Fishing on a waterlogged highway
Location: Kamrup

While Assam has been in the political headlines for Shiv Sena reasons, what has been largely ignored by the national media is the extremely difficult conditions the state is facing amid heavy rains.

As the flood waters blocked their access to food and water, locals were seen laying nets to catch fish on the inundated National Highway 31.

The flood waters have submerged one side of the 4-lane national highway at Moranjona, which falls under the Rangia assembly constituency in Assam’s Kamrup district.

Shanan Dhaka tops NDA’s first women batch
Location: Mohali

She knew she wanted to join the army.

She also knew then that it was not possible.

Then, the circumstances changed.

“Working in the army isn’t a job, but a service,” says Shanan Dhaka, who has topped the NDA’s first women’s batch.

“Once the girls wanted to sit for an NDA mock test being conducted at school, but were not allowed as the test was only for the boys. Now when I recall that day, it feels good to have achieved this,” she adds.

Shanan, who hails from Rohtak in Haryana, has also ranked 10th in the overall NDA result.

“I was an honorary naib subedar in the army; my father was a subedar. My daughter grew up in army surroundings, lived in cantonment areas and saw how respectfully army officers are treated. That is how she decided to join the army,” says Shanan’s father, Vijay Kumar Dhaka.
