On the fourth anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, many papers scrutinise the country's preparedness to meet future security challenges. "Four years later, Mumbai still vulnerable to sea attack" reports the Asian Age on its front page.  The Tribune writes "Mumbai CCTVs stuck in red tape".  The Hindustan Times however observes "Silver lining:Systems in place, weapons upgraded".  
Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde's remarks on the death penalty, just days after the hanging of Ajmal Kasab, are the front page lead in the Indian Express.  The paper writes "Need to rethink death penalty, says Shinde ; says eminent persons want ban on capital punishment".
The bilateral Strategic Economic dialogue between India and China starting today is highlighted in many papers. "India looks to China to put high speed trains on track" reports the Indian Express. 
In a special front page story, the Hindu reports that an expert group set up by the Irish government to review the country's anti-abortion regime has recommended legislation for the 'limited provision' of abortion.
The Hindu's Business Line highlights a report by Morgan Stanley which states that India is expected to register a gradual recovery in growth to 6.1% in 2013 driven by positive impact from policy actions.
