Earlier, disco was a popular form of dance, but today it's all about hip-hop and jive.
Increase in the exposure to reality shows has attracted a huge crowd of students to new dance forms. Since I was the only boy in my group who had two left feet, I started learning dance by going through tutorials on YouTube. Later, I became very interested in it and now I am thinking of pursuing it further," said year-old Ketan Shah from Thane. The concept of a three-day boot camp or workshop is picking up. People want quick results and jump from one dance form to another to master it.

Animal lovers are now worried about the safety of these homeless animals and are hoping for some change in the amendments for strict laws against the ones hurting the animals. On the backdrop of animal cruelty cases, which occurred in Navi Mumbai where two dogs bled to death after one was hit by a road and one's tail was cut by an unidentified person, the animal lovers expressed annoyance at the rising cruelty against animals.
It is seen that dogs are assaulted either because they don't want to be seen in the vicinity by locals or they have anger towards an animal lover who feeds the strays and want to vent it on the animal," said Nilesh Bhanage, founder of PAWS. It is seen that since to March as many as dogs from Thane, Diva, Dombivli and Thakurli suffered grievous injuries and were either paralysed or lost their lives. Only a few could survive and heal from the wounds they suffered.
Many just report to the NGOs so that the dog receives proper treatment. Also, even if these animals survive they are physically challenged and it then becomes difficult for them to survive as they find it difficult to move around. At times even their spine is damaged and they are unable to move," said Bhaskar Chauhan, canine behaviourist and trainer and volunteer at PAL.
Animal lovers blame lenient laws that play an important role in letting off the assaulter with merely a fine. Even if a person is convicted they have to pay a fine of Rs New laws should be passed and strict action should be taken against the culprits," added Bhanage.

Believed to be one of the three-and-a-half auspicious days in the year, which includes Padwa and Dussehra, this day attracts many believers to shell out big bucks.
Asha Ravindranath, one such Hiranandani resident, said, "This is one of the few days when an auspicious task does not need a muharat as the day itself is auspicious. On this day, we conduct a simple puja at home and then buy a small quantity of gold, silver or some valuable as we believe that the value of what is bought on this day multiplies through the year, bringing prosperity and wealth.
However, we decided to wait and complete the booking of the flat on this day to bring in good fortune in this new phase of our life.
So like every year, we bought a few toys, clothes and sweets and distributed it to street children near the Jain temple," said S V Jain, another resident. With thousands of these denizens flocking to city markets, jewellery stores, car showrooms and realtors, this day proved to be a blessing for businessmen.

The facility, launched in Mumbai following the Esther Anuhya case at LTT, has already been partially shut down since the last fortnight forcing passengers to fall prey to rogue auto drivers who openly fleece them by charging exorbitant rates, specially in the evening hours.
The prepaid facility was mostly used by passengers arriving by long distance trains at odd hours and found the services economical and reliable.
While the union operating the services said there was a depleting volume of passengers for the services, commuters and activists blamed that the facility was not available beyond 8 pm when they are the most needed and are unavailable beyond Ghodbunder to Bhayander, Borivli, Kalyan and Bhiwandi routes where the volume of fleecing by drivers was comparatively more. A survey done by the transport authority inshowed that barely 17 commuters used the facility daily.
However, nearly two years later, the response hasn't increased with union members claiming the number of daily takers drops to barely 10 passengers at times making it difficult for the union to keep the facility running. The facility was operational for a few hours till recently and was found locked when the TOI team visited. Meanwhile with the services unavailable, several rogue drivers have started to blatantly park their autos in front of the railway station.
These drives have often get into fights with passengers and bully them into using their services as the police authorities in the area have turned a blind eye.
We want the service to continue but we are unable to reach the break-even point," complained an office-bearer of the Viju Natekar auto union that is operating the service. Commuters, on the other hand, claim the services aren't available after evening when the requirement is the highest as majority long distance trains arrive at Thane after 8 pm till early morning.
When contacted, H B Patil, regional transport officer said the department will look into the issue and take appropriate decision for the benefit of commuters after studying the same. We have partially shut the services since the last few days and are mulling to completely close operations from next week as even auto drivers complain of not getting adequate fares.
We want the service to continue but we are unable to reach the break-even point.

The group of residents not only complained to the TMC about the menace caused by food trucks operating in the stretch from Lok Puram to Kashinath Ghanekar since the past one-and-a-half years, but also ensured that the authorities forced the vendors to shut the outlets which were running illegally on the roadside. There were some 15 food trucks selling various doing bussiness on the busy stretch.
Residents complained that the illegal outlets were not only causing nuisance to citizens, but also adding to the traffic chaos. We initially requested the vendors to at least not park in front of our entrance gates, but it was of no use. Also the area had become extremely dangerous for children to walk as footpaths were being occupied by hawkers and the roads were majorly blocked by these trucks.
Then, we decided to take matters into our own hands and ourselves approached the TMC," says a resident requesting anonymity. When contacted, Ashok Burpulle, head of encroachment department, he confirmed of complaints and said the issue was sorted out. We sent our team and stopped the illegal business," he said.

Apr 26, The minor was on Tuesday produced in court and sent to child home while Mammu alias Wasim Sanjay Irani, a resident of Ambivli in Kalyan, was sent to judicial custody.
We recovered seven two-wheelers worth Rs 3. We also found 10 mobile phones worth Rs 1 lakh from them. They executed their robbery plans mostly in Thane, said Sanjay Shinde, deputy commissioner of police from Zone 3.

Despite carrying out a number of awareness drives about noise pollution, continuous honking and blaring music, the city continues to be a noisy place.
They want the authorities as well as politicians and celebrities to come together and work towards putting an end to this menace. Autodrivers continue to honk relentlessly throughout the day.
The noise levels increase drastically during festivals with pandals playing blaring music trying to compete with others. Even though the high court HC has instructed the government to curb the noise levels in the state, especially during festivals, the levels continue to be way above the permissible levels, claim citizen activists.
Mahesh Bedekar, whose PIL brought the otherwise ignored issue of noise pollution to the HC's attention, said, "Speaking about noise pollution a couple of years ago was close to impossible as it wasn't even considered to be an issue, despite it having serious health implications.

After carrying out awareness drives for years and receiving support from the HC, many citizens are now taking up this cause. Even the police have become vigilant. The government pollution control bodies needs to come up with ways to curb the main source of pollution that is caused by noisy vehicles like autos, cars and even high-end bikes," said Dr. Activists believe that the implementation of the law, coupled with the influence of prominent societal figures like politicians and celebrities, will help curb this issue and make Thane a better and much more liveable city.
If these communities embraced and propagated the idea of a noise-free celebration, it will surely influence a major part of society, which looks up to them as role models. Many politicians continue to support the use of loudspeakers during festivals to make their voters happy.

They need to adopt new strategies," said Nilesh Ambekar, another citizen activist. The middle class bastions of Naupada and Uthalsar areas in Thane witness the highest volume of distribution losses of water apparently due to rampant thefts and leakage compared to neighbouring Mumbra and Diva.
Records stated in a study undertaken by the water department to understand the present water distribution and management in Thane reveal that while litres per person daily water is drawn by the Naupada ward, barely litres reaches the end user. The study, exclusively accessed by TOI, shows that not only does the ward get excess water as compared to the standard litres per capita daily prescribed by the Central Public Health and Environmental Engineering Organisation CPHEEO mandate but an apparent faulty distribution network is leading to loss of around litres daily per person.
Meanwhile, Uthalsar ward ranks second with around litres per person lost daily. Interestingly, Mumbra ward that is at the fag end of the distribution network sees the least volume of losses with barely 51 litres per person lost daily as each of its residents get nearly litres as against litres supplied.
The average distribution losses for the city remains at 75 litres per person as just litres is received as against the supply of The TMC claims that nearly per cent of its water supply daily is lost due to thefts and unplugged leakages causing a huge deficit to the administration that pays nearly Rs 30 lakh daily for sourcing million litres daily from various agencies. The readings are part of a study underaken by the administration to understand the quantum of losses in each of the administrative wards following outcry by the residents and activists in recent times.
The readings, said officials, was taken based on the meter readings available at each of the storage facilities in the wards. Each of the wards have five to 10 main distribution points that record the supply before it is passed on to consumers. However, lack of metering system for individual consumers is proving to be a huge setback for the civic body to come to an accurate conclusion about the losses.
Civic officials justified that there have been corrections and action on pilferages and thefts in the network and the litre per capita per day losses are likely to be less in the upcoming water audit. The introduction of water meters for all connections that is in the pipeline will help them shortlist areas with maximum losses and help plug wastage or non revenue water.
