The Nabha Circle Education office has issued instructions to change school timings only for Wednesday on account of solar eclipse. Disclosing this Amarjit Kaur,District Education Officer (Secondary),Ludhiana,said,”We got a telephonic message from the circle directing us to open schools from 9 am to 2 pm due to solar eclipse.”

She said,”As we got the order around 4:30 pm,city schools had closed for the day by then but I have personally informed many school principals.”

Protesting the move,Dalbir Katani,head of the Taraksheel Society,Ludhiana,said,”It is ridiculous that the government has issued these instructions thereby encouraging superstitions. The government should follow the logical approach as we all are living in the modern times.”
