Tirumala's second ghat road closed over safety 13.11.2015 deccanherald.com
Incessant rains in Tirumala has forced the authorities to close the second ghat road for a another week, as it stands exposed to the falling boulders from top. Traffic along Ghat Road 2, which allows vehicles to move up the hill, has been diverted through a different route since the last three bends are vulnerable to falling boulders. However, Ghat Road 1 that brings the traffic up to the hills remains untroubled. A team of experts from IIT-Delhi working on the solution to stop boulders from falling on the ghat road has asked the TTD for a week's time to put a permanent solution in place. The IIT experts along with TTD JEO K S Srinivasa Raju and a team of TTD engineers on Thursday inspected the spots on the second ghat road where boulders and trees fell a few days ago at the height of the cyclone. Speaking to media after the inspection, IIT-Delhi experts Prof K S Rao and Prof Narasimha Rao said the phenomena of falling boulders was common in hilly areas and there was no need to panic.

Union Minister Birender Singh has reservations on IIT graduates and doctors opting for the civil services, saying they should not be wasting nations money spend on them and then later on coming to administer. "This is what I think somewhere there are aberrations. When students from IIT, when students from medical colleges, opt for IAS, I have total reservations for that. "Spending crores and crores on one student, may be a doctor or may be a IIT graduate or post-graduate, ultimately he comes to administer, no.

Fringe and rather more 2.11.2015 Telegraph: Opinion
When ratings agencies, central bankers and corporate titans begin to speak directly of intolerance, of the connection between insecure minorities and India's growth prospects, Mr Modi and his white-collar fellow travellers pretend to listen. To dismiss protesting artists and writers as Congress clients orphaned by that party's defeat comes naturally to a parivar inoculated against the individual imagination; telling Moody's Analytics or Narayana Murthy that they're imagining things is harder. When someone as adept at reading the prevailing wind as Kiran Mazumdar Shaw begins to tweet careful dissent, it's clear that deep in the bowels of India Inc. buyer's remorse has begun to stir.
