Coin museum inaugurated at Nizam-era Royal Mint building

Coin museum

The Nizam-era Royal Mint building at Saifabad has been given a fresh lease of life when a coin museum was inaugurated in the 119-year-old lime and mortar heritage structure last week.

Once it had housed modern machinery used for making the finest coins since the State of Hyderabad under the zams was the only native state which enjoyed the privilege of coinage in British India. How- ever, when the Indian Government Mint shifted to Cherla- pally in 1997 this building tucked at the back of the Secretariat and the iconic Hussain Sagar found itself abandoned. Many of the old machines that made coins of exceptional quality with calligraphic beauty were left behind.

However, in 1921 the Security Printing and Minting Corporation of India (SPMCIL)-of which the  India Government Mint Hyderabad is a unit – decided to set up a coin museum as a part of the adaptive reuse of the heritage building. The museum, inaugurated last week as a part of the Azadi ke Amrit Mahotsav turn drew a large number of visitors who were mesmerized by the history of coin making, that of the mint, its old equipment, and coin collection. The exhibits also traced the timeline of the Royal Mint of the Nizam. The first mint in Hyderabad was established in 1803 at Moghalpura by Sikander Jah, the third Nizam after whom Secunderabad Cantonment was named.

At this private mint coins were produced in the name of the Mughal Emperor although by then the Nizams had established their independence in the Deccan.

The coins produced were of crude quality. In 1858, after the Sepoy Mutiny and dissolution of the Mughal Empire, all private mints were abolished except those of a few privileged states like Nizam and two Government of India Mints in Bombay and Calcutta. In 1903 a new mint was established at Saifabad which came to function as the Royal Mint.

“The coins of Hyderabad Royal Mint were inscribed with the only initial letter of Nizam,” pointed out Rehan Ahamad, the curator of Kolkata Mint Museum whose expertise was sought by the authorities for the exhibits.

In 1895, machinery was first introduced at the mint and new coins known as Charkhi (Wheel) were minted. The minting of Osmani Sickka (after Mir Osman Ali, the VII Nizam) continued in Saifabad Mint, even after the State of Hyderabad joined the Indi- a Union till the middle of the 1950s when these were finally demon used. Under the Government of India, the Saifabad Mint continued to produce coins for the entire country till the mint shifted to Cherlapally in 1997.

Coins Exhibited in Nizam-era Royal Mint building

A numismatist Dr. Ahamad regaled visitors to the museum with tales of the first coins in India and how coins helped scholars to piece together the history of ancient India and how Indologist James Prinsep who worked at the Calcutta Mint deciphered Brahmi and Kharosthi scripts with help of the Greek inscriptions on the other side of the coin.

The coins exhibited included that of the Nizam era, British India, and the Republic of India but it was the replica of the world’s largest and heaviest gold coin issued by Mughal Emperor Jehangir and presented to the father of the first Nizam that evoked the interest of the visitors. Weighing 12kg it was minted in Agra and its denomination was 1000 mohurs.

Klaasen the hero as he powers Proteas to win

Heinrich Klaasen

The Proteas have stressed the point that this team does possess “superstars”, but they do manage to unearth an unlikely hero each time when it’s needed most.

Yesterday in Cuttack it was Heinrich Klaasen’s chance to don the cloak.

The Titans captain had only drafted into the starting line-up due to Quinton de Kock’s injured finger, but he soon cast into the premier role and delivered superbly with 81 off just 46 balls to power the Proteas to victory.

After the Delhi run-feast last Thursday it was the turn of the bowlers to take center stage, with South Africa under pressure at 29/3 within the first powerplay in pursuit of India’s 148/6.

Heinrich Klaasen

Bhuvaneshwar Kumar’s Brilliant Spell

Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4/13) had ripped through the Proteas’ top order with the removal of Reeza Hendricks, Dwaine Pretorius, and Rassie van der Dussen when Klaasen walked to the crease.

With captain Temba Bavuma an assured presence at the other end, the pair combined confidently to change the momentum of the innings with a 64-run partnership off only 41 balls for the fourth wicket.

And when Bavuma (35 off 30 balls) dismissed with 56 runs still required, Klaasen kept coming at India to ensure there would be no late mishaps.

He fully deserved to be there when the winning runs had hit but fell with only four runs required, leaving David Miller (20 not out off 15 balls) to once again provide the finishing touches.

Proteas Bowling Attack

South Africa’s bowling unit, spearheaded by the irrepressible Kagiso Rabada, had earlier restricted the hosts to 148/6.

Rabada charged out of the starting blocks by removing Ruturaj Gaikwad in the first over.

It set the tone for the evening with Bavuma assessing the conditions splendidly with the rotation of his pacemen during the six powerplay overs.

Wayne Parnell handed the new ball at the other end and continued his good form since returning to the Proteas T20 side by offering Rabada solid support.

Although Ishan Kishan threatened to take the attack to the Proteas just as he did at Delhi by attacking the short ball in particular through three sixes and two boundaries The left-hander dismissed for 34 off 21 balls just when his innings were gaining momentum.

The Proteas maintained their stranglehold from that moment on with wickets falling at regular intervals.

Left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj chipped in with the crucial dismissal of India captain Rishabh Pant before Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius and Anrich Nortje all chipped away at the Indian batting unit.

It was not only before Dinesh Karthik and Harshal Patel, at the back end of the innings, found their hitting range that India managed to get on top of the South African bowling with 30 runs coming off the final two overs.

Russia invites India For Business

Describing India-Russia cooperation as “unparalleled”, Russian Ambassador to India Denis Alipov today invited Indian businesses to take advantage of the new opportunities in the Russian mar- ket, especially against the backdrop of withdrawal by many Western companies.

In a message to mark both the 75 years of India’s Independence and the 75th Anniversary of the Russian-Indian diplomatic relations, he noted that all through these years, the two countries have succeeded in building a true friendship and developed mutual trust exemplified by numerous proud milestones. In this connection, he referred to industrialization and power plants construction in India with the Soviet assistance in the 1950-the 1960s, the setting up of the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay in 1958, the groundbreaking Treaty of Peace, Friendship, and Cooperation of 1971, the flight of the first Indian cosmonaut on the “Soyuz T-11” spacecraft in 1984, the Declaration of Strategic Partnership of 2000.

“Today Russia – India multidimensional cooperation is one of the world’s most elaborate ones with regular meetings of the two intergovern- mental commissions, sector-wise ministerial, security advisors and senior officials dialogue, foreign office consultations and coordination in the global arena, complemented by diverse business, cultural and people-to-people contacts. Russia and India were among the first in the world to establish the practice of annual bilateral summits,” Alipov pointed out.

Position of India and Russia on core issues

He said the position of India and Russia on core issues remained similar or coinciding, stressing the need to uphold the central role of the United Nations towards just and equal multipolarity and opposing unilateral and confrontational approaches. “We continue close coordination on the agenda of BRICS as well as the G20 and the SCO, which India will chair in 2022- 2023.” The Russian envoy said Russia and India continue to successfully implement flagship initiatives like the Kudankulam nuclear power plant construction and advanced defense ties with- in the “Make in India” and “Atmanirbhar Bharat” programs such as AK-203 rifles manufacturing, combat aviation, and main battle tanks production as well as frigates, submarines, Brahmos and other missiles projects. The best-of-a-kind S-400 systems delivery was proceeding well according to the schedule, he added.

New opportunities for Indian businesses in the Russian market

With the increased volumes of bilateral trade by more than 45 percent in 2021, this positive trend was supplemented in 2022 by intensified cooperation in energy and fertilizers. Priority has given to the Far Eastern and the Arctic dimensions, implementation of the North-South transport corridor project, and an early conclusion of the FTA between the Eurasian Economic Union and India. Along with ongoing projects in connectivity, diamond processing, forestry, healthcare, and pharma sec tor, tourism, railways, metallurgy, civil aviation, shipbuilding, oil refinery, and petrochemicals, there were plenty of new opportunities for Indian businesses in the Russian market, especially against the backdrop of withdrawal of many Western companies (in the wake of the Russia-Ukraine conflict), Alipov added.

What are the Risks Arise if You Miss the EMI on Loan

EMI on Loan

EMI on Loan: Digital banking has made borrowing so much easier. While it is easy to get funding, repaying it should be your priority. Delays in repaying EMIs can severely affect your financial health. Here we have explained in detail what happens if EMIs are delayed like that.

Penalty:  Delay in EMI for more than one month will result in a penalty of one percent to 2 percent of the minimum or maximum penalty as prescribed by the banks. Banks may charge a higher penalty than normal interest when the EMI is delayed.

Classifying the Account as Inactive Assets: Banks classify EMI defaults into two types: small default and large default. EMI delay of up to 90 days falls under the minor default category, whereas missed three consecutive EMI payments are classified as a large default.

If the principal or interest is not paid within 90 days, the bank may consider your loan as a non-performing asset (NPA) and initiate recovery proceedings against you. Before your loan is marked as NPA, the bank sends you a notice. If you deposit the required amount within the period specified in the notice, you can avoid turning your loan into an NPA.

Credit score vulnerability:  If you miss an EMI, your credit score may drop by about 50 points depending on the type of credit and other factors. Recovering the EMI and taking the right steps can gradually improve your credit score, but your credit score statement may still reflect delays in payment. If your loan is classified as NPA, it could severely affect your credit score.

EMI on Loan

Solution for outstanding loans: Once your loan is declared a non-performing asset, the bank may offer you the option of repaying the entire outstanding amount, including interest and penalties, or you may be forced to repay the loan by waiving interest and penalties. This may seem like a financial comfort to you. But do not forget that they can become a huge black spot in your creditworthiness. Lending banks may not want to give you new loans if your credit report contains details about the settlement.

How do avoid delays in EMI payments?

It is always a good idea to plan ahead to repay your loan to avoid future debt repayments. Instead of allowing your debt to become an NPA, explore options such as eliminating some of your low-income investments. Having a strong emergency fund can be helpful in overcoming such financial problems.

Sometimes the lender may allow some relaxation, such as extending the repayment period and restructuring the loan. Avoid taking on too much debt at once.

Avoid borrowing to repay another loan as it can create huge debt problems. And it can be hard to recover from that. If you have difficulty repaying the EMI, you can try to pay the minimum interest to avoid your loan being classified as an NPA.

What happens if the loan is not repaid,

  • If the EMI has delayed for more than a month, the bank may impose a penalty of 1-2% for the late installment
  • If you miss an EMI, your credit score may be reduced by about 50 points depending on the type of loan and other factors
  • If you are unable to repay the EMI, the loan NPA Pays interest to prevent becoming
  • Try to remove some of your investments to repay the outstanding loan

Medicine for Cancer – Doctor Explained the Benefits of Medicine

Medicine for Cancer

A study of 12 colorectal cancer patients who had taken the same medication for six months found that all of them had ‘disappeared’ cancer. As part of this test, all patients underwent a series of clinical examinations such as physical examination, endoscopy, bioscopy, PET scan, and MRI scan.

After one year of median follow-up, no report showed them any signs of cancer. Rectal cancer, which usually affects the lower part of the colon, can be treated with chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.

All 12 patients who participated in this study received dostarlimab for six months after careful monitoring of clinical response by magnetic resonance imaging, F-fluoroscopic glucose-positron-emission tomography, and endoscopy. Mandeep Singh Malhotra, a doctor in the oncology department at CK Birla Hospital in Delhi, said the test was not about the drug but the paradigm of immunotherapy.

Medicine for Cancer

Why is this test important for cancer research and treatment?

The results of this report are very encouraging, but we will not be able to read more about it until a major test is completed, said Dr. Ashok Kumar White, head of medical and hemato oncology at the Medanta Hospital Cancer Institute in Gurugram. “Once a major test is done, the findings will be validated. However, for now, the results are very good and promising.

It is activated by the body’s immune system. We do not know if it works for cancers other than colorectal cancer because no tests have been done on it, ”he explained.

Emphasizing that this study is promising, Dr. Malhotra noted that it has important to understand that it has been used in patients with high tumor mutation due to colon cancer. He also notes that he uses many ways and means to survive and develop cancer, so a big test would be more appropriate for a bigger understanding.

Do these patients who have received a clinical complete response have a pathological complete remission? It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.

According to Dr. Anil Taqwani, a cancer consultant and senior consultant at the Fortis Noida Vejovis Super Specialty Clinic, this test does not work for all types of cancer. In colorectal cancer, it is only useful for people who have a defective and inadequate repair gene (gene-deficient mismatch repair gene) and are resistant to chemotherapy.

We have to wait a while and follow the patients who participated in this study. We should not be too happy about that, “said Tariq al-Hashimi, the party’s secretary-general. At the same time, he stressed the need to conduct a major test with different types of colorectal cancer patients in the future.
