There is a massive heart-burning in The Hindu and Indian Express today on the appointment of spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar by Supreme Court as one of the mediators in the long-simmering Ayodhya dispute.
An allocation of Rs. 242 crores has been made in the budget for grants to Sanskrit Pathshalas in the state. Another 30 crores has been allotted to provide grants to aided Sanskrit schools and degree colleges.
Contrary to reports by various media outlets, OpIndia.com discovered that Ram Mandir was still very much an issue for the residents of Ayodhya. Although it was quite clear that they do want other amenities but for them, it is not an either/or issue.
