Super Blood Wolf Moon: Flat-Earthers come up with their own model to explain it

If we wanted to insult someone who, along with us, was born in the 20th century, the easiest way to do it was to brand him or her as someone who still believed that the Earth was flat.

Another "Khomeini" is being born in South Asia clearly with much deeper hatred towards the Western world.

Retail Apocalypse: Suffering of store chains to continue as Christmas sales did not buckle the trend

Struggling Store Chains in Britain that pinned their hopes on Christmas sales to revive their businesses do not seem to have seen the light at the end of the tunnel.

Also amongst Indians visiting Pasupatinath temple and those on their way to Kailash. It has brought back into focus the dark memories of India’s tryst with demonetization two years ago.
