#MGNREGA To give birth to a scheme in UPA period , no doubt. But there was mess, and it was poorly utilized, leading to even CAG’s report, mentioning as to how the people who should have got it did not get it.…
UPA govt did not even have the actual numbers of farmers or workers who got enrolled on demand.…
In 2009-10 Budgeted Estimate (BE) was Rs. 39,100 crore; Revised Estimate (RE) was also Rs. 39,100 crore.
But the actual number, which was actually spent, was only Rs. 33,539 crore.
Now, similarly, for 2010-11, 2011-12, the numbers. Rs. 40,100 crore BE; Rs. 40,100 crore RE. But UPA govt actually spent Rs. 35,841 crore. Down;

In 2011-12 - BE of 40,000 crore again down to Actual use of 29,000 crore ;
in 2012-13, 33,000 crore down to 30,000 cr;
In 2013-14, BE of 33,000 cr down to 32,000 cr

Then in 2014- 15, 34 down to 32. Every year, it is lesser and lesser and lesser. In BE, UPA govt claim that they have given that much, and actually no utilization happens.
After Narendra Modi, took charge in 2014, is that BJP govt removed all the ills out of that Scheme, and utilized it effectively, which the data proves. Now Modi govt, in 2015-16, BE vs Actuals- 34,000 cr Budgeted is 37,000 cr in actual utilization;
In 2016-17, allocated BE was Rs.38,500 crore, Rs.48,214 crore were utilized. .
In 2017-18, BE was Rs.48,000 crore and utilization was Rs.55,000 crore.
In 2018-19, allocated BE was Rs.55,000 crore and funds utilized were Rs.61,815 crore
In 2019-20, Rs. 60,000 crores becomes Rs. 71,686 crores in actual utilization. In 2020-21, which is the year of the Pandemic, Rs. 61,500 crore is the amount that this govt gave, prior to the Covid coming in February, 2020 Budget; (1,500 more than the BE of the previous year).
But because during the Covid period this govt had to come in with greater help, went on giving, through the Supplementary Demands and so on, Rs. 1,11,500 crore and, as of now, the actual utilization is Rs.90,469 crores, the HIGHEST EVER !
Now coming to this year's provision, Rs. 61,500 crores was February, 2020, just prior to Covid. Now, Rs. 73,000 crores is given in this BE, which is higher than the BE last year, having in-between provided during the pandemic for MGNREGA.
MGNREGA has greater provisions in actual numbers during Modi govt time and effectively using it. Ownership alone doesn't gum in, but come, talk the details, talk the facts.
Delivery and performance in terms of the last mile connectivity is where this govt have distinctly shown even on some instruments which previous govt have created.
So while INC govt take the credit for MGNREGA, INC should equally take the credit for having mismanaged MGNREGA, take the credit for C&AG paragraphs on MGNREGA, take the credit for having given MGNREGA to ghost workers, take the credit for MGNREGA going to non-existing workers.
Figures above are from Budget speech in RS made by FM Smt.Nirmala Sitharaman - 13-Feb 2021. #MGNREGA

Interesting from First Sanskrit Commission Report. The Commission was appointed by the Government of India in 1956 with Dr. Suniti Kumar Chatterji as its chairman. Seven other scholars of repute from various parts of the country were members.
Some may criticize that the kings and thepriests had their own motives, i.e. dominating the others in society in promoting Sanskrit.But the Sanskrit Commission’s report makes it clear that even Muslims and Christians in certain parts of the country actively participated
in the learning of Sanskrit. Nor was it the case that the Brahmin community alone was learning and preserving Sanskrit.Cutting across the barriers of caste and religion, Sanskrit was embraced by all people in India. Neither was gender a barrier in learning Sanskrit.

Brguvalli of Taittriya Upanisad reflected in Appar's Tevaram.

The Tattriya Upanisad Vedic passage (annam anne pratisthitam.. ) is extolling Food, Land, Water, Body , Lives etc. Appar's Tevaram on Sivaperuman has one song in which these ideas are mentioned together.
பார் அவன் காண்; பார் அதனில் பயிர் ஆனான் காண்
பயிர் வளர்க்கும் துளி அவன் காண் ; துளியில் நின்ற ,
நீர் அவன் காண் ; நீர் சடைமேலுடைய நிகழ்வித்தான் காண்
நிலவேந்தர் பரிசாக நினை உற்று ஓங்கும்
பேர் அவன் காண்;
பிறை எயிற்று வெள்ளைப் பன்றிப்
பிரியாது பலநாளும் வழிபட்டு ஏத்தும்
சீர் அவன் காண் ; சீருடைய தேவர்க்கு எல்லாம்
சிவன் அவன் காண் சிவபுரத்து எம் செல்வன்தானே 6.87.6

Thanks: Thillai Karthikeyasivam Sivam…
பொதுவாக தமிழகத்தில் திருமணமுறைகள் பல உள்ளன.ஒவ்வொரு மரபுக்கும், ஒவ்வொரு ஜாதிக்கும் தனித்தனி சம்பிரதாய முறைகள், மந்திரங்கள் உள்ளன.பல முறைகள் இருந்தாலும் இந்த திருமணங்கள் அனைத்தும் வைதீகதிருமணம் என்றே அழைக்கப்படும்.
வைதீக திருமணம் என்பதால் எல்லாமே பிராமணர்கள் செய்துவைக்கும் திருமணம் என்று நினைக்கக்கூடாது.ஈரோடு ராமசாமி காலத்திற்க்கு முன்பிருந்தே, தங்கள்
மரபு பெரியவர்களை வைத்து திருமணம் செய்துக்கொள்ளும் வகையினர் பலர் உள்ளனர்.
