The whole issue that was emerging around for last two days on who put the Aadhaar helpline number in your contact list, came to a relief late Friday night when Google, the Android operating system provider accepted that “they” have done it. The company in a statement said that an internal review has revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number such as police, ambulance, fire etc were coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android phones. That was later used in India and has remained there since. And before jumping on to a false conclusion about whom to blame and whom to not, ask yourself: Why did Google save the UIDAI number in your contact list in the first place? They didnt wake up one day and said ”Lets add UIDAI phone number to the Indian phones for fun”. It is a matter of concern over the safety of Aadhar database, safety about You and Me, the 1.35 billion people who’s privacy is now in grave danger. And the government is doing nothing about it. Our Correspondent Miss Anusha Bhattacharya gives more insights about the case.

Prime Minister narendra modi, in his first few years in office, when he cited his naseeb, his luck, was the reason why the oil prices had fallen to tremendous low, and helping India balance its current account deficit, well it seems like the Modi’s naseeb has changed and has taken a roller-coaster ride. The oil prices, which were as low as $43 a barrel in 2015, are now above $80 and the rates are going above $100 a barrel again. Now the irony of the whole matter is our 56-inches chest PM is possibly intimidated by the unites States sanctions on Iran. Iran, on the other hand is not only willing to give oil at a lower price,, but also willing to give it in Indian currency and with a 90 days credit line. accepting this offer would mean, that, the oil prices in our country will come crashing down and our country can pay less with more flexible payment terms.. But seems like the PM is scared to offend the Americans. So finally we common Indians will have to bare the brunt..
