The CM of Karnataka slams Yogi Adityanath, the CM of UP
The Chief Ministers are setting a new record. No, not in making amazing new developments and competing against each other. I’m sure you guessed that by now.
Siddaramaiah, the Congress Chief Minister, slammed the BJP Chief Minister- Yogi Adityanath. He stated that he has nothing to learn from Yogi as the former “is a follower of Godse, running a ‘jungle raj’ in UP.” We wonder what made him pass these remarks!
No Burp is more irritating than this SBI circular
SBI outranked any other organization with its phenomenal creativity in controlling employees. After 71 years of Independence, India, as a Nation state is still trying to form its own identity, independent of its colonial past. While the Indian government tirelessly is working to take India towards a “glorified past”, a few organizations show no sign of using rational thought before they pass on ridiculous circulars.
SBI is known for its employee benefits, however, a recent circular released to its employees asks them to stop burping as it is irritating. Burping, farting, yawning, sweating, excreting are a natural phenomenon that our biology can’t and must not control. This is no Art of Living class but is simply common sense. All organizations, whether public or private must keep in mind that human freedom and liberty must be respected. Clearly, SBI crossed a line here.

State relief funds are used in emergencies when disasters hit the country. In the absence of sufficient funds in the State, the National Disaster relief fund releases money to the state.
Why do you hate Dark Skin, Oh Patanjali!?
Dark skin is officially a Skin ailment. No, allindiajobs.in does not think so; Patanjali does. Patanjali Ltd., which has become a high- earning ayurvedic brand across the world. The brand rightfully faced outlash from masses when it created a video showing a girl feeling insecure and ugly due to her dark skin.
The beauty industry doesn’t understand the class and caste biases that these advertisements imply. Prolonged sun exposure for generations causes excessive melanin creation in the skin. The classes that toiled hard under the sun might have darker skin compared to their higher caste counterparts due to the manner of the work they were subjected to for generations. This is a genetic trait and publicizing dark skin as an ugly trait is therefore wrong.
In a pamphlet that it released cataloging its products, Patanjali officially declared Dark skin as a skin ailment. The advertisement read: “Possesses the benefits of Wheat germ oil… … which are extremely beneficial for treating skin ailments like dry skin, dark complexion, and wrinkles.”
