Vintage Sachin shows his class, set for grand exit


    British Prime Minister David Cameron's visit to India is prominently noticed on the front pages of most papers. "British PM meets Manmohan, allays concerns on student visas" reports the Tribune. The Statesman writes, "Cameron bats for FDI in retail". On the possibility of his meeting BJP's Prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, the Hindustan Times observes, "Open to meeting Modi, says Cameron".

    Highlighting Samajwadi Party leader Naresh Agarwal's 'tea-seller' barb aimed at Narendra Modi the Pioneer writes "Civility takes a nosedive in political discourse". Another evidence of this trend is reported in the Indian Express which writes "Modi's latest: 'If Madam is ill, let the child take over". The Statesman observes "Congress demands Modi apology for comments on Rahul, Sonia".

    The Hindustan Times informs us of the Supreme Court's observations regarding the increasing number of acquittals in criminal cases in a judgement delivered recently. It reports the top court as saying "Lack of law on witness safety spurs acquittals".

    The Times of India highlights a Bombay high Court ruling which says that Indian parents should be given first preference in child adoption over NRIs, Overseas Citizens of India and foreign nationals.

    And finally, pictures of cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar executing classy strokes as he plays his last Test match in Mumbai are splashed across the front pages most the papers. The Tribune says "Vintage Sachin shows his class, set for grand exit".
