A total 15 factories belong to the BSSC, out of which six sugar factories — Lauria, Sugauli, Bihta, Motipur, Raiyyam and... 

After Anna, the judiciary fires up politicians: ‘People will teach you a lesson’, they say!

After Anna, the judiciary fires up politicians: ‘People will teach you a lesson’, they say!   Judiciary: 'listen wise man" New Delhi: according to the latest press reports, soon after the MPs questioned the process of judicial appointments in the parliament, the Supreme Court seems to be hitting back with renewed vigour. A bench of Justice G S Singhvi and Justice H L Dattu recently made the strident statement ‘We have seen some enlightened people making comments that the standards of judiciary have gone down. Let those people cry from rooftops that the standards of judiciary... 

Ramadhar Singh’s return to the cabinet: Nitish’s management of upper caste angst!

Ramadhar Singh’s return to the cabinet: Nitish’s management of upper caste angst!   A balancing act Patna: as is well-known at least among the Biharis, whereas Laloo Yadav followed what may be called an exclusive style of caste politics, Nitish Kumar has chosen to follow the inclusive style, maintaining a balance between the upper, middle and the lower castes. In practice, this actually amounts to managing the anger and resentments among castes before they spill over and begin flooding the political arena in Bihar. Sushasan thus includes such management too and not simply effective governance.... 

‘Beware of friends’: city SP Lande’s advice to youth in light of new kidnapping trends!

‘Beware of friends’: city SP Lande’s advice to youth in light of new kidnapping trends!   Patna police: 'be suspicious!' Patna: in the light of the recent crime trends, the Patna SP Shivdeep Lande has been left with no choice but to advise the local youth and their parents to beware of friends. It is strange how a crime trend can affect the most mundane relationships in society – of all things friendships which are vital for a growing child. Friends often provide the youth with a family away from the family and a means of venting one’s frustrations and aspirations in life.... 

Batras [बतरस]-Two types of democracies: the rule-obsessed and the rule defying!

Ratnakar Tripathy Batras [बतरस] Two types of democracies: the rule-obsessed and the rule defying! By Ratnakar Tripathy This bat-ras is not about the Anna Hazare movement really but I intend to use it as an illustration to make my point. During the days of Anna’s fast, I found myself more preoccupied with how other people are reacting to the big and unavoidable and unignorable wave and less with formulating my own ‘correct’ views. I decided that events are moving too fast and it doesn’t really matter if I express my views day after tomorrow, rather than right now. Dialogue: mutual... 

Raghopur [Naugachia] embankment Damaged again: 90 crores spent and nothing changes!

Raghopur [Naugachia] embankment Damaged again: 90 crores spent and nothing changes!   Flood: Naugachhia Naugachhia: according to press reports, the damaged Raghopur embankment at Naugachia sub-division recently gave a lie to the claims of the state water resources department. This is significant since work to stop soil erosion by the Ganga at Raghopur embankment has been going on since 2007 and over Rs 90 crore has already been spent. A report in a Patna daily mentions that in 2007, the department had spent over Rs 13 crore for anti-erosion works. The entire structure was washed away along...

In this era of violent cinema, Karan Johar says he is unable to handle violent stories

In this era of violent cinema, Karan Johar says he is unable to handle violent stories Amitabh in original 'Agneepath' Mumbai: a curious admission was recently made by Filmmaker Karan Johar, who is currently engaged in the promotion of his new release Agneepath. Karan who is the producer of Agneepath, a remake of his father Yash Johar’s 1990 film of the same name, says he is unable to handle a script which has violence. To be unable to handle tales of violence and to be a big draw in Bollywood or indeed anywhere in the world seems to put Karan in a unique niche. One is compelled to...

JD [U] President Sharad Yadav’s popular speech in the parliament raises questions   Sharad Yadav: courting controversy! Patna: while Janata Dal (United) President Sharad Yadav regaled the parliament with his speech last Saturday, his statements have also led to what seems a double controversy. First, while Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, the de facto leader of JD [U] has supported Anna Hazare and his anti-corruption crusade, Yadav was found to be systematically ridiculing the Anna Hazare team and its campaigns. On August 24, while addressing a meeting of party office-bearers from districts...

The cricket board’s vice president Rajeev Shukla said that the BCCI is not keen on the move of coming under the RTI and also refused to comment on the specifics of the new sports bill.
