The question of what does it mean to be a citizen has no
simple answer. On a purely definition based description,
what it means to be a citizen is that a person is a
legally recognised inhabitant of the country they live
in – in the UK, this means they pay taxes and are
entitles to the help of the benefits and NHS systems.
However, in practice, answering the question what does
it mean to be a citizen is far from easy. As new rules
and tests for people wanting British citizenship show,
being a citizen is about far more than a legal status.
It is about understanding and accepting – and being a
part of the culture, rather than an observer from the

Speculation, spurious. And the anticipation
Since Fiat took a controlling interest in Detroit's
then-bankrupt Chrysler back in June of this year,
fans of Italian cars have been in a tizzy about what

Now, if all goes according to plans announced just
this week (see AutoNews, W4), it looks like Fiat's
mechanicals will underpin the majority of Chrysler
vehicles in the coming years.
But before most of those cars arrive in 2012, a
North American version of the Fiat 500 will go on
sale here about a year from now.

Goa should focus
only on tourism: Arcelor Mittal honcho
Mr Andrzej Wypych, the HR director of Arcelor Mittal,
the Poland-based world's largest steel maker company
on Saturday said that Goa should refrain from
welcoming any industrial investments, and must

ArcelorMittal, who is currently in Goa on a leisure
trip told 'The Navhind Times' that Goa can easily
survive without further industrial production units.

at any cost,' Mr Wypych observed, pointing out that
the industrial business should be left to other
parts of India. "I wish this area doesn't have any
industrial investment,' he reiterated. [NT]
