South Korean Educationists join Van Mahotsav at Sri VIS, Sector-18, Dwarka


They planted ‘Ficus saplings’(Peepal and Bur) with hands, pushed the manure mixed mud, patted the ground and watered the saplings with sweat glistening on their brows…..

It is not the team of gardeners, we are talking about but officials and teachers from the Education Policy Bureau, Jeju Island, South Korea.

They became a part of the ‘Van Mahotsava’, they joined the school choir when it rendered the especially created song – ‘We’re the best’ for the Commonwealth Games.

Not knowing much Hindi or English, yet the bond of friendship overcome all hurdles and emerged stronger; binding us all in one common thread.



A 35 member Korean delegation from Jeju Island, Korea visited the school to compare the education systems in both the countries.

They had visited schools in Agra and Jaipur as well and when asked about which place in India impressed or influenced them the most, the spontaneous answer was, “this”.

Mr. Ko Wooh Soo, the Director of Education Policy Bureau was highly impressed and exchanged information on teaching of various subjects at different levels.

The visitors exchange gifts and textbooks. Students & faculty of middle school wing & class V were overwhelmed with the appreciation showered on them and conveyed through broken English & interpreted Korean.

This is to bring to your kind notice that Photograph which showing how dangerously the Indira Prastha Gas Limited installed domestic gas connection, which is seems to be very dangerous prone.

They have not bothered that it was crossing the live electricity connection, number of complained sent but no action being taken.


See how this dangerously they are installing the live domestic gas connection, which is seems to be very accident prone. Even number of gas connection is not being connected because of their internal technical problems, many residents living in the same locality having great difficulties.

CBI has no autonomy

Joginder Singh ji
Former Director - CBI

The Karnataka Lokayukta, who had resigned on the ground of the State Government’s alleged indifference to corruption and the fight against it only to withdraw his resignation later, has observed that the CBI has “a poor record of convictions”. At present, the Lokayukta is seized of the inquiry into the alleged illegal mining scam which has been going on for decades under successive Governments in the State. He felt that if the mining scam was to be taken away from him and given to some other agency, and the objectives of the agency were the same as his, he would have no objection. But if it was done for collateral reasons, he would certainly not agree.

Commenting on the Opposition's demand for a CBI inquiry, he said that it could have been motivated by collateral reasons. He added that the CBI “has closed many cases which ought to have ended in conviction… People are aware of those cases.” Even if one has been a judge in the highest court of the country, it does not automatically imply that one is fully aware of the ground rules and regulations governing the CBI and other related facts.

His contention about the conviction record is best refuted by a communication sent by the director of CBI to the Government in April 2009 which says that while the national conviction rate in trial cases is below 43 per cent and has even touched single digit in some States, the CBI’s conviction rate, at 70 per cent, is one of the highest in the world.

There is a mistaken impression that the CBI is an autonomous or independent body. It has become fashionable to bash the CBI for any reason, whether valid or otherwise. The CBI cannot either investigate a case or function in any State without the consent of the State Government.

The CBI cannot draw a roadmap for its own functioning as it is not a constitutional body like the Election Commission of India or the judiciary. The harsh reality is that arresting those responsible for committing the crimes being investigated by the CBI, including corruption, is the last priority of any Government, notwithstanding the proclamations of the high and mighty regarding zero tolerance towards corruption.

The plain truth is that no Government, irrespective of the party in power, wants an independent investigating agency or, for that matter, any independent institution which may not be willing to toe its line. The Government has more than one way to disable any independent functioning. It is not only through checks and balances but through delays and manipulations exercised in different ways that it can do so.

An eminent jurist says, “On the Jagdish Tytler drama and the trauma accompanying it, the more important question is the general one, of whether or not it isn’t time the CBI is made institutionally independent of pressures and pulls from within the Government and without. I believe we must have in place an Independent Bureau of Investigation instead. But this can only be done through a law expressly enacted by the Parliament.”

At present, the total strength of the CBI's staff is 5,900 with 30 per cent vacancies at any given time. In Delhi alone, there are a total of 1,389 CBI cases pending in courts of which pendency in the six courts of special judges is at 927. Of these, 171 cases have been pending in courts for more than eight years, 51 cases for more than 15 years and 39 cases are awaiting closure for more than 20 years. Additionally, chargesheets have not been framed in 119 cases dealt with by the CBI, as per a Delhi Cabinet note.

Coming to the overall pendency figures, of the total number of 1,557 cases under investigation in CBI in 2006, only 157 were over two years old while of the total number of 6,414 cases pending trial in the courts, 2,300 were over eight years old and 198 were over 20 years old.

According to the annual report for 2007-08 of the Delhi High Court, 3,32,141 cases came up for trial and each case received a hearing of five minutes — four minutes and 55 seconds are the precise figures. Each minute of the court’s time cost an astounding Rs 6,327 which boils down to Rs 19,93,180 for every working day.

All listed cases cost the court an average of Rs 1,300, even if many were adjourned immediately. The report, released by the then Chief Justice, shows that Delhi High Court disposed of 56,612 cases, including 47,017 that were filed in the same year. The High Court worked with 32 judges, much below its sanctioned strength of 48.

The then Chief Justice added that at the present rate of disposal, it would take 466 years for the High Court to clear its backlog of cases. The report shows that the rate of disposal of criminal cases in 2007-08 can be worked out to be 0.5 case per day. Launching the new litigation policy in July this year, the Union Law Minister said, “There are over two crore cases pending in Indian courts, 70 per cent of them involving the Government as either petitioner or respondent.” Explaining the spirit behind the move, the Minister stated that there were several instances of frivolous petitions being pursued by the Government, causing a huge loss to the public exchequer and burden on the judicial system.

Surely, for the collapse of the criminal justice system the CBI is not responsible. Any effort made to promote integrity and bring about a corruption-free public life is welcome. But unfortunately, the credibility of politicians in India is at its lowest ebb.

Whether it is with theUnion Government or the State Governments, the first priority is political survival — and pulling down others. In some cases, the Governors, who themselves are far from being models of probity, have joined issue with parties in power in the States. In some cases, Governors have refused to accord sanction for the prosecution of corrupt politicians against whom the courts have ordered an investigation by the CBI.

The solution is to grant constitutional status to the CBI and give the wherewithal to the judiciary, including manpower and equipment, to ensure that no case remains pending beyond six months or a year.

This writer has had the opportunity to interact with two Prime Ministers on the issue. While one of them was willing but had no political support to do this, the other objected to it, wondering why he should give his powers away. What the leaders and those in power have to do is incredibly simple. Whether or not they have the will to do the same is, however, another matter.

Bhagidari in Dwarka!! ??


Vijay K . Saluja
Convenor, `Social Outreach Programme` Committee

IIT Delhi Alumni Association

Living in Dwarka has become both an arduous & challenging task for some of the residents!?
Some may ask why?
These queries can be from persons living in Dwarka &/or from those who are not living in Dwarka. Query from outsiders is somewhat understandable? But, for persons who are living in Dwarka & raise this query, my personal view about them is either they are super-humans or they are not bothered at all, by these mundane things like chaos/garbage in the main markets-Sectors6,/10 & sectors4/12, garbage along the roads, markets, parks etc etc & overflowing dalaos/bins-some of these strategically located on main roads, too , accidents, chain-snatching etc etc.

While planning the sub-city, the concerned authorities must have in their mind, the idea of keeping the residents awareness programme about the stray cows, bulls, stray dogs & pigs in mind as an added [invisible] bonus to the Dwarka-residents. This is a very `successful` initiative of Bhagidari- of urban with rural. Any time of the day & night, no resident/users of these roads will be discriminated against! Everyone, at all hours, will have the benefit of watching some of the open plots meant for parks, being swallowed by filth & garbage & animals/dogs & rag-pickers, making a bee-line for those spots, to dispose off the accumulated waste, in the manner, they like?

Foreign tourists who regularly are brought in by tour-operators, to savour the sights of Delhi, will get the fringe benefits of visiting Dwarka & neighbouring areas & taking snaps/video shots of solid waste management system [non-conventional way], being innovatively practised [at low cost] in our Capital-the host of Commonwealth Games-2010. Dwarka & many other colonies can provide prize-winning snaps?!

Perhaps, that is why our Environment minister recently remarked at one of the event, that `India can win Nobel prize for dirt & filth & in having the distinction of dirtiest cities in the world`!

Day is not very far off when Dwarka will achieve the distinction of giving enough material to some researchers for preparing `Case Study-Solid Waste Management, Bhagidari Way- Animals & Humans`, which can then be presented by them, in a Session, in a prestigious Conference on `Sustainable Development`, in one of the capitals of Europe. I have a lurking hope, it could be adjudged the Best Paper & thus get the Prize, too?!

beautiful park

With the help of Social Development Welfare Society (a Regd. NGO), the park of A Block Palam Extension Sec 7, Dwarka is being developed. With ecological protection project initiated by the Organisation, the plan of developing this park was inaugrated. On this occasion, Mr Vijay Pandit Ji (Nigam Parshad, Palam), Mr K K Singh (Chief Advisor, Ecology Dept, Delhi Govt.), NGO President Mr Naresh Lamba, Mr Ratan Lal Kaushik, Dr S K Bhati Ji, Mr Yugal Kishore Divedi, and Dada Sri Brahma Singh Lamba ji planted the banyon tree and Genreal Secretary of the Organisation Mr Satbir Singh Rana, Vice President, Mr Manish Man Ji, and Treasurer Mrs Saroj Ji inaugrated the event with breaking the coconut.

On this occasion, the main respected people of the area, Mr Kishan Lamba, Maj. Sangwan, Mr Naresh Master, Mr Surat Karan, Mr Noor Mohammad, Mr Satish Saroha, Brig R P Singh, Master Hari Om Gupta, assured the Organisation for every possible help.

Make amended Consumer Protection Act for Aam Aadmi

1.  Grievances Redressal System of Consumer Protection Act (CPA), 1986 in the present form safeguards the interests of the rich cheating real estate builders, goods manufacturers and traders though meant for stopping unfair trade practices and unscrupulous exploitation of consumers. Besides quicker disposal of the cases at all three levels (District, State and National), CPA urgently needs amendment in Appeal Clause (Section 15, 19 and 23).    

2.    Section 15 of the CPA provides, "No appeal by a person who is required to pay any amount in terms of an order of the District Forum, shall be entertained by the State Commission unless the appellant has deposited in the prescribed manner fifty percent of that amount or Twenty Five Thousand Rupees, whichever is less". Against the State Commission award, (or) the amount is thirty five thousand (Section 19) and against the National Commission award, (or) the amount is fifty thousand only to be deposited in the Supreme Court of India.

3.    This is the freedom of cheating and harassing the victimized consumers given by the CPA, 1986 to the rich real estate builders and goods manufacturers.The award of Rs. 50 Lakhs to one crore at State Commission level and a few crores award by the National Commission need not be paid. Instead paying just Rupees 35 or 50 thousand, cases can be prolonged for years together.

4.   Please remove this anti-consumer provision of "or Rupees .......thousand, whichever is less" from the Consumer Protection Act and let the UPA-II show that it really wants to give justice to the Aam Aadmi.

Sri VIS. Sector 18 Dwarka appreciating its students with a difference


Tulsi saplings to each awardee along with books, trophies & certificates from the only female Guiness book entry from India, world-famous mountaineer, Padamshri Santosh Yadav, in front of their parents, made the day different and memorable for the young 435 awardees of the school. Other dignitaries included Chairman SVIS Mr. Sailander Solanki, Chairman VGS, Mr. Rajiv Solanki, Principal VGS, Ms. Kavita Soni.
SVIS believes in providing a holistic platform for the students where in they are given appreciation and incentives not only for their academic performance but also for their various multiple intelligences.
The Principal SVIS, Ms. Nita Arora congratulated both the parents and the children and motivated the parents to encourage multiple intelligences in their children. She enlightened the parents about this theory which proposes that each child has some talent that need to be identified and groomed with patience, understanding & maturity on the part of parents & teachers alike.
The programme began with the lighting of the lamp followed by a beautiful performance on the Saraswati Vandana by the students. The school choir made the stage come alive with the song “We are the Best” – that is to be launched for the Commonwealth Games by the SVIS family.
The event included a plethora of programmes that exhibited the talent of the children like ‘Krishna Dance’, “Korean Dance”, a skit on “Multiple Intelligences” and much more.
The awards were given out for various categories like Proficiency in subjects, Overall Excellence award, Innovative hands, Mozart, Tapping Toes etc.
The Chief Guest Padamshree Santosh Yadav felicitated the parents, teachers and the students. She motivated and inspired the children with her beautiful words of wisdom. She also presided over a tree plantation ceremony conducted in association with The Lioness Club, East Patel Nagar.
 ‘Tulsi Saplings’ gifted by the The Eco-Club of school to each awardee for nurturing will help in cleaning the cobwebs of mind and also will aid in purifying the nature.

ONLY RCS CAN STAY AFTER SO MANY ADVERSE COURT ORDERS – COURTESY DELHI GOVT.

M K GUPTA

Grievances are similar, two Courts (Supreme Court and Delhi HC), different Justices, one Respondent named Registrar of Co-operative Societies, petitioners in these cases are CGHS Societies in Dwarka and elsewhere. Grievance --> callous and indifferent attitude of Registrar of Co-operative Societies for conducting the draw. All the Hon’ble judges from Justice S K Kaul, Justice Valiki J Mehta, Justice A.K. Sikri, Justice Reva Khetrapal and others, all putting the Registrar of Co-operative Societies in to the dock. Yesterday, in the case of Raj Vihar, Delhi High HC has charged the Registrar with contempt. Also, in the case of Delhi Apartments, Court rejected the demand of appointing the Administrator instead of appointing the Returning Officer for conducting the elections. Earlier, HC ordered to forward the file of Apni Society to the DDA within 15 days but the RCS is ‘examining’ the order of the HC. To delay the allotment, it may file an appeal at the very late stage taking on one pretext or the other requesting for condoning the delay. Most of the orders issued are against the RCS whether they are in the case of Anjuman, Saptarni or Sunny Valley and a number of other Societies. So far, no action on the Court orders to conduct the draw in a phased manner. Even for the documents which are with the CBI, Registrar is not moving an inch and holding the draw as if the CBI does not belong to India and RCS cann’t approach the CBI. RCS is rather putting the onus on the Societies for the delay and above all, blaming the societies for the self-draw.

Even the Appellate Tribunal for Co-operative Societies is not functioning for the last so many months and the position at that level is no appeal, no vakil and no dalil.

Interestingly, the Delhi Co-operative Minister, Mr Raj Kumar Chauhan and RCS state that for the delay, the societies are responsible. Even as per the RCS own admission, proposal of Anjuman has been approved and scrutiny is complete in the case of Diamond square and Shivani CGHS but file has not been sent to the DDA till the release of the advt. There are reasonable doubt if the RCS has sent these files to DDA after that. Central Govt. and UPA Chairman are mute spectators. Delhi Govt. is moving with snail pace seemingly protecting the RCS office for its highhandedness, indifferent and heartless approach.

If this is the position in the national capital of Delhi, what can be said about the rest of the country?

I propose to change the name of RCS to Registrar against the co-operation with Societies.

Cleaning campaign by NEIGHBOURHOOD LADIES TOGETHER (NHLGT)


As an initiative call from the NEIGHBOURHOOD LADIES TOGETHER  (NHLGT), morning walkers and yoga  devotees, a cleaning campaign was started at no:4 park in sector 23, Dwarka on 13th June 2010. Fourty bagfuls  of  plastic and other garbage  was collected followed by a serious discussion on improving the other unattended parks and gardens in Dwarka. The plants in many parks have not been watered for a long period.
On May 9th, at the call of NHLGT, people from the societies watered the plants in their respective nearby parks. Later we went on a delegation led by Mr. Langer, an electrical engineer by profession, to upraise the conditions of the parks to the Deputy Director of Horticulture department. As a result of our pursuit, a bore well was dug and the plants in the parks regained their lost hue and grace.

                 The next burning issue of the society is the garbage dumping. A few vacant plots, especially the one which lies between Basava International school and Paramount School ,both in sector 23, has become  a full fledged dump yard emanating strong stench, making it intolerable for the nearby residents .The rag pickers have their fair share in adding on to the woes.  Though trash bins have been chained to place of late in few societies, the end of the day is met with scattered garbage, not to mention the lingering mephitis, thanks to the untiring rag pickers.

          The sporadic showers have only worsened the situation with giving way for breeding mosquitoes, snakes n messy rats. With schools adjoining these areas it poses a grave health hazard for the children of these schools. The vegetable haat which comes up twice a week in front of Indian Heights School also wears a garbage donned look the day after the haat.

 Children are our future. It is our duty to provide them with the everlasting wealth : good health.

Therefore, It is  requested that MCD take immediate  action to curb all these civic menace. Regular emptying of the garbage bins in front of each society  at least twice a  day is mandatory as well as regular watering of plants in all the parks to preserve  the greenery.

          In the wake of all these issues, we have sent letters under UPC to the area Deputy Commissioner, Mr Bhagat and also have contacted area inspector Mr. Meena.

प्यासी होती सभ्यता

मीनाक्षी अरोड़ा

"अगले सौ वर्षों में धरती से मनुष्यों का सफाया हो जाएगा।" ये शब्द आस्ट्रेलियन नेशनल युनिवर्सिटी के प्रोफेसर फ्रैंक फैनर के हैं। उनका कहना है कि ‘जनसंख्या विस्फोट और प्राकृतिक संसाधनों के बेतहाशा इस्तेमाल की वजह से इन्सानी नस्ल खत्म हो जाएगी। साथ ही कई और प्रजातियाँ भी नहीं रहेंगी। यह स्थिति आइस-एज या किसी भयानक उल्का पिंड के धरती से टकराने के बाद की स्थिति जैसी होगी।’ फ्रैंक कहते हैं कि विनाश की ओर बढ़ती धरती की परिस्थितियों को पलटा नहीं जा सकता। पर मैं ज्यादा कुछ नहीं कहना चाहता क्योंकि कई लोग हालात में सुधार की कोशिश कर रहे हैं। पर मुझे लगता है कि अब काफी देर हो चुकी है।
 
धीरे-धीरे धरती से बहुत सारे जीव-जन्तु विदा हो गए। दुनिया से विलुप्त प्राणियों की ‘रेड लिस्ट’ लगातार लम्बी होती जा रही है। इन्सानी फितरत और प्राकृतिक संसाधनों के अंधाधुंध दोहन ने हजारों जीव प्रजातियों और पादप प्रजातियों को हमारे आस-पास से खत्म कर दिया है। औद्योगिक खेती और शहरी-ग्रामीण विकास में वनों के विनाश ने महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाई है। अकेले भारत में ही लगभग 1336 पादप प्रजातियां असुरक्षित और संकट की स्थिति में मानी गई हैं।


इन्टरनेशनल यूनियन फॉर कंजर्वेशन ऑफ नेचर (आईयूसीएन) की रिपोर्ट में कहा गया है कि धरती से 7291 जीव प्रजातियाँ इस समय विलुप्ति के कगार पर हैं। वनस्पतियों की 70 फीसदी प्रजातियों और पानी में रहने वाले जीवों की 37 फीसदी प्रजातियों और 1147 प्रकार की मछलियों पर भी विलुप्ति का खतरा मंडरा रहा है।

हमारे आस-पास के जीव-जन्तु और पौधे खत्म होते जा रहे हैं। हम केवल चिंता और चिंतन का नाटक कर रहे हैं। दूसरों के जीवन को समाप्त करके आदमी अपने जीवन चक्र को कब तक सुरक्षित रख पाएगा? ईश्वर के बनाए हर जीव का मनुष्य के जीवन चक्र में महत्व है। मनुष्य दूसरे जीव के जीवन में जहर घोल कर अपने जीवन में अमृत कैसे पाएगा?

वर्तमान समय में तीन रुझान ऐसे हैं जो मानव जाति के भविष्य पर मंडराते खतरे की ओर गम्भीर संकेत कर रहे हैं - मौसम सम्बन्धी आपदाओं में बढ़ोत्तरी, पीने के साफ पानी की बढ़ती माँग और मानव और पशु अंगों की कालाबाजारी। धरती पर पिछली शताब्दी, पर्यावरण और मौसम सम्बन्धी आपदाओं और दुर्घटनाओं की रही है, जिसमें सूखा, अत्यधिक तापमान, बाढ़, भूस्खलन, तूफान, जंगलों की आग आदि भी शामिल हैं।

कई चौंका देने वाले तथ्य भी सामने आए हैः जैसे कि पिछली शताब्दी में हमने बहुत सी प्राकृतिक आपदाएं देखी, सुनी और झेली। तूफान, चक्रवात, जंगलों की आग, बाढ़ आदि बहुत सी प्राकृतिक आपदाएं आईं यानी हम कह सकते हैं कि पृथ्वी अपने पर हुए अत्याचार के बदले में अपना गुस्सा प्रकट कर रही थी। जलवायु परिवर्तन और ग्लोबल वार्मिंग की वजह से कितने ही द्वीप देखते ही देखते काल के गर्त में चले गए। समुद्र का स्तर बढ़ जाने से द्वीप डूब रहे हैं उधर कार्बन उत्सर्जन से तापमान बढ़ रहा है। बढ़ते तापमान से ग्लेशियर पिघल रहे हैं, नदियों में पानी नहीं है। कहीं बाढ़ आ रही है तो कहीं सूखा पड़ रहा है। पानी में आर्सेनिक, लोराइड और अब तो यूरेनियम तक मिल रहा है। परिणामस्वरूप पानी और धरती विषैले हो रहे हैं।

दुर्भाग्य से कार्बन उत्सर्जन, भूमि की विषाक्तता बढ़ने तथा जमीन और पानी के बढ़ते प्रदूषण के मामलों में हम अब भी उतने सक्रिय और तेज नहीं हैं, जितना होना चाहिये। बजाय इसके कि हम अपने को किसी क्रियात्मक गतिविधि में लगाते, हम सिर्फ अपने उपभोग के तौर-तरीकों को “कथित” रूप से ठीक करने में लगे हुए हैं। इतना ही नहीं हम पर्यावरण के प्रति जागरुकता के अपने अल्पज्ञान को छिपाने की कोशिश करते हैं।

हम औद्योगिक विश्व की क्षमताओं से बड़े अचम्भित होते हैं, लेकिन इस बात पर जरा भी ध्यान नहीं देते कि हमारे आसपास आवश्यक संसाधन और बुनियादी सुविधाओं की क्या स्थिति है? अलबत्ता पश्चिमी जीवनशैली की टैक्स पद्धति को हम वैश्विक स्तर पर अपनाने लगे हैं। सच तो यही है कि हम अभी तक समस्या की सही पहचान ही नहीं कर पाये हैं कि दुनिया अपनी जिम्मेदारियों के प्रति सामूहिक इंकार की स्थिति का सामना कर रही है।

विश्व बैंक की एक रिपोर्ट के अनुसार प्रत्येक बीस वर्ष में शुद्ध पेयजल की माँग दोगुनी रतार से बढ़ रही है, जबकि विकासशील देशों में पानी की आपूर्ति असमान है। समस्या के विकराल होने का अंदाजा इसी बात से लगाया जा सकता है कि आए दिन पानी को लेकर मार-पीट, झगड़े न केवल लोगों के बीच बल्कि राज्यों और देशों के बीच भी हो रहे हैं। संविधान में सभी को बराबर अधिकार दिये गए हैं लेकिन कुछ सरकारें लोगों से पानी के समान अधिकार तक को छीन रही हैं।

पानी के दुरुपयोग को रोकने के नाम पर हाल में विश्वबैंक की अनुशंसा पर एक फ्रांसीसी कंसल्टेंट-कास्टेलिया को मुम्बई में जलसेवाओं का निजीकरण करने के के उद्देश्य से सर्वेक्षण का ठेका दिया गया, जिसने अपनी रिपोर्ट में कईं सिफारिशे रखीं जिनमें बस्ती निवासियों के लिये प्रीपेड वाटरमीटर के लिये भी कहा गया। हालांकि बाकी कुछ इलाके ऐसे हैं, जिनमें 150 लि. प्रति व्यक्ति निःशुल्क जल प्रदाय होगा उससे ज्यादा पानी इस्तेमाल करने पर भुगतान करना होगा। लेकिन बस्तीवासियों के लिये ऐसा नियम नहीं है। उन्हें इस्तेमाल से पहले ही भुगतान करना होगा। जरा सोचिये! जो गरीब रोटी के लिये दर दर भटकता है वो पानी के लिये पहले ही भुगतान कहां से करेगा। पानी बचाने के नाम पर यह अन्याय कैसे सहा जा सकता है?

अभी तक ब्राजील, अमेरिका, फिलीपींस, नामीबिया, स्वाजीलैंड, तंजानिया, नाइजीरिया, ब्रिटेन और चीन आदि जगहों पर प्रीपेड वाटर मीटर इस्तेमाल किये जा चुके हैं, लेकिन जहां कहीं भी ये मीटर लगाए गए वहां हैजा और अन्य बीमारियां फैल गईं। क्योंकि भुगतान न कर सकने की स्थिति में लोग असुरक्षित और गंदे स्रोतों से पानी लेने लगते हैं। अब मुम्बई में वही स्थित होने वाली है। सामुदायिक हैंडपंपों का रख-रखाव ठीक न करके प्रीपेड वाटर मीटर द्वारा लोगों को पानी बेचने की कोशिश सरकारों की प्राकृतिक संसाधनों के प्रति अदूरदर्शिता ही बताता है।

यह सही है कि इन मीटरों की वजह से पानी की खपत में कमी आ सकती है लेकिन गरीबों के सार्वजनिक स्वास्थ्य और साफ-सफाई की स्थिति बदतर हो जाएगी।

अमेरिका और ब्रिटेन ने तो लोगों के स्वास्थ्य पर बुरा प्रभाव पड़ने के कारण प्रीपेड वाटर मीटर का इस्तेमाल 90 के दशक में ही बंद कर दिया था। यू.के. वाटर एक्ट 1998 में ऐसे किसी भी उपकरण का इस्तेमाल करने से मनाही है जिससे उपभोक्ता के पास पैसा न होने की वजह से उसकी जलापूर्ति बंद हो जाए।

पानी की बढ़ती माँग और आपूर्ति के बीच सन्तुलन कैसे बनाया जाये इस बात पर विचार करने के लिये कोई न कोई दूरगामी नीति बनानी ही पड़ेगी। कुल मिलाकर पानी की बढ़ती माँग तथा उसकी अनिश्चित आपूर्ति समूची मानव प्रजाति को संकट में डालने जा रही है।

2.  POLICE FORCE FOR WEST DELHI

The one police staffer for 755 people is sanctioned in Delhi but at present, one police personal is doing duty for about 1,000 persons. The sanctioned and actual staff for West Delhi is as follows:

Post-------Sanctioned Posts------- Present Post
Inspector-----------58-----------------48
Sub-inspector------177----------------94
ASI----------------219---------------165
Head Constable----624----------------408
Constable---------1554---------------1318


3. COLA COMPANIES EXEPMTED FROM MENTIONING INGREDIENTS

You will not be able to know the list of ingredients on bottles of cola companies, but you will know the nutritional value of the drink, this was said by the government.  Earlier, the CIC has slapped a fine of Rs. 25,000 on the PIO of Food Safety and Standards Authority of India on an appeal to Central Informaion Commission filed by Shri S C Agrawal, a prominent RTI activist.  The exemption for publishing because of Cola Companies plea that it re-uses the empty bottles. 

However, after the introduction of disposable plastic bottles many years ago, there is no re-use of cola bottles and plea of Cola companies is untenable.  Not mentioning the name also amount to the denial of right to know about the product which we are consuming.  Govt. should order the Cola companies to publish the details of ingredients used in the drink and let the consumers decide themselves about the nutritional value.

Don’t appease the monster

Joginder Singh ji
( Former Director -CBI)

Last week’s newspapers had a telling photograph which showed a group of young men thrashing a policeman lying on a road in Srinagar. Nobody had stepped forward to save him from the wrath of the protesters or stop the assailants from perpetrating the outrage. The photograph reminded me of my tenure as Inspector-General of Police in Srinagar during 1988-89, which was the worst period of insurgency in Jammu & Kashmir.

That was the time when the Jammu & Kashmir Liberation Front, which had kidnapped the daughter of then Home Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed, and demanded the release of five Pakistan-trained terrorists. The Government had abjectly surrendered to the JKLF’s demand to secure the release of Rubaiya Sayeed. A decade later, another Government released three terrorists to secure the freedom of the passengers of an Indian Airlines flight which had been hijacked to Kandahar.

The Government of India has been persisting with the mistaken belief that its perverse policy of appeasement will lead to some positive results. On the contrary, such repeated capitulation has been a morale-booster for terrorists and separatists, and has led to the Union Government finding itself pushed into a corner.

One only needs to look at a few examples for evidence of the Government’s folly: Parents and families of terrorists killed in open encounters are given an ex-gratia of Rs 10 lakh meant for their rehabilitation while assistance hardly ever reaches the families of their victims. More is being done for terrorists than for the four lakh Hindus and Sikhs who were forced to leave the Kashmir Valley as part of the ethnic cleansing launched by the terrorists and separatists. The region-wise demography of Jammu & Kashmir is reproduced with this article and the figures are are self-explanatory.

Things have come to such a pass that any use of force in self-defence by security forces in the Kashmir Valley is not only frowned upon but openly criticised by all, including the State Government. In some places, if a terrorist is killed, their supporters run riot. Every citizen of India has the right to defend himself except, it seems, the personnel of security forces.

Whether it is by the media or the Government, security forces are labelled the villains of the piece — responsible for all ills in the Kashmir Valley. It is this tacit support that emboldens the terrorists, encouraging them to make anti-India statements which they are then allowed to get away with. Mrs Margaret Thatcher had once rightly said that “publicity is the oxygen of terrorism”. It is publicity which gives terrorists a larger-than-life image.

The result of all of this is that political parties compete with each other to offer implicit support to terrorism. Winning remains the first, second and third priority of all politicians — regardless of the means, even if that means selling one’s soul to the devil.

The common Kashmiri citizen, who wants to lead a peaceful life, is dragged unnecessarily into the vicious circle of violence. He cannot defy the diktat of the terrorists with even the local Government going overboard to appease them. He feels that it is pointless to look to the Government for protection as even politicians are living under the shadow of the gun.

Nowhere in the world has terrorism been countered with sweet talk and dismal surrender. The security forces do not bear a grudge against any Kashmiri. They are merely following orders to maintain law and order. Hence, anybody who throws stones at security forces or attacks them must expect retaliation with double the might. This simple reality is lost on the terrorists and separatists, many of whom have been ironically provided with security by the Government, who instigate violence on any and every issue — be it temporary rest houses for Hindu pilgrims on their way to the Amarnath shrine or the visit of the Prime Minister to the Kashmir Valley.

The worst sufferer is the ordinary Kashmiri. Investors shy away from a place where strikes are called regularly and violence erupts at the drop of a hat. Tourists, too, think twice before booking a flight to Srinagar. It suits the interests of the terrorists to keep the Valley in a disturbed state lest pro-Pakistani politicians lose their audience. In the span of one week last month, five persons died and 65 others — including 32 policemen — were injured in violent clashes in the Kashmir Valley.

The way small-time politicians are going about wrecking the economy of the State is reprehensible. No amount of financial assistance can improve this situation. Despite the Prime Minister’s repeated visits, his offers of dialogue have found no takers.

Terror-mongers have got away with massacres of Hindus and Sikhs in the Muslim-majority Kashmir Valley, with the Government of India playing the role of a mute spectator. If anyone from Kashmir is unhappy to be in India, including those speaking of secession, it is time for them to quietly migrate to Pakistan or any other country.

On February 15, 2006, US Congressman Frank Pallone introduced a resolution in the House of Representatives condemning the violation of human rights of Kashmiri Pandits. He stated that an ethnic cleansing campaign was being run by jihadis to convert Kashmir into an Islamic state and four lakh Kashmiri Pandits had either been murdered or displaced from their homes. The resolution was passed by the House (with the Senate concurring). It stated that the US Congress condemns the human rights violations committed against Kashmiri Pandits in the strongest terms and that it is the sense of Congress that the Government of India and the State Government of Jammu & Kashmir should take immediate steps to remedy the situation and act to ensure the physical, political and economic security of this embattled community.

It is now up to the Government of India to pick up the gauntlet. Responsibility walks hand-in-hand with power which, in the present case, does not appear to have been exercised. What we need is a clear, consistent and comprehensive policy on Jammu & Kashmir that is free of past errors of judgement.

WHO IS SUPREME - HIGH COUR OR RCS?

M K Gupta

In the review meeting on the progress on allotment of flats in the CBI investigated societies on 10th May in Hon’ble LG office, it was decided that the Registrar of Co-operative Societies a “forward a proposal for draw of lot to DDA with members who are found to be in he clear”. Doubtful cases could be taken up for detailed scrutiny thereafter”. Asok Kumar of Suffering Members Assn says that the decision was taken with the RCS’s consent. But till the issue of advt on 9.7.2010, it no file has moved from RCS office to the DDA. In the advt RCS has admitted that in case of Anjuman, Diamond Square and Shivani, either proposal has been approved by the RCS or it has completed the scrutiny.

On the issue of revival of defunct societies and enrolment of genuine members, the minutes recorded “in terms of equity, the current bonafide members should not be allowed to suffer.”

In the case of Apni Society, RCS has mentioned in the advt. that the Court directions are being examined. High Court has directed to forward the file to the DDA for the draw within 15 days. HC directions can either be examined by the bigger bench of the same court or by the Supreme Court. RCS should have either filed an appeal against the judgment and should have obtained a stay order. Even the Hon’ble President of India has no power to examine the Court orders to decide for their implementation or not. Apni Society file has not been sent to the DDA even after over 40 days from the date of order. In the absence of obtaining any stay, RCS had no option but to forward the file to the DDA recommending for the draw. Since RCS is sitting over the file, it a clear case of contempt of court due to non-compliance of court order.

About some societies like Anjuman, RCS has given incomplete information saying proposal approved by RCS but refrained to mention the date of approval. On Diamond square and Shivani CGHS, dates of completion of scrutiny have not been mentioned. Though the Association of Suffering Members and members of Societies claim that this has been done four/five years ago. RCS has not even mentioned the period within which it intends to forward the file to the DDA for draw.

In the face of these and other facts showing the RCS in poor light, public wonder why the Delhi govt has soft peddling against the RCS and why the Centre has become a mute spectator only and watching the genuine members suffering?

Human body is a tool to know the real purpose of this life - Dr. Yogeeshwari Devi (Didiji)



Sudha
 Golokdham is a  ‘Radhakrishn Mandir’ and ‘Satsang Centre’ of  the Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat (JKP) organisation situated at
Sector -10, Dwarka.
 
  Dr. Yogeeshwari Devi (Didiji) is in-charge of this centre and is a senior disciple of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj,.  She is a Ph.D in Physics from Delhi University, but material studies didn't satisfy her thirst for knowledge of the Supreme and when she met Shree Maharajji, she found the answer to all her questions on life, who we are, what is the aim etc,. and now she is fully dedicated to spread the philosophy of Shri krishn bhakti  for  the seekers of genuine spiritual knowledge.

July 8th is the birthday of Didiji.  All the devotees celebrated her birthday with great love and enthusiasm. She said birthday of this body is not at all important. But in this human body if we meet a Sadguru and come to know the real purpose of this life and then make others also understand and practically pursue spiritual practice in that direction, then it is like thanksgiving to the Guru who has made it worthy of living a meaningful life!  So it was celebrated with chanting Harinaam and she explained about her spiritual master who is the 5th ORIGINAL  Jagadguru in the past 5000 years!! 

It started with the aarti to Guru and Yugal Sarkar (Radha-Krishn). Then chanting of the beautiful names of God was done. Didiji began her spiritual discourse on how she met Shree Maharajji .She met HIM 37 years ago. She considers that herself as 37 years old. She said, ‘It was the real birth for me after meeting HIM. “ Shree Maharajji is very compassionate and ever ready to grace the souls who come to HIM with even a little interest in spirituality/divinity.  During those days, HE used to be in bhaav (spiritual ecstasy) most of the time which was found in Sri Ramkrishn Paramhans and Shree Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.  Many devotees who were very high in their spiritual sadhana and who were graced by Gurudev, realised that Shree Maharajji is also an avataar and Mahapurush. The literature  revealed by Maharajji for ‘Jeev kalyaan’ (upliftment of souls), one can feel the absolute divinity of HIS personality and when one reads with full faith and devotion you transcend to the higher plane. One can also experience the fact that Shree Maharajji is on a totally different (Divine) realm even though HE is in front of us in his physical form. 

According to scriptures, the mind is the root cause of bondage and liberation. Two important methods are prescribed for mind purification - one is chanting of Harinaam, and the second is daan (charity).  The saints teach us that it is very very important to know the meaning of chanting, and charity. Harinaam chanting should be done while attaching our mind to the lotus feet of Hari, So, the main thing is 'smaran bhakti', remembering Hari-Guru always. Now about daan (charity), the scriptures say that it should be done towards God and a God-realised saint (Mahapurush). Through these two activities, we get slowly detached from the worldly desires and get attached to the lotus feet of Lord. The desire to know HIM increases slowly and this is possible only when we get the association of a Mahapurush.  He graces us with devotion, which is the most important thing for a devotee to progress spiritually on the right path and achieve the goal of God realisation.

Didiji explained one of the kirtans written by Shree Maharajji - that we are indebted to the Lord for all His favours, HE has given a human body to us to understand the purpose of life and get out of the cycle of birth and death. With HIS causeless mercy, HE revealed the Ved for us and sent HIS associates as saints to teach  us. HE HIMself came as avtaar many times to teach us how to love God and take us back to HIS abode. But still this mind, which is full of desires and attachments to the worldly things and people, doesn't listen to the saints/ scriptures. So we have to beg for HIS mercy so that this mind of ours listens to these gems of words told to us by Saints and makes us work practically in that path.

POWER OF RTI IN CURTAILING DELAY IN PASSPORT

M. K. Gupta


Now, we can expect issue of passport without undue delay if we use RTI in case of delay. An applicant, named Amit applied for passport on 2nd June, 10 and the website of passport office was continuously showing status as police verification pending. He filed an RTI application to know about the status on 5th July which was delivered on 6th. Today, on 10th, just after 3/4 days, police verification was undertaken by an official.

We generally hear that the visiting official on this occasion demands money but surprisingly, there was no such expectation or demand. This seems the power of RTI application that immediately after its delivery, the police verification was over. Now, applicant expects to receive the passport shortly.

MY MOMENT OF TRUTH

Raji v.

(Director, Ascent Academy
and  Dwarka Parichay Panelist)

The clean air, the garbage free surrounding, the neatly maintained public places, tourist spots and monuments…… were they real; Yes, Yes, they were absolutely real. It was all painstakingly done, it did not just happen.

I was in the U.S of A, last month. When I got off the plane and came out of the airport I felt good about being in a clean place. I visited Washington D.C. We went to the ‘Museum of Human Origin, ‘Museum of American History and the ‘Air and Space Museum ‘. The people were well behaved and disciplined. No body littered the place with polythene bags, chips packets or plastic water bottles. There were huge ‘Trash Cans for bio- degradable and non biodegradable waste every 200 meters. Even kids were never found relieving themselves in open areas!

New Jersey , Maryland, Atlanatic City, Washington D.C., Orlando or Pennsilvania were the places I visited in a month. I could not see any stretch of bare land. I was told that the authorities immediately covered any bare land with grass. They planted grass beds and it was covered with a net that mixed with the mud after some time This prevents the dust from flying. The green cover they maintain was amazing.

I found one stark difference in the attitude of the people. People took their personal responsibility more seriously. Even sorting out the garbage was done at everyone`s home itself. We can continue to give excuses for not doing something as small as trying to avoid littering public places or refusing polythene bags when we go to buy vegetables or even avoiding spitting out of the cars.


In the name of religion and charity let us not litter our surroundings. When, we distribute `cold sweetened water` at crossings, let us ensure that the plastic glasses are collected in a `trash can` and disposed properly. On the 25th of June while I was driving past ‘Sri Ganesh’ Apartments’ and ‘Happy Home’ Apartments, I was appalled to see the plastic glasses flying all along the road. I sure felt sad.

Let us ‘Go Green’

My friends this is a call from one Indian to all the Dwarkaites,young and old, please take pride in what our country stood for earlier. Let us all strive to keep our environment clean. Together we can and we will. Let us try and restore the green cover. Let us, make ‘Dwarka’ a model town ship.
