Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday called for strict action against those indulging in moral policing in the State. He was speaking at a ceremony at the Raj Bhavan to award the President's Medal to 47 officers. "We live in a diverse society which expects the police to be responsible. Certain groups have been trying to take law into their hands in the name of moral policing. The police should take stringent action against such elements," he said. Siddaramaiah called upon the police to sharpen their skills to tackle new trends in crime. "Self-satisfaction is the best award for policemen at the end of their service.

Rocking the scene 26.11.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Athird-year electronics and communication student of Cambridge Institute of Technology, Darshan decided to learn the guitar while he was in his pre-university days. His favourite song 'Hallowed Be Thy Name' and his group of friends, whom he calls the 'metalheads', inspired him all the more. He started going to an academy for classes and once he picked up the basics, he decided to pursue guitar on his own. With the help of his seniors, who were well-versed with the instrument, he became even better at it. He started looking for the chords of different songs online and practised for four hours everyday. All the hard work paid off as Darshan is now the guitarist of one of the leading bands in the City, 'Errorz'. He has also been conducting classes for a few students for the last six months and loves teaching part-time as he feels that the more he teaches, the more he learns. His inspirations are 'Lamb of God', 'Megadeth' and 'Iron Maiden' and he first wanted to learn the drums but couldn't afford a drum ...
