Nathu La Pass opens for Kailash-Manasarovar pilgrims, more than a half-century after China closed the historic pass on the Sikkim-Tibet border. This will be the second route for the Kailash-Manasarovar Yatra and will allow more Indians to undertake the pilgrimage. The move follows a bilateral agreement signed on September 18 last year.

Cricket fans of the subcontinent, stay tuned. The first match in the three-game ODI series between India and Bangladesh will start rolling in Dhaka. MS Dhoni will lead India. The rain affected one-off test match between the two teams ended in a draw.

Jaipur will see rising ‘tempers and temperatures’ as the Lalit Modi row heats up further. In the wake of Modi's admission that Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje had helped him clear his visa papers, the Congress has planned a big a protest against Raje at 11 am.

Janet Yellen is likely to drop some hints about the US Federal Reserve’s interest rate regime for the year. Though a rate hike announcement is unlikely, the Fed is expected to take some calls that will help soften a potential market fall going ahead. A rate increase, if at all is announced, would end a more than six-year-long stretch of near-zero interest rates.
