In an attempt to dive deeper into streaming original video content, Apple announced it has given a multi-series order to non-profit organisation named “Sesame Workshop” to create content, especially for children.

The announcement comes as a part of the iPhone-maker’s partnerships and show unveilings ranging from a reboot of Steven Spielberg’s “Amazing Stories” to a wide-ranging deal with Oprah Winfrey.

“‘Sesame Workshop’ will draw on their 50 years of expertise creating children’s programming to produce live action and animated series and to develop a puppet series,” CNET quoted Apple as saying late on Wednesday.

However, as per the report, “Sesame Street” is not part of Apple’s deal with “Sesame Workshop” which will otherwise offer a wide range of programming for all ages.

7th of December 1949, the Armed Force Flag Day

Since the 7th of December 1949, the Armed Forces Flag Day has been observed in India, annually. This one day is dedicated towards collection of funds from the citizens of India for the welfare of the ‘Indian Armed Forces personnel’. It has become a tradition to pay respect to the people who have served in the army, Navy and Airforce, on this day.

“The idea behind observing a Flag Day was to distribute small flags to the general population and in return collect donations.” The color-scheme of the flag is very similar to the ones used by fellow Commonwealth members like Cyprus, Kenya and Nigeria. The Flag Day signifies that it is the responsibility of the citizens of India to take care of the families and dependents of the armed forces personnel who fight for the country.
