A short story about a really nice man named Omer in Vienna. I went to Vienna last month to attend the International Press Institute's World Congress. And at my clumsy best, I lost my wallet. I am one of those travellers who keeps all their cards in the same wallet 😀
Life wasn't easy after that. @sharmasupriya helped me with cash, she left Vienna two days before me. To add to me woes, I was not allowed to board my flight as my RT PCR results never came!! And I had to book return flight again for the next day. Had to test again
Anyway, more nightmares and finally I reached back Bengaluru. A few days later, I noticed a man called Omer commenting on random photos on my Insta account saying 'I found your wallet'. When I checked, he had been messaging me on insta and Fb
But I had never checked the message folder. The poor man had replied to every Insta story of mine saying 'i found your wallet'. Finally, I replied. Omer works in a mosque in Vienna and has handed over my wallet to a friend 😀
Thank you Omer! And here is a pic of my lost and found wallet
Poor Omer

Hello! What is fake news here?
You went there.
Said sorry that numbers leaked, people harassed and said you will find who leaked numbers. 
You said you read a list which was given to you.
You said 'being shown as a conspiracy against Muslims'

How do I know? I have the audio.
There is only one issue with the TNM story. We said Tejasvi Surya said he isn't 'communal or casteist'. In the 15 min audio, it is not there. Maybe it was there in a part of the speech we missed. However, if you didn't say that, sorry for attributing it.
Your office told my reporter that he never spoke or apologised to the 16 Muslims (see line below headline). That's exactly what we said too. Thanks. (Surprise over)

As far as oxygen goes, there is good news and bad news for Tamil Nadu. Good news. The state is using 400 tonnes per day. Though it produces 400 tonnes, some quantity is given to states like Telangana, Kerala, Andhra. Kerala gives to TN, (I think Andhra too)
So in yesterday's DPIIT meeting Kerala said they will continue to give 40 MT to TN till Sterlite is operational next week. TN gives from St Gobain plant to Kochi, this will also continue for now y
Telangana gets 40 MT from Sriperumbudur in Tamil Nadu, they have said they don't need it now. But an official order has to come from union govt allowing TN to use this and not divert elsewhere.

Have done an investigation into the deaths in Bengaluru. However, I have to add here that the work done by people in these crematoriums and by those in the BBMP is tremendous. However, if the deaths were being undercounted due to a chink in the system, it has to be addressed
This is the story, we went to 7 crematoriums, punched in data. This is what we found thenewsminute.com/article/tnm-in…
please go to the end of the story, and see the byline mentioned. haha
