Mourning for powerlifters deaths

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

At this time of the year, Delhi fog disrupts the three modes of transport; rail, road and airways. Both rail and airway traffic is either cancelled or delayed for unduly long period. But in case of vehicular traffic, despite dense fog, the road users try their luck in the midst of the poor visibility and meet their own end through risky driving. In a bad day for Indian sports, five national level weightlifters were killed, including a world champion, when the car in which they were travelling met with a fatal accident in the dense early morning fog. The sixth one is battling for life. These boxers were near Alipur village and on the way to Murthal to celebrate the birthday of one of their colleagues when the mishap took place. The birthday boy also died in that gruesome accident. It is advisable not to drive any vehicle, when there is heavy rain or fog obstructing the visibility of the driver because of the natural phenomena. It is unfortunate that the weightlifters took a great risk in driving in dense fog and the mishap took place in a car crash. Sports fraternity mourn the death of the weightlifters in a freak accident.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)It is advisable to continue in your present work even if things move slowly. You may feel restless and uneasy but remain calm. Your benefits come from those close to you. You will find that you will do well with consistent hard work. Try not to get upset by delays. In marital relationships keep calm for there could be a clash of opinion over minor issues. Stay away from parties or outings.
