Palestine Flag



The Palestinian flag was originally designed by Sharif Hussein for the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire in 1916.



In 1917, the Palestinians were the first to raise it as the flag of the Arab National movement and later as the Palestinian flag.



It was again officially adopted as the flag of the Palestinian people by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1964.

Our international flags are accurately reproduced to exact specifications. The flag has 2 brass grommets on the left edge for hanging. The 4"x6" size is mounted to a staff with a spear top.

Manoj Prabhakar -- patriot for a price

H Natarajan

MUMBAI, June 10: Manoj Prabhakar's claims of being patriotic has a hollow ring to it. Indeed, had he been in the army, he could have been tried for treason. If concealing the identity of an enemy within one's own camp is a virtual abetment of a crime, then the cheek to attach a price tag for espousing a national cause only heightens the gravity of the offence.

``Since I could never tolerate the quirky ways of the people in command, I never could get to serve my country better... as a cricketer, the game is foremost on my list of priorities and, if need be, I will fight to my last drop of blood to purify the system,'' Prabhakar writes in the latest issue of Outlook.

Prabhakar was always seen as a rebel without a pause -- an image he could have refurbished belatedly had he spilt the beans about the team-mate who who made the Rs 25-lakh offer to him to sabotage India's Singer Cup match against Pakistan in 1994 at Colombo. But instead of rising in stature as a national hero, he has emerged as the villain of the piece -- like a soldier demanding an unfair price to protect his motherland.

What is Prabhakar's interest in his belated, part disclosure ? There are two possibilities. Either he has used the media to get wide publicity that he is willing to sell the story or he scents an opportunity to make an international comeback by trying to extract the price of silence. Either way he can rake in the moolah.

The latest issue of the Outlook carries another damning statement by Prabhakar when he makes a not-so-veiled statement about the Colombo episode: ``Also, at the time of the incident, I had made all efforts to inform the concerned persons and they had advised me to forget it and carry on with the game. I do hope everybody understands what this means.''

While a nation is outraged by the accusations to sell the country's interests, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) mandarins have shut their eyes, ears and mouth to the alleged unholy nexus between players and bookies. Indeed, Jagmohan Dalmiya has emerged as a modern day Nero. The BCCI secretary is fiddling in the Garden of Eden while Indian cricket and its honour is in flames.

Dalmiya, any cricket writer will vouch, is an artful dodger. Evasive when facing bumpers from the media, non-committal at best, non-communicative in the worst of times and a master at buying time.

While rumours of bookies-players nexus have been raging over the years, it's for the first time that a player is making accusation against a team-mate. Even the Salim Malik controversy pales in comparison. In that case, the accusations were made by opponents.

An enquiry by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), comprising men who have no known liking for the game and its players, will help in bringing the culprits to book. The BCCI owe it to protect the innocent players who are suffering in the general suspicion.

Of course, if Prabhakar's final salvo in the latest Outlook is any indication, then there are hardly any innocents. Says the the angry young man: ``In fact, if I could ever reveal all that I have gone through and seen, you would see that in this hamam (communal bathing area) of Indian cricket, almost everyone is naked.''

The Rediff Interview / Manoj Prabhakar

send this story to a friend

'I will reveal the names to the CBI!'

Manoj PrabhakarAfter being widely abused and blackballed for revealing how he was offered a Rs 2.5 million bribe by a team-mate to play badly in the Indo-Pak match during the 1994 Singer Cup, the bad boy of Indian cricket, Manoj Prabhakar now stands vindicated!

A journalist confessed last week that he had overheard the entire conversation from the next room. In the wake of confessions by Mark Waugh and Shane Warne that they took money from bookies, it is suddenly open season for charges of match fixing.

Prabhakar tells Pritish Nandy how he has been living under the shadow of death for daring to speak out against the impossibly powerful cricket mafia.

Now that you have been vindicated by the fact that an independent journalist from Eenaadu has suddenly come out of the closet and revealed the fact to the media that he had overheard your entire conversation from the next room, when you were offered a Rs 2.5 million bribe by a team-mate of yours to play badly during the Indo-Pak match in the 1994 Singer Cup in Colombo, do you feel that your credibility and honour has been restored?

I tried my very best even at that point of time. I went to all the concerned people, but they were just not bothered. Then I came to know that they were also involved in it. That's why I am out of cricket. Otherwise, I could have played for three or four more years.

That is the main reason why I find myself out in the cold -- the fact that I came to know that these people were all involved in a big way. That got me into so much trouble!

When did you first suspect that there was so much of bribery and match-fixing going on?

When we were in Sri Lanka in 1994. A person came to me at a party, someone very senior in the Indian cricket team, and said it in a very roundabout way, as if he was joking with me. I replied: 'Sir, those who live in glass houses should not throw stones at others.' Sitting next to me was one of India's finest and most honest cricketers. He said: 'But some of them live in bullet proof glass houses!'

Everybody knew who was doing what and why. But they got angry when I exposed it.

Why was there this conspiracy of silence after you broke the story?

Because I could not prove it. Tell me, how can I prove such a thing until and unless there is someone ready to stand beside me? I was alone when I raised this. Everybody was blaming me. Some people said: Look, what you have done is not good for our country, our cricket! So many people criticised me for it. Now I hope they will realise what has been going on for so long.

Do you think all the evidence will come out now?

Some people have all the evidence. That is why they are sticking to their story. What Rashid Latif said is not false. He said it on record. He named so many people. You can't mention each and every guy's name.

People like Azhar, Jadeja, Sidhu? Latif called Kapil Dev the biggest gambler of them all? What do you think is the extent of the malaise?

Someone will get killed one day! I will tell you why. What happens nowadays is that a player like Sachin Tendulkar can win a match on his own. You cannot stop him, whatever you may do. So what happens to these three or four people who are involved (in match fixing)? It is not their fault (that the match moves in a different direction, despite their concerted efforts). At the same time, think of the people who are putting in so much money. They can kill them.

Look, everyone is not involved. Those who bat down the order are not involved. They do not even know what is going on. If the bookie who has lost a package on the match insists that these three or four people again try a repeat performance in the next match and they refuse, it can be very dangerous for them. Because the chap has already lost a huge packet of money in the earlier match and he has to recover it somehow and pay off his dues. He has no choice. This is a very bad game now.

And you think this is very largely because of Indian bookies?

No, Indian and Pakistani bookies. They can do anything. My life was twice under threat. Even my family was under threat.

Believe me, sir, I still live in constant fear of being killed by those whom I have exposed and even those who fear that I will expose them one day. They will not let me go easily.

But how did it happen? How did it first happen?

Someone came and put a gun to my neck. That was the first time, in July or August 1997, just after I had written my column and I had said: If the time comes, I will also take the name (of the person who had tried to bribe me). Someone stopped me on the road near my house and I thought he wanted to ask me the way. Then suddenly this big hand came from nowhere and pushed my face away. I could feel the gun against my neck. He also pushed the mirror away. I could not see his face but he told me clearly: First it was your career; now your life is at stake! If you even attempt to turn around, he warned me, I will shoot you! I was so scared, I drove away without looking back. I reported it to the police, of course, but nothing much came out of it, frankly.

Then they came and threatened my family. This time, I got security for two weeks. That's when I realised that one shouldn't say anything. Just keep quiet. Nobody is going to save you.

Any more threats?

Yes, immediately after a television interview I gave. Someone came and threatened to force his way up to my flat. My chowkidar resisted and was beaten up. By that time a crowd had collected from the locality and the chap fled.

The same night, someone tried to drive over my chowkidar. The police guard given to me told the chowkidar: Look, I am going. If you want to die, you can stay here…

Did you report this to the Chandrachud commission?

Manoj Prabhakar He asked me nothing. He did not even ask me to name the guy who offered me the bribe! Now he says I did not tell him the name. My lawyer was sitting there all through. When we came out of the room, he looked at me and I looked at him. He told me: Are you thinking the same thing that I am thinking? Yeah, I said, he never asked me the real question.

I have asked for the report, but they have not sent it to me and yet they have filed a case against me. They say the report is totally confidential and only for the eyes of the President of the Cricket Control Board of India. We cannot give it to anybody, they say. They have stopped my benevolent fund also.

Why don't you name the guy who offered you the bribe and face the consequences?

Sir, I want the CBI to take this case over. I am ready to give them all the facts. I will reveal all the names involved in this racket, all the names. There is huge money changing hands every time a match is won or lost. The Government cannot turn a blind eye to it. They should get to the bottom of it.

They should, in fact, take over these private cricket bodies and use the huge money at their disposal to promote sports in India. All sports -- not just cricket. It will do wonders for Indian sports. If they remain disinterested, it will only harm the game, and our reputation, worldwide.

Jain panel debate -- Cong rejects ATR, call it a political document

EXPRESS NEWS SERVICE
NEW DELHI, Aug 5: The first day of the two-day debate in the Lok Sabha on the Jain Commission's final report on the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, and the accompanying ATR, was on expected lines with only the Congress providing a slight twist to the proceedings.

The party's speakers referred to traitors within the Congress who didn't want Rajiv as Prime Minister and that was the only intrigue in the day-long discussions. For most part, all parties took known stances.

For example, the Congress rejected the ATR calling it a political document, the CPI hit out at the Congress for pulling down the United Front government, the DMK spoke of its innocence and the Congress' dealings with the LTTE, the AIADMK wanted an FIR against M Karunanidhi and Subramanian Swamy said he was being targeted because he wanted the BJP government out.

Union Home Minister L K Advani and Urban Affairs Minister Ram Jethmalani spoke on the government's behalf, both promising a full probe into the wider conspiracy in Rajiv's killingand the involvement of a foreign hand. But the Congress hit out at the government with its Deputy Leader in the Lok Sabha P Shiv Shanker saying the BJP was playing politics with a sensitive issue.

It appeared as though the Jain Commission report was being used to score political points by all parties which spent a long time hitting out at each other's rivals. The AIADMK and the DMK spent a fair amount of lung power shouting each other down even after CPI leader Indrajit Gupta warned against such a thing in his speech.

Curiously, Shiv Shanker and Ajit Jogi of the Congress referred to people within their own party who could have played a role in Rajiv's assassination. There was no immediate clarity on whom they were referring to with some party MPs suggesting it could be P V Narasimha Rao. However, another point of view was that the party might have been trying to take a moral approach to the issue to show it wasn't bothered who would be indicted as long as the truth was out.

Shiv Shanker said his partydidn't want any witch-hunting for Rajiv's killing and was only interested in getting the truth out. He alleged the governments at the Centre after 1991 did not want the Jain Commission to unravel the truth and put hurdles in its path. He also criticised bureaucrats for not doing much on the issue and converting the ATR on the final report into a cover-up document.

Stress was laid on why no effort was made to decode the LTTE messages including one on June 18, 1988, which said that LTTE was making garlands of bullets for Rajiv Gandhi. These were decoded only before the Commission and not earlier, Shanker added.

Indrajit Gupta spoke of how some documents couldn't be provided to the Jain Commission as they too sensitive. He also referred to how the Congress played slow on the Thakkar Commission report which probed the Indira Gandhi assassination, saying the Congress had thus set a bad precedent.

Subramanian Swamy felt there was nothing controversial about his visit to London enroute to Monte Carlo tocollect some documents on Jethmalani. He said he met Chandraswami whom he knew for a decade in Monte Carlo and not in London as stated by the Jain Commission.

Laloo Prasad Yadav contributed his bit calling the ATR an ``action tarnished report'' which exposed the BJP's incompetence. Murasoli Maran claimed the DMK had not given tacit support to the LTTE but in fact gave open support as it was the Centre's stated policy then. Jogi intervened to protest saying Rajiv didn't want the DMK's to weaponise the LTTE but only wanted the DMK's help to sort out the problem in a peaceful manner.

Advani is slated to reply tomorrow to the debate in the afternoon after which the Lok Sabha is scheduled to be adjourned.

sindhu darshan

SG #1855 (1999), Sindhu Darshan

Issued in 1999 to mark the Sindhu Darshan Festival



http://www.indiapicks.com/stamps/Geography/GMO_1855_Sindhu_Darshan.htm

28-7-1999.SPECIAL POSTAGE STAMP ON SINDHU DARSHAN

The Department of Posts (DoP) has brought out a special postage stamp on the 'Sindhu' on the occasion of the Sindhu Darshan Festival (Abhiyan). The Stamp is in the denomination of Rs.3/-.

The project 'Sindhu Darshan', was started to focus attention on the heritage of the ancient Indian Civilization and Culture that 'Sindhu' symbolizes. It aims to celebrate the Sindhu as a symbol of this country's ethnic diversity and to promote communal harmony. Further, attention is sought to be focussed on cultural and topographical beauty of the landscape of Ladakh. These aspects are sought to be blended in the design of the First Day Cover which also carries inscription of the hymn 'mantra', chanted by Buddhists in the area, a prayer in praise of God. The stamp depicts a landscape in the upper reaches of the Sindhu with an inset of the famous 'Vrishabha' (bull) seal of the Indus Valley Civilization and a line, from the 'Rig Veda', describing the Sindhu.

The mighty Sindhu (Indus) river, symbolizes the power and permanence of the ancient Indian Civilization which evolved over a period of thousands of years. The archaeological discovery of the Indus Valley civilization which flourished along its banks has reinforced the antiquity of the Indian Civilization.

The First Day Cover alongwith the information sheet is available on sale at all Philatelic Bureaux/Counters and at selected PostOffices.

Sindhu Darshan

Sindhu Darshan Festival, as the name suggests, is a celebration of river Sindhu, also known as the Indus. People travel for a Darshan and Puja of the River Sindhu (Indus) which originates from the Mansarovar in Tibet. The Festival aims at projecting the Sindhu river as a symbol of multidimensional cultural identity, communal harmony and peaceful co-existence in India. Whilst promoting tourism in this area, this festival is also a symbolic salute to the brave soldiers of India who have valiantly fought the odds at Siachen, Kargil and other places.

It is also an opportunity for people from around the country and overseas to visit the beautiful regions of Leh and Ladakh. Celebrated first time in the year 1997, the festival is organised annually at Leh in the month of May-June by the Government of Jammu and Kashmir with the support of the Ministry of tourism and culture, Government of India. The festival is kaleidoscope of Indian culture and showcases an exciting array of performing arts being brought together at an exciting place. As part of the celebrations, various groups from different states in India
bring water from the other mighty rivers in the country in earthen pots and immerse these pots in the Sindhu river, thereby mingling the river water with other waters of the land.

Please see this link to truely understand what actually happened with Carol Gracias and what she was trying to put across.The pseudo beauty that is being projected by heinous bed mongers and middle aged criminals to sell sex and crime is a myth or mirage that they want the upper echelons of society to run after and grab their wealth as also finish Hindu religion and donations to temples.Today on 23-8-1993 was my daughter A-beer's 15th birthday and i went to the DU branch of Narula to eat.Where my family sat ,just opposite was a family section with a filthy dull painting of a woman with round ball like boobs without feeding nipples sending a filthy message loud and clear.To add insult to injury Kalra ordered a similar shape burger and sat chomping on it.I simply wrenched it from his hands and gave the portion to my 18 year old son to eat .But in the end the entire scene ended with my telling the security of the place to remove the offensive painting from the scene ,which they did.

Self Portrait -1935

1913-1935=22years

In September 1941 Amrita and her husband finally managed to get away from the claustrophobic Saraya estate and went to settle in Lahore. Although Lahore had a number of conservative people, there were numerous students, writers and artists who held pro-gressive views and were sympathetic to the nationalist struggle. They created an intellec-tually lively atmosphere and brought out a number of magazines and journals. Amrita enthusiastically participated in the cultural life of the city, gave talks on the radio and met a number of interesting people.

Amidst the excitement of her new environment she started her last work. It is a very matter of fact view of a court yard seen from above. In this painting she seems to be even more involved in putting down her love for India in a direct and simple form. While moving away from her tendency of decorative formalism, she seems to be striving for a synthesis of content and form and attempting to resolve the dialectic between art and life.

But both this synthesis and the painting remain unresolved. Amrita died suddenly on the 5th of December 1941 before she had even reached the age of twenty-nine.

Balochistan, or Baluchistan, (Balochi, Brahui, Sindhi, Pashto, Urdu: بلوچستان) is a province in Pakistan, the largest in the country by geographical area. It contains most of the historical region of Balochistan and is named after the Baloch. Its neighbouring regions are Iranian Balochistan to the west, Afghanistan and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas to the north and Punjab and Sindh to the east. To the south is the Arabian Sea. The principal languages in the province are Baluchi, Brahui,Sindhi and Pashto. The capital and largest city is Quetta. Balochistan is believed to be rich in mineral resources.
It is the second major, after Sindh, supplier of natural gas to the country

The Sulaiman Mountains dominate the northeast corner and the Bolan Pass is a natural route into Afghanistan towards Kandahar and was used as a route during the British campaigns to Afghanistan[1]. Much of the province south of the Quetta region is sparse desert terrain with pockets of towns mostly near rivers and streams.

The capital city is Quetta, located in the most densely populated district in the northeast of the province. Quetta is situated in a river valley near the border with Afghanistan, with a road to Kandahar in the northwest.

At Gwadar on the coast the Pakistani government is currently undertaking a large project with Chinese help to build a large port. This is being done partially to provide the Pakistan Navy with another base, and to reduce Pakistan's reliance on Karachi and Port Qasim, which are currently the only major ports[2]

This is being done partially to provide the Pakistan Navy with another base, and to reduce Pakistan's reliance on Karachi and Port Qasim, which are currently the only major ports[2]

Economy

The economy of the province is largely based upon the production of natural gas, coal and minerals. Outside Quetta, the infrastructure of the province is gradually developing but still lags far behind other parts of Pakistan. Tourism remains limited but has increased due to the exotic appeal of the province. Limited farming in the east as well as fishing along the Arabian Sea coastline are other forms of income and sustenance for the local populations. Due to the tribal lifestyle of many Baluch and Brahui, animal husbandry is important as are trading bazaars found throughout the province.

Though the province remains largely underdeveloped, there are currently several major development projects in progress in Balochistan, including the construction of a new deep sea port at the strategically important town of Gwadar.[14] The port is projected to be the hub of an energy and trade corridor to and from China and the Central Asian republics. There is considerable Chinese involvement in the project, leading some to consider Gwadar it as the Chinese outpost on the Arabian Sea.[15] The total cost of the project is estimated at more than US$2 billion. China has also invested in a coastal highway to link Gwadar with Pakistan's largest city, Karachi.[16]

Baloch Liberation

Further west is the Mirani Dam[17] multipurpose project, on the River Dasht, 50 kilometres west of Turbat in the Makran Division. It will provide dependable irrigation supplies for the development of agriculture and add more than 35,000 km² of arable land. There is also Chinese involvement in the nearby Saindak gold and copper mining project.



Yesterday Pro-Vice Chancellor of Balochistan University, Dr Safdar Kiyani was assassinated as he came outRelative of Dr Safdar Kayani consoled of his house for an evening walk. According to sources two men on bike opened fire as soon as he got out of his home. Receiving three bullets, he died on the spot.

His body has been handed over to his son after autopsy. A spokesman for BLA (Baloch Liberation Army) took the responsibility and said that Dr Kiyani was working against the “Baloch Cause”.

Dr Kiyani with over 30 years of experience in the field of education, joined Balochistan University back in 1979

. What was wrong with Dr Kiyani, an educationists which made him a “just” target for a liberation force? Only that he didn’t let the dissident elements hold political rallies in the University premises. Or when even he was having a very neutral opinion he was just not simply a supporter of the BLA and its like? Or just because he 30 years back came from Punjab to settle in there and teach thousands of Baloch graduates?

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT R.K.PURAM ARMY,POLICE OF 1979 AND SAROJINI NAGAR THREE BLASTS



  • The Women's Room (1977) by Marilyn French

  • http://www.durga-puja.org/kalkaji-mandir.html

    Kalkaji Mandir, Delhi


  • Built in: 1764


  • Kalka Devi is known to be one of the incarnations of Goddess Shakti (Durga). Due to this renowned temple, the area came to be called as Kalkaji. The image of the Goddess Kalka is believed to a self-manifested one. The main shrine has twelve sides, made in white marble and granite tiles. In the early 20th century, the present structure was erected by the contributions and donations made by the devotees.



    On religious occasions, Kalka Devi temple is thronged by innumerable devotees that come to have a glimpse of the Goddess. It is regarded that Kalka Devi fulfills all the legible wishes of her true devotees. During the time of 'Navratris' (Mar-Apr / Sep-Oct), thousands of devotees come for the 'darshan' of the deity. For the period of nine days, a huge fair is organized in the vicinity of the temple.



    Origin

    Existent from past 3,000 years, Kalkaji Temple traces many legends regarding its origin. However, the oldest part of the shrine dates back to the 1764 A.D. Kalka Temple is said to have been constructed by the Maratha Rulers in the late 18th century. Kalkaji Mandir is believed to have been survived from the times of Mahabharata.



    As per the folklore, the Pandavas and Kauravas had worshipped Kalka Devi during the reign of Yudhisthira.


  • Situated beyond the commercial complex of Nehru Place lies Kalkaji temple dedicated to the Goddess Kalka Devi. Kalkaji mandir is very famous and has numerous devotees thronging it on many religious occasions, throughout the year. Small red flags decorate the temple then, and women outnumber men among the devotees. Folklore is replete with tales of the Kalkaji temple, so much so that one does not know where legend ends and history begins.



    This is a very old temple and the oldest part was built up in
    1764 A.D. The Kali Temple in Kalkaji boasts of an existence of 3,000 years, although the oldest surviving portion of it dates to 1764-1771 when the Marathas were in power. Looking at the present-day Kalkaji temple one may find it hard to believe that this shrine to Kali is an antique one, where perhaps even the Pandavs and Kauravs had worshiped during the reign of Yudhisthir, whose citadel of Indraprastha had the fabled fairy gates of which bards sang, much like Homer of old, right up to the time of Prithviraj Chauhan.



    The temple is situated on a hill and is dedicated to Kali. There is a very distinctive feeling there and the devotees are overwhelmed by light, which stay during the whole night. The power of Ma Kali is ambiguous but powerful. Devotees also try to meditate there and a spectacular tantric aarati is held at about 7 pm. The temple is also quite near to the Bahai Temple, which is just opposite on the other side of a big road.




  • The Kalka Devi temple or the Dakshineshwar Kali Temple is located alongside the Vivekananda Bridge in Calcutta around 20 km from the BBD Bagh. The temple was built by Rani Rashmoni in 1847 and is dedicated to goddess Kali. It was here that Rama Krishna Paramhansa achieved his spiritual awakening.



    [Kalka Devi Temple]



    The temple has 12 spires and is placed in the centre of an enormous courtyard which is further surrounded by 12 temples where Lord Shiva is the deity. This temple is a world famous place of pilgrimage where thousands come from all over the world to worship the goddess.

These Saktipithas are scattered throughout the country. With every set of Sktipitha Bhairava-a form of Siva, was attached for its protection.

    How to reach Mantralayam:



    Mantralayam is around 240 km from Hyderabad. It can be reached from Bangalore and Hyderabad by bus - the journey from Hyderabad takes about 6-8 hours. If you are driving from Hyderabad, you need to take the NH7 - the highway to Bangalore and take a diversion to Jadcherla. Various state roads will take you to Mahboobnagar and Raichur in Karnataka.
    The nearest rail head is Mantralayam Road. It lies on the Mumbai-Bangalore, Delhi-Bangalore and the Mumbai-Chennai train routes. Regular rail service is available for this route. There is one train that goes from Hyderabad Deccan station to Mantralayam Road en route Tirupati. Mantralayam Road is about 8 kms away from Mantralayam. Taxis and public transport can be used to reach Mantralayam.
    The town around:



    The place is small enough to be covered on foot. If you drive into the temple complex, there is a charge of Rs. 15 for parking. The collection of parking charges is inconsistenly done, however. Rickshaws are available all over the place.
    The temple entrance
    Visiting Timings:



    Raghavendra Swamy temple. 6 AM - 8AM, 10 AM-2 PM, 4PM-8 PM. The temple and "Mutt" complex is the main attraction here, but most people here are believers, not sightseers. If you go in the evening on special occasions, you can see chariots carrying the deity being drawn around the temple and the temple elephants paying obeisance to the deity. It is quite a spectacular sight. There are three chariots, one plated in gold, the other in silver and the third in sandalwood. Behind the temple the Tungabhadra river flows, which is also worth seeing.

The Poet of Beauty: Jigar Moradabadi

Muhammad Mujahid Syed | Arab News

Jigar Moradabadi









From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Ali Sikandar Jigar Moradabadi (1890–1960) (Urdu: جگر مراد آبادی), born "Ali Sikandar", was a poet who hailed from Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh, India, and is famous for his Urdu ghazals. He took on the takhallus (nom de plume) of Jigar.

He belonged to the classical school of ghazal writing and was a mentor of Majrooh Sultanpuri, a famous lyricist of Indian Film Industry who penned many popular songs in Hindi/Urdu.

Jigar remained a keen drinker most of his life and was famous for his forgetfulness and absent-mindedness. His ghazals remain very popular with lovers of Urdu poetry. Many remark that the era of classical Urdu poetry ended with Jigar.

One of his most memorable couplets is:

yeh ishq nahin aasaan bas itna samaj lijiye,

eik aag ka dariyaa hai aur doob ke jaana hai


Translation: Love is like an ocean of fire and the lover must drown to cross through it.





WHEN one talks about Urdu ghazal (poetry) one personality definitely figures in the cream of poets in the 20th century. That poet is fondly known as Jigar. And any history of Urdu ghazal in this era would be incomplete without Raeesul Mutaghazzalin (Prince of Urdu Ghazal) Jigar Moradabadi (1890-1960).

The poet hailed from the city of Moradabad in the state of Uttar Pradesh in modern day India. But for Jigar, it would have remained one of the other sundry cities abounding the nation, and it is to this unique poet that the city owes its fame, despite the fact that Jigar moved from Moradabad early in his life and resided in Gonda for the rest of his life.

Jigar was much admired and read by many and his works launched him into a realm of his own, such that he was more popular than the princes and regents of the 500 former Indian princely states. The popularity could be gauged by the huge following he had among the masses, to the extent that many of his fans would besiege stations just to get a glimpse of their favorite son passing through their towns and cities.

The respect he got transcended religious and language barriers that were prevalent at that time. Though his poetry was in Urdu, he was called on to recite his works in varied platforms earning the commendations and love of both the Hindu and Muslim communities. His poetry was such that even Pandits from Sanskrit maths (schools) conferred varied honors on him.

Though his work was very much in the traditional ghazal form, he was nonetheless a trendsetter and indeed, some maintain that he reinvigorated Urdu ghazal. He works just as other masters of the form do but his choice of words and his expression lends his creations something new.

Like Persian poets, his diction was precise, that, along with the meaning and essence of the words gave the effect of fulfillment. He is a natural poet, producing the sense of drama, tweaking the range of emotions and evoking the highs and lows of happiness and sadness with his pauses and repeated renditions of the lines of poetry. His words are filled with music and he knows full well that for a poet, words are like coins: They must not be wasted. They must be used economically. In his brevity is both music and rich meaning; his rhythm touches the heart.

Jigar himself was as melodious as his ghazals. Both princes and paupers were his fans. Though he did not seek riches or fame, he became unexpectedly rich and was able to help the needy.

Many books dealing with Jigar’s poetry are available but proper and careful selection and research is still scarce. Jigar’s individuality still has great appeal. And it is this unique feature that has secured a special place for him in the field of ghazal.

The special feature of his ghazals is that they contain his life story. His life was never different from his poetry. His nature, inclination, tone and all the colors of his being are there in his poetry.

Jigar was a great admirer of beauty and was successful in painting a live picture of his earthly beloved in his ghazals but he does not stop there. His description of beauty carries us to a different timeless land where eternal beauty is supreme. The reflection of this eternal beauty is found everywhere in his ghazals. The presence of this beauty gives him ecstasy. And this ecstasy secured recognition for his ghazals.

Jigar does not follow either the so-called Lucknow or Delhi schools that were rigidly applied by many maestros of his time. His ecstatic style, careful selection of words, peculiar similes and metaphors make him unique. With his distinguished style, he creates a unique world of beauty.

His poetry is an example of Robert Frost’s definition — “beginning in delight” and “ending in wisdom.” He describes the nature of beauty:

Kahan Ka Husn, Agar Uth Jaye Purdah

Haqiqat Kya? Agar Mubham Nahin Hai

“If the veil is lifted revealing all, then reality is grim.” Here he applies the metaphor of a woman in veil, whose hidden attributes act seductively, as does life where real beauty lies in the veiled attributes that accentuates reality.

He goes on to say:

Jab Ishq Apne Markaze Asli Pe Aa Gaya

Khud Bun Gaya Hasin Do Aalam Pe Chhaa Gaya

This couplet lends a sonorous ending to the life and love when linked to the above verse.

Then in another line Jigar touches on the range of moods that paints life. He says

Ghum Mein Bhi Hai Suroor Woh Hungaam Aaa Gaya

Shayed Ki Daure Baadae Gulfam Aa Gaya.

Which in a nutshell means, even sorrow has ecstasy in it. This intoxicates him. How delicate this couplet is!

In another verse,

Dil Ko Na Poochh Marakaye Husno Ishq Mein

Kya Jaaniye Gharib Kahan Kaam Aa Gaya

Jigar enlightens the heady battle that our heart is caught in between beauty and love, mirroring life’s challenges in one swift blow. His gentle touch of the second line renders the heart low in this consummate battle enhancing the poetry to unique levels.

The poet’s passion for love and beauty enables him to bring to the fore complex thoughts in simple terms. Even death is treated with the same ecstasy that he reserves for every single aspect of life.

The poet approaches the time-worn subject of the beloved in the same tenor, but adds his own twist by sending the readers on a different tack when they are hit by the inner meaning whereby in seeking nearness one only gets separation.

His couplet:

Kamaale Qurb Bhi Shaayed Hai Ain Bu’d Jigar

Jahan Jahan Wo Mile Main Wahan Wahan Na Raha, says it all. The person finds the beloved only to lose his existence. There is this subtle irony of ethereal and sublime in the more direct meanings of the line. Just as in Persian poetry, the description of the beloved’s beauty and its influence on the heart and material objects are often present in Urdu poetry as well.

Jigar’s place among 20th century ghazal poets is unique because he has touched on different topics, shades and dimensions. His contemporary ghazal writers, of course, had their importance but Jigar’s art excels them all. By publishing articles about Jigar’s poetry and a selection of his ghazals, Chaudhry Ali Mubark Usmani has done a great service to Urdu literature.

Majrooh Sultanpuri

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Majrooh Sultanpuri (October 1, 1919 - May 24, 2000), was an Urdu poet, lyricist and songwriter. He ruled Indian Cinema in the 1950s and early 1960s.

Majrooh Sultanpuri was born as Asrar ul Hassan Khan in Sultanpur, Uttar Pradesh on October 1, 1919. Since his father was a police sub-inspector, he couldn't afford the expensive English education for his son. Majrooh instead completed the seven year course of Dars-e-Nizami in Arabic and Persian and went on to take the degree of becoming an Alim. He then joined Lucknow's Takmeel-ut-Tib College of the Unani System of Medicine. He was an established Hakim when he happened to recite one of his ghazals at a mushaira in Sultanpur. The ghazal became famous with the audience and Majrooh saw his calling. He dropped his prosperous medical practice and began writing poetry seriously. Soon he became a fixture at mushairas and became great friends with the renowned Urdu poet, Jigar Moradabadi.

Contents

[hide]

[edit] Films

In 1945, Majrooh visited Bombay to attend a mushaira at the Saboo Siddique Institute. Here his ghazals and poetry was highly appreciated by the audience. Once of the impressed listeners was film producer A.R. Kardar. He contacted Jigar Muradabadi who helped him to meet Majrooh. However, Majrooh refused to write for films because he didn't think very highly of them. But Jigar Muradabadi persuaded him, saying that films would pay well and would help Majrooh to support his family. Kardar then took him to music composer Naushad who put the young writer to test. He gave Majrooh a tune and asked him to write something in the same metre, and Majrooh wrote Jab Usne Gesu Bikhraye, Badal Aaye Jhoom Ke.... Naushad liked what he wrote and Majrooh was signed on as the lyricist of the film Shah Jehan (1946). The songs of the film became so immensely popular that K.L. Saigal wanted Jab Dil Hi Toot Gaya to be played at his funeral. But before he could react to the large-scale appeal created by these lines, he fell ill. The harsh Bombay weather made him leave the city and return to his hometown in the North. During 1949 under Mehboob Production songs from Andaaz became very popular Dilip Kumar & Raj Kapoor became top stars. Naushad, Majrooh Sultanpuri & Mukesh these trio gave a wonderful performance which is still remembered.

[edit] The left connection

Shah Jehan was followed by S. Fazil's Mehndi, Mehboob's Andaaz (1949), and Shahid Latif's Aarzoo. Just as Majrooh was establishing himself as a lyricist and songwriter of repute, his leftist leanings got him into trouble. The government wasn't amused by his anti-establishment poems and he was put behind bars in 1949 along with other leftists like Balraj Sahni. Majrooh was asked to apologise to save his skin, but he refused and was sentenced to two years in prison. While he was in prison, his eldest daughter was born. Those were the financially tough days for his family and there was no one to help them. It was Raj Kapoor who came forward to help but he knew Majrooh would not accept money like what Kapoor wanted to give him. So he asked Majrooh to write a song. Majrooh wrote Ek Din Bike Jayega Maati Ke Mol and Kapoor gave him Rs. 1000 for that.

The leftist connection further manifested itself in the marriage of his second daughter to the son of the legendary Urdu writer and socialist Prof. Zoe Ansari. Toward the end both Majrooh and Zoe Ansari were disenchanted with the direction socialism had taken in the Soviet Union and China. Their desire to better the lives of the masses found an outlet in their writings.

[edit] Awards

Majrooh went on to write lyrics for popular films throughout the 1950s. Along with Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Majrooh was considered the most notable ghazal writer. It was Majrooh's versatility that industry folk swore by, for Majrooh could enthrall listeners with his every work. Majrooh won his only Filmfare Award for Dosti, which rankled the maestro a lot. He couldn't digest the fact that lesser writers walked away with many awards. He has written nearly 4000 songs and his success rate in terms of popularity of songs was 95%. So he couldn't understand what the criteria was for selecting winners.

He was awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1993. He was the first lyricist to win the prestigious award named after Dadasaheb Phalke.

[edit] Association with Nasir Hussain

Majrooh and Nasir Hussain first combined on the film Paying Guest, which Nasir wrote. After Nasir turned director and later producer they went on to combine in several films, all of which had huge hits and are some of Majrooh's best remembered works:

Majrooh also was instrumental in introducing R.D. Burman to Nasir for Teesri Manzil, the trio worked in 7 of the above mentioned films. RD went on to work in 2 more films subsequent to Zamane Ko Dikhana Hai

[edit] Death

Majrooh Sultanpuri had a severe attack of pneumonia and was admitted to the hospital on May 16, 2000. He died a few days later.

Sultanpur, Uttar Pradesh

The Jagdishpur Industrial Area



Jagdishpur is situated at about 60 km from the city of Sultanpur on the national highway No.56. Nihalgarh, the nearest railway station on Lucknow-Varanasi route, is about 6 km from the main industrial area towards Sultanpur and has been a major market place for the local people or the people living in villages around it from a very long time. The place has been a major market itself and also played a role as a nodal centre for reaching to other important markets at other places. Well connected by roads with Lucknow, Raebareli, Sultanpur and Faizabad cities, Nihalgarh (about 27 km from Tehsil Musafirkhana) always played a significant role in the economic affairs of the natives of the region. During the period when prominent political personalities opted for Amethi as their parliamentary constituency (in 1980s), Jagdishpur was selected to be a most suitable place in the district for setting up heavy and medium scale industries for generating employment for locals and their multipronged development. Now it has become a grown up industrial area with Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. and Indo-Gulf Fertilizers being main establishments.

Shahi Bridge over the Gomti River in Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh

The Gomti, Gumti or Gomati River (Hindi: गोमती Gomtī) is a tributary of the Ganges River. According to Hindu mythology the river is the daughter of Sage Vashistha, and bathing in the waters of the Gomati on Ekadashi (the eleventh day of the Sanatana Dharma-Hindu calendar) can wash away one's sins.

The Gomti originates near Madho Tada, Pilibhit, India. It extends 900 km (560 miles) through Uttar Pradesh and meets the Ganges River near Saidpur.

The river is a thin stream until it reaches Mohamadi (about 100 km from its origin) where it is joined by a prominent tributary called the Sarayan River. From here the river is well defined. Another major tributary is the Sai River, which joins near Jaunpur.



After 240 km the Gomti enters Lucknow, through which it meanders for about 12 km. At the entrance point water is lifted from the river for the city's water supply. 25 city drains in the Lucknow area drain into the Gomti. At the downstream end the Gomti barrage impounds the river converting it into a lake.

The cities of Lucknow, Lakhimpur Kheri, Sultanpur and Jaunpur are located on the banks of the Gomti and are the most prominent of the 15 towns located in its catchment area.















Actor Salman Khan goes to jail, is 'prisoner no 343'





Salman Khan, one of Bollywood's top actors on Saturday became "prisoner no 343" at the Jodhpur Central Jail after he was arrested and jailed for five years for hunting an endangered chinkara deer in 1998.

Salman, 41, looked subdued and was mostly quiet as policemen took him into custody on his arrival from Mumbai by a Jet Airways flight and rushed him in a police jeep to a courtroom before sending him to jail.

The dramatic jailing, which drew hundreds of his fans to the court and the prison complex, came a day after a district court upheld the five-year jail term given to Salman by a lower court.

Salman has been convicted of poaching a chinkara deer at the Ghoda farm near Jodhpur on the night of September 28, 1998 while filming Sooraj Barjatya's blockbuster Hum Saath Saath Hain.

Jail sources told IANS that Salman had been sent to barrack no 1.5, where the hugely popular actor had spent three nights in April 2006 before he got bail. Giving him company is Mahesh, who was with Salman during his first jail also.

Jail officials said Salman may be a celebrity but he would wear the white prison dress like everyone else and get no special treatment.

"We will follow the Jail Manual strictly and no additional (facilities) will be provided to Salman," senior jail official Ota Ram said.

The actor, Ram said, would be allowed to meet three people in 15 days.

"His food would also be similar to what is given to other jail inmates," the official said. Other sources said this would mostly be chapatis and lentils. But since the actor had been sentenced to undergo "simple imprisonment", he would not have to do any hard labour.

When he landed in Jodhpur, Salman was dressed in a white T-shirt, jeans and sporting sunglasses. Accompanying him were his brother Sohail, bodyguard Shera and his counsel Dipesh Mehta.

A large number of journalists and fans gathered at the airport and later outside the court and jail to catch a glimpse of the star. The police had a tough time controlling the crowds.

"We took him into custody and took him to court, which ordered that the actor be taken to Jodhpur Central Jail," a police official told IANS.

Salman is the second Bollywood star to be jailed in a span of a month. Sanjay Dutt spent 23 nights in Mumbai and Pune prisons after being convicted under the Arms Act in the 1993 Mumbai bombings. He is currently out on bail.

Although the killing of the deer by Salman and his friends had evoked widespread revulsion, there was no dearth of Salman lovers on Saturday.

"He is my hero and is suffering because of his celebrity status," insisted Rupali Singh, a college student who described herself an ardent devotee of the Bollywood actor.

According to legal experts, Salman will have to spend at least two nights in jail as the court does not sit on Saturday and Sunday too is a holiday. Any bail plea can be taken up only on Monday.

However, Salman's lawyers Saturday filed a revision petition in the Rajasthan High Court on Saturday.

His counsel Hastimal Saraswat said: "We have filed a revision petition in the high court. Though the court does not sit on Saturday but the court office is open, so we are filing the petition today.

"We will also plead for his bail when the court hears our petition," he added.

The actor had earlier told reporters outside his Mumbai home: "I have full faith in the law of the land and I will abide by (its ruling). I am going to Jodhpur to surrender."

The district and sessions court in Jodhpur on Friday dismissed the actor's plea against the five-year jail term handed by the chief judicial magistrate's court.

In April last year, Salman had filed an appeal in the district and sessions court against the judgment of the lower court in Jodhpur.

The court had found Salman guilty under Section 51 of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972. He had spent three nights in Jodhpur Central Jail before the district and sessions court gave him bail.

On Friday, district and sessions judge Kamal Raj Singhvi rejected his appeal and upheld the five-year jail term and the fine. The judge also issued an arrest warrant against him.

The star of hit films like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam failed to appear for the hearing on Friday, saying he had missed the flight to Jodhpur from Hyderabad where he was shooting. However, his sister Alvira was in the court.

A case was registered against Salman and five others under the Indian Penal Code, the Wildlife Protection Act and the Indian Arms Act October 11, 1998.

A few years ago, marketing executive and green thumb David Jensen of Clare, Michigan, moved outside the city limits so he could grow a bigger, better garden—only to watch it get devoured by deer that seemed to fear nothing. "You could go out and clap at them, and they would just look at you," says Jensen today. He was so inspired to control the critters that he quit his job and opened Deer Resistant Landscape Nursery, which specializes in plants and products that limit the extent of the damage.

Jensen's business is booming, thanks to the proliferation of hungry deer in American towns and suburbs. Their population is at an all-time high—"more now than when the Pilgrims landed," says Michael Conover, a professor of wildlife at Utah State University. He cites the decline of hunting as a major reason that deer are encroaching onto residential lots: "Deer have lost their fear of man, basically."

Handsome as they are, deer really don't belong around your house. Besides destroying expensive plantings, deer carry ticks that spread Lyme disease and cause more than a half-million auto collisions each year. Unfortunately, some of their favorite snacks are common landscape plants, including roses, tulips, hostas, many ornamental shrubs such as rhododendron and yew, to say nothing of leafy vegetable gardens.

But trying to fend off the interlopers can be just as frustrating as having Bambi and friends devour your hard-earned landscaping. Deer are intelligent and highly adaptable creatures; when they get hungry enough, they'll test the limits of just about any preventive measure. That's why experts recommend an "integrated management plan"—that is, using a variety of techniques.

"You have to keep them guessing," says This Old House landscape contractor Roger Cook, a veteran of the deer wars. "Eventually deer will get used to anything, so I always recommend rotating repellents and combining them with other tools like scare tactics and fencing."

Here is a look at the options.

Put in a barrier fence.

Among the most foolproof deterrents are physical barriers like fences. Deer are agile jumpers, so fences need to be high—typically about 8 feet. Black propylene deer fencing in a 2-inch net ($2 to $4 per foot) is virtually invisible in a wooded setting and relatively easy to install; metal sleeves are pounded into the ground every 15 feet, and thin metal posts are inserted in the sleeves. The netting is clipped to the posts, then stretched tight.

Of course, fencing your whole lot is not always feasible—or desirable—and motivated deer will find any opening, such as the driveway. But a fence can effectively enclose a vegetable or cutting garden near the house.

Lyme Disease

Classification and external resources
Nymphal and adult deer ticks can be carriers of Lyme disease. Nymphs are about the size of a poppy seed.


Lyme disease, or borreliosis, is an emerging infectious disease caused by at least three species of bacteria belonging to the genus Borrelia.[1] Borrelia burgdorferi is the predominant cause of Lyme disease in the United States, whereas Borrelia afzelii and Borrelia garinii are implicated in most European cases.

Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne disease in the Northern Hemisphere. Borrelia is transmitted to humans by the bite of infected hard ticks belonging to several species of the genus Ixodes.[2] Early manifestations of infection may include fever, headache, fatigue, depression, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans. Left untreated, late manifestations involving the joints, heart, and nervous system can occur. In a majority of cases, symptoms can be eliminated with antibiotics, especially if diagnosis and treatment occur early in the course of illness. Late, delayed, or inadequate treatment can lead to late manifestations of Lyme disease which can be disabling and difficult to treat.

Some groups have argued that "chronic" Lyme disease is responsible for a range of medically unexplained symptoms beyond the objectively recognized manifestations of late Lyme disease, and that long-term antibiotic treatment is warranted in such cases.[3] However, a series of randomized controlled trials found no significant benefit from prolonged antibiotic treatment in such patients,[4][5][6] and most expert groups including the Infectious Diseases Society of America and the American Academy of Neurology have found that existing scientific evidence does not support a role for Borrelia nor ongoing antibiotic treatment in such cases.

Symptoms

Lyme disease can affect multiple body systems, producing a range of potential symptoms. Not all patients with Lyme disease will have all symptoms, and many of the symptoms are not specific to Lyme disease but can occur in other diseases as well. The incubation period from infection to the onset of symptoms is usually 1–2 weeks, but can be much shorter (days), or much longer (months to years). Symptoms most often occur from May through September because the nymphal stage of the tick is responsible for most cases.[9] Asymptomatic infection exists but is found in less than 7% of infected individuals in the United States.[10] Asymptomatic infection may be much more common among those infected in Europe.[11]

[edit] Stage 1 – Early localized infection

Common bullseye rash pattern associated with Lyme Disease.
Common bullseye rash pattern associated with Lyme Disease.
'Characteristic
Characteristic "bulls-eye"-like rash caused by Lyme disease.

The classic sign of early local infection is a circular, outwardly expanding rash called erythema chronicum migrans (also erythema migrans or EM), which occurs at the site of the tick bite 3 to 32 days after being bitten.[12] The rash is red, and may be warm, but is generally painless. Classically, the innermost portion remains dark red and becomes indurated; the outer edge remains red; and the portion in between clears – giving the appearance of a bullseye. However, the partial clearing is uncommon, and thus a true bullseye occurs in as few as 9% of cases.[13]

Erythema migrans is thought to occur in about 80% of infected patients.[12] Patients can also experience flu-like symptoms such as headache, muscle soreness, fever, and malaise.[14]

Lyme disease can progress to later stages even in patients who do not develop a rash.[15]

[edit] Stage 2 – Early disseminated infection

Within days to weeks after the onset of local infection, the borrelia bacteria may begin to spread through the bloodstream. Erythema migrans may develop at sites across the body that bear no relation to the original tick bite.[16] Another skin condition, which is apparently absent in North American patients, is borrelial lymphocytoma, a purplish lump that develops on the ear lobe, nipple, or scrotum.[17] Other discrete symptoms include migrating pain in muscles, joint, and tendons, and heart palpitations and dizziness caused by changes in heartbeat.

Acute neurological problems, which appear in 15% of untreated patients, encompasses a spectrum of disorders.[14] One is facial or Bell's palsy, which is the loss of muscle tone on one or both sides of the face. Another common neurologic manifestation is meningitis, characterized by severe headaches, neck stiffness, and sensitivity to light. Radiculoneuritis causes shooting pains that may interfere with sleep and abnormal skin sensations. Mild encephalitis may lead to memory loss, sleep disturbances, or changes in mood or affect. In addition, simple altered mental status as the sole presenting symptom has been reported in early neuroborreliosis.[18]

[edit] Stage 3 – Late persistent infection

After several months, untreated or inadequately treated patients may go on to develop severe and chronic symptoms affecting many organs of the body including the brain, nerves, eyes, joints and heart. Myriad disabling symptoms can occur.

Chronic neurologic symptoms occur in up to 5% of untreated patients.[14] A polyneuropathy manifested primarily as shooting pains, numbness, and tingling in the hands or feet may develop. A neurologic syndrome called Lyme encephalopathy is associated with subtle cognitive problems such as difficulties with concentration and short term memory. Such patients may also experience profound fatigue.[19] Other problems such as depression and fibromyalgia are no more common in people who have been infected with Lyme than in the general population.[20][19] Chronic encephalomyelitis, which may be progressive, may involve cognitive impairment, weakness in the legs, awkward gait, facial palsy, bladder problems, vertigo, and back pain. In rare cases, frank psychosis has been attributed to chronic Lyme disease effects, including mis-diagnoses of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Panic attack and anxiety can occur, also delusional behavior, including somatoform delusions, sometimes accompanied by a depersonalization or derealization syndrome similar to what was seen in the past in the prodromal or early stages of general paresis.[21][22]

Lyme arthritis usually affects the knees.[23] In a minority of patients arthritis can occur in other joints, including the ankles, elbows, wrist, hips, and shoulders. Pain is often mild or moderate, usually with swelling at the involved joint. Baker's cysts may form and rupture. In some cases joint erosion occurs.

Acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans (ACA) is a chronic skin disorder observed primarily in Europe.[17] ACA begins as a reddish-blue patch of discolored skin, usually in sun-exposed regions of the upper or lower limbs. The lesion slowly atrophies, and the skin may become so thin that it resembles wrinkled cigarette paper.

Lyme disease is caused by Gram-negative spirochetal bacteria from the genus Borrelia. At least 11 Borrelia species have been described, 3 of which are Lyme related.[24][25] The Borrelia species known to cause Lyme disease are collectively known as Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, and have been found to have greater strain diversity than previously estimated.[26]

Three closely-related species of spirochetes are well-established as causing Lyme disease and are probably responsible for the large majority of cases: B. burgdorferi sensu stricto (predominant in North America, but also in Europe), B. afzelii, and B. garinii (both predominant in Eurasia).[24] Some studies have also proposed that B. bissettii and B. valaisiana may sometimes infect humans, but these species do not seem to be important causes of disease.[citation needed]

[edit] Transmission

Hard-bodied ticks of the genus Ixodes are the primary vectors of Lyme disease.[1] The majority of infections are caused by ticks in the nymph stage, since adult ticks are more easily detected and removed as a consequence of their relatively large size.[citation needed]

In Europe, the sheep tick, castor bean tick, or European castor bean tick (Ixodes ricinus) is the transmitter.[citation needed]

In North America, the black-legged tick or deer tick (Ixodes scapularis) has been identified as the key to the disease's spread on the east coast. Only about 20% of people who become infected with Lyme disease by the deer tick can remember having been bitten,[27] making early detection difficult in the absence of a rash. Tick bites often go unnoticed because of the small size of the tick in its nymphal stage, as well as tick secretions that prevent the host from feeling any itch or pain from the bite. The lone star tick (Amblyomma americanum), which is found throughout the Southeastern United States as far west as Texas, is unlikely to transmit the Lyme disease spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi,[28] though it may be implicated in a related syndrome called southern tick-associated rash illness, which resembles a mild form of Lyme disease.[29]

On the West Coast, the primary vector is the western black-legged tick (Ixodes pacificus).[30] The tendency of this tick species to feed predominantly on host species that are resistant to Borrelia infection appears to diminish transmission of Lyme disease in the West.[31][32]

While Lyme spirochetes have been found in insects other than ticks,[33] reports of actual infectious transmission appear to be rare.[34] Sexual transmission has been anecdotally reported; Lyme spirochetes have been found in semen[35] and breast milk,[36] however transmission of the spirochete by these routes is not known to occur.[37]

Congenital transmission of Lyme disease can occur from an infected mother to fetus through the placenta during pregnancy, however prompt antibiotic treatment appears to prevent fetal harm.[38]

[edit] Tick borne co-infections

Ticks that transmit B. burgorferi to humans can also carry and transmit several other parasites such as Babesia microti and Anaplasma phagocytophilum, which cause the diseases babesiosis and human granulocytic anaplasmosis (HGA), respectively. Among early Lyme disease patients, depending on their location, 2-12% will also have HGA and 2-40% will have babesiosis.[39] Cat scratch fever is another common co-infection, although there is debate among experts on this topic on tick-to-human transmission.[citation needed]

Co-infections complicate Lyme symptoms, especially diagnosis and treatment. It is possible for a tick to carry and transmit one of the co-infections and not Borrelia, making diagnosis difficult and often elusive. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC)'s emerging infections diseases department did a study in rural New Jersey of 100 ticks and found that 55% of the ticks were infected with at least one of the pathogens.[40]

[edit] Diagnosis

Lyme disease is diagnosed clinically based on symptoms, objective physical findings (such as erythema migrans, facial palsy, or arthritis), a history of possible exposure to infected ticks, as well as serological tests.

When making a diagnosis of Lyme disease, health care providers should consider other diseases that may cause similar illness. Not all patients with Lyme disease will develop the characteristic bulls-eye rash, and many may not recall a tick bite. Laboratory testing is not recommended for persons who do not have symptoms of Lyme disease.

Because of the difficulty in culturing Borrelia bacteria in the laboratory, diagnosis of Lyme disease is typically based on the clinical exam findings and a history of exposure to endemic Lyme areas.[1] The EM rash, which does not occur in all cases, is considered sufficient to establish a diagnosis of Lyme disease even when serologies are negative.[41][42] Serological testing can be used to support a clinically suspected case but is not diagnostic.[1] Clinicians who diagnose strictly based on the CDC Case Definition for Lyme may be in error, since the CDC explicitly states that this definition is intended for surveillance purposes only and is "not intended to be used in clinical diagnosis."[43][44]

Diagnosis of late-stage Lyme disease is often difficult because of the multi-faceted appearance which can mimic symptoms of many other diseases. For this reason, Lyme has often been called the new "great imitator".[45] Lyme disease may be misdiagnosed as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), lupus, or other autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases.

Prevention

Attached ticks should be removed promptly.[64] Protective clothing includes a hat and long-sleeved shirts and long pants that are tucked into socks or boots. Light-colored clothing makes the tick more easily visible before it attaches itself. People should use special care in handling and allowing outdoor pets inside homes because they can bring ticks into the house.

A more effective, community wide method of preventing Lyme disease is to reduce the numbers of primary hosts on which the deer tick depends such as rodents, other small mammals, and deer. Reduction of the deer population may over time help break the reproductive cycle of the deer ticks and their ability to flourish in suburban and rural areas.[65]

[edit] Management of host animals

Lyme and all other deer-tick-borne diseases can be prevented on a regional level by reducing the deer population that the ticks depend on for reproductive success. This has been demonstrated in the communities of Monhegan, Maine[66] and in Mumford Cove, Connecticut.[67] The black-legged or deer tick (Ixodes scapularis) depends on the white-tailed deer for successful reproduction.

For example, in the US, it is suggested that by reducing the deer population back to healthy levels of 8 to 10 per square mile (from the current levels of 60 or more deer per square mile in the areas of the country with the highest Lyme disease rates), the tick numbers can be brought down to levels too low to spread Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.[68]

Pathophysiology

Borrelia burgdorferi has the ability to disseminate to numerous organs during the course of disease. The spirochete has been found in many tissues, including the skin, heart, joint, peripheral nervous system, and central nervous system.[133][134] Many of the signs and symptoms of Lyme disease are a consequence of the inflammatory response to the presence of the spirochete in those tissues. [14]

B. burgdorferi is injected into the skin by the bite of an infected Ixodes tick. Tick saliva, which accompanies the spirochete into the skin during the feeding process, contains substances that disrupt the immune response at the site of the bite. [135] This provides a protective environment where the spirochete can establish infection. The spirochetes multiply and migrate outward within the dermis. The host inflammatory response to the bacteria in the skin is associated with the appearance of the characteristic EM lesion.[133] However neutrophils, which are necessary to eliminate the spirochetes from the skin, fail to appear in the developing EM lesion thereby permitting the bacteria to survive and eventually spread throughout the body.[136]

Days to weeks following the tick bite, the spirochetes spread via the bloodstream to joints, heart, nervous system, and distant skin sites, where their presence gives rise to the variety of clinical manifestations of disseminated disease. The spread of B. burgdorferi is aided by the attachment of the host protease plasmin to the surface of the spirochete. [137] The bacteria may persist at these sites for months or even years despite active production of anti-B. burgdorferi antibodies by the immune response. The spirochetes may avoid the immune response by decreasing expression of surface proteins that are targeted by the immune response, antigenic variation of the VlsE surface protein, inactivating key immune components such as complement, and hiding in the extracellular matrix, which may interfere with the function of immune factors. [138][139]

In the brain B. burgdorferi may induce astrocytes to undergo astrogliosis (proliferation followed by apoptosis), which may contribute to neurodysfunction.[140] The spirochetes may also induce host cells to secrete products toxic to nerve cells, including quinolinic acid and the cytokines IL-6 and TNF-alpha, which can produce fatigue and malaise.[141][142][143] Both microglia and astrocytes secrete IL-6 and TNF-alpha in the presence of the spirochete.[140][144] IL-6 is also significantly indicated in cognitive impairment.[145]

A developing hypothesis is that the chronic secretion of stress hormones as a result of Borrelia infection may reduce the effect of neurotransmitters, or other receptors in the brain by cell-mediated pro-inflammatory pathways, thereby leading to the dysregulation of neurohormones, specifically glucocorticoids and catecholamines, the major stress hormones.[146][147] This process is mediated via the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. Additionally tryptophan, a precursor to serotonin appears to be reduced within the central nervous system (CNS) in a number of infectious diseases that affect the brain, including Lyme.[148] Researchers are investigating if this neurohormone secretion is the cause of neuropsychiatric disorders developing in some patients with borreliosis.[149]

Antidepressants acting on serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine receptors have been shown to be immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory against pro-inflammatory cytokine processes, specifically on the regulation of IFN-gamma and IL-10, as well as TNF-alpha and IL-6 through a psycho-neuroimmunological process.[150] Antidepressants have also been shown to suppress Th1 upregulation.[151]

Govinda’s daughter undergoes surgery

Govinda's daughter, Narmada, underwent a third facial surgery yesterday. (She had met with an accident about two-and-a-half years ago)

(l-r) Sunita, Govinda and Narmada



Yesterday, Govinda's 20-year-old daughter Narmada underwent a major facial surgery in Mumbai. Narmada, with her brother Yashvardhan and mother Sunita, had met with a serious accident in August 2005 when their vehicle collided with a truck on their way to Ajmer Sharif. This was Narmada's third surgery.



When contacted, Govinda confirmed that Narmada had undergone a facial surgery. He spoke to us from the hospital yesterday. He said, "I am in the hospital (name of hospital withheld by request) now.



Nammo has just come out of the operation theatre. It was a major surgery and lasted for two-and-half hours. This was her third surgery but thankfully, the last one. She is fit and fine now."



Govinda said that the family knew from day one that Narmada would need at least three surgeries to be completely fine again. "In the very early stages of her recovery, she had some problem eating and drinking. It was a tough time for us, but all's well that ends well. God has been kind."




Not so long ago, there were rumours that she was soon going to make her Bollywood debut. Said Govinda, "Now, Narmada is ready to go to an acting institute. I am sending her to London. I was just waiting for this third and final surgery to get over. I am very happy and relieved now," said Govinda

Dear Sir,


This is a small article on how Dayanand Sarasvati was intitiated in to Sanyas and what were his views on other religions ,other than what he believed in,for all to judge at their own discretion.
“The initiation ceremony took place on the banks of the Narmada river.After performing the preliminary rites he carried out ‘the funeral ceremonies’ ,of all ancestors,symbolically ‘enacted’,his own funeral and made offerings to himself as a PITRI[a deceased ancestor].Having thus become freed from all his family obligations he shaved his head completely and discarded his sacred thread.Entering the river ,he emerged naked and took seven steps.This signified the birth of a ‘new man.’The intiating Guru then prostrated himself before the new sannyasi and handed him a kamandalu(water pot) and a danda(staff).Donning just a loin cloth to cover his nakedness,and on his forehead the three horizontal lines which Shaviates put as their sacerdotal mark.Having discharged his three debts to the sages, to the fathers and the Gods,Mulji was now free to seek Moksha(emanicipation)having no obligation to stay in a monastery or to consult his gurus or superiors.He was also given a new name,the one by which he became famous-namely Dayanand Sarasvati..We shall hereafter refer to him not as Mulji,as hitherto,but as Dayananda”.



Satyarthaprakasha-Chapter 13 and 14 criticize Christainity and Islam.He ridicules the Christain concept of creation in seven days,and the creation of eve from Adam’s fifth rib.If that was so,he reasons,why do not all men,who are descended from Adam,have an extra rib?God made Satan.Dayananda says why should he have made an evil entity.Besides ,the serpent who asked Eve to to eat the forbidden fruit was not evil;for he was giving good counsel .Eating the fruit would confer knowledge,and knowledge of truth was a good thing.In fact God was represented as speaking a falsehood when he said that if Adam ate of the fruit he would die.God should be cursed for the lie not Adam.Dayananda criticizes Noah’s Ark.How could such a small boat contain all the pairs of various creatures on the earth.."



But Hindu mythology also speaks of the Pushpaka Vimana which could expand to contain many persons as got into it.It was on this that Rama along with Sita and a host of warriors flew back to Ayodhya after killing Ravana. in battle.In fact the mythology of many religions abounds with such incredible accounts.Nor can we judge them by our ordinary human standards.He criticizes ceremonies like circumcision which he calls unscientific and harmful.Hindus have similar ceremonies too like boring the earlobes,and even Aryans have the wearing of the sacred thread.



One could ask with similar logic how a mere thread could assume sacredness.Again in the “Book of Genesis”,it is said(18.7) that when the Lord appeared to Abraham in the plains of Mamte,Abraham ‘ran into the herd and fetched a calf tender and good and gave it unto a young man;and he hastened to dress it.” Dayananda says,why should not the disciples of the god who eats the flesh of calves, not eat the flesh of cows,calves and other creatures?It is clear he says,that it was not God who appeared to Abraham but a group of wild men[there were said to be two men with the Lord]He criticizes the stone put up by Jacob which was called –Beth-el.In the book of Exodus,Dayananda criticizes the Lord’s turning Moses’s rod into a serpent and then into a rod again,making his hand leperous and healing it.Dayanada says the Christains have represented their God as a ‘magician”He also condemns the Lord’s slaughter in the Misr land,as though ‘a dacoit would get up in the night and kill children,old men and cattle.Thus Dayananda criticizes the events mentioned in the Old and the New Testaments on purely rational grounds."



But no religious scriptures are purely rational except perhaps the philosophical portions of Hinduism,Buddhism, and a few other religions.The Ramayana, Mahabharata and other scriptures abound in the what we might consider impossibilities.So it would not be fair to single out the Bible and the Quran.



Ridicule and sarcasm figure in his comments in a big way,and it can easily hurt the sentiments of those whose faith he criticizes.In the long chapter against Hinduism,for example,it is the ritual practices that up largely for condemnation.Though one may agree with most of his criticism-and doubtless corruption,particularly by Pujaris and mahant forms the most disreputable aspect of the Hindu ritual religion-the tone is not very appropriate,to say the least of it.



For example,the

‘conversation’between a Shastri and a Mahatma:
Mahatma:Why have you put on this black tilak mark and black [sacredotal]line?

Shastri: By doing so I will go to heaven.Shri Krishna’s Complexion was also dark.That’s why I apply this black Tilak mark.

Mahatma:When by putting on these marks you go to heaven,why don’t you blacken your entire face?Then you will go to some place even better than Heaven.And if you blacken your entire body as Shri Krishna was,then you become like Shri Krishna.





It would perhaps have been enough to say that the practice is not right and the reference to Lord Krishna,whom the Hindus revere,is quite out of place,and would certainly,hurt the sentiments of Krishna Worshippers.”
