Scindia old boy Foreign Secretary Shiv Shankar Menon at work?

Some news from my school.

There's a proposal to draw a ropeway to the Gwalior fort, which houses The Scindia School, from Phoolbagh in the city. While Jyotiraditya Scindia, now President of the Board of Governors, has opposed it for the "environmental damage" it may cause to the fort, BJP's Yashodhara Raje favours it for she believes the ropeway will bring "glamour" and promote tourism in Gwalior. Now Foreign Secretary Shiv Shankar Menon has also stepped in and written to the MP Chief Secretary claiming it would affect the school's compound and the principal's residence.

It may be unfair to comment on this without an idea of the project but it sure is an interesting development. Also heartening, provided it is not politically motivated, to see Menon take interest in the school. Get more of this story here.

surely this won't see the light of day? anyway although the number of tourists might increase i can only hope that the inflow doesn't screw up the school's activities...and also a big hell yeah to ss menon for managing to look up from the nuke deal...
