Save yourself from rainy days 23.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Come rainy season, and urban India is on tenterhooks, when it comes to their houses. The reasons for these are many, ranging from poor construction to lack of a good rainwater draining system. Sometimes, a good many number of building parts, or even entire buildings have little or no exposure to sunlight. Correcting these anomalies is beyond the realms of practicality. Such being the case, it will be only wise to take the next best recourse. Architects, builders, consumers and the waterproofing industry have identified the problems associated with moisture in buildings and have come up with solutions that can keep the building dry for the most part of the year. When the rainy season sets in, they have come up with techniques that will get the water off the building fast, so that pooling and leaking of water into the structure can be contained. Adding slopes in the roofing area wherever possible and rainwater harvesting project incorporated into buildings can stem this problem to a large extent. It has ...

Remembering Bhagat Singh, Rajguru & Sukhdev on the day of their martyrdom: Twitter pays tribute to the martyrs 23.3.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
On March 23, 1931, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru, laid down their lives for the independence of India from colonial rule.  People took to Twitter to pay tribute to the three young men, who to make their voice heard, made noise in an assembly by dropping a grenade that just made noise, but did not take any life. The British Raj had sentenced the three martyrs to be hanged to death for their involvement in the killing of John Saunders, whom they had mistaken for James Scott, a British police superintendent. They had wanted to kill Scott because they were of the belief that he played a pivotal role in the death of eminent nationalist leader Lala Lajpat Rai. Prison did not dissuade the ignited spirit of Singh, who even behind the bars, participated in hunger strikes, whilst demanding for improved rights for the imprisoned Indians. It is this fearless spirit of the martyrs that Indians celebrate every year on Martyr’s Day. This is what people tweeted Headline that shocked the Nation !! The Tribune ...

GM's Halol workers on hunger strike, demand better VRS, jobs by SAIC 21.3.2017 Business Standard: Companies & Industry
The management-worker tussle at US-based car major General Motors' (GM) Halol site seems to be far from over as around 625 permanent workers at the site have now gone on a hunger strike demanding jobs from the buyer of the asset China's Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp (SAIC), or a better VRS package. Interestingly, the plant which is inching towards closure on April 28, is still making Taveras and Cruze. The workers have not disrupted work at the site. "We are demanding either a better VRS package, or we want the new owner to absorb us. They will need experienced workers at the site, then why not us?," said a senior worker at the site.
