Clashes had broken out outside a polling station in Sitalkuchi in Cooch Behar with bombs being hurled. TMC supporters claimed the four dead people were the party's activists, who had been shot dead by Central paramilitary personnel. The Election Commission claimed the security forces were forced to open fire to control massive mobilisation of miscreants in polling booths. "They were forced to fire as otherwise the booths would be looted. CAPF was challenged by equal force from miscreants' side. Many jawans got injured," said an Election Commission official. PTI identified the Central force as CISF. "As per preliminary reports, four persons were killed as CISF personnel opened fire after coming under attack in a village. A scuffle took place and locals gheraoed them and attempted to snatch their rifles, following which the central forces opened fire. Further details are awaited," a police official said. The number of deaths could rise further as four people are fighting for their lives in hospital and they are critical. A mob of around 400 people attacked the Central forces. The BJP alleged the mob attack was instigated by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who had urged people to "resist" Central forces from allegedly interfering in the polls.

Hours after the death of four people in the firing by central forces at Sitalkuch in Cooch Behar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressing condolences over the deaths said that inciting people against the central forces and creating hindrances in the poll process won't be able to save you Didi (Mamata). Modi said this while addressing a rally at Jalpaiguri in North Bengal on Saturday. "My condolences are with their family members" Modi said in Jalpaiguri adding that "This violence, inciting people against the central forces and creating hindrances in the poll process won't be able to save you didi (Mamata). I urge the ECI to take stern action against the guilty in the Cooch Behar case," he added. Though police claimed that the central forces opened fire in self-defence, the Election Commission has adjourned the polling process in the booth and sought a report from the special police observer and CEO Ariz Aftab by Saturday evening. The final decision regarding the incident will be taken after the commission examines the report. Referring to the cut money issue and alleged extortion by the Trinamool Congress leaders the Prime Minister said that Didi and her goons have become jittery seeing the people's support for the BJP. Seeing her rule coming to an end, "Didi has stooped to this level. But I would like to make it clear to the TMC that this won't work in Bengal," Modi said. Referring to Mamata Banerjee's recent comments on central forces for which she was served a notice by the Election Commission, Modi at his Siliguri rally said, "Can you imagine a head of the state is giving training to the voters to gherao central forces?" 87% new Covid deaths from 10 states BJP SHARES AUDIO CHAT OF PRASHANT KISHOR PRAISING PM KOLKATA, April 10 (IANS) A political controversy erupted in West Bengal during the fourth phase of the elections when BJP's IT cell released an audio tape of Trinamool' election strategist Prashant Kishor where he was heard saying a 'ClubHouse' chat that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is hugely popular in West Bengal and this is one of the factors that will decide which party sweeps the state.

INDIAN ANIMAL rights and vegan activists across the country will use the Twitter platform to raise awareness about veganism on April 8. One of the key themes for the vegan movement in India is laws around exploitation of farm animals, said an organiser. Adding that most people in India are still unaware about the vegan movement or veganism, which is often described as a diet in popular parlance, Amjor Chandran, one of the organisers of Vegan India Movement, says: "It's not a diet, but a social justice movement for animals to dismantle speciesism. Speciesism is the human-held belief that all other animal species are inferior. Speciesist thinking involves considering animals--who have their own desires, needs, and complex lives--as means to human ends. This supremacist line of 'reasoning' is used to defend treating other living, feeling beings as property, objects, or even ingredients. It's a bias rooted in denying others their own agency, interests, and self-worth, often for personal gain." A tweetathon event will be organised by the Vegan India Movement, as an initiative of grassroots vegan activists in India across the country to raise awareness about animal rights and veganism. "I am much healthier and happier knowing no animal had to suffer for my food. I don't drink cow's milk and don't eat meat because no one should suffer for our choices," says actor Mallika Sherawat. "I became vegan three years back simply because I chose to live out of my food choices and variety that I had. I did not want to hurt any living species for my greed on a food plate and saw that logically this gave me sounder sleep, healthier body and I was making a difference to the environment, and climate change. Biggest was my compassion for the sufferings and cruelty meted to the animals," says Sangeeta S Bahl, who climbed Everest at the age of 53 and holds the title of the Oldest Everester in India. "Veganism is the fastest growing social justice movement of our time. Vegans abstain from causing intentional harm towards animals and do not support industries that exploit animals. Vegans abstain from consuming meat, eggs, honey, milk derived from animals, dairy products, products tested on animals, and are also against using animals for entertainment, clothing, or any other purpose," adds Amjor. "While the earth heaves under the weight of our greed, and our resources run out, we have been presented an opportunity of a lifetime. To rethink. Today we have a choice to change the way we eat, to change the way we live. No taste is worth our freedom. Or theirs," opines singer Anushka Manchanda. Adds Acharya Prashant: "Veganism is the strongest name for compassion." Previously, the Vegan India Movement has also organised campaigns, mainly online in recent times, on this issue. In the tweetathon, members of the movement will use hashtags #GoVegan and #EndSpeciesism in an endeavour to make people understand the message and urge them to abstain from consuming animal products which inflicts suffering on innocent animals.

"It is important to achieve a healthy work-life balance in in the workplace and remind us of the dual-burden working women face as a result of their unpaid work as caregivers at home," Michael added. The study also found that order to live a fulfilled life. But there are moments in life when you have to finish certain deadlines and cannot avoid spending a lot of time on your desk," says Beenu Rajpoot, noted filmmaker and a Fit India Champion. The fitness expert has these suggestions for those busy hours that will not only nourish your body and mind, but also increase overall productivity: Between emails, meetings and calls, try to take a stroll even for a few minutes to reset your body and brain. A little bit of movement during those long sitting hours will go a long way to ensure that your body and joints do not become too stiff by sitting. Check your breath during intervals. Take a few long breaths engaging your abdominals to ensure that your body is getting enough oxygen. Learn some Pranayama techniques to recreate yourself quickly so that you can maintain a constant energy level throughout the long span of desk sitting. Remember to do a few neck and shoulder stretches while on your desk to avoid neck pain or back pain later. It will also help in keeping your posture upright. Add useful stretches from your yoga class to these intervals. Choose the appropriate ergonomic chair and table in order to maintain a good posture while sitting for long hours. Some of the important factors to be considered are -- shape of the chair, height of the chair, height of the table, lumbar support in the chair, among others. Ensure that your chair has some kind of lumbar support. Lumbar support will protect your lumbar spine from pressures of excessive flexion during long sitting hours. It is also important to choose a chair where you can adjust the height of the chair so that you can adjust its height vis-a-vis your table. It will be good for your mid-upper back and shoulders. Often people who ignore this advice can develop health conditions like scoliosis and rounded shoulders. Keep drinking water during a long shift. It's quite common that people under pressure keep suppressing their thirst subconsciously that makes them dehydrated. Remember to keep sipping the water every hour or so to keep your body rich in fluids that will improve the circulation and will keep your blood pres- sure in check, apart from many other benefits of drinking water. Decorate your space nicely and keep it clean, organised and minimal. Avoid too much clutter around in your space. Too much physical clutter affects the states of your mind, too. Practice the yogic principle of 'Aparigraha' or minimalism to keep your space, physical as well as men- tal, free. Ensure that you are getting some sun during the day. It will not only enrich your Vitamin D levels but also give a big boost to your immune system. It is very common among the big cities in India that people don't get enough Vitamin D as they are not exposed to the sunlight often. Lack of exposure to the sunlight leads to Vitamin D deficiency that is often linked to other health issues. Gives your eyes some rest in between after every half an hour or so by doing a simple yoga technique of palming. Rub your palms together and just cover your eyes with your warm palms. Your eyes will feel energised immediately.

ANI Photo/IPL Twitter STRESS LINKED TO CORONARY HEART DISEASE IN WOMEN NEW YORK: Psychosocial stress -- typically resulting from difficulty coping with challenging environments -may work synergistically to put women at higher risk of developing coronary heart disease, a new study suggests. The findings indicate that the effects of job strain and social strain -- the negative aspect of social relationships -- on women is a powerful one-two punch.

Older adults who received positive airway pressure therapy prescribed for obstructive sleep apnea may be less likely to develop Alzheimer's disease and other kinds of dementia, new research suggests. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition in which the upper airway collapses repeatedly throughout the night, preventing normal breathing during sleep. OSA is associated with a variety of other neurological and cardiovascular condi- tions, and many older adults are at high risk for OSA. "We found a significant association between positive airway pressure use and lower risk of Alzheimer's and other types of dementia over three years, suggesting that positive airway pressure may be protective against dementia risk in people with OSA," said lead author Galit Levi Dunietz, Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan. For the study, published in the journal Sleep, the research team analyzed Medicare claims of more than 50,000 Medicare beneficiaries ages 65 and older who had been diagnosed with OSA.
