Dialing an emergency number will be a lot bit easier soon. India will adopt '112' as the single national emergency number similar to '911' in the US and '999' in the UK. Eventually it will phase out other emergency numbers like '100' for police, '101' for fire, '102' for ambulance and '108' for disaster management, although they may still continue for another year.

The RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has made another surprisingly liberal statement. He says that no one can force other Indians to chant 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai'. This is in stark contrast to recent BJP executive committee's declaration that refusing to chant the slogan is disrespect to the Indian constitution.

We all feel that a short, sweet afternoon nap does us a lot of good. But we have noticed that lethargy invariably sets in if we take a longer nap and the whole evening passes of in a lazy manner. Researchers have now found that the entire metabolic system gets disturbed if the naps lasts longer than 40 minutes triggering BP, hypertension, cholesterol etc. Frequent long naps is likely to cause premature deaths in most cases.

I happened to see last night's India-Australia cricket match on TV. Indeed it was a breath-taking event. India was losing hope of wining the game and of qualifying to enter into the semi-finals. After four wickets gone, entered the incomparable batsman Virag Kohli. The ease with wich he hit the sixes against the formidable Australian bowlers easily ranks hm as one of the world's greatest batsmen. After seeing the man in action, he has risen in my esteem.

How come the financial regulators were sleeping when thousands of crores of rupees were spirited away from the public sector banks by rich borrowers. Now in a poll rhetoric PM Modi declares that the screws have been tightened on the loan defaulters and no one will be allowed to get away scotfree. We will wait and see whether Modi means business or it is just another poll gimmick.

The Easter eve gathering on the large ground of our neighbourhood church passed off peacefully. No usual police bandobust was seen at the entrance; may be the police were called upon to secure more sensitive places. No so lucky was the Easter gathering at a Lahore park in Pakistan. About 70 people were killed and more than 300 injured in a human bomb explosion at the park. A Taliban outfit claimed the responsibility saying that Christians were the tagets.

Earlier a cochlear implant used to cost Rs. 11 lakhs, which went down to Rs. 6 lakhs when the government started inviting competitive bids. Now, at Rs. 1 lakh per implant, it has become affordable to many.

After a spell of past few hot and sultry days, cool breeze suddenly started blowing in several areas around Mumbai. The most favourable effect of this was the improvement in Mumbai's air quality to the best level in the last three months.

Diabetes melitus is a group of diseases that makes the affected people unable to metabolize glucose that supplies the essential energy to the body. The excess accumulation of glucose in the blood sugar triggers several other health problems. With 65 million affected people, the disease has reached exploding proportion in India. The best way to control it is eating less, right food and in time; having timely and adequate sleep; walking at least 20 minutes a day and leading a stress-free life. Researchers find that the tall claims of Ayurveda and other alternative medicines for complete diabetes cure do not have any proven validity.

Children between the ages of 5 to 12 are privileged to travel on half ticket on Indian Railways. Now the railways is considering to charge them full if they want a separate seat or birth.

While the drive to save water continues and everyone cooperates with it, we learn that about 14.4 lakh liters of water has been used so far to douse the Deonar fires. Yet many areas of the dump yard cannot be reached by fire fighters. The easterly winds fan the fires more and more furiously.

It is dusty weather outside; the temperature is bearable, not too hot. The newspapers say that Wednesday was the hottest day of the season with the temperature soaring above 38 degrees Celsius. The weather experts say this is due to easterly winds blowing from the hot land mass towards the sea. On Thursday, however, the temperature surprisingly dropped down by 5 degrees Celsius.

Internet connections these days are far different from those of old days. The sleek dongles give you 'wifi' connections on the go. It is wonderful to use smartphones to gain the full advantage of internet connection on the go. Very rarely you lose the connection.

The lack of newspapers made my morning dull and spice less. I was waitng for the newspaper in the morning but no sign of it. I scurried through yesterday's paper and found scribbled in small letters in one middle page that today is observed as a holiday on account of Holi. I took a walk around the locality to see if any newspaper, even Midday, was available at some corner. My attempt drew a total blank.

It is Maundy Thursday today. Some people want to head to the hill stations nearby in order to escape the heat of the city. Some people find nothing to do and might quietly relax at home with some reading material. The gormets might enjoy preparing some dainty dishes. Those with spiritual bent of minds might spend the Holy Week in fasting and prayers.

Holi appeared to be celebrated in a somewhat subdued manner this time. I went around the locality and found only a couple of places where people smeared colours on the faces of close acquaintances. The spraying of colored water with pichkaris or throwing of water-filled balloons were conspicuously absent. So it was safe to go around in the morning. May be the festive spirit will pick up by evening.

The animals in the jungle are capable of fending for themselves. But once domesticated, they depend on the kindness and the mercy of human beings for their wellbeing and survival. But attrocities against the animals continue to be perpetrated, nevertheless. The BJP MLA from Dehradun who maimed a police horse has managed to get bail from the local court. In the meanwhile a woman from Bangalore killed eight new-born puppies by flunging them magainst the boulders for her mother daring to give birth to them in a drain right under the gate of her house.

In this age of all-round terrorism, there seems to be no escape from a sudden and unexpected terror strike. The chinks in the security armour of the world's most heavily guarded forts are becoming glaringly exposed. Brussels is the de facto capital of the European Union and is also the worl'd diplomatic capital. It is the height of audaciousness that the terrorists have chosen to strike twice the vulnerable spots in this city.

The Mumbaikars who want to drive to the shopping districts in South Mumbai have experienced the nightmare of finding a place to park the vehicle.

The red BEST buses have been the ubiquitous sight all over beautiful Mumbai for a long time. I have seen them and enjoyed riding them when I first visited Bombay in 1971. In spite of carrying the passengers to the brim, these state government owned buses have been running into losses for the past several years. The introduction of the Metro trains will give another blow to these buses, several of which look already battered. Now the state government has asked MMRDA to offer a Rs. 3,000 crore mobility plan to bail out the loss making BEST roadways.

The relationships keep changing, be it in the cases of individuals or in the cases of nations. The hostilities or friendships never remain permanent. US President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro met after 88 years of stand-off between the two neighboring nations. The US broke off relations with Cuba in 1959 after the US-backed Cuban dictator Batista was overthrown by the communist leader Fidel Castro. The relations reached the critical point during President Kennedy's time in 1961.

Politicians often flout the rule of law and think that the muscle power is the only law in this country. Sometime in February a brazen Sainik assaulted a female trafiic police constable for stopping his SUV for talking on mobile phone while driving. The scene was caught on someone's mobile camera and went viral. The police have registered a case and have filed the charge sheet with the 'clinching' evidence.

The feathers of some ultra-nationalists got fluttered when a radical Islamist leader refused to chant 'Bharat Mata ki Jai'. All this disturbs the peace and harmony of a multi-cultural national like ours. Every extreme action rebounds with extreme reaction. In this context the hoisting high of our national flag at a famous dargah at Bhendi Bazar in Mumbai shows that there are multitudes of people who express love and peace between the communities who delight on being at odds with each other.

Sometimes surprisingly liberal views come forth out of direly conservative outfits. The General Secretary of RSS opined that gay sex is not criminal so long as it does not impign on the rights of other people. This may induce the government to change the outdated laws on the sexual orientation of indiiduals.
