Unfair act

Liquor serving timing in various establishments are creating confusion in people’ mind, lack of coordination in police and state excise department is creating problems in city. This is also boosting illegal liquor serving after deadline at various places in city. And the liquor serving policy has remained up to moral policing.

"Night clubs and stared hotels are serving liquor and police are forcing other bar owners to shut down early. Isn't it injustice for the small owners and consumers?" This must be a question in liquor lovers' mind and permit room owners as well. "Isn't it is a discrimination to get permission till late nights and we have to follow up deadline to serve the liquor. There should be a proper guidelines and same rules to every one than moral policing," said Hotelier from Baner.

Is the timing is becoming a moral policing issue?

Celebrating Easter

Easter has its beginnings in ancient Christian holidays, pagan celebrations, and spring festivals. Long before the celebration of Easter as the resurrection of Jesus Christ, people celebrated a spring festival. The sun was an important part of the celebration. Without it, there would be no life on earth. The people feasted, danced, sang, and exchanged gifts. They rejoiced over the rebirth of life in the fields and forests. Today these customs and legends combine to make our Easter Sunday.

At Easter, we celebrate the earth’s new year of growth, after the cold, dark days of winter. Easter, the goddess of spring, gave the Easter festival its name and favorite animal, the rabbit. The rabbit, or hare, represents love, fertility, and growth. Many people around the world have a day to celebrate the arrival of spring.

The Easter egg is a good example of a custom that began many thousands of years ago. For ancient peoples, the symbol of new life was an egg. When the shell was broken, a new life came into the world. Some myths state that the world itself began as an huge egg. The world-egg split in two. The upper half became the heavens and the lower half the earth. For thousands of years, it has been the custom to give eggs as gifts during the spring festival. Today we have fun dyeing them in bright colors and decorating them with simple designs.
