Hanuman Ji

March 10, 2017: Donald’s Trump visa reform bill has prompted Indians to pay regular visits to Hanumanji. The famous Hanuman mandir is situated at Connaught Place, which has been brimming with devotees from past few days. These devotees are none other than candidates who have applied for US visa and awaiting an affirmative response.

The temple’s priest indicated that the temple has beheld 95% increase in the number of people who turned up to visit Hanumanji with their janampatri to know about their videsh yatra yog. Not only this temple, but another temple branded as ‘Chanmatkari Visa wale Hanumanji ka mandir’ is popular among folks. The avid reasons as for why people are succumbing to Lord Hanumanji is due to the reason he being called ‘Pawan Putra’ – who needs no baggage to fly across the world. To remind a simple fact, he flew all the way to Rawan’s Lanka without any trepidations or any equipment.

“Hamare paas log janampatri laate hain, aur poochte hain ki videsh jana hoga ya nahin. Agar yog hota hai toh hum disha batate hain, aur kaafi log batate hain ki unhe America jaana hai. Kuch log upaay bhi poochte hain. Kuch log joh videsh mein hai, woh phone karke poochte hain ki wahan reh payenge ya nahin, visa renewal hoga ya nahin.” tells VN Tiwari one of the priests at the CP temple to TOI.

The visa reform bill if passed will make it tough for American IT companies to hire Indian worker and might smash American Native dream for many Indians. In such an adverse situation, inducing deity seems to the most appropriate decision. The problem is not only rooted for those waiting for their US clearance but also those who are residing in the US and anticipating for their visa renewal.

The trend is that the visitors have to write an application (arzi) in English to the deity with red ink, along with the token money. The visitors are then advised to recite the prayers till their wishes come true. It has been noted that the temple receives 20 applications and almost every second application is by someone waiting for their US visa.

Once the wish is granted, they have to return with offerings of laddoos and banana along with a ‘Thank you’ note. The visitors are not just IT sectors employees but also the students and their parents waiting to unlock their fortune

On Monday, conglomerate Tata Group entered into a share purchase agreement with the Central government for buying out the latter's stake in national carrier Air India, Air India Express, and AISATS.

Sports betting has become increasingly popular among the youth in recent times

Sports betting has been around for centuries for the audience to not only watch the sport but to get more deeply involved in the match. It is a fun and often profitable activity for the viewer to win some extra fortune or simply get some extra sweat while watching the game. At first glance, sports betting may look like it's pure luck, but when you indulge deeper into the activity you realize it is more of a calculative and research activity than just pure luck. We must note that yes, luck does play a certain role to some extend but a win is not completely dependent on luck, if you're putting your bets on a certain team you have to make sure to do some research about the players on the team, history of wins and losses of the team and compare the probability of winning and then place bets.

Even though sports betting has existed since the ancient era, it was not until recently that it became increasingly popular among the youth. This happened due to the legalization of the activity and the rise of online sports betting. The technological revolution has expanded the sports betting industry, offering the bettors new markets and ways to bet. The only major difference between online bookmarkers and traditional brick-and-mortar venues of sports betting is that now you can place bets online from your mobile devices, laptops, computers etc.
