Can there be a bigger shame than this? Hospital buries its ‘ rat- nibbled’ shame on campus By Sudhanshu Mishra in Jaipur
FOR A man who had donated his body for the welfare of the medical professionals, it was an end most unceremonious. Professor Rameshwar Sharma, late principal of the Jaipur Sawai Man Singh ( SMS) medical college, had willed that after his death his body should be donated to the college. But the ignorant college authorities failed to appreciate his generous gesture.

Sheena Iyengar: How to make choosing easier


LETTER TO EDITOR Dated: 22 Jan 2012 Sir,
1An advertisement from the Congress Party of India has appeared in to-day’s news papers. This concerns the issues relating to ex-servicemen and Defence matters. This is appreciated. Attention of all the political parties engaged in the current elections is drawn to the monumental neglect of less mortals who are serving the Armed forces of the Union of India. They are Defence Services Civilians who are paid salaries and pensions from Defence Services Estimates. Defence Services Civilian Pensioners are authorized for CSD Canteen Facility and the Status of Ex-servicemen as per laid down Army order and definition of ex-servicemen. Despite their contribution to the Armed Forces both in peace and war and despite their authorization they have been denied these facilities and status. The contestants of the current elections are requjested to take up these issues in their agenda.
