Kill Bill and plead not guilty


"Kill Bill and plead not guilty", screams the headline of Mail Today, a day after the Rajya Sabha was adjourned sine die with the Lokpal Bill battle remaining inconclusive as a no-holds-barred war of words broke out between the UPA government and the opposition. Most papers have headlined similar sentiments after the Lokpal Bill was laid to rest. The opposition and the UPA now blame each other for the Rajya Sabha fiasco. The Asian Age appropriately states "War of the blames begins".
The devastation caused by Cyclone Thane has also been frontlined by almost all newspapers. The Tribune on its front page has shown photographs of a merchant vessel that has run aground on Marina Beach due to gutsy winds trigged by "Thane".
In Economic News, the Business Standard writes that Government loses 5 lakh crore rupees in stock market in 2011 and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Indias top software exporter, has become the country's most valued company by elbowing out the Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) from the top spot.
Bon Voyage Metro man, says The Pioneer to the eminent civil engineer, efficient administrator and firm believer - E. Sreedharan - the architect of the new age transport system, Delhi Metro, as he steps down as Chief Executive  today.
The Times of India has reported that given the size of our population, one would have thought Indians get enough romance. But that does not stop us searching for more. Data collected by Google shows that in 2011, seven Indian cuties were in the list of top ten cities world wide where the "sex" query was most popular.
