Supreme Court puts Blanket Ban on Firecrackers

Published

on

On Monday, Oct. 9, the Supreme Court suspended the sale of firecrackers in Delhi NCR region till November 1, 2017. This step was taken to test whether a Deepavali without firecrackers will have a “positive effect” on the health of citizens of this region and a steadily deteriorating air quality of Delhi NCR.

Deepavali can be celebrated with equal fervour by various other means as well. Direct evidence is available of deterioration of air quality at alarming levels every year due to burning firecrackers during Deepavali. Particularly in 2016 pm [particulate matter] levels had shot up by three times, making Delhi the worst city in the world, as far as air pollution was concerned. Direct and immediate cause therefor was burning of crackers during Deepavali for this incident.

The Bench of judges pointed to the various efforts made by the government, the media and civil society to create awareness of the harms of burning firecrackers, especially on the children. The adverse effects have been witnessed year after year. The air quality deteriorates abysmally and the city chokes on air. This leads to closing of the schools and the authorities are compelled to take various measures on emergency basis, when faced with a “health crisis”.

Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has consistent stated for the past 20 years that sulphur in fireworks should be banned. It released in a statement, “Sulphur on combustion produces sulphur-dioxide and it is extremely harmful to health.” The CPCB has clearly said that between 9 p.m. to midnight on Deepavali, the levels of sulphur-dioxide content in the air rise dangerously.

Uttarayini festival financed by AAP government at 33 places in Delhi this January

Published

on

Uttarayini, a popular festival of the Uttarakhand and its inhabitants living in and outside the eighteen year old state in various metropolises, cities and towns, including the interior villages have been celebrating it for centuries.

This festival is celebrated every year on 14th of January as a symbol of unity, amity, peace and harmony. People gather together in fairs and socio cultural functions on this occasion and enjoy the festival by wearing regional cultural and folk attires and perform on stage or congregations called Uttarayini Kauthig.

In Delhi too it was celebrated with much fan fare in various parts where Uttarakhandi population is cohesive and densely populated. The capital city of India Delhi comprises of large number of Kumaonies and Garhwalies, perhaps 25 lakhs at the minimum, may be even more. The Uttarakhandies are second in population in terms of a cohisively credible population after the inhabitants of Bihar and UP known as Poorvanchalies.

The Purvanchalies and Uttarakhandies are therefore considered to be a credible vote bank for both the Congress and BJP and now the AAP has been succesful in making inroads into the Uttarakhandi vote bank in Delhi. While the prominent festival of the Bihar community in Delhi called CHAT PUJA is being celebrated with full fanfare in all the Bihari dominated constituencies and areas of Delhi with the governmenral support of the previous Congress and now AAP governments since long, the Uttarakhandies too are lucky to have acknowledged the attention of Arvind Kejrival government which has this year officially financed 33 to 72 Uttarayini programmes in Delhi being celebrated on 14th January, 2018 in about 75 places all over the capital city.

The AAP government has allocated the organisers of each Uttarayini function a consolidated budget ranging from 1 lakh to 2.5 lakhs enabling them entertain the local Uttarakhandies of Delhi. It is learnt that this move of the AAP government would help AAP make inroads in the sizeable Uttarakhandi vote bank of the capital city. It may be recalled that during the last assembly election the AAP has not allocated a single ticket to an Uttarakhand candidate and had annoyed the community to a great extent.

But by financing Uttarayini on a vast scale this time it has definitely won the hearts of the people of the Himalayan state living in Delhi.
The below Uttarayini function however has not been financed by AAP.

Lord Shiva’s Kedarnath fully engulfed in snow

Published

on

This is the current, stunning and marvellous picture of historical Kedarnath Shrine fully engulfed with knee deep snow sent by senior journalist friend Mohit Dimri, which remains closed during the winters and opens in April, May reviving its usual functioning with hundreds of thousands of pilgrims all over the country and the globe thronging in, for Lord Shiva’s Darshan, the creater and destroyer of this Universe.

The climate here is extremely chilling with the usual temperature sliding to minus 7 degrees during noon and crossing – 20 or more degrees during midnight. But what looks interesting and adventurous is the fact that the employees of Nehru Mountaineering Institute (NIM) looking after the affairs of the maintenance and development of Kedarnath and its immediate surroundings are round the clock busy amid the most deadly, treacherous and challenging situations, clearing the area and roads of heaps of snow measuring 2 to 3 feet over ground. Hats off to them.

It may be recalled that during 2013 June 15/ 16 when the entire Kedarpuri including Ram Bada and the Kedar valley was engulfed with the highly devastating deluge due to massive cloud bursts and subsequent bursting of the Chorabaari Lake also called the Gandhi Sarovar, they were the brave and hard working people of the NIM who in the aftermath of this devastating ecological disaster rebuild and renovated the entire Kedarnath vicinity under extreme challenging weather conditions beyond anybody’s expectation with the landing of high tech extremely heavy loaded bull dozers and other machines ferryed at such a towering height through helicopters.

It was a record in itself. Historical Kedarnath temple is situated at 11, 755 feet from the sea level where even during the summers, the weather comes to 2 to 5 degrees during the nights and the running high speed Mandakini and Alaknanda rivers get frozen . Over ten thousand pilgrims from Uttarakhand and several other parts of the country had died during this catastrophic tragedy. Uttarakhand has four historical religious shrines popular world over where millions of pilgrims come to pay their respects and prayers with extreme obeisance to lord Kedarnath, Badrinath, Goddess Gangotri and Yamnotri.

While Gangotri and Yamunotri emerges from the huge himalayan glaciers since time immemorial quenching the thirst and irrigational needs of the entire nation finally converging in Bay of Bengal, the Kedarnathand Badrinath shrines are of immense value for the devotees all around the globe.

A month ago prime minister Narendra Modi had visited Kedarnath Temple for the second time on the day of its closure during the winters and had announced several projects for the over all facelift of Kedarpuri that involved innovative development of inner roads and construction of modernised luving accomodation for the pujaries as well as the pilgrims who visit here from distant parts of the country and the globe including inner roads etc. The work on these projects got badly affected due to the excessive snow fall say the sources which will be resumed after the inclement weather situation improves in the near future. The Kedarnath site and temple fully clad in snow gives the imresson as if a pitch white( bright) silver sheet have been spread in Kedarpuri by Lord Shiva.

BADRINATH DHAM CLOSES ON 19TH NOVEMBER,2017 ON ADVENT OF WINTERS

Published

on

The doors of the historic Badrinath Dham, one of the prominent historic 1200 year old religious shrine visited by lakhs of devotees from around the world, are closing tomorrow on 19th, November, 2017 on the advent of chilling  winter to be again opened on April, during the summer. You can see in the picture how the snow has already engulfed the Badrinath temple and its surrounding vicinity including the Bamni Village n Maana Gaon as well. Mana village is 1 & a 1/2 kilometres away at the Indo China border from here.

After the most tragic catastrophic disaster of 2013 in the entire Kedar valley that killed more than 8 thousand people, local as well the pilgrims who visited Kedarnath and other religious shrines, the in take of pilgrims was lesser thereafter as compared to the pre 2013 era but as the situation improved gradually and confidence level enhanced the numbers of the visitors to Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, Yamnotri increased considerably.

The latest statistics indicate despite so much of confusion and apprehension in the aftermath of the dreaded ecological disaster as situation and renovation work  of the Kedarnath temple site enhanced, a whopping 24 lakh pilgrims visited the aforesaid four historical ancient shrines after June 2013 till date. This encoraging figure of the tourists and pilgrims from all over India and abroad has vindicated the fact that conditions of roads, all the 4 shrines and tourist destinations including facilities  in the aftermath of the ecological Kedanath disaster have improvised a lot to the satisfaction of the pilgrims.

It may be recalled that the Badrinath temple opens every year in the month of April-May & closes for winters in the third week of November. Thus the temple is shut down for 6 months every year during which prayers to the Badri Vishal continue at the Narsimha temple in Joshimath.  The dates of Badrinath Temple opening will be announced by the priests during the Basant Panchmi. Last year the Badrinath temple was opned on May 6th, 2017 and would close on 19th September 2017 this time.

While the doors of Badrinath Temples are closed the inhabitants of the last village of Indo China border one and a half kilometre away from Badrinath also shift to Neeti village from Maana gaon to returen back during April after six months. This practice is going on from ancient time, since time immemorial.

The whole temple including the Maana gaon and its AAKHIRI CHAI KI DUKAAN, ( THE LAST TEA STALL OF INDIA) also gets completely snow clad. They are the only ITBP and the Indian Army Jawans who petrol the area amid extremely challenging climatic conditions and stay here in minus 25 to 30 or more degree during the entire winters guarding our borders.

Published

on

There is lot of hue and cry over the recent decision of the National Green Tribunal putting curb on the infinite number of visitors going for Goddess Vaishno Devi Darshan by issuing directives to curb the number of regular visitors to fifty thousand at a time instead of myriad number of devotees thronging at the historical spiritual Shrine considered extremely pious and miraculous by billions of HINDUS globally.

Even the emperor of India Jalalludin Akbar three centuries ago visited Godess Vaishnodevi Dham bare footed and presented a magnificient silver CHATRA in reverence to the Godess after he heard tales of the miracles of Godess Durga stationed here. In its order the NGT has issued number of directives in order to improve and maintain the deteriorating environment in and around the Vaishno Devi Shrine vicinity and reducing the inconvenience of the devotees, the tribunal has asked the Vaishno Devi Shrine Board to apply brakes on the unaccounted number of devotees visiting here and confine it to 50000 numbers on Daily basis.

Orders have also been issued for maintaining cleanliness in the vicinity and the fine of Rs. 2000 fixed on anyone spittng or throwing rubbish in the open in KATRA township and else where , from where the YATRA from VAISHNO DEVI DHAM starts. The NGT has also issued orders for forthright ban on pony ferrying the devotees and instead has ordered for ferrying them in the battery operated vehicles till the shrine. It has in addition banned the future constructions in and around the Shrine areas till Katra.These orders are being implemented from today itself.

However there is lot of resentment among the devotees of Mata Vaishno Devi who’ve opposed this move of NGT, not entirely but a number confining order that confines the daily limit to only 50 thousand devotees asking the government in protest as to where would the remaining thousands of devotees go in view of the arbitrary ban. It may be recalled that bllions of people visit Vaishno Devi Shrine everyday and about 77 lakh devotees visited for Goddesse’s blessings in the year 2017.

12.5 thousand litres mustard oil used in 1.80 lakh earthern lamps in Ayodhya

Published

on

After taking a genuine stand on the historical monument Taj Mahal thus giving a huge rebuttal to his own party legislature infamous to raise controversies on issues of no relevance or raking up the issues leading to unambiguous confrontation between the majority and minority the saffron clad Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath has made a global record by lightening the historic pious river Saryu’s bank and the adjoining precints with a whopping 1lakh 71 thousand earthern lamps where once in the TRETA YUG as the saying goes Lord Rama, Sita and Lakshmana landed in a Pushpak Vimaan after completing the 14 year old exile.

This historic moment never ever witnessed ever in any festival of India during the last 70 years after or before independence this outstanding efflorscent event during two days Deepawali, the festival of Hindus celebrated every year as a symbol of expressing happiness and ecstasy on the eve of Lord Ram, his wife Sita and brother Lakskmana returning back to Ayodhya after arduous 14 long years of most challenging exile. About 12.5 thousand litres of mustard oil with over 5 lakh cotton batties and two lakh earthern pots ( Diyas) were used to lighten the lamps on the banks of historic and pious Saryu River where Lord Rama stepped in for the first time after reaching Ayodhya from his most arduous and challenging 14 year protracted exile.

This is a world record, as never ever such large number of earthern lamps in any festival have ever been lightened in India’s or world’s history in a single go and in a single night. Though the various political parties may draw different political cannotations of this event but the fact can’t be denied that Lord Ram is the undisputed God of billions n billions of Hindus world over who are not athiest and believe in the Almighty.

The Bhartiya Janata Party’s main plank had been Lord Rama and the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya, though the matter is presently subjudice as it’s in the Supreme court awaiting the final decision. The BJP had already derived political advantage on this issue when the BJP led NDA formed government at the centre under the then PM Atal.Bihari Vajpayee but the issue was sidelined on the opposition and advice of the then NDA partners, thus the matter finally going under the purview of the Court. God knows, what will be the fate of this complex issue in future that involves the majority and the minority communities.

But as far as the inkling of the Uttar Pradesh Chief minister is concerned he has already unambiguously made his stand known that he would wholeheartedly welcome the honourable court’s decision but is fully committed to not let the issue of Lord Ram go unnoticed or diluted and has as such allocated Rs 133 crores for the complete face lift of Ayodhya, the birth place of Lord Rama. A more than 100 metre high Statue of Lord Rama is being elevated on the banks of river Saryu with total modernisation of the area at an adjoining the river and Ayodhya.

This is for the first time that such a massive budget for the development and the facelift of a religious place has been arranged by any government of the state. However no rival of chief minister Yogi Adityanath or his party can point a finger of opposition, as a massive budget, just double of what is being spent on Ayodhya viz 360 crores, for the face lift of Agra and the precincts near the historical monuments like Taj, Agra Fort n Fatehpur Sikri has also been earmarked.

The chief minister Yogi Adityanath is visiting Agra on 26th October to formally inaugurate this over ambitious project. The complete facelift of historical and spiritual places of Agra and Ayodhya will not only improve the quality of life of the local populace but will also boost tourism on a tremendous scale earning immense profits and foreign exchange for the country n the state.

Save child labour working in firecracker factories, let’s pledge to give up firecrackers this Diwali

Published

on

Deepawali is just a at our doorstep. It’s falling on 18th October and we’ll be experiencing once again, as usual, the unbearing noise and heavy environmental polution due to excessive burning of crackers and subsequent occurance of several tragedies, of precious lives being lost, of children, young and old. Why can’t after all, we as the responsible citizens of the country take a collective pledge to give up crackers, for always, and instead confine ourselves to just LAKSHMI PUJA and reverence to other Gods than involving ourselves irresponsibly in vulger ostentations like wasting hundreds of thousands of rupees in buying expensive fire crackers and then risking our and others’ lives by creating uncontrollable environmental pollution and making our children and ourselves’ vulnerable to various deseases related to respiratory problems, lungs disfunction, dreaded asthma and various cardilogical complications.

Delhi being the capital city of India with a massive population of 1crore fifty lakhs and over 80 lakh vehicles, is already reeling under massive pollution related complications of physical health, respiratory disorders, silicosis disorders due to increasing chemicalised dust inhale and vehicular pollution and pollution of contaminated drinking water leading to the creation and spread of various contagious intestine related infected deseases and epidemics.

Delhi tops the chart in pollution related deaths with tremendous increase recorded in the mortality statistics which is utterly surprising and shocking. The succesive governments, honourable courts and several responsible social welfare organisations have been issuing warnings and appeals time and again to give up fire crackers during DEEPAWALI but unfortunately of no awail.

What is more shocking and anguishing is the fact that  the literate, educated and the middle class sections of the society become intentionally uncaring and careless during the Deepawali festivals and in order to influence their neighbours or friends circle by their monetary prestige and affluence waste hundreds of crores nationally in just few hours thus not only creating hell of the noise and environmental pollution but also negatively contribute in creating havoc in the society by killing hundreds of patients of cardiovascular, asthematic and lungs related deseases in various parts of the country.

The hundreds of thousands of tons of polluted gases and carbon dioxide goes into the environment and gets stuck in the Ozone layer thus becoming a permanent source of infecting our lungs n making people suffer of various uncurable deseases like the cancer of the lungs. In addition to these harmful dreaded effects during Deepawali festivals hundreds of cases of deaths are also reported in various parts of the country when these firecrackers explode during the process of their production, in shops, cracker stores and while carrying them individually, in groups or in vehicles like heavy trucks etc.

Hundreds of those who luckily save themselves become disabled for the entire life by losing their eyes, limbs or arms. Just a day before on 8th of October two youths between 20 and 22 years died at Agra on the mobile scooter while carrying firecrackers for sale.

The impact of the explosion was so extensive that the parts of the bodies of these most unfortunate youths were torn into pieces not to be found later on and also literally injuring several other passers by with heavy burn injuries. Moreover, today thousands of children below 18 years are working in the fireworks industries killing themselves with cancerous ailments due to abject poverty. Giving up firecrackers during Deepawali will compel them to adopt some other less dangerous and healthily harmless profession. THEREFORE FRIENDS, LET’S HONESTLY PLEDGE TO GIVE UP FIRECRACKERS COMPLETELY, THIS DEEPAWALI and save hundreds of thousands of lives. AMEN

Meanwhile we thank the honourable Supreme Court of India to have issued a perfect and an outstanding pro people verdict to ban firecrackers during the Deepawali fesival in Delhi. Its indeed an extremely vice decision that will safeguard and save millions of lives that could have otherwise fallen prey to the ill and higly disastrous effects of dreaded pollution created by the firecrackers during this hindu festival. Its a classic example of a pro people decision which will send a tough message across the country compelling people and authorites to follow suit in the near future. Hats off to our wisdom oriented intellectual and intelligent pro people judiciary.

Durga Puja – In the Indian Culture.

Published

on

Durga Puja is a famous Hindu festival when Goddess Durga is worshipped. Durga Puja is also known as Durgotsava. Durgotsava refers to all five days festivity and these five days are observed as Shashthi, Maha Saptami, Maha Ashtami, Maha Navami and Vijayadashami. (According to Hindu religious texts Durga Puja, including Chandi Path, should begin from the next day of Mahalaya Amavasya. Mahalaya is the most important day of Pitru Paksha, when Hindus pay homage to their ancestors, is not considered for starting any auspicious work.)

Most states except West Bengal do Ghatasthapana on Pratipada which is the next day of Mahalaya Amavasya. Ghatasthapana is equivalent to Kalparambha during Durga Puja when Goddess Durga is invoked. Kalparambha mostly falls on Shashthi Tithi during Devi Paksha. According to regional customs and beliefs Durga Puja during Shardiya Navratri varies from nine days to one day only which is also mentioned in Dharmasindhu.The Goddess Durga arrives on the Earth on the first day of Devi Paksha which starts on the next day of Mahalaya Amavasya during Pitru Paksha. She departs on Durga Visarjan day. The weekdays when she arrives and departs are significant and considered as omen of coming time.While this is considerably correct, it is perhaps not wholly true, as it is my submission that the Durga puja celebrations are indeed living and pulsating expression of urban folk culture. All the craftsmanship that enriches the pujas, like the designing and execution of the massive theme pandals with their exquisite interior frills and decoration, are new avenues of folk art. The imaginative sculpting of the goddess and her retinue and the special lighting are all products of a refined urban folk culture. Even the songs, that include the traditional pre-puja Aagamoni songs and the prolific literature that are created are also cultural outpourings, though not necessarily of the folk variety. The dhunochi-naach dances that are done before the image, by balancing lighted urns of smoking and burning incense on one’s palms or between the teeth to the furious beat of the drums, are surely a part of folk culture.
