Vehicles Older Than 15 Years Won't Be Allowed In Delhi, Says Green Court

"

"All vehicles, diesel or petrol, which are more than 15 years old, shall not be permitted to ply on the roads.  This direction would be applicable to all vehicles without exception i.e. two wheelers, three wheelers, four wheelers, light vehicles and heavy vehicles irrespective of whether commercial or otherwise," the bench said.

ROTFL. Implement kar ke dikhaao tou maane.

The only way this will work - If the court / administration sets the implementation time-table / schedule / deadline to be 15-20 Years from now.

Stupidity Of The Central Government Continues

"

The government said in court today that these students will immediately be taught - and tested on - a beginners' or entry-level course in Sanskrit, and will therefore not be at a disadvantage since they will not be expected to demonstrate proficiency in the language.

For those of you who are not familiar with the issue - Smriti Kutti Stupid Randi Jaahil Irani said the KV's (all over India) teaching German will have to stop the course and teach Sanskrit instead [Link].

The KV's opposed it and so did the parents. They were told to shut up (even when they pointed out that switching this in between the academic year was idiotic and would give kids a tough time, especially the ones who have been studying German in previous years and now will have to give a Sanskrit exam). It was said that German could NOT be taught as a third language and will have to be taught as 'hobby' course if the KV's are interested.

Seems like the Central Government is sticking by it's stupid HRD Minister's idiotic view and now the assholes are saying students will be taught Sanskrit IMMEDIATELY and tested on entry-level. Funny how they did not consider this idea for the CSAT issue - where this approach was actually applicable!

More Nonsense On The Black Money Issue

No they have NOT. There is a significant difference between having a Foreign Bank Account and having Black Money. Those accounts may just be the types that are provided exemption under various directions issued by the RBI. It is premature to state that those accounts have Black Money without an actual investigation. What you have is a list of Indians with foreign bank accounts (that too from just a few foreign banks).

On the eve of the sixth anniversary of the Mumbai terror attacks, the government on Tuesday said that the overall coastal and maritime security along the entire coast is "much stronger than before" as several steps have been taken in this regard.

"At any given time, the entire west coast is under continuous surveillance by ships and aircraft of the Navy and Coast Guard", an official statement released late on Tuesday evening said.

… It added, that since 2008, coastal and maritime security has been strengthened substantially by "successful" implementation of technical, organisational and procedural initiatives by all maritime security agencies.

… After the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai in 2008, several measures were announced by the government to strengthen coastal and maritime security along the entire coast. "Due to the coordinated efforts of all concerned, all these measures are now in place and overall maritime security is much stronger than before," the statement said.

Coastal patrolling by Navy, Coast Guard and marine police has increased sharply over the last few years. "As a result, potential threats have been detected and actions have been taken to mitigate them in good time," the statement said.

Coordination between nearly 15 national and state agencies has improved dramatically due to regular "exercises" conducted by the Navy in all coastal states, the statement said. Nationwide, over 100 such exercises have been conducted till date since 2008, it added.

Interesting.

I do have a question though. Were all of the 'several steps' - mentioned by the government in the official statement, taken after 16-05-2014?

[Sarcasm]

No?! How come!!? The infallible PM Modi had said that NOTHING in the past 60 years, the Congress has done nothing. Then how can his government issue an official statement stating that things have actually improved on ANY front? Nahin!!! Ye kya hogaya?! Did someone contradict the great PM Modi?! Itni jurrat!

Perhaps a Modi stooge spokesperson should clarify that all credit should go to the Navy and NOT to the THEN government. Making it clear that the official statement used the reference 'government' in general terms and people interpreting it as the previous government are obviously misconstruing the remarks.

[/Sarcasm]

A suggestion - Modi and the rest of his BJP minions (literate or otherwise) should realise that they are no longer the opposition party and therefore no longer need to resort to bashing the Congress on every podium.

What is however interesting to note is that TOI has reported on the state of security as well - Tighter security not in place even six years after 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai
