The Hindu: 27th March 2012, Tuesday

1. Upper House for Rajasthan ?

Clue: Look for the Art 169 in the constitution. Know all the 6 states with Bicameral legislature in India.

2. Some poignant pointers: Pg8

Relevance: The highlights of “Understanding Gender Equality in India 2012” are as follows:

i. There is a wide disparity in the gender development across the states in India eg Goa and Rajasthan

ii. The retention of girl child in school is still a challenging task eg West Bengal, Sikkim

iii. Delhi,Punjab,Haryana may be economically progressive but have a skewed sex ratio.

iv. There is a huge state disparities in terms of child sex ratio eg Mizoram and Haryana

v. 30% of women in India experienced physical violence and 8% experienced sexual violence.

vi. Representation of women in higher judiciary, cabinet etc. is abysmal.

3. At nuclear summit: Pg12

Relevance: A good read. Keep an eye over the upcoming developments in Seoul this week.

4. Other 2 markers and tidbits: CPIAL and MNREGA(Pg5), Macky Sall(Pg13), Mario Monti(Pg12), POSCO controversy and Meena Gupta, NC Saxena committee(Pg14), Manik Godghate(Pg20),David Cameroon(Pg20)

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.
