The Monsoon arrives in Kerala

The Statesman

Sunday morning papers report prominently on the fast moving BCCI scenario, with all eyes on Chennai today, where according to the Pioneer, an emergency working committee meeting is expected to show some clarity on BCCI President N. Srinivasan's fate. "Srinivasan sets terms for exit, BCCI members unwilling to play ball", is the lead headline in the Times of India.

The Statesman writes - 'seeking to give a renewed push to its priority 'National Food Security Bill', the Congress leadership has initiated fresh moves to work out a consensus with its Allies and Opposition parties that a special session of Parliament be convened on the bill's passage ahead of the monsoon session.

Mail Today and Indian Express reports the debate over BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate looks far from settled, with L.K. Advani stirring up the issue by heaping praise on MP Chief Minister Shivraj Chouhan, even comparing him with Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The next big thing on smart phones would be your favorite TV channels, with India's public broadcaster Prasar Bharati deciding to offer 8 to 10 channels, initially, at 40 locations including the metros and state capitals. 'Mobile Television' will become possible without compromising viewing quality, writes the Hindustan Times.

N.R. Narayana Murthy coming out of retirement at 66 to head Infosys again, is another big story in the Press. The Indian Express reports that Infosys has brought its iconic founder out of retirement to strengthen the company.

And finally, "The Monsoon arrives in Kerala". The Sunday Statesman say that Northern India experienced a slide in temperatures, even as the country's South welcomed the South-West monsoon - which set over Kerala and Lakhsadweep yesterday.
