    India's bid to join the Nuclear Suppliers Group in the run-up to the group's plenary, is the lead in many papers today.
    The Hindustan Times headlines "China now says NSG door open" as it tones down opposition to India's bid, hours after US reiterates support. The Asian Age states "China rigid, Pakistan says NSG bid blocked." The Times of India asks "Amid China hostility, will US pull it off for India at NSG meet?"
    Yoga Day celebrations receive front page attention. The Times of India carries a photograph with the caption "Height of Enthusiasm: Yoga at Siachen". The Pioneer notes "Capital buzzes with 'Om'  " as a different Connaught Place came alive on Tuesday.
    Japanese Giant "SoftBank's Arora rides into sunset" reports the Financial Express, a story covered prominently by most papers. The Hindustan Times says, Nikesh Arora, who wrote fat cheques for Indian start-ups such as Snapdeal & Ola, steps down.
    "New ad policy a shot in the arm for news agency linked to RSS" says The Hindustan Times, adding that a new policy on print media advertisements has included Hindustan Samachar as one of the three news agencies that newspapers could subscribe to score points to qualify for govt ads.
    " 'Made in India' F-16s on radar, thanks to FDI". The Hindu informs, US firm Lockheed Martin may make use of liberalised norms to produce F-16 fighters in an assembly line based in India.
    The Hindustan Times also notes "Government job test scores to go online to check fudging."
    And finally, "Hot climate is bad for your kidneys". The Hindu Business Line quotes a recent study finding that hard work in the hot climate left workers dehydrated, putting a heavy strain on their kidneys. So drink lots of water to beat the heat!
