Melvisharam - Chennai Bus Diverted

Today, there was a problem in 7.40 am Visharam – Chennai bus and the bus conductor told me that here after the bus instead of coming to Visharam through by-pass from Arcot Bus Depot will go first to the Arcot Bus Stand and load passengers and will come to Visharam, all the way through the main road and will bound to Chennai from Visharam by-pass. It means that no Visharam passengers will be getting bus seats as it will be loaded in Arcot Bus Stand itself.

It is not clear about the 4.10 am and 6.20 am Visharam – Chennai buses. Will this buses also come loaded with passengers from Arcot and head to Chennai through Visharam? Everybody knows that it was a big effort to get the bus services from Visharam and so far, the Government has done little service to our town and now its officers are diverting that small government services from us.

People of Visharam, please, do something to stop diversion of this buses from its regular routes. If it is done, definitely we will be losing our grounds of what so far offered through the government.

25 paise coins to be demonetised

25 paise coins to be demonetised
Mumbai, May 18 (PTI) Reserve Bank today asked public to exchange 25 paise coins and those with lower denominations with banks before June 30, the day from which they would be demonetised or cease to be a legal tender for payment.

"Coins of denomination of 25 paise and below will cease to be legal tender from June 30, 2011. These will not be accepted for exchange at bank branches from July 1, 2011 onwards," the RBI said.

"The RBI has, therefore, appealed to the members of public to exchange these coins at the branches of banks maintaining small coin depots or at the offices of the Reserve Bank," the central bank said.
The exchange facility at specified bank branches or the Reserve Bank offices will be available till the close of business on June 29, 2011.

RBI has instructed the banks maintaining small coins to arrange for exchange of coins of denomination of 25 paise and below for their face value at their branches.
The Government had decided to withdraw the coins of denomination of 25 paise and below from circulation from June 30.

All India Muslim Forum On the Western Intervention in Libya

All India Muslim Forum On the Western Intervention in Libya
All India Muslim Forum
Published Online: Mar 20, 2011
Lucknow (20 March 2011): Chairman, All India Muslim Forum has issued the following statement: I can anticipate the disastrous consequences of this Western intervention in Libya. However, it was inevitable, and even Gaddafi is on record to have regretted the absence of Western help to quell the so-called Al-Qaida terrorists of his make.
I do respect the Tunisian and Egyptian dictators, who after initial intransigence, relinquished their posts to pave the way for the other generation to decide the future of their respective countries. At this stage those who are opposing the Western intervention are answerless as what they would have done to save the revolutionaries and other civilians from being massacred at the hands of this tyrant.
On the other hand, Saudis have sent their forces to help the Bahrain ruler quell the revolt and regrettably, the sectarian Shia-Sunni label is being attached to the entire uprising , the way it was manipulated when after the Iranian revolution a danger had been created to the survival of these Muslim kings and sheikhs. And now I can visualize that in the coming days, the Maulvis will be funded across the world to provide sectarian colour to the simmering discontent of revolution in Bahrain, Saudi Arab etc.
