हिमाद्री तुंग श्रृंग से प्रबुद्ध शुद्ध भारती - स्वयंप्रभा समुज्जवला स्वतंत्रता पुकारती - अमर्त्य वीर पुत्र हो, दृढ़-प्रतिज्ञ सोच लो, प्रशस्त पुण्य पंथ हैं - बढ़े चलो बढ़े चलो। असंख्य कीर्ति-रश्मियाँ विकीर्ण दिव्य दाह-सी। सपूत मातृभूमि के रुको न शूर साहसी। अराती सैन्य सिंधु में - सुबाड़वाग्नि से जलो, प्रवीर हो जयी बनो - बढ़े चलो बढ़े चलो। - जयशंकर प्रसाद I rember my school days when we used to do "Prabhat Pheri" on Independence day and Republic day... singing this song together.... that time I didn't understood the meaning of this song... but as I see myself leaving this institute and joining my Karmabhoomi... I suddenly feel the spirit of this poem... which encourages me to excel in whatever I am going to do... A message to all the youngsters.. प्रवीर हो जयी बनो - बढ़े चलो बढ़े चलो।

President's rule in Bihar...

Sounds a good news to me.. though peoples have always said that a governemnt of the people for the people and by the people (democratically elected one) is better than the President's rule, I think anything other than Laloo is good for Bihar... atleast for some days...

Certainly no new government can change the situation of Bihar in a night becauase Laloo Raj hasn't left any stone unturned while eating the entire state... But the announcement of K. P. S. Gill as the security advisor of the governor gives me some hopes that alteast he can do something to improve the law and order in Bihar...

Somehow I have a very good impression of him. I always saw him as another hero of our times...He made Panjab a terrorist free state... well, people criticize his style but I think that at times you need to take some strong decisions... The only thing that has to be seen is whether he is still the same Gill or has lost his touch over the time.

Another news of concern is that the President's rule is very much influenced by the center... and as the central government has Laloo as its ally it might end up as a psuedo Laloo Raj...

Well !! I just hope that it won't happen ???

Slashdot.. + Indian

Indian beheaded in Saudi Arabia

Just read this shocking news in Rediff... One Indian, Malaya Maroti Bajantra, was beheaded in public because he was convicted of robbery and murder... again another example of Hummurabian justice.... I don't say that a criminal shoudn't get punishment... but this is really outrageous ... don't these countries have any value for life .... when the entire world is thinking over lifting the Capital Punishment... we still see these stinking examples... When will they understand the value of human life .... The news article had one line : Among those beheaded are mostly Asians as the Saudi government often sets free Western convicts because of political pressure. I don't know how much truth is in the above statment... but its really shameful if our government is not doing anything to stop this kind of incidences.. And what is the media doing about all this... they seem very interested in publishing the news of beheading.. didn't they find this news worth consideration when they come to know about the trial in the first place ... May be something could have happened in that situation... Well! may be in that case it wouldn't have been such a big NEWS ...
