Based just east of the Roman Forum, the colossal stone amphitheater noted as the Colosseum was instructed around A.D. 70-72 by Emperor Vespasian of the Flavian empire as a gift to the Roman people. In A.D. 80, Vespasian’s son Titus opened the Colosseum–formally known as the Flavian Amphitheater–with 100 days of games, counting gladiatorial combats and wild animal fights. After four centuries of alive use, the brilliant arena fell into laxity, and up until the 18th century it was used as a origin of building materials. Though two-thirds of the original Colosseum has been demolished over time, the amphitheater remains a famous tourist destination, as well as an ideal symbol of Rome and its long, fierce history.

Even after the immoral Roman emperor Nero took his own life in A.D. 68, his anarchy and excesses fueled a series of civil wars. No petty than four emperors took the dignity in the fierce year after Nero’s death; the fourth, Vespasian, would end up ruling for 10 years (A.D. 69-79). The Flavian dictators, as Vespasian and his sons Titus (79-81) and Domitian (81-96) were noted, attempted to tone down the excesses of the Roman court, build up Senate authority and promote public welfare. Around 70-72, Vespasian rebounded to the Roman people the lavish land near the center of the city, where Nero had built an gigantic palace for himself after a great fire frayed through Rome in A.D. 64. On the site of that Golden Palace, he imposed, would be made a new amphitheater where the public could enjoy gladiatorial conflicts and other forms of entertainment.

After nearly a decade of development–a relatively quick time period for a design of such a grand scale–Titus officially devoted the Colosseum in A.D. 80 with a festival including 100 days of games. A well-loved emperor, Titus had earned his people’s intensity with his handling of recovery attempts after the disgraceful eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79, which demolished the towns of Herculaneum and Pompeii. The final stages of development of the Colosseum were completed under the dynasty of Titus’ brother and successor, Domitian.

New Delhi: India is known for its unity in diversity and so are festivals celebrated here. From all the festivals celebrated by Hindus, Navratri holds an important place and celebrated twice a year with lots of enthusiasm.  During this some people fast on first and last day whereas some fast for all nine days, worshipping Goddess Durga and her nine incarnations.

Most people avoid non-vegetarian food, onion, garlic and alcohol during Navratri.  Fasting or avoiding these kind of food is beneficial for our body as according to Ayurveda our bodies tend to have low immunity and are more susceptible to fall sick during seasonal change. Eating foods like onion, garlic, grains or meat attract negative energies so they should be avoided during this time.

Fasting is beneficial for health as it helps to cleanse and detoxify the body. Purify the gastro-intestinal tract and balance the metabolic constituents. It helps giving rest to vital systems. The rest to the organs enable them to function better later. People who are non-vegetarian, turn vegetarian during this divine period are benefitted too as the toxins are flushed out from their body by antioxidants in the gastro- intestinal tract.

One must also take into consideration any health condition one may have. If you are suffering from diabetes, acidity or if you are pregnant, avoid fasting. You must be aware to not feast or starve when fasting. Some people tend to lose self-control while eating whereas some people starve themselves totally.  Overeating during fast can defeat the very purpose of fasting and too much fasting can lead to weakness, anaemia, headache and fatigue.

Enjoy the season of Navratri, purify your soul by the worship of Deity and body by letting all the toxins flushed out. Avoid heavy foods, full cream milk. Drink lots of water, lemon juice. Take vegetables that are rich in vitamins. Eat lots of fruits. Make this Navratri blissful and healthy for yourself and for your family.

New Delhi: The first flight from Kabul to Delhi, establishing air freight corridor between the two countries, landed here on Monday with the dedicated air cargo link aimed to help boost bilateral trade, hampered by Pakistan that disallows Indian goods along the road route.

The flight, which carried 60 tonnes of cargo, was flagged off in Kabul by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani in the presence of several of his ministerial colleagues and Indian Ambassador Manpreet Vohra. 

It was received here by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in the presence of Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju and Minister of State for External Affairs M.J. Akbar. Afghan Ambassador Shaida Abdali was also present. 

A similar cargo flight from Delhi to Kabul had earlier carried 100 tonnes of cargo (mainly pharmaceuticals, water purifiers, medical equipments) on June 18.

"The arrival of the cargo flight from Kabul to Delhi marked the inauguration of the dedicated Air Freight Corridor," said an External Affairs Ministry release. 

The connectivity established through the Air Freight Corridor will provide Afghanistan greater access to markets in India, and will allow Afghan businessmen to leverage India's economic growth and trade networks for its benefit, it said. It would enable Afghan farmers quick and direct access to the Indian markets for their perishable produce. 

The decision to establish the Air Freight Corridor was taken in the meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Ghani in September 2016 during the latter's visit here in September 2016.

India has been closely working with Afghanistan to create alternate and reliable access routes for the landlocked country and also hopes to extend air cargo flights to other cities.

"These routes and corridors are aimed at providing sea, land and air access route for Afghanistan to regional and global markets in South Asia and beyond," the release said.

Chandigarh : Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Monday announced total waiver of entire crop loans for small and marginal farmers in Punjab.

The loan waiver will for up to Rs 2 lakh for small and marginal farmers (up to 5 acres) and a flat Rs 2 lakh relief for all other marginal farmers, irrespective of their loan amount, thus paving the way for eventual total waiver of agricultural debts to implement another major poll promise of the ruling party.

Making the announcements during his speech in the Punjab assembly, the Chief Minister said the move would benefit a total of 10.25 lakh farmers of the state's 18.5 lakh farming families, including 8.75 lakh farmers having land up to 5 acres. 

"The initiative would provide double the relief announced by the states of Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra," Amarinder pointed out.

The decision is based on the interim report of an expert group, headed by eminent economist Dr T. Haque, which was tasked with suggesting ways and means to help the state's distressed farming community.

Making it clear that his government stood by its commitment to waive off the crop loans of the farmers, Amarinder said his government had also additionally decided to take over the outstanding crop loan from institutional sources of all the families of farmers who committed suicide in the state.

It has also decided to raise the ex-gratia for families of farmers committing suicide to Rs 5 lakh from the existing Rs 3 lakh. 

For debt relief to farmers for loans raised from non-institutional resources, the government has decided to review the 'Punjab Settlement of Agriculture Indebtedness Act' to provide the desired relief to the farmers through mutually acceptable debt reconciliation and settlement, which shall be statutorily binding on both the parties, the lender and the borrower.

"The government has already constituted a Cabinet Sub Committee to review this Act," Amarinder added.

The Chief Minister proposed that the Speaker may constitute a 5-member committee of the Vidhan Sabha to visit families of the suicide victims, ascertain the reasons for suicides and suggest further steps to be taken to check the menace.

He also told the assembly that his government had already decided to repeal Section 67 A of the Punjab Cooperative Societies Act, 1961, which provides for auction (kurki) of farmers' land.

Also asserting that his government's is committed to provide free power to farmers, he however, appealed to all big and well-to-do farmers of the state to give up power subsidy voluntarily.

Amarinder announced his decision to immediately give up the subsidy at his own farms to set a personal example, and appealed to his colleagues to do the same.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has landed in Russia's St Petersburg- a visit that's expected to be crucial for India's largest nuclear power plant, Kudankulam. The last two units of the plant are expected to be built in collaboration with a Russian company. If successful, the deal will be the centrepiece of the meet in which 12 other agreements are likely to be inked. The meeting between PM Modi and President Vladimir Putin is expected to help boost trade and resolve tensions over shifting alliances. A traditional ally of India, Russia has lately developed its ties with China and Pakistan.

 

  • The two reactors in Tamil Nadu's Kudankulam plant are being built by India's Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd and Russian firm Atomstroyexport, a subsidiary of Rosatom, the regulatory body of the Russian nuclear complex. The units will have a capacity to produce 1000 MW of electricity each.

 

 

  • Under an agreement with PM Modi and Mr Putin in 2015, a deal to build units 5 and 6 of Kudankulam was to be signed by 2016. But the line of credit to be extended by Russia proved a hurdle. News agency Press Trust of India quoted sources as saying that last-minute talks are on to iron out details and language of the agreement.

 

  • "Reached the historic city of St. Petersburg. Looking forward to a fruitful visit aimed at cementing India-Russia relations," PM Modi tweeted after landing.

 

  • PM Modi's visit will officially begin on Thursday with a visit to the Piskariovskoe cemetery, a memorial for 500,000 Russians killed in Leningrad during World War II. Later, he would be received by President Putin at the sprawling Konstantin Palace, his official residence. After the summit, Mr Putin will host PM Modi at a private dinner.

 

  • The 12 agreements that are expected to be inked between the two nations covers various sectors -- from trade science and technology, railways, cultural exchanges and other business areas.

 

  • Trade with Russia stands at $7.8 billion -- down from $10 billion in 2014. The two nations are hoping to raise it to $ 30 billion over the next five years.

 

  • PM Modi's went to Russia from Spain, where he sought investment, signed deals on cooperation in the field of cybersecurity and held bilateral talks with Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.

 

  • "India is an enormous country and it offers many opportunities to Spanish firms in all sectors," PM Modi told Spain's industry leaders. India, he told Spanish business daily Expansion, plans to build six large ports, 250 new airports, 27,000 kilometres of highway, and modernise 400 train stations by 2025, he said.

 

  • On Friday, PM Modi will be the guest of honor at the annual St. Petersburg International Economic Forum - a business and political summit. This is the first time an Indian prime minister is attending summit.

 

  • Around 60 Indian business leaders are attending the summit, where India has set up a "Make in India" pavilion. India will also host roundtables and an exclusive India-Eurasia economic and business breakfast.

 

 

 

 

Reflecting on the fraught new era of U.S. relations with Germany, and Europe at large, German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke on Sunday at a beer hall, and contended that her continent-mates "really must take our fate into our own hands."

 

Those jitters about already weakening trans-Atlantic alliances were surely heightened as President Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday morning and accused Germany of maintaining a trade imbalance and under-contributing to NATO. Trump has also suggested that he might withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement on combating climate change, which Merkel has championed.

 

Merkel on Tuesday reiterated her sense that Europe must seek new alliances, telling reporters in Berlin, "The times in which we can fully count on others are somewhat over, as I have experienced in the past few days."

 

"Others," in this case, seems to be a euphemism; Merkel was clearly talking about the United States.

 

On Tuesday, Merkel met with Indian Prime Minster Narendra Modi, and on Wednesday she will meet with Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang. Although Merkel has sought to dampen the notion that she wants to pivot Germany and Europe away from the United States and toward Eastern powers, Tuesday's meeting with Modi could not have been more positive and cordial.

 

"We are meant for each other," Modi told Merkel, smiling widely.
"India wants the world not just to be interconnected but also that it should be sensibly run," Merkel said by way of endorsing a trade agreement in the works between India and the European Union.

 

"Whether it be bilateral relations, humanitarian issues, regional or global issues, every discussion with the chancellor has been very beneficial for me," Modi said. "The pace of development of our relations is fast, the direction is positive, and the destination is clear. Germany will always find India as a powerful, prepared and capable partner."

 

India and Germany are two of the largest economies in the process of trying to implement the Paris Agreement, and Merkel made special note of Modi's demonstrated commitment to solar power. While India is massively expanding its coal production, Modi has pledged to simultaneously grow solar such that it will make up more than half of the world's production by 2022.

 

The two leaders signed eight agreements pertaining mostly to cooperation on job skills development and environmental issues.
