City’s hotel scene sizzles as wedding bells ring loud

The hospitality industry in Lucknow, India, is experiencing a strong comeback as hotels are running at full occupancy due to a surge in weddings and events. The city has seen a series of big events this year, including IPL matches and the Cricket World Cup, and about 50,000 weddings are planned in the near future. The industry is benefiting not only from increased hotel bookings but also from the demand for services such as brass bands and caterers. The ongoing wedding season and a series of events until February are expected to generate significant revenue for the sector.

7 Kashmiri students booked under UAPA: Mehbooba, Omar condemn police action

The Jammu and Kashmir Police on November 20 booked seven Kashmiri students of Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology (SKUAST) under the stringent Act for allegedly raising pro-Pakistan slogans during a confrontation with students from outside the union territory over the cricket World Cup final between India and Australia.

The resentment has escalated against police’s booking of seven Kashmiri students under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) with political leaders blaming government for putting unprecedented curbs on the freedom of expression. National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah said the move goes against the assurance given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi who had announced in 2021 that it was time to end ‘Dilli ki duri’ as well as ‘Dil ki duri’ with Jammu and Kashmir.
