The old world charms forever 22.10.2017 The Tribune
Aakash Mehrotra There would be a few places in the architectural history of India that had gone from a place of moderate importance to become the capital of one of the most influential sultanate. Champaner was one such place. It flourished for decades, only to be attacked, ransacked and left deserted in just a span of a century. The rise and fall of its civilisation had been as volatile as a stock market.  A one hour journey from Vadodara brings you to this Unesco World Heritage site. Champaner was founded by the Rajput king Vanraj Chavda of the Chavda Kingdom in the 8th century. The neighbouring city of Pavagadh worked as a key strategic point on trade routes, emanating from Gujarat to the whole of India. Many Gujarat sultans attempted to capture Pavagadh. Mahmud Begda succeeded in doing so in 1484, after laying siege to the city for nearly two years. He renamed the city Mohammadabad and moved his capital from Ahmedabad to this city. In 1535, the city was captured by Mughal ruler Humayun, and since the ...

City bizmen at receiving end, blame poor connectivity to Delhi 22.10.2017 The Tribune
Ludhiana, October 21 Being the industrial city, Ludhiana is being affected due to its poor connectivity with Delhi. One flight and only three trains from the city to Delhi is a cause of inconvenience to industrialists. Adding to their woes is the late running of to-and-fro trains. Nearly 50,000 people daily commute to Delhi, so only three trains, one flight and 2-3 government-run buses are proving to be inadequate. City businessmen demand that at least two to three more Shatabdi trains should start from Ludhiana to Delhi. Badish Jindal, president, Federation of Punjab Small Industrial Association (FOPSIA), said the flight from Ludhiana to Delhi is a mere eyewash. “It takes four hours to reach Delhi by road in a private vehicle. There is only one flight, timings of which are inconvenient according to the business hours. One reaches Delhi by road in the same amount of time, as the airport is located on the outskirts and you have to leave early due to the traffic congestion and railway crossing on the way. ...

Malwa Youth Federation defaces road signs 22.10.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Bathinda, October 21 Members of various organisation today defaced road signs as part of a campaign, which they called ‘Save Punjabi’. During the day, members of the Malwa Youth Federation, Dal Khalsa and other organisations went around the city and its adjoining areas. They blackened the English and Hindi versions on the signboards. As the police department and district administration intervened and stopped the youngsters from defacing property, they staged a road blockade in the city, accusing the administration of being hand in glove with the Central Government and working towards promoting English and Hindi in Punjab. Led by union leader Lakha Sidhana, they climbed atop buses and ladders to paint the boards black. “Despite the fact that Punjabi is our mother tongue, it has been relegated to the third place on signboards after English and Hindi. It is also shocking to see that at some places, the boards don’t even use Punjabi. The language is not being given the respect and ...

18 arrested for assault on three Army personnel in Baramulla 22.10.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Srinagar, October 21 Eighteen persons were arrested in north Kashmir for labelling three Army men as alleged braid-choppers and assaulting them. The Territorial Army men were assaulted “mercilessly” by an unruly mob on October 18 in a marketplace in Sheeri village of Baramulla in north Kashmir after they were branded as alleged braid-choppers by a “notorious stone-thrower,” Qaiser Bilal Bhat, said Imtiyaz Hussain, SSP, Baramulla. He added that the police had so far arrested 18 accused, including the main conspirators in the case, and also recovered looted cash, ATM cards and mobile phones from them. Even as the police are still clueless in most of the cases and have dismissed the incidents as mass hysteria, a large majority of fear-stricken residents refuse to accept that the “braid-chopping” could be linked to any psychiatric disorder. Meanwhile, the authorities today imposed restrictions in areas falling under the jurisdiction of seven police stations in Srinagar to quell the ...

Pedal away, sky’s the limit 22.10.2017 The Tribune
Amarjot Kaur We are about 9 feet 6 inches away from finding our Richie Trimble—the man who, as mentioned in the Guinness World Record, built the tallest ‘rideable’ bicycle called “Stoopidtaller”, measuring 6.15 m (20 ft 2.5 in) in Los Angeles, California, USA, on December 26, 2013. Taking one step at a time, 39-year-old cyclist Rajiv Kumar created a 10-foot-six-inch tall bicycle in 2014. He is quick to mention that this is the third of his inventions and that his name finds mention in the Limca Book of Records.  Childhood love “I was in tenth standard when I first created a bicycle—that was in 1995. Ever since bicycles have fascinated me, even though they have been considered out of fashion, I have not outgrown my love for them,” he begins. Kumar proudly showcases an album containing pictures of his newly constructed bicycle. He had made it in 2014, a year after constructing an 8-foot-six-inch tall bike. “That too was mentioned in the Limca Book of Records and Unique World Records,” he says.  At Sector ...
