Invisible heroes of Alibaug make best of changing waste economy
Mumbai: Every day, Shah Mohammed cycles through the bylanes of Alibag, balancing enormous gunny bags with the ease of an acrobat. He periodically stops to pick up soft drink cans, plastic packaging, pieces of mangled metal—the detritus of daily life—and pedals on, whistling to himself.

3 Things Nailed Pulwama Mastermind: Adidas Jacket, Kashmiri Lover, And A Damaged Mobile
It had been six months since the Pulwama attack that killed 40 CRPF jawans on February 14, 2019, but Rakesh Balwal, the Jammu and Kashmir head of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) tasked with the probe, was getting nowhere. Intelligence agencies had no clue that the mastermind of the attack, Masood Azhar’s nephew Umar Farooq, had crossed over into Kashmir or that he had been killed in an encounter just a month after Pulwama.
