The flag that was first hoisted on August 7, 1906,
at the Parsee Bagan Square in Calcutta .

Called the 'Saptarishi Flag', this was hoisted in Stuttgart
at the International Socialist Congress held on August 22, 1907.

Associated with the names of Dr. Annie Besant and
Lokmanya Tilak, this flag was hoisted at
the Congress session in Calcutta during the
'Home Rule Movement'.

In the year 1921, a young man from Andhra presented
this flag to Gandhiji for approval. It was only after
Gandhiji's suggestion that the white strip and
the charkha were added.

This flag was suggested during the All India Congress
Committee session in 1931. However, the Committee's
suggestion was not approved.

On August 6, 1931, the Indian National Congress
formally adopted this flag, which was first hoisted
on August 31.

Our National Flag, which was born on July 22, 1947,
with Nehruji's words, "Now I present to you not only the Resolution,
but the Flag itself". This flag was first hoisted at the Council House
on August 15, 1947.

India 's flag is a tricolor standard, with bands of saffron, white, and dark green. The saffron represents courage, sacrifice, patriotism, and renunciation. It is also the color of the Hindu people. The green stands for faith, fertility and the land; it is the color of the Islam religion. The white is in the center, symbolizing the hope for unity and peace. In the center of the white band is a blue wheel with 24 spokes. This is the Ashoka Chakra (or "Wheel of Law"). The Chakra represents the continuing progress of the nation and the importance of justice in life. It also appears on the Sarnath Lion Capital of Ashoka " .

Fw: [sanghshakha] Time to Claim back Mecca ?? Very Solid proofs

Carbon dating can easily prove the claim.

Haram Symbol

by Volker Doormann

"Allah - surely nothing is hidden from Him in the earth or in the heaven."

Hareem is Arabic for women — plural. Hormah is woman. Hareem is the women of the house. H


comes from Arabic haram, holy, sacrosanct, sanctuary. "Most surely the first house appointed

for men is

the one at Bekka (Mecca), blessed and a guidance for the nations. In it are clear signs, the

standing place of Ibrahim ..". The Kuran talks about Bekka (the older name of Mecca) being the first house of worship appointed for mankind. It also addresses this place as Umm ul-Qurรข i.e., Mother of the Settlements. The actual structure of the Kaaba has been demolished and rebuilt several times in the course of its history.

Edward Gibbon writes about the Kaaba and its existence before the Christian era in his book: "

The genuine antiquity of Caaba ascends beyond the Christian era: in describing the coast of the R

ed sea the Greek historian Diodorus has remarked, between the Thamudites and the Sabeans,

a famous temple, whose superior sanctity was revered by all the Arabians; the linen of silken veil,

which is annually renewed by the

Turkish emperor, was first offered by the Homerites, who reigned seven hundred years before

the time of Mohammad." Diodorus Siculus was a Greek historian of 1st century BC who

wrote Bibliotheca Historica, a book describing various parts of the discovered world. The

following lines are the English translation of Greek quoted by Gibbon from the book of

Diodorus Siculus (Diodorus of Sicily) describing the 'temple' considered to be the the holiest

in the whole of Arabia. 'And a temple has been set-up there, which is very holy and

exceedingly revered by all Arabians.'
G E von Grunebaum says: "
Mecca is mentioned by Ptolemy, and the name he gives

it allows us to identify it as a South Arabian foundation created around a sanctuary."

The Bible also mentions about the valley of Baca in connection with the

pilgrimage. Below is the quote from Psalms 84

"To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A melody for the sons of

Qorach ('Korah' => Koran):

How beloved are thy dwelling places, O LORD of hosts!
My soul belongs to end for the courts of the LORD: my heart and

my flesh sings out for the living 'El (God).
The bird hath found a home, and the swallow a nest to lay her young,

as altar, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
Blessed are they that dwell in a house: they will be still praising thee. celah (pause)

Blessed is the man whose strength is inside his heart; in whose heart are the path.
Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also cover the B@rakah.
They go from strength to strength, to Tsiyown ('parched place') see the gods (elohim).
LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. cehla (pause)

See, God our shielder, and look upon the face of the
mashiyach (messias).
The day in courts is better than a thousand. I choose a doorkeeper in the house

of my God, than to dwell in the home of wickedness.
The LORD God is sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good t

hing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee."

There can be recognized some similarities between the

Vedic symbol and the Haram symbol in Mecca.

Fwd: An Interesting Article

We Are All Hindus Now
Lisa Miller | NEWSWEEK
Published Aug 15, 2009
From the magazine issue dated Aug 31, 2009
America is not a Christian nation. We are, it is true, a nation founded by Christians, and according to a 2008 survey, 76 percent of us continue to identify as Christian (still, that's the lowest percentage in American history). Of course, we are not a Hindu—or Muslim, or Jewish, or Wiccan—nation, either. A million-plus Hindus live in the United States, a fraction of the billion who live on Earth. But recent poll data show that conceptually, at least, we are slowly becoming more like Hindus and less like traditional Christians in the ways we think about God, our selves, each other, and eternity.
The Rig Veda, the most ancient Hindu scripture, says this: "Truth is One, but the sages speak of it by many names." A Hindu believes there are many paths to God. Jesus is one way, the Qur'an is another, yoga practice is a third. None is better than any other; all are equal. The most traditional, conservative Christians have not been taught to think like this. They learn in Sunday school that their religion is true, and others are false. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father except through me."
Americans are no longer buying it. According to a 2008 Pew Forum survey, 65 percent of us believe that "many religions can lead to eternal life"—including 37 percent of white evangelicals, the group most likely to believe that salvation is theirs alone. Also, the number of people who seek spiritual truth outside church is growing. Thirty percent of Americans call themselves "spiritual, not religious," according to a 2009 NEWSWEEK Poll, up from 24 percent in 2005. Stephen Prothero, religion professor at Boston University, has long framed the American propensity for "the divine-deli-cafeteria religion" as "very much in the spirit of Hinduism. You're not picking and choosing from different religions, because they're all the same," he says. "It isn't about orthodoxy. It's about whatever works. If going to yoga works, great—and if going to Catholic mass works, great. And if going to Catholic mass plus the yoga plus the Buddhist retreat works, that's great, too."
Then there's the question of what happens when you die. Christians traditionally believe that bodies and souls are sacred, that together they comprise the "self," and that at the end of time they will be reunited in the Resurrection. You need both, in other words, and you need them forever. Hindus believe no such thing. At death, the body burns on a pyre, while the spirit—where identity resides—escapes. In reincarnation, central to Hinduism, selves come back to earth again and again in different bodies. So here is another way in which Americans are becoming more Hindu: 24 percent of Americans say they believe in reincarnation, according to a 2008 Harris poll. So agnostic are we about the ultimate fates of our bodies that we're burning them—like Hindus—after death. More than a third of Americans now choose cremation, according to the Cremation Association of North America, up from 6 percent in 1975. "I do think the more spiritual role of religion tends to deemphasize some of the more starkly literal interpretations of the Resurrection," agrees Diana Eck, professor of comparative religion at Harvard. So let us all say "om."

2. BHARAT'S FIRST NUCLEAR SUBMARINE LAUNCHED: Bharat on June 26 joined a select group of five nations, the other countries being US, Russia, China, France and Britain, with the launching of country's first indigenously designed and built nuclear-powered attack submarine, INS Arihant. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh described it as a 'historic milestone' in the country's defence preparedness.
He congratulated the Advanced Technology Vehicle (ATV) Programme and the people associated with it for designing and building the nuclear submarine, which he said was a reflection of the 'immense technical expertise' and the strength of the research and development organizations in the country.
The submarine will be commissioned in the Bharatiya Navy after extensive outfitting and sea trials. It is the first of three such vessels to be built in the country and marks a quantum leap in Bharat's shipbuilding capabilities. Bharatiya Navy will also get a Russian-built Akula class nuclear submarine INS Chakra, expected to be commissioned by this year-end.

3. 'TURMERIC IS RECEIVING ATTENTION FOR MEDICAL APPLICATIONS': Modern science has substantiated what grandma always knew: the extraordinary healing power of turmeric. A team of scientists led by Ayyalusamy
Ramamoorthy , an IIT Kanpur alumnus and a Professor of Chemistry and Biophysics at the University of Michigan, has deciphered the exact functioning of curcumin, a major ingredient of turmeric powder, in curing wounds, infections and other health problems. "Curcumin could be used as a supplement to boost health. However, more studies are essential to completely understand how it can be used to treat ageing-related diseases like type-2 diabetes and Alzheimer's disease, cancer and bacterial and viral infections. Some research along these lines is already in progress in our laboratory." He said.

4. BRITISH COUNCIL TO OUTSOURCE JOBS TO BHARAT: As the Gordon Brown government mulls outsourcing over 100 jobs at the British Council to Bharat as part of its cost-cutting drive, government employees' unions have denounced the move as an "absolute disgrace" and feared that it could be a blueprint for shifting more such services abroad.
The Council, which promotes British culture and language abroad, said that 500 of its 1,300 British workers would have to go in the next 18 months to save 45 million pounds.
More than a fifth of these posts are to be filled in Bharat and the body plans to bring some of the Bharatiya recruits over to "shadow" finance staff in Manchester .
The Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS), which represents civil servants, opposed the Council's decision saying it was against Brown's stated principle of "British jobs for British people" and could not be justified during a recession.

5. EMOTIONS RULE AS KARGIL BRAVES ARE REMEMBERED: Tears rolled down the faces of family members of the fallen soldiers of Kargil war at the sight of memorials for their loved ones who helped trounce the Pakistani Army 10 years ago while colleagues and superiors paid emotional tributes to the heroes.
"Looking at the faces of the brave soldiers, kin of martyrs and awardees, I wonder what these heroes are made of? "Former Army chief VP Malik, who commanded the force during the Kargil conflict, said while dedicating a war memorial gallery in Drass named after Paramvir Chakra awardee Capt Manoj Panday on July 25.
"After the demise of my son it is the only happy day of my life. I am thankful that my son is finally recognised and remembered," said S P Kalia, father of Lt Saurabh Kalia who was among the first casualties of the Kargil conflict and was captured and brutally tortured by the Pakistani forces

6. IVHP ADOPTS STREET CHILDREN: Indraprastha Vishwa Hindu Parishad (IVHP) adopted 25 street children from various slums of Delhi for providing free education, health and for all-round development. Most of the children belong to the families where parents are suffering from leprosy for a long time. About half a dozen children are from the families of Dadiya Luhar who are said to be the ancestors of the great emperor Maharana Pratap.
Blessing the children at Saraswati Bal Mandir, Nehru Nagar, social worker and director of an orphanage home Sadhvi Samta Shri said we feel proud when a child picked up from streets performs with flying colours. I am confident that the children would become educationally, culturally and physically sound, she added.

7. BHARAT CAN MAKE N-POWERED AIRCRAFT CARRIER: Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) chairman Anil Kakodkar has said that Bharat is capable of designing and developing nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. He was speaking to reporters after delivering the 15th Lalit Doshi Memorial Lecture on 'Nuclear Energy in Bharat: Way Ahead' in Mumbai on August 3. Asked whether Bharat has such capability, he said, ''Yes.''
A legislation is being planned on nuclear liabilities keeping in mind the growth of N-commerce, the AEC chief said. During the lecture, Kakodkar said AEC was ''close to the launch of the construction of the 300-MW advanced heavy water reactor. The reactor with a design life of 100 years will receive 65% of its power from thorium.'' Highlighting the importance of Indo-US nuclear deal and stating that the availability of uranium is limited, he said, ''the situation is getting precarious. Thorium will be available for two centuries.''
''We're planning power parks consisting of six to eight units of light water reactors. Bharat has set an ambitious target of generating 40,000 mw of nuclear power by 2020,'' he said.

8. IIIrd BASE AT ANTARCTICA: BHARAT TO JOIN ELITE CLUB: Twenty-five years after it established Dakshin Gangotri, the first permanent research station in the South Polar region, Bharat is all set to build the third such centre in Antarctica to take up cutting-edge research in various fields.
The new station, tentatively named Bharti, is scheduled to be operational by 2012, making Bharat a member of an elite group of nine nations that have multiple stations in the region.
Dakshin Gangotri, set up in 1984, was buried in ice and had to be abandoned in 1990, a year after Bharat set up Maitri, the second station. The National Centre for Antarctic & Ocean Research (NCAOR), Goa , will set up the new station on Larsmann Hill, 3,000 km from Schirmacher Oasis, where Maitri stands. While Maitri was more than 100 km from the Antarctic Sea , Bharti will be on a promontory by the sea. Bharat was admitted to the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), an international body that coordinates scientific activities in the region, on Oct 1, 1984. Bharat holds the vice-chairman's post in the panel. Argentina , Australia , Chile , China , France , Russia , the UK and US have multiple stations in Antarctica .

9. RENEWABLE ENERGY PUSH: SOLAR PANELS TO LINE BORDER IN KUTCH: Until now, the only thing shining in the Rann of Kutch was a mirage. Now, the scorching sun could light up another sparkling ring along the inhospitable border with Pakistan , if a Rs 61,019 crore dream comes true. And, it won't be an illusion, but real mirrors..
With about 45 investment promises lined up in solar energy sector, Gujarat plans to promote the desert as a hub for renewable energy.
Gujarat has decided to allocate 1,500 hectares of land in the desert and a small stretch in Santalpur in Bankaskantha district. The Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation will create infrastructure for the ambitious ` Solar Park '.
Projects with 716MW of solar power capacity have been allotted to 34 national and international project developers, including PLG Power, Lanco Solar, Moser Baer, Solar Semi Conductor, AES Solar, Astonfield, Torrent Power, Adani Power, Abengoa, Electrotherm, Welspun, and NTPC. Put together, these projects will see investment worth Rs 12,000 crore over the next few years. US-based AES Corporation is mulling to set up the world's largest solar project in the state by 2010.

10. INDUS SCRIPT MAY SOON GIVE UP ITS SECRETS: Bharatiya and American researchers are close to breaking the code behind the script of the Indus Valley civilization, which flourished on the Bharat-Pakistan border 4,000 years ago.
The script, found as inscriptions on numerous objects dating from that period, has puzzled archaeologists ever since Harappa was discovered in 1842.
A study, a joint effort of Mumbai's Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Chennai's Institute of Mathematical Sciences and the University of Washington , was published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
It says there are distinct patterns in the hieroglyphics used by the script, and creates a statistical model for the unknown language..
"The model provides insights into the underlying grammatical structure of the script," said lead author Rajesh Rao, associate professor of computer science, University of Washington .

11. TEACHING BHARATANATYAM IN PAKISTAN : For the last five decades, 80-year-old Indu Mitha has been teaching the beautiful and deeply religious Bharatanatyam dance to Pakistanis. Dance, it seems, can cross cultural and religious boundaries.
Teaching traditional Bharatiya dance in Pakistan required a delicate balancing act, which she successfully performed along her dance steps. Dance was considered "haraam" - or un Islamic - during the tenure of President Zia ul Haq, when a "no objection certificate" was needed for every performance. (Courtesy: Hindu Press International)

12. DURGA VAHINI ACTIVISTS TIE RAKHI TO SOLDIERS AT WAGAH AND POONCH BORDERS: Durga Vahini activists tied rakhi to the soldiers at Wagha border in Punjab and Poonch border in Jammu & Kashmir which boosted the morale of the soldiers. When some of the soldiers tried to give some money to the activists they said, "We want united Bharat, not this money. Only you soldiers can do it." The 30 member-delegation of Durga Vahini visited Wagah border on July 31 and Poonch border on August 3. After tying rakhi to the soldiers they also visited Budha Amarnath and prayed Lord Shiva to protect the Bharatiya borders. This delegation returned to Delhi on August 6 and tied rakhi to the Delhi police constables and officials in some Police Stations.

SLICE a carrot and it looks just like an eye, right down to the pattern of the iris. It's a clear clue to the importance this everyday veg has for vision. Carrots get their orange colour from a plant chemical called betacarotene, which reduces the risk of developing cataracts. The chemical also protects against macular degeneration an age-related sight problem that affects one in four over-65s. It is the most common cause of blindness in Britain. But popping a betacarotene pill doesn't have the same effect, say scientists at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore

THE gnarled folds of a walnut mimic the appearance of a human brain - and provide a clue to the benefits. Walnuts are the only nuts which contain significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. They may also help head off dementia. An American study found that walnut extract broke down the protein-based plaques associated with Alzheimer's disease. Researchers at Tufts University in Boston found walnuts reversed some signs of brain ageing in rats. Dr James Joseph, who headed the study, said walnuts also appear to enhance signalling within the brain and encourage new messaging links between brain cells.

A TOMATO is red and usually has four chambers, just like our heart. Tomatoes are also a great source of lycopene, a plant chemical that reduces the risk of heart disease and several cancers. The Women's Health Study — an American research programme which tracks the health of 40,000 women — found women with the highest blood levels of lycopene had 30 per cent less heart disease than women who had very little lycopene. Lab experiments have also shown that lycopene helps counter the effect of unhealthy LDL cholesterol. One Canadian study, published in the journal Experimental Biology and Medicine, said there was "convincing vidence' that lycopene prevented coronary heart disease.

OUR lungs are made up of branches of ever-smaller airways that finish up with tiny bunches of tissue called alveoli. These structures, which resemble bunches of grapes, allow oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream. One reason that very premature babies struggle to survive is that these alveoli do not begin to form until week 23 or 24 of pregnancy. A diet high in fresh fruit, such as grapes, has been shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer and emphysema. Grape seeds also contain a chemical called proanthocyanidin, which appears to reduce the severity of asthma triggered by allergy.

A nice 'holey' cheese, like Emmenthal, is not just good for your bones, it even resembles their internal structure. And like most cheeses, it is a rich source of calcium, a vital ingredient for strong bones and reducing the risk of osteoporosis later in life. Together with another mineral called phosphate, it provides the main strength in bones but also helps to 'power' muscles. Getting enough calcium in the diet during childhood is crucial for strong bones. A study at Columbia University in New York showed teens who increased calcium intake from 800mg a day to 1200mg – equal to an extra two slices of cheddar - boosted their bone density by six per cent.

Root ginger, commonly sold in supermarkets, often looks just like the stomach. So it's interesting that one of its biggest benefits is aiding digestion. The Chinese have been using it for over 2,000 years to calm the stomach and cure nausea, while it is also a popular remedy for motion sickness. But the benefits could go much further.
Tests on mice at the University of Minnesota found injecting the chemical that gives ginger its flavour slowed down the growth rate of bowel tumours

Cheer yourself up and put a smile on your face by eating a banana. The popular fruit contains a protein called tryptophan. Once it has been digested, tryptophan then gets converted in a chemical neurotransmitter called serotonin. This is one of the most important mood-regulating chemicals in the brain and most anti-depressant drugs work by adjusting levels of serotonin production. Higher levels are associated with better moods.

Slice a mushroom in half and it resembles the shape of the human ear. And guess what? Adding it to your cooking could actually improve your hearing. That's because mushrooms are one of the few foods in our diet that contain vitamin D.

Close-up, the tiny green tips on a broccoli head look like hundreds of cancer cells. Now scientists know this disease-busting veg can play a crucial role in preventing the disease. Last year, a team of researchers at the US National Cancer Institute found just a weekly serving of broccoli was enough to reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 45 per cent. In Britain, prostate cancer kills one man every hour.

For performing Pooja, Hindus needs license in New Delhi

August 27, 2009

Bhadrapad Shuddha Ashtami, Kaliyug Varsha 5111

Shame on New Delhi Govt. who has to issue such directive to make mandatory to get license from Competent Authority for performing 'Pooja'. It is duty of Govt. to take care of Law & order in festival season. O Hindus, now time has come to boycott such anti-Hindu Govt. and elect only pro-Hindu candidates in forthcoming elections!

Press Release by VHP Delhi

Hindus in Delhi needs to get license from Delhi Police to perform Pooja or Ram Leela. According to the latest directive issued by the licensing department of Delhi police "The season of festivals is coming soon. It is mandatory to get licence for Pooja from a competent authority". Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) described this directive as Tughlaqui Farman which is not acceptable in our independent country.

The General Secretary of VHP Delhi Shri Satyendra Mohan said that such directives are to hamper hindu festivals in the days to come. These were never even issued by Tughlaque or Aurangjeb. Then, how we could be stopped to perform pooja in independent Bharat which is our fundamental right.

 A large number of Durga Pooja committees & Ram Leela Committees are forced to take back their decision to perform Pooja /Ram Leela this year due a very complicated & expensive procedure to get license. The directive says that those who want to perform Pooja have to apply for a license from the city Police. The directive published in many national dailies on Wednesday says that one has to make an affidavit and submit NO OBJECTION Certificate from Local Police, DDA, Traffic Police, Chief Fire Officer, Electricity Inspector, Entertainment Tax Officer etc. Security to be arranged by pooja committees from their own sources should not be less then the airport security in any manner. They have to install CCTV cameras with a 24 hr watching security personnel, DFMDs (security frames), trained male as well as female security guards with metal detectors, fire tender & ambulance should be kept ready for 24 hrs. DDA have also made a lengthy & complicated procedure to get Parks on lease to perform pooja.

Many Ramleela committees show only RAMAYAN TV serial made by Ramanand Sagar on a big frames in the days of Ramleelas. Such committees also needs to get certificate from the film censer board & deposit Rs. 500/- per day  in addition to many more formalilies. It is surprising to note that the directive came after the assurance by the Lt. Governor of Delhi to the meeting delegates of Ramleela / Durga Pooja Committes last Monday to withdraw all complications in this regard.

VHP demanded that govt should take all necessary steps to stop such directives immediately and ensure safe, secure &  peaceful celebrations in the day of festival to come.

TogadiaSpeak: No human rights for Hindus even in Hindustan!


TogadiaSpeak: No human rights for Hindus even in Hindustan!
By Dr Pravin Togadia
A bizarre visual made waves on most TV channels 2-3 years back. It was shown for some time and then suddenly it was taken off from almost all TV channels as if was managed to be taken off. That was a visual of a robe clad tall hefty man wielding guns in both hands and with knives arranged in the calf length stockings. He was sloganeering and cheering the mobs that were burning Hindu houses / shops and directing few mobs to go to particular lanes. That man was a minority MLA from Mau, U.P. What transpired there was a broad daylight genocide and many Hindus were killed, burnt alive and their lady family members were raped. India watched it on TV with a shock. But no human rights activist or not even national human rights commission ever visited there. No government took note of Hindu plight there. No political party bothered to care for Hindus there. Just because any community is a majority in a particular country, do social raggers and bullies from minority get a right to hurt it? Aren't there any human rights for Hindus even in Hindustan?

When I wrote in my last column about the appalling Human Rights situations of Hindus living abroad, many asked me if I had forgotten of the more tragic Human Rights situation of Hindus in India. No. Nobody can ever forget it. Not one, not two, but umpteen number of incidents show and prove that the tragic Human Rights situation of Hindus is not indifference and ignorance of the authorities but it is a well-planned conspiracy against Hindus for the dirty vote bank politics.

When any of us speaks of how the Kashmiri Pundits were hoarded out of their houses, farms, lands and businesses by jehadis and how it was written on their ladies' breasts to leave Hindu and Sikh women back for the jehadis, some show-case pseudo secularists tell us to stop speaking of history. Kashmiri Pundits' plight is as recent as in 1990 and it is not history. Jammu Kashmir border Hindus, Hindu labourers from U.P., Bihar, Rajasthan working there are still facing the same jehadi religious cleansing there, everyday our army/policemen die there.

Same fate is being faced by over 100,000 Assamese Hindus. They have been forced to live in the rehabilitation centers after losing their loved ones, losing their land and businesses to the invader Muslims from Bangladesh. These Bangladeshi Muslims have captured India's vast lands chasing out native Hindus and tribals there like Karbi Anglong and others. But vote bank greedy political parties are wooing those same invading Muslims for bunch of votes and almost all parties are trying to give them even citizen's rights!

This is a gross violation of not just Human Rights of Hindus in Assam but also a breach of their fundamental constitutional rights to live in their homes, work / do business at their places and grow their crops in their own farms. Every family has lost at least one person to the jehadi attack there and for so many years they are staying in rehabilitation camps with no facilities / no education for children just like in Kashmir. They don't even get voting rights in spite of being Indian citizens as their belongings including their documents are lost in the mayhem of the attacks; but invading jehadis are not only given Indian ration cards but also voting cards. No Human Rights of these displaced Hindus of Assam?

Recently, there were cases of Sodomy by Church Fathers and almost all victims - little boys - were Hindus and Tribals. Only few of such cases are ever reported and go to court. But most of them go unnoticed and unreported. On the other hand, with not even an iota of truth big noise was made about the so-called rape on the nun in Kandhamal (who later did not even come for identification of the so-called accused!). From Pope to media and from human rights activists to churches in India and the world shouted about it.

Whenever a police officer or Army officer, doing his utmost duty, kills a jehadi, there is always a big ho-hoopla by those so-called human rights people. But the same people suddenly vanish when any Hindu or Jain or Sikh or Bouddha is injusticed or attacked by jehadis or Church people. Even the governments and political parties turn purposeful blind eye to injustice to Hindus - be it rapes, riot attacks, juvenile crimes, loss of property / home / business / land.

So much so, recently when 6000 pilgrims were stuck in Mansarowar, even after media noise, government slept on it for days together. After many Hindus died and fell ill, 2 helicopters were sent which were obviously insufficient. For Haj, entire government machinery works overnight! Over 10,000 farmers died committing suicide in the past four years in various states. All of them are Hindus.

Over 75,000 Army, police and Para military men died in the attacks by jehadis in Kashmir, Assam, Tripura and by Naxals in many states. No human rights for them? Lakhs of temples, homes, farms yet occupied by jehadis, invaders and churches all over India. If any Hindu goes to pray there or claims his own home / land, he is either immediately attacked by those illegal occupiers or threatened by police with false cases - be it Kruttivaseshwar, Kashi Vishwanath in Kashi or be it Amarnath or be it Karbi Anglong land in Assam jungles or Hindus' homes in Karimganj (Assam), Mysore temples broken by Muslims or be it sea fishing areas across the coastal India from Kerala to Rameshwar and from Konkan in Maharashtra to Tamil Nadu and from Gujarat to Bengal... But No Human rights of these Hindus are ever thought off.

Not one, not two; if we sit to list such incidents, the list will be unending and is the plight of Hindus in India. There is no point in expecting that such so-called human rights groups, international web-site mongers and human rights commissions, any government or any political party would ever do anything for protecting Hindu's human rights. Hindus themselves have to democratically stand up to protect their own human rights. In many places from Hyderabad to Meerut and from Mumbai to Ahmedabad, Hindus are being persecuted by Muslims, are threatened and made to abandon their property. Some rich Muslims are forcibly taking signatures of Hindus on the transfer papers. Over 50,000 Hindu girls have been abducted by Muslims in the past three years. No Human Rights protection against this larger conspiracy. It has become a fashion to abuse Hindus, laugh at Hindus after hurting their sentiments and after even killing them. It has become a planned conspiracy of jehadi groups and supporting political parties to first attack 3-4 Hindus or rape a Hindu girl or break a Hindu religious structure. When Hindus go to the police / government to complain, they are threatened. After tolerating too much when Hindus react, then suddenly these show-case pseudo-secularists and Human Rights people jump and first shout in media (who also is very fond of same faces from this group) and then after doing media trial, governments lovingly act against Hindus and getting influenced by all this melo-dramatic ho-hoopla, sometimes even judiciary acts in a haste.

Hindus may be silent. Hindus may not look one. Governments, political parties, so-called human rights mongers and international / national pseudo-secularists think that because Hindu is divided in castes and other systems, Hindu would never come together as a formidable majority group to democratically fight this severe purposeful long continuing injustice, then they are in a dream world. Hindu may be silent. Hindu may not look one, but at core in the heart Hindu is one. And Hindu knows now is the time to democratically stand up against all such injustice he has been facing over generations. Irrespective of any political party affiliation, irrespective of any caste and community, Hindu can stand up democratically and Hindu would. It would not take much time for Hindus to democratically form their own national and international Hindu Rights Commission and other such systems. If the Caste Panchayats and Sharia are accepted in judiciary then the Hindus Human Rights Commission also must be accepted.

Herbal route to swine flu safety

Durgesh Nandan Jha | New Delhi

Just two drops of these common oils and natural substances can save you from the wave of deadly influenza sweeping the Capital. No, the vaccine has not arrived but the prevention of the illness is prescribed in Ayurveda.

A team of doctors from the Central Institute of Research for Ayurveda and Hospital, Government of India, have come out with simple, people-friendly prophylactic measures like putting two drops of mustard oil in the nostril or wearing a handkerchief on the face with some eucalyptus oil drops put in it.

While the mustard oil applied on the mucous membrane of the nasal passage acts as a barrier for active air pathogens, the eucalyptus oil, popularly known as Nilgiri oil, has a fragrance which is against the very nature of virus.

"N95 masks are for the use of health workers and those already infected by the H1N1 virus. A common man can prevent the infection by applying two drops of mustard oil in his nostrils. The oil will form a layer around the mucosa of the nasal passage. Infectious viral elements cannot penetrate it," said Raakhee Mehra, Assistant Director, Central Institute of Research for Ayurveda and Hospital located in Punjabi Bagh in New Delhi, which comes under the Department of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy (AYUSH), Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

Mehra said epidemics or Janpadoshwansh (in Sanskrit) have been identified by our ancient medical science - Ayurveda - more than 500 years ago. "It spreads through air, water and food. But application of natural medicines like neem water, turmeric, sandal, giloy, tulsi and honey among others can prevent this by checking the passage of infectious virus and increasing the immunity of the body," she said.

Tamiflu, she said, causes several side effects on children and cannot kill the swine flu virus completely (This has been highlighted by a research conducted by Oxford University researchers). "Tamilflu just suppresses the effects. Ayurvedic medicines have both preventive and curative effects. Using a mixture of honey, tulsi and diloy in the morning prevents from any strain of virus. Materials used in havan like guggul (Commifora mukul), sandle, vach (Acorous calimus) and Jatavansh (Nardicus jatamansi) destroy free radicals moving in the air. Brushing the teeth with a mixture of mustard oil, turmeric and salt increases salivation leading to prevention and ejection of pathogens assimilated during the night," added Mehra.

Principal of Ayurvedic and Unani Tibbia College Dr Yashin Ahmed said that use of Ayurvedic medicines like giloy have given favourable results in tackling diseases like Chikungunya and dengue fever and will certainly held fight the swine flu. Senior officials associated with AYUSH and research centers said that it was unfortunate that despite the unavailability of vaccine for swine flu and the scarcity of preventive drugs, the central Government was not keen on promoting use of ayurvedic medicines.

"The Government is spending crores of amounts on sample testing kits, procurement of Tamiflu and production of vaccine. But till date, there has been no advisory or efforts asking people to use Ayurveda. The ancient medical science is on the verge of extinction," said an official on condition of anonymity.

It can be noted that most of the Ayurvedic medicines include herbs and other natural products that are cheaper. At some medicine stores selling the medicines, one can even get as many as 60 Tulsi tablets for as little as Rs 60.


New Delhi: On Thursday, Delhi reported 16 cases of swine flu, of which 13 are indigenous cases.

Three others have history of foreign travel. These include a 14-year old male who arrived from the U.K. a 19-year old male who came here from China and a 17 year old male who arrived from the US. Gurgaon also reported one indigenous case. According to RP Vashishtha, nodal officer for the disease in Delhi, out of 16 cases reported 11 are children. Meanwhile, reacting to the diffident attitude of several private hospitals over starting treatment for the viral infection, Delhi Health Minister Kiran Walia has said that the hospitals have been guveb 15 days' time to set up specilised wards for the purpose.

"We have given them 15 days to put their system in place and if they do not have it, they will definitely be coming back to us," said Walia. She claimed that the Government has not got any negative reaction from anybody. In a statement, Apollo Hospital had said it cannot put its patients at risk, many of whom are immuno-compromised, by exposing them to the infection. The mortality rate of H1N1 is one per cent in normal population but significantly higher in people who are immuno-compromised. "We are therefore not in a position to provide facilities for H1N1 screening, sample collection and in-patient treatment in our campus for fear of cross infection," it said. SR

Ayurveda can effectively counter Swine Flu: Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Bangalore, Aug 12: Calling upon the people not to panic over H1N1, founder of the Art of Living Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said said 'India has a wealth of knowledge from Ayurveda to counter swine flu.' Sri Sri Ravishankar said 'in addition, our mind also plays an important role in our immunity. Whenever we panic and have fear, our immunity level goes down. Practices like pranayama and meditation play a vital role in reducing panic, fear and keeping ourselves calm. He said independent studies conducted at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences

, New Delhi (AIIMS) and National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences, Bangalore (NIMHANS) have empirically proved that practices such as pranayama and meditation boosts immunity at least three-fold.

''If we can integrate these practices in our daily lives along with the simple Ayurvedic remedies

, we can effectively counter swine flu'' Sri Sri Ravishankar said.

Elaborating on this, Dr Manikantan and Dr Nisha Manikantan, senior ayurvedic doctors at Sri Sri Ayurveda centre in the outskirts of the city said in a release here that ''Swine flu invades the body because of a breakdown in immunity and Ayurveda offers simple and effective remedies to boost immunity and build resistance.

Tea made from Laxmi Taru (botanical name Simarouba) leaves, Tulsi, Amla and Amrut (Giloy) acts as an immunity enhancer.

Alternatively and additionally, Ginger and Turmeric powder mixed with either lime juice or honey can also be taken twice a day.

''To counter air-borne swine flu viruses, Sambarani dhoop (loban stems) should be burnt in the house twice a day. Sambarani is a very potent atmospheric sterilser,'' the doctors said.
