After almost nine months when schools were shut down in March due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the Maharashtra education department has now planned to reopen schools for grades nine to 12 from November 23, State Education Minister, Varsha Gaikwad, announced on Friday.


As reported by ANI, Gaikwad informed, We have proposed before the state government to restart classes in schools for Class 9, 10, 11 and 12 from November 23. Also, we have proposed that exams of Class 10 and Class 12 should be conducted in May, instead of February or March.”

Each year, the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE), conducts examinations for classes 10 and 12 in February and March respectively. But, due to the ongoing crisis of COVID-19 and incompletion of syllabus, the state government proposed to conduct the 10th and 12th boards exams in May.
Gaikwad also mentioned that since students have not been able to conduct physical classes, her priority was to get every student back on track before they appeared for their board examinations.

Due to incompletion of syllabus, because of the lockdown, Gaikwad informed, I have also discussed the issue of how much curriculum can be omitted so that teachers can complete the remaining part. We will have to cut at least 25 per cent of the curriculum.

As parents are still skeptical about sending their kids back to school, Gaikwad ensured on taking all safety precautions instructed but the central and state government. The government will ensure that appropriate measures are in place for the safety of students and teachers in schools.

Before sending their children for physical classes, parents will have to submit a no objection? application to the respective departments. Even if parents disagree, students online classes would still continue and their grades wouldn’t depend on their attendance.

Maharashtra so far has recorded, 1,02,099 active cases in the state with a recovery rate of 91.35 per cent. With 5,027 new positive cases on Saturday, COVID-19 tally in the state reached to 17,10,314 on Friday. The case fatality rate in the state is 2.63 per cent.

Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”

Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”

Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
