Correcting history or rewriting it?

Places getting renamed is not a new practice in India. We have gotten used to calling Madras ‘Chennai’, Calcutta ‘Kolkata’, Bangalore ‘Bengaluru’, and Bombay, ‘Mumbai’. However, the recent renaming of Faizabad and Allahabad as Ayodhya and Prayagraj, respectively, by the Uttar Pradesh government has created quite a talk and so many trolls were made on the same. The trend of changing the names of key UP districts, towns and railway stations has drawn criticism not just from the opposition, but from the ruling NDA constituent Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party, too. The government had even renamed the Mughalsarai Railway Station, another...

Maasai Mara, A must do

1 Watching shows on Animal Planet, etc are of great interest to me. I felt the shows come to life when I visited Maasai Mara with my parents. Our first sight was of a giraffe at a distance. Twenty minutes on, we saw a herd of Zebras too. It’s great to have a driver as a guide. Ours took us around lesser known trails where we spotted cheetahs and tigers along with their cubs, elephants, lions and groups of monkeys. It was a dream come true, a very lovely sight. 2 The animals move around freely in their natural habitat...

Venezuelan asylum-seekers strengthen Brazil's workforce

The city of Boa Vista in northern Brazil, near the border with Venezuela, was different from what 18-year-old Jefferson* expected after leaving his home country due to the lack of food and job opportunities. Since 2015, 2.3 million people have left Venezuela. Over 150,000 Venezuelans have entered Brazil through the remote northern state of Roraima, and more than 65,000 requested asylum thus far. In Boa Vista there were no stable jobs and the shelter was crowded, Jefferson says. Two months later, thanks to a government-led voluntary relocation programme that operates with the support from UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency and...
