She detailed his disappearance Sunday from her home in Stoulton, England, in a post on Twitter, calling it a "very sad day." She added that the rabbit was too old to breed now, "So please bring him back." A very sad day. Guinness world record Darius has been stolen from his home.

Soon, a 24/7 digital window to file cases from anywhere | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Limiting the role of registry in prioritising cases, the phase-III of the e-Courts project, currently in draft stage, has proposed a 24/7 digital window to litigants and lawyers to file cases from anywhere, anytime with provision of scheduling digital hearings in an open court, ensuring compliance of timelines by both judges and litigants.

15-day curfew in Maharashtra: Shootings on hold, theatres shut; FWICE to approach CM Uddhav Thackeray – Times of India

Folk activist Vira Sathidar dies

IT WOULD seem that Vira Sathidar’s role in Court could well be a case of reel imitating real. Like Narayan Kamble, the character he portrayed in the 2014 critically acclaimed film, Sathidar was a poet, folk singer and an activist – all rolled into one. Sathidar died of complications arising out of Covid at a Nagpur hospital on Tuesday. He was 61. His son Rahul said, “He was admitted to AIIMS for treatment of Covid-19. He developed pneumonia and died around 4 am Tuesday after developing complications.” “I am still reeling from the news. It’s still strange to talk about him as ‘was’. One of the nicest people I have ever worked with,” says Chaitanya Tamhane, the director of Court. Sathidar, whose original name was Vipul Vairagade, used to herd cows as a child in a village in W...

Exam centres can become hotspots, cancel Boards: Kejriwal to CBSE

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal appealed to the Central Board of Secondary Education on Tuesday to cancel the year-end Board exams for classes X and XII in view of the fourth wave of Covid cases in the national capital. Kejriwal said the city has seen close to 3,500 cases in the past 24 hours, the highest so far. “Around 6 lakh children will write these exams and 1 lakh teachers will be involved. These exams centres can become hotspots. The health and well being of children is very important. I appeal to CBSE with folded hands that the exams be cancelled. Some other method of evaluation can be thought of — online or internal assessment perhaps. But cancelling these exams is crucial. Many countries have also cancelled exams; some Indian states have done it too. These ex...

Covid-19 has pushed half of India’s poor away from nutritious food: report

The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions that followed has resulted in half of India’s poor people being deprived of nutritious food. In its 2021 Global Food Policy Report, the International Food Policy Research Institute has warned of severe and long lasting consequences due to the contraction in diet quality. India was one of the first countries to implement a complete lockdown when cases and deaths due to the pandemic were relatively low. The lockdown, the report said, caught policymakers off guard as evident by the large number of migrants who took to the roads to reach their home states – this, the report said, had led to a surge in infections across the country. Temporary and migrant workers were worst hit by the pandemic as the lockdown brought with...

Champions’ stuff: Mumbai come back from the dead as KKR flounder from a winning position against their bogey team

On Monday, two teams heavily dependent on their abundant batting riches faced off in a high-scoring thriller. Barely 24 hours later at a different venue, Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders duelled in a moderate-scoring, but equally thrilling, slow-burning affair. The result was a tense 10-run win for Mumbai, underlining why they are such a formidable unit in this competition, registering a rousing fightback from a seemingly hopeless position. At 104/3 in 12.4 overs, KKR seemed to have the match in their kitty, before they imploded under dramatic circumstances against the crafty spin of Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya. Chahar, Krunal and their classical tunes A target of 153 looked like a straightforward chase, more so after the openers laid the platform with a 72-run s...
