A donkey was tied to a tree. One night a ghost cut the rope and released the donkey free.
The donkey went and destroyed the crops in an adjacent farmer's land. Infuriated, the farmer's wife shot the donkey and killed it.
The donkey's owner was devastated at the loss.
In reply, he shot dead the farmer's wife.
Angered by his wife's death, the farmer took a sickle and killed the donkey's owner.
The wife of the donkey's owner got so angry that she and her sons set the farmer's house on fire.
The farmer, looking at his house turned into ashes, killed the wife & children of the donkey's owner.
Finally, when the farmer was full of regret, he asked the ghost as to why did it kill them all?
Ghost replied, "I killed nobody. I just released a donkey that was tied to a rope.
It is all of you who released the devils within you which resulted into everything bad that occurred thereafter."
Today's media is like that ghost. It keeps releasing donkeys on a daily basis.
People react & argue with each other, hurt each other, without having second thought.
In the end, media dodges all responsibilities. So, it's our responsibility 2 not react on every donkey released by the media &preserve our relationship with our friends, relatives & community.

स्कन्द पुराण में एक अद्भुत श्लोक है।

अश्वत्थमेकम् पिचुमन्दमेकम्
न्यग्रोधमेकम् दश चिञ्चिणीकान् ।
पञ्चाऽऽम्रमुप्त्वा नरकन्न पश्येत्।।
अश्वत्थः = पिपल*
*पिचुमन्दः = नीम*
*न्यग्रोधः = वट वृक्ष*
*चिञ्चिणी = इमली*
*कपित्थः = कविट*
*बिल्वः = बेल*
*आमलकः = आवला*
*आम्रः = आम*
*(उप्ति = पौधा लगाना)*

अर्थात- जो कोई इन वृक्षों के पौधो का रोपण करेगा, उनकी देखभाल करेगा उसे नरक के दर्शन नही करना पड़ेंगे।
इस सीख का अनुसरण न करने के कारण हमें आज इस परिस्थिति के स्वरूप में नरक के दर्शन हो रहे हैं।
अभी भी कुछ बिगड़ा नही है, हम अभी भी अपनी गलती सुधार सकते हैं।

गुलमोहर, निलगिरी, जैसे वृक्ष अपने देश के पर्यावरण के लिए घातक हैं।

Here's the real story of Isro 'spy' case that rocked the nation in 1990s
Rs-50-lakh award 2 former ISRO scientist S. Nambi Narayanan for being “unnecessarily arrested & harassed” by Kerala police will go some distance in providing a closure to the so-called ‘ISRO spy case’.
There will probably never be a real closure – there are too many loose ends to the case that rocked India in the mid-1990s.
It began with the arrest of Maldivian woman, Mariam Rashida, in Oct 1994, on charges of overstaying her visa that led to the surprise arrests of Narayanan,
the director of cryogenic project lab of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), his deputy and several other persons.
The story emerges from the murky confluence of two separate underground streams. The first was Narayanan’s connection to the cryogenic engine project at ISRO.

Very Well Written..

100% factual aspects are brought out in this text. Circulate this to as many people as you can...

*Dear CJI* & fellow Justices of Supreme Court of India,

1. A party Wins Lok Sabha elections, gets 303 seats with massive 46% vote share.

2. Then it wins state after state to get majority in Rajya Sabha.

3. It passes Kisan Bills in both the Houses, gets President's approval & the Bills become Laws.

4. Some 20-25 K of 1 state sits on road for a month, then you stay the LAWs.
5. What a mockery of the democratic process..!!!

6. Where are our protectors of democracy now ?? Those who were screaming that democracy is being murdered, not so long ago ??

7. The Supreme Court today said, "We are trying to solve the problem in accordance with the Law."

I heard a very interesting analogy today,
A 10 floor building did not have a lift, so people had problem climbing up and down. Specially the elderly and the kids, so the society started exploring options.
Finally they got some donkeys, who could carry people up and down.
The donkey owners would charge people for carrying them up and down for a fee and would also pay 10% to the society from the revenue they earned. It was a very happy situation for all involved.
After sometime the society management changed.
the new management decided to install a lift for carrying people up &down.
All hell broke loose everyone started protesting, this is not fair, society will loose revenue, donkey owners will be jobless and no food for them (human rights issue), donkeys will be worthless

Death of the Muslim PM of India


*…and meanwhile wondering how come there are more farmers protesting on social media than on the streets, here are a few point of views, a few stray thoughts & a few random observations (all my own work) :*
*That it's been such a tumultuous week for Bharatvarsha, that our first defacto Muslim PM died & very few noticed.*

*Muslim PM?*

Yup, the 90s saw the rise of a certain Ahmedbhai Mohammedbhai Patel - a shifty-eyed & a shifty-morals MP from Gujarat...
who'd cunningly realized that with his dishonest visage, he could never become the poster boy of Congress & hence moved to the proverbial backroom. But all that almost ended with Rajiv Baba's assassination...

```👉In April 2013, Punjab government passed the Punjab Contract Farming Act to provide a legal framework to contract farming. The Punjab Act did not have a provision mandating that sale cannot be below the MSP. 14 states already allowed contract farming before Farms Bills.
Then why are Punjab farmers protesting now?

👉The problem is not MSP its the Inter state purchase and sales that can now be made bypassing Mandis...
That's what changed.And MSPs only cover few produce. Even Milk is not under MSP, neither are fruits and vegetables.
👉This farmers agitation is manipulated by the "Adhatis ( Money lenders)" who will stand to lose Rs 2000 crore per year during wheat & paddy procurement season. Centre's FarmLaws have rendered them irrelevant as farmers are free from the clutches. Biggies in Punjab are rattled.
