Partiipation of women in voting for election in 2022 sees a rise.

In comparison to the last assembly elections, women's participation in the electoral process has increased in all five states going to polls — Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa, Punjab, and Manipur — with UP seeing the highest participation of the fair sex at 29 percent, Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra said on Saturday while announcing the poll schedule.

A total of 18.34 crore electors from the five states will participate in the democratic process, with 8.55 crore of them being women. UP is followed by Goa with 24 points, Manipur with 19 points, Uttarakhand with 18 points, and Punjab with 10 points in terms of female involvement.


According to Chandra, Goa had a gender ratio of 1056, Manipur had a ratio of 1065, Punjab had a ratio of 902, Uttarakhand had a ratio of 928, and UP had a ratio of 868.

He claimed that about 13.01 lakh differently abled voters and 31.47 lakh senior persons, most of whom are over 80 years old, will use their right to vote, and that this will motivate the younger generation.

According to the CEC, there are around 5.29 lakh service electors, which include Security Forces posted in far-flung locations, Mission personnel, and others.

In all states, polling hours have been extended by one hour. On January 5, the final election rolls were released. The EC has made an attempt to enhance voter turnout, and as a consequence, all states have experienced an increase in turnout, with Uttar Pradesh having the highest voter turnout.

Because the number of voters per voting booth has been set at 1,250, the number of polling stations has increased to 30,334 as the average number of voters per polling booth has fallen.

'E-Attorney' to help lawyers handle client information and case details easily.

By Ganesh Bhatt
A 10-year-old prodigy from Tamil Nadu's Vellore has created an app called 'E-Attorney' to help lawyers handle client information and case details easily. Through this app, users can sign in and add client documents and store other case related information quickly.
Kanishkar's father, who is also a lawyer, was facing great difficulty in keeping client details organised during the pandemic. Therefore, when the young boy had to choose a course subject for his coding project, he decided to create something that would help his father. Through 'E-Attorney', users can also contact their clients directly and the clients, who are given access to the app by their lawyer, can also easily view their case documents stored in the app.

Not only has the Queen of England long been a visitor to the racing at Ascot but she's also had the honour of having a winner of her own at the meeting.

By- Nanci SEO

Now we're into 2022, the anticipation for a new racing season is hotting up even more.

By the time the world focuses its gaze on Ascot in mid-June, records will have been broken, and new winners will have been celebrated in the other meetings such as the Grand National. However, there's nothing quite like the Royal Ascot meeting and the historic Ascot Gold Cup race, which has been running since 1807. The race is the first leg of the triple crown of thoroughbred racing in the UK, making it one of the most important on the racing calendar.

The meeting is held at the course, which is just 28 miles west of London and only a few miles from the residence of the British Royal Family, Windsor Castle. It's also been an event that the monarchy of Britain has often visited and had a personal interest in. Not only has the Queen of England long been a visitor to the racing at Ascot but she's also had the honour of having a winner of her own at the meeting as noted by Town & Country. Will there be another Royal victory this year? Let's look at some of the favourites for the headline race, the Gold Cup.

Trueshan

The six-year-old gelding's pedigree means he's a real threat to all his other riders at Ascot this year. Trueshan has previous experience of winning the course; he won in 2020 at the British Champions Long Distance Cup, with his jockey Hollie Doyle commenting, 'he went through the ground like a tractor, he loved it.' Going into 2021, he was much fancied after looking strong in the lead up to the meeting but was pulled when his trainer Alan King deemed the ground to be too firm. He had a successful season, winning the Goodwood Cup and the Prix Du Cadran in France in October. So he's in fine fettle going into 2022, does that mean it's finally his year to taste Gold Cup success?
