Save These Species

Nature has created life on earth in such a way that everyone here has a role to play whether they are humans, trees, insects, birds or animals. There role are distributed in such a way to maintain a balance in the ecosystem. Humans being the most intelligent of all species in their quest to know to discover and to have more unintentionally or intentionally disturbed this natural balance which is resulting in extinction of some species. While we can't do anything to bring back the extinct species we can do many things to preserve and save the endangered species not for their sake but also for our own sake.

Ashok Mahindra in his book Capturing Wildlife Moments of India have photographed some endangered species of India to highlight the need of conserving them.

1. Bengal Tiger : What a PM is to India the Tiger is to the Jungle. He is the ultimate king. We have few tigers left in the country thanks to shrinking forests and increase illegal hunting. Although there are efforts to conserve them but still the threat of there extinction is not over. We all knew the famous story of formation of Sahara desert the mass hunting of carnivores increased number of herbivores resulting in eating up of all greenery of that area which later became reason for their own deaths when a green forest turned into a desert. Conservation of tiger is necessary to maintain the balance of nature and to restrict the extinction of other species of flora and fauna.

2. Gharial : Indian crocodile species is known as Gharial. They mainly eat small fish,insects and frogs. They are among the critically endangered species. Their conservation is must to save them from extinction. This species is beautiful example of nature's way of maintaining the balance. They are found in the regions favorable for fish growth, since their main diet is fish they keep check on the numbers of fish thus maintaining balance of that particular water body.

3. Indian Peacock : Only those who have seen a dancing peacock knew what others are missing. The joy felt by peacock in rain transfers to the onlookers with much high magnitude feeling their hearts with joy and positive energy. Their extinction would mean the end of that pleasure bestowed by nature on us. The peacock regarded as national bird of India need to be conserved for its beauty and purity. Its numbers are degrading in spite it being auspicious for many traditions which is alarming and needs our urgent attention.

 Moreover these species are unique to India. There identities are associated with our country, when one see them one remembers India. It is for this reason that their conservation required collective efforts of the nation. Each one of us must understand their value and further instill love for them in our generations to come.

Vyapam Scam

Vyapam Scam

Madhya Pradesh's Vyapam scam is again in News after one more death of the person related to the MP Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal(Vyapam) which took the toll to 44. The mysterious deaths of accused and witnesses is pointing towards a bigger conspiracy and indicating the involvement of bigger names in the scam. The fire of this scam is also touching the office of Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Shivraj Singh Chauhan who is not acting promptly in the investigation.

The biggest recruitment scam in examinations including pre-medical entrance test and government jobs including teachers,food inspectors, sub inspectors,police constables ,etcetera  hints at involvement of Rashtriya Swamswvak Sangh (RSS) functionaries along with the governor and CM. The RSS was trying to post the members adhered to their ideology in the important government department posts thus to impart and spread their orthodox and fragmenting teachings in the masses. The majoritarianism thinking of RSS was previously responsible for partition of India ( along with Muslim's League) and riots and hate crimes after Independence of the country. This scam thus is a threat to internal security and democracy of the country.

The scam is more dangerous because the doctors,engineers and even police constables were inducted by cheating and fraud and now the deaths of many accused and witnesses have threatened the emergence of truth in the public domain. Some other witnesses also facing death threats and are either living in fear with police protection in MP or have escaped in other cities for the fear of their life. 

Why MP chief minister is not recommending CBI (Central Bureau Of Investigation) probe in the scam? Why SIT was formed only after High Courts interference? Why the mysterious deaths of accused and witnesses was labeled as normal by the state government? Why the party which promises corruption free governance is defending its CM and not demanding CBI inquiry? All the questions must be answered before someone else related to Vyapam fall prey to death.

World Yoga Day - New Aasan

1:32 PM

World Yoga Day - New Aasan

International Yoga Day on 21st June 2015 was an eye catching event owing to its vastness and reach. The PM famous for his marketing and event management skills stood victorious again at this time in making it a world event without any flaws if we ignore some asanas (posture) he performed wrong. But I am not here to praise the achievements of this day since our PM expert in Swayam Prashansan (Self-Praise Posture) is enough for this, I am here to make you aware of the few New Aasanas (postures) trending in the country.

Ram Madhav with his latest tweet after World Yoga Day about Vice President Hamid Ansari joined the league of other BJP leaders like Sakshi Maharaj, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Yogi Adityanath and some others who are expert practitioner of Murkh Samvad Aasan (Foolish Talking Posture). In this aasan the practitioner speaks without knowing the facts and repercussions of his sayings as Ram Madhav did with his tweet without knowing that Vice President was not invited for the event due to protocol perhaps he was trying the age old favorite Sampradayik Aasan (communal posture) of RSS and BJP. 

Recently PM Narender Modi who has become a pro in Ulat Palat Asan (Shuffle Posture) by changing his views on various issues before and after the General elections has now learnt Maun Aasan (Silent Posture) by keeping silent on Lalit Modi, Vasundhara Raje and Sushma Swaraj's Bhrashtachaar Aasan (Corruption Posture) which sources close to him claims he has learnt from Manmohan Singh the former Prime Minister of India during their 45 minutes meeting recently at 7 Race Course Road. It is not difficult to understand that PM is a quick learner the use of Made In China yoga mats despite his urge for Make In India appears to be the practice of Jumla Aasan (Phrase Posture) taught by Amit Shah to him and used previously for Black Money issue.

Modi government in partnership with Arvind Kejriwal lead Delhi government is also doing Kathputli Aasan (Puppet posture) and Nautanki Aasan (Drama posture) with Delhi L.G Najeeb Jung leading the troops leaving Delhi citizens in Tang Aasan (Trouble posture) due to restrictions in developmental work. The already troubled public is fed up of all these aasanas of politicians and want something to uplift their spirit, though Rahul Gandhi's Sakriya Aasan ( Active Posture) brings some hope but they are not stopping doing  Shanka Asan (doubt posture) looking at his previous performances. 

Just keep practicing yoga taught by Yoga Gurus for healthy mind, body and soul because politically taught aasanas have bad effect not only on our health but the health of society and nation.

Sniffing to Ban Body Odour

Sniffing to Ban Body Odor

#SniffSniff activity at +BlogAdda stimulated both nose and mind to uncover the mystery behind the clues. The mention of the word sniff was enough to realize that it was something related to the nose and right from the first clue i.e a male image with cloth clip on its nose I was sure that the product is related to the removal of bad body odor , I guessed about a soap, a powder or a deodorant but I was not sure about this at that time. The first clue started this wonderful adventure of revealing the product an activity which was unique in itself.

I was always thinking about the product during the period of Sniff Sniff activity. The activity was designed in a way to keep us hooked to it. When the second clue i.e Coffee Bean Bag arrived I have made my mind that the product is a deodorant but this clue was a bit confusing. It changed my thought process and compelled me to think in the different direction but again the mention of the body odor in the card attached to it indicated towards a fragrance perhaps of Coffee flavor which in the end came out as a hint to a smell which over powers all other smells or I should say all body odor. 

The face mask which is the final clue in the series was an apt indicator to a product which allows to breath freely in body odor free environment. The thing written on card which assist the mask was also interesting and hinted towards the arrival of a fresh fragrance. With the face mask I was sure that it was a body hygiene product for men.

The final product i.e Nivea Men Body Deodorizer ended all my doubts and rightly pass the body odor test. I have received ICE COOL variant of this product which is also available in Energy variant. This product is specially designed for today's men who wants to be ever ready for any occasion in less time.
