Centrally protected monuments untraceable

About 35 centrally protected monuments/sites which were supposed to get protection from the Archaeological Survey of India under the provision of the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act, 1958, are untraceable. Union Minister for Tourism and Culture Ambika Soni accepted the fact in the Rajya Sabha.

Now the Central Government is going to set-up a statutory Heritage Sites Commission. The Commission would be set-up after the enactment of an appropriate legislation. The commission would advise the government on short and long term policies in respect of heritage conservation, preparing guidelines for conservation and management of heritage sites, suggesting necessary amendments to heritage legislations, commissioning studies and investigations. It would also lead to the identification and categorisation of heritage sites and providing advice to the government on matters pertaining to heritage.

Lady judges for rape cases

Central Government is planning to amend the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) with a provision that only lady judges would try rape cases. Is it not a perverse step that the government would be taking? Instead of providing a better atmosphere to record the evidence of the prosecutor and providing protection to the witness, the government is planning to have only female judges to try cases of rape?

Journalism courses not upto mark

Even though Journalism in India is picking up but journalism courses are not progressing with the times just as the curriculum at schools. Journalism in India is not making changeover from political and spot reporting to the world of financial journalism. In fact, none of the mainstream media in India has made any shift in this regard. Else, how can one explain the largely unchanged style-books that Indian media houses continue to peddle to their trainees to date? Compare these with the updated contents available with the Reuters or Bloomberg or AP or any one of the other wire agencies or even the NY Times or Washington Post.

Highest infant mortality rate in MP

Madhya Pradesh has the highest infant mortality rate in the country, followed by Orissa and then Uttar Pradesh. This has been revealed in the latest report titled ?Sample Registration System?, published by the office of the Registrar General of India. According to the report, Madhya Pradesh?s infant mortality rate is 79 per 1,000 live births, followed by Orissa?s 77 per 1,000 live births and Uttar Pradesh?s 72 per 1,000 live births. The death rate in the country is highest in Orissa (9.6 per 1,000), followed by Madhya Pradesh (9.2 per 1,000) and Uttar Pradesh (8.8 per 1,000).
