While watching Sanju remember some truths hidden by Hirani and Sanjay Dutt

Sanju, a biopic on Sanjay Dutt’s life, is breaking the box office success records. In the first week, the film’s earnings have crossed 100 crores. But people are getting different reactions to this film directed by Rajkumar Hirani, on the one hand people are talking about Ranbir Kapoor’s brilliant performance, on the other hand some people believe that Sanjay Dutt’s life and crimes are covered To put this film has been produced, in which an attempt is being made to improve public image by applying crores of rupees.

Sanjay’s involvement in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts has blown the head of the media. It is as if Sanjay stood in the dock because the media was behind him, not because he had a suspicious relationship with the underworld and kept AK guns and grenades in his house!

As a writer of a book by researching Sanjay Dutt, I would like to say that I was more frustrated by the way the case was deviated and made lighter, seeing that many important characters and events in Sanjay’s life have been disappeared from the film. Here I am mentioning many such important things, on whose behalf this film takes a blind eye.

1: Sanjay’s first encounter with the law

Sanjay was not confronted with the law for the first time in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case. In 1982, he was caught in a shootout at his home on Pali Hill for the first time.

What does the book say?

May 22, 1982 was a summer night. Most residents of the elite Pali Hill were fast asleep. There was darkness in the number 58 bungalow near St. Anne’s Church. But the turmoil was hidden behind the peace seen from above. Suddenly, this neighborhood was awakened by the sounds of firing and glass shattering.

Sanjay Dutt was walking in the air waving his rifle of .22 bore and staring in the premises of his bungalow. In a few minutes, anxious neighbors and anxious passersby came out and they were trying to peek inside. It seemed that the young man was not in control, he could not understand anything and he seemed to be a little nervous. After that he started crying. He began to climb the barbed wire fence with bare hands due to his shaking body. Regardless of the blood flowing from his hand, Sanjay’s scream was echoing in the air: ‘Why are you all afraid of me? I am not a drug addict. I have given up drugs! ”It was becoming evident that Tina Accountant was going to leave her life like this, still bothering her.

It was gradually clear what had happened: Sanjay, who was addicted to alcohol and was in a sorrow of heartbreak, had fired indiscriminately in the air in his bungalow. Some windows of the bungalow were broken by bullets and the glass of his car was shattered.

After this whole incident, Sanjay probably came to notice how irresponsible he has done, and many people are watching him. He ran back to his house and locked himself in the room. When the police came and searched the house, Sanjay could not be found anywhere. Later he admitted that a friend had secretly taken him away.

Sanjay was alone at home at the time of this firing incident. Sunil Dutt had gone to America in connection with the shooting and had taken both daughters with him. Kumar Gaurav was also going to America.

In fact, the same evening, Sanjay Dutt went to the airport to release Kumar Gaurav, when he got the news that the shooting of Tina’s film Sautan was over. The entire team of the film had returned by shooting in Singapore. But Tina did not even call Sanjay. When Sanjay reached home and took out the liquor for himself, he was agitated that Tina did not call him.

There was a breakup between them but Sanjay did not want to accept it. He said, “The shooting is over and all the people have returned. But where is it? I love him I will never live without him. ‘

2: Sanjay’s first wife Richa Sharma and first child Trishala

The film tries to show Sanju Sanjay as a big-hearted family man but Sanjay was not always like this. The film says that he had more than 350 affairs, but forgets to mention his first wife Richa Sharma. When Richa was battling cancer in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Sanjay had an affair with another big star heroine of that era.

What does the book say?

Was Madhuri worried about Sanjay getting married? She belonged to a conservative family and her image in the media was very clear. As the Star and Style story pointed out, she feared losing confidence in the public that she was about to marry a man who was the husband of a woman who had cancer, and that man because of her Was leaving his wife.

But Madhuri’s secretary Rakesh Nath’s wife and screenwriter Reema Rakesh Nath said, “I don’t think Madhuri’s personal decision should come in the way of her career for Sanjay.” Look at Hema and Dharmendraji. Hema Malini maintained her dignity despite marrying a married man. ‘

But Richa’s sister Anna did not intend to leave Madhuri like that. In the same interview of Cine Blitz, Anna said, ‘Is Madhuri so inhuman? I mean Madhuri can find any man. How can he trust such a man Is he who treated his wife like this? … I know that they are good friends because Sanjay called them from our house. And he also talks about his sister and brother here. But we never thought that this man’s affair is with Madhuri. We are very open minded. We have always given Sanjay full space. ‘

Richa hoped that everything would be alright between her and Sanjay, but the news came that Sanjay filed a divorce application in early 1993. Richa became furious. ‘What mistake have I made? I do not understand what he wants in his life. A pretty girl who is slim? I think that’s why he fell in love with Madhuri … Sanjay was a very good boyfriend. But the story was different as a husband. ‘

3: Sanjay’s sisters and his bitter relationship with Manyata

There is no doubt that Sanjay’s sisters Namrata and Priya have played an important role in Sanjay’s life since he was an addict and in jail. Despite such closeness, his relationship with his sisters deteriorated when he came close to recognition. But there is not even a dialogue on this aspect in the film.

What does the book say?

Sunil Dutt came to know about a small clinic in Mumbai and Sanjay was admitted there. There he had electrode therapy (placing electric electrode in the forehead of the patient), which was very painful, and had no effect.

When the treatment proved ineffective, Sanjay was taken to Breach Candy Hospital from there. He recounts an incident in the hospital which looks funny from above but also reveals how helpless he had become. Every night, one of his sisters had to stay with him in the hospital so that when Sanjay gets drunk, he can help him to bear his pain.

Sanjay says- ‘Priya used to study in school then … I started having hallucinations. I thought she was ‘Gurkha’. I said, “Hey Gurkha! Aye Gorkha! ”Priya got scared but did not want to murmur. She started expressing it as if she was really Gurkha. He said, “Yes Saab, speak! What to do, Saab? ”I said,“ Bring me charas. ”She said,“ Charas is not there, I have a bidi. What does bidi ask for? ”

Remembering that incident, what Sanjay said later was true, ‘Not only was I sick, but the whole family was sick with me.’

Ever since Manyata came into Sanjay’s life, she was the cause of a quarrel in the Dutt family. But perhaps the biggest quarrel between Sanjay and his sisters occurred when Sanjay tried to contest the Lok Sabha elections on a Samajwadi Party ticket in 2009 (eventually he could not stand the election due to his legal troubles). After that, Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh got Sanjay included in the Samajwadi Party.


Invisible Police Post at Press Club of India

There has been a tradition in the Press Club of India that all kinds of economic, social and political views are being communicated in the society. Media is known as an organized platform for freedom of expression. But the way the percentage of restrictions on the freedom to listen and speak is increasing, even the Press Club of India is not left untouched. Aadhar card or identity card is being sought from club members for booking a place in the club.

Prashant Tandon, a senior member of the club, said that when he made an application to book a place in the club to issue a report of the investigation team based on an incident of mob lynching, he was told that the Aadhaar card from the organizer of the event Giving is mandatory One member, without discussing his name, informed that aadhar card was also demanded from him.

Program Recommendations

When members recommend for a program in the club, it has been made mandatory to inform the police. On the basis of that information, the police decide which program to call the member of the club recommending and pressurize them not to conduct the programs which she considers her opponent for political reasons. Many members said that they were questioned by the police after the recommendation of booking a place in the club. Senior member Suresh Nautiyal said that when he booked a place for one of his events, before the program, the club management called and asked the chairman to clarify the program outline.

Members of any organization are organizations in person and only a group of members is considered an institution. The Press Club of India is not only the name of a Kothi in Raisina Road, but it is a platform in the journalism world. Members have the right on this forum that they can give their recommendations for listening and communicating to people and institutions that have become the medium of expression of all kinds of ideas and culture.

As an institution, clubs give strength to their members’ confidence in the constitutional rights of freedom of expression in democracy. The club also has programs ranging from religious saints’ programs to communal ideas and dancing songs. To meet the physical needs of the press club, the support of the budget of the Ministry of Defense from multinational companies is also taken. In a way, this open space of all the thoughts and expressions going on in the whole country has been considered and caution is also taken to ensure that there is no penetration. There is no scope of retrenchment in the programs regarding their character and nature.

Institutions like the Press Club, therefore, have a distinct feature from all the institutions in the country. And at its core, ordinary members have the right to remain the medium to listen to all kinds of ideas and maintain a state of dialogue.

Political conditions are advocates for the reduction of the rights of democracy at all levels. This danger is also underlined in the context of various attacks on the media. The extension of that threat is to create pressure at the government level to cut the rights of ordinary members of the Press Club of India.

Recently, the club’s management was informed about the arrival of Maharashtra Police in the Press Club of India campus in search of journalist Vishwas Deepak and the recommendation made by Vishwa Deepak to the police for an event without any restriction. How does management have the right to immediately provide information related to members on any aspect related to the rights of common members? And can club management devise a “strategy” to isolate the member?

In the past three to four years, police within the Press Club have been making their own inroads on some pretext and the situation has become such that the management of the club has not felt the need to call any general meeting in terms of the fundamental rights of the members. . This can be interpreted as meaning that the management has accepted the members as subordinates and there has been a confusion about the members that they too have no worries about their basic rights. But this situation can not be limited to imposing restrictions on programs with different political and social views. It can also be expanded as to what can be eaten or drunk in the club and what cannot be done.

Senior member of Press Club Ali Javed had also recommended to provide the venue of the club for an event on fixed fee basis, but the police could not translate the rumors against him into charges but the management of the press club showed hyperactivity His membership was canceled with immediate effect. In the press club, there are attacks on those who follow the views related to the programs related to which the views are being made. It is not a coincidence that information related to members recommending programs related to minorities and Dalits was provided to the police. In this way, the distinction between inside and outside is seen to be over. This can be taken as an example to get an idea of ​​the trends that are expanding in the Press Club. A member of the club’s executive tried to propose that bouncers could be reinstated within the club. The second example is the meeting of the Executive on 4 July which emphasized the need to take action against those members who have written And under the pretext of Vishwa Deepak, they discussed to clarify their stand with the current management of the club against the attacks on the rights of common members of the club.

The Press Club is independent only if it is truly sensitive to maintaining a position to communicate with all kinds of ideas about securing its democratic traditions, and in this era of attack even ordinary members have to be sensitive to their rights. . As an institution, the future of democracy can be imagined if the Press Club of India retires from the responsibility of being a platform for expression associated with variations and differences.

Displacement: Whose development? For what and at what cost?

The monsoon has brought a double whammy to the village of Chamandih in Gaya district of Bihar. There is no roof left to live, nor grain to eat.

Today it is two o’clock in the afternoon and torrential rains have started. More than fifty people of the village have frozen under a temporary tent to avoid the rain.

The Mahadalit community of Bara Panchayat in Chamandih village of Chakand, fifteen kilometers from Gaya, is facing the brunt of development and caste alliances. The Prime Minister of India gives the slogan of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’, but the railway ministry of his government is trying to air his slogan. It may seem strange to hear what development has to do with caste, but the Nats, Potters, Bhuyans and Dusadh castes of Chamandih village have endless experiences with it.

Exploitation Issues

Since these castes have also been the most exploited within the Dalit community, they were declared Mahadalits in the year 2007 under the leadership of Nitish Kumar. The government claimed that creating the Mahadalit category within the Dalits would help in their social, political and economic betterment.

For almost forty years these Mahadalit castes have been living in the village of Chamandih. His father and grandfather used to go to Gaya in search of work. This was the reason for settling in Chamandeeh, a short distance away from Gaya. Even today, the men here basically work as laborers. Women work in the fields of upper castes to break moong, in return for which they are given one-tenth of the day’s work as wages. They do not get any money.

On 22 May, a mountain of sorrows has broken on this Mahadalit hamlet. Notice has come from East Central Railway to vacate the land. It is written in the notice, “You have unauthorizedly taken possession of railway land at Chakand. You are advised to remove the illegal construction within 05 days of receipt of the letter, otherwise on any day after the said date, the unauthorized construction will be removed by the Railway Administration without advance notice and the goods recovered will be seized by the Railway Administration. Will be taken and the railway administration will not be responsible for any damage in order to remove unauthorized possession. Also, the expenses incurred in removing unauthorized possession will also be recovered from you. ”

Despite giving five days’ notice in the notice, on the third day of receipt of the letter, the railway officials had bulldozers at the houses. Many houses were demolished and the condition of many boundary wall was not able to survive. After the demolition of houses by the railway, a total of 350 members of about 33 families have been affected. So the men of the house are forced to spend the night at Chakand railway station and women in broken homes.

Ambuj Kumar Sinha, Senior Section Engineer, East Central Railway, Jehanabad, told that the railway terminal has been built in the land of Chamandih village where this Mahadalit Tola is located. Right now this terminal is in Gaya which is to be shifted. Ambuj’s signature is on the notice received by the railway.

After the construction was demolished, Giridhar Sapera (37) along with some people of the village went to meet Chandauti block’s zonal officer, Ashok Kumar and BDO Amit Kumar. Giridhar told, “The employee of his office took the letter citing the busyness of the officer (CO). On the other hand, the Block Development Officer (BDO) kept saying that the task of rehabilitation lies with the officer. Neither letter was received from either of them. Even after fifteen days the rehabilitation steps were not taken by the Zonal Officer and BDO. ”

Seeing the apathetic attitude of the administration, the villagers went to meet RJD MLA Surendra Yadav from Belaganj assembly constituency. The MLA summoned the zonal officer and after that, the magistrate reached Chamandih village for the first time. After coming to the village, he measured the land in ten minutes and went away. After that, almost a month passed, but neither the magistrate nor the administrative help reached the people.

Munni Devi told Newslaundry, “We have been living here for forty years. This land belongs to the railway, we did not even know. Our father and grandfather built houses here, marriage and marriage and death have happened here, where will we go now? ”

Gaya District Magistrate Abhishek Singh expressed ignorance on the matter in a conversation with Newslaundry. “We are not aware of this matter. Since this matter is coming to my notice through you, I will ask SDM to look into this matter, ”said District Magistrate Abhishek Singh.

Urmila Devi (51) does not even agree with DM’s point. She says, “We have given letters to DM Sahib with our own hands. With folded hands, say, Sir, if we provide people with a roof, otherwise we will have no choice but to commit suicide. ”

Meanwhile, monsoon rains are at their peak in South Bihar. People have covered the broken roofs with plastic in some way. Railways have also thrown junk in the toilet, people are now forced to defecate in the open. More than two months have passed since the railways have encroached and the continuation of response from the CO, BDO and DM is continuing. Surprisingly, no officer acknowledges the letters.

What is the acknowledgment most people of the hamlet do not know. The signature of the letter of the concerned officer of the administration means that the matter has come to the notice of the administration. But here, despite the knowledge of the matter to the administrative authorities, a skilled launch is being made to remain formally ignorant.

CO Ashok Kumar laid the blame of rehabilitation on the people of Mahadalit Tola. “We have sent our officials many times to inspect the rehabilitation land. There is no land in the said panchayat, so we have fixed the land of Korma Panchayat for rehabilitation, ”said the CO.

The CO disconnected the phone when asked how long it would take to rehabilitate. He failed all attempts to talk again. At the same time, BDO Amit Kumar said, “If affected families of Chamandih village come under rehabilitation, then as per rules they will get benefit from the Zonal Office.” It was clear that BDOs were putting their responsibilities on the forehead of the Zonal Officer.

Residents of Chamandih Mahadalit Tola dismiss the talk of CO completely. He is not ready to accept that there is fallow land in Chamandih village.

Ambuj Kumar Sinha, the section officer of the railway, also gave a statement about Palla. “Take possession of the railway land and then ask the railways to rehabilitate it.”

Runa Devi gestures with her hands and shows the pokhar and cemetery land. She says, “This is all government land. The people of Dabang caste are cultivating it. They do not want Mahadalits to be settled here. ”

Agreeing with Runa Devi, Girdhar Sapera shows the map. He explains, “Apart from Murdaghati east of Chakand station, Pokhar has 5 acres of 37 decimals of land. Pokhar also has three acres of land in the west. This is all government land. The people of the Yadav caste are farming in the pokhar land. But we are not ready to give even one inch of land to the landless. ”

It is not just the upper caste castes that the people of the Mahadalit community call out as the dominant castes. They also include OBC Yadavs, Kurmi castes living in the village among the Dabang castes. According to him, since the people of Mahadalit community have different living conditions, food habits are different and they do less in society, so OBC castes also discriminate against them.

However, in mid-June, the people of the village once again appealed to the officer. This time he reprimanded Girdhar and said, “If there is a hurry to rehabilitate, then find some land for rehabilitation itself.” What would not have happened, Girdhar agreed with the village officer and many more villages in his village. I gave information about fallow land. This hard work also went in vain and the magistrate paid no attention.

According to Urmila Devi, the zonal officer is upset with why Girdhar Sapera is trying to make correspondence repeated and make matters light. “Since Giridhar is the only BA pass boy among us. That tells us right and wrong. This thing is disturbed by the domineering castes of the village, how the boy from the snake catcher nut community read and wrote How he is so dumb that administrative correspondence needs acknowledgment. He tries to keep the Mahadalits of the Chamandih village organized, a matter that the domineering castes don’t like at all, ”said Urmila.

Probably the biggest reason for administrative apathy is the houses built under Indira Awas Yojana in Chamandih village. Out of a total of 33 houses, 10 houses were built under the ambitious Indira Awas Yojana of the Central Government.

Under Indira Awas Yojana, Meena Devi (50) received Rs 48,500 to build a house. Previously, his house was like the rest of the soil. “A few years ago, due to the government’s plan, his family was gradually trying to improve the standard of living. What we knew was that the shed for which the fields had sweated, that dream would be fulfilled. ”In 2017 also two houses have been built under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.

The big question arises that when these houses were unauthorized on government land, then how did they get the benefit of the government’s Indira Awas Yojana and Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana? Why did the administration not investigate it then? Who is responsible for the rehabilitation – Railways or Bihar government?

The Questions Included

However, there may be a long debate on these questions, but the reality is that the most exploited Mahadalit class of the society is being trampled under development. After the attempt to remove the encroachment by the railways, the Mahadalits of the village have stopped getting ration and kerosene oil under the public distribution system. The household chulhas are barely burning once. Mahadalits of Chamandih village are taking the pledge of mass suicide instead of fighting. Runa Devi’s eyes fill up, saying “upper caste leaders, upper caste officers, nobody is our listener.” Runa’s daughter’s wedding is scheduled on July 8 and she eats up wondering where the wedding procession will be and how the daughter will get married.

The Mahadalits of Chamandih had high hopes from former Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi. Girdhar says, “When Jitan Ram Manjhi was made the Chief Minister of Bihar, we felt that now our community will be uplifted. But he also did not help us.”

From Girdhar to Munni Devi and from Ritu Paswan to Urmila Devi, everyone in the newslaundry told suicide as the only option. Where immediate help is needed, the administration is busy preparing the foundation of deathbed. Seeing this arbitrary pace of development, we must definitely ask – whose development? For what and at what cost?


Who is this Sudha Bhardwaj?

Through this post, I want to introduce you to such a person, which is difficult for us to be like. These are the only children of the Konkani Brahmin family. Sudha Bhardwaj. A unionist, activist and lawyer. Instead of all these tail names, if you just call them ‘humans’, then believe that you will convey the word “Insaniyat” to his mayar.

I have known Sudha since 2005, but she put a dot on the forehead in a very simple veneer, for the women, peasants and weaker sections of the city and village of Chhattisgarh, with this extraordinary talent, excellent academic ability and great knowledge. I could not get acquainted with him even after working for almost three years. The big reason for this was that it was never a choice to tell them about themselves and publicize their work.

In 2008, when I had gone to Delhi for some work, a friend of mine got to read the article written by Sudha, former West Bengal finance minister, in an English daily about Sudha. After reading the article, he called me and told me about Sudha’s previous life, and I was stunned by comparing Sudha’s history with her simple and simple life.

I was surprised to learn that Sudha, who lives in a labor colony, is the topper of IIT Kanpur in 1978. He was an American citizen by birth, and has primary education in England. The common man cannot even imagine that a person from this back ground would be living with the laborers in their colony without milk, tea and rice.

Economics Department At The Best

Sudha’s mother Krishna Bhardwaj used to be the dean of the economics department at JNU, was an excellent classical singer and was also a contemporary of Amartya Sen. Even today, in memory of Sudha’s mother, Krishna Memorial Lecture is held every year in JNU, in which famous educationists and scholars of the country are present. Despite being a topper from IIT, Sudha could not keep her career charm open and due to her leftist tendencies she came in contact with Shankar Guha Niyogi, the charismatic union leader of Chhattisgarh in the 80s and then made Chhattisgarh her domain. took.

For more than 35 years, in Chhattisgarh, while fighting the battles of workers, peasants and the poor in the street and court, they blew all the money of their mother’s PF. His mother had bought a house in Delhi which is in his name nowadays but is just in the name. The house is on rent, whose order has been given to the tenant to deposit the rent in the account of Mazdoor Union.

The American citizenship that people are willing to do anything to get a bye berth, that American citizenship has been thrown in the American Embassy long ago.

The biggest names of social movement and social justice are rich in India and are known for their outreach and expansion beyond their work but for giving up their luxury at the cost of improving the condition of those for whom they are working. Never look ready Here is Sudha, who gave up her life in anonymity by abandoning the pretense of being an American citizen and IIT topper.

The body of Sudha, who has been politely turned down without any fee, advocates for the gurus and has been made a high court judge, wants to answer. His knees have been worn running for 35-40 years. His friend doctor wants to tie him to bed. But as soon as the poor, farmer and laborer hear a small scream, their feet get hit and then they do not listen to their body.

Due to his extreme leftism, I have ideological differences with him, but I have always bowed down in front of his dedication and passion for his work. I say with the claim that if they had even propagated 10 percent of their work, there would not be any such award in the world that would not have felt honored to have got them. It is not my fault for you Sudha could only be Sudha and no one else.

Story of Narmada hitchhiker

He traveled the entire four thousand kilometers on the banks of the river Narmada. If someone is together, it is okay, if I do not get it alone If you found a place somewhere, slept, if you got food somewhere, then you filled your stomach. Everything was very silent, silently and when the memoirs from that journey came out through words and underlines, the entire form of Narmada came out.

Amritlal Vegad remained young in his eagerness to understand, save and groom every particle of Narmada till his last breath i.e. at the age of ninety. He wrote the entire account of his journey in three books. The first book, ‘River of Narmada’, came out in 1992 and has sold eight volumes so far. Vegadji starts his book- “Sometimes I ask myself, why did I take this risky journey? And every time I had the answer, if I did not travel, my life would have been wasted. Whatever work is made for, it must do that work and I am made for the Narmada padyatra. ”

Start Of An Incredible Journey

Vengadji started his first journey in 1977 when he was 50 years old and his last journey was in 1987 at the age of 82. For more than four thousand kilometers, he walked on the banks of this river. These books detail ten journeys of these eleven years. The author not only sees the beauty of the flow of folk or river in his journey, he also discusses the changes and displacement coming due to Bargi Dam, Indira Sagar Dam, Sardar Sarovar etc.

The journey from one end of Narmada to the other end is 1,312 km long. That means the entire 2614 km long orbiter. According to the rules, there is a law to complete the parikrama in three years, three months and 13 days. Obviously, in such a long journey, no matter how many stories, how many scenes, how many experiences the traveler saves, and if that traveler is a painter or a storyteller, then the taste of the journey is not limited to himself.

He was originally a painter and had studied art from Shanti Niketan of Guru Rabindranath Tagore from 1948 to 1953, then taught painting at a college in Jabalpur. Only then, in his travelogue, it has been taken care that when the reader spreads the words, a living picture emerges in his mind and brain. As the author observes the crescent rotation of the river, “Mandla is as if it is situated in the Karna-Kundal of Narmada.”

It is also being taken care of in their expressions that what is said in the pictures should not be repeated in words, rather the pictures should work to expand the expression of those words. They present their emotions so effortlessly that the reader becomes their companion. The author expressed these evocations in the chapter ‘Chinggaon to Amarkantak’ when he was in a village on the day of Diwali while traveling.

“After all, I am not gone.” Asked for a lamp from a woman and burned it with her hand and left it in the tank. Then the mind said, ‘Mother, Narmade, a lamp is lit in your worship. In return you also light a lamp – in my heart. It is very dark there, does not go in any way. If you light a lamp, then it goes away. I ask for this much alms So light the lamp, well? “A dialogue with the river as well as with the reader.

The biggest thing in this book is that it does not just talk about the water stream, creatures, flora, nature, fields, birds, humans, living with it have all been embodied in it and told how the river is just a water resource No, but the basic premise of human life from death. Its sand is also as important as the water stream and fish in it is as important as the churning of the earth by the hooves of the cattle coming on its banks.

In chapter 13, he writes, “The tiny trunks and small particles of the Narmada coast must have been known by the attrition of so many altruists, sages and sages. There must have been alam of countless sages in the forests here. There he must have considered religion, discovered life values ​​and spread the light of culture. Our culture was Aranyak culture. but now? We have cut down those sacred forests and drove or killed animals and birds. What a betrayal is this with the earth. ”

Vegadji says that this is his sincere attempt to understand and explain Narmada and he wishes that if such a river which looted on others could flow into our sines, then our civilization-culture could be saved and destroyed. There is a civilization in the cities, but the culture is left a bit in the villages and the poor.

After reading this book, one gets a new vision to understand Narmada, the desire to read the other two books of the author is also awakened. It is important to know that people may make big claims about the best seller, but Anupam Mishra still has Khare after the pond. Begarji’s books will probably be among the best-selling Hindi books. Their number is more than two lakhs.


Jamia Milia Islamia Women’s Hostel or imprisonment

About 250 girl students of Jamia Millia Islamia have written an open letter to Vice Chancellor Talat Ahmed in protest against the change in the curfew time of the hostel and the new guidelines. In this letter submitted to the Vice Chancellor on July 3, the students have sought feedback from the college administration in 72 hours.

Before the start of the semester, the curfew time has been reduced from 10:30 pm to 9 pm in the guidelines issued for girl students on 27 June. In March, Jamia students campaigned against unfair curfew time in the name of “security”. After this campaign, the curfew time was reduced from 8 pm to 10:30 pm. Now change is being tried once again.

Not only the change in the time of female hostel curfew but also according to the new rules, the girl students cannot participate in the protest or signature campaign at the time of hostel or against any rules. According to the rules, if a student does not follow these conditions, then the membership of her hostel can be canceled with immediate effect.

A third year student of Jamia’s mass media told Newslaundry on condition of anonymity, ‘Jamia Milia Islamia has no hostel for women’. He also told, ‘This is an attempt to intimidate the female students, now the students cannot even raise their voice.’

According to the hostel guidelines, the inter-hostel gates will be closed at 11.30, that is, the girls can stay in their own hostels inside the hostel campus after that. According to the rules, now we cannot use the washing machine after 11 pm. Earlier there were no such restrictions. ”A student studying economics told Newslaundry.

Impact Of The Step

“This step of the hostel administration is to completely break the confidence of the students as curfew time has been reduced again,” says Syma Hassan, a third-year student of psychology. On the protest, she said, “We protest again And this time the protest will be bigger, unfair rules of administration will not be tolerated. ”

According to Pinjar Tod, an organization that has been instrumental in protesting against hostel rules, the administration’s decision “violates our fundamental rights to register and hold protests.” Pinjar break called it “women’s freedom And in the last session, on March 19, the protests by the girls have been described as a tough attack ”.

This organization has also said that there are no such rules for boys hostels. These instructions are the way of administration to suppress the voice of women and keep women marginalized in the college campus.

To find out the reasons for implementing the new rules, Newslaundry spoke to Warden of Jamia’s Women’s Hostel. Warden Farheen Zehra of the hostel said that, “These guidelines have been implemented by higher officials, and this decision has been welcomed by many parents and students.”

Demanding equal rights in Jamia, the girls have refused to kneel in front of the hostel administration and if the university opens on July 15, Vice Chancellor Talat Ahmed does not reconsider these rules and no positive results are forthcoming. Will protest

Newslaundry has also tried to get an official view from Jamia’s vice-chancellor office in this regard but so far no reply has been received from him. This report will be updated on getting a response.

Hundreds of years old practice of politics from Khilafat to Modi

When Prophet Muhammad left this world, after closing his eyes, some of his companions closed their bodies in a room and got involved in a debate about who would take over the reins after the Prophet. On the other hand, the dead body of the Prophet was locked in a room, on the other hand elections were being held for the new ruling who would become the kingpin of Islamic rule.

Some powerful people jointly got together and declared the first Khalifa Abubakar. Khalifa means the successor of the Prophet. Heir means not the heir to the Prophet’s “spiritual” heritage, but the heir to the legacy of Islamic rule. And when the first Khalifa was elected, those who considered the Prophet to be their spiritual master, strongly opposed this “political” game. People were not ready to believe that after all, why should we accept the words of these Caliphs and why should we accept them as our religious leaders?

The newly formed Khalifa got angry at the opposition of the people. He felt that now he is the one who is the real heir. Therefore, he waged war against every person who opposed Khilafat. Thousands, millions died. And all this happened within a few weeks of Prophet Muhammad leaving this world. Those of a sect of Islam, who later came to be called Shia, rejected this political Islam completely and became enemies of the remaining Muslims. From there various religions of Islam started.

Now the most important thing in this incident is that there is no mention of anyone becoming a caliph or successor of Muhammad in the Quran. Nor in any hadith. Even during his lifetime, Muhammad has never said that after me there will be any caliph. In one or two hadith, a little gesture is found towards Ali, but he is not even sure and he is not like that Ali will take the throne after me. There is nothing like this anywhere. So there is no complete concept of Khilafat or succession in Islam. Any concept of any kind of king and emperor is contrary to the basic teachings of Islam. It is totally against the basic principles of Islam.

Why Sudden Change Though?

But what happened? The Muslim caliphs were so bothered that they could fight among themselves. And it was only because of the caliphate that they were powerful, powerful, ruling, rich in wealth and removing whomever they wanted. Therefore, all the political greedy were gradually with the caliphs. They began to help the Caliphs in increasing power, and at one time it came that the majority of the Caliphate believers and those who opposed them remained in one corner of the confederation.

I often wondered what kind of stupid people must have been who, despite knowing that all this Khilafat is against the teachings of Islam and this is neither mentioned in the Qur’an nor in the Hadith, yet a large number of Muslims How did it start to consider Islam?

This happened just like it is happening in India today. It is the same scene and the same script and the same environment. Such were the ruling few people who killed, pressured and crushed every person who said that “you people are greedy for power and not our religious leaders”. Whoever refused to pay zakat was told by the Caliphate supporters that our soldiers are dying on the border, the whole country will one day be occupied by Jews and Christians and you have to refuse zakat? Die hungry but keep giving zakat to the power so that the power can spread further.

In exactly the same way, nowadays the public is explaining to each other in hundreds WhatsApp group that you people will bet the country for cheap petrol? Others like Rahul, Akhilesh are not Hindus anywhere, they are all “Sanatani Mushrekin” or “Sanatani Kafir”. So stand up against them. Go hungry, ruin the business, let the business of business cease, but let the “Caliphate” take power. There is no development, no development, no unemployment. The only thing is how Modi will stay in power and how he will win again. This is the only objective and this is the idea.

The Arabic caliphs removed every one of their opponents from their path, saying that they are all infidels, and enemies of Islam. Whoever came in protest said this to everyone. And even after fourteen hundred years, those with religious authority have the same passion and the same loyalty for their caliphs. Even today, if you say something to one caliph, then it will become your enemy and if it is settled then it will also take your life.

One of the most interesting things in this whole episode is to consider that the priests of the new Caliph of India are called priests of the Arabic Caliphate as Gahil and out-dated. On the other hand, those who believe in Arabic caliphs call these Indian caliph devotees Gahil and Donkey. They explain to them that your religion has become a political religion and they understand them. They will say to them that no sky book has come from the sky, but they themselves will search the internet in the Mahabharata period and their caliph will tell them the virtues of surgery of the gods, then they will.

You can see comfortably that Shias have come to Sanatan too. The one who supports Rahul, Kejriwal and Akhilesh is Shia, ie Sanatani Mushrekin. And the rest of the majority Sanatani Sunni. Tadka is all the same, the flavor is new.

Come, welcome to the new kingdom of Khilafat of the twenty-first century.


33rd Hanson: Hypocrisy of morality and morality of hypocrisy

When the fundamental values ​​of democracy are in crisis, an event keeping it at the center has the backdrop of torture, the contemporaneity of cruelty and finally the expectation of conscience. These types of events continue to thrive in societies that have the capacity to think and understand. At the beginning of them, there is an analysis of the ending humanity and finally a call for a new humanity. Actually, it is to walk in a sinking time — in a sea of ​​noises — speaking in the light, recognizing darkness.

Every year the 33rd event of the literary monthly magazine ‘Hans’ held in Delhi on Premchand’s birth anniversary (31 July) this time focused on ‘Ethics of Democracy and Democracy of Morals’. ‘Hans’ editor Sanjay Sahai recalled Rajendra Yadav, former editor of ‘Hans’, saying his death was premature, as he should have lived at least 500 years. Here is a scene in which when the protagonist of a poem of Muktibodh returns home with a bewildered symbol and smiling form, Upmaas comes to the door and tells him that he should live for a hundred years.

No Need Of The Word

However, these days around us people are being killed unnecessarily by their own people. Priyadarshan, the director of this hansijan, while referring to his fellow journalists searching for the meaning of mob lynching in Hindi, said that there is no need to search for Hindi meaning for it, mob lynching should be out of our dictionary as soon as possible.

Social activists recognize the cases of mob lynching that occurred in Harsha Mandar in the years gone by, and the growing hatred of the unknown Muslims among the unknown Hindus. As a collector, he has vast experience of Gujarat riots. He believes that in the meantime, there were more people who were saved than those who killed, but today values ​​like compassion and sympathy have gone far away from our life-behavior.

Remembering Rajendra Yadav in Hansayojana, every speaker considers his primary responsibility, then how can political thinkers and Dalit activists like Kancha Ilaiah Shepherd remain untouched by this. He spoke on the history of persecution in English and in this order Rajendra Yadav was first declared the head of North India and then the greatest Shudra writer of the world.

Krishna Kumar, reputed as an educationist and sociologist, described democracy as part of management science. He admitted that some things are rotting, education is also one of them. He advocated silence and while referring to his friend Apoorvananda said that I have asked him to be silent, he has been resisting for four years, but nothing happened. They should understand that being silent is also a kind of resistance. All the words have lost their meaning now, we should keep quiet to create new words.

Indira Jaising, who was chosen among the 50 most powerful women in the Forbes list, spoke in English as per her profession (advocacy). He referred to his experiences with the Supreme Court, and favored assertiveness, not silence.

Later, Syeda Hameed, who belonged to the family of Altaf Hussain Hali, reminded the statement of Hali of 1879 in which he said that every Urdu person should read Sanskrit and Hindi, and every Hindi one should read Urdu. He narrated Faiz Ahmad Faiz’s famous speech in jail, ‘Nisar main tiri lali ke ai watan ki jah / chali hai ritual koi na sir uth ke chala …’ “with emotion.

In all our activities, the intellectuals around us seem to propose this luminous thing that now we need to rethink everything. This new end is so new that the courage to open it and face it, merges into a glow.

Pratap Bhanu Mehta, the Chancellor of Ashoka University and a well-known columnist, also propagates this type of intellectualism as the last speaker of the Hansayojana. Speaking in Hindi, he talks about freedom, equality, fraternity and constitution becoming words of arms. Previously, these words were weapons in other sense, now in the sense of words, they are in completely different meanings. Possibility of understanding in the language is over. In this way, the scope of literature, public works and democracy is no more.

Pratap Bhanu Mehta seems like a person disillusioned with the activities that make the consents agree. Looking for them — who really should listen to us and believe in us. This type of search ends by going on introspection, while solution is a phenomenon ahead of it. He raises the question, are we really moral people? Is our life really the norm of morality? He himself answers that in fact, we are all hypocrites. Today, the first thing of our morality is to show the hypocrisy of someone. Hypocrisy is a psychological weapon. The game of hypocrisy is the most dangerous game of democracy. It is the easiest to show hypocrisy, no credibility is required, just a little doubt is required.

After going through this type of discussion, it seems that our society is a die-hard person and our intellectuals, their family members who want to take it up on the escalator to somewhere, while he is very afraid to climb the escalator. In this situation, Pratap Bhanu Mehta considers nationalism to be a violation of human rights, saying that he cannot live without an enemy. After this, he slowly builds nationalism with an identity. He considers identity politics as something like nationalism. And finally new personal identity, new human rights and

Need to think afresh on everything

Mahakavi Gulzar of this era has said for similar occasions:

“From where to where?”

This was not news but

Any tip where found

That’s where you’ll meet.

Deoria: ‘Girls used to go in white and black cars, used to return crying’

‘In the evening, the girls were taken from the girl’s house in white and black cars, in the morning they returned crying and their eyes were swollen.’

This statement is allegedly from an innocent 10-year-old girl. This girl somehow got out of the hell of ‘Vindhyavasini Devi Social Service and Training Institute’, a girl’s home in Deoria, and reached the women’s police station there on 5 August.

The story of this girl child is exactly like Muzaffarpur in Bihar, with the atmosphere from the road to the Parliament is hot.

The statements of innocent girl are shocking. The Deoria police conducted a raid on the girls’ home run by the NGO Maa Vindhyavasini Devi Samaj Seva and Training Institute and freed 24 girls and women on the late night of the 5th. This girl house is located on the station road of Deoria.

Complaint Lodged

The shocking information related to the mother Vindhyavasini girl house is also that its irregularities were investigated by the CBI in the past and its recognition was canceled in June 2017 only on the basis of the irregularities. The district probation officer of Deoria had filed a case against the head of the organization and the superintendent of this organization illegally a week ago.

Despite this, it is difficult to believe that despite the sexual exploitation of minor girls in an illegally run institution, the district administration was not aware of this.

After the action of the police, Deoria SP Rohan P Kanay informed the media on 5 August at a quarter past eleven at a press conference. He said, “A girl who ran away from the girl child had alleged that she was being mopped. On the same basis, four police teams have raided the women constable. Five employees of the girl child house are being interrogated.

Kanay further explained, “Prima facie, sexual abuse of girls is also coming to the fore. The entire matter is being investigated. ”SP said that according to the records of the institution, a total of 42 girls and women were living here. 24 of which have been found on the spot. The remaining girls are currently missing. The police is tracing them.

21 of the 24 girls were rescued from the station road branch of the mother Vindhyavasini Girls’ Home and three girls were recovered from another center, Rajla.

A news in the Gorakhpur edition of Dainik Hindustan states that the Children’s Home, Girls’ Home and the Children’s Home are run on the station road of the city under the aegis of the mother Vindhyavasini Devi Social Service and Training Institute. It was not getting government grant for almost three years. This matter is also in court. District Probation Officer Abhishek Pandey had issued a notice calling it an institution illegal. About a week ago, with the help of the police, they tried to free the girls kept here, and the people of the institution had turned on violent protest. After which the team had to return.

After this, District Probation Officer Abhishek Pandey filed an FIR against the Director of the organization Girija Tripathi and Superintendent Kanchanlata in Kotwali. The police raided the institution at around 9.30 pm on Sunday night. There was a stir as soon as the action started. During this time, 24 girls and women were freed and taken into their custody.

According to the news of Amar Ujala, another newspaper reported that a 10-year-old girl, who complained to the police, was told that after four o’clock in the evening, some people used to come in black and white cars everyday and some would take the girls. Were. The girls used to return till late at night. She also told that while taking the girls, Madam (the director) used to accompany her. Wrong things happen to the girl child in the girl’s home. According to the girl, brooms and other household chores were also done from her.

In his press conference, SP Kanay told that the names of 42 girls and women of different age groups are recorded in the register of the girl child. 18 girls were not found on the spot after matching. In this regard, the Director of the organization Smt. Girija Tripathi and her husband Mohan Tripathi could not give satisfactory answers. Both have been arrested.

930 girls in girl child in three years

If we trust the daily news of India, Girija Tripathi, the director of Balik Griha, has also questioned the role of police and administration.

When the media questioned Girija Tripathi who was in police custody, his sharp answer came in the form of a question. He said- if their institution was illegal then why did the police send 930 girls to the girl child in the last three years. Girija said, “For three years I have been running a girl child on the basis of my resources. When the bill of your expenses is sent to the administration, you do not have to pay the bill, so the raid has been taken. ”

Girija Tripathi’s answer to this question is not even with the police administration. The officers were seen cutting the tusks with the question that an inquiry is being conducted as to how all this happened.

Administration Falls

District Magistrate of Deoria Sujit Kumar, accused of negligence in the case of action on the girl child house, has been transferred. Amit Kishore has been made the new DM of Deoria. In this case, the current DPO Prabhat Kumar former DPO Abhishek Pandey has also been suspended. Apart from this, instructions have also been given for departmental action on two interim DPOs Neeraj Kumar and Anoop Singh.

Meanwhile, the incident of Deoria has increased political stir in the state. The attacks of opposition parties have intensified. The government hurried into this matter

The action has started. State Women and Child Welfare Minister Rita Bahuguna Joshi has come out with a statement that the Girl Child Protection Home was running unofficially. Many times notices were given to close this conservation home. The matter is very serious, will be investigated at every point. It will be identified whether there was body trade here or not?

Dr. Rita Joshi said that we have sent a team from Lucknow there. A report has also been sought from the Principal Secretary, Women and Child Welfare.

Meanwhile, the latest information is that on the orders of the government, the next day at 4 pm, Additional Chief Secretary Child Welfare Department Renuka Kumar and ADG Women’s Helpline Anju Gupta reached Deoria for investigation. He held a meeting with the local authorities for about two hours and inquired about all aspects of the case.

After exiting the meeting, Renuka Kumar told media persons that the investigation of the case is going on. Only something can be told after investigation.

On 6 August, the entire administrative staff spent the entire day combing the information related to the girl’s home. Investigation has also started. The SDM questioned the girls and women who were freed from the girl’s home. He was given medical treatment at the district hospital. On the other hand, the head of the girl child and her husband were questioned by top police officers. Political movement in Lucknow and Deoria intensified. Opposition parties termed the incident as an extension of Muzaffarpur scandal in Bihar and alleged that despite the postponement of recognition, the girls and women rescued by the police continued to be sent to this girl child. Which indicates the association’s deep connection with politicians and bureaucracy. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has ordered a thorough investigation in the case.

Attack on Omar Khalid and the slang of Hindi newspapers

In journalism, there are debates from classes to newsrooms on the principle of journalistic fairness. It is also a fact that no one is completely neutral. But there is a word associated with it, that is, to tell what it is. Objectivity is the only thing that keeps personal favoritism from dominating journalism.

Some people find the principles of journalistic fairness and objectivity to be bogus. According to him, the power calls for fairness to write or speak in its favor. That is why critics vote on the opinion of journalists. One thing that is expected of all journalists to be unanimous, despite the different opinions on questions of fairness and objectivity, is the fact that facts are true.

On Monday afternoon, JNU student Umar Khalid was attacked outside the Constitution Club. Omar along with his colleagues (who were also eyewitnesses) described the entire development in detail in statements given to the media. Omar went to drink tea with two of his colleagues outside the costume club. There, a man in white shirt pushed Omar from behind and pointed the pistol towards him. Omar kept removing his hand. His colleagues tried to nab the attacking man. In this tussle, Umar immediately got up and ran inside the costume club and the attacker ran to the other side of the road. All this happened within a minute.

How Did He Escape?

Khalid Saifi, a partner of Omar, tried to chase the attacker, but according to Saifi and others present, the attacker fired air, after which he escaped by throwing a pistol. Umar Khalid also said this in a conversation with the media.

The news of the murderous attack on Omar Khalid was preferred in many newspapers. But despite being printed on the first page, Dainik Bhaskar and Dainik Jagran (Delhi edition) set an example of abusive reporting. Almost ignoring the facts, the statement of the victim or any eyewitness, Bhaskar made the news.

Dainik Bhaskar recreates the incident. Bhaskar wrote that the attacker pushed Omar and then fired. “He pushed Omar and opened fire. Khalid fell from the shock and the bullet passed by him.” Bhaskar further wrote, In the investigation, the police are denying that the shooting was going on.

At the same time, Dainik Jagran made the title of his news, “Young man fleeing Umar Khalid after Nokzhonk, fired in the air”. The essence of Jagran’s news was that Omar and the alleged attackers had been talking among themselves for a long time. It started to fizzle about anything between them. After this, the attacker ran away shooting. This was completely false news. According to Omar and his associates, the attacker did not have any conversation with him. This whole incident is only a few minutes. Apparently, Jagran was telling his news so that the attacker and Khalid knew each other.

Not only this, Dainik Jagran also told Omar the former leader of JNU Students Union. It was told in the news that Omar was supposed to give a speech in the freedom program from fear. Jagran even wrote that the attacker fired on Omar and he escaped. Then further wrote that the attacker fired in the air near the INS building.

By reading the news of Jagran, the reader will also be baffled as to where Omar was standing and where the bullet went.

Both the reports seem to have been written in their imagination, giving the facts a hue and cry. Perhaps it is also an issue of commitment of both newspapers. Both Dainik Bhaskar and Dainik Jagran are the most read newspapers in the Hindi belt. The news of these two newspapers related to Omar seems like a planned move to play with the facts.

Perhaps the source of Bhaskar’s news was his bureau chief Santosh Kumar. A video of Santosh was shared widely on social media, in which he shows how the two boys got banged up and showed a boy running away. In the video, he announced that Omar was not present on that occasion.

BJP was immediately picked up by many politicians and some journalists and various speculations started. For example, Omar was not attacked. He wants to be a hero, so this drama is being composed. And even Omar himself has created an attack game. However, later Santosh Kumar of Bhaskar made it clear on Twitter – “They don’t know whether the running boy was Omar or not.”

The events which Santosh told, the same events were also told by Omar.

On the other side is Jagran, whose reporter could not even check that Omar has never been the leader of JNU Students’ Union. He is an active member of Basso. Omar was not a speaker in the freedom program in awe. He reached there as a listener. Jagran and Bhaskar presenting the news in this way can be a part of personal bias or the editorial policy of the newspaper.

The newspapers of the Hindi belt have played a role in preparing public opinion against JNU, Omar, Shehla Rashid and Kanhaiya. These newspapers also did not consider it necessary to ask some very important questions in their prejudice. For example, just two hundred meters away from Parliament House, two days before Independence Day, how did such an incident happen in broad day, where the police missed, etc.
