    India – Marching fast towards technological self-reliance, resilience!

    India is marching fast towards technological self-reliance and resilience. The National Technology Day, which we celebrate every year on May 11, reminds us of our collective resolve and aspirations to be technologically empowered to meet domestic and global challenges. The day saw India joining the elite group of countries with nuclear weapons by successfully conducting three nuclear tests under ‘Operation Shakti’ at Pokhran, Rajasthan. It proved a watershed moment in our pursuits to achieve ‘Aatmanirbharta’ in the field of science and technology. Today India is leaving nothing unturned to make the most of technological advancement and upgradation in every critical field. From health to education, defence to agriculture, concerted efforts are on for technological interventions. These are not only creating more jobs, enhancing exports but are also helping people improve their ease of life. Technological evolution must be in sync with human needs, which is precisely happening in our country today. Our Information Technology (IT) roadmap for the defence is not only in consonance with contemporary technologies being used by…

    Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur: A true saviour of mankind

    Humanity will ever be indebted to the supreme sacrifice made by the 9th Sikh Guru Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur ji, a great warrior, spiritual personality and lover of the motherland. He propagated the message of universal brotherhood and religious freedom. He sacrificed everything for the sake of righteousness, mother land and the rights of people irrespective of their castes and faiths. That is why he was crowned with the rare honour of ‘Hind Di Chadar.’ As we celebrate the 400th Parkash Purab of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur ji, we need to recommit ourselves to his great ideals which teach us about the importance of religious freedom and welfare of mankind and the motherland. In an unparalleled manner Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur ji taught us to fearlessly lead a free life. He did not surrender to extreme tortures heaped upon him and his family by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb but endured them with a divine calmness. His transformation from Tyaga Mal to Tegh Bahadur is a story of ultimate religious firmness,…

    Let women play a greater role in building New India!

    India is an ancient nation, rich in great tradition and cultural values where women have always occupied the place of prominence. It has a vast women population. Since ours is a village dominated nation, the rural landscape is quite high. Unfortunately, due to oppression, tyrannies during the foreign rule and lack of facilities, women could not progress well. Though post Independence things improved for them, the pace of their holistic empowerment remained slow for decades. Poverty is a serious bottleneck in women’s progress. Through quality education and skills, fast-paced development of women in general can be ensured. With the help of technologies, market facilities, banking linkages and expansion of agro processing industries in every nook and corner of the country will set the ball rolling for their sustainable social and financial empowerment. Indian women are energetic, visionary and ever bubbling with zeal and commitment to scale greater heights of success in their lives against all odds and challenges! In the words of India’s first Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, “for we,…

    Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay – A man of simple living, high...

    Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay was a man of simple living, high thinking and strong determination. He was a brilliant student, ace organizer, writer, journalist, thinker, philosopher, true nationalist and a humanist par excellence. He joined the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in 1937 and went on to become a Pracharak. He was given the responsibility of the General Secretary of Bharatiya Jan Sangh, a post which he held from its inception 1951 till 1967. He became the president of the Jan Sangh on December 29, 1967. A political alternative to the ruling party was created. The Jan Sangh even joined the Samyukta Vidhayak Dal (SVD) government. His vision of life was aligned to that of Swami Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi. Instead of capitalism or socialism – which has its own inherent shortcomings – Deen Dayal Upadhyay Ji stressed the need for adopting Swadeshi economic policies based on our cultural, civilizational, nationalist values and ethos to make India strong, vibrant and self-reliant. That is called Ekatma Manavavad. It is neither capitalism nor socialism….

    Digitization is set to become a norm in the new...

    In the age of new normal caused by Covid-19, digitization is all set to become a new norm, indispensable to every act of planning and pursuits for sustainable progress. Being digitally multifaceted will be the need of the hour for years to come now. From education to the health system, every developmental planning has to be digitally fine-tuned and perfect. It is so assuring to say that today India as a nation is adopting technologies very fast, which will accelerate the pace of growth marked by transparency. The Union Budget 2022 has rightly laid a significant amount of emphasis on the enhanced use of technologies. Digital Ecosystem for Skilling and Livelihood (DESH-Stack e-portal) is going to be launched aimed at empowering citizens with skill, reskill or upskill through on-line training. Startups will be promoted to facilitate ‘Drone Shakti’ and Drone-As-A-Service (DrAAS). The use of drones in agriculture will open up new vistas of opportunities for tech startups. Taking the use of technology in the financial sector a step further, the…

    Guru Gobind Singh: An Upholder of Justice and Human Values!

    Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the tenth and last Sikh Guru, was the most fascinating and remarkably dazzling personality ever known in our history. A rare combination of character, compassion, determination, self-discipline, equality and heroism, his sense of commitment to human rights and justice was quite strong from his early days. When he was a child, he stood up by the Kashmiri Pandits, who were living in constant fear as Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb wanted them to convert to Islam. An ace strategist, visionary and excellent administrator, Guru Gobind Singh was a true leader of masses. As a versatile warrior, he had ultimate mastery in handling various kinds of weapons and had tremendous abilities to move the people for the cause of righteousness. If Guru Nanak Dev ji was almost Gandhian in his approach to human life, Guru Gobind Singh Ji was of the view that human rights must be protected from oppressors even if one has to take up arms — “When all peaceful means have been tried and failed, it…

    Savitribai Phule: An iconic reformer, educationist

    There are souls for whom we have fewer apt words to describe their contributions in laying the foundation of a strong society and the nation. Savitribai Phule is one of them. Along with her husband, Mahatma Jyotiba Phule, she fought bravely against untouchability, hegemonic, castetist, status quoist forces to ensure that girls from weaker sections of society, in particular those from backward, scheduled castes and tribes, have access to education. She opened schools for them and lit the light of hope in millions of lives at a time when they did not think of getting into schools for education. It was truly a watershed moment towards the holistic empowerment of women in our society, and Savitribai Phule, who epitomized ‘Naari Shakti,’ was the harbinger of this great revolution, which has now become a principal focus of the Central and state governments. Women’s empowerment has now become a buzzword. I join the nation in paying my humble tributes to Savitribai Phule, India’s first woman teacher, on her birth anniversary (January 3)….

    Subhash Chandra Bose, a great patriot, revolutionary and freedom fighter

    The entire nation is commemorating 125th birth anniversary of iconic freedom fighter, prominent revolutionary leader, patriot and a nationalist par excellence Subhash Chandra Bose. His participation in the freedom movement was remarkable. He was a brave and courageous leader. The sacrifice and struggle of Subhash Chandra Bose, who was deeply inspired by the Bhagavad Gita in his fight against the British, cannot be forgotten. For him, the nation was of paramount importance. He was jailed many times. He chose the path of creating his own army – Azad Hind Fauz – to liberate the mother land from the clutches of Britishers. He also set up the Free India Centre in Berlin and started Azad Hind Radio. It had news bulletins transmitted in English, Gujarati, Marathi, Bengali, Pashto, Tamil, Persian and Telugu. Similarly, the Indian Legion was formed in Europe to accelerate India’s pace of liberation. All India Forward Bloc was the political entity he had created. Subhash Chandra Bose, who is popularly known as Netaji, gave the clarion call of…

    Colossal resilience, perseverance shown in combating Covid-19

    Experts predicted that the peak of the third wave of Covid-19 would witness four lakh daily cases. They set January 23 as the time when Covid-19 cases would swell to the maximum but the number didn’t cross the mark of four lakh. Since then the number of Covid-19 cases has been coming down. A little over 2.34 lakh cases were reported in the last 24 hours, informed the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on January 30. The World Health Organization (WHO) has not kept India in a danger zone. When the second wave of Covid-19 – April 30, 2021 – was at its peak, there were 3.86 lakh new cases. Then the proportion of fully vaccinated people was just two percent. Now, 75 percent of all adults are fully vaccinated. So far over 165.70 crore vaccine doses have been administered under the Nationwide Vaccination Drive. Over four crore youngsters in the age group of 15-18 have been administered with the first dose of the vaccine. On an average,…

    Suicide Prevention and Awareness Program (Webinar)

    At the very outset, I would like to thank Spandana Eda International Foundation, Dr. EDA Samuel Reddy the organizer of the webinar on a very important topic – ‘Suicide Prevention and Awareness.’ I would also like to express my gratitude to the guests who are attending this important online seminar. I believe the inferences coming from various thought leaders and intellectuals taking part in the webinar will be of immense use in the prevention of suicidal tendencies in our society. It will also give a boost to the ‘Fit India’ initiative, which strives to create a healthy populace in the country. We all would like to admit that growing materialism, diminishing social values, weakening of joint family culture, inadequate family and social communication, missing bonhomie, marital discords, dowry issues, financial distress and health issues are acting as catalysts to trigger suicidal tendencies among our people. It is time to move forward with patience and positivity. There is definitely a solution to every problem in life. We need to understand that…
