The demolition occurred after a political rally at the site went wrong. On 6th December 1992, the VHP and BJP organized a rally involving more than 1,50,000 people as ‘Karsevak’. This rally on 6th December turned into a violent rally leading Karsevaks to pass the security and demolishing the Mosque. The succeeding inquiry into the case found 68 people responsible for Violence. The list of responsible people includes some leaders from Vishva Hindu Parishad and BJP. The demolition of the Babri Mosque leads to lead the rioting between Hindus and Muslims of our country. As per the estimated score, more than 2,000 people were killed in this riot.

No decision had been made so far. BJP who elevated the slogans with RSS that ‘Mandir Wahi Banaenge’ in 1992 is now in power at the Center and at State as well. The Hindu Karsevak and RSS supporters are now demanding the construction of Lord Ram Temple and establishment of Lord Ram statue under the temple.

The day from which the BJP has come to power is saying that we are fighting in Supreme Court. Soon the judgment in the favor of Lord Ram Temple construction will prevail. On the other hand, the opposition party Congress is demanding stay.

Delhi Court judge Rekha Rani refused alimony to wife instead asked her to earn

What husband did is really hilarious. He said in front of high court judge that he is ready to pay the alimony but on a genuine basis. He added that my wife is more qualified than me. She is a Gold Medalist in Science and she can find a better job than. She can earn more than me then why should I pay her alimony.

After Rekha Rani advice to her to find a job, the wife added that she had never traveled the city alone. She added I had always asked him to accompany me but he always refused. Judge Rekha Rani found her excuse distasteful and bogus and she refused her plea rather asked her to earn instead of asking for alimony.

Women Actors Ruling The Roost

Amid the bad news of child marriage, molestation, female infanticide and puberty girls dropping out of schools for lack of toilets and non availability of proper sanitation during periods in the country, atleast, a certain sort of escapist news is from the lofty world of Bollywood.

With news of demi-goddesses ranging from 45 year old Malaika Arora dating 33 year old Arjun Kapoor to our Hollywood export, 36 year old Priyanka Chopra getting hitched in December to American singer Nick Jonas and even to the very recently confirmed news of former Miss Universe, 42 year old Sushmita Sen dating 27  year old Rohman Shawl, gender seems to have hold no bar for dating spouses much younger than themselves.

Whilst Bollywood is most infamous for lower pay to the fairer sex actor vis-a-vis their male counterpart, atleast, things looks upbeat as far as the real relationships of these reel stars are concerned.

A hero-centric film have always been the norm in Bollywood, although, there have been, few and far between, sporadic films that had women as protagonists.

In a deeply rooted patriarchal country, where cinema upholds the torchbearer for pop culture, these new phenomena of older female actors -dating and marrying- much younger actor should set a precedent for their forthcoming films which would , hopefully, catch up as pop culture in the society that have been entrenched for far too long in a norm that has always been of older men marrying much younger women.May the tribe of these female actors grow.

Lit the goodness of Diwali

 

Diwali , the festival of light, is an auspicious occasion to celebrate the victorious fete over darkness. But with changing times, it also raises new complications.The exorbitant amount of firecrackers used during the festival also brings in pollution issues. Bursting of crackers not only frightens the innocuous pets at homes and disturbs the aged, it also emits harmful and hazardous gases which also affects the human body. Diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases,lung cancer and cardiovascular diseases can be triggered by the rising level of air pollution.It can also affect pregnant women and newborn babies. The resultant noise pollution can also spiked ischemic heart diseases and hearing impairment.

 

Going earthy is a great way to usher in the festival of goodness.Instead of  using numerous bulbs which consumes exorbitant electricity, handmade oil diyas is a traditional and cost effective way to decorate for the festival of lights. Not only are the clay made diyas bio-degradable, it also beautifies the occasion. Diwalis also is a special time where gifts are exchanged.It is an appropriate and thoughtful gesture if one would give their loved ones kitchen garden essentials such as chives and culantro seeds which can be grown easily on the balcony in the urban spaces. These greens will not only purify the air around but will also help provide oxygen.

This festival also sees many eager people cleaning and whitewashing their homes.A cost effective and bio-degradable approach is to decorate the rangoli with rice grains,rice paste and colourful pulses instead of the harmful and expensive powders. Flowers such as roses and marigold and green and red leaves can also be used to adorn the rangolis.

Another important aspect of this festival is the food culture.It is essential to take care of one’s health during the festive season as one tends to gorge on food that are delicious to the tastebuds but are extremely unhealthy.Oodles of sugary desserts, ladened with calories are used during the making of sweets for Diwali. Chickpeas flour, semolina and black rice along with jaggery and honey as sweeteners is recommended.Black rice pudding aren’t only classy to look at but is highly nutritious.It is not only a good source of antioxidants but anthocyanin too which aids as anti-inflammatory,anti-viral and helps in preventing cancer.

 

Don’t seek votes in name of religion, caste: Indian religious/faith leaders

As political parties brace for assembly elections next month in Karnataka, leaders of major religions and intelligentsia class gather in the state capital Bangalore to make a joint call to end branding people as patriotic or unpatriotic based on religion amid increasing attempts to exploit religious sentiments for political purposes ahead of a crucial election.

Leaders of major religions along with leaders of political parties and social activists gather on April 17 in the southern state of Karnataka to express their distress at communal tension in several areas of the country.

“We strongly object to anyone taking control of individual decisions. No one is to be categorized as anti-national or non-patriotic based on his religion, region or community. Don’t seek votes in the name of religion rather political parties should seek votes on the basis of what education and skill development they are imparting to the people,” said Mufti Manzoor Ziayee, renouned Islamic scholar and Chairman of Ilm-o-Hunar Foundation here in Delhi on Saturday.

According to Mufti Ziayee, in a bid to highlight the prevailing political atmosphere of the country several religious groups has planned to organize a conclave named “Ilm-o-Hunar”- (Education & Skill) to foster “communal amity” to help and exhort people to “overcome the power of hatred.”

 

Former Chief Justice of India K G Balakrishnan will be the key speaker in the conclave where Chief Minister of Karnataka Siddaramaiah, BJP’s Chief Ministerial candidate B S  Yeddyurappa, All India Mahila Empowerment Party Chief Dr. Nowhera Shaik, Aam Adami Party leader Kumar Vishwas, politician and former cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin will be main speakers at the event.

 

Local reports suggest tensions are politically engineered to divide people into the lines of religion and caste as rival political parties project themselves as champions of sectarian interests.

 

The election in May is crucial for both the ruling Congress to retain power and for rival Bharatiya Janata Party to emerge from its lost political prominence. The recent move by Karnataka government recommendation of separate religion for Lingayats is being seen as a poll strategy of the Congress to divide the large Veerashaiva-Lingayat vote bank which traditionally favours the BJP has vitiated the poll scenario in a significant way.

 

People of many religions live in India. Religion has been exploited by the politicians to cause riots and to excite one set of people against another on the basis of religion. We are all equal. It is in the constitution that India is a secular country but religion is exploited by the politicians to gain votes. If we want our country to be politically sound then religion should not be exploited. Religion is one’s own personal belief and should be left to oneself.

 

The Supreme Court has held last year that politicians making religious appeals are not in line with the spirit of the Constitution. If the education could promote fraternity among all religions, people would be immune to political rhetoric.

 

Mumbai based Islamic scholar Mufti Manzoor Ziayee said “Yes, I strongly endorse Supreme Court verdict and believe that religion should not be mixed with politics. Politics is a dirty game that plays with people emotions. In our country everyone is possessed with his religion getting votes for the sake of religion makes them to vote without thinking right and wrong. Politics makes our country represent our county and that representation can’t be done on the basis of a particular religion or community. It should be a mixture of all. Only education and skill development would alter the prevailing political attitude of vitiated atmosphere”.

 

The conclave is being organized under the banner of Ilm-o-Hunar, an organization which promotes nationalism by giving the underprivileged a boost through education and skill development. It is the first madarsa organization of Maharashtra which imparts such kind of activities across several states of the country and committed to uplift thousands of skilled youths in running SME and engaging in entrepreneurship.

First Indian woman in space who made India proud; Remembering Kalpana Chawla on her death anniversary

For India, it was the day when their chest swelled with pride and a day that also brought tears and heart breaks at the same time. As this day, 1st February marks the death anniversary of Indian born Kalpana Chawla in the year 2003.

On February 1, 2003, the Space Shuttle Columbia disintegrated over Texas and Louisiana as it re-entered Earth’s atmosphere, killing all seven crew-members including India-born astronaut Kalpana Chawla, the first ever Indian woman in space.

Colombia space shuttle exploded into pieces a mere sixteen minutes before landing on Earth. The spacecraft was on its 28th mission. The explosion was the result of the damaged aluminium heat-insulating tile on the left wing of the shuttle.

Columbia was the first space-rated Space Shuttle in NASA’s orbiter fleet. Over 22 years of service, it completed 27 missions before disintegrating during re-entry near the end of its 28th mission.

Kalpana Chawla was known as India’s pride. She first flew on Space Shuttle Columbia in 1997 as a mission specialist and primary robotic arm operator.

Born on March 17, in Karnal, Haryana, she began working at the NASA Ames Research Center in 1988, where she did Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) research on Vertical/Short Takeoff and Landing concepts.

Kalpana joined Overset Methods, Inc. as Vice President and Research Scientist specialising in the simulation of moving multiple body problems before being a part of the NASA Astronaut Corps in 1995.

She was 40-years-old at the time of her death. Her remains were identified along with the rest of the crew members and were cremated and scattered at National Park in Utah in accordance with her wishes.

On her 15th death anniversary, the nation proudly remembers her achievements that were instrumental in making India a renowned name in the space world.

Below is a video of her last message for India, where she was seen speaking to the erstwhile Prime Minister Mr IK Gujral:
