With an eye towards rooting out corruption at all levels, the Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala announced today that the Kerala Police would seek help from the people.This will be a first initiative of its kind.

In the wake of project “Vigilant Kerala, Say No to Corruption”, launched on a pilot basis in 52 states in September last year, becoming increasingly effective, the Kerala government has decided to extend it across the state.

The Home Minister, while addressing reporters along with senior officials of the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau said that in most cases, corruption was detected after everything was over but through this new initiative it would be nipped in the bud.

“What we have done is to set up several layers of committees. The grassroots ones would include the common man. The higher committees would include experts in fighting corruption, officials from the state government, vigilance officials, department heads and the highest body would comprise top vigilance officials,” said Chennithala.

Director General of Police (VACB) Vinson M. Paul said, “If anyone finds that a particular civil work is not going as per the desired level of performance, it would be brought to the attention of various committees and immediate action would be taken.”

These committees would look into complaints from the people over the functioning of all government offices, police stations and civil development works.

According to the Director General of Police, the maximum time for resolving an issue is 90 days. Moreover, if the lower committees are unable to resolve the issue, it would be taken up at the highest level.

The website www.vigilantkerala.in. has been provided for the people so that they can report cases of corruption by registering on it.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:

What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
