Some Campa Cola residents return to their homes 20.9.2014 Asian Age: Mumbai
A resident of one of the Campa Cola buildings Finding no affordable shelters, some evacuated members of Campa Cola buildings have started returning to their respective flats three months after vacating them, and if the sources are to be believed, many more may follow soon. They had vacated the flats after the BMC initiated demolition proceedings following the Supreme Court’s ruling. After evacuating around 140 flats, the BMC disconnected the gas, water and electricity supply, but did not lock the rooms, which eventually allowed for the residents in moving back in their homes. “The monthly rent of Rs 50,000 forced us to move back into our homes which are lying useless after we vacated. I decided to move back to the home with which I have developed an emotional bond,” said Shweta Hirawat, adding that her family was hopeful that the state government would do something to save their homes, otherwise it would cost it dearly in the Assembly polls. She said, “The whole world knows that we are paying the price ...

Reunited Kingdom 20.9.2014 Asian Age: Editorial
The United Kingdom became the Reunited Kingdom on Friday after the historic referendum saw independence for Scotland spurned. Even so, the world will not be the same again for the global power of yesteryears which once claimed that the sun never set on its empire. The 55 per cent vote for staying in the UK brings relief, at least temporary, to the financial world. Scotland itself can breathe easy because it would have struggled as a new country with drooping North Sea oil reserves and an unpredictable search for a new currency. The world, too, would have spent a more restful night Friday as the possible implications of a “Yes” vote would not have affected only the northern tip of the British island. The geopolitical reverberations may not have been major in the case of the UK, but beyond it the danger of separatism would have been terrible. Scotland’s first minister, Alex Salmond, and his emotional campaign for freedom on the lines of a modern Robert the Bruce has accepted defeat for the moment, but ...

Hopes and fears for Scotland: 'I hope this level of political engagement continues long into the future' 20.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Guardian readers look back at the referendum and share their hopes and fears for the future of Scotland Scotland rejected independence in the referendum voting to remain part of the 307-year-old union with England and Wales. Although the independence camp won large majorities in Glasgow and Dundee, 55% of voters voted against plans to become a separate nation. But what now? We asked Guardian readers from around the world to share their hopes for the future of Scotland. I live in Australia and left Scotland when I was 13 but I am still fiercely proud of my homeland and I know so many ex-pats who are as patriotic as those who still live there. My hope is that as a small country, Scotland will thrive and that old mindset of being ruled will disappear. I hope people will feel proud and want to make a difference without feeling like they dont have control or blaming someone else when it all goes wrong. I would like to see recognition of some serious health issues that are in need of preventive measures to ...

About other projects, the chairman said "Out of the other major planned projects, management is especially focused on the development of Daman and KG-DWN-98/2".He said, the development of Daman, a cluster of several discoveries in western offshore, has already been approved by the Board with an investment of Rs 5,219 crore and will start production ...

If its good enough for Scotland let England have its own parliament | John Redwood 19.9.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
As Gordon Browns home rule for Scotland is set in motion, English voters need the same at the expense of regional devolution I am glad Scotland has decided we are better together . I will work with many like-minded MPs to deliver more self-government for Scotland as the leaders have promised. The way Better Together behaved during the campaign tried the patience of many English unionists. I disliked their negative attacks, and their lack of emphasis on what the union has achieved in the past and more importantly what it can achieve in the future. I disliked the way large sections of English opinion were told not to trouble Scotland and to keep out of the way for fear of upsetting people there. I thought some businesses intervened in a counterproductive way, which may leave them with problems with customers of a different outlook for years to come. Above all I disliked the way the campaign towards the end made offers to Scotland without consulting the many English MPs who will be expected to vote it all ...
