Pre-monsoon repairs cancelled, motorists to suffer 28.6.2017 DNA: India
Call it irony, but two weeks after the monsoon arrived in Mumbai, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has decided to abandon the pre-monsoon road repairs work for Eastern and Western Express Highways. The reason — Lukewarm response by the contractors. The Public Works Department (PWD) handed over both highways in April this year to MMRDA for repairs. As the monsoon was nearing, the authority decided to award contracts for desilting nullahs along the highways, resurfacing of few stretches on service roads that were in bad shape as well as potholes that may crop up during the monsoon. However, no contractor showed any interest in the Rs 13 crore bids for the work that should have ideally been completed before the monsoon. Bids were invited only in the last week of April and the bidders had one week to submit their proposals. However, despite four extensions, MMRDA failed to get any response. As a result, your ride on EEH and WEH will remain bumpy. Dilip Kawathkar, joint project ...

Be rain ready! 27.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Rainy days are a pleasure when you are at home, reading your favourite book, sipping a cup of coffee and munching hot 'pakodas'. The real struggle is when you need to step out of your crash pad. Since the climate is so gloomy, one tends to wear colours that are muted, unconsciously. Ditch the light colours; add a splash of bright colour to your outfit to make it exciting and complete the look with shrugs, scarves, waterproof accessories and footwear. Monsoon staples Flip flops: From platform to bling straps, there is a wide variety to choose from. Flip flops can be worn with dresses, pants or anything that you wish to. Shorts: Opt for thick fabrics in synthetic blends that can dry faster. This can be in solids or prints. Shorts are versatile too — you can team them up with a blazer for work, a simple tee or a dressy blouse. Boots: Ditch the leather boots in Monsoon and go for rubber or plastic boots. They are the only means to keep your favourite jeans from getting wet. Moreover, it also makes ...
