India’s leading English news channel from Times Network, will raise the bar even higher as Navika Kumar, Managing Editor, holds a forthright discussion with India’s leading spiritual reformer Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev on her show ‘Frankly Speaking’, airing Saturday September 8, 2018 at 7 PM. Kumar will be seen asking pointed questions spanning a range of issues affecting the nation such as women’s right to pray, cow slaughter, sit-in protests and dharnas by politicians, section 377, the unhealthy relationship between politics and religion in our country.

Known for her keen observations and straightforward approach, Navika Kumar does not waste a moment to ask Sadhguru upfront why the nation is witnessing such high levels of discord today. Invoking Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Kumar asks Sadhguru if he still stands by his belief that unbridled activism, in the form of dharnas by politicians, is detrimental to law and order. Without missing a beat, Sadhguru responds, “If you want to become a leader in this country, you don’t have to build anything or make a difference in people’s lives. You just have to gather a 100 people and block the highway, make everybody’s lives miserable for the next three days and you will get elected.” Read more

Mr. Shashwat Belapurkar, CEO, JM Financial Credit Solutions Limited, said, “We are overwhelmed by the response to JM Financial Credit Solutions Ltd.’s maiden Public Issue of NCDs, which also has the distinction of being the first from the JM Financial Group. Overall, the Public Issue of NCDs (including Greenshoe Option) was oversubscribed 2.19 times leading to a total subscription of Rs. 1,646 crore. Retail Investors (Category IV) and HNIs (Category III) have invested a total amount of around Rs. 1,468 crore, which is more than total NCD Issue size of Rs. 750 crore (including Greenshoe Option). The oversubscription of over 3.6 times in the Retail Investors category justifies our higher proportion of 30% allocation ratio to Retail Investors in the basis of allotment. The success of our NCD Public Issue sets a new benchmark for a wholesale NBFC such as JMFCSL that provides integrated financial solutions to real estate developers with a focus on residential project financing. This is a testimony to the success of the transformational changes in the real estate sector and will further deepen the Indian debt markets inviting meaningful long term wider public participation in debt offerings from wholesale NBFCs.” Read more
