TEAM INDIA OWN THE WORLD CUP BY 36 RUNS AT OVAL IN LONDON

Monday, 10 June 2019 05:01 Written by

Bureau,Odishabarta 

New Delhi,09/06/19:Team India beat Australia by 36 runs at Oval in London on Sunday. While India put up a massive score of 352 at the loss of six wickets, they did manage to pack up the Australians for 316. 

Apart from the clinical performance by team India, another highlight of the match was the grand gesture by Virat Kohli that won respect and hearts all over the world. 

Kohli’s Heart-Winning Gesture 

Steve Smith was being booed by Indian fans both while fielding in the deep and later when he came to bat. Kohli stepped up and urged the fans to stop booing and gestured them with folded hands to rather clap for the sporting legend. 

A thankful Smith was later seen shaking hands with Kohli for his gesture.

In a post-match press conference, Kohli said, “Just because there are so many Indian fans here, I don’t want them to set a bad example. He (Smith) didn’t do anything to be booed in my opinion. I felt for him and told him sorry on behalf of the crowd. In my opinion, that’s not acceptable.”

Match Details 

Coming to the match, by beating South Africa at Southampton India had made a statement. But by winning this match with the team collectively performing, team India made their presence felt; albeit a few misfields here and there.

Australia had meanwhile reinforced their persona of a resurgence with two straight wins. And India couldn’t afford to fall behind, their late start in the tournament notwithstanding. 

The Oval was all about batting, Man of the Match Shikhar Dhawan (117 in 109) laid the foundation. Kohli provided the much-needed stability and later Hardik Pandya fulfilling the role of a pinch hitter. Even KL Rahul shunted down in search of quick runs. 

Australian bowlers had to rally around despite having a total that looked good on the board. 

David Warner and Aaron Finch had got Australia off to a start identical to India’s in the first 13 overs until Finch’s run-out. Steve Smith negated the boos that welcomed him with a smart fifty, and even Usman Khawaja had shown some spunk while Glenn Maxwell gave India a scare from the moment he came out and crunched a clean on-drive against India’s best pacer. 

Not backing down from the challenge, Bhuveneswar Kumar (3 wickets), Jasprit Bumrah (3 wickets) and Yuzvendra Chahal (2 wickets) made sure that the wickets fell at regular intervals. 

Though many do not need a reminder that India are top contenders for the coveted World Cup, but this win just ensured why that’s the case.

POST-CARD POLITICS WILL PROVE COSTLY TO EXCHEQUER !!!

POST-CARD POLITICS WILL PROVE COSTLY TO EXCHEQUER: POSTAL DEPARTMENT SHOULD ENSURE NON-DELIVERY OF RUBBER-STAMPED OR PRINTED POST-CARDS AT SUBSIDIZED POSTAL-TARIFF 

New Delhi,06/06/19:Post-card politics has begun between BJP and TMC where BJP will be sending 10 lakh post-cards to West Bengal Chief Minister with message Jai Shriram because of Mamta Banerjee unnecessarily provoked on greeting her with Jai Shriram by BJP workers. Now TMC has decided to counter the move by sending 20 lakh post-cards to Prime Minister Narender Modi with slogans of Jai Hind- Jai Bangla. 

But post-card politics will cost heavily to postal-department because heavily subsidised post-card with postal-tariff of just 50 paise has multiple times the actual operating-cost. It is noteworthy that neither the users of post-card nor even postal-department are aware of the fact that rubber-stamped or printed post-cards have a much higher postal-tariff of rupees six. 

There is a flood of rubber-stamped ordinary post-cards of 50 paise tariff delivered at All India Radio against postal-rules where listeners often send rubber-stamp message to listen any song as their choice just to listen their names on radio-programme for listener-choice of film-songs. Postal-department must not deliver such rubber-stamped post-cards without complete postal-tariff of rupees six for printed and rubber-stamped post-cards. 

Since heavily subsidised post-cards and Inland-Letter-Cards are not being used by common people, these should be discontinued because of being heavily misused firstly for commercial purposes like by chit-fund companies to send reminders and now for political purposes by BJP and TMC.

BSP AND SP PARTING WAYS: ILLOGICAL POLITICAL ALLIANCES SHOULD BE DISCOURAGED

Wednesday, 05 June 2019 04:34 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

New Delhi,05/06/19:It refers to BSP having decided to go alone without alliance with SP in forthcoming by-polls for 11 seats in UP state legislative-assembly, blaming SP supporters not voting for BSP in recently held Lok Sabha elections contested jointly by BSP and SP. 

Likewise JD(U) in Bihar is showing signs of discomfort with BJP alliance when JD(U) declined to accept offered one ministerial post in Union Cabinet followed by expansion of Bihar cabinet without any further addition of BJP quota in state-ministry. Already alliance-government in Karnatak is on ventilator while uncertainity hangs on governments of MP, Rajasthan and Chhatisgarh. 

Alliance-politics is a politics of opportunism where there are some politicians notorious for always joining the side of ruling alliance. With BJP having a very comfortable majority of 303 of its own in Lok Sabha and post-poll breaking up of BSP-SP alliance further bettering its ideology and prospects, massive and consolidated poll-reforms should be done on priority where provision may also the there to do away with politics of opportunism and alliances paving way for ideal two-party system in present democratic form of governance.

उपभोग घटेगा तो बचेगा पर्यावरण

Wednesday, 05 June 2019 04:30 Written by

अंग्रेजी का 'एन्वायरन्मेंट' शब्द, फ्रांसीसी शब्द 'एन्वायरन्स' से विकसित हुआ। पारिस्थितिकीय संदर्भों में 'एन्वायरमेन्ट' शब्द का प्रयोग पहली बार 1956 में हुआ। 20वीं सदी के छठे दशक से पूर्व के किसी संस्कृत-हिंदी ग्रंथ अथवा शब्दकोष में 'पर्यावरण' शब्द का उल्लेख नहीं मिलता। संयुक्त राष्ट्र संघ ने भी विश्व पर्यावरण दिवस हेतु 1972 में पहली बार निर्देशित किया। प्रथम विश्व पर्यावरण दिवस, वर्ष 1974 में मनाया गया। भारत की बात करें तो वर्ष 1985 से पहले भारत में पर्यावरण का अलग कोई मंत्रालय नहीं था; पर्यावरण के नाम पर अलग से कानून नहीं थे। पर्यावरण को एक विषय के रूप  में  पढ़ने की बाध्यता भी सत्र वर्ष 2004-05 से पहले नहीं थी। विरोधाभास देखिए कि पर्यावरण की पढ़ाई बढ़ी; बजट बढ़ा; क़ानून बढ़े; इंतज़ाम बढे़, किंतु पर्यावरण सुरक्षा की गारंटी लगातार घटती जा रही है। क्यों ? क्योंकि शायद हम ऐसा इलाज़ कर रहें; ताकि मर्ज बना रहे, इलाज़ चलता रहे। हम लक्षणों का इलाज कर रहे हैं। पर्यावरणीय क्षरण के मूल कारणों की रोकथाम, हमारी प्राथमिकता बन ही पा रही। 

तापमान में बढोत्तरी का 90 प्रतिशत जिम्मेदार तो अकेले ग्रीन हाउस गैसों के उत्सर्जन को ही माना गया है। हमने वायुमण्डल में कार्बनडाईऑक्साइड की मात्रा इतनी तेजी से बढ़ाई है कि अगले 11 वर्षों के बाद वायुमण्डल भी 'नो रूम' का बोर्ड लटक जाने का अंदेशा पैदा हो गया है। ये नुकसानदेह गैसें, हमारे अतिवादी उपभोग की पूर्ति के लिए की जा रहे उपायों की तो उपज हैं या कुछ और ? हमने धरती से इतना पानी खींच लिया है कि आज भारत के 70 फीसदी भू-गर्भ क्षेत्र पानी की गुणवत्ता अथवा मात्रा के मानक पर संकटग्रस्त श्रेणी में है। हम मिट्टी का इतना दोहन कर चुके हैं कि पिछले कुछ सालों में भारत की 90 लाख, 45 हजार हेक्टेयर खेती योग्य भूमि बंजर हो चुकी है। हमने इतनी हरियाली हड़प कर चुके हैं कि हमारा राष्ट्रीय राजधानी क्षेत्र, रेगिस्तान में तब्दील हो रहा है। हमने उत्पाद और उपयोग की ऐसी शैली अपना ली है कि भारत में आज हर रोज करीब 1.60 लाख मीट्रिक टन कचरा पैदा करने वाला देश हो गया है। हमने हवा में इतना कचरा फेंक रहे हैं कि भारत के सौ से अधिक शहर वायु गुणवत्ता परीक्षा में फेल हो गए और श्वसन तंत्र की बीमारियों से मरने वालों के औसत में भारत, दुनिया का नबंर वन हो गया है। इन परिस्थितियों के मूल कारण क्या हैं


मूल कारण हैं: अतिवादी उपभोग और कम पुर्नोपयोग। अधिक उपभोग यानी प्रकृति का अधिक दोहन, अधिक क्षरण; कम पुर्नोपयोग यानी प्रकृति में अधिक कचरा, अधिक प्रदूषण, अधिक रासायनिक असंतुलन। हमारी अतिवादिता ने प्रकृति से लेने और देने का संतुलन बिगाड़ कर रख दिया है। विषमता यह है कि प्राकृतिक संसाधनों की कुल सालाना खपत का 40 फीसदी वे देश कर रहे हैं, जो जनसंख्या में कुल का मात्र 15 प्रतिशत हैं। बेसमझी यह है कि हम भारतीय भी अधिक उपभोग करने वाले देशों को ही की जीवन-शैली को अपनाने को विकसित ज़िन्दगी और बढ़ावा देने को असली विकास मान रहे हैं। हम भूल गए हैं कि यदि सारी दुनिया, अमेरिकी लोगों जैसी जीवन शैली जीने लग जाये, तो 3.9 अतिरिक्त पृथ्वी के बगैर हमारा गुजारा चलने वाला नहीं।


गौर कीजिए कि सरकारी योजनाएं, लोगों की क्रय शक्ति बढ़ाने में लगी हैं; बाजार और तकनीक विशेषज्ञ, लोगों को सुविधाभोगी बनाने में।   सीजन मेगासेल 'दो के साथ एक फ्री' का  फर ले गए हैं।  नलाइन शाॅपिंग, बिना जरूरत की चीज का खुला आमंत्रण दे रही हैं। बापू बताते रहे कि एक धोती और एक लंगोटी में भी सम्मान संभव है, लेकिन भारत का नया समाज, सम्मान का नया पैमाना ले गया। ज्यादा सम्पत्ति, ज्यादा पैसा, ज्यादा सम्मान। हमने भी 'थाली में आधा खाना, आधा छोड़नाको रईसी का लक्षण समझ लिया है।  गांधी समझाते रहे कि गंगा पास में हो, तो भी उस पर उनका हक सिर्फ और सिर्फ एक लोटे भर का है। वह चेताते रहे कि प्रकृति सभी की जरूरत पूरी कर सकती है, लेकिन लालच एक का भी नहीं; बावजूद इसके शासन अपनी परियोजनाओं में 'अधिकतम संभव दोहन' का शब्दावली ले आया। भूख, पानी, ऊर्जा और रोजगार जैसे संकट के समाधान में भी शासन ने अधिकतम संभव दोहन के ही विकल्प पेश करता रहा है। इस तरह सदुपयोग की जगह अधिकतम उपभोग, हमारा लक्ष्य विचार बन गया है। प्रेमचंद की कहानी 'ईदगाह' में नन्हे हामिद ने खिलौनों से ज्यादा, अम्मी की जरूरत के चिमटे की फिक्र कर बलैंया पाईं। लेकिन हम ऐसे स्वार्थी हो गए हैं कि हमने धरती मां की जरूरतों की चिंता करनी ही बंद कर दी है। हमने भूल गये कि प्राकृतिक संसाधन असीमित हैं। प्राकृतिक संसाधनों पर मानव अकेले का नहीं, हर जीव का हक़ है। उपभोग बढ़ा, तो संसाधनों पर संकट भी बढ़ेगा ही; सो बढ़ रहा है। पर्यावरण नष्ट हो रहा है।

ऐसे में आप प्रश्न उठा सकते हैं, ''तो हम क्या करें ? क्या हम आदिवासियों सा जीवन जीने लग जाएं ??''  जवाब है कि सबसे पहले हम स्वयं से अपने से प्रश्न करें कि यह खोना है कि पाना ? हम, सभी के शुभ के लिए लाभ कमाने की अपनी महाजनी परंपरा को याद करे। हर समस्या में समाधान स्वतः निहित होता है। भारत ने वर्ष 2030 तक 280 मीट्रिक टन कार्बनडाईऑक्साइड  उत्सर्जन की कटौती की घोषणा की है।  कार्बनडाईऑक्साइड  की मात्रा तब घटेगी, जब हम कार्बन उत्पादों की खपत घटायेंगे, कार्बन अवशोषण करने वाली प्रणालियां बढ़ायेंगे। ऐसी प्रणालियां बढ़ाने के लिए कचरा घटाना होगा; हरियाली और नीलिमा बढ़ानी होगी। खपत घटाने के लिए उपभोग कम करना होगा। उत्पाद चाहे खेत में पैदा हो, चाहे फैक्टरी में; बिना पानी, कुछ नहीं बनता। जैसे ही फिजूलखर्ची घटायेंगे; कागज़, बिजली, कपड़ा, भोजन आदि की बर्बादी घटायेंगे; पानी-पर्यावरण दोनो ही बचने लगेंगे।  

एक किलो चावल पैदा करने में 2,000 से 5000 लीटर तक पानी खर्च होता है। हरियाणा सरकार ने पानी की किल्लत से निबटने के लिए किसानों ने धान की खेती छोड़ने का आहृान किया है। उन्हे प्रोत्साहित करने के लिए आर्थिक लाभ और अरहर तथा मक्का के मुफ्त बीज की प्रोत्साहन योजना लाई है। पानी की सर्वाधिक ज़रूरत और खपत, सिंचाई हेतु ही है। यदि पानी कम है, तो वर्षाजल आधारित तथा कम पानी का उत्पादन करें। कम पानी अथवा प्रदूषित पानी होगा, तो औद्योगिक उत्पादन करना भी मुश्किल तथा मंहगा होता जाएगा। लाभ हमारा है, तो हमें खुद पहल करनी चाहिए कि नहीं ? इसके लिए भी हम, सरकार की ओर क्यों ताकें ??

कचरा न्यूनतम उत्पन्न हो, इसके लिए 'यूज एण्ड थ्रो' प्रवृति को हतोत्साहित करने वाले टिकाऊ उत्पाद नियोजित करने चाहिए कि नहीं ? जितनी ज़रूरत उपभोग घटाने की है, उतनी ही प्राथमिकता पुर्नोपयोग बढ़ाने की भी है। गौर कीजिए कि यदि भारत में प्रतिदिन पैदा हो रहे 1.60 लाख मीट्रिक टन कचरे का ठीक से निष्पादन किया जाये, तो इतने कचरे से प्रतिदिन 27 हजार करोङ रुपये की खाद बनाई जा सकती है। 45 लाख एकङ बंजर भूमि उपजाऊ बनाई जा सकती है। 50 लाख टन अतिरिक्त अनाज पैदा किया जा सकता है और दो लाख सिलेंडरों हेतु अतिरिक्त गैस हासिल की जा सकती है; यह करें।

जाहिर है कि जितनी फिजूलखर्ची घटायेंगे, पुर्नोपयोग बढ़ायेंगे; प्राकृतिक संसाधन उतने अधिक बचेंगे। अतः जितनी जरूरत उतना परोसें, उतना खायें, उतना खरीदें। बर्बाद, जरा सा भी करें। सादगी को सम्मानित करें। कम उपभोग को अपनी शान बनायें और पुर्नोपयोग को अपनी आदत। ये चलन, अंततः पृथ्वी के आवरण के हर उस अंश को बचायेंगे, जिसे हम पर्यावरण कहते हैं। भूले नहीं कि पर्यावरण बचेगा, तो ही बचेगी हमारी समृद्धि, आर्थिकी, रोजगार, सेहत और सांसें

PRAGYA THAKUR AND OTHERS NOT TO TAKE SALARY AS MP: AFFORDING MPS SHOULD FOLLOW

Tuesday, 04 June 2019 12:57 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

New Delhi,04/06/19In an era when Lok Sabha members quickly pass bill to increase their salaries often in late hours of evening or night that too without any discussion, it was welcome to note that some newly elected Lok Sabha members like Sadhvi Pragya Thakur and Varun Gandhi have declared that they will not be taking any salary for being Parliamentarian. It is noteworthy that Sadhvi Pragya Thakur even does not come from a rich family.

There are many Parliamentarians who have adequate wealth and income so as not to require their salary-burden as Parliamentarians on public-exchequers. An appeal can be made by Prime Minister to all Parliamentarians not to burden public-exchequer through their salaries and allowances in case they can afford to do so. All such members surrendering their salaries and allowances should be honoured by President of India for motivation of others.

Likewise Parliamentarians having their own residences in Delhi or who can afford without government-accommodation should surrender their right for government-accommodation like was done by Rajya Sabha member Sachin Tendular. Such Parliamentarians should also be publicly honoured by President of India.

MAMTA BANERJEE IS A CHALLENGE BEFORE AMIT SHAH TO TACKLE FOR HER WRONG-DOINGS

Monday, 03 June 2019 04:14 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

New Delhi,02/06/19:It refers to West Bengal Chief Minister provoked badly to act amend react against those raising slogans chanting Jai Shri Ram. Harassment caused to people just for personal anger and annoyance of a political ruler of the state is violation of human rights of affected ones, and ideally cannot be overlooked by Union Home Ministry. But any constitutional action like dissolving state-assembly and imposing President rule in the state for continuous unwarranted attrocies on persons of opposite ideology by the state Chief Minister will make her political martyr which should not be done. 

Therefore tackling West Bengal Chief Minister for her such unlawful deeds is certainly a challenge for new Union Home Minister Amit Shah. One way can be to take such incidents to law of courts preferably at Supreme Court for finality and early decision.

PRATAP SARANGI AN EXAMPLE FOR HIS SIMPLICITY & DEDICATION TO PEOPLE

Friday, 31 May 2019 05:42 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

New Delhi,30/05/19:He lives in a thatched house, rides a bicycle and spends a major portion of his MLA pension to support education of poor children. 

For 64-year-old Pratap Sarangi, who once nurtured the desire to be a monk and lives an austere life, his hard work and dedication to people appear to have earned him a berth in the new Narendra Modi Government.

The BJP leader, who has had a long associating with the Rastriya Swayamsevak Sangh, made his maiden entry to Lok Sabha by winning from Odisha’s Balasore constituency defeating sitting BJD MP and industrialist Rabindra Kumar Jena by 12,956 votes in the recent Lok Sabha polls.

A national executive member of BJP, Sarangi was elected to Odisha Assembly twice in 2004 and 2009 from Nilagiri constituency in Balasore district. He had also contested the 2014 Lok Sabha elections from Balasore constituency but faced defeat.

However, Sarangi’s association with active politics and electoral victories has not affected his lifestyle as he continues to live in a mud and bamboo house and rides a bicycle to most places, even during his earlier poll campaigns. He has dedicated his life to social work and uplift of the poor and lives like an ascetic. 

The first-time parliamentarian, who is being fondly called as ‘Odisha’s Modi’, has already created a buzz in social media where photos show him in his modest house and bathing at the village well. 

A bachelor, Sarangi is said to be spending the major portion of his MLA pension to support education of poor children in his area. 

After graduating from Fakir Mohan College in Balasore, the firebrand leader, who is fluent in Sanskrit, wanted to become a monk of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission but the math encouraged him to engage himself in social work instead. 

Thereafter, he started serving people in and around his village and got associated with RSS and VHP. 

The Balasore MP is credited with opening a number of schools for the poor children in the tribal and remote areas of Mayurbhanj and Balasore districts of the state which were devoid of educational facilities. 

Sarangi has also functioned as the Odisha unit president of Bajrang Dal and spearheaded a movement for the protection of cows. 

In the run up to the recent elections, Sarangi adopted his own style of campaigning, which was in sharp contrast to that of his rivals who had hired professional agencies and campaign managers. 

Sarangi relied on party workers and moved around in an autorickshaw. The newly elected lawmaker is firm that his new status as parliamentarian will not change his lifestyle as he believes in working for the people and serving the country.
