#MIT #ProudMoment
Girl from Wadala (Mumbai), who dropped out of formal schooling at the age of 12, has secured a place at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Her scholarship defies the undue weightage given by Indian universities to marks and degrees.
Proud of you Malvika Joshi (Y) :)

#Bengaluru #Potholes
A huge pothole on Central Jail Road has become every motorist’s nightmare. It is very difficult to manoeuvre through it, especially during rains, says ICMyC user Mohammed Anas. Your vote will bring this pothole into limelight and will urge the civic authorities to get it fixed. Vote up: http://buff.ly/2aiXPUH

#Corruption #FutureBribeFighters
We were super stoked to host a Workshop on Retail Corruption for some 800 plus young bribe fighters of tomorrow at Mount Carmel College, Bengaluru, on August 8th!
The event included some thought provoking and engaging sessions from Dr. Malati Das, former Chief Secretary, Govt. of Karnataka and Dr. S T Ramesh, Director General of Police, and the IPAB team.
The sessions included causes of retail corruption , laws and citizen measures to fight it, good governance and what the students, as proactive citizens of tomorrow, can enact.

#‎CorruptionNews #‎BlackMoney
India was in the top 50 globally between 1996 and 2007, but started improving its rank after that. It was ranked 58th in 2013. The current ranking is its best in the last two decades.
Black money has always been an emotive issue with Indians, with every political party promising to bring back money stashed by Indians in offshore tax havens. [Image: Quint]
