Against the backdrop of increasing COVID-19 cases in the city, Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has imposed strict restrictions as a preventive measure.

As a result, all establishments, offices and shops are to remain closed on Saturdays and Sundays until further orders.

Nagpur Mayor Dayashankar Tiwari and Commissioner Radhakrishnan B, on Thursday, appealed to the citizens to abide COVID-19 norms and co-operate in complying with the restrictions imposed by the administration to break the chain of Coronavirus.

If one person infected with the virus goes into the crowd, 25 other citizens can get infected as well. It is not right to endanger the health of others and hence, while working in public places, it is mandatory to follow COVID-19 norms and instructions issued by the administration from time to time, Mayor Dayashankar Tiwari said.

Essential services would stay available. Stay home and cooperate with the administration, he added.

NMC is taking strict steps to contain COVID-19 cases in Nagpur. Corporation’s Nuisance Detection Squad (NDS) is taking action against the violators every day. However, only action cannot contain the virus, it is also essential to follow the rules and prevent the infection, NMC Commissioner Radhakrishnan B said.

NMC has appealed that no one should go out of their house on Saturdays and Sundays. Except essential services, no shops, malls, markets, theatres, restaurants, hotels, eateries, government or semi-government offices, private offices, abattoirs of the corporation, shops selling meat in the city would remain shut, he added.

Remembrance

When Lata Mangeshkar got offended by Dilip Kumar and didn’t speak to him for 13 years

Late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. She would also tie rakhi to the latter.

Nightingale of India, late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. So much so that the Queen of Melody would also tie rakhi to the latter. She was among the close ones who visited the late actor during his last days. But do you know the reason why their relation had gone sour, as a result of which they did not speak for 13 long years?

The story dates back to the time when Lata Mangeshkar was to sing ‘Laagin Naahi Chhute’ for the film Musafir, in 1957. At that time, Kumar told music composer Anil Biswas, “The Urdu of Marathis (Maharashtrians) is like dal and rice.” This offended the veteran singer, after which she decided to hone her Urdu speaking skills.

After 13 years when they met in 1970, the veteran singer remarked, “You know, Yusuf saab, I’d always heard you loathed me for being one up on you while recording the Laagi Naahin Chhute Rama duet with you in Musafir. But I only sang the way I can’t help singing any number.”

To this, Kumar gleefully asserted, “It’s precisely because you can’t help singing the way you do that my family and I adore you! How possibly could I loathe a voice so heavenly!”

On February 6, 2022, due to COVID-induced prolonged illness, the illustrious singer passed away in Mumbai.

BJP National Secretary Pankaja Munde said even Prime Minister Narendra Modi wouldn’t be able to end her political career if she lived in people’s hearts and minds. Munde said the same on Tuesday while addressing a public rally — part of PM Modi’s birthday celebrations for a fortnight across Maharashtra — at Ambajogai in Maharashtra’s Beed district.

Munde said, “If I live in people’s mind and heart, even Modiji cannot end my political career… Dynasty politics has been prevailing in the Congress party. Modiji, however, wants to end the dynasty rule… I hail from a political family, but if I live in your mind and heart, nobody will be able to finish (end the career) me. If I live in people’s minds and hearts, even Modiji cannot finish my political career.”
