Brick-and-mortar men have little say in poll
Come elections, political parties start wooing the four-lakh strong Purvanchali population that lives in different pockets of the city. Though their number is large, their votes are just 10 per cent of their count. As a result, political parties use them for their odd jobs but never given them their due. The Biharis and the UP-wallahs continue to live in misery and squalor in the land of plenty despite poll promises to the contrary, reports Dharmendra Joshi

Biharis part and parcel of Punjab: Nitish
Bihar CM Tries to bridge cultural gap between Punjabis and Biharis
The Bihar Chief Minister, Mr Nitish Kumar, has sought to bridge the gap between Punjab and Bihar by observing that Biharis settled in Punjab have become a “part and parcel” of society in the state. He has also predicted that both Bihar and Punjab would convert India into a developed nation by 2015.

It’s a merry time when gossips meet

What is that which spreads freely like fungus, floats liberally and multiplies at an astonishing speed? Well, it is rumour – the mother of all non-news! Circulating a rumour is an art, which requires no formal degree, authentic knowledge or wisdom. It has no source or basis though it appears to be hinged on a credible one as it makes its rounds.

Tough time for rail passengers
Local passengers, who were travelling in the Jammu-bound 6687 Up Navyug Express, faced tough time today as the train passed through the Phagwara railway station without halting. Later, the train was stopped at the Chaheru railway station and the passengers disembarked there and travelled back to Phagwara in buses.

Just a thought
I hear but don’t listen

Election time is the best time for the bureaucracy. It is time to act without the pressure of the political executive. If the bureaucrats don’t act without fear or favour, they have none to blame but themselves. The Deputy Commissioner of Nawanshahr, Mr Krishan Kumar, said this to me in his office recently.

Mr Prerit Aggarwal, Front Office Manager, Hotel Radisson, gave tips to students on improving their personality and communication skills to become good hospitality professionals.
