    The front pages of most prominent dailies are splashed with the story of the United Kingdom exiting from European Union. "Europe loses British union" headlines the Tribune while under the caption, "UK CUTS EUROPE, BECOMES AN ISLAND", the Times of India says the world will never be the same again. Hindustan Times, under the headline, "Britain kisses EU goodbye, Indian markets in bear hug" writes that Severe Brexit jolt felt worldwide; Cameron to quit; fresh vote on Scottish independence now possible. Business Standard reports, "Rupee closes at 67.98; Pound falls to lowest since 1985 while The Hindu Business Line says "EU loses 1 GB, Cameron his job, and Sensex 604 points".
    Newspapers have also widely covered the scuttling of India's ambitions of joining the Nuclear Suppliers Group. The Asian Age says "India NSG bid runs into a great wall in Seoul. India's NSG hopes over; flays China, writes the Statesman.
    "Yet another Subramanian Swamy swipe at Jaitley, BJP headache gets worse". Under that headline, The Indian Express reports that senior BJP leaders have indicated that the party was “upset” with its Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy and that action could be taken against him if he did not stop his attacks on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and senior bureaucrats.
    The Pioneer writes that a 24-year-old woman employee of Infosys, Swathi, was murdered at the suburban Nungambakkam railway station in front of commuters waiting for their trains.
    In its bid to improve tertiary and secondary care in rural areas, the government is mulling a proposal, through which, in the next five years, 140 new medical colleges and an additional 14000 medical seats will be created, reports the Asian Age.
    And finally, a word of caution... Using your smartphone just before sleep may lead to temporary vision impairment. Researchers have found two women who were affected by transient smartphone “blindness” - a condition where they went blind in one eye after gazing at smartphones in the dark, writes The Indian Express.
