On Thursday, Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi joined her son Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra in BJP-ruled Karnataka. Sonia Gandhi participated in a public event after a long gap due to her health. Joining Rahul Gandhi in Mandya, Sonia Gandhi walked for a short distance before getting into a car. After Vijayadashami, there will be Vijaya in Karnataka. We are proud that Sonia Gandhi has come to walk on the streets of Karnataka. We are coming to power in the state, and BJP is on the way to shutting its shop,” said Karnataka Congress chief DK Shivakumar. In the biggest Congress march, Rahul Gandhi plans to walk through 12 states and cover a distance of 3,570 km.

Sonia Gandhi is likely to address a rally in Ballary to launch the party’s campaign in Karnataka that will be voting for a new state government soon.

Swedish Scientist Svante Paabo Wins Nobel Prize in Medicine For His Astonishing Discovery on Human Evolution

Swedish Scientist Svante Paabo, son of 1982 Nobel Prize winner in medicine Sune Bergstrom, won the 2022 Nobel Prize in medicine for his astonishing discovery on human evolution. The Swedish scientist’s discovery proved that modern humans share DNA with extinct relatives Denisovans and Neanderthals. His important discovery also provided insights into our immune system and what makes us different from our cousins. The Nobel Committee, while announcing the Award, said that Svante Paabo’s sensational discovery hugely contributed to human evolution and also led to the revelation of a previously unknown hominin, Denisova. “Paabo and his team also surprisingly found that gene flow had occurred from Neanderthals to Homo sapiens, demonstrating that they had children together during periods of co-existence,” said Anna Wedell, chair of the Nobel Committee. Svante Paabo was born in 1955 in Stockholm, Sweden and currently serves as the Director of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig. The Nobel Prize announcements kicked off on Monday. The 2022 Nobel Peace Prize winner will be announced on Friday, and the economics award on October 10.
