Coldest day in 44 years takes Delhi deaths to 20


    The dipping Mercury in Delhi is the lead headline in many papers. 'Coldest day in 44 years takes Delhi deaths to 20', writes The Hindustan Times, while the Pioneer says, 'Delhi Trembles as 44 years record broken'. 'Nitin's in again', reads the headline in the Mail Today; the paper adds, 'Gadkari weathers opposition to be firm favorite for second innings as BJP Boss, but will need Modi's backing'.
    Describing as 'untenable' Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's objections to the appointment of Justice R A Mehta as Lokayukta by Governor Kamla Beniwal, The Tribune writes, 'SC upholds appointment of Gujarat Lokayukta; Set back for Modi as court terms his objections unjustified'.
    Referring to the murdered 23 year old woman, The Indian Express writes that exhausted by the endless, unwanted attention, all the fake names thought up by media organizations for her, and the manner in which the horrific tragedy is being made into a spectacle, the harassed family of the victim pleads; 'Just leave us alone'.
    In the case of the alleged sexual assault of a 17 year old South Delhi Public School student, the Times of India writes that the case underlines the perils that social networking sites pose to vulnerable Teenagers. It was a Facebook friendship that pulled the girl into the sordid quagmire. In another report, the paper highlights the new dangers in the lives of net savvy teenagers and a need to sensitize kids and parents about cyber laws and use and abuse of the Internet.
    The Hindustan Times writes that India is expected to have close to 165 million mobile Internet users by March 2014, up from 87.1 million in December 2012.
    And finally, the Times of India says, 'Myth busted; Smoking can't relieve stress'. The paper reports that contrary to popular opinion, quitting smoking relives stress. This has been shown by a study by UK researchers.
