Initially, the Aqua Line (Metro Line 3) was scheduled to start operations in May, but it got delayed due to several factors. Research Designs and Standards Organisation (RDSO) successfully completed the trials of rolling stock for the underground Mumbai Metro Line 3. Heavy load tests have been conducted on the Metro trains to ensure safe operations. "Gunny bags of debris" were loaded onto the trains to mimic passenger loads during these experiments between BKC and Aarey. Before the 'loaded' trials, similar tests had been performed with empty trains. These trials were successful with trains running at a speed of 95 km/hr. The Metro Line 3 project is funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), and the total project cost, revised to Rs 37,276 crore as approved by the Union government in February this year, includes a JICA loan of Rs 21,280 crore. The metro line 3 will span over six major corporate and business hubs: Nariman Point, Cuffe Parade, Fort, Lower Parel, BKC, and SEEPZ/MIDC. Additionally, it will provide access to over thirty educational institutions, thirteen hospitals, thirty recreational facilities, and over fourteen religious sites. Importantly, it will improve connectivity to underserved areas like Kalbadevi, Girgaon, and Worli. As the MyGovInida post on X read, it will have 27 stops, which include Cuffe Parade, Vidhan Bhavan, Churchgate, Hutatma Chowk, CSMT, Kalbadevi, Girgaon, Grant Road, Mumbai Central, Mahalaxmi, Science Museum, Acharya Atre Chowk, Worli, Siddhivinayak, Dadar, Shitladevi, Dharavi, Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC), Vidyanagri, Santa Cruz, CSIA Terminal 1 (Domestic Airport), Sahar Road, CSIA Terminal 2 (International Airport), Marol Naka, MIDC, SEEPZ, and Aarey Colony (the only at-grade station).

Kiran Bedi stressed the empowerment aspect. Pic/Aditi Haralkar

Shatter the Silence

Social activist she is now, but just her presence still makes one want to snap a salute to Dr Kiran Bedi, who was in Mumbai to unveil a flashlight with a safety alarm. This is a torch made with an eye on the safety and security of women and other vulnerable people. The Eveready siren torch, dazzling bright during the demonstration launch, has a siren which will wail when put on by the person carrying it and is an immediate attention getter. The noise resonated through the venue when Bedi pressed a button on the flashlight, as it was formally launched at an Andheri East hotel on Tuesday. Shatter silence The one strong message behind the device is: break or shatter the silence, and hence the siren. When in distress, danger or during any emergency in fact, the compact torch can be put on by the person who must carry it in an accessible easy to reach place, like hanging it on your bag, so that one does not have to look for it feverishly in an emergency. The flashlight emits a 100-decibel loud alarm while flashing, when its attached key chain is pulled. This draws the attention of passers-by. It is meant to act as both deterrent for would be danger and a shrill, easy to hear cry for help. More hands Bedi, who has so many firsts to her name, including first woman IPS officer, said that this torch will, “enhance the confidence level of women. You have actually empowered a woman who is feeling scared and wants help. This siren will go a long way, I wish it reaches more and more hands,” said Bedi cutting a dapper figure in her salwar-kurta, jacket and shoes. Her statement, “this is a weapon, a non-violent weapon of another kind,” was cheered. Bedi highlighted that even schoolgirls returning from evening school, perhaps, when the sun is setting can use the device. “When you enhance a woman’s physical safety, it means better mental health too.”  Doc talk Bedi touched upon her two foundations Navjyoti India Foundation and India Vision Foundation, working towards women empowerment, in which the girls and women would benefit from this product. She also suggested that the torch should have a little strap, so that people can hang it, “and they are hands free. We can also consider giving them as gifts for Diwali or Women’s Day,” said Bedi. She had the audience laughing when she said, “My first experience with a torch was when I went to see a doctor, as a child. The doctor said: open your mouth and shone the torch. Maybe at some time, you could bring in a doctor's torch, where when the doctor asks a patient to open their mouth, what he sees can be documented and analysed. The torch has a memory. Maybe, that can be yet another torch innovation using Artificial Intelligence (AI).” For this #AwaazUthaneyKaPower campaign, Eveready collaborated with India Signing Hands, an organisation dedicated to providing solutions to “accessibility” issues faced by the deaf community. Dignified life Eveready honchos said people will now see a blitz of awareness about the flashlight on which the #AwaazUthaneyKaPower campaign has been built. The compact siren torch with charger costs R225 and will be made widely available across as accessibility is vital, they stressed. The curtain fell on a thought provoking late morning which could be summed up as: giving dignity, power, agency and a voice to those who are voiceless, both literally and figuratively.

Students at Saraswati Vidya Mandir

Mumbai: Saraswati Vidaya Mandir School in Mahim West celebrates 75 years

The school has received numerous awards, including the Best School (2019-20), Clean School (2022), and the Karveer Bhaurao Patil Award. Initially offering education only in Marathi, the school gradually introduced English and semi-English as the medium of instruction to accommodate its growing student population. Today, Saraswati Mandir High School boasts a five-storey building constructed in 2007. “The school is well-equipped with facilities such as laboratories, libraries, computer labs, and digital learning aids. These resources ensure that students receive a well-rounded education,” said a school authority. The school’s playground has over the years become a cradle for sports talent, helping the school earn numerous accolades, including the prestigious Hind Karandak and the Rani Lakshmibai Award. Pooja Surve, who leads the Indian gymnastics team, began her journey on this very ground. National-level gymnasts like Poonam Surve and Juilee Prabhu also honed their skills here.  The school management committee has invited alumni to reconnect and be part of the celebrations, urging them to reach out via the website smhsmahim.edu.in, email smhs_mahim@yahoo.co.in, or WhatsApp at 93722 95817.
