A team comprising distinguished genetic experts # from six institutions, led by Prof Gyaneshwer Chaubey of the Banaras Hindu University analysed , complete DNA data of the Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) gene of X chromosome from various continental populations and found that it is the Indian genes that have protected the population and helped battle the deadly PM•Narendra Modi on Friday assured farmers that the two Bills passed by Parliament would free them from the clutches of middlemen and give them the latitude to market their farm produce without restrictions. Modi said those opposing the reforms were antifarmer and speaking for middlemen and intermediaries.

The results of the team's analysis have been published in the internationally renowned journal PLOS ONE, released on Thursday . The scientists have pro- sured the farmers that they would get a higher minimum support price and better marketing facilities. More important, the government would continue to purchase their produce as was the case now. Meanwhile, even as the Akali Dal reiterated on Friday that it has not yet snapped ties with the BJP , PM Modi did not blink before forwarding resignation of Dal’s Harsimrat Badal, to the President. vided a possible molecular genetic explanation for why Iranians, Europeans and Americans of European ancestry are at more mortality risk to the novel Coronavirus than people in India and East Asia, as reflected in the current global distribution of reported Covid-19 cases per 1,00,000 inhabitants. The international team analysed complete DNA data of the ACE2 gene from various continental populations and found that certain mutations in this gene are helping South Asian and East Asian populations in successfully battling the virus and reducing mortality rate in comparison to the US and Europe. "The ACE2 gene is the gateway point of the Coro- navirus and certain genetic mutations of this gene are related to the disease severity said Chaubey ," . There have been a few initial studies on the ACE2 gene by other research groups, but all of them looked for the presence or absence of various mutations, whereas, this team used more powerful haplotype-based analysis. Prime Minister Narendra Modi understood the power of All India Radio or Akashvani as the organisation was named by Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore. Modi's Mann ki Baat had become an instant hit... . Carrying on the legacy and especially in this pan- demic era, Department of Higher Education (DHE) has decided to relay lectures to college students through Akashvani. The lectures will also be uploaded in audio and video mode on the department's website. However, the responsibility of conducting online classes would remain with the college prin- cipals during the period.The classes would be held from October 1 to November 13. DHE has roped the following for the purpose... Barkatullah university (Bhopal) for Science, Rani Durgavati University (Jabalpur) for Arts and Jiwaji University (Gwalior) for commerce. These universities will provide lectures for UG courses. Whereas, Devi Ahilya Vishwa Vidhyalaya (Indore) will provide lectures for PG courses. ,**+- %) ,%"'! , )#! . +' !- . )#*)# &! Worryingly the eyeball-to, eyeball deployment, at least in one place, is at a place where troops had disengaged previously after military-level talks. And the fresh eyeball-to-eyeball deployment comes at a time when China is yet to indicate the date for the next senior military-level talks. "At these places, troops $ and materials are just a few hundred meters away the ," source said, adding they are at three locations on the southern bank of the lake and one on the northern bank. On the north bank, the troops are facing each other between Finger 3 and Finger 4 where warning shots were fired in the air by both the armies.” 335 added in discharged list, 1927 in 3 days COVID-19 has tally is pegging new records by the day as 408 fresh cases, the highest number in a single day, was reported on Friday .

A bench of Justices D.Y. Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and K.M. Joseph expressed concern over the stereotyping and vilification of the Muslim community through the TV programme. The state government on Friday fixed 6 feet as the maximum height of idols of Goddess Durga for Navratri festival to be celebrated next month. Garba dance has not been permitted but cultural and social programme with less than 100 people can be organised with permission of district administration. Earlier, permission was not given for public celebrations of any festival but after request of religious organisations, government has permitted to install idols of Goddess in Navratri festival. In a circular, state home department has instructed all district collectors to inform local artistes about the directives so that they don’t make big idols for Navratri festival. The area of pandal has been fixed, which should not be more than10 x 10 square feet.
