'After spring, Egypt feels the heat', writes the Pioneer. The paper adds a senior judge Adly Mansor was sworn-in as Egypt's interim President to replace Islamist President Mohammed Morsi as the military launched a major crackdown against the Muslim brotherhood.

According to Mail Today, the Union Cabinet may have given its nod to the food security ordinance but the UPA government's 'game-changer' will still take six to nine months for the on-ground roll out as its beneficiaries are yet to be identified by the states. This story has been covered under the headline 'Food bill in pregnant pause.'

The Hindustan Times front page headline reads, 'China breathes fire, greets Antony with border warning'. The paper has shown the photograph of Luo Yuan, Mayor General in the Chinese Army and prominently placed his quote which reads 'The Indian side should not provoke new problems and increase military deployment at the border areas and stir up new trouble', this, hours before defence Minister A K Antony was to land in Beijing.

The Supreme Court has held that employees do not have a right to seek the benefits of voluntary retirement schemes and that the decision taking power lies only with the employer firm reports the Asian Age.

The Hindu on its front page has quoted Union Minister for Law and Justice Kapil Sibal wherein he has said the government may not press ahead with a clause in the draft Judicial Accountability Bill that seeks to curb  casual observations (Obiter dicta) made by senior judges against the legislature and the executive.

And finally, the death of Douglas Engelbart, the visionary electrician engineer who invented the computer mouse decades before the influx of personal computers into homes and workplace has been reported by almost all newspapers.
