Vivacious Windies take on meticulous English in finals

Vivacious Windies take on meticulous English in finals


    Arrests made in connection with the collapse of an under-construction flyover in Kolkata dominates the front pages. "Kolkata toll 24, 3 officials held on murder charges" reports the Tribune. Adding a twist to this tragedy, the Pioneer writes "TMC MP claims Mamata Government was alerted about faulty design".
    Prime Minister Narendra Modi's comments at a dinner hosted by US President Barack Obama for world leaders attending the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington are prominently noticed. The Times of India quotes Mr Modi as saying "State sponsored nuclear terror biggest risk". The Hindustan Times writes "Drop notion that his terrorist is not mine, says PM at nuclear summit".
    Most papers take note of the Bombay High Court order on ending gender discrimination with regard to entry of women to religious places. The Times of India quotes the Court as saying "Women have same right as men to enter temples".
    Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband's stand on the chanting of "Bharat Mata ki Jai" is widely reported. "Darul Uloom issues fatwa against 'Baharat Mata' slogan" states the Pioneer. The Asian Age writes "BJP, Sena slam Deoband over Baharat Mata edict".
    With larger pictorial warnings on cigarette packets set to kick in from April 1, tobacco majors have taken a very drastic step. The Pioneer reports "All cigarette factories to shut in protest, lose  350 crores Rupees a day".
    The death of Pratyusha Banerjee, a very popular TV artist is taken note of by all the papers. The Hindustan Times  reports "Pratyusha Banerjee of Balika Vadhu fame commits suicide".
    And finally... the Times of India highlights an interesting statistic as it writes "Shot in the arm for government as Aadhar enrolment hits 1 billion". The paper adds "can save upto  70 Thousand crores Rupees a year in government schemes".
