Will deadlock end? Govt calls Gurjar leaders for talks 13.5.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
With chances of another Gurjar agitation looming large, the state government has called for a dialogue with the community leaders. The Gurjar leaders will be holding a Mahapanchayat over quota demand on May 15 in Bayana town of Bharatpur.  As Gurjar leaders make their way to the spot, as a precautionary step the administration has suspended internet services, deployed additional forces and called for talks with the agitating leaders. There is, however, uncertainty surrounding the talks as the agitating leaders are insisting on ‘categorisation of reservation’ as before. “We have held several rounds of talks since the last agitation and another talk is unlikely to be fruitful as our leader Colonel Kirori Singh Bainsla has laid a deadline,” says leader of the agitation committee Himmat Singh Gurjar. “The administrative officials approached us for talks, but as of now we are not very optimistic about dialogue,” he added.

Inaugurating the 15th Asia Media Summit (AMS) 2018 here, she said the Indian media industry looked upon the digital world not only as a challenge but also as an opportunity.

Here's all you need to know about the tech that will help you stay online while flying 6.5.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
You may soon be able to call people up, send office emails, check Facebook as well as watch instant videos while air-borne, according to a proposal approved by the Telecom Commission allowing air travellers in India to access in-flight mobile and internet services.

What is in-flight internet technology? In-flight connectivity systems primarily use two kinds of technology. In the first, an onboard antenna picks up signals from the nearest tower on the ground. The connection will remain seamless up to a certain altitude unless the plane passes over an area without ground towers. In the second scenario, satellites beam signals directly to antennas installed on the airline. This is more effective when the airline is passing over a water body compared with ATG (air-to-ground)-based networks which use satellites to beam the signal first to a ...
