Labourer's son, porter's daughter from slums bag seats in DU 23.7.2017 deccanherald.com
Getting a seat in a Delhi University college is a dream come true, but for those who beat poverty and the hardships of an urban slum to secure a spot amid the sky-high cut-offs, the feat becomes all the more remarkable. Among the thousands who walked into the varsitys 60-odd under-graduate institutes this year was a labourers son, who wants to become an IAS officer; a boy whose mother ekes out a living by selling lemons; and a porters daughter, who aims to empower women through journalism. For 17-year-old Prince, normal conditions for studying included the constant clattering of passing trains and the stink from heaps of garbage and junk in one of Indias biggest scrap markets Mayapuri. "I had to study at night. There are less trains during this hour. Sometimes, I put ear buds to cut out the deafening sound," says Prince, adding "if I become an IAS officer, I will take my family away from here." The boy scored 94 per cent and is now studying political science at Kirori Mal College. He plans to start ...

Smart cities plan may harm environment: UK study 22.7.2017 deccanherald.com
India's plans to create 100 new smart cities may have a significant detrimental impact on the environment, unless greater emphasis is placed on supporting infrastructure and utilities, a study has found. Researchers from the University of Lincoln in the UK conducted a detailed analysis of the environmental implications of the planned developments, which would see medium-rise housing (between three and five storeys) replaced with high-rise towers of 40 to 60 storeys. "When announcing its plans in 2015, the Indian government said this type of development would be sustainable, environment-friendly and smart," researchers said. The latest research suggests that the resulting increase in population density is likely to place significant extra demands on resources, including electricity and water, while simultaneously increasing the output of waste in the form of drainage, solid waste and greenhouse gases. The predictions are based on an analysis of the government's exemplar development, Bhendi Bazaar, a ...

Three is a mess, not just a crowd 22.7.2017 DNA: Mumbai
In 2012, the then Congress government in Delhi headed by Sheila Dikshit trifurcated the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), creating three new entities – East Delhi Municipal Corporation, North Delhi Municipal Corporation and South Delhi Municipal Corporation. The ostensible rationale behind the move was to "improve administrative efficiency" and also make the civic body more people-friendly. The unified MCD was responsible for the civic upkeep of almost 94 per cent of the national capital. Five years later, the BJP, which now controls all the three civic bodies after sweeping the elections held in April this year, is mulling unifying the three. The reason? Improving administrative efficiency and dealing with financial woes of the three bodies. Never-ending woes The corporations, governing eight of the eleven districts of the national capital, have been marred by shortage of funds, corruption and lack of resources. There are a total of 272 wards in the city. The South and North have 104 wards and the ...
