Telangana's RTC crisis is everyone's problem 17.10.2019
Public transport is a basic civic need. It is as vital as food, water and health. The world over, governments are focusing on providing efficient, cost-effective and climate-friendly transport to its citizens. In many developed countries, where most services are hived off to the private sector, they still retain control of public transport. In most European countries, public transport is largely government run. Many people who ride in cars today would have, at one time, come from their village to Hyderabad in an RTC bus and made their fortune — including probably our Chief Minister. The RTC crisis has been created by the government, and particularly by the Chief Minister himself. He can go to any extent to accomplish his objectives, be it the move to shift the secretariat, demolish heritage buildings, build projects which are never going to make economic sense and withdraw benefits to deprived sections. It"s a government by one man for one family. So far, he got away with several of his ...

Remnants of Buddhist artefacts being reinstated in Aghanistan 15.10.2019
Kabul: Restoring Afghanistan"s Buddhist artefacts that were destroyed by the Taliban 18 years ago is like working on a 1,500-year-old jigsaw puzzle, say conservators working on the latest restoration project. The militant Islamic group in 2001 destroyed artefacts dating from the third century when many Afghans practised Buddhism, including two towering Buddha statues in Bamyan province and scores of smaller ones excavated from monasteries and preserved at the national museum in Kabul. After the Taliban government fell that same year, the museum began restoring remnants of the country"s Buddhist history. The latest US-supported project aims to reassemble thousands of pieces into statues within the next three years. "It is very important (work) because it is actually restoration of our heritage, our identity, our past," said Mohammad Fahim Rahimi, director of the 100-year-old National Museum of Afghanistan. "Buddhism was practised here for more than 1,000 years. That"s a ...

Two car crashes, climate change and Brexit, lead to chaos in UK 14.10.2019
London is one huge traffic jam. The latest movement against climate change called Extinction Rebellion has decided to stop traffic movement in central London for eight days. So the Lambeth and Westminster bridges over the Thames, which move traffic into Westminster — are shut and cars or buses have to go a much longer way. Trafalgar Square is occupied and people — regardless of age and gender — have glued themselves on to the road so the police cannot easily remove them. Even so, it is all very good-natured. The police are being very gentle, so no lathi-charge. Boris Johnson denounced the rebels as "crusties" but then his father Stanley has joined the movement, happy to be called a crustie. The government is not against the occupiers. It has promised zero emissions by 2030. The UK has been at the forefront of lower emissions ever since the former Labour leader Edward Miliband was minister in the last Labour government a dozen years ago. So there is no disagreement between ...
