He beat cancer but Quit this battle


The government's rejecting of the CAG's estimate of a presumptive loss of rupees 1.86 lakh crores on coal block allocation is a front page story in almost all papers.

The disruption of Parliament proceedings and related stories have been taken up by papers too. "Monday parleys to make or break this session" writes the Pioneer while the Indian Express says, "Silenced in the House, PM may address nation on coal charges".

"SC clears Chidambaram in 2G", says the Indian Express. Other papers covering the story report that this ruling has come as a major relief to the UPA.

Cyclist Lance Armstrong being stripped of his unparalleled seven Tour de France titles by the US Anti Doping Agency, after he declared that 'he would stop fighting the drug charges the organisation had laid', has been reported by most papers. "He beat cancer but Quit this battle" writes the Times of India in a related story.

"No free excess baggage on Air India" writes the Hindustan Times, reporting that Aviation Minister Ajit Singh has directed Air India to completely ban the allowing of free excess baggage on both Domestic and International flights.

Under the Headline " Norway killer sane, jailed for maximum term", the Times of India writes that Anders Behring Breivik was denied the insanity ruling, which prosecutors hoped would show that his massacre of 77 people was the work of a madman, not that of an anti Muslim crusade.

And finally, the Times of India writes that the origins of language as diverse as Hindi, Russian, German and English have been traced to Anatolia in present day Turkey, with researchers' saying that this Indo-European family of language spread out from the Western Asian region about 8000 to 9500 years ago.
