THE CHADDI BUDDY

The word chaddi buddy sounds kind of “bachpan vala jigri yaar”. We all have at least one chaddi buddy in our life who is a part of us since our childhood. We have the best of memories with these kinds of friends. Most annoying thing we face is “BACHPAN KI BAATE SABKE SAMNE BOLKAR EMBARASS KARNA”.

THE 2 BAJE KI PHONE CALL VALA DOST

All of us must have at least one friend in our life whom we can call even at 2 in the night and can discuss any “CHOTI BADI MUSIIIBAT”. These kinds of friends are kinda mood lightener. Funniest thing about having a friend like them is that they are used to our stupidities and have a permanant solution to every problem.

THE TU MERA BHAI HAI ONE

These friends don’t give us feeling of being friends, they give us a brotherly feeling. We can say that if one doesn’t have a bhai wala friend he is truly lacking in best of memories. These types of friends are like “HATH TO LAGAE MERE BHAI KO KOI SABKO DEKHLENGE”.

YE DOSTI HUM NAHI TODENGE TYPES

Well jai veeru are  role models of true friendship. We must have a friend like jai veeru in our life, without whom we can’t imagine a single moment! These friends are sugar to our cup of tea, support system and motivation in our lives! For once we can forget our date of birth but we cannot forget these types of friends in our life.

THE KAM KI JAGA KAAND KARNE VALA DOST

Of course if we have not come across these types of friends in life then we have not enjoyed our life yet. They can’t leave a single moment of  troubling us “kyunki vo to help karne jaate hai par destruction apne aap hojata hai”. They cannot resist themselves from telling our parents things which we even can’t imagine to tell!” AUNTY HAR HAFTE 3 LECTURES BUNK KARTA HAI YE COLLEGE KE” cheers to these kinds of friends!

THE CHEAP BATE KARNE VALA DOST

One can only be open to these kinds of friends truly because they are not friends they are a bundle of emotion. We can even enjoy the cheap baatein with these friends whether they be cheap songs, cheap movies, thrilling activities and “peena pilana” having a friend like them in life gives a feeling like  “KYUNKI TU DHADKAN MAI DIL”. Because we don’t need to express what kind of TROUBLE we are thinking they can figure it out themselves and can have a “GET SET GO ATTITUDE”.

THE MOTIVATOR

These friends are truly a blessing or a gem we can say! No one can give the perfect solution like them. They are truly motivators “kyunki in dosto ke bina life ki equation balance nahi ho sakti” for once we can doubt on our parent’s advice but ye wale dosto ki advice “AANKH BAND KARKE MAN LENI CHAHIYE”. They can never give us wrong suggestion and there is no doubt in that.

The patriotic troopers of the Indian Army and para military forcers guarding our porous borders and courageously fighting the Pakistan sponsered terrorists to ensure the safety and security of our citizens deserve to be complimented by all means. During the last four years while these valiant patriotic fighters in uniform has while putting their precious lives to immense risk have killed over 275 militants in Jammu and Kashmir several of them have sacrificed their lives for the nation’s unityand integrity fighting these terrorists at the Indo Pak border and in strife torn Kashmir Valley.

Uttarakhand is one such state of such valiant soldiers who’d sacrificed their precious lives on the line of duty safeguarding our borders and bravely fighting these Pak sponsered terrorists. A bad news has arrived just yesterday when a young soldier of Rashtriya Rifles namely Deepak Nainwal succumbed to his injuries after being under treatment for 42 days since 10th April, 2018 at the Research and Rrferral Hospital of Indian Army in Delhi Cantt. New Delhi. Son of a retired honorary captain of Indian Army Shri Chakradhar Nainwal Deepak primarily hailed from Kanchuli village of Karnaprayag block under district Chamoli, Garhwal.

Dedicatedly carrying forward his father's legacy ! Rakesh Bharadwaj, a mestro of rhythm music

Chandra Singh Rahi is one of the most popular singing legends of Uttarakhand adored and remembered fondly by one and all, all over Uttarakhand globally. Though, not within us, Rahiji is an institution of Uttarakhand folk and old traditional singing, having accorded it new heights during his lifetime. His peculiar songs possessing the unique blend of indepth pahari culture and language are still adored and loved by his millions n millions of fans nationally.

Having dedicated and devoted his entire life to vastly promote and preserve the Uttarakhandi culture of Garhwal and Kumaon through his melodious singing and mesmerising music, late Chandra Singh Garhwali is a name afresh in every Uttarakhandi’s mind and heart most reverentially even today n will continue to be in future as well.

Taking cue from his father, his capable son Rakesh Bharadwaj, a maestro in rythem music, has now dedicated his entire life to further promote ahead his father’s enriched legacy but in a different form.

A perfect singer and a musician of repute being well versed in playing every musical instrument with tremendousamont of dexterity , keeping in view the changing times and coping with the interests and preferences of the new generation Rakesh has tried to redevelop his late father’s legacy of popular songs in different tunes to suit the present generation though not disturbing the actual lyrics and their meanings there of.

His latest band with orchestra mixes his father’s old popular songs to give them a new interesting blend best suiting to the music intetest of the current young generation inviting tremendous applauds and appreciation. Till now Rakesh Bharadwaj has under fusion held hundreds of shows all over India including foreign countries amongst the Uttarakhandies inviting tremendous applauds n bringing laurels to the family and the music fraternity. Let’s have a look at a newpost . live post on talented Rakesh:

Year 1999. Dr. Palash Sen’s Euphoria comes out with ‘Mayari’ a song which instantly tops music charts across the country and around the same time, making his debut in the Euphoria band was a young lad from Pauri, Garhwal called Rakesh Bhardwaj.

18 years since then, Rakesh Bhardwaj a maestro in rhythm instruments including those from Garhwal and its folk songs, hasnt looked back. Initiated into the world of fusion music Rakesh was born into the family of legendary Garhwali singer Chander Singh Rahi, the first Garhwali to sing at the All India Radio Station, so it doesn’t come as surprise when Rakesh tells us, ‘Music, was my first love, I started playing musical instruments at a young age and would hear my father sing. Then at 13, I started my formal education at the Gandharwa Mahavidyalay, learning tabla from Ustad Faiyaz Khan guru and at present I am a disciple of Taal Yogi Pt. Suresh Talwarkar ji.’

In the year 2014, the famous percussionist conceptualised, ‘Pahadi soul,’ a company dedicated to revive and renew old, authentic pahari songs giving it a fresh tinge. ‘I always wanted to do something worthwhile for my hill-state, give it that recognition, it truly deserves, specially in the field of music.’

He bravely chose ‘Bedo Paako’ as his first choice of song to reinvent. The song considered as the anthem for Garhwalis all over the world became an instant hit. Since, then Rakesh has painstakingly reinvented music videos, some based on his father’s early songs such as ‘saat samundar paar,’ ‘apni thati tay‘, ‘Gado Guloband,’ and more recently followed by ‘Kukdi.‘

‘I am not in it for the money,’ he tells us. ‘It is about my passion for our culture, tradition and more so our music that keeps me going. Music is a wind that blows away years and distance within minutes. I want to revive forgotten, soulful songs from our magic mountains without loosing their authenticity.’

Rakesh states that he will not stop reinventing regional songs until he comes across a young lad or girl playing pahadi songs on his/her mobile instead of a Punjabi song.

Definitely our man, is on a mission and he is not going to miss a beat, until it is achieved.

CHIPKO LEGEND GAURA DEVI BEING REMEMBERED TODAY ON ITS 45TH ANNIVERSARY

Published

on

Today is the 45th anniversary of Chipko movement and is celebrated primarily by the environmentalists and those seriously concerned about the degrading environment of the Himalayas and the country. This was the first ever eco feminist movement against the rampant felling of trees in Garhwal Himalayas and in India. In the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand this historic day holds tremendous relevance as the chief founder of this movement called Chipko Andolan a committed woman activist Gaura Devi alongwith her fellow women activists started this movement today in 1973 by embracing the trees thus discouraging the then prevalent contractors and forest mafia from incessant cutting of trees in the jungles of Garhwal, Uttarakhand.

There slogan was first axe us then the fully grown gre trees. Chipko movement thereafter gained global significance and sent acrose the country and the world a positive message against widescale deforestation. The movement was inspired and backed by eminent environmentalists and recipient of several national and international coveted awards and recognitions viz Chandi Prasad Bhatt and Sunder Lal Bahuguna. Chipko leader Gaura Devi was a great woman of commitment, dedication and devotion who protected the forests from axing of trees in the Garhwal Himalayas alongwith her several women colleagues about 40 years ago from now.

The movement gained such a widespread momentum and impacted the government that in 1980 the then prime minister of India issued directives to ban felling and cutting of trees in the Uttarakhand Himalayas for 15 long years followed by credible forest act. The movement later on spread in other parts of the country like Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, entire Vindhyachal, West Bengal and around the globe. Gaura Devi was, though after a long spell but felicitated with prestigious Rajiv Gandhi Award for environment protection by the Government of India including international honours.

Today if there is awareness around the country and the globe against felling of trees and subsequent protection and preservation of forests and environment its only because of this great legend Gaura Devi and her handful of co women activists. My salutes to this great woman achiever on CHIPKO DAY with the appeal to one and all to safeguard the forests and trees of the entire Himalayan belt and the country which are our actual lungs and oxygen givers.

According to the veteran social reformer and activist Ramesh Pahari the Chipko movement was primarily the result and outcome against the incessant felling of trees and for the protection of the rights of the local villagers to safeguard their forests. It was in the year 1973, 24th April that under the president ship of social activist Alam Singh Bisht, a huge meeting was organised for the first time in Gopeshwar in which Gaura Devi and her co women activists were also present.

The reason for convening this largely attended meeting was to unitedly and forcefully oppose the Simon Company’s contractors and workers who were sanctioned the government contract to cut large number of trees. As a sequel to this, another meeting was organised at Fata Rampur under the leadership of Kedar Singh Rawat and there came into existence the great Chipko movement.

The leader of this movement was Gaura Devi. She belonged to Rayinee village and the Simon Company was accorded the contract to axe about 2400 full grown trees situated in and around hervillage’s periphery. All the contractors of the forest department and their workers were fully armed and ready for the mission tree felling but Gaura Devi and her 27 highly dedicated co women activists hugged trees and bravely fought the contractors, finally making them run away.

They hugged the trees and asked the workers to first axe them before finally axing the trees. They hugged the tree trunks for hours together thus discouraging the contractors finally. The women risked their lives but would not allow the single tree to be cut inviting a wave of anger amongst the local populace against the forest contractors who had finally no option but to run away never to return back.

A committe was thereafter formed by the government under the chairmanship of Dr. Virendra Kumar which officially recommended stop to the tree felling exercise, permanentally. The movement thereafter gained national and international attention and media hype.
