Kajin Sara in Nepal to Be Named as World's Highest Lake August 10, 2019 17:29

Nepal has newly discovered Kajin Sara lake in Manang district and it is soon all set to turn out to the world’s highest lake replacing Tilicho lake (also in Manang), which currently holds the title. According to a report by Himalayan Times, the lake is situated at a height of 5,200 meters at Singarkharka in Chame Rural Municipality of Manang.According to Chame Rural Municipality Chair Lokendra Ghale, the lake was discovered about a few months ago by a team of mountaineers. "As per the measurement of the lake by the team, it is located at an altitude of 5,200 meters, which is yet to be officially verified. It's estimated to be 1,500 meters long and 600 meters wide," said Ghale. "The lake would be the world's highest lake if its altitude of 5000-plus meters is officially verified," he added. The lake named as Singar by the locals is said to have formed out of the water melted from the Himalayas. The lake can be reached after 18 hours' trek from Manang district headquarters, Chame. It is 24 kilometers from Chame, said the Himalayan Times report.The suitable time period to visit the lake which offers a panoramic view of about a dozen peaks towards the north is between July and November. The lake has Mt Manaslu to the east, Mt Damodar to the west, Mt Annapurna and Mt Lamjung to the south, and Mt Peri in the Tibet to the north. The municipal authorities hope that the newly found lake would help promote tourism in the district once it is declared the world's highest lake.At present, Tilicho Lake, which is located at an altitude of 4,919 meters, holds the title of the world's highest lake. The lake is 4 km long, 1.2 km wide and around 200 meters deep.By Sowmya Sangam

Man vs Wild: Narendra Modi Was Calm in Crisis, Says Bear Grylls August 10, 2019 12:26

The host of the popular television show ‘Man vs Wild’, ahead of the premiere of the special episode on Discovery Channel featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said Modi was an example of calm in the middle of a crisis. Bear Grylls in an exclusive interview to ANI said: “PM Modi is a man who cares deeply about the environment. That is why he came on this journey with me. He has spent time in the jungle as a younger man and I was surprised how comfortable he was out there and how calm he was.” "We got hit by some really big stones and torrential rain whilst we were there. Our team was really on the edge, but the Prime Minister was just very calm and I saw that throughout our journey. Whatever we were doing, he was very calm. That was cool to see. You never really know what someone is like until there's a crisis. It was good to be reminded that as a world leader, Prime Minister Modi is calm in a crisis," Bear Grylls was quoted as saying by ANI.                     (Video source from: Kanak News) The special episode of PM Modi, where he spent some hours deep inside the forests of the Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand along with Bear Grylls, will be premiered on August 12. Read: Narendra Modi to Feature in Discovery’s Man vs Wild Episode with Bear GryllsWhat stood out the most about Modi throughout the journey, Grylls said, was Modi's humility, as even through incessant rains, there was a "big smile" on his face.Grylls also said that PM Modi was a very humble guy and was a sport while crossing the river on a raft made out of reeds and a tarpaulin."What shone brightly for me was his humility. Even though there were rain and his secret services were trying to get out umbrellas, he said 'no I'm fine'. I made a raft out of reeds and a tarpaulin. I said I think we can get across the river using this, but the secret services were like 'we cannot put the Prime Minister in a little raft'. But he [Modi] said he was fine and we'd do this together. He asked me to get in too, but the things started sinking. So it was me swimming and pushing him, he was soaking wet but there was a big smile on his face even through the rain," Grylls said."I said to him in the beginning, it was my job to keep you safe from wild animals, bad weather and big rivers, which was true. He was calm and considerate, very trusting of me and we just traveled together. It was harder for his security team as they were carrying weapons briefcases and all that. The Prime Minister was an example of calm and cheerfulness," Bear Grylls added.A 45-second promo video of the special episode was released last month by Bear Grylls. By Sowmya Sangam

H-1B Visa Petition Denials at All-Time High in First Quarter 2019 August 10, 2019 11:45

The United States has turned down work visas to employees of India’s largest IT services exporters inordinately in the past year. According to data from the United States-based research foundation, the denial of work visas has risen to all-time high with country’s tech giants like Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys, HCL Technologies, and Wipro seeing half of their work visa applications being rejected reportedly due to Trump administration’s move to give more employment and wages for American workers.   TCS has witnessed 37 percent increase in visa denial rate during the first quarter of FY19 (October-December 2018) from 6 percent in FY15, according to a report by the National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP), which sourced data from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that follows a October-September financial year.  The denial rate for Infosys has gone up to 57 percent in the first quarter of FY19 from 2 percent in FY15. HCL Technologies has witnessed a 43 percent increase in the denial rate from 2 percent in FY15. In the case of Wipro, the denial rate increased to a whopping 62 percent from 7 percent in FY15, data from NFAP showed. “The numbers have shot through the roof,” said Shivendra Singh, vice president of the global trade department at industry body NASSCOM. “The high (denial) rates and Request For Evidence (RFE) are impacting the ability of Indian companies to service clients in the key U.S. market besides making it more expensive,” he added. NASSCOM’s Singh said the industry grouping has been arguing strongly for the U.S. to streamline the process so that “(Indian) IT companies continue to make the U.S. economy more competitive by working with more than 75 percent of Fortune 500 companies, the majority being American companies”. “We are getting highly impacted by this since the numbers have never been this high. If the denial rate or RFEs are more, it increases the paperwork and there is more burden and more cost for companies,” he said.Rajiv S Khanna, managing attorney at law firm Immigration.com, said, “Rate of denials have gone up across the board in all legal immigration cases, especially (relating to) H-1B visas. The government has created an environment where the responses for the RFEs have increased from 30-50 pages to 600-1,000 pages for an H-1B case. It has increased its burden of processing cases and that’s why cases are taking much longer to process than they used to.” In April this year, Infosys said the rising attrition in its ranks was partially due to the sharp decline in H-1B visa approvals and said it had to come up with a “new value proposition” to help retain employees.According to report, the attrition rate of Infosys had shot up to more than 18 percent at the end of March 2019 on a standalone annualized basis, compared with 16.6 percent in the same period early this year.Chief operating officer of Infosys UB Pravin Rao said the company was seeing higher employee attrition in the three-five year experience bracket in India and the two-three year experience bracket in the United States for whom “the value proposition in the past has been onsite opportunities”, he had said. According to industry experts, the increase in denial rates and scrutiny on non-immigrant visa applications is due to Trump administration’s executive order which seeks to create more employment and higher wages for American workers.A group of U.S. lawmakers early this month expressed their concern over the soaring RFEs and visa denials, saying it was leading to the tech industry in Toronto growing faster than in Silicon Valley or Washington.By Sowmya Sangam
