Desai: Let the matter be heard in open court instead of virtual court. All the accused are already out on bail.

Even if Shivade want to argue on a small point, that is also a complicated legal issue. Thus I would pray for an open court hearing.

1⃣ In #Uttarakhand, increasingly warmer winters are making #Rhododendrons bloom earlier than usual; during February-March instead of its usual schedule of March-May.

The season is not the best time for #Rhododendrons, because late winter rains in February-March wash away the blooms, affecting local population dependent on making juice, jams and jellies from the flowers.
