  • Maharashtra Plastic Ban: A welcome ban

    The Maharashtra Government was late in banning the use of plastic but when it finally did, the people seemed to be ill-prepared for it. Reports from Mumbai and other places speak of daily hardships to shopkeepers and consumers for want of an alternative carry-bags of paper, jute or even cloth. It would have avoided these problems had the users of plastic bags been prepared for the drastic change. Of course, this is

  • Surgical Strikes video: Farzical strikes comment proven wrong

    Is it a case of partisanship gone amuck? We do not know. But what we do know is that it sounds most unedifying on ears that the Opposition and other critics of the government should continue to question, nay, ridicule the official claim about surgical strikes carried out by the armed forces against targets well inside the territory held by Pakistan. Why extend the political partisanship to such an extent that it

  • Legitimising a parallel system of education

    The coaching classes have been mushrooming across the country due to our faulty education system that emphasises more on exams; less on learning and holistic development, giving undue importance to marks. Perhaps, the coaching classes are necessary for those who are not enrolled in formal educational institutions and who wish to supplement their knowledge and acquire additional qualifications through distant and other modes of learning, to enhance their social status and job

  • Separation of powers: A beautiful theory

    That the executive and the judiciary are insulated from each other is a beautiful theory which does not work in practice if iconoclast judge Jasti Chelameswar is to be believed. He may be right because democracy, too, is a beautiful theory which fails in practice when judges and politicians mingle.

  • PM Modi goofs up on history says, Sant Kabir, Baba Gorakhnath sat together, even though they were from different eras

    Maghar: Few people have a sense of history. But one expects the prime minister to get his historical facts right. At least, when he is speaking on a public platform. The latest goof-up was in Maghar, Uttar Pradesh, on the occasion of the 620th anniversary of Kabir. The PM, according to media accounts, first paid his obeisance to Kabir by offering a chadar at his mausoleum. Then, he addressed a public meeting in the presence of UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and

  • PM Narendra Modi spent Rs 355 crore, on 41 trips to 52 countries in 4 years: RTI

    New Delhi: PM Modi has a reputation of being a globe-trotter. So, his most avid fans will find it fascinating reading that Modi (Ji) made a total of 41 trips to 52 countries in 48 months of his tenure. That makes it 165 days abroad during his 4-year tenure – an indulgence that cost the exchequer Rs 355 crores.

  • Mumbai plane crash: Incident is reflection of the failure of the aviation ministry, says advocate Yeshwant Shenoy

    Mumbai: The crash of a 12-seater plane in one of the city’s most congested suburbs — Ghatkopar — not only spooked the residents, but also raised several eyebrows. The first question which comes to one’s mind is that why the plane was allowed to conduct a test flight in adverse weather conditions? Another critical aspect is, who granted air-worthiness certificate to this plane, purchased by a Mumbai-based

  • Mumbai plane crash: Crashed chartered plane was owned by gukta baron Dipak Kothari’s blacklisted UY Aviation

    Mumbai: Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has a reputation in political circles of being a veteran survivor of a few close aviation shaves. Incidentally, the ill-fated aircraft was owned by UY Aviation — the same firm that was blacklisted by the Maharashtra government after a mishap last year. The near- mishap involved one of its choppers and CM Fadnavis.

    Mumbai plane crash: 5 dead as chartered plane crashes into construction site at Ghatkopar

    Mumbai: It is an urban nightmare. Five people died on Thursday afternoon when a 12-seater chartered aircraft crashed into the boundary wall of a partially-constructed building in Ghatkopar (west) – a jungle of concrete where most buildings are located cheek by jowl. All the four occupants on board, including the two pilots and the two aircraft maintenance engineers, perished. A pedestrian on the ground was also charred to death.

  • FIFA World Cup 2018: Japan in pre-quarters despite losing to Poland

    Volgograd (Russia): Japan lost 0-1 to Poland in their final Group H contest here on Thursday but still managed to go through to the FIFA World Cup pre-quarterfinals. Following the loss, thanks to Jan Bednarek’s 59th-minute strike, Japan have four points — the same as third-placed Senegal but the Asian powerhouse are ranked second in the group on the basis of fair play (number of yellow and red cards collected).

  • Way Or No Way

    We are firm on some beliefs of ours. They mean everything to us, they guide us, they drive us. To be attached to one’s beliefs is not bad, it’s a good thing. It shows that there are things we value, we cherish. In life, we come at a decision point often, where we have to make a very tough choice – the choice being whether we should stick to our beliefs or
