‘Among Us’ anyone?

By: Shreya Mishra

In this edition of ‘In the News,’ Shreya checks out Barack Obama’s new book, the new online rage for the teens ‘Among Us’ and an Indian web series that has just created history. Dive right in!

A Promised Land

We all know about Barack Obama, the distinguished and might I say the coolest former President of the United States of America (2009-2017). Well, did you know that he is an author too?

His new book, ‘A Promised Land’, is a memoir written by the former president himself. The book, he said, is an honest portrayal of his term as a president and everything he dealt with during that time.

The book was published on 17 November 2020 is said to be the first in a series of two and concludes with the killing of Osama Bin Laden in the year 2011.

All the reviews say it is very well-written and captures his life as is. It’s available online and we recommend it for an excellent good quarantine/winter read! 

New gaming storm 

Well, everybody was sad when Pubg got banned but teenagers didn’t take a lot of time to find something new to obsess over. The game - Among Us - is the new rage and is taking the gaming world by a storm.

The game has been gaining constant popularity ever since the government took away Pubg from the budding gamers in our country. 

Among Us is a game of imposters and secrets and similar to Pubg, people connect over it from all over the country through the voice chat app. I’ve even seen influencers on social media playing this game with their fans and people making new friends through them. There are YouTube channels and meme pages dedicated to this game and it’s the new form of entertainment for the teenagers.

But let us remind you. You have to be careful since it is an online game and you never know who’s on the other side of the screen. Be careful not to share personal information with someone new. And if you experience or witness bullying in any form, get help from an adult.

India’s first Emmy! 

The Indian web series. Delhi Crime has created history by winning the super prestigious International Emmy Award for best drama series this year.

The awards were held virtually and the cast and crew were ecstatic on hearing the announcement. 

The Netflix original series is based on the aftermath of the heart-wrenching 2012 Delhi gang rape case. The series did well and was widely appreciated by audiences in India and winning the International Emmy is just the final cherry on the top.

This is India's first international Emmy and we couldn’t be prouder!
