Workshop on Meditation & Stress Management


A rejuvenating workshop on Meditation & Stress Management was conducted by BramhaKumaris at The Indian Heights School, Sector-23, Dwarka, on June 25, 2014.For over thirty years, the Brahma Kumaris have been helping to bring people of different faiths and cultures together, believing that a deeper understanding between faiths, based on acceptance and respect, will contribute to a culture of peace and non-violence in our world community. Theypractice and teach a form of meditation that relaxes the mind and nurtures a healthy balance between our inner and outer worlds.

This workshop was an eye opener as it revealed the causes of stress and how stress can lead to unhealthy state of mind and body. Stress Management is basically managing our own minds. Some of the highlights of the workshop were to follow a healthy life style, the essential self is silence and Self-knowledge and Self introspection is the need of the hour. Overall, the teachers enjoyed and learnt a lot on being positive.

SIX POINT PROGRAMME FOR IMPLEMENTATION BY OUR GOVERNMENT


Concerned at the sharply escalating number of assaults on women, rapes and murders, we urge the govt. to consider the following suggestions put forward by our group in a quest for justice and making our country safe for its women citizens.

1. Amendment of Juvenile Justice Laws

Some parts of current juvenile justice laws are not in tandem with international protocols, and also scientifically unsound. They need to be reviewed and revised and evolve with the society they are designed to serve.
*The age of 16-18 years should be considered as a ‘transition zone’ between childhood and adulthood. Delinquents falling in this age bracket must not be under the jurisdiction of juvenile courts only. In this subset, those convicted of heinous crimes like homicide and rape, must be tried in an adult court and given a severe sentence.
*For younger offenders committing serious offences like sexual assault and homicide, the minimum sentence should be 10 years in a remand home. After which, there must be proper re-evaluation by a board of expert psychiatrists before they are declared fit enough to be released from the home and reintegrated into the society at large.
*Records of mental health and crimes committed by teenagers must be maintained meticulously by the remand homes for each delinquent.
*Rapes of minors should be treated as a special category and special wards for minors should be set up in hospitals. All hospitals to be directed to comply with this requirement forthwith. Teams consisting of paediatricians, counsellors and specially trained nurses should handle such cases.

2. Speedy and trustworthy processing of samples in Criminal Forensic Laboratories
*The collection and processing of data such as vaginal swabs in rape cases is wholly inadequate and needs thorough overhaul.
*The current laboratories should conform to international ISO Protocols and all records should be independently verifiable and specimens preserved for review by other labs in case of conflicting reports.
*Scientists/ lab assistants who allow specimen tampering should be considered to be aiding and abetting the crime and dealt with in the severest possible manner.
*The long waiting period for sample processing should be brought down to one month by increasing the number of forensic laboratories from the current 3-4 existing today. The entire cost of a good DNA Analysis system along with supporting infrastructural requirements is currently well under 1 crore. Thus, apart from their being a necessity, new centres are easily affordable.

3. Speedy implementation of Police Reforms

Police reforms to begin being implemented, in stages if necessary.

Low tolerance for non-performance of duty by police officers and those preventing lodgement of FIR’S unnecessarily should be deemed to be aiding and abetting the criminal.

All FIR‘s lodged should be in camera. This will discourage rude behaviour from police officials and perhaps bring down the rate of lodgement of false and vengeful counter FIR’S against the victim and victim’s family.

4. Schools to modify curriculum where incomplete

Moral science (ethics and values) must be made a mandatory subject in all syllabi.

Gender equality must be emphasised by teachers.

Teachers and counsellors in schools to educate children on the need to speak up if sexually assaulted/teased inappropriately.

Punishments must be put in place for sexually inappropriate behaviour in schools with a view to discourage students from such behaviour from an early age.

Students to be encouraged to employ and enjoy clean humour while bantering with friends.

5. Treatment of Sexual assault victims on priority basis

Victims of sexual assault and acid attacks should be given top priority in medical treatment at government hospitals.

The initial cost of treatment up to Rs 1 lac should be borne by the concerned state government. Criminals accused of sexual assault should also be forced to furnish a monetary fine along with incurring a life sentence/ death penalty. Funds collected from wealthier criminals who can furnish such should be used to set up a rape victims’ welfare trust.

All victims should also be provided with free counselling and psychiatric assistance to not give in to despair and be able to get back to a happy and healthy life soon.

6. Basic infrastructure such as Public Toilets should be universally available

Public toilets, separate ones for men and women, must be provided in every village and at regular intervals in bigger towns and cities. This should be an immediate priority, along with electricity and water.

The Justice Seekers is a group of serving and retired professionals and several women’s NGO’s working together to improve women’s safety and gender equality in India.

Padma Shri Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal receives the IMA AMS Dr R.K. Menda Memorial Oration Award 2014


Recognizing outstanding contribution in the field of medical ethics, IMA AMS – the research and academic wing of the Indian Medical Association felicitated Dr. KK Aggarwal with the Dr. R.K. Menda Memorial Oration Award at their annual day function held at Hotel Hindustan International in Kolkata on Sunday. The subject of his oration was "How to respond to complaints of medical negligence".

Commenting on the oration, Dr. K.K. Aggarwal, Sr. National Vice President of the Indian Medical Association and the President of the Heart Care Foundation of India said, "The number of medical negligence cases we get at the Medical Council of India and the Delhi Medical Council are increasing by the year. With the increasing work pressure and competition, doctors often ignore some of the basic steps that they must take when dealing with any patient. It is extremely important that all doctors not just follow the line of treatment which has been decided in consultation with the patient or his family, but they must also document what they do and save that incase any dispute arises in the future. Following these three simple steps can help the doctor safeguard himself and his practice".

Delhi Gaurav Samman 2014


Employ your New Joiner


Everyday, or at least every week, organizations have new joiners coming on board who have gone through the recruitment process – from the lengthy to the bizarre. Generally the first day is spent knowing people, identifying work spaces, receiving hardware and settling other administrative and general queries.

It is imperative that one provides the new joiner quick and well directed joining process – and this is what most organizations do. But is this enough?

Well laid instructions, processes and procedures, be it in the form of handouts, organized interactions or one-to-one meetings can quickly make the new joiner feel comfortable and at home. This is what every organization should aspire to do. After all, it is only then that the employee can actually focus on what he was hired to do in the first place – WORK.

Good organizations interact with prospective employees even before their joining date to sort out their requirements and administrative hassles so that they are at peace of mind when they finally join on the given date. However, there is scope of doing more.

When an employee comes from a different organization or even if he is a fresher and this is his first job, he carries tremendous potential to add value to the organization. He has ideas not only regarding his domain knowledge but can also improve/change processes that have been written on stone and followed since ages in the new organization. But is there a system in place to accept, validate and implement these ideas? Most often than not, the answer is no!

This is where a good organization is different from the not so good ones.

They encourage people to share their ideas and concerns and acknowledge them for it. Then they sieve through them to separate the ones that are implementable and add value to the system and finally implement them for the benefit of all.

This not only optimizes the value add from new joiners but also acts as motivators for their employees, who feel accepted and get involved in the functioning of the organization.

The key to this is to tap and extract ideas from the new joiners immediately after they are boarded. Given time to settle down, they will imperatively go with the flow and accept processes and procedures of the organization instead of trying to change them. They will know who the top boss is and what are his pet projects and hence dare not disturb or disrupt them. After settling in, they will not have the time, energy or intent to challenge or change things that have already been written in stone.

Here is a check list to help organizations benefit from the new joiners immediately instead:

Interact: interact with candidates who have been offered a position even before they report to join. Try and find out any special requirements that they might have. Help them to settle in especially if they are relocating from a different geography.

Near to the joining date: get all administrative and hardware issues solved. It is a crime to hire someone and then waste the first two days of work because he does not know where he is supposed to sit or he does not have a laptop. This requires internal coordination between different departments because most of the time the IT and the administration people do not know who or how many will join on a given date. 

The joining day: in an ideal situation all new comers should be briefed in a group regarding the general rules and procedures of the office. What seems very logical and taken for granted for an existing employee may not be that simple to a new one. Remember the case of the employee quitting Microsoft who was too shy to ask for the rest room. It is a good idea to give the new joiners a tour of the facilities and introduce them to the key members of not only their team but also of central facilities and support services. This is also the time to cater to any requests that were made by them during their interaction in serial 1. 

The white board: earmark a person or a group if required to whom they may voice their concerns, ideas or suggestions without any threat of retribution. Ideally their immediate manager should not be part of this group.

Responsibilities of this group:
1.Encourage people to speak out and contribute ideas and then ensure that these reach the right people in the organization.
2. Create a repository of these ideas even if they are not implementable now, they might be in the future.
3. Once an idea is implemented, give acknowledgement to the individual who suggested it. Not necessarily monetary awards, even recognition can be a great motivator for a person who is new to the organization and is trying to get a foothold there.
4. Highlight and popularize this scheme, this will not only help you extract optimal benefit from new joiners but may also act as the differentiator when people have the option to choose to work for your organization or your competitor. 
In a hyper competitive environment, organizations that come up with new and innovative ways of employee engagement and can optimize contributions from employees by creating an environment that fosters trust and cohesiveness will have strategic and economic advantage to fuel their growth.

Sri Jagannath Rath Yatra



Annual Sri Jagannatha Rath Yatra in Puri 
God is actually able to ride on the Rathayäträ cart, and in His form as the Deity, bestow His blessings upon all. Who can deny God if He wishes to appear before us? Lord Jagannätha is Kåñëa Himself - He rides on, and the devotees feel pleasure at heart, and all persons factually receive His blessings on the occasion of Rathayäträ. 

Yoga means to link with God in loving exchange. Lord Kåñëa teaches in Bhagavad-gétä (6.47) that the highest yogé is “he who always abides in Me with great faith, worshiping Me in transcendental loving service.” The Rathayäträ Festival is a potent transcendental stimulus for developing love of Godhead. The Rathayäträ procession—the gigantic, opulently decorated Deity cars and thousands of people chanting Hare Kåñëa and dancing ecstatically—can attract even the materialistic person. By becoming attracted to the Supreme Lord in His form as Jagannätha one loses his attachment to the illusory happiness of the mundane world. Thus simply by seeing the Deities, simply by hearing the transcendental sound vibration of Hare Kåñëa, Hare Kåñëa, Kåñëa Kåñëa, Hare Hare/Hare Räma, Hare Räma, Räma Räma, Hare Hare, or simply by tasting foodstuffs offered to Kåñëa, anyone can begin his progress back to Godhead without difficulty. And by applying his energy in understanding the Kåñëa consciousness movement and participating in glorifying the all-blissful Lord of the universe, one can revive one’s eternal loving relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead. As stated - “Real religion is that which awakens unconditional, unmotivated love for the Lord from within our hearts. The love for God, which is dormant in the heart of all living beings, can be awakened by chanting of holy names of the lord.”

Externally, Rathayäträ is spectacular—colorful and entertaining. Yet the Gauòéya Vaiñëavas, the followers of Lord Caitanya, see in the Festival of the Chariots much more than just a happy event. The pulling of the cart by the Lord’s devotees symbolizes the attempt of the Vrajaväsés, especially Rädhäräëé and the gopés, to bring Kåñëa, Balaräma, and Subhadrä back to Våndävana. Today those who take part in a Ratha-yäträ festival can share in the feelings of Kåñëa's devotees who drew Him back to Våndävana with their love.

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada very simply explained the meaning of Ratha Yatra. He said that Ratha Yatra is the meditation on bringing Krishna back into our hearts. Krishna resides within the heart of all living beings, but we have forgotten Him. The real purpose of spiritual life is to make our heart a suitable home for God to reveal Himself to us. If we are inviting God to reveal himself in our hearts it must be clean. But if our hearts have accumulated the dirt of lust, envy, arrogance, greed, anger and illusion then He will not be happy to reveal His home within our heart. The purpose of every great spiritual path in this world is to help one another to honestly and sincerely clean our hearts, to cultivate the character of humility, charity, love for God and compassion to all beings.

The Deity of Lord Jagannatha 
King Indradyumna informed the sage of the episodes that took place. Narada Muni then informed the King that the form of Lord before him was authentic & actually Lord Krishna in a most merciful form.

That night, Jagannatha spoke to the king in a dream and reassured him, explaining that He was revealing Himself in that form out of His own inconceivable desire, to show the world that He can accept offerings without hands, and move around without feet. Lord Jagannatha told the king, "Know for sure that My hands and feet are the ornament of all ornaments, but for your satisfaction, you may give Me gold and silver hands and feet from time to time." Devotees now worship the same "unfinished" forms of Jagannatha, Baladeva, and Subhadra in Puri and in temples around the world. These forms are part of their eternal pastimes.

Narada Muni, during his conversation with King Indradyumna, explained to him about the origin of the strange form of Krishna as Jagannatha, which he had fortunately seen once before.

Monsoon and Dengue on the Door


Bed netting is of little use since the dengue mosquitoes are most active during the daytime said Padma Shri, Dr. B C Roy National Awardee & DST National Science Communication Awardee, Dr. K K Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India and Sr National Vice President Indian Medical Association.

Remaining in well–screened or air–conditioned buildings during the day can reduce the risk of exposure. When outside during the day, one should wear clothing that reduces the amount of exposed skin and use an effective mosquito repellent, such as N, N–diethyl–metatoluamide (DEET).

Because dramatic plasma leakage can develop suddenly, substantial attention has been placed upon the early identification of patients at higher risk for shock and other complications. The following clinical features are of help in this regard.

Duration of illness: The period of maximum risk for shock is between the third and seventh day of illness. This tends to coincide with resolution of fever. Plasma leakage generally first becomes evident between 24 hours before and 24 hours after fever is over.

Alarm signs: Severe abdominal pain, persistent vomiting, abrupt change from fever to hypothermia, or abnormal mental status, such as disorientation, are noted in a minority of patients.

Hematocrit: An elevation of the hematocrit is an indication that plasma leakage has already occurred and that fluid repletion is urgently required.

Platelet count: Severe trrombocytopenia ( < 100,000/ mm3) is one of the clinical criteria for the dengue hemorrhagic fever and usually precedes over plasma leakage.

Serum aspartate transaminase (SGOT): Mild elevations in serum transaminases are common in both dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever. However, levels are significantly higher in patients with dengue hemorrhagic fever, and elevated SGOT levels are noted earlier in illness.

Patients with suspected dengue who do not have any of the above indicators can be safely managed as outpatients as long as close clinical observation is assured. Daily outpatient visits may be needed to permit serial assessment of blood pressure, hematocrit, and platelet count.

A patient should be hospitalized when:
Blood pressure< 90/60 mmHg
Hematocrit> 50 %
Plarelet count < 50,000/ mmHg
Evidence of bleeding other than petechiae

Trekking & Adventure sports keeps you physically & mentally fit.


Recently, I have visited the most beautiful part of Himachal Pradesh i.e. Chamba District. Chamba valley is known for its scenic attractions, sparkling streams, lakes, meadows and luch deodar forests. Crowned with high mountain ranges, Its has rich in wildlife and animals like the elusive snow leopard, ibex, brown bear, and musk deer. Dalhousie is also very famous hill station of Chamba district.

It spread out over five hills like Kathlog, Potreys, Tehra, Bakrota & Balun. Its named after the 19th century British Governor General Lord Dalhousie. The town’s varying altitude Shades it with a variety of vegetation that includes stately grooves of pines, deodars, oaks and flowering rhododendrons. According to Father Pervez Egbert (Who is presently look after the church) St.John’s Church at Gandhi Chowk is the oldest church in Dalhousie established in 1863. Gandhi Chowk & Subhash Chowk are destination for the local transportation. Karenalu is the major & natural water source for entire Dalhousie & surrounding areas. Tourist Information Officer Mr. Surjeet Singh Thakur (who is with Himachal Tourism for the last 22 years) presently located at Dalhousie office says that May & June are best month but tourist come regularly and in December Tourist love to see the snowfall in the valley. Hotel Mani Mahesh & Geetanjli Hotel are quite famous in the town. Mr. Anil Mehta-Secretary of Dalhousie Club says that tourist love to visit this hill station throughout the year.

Dalhousie Public School, Sacred heart School, Guru Nanak public School & Hill Top School are quite famous schools of Dalhousie where local and other states children study.

The following are the major attractive spots of Dalhousie for the tourists:
Panjpulla-It is nearly 2 KM away from the town where a statue of freedom fighter/social activist Sardar Ajit Singh (Real uncle of Shaheed Bhagat Singh) is located. And a water fall & boating are the major attraction for the tourist.

Kalatop-It is 2440 meter above the sea level & around 8 KM away from the town and even has a good opportunity for the trekker to walk through the dense forest to reach Kalatope. According to Mr.Man Singh (who is caretaker of the Tourist Rest House at Kalatope) we have a provision for the stay here but it needs special permission from Chamba office to avail the facility. I also enjoyed the trek to Kalatope along with A grade officers of Education Department of Haryana Government.

Rock Garden-Himachal Tourism tried to develop a picnic spot here but presently its not properly maintained and the spot is being used as vehicle parking.

Khajjiar-It is really the most beautiful place of entire Himachal Pradesh. Its known as Mini Switzerland. It is 1960 meter above the sea level and only 22 KM away from Dalhousie by road.

A picturesque spot with an emerald saucer shaped meadow amidst a dense forest which even has a lake with floating island at its center & a golf course. According to Kishan Chand Rana Operator of Zorbing Rolling ball “ we charge Rs.300 for two person for single ride in the ball in the open ground surrounded by the beautiful trees. Horse riding is quite popular among the tourists in Khajjiar. It has almost 3KM radius around the spot.

How to reach Dalhousie
It is 555 KM away from Delhi by road. Pathankot is the Nearest Railway Station & Dalhousie is 85KM away by road.

I like to travel extensively whenever I found the opportunity, I am passionate about travelling, meeting Local people, culture and above all natural beauty of different parts of India. I personally several states of India yet I want to explore It meaningfully, because we Indian are lucky to have high mountains, deserts, beaches, lakes, rivers, Water falls, rich culture, historical/religious places.
I am proud of my great nation.

Well Beginning
When I was only years old, I went to Vaishno Devi along with my mom, daddy and two brothers. As per my knowledge that the first trek of my life from Katra to Main Temple of Goddess Vishno Devi.At that time there were no lights and steps (proper path) but only rough trek. Every body was totally depended upon mules & horses to reach the destination but I trekked that distance on my own feet. After that During school days I was actively played Cricket but trekking was my passion. I even joined many camps with Scouts & Guides in the hills and even during college days trekked several places of Himalayan regions.

I got married
In 1993 and since 1994, I again trekked several destination even along with my wife and two kids during summers. Even on 30th May,2002 my Son created a unique record while climbing Gaumukh (12,770 ft. high above the sea level) from Gangotri. It was 36 KM trek Apart from this unique record I always fond of trekking in the interior of entire Himalayan regions.
 With 1st Mount Everester
Ms. Bachendri Pal Singh

Once I even trekked with 1st Mount Everester Ms. Bachendri Pal Singh from Naugaon to Dodital, Uttarkashi, Uttarkhand I have been in touch with three times climber of Mt. Everest, Mr. Rajiv Sharma-Senior Instructor (Manali Mountaineering Institute) & Mt. Everester. I have very close friendship with Col. Ravinder Nath-(Former Director Indian Mountaineering Institute) & Col. Ashok Abbey(Former Principal of Nehru Institute of Mountaineering, Uttarkashi, Uttarkhand). Col. Ashok even invited me to cover Asia Cup Of Wall Climbing competition in which more than 12 countries participated and it was a wonderful event particularly for the Mountain lovers.

Engagement with Mountaineering Clubs
I have been voluntarily associated with Indian Mountaineering Foundation(International body of Mountaineers), Climber & Explorer Club, Mystically Journey, Kailash Mansarover Sewa Samiti(R) National Adventure Sports Academy(NASA).

What to carry while going for a trekking
Tshirt, Trek suit, lower, Umbrella, Torch, Mat, Water Bottle, Goggle, Cap, Camera, Mobile and of course some packed edibles also. Never carry heavy luggage otherwise you will not enjoy the trip.

Explore the destination
Before going to any trekking you should explore the destination and find the climatic condition of that particulars spot. Try to collect useful information from particular Tourism Department and even local people.

Trekking hour
When you are on a trekking you should preferably trek early in the morning but reach the desired camp before sunset. Never move fast or run to reach speedly because it makes you tired and unable to travel the long distance comfortably. As far as the distance of a day is concerned, you can trek 8-10 KM a day , even a normal trekker can do it easily.

Local People
Always try to mix up yourself with the local people by way of passing smile or even you can gather local information with them. Because they are the most Useful Source of information of that particular area. Be curious, humble & friendly with them they will provide you each & every possible information/help.

Wild Life
Monkey, deer, snake, dogs, bears, langoors, vultures, eagle are quite common with whom you may face them suddenly. So, never hurt or challenge them because they never attack you so be carefully with them but never try to beat or attack them otherwise they can harm you. Moreover, you should never move alone during trekking always move in the group from safety point of view.

Advantages of Trekking & Adventure Sports:
I think trekking & Adventure sports should be made compulsory in school and college curriculum. Because weekly trekking trip once a year makes the Students active, stout & sound health. It also brings self confidence, team building spirit, increase will power and even physical strength in the body.

CHILD SLAVERY FOCUS OF DOCUMENTARY ON DD


Not My Life, widely acclaimed film on global tragedy by Oscar nominee
Robert Bilheimer airs on DD National, June 29 2014, 9:30 PM
Producers: Mike Pandey and Robert Bilheimer
A child disappears in India every eight minutes


Prembabu Sharma

“Indian children go missing in India every eight minutes,” says Kailash Satyarthi, one of the prominent human rights activists interviewed for Oscar nominee Robert Bilheimer's Not My Life, the first film to depict the harsh realities of human trafficking on a global scale.

K B Kachru (Chairman South Asia, Carlson Rezidor)

 "These children don't just disappear into thin air," asserts Satyarthi. "They become slaves. They work in factories and in brothels, in agriculture and in stone quarries, they make bindis and cigarettes, and they number in the millions." "We are in denial about the reality of child slavery and human trafficking not only in India, but around the world."

Not My Life, the award-winning film in which Satyarthi appears, has been hailed by critics as a "seminal work" and a "masterpiece". The 56-minute documentary puts a sharp lens on the multiple forms of child exploitation and human trafficking that exist in almost every country in the world today.

Filmed on five continents, in a dozen countries, over a period of more than four years, Not My Life has been been specially edited for broadcast and distribution in India, and is a eo-production of Worldwide Documentaries, and Riverbank Studios in Delhi.

The documentary, translated into Hindi, airs on DD June 29th, in its "featured film" 9:30 - 10:30 pm time slot. The telecast is co-sponsored by Carlson and the Carlson Family Foundation. Carlson, a global travel and hospitality company is proud to be an industry leader in the prevention of human trafficking. It is a signatory to the ECP AT (End Child Prostitution, Pornography and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes) Code of Conduct and the UN Global Compact, furthering its commitment to human rights and Responsible Business. Carlson is also a founding member of the Global Business Coalition Against Human Trafficking.

"This project was, and is, a labor of love", Bilheimer says. "We kept asking, who will speak for those who cannot speak for themselves? In the end we felt that making Not My Life was not only our job, but our mission, because far too much silence still surrounds this issue."

"Carlson and the Carlson Family Foundation are proud to be part of the global fight against human trafficking, a cause that is one of modem society's most widespread human rights violation. We have been championing and supporting this cause for the last 10 years as part of our efforts to be a responsible business in the global communities that we operate in. As a leader in the hospitality and travel industry in India, we are in a unique position to influence and effect change. We urge more businesses to join us in intensifying efforts to fight against human trafficking," said K.B. Kachru, Chairman, South Asia, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group.

"From DD's point of view, the June 29 broadcast is an opportunity to bring the national and international tragedy of human trafficking and modern slavery to the attention of our huge audience. For those who watch—and we hope millions do—Not My Life is both an eye-opener and a profoundly moving call to action. We here at DD are proud to be the launching pad for what we all hope will be a sustained awareness effort throughout our country in the years to come." Tripurari Sharan, Doordarshan's Director General.

Plans are already underway for a re-broadcast of Not My Life on DD in November, along with an Indian premiere of Not My Life in New Delhi, and the announcement of a three-year community-based awareness campaign designed to radically alter how Indians from all walks of life understand, and respond to, human trafficking and modem slavery crimes.

India is widely recognized as having the world's largest number of trafficking and slavery victims, many of whom are children. Exploitation and slavery in India includes sex trafficking, and multiple forms of slave labor. Victims of these practices are conservatively estimated to number more than 10 million.

India is by no means alone, however, as a country where children, women, and men are trafficked within, or across, a nation's borders. Human trafficking is emerging as one of the cruellest and most widespread human rights violations of modem times. It is also big business, with billion-dollar annual profits rivalling profits reaped by criminals who deal in arms 'and narcotics.

Bina Rani, CEO of iPartner India, one of the NOOs spearheading the nationwide awareness campaign being launched with the DD telecast of Not My Life, notes that Indians need to be able to understand trafficking and slavery in both national and international contexts. "One of the many compelling features of Not My Life for Indians is that it does not shy away from the problem we have here, but it also helps us understand that we are not alone in this. Trafficking and slavery are human problems, really, not just Indian problems."

Mike Pandey, whose Riverbank Studios produces the popular environmental series "Earth Matters" for DD, and is a producer of Not My Life / India, emphasises the urgent need for a nationwide collective effort at all levels if we want slavery to end. This alone will ensure a secure future for our children and a life without fear".  Director Robert Bilheimer agrees.

"There's a wonderful statement at the end of Not My Life by Kailash Satyarthi," Bilheimer says. "And what Kailash tells us is that if we rediscover, and reanimate, that profound sense of moksha and mukti embedded in Indian culture-- that sense of liberation and release-- then we can indeed create a tsunami and turn this issue around. We have a big vision here, but it's doable, I believe, and that's why we are all so excited about Not My Life on DD at the end of this month."

Heartiest Congratulations and kudos to all the Class X students - JM International School


Congratulations for yet another consecutive year of stupendous CBSE results at JMIS that’s amazing! 

Ms ANURADHA GOVIND
Principal
JM INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL

It is the celebration time for the entire JMIS-community which includes students, teachers and parents…..all. For us, the purpose of education is to build up the children in a holistic manner, so that they acquire an all round personality, developed in all aspects – mind, body, heart and will – power. We have been trying to develop the potential of our students along this vision. This time our CBSE results like the past years have been the best in league. The achievements made by our students have been amazing. About 28% of students got highest CGPA 10, 34% got CGPA 9-10, 12% got CGPA 8-9 and remaining got 7-8 CGPA. Kanica Goel, Nikhil Mishra, Divya Patniak, Gagan Gupta, Devangi Jain, Ashutosh Shukla, Simran and Vignesh Sivan have made their alma – mater proud with their academic excellence.


One would really want to know ‘The Real Life Learning’ JMIS talks about. It is a very different kind of approach!
We are setting children up for their future and we think that the learning should be for the life, not for the marks alone. The surge should be for overall excellence, not for mere numbers and grades. Our school is known for our approach and work around ‘Real life learning’. We believe that students need to see the connections across the curriculum through meaningful and purposeful learning experiences. Having drawn on their past we prepare them for the future in a global world. Through our innovative teaching methods, interactive sessions, audio-visual modules, workshops, seminars, counseling, hand-on-activities, emphasis on life-long learning, we engage our students in quality learning journeys and give them opportunities to use their deeper understanding and knowledge to ‘be the difference’ in their lives and lives of others.

What kind of specialized teaching-learning brings out such academic excellence in children.
As far as the specialized teaching-learning at JMIS is concerned, I would say it comes from the Specialized Facilitators, content, teaching methodology and the motivated Learners. Skilled facilitators are the pillars of our institutions. School invests a lot in selecting developing and empowering these facilitators. The training programmes, workshops, seminars and conferences in school and outside are one of the integral features which result into such a strong foundation to out teaching-learning programme. We have been further enriching the teaching-learning process for our teachers and students through the regular guest lectures by a panel of subject

Experts, motivational talks and ‘inspire – time’. We also give opportunity to our children to share their views in the ‘open-house’ and ‘circle time’. These are some of the most dynamic features of our progressive curriculum.

What should be the direction for school students in 21st Century
Our school direction is heavily influenced by JMIS vision of seeing young people creative, energetic and enterprising. Bringing to them new knowledge and technologies to secure a sustainable social, cultural, economic and environmental future for our country – students who are confident, connected and actively involved in lifelong learning.

What should be the most important aspect of Academic learning
It is the concept, ability to think, analyze and apply the concepts and most importantly the ability to connect the concept with real life situations. JMIS specially trains and encourages its facilitators to particularly tap this most important aspect of Academic learning.

Can ‘academic excellence’ alone ensure the success in life
Academic excellence is a vital part but the success comes through the proper development of all the faculties. In fact, ‘emotional quotient is far more important than intelligence quotient’ to succeed in ‘real’ life. In consonance with this vision, JMIS – curriculum lays a lot of emphasis on EHV (Education in human values) and life-skills. It is a path breaking programme which has several innovative learning experiences for children as school-cinema, daily meditation, open-house, motivational good morning… to name a few.

What are the core values which you aim to develop in children
As a crux of several enabling values for life, the core values which we would want to bring in our students are – Bravery to have the mind set of exploration and discovery, Resilience to push through, Responsibility to see, own and act & Fun to enjoy the journey.

How will you sum-up the JMIS-Shikshantaram
‘Shikshantaram’ means ‘Be the difference’ and that is our curricular mission. We see our students and staff strong and assured in their purpose, having a voice of influence knowing the can make a ‘difference’. We see a school that is recognized widely for its authenticity, students ownership and future oriented approaches.

We see a school that places high stake on individuality, excellence and creativity. Above all, we see a school that is bold in its conviction to challenge the redundant conventional approach to education, placing high the value of innovation in ‘real life contexts’ ...… a pioneering spirit of discovery.

Sri VIS Continues Its Global Journey


Shama Kapoor, Headmistress and Reena Kalra, International Coordinator, from Sri Venkateshwar International School, Sector - 18, Dwarka visited their partner school Cynwyd Sant in Wales, UK as part of an ongoing British Council Connecting Classroom Partnership.

The visit led to greater exchange of ideas and technologies; thereby expanding the horizons of learning for both the schools. The partnership has become more meaningful as it involves the local community in Dwarka and Maesteg, Wales, UK as well.

The Indian teachers shared the literary richness of the Ramayana, poetry writing, numeracy games, art work and the river Ganges and Thames project. They brought back learning of creative crafts and teaching aids to enhance learning.  It is rightly said, “Whatever we possess doubles its value; when we have the opportunity of sharing it with others.”

Consolidation of various cards & numbers


श्री नरेंद्र मोदी प्रधानमंत्री,               No. SKG/PMO/007             24 Jun 2014
5 Race Course Road,
New Delhi-110003.

Sub: Consolidation of various cards & numbers. Concerned Ministry: Home

Sir,

We are passing thru a time when many data bases are being consolidated and/or put in de-materialized form. Like insurance policies, share certificates, KYC etc. One of the areas where this exercise required is also the various cards & ID proof one has to manage. Safe keeping of all these cards individual and maintenance of separate data abases by different Govt. agencies is a not only leading to inefficiency but also having a huge cost involved in it. When UID was launched it was meant to function as multi utility card for various purposes. However, it is observed that so many other types of cards & numbers for individuals still continue to be in vogue and have the potential to be replaced with a single UID to create a strong all India data base e.g.

a) Election I card,
b) Driving License,
c) Below Poverty Card,
d) Smart Card – National Health Scheme
e) Permanent Account Number,
f) PPF/PF No.
g) Gas connection number,
h) Tax Identification Number,
i) Pensioner Card
j) Passport Number
k) Bank Account Number
l) Debit Card Number


Issue of separate cards by several agencies is not only leading to duplication of work but also allowing suspicions persons to maintain multiple identities. For example the driving license issuing authority can easily be aligned with the job of issuing UID cards having a mention that person is authorized to drive the vehicle, thereby obviating the need for issuing a separate UID card by National UID Authority. Similarly many other departments can also align their activities like this. In times to come the even PAN of individuals may be replaced with UID, thereby saving the public from hassles of obtaining it. The UID must be necessarily mentioned on all the certificates & mark sheets issued by school & boards.

Conceptually & technically it is very much feasible that all the Govt authorities access one data bank and avoid issuing multiple cards. This will not only greatly facilitate handling of one single cards by an individual but also would have a significant impact on costs associated with issuing the UID. This will also help spreading the UID to public speedily.

With addition of each information there should be a provision to print updated version of UID by the relevant department.

This consolidation can greatly help in controlling tax evasion & also help in security issues.

The live example of such single data bank is the D-Mat account for buying & selling the securities, the companies all over India access to a unique data-bank of d-mat account for contacting the account holder be it dividend distribution or report sending or any other thing. The account holder only has to update the change at one place and all companies can have online access to updated record.

Likewise, any department updating the information about any individual will be doing it at the central data bank and all the other user departments can have access to latest updated record.

To spread it speedily quoting UID must be made mandatory for any transaction with Govt Department like:
i) Registration under NAREGA,
ii) Transfer of vehicle,
iii) Property Registration new & old,
iv) Issue of birth certificate,
v) Enrollment with school/college,
vi) Issue of insurance policy,
vii) Purchase of new vehicle,
viii) Application for any public sector job,
ix) Dealing with any tax department,
x) Apply for water, electricity, gas & telephone connection,
xi) Issue of pensioner card,
xii) Opening of bank account,


Request that consolidation of various types of cards be done for greater system efficiency, convenience and control in long run.

वेद के आधार पर सूर्य के प्रकाश की गति की गणना

नवीन कुमार 

वेद संसार के अद्भुत ज्ञान का भंडार है । सभी विद्याओं का मूल वेदों में विद्दमान  है । वेदों के प्राचीन भाष्यकार महर्षि सायणाचार्य ने कहा है कि वेद वे प्राचीन ग्रन्थ हैं जिनमें इच्छित पदार्थो की प्राप्ति और अनिष्टकारी संभावनाओं से सुरक्षित रहने के दिव्य उपाय बताये गये हैं - जैसे इस भौतिक जगत को देखने के लिए नेत्रों की आवश्यकता होती है, उसी प्रकार दिव्य तत्वों को जानने तथा समझने के लिए वेदरूपी नेत्रों की आवश्यकता होती है । अतः वेद दिव्य तथा अलौकिक तत्वों को लौकिक रूप से लाभदायी बनाने की सेतु है । परंतु इससे पहले उस अलौकिक तत्वों को जानने तथा समझने की अति आवश्यकता है । समय-2 पर भारतीय मनीषियों ने अलौकिक तत्वों के सरलीकरण की प्रक्रिया को जारी रखा । इसी सन्दर्भ में वेदव्यास जी का प्रयास सराहनीय है । आरम्भ में वेद एक ही था परंतु बाद में श्रीकृष्ण द्वैपायन महामुनि व्यास जी ने वेद को चार भागों में विभाजित किया - ऋृग्वेद, सामवेद, यजुर्वेद एवं अथर्ववेद । इसमें ऋृग्वेद प्राचीनतम है । आज वेद के ज्ञान को समझने तथा उसे मानवोपयोगी बनाने की जरूरत है । आधुनिक काल में प्रकाश की गति की गणना जेम्स क्लर्क मैक्सवेल (James Clerk Maxwell) ने 19वी शताब्दी में की थी परंतु महर्षि सायण, जो वेदों के महान भाष्यकार थे, ने 14वीं शताब्दी में ही प्रकाश की गति की गणना ऋृग्वेद के आधार पर कर डाली थी । यथा -

‘तरणिर्विश्वदर्शतो ज्योतिष्कृदसि सूर्य ।
विश्वमा भासि रोचनम् ।।’            
                       ।।ऋृग्वेद 1.50.4।।
अर्थात् हे सूर्य ! तुम तीव्रगामी एवं सर्वसुन्दर तथा प्रकाश के दाता और जगत् को प्रकाशित करने वाले हो । इसी पर भाष्य करते हुए महर्षि सायण ने लिखा है -

‘तथा च स्मर्यते योजनानां सहस्त्रं द्वे द्वे शते-द्वे च योजने एकेन निमिषार्धेन क्रममाण नमोऽस्तुते ।।’
।। सायण ऋृग्वेद भाष्य 1.50.4 ।।

अर्थात् आधे निमेष में 2202 योजन का मार्गक्रमण करने वाले प्रकाश तुम्हें नमस्कार है । 

कई विद्द्वानों ने इसके बारे में यह बताया है कि यहा पर सूर्य के प्रकाश की गति की नहीं बल्कि सूर्य की गति की बात कही गयी है । परंतु इस संदर्भ में यह बात स्पष्ट है कि महर्षि सायणाचार्य जो कि वेद के भाष्यकार थे तथा गणित के भी विद्वान थे, अपने पूर्ववर्ती विद्वानों आर्यभट्ट, वाराहमिहिर इत्यादि के सिद्धातों से तो अवगत होंगे ही जिनमें सूर्य को हमारे सौरमंडल के संदर्भ में स्थिर ही माना गया है । अतः सूर्य की गति की जगह सूर्य के प्रकाश की गति के सन्दर्भ में ही सायणाचार्य के उपर्युक्त सिद्धांत है । 

उपर्युक्त सिद्धान्त के आधार पर सूर्य के प्रकाश की गति निकालने से पहले हमें निमेश तथा योजन के बारे में जानने की आवष्यकता है ।

निमेश की गणना -
महाभारत के शांतिपर्व के आधार पर
15 निमेष = 1 काष्ठा
30 काष्ठा = 1 कला
30.3 कला = 1 मूहुर्त
30 मूहुर्त = 1 अहोरात्र
1 अहोरात्र = 1 दिन-रात
1 दिन-रात = 24 घंटे


अतः 24 घंटा = 30x30.3x30x15 निमेश = 24x60x60 सेकेण्ड

अर्थात् 409050 निमेश =86,400 सेकेण्ड

अतः 1/2 निमेश = 0.1056 सेकेण्ड               - अ

योजन की गणना -
जहां तक दूरी का सवाल है तो हमारे पुराणों में योजन को एक प्रामाणिक इकाई माना गया है । इसकी गणना इस प्रकार होती है -

4 हस्त = 1 धनु
2000 धनु = 1 गवयुति (वह दूरी जहां तक एक सामान्य भारतीय गौ की ध्वनि सुनाई देती है)
4 गवयुति = 1 योजन
1 योजन = 4 ग12000 फीट त्र 48,000 फीट
48,000 फीट = 9.09 मील

अर्थात् 1 योजन = 9.09 मील                            - आ

महर्षि सायण ने जो सूत्र दिया अर्थात् सूर्य का प्रकाश 1/2 निमेश में 2202 योजन चलता है - इसे उन्होंने कैसे निकाला है इसकी जानकारी हमें नही है । परंतु इसके आधार पर सूर्य के प्रकाश की गति इस प्रकार है -

प्रकाश की गति = 2202 योजन प्रति 1/2 निमेश
= 2202 योजन प्रति 0.1056 सेकेण्ड                 - समीकरण ‘अ’ से
= 2202x9.09 मील प्रति 0.1056 सेकेण्ड                -समीकरण ‘आ’ से
= 189547.15909 मील प्रति सेकेण्ड 

अर्थात् ऋृग्वेद के आधार पर सूर्य के प्रकाश की गति = 1,89,547 मील प्रति सेकेण्ड परन्तु आधुनिक विज्ञान के आधार पर सूर्य के प्रकाश की गति =1,86,000 मील प्रति सेकेण्ड है । इस संदर्भ में हम भारतवासी का पुनीत कर्तव्य हो जाता है कि वेद के ज्ञान का विस्तार हो तथा इसके लिए भारत सरकार को वेद, वेदांग (उपनिषद) पुराण इत्यादि शास्त्रों के विद्वानों की समितियाँ बनानी चाहिए जिससे इनमें स्थित अलौकिक ज्ञान को मानवोपयोगी बनाने की प्रक्रिया शुरू हो । भारतीय गणित, ज्योतिश, स्वरशास्त्र, संगीत, राजनीति, समाजशास्त्र, विज्ञान, औषधि, वैमानिकी, युद्धशास्त्र, वनस्पति शास्त्र, योगशास्त्र, सौन्दर्यशास्त्र, वास्तुशास्त्र इत्यादि की बारीकियों को उजागर कर उसे तुरंत कॉपीराइट करायें जिससे वे मानवोपयोगी सिद्ध हो तथा हमारे भारतीय मनीशियों को विश्व मंच पर यथायोग्य सम्मान मिल सके । हम 1200 वर्षों तक गुलाम रहे परंतु आज तो हम आजाद हैं । अतः आज हमारी विशेष जिम्मेदारी हो जाती है कि हम अपने पुरातन खोजों को सबके सामने लायें जिससे हम सभी विश्ववासी लाभान्वित हो सकें । हमारा विश्व परिवार सुख, शांति, एवं समृद्धि को प्राप्त हो । सर्वेभवन्तु सुखिनः, सर्वे सन्तु निरामयाः, सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु मा कश्चित्दुःख भाग्भवेत । अर्थात् सभी प्राणी (मनुष्य एवं मनुष्येतर) सुखी हो, स्वस्थ्य हों, सभी हरेक को कल्याणमयी दृश्टि से देखें, इन दिव्य भावों के अलौकिक आलोक से सारा जग आप्लावित हो जाये ।

2nd Dwarka Toppers Award-2104 in City PLus


THE GROUND REALITY OF THE SYSTEMS OF GOVERNANCE THAT ARE THERE IN INDIA -- A BRIEF BUT SURE ATTEMPT.

Rajendra Dhar
POLICE WATCH INDIA (Regd. NGO).

Everywhere people in India keep cribbing at all levels that the various systems that constitute Governance are either in shambles or are crumbling whether it be the Criminal Justice System, the Economic System, the Education System, the Political System, the Parliamentary System or for that matter any other System. The tragedy is that the only sufferer is the "Aam Aadmi" & none else.

To analyse & arrive at the truth that is we will have to first understand the basics.

ANY SYSTEM IS:-
A set of detailed methods, procedures, and routines established or formulated to carry out a specific activity, perform a duty, or solve a problem.

An organized, purposeful structure, regarded as a whole and, consisting of inter-related and inter-dependent elements (components, entities, factors, members, parts etc). These elements continually influence one another (directly or indirectly) to maintain their activity and the existence of the system, in order to achieve the goal of the system.

All systems have
(a) Inputs, outputs, and feedback mechanisms,
(b) Maintain an internal steady-state (called homeostasis) despite a changing external environment,
(c) Display properties that are peculiar to the whole (called emergent properties) but are not possessed by any of the individual elements, and
(d) Have boundaries that are usually defined by the system observer.

Systems underlie every phenomenon, and are everywhere one looks for them. They are limited only by the observer’s capacity to comprehend the complexity of the observed entity, item or phenomenon. Every system is a part of a larger system, is composed of sub-systems, and shares common properties with other systems that help in transferring understanding and solutions from one system to another. Systems obey rules that cannot be understood by breaking them into parts, and stop functioning (or malfunction) when an element is removed or altered significantly. Together, they provide a coherent and unified way of viewing and interpreting the universe as a meta-system of interlinked wholes, and of organizing our thoughts about the world.

Although different types of systems (from a cell to the human body, soap bubbles to galaxies, ant colonies to nations) look so very different on the surface, they have remarkable similarities. At the most basic level, the systems are divided into two categories: (1) Closed systems: theoretical constructs that have solid boundaries and where only the components within the system are assumed to exist in a self-sufficient state. All other influences or variables from outside the system are considered to be non-existent or insignificant for the purpose of the system analysis. (2) Open systems: the real-world systems that have permeable boundaries through which they continually exchange energy, material, and information with their external environment the larger system in which they exist. Different systems methodologies (such as systems dynamics and systems thinking) classify systems differently.

The effective operation and sustainable development of the social system benefit from the coordination ability of social management. In fact, to manage is to coordinate. It is a human-centered process operated for the desired goal of social organization. However, because of the University of Coordination, coordination becomes the core element in the management across all functions. As the social coordination involves many factors, such as technology, institution, information even ethics, moral and so on, administrators who incorporate these influencing factors into an integral whole, have natural connections with coordination and it is more due to the demands of reality and the course of history, rising from the inherent mechanism of coordination to building harmonious society and harmonious world, we can see that the responsibilities of administrators are particularly important, very profound and far-reaching.

THE FACT IS THAT NO SYSTEM OF ITS OWN MALFUNCTIONS BUT THE BITTER TRUTH IS THAT SYSTEMS ARE DELIBERATELY MADE TO MALFUNCTION BY THOSE WHO ARE PART & PARCEL OF THESE SYSTEMS OR OVERSEE THESE SYSTEMS i.e. THE POLITICIANS.

THE QUESTION THAT REMAINS IS WHY THEY DO SO?
The Answer Is Not That Very Simple & Obvious. Corruption On The One Hand & Vested Interests Of The Capitalists & The Politicians On The Other Hand Are The Root Causes.

However There Are Some Who As Part & Parcel Of These Systems On Condition Of Anonymity Say That There Are Administrative, Political As Well As Other Compulsions Which Force Them To Deliberately Put These Systems Into Disarray (The Reasons That Are There Will Be Brought Out At A Later Point Of Time).

However it has been observed over a period of time idiosyncratic & impulsive decisions taken by the politicians in power boomerang on the society and the nation leading to various kinds & types of devastation.

It is high time that all of us should join hands to stem the rot that is eating into all the systems of governance and we have to move fast before impending ominous anarchical tendencies take root for good.

Thanks for your VISITs
