By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 07th November:- Punjabi singer AMN's first song "Raatan Nu" has been released by J-Star Productions and the song has already won hearts of many as soon as it was released. It is a sad song that connects with the emotions of every youngster.
Amn himself wrote and sang the song 'Rataan Nu'. Music direction is done by J-Star; song's music video has been directed by R Swami and produced by J-Star Productions.
Amn has succeeded in fulfilling his dream after so many years of struggle. Speaking on the occasion, Amn said that he has been working for his first song for quite some time. If many people supported him in his journey, many people felt that he would not be able to do anything. The release of Raatan Nu has given a befitting reply to those people that if you work hard for something, then one day you will get success. This song has removed the darkness of him life which the taunts of the people had enforced on him.  
Regarding the song, Amn said that it is a sad song which is the feeling of a common youngster. He along with J-Star have worked very hard on this song. 
Music director of the song, J-Star said that the lyrics of this song are very good which Amn himself has written. Amn has talent that will take him much further. He said that one day Amn came and met him and said that he wants to do a song with him. He heard his song which he liked and we started working together on this project.
Video director of the song, R Swami said that he got a call from J Star & he said that he has very good friend, He has to get his music video done. He fly directly from Mumbai to Delhi and go there and he introduced him to Amn. His meeting with Amn was a great experience. He is a very good person at heart, but he was thinking how a graphic designer can sing a song, then when he heard his song, He liked the song very much. He believes that when the song sounds good, its filming also becomes good. J Star did amazing music as he always does. The surprising thing was that Amn himself wrote the song. There was a very home like atmosphere; He did not think that he is working with a new artist. It seemed that he already know Amn. We were planned to finish filming for this song in 2 days.  But because of Amn, we finished this song in one day; it is such a good artist. He has seen such dedication in very few people. He heartily congratulates him and he give him the very best wishes.

Chandigarh Girl Unveils Her ‘Needledust’ Store Showcasing Juttis, Popular Among Bollywood Celebs

By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 07th November:- Shirin Mann Sangha, who is originally from Chandigarh, has made a name for herself & of course for Chandigarh by styling Bollywood celebrities with her beautiful juttis.
A former journalist-turned-footwear-designer, Shirin’s passion for designing juttis made her reinvent and redesign the jutti in a contemporary style under her label ‘Needledust’, which was launched in 2014. Now she has come back to her roots–by unveiling a ‘Needledust’ store at Elante Mall, Chandigarh.
Shirin Mann Sangha, Founder & Creative Head, Needledust said that the motive behind ‘Needledust’ is to revive one of the best Indian handicrafts – the jutti; on the ever-evolving international fashion grounds.
Shirin has styled Priyanka Chopra her Mehndi ceremony with bespoke juttis designed by her and created by her team of skillful artisans. It is noteworthy that a special market place was also created at the star-studded wedding of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas in Jodhpur, where Needledust set up an exclusive pop up showcasing the new styles as well as the Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla X Needledust collection. The beautiful superstar bride also adorned the latest styles by Needledust at the celebrated wedding. What’s more, Shirin has etched her collection’s footprints in Bollywood by creating special Mehndi tokens for the heartthrob couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh's wedding at Lake Como. Deepika especially selected the designs and the packaging of the special potlis created for Forever Love and Mayfair juttis by Needledust.
About unveiling her venture at her hometown Shirin, said that she is excited and a bit emotional to bring ‘Needledust’ first time to her hometown. She loved the craft since she was a child by seeing her mother wearing Punjabi juttis. But the first experiment happened, when she was getting married and realized the dearth of beautiful, pop colour juttis, She decided to design her own wedding pair adorned by ghungroos and this was appreciated by many.
Shirin further said that Needledust’s exciting new store is the first of its kind experiential store in Chandigarh, wherein each element is carefully designed in the brand's aesthetic with raw materials including pine wood, gold brass, Indian marble and jute.
For the first time ever, Needledust in association with Swarovski will be offering special and bespoke customization service to their patrons at the Chandigarh store. Needledust’s Chandigarh outlet is also featuring Swarovski Crystals along with its Autumn-Winter collection. The new exciting store has Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla X Needledust juttis too.
Shirin added that the store has a wide array of a vegan(non leather) collection. Slip on mules is available under this which are an exclusive alternate footwear made with faux leather. We are foraying in a major way into international Mules which are inspired by the fashionable traveler. As far as juttis are concerned we have contemporarized these to pair nicely with even Western outfits. That’s a USP of her line.
Over the years Needledust has gained a strong Bollywood following including Alia Bhatt, Aishwarya Rai, Disha Patani, Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Kriti Sanon, Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Sara Ali Khan, Tapsee Pannu etc.
Needledust brings a line of bespoke fine leather juttis, that speak the charm of a true old school artisan with a desire to recreate fashion for those that wear, admire, preserve its elegance, class and culture.

मदनपुर कोपरेटिव सोसायटी की एजीएम में सैंकड़ों सदस्यों ने किया हंगामा: सदस्यों के दबाव में बैठक छोडक़र भागे पूर्व अध्यक्ष व पदाधिकारी:कोपरेटिव विभाग के अधिकारी ने बनाई कार्यवाहक समीति

By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 07th November:- स्थानीय किसान भवन परिसर में बृहस्पतिवार को उस समय हंगामा हो गया जब मदनपुर कोपरेटिव सोसायटी के प्रबंधकों को उस समय सोसायटी सदस्यों के विरोध का सामना करना पड़ जब प्रबंध समीति द्वारा वर्ष 2019-20 के लिए वार्षिक आम सभा का आयोजन किया जा रहा था। सदस्यों के हंगामे और बढ़ते दबाव के बीच सोसायटी का पूर्व प्रधान तथा अन्य पदाधिकारी बैठक छोडक़र ही चले गए। जिसके बाद सदस्यों ने पूर्व प्रधान मनमीत सिंह द्वारा जारी एजेंडे को रद्द कर दिया और सहकारिता विभाग के इंस्पैक्टर ने सोसायटी के कामकाज के लिए एक अस्थाई कमेटी का गठन कर दिया।
आज आयोजित की गई कमेटी के विरोध में पंजाब,हिमाचल,हरियाणा तथा दिल्ली से कमेटी के सदस्य चंडीगढ़ पहुंचे मदनपुर कोरपरेटिव सोसायटी के सदस्यों ने रोष व्यक्त करते हुए कहा कि पंजाब राज्य सहकारी सभा एक्ट 1961 की धारा 26 के अनुसार धारा 26 (1सी) में जरूरी है कि प्रत्येक कमेटी अपना कार्यकाल समाप्त होने से 90 दिन पहले तक नई कमेटी का गठन करने की व्यवस्था करे। धारा 26 (1 डी) में कहा गया है कि जहां कोई कमेटी पदभार संभालने से रह जाती है और नई कमेटी नहीं बनाई जाती है तो रजिस्ट्रार द्वारा किसी भी सरकारी अधिकारी को प्रबंधक नियुक्त किया जा सकता है।
सोसायटी के वरिष्ठ सदस्य इकबाल सिंह ओबराय ने कहा कि मदनपुर कोपरेटिव सोसायटी की प्रबंध समीति का कार्यकाल सात फरवरी को समाप्त हो रहा है तथा नई कमेटी के गठन के लिए कोई व्यवस्था नहीं की गई है। आज की बैठक में प्रबंध समीति द्वारा पेश किया गया एजेंडा सोसायटी सदस्यों के अधिकारों के उलट है। एजीएम का विरोध करने वाले सदस्यों ने कहा कि रजिस्ट्रार की जांच में यह साफ हो चुका है कि अध्यक्ष मनमीत सिंह की सदस्यता जायज नहीं है। इसके बावजूद रजिस्ट्रार विकास गर्ग द्वारा उन्हें क्लीन चिट देते हुए उल्टा सोसायटी सदस्यों को सहयोग करने के निर्देश दिए गए।
सोसायटी सदस्य जसवीर सिंह कलसी ने कहा कि रजिस्ट्रार द्वारा 14 अगस्त को दिए गए फैसले के विरोध में सदस्यों ने हाईकोर्ट में याचिका दायर की। जिसे पांच नवंबर को मंजूर कर लिया गया। उन्होंने कहा कि सोसायटी की प्रबंध समीति द्वारा वर्ष 2018-2019 के खातों का अभी तक ऑडिट नहीं करवाया गया है। आरटीआई में यह साफ हो चुका है कि सोसायटी द्वारा बनाई गई इमारत पूरी तरह से गैर कानूनी है और गमाडा द्वारा इसे गिराने के आदेश जारी हो चुके हैं।
आज बैठक के दौरान जब उक्त सदस्यों ने विरोध किया तो मनमीत सिंह उसके साथी वहां से भाग खड़े हुए। हंगामा बढ़ता देख भारी संख्या में पुलिस बल भी मौके पर तैनात रहा। इसके बाद सहकारिता विभाग के इंस्पैक्टर लवजीत सिंह ने सदस्यों की सहमति से इकबाल सिंह ओबराय को चेयरमैन, जसबीर सिंह कलसी को वाइस चेयरमैन, रणदीप सिंह चंदोक को महासचिव, आशा कुमारी गुरिंदर कौर मोहाली को बतौर सदस्य शामिल करके एक अस्थाई कमेटी का गठन कर दिया। यह कमेटी अगले साल फरवरी माह में होने वाले चुनावों तक सोसायटी का कामकाज देखेगी।
