B.Tech girl student ends life
Bangalore: Two people, including a B.Tech fifth semester student, committed suicide in separate incidents in the city on Monday. The B.Tech student, Kajal Jena (20), who was pursuing her degree at Sir M Visveswaraya Institute of Technology at Krishnadevaraya Nagar near Hunasamaranahalli on Bengaluru International Airport Road, was depressed after failing in the fourth semester exam. She hanged herself at her house in Dwarakanagar in Bagalur police limits on Monday afternoon.
Her father, Amarvilas Jena, who was earlier with the Indian Navy, is working at the aviation safety branch of the BIA. The family that hailed from Odisha is settled in the city for the last several years.
Kajal had a test on Monday, but she did not go to the college and had locked herself in her room. In the afternoon, Kajal’s mother knocked on the door, but she did not open. When her mother looked through the window, she found Kajal hanging from the ceiling fan. 
Kajal has stated in her suicide note that she was committing suicide as she was unable to study and manage the stress, the police said. ‚ÄúShe held no one responsible for her death. Preliminary investigations revealed that she had also failed in some papers of the fourth semester and was very upset over it.¬†These factors might have led her to commit suicide.

Praveen Kumar | DC
Bengaluru:¬†It was sheer desperation that caused this B Tech graduate - twenty-three-year-old Dasari Venkata Chaitanya Kumar ‚ÄĒ who also holds a diploma in the German language, to forge important documents to support his student visa application to Germany.
Kumar, a native of Kadapa in Andhra Pradesh, was reportedly in despair after his two earlier attempts to obtain a visa to Germany to pursue his higher studies failed.
Kumar’s third attempt, however, proved even more unlucky, culminating with his arrest. He wanted to go to Germany by hook or crook; so he submitted manufactured documents to the Consulate General of The Federal Republic of Germany on Residency Road in the city in order to obtain a student visa.
Everything seemed to be going according to plan, when, based on his application, Kumar was called for an interview on Friday. During the interview, however, Kumar got carried away and apparently confessed that the documents submitted were phoney.
He reportedly told his interviewer that since his visa had been cancelled twice before; he did not want a repeat of the incident and hence decided to confess, thinking his visa would still be granted based on his good performance during the B.Tech exams.
From the beginning, Kumar’s plan had been to pursue a Master’s in Germany. This zeal also led him to complete a diploma in the German language. After his graduation from an engineering college in Hyderabad, he applied for a visa at the German Consulate office in Chennai twice and received a reject both times.
This time, he decided to try his luck at the German Consulate office on Residency Road in Bengaluru, revealed one of the officers who arrested the accused. Kumar resorted to submitting counterfeit documents about his workplace and residential address, but his attempt proved unsuccessful as the matter was immediately brought to the notice of the DCP (Central), Ravikanthe Gowda, and the graduate was arrested.
A month ago, Kumar visited his sister and brother-in-law’s house at Bellandur to live with them during his visa application process. Police said his brother-in-law was employed at a software firm on Old Airport Road and used to take the accused to his office regularly.
During one such visit, the accused managed to pilfer a letterhead bearing the name of the software company and created a fake document stating that he worked in the said firm from October last year till the mid-August 2013.
Using a similar manner of deception, Kumar even managed to get the ‚Äėwork experience letter‚Äô stamped with a seal of approval when the concerned person was away from their desk, the officer said.
As part of his elaborate plan, he then took the rent agreement pertaining to his sister’s residence and created a fake stating that he had been staying at the said address for some time. Armed with these bogus papers, Kumar had applied for a student visa at the German Consulate office in Bengaluru.
‚ÄúFollowing his confession that the documents pertaining to his work experience and residential address were false, the German Consulate‚Äôs office informed us. We rushed to the spot and arrested Kumar from the same office,‚ÄĚ the officer added.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
