Coming worst summer in 160 years


Food inflation rate turning negative features prominently in the Hindustan Times and the Statesman 'Food prices drop for the first time in 6 years' writes the Times of India, but adds that 'inflation in low, yet prices pinch as rising cost of living overshadows drop in veggie prices'.

A problem of plenty "Surplus crops sow trouble for farmers", writes the Hindustan Times, adding that 'With prices plummeting to record low on account of good production and oversupply in markets, farmers are now going for distress selling'.

Kingfisher in doldrums? Is it bad times for the king of good times? 'DGCA gives Kingfisher 3 days to come up with safety plan' writes the Times of India, adding that the airline could be shut down, if these issues were not addressed satisfactorily.

Vis-a-vis the 2G scam, 'Supreme Court seeks government, CBI response on Essar, loop' writes the Hindustan Times.

Most papers have reported about day one of the Auto Expo. 'Its a glitz blitz at the Expo' says the Times of India. "B-Town rocks motown' writes Mail Today, as it has pictures of various bollywood actors posing with the luxury cars. Even the Economics Times has taken this as its lead, as it shows Ratan Tata and Cyrus Mistry posing with the new Tata Safari Storme. The headline in the paper reads "Nano is not a flop, just an opportunity wasted: Tata"

'Team Anna confused, does not know the way forward' is the Times of India headline. The Hindustan Times, the Hindu and the Indian Express report that Anna will not campaign in the 5 poll bound states due to ill health.

And finally, "Coming worst summer in 160 years", writes the Mail Today of the study by the UK MeT office and predicts record high global temperatures since 1850.
