Ryder Cup 2014: Gleneagles will be a worthy setting to produce drama 21.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
The seeds of the famous tournament were planted on the Kings Course in 1921, even before the opulent hotel opened For the duration of the 40th Ryder Cup, the cream of European and American golf will have the run of the Gleneagles Hotel. It is a fitting place for first-class sporting talent to be holed up: a luxurious five-star pile in verdant Perthshire countryside, elegant suites, roaring fires, a restaurant with two Michelin stars, fine wines, holistic spa, rare single malts, corridors as wide as fairways, carpets as thick as rough. It has been good enough in the past for prime ministers, presidents, chancellors and Jackie Stewart. A study in opulence. It has not always been like this. Back in June 1921, the brand new Kings Course at Gleneagles hosted a lucrative new event, the One Thousand Guineas Tournament.

Water shortage at its peak in city 21.9.2014 Asian Age: Delhi
As the monsoon exits, water shortage is at its peak in the national capital. While Delhi has had water troubles for decades, the shortage has become critical in recent years with little or no planning, even as the city’s population has grown manifold. While the population is a major problem, NGOs blame the mismanagement of the water resources. An estimated 2,000 illegal tankers ply on the capital’s roads every day, lifelines to millions whose taps have run dry, and symptoms of a much bigger problem, the city’s desperately dysfunctional water system. Experts feel the Delhi Jal Board should identify reasons for the tanker mafia as they believe there is no shortage of water. The scenario is worse for colonies living on the edge since they have no option but to contact the mafia for their daily supply of water. In a slum in Vasant Kunj, a woman complained that even though the tankers arrive daily, they bring no respite to people here. “We are hardly able to get 3-4 litres of water, so we have no option but ...
