Renault Captur available for sale in India

New Delhi, September 22, 2017: The list of countries where Renault’s successful SUV is marketed has been extended to include India. Captur was designed and developed by an international technical team which was tasked with proposing a versatile vehicle featuring a bespoke styling/equipment-specification package for the Indian market. Captur production is already under way in Chennai plant.

Over the last five years, Renault has taken significant measures to promote its growth in India through the way it is structured locally, its sales network and its model range. Thanks to this work, it has emerged as one of the fastest-growing automobile brands in India and Renault Captur’s launch marks a new phase in this strong product strategy.

Within few years, Renault’s footing in India has gained significant ground in just a short period of time to become the country’s number one European brand. The launch of Renault Captur will be backed by an expansion of the network’s coverage. In May 2011, the number of Renault sales outlets stood at just 14. The figure now exceeds 300 and is poised to rise further before the end of 2017.

It was a sight to behold: a metallic yellow Ferrari F12tdf sparkling in the sunlight on the roof terrace of Milan’s trend-setting Galleria Sozzani at Corso Como 10. An unusual but intriguing picture. But how did the Ferrari get there and why? The F12tdf was hoisted onto the building’s roof terrace with a crane last Monday as part of an initiative by the Italian design association ADI (Associazione per il Design Industriale) to celebrate Ferrari’s F12 berlinetta, the winner of its prestigious Compasso d’Oro Award. Introduced last year in a limited series of 799, this high performance Ferrari with its bold muscular shape was sold out before it was even publicly announced.

Berkeley, California: Indian National Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi today began his two-week visit to the US during which he will interact with global thinkers and political leaders as part of an outreach initiative by his party.

In his first engagement, Gandhi would address students of the prestigious University of California, Berkeley, on ‘India at 70: Reflections on the Path Forward’, in which he would talk about his vision about India and where the country is leading.

“He is here at the University of California, Berkeley, where Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru addressed in 1949 as the Prime Minister. Today we are at the cross roads where core value of Indian democracy, secularism, and pluralistic society is in danger,” Congress spokesman Madhu Goud Yaskhi said.

The event venue is full and the registration for Rahul Gandhi’s talk has already been closed. The event will be held at the Chevron Auditorium, UC Berkeley International House, from 6.30 PM to 8 PM local time.

The event is being sponsored by the Institute for South Asia Studies, UC Berkeley; and the Berkeley Research on Contemporary India Program, Institute of International Studies, UC Berkeley.

Image provided by & copyright © World Economic Forum. Photographer: Sikarin Thanachaiary. The 2018 World University Rankings launched today at the ongoing THE World Academic Summit in London feature 1,000 institutions for the first time. The rankings feature institutions from 77 different countries. • The University of Oxford has held on to the number one spot for the second year in a row, while the University of Cambridge has jumped from fourth to second place. Cambridge’s rise comes at the expense of the California Institute of Technology, which was number one between 2012 and 2016, number two last year, and now shares third position with Stanford. Louise Richardson, Oxford’s vice-chancellor, said that she was “delighted that Oxford has held its position at the top of these global rankings”. “To be judged the best university in the world for the second successive year, against a backdrop in which Britain’s role in the world is uncertain and the place of universities in society open to question, will be a great source of pride for everyone at Oxford,” said Professor Richardson. “Success in our field is never an accident,” she added, stating that it is “achieved by a relentless pursuit of excellence, creative brilliance and a deep commitment to our enduring values”. Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, Cambridge’s vice-chancellor, said that the result confirms that the university “is among a small group of the most respected higher education institutions globally”. Peking University has risen two places to joint 27th, which puts it on a par with New York University and the University of Edinburgh. While Tsinghua University has climbed five places to 30th, overtaking the University of Melbourne, Georgia Institute of Technology, LMU Munich and École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. Both those Chinese institutions have improved in terms of their reputations for teaching and research this year.

Navika Sagar Parikrama is a project wherein a team of women officers of the Indian Navy would circumnavigate the globe on an Indian-built sail boat INSV Tarini.

The all-women crew have trained extensively for the forthcoming voyage. They have sailed approximately 20,000 Nm onboard INSV Mhadei and Tarini as part of training, which includes two expeditions to Mauritius (in 2016 and 2017) and a voyage from Goa to Cape Town in Dec 16.

This is the first ever Indian circumnavigation of the globe by an all-women crew. The project is considered essential towards promoting Ocean Sailing activities in the Navy while depicting Government of India’s thrust for ‘Nari Shakti’ (Women Power).
