The Hindu: 24th Jan 2012, Tuesday

1. National Girl child day : pg6 , pg9

Relevance: Declining child sex ratio is a grave issue before the nation.

Clue: Do you know about the various govt schemes on women and child development like STEP, Priyadarshani, Swadhar, Ujjawala, SABLA, Stree shakti puraskar, Swayamsidha, Domestic violence act 2005, ICPS, ICDS, PCPNDT, Dhanlaxmi, IGMSY, JSY, MTP act 1971 etc. Source could be IYB chapter on women and child development and of course the internet.

2. Wanted : pg8

Relevance: The cable television network (amendment) bll 2011. Just know about the proposed changes.

3.  MNREGA: pg11

Clue: Do you know MNREGA wages were linked with CPI AL last year and the fact that MNREGA wages are lower than minimum wages in at least 14 states. This would help

4. Croatia: pg13

Relevance: Important from PT point of view, I guess. Just glance through the map of Eastern Europe, it’s so confusing.

Clue: Know about the internal structure of EU- EU commission, EU parliament, EU council, Lisbon treaty, Maastricht treaty, Treaty of rome etc. Last week Catherine Ashton was in India.

5.  EU- FTA : pg17

I think we should wait till second week of Feb, as I’m sure newspapers would be flooded with news items on EU considering the India-EU summit scheduled on 10th Feb.

6. Other 2 markers:

Hari Kunzru, Amitav Kumar , Ruchir joshi and Jeet Thayil (Frontpage), Alexandar Cunningham (pg 7, he was in news last year because of 150th year of ASI), Operation Atlanata (pg 10).

I found only these items useful in Tuesday’s paper. If you could spot some thing more which is relevant to CSE please feel free to post in comments section.
