7 Must Reads: Raj Thackeray exclusive interview, low voter turnout in Bangalore, and Smriti Irani 18.4.2014 DNA: Popular News
#1  What has Sharad Pawar done for Maharashtra, asks Raj Thackeray   MNS chief Raj Thackeray roots for Narendra Modi as PM and he sees himself as chief minister of Maharashtra one day soon. Raj has a Manhattan vision for Mumbai, one in which migrants from UP, Bihar and Jharkhand would be discouraged, and roads would be straight. He has a few cutting things to say about almost all Maharashtra leaders and his hero — apart from his uncle Balasaheb Thackeray — is a woman, Indira Gandhi. CP Surendran and S Balakrishnan met Maharashtra’s arguably most charismatic leader in his smoke-filled study at Shivaji Park. #2  Several housing societies in Mumbai to choose NOTA option A week from now as Mumbai goes to vote, the people in the city, in a first, will have the option to reject/disapprove of all the contesting candidates by opting for NOTA (None Of The Above). While the option will not have any direct impact on the outcome of the poll, it is already making a buzz in the city. #3  Extended weekend prompts ...

With their ilk in fray, IT pros make beeline for poll booths 18.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Call it the Nilekani or Bala effect. Or for that matter, the Aam Aadmi Party's impassioned call for routing the corrupt and ringing in a change for better governance. Every which way, one of City's much envied class - the software professionals - believed to cock a snook at such democractic demands on their luxurious time, could not be impervious to the tide of things sweeping the nation. That two of their own, much-revered ilk, former Infoscians V Balakrishnan and Nandan Nilekani were testing the political storm waters, seemed reason enough for the fraternity, not necessarily from Infosys alone, but those people in the surrounding IT acropolis, to stir out of their homes in large numbers to exercise their franchise. Despite virtually an inviting line-up of holidays to escape from the hustle and bustle of the City to destress from the rigours of their demanding work schedules, the software professionals were there, queued up with eligible voters from the family, to ink their thumbs and have their say in ...

People laze around as City is soaked in holiday mood 18.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Holiday mood gripped Bangalore on Thursday as citizens voted in the Lok Sabha elections. Commercial establishments and shopping malls either didn't open or wore a deserted look until afternoon. Traffic was thinner on roads and the city centre was devoid of its usual hustle and bustle. With the polling day falling just before the extended weekend (April 18 is Good Friday), many citizens chose to laze around on Thursday. Overall, the City was pleasantly peaceful except for a few untoward incidents on the outskirts. While voters like Varsha, a techie who works in Electronics City, exercised their franchise in the morning to relax and enjoy the rest of the day, scores of others didn't venture out until late afternoon so as to escape the heat. They trickled into polling booths only after weather improved after lunch and the sky became cloudy. Several shopping malls opened late than usual to enable their staff to vote in the morning. Bangalore Central, a shopping mall near Mayo Hall, opened around 12:30 pm. ...

Token system, waiting area, LCD screens please voters at model polling stations 18.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Facilities provided by the Election Commission of India (ECI) at the 100-odd model polling stations were a hit with the voters. At select stations, voters were issued tokens so that they didn't have to wait in queue. There was also a waiting area, drinking water, etc. Outside some stations, LCD screens were installed, on which the polling process was being streamed live. The initiative was seen as voter friendly, although few made use of it while scores of others were simply unaware about it. The token system was received well, especially in the morning. "We were able to convince the voters to use the token system during early morning hours when there was heavy rush. People happily got the tokens and sat in the waiting area," a constable deployed at the National Games Village polling station in Koramangala said. But as the day progressed and the crowd thinned, many voters simply walked in and cast their votes, he added. At this polling station, which had 954 registered voters, 106 voters made use of the ...

Thirsty homes 17.4.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
One of the most crucial factors to consider while buying a house should be the availability of water, writes Prashanth G N Availability of water is the most crucial factor while deciding to buy a home — be it an independent house or an apartment. South Bangalore, ironically, is the most vulnerable region to water shortage despite the Cauvery River being closest to it. Scores of residents in and around J P Nagar 8th Phase and Sarjapur are put into hardship because they have no Cauvery connection or even borewells. In general, with no option left, people continue to stay where they are and even go to areas where houses are being built with no guarantee of water. The need to have a permanent house in Bangalore is very crucial and hence people are willing to take houses wherever they are allotted, even if it means facing acute water shortage. Industrialist and a resident of J P Nagar 8th phase, B Y Ramesh says, "We live in an independent house in T K Deepak Layout in J P Nagar 8th Phase. And our house ...
