News / Mid-Day/ News  
Ordinary to extraordinary, every road has a story behind its name. That of Lady Jamshedji Road in Mahim is warmer than most. Distraught after miscarrying the daughters she conceived, Lady Avabai Jamshedji Jeejeebhoy, wife of First Baronet, Sir Jamshedji Jeejeebhoy, prayed at Mount Mary Church. Local Kolis rowed her to it in a boat between Salsette and Mahim islands. When a child survived, in the 1840s she donated R1,57,000 to construct the Mahim Causeway, bridging the dangerous swampy distance, vitally linking south to north Bombay. Random "development" ruins the serene palm wadi that Mahim thought it could remain. But a dense cosmopolitanism, from St Michael's Church to Victoria Church, lends this communally vibrant stretch of LJ Road a certain beauty. Devotees kneel at pews surrounded by the sound of the call to azaan, even as Maharashtrian wedding revellers halt mid-dance for a Christian funeral procession. Under the Muslim rulers of Gujarat, at the tomb of Sufi saint Hazrat Makhdoo..

A pastoral letter by the head of the Syro-Malabar Church Cardinal Mar George Alencherry stating that there is 'love jihad' in Kerala was read out in churches here on Sunday."Growing love jihad is endangering religious harmony. Love jihad causes Christian girls to be recruited to terrorist organizations such as the Islamic State. The authorities should take immediate action. The church will educate parents and children about love jihad," the letter stated.However, the letter was not read in most churches under Ernakulam-Angamaly archdiocese.Earlier on January 15, Syro-Malabar Church synod in an official statement alleged that 'love jihad' was indeed happening and this has become a channel of recruitment to the Islamic State and other radical Islamic organizations.Meanwhile, Father Kuriakose Mundadan, a senior priest of the Ernakulam-Angamaly archdiocese and former secretary of Presbyterian Council, in an article sharply criticised synod's statement and pointed out that even the courts ...

Deepika asks TikTok influencer to recreate 'Chhapaak' 'look', draws social media ire

Business / Business Standard/ General News  
Actor Deepika Padukone is at the centre of a social media storm after she was slammed for a TikTok video, where she challenges an influencer to recreate her acid attack survivor 'look' from her latest film "Chhapaak". The TikTok challenge thrown by the 34-year-old actor was called "insensitive", "crass" and the "worst kind of a promotion". In a 39-second video that went viral on social media on Saturday, Deepika is seen asking make-up artiste Faby to recreate her "three favourite looks" from her films. Faby recreates the actor's looks from her 2007 debut "Om Shanti Om" and 2015's "Piku". However, her attempt at recreating the actor's 'look' from "Chhapaak", in which Deepika plays Malti, an acid attack survivor, was criticised on social media. Directed by Meghna Gulzar, the film is based on the life of acid attack survivor-activist Laxmi Agarwal and released on January 10. Many called out the actor for trivialising the trauma of an acid attack survivor by categorising the part as a .....

Actor Varun Dhawan says at a time when the audience is exposed to different kinds of cinema at the click of a button, the onus is on the filmmakers and artistes to up their game by more than a margin. The actor, who is the son of filmmaker David Dhawan, said even during the 1990s, his father had to be "careful" about making the right choices. "Audience has always been smarter than the makers. Even during my dad's time he had to be careful while making films and even now we have to be, we will always have to be careful while making our choices. "Today the consumer has a big choice with films, TV, OTT and international films. So you are competing at a very large level, you better get it right," Varun told PTI in an interview.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday assured parents that as long as his "honest government" is in power in the national capital, no private school will be allowed to arbitrarily increase fees. He said like the last five years, his government will continue to control the school fees in Delhi. "As long as there is an honest government in Delhi, parents need not worry. No private school in Delhi will be allowed to arbitrarily decide its fees. Like the last five years, we will continue to control the fees," Kejriwal said in a tweet in Hindi. His comments came ahead of the February 8 Delhi Assembly polls.

Later in May that year, the government also directed 575 private schools to refund the excess fees charged -- between June 2016 to January 2018 -- with 9 per cent interest...

Steel industry seeks duty cut on key raw materials in Budget

an hour ago  
Business / Business Standard/ General News  
The domestic steel industry is seeking reduction in basic customs duty on key raw materials such as coking coal, pet coke, limestone and dolomite in the upcoming Budget. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is scheduled to present the Budget for financial year 2020-21 on February 1. "Anthracite coal, coking coal, coke, limestone, dolomite are vital inputs for the steel industry. The availability of these items in good quality is declining in the country and the industry has to depend on imports on regular basis," industry body Ficci said in its Budget recommendations for Indian steel sector. The basic customs import duty on anthracite coal is 2.5 per cent. Since ferro alloy industry plays a vital role in steel manufacturing, it is necessary to make available these reductants at international competitive price to make Indian steel mills more competitive, it said while recommending that customs duty on anthracite coal be reduced to zero from 2.5 per cent. Met coke, another vital input .....

Business / Business Standard/ General News  
Ahead of a special session of Andhra Pradesh Assembly called to decide on a proposal to have three capitals, TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday urged Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy not to shift the state capital from Amaravati, warning that about Rs 50,000 crore committed investment could be withdrawn and also make farmers suffer. Denying any "irregularities" in the decision making for Amaravati as capital during his tenure, Naidu asserted he does not have any "vested interest" in Amaravati, saying his party is fighting to control further damage of the state. Alleging that Andhra Pradesh is on "the path of destruction", Naidu said if the present government -- which is already in debt -- does not honour the agreements, it will dent the image of the state and investors will lose confidence for future investment. The YSRCP government, which took over in May last year, has alleged irregularities by the previous Naidu government in awarding contracts and in allotting prime lands..
