Low Priority News Items of the Day:

Insurance firm liable for hijacked vehicle: SC

A humanitarian gesture by a truck driver to give a lift on a cold wintry night to strangers, who later stole the truck, cannot be used by the insurance company to deny the vehicle owner’s claim.

Generally, SC’s judgments on different matters are important from the UPSC perspective. But this news is not much important. But still you can try to remember the headline.
(In case, you have Law as your optional for Mains exam, then you are advised to go through the article)

 

How a coast got its name

Ever since Charles Allen, writer and historian, can remember, he has been immersing himself in India’s “muddy waters, getting her dust between my toes.” Returning to the country of his birth time and again, he has made pilgrimages to Kedarnath and Badrinath, visited “thousands of Hindu mandirs and kovils, Jain bastis, Sikh gurdwaras and Buddhist stupas…”

The Op-Ed talks about the views of a foreign historian about South India. Not directly related to the Mains Syllabus and hence can be skipped.
