Nagpurians got a big relief from the drop in winter temperature after 14th January i.e Makar Sankranti. The nights got less colder and there was a sigh of relief from chilling cold weather which made nagpurians stay indoors during night. The afternoon temperature has risen considerably now and very few people will be seen with sweaters and shawls.
Usage of plastic bags less than 50 microns has been banned all over India. The government has requested shopkeepers and the general public to use jute bags or cloth bags instead of plastic bags. This initiative has been done to save our planet earth from polluting. The shopkeepers or local vegetable sellers keep plenty of plastic bags which are less than 50 microns as they are cheap and can help carry the sold vegetables.
The new year started on a happy note with new dreams and goals. The city temperature is giving nagpurians goosebumps as it is getting colder and colder. A city known for warmest summers all over India will now be known for cold winters too. School going children find it very difficult to wake up in the morning due to dip in morning temperature.
Nagpurians beware. Have faith but do not blindly follow someone. Blind faith on a baba by a mother of 4 year year old daughter led to her killing. It is a very shameful incident which took place in Nagpur. Mother killed her own daughter to bring prosperity to her home by stabbing her on the chest 21 times.
It has not been more than 2 years since load shedding ended. We all were happy that at last Nagpur city will not face load shedding. Though it houses many power plants but still it faces hardships of load shedding the reason given by MSEDCL and Spanco is losses. Is there no loss of power when the power gets distributed from Nagpur to the adjoining cities. Is it below permissible limits at they make their own limits and take their own decisions. Power is the basic necessity after food, clothing and shelter. How can we all get deprived of power because of losses above certain limits.
Duronto which used to run thrice a week will be converted into a daily train. It is good news for Nagpurians as there was always a long waiting list in trains like sevagram and Vidarbha. Many people adopted other means of conveyance in the absence of confirmed ticket in trains.
Nagpur will soon be a clean train station where standardized methods will be used for cleaning trains. Water coolers have been installed at the railway stations which has been donated by NGO's. It will be maintained by Railways.
Decision to run Duronto daily will sure bring smiles to all Nagpurians.

It is a very unhealthy habit to throw anything on the road. People have the habit of throwing potato chips packet, packaged drinking water bottles and biscuits packet on the road after consumption.
