Times Square at New York

New York City is all set to see the largest post-Covid live event, 'We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert', at the iconic Great Lawn of Central Park. The concert, whose performers' list reads like the who's who of international music, will start at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on Saturday (2:30 a.m. IST on Sunday). It is being reported that an estimated 60,000 people will attend the show, making it most probably the largest post-Covid live concert.


It marks the culmination of the NYC Homecoming Week, a citywide celebration of the Big Apple's recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. The star-studded concert features mega artistes such as rock icons Bruce Springsteen ('The Boss', who's from neighbouring New Jersey) and Eric Clapton, Queens-natives Paul Simon and LL Cool J, and Brooklyn's very own Barry Manilow, Patti Smith and Jennifer Hudson, Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, and 'The Tonight Show' host, Jimmy Fallon, among others.

The concert, which will be broadcast live globally (including in India) by CNN, is being produced by music industry veteran and native New Yorker Clive Davis and Live Nation. All attendees have to show proof of Covid-19 vaccinations to be able to attend the concert.

Swastika, one of the sacred symbols used by many religions like Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism.

The symbol of Swastika is known to signify peace, prosperity, and good fortune in the religious cultures of Eurasia. In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

The reason why the symbol of Swastika is banned in many countries is because of its association with Adolf Hitler's extreme political ideology, Nazism, as Swastika as its official symbol.

India celebrated a historic day on August 7, as 23-year-old Neeraj Chopra became the first Indian to win an Olympic gold medal in athletics. In the men's javelin throw event, he achieved his greatest triumph, throwing the javelin 87.58 meters on his second try.

Neeraj Chopra was born on December 24, 1997, in Khandra village in Haryana's Panipat district. He grew up in a Haryanavi family of farmers. He is the brother of two sisters. He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree. Chopra was bullied due to his obesity as a kid, which prompted his father to enroll him in a nearby gym. He then joined a gym in Panipat, where Jaiveer Choudhary, a javelin thrower, noticed his potential and coached him. When the 13-year-old Chopra finished training under Jaiveer for a year, he was enrolled at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Panchkula, where he began training under coach Naseem Ahmed.
