S P7 A Pydiraju A tiger crosses the road as excited tourists look at it with awe at Tadoba Andheri Tiger Reserve in Maharashtra I’ll say what I have to in Nagpur: Pranab New Delhi: Breaking his silence on accepting an invitation to attend an RSS event at its Nagpur headquarters on June 7, former President Pranab Mukherjee on Saturday said whatever he has to say, he will say in Nagpur only. "Whatever I have to say, I will say in Nagpur. I have received several letters, requests and phone calls, but I haven't responded to anyone yet," Mukherjee was quoted as saying by Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika. The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has invited Mukherjee to be the chief guest at the concluding function of "Tritiya Varsh Varg" or third-year course and address the Swayamsevaks' on June 7. The RSS invite to Mukherjee sparked off a controversy, as the Congress leaders expressed unhappiness over his acceptance, while the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Sangh saw nothing wrong in it. Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh also wrote to Mukherjee requesting him not to attend the RSS event.

The Minister celebrated his birthday amid cheers and display of affection by his fans and followers Hyderabad: Convocation is a regular event in any higher education calendar with universities and autonomous institutions conducting the ceremony regularly to award hard-earned education degrees to students. However, NIMS (Nizams Institute of Medical Sciences), Hyderabad, the premier medical institute in both States, is an exception to this. It is well past 10 years since NIMS held its last convocation and understandably resident doctors are an unhappier lot. NIMS offers PG studies in MD (broad specialty) and DM (super-specialty) courses. An MBBS doctor can enroll for three-year MD course and afterwards another threeyear DM course at this institute. Unlike Kaloji and NTR Health Universities, NIMS does not offer MBBS (UG) course. Unlike other universities that have Governor as Chancellor, Chief Minister of the state is the Chancellor of the institute and NIMS Director being the Vice-Chancellor. The state Health Minister is the head of the governing body of the institute. Each year, nearly 150 PG students complete their study at NIMS.

Gunda Rajitha, a research scholar in the team, who has recently submitted her PhD thesis under his supervision, is the co-contributor for this work. The material could be utilised for the development of future transparent wearable sensors and biomedical devices, Dr Dash said.
