Knowledge Traditions and Practices of India


Changes made in the Coalgate draft report and the CBI closing in on the postings racket in the Railways, are highlights in today's press. "CBI contradicts Law Minister and Attorney General - tells Supreme Court they altered report", is the top Times of India headline, and regarding the 'Cash -for-posting's scam', Hindustan Times writes 'Bansals nephew promised post, says CBI'.

Mail Today reports, "Supreme Court go-ahead to Kudankulam Power Project Plant". The Supreme Court has cleared the decks for making the nuclear power plant in Tamil Nadu operational. It upheld the government stand that a delicate balance has to be struck between ecological impact and development, after relevant authorities 'clear' its commissioning.

"Will India concede some Chinese demands?", questions the Asian Age. The Chinese demand, made ahead of the mutual withdrawal that India dismantle its bunkers and other infrastructure in the sensitive Chumar sector of these demands.

"Syrian rebels may have used chemical weapons", reports the Hindu. A top UN human rights investigator has exploded a bombshell, pointing out the likelihood of the use of chemical weapons such as Sarin gas by the Syrian opposition and not by the government authorities.

Hindustan Times writes that "Fed up with the increase in incidents of drunken brawls aboard the plush metro coaches, especially during late evening hours, the Delhi Metro had decided to start using breath analyzer tests to screen passengers, forbidding truants from boarding the train.

And finally, Mail Today informs us that the CBSE has decided to introduce an elective course called 'Knowledge Traditions and Practices of India".
