community after the August 5 shooting. A gunman killed six people attending Sunday services before killing himself. The gunman was associated with white supremacists and neo-Nazi groups. Investigators say they may never know for certain what prompted his attack. The Sikh community welcomed the White House announcement as a great gesture. It is great to hear that the First Lady will be comforting the families devastated by the violence in the gurdwara, the chairman of the Sikh Council, Rajwant Singh, said

The Met office has revised its prediction following decent rain on Monday morning, saying the cloud cover and light to moderate rain are likely to continue for at least the next 48 hours. The weatherman had earlier predicted that the rain would dry up in the city and its adjoining areas for a couple of days from the start of the week. The showers dragged down the day’s maximum temperature four notches below normal to 28.3 degrees Celsius, from Sunday’s 33. “We were expecting the rain the city had been receiving for the past couple of days to stop from Monday as there was no cyclonic circulation and the monsoon trough was moving away from the city. But the trough got stronger, resulting in the rain,” said an official of the Alipore weather office. The trough is passing through Daltanganj in Jharkhand, Bhagalpur in Bihar and the central part of Bengal. “The monsoon trough now is not very close to Calcutta but it has gained in strength, resulting in Monday morning’s shower in the city,” the official said.
