Open letter to Barkha Dutt By Lt Col Darshan Singh Dhillon

10 Feb


Dear Barkha Dutt
Watched you reporting on hanging on Afzal Guru today morning. It was barely an hour of his hanging and was still breaking news. It was really great of you to have called the lawyer of the accused on TV rather then anyone one from victims families waiting for justice since last 11 years.

The lawyer shamelessly declared it strongest violation of human rights and also raising questions on fairness of trail. For those who say that Guru was not given Fair trial should also know that “It was because of the Fair trial by the Indian Judicial system that another accused Prof SAR Geelani who was also convicted was set free by the court”.On behalf of many Indians you did not even defend the human rights of soldiers died defending our parliament whose families were waiting for 11 years. Not even once you asked her how Afzal explored all legal options and delayed the case. My fellow soldiers defused the bomb which did not explode as attackers abandoned it prematurely. Think of the selfless sacrifice of the people defending the parliament. You people still play the clipping of that attack to gain TRP of your channels but forget the human rights of people who died during the course of duty but are most worried about the human right of conspirators and masterminds of such attacks and are very quick to call such people on TV.

You did not even ask once the lawyer that how come if the trail was not fair the second accused was acquitted. Why no human rights for people died in attack and many more died on border after this attack as whole army got deployed overnight on borders. Who is responsible for long wait for justice over 11 years for getting even one person hanged.

I wished you paid some tributes to people who died by the actions of people whose master mind was Afzal guru.
A fellow Indian citizen

Suryanamaskar can do to your body what months of dieting cannot. And it can do to your mind what no spiritual discourse can.Not surprising, the world is going crackers over this ancient yogic tradition of worshipping the rising sun. What with the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Victoria Beckham and Kareena Kapoor endorsing it over gym workouts and bizarre diets.

From improving your posture, strengthening muscles to whittling extra inches around the waist, the benefits of Suryanamaskar are many, provided you adapt it the right way. A set of 12 fixed, cyclic postures define Suryanamaskar which when performed repeatedly at an easy pace can bring a sense of well being, almost immediately. However, those with a heart condition, arthritis or slip-disk, need their doctor’s consent before starting the routine. it is important to get each posture right, for the very essence of this yogic ritual lies in perfecting every move. To say the least, it can be an uphill task for beginners. But our expert-backed warm-up exercises are sure to make Suryanamaskar less strenuous and ever so graceful.

1. Neck: Breathe in while you turn your neck to the right and breathe out as you come back to the starting position. Again, breathe in while turning your neck to the left and breathe out in the centre. Repeat this movement thrice. Rotate your neck first clockwise and then anti-clockwise.

2. Arm and shoulder: Stretch your arms out in front of your chest and move your palms up and down, then sideways. Further on, rotate your fist clockwise and anti-clockwise. To relax your arms, place your palm on your shoulder and move your shoulders first clockwise then anti-clockwise.

3. Knee: Bend forwards with your palms resting on your knees, join your knees and move forwards and backwards. End the routine by rotating your knees clockwise and anti-clockwise.

4. Stomach and back: Interlock your fingers over your chest and slowly raise your hands upwards while you breathe in and stand on your toes. Return to Position 1 as you breathe out. Repeat this cycle three times.

5. Legs and waist: Stretch your legs wide in standing position, touch you left toe with the right hand, then the right toe with the left. Keep your knees straight while you do so. Repeat a few times.

By now your body is suitably warmed up to begin the Suryanamaskar routine.

Posture 1# Stand erect, ideally facing the morning sun. Fold your hands in prayer close to your chest and chant ‘Om Suryadevaya Namah’ thrice.

Posture 2# With your hands together raise your arms up in the air while you breathe in. Bend over backwards forming an arch from the hands to your feet. The flexibility of the spine is ensured in this posture.

Posture 3# Bring your hands down while you breathe out to touch the floor on either side of your feet. In this posture, it is imperative to keep your knees straight as you bend forward from the waist, and your head as close as possible to the knee. This posture helps melt the excess fat around the stomach by aiding digestion.

Posture 4# While breathing in, put your hands flush with the floor and lower your hips and stretch your left leg back, allowing it to balance on your toes, and your right leg bent in a crouching stance. With your hands firmly on the ground and your arms straight as a die, raise your head upwards to face the sky. This one is for the flexibility of spine and leg muscles, and boosts immunity from diseases.

Posture 5# As you breathe out, let your hands stay firmly on the ground and push your right leg back parallel to the left. Make sure your feet firmly touch the ground and your hip raised high. With your arms and knees straight lower your head to face your navel.

Posture 6# Hold your breath as you bring your hips down while keeping your hands and feet in the same position, and stretch your whole body near the floor. With your face downward, bring your chest and knees to lightly brush the floor, and hold your hips slightly high. At this juncture, 8 points of your body are touching the floor – your palms, forehead, chest, knees and toes.

Posture 7# This posture is a mere extension of Posture 6, in that you breathe in and straighten your arms and lift your chest upward in an arching stance, and your head thrown back facing the sky. Your arms, at this point, carry the weight of your body, with you knees and toes resting on the floor.

Posture 8# Bring your body back to Posture 5 by raising your hips and lowering your chest and head. Keep your arms and knees straight while you do so, and place your feet flush with the floor. Then lower you head to face your navel.
Posture 9# As you breathe in, return to a similar position as Posture 4, only this time you will be crouching on the left knee and stretching back your right leg. Place your hands firmly on the ground, and with the weight of your body on your arms move your chest forward and arch your head up to face the sky.

Posture 10# From here, flow back to Posture 3 while keeping your hands flush with the floor and bringing your right foot side by side with your left one. As you straighten your knee, raise your back to arch in a standing position with your head as close as possible to the knee and your hands on either side of your feet.

Posture 11# Take a deep breathe and raise your arms up in the air as you straighten your back and gradually bend over backwards, akin to Posture 2. Your knees stay straight all the while.

Posture 12# Bring yourself to Posture 1 from here with your hands folded before your chest in prayer, and your spine erect, your knees straight and your eyes shut in meditation.

With Posture 12 you complete one full circle of Suryanamaskar. From here you can flow back to Posture 2 to continue the routine. However, always follow up your Suryanamaskar regime with Savasana, better known as Corpse Pose. In this posture, you lay down on the floor with your legs and arms apart, your palms facing the sky, and eyes deep shut. Breathe in and out heavily and try to focus your thoughts on something happy. Stay on this way for a few minutes and you will feel a sense of calm run down your body like a drug.

Weight loss is just one consequence; you can so much as put your life together with this ancient yogic tradition.

Why people are asking for TELANGANA?

27 Jan

Why people are asking for TELANGANA?

Whenever the topic of Telangana is raised, many of us blindly support Andhra or Telangana based on where we come from. Not sure how many really think of why the demand for separate state has been there for such a long time. The 2 major reasons why the demand has been pending for so many years is WATER AND HYDERABAD.

People around the state have earned and invested in and around Hyderabad so there is a concerns about the safety of the investment,

if the state is separated while both the major rivers in our state flow mostly through Telangana.

Below are some facts that are few reasons for the demand. Sentiments can be foolish but not facts.

>> There are 10 districts in Telangana, 9 in Andhra and 4 in Rayalaseema. Out of these 7 districts in Telangana, 3 in Andhra and 1 in Rayalaseema are considered severely backward districts which means 70% of districts in Telangana are backward while in Andhra it is 35% and in Rayalaseema it is 25%. Apart from these there are some areas in all parts of the state which are also backward.

>> About 45% of the Andhra Pradesh state income comes from Telangana region. When it comes to utilization of funds, the share of Telangana is only 28%.

>> Normally canals are dug to supply water to the crops from rivers for cultivation. The amount of land cultivated through canals in just Guntur district is more than the total land cultivated with canals in entire Telangana region.

>> Nagarjuna sagar dam is built in Nalgonda District which is in Telangana but majority of the water from the dam is used for Krishna and Guntur district. The original dam was supposed to be build much ahead of its present location but the location was changed so that it falls in the Telangana region. Due to the construction of the dam several hectares of Lime stone mines vanished as part of the dam back waters. Everyone know that lime stone is used for producing cement. Even the natural resources were not allowed to remain.

>> Fluorinated water problem is only in Nalgonda district which has not been resolved since decades.

>> Two major Rivers Krishna and Tungabhadra enter the state of AP in the district of Mahaboobnagar (the biggest district in Telangana). But, the district always remains the worst draught hit areas along with Anantapur because there is no project and process with which the water can be utilized. The plans for utilization has been pending for decades.

>> RDS (Rajolibanda Diversion Scheme) is build in Mahaboobnagar to provide water to 85000 hectares of land in the district. The leaders of Rayalaseems blasted the gates of RDS and water is supplied to KC (Kurnool-Cudapah) canal while only remaining water, if any, is supplied to the lands in Mahaboobnagar.

>> 3 TMC of water from Gandipet is sufficient to supply drinking water to our city. Every year 1700 TMC of water is wasted and is flown into Bay of Bengal from river Godavari. Starting from Nizambad to Bay of Bengal there is no project allowed to build on Godavari. If it is built leaders in Godavari districts fear that the fertile lands in the area may fall short of water. If the Godavari water is utilized properly, there will be no scarcity for food grains in our state.

>> In Telangana regions, only few areas cultivate one crop a year and very rarely two crops a year while most of the land doesn’t even cultivate single crop. In both the Godavari districts, Krishna and Guntur district, two crops a year is common and there are times where even 3 crops a year are cultivated. The only reason is WATER.

>> Government issue G.O.’s for implicating its decisions. G.O number 610 is the longest non implicated G.O in the history of AP. The G.O was issued in 1986 by late NTR who was then the CM of AP, which is not yet implicated. The G.O speaks about the share of Telangana employees in Government jobs in Telangana region.

>> 33% of the population in Mahaboobnagar district have left the district for livelihood to different parts of the state due to draught and majority of them are working as daily labour. No other district has so many people who fled the home place due to lack of livelihood and working as daily labour.

>> Dairy development corporation of AP purchases milk from farmers across the state for distribution. For the same milk, in Andhra, the government pay Rs. 24 to the farmers and in Telangana they pay Rs. 22 per litre. Partiality is shown even in milk purchase.

>> In between 2005-2008 government sold lands worth Rs. 20000 crores in and around Hyderabad which was utilized to build projects in Rayalaseema and Andhra.

>> Not even a single project was completed in Telangana in the last few years while several projects were completed in Andhra and Rayalaseema.

Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (MIM) gives Anti National speech again, Now speaking against The Mahatma.

19 Jan

Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (MIM) gives Anti National speech again, Now speaking against The Mahatma.

Even as the hate speech by Akbaruddin Owaisi is still afresh in public memory, yet another MLA of the Majlise- Ittehadul Muslimeen, Syed Ahmed Pasha Qadri, has come into the sights of the law by allegedly making a statement dishonouring Mahatma Gandhi. His remarks about Mahatma Gandhi’s statue inside the state assembly are Anti National.

‘’kiski baap ka building (Assembly) and kisku laake bithaya” (whose building was it and who have they brought and installed there) during a speech in Jagtial. By this he meant The Nizams built the state assembly building in Hyderabad, but see what has happened. They have installed a statue of Mahatma Gandhi there. Who constructed it and who has been installed there? . Quadri, who represents Charminar in the assembly, told a gathering in Karimanagar district’s Jagityal town on Thursday.

He said “we” have built all significant structures in India. “What have you done?” he asked. “We constructed Red Fort, Taj Mahal, Qutub Minar, Mecca Masjid and Charminar. What have you constructed in Hindustan?”. Qaudri accused the state government of targeting MIM and framing his fellow party legislator, Akbaruddin Owaisi, jailed for alleged hate speeches.

A few organizations protested Quadri’s speech as BJP’s Jagityal unit, lodged the complaint and submitted a CD of his speech as it went viral on Facebook and YouTube. They also attached a CD of the MLA’s speech with their complaint. But, Jagtial circle inspector M Kiran Kumar said the police are taking legal opinion on the matter and have already informed their higher ups.
‘’We will register a case, once we get the go ahead from both our higher officials and legal advisors,’’ he said. “We received a complaint and are seeking legal opinion about it,” ASP B Rajeshwari told. Sources said police were collecting information about the MLA’s speech from the district’s Special Branch and would take a decision on registering a case against Quadri accordingly. A similar complaint against the MLA was lodged with the Karimnagar Two Town police station also.

Taking exception to the disparaging remarks against Mahatma Gandhi, government chief whip and Sangareddy MLA T Jayapraksh Reddy said the comments amount to an insult of every Indian.He demanded an unconditional apology to the nation to by Qadri and accused the MIM of trying to get political mileage by making provocative statements hurting the feelings of people at large.

Ananda Thinks :: “I personally think Quadri’s speech was planned and designed to revive memories of Nizam’s rule, the old Hyderabad state and Razakar Movement, which is bound to strike a chord with the region’s Muslims. But his ‘us and them’ rhetoric is dangerous. His speech is likely to anger all sections of civilized society. Such leaders must be condemned openly by both Hindus and Muslims. United they must demand for a suspension of such legislator who has no respect towards the Mahatma. Police must not think much and act as soon as possible.and Shri Jaya Prakash reddy (Urf : Jagga Reddy),Sir, apology is not enough. Because, these people are working with communal intent. I personally, Request you to intervene in this matter and take this to the notice of the speaker.”


Hina Rabbani – if you have any idea of history you would call Pakistan War Mongering.

Hina Rabbani – if you have any idea of history you would call Pakistan War Mongering.

Madam Hina Rabbani :: if you have any idea of history you wouldn’t have said this,so, lets review it for you madam,

Indo-Pakistani War of 1947:
The war started in October 1947 when it was feared by the Pakistan that Maharajah of the princely state of Kashmir and Jammu might accede to India. Tribal forces from Pakistan attacked and occupied the princely state, resulting in Maharajah signing the Agreement to the accession of the princely state to India.

Indo-Pakistani War of 1965:
This war started following Pakistan’s Operation Gibraltar, which was designed to infiltrate forces into Jammu and Kashmir to precipitate an insurgency against rule by India.The war concluded after diplomatic intervention by the Soviet Union and USA and the subsequent issuance of the Tashkent Declaration.

Indo-Pakistani War of 1971:
The war was unique in that it did not involve the issue of Kashmir, but was rather precipitated by the crisis created by the political battle between Leaders of East Pakistan and leaders of West Pakistan brewing in erstwhile East Pakistan culminating to the declaration of Independence of Bangladesh from the state system of Pakistan. India intervened in the ongoing Bangladesh liberation movement. After a large scale pre-emptive strike by Pakistan, full-scale hostilities between the two countries commenced. Within two weeks of intense fighting, Pakistani forces in East Pakistan surrendered to the joint command of India and Bangladesh forces following which the People’s Republic of Bangladesh was created.

Indo-Pakistani War of 1999 or Kargil War:
Commonly known as Kargil War, this conflict between the two countries was mostly limited. Pakistani troops along with Kashmiri insurgents infiltrated across the Line of Control (LoC) and occupied Indian territory mostly in the Kargil district. The Pakistani government believed that its nuclear weapons would deter a full-scale escalation in conflict but India launched a major military campaign to flush out the infiltrators.Due to Indian military advances and increasing foreign diplomatic pressure, Pakistan was forced to withdraw its forces back across the LoC.

Now History proves that Pakistan is a War Mongering Nation.If u need more info please google it…you will find who initiated peace process and who supported terrorist organisations.

Great Blog,Great work,Superb article…Hats off!

Arise Bharat

The recent public protests and media debates around rising crime in India have been, as expected, quite superficial. They hardly go into the root of the issue – because the protesting layman is only concerned about his safety and not roots of the problem, and the media is not equipped with the understanding of Hindu society, its outlook, its workings, its problems or solutions. So when people cannot talk of the source of problem or solution, easy way is to make noise and divert attention. While media appeared to be honest in the first couple weeks, its true colors came out nonetheless – trying to blame the “retrograde” Hindutva folks for “not being able to digest” woman’s empowerment in the “evolving” world culture, giving publicity to distorted statements of popular leaders etc.

But as we discussed in the previous write up, the problem is not limited to assaults on women…
