Amritsar blast: It was a usual Sunday congregation at Amritsar’s ‘Nirankari Bhavan’ until nearly 200 devotees were pushed into chaos after a grenade attack killed three and injured over 15. As two men on a motorcycle hurled a hand grenade in an apparent terror attack at the premises, from where messages of peace and spirituality are sent out, the devotees attending a religious congregation scrambled for safety.

Maratha reservations: In a move that may have larger political ramifications in state politics, the Maharashtra government on Sunday approved reservation for the Maratha community, which has been agitating since last year demanding reservation in jobs and education.

Sugarcane protests: After days of continuous agitations by sugarcane farmers in Beagavi, fresh protests erupted in Suvarna Sada district, where a group of farmers tried to barge in with truck-loads of their produce on Sunday.

Remembering Padamsee: Indian advertising's eminence grise, Alyque Padmasee, passed away on Saturday, at the age of 90. Considered by many to be the father of Indian advertising, Padmasee crafted some of the country's most iconic commercials, jingles, and characters, from the Kamasutra campaign to the Liril girl to Hamara Bajaj. Lintas, the ad agency he founded, was a pioneer in the field and set the template for future Indian advertisers.

The post-1978 history of the Congress confirms Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s allegation that the high post of Congress president has been almost reserved for a member of the Nehru-Gandhi family. Except for the six-year term of PV Narasimha Rao and barely year-and-a-half tenure of Sitaram Kesri, Indira Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi have occupied the top party job for 32 of the last 40 years. Rasheed Kidwai recalls how the last 'outsider' in the Congress Party was forced out of the top-job by Nehru-Gandhi loyalists.
