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...

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.

Hyundai has taken the wraps off a new sedan at the Beijing motor show, the Lafesta. The model, only to be sold in China for now, is based on the Hyundai Elantra, though it features a different suspension set-up.
The car’s styling takes more than a few design cues from the radical-looking Le Fil Rouge concept that was displayed just a month ago at the Geneva motor show. The Lafesta is a four-door sedan but sports a coupe-like swoopy roofline, and looks decidedly sporty. Expected to launch in China’s market by the end of this year, Hyundai plans to target younger affluent buyers with this model.
While the Le Fil Rouge concept was a larger-looking high-end model, the Lafesta, with its 4,660mm length and 2,700mm long wheelbase, is larger than the Elantra but smaller than the Sonata, and is expected to slot between the two in Hyundai’s China range.
It will be powered by two engine options – a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol and a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol – in varying states of tune from 130hp to 240hp. Both are paired to a seven-speed automatic transmission powering the front wheels.
While there is no word on Hyundai bringing the Lafesta to India, as the model is based on the Elantra sold here, it has potential for our market.
Do you think Hyundai should bring this model to India? Let us know in the comments below.
