रविवार को मैंने एक मूवी देखी ,मूवी देखते समय काफी रोई मैं ,देख के घर तो आ गयी पर आज दिन तक दिमाग वही घूम रहा है।मैंने तो सिर्फ एक नाट्य रूपांतर देखा है तब ये हाल है , पर जिन बच्चियों और औरतों के साथ ऐसा होता है उनके मन की स्थिती को समझना या बयां करना बहुत मुश्किल है।लेकिन न चाहते हुए भी ऐसा हर दिन होता है , क्या हमारी कोई ज़िम्मेदारी नही ??? हम भी तो इस समाज का हिस्सा है ....तो क्या डर कर चुप रह कर हम अपनी ज़िम्मेदारी पूरी कर रहे है ???हम बेटियों को कितना सिखाते हैं ....उनके कपड़ों से लेकर मर्दों के कितने पास या दूर रहना है वहां तक , थोड़ी बड़ी होने पर हम उन्हें उनके बाप भाई तक से सतर्क रहने को बोलते हैं। लेकिन क्या हम अपने बेटों को सिखाते हैं कि उन्हें स्त्रियों से कैसा बर्ताव करना चाहिए ?? जब पहली बार उन्हें खुले में शौच कराते हैं तो सोंचते हैं कि कितना गलत कर रहे हैं हम ???? खुले में लड़की हो या लड़का नही जाना चाहिए न , आगे जा कर ये ही बातें गलत रूप लेती हैं ।नही हम नही सोचतेे आम धारणा तो ये है "अरे ये तो लड़का है " इसी धारना से बढ़ावा मिलता है । क्या हम ये मुहिम नही शुरू कर सकते कि हम अपनी बेटियों के साथ साथ अपने बेटों को भी उस बारे मे शिक्षित करेंगे ???कृपया सोचिएगा जरूर ।।।।रेवा

We, the Innocent ............. by Dr. Navniit Gandhi
 Navniit Gandhi  
 17 February 2018  

Wash your utensils with this dish-cleaner and sparkle your relationships…There is saffron in the soap…There is chocolate in this shampoo… there are almonds in the face cream!Drink this tea and refresh your relationships…Drink this soft-drink and live without fear…What fools are we, at times!!!All along, some of us have wasted our time; many precious years of life, trying to find out how to lead a perfect life… Probably, you too must have spent hours, trying to understand relationships, love and life. How stupid we have been… All we could have done is to switch on the Television, and sit before it with total faith. Yes, with total faith in our advertisements!!! We could have had the keys to all that we ever wanted in life. The key to beauty; to success; to a happy family life; the key to popularity and the key to health and blossoming relationships—all could have been at our feet in a matter of a few hours… How very silly of us, that we work hard and undergo ordeals and struggles, to fulfil our aspirations!God, bless us. We know not how innocent we are! The noble companies and even nobler advertising agencies are crying hoarse, and trying to better our lives. And, we don’t take them seriously? Using music, Bollywood stars and attractive photography—they spend crores trying to make all our dreams come true, and we do not take the ads seriously?Didn’t they tell us…Spray this deodorant and girls will fall head-over-heels in love with you…Eat this cereal and your husband will start noticing you…Add this in your children’s milk and they will become great scientists!Use this fairness cream and the most handsome and eligible bachelor will be at your feet…If you drink a particular beverage daily, your Boss will be impressed and you could take a trophy home for outstanding performance…It is all so clearly stated. The world of TV Ads is a great teacher. Just sit down… relax… and carefully watch the ads. We can learn how to magically swirl ten mouth-watering dishes—one or two each for every family member and yet, not a drop of sweat shall we shed or a strand of hair move. How? Because the secret, as we would learn, would lay in the dish-washing soap!Have you not seen the ad which teaches us that if we use a particular washing-powder, husband and wives would love each other more? How? Because, the clothes would become softer and so would the hands of the lady….But, what if the washing powder is used by the maid? Would her husband love her more, or ours???? Women, take note of this puzzle!!!Oh no! How much time have we wasted trying to seriously think on some matters, whereas the solutions and lessons were all so very simple!Had we known this secret earlier, we would have had the pleasure of seeing our mothers always young, fresh and happy despite their daily laborious chores. We could have had friends drooling over our looks, and we could have made smarter choices!!! Our brain could have been sharper; our nails and hair glistening; our clothes smarter; our body odour captivating; our sleep peaceful; our taste buds rejuvenated and of course, our relationships, happier. How innocent we have been… Imagine, the key to freedom from pimples, wrinkles, and fine lines was just a remote away!Use this tooth paste-- dance and swirl and live happily thereafter…Take a loan from our bank and we will help you discover the real ‘you’…This toilet cleaner will sparkle your bathroom and your life…There are easy and readymade formulae for increasing the growth of the brain of our children… There are easy solutions for killing germs in ten seconds!! And then, our children would never fall ill even if they gulp pizzas or burgers daily. Wish we could have sat before the televisions with total faith…. We could have given our children filtered water (using modern complicated processes) and they could have topped in their respective classrooms.Are you one of those who were searching in vain for means to raise your self-esteem? Well, did you not know that with a certain brand of tea, courage and confidence comes; and with a certain soft-drink—come tumbling out clever and creative ideas? A certain can of paint is what it takes or perhaps, a bathroom-freshner to raise your esteem in the eyes of your neighbours… Ha, how easy it is, isn’t it?Watch the Advertisements for solutions to all your problems… for answers to all your questions!!! It is not too late.Ah, by the way—have you been looking for a way out to please your in-laws? Oh, ohhh…. All you had to do was prove your intelligence by using a particular mosquito coil, and pride would have surfaced in their eyes and they would have hugged you happily!!!

मानवीय आदर्शों की ज़रूरत

अभी वर्तमान में हमारे देश में जिस तेजी से असामाजिक गतिविधियां बढ़ रही हैं ; संभव है कि भारत भारत ना रह पाए, अपनी गरिमा खो दे । देश धीरे-धीरे आपसी कलह जैसे कैंसर का शिकार होते जा रहा है । देशभक्ति के रोज नए पैमाने तय किए जा रहे हैं । सुरक्षा प्रशासन के हाथों से निकलकर असामाजिक तत्वों तक पहुंच रही है । राष्ट्रवाद पर रोज नया संग्राम छिड़ रहा है । दो विभिन्न विचारधाराओं की लड़ाई व्यक्तिगत होते जा रही है । नफरतों की चिंगारियां फिजाओं में घुल-मिल रही है , जिसकी चपेत में ज्यादातर आज की युवा पीढ़ी आ रही है । ये ऐसा सबकुछ एक दो वर्षों में नहीं हुआ बल्कि बीते कई वर्षों से ये सब चला आ रहा है । हां,लेकिन ये शत्-प्रतिशत सत्य है कि इधर एक दो वर्षों में इसने आक्रामक रूप धारण कर लिया है और यह अभी देश की सबसे बड़ी चुनौती है । छोटे-छोटे मुद्दे अचानक से विशाल रूप धारण कर रहे हैं और एक बड़े मुद्दे को इस तरह ठंडे बस्ते में डाल दिया जा रहा है कि किसी को कानों कान खबर नहीं हो रही । अभी वर्तमान के मुद्दों पर एक नज़र डालने से सारी बातें स्पष्ट हो जाएंगी । दूसरों को गलत,नीचा दिखाने के लिए देशभक्ति का सहारा लेना एक ट्रेंड बन गया है । और तो और देश की प्रमुख हस्तियां भी इसमें पीछे नहीं है । सभी राष्ट्र की दुहाई देकर एक दूसरे की टांग खिंचाई कर रहे हैं। और इस कड़ी में हमारे राजनितिज्ञ सबसे आगे हैं । राजनितिक पार्टियां सही-गलत ना देखकर वोट बैंक के हिसाब से काम कर रही है । राजनितिक शक्तियां हमारे समाज के उपर हावी हो रही है । जिसका परिणाम हम स्पष्ट रूप से तनावग्रस्त समाज के रूप में हम देख रहे हैं । आखिर ऐसा क्यों हो रहा है ये जानने के लिए हमें रविन्द्र नाथ टैगोर ने राष्ट्र को लेकर जो बातें कही थी उसपर गौर करने की जरूरत है :-"लोगों के राजनितिक और आर्थिक संघ के अर्थ में,राष्ट्र एक ऐसा दृष्टिकोण है,जो सारे देशवासी किसी यांत्रिक उद्देश्य से संगठित होकर अपनाते हैं । समाज का अपना कोई बाहरी प्रयोजन नहीं होता । यह खुद अपने आप में साध्य होता है । यह मानव के सामाजिक प्राणी होने की स्वैच्छिक आत्माभिव्यक्ति होता है । यह मानवीय संबंधों की प्राकृतिक व्यवस्था है ताकि मनुष्य एक-दूसरे को सहयोग देने की नीयत से जीवन के आदर्शों का विकास कर सके । इसका एक राजनितिक पहलू भी होता है लेकिन वह किसी खास प्रयोजन के लिए ही होता है । वह आत्मसंरक्षण के लिए होता है । वह शक्ति का एक रूप होता है, न कि मानव आदर्शों का । शुरू में,समाज में,इसका अलग से स्थान निर्धारित था,जो केवल व्यावसायिक लोगों के लिए ही था । विज्ञान की सहायता एवं इस संगठन के परिष्कार के बाद इसकी शक्ति बढ़ने लगी और उसी के साथ अकूत संपदा आने लगी । तब आश्चयर्यजनक तेजी से उसने अपनी सीमाएं लांघनी शुरू कर दीं । फिर तो इसने भौतिक संपन्नता के लालच में अपने सभी पड़ोसी समाजों को उकसाना शुरू कर दिया । परिणामस्वरूप उनमें परस्पर ईर्ष्या रहने लगी तथा दूसरों के विकास के भय से इसने खुद को शक्तिशाली बनाना शुरू कर दिया । फिर इसे रोक पाना संभव नहीं रहता क्योंकि तब स्पर्धा तेज हो जाती है,संगठन व्यापक होने लगता है और स्वार्थ परम तत्व बन जाता है । मानव के लालच और भय को भुनाते हुए यह समाज में ज्यादा से ज्यादा स्थान घेरने लगता है और बाद में वहीं इसकी निर्णायक शक्ति बन जाता है" (राष्ट्रवाद पृष्ठ-28)आज के इस समय में हम इसी शक्ति  से घिरते जा रहे हैं । हम मानवीय मूल्यों,मानवीय आदर्शों को खोते जा रहे हैं जिसे अभी वर्तमान की सख्त जरूरत है । और यह तभी आ सकता है जब हम किसी राजनितिक, धार्मिक ,सामाजिक और अन्य ऐसी ही संगठनों से ऊपर उठकर मानवीय मूल्यों और आदर्शों के बारे में सोचें ।        - 'साहिल' तनवीर

Sex Positivity

This is some real talk about the ways of Vagina and here it goes...No one ever told you anything about it other than the vaginal orgasm shit. You came up with a million ways to call me a slut. Well, I know I'm a bitch. But you ain't getting any, so fuck that. What do you mean when you say that "I don't behave like a girl"? So what if I am not a "wife material". Its none of your business, who I fuck or how late I stay out. Mind your own business and get the fuck out. You can't touch this, but chastity can go to hell. Its not happening without my consent. And I don't need a man anyway. I fight my own battles, don't need no prince to work it out. Women choose their own paths, I am down with that.Don't forget to check your privilege. Education, employment ain't available to all. Workplace harassment, this shit's real, y'all. Your man doesn't use a condom? Tell him to fuck off. Unexpected pregnancy? You are on your own now. Had a baby? Your baby's daddy still a baby himself. You have to clean the house and give on-demand blowjobs. Or else your man cheats and they say its your fault. Mama says "suck it up, you are a girl" but why does my brother gets the jackpot? Dudes be running around topless, no one gets offended. I go braless and get raped, I have "asked for it". All because I have a Vagina. The bloody fountain of life. The root of pleasure, ain't nobody's wife. A shout-out to vaginas and sex positivity. Liberate them, it ain't dirty.Gender equality now!! I'm no one's property starting now!! I ain't following no man starting now!! I'mma find my own worth, starting now!!VAGINA PROPER NOW!!

Focus On Learning and Creating Rather Than Entertainment and Distraction
 Suchismita Sahu  
 25 February 2018  

An extraction from my reading experience, which converted me a writer. I cannot spend a single day without writing, even though I had to get up in the midnight to do it. Though,there is not much progress in my professional career now, but I feel writing converted me to an absolutely different personality. “Ordinary people seek entertainment. Extraordinary people seek education and learning.” -Benjamin Hardy Most people are distracted right now.They’re distracted while they’re at work. They’re distracted when they’re with family and friends.They’re distracted at the gym, on their commute, and even in the shower.The mediocre majority will continue going through life this way, never experiencing the fullness of a life filled with deep focus and purpose.Most people don’t prioritize learning and creating. They don’t care enough about any efforts to invest in their personal development and growth.Entertainment is more important. Most people have replaced achieving their life dreams and goals with TV, partying, and social media.Their life is characterized by entertainment and distraction, not learning and creating.As a result, they don’t have close relationships. They’re stuck in jobs they hate. Their life is on the fast-track to disappointment, and they don’t know what to do.Benjamin Hardy once said, “Entertainment and distraction is the enemy of creation and learning. They will keep you in mediocrity.”If you don’t want to end up living a life of mediocrity, focus on learning and education. It’s the fastest way to become extraordinary, wealthy, and successful.The Quality of Your Learning Determines the Quality of Your Success“Your level of success will rarely exceed your level of personal development, because success is something you attract by the person you become.” -Hal ElrodYour income, relationships, and success are determined by your learning.Most people spend more money on entertainment and gadgets than self-education. This is why they remain poor and broke with superficial relationships.The quality of your learning and how much you invest in yourself directly determines the extent of your growth.In the words of Ryan Holiday:“The extent of the struggle determines the extent of the growth.”You are defined by what you’re willing to struggle for. Most people aren’t willing to really struggle for anything. They blindly accept what they’re given, and spend their free time disengaging from reality.Renowned motivational speaker Jim Rohn once said the most successful people in the world are always lifelong learners. They fully understand that their level of education directly determines their quality of life.“Formal education makes a living, but self-education makes a fortune,” Rohn explained.It’s not just about a college degree. Most of what you learn in college isn’t applicable to real-world success. It’s your self-education, the kind of learning that helps you develop into the next evolution of yourself.Most people will continue to go through life “in quiet desperation, with their songs left unsung.” Others dictate their income, their happiness, and their fulfillment.If you don’t want to end up with regret on your death-bed, choose self-education over entertainment.“You’ve got to wake up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.” George LarimerWe Attract the Things That Reflect Who We AreDarren Hardy, author of The Compound Effect, once told a story about how he ended up with his wife.When he was in his 20’s, he began compiling an enormous list of every attribute he wanted his future wife to have. He eventually filled 40 pages detailing the most exquisite and perfect match he could think of.At the end of his writing, he realized something very important:Any woman like that wouldn’t want to have anything to do with someone like him!Hardy realized he needed to become a far better version of himself to attract a woman like that.You must become a far better version of yourself to achieve the enormous success you want.Benjamin Hardy put it this way: “We attract into our lives what we are.” Ask yourself — if you want a million dollars, do you have the mindset of a millionaire? Do you have the financial knowledge and self-discipline to own that kind of money?Most people don’t, yet they continue complaining about being poor. You’ll never become a millionaire if you don’t become someone who could be a millionaire!Every day, millions of people attract mediocre opportunities into their lives — jobs, time investments, dating partners, etc. — not realizing they are attracting exactly who they are!Extremely successful people are magnets of extraordinary opportunities. They are individuals who gravitate towards success, because they are successful themselves.If you constantly engage in mediocre, subpar activities with toxic individuals, you’ll only receive similar opportunities. You’ll never experience the type of success of the world’s most extraordinary people, because success is something you attract by the person you become.“Every next level of your life will demand a different you.” -Leonardo DiCaprioStep Forward Into Growth or Backwards Into Security“It’s absurd that we would prioritize the hottest new device, the cool car, or trendy toy over owning that which makes us feel the most engaged and most alive.” -Neil PatelC.S. Lewis once described humans this way: “We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”You do not have the luxury to “wait” to improve. Like an egg, you’ll either progress into a new version of yourself, or go rotten. There is no other way.Most people continue choosing security and safety over the choice to become the fullest version of themselves.Said Louis Sachar:“So, what’s it going to be — safety, or freedom? You can’t have both.”Right now, you have the choice — step forward into growth and development, or step backwards into safety and security.Most people step backward, slowly killing their chances to become extraordinary.Seth Godin once said, “The problem is that our culture has engaged in a Faustian bargain, in which we trade our genius and artistry for apparent stability.”The sad truth is: there’s no such thing as security. Money can be taken away (how many times have you heard of a multi-millionaire going bankrupt?). Our health could fail at any time. Millions of people are abruptly fired or laid off every year.Security isn’t real.We must choose to design our own life, and let go of our addiction to “apparent stability.” If you’ve traded your genius and creativity for “stability,” it’s time to get those back.“The goal of life is not to relax on the beach, sipping mojitos all day. The purpose is to find something you love that adds value to the world.” -Ben FoleyMost People Won’t Ever Experience True Success“The mediocre have a very narrow perception of reality, and in turn, their lives. They see things as they are, not how they can be.” -Ryan HolidayLearning and self-education aren’t popular. Most people don’t read books, attend seminars, or take even the most basic steps for self-improvement. They would rather choose distraction and entertainment.Most people will never be successful because they will spend their life this way.With just a few small changes to your life, you could enter into the top 5% — 10% of your field. The competition is extremely low! Amazing, extraordinary opportunities are abundant, because so few people ever take the steps to discover them.You can become one of the few truly successful people in the world by taking your self-education and learning seriously. In a world of mediocrity, you can become extraordinary with only a few simple tweaks.So how do you start?The more you keep evolving in better versions of yourself, the more you’ll need to be focused on the things that are most important.Your days must be characterized by high-quality activities and behaviors.Benjamin Hardy put it this way: “Success is continuously improving who you are, how you live, how you serve, and how you relate.”James Altucher once said, “Every day, check these 4 boxes: Have I improved 1% on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health?”You can start small. Even the smallest improvement is more than most people will ever see. While most people change slowly and unconsciously over time, you can begin taking control of your success by choosing to make a few small improvements.That’s all it takes.If You Want to Live an Extraordinary Life, You Need to Give Up a Normal One“If you want to live an extraordinary life, you have to give up many of the things that are part of a normal one.” -Srinivas RaoExtraordinary people are very uncommon. Their lifestyle of learning and self-education aren’t popular, either. Odds are, once you begin investing in yourself, you’ll find it’s a lonely road.Todd Henry wisely said, “The more bold you are, the more rejection you’ll experience.” The mob of the majority doesn’t like deserters.If you want an extraordinary life, you’ll need to give up many parts of the “normal” life. That might mean giving up common toxic behaviors or hanging out with toxic people. If “everyone does it,” you’d do well to give it a long, hard look.Most people will never achieve an extraordinary life. That’s OK. The extraordinary life isn’t for everyone. Learning and self-education take time, energy, and focus that most people would rather spend on entertainment and distraction — “ordinary” things.“Great” opportunities cost “good” ones; you can’t have both.Said Benjamin Hardy:Before you evolve, you can reasonably spend time with just about anyone.You can reasonably eat anything placed in front of you.You can reasonably justify activities and behaviors that are, frankly, mediocre.But as your vision expands, you realize you need to make adjustments. You can’t spend your money on junk anymore. You need to manage your time much more diligently. You need to invest in yourself and your future.To avoid mediocrity, you can’t continue being with negative people.You can’t keep eating crappy foods that slow you down.You can’t do many of the things you used to do.This is what extraordinary requires. Most people see the price and simply say “no thanks.”But you can do anything if you pay the price.“Every skill you acquire doubles your odds of success.” -Scott AdamsIn Conclusion“Who you are is a result of who you were, but where you end up depends entirely on who you choose to be from this moment forward.” -Hal ElrodThere are probably dozens of things you do on a daily basis that aren’t helping you improve.Most people live their lives on other people’s terms. Their days are spent working on other people’s goals and following the rules of someone else.Entertainment and distraction rule society. There will never be a shortage of TV shows, Buzzfeed articles, or Bad Lip Reading videos to take up your time.If you want to avoid mediocrity and achieve enormous success, you must cut out distractions and prioritize learning instead.Most people will go their whole lives as a slave to entertainment. They prioritize entertainment over improving their life, their family’s well-being, and their hopes and dreams.This is how people can stay at jobs they hate for years. It’s how people stay in toxic relationships and remain perpetually broke. They don’t bother learning how to succeed.If your lifestyle does not add to your growth and improvement, it will bring you down.Prioritize learning. Invest in self-education.Choose success over mediocrity.

Do School Need To Impart Sex Education?
 Ananya Sanjay Kumar  
 26 February 2018  

Sex education or in broad terms “sexuality education has been a topic of great brainstorming in India lately. Just like every other idea it also has its own set of protagonists and antagonist. While supporters (I’m also one of them) cite “better knowledge about sexual health and well-being” as a reason, opposers bring religion, tradition and culture to support their stand.Sex as we know it has been a taboo in India. People are not comfortable talking about it even though it’s as natural part of life as breathing. You can talk and discuss every other part of the body, their functions, diseases that affect them, the causes and remedies of these diseases but about your reproductive system? NOPE, that makes you mean, ill-mannered, ill-cultured douche and what not. You may find many saying that sex education is an obscene western concept and India with all its culture and traditions doesn’t need it. Yeah right! As if we reproduce by ‘photosynthesis’. Though the list of myths about sexuality and sex education is endless, Here we’ll try to bust some of them.MYTH NO. 1: Sex education teaches children to have sex at an early age.NOPE, It doesn’t teach children to have sex at an early age. It teaches them to understand their reproductive system just like any other part of the body. It teaches them about the changes they’ll be experiencing at puberty and how it’ll affect them. It teaches them how to handle and be at par with these changes. It teaches them about the the social, psychological and biological aspects of a leading a healthy sexual life. It teaches them about sexually transmitted diseases and their prevention, birth control measures, sexual abuse and its prevention etc. A healthy sexual life doesn’t only include the physical act of sex but the overall sexual well-being.MYTH NO. 2: Keeping children away from these things will keep them innocent, well-mannered and cultured.Well, certainly not. Children are always curious to know about everything and it applies to sex as well. Not telling them about these things will make them search for this information through some other medium which includes friends, internet and even porn. Chances are very high that these mediums will give him/her a half-baked truth and fill his head with myths about sex. It will only leave him more confused and disillusioned. I once checked a forum of sexual awareness people often used to ask their questions about sexuality. There I found teenagers asking if watching porn will make them pregnant or applying semen to face will make their skin soft. What do you think is the reason behind all these myths? Just one i.e. not talking to them about sex. That way they don’t get their information from credible sources and accept myths as truth.Not talking to them about it will also make them too naïve to understand the difference between a casual touch and an intent of sexual molestation. As we all know that sexual abuse among children aged 5-12 is a grave problem in India. About 30% of the minors are sexually abused in some forms or the other. That is a very gruesome figure and a great cause of concern. A percentage of these crimes happen because children are not aware about it. Making them aware will definitely reduce these incidents by a great margin.MYTH NO. 3: India doesn’t have cases of teen pregnancy like Europe. Why do we need this?A grossly misinformed statement. Child marriage is still prevalent in many parts of India and it sure results in teen pregnancies. Actually the number of teen pregnancies in India is 62 out of a 1000. This is higher than Europe and America. Educating children about birth control measures will lessen the cases of such pregnancies thus saving many lives in the process as the cases of death of teen mothers while delivering the baby is dangerously high.MYTH NO.4: Children should not be told about things like homosexuality which is against nature. It will make them homosexuals.Homosexuality is not against nature. It is as natural as heterosexuality. Telling someone about it will not make them homosexual. Sexual orientations are decided by genetic factors ant can’t be changed just by knowing about all other orientations. Knowing about it will only make them accept the diversity of orientations and looks look at homosexuals with inferiority.MYTH NO. 5: What about the culture?Our culture never shunned “sex and sexual” from being discussed. In fact we had many scholars like Vatsyayana who did extensive research on this topic. His research is still a source of extensive learning on this subject. It’s the Victorian era moral codes imposed by European colonizers in the disguise of tradition and religion which is confused as Indian culture here. So, the bottom line is that you can educate children/teenagers about sexuality while Indian culture will remain totally safe and sound.

The Room - Will you visit before it's too late ?
 Forem Lapsiwala  
 12 March 2018  

THE ROOM19 year old Nishantis worried as he enters the room with his mom, its 6 pm in the evening he has bunked a couple of classes to get to the venue, the sun is almost down but he still has his shades on.  He picks up a quiet corner further away from everyone and hopes the earth would swallow him.58 year old chatty Betty is on the other side. She is very blissful. She picks up conversations with almost everyone in the room. She is very friendly.35 year old Khushbu is also present. She is busy observing everyone, her so called fellow roommates, the receptionist, the general vibrations and the aura. She is very proud to get to the “room”.So where actually are they? Where one is worried of being spotted another proud and yet another totally blissful!! Let me give you a brief snippet of their lives.Nishant has had phenomenal performance in his academics. He has always topped the class. He has got into the best engineering college in the country. He has plans to set up his own start up dot com. He is introvert by nature but in this digital world who cares?! He is very close to his family and loves them dearly.Off late he worries a lot of the well being of his family members so much so that he checks on them almost every one hour. He believes every single minute that they are going to die. He feels there will be an earthquake or a road accident any minute and his family members will be affected. It took Nishant’s mom a lot of persuation to ask Nishant come along. He is worried on whether he should share this encounter in the room with his girlfriend at all.Betty is a wonderful lady with a heart of gold. She has a degree in chartered accountancy. She is the apple eyed girl of her father. She was responsible for setting up her paternal family’s business.  Albeit she found her prince charming sooner than expected and settled down for domesticity at the tender age of 21.All the same she is very knowledgeable and can have rich stimulating conversations from fashion to politics.Her problem is she is confused of her identity and family lineage. She believes she comes from royal family and nobody in her world is real. She believes that her mother is a queen who did not want to take care of her as she did not love her and in turn left her with her current foster parents. This of course is her imagination. She is more than happy to come to the room as she believes she is going to meet a queen.Khushbu is a young dynamic advertising professional. She has everything going right for her. She is blessed to have a supporting family,awesome children and a husband to die for. She is an omnivert if I may coin a behavioral term for her!! Well that means she is approachable and friendly yet does not blend in easily. She does not care what anybody thinks of her and speaks her mind. She is extremely self assured and leaves no stone unturned to fulfil her goals. She has a wide range of capabilities right from dancing, swimming to driving to name a few.All this suddenly disappears when she left by herself. She is always second guessing herself and is very anxious of being lonely. This has led to endless sleepless nights, frustration ultimately leading to bouts of violence. She feels so wretched at times that she contemplates suicide every second day. One minute she is happy next minute she is sad. She is totally clueless on what she will feel next. This roller coaster of emotions brings her to “the room”. She is glad she made it after a lot of contemplation.My guess is you have a guess by now (Pun intended) ! Welcome to the therapist’s clinic!! Do Nishant, Betty and Khushbu have a life situation that warrants a visit to the therapist? Are they having any crisis? Is there a financial loss? Is there a loss of a loved one? Is there a severe health failure?  Is there anything out of order at all dear readers in their lives?Now all of situations may well qualify for a psychological health crisis. An issue which exists but is not easily validated. Socially there is a refusal to classify it as a disease. Unlike Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Immunity Disorder, Cancer and so on and so forth there are no symptoms that the body will give out. Quiet contrarily here is absolutely no physical manifestation at all in all of the above cases.Technically they are not “crazy”, “mad” or “abnormal”. They are highly capable individuals. Well what separates them a little bit from most is that their thoughts run a tad more than us. Are not all of us a little weird? Do not all of us have some type of anxiety, imagination or lack of confidence. That’s all that’s about it. Would you give them company in the room without being apprehensive about judgment?It’s a actually a non starter. We all have a taboo about therapist, shrink or in need of a better word clinical psychologist. We are all worried about social acceptance having visited the therapist once. In fact it may even feature in our “dark secrets” that is allowed only the deepest recesses of our minds and hearts. We refuse to share, talk, discuss leave alone consultation.In fact it is so great an outlaw that we are not able to see our own tell tale signs of psychological inadequacies. We continue to lead a life filled with anxiety, depression, insomnia, addiction, stress needless to say and many more forms of emotional upheavals.Somehow when we think a psychotherapist we only think of a person who is deranged who is haggard who is not successful who is probably chained who is hostile who is demented the list is endless. They are the ones who get help because their inadequacies are on display.The ones who really suffer are the ones who cannot see that we don’t have to be psychotic to visit the therapist. We just need to want a better life. We are totally unaware of a much better joyous life that we may have if we care to pay attention to the needs of our mind. For this we need to lift the rose tinted glasses on our perception of “normalcy”. The irony of life is we are abnormally worked up about normalcy!!We need to revamp our approach to therapy. We need to believe that it’s ok to visit a therapist. Why should we deprive ourselves of a good life? The more we address it, talk about it and discuss it the more we improve our lives.Last but not the least! No! We don’t have to worry about changing the lives of the ones who are in the room. They are already the winners. We actually are talking about the lives of the ones who don’t visit and appear alright.  That very well may be us!!We all have that one emotion that we cannot handle. We all have that one compulsive disorder that we cannot change. We all have that one fear we cannot get over. It is all about our mind and our soul.If you dear readers don’t feel up to it don’t wait! Wake up, get going and visit the room. Get a life!#smblogcontest

“CSR, Skill India, Make in India & Women Empowerment All- In-One”
 Trupti Paikaray  
 13 March 2018  

We have been growing up watching our country always standing at the receiving end, almost all the time as a receiver of grants, funds given by the ‘developed countries’. India is always highlighted as a growing and developing country, in various debates and discussions and we must appreciate the efforts of the foreign & other outside investors for investing in our country & to co-operate us in a major way. But, in this entire process, we forget our potentials, acumen, strength, and abilities to stand apart to be equipped enough to make our country a developed country. It pinches a lot when for getting funds, the true and dismal picture of our country gets Instagrammed and much twitting about us in the international forums & many security facts gets leaked in the name of information and database sharing. But now, we can say it confidently that ‘yes’, we can be “Independently Independent Country”. India is much more prepared for the successful implementation of Skill development and Make in India programs. At the other side, the governance rules, regulations, and policies are on the progressive lines, one of them being Corporate Social Responsibility provisions in the Companies Act.It is a matter of fact that the new provisions of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the Companies Act will increase the level of CSR giving in India and therefore opportunities to improve social indicators. Everything has come up with a perfect timing as a complete package or as a bonanza. While our economy is heading towards manufacturing and services sectors, it’s high-time to look forward and seeing the demand that we can create for more skilled manpower. We have a varied of skill sets that can be explored to cater skill needs of different sectors. There is a wide range of skills that can be picked up, honed & nurtured for meeting the big gaps in the skilling sectors. There are so many sectors and sub-sectors like retail, Instrumentation Automation Surveillance & Communication, IT-ITeS, Media, Healthcare, gems & jewelry, Telecom, Electronics and hardware, BFSI, Beauty and wellness and many more new and upcoming sectors that needs special skilling attention to create a more potential workforce. The big CSR giants are going to play the significant roles in revamping and reorganizing our economy. A concrete PPP mode of implementation is the need of the hour and the CSR contribution towards Skill India and Make in India can yield huge success. At the same time, women based skill development programmes will give it an extra mileage towards achieving women empowerment along with revenue generation and economic enhancement. On this Women’s Day it should be added to the work agenda of the CSR projects and then it will be the best Women’s Day gift to the poor, downtrodden and all the struggling women and above all to the society. Skilling initiatives can ensure the employability among the youths, women and it can produce more skilled manpower to cater the need of various sectors, and it can create more entrepreneurs, sociopreneurs, and more job creations and can face-lift our country’s economy. We can use the metaphor that India will be a “What not skill store” or “A-Z skill Hub” and it will create scope for different countries to expand their business, there will be more trade and commerce with different parts of the globe which will expand our economic horizon. Skilling Initiatives can make maximum utilization of the human resources, proper skill development training can be imparted to physically challenged, people having conflict with law or the jail inmates, unemployed youths, women etc. so that they can be productive for the society and can be independent as well as can contribute towards country’s economic growth. But it’s impossible without the CSR participation. Since “International Women’s Day” is ahead, on this occasion and to make it more meaningful, CSR, Skill India and Make India campaign should take “Women Empowerment” as a mission and all these things should be combined together for a dynamic social change.Skill Development and Startups initiatives can be linked together for a better output as the youths are taking startups as alternatives to the employment. It can facilitate the job creation or employment generation process in our country by attracting the investors, funders. Our existing companies and industries should go ahead with more expansion ideas and facilities so that they can absorb more and more skilled manpower both towards revenue generation and job creation. Similarly, new companies, industries must come up with new ventures to make the “Make in India Campaign” a huge success. Attitude is the next priority and we must come out of the traditional pattern of skill development initiatives and why only some handpicked sectors, we must be very open to accept and create new sectors & new areas of skilling must be explored and taken up. It will help us to go ahead in the race of development, it will be the hub of economy, our money will be circulated and retained within our country and it will move in a spiral process. It will create more scope for economic growth, our people will be employed, our people will be able to earn more, pay more, spend more, there will be true socio-economic development. A day will come when our NGOs will be self-sustainable by creating their own funding, our Investors will be invited to international forums for investment in those countries, in the same manner, we are trying to draw the attention of the external investors. We will be called the citizens of such a powerful, developed and economically empowered country India.

"The Puppet Show"

What a beautiful life it was without the virtual reality headaches. Babloo with Golu calling Titu and Monu with other friends were rushing to the nearby fields to play cricket, volleyball, football, gilli danda and kabaddi. They were even so fond of sack race, cycling, hide and seek and a number of other exciting games not only to keep them entertained but also to stay fit and fine. Then, Babloo, Golu, and Titu were growing up playing various outdoor games, the games which need sharp mind, attention, keen intellect and alertness. They were also doing best in their studies and pursuing good careers. It is true that they didn’t know the magic of the computer and internet. If they were given such facility, nobody would have beaten them. Here, what I want to highlight that yes they were lacking a facility, but still, they were the go-getters, the trendsetters. With the advent of computer and internet life changed hugely. Nowadays, kids are ‘internet-babies’ and youth are ‘puppets’ in the hands of the internet. I don’t dare to say anything against internet and it has a lot of contribution to our life. If our life is getting better and better, it is only because of the internet. But as we know “too much of everything is bad”, we should have control over its use. Along with free internet data available, not only youths but most of the people are getting addicted to the internet and social media. Kids cannot stay away from online games, cartoon videos and new varieties of apps are also coming up which fascinates the young minds.Social media is gaining huge popularity day by day. It’s indeed a great idea to stay connected to friends, family, admirers, and well-wishers. Personally, I feel it’s a great platform to expand your knowledge and information base. It connects you to a group of like-minded people, using it we grow our business, increase our fan followers. We also get to know about day to day happenings. But, the excess use of social media leads to frustrations also. There is a kind of virtual competition going on. People are busy showing off that they can afford to visit foreign countries, can go to expensive hotels and can enjoy the most exotic holiday trips and at the same time busy uploading picture, to make others feel that “yes, I can afford and I am living such a lavish lifestyle.” Those people, who really can’t afford, feel sad and broken and it also makes them feel low. It gives them a chance to curse their destiny; it creates and spreads jealousy and narcissism among people. If we post something on social media then we expect more likes and comments and if there are more likes we feel like winners, if fewer likes and comments feel like losers. Somehow, it disturbs our mental peace. Yes, I have seen many teenagers struggling to get more likes, comments, and shares. After the addition of love, wow like emoticon buttons, there is competition to get more loves, wows. Is it a real life? We forget that this is not the taste of a real life.As per my observations on social media behavior I found there are a few types of social media users which can be divided into the following groups;Group-1 (The smart users): These types of people always love to give likes or comments if you look beautiful, smart, if you post pictures of your exotic holiday trips, get good jobs in big companies. Let me say, this is the reason you get more friends and it can also be the reason for losing some friends as they can't see you going, growing, or happy.Group-2 (The Genuine users): There are some people who always give likes and comments from their hearts being yours true and genuine admirers and they never hurt you. They can be the biggest supporters and friends.Group-3 (The Deliberate users): Some are there who prefer to give likes, loves, wows and comments as they expect you to do the same and it’s their sweet strategy to get more likes in return. They can be described as sweet “Like collectors & counters”.Group-4 (The Snobs): Some users are there who give likes and comments only when they find and think, “Oh, yes…this guy is of my level”. Otherwise, they don't care.Group-5 (The Moody users): There is a type of moody users group. They are so moody in this matter and you can't predict when you are going to get likes and comments from them. Group-6 (The Silent users): Another group of users is there who never give likes or comments and don’t bother even if you don’t give comments on their posts.Group-7 (The Jealous users): Some people knowingly avoid you only because “it is you” and they feel jealous of your followers, friends and the more likes and comments you get the more it makes them upset. Group-8 (The Selfish users): The selfish users are the true bargaining kind of people, “If you give likes, I will give likes, if you don’t, I won’t”. However, they start liking your posts like ‘your one and only friend’ and beautiful comments to make win your hearts. But, if they don’t get return likes or comments they just stop there.Group-9 (The Go with the flow users): Go with the flow users are very diplomatic. They give comments, likes, loves on your posts, pictures only when see and find your mutual friends giving you likes, loves, wows, then they can’t tolerate and even if they don’t like they give it only to go with the flow.Group-10 (The Game watchers): Last but not the least, the ‘Game watchers’ love to watch the game till the end. They just pause a bit, then wait and watch how your posts are performing in the ‘Like & Comments Game’. If your posts get more likes n comments then they decide to throw likes.The story doesn't end here. Many people are opening fake accounts and flirt with girls and start chatting with them. As everything has its pros and cons even social media has its own advantages and disadvantages. It is undoubtedly the biggest source of communication, interaction, entertainment or infotainment. It is used in a wrong way causing major issues. Cyberbullying, hurting each other and insulting people are very common these days. Teens are completely trapped by the momentary bliss social media gives. We are celebrating festivals, important days and throwing parties being obsessed with posting pictures and giving status updates by forgetting the actual purpose of the event. In this entire process, we people are getting puppets in the hands of technology and social media. It controls our emotions, it gives us pleasure, and our life is controlled by how many likes, loves, and wows we get. It is also creating frustrations among the youths as they see their friend going ahead, achieving success, going on foreign trips, spending holidays in posh hotels, buying luxurious cars and houses and they can’t do it. It makes them feel low and bad about themselves and their positions. But, they must understand that “all that glitters is not gold” and people do it only to show others. In the name of social media, we forget the actual relationships because we are so busy with this ‘virtual friendship’. As per a new study, we now spend more time on our smartphones than with our partner. While at home, we too remain busy with our smartphones, updating our status on social media and it’s like as if a puppet show is going on and we are the puppets in the hands of social media. Hence, we must understand the pros and cons of social media and it should be used to make our lives better not bitter. We should not be addicted to it. There are a lot of benefits from using these platforms. We can follow the news, can read good articles, and can keep in touch with friends and family who may be physically far away. But sometimes, we should take a break from it, just put the windows down, enjoy the fresh air, breathe, read some good books, do gardening, go for a walk, spend time with family & friends, play some outdoor games and do some charity work and it will give you the real pleasure of being with the real people. 

"The Puppet Show"

What a beautiful life it was without the virtual reality headaches. Babloo with Golu calling Titu and Monu with other friends were rushing to the nearby fields to play cricket, volleyball, football, gilli danda and kabaddi. They were even so fond of sack race, cycling, hide and seek and a number of other exciting games not only to keep them entertained but also to stay fit and fine. Then, Babloo, Golu, and Titu were growing up playing various outdoor games, the games which need sharp mind, attention, keen intellect and alertness. They were also doing best in their studies and pursuing good careers. It is true that they didn’t know the magic of the computer and internet.

When Women Stopped eating leftovers : A Picture Which Must Change
 Surender Negi  
 18 March 2018  

Being Indian, some news brings you shame. This kind of news is one of them. In 21st CE, Where the whole world watches us with their understanding of this century shamed us for such gender discrimination.In distance village of Rajasthan, Banswara. Few NGO went and found that there is a tradition for women. In this tradition, women eat after his male partner and family. eventually, NGO found that it is gender discrimination and they started to educated women groups. Ironically, Many parts of India these kinds of practice is social norms. These kinds of practice have been unchanged in many decades. Many people saw them as regressive practice or culture which comes from Hinduism but for few of them, it’s only outdated tradition which must go as we live in the 21st Century.  For Original article please go throw the below mention link:When women stopped eating leftovers?Irrespective of many arguments that this behavior comes from the patriarchal culture of Indian society, I disagree with this notion. I don’t think so original and fundamental culture of India was male patriarchal in nature. All original scripture which has founded Hinduism agreed on one simple fact:“Women should be worship like Goddess and Their respect brings Devas (deities) into the home”. (Paraphrased from Manusmriti)There are several examples where we Indians celebrated the world most taboo things. Sex (Kamasutra is one of the celebrated book in Indian culture about sex) symbols and position. There is temple which is dedicated to sex and sexual posture. I don’t find that people were having about watching these images together.Khajuraho images which show various posture of sexual activities. (Source: The Wire)So how can a society which gives sex (A widely accepted taboos in all Abrahamic religion) images a place in their temple has become such regressive that they were not allowing women to eat together? It simply baffled me.More than half (51%) of all Indian women of reproductive age have anemia, according to the Global Nutrition report 2017. While our women are not allowed to eat properly. This is a shame situation. But as I was expecting, few readers who have novice understanding about everything had tried to link it with North Indian states, few consider that it’s the fault of Hinduism and few consider that it’s due to our society which has regressive structure.I would like to remind all Indians, It is our burden to remove such practices out of the window and the real reason for such discrimination practice amongst women has nothing to do with Hinduism or It’s ancient culture. For understanding that women position in Indian society please go throw my blog:Women In Hinduism – Part OneWomen in Hinduism.(Wikipedia)We must need to accept that after Mugal invasion (I am not blaming here Mugal but the patriarchy culture they bring in India) our culture has been decayed and it is not inline with our scripture which gives women freedom, allow them social and civil rights. Slowly the local practices turn out to be more patriarchy. But I would like to share an example, which no Indian can be denied and that is the proof that still Indian culture have not inhibit complete patriarchy.When I was a kid. My father used to hard work. I have seen him giving complete salary to my mother (who was the housewife and earn nothing). I have seen him asking money from my mother for his daily expanse. This is the story of millions Hindus household. I never have seen such practice in other culture. Male used to keep all money and give a small number of women for their need. But the above mention practice is a popular culture amongst Hindu family which shows that financial owner of the family is “Women”, They have been termed as “DhanLaxmi” or “Finance Ministers”.So, In my point of view. This kind of practice happening because of Illiteracy. We need a massive drive of literacy (Dharmic and Modern). We need to teach people what they are doing is against of their culture and Modern values.Only Education and Social awareness can bring the change we want. Abusing a culture (which certainly no one understands because of its complexity) is novice attempt to shed of responsibilities. Blaming mindless way will help no one.We must not forget what Upanishads told us about eating habit in the family:And if a man wishes that a learned daughter should be born to him, and that she should live to her full age, then after having prepared boiled rice with sesamum and butter, they should both eat, being fit to have offspring.And if a man wishes that a learned son should be born to him, and that he should live his full age, then after having prepared boiled rice with meat and butter, they should both eat, being fit to have offspring.— BRIHADARANYAKA UPANISHAD 6.4.17 – 6.4.18,The irony with Indians is that We are being more animal after leaving our dharma education. It is time when we bring back the dharmic culture back to our society.

The Islamic mafia of Bollywood
 Surender Negi  
 18 March 2018  

On August 12,1997 a loud series of shots rang out outside the Jeeteswar Mahadev Mandir in Mumbai. They were just one in a sequence of warnings about the state of our nation, and yet just as before, we Hindus refuse to wake up and face the truth. The event that occurred outside the Mahadev Mandir in Mumbai that fateful day, was not particularly outstanding when seen in the context of the daily reinforcement of the fact that India is in the hands of Muslim terrorists. The victim on this particular day happened to be a plump, short media baron, known as Gulshan Kumar.Who was Gulshan Kumar, the Cassette King? He started out life as a humble fruit juice seller's son in Old Delhi. He wanted to make it big in Bombay and he did, by cooking up innovative ways to pirate popular music. Super Cassette Industries, his flagship company and its low price high volume strategy ushered in a musical revolution. Pretty soon he had the leader of the pack , HMV India itself, chomping at the bits in order to compete with him. Using all of his fortunes from his music production company in Noida, near Delhi to finance his film production business, Gulshan Kumar soon became the owner of a vast 400 crore rupee empire.. He was the highest tax payer for the financial year 1992-93.It was with his foray into the Indian film industry that Gulshan took his first step into the jaws of the Muslim Mafia network without which Bollywood simply can not exist. For decades the film industry has been the money-spinning machine and media arm of the Islamic Mafia. The Indian film industry serves a twofold purpose for the international Islamic Mafia which is headquartered in UAE and Pakistan . 1) With a turnover of over Rs. 7000 Crore, the Indian film industry has become one of the biggest money making operations for the Islamic Mafia. Although it is not as profitable as drug-trafficking, sale of illegal arms, prostitution rings or counterfeit money, it certainly does help to line the pockets and provides valuable interface to politicians and industrialists who are enamored of the glamour and glitter of Cinema magic. 2) But the real reason why the Indian film industry is so important to the Islamic Mafia, is the fact that it serves as the best possible propaganda tool in a country of over 950 million people. A blatant glorification of Islam and an utterly distorted insulting portrayal of Hinduism are the tools that it uses constantly to affect Indians' psyche and effectively utilize information warfare. Hindu culture is consistently given the mantle of a backward, intolerant, illogical culture, whereas Islamic concepts, ideas, and judgments are given the legitimacy of truth. One of the most successful byproducts of this psychological manipulation has been the corruption of Hindi, via the glorification of Arabicised Urdu words. In popular films and music, Urdu is always used in order to condition the Indian public. In other instances, terrorism which usually stems from Islamic quarters in India , is attributed to Hindu groups in movies! Islamic terrorists are portrayed as martyrs on screen. Islamic ideas are touted as progressive whereas Hindu ideals are dismissed as outdated and illiterate. Urdu is the language of "civilized" sophisticates, Hindi is the language of "Ganwaars" or village idiots. These are just a few examples of the objectives which the control of Bollywood provides to the Islamic Mafia. On August 12, 1997 , nothing appeared to be out of the ordinary as the familiar portly figure of Gulshan Kumar attired in white kurta stepped out of his car in front of the Jeeteswar Mahadev Mandir that fateful day. A simple Thali of offerings for worship of Lord Shiva swayed in his plump hands as he started walking towards the shrine. His devotion to the divine had been steadfast in its earnestness. A huge portion of his wealth had gone into beautifying and enhancing the pilgrimage experience of Vaishno Devi for pious devotees. It was his efforts which had rekindled the sound of early morning Bhajans in Indian households all over the country. Despite the allegations of piracy and fraud, he had focused all his energies into what he viewed as an offering to God. As the assassins pumped his frame with bullets, the last words heard by Gulshan Kumar were:"Bahut ho gayi teri puja, ab upar ja ke aur karo" (You have prayed enough to your idols down here, now go up there and do it.) A chilling reminder of the fact that Islam and the Islamic Mafia will do its best to eliminate any Hindu who dares to reaffirm his faith loud and clear in India . Who were Gulshan Kumar's enemies? What was his crime?The clues to the answer apparently lie with music director Nadeem Saifee. In 1997, Nadeem's solo album Hai Ajnabi bombed. He wanted Gulshan Kumar to finance his next private album. Gulshan Kumar wisely decided that Nadeem was not destined to be a chartbuster and refused outright. An enraged Nadeem who was obviously used to displaying arrogance in lieu of his Islamic godfather's protection started threatening Kumar saying "Have you got a call or not? My "Chahnewaale" (friends) will call you. You don't know who I am."By May 1997, Abdul Qayoom Ansari alias Abu Salem, a 29-year-old Dubai-based member of the Islamic Mafia, who is also known as one of the "arms" of kingpin Dawood Ibrahim, had called up Gulshan Kumar on his mobile and curtly told him to call back at a Dubai mobile number. When Gulshan called the number back, an amount to the tune of 10 Crore Rupees was quoted and Kumar was threatened with dire consequences if he failed to cough up the dough. Kumar, a man who had managed to survive in the Film Industry long enough without giving in to the Islamic Mafia of ISI's underworld dons, refused to pay outright. Even when Abu Salem sent his Mullah terrorists to Gulshan in person, the wary devotee refused to budge an inch.  Who is Abu Salem??He is accused number 87 in the Bombay bomb blast case. He was charged with procuring nine AK-56 rifles at the command of Dawood's brother Anees Ibrahim. Mumbai courts issued an arrest warrant against him in 1993 ``for conspiracy to cause explosions with intent to cause death and damage to property.'' If caught and convicted he faces the death penalty. In 1995, Interpol had issued a Red Corner alert for him. In 1997, the UAE government received extradition papers for Salem from the CBI upon request. The first ever trap (which is known as `fielding', in the underworld slang) was laid with the blessing of nadeem and his "godfather" Dawood . The trap for killing Gulshan Kumar was laid between July 15 and 20, while he was shooting for his forthcoming untitled film at the Jasdanwala Bungalow at Aqsa Beach , Malad. Two teams from the gang maintained a watch on his movements but failed to strike either because of the milling crowds around him, or for the fact that he was shielded by his Punjabi bodyguard. When Gulshan Kumar refused Abu Salem's threats of extortion, he was enraged at the "Kafir" Hindu's insolence and ordered the hit. Apart from Kumar's 250-crore annual turnover from Super Cassettes and Music Industries, his religiosity and lavish expenditure for devotional purposes including a `langar' at Vaishnodevi temple, where Rs 5 lakh was spent every month had become eyesores for the Islamic Mafia. Abu Salem had been chosen as the key operational head in Bombay by Dawood himself , due to his incredibly cruel and brutal nature. He was also given charge of handling extortions and hawala transactions on Dawood's behalf. In April, Abu Salem began by calling up top film producers asking them to pay up. About 20 top film personalities were personally contacted by Salem over the span of two months. The figures he quoted as extortion payments were in hundreds of crores. Over 95% of the Movie moguls simply paid and never informed the police. Salem 's men attacked producer-director Rajiv Rai at his Tardeo office, which led Rai to flee to London . He never returned since. Later that April an attempt was made on Subhash Ghai's life which was foiled by alert police. Salem himself had telephoned Subhash Ghai asking him to pay up. The Indian Film Industry was serving its purpose as the money making the machine which churned out Millions of Rupees in liquid assets for Dawood and ISI to create mayhem, death and destruction all over India. Not one moviemaker had the guts to resist, every single one of them was deeply involved in this deep-seated treachery and anti-national activity which killed Indian citizens every day. Was it simply because Gulshan Kumar did not give in to this nefarious plan, that his body lay riddled with bullets in front of the Temple steps in Mumbai that day? Hardly. As the details began trickling in, it became apparent that the plot to kill Gulshan Kumar had been hatched on June 12 at Dubai when a galaxy of Indian stars participated in the opening of a luxury hotel owned by Vivek Goswami a narcotics dealer linked to Chota Rajan another underworld non-resident Indian don. As investigations continued, more rivalries began surfing. Ramesh Taurani - owner of Tips another rival to Super Cassette, was identified as an associate of Dawood Ibrahim's gang. The investigation led the police to interview filmstars Pooja Bhat, Salman Khan and Shravan among others. Bollywood's links with Mumbai's underworld were always known. But the extent of its involvement with the Islamic Mafia became apparent only after Gulshan Kumar's death, a man who was murdered simply because he was a Hindu success story. "When the underworld approaches you, you cannot refuse.", these were the chilling words of Nadeem Saifee, the main accused in the Gulshan Kumar murder case. A month later a casual friend of Gulshan Kumar and writer-director Mukul Anand died unexpectedly of a "heart attack" in his sister's home in Mumbai. Anand had been in the process of making a movie on Kashmir which went against the Islamic Mafia's propaganda plans. The film was being shot in USA on the pretext that the environs resembled those of Kashmir . The reality was quite different. Anand had been threatened and he and several of his associates were frightened enough to go into hiding when they returned to India to raise more money for the movie. A relative of the executive producer was slain by a killer on a motorbike. And then all of a sudden Mukul Anand suffered a surprise "heart attack".What is even more shocking to discover is that EIGHT months before Abu Salem ordered the cold blooded of Gulshan Kumar , the CBI had requested his extradition from the UAE government. However, the request became just another of the 35 others pending with the Government of United Arab Emirates and like the other requests, this too was put on the backburner. The CBI is not too optimistic about getting back any of the members of the Dawood gang, hawala dealers and arms and drugs smugglers who are responsible for the most heinous crimes committed against India .The Arab provision of shelter to these hard core terrorists and criminals provides convincing evidence that the conspiracy to create chaos and panic in India stems from the Islamic world in general. Dawood Ibrahim follows and carries out the directives of Pakistan 's ISI and oil rich Arabs, who take pride in their Islamic fanaticism. It is he and his deputies who mastermind all of the major terrorist attacks and hardcore crimes which take place in India . As the disturbing facts about Gulshan Kumar's murder were unearthed, an incredible pattern of internally linked networks which are sustained by the Islamic Mafia become apparent. The crimes begin with low level extortions and proceed higher up the ladder with the all too willing Indian movie industry, as well as heads of major corporations in India and finally goes all the way up to the politicians who hold the highest positions in the land.The breadth and depth of this net of crime and the virulently anti Indian activities it breeds are spread unimaginably far. The extent of involvement is so deep, that the public knows not even one hundredth of the details of this story.Original Post : Islamic Mafia of Bollywood: Death of Gulshan Kumar#smblogcontest

भारत में पाँव पसारता बाबावाद और अंधविश्वास
 Arpit Dwivedi  
 19 March 2018  

यदि किसी समाज का आर्थिक विकास की अपेक्षाकृत बौद्धिक विकास न हो तो वह समाज अंधविश्वासों में और भी गहरे धंसता चला जाता है। फिर उस समाज में लोगों के अंधविश्वास का फायदा उठाकर अपना घर भरने वाले परजीवियों का साम्राज्य विकसित होने लगता है।भारत के मामले में यही हुआ है। 90 के दशक में उदारीकरण के बाद मध्यम वर्ग के लोगों के जीवन स्तर में तेजी से सुधार हुआ। इससे पहले जहाँ टीवी, फ्रिज और स्कूटर जैसे सुख साधन कुछ खास लोगों की पहुंच में ही हुआ करते थे, फिर ये आम लोगों की पहुंच में भी आने लगे। जब लोगों की आमदनी बढ़ी तो उसके साथ ही बाजार भी तरह तरह के उत्पादों से पट गया। फिर स्वयं को एक दुसरे से श्रेष्ठ और साधन संपन्न दिखाने की होड़ शुरू हुयी। इस होड़ ने मध्यम वर्ग की शांत जिन्दगी में खलबली मचा दी। एक दौड़ शुरू हो गई जिसमें सबको आगे निकलना था। महत्वकांक्षाओं से संचालित इस दौड़ ने लोगों के मन में भय, असुरक्षा और लालच को जन्म दिया। लालच से भरे डरे हुए लोग परजीवियों के लिए एक आसान शिकार थे। और इस शिकार के लिए उन्हें कोई विशेष प्रयास की आवश्यक्ता भी नहीं थी। उन्हें तो बस अपना मुहँ खोलकर बैठ जाना था, क्योंकि शिकार तो खुद ब खुद चलकर उनके पास आ रहा था।इस दौरान लोगों द्वारा धार्मिक कार्यों में किया जाने वाला खर्च अचानक ही बहुत बढ़ गया। पहले जहाँ धार्मिक आयोजन के नाम पर बस सत्यनारायण की कथा हुआ करती थी अब माता के जागरण जैसे भव्य आयोजन होने लगे। ऐसे आयोजनों ने लोगों को अपनी संपन्नता और धार्मिकता के प्रदर्शन का अवसर तो मुहैया कराया ही इनके साथ साथ दैवीय कृपा प्राप्त कर लेने का आश्वासन भी दिया। देखते ही देखते देश भर में जागरण पार्टियों की बाढ़ आ गई। इसके साथ ही धार्मिक पर्यटन और मंदिरों की आय में भी भारी वृद्धि हुयी।इससे पहले जहाँ लोग जीवन में एक बार तीर्थ यात्रा संपन कर लेने को उपलब्धि मानते थे वहीँ अब पिकनिक की तरह तीर्थ यात्राएं होने लगीं। यहाँ तक की बद्रीनाथ केदारनाथ और अमरनाथ जैसे दुर्गम तीर्थ स्थलों पर भी लोग हर वर्ष हाजिरी देने जाने लगे। जो थोड़े कम साहसी थे उन्होंने अपने आस पास ही किसी धर्मस्थल को चुन लिया जहाँ वे नियमित अन्तराल पर हाजिरी लगाने जाने लगे। जैसे मथुरा वृन्दावन में हर सप्ताहांत पर आस पास की जगहों से लोग पहुँच जाते हैं। इनमें सबसे ज्यादा संख्या दिल्ली एनसीआर के संपन्न लोगों की होती है। इनमें से कुछ लोग तो ऐसे होते हैं जो हर सप्ताह दिल्ली से बिना नागा हाजिरी देने पहुँच जाते हैं। विशेष अवसरों पर तो यहाँ इतनी भीड़ जुटती है कि व्यवस्था चरमरा जाती है। तीर्थयात्रियों की बढती भीड़ को भुनाने के लिए पिछले कुछ वर्षों के दौरान यहाँ कई भव्य मंदिरों का निर्माण हुआ है।इसके साथ ही कथावाचकों और प्रवचनकर्ताओं का धंधा भी चल निकला। कथावाचकों के पंडालों में भीड़ उमड़ने लगी। आसाराम तथा उस जैसे कई अन्य कथावाचकों ने इस अवसर का जमकर लाभ उठाया और स्वयं को एक ब्रांड की तरह धर्म और अध्यात्म के बाजार में स्थापित कर लिया। उनके अनुयायियों की भारी भीड़ ने उनको शोहरत और राजनीतिक ताकत के साथ साथ ढेर सारा धन भी दिया। इस धन का उपयोग उन्होंने अपने प्रचार के लिए किया और इसके जरिये प्रचार के सबसे सशक्त माध्यम टीवी तक अपनी पहुँच बना ली। अब इनके प्रोग्राम टीवी पर प्रसारित होने लगे। लगभग सभी मुख्य चैनलों पर सुबह का स्लॉट इनके लिए बुक हो गया। टीवी पर आना इनके लिए बहुत फायदे का सौदा साबित हुआ। टीवी के जरिये इन्होने घर घर तक अपनी पहुँच बना ली और इनके अनुयायियों की संख्या और साथ ही लाभ में भी अप्रत्याशित रूप से बढ़ोतरी हुई। इसने मिडिया जगत में कुछ लोगों के कान भी खड़े कर दिए। वे भी इस धर्म और अध्यात्म की बहती गंगा में लाभ की संभावनाएं तलाशने लगे।मुंबई में एक प्रोडक्शन हाउस चला रहे भूतपूर्व पत्रकार माधव कान्त मिश्रा ने इस सम्भावना को सबसे पहले पहचाना और सन 2000 में उन्होंने आस्था नामक चैनल को लांच कर दिया। इस चैनल ने जनता तक अपनी पहुँच बनाने के लिए बेताब बहुत से गुरुओं और कथावाचकों के लिए संभावनाओं के द्वार खोल दिए। शुरू में इस चैनल पर प्रसारित होने वाली सामग्री के लिए कोई कीमत नहीं वसूली जाती थी। लेकिन बढती मांग ने इसको ज्यादा दिन फ्री नहीं रहने दिया। क्योंकि ऐसे बाबाओं और गुरुओं की कोई कमी नहीं थी जो खुद को टीवी पर दिखाने के लिए अच्छी खासी कीमत देने को तैयार थे। इस बढती मांग को भुनाने के लिए धडाधड धार्मिक चैनल लांच होने लगे। इन चैनलों में अधिकांश का स्वामित्व किसी न किसी धर्मगुरु के पास ही था। इस तरह इन चैनलों के जरिये ये दोहरा लाभ कमाने लगे। आस्था चैनल के स्वामित्व को भी बाद में बाबा रामदेव के सहयोगी आचार्य बालकृष्ण ने खरीद लिया। बाबा रामदेव को योगगुरु से एक सफल व्यवसायी के रूप में स्थापित करने में इस चैनल का बहुत बड़ा हाथ है।टीवी के जरिये होने वाले प्रचार की सबसे बड़ी खासियत यह है कि आप सीधे ही लक्षित उपभोक्ताओं तक पहुँच बना सकते हैं। आज के दौर में टीवी देखने में ज्यादा समय व्यतीत करने वाले अधिकांश लोग औसत बुद्धि के ही होते हैं। उनमें भी जो लोग धार्मिक चैनलों को देखते हैं वे तो बुद्धि में औसत से भी नीचे होते हैं। ऐसे लोगों को आसानी से बुद्धू बनाया जा सकता है।इन चैनलों ने किसी तरह जजमानी करके गुजारा कर रहे ज्योतिषाचार्यों को भी संभावनाओं का मार्ग दिखाया। जीवन की दौड़ में आगे निकलने को लालायित और जीवन की अनिश्चितताओं से डरे हुए लोग अपना भविष्य जान लेने को आतुर थे। वो वह हर संभव तरकीब आजमा लेना चाहते थे जिससे वे किसी तरह सम्रद्धि हासिल कर सकें और जीवन की अनिश्चितताओं को लेकर संतुष्ट हो सकें। ऐसे लोगों का दोहन करने के लिए ज्योत्षी, वास्तुशास्त्री, हस्तरेखा विशेषज्ञ, तांत्रिक, टैरो कार्ड रीडर जैसे परजीवी तैयार बैठे थे। टीवी ने इनको अपने प्रचार का मंच उपलब्ध करा ही दिया था। कुछ ही समय में धार्मिक चैनलों पर ज्योतिष के प्रोग्रामों की लाइन लग गई। फुटपाथ पर बिकने वाली ज्योतिष की चार किताबें पढकर अपनी वाकपटुता और लोगों के ठगने के टैलेंट में निपुण लोग टीवी पर ख़रीदे हुए स्लॉट के जरिये प्रसिद्ध ज्योतिषाचार्य बन गए।टीवी के जरिये ज्योतिष का इतना अंधाधुंध प्रचार हुआ कि लोग हर छोटी बड़ी बात के लिए ज्योत्षियों के पास भागने लगे। नयी कार निकालने से लेकर बच्चे के जन्म का मुहूर्त भी ज्योतिष के आधार पर निर्धारित किया जाने लगा। लोग अपने घर का नक्शा बनवाने के लिए आर्किटेक्ट के बजाये वास्तुशास्त्रियों को महत्व देने लगे और जिनके घर बन चुके थे वे अपने घर को वास्तु के अनुसार तोड़फोड़ कर ठीक कराने लगे। अब लगभग सभी लोगों के हाथों में जेमस्टोन और गले में तरह तरह के लॉकेट दिखाई देने लगे। ग्रहों को प्रसन्न करने के लिए लोग ज्योत्षियों की सलाह पर महंगे महंगे पूजा-पाठ, मन्त्र जाप और हवन इत्यादि करवाने लगे।ये चैनल ठगों के लिए इतना उपयोगी माध्यम साबित हुए की कल तक अख़बारों के क्लासिफाइड, बसों, ट्रेनों और सार्वजानिक शौचालयों में पर्चे चिपकाकर अपना प्रचार करने वाले बाबा बंगाली भी टीवी पर अपनी दुकान खोलकर बैठ गए। फिर समोसे को लाल हरी चटनी से खाने पर भी कृपा आने लगी। बस स्टैंड के पीछे, पीपल के पेड़ के नीचे मर्दाना कमजोरी का इलाज करने वाले हकीम जी भी टीवी पर पहुँच गए। मोटापा, डायबिटीज, कैन्सर, माइग्रेन, अस्थमा जैसी बिमारियों के लिए प्राकृतिक चिकित्सा के नाम पर तरह तरह के उत्पाद बेचे जाने लगे। जिन लोगों ने कभी कॉलेज का मुहँ भी नहीं देखा वे भी टीवी पर डॉ साहब, वैध जी, हकीम जी के नाम से प्रसिद्ध हो गए।  बरहाल ये दौर अभी भी जारी है और निकट भविष्य में भी इसमें किसी बड़े बदलाव के आसार फ़िलहाल दिखाई नहीं दे रहे हैं। अन्धविश्वास का जहर आज भी लगातार विभिन्न माध्यमों से समाज में फैलाया जा रहा है। भारत में तेजी से पैर पसारते बाबावाद के पीछे यही प्रचार जिम्मेदार है जिसका पैसा आता तो अमीरों की जेब से है, लेकिन इससे सबसे ज्यादा नुकसान निम्न वर्ग के लोगों का हुआ है। क्योंकि रईस लोगों ने तो केवल अपना थोड़ा सा धन खोया, लेकिन वे गरीब लोग जो किसी तरह कठिनाईयों में अपना जीवनयापन कर रहे हैं अपना सब कुछ लुटा बैठे। जिन बाबाओं और गुरुओं को वे ईश्वर के समकक्ष मान कर अपने उद्धार की आशा कर रहे थे उन्होंने न केवल उन्हें मानसिक और आर्थिक रूप से ठगा बल्कि उनकी बहन बेटियों की इज्जत भी तार-तार कर डाली।

THE LANGUAGE OF VIOLENCE
 Gunika Grover  
 7 April 2018  

Derrick Jensen, in his book “A language older than words” showcases a monologue of torturous life in the first chapter titled silencing. In a world of mixed ethnicities and cultures, jensen wishes to connect and hit homes of the readers with his nerve wrecking message about the existing mushrooming violence. Marveling environmental beauty and the reality of space, he traverses from his memories of the troubled past and guides us to his future and expeditions where he sought lying was the only route to mend his living. The implicit silence that lurks within the society now and since childhood then, is an act of living in a world distant from the truth. In our schooling years whence we all our free birds with no systemisation in our lives, we risk our hearts at the pleasures of being honest and innocent. The education we receive is a monopolistic game play to create disparity between what we are taught and what we experience and feel. The difference makes us stuck in a virtual world where there is a constant conflict between the residence of belief or sight.To survive from which, we must speak lies. With the passage of time, we get bound within the bountiful cultures of knowledge and monotony strikes our lives and we begin to settle. Settle for the way we work, the pattern in which we breathe, the space in which we travel. This life is ushered by physical, mental emotional oppression.However the contemporary era may be, we continue to deny the truth in reality and become mindless, deaf and mute to those in need. “the lies act as barriers to truth.”If one chose to speak, he would be silenced by the oppressing powers of culture, politics in the society. “Consider your own life, the ways you deny your own experience, the ways you have to deaden your own empathies to get through the day.” This subjugation of truth and self acceptance that has been hardwired in our lives sJensen snap shows flashes from his distraught childhood of extreme physical abuse, to which he was made accustomed to as they were ritualised by his father. Making him witness the rule of the powerful, he made jensen sit on the table,quietly,while he assaulted and victimised his family members. after this became a regime, jensen abandoned his belief system and gave up the fight for a change. His father, made him believe in a world which was made out of a figment of his imagination.To him, this ‘control’ over his thoughts and subsequently actions was ‘normal’. although The intensity of torture and pain inflicted over jensen was a customised service upon him done by his father;he was made to believe that this was the routine for him. Escaping from such incidences was a question of human dignity, more of all, his survival. How did he cater to this acute urge to survive? By lying.Jensen rightfully demonstrates how violence speaks the language of lies. “do not believe a word I write in this book, about my father, about the culture, about anything.” Jensen puts the reader in a state of epistemic ambivalence when he contradicts himself and his stories in an attempt to fabricate the truth. For even then, he wishes to make his ends meet. However unbelievable these covers may be, they must always serve as the barrier for truth to colour the horrid reality. He caged himself in a rock crystallized world where he chose silence over speech, calm over revolt and lies over truth. He quotes R.D Laing “ if our experience is destroyed we have lost our own selves” which is precisely jensen’s trial. By denying of it all being happened at the first place, he attempts on losing those memories. These fabrications are the only bread to the subjugated human, suffocating inside the uniform bars of falsehood.History reflects the human tendency to turn a blind eye and lie about the existence of the to existence of successive damaging events. The study from the Allport, Bruner and Jandorf , psychologists of the holocaust and the transformation of the oppressed,from victims to survivors, is hard hitting one. In that period of constant misery and turmoil, steadily victims adapted to their fate,they became tolerant. This tolerance came by the harvest of escapism in their sweet,small endeavors as a mechanism for survival. They found their abode in mozart, business trips and leisure at the countryside. This helped them carve out their world of facades and live in an unreal reality. Jensen attempts the same by reaching out to the naturally expressive yet unspeaking and unhearing stars and moons. “I did not die because they spoke to me.”Jensen snap shows flashes from his distraught childhood of extreme physical abuse, to which he was made accustomed to as they were ritualised by his father. Making him witness the rule of the powerful, he made jensen sit on the table ,quietly,while he assaulted and victimised his family members. By staining his head, instead of painting a fresh leaf, it became a regime, jensen abandoned his belief system and gave up the fight for a change. His father, made him believe in a world which was made out of a figment of his imagination.To him, this ‘control’ over his thoughts and subsequently actions was ‘normal’. although The intensity of torture and pain inflicted over jensen was a customised service upon him done by his father;he was made to believe that this was the routine for him.

This tolerance came by the harvest of escapism in their sweet,small endeavors as a mechanism for survival. They found their abode in mozart, business trips and leisure at the countryside. This helped them carve out their world of facades and live in an unreal reality. By staunch He reaches out to the time when humans see but don’t acknowledge, hear but not listen and register quite what happens around them. He talks of a time when if a grenade were to roll across on the floor, it humans won’t realize it and turn a blind eye to them. Grease,oil and barrels all of which are uncommon to an average working class human, would be highly common. To the dockworkers and factory-men and thus, dangers in a mill would be shortly adjusted to their lifestyle. They too live in a little world of their own lies, ruled by terror but governed by their own escape.Humans are the tenants of the hyperbole of their deception and by each passing moment of progression or digression they save themselves by being stagnant in their own times. . There are atrocities, havocs, desirous activities, disasters and other moments of upheavels for an average human, imagining an illusionary universe can provide a necessary escape. Hence comes the dire need for adopting false mechanisms. False mechanism provides a fraudulent environment which is subjective to everyone, even if so in reality there is a mass in the common pit. In Jensen’s state of constant denial and neglect of reality, he dwells on his experience and faded memories, even while trying to let go of it. They are always arriving in a constant state of departure. We are silencing the reality which begs our interest and action. And even though we go on eons and eons, we are only here for the fraction of fraction of a second and so we stand in a pool of human built subdued untruths. A pool of veils on truth,  made by the subject hood of individuals ,granted to it by the society to facilitate existence. After all the romanticism of relativity theory lies in the passage of time which depends directly as to where we are standing. In past, present, future or just an unreal world decorated by lies of our own.

Safety of women is our moral responsibility

Girls should be Understood, Listen to them how they feel, Appreciate them the way they are, Be with them when they need you the most, Help them to overcome insecurity, In isolated place do take care if you find her trapped..But sad to it does not happen, coz we do not consider it as our moral responsibility to keep our girls safe.Society is male dominated, so we fail to see how girls actually suffer and go through pains in everyday of their life. Whether it’s standing alone for bus, at railway station, in school, colleges, at jobs, working in police or army, being a housewife or being a daughter in law.Girl goes through molestation & domestic violence, even by their near & dear ones whom they trust the most. Our society has created boundaries for a girl how to dress, how to go around, where to sit, when to talk, how much to study, when to get married & even her career path is decided by the parents or in laws if they allow her to work.Why can’t people be normal with girl’s behaviour? Everybody has their own brains & can distinguish between good or bad, between right & wrong, pro & cos of the action that they take. Why does our society teach girls all the times & not the guys to be decent with their acts?Even if we dressed up in jeans, suit or sari men still tend to see you from top to bottom like an x-ray machine, plz ask us how uncomfortable it feels to be there. Woman can’t even feed their babies in public coz it makes it awkward for her.In offices if you talk nicely with any guy, go for dinner or a cup of coffee, people start assuming that there is something fishy between the two & people start giggling, passing comment, rumours etc etc & makes hostile work environment for a girl to work. Educated people at good level entertain this sort of nonsense.If after office a girl miss the bus & a male colleague drop her at home, society people starts talking rubbish “raat ko late aatti hai, kitne ladko se chakkar hai” & try to spoil her image & name for no reason.Showing condolence with few incidents like rape, child abuse, teasing & molesting does not make sense, coz that is done to gain political vote, to be in limelight, or to increase your TRP & make money out of it.A coin has two side & society should learn to see both the side without being biased. #smblogcontest

English Vinglish - A mania or a Phobia
 Harsha Darji  
 12 April 2018  

"Hindi Medium" ufff !!! this is rarely heard now a days. Ten to Fifteen years back we often heard parents saying that my child is studying in Hindi medium, Gujarati medium, Marathi medium, govt schools etc & they were comfortable enough to accept that their child is pursuing education in their local language. Studying in Mother tongue was consider as pride for the family years back, but now the picture of the entire education system has changed. English has become so mandatory, that the entire education system has being corrupted & has become a business. To seek admission in reputed school has become dreams for many & out of budget for the middle class family. Parents has to pass through high & lows to meet the demands of the luxurious school, coz it has created a mindset that child will not have good career & life if he/she does not study in convent schools or reputed english medium schools. children coming from the lower middle class family pass through mental depression if fees are not paid on time, money not given for extra curriculum activities or any development activities of such convent & luxuries school. Children are being tortured to such an extent that they do not want to go to school. Apart from school even Coaching classes has become business. Parents need to put their children in good coaching class or study center as well, which is equally costly as schools. I still do not understand, if parents are spending huge amount on school education, than why there is need for coaching class ???? The worst part is even after spending huge amount on both, children are still deprived of real education which means practical education instead of theoretical. Students mug up everything & vomit the same during exams, scores good, but forgets what he/she has learnt as years pass by. The govt schools are in such a bad shape, that the govt itself does not want to change their education system & way of learning. The govt schools are meant for poor this is the taboo that we have for it. The education given here is even more poor that students even cannot complain, neither parents can. If govt is funding to run the government school, than standard of education should be followed, the teacher should be monitored & audits should be conducted, so that education of these schools can be up to the mark, & all the schools whether private of govt are on same page. In fact, fees, education quality, all round development of child etc everything should on same page irrespective of private or govt school. Govt should take initiative to control fees hike & should standardize fees structure so that its affordable for parents & can give them a sigh of relief on their children education. Donations should be strictly stopped & legal action must be taken & must cancel the licences of such schools. Even in corporate world people give so much emphasis on communicating in English that good employees who really work up to the mark stay where they are & someone only with good English seeks promotion. Countries like Singapore, China, Hongkong, Macau & many more uses only their local language to communicate & even the software used are also in their local language. I do not think English is only life, yes is good to talk in English, but one should be comfortable in talking in their local language & should not be felt ashamed even if he/she is different in that crowd. I have seen people making fun of those who often make mistake while talking in English or has incorrect accent, grammar, pronunciation etc. Apart from this yes even though studying in English medium we often fear while going for an interview or writing emails, attending presentations, etc coz we fear of being laughed or criticized by others. English has created fear phobia & we often fail & feel helpless in our personal,social & professional life. Sad but Slowly we all have adopted this English speaking culture, etiquette, life style, way of talking & behaving, that we has lost real I, me & Myself in this RACE & have lost being our-self. Let's keep it simple, let it be any medium, but system of education should be same, standard, affordable, acceptable, and must have bright future for our upcoming generation, society & the nation. Language should not become hurdle in personal & professional life. I have just tried to highlight the painful struggles that parents go through for seeking admission in school, colleges, universities etc for their children. The system requires uniformity in laws & transformation to eradicate corruption & business out of our education system. #smblogcontest 

Asifa Rape case And Indian Political Opportunism
 Surender Negi  
 14 April 2018  

Original Blog#ASIFA was young 8 years native girl raped and killed in Jammu khathava district by people belongs to dogara community (another minor community) over beating case early this year.She was abducted by people on 10 January and her body found around 17 January in Forest in devasted condition. She belongs to bakarwala nomadic community. Her captive has been get JK police protection as one of the rapist was JK police member. Her case been systematically delayed and justice been denied. JK police SP started to framing Hindu Ekta much (a Kashmiri pundit organization which protest against KPs Exodus) because he is known for his pro-Pakistan slangs in JK.JKBC (Jammu Kashmir Bar console) and HEM (Hindu ekata munch) protest over illegal framing of people rather than real culprits of dogara community and demand (read again) for CBI probe for this case. As Soon as protest move, Indian Media (which usually keep their silence on Assam rape case and other cases which has a less Political orientation) surge the news by framing that protest as Hindu protest for saving culprits. The #Sickular media highlighted the details that “Rape done in Temple ” (like nothing ever happened ever other than temple ). In same case Unnnav, 16 years girl been rape and her father beats up by BJP MLA brother to death. This case was different, few dickhead members of BJO might have changed #JaiSreeRam during the protest in Unnah (not Kathava).But Indian Media slurring this news has started to report these two case in same articles which confused people that #JaiShreeRam was told by JKBC and HinduEktaMunch.BJP MLA captures by CBI early this morning and Asifa culprit is capture by JK police later on.POLITICAL OPPORTUNISMParty like Congress and Opposition, irrespective of condemning such rape cases started to use as Political opportunism (Trust me , if this would be Congress govt at center, BJP might be doing open pant protest than Congress). Rahul Gandhi and Man Mohan Singh who had been silent during Nirbhaya Rape Case. Started to act sensitive (after Dalit protest was over) about these rape cases. It’s good, I personally appreciate his gesture but My problem starts with that when addressing this rape culture of India they started to shoot govt by using rape case.Rahul Gandhi and BJP must understand that Rape, Murders crimes are not blaming and accusing of each other or setting benchmarks for each other rule failure. These are the serious problem of our society.The second odd thing which I found that #SelectiveOutrage. This is the most serious thing which is pumping right wings into power. Our Intellectual class and celebrity class live in different India. There selective outrage over only minorities Atrocities been noticed by Millions of people (especially Hindus ) who think that these gatekeepers of democracy is failed to understand their problems.From Kashmiri pundits, 1984 Sikhs riots, Assam rape case to Bengal riots, RSS people killing in Kerala… no justice has been served to them. They have been waiting that someone should also cry for that. But Intellectual class (might be funded by US think tank) maintaining their silence over Hindu Atrocities of the subcontinent.Many of us even don’t know that Mina (8 years Dalit Pakistani Hindu ) been gang rape and killed in similar fashion in Pakistan on March 21. But no Dalit and intellectual class ready to see Hindu atrocities. This making sure that Hindus been grouped like other community and rage case been raised because social justice hasn’t served equally to them.What about Assam rape case Victim- Why media is silence on Assam Rape case?POINT TO PONDER1. Political opportunism must be ended and “what about this ” kind of attitude must end. All Political parties and all intellectual must stand together for #AsifaBakkaerwal and #Mina. If you left #MinaBody I don’t think so ever #AsifaSoul get justice.2. Social justice must be given to all people irrespective of their majority and minorities population. Till the time this social justice would be imbalance and intellectual wouldn’t cry for Hindus also. I don’t think so this kind of crime will be tackled by fist iron.3. I would like to say all my communal and secular friends … Stop using fucking Temple and God into such rape case. You are creating Hinduphobia which is equal to Islamophobia. People killed in real life because of this kind of phobias. Might be asifa also the victim of such phobia cared by Ultra left.8 Years Girl has been Raped in PakistanPS : I think today not only Hindus but Muslims, Sikhs, Christen, Parsis should hang their head on shame irrespective of their country because it’s happening in every country. Our women and daughter are not saved and their atrocities used for Vote bank diversions by Political and Intellectual class.Justice for Asifa and Justice For Mina

#लोकशाहीच्या स्तंभावरचा बलात्कार.

 17 April 2018  

      गेले दोन–चार दिवस सोशल मीडियावर `असिफा` ह्या आठ वर्षाच्या निरपराध मुलीवर झालेल्या बलात्काराच्या निषेधार्थ आपण सगळेजण तिच्याबद्दल फोटो, स्टेटस आणि पोस्टी टाकून भारतीय  न्यायव्यवस्थेवर, धर्माचं राजकारण करणाऱ्यांनावर आणि अप्रत्यक्षरित्या भारतीय लोकशाहीच्या स्तंभांवर आपण `बलात्कार` करत आहोत. आपण वास्तव्य करत अहो तो जगातील सगळ्यात मोठा  लोकशाहीप्रधान देश आहे. आपली लोकशाही चार स्तंभांचा आधार घेत कशी बशी ताठ मानेने उभी आहे. पण जेव्हा `बलात्कारासारख्या` हिडीस घटना होतात तेव्हा हे स्तंभ एक पोकळ बांबू म्हणून लोकशाहीला टेकू देवून उभे असतात.     लोकशाहीचा चौथा स्तंभ; `प्रसिध्दीमाध्यमे`. आजकाल असं वाटतं की, जाती–धर्माची कुबड्या घेतल्याशिवाय टीआरपी वाढतच नाही. बलात्कार एका बालिकेवर झाला ह्यापेक्षा अमुक अमुक धर्माच्या मुलीवर तमुक तमुक धर्माच्या भामट्यांनी बलात्कार केलं अस सांगून आमच्यासमोर TRP ची चमचमीत थाळी वाढली जाते, आणि ती आम्ही अगदी चवीने मिटक्या मारत खातो तो विषय वेगळा. सलमान खानच्या घशाखाली एक रात्र काय तर जेवण उतरलं नाही तर आमचा सल्लू मियां आला हेडलाईन वर पण 8 वर्षाच्या पोरीसाठी 8 ओळींचा मथळा लिहिण्यासाठी ह्यांच्याकडे रिकामी जागा नसते. ते ही आम्हाला मित्राने टाकलेल्या स्टेटस वरून समजते. मग अमाची पण वाटचाल #justiceforasifa च्या दिशेने सुरू होते. अजुन तरी काय करणार हो आम्ही.     लोकशाहीचा तिसरा स्तंभ; `प्रशासन`. आता राजकारण्यांच्या रक्तातच `राजकारण` असल्याने ते बलात्कारासारख्या गंभीर विषयामध्येही आपल्या मताची पोळी भाजून घेतात. आम्ही रात्री अपरात्री मेणबत्त्या तर जाळतो पण ते अंधकारात लोटलेल्या पिडीतेच्या परिवाराला सांत्वनाच्या प्रकाशात आणण्यासाठी नाही तर मेणबत्तीच्या ज्यालाचा वापर करून विरोधी पक्षांबद्दल लोकांच्या मनात कसा जाळ पेटवता येईल ह्यासाठी जळत्या मेणबत्यांचं प्रदर्शन भरवल जातं. आणि राहिला प्रश्न सरकारच, ते पीडितेच्या कुटुंबीयांना लाखभराची पुंजी देऊन त्यापुढील कारभार न्यायपालिकेवर सोपवून आपले हात झिडकारून देते.       लोकशाहीचं सगळ्यात जास्त विश्वासपात्र स्तंभ; `न्यायपालिका`. आता तरी न्यायदेवताने डोळ्यावरची पट्टी काढावी असं वाटतं. प्रश्न असा आहे की, त्या पोरीच्या कोवळ्या मांसावर तुटून पडणाऱ्या कुत्र्यांनी क्षणाचाही विलंब केलं नाही, ना मनी कोणती लाज बाळगली मग बलात्कार झाल्यावर अशा रानटी कुत्र्यांना न्यायपालिका चार–पाच वर्ष का कुरवाळत बसते ?  का फुकटची पोसते अशा नराधमाांना ? बलात्कार झाल्यावर रस्त्यावर जनतेला मेणबत्तीला माचिस लावल्याशिवाय जर त्या निरपराध पीडितेला न्याय मिळत नसेल तर संविधानाच्या पहिल्या  पानावर धूळ बसली आहे असं आपल्याला नाही वाटतं?लोकांना स्तब्ध करणारे असे आहेत हे आपले लोकशाहीचे स्तंभ.                                                 परवा ज्या महामानवाची जयंती आहे ते आंबेडकर सांगून गेले की, `आपण सगळ्यात आधी आणि शेवटी एक भारतीय आहोत`. माफ करा पण मी त्याही पुढे जावून असं म्हणतो की,` आपण एक भारतीयाच्या अगोदर एक माणूस आहोत`. तरीपण माणसासारख वागायला आपल्याला का इतकं जड जातंय हो. त्या बलात्कार झालेल्या कोवळ्या जीवापेक्षा ज्यांना खरचं आपला धर्म, जात, पंत, पक्ष इतका मोठा वाटतो त्यांनी दोन मिनिट डोळे बंद करून कल्पनेतच त्या `असिफा`च्या जागी आपल्या पोटच्या पोरीला, बहिणीला, मैत्रिणीला किंवा आपल्या ओळखीच्या कोणत्याही `ती`ला उभ करा. उत्तर नक्की मिळेल, `मानवता`पेक्षा कोनाताही मोठा धर्म नाही.#Justice_For_Asifa..!©मोरे_गणेश.

कहानीअपने पराये      सुजीता दोपहर  की चाय बना रही थी, की डोरबेल बजी।सोफे पर बेठी उसकी सासने उसके हस्बैंड का लेबोरेटरी से आया नया रिपोर्ट लिया और पढ़कर,'हे भगवान ये कैसी मुसीबत हमारे परिवार पार आ गिरी है?"किचन में से भागती सुजीता आयी और जल्दी से रिपोर्ट देखा,साथ में डॉक्टर ने बम्बई के किसी बड़े अस्पताल में जाजा़कर इलाज कराने की चिट्ठी भी लिखी थी।सुजीता की आँखों से आंसू बरस पड़े।उसकी सास तो अगली पिछली बाते निकालकर सुनाती रही।"तेरा कुछ ध्यान नहीं है,तेरी पार्ट टाइम नौकरी और छुट्टी के दिन सहेलियों के साथ किटी पार्टी …"वगैराह'धीरे बोलिये मम्मीजी अभी उनकी तबियत ठीक नहीं है, आज डेढ़ महीना हो गया ऑफिस भी नहीं जा रहे,ये सब सुनेंगे तो और ज्यादा दुखी होंगे।अब तो हमें कैसे उनको जल्दी इलाज करके ठीक करना है और इतने लम्बे समय तक चलनेवाली ट्रीटमेंट का खर्च भी तो जुटाना है।उनके इन्शयोरन्स का पैसा भी काफी नहीं हैऔर हम सब महिला किटी में सिर्फ मज़ा करने थोडे जाते है ?सामजिक कार्यो से भी तो जुड़े है,आप हमेशा मेरी गलती निकलती रहती है और हमारी नन्ही सी गुड़िया बेटी  त्रीया से भी रुखा व्यवहार करते है।ये सुनकर सुजीता की सास शांत होकर अपने रुम में चली गयी।सुजीता ने सबको चाय दी और अपने पति रूवीन को धीरे धीरे बाते समजा़ने लगी की, अब हमें बाहर जाकर इलाज करवाना पडेगा।दूसरे दिन से सुजीता तैयारी में जुट गयी।अपनी पांच सालकी बेटी त्रिया की रेसीडेंशल स्कूल से इतनी तो राहत थी की बच्ची उतने समय स्कूल की होस्टेल मे अच्छी निगरानी में रहे सकेगी।त्रीया को समजा़कर  उसकि दो तीन फ्रेंड वगैराह को बुलाकार समजा़ लिया।अपनी ऑफिस से बिना सेलेरी से दो महीने की छुट्टी भी लीउसकी सास ने दो तीन सम्बंदिओ से फोन करके बात की और कुछ आर्थिक मदद के बारे मे भी बताया लेकिन सबने कुछ न कुछ बहाने बनाकर ताल दिया।सुजीता की दो तीन सहेलियों का फोन आया और सुजिताने अपनी मुश्किल बतायी लेकिन सबने हाँ सोचेंगे वगैराह बाते की।उसकी सास भी साथ आने को तैयार हुई लेकिन सुजिताने कहा,आप को तकलीफ होगी मेरा भाई थोड़े दिन छुट्टी लेकर साथ रहेगा फिर जैसे ट्यूमर का  पहला माइनर ओपरेशन हो जाएगा बाद मे रिपोर्ट आये फिर आप आना"बातें कर रहे थे उतने में सुजीता की किटी पार्टी के प्रमुख नीताबेन और साथ में ओर दो बहेनें आयी और सुजीता को आश्र्वस्त करते हुए एक चेक दिया और कहने लगे,"आप बिलकुल चिंता मत करना,अपनी संस्था के भंडोल से सबने मिलकर ये रकम आपको इलाज के लिए दे रहे है जिसमें आधा तो हम सब की तरफ से है और आधी रकम आप धीरे धीरे करके भर सकेंगे ,ईश्वर की कृपा से सब कुछ ठीक हो जाएगा”बोलते सबकी आँखे भर आयी और सुजीता आंसू भरी आंखो से धन्यवाद करते हुए अपनी सास की सबसे पहचान करवाई।सुजीता की सास भी एकदम से रो पड़ी और सबसे धन्यवाद करते हुए बोली,"सुजीता,सचमें समय बदलते ही कभी अपने पराये  हो जाते है और जिन्हें पराये समझते है वो अपने बन जाते है "-मनीषा जोबन देसाई

ग्लोबल वार्मिंग और हम

Happy earth day 2018विषय-वैश्विक तापमान कारण और निवारणसदियों से तपती इस धरा पर जाने कितने अत्याचार और बदलाव आये है।वैसे तो कुदरत से मिली हरेक सम्पति से वो भरपूर है,लेकिन मानवजाती ने खुद को और अपनी आनेवाली पीढी को ब्रह्मांड में एक नयी पहचान देने की जब से ठान ली हैऔर इसके लिए जाने कितने ही आविष्कारों से धरती को सजायें जा रहे है।क़ुदरत की अखुट संपत्ति से लबरेज़ हरियाली धरती अब कहीं कहीं से बंज़र दिखती जा रही है।अपने आपको विश्वमानव बनाने की धुन थी तब तक तो ठीक था,लेकिन वहाँ से ओर ऊपर उठकर अवकाश में भी अपनी जगा बनाकर सब से ताकतवर बनने की होड़ लगी है।औद्योगिक क्रान्ति तो मानवजात के उज्जवल भविष्य के लिए बहुत ही आवकारदायक कदम है लेकिन केमिकल के उपयोग से दूषित पानी की समस्या और समुद्रजीवो के निकंदन से जैविक संतुलन बिगड़ रहा है।सरकार के द्वारा क़ानून बनाकर ठोस कदम उठाये गए है, लेकिन अपनी महत्वकांक्षाओ को "स्काय इस घ लिमिट "समजनेवाले ग्लोबल विकासी कहीं रुकने को तैयार नहीं।कन्स्ट्रक्शन इंन्डस्ट्री में भी काफी पेैबंदिया लगाने के बावजूद बेफाम बढ़ती बहुमाली इमारतों की वजह से महानगरों में काफी दिक्कतों का सामना कर रहे लोग।जैसे न्यूयॉर्क में कभी ऐसा भी हुआ था की ऊँची इमारते बनने लगी और आमने सामने स्ट्रीट बन गयी तो कम गेप छोड़ने की वजह से अन्धेरा रहने लगा और फिर नियम बनाये गए ,उसी के मुताबिक़ डेवलोपमेन्ट बढ़ाया जा रहा है लेकिन अब भी जैसे जैसे डेवलोपमेन्ट बढ़ा मार्किट एरिया और रहेने की पुरानी जगाओ पर वही समस्याए खड़ी हे। जैसे ट्राफिक की वजह से कितने मानवसमय का क्षय हो रहा है और मेरे ख्याल से जल्दी पहुंचने की दौड में जो आविष्कार किये गए उस के बावजूद वहीं के वहीं रहे जा रहे है।टेक्नोलोजी -मोबाईल-कमप्युटर उद्योगों का धुंआ और पेट्रोल डीज़ल का प्रदुषण दोनों मानवजीवन की शारीरिक क्षमता को क्षीण कर रहे है।समजदार देश भी अपनी ताकत दिखाने के लिये अणुपरिक्षण का मोह छोड नहीं रहें।खुले वातवरण से मिलनेवाली शुद्ध हवा जैसे महानगरों में एक याद बन गयी है।दूषीत पानी और दूषीत हवा से कितनी भयंकर बीमारियों का शिकार बन रहा हे मानवी।वैसे तो सरेराश आयु बढ़ी है मेडिकल संशोधन के कारण,लेकिन फिर भी समस्याएं कम नहीं हुई।सो साल जीने की तमन्ना करने वाला इंसान एक के बाद एक समस्याओ से ज़ुज़ रहा है, ग्लोबल वॉर्मिंग की वजह जंगलो का काटना,और प्लास्टिक का ज्यादा उपयोग होने की वजह से "ओज़ोन "लेयर में ब्लेक हॉल का विस्तार बढ़ा जिसकी वजह से सूरज की तेज रेडियन किरणे बढ़ने लगी,जो स्किन कैंसर वगैराह बढ़ने का मुख्य कारण है। ये तो सब समस्याए है,लेकिन उसका उपाय भी वही बुद्धिजीवियों को ढूंढना होगा जिन्होंने ये सब खड़ा किया है,नयी पिढी को इस समस्या से अवगत कराके उन्हें कुदरत से ज्यादा नजदीक रहने से लिए सामाजिक जागृति अभियान और हमारे गाँवों में भी जिस तरह से आधुनिकरण हो रहा है वहाँ पर वर्कशॉप करके और स्कूल के विद्यार्थी और शिक्षकों द्वारा ज्ञानजाग्रुति अभियान चलायें तभी सब आनेवाली पीढ़ी के लिए पानी,हरियाली शुद्ध हवा और हमारे जरुरी खनिज वगैराह बचा सकेंगे ।सिर्फ हमारी सरकार के प्रयत्न ही नहीं सभी को खुद समज़कर अपने पैरो पर कुल्हाड़ी मारना बंध करना चाहिए।"जय ग्लोबल विश्व”जब सब अच्छे से जियेंगे तभी तो जीवन आगे बढ़ेगा।-मनीषा जोबन देसाई सूरत -गुजरात -इण्डिया

क्या कहती हैं विज्ञापन की छवियाँ
 Jiya Prasad  
 20 May 2018  

जीवन एक बहुत बड़ा फ़लक है जिसमें तमाम तरह के अनुभव सांस लेते हैं। यह किसी बैंक खाते के अंदर मौजूद दूसरा छोटा खाता होता है जिसमें हम अपनी थोड़ी थोड़ी बचत रखते जाते हैं और जरूरत के समय उसका उम्दा इस्तेमाल करने की कोशिश करते हैं। जब रोज़मर्रा में कुछ अलहदा टकराता है तब एक के बाद एक अनुभव खुलने लगते हैं। ये अच्छे और बुरे तो होते ही हैं और संख्या में भी अधिकहोते हैं।हम औरतों के लंबे से अनुभव संचय होते रहे हैं। हमारे समय की एक विशेषता यह भी है कि अनुभवों के कई तरह की सतहें जुड़ रही हैं और इनका रुख बाहर की दुनिया की ओर भी है। अब किसी भी औरत के पास अपने दफ़्तर, स्कूल, कॉलेज, सड़क, दुकान, बाज़ार, पार्क आदि जगहों से जुड़े कई तजुर्बे बनते हुए दिखाई और सुनाई देते हैं। निश्चित तौर पर हम एक लंबा सफर कर के आ रहे हैं और आज अपने हकों के लिए लगातार आवाज़ उठा रहे हैं। फिर भी हमें उन छवियों से सावधान रहना ही पड़ेगा जिनमें एक ‘इंसान’ को वस्तु या एक ही फ्रेम में क़ैद करके पेश किया जा रहा है। वास्तव में विज्ञापन की दुनिया में या फिर डिजिटल जगत में छाई हुई कुछ छवियों पर एक संज्ञान लेने की इस युवा महिला-पुरुष पीढ़ी को ज़रूरत है। हमारे साथी पुरुषों को यह सोचना ही होगा कि औरत कोई बे-दिमाग प्राणी या रोबोट नहीं है जो एक अदना सा सेंट सूंघकर उस पर फिदा हो जाएगी। जब भी इस तरह के विज्ञापन टीवी पर प्रसारित हों, तब यह जरूर सोचें कि यह अपने उत्पाद को बेचने की घटिया रचनात्मकता भर है और उन पर तरस खाएं। महिलाओं को यह जरूर मुंह खोल कर और तेज़ आवाज़ में बताना चाहिए कि यह एक घटिया विज्ञापन है जो सरासर भ्रामकता पैदा करता है। प्रेम और मोह जैसे भाव नितांत आत्मिक होते हैं जिनका सेंट और उसकी महक से दूर दूर तक कोई लेना देना नहीं है। फोन सेवा देने वाली भारत की एक बड़ी कंपनी का विज्ञापन बेहद आराम से आधी आबादी को एक सेविका के ही फ्रेम में फिट करने का गेम खेल रही है। विज्ञापन का सार यह है कि पत्नी दफ़्तर में मालकिन है और पति एक कर्मचारी। वह महिला काम के प्रति प्रतिबद्ध है। लेकिन दूसरे ही दृश्य में वह घर पर जाकर खाना बनाती है और वीडियो कॉल करके इंतज़ार करने की बात कहती है। यह विज्ञापन पहली नज़र में बिलकुल सादा और आकर्षक है। लोगों को प्रेम सा एहसास देने के लिए काफी है। लेकिन यह बहुत खतरनाक है कि दफ्तर में भी काम करो और घर पर जाकर खाना बनाओ। वास्तव में जिस बात को हल्के से लिया गया है वह महिला श्रम है। थकान दोनों को होती है। घर और उसके अंदर के भाग भी लंबे समय से औरतों के लिए पक्के किए जाते रहे हैं। जैसे दहलीज़ पर नहीं खड़ा होना चाहिए, खिड़की से नहीं झांकना चाहिए आदि। जब मेहमान आए तो कोई लड़की उनके सामने न आए, जैसी रस्म आज भी हमारे कस्बों और शहरों में दिखती है। दरवाज़ों पर लगे पर्दों का पूरा विमर्श ही हम औरतों को इंगित करता है। इन सब से अधिक रसोई के अंदर जमी हुई छवि माँ व पत्नी के नाम ही सुपुर्द है। इसलिए कहीं न कहीं इन परंपरागत छवियों को चटकाना जरूरी है। एक बार चटकी तो टूटेंगी जरूर। इसी तरह एक मोटर साईकिल का विज्ञापन टीवी पर दिखाया जाता है। विज्ञापन के नेपथ्य में एक राजस्थानी गाना चलता है जो सुनने में अच्छा लगता है। लेकिन इस विज्ञापन पर पर्याप्त निगाह डालकर समझना जरूरी है। महिला पानी भरने दूर रेगिस्तान में गई है और उसके पास लगभग पाँच पानी के धातु के छोटे-बड़े घड़े हैं। वह राह पर खड़ी है। तभी एक मोटर साईकिल वाला आता है और वह पीछे बैठती है। अपने सिर पर लगातार पाँचों घड़ों को लिए बैठी, वह यह देखती है कि घड़े गिर नहीं रहे हैं। मोटर साईकिल ऐसे चलाई जाती है कि महिला को झटके नहीं लगते और उसका पानी नहीं गिरता। अंत में गाने में कहते भी हैं- ‘झटका झूठ लागे रे!’ विज्ञापन भले ही मोटर साईकिल के पुर्जों और बनावट का है फिर भी राजस्थानी महिला की वही पूर्ववत छवि है। अब या तो राज्य सरकारों ने अपना काम इतने सालों से ठीक नहीं किया कि आज भी उन्हें पानी लेने जाना पड़ता है। या फिर इन कंपनियों के रचनात्मक विभाग इतने दयनीय क्यों होते हैं कि वे किन्हीं दूसरी छवियों के बारे में सोच नहीं पाते? एक दिलचस्प तथ्य यह भी है कि जब गूगल पर अंग्रेज़ी में विलेज़ विमीन टाइप किया जाता है तब महिलाओं के घिसे-पिटे चित्र भी साथ में दिखाये जाते हैं। उनमें से अधिकतर गाँव की महिलाओं को चूल्हा-चौका, खेतों में काम करते हुए, पनघट में पानी भरते हुए मटकों के साथ, रोटी थापते हुए, घर की चार दीवारी में, किसी के इंतज़ार में रहते हुए दिखाया गया है। दिलचस्प यह है कि उनके पास गाँव की महिलाओं की किसी दूसरी छवि की कल्पना ही नहीं है। यह एक अदृश्य पर भयानक तथ्य है। जिसे हम बेहद सामान्य तौर-तरीकों से लेते हैं। इसलिए गढ़ी गई छवियों से डर लगता है। यह ख़्वाहिश है कि ये सभी गढ़ी हुई छवियाँ टूटे और हम भी किसी कलाकार के रूप में, यात्री के रूप में, किसी फोटोग्राफर के रूप में, जंगल में सफारी करते हुए, आसमानी राइडिंग करते हुए, समुद्री ट्रिप का मज़ा लेते हुए आदि छवियों में दिखें और पहचानी जाएँ। ये सब छवियाँ ऐसा नहीं हैं कि मौजूद नहीं हैं पर वे सिर्फ एक वर्ग तक सीमित हैं। एक आम महिला भी यह सब कर ही सकती है तो वे क्यों न दिखे! अंतर्राष्ट्रीय महिला दिवस के आने पर हम महिला सशक्तिकरण की बातें करने के मोड में आ जाते हैं। रैलियाँ निकाली जाती हैं। बैनर बड़े आकार में दिखने लगते हैं। कुछ ख़ास क़िस्म के नारे तेज़ आवाज़ों में सुनाई देने लगते हैं। सरकारी और गैरसरकारी संगठन अपनी आवाज़ें बुलंद करते हैं। आधी आबादी तुरंत ब्रेकिंग न्यूज़ की तस्वीरों में बदल जाती है। ये सब अच्छा है लेकिन उन मुद्दों का क्या जिनकी वास्तव में खबर लेनी चाहिए। देश में अब भी उन कच्चे और पके हुए औरताना अनुभवों की सुध नहीं ली जाती जो आधी आबादी के सशक्तिकरण के संकेतक हैं। पढ़ चुकी बिटियाओं के लिए अब भी रोजगार दूर का चाँद है जो बस दिखता है पर कभी हासिल नहीं होता। सुरक्षा भी एक बड़ा मुद्दा है। इन सब मुद्दों के साथ बाज़ार द्वारा घटिया और परंपरागत जली-कुटी छवियों को भी महत्वपूर्ण मानना पड़ेगा। आज हर हाथ में मोबाइल है और हर कोई वीडियो-फिल्म्स देखने का दीवाना है। ऐसे में ये बाजारी विज्ञापन औरतों की गलत छवि पेश करते हैं जिनका हमें संज्ञान लेना ही होगा।  (Painting by Thomas Hammer)

A positive response to an introduction to birds
 saurabh pant  
 9 July 2018  

When I went on to type on this book and I have decided that It will be going to be my 1st Gk book, I might have not thought so many facts in consent and I may have been wondering whether It may get the involvement of the digital circles as My other poetry collections or other recent writing works have gone through But if I might have been thinking that in terms of international stature this experiment can challenge my pride then I have been fairly wrong and It proved out to be a remarkable journey till more than 1 month has gone by and It has been well received in international circles with particularly those countries taking hand on who prefer Environmental commitments and giving me the hope to survive well and do more better writing commitments.As a beginning fact, It was firstly great to take on the command after request to Nick sir to edit things well and hence after the approval of publisher the Ebook was re-published with complete satisfactory feedback by Lulu on 11th of March, with request of adapting some changes, and since then the Ebook has gone well and has given a trademark settlement to have in which the biggest commitment may be from Japan and Australia whose government has taken their responsible commitment to give me edge and hence the Ebook has been put into their websites through Kobo availability support which I has also shared on the Social media so it has been a positive beginning to start at first with bigger impact and bigger officials giving their priority to launch myself to a strong position. Apart from that As I said in beginning that those countries who prefer environmental commitments have done well to respond and China, Japan, Norway, Sweedon, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand and other countries are giving great response as a starting point to the Ebook which feels great and boost my technical advantage in the wider stage as a digital writer so their commitment really give great value and the Oceanic and South East countries are also expanding the positive stand for the Ebook which feels good to look and give strong boost to examine and extend positive stature all around. No doubt the Ebook is a GK book and it talks about various species of Birds introducing their basic behaviour, natural habitat, and high classified complex culture but it is also an Ebook that not only talks about natural life but as well as the virtual scope with the biosphere impact and hence I am hoping that being an Environmental Ebook this one will be equally well responded as Warming boom and shall take my stature to a better level so readers thanks for your blessings, keep reading and keep backing me up which would be a great set up to gain momentum, and give proper aid and support which will result phenomenally and continue to inspire me to write more and more by all means...

स्वतंत्रता
 Dayal Sharan Shrivastava  
 15 August 2018  

देश आज ब्रटिश राज से मुक्ति के 71 वर्ष पूर्ण कर चुका है और हम सभी इसे स्वतंत्रता दिवस के रूप में मना रहे हैं। आप सभी को हार्दिक बधाई।16 अगस्त 1947 से हम कुछ और गुलामी से मुक्ति के लिए संघर्षरत हैं। आज के परिपेक्ष्य में यदि इस दिशा में हुई प्रगति का अवलोकन नहीं होगा तो प्रगति चिन्हित करना बेमानी लगेगा। अंग्रेज गए पर वे विरासत में देश की खस्ता हाल अर्थव्यवस्था छोड़ गए। वे देश विभाजन, संकुचित और आत्म केन्द्रित राजनीति के वे माइन्स छोड़ गए जिनमे अब तक घातक विस्फोट हो रहे हैं। वे फूट डालो और शासन करो के उस राजनैतिक विनाशक सिद्धांत को रोप गए जिससे यदि कुछ मुट्ठी भर लोग थोड़ा विकास कार्य करते भी हैं तो वह भी आज के दृष्टिकोण से गौण बन जाता है।दस साल के लिए जारी आरक्षण की सुविधा चुनाव जिताऊ मन्त्र बन कर आज तक टूल के रूप में उपलब्ध है। जिन लाभार्थियों का जीवन स्तर गुणात्मक रूप से सुधरा भी है वे भी स्वत: इस सुविधा के सतत उपभोग से खुद को अलग नहीं कर पा रहे हैं।अर्थ व्यवस्था का वह पुरसाने हाल है कि एक मध्यम या उच्च वर्गीय कर्मचारी अपने सालाना वेतन के एक से दो माह का वेतन आयकर में चुकाने के बाद भी अनेकों इन डायरेक्ट टैक्स चुका कर देश की अर्थ व्यवस्था पर भार होती तमाम व्यवस्थाओं को पोषित कर रहा है।औद्योगिक विकास का यह आलम है कि 80-90 के दशक में हम जिन कुछ वस्तुओं का उत्पादाब खुद कर लेते थे उत्पादन मूल्य बढ़ने से वे उत्पाद चीन के सस्ते उत्पादों के आगे टिक नहीं पाए और धीरे-धीरे वे इकाइयां बंद हो कर विलुप्त हो गयीं।इतिहास बतलाता है कि अवध पर जब हमला हुआ था तो वहां के सत्ताधीश मनोरंजन में डूबे हुए थे। यह वाकया अपने आप में बहुत बड़ा सामाजिक और राजनैतिक संदेश चेतावनी के रूप में देता है। लोग फेस-बुक और व्हाट्स एप में उलझे रहें या माल्स में फिल्मे और टी वी पर सीरियल देखते रहें किसी एडिक्ट की तरह और समाज तथा देश का धीरे-धीरे पतन और क्षरण होता रहे।ऐसा नहीं है कि देश में विकास कार्य हुआ ही नहीं है, समस्या यह है कि यह कार्य कभी भी भूत काल से सबक सीखकर भविष्य की आवश्यकताओं को दृष्टिगत रखकर नहीं हुआ। सडके बनाने के बाद ध्यान आया कि नाली बनानी थी, सड़क फिर खोद डाली। फिर ध्यान आया कि टेलीफोन के केबल नहीं डल पाए तो उसे भी डालने के लिए सड़क खोद दी। जिन चौराहों पर नेताओं की आदमकद प्रतिमाएं लगायीं थीं उन्हें पुनरुद्धार के नाम पर रंग कर फवारा लगाने के क्रम में बची खुची सड़क फिर खोद दी गयी। फिर सडक रिपेयर की गयी और फिर लगा कि ट्रैफिक बढ़ गयी है तो मैट्रो ट्रेन चला दी जाए। लीजिये फिर नए सिरे से निर्माण को फिर नई दिश मिल गयी। ऐसा नहीं है कि इप्लीमेंटशन टीम को एग्जक्यूशन टीम को इसका पूर्वाभास् नहीं होता पर वे इन सब से बेखबर रहकर सिर्फ दिए गए काम को पूर्ण करने का यत्न करते हैं। एक आयकर दाता की हैसियत से हमे यह पूछने का हक़ है कि इस तरह जनता का गाढी कमाई का पैसा इस तरह लुटाने वाले लोग कहीं किसी भी प्रकार की जवाबदेही लिए नौकरी कर रहे हैं।विकासशील देशों में इन्फ्रास्ट्रक्चर पर लंबे समय तक काम चलता है, लेकिन कितने लंबे समय तक यह भी एक प्रश्न के रूप में उभरा है। एक तरफ हम खुद को विश्वस्तर के देश के रूप में साबित करने पर लगे हैं, कहाँ यह उखड़ी सड़कें और परत पर परत खुलते घोटाले विकास की एक दूसरी कहानी कह रहे हैं।बात हताश होने की होगी क्यूंकि बेतरतीब दौड़कर आप किसी लक्ष्य तक नहीं पहुंच सकते, लेकिन निराश मत होएं, हर व्यक्ति खुद आत्मावलोकन करे, जाने कि संविधान के अधिकार कर्त्तव्यों के अनुपालन पर ही आपको मिलेंगे। आरक्षण आपकी बैसाखी है, इसे विरासत मत बनने दीजिये। किसी भी योजनाओं पर भविष्य की आवश्यकताओं का आंकलन कर ही परियोजना पर अमल करें और अनावश्यक खुद का और आमजन की मेहनत का पैसा ना खर्च करें ना करने दें। सिर्फ सीमा पे सैनिक खड़े करके या उनका बलिदान करवाके तो आप सीमा पर आक्रमण और अतिक्रमण रोक सकते हैं किन्तु जो देश अपनी तकनीकी क्रान्ति के बल पर आपकी मांग अनुरूप तुलनात्मक रूप से सस्ताक उत्पाद लेकर आपके बाजार में घुसपैठ कर चुके हैं और आपके देश को बेरोजगारी की दोजख में धकेल चुके हैं उनसे उनके स्तर पर लड़ने का समय है। इन सब में एक बात जो कहीं छूटी जा रही थी वह परिवार के लिए वांछित समय निकालने का है। आप जानिये कि तमाम छुट्टियों का प्रावधान होने के बावजूद भी बहुत से नियोक्ता अपने कर्मचारियों का इतना अधिक शोषण करते हैं कि वे उन्हें छुट्टियों में भी काम करने को उद्वेलित करते हैं। जबकि परिवार और समाज के प्रति भी किसी भी व्यक्ति की जिम्मेदारी को नकारा नहीं जा सकता। यह श्रमिकों पर गुलामी के हावी होने का एक और मिश्र रूप है, जो अंग्रेजों के जाने के बाद भी लागू है। कोई भी व्यक्ति कम्प्यूटर की तरह मल्टी टास्किंग नहीं हो सकता। कई सारे काम को इकट्ठा करवाने के दबाव में या तो वह अपना आउट्पुट बिगाड लेता है या सोशल बैक ग्राउण्ड में आउट आफ फोकस हो जाता है। आओ समझिये कि देश का नागरिक देश को अपनी सन्तान के रूप में तभी एक सजग विरासत सौप पायेगा जब उसे अपनी सन्तान के उद्भव और विकास में उसका निर्धारित रोल निभाने दिया जाएगा। जीविका के लिए काम का अपना दायरा है और परिवार के लिए समय देने का अपना महत्त्व है। अगर यहाँ सोशल इंजीनियरिंग फेल हुई तो देश को हम विरासत में एक कुंठित और बिखरा हुआ समाज ही दे पायेंगे जहां पड़ोसी तो दूर बच्चों का अपने माँ-बाप से भी कोई सरोकार नहीं होगा। तब देश का क्या होगा??? भावनात्मकता विहीन समाज की परिकल्पना यदि स्वरूप लेगी तो पाषाण युग की तरफ हमारा गमन सुनिश्चित है।निराश नहीं होना है, देश के भीतर कर्मरत तमाम व्यक्ति खुद अपने आप में एक सैनिक समझे जो सीमा के भीतर फैली कुव्यवस्थाओं के खिलाफ लड़ने वाला समझे। ईमानदारी से देश की प्रजातांत्रिक व्यवस्था को सुघड़ रखे, मतदान का हिस्सा बने, योग्य नेतृत्व का चयन करे और देश को समग्र विकास की दिशा में गतिमान करे।तमाम विकासोन्मुखी, समग्र विकास की संभावनाओं का प्रयोग कर देश आर्थिक गुलामी से उबरे, सोशल इंजीनियरिंग का प्रयोग कर सामजिक समरसता लाये, जात-पात के बंधन से मुक्त हो, शोषक और शोषित की परिभाषाओं को इतिहास बनाए और सीमा पर खडे सैनिकों का आत्मबल बन कर देश को शारीरिक रूप से प्रबल करे, प्रजातांत्रिक मूल्यों की रक्षा करते हुए कुशल और शिक्षित नेतृत् को चुने। पुन:श्च स्वतंत्रता दिवस पर हार्दिक बधाई।

Disguised
 Syeda Shua Zaidi

I am no hard core feminist you people, but it is evident that our society is ready for many more Kathuas to encounter, so bear me for this one. I believe that the space we are living in is not a perfect and pragmatic Indian institution, rather a street that tastes damp and sticky sweet and is a disguised ideal society, if viewed from a distance. We are still residing in the streets of atrocity since for a major part of us, women are mere humans. Oh wait, do they even fall into the category of humans, who have so ecstatically accepted the standards of behaviour which are highly dependent on the gender one belongs to. Let's wake up and accept that women are not disposable glasses or puppets in the hands of demons always ready to control them. When my parents tell me not to stay out of place after it strikes 12, it is a big moment to ponder whether the modern India we get to hear in speeches is spreading like a wildfire, or is it just a manifestation of our so called developed minds disguised in the dust of prejudices. Our eyes never got weary awaiting for change, but we can expect women to cook on fire, yet reckless we are to sense the fire within them. What is the point of talking about equality or liberation in textbooks when our mind lies in orthodox principles. Our heart wants to be the frontier of change but is reluctant due to the fear of losing the tag of following the mainstream. Respect women, not because you have been imparted that knowledge, or because your mother is one. Respect women, for at the end of the day, they are humans. They face inequality which rises from your delusions. You may cut me with your words all you want. The fact remains, I am a woman.

सणाचे परिवर्तन:काळाची गरज
 Sanjay Raghunath Sonawane  
 28 October 2018  

सणाचे परिवर्तन:काळाची गरजलेखक-संजय रघुनाथ सोनवणेभारतात प्रत्येक धर्मात सण साजरे केले जातात. सण जरूर साजरे करावे, त्यातील आनंद लुटावा ;पण ज्या सणामधून पर्यावर्णाची,मालमत्तेची,मानवाची हानी होत असेल, असे सण साजरे करणे म्हणजे चिकित्सक मनाला फसविणे होय. मग करायचे काय?तर त्या सणातील आवश्यक बदल करणे होय. असे अनेक सण आपण वर्षभरात साजरे करतो. त्यातून नुकसान होते. पण आपण गोंडस प्रथेत बदल करायला तयार होत नाही.व त्याचे परिणाम निमुटपणे सहन करतो.तिळ संक्रांत येते त्यावेळी पतंग उडवण्याचा खेळ खेळला जातो. पण ह्या खेळापायी हजारो पक्ष्याचे जीव जातात. अनेक लहान बालकांचे अपघात होतात. स्री पुरुषांचे तीक्ष्ण मांज्याने हात, पाय, मान कापले जातात.यावर कोण विचार करणार?दसर्याच्या दिवशी आपण सोने वाटण्याच्या नावाखाली आपट्याच्या झाडांची पाने, फांदया तोडून त्या झाडालाउजाड करतो. मग का नाही तुम्ही खरे सोने वाटत?रंगपंचमीच्या दिवशी घातक रसायन, गटाराचे पाणी भरून लहान मुले वाहनांवर, मुलांवर फुगे फेकतात.त्यातून कितीतरी मुलांचे कायमचे डोळे जायबंदी होतात.याला कोण जबाबदार?दिवाळीच्या दिवशी स्फोटक फटाके वाजवून कर्ण कर्कश आवाज बाहेर पडतात.ध्वनी प्रदुषण, वायुप्रदूषण, कचरा यांना निमंत्रण देतो. मालमत्तेचे आग लागून नुकसान होते.सणाच्या नावाखाली रस्ते आडवून रहदारी ठप्प करणेवाढ दिवसाच्या नावाखाली बेकायदेशीर गल्लीतील रस्ते बंद करणे या कडे कोण लक्ष देणार?सामान्य माणसाला वेठीस धरून दादागिरी करून हवे तस्या देणग्या वसूल करणे?कोण आवर घालणार यांना?म्हणून समाज व्यवस्थेला दोष देण्यापेक्षा आपण स्वतः बदलले पाहिजेत. आपल्या कुटुंबापासून सुरवात केली पाहिजे. मनातील भीती काढून टाकली पाहिजे. आपण ज्यावेळी निर्णय घेतो त्यावर ठाम असले पाहिजे. तंटामुक्त देश कसा होईल असे प्रयत्न व्हायला पाहिजे.अशी प्रतिमा जगासमोर आपण निर्माण करू शकतो. अशा प्रकारे गाव, तालुका, जिल्हा, राज्य, देश यांच्यात परिवर्तन होऊ शकेल. हे कार्य शाळांतून, कॉलेज मधून प्रबोधन करून शिक्षकानी पार पाडले पाहिजे. कृतियुक्त सहभाग झाला पाहिजे.वरील सर्व सण आपण अनावश्यक रूढ़ी बंद करून साजरे करू शकतो.आपण सुधारलो की आपली पिढी आपले अनुकरण करेल. अन्यथा नको त्या विळख्यातसापडून, कुणाला तरी घाबरून वर्षानुवर्षे तीच प्रथा विनाकारण चालू ठेवतो.
