Union Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday announced that Indian Railways will soon set up a station in Arunachal Pradesh near the India-China border.

“A draft of the MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) is ready and will be signed soon,” said the Defense Minister. He also added that he has spoken about the project to railway minister Suresh Prabhu.

The minister added, “The ‘gravity’ of the border issue between China and India has come down as far as Arunachal Pradesh is concerned.”

According to a report by State run China Daily, lately China has been planning to build a subway under Mount Everest named Qomolangma in Tibetan to extend its rail connection to Nepal which has sent alarm bells ringing in India.

This will be a very first time when a subway will be made to reach Nepal.

Instagram on Thursday announced to expand its Private Like Counts test globally, including in India.

In the test, you can still see your likes by tapping on the liker list, but others will not be able to see how many likes your post has received.

Likewise, you will not be able to see how many likes others’ posts have received.

Vishal Shah, Vice President of Product, Instagram, said that if you’re in the test, you’ll no longer see the total number of likes and views on photos and videos posted to Feed unless they’re your own.

“While the feedback from early testing has been positive, this is a fundamental change to Instagram, so we’re continuing our test to learn more from our global community,” Shah said in a statement.

The test began in Canada in May 2019 and expanded to Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Brazil, Ireland and Italy in July this year.
