A classroom in a government primary school apparently turned into a party hotspot in Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh, on the night of Raksha Bandhan on Monday, a school holiday. In a video (above) circulating the internet, the locals attending the party can be seen showering money on two women dancing to loud music on a makeshift dance floor made out of classroom desks, in a setting resembling a dance bar. The event, reportedly organised by the village head Ramkesh Yadav’s family to celebrate his son’s birthday, was attended by 24 village heads of the surrounding areas. One of them can be seen following the dance moves of the women against the backdrop of a school blackboard.

Yadav had reportedly taken the keys of the building from the school principal to organise the party. When the teachers reached the school on Thursday, they found the premises littered. “Assistant teacher Ashok Kumar informed me that village head Ramkesh Yadav organised a dance party on school premises. It is a very serious and highly objectionable move. The BEO (Block Education Officer) has been asked to prepare a detailed report in the matter,” Primary Education officer Praveen Kumar Tiwari said.

While Yadav accepted that a party had been organised, he denied attending it.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
