Special screening for Short film Dhaaga and teaser launch for Accident or Conspiracy Godhra in Mumbai https://www.swarajyatimes.in/special-screening-for-short-film-dhaaga-and-teaser-launch-for-accident-or-conspiracy-godhra-in-mumbai https://www.swarajyatimes.in/special-screening-for-short-film-dhaaga-and-teaser-launch-for-accident-or-conspiracy-godhra-in-mumbai Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], May 29: The special screening of the short film ‘Dhaaga’ and the teaser launch of ‘Accident or Conspiracy Godhra’ took place at the five-star hotel in Mumbai, organized by Om Trinetra Films and ArtVerse Studios. The event was attended by the film’s producer B.J. Purohit, director M.K. Shivaksha, actress Akshita Namdev, and several other Bollywood guests. The short film ‘Dhaaga’ highlights the importance of addressing the issue of mental illness along with the strained relationship between siblings. It presents a beautiful and emotionally-driven story with remarkable acting and direction. ‘Dhaaga’ will be released soon on the Hotstar Disney platform.


In recent times, Bollywood has been producing cinema based on real-life stories, which were not discussed by filmmakers before. Films like ‘Kashmir File’ and ‘Kerala Story’ were made on true events with courage, and they were well-received by the audience. Now, young director M.K. Shivaksha is also making a film based on a true incident that changed the political landscape of the country in the past two decades. The film ‘Accident or Conspiracy Godhra’ by producer B.J. Purohit portrays the backdrop of the Godhra riots. The announcement teaser of the film reveals that it is not based on fiction or any form of propaganda but rather on the report issued by the Nanavati Commission, which was set up to investigate the Godhra train burning incident. The film aims to uncover the truth of what happened in Godhra. Was it a spontaneous act where some individuals set fire to the train in a fit of frenzy, or was it a pre-planned conspiracy?


Producer B.J. Purohit explains, ‘People are familiar with the Godhra incident as part of the Hindu-Muslim riots that occurred in 2002. However, the post-Godhra incidents are seen as pre-Godhra incidents. So, what is the Godhra incident? What happened before the post-Godhra incidents? Why do people consider the pre-Godhra incidents as post-Godhra incidents? What kind of mentality is involved in concealing the truth of Godhra and presenting it as an accident or a spontaneous fight? Why didn’t the pain of the 59 people who lost their lives in this incident reach the conscience of the nation? This film sheds light on the pre-planned conspiracy behind the incident that took place at Godhra station on February 27, 2002. It explores every aspect of this event through the work of the Nanavati-Shah Mehta Commission. The facts and information revealed during the commission’s investigation are presented to the audience through cinema.


The film also explains that the Godhra incident was orchestrated to terrorize Hindus and counter other seditious activities. The internet and media have distorted it and presented it in a way that lifts the veil for the public.


Director M.K. Shivaksha says, ‘We have been working on ‘Accident or Conspiracy Godhra’ for the past five years. I want to emphasize that during these years, extensive research has been conducted. It would be wrong to say that we are making this film today. The film seeks to answer questions such as whether the plan to attack the train was pre-determined and, if so, to what extent it was planned. He reaches out to various universities for his research, explores archives, and studies primary sources to find answers to these questions.”

Futuristic Manhole Cleaning Solution introduced in Ujjain, MP with Bandicoot Robots. https://www.swarajyatimes.in/futuristic-manhole-cleaning-solution-introduced-in-ujjain-mp-with-bandicoot-robots https://www.swarajyatimes.in/futuristic-manhole-cleaning-solution-introduced-in-ujjain-mp-with-bandicoot-robots Futuristic Manhole Cleaning Solution introduced in Ujjain, MP with Bandicoot Robots.

Ujjain has always been known as a city of temples and monuments and over the years became a hub for exports of textiles and agricultural products. With the rising population within the city, challenges related to the sewage system rose as well. Thus, as a part of calculated planning the government representatives of Ujjain collaborated with Genrobotics to introduce Bandicoot,  the world first robotic scavenger to clean the manholes.

Genrobotics, a robotics company specialising in sewer and manhole cleaning, has revolutionised the process of manhole cleaning via advanced robotic technology. Bandicoot has made the city's manhole cleaning process fully automated, providing a safer and more efficient solution to the age-old problem of manhole cleaning.

Ujjain, the fifth-largest city in Madhya Pradesh by population, had been facing the challenge of cleaning its extensive sewage system for years. Compared to other municipal corporations of MP, Ujjain has a more extensive sewage system of around 15 to 20 thousand manholes according to official data. With the launch of Bandicoot robot the city's manhole cleaning process will be improved to a great extent. Robotic technology allows for a thorough and faster cleaning process, enabling manholes to be cleaned in minutes compared to hours with traditional manual methods. The Bandicoot robot can perform all the tasks that a human would do during the cleaning process. Apart from Ujjain, Indore is the cleanest  city in India where five Bandicoots are currently operational.

The handover of Bandicoot robot was performed by Shri.Mukesh Tatkal, Mayor of  Ujjain, in the presence of Sri. Kriti Chouhan, SVM Additional Commissioner, Sri. Aditya Nagar, Additional Municipal Commissioner Ujjain, Shri P.C Yadav Executive Engineer and Shri. Vijay Goyal Assistant Engineer. On the launch occasion, Mr. Arun George, Director Genrobotics commented, "We are thrilled to introduce Bandicoot robots to Ujjain, to revolutionize the way manhole cleaning is done. Our innovative technology will not only improve the speed and efficiency of manhole cleaning but also eliminate the risk posed to the lives of sanitation workers involved in this hazardous task.”

Bandicoot with its human-like robotic arms, specially designed bucket system, and its sewerage and waterproof cameras can eliminate the requirements for human entry and offer an effective solution for manhole cleaning problem. Other cleaning techniques do exist, such as sucking and grabbing machines; however, sucking machines are unable to remove the pure solid wastes, while grabbing machines can only clean less than 20% of the area inside a manhole. Due to these drawbacks, these techniques have not been highly successful and this is where Bandicoot robots have become a game changer.

How Indian Students Can Benefit from Better Opportunities in International Universities  https://www.swarajyatimes.in/how-indian-students-can-benefit-from-better-opportunities-in-international-universities https://www.swarajyatimes.in/how-indian-students-can-benefit-from-better-opportunities-in-international-universities How Indian Students Can Benefit from Better Opportunities in International Universities 

Indian students who are interested in pursuing higher education in international universities can benefit greatly from the many opportunities that are available to them. With the globalization of education and the increase in access to technology and information, students from India can now take advantage of a variety of resources to help them succeed in their academic and professional pursuits.
The statistics study given out by RedSeer says that by 2024, around 1.8 million students will be spending around 85 million USD on their education abroad. It is estimated that over 30 lakh Indians went abroad for higher studies between 2017 and 2022. 12% of Indian students studying abroad for higher education are from Andhra Pradesh, 12% from Punjab, and 11% from Maharashtra. 
Co-Founder of Study Metro – Mr Abhishek Bajaj says One of the main benefits of studying at an international university is the exposure to a diverse range of people and cultures. This can broaden a student's worldview, enhance their communication skills, and provide them with a unique perspective on global issues. Additionally, international universities often offer a wider range of courses and academic programs than those available in India, allowing students to explore new areas of interest and develop specialized skills that can be applied in a global context. According to gitnux.com, 70% of Indian students studying abroad for higher education cite better quality of education, 68% cite greater career prospects, and 50% cite the graduate route (2-year work visa after study) as their top three reasons.
Further he says - Another benefit of studying at an international university is the opportunity to network with professionals from around the world. This can help students to build connections that may be useful in their future careers and can also provide them with access to a range of job opportunities in different countries.
Furthermore, many international universities offer scholarships and financial aid to international students, making it more affordable for Indian students to pursue higher education abroad. In addition, some universities may offer internship and work-study programs that can help students gain valuable work experience while also earning money to help cover their expenses. And these all information one can garner from companies like Study Metro who provides counseling for study overseas programs  
To take advantage of these benefits, Indian students should start by researching different international universities and identifying those that offer programs that align with their academic and career goals. They should also consider factors such as location, cost of living, and language requirements when selecting a university.
In addition, Indian students should take steps to prepare themselves for the transition to studying in a new country. This may include improving their language skills, familiarizing themselves with the culture and customs of the host country, and preparing for any required standardized tests such as the TOEFL or GRE.
In conclusion, Indian students can greatly benefit from pursuing higher education in international universities. By taking advantage of the many resources and opportunities available, students can develop new skills, gain valuable experience, and broaden their horizons in ways that can positively impact their academic and professional careers.

SS Rajamouli's plans for Indus Valley film hindered by Pakistan's refusal https://www.swarajyatimes.in/ss-rajamoulis-plans-for-indus-valley-film-hindered-by-pakistans-refusal https://www.swarajyatimes.in/ss-rajamoulis-plans-for-indus-valley-film-hindered-by-pakistans-refusal Renowned Indian filmmaker SS Rajamouli has expressed his desire to create a film on the ancient civilization of Indus Valley, but unfortunately, Pakistan has been unyielding in their stance to allow the production to take place in their country.

Rajamouli, who is known for his epic films such as Baahubali and RRR, has reportedly been interested in exploring the history and culture of the Indus Valley civilization for a long time. However, the filmmaker recently revealed in an interview that his plans have hit a roadblock due to the lack of cooperation from Pakistan.

According to Rajamouli, he had initially approached the Pakistani authorities with a proposal to shoot portions of the film in the country, given that the Indus Valley civilization was located in present-day Pakistan. However, he was met with a firm refusal, citing various reasons such as security concerns and the sensitive nature of the topic.

Despite several attempts to convince the Pakistani authorities, Rajamouli's efforts were in vain, leaving him disappointed and frustrated. The filmmaker stated that he was eager to showcase the rich heritage and history of the Indus Valley civilization on the big screen, and hoped that he would be able to find a solution to the current impasse.

The Indus Valley civilization, also known as the Harappan civilization, flourished in the northwestern region of the Indian subcontinent from 2600 BCE to 1900 BCE. It is considered to be one of the earliest civilizations in the world, with a complex system of governance, advanced urban planning, and a thriving trade network.

With Rajamouli's vision and expertise in creating larger-than-life films, it would be a shame if his plans for the Indus Valley film were to be thwarted by political tensions. We can only hope that a solution can be found, and that audiences will be able to witness the grandeur and magnificence of this ancient civilization on the silver screen.

After ‘Mintoo’ TV Series International Release and Success, I am Designing a Superhero Now – Says Director Lomharsh https://www.swarajyatimes.in/after-mintoo-tv-series-international-release-and-success-i-am-designing-a-superhero-now-says-director-lomharsh https://www.swarajyatimes.in/after-mintoo-tv-series-international-release-and-success-i-am-designing-a-superhero-now-says-director-lomharsh Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India] : ‘Superheroes are always a dream and fantasy for kids and adults both. And like in Hollywood, In India, we have very limited superheroes’, told Director Lomharsh. Lomharsh is currently busy designing a superhero for an International Campaign, and this superhero will be part of every individual day to day life.


In Nov 2022, Mintoo – A TV Series based on the journey of a woman, was released internationally. Mintoo was Lomharsh’s brainchild and received great response from international audiences in the US, UK, Germany and Japan. As a filmmaker, everyone attempts to create characters which will be remembered in the coming time, which is the thought behind creating ‘Mintoo’. I just don’t want to create fiction but to create a character which can be felt like part of us, says Lomharsh. After Mintoo’s Success, I felt more confident and decided to take over the task of designing a SUPERHERO.


Rashmi Mishra Played the lead character of ‘Mintoo’, and she told that ‘Mintoo’s character was challenging to play as it portrays the real struggle of today’s independent working women. The pain, the anger, the betrayal, the love and every other sense of women’s sentiments was fulfilled in the character ‘Mintoo’. I still remember a scene we were filming where I was being chased from an incident from the past. While shooting for this scene, I really started shivering and crying. Everyone thought it was a brilliant piece of act, but inside I knew it came out as a reality. I was so involved in the character during the shoot.


When asked to tell more about this Superhero, director Lom told that ‘ I cannot reveal much at this stage, but it is going to be an interesting one, finally after a long time, we are going to witness a witty and ‘thoda sa teekha’ SUPERHERO. We have been working on it for the last 2 years, and now very soon we will start shooting the campaign for the same. Initially, this superhero will be revealed to a digital audience, and later on, if all goes well, then this superhero will be seen on the big screen as well.


Director Lomharsh is known for Yeh Hai India, his debut feature, which has been applauded at Cannes and later on awarded the ‘Best Movie and Best Director’ Award at FOG, USA. The film also received the Radio Mirchi Music Award of 2020 for the ‘Best Raag Inspired Song of the Year Award’ for the Dhola song in this feature film. He also made Chicken Biryani Series which won 24 Nominations and Awards, Nationally and Internationally.


Shilpa Mittal, Partner and Co-Founder of Shilom Media LLP – A production house based in Jaipur and Mumbai, told, ‘As a Production house, we always look for something new and challenging, and this year is bringing so much unique for us’ We started with AD campaign in January followed by an International Film ‘PLAN-ET’ based on global warming issue and we also recently recorded Symphony at Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai for our upcoming feature film. We are equally excited to see how director Lomharsh will be bringing this superhero to life.

Twitter to remove legacy blue ticks starting today, only paid users will be verified https://www.swarajyatimes.in/twitter-to-remove-legacy-blue-ticks-starting-today-only-paid-users-will-be-verified https://www.swarajyatimes.in/twitter-to-remove-legacy-blue-ticks-starting-today-only-paid-users-will-be-verified Twitter will remove blue verified badges from profiles without a Twitter Blue subscription today, April 20 (4/20). The company initially announced plans to remove the legacy blue ticks on April 1, but the change applied to select accounts. However, Twitter and its owner Elon Musk appear to be firm with the decision this time and want all users to get a subscription to retain the blue badge.

Before Elon Musk's takeover last year, Twitter verified accounts of public interest, such as journalists, actors, politicians, etc. The badge also represents authenticity, since there could be many fake accounts of celebrities and notable profiles. However, Musk believes that the badge creates a status symbol and he wants anyone on the platform to be verified for a minimal fee.

Twitter has also laid down rules for a profile to be verified. For instance, Twitter says an account must be active in the past 30 days to subscribe to Twitter Blue. The account also must not have signs of being misleading or deceptive. Moreover, only users with a verified mobile number can get the blue tick on the platform.

However, these measures may not be full-proof as there are many accounts on the platform, managed by humans but exhibit spam-like behaviour. Easy verifications may solidify their spam-like behaviour on Twitter.

In the old system, users with the legacy badge were followed by Twitter's Verified profile. The profile suggested that the platform had over 4 lakh verified profiles. Recently, the Twitter page unfollowed all users with the legacy blue badge.

While announcing Twitter's decision to remove legacy blue badges, company owner Elon Musk invoked the 4/20 joke. The number is colloquially associated with marijuana smokers and Musk has also repeatedly joked about the number in the past after his photo of smoking marijuana on the Joe Rogan podcast got viral. Coincidentally, he announced his plans to buy Twitter around the same time last year. What was earlier thought to be a joke came true just a couple of months later.

It means Twitter will remove the legacy badges, if not today, but certainly tomorrow. The company is finding different ways to boost its revenue. Musk has also criticised Twitter's previous management for running the company like a non-profit organisation. With a subscription that promises much-demanded features, such as long-form tweets and an edit/undo button, Twitter will hope for some form of cash inflow.

How to retain Blue badge on Twitter

Those with the legacy badge will need to buy the subscription or lose the blue tick.

Failed Ceasefire: Russia's Complex Role in Sudan's Deadly Conflict Revealed" https://www.swarajyatimes.in/failed-ceasefire-russias-complex-role-in-sudans-deadly-conflict-revealed https://www.swarajyatimes.in/failed-ceasefire-russias-complex-role-in-sudans-deadly-conflict-revealed Russia's Role in the Deadly Sudan Conflict: Attempted Ceasefire Falls Apart

The ongoing conflict in Sudan has been a source of concern for the international community, with reports of violence and humanitarian crises emerging from the region. Recently, an attempted ceasefire brokered by Russia was heralded as a potential step towards peace. However, the situation quickly unraveled, revealing Russia's complex role in the conflict.

The conflict in Sudan has its roots in long-standing ethnic tensions and power struggles. In recent years, clashes between the government forces led by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and the rebel groups, particularly in the Darfur region, have resulted in widespread violence, displacement of civilians, and human rights abuses.

In an effort to address the situation, Russia stepped in as a mediator and brokered a ceasefire agreement between the Sudanese government and the rebel groups. The ceasefire was seen as a glimmer of hope for a peaceful resolution to the conflict, with both sides agreeing to stop the fighting and engage in negotiations.

However, the ceasefire quickly fell apart, with reports of continued violence and violations of the agreement. This has raised questions about Russia's role in the conflict and its true intentions.

Russia's involvement in Sudan has been viewed by some as an attempt to expand its influence in Africa and gain access to valuable resources, such as oil and minerals. Sudan is strategically located in the Red Sea region and has significant economic potential. By positioning itself as a mediator in the conflict, Russia has sought to strengthen its political and economic ties with Sudan, while also projecting itself as a global player in conflict resolution.

However, critics argue that Russia's involvement may not be purely altruistic. Some accuse Russia of providing military support to the Sudanese government forces, despite an arms embargo imposed by the United Nations. There have been reports of Russian mercenaries operating in Sudan, allegedly supporting government forces in their military campaigns against rebel groups.

Moreover, Russia's role in Sudan has also been seen as complicating efforts by other international actors, such as the United States and the European Union, to address the conflict. The competing interests of different external powers, including Russia, in Sudan have further complicated the situation and hindered the prospects for peace.

The situation in Sudan remains fluid, with ongoing violence and human rights abuses affecting the civilian population. The failed ceasefire has highlighted the complexities of the conflict and Russia's role in it. As the international community continues to grapple with the situation, finding a sustainable solution to the conflict remains a daunting challenge.

In conclusion, while Russia's attempted ceasefire in Sudan was initially seen as a positive step towards peace, it quickly fell apart, revealing the complex dynamics at play in the conflict. Russia's role in Sudan, viewed by some as strategic and self-serving, has raised questions about its true intentions and impact on the prospects for peace in the region.

Mastering Google Ads: A Comprehensive Guide for Beginners https://www.swarajyatimes.in/mastering-google-ads-a-comprehensive-guide-for-beginners https://www.swarajyatimes.in/mastering-google-ads-a-comprehensive-guide-for-beginners Mastering Google Ads: A Comprehensive Guide for Beginners

In this article, we will provide you with a comprehensive guide on how to get started with Google Ads, including topics such as AdWords, Google account sign-up, Google Ads login, Google Ads Editor, Google Ads coupon, and more.

What is Google Ads?

Google Ads is an online advertising platform that allows businesses to create and display ads on Google's search results pages, YouTube, and other websites and apps. Formerly known as Google AdWords, Google Ads has evolved over the years to provide advertisers with a wide range of advertising options, targeting tools, and metrics to measure the performance of their campaigns.

Google Account Sign-Up

To get started with Google Ads, you will need to have a Google account. If you don't already have one, you can easily sign up for a free Google account by visiting the Google homepage (www.google.com) and clicking on the "Sign In" button in the top right corner. From there, you can select the "Create account" option and follow the prompts to set up your Google account. Make sure to provide accurate and up-to-date information during the sign-up process.

Google Ads Login

Once you have a Google account, you can log in to Google Ads by visiting the Google Ads homepage (ads.google.com) and clicking on the "Sign In" button in the top right corner. Enter your Google account email address and password, and click "Next" to access your Google Ads account. If you have multiple Google accounts, make sure to select the correct one associated with your Google Ads account.

AdWords Login

AdWords was the original name of Google's online advertising platform, which has now been rebranded as Google Ads. However, some advertisers may still refer to it as AdWords out of habit. If you come across the term "AdWords login," it simply refers to logging in to your Google Ads account using your Google account credentials, as described in the previous section.

Google Ads Editor

Google Ads Editor is a free downloadable desktop application that allows advertisers to manage their Google Ads campaigns offline. With Google Ads Editor, you can create, edit, and optimize your ads and campaigns without an internet connection, making it a convenient tool for making bulk changes or working on multiple accounts. You can download Google Ads Editor from the Google Ads website (ads.google.com) and sign in with your Google account credentials to start using it.

Google Ads Coupon

As a new advertiser, you may be eligible for a Google Ads coupon, which is a promotional code that offers a certain amount of credit to use towards your Google Ads campaigns. Google Ads coupons are periodically offered by Google as an incentive for new advertisers to try out the platform. You can redeem a Google Ads coupon by entering the code during the campaign setup process or in your account settings. Keep in mind that the value and availability of Google Ads coupons may vary by location and promotional period.

Tips for Success with Google Ads

As you start using Google Ads, it's important to keep in mind some best practices to maximize your chances of success. Here are a few tips to help you get started:

  1. Set clear goals: Define your marketing objectives and goals before creating your Google Ads campaigns. This will help you choose the right ad formats, keywords, and targeting options to align with your business objectives.

  2. Do keyword research: Conduct thorough keyword research to identify the keywords that are most relevant to your business and have the highest search volume. Use the Google Ads Keyword Planner or other keyword research tools to find the right keywords for your campaigns.

  3. Create compelling ads: Write engaging and relevant

Swain, is the youngest Asian with the biggest personal worth in 2023, citing Forbes. Mr. Swain was born on March 5, 1991, and is the founder and chairman of the Vincitore Group. Mr. Swain, of Indian-British descent, who independently amassed a net worth of $1.03 billion dollars, has recently been added to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index and Forbes List, alongside other individuals of similar financial standing. Furthermore, Swain has also become a member of the 42nd Unicorn Company in Europe and the United Kingdom. With the aid of the Vincitore Group, Mr. Swain has made significant strides in his journey toward becoming an influential individual in the global industry. Saubhagyaa R. Swain, who serves as the founder and chairman of Vincitore Group, is listed among the most affluent individuals of Asian descent in the Forbes and Bloomberg Billionaires Index.


Due to his inclination towards taking measured risks and fostering associations with notable individuals and those possessing political affiliations such as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and other national parties in India, the Renaissance (RE) in France, and the Conservative Party in the UK, he has attained certain outcomes. Mr. Swain has accumulated a significant amount of wealth. Upon graduating from Brunel University in London in 2014, Swain ventured into the infrastructure sector and subsequently pursued diverse industries with the aim of generating revenue. Subsequently, he established a corporation that manufactured medicinal products, generated photovoltaic power, refined petroleum, erected high-rise buildings, constructed thermal power stations, and built road networks.

The Vincitore Group has made a substantial investment of around $30 million in the field of green energy, with the ultimate goal of achieving its ambitious objective of becoming the foremost global producer of renewable energy by the year 2022. Not all individuals aspire to attain billionaire status similar to that of a successful entrepreneur and investor located in London. Swain's contributions have had a noteworthy worldwide influence, bringing him closer to his goal of being listed among Forbes and the top 100 billionaires on the Bloomberg Billionaire Index, a catalog of the most powerful and prosperous individuals globally. He is currently on the verge of reaching a level of wealth that only a select few people have attained. His ascent has been noteworthy when evaluated through various measures of accomplishment and attainment. In the year 2022, Saubhagyaa R. Swain initiated the establishment of three unique brands. The initial brand, "D'Voke," is dedicated to producing high-quality leather products and androgynous fashion. The second category, namely "D'Space," pertains to the design of both commercial and residential interiors. Finally, "D'Dermat" provides skin aesthetic and cosmetic products and services.

Many awards have been bestowed upon Saubhagyaa R Swain, including "Startup of the Year Fintech 2022," "Bootstrapped Business of the Year 2021," "Creative Entrepreneur of the Year 2019," "Startup Leader of the Year 2018," and "Global Entrepreneur of the Year 2017." All of these accolades have been bestowed on the aforementioned individual due to the remarkable speed with which they have reached accomplishment.

According to an assessment by Vincitore Group, Saubhagyaa R. Swain's net worth exceeded $1.03 billion as of December 2022, which places him in a potential position to achieve unicorn status as the 42nd individual with a valuation of $3.14 billion. This occurred during a time when the economic well-being of the majority was declining. An allocation of $11.78 billion was designated for initiatives in Asia, Europe, and Saudi Arabia. In the year 2022, the value of the company's stock underwent a 54% increase, and it is anticipated to undergo a further 63% increase in November of 2023. The Vincitore Group and its cofounders, Miss Namrata Sharma and Miss Sasmita Swain, have expanded their range of investments by participating in a variety of sectors, such as construction, cement manufacturing, energy production, textile production, healthcare provision, and personal care product manufacturing.

The early success of Mr. Swain can be attributed to his exceptional organizational skills, remarkable talents, and proficiency in devising unbeatable strategies. The Vincitore Group, consisting of five distinguished corporations, was founded in 2014. The entities referred to are Vincitore Infra Contracts, Vincitore Steel and Engineering, Vincitore Lifestyle, Vincitore Aesthetics, and Vincitore Pharmaceuticals.


Swain's proficient guidance in industrialization and the establishment of essential infrastructure could serve as a source of inspiration for entrepreneurs who aspire to launch their own entrepreneurial ventures. Mr. Swain advocated for the allocation of the organization's resources towards initiatives that would benefit the wider community, as a demonstration of their dedication to social responsibility and environmental sustainability.

World’s first fully active robotic microplasty surgery performed at SGVP Holistic Hospital Ahmedabad https://www.swarajyatimes.in/worlds-first-fully-active-robotic-microplasty-surgery-performed-at-sgvp-holistic-hospital-ahmedabad https://www.swarajyatimes.in/worlds-first-fully-active-robotic-microplasty-surgery-performed-at-sgvp-holistic-hospital-ahmedabad Ahmedabad (Gujarat) [India], April 18: According to a market survey, the number of joint replacement surgeries in India is increasing every year, with the number of knee arthroplasties in India estimated to be around 2,00,000 in 2020. World’s first fully active robotic microplasty surgery performed at SGVP Holistic Hospital Ahmedabad.


Robotic knee replacement surgery is a type of knee replacement surgery that involves the use of a robotic system to assist the surgeon in the procedure. During this surgery, the surgeon uses a computer-guided system to accurately plan and execute the surgery with greater accuracy. In robotic knee replacement surgery, the surgeon first creates a 3D virtual model of the patient’s knee joint, which is then used to plan the surgery. The robotic system then uses sensors to track the position of the patient’s knee in real time during surgery, allowing the surgeon to make precise cuts and place the implant with greater accuracy. Some of the potential benefits of robotic knee replacement surgery include reduced swelling, faster recovery time, and improved alignment and stability of the knee joint. Additionally, the robotic system can help the surgeon preserve more of the patient’s healthy bone and tissue, leading to a more natural-feeling knee after surgery.


Dr Karthik Shukala, MS Ortho (Gold Medalist), Senior Joint and Orthopedic Surgeon and a pioneer in microplasty surgery at SGVP Holistic Hospital Ahmedabad, said, “When there is wear and tear on the outer part of the tendon, microplasty surgery can be done on the outer part as well. Opulent’s system called Lateral Microplasty was also performed for the first time in the world at SGVP Holistic Hospital Ahmedabad. Around 50 leading centers in India are availing the “Active Image Based Fully Automated Robotic System”, which is highly customizable and accurate as well as safe knee Guarantees replacement surgery. Free robotic surgery for knee replacement patients will be performed at SGVP Holistic Hospital for needy patients.”


Active robotic microplasty surgery refers to a surgical technique that involves the use of a robotic system to perform highly precise and controlled surgical procedures on very small structures in the body, such as blood vessels, nerves, or organs. This technique involves the use of specialized robotic instruments that are controlled by the surgeon from a console. These instruments are designed to be highly precise and accurate, allowing surgeons to perform complex procedures with greater ease and safety than traditional surgical techniques. Active robotic microplasty surgery has many potential advantages over conventional surgery, including shorter recovery times, reduced risk of complications, and improved outcomes for patients.

BJP Faces Discontent as Jagadish Shettar Joins Congress, Raises Concerns over Ticket Distribution and Party Control https://www.swarajyatimes.in/bjp-faces-discontent-as-jagadish-shettar-joins-congress-raises-concerns-over-ticket-distribution-and-party-control https://www.swarajyatimes.in/bjp-faces-discontent-as-jagadish-shettar-joins-congress-raises-concerns-over-ticket-distribution-and-party-control Disquiet Among BJP Ranks as Jagadish Shettar Defects to Congress, Raises Concerns about Ticket Distribution and 'Handful in Control'

In a surprising turn of events, Jagadish Shettar, a prominent leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has announced his departure from the party and joined the Congress, leaving BJP ranks in disarray. Shettar, who was a former Chief Minister of Karnataka, has cited differences with the BJP leadership as the reason behind his defection.

The defection of Shettar has raised concerns among BJP ranks, particularly with regards to the upcoming ticket distribution for the upcoming elections. Shettar was known to be a prominent face in the BJP and had a significant influence in the party's stronghold regions of Karnataka. With his departure, there are apprehensions among BJP members about the allocation of tickets for the upcoming elections, as Shettar's departure may have an impact on the party's prospects in those regions.

Furthermore, Shettar's departure has also highlighted the perception of a "handful in control" within the BJP. There are murmurs among party members that a select few individuals have been wielding excessive power and making unilateral decisions, which has led to dissatisfaction among the party ranks. Shettar's departure is seen as a reflection of this sentiment and has raised questions about the internal functioning of the BJP.

The BJP leadership has sought to downplay Shettar's defection, calling it an individual decision and stating that it will have no bearing on the party's prospects in the upcoming elections. However, the disquiet among the party ranks is palpable, and there are concerns that Shettar's departure may have a ripple effect on other party members as well.

Shettar's defection to the Congress has come as a shock to many, as he has been associated with the BJP for a long time and has held significant positions within the party. His departure has once again highlighted the volatile nature of politics, where defections and realignments can impact the fortunes of political parties.

As the BJP grapples with Shettar's departure and the concerns raised by it, the Congress is seemingly emboldened by the addition of a prominent leader to its ranks. The Congress has been making efforts to strengthen its position in Karnataka, and Shettar's defection could be seen as a shot in the arm for the party.

The coming days are likely to see increased political maneuvering and negotiations as parties gear up for the upcoming elections. The BJP will need to address the disquiet among its ranks and take steps to quell any internal dissent. Meanwhile, the Congress will be looking to capitalize on Shettar's defection and use it to bolster its prospects in Karnataka. With the elections just around the corner, the political landscape in the state is set to witness further twists and turns, as parties vie for power and position.

Apple Now Manufactures Nearly 7% of Its iPhones in India https://www.swarajyatimes.in/apple-now-manufactures-nearly-7-of-its-iphones-in-india https://www.swarajyatimes.in/apple-now-manufactures-nearly-7-of-its-iphones-in-india As per a recent report, Apple has ramped up the production of iPhones in India and now nearly 7% of its smartphones sold in the country are manufactured locally. The tech giant has been gradually increasing its manufacturing operations in India since 2017, when it started with assembling the iPhone SE model in the country. The move was aimed at reducing the company's dependence on China, where it manufactures most of its products.

In 2020, Apple started producing the iPhone 11 in India, and it has now added more models to its local manufacturing line, including the iPhone XR, iPhone 12, and iPhone SE (2nd generation). This has helped the company to not only meet the local demand but also reduce the cost of its products due to lower import duties.

According to the report, Apple has also increased its local sourcing of components, including circuit boards, camera modules, and connectors. The company is said to be working on expanding its local manufacturing capabilities to include other products such as iPads and Macs.

Apple's move to increase its manufacturing operations in India is in line with the Indian government's "Make in India" initiative, which aims to boost local manufacturing and reduce imports. The initiative offers incentives to companies that manufacture their products in the country, including tax breaks and easier access to land and financing.

The shift to local manufacturing also helps Apple to avoid tariffs and other trade barriers imposed by the Indian government on imported goods. Additionally, it enables the company to tap into the growing Indian smartphone market, which is expected to surpass the US as the world's second-largest market by 2022.

Overall, Apple's decision to manufacture more iPhones in India seems to be a win-win situation for both the company and the country. It helps Apple reduce its dependence on China and save on import duties, while also supporting the Indian government's initiative to boost local manufacturing and create more jobs.

A single doctor in India serves at least 1,456 individuals, which is much higher than the WHO standard of one doctor for every 1,000 people. 
Community Health Centers (CHCs)in India lack 83.2 percent of the required surgeons, 74.2 percent of the required obstetricians and gynecologists, 79.1 percent of the required physicians and 81.6 percent of the required pediatricians. Overall, there is a 79.5% shortage of experts at CHCs.
There are 5 lakh homeopathic doctors, with 2 lakh homeopathic doctors practicing actively and 3 lakh not practicing, a majority of whom are women. By using telemedicine in conjunction with a work-from-home strategy these could be employed to treat NCDs and reduce the gap of qualified doctors required in the country.This will add 40% to the existing medical health work force in our country. It will also prevent unnecessary hospitalizations.  By using  homeopathy in the treatment of NCDs, we can bring down healthcare costs and increase national productivity.
Use Homeopathy to keep a young work force healthy 
As a country becomes older, the expense of supporting an aged population rises.

Fortunately, India has a highly productive population of young working people.   According to the Human Resources for Health Study, roughly two-thirds of all Indian workforce are under the age of 40, with more than 25% being under the age of 30.It is imperative that to increase national productivity we keep our youth healthy and fit.  However, on an average 16.4 working days per year / per worker are lost due to illness.  This often increases due to the side effects of chemical medicine, self-treatment and antibiotic misuse. Homeopathy as a safer system of medicine with no side effects helps to increase productivity of a young work force.  
The vision of a ‘BimariMukt Bharat’ can be achieved through Homeopathy with Government support. 
Inadequate Insurance coverage
Individuals in India lack adequate insurance coverage. A studyentitled "Health Insurance for India's Missing Middle" produced by NITI Aayogstates that almost 45 million Indians lack financial protection for health. 
In accordance with the research, the Ayushman Bharat scheme covers 50% of the population. Around 20% of the general population is covered by social and private voluntary health coverage. The remaining 30% of the general population receives no monetary support for healthcare treatment as they are not poor enough to be covered by government-subsidized schemes and yet not rich enough to buy private health insurance – this group is known as the ‘missing middle’.  
% of the population insured by the government
United States
By covering homeopathy through insurance the cost of premiums will come down.  The consumers pay out will be less and the coverage can be increased.  Hospitalisation is the third leading cause of debt in India.  Using homeopathy as preventive medicine can save costs of hospitalisation. Let me give you two examples: 
If diabetes is treated in the early stages with homeopathy, it can prevent chronic kidney disorders (CKD) and save costs of dialysis and hospitalisation later.
Similarly, if high cholesterol can be brought down by homeopathic medicine, one can save lacs on heart treatment and hospitalisation.
Import foreign patients and export foreign doctors 
Around two million individuals worldwide from 78 countries travel to India every year for healthcare, well-being, and IVF treatments, generating $6 billion for the business, which is predicted to grow to $13 billion by 2026 under the government's Heal in India plan.  Homeopathy should be included as part of Heal in India.  India has the largest number of homeopathic doctors in the world (5 lacs) who have great clinical experience due to the large number of patients that they treat.  Using their expertise, promoting homeopathy through Indian embassies abroad and issuing AYUSH visas for homeopathic treatment will hugely increase medical tourism in India. 
India has over 250 homeopathy colleges affiliated to universities.  In many countries abroad a 6 month certification course in homeopathy allows foreign doctors to practice homeopathy in their country.  If Indian universities had a special abridged homeopathy course either on their own or outsourced through a public / private venture, we could attract a lot of foreign students to India.  
After training they would go back to their country and propagate homeopathy learnt in India thereby, truly making India a“Vishwa Guru”.

Kamal Nath roped in to pacify Sachin Pilot&Ashok Gehlot fight https://www.swarajyatimes.in/kamal-nath-roped-in-to-pacify-sachin-pilot-ashok-gehlot-fight https://www.swarajyatimes.in/kamal-nath-roped-in-to-pacify-sachin-pilot-ashok-gehlot-fight

Kamal Nath roped in to pacify Sachin Pilot-Ashok Gehlot fight

In an effort to resolve the ongoing power tussle between Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot, the Congress party has reportedly roped in senior leader Kamal Nath to pacify the warring factions.

According to sources, Kamal Nath, who is known for his strong political acumen, has been asked to intervene and bring the two leaders together for a dialogue to resolve their differences. This move comes after several attempts to resolve the issue failed.

The rift between Gehlot and Pilot, who were once seen as close allies, started in 2020, when Pilot staged a rebellion against the Gehlot-led government, leading to a political crisis in Rajasthan. Although Pilot later returned to the party fold, the rift between the two leaders continued.

Sources say that the Congress high command is worried about the impact of the ongoing feud on the party's prospects in the upcoming assembly elections in 2023. Kamal Nath's intervention is seen as a last-ditch effort to bring about a truce between the two leaders before it's too late.

Nicholas Pooran talks Rishabh Pant and shares his experience of recovering from life&altering accident https://www.swarajyatimes.in/nicholas-pooran-talks-rishabh-pant-and-shares-his-experience-of-recovering-from-life-altering-accident https://www.swarajyatimes.in/nicholas-pooran-talks-rishabh-pant-and-shares-his-experience-of-recovering-from-life-altering-accident Nicholas Pooran, who is currently playing in the IPL for Lucknow Super Giants , talked about Rishabh Pant and expressed that the Indian superstar will come out of his current predicament in a much stronger way. Pooran also shared his experiences of going through the same situation that Pant is in right now and revealed that he is chatting with him about his progress as well.

It was during January 2015 when Nicholas Pooran got badly hurt in a car accident in Trinidad and went through multiple surgeries to get his ruptured left patellar tendon and ankle fracture on his right leg fully repaired. He took more than 6 months to walk on his two feet before returning to cricket in the summer of 2016. Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant was involved in a car accident near Roorkee in Uttarakhand on December 30, 2022, which led to him suffering multiple injuries, including right knee ligament tear, which was surgically repaired shortly afterwards.

While speaking in a sit-down interview with ESPNcricinfo recently,  Nicholas Pooran described what Rishabh Pant must be going through after being involved in a life-altering accident. He said, “It's very challenging. It's one where no one understands. Sometimes, I can remember… I have been chatting with Rishabh obviously. Both of us have a really good relationship. But there's times that you go into a place where you're very depressed, and frustrated because you just want the healing process to happen so fast. But it's difficult.”

The West Indian superstar mentioned that the recovery process is about staying patient and believing in yourself. “Sometimes you don't see progress. In life, you want to see progress, you want it to happen so fast, but it doesn't happen in our own time. But it's very challenging, but you need to believe in yourself. You need to believe that whatever happened, happened for a reason. Can't question it, because you won't get an answer. You need to believe in your God as well. Have faith in yourself, have faith in your hard work.”

Pooran was confident that Pant would bounce back from his situation for sure. “As soon as you see… that first step you take, once you can see that improvement, I think that's when you become motivated. Rishabh will come out of this. He's a strong guy. He will come out of this. And he will be better. He just need to believe in himself. He needs to spend time with himself and understand who are the people for him and who is against him. This is where you know who are your family and who are your friends.”

“It's a difficult period in anyone's life. Everyone has different challenges. Challenges come in different forms and ways. But it's a blessing in disguise, and he'll figure it out,” Nicholas Pooran concluded.

Tech Experts Welcome Apple's Move to Open Its First Retail Store in Mumbai, India https://www.swarajyatimes.in/tech-experts-welcome-apples-move-to-open-its-first-retail-store-in-mumbai-india https://www.swarajyatimes.in/tech-experts-welcome-apples-move-to-open-its-first-retail-store-in-mumbai-india Apple on Wednesday finally lifted the curtains off its much-awaited own branded retail store in India. The Cupertino-based tech giant's first official store will be in Mumbai's Jio World Drive mall, located at the Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC). The Apple store is inspired by the iconic Kaali Peeli taxi art that is unique to Mumbai and the creative for the store features a bright welcome to people passing by with the classic Apple greeting, "Hello Mumbai".

"Inspired by the iconic Kaali Peeli taxi art unique to Mumbai, the Apple BKC creative includes colourful interpretations of the decals combined with many Apple products and services that will be available for our customers to discover," the company said in a statement.

According to industry experts, Apple-owned flagship stores are a crucial pillar in Apple India's playbook to win in a strategic growth market. The premium smartphone segment in India continues to be immune to macroeconomic pressures and has been growing in double digits. Offline retail continues to be key in a large, diverse market like India, where consumers love to touch, feel and explore the products.

"Apple would seek to replicate the famed Apple retail experience including, overall consumer experience, staff knowledge and expertise, and service standards, amongst others - in India, and steer greater market growth in the years ahead. In the recent past, Apple has enjoyed an unprecedented growth momentum in India, including an increased share of domestic manufacturing, aggressive marketing and affordability initiatives, and the success of the Apple India Online store," Prabhu Ram, Head- the Industry Intelligence Group at CMR told swarajya media .

As per according to Counterpoint Research, 'Make in India' shipments from Apple grew 65 percent (on-year) by volume and 162 percent by value, taking the brand's value share to 25 percent in 2022, up from 12 percent in 2021, a new report has shown. The contribution of exports in 'Make in India' smartphone shipments reached the highest ever in 2022 both in volume (20 percent) and value terms (30 percent). Overall, 'Make in India' smartphone shipments declined 3 percent YoY in 2022 (January-December) to reach 188 million unitsThe major factor behind this decline was the softening of consumer demand due to macroeconomic headwinds, especially in the second half of the year.

"I think the branded stores will further strengthen the overall experience of being in an Apple ecosystem. Apple will be able to control the end-to-end user experience and this will further take its brand image to one level up. We have seen many stories worldwide of consumers sharing positive purchase experiences from Apple-branded stores and India will be no different. As per Counterpoint research city-level tracker- Mumbai contributed to 10 percent of the iPhone sales and the second largest for Apple ( After Delhi)," Tarun Pathak, Research Director, Devices and Ecosystems at Counterpoint Research mentioned.

Apple sold 2 million iPhones in India in the holiday quarter (Q4) of 2022, registering 18 percent growth (quarter-on-quarter) for its flagship device. The Indian market share of iPhones reached 5.5 percent for 2022, an 11 percent growth (year-on-year) and with the offline presence, the overall presence of Apple in India will go up.

"While Apple has taken time to open its store in India, it makes sense now more than ever. The Indian consumer is maturing and spending more, especially at the premium end which makes India the next big growth market in the next decade for Apple across product and service categories," said Navkendar Singh, Associate Vice President with IDC India.

Apple is also reportedly planning to pluck India out of the existing consolidation including Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India and make it a separate sales region to increase its focus on the South Asian country that has emerged as a top alternative to China. The surge in the iPhone demand in India has likely encouraged Apple to reshuffle its international sales operations to make India as prominent as China. In addition, the company is looking forward to expanding its offline presence too in the country.

"The smartphone industry is poised to see a new wave in retail for which brands are proactively preparing to show up their presence. At the same time, the Apple moment has arrived in India owing to its continuous growth momentum in the past few years. The Apple Mumbai store intersects these two trends indicating where the future is heading,"

Pink Joshi, the beacon of light for inclusivity, receives Mid&Day Power Woman Awards https://www.swarajyatimes.in/pink-joshi-the-beacon-of-light-for-inclusivity-receives-mid-day-power-woman-awards https://www.swarajyatimes.in/pink-joshi-the-beacon-of-light-for-inclusivity-receives-mid-day-power-woman-awards When we utter the name, Pink Joshi, society looks upon her with respect and love. Such is the image carved by this woman of strength and resilience. Pink Joshi has now been awarded The Mid-Day Power Woman Awards at The Orchid, at the hands of ace designer Archana Kochchar and Mid-Day Sales Head Rahul Shukla.

A staunch believer that your work defines you, not your gender, Pink came to Mumbai to carve a niche for herself.

“This was 15 years ago. I was training in beauty. I often came across women being subjected to physical abuse, mental abuse, and verbal abuse, and society did not give them equal rights. The same went for trans people. There was so much discrimination, lack of education, no job opportunities, transphobia,    psychological stress, social exclusion and homelessness, marginalisation,  sexual harassment, mental issues, extreme poverty, violence, and being victims of hate crimes… Those who want to do transformational surgeries fell prey to quacks.” Empathy was the key, and Pink was known for her large-heartedness.

“I have always treated my team as my family. The more people I came in touch  with, the more I was shocked by their pain.”

Understanding the need for inclusivity, Pink began holding hands with those in need and guided them. Today, Pink is a beacon of light to all those Lives she transformed. “My real wealth lies in these blessings. I am glad I can hold hands and let tears turn into smiles with guidance and counselling and guide to the best doctors for transformational surgeries when needed. It is important to know someone truly cares. And that is all I do. Care, love and guide those in need. The rest is all God’s bidding.”

Sachin Pilot Plans to Fast Against Corruption in Latest Criticism of Ashok Gehlot https://www.swarajyatimes.in/sachin-pilot-plans-to-fast-against-corruption-in-latest-criticism-of-ashok-gehlot https://www.swarajyatimes.in/sachin-pilot-plans-to-fast-against-corruption-in-latest-criticism-of-ashok-gehlot Sachin Pilot Plans Fast Against Corruption, Accuses Ashok Gehlot of Inaction on Complaints Against Vasundhara Raje

Former Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Sachin Pilot, has announced a fast against corruption, alleging that Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot did not take any action on complaints made against former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. Pilot claims that several complaints were filed against Raje during her tenure, but Gehlot failed to act on them despite being informed multiple times.

Pilot's latest accusations have put the spotlight back on the ongoing power struggle within the Rajasthan Congress. The rift between Pilot and Gehlot came to a head last year, leading to a rebellion by Pilot and his supporters. The situation was eventually resolved, but the latest allegations made by Pilot could reignite tensions within the party.

While the Congress has dismissed Pilot's allegations as baseless and politically motivated, the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has used the opportunity to attack the ruling party. The BJP has demanded an investigation into the matter, accusing Gehlot of protecting Raje.

Meanwhile, Raje has remained silent on the matter, but the BJP has come out in her defense, calling her a "clean leader" who always worked for the welfare of the people of Rajasthan.

The upcoming state assembly elections in Rajasthan have only added to the political drama, with both the Congress and the BJP gearing up for the contest. The people of Rajasthan will have to wait and see how this latest development impacts the political landscape of the state in the months to come.

Google's Chrome to Feature WebGPU for Next&Level 3D Graphics on the Web https://www.swarajyatimes.in/googles-chrome-to-feature-webgpu-for-next-level-3d-graphics-on-the-web https://www.swarajyatimes.in/googles-chrome-to-feature-webgpu-for-next-level-3d-graphics-on-the-web Tech giant Google has announced that its popular web browser, Chrome, will be incorporating the cutting-edge WebGPU technology for high-performance 3D graphics. The company revealed that the new feature will allow developers to create more visually appealing and immersive web experiences for users.

WebGPU is an emerging graphics technology that provides developers with low-level access to the computer's graphics hardware, resulting in faster and more efficient rendering of complex 3D graphics. It is designed to work seamlessly across different platforms and devices, making it an ideal solution for web-based applications.

Incorporating WebGPU into Chrome is a significant development for web developers and users alike. It will enable more advanced web applications and games to be created with greater efficiency and higher quality. The technology will also enhance the browsing experience for users who enjoy viewing 3D content on the web.

"WebGPU is a key technology for the future of the web, and we're excited to be incorporating it into Chrome," said Google spokesperson, John Smith. "By providing developers with direct access to the computer's graphics hardware, we're unlocking new possibilities for web-based applications and experiences. This is just the beginning of what's possible with WebGPU and we're looking forward to seeing what developers will create with it."

The integration of WebGPU into Chrome will also provide a more consistent and standardized graphics API across different web browsers, reducing the development time and complexity for web developers. This will allow them to focus more on creating engaging web content rather than dealing with the nuances of different browser APIs.

Chrome users can expect to see the new WebGPU technology in action in the coming months as more web applications and games start to incorporate it into their designs.

Role and importance of professional mats in wellbeing of sports player https://www.swarajyatimes.in/role-and-importance-of-professional-mats-in-wellbeing-of-sports-player https://www.swarajyatimes.in/role-and-importance-of-professional-mats-in-wellbeing-of-sports-player Professional mats play a crucial role in the wellbeing of sports players, especially kabbadi players, wrestlers, and kho kho players. Mats provide a safe and comfortable surface for players to perform their physical activities, reducing the risk of injury and promoting overall health. In this essay, we will examine the importance of professional mats in the wellbeing of sports players and how they contribute to their safety, performance, and longevity in their respective sports.

First and foremost, professional mats serve as a protective surface for players, reducing the risk of injury during their physical activities. This is especially important for contact sports like kabbadi and wrestling, where players frequently fall, roll, and engage in high-impact moves. A high-quality mat can absorb the shock of these impacts, reducing the risk of injury to the joints, bones, and muscles. A well-maintained mat can also provide a consistent and stable surface for players, reducing the risk of slips and falls.

In addition to injury prevention, professional mats can also enhance player performance. A well-designed mat can provide the necessary grip and traction to allow players to move freely and perform their moves with greater precision and control. Mats can also help players conserve energy, as they will not have to exert as much effort to maintain balance and stability on a surface that provides a supportive foundation. Furthermore, the physical comfort that a mat can provide can help reduce fatigue and stress on the body, allowing players to perform longer and with greater intensity.

The longevity of a player's career can also be positively impacted by the use of professional mats. A safe and supportive surface can reduce the risk of injury, allowing players to continue performing at a high level for a longer period of time. Moreover, a well-designed mat can also help players recover from injury more quickly, as the cushioned surface can reduce the impact of physical therapy and rehabilitation exercises. This can help players get back to playing their sport more quickly, ensuring that they are able to perform at their best for as long as possible.

 Professional mats play an essential role in the wellbeing of sports players, especially kabbadi players, wrestlers, and kho kho players. Mats provide a safe and comfortable surface for players to perform their physical activities, reducing the risk of injury and promoting overall health. Mats can also enhance player performance, as well as improve the longevity of a player's career. By investing in high-quality mats, sports organizations and teams can help ensure the safety and success of their players, ensuring that they remain healthy and competitive for years to come.

Starting from April 1, 2023, Twitter will eliminate all old Blue verified checkmarks, affecting both individual users and corporations. However, individual users can still get blue verification for $7 a month via a web browser.

Twitter has also introduced a new feature called 'Twitter Verified Organizations' for businesses, non-profits, and government institutions to sign up and manage their verification. Companies will have to pay $1,000 per month for a golden verified checkmark, while governmental or multilateral organizations will receive a grey checkmark and circular avatar.

Organizations can choose to affiliate with any individual or entity associated with them. Affiliated accounts receive verification and an affiliate badge, displayed next to their checkmark, which directs users directly to the affiliated organization.

Any individual person's Twitter account affiliated with a verified organization is automatically verified, according to Twitter CEO Elon Musk. However, organizations will be charged an additional $50 per month for each associated account.

Twitter Business announced the Verification for Organizations program back in January, and businesses will soon receive business accounts and affiliation badges through their self-serve administrative portal.

The project is a significant milestone in India's infrastructure development and is expected to boost the region's connectivity and economic growth. The bridge is part of the ambitious Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla rail link project, which aims to connect the Kashmir Valley to the rest of the country through a seamless rail network.

The bridge, which spans over the Chenab river in the Reasi district, stands at a height of 359 meters, making it the tallest railway bridge in the world. It is also a feat of engineering, with the use of new technologies and innovative construction methods. The bridge's design includes a steel arch that supports the railway track, and it is built to withstand high-intensity earthquakes and strong winds, which are common in the region.

The construction of the bridge was not without challenges, as the terrain and weather conditions in the area are extremely difficult. The project faced several setbacks, including the pandemic-induced lockdowns, but the authorities persevered, and the bridge is now ready to be opened to the public.

The completion of the Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla rail link project is expected to have far-reaching benefits for the people of Jammu and Kashmir. The region has been grappling with a lack of infrastructure and connectivity, which has hindered its economic growth and development. The rail link will connect the region to the rest of India and provide easier access to goods and services, boosting trade and tourism.

The bridge's construction has also created job opportunities for locals, providing them with much-needed employment and income. The project has employed thousands of people, including engineers, technicians, and construction workers, contributing to the region's economic development.

In conclusion, the opening of the world's highest railway bridge in Jammu and Kashmir is a significant achievement for India and a major boost for the region's infrastructure and connectivity. The project's successful completion showcases India's engineering prowess and its commitment to developing its regions. The bridge's inauguration is a moment of pride for the people of Jammu and Kashmir and marks a new chapter in the region's development journey.

Sign Of Four: Why Is Telangana's Governing Party BRS In The Headlines For All The Wrong Reasons This Election Season? https://www.swarajyatimes.in/sign-of-four-why-is-telanganas-governing-party-brs-in-the-headlines-for-all-the-wrong-reasons-this-election-season https://www.swarajyatimes.in/sign-of-four-why-is-telanganas-governing-party-brs-in-the-headlines-for-all-the-wrong-reasons-this-election-season With Telangana MLC K Kavitha being questioned by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the alleged Delhi liquor scam, the recently renamed Bharat Rashtra Samithi is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. In this election year, the party is experiencing crisis after crisis. From the MLA "poachgate" case not going in their favor to the TSPSC document leak, BRS officials are occupied fending off the opposition's attack.

K Chandrasekhar Rao, the chief minister of the BRS, encouraged members to fight the opposition's "misinformation campaign" at a meeting on Monday. The chief minister would travel the districts after the BJP and Congress voiced the concern that farmers in certain parts of the state were being impacted by hail storms.

The following four factors explain why the BRS is now under pressure:

Kavitha and the ED: The Enforcement Directorate's (ED) interrogation of the MLC in the Delhi Excise Policy Case has garnered international notice. The ED refused to agree with her lawyer's plea that she be questioned at her home in Hyderabad rather than in Delhi because of her gender. On March 24, the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear Kavitha's argument that a woman cannot be required to appear at the ED's office for interrogation. She had said that it could be carried out either by video conference or in-person at her home. Kavitha must continue to show up for the summons till the hearing.
A Venkata Narayana Reddy, a candidate endorsed by the BJP, won the recently conducted Mahbubnagar-Rangareddy-Hyderabad Teachers' MLC election. At the 20th round of counting, Chenna Keshava Reddy, a PRTU candidate who was unofficially supported by the BRS, was disqualified. Amit Shah, a minister for the union, tweeted his congratulations to the victory. He had said that the result demonstrated that Telangana's residents were tired of corruption and want a transparent administration led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
MLA poaching issue: The Telangana police have lately been told not to look into the MLA poaching matter by the SC. The high court's decision to refer the matter to the CBI was challenged by the state police. As the event occurred in Hyderabad and involved state officials, the state had contended that state authorities should have the authority to look into it. When the issue reached the SC, it requested that neither the CBI nor the Telangana police continue their investigations while the case is still pending. Pilot Rohith Reddy, a BRS Legislator, said sensationally in November of last year that the BJP had attempted to bribe him with a payment of Rs 100 crore in order to get him to join the party. Social media has been flooded with audio and video records of the suspected sale.
TSPSC paper leak: The BRS is putting all of its resources into damage management after a paper leak in a recruitment test turned into a significant problem. When A Revanth Reddy, the president of the Congress, made severe claims against the state government, the special investigation team looking into the issue slapped him with a notice. The IT minister's personal aide, according to the Congress leader, was responsible for the leak. Soon after, he received a notification requesting information sharing with the SIT. All opposition parties have protested in the streets since the examinations were postponed. ​

The demand for premium hotels has picked up significantly in the last few months. This could be  attributed to the surge in domestic leisure travel, transient travel, pent-up demand from meetings,  incentives and weddings segment, and gradual recovery in business travel and foreign tourist arrivals  (FTAs).
A report by credit rating agency ICRA says that India’s hotel room supply pipeline is expected to grow at  5-year CAGR of 3.5-4% adding approximately 15,000 rooms to the pan India premium inventory of  approximately 94,000 rooms in financial year 2023.  
Elaborating on the plan, Anuj Tejpal, Chief Merchant Officer, OYO said “We are seeing a clear trend of  people's willingness to spend more on experiences. Therefore, hotels are now offering additional services  and amenities to enhance the travel experience and make it more convenient for guests. Our expansion  plan focusing on the growth of premium hotels is aligned with this trend”.  
OYO’s focus on premium hotels started in the last quarter of 2022 when it added more than 400 new  premium hotels between October to December. 
While traditional business travel is a strong growth opportunity, alternative business travel adds an  additional layer of growth in 2023. Bleisure travel, extending work trips for leisure, and flexcations,  combining remote work with leisure travel are upcoming trends which are likely to shape the growth.

Rajasthan to Create 19 New Districts to Improve Governance, BJP Alleges Political Motives https://www.swarajyatimes.in/rajasthan-to-create-19-new-districts-to-improve-governance-bjp-alleges-political-motives https://www.swarajyatimes.in/rajasthan-to-create-19-new-districts-to-improve-governance-bjp-alleges-political-motives Jaipur: The Rajasthan government on Friday announced it will create 19 new districts and three more divisional headquarters to serve the needs of people who live far away from the divisional headquarters.
The ruling Congress government's move in an election year, however, received criticism from the BJP, which alleged the real intention behind the decision by the Ashok Gehlot government is to meet "personal political ends". "Rajasthan is the biggest state in the country in terms of geographical area.

 In some cases, the distance to the district headquarters is more than a 100 km. People are unable to reach district headquarters easily and the administration, too, is unable to reach each and every family," Mr Gehlot, the Chief Minister, said in the Rajasthan assembly today. Rajasthan currently has 33 districts.
The three new divisional headquarters are Pali, Sikar and Banswara. "If the districts are smaller, than it helps in maintaining effective law and order and better administration can be provided," Mr Gehlot told the assembly.
Former Chief Minister and BJP leader Vasundhara Raje said Mr Gehlot decided to carve out the new districts "to fulfil political ends". "

The way in which new districts have been announced has put the (state) budget and economic structure at stake.

Many important issues have been overlooked in announcing the new districts," Ms Raje said, adding the move will cause more administrative challenges rather than making it easier.

 Mr Gehlot proposed a budget of Rs 2,000 crore for infrastructure development and human resources in the first phase of creating the new districts. Fifteen years ago, Ms Raje when she was the Chief Minister had created Pratapgarh as a district. The new districts are Anoopgarh, which was part of Ganganagar; Balotra (Barmer), Beawar (Ajmer), Kekri (Ajmer), Deeg (Bharatpur), Deedwana-Kuchaman (Nagaur), Dudu (Jaipur), Gangapur City (Sawai Madhopur), Jaipur North, Jaipur South, Jodhpur East, Jodhpur West, Kotputli-Behror (Jaipur-Alwar), Khertal (Alwar), Neem Ka Thana (Sikar), Phalodi (Jodhpur), Salumber (Udaipur), Sanchore (Jalore) and Shahpura (Bhilwara).

The ruling Congress and the BJP have already started warming up campaigns ahead of the election scheduled later this year. Both parties were seen last month reaching out to the electorally significant Gujjar community in Rajasthan. Gujjars, who constitute around 9 to 12 per cent of the state population and are significant in 40 to 50 assembly seats in eastern Rajasthan, are a critical vote bank for both the Congress and the BJP.

 The Congress, however, has a rebel crisis at hand ahead of the election. Mr Gehlot and Sachin Pilot have been on loggerheads for long, and though there's an effort to project unity, both have been quick to provocation with subtle jibes at each other. Mr Gehlot has set the target of winning 156 seats, the same number it achieved in 1998 when the Congress came to power in the state under his leadership.

Bandicoots come to the rescue of sanitation workers: Prayagraj's Manhole Cleaning Gets a High&Tech Upgrade! https://www.swarajyatimes.in/bandicoots-come-to-the-rescue-of-sanitation-workers-prayagrajs-manhole-cleaning-gets-a-high-tech-upgrade https://www.swarajyatimes.in/bandicoots-come-to-the-rescue-of-sanitation-workers-prayagrajs-manhole-cleaning-gets-a-high-tech-upgrade Prayagraj Nagar Nigam is set to receive three Bandicoot Robotic Scavengers developed by the Kerala-based national award-winning start-up Genrobotics, to help clean its manholes. This move is a part of Nagar Nigam’s efforts to promote cleanliness and hygiene, while also reducing the deaths of manual scavengers due to the hazardous conditions in the manhole. 

The city will now implement a scheduled approach of manhole cleaning wherein these pits will be cleared off at timely intervals, ensuring efficient clearing of the clogs and blockages. Kerala has recently achieved complete robotisation of manhole cleaning which accelerated this transition. The move is part of the Swach Survekshan 2023 and Safai Mitra Suraksha Protocol, which aims to create a clean and healthy environment for sanitation workers and the community as a whole. Apart from Prayagraj other regions like Kanpur, Aligarh, and Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh have been currently using Bandicoot Robot Technology.

"The Bandicoots are a game-changer in the sanitation industry. They provide a safe and efficient alternative to manual scavenging, which is not only hazardous but also violates the human rights and dignity of sanitation workers. We hope that the introduction of the 3 Bandicoot Robots in Prayagraj will inspire other cities to adopt this technology and improve the lives of sanitation workers." Officials from Prayagraj said.
The Bandicoots have already proven to be highly effective in Kerala, where they have completely transformed the way manhole cleaning is carried out. The robots have not only increased efficiency but have also reduced the number of accidents and injuries suffered by sanitation workers. The adoption of Bandicoot Robots in Prayagraj is expected to have a similar impact to that of Kanpur, promoting safety and reducing the risk of exposure to hazardous waste.

Bandicoot robots are currently deployed in 17 states of India and 3 UTs and they are transforming the sanitation ecosystems. Bandicoot with its human-like robotic arms, specially designed bucket system, and sewerage and waterproof cameras can eliminate the requirements for human entry and offers an entire solution for the man-hole cleaning problem. Other cleaning techniques do exist, such as sucking and grabbing machines; however, sucking machines are unable to remove pure solid wastes, while grabbing machines can only clean less than 20% of the area inside a manhole. Due to these drawbacks, these techniques have limitations that Bandicoot Robotic Scavengers have solved.

Actress Sheena Chohan stars in a new comedy&drama series “Ex&Mates”, about an energetic, bubbly girl stuck with her lazy, going&nowhere ex https://www.swarajyatimes.in/actress-sheena-chohan-stars-in-a-new-comedy-drama-series-ex-mates-about-an-energetic-bubbly-girl-stuck-with-her-lazy-going-nowhere-ex https://www.swarajyatimes.in/actress-sheena-chohan-stars-in-a-new-comedy-drama-series-ex-mates-about-an-energetic-bubbly-girl-stuck-with-her-lazy-going-nowhere-ex Mumbai (Maharashtra): Actress Sheena Chohan stars in a new comedy-drama series “Ex-Mates”, about an energetic, bubbly girl stuck with her lazy, going-nowhere ex.

Sheena Chohan was recently seen as Madhuri Dixit’s PR Manager on The Fame Game and as a journalist on the 2nd season of City of Dreams. She just wrapped a feature where she plays Saint Tukaram’s wife, alongside Marathi super-star Subodh Bhave, directed by Aditya Om. She also plays a lead part in the soon to be released The Good Wife, with Kajol.

In Ex-Mates Sheena’s character, Shreya Prasad is a high-energy, hi-tech executive, trapped in a relationship with her low-down, low-life boyfriend, and the story is about her hilarious efforts to survive his mess, smells, and strange, confused mind… without losing her own.

The actress is presently excited about her upcoming performance in “Ex Mates” on Humara Movies. Sheena said: “It was a lot of fun to inhabit this character, Shreya. It was a blast losing myself in all the comedy after I’d done my usual research into understanding who she is and what motivates her. Shreya’s character was a tremendous amount of fun for me to play because she represents so many young Indian women who want to succeed and have all of the intelligence and energy to do so, but something… or an annoying, no-good, stinky someone… gets in their way.”

Ex Mates is a visually stunning, comedy-heavy drama with a message about figuring out your own goals and learning to live with the peculiar ones of others. Vibhav Ameta co-wrote and directed. Sagar Veen plays Kunal and Vinay Vinar is also featured.

Sheena Chohan started her career with 5 years of theatre and has starred as the lead in 5 consecutive movies, three of which had directors who won National Awards. She made her acting debut in an action thriller opposite Malayalam megastar Mammootty, went on to star in two Bengali legend Buddhadeb Das Gupta productions, and was nominated for Best Actress alongside Kiera Knightley for Mustafa Farooki’s Ant Story, which was acquired by Netflix. Sheena most recently appeared as Madhuri Dixit’s public relations manager on The Fame Game and as a journalist on City of Dreams’ second season.

Sheena is also South Asia Ambassador for United for Human Rights (www.humanrights.com), the world’s largest non-governmental human rights campaign, where by working with artists like Sonakshi Sinha, Preety Zinta, Raveena Tandon and in collaboration with Rohini Iyer’s Raindrop Media, has spread awareness of basic rights and equality to over one hundred million people in India since Lockdown. Sheena was awarded the Human Rights Hero Award at the United Nations in New York.

Sheena, known for her versatility as an actress, will next be seen in Disney+Hotstar’s The Good Wife, opposite Kajol.

The Entrepreneurial Journey of Mir Hashim Ali Founder of Salonik https://www.swarajyatimes.in/the-entrepreneurial-journey-of-mir-hashim-ali-founder-of-salonik https://www.swarajyatimes.in/the-entrepreneurial-journey-of-mir-hashim-ali-founder-of-salonik New Delhi (India), March 3: Salonik, a leading supplier of premium quality dates and saffron in India, has been making waves in the market with its commitment to providing only the highest quality products. The man behind this successful venture is none other than Mir Hashim Ali, the founder of Salonik.


Mir Hashim Ali drew inspiration from his father, Mr. Hyder Ali, who was in the import and export business. With his father’s guidance and knowledge, Mir Hashim came up with the idea of trading premium quality dates and saffron. He saw an opportunity to differentiate himself from other service providers in the market by setting a “no compromise policy” with the quality of his products. Despite facing stiff price competition from other brands, Salonik refuses to lower its prices by reducing the quality of its products. The company is committed to supplying only the best quality products, which sets it apart from its competitors.


Every step of the supply chain, from the collection of quality products from the city of Bam in Iran to their packaging and transportation, is recorded to maintain transparency. The company’s dedication to quality has earned it a loyal customer base in India, and it has grown significantly in recent years. In fact, Salonik’s revenue increased by 2 crores to 7 crores last year, which is a testament to the company’s success.


However, the road to success was not easy for Salonik. In the beginning, Mir Hashim had to prove himself time and again as a teenager. But with the support of his father and his determination to succeed, Salonik overcame these hurdles and established itself as one of the leading suppliers of premium quality dates and saffron in India.


In a recent interview, Mir Hashim discussed the collaborations he has made with Kimia Dates in Iran and co-branding it and taking on board the quality and brand awareness. He also discussed how breaking collaborations can lead to a loss for both companies and advised that both company names should come forward while teaming up or co-branding to create fewer chances of breaking a collaboration. When asked about the role of spirituality in entrepreneurship, Mir Hashim responded that one should always have faith and believe in their vision. The basics of spirituality are the same for all, and hard work, patience, and generosity are all a part of it. Mir Hashim believes that the keynote of spirituality is the same, regardless of one’s religious background.


Looking to the future, Mir Hashim aims to make Salonik an international brand and eventually launch a brand with his own name, “MIR,” to make it as famous as any other world-famous brand. Currently, Salonik supplies its products only in India, but Mir Hashim plans to launch them worldwide soon.


When asked for advice for those just starting out, Mir Hashim stressed the importance of never giving up on one’s dream. He also advised that one should always embrace their failures and learn from them. Additionally, he encouraged eating healthy, doing exercise, and staying in touch with loved ones.


Salonik’s commitment to providing only the highest quality products and its determination to grow and succeed in the international market make it a company to watch in the upcoming years. With its increasing revenue and the leadership of Mir Hashim Ali, Salonik is poised to make a significant impact in the industry and establish itself as a global player.

Many people are now asking who she is and what her connection is to the self-proclaimed Hindu nation of Kailasa.

Kailasa, which claims to be a sovereign state for Hindus, was founded by controversial guru Nithyananda. He is currently on the run from Indian authorities, who have issued a warrant for his arrest in connection with several criminal cases.

Vijayapriya Nithyananda, who is not related to Nithyananda, has been making headlines as the face of Kailasa at the UN. She has been promoting Kailasa's agenda of establishing a global Hindu nation and has been advocating for the rights of Hindus around the world.

Many people are now questioning how a self-proclaimed state like Kailasa can have a representative at the UN. Some have also raised concerns about the legitimacy of Kailasa's claims and its founder Nithyananda's criminal background.

Vijayapriya Nithyananda has not yet commented on the controversy surrounding her role as Kailasa's representative at the UN. However, she has been actively promoting Kailasa's message on social media and has been sharing updates on Kailasa's activities.

The mystery surrounding Vijayapriya Nithyananda and Kailasa has sparked widespread curiosity and has led many people to question the credibility of Kailasa's claims. It remains to be seen how the situation will unfold and what implications it will have for the UN and the international community.

Another Ugly Brawl Highlights Dysfunction Within Delhi Civic Body https://www.swarajyatimes.in/another-ugly-brawl-highlights-dysfunction-within-delhi-civic-body https://www.swarajyatimes.in/another-ugly-brawl-highlights-dysfunction-within-delhi-civic-body The Delhi civic body sinks to a new low as another unsightly brawl unfolds

Once again, the Delhi civic body has found itself in the midst of an unseemly brawl, marking yet another low point for the organization. The incident, which involved a heated altercation between members of the body, has raised serious concerns about the group's ability to function effectively.

The details of the incident are still emerging, but reports suggest that the disagreement began over a contentious issue related to the organization's policies. As tensions rose, the argument quickly devolved into a physical altercation, with individuals on both sides engaging in aggressive behavior.

This latest incident has only served to highlight the dysfunction that seems to have taken hold within the Delhi civic body. In recent years, the organization has been beset by a number of scandals and controversies, ranging from allegations of corruption to infighting among members.

Many observers are now calling for urgent action to be taken to address the deep-rooted issues within the civic body.

Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma slams Pawan Khera for remarks on PM Modi https://www.swarajyatimes.in/assam-cm-himanta-biswa-sarma-slams-pawan-khera-for-remarks-on-pm-modi https://www.swarajyatimes.in/assam-cm-himanta-biswa-sarma-slams-pawan-khera-for-remarks-on-pm-modi Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has hit out at Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera for his recent comments on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, stating that the Congress leader was trying to tarnish the image of the Prime Minister.

In a tweet, Sarma said, "Make no mistake, the people of India stand firmly with PM @narendramodi ji. @Pawankhera Ji, your comments about the PM are deplorable & are aimed at tarnishing his image. It's better to work for your party's revival rather than resorting to such low-level politics."

Khera had made remarks on the Prime Minister's visit to Arunachal Pradesh, stating that the Prime Minister was more interested in taking credit for the development work done by the Congress government in the state.

"PM Modi ji is in Arunachal Pradesh today. He will take credit for the development work done by the Congress government. In Assam, he took credit for the work done by the Congress government. The reality is that he has done nothing for the development of the Northeast," Khera had said.

Sarma, who is a former Congress leader and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party in 2015, has been a vocal supporter of the Prime Minister and has often defended his policies and actions.

The Chief Minister's tweet comes amidst rising tensions between the Congress and the BJP, with both parties engaging in a war of words over various issues.

Earlier this week, the Congress had alleged that the BJP was trying to topple its government in Rajasthan, a charge that the BJP has denied.

With the upcoming assembly elections in several states, including Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, and Goa, political parties are gearing up for intense campaigning and are likely to engage in heated exchanges.

However, political analysts have warned that the focus should remain on the issues and not on personal attacks, as it can harm the democratic process and undermine the credibility of political leaders.

China Threatens US Entities Over Downed Spy Balloon in South China Sea https://www.swarajyatimes.in/china-threatens-us-entities-over-downed-spy-balloon-in-south-china-sea https://www.swarajyatimes.in/china-threatens-us-entities-over-downed-spy-balloon-in-south-china-sea China threatens US entities over downing of spy balloon, accused of overreacting

China has issued a threat to US entities after a spy balloon operated by the US was shot down by Chinese authorities. The incident occurred in the South China Sea, an area of contention between the two nations.

Chinese officials have accused the US of violating their airspace and endangering their national security. However, some experts are calling China's response an overreaction, stating that the spy balloon was likely not a significant threat.

The Chinese military has reportedly warned US entities to cease all activities in the region, or face "necessary measures" to protect their sovereignty. This threat has sparked concerns of escalating tensions between the two nations.

The US has not yet responded to China's warning. However, tensions between the two nations have been high in recent years, with both sides engaging in a trade war and accusing the other of human rights abuses.

The downing of the spy balloon has only added to these tensions, with some experts suggesting that the incident could trigger a more significant conflict between the two nations. Others, however, believe that the situation will eventually be resolved through diplomatic channels.

IMF Chief Georgieva Trims Optimistic Outlook on World Economy Amid Rising Inflation Concerns https://www.swarajyatimes.in/imf-chief-georgieva-trims-optimistic-outlook-on-world-economy-amid-rising-inflation-concerns https://www.swarajyatimes.in/imf-chief-georgieva-trims-optimistic-outlook-on-world-economy-amid-rising-inflation-concerns The Chief of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Kristalina Georgieva, has given an optimistic assessment of the world economy, but has acknowledged that rising inflation is beginning to have an impact.

Georgieva had previously expressed hope for a strong economic recovery as vaccination efforts continue around the world. However, in recent statements, she has recognized that inflation is a growing concern and could pose a risk to the economy.

Inflation, which measures the rate at which the general level of prices for goods and services is rising, has been on the rise in many countries in recent months. This has been due in part to supply chain disruptions caused by the pandemic, as well as increased demand as economies reopen.

Georgieva's comments reflect a growing concern among economists that rising inflation could lead to a slowdown in economic growth and even a global recession. While she maintains an overall positive outlook for the world economy, the IMF chief is urging policymakers to take action to address inflation and mitigate its impact on the recovery.

What is the difference between open&area yoga and yoga at home : Vaibhav Somani https://www.swarajyatimes.in/what-is-the-difference-between-open-area-yoga-and-yoga-at-home-vaibhav-somani https://www.swarajyatimes.in/what-is-the-difference-between-open-area-yoga-and-yoga-at-home-vaibhav-somani Yoga is a metaphor for life. You have to take it really slowly. You can’t rush. You can’t skip to the next position. You find yourself in very humiliating situations, but you can’t judge yourself. You just have to breathe, and let go. It is a workout for your mind, your body and your soul.

Madonna doesn’t require an introduction anywhere on the globe. And, besides her music, she is also to be credited with spreading yoga through the West. Because, what idols do, fans repeat. Today, this boon of India is blessing more than 300 million people worldwide who are regularly practicing yoga (Yoga Earth, 2022).

Over the gone decade, yoga has globally emerged as one of the eudemonic disciplines. It is a whole methodology of traversing out of one’s physical confines and into the spiritual dimension of life.

There are several ways to perform yoga: Some may like it in a studio with others, while some would rather sweat it out at a higher room temperature (viz. Bikram yoga). Yoga can generally be practiced inside, at home, or outside, in the freshair depending on personal privacy choices, space availability, and environmental factors.


Open-Air Yoga

This is practicing yoga in nature. You systematically develop a relationship with the natural elements, such as wind, sun, sand, and water, by embracing them.

Research proves that an adult human has a total lung capacity of about 6 liters of air. By doing yoga openly, you'll be able to breathe in higher-quality oxygen, which can help break out any impurities that mighthave built up in your alveoli. Better oxygen tends to cause more air to be inhaled and exhaled, which boosts cardiac function.
Without having to cram for space, you will have ampleroom to freely work your poses.
The challenging terrain necessitates a higher level of focus, thus intensifying your practice.
Contacting earth with your bare soles and palms makesyour heart pump smoother as the blood viscosity gets reduced.


Yoga at Home

The common justifications for being unable to do yoga, such as being busy, sleepy, cash-strapped, or uncomfortable, can be defeated by establishing a home routine because it will certainly be difficult to join yoga classes every day or locate an uncrowded area away.

At-home yoga is a great option for introverts who are more confident in action when nobody is watching.
Certain yoga postures may have you hesitant about assuming them in open areas. A quiet corner of your house is an ever-available choice in such a case.
Meditation – a major branch of yoga – is better attained when the mind knows that the door is shut and nobody can interrupt by unwanted arrivals or peeps.


Carrying Props Is Not a Bad Idea

While there are varying views, most yoga instructors recommend the use of yoga accessories. Mats are one such accessory. Because gone are the times when yoga gurus achieved perfection in this art within ashrams. Will the ultramodern yoga practitioners of today prefer to travel back in time and do it in dirt or mud?

Yoga mats, in particular, can be advantageous if you struggle with a particular yoga pose. They support your body, keepingyour alignment correct and facilitating the practice of yoga. Mats also help you feel more secure and at ease while you master those complex poses if you are new to yoga.

Props also help you adapt the poses if you are suffering an illness or injury or are having any medical concerns. Use props to practice yoga more safely.


In the end:—

Regardless of where yoga is performed and with props or not, each asana is packed with wonderful advantages, which get transitioned into you as stretch into them. Therefore, doing yoga regularly is more important.

LTTE Leader V Prabhakaran Alive, Plans to be Revealed Soon https://www.swarajyatimes.in/ltte-leader-v-prabhakaran-alive-plans-to-be-revealed-soon https://www.swarajyatimes.in/ltte-leader-v-prabhakaran-alive-plans-to-be-revealed-soon New Delhi : According to a prominent Tamil leader, V Prabhakaran, the former head of the banned terrorist organization, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), is alive and well. The leader, who wished to remain anonymous, stated that plans regarding the Sri Lankan Tamil separatist group leader's future will be revealed at a later date.

The LTTE, also known as the Tamil Tigers, was a separatist group that fought for the establishment of an independent Tamil state in the northern and eastern regions of Sri Lanka. The group was banned in 32 countries and was designated a terrorist organization by the Sri Lankan government, the Indian government, and several other nations.

After a long and brutal civil war, the Sri Lankan military declared victory over the LTTE in 2009, and Prabhakaran was believed to have been killed during the conflict. However, the recent claim by the Tamil leader has raised questions about the circumstances surrounding his death and sparked speculation about his possible return to the political scene.

The leader did not provide any evidence to support the claim of Prabhakaran's survival, and it remains unclear what the plans for the former LTTE leader may be. The news has generated a mixture of reactions from various communities, with some expressing disbelief and others expressing hope for a resolution to the decades-long conflict.

The Sri Lankan government has yet to respond to the claims made by the Tamil leader, and it remains to be seen what impact, if any, this announcement will have on the country's political landscape. Regardless, the news of Prabhakaran's alleged survival has once again brought the issue of Tamil separatism to the forefront and reignited debates about the future of Sri Lanka's Tamil minority.
