LK Advani speak against Mangalore Pub Attack

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and PM Candidate LK Advani on Saturday condemned the attack on young women in a Mangalore pub by members of Hindu group as a violation of Indian culture. Advani said: "I strongly condemn the attack on girls in Mangalore. There can be no compromise on this. It is wrong and against Indian culture and ethos."
Advani said that people could have different perspectives on whether they approved of young men and women frequenting pubs but attacking them was wrong. "Girls and boys will have their own ways, and you may not approve, but it is wrong to attack them for it," he said.
He was referring to the Jan 24 attack by members of the Sri Ram Sene on young women in a Mangalore pub. The Sene members had accused the women who go to pubs of violating Indian tradition.
This is one good thing for BJP before election that they are not supporting these kind of groups which is definitely nation threat. they are people who use religion and culture for their own profit and to becomes in news.

Ajmer is second home for A R Rahman

This is a secret Oscar winner A R Rahman did not reveal until a few days after his historic feat. The town of Ajmer, famous worldwide for the dargah of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti, has become the second home of Rahman and family after Chennai. A strict follower of Khwaja Garib Nawaz, Rahman had been visiting the holy city at least twice a year for the past more than two decades. Rahman bought the bungalow in Ajmer's satellite area, Kundan Nagar, last November in his mother's name. Even some local residents spoke to Rahman, his mother and sister when they stayed there in November last year for a few days for registering the house, but they didn't recognise him.
It's only after Rahman's Oscar triumph that the people of the area came to know about the owner of the bungalow. Rahman, even otherwise, prefers to keep his identity a secret and prefers to sit with devotees on his visit to the dargah, says Pyare Mohan Tripathi, the district public relations officer.

Development plan will be focused on Poor and farmers - Ashok Gehlot

Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot announce today that development plans of his government will be focussed on poor, labourers and farmers living in villages. He was speaking at the foundation laying ceremony of ESI Medical College and Hospital at Desula village in Alwar district. The 300-bed hospital will be built at a cost of Rs1,000 crore as a part of Centre's project to establish 13 new ESI medical colleges and hospitals across the country.
Alwar is one of the most industrialized regions in the state and there is a huge population of laboures and factory workers here. The ESI hospital is expected to benefit more than 2 lakh workers. The chief minister also assured full support for establishment of a private university in the region.
Influence of the forthcoming parliamentary elections was evident on the occasion as speakers focussed on highlighting the achievements of the UPA government at the Centre and the work of the recently- elected Congress government in the state. The chief minister Ashok Gehlot claimed, "In limited time the state government has made historical decisions in direction of public welfare that will benefit the poor, labourers and farmers in the villages."

Indian GDP growth at 6-yr low of 5.3%

The Indian economy is now officially estimated to have grown at 5.3% in the October-December 2008 quarter over the corresponding months of 2007, making it the lowest year-on-year growth for any quarter since January-March 2003. The lower than expected growth in the third quarter (Q3) of 2008-09 makes it extremely unlikely that the 7.1% growth projected for the full financial year earlier this month will be met. It is likely to add to pressure on RBI to take measures to boost growth.
The sharp dip in growth in Q3, from 7.6% for Q2, was due to a 2.2% decline in agriculture and a 0.2% decline in manufacturing. The dip in agriculture would be particularly worrying for several sectors which were banking on strong rural demand. For April-December 2008, the growth rate is now 6.9%. The economy will have to grow 7.7% in Q4 if 7.1% growth for the full year is to materialise. Given the global recession, that seems extremely remote.

Pandit Hiralal Shastri - First Chief Minister of Rajasthan

Pandit Hiralal Shastri was born on November 24, 1899 at Jobner in Jaipur District. Born in a peasant family, he had his early education in Jobner. Hiralal secured the degree of Sahitya Shastri in 1920. He took B.A. degree in 1921 from Maharaja's College, Jaipur, securing the first rank. From early childhood Hiralal had a burning desire to go to some village and devote his life to the service of the downtrodden. Though he joined Jaipur State Service in 1921 and had a meteoric rise to become Secretary in the Home and Foreign Departments, he resigned the same in 1927. While in administrative service he displayed qualities of hard work, efficiency and fearlessness.
In 1929, in fulfillment of his childhood resolve, Hiralal Shastri selected a remote and backward village Banasthali, 45 miles from Jaipur and founded 'Jeevan Kutir' there. Here he trained a band of dedicated social workers and endeavoured to implement a programme of rural reconstruction. These workers later became the heralds of political awakening in many of the Rajputana States. He himself was drawn to political arena when he was drafted to reorganize Jaipur Rajya Praja Mandal in 1937 of which he was twice elected General Secretary and twice President. In 1939 he led the Praja Mandal's Satyagraha for achievement of civil liberties and suffered a six-months imprisonment.
In 1947 he was appointed General Secretary of All India States Peoples Conference. The same year he was elected to the Constituent Assembly.
On the installation of representative Government in Jaipur State in 1948 Hiralal Shastri took over as the Chief Minister and when Rajasthan State was formed on March 30,1949 he became its first Chief Minister. On him fell the herculean task of integrating the diverse princely units into effective modern administration. He accomplished this complex task ably in a short period. He resigned on January 5, 1951 and later became member of the Second Lok Sabha.
Hiralal Shastri passed away on December 28, 1974. Forthright and fearless in his views, an Indian to the core of his heart, a selfless social worker, Pandit Hiralal Shastri was a farsighted and popular leader. To him goes largely the credit of laying the foundation of a strong, unified and progressive Rajasthan.

It will put Rs 6,020 crore in the hands of government staff and pensioners over the next 14 months, spurring consumer spend in a slowing economy.

Even as the world moaned Gmail’s failure on Tuesday,Internet giant Google admitted it had crashed its own data centres causing of the email service for close to four hours in India alone. But industry experts are not buying this excuse. Google said that during a routine maintenance of one of its European data centres, they had directed the traffic to other servers.

This caused cascading problems from one data centre to another”, said Gmail site reliability manager Acacio Cruz on early Wednesday morning. In short,Google crashed its own servers, unintentionally of course. However, analysts say Google may be covering up its failure by terming it a “self-mistake”.

Tata Nano to roll out on March 23

The world’s cheapest car, the widely-awaited Nano, will be launched on March 23, Tata Motors said on Thursday. The company will display the Nanot dealerships from the first week of April and will accept bookings from the second week of April. Nano’s entry might lead to growth in the domestic market.

The company displayed the Nano at the Geneva Motor Show last year and plans to present the European version at the show in March 2009. It plans to sell Nano in Europe for E5,000. The company unveiled the Nano in January 2008 with a price tag of around Rs 1 lakh, nearly half the price of the next cheapest car in India, and aimed at launching it in the last quarter of 2008.

It invested Rs 1,500 crore for setting up the West Bengal unit and is spending Rs 2,000 crore in the Sanand plant. Tata Motors will roll out 60,000-80,000 units of the Nano from another plant in Pantnagar in Uttarkhand till the Sanand unit is geared up to produce 2.5 lakh units a year. There is speculation as to whether Tata Motors would launch Nano in a number of cities. “The company is making arrangements for the widest possible network to book the car, so that prospective customers can conveniently avail of booking facilities at their locations. The booking process and other details will be announced on March 23,” the company said in a statement. Tata Motors has begun aggressively gearing up its distribution network to sell the car, which will primarily focus on semi-urban and rural markets. “We have been asked to open as many showrooms as possible at the district levels as the company has planned a slew of new launches this year,” said a Mumbai-based Tata Motors dealer, requesting anonymity. The base version of the Nano, which will be without an AC, will be priced at around Rs 1 lakh while the AC model will carry a higher price tag, said sources close to the project. It is learnt that Tata Motors Finance is working on various packages through SBI and HDFC Bank to offer competitive interest rates.

India Lost First T20 at New Zealand tour

New Zealand started the tour with a bang as the hosts cruised to a comprehensive seven wicket victory over India in the first T20 match of the series. Brendon McCullum’s half centurion stand proved to India’s nemesis as he ensured a win to start the tour on a good note for his team. He was given apt support by Jacob Oram who milked the bowlers for runs that ultimately led to the fall of the T20 World Champions in their first outing in the Kiwi land.
The Kiwi batsmen had adopted a contrasting game-plan as they kept the wickets intact in the major part of the game, only punishing the odd ball rather than going in for the kill right from the word go.
Wickets here, wickets there, wickets everywhere…The Indian T20 armada began in a typical dynamic T20 fashion as the visitors managed to score 162/8 with the big names failing to register in the tour opener.

Uncertainty over BJP-BJD alliance in Orissa

Uncertainty continued over the formation of pre-poll alliance between ruling BJD and BJP in Orissa assembly and Lok Sabha polls as the second round of talks between the leaders of both parties ended inconclusively. "We have not reached any final decision. The talks will continue," state Finance Minister P C Ghadei, who led BJD team during the talks held yesterday, told reporters. While describing the meeting as "positive and cordial", he admitted that no firm decision could be taken.
Stating that they discussed on different issues including seat swapping in the wake of delimitation of constituencies and seat sharing ratio, Ghadei said both the parties exchanged their views on the basis of candidate selection and the ground realities at the grassroots. Neither BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik nor Pyari Mohan Mohapatra, who is BJD's strategist, attended the meeting to decide the future of the alliance. The discussions was attended by prominent BJP leaders while BJD was represented by second rung leaders.
Relations between the two parties were reportedly fraught over the ongoing violence in Kandhamal district. The parties fought separately in Cuttack Municipal Corporation elections where BJP fared poorly.

Narendra Modi - Rahul Gandhi word war Continue, Rahul at Gujrat

The war of words between Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and the Congress escalated today with the BJP leader in a veiled reference to Rahul Gandhi likening him to a "small aquarium fish" unlike leaders in the saffron party who are like "ocean fish" who can weather big storms. The Congress quickly reacted sharply to Modi's fish remarks targeting the scion of the Gandhi-Nehru family in the intense debate on experience versus youth issue ahead of General elections saying he was like a "piranha who devoured human beings." "If Rahul is like a fish in the aquarium, then Modi is a piranha who devoured human beings," Congress spokesman Manish Tewari said in New Delhi.
The remarks of Modi poking fun at Gandhi while addressing a rally at Margao, 40 kms from here, came on a day when the 38-year-old AICC General Secretary began his two-day Gujarat tour, his third visit to the state in the last 20 days, Modi said youths in Congress are incapable of taking on challenges while BJP's youth wing can handle any hostile weather. "We are not small fish floating in the comfort of aquariums but we weather huge storms to win," Modi said in an apparent reference to Gandhi, who is being projected as a youth icon for the coming elections.
In a veiled attack again at Gandhi, Modi said, "we are not flowers cultivated by gardeners of the rich, we have grown up in the forests of our own."

After moon mission, ISRO looking for twin launch

After the successful Chandrayaan-I moon mission, Indian Space Research Organisation is now getting ready for a twin launch - a "breakthrough" Radar Imaging Satellite (RISAT) and ANUSAT. Bangalore-headquartered ISRO is targeting a March last week date for launching them on board the indigenously built Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle from the Sriharikota spaceport.
Indian space scientists see the 1,780-kg Risat as a major milestone for the country as far as remote sensing satellites are concerned. RISAT mission would have a C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) payload, operating in a multi-polarisation and multi-resolution mode.
SAR, being an active sensor, operating in the microwave range of electromagnetic spectrum, provides the target parameters such as dielectric constant, roughness, and geometry, and has the unique capability for day-night imaging, and imaging in all weather conditions including fog and haze, and also provide information on soil moisture.

"So far, all satellites launched by ISRO are optical remote sensing satellites. But RISAT will have all other capabilities," ISRO spokesperson S Satish told reporters.

Tata nano car by Tata Motors is today sent to Ajmer Dargah and Golden Temple Amritsar. Given all its troubles last year, it is no surprise that the Nano is seeking divine blessings as its commercial launch date nears. While two factory-fresh Nanos — one white, one silver — were driven to the Golden Temple in Amritsar on Friday for blessings, on Sunday afternoon, yet another Nano made its way through the narrow, crowded lanes outside Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti’s dargah in Ajmer, Rajasthan. Tata officials with the car offered a chadar at the shrine. “Ratan Tata himself instructed that the blessings of different leading shrines of our pluralistic country should be sought before the Nano hits the road,” said one of the five officials who travelled in the car to Amritsar, refusing to be named.

The Nano in Ajmer was built at Pimpri in Maharashtra, airlifted from Mumbai to Jaipur and driven down, said a Tata Motors dealer. The Nano drew huge crowds everywhere. “Wherever we stopped for lunch or tea, hundreds would gather,” the Tata official said. “Many wanted to test-drive the vehicle. We allowed a few to do so.” “It was both a spiritual journey and a test of its road worthiness,” said Rishi Dada, managing director of Dada Motors, Tatas’ authorised dealer in Jalandhar and Ludhiana.

UPA may won Lok sabha Election 2009

The governing United Progressive Alliance currently has an edge over the Opposition in the forthcoming General Elections but the results may throw up a hung Parliament, predicts a CNN-IBN-CSDS survey. The survey predicts that if elections are held now the UPA is likely to get 36 per cent of the votes, the same as 2004. The Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance would get 29 per cent votes, a decline of 7 per cent from 2004.

The Left parties and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) are expected to get 6 per cent votes each. Translating the vote share into seats, the UPA is likely to end up anywhere between 215 and 235 seats and the NDA will get 165 to 185 seats. The Left Front, which recorded its best performance in Parliament elections in 2004, is unlikely to repeat its impressive performance and will get 35 to 45 seats this time.

About Dargah Shariff Ajmer

Dargah Shariff of Hazrat Khwaja Muinuddin Chishti is indeed an ornament to the city of Ajmer. It is one of the holiest places of worship in India not only for the Muslims but also for the people of other faiths who hold the saint the high esteem and reverence. He has unquestionably been one of the greatest spiritual redeemers of human sufferings. To the faithful and afflicted souls invoking his blessing, he has ever been a never-failing source of moral strength and spiritual enlightenment. Apart from the common people, even the mighty kings of India, both Hindu and Muslim, have paid submissive homage to the great saint and have sought his miraculous aid to solve their problems.

The Dargah lies at the foot of the northern extremity of Taragarh hill. Its main attraction is the mausoleum containing the tomb of the saint which is the sanctum of the Dargah. Among its other prominent attractions which catch the eye of a visitor immediately he enters the Dargah, are the two mighty Buland Darwaza, which were built with the donations of Sultan Ghyasuddin Khilji of Mandoo who ruled Malwa from 1469 to 1500 A.D. The other Buland Darwaza in the north, which is now the main entrance of the Dargah, was built by H.E.H. Nisam Usman Ali Khan of Hyderabad Deccan in 1915 A.D. at a cost of Rs. 55,857/-. On the top of this gateway, there is the main Naqqar Khana (drum house) containing two pairs of huge naqqars (beating drums) which were presented by Emperor Akbar after his successful victory in a campaign of Bengal. They are sounded to the accompaniment of music played on Nafeeries and Shahnias at certain fixed hours of every day and night of the year by musicians permanently employed on the staff of the Dargah.

The Dargah includes many other attractive buildings, tombs, courtyards and Daalaans, some of which are exquisite specimens of the Moghul architecture and were erected during the Moghul period. Akbar was the first Moghul Emperor to visit the Dargah on foot when Ajmer came under his possession. He built the Akbari Masjid in the Dargah in 1571 A.d. which is a spacious mosque (140x140) feet. It was repaired by Nawab Ghafoor Ali of Danapur in 1901 A.D. One of its wings now accommodates the Moiniua Usmania Darul-Uloom, an Arabic and Persain School, for religious education which is run under the management of the Dargah.
