New Delhi: The Start-Up India program has broken the belief that start-ups are only related to IT, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday.

Delivering his “Mann Ki Baat” radio address, Modi said Information Technology was only a small part of start-ups.


“It is the common thought that start-up means a sophisticated business related to IT. This illusion has been broken after this event on start up,” Modi said, referring to ‘Start-Up India’.

Mentioning some non-IT start-ups, the Prime Minister referred to two IIM graduates in Sikkim who were selling herbal and organic products along with others.

The ‘Start-Up India Action Plan’ was unveiled by Modi at an event on January 16 and provides a three-year tax holiday.

Modi also lauded efforts by citizens across the country to beautify railway stations.

“I am seeing that these days, at several railway stations, local citizens, artists and students are beautifying their railway stations.

“This is neither a railway initiative nor a Narendra Modi initiative… It is an initiative of the citizens,” he said and urged people to send pictures of beautified railway stations.

He also talked about upcoming school board exams and urged students to share their lessons learnt from family, teachers and seniors on dealing with exam related stress.(IANS)

Fortnite users look forward to new features

By Steve Carty

As we all know, Fortnite has been a very popular battle royale game for a very long time and this is only because of its building aspect. People only try or play this game because of the building aspect. No game has ever had this feature where you could build fight your opponent for high ground and all. It's crazy how they even thought of this. Fortnite has been around for many years now. There used to be a different map in Chapter 1. People were really mad when Fortnite changed the map. People had a sentimental feeling towards that map and thousands of players stopped playing the game and switched to Apex Legends.

Fortnite has a huge map with different pinned locations in it. It's a game that you can't master in a week or two. It can take months or even years depending on how much you practice. People spend hours in creative just to learn a new technique with the building. Some people have been playing since the launch of Fortnite and are still bad at the game. Yes! It's possible to be bad even after you practice a lot. I'd suggest you spend a lot of time in creative and just free build there to get good at it. Once you've mastered the art of building, you'll be good to go and can outbuild anyone for high ground. There is another thing called editing in this game. People use the latest working Fortnite hacks for this where it edits in 0.1 seconds. People won't even see you editing this and this will make you a step ahead of them and due to that, you can easily kill them before they even notice.

People stroll early morning at the Mumbai promenade.

Prior to the brutal second wave of the pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had cautioned civil services probationers against developing the despised "babu mindset". He gave the invaluable piece of advice while addressing civil services probies at the well-known Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie via video-conferencing. He also outlined the keystone mantra of "minimum government and maximum governance".

With the recent collapse of the under-construction flyover in Bandra Kurla Complex which injured 14 labourers, it seems like the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has got the PM's keystone mantra all wrong. The recent flyover collapse isn't an isolated incident, in fact, a month ago a similarly bemusing incident took place in the eastern part of the suburbs.
