Maruti Suzuki Eeco gets safety upgrades
Maruti Suzuki has given its venerable Eeco people mover a major safety upgrade. The move comes in the run up to the implementation of new norms that mandate the fitment of certain safety equipment for a car to be eligible for sale. In compliance with the norms, the Eeco has received a driver airbag, ABS and rear parking sensors. All versions of the Maruti Suzuki Eeco will also feature a driver and front passenger seatbelt reminder as well as a speed alert system that alerts the driver by means of a series of beeps when speeds exceed 80kph. Safety upgrades aside, the Maruti Suzuki Eeco does not get any mechanical or cosmetic changes. Modern day essentials such as power steering have been given a miss too underlining the Eeco's budget and utilitarian positioning. The people mover  is available with Suzuki's long standing G12B 1.2-litre petrol engine that's mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The Maruti Suzuki Eeco is available in five and seven seat forms and can also be had with a factory-fitted CNG kit. Maruti also sells the Eeco as Tour V that is equipped with features like a speed governor etc, tailored for fleet and cab operators.   The addition of the aforementioned safety features has bumped up the price for the budget people mover by around Rs 400 to Rs 23,000 depending on the variant.

Social workers can do so much more than just pick up the pieces
At its best, social work can break cycles of crisis, and help people change their lives and communitiesGuardian Jobs: see the latest vacancies in social care Too often, social services are designed as rotating doors. They focus on individuals in crisis who, when the symptoms of the emergency have eased, are sent directly back to the stressful situation that caused all the damage – a painful, costly and tragic cycle.There is little focus in formal social services on helping people to transform their environments to provide ongoing support and love, let alone engaging people to become advocates for their rights. Yet outside these limitations, social workers are supporting connections in communities designed to last people’s whole lifetimes. In many countries we call it “working beyond services”. There are countless examples around the world.
