Kolkata: On the auspicious day of Raksha Bandhan, the members of Any Body Can Donate (ABCD) celebrated the festival with some street children of Rashbihari areas in South Kolkata.

The program was attended by some fifty odd street children of the area, and they kept the crowd entertained with their performance.

The members felicitated the children with some gifts and they announced scholarship for three children. The organizations will take the full responsibility of their education with continuing to give free tuitions to these children.

In an interaction with NewsGram, the founder of ABCD, Atanu Acharya, said: “In India every year thousands of children are dying for hunger and the government becomes reluctant to look after these small children. So the organization is determined to help this neglected class of the society and in the future we have a motto to reach to every areas of India”.


The UK government on Thursday announced that it will move India from the red to the amber list on Sunday, in the country's latest update to the 'Red-Amber-Green' traffic light ratings for arrivals into England amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

This means the visit visas for the UK from India are open, in addition to other long-term visas that have remained open. But travellers from India arriving in England can complete a 10-day quarantine at home or in the place they are staying (not mandatorily quarantine in a managed hotel).

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
