With the arrest of two persons, the Punjab police on Thursday claimed to have busted a module of Babbar Khalsa International (BKI), an outfit backed by Pakistan’s ISI. Jagdev Singh and Ravinderpal Singh were allegedly arranging funds and weapons for the sleeper cells of the banned group on the directives of Kulwinderjit Singh alias Khanpuriya, currently in Malaysia. Police had received a specific input that Kulwinderjit Singh, along with his associates, had planned to target leaders of a specific community to spread terror and disturb communal harmony in the State. Kulwinderjit Singh was involved in terrorist activities and had shifted to Malaysia in January 2019.
(Photos by Sue Kirsch text by Jesse F.) September 7, 2018Photos from the last few days and nights, of a Peruvian Apple Cactus Cereus Peruvianus in bloom. The first one actually bloomed during the full moon night and started shriveling during the late morning. The Peruvian apple cactus, is a large, erect, thorny columnar cactus found in South America as well as the nearby ABC Islands of the Dutch Caribbean. We have two of these cactuses in the cactus gardens behind EC Unit 9 and 10. They were bought during the 2017 FORM Arcosanti event by SOLANGE, with a lot of other plants that were to be used as backdrop during her performance. All of the plants were donated and planted in different places all over the site. The photos are of the evening before the first bloom with just the bud, the night bloom, still blooming in the early morning [with a bee],then the next evening with the second bud opening and blooming, while the first flower is already shriveled up.The cycles of life, so beautiful and sometimes so short. Who know what we might miss if we look away for just a day or two. And thanks as always for checking in on us!
