Siphoning of government-funds for Non-Government-Organisations (NGOs) by influential ones in political and bureaucratic circles for benefit of NGO’s run in name of their family-members is quite common. These NGOs pay lucrative salaries and perks to its officers who are either relation to power-filled politicians and bureaucrats, or of persons running these NGOs. Systems of NGOs need to be discontinued also because these are tools to divert foreign-funds of individuals. Buildings built on land allotted on concessional rates to NGOs should become government-property because of large-scale funding already done to these NGOs by the government.

However in the meanwhile all NGOs should be under purview of ‘Right-To-Information’ (RTI) Act and also proposed Lokpal Bill.

Sahara One’s Actors Day Out at Radisson Blu – Alibaug!

PremBabu Shrma

Everyone craves for some time to relax and just be themselves, away from their daily chores and the hustle bustle of urban life. Actors too are no exception. Our favorite actors from daily soaps and serials are busy in their rigorous shoots. Tired of being under the high powered lights, with heavy make-up and jewellery and various costume changes, the entire lead cast of Sahara One’s prime-time shows decided to break free and go on a day long excursion out of the city limits. Monsoon never felt never so beautiful as all the actors escaped on a monsoon getaway to Hotel Radisson Blu Spa and Resort at Alibaugh. Here’s a peek at all the fun they had!

Seen loitering around the spacious lawns of the hotel by herself, resting her tired mind and body was Sanjeeda Shiekh, ‘Sejal’ of Piya Ka Ghar Pyaara Lage. Her co-stars Reshmi Ghosh(Urmila) and Giriraj Kabra(Bittu) were enjoying hot coffee and cookies at the coffee shop. While Angana aka Shriya Jha of Jhilmil Sitaaron Ka Aangan Hoga and Aparna Tarakad, who portrays Maa Anjana in Jai Jai Jai Bajrangbali decided to unwind over a game of badminton. At the other side of the sprawling hotel property, Niyati’s Jayshree Soni and Tuzh Sang Preet Lagayee Sajhna’s Nirali were in the swimming pool enjoying water sports. They were joined by none other than Raj Bhanushali, the cute Bal Bajrangbali of the show Jai Jai Jai Bajrangbali. Little Raj kept the ladies entertained with his antics in the pool. At a nearby restaurant was Parakh Madan, ‘Natasha’ of Niyati enjoying some soothing live music by a pianist. After sometime sampling the hotel’s offerings the ladies got together and submitted to being pampered with a full body massage and spa treatment.

If was not only the leading girls of Sahara One’s shows who let their hair down, the men too had their share. Men being men decided to burn some extra calories with a quick session at the gym. Amber (Sachin Shroff), Aakash (Pankaj Tiwari), Deven (Anas Khan) and Bittu (Giriraj Kabra) were seen complaining about how difficult it is to get time off to hit the gym due to hectic shoot schedules. Little Bajrangbali, Raj of Jai Jai Jai Bajrangbali too joined the big boys at the gym and was overheard telling everyone how, as Bajrang Bali, he is the original body builder! Post their rigorous workout the men enjoyed a scrumptious lunch. Later all the men decided to have a go at some sports. Donning track pants and vests, they competed with each other in a game of football. After sweating it out they relaxed by the pool.

The evening concluded with both the female and male protagonists at Razzmatazz where they let their hair down by shaking their legs to the best of Bollywood songs. Aakash and Angana were at their romantic best when they grooved with each other. Giving them tough completion were Amber and Niyati, who later joined in for a romantic dance. However setting the dance floor ablaze was Natasha(Parakh Madan) and Bal Hanuman (Raj Bhanushali). The little master lip-synced all the songs and danced to them too!

ज्योतिष शास्त्र - रिफाइन या ब्लफ़


ज्योतिष- शास्त्र एक प्राचीन और वैज्ञानिक शास्त्र हैं. आरंभ से ही मनुष्य इसके प्रति आकर्षित रहा हैं. कुछ लोगों की धारणा हैं की ग्रह नक्षत्र आदि पृथ्वी से इतने दूर हैं तो पृथ्वीवासियों पर कैसे प्रभाव डाल सकतें हैं ? इसी कारणवश वे ज्योतिषशास्त्र की सत्यता पर प्रश्नचिन्ह लगा देते हैं.

ज्योतिष शास्त्र क्या हैं ?
ज्योतिष शास्त्र का लक्ष्य अंतरग्रही संबंधों की वैज्ञानिक विवेचना कर एक दूसरे पर इसके पड़ने वाले सूक्ष्म और स्थूल प्रभावों और परिणामों से अवगत कराना हैं.
ज्योतिष शस्त्र के अनुसार पूर्ण ब्रह्माण्ड एक चैतन्य शरीर हैं , जिसका प्रत्येक स्पंदन उसके हर घटक को प्रभावित करता हैं.

कॉस्मिक कनेक्शन
वैज्ञानिकों ने यह सिद्ध किया है की, ब्रह्माण्ड के समस्त ग्रह घटक परस्पर चुम्बकीय शक्ति के आधार पर एक दूसरे से जकड़े हुए अपनी नियत कक्षा में परिभ्रमण करतें हैं. पृथ्वी भी एक प्रकार का चुम्बक हैं जिसके दो सिरे उत्तरी ध्रुव और दक्षिणी ध्रुव हैं.

पृथ्वी का चुम्बकीय क्षेत्र कहीं कम ओर कहीं अधिक हैं. भू-चुम्बकीय क्षेत्र का प्रभाव आकाश में कई किलोमीटर तक फैला हुआ हैं.

यह चुम्बकीय क्षेत्र सूर्य तथा अन्य ग्रहों से आने वाली आकाशीय -विकरणों को अपनी ओर खींचता हैं. इस चुम्बकीय क्षेत्र का परिवर्तन पृथ्वी पर प्रत्येक स्थान पर होता हैं कहीं कहीं प्रतिदिन कहीं कहीं लम्बे अंतराल पर. वैज्ञानिकों ने विभिन्न परीक्षण द्वारा यह सिद्ध किया हैं की पृथ्वी के चुम्बकीय क्षेत्र में होने वाले परिवर्तन हृदय और मस्तिष्क के क्रियाकलापों पर काफी प्रभाव डालतें हैं.

बॉडी इलेक्ट्रिसिटी
मानव खुद एक जीवित-चुम्बक हैं. विज्ञान के अनुसार आयनों के सतत प्रवाह से विद्युत बनती हैं. मानव शरीर के करोड़ों कोशिकाओं में व्याप्त कैल्सियम, पोटेशियम, सोडियम के आयन भी सतत प्रवाहित होकर निरंतर जीव-विद्युत का उत्पादन करते रहते हैं.

मानव शरीर के कुछ अवयव जैसे मस्तिष्क , हृदय और आखें प्रमुख जीव- विद्युत उत्पादन केंद्र हैं जिनका मापन electroencephalogram, echocardiogram और electroretinogram द्वारा संभव हैं. इन केन्द्रों में उत्पादित होने वाली विद्युत अनेक नाड़ियों द्वारा शरीर के प्रत्येक हिस्से तक पहुंचाई जाती हैं.

मानवीय रक्त में होने वाले परिवर्तन हमें रोगी या निरोगी बनातें हैं. रक्त में hemoglobin नामक लौह - तत्व सतत गतिशील होकर शरीर को एक चुम्बक बना देता हैं.अतः आकाशीय विद्युत चुम्बक का प्रभाव हमारे रक्त पर भी पड़ता हैं.

इस प्रकार ब्रह्मांडीय-विद्युत- चुम्बकीय तरंगों का असर जगह, समय और व्यक्ति विशेष के उपर अलग- अलग पड़ता हैं. एक व्यक्ति दूसरे व्यक्ति से इन्हीं तरंगों की असमानता के कारन भिन्न-भिन्न होतें हैं.

ज्योतिष शास्त्र - रिफाइन या ब्लफ़
ज्योतिष शास्त्र एक विस्तृत और गूढ़ विज्ञान हैं. जो लोग इसके विपक्ष में दलीलें देतें हैं उनका निशाना अक्सर गलत भविष्यवानियाँ होती हैं जिसके आधार पर वे इसकी वैज्ञानिकता पर सवाल उठातें हैं.

आधुनिक चिकित्सा पद्धति इतनी विकसित और तर्क संगत हैं फिर भी चिकित्सकों का 50- 80 प्रतिशत निदान गलत साबित होतें हैं.

प्रसिद्ध हृदय-रोग विशेषज्ञ Sir James Mackenzie ने कहा की ----जीवन पर्यंत अनुसन्धान और शव -परिक्षण [autopsy ]के बाद यह निष्कर्ष निकला हैं की चिकित्सक ,साधारण रोग में 70 % गलत निदान करतें हैं.

आधुनिक चिकित्सा पद्धिति में मौलिक सिद्धांतों की कमी हैं. ह्रदय रोग, कैंसर, एड्स, दमा, मधुमय का पूर्ण निदान तो दूर साधारण जुकाम का भी कोई सटीक इलाज़ नहीं हैं.

पेट से सम्बंधित अधिकतर रोगों का उपचार permutation and combination पर आधारित होता हैं. लगभग 200 से अधिक व्याधियां हैं जो समझ में नहीं आने पर एलर्जी के रूप में परिभाषित कर दी जाती हैं.

जब उन्नति के कगार पर पहुंची चिकित्सा- विद्या का यह हाल हैं तो ज्योतिष शास्त्र को बदनाम करना बचपना मात्र हैं.

इसके अलवा भौतिक -विज्ञान में thought experiment , hypothesis , corollaries , assumption और infinity इत्यादि का बहुलता से प्रयोग , इस विज्ञान को subjective भी बनातें हैं .

अधिकत्तर लोगों में इस ज्ञान को ब्लफ़ कहने का रिवाज़ चल निकला हैं. परन्तु शायद ही कोई हो जो मन से इस पर विश्वास नहीं करता हैं .इसे झूठी -विद्या कहने वाले भी भी लुके-छिपे विशेषकर अपने ऊपर कोई विपत्ति पड़ने पर ज्योतिषियों के पास जाते और सलाह लेते हैं.

जिस प्रकार बीज़ के अन्दर एक पूर्ण वृक्ष का स्वरुप, प्रकृति, फलों का प्रकार आदि गुण छिपे रहतें हैं उसी प्रकार व्यक्ति की कुंडली में उसका समस्त व्यक्तितित्व एवं संभावनाएं छिपी रहती हैं.

अतः ज्योतिष शास्त्र एक महासागर के समान विशाल, गूढ़, देविक और विज्ञान सम्मत शास्त्र हैं.

P. S. Singh elected Hony. Secretary DBCA DWARKA



Rajendra Dhar

The value of culture and cultural decisions relative to economic policy and stewardship of nature is poorly understood, loosely measured, and chronically undervalued.

In a world of reliable prosperity, society is enhanced within the means and opportunities of nature. A shift in society and cultural views is the starting point for growing and developing diverse bio-regional economies that meet fundamental needs.

Apparent conflicts between society and nature — jobs vs. the environment, loggers vs. spotted owls — result from short-time horizons and the failure to include broader social and ecological costs in decision making. Studies consistently show that states that have invested most heavily in environmental protection offer a higher quality of life. Thriving ecosystems pay important quality of life dividends in clean air, water, and soil; recreational opportunities; a connection to nature; and a decrease in environmentally-induced health impacts including breathing disorders, learning disabilities, and cancers.

"Society" includes education, governance, religious institutions, neighborhood groups and associations, cultural diversity, languages, libraries and other knowledge archives, health-care facilities, community development corporations, legal and police systems, and so forth. Society, like nature, suffers from chronic underinvestment because its stream of benefits, including safety and security, friendship and community, a sense of civic identity, access to knowledge, and many others, is hard to quantify in economic terms.

In a world of reliable prosperity, investments in society are extensive. Green businesses work to provide community benefit. True cost pricing provides incentives for proper accounting of society/culture and its value. Local economies and strategies of local asset ownership ensure that needs are more broadly and fairly met. The community institutions at the core of society are supported.

Although quality of life is partially correlated with income, it is possible for household economies to make decisions that lead to lives of comfortable sufficiency rather than stressful accumulation. Quality of life is highly idiosyncratic, and each household can determine a balance of social, financial, and ecological returns which is most fulfilling. From this perspective, social equity includes universal fulfillment of the most fundamental human needs along with broad access to meaningful work, while respecting the enormous range of life circumstances and personal goals which may drive people to seek different kinds of livelihood.

Invest in the community institutions and green businesses that build social capital. Support ownership strategies that meet needs more broadly and fairly. Seek policies that properly account for social capital. Allow household economies to find a better balance between society and economic capital.


As wealth and political power become increasingly concentrated, it becomes difficult for human-scale democracy to flourish.

Civic society is that component of social life that falls outside the domain of governments and commerce, yet is concerned with building community. In order to flourish, civic society requires informal "third place" meeting spaces (outside both home and work), non-governmental organizations, and independent media.

One significant role of civic society is to maintain a barrier between commerce and government. In the absence of major campaign finance reform, citizens must pay constant attention in order to resist the undue influence of wealth on politics. IMMEDIATE AND DEMOCRATIC PARTICIPATION IN SHAPING THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT, LAND-USE, TAXATION AND SPENDING, LAWS, AND POLICIES IS INTRINSIC TO RELIABLE PROSPERITY. It is vital that this participation be provided through spontaneous channels and not just through formal governmental processes.

Non-profit organizations, associations, trade unions and related community assets play a critical role in hosting and shaping civic society. They provide ongoing ways for citizens to engage in the great conversations about society's meaning and direction. Such dialogue allows fundamental values to be explored and profound new directions to emerge. It forms an important counterpoint to both the formal governance process and the expression of immediate consumer values in the marketplace.

Independent media — including newspapers, radio and television stations, and websites provide additional communication channels for civic society. They disseminate ideas to much broader audiences and permit ongoing critical examination.

Reliable prosperity promotes civic society through its emphasis on local control and accountability and society. Capital that is rooted locally is responsive to local concerns. CITIZENS WITH A SENSE OF SECURITY WHOSE FUNDAMENTAL NEEDS ARE MET ARE MORE LIKELY TO SHAPE CIVIC SOCIETY. In turn, reliable prosperity depends on an ongoing transformation in values that can only result from meaningful public debate.

Promote the gathering places, non-governmental organizations, and independent media that give civic society full expression. HONOUR CIVIC SOCIETY AS A BARRIER BETWEEN AND ALTERNATIVE TO BOTH GOVERNMENT AND COMMERCE.

A tribute to Sad demise of Dr.Laxmi Sehgal-Brig. of Azad Hind Fauz (1914-2012) 

Not too long ago, I found almost the entire nation caught up in a mood of vibrant celebration. Even my eight year old, frequently found glued to either Discovery channel or Cartoon Network, seemed to enjoy watching the movie several times over. Our favourite Bollywood product` Lagaan` was carefully prepared and lovingly polished, to win the Oscars. The common citizens patriotic aspirations were elevated to the highest degree of nationalism for months. The keenly anticipated contest at the Oscars held out high hopes of a feather in the cap for India, the fierce competition and the strong contenders notwithstanding.

The results however disappointed millions of Indian hearts, belying their hopes of an Oscar win. The tendrils of hope were given a hasty burial. In the current climate I would rather say that this was a hidden missile that torpedoed the carefully constructed structure of hopes and pride. This incident was a ruthless reminder to a novice writer like myself, to be extremely careful while applying the theory of relativity in unfolding and mindlessly comparing two great works of cinema, science, art and personalities. The conceptual gears were shifted from nationalism to the bigger domain of patriotism with universal brotherhood.

Hidden missiles and their accidental discovery is not an unusal phenomenon. The story unfolds interestingly in the joyful children’s` world.

With the arrival of Holi, a rainbow of desires was evoked, and translated into action. A brigade of children led by a few enthusiastic adults of the building, took up positions on the balcony of my top floor apartment. Perfectly positioned as they were, the missile like targeting with water balloons, of all the ground- floor occupants of our apartment building, was the source of great pride for the missile launchers.

However after a short while the 'home' team was shocked to find missile balloons bombarding them from above. The ground floor residents had decided to beat us at our own game, and had discovered the advantage of quietly climbing to the roof top.

The battle of watery missile exchanges went on for an hour or so, and looked set to become a game of one upmanship that was fast getting serious. Till some of the wise people of the society intervened and pacified the rivals, convincing them to dump their false pride, artifical height and superficial positions!

In the end everyone assembled happily in the park to deck up each other with the joyful (chemical free) colors of Holi. The day ended with lots of fun, dance, partying and some good natured ribbing. All in all the colourful impressions of Holi left behind a sweet taste of what life can be when we subdue our need to control one another and decide to co- exist in the modest and humble domain of peace. 

A tribute to Sad demise of Dr.Laxmi Sehgal-Brig. of Azad Hind Fauz (1914-2012)


The presidential race has brought on the national canvas new and fresh profiles, viz. those of Abdul Kalam and Capt (Dr.) Laxmi Sehgal. They replace other personalities that have been on the map for the children in our colony, like Kiran Bedi and our old and ailing Prime Minister.

During a discussion with the children on the most favourite national personality, a group of eight children with an average age of ten years shocked the adults present by electing Dr Laxmi Sahgal instead of the relatively well-known celebrity Abdul Kalam.

In order to re-check the consensus reached and the reasons therein, I got friendly with the children residing in the different apartments near my residence. The three older children in the group taught me about their choice through the analogy of the kitchen knife in the hands of a technology promoter (who they called a technology expert), a soldier, a surgeon, a housewife and a thief. The 'nuclear arms' association, was the simple reason for the children`s consensus, in contrast to the adult world of argument and counter argument. Oh to live in a world of black and white!

Two younger children, acknowledged having failed to correctly identify Shri Kalam on TV, as a male with locks of long parted hair.The third child recollected her school principal, demanding they sing in chorus and insisting to repeat (repeat what?). Almost the entire group of children were aware of the boy Kalam! selling newspapers and saving money for studies.They immediately unlocked the stored experiences of their own newspaper boy, corn-wala bhaiya and Choto who delivers milk in our society.

Surprisingly only two children out of eight were acquainted with the unique story of the little child Laxmi sacrificing her dolls and clothes. One child, spellbound with Laxmi`s story, correlated it with the scene from the movie where a ten or eleven year old Bhaghat Singh burns his foreign clothes in protest against foreign rule, under Bapu's Civil Disobedience movement. The successful implementation of non-violence during the famous eighty one days hunger strike led by Sardar Bhagat Singh and other communist freedom fighters to protest against the inhuman and biased environment of the British jails had also left a long lasting impression on their young minds.

Near the fag-end of the meeting, I was bombarded with queries such as,"Why did the boy Kalam not participate in the freedom movement"? and "Why did thirty crore Indians fail for years to defeat only one
lakh British rulers?"

At that moment, I had to break off to attend an important meeting. Later however, I was informed by two parents acting as observers of the children group about the need articulated by the children to carefully keep alive the memory of the good works and united struggle of freedom fighters including Ashfaqullah Khan, Bhaghat Singh, Chandershekhar Azad, Subhash Chandra Bose,Capt (Dr) Laxmi Sahgal and Mahatma Gandhi.

Next evening was taken up by the parents, who reviewed the national values of the freedom fighters. Bhaghat Singh in the late 1920s had rightly identified both imperalism and communalism equally dangerous to the growth of a free nation. Subhash Chandra Bose, under whom Dr (Capt) Laxmi Sahgal served in the INA, saw freedom as a state where all Indians are to be treated as equals with no privileges to a person on the basis of caste, class and religion.

A difference of opinion got heated when Mr Sharma blamed the `two nation theory` of Jinnah and Congress role in 1947- partition. Two persons including me strongly objected to this old unchallenged classical version.According to us it was the BJP and their ancesters who actually kept the communal cauldron of `the two nation theory boiling` and they had no role in the freedom struggle of our country.After three years of the original `invention` by the BJP-RSS hero VD Savarkar, finally the `xerox` of this two nation theory was used by muslim league and Jinnah to complete the unfortunate hate cycle. Fortunately this version got reconfirmed and was reluctantly accepted by all after a careful analysis of Khuswant Singh`s  recent article in a leading newspaper. Finally everyone accepted that the joint efforts of communal forces led to the unfortunate partition of the country as desired by the Britishers.

Next week, few parents of children studying in the high school were concerned about the recent placement of an English grammer question in the Gujarat board examination- quoted, "If you don't like people kill them (romove 'if ' from this sentence)"-The times of India april 24th 2002 ,front page "exam board defends Nazi question". The battle line this time was clearly visible with the ongoing media debate. The discussion was whether to guide a child to polish his own skills while experiencing grammer and history ? or shall we leave the child exposed to the evil designs of our government and RSS who are commited to follow the footsteps of Adolf Hitler and his experiments?The stay-in-alive childrens`world was silently igniting the elder minds.

Looking back into the artificial adult world,I find that war,missiles and a false feeling of pride promoted by the rulers has always cheated the citizens.Worst victims had been women and children who could seldom
smile.Can a military code called `Buddha Smiles` for nuclear tests hide the reality for long?A visit to the Hiroshima museum however may disqualify any chance to smile.Is it not a fact that nuclear tests by few countries and the painful cancer deaths due to sustained harmful radiations follow a parallel pattern near the nuclear test sites? War as some argue is indeed an unwilling product of civilisation- which may end up the inequality while opening the hidden door of economic prosperity. What people need to know is how many cruel battles can settle the `end` to war.Is it not possible to prioritise the neglected equality?

Post nuclear test argument of the ruling elite is loud and clear that strength respects strength and not weakness. Since nuclear weapons cannot beautify and strengthen the old conventional war they need to be delinked and seen seperately.Interestingly,Shri Kalam had argued in the past that he would like to provide nuclear missiles to every country to level the global strength and also once developed the weapons should be deployed and should not be kept for a show. Today there are no buyers of Kalam missile outside India and there are even lesser voices who may openly glorify this false`ornamental science`.Each country is aware of this sixty years old nuclear technology which refuses to be loyal even to its own master,the earth,the air,the water and the nature itself.If missiles continue to steal the sky then where will the sun rise?Where will the children enjoy while learning? To save childhood we need to boldly say no to war.A recent anti-war banner in delhi reads,"There is no way to peace,peace is the only way."

Later one evening,I found two of those eight children playing hindu-muslim warriors aiming pistols as missiles safeguarding Indo-Pak borders.Before it is too late,the childrens`world needs to be protected from the strange pied piper like creations of the rulers.The young minds motivated by Kamal Hassan's `Hindustani` always need a real model leader against their impressions controlled by jingoistic enviornment.Our ongoing feudal romance with brand leaders is truely reflected in childrens`world.Later,I learned from a friend that his child tells everyone the story of his school play "Jhansi ki Rani" staged last year at the Kamani auditorium. At times, you may find children enjoying and reciting an old memorable poem which reads in hindi: "Khoob ladi mardaani , yoh to Jhansi wali rani thi."

लोगों को जागरूक करने में गैर सरकारी संस्थाओं (एन.जी.ओ.) की भूमिका अहम् है

रानी सिंह 

आज दिनांक 28.07.2012 को एक दिवसीय कार्यक्रम का आयोजन किया गया। इस कार्यक्रम में गैर सरकारी संस्थाएं वर्तमान में सामाजिक जीवन की विभिन्न क्षेत्रों में कल्याणकारी कार्यों में अपना महत्वपूर्ण योगदान दे रही है।

आधुनिकता से जहाँ एक ओर आर्थिक समृद्धि बढी है वहीं सामाजिक जटिलताओं में भी बढोतरी हुई हैं। लोगों को जागरूक करने में इन गैर सरकारी संस्थाओं की भूमिका अहम्  है। उक्त विचार भारतीय सामाजिक संस्थान के सौजन्य व श्री ज्ञान गंगोत्री विकास संस्था के द्वारा आयोजित एकदिवसीय प्रशिक्षण कार्यक्रम में पधारे राजीव झा जी ने कहे। 

प्रशिक्षण एवं कार्यशाला में पश्चिमी दिल्ली के अन्तर्गत रोहिणी, पंजाबी बाग, जनकपुरी, उत्तम नगर, द्वारका, कीर्ति नगर, राजौरी गार्डन और पटेल नगर आदि क्षेत्रों से गैर सरकारी संस्थाओं (एन.जी.ओ.) के लगभग 60 प्रतिभागियों ने इसमें में भाग लिया।

राजीव झा जी ने कार्यशाला में आये लोगों को आगे कहा कि बदलते समय के दौर में सामाजिक संस्थाओं का भी धीरे-धीरे निजीकरण होने लगा और कल्याणकारी योजनाए भी सरकारी क्षेत्र से दूर होती जा रही है। ऐसी स्थिति में जो सामाजिक कल्याणकारी कार्य थे उन कार्यों से जनता और सरकार के बीच हाई बढती गई और सामाजिक समस्याओं का निपटारा समय पर नहीं होने लगा।

राजीव झा जी ने आगे कहा कि जहाँ एक ओर गैर सरकारी संस्थाएं समस्याओं का समाधान कर रही है वहीं दूसरी ओर फायदे का दुकान भी बन रही है। जिसका प्रमाण यह है कि बहुत सारी गैर सरकारी संस्थाएं फर्जी कामों में पकडी गई और उनका पंजीकरण रद्द भी किया गया। उन्होंने सुझाव दिया कि इन संस्थाओं को अधिक से अधिक फन्ड मुहैया कराया जाए और समय-समय पर निरिक्षण और परीक्षण भी किया जाए ताकि इन पर सरकारी अंकुश लगा रहे।

कार्यशाला को संबोधित करते हुए निर्मल माता जी ने महिलाओं को जागरूक करने पर जोर दिया और समाज में बदलाव आ सकता है। उन्होंने कहा कि महिलाओं के क्षेत्र में काम करने वाली गैर सरकारी संस्थाओं को प्रोत्साहन के लिए सरकार समय-समय पर समानित करें ताकि उनके बीच कल्याणकारी कार्यों के लिए प्रोत्साहन मिल सके। उन्होंने जार देकर कहा कि ये गैर सरकारी संस्थाएं दलित, पिछडे, आदिवासी क्षेत्रों में काम करें।

भारतीय सामाजिक संस्थान, दलित प्रभाग के कार्यक्रम संयोजक श्री कमलकान्त प्रसाद ने गैर सरकारी संस्थाओं को किन-किन मुद्दों पर काम करना चाहिए तथा उनके लिए सरकार के द्वारा कौन-कौन सी नितियाँ है और उन्हें कैसे लागू किया जाए। उन्होंने झुग्गी-झोपडी व मलिन बस्तियों में रहने वाले मजदूरों की सामाजिक व आर्थिक स्थिति का अवलोकन करने के लिए गैर सरकारी संस्थाओं की भूमिका को अह्म बताया। उन्होंने कहा कि एन.जी.ओ. जैसी संस्थाओं का दायित्व है कि सामाजिक जिम्मेदारियों को पूरा करने के लिए सरकार और जनता के बीच सामंजस्य स्थापित करें। उन्होंने विशेष घटक योजना कार्यक्रम एवं दलित कैडर और सामाजिक कार्यकर्ता विषय पर विस्तृत रूप से कार्यशाला में आए प्रतिभागियों को जानकारी दी।

संस्था के महासचिव भाई बी.के.सिंह ने कहा कि गैर सरकारी संस्थाओं का दायित्व है कि वह समाज के उस तबके के लिए काम करें जो समाज में सबसे उपेक्षित है। साथ ही उन्होंने कार्यशाला में आए तमाम प्रतिभागियो से यह अपील की वे अपने अपने क्षेत्र में शिक्षा, विकंलागता, बेरोजगारी, मानवाधिकार, स्वास्थ्य, निरक्षरता, कन्या भ्रूण हत्या जैसे विषयों को लेकर अपने अपने क्षेत्र में कार्यशाला करें।
संस्था की उपाध्यक्ष रानी सिंह ने प्रशिक्षण एवं कार्यशाला में आए तमाम प्रतिभागियों को संस्था के विषय में बताया तथा गैर सरकारी संस्थाओं की वर्तमान समय में क्या उपयोगिता है जानकारी दी। कार्यशाला एवं प्रशिक्षण के दौरान प्रतिभागियों ने वक्ताओं से प्रश्न पूछे और उनके प्रश्नों का समाधान भी किया। इस कार्यशाला में विजय कुमार, मनमीत कुमार, मूरत कुमार, मुस्कान आदि ने भी अपने विचार रखें।

Benefits of a Hug !

R.D. Bhardwaj "Noorpuri" 
There's something in a simple hug
As it always warms the heart,
It welcomes us back home,
And makes it easier to part ways.......

A hug is a way to share the joys
And sad times we go through,
Or just a way for friends to say
They like you 'because you're so close.........

Hugs are meant for anyone
For whom we really care,
From your grandma to your neighbour,
To a friend, past or present,
Or sometimes, even a cuddly teddy bear.

A hug is really an amazing thing,
It is just the perfect way,
To show the love we're feeling,
But can't find the words to say.

It's funny how a little hug
Makes everyone feel good;
In every place and language,
It is always understood.

And hugs don't need special equipments,
Special cells, batteries or parts -
Just open up your arms ......
And open up your hearts as well.

And the other person shall also,
Reciprocate his sentiments ,
With equally warmth and respect,
Because, love often begets love ........

And our feelings and waves find
their ways into the hearts and minds,
of our loved ones thru his or her eyes,
and warmth of spread out arms .......

Vegetarian Diet And Soya Products Help Reduce BP

Dr KK Aggarwal
Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee
President, Heart Care Foundation of India

  Ingestion of a vegetarian diet may reduce systolic blood pressure by 5 mmHg. A 5 mm reduction in blood pressure may reduce the risk of heart disease by 21%.

One major feature of a vegetarian diet that may affect blood pressure is the amount of dietary fiber, with an increased amount being associated with decreased systemic pressures. Several studies have shown benefits with dietary fiber intake on blood pressure.

Vegetarians, in general, have lower blood pressure levels and a lower incidence of hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases. Experts postulate that a typical vegetarian’s diet contains more potassium, complex carbohydrates, polyunsaturated fat, fiber, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C and vitamin A, all of which may have a favorable influence on blood pressure.

More significant reductions were observed in older (greater than 40 years) and hypertensive individuals. Soy is good for high blood pressure because it is naturally high in potassium and low in sodium. Potassium and sodium are electrolytes, and a high-potassium, low-sodium diet promotes a healthy blood pressure.

Soy can be good for high blood pressure when you eat it as an alternative protein source to unhealthy meats. Soy-based meat substitutes, such as veggie burgers, veggie bacon and meatless cold cuts, can be higher in fiber and lower in sodium than animal-based meat products. They can lower your risk for heart disease because they are lower in saturated fat. However, soy does not contain the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids that are found in fatty fish and shellfish; these may lower your blood pressure, according to the Linus Pauling Institute.

Even though soy is low in unhealthy saturated fat, some soy products are high in total fat and calories, and as a result will contribute to weight gain if you eat too much. Losing weight if you are overweight, or maintaining your current weight if you are already at a healthy weight, improves your chances of lowering your high blood pressure.

Maya Digital Studios converts ‘SONS OF RAM – Heroes will rise’ in 3D

Prembabu sharma

Maya Digital studios, the company that pioneered the art & technology of animation & visual effects in India in the 1990s, is also a leading 2D to stereoscopic 3D conversion studio today.

Maya’s next 2D to 3D conversion project is the path breaking animation film, ‘SONS OF RAM – Heroes will rise’. Produced by the legendary Amar Chitra Katha ‘SONS OF RAM’ will be India’s first ever animated film to be converted from 2D to stereoscopic 3D. Previously, iconic Hollywood films like The Lion King & Beauty and the Beast have been converted from 2D to 3D, and this a first for India. Speaking on the occasion; Ketan Mehta, Chairman & Managing Director – Maya Digital Studios said, “3D is the future of entertainment and we at Maya are extremely thrilled to bring India’s first animated 2D to 3D converted film SONS OF RAM, for the Indian audiences. It is a spectacular film with world-class 3D effects and comes from the house of the legendary Amar Chitra Katha. We are confident that the audiences will enjoy the film.”

Maya has recently completed the entire 2D to 3D conversion work on one of Indian cinema’s greatest films of all time, Sholay. 2D to 3D conversion of content is one of the key trends in the entertainment business today, and Maya being a futuristic company has already setup its production pipeline for the same.

2D to 3D conversion provides an entirely new experience of viewing the content. Maya is the only Indian studio to have worked on the 2D to 3D conversion of a live action as well as animation film. Speaking about the challenges in conversion, Hemant Shinde – Head of the conversion department at Maya said, “We’ve just finished the conversion work on Indian cinema’s greatest film, Sholay. Our next film SONS OF RAM is a visual treat for the kids this Diwali.” While Sholay came with its own technical & creative challenges for conversion, Maya successfully delivered the same within the stipulated timelines. The conversion of SONS OF RAM brought in newer challenges. “The biggest challenge was to eliminate the eye strain entirely since this film is aimed primarily at kids and family audiences”, says Ram Dhumne – Head of the conversion department at Maya.

Based on ACK’s bestselling comic book, SONS OF RAM tells Luv and Kush’s journey through enchanted forests into the revered land of Ayodhya, the home of their fabled heroes. Complete with a brand new gang of loveable characters, this feature is the epic coming-of-age adventure as never seen before.

The much-anticipated film promises to delight the entire family with a score of four original musical songs and international animation. It will release in Hindi and English in over 400 screens Pan-India on the first day of the Diwali school holidays, 2nd November 2012. Select theaters will screen the film in breathtaking stereoscopic 3D. It will also be released in Tamil and Telugu.

This is not just the first Indian animated film to be converted from 2D to 3D, but will also have the widest release for an Indian animation film with 400 screens across India. The film will make history as one of the biggest marketing efforts in Indian animation across television, outdoor, print and school contact programs. ACK Media has teamed up with its parent company - Future Group, to release a full assortment of merchandise from toys, stationary, apparel, and home products for the film to be sold in the Group’s flagship chain Big Bazaar. The deal includes prime promotional support during the busy festive shopping season and special offers for consumers to receive discounted tickets on the film.

Speaking about the wide distribution plan, Devdatta Potnis, Head – Marketing & Distribution – Maya Digital Studios said, “At Maya we believe in the power of content and it is our endeavour to provide the best possible platforms for the Indian animated content. Previously too we had a wide release for Ramayana – The Epic and even with SONS OF RAM we are going deep because we are very confident that the content will be liked by kids and family audiences alike.”

SONS OF RAM will be a Diwali treat for kids in 3D and will hit theatres on 2nd November 2012 and its exclusive 3D teaser will hit the screens with the release of Ice Age 4: Continental Drift and viewers can also enjoy it in 3D with the Indian animated film, Krishna Aur Kans.

Miss Dwarka 2012

DBCA DWARKA election will be on 27th July

P. S. Singh for Hony. Secretary 
Chamber no 645, Dwarka Court
Mobile No: 9810282890; 8802028884

Esteemed Member of DCBA,

Appositely describing the relationship shared between the Bench and the Bar in achieving the Constitutional objective of the administration of justice, Hon’ble Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer (Retd.) observed: ‘The Bench without the Bar is as bankrupt in the delivery of justice as the Bar without an intelligent, impartial independent Bench to hear and decide.’ An equally important facet, albeit sadly overlooked, is the relationship which such members of the Bar share inter se. It was in the said circumstances that a strong need for forming an association of the members of the Bar was first felt. It was hoped that forming an association would make the Bar a formidable institution in itself which could take proper care of the needs and welfare of its members and that of the Court premises wherein they practice. The same was expected of the Dwarka Court Bar Association as well when it was formed. However, I feel, and you would concur, that much still remains to be done for the Dwarka Court Complex and the members of the said Bar Association despite its existence for the past many years.

Presently, hoards of problems like the lack of basic amenities and infrastructure abound in our Court complex. Be it the lack of cleanliness in toilets, insufficient arrangement for surveillance and security within the Court and chamber premises, dearth of sufficient reference books in the library, etc., the situation, indeed, is very grim. The challenges faced by us, which impede the realisation of the vision which we hold dearly for the Dwarka Court Complex, are many. Mainly, it is the lack of proper infrastructure and that of able leadership. Some objectives, unidentified until now, which needs to be achieved on a priority basis are:-

* Ensuring complete cleanliness and hygiene within the Dwarka Court Complex.
* Enhancing the pecuniary jurisdiction of the District Courts.
*Creating more avenues of work by making an endeavour to bring tribunals and quasi judicial bodies like the Consumer Forums, Debt Recovery Tribunal, etc., to operate from the Dwarka Court premises.
* Ensuring the division of Delhi into 9 Sessions divisions in furtherance of the Order of the Hon’ble Delhi High Court in W.P. (C) No. 3408 of 2012.
*Organising seminars and conferences on topics of legal importance on a regular basis.
* Setting up a fully functional medical dispensary with the availability of a gynaecologist and other specialists on designated days of the week.
* Setting up a Railway reservation counter.
* Representing before the DTC for easy access of buses from/to the Dwarka Court Complex.
* Creating sufficient parking facility within the Court premises with the availability of parking attendants.
* Supplementing the existing library with new reference books, reports, journals etc.
* Making the Dwarka Court Complex a completely Wi-Fi zone and also enhancing the capacity of the present E- Library by installing more computer terminals and softwares.
* Setting up a ‘Young Advocate Training Programme’ wherein members with less than 5 years of experience are imparted with the basic nuances of legal practice and professional ethics by leading and experienced members of the bar.

Having been actively involved with the Dwarka Court since its inception, I deem it as only my obligation towards the said Court and you, the esteemed member of the Dwarka Court Bar Association, to take up on myself the solemn duty to achieve the objectives cited herein above. It is with the said realisation that I am contesting the oncoming elections of the Dwarka Court Bar Association for the post of its ‘Hony. Sercretary’ and hereby earnestly seek your valuable support for the same.

P. S. Singh, Advocate


District Court Dwarka, Sector-10
Voice for Dwarka Court

In the year 2006 we approached Delhi High Court and succeeded in the allotment of additional plot 6172 sq. mtrs. For additional lawyer chambers for future. The cost of the plot is Rs. 3,22,970,25 has been deposited recently by the govt. to D.D.A.

Recently PIL was filed for creation of 9 separate sessions divisions in Delhi and the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi directed the Govt. of Delhi directed the Govt of NCT of Delhi to create 9 session divisions before 31st August,2012 by giving notification.

After creation of 9 session divisions many police station which are presently within the jurisdiction of Saket Court complex and Tis Hazari Court complex will be shifted to Dwarka Court.

Presently, the pecuniary jurisdiction of District court in Civil cases is only up to Rs. 20 lakh which should be enhanced to a reasonable limit may be 5 crores. Even the cost of one room in Delhi is more than 20 lakh so all the cases pertaining to property matters fall under the jurisdiction of High Court. As a result High Court is heavily burdened the disposable rate of property matters are very poor.

We will give a representation to the High Court to enhance pecuniary jurisdiction of District Court so that cases may be decided fastly. An RTI reply states that only

3,115 cases are pending in Dwarka court cases upto 31st March, 2012 while the number of advocates are 6,000.

After the bifurcation of the district courts Govt. has created sufficient infrastructure for the judiciary for lower court. Dwarka Court complex having deserted look after 12 O’clock because no. of cases are very less compare to no. of advocates at the same time Govt. is paying a rent for DRT & DRAT which are running from the Pvt accommodation as well as many tribunals commissions and forums are scattered through out Delhi in my view all these tribunals commissions and forum should be shifted in the respective court complexes for the convenience of litigants and advocates.

There is no welfare scheme for the young lawyers. The Govt. should seriously think to provide, health and medical insurance for the young members of bar and also stipend for supporting the newly entrants in this profession for establishing their practice.

Dwarka Bar Court Association’s election will be held on 27th July between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Election will be held for eleven posts as follows: President, Vice President, Hony. Secretary, Addl. Secretary, Treasurer, Member Library, Lady Member Executive, 4 Member Executives etc.

More than sixty candidates are contesting this time.

कोई कुछ भी बोले मुझे फर्क नहीं पडताः नेहा

प्रेमबाबू शर्मा

क्रूक और क्या सुपर कूल हैं हम जैसी सलीके की फिल्में कर चुकी नेहा शर्मा ने अपने करियर की शुरूआत तेलुगू फिल्मों से की और अब दुर्गेश सिंह एकता कपूर की फिल्म क्या सुपर कूल हैं में नजर आयेगी। फिल्म इसी सप्ताह रीलिज हो जा रही है अपनी फिल्म के बारे में उनका क्या कहना है जानते है उनकी ही जुबानीः

क्या सुपर फूल हैं हम में आपका किरदार क्या है? निजी जीवन में आप खुद को इस किरदार के कितना करीब पाती हैं?
मैं सिमरन नाम की एक शहरी लडकी के किरदार में हूँ जो अपनी खुशियों को पाने में यकीन रखती हैं। उसको किसी के जीवन में अडंगा डालने का कोई भी शौक नहीं है और न ही वह अपने ऊपर किसी तरह का बंधन चाहती है। सिमरन का किरदार वास्तविक जीवन में भी मेरी उम्र का ही है तो इसे निभाने में मुझे कोई दिक्कत नहीं हुई। मुंबई आने के बाद मैं कुछ इसी तरह का इंडिपेंडेंट जीवन जी रही हूँ, लेकिन मैं अपनी पसर्नल लाइफ में बिलकुल ऐसी नहीं हूँ।

आप एक न्यूकमर हैं जबकि तुषार और रितेश मँझे हुए कॉमेडी अभिनेता हैं? मुश्किल हुई ट्यूनिंग में?
रितेश देशमुख का होमवर्क देखकर मैं दंग हूँ। वो सेट पर काफी मजाकिया हैं। वे सीन को पढने के साथ ही इम्प्रोवाइज करते रहते हैं। कई बार तो जब सचिन सेट पर उनको संवाद पढकर सुनाते थे तो पसंद न आने पर वे खुद सचिन को बताते थे कि यहाँ ऐसा होना चाहिए। मैंने रितेश देशमुख से किरदार का ऑब्जर्वेशन सीखा है। वहीं तुषार को देखकर लगता ही नहीं कि इतने बडे घराने से ताल्लुक रखते हैं। वे बेहद विनम्र स्वभाव के हैं।

आपकी पहली फिल्म क्रूक से क्या सुपर कूल हैं हम तक इंडस्ट्री का रवैया कितना बदला है आपके प्रति?
यह तो आप लोग ही बताते हैं कि कौन-सा अभिनेता डिमांड में है और कौन-सा नहीं। मुझे तो कोई बदलाव नहीं दिखा। मैंने अपने स्वभाव के बारे में पहले भी आपको बताया कि मुझे बहुत फर्क नहीं पडता कौन मेरे बारे में क्या बोल रहा है? यहाँ आपको दो फिल्म करने के बाद ही सेलिब्रिटी करार कर दिया जाता है जबकि हम भी इंसान ही होते हैं। मैं अपने काम में फोकस करने में सफल रही हूँ। इस जमाने में आपका काम ही आपको मजबूत और कॉन्फिडेंट बनाता है, बाकी सब अफवाहें हैं।

निर्देशक सचिन यार्डी के साथ सेट पर आपका अनुभव कैसा रहा?सचिन के साथ यह मेरी पहली फिल्म है। उनको मैंने पूरी शूटिंग के दौरान कभी भी सेट पर हाइपर होते नहीं देखा। उनको किसी अभिनेता से जो चाहिए वो खुद आकर अभिनेता को समझाते हैं। कॉमेडी का मेरा यह पहला अनुभव है तो उन्होंने स्क्रिप्ट और शूटिंग की सारी पेंचीदगी खुद समझाई। इस फिल्म में मैं पूरी तरह निर्देशक की एक्टर हूँ। सारा जेन डियाज के साथ मेरे जो साझे सीन थे उसमें भी उन्होंने बहुत धैर्य रखते हुए हमें सारी बातें बताई। अक्सर ऐसा होता है कि नए लोगों को सेट पर असिस्टेंट डायरेक्टर ही समझाते हैं लेकिन इस फिल्म में ऐसा नहीं हुआ।

किस तरह के किरदार आपके दिल के करीब हैं?
मैं हर तरह के किरदार करना चाहती हूँ। एक अच्छी स्क्रिप्ट और मिले तो मैं सशक्त महिला का किरदार भी निभा सकती हूँ और कॉलेज गर्ल का भी। लेकिन मेरी कुछ सीमाएँ हैं जो मुझे मेरी फैमिली बैकग्राउंड की वजह से विरासत में मिली हैं। मैं बिहार के एक परंपरागत परिवार से हूँ। माँ-पापा के अलावा मेरी दो बहनें और एक भाई भी है तो मुझे अपना काम करते हुए यह ख्याल भी रखना है कि उन्हें मेरी वजह से कहीं शर्मिंदा न होने पडे। मेरे परिवार ने यहाँ तक पहुँचने में मेरा सपोर्ट किया तो मेरी जिम्मेदारी बनती है कि सफल होने के बाद भी मैं उनकी उतनी ही इज्जत करूँ जितनी अभी करती हूँ। इंडस्ट्री में अभिनेत्रियों का करियर स्पैन बहुत कम होता है, ऐसे में आपका परिवार ही आपके सपोर्ट सिस्टम होता है।

13th anniversary of Kargil Day on Thursday, 26th July 2012

Toady is the 13th anniversary of the Indian Armed Forces having successfully evicted the enemy from Kargil -- from the heights of strategically located high-points above the Srinagar-Leh highway.

Every year, we request all citizens of India to remember those 527 brave young men who laid down their lives during this conflict, so that you and I could live in peace.

May I please request you all to light a candle at 8 PM, on 26th July, at your doorstep and place a flower next to it.

How To Answer and Call On Mobiles

Dr KK Aggarwal
Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee
President, Heart Care Foundation of India

1. Say Hello and not “yes” when calling or answering calls. Its hard and rude.
2. Always put the phone gently if you need to put the telephone down during the conversation. Also hang up gently. Never slam the phone. The person at the other end may still be on the phone and sudden bang can be hurtful as well as rude.
3. Make sure the number is correct so as not to risk disturbing strangers.
4. Make your call with busy people as brief as possible.
5. When calling people who do not recognize your voice, introduce yourself.

6. Time your calls. Do not interfere with the work schedule of others
7. Make business calls well before the close of the office hours.
8. After dialing a wrong number, apologize.
9. When the number you are calling is not answered quickly, wait long enough for someone to put aside what he or she is doing. It is very annoying to have been disturbed just to pick up the telephone and find the caller has hung up.
10. Never take a personal mobile call during a business meeting.
11. Never talk in public places
12. Don’t talk emotional in public.
13. Don’t use loud and annoying ring tones
14. Never make calls while shopping, banking or waiting in line.

18.Never call people at odd hours. If you sleep at 2am does not means other also follow the same
19. When calling on mobile always ask if the other person is free to talk.
20. Learn to text when not in emergency.

Sukh Dukh Ke Sathee Sanstha carried out its third tree plantation program of this year on 21st July 2012 in the Park behind Classic Apartments in Sector-22, Dwarka in the series of its extensive “Go Green” campaign. It is amazing that the Sanstha has taken it up as its tradition to start this program every year with glorious celebration of “World Environment Day” falling in the month of June, which is ideal for such a drive in view of approaching monsoon season. The tree plantation program of the Sanstha is carried out till end of August with continued aftercare to ensure survival of the planted trees and shrubs.

On this occasion fifty ‘Panda’ trees were planted by the Sanstha members in association with some nearby residents and distinguished guests, with the support of the staff of Horticulture Department of the DDA.

Existing trees in the park were also given support, where ever required for proper growth. Problem of ‘Deemak’ (termite) harming the existing grown up trees was discussed at length and it was decided to treat them with pest control chemicals in the coming week.
