A report published in ‘The Times’ has unveiled that a 70-page manual is being circulated online on the jihadist forums, entreating the extremists to draw money by engaging in online scams and frauds.

The guide for preparing, funding and carrying out terror strikes in the West is created by Islamic State (IS). The Times report states that the guide focuses on the formation of sleeper cells of one or two people and also directs the ‘would-be-terrorists’ to modify their names and also asks them to westernize their ways.

The security services worry about how the guide, which is written in flawless English, makes mention of creation and usage of crude weapons, designing homemade bombs and mobile-phone detonators.

A section in the manual coaches the partisans to shun Islamic clothing and to wear colored contact lenses, and to adopt a modern alias, which help in creating an overall distinct appearance.

The manual, which reads, “Befriend good decent white people who are dissatisfied with their governments, be close to them and offer them support and guidance in life. If these people open up to you, you can decide if you want to tell them about Islam. You will tell them enough information to satisfy what service you require off them, but not more than that,” has alarmed the security forces.

One section of the guide commemorates the two brothers, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan, who planted bombs at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, which killed three people and injured over 200 others were injured.

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.

Cubbon Park is a lush green garden at the heart of Bangalore

At the heart of Bangalore city, a large 300-acre space of lush greenery and heritage stands as a symbol of the city's past, present, and future. Cubbon Park is every child's favourite park, every Bangalorean's haven of fresh air, and altogether, the city's pride.

It stands testament to the past, in terms of the diversity of flora it houses. Bangalore traffic in the recent past has grown into a menace, but the stretch between MG Road and Cubbon Park is always a pleasurable place to stop and wait for the signal to turn green. The gust of wind that blows here, and the smell of mud, coupled with floral scents instantly transports citizens to Old Bangalore, where the weather was fine, and the trees loomed over roads with thick canopies that did not even allow rainwater to penetrate. Cubbon Park is also a historical site, and one of the few remaining monuments of colonial heritage in Central Bangalore. It houses many statues and among them, the most famous is that of Queen Victoria, which faces the St. Mark's Square.
