The subway train in Zhengzhou, a city in the central China, was approaching its next station when the floodwaters suddenly started to rise on the tracks. The passengers moved forward as the water levels are increasing. Many cars have been submerged. The water reached the passenger’s waists, then chests and finally their necks. Then the passengers called emergency services or relatives.

According to the official at least 25 died in and around Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan Province, including 12 people in the subway.

A few videos that are going viral online showed cars and even people being swept away in the floods. President Xi Jinping said on Wednesday that there had been “significant loss of life and damage to property”.

Many dams and reservoirs have exceeded their alert levels, and soldiers have been mobilised to divert rivers that have overflowed their banks. Flights and trains have also been suspended in various districts of Henan.

Flooding was reported in multiple cities and villages, with residents pleading for help on WeChat and Weibo, two of China’s most popular social media platforms. Floodwaters inundated hundreds of homes in Gongyi, displacing at least 20,000 people, while mudslides washed away roads and cut off some villages.

A large group of women raised slogans against Pakistan and protests took place on the streets of Kabul on Tuesday. Several journalists who were covering the protest were arrested and now photos of Afghan journos who were reporting on the Kabul protests were thrashed by the Taliban.

In a tweet, American journalist Marcus Yam shared a photo of the two journalists showing injuries all over the body. Yam wrote, “Painful. Afghan journalists from Nemat Naqdi & Taqi Daryabi display wounds sustained from Taliban torture & beating while in custody after they were arrested for reporting on a women’s rally in Kabul.”

According to the TOLO news, the Taliban detained its cameraperson Wahid Ahmadi and confiscated his camera. It is said that Taliban forces prevented some journalists from filming the protest.

According to Etilaatroz, Daryabi and Naqdi – a video editor and a reporter who was covering the protest led by women in the Kart-e-Char area of western Kabul on Tuesday, were abducted by the Taliban and taken to different rooms and thrashed and tortured.

“We were shouting that we are journalists. But they didn’t care,” Mr Naqdi was quoted by the LA Times, “I thought they were going to kill me. . .They kept on ridiculing us…” The Taliban also stopped the journalists from clicking the pictures of the protesting women.

According to the reports, three other journalists, including the local head of Euronews, a pan-European TV news network headquartered in France have been abducted.

Now, a video of Sri Lankan singer Yohani Diloka De Silva’s version of the song Manike Mage Hithe has gone viral on social media and most of the netizens are using the background music for doing the reels. The song, Manike Mage Hithe is a superhit on Instagram. Now, a video of an IndiGo air hostess dancing to Manike Mage Hithe’s song on the empty flight is going viral on social media platforms and it was widely shared by many. The song has got more than 13 million views. In the video, one could see Aayat Urf Afreen dressed in uniform and is dancing to Manike Mage Hithe on the empty flight during a halt. She shared the video with the caption, “Long halts! Aur crew thoda sa dance na karein. Thanks to @jodianoorabh for these lovely steps.”

 

Manike Mage Hithe is a Sinhala song by Satheeshan Rathnayaka. The song went viral after Yohani’s version was released in the month of May. In just three months of the release of the song, it has got more than 91 million views on YouTube.

In an interview, when Yohani was asked about the song going viral online, she said that “We never thought that this would be such a hit. We never planned for it too – We simply did it because we wanted to create the song, and loved doing it. We enjoyed every bit of the project but never anticipated the kind of response that came along with it.”

To a question about how did it feel when Amitabh praised her on Twitter, she answered, “It was a really funny story. I was asleep, and my manager called me and told me, ‘Amitabh Bachchan has tweeted your song.’ Somehow, my mind didn’t register it and I went back to sleep. Then suddenly, when the realization hit me, I woke up and realized who he meant! It was a dream come true – and sometimes I feel as if I’m still dreaming. It’s surreal, but also so humble of him. I hope someday I can perform live in front of him.”
