Mumbai Food: Andheri rooftop restaurant offers great food, warm service 15.12.2017 western suburbs
It's not often that we go to review a new restaurant and find ourselves on the waiting list, with six-odd people in line before us. But that's what happens when we arrive at RikÄ“ Terrace Bar and Grill, a new eatery located in a dimly lit bylane near Fun Republic in Andheri. Chicken Kebab An open terrace restaurant, Rike is quite literally a breath of fresh air. Relegated to the bar area, we sit atop high stools beneath the hanging wine glass racks and take in the ambience. The décor isn't crammed, with sufficient space between tables, and the crowd, much like the décor, is young, with 20-somethings dominating the scene. Baked potato bruschetta We sift through the food menu and order a baked potato bruschetta ('240; prices include service charge) from the Experiments with Potatoes section. The house fries ('240) are delivered within 15 minutes, by when we manage to get a table. The crispy fries are served in a mini commercial fryer, which shares space with three colourful dips on a wooden platter. It's ...

State largesse? No action against 3 'tainted' officers 12.12.2017

Jayachandra and DPAR Secretary Mr Anil Jha admitted that the Upa Lokayukta recommendation was not part of the Cabinet note, but said that the decision was taken based on the Revenue Department recommendation.

MLA P V Anwar's check dam to be demolished 12.12.2017
MALAPPURAM: The district disaster management authority headed by district collector Amit Meena on Monday ordered the demolition of a check dam illegally built at Cheenkannipali on Kakkadampoyil hills by a company partly owned by Mr P.V. Anwar MLA. The dam is part of the controversial park owned by the same company which is at the centre of a storm for the last few months for alleged constructions in the environmentally fragile area. The collector asked the land owner to demolish the illegal construction within two weeks, failing which the irrigation department will execute the order and realise the expenses from the land owner. A notice sent by the authority to the Vettilappara village authorities will be served on the land owners. The collector's order came after a report by the Perinthalmanna RDO K. Ajeesh on Friday saying that the construction was illegal. The report was based on a joint inspection carried out by the officers from the departments of geology, revenue, Kerala Water Authority ...

Two cauvery barrage shutters damaged 10.12.2017
SALEM: Close on the heels of a shutter giving away at the KRP dam in Krishnagiri district, leading to a huge discharge of water in the South Pennar river, two shutters of a barrage across the Cauvery river near Edappadi in Salem district were damaged on Saturday, hitting electricity generation at Poolampatti Piruvu check dam.   Sources said that water began to gush out on Saturday morning as two shutters on the Cauvery barrage had developed a leak.  About ten-ft of water stored in the check dam drained out, following the damage.  While electricity generation is being done in a small scale at various check dams along the Cauvery river, the one at Poolampatti Pirivu not only supports hydro-electricity production, but also facilitates boat service between Poolampatti and Nerinjipettai. Following the damage to the shutters, the boating service was also stopped. Public Works Department (PWD) officials rushed to the spot and have begun to repair repairing the damaged ...

‘Gujarat Model’ or ‘Gujarat Muddle’? Economist punches holes 26.11.2017 The Tribune
New Delhi, November 26 Development economist and activist Jean Dreze on Sunday said there was "no evidence" that the so-called "Gujarat Model" was a model in any sense, pointing out to the state's backwardness in social indicators. "If you look at almost any ranking of development indicators, whether it is social indicators, human development index, child development index, multi-dimensional poverty index and all the standard poverty indexes of the planning commission...Gujarat almost always comes around the middle," said the noted economist at Times LitFest here. It was the case much before Narendra Modi became chief minister and it remained the case after that, said Dreze, who helped draft the first version of NREGA (now called the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act). Dreze, who once wrote an article titled "Gujarat Muddle", recalls that the term, "Gujarat model", was coined around the time of the last Lok Sabha elections (2014). He describes the model as a counter-example, because ...
