Shasha cheetah

Female cheetah Shasha, who was brought from Namibia to Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh, died due to kidney related issue on Monday. The death of the cheetah was confirmed by the forest officials.

Reports said the Madhya Pradesh forest department had sent an emergency response team to Kuno National Park in Sheopur district when Shasha was diagnosed with a severe medical condition in January. It had symptoms of dehydration and renal disease, as per reports.

Shasha was being treated by a team of veterinarians led by Dr Atul Gupta who is the lead vet at Van Vihar National Park. He was sent to Kuno who then administered fluids to Shasha which improved the big cat’s condition.

Shasha was brought to India among 7 other Namibian cheetahs and was released by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh.

In February, 12 more cheetahs were brought to Madhya Pradesh from South Africa. The relocation of 12 cheetahs from South Africa took place three years after the Centre put forth the idea of the world’s first intercontinental translocation project which aims at reintroducing cheetahs in the country.

Reports said Shasha was recovered from a farm near Gobabis, a town in east-central Namibia. She was malnourished and skinny, however, she was nursed well.

Wayanad seat gone, Rahul Gandhi has a month to move out of Tughlaq Lane house

Gandhi was disqualified from membership of the Lok Sabha two days ago, a day after a Gujarat court held him guilty in a defamation case.



Rahul Gandhi

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has been issued a notice by the Lok Sabha housing panel to vacate the official accommodation allotted to him in Tughlaq Lane which he held as the MP from Wayanad. Gandhi was disqualified from membership of the Lok Sabha two days ago, a day after a Gujarat court held him guilty in a defamation case.

On March 24, 2023, a Surat court had sentenced him to two years jail term for his 2019 campaign speech in which he took Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s name along with IPL founder Lalit Modi and fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi and asked if all Modis are thieves. The court had granted Rahul 30 days to move to a higher court for appeal.

The defamation case against Rahul Gandhi was filed by former Gujarat minister Purnesh Ishvarbhai Modi who alleged that the community had been defamed by the comment.

The Representation of the People Act, 1951’s Section 8 (3) a person convicted of any offence and sentenced to imprisonment for not less than two years shall be disqualified from the date of such conviction and shall continue to be disqualified for a further period of six years since his release.

The Congress is on the warpath with protests being held on Sunday against the move, calling it a satyagraha to pitch it on the Gandhian scale. Today, Congress leaders wore black as part of their protest.

The Opposition had sided with Rahul Gandhi, who now finds himself in another spotlight albeit not of his own making. Gandhi has just wrapped up his Bharat Jodo Yatra from Kanya Kumari to Srinagar, getting strong support across several Lok Sabha constituencies winning which will be key for the Congress to come up as a prime challenger to the BJP.

The Opposition support did not however come unanimously. Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee took her time after the conviction but was prompt in supporting after the Gandhi scion’s disqualification from the Lok Sabha.

International media outlets have reported this series of incidents as the chickens coming home to roost following Rahul Gandhi’s speeches in Cambridge and London on the threats to the country’s democratic institutions.

Gandhi, however, had to listen to strong responses from his Maharashtra ally Uddhav Thackeray for saying he won’t apologise since he was not Savarkar.

As per the new guidelines, guests at the bachelors and spinsters’ house are not allowed to stay overnight in their flats after 10 pm. And if the guest needs to stay overnight then they have to take prior approval from the owner via email. The society is said to be in the Kundanhalli Gate area.

The guidelines have been shared online by a Reddit user.

Here are the rules and regulations for Bachelors living in Banglore’s apartment complex

  • No guests are allowed to Bachelors and Spinster’s flats post 10 pm. Guests are not allowed to stay overnight. If required, prior approval from Owner on email, Manager or Association office to be requested by submitting the guests ID proof and furnishing the stay duration and Guest entry on Mygate.
  • Bachelors and Spinsters are to follow the association rule strictly. No relaxation in case of violation. The penalty of Rs 1,000 or eviction.
  • No loud music after 10 pm.
  • No late-night parties are allowed.
  • Not to use the corridors and balconies for phone calls post 10 pm.

According to one of the users in the comment section, this society is in Marathalli. Since being shared, the rules are being slammed online with many users expressing their displeasure.

One of the users commented, It’s worse than hostels. You’re paying money to rent out a flat. It’s your flat for the duration that you’re renting as per the rantal agreements. Who’ll come to your flat and what you’ll do in the balcony is purely dependent on you. Society rules are becoming rediculous these days it seems.

Another wrote, Nonsense, you live by your rules not owner since you actually own the place for the time you are there. Yes loud parties can be avoided, but rest is none of anyone else’s business.
