Plan your higher studies 28.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Dear Sir, I have completed my Class 12 this year from National Institute of Open Schooling. But I am confused about further studies.

Indiranagar, Koramangala say cheers to closure of bars 28.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Residents of Indiranagar and Koramangala, who have complained about loud music and unruly behaviour by people after consuming alcohol, are happy about the impending closure of liquor establishments, though some expressed disbelief. As many as 15 liquor establishments in Indiranagar and 49 in Koramangala have been classified as National and State Highway licence holders. According to the Supreme Court order, closure notice has been served to many of them situated within 500 feet of the highways. With the government failing to get any relief from National Highways Authority of India, there seems to be no option for many establishments than to shut or stop serving liquor. "It is really a good measure. It will ensure that our nights are calm. We have had tough times due to drunkards. We look forward to a time when we can walk freely at night," said Nagaraj Patil of Indiranagar. Swarna Venkataraman of Indiranagar Residents' Welfare Association, said, "It is a welcome measure. But, only a handful of the bars ...

Dickens' Oliver to hit stage with a musical twist 27.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist will come alive on stage with all his melodrama with a city-based team set to enact the musical adaptation of the Victorian novel. Director Ashley Williams Joseph, who gave 'Oliver!..with a Twist' first about 26 years ago, will bring back the tale of a child rising from squalor and horror to enter the gentlemen's society. Written in the style of a broadway musical by Jollen Bland, the play featuring home-grown talent will have two evening performances on July 1 and 2 at Guru Nanak Bhavan in Vasanthanagar. 'Oliver With a Twist' is the tale of the boy who runs away from the orphanage after asking for 'Food, Glorious food'. Considering that thousands of children in India become victims of human trafficking every year, it is not surprising if the plight of Oliver resembles the tales of many children here. The play gets its positive twist from the powerful music by Williams, who has given us Jungle Book I and II, Fiddler on the Roof, Cinderella, Sound of Music, Wizard of Oz, Snow ...

Non-Kannada film tickets cheaper from this weekend 27.6.2017 deccanherald.com
Tickets for non-Kannada films will be cheaper by 4% to 5% from July 1, once the Goods and Services Tax (GST) kicks in. On the other hand, tickets for films in Kannada and Karnatakas regional languages (Tulu, Kodava, Byari and Konkani) will be dearer by 18% or 28%. Under the new regime, tickets priced at Rs 100 or less are taxed at 18%, while those priced at more than Rs 100 are taxed at 28%. Under the GST, the maximum tax on tickets is 28%. Currently, non-Kannada films pay 32%. This means the tax on them decreases by 4%, resulting in lower ticket prices. The GST Council can't regulate ticket prices as it is left to the discretion of theatre owners. It can levy either 18% or 28%, based on ticket prices, regardless of categories such as dress circle and balcony. The new tax structure will not affect producers, distributors, exhibitors and theatre owners. Finally, the audience will have to bear the additional burden, said K Raman, Joint Commissioner (Minor Act), Commercial Taxes Department. Meanwhile, ...
