidature of Prof. W. Ra-jendra based on their long-standing family friendship.
