Voting for Delhi Assembly Elections 2015 concluded today as an unprecedented 67.21 percent voters turned out at the polling booths to elect the new government in the state. Except for few minor incidents, the polling was overall hassle-free. The counting of votes will be done on February 10.

As the voting ended, a number of exit polls came up to project the winning party. Today’s Chanakya, a political research organization that was most accurate in predicting the outcomes in Delhi Assembly polls 2013 and General Elections 2014, has prophesized a clear majority for Aam Aadmi Party. It predicts 42 to 54 seats for AAP, 16 to 28 for BJP, 0 to 2 seats for Congress, and 0 to 2 seats for Others.

Exit polls by ABP-Nielsen, Today-Cicero, IndiaTV-C Voter, etc. also projected a clear majority for Aam Aadmi Party. Taking out an average of such major exit polls, the stats come out as: AAP – 43, BJP – 26, and Cong – 1. Despite the unanimous projections, BJP leaders still seemed to be hopeful of a majority and urged the media to wait till the counting day. On the other hand, Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha expressed utmost disappointment as a party which might indicate an overhaul in its think tank and key positions in coming times.

Meanwhile, AAP’s CM candidate Arvind Kejriwal tweeted later in the evening that the party has ‘deployed volunteers to keep round the clock vigil on the premises housing EVMs.’ It should be noted that he had raised concerns over probability of tampering of the EVMs earlier and was reassured by the ECI.

In three days from now, the mandate of the people of Delhi would decide the destiny of the state and if the Aam Aadmi Party comes to power, the world would be watching over as expectations of good governance and a corruption-free state are set to soar high.

Clinicians must encourage their patients to report any changes to periods or unexpected vaginal bleeding after vaccination.

Some women say they experienced period changes after getting a Covid-19 vaccination. While the reported changes are short-lived, research into this possible adverse reaction remains critical to the success of the vaccination programme, according to an editorial published in The BMJ.

"A link between menstrual changes after Covid-19 vaccination is plausible and should be investigated," wrote Dr Victoria Male, a reproductive specialist at Imperial College London, in the editorial. Reports of menstrual changes after Covid-19 vaccination have been made for both mRNA and adenovirus-vectored vaccines, she added, suggesting that, if there is a connection, it is likely to be a result of the immune response to vaccination, rather than to a specific vaccine component, she said.

Children playing ringa ringa roses in an open backyard in England

Great historic events that have shaped the world and changed the outlines of countries are often not recorded in memory, or so we think. Wars made sure to destroy evidence and heritage, and the ones who survived told the tale of what really happened. Folklore, albeit through oral tradition kept alive many such stories, hidden in verse, limericks, and rhymes.

Ringa-ringa-roses, a common playtime rhyme among children across the world, is an example of folklore that has survived for many centuries. It tells the story of the The Great Plague of London which ravaged the city between 1665-1666.
