Pre-Orders Start for Clay Ganesh Idols August 26, 2016 09:58

With many people not knowing where to get eco-friendly Ganeshas from, residential colonies have come together in their forums to help people procure them.Many residential colonies having their own WhatsApp groups, information is being shared to members in advance to pre-book clay Ganeshas on them.Idol makers have been sourced from various parts of the city like Abids, Begum Bazaar, Moosarambagh, Nagole, Uppal and KPHB colony from whom idols can be pre-ordered.Mr K. Panduranga, president of residential colonies in ECIL said, “Last year a lot of households had complained that they were not able to procure clay Ganeshas as they did not know where to get them from. Hence this year, a fortnight ago, we started creating awareness amongst the residents. Names of vendors and telephone numbers are being provided on various groups so that people can pre-order idols or procure them directly.”Mass pre-bookings are also being done in colonies in Tarnaka, Uppal, Mettuguda, A.S. Rao Nagar, Bowenpally, Trimulgherry and other areas where housing colonies celebrate the festival. Ms Laxmi Reddy, an architecture student, has been trying her hand at idol making for the last three years.She said, “This year there is a workshop being conducted for enthusiasts who want to make their own idols. Guidance from a trained person would help.”Workshops are being held in 10 areas and over 300 centers by Youth for Seva in the city who are going to make idols of less than one feet. Mr Anil Bhagat, coordinator of YFS said, “We are conducting workshops on weekends for people who want small idols at their homes.”When it comes to puja, there are many norms to be followed. People mostly don’t know how to perform this puja. Twenty-one types of leaves have been identified for puja, which are also helpful for purifying water. Residents, who have sourced this information from various pundits who perform pujas, have looked into the sanctity and also for environment friendly mediums so that water bodies can be protected.Ms Uma Rao, said, “As per the rituals, leaves, barks and other tree parts are to be used for the puja. These, when put directly in water, will get decomposed and also help in purifying water.”People should refrain from using plastics and thermocol for puja and decoration. Architect Ms Neha Shailender said, “Instead of using plastic plates, people can use eco-friendly donnas, banana leaves and ishtarak plates for prasadam.” Also Read: 30 Percent Ganesh Idols Booked in Advance BY M.DIVYA SRI

Two Gunmen Attack American University in Kabul August 25, 2016 10:46

In a shocking incident, two gunmen attacked the American University in Kabul at around 6:30pm local time (1400 GMT) on Wednesday.At least twelve people were killed and created panic among hundreds of students. Officials said “The attack began with a large explosion said to be a car bomb followed by gunfire, as suspected militants battled into the complex where foreign staff and pupils were working.”According to a senior interior ministry official as soon as the news about the attack spread, Afghan forces surrounded the walled compound and eventually worked their way inside. “The fight is over and at least two attackers are killed,” a police official at the scene said. “Right now a clearance operation is ongoing by a criminal technique team. More details will be announced soon.”Information on casualties remained uncertain, but the Afghan public health ministry said “one guard was killed and at least 21 people were wounded, six critically. No foreigners were reported among the wounded.”Kabul police Chief Abdul Rahman Rahimi said earlier on Thursday that “security forces had rescued around 500 students from the university, which is popular with Afghanistan’s elite.”Terrified students ran into the classrooms or jumping from the second floor in order to escape. “Many students jumped from the second floor, some broke their legs and some hurt their head trying to escape,” Abdullah Fahimi, a student who escaped, told Reuters. He injured his ankle making the leap.“We were in the class when we heard a loud explosion followed by gunfire. It was very close. Some students were crying, others were screaming.”Ahmad Mukhtar, who also fled, said “the gunmen had got into the university buildings despite security measures, including armed guards and watchtowers.”“I finished my class and was about to leave when I heard a few gunshots and a huge explosion, followed by more gunfire,” he said. “I ran toward the emergency exit with other students, climbed the wall and jumped outside.”The American University of Afghanistan has about 1,700 students. It opened in 2006 and caters to full-time and part-time course for students. The United States said “we are closely monitoring the situation in Kabul following the university attack and that forces from the US-led coalition were involved in the response in an advise and assist role.”State Department spokesperson Elizabeth Trudeau said “the US Embassy was working to account for all of its personnel and to locate and assist any US citizens affected by the attack.” Also Read: Private TV channel attacked by MQM activistsBY M.DIVYA SRI
