decided to move permanently to Mumbai a few months ago right after completing a Bachelor’s degree in human rights at Bard College in New York Why did you come to Mumbai It seemed like a great place to work; there are so many opportunities here I have a job right now as a researcher and campaign manager at Majlis which is a legal centre for women who are survivors of domestic and sexual violence What do you like about Mumbai There’s always a lot to do here events in theatre art and music and incredible restaurants I also love that people here are so independent What do you not like about Mumbai The traffic of course I live near Kurla so it’s no joke Also living here is so expensive Restaurants can easily price a vada pav at Rs 400 There aren’t enough chilled-out bars too Most are crowded and play loud music What is a memorable experience you’ve had here I remember the first time I had malai gola it was amazing I had never tasted a gola with condensed milk and butterscotch flavour before I had it while I was spending an afternoon on Juhu Beach where there was also some great pav bhaji It was a very nice day What’s your favourite spot in the city I go to Rock Beach all the time even though it can be a little shady It’s a very quiet beach which is hard to find in the city The first time I went there I was on a horrible date and wished the guy would disappear so I could enjoy the place by myself Which city do you prefer — Delhi or Mumbai Mumbai is better than Delhi in every way People are more civil on the roads and you can get help quite easily People are less snobbish I feel safer here I also love the trains they help you understand the city so much better Finally I quite like the weather here I think the humidity is good for my skin and hair For all the

satellite: Space scientists looking for clues On 26 March the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) lost contact with the Hitomi x-ray observatory At a press conference in Tokyo this week JAXA officials said that because of the difficulty of gathering information from the wayward satellite they couldn’t say how long it might take to figure out what has gone wrong The satellite seems to be in at least two pieces—but ground stations have intermittently picked up signals apparently from the spacecraft raising hopes that the main body of the craft might be intact Mummy genomes reveal just

Reuters | Lagos | Published: June 1 2017 1:27 pm Phone dealer Collins Nwosu holds the new Nokia 3310 model phone in his shop at the ‘Computer Village’ in Ikeja district in Nigeria’s commercial capital Lagos Nigeria (Source: Reuters) Related News For Europeans Nokia’s revamped ‘brick’ is a throwback to a simpler more innocent age when phones were for speaking and reading on the train meant buying a newspaper For Africans however the jazzed-up 3310 which relaunched in Nokia’s home market of Finland on Wednesday is an expensive imitation of the simple handset that remains the backbone of communication across the continent Although mobiles are now as common in Africa as they are in the United States or Europe smart-phones are rarer making up only one in three handsets in South Africa and one in four in Nigeria according to a 2016 study by the Pew Research Centre In many cases the cost of both handsets and data is the main factor constraining smart-phone sales But Africans also like the legendary durability of the ‘brick’ and its weeks-long battery – important considerations in countries where insurance and electricity cannot be taken for granted Even in the flashiest parts of Lagos Nigeria’s brash commercial capital bankers barking orders into the latest model iPhone will often have an ancient Nokia in their back pocket as a fail-safe for when their battery gives up “In Nigeria people like to use big phones but the small ones are also selling because not everybody can afford Android and the battery is really strong” said Clara Paul a phone saleswoman in Ikeja a tech market in the heart of Lagos In front of her on a street-side stall sat an array of Chinese-branded smart-phones alongside small Nokia handsets that in Europe would belong to a telephony museum On a good day Paul says she shifts as many as 10 for $10 each DURABLE BATTERY LASTS The original Nokia 3310 a basic talk and text phone was the world’s most popular device in 2000 and the first handset owned by many of today’s smart-phone users Once the world’s dominant phonemaker Nokia Oyj sold its handset operations to Microsoft in 2014 leaving it to focus on telecoms network equipment But its brand has gone back on the mobile market across much of Europe and India thanks to a licensing deal with HMD Global a new company led by former Nokia executives and backed by Chinese electronics giant Foxconn HMD has sole use of the Nokia brand on all phones and tablets for the next decade and it will pay royalties to Nokia Oyj “In Nigeria people like to use big phones but the small ones are also selling because not everybody can afford Android and the battery is really strong” said Clara Paul a phone saleswoman in Ikeja a tech market in the heart of Lagos (Source: Reuters) The makers of the new phone hope that its 22 hours of talk time and up to one month of standby time will heighten its appeal for customers looking for a break from smartphone overload or a reliable device for lively nights out However against the competition on the streets in Africa the new 3310’s $52 price tag is raising eyebrows “People love Nokias because they’re durable and the battery lasts for a very long time” said Colins Nwosu the head of retail at Nigerian mobile phone distributor Finet “But to be honest it’s a bit expensive” As well as its battery and durability the old Nokia has another advantage – its lack of high tech wizardry means it is untraceable and unhackable another factor for those living under repressive African governments During a recent meeting with Reuters in Johannesburg a senior Zimbabwean intelligence agent laid out on the table his three battered old Nokia handsets – the price he pays to ensure his movements and messages go undetected “Smart-phone” he said with a
