Sidhu gets a spokesperson

Mr ‘Speak-All' has got a new mouthpiece — his wife. All these years everyone thought it was virtually impossible to bowl cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Sidhu out from his innings as he is an incessant speaker. But this time, much to the surprise of all, he is maintaining a strategic silence on the issue of his retiring hurt from the political field. What, perhaps, is all the more  intriguing is that he has his wife speaking on his behalf. Well, Mr Sidhu, we all have heard of batsmen having runners after getting hurt. This is the first time a batsman has a gunner to fire for him.

 

RTE, a tooth to scratch the floor

Right to Education and its implementation in private schools have proved to be a futile exercise for the Government. Parents who are ambitious to provide better education to their children in the City Beautiful are running pillar to post to avail the Government scheme, but the schools are reluctant to provide any assistance. Now, schools are playing hide and seek by not letting out any information on the said scheme and on the receiving end are the children who have lost all their faith in the system after being turned down by various schools in their neighbourhood.

 

Beauty conscious women cops!

Post the Delhi gang-rape case and its subsequent outcry, police of queen of hills deployed hundreds of women cops in different locations to prevent any untoward incidents especially with the tourists. The deployment took place. Now, in summer when scorching sun  is making the temperature soar, these women cops have approached senior officers saying that their skin is getting tanned and would affect their prospect of marriage. Such was the pressure, that now police had to distribute white Cow Boy styled hats among all police personnel on duty in the State capital, especially among traffic police and district police women constables.
