Waste not picked up on time in Ahmedabad: Survey 11.8.2018 DNA: Popular News
A pilot survey of six wards of the city suggests that there is a lack of punctuality in waste collection. To make the city cleaner, the civic authority is considering the removal of silver dustbins from the streets, and introducing some more waste collection points as well. However, one survey suggests that the city needs even more bins for waste accommodation. These six wards in the city need more dustbins — Point of Interest (POI) — from where the garbage could be collected. The survey was conducted in Bapunagar, Ghatlodia, Khadia, Maninagar, Nava Vadaj, and Nikol wards of the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC). The civic body had also roped in an external agency  — Urban Management Centre — to help them conduct the survey and  help maintain the existing sanitation level  in these six wards.  The agency, in its report of the survey, which started in May 2018 and ended in July 2018, marked 3,667 POIs in the six wards and also gave recommendations to the AMC.

DNA Mumbai Anniversary: Rebelling against the times, these artists have carved a niche in Art World 27.7.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Alyque Padamsee: Brand new forever At the recent Mumbai launch of Pavan K Varma’s Adi Shankaracharya, when the floor was thrown open to questions, veteran theatre person and ad-guru Alyque Padamsee asked Varma why radical Hindutva found so many takers.  The nonagenarian did not wait for the mike, he did not preface his question with esoterics and the booming voice he threw could be heard across the auditorium, leading to applause. But that’s him. There are mavericks and there is Padamsee. Never one to shy off calling out social evils, he has often been the voice to go to for mediapersons as both social observer and commentator. Alyque’s grandfather was conferred the title ‘Padamsee’ by the government when he distributed all the food in his granary in the village he headed as sarpanch during a famine. And then it became the family name.  The advertising fraternity has variously named him ‘ad-man of the century’, ‘brand father of Indian advertising’, and even ‘God’. He has not only created over 100 brands, ...
