People of comfortable wants are leading their life with hankering of luxurious amusement, but due to lack of scope they are compromised with their hankering tend. People of existential needs are larger part of population; nationally and internationally. Economically basic things for life and growth are food, cloth and shelter. Consumption of more and rich food, cloth and shelter will help to produce more various productions and services, and invite continuous transaction of products and services nationally and globally. Therefore, vital cause of recession is less purchasing power of various products and services as well as less hankering towards comfortable wants and luxurious amusement of larger part of population.

Now it is challenge for attraction intelligent governing people of any country to improve the purchasing capacity as well as inspire to hankering for comfortable wants amongst people of existential needs. Some steps for improving the purchasing capacity as well as inspire to hankering for comfortable wants amongst people of existential needs are cited below.

3-Teachers would inspire students to become one-man entrepreneur or create employee management system industry amongst students for engagement.Governemnt would frame the law accordingly.

4-Peachers of all communities would reform the wallows towards comfortable wants and inspire for improving living standard in term of birthright of every one.

THE PROCESS OF DECLASSIFICATION OF NETAJI FILES SHALL BEGIN ON 23RD JANUARY ’2016: PM MODIPosted by; Orissabarta

NEW DELHI (14 Oct '15) After the success of the hard pressed focused campaign put up by a few family members of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, a few researchers and a few social activists the CM of West Bengal declassified 64 Netaji Files on 18 September '15. The same has escalated the pressure on the Govt. of India to declassify nearly 130 files sitting with them since the past 70 odd years. Realizing the pressure and the mood of the nation, PM Modi invited nearly 50 members , 35 from the Bose family & 15 others associated with the declassification of Netaji Files movement.

The meeting began at 5pm as scheduled but overshot the culmination time. No media was allowed to cover the meeting inside 7 RCR. However, the atendees of the same on their way out of the PM's residence spoke to journalists and conveyed that the PM very patiently gave them a good hearing. Chandra Bose the grand nephew of Netaji conveyed to this reporter that the PM is open to the declassification of Netaji files and had assured that the processes of the same shall begin next year on the birth anniversary of Netaji which is 23rd of Jan.

Anuj Dhar noted researcher on Netaji was also a part of the contingent and said that he was very optimistic with the PM's assurance.

THE PROCESS OF DECLASSIFICATION OF NETAJI FILES SHALL BEGIN ON 23RD JANUARY ’2016: PM MODI

Suparno Satpathy the noted socio-political leader of Odisha, a lead member of the declassification of Netaji files movement and the Chairman of SNSMT could not make it to Delhi to be a part of today's meeting with the PM. However, his appeal was isolatedly conveyed to the PM that full transparency should be maintained while declassifing the files with the PMO, unlike what had been witnessed during the declassification of 64 files in Kolkata, where one file out of the 64 declassified files only had its folder and no documents in it. Suparno Satpathy has long being flagging his strong suspicion that the names of a few like Late Biju Patnaik were being protected due to current day political compulsions.

Chitra Bose the niece of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose said that it was an honor for the bose family and associates of the Netaji movement as Narendra Modi was the first PM to invite us & discuss the declassification of Netaji files. She also said that she is extremly impressed with PM Modi.

In Memories Of An Immortal Soul

Saturday, 09 December 2017 12:17 Written by

IN MEMORIES OF AN IMMORTAL SOULContributed by; Ms.Ananya Priyadarshini

Today is ‘World Students’ Day’. Way back in 2010, on the eve of 79th birth anniversary of India’s former President and the legendary scientist Late Dr. Abul Pakir Jainulabdin Abdul Kalam, UNO declared his birthday, 15th October as ‘World Students’ Day’, keeping in mind his contribution in the field of science and his affection for students. It is an honour to the great man and a topic of pride for every Indian.

Dedicating his birthday for the student mass of whole world is quite apt. He is famous as ‘People’s President’. The Missile Man’. He too, is well known as a policy-maker, a philosopher, an educationalist, an ideal leader, a widely appreciated writer and last but not the least, an excellent human being. And that, he was very good as a student, is another interesting aspect of his personality. The foundation of his strong character was laid in his student life only. His father was his first teacher, whose moral lessons sowed the seed of spirituality in his little mind. Though not very highly educated, he was a helpful fellow with deep faith in God. He had equal respect for every religion. “In his own time, in his own place, in what he really is, and in the stage he has reached- good or bad- every human being is a specific element within the whole of the manifest divine Being. So, why be afraid of difficulties, sufferings and problems? When troubles come try to understand the relevance of your sufferings. Adversities always presents opportunities for introspection.”- his father used to say. And these golden words of him used to strengthen him during the hard times of life.

While he was studying in Rameshwaram Elementary School, his science teacher was Mr. Shivasubramania Iyer. He belonged to an orthodox Hindu Brahmin family, his better half being very conservative. But he was strongly determined to break the irrelevant social barriers. He, despite of his wife’s strict opposition had once invited a Muslim boy like Kalam to his home for a meal. He himself had served him as well as ate with him inside his kitchen. Later his wife’s mind changed and she too, like her husband whole-heartedly supported Kalam’s entry into the kitchen. This epic step of his teacher was unforgettable in Kalam’s part and after this event he strongly practised secularism throughout his life.

During his schooling at Ramanathapuram, Dr. Kalam had built up strong bondage with his teacher Mr. Iyadurai Solomon. “To succeed in life and achieve result, you must understand and master three mighty forces- desire, belief and expectation.” And “With faith, you can change your destiny”-these worthy statements of him boosted his confidence up and compelled him to believe in his capabilities.


He came across three teachers, namely Prof. Sponder, Prof. KAV Pandalai and Prof. Narasingha Rao, who taught him the technical subjects of Aeronautical Engineering. They had played an important role in orienting efficiently the thinking of young Kalam. Even in his professional career at ISRO and DRDO his ‘Gurus’ had guided him throughout. Prof. Vikram Sarabhai, who had trusted his talent and had always encouraged him to keep moving ahead on the path of making new inventions. Dr. Brahma Prakash, who supported him after failure of SLV-3 and did not let him shatter anyway,.

Even after reaching the peak of success he never did deny the significance of role played by individual teacher in his life. In many of his lectures and books he has mentioned them and their valuable words. At every decisive turn of his journey from a general Tamil boy to a world famous personality, he had met a ‘Guru’ through whom Lord showed him the right path. Unhesitatingly he has accepted that the faith and blessings of his teachers is his ultimate source of inspiration.

In reality, he had remained a student all through his life. He was always eager to learn, no matter from whom. He did never letego to create a hindrance in the process of learning. In all his projects he had encouraged active participation of students from IIT, IISc, Jadavpur University etc. and had handed them over many important responsibilities. He had recruited several young scientists and engineers at ISRO and DRDO. Through his far sight he could visualise the immense talent and tremendous possibilities hidden in Indian youth, particularly the student mass. He used to free himself from his busy schedule and spend time with students of schools and colleges. He tried to arouse in them the interest for scientific research. He motivated them not to go abroad just for the sake of money, instead make new inventions and discoveries in their motherland. He wanted research to prosper in India. He always worked for the development of infrastructures in India that would lead to rise of number of efficient scientists. Who would take Indian scientific research work to a level where, no any developed nation would dare to underestimate its power. Who would achieve new heights and add new chapters of inventions to the glorious history of Indian science. He dreamt of a secured India, a strong India, a self-sufficient India. And had tried to communicate this dream to the eyes of ‘students’ at all level.

Unfortunately, the sad demise of this great man took place in the recent past. It was not merely the end of a life, but of an era. But death can only destroy the earthly body! Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam is a ‘thought’, which is still alive in numerous inquisitive minds. The epic of his hardwork, dedication and patriotism is an inexhaustive source of inspiration for all countrymen. Every book authored by him is a milestone. His dreams were limitless. A lifetime fell short to fulfil them. He departed leaving behind several unanswered questions, several unaccomplished goals, the responsibility of completing which he placed on the dependable shoulders of the student mass. A bright star in the sky of science set. Whether any other star with such glow would ever arise again, is a matter of time. But undoubtedly, the numerous tiny stars on the verge of emergence can drive the darkness away.

Regressive Or Progressive: British Era ‘District Gazetteers’ Might Soon Be Back In India

REGRESSIVE OR PROGRESSIVE: BRITISH ERA ‘DISTRICT GAZETTEERS’ MIGHT SOON BE BACK IN INDIAPosted by;Orissabarta

BHUBANESWAR:From a letter of ‘Department of Personnel & Training Officer’ D.N Misra, sent to the states, did I get to learn that the pre independence ‘District Gazetteers’ might be in for a revival. The said letter distinctively reads ‘I am directed to say that Prime Minister’s Office has desired that information related to District Gazetteer may be furnished.

During the British raj in India, ‘District Gazetteers’ was a document maintained at the district level for geographic, economic, social & cultural records. The same fell into disuse after India attained its independence. The ‘District Gazetteers’ was first initiated by the ‘East India Company’ in year 1803.

In the coming days many might find this revival attempt by PM Narendra Modi as being regressive and many will vehemently defend it as being progressive. I might not be a diehard Modi fan but for this I feel it is a good step. Many who have been following me will be astonished with this statement from me. Yes, I am an ardent advocate of de-centralization and this attempt of the PMO to interfere at district level bypassing the federal structure certainly seems adverse to my advocacy but never the less I still feel it is a good step. We might spend billions of rupees in publicizing the ‘Swach Bharat Abhiyan’ but the way of life in India as on date is that we have filth all around us. Similarly, idealistically I wish to have de-centralization of power to attain true democracy but the way of life as on date in India is that we have a heavy centralized rule. Reality is that our Nation moves on three nodal points DM, CM & PM.

REGRESSIVE OR PROGRESSIVE: BRITISH ERA ‘DISTRICT GAZETTEERS’ MIGHT SOON BE BACK IN INDIA

I do not know if the revival of the ‘District Gazetteers’ will actually withstand the storm of political adversaries of PM Modi and finally come to conclusion but should this happen it shall map a lot of details enabling a swifter delivery of PM Modi’s vision document. However, I must clarify here that I do not fully endorse the vision exhibited in the past 500 odd days by the 'Modi Sarkar' thus one might feel that this mapping will enable the play of the flawed? Yes, possibly, but never the less the districts, the states and the nation will have a concrete record to assess & deliver. We must not forget the British rule or miss rule whatever you choose to be with, even in those days, with no modern day transportation, communication etc. had a much stronger delivery system than that of the present day. India was much more fragmented & much more plural in those days but that did not stop the British to effectively deliver ‘their’ agendas. Well there is no harm in accepting that the ‘District Gazetteer’ was a strong tool responsible for the said.

The Maratha Barracks

THE MARATHA BARRACKS:Last Surviving Relic of  Odisha’s Renaissance Age

By;Anil Dhir

Cuttack 1 April :The Maratha Barracks are one of the oldest  surviving edifice of Cuttack about which very few are aware of. Today, they house the 6th Battalion of the Odisha State Armed Police, tucked away at one corner of the city.

According to historian Anil Dhir, the Maratha administration of Odisha effectively began from 1751. RaghojiBhonslebecame the master of the territory and a new system of government was put into operation. They divided Odisha into two broad political divisions, the Mughalbandi and the Garhjatareas.The Maratha rule in Odisha was for a brief period of half a century,however it had a lasting effect of the socio-economic development. They introduced proper land records, translated many classical Odia texts, and persuaded many Kings, Queens and rich Zamindars to endow lands to the Jagannath and other temples. Under the Marathas, Odisha enjoyed a simple judicial and revenue system.

The Marathas, being Hindus, repaired and restored the temples that had been destroyed by the Mughals and Afghans.  The worship of Lord Jagannath at Puri received special attention, and a number of villages and lands were assigned to the temple to meet the expenses of the rituals and ceremonies. The internal stability, peace and security during the Maratha rule attracted pilgrims from Bengal, Benares, Rajasthan and the Central Provinces to Puri.

Anil Dhir, who has researched the Old Jagannath Sadak for INTACH, says that it was the Marathas who improved the communication in their territory. The Jagannath Sadak connected Bengal with Puri and passed through Midnapore, Balasore, Jajpur, and Bhadrak and entered Cuttack.The road was made into a highway, bridges and ghats were made. The Marathas had builtserais, mutts and temples all along the road. They dug wells and ponds for the pilgrims and gaverent-free lands grantsto Brahmins.

The Maratha Barracks were built soon after the occupation. Rajaram Pandit started the work in 1775 and it was completed by Sadasiva Rao in 1793. Spread across a vast patch of forest land on the outskirts of the city, the place was infested by tigers, panthers, snakes and other wildlife. The forest was cleared except for some ancient trees, which are still standing tall. The domed structures were solidly built with local materials. Kiln baked bricks and lime mortar was used. There were big wells in the compound and underground cells. Separate stables for their horses and elephants, magazines for storing gunpowder, living quarters etc. were made. The barracks housed the artillery, cavalry and infantry forces. The Marathas had as many as 2,000 soldiers in the barracks. There was a thick wall around with watch towers, none of which now exist.

The East India Company was aware of the strategic position of Odisha, situated as the land between their emerging power in Bengal and Madras. On the 17th December 1803, RaghojiBhonsle II signed the Treaty of Deogaon and handed over the reins of the province of Cuttack to the East India Company.After the Maratha forces abandoned the barracks, they were occupied by the Englishmen. However the Company officials built houses near the Barabati Fort and shifted the troops to the centre of the city. During the Great Famine of 1866, the barracks were used to store food grains. Later the barracks were used as stables. Dhir says that a race course was made inside the compound and regular Sunday races were held. The few Englishmen in Cuttack even had fox hunts in the place.The East India Irrigation Company used it while they were working on the canals in the region.

Half a dozen rows of the old barracks were torn down a few years ago because of structural instability. However, one continuous row of 70 rooms still exists and is being used by the OSAP as their headquarters. There are huge manicured lawns and a parade ground where ceremonial parades are held. Many of the old louvered doors and windows have been replaced with newer ones, but one can still see the holes in the walls forthe punkahs strings that were pulled by the orderlies. Many of the small alcoves in the walls that were used to keep the lamps have been made over.

Amiya Bhusan Tripathy, the former Director General of Police and Convener of INTACHis of the opinion that the Maratha barracks should be converted into a museum. During his stint as the State’s Police Chief, a Police Museum had been set up in Cuttack with many interesting displays.However it was soon shut down and has remained closed for years. The barracks are one of the last original remaining structures and a unique example of the synthesis of Maratha and Odishan architecture.

Hindus to seek Bhagavad-Gita

Hindus to seek Bhagavad-Gita monuments if Oklahoma House Bill 2177 becomes law

 

By;Rajan Zed

Posted by;Odishabarta

 

USA:Hindus would seek erecting monuments with verses from ancient Sanskrit scripture Bhagavad-Gita ((Song of the Lord) in public buildings and on public grounds in Oklahoma, if House Bill 2177 becomes the law.

 

Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, said that Bhagavad-Gita was a “historically significant document”, “recognized throughout the world” and was a “treasure that should be displayed in public buildings and on public grounds” in the form of monuments/tablets carrying its verses.

 

To start with, Hindus would seek to place the Bhagavad-Gita monuments/tablets in various Oklahoma public universities and colleges; city halls of Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Norman and Broken Arrow; Myriad Botanical Gardens in Oklahoma City, Woodward Park in Tulsa; etc.; after the Bill becoming the law; Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, indicated.

 

Various well-known Americans; including essayist-philosopher Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), theoretical physicist credited with being the “father of the atomic bomb” J. Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967), novelist-philosopher Aldous Huxley (1894-1963), essayist-poet Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), theoretical physicist Albert Einstein (1879-1955), etc.; were reportedly influenced by Bhagavad-Gita. It had inspired, fascinated, touched and impacted millions of readers worldwide over the centuries; Rajan Zed noted.

 

This philosophical and intensely spiritual poem Bhagavad-Gita considers the nature of action, the religious and social duty, the human relationship to God, the means of liberation, and the nature of sacrifice, etc.; Zed adds.

 

Rajan Zed further said that awareness about other religions thus created by such displays of verses from Bhagavad-Gita in Oklahoma schools-colleges-universities would make students of the state well-nurtured, well-balanced, and enlightened citizens of tomorrow.

 

Hinduism is oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion adherents and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal. There are about three million Hindus in USA.

 

Mary Fallin is the Governor of Oklahoma, also known as Sooner State, which Lonely Planet described as “a place with deep Native American significance”. Over 25 Native American languages are reportedly spoken in Oklahoma.

Number of Canadians holding favorable view of Hinduism increases

By;Rajan Zed,USA

Forty-nine percent of Canadians had a favorable opinion of Hinduism in February 2017 as compared to 42% in September 2013, according to Religious Trends public opinion poll conducted by research organization Angus Reid Institute (ARI) and released on April four.

Quebecers having favorable opinion of Hinduism increased to 50% in 2017, as compared to 32% in 2009; while in rest-of-Canada, it increased from 45% in 2009 to 48% in 2017; poll indicated.

When asked—would it be acceptable or unacceptable to you if one of your children were to marry a Hindu—in February 2017, 54% Canadians said that it would be acceptable, as compared to 37% in September 2013; poll pointed out.

Fifty-seven percent of Canadian Liberal Party members and 54% Millennials (18-34) viewed Hinduism favorably, as compared to 49% of all Canadians; poll added.

Meanwhile distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, congratulating the Canadian Hindu community on climbing higher on the favorable opinion scale; urged them to continue with the traditional values of hard work, higher morals, stress on education, sanctity of marriage, etc.; amidst so many distractions.

Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, advised Hindus to focus on inner search, stay pure, explore the vast wisdom of scriptures, make spirituality more attractive to youth and children, stay away from the greed, and always keep God in the life.

Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about one billion adherents, and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal.

ARI, headquartered in Vancouver (Canada), “is a national, not-for-profit, non-partisan public opinion research organization established to advance education”.  Dr. Angus Reid is the Chairman, while Shachi Kurl is Executive Director.
