  • Illicit gold: India's smugglers shut out refiners, banks

    By Rajendra Jadhav MUMBAI (Reuters) - Indian gold refiners just months ago were ramping up capacity and struggling to secure enough ore from miners. Gold importing banks and big jewellers have also been hit by the growing entry of illicit gold, which avoids import duties and makes its way on to the so-called "grey market" where it is sold to end-users at a discount. Smuggled gold could account for more than a third of demand this year in India - the world's second-biggest buyer of the metal after China - potentially costing the government over $1 billion in lost revenue.

The shock of "folding out like a telescope" apparently made Alice forget her English. As for us, we've forgotten all our grammar and syntax at the latest developments in the Padmavati case. Let's do a whirlwind recap of the story so far: Sanjay Leela Bhansali wanted to make Padmavati — a film that is based on his opera-ballet of the same name from 2008.

  • When Her Father Refused to Build Her a Toilet, Panchayat Officials Gifted Her One In Just a Day!

    A 16-year-old girl, whose father refused to build a toilet for her and her mother, received a surprise gift from panchayat officials who built her a toilet in one day. Sunitha, of Kukkodu village near Mudigere in Karnataka, had been trying to convince her father to have a toilet constructed at home. But her father, an alcoholic who would drink his earnings away, was hostile to the idea. Image for representation purpose only Frustrated by the situation, Sunitha spoke with a visiting team of panchayat officials, led by Taluk Panchayat executive officer M.N. Gurudath. They tried to convince Sunitha's father Sheshe Gowda to use funding from the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan to build a toilet. But Gowda refused, leaving his daughter in tears. “We were moved by what we saw. We decided to do it ourselves. We collected tools from the neighbourhood and started digging work and summoned the material needed. The girl left for her morning class. When she returned, the toilet was nearly ready,” Mr. Gurudath told The Hindu. “Using a couple of masons, we laid the foundation and completed the walls. I will never forget the joy in her eyes when she saw it,” added Gurudath. He and the other officers have pooled in their personal funds to cover the Rs. 22,000 cost of building the toilet, leaving the Rs. 12,000 subsidy granted under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan for Sunitha's education.
