Akshara and Abhimanyu to separate after a leap: Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai

Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlataa Hai, the longest-running television programme, is about to take a small time jump. The current theme of the song centers on Anisha's death after Kairav rejects her, and Abhimanyu (Harshad Chopda) accuses Akshara (Pranali Rathod) of providing for her family. The show will skip a year, and Abhimanyu and Akshara will both be depicted as living apart. A close friend of the production company said, Because they discovered a good location, the producers are currently filming in Surat. Following the jump, Akshara will be seen residing in Dr. Kunal's (Mrunal Jain's) home, while Abhimanyu will now concentrate on his career. The separation track is frequently used in TV shows because viewers enjoy seeing the two main actors reunite after a conflict. How Abhimanyu and Akshara will resolve their differences and get back together is still up in the air. Rajan Shahi's Yeh Rishta is one of the longest-running television shows. The focus of the show is on family ties and the difficulties that relationships face. The show in its first season had Hina Khan and Karan Mehra essaying lead roles, Mohsin Khan and Shivangi Joshi played lead roles after the leap and now after the third leap, Harshad and Pranali play the lead couple. Mayank Arora, Sachin Tyagi, Karishma Sawant, Swati Chitnis, Ami Trivedi and Vinay Jain play important roles. The show has two families - Goenkas and Birlas and is based in Udaipur.

Husband-wife unique scandal, one is leader and the other is 'Robinhood'

Surat: The Crime Branch in Gujarat's Surat has arrested two thieves who used to help the poor with stolen money. The story of these VIP thieves, popularly known as 'Robinhood', is very interesting. The wife of a criminal who committed thefts in many cities of the country including Gujarat is a leader in Bihar and he himself used to play an active role in politics with his wife. This alleged Robinhood, who belongs to the world of politics and crime, has been caught by Surat police after a lot of hard work. One of the two arrested thieves is Mohammad Irfan alias Ujale Akhtar Sheikh while the other has been identified as Muzammil Ghulam Rasool Sheikh. Mohammad Irfan alias Ujale Akhtar Sheikh is a resident of the Sitamarhi district of Bihar. While his accomplice is also a resident of Pokharera village in the Sitamarhi district. However, he currently lives in Hyderabad. Mohammad Irfan alias Ujale Mohammad Akhtar Sheikh has been an expert in the theft business for years. He has committed thefts in Bihar, Delhi, Punjab and Surat city of Gujarat. On the night of July 27, he entered a bungalow in Raghuveer Society in Umra police station area of Surat city and escaped after stealing Rs 6.61 lakh. The car number was not from Surat, so the police were having problems catching him, but finally, Surat police arrested him from the Mithikhadi area of the Limbayat police station area. The police have also seized stolen goods and a loaded Indian pistol, and two cartridges from these two criminals. With this, the incident of theft in the Umra area of Surat has been solved by the Surat crime branch. About 5 years ago, the Delhi Police had also arrested him on charges of theft, even then he made headlines in the name of Robinhood. Mohammad Irfan has admitted that he used to go in a luxury car to carry out the theft and spend the stolen money on the poor, Surat Crime Branch Senior Police Inspector Lalit Baghadia said. However, the police are not believing his story at the moment. Both the arrested criminals used to do recce during the day and then go to steal at the location with the help of Google Map at night. The police or anyone else did not suspect his actions so the plate of the Zilla Parishad member was put on the car. He also came to thank the supporters living in Surat after his wife's victory.

Bengaluru: BBMP continues to sell faulty flags, citizens unhappy

National flag The sale and supply of flawed national flags have continued unabated and while BBMP is replacing these flags, citizens are upset. Avanthika V Sahel Sajid As the country gears up to celebrate 75 years of Independence day on August 15, this year, the BBMP (Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike) has undertaken the task of distributing 15 lakh national flags across Bengaluru as part of the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign. However, it has been subjected to criticism by the public for selling faulty flags. As of August 12, BBMP had received 13 lakh flags for distribution and expected more in the coming days. BBMP Commissioner Tushar Girinath said that they have already distributed 10 lakh flags and he expected BBMP would be selling another 5 lakh flags over the next three days, when BBMP would be stepping up its activities in the wake of celebrations. The majority of the suppliers for the flag as designated by the Union Ministry of Culture are from Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana. They were supplied to the Kannada and Culture Department which in turn handed them over to BBMP without checking for quality or conformity with the flag code. And BBMP went ahead and sold it. People have observed discrepancies in the length to height ratio and defects such as the Ashok Chakra being distorted or off-centre. TNM too observed several other inconsistencies such as unevenly cut edges, haphazard stitching and irregular shape in the make of the flags purchased from the BBMP office. Veeresh Bellur, an RTI activist who drew the attention of the authorities said, Some of the cloth material used were of sub-standard quality, the size of the flags were not even and the Ashoka Chakra was not properly placed in the middle. Such flags cannot be hoisted as they are clearly in violation of the National Flag Code, 2002 which specifies that the flag should be rectangular, having a 3:2 length to height (width) ratio, with the chakra in the centre. Meanwhile, netizens too have taken to Twitter to express their dismay over the quality of flags being sold by the BBMP. Why is bbmp distributing Indian national flag everywhere that too at a price .. to top it the quality n cutting of the flag is pathetic.. it's an insult ..(sic) asked Bhaskar Rao in a tweet, while another person P Jayanandan tweeted, BBMP Be responsible and take stringent actions. Har ghar Thiranga is not to insult the nation or national flag (sic) @CMofKarnataka Namasthe Sir. Flags supplied & sold by BBMP are not properly made, as shown here. Citizens are expressing sadness. pic.twitter.com/U8xVgoaupO naramuakn@gmail com (@naramuakn) August 5, 2022 While the flags are being sold at Rs 22 per piece across all zones and wards of Bengaluru in BBMP offices, retail shops, major malls and even door to door by BBMP workers and pourakarmikas, BBMP is now faced with the task of handling the exchange of the faulty flags that are being returned by the public. That also has not stopped the BBMP from aggressively pushing up the sales of flags as it has been encouraging residential welfare associations, apartment complexes and individual property owners to purchase the flags. Senior BBMP officials have been exhorting the general public to hoist flags from August 13 to 15 in every home. When asked about the issue, Special Commissioner (Administration) of BBMP, S Rangappa said, We received 10 lakh national flags from the Department of Kannada and Culture, of which 1-2% had minor issues, such as the Ashok Chakra being a little to the left or to the right or other damages that often occur doing bulk printing. While most of the defective flags have been identified and set aside to be returned to the supplier, the defective ones sold to the public are being exchanged and replaced. Rangappa said that the BBMP was not responsible for the direct procurement of flags from the suppliers and they merely redistributed the flags that they received from the Department of Kannada and Culture, the major nodal agency responsible for the procurement of flags. Joint Director (Bengaluru Division), Department of Kannada and Culture, Ashok N Chalavadi said that they had directly sent the 10 lakh flags they received from the Centre to the BBMP, without segregating or even opening them. These flags were supplied from suppliers in Surat and Ahmedabad. Ironically, Karnataka is home to Indias only BIS-certified flag-making unit at Hubballi. The unit makes khadi flags and has been suffering ever since the amendment to The Flag Code of India 2002, which now allows polyester and machine made flags for public display, apart from the traditional handspun and handwoven flags made of cotton, wool, silk or khadi bunting.

Ahead of I-Day, Kudumbashree members in Kerala are stitching 50 lakh national flags

Entrepreneurship The flags are being manufactured as part of the Union Governments Har Ghar Tiranga campaign, aimed at inspiring national integration. Maria Teresa Raju As the country gears up to celebrate its 75th Independence Day, 700 sewing units under Kudumbashree in Kerala are on overdrive, working to finish the 50 lakh national flags that will be hoisted in homes and institutions all over the state. In Peringazha in Ernakulam districts Kalamassery, Crystal Carry Bags, a sewing unit under Kudumbashree primarily engaged in manufacture of bags, was busy executing the orders it received ahead of the August 11 deadline. Eight members were engaged in measuring, cutting and stitching the flags to precision, under the leadership of Bindu, the president of the unit, and Jubina CP, the secretary. Operating from the first floor of Jubinas home, the one-year-old unit has five sewing machines and two fabric-cutting machines. Besides the eight women working from here, the unit also has other members working from their homes. Earlier, everybody used to work from their own homes. But I found that the products lacked the desired perfection. That was when we decided to take out a loan and set up this unit, says Jubina, who is also the secretary of the Kudumbashrees District Tailoring Consortium. In Ernakulam district, the national flags are stitched under the coordination of the Consortium. Established in 2020, the Consortiums flag-making works involve 235 women through its 55 units. They receive orders from schools, governmental and semi-governmental institutions and local self-governments. Ajith PA, District Programme Manager, said two lakh flags were expected to be distributed in Ernakulam. Orders for 1.6 lakh flags have been received as of August 8, he said. The fabric for the flags is sourced from Surat in Gujarat and Erode in Tamil Nadu. Following the recent amendment of the Flag Code of India, a polyester-mix fabric is used in stitching the flags. The initiative is part of the Union Governments Har Ghar Tiranga campaign, aimed at inspiring national integration. The women at Crystal say that it gives them immense pride to be a part of the countrys historic celebration through their work. Haseena Sherif (38), a member of the Kudumbashree for the past 12 years and has been engaged in stitching works for the past couple years said that this was the first time she was able to take part in a national campaign like this one. I am very proud and happy that I got this opportunity to make the flags, she said. Her colleague Jameela Firoz (40) also expressed her pleasure in being a part of the campaign. Women like us are often asked what we have done for the society and the country, our contributions always looked down on. Now I can say that mine were among the lakhs of flags that were hoisted around the country for Independence Day, she said, beaming. Unlike most of her colleagues, Jameela Firoz has never received any training in sewing. The women at Crystal credit their secretary Jubina for all their gains. A plus-two graduate, Jubina says she always believed in the need to be self-sustained, and did not like being dependent on others for her financial needs. She is well aware that financial independence is the first step towards being empowered. This was why she started her own sewing business at her home in 2018. In 2019, the Kalamassery East CDS trained women in stitching cloth bags. Jubina, Bindhu and a few others from Peringazha attended the training and started stitching cloth bags from their homes in December 2019. When the pandemic hit in 2020, the women branched out to making cloth masks. During that time, women who were not members of Kudumbashree were also included in the works. The lockdown affected the income sources of several households. The mask sales helped several of them through the difficult times, Jubina remembers. The Kudumbashree had also organised training for sewing masks under NIFT at Nellikuzhi Apparel Unit for one or two members from each block. Jubina attended the training from Peringazha. The Tailoring Consortium was established by the Ernakulam District Mission around this time. Later, when the Government of Kerala initiated distribution of ration kits through the PDS, the women were tasked with stitching cloth bags. Since then, we have continuously received cloth bag orders. There has not been a period where we didnt have any work, she adds. The difficulty in delivering materials and collecting the products from homes and a lack of perfection in the work prompted me to think of setting up a single unit. That is how Crystal was set up in its present form. A Rs 3.5 lakh loan was availed from the Kalamassery Municipalitys plan fund for the same, she explains. The unit initially functioned from a rented room but in an effort to cut down on monthly rent expenses, they later shifted to Jubinas home. The mask and cloth bag orders are what helped the unit stand on its feet, she admits. Media coverage of the units work has helped bring more women into its fold. Several of them are able to make substantial contributions to their familys income through the sewing work. For Jameela Firoz, the income from Crystal is what sustains her family now. My husband cuts fish at a local outlet. The recent trawling ban and the rough seas that followed brought in dull business. It was my earnings that helped pay the rent and take care of my childrens needs last month, she says. Pennamma KK (60) lost her husband to tuberculosis four months back. He was chronically ill for a long time. Pennamma is a retired peon in a cooperative bank. It is her income that sustained the family all along. Since her monthly pension is barely sufficient to pay back their housing loan, Pennamma joined Kudumbashree after her retirement. Rahima Siyad (36), a resident of HMT Colony, also acknowledged the positive contribution her income makes. I joined Kudumbashree a year and a half back when I saw the empowerment that the women around me got through it. Being able to take care of my childrens needs with my hard-earned money is extremely gratifying, she says. Another member Jaseela Ashraf (32) agrees with Rahima. Sewing has always been her favourite occupation. Even before she joined Crystal a year back, she used to make dresses for her family and friends. When I moved to Peringazha from my native Malappuram a short while back, it wasnt possible for me to set up my own venture soon. So, I joined the women in my neighbourhood and began working through Kudumbashree. Being financially independent earns me respect from my family and my opinions and suggestions are valued, she says.

Vasana police registered an FIR under sections of murder and destruction of evidence and made teams to investigate the matter. Ahmedabad crime branch, under the leadership of DCP Chaitanya Mandalik, started parallel investigations. Cops matched the body parts and both legs which were found to be belonging to a single person. The deceased was found to be 21-year-old Swayam Joshi. The police suspected Swayam's father Nilesh of the murder as the police were not able to contact him after the crime. Based on technical and ground intelligence, cops managed to nab Nilesh as he was about to escape to Gorakhpur and from there to Nepal. He was planning to take Awadh express train from Surat. Nilesh told police officials that his son Swayam was a drug and alcohol addict. On July 18, Nilesh and his deceased son Swayam had a fight over money. Swayam wanted money for alcohol, which Nilesh refused to give leading to a fight breaking out between the two resulting in Nilesh hitting Swayam with a kitchen stone.
