Child labour SI
 A group of seven teenage girls, who toiled as labourers in brick klins as child labourers in North 24 Parganas district, have stitched up a new life for themselves by going into the tailoring business. "The idea for a tailoring business came to us after we joined a vocational training programme a few months ago," 16-year-old Fazila Khatun, one of the girls, said. Khatun recalled that her life earlier was limited to mixing soil, making mud balls, moulding, carrying heavy wet bricks for drying and finally putting them into the furnace. She was one of the 40 girls of Majlispur, which is notorious for using child labour in brick kilns, who were given basic tailoring skills by an international NGO. After completion of a six-month course, each of them were given sewing machines to begin their lives as entrepreneurs.Another girl, 17-year-old Taslima Khatun, 17, who also slaved in the klins said they began their entrepreneurship by stitching clothes for local people. "This helped us polish our skills. Then we slowly started approaching small manufacturing units. They liked our work and so now they give us regular orders," she said. "Instead of stitching clothes for neighbours we got together and approached a garment manufacturer in Rajarhat who now gives us regular work on contract," Khatun said. They go to manufacturing units in Rajarhat every week to collect orders for about 500-600 pieces of garments. "We then go home with the raw materials provided by them and do the stitching according to the design and shape prescribed," she said. From a monthly earning of around Rs 1000 by working as a 'reza' or one who carries brick to the furnace, her income has now increased to Rs 2500. Adept in stitching all kinds of clothes, they are getting orders for making salwar kameez, frocks and undergarments. Nearly 100,000 children are believed to be working in over 4000 brick kilns in the state. North 24 Parganas district adjoining Kolkata alone is estimated to have around 240 brick kilns.

Larry Page and Sergey Brin

Vision: The whole web at the fingertips

Achievement: Google

Larry’s dream to have the whole web saved on a hard drive pushed the duo of Stanford PhDs to build what is now the greatest search engine in the world.

Google is now one of the most successful tech companies and has produced many products with a goal of changing the face of the world.

 Mark Zuckerberg

Vision: Know what your friends are up to.

Achievement: Facebook

The Harvard drop out had barely any experience in business and hardly any money to start his entrepreneurial venture.

Windows 8 will be challenge for Malware writers

Posted on:
tags: , ,

Microsoft™s security researcher believe that upcoming operating system, Windows 8 is a step forward in security and Windows 8 will be far better at protecting against malware than it’s predecessors.

Chris Valasek, a senior security research scientist at development testing firm Coverity, began examining the security features of Windows 8 last autumn, before the consumer previews of the upcoming revamp of the new Microsoft OS came out.

"There are always going to be vulnerabilities but you can make it difficult to leverage vulnerabilities to write exploits." One major change between Windows 7 and 8 is the addition of more exploit-mitigation technologies, however. Windows Memory Managers (specifically the Windows Heap Manager and Windows Kernel Pool Allocator) are designed to make it far harder for attackers to exploit buffer-overflow vulnerabilities and the like to push malware onto vulnerable systems.

The "security sandbox" for applications for Windows 8 will also be a great step forward. "These new Windows 8 Apps will be contained by a much more restrictive security sandbox, which is a mechanism to prevent programs from performing certain actions," Valasek explains. 

"This new App Container provides the operating system with a way to make more fine-grained decisions on what actions certain applications can perform, instead of relying on the more broad ‘Integrity Levels’ that debuted in Windows Vista/7.

Windows 8 also comes with a new version of Internet Explorer, Microsoft's browser software. Internet Explorer 10 will come with a mode that disables support for third-party plug-ins such as Flash and Java.

Infosys, TCS, Wipro Created 2 Million Jobs in FY 2011-12

Posted on:
tags: , ,

The resilient Indian IT industry has shared the grave concerns expressed by Infosys' chairman emeritus N R Narayana Murthy and Wipro chairman Azim Premji on policy paralysis in the UPA government holding up reforms and growth.

"Our concerns are no different from what Murthy and Premji have expressed. Key policy issues and executive decisions pertaining to our industry have been pending for long. They require urgent attention of the government if we have to remain competitive in a challenging environment," Som Mittal, president of the National Association of Software and Services Companies ( Nasscom), told IANS.

Along with IT bellwethers Tata Consultancy Services ( TCS), Infosys and Wipro, the $100-billion Indian software and services industry contributed significantly to the Indian economic growth story, creating over two million direct jobs and accounting for 25 per cent of the country's merchandise exports, generating $69 billion in fiscal 2011-12.

Alarmed over the failure of the federal government on many fronts and its prevarication over taking tough or quick decisions to revive growth, Murthy was quoted recently as saying that he was saddened by the state of the Indian economy and the crisis of confidence gripping the country due to lack of "big ticket" reforms since 2004.

"There was a huge expectation on the introduction of many reforms by the (UPA) government. There was a lot of confidence that India would do whatever was necessary because the person ( Manmohan Singh) who was the face of economic reforms in 1991 is our current prime minister," Murthy told global financial services firm Morgan Stanley recently.

Echoing Murthy, Premji lamented how policy paralysis was hurting investor sentiment. "We are working without a leader as a country," Premji was quoted as saying at his company's meeting with analysts in Mumbai.

Murthy, who co-founded the $7-billion global software major in the 1980s, observed that the government decision to apply tax laws retrospectively had sent a wrong signal to overseas firms on investing or doing business in India.

"The government would have to take steps to do something very positive. It should indicate that it means business, and foreign investors are welcome. This has to happen in FDI (foreign direct investment) because portfolio investments are fickle," Morgan Stanley quoted Murthy saying in its research report.

Endorsing the views of Murthy and Premji, Mittal said that policy paralysis and lack of reforms were hurting even the IT industry as the government had, for instance, not yet resolved the transfer price issue or introduced the safe harbour provision for past and current claims.

"Given the widening current account deficit, we also need the government to take pro-active measures to boost exports and give incentives to promote entrepreneurship in innovative product firms. Providing basic and social infrastructure, especially in tier-two and tier-three towns is another area where the government initiative is wanting," Mittal asserted.

As a former chief executive of HP India Ltd. and an IT services expert with Wipro earlier, Mittal expressed concern over the lack of government support to small and medium enterprises (SMEs) after tax holidays were withdrawn to the industry since 2011.

"Though Special Economic Zones (SEZs) were announced with much fanfare in place of the Software Technology Parks of India ( STPI) for the industry, Minimum Alternative Tax ( MAT) on SEZ income discourages firms from opting for the scheme," Mittal said.

Sharing the industry's concerns, former Infosys director and Manipal Global Education Services chairman T V Mohandas Pai regretted that the UPA government had been simply watching the deterioration of economic activity during the past six months.
