Proud to be Fearlessly cheap-Khap leaders.....

In an effort to shield their rapist sons and all other relatives…. Leaders of “khap panchayat” in Haryana opposed the demand of death penalty to rapists. http://www.ndtv.com/article/india/khaps-oppose-death-penalty-for-rapists-311434

 

Misuse of tough laws (as if they themselves never misused their power):

These local leaders of village fear is that this new (tough) law will be misused, but how can their cheap brain forget about the misuse of power by their sons/relatives? It is an open fact in such villages that son of these khap leaders have tasted (raped) almost every woman in the village.

Victims and their family are forced to remain silent bcoz of fear of getting isolated and molested by these powerful village leaders. When these khap leaders misuse their power… that is not wrong. But if government will toughen laws….. then that will be wrong… What a cheap statement, and such cheapos call themselves leaders only bcoz they have money, power, authority, and goons to torture and terrify weak villagers.

 

Change cloths of women (don’t question mentality of men):

Instead of changing the mentality of men….. these leaders say that Government should change cloths of women. Women are treated like slaves in villages and instead of teaching men how to respect a woman… these leaders want government to make a law to legalize early marriage of girl child. Everybody in India knows that these village leaders do not approve educating the girl child, reason?? Reason is that an educated girl will become more wise (powerful) than a male in the family. According to these illiterate khap leaders…. A family should be ruled by  a male only, and all females in the family are his slaves.

 

Husband is god for a woman:

Alcohol is used as much as water by these men, they drink everyday… and after drinking they take out their frustration (or relax themselves) by raping their wife every time she refuses. These type of incidents where husband is forcing his wife (rapes) for sex is completely normal and legal thing. As per the suggestion of early marriage of girl child….. these local leaders are virtually raping the childhood of all females. Khap leaders are openly supporting the animal-like mentality of men by asking government to ban clothing of women, Hope u can understand the kind of trauma those little (married) girls will be facing if this Early Marriage (khap) suggestion is implemented by government. With such suggestion: khap leaders are feeding the animal mentality of their young men by (legally) providing young girls (early marriage), and then those animals will be raping a young girl’s tender brain every day and night.

 

I tried to ignore the mentality of these old local village leaders…. But they are forcing me to stop being stupid…. They are saying: It’s time to open ur eyes and use the wisdom I have gained with education. Now I hate them…. All.

India: Converting to Cheap country.

Ban skirts and Jeans…..

Breaking all barriers of shame, cheapness, and stupidity……. Local head of villages, few uneducated Ministers, and a handful of Fame-Hungry powerful men are demanding for a “Ban” on wearing skirts/jeans by women in India.

My personal advice to all female Tourists is to make a VERY SERIOUS note of this ban. But…. On the other hand… wearing proper cloths will NOT save u from getting “raped in India” (precisely New Delhi).

If u r a woman…. presently in India…. Then be ready to get raped… anytime, anywhere, for any number of days, and by any number of men.

If u’re a woman who don’t enjoy getting raped and killed, then Plz don’t come to India.

 

List of cloths banned for women in India:

http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/bareilly-college-bans-jeans-for-girls-students-demand-explanation/1/214431.html

 

Seeing these news pouring-in every day, it looks like India is heading towards its biggest and most shocking “Conversion”. A biased country full of cheap mentality men calling themself as citizens of Biggest Democratic Country….. is getting converted into a country with Cheap mentality, where all restrictions are made for women. Men here are responsible for “Making sure that women follow all restrictions”, and if somebody makes mistake in following restrictions…. Then Rape her, and implement few more (new) restrictions.

 

Men/guys here are allowed to nurture ANY TYPE of ANIMAL-LIKE MENTALITY, but a woman here should not wear skirt/jean……. India is turning into (What type of) a Fuk’n “Democratic Country” ….

 

Ashamed Indian,

So u were proud to be Indian? Now what?

Being a male myself.. I must be another unfortunate 1 who had a closest view of “Animal-like” behavior of Indian men. Their thinking, their excuses, their cheapness (towards women), their mean thoughts, their sex maniac secrets (and they’re proud of it). No matter how educated they are, no matter how good their parents are, no matter how properly they r taught about Indian culture…. A common thing today is that all Men/Guys now-a-days look at a woman like a dog is looking at a piece of flesh. If u carefully observe the expressions of a guy looking at girl (in public)…. U can literally see their tongue hanging from his eyes, as it they have learned to lick from eyes and now they are on full-practice.

Shamefully….. but it’s a fact that Indian Men have become cheaper and most unethical creature alive on this earth I ever know of. I request everybody to be aware of an Indian male on internet, most probably he is another dog with two legs. They don’t even know the basic difference between compliments and flirting, they can’t give anything more than a F’ed up future.

I wish if I can safeguard my ethics, and may god give me enough of strength to carry forward everything (Indian Culture) I’ve got from my parents. Ohh lord…. Why the “F” I have to bear the insult of being an Indian? If u can’t finish them, then plz take me outta here.

Headlines Today exposes how unsafe Delhi is for women

"Any woman on the streets is fair game": India's shame

Associated Press | Updated: December 21, 2012 00:45 IST

New DelhiIt is almost every Indian woman's nightmare, lived daily when in public - a stream of obscene comments, unwanted hands being placed on them and then being blamed for causing the sexual violence.

The gang-rape and beating of a 23-year-old student by six men on a bus in New Delhi may have sparked days of protests and demands for authorities to take tougher action, but for women in India it is just an extreme example of what they have to live with.

Many in India's capital and across the country say they are constantly on guard, fearing everything from the routine gropings they suffer on public buses to far more violent assaults. Some say they have structured their entire lives around protecting themselves and their children.

Here are the stories of three women:

Gita Ganeshan, a 52-year-old bank worker, moved to New Delhi with her husband four years ago from the central city of Bhopal to protect their oldest daughter after she was attacked in the Indian capital, where she was studying.

The young woman had been out for a morning walk in a park near her house when four men surrounded her and began tormenting her, Ganeshan said.

"One of the men squeezed her breast. She screamed and kept screaming and running till she came home," she said.

She said she and her daughter would go to the park when she visited the city.

"This was a park where we would walk every day. The girls would jog or run and we would walk along," she said. "Just that one day, she went alone and this happened and it changed our outlook as far the safety of our girls was concerned."

Her daughter gave up jogging and wouldn't leave the house alone for months. Her parents got themselves transferred to the city to look after her.

"That was when we decided that protecting our children had to be our first priority. We've given them a good education. We cannot now tell them now not to pursue their careers because it is not safe to be out working late," she said.

She has trained the young woman to be alert: "Never let your guard down."

Now, Ganeshan is thinking of moving to the central city of Indore to protect her younger daughter, who got a job there.

But for now, she has arranged a special plan to watch over her from far away.

Every evening, her daughter calls as soon as she gets off the bus on her way home from work. The two talk for the next 15 minutes while the young woman walks the kilometer to her home, Ganeshan said.

"Every day, I wake up and my first thought is of my daughters and their safety. I call them up, or they call me," she said. "It is a real fear we confront when, even for a few hours, we are not in touch over the telephone."

Sandhya Jadon, 26, a lawyer from the northern town of Agra, said the harassment starts as soon as she leaves her home.

"For most men, any woman who is out of the four walls of her house is fair game," she said.

Last week, she was repeatedly groped on a public minibus.

"It was broad daylight. I was heading to court, and this man kept trying to touch my thigh. I shouted at him and he had the gall to ask me, 'So what can you do to stop me?'" she said.

She shouted, made the driver stop and got off. But the man continued sitting in the bus and grinning at his audacity. Not one of the 10 other passengers came to her help. Most looked away, she said.

"All day that day I was disturbed. I was shaking inside but also angry. Why do we women have to suffer this?" she asked.

For the next few days, she avoided public buses for fear she would run into the man again.

She feels relatively safe at court, in her lawyer's robes. But she still doesn't stay late at work and asks her parents to meet her at the bus stop to walk her home.

"But the fear - that something bad will happen if you are not careful - is always with you. It hangs over your work; it hangs over everything you do - what you wear, or don't wear; how you talk or how you walk. It is like this big suffocating cloud hanging over you every single day of your life," she said.

Priyanka Khatri, a 21-year-old college student, said fear of attack has forced her to limit her world.

There are no movies in the evening, no late-night parties, no outside activity at all after sundown. College events are cut short because she has to get home.

"Whatever happens, I have to be home before dark. Otherwise, my parents get so worried and they will keep calling me on my cell phone till they know I'm safe," she said.

Khatri said she will only go out in the evening accompanied by her parents to a nearby temple or a family wedding.
She is shadowed by fear when she gets dressed in the morning.

"I wouldn't dream of wearing shorts or skirts in public," she said.

She is petrified by her daily commute to school on public buses.

"Usually I carry a safety pin with me, because in buses there are always men who will try to touch you," Khatri said. "Some men are so brazen, you tick them off and they will persist on groping you. Then you feel you have to do something. So I stick my pin into them, or I use my elbow, and just jab them with my elbow. But that too makes you afraid."

And she has tempered her dreams to fit the reality of life in Delhi. The outgoing badminton enthusiast longed to be an event planner. Instead, she is looking for teaching jobs, "because then I can be home before dark."

If her precautions fail and she is attacked, Khatri has a backup plan, she said.

"I will scream. I always have a scream."

Remembering Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji.

337 years back… Today; Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji was beheaded bcoz “Then ruler” Aurangzeb was not able to break Guru’s faith by making the Guru bow in front of merciless and forceful “Islamic conversions” done by the ruler.

 

On this day: Of Martyrdom of Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji…. I continue to remember and follow teachings of the Guru. I pray that may almighty guide us all to have “this” much stronger character, and unshakable faith so that we can contribute towards making a much better world. I seek for blessings so that we can stop running behind our expectations and quit the race of earning more and more money. Together we all can keep the teachings of Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji alive…. For ever and forever.

China's new passport map includes Arunachal Pradesh, Aksai Chin in its territory

By ANI | ANI – 19 hours ago

New Delhi, Nov 23 (ANI): China has reportedly depicted Arunachal Pradesh and Aksai Chin as part of its territory in its new passports.

China irked Vietnam and the Philippines as it also included disputed South China Sea Islands on maps printed inside new passports.

According to media reports, the Philippines 'strongly protests' against China's move, its foreign affairs ministry spokesman, Raul Hernandez, said.

"The action of China is contrary to the spirit of the declaration of conduct of parties in the South China Sea," Hernandez said.

Vietnam's government lodged a formal complaint with the Chinese embassy in Hanoi. (ANI)

China puts Himalayan claims on passport map

By Frank Jack Daniel | Reuters – 4 hours ago

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India is stamping its own map on visas it issues to holders of new Chinese passports that contain a map depicting disputed territory within China's borders, the latest twist in tension in Asia over China's territorial claims.

China's new microchip-equipped passports contain a map that marks its claims over disputed waters and also show as its territory two Himalayan regions that India also claims.

The map means countries disputing the Chinese claims will have to stamp microchip-equipped passports of countless visitors, in effect acquiescing to the Chinese point of view.

In response, India is issuing visas stamped with its own version of the borders, sources with knowledge of the dispute told Reuters.

"The correct map of India is stamped on to visas being issued on such passports," said one of the sources, who declined to be identified.

China's long-standing territorial disputes with Japan and Southeast Asian neighbours have grown heated in recent months.

On Thursday, the Philippines responded angrily to the new passports, saying Chinese carrying the document would be violating Philippine national sovereignty. India and China fought a brief, high-altitude border war in 1962.

The nuclear-armed neighbours have held multiple rounds of talks to resolve their disputed Aksai Chin and Arunachal Pradesh regions where they fought the war but have made little progress.

In Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry Hua Chunying told a daily news briefing that China has selected the maps as background on the inside pages of the passports issued by the Ministry of Public Security in May.

"The design is not targeting a specific country," Hua said. "We hope that the relevant countries take a rational and sensible attitude ... to avoid causing interference with normal Sino-foreign personnel exchanges." (Additional reporting by Sui-Lee Wee in Beijing; Editing by Robert Birsel)

Pack ur Bags....

Countries that offer VOA (Visa On Arrival) to Indians

If pre-planning a holiday and running around for a visa gives you a headache, then look no further. Pack your bags and head straight to airport for a hassle-free visa experience.

Here are some of the countries that offer Visa on Arrival (VOA) to Indians.

Source: Lonely Planet, http://www.visasforindians.com/TouristSummary.html

1.       With the Kenya Tourism Board, planning to boost tourism revenues in three years, it offers Indians a VOA to Kenya for a max. stay of 3 months for $50, provided the passport contains at least one blank page for visa endorsement. Extension of stay is possible for additional 3 months. Visitors are required to hold proof of sufficient funds to cover their stay and documents required for their next destination.

  1. The fourth largest island in the world, 90 percent of Madagascar’s flora and fauna, and many of its animal species are found nowhere else in the world. Indians can obtain a thirty-day visa free of charge at the Antananarivo airport, Madagascar’s primary international airport. If your stay is for up to 90 days, then multiple entry visa costs $84.00.
  2. Indian businesses have in recent years made inroads into the mining and cashew processing industries in Mozambique, a former Portuguese colony, which has seen stable administration since the end of a civil war in the early 1990s. Facilities for tourism in Maputo, the capital city, are steadily improving but remain limited in other areas. Visitors can obtain a visa on arrival, for a maximum stay of 30 days for $80.
  3. Beaches are the main attraction in Seychelles and how! With a dreamlike setting, this island (comprising of 115 of them) is an obvious choice for honeymooners. What’s more, a visa on arrival is issued free of charge. The Visitor’s Permit is initially valid for the period of visit of up to one month. It can be extended for a period of up to three months from the date of issue and capable of further extensions. One needs to have a passport valid on the date of entry to and exit from Seychelles, return or onward ticket, proof of accommodation; including contact details and sufficient funds for the duration of the stay.
  4. Bolivia visa for Indians can be obtained on arrival by paying a fee of $52 at La Paz airport. Six months validity on your passport is a must. The landlocked country is the highest and most isolated country in South America.
  5. Indians can obtain a VOA to El Salvador by purchasing a tourist card for $10 to stay for a maximum of up to 3 months. This tourist card is generally issued for 90 days and includes Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua and one can travel for 90 days throughout those 4 countries, called the CA-4.
  6. In Saint Kitts and Nevis, Indians can obtain a visa on arrival for free for a maximum stay of 3 months provided holding proof of sufficient funds to cover their stay. Proof of a valid return or onward ticket, and proof of adequate funds to cover the cost of their stay in St. Kitts and Nevis is required as well. The twin islands have beaches with the beauty of the mountains and plenty of activities
  7. Another glossed over honeymoon spot, Indians can obtain a visa on arrival to St. Lucia for a maximum stay of 6 weeks by paying a fee of $50 and holding proof of sufficient funds to cover their stay. St. Lucia has an amazing scene for scuba diving
  8. Who would’ve thought that Antarctica would feature in this list? Of course since it’s part of no country, no visa is required. However, you do need a permit to enter, visas for destinations enroute that you stop at, and a handsome budget. As most Antarctica flights and cruises depart from Argentina or Chile, you will need to show your passports in either country. You will also need to be prepared for any unscheduled stops in foreign lands, which could be the result of rough seas or all around bad weather.
  9. With Hong Kong's economy one of the fastest growing in the world and supporting a booming middle class, tourism is a potential sector for growth. With this in mind, the country offers a fourteen-day entry stamp free of charge at Hong Kong airport for Indians. Visitors are required to show evidence of sufficient funds to cover their stay in Hong Kong and hold travel documents, including visas and confirmed flight tickets, required for their return or next destination.
  10. Giving the South Asian cooperation some practical shape, Indians can obtain a VOA for a maximum stay of 90 days in Maldives, free of charge. Visitors are required to hold confirmed return/onward tickets and Hotel Reservation. Visitors who do not have a hotel reservation are required to hold at least US$ 30 per person per day to cover their stay in Maldives.
  11. Just across the border, Nepal offers plenty of sights for mountain lovers. With the largest tourism market for Nepal being India (27 percent of total tourists), a single entry visa on arrival is granted to Indian citizens for upto 150 days in Nepal.
  12. Generally, a foreign citizen who wishes to enter the Kingdom of Thailand is required to obtain a visa from a Royal Thai Embassy or a Royal Thai Consulate-General. However, Indians can obtain visa on arrival in Thailand for a stay of 15-30 days with a fee of US$ 35.
  13. Albania Visa on Arrival can be obtained for those holding a letter issued by the Albanian Ministry of Interior confirming that a visa will be available on arrival. Albania is a small, mountainous country in the Balkan peninsula, with pristine beaches and a bursting bright capital.
  14. Indians holding an official invitation letter issued by Azerbaijan and pre-cleared before travel can obtain a visa on arrival. The passport must be valid for at least 6 months after the expiry date of the Azerbaijani visa applied for. Very few people speak English, outside the capital but the country is filled with rugged mountains.
  15. Turkey Visa for Indians can be obtained on arrival provided holding a visa issued by the UK, USA or a Schengen Country for $20. Turkey boasts of rich history (the Ottoman empire) and great scenery from white-sand beaches to towering mountains.
  16. Here are the other countries that offer VOA to Indians:

Burundi, Cape Verde, Cameroon, Comoros, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Liberia, Mauritius, Sierra Leone, Cambodia, Indonesia, Iran, Laos,

Jordan, Macau, Myanmar, Tajikistan, Kuwait, Oman, Timor Leste, Fiji, Samoa, and Tuvalu.

Man of the millennium

Man of the Millennium.....

  Good Morning dear all

 

 

Mr.Kalayanasundaram worked as a Librarian for 30 years. Every month in his 30 year experience(service), he donated his entire salary to help the needy. He worked as a server in a hotel to meet his needs. He donated even his pension amount of about ten lakh rupees to the needy.

 

He is the first person in the world to spend the entire earnings for a social cause. In recognition to his service, the American government honoured him with the ‘Man of the Millennium’ award. He received a sum of Rs 30 crores as part of this award which he distributed entirely for the needy as usual.

 

Moved by his passion to help others, Super Star Rajinikanth adopted him as his father. He still stays as a bachelor and dedicated his entire life for serving the society. You can read more about him here.

 

All our Politicians, Film stars, Business magnets, cricketers  Press and we all Indians should be PROUD and also should be ashamed of ourselves. American Government has honored him but we Indians even don't know that such a personality exist amongst us.

 

Atleast have the courtesy to pass this on and on till the whole world comes to know about this Great Good Samaritan.

 

Hat's off Kalayanasundaram.. We Indians are extremely proud of you and proudly say "THIS HAPPENS ONLY IN INDIA "

Practising what he preaches

"We cannot sustain ourselves, unless we contribute to the society in someway or the other. I strongly feel if even one person does his bit towards social good, there will be some change."

A will to serve combined with a sense of social justice has been the guiding principle of P. Kalyanasundaram, who has spent over 45 years in social service. A gold medallist in library science, he is also an MA in literature and history. During his 35-year-career as a librarian at the Kumarkurupara Arts College at Srivaikuntam in Tuticorin district, he gave away all his salary for charity and did odd jobs to meet his daily needs. He has also come forward to donate his body and eyes to the Tirunelveli Medical College.

The Union Government has acclaimed him as `The Best Librarian in India'. He has also been chosen as `one of the top ten librarians of the world'. The International Biographical Centre, Cambridge, has honoured him as `one of the noblest of the world', while the United Nations Organisation adjudged him as one of the Outstanding People of the 20th Century'. An American organisation has also selected him as the `Man of the Millennium.'

Mr. Kalyanasundaram, who has founded a social welfare organisation, `Paalam', shares his experiences in a chat with Prathiba Parameswaran.

SIMPLICITY IN life and exemplariness in practice has been the hallmark of Mr. Kalyanasundaram. Born in August 1953 at Melakarivelamkulam in Tirunelveli district, he lost his father at a very young age. It was his mother, who inspired him to serve the poor.

When he was at college, the Indo-China war broke out, and he contributed his gold chain to the then Chief Minister, Kamaraj, for the war fund. At this time around, he went to meet Balasubramanian, Editor, Ananda Vikatan. "He sent me away, saying he would write about me the day I donated something I had earned myself. I did not speak a word to anyone about what I had done. I took it as a challenge," Mr. Kalyanasundaram recalls. Ever since he got a job as a librarian in Tuticorin, he has contributed all his salary, pension benefits and ancestral property to social welfare. It was not until 1990, when he received his pension arrears and contributed it to the Collector's Fund, that the then Tiruneveli Collector felicitated him, despite his protests. The `Paalam' serves as a bridge between donors and beneficiaries: it collects money and materials from those willing to donate and distribute them among the weaker sections. It has also contributed to the cyclone relief funds in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Orissa, and has helped the earthquake victims in Maharashtra and Gujarat. "We cannot sustain ourselves, unless we contribute towards the society in someway or the other. I strongly feel if even one person does his bit towards social good, there will be some change," he asserts.

Mr. Kalyanasundaram feels that one must achieve something in his chosen field. His contribution to library science is immense. A thesis he submitted as part of his post-graduate course to the Madurai Kamaraj University fetched him distinction. He has also hit upon an easy way of tracing and accessing books in libraries.

His ability to strike a rapport even with youngsters is remarkable. He cites the instance when he started wearing khadi. At college, he was required to take classes on Gandhianism. "I had to speak about simplicity and everything Gandhi stood for, but I was clad in expensive clothes. That was when I decided to switch over to khadi," he relates. Since then he had always practised what he stood for, making himself a role model for many youths.

He was popular among college and school students, and many of them have joined his organisation.

He has long-term plans for his organisation. One is the setting up of a nationalised digital library with modern equipment, which could be accessed by people from all walks of life.

He also wants to set up an international children's university in Tamil Nadu, with foreign aid. However, he says, a mission has a meaning only when the right people are involved in it. The Directorate of Public Libraries should recruit people with a library science background to be librarians, he says. "And good librarians should have a broad knowledge of everything."

God is still forgiving us for spoiling "His" earth

Winds back, Delhi smog shows signs of let-up after five days

Edited by Ashish Mukherjee | Updated: November 05, 2012 09:28 IST

New Delhi: The dense smog that kept Delhi under its grip for five days has begun to lift up. Parts of the city were windy today after a dry phase, helping clear the dust and pollutants and improving visibility.

At the Delhi airport, the visibility this morning was between 700 metres and 900 metres, good enough for flights to take off and land.

Dr JK Jenamani, Director, Indian Meteorological Department, told NDTV there had been no let-up in the smog in the last few days because of the lack of winds.

"Smog is normal in November, but this time it has been denser and prolonged because of high pollution and no wind motion from the surface till 4,000 metres above sea level," Dr Jenamani said.

"This caused the pollution from vehicles and industries to remain in the air," he said. "Such thick smog was last seen in 2008."

The weather department said the smog was likely to clear out by November 7 when winds from Rajasthan start blowing.

The smog put the focus back on Delhi's air quality, which had improved after the switch of public transport from petrol and diesel to the cleaner CNG. But the advantage is thought to have been frittered away.

Last week's large scale burning of farmlands in Punjab and haryana too contributed to Delhi's pollution and the smog.

Why I wear a Rose Quartz

Rose quartz is a type of quartz that exhibits a pale pink to rose red hue. The color is usually considered as due to trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese in the massive material. Some types of quartz contain microscopic rutile needles that produce an asterism in transmitted light. Recent X-ray diffraction studies suggest that the color is due to thin microscopic fibers of possibly dumortierite within the massive quartz.[15]

In crystal form (rarely found) it is called pink quartz and its color is thought to be caused by trace amounts of phosphate or aluminium. The color in crystals is apparently photosensitive and subject to fading. The first crystals were found in a pegmatite found near Rumford, Maine, US, but most crystals on the market come from Minas Gerais, Brazil.[16]

Symptoms of Frustrated Govt.

Non-subsidized LPG price hiked by Rs. 26.50 to Rs. 922 per cylinder

Edited by Amit Chaturvedi | Updated: November 01, 2012 15:37 IST

New Delhi: The price of non-subsidised cooking gas cylinders has been increased by Rs. 26.5.

The 14.2-kg cooking gas cylinder that consumers buy beyond their entitled six bottles at subsidised rates, will  now cost Rs. 922, up from Rs. 895.50 in Delhi, according to Indian Oil Corporation, the nation's largest fuel retailer.

A subsidised cylinder costs Rs. 410.42  in Delhi. There is no restriction on the number of non-subsidised cylinders that a consumer can buy beyond the six subsidised bottles.

In September, the government reigned in subsidies by introducing a limit of six discounted cylinders for every household.  That reform was one of the reasons for the exit of Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress from the Prime Minister's coalition, reducing his government to a minority.

The Congress has said that in states where it is in power, nine subsidised cylinders will be made available to families every year.

State-owned oil firms revise rates of non-subsidised LPG on 1st of every month based on the average imported cost and rupee-US dollar rate during the previous month.

Evidence of water flows in Mars

 

New post on TruthDive

 

Evidence of water flows in Mars

by Saravanan Jawahar

Washington, Sep 28 (TruthDive): NASA's Mars rover, Curiosity has confirmed that water once flowed in the surface of Mars around ankle to waist deep and also was suitable for microbial life.

Scientists have come to the conclusion after briefing on Thursday with the images looking like an ancient gravel stream bed. These stream bed slabs which are named as Hottah are rounded stones ranging from a sand grain to a golf ball, cemented together with water which flow freely on the surface of Mars and believed to settle on the floor of Gale Crater some billion years ago.

WiIliam Dietrich, Mission scientist of California-Berkeley University said that it appears like water was moving in the surface around 3 feet per second and the depth of it was between ankle and hip-deep.

Dietrich said that it has been lot of assumptions about the flow of water on Mars, but this was the first time a water transported gravel actually was seen on Mars.

Curiosity landed on Mars' surface in August which is now on 51st Martian day. The evidence shows that a wetter and warmer Mars once had floods of water in the Gale Crater. The analysis is founded by the telephoto images which were taken by rover Curiosity.

Finding the water is the first step towards studying whether the climate and environment could have supported the life of microbes. John Grotzinger, scientist of California Institute of Technology said that flowing water always is a place for microorganisms that have lived.

The rover is well equipped with a drill, laser and a lab to investigate the chemistry of rocks like Hottah. However, present day Mars is a frozen desert with no clue of water in its surface.

The NASA Mars Science Laboratory mission with its rover named Curiosity was launched on November 26, 2011 at a cost of 2.5 billion dollars.

Bad habits of their Homeland.

http://www.ndtv.com/article/india/in-new-york-the-messy-paan-becomes-a-sore-topic-254296

 

I just happen to read the news above, but the most brutal wound was caused by words “Bad Habits Of Their Homeland”. The article above is talking about the problem faced by local residents in new York’s 74th street district……. The problem of “spitting of Paan” on streets and sidewalks.  Those who don’t know anything about “paan” can read the article (link above), and those who know what paan is… Can u people realize the shame thrown upon u by those words “ad Habits Of Their Homeland”??? Can u realize the shame cause by those words which means bad habits of India???

 

I myself likes sweet paan, and I don’t know if anybody can spit out half of it…. It’s so nice to chew it all. But I do agree with the fact that all lower class people keep spitting gutka/paan all over the place they go in their useless life. Personally I had been so much frustrated seeing such useless humans dirtying up our streets that I have literally started yelling at them saying: “Hang a polybag in ur neck at least”. Being honest I’m sure they will never do that, nor they will stop spitting everywhere… but I will feel better if I can help contribute to the country by trying to keep my city clean.

 

New Delhi (I was born here and had been living here since then) have been known as “Dilli Dil walon Ki”, Delhi is the Place of hearty people. I had seen times when our streets/roads where empty n clean. But now streets are full of people, and red patches everywhere. I remember myself posting a comment against bal thakrey’s remarks about outsiders….. I never objected to existence of outsiders who came here in search of work but never went back…. and now I myself see the difference. On big occasions/festivals like Holi, Diwali, etc u can literally see how much empty Delhi is. It takes just half the time to travel on such days. But now I feel hurt when those people live irresponsible life by dirtying streets and surroundings. After all this cheapness they show-off themselves as great sophisticated people also.

 

Shame on u Mr. Spitters.

 

Embarassed,

GS Virdi
