Delhi: Hailing the Supreme Court’s order that vehicle insurance should be renewed unless the owner provides pollution under control (PUC) certificate a green body said "it is an important step forward" Representational image Reuters "In Delhi only 23 percent of vehicles come for the PUC checks With mandatory linking of annual vehicle insurance with valid PUC certificate the compliance level can improve significantly-especially as the Supreme Court has directed its enforcement nation-wide" DG of Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) Sunita Narain said In a bid to curb pollution the Supreme Court on Thursday issued a slew of directions including that insurance companies will not renew insurance of a vehicle unless the owner provides pollution under control (PUC) certificate A bench headed by Justice Madan B Lokur also asked the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways to ensure that all fuel refilling centres in the National Capital Region (NCR) have PUC centres The CSE said that this recommendation was made by the the EPCA in its Report No 73 (on assessment of Pollution Under Control (PUC) Programme in Delhi and NCR) which submitted in the court in April this year

beautiful time in December when I landed in the Andaman Islands The view of the Bay of Bengal was enthralling; undulating mountains met the sea and merged infinitely into the sky But upon reaching our four-star hotel apparently the highest category in Port Blair disappointment kept getting heaped on from the illogically high cost of rooms being over $300 per night —even more than five-star hotels in mainland India — to bad hotel upkeep due to a lack of hygiene and cleanliness Even in this beautiful paradise I could barely sleep the first night as I was plagued by an itch all over It was better to go stand in front of the window and enjoy Nature’s beauty than experience the hotel’s facilities The next morning we suddenly came upon an unusually beautiful scene Swaying in the sea breeze were rows of huge white sheets hung on clotheslines stretching hundreds of metres The sheets were neatly wedged into two intertwined tight ropes on two edges while the other two edges were cleverly suspended in an amphitheatre of green grass that sloped down to a serene pond filled with lotus leaves Around the pond were a few large trees that made the rays of the sun play hide-and-seek on the white drapery This vast mesmerising scene reminded me of famous environmental art I saw in New York in 2005 Created in Central Park by artists Christo and Jean Claude their art had bright saffron coloured fabric covering 37 km of the park with 7503 gates five metres high The married couple specialises in constructing visually impressive artistic works using reams and reams of fabric They had wrapped the whole Reichstag building in Berlin using 100000 sq metres of fireproof polypropylene cloth and Miami’s Biscayne Bay with 603850 sq metres with pink floating fabric Theirs is a vanishing art “It takes much greater courage to create things to be gone than to create things that will remain” says Christo The hanging white sheets we were crossing made for a truly stunning sight but of course it was not an officially declared work of environmental art It was Port Blair’s dhobi ghat The large pond had flattened slabs of rock Men stood in the water vigorously bashing huge white bedsheets on the stone slabs They’d take the cloth from large bins that were caked with white chemicals from having been used over a long period for bleaching the cloth Dipping these sheets into water they’d fold each sheet then with biceps gleaming thrash it forcefully First on one side turn it around flog the other side before washing off the chemicals and detergent in the pond behind them Undoubtedly an inhuman laborious job in today’s modern world of technology A wall being built had a notice that claimed that it was a welfare measure of the local government representative The wall will certainly hide this spectacular view from tourists Was concealing the dhobis from public gaze the reason behind constructing the wall These white sheets are the linen that tourists sleep on so would their method of cleaning disturb the tourists After all the water was stagnant it looked whitish next to the washermen and greenish near the lotus leaves The sheets are then hung up to dry after being directly taken out of this water and ironed in the evening before being delivered back to the hotels within 24 hours “I have been in this business for 30 years We have to get labour from mainland India because the Andamanese are not willing to do hard work” said Muthu who is from Tamil Nadu His son who goes to college wants a government job and does not want to spend his life beating clothes Muthu says that all hotels even the most expensive ones use this laundry system The dhobis charge Rs 2-4 for small items like pillow cases and Rs 7-10 for bed linen Each hotel gives 200 to 400 sheets per day in winter so the business is good From the clothesline I did notice the brand labels or etchings of several different Port Blair hotels on the sheets and towels So this was the sense of hygiene of the hotels a jugaad (just-fix-it) system for laundry Jugaad the patch-up solution I wrote about last week is used by those who have meagre resources The dhobis in India have traditionally provided this service They earn a living using the resources they can muster which are hard work stamina and the skill of laundering As per the age-old custom they collect clothes from different houses mark each household’s clothes with a unique symbol in black indelible ink and return the washed starched ironed linen within a few days We knew the flowing water streams dhobis washed the clothes in and trusted them as a recognised part of society However today when we go to four- and five-star hotels paying large sums of money to live as though we were in the West our expectation is that mechanical methods be used for basic jobs like clothes cleaning That’s because washing thousands of white bedsheets every day — that too with chemicals in a stagnant pond — is unnatural in the traditional system and clearly overstretches available traditional resources If such hotels can pretend to provide Western comfort why don’t they also buy a few washing machines I was doubly confirmed when we found the same dhobis collecting bed linen from the hotel So I had no choice but to buy bed and bath linen to use in the hotel How could I put my face in the towel or on the sheets washed in that polluted water Perhaps my itching would stop too The beautiful Andamans is a lovely spot for a holiday But this kind of jugaad spirit after charging so much money is really horrible Instead of attracting global travellers such jugaad could destroy our tourism income For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Maulshree Seth | Lucknow | Published:

in the event Congress state president Raj Babbar and AICC general secretary in-charge Ghulam Nabi Azad who were both in Lucknow on Sunday were reportedly unaware of Upadhyay joining the party “It is a sad incident and against the policy and ideology of the Congress An inquiry is being conducted into the entire incident… how it happened without the matter being in the knowledge of any senior leader None of us knew that he was joining the party” said R P Tripathi general secretary in-charge of organisation who will conduct the probe Asked whether action would be against the person who took the initiative to induct Upadhyay Tripathi said it would become clear only after the probe is completed Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee chairman Ram Krishna Dwivedi who was present at the event where Upadhyay joined the party said: “First thing we did was to remove the person with immediate effect Now we are looking into the entire incident Further action will be decided accordingly” When contacted Upadhyay said: “This is the work of my opponents Those who had come with me were my supporters I do not know from where these labourers came and created a ruckus I have written to Congress state president Raj Babbar to probe the entire incident” Upadhyay who had contested the UP elections from Lucknow Cantonment seat as a Shiv Sena candidate claimed he had met Babbar in New Delhi before joining the party officially in Lucknow “I have also requested that I should have been given chance to explain myself rather than being removed without the party seeking any explanation” he said The Congress meanwhile issued strict guidelines for induction of new leaders From now on the district and city party presidents concerned would conduct background verification of the leaders willing to join Congress After the district head gives a go-ahead the party zonal in-charge would have to recommend the leader following which the state president would be informed of the matter “Senior leader Madan Mohan Shukla has been made in-charge of this… every recommendation for new inductions would have to go though him He would get the leader’s background verified from the district unit… the zonal in-charge would recommend the leader and then the matter would be sent to the state president” said Tripathi For all the latest Lucknow News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Reuters |

better-than-expected quarterly profit and revenue and said the sale of its core internet business to Verizon Communications Inc should be completed in the second quarter allaying some investor concerns that the deal might collapse The $48 billion Verizon transaction had originally been expected to close in the first quarter but was delayed by the disclosure of two major cyber breaches that exposed information from more than a billion Yahoo accounts The Securities and Exchange Commission has opened a probe into whether Yahoo’s data breaches should have been disclosed sooner to investors the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday Yahoo said Monday that it has spent approximately $10 million related to a 2014 security breach announced in September and a 2013 breach announced in December Watch our videos from Express Technology Operating results for the fourth quarter featuring a 15 percent gain in revenue from a year ago appeared to provide some belated vindication of embattled Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer’s strategy The company’s shares rose 12 percent to $4290 in heavy after-market trading Revenue from Mavens – the mobile video native and social advertising units that Mayer has long touted as key emerging businesses – rose 25 percent to $590 million Gross search revenue fell 6 percent to $821 million as Yahoo struggled to win back market share from bigger rivals such as Alphabet Inc’s Google Cantor Fitzgerald Analyst Youssef Squali said the report shows Yahoo is capable of increasing efficiency but cautioned that search was on the decline and display would be in decline if the numbers were crunched differently “You have to remember this business is still a melting ice cube” said Squali Emarketer analyst Martin Utreras said Verizon would likely be reassured by positive user engagement trends revealed in the report Also read: US SEC probing Yahoo over previously disclosed cyber breach “The concern was really with the user engagement whether those data breaches would have a material impact” he said “But basically from what they released today it looks like the engagement hasn’t changed that much from what they said the previous year” The Verizon deal would transform Yahoo into a holding company called Altaba whose primary assets would include its 15 percent stake in Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba Group Holding Ltd and a 355 percent interest in Yahoo Japan Corp Net income attributable to Yahoo was $162 million or 17 cents per share in the fourth quarter ended December 31 compared with a loss of $443 billion or $470 per share a
