No toilet, no prem katha: Village panchayat in UP says girls won't marry into homes that don't have loos 22.10.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Seeking to uphold the dignity of women, a village panchayat in western Uttar Pradesh's Baghpat district decided on Sunday not to marry off their daughters to people in villages where there are no toilets. Talking about the unanimous decision of the panchayat of Bigwada village in the district, around 40 km from Delhi, village head Arvind declared that those going against the decision will be socially ostracised. He justified the decision by terming open defecation being against the dignity of a woman. "If someone do not have money for construction of a toilet, they could avail benefits of government schemes for the same," he ...

'As a sati savitri, she will be an opponent of sex before marriage' 22.10.2017 mid-day.com
A glimpse of the ebullient characters they play in their forthcoming film is made visible when Richa Chadha and Kalki Koechlin cheer with joy when we enter a room to conduct this interview. But, the enthusiasm has nothing to do with us, more with the generous packets of food that follow us. A harmless argument over a fish and a chicken dish ensues — Chadha, we're told, doesn't eat chicken — as the actors finally decide to dig into an associate's 'ghar ka dabba' instead. Chadha graciously thanks its owner, as Koechlin brushes away crumbles on the table. "Cleanliness is an obsession," she reasons sheepishly, stealing a glance at her co-actor. Kalki Koechlin That the duo shares an affable relationship is evident, essential even, given that they're set to bring forth, as Koechlin says, Bollywood's "first female road trip film". At first glance, the vivid Jia Aur Jia, that sees the duo escape to Sydney, seems like a trip one would love to take with close pals, but Chadha warns that all is not happy. "If you ...

Diwali gone, but waste heaps dot city roads 22.10.2017 The Tribune
Avneet Kaur Jalandhar, October 21 After Diwali celebrations, garbage heaps can be seen at various places in the city as the Municipal Corporation (MC) has failed to find a permanent solution to the problem of waste disposal. The city has been facing the problem of garbage lifting and disposal for the past many years. With the absence of a dedicated garbage collection service by the civic body, the bins, due to their less capacity, remain filled and garbage scattered throughout the day, showing the plight of the Swachh Bharat project in the city. Vehicles of the MC collect waste from many posh colonies, but the residents of other localities are bearing the brunt. Kaushal Singh, a resident of the city, said, “The approach of the MC towards garbage collection is biased. But it takes full measures for posh areas, while the others lie neglected. Many residential areas and market places across the city are littered with wrappers and cracker waste and are not cleared yet.” Officials of the MC said they were ...

Clean Buddha Nullah — still a distant dream 22.10.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Ludhiana, October 21 The Municipal Corporation has failed to check the dumping of solid waste into the Buddha Nullah despite spending around Rs80 lakh on de-silting and removal of solid waste from this highly-polluted drain in the past six months. The MC allocates lakhs of rupees for de-silting of the nullah every year in its annual budget, but it has failed to find out any permanent solution so far. Thus, residents living in the areas around the Buddha Nullah are a harried lot. Apart from dumping solid waste, the untreated industrial waste and sewerage are also being released into the nullah for the past five decades in different areas under the jurisdiction of the MC, as the sewerage treatment plants (STPs) are not being upgraded. Notably, a major project ‘Abatement of Pollution in Buddha Nullah’ and upgrade of STPs is hanging fire for three years. The previous SAD-BJP government had assigned the task to Engineers India Limited (EIL) to prepare a detailed project report (DPR) in ...
