The buzz created by Akshay Kumar's 'Padman' seems to have taken the shape of a hygiene revolution. Inspired by the film, Yuva Sena leader Purvesh Sarnaik, like scores of other activists across the country, has also aided the movement to spread awareness about menstrual hygiene by distributing free sanitary pads to women in Yeoor, a tribal-dominated village in Thane. The distribution program was undertaken under the aegis of the Vihang Chairitable Trust on the occasion of International Women’s Day.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be inclined towards deep introspection. You will realise that it is important to understand your inner self. However, Ganesha says spontaneity is equally vital, and playing with children is a very good way to be spontaneous. Today, you should refrain from taking major decisions of any kind without consulting the right people.
