firms with sizeable forex exposures continue to display an almost stubborn reluctance to hedge their foreign exchange risks One reason is that companiesespecially mid-level private firmsdo not want to lose out to competition in the future because their portfolios are aggressively hedged or miss out on the opportunity of locking in profits on their foreign exchange exposuressomething that is particularly true of companies dealing with commodities and those in the IT/ITeS sectors Apart from the fact that hedging requires expertiseit is also expensive and the advantage of the dollar loan is gone if companies cover their exposure to the greenback For state-owned firmsthoughits a different dilemma altogether Public sector companiesespecially those in the petroleum sector that need to make purchases of oil in dollars and are therefore particularly vulnerablehave a large portion of foreign currency exposure unhedged State-owned power and steel companies that have raised substantial amounts from the foreign markets in the form of ECBs too have enough unhedged forex exposures to give a private sector CFO sleepless nights But for the finance head of a public sector firmit goes beyond the predicament of deciding between how much to hedge and for what tenor For most PSU finance chiefsthe bigger worry is not how to insulate the companys financials on account of unhedged forex exposurebut of a hedge potentially going wrongwhich could invariably result in an audit crackdown by the CAG For these finance professionals in state-owned firmsthereforeinaction on this count is a better bet than going in for a foreign exchange hedge that could turn counterproductive This is especially worrying at a time when there has been a sizeable rise in ECBs and rupee-denominated non-resident Indian deposits Short-term debtson residual maturity basis are estimated to have surged by about $25 billion in just 2012-13 Adding to the worries is that fact that the quantum of ECBs due for repayment this year is estimated at around $9 billion while companies would need to pay around $11 billion next year Tall orderindeed Anil is a senior editor based in New Delhi

losing streak (Source: PTI) Related News The term ‘Spirit of Mumbai’ has been doing the rounds a lot over the past two days Loud tickers of news channels and hashtag strewn fields of social media told stories of people offering food and shelter to complete strangers The only connection between the hosts and the unlikely guests are that they both have been affected by the deluge Almost every year rains bring the city to a screeching halt and the residents of the city exhibit this Spirit of Mumbai by first helping out their fellow Mumbaikars and then going to work the very next day as if nothing happened In a way U Mumba channeled that Spirit in their match against Haryana Steelers on Wednesday They came into the match with three consecutive defeats at home hanging over their heads and emerged with a 38-32 win For a team that represents probably the only city in the country that truly never sleeps and seldom stops U Mumba have looked prone to caving this season They haven’t made too many mistakes in the three matches that they lost What is apparent is that they somehow lost grip over these matches in the dying minutes Against Haryana it intialy looked like it might be the same story U Mumba got off to a good start as they had in the last three matches They then started caving towards the end of the first half and the slide continued in the early stages of the second half as has been the case in the last three matches What happened after that was the difference between the U Mumba of those three matches and the U Mumba that faced Haryana Steelers Moreover the Mumbai crowd as Haryana coach Rambri Singh Khokhar would admit after the match had an effect on the Steelers in the period when both teams were going neck to neck It was an understandably depleted audience that came but the noise levels in the stadium was not too many bars below what is the usual Apart from all that U Mumba captain Anup Kumar stated that there was also some help from the opposition on the day “I saw during the warm-up” said Kumar during the post-match press conference “That Haryana players were a little overconfident It looked like they were taking it easy because they had won their last two matches while we have been losing So our strategy was to go all out from the word go” That did look to be the case in the first half Haryana Steelers were the side that made the first raid and U Mumba were able to get a tackle on far too easily They could not find much success in attacks in the early minutes but Haryana were being tackled left right and centre in that period Such was Mumbai’s dominance that the Steelers were down to two men even before the end of the first 10 minutes They would have been all out at that point had it not been for Vikas Kandola Kandola managed to gain points out of consecutive raids But he had little support as the Steelers kept giving away points at the other end Kandola saved the Steelers three times before finally cracking and the Steelers were all out for the first time Haryana then started to step up and because of that U Mumba starte the second half with just three men Deepak Kumar Dahiya’s Super Raid then brought them down to one and U Mumba were soon all out The score at that point was 25-22 in Mumbai’s favour Kandola then sustained an injury during a raid because of which he had to be stretchered out Despite losing their best raider Haryana kept at it and soon levelled the proceedings For the next four minutes the two teams were going neck to neck What has been seen so far in Mumbai is that U Mumba fall behind after conceding a two point raid a Super Tackle or something of that measure to go on and lose the match But this time they turned the tables A two-point gap finally emerged between the two sides when Mumbai managed a Super Tackle “That was a turning point” said the Haryana coach “Until that point we were able to some pressure on them But after that that pressure built on us” Mumbai soon increased that margin to five points and then added one more Anup Kumar then ensured in his raids that they eat up as much time as possible He did the same in the last 20 seconds He waited at the mid line looking at the clock and stealing glances at the opposition defenders He had got a knock on his head a few minutes back and that had him flinching a little as he stood there Finally he decided it was time and went back to his side of the mat The official called for an end to the match and Kumar bent down touched the mat and then his forehead U Mumba braved the storm and came out as victors For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsWritten by Shantanu David | Published: February 18 2015 12:00 am Mutton Dhan Sak at

introduced Delhi to Parsi food Restaurateur and owner AD Singh says “We were going for an eclectic mix of Parsi and Irani dishes overlapping with Bombay’s street food In the process we brought Parsi food onto Delhi’s plate” And while the cuisine had been present in the Capital under the aegis of the legendary Mrs Dhun Bagli at the Parsi Anjuman for years it had never really been on the food map of the city’s hoi polloi Soda with its sumptuously eccentric interiors a bakery corner that rolled out fresh cookies and naan khatai daily suddenly made Patra Ni Machchi (pomfret steamed in banana leaves) and Saali Boti (meat curry with potato matchsticks or ‘sali’) du jour in Delhi’s dining lexicon The restaurant has two branches one in Delhi and Gurgaon each and will soon open in Noida Hyderabad and Bangalore Something is clearly clicking “Like with every other regional or community cuisine Indians are now curious to see food that is being made within the country’s borders” says Chef Manu Chandra of Monkey Bar explaining the sudden spike of popularity the cuisine is enjoying His restaurant has a few Parsi dishes on its menu including the Berry Pulao and The Parsee Orderlies’ Mutton Curry “As far as its appeal Parsi ticks off multiple checkpoints be it in its taste presentation or health Also it uses ingredients and cooking techniques that aren’t very common in our food repertoire” he says Share This Article Related Article Rahul Dua who runs the much-vaunted Cafe Lota agrees He recalls the first time he had a Parsi meal at a friend’s house about five years ago “It was different from the usual yet there was something so comforting about it I could eat it every single day” says Dua That Parsi dishes extensively use meat and seafood was another big pull So enamoured was Dua with the cuisine that he toyed with the idea of introducing home-style Parsi food in a restaurant format “I thought people need to be eating this food” which he achieved recently by opening Rustom’s Parsi Bhonu at Adchini with his girlfriend Kainaz Contractor whose family was the inspiration and source of recipes Parsi food is characterised by a mixed palate of largely sweet sour and spicy using culinary techniques such as steaming and baking apart from the usual frying and broiling so common to most Indian foods These recipes while seemingly simple require certain ingredients which aren’t readily available in the city as well as a certain familiarity of context As Dua says “I don’t think it would be possible to run a Parsi restaurant without having a Parsi chef or at least someone who is completely at home in a Parsi kitchen Kainaz runs the roost at Rustom’s” At Soda this job is done by Chef Anahita Dhondy who has witnessed the Parsi revolution as it were first-hand “A few years ago I was training at the Taj Mahal Hotel Mansingh Road when Ratan Tata came in and asked for Paatra Ni Macchi The chefs were sort of stumbling around because no one was familiar with Parsi cuisine Today apart from stand-alones even the big hotels such as Taj and Oberoi have Saali Boti and Dhan Sak on their menus and buffet spreads” says Dhondy who has made Tata’s macchi a staple in her own Parsi household The ingredients used include Sambhar masala (no not that kind) Dhana-Jeeru masala and a barrel matured sugar-cane vinegar (manufactured almost exclusively by E F Kolah & Sons of Navsari since 1885) which is what imparts the characteristic tang to many Parsi dishes “Sambhar is in its most basic form is a chilli and garlic powder while dhana-jeeru is something like garam masala You’ll find these in every Parsi household with each family with their own variant Mixed together they’re used to make Dhan Sak masala” says Dhondy “There’ll be one aunty in Crawford market making one paste and another one in Grant Road making some other thing” These ingredients are only available in Gujarat and Maharashtra the last bastions of the community Similarly Dua and Contractor used the latter’s family’s recipes practically heirlooms to create a menu for Rustom’s that offers dishes little-known even to the gourmand (not to mention getting a regular supply of the Pallonji’s Raspberry Soda so beloved of the community) “We wanted to serve stuff that hadn’t been done before Even people who’ve eaten a lot of Parsi food on their travels tell us they’ve never heard of stuff like Dhan Dar Patio (a treasured trinity of rice yellow dal and a spicy curry of usually prawns or vegetables) but they love it” says Dua who perhaps sums it up best “It’s like at some point in your life you were meant to eat this food” For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsIn the musical chairs game of loyalty and betrayal that is playing out in the AIADMK RB Udhayakumar’s character or the lack of it will stand out In January as the leader of the Amma Peravai (Jayalalithaa Federation) within the AIADMK he was the first to demand that O Panneerselvam be replaced as chief minister by VK Sasikala OPS was so upset with Udhayakumar that he even complained bitterly to Sasikala about it then But a lot of polluted water has flown in the Cooum since then On Wednesday revenue minister Udhayakumar has metamorphosed into an Edappadi Palaniswami supporter who has no issues with OPS making a homecoming while Sasikala is sought to be sidelined So in the shifting sands of the AIADMK churn TTV Dhinakaran has now sacked Udhayakumar Sources say Udhayakumar was also suspected of trying to sabotage Dhinakaran’s Melur public meeting near Madurai last week Udhayakumar isn’t the only one It is a pink slip season in the AIADMK with Dhinakaran sacking all those seen as betraying his aunt Among them Rajya Sabha MP R Vaithialingam who announced on Monday that Sasikala will be expelled soon Vaithialingam’s utterances are seen as high treason because after he lost the assembly election last May Sasikala reportedly played a critical part in pushing his case with Jayalalithaa to send him to Parliament in June But removing leaders from party positions is only an act of false bravado by Dhinakaran given that his rivals have already declared his appointment null and void Both factions —the AIADMK (Ruling) and AIADMK (Sasikala) —are busy scoring goals without realising that the AIADMK as an entity is scoring several self-goals After the merger of the OPS and EPS factions on Monday Dhinakaran fired the first salvo when he got 19 of his camp MLAs to convey to the Governor Vidyasagar Rao that they do not have any confidence in EPS as chief minister It is clear that Sasikala who gave EPS the top job on a platter in February feels the pain of the knife in her back and wants to show him the door A file image of TTV Dhinakaran Getty Image Plan A then is to create a wedge in the ruling camp by offering the chief minister’s post to another leader Dhinakaran campers suggested that KA Sengottaiyan education minister and a leader senior to EPS in the AIADMK take over as the chief minister VK Dhivakaran Sasikala’s brother thought Assembly speaker P Dhanapal would be an apt choice There is an element of caste politics also playing out as Sengottaiyan is a Gounder like EPS and would continue to command the community backing while Dhanapal is a Dalit The family is banking on the support of 30 Dalit legislators of the AIADMK by rooting for Dhanapal Plan B is to put pressure on the governor Giving in 19 identical letters to Raj Bhavan was to tell the world that EPS regime is in a minority The DMK also has asked the Governor to take cognisance of the situation The Congress has asked Vidyasagar Rao to make EPS prove his majority on the floor of the Tamil Nadu Assembly Plan C will kick in if EPS proceeds on the decision to oust Sasikala Sources say at least ten ruling camp MLAs including three ministers will raise the banner of revolt should that happen They are perhaps the MLAs who Dhinakaran has referred to as his "sleeper cells" EPS himself will be circumspect about acting against Sasikala knowing it could well cost him his chair Plan D will be enforced if Plan A flops and the Governor asks EPS to show numbers Dhinakaran will have to manoeuvre his way through the anti-defection law to ensure that his camp MLAs do not get disqualified Which is where the Sasikala clan would hope softening Dhanapal with the lure of the chief minister’s post would make him take a more lenient position But would it be so easy for the AIADMK legislators for years fed on an anti-DMK position to join hands with MK Stalin to bring down a government that was formed by Jayalalithaa Perhaps not which is why this will be Dhinakaran’s last resort At the same time he realises the urgency to capture the party structure so that he can edge out EPS and OPS in the long run However what the ruling camp enjoys is the Centre’s backing and that worries the Dhinakaran camp as well Sasikala’s nephew continues to be under a cloud in a FERA case and many in Tamil Nadu’s political system wonder if he will soon get a knock on the door from a vigilance team Since resort politics is the new normal Dhinakaran has moved his MLAs to the Windflower resort in Puducherry to keep them safe from poaching Reports indicate that the EPS camp would try to woo at least half a dozen of them besides also trying to split the eight member Congress legislature party Talk of political survival and furious headcount dominate the discourse in the AIADMK government with little care for matters of governance making it a case of present tense for

official Xinhua news agency quoted a policeman as saying "She looked in her thirties and was different from the photos we had" The woman identified as Zhu Najuan also confessed to using other people’s identity cards to travel across the country by train She financed her plastic surgery using borrowed bank cards Xinhua said late on Friday Representatives from more than 300 Chinese cities released a
