There's not a day that passes that I'm not flabbergasted by at least one news article. Here's a selection of news from today's main section of the paper:
That is to say that there are no repercussions for candidates running for political office who falsify their papers when they file to run. (this is especially pertainant to the case of an apparantly highly corrupt chief minister)
This to escape the hotel owner who "misbehaved with her in the early hours" of the morning
The day before a bunch of multi-story houses began cracking then collapsed after the BBMP (municipal gov't) began construction of a storm water drain and retaining wall near the houses. Although BBMP is calling them encroachments, several of the owners have ownership paperwork and property tax receipts (presumably paid to the BBMP?)
The pillion rider was on a bike that rammed the divider, the pedestrian was "knocked down" by a city bus
The minister of medicine and a few other politicians went into the sterile neonatal ICU unit (without scrubbing in or putting on the required sterile outerwear) for a photo shoot on the occasion of giving public money for new healthcare facilities
The highest number in a single day
Labourers and small farmers have no work during these very dry months and flock to cities in an effort to continue to feed their families
MLAs pummel policeman
After stopping a MLA (legislator) for speeding, a cop followed him to the assembly premises and waited for the MLA in the visitors' gallery. Enraged, the MLA and colleagues attacked him, sending him to the hospital. The cop was put on forced leave after the incident.
A follow-up story on the attack in Tamil Nadu on a Sri Lankan Buddist monk who has been studying in India for 1.5 years and was on a school fieldtrip from Delhi to learn about South India architecture. Tamil-rights groups beat him up and stoned the bus that he was riding on with fellow classmates in protest of Sri Lanka's treatment of ethnic Tamils
Uh, yeah, up until this point they weren't. And opposition groups were able to water-down the acid attack part so that you won't face life imprisonment for throwing acid on someone's face.
Encroachment is a big deal here. Over 1,000 houses have been erected on this historic landmark.
