India’s Express News Service reports:

Much to the amusement of students and teachers, a monkey sneaked into the campus of Jewish Girls’ School today and caused quite a stir. However, it also attacked a few students when they came near it. The incident occurred at 10.30 this morning. After watching its antics for some time the locals caught it by using a net. Later the simian was handed over to Park Street Police and is now being kept in a separate cell.

Who knew there was a Jewish girls’ school in Calcutta?

Campaigning door-to-door, he was surprised so many voters did not know who represented them! After his race ended slightly short of victory, he took advantage of his Master’s degree in Computer Technology and Political Science to build StateDemocracy.org, a website he launched in 2001 to connect citizens and lawmakers. His website’s motto encapsulated its mission:
