Quick notes: Land lease, Spectrum auction...

  • Land acquisition: "If the government were so concerned about speed of projects, it should facilitate leasing of land instead of trying to acquire any."


  • Where is Kapil Sibal? Spectrum auction biggest ever, govt kitty may rake in Rs 1 lakh crore


  • Footpath that is wider than the road: Finally, some Indian cities are waking up to the needs of pedestrians and cyclists


  • "Beat the swine flu season: A simple mask can provide 62 per cent protection against viruses, compared to 98 per cent protection with a professional-grade N95 mask with 14 layers


  • Is cholesterol the villain it's made out to be? "Cholesterol is critical for the body. It is needed for cell regeneration and is used to produce [steroid] hormones needed for the normal development and functioning of the body. The human body generates 80 to 85 per cent of the cholesterol. Only 15 to 20 per cent comes from dietary sources. The body has a way of maintaining a healthy cholesterol balance. If you consume more cholesterol in your diet, the body will produce less to keep the balance healthy."
