India has the world's most toxic air


The truce between the Unique Identification Authority of India and the Union Home Ministry is given prominence in today's papers. The turf war, over who will collect biometric data of the country's 1.2 billion residents, was amicably resolved on Friday, writes the Financial Express. 'PC, Nilekani end UDI Tiff: to split Data collection', headlines the Economic Times.
Mail Today reports that though there were smiles and chants of Hindi Chini Bhai-Bhai after the mid-January Sino Indian talks in Delhi - the boundary dialogue actually ended up in a deadlock, after Beijing declared it would settle for nothing less than 'its share' of Arunachal Pradesh.
"Twitter offers to block illegal posts", is the headline in the Times of India. The Asian Age writes that Twitter, the microblogging website, says it has devised a technology that can selectively censor or block 'tweets', on a country-by-country basis.
On India's dismal performance at the cricket test in Australia the Indian Express writes, 'In Australia today, the end of agony --- and that of an era.' The Times of India writes, "Dravid likely to retire soon, Laxman next?" 
'Its Official', writes the Hindu. 'India has the world's most toxic air', according to a new study by the Yale and Colombia University, and comes last among 132 nations.
And finally, the Economic Times tells us that on the 11th day of the 11th month of 2011 at 11.11 a.m., Siddharth Yog, 38-year old founder of the Xander Group, gifted 11 million dollars as Guru Dakshina to his professor Arthur Segel at the Harvard Business School, making this the single largest personal gift an Indian has made to Harvard University.
