This article from today’s Hindu raised more questions (e.g., what happened?) than it answered (e.g. nothing):
Gang hacks patient in GH
A gang of eight people barged into Rajiv Gandhi General Hospital around 11 p.m. and hacked a patient. Prakash Raman (40), resident of Amuluamman Koil in Tondiarpet, was admitted to GH ten days ago. He is now in a critical condition, sources said.
Another article covers how Tamil Nadu only “bagged” one award at the National Tourism Awards. A former tourism official expressed deep surprise at the results. Meanwhile, a “tourism expert,” attempted to make sense of the shocking snub:
“It is surprising that we are unable to bag awards despite having several heritage sites and popular monuments. Probably, we have lost the race soon after withdrawing popular schemes such as tourist-friendly autos, hop-on, hop-off buses, cycle tourism, medical tourism, eco-tourism and failure to maintain cleanliness and eco-friendliness of tourist spots, among other reasons.”
We’ll never know which of those many major inconveniences caused Tamil Nadu to lose out.
And the New York Times notes:
“Not one city in India provides water on an all-day, everyday basis.”
It’s not all jokes around here, folks. That being said, this article was also in today’s Hindu:
Sand smugglers try to mow down officials
Hosur: A gang of sand smugglers made an attempt to run over a Revenue Inspector and three village assistans in a tractor ner Shoolagiri in Krishnagiri district early on Wednesday.
The police have registered a case of attempt to murder against eight persons, including a functionary of PMK.
For some reason, they changed the headline in the online edition.
