Bengaluru: After several protests by the residents of TC Palya Main Road and Horamavu, BBMP Commissioner Anil Kumar visited the place to inspect the condition of the road and assured the residents that the roads will be restored in a couple of months. The residents of both areas carried out several protests to draw the attention of officials, and had met every officer from civic departments. They had no one to go to, as even the local MLA Byrathi Basavaraj has been disqualified. However, continued protests woke up the officials.

Now is an apt time to spread the message of non-violence 16.9.2019
The divisiveness of Brexit still prevails as the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, tries to find a solution.

He still thinks the UK will exit come October 31. No one is clear how he will manage that — but perhaps he is trying to channel some superhuman powers. He has compared the UK with the "Incredible Hulk", a character popular with readers of comic books. Many are now trying to analyse the cartoon superhero to understand what the Prime Minister meant; as the chief characteristic of the "Hulk" is that he is transformed from a mild-mannered scientist (who invented him) called Bruce Banner into a huge green monster when he is angered. But maybe somewhere the PM is worried. He, of course, claims that he remains stress-free by taking early morning walks with his new pet dog, and reading poetry at night to put ...
