Ludhiana, May 12, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Expressing serious concern over the alarming rate of deaths in Ludhiana due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Deputy Commissioner Varinder Kumar Sharma on Wednesday said that 168 people have lost their lives in the last seven days, 24 deaths per day in Ludhiana and blamed casual and careless behaviour of some people are contributing to the rapid surge in cases.

Interacting with people in his weekly Facebook live session on the official page of DPRO Ludhiana, the Deputy Commissioner said that those people who are still not obeying the Covid appropriate behaviour must think about the families of 168 persons who died from May 7 to May 12.

“I am really worried and pained over the crowding of some people during relaxation timings in Ludhiana”, Sharma said and added this irresponsibility has been proving fatal for others.

Deputy Commissioner Varinder Kumar Sharma said that all of us should learn from history especially the time of the outbreak of Spanish flu and plague 100 years ago and how our forefathers maintained isolation during their toughest time and we are alive because of their seriousness towards the guidelines of the governments at that period.

He said that now we all must ensure meticulous adoption of proper isolation in our daily routine to contain the surge and secure the future.

Answering the queries of people regarding the difference in relaxation timings of Jalandhar and Ludhiana, he said that the situation in Ludhiana is more serious and completely different than the Jalandhar. He said that Jalandhar has already witnessed a peak and cases are gradually on down there.

He said that Ludhiana is a bigger and most populated district of the state and its comparison with other districts completely unwarranted.

Five yoga suggestions to help you breathe easy

New Delhi, June 17, 2021 (Yes Punjab) Yoga is often mistaken as an 'exercise' that only caters to the body. But the most important thing we forget, is that the central dogma of yoga is breath. Life is breath. "We breathe in oxygen and release carbon dioxide, it's simple biology," is what some said. But breathing is a very powerful...
