  • Compact SUV showdown: EcoSport is fun, but Vitara Brezza is practical

    A mere two days after Maruti Suzuki launched the Vitara Brezza and the compact SUV became the talk of the town, rival Ford did the best (or worst?) thing to divert some of the attention back to its own EcoSport. It cut prices. And by no small measure, mind you. Diesel EcoSports, for instance, now cost a whopping Rs 1.12 lakh less than before. The new pricing means there’s little difference between EcoSport and Brezza prices now. The top-spec Ford EcoSport 1.5 diesel Titanium+ costs Rs 9.75 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) while the fully loaded Brezza ZDi+ comes in at Rs 9.68 lakh. We picked the Ford EcoSport as our Car of the Year 2014 and know it’s a brilliant package. Mechanical and cosmetic updates

  • What happened with Dhoni is unfortunate: Anil Kapoor

    New Delhi, April 28 (IANS) Actor Anil Kapoor says that endorsing brands comes with a lot of responsibility but one can't presume the legitimacy of a particular company in the long run. Earlier this month, Dhoni resigned as the brand ambassador of Amrapali, days after the unhappy residents of a housing project in Noida launched a social media campaign, asking the cricketer to disassociate himself from the realty firm. Sharing his reaction on how brand endorsements are crucial for popular faces like him, Anil said: "I have always endorsed those brand whom I believed and supported." "I feel it is such a speculative business and sometimes you don't know (what will happen).

  • Drought-hit farmers trading cattle for cash

    It took Pandurang Shinde three trips to the weekly Khandoba cattle bazaar in Parbhani, one of the eight drought-hit districts of Marathwada, to find a buyer for his pair of bullocks. After much heckling, he managed to sell his coveted pair at Rs 50,000, half the price at what the animals had cost him. The weekly cattle bazaar, held on Thursdays, at Parbhani taluka is packed these days, full of distressed farmers selling off their cattle like Shinde with the hope to keep themselves afloat as water scarcity pushes them to the brink. The cattle trade in the region — in the five districts where no cattle camps have been set up so far — is at an all-time low with just 25% of transactions as sellers

  • How Bentley’s most powerful SUV Bentayga could be worth 5 Kohinoors

    The common man’s heart in my chest will never be able to fathom why India is still asking for the fêted Kohinoor to be returned by Britain. First, we ‘gifted’ it to them. Second, we’ve no crown to embellish; no queen to celebrate if she turns 100. And all those asking for the diamond – guys, you’re not getting it back. It’s now in their royal crown. So, just let it go. Instead, what the Britons offer to India this day is something much more royal – a pureblood ultra-luxury sports hi-tech wagon pulled by 12 horses that’s coming straight from Crewe, England, at a speed of over 300 kmph. And trust me, owning a Bentley Bentayga could probably bring you as much satisfaction as five Kohinoor diamonds!

  • Bled by emigration, abandoned Portuguese villages lose hope of surviving

    By Andrei Khalip LISBON (Reuters) - The villages of Agracoes and Povoa de Agracoes in northern Portugal look little alike - one is a run-down cluster of dilapidated old stone houses, the other has a cosier feel, with a flower-bedecked wayside shrine and chapel. The steady drip-drip of emigration has brought down their numbers from more than 50 residents to fewer than a dozen each. It is the same desolate picture in scores of other backwater settlements in Portugal's interior, north to south.
