With all the modern conveniences and entertainment available, most people would be under the impression, that the life can be action packed. Nonetheless, a lot people feel a void in their lives, leading to disinterest and boredom. Depression and stress is no less in the modern life, than it was in the past. Crimes like killing , rape, cheating and theft continue at the same level. Cravings for material things and get rich quickly or acquire material things immediately. When short cuts do not yield the desired results, the disappointments natural and hence crimes.
The solution, to this is, to eliminate negative forces, and have enough to do. Quite often it is too little to do, which leads to boredom. Another solution is, to simplify your life style, have simple interests and intimate friendships and relationships. Also recall, the happy memories with your family , friends and colleagues. Indulge in outdoor activities like picnic, visiting friends, and play games regularly.
Respect the views, values, feelings and self esteem of others. Every individual is entitled, to be treated, with respect. Whatever may be generally said in favour of arguing forcefully, it is a fact, that an argument, will most likely generate bad blood and sometimes bring about conflicts. It is also true that without arguments you cannot present your case properly Arguments based on facts and reasons and politely done are the proper way to go about one's business.
The arguments to be effective should not be used as a vehicle to release pent up feelings and not used for retaliation. Sometimes a casual remark is enough to put a person in a violent mood. This is particularly, when the same is unjustified.. An avoidable argument can ruin any relationship. Arguments with self opinionated and pompous people are best avoided. Nobody is a winner in any argument. The person loosing the argument is unhappy. The winner, instead of securing a friend, would probably have added an enemy to his list. If you must , then argue in a way that the other person does not feel that he is being coerced to agree with your logic.
Try to be in an uplifting and cheerful mood. Remember that a bad mood is always the result of a negative or depressing thought. The only remedy to reverse is to cancel them by thinking of the thoughts which cheer and uplift your mood. Mood is a very fragile and unpredictable commodity. But you can always change it by pleasing yourself and by appreciating yourself. Muster enough courage and energy to be in a good mood.Try to concentrate on the things which cheer you up.
Maintain high expectations of whatever you want to do or whatever you are doing. It is the high expectations, which are the secrets, to your achievement.
Many a times you would face situations in life which are depressing. At that time, read something which will cheer you up and inspire you.
Respect the views, values, feelings and self esteem of others. Every individual is entitled, to be treated, with respect.

Endowed with all her qualities – Wealth, good children, producer of food, compassion, courage, confidence etc. She is the modern 21st century woman whether she belongs to the underprivileged or privileged section.
The program started with a Pushpanjali by the Alankar level students of Nrityabharati. The item was based on the dancing Ganesha (Anaimughatone) in ragam Galway and Thalami Adi. The innovative Nritta patterns and postures made the item very energetic. This was followed by the lighting of the lamp by the President Guru Smt Kanaka Sudhakar and the Vice President Sh Rakesh Chaudhary.
This was followed by a Pushpanjali by the junior students who peformencd with confidence and beauty.
NRITYA KALPANA was the next attracti0on of the evening. It was performed by students of the 3d and 4th years learning Bharatantyam. This innovative item consisted of Brisk and interesting Nritta passages performed to fusion music of differe4ntiinstruments.Not only did the children perform withperfect coordination andconfidence but also with clarity. This item was specially choreographed for him evening by Guru Kanaka Sudhakar and her daughter disciple Km Aparajita Sarma.
The main attraction for the evening was ASTHLAKSHMI THE WOMAN – with the interesting theme of personifying the Ashtalakshmi in every woman. This was depicted through the dance drama on the Historical story of Lakshmibai –rani of Jhansi.
The music was again very aptly selected fusion music . The drama started with an invocation to Ashtalakshmi . The celestial world where the Ashtalakshmi dwell was shown with beautiful lighting after which each Devi danced to intricate jati patterns . Santana Lakshmi, Adi Lakshmi, Gaja Lakshmi, Dhana Lakshmi, Dhanya Lakshmi, Jaya Lakshmi, Vijayalakshmi.and Dhairyalakshmi. The next scene was showed the birth of Manu a girl from a Brahmin family. This scene witnessed the celebrations of the birth scene in which the Eight Devis come down to bless the child with their virtues. This scene was shown with a colorful dance.
The next scene showed Manu grown up into a little but brave girl playing with her friends. This role was played by Sadhvi Sunderesan . Her bravery was aptly showed when she stops a passig elephant and climbs on its back.
Then Manu was shown to grow up into a 9 year old girl who is talented and beautiful. This role was played by Prerna Kakkar. She was shwn to be playing Dandiya with her friends. After this Tanya Gambhir in the role of a priest entered to tell that Manu was to be married to the King of Jhansi -Gangadhar Rao, The marriage scene was depicted with realismand colorful dances. The palki carrying the bride was very intricately made.
The next scene saw Manu name changed to Lakshmi Bai. The scene showing he learning the martial arts like sword fighting, horse riding and shooting was very innovately choreographed with hints from Chau but mostly Bharatantyam . The music was set to Chanda Jati. . This was followed by the electrified entry of the grown up Lakshmi Bai played by Aparajita Sarma ,and her friends who showed very energetic and vigorous movements in sword fighting and the mock fight. Right from Aparajita as Lakshmi Bai entering the court, her romantic scene with Gangadhar Rao, her affectionate playing with her adopted son Dhamodhar Rao she showed involvement and beauty of presentation.
The coronation scene when Dhamodar Rao is crowned to abide by the Doctrine of Lapse was shown by elaborate dances with lamps and flowers. The entry of the British in their reds and white (shown symbolically by red kurta and white pyjama with white bands) was the climax when Lakshmi Bai challenges them to the fight.
The Big fought between the British and the Indians (choreographed by Aparajita Sarama) was filled with Chau and Bharatantyam movements. The movements used for horse riding was appreciable. The use of real swords made the scene realistic The veena music showIng war tunes was remarkable. The lat scene when Lakshmibai flees from the British to Gwalior with her son on horseback was heart rending. The last moments of her life showed her fighting fiercely with the British , played aptly by Sandhya Hari) . The sound of the gun shot by the General played by Tripti Kalra brought tears to every one’s eyes.
After the dance drams a Kanaka Sudhakar honoured Ramesh Kumari Bharadwaj – social worker and educationist as the Ashtalakshmi 2008. She also honoured a poor woman Nazreen whom she said is also endowed with all the virtues of ASHTALAKSHMI .

Sub : Unhygenic conditions prevailing in Nasirpur Residential Area & callous attitude of the MCD in repairing the approach road to the area.
Dear Sir / Madam
This is further to the various letters written on the subject matter. We regret to note that there has been no improvement in the area in spite of our various representations made time and again to your office this regard.
Unhygenic conditions prevailing in Nasirpur Residential Area
There is a subzi mandi being operational in the area which is creating nuisance to the residents living in the area. Neither the MCD nor DDA is doing anything to remove the mandi from the area which is an health hazard for the residents apart from the nuisance being created by the mandi operators.
The Subzi Mandi in the area has become a serious nuisannce for the residents. The mandi starts at 4.00 am and is functional upto late in the evening. There is no police constable on duty to clear and control the trucks, tractors & cycle carts coming to the mandi apart from the hundreds of cars coming in the area. We have made several representation to remove the mandi from the residential area but nothing concrete has happened uptill now. Since the mandi is functioning unauthorisedly from the area, it does not have the basic facilities for toilets. The operators of the subzi mandi use the open area behind the mandi along the walls of the society buildings to defacate and urinate through out the day and night. The residents of the society flats cannot open their doors in the morning for fresh air. The situation is so alarming that there is a MCD school behind the mandi and the students and parents have to pass through this area to get into the school in mornings and evenings which posses a security threat to many of the children and ladies passing through the area.
In addition the entire place is littered with plastic bags which area choking the trees and inhibiting the growth of plants. Besides these, the leftovers of vegetables and plastic bags are frequently burnt which emanates poisonous fumes. In the last few months loads of tractors comes to the area and dumps industrials wastes and we could see rag pickers coming and collecting items from the dumped industrial material. In other words the area behind mandi and the MCD school has become a dump yard for the industrial wastes etc. and the area is used by the mandi personnel defacating and urinating along the walls of society & MCD school building. What kind of education the Principal & Teachers of the school provide to the children in such an filthy atmosphere is a serious question which needs an answer which the higher ups in the Education Department of Delhi Government and the Inspector of the area needs to answer.
The staff officials from Sanitation Department from MCD do not visit for cleaning the Nallah's and garbage's, as result mosquito's are breeding in the flooded area behind the Mandi. Garbage & huge Malwas are scattered in whole area due to which the students are not able reach their school properly. The concerned sanitation staff of MCD never attends to the complaint for spraying & the official duties properly, even neither health departments staff from MCD never and nor spread Medicine in Nallah's to prevent Dengue / Malaria as result huge garbage's / Huge Malwas scattered in whole residential are and all Nallah's are flooded with garbage's in it. Even horticulture officials posted from MCD Department never attain the duties and resulted the condition of the parks are deteriorated day by day.
When the Delhi Government is spending crores of rupees in building proper infrastructure for the Commonwealth games, open defacating of the area by the mandi operators is the most unbearable part of the whole issue.
All our requests are ignored so much so that in the evening a thick smog hangs over the entire area and makes even breathing impossible at times.
Earlier on our complaint a Special Metropolitan Municpal Magistrate was appointed by the Govt. to look into our problems. However, due to some reasons best known to the Government, the Magistrate was transferred from the area. During the term of the MMM at least some improvements were taking place but after the departure of SMMM from the area it has become extremely difficult. The SMMM had sent a note to the DCP (Traffic) and the area SHO to depute police personnel in the mornings to ensure that the vehicles are removed from the pavements so that people can walk in the area.
Nothing concrete has happened up till now. In the mornings it becomes extremely difficult for the residents to take their vehicles out of the society gates because the on both sides of the roads are blocked by cycle rickshaws,. trucks and tractors and the pavements are also encroached by fruit sellers, radiwallahs selling eatables etc. Apart from the above, most of the time there is a traffic jam due to rush of school buses, vans and also of the vehicles belonging to general public who visit the mandi. We would request the Commissioner of Police to depute some policemen on duty so that the area is kept clean by removing the cycle rickshaws and other vehicles parked on both sides of the road and also the pavement is cleaned so that the public could walk properly.
We would also request the Hon'ble LG & the Chief Minister to kindly visit the area in order to have a first hand information since we have seen that the officials visiting the area present distorted information to the higher ups.
It is needless to add that people of the area have spent their life term savings and borrowed money from FIs and are paying huge amount of interest on their loans to buy their dream home and because of the callous attitude of the officials of the MCD & DDA, the residents have to suffer in spite of timely payment of property and other taxes to the Government.
REPAIRING OF DABRI PALAM ROAD
This is the only road connecting the area comprising of more than 1500 DDA FLATS & 500 Society Flats apart from the residents of Mahavir Enclave and other colonies. It is more than 2 years that this important link connecting Dwarka has been dug and no one is aware when the same will be repaired. One can imagine the plight of the residents living in the area have to face daily for going to their offices. But the complete callousness shown by MCD in repairing this main road linking the area is really disgusting. I would request the authorities to seriously look into the matter and arrange to repair at least one side of the road so that the residents can move properly. The attention of the Hon'ble LG & the Chief Minister is solicited so that the road is repaired at the earliest.
With warm regards

Never seen a sweeper for God knows for how long . V.Krishnamurthy
We happy to note that NOT A SINGLE SWEEPER FOR SECT 22. So all Sect 22 residents may take reimbursement from MCD on sweeping charge from the portion of the MCD Property tax.
Other sectors may also do demand reimbursement if the MCD is not sweeping their areas.
MCD Sweeper in Sector-10, Dwarka? At least I could not spot oneduring my two-year stay in Dwarka. I earnestly believe that this is afit case for the MCD Vigilance Cell to look into. P.J. THOMAS
I have also not seen any sweeper in last 6 years in sec-4 and around. It seems to be big racket . We all must write jointly to vigilance cell forwarding a copy to Mayor,LG and Chief Minister and to our councillors.Sandeep
I think it holds good for all sectors in Dwarka.Only yesterday I spoke to Sahib Singh who is the MCD incharge. I asked him if i have to call him everytime i need the service lane sweeped and garbage cleared. .he say.. he is trying is best to rotate the personnel as there is a huge shortage of employees. He mentioned that by next month or so there will be more employees and there will be no complaints. I wish so..!!!!! He said he will have the service lane cleaned by tomorrow...!! Cant believe how MCD operates..!!!!!! and we want our city clean......! there is absolutely no sweeping done in any of the service lanes...we in our society have asked our jamadar to sweep the lane, which he does on a daily basis...atleast thats why it is a bit clean.regards, Sudha
Sewer lines on 60M / 30M/ 45M wide main Roads of Dwarka have not been cleaned by DDA since long sewer blockage problem will be faced by the Residents. All the roads come under DDA jurisdiction.
We at Pkt-2, Sector-7 are facing problem of blockage of Sewer line outside the boundary wall of the pocket on main Roads near to Vardhman City Mall, Sector-7. We are making follow up with DDA but everybody know the way
I understand RTI is required if there is no allocation of Sweeper in any DDA pocket as well as nearby Sector area. Counciller will only give assurance and nothing will happen.
We need to put pressure on authorities to get the things done. We can also approach
Counceller after doing our home work on our part. thanks anil nayal

Dwarka a beautiful Sub-City is located in the South- West of the Delhi. Dwarka is one of the latest and best colonies of Delhi. Infact Dwarka is the largest colony of Asia. Dwarka is surrounded with the Domestic and the International airports. This sub-city is constituted of Group Housing societies with residents from salaried and middle class category. The current Population of Dwarka is nearly 7 lakhs. The Dwarka is planned with 29 sectors.
In spite of being a sub city and a status symbol, Dwarka has very poor transport facility. The only solace is metro rail and few bus services like Parbhat Bus Services. Or we can see some skeletons of bus service on main road. The sectors are not connected by public transport and the residents have to depend on personal transport which is additional burden due to skyrocketing inflation and rising prices. In fact Dwarka sub city is virtually cut off from the main city. Though an Inter-state-bus terminal (I.S.B.T) has been planned in Sector-22 but it is far from implementation.
For inter sector movement one has to depend upon personal vehicle or rickshaws. Some of the sectors of Dwarka like 22- 23 are so far from the commercial areas and Metro station that the people living in those sectors have to invariably depend on rickshaws to reach who have now have monopoly to charge the rates at their will. It also causes a problem for the students also who have to spend from their pocket money.
Now the rates of rickshaws are increasing very high day by day, which is very hard for the middle class people to pay daily- daily. While in the evening rickshaws use to increase their rates, if someone is coming back to home from metro, they have to pay so much in rickshaws. Nobody is there to checking out there rates. They are charging unnecessary because they know that the people living in sectors 22 & 23 have only this facility available, so that’s why they are charging sooooooo much.
Recently Delhi Metro has started their Metro buses in Dwarka. These are RTVs which are not sufficient to take the heavy load of passengers. But the service in Sector- 9 metro station is almost non existent people of sector-22 &23 have to use costly transport of rickshaws.
I think the welfare associations of Dwarka and the individuals have been bringing this problem to the notice of the authorities to find out the solution so that traveling is made easy in Dwarka. After all, it’s a Sub City of Delhi and has to be taken care of.

Join discussion at Dwarka Forum for a better Dwarka.
Some of the comments/ suggestions by DF members :
It is an established fact that DWARKA has become breeding ground ofCrimes.
I am a resident of Pocket-7, Sector -12 and in the evening it is verydifficult to reach up to my pocket.
Reason : this pocket is last pocket on the way from Ashirwad chowkto Sector -19 and isoloated. For all the drinkers OR the white callerperons who carry girls in the car for amusement, park their cars inthe service lane approaching to the Pocket and do what ever theylike.
Not to ask for the woman or chiledren can walk in that lane after thedusk but a family person like me can not dare to ask them to give sidefor my car to go through that service lane. Every week 1-2 incidnetshappens that I come out of the car and pray them to give me the wayto reach home. Please include my problem also when you refer to the authorities.
Thanking you, Sunil Upadhyay
Sitting in our cosy-cosy rooms we just detach our life from these incidents or accidents because it has caused no harms to our near and dear ones. It is a big mistake. If we are living in the same society you never know who can be the next target of these crimes.More over such incidents will create an atmosphere of distrust in public life. Varsha Sharma
Chain snatching topic you have mentioned but molesting topic should also be highlighted generally people are shy of complaining this sort of matter but these cases are also quite a number in Dwarka done by speeding bikes.
Dy.Commissioner of PoliceSouth West Zone

Sub: Deteriorating Law & Order situation in Dwarka
Incidents of chain snatching have become a routine phenomenon entire Dwarka. Everyday, Dwarka Forum members are reporting such incidents from different parts of Dwarka such as in Sectors 1, 10, 12& 19. Some of the incidents have already been reported to Police but it appears that the snatchers have no fear of authorities at all.
On behalf of Dwarka Forum, we request you to kindly give necessary instructions to concerned officers to take immediate & effective deterrent action. Dwarka citizens would be grateful.
Although my wife & I are in USA vacationing with our children- daughter & family in New Jersey and son & wife in Chicago, I make it a point to go through my mails everyday to keep myself updated. Dwarka , like any other place in Delhi, has become insecure -prone to way- laying , robbery , etc. policing has been lax. There is a need to resident associations to associate with individuals like you to highlight the need to improve security of the sub-city . We need to highlight the prevaling law & order situation at the highest level to authority that matters . We must also get each CGHS management to make a joint petition on the prevailing law & order situation, the police inertia resulting in increase in dacoity, thefts & the insecure environment Dwarka residents are placed with. If the quality of life in Dwarka sub-city has to improve, every CGHS & residents have to raise their voice and extend you - Rejimon ,the support. If we do not act now & force law & order to take action, our security will be in peril. V.Krishnamurthy

We are sorry to inform you that incidents of chain snatching has become a routine incidents in entire Dwarka.On daily basis we are receiving complaints from various parts of Dwarka.Some of them have already been reported to police but it appears that the snatchers have no fear at all.On behalf of the Forum an online group(approx.1300 members) I request you to kindly give necessary instruction to concerned officer to take immediate action on this front to have relief. Thanking you in anticipation.
Today ( 7 Aug.) at about 6.45 two motorbike riders snatched gold chain from a lady who was entering sector one pocket one. They did the act so silently that lady could not know that her chain had been taken away. Then the snatcher showed her the chain and then they fled towards mahavir vihar. call was made to 100. They came they saw and left.
The law and order situation is going from bad to worse. What can we do ? Chander mohan
This is increasing day by day..?.There seems to be gang..!!
The PCR and Motor Cycle Patrolling needs to strengthen along with Traffic Inspectors.
The last press bulletin released of the Delhi police is attached here with from http://delhipolice.nic.in/home/backup/20-06-2008.doc and reproduced below of relevant.
From this is what we understand either these guys were out or some other gangs..
Can some one draft a good email to firstname.lastname@example.org ? we will discuss /share here and send it to CP by Friday evening..
Media is also shared with this info and promised to cover ..let put share and ALERT ALL residents of Dwarka.. Those who got Mobile camera please use and record any suspected moments ...
Such incidents should be reported to the higher police authorities such as ACP and only then the police will come to know about these unfortunate incidents and the bike number etc. Think, so far, no body has sent any mail to any police officer.M K Gupta
I feel with this much information police should be able to track thebike at least if the number has 8542 somewhere its a bike black incolor and perhaps bullet.. Krishna
I think, we need to upraise the media about this repeatedly happening in Dwarka.
So I would suggest :
1. Request, Swati (Dwarka Plus), Ashish (HT West Delhi) , Sinha (Dwarka City) and Sanjay (Dwarka Parichay) to highlight this in the weekend edition with views from all.2. We will write to Commissioner of Police and copy to DCP South West and DCP PCR for proper monitoring along with JCP Traffic for better Traffic Policing in Dwarka. There is major lapse on the part of Traffic Police, Patrolling Staffs and Beat Constables.
3. Any other options ???
ALWAYS USE DIALING 100 number...to inform any incidents,, as this goes on recording.

Chain snatching is becoming quite common again! My wife said, day beforeyesterday morning, one of our neighbors chain was snatched just in frontof our society and 4/5 days back chain was snatched from another lady whowas in a rickshaw. This happened in front my neighboring society i.e. Plot14, Sector 12. M Jayaraman
I am in sector 10. While I was coming back from my office from the Golak Dham side., two slim boys in a motorcycle snatched something from an old lady and immediately fled towards sector 19. While old lady was lying on the ground and I tried to chase them but they vanished in seconds. I tried to look for cops in sector 10 where they keep barricades on the roads but no one was available. Varsha Sharma
I salute you Madam for your courage and willingness to contribute ur best in eradicating the crime from delhi in general and dwarka in particular. In such a situation you could have called on number 100 and the PCR van must have been there within 5 minutes. You should have contacted the girl whom the miscreants has molested. infact the said girl only can now lodge the complaint. It may also be noted that now the complaint would not carry the same vigor as it could have, had it been made immediately after occurrence of the incident.
Regards, Ashok Chaitanya
Dear All Today (6 Aug) while I was cycling I saw a guy coming on a bike which seemed tobe bullet black in colour. I could see only the number which was 8542as he went in a speed after molesting a girl in between Park Royal andSector 9 Pkt 2 lane and fled fast. I could see the number of the bikewhen he fled. Must be chain snatcher also as I do not know if he hadsnatched the chain also. I thought to see if any PCR van was nearbybut I could not find any from Park Royal , neither in front of ITL orSector - 9 as I went the whole of sector - 9 in my bicycle but couldnot find any.Can any action be taken on him and how?How can Delhi be safe?
