Fast ends, politics begins


The second medal winner for India, Vijay Kumar, seems to be the man of the moment, with his picture splashed across the front pages of most dailies.  'Vijay Kumar gives India a silver lining' is the headline in the Tribune.  'Vijay diwas for India at London' is how the Pioneer puts it.
'Saina runs into China wall' writes the Indian Express of her losing in the semi-finals.  'Golden hopes dashed, Saina targets bronze' says the Hindustan Times.
The cabinet fixing 14000 crore rupees as base price for spectrum auction has not been received well 'Leaves operators fuming' says the Business Standard.  'Mobile companies disappointed, say high price will lead to increase in tariffs' writes the Business line of the Hindu.
Many dailies show Anna Hazare with former Army Chief Gen. V.K. Singh, as the social activist called off his ann-shan.  'Fast ends, politics begins' is the Hindu headline.  'Team Anna to float political party, draws 2014 battle lines' writes the Hindustan Times.
With scanty rainfall, 'a third of the country faces drought like scenario' says the Business Standard.  'Deficient rains lower growth forecast to 6 per cent' writes the Asian Age.
Sanjeev Nanda, of the in famous BMW hit-and-run case getting reprieve figures in most dailies.  He now has to pay 50 lakh rupees and do community service for two years, report the papers.
Two fully grown teeth in an eye tumour?  Sounds impossible - but it's true.  Doctors in Chennai have successfully operated a lady, for this rare disease called orbital teratoma, writes the Times of India.
And finally, call it emancipation of women, or whatever you want to.  The Times of India on its front-page reports of 800 requests in just 2-years, from the fairer sex, for arms licences.  A cartoon shows a trigger happy woman saying 'Now I'll be calling the shots.'!
