Air quality plummets, close to becoming 'very poor' 16.12.2017 DNA: India
A cold wave prevailed in the Capital for the second consecutive day on Friday with the air quality plummeting from Thursday's 265 units to 272 units. While the air quality is still in 'poor' category, it is close to reaching 'very poor' (300 units). While scientists at the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) said the air quality will fluctuate between 'poor and moderate', a further drop in temperature is likely over the coming fortnight. The maximum temperature on Friday was recorded at 19.5 degrees Celsius, a few notches above yesterday's 19.1 degrees Celsius, the lowest maximum the season has witnessed. "There will be shallow to dense fog with slight drop in temperature. Winds from the northern region are bringing the cold wave. The air quality may improve with more winds," said a CPCB official.

A Raj-era feast 15.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
On a warm autumn afternoon, as I walked down Esplanade, Kolkata, I noticed a line of customers outside a heritage food joint displaying a menu that read: "Mutton stew with bread". In my curiosity to know more, I asked an office-goer who was waiting in line about what the dish was exactly. Breaking into a smile, he said, "With the chill setting in, a steaming bowl of mutton stew cooked with vegetables is a satisfying lunch choice." Use of spices My mind instantly travelled back to the time when a bowl of some thick, flavourful and mildly-spiced mutton stew was savoured with bread by British officers stationed in India. This immunity-boosting mutton stew had all the traditional ingredients that were used by the chefs in the kitchens of British sahibs - mutton cubes, potatoes, carrots, cauliflower florets and beans, onion with a hit of green chillies and whole spices like cardamoms, cinnamon, peppercorns and bay leaf. Even today, traditional European cooking styles like slow-cooking and braising are ...

STP battle leaves officials in a bind 15.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Confusion reigns among officials a day after the government said it would relax rules making sewage treatment plants compulsory for apartment complexes. Minister K J George announced the suspension of the penalty clause on Thursday, but officials said they would have to follow contrary instructions from the National Green Tribunal. George, who handles the Bengaluru development and town planning portfolios, said contentious rules on STPs would be amended soon, and the BBMP would pass a resolution adopting them. Following a hue and cry over retrospective implementation of the STP rule, George said it would only be implemented prospectively. Older apartments, represented by the Bangalore Apartments Federation (BAF), had taken to the streets to oppose mandatory STPs for them. Apartment complexes with 20 houses or less, which have already linked their sewers to underground drainage, are exempted from installing compulsory STPs, George said. About 50+ blocks Reiterating what DH reported on December 14, BWSSB ...

Bhendi Bazaar: A model makeover 15.12.2017 DNA: Opinion
Bohri Mohalla is a nugget of heritage and culture nestled in the crowded market area of Bhendi Bazaar. If you have ever visited this neighbourhood and not devoured the succulent kebabs and tikkas of Haji Tikka Corner, your trip to this part of the city would be considered incomplete. Established in 1989, it is currently owned by Abdul Samad Qureshi, who is suffering a customer loss of nearly 50 per cent, thanks to the redevelopment project. Bhendi Bazaar, spread over a 16.5-acre land comprising more than 250 buildings, is undergoing one of the biggest redevelopment projects in India. The project which is being carried out by Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust (SBUT) has divided Bhendi Bazaar in nine clusters. Located in the heart of south Mumbai, Bhendi Bazaar is a shopper’s paradise. From carpets to hardware and antique pieces, the place has something to offer everyone. For the less-initiated, the Bhendibazaar gharana is one of the vocal gharanas of Indian classical music, which originated in Bhendi Bazaar ...
