Faridkot: In view of the increasing stray animal menace in the region, the Roving Animals' Society, an NGO in Faridkot, has started a campaign to provide shelter, food and medical facilities to the abandoned animals. In cooperation with the district administration, the NGO released a postal stamp in support of stray animals on Sunday. Earlier, the NGO had approached the state government and Maneka Gandhi about the poor working condition of the veterinary clinics in the area. It had suggested two options to the district administration — of handing over the clinics to the NGO and of letting them make a veterinary hospital themselves.

Punjabi author's novel in KU curriculum

Chandigarh: Acclaimed Punjabi writer Ninder Ghugianvi has got a rare honour, with the Kurukshetra University in Haryana including his novel 'Judge da Ardali' in its curriculum for undergraduate classes. A prolific author, Ghugianvi has 49 books to his credit. His literary works are subject of 10 PhDs in different universities, a unique achievement for a person who could not even pass matriculation due to his humble origins. His books have been translated in several languages, including Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil, Bengali and English. Ghugianvi had written the novel 'Judge da Ardali' in the mid 1990s when he worked as an orderly of a judge in Patiala. In 2005, a feature film was also made on the book.

Bumpy road to corridor opening

Dera Baba Nanak: A cloud of uncertainty hangs over the 4.6-km Kartarpur Corridor. On Thursday, former Union Minister Vijay Sampla tweeted that the passage would be re-opened on November 27. However, there is no official confirmation yet. Officials of the Land Ports Authority of India, the Central agency that manages the Integrated Check Post, and the Batala police, one of the agencies engaged in providing security, are confused. A senior BSF official said even his department had not received any official communication from the Ministry of Home Affairs, which has the final say in its operations. Sources said days after Sampla's tweet went viral, he backtracked, saying he had just quoted media reports.
