Important news for general public, but not important for the UPSC exam. We have written many newscards on this, you can go through them for better understanding of the issue.
No conclusive evidence against the duo: HC
The Allahabad High Court, in its verdict on Thursday acquitting the dentist-couple Rajesh and Nupur Talwar in the 2008 murder of their daughter Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj, dismissed the trial court’s contention that since nobody else but the parents were present in the house on the night of the killings, only they were likely to have committed the crime.
It is a very popular case. But popularity doesn’t matter for the UPSC exam. Just stick to the syllabus and eliminate unnecessary things(from the UPSC exam perspective).
The house on Primrose Hill
On October 14, 1956, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar converted to Buddhism during a massive public ceremony held in Nagpur, at a place thereafter named Deeksha Bhoomi . He took Buddhist vows in order to reject his Hindu birth at the very bottom of the caste order, and because, as he declared: “I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity.” More than 400,000 people, most of them born Dalit, underwent the conversion, along with him, on that historic day 61 years ago.
The Op-Ed talks about Dr BR Ambedkar. He is a very important personality, of the Indian Modern History. But this article is about the personal point of view of the writer, on Ambedkar. Personal point of views are not important for the exam. So, you can skip this article.
