The government Wednesday directed all airports to make public announcements in local language first, followed by Hindi and English, officials said.
The latest move follows a directive from Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu.Officials said that the Airports Authority of India (AAI) has issued a directive to all aerodromes under its control to start making public announcements in the local language in addition to Hindi and English.
The Civil Aviation Ministry has also sent out a communication to private airport operators regarding public announcements to be made in the local language.Prabhu has directed the AAI to take steps to make that all announcements on public address system at all the airports in the country should be in local language followed by Hindi and English, officials said.The directions would not be applicable for silent airports, where public announcements are not made, they added.
In 2016, the AAI had issued a circular asking airports under its control to make public announcements in the local language followed by Hindi and English.The minister’s decision came after representations from certain quarters that public announcements at airports should also made in the local language, they added.There are more than 100 operational airports.
A unique example of empowering the children of the poorest of the poor through education and skills
In this materialistic world when nobody has time for anybody, there is one selfless teacher, wedded to the cause of upgrading the socio educational standards of extremely poor, hapless n deprived children who are either parentless, have no source of income, constrained to beg in the society for survival or penniless.
Such outstanding human beings with generosity, compassion and will to do something incredible for these worst lots of the society in the eyes of people are seldom seen or found.
But yes we have one extraordinary example in Srinagar, Garhwal, Uttarakhand, a teacher by profession namely Sangeeta Faraasi.
This outstanding woman with exceptional commitment n dedication goes in the MALEEN BASTIES, the localities at the lowest ebb n enthuses children of the poorest of poor classes to learn reading n writing so as to become a credible citizen of the country tomorrow and stand at par with the educated, rich n affluents by the dint of their hard work, maximum education and knowledge.
Can anybody believe that teacher Sangeeta Faraasi with limited resources based in Srinagar, Pauri Garhwal has so far helped freed 10 students of the beggers families and get them addmitted in local schools.
She educates these poorest of the poor children for two hours every evening free of costs voluntarily.
She had also organised a summer camp for the children of these marginalised and economic deprived classes in which she imparts them educative training in vocational skills as well.
In the summer camp she teaches the children and tiny tots about craft, drawing, singing, nukkad naataks and paintings to generate interest in them towards extra co currical activities and also entice them towards reading n writing.
This small summer camp will continue for a week from 31st June to 6th june and good number of poor children are being brought here for training in skills n other curricular activities. Besides these camps Mrs Sangeeta Farasi also gives free tutions to the poor student for every two hours daily and is a regular feature. We salute her noble endeavour and hope that other teachers will also follow suit.
Accident patients die in Srinagar Garhwal hospital due to the apathy of hospital management/ health sector in mess in Uttarakhand
The double engine government of Bhartiya Janata Party in Uttarakhand exhibits too much in terms of achievements but in actuality not a single outcome or achievement of this government has actually come to the fore.
The conditions of government hospitals in particular is extremely worrisome with majority of the hapless n poor patients of the interior villages n even the cities n towns, not being rendered adequate or proper medical treatment as majority of the government hospitals have dearth of doctors, surgeons n staff and are devoid of xray n ultrasound machines or ill equipped, not to speak of conduction of surgeries especially of the critical illnesse.
The poor patients are constrained to purchase expensive medicines from the private chemists who are hand in glove with the doctors n physicians who allegedly acknowledge the fixed commission on every medicinal purchase. In fact, it’s a huge racket that is prevailing in the health department n hospitals of Uttarakhand government.
There have been hundreds of instances of pregnant women either delievering their babies on the way or dying in hospitals or local health centres for want of adequate treatment.
The stock of medicines are allegedly clandestinely sold by gangs active in hospitals n the patients are constrained to buy them from private chemists at exorbitant rates.
It is because of these reasons n total negligence of the government in improving or modernising the health services in the hills of Uttarakhand that high profile private clinics n hospitals run by medical mafias are earning handsome profits from the people of the hills which is beyond their capacity to pay but dearth of adequate medical services in government hospitals compel the poor rural and semi urban patients to seek the patronage of these private hospitals for critical illnesses agaunst highly exorbitant treatment expenditure which is actually beyond their capacity to pay, but manage anyhow circumstancially.
Half of Uttarakhadies come to Delhi for medical treatment n deteriorating health services is one of the primary reasons for the people migrating to cities n metropolises apart from lack of educational facilities n job avenues.
The behaviour of the physicians, surgeons n the hospital staff is also arrogant who literary speak rough with the illeterate patients who have no option but to be at the mercy of these doctors.
The attendence of the hospital staff n doctors is also under question as majority of the senior doctors, specialists n surgeons are on long leaves and are running their own private clinics in the cities n towns, thus minting huge profits.
They have good connections in the government and are therefore fully patronised. The case in point is the version of a social activist of Srinagar Garhwal Pradeep Tiwari whose vedio is going viral these days uploaded by someone in the social networking site. Pradeep Tiwari has while literally crying spoken in front of few media channels in Srinagar Garhwal about the deteriorating condition of Srinagar Garhwal HN Bahuguna hospital n institute which also produces MBBS doctors.
Tiwari made startling disclosures about few injured patients in an accident whose lives could not be saved as the hospital authorities denied the permission for the patients’ ultrasound n Xrays apart from delivering them timely n proper treatment.
This vedio has been loaded in the FB timeline of Badalta Srinagar. This is indeed shocking as Uttarakhand has acknowledged the separate status 19 years ago but till date the conditions of government hospitals, health centres and 108 ambulance service is quite pitiable and shameful.

Time ripe to completely overhaul the Congress organisation upside down
TIME RIPE TO COMPLETELY OVERHAUL THE CONGRESS PARTY UPSIDE DOWN
The shameful defeat of the Congress party under the leadership its president Rahul Gandhi, not once but twice, the earlier being in 2014, has made one thing amply clear that the leadership of Rahul Gandhi has not make any credible mark inorder to improve the performance of the 135 year old party at the pan India level, right from grass roots to the top.
He has even lost from his family’s stronghold Amethi. The party, today is in such a pitiable condition that in the last five year despite so much of efforts and energy, the Nehru Gandhi scion’s ( Rahul’s) leadership alongwith charismatic Priyanka Gandhi, being equated with the image of late political stalwart Indira Gandhi, could not enhance its tally of Lok Sabha seats to more than merely 8 numbers. It is shocking that the party could not even open its account in 18 states of the country.
The Congress had 44 Lok Sabha members post 2014 elections n now 52. The reason behind the debacle or drubbing are many not one. The party is completely surrounded by the coterie of influential old leaders whose sons n daughters too are active at all levels and several of these coterie leaders have cases of alleged corruption etc registered against them doing politics with comfort in air conditioned offices at the national as well as state levels.
They have made Congress a private limited company not allowing capable n good people entry into the organisation. The connect of the Congress leaders in state as well as, at the national level with their rank n file n at grass root levels have been lost almost completely.
Only handful of leaders with money, muscle n influence even uneducated looking for bright opportunities in Congress have associated themselves with central n state leaders hardly organising the grass root programmes or protest demonstrations on burning issues or failure of the government.
The party ‘s programmes, policies, ideology and other important aspects are not disseminated downwards nor efforts are initiated to enroll members at the grass root level.
Congress chief Rahul Gandhi n Priyanka Gandhi have been doing their best but the lack of organisation at the state, district or block levels could not translate those positive efforts n initiatives into votes.
Simply calling themselves as Secular or believing in a pluralistic society would not do. The Congress party needs to come out of its old shackles and change itself according to the modern times, taking lessons from the winning political parties.
The entire organsation needs the complete overhaul with change of old guards with new ,energetic, young but qualified leaders hailing from poor and middle classes or with rural backgrounds n of all communities n catagories.
The old, defunct and defeated leaders at least twice should be shown the door including those who have the corrupt back ground n doubtful reputation.
If need be, a steering high powered committee of leaders with experience from all the states of the country with different backgrounds should be created and programmes of protests against the failures of the new government should be regularly carried out with seminars, talks, conferences n party worker conventions at block levels in all the states from day one of the formation of the government at the centre.
The high command should get rid of liabilities n in their place some experienced new faces should be brought to the fore.
The party leadership should devise a new n credible strategy to formulate plans from now onwards to counter the BJP led NDA in 2024 on various issues – regional, national n international. If need be the national president should have more working hands under his umbrella for his assistence but of blot free image n reputation
Surat fire’s toll rises to 20. CM Vijay Rupani announces Rs 4 lakh as financial compensation for each of the dead
Shame on the Gujarat government and its administration that its chief minister Vijay Rupani has valued the life of a dead in Surat fire for merely Rs four lakhs.
The Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani has announced Rs four lakh as compensation amount for the bereaved family of each of the dead in the massive fire in Surat Gujarat.
The toll till now has reached to 20 n several others seriously injured. Cases have been registered under relevant sections of IPC against the builder and the owner of the coaching centre for violating the building n fire rules/ by laws.
The furious and highly angered relatives n near n dear ones of the deads have raised anti Modi slogans when the Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani n the health minister reached the spot.
They’ve angerly argued n complained that the administration haven’t responded in time n adequately to save the lives of students trapped in this massive fire as number of the immolated students were constrained to jump from the top floor killing themselves on the spot.
There were not sufficient number of fire tenders and other equipments. The disaster management officials were conspicuous by their absence.
This apathetic behaviour n attitude of Surat administration has resulted in 20 deaths say the furious onlookers and the relatives of those who’d succumbed to fire injuries.
On the top of that the financial compensation announced by the state CM Vijay Rupani was merely Rs 4 lakh for each of the dead which is considered to be a tip of an iceberg or peanuts.
Souds immensely shocking that a government that has been accorded a historic majority by the people of the country n Gujarat exhibits so much of indecency n harsh behaviour towards the deads of the massive Surat fire. There is tremendous opposition n anger in the public for the extremely poor show in saving the fire victims n coming to their rescue in time.
National SC ST Commission summons the CS, DGP n IG law n order in Jitendra Dass murder case taking suo motto cognizance
The member of the National Commission for Sheduled Castes and Sheduled Tribes Dr. Mrs. Swaraj Diwan has taken the suo motto cognizance of the diabolical murder of the resident of Tehri Garhwal Jitendra Prasad hailing from dalit community, who was mercilessly beaten to death few days ago while he was having dinner in a marriage party, sitting on a chair in front of the members of a higher caste.
The culprits have been arrested after tremendous media hype under section 302 n 307.
The National Commission of Sheduled Castes and Sheduled Tribes based in Delhi has summoned the DG Police, Uttarakhand, Chief Secretary, IGP law and Order, CMO and SSP Tehri Garhwal n other senior officers with the details of the case.with performance report.
Mrs. Dr. Swaraj Diwan has expressed her shock n serious concern over the heinous crime by the upper caste members on a dalit for no fault of his and assured the traumatic family members of the Commission’s all possible help and adequate financial support. She assured that the culprits would be penalised with the most stringent punishment.
She has also exhorted n appealed to the general public not to politicise the situation for vested interests as this is the time to bring the culprits of this brutal crime to justice.
It may be recalled that crime graph in Uttarakhand seems to be on the rise as hundreds of incidents of women insecurity and lawlessness has been on ascendence during the past few years.
Few months ago an 18 year old girl who was being stalked for several days was immolated by a young culprit in broad daylight who had a one sided crush on her.
She later on died with 90% burns in Safdarjung hospital. Such criminals with an intent to commit diabolical acts should be dealt with severely so as to send across a strong message of deterrent in the society.
The National Commission of SC/ SC has summoned all the senior state officers on 15 th May in New Delhi’s Lok Nayak Bhawan, Khan Market, the headquarter of the Commission.
Yeomen service by the volunteers of Uttranchal Bhratri Sewa Sanstha
The youth volunteers of Uttranchal Bhratra Sewa Sansthan based at ( in) Delhi are doing a novel job of cleansing the Nigam Bodh Ghat cremetorium at the Yamuna riverside in Delhi, situated opposite the famous historic old Hanuman Temple at Kinari Bazaar, just twenty minute walk from Kashmiri gate Bus terminus.
About two dozen volunteers wearing their organisations’ orange colured T shirt arrive at Nigam Bodh Ghat cremetorium usually on Sundays or on holidays with brooms n cleaners and dedicate themselves to clean the entire area to ensure that it becomes neat n clean devoid of rubbish n filth.
The selfless volunteers of this NGO/ social organisation also manage adequate sitting arrangements like community benches,water taps n other facilities etc from the donors who are approached by the volunteers of this organisation.
In these days of materialism and hectic involvement, when human beings are busy minting money n running behind comforts, selfless volunteers Uttaranchal Bhratra Sewa Sanstha are undoubtedly doing a yeomen service by keeping the Nigam Bodh Ghat crematorium neat and clean n also providing amneties for the convenience of the people coming here for bidding last adieu to their near and dear ones. Such a selfless social service indeed deserve myriad appreciation.
According to one of the volunteers of this organisation Akhilesh Bhatt such activity and selfless service accords them immense internal satisfaction and pride to do something concrete for the place where one day each n every person has to come to bid final adieu to this materialistic world.
It may be recalled that hundreds of dead bodies arrive here on daily basis for performance of last rights according to the Hindu traditions.
The MCD n Delhi government in league with several socio religious organisations are looking after the maintenance and cleanliness of Nigam Bodh Ghat.
But despite the best efforts of the stakeholders it still gives a sorry look and the Yamuna river alongside is also extremely filthy n polluted.
Selfless social organisations like Uttaranchal Bhratra Sewa Sangathan volunteers are indeed a source of inspiration for others to follow suit n deserve kudos. They want to bring the Ghat to the standards of Haridwar ghat in the days to come.
Uttarakhandies has a sizeable population in Delhi and Nigam Bodh Ghat is also used by them to perform the last rights at the riverside of the ghat whereas other communities use the sheds n inner area to perform last rights here.
No trace of mysteriously disappeared 14 yr old Mohit Kathaith from Vaishali even after three days
A fourteen year old boy, student of class 9th of Police Modern School, Vaishali, Ghaziabad is missing for the last three days and his where abouts are still unknown.
Mohit has gone missing from Sector three Vaishali since 1st of May when he started for his school on foot at 8 AM as the school is hardly 1.25 kilometres away from his residence.
His mysterious dissapearence has raised doubts in the minds of his traumatic family members including his parents.
Son of father late Gambhir Singh Kathaith and mother Sarita Kathaith, Mohit was also carrying a mobile phone with him which is now going switched off. The number of his mobile phone is : 7838913388.
According to his widowed mother, after leaving for his school just after half an hour on May first morning probably at 8.30 AM Mohit had informed that he had reached the school.
But after confirming from the school authorities it was ascertained that Mohit had’nt come to school on 1st May, contrary to the statement of disappeared Mohit who according his mother had confirmed about reaching the school.
It however remains to be seen whether Mohit told the truth or he was lying.
However, Mohit’s mother who is a hapless widow, tried to contact him on his mobile phone, several times but it was shut down.
The confused and tormented widow Sarita Kathaith, thereafter tried their level best to search him at all the possible locations like his friends place and the homes of relatives, but of no avail.
Failing in their constant attempts to trace their mysteriously dissappeared son Mohit Kathaith who is still an adolescent the bothered mother n immediate relatives went to the police to request them lodge the FIR and energise their efforts to trace him but of no avail initially.
The local police informed the parents on 1st evening that a written report has been filed in the police post of Vaishali n that they are trying to search the missing boy but of no awail and finally on 2nd May evening the FIR regarding the missing 14 year old Mohit Kathaith was registered in the Indirapuram Police Station.
While the Indirapuram police is trying its best to search the missing 14 year Mohit, his relatives, near n dear ones n the neighbours are also trying hard to locate him but in vain.
Almost 72 hours has elapsed and there is no clue about mysteriously missing adolescent Mohit.
This certainly raise question mark on the so called efficiency and the apathy of the police authorities.
Had they been serious enough they could have traced him by now.
It may be recalled that similarly a 5 year old girl Kashish Rawat was mysteriously found missing four years ago from Ghaziabad and despite serious efforts by umpteen number of social organisations of Uttarakhand in Delhi n UP including lodging of FIR n handing over of the case to crime branch she is still at large which unambiguously speaks of the ignorance and apathetic attitude of the police authorities in searching mysteriously missing children in Ghaziabad location.
JUDICIARY IN JEOPARDY
It has been 70 odd years since the dawn of Independent India but hard to heed such a sensitive case against none other than the numero uno of Indian judiciary. What about the ordinary citizens like you and me. Who will be the savior of our democracy?
On April 20, 2019, Honourable CJI was maligned by a shameful sensitive sexual harassment allegation by none other than his colleague. After a tumulus high voltage drama of one and a half week, the plaintiff has decided to pull out of the case due to the shaky and frightening environment. Irrespective of truth, it is hard to heed such a sensitive case in the chapter Indian Judiciary history.
It is not the first time the image of judiciary tarnished, there are several instances in the past which hard to reveal the harsh reality. Be it V Ramaswami way back in 1993 for alleged corruption, in 2011 Calcutta high court judge Justice Soumitra Sen, guilty of financial misappropriation as a judge and misrepresentation of facts, in 2006 Nagarjuna Reddy of the high court of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana for misusing position to victimize a Dalit Judge. In a recent shocking event, another Calcutta High Court Judge Justice C S Karnan became the first sitting judge of a high court to be jailed for defamatory remarks against the judiciary, seems to be countless instances(PTI sources)
Now the big question arises why such defamatory allegations have been cropping up from time to time in Indian judiciary chapter. Does it mean because of a few handfuls of maligned citizens of India people won’t get an impartial and independent trial and hearing in their cases? No, a common man view and perspective won’t change. Still, people in India feel safe by speaking the sentence “I will see you in the court.”It is an august and unparallel system which always bodes well for all of us in crisis time. We urge our esteemed judiciary to introspect their shortcomings and adversaries in upcoming periods. It must try to reinstate the faith and fear of an ordinary Indian. As they say “Justice delayed is justice denied”.

Empowering the village children with quality education Kamala Gariya passes away. Our heartfelt tributes to a visionery woman
Why is it that people who are involved transparently n with utmost dedication to reform the society and educate children of the poor, economically deprived n marginalised classes of the society are called by the Almighty as such a young age especially when the mission of these pro active education volunteers remains’ incomplete.
One such dedicated and a visionery woman namely Kamala Gariya has unfortunately left for her eternal journey ( heavenly abode) leaving her selfless mission to depart quality education to the children of remote areas of the Uttarakhand hills in between.
However, she has passed the baton of her unfinished tasks to her husband Bharat Gariya and other dedicated teachers of a private school called Angel’s academy functioning at the distant rural area like Bageshwar’s Kapkot vicinity where twelve years ago the local village children were struggling hard to acknowledge quality english medium education at cheaper rates.
In the absence of education, especially the quality education, majority of the families of the surrounding villages were constrained to leave their villages thus shifting to local towns n metropolises.
Late Kamala Gariya, keeping in view the genuine requirement of a school to impart cheaper quality education opened a school known as Angels’ Academy which imparted quality education to hundreds of children now studying in good number of prestigious Navoday Schools, Sainik School Ghorakha n Himjyoti Dehradun.to seed higher education in various desciplines of their choice.
The school also ensures that the students are taught local languages, how to preserve their cultural n folk heritage including to be outstanding singers, actors n sportsmen in the near future.
It was due to the dedicated hard work, vision and enthusiasm of late educationist Kamala Gariya that schools like Angel’s academy are imparting quality founding education in the remotest corners of Uttarakhand where unfortunately government schools running with extra budgets are being closed for the lack of quality education.
The children of Angels’ Academy School also send Rakhies to the Armymen guarding our porous borders on Rakhabandhan days every year. Our heartfelt tributes to educationist Kamala Gariya.
