Day after senior RSS
leader Indresh Kumar
slammed the ruling BJP
for “arrogance” and Op-
position INDIA bloc for
being “Anti-Ram”, back-
tracks after controversy
erupted over his remarks
in political circles.
Speaking at the “Ram-
rath Ayodhya Yatra Dar-
shan Poojan Samaroh” at
Kanota near Jaipur on
Thursday, the RSS na-
tional executive member
did not mention the rivals
by name but suggested
that the poll outcome re-
flected their attitudes.
“The party which did the
bhakti (of lord Ram) but
became arrogant was
stopped at 241 but it was
made the biggest party,”
he said, in an apparent
reference to Modi-led
BJP which got 240 seats
in the Lok Sabha seats.
Soon after Kumar’s re-
marks, there was a tussle
within BJP and RSS re-
garding this. At the same
time, RSS distanced it-
self from Kumar’s arro-
gance statement. The
Sangh said that his state-
ment is not the official
statement of RSS, it is his
personal opinion. Mean-
while, on late Friday,
statement of Kumar goes
viral in which he said that
those who worship Ram
have come to power.Tak-
ing a u-turn, on his re-
marks LS poll results,
Kumar said, “Those who
had pledged the devotion
to Ram are in power and
3rd government has been
formed under leadership
of Narendra Modi. Peo-
ple have this belief that
the country will progress
under PM Modi.”

ndia has had
a commend-
able start to
the T20
World Cup
in the USA and raced into
the Super Eights in fine
style. Team India recorded
an unbeatable run by navi-
gating the tricky surfaces of
New York with skill and
determination. Despite the
challenging conditions at
the Nassau County Cricket
stadium, the Rohit Sharma
led team emerged un-
scathed, showcasing their
resilience and adaptability
especially in the Blockbust-
er Clash with Pakistan
which produced a low-
scoring thriller!
Though it’s the batting
unit that generally enables
the ‘Men in Blue’ to domi-
nate, this time its India’s
bowling attack that has
been a highlight of their
campaign so far. Passing all
tests in flying colours, In-
dian bowlers, with Jasprit
Bumrah leading the charge,
have been simply superb in
India’s winning march in
New York.
Pace-ace Bumrah has
been in top form, delivering
match-winning perfor-
mances and demonstrating
why he is currently consid-
ered the most lethal bowler
in the world. His excep-
tional effort against Paki-
stan was particularly nota-
ble, where he played a cru-
cialroleinturningthegame
in India’s favor though In-
dia’s batters had notched up
a total of just 119.
In a superlative display,
however, India’s under-
rated bowlers ultimately
pipped Pakistan by six
runs.At one stage, Pakistan
were 72-2 and seemed
poised for victory. But with
Bumrah breathing fire and
the others bowling with
guile and discipline, India
managed a fabulous win
that sent Indian fans into
ecstasybutpushedPakistan
to the brink of elimination
as they had already lost to
World Cup debutants USA.
Adding to Team India’s
bowling strength, Hardik
Pandya has found his
rhythm, delivering consist-
ently impressive perfor-
mances. Pandya’s turna-
round after a pathetic IPL
season is a huge bonus for
Team India. While he is yet
to strike at his best with the
bat, Pandya’s crafty bowl-
ing is a positive sign for
India as they move forward
in the tournament and pro-
vides a skillful, reliable op-
tion in India’s bowling ar-
senal on all pitches whether
they favour pace or spin.
Left-arm pacerArshdeep
Singh has also been in im-
pressive form and recorded
the best bowling figures by
anIndianinT20WorldCup
history in the tricky game
against USA. With mag-
nificent figures of 4-0-9-4,
Arshdeep helped to restrict
USA to a modest target
which Team India knocked
offcomfortablydespitehic-
cups at the start.
While the bowling unit
hasbeenstrong,India’sbat-
ting lineup has hardly fired
anywhere close to its best.
The opening pair of Virat
Kohli and Rohit Sharma
have struggled to find their
form, a big cause for con-
cern for fans keen to savour
their strokeplay. Despite
their underwhelming per-
formances, many feel
there’s no need to change
the opening pair, given
their proven track records.
In some quarters, however,
there is a talk of puttingYa-
shasvi Jaiswal at the top
and moving King Kohli to
his number three slot where
he has always excelled.
However, the middle or-
der appears in need of a
strategic re-adjustment.
Shivam Dube’s inclusion in
the playing XI has been
questioned,especiallysince
hehasnotbeencontributing
with the ball. Experts sug-
gest that Dube should be
replaced by Sanju Samson
who is not only a more ac-
complished batsman but
also a powerful hitter, and
can bolster India’s middle
order significantly.
The potential washout
of India’s match against
Canada in Florida adds an
element of uncertainty, but
the focus remains on main-
taining form and making
strategic decisions to en-
hance the team’s chances.
With a strong bowling at-
tack and a potential tweak
in the batting lineup, India
is well-positioned to con-
tinue their impressive run
in the World Cup.
As India advances to the
Super 8s, the excitement
of the World Cup is all set
to intensify and the stage
is now set for some thrill-
ing cricket in the West In-
dies. The team’s perfor-
mance in the upcoming
matches will be crucial to
determine their path for-
ward in the tournament.
While India is certain to
face formidable Australia
who have already quali-
fied, the other two teams
likely to confront India in
the Group Stage of the Su-
per 8s areAfghanistan and
Bangladesh.
India’s World Cup jour-
ney so far has been marked
by impressive bowling
performances but major
batting challenges.Though
Rohit Sharma, Rishab Pant
and Surya Kumar Yadav
have shown flashes of bril-
liance, Team India’s bat-
ting powerhouse needs to
start clicking in unison if
the Men in Blue wish to
return with an ICC trophy
this time, something that’s
eluded them for over a dec-
ade now. The team’s abil-
ity to adapt and make nec-
essary changes will be a
key element as they move
into the Super 8s. Fans can
look forward to an exciting
phase of the tournament,
with India poised to de-
liver more memorable per-
formances.

IN-DEPTH
WIDENING GULF BETWEEN
RSS AND THE PARTY
TRAGIC DEATH OF
INDIANS IN KUWAIT
he war of words between the Rashtriya
Swayamsevak Sangh and the Bharatiya Ja-
nata Party seems to be escalating. After Mo-
han Bhagwat’s chastising remarks on arrogance,
which were applicable to the opposition as much as
to the BJP, another RSS leader jumped into the fray.
Senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar, who formed the
Muslim Rashtriya Manch, saying that Lord Ram re-
stricted those with ahankaar (arrogance) to 241 seats
and those who opposed the deity ended up with only
234 seats. His reference obviously was to the BJP
and the INDI Alliance.
The BJP is rankled by its heavy loss of seats in
Uttar Pradesh and is trying to find out what exactly
could be the reason for the staggering loss of seats.
Union minister Jitan Ram Manjhi of the Hindustani
Awam Morcha joined the issue on behalf of the BJP
and told “those who are saying this to think about
themselves…” With Yogi Aditynath set to meet
Bhagwat there is more to come.
T
2014 study on Indian migrant workers in
West Asia highlighted “unhealthy labour
laws, practices, and environments.” The
study emphasized that the ‘Kafala System,’often de-
scribed as modern-day slavery, exposes migrant la-
bourers to human trafficking and forced labour. This
system has led to severe human rights abuses.
The tragic death of 45 Indian workers in Kuwait
demonstrates that the situation has changed little in
the past decade. The living conditions of these work-
ers were deplorable. Reports indicate they were
crammed into rooms divided by cardboard and plas-
tic, with cooking gas
cylinders and other
flammable materials
carelessly scattered
around. The closed
door to the terrace
made the building
more of a tinderbox.
It is a well laid out
trap for migrant
workers. They are
made to sign docu-
ments which they
cannot read. Once
they land in the coun-
try of their destina-
tion their passports
are taken away by
employers making
them illegal immi-
grants. They are thus
unable to go out and lodge a complaint or leave the
country. For the illiterate and semi-skilled workers the
problem gets even more acute as the lure of the lucre
is far more tempting than a background check on the
employing agency or employers.
From 2019 till June 30, 2023 Indian embassies in
Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, UnitedArab Emirates, Qatar
and Saudi Arabia were reported to have received
48,095 complaints from Indian migrant workers who
faced rights violations and exploitative working con-
ditions.The Indian government must intervene before
unskilled and semi-skilled workers embark on their
journey to protect them from being held in near slav-
ery for exploitation.

ONE NATION ONE ELECTION
Plans afoot to place Kovind panel’s

PTI
New Delhi
The Union law ministry
plans to place before the
Union Cabinet the report
of the high-level com-
mittee on ‘one nation,
one election’, sources
said on Friday.
They said placing the
report before the cabinet
“at the earliest” is part of
the 100-day agenda of
the Legislative Depart-
ment in the law ministry.
Ahead of Lok Sabha
elections, Prime Minister
Narendra Modi had di-
rectedallunionministries
and departments to draw
up a 100-day agenda for
the next government.
The high-level com-
mittee on ‘one nation,
one election’ headed by
former president Ram
Nath Kovind had sub-
mitted its report to Pres-
ident Droupadi Murmu
on March 15, recom-
mended simultaneous
elections for Lok Sabha
and state assemblies as
the first step followed by
synchronised local body
polls within 100 days.
The panel had also
proposed setting up of an
‘Implementation Group
to look into the execution
of the recommendations
made by the committee.
Simultaneous polls
will help save resources,
spur development and
social cohesion, deepen
“foundations of demo-
cratic rubric” and help
realise the aspirations of
“India, that is Bharat”,
the panel had said.
The panel also recom-
mended preparation of a
common electoral roll
and voter ID cards by
the Election Commis-
sion of India in consulta-
tion with state election
authorities.

Defence Minister Ra-
jnath Singh on Friday
visited the Eastern Naval
Command at Visakhapa-
tnam, Andhra Pradesh to
review the operational
readiness of the Indian
Navy, and embarked on
INS Jalashwa for a ‘Day
at Sea’. It was Singh’s
first outstation visit after
assuming charge as the
Defence Minister for the
second consecutive term.
During the ‘Day at
Sea’, the Defence Minis-
ter witnessed the dynam-
ic operations by various
ships, submarine and air-
craft of the Command,
showcasing the combat
capability and prepared-
ness of the Indian Navy.
He was accompanied by
Chief of the Naval Staff
Admiral Dinesh K Trip-
athi and Flag Officer
Commanding-in-Chief,
Eastern Naval Command
Vice Admiral Rajesh
Pendharkar.
Interacting with the of-
ficers and sailors of the
Eastern Fleet, Rajnath
Singh commended the
Indian Navy for being
operationally ready, and
emerging as the first re-
sponder in the Indian
Ocean Region (IOR).
“Our Navy ensures
that no nation suppresses
another in the Indo-Pa-
cific region or endangers
its strategic autonomy on
the basis of economic
strength or military pow-
er. This is in line with
Prime Minister Narendra
Modi’s vision of Security
And Growth for All in
the Region (SAGAR)
wherein our friendly
countries in the region
remain safe and move
forward together on the
path of mutual progress,”
he said.
The Defence Minister
credited the Indian Navy
for playing a crucial role
in the country’s growth
and raising its stature on
the international stage.
He made special mention
of the Navy’s daring res-
cue operation in the Ara-
bian Sea in March 2024,
when it freed 23 Paki-
stani nationals from So-
mali pirates.
This operation, Ra-
jnath Singh said, was a
demonstration of human-
ity as well as the values
imbibed in the Naval per-
sonnel, who come to the
aid of everyone, irrespec-
tive of their nationality.

nity foremost in develop-
ing and using artificial
intelligence, warning that
such powerful technolo-
gy risks turning human
relations themselves into
mere algorithms.
Francis said politicians
must take the lead in mak-
ing sure AI remains hu-
man-centric, so that deci-
sions about when to use
weapons or even less-le-
thal tools always remain
made by humans and not
machines.
Italian Premier Giorgia
Meloni invited Francis
and announced his par-
ticipation, knowing the
potential impact of his
star power and moral au-
thority on the G7.
Pope Francis called for
a ban on “lethal autono-
mous weapons” in an ad-
dress to the G7 leaders’
summit in Italy on the
perils of artificial intelli-
gence (AI).
“We recognise the im-
pact ofAI on the military
domain and the need for
a framework for respon-
sible development and
use,” the leaders said.

kanksha Choud-
hary, a 21-year-
old B.Tech stu-
dent from Jaipur,
has embarked on a
remarkable jour-
ney from a basketball court to
the world of modelling. Born
and raised in Jaipur, Akank-
sha's early years were filled
with sports and academics.
She was a basketball and
handball player and an NCC cadet
during her school days. Despite her
serious academic pursuits, including
aspirations to join IIT Bombay,
Akanksha found her true passion in
modelling.
Her journey in the modelling
world was not without challenges.
For three consecutive years,
Akanksha auditioned for
beauty pageants, driven
by her dream to repre-
sent India on an inter-
national stage. Her de-
termination paid off
when she won Miss Ra-
jasthan 2023, securing
the first runner-up posi-
tion with the guidance
of Miss Rajasthan
Founders  Directors, Yogesh
Mishra  Nimisha Mishra. Her vic-
tory was a testament to her resil-
ience, as she faced numerous rejec-
tions and struggled with maintaining
the ideal physique for the industry.
Akanksha's family has been a pil-
lar of support throughout her jour-
ney. Her father, who runs a small
medical shop, and her mother, a
housewife, initially envisioned a dif-
ferent path for her. However, seeing
her dedication and hard work, they
have come to support her dreams.
Her elder brothers, both engineers
and one now an IAS officer, have
been role models, exemplifying
the value of persistence.
Balancing her B.Tech studies
with her modelling career,
Akanksha also finds joy in
dancing, watching K-dra-
mas, and reminiscing
about childhood science
experiments with her
brothers. She practices
meditation and cherishes
time with friends and fam-
ily, maintaining a healthy
and balanced lifestyle.
Akanksha is not just focused
on her modelling career; she har-
bours a dream to become an ac-
tor. With no plan B, she is de-
termined to live in the pre-
sent, working tirelessly to
ensure her dreams be-
come reality. Her ulti-
mate goal is to pro-
vide a better life for
her parents and
make them proud by
achieving interna-
tional acclaim in
the world of mod-
elling and acting.
Akanksha Choudhary's journey from a young sports enthusiast
in Jaipur to a recognized model is a story of resilience,
determination, and the relentless pursuit of dreams. City First
brings you her ability to overcome obstacles and stay focused on
her goals continues to inspire many, proving that with passion
and perseverance, one can achieve greatness.

W o r l d
Blood Do-
nor Day,
Every year
on June 14th, countries
around the globe come
together to celebrate
World Blood Donor Day,
a day dedicated to raising
awareness about the criti-
cal need for safe blood
and blood products and to
thank voluntary, unpaid
blood donors for their
life-saving gifts.This spe-
cial day was established
by the World Health Or-
ganization (WHO) in
2004 and has since be-
come an important event
in the health calendar.
PROMOTING
BLOOD DONATION
World Blood Donor
Day is not just a cel-
ebration but also a
call to action. It en-
courages more peo-
ple to become regu-
lar blood donors and
inspires communi-
ties to establish ef-
fective blood dona-
tion programs. Pub-
lic awareness cam-
paigns, media cover-
age, and educational
events play a signifi-
cant role in spread-
ing the message and
debunking myths as-
sociated with blood
donation.
THE HEROES AMONG US:
BLOOD DONORS
Blood donors are unsung heroes who play a
crucial role in ensuring the availability of
safe blood. These donors come from all
walks of life, united by their commitment to
helping others. Their selfless acts provide
the essential lifeline for many medical treat-
ments and emergencies. Voluntary, unpaid
blood donors are particularly important as
their donations are considered the safest source
of blood. This is because these donors are moti-
vated purely by altruism and are less likely to with-
hold information about their health status, ensuring
the blood supply is safe from infectious diseases.
Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give
to another person – the gift of life. A decision to
donate your blood can save a life, or even several
if your blood is separated into its components – red
cells, platelets, and plasma – which can be used
individually for patients with specific conditions.
Blood transfusions are needed for a variety of
conditions and situations, including.
SEVERE TRAUMA: from accidents,
natural disasters, or conflicts.
SURGERIES: including those related
to organ transplants and major surgeries.
CANCER TREATMENTS: patients
undergoing chemotherapy often need
blood transfusions.
CHRONIC ILLNESSES: such as
sickle cell anaemia and thalassemia.
COMPLICATIONS DURING
CHILDBIRTH: which can result in se-
vere blood loss.
The theme for 2024 Each year, World
Blood Donor Day is centred around a spe-
cificthemetohighlightdifferentaspectsof
blooddonationandtransfusion.Thetheme
for 2024 is “Give Blood, Give Life,” em-
phasizing the vital role of voluntary blood
donors in providing a steady and safe sup-
ply of blood for those in need. This theme encourages people to see
blood donation as a selfless act of solidarity and a service to humanity.

BECOMING A
BLOOD DONOR
The process of donating blood
is simple, safe, and takes only
about an hour. Here’s how you

include age, weight, health sta-
tus, and travel history.
 FIND A BLOOD DONATION

donation centre or blood drive.
 REGISTRATION AND
SCREENING: Upon arrival, you
will register and undergo a brief
health screening to ensure you

donation takes about 10-15
minutes. You will donate approxi-
mately one pint of blood.
 POST-DONATION CARE:
After donating, you will be given

important to drink plenty
of fluids and avoid

Jain, considered the case’s mastermind, was pro- duced in Jaipur’s Special Court for CBI cases on Friday, where the ED sought a 5-day remand.

Allegations of corruption surfaced im- mediately after the scheme’s implementa- tion, with accusations totaling Rs 20,000 crore by State Agriculture Minister Dr Kirodi Lal Meena. ACB arrests inAugust 2023 prompted ED’s in- volvement, leading to raids and discoveries of cash, gold, and digital equipment.

During the court hear- ing, Padma Chand Jain’s lawyer called his arrest illegal, requesting medi- cal care.

Criminals have been brought under con- trol by the Anti-Gangster Task Force. PM Naren- dra Modi has disbursed installments of the Kisan Samman Nidhi and has laid out a roadmap for the next 100 days.” Regarding Rajasthan’s performance in Lok Sab- ha polls, Joshi mentioned that a report on the results is being prepared.

This predicament arose after the Board of Control for Cricket in In- dia (BCCI) ceased fund- ing RCA, which lacks recognition from the board’s ad hoc commit- tee. Now, members of the ad hoc committee plan to approach board officials to request financial assis- tance for hosting tourna- ments. However, due to ongo- ing disputes, it is unlikely that the board will imme- diately provide funds to RCA. This uncertainty raises doubts about RCA’s ability to conduct its own tournaments.

  • 4. ndia has had a commend- able start to the T20 World Cup in the USA and raced into the Super Eights in fine style. Team India recorded an unbeatable run by navi- gating the tricky surfaces of New York with skill and determination. Despite the challenging conditions at the Nassau County Cricket stadium, the Rohit Sharma led team emerged un- scathed, showcasing their resilience and adaptability especially in the Blockbust- er Clash with Pakistan which produced a low- scoring thriller! Though it’s the batting unit that generally enables the ‘Men in Blue’ to domi- nate, this time its India’s bowling attack that has been a highlight of their campaign so far. Passing all tests in flying colours, In- dian bowlers, with Jasprit Bumrah leading the charge, have been simply superb in India’s winning march in New York. Pace-ace Bumrah has been in top form, delivering match-winning perfor- mances and demonstrating why he is currently consid- ered the most lethal bowler in the world. His excep- tional effort against Paki- stan was particularly nota- ble, where he played a cru- cialroleinturningthegame in India’s favor though In- dia’s batters had notched up a total of just 119. In a superlative display, however, India’s under- rated bowlers ultimately pipped Pakistan by six runs.At one stage, Pakistan were 72-2 and seemed poised for victory. But with Bumrah breathing fire and the others bowling with guile and discipline, India managed a fabulous win that sent Indian fans into ecstasybutpushedPakistan to the brink of elimination as they had already lost to World Cup debutants USA. Adding to Team India’s bowling strength, Hardik Pandya has found his rhythm, delivering consist- ently impressive perfor- mances. Pandya’s turna- round after a pathetic IPL season is a huge bonus for Team India. While he is yet to strike at his best with the bat, Pandya’s crafty bowl- ing is a positive sign for India as they move forward in the tournament and pro- vides a skillful, reliable op- tion in India’s bowling ar- senal on all pitches whether they favour pace or spin. Left-arm pacerArshdeep Singh has also been in im- pressive form and recorded the best bowling figures by anIndianinT20WorldCup history in the tricky game against USA. With mag- nificent figures of 4-0-9-4, Arshdeep helped to restrict USA to a modest target which Team India knocked offcomfortablydespitehic- cups at the start. While the bowling unit hasbeenstrong,India’sbat- ting lineup has hardly fired anywhere close to its best. The opening pair of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have struggled to find their form, a big cause for con- cern for fans keen to savour their strokeplay. Despite their underwhelming per- formances, many feel there’s no need to change the opening pair, given their proven track records. In some quarters, however, there is a talk of puttingYa- shasvi Jaiswal at the top and moving King Kohli to his number three slot where he has always excelled. However, the middle or- der appears in need of a strategic re-adjustment. Shivam Dube’s inclusion in the playing XI has been questioned,especiallysince hehasnotbeencontributing with the ball. Experts sug- gest that Dube should be replaced by Sanju Samson who is not only a more ac- complished batsman but also a powerful hitter, and can bolster India’s middle order significantly. The potential washout of India’s match against Canada in Florida adds an element of uncertainty, but the focus remains on main- taining form and making strategic decisions to en- hance the team’s chances. With a strong bowling at- tack and a potential tweak in the batting lineup, India is well-positioned to con- tinue their impressive run in the World Cup. As India advances to the Super 8s, the excitement of the World Cup is all set to intensify and the stage is now set for some thrill- ing cricket in the West In- dies. The team’s perfor- mance in the upcoming matches will be crucial to determine their path for- ward in the tournament. While India is certain to face formidable Australia who have already quali- fied, the other two teams likely to confront India in the Group Stage of the Su- per 8s areAfghanistan and Bangladesh. India’s World Cup jour- ney so far has been marked by impressive bowling performances but major batting challenges.Though Rohit Sharma, Rishab Pant and Surya Kumar Yadav have shown flashes of bril- liance, Team India’s bat- ting powerhouse needs to start clicking in unison if the Men in Blue wish to return with an ICC trophy this time, something that’s eluded them for over a dec- ade now. The team’s abil- ity to adapt and make nec- essary changes will be a key element as they move into the Super 8s. Fans can look forward to an exciting phase of the tournament, with India poised to de- liver more memorable per- formances.

After Mo- han Bhagwat’s chastising remarks on arrogance, which were applicable to the opposition as much as to the BJP, another RSS leader jumped into the fray. Senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar, who formed the Muslim Rashtriya Manch, saying that Lord Ram re- stricted those with ahankaar (arrogance) to 241 seats and those who opposed the deity ended up with only 234 seats. His reference obviously was to the BJP and the INDI Alliance. The BJP is rankled by its heavy loss of seats in Uttar Pradesh and is trying to find out what exactly could be the reason for the staggering loss of seats. Union minister Jitan Ram Manjhi of the Hindustani Awam Morcha joined the issue on behalf of the BJP and told “those who are saying this to think about themselves…” With Yogi Aditynath set to meet Bhagwat there is more to come. T 2014 study on Indian migrant workers in West Asia highlighted “unhealthy labour laws, practices, and environments.” The study emphasized that the ‘Kafala System,’often de- scribed as modern-day slavery, exposes migrant la- bourers to human trafficking and forced labour. This system has led to severe human rights abuses. The tragic death of 45 Indian workers in Kuwait demonstrates that the situation has changed little in the past decade. The living conditions of these work- ers were deplorable. Reports indicate they were crammed into rooms divided by cardboard and plas- tic, with cooking gas cylinders and other flammable materials carelessly scattered around. The closed door to the terrace made the building more of a tinderbox. It is a well laid out trap for migrant workers. They are made to sign docu- ments which they cannot read. Once they land in the coun- try of their destina- tion their passports are taken away by employers making them illegal immi- grants. They are thus unable to go out and lodge a complaint or leave the country. For the illiterate and semi-skilled workers the problem gets even more acute as the lure of the lucre is far more tempting than a background check on the employing agency or employers. From 2019 till June 30, 2023 Indian embassies in Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, UnitedArab Emirates, Qatar and Saudi Arabia were reported to have received 48,095 complaints from Indian migrant workers who faced rights violations and exploitative working con- ditions.The Indian government must intervene before unskilled and semi-skilled workers embark on their journey to protect them from being held in near slav- ery for exploitation. A The study emphasized that the ‘Kafala System,’ often described as modern-day slavery, exposes migrant labourers to human trafficking and forced labour. This system has led to severe human rights abuses I Conveyed my Greetings Best wishes to Respected Dr PK Mishra ji for being re-appointed as Principal Secretary to PM for the next consecutive term in the PMO. “Looking forward to be blessed with your vast experience valuable advice to achieve the vision of PM Sh @NarendraModi” .

This is in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of Security And Growth for All in the Region (SAGAR) wherein our friendly countries in the region remain safe and move forward together on the path of mutual progress,” he said.

Born and raised in Jaipur, Akank- sha's early years were filled with sports and academics. She was a basketball and handball player and an NCC cadet during her school days. Despite her serious academic pursuits, including aspirations to join IIT Bombay, Akanksha found her true passion in modelling. Her journey in the modelling world was not without challenges. For three consecutive years, Akanksha auditioned for beauty pageants, driven by her dream to repre- sent India on an inter- national stage. Her de- termination paid off when she won Miss Ra- jasthan 2023, securing the first runner-up posi- tion with the guidance of Miss Rajasthan Founders Directors, Yogesh Mishra Nimisha Mishra. Her vic- tory was a testament to her resil- ience, as she faced numerous rejec- tions and struggled with maintaining the ideal physique for the industry. Akanksha's family has been a pil- lar of support throughout her jour- ney. Her father, who runs a small medical shop, and her mother, a housewife, initially envisioned a dif- ferent path for her. However, seeing her dedication and hard work, they have come to support her dreams. Her elder brothers, both engineers and one now an IAS officer, have been role models, exemplifying the value of persistence. Balancing her B.Tech studies with her modelling career, Akanksha also finds joy in dancing, watching K-dra- mas, and reminiscing about childhood science experiments with her brothers. She practices meditation and cherishes time with friends and fam- ily, maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Akanksha is not just focused on her modelling career; she har- bours a dream to become an ac- tor. With no plan B, she is de- termined to live in the pre- sent, working tirelessly to ensure her dreams be- come reality. Her ulti- mate goal is to pro- vide a better life for her parents and make them proud by achieving interna- tional acclaim in the world of mod- elling and acting.

PROMOTING BLOOD DONATION World Blood Donor Day is not just a cel- ebration but also a call to action. It en- courages more peo- ple to become regu- lar blood donors and inspires communi- ties to establish ef- fective blood dona- tion programs. Pub- lic awareness cam- paigns, media cover- age, and educational events play a signifi- cant role in spread- ing the message and debunking myths as- sociated with blood donation. THE HEROES AMONG US: BLOOD DONORS Blood donors are unsung heroes who play a crucial role in ensuring the availability of safe blood. These donors come from all walks of life, united by their commitment to helping others. Their selfless acts provide the essential lifeline for many medical treat- ments and emergencies. Voluntary, unpaid blood donors are particularly important as their donations are considered the safest source of blood. This is because these donors are moti- vated purely by altruism and are less likely to with- hold information about their health status, ensuring the blood supply is safe from infectious diseases. Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person – the gift of life. A decision to donate your blood can save a life, or even several if your blood is separated into its components – red cells, platelets, and plasma – which can be used individually for patients with specific conditions. Blood transfusions are needed for a variety of conditions and situations, including. SEVERE TRAUMA: from accidents, natural disasters, or conflicts. SURGERIES: including those related to organ transplants and major surgeries. CANCER TREATMENTS: patients undergoing chemotherapy often need blood transfusions. CHRONIC ILLNESSES: such as sickle cell anaemia and thalassemia. COMPLICATIONS DURING CHILDBIRTH: which can result in se- vere blood loss. The theme for 2024 Each year, World Blood Donor Day is centred around a spe- cificthemetohighlightdifferentaspectsof blooddonationandtransfusion.Thetheme for 2024 is “Give Blood, Give Life,” em- phasizing the vital role of voluntary blood donors in providing a steady and safe sup- ply of blood for those in need.
