From an overwhelming response to 'International Yoga Day' to a series of terror strikes across three countries killing more than 60 people, the past week also saw more than 1000 people dead on the streets of Pakistan due to surge in temperatures.
The week began with a suicide attack on Afghanistan parliament during session. The situation also remained mournful in Mumbai as hooch tragedy death toll crossed 100.
Monsoons seemed to be in no mood of being punctual. While floods in several Indian states sent people rushing towards safer areas, in Jammu and Kashmir, the continuous rainfall livened the memories of deadly September 2014 floods.
It was a week of loss too, as India lost two veterans of humanity and journalism.
