Chandrayaan-1 (चंद्रयान-१, lit: moon vehicle was India's first unmanned lunar probe. It was launched by the Indian Space Research Organisation in October 2008, and operated until August 2009. The mission included a lunar orbiter and an impactor. India launched the spacecraft by a modified version of the PSLV, PSLV C11 on 22 October 2008 from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota, Nellore District, Andhra Pradesh, about 80 km north of Chennai, at 06:22 IST (00:52 UTC). Former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee announced the project on course in his Independence Day speech on Aug 15, 2003. The mission was a major boost to India's space program, India researched and developed its own technology in order to explore the Moon. The vehicle was successfully inserted into lunar orbit on 8 November 2008.

On 14 November 2008, the Moon Impact Probe separated from the Chandrayaan orbiter at 20:06 and struck the south pole in a controlled manner, making India the fourth country to place its flag on the Moon. The probe impacted near Shackleton Crater at 20:31 ejecting underground soil that could be analysed for the presence of lunar water ice.

The estimated cost for the project was Indian rupee386 crore (US$ 90 million).

The remote sensing lunar satellite had a mass of 1,380 kilograms (3,042 lb) at launch and 675 kilograms (1,488 lb) in lunar orbit. It carried high resolution remote sensing equipment for visible, near infrared, and soft and hard X-ray frequencies. Over a two-year period, it was intended to survey the lunar surface to produce a complete map of its chemical characteristics and three-dimensional topography. The polar regions are of special interest as they might contain ice. The lunar mission carries five ISRO payloads and six payloads from other space agencies including NASA, ESA, and the Bulgarian Aerospace Agency, which were carried free of cost.

After suffering from several technical issues including failure of the star sensors and poor thermal shielding, Chandrayaan stopped sending radio signals at 1:30 AM IST on 29 August 2009 shortly after which, the ISRO officially declared the mission over. Chandrayaan operated for 312 days as opposed to the intended two years but the mission achieved 95 percent of its planned objectives. Among its many achievements was the discovery of the widespread presence of water molecules in lunar soil.

Yesterday, it was Alahabad high court's verdict on the Aayodhya issue. Lot of hype was created by the media and the government. Everybody, at least, I was hoping that something will happen. It was but natural seeding the history of the issue. Still the things happened in 1992 is not forgettable. But to my surprise the Indian public has shown lot of maturity. In fact the 3 judges appointed for this issue has handled this issue tactically so that no section of the society is hurt. Now really I am getting the feeling that we have moved lot ahead than 1992. Definately these are the signs of India to become a superpower, economically, socially and intellectually in the near future. As our minister P. Chidambaram has told that India story is much more than the dispute on some piece of land. The Indian Public has reacted favorably. Now its time for politicians to react back accordingly and positively to take India to the next step on the path of the progress.

Roots of Ganesh Festival

Next Post Previous Post

.


Before 1893, Ganesh Chaturthi used to be an important family festival during the Peshwa rule in Maharashtra, but that year, Indian freedom fighter and social reformer Lokmanya Tilak transformed the annual festival into a large, well-organized public event[1].


Tilak recognized the wide appeal of the deity Ganesh as "the god for everybody"[2][3], and popularized Ganesh Chaturthi as a national festival in order "to bridge the gap between Brahmins and 'non-Brahmins' and find a context in which to build a new grassroots unity between them", and generate nationalistic fervor among people in Maharashtra against the British colonial rule[4][5].

Tilak encouraged installation of large public images of Ganesh in pavilions, and also established the practice of submerging in rivers, sea, or other pools of water all public images of the deity on the tenth day after Ganesh Chaturthi[6].

Under Tilak's encouragement, the festival facilitated community participation and involvement in the form of intellectual discourses, poetry recitals, performances of plays, musical concerts, and folk dances. It served as a meeting ground for people of all castes and communities in times when, in order to exercise control over the population, the British discouraged social and political gatherings.Mumbai's godfather Vardhabhai (Varadharajan Mudaliar) recently popularized Ganesh Festival in the recent known times.

The struggle for freedom

1857

The Revolt of 1857 shook the very foundation of the British rule in India. In March 1857, the Indian army at Barrackpore mutinied and this rebellion spread to the other areas to become a bid for Indian independence.The revolt proved a turning point in India's history though it was suppressed by the British. It was the first serious attempt of a large section of the country to throw off the British yoke. The uprising was expression of widespread discontent with and anger towards the British rule.After the revolt the British parliament took over the entire responsibility of governing India.


1929
Mahatma Gandhi led the civil Disobedience Movement which was launched in the Congress Session of December 1929. The aim of this movement was a complete disobedience of the orders of the British Government. It during this movement that it was decided that India would celebrate 26th January as Independence day all over the country. On 26th January 1930 meetings were held all over the country and the Congress tricolour was hoisted .


1942
We shall either free India or die in the attempt; We shall not live to see the perpetuation of our slavery" - Mahatma Gandhi ( Quit India Movement) The Congress passed the famous Quit India resolution at a session in Bombay. The movement called for non-violent but wide spread struggle for India's freedom. But before the Congress could start the movement, the government arrested all the major leaders and the Congress was declared illegal. Spontaneous popular revolts broke out through out the country with the battle cry of 'British Quit India'

Indian National Congress
In 1885, the Indian National Congress was formed under the guidance of Allen Octavian Hume. The INC became the the chief organization representing the will of the common people and led the Indians in their struggle for freedom. Under the presidentship of Womesh Chandra Banerjee, the Congress held it's first meeting in December 1885 at Bombay. After that, the Congress held the succeeding meetings every year in December in the different parts of the country. The congress initially followed the strategy of Petition, Pray and Protest. It highlighted the need for giving Indians greater power in legislative councils and 'to check the Drain of wealth' - a theory which was put forward by Dadabhai Naoroji.

Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we will redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance .... We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again."

- Jawaharlal Nehru (Speech on Indian Independence Day, 1947).

The day when India woke up to freedom back in 1947 was a day of great celebration. A country got rid of her foreign yoke and became a sovereign nation, she celebrated her sovereignty on this day - the triumph of numerous martyred souls. It was a day of fulfillment, it was the day of a new beginning, a birth of a nation.On the stroke of midnight, a country came into life again as the british handed over the governance of India to the Indian leaders.The long and difficult struggle had borne fruit at last, though the happiness was marred by the fact that the country was divided into India and Pakistan and the violent communal riots had left the countries permanently scarred.

That was the price that India paid for her dearly bought freedom. The british government declared the country independent and left for their own shores. On the 15th of August, 1947, India became completely independent. It was on this historic date that Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime Minister of India, unfurled the Indian tricolor on the ramparts the magnificent Red Fort, symbolically marking the end of the british colonial rule.

Independence Day – Is it a practice of patriotism?

Next Post Previous Post

.

It was the night when the country was preparing to celebrate it’s 61st Independence Day and some students in a small town were busy in a pre-welcome interaction session (some people call it ragging) with their juniors in the hostel. Interaction topics were mind blowing: write a passage of thousand words on an empty glass. To enhance the concentration you need to keep an empty glass right in front of your eyes and watch it time to time while writing. Scold your best actor or actress as badly as you can. Tell the names of all your thirty seniors in one breath, if fails try till you succeed. It went on like this till one topic came in which juniors were asked to tell five things that make them proud to be Indian. One junior started saying Taj Mahal, Kohinoor diamond, before he could tell the third one he fell on the floor with a sudden heavy slap from a senior. You idiot, don’t even know five things to be proud about India. They are population, poverty, illiteracy, corruption and unemployment. No other country has done as much progress after sixty years of it’s independence as we have done. So why don’t you feel proud about all these? Silence prevailed in that room for a next few minutes and the junior who had been slapped was sobbing very badly. It was almost 2am when all the seniors left the room.The next day at 9am on the 61st Independence Day, not a single student was present for the flag hosting ceremony in the college ground. The only people present there were the principal, four lectures and around three peons. The students were busy making arrangements for a cultural program at 10am in the hostel premises followed by a sumptuous lunch. Famous DJ of the town has been called for making the function more attractive. To emphasize the importance of the Independence Day there was a program called “patriotic speech unlimited” by the juniors. It was generally meant to tease the juniors in public.
After the singing program got over, the long awaited “patriotic speech unlimited” program got started. A junior girl brought some written stuff and started reading it out on the stage. The senior boys and girls started teasing her for every line she read. By the time she completed her speech, she was literally crying. Next came the turn of the boy who was slapped the previous night. I could see his eyes which were red; no doubt he has not slept the whole night. Some of his class-mates started murmuring, “what will he speak, he has no preparation. At least he could have written down some stuff on a piece of paper”. If somebody fails to speak properly on “patriotic speech unlimited”, he and his group will be declared unpatriotic. This means they have to practise patriotism by singing the national anthem loudly in front of every senior’s room at 6am before they start any ritual of the day. In the college, if they see seniors in the canteen or corridors, they have to salute and say “Jai Hind”.
The boy started with a very low voice, ” we all can not forget one thing .We are always viewed as Indians no matter how much gum we chew, how much ever expensive car we drive or how much skin we manage to expose. Remember if we do not respect ourselves, no one else will either. We the Indians have been able to safeguard our culture for five thousand years despite innumerable invasions, because we held on firm to some values. Those values are just as relevant today as they were in past. There are people who have nothing good to say about India. They always blame their society and country for their slow growth. Whenever they see their country, they see uncontrolled population, malnourished children, corrupt politicians, illiterate villagers and unemployed youngsters. Moreover, they see India not as an Indian but like an American or European. There is a very simple logic, when we don’t know ourselves, our own abilities, we always get blind with others brightness and start feeling ourselves inferior. What I mean to say is, different people have different prospects to view a particular thing. We have our own problems but there is a lot of achievement at the same time. Things never change over night. The first war for independence started in 1857 and we got independence after ninety years of continuous struggle in 1947. So look at your country as an Indian and you will find that it is the most beautiful, prosperous and happiest place on the earth to live in.
My country, India, is the largest democracy, 2nd largest populous nation and 7th largest in geographical area on the earth. The natural barriers, Himalaya on the North, Bay of Bengal on the east, Indian Ocean on the south and Arabian Sea on the west are safeguarding the home land from invaders. In the indomalaya eco zone as one of the eighteen mega diverse countries, it displays significant biodiversity. It is the birth place of four major religions Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism and Jainism. Mark Twain aptly said, “India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand mother of tradition. Our most valuable and most constructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only”.
For their kind information of those who think that our people are illiterate I would like to inform them the world’s first university was established at Takshashila (now in Bihar) in 700BC. More than 10,500 students from all over the world studied more than 60 subjects here. Sanskrit, the mother of all the European languages and the most suitable language for computer software is born in India. Charaka, the father of

Proud to be an Indian
medicine consolidated Ayurveda 2500 years ago here. Sushruta the father of surgery conducted complicated surgeries including plastic surgery and brain surgery 2600 years ago. The technique of algorithm used in computer science, the science of algebra and trigonometry, the value of pi, the place value and decimal system, the concept of zero all are invented in India. Albert Einstein said it so well, “We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made”. The Vedas, which describe science and technology in a very profound way, were written in India thousand of years ago. When many cultures were only nomadic, forest dwellers over 5000 years ago, Indians established Harappan culture in Sindhu Valley (Indus Valley Civilization).
Not only the ancient India but also the 21st century India is shinning in the world’s map with its extremely talented and revolutionary Indians.
India has the record of publishing largest number of daily news papers (348 daily and 98 non-daily news papers in 15 Indian languages).Indian film industry is the largest in the world.India has the 2nd largest army(11,00000) in the world after china(16,00000).Pakistan is 5th (5,50000) and USA is 6th (4,77,800).India is the 3rd nation in the world to develop land based and sea based cruise missiles.India is the 4th largest in the world in terms of billionaires’ population (by American business publication Forbes it will top the list by 2017).India is the 5th largest economy in the world.India is the 7th nuclear power in the world.
There are four Indians in the list of world’s top ten richest personalities- Lakshmi Mittal (4th), Mukesh Ambani (5th), Anil Ambani (6th) and KB Singh (8th). Some success stories are well known, such as Vinod Khosla, co-founder of Sun Microsystems, and Sabeer Bhatia, who founded Hotmail and sold it to Microsoft for $400 million. The number of New Economy millionaires of Indian descent is now in the thousands. The list of 21st century revolutionary Indians in tech companies are too long to mention here but some of them are Ken Bajaj CEO AppNet, P. Kaul CEO Hughes Network Systems (HNS), Krishna Kushwaha Executive Vice President, Research and Development cybercash, Sanju Bansal co-founder & COO MicroStrategy, Rakesh Gangwal CEO US AirWays, Sanjay Kumar President and COO , computer associates, Srinija Srinivasan – cofounder and Vice President Yahoo, Amar Bose – of the almighty Bose sound systems, Jim Wadia – head of Arthur Andersen and many more.
In spite of all these achievements we are still viewed as inferior, backward and poor people. Forget about foreigners, our own people misinterpret our country in many occasions. We are the victims of our own success. With this last line, suddenly the tears flowed down from his eyes. His voice became low again. All the students were so engrossed in the speech that they lost track of time. Students those who never attended Independence Day or republic day in their whole college life were listening to this boy’s speech in rapt attention. Suddenly one of the seniors started clapping and it was followed by rest of them. Within a minute, the whole atmosphere changed, all the students jumped on to the stage and applauded the boy. It looked as if the boy had his share of revenge in his own way.
I was clapping, sitting in the last row and thinking. Really we are victims of our own success; we have forgotten what we are. Patriotism is not a ritual to practise on the Independence Day or Republic day. It is something that inspires us to take the initiative to change the things which we complain everyday and move forward.

True patriotism can take india to greater heights

Next Post Previous Post

.

INDIA HAS progressed well with a nine per cent GDP for the past five years. This is good achievement. The present global slow down will however also hamper our rate of development. The high inflation will do the maximum damage. Is the development just a result of over saturation of the West or is it due to the efforts of the smart minds of the nation?

The availability of the resources, good skilled workers, cheaply available labor etc. are some of factors that have helped in the nation’s progress. Can this rate of development be sustained? Yes it can be sustained. But for that we need few more leaders like A P J Abdul Kalam, Narayan Murthy etc. But the most important thing which should be focused upon is inculcating in our people a spirit of strong patriotism. Least attention has been paid to this since our independence, and we have paid a big price for this lapse.
We say with pride that majority of the people working in Silicon Valley are Indians. We boast of the things which make no sense in real life. Can you imagine at what height India would have been if there was no brain drain. If only our young men and women after completing their education abroad did not settle there but returned to their land of birth. This zenith we would have witnessed in the early nineties itself. But the lack of patriotic spirit has played spoil spot.

When anyone wanted to work for the nation they were not given the proper encouragement and support. Example Amar Bose, founder of Bose sound systems. The BRIC report prepared by Goldman Sachs regarding the financial condition of Brazil, Russia, India and china have conspicuously specified that Indian politician are going to be great hurdle in the path of development of the nation. This then is the political image of our nation. This is because of the shortsightedness and self-centeredness of the politicians. Now if this scenario has to be changed then the love for the nation is to be taught to the future generation right from there childhood.

Today condition is that the things within the four wall of the house belong to the individual, and anything outside is government’s property meant for destroying. Mind you do we ever think if government really benefits from this attitude. It is our own money which we pay to the government in the form of tax. The public property is our own property which should be taken care of as we take care of our own home and belongings. Indians must start feel that the nation belongs to them. We should not only feel patriotic on 26th January and 15th August.

We must not appreciate movies like Rang the Basanti and leave the theatre in protest. The youth must feel for the nation and work to uplift the nation. It is now or never. If we truly want India to become a Super Power by 2020 then we must get united and work for it. If do not do so our dreams will only remain a dreams. This failure will weigh heavy on every Indian’s conscience.

All the best youngsters..!!

VIVEKANANDA ON : PATRIOTISM

Next Post Previous Post

.

They talk of patriotism. I believe in patriotism, and I also have
my own ideal of patriotism. Three things are necessary for great achieve-
ments : First, feel from the heart. What is in the intellect or reason?
It goes a few steps nad there it stops. But through the heart comes insp-
iration.Love opens the most impossible gates; love is the gates to all
the secrets in the universe. Feel, therefore, my would-be reformers, my
would-be patriots! Do you feel? Do you feel that the millions and millions
of the descendants of gods and of sages have become next-door neighbous to
brutes? Do you feel that millions have been starving today, and millions
have been starving for ages? Do you feel that ignorance has come over the
land as a dark crowd? Does it make you restless? Does it make you sleepless?
Has it gone over your blood, coursing through your veins, becoming consona-
nant with your heart-beats? Has it made you almost mad? Are you seized with
the one idea of misery and ruin, and have you forgotten all about your name,
your fame, your wives, your children, your property, even your own bodies?
Have you done tht? This is the first step to become a patriot, the very
first step.......

You may feel, then; but instead of spending your energies on frothy
talk, have you found any way out, any practical solution, some help instead
of condemnation, some sweet words to soothe their miseries, to bring them
out of this living death?

Yet that is not all. Have you got the will to surmount mountain-
high obstructions? If the whole world stands against you sword in hand,
would you still dare to do what you think is right? If your wives and
children are against you, if all your money goes, your name dies, your
wealth vanishes, would you still stick to it? Would you still pursue it
and go on steadily towards your own goal? As the great King Bhartehari
says (Niti-sataka, verse 74) :

Nindantu nitinpunah yadi va stuvantu
Laksmih samavisatu gacchatu va yathestam;
Adyaiva va maranamastu yugantare va
Nyayyat pathat pravicalanti padam na dhirah-

"Let the sages blame or let them praise; let the goddess of fortune
come or let her go wherever she likes; let death come today, or let it come
after millions of years; he indeed is the steady man who does not move one
inch from the way of truth."

Have you got that steadfastness? If you have these three things,
each one of you will make miracles.
