A new digital channel, Hindu World, catering to Hindu philosophy and targeting aspirational Hindu youth is set to launch on Gudi Padva. According to a report in Times of India , Seshadri Chari, a member of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and part of BJP's national executive council, is the chief editor of the channel.  Chari's channel intends to focus on yoga, discussions, debates on economics instead of bhajans and kirtans. The first topic of debate when the channel launches next week will be the transaction tax imposed by banks. "The government's focus is on business, it needs to shift it towards agriculture. The farmer who cannot repay a loan commits suicide while the industrialist who fails to do so flees to London. The government needs to be more sensitive to the farming community. There should be more concentration on small, medium and cottage industries. Generate employment and entrepreneurs and we can create the much needed social security net called family," Chari tells the daily. The channel ...

TN farmers to protest until all demands met 23.3.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
The 80-odd men who are protesting with skulls at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi have decided to continue their protest after a central team recommended 'partly' assistance of Rs 2,096.80 crore as drought relief. The skulls, the protesters say, are the remains of Tamil farmers who committed suicide due to severe drought. These men have been protesting at Jantar Mantar — the protest site in the Capital — since March 14. "We are going to continue the protest indefinitely until the Centre fulfils all our demands. The state government has sought Rs 39,565 crore as drought relief from the National Disaster Response Fund. But the central team has recommended a partly sum of Rs 2,096.80 crore as drought relief. It is grossly inadequate. The state has witnessed an unprecedented drought in the last 150 years and the whole state has been declared drought-hit," South Indian Rivers Inter-Linking Farmers Association president P Ayyakannu who is leading the protest told DNA over the phone. On Tuesday, the central team ...
