All eyes are now on Parliament, where the government will hold a special session from September 18-22. Now find out, there will be no question time, zero time, or even private member business for five days!
Now the question of greatest concern to parliamentary observers is: Are the five days only devoted to discussing the proposed “One Nation, One Election” bill? Or will the government label this bill a “currency bill” to ensure smooth passage through Parliament? Funny moments, these.
Celebrating 100 years is a significant event for any company’s stakeholders. In response, a shareholder at Karnataka Bank’s 99th Annual General Meeting (AGM) recently made a unique request. The shareholder congratulated the bank on its centenary of service and urged the bank’s management to also arrange some goodies for shareholders through the online food delivery platform.
Such a move would make them happy, the shareholder said. The 99th Annual General Meeting was held by video conference.

Delhi is taking the monkey threat seriously, especially ahead of the G20 summit. Brand new cutouts of langur monkeys have been rolled out in all government offices – especially in central Delhi – and some of them are also reportedly being placed around the G20 meeting grounds.
The central ridge is said to be the natural habitat of the monkeys that roam the streets. Humans have also been hired to mimic the sounds of langur monkeys to scare the primates away.
A senior official noted that the problem remains because the apes are smart enough to tell the difference between a “langur” and a “langur kirigami.” “The cuts don’t smell like langurs. They don’t move like people. So after some initial fear, you’ll see monkeys running around these cuts and even pulling them off.”
