Germaphobia, Sharmaji Namkeen, and Narrating the Ramayana: Here's what's trending on this week

This week, Aparna Andhare narrates the Ramayana through art. "Today is Ramanavmi, the ninth day of Chaitra, which celebrates the birth of the Hindu deity, Rama. There are several versions of the story of Rama, and Valmiki’s Ramayana is one of the most sophisticated," she writes.

Meanwhile, Shehla Rashid writes on the Pandemic and Germaphobia. "Germaphobia makes life hard. You are on a bus and someone just wiped their nose and then touched a seat railing or a handle for support, and you make a mental note not to touch that spot while trying to get up," she writes.
