Every year on 15 August, Independence Day is celebrated as a national holiday in India when people remember the long phase of our nation’s independence from British rule. On August 15, 1947, India gained independence after a series of movements in which many freedom fighters sacrificed their lives. After independence, on 15 August 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru became the first Indian Prime Minister to raise the National Flag at the Red Fort near Delhi’s Lahore Gate. 

By unfurling the National Flag and singing the National Anthem, students, teachers, parents, and other individuals come together to celebrate Independence Day. The Indian prime minister in the national capital New Delhi, at Red Fort, also hosts our National Flag. After that, the salute is given by firing 21 guns, and a helicopter showers tricolor flowers on the flag. 

The colors in our flag represent different things; saffron signifies courage and sacrifice, white signifies peace and truth, green signifies faith and chivalry. In the center of our flag, there is an Ashok chakra that contains 24 evenly distributed spikes. We recall the great sacrifices of Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, Raj Guru, Gandhiji, and other daring freedom fighters on this special day for their unforgettable contribution to India’s independence.

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.

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.

An official said that a policeman was also injured in the violence. He said that Superintendent of Police G K Mithun Kumar later visited the Shikaripur town to take stock of the situation, adding that prohibitory orders have been imposed in the area.

Karnataka’s Basavaraj Bommai-led BJP regime has decided to implement the AJ Sadashiva panel commission report on internal reservation among SC’s. Based on the commission’s report, the Bommai government has recommended to the Centre a new breakup of the reservation for Scheduled Castes in education and jobs.

The recommendations suggest that out of the 17 percent reservation for the SC community, 6 percent be earmarked for Scheduled Castes (left), 5.5 percent for Scheduled Castes (right), 4.5 percent for “touchables” and one percent to others.

The Banjara community has demanded the Karnataka government to withdraw the proposed amendments as they would stand to lose out if the recommendations are implemented.

In 2005, then Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) government in Karnataka had set up the AJ Sadashiva Commission to look into the need for sub-classifying Scheduled Caste reservations in the state.
