The 21-day-lockdown imposed by PM Narendra Modi on March 24, to curb the spread of Coronavirus in the country, has brought with itself great deal of challenges for citizens across the country. The worst hit by the lockdown are the poor and homeless, who are finding it hard to even manage a meal a day.

Fortunately, the lockdown has united the nation like never before. NGOs, Police personnel, corporate companies and individuals across the country have come forward to help the needy with food and shelter.

While it’s great that people have come together to help the needy, stray animals continue to get ignored. It is keeping this in mind that BJP’s MP Maneka Gandhi, through a communiqué, a few days back, urged NGOs involved in animal welfare to feed strays during the lockdown, saying that if these animals were not fed, they would starve to death.

To save the dogs from dying from starvation, Dr Suresh Mekala, Joint Commissioner, Thane Police, has come to the rescue of the stray dogs in the city. While he is already playing an active role along with other police personnel from Thane in helping out the poor with food distribution drives, Dr Mekala, on his own, runs a drive for stray dogs.

Dr Mekala, who loves dogs, is making sure, along with his friends that he can feed as many stray dogs as he can. Speaking to Nation Next, Dr Mekala said, I started the initiative to feed stray dogs as I love dogs. I have some friends, to whom I daily give rice and chicken. They have set up a kitchen and they cook the food for dogs there. In the evening, they take the food in their vehicle and feed around 150 dogs daily.

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!”
