A part of the industry since 2012, when she did a commercial film called 'From Sydney with Love', she made her presence felt with a Bengali film 'Icche' in 2013 and later, a socio-political thriller 'As The River Flows'. In a tete-a-tete, Babita talks to Anila Kurian about the release of the upcoming film and her character. The evident chemistry between you and Nawazuddin in the film is much talked about...

Three storm water drains (SWD) had breached leading the sewage water to seep into the houses near Bannerghatta Road in Dollars Colony. The house of former BBMP commissioner Siddaiah was also not deprived of this menace. After the heavy rainfall on Monday midnight, the breach in the storm water drain had led to the overflow of the sewage water causing waterlogging in this posh colony. Narayan N, a local resident, said, " The encroachment of Vaishnavi Apartment on the SWD has led to this menace. About 20-30 houses in the street have been affected. It is a risk to peoples health." Narayan also charged that none of the BBMP officials responded to the issue despite several complaints. However, Prakash, SWD, Dollars Colony, BBMP, said that they had constructed the SWD on the next day itself. "We have built the SWD on the very next day of the rain. But it is true that the apartment has encroached the SWD. We are working towards clearing some space," said Prakash. Meanwhile, Siddaiah said, "This was Ningayanna ...

Rise of integrated townships 17.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
One of the concepts that is quickly changing the country's real estate landscape is integrated townships. The exponential rise in the number of city dwellers is leading to an ever-increasing demand for housing and urban infrastructure. The housing sector is also undergoing a transformation as more of the urban population is moving from independent homes to gated communities and integrated townships, preferring them because of the higher security, holistic ecosystem and good governance that it offers. Conceptually at its most basic level, an integrated township is an endeavour to offer the consumers a complete city experience. To that extent, an integrated township comprises various formats of homes, high street retail, office buildings, hotels, convention centres, schools and hospitals offered in a secure, holistic and environment-friendly setting. Integrated townships are typically built on land parcels measuring anywhere between 40 acres and 3000 acres, depending on the local planning authority's rules ...

All India Congress Committee Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday charged the NDA government with failing to tackle unemployment and poverty even as he accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of making "empty promises." Speaking at a convention organised by the state unit of the Congress in Bengaluru, Rahul charged that instead of discharging his duties as prime minister, Modi is dividing the country, spreading hatred and ignoring the sufferings of the poor. Rahul, at the well-attended convention held at the NationalCollege Grounds, devoted a major part of his speech to target Modi.

He said Modi's Independence Day address from the Red Fort on Tuesday was short and lasted just 45 minutes. "Next year it will be 15 minutes because he is running out of things to say", he said.
