Shinde suffering from verbal diarrhoea Each session of the All India Congress Committee seems to be an ultimate exercise in sycophancy and the return of durbar culture. The recent session has taken the Congress to its lowest when the Home Minister accused the RSS and BJP of running training camps to spread terrorism! Shinde was in a tearing hurry to give thanks to his political masters for rewarding him with the charge of internal security and forgiving his dismal performance as the country’s power minister. In his hurry he seems to have forgotten that he holds an office responsible for ensuring the rule of law in our country. Instead of doing that, he chose the venue of AICC to disclose his findings and to ensure himself a pivotal position among cheerleaders of the so-called emerging young leader of the nation. Shinde doesn’t want to be left behind in this great marketing and sales melodrama. He wouldn’t fail his masters if it comes to killing the competition. After all he is the one who was entrusted by his masters with all the weapons including intelligence, investigation mechanism and machinery to prosecute and defame the innocent.

Manmohan’s dubious defence of coalgate (Organiser,9.9.2012); This is with reference to the front page news item in Organiser, ‘Manmohan’s dubious defence of coalgate’. At the outset I appreciate the boldness of Arun Jaitley in exposing in detail the lies of our unworthy PM, Manmohan Singh. As a layman I understand that democracy is the rule of people, for the people, but here in India it is dictatorship in the guise of democracy. Electorates are shouting from rooftops that UPA is a government corrupt, for the corrupt and of the corrupt but this so-called democratically elected UPA is not caring at all. Had it been any other developed nation like Britain or America the political head would have resigned and made way to others to rule and develop the nation. These allegations of Arun Jaitley are solid documentary evidences.Ironically CBI and Judiciary is abused to glorify criminals, corrupt and traitor politicians and tarnish the image of patriotic and well-wishers of India. The given allocation of 142 coal blocks causing loss to the national exchequer to the tune 1.86 lakh crore and more didn’t made any impact on shameless UPA.

What makes Hinduisim different from other religions?(Organiser, 2.12.2012); This refers to “What makes Hinduism different from other religions?” by Dr Sitesh Alok in Organiser dated December 2nd and 9th, 2012. He has correctly said that “Dharma lays emphasis on people’s moral and ethical conduct for happy universal co-existance.” It must be stressed that it should be called “Hindu Dharma” and not “Hinduism” or “Hindu religion” because Hindus believe in “Dharma” which is universal and eternal. Therefore it does not change with time. This Hindu Dharma or Sanatan Dharma is based on Vedas as its original source. This is accepted by practically all the sects and sub-sects of the Hindus.

We are wasting too much energy on Paki barbarians (Organiser, 3.2.2013);After years of soaring oratory and useless exchange of talks should we still believe in Pakistan whose policy is evasiveness and back stabbing? It is like saying one thing at breakfast and the opposite at supper! Let alone lasting peaceful agreement, even an iota of reconciliation between the two countries will ever happen—Never. A lethal stalemate has come to exist. No one can solve it for when Pakistan was created a deep chasm opened and till now we have never been able to build a bridge. Isn’t there a wide gap between the Islamic crescent and the Hindu full moon? The rise of fundamentalism has made it impossible for both the countries to find a solution for this impasse. That US is making overtures, should ring a bell in the obdurate heads of our Prime Minister and his coterie. Don’t ever woo the Muslims in our country who refuse to be Bharatiyas, nor do they want to shift to Pakistan. Trying to straddle two banks will end up in drowning.

Ignorance of Rashid Alvi The person who has no capacity to comprehend the distinction between national security and politics has been assigned the job of a spokesperson of Congress. As usual BJP has shamelessly been indicted by Rashid Alvi by saying that issue of savage killing of two Indian jawans by PoK monsters has been politicised by the BJP. It has become a fashion of the Congress Party to censure BJP for its comments and accusing BJP for giving political colour to sensitive issues. Ignoramus person like Rashid Alvi should not be made spokesperson of any political party. He should learn lesson on difference between national security and politics.

Karnataka Cow Bill Already more than two weeks have passed, BJP led Karnataka government have passed the amended Karnataka Cow Bill in both the Houses of Assembly (in which necessary directives provided by the Governor were incorporated, like deletion of ‘He-Buffalo’ and ‘She–Buffalao’ and forwarded to the Governor of Karnataka for his assent). But, as on date no response nor any feedback has been obtained from his office. The ‘Cow activists’ of Karnataka are very much disappointed by this move, who were also denied appointment with the Governor. This clearly shows the stepmotherly treatment by a Governor appointed by the UPA Government to any non-Congress-I State. We appeal to the Central Government to provide assent to the Karnataka Cow Bill leaving aside any petty politics of caste/creed and vote-bank.
Islam and West clash over burqa and bikini (Organiser 6.1.2013); Apropos of Shri S Gurumuthy’s 30th installment on Shri Guruji Golwalkar in Organiser. The learned writer has very light heartedly put the clash between Islam and the west over symbols—burqa and the bikini. In fact burqa is for modesty, chastity and nobility. Whereas bikini is for nudity, rascality and permissiveness. There was no need to be overjoyed over the clash as the former values are also recognised by the Hindu society and I firmly believe that no genuine Hindu would ever tolerate the bikini culture or the play boy’s culture. Depicting the Prophet in bad colours is the outrageous bent of mind the west have cherished under the guise of the so-called freedom of expression. It is a hysterical moment the whole western society is passing through it. It is going to collapse under its own heavy weight. The poet Iqbal had said, “Your culture would suicide itself with its own dagger. As it is like the nest woven on a fragile bough.”

Aisa hota rehta hai! Why our two soldiers who were killed by Pakistan army and one of the decapitate too acted so shot shy, when they had seen through their binoculars that Pakistan infiltrators were five hundred meters inside the Indian territory and did not shoot them. Was it due to their absent mindedness or were ordered not to react due to the vote-bank strategy. Further the laying of mines by Pakistanies deep inside Indian territory and then return safely to Pakistan does not speak high of our defence preparedness. Is it due to short man power, equipment or casual attitude, aisa hota rehta hai.

Swami Vivekananda: The warrior Prophet of India (Organiser, 27.1.2013) Congratulations for the wonderful Republic Day & Vivekananda Special issue you brought out. Beautiful and informative articles by esteemed writers ! T. Satisan’s article “A grand project to commemorate Swami Vivekananda; executed magnificently” is giving a chronological order of the saga of Vivekananda Rock Memorial. It is very much significant because still majority of our compatriots do not know anything about the involvement of RSS and its workers in materialising the dream of Vivekananda Rock Memorial. They believe that the monument was constructed by the government. RSS really deserves the credit for what they did. I take this opportunity to say that your editorial “Vivekananda, The Warrior Prophet Of Virile Hindutva” is a wonderful work. It throws light on the philosophies Swamiji loved to propagate. It gives the readers the rare chance to taste the sweetness of Swamiji’s greatness. May we expect more works like this.

National Dairy Research Institute National Dairy Research Institute as the premier Dairy Research Institution is marching ahead with its research, teaching and extension activities with sole aim of augmenting diary development in the country. Being the national institute it continues to conduct basic and applied research with the objective to enhance animal productivity and also to develop cost effective technologies for the benefit of the consumers, the industry and the farmers. The institute, having the statues of deemed university, is contributing significantly to Human Resource Development through its Under graduate and Post graduate training/teaching programmes. Looking at the present monumental set-up of the National Dairy Research Institute, the premier Institution of dairying in Asia, one just cannot dispense with the historical way of looking at its pristine grandeur.
The foundation stone of edifice of national Dairy Research Institute was laid with the establishment of Imperial Institute for Animal Husbandry and Dairying at Bangalore on July, 1923. In 1936, it was expanded and renamed as Imperial Dairy Institute. The most important event in the history of the Imperial Institute for Animal Husbandry and Dairying was the training imparted to Mahatma Gandhi and Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya in1927. In 1955, the Institute Headquarters were shifted to Karnal and it was rechristened as National Dairy Research Institute. The Institute was brought under the wings of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research in 1966 in order to provide greater operational autonomy in research management functions. The first formal dairy technology course was started in Indian at NDRI in 1957. An important milestone in the history of NDRI was added in 1989 when the institute was conferred the status of deemed university for further strengthening the academic programmes for human resource development. In 1994, the Institute got recognition as a Centre of Advanced Studies in Dairy Technology and Dairy Cattle Breeding disciplines to further strengthen the research and training components.
