TV” said Pehredaar Piya Ki producers Related News The controversy surrounding Sony Entertainment Television’s Pehredaar Piya Ki seems to be growing by the day What started as personal social media posts has become a nationwide issue today With petitions filed against the show to I&B Minister Smriti Irani and the case now said to have reached the desk of BCCC (Broadcasting Content Complaints Council) the producers of the show Shashi and Sumeet Mittal decided to address the media on Monday The makers who have shows like Punar Vivah Diya Aur Baati Hum and Tu Sooraj Main Saanjh Piya Ji under their credit seemed quite confident and assured media that they will never project anything anti-social in their show They gave their justification on the fact that a 10-year-old boy Ratan is married to an 18-year-old girl Diya in Pehredaar Piya Ki In the conference they also spoke about accusations levied against them regarding infiltrating children and also on how the controversy has actually made their show more popular The conference started with a journalist asking the producers whether Karan Wahi going public about his disapproval caused more people to take notice Stating that they have never worked with him or have any enmity the producers quipped “Well Karan was not even in town when our show launched and we don’t know why he posted such comments We will be sending a letter to him asking what did he find wrong in our show It’s always good to get some feedback We are part of the same industry and these posts were not needed We also feel social media aggravated the matter it’s a clear case of a mountain being made out of a mole” The producers were further asked whether such innocent kids exist in real life compared to what they claim Ratan to be in their show Defending their stand on whether it would have a wrong effect on growing minds they said “We have a nine year old daughter and she is as innocent as Ratan I think it all depends on the environment a child is brought up that determines their personality The kids today are used to terms like ‘honeymoon’ and ‘suhaag raat’ they might know its meaning but these words come up in any family To make it an issue was wrong on people’s side The behavior is as normal as any child For everything abnormal there is an absolute clarity being given by our side The girl stands up against the suhaag raat celebration and rebukes her family to have insulted her relationship” More than a lakh people have signed the petition against the show demanding its ban Saying that it’s unjustified the producers quipped “Most of the people who are signing the petition have no clue about the show They proudly claim they don’t watch TV When you haven’t seen the show how can you judge it We have not shown anything objectionable As traditional people ourselves we know our boundaries There is a sweet platonic relationship between the boy and girl and that nowhere is against the society” “We have indeed clarified the reason of this marriage in our show The boy’s dying father requests the girl to marry her for he feels she alone can protect her As a wife she will have complete right over him and the household and so he asks her to marry his son He also tells the family that once the boy is 21 years they should have a legal marriage” the makers said on asked why a marriage was necessary between the lead actors Talking about whether negative publicity helped the show they said “The ratings that we have got till now have been only for our content When it goes up thrashing the roof only then we will believe that the controversy has worked for us As of now we will stick to our plot and continue with the same storyline Only the audience can make us alter it but for now they are really happy with the show The fans have even started a petition in support of our show and it’s getting quite a positive feedback A lot of industry people are also backing us and we get messages from a lot of people who feel our show is a wonderful one ” Last time when indianexpresscom had spoken to Sumeet he had confidently said that he was enjoying the entire backlash that was coming his way in terms of his show Now that the matter is said to have reached BCCC we asked him how he is taking things “Abhi thoda zyada hogaya (laughs) The backlash was indeed enjoyable and I am still game for it but there should be a justified reason for the same You can’t blindly put our show down without even seeing it I have no problems with petitions but you can’t decide to ban a show unnecessarily We have been righteous and will continue to tread a lawful path Let’s see what comes ahead We believe in our product and are ready to fight for it and put our point across BCCC” Pehredaar Piya Ki stars Tejasswi

concerns at the United Nations over the latest North Korean missile tests carried out in violation of Security Council resolutions US Strategic Command said it detected and tracked three North Korean missile launches at 844 pm 858 pm and 935 pm just over a week after Pyongyang issued threats to respond to the planned deployment of a US anti-missile system in South Korea United Nations Reuters "The near back-to-back launch of two presumed Scud tactical ballistic missiles followed by the presumed launch of a No Dong intermediate range ballistic missile approximately an hour later occurred near Hwangju" it said The North American Aerospace Defense Command however "determined the missile launches from North Korea did not pose a threat to North America" the Stratcom statement added The UN Security Council has slapped a series of sanctions against the hermit state that ban the North from conducting ballistic missile tests "We strongly condemn this and North Korea’s other recent missile tests which violate UN Security Council Resolutions explicitly prohibiting North Korea’s launches using ballistic missile technology" said Commander Gary Ross a Pentagon spokesman "We intend to raise our concerns at the UN to bolster international resolve in holding the DPRK accountable for these provocative actions" Stratcom said it joined other key US commands in remaining "vigilant in the face of North Korean provocations" Ross voiced renewed US support in defending its allies in the region against North Korean threats "Our commitment to the defense of our allies including the Republic of Korea and Japan in the face of these threats remains ironclad We remain prepared to defend ourselves and our allies from any attack or provocation" he said "We call on North Korea to refrain from actions that further raise tensions in the region and focus instead on taking concrete steps toward fulfilling its commitments and international obligations" The sophisticated US anti-missile defense system to counter the growing menace from Pyongyang known as the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system or THAAD will be deployed in Seongju county by the end of next year Both South Korean and US troops stationed in the South also have Patriot anti-air defense systems that can intercept enemy missiles at low altitudes Fairbanks: When ministers from the eight states of the Arctic and representatives of the region’s native peoples met last month in Alaska evidence of global warming was all around them Locals all had stories to tell from the appearance of new ticks that came from the south to the boreal forest to the subsidence caused by thawing permafrost toppling trees and undermining house foundations But if delegates to the Arctic Council had hoped for reassurance from their host US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that his government would tackle the issue they were disappointed On Thursday they found out why Tillerson had refused to re-commit to the terms of Paris climate accord: President Donald Trump was about to pull the United States out of the deal altogether In hindsight the low-key gathering of foreign ministers and indigenous groups prefigured the later high drama in Washington The United States was going it alone to the dismay of would-be friends and partners Passing the baton to Finland after the two-year US presidency of the council Tillerson warned delegates that Trump was already reviewing how to "approach the issue of climate change" In Alaska —and in the circle of territories around the Pole in Canada Russia and Scandinavia —climate change is not an abstract policy matter as delegates to the council attempted to persuade their host "We are connected to the land It is who we are" said Bill Erasmus an envoy from the Arctic Athabaskan Council which represents a native Arctic people living on lands that span the Alaska-Canada border "Climate change in the Arctic is not just an environmental issue It is a matter of culture and our rights to exist as indigenous peoples" he said Representational image Reuters Extreme weather The Athabaskan rep was joined at the council in Fairbanks by representatives from other indigenous groups from as far away as Finland and Russia —and all told a similar story of a way of life under threat O Patricia Lekanoff-Gregory was sent by the Aleut International Association to talk for a people that live and fish on both sides of the frigid churning waters of the Bering Sea in Russia and the United States "We the Aleut people are resilient and adaptable We have survived many hardships brought about by contact with the outside world" she told the meeting complaining of ocean acidification and rising temperatures Global warming has altered species migration routes and triggered extreme weather events that threaten the Aleuts’ salmon fishing she said just as subsistence hunters from inland peoples are running out of prey "All of these things are real and they are happening right now" she said She implored delegates not to "let politics interfere with the actions that must happen now and in the future" Events like the council draw experts and community leaders from around the broader region to share ideas and steps that can be taken to adapt to life in a warming Arctic For example just outside Fairbanks on a farm operated by the University of Alaska professor Greg Finstad and his team are raising an experimental herd of reindeer with a view to building a new commercial meat industry Reindeer farming Reindeer have long been farmed in Russia and Finland and were brought from Siberia to coastal Alaska by Russian whalers Inland hunters are more used to seeing wild caribou whose stocks have dwindled Finstad is proud of the meat as a product —some is already added to pork and beef to make sausages popular in local restaurants — and hopes local communities will turn to farmed reindeer as a source of protein and cash The US beef industry is wary of competition however and politics and bureaucracy make it hard for him to get his hands on the detailed research into large-scale reindeer farming carried out by the former Soviet Union Such small and medium-scale initiatives may help communities adapt to the march of climate change in frontline communities like rural Alaska but local leaders had hoped for global help in slowing rising temperatures The two-year US chairmanship of the Arctic Council began under the former secretary of state John Kerry a passionate supporter of environmental causes who signed the Paris accord on behalf of the United States It ended under Tillerson the former chief executive ExxonMobil the firm that operated the Exxon Valdez supertanker which ran aground in Alaskan waters in 1989 and spilled a quarter of a million barrels of crude The oilman acknowledged the other delegates’ keen interest in seeing the Paris accord fully implemented but he warned: Trump would always put what he called "American interests" first "We are appreciative that each of you has an important point of view and you should know that we are taking the time to understand your concerns" he said Three weeks later it was clear that those concerns had not been heard Editor’s note: This is an open letter written to the Minister of Youth Services and Sports?
