BMC's decision to keep fire engine in park illegal: HC 17.1.2018 General News
The Bombay High Court said today the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's decision to keep a fire engine inside a public park in South Mumbai was "completely illegal." A bench of justices A S Oka and P N Deshmukh dismissed the civic body's argument that it was the original owner of the said land and hence could use it for any suitable purpose.

The stars are calling... 9.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
By 2020, the average Indian will be just 29 years old, making India the worlds youngest country. Over 64% of Indias population will be in the working age group, while the population of western countries, Japan and China grows older and less active. This would unleash a workforce with immense potential and give Indias economy a massive boost. On the other hand, this could become a demographic disaster if enough jobs are not generated and infrastructure does not gear up to adequately support the growth potential. Will our youth get a chance to test their wings and build a better India and world? Will our current leaders and policymakers be able to provide them quality education and training to prepare them to face tomorrows challenges? Or, will Indias youth be bogged down by lack of healthcare and social security, and cut-throat competition, to get and retain jobs? India is already set to overtake China as the worlds most populous country. In the coming years, New Delhi is likely to become the worlds ...
