The holy month of Ramadan is in its final few days this year before Muslims around the world wait for another long year to observe a month-long fasting. On Monday evening, UAE and many other countries declared Eid al-Fitr to be celebrated on Tuesday, June 4. But some countries will celebrate Eid the next day due to moon sighting in respective locations.India is one of the few countries that will observe Eid al-Fitr a day after Saudi Arabia and other countries in the west mark the end of Ramadan. Traditionally, Eid in India is celebrated a day after it Saudi Arabia, which means Eid al-Fitr 2019 will be celebrated in India on Wednesday, June 5.Traditions could change when a practical equation comes into play. Eid al-Fitr is the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal. Like Ramadan begins with the sighting of the new moon, Eid al-Fitr will also be confirmed only when the crescent is sighted in India. Even though the moon was sighted in Saudi, UAE and many other countries, it is not necessary that the crescent will be seen in India on Tuesday evening to declare Eid on Wednesday, June 5. When is Eid 2019 in India?ReutersThere is an offset chance that Eid could fall on Thursday, June 6, in India if the moon isn’t sighted on Tuesday and the Hilal Committee declares Eid to be celebrated on Wednesday. Even though it is highly unlikely, it is still a possibility, which is why we recommend Muslims in India to wait for the Islamic committee to confirm the same or try looking for the moon in the evening.As per astronomical predictions, the crescent will be sighted in India on Tuesday evening, which would mean Eid al-Fitr will be celebrated on Wednesday. Unlike many Muslim countries, which declare multiple days official holidays on the occasion of Eid, Indians get one-day official holiday on Wednesday. You can expect government offices and banks to be closed on this day.

He took to his Instagram handle to share a collage of the two along with a caption that read, “Miss you lots already Ami Aschi!” To which Bipasha replied, “I know my love ❤️”Later, Bipasha too shared the same picture on social media and said, “Miss you already … come back soonly ❤️ #smissyou #monkeylove #cuddlepumpkin #cutiepatootie #papabumba” Aren’t just too cute?”Meanwhile, in the upcoming episodes of Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, Mr Bajaj’s entry will create havoc in Anurag and Prerna’s lives. Although it is known that Prerna, who is excited to marry Anurag, will end up tying the knot with Mr Bajaj, it will be interesting to see how things turn up. Fans are also eagerly waiting to find out what’s in store for them in the Switzerland sequence.Coming to Karan, in a recent interview with Indian Express, he was asked if he had any second thoughts on playing an older character with salt and pepper look, the actor said that he would’ve played Mr Bajaj even if he was 300-year-old.When asked if he followed Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 and what he his views were of Erica Fernandes and Parth Samthaan as Prerna and Anurag, Karan said, “I did follow it in the beginning, it’s Kasautii after all. And now I have watched a lot of recent episodes. I think both Parth and Erica are absolutely brilliant. They look great as Anurag and Prerna. They have added a lot to the character and are doing an amazing job. No one can touch Shweta Tiwari’s work but from what I have seen, the actors are lovable and doing awesome.”
Kolkata: The biggest challenge before India is its unequal development of the country and the only way it can be addressed is by promoting equilibrium in society, Piyush Goyal, Union minister for Railways, Coal, Finance & Corporate Affairs, said on Monday.”Mutual trust and consensus is a key area for ensuring success of GST in a federal structure like India”, he said.Speaking at an exclusive interactive session organised by the Indian Chamber of Commerce at a city hotel, Goyal elaborated on the “Vision for 2022” for India and the role that all sections of the society, including industry and industry associations, can play in fructifying the objective of attaining development for all.

Also Read – Naihati: 10 councillors return to TMC from BJPFocussing on the rapid development witnessed in India over the past 4 years of the Modi regime, Goyal termed the single most important factor of change as the “change in mindset,” which has led to monumental changes in infrastructure, connectivity, macro economy and human capital development in the country, to name a few.He spoke on the important changes being brought about in energy efficiency, distribution and transmission in the power sector in India. He spoke of the government’s commitment to provide rural electrification and ensure availability of LPG and subsequently solar-powered cookers for all households in the country, including the remotest corners.Goyal reiterated that augmented MSP for farm produce would not impact the fiscal deficit, as defaults on loans would have directly led to increased NPAs and affected billions of people engaged in farming in the country.Shashwat Goenka, president, Indian Chamber of Commerce, gave the welcome address, calling Goyal a “thought provoking and dynamic leader”.Rudra Chatterjee, senior vice-president, Indian Chamber of Commerce, offered the formal vote of thanks.
