    Why is cable TV digitisation being made compulsory?

    Why is cable TV digitisation being made compulsory?

    As the October 31 deadline for digitisation of cable television connections in the four metros nears, we wonder if TV sets will go blank on November 1 if are not ‘digitised’
    Political party Shiv Sena Monday demanded an extension of the deadline from October 31 to January 2013 for digitisation of cable TV networks in the four metros of Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai, as acquiring set-top boxes is causing a burden on the poor in the festival season. Uddhav Thackeray, the party Executive President said that in Mumbai around one-third of the households were yet to buy set-top boxes (STBs) which cost around Rs 1,000-1,200 per piece.

    Amitabh Bachchan is the last ‘Shahenshah’ of Bollywood: Bal Thackeray

    Amitabh Bachchan is the last ‘Shahenshah’ of Bollywood: Bal Thackeray

    Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray Saturday demanded that the country’s highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna, be conferred on Amitabh Bachchan. “Amitabh Bachchan is the last ‘Shahenshah’ (emperor) of Bollywood. In many countries of the world, the people don’t know who is the president or prime minister of the country, but they know Bachchan,” Thackeray said in an editorial in the party mouthpiece Saamna. “He is a real jewel of India who has brought laurels to the country…Bachchan truly deserves the Bharat Ratna,” Thackeray said. Praising various qualities of the megastar, he pointed out that some time ago, another Bharat Ratna, singer Lata Mangeshkar, had also suggested Bachchan’s name for the honour. Bachchan is “as deserving as Sachin Tendulkar for the Bharat Ratna,” but the central government and the Congress has ignored it in view of strained relations between the Bachchan and the Gandhi family, Thackeray said. Thackeray referred to the smear campaigns against Bachchan as recently someone used a fake Twitter account in the actor’s name, tweeting malicious statements against the Shahrukh Khan starrer RA.One. Actor Sayali Bhagat hurled allegations of misbehaviour at Bachchan, but she now denied it, the Shiv Sena chief said. “Who is this ‘Ravana’ behind these slander campaigns against a respected person like Bachchan? This should be probed,” Thackeray demanded, without naming anybody. Thackeray’s comments assume significance in view of the ongoing Maharashtrians versus north-Indians debate here that has been kicked off by city Congress MP Sanjay Nirupam. “We are not a burden on Mumbai,” the MP said October 24 adding, “If north Indians take a single day off, Mumbai will be practically paralysed.”
