Mood in Valley: A sense of hurt, betrayal, defiance 13.11.2019
Separatists say they have been vindicated by New Delhi"s stripping Jammu and Kashmir of its special status and splitting the state into two Union territories. Mainstream politicians other than those belonging to the BJP and like-minded groups feel betrayed for they have lost the argument that the interests of J&K and its people are safe only in democratic, vibrant India.  One of the causes of the new age turbulence in the Vale of Kashmir has been attributed to the betrayal of the democratic expectations. The "most horrible onslaught", as the August 5 move is seen by many here, can turn things uglier. The situation on the ground is already fluid and disquieting, notwithstanding those at the helm seeking to present a rosy picture. Even after the lapse of 100 days, the stalemate over the repeal of Article 370 of the Constitution and bifurcation of the state persists. The Valley"s educational institutions remain shut or only limited class work does take place at a few of those ...

Govt needs to exit oil, banking, rail freight 13.11.2019
In the run-up to the Delhi Assembly elections in 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had famously rebutted the Opposition argument that the economy was doing well because of a record low in crude oil prices by exclaiming, if he was lucky for the economy, why vote for others. But a little over a year after this triumphalist statement, the economy"s slide began — beginning with the ill-conceived demonetisation, ill-timed roll-out of the goods and services tax and the artificial suppression of rural incomes by offering a lower minimum support price for agricultural produce. The policy mess-up led to job losses, lower consumption and a resultant lower investment. This is a vicious cycle that everyone wants to stay away from. But instead of addressing the problem head-on, the government continued to remain in denial. The downturn that had set in during 2017 is now snowballing into a major economic crisis — global rating agency Moody"s has already downgraded its outlook for India as it ...

Chennai: Cab-hailing company Uber has invested Rs 1,767 crore in its India business. The investment is expected to strengthen its food delivery business as well as its new ventures in India. The Netherlands-based Uber International Holding BV and Uber International BV have allotted 11, 128,746 shares of nominal value of Rs 10 for a premium of Rs 1,578 to Uber India Systems. As per a regulatory filing to the Registrar of Companies, the investment was approved on October 29.

Zomato and Swiggy have recently raised funding to compete in the high cash-burn business of food delivery. In order to compete with them, the parent company seems to have pumped in money into the Indian business. UberEats has not been able to expand itself to the size of ...

Need skywalks, proper junctions to avoid accidents 13.11.2019
If traffic rules are in place and are enforced strictly, most of the road accidents can be avoided. There should be a system in place, where no vehicle is allowed to cross a certain speed within the city limits. When I was the traffic commissioner, I carried out a study on the accident zones in the city and found that pedestrians and two-wheeler riders form majority of the victims. In K.R. Puram, Yelahanka and Chikkajala limits, there are a lot of localities on either side of the National Highway. Residents from these localities try to cross the road without noticing speeding vehicles, while two-wheelers drive in the opposite direction. Such violations should stop. There is a need for skywalks, underpasses or proper junctions. In K.R. Puram limits, Tin Factory is a notorious junction, where hundreds of vehicles converge at a single point. Heavy vehicles, including buses, should be restricted to a few lanes, so that they don"t drive all over the road. Similarly, in Yelahanka and Chikkajala, we need ...

Hrithik Roshan's cycling adventure 13.11.2019

Hrithik Roshan hasn’t spilled the beans on which film he will sign after his twin successes this year – Super 30 and WAR, but the actor surely is taking some advice seriously.

He was spotted getting some fresh air on Monday night by taking his cycle out for a spin around his vicinity. “He was wearing a hoodie along with spectacles to cover his identity, and wore sweatpants along with that.

He was cycling for quite a while as if someone had asked him to cycle in the fresh air,” says an eyewitness.
