Delhi blast made impact on minds of Nagpurians!

One day after the serial blast in Delhi,the Nagpurians were scared about the blast.I inspect few people at futala lake nearer to Ambazari who were present for the eve of "Ganesh Visarjan" that they are totally feared about the blast happening all over India.
One 16 year old girl was asking for surety of her life.When I talked to her she was too senti to prevent her tears from eyes.
But,most of them said that they will not stop taking part in their daily routing life.They further told that,they will take part in Ganesh rallies & Visarjan irrespective of bomb blast.Few people were demanding for death penalties to TERRORIST.
I am sure Nagpurians will fought brave with such rubbish things !!!!!

Ten-day Ganesh festival ends on emotional note

All the happy faces, all the rhythmic drum beats, all the merry shouting, and all the bright clothes could not hide the disappointment. Lambodar was leaving, and it would be another year before he would be back. The atmosphere reverberated with the chanting of Ganpati Bappa Morya, Pudhchya Varshi Lavkar Ya at the immersion of Lord Ganesh idols.
Amidst tight security, nearly 800 Sarvajanik Ganesh idols and thousands of household Ganpatis were immersed at lakes in Telangkhedi, Gandhisagar, Sakkardara, Sonegaon, Naik Talao and Koradi till late Sunday night.
Over 2,000 police personnel were deployed along the procession route. Besides this, nearly 500 police mitras were deployed for crowd control at the immersion sites.
Witnessed by a large crowd, most of the processions began from evening and took their traditional routes to the lakes. Various cultural troupes including dhols-tashas performed during the procession. Commissioner of police Pravin Dixit and joint commissioner of police Babasaheb Kangale supervised the security arrangements. Apart from fire brigade personnel, divers were also working on immersion day free of cost.
Incharge chief fire officer Chandrashekhar Jadhav informed TOI that six fire tenders were deployed at various immersion sites. Six fire personnel were deputed with each of them to avoid any untoward incidents like drowning.
Jadhav said firemen with the help of Sonegaon police constable Munindra Iwnate rescued Mohan Chandak (60) from Sonegaon lake on Sunday evening. Similarly, an alert cop of Koradi police station rescued a youth who fell into Koradi lake while immersing Ganesh idol. Jadhav had inspected all the immersion sites per
sonally till late last night.
Interestingly, with a view to help devotees in immersing Ganesh idols, many NGOs arranged immersion vans that parked at various parts of the city. Some NGOs had taken upon themselves to provide for an ecofriendly immersion by asking people to remove the “nirmalya” and disposing it of separately. They had also made arrangement for immersion in smaller tanks so that the water bodies were not polluted.

Khairlanji waits for justice

Almost two years after four members of a Dalit family — a woman and her three children — were killed in the small village of Khairlanji in Bhandara district, irreparably damaging the social fabric of the state, the verdict on the 11 accused is set to be delivered by fast track judge S S Das on Monday at Bhandara.
What may make the judge’s task daunting while deciding the fate of the 11 accused is the relatively weak nature of the evidence available to the prosecution despite all efforts.
