“Nehru wanted R.C.Majumdar to write a book titled History of Freedom of India. There was an attempt to distort the history through this book. Following this, Majumdar refused to write the book stating that a historical book must be based on research. Nehru then got Taranath to write the book,” revealed S.L. Bhyrappa according to a report published in “Kannada Prabha,” a Kannada daily.
S.L. Bhyrappa is a popular Kannada novelist who has written more than 20 novels including two historical novels “Saartha” and “Aavarana,” an autobiography and a few essays on philosophy. Last Saturday evening, while speaking at the inauguration function of “Mathana” organized by Kuvempu Cultural Education Trust, Chikamagaluru, Karnataka, Bhyrappa also stated that Nehru was a committed communist. These revelations are bound to create controversy again.
Previously, Bhyrappa was in controversy over his book “Aavarana” that reveals the extent of damage caused by the invasion of India by Islamic rulers. The book gives detailed historical references for various facts and figures cited in the book. This had created huge controversy.
While speaking about the Swadeshi Movement, Bhyrappa attributed its rise to the message of Ahimsa given by Swami Vivekananda in Bengal around 1890. He further stated that without Subhas Chandra Bose, India would not have attained Independence. Speaking about the difference between Western Philosophy and Indian Philosophy, Bhyrappa pointed out that, while the Western philosophy revealed truths about outside world and laid stress on rational thought, the Indian Philosophy is rooted in Vedas and dwells deep into human life, its problems and its secrets. Though common people cannot understand Vedas, the message of Vedas has reached everyone through Ramayana and Mahabharata.
"It can be tempting for organisations to see phishing attacks as a relatively low-level threat, but that underestimates their power. Phishing is often the first step in a complex, multi-stage attack. According to Sophos Rapid Response, attackers frequently use phishing emails to trick users into installing malware or sharing credentials that provide access to the corporate network," Sophos' Principal Research Scientist, Chester Wisniewski said in a statement. The findings also reveal that there is a lack of common understanding about the definition of phishing. For instance, 67 per cent of IT teams in India associate phishing with emails that falsely claim to be from a legitimate organisation, and which are usually combined with a threat or request for information.
Four-fifths of Indian organisations assess the impact of their awareness programme through the number of phishing-related tickets raised with IT, followed by the level of reporting of phishing emails by users (77 per cent) and click rates on phishing emails (60 per cent). All the organisations surveyed (100 per cent) in Delhi, Hyderabad, and Kolkata say they have a cybersecurity awareness programme in place. This was followed by Chennai where 97 per cent have such programmes, and then, Bengaluru and Mumbai at 96 per cent each. (IANS/ MBI)

Former cricketers have questioned the timing of Virat Kohli's announcement that he will step down as Royal Challengers Bangalore captain at the end of the IPL 2021 season, saying "if you want to do that, you probably do it after the tournament". Three days back, Kohli had also dropped a bombshell -- just a month before the ICC World T20 to begin -- that he will stand down from Team India T20 captaincy after the mega sporting spectacle in UAE and Oman.
On Sunday night, he shared the news on Twitter - just hours before their first game in the resumed IPL 2021 on Monday -- that he will quit RCB captaincy as well. The timings of both the announcements have left the former cricketers a bit "surprised". They believe that Kohli has "unsettled" his RCB side.

The match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the United Arab Emirates will be'Kohli's 200th for Bangalore. Former India opener Gautam Gambhir said Kohli's timing had surprised him and would not help Bangalore's quest for a first IPL title. "If you want to do that, you probably do it after the tourn"ment," Gambhir said on Star Sp"rts. "Because it makes the team unsettled and emotional as well." Whereas, former batsman Sanjay Manjrekar said, "I am just curious about both the announcements as to why he had to do it before the tournaments," Manjrekar was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.
Kohli was made Bangalore's captain in 2013, but despite his superstar status, the team's best finish was losing in 2016 final. Kohli insisted his decision had been "well thought (out) and in the best interest of this wonderful franchise". (IANS/ MBI)
