India’s Justification in hosting the CWG 2010

CWG 2010She gave us birth; She gave us life; she gave us everything we wanted. She is our motherland-INDIA. Our nation hosted the CWG 2010 in October in the national Capital, New Delhi and it was a magnanimous event. India was fully justified in hosting the games as all the citizens came together for a national event. The work had been very stagnant in the beginning and much of the hopes had been shattered but as 3rd October approached nearer, we started being zealous and finally the day came and we gasped the opening ceremony. It was no less than the FIFA opening. Multi lingual people came together and there was a perfect amalgamation of oneness and culture. Guests from overseas came for the event and applauded the same among whom were Prince Charles.
Though red tapism is malignant here; yet the glory and the success cannot be overlooked. we ourselves are witnesses to the games and cannot oversee the hardwork of so many. We are the only nation who can brag about stadium which is one of it’s only kind in the world in the sense that it is totally different from the rest of the stadia of the world. There, every seat would give you just the same view even if you were on the edge of the curve. To add icing on the cake the Indian sportspersons brought laurels to our country by fetching many gold medals.
If we pledge against social vices then nobody can stop us from being a developed nation like US. We are progressing but at a slow pace. We need to speed it up fast. Furthermore, India has been defamed just because of a few miscreants otherwise if each and every individual has faith in her; she would give us quite sweet fruits.
After all, it’s just a matter of BELIEF!
Having high hopes for the future…

A Different Diwali

DIWALI, A festival of lights is celebrated with much joy and fervour across the nation. According to mythology, Lord Rama returned on this day after being in exile for 14 years. At that time, lighting up of diyas marked the triumph of good over evil and family re-unions came to be celebrated.
As time went by, the capacity to spend and need for grandiose among people increased. Diwali is now celebrated with lighting of candles, diyas in homes; exchange of gifts; burning of crackers, among other activities. This is what we now call celebrations. I guess we have simply made this day a holiday and a day for personal delight hardly having any significance.
Go Green & Save the Earth
Generation-Next has tremendous spending power, spending lavishly on SIM cards, i-Phones, movies, the latest technology and what not. It hardly strikes them that there are people dying, who don’t even get a chance to celebrate Diwali. Instead, if they give this money in donations, a huge change will be brought about and their deeds will bring a genuine smile on the faces of children of God.

This might seem as trite on a merry occasion like Diwali but this is the bitter truth. I am not delivering a lecture and asking people not to enjoy themselves, they can and have the right to enjoy but I’m requesting them to think just a wee bit about the world too. That was just about donations.

Moving on to celebrations, being an aware student of the environment, I would like to suggest that people to light the minimum number of diyas and the least number of candles if they can’t prevent themselves from not lighting any. The science behind this is that candles, etc are sources of heat and light and due to combustion; the end products released are CO2 and heat. These further results in trapping of these end products in the atmosphere, which finally results in Global Warming – the hot issue throughout the world now. We ought to do just a little bit from our sides and together we can overcome this demon or ‘Ravana’. We will be the present century’s Rama then.

If candles, etc are used in minimum quantities, a lot (good) will happen. And if you think that the Lord will be happy by these actions of candle ceremony and everything else, then probably you’re mistaken. The Lord will be happy only when you do good deeds. Even if you use crackers, then plant a tree the very next day. This is same as getting wounded and then applying the necessary medication. If this is further taken ahead, then this festival of lights will soon be converted to a Festival of Plantation.

I do hope that at least a few people are inspired by my words.

Gandhi Ji

 

Father of Nation

Great legend-Gandhi Ji

 

A white clad man with a slight stoop being balanced by a stalk wearing Khadi, round spectacles and a very simple dhoti which could barely cover this body was M.K Gandhi. India’s success can only be bequeathed to the Father of the Nation. Gandhian philosophy still holds true in today’s fast-rack world. He followed very simple principles of life which were truth, honesty and simplicity. He did not have any intrigue principles like any great philosopher or leader; he had very simple goals and perspectives of humbleness and honesty. Such ethics as he said might not bear fruits right at that moment but they pay one later. History has revealed that honesty is the best policy though it many not profit you at that time. By speaking truth and following the golden path of honesty, one gets inner peace and contentment though not any pecuniary gain which is very immaterial. Gandhi Ji had very simply living and very high thinking. Only because of his principles, he was able to set India free from the clasp of the British. One man had the power of many. He was and still ensues to be the epitome of a perfect Indian. He focused on self sufficiency so that no Indian would beg at the mercy of the so called superior white men. He was very proud to be an Indian and allowed banishment of untouchability. Because of Gandhi Ji our society experienced revolution. Burning of foreign cloth and rebellion against the British helped India to gain the present situation. Now he’s been dead as many as 62 years. His presence is felt in every part of the country. Physically he might not be present yet he remains in our hearts and continues to inspire each one of us. What we want is his blessings so that the hatred is completely eliminated and our country resides in tranquility. His thoughts about the environment in those days were also very interesting as he said, “Nature has enough for everybody’s need but not for anybody’s greed.” Seeing the harm we have caused to the Earth, we now realize what he said was absolutely true. Apart from social causes and environment, he supported Indian industries. He was against mass production and wanted it to replace it with production by masses to ensure full employment.

If the great legend was alive today; He would have first cried over the present situation of death and destruction;

Secondly be sad to see the youth disrespecting their own language and customs

and Thirdly would have led India to a better path of success.

Many successful and thought provoking movies have been made on the iron willed man, which are again very inspirational.  So, make the departed soul happy and be proud to be Indians and follow his golden rules if you want to succeed.

Beauty of Indian Monsoons

Monsoon-Source of Peace

Monsoon-Source of Peace

Monsoon basically has come from the Arabic word ‘mawsim’ meaning weather and it refers to the gracious bounty of the generator, operator and destructor in the form of merciful rains. Indian is a land of splendor and serenity. The monsoons instill the place with greenness. Monsoon is the only time when air freshens and dormancy comes to an end. It is a time when mother earth gives us the message of togetherness and hopefulness. Not only the trees regain their lives but also human beings learn purity, patience and selflessness from their mother, Planet Earth. The verdant fresh leaves coming out of the branches instill in us elation. The nature is so splendid that it yolks happiness and forbearance in a cloud of rejoice.
Birds chirrup in their euphoria and humans in their own ways. The farmers who are most dependent on the Indian monsoons and more particularly the rains consider the monsoons to be their Christian Soul driving them out of all wretchedness and melancholy. Just like a Christian Soul drives the stranded passengers out of an isolated isle, similarly the monsoons help everyone particularly the agricultural farmers in our country. For them it is their life redeemer. Rains bring respite to everybody. The scorching heat is given a break and the animal and insect life reverts to square one. We get to know what life in reality is. Monsoon is the only time when we see the hibernated elements coming to life. The rains floods our emotions and the next moment we are on cloud nine. It is an absolute pleasure to watch the water gushing from the hills and the crystal clear and diamond pure rains pouring from their heavier counterparts. It is a delight to watch the birds swinging flawlessly and other creatures slithering or running. A sense of satisfaction enables us to work better as well. Life in the monsoon season cannot just be expressed in words. It is our priceless possession and we must thank our beloved mother for that for because of her we are enjoying all the necessities and opulence of life.Beautiful Monsoon
Busy in the hustle-bustle of our lives, we never realize the importance of winsome Earth, which has given us the birth and nurtures us even after death. Unfortunately in the moribund of urban lives we have forgotten about her. She works for us every day and every minute yet we remain thankless and greedily ask for more. Nature is our life and our soul; we should rather thank her in our gratitude.

Save the Tigers

Save the Tigers

Less than 1400 left. This is the number of our country’s pride and our national animal. The tigers are fast dwindling in their number. Tiger is not only a majestic animal but it also is a part of the eco system. The census conducted in 2001 and 2002, put the figure of tigers at 3,642. And now less than 1400 are left. Think for yourself. What if the tigers vanish and become extinct like dodo? Wont it be a shame for us?
Tigers are fast decreasing in number because of poaching and illiteracy. They are poached for their pelts and body parts which are highly prized in places like China and Eastern Asia. Dams and other mining projects have also affected their natural habitat due to which they were unable to adapt to the new niche. Illiterate poor poach the tigers for they are superstitious that tiger eyes are beneficial for their health and can cure incurable ailments. While it is not so, such masses refuse to accept the truth and base their selves on science and logic. Infact, traditional Chinese medicines use tiger bones for it is thought to calm fright, cure ulcers, bites, etc.A tiger skin can fetch up to £5,300 while tiger penises – traditionally believed to have near-magical properties – can fetch £14,000 per kilo. In a world where red tapism is a natural phenomena, it is hard to curb such illegal activities. Tigers are decreasing not only because of killing but also because of encroachment of their natural habitats; their forest area. For example, an adult male tiger needs about 80 to 100 square kilometers forest area.
As citizens, we can spread awareness among larger number of people, roar for tigers, contribute/donate for the same and do whatever is possible from our side. Use your networking sites to join such groups instead of wasting time in futile gossips and gaming. Plant more trees. Inform the government if you see something wrong happening. Instead of criticizing and cribbing, we need to implement our innovative ideas. If we can be innovative enough to bring in new gadgets, then we can definitely use our innovative skills to national and noble causes. Write articles on magazines, newspapers and form small organizations. Also comes with them to be a responsible tourist. Shop carefully and don’t use any product which has tiger teeth, nails, etc (perhaps in international shopping this would help). Now the Save Tigers T-shirts are also available, grab them and let the world know how concerned you are. Saving the tiger means saving mankind.
The government needs to have stringent punishments like death sentence for the law- breakers and need to increase the number of Tiger Reserves. The government shouldn’t wake up when the number tolls down to just a two digit number.

Hazardours Cell Phone Towers

Hazards of Cell Phone Towers

Cell phones came as a boon for us but now we are having troubles with the cell phone towers. While few of them have been installed illegally, the legal ones are also not causing any less tribulation. These towers not only cause health hazards to humans but also to innocent animals and birds. The evident example is the decreasing number of house sparrows, which used to perch with their delicate wings on the bright days. The harmful electro magnetic radiations (EMRs) from the towers affect children and women the most adversely affecting their health. These EMRs cause tumour, skin cancer, DNA disorders, death, etc. Studies reveal more than this data. EMR can cause memory loss, headache, allergies, etc. The rays have a frequency of 1900 Mega Hertz which can easily penetrate human bodies. The standards set by the International Commission of Non-Iodised Radiationare not being followed by the mobile tower operators. They tend to provide services to customers but in turn deplete their health. Instead of help, they are rendering hell.
Shimla has recorded 118 towers out of which only 18 are legal. It’s not that the legal ones are not causing any problem. The guidelines say that such towers need to be installed beyond 500 metres (in radius) from the schools and congested areas. The government needs to wake up soon otherwise there would be serious repercussions on the society both health wise and bio-diversity wise. These towers cause electromagnetic Pollution also. Campaigns to save birds are launched but no one thinks about the other activities carried down. Inhabitants definitely can register a PIL and seek the redressal.

The Sealing of towers in Delhi is also a welcome step.
