This parrot loves children
Date: October 1
We’ve heard about children loving parrots.
But here’s one that loves kids.
A parrot that lives in the Sharda Balgram forest in Gwalior has developed a unique friendship with the students of a nearby school.
The children say the parrot comes to visit them every day when they reach school.
It sits on their shoulders or heads and plays with them.
Deepak Bedi, the superintendent of the Ram Krishna Vidya Mandir School, said, “As the children reach school, the parrot flies over the hills and joins them on their way to the hostel.
“It has been visiting them for a long time. In the hostel, it plays with the students and shares their food.”
The K9-Vajra in action!

K9-Vajra, the self-propelled howitzers, showcased India’s military might in the forward area in eastern Ladakh.
They have been deployed at the India-China border to boost the Indian Army’s firepower.
Look! It’s a drone… delivering COVID vaccines
Date: October 4
Location: Bishnupur, Manipur
The coronavirus has brought with it many unexpected challenges.
As has the vaccination drive.
One of the most difficult problems has been getting the vaccine to areas that are not easily accessible.
In an attempt to solve this problem, ICMR recently deployed a drone to deliver vaccines from the Bishnupur District Hospital to Karang island in Loktak Lake, Manipur.
Using drones is one way for India to increase its immunisation coverage area by transporting vaccines to remote and hilly regions.

Thousands of Siberian birds — of different species — flock here to escape the harsh winter of their homeland.
