Donald Trump’s new ban

US president Donald Trump has made a rule that citizens from 7 countries – Libya, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, Iraq and Iran – cannot travel to the USA for the next 90 days. People in the US have been lining the streets and even airports in protest.

Dealing with open defecation: There is a district collector in Jaisalmer, Sudhir Sharma, who has started a rather unique scheme. To encourage families to use toilets, he will give them 2500 rupees a month. He hopes that once they get used to the lavatories, they won’t want to use open areas again.

Miss France is the new Miss Universe

This year’s competition was held in Manila, in the Philippines, on Monday, with 86 countries participating. The second place went to Miss Haiti, and second runner up to Miss Columbia.

Never too late to learn something new

A 57 year old grandmother just did her arangettam in Kathakali. Gigi Sarat of Kochi began learning the dance at age 51. Very inspiring indeed.

That’s it for today, kids. Thank you for listening. I hope you’ll watch out for me at 5 pm tomorrow too. Remember, it’s so important to know what’s going on in the world around you.
