The India I grew up in has gone. These rapes show a damaged, divided nation | Anuradha Roy
Ugly Hindu nationalism and the ruling regime’s sense of impunity are common factors in these appalling crimesA chilling leitmotif of Nordic crime fiction is a child leaving home to play, never to return. Detectives search out trails pointing to sexual violence and murder, and by degrees it becomes clear that the crime is not isolated: it is the symptom of a damaged community. The abduction, gang-rape, and murder in India of eight-year-old Asifa Bano reveals such damage on a terrifying scale. It shows that the slow sectarian poison released into the country’s bloodstream by its Hindu nationalists has reached full toxicity.Where government statistics say four rapes are reported across the country every hour, sexual assault is no longer news. Indian minds have been rearranged by the constant violence of their surroundings. Crimes against women, children and minority communities are normalised enough for only the most sensational to be reported. The reasons Asifa’s ordeal has shaken a nation exhausted by brutality are four. The victim was a little girl. She was picked because she was Muslim. The murder was not the act of isolated deviants but allegedly of well-organised Hindu zealots. And the men who are accused of raping her included a retired government official and two serving police officers.

Difficult opener for Aditya Patel at Blancpain GT Series Asia
Aditya Patel got a new start to the 2018 Blancpain GT Series Asia season with OD Racing Team WRT at the Sepang International Circuit. However, the first two races did not go as planned, for the team. The Audi R8 LMS GT3 was doing well in race 1 until the car’s hose pipe broke, costing the team what could have been a podium finish. In race 2, however, it was the higher temperatures that proved to be the problem. Both Aditya Patel and Mitch Gilbert had to drive a little more cautiously to finish the race and collect a single point. Gilbert started race 2 from 11th position on the grid, after which he fought hard to gain a few sports but the brakes were wearing too quickly causing him to lower the pace. However, he kept his place and passed the car over to Aditya Patel in 12th position. After this, a smooth pit-stop and steady pace allowed Patel to make up two places and finish the race in 10th. Gilbert was quoted saying, “I thought we were making progress over the weekend but we just keep coming across issues. We still have some work to do and we have a month to figure out what to do for the next round. At least we scored that one point today, and yesterday we could’ve scored six or seven points or more. So when we have a tough weekend we just have to make sure that we keep scoring points.” The next race will be held on the 12th and 13th May, at the Chang International Circuit in Thailand. [...]

2018 Range Rover, Range Rover Sport bookings begin
Land Rover started accepting bookings for the upcoming 2018 Range Rover and the Range Rover Sport. The British marquee is giving a mid-cycle update to its flagship SUVs, with the most significant changes made to the exteriors and the interior. As before, the refreshed Range Rover will get a long-wheelbase version, along with the regular version. The refreshed Range Rover initially made a debut at the last LA Motor Show and was later spied testing in India, wearing a heavy camouflage. On the outside, the 2018 Range Rover has received significant changes to its face. It gets new Pixel-laser LED headlamps that inset into the gloss black fringes of the refreshed grille, which is designed in a new Atlas mesh pattern. In addition, the new Range Rover models also get a different bumper design, tweaked tail-lamps and a more tapered rake for the rear windscreen. On the inside, the cabin is quite a departure from the previous car and replicates the Velar to a large extent. For instance, the new Touch Pro Duo infotainment system sports two 10-inch touchscreens on the centre console (the top one being adjustable for angle) that allow access to a vast range of features inside the cabin, similar to the Velar. However, there are features which remain exclusive in this flagship, like the new front seats with heated armrests, up to 17 connecting points for charging and multimedia, a deployable centre console at the rear, hot stone seat massage function, gesture-controlled sunblinds, cabin air purifier, 4G Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity for up to eight devices and adaptive cruise control with the queue assist function. Though equipment and design updates are extensive, the flagships remain the same at their heart and continue to derive power from the same petrol and diesel engines that did duty in the outgoing models. Their engine range starts with the 247hp, 3.0-litre V6 diesel and goes up to the 551hp, 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol. Prices of the pre-facelift Range Rover that retails in India start at Rs 1.66 crore and goes up to Rs 3.61 crore (ex-showroom). When it arrives, the new model will rival the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLS, BMW X5 and the Audi Q7.  Also see: 2018 Range Rover Sport SVR facelift review, test drive In conversation with Ralf Speth, CEO, Jaguar Land Rover [...]

Playgrounds of rubbish: can upcycling help Kathmandu defeat trash?
As Kathmandu overflows with trash, the city is seeking not just to transform attitudes to waste – but the waste itselfFrom the air, Kathmandu seems to have a thousand winking eyes as the sun hits the solar panels installed on many homes across the city. But on the ground, the sun illuminates something very different: piles of plastic and household rubbish, strewn amongst the pagodas and along the labyrinthine streets. When we said we are building a playground and the materials come or we find them, everyone began laughingWe as the human race have hit the wall to some extent, and places like Kathmandu are the front bumper against that wallSo many youngsters are involved that often the mindset gets changed at home: kids tell their parents to use less plastic.
