SINGAPORE: Malaysian Transport Minister Wee Ka Siong has urged commercial airlines in the country to reduce their fares amid growing concerns that COVID-19 has made it too expensive for many people to fly. In a Facebook post on Monday (Jun 22), Dr Wee said that he held a meeting with the country’s three biggest airlines - Malaysia Airlines, Air Asia and Malindo Air earlier in the month to discuss the recovery of the aviation industry. He noted that the airlines “must now begin to reduce their airfares and increase flight frequencies” in line with the relaxation of social distancing rules for scheduled and non-scheduled passenger flights. “Moving forward, the Government has reminded the airlines to set reasonable price levels that would not unduly burden air travellers for work or otherwise, during this time of national recovery from the pandemic,” said Dr Wee. He had earlier confirmed that airlines were no longer required to enforce compulsory social distancing during … [Read more...] about Putrajaya tells airlines to set reasonable fares as the economy recovers from COVID-19
HONG KONG: Hong Kong prison authorities rejected criticism of "modern slavery" on Tuesday (Mar 10) as female inmates started working night shifts to produce millions of face masks after the fast-spreading coronavirus triggered shortages. Inmates at the Lo Wu prison have complained about their health and low pay after monthly production for government agencies was doubled to 2.5 million masks amid surging demand, said lawmaker Shiu Ka-chun who met with the prisoners. "This is an exploitation and another form of modern slavery," said Shiu, a former social worker who has been campaigning for prisoners' rights. Prison officials defended the decision on Tuesday. "All persons in custody participating in the night shift are on a voluntary basis," said a spokeswoman at the Hong Kong's Correctional Services Department, which oversees prisons. "If they found themselves not adaptable to the night shift work, they may approach the management at any time," she told the Thomson Reuters … [Read more...] about Hong Kong denies ‘slavery’ as prisoners work nights to produce face masks
On Sridevi's third death anniversary, Subhash K Jha brings us five of her films that you have probably missed. Jaag Utha Insan , 1984 This, according to me, is the most neglected film of Sridevi's vast and far-ranging oeuvre. She played a Brahmin girl in love with a Dalit boy (Mithun Chakraborty). Her dancing with temples as the backdrop is to die for. Director K Vishwanath, who normally preferred to work with Sridevi's rival Jaya Prada, made an exception here. Very few films have captured this classical side of Sri's personality. Bhagwan Dada , 1986 In this Rakesh Roshan-produced film, Sridevi was cast as a con woman, who takes moneyed men into hotel rooms, gets them drunk and runs off with their money. The role was great fun to play and we can easily see Sridevi having the time of her life in the company of Rajinikanth and 12-year-old Hrithik Roshan. Heer Ranjha , 1992 The love story has been brought on screen on several … [Read more...] about Have you watched these Sridevi films?
New Delhi: February 27, 2021, marks the 90th death anniversary of the Indian revolutionary Chandra Shekhar Azad. Azad was killed on this day in 1931 in Alfred Park, Allahabad after an associate betrayed him. For quite some time, he held the well-armed police that circled him at bay, single-handedly with a small pistol and a few cartridges. However, left with just one bullet, he shot himself in the head and lived up to his resolve that he would never be arrested and dragged to the gallows to be hanged. Below are some facts on the freedom fighter who sacrificed his life for the nation: Chandra Shekhar Azad was born on July 23, 1906, in Bhavra village, Jhabua district, Madhya Pradesh to Pandit Sita Ram Tiwari and Jagrani Devi. He received his early schooling in Bhavra. He went to the Sanskrit Pathashala at Varanasi for higher studies. Young Chandra Shekhar was fascinated by and drawn to the great national upsurge of the non-violent, non-cooperation movement of … [Read more...] about Remembering India’s valiant hero Chandra Shekhar Azad on his 90th death anniversary
