You have to wonder how the celebrations are organised to make sure that the events do not become COVID-19 super-spreaders.

They organized election rallies in Bihar recently in which literally thousands of people gathered together (that too without masks or social distancing) and yet, the state with population of 130 million (and one of the poorest) is still reporting less than 800 cases a day, after doing 125k tests a day (90% of which are Rapid Antigen). It's called data fudging. ;)

New Commemorative 2020: Centenary of Lucknow University

Notification for this coin was issued, and it looks like the coin could depict the university building and not the university logo. I'm not fully certain though.

Bimat sir: could you please help update the subject of this topic to 'New Commemorative 2020: Centenary of Lucknow University'? Thanks.
