LET’S START
Taiwan Sushiro is a sushi restaurant in Taiwan. It was recently in
news for a weird promotional campaign. The temporary promotional
deal offered free all-you-can-eat sushi to the eligible customer and
upto five friends. The promotion prompted an unexpected craze that
was dubbed "salmon chaos" on social media and by local news
outlets. However, the Taiwanese government was seemingly
unamused, and even ministers urged people to stop wasting officials'
time.
Rarely anyone would have been eligible for the promotional deal
but the attraction of it prompted people to become eligible resulting
in chaos for government officials.
What were people doing to become eligible?

This controversial personality wasn’t universally condemned. House
of Lords passed a motion in his support. Morning Post raised a sum
for him. Rudyard Kipling was a famous contributor to that fund.
Strangely enough, the clergy of Golden Temple led by Arur Singh
declared him a Sikh to honour him. One of the reason for this honour
was the demand for reforming the management of Sikh shrines
which later culminated into Gurudwara Reform Movement.

This practice has its origin in Israeli agriculture techniques and has an
Old Testament reference which says that Jews from Israel must take
a year-long break from working the fields every seven years.
Over the years, this term has come to mean an extended absence in
the career of an individual to fulfill some goal, e.g., writing a book or
travelling extensively for research. They were originally only offered
to academics and clerics but are now being increasingly offered by
companies around the world. In this, the employee still remains a
part of the organization unlike other career break options.

In 1989, Gunter Schabowski, a spokesperson was handed an
announcement about relaxed travel regulations. In his lack of
preparation, he mistakenly told that the checkpoints are open
whereas the original message was regarding relaxed travel

region raising popular expectations much more rapidly than the
government planned. The chain reaction that erupted didn’t gave a
scope for correction.
What followed as a result of it?

Fall of the Berlin Wall

There have been speculations regarding this ‘mystical’ character
from a popular 2020 web series. The inspiration behind this
character was himself involved in multiple controversial roles during
his lifetime. In his peak, he was known in India as a big-time power
broker, who could decide Cabinet positions, clinch business deals, do
transfers etc. He is said to have dispensed advice to the Sultan of
Brunei, British PM Margaret Thatcher, arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi,
crime lord Dawood Ibrahim etc.

optical illusion in 1824, which is often regarded as the origin of the
persistence of vision theory (basis for animation).
But his most significant contribution was away from the field of
science. Even though he was not the first to do this, his 1852 work
Roget’s ___________ was the most popular version of it. It has now

Otto von Bismarck, was a conservative German statesman who
masterminded the unification of Germany in 1871 and served as its
first chancellor until 1890. But this was not his only feat. In
December 1884, Otto von Bismarck, Chancellor of the German
Empire, introduced the first large-scale compulsory insurance to
establish ___________. For the first time in history, all blue-collar
workers were covered by an insurance that provided all the perks
that were associated with it. The scheme served as a blueprint for
others. Even today, Bismarck’s model is pioneer towards this aspect.
But despite of all the glories associated with this it was still heavily
criticised and was not a big success.
What model am I talking about ?
17
Bismarck’s Universal Health Care model

We are all aware about some of the bizarre rules of communist
regime in China, but this one is on another tangent. Popular
children’s cartoon character X has been blocked from an online video
channel in China after becoming associated with a “gangster”
subculture. The search term #X was removed from video app Douyin
(Tik Tok), making as many as 30,000 videos of the cartoon
unreachable. The justification which was given to do this action was
that it holds “anti-establishment views” and “gangster” attitudes.

X is a blockchain-based social network, which lets users speculate
on the social clout of personalities such as Indian Prime Minister
Narendra Modi, Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder Elon Musk, and
popstar Rihanna using a cryptocurrency of the same name. X wants
to work as a stock market in which, instead of companies, people
invest in the reputations of individuals. The price of a creator’s coin
depends on their ability to create value for their investors through
their posts, other content, or actions in the real world. Consumers
and fans can in turn speculate on the price of these digital assets.

This case as it is known, occupies a certain standing in the history of
Indian legislation. It is one of the oldest cases in the country which started
in 1870s and though a verdict was delivered in 1981, it was never
implemented. At the heart of the issue are nine plots in _______________
which Shias claim as theirs, given to them by the Maharaja of Varanasi for
holding religious discourses and recitations during Muharram while
Sunnis claim that part of the area was their graveyard. There is
permanent police presence in the area, which gets intensified during
Muharram. In 1981, the Supreme Court too upheld the rights of Shias.
The two graves, it was later ordered, were to be shifted with boundary
walls constructed around the contested plots. In 1986, the state
administration cited fear of sectarian conflict and the court put its own
order in abeyance for the next decade, calling for a peaceful resolution.
It’s been 2020 and there’s still no resolution. What case am I talking
about?

The Doshipura graveyard case

It was during their collaboration on 1983’s “Say Say Say” that former
Z, Y is said to have advised King of Pop X to invest some of his
enormous wealth in music publishing. It was sound financial advice
that Y may have come to regret giving on August 14, 1985, when X
purchased the publishing rights to the vast majority of the Z’s catalog
for $47 million, outbidding Y himself. In 2008, however, X gave up
his remaining interest in the catalog to Sony, one of his primary
creditors. After his death, Sony took full control of the catalog. It was
only in 2016 that Y secured rights over his own music.

India’s e-commerce revolution has touched most men, women and
children in the country, so why should animals be left behind? With
the long list of apps doing around, _________ app is getting more
attention not only because what is does but also because of its
quirky name. __________ is an online platform which allows users to
buy and sell livestock including cows, buffalos and goats. Founded in
2019, __________ calls itself India’s largest online livestock market,
with the app saying it is the “No. 1 gaye bhains wala pashumela (No.

X is a fictional character in William Shakespeare’s play The Merchant
of Venice. A Venetian Jewish moneylender, X is the play's principle
antagonist. Shakespeare’s this character has been a matter of
discussion for a very long time. Several critiques called it a character
Shakespeare struggled the most with. X’s characterisation is
composed of stereotypes, for instance greediness and vengefulness,
although these are unfounded as there were no practicing Jews who
lived in England during Shakespearean England. Jews were expelled
from the country in 1290 by Edward I in the Edict of Expulsion; this
was not reversed until the Cromwell Era.
