New Delhi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday called for a “working arrangement” with Prime Minister Narendra Modi as both lived in the same city.

“I accept the AAP government has major differences with the central government but there must be some working arrangement between the PM and the CM,” Kejriwal said in his first Independence Day speech as the chief minister at the packed Chhatrasal Stadium.
Kejriwal continued to speak even as heavy rains lashed the venue, where hundreds of people from students to government officers had gathered to hear him.
“As both the chief minister of Delhi and the prime minister of the country live in the national capital, there should be a working arrangement between them for the welfare of the city and the people residing here,” the Aam Aadmi Party leader said.
This is why, he said, he tried to meet Modi but failed. “I tried to meet the prime minister over the issue but could not meet. I will again try to meet him.”
Major differences have cropped up between the Delhi and the central governments since Kejriwal took power. Because of Delhi’s unique status, the city government enjoys limited powers.
This has turned into a bone of contention between the Delhi government and Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung, a central government appointee. Delhi Police reports to Jung, not to Kejriwal.


Kejriwal used the occasion to pay homage to those who laid down their lives for the country’s freedom.He said transparent and honest politics would be the best way to honour the martyrs.

“They made the supreme sacrifice by laying their lives for the nation. Was their dream of free India accomplished? India has progressed but the dreams of our freedom fighters and martyrs are yet to be fulfilled. For this we need transparent and honest politics.
“We were the first who came with the honest and transparent politics. So we got such a huge mandate,” he said, referring to the sweeping victory of the AAP in the February assembly election. “We connected the politics with patriotism.”

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.
