Last Updated: Mar 08, 2021, 04:21 PM IST
A starred question was raised by fellow RJD legislator Mohd Farooq and the reply by Rural Works Minister Jayant Raj apparently did not satisfy the opposition.
Chafed by the dressing down, Subodh Kumar whined, "I have respect for the chief minister but what I did is not without precedent.
An RJD MLC's attempt to ask an out-of-turn question inside the Bihar Legislative Council on Monday caused Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, also a member of the House, to momentarily shed his famed composure and react in anger. The leader of the House rose in his seat to reprimand MLC Subodh Kumar.

Artists say the Covid-19 pandemic has devastated their industry, leaving them in dire straits, and this has been compounded by a lack of fundings from the National Arts Council (NAC). 
Artist Shaeleen Tobin says the majority of those who applied have not been able to access the  R300 million-plus in support that was want to keep them performing. 
"People have signed contracts, now the NAC is trying to renege on those contracts," she says. 
"Of the people that have been paid...a grand total of no more than R30 million has been paid out," says Tobin.

Movies and documentaries about the history of the music and the people who made it can be found on television and online. The blues has survived much and will make it through this challenging time.
This week, here’s some of the activities coming up, with some extra attention on Memphis.

Tejashwi Yadav: Political novice who gave veterans a run for their money
Last Updated: Nov 11, 2020, 11:42 AM IST
Tejashwi Yadav may have failed to learn the textbook lessons at DPS, R K Puram, in the national capital but showed an uncanny knack of reading the mind of voters, like his more famous father, as he led the opposition Grand Alliance to an impressive performance in the polls winning 110 seats in the 243-member assembly.
Tejashwi Yadav
Patna: An avid cricketer whose career never really took off, a political greenhorn who got power on a silver platter but failed to keep it, a scion of Bihar's most powerful family who could not get past the 9th grade. That was Tejashwi Yadav until the 2020 assembly polls marked the coming of age of a politician who valiantly went down fighting an army of battle-hardened veterans.

Destination Relaxation Giveaway: Just Do A Staycation

Destination Relaxation Giveaway: Just Do A Staycation
At the time I'm writing this, our company is doing a "Destination Relaxation" giveaway with only a week left in the contest. This content still applies today.
The giveaway is worth $600, and actually comes in the form of a $200 gift card to and a Visa gift card worth $400.
I don't know if you missed the giveaway by the time you're reading this but I wanted to go over my thoughts on this type of giveaway and the general idea of taking breaks in the Fall.
Short answer: Yes
I don't want to upset my corporate overlords, but as this giveaway timed well? The contest ends on October 6th. but my initial thought is that it should have begun in the Spring and ended right before Summer so people could maybe plan a little vacation.
