  1. They say free goodies always taste better than the stuff we have to pay for. That isn't always true, though. When life gives us lemons, no matter how costless they might be, the lemonade still tastes like shit. So, earlier today when the Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) Chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that women in the national capital will be 'entitled' to free rides on Delhi Metro, DTC and cluster buses, the announcement left a sour taste in our mouth (pun intended). A large number of female commuters who use public transportation on a regular basis are thrilled by this news, while others are also concerned about the chaos this would unleash, with problems stemming from overcrowding and people management on buses and metros. © Twitter However, that being said, at first glance, it does seem like a great move to encourage more women to use public transportation, but we fail to fathom how this is going to better the pressing issues related to women's safety in the state? Giving every woman free access to metro and buses in no way helps ensure that women will really be safe from abuse, molestation or rape. In fact, it only makes them more vulnerable to other kinds of inconvenience such as theft and difficulties that arise from overcrowding. Women might still get stalked, cat-called and assaulted once they get off the metro and buses, so, sorry, but Kejriwal's reasoning behind this 'free ride' move does nothing to endure women's safety. © Twitter Yet, the major question still remains: Are 'special' privileges the only way of ensuring women's safety? “I remember when the women's compartment was introduced on metros, men seem to hate the special treatment women received, and have often lashed out at women who travel in the general compartments 'despite having an entire compartment to themselves'. Thanks, but we can pay for our rides, spare us the chaos,” says 28-year-old Dutee. The overarching sentiment shared by women who can afford to pay for the tickets is that this step is unnecessary for a number of reasons. However, for those who may not be as privileged, this surely comes as a great relief and there is no denying that fact. Regardless of the money in their pockets, women will now be able to get from one place to another without being bothered by the monetary aspects (especially in times of dire need). Now women can travel free of cost in Delhi metro and DTC bus...there was already reserved seats everywhere for women....I don't understand what kind of equality is this between men and women?..Then why everyone said that लडà¤à¤¾ लडà¤à¥ à¤à¤ समान?? — pranav sangal (@pranavsangal4) June 3, 2019 34-year-old Neetu, who works as a house help in South Delhi, wasn't even aware that something of the sort is in the pipeline for Delhi women. But once she was informed, she was beyond relieved and said, “I avoid taking the metro unless I really have to, and the same goes for AC buses. But if this new rule really comes to pass, I won't have to think twice before taking them when I am travelling long distances within the city. It would make life so easy. I hope they can make it happen.” These are two diverse sets of female commuters who hit the roads every day and have different standpoints on Kejriwal's proposal, which will reportedly take another three months to get implemented. While there are genuine pros and cons to this proposal presented by the AAP government, there is no denying that another segment of women are still questioning why women 'always' have to be given special benefits for their “safety”, which again takes away from the larger movement towards equality. © Twitter “This will set back womenfolk and the feminist movement in the country yet again. We need better and stronger ways of safeguarding women's security. Special incentives do nothing more than make men loathe women for “all the things they get easily” and “get away with” simply because they belong to a particular gender,” observes Snigdha, a college student who regularly uses public transport. On certain levels, this somehow also reeks of vote-bank politics by the AAP government. After failing to bag even a single Lok Sabha seat in the recently concluded elections, this almost seems like a desperate move by the Kejriwal government to get into the good books of the female population in Delhi. What for? Are we Delhi Women not considered capable enough to pay for tickets? Is this empowerment in your understanding??! Delhi Metro, bus rides likely to be free of cost for women - India News https://t.co/cdAX2YVXlu — Pragya Rathore (@pragsrats) June 2, 2019 We certainly wish the Kejriwal government could come out with more concrete ways to deal with the vital issue of women's safety in the city. While this might help to a certain extent, the impending chaos is almost palpable. We wonder if this move to warm up to women in the region will help AAP in salvaging its sorry state of affairs, ahead of the State Assembly Elections in 2020.
  2. How often do you witness road safety hazards around you and do something about it in order to save lives? It could be asking someone to buckle up and wear their seat belt or their helmets, or forewarning someone about a dupatta that can create a mighty accident or even ask someone to slow down because they're going way beyond their speed limit. Whatever it is, road safety is a growing concern in most cities in India and it needs to be tackled immediately. © Instagram/Thrikkannan In India, more than 150,000 people are killed in road accidents each year and most of the cases are due to their own callousness. Either they are negligent while driving, or are doing something they're definitely not supposed to be doing, while they lose their lives. Fortunately, a young boy from Kerala understood the purpose and the volatility of this situation and decided to do something bigger and better to spread awareness about road safety in his state first, through photographs. Yes, you read that right. A 19-year-old photographer from Kerala has taken upon himself to spread awareness of how gruesome road accidents can be, through his photographs and people are actually taking adequate caution, thanks to him. © Instagram/Thrikkannan Hafiz Sanjeev, a student pursuing VFX and animation at an animation and visual effects institute in Kochi loves photography and has decided to use it as a means to create social awareness. We may hear and see a thousand campaigns on social awareness but if they do not impact us, we will seldom do much about them. Except of course if a visual medium is used creatively to determine a particular idea, we will pay attention to it, more than anything else, because we are visual beings and that's what Hafiz believes in as well.

"Since childhood, I used to love capturing photos on my mobile phone. From class 10th, I started borrowing my friend's camera for photography... But after 12th my dream came true…my Pappa bought me my first camera. Now I'm 19 and I create frames from my point of view. I started observing small things happening in our daily life, that are simply ignored by people. I decided to capture those moments and show people how much that impact our daily life.

"According to the last year survey, there were around 40,000+ accidents and 4000+ deaths reported. This is the reason why I came up with this “road safety” campaign. When I was travelling on a bike with my friend, I met with a car accident, the driver opened the door carelessly. That day, I understood how necessary it is to make others aware about road safety " © Instagram/Thrikkannan He created an Instagram account with a catchy username 'Thrikkannan', meaning 'the third eye man', which was suggested to him by his girlfriend. Through this account, Hafiz shared his work on this campaign. "A flying dupatta is a 'small thing', but this very 'thing' has the potential of taking not just one life, but also many in the resultant accident. Another common practice that I'd observed was how people who'd parked their cars on the wrong side would open their doors with little regard to the flowing traffic behind them. Not only are they endangering their own lives, but their actions could also prove detrimental to the innocent riders". © Instagram/Thrikkannan The two people he worked closely with to give this campaign its meaning was his friend Anas, an aspiring actor and his sister Hasna who also loves to act. The pictures bring out an important emotional element, to depict how crucial and impactful this campaign really is and every little detail counts in order to practice safe measures. "My favourite photograph from this campaign is "scarf accident” because we invested a lot of efforts and hard work on it and the feedbacks were satisfying to". © Instagram/Thrikkannan Hafiz's campaign hit a popularity mark when it reached Instagram. Obviously, people loved the way he emoted topics of grave significance through emotionally portrayed photographs, that do make a difference. Hafiz plans to continue doing such socially relevant campaigns through photography, while pursuing his degree. Honestly, we need more kids like Hafiz who understand the relevance of the time we're living in and do something through creative means to make a significant difference in society. Here's wishing we see more such campaigns form this 19-year-old genius! Follow him on Instagram here
  3. In what was arguably one of the greatest comebacks in the history of the tournament, a spirited Liverpool brigade outclassed famed Barcelona with a 4-3 (on aggregate) win in the UEFA Champions League semifinals and romped their way into the final. Trailing 0-3 from the first leg, Jurgen Klopp's men scored four goals to shut all the naysayers and lived up to their ever-improving reputation as one of the best teams in club football. On a night, where the famed trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho failed to breach Liverpool's defence, the home side were aided for their persistent hard work through strikes from Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum who scored two goals apiece. If overturning the improbable 0-3 deficit from the first leg wasn't enough, the fact that Liverpool pulled it off despite notable absences of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, further earned them plaudits from all over the globe. © Reuters But, their sensational triumph wasn't the only thing that caught everyone's attention. In fact, one of the goals scored by Liverpool appears to have become a vital example for Mumbai Police to promote their road safety campaign amongst citizens. Having equalled the scoreline to 3-3 (on aggregate), the Reds punished Barcelona for their casual attitude in the 79th minute. Taking a corner kick, Trent Alexander-Arnold's clever thinking saw him quickly thumping the ball into the box before Origi smashed it past Marc-Andre Ter Stegen to pull off what eventually proved to be the winner. Be it the road to a final, or way back home - being distracted cost dear even to the mightiest. It can cost you dearly too. #SafetyGoals #LIVBAR pic.twitter.com/MizDdxNhSr — Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) May 8, 2019 Mumbai Police, taking note of Arnold's clever goal that caught the Barcelona defence napping, used it in their post to create awareness. Taking to Twitter, Mumbai Police shared the video of the decisive goal and captioned it: "Be it the road to a final, or way back home - being distracted cost dear even to the mightiest. It can cost you dearly too. #SafetyGoals #LIVBAR". Their tweet might irk Barcelona fans, but it surely struck a chord with football enthusiasts in India.

  4. A Boeing 737 MAX 8 operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed just a few minutes after take-off on Sunday, killing all 157 onboard. Just five months back, another 737 MAX 8 aircraft operated by Lion Air crashed off the shore of Java and all 189 onboard lost their lives. Two crashes of the same jetliner within a span of five months has shocked everyone and the Ethiopian Airlines immediately grounded their MAX 8 fleet. This was soon followed by China declaring a complete ban on the aircraft in its air space. Britain, France and Germany joined a growing list of countries to ban 737 MAX planes from their airspace as airlines around the world grounded the jets. © Utkarsh Thakkar / @vimanspotter India's DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) has finally decided to ground the aircraft as well. The Ministry of Civil Aviation said the planes will be grounded till appropriate modifications and safety measures are undertaken to ensure safe operations. Spicejet operates 13 MAX 8's and has 200 of them on order. Yesterday, the airline defended the plane saying "The Boeing 737 MAX is a highly sophisticated aircraft". It further added, "It has flown hundreds of thousands of hours globally and some of the world's largest airlines are flying this aircraft." © Wikimedia Even Jet Airways has 5 of them in fleet currently, but they have been grounded for weeks since the airline is undergoing payment issues with lessors. We expect Spicejet flights to be affected massively in the coming days since the MAX 8 contributes heavily to their network. It's evident the local regulator came under immense scrutiny from the press and aviation experts after it released a statement yesterday that didn't warrant an immediate ban on the plane. In fact, the DGCA asked airlines to roster pilots with more than 1,000 hours of flying experience for the MAX 8. In comparison, the Ethiopian Airlines pilot had more than 8,000 hours of flying on record. © Reuters Flying the MAX 8 isn't about crew expertise and preliminary reports from the Lion Air crash have suggested a major software design flaw on Boeing's end. It is too early to say whether the two crashes are related, but we also cannot ignore the fact that the plane could have a serious design flaw. Boeing said it understood the countries' actions but retained "full confidence" in the 737 MAX and had safety as its priority. The MAX series is its fastest-selling family of planes, with more than 5,000 orders placed to date from about 100 customers. © Utkarsh Thakkar / @vimanspotter (Boeing 737-800 NG) Please keep in mind, the affected plane is Boeing 737 MAX 8 and is different from 737 NG Family (737-700/800/900). The latter has been flying for more than two decades and has a spotless track record. The 737-800 is the primary workhorse of Jet Airways and Spicejet in India.
  5. Ethiopian Airlines flight ET302 crashed soon after taking off on Sunday morning from Addis Ababa killing 157 people onboard. The plane was enroute Nairobi, Kenya and last contact was six minutes after take-off. The flight was operated by a Boeing 737 MAX 8 and the aircraft was delivered to the airline just a few months ago. Aviation is considered to be among the safest industries for decades and the crash of a brand new jet is alarming. Just five months back, another 737 MAX 8 operating for Lion Air crashed into the sea off the island of Java shortly after take-off, killing all 189 people onboard. Two crashes of the same jet within a short span has gotten everyone worried and Boeing, along with local regulators are scrambling to find answers. © Reuters Boeing's safety record is now under serious threat and with hundreds of MAX 8's flying all over the globe, airlines aren't keen on operating them until proper investigations are completed. The circumstances of the two crashes remain under investigation, and Boeing has presented no evidence to suggest the two disasters are linked. The similarities may be a coincidence. Ethiopian Airlines has grounded its Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleet until further notice. The airline has a reputation for being one of the best airlines in Africa. It has a good safety record and the newest fleet of planes on the continent. © Utkarsh Thakkar / @vimanspotter (Ethiopian Airlines A350 in Mumbai) In India, Jet Airways and Spicejet operate the MAX 8 and Spicejet is operating them normally (13 in fleet) based on the schedule. Jet Airways is undergoing a period of financial instability and FlightRadar24 suggests it has temporarily stopped operating them (5 in fleet) for weeks due to payment issues with lessors. The narrow-body Boeing 737 has been a workhorse on short- and medium-haul flights for decades. Thousands of 737 NG (737-700/800/900) continue to fly with a spotless track record. The MAX 8 is an improved version with better engines and increased cabin comfort. The planemaker is expected to build 59 MAX 8's every month this year. Jet Airways has ordered 225 of these, followed by Spicejet at 200. © Utkarsh Thakkar / @vimanspotter India's aviation regulator DGCA has sought information from Boeing after the Sunday crash. "A Boeing 737 Max aircraft flown by Ethiopian Airlines has crashed. Our two airlines (Jet Airways and SpiceJet having these aircraft) and DGCA officials are in touch with Boeing for information. Further safety measures shall follow that," DGCA chief B S Bhullar, told the Times of India. China's civil aviation regulator has ordered all Chinese airlines to suspend commercial operations of MAX 8. Chinese airlines currently operate 96 MAX 8's. No other country has grounded the aircraft completely yet, but airlines say they are closely working with Boeing and monitoring their fleet.
  6. Indian men have gone through layers of conditioning before they finally fell into a layer that made them the men they are today. As vague as that statement sounds, it holds true for an India post the #MeToo movement. Every man I meet nowadays is either talking about how to respect women better or be their 'knight in shining armour'. Truth be told, women don't really need a knight in shining armour as much as they need equality from their men. Be it their partners, they're subordinates, they're mentors, teachers, colleagues, or even their boss, women seek equality in terms of varying thought processes and of course actions. (c)Twitter While delving further into this, I came across research hosted by a popular dating app called OkCupid, talking about how men have evolved in the way they submit to their thoughts and actions in society and how perspectives have truly changed where they're concerned. The research throws light on a gentle evolution of how, post the #MeToo movement, men have a fair insight into a woman's perpetual struggle in society and helping them link ties and making things equal is something they're honouring more and more every day. Here are 3 things that have evolved for men post the #MeToo movement and we hope this Women's Day, all women realise they're not alone: (1) A Blunt Understanding Of Feminism There are, and there always will be a few men, who either don't care about feminism, are indifferent towards it, or who completely disagree with it. But there are also a lot of them who're changing their perspective on what feminism is essentially and have supported the cause as much as they're supporting the movement. Apart from subjective connotations for feminism, almost 87% of men believe feminism is 'equality between both the genders'. This perspective has helped enhance the solemn trajectory of how women are treated in certain spaces by the male population and it's certainly an improvement. (c)Twitter (2) Being House Husbands & Homemakers A lot of men, about 88% of them, according to research by the app, are offering to share equal responsibilities with the women, around the house. Be it cleaning or cooking or even taking care of the kids, men are more acceptable about changing roles and taking up something more or equally challenging. A lot of men have taken up to being 'house husbands' if their wives are in successful jobs, which demand long hours from them. This phenomenal acceptance in running the household along with the woman is a welcoming change for sure. (c)Eros International (3) Men Stand-Up For Work Place Harassment About 86% of the population is very much against workplace harassment. Since #MeToo had a big part to play in overall sexual harassment, men became more wary and sensitive about it, especially at places where they'd spend the maximum number of hours. A more vigilant and tolerant attitude was donned by most men around harassment in general and if they're the true watchdogs and a beacon of hope for maintaining peace and security, women shouldn't have much to worry about, especially at workplaces. (c)Pintrest These evolving attitude changes donned by most men is a defining strength for our democracy. With about 81% of the men coming forward in support of the #MeToo movement, we've seen the evolutionary balance become a lot steadier and men become a lot more understanding and tolerant. So, if you're a man and you're reading this article, maybe realise that your own brothers around you are wilfully looking for a change and change is happening, according to this research. So, maybe try and partake in this positive change and build a safe, happy and just society, together.
  7. Today Guneet Monga's 'Period. End of Sentence' created history by winning the Best Documentary Short Subject at the Oscars 2019 aka the 91st Academy Awards. The 26-minute documentary is set in Hapur, a village in Uttar Pradesh and deals with the taboo around menstruation and how the women come together to create sanitary pads of their own, when a machine is installed in the village. © sikhya entertainment The whole world is talking about this documentary and so is Mumbai Police, but for a totally different yet equally important cause. Mumbai Police's social media team is known and lauded for coming up with creative and witty messages, on things that are going viral on the internet. This time too they did not disappoint us at all. Mumbai Police referred to the Oscar-winning documentary and wrote, "If cities were given an Oscar, Mumbai would have bagged some of the trophies definitely!"

  8. Whether you favour the clean shaven look, proudly maintain a bushy beard, or sport a facial hair style that falls somewhere in between these two, it's impossible to give up shaving completely, at least not if you want to look well groomed! Although men today gravitate towards the electric trimmer to help 'shave' seconds off their morning shaving ritual as they rush to work, they can't hope to match up to the smooth, close shave that the good old safety razor offers. The O.G. of shaving implements, the safety razor was the first shaving tool curated to reduce the reliance on professional barbers and put the power into your own hands (quite literally!). The origins of the safety razors we know today, i.e., a handle attached at right angles to a head in which a removable blade can be placed, can be traced back to early 19th century. Including a protective layer between the blade edge and the user's skin dramatically reduced the level of skill needed to shave injury-free, adding a 'safety element' to the design. Since then, the safety razor has evolved into a highly specialised piece of shaving tech that provides professional-level shaves right in your own bathroom. So, if you take your appearance seriously, adding the best safety razor to your grooming routine is the smartest decision you can take. And on that note, we've compiled this helpful list of the best options out there, to make your choice a little easier, and your morning shave much smoother (and safer). Does Your Shaving Kit Contain The Best Safety Razor? 1. Vikings Blade The Chieftain Safety Razor © Amazon When you think of Vikings, the image that comes up is of fierce warriors ready for battle, and this safety razor from Vikings Blade arms you for the battle against bad grooming! Made from materials sourced from Sweden, this razor offers a smoother and closer shave than ever before, with no cuts or resistance thanks to their patented micro-comb system. The razor is perfectly weighted, and is hand-crafted from a mix of brass and bronze with a shiny chrome coating. The advanced butterfly head facilitates quick blade changes, so you won't have to waste time pre-shave. The case also comes with a mirror so that you can keep up with your grooming regime on your travels, and also contains five raw, unbranded, unpolished super sharp platinum-coated Swedish steel blades. MRP: Rs. 4,734 Buy It Here 2. Merkur Futur MK-70M Safety Razor © Amazon When it comes to the best safety razor in terms of ease of use, Merkur's Futur MK-70M is tough to beat. While the snap-cap design makes loading blades extremely simple, the blade exposure dial allows you to control the blade gap, which means the blade performs as gently or as aggressively as you please. At 122 grams, it feels nice and solid in your hand, but can still be manoeuvred across the contours of your face with precision. Produced entirely in Solingen, Germany, it offers an amazing shave minus the skin irritation that sometimes accompanies cheap razors and safety razor blades. MRP: Rs. 7, 981 Buy It Here 3. Edwin Jagger Safety Razor © Amazon A great offering from renowned English manufacturers Edwin Jagger, this beauty comprises a two part, die cast and hand polished chrome plated blade head. It's precision engineered to deliver a shaving angle that is gentle on all skin types, which means experienced as well as new shavers can enjoy a smooth, close, comfortable and accurate shave. The handle is triple plated, and the head components are finished with a flawless blue white scratch resistant chrome plating. The handle is capped with chrome plated end cap detailing, and the Edwin Jagger name is embossed into the chrome plated collar, so you know you're getting a quality item. You get five free Derby double edge safety razor blades with each purchase, which means your blades will match up in quality and performance with your razor. MRP: Rs. 4,383 Buy It Here 4. Muhle R41 Safety Razor © Amazon With a stunning chrome finish, this offering from Muhle is a double edge safety razor that definitely makes a visual impact. Its performance is just as impactful as its looks - the razorhead, with open tooth comb, was specially developed keeping practised wet shavers in mind. The special blade angle allows a direct, vigorous shaving technique without risk of cuts.

  10. Remember that Disaster Management class you had back in school? If you didn't pay attention to all those safety tips and all the other important stuff, then it really sucks, because they can actually save your life and the lives of so many others in an emergency. Case in point- Zen Sadavarte, a 10-year-old who single-handedly stopped the death toll of a fire from reaching double digits. A massive fire broke out at a residential building, Crystal Tower, near Hindmata Cinema in Parel in Mumbai yesterday, claiming the lives of four people and injuring several others. Any person would have started panicking in such a situation, but this brave little girl used her presence of mind to save the lives of her family and her neighbours. After a huge fire broke out in Mumbai's #CrystalTower building, 12-year-old Zen Sadavarte showed great presence of mind and employed basic #FireSafety tips she had learnt in school and ensured the safety of her family. Real #DisasterManagement pic.twitter.com/NqS2foUA3K — Aniruddha's ADM (@aniruddhasadm) August 23, 2018 As soon as she realized that there was a fire in her building, she remained calm and informed her family and neighbours. Moreover, she made a make-shift purifier for everyone out of cloth and water, so that no one would suffocate from the smoke. Zen Gunratan Sadavarte, a 10-year-old girl helped in evacuation operation during the fire that broke out in Mumbai's Crystal Tower, today, says. 'I convinced people to put wet cloth on their face so that they do not suffocate. I had done a research on this.' #Maharashtra pic.twitter.com/9Gk7vgDao2 — ANI (@ANI) August 22, 2018 Now, that's so simple yet genius. Everyone in that situation should be able to do that but most would panic and run out, hoping for the best. This way, people can breathe while escaping to safety. Zen said, “I had learned this technique while researching for my Class 3 project for Disaster Management. I had also learnt during the project that in such scenarios one should not panic. I told everyone exactly the same. Later, I asked them to wet a cloth and cover their face and breathe through it." This is Zen Sadavarte, a ten-year-old girl who just saved 16 people's lives in a Mumbai building fire. She opened all the windows and knocked on neighbors' doors as soon as she saw the fire, and fashioned air purifiers out of cotton and water for each person present. #pics pic.twitter.com/svSvHFMQly — The Best Pictures (@BeautifuImages) August 23, 2018 It is being said that her technique helped in saving the lives of at least 16 people and if you don't think that's truly incredible, then something's wrong with you. People are applauding her, and rightly so. Zen Sadavarte: true hero! This 10 year old girl is a hero. She saved 14 lives from the fire that occurred in her building yesterday. Kept her cool and guided them to safety. She executed the safety drills she had read about ðð»ðð» — Aaditya Thackeray (@AUThackeray) August 23, 2018 Children like this make our country proud. This incident exemplifies the importance of quality real-life lessons in education. All the best dear Zen Sadavarte.https://t.co/1uphxQj5mf — H D Devegowda (@H_D_Devegowda) August 23, 2018 Proud of kids like”Zen Sadavarte”,who saved 15people from fire wid her presence of mind & learning from https://t.co/XA1ImtNkwK shows,school learning needs to be way beyond just,text books.#Mumbaihighrisefire @narendramodi @HRDMinistry @Nishara08793648 pic.twitter.com/c48UBgFwZq — Swati Agrawal Singh (@swatiagrwlsingh) August 23, 2018 The fruits of education are not the top rankers but the children like Zen Sadavarte who applied her knowledge to save lives. — Raviteja (@ravitejarules01) August 23, 2018 "Sometimes superheroes reside in the heart's of small children fighting big battles" Age is just a number when confidence is higher & intention is noble.Zen Sadavarte has proved it correct by saving lives of 16 people.A big Salute.@narendramodi @Manekagandhibjp @MrsGandhi pic.twitter.com/rtmEDHivc4 — Kasturi Mishra (@mishra_kasturi) August 23, 2018 Kudos to 10-year-old Zen Sadavarte who showed her presence of mind by employing safety tips she had learnt at school to ensure that her family and neighbours remained safe during the fire that broke out in #Mumbai's #CrystalTower. She deserves much applause.#MumbaiFireTragedy https://t.co/FSh8SvnSFx — Ashok Gehlot (@ashokgehlot51) August 22, 2018 Time to brush up on some Disaster Management techniques?
