Is wanting lighter skin any sillier than wanting bigger boobs? | Letters
A reader from India says that damning western attitudes towards skin-lightening creams are hypocritical and ignore non-west beauty normsYour article (Skin-lightening creams are dangerous – yet business is booming. Can the trade be stopped?, 23 April) seems to imply that people who want fairer skin are irrationally endangering themselves. However, I see this as a west-centric understanding that fails to empathise with the fact that fairer skin is a beauty norm in much of the non-west, much like being thin or slim is a beauty standard in the west. Conversely, traditional South Asian beauty standards value a “healthy” or “plump” physique for women, which is an indicator of belonging to a family that is reasonably well-off.Yes, as an Indian woman, I do want fairer skin. And no, I would not use creams containing dangerous chemicals, because I respect myself too much for that. But I would use home remedies that my grandmothers and great-grandmothers have used for over a century – turmeric, chickpea flour, yoghurt, rose water – if they can help me feel better about myself and, yes, attract the attention of the opposite sex. Isn’t that a most human desire? What makes it OK to devalue non-western women’s quests for better self-esteem? Continue reading... [...]

VW Motorsport India to provide cars for all three INRC categories
Volkswagen Motorsport India announced that it will be developing and building customer cars for its customers to compete in FMSCI India National Rally Championship (INRC). It will be preparing cars to compete in all three categories of the championship – INRC, INRC2 & INRC3. To showcase the performance of their cars, the German brand will officially compete in the INRC and INRC2 categories in the first race of the season in Chennai, this weekend. The INRC car will be driven by former FMSCI President and national champion, Vicky Chandhok, while Phalguna Urs will pilot the INRC2 car.

Chandhok, who will be returning to motorsports after 18 years, will be driving the Volkswagen Polo R2 rally car; his co-driver for the race is Chandramouli, from Benglauru. According to the 61-year old veteran, he will take the decision of racing in the following rounds of INRC depending on his performance in the first race.

Commenting on the announcement, Sirish Vissa, head of Volkswagen Motorsport India said, “After our global success in the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) for four years on the trot, Volkswagen Motorsport changed its focus to developing customer cars globally and we followed suit here in India, too.

Adani builds coal-fired power plant in India to send energy to Bangladesh
But is it a genuine energy solution – or just a prop for the Carmichael mine? • Sign up to receive the top stories in Australia every day at noonGodda, in the Indian state of Jharkhand, is surrounded by the country’s most productive coalmines. It will soon also be home to the Adani group’s latest coal-fired power station, a plant built for the sole purpose of sending energy across the border to Bangladesh.Adani has framed its planned 1,600-megawatt Godda power plant as a humanitarian venture. In a statement to Guardian Australia, the company said it had acted “in the large interests of our neighbours, the people of Bangladesh” by inking the deal.But market analysts say the supply agreement is anything but benevolent. The tariffs quoted by the Bangladesh Power Development Board are about double the current cost of solar and wind power in India.

'Designed for death': the Mumbai housing blocks breeding TB
A new report confirms what many residents suspected: living conditions in the city’s ‘resettlement’ blocks are little better than the slums they replacedIt’s a hot summer afternoon, but the windows stay firmly shut in the Sheikh family’s home. Fifteen-year-old Samira, who is convalescing after tuberculosis (TB) and needs fresh air, says they keep the window of their second-floor apartment closed because of mosquitoes, bad smells from leaking pipes and a lack of privacy: the next block is just three metres away.Samira’s neighbourhood of Govandi-Mankhurd was once on Mumbai’s outskirts – far enough away to plonk fertiliser plants, refineries and a rubbish dump. Today, the area is one of the city’s most populous, poor and underserved suburbs. This is where authorities have resettled, in large housing projects, slum-dwellers from other parts of the city whose shanties were cleared for new roads.The houses are planned in such a way that they are going to lead to illness. They are literally designed for deathWhen you have small, crowded homes, you require outdoor spaces to live life – especially for children and old people Related: Absolute hell: the toxic outpost where Mumbai's poorest are 'sent to die' Continue reading...

Amitabh Bachchan: 'Forget the Avengers, it took real heroes to make India polio-free'
By reaching each child on the planet with life-saving vaccines, deadly diseases can be wiped out, says the Bollywood starThere was a time, not that long ago, when eradicating polio from my country seemed like pure fiction. Not even 10 years ago, India was home to nearly half of the world’s polio cases. And when I was a boy, the idea that polio could be defeated was an impossibility, an endless fight, an actual war against infinity.So the sense of pride I felt on the day, four years ago, when we could finally announce the eradication of polio from India, was outstripped only by my sense of awe at the true legends of this fight – the volunteers and vaccinators who went from door to door, village to village, to give every child those precious drops.
