'Together we can rule the galaxy.' Egypt's then President Mohamed Morsi (left) poses with Turkey's
then Prime Minister (now President) Recep Tayyip Erdogan, before Morsi was overthrown and jailed.
Shortly after the Arab Spring rocked several capitals in the Middle East, the Turks devised a plan that would enable their country to emerge as the new Ottoman Empire. While deliberately and systematically antagonizing Israel, Ankara would: replace the Shia-controlled Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad with a Turkey-friendly Sunni ruler; support the Sunni in Iraq and Lebanon and boost their political influence; support Hamas in the Palestinian territories and provoke it to violence against Israel; and make sure that the Muslim Brotherhood or their various brethren rule Egypt, Tunisia and Libya. Saudis were already "our Muslim brothers." Eventually, all former Ottoman lands would produce governments subservient to the emerging Turkish Empire.
Nearly four years later, Syria's Assad is comfortably sitting in his presidential palace in Damascus and possibly laughing at the mess the Turks created by supporting Syria's jihadists. These jihadists have only wreaked havoc along Turkey's nearly 900-mile-long borders with both Syria and Iraq.
The Shia in Iraq are as powerful as before, and remain obedient to Turkey's regional sectarian rival, Iran.
The Shia in Lebanon -- where Turks are a high-value currency on the hostage market -- are increasingly hostile to Turkey.
No one knows who rules Libya after the downfall of Colonel Qaddafi, but none of the warring factions want any Turks meddling in the former Ottoman colony.
Meanwhile, a coup in July 2013 toppled the Turks' most-trusted regional ally, Egypt's then president, Mohamed Morsi. Today, not only the Turks but also Turkish products -- including even soap operas -- are unwanted in Egypt.
With the downfall -- ironically, instead of Assad -- of their Islamist allies in the region, the Turks recently discreetly moved to win back Egypt, the most populous Muslim nation in the region.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu asked to meet with his Egyptian counterpart, Sameh Hassan Shorky Selim, on the sidelines of the UN summit in September. The Egyptian minister abruptly cancelled the meeting, citing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's "insulting words about [Egyptian] President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi." A statement from the Egyptian foreign ministry called Erdogan's words "lies and fabrication."
More recently, Cairo announced that it would not renew a three-year transit trade agreement with Turkey. The decision indicates a further worsening of bilateral ties, which had been downgraded, as in the instance of Israel, to the level of chargé d'affaires. The transit trade agreement, signed in 2012 when Morsi was in power, had facilitated Turkish exports to African nations and the Gulf through Egypt's mainland, via Egyptian ports. Turkish companies previously sent their cargo to Gulf and African customers through Syria, when relations with Syria were normal. After Erdogan chose cold war with Syria, the Syrian route was closed to the Turks. The Turks then signed the transit deal with Egypt to use their ports and mainland as the alternative route. Now that Egypt will terminate this agreement, Turkish companies will be deprived of an easy route to Gulf and African customers.
Ironically, only six weeks before General al-Sisi ousted Egypt's Islamist President Morsi, Turkey had granted Egypt a $250 million loan to finance Turkish-Egyptian joint defense projects. The loan, the first of its kind, was intended to boost defense cooperation and Turkish exports of defense equipment to Egypt. At that time, Turkey was hoping to sell Egypt scores of Turkish-made drones, tactical naval boats and helicopters.
Egypt's hostile move was a "shock" to Ankara, but only to Ankara. "Apparently everyone dealing with the Egyptians knew this was coming, except the Turks," said one EU ambassador in Ankara.
It was not a secret that Egypt and the Turks' "Muslim brothers, Saudi Arabia" aggressively lobbied against Turkey's failed bid in September to win the seat of the non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council. The EU ambassador said: "There may be further Egyptian moves to retaliate against Turkish hostilities. After Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon and Israel, Turkey has completely lost Egypt."
That mishap left Turkey's Islamists with one ideological ally in the former Ottoman lands: Tunisia, where the Muslim Brotherhood-inspired Ennahda party was in a coalition government -- until this past weekend.
Ennahda, the first Islamist movement to secure power after the 2011 Arab Spring revolts, conceded defeat in elections that are expected to make its main secular rival, Nidaa Tounes party, the strongest force in parliament.
This defeat is a huge setback for Erdogan's Tunisian ideological allies, who had headed a coalition government with two non-religious partners for more than two years.
Tunisia was the final chapter in Erdogan's book of defeat. Neo-Ottomanism was a childish dream. It is, now, a "sealed" childish dream.
In the entire Middle East, Turkey now has only two allies: Qatar, which looks more like a rich, family-owned gas station than a state; and Hamas, a terrorist organization. But Turkey has a rich menu of hostilities: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, (discreetly) Jordan, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, (as always) Cyprus, (now) Tunisia, (also discreetly) Morocco and Algeria, and (most warring factions of) Libya.
In an April 2012 speech, then Foreign Minister Davutoglu defined Turkey's policy goal as: "On the historic march of our holy nation, the AK Party signals the birth of a global power and the mission for a new world order. This is the centenary of our exit from the Middle East... whatever we lost between 1911 and 1923, whatever lands we withdrew from, from 2011 to 2023 we shall once again meet our brothers in those lands. This is a ... historic mission."
That was a not-so-covert message of a strategic goal of reviving the Empire. Only nine years before the deadline to "meet our brothers" and the birth of Turkey as "a global power with a mission to build a new world order," Turkey looks rather dramatically isolated.

Book of defeat




Rani Rupmati, also spelt Roopmati, was a Hindu singer of Malwa. Baz Bahadur, ever so fond of music, was the last independent ruler of Mandu. Once out hunting, Baz Bahadur chanced upon a shepherdess frolicking and singing with her friends. Smitten by both her enchanting beauty and her melodius voice, he begged Roopmati to accompany him to his capital. Roopmati agreed to go to Mandu on the condition that she would live in a palace within sight of her beloved and venerated river, Narmada. Thus was built the Rewa Kund at Mandu.

AKBAR'S GENERAL .. Adham Khan was prompted to conquer Mandu partly due to stories of Rupmati's beauty. When Adham Khan marched on the fort Baz Bahadur met him with his small force and was defeated and coward Baz Bahadur fled to Chittorgarh to seek help. As Adham khan came to Mandu, was surprised by the beauty of Roopmati and Rani Roopmati stoically poisoned herself to avoid capture.,

Thus ending the magical love story ended in the betrayal of Roopmati's foolish confidence in her choosen husband who abandoned her for the safety of his other henchmen ...and this story is repeated with every woman who goes to the MLECHHAS !!

PAINTING : The Defeat of Baz Bahadur of Malwa by the Mughal Troops, while Rani Roopmati, and her female companions, view the scene from the terrace of the fort. 1561- Akbarnama, ca 1590-95.

The history writing by the British was a deliberate and systematic effort. The British used history of India as a tool for demoralizing the natives. History of India was twisted, falsified and misinterpreted on a grand scale. In a letter dated December 16, 1868 the famous Indologist Max Muller wrote to the Duke of Argyll, the then Secretary of State of India,
‘India has been conquered once, but India must be conquered again and that second conquest should be a conquest by education’. (Ref: ‘The Life and Letter of F. Max Muller, edited by Mrs. Max Muller, 1902, Vol.1, p.357). Prof. Max
Muller was not just a philosopher, he was also an examiner for the Indian Civil Service (ICS) examination. Teaching of falsified history played a great part in this ‘second conquest’.* Who were these British history writers ?
They were mainly army officers and administrators of the East India Company. For example: Major General John Malcolm – A Memoir of the Central India (1824) Captain Grant Duff – History of the Marathas (1826)
Gen. Briggs – History of the Rise of Mohammedan Power in India (1829) Lt.Colonel James Todd – Anals and Antiquities of Rajasthan(1829-32) M. Elphinstone (Resident at Peshwa Court, later Governor of Bombay), History of India (1841)
Joseph Cunningham (brother of Gen.A.Cunningham) History of Sikhs (1849) Lt. R.F.Burton – History of Sindh (1851)

Thus this is akin to victors writing the history of the vanquished. How many American Western movies depict the generosity and the bravery of the native Americans? Do you know of a single British movie depicting the courage, intelligence and skill of the German and Japanese soldiers? Hence we can imagine what kind of ‘history’ these British officers and administrators must have written or the slant there in. But these very books became standard textbooks in India and were prescribed for teaching the later day examinees of the Indian Civil service and the Indian army.

British Version of Indian History :

Until the invasion of India by Alexander, there was nothing worth mentioning in India. After Alexander, the Greeks taught civilization to Indians, and gave them the Western ideas. Then came the Shakas, Huns, Kushans etc. They also kept teaching the natives. In the eighth century Mohammed bin Kasim invaded India. It marked the begining of the Muslim rule. Then came the Ghazanvis, Ghoris, Gulams, Turks, Afgans, Khiljis, Tughalaqs, Lodis and Mughals. They were very brave and noble. They carried out reforms after reforms. Lastly came the English. They could not tolerate the prevailing anarchy. ‘We rule India’ they said. Some kings accepted their protection. Those who resisted, collapsed like a deck of cards. The British taught peace and prosperity to this troubled land. Under them everyone is happy. They introduced rule of law which Indians never knew before. Thus the history of hindus (according to the British) is as dark as coal tar. There is nothing in it to be proud of. It is natural that only foreigners should rule India. The best the natives can do is to serve the British by becoming their obedient servants. Why could Indians not counter them with our own version of history ? 

Neglect of History in India :

It must be admitted in all fairness, that it was the British who first wrote the history of India. The Hindus probably are the only race, who despite having such intelligence, bravery and tremendous capacity for successive revivals, have showed such pathetic neglect of history. There was utter lack of historical sense. Lokamanya Tilak writes “Even if we read the whole of Harsha-Charita by Banabhatta, we cannot make out when did this famous king rule or what was the extent of his kingdom ? Had it not been for the Chinese traveller Hsuen Tsang (and the English scholars who translated his memoirs from Chinese into English) we would have never known the history of Harsha “. Records were not properly kept and where they were kept they were not preserved. Even today very important documents are getting rotten and destroyed by insects, in many families, but the owners will not give them to historical societies. History as a subject did not always have a place in education. For example, Maharaja of Jaipur, JaiSingh I never learned about the history of Bappa raval, Prithvi raj Chuhan, Mahmud of Ghazni, Mohammed Ghori and others. During the upbringing of Peshwa Bajirao I, he learnt nothing about the East India Comapny and its resistance to Shivaji at Surat, the history of the Mughals or the history of Maratha-Mughal struggle. Far reaching consequences of such neglect were never realized. A true historian should have the ability to doubt the validity of currently held beliefs in light of new evidence. reject the traditional line of thinking when it becomes evident that it was based on wrong assumptions or weak, flimsy foundations. Analyze the evidence critically and establish the facts based on common sense, reason and logic. All this was cleverly disallowed by the British. Historical research was reduced the drab work of compiling data and translation of documents. The faculty of interpretation was strongly discouraged. It is therefore essential that Indian history be rewritten. 

Rewriting Does Not Mean Fabrication : 

It must be emphasized that rewriting of Indian history does not mean fabrication, as was done by the Nazis or the Communists. Savarkar wrote in 1937 : “ To praise one’s ancestors out of affection for them may be foolish, but humane. However to tolerate deliberate denunciation of the ancestors without challenging the allegations is disgraceful. Because such falsehoods, if repeated often will make us lose self respect and confidence” . “Only those people avoid mention of their defeats in the past that are not strong enough to avenge the defeats “. “When writing history the writer must write the events as they happened. He should not concern himself about the effect of that writing on present situation. .. It is natural to write about glorious deeds of our forefathers, but we are reluctant to describe disgraceful event or disasters, defeats. A historian must avoid such hiding of facts. Whatever happened in the past it should be described as it happened… “

Appeasement of Muslims Leads to Falsification of History by GOI : In December 1937, Savarkar said ” Following
appeasement of Muslims, the government is now trying to pervert history. It is well known that in 1318, Harpaldev of Devagiri was skinned alive by Kutb-uddin Khilji of Delhi. This fact is hidden and the history books tell us that he was
simply arrested. Sambhaji, the brave Maratha king was also tortured to death by Aurungzeb. But history books say that he too was simply arrested. How shameless can they be! “ In the same year Savarkar wrote “ Look at the present attempt by Gandhi and his followers to suppress the atrocities of Muslim rulers and even glorify them (for e.g. Siraj-uddaula and Tipu) .. But has this perversion stopped the riots and the arrogance of Muslims? No.. It is nonsense to say that if we describe the battles or conflicts of the past, the present generation will fight battles again! “ The practice of perverting history continues. Here are some examples: In the medieval times the main source of government income was the land
revenue. Under Hindu rulers its used to be 16 %. Under Akbar it became 33 %. It stayed same under Jehangir. Under the
Golden rule of Shah Jahan it was raised to 50 % and it stayed the same during Aurungzeb who added Jizya tax on
Hindus. Under Allauddin Khilji the land revenue also was 50 %. This information is kept out of history books. We are taught that in 1303 CE Allauddin Khilji defeated Rajputs and captured Chitod Fort. But we are never told that Hamer Singh, a Rajput prince defeated and recaptured the fort 10 years later. It is well known that Prophet Mohammed fled from Mecca to Medina in 622 CE. Muslims all over the world accept the fact. But in 1982 under pressure from Muslims Maharashtra government ordered that word ‘fled’ must be deleted. So now it reads that Prophet Mohammed went from mecca to Medina in 622 CE. Even Nehru would have been amazed by this because in his book ‘Some Glimpses of World History’ he does say that Prophet Mohammed fled from mecca to Medina. In 1982 the Central Ministry of Education issued guidelines for writing and teaching of Indian history which among other things forbid describing the medieval period as a period of conflict between Hindus and Muslims. In short, Shivaji’s virtues should not be glorified and Aurungzeb’s bigotry and despotic nature must not be described! In 1982 Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) in their publication ‘Taj Museum’ admitted that on the site of Taj Mahal stood the mansion (manzil) of Raja Man Singh which was at the time of in possession of his grand son Raja Jai Singh. So what happened to the mansion ? The answer is simple. It is the same as Taj mahal. But that much ASI official would not concede. In 1984 Prof.Marvin Mills wrote Director General
of Archaeological Survey of India that the Taj dispute be settled by scientific tests on brick samples taken on 20 locations. The Director General replied “The Taj is well dated on documentary evidence .” BARC, Bombay and PRL, Ahmedabad are also seized of the problem. (this was a lie. Both the labs did not receive any samples for testing) and IT IS NOT
Such has been Government of India. What about the historians?

Airplane, Helicopter, and Car — All in One

SkyCruiser is an electric hybrid aircraft that could switch between airplane and quadcopter modes, and also be driven like a car. (Yahoo News)In the future, travelers may no longer have to decide between an airplane, a helicopter, and a car. A new concept could make good on years of ideas from science fiction, by combining all three into one device. 
Arizona-based startup Krossblade wants to be the company to offer this to us in the future.
It recently introduced the SkyCruiser, an electric hybrid aircraft that could switch between airplane and quadcopter modes, and also be driven like a car. 
The benefit of this, according to the company, is that while airplanes are fast and efficient and can cover long distances quickly, a helicopter can take off and land vertically, eliminating the need for an airfield.  
The company wants SkyCruiser to become a point-to-point vehicle and the only thing a passenger will need to go door to door.
Though the SkyCruiser is still in the concept phase, the company is already working on a smaller version, the SkyProwler.
No price or delivery date has been set for either concept, but we are going to start studying for the driver's test now, just in case.

ताजमहल में नहीं जैनाबाद में मुमताज की कब्र, बच्चे को जन्म देते हुई थी मौत

ताजमहल में नहीं यहां है मुमताज की कब्र, बच्चे को जन्म देते हुई थी मौत
ताजमहल में नहीं यहां है मुमताज की कब्र, बच्चे को जन्म देते हुई थी मौतइंदौर। अपनी कई ऐतिहासिक धरोहरों के लिए जाना जाने वाले मध्यप्रदेश के बुरहानपुर जिले में ही शाहजहां की बेगम मुमताज की असली कब्र है। बुरहानपुर में अपनी चौदहवीं संतान को जन्म देने के दौरान मुमताज की मृत्यु हो गई थी। इसके बाद उन्हें छह महीने तक यहीं दफनाया गया और बाद में शव को कब्र से निकलवा कर शाहजहां अपने साथ आगरा ले गए, जहां मुमताज के शव को ताजमहल में दफनाया गया।
जैनाबाद में है असली कब्र
सम्राट शाहजहां की बेगम मुमताज की मौत न तो आगरा में हुई और न ही उसे वहां दफनाया गया। असल में मुमताज की मौत मध्य प्रदेश के बुरहानपुर जिले की जैनाबाद तहसील में हुई थी। मुमताज की कब्र ताप्ती नदी के पूर्व में आज भी स्थित है। इतिहासकारों के अनुसार लोधी ने जब 1631 में विद्रोह का झंडा उठाया था तब शाहजहां अपनी पत्नी मुमताज महल को लेकर बुरहानपुर आ गया था। उन दिनों मुमताज गर्भवती थी। सात जून 1631 में बच्चे को जन्म देते समय उसकी मौत हो गई। दूसरे दिन गुरुवार की शाम उसे वहीँ आहुखाना के बाग में दफना दिया गया। यह इमारत आज भी खस्ता हाल में है। इतिहासकारों के मुताबिक मुमताज की मौत के बाद शाहजहां का मन हरम में नहीं रम सका। कुछ दिनों के भीतर ही उसके बाल सफ़ेद हो गए। बादशाह जब तक बुरहानपुर में रहे नदी में उतरकर बेगम की कब्र पर हर जुमेरात को वहां गया। जिस जगह मुमताज की लाश रखी गई थी उसकी चारदीवारी में दीये जलाने के लिए आले बने हैं। यहां 40 दिन तक दीये जलाए गए। कब्र के पास एक इबादतगाह भी मौजूद है। एक दिन उसने मुमताज की कब्र पर हाथ रखकर कसम खाई कि तेरी याद में एक ऐसी इमारत बनवाऊंगा, जिसके बराबर की दुनिया में दूसरी नहीं होगी। बताते हैं कि शाहजहां की इच्छा थी कि ताप्ती नदी के तट पर ही मुमताज कि स्मृति में एक भव्य इमारत बने। शाहजहां ने ईरान से शिल्पकारों को जैनाबाद बुलवाया। शिल्पकारों ने ताप्ती नदी के का निरीक्षण कर इस जगह पर कोई इमारत बनाने से मना कर दिया। तब शहंशाह ने आगरा की और रुख किया। जिस स्थान पर आज ताजमहल है उसको लेकर लोगों के अलग-अलग मत है।
लाश लाने खर्च हुए आठ करोड़
कहा जाता है कि इसे बनाने के लिए ईरान, तुर्की, फ़्रांस और इटली से शिल्पकारों को बुलया गया। उस समय वेनिस से प्रसिद्ध सुनार व जेरोनियो को बुलवाया गया था. शिराज से उस्ताद ईसा आफंदी भी आए, जिन्होंने ताजमहल कि रूपरेखा तैयार की थी। उसी के अनुरूप कब्र की जगह तय की गई। 22 सालों बाद जब इसका काम पूरा हो गया तो मुमताज के शव को पुनः दफनाने की प्रक्रिया शुरू हुई। बुरहानपुर के जैनाबाद से मुमताज के जनाजे को एक विशाल जुलूस के साथ आगरा ले जाया गया और ताजमहल के गर्भगृह में दफना दिया गया। जुलूस पर उस समय आठ करोड़ रुपये खर्च हुए थे।
बुरहानपुर में ही असली कब्र
बुहरानपुर स्टेशन से लगभग दस किलोमीटर दूर शहर के बीच बहने वाली ताप्ती नदी के उस पर जैनाबाद (फारुकी काल), जो कभी बादशाहों की शिकारगाह (आहुखाना) हुआ करता था। दक्षिण का सूबेदार बनाने के बाद शहजादा दानियाल ने इस जगह को अपने पसंद के अनुरूप महल, हौज, बाग-बगीचे के बीच नहरों का निर्माण करवाया। लेकिन 8 अप्रेल 1605 को मात्र तेईस साल की उम्र मे सूबेदार की मौत हो गई। इसके बाद आहुखाना उजड़ने लगा। जहांगीर के शासन काल में अब्दुल रहीम खानखाना ने ईरान से खिरनी एवं अन्य प्रजातियों के पौधे मंगवाकर आहुखाना को फिर से ईरानी बाग के रूप में विकसित कराया। इस बाग का नाम शाहजहां की पुत्री आलमआरा के नाम पर रखा गया।
बादशाहनामा के लेखक अब्दुल हामिद लाहौरी साहब के मुताबिक शाहजहां की प्रेयसी मुमताज महल की जब प्रसव के दौरान मौत हो गई तो उसे यहीं पर स्थाई रूप से दफ़न कर दिया गया था। जिसके लिए आहुखाने के एक बड़े हौज़ को बंद करके तल घर बनाया गया और वहीँ पर मुमताज के जनाजे को छह माह रखने के बाद शाहजहां का बेटा शहजादा शुजा, सुन्नी बेगम और शाह हाकिम वजीर खान, मुमताज के शव को लेकर बुहरानपुर के इतवारागेट-दिल्ली दरवाज़े से होते हुए आगरा ले गए. जहां पर यमुना के तट पर स्थित राजा मान सिंह के पोते राजा जय सिंह के बाग में में बने ताजमहल में सम्राट शाहजहां की प्रेयसी एवं पत्नी मुमताज महल के जनाजे को दोबारा दफना दिया गया।

सूर्य पुत्र कर्ण ने शुरू की थी छठ पूजा

सूर्य पुत्र कर्ण ने शुरू की थी छठ पूजा
छठ या सूर्य पूजा महाभारत काल से की जाती है। कहते हैं कि छठ पूजा की शुरुआत सूर्य पुत्र कर्ण ने की थी। कर्ण भगवान सूर्य के परम भक्त थे।पुराणों के अनुसार वे प्रतिदिन घंटों कमर तक पानी में खड़े रहकर सूर्य को अर्घ्‍य देते थे। सूर्य की कृपा से ही वे महान योद्धा बने थे। महाभारत में सूर्य पूजा का एक और वर्णन मिलता है।इसके अनुसार पांडवों की पत्नी द्रोपदी अपने परिजनों के उत्तम स्वास्थ्य की कामना और लंबी उम्र के लिए नियमित सूर्य पूजा करती थीं।

एफिडेविट बनाने में हर वर्ष खर्च होते हैं 8000 करोड़ रुपए -

यह देखते हुए कि हम भारतीय हर वर्ष करीब आठ हजार करोड़ रुपए शपथ-पत्र बनवाने पर खर्च कर देते हैं, केंद्र सरकार ने सभी मंत्रालयों और राज्य सरकारों को सरकारी कामों के लिए दस्तावेजों के स्व-प्रमाणन (सेल्फ अटेस्टेशन) को बढ़ावा देने को कहा है।कार्मिक और प्रशिक्षण विभाग ने केंद्र सरकार के मंत्रालयों से वर्तमान में आवश्यक शपथ-पत्रों और विभिन्न आवेदनों के साथ लगने वाले दस्तावेजों के राजपत्रित अधिकारी से प्रमाणित करने की विभिन्ना चरणों में समीक्षा करने को कहा है। साथ ही जहां संभव हो, दस्तावेजों के स्व-प्रमाणन करवाने की व्यवस्था करने और शपथ-पत्र समाप्त करने को कहा है।पैसे और समय की बर्बादीकुछ मंत्रालयों ने आवेदकों द्वारा अंक सूची, जन्म प्रमाण-पत्र का स्व-प्रमाणन शुरू भी कर दिया है। इस प्रक्रिया के तहत अंतिम चरण में ओरिजिनल दस्तावेज दिखाने की व्यवस्था की गई है। मंत्रालय का कहना है कि दस्तावेजों का स्व-प्रमाणन "सिटिजन फ्रेंडली" है। शपथ पत्र बनवाना गरीबों के लिए पैसे की और नागरिकों और सरकारी अधिकारियों के लिए समय की बर्बादी है।

दिल्ली में गंदे नाले में तब्दील हो चुकी यमुना अगले तीन साल में निर्मल हो जाएगी। जापान ने अगले तीन सालों के भीतर यमुना को शुद्ध कर देने का दावा किया है। उसका कहना है कि यमुना का पानी लोगों के लिए तैरने लायक ही नहीं बल्कि पीने लायक भी हो जाएगा।जापान इंटरनेशनल कोऑपरेशन एजेंसी (जीका) के मुखिया सिन्या एजिमा ने कहा कि यमुना में गिरने वाले नालों और सीवर को रोकने की दिशा में संतोषजनक प्रगति हुई है।जीका और शहरी विकास मंत्रालय के साथ हुई बैठक में यमुना के स्वच्छ होने को लेकर जापान के प्रतिनिधियों ने काफी उम्मीद जताई। प्रतिनिधियों ने कहा कि यमुना की सफाई के लेकर चल रही परियोजनाओं का प्रदर्शन संतोषजनक है।उनका मानना है कि यदि तत्काल उन्हें आगे काम शुरू करने का मौका मिल जाए तो तीन साल में दिल्ली के अंदर यमुना का पानी पीने लायक शुद्ध किया जा सकता है। ध्यान रहे कि जीका शहरी क्षेत्रों में जल आपूर्ति व सीवर प्रणाली से जुड़ी परियोजनाओं पर न सिर्फ काम करती है, बल्कि वित्तीय मदद भी देती है।फिलहाल देश के विभिन्न राज्यों में 16 बड़ी परियोजनाओं से जीका जुड़ा है। दिल्ली के अलावा उत्तर प्रदेश, राजस्थान, पंजाब, उड़ीसा, पश्चिम बंगाल, तमिलनाडु, आंध्र प्रदेश, केरल, कर्नाटक व गोवा की प्रस्तावित परियोजनाओं के लिए जापान से 28660 करोड़ रुपये का ऋण प्रस्तावित है।जीका प्रमुख एजिमा ने बताया कि इस मदद के अलावा शहरी क्षेत्र में जल और परिवहन के लिए उनका संगठन 2.40 लाख करोड़ रुपये की वित्तीय मदद मुहैया कराने को तैयार है।उन्होंने कहा कि भारत के शहरी क्षेत्रों में जलापूर्ति और जल शोधन एक बड़ी चुनौती है। ऑपरेशन एंड मेंटीनेंस के साथ स्थायी कार्य के लिए स्थानीय निकायों को और प्रभावी होना होगा।पानी की किल्लत को कम करने के लिए रिसाइक्लिंग बहुत जरूरी है। इसी तरह शहरों के भीतर परिवहन बड़ी चुनौती है। इसके लिए मेट्रो रेल प्रणाली, क्षेत्रीय ट्रांजिट सिस्टम, मोनो रेल और लाइट रेल जैसे ट्रांसपोर्ट के साधन जुटाने होंगे।शहरी विकास सचिव शंकर अग्रवाल और जापान के संयुक्त कार्य समूह के संयुक्त कार्य समूह के महानिदेशक योइची नाकागामी की यह बैठक प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी की जापान यात्रा के दौरान हुए समझौते पर अमल के सिलसिले में हुई थी।यह पहली बार है जब दो देशों के बीच संयुक्त बैठक में राज्यों को भी शामिल किया गया। इनमें गुजरात, महाराष्ट्र, मध्य प्रदेश, उड़ीसा व केरल प्रमुख थे। इस दौरान महाराष्ट्र सरकार ने विस्तृत परियोजनाओं का जिक्र किया।

The Indian government had intelligence inputs way back in 2005 about radicals from Bangladesh infiltrating into the country with a strategic, long-term plans to provide support to various insurgent groups like the Ulfa and making West Bengal as the launching pad to spread their operations, Wikileaks has revealed.
The released cables, which originated from Kolkata on Deecmber 16, 2005, contain only part of the original cable. It states, "The (Indian) authorities are concerned that these elements (radical Islamists) have a strategic, long-term plans to take advantage of the porous border to infiltrate India and provide support to insurgent groups."
The Wikileaks cable state, "The three terrorist organizations of primary interest to Indian authorities monitoring the border are Jamat-ul-Mujahideen (JUM) ( now JMB) , Jagrata Muslim Janata, Bangladesh (JMJB) and Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami (Huji). The contacts said, without identifying the groups, that terrorist organizations previously based in Afghanistan have moved their operations to Bangladesh where there is less international focus on the fundamentalist Islamic community."

Terror Nexus in Bengal.

Terror Nexus in Bengal. 
Preparation for another 'Direct Action Day' ?
The center has directed the NIA to investigate the Burdwan blast case which has unmasked the terror network in Bengal where Madarsas were used as Terrorist Safe Houses and Terror factories. NSA Chief is on his way to investigate this with all the attention it deserves.

NIA is trying to dilute the matter by saying this entire setup was directed against Bangladesh. Yeah right !

There are few points which hint at a greater conspiracy.
■ NIA has found 58 terror hubs in Bengal. 43 were found in Murshidabad District alone. (there could be a lot lot more that haven't been found yet) 
■ There are 20 districts in Bengal, just like Murshidabad. So the actual number of such terror hubs can be mind-boggling ! 
■ These mujahideens are active not just in Bengal but also in majority of North-East, parts of Bihar, Jharkhand and Odisha as well. The illegal Bangladeshis easily mingle with the local population of their community.
■ Each terror camp makes 1000s of crude bombs and trains hundreds of terrorists who are prepared to wage war against India.
If the situation is not controlled in time, another Civil War is inevitable.
We, the people, have always assumed that thing can't get wrong for us and all this "threat-perception" is an exaggeration. We think all the terror is somebody else's problem; that we're safe in our houses and will remain so.

It was this same myopia that that led us to face the shock of Direct Action Day (1946). On that day, Jinnah had announced :-
‘We shall have India divided or India destroyed’. He did both.
Thousands of Hindus in Calcutta were massacred by the mob of Jihadis.
Direct Action Day is also called as Great Calcutta Killings.

Now in 2014, the Jihadis have once again started preparation for the massacre the people of India with the help of illegal Bangladeshis. All they are waiting for is one call from their handlers. And then, Hindus might not get time to protect themselves. This HAS happened before.

To avoid this, the center must go to the depth of Bengal Terror Network and dismantle it. 
Otherwise, there will be a war. Civil War.

A snippet of an article about Dubai from the Independent:

There are three different Dubais, all swirling around each other. There are the expats, there are the Emiratis, headed by Sheikh Mohammed; and then there is the foreign underclass who built the city, and are trapped here. They are hidden in plain view. You see them everywhere, in dirt-caked blue uniforms, being shouted at by their superiors, like a chain gang – but you are trained not to look. It is like a mantra: the Sheikh built the city. The Sheikh built the city. Workers? What workers?
Every evening, the hundreds of thousands of young men who build Dubai are bussed from their sites to a vast concrete wasteland an hour out of town, where they are quarantined away. Until a few years ago they were shuttled back and forth on cattle trucks, but the expats complained this was unsightly, so now they are shunted on small metal buses that function like greenhouses in the desert heat. They sweat like sponges being slowly wrung out.
Sonapur is a rubble-strewn patchwork of miles and miles of identical concrete buildings. Some 300,000 men live piled up here, in a place whose name in Hindi means "City of Gold". In the first camp I stop at – riven with the smell of sewage and sweat – the men huddle around, eager to tell someone, anyone, what is happening to them.

Sahinal Monir, a slim 24-year-old from the deltas of Bangladesh. "To get you here, they tell you Dubai is heaven. Then you get here and realise it is hell," he says. Four years ago, an employment agent arrived in Sahinal's village in Southern Bangladesh. He told the men of the village that there was a place where they could earn 40,000 takka a month (£400) just for working nine-to-five on construction projects. It was a place where they would be given great accommodation, great food, and treated well. All they had to do was pay an up-front fee of 220,000 takka (£2,300) for the work visa – a fee they'd pay off in the first six months, easy. So Sahinal sold his family land, and took out a loan from the local lender, to head to this paradise.
As soon as he arrived at Dubai airport, his passport was taken from him by his construction company. He has not seen it since. He was told brusquely that from now on he would be working 14-hour days in the desert heat – where western tourists are advised not to stay outside for even five minutes in summer, when it hits 55 degrees – for 500 dirhams a month (£90), less than a quarter of the wage he was promised. If you don't like it, the company told him, go home. "But how can I go home? You have my passport, and I have no money for the ticket," he said. "Well, then you'd better get to work," they replied.
Sahinal was in a panic. His family back home – his son, daughter, wife and parents – were waiting for money, excited that their boy had finally made it. But he was going to have to work for more than two years just to pay for the cost of getting here – and all to earn less than he did in Bangladesh.
He shows me his room. It is a tiny, poky, concrete cell with triple-decker bunk-beds, where he lives with 11 other men. All his belongings are piled onto his bunk: three shirts, a spare pair of trousers, and a cellphone. The room stinks, because the lavatories in the corner of the camp – holes in the ground – are backed up with excrement and clouds of black flies. There is no air conditioning or fans, so the heat is "unbearable. You cannot sleep. All you do is sweat and scratch all night." At the height of summer, people sleep on the floor, on the roof, anywhere where they can pray for a moment of breeze.
The water delivered to the camp in huge white containers isn't properly desalinated: it tastes of salt. "It makes us sick, but we have nothing else to drink," he says.
The work is "the worst in the world," he says. "You have to carry 50kg bricks and blocks of cement in the worst heat imaginable ... This heat – it is like nothing else. You sweat so much you can't pee, not for days or weeks. It's like all the liquid comes out through your skin and you stink. You become dizzy and sick but you aren't allowed to stop, except for an hour in the afternoon. You know if you drop anything or slip, you could die. If you take time off sick, your wages are docked, and you are trapped here even longer."
He is currently working on the 67th floor of a shiny new tower, where he builds upwards, into the sky, into the heat. He doesn't know its name. In his four years here, he has never seen the Dubai of tourist-fame, except as he constructs it floor-by-floor.

Is he angry? He is quiet for a long time. "Here, nobody shows their anger. You can't. You get put in jail for a long time, then deported." Last year, some workers went on strike after they were not given their wages for four months. The Dubai police surrounded their camps with razor-wire and water-cannons and blasted them out and back to work.
The "ringleaders" were imprisoned. I try a different question: does Sohinal regret coming? All the men look down, awkwardly. "How can we think about that? We are trapped. If we start to think about regrets..." He lets the sentence trail off. Eventually, another worker breaks the silence by adding: "I miss my country, my family and my land. We can grow food in Bangladesh. Here, nothing grows. Just oil and buildings."
Since the recession hit, they say, the electricity has been cut off in dozens of the camps, and the men have not been paid for months. Their companies have disappeared with their passports and their pay. "We have been robbed of everything. Even if somehow we get back to Bangladesh, the loan sharks will demand we repay our loans immediately, and when we can't, we'll be sent to prison."
This is all supposed to be illegal. Employers are meant to pay on time, never take your passport, give you breaks in the heat – but I met nobody who said it happens. Not one. These men are conned into coming and trapped into staying, with the complicity of the Dubai authorities.
Sahinal could well die out here. A British man who used to work on construction projects told me: "There's a huge number of suicides in the camps and on the construction sites, but they're not reported. They're described as 'accidents'." Even then, their families aren't free: they simply inherit the debts. A Human Rights Watch study found there is a "cover-up of the true extent" of deaths from heat exhaustion, overwork and suicide, but the Indian consulate registered 971 deaths of their nationals in 2005 alone. After this figure was leaked, the consulates were told to stop counting.
At night, in the dusk, I sit in the camp with Sohinal and his friends as they scrape together what they have left to buy a cheap bottle of spirits. They down it in one ferocious gulp. "It helps you to feel numb", Sohinal says through a stinging throat. In the distance, the glistening Dubai skyline he built stands, oblivious.

◉ 02nd Oct 2014, Blast in TMC leader’s house in Burdwan.
◉ 10th Oct 2014, Two more blasts. One in Birbhum dist. & one in Burdwan dist.TMC cadres involved.
◉ 13th Oct 2014, Blast in TMC leader’s house in Malda.
◉ 16th Oct 2014, Blast in Bidi factory owned by TMC leader’s brother in Murshidabad.
◉ 16th Oct 2014, 40 grenades and IEDs recovered by NIA in Burdwan House
◉ 17th Oct 2014, 65 crude bombs found in Kaliachak block in Malda
According to Tapan Ghosh, a prominent Human Right's activist in Bengal, both Burdwan SP & Murshidabad SP are radical Muslims who always try to promote Islam misusing their official position. 39 new and enormous mosques have come up in Murshidabad and radicalisation is on a new high.
Bengal is the favourite transit point for illegal Bangladesis and then they spread all over India where local politicians help them mingle in. 500 fake PAN cards were found in Bhayandar Creek yesterday - all made for Bangladeshis. This is a matter of national security and deserves a serious investigation.
The question now is, if found guilty (as it's clear prima facie) after a formal investigation, shouldn't this party be banned ?



Le sacrifice d'Abraham (Matthias Stom)The following 30 violent exhortations are drawn from Jewish, Christian and Muslim scriptures. The generic word “God” is used for all deity names, and names of places or people have been replaced with generic terms. How well do you know your Torah, Bible or Quran and Hadith? Can you tell which is which? Give it a try and then check the key at the bottom.
1. Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the [holy man] who represents God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged.
2. I decided to order a man to lead the prayer and then take a flame to burn all those, who had not left their houses for the prayer, burning them alive inside their homes.
3. I will fill your mountains with the dead. Your hills, your valleys, and your streams will be filled with people slaughtered by the sword. I will make you desolate forever. Your cities will never be rebuilt. Then you will know that I am God.
4. Fight them until there is no more [disbelief or worshipping of other gods] and worship is for God alone.
5. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother-in-law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
6. Whoso fighteth in the way of God, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.
7. Make ready to slaughter [the infidel’s] sons for the guilt of their fathers; Lest they rise and posses the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants.
8. [God’s messenger]… was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The [holy man] replied, “They [women and children] are from them [unbelievers].”
9. Then I heard God say to the other men, “Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! Kill them all – old and young, girls and women and little children.”
10. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.
11. Keep [my holiday], for it is holy. Anyone who desecrates it must die.
12. The punishment of those who wage war against God and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.
13. If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death.
14. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he had made a great slaughter in the land…
15. Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.
16. I shall terrorize the [heathens]. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them, because they oppose God and his apostle.
17. A [holy man’s] daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death.
18. So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.
19. Everyone who would not seek God was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.
20. And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction.
21. But if [a girl wasn't a virgin on her wedding night] and evidence of the girl’s virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her father’s house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against God’s people by her unchasteness in her father’s house. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst.
22. The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say, “O [believer]! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”
23. If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you.
24. God’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but God.”
25. Cursed be he who does God’s work remissly, cursed he who holds back his sword from blood.
26. God said, “A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. [Prophet], you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But God desires killing them to manifest the religion.”
27. Anyone who blasphemes God’s name must be stoned to death by the whole community of [believers].
28. When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) [your religion]; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them… If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them [a tax]. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek God’s help and fight them.
29. Anyone else who goes too near the [Holy Place] will be executed.
30. Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us.
Is the Quran more violent than the Bible? The question is hard to answer. A tally at the Skeptic’s Annotated Bible counts 842 violent or cruel passages in the Bible as compared to 333 in the Quran. That said, the Bible is a much thicker tome, and even though the New Testament endorses and adds to the violence in the Old, when percentages are compared, the Quran comes out ahead. In addition, the kinds of cruelty and violence vary as do the perpetrator and victim and the extent to which any verse can be interpreted as divine sanction for the behavior in question. Either way, this short test offers an illustrative sample from each sacred text.
Bible and Quran believers who recognize verses in this list will no doubt protest that they have been taken out of context, as indeed they have. I think the appropriate response to such a complaint is a question: What context, exactly, would make these verses uplifting, inspiring or worthy of praise? In what context are passages like these some of the most important and holy guidance that the creator of the universe might think to impart to humankind? In what context is a book that contains these passages and many, many more like them the apogee of divine goodness and timeless wisdom?
Members of each Abrahamic tradition are quick to point out the rational and moral flaws in the others. I wonder sometimes, what this world might be like if they were as quick to examine the flaws in their own.
