Kishanganj, October 29: Vishwa Mangal Gou Gram Yatra received grand welcome in Kishanganj by the local people including a large number of Vanvasis. Beginning from Bhagalpur the Yatra reached Kishanganj passing through Navagachhiyan, Katihar and Purnia.

The presence of local Vanvasis at the welcome meeting in Kishanganj impressed all. All the Vanvasis had come with their traditional bows and arrows and they resolved for cow protection. These Vanvasis had reached Kishanganj even one day before the function, as they had to walk kilometers to reach the venue. The Vanvasi women welcomed the gourath with intense sticks and garlands and also washed the feet of the saints.

Addressing the gathering national secretary of the yatra Shri Shankarlal said cow is not a burden for anybody rather she is useful for everyone. He said a total of 108 types of diseases could be cured with cow urine and dung. Highlighting the usefulness of the Indian cow he appealed to the people to stop herding cross-breed cows and herd only the Indian breed of cow. He thanked the Vanvasis for welcoming the yatra with so much enthusiasm and said it is the duty of everyone to protect the cow. He said the govansh is at the verge of extinction today only due to the politics of vote bank. He said if the common man stands with firm resolve even the power hungry politicians and the government would be forced to protect the cow.

Rajrishi Ramnayan Das said the protection of the cow and the village is must in the age of consumerism and materialism as both the village and the cows are highly useful for the human beings. He said if we have to see true Indian culture we must see the villages. He said nothing is more important for village protection and prosperity than the gopalan.

Kozhikode: After the successful implementation of ‘Love Jihad’in Kerala, Jihadi organisations in Kerala had reportedl started ‘Clinical Jihad’.

Jihadis are known for their vicious, inhuman and devilish methods in annihilating Kafirs. Beheading, stoning, burning alive, and homicide bombing are the usual methods of Jihad
is. Now the Jihadi dogs of hate have come up with new techniques to slaughter innocent kafirs with the assistance of Jihadi young doctors.

As per some shocking report from Malabar, Kozhikode based Jihadi organisation who is now under Police scanner had implemented ‘Clinical Jihad’.Presence of Jihadi organisations in Medical colleges were already rported and now the very same people have identified and recruited Jihadi doctors with clear instructions to prescribe wrong medicines to naive Non Muslim patients.They are also instructed to prescribe costly medicines to empty their pocket.

When ‘Love Jihad’ was reported early our Secular readers had dubbed it as a ‘Sangh Pariwar’ agenda and now thanks to timely intervention of Judiciary more and more people now
appeciate the vigilance of Hindu organisations in helping to expose the evil vicious Jihadi agenda.

Considering the secular nature of our soceity we are very sure that it will take time for them to acknowledge this early warning.We advice Hindu brothers and sisters to be vigilant
while taking medicines prescribed by any Jihadi doctor.

An inspiring story

We still have a few good human beings around who are doing some yeoman service without expecting anything in return….
God Bless Such Souls !!!!!
‘I don’t feed beggars. They can look after themselves. The mentally ill won’t ask anyone for food or money,’ says N Krishnan who has been feeding them thrice a day for the past seven years.
For more information on N Krishnan’s trust, log on to: http://www.akshayatrust.org/

Left 5-star job to feed the mentally ill
N Krishnan feeds 400 mentally ill people on the streets of Madurai three times a day, every day, all 365 days of the year.
The 28 year old has been doing this for seven years via a charity called the Akshaya Trust.

A look into the kitchen reveals a spotlessly clean room.. Sparkling vessels stacked neatly, groceries and provisions all lined up in rows — rice, dal, vegetables, spices — all of the best quality. One would think this was the kitchen of a five star hotel.

Maybe Krishnan achieves that effect because he was once a chef at a five star hotel in Bengaluru.
“Today’s lunch is curd rice, with home made pickle, please taste it,” he says, serving me on a plate made of dried leaves.
The food is excellent.
“I change the menu for different days of the week. They will get bored if I serve the same food every day,” he says with an enthusiastic and infectious smile.

“I change the menu for different days of the week. They will get bored if I serve the same food every day,” he says with an enthusiastic and infectious smile.

Past 7 years
As we returned, a startling fact hit me. Not a single mentally challenged person had thanked Krishnan. They did not even smile or acknowledge him. Still Krishnan carried on in a world where most of us get offended if someone doesn’t say thank you, sometimes even for doing our jobs.

The food costs Rs 8,000 a day, but that doesn’t worry him. “I have donors for 22 days. The remaining days, I manage myself. I am sure I will get donors for that too, people who can afford it are generally generous, particularly when they know that their hard earned money is actually going to the poor. That is why I maintain my accounts correctly and scrupulously.”
He then pulled out a bill from the cabinet and showed it to me. It was a bill for groceries he had bought seven years ago. “This bill has sentimental value. It is the first one after I started Akshaya.”

The economic slowdown has resulted in a drop in the number of donors. Earlier, they sustained meals for 25 days.
Software giants Infosys and TCS were so impressed with his work that they donated three acres of land to him in Madurai . Krishnan hopes to build a home for his wards there. He has built the basement for a woman’s block which will house 80 inmates, but work has currently halted due to a lack of funds.

Lashkar men waiting to strike india

http://news.rediff.com/report/2009/oct/01/lashkar-men-waiting-to-strike-india-ib.htm

With the foreign media reporting a continued Lashkar-e-Tayiba [ Images ] threat to India, Indian intelligence agencies say that this dreaded outfit has at least 1,800 men on standby all set to enter into India and spread terror.
Intelligence Bureau sources told rediff.com that the reports coming in from foreign intelligence agencies were correct and the Lashkar in fact has regrouped in the past year, after it was bogged down following the Mumbai terror attacks [ Images ] last year.
The IB report on the Lashkar suggests that at least 600 terrorists have been kept on standby along the Line of Control [ Images ] and are awaiting orders to enter India. The rest are still in the Lashkar camps in Pakistan ready to follow suit.
The IB says that the Lashkar, since the past couple of months, has been on a recruiting spree and Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence too has been playing a vital role in helping the recruitment process. The arrest of the top leaders by the Pakistan government had lowered the outfit’s morale. However, the Lashkar has been quick to regroup and commence its recruitment process.
The IB says that the Lashkar has increased its attacks recently in the Kashmir [ Images ] Valley. These incidents are only aimed at infiltrating and also testing the strength of the outfit. Moreover, they also need to show that they are still interested in Kashmir — while the actual intention is to spread mayhem in India.
How they regrouped
IB sources, who have submitted a report to the home ministry, the Lashkar regrouped with the help of various other outfits. Since there was a lot of pressure on the Pakistan administration to crack down on the outfit, it was not easy to do things as openly as they used to do before.
Since the Mumbai attacks, both the United States and the Indian agencies have been keeping a close watch. The US agencies were more worried about Lashkar teaming up with Al Qaeda [ Images ].
The ISI has advised all terror outfits operating out of Pakistan to work as one. Their training centres are the same and the training programme is the same. During this time, when the Lashkar was under scrutiny, it was the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen [ Images ], Jaish-e- Mohammad and the Hizbul Mujahideen recruiting on behalf of the Lashkar.
IB sources say that there has been a drastic change in policy and all these outfits have started to share a common ideology so that a common recruiting ground could be set up.
Thanks to this change in strategy all these outfits put together have nearly 15,000 members of which 1,800 have been kept ready to strike India. It is said that the Lashkar is desperate to show its strength and hence the outfit is getting desperate to carry out a major strike in India.

Genetics Deliver Another Blow to Battered Aryan-Dravidian Theory

Genetics Deliver Another Blow to Battered Aryan-Dravidian Theory
Source: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/news/india/Aryan-Dravidian-divide-a-myth-Study/articleshow/5053274.cms
HYDERABAD, INDIA, September 25, 2009: The great Indian divide along north-south lines now stands even more blurred. A pathbreaking study by Harvard and indigenous researchers on ancestral Indian populations says there is a genetic relationship between all Indians and more importantly, the hitherto believed theory that Aryans and Dravidians signify the ancestry of north and south Indians might after all, be a myth.

“This paper rewrites history… there is no north-south divide,” said Lalji Singh, former director of the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) and a co-author of the study.

Senior CCMB scientist Kumarasamy Thangarajan said there was no truth to the Aryan-Dravidian theory as they came hundreds or thousands of years after the ancestral north and south Indians had settled in India.

The study analysed 500,000 genetic markers across the genomes of 132 individuals from 25 diverse groups from 13 states. All the individuals were from six-language families and traditionally diverse castes and tribal groups. “The genetics proves that castes grew directly out of tribe-like organizations during the formation of the Indian society,” said Thangarajan, who noted that it was impossible to distinguish between castes and tribes since their genetics proved they were not systematically different.

The study was conducted by CCMB scientists in collaboration with researchers at Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Public Health and the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT. It reveals that the present-day Indian population is a mix of ancient north and south bearing the genomic contributions from two distinct ancestral populations – the Ancestral North Indian (ANI) and the Ancestral South Indian (ASI) — both indigenous to the sucontinent.

“The initial settlement took place 65,000 years ago in the Andamans and in ancient south India around the same time, which led to population growth in this part,” said Thangarajan. He added, “At a later stage, 40,000 years ago, the ancient north Indians emerged which in turn led to rise in numbers here. But at some point of time, the ancient north and the ancient south mixed, giving birth to a different set of population. And that is the population which exists now.”

This finding could challenge the prevailing view of a northern route of migration of man out of Africa via Middle East, Europe, south-east Asia, Australia and then to India.

No state money for churches : Andhra highcourt

No state money for churches

By By Our Correspondent (Deccan Chronicle)
Oct 06 2009
Hyderabad
Oct. 5:

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Monday made it clear that no government money can be spent to construct or repair churches and other Christian religious institutions in the state in pursuance of the GO Ms. No. 42, issued on December 19, 2001.
A division bench comprising Chief Justice Anil R. Dave and Justice C.V. Nagarjuna Reddy was dealing with a writ petition filed by one Dr Tripuraneni Hanuman Chowdary complaining that the state government was promoting a religion contrary to injunctions of the Constitution. The bench was clarifying its earlier orders of status quo in this regard.
The petitioner listed the various orders issued between December 2001 and March 2009 and complained that the state under the guise of welfare of SCs and STs was “promoting religious activity relating to Christians”.
The court had ordered on September 7 to maintain status quo on release of funds under the GO for maintenance, repair and construction of churches.
When the case came up for hearing, the counsel for the petitioner, Mr Challa Kodanda Ram, complained that the words status quo were being misinterpreted by the officers. The bench then said there shall be no spending of government money in pursuance to the various GOs issued by the government.
