This is important for the protection of lives of self, relatives and common people… The apex court has recently issued guidelines, asking states to take strict measures such as ensuring large gatherings are prevented in markets and public places, wherever possible, not giving permission to religious and social programmes.

Night curfew will continue and police patrolling will be stricter on roads and other public places.

During this, free distribution of masks will continue,” Ashok Gehlot said.

He who must not be named. It appears the W.H.O. has skipped the next Greek letter after Nu to name the new variant. The next letter is Xi. The concern is that W.H.O. is again avoiding any discomfort for the Chinese government. So they named it Omicron...

कितने लोग जानते है इस चेहरे को। ये वीरांगना बीनादास है, अपने दीक्षांत समारोह में अंग्रेज गवर्नर स्टैन्ली जैक्सन को जान से मारने के लिए गोली चलाने वाली ये वीरांगना आज़ादी के बाद लावारिस हालत में मरी। 26 December 1986 को छिन्न-भिन्न अवस्था में सड़क के किनारे मिला था शव।
