Unpaid internships are intended to provide valuable experience and contacts to young workers, while lowering costs and risks to organizations. If a job-like experience is a boon for a trainee, then knowing the monetary value of their labour is also necessity. 



But are they fair?

"College life was a lot of fun, though problems come as fast as the cheetah runs, but its what motivates me to do the best I can"



One of the most interesting stages in life that gives you an opportunity to explore is the ‘college phase.’ Life at college is the time when the teenage years end and we all dive deep into the ocean of new beginnings and possibilities. This golden period better equips you for all the challenges you’ll face in life and creates a strong foundation of knowledge. 

My experience as a first year student of LSR and the experience of bring bubbled at home due to COVID-19 taught me one thing ,“Life is unpredictable.”

Many in the country seem set to welcome the new move, though Gadgets 360 is yet to receive a clarity on the matter. However, many fans of the game have been requesting the authorities to not include PUBG Mobile in any fresh list of banned apps.





What is PUBG Mobile?





PUBG is a battle royale game developed by PUBG Corporation, a subsidiary of South Korean video game company Bluehole. The game is available on PC, Xbox, PlayStation and Mobile. The game was created by Brendan Greene (PlayerUnknown) and released back in 2017.

In order to avoid that the victims are forces to stage their own kidnapping and make the abduction seem genuine and send this recording as a proof to their relatives in China which will help them obtain the ransom.

Let us talk about SEX: Moving Beyond Birds and Bees



Sexual Education, or as we like to address it with its PG euphemism, Family Life Education, is far from being accepted as a necessary component of education.



Sex education is high quality teaching and learning about a broad variety of topics related to sex and sexuality, exploring values and beliefs about those topics and gaining the skills that are needed to navigate relationships and manage one’s own sexual health. Sex education may take place in schools, in community settings, or online. Planned Parenthood believes that parents play a critical and central role in providing sex education.



In a country that reports high rates of teenage pregnancies and sexual abuse, one would think that the need for a curriculum focu... Read More

2020: A repeat of 2008?




With huge economic strain given the impact of pandemic, it's time we question the leaders, the economists on whether it's a repeat of the history of the great recession of 2008?




A decade after the Great Recession of 2008, the global economy indicates the resurgence of economic complacency and unpredictability of markets as we dwell within close proximity of yet another global economic crisis.




 

Now: Main Street has collapsed

Firstly, Covid has given a huge lift to online learning both in the metros and non-metros. Online education, for instance, has got a major boost. Educational institutions, business organisations among others, have taken online education to a new level by offering classes, coaching and courses in an innovative way to keep their audience hooked at these times of lockdown. In India, students and professionals are signing up for online classes- from entrance exams. 



Secondly, we have become more hygiene conscious. Yes, you heard it right. People have started taking personal hygiene more seriously. The ritual of washing hands, sanitizing things before use, that started as a compulsion is becoming a habit. According to IANS C-VOTER Gallup International Association Corona.

CYBERBULLYING



The humanitarian crisis has cultivated a ‘New Normal’ vitality for all of us. Ranging from quarantine greenhouse dates to online classes and good-byes, we all have harmonized to the culture. Technology played an integral role in maintaining the continuity as it brought new dimensions to the responsibilities of educators and mentors. 

But we need self-introspection to rethink the ethical use of technology. If Zoom is that easy to hack into, it’s likely to expect kids and teens trying to follow suit. The era where gadgets are the ‘toys’ for the kids plus the ‘Lockdown’ has increased the fear of ‘Cyberbullying.

A return to how life was at the start of 2020 is some way off. Even when lockdown restrictions are eased, coronavirus will affect our lives in many ways. What will struggle to get back to how it was before, and what might change for ever?



From Zooming clients to neighbourhood WhatsApp groups, digital platforms have become the only way for many of us to work, get fit or be educated and entertained. 



We're more relaxed about screen time hours for us and our kids, a huge culture shift from just a few weeks ago. It feels unlikely that'll disappear overnight. 



But key to a recovery will be job creation and keeping down living costs. The former means that, however uneasy, governments may have to tolerate China's continued investment around the globe. 



As for the latter, businesses need to keep costs low, and overseas sourc... Read More

For anybody whose once normal everyday life was suddenly shattered by an act of sexual violence– the trauma, the terror, can shatter you long after one horrible attack. It lingers. You don’t know where to go or who to turn to…and people are more suspicious of what you were wearing or what you were drinking, as if it’s your fault, not the fault of the person who assaulted you…We still don’t condemn sexual assault as loudly as we should. We make excuses, we look the other way…[Laws] won’t be enough unless we change the culture that allows assault to happen in the first place.



- President Barack Obama, September 2014

As countries begin loosening restrictions and easing lockdowns, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) released guidelines to allow private offices in India to operate at 100 per cent capacity, but urged people to work from home as much as possible.



Not just India, several countries have released norms for employees. In New Zealand, for instance, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said that those businesses in the “position to do so” should consider a four-day workweek in order to boost domestic tourism.



Some private companies too have initiated steps to change their work culture in order to adapt to the pandemic. Tech giant Twitter, for example, was among the first global companies to allow employees to work from home. In a blog post publis... Read More

The normalcy till December 2019 is dearly missed by the people across the globe, with no restrictions, stepping out at any time of the day, be it to simply hang out with friends or to sit and have a little “me time” at the café.

Alas, 2020 wasn’t in their favour.

Only two years after the end of World War II, the French couturier presented a collection that symbolized not only a departure from previous styles, but the beginning of a new society. 



After the war period of utilitarian attires and vestiary austerity, perhaps nothing felt newer than Dior's vision. His first collection rejected the modern course of dressing established in the 1920s and 30s, which intended to liberate women from the restrictive sculptural volumes and corsets of early 20th-century fashion. Instead, he presented an image of radical femininity, achieved by tight-fitting jackets with padded hips, petite waists, and A-line skirts.



Dior became the new star of the Parisian haute couture scene and almost instantly transformed the wardrobe of the contemporary woman. The "New Look," the name by which Dior's style eventually went dow... Read More

Denim is a fabric that is used in clothing all over the world such as jeans, jackets, and shirts. However, the history of denim is rich and varied and dates back further than you might realize. However, the actual history of denim is shrouded in mystery. Not many people know the true history of this fabric and how it came to be in the form that we know today. 



WHERE DID DENIM COME FROM ?



Denim fabric has its origins in France. This nation, as you may know, is considered to be one of the fashion capitals of the world, so it’s no surprise that one of the most significant clothing trends of the past century came from there.



Initially, denim began life as a fabric known as "serge de Nimes." As keen-eyed readers will notice, ‘de Nimes’ bears a resemblance to denim, which is what this fabr... Read More

Money never sleeps but humans do!

India can grow two-fold by simply sleeping more!

Sacrificing Sleep is the crazy frenzy ‘Habit’ to end up making big bucks in this productivity-obsessed world. Inadequate sleep not only hinders individual health and well-being, but its effects ripple into the economy.

In pursuit of chasing money and fame, people are fast forgetting the power of sleep- a biological necessity and body’s own way of recovery. Vitamin M (money) has become the globally understood language.

Who saw a time where sleep had to be advertised? In lust for monetary increments, we, so called ‘rational consumers’ have lost sight of all rationale.

 In India, 93% of the population is sleep deprived which ... Read More

In 2018-19, exports of the Indian leather industry amounted to $5.69 billion, but the uncertainty over Covid-19 is expected to have led to a sharp decline in the business. Our exports stood at $5.69 billion last year. Estimates show that we have so far achieved around $4.34 billion this fiscal and we need to catch up with another $1.4 billion to touch last year’s numbers. We are awaiting final numbers for this fiscal to figure out actual exports.



 



South India accounts for nearly one-third of the leather manufacturing units. The predominance of the south in the industry also stems from the fact that the Council for Leather Exports, the industry body for leather, is based in Chennai. Within south India, Tamil Nadu plays a significant role with the Ranipet-Visharam-Vellore-Ambur- Vaniyambadi belt on the Chennai- Bengaluru National Highway being a hub for the industry and as an employment optio...

Money Heist is a Spanish tv show following the lives of people some of whom are felons , however it takes up their journey beyond as a group together rather than rallying on their past . It is a tumultuous ride spanning a few days or more so hours with putting out the experience and action that takes place in each second of their heist.

Also the detailed intricacies involved with the conceptualization of the TV show differentiate it from primetime heist based programs. It indulges the views into each aspect involved with the planning an execution of a heist . The series plays around with the idea of romance with action while discussing the altering impact on the psych of people involved in high pressure situations.

It also doesnt shy away from the pragmatic results of such a high risk situations and displays the cataclysmic impacts it could have on the lives of this groups. While it certainly paints the robbers as the heroes it does not ov... Read More

Mr COVID-19 toured all length and breadth across the globe and the unwelcomed guest made us unsafe even in our own bubbled space within the confines of our homes. The ‘Invisible Virus’ brought all of us under the microscope. As the civilization was scrambling to discover the vaccine, the ease in limitations cultivated a “New Normal” vitality for me.

Experiences expresses the essence of viewpoint of life and so let us talk about how I balanced the skepticism of being unproductive and the sensibility of being productive.

When I walk down the lane of ‘small memories' with Mr. Covid-19 who has been indirectly dating me for the last 3 months, I realize that I have harmonized with this “New Culture” of Pandemic.

“Empowerment is about spreading hope and happiness”

The battle of officially being recognised on paper although had a full stop but the access to physical and emotional security is still a struggle for the Transgender.

“More than one in four transgender people have lost a job due to bias, and more than three-fourths have experienced some form of workplace discrimination. Refusal to hire, privacy violations, harassment, and even physical and sexual violence on the job are common occurrences, and are experienced at even higher rates by transgender people of colour.”

Elevating transgender people out of crisis and into empowerment by building power in our communities to advocate for liberation and autonomy has always been a challenge.

Australia refused to give any further details regarding the attacks. Previously, defense manufacturers, government contractors, and accounting firms have been among those to report data breaches.



According to Prime Minister Morrison, Australia's government and institutions are being targeted by ongoing sophisticated state-based cyber hacks, for a long time. But the Cyber intelligence experts have long linked various hacks in Australia to China.



Australia is reluctant to name the culprit or suspect because relations between the countries have grown tense in recent years.

Writing about the members of a community which has been facing prejudices from time immemorial is not easy. The apartheid faced are intense which can easily destruct the very person’s mental stability, driving them to take a step as of taking their own lives. Even whilst the death of an actor has enraged millions which drove everyone to post the trending hashtag #mentalhealthmatters  makes them believe it will help those suffering. At some point of time we all have conjectured people, especially the hijras, from whom we’ve been taught maintain as much distance as we can. But why so? Are they genuinely forgetting about shiv and shakti or trying to ignore it?

“The Chief Justice said that Lord Jagannath won’t forgive us if we allow this year’s Rath Yatra to go on.” I agree to this. Ratha Yatra, every year around 10 to 12 Lakhs of devotees thronged the coastal town of Puri to catch the glimpse of deities re-embodied after 19 years on chariots on the occasion of Rath Yatra, marking largest-ever religious congregation in Odisha.



 



Yes, lakhs of devotees. And it’s impossible to maintain social distancing when there are lakhs of people. In the court order, the “CJI observed that the rath yatra normally draws a crowd of 10-13 lakh and continues for a period of 10-15 days.” The court said such a large gathering raises public health and safety concerns during a pandemic. And it’s right for them to be concerned, it will drastically increase the number of cases of positive patients. Even ... Read More

“The right to say no was a right he ought to exercise if he wanted his yes to mean something.” 

― Alex Beecroft, Blue Steel Chain.

Sex, a word which is feared to be used out in the public amidst the grossly overpopulated country like India, ironical isn’t it? The word consent means the “permission for something to happen or agreement to do something.” A meaning of which anyone can google, yet no one knows how to apply the meaning practically in their everyday lives. The evidence is the rise in the number of cases of sexual assault, harassment, and rapes. 

The society needs a variance in the idiosyncrasy that there is huge difference between rape and consensual sex. If a person has indulged in consensual sex it does not mean (mostly in the case of women) that the person has brought upon shame to the family name. Think of it this way, we have bodies... Read More

The shocker waved across the country, when one the most adroit and determined actors of Bollywood at age 34 is lost. Reminiscing the actors’ time, the directors as well as his colleagues are rendered speechless by the very step taken by the actor. No one has the answer as to why such a prospering actor would decide to take his own life whist at the apex of his life, with so much ahead for him to see.  What seemed unusual is that the movies for which the actor worked for were quite inspirational and has an impact on one’s life. The question which needs to be answered is one word; why?



One sentence which is often quite iterated as to why such a talented actor, who was “at the peak of his career” or who had a wonderful career” would be forced to take such a step? This not implies the façade one is forced to put on but also the mentality of the customary society that only an asp... Read More

The world population as of now is over 7.6  Billion. Covid-19 has created a majot crisis in 2020. It’s caused by human activities. The pandemic, is a human overpopulation problem. It seems that we have not really understood the role that crowding and overpopulation play, as crutial reasons for the pandemic. There are two main factors at play. As the city expanded and sprawled, natural lands gave way to human settlement. But as more and more people live in crowded cities, it becomes harder to control a pathogen that takes days to manifest.



Overpopulation is accompanied by negative environmental and economic outcomes ranging from the impacts of over-farming, deforestation, and water pollution to eutrophication and global warming. While a lot of  steps are being taken to better ensure that humans stay sustained, the issue of overcrowding has made lasting solutions more challenging to find. The reasons are that Overpopu...

Now, we have to follow the same precautions strictly and go on with the activities of life.



While the Government has responsibility to ensure healthy living and to protect the lives of people, there is equal responibility to ensure the economic well being of the society. Both objectives could only be achieved by implementing Covid 19 protocol strictly and opening up of economic activity.

With the cases rising every day, its mark tends to reach a new height of 2,76,583 confirmed cases in India, surpassing Italy and Spain, reaching to the new limits of 5th most affected country by the virus worldwide. Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister has alarmed Indians regarding the rise of covid cases which is likely to reach the 5.5 lakhs limit by the end of July. Now that’s not what Indians were expected to excel at.



According to the experiences of a few people, the hospitals are left with hardly any beds to treat new patients affected by the virus and simply not allowed to get admitted. Rumours has it that it is being done to alter the number of registered cases. Following this very fact, there’s a possibility that India is very close to surpass the United Kingdom.

Schools have transitioned to distance learning, forcing parents to simultaneously manage their kids’ schooling and their own jobs. That part is nothing new to homeschooling parents, who have been sharing tips while they also navigate the changed realities outside. Parents have become accidental home school teachers now.  Home school parents advised others to keep in mind that academics are not the most important — especially while living in a pandemic.

HOME SCHOOLING: Rejection of the cookie-cutter approach to education



“The philosophy of Home Schooling is, you take real life and then you turn that into schooling.”



“Tota Kahani” by Rabindranath Tagore narrates the story of a free-spirited parrot who would hop, skip, fly and sing all day. A king ordered that the bird be 'civilized', and so it was put in a golden cage. In the flood of restrictions and instructions, it soon forgot to sing, and then, couldn't even squawk. When it tried to fly, its wings were clipped. Soon the parrot died, with not a sound except for the rustle of books in its stomach.



The same story is painted on the walls of Shikshantar in Udaipur, which calls itself a people's institute for rethinking education and development. In the mural, t... Read More

Josh Frydenberg, the first treasurer in around three decade to preside over a recession remarked that a recession was an inevitable reality after national accounts show the gross domestic product falling by 0.3% in the March quarter. A report was released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The nation had a successful growth which was hampered by the recent coronavirus crisis and the impact of wildfires that Australia has been facing. Over the past twelve months the growth rate was only 1.4% , the weakest performance since the global financial crisis.



While Frydenberg said the contraction in Australia was less severe than many other countries battling the economic shock associated with the coronavirus pandemic, he warned people to brace for “difficult days ahead” because the June quarter results would be worse than the impact felt in March. According to Frydenberg “an economist’s version of ... Read More

In a recent turn of events, the students who’ve been pursuing their education from the grand state with rich history of Maharashtra, have a profound sigh of relief by the decision of the Chief Minister of Maharashtra to promote students pursuing their final year to cancel all their examinations and promote them on the basis of aggregate marks scored by the student in their previous semester while the students who feel that they can perform better are welcomed to take the examinations in the months of October-November, 2020. The decision was taken in the light of recent events where Mr. Thackrey announced if, under any circumstances the lockdown is extended till June 30, 2020, the state will not have any option but to promote the final year students.



While there surely must’ve been a roar of joy amongst the student, The Governor expressed his on the decision taken by the Chief Minister of Mumbai. Governor B.S. Koshyari claim... Read More

“Australia could return to international action in August with a three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe penciled into the schedule in the northern parts of the country.” But the main question is, this the right time to schedule matches ? There's a risk of infection everywhere, when you leave your house there's a risk, so I think we shouldn't think too much about it and matches should be scheduled later. I understand the concern of the fans but it’s never worth risking lives. But we must understand that it's essential we comply with the protocols and follow the prevention measures as much as we can. Returning to training is the first step but we shouldn't get complacent and we must take all precautions necessary. We'll have to see what the final plan is.

The subsequent arrest, a violent one of Floyd, a black man, was filmed by many members of the public. He could be seen on the ground with his hands cuffed behind him while a white officer, Derek Chauvin, 44, pressed him to the pavement with his knee on Floyd’s neck.

China's legislature has approved a proposal to impose a highly contentious national security law in Hong Kong, in an unprecedented move that critics say threatens fundamental political freedoms and civil liberties in the semi-autonomous territory.

The country's rubber-stamp parliament, the National People's Congress (NPC), nearly unanimously approved the resolution Thursday to introduce the sweeping security legislation, which bans secession, subversion of state power, terrorism, foreign intervention and allows mainland China's state security agencies to operate in the city.

Only one delegate voted against the proposal, while 2,878 voted for and six abstained.

The law will drastically broaden Beijing's power over Hong Kong, which last year was roiled by anti-government protests calling for greater democracy and more autonomy from mainland China.

It is every person’s dream to celebrate their love and tie a knot with the person they love. Unfortunately, most of them are judged and are treated as an inferior because of their sexual preference. But this is not the story of Alexandra Quiros and Dunia Araya, the two Ticos as they tied a knot on MAY 26, 2020.



A ray of hope glimmered on July 1, 2018, where the President made a public apology to the members of the LGBTQ community who had faced a dire situation of descrimination and eventually the issue of same sex marriage was finally raised in August 2018 the constitutional court underlined that ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional and discriminatory, and within a span of 18 months, the ban was overruled.

Is Periods 250 miles above the Earth and in Space same?

Red, the color that symbolizes energy, strength, power, rage, passion and desire and also love is color of life that is emotionally intrinsic to us.  

Sally Kristen Ride became the first US woman to exit Earth’s atmosphere and when she was preparing to enter into the space, the great debate came down to her menstrual cycle. While she was preparing for her history-making mission in 1983, NASA engineers were trying to gather the essentials she needed to take with her. They thought to include tampoons, but they had no idea how many women actually use.

A dessert locust, which the citizens have been noticing all over India, belong to the grasshopper family of Acrididae. These are highly mobile creatures which feed on green vegetation, therefore, proving to be one of the most devastating creatures on the planet.

In the past few days, the internet has been flooded with videos depicting swarms of these locusts have been covering the entire roof, walls of buildings of the Indian states of Katol (in Nagpur) on Monday morning, eventually, they made their way from Madhya Pradesh into Amravati district on May 24 as a result of current wind direction. They were also spotted on Jaipur, Rajasthan, Gujrat, and Uttar Pradesh. A swarm of locust entails 150 million per hectare square, and at present these insects can cause major damage to crops.

“Sexuality leads to Self-Knowledge” 

I broke my silence today and whined as loud as I could, “Yes! I’m a Gay. I cherish flaunting with my worn long hair and I fancy dating a lovely man because I’m proud of my individuality.”

I started discovering my intense temptation towards same-sex when I was 14 but I was scared to endorse myself. The impressions of abnormality and medication used to vex me and I was eaten like a horse with, “Self-hatred.”

“Hey Mr. Long Hair, the thresholds of your happiness must be traversing all horizons. Section 377 has been decriminalized. So, confess your love.”, said the teacher, embarrassing me in front of my classmates. So, I broke my silence as my sexuality is my identity.

After two months of lockdown, airlines finally opened the gates for citizens of India. A common question which might have arisen in one’s mind is how was the “new normalcy” handled by the citizens and most importantly, the airport authorities.



As it was assumed, some stated were not keen for resumption for flights amidst the lockdown.  Around 630 domestic flights which were scheduled to operate on Monday were cancelled which were suppose to fly to West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh, while the number of flights were limited to Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad. The announcement of flight cancellations was made by the Centre on Sunday night.



What boggled the citizens even more was when they reached the airport on Monday and were told by the airline staff about the cancellation. Agitated, the citizens took their anger to social media which portrayed bellicose and disappointment. Wit... Read More

A few weeks after Elon Musk and Grimes revealed their baby's confusing name, the couple has apparently altered the unique moniker. In an Instagram comment, a fan asked Grimes if the couple changed the name of their newborn son due to California laws that require only alphabetical letters. The singer replied, confirming they did make a tweak to X Æ A-12.

Making a slight change to the name of their newborn, Tesla CEO Elon Musk and his singer girlfriend Grimes have now named their first child X AE A-Xii.
The difference is only in the numeral part of the name which is now written in the Roman format.

Change or not, the child is still highly likely to get bullied in school. He should still consider changing his name to a more pronounceable one.

On 31st December when the hands of the clock struck 12, the whole world rejoiced, making New Year’s resolutions, promising to make this year count. Little did they know 2020 was a year of destruction. Since January the year has been off to a rocky start. This has specially been problematic for China.



The corona virus was first identified in China on 31st December 2019 according to the WHO China Country Office. The Virus was isolated on January 7, 2020 and finally the WHO confirmed the outbreak of the virus on January 12, 2020. This put China on the Hit list by the world. The Country was severely censured by all the countries, especially with the US, commonly referred to as the “Political Virus” these days. The US President is failing not to leave any chance to criticize China as he refers Covid-19 as the “Wuhan Virus” or the “Chinese Virus.”

On Friday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany held up a cheque written by President Trump for $100,000 — his contribution to COVID-19 relief efforts. While doing so, she accidentally revealed his bank account details.

In a press briefing on Friday, McEnany announced that Trump contributed this “to support the efforts being undertaken to confront, contain and combat the coronavirus”.

Experts have said it is unlikely that Trump’s account will be hacked into as it will have additional security measures in place due to his post as President of the United States. McEnany was appointed as Press Secretary of Donald Trump’s administration in April, this year.

Even though it's unlikely for his account to get hacked, keeping in mind such small details is necessary, to prevent any chance of such incidents from occurring. As we all know, 2020 has been so unpredictable. Read More

Locust attack in Malwa-Nimar this year is one of the biggest by the insects in last 27 years and is likely to grow till monsoon, claimed experts.

Locust is an insect that belongs to the family of grasshoppers. When these locusts meet suitable environmental conditions, they become gregarious and start breeding abundantly. With their population becoming denser, they form swarms and keep moving across areas damaging the crops.

India's approach to controlling locust plague :

India is equipped with a proper structure that is responsible to deal with the locust crisis. Our country has a regular system in place comprising Locust Officers. These authorised people with the knowledge of environment and agriculture organise six annual border meetings with Pakistan between June and November to analyse the situation and take necessary action.

AMPHAN”, EVACUATION AMID CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC

AMPHAN pronounced as “UM-PUN” is the super-tropical cyclonic storm with a speed of 240 km/h, a minimum pressure of 925 hPa. A tropical cyclone is a weather phenomenon that is essentially a rapidly rotating storm system with characteristics such as a low-pressure centre, strong winds and thunderstorms that produce heavy rain, among others.

“AMPHAN” like giant engines uses warm, moist air as fuel from the area of low pressure over the southern Bay of Bengal.

 Aman initially grew powerful because the waters it passed over were exceedingly warm, as high as 88 degrees in parts of the Indian Ocean. Warmer water provides more of the ene... Read More

Following the 2-month shutdown nationwide, the economy had come to a halt with absolutely nothing and no one working. This led to believe everyone that they finally had time to themselves and that it had stopped where they could, for once do sit in the comfort of their homes and not worry about the deadline on which the reports had to be submitted. Unfortunately, the vacation has ended and it’s time to go back to school.

According to recent reports, the domestic commercial passenger flights will resume effective May 25, 2020.  According to the Civil Aviation Minister, Mr. Hardeep Singh Puri’s tweet, he claimed that the domestic flights across India would resume in a “calibrated manner”. The tweet also mentioned “All the airports and air carriers are being informed to be ready for operations from May 25.

The number of migrant laborers crosses a mark of 40 million.
