SNATCHERS ARE ON PROWL AT METRO STATIONS AT NIGHT

MK Gupta,
Member, Security Committee, Dwarka Forum

When you are at some isolated Metro stations at Dwarka at night, be over cautious about your purse, chain and other belongings, as they may be snatched. After snatching, you may be heading for another trouble in attempting to lodge an FIR for the loss, forget about its recovery for a moment, as the recovery rate is minimum in such cases.

On 25th March, 2010 the purse of Mrs. Madhu Gupta was snatched which contained US$ 3800 and important documents when she was returning to her house from Sector 10 Metro Station, Dwarka. According to the complaint, duly acknowledged at the Police Station, a copy of which is with the author, the total loss is about rupees three lakh plus important documents like credit cards, cheque book and so on but the police station has not written an FIR on one pretest or the other. In the absence of an FIR, she has to satisfy herself by delivering complaint on the next day i.e. on 26th March. Mr Gupta told on 27th, that when he and Mrs. Gupta again requested the police for registering the FIR, the cop asked her to give the serial numbers of dollars and upon failure to do so, he did not register the FIR.

Mrs. Gupta was returning with her son Karan Gupta at about 10.45 p.m., on 25th March when a bike hit her from behind and consequently, she fell down on the ground. Her son helped her to stand and when she stood, she immediately realized that her purse has been snatched and told this to her son who tried to catch the biker by taking lift from some body else but he could not catch the two-bikers on one bike as they ran away taking advantage of darkness. He or her mother failed to note the number of the bike due to darkness and due to shock of sudden ambush. Karan is working in Illinois, USA, and came to Delhi on 20th March and drawn the money from his bank to pay the installment of his education loan.

The lost items include US$ 3800, Swiss Frank 600/-, Rs. 9,000/-, Credit Cards of HDFC, HSBC, City Bank, ICICI Bank, PAN Card, Driving Licence, Cheque Books, key of locker, Id. Card of Punjab National Bank, Insurance documents. On all the documents, address of her previous residence at Ashok Vihar, Delhi has been given as she has shifted from there to Dwarka recently few days ago. She is working in Punjab National Bank, New Delhi and resides at Sector 10, Dwarka, New Delhi.

Dead buffalo rotting near Mahabhadrakali Society Plot 6, Sector 13, Dwarka

There has been a dead buffalo rotting near Mahabhadrakali Society Plot 6 Sector 13. This happens to be right opposite the MRV school.

It is so smelly that we can not even breathe properly. The foul smell is now entering our houses.... and definitely the MRV school children are also breathing the same stinky air.... Even all the people from Sector 3 also who cross our road to reach Sector 13 metro station must also be facing this problem.

I tried to contact the Najafgarh office to remove the carcass as it's polluting the environment. Nothing happened.....

My wife who is a member of the Managing Committee, called up Mr. Rajesh Gehlot today and asked him to help us in getting this clean at 9:45 AM this morning. He said he would call up the Najafgarh office to get the dead animal removed immediately but NOTHING HAPPENED.....

AS we all know it's emanating foul smell but also a lot of germs are spreading in the air. Which is so bad for all the people who live in the nearby societies and the MRV school children.

This is our beautiful Sub city where we can't even get fresh air to breathe...... This place has been a dumping ground for so long. When I complain they come and clean it but I never expected that the authorities are ready to risk the health of all the residents in the nearby societies of Plot 6 Sector 13.... This time someone left their dead animal and know one even could stop this?

We are living with this and I don't know when the concerned authorities will wake up maybe after some of us fall sick.

Trying to breathe...... somehow

AWARENESS SERIES - EXERCISE EXTRA CAUTION WHEN YOU DEAL IN PROPERTY


M K Gupta

If you are going to deal in property especially in Dwarka, please exercise extra caution in selecting an honest dealer and before making any advance, check the reputation of dealer and financer (if any). This advice is on the basis of the experience gained by a purchaser named Sumit. (Name changed on request). Few dealers and Financers in Dwarka are tarnishing the image of the whole community dealing in property.

Sumit selected a flat for purchase in Sector 6 through a property dealer operating from Agarwal Plaza, Sector 12, Dwarka. The two-brother running the officer introduced him with Financer having ISO 9001-2000 certificate and running his officer from Palam Extension, Sector 7 in Dwarka. Now, it has become difficult to deal in property without a financer in Dwarka. Though this financer claimed that he is recognized for fair deals but at the time of paying the token amount in the last week of June 09. He issued the receipt for the same but neither the dealer nor this financer told the buyer that the flat is mortgaged to a private Bank at Karol Bagh. Rather contradictory to this fact, it was dishonestly mentioned on the receipt that the flat is free from any mortgage etc. After few days, he informed that the formal Financer for this flat is someone else who has entered with an agreement with the owner and he has his office in Sector 10 market. This newly introduced financer has not only shown stars to the purchaser but Venus also during the broad daylight. After taking the further amount to over 10 per cent of the deal, he informed the buyer that the flat is mortgaged to a bank as owner has taken a loan on this and therefore the purchaser will have to pay more within the next 10-15 days for clearing this loan. Fallen in to the net in good faith, purchaser had to pay close to 40 per cent of the total cost by Sept. 09 under compulsion to save the advance paid. Surprisingly and dishonestly, this newly inducted financer singed an agreement earlier that declared that the flat is free from any sort of mortgage. The purchaser felt duped but could not do anything, however, now exercising some extra care, he had given an advt. in the paper inviting objections from the public for this deal.

Though these two so-called financers had taken considerable amount from the buyer, they cleared the loan taken by the owner from the Bank by the end of Dec. 09. After that, the NOC and original papers of the flat released by the Bank were taken from the owner by the newly introduced financer. Because of the delay in the execution of papers on flimsy grounds, purchaser had changed the dealer in August-September by engaging a reputed one having his officer at Sector 11 market. After facing all the aforesaid harassment, when it was informed to these dealer and financers that the purchaser is contemplating police and legal action and informed of this deceiving act to some other brokers also, apart from threatening to give the story to the Dwarka Forum and the media, they were compelled to get the sale deed executed on 19th January this year.

Not only this, these dealers and financers tried to overawe the purchaser after the release of papers from the bank by trying to increase the negotiated price on the pretest that the rates in seven months have gone up but due to resolute attitude of the purchaser, they failed in their attempt. Had this not happened, the matter might have still lingered on. Due to the dishonest act and delay in execution of papers, the purchaser has to pay the interest on the money borrowed for advance payment and hefty rent for the flat wherein he was residing at the time of entering the deal. See the courage of the ousted dealer that after the execution of the papers, the ousted dealer asked for his brokerage, which the purchased had paid to the newly engaged broker who was instrumental in the completion of this deal.

The owner of the flat has also rued as he was kept on tenterhook for seven months altogether.

The Financers promised that the flat shall be ready to move and the work for this was going-on at the time of entering the deal but shortly after the advance was paid, they stopped the ongoing work. The purchaser has to undertake the completion of the left out work on his cost and incurred about one lakh from his pocket.

These Financers also misrepresented the fact that the house tax is paid up to date but the receipt has been mislaid. Also, that they have paid Rs. 25,000 as entry fee to the Management of Society for which no receipt had been issued but by now alerted purchaser cross-checked these facts and found them erroneous and thus saved the amount not due from going to the pockets of deceitful financers. Now, it has come to notice that the original broker having his officer at sector 12 has downed his shutters.

It is learnt that these financers have also used same tactics to harass another buyer who bought a flat in Apna Villa, Sector 10 about two-year back. After getting the advance from this buyer too, these financers were not forthcoming for the execution of sale-deed. When a relative of the buyer who was a senior officer in the Home Ministry, intervened in the matter, these financers were forced the complete the deal.

DWARKA IN TEARS ! ?

Vijay K. Saluja
As if the traffic & transportation woes of Dwarkaites were already not sufficient-what with crawling traffic at the two main exits for the city ie flyover -road towards cantonment area/ domestic airport & underpass near sector 22, more have been added to their cup of woes? This has come about after the launch of experimental [as it has been termed by the concerned authorities] traffic pattern at the recently constructed flyover at Rao Tula Ram [RTR] on Outer Ring Road.

This has not only led to tortuous massive traffic snarls on one of the very main artery of Delhi which caters to traffic from Dwarka etc, domestic & international airports but from NH-8,too. As per my personal experience, yesterday ie around 11AM on 21st March, it took more than 35 minutes to traverse a distance of just about one kilometer ie from the grade separator on NH 8 near domestic airport to RR hospital. Beyond RR hospital to IIT Delhi, it took another forty minutes-a stretch of about three kilometers!!

Believe me, hundred of cars & other vehicles were stuck like my car & all the occupants were loudly ruing their fate & the governance system of our so called going to be `world class city!?? Smaller vehicle drivers & pedestrians were at a loss what to do. Some scooterists were on the footpaths!!

How much physical, financial, psychological & social stress, it has caused to thousands of hapless commuters, in just one day, will be worth examination?

The media has reported about this management-debacle & all sorts of debates, discussions, blame- throwing matches have already started.

But, my submission is-
Is it planning?
Is it governance?
Is it good management of our capital of India which is readying itself for one of the prestigious international sporting event, which is only a few months away?
What sort of caring govt it is?
What should the hapless residents of this city, do, in these circumstances?
What should have been done by the authorities?
What needs to be done?

Why Delhi can not be a city like Singapore-perhaps that comparison may not be right as Delhi to my mind, is, a few decades behind, that city, because of many reasons population et al.

But, we can have our own caring & efficient `Sadi Dilli Model`-which our dynamic CM is aspiring for?
How to fill the yawning gaps between the reality & minimum expectations?
These are some of the many questions, which I pose to the readers.
Some of the answers to the same, I will give in the next part of my article., with some more queries, too.

हरित शौचालय: नये युग का प्रतिमान

22 मार्च को विश्व जल दिवस (वर्ल्ड वाटर डे) पूरी दुनिया में मनाया जाता है। 22 दिसम्बर 1992 को संयुक्त राष्ट्र की आम सभा में रेजुल्युशेन पास किया गया था और 1993 में एजेन्डा 21 लागू किया गया था। और 1993 में ही 22 मार्च को पहली बार विश्व जल दिवस के रूप में मनाया गया था। लगातार तब से आज तक हर साल 22 मार्च को विश्व जल दिवस के रूप में मनाया जा रहा है। साफ और ताजे पानी के महत्व पर केन्द्रित इस दिन का संदेश पानी सदा के लिए सुरक्षित बनाए रखने का है। विश्व जल दिवस हमें पानी बचाने के नए सोच-खोज का भी एक अवसर उपलब्ध कराता है। गांवों में स्वच्छता को ध्यान में रखते हुए खुले में शौच बंद करने को लेकर सरकार अभियान छेड़े हुए है। टोटल सेनिटेशन कैम्पेन का सपना हर घर में हो टायलेट का है, ताकि गांव के गली-कूचों को साफ रखा जा सके। ऐसे में किस्म-किस्म के आधुनिक शौचालय, फ़्लश वाले शौचालय लगने का दर बढ़ गयी है, साथ ही साथ पानी की जरूरत बढ़ गयी है। पर ये सब पानी के लिए एक दुःस्वप्न साबित न हों। इसलिए हमें इसका रास्ता तलाशना होगा कि शौचालय से पैदा हुए हर एक चीज को काम लाया जा सके। आज के जमाने में मानव अपशिष्ट (शौच) को उपयोगी संसाधन में बदलना ही नये युग का प्रतिमान गढ़ना है।

आजकल सामान्य तौर पर उपयोग किये जाने वाले आधुनिक शौचालय (फ़्लश वाले शौचालय) का आविष्कार हुए सम्भवतः सौ वर्ष हो चुके हैं, हालांकि इस बात पर मतभेद हो सकते हैं, क्योंकि यह पता नहीं है कि फ़्लश शौचालय का आविष्कार असल में किसने और कब किया होगा। बहरहाल, करोड़ों लोगों के लिये जिन्हें रोजमर्रा के जीवन में यह फ़्लश शौचालय की सुविधा आसानी से हासिल है, और करोड़ों ऐसे भी लोग, जिन्हें यह आधुनिक सुविधा हासिल नहीं है, उन सभी के लिये एक मिनट रुककर सोचने का अवसर है कि लाखों टन प्रतिदिन उत्पन्न होने वाले “मानवजनित अपशिष्ट” के भविष्य के बारे में चिंता की जाए। क्या फ़्लश शौचालय उपयुक्त हैं? खासकर उस स्थिति में जबकि हमें यह पता हो कि थोड़े से अपशिष्ट को भी ठिकाने लगाने और हमारी आँखों और दिमाग से दूर हटाने के लिये बड़ी मात्रा में पानी लगाना पड़ता है।

इसका उत्तर अलग-अलग हो सकता है। सच तो यही है कि भले ही फ़्लश शौचालयों ने हमें एक अद्वितीय सुविधा प्रदान की है, लेकिन पिछली शताब्दी में ये शौचालय, पर्यावरण स्वच्छता और आर्थिक बोझ के रूप में एक बुरा सपना ही साबित हुए हैं। इस मानव अपशिष्ट को उपचार संयंत्रों तक ले जाने वाली, पानीदार विशालकाय संरचनायें एक तरफ़ जहाँ निर्माण में बर्बादी की कगार तक महंगी हैं वहीं दूसरी ओर उनका रखरखाव भी बहुत खर्चीला है। ऐसा अनुमान लगाया गया है कि अमेरिका और यूरोप के पुराने सीवेज पाइप लाइनों को अगर दुरुस्त करना हो अथवा बदलना हो तो तत्काल लाखों करोड़ों की आवश्यकता होगी। कोई नहीं जानता कि इतना पैसा कहाँ से और कैसे आयेगा?

इससे भी बदतर स्थिति यह है कि प्रायः बिजली कमी के कारण और अचानक आये हुए तूफ़ानों और बाढ़ के समय के चलते भी सीवेज़ ट्रीटमेंट प्लांट (मलजल उपचार संयंत्र) पानी की अधिकता के कारण काम करना बन्द कर देते हैं, उस स्थिति में मलजल को बिना उपचार के नदियों अथवा समुद्र में ऐसे ही छोड़ने के अलावा कोई और रास्ता शेष नहीं होता। इस बारे में भारत में मौजूद व्यवस्था के बारे में कहना बेकार ही है। बिना उपचारित किया हुए मलजल का प्रदूषण, ज़मीन और भूमिगत जल पर कितना गहरा असर डालता है? न सिर्फ़ यह मलजल हमारे कुँओं, बावड़ियों, नहरों और नदियों के पानी को नाइट्रेट और पैथोजन्स से प्रदूषित करता है, वरन जब यह समुद्र में पहुँचता है तब समुद्री जल-जीवन और मूंगा की चट्टानों को घातक रूप से प्रभावित करता है। सब जानते हैं कि दिल्ली के नज़दीक से बहने वाली पवित्र यमुना नदी को हमने कैसे एक “राष्ट्रीय नाला” बनाकर रख दिया है। विडम्बना यह है कि जिसे हम “अपशिष्ट” या बेकार समझकर दूर-दूर नदियों और समुद्रों में छोड़ देते हैं, बहा आते हैं, वैज्ञानिक शोधों द्वारा अब यह साबित हो चुका है कि असल में वह अपशिष्ट मिट्टी और ज़मीन के स्वास्थ्य और खाद्य सुरक्षा के लिये उपयोगी मित्र साबित हो सकता है।

चाहे तरल हो या ठोस रूप में, मानव अपशिष्ट के द्वारा एक उत्तम किस्म का उर्वरक बनाया जा सकता है, इसी प्रकार मानव मूत्र जिसे वैज्ञानिक सभ्य भाषा में अर्थात “एंथ्रोपोजेनिक लिक्विड वेस्ट” (एएलडब्लू) कहा जाता है, वह भी अपने एंटीबैक्टीरियल गुणों के लिये जाना जाता है। बजाय इसके कि इस बेहतरीन उर्वरक का उपयोग मानव प्रजाति की खाद्य सुरक्षा में किया जाये, हमने करोड़ों डालर कृत्रिम उर्वरक बनाने के कारखानों में लगा दिये हैं, ऐसे उर्वरक जो प्रकृति ने पहले से ही मानव शरीर द्वारा निर्मित करके दिये हैं।

ज़ाहिर है कि हमें इस समस्या को नये सिरे से देखने की आवश्यकता है, क्या अब हम पुराने “चेम्बर पॉट” सिस्टम पर लौट सकते हैं? क्या शहरी जनता की “सुविधा” को तकलीफ़ में न बदलते हुए भी इस दिशा में कुछ किया जा सकता है? आर्थिक योजनाकारों, नीतिनियंताओं और यहाँ तक कि बड़े-बड़े पर्यावरणविदों के लिये भी जनता को इस बारे में समझाना मुश्किल है, खासकर शहरी जनता को, कि अब वे लोग फ़्लश टायलेट का उपयोग बन्द करके पुराने तरीके पर लौटें।

सो अब जबकि राष्ट्र एक नई शताब्दी में प्रवेश कर चुका है, सुरक्षित रूप से कचरा निपटान नहीं करने के कारण, सार्वजनिक स्वास्थ्य की समस्याओं पर पकड़ बनाने और स्वच्छता अभियान के विभिन्न लक्ष्यों को प्राप्त करने के लिये हमें आर्थिक रूप से सक्षम और पर्यावरण की दृष्टि से स्थाई व्यवस्था का निर्माण करना होगा। सच का सामना करना ही होगा कि दुनिया की लगभग ढाई अरब से भी अधिक उस आबादी के लिये, जिसे उचित सेनिटेशन और पानी मुहैया नहीं है, हमें भी एक पहल करनी होगा, हमें समझना होगा कि इस समस्या को हल्के से नहीं लेना चाहिये।

विकल्प मौजूद हैं, बस उन पर काम करने की आवश्यकता है। “प्राकृतिक स्वच्छता” एक प्रकार का विशिष्ट प्रतिमान है जो अपशिष्ट को एक संसाधन में बदल सकता है। अधिक विस्तार में न जाते हुए सिर्फ़ यह जानें कि “ईको-सैन” पद्धति में पानी के उपयोग के बिना ही अपशिष्ट को उसके मूल स्रोत पर ही ठोस और तरल रूप में अलग-अलग कर दिया जाता है, और फ़िर उस अपशिष्ट को उपयोग करने लायक खाद में बदला जाता है।

ग्रामीण क्षेत्रों में इस “ईको-सैन” कार्ययोजना को लागू करने और उसे लोकप्रिय करने में हमारी संस्था “अर्घ्यम” में हम इस दिशा में काम कर रहे हैं। इसी के साथ हम विभिन्न कृषि विश्वविद्यालयों को इस सिलसिले में शोध और ट्रेनिंग देने के लिए भी कह रहे हैं। हमारा लक्ष्य सामान्य तौर पर ऐसे छोटे किसान हैं जिनके पास पारम्परिक शौचालय नहीं हैं और उन्हें महंगे उर्वरक खरीदने में भी कठिनाई होती है। केले की खेती पर एएलडब्लू के उत्तम उपयोग के प्रभाव को देखने के लिये आपको खुद ही देखना होगा तभी आप इस पर विश्वास करेंगे। एक किसान को आसानी से एक बार में ही इस “ईको-सैन” तकनीक के बारे में समझाया जा सकता है जो उसके उर्वरकों पर खर्च के हजारों रुपये तो बचायेगा ही साथ ही उसकी मिट्टी के उपजाऊपन को भी बरकरार रखेगा।

यदि यह इतना ही आसान और प्रभावशाली हल है तो फ़िर क्यों नहीं यह तेजी से पूरे देश में लागू किया जा सकता, बल्कि समूचे विश्व में भी? लेकिन इस राह में कई चुनौतियाँ हैं, जैसे जागरूकता, अच्छी डिजाइन, सरकार की नीतियाँ, आर्थिक और अन्य प्रोत्साहनों के साथ-साथ भारत जैसे देश में संस्कृति और जात-पात से भी जूझना पड़ेगा। “ईको-सैन” छोटे ग्रामीण इलाकों में स्वच्छता प्रबन्धन का समाधान प्रस्तुत करने में सक्षम है। हालांकि इनमें से कोई भी पूर्ण नहीं है, लेकिन हमें नई “ग्रीन अर्थव्यवस्था” बनाने हेतु वीरों की आवश्यकता है। ऐसे लोग जो लगातार और आशावादी तरीके से आज के मार्केट आधारित सिस्टम पर खरे उतर सकें, लोगों को समझा सकें कि हमें लम्बे समय तक टिकाऊ स्वच्छता पाने के लिये क्या-क्या करना चाहिये। “इन्द्रधनुषी सपनों का पीछा करने वालों को निश्चित रूप से अन्त में सोना हाथ लगता है।” (इंडिया वाटर पोर्टल)

DDA FLATS – FINANCERS CORNER BIG CHUNK OF FLATS

M K GUPTA

Since the start of DDA Housing Scheme in 2008, the scheme has been mired in different controversies. In a startling revealition, Navbharat Times has mentioned that original allottees of general category are selling the flats to the dealers and financers on heavy premiums and the financers are depositing one time payment in the DDA though the amount can be paid in installment also. They are selling these flats in the open market after converting them freehold to free-hold.

In a joint investigation carried out by the Navbharat Times and a detective agency of Mr. Sanjeev Deswal as its Managing Director, investigators came to know that in Vasant Kunj, out of 795 flats allotted, possession of 60 flats had been handed over to the original allottees. Out of these 60 flats, property dealers are running their offices in a dozen of flats. The newspaper further state that after the flats are converted to free hold, the possession is being given to dealers instead of original allottees.

During an sting operation, one property dealer told that the DDA’s allotted LIG, MIG and HIG flats in 11 Lakh, 23 Lakh and 36 Lakh respectively but these are being sold in 30 to 52 Lakh, 55 to 62 and 70 to 80 lakh now which is more than double the price charged by the DDA. The Financers and Dealers assure the potential buyers for not worrying about DDA’s officials. Sleuths have recorded the discussion between them and the dealer posing as a potential buyer. Flats in Sector 23 and 28, Rohini are also being sold in this manner. The question is why the DDA does not restrict the sell of flats allotted by it for some years?

Jugalbandi: A Fusion of Art and Poetry

The father daughter duo of Mr. Ram Varma and Ms. Vandana Sehgal presents Doublet art work

Exhibition cum Book launch:

Before He was God, Ramayana, Reconsidered, recreated.

Date: 24.03.10, Time: 4.30



Venue: The Lalit, (near Bengali Market)

A combination of Architectural and spiritual musings going to melt into incorporeal art at a solo exhibition cum book launch being presented by Ms. Vandana Sehgal along with her father, Mr. Ram Varma, at The Lalit on the occasion of Ram Navmi, on 24th march, 2010.

Ramayana, the Hindu epic, after all, makes for sumptuous food for imagination. It is replete with colorful and fascinating gods, goddesses and characters, whose visual representations are equally imaginative and spiritually uplifting. Colorful portraits of RAMA, hanuman, adorn the walls and puja rooms of almost every Hindu household in India but here it also abets Mr. Ram Varma’s book - Before He was God, Ramayana, Reconsidered, recreated. Both of them have rendered this composition in a synchronized manner. The uncanny tryst of colors and brushes of Vandana and the recital blank verses of Mr. Ram give a perfect blend of ethereal art.

Aspired to make painting a passion, Vandana is an architect by profession and if we talk about her father then he is a retired IAS officer and was English lecturer in Jodhpur University. Ram Varma was drawn to the fount of English poetry right from his school day, but he entered the charmed world of Vedas, Valmiki, Vyasa, Kalidasa and Bhasa after his retirement.

Ram Varma’s rendering “Before He was God, Ramayana, and Reconsidered, recreated” is refreshingly different from the Valmiki’s Ramayana where ram is a historical figure like Krishna or Buddha. . His re-creation takes support on the bedrock of the latest textual, sociological and archeological research. In his own words, “the story recited by the well meaning pundits of Puranic times was an senseless exaggeration. It was vital to restore the attention of the viewers or the readers, but this beautiful story did not need any artificial support. Its beauty remains undiminished even in a realistic portraiture of events. Ram Varma captures those vignettes and there is an aroma in his rendering which gives the pleasant smell of an odor of Vedic times.”

The theme of Vandana’s paintings is Ramayana and she captures her inspirations in monologues, a collection of 65 paintings which will be on display at The LaLiT on 24 March. There is an effort to be true to the narrative of the author. Commenting on taking up Ramayana as a theme Vanadana said that, “Ramayana is such a theme that one is absorbed into it with a force that is difficult to comprehend and when I had gone through my fathers book who believes that apart from meeting Vasishtha, Vishwamitra and Gautama earlier, Rama met other great diviners like Bharadwaja during his sojourn in Dandakaranya, I got inspired and thought of depicting this story on my canvas. He lived in their ashramas, saw them perform yajna and heard them recite the hymns. It has been a spiritual journey- these 65 paintings which took up six months are also a parallel journey with Ram.”

A self taught artist, applied her god gifted art and created oil cum acrylic paintings with the contemporary spiritual and traditional theme. Earlier also she had presented a solo exhibition “Between Spaces” in Lucknow. They were the spaces that her mind conceived - some were real and some surreal.

And this time the main uniqueness of this exhibition cum book launch is that it’s a unique a venture father and a daughter and more than that it’s a collaboration of a writer and an artist who tied up and miniatures of all 65 paintings have been nestled along with the “Before He was God, Ramayana”. Both father’s and daughter’s creation abets the Indian heritage and culture.

FORTHCOMING SUMMER - WATER PROBLEM AT DWARKA

M.K. Gupta

If we are hoping that there will not be any water problem at Dwarka this summer as it will start getting water from Munak Canal, our hope is not going to be fulfilled at least by June this year. Dwarka is scheduled to get 50 MGD water from this canal. Haryana government is not going to complete the canal before June and Delhi Jal Board is not sure about the fulfilment of this new deadline and therefore is not certain about the availablity of water this summer from the canal. However, its Water Treatment Plant at Dwarka is ready for water from the canal.

Only top leadership at the Centre can save the day by prevailing upon the Haryana for the early completion of the canal, the deadline for its completion has been extended many times in the past by the Haryana government.

Holi celebrations and Children Park at Green Tower CGHS

Management of the society is taking special care for the children. It teaches them to keep the premises clean and beautiful. Now-a-days even the small children do not pluck flowers or spoil the plants. Instead of blaming the children or their parents MC involved the children in planting and taking care of flowers. Now even they stop the elders from plucking the flowers. The Society has conducted a competition among children “How to keep Green Towers clean and beautiful’ MC gave prizes to the winners for first and second in the Park.
As a token of encouragement to the children MC awarded them by providing four beautiful rides namely – Sea-Saw, Marry-go-round, Swing and Monkey Ladder. MC has developed a badminton court inside the society.

In the societies the facilities required for the children are generally ignored. The elders keep on complaining that children are damaging the society plants, property etc. By creating a badminton court and providing these rides, children can play, enjoy without getting the blame. No doubt this brings in togetherness among the residents of the society.


Mr. Langer, President of the society feels that these type of facilities if provided gives a common place for the children to play and inculcate in them friendship, adjustment, peaceful coexistence and a sense of cleanliness and beauty. In the nucleolus families it is essential to create these habits to prepare them to adjust with the wider world.

Mrs. Kodiyan, Chief Convener of the Neighborhood Ladies Organisation, Dwarka and Mrs. Sethi inaugurated the Children Park and expressed that in every society there should be a Children Park for the mental and physical development of the children. They advised the children to ensure proper cleanliness of the rides and save the flower all around the rides.

Holi was enthusiastically celebrated by the Residents of the society. Fountain was converted into bath tub where children had a gala time in the coloured water. Children made sure that elders did not miss their childhood by drenching them with colored water.

Tambola added to the fun and excitement. Contributory lunch organized by Mrs. Kodian and group was a welcome relief to the ladies.

Nature of the Ancient Indian Mind

By  Vijay Kharekhare.vijay@gmail.com

Influenced by nature the early Indian mind, though not much educated and well trained, was a linear and single mind, glimpses of which are reflected in his simple geometric forms and shapes. He was so feared, insecure and dependent on nature that all his blissful expressions were dedicated to it. Religion, scriptures and traditions were the only knowledge forms that ignited his mind. His joyous expressions were as simple as the joy itself. Usage of triangles, circles, flower like shapes, mental imitation of god or virtuous forms were the main units of his expressions. The mind which was more disciplined and routined because of their prosperous daily choir preferred geometric shapes.

In the root of all spiritual expressions is some kind of fear. Fear of nature powers, fear of slipping occupation and regular income, fear of family well being, all this is summarized in their art forms as submitted to virtuous gods.

Ancient Indian mind was very well trained for their routine activities agrarian in nature. Being hard working left them with lots of leisure using it for their own products. But no doubt their preference of forms being geometrical shows advancement of mind though not professionally trained. Their color choices were region and weather dependent and on the availability of chemicals and raw materials which were exceptionally natural.

Depiction of god forms:

Influence of scriptures the only arranged knowledge available that time and ancestrally passed on myth stories filled their minds with pride and a kind of 'moral education' with which they were proudly associated. It has their pride and joyous associations which were reflected in majority of their expressions. If we say ancient Indian art is nothing but the simplicity and the god, it won't be wrong.

Indian Mind and the Progress:

Indian mind became philosophical and lover of knowledge when it followed a certain discipline. It was religiously disciplined. And out of this discipline emerged a philosophical mind though his subject matters were related to their knowledge relative to their time. Disciplined, regular and routined mind drew their knowledge and inspiration from within and if we say from nature it wont be wrong. Indian spirit relates nature to the self. So both (self and the nature) congratulated Indian mind and the progress.

Simplicity of Imagination:

The most distinguished aspect of Indian art reflects isolative nature of production very regional in nature. They were less mobile and mostly confined to their little geographically segregated boundaries. This helped protect simplicity of their imagination. Most of their works are regionally recognizable. Their growth in artistic feel is strongly tied with regional feel though mostly locally appreciated. As they grew out geographically for better occupation and with advancement of knowledge their cultural elements spread and brought alien influences. But they were so adhered to their traditions in practice and regular behavior that they could never disobey their principal characteristic features, even till date this is reflected in their art production. Simple Choices to Live with and for:

From Indian mythology to parental teaching the Indian mind has been educated to remain satisfied with whatever he or she has been given, the acceptance of this education left them with simple choices to live with and for, and returned them lots of leisure resulting into abundance of art creation. This indirectly affected their culturing of mind, art forms and choices.

Temple Art:

Virtuosity or god forms were so interrelated for them, that all their representations of this are highly decorated. It reflected their inner joy and respect for the forms. Temple art is good example of this. Temples are shaped as flower petals and the gods depicted were covered and surrounded with flower like shapes. Relating to god and relating to self was same for them. Their god forms were covered and protected with artistic shapes. God was something personal to them, personal to their feelings. Their days started with god and his decorative surroundings (the temples) and ends with the prayer and worshipping practices. This also used to be their centre of community activities where they collectively discuss their social and personal issues. God forms were routinely decorated with different colors and clothing depending on days and seasonal festivals and also to the nature of god.

God in Art:

God or goodness is same for them. Their subjection of god is personal, virtuous and sometimes social in nature collectively. A geographical region is represented by a collective representative god or god form.

They forget all their sufferings and worries in the presence of god. They worship and sing together in the praise of their god. Singing in the glory they relate themselves as convincing the might of their god who can remove all sufferings and would bring a day of joy, even 'moksha' or 'mukti' (salvation) some day. Some also understand that it brings it immediate as they submit their worries offering their devotion. They relate their god with some kind of benefit and virtue but are very strict to their choice and related ritual practices. To some educated minds god is a general representative of a virtue and they are not that much rigid to follow the ritual practices. They are liberal and flexible minds and see their ultimate god in different representative gods. Some relate their godly preferences with related understanding, scriptures, absolute knowledge and consciousness etc. Though less religious, those hardworking and socially higher in status have equal faith.

Their cultural expressions and art forms are very much determined by faith in god. God is, to them, a virtuous body, to please whom, one has to be equally virtuous. So in a way it spread a virtuous notion in society and affected very much their art expressions.

There had been little politics over superiority of god forms. It reflects their personal pride for their form of god but provided a classification to the cultural units (as having one or more representative gods). God is their subjection of ultimate destination, reality, well doer, and part of their every activity. Every daily activity begins with some kind of god related activity and remembrance of which is rarely forgotten.

An artist too, with all his or her subconscious submerged into some god and godly preference, creates his vision. So god is directly or indirectly part of every aesthetic creation. This is a representative of some positive virtue. A certain kind of 'bhav' (feeling) is expressed by the artist in his or her god-art form. Though mostly this is 'idealism' (of beauty, of appearance, of balance) and in other cases this is expression of grace, mercy, love etc.

Whatever the higher status of concentration an Indian artist attains causes them to be related and faithful to his or her spirit and some relate this to some manifested symbol and some merely believe in their abilities. But undoubtedly an Indian mind is highly spirit oriented and exceptionally religious, to such an extent being an orthodox.

Love in Indian Art:

Love in Indian art is to be felt by a loved mind. A beautiful mind creates it so it has to emit rays of love. Depiction of Radha and Krishna to animals residing peacefully in a natural setting is widely used. Highly ornate elements like flowers, curves convey the inner love and ability of Indian artist. Primarily artist's love is related to godly forms, nature and its elements. Artist's personal love, nature and religious beliefs is largely expressed in all their artworks. Love has been the most central emotion of all his creations.

USEFUL INFORMATIONS

M.K. Gupta

1 DELHI COP ARRESTED EVERY 2 DAYS

The Government told the Parliament on 9th March that no less than 500 Delhi Police personnel have been arrested on criminal charges over the last three years – an arrest every two days. A large number of policemen were arrested on graft charges. Last year, these included middle level officers holding ranks of ACP and inspector.



INDIA HAS 129 COPS PER 1 LAKH PEOPLE

At present, India has 129 cops per 1 lakh people, this was informed by the Govt. to the Parliament. There are existing vacancies of over 2.67 lakh of police personnel across the country. Nearly one-lakh police personnel across the country are in the security of VVIPs at the cost of security to common people/ public places. India has merely 129 cops per one lakh of population as against the United Nations norm of 220 police personnel per one lakh of population.


DWARKA CIRCULAR SEWA HEADING FOR CLOSURE!

In the start, 6 buses were pressed into service, which now have been reduced to two. On 10.3.2010, Shri Anoop Rohera and myself visited the Sector 8 depot and came to know from the reliable sources that the DTC will try this service for 2-3 days on some new route if it can succeed, service will continue otherwise, may be disbanded. Unless residents have been informed about the new routes, how DTC can expect success? Residents have from time to time given some useful suggestions and the some major suggestions were for proper publicity to this service, route map and its frequency but the implementation of these suggestions is not visible.

In a letter faxed on 9.3.2010, to the Chairman, DTC by Shri Sunil Sareen of Dwarka Forum, it has been informed to him that if this service fails, the DTC has to share some blame for this. Residents are requested to utilize this service, if it continues, in their own interest as one discontinued, it would be difficult to start this in near future.

GAS AGENCY FINED FOR NOT SUPPLYING GAS IN TIME

For the delay in the supply of Gas after booking many times, the Consumer Forum has ordered to an Indane Gas Agency named Radha Govind Gas Services imposed a penalty of Rs 11,000 on the Agency on the case filed by a consumer named Satya Pal Sharma of Bhrampuri, Delhi. In this case, though the consumer requested to book the gas on phone but the Agency has not booked it and this fact came to light when he personally visited the Agency.

Correlation Between Sexual Scandals and Disasters in the Path of Kundalini Yoga

Geeta
Spiritual healer

Chakra System PosterKundalini Yoga [K.Y.] is a secret path of achieving realization and liberation, by following certain laws, rules and secret practises. Although throughout life time the kundalini power remains in dormant state in the base of spine.


K.Y. enables one to balance creative- sex -energy, subconscious mind and physical body.The basic universal-cosmic energy lies dormant in the base of spine known as Kundalini or divine creative -sex-energy.
K.Y. teaches the simple and speedy techniques to focus the concentration upon this dynamic and cosmic power, to awake the kundalini.

Kundalini-awakening is a very sacred and secret knowledge and must be given and taught by a true Kundalini Yogi or spiritual master, only to those aspirants having full dedication and self control, under a closely guarded secret. Awakening of kundalini is truly a spiritual practice dedicated to realize the higher states of awareness, if it is uncontrolled and misused its awakening is fraught with disasters, scandals and distresses.
Kundalini Tantra/2009 Re-printK.Y. is a science of awakening the Kundalini power upward through the psychic passage of the spine, crossing the six chakra's present in the passage. Each chakra is the psychic centre and reservoir of Pranic Energy and directly connected to the brain. With the awakening of any chakras a massage is communicated with its particular corresponding portion of the brain triggering a specific physical and mental stimulation.

Each chakra has certain negative blocks and basic animal instincts. When kundalini power begins to raise, the negative energy blocks and patterns of that chakra slowly starts to get dissolve and cleansed in the divine universal energy.In this cleansing process if the disciple does not have proper guidance and knowledge of body, mind and soul he may face severe traumatic physical and mental disasters. The worst traumatic results of K.Y. are the manifestation of sexual scandals and disasters.

Some of the derogative sexual behaviours and patterns seen in the disciples of this path are:

Sexual urges increases many folds

Blocked Root Chakra TherapyThe Root chakra is the seat of animal instincts. It controls the unconscious mind.When awakening begins to take place the unconscious mind materials begin to surface on the conscious mind.The sudden bust of unconscious mind accentuate the suppressed sexual experiences, thoughts and activities of past and present life in a traumatic way.

The animal instinct of sexuality increases many folds, the disciple may lose in the physical and mental of word of deformed and perverted sexuality. Further with the awakening of second chakra the Naval Chakra the craving for sensuous pleasure increases several folds.

Sexual activities in lucid dreaming

With the rise of kundalini power the suppressed sexual patterns, memories and emotions stored in unconscious mind are manifested and released in lucid dreams as purification and cleansing process. The disciple may feel the abnormal sexual pleasures, stored in the memory of unconsciousness.

Sometime in the process of union of the Yin and Yan, he may feel multiple spiritual orgasms in the dreams or have erotic visions in the dreams.

Incidents of Astral sex and astral rape
With the opening of fourth chakra the Heart Chakra the person leaves the realm of physical word and enters the Para-normal domain, in the periphery of spiritualism. The disciple may feel extreme emotion of repeated sex and rape by psycho-spiritual subtle bodies of this and outer word entities. The subtle entities satisfy their sexual urges and gain spiritual power of kundalini energy earned by the disciple.

These lucid dreams may induce distress and mental illness in the disciple.
Sexual advantage taken by the masters and yogis in astral plane

Some powerful masters and strong disciples of K.Y can project them self in the astral plane, just by their intention. They can sexually abuse the other disciples of same or opposite sex; in theirs dreams and can also manipulate their minds, thoughts and emotions to gain sexual favours. In India many female disciples of K.Y. have complained of their masters and mentors for having repeated sex and rape in their dreams in astral forms, and taking sexual advantages in physical forms by manipulating their minds.
