Hi dear ones,

Its been a very long time since I have posted anything. I was looking for something different to post. And suddenly this thought provoking thought popped up (which is a small questionnaire for me and us too).

We spend few minutes to few hours of our daily time surfing the internet, in anyway.

So what does it make us ? are we losing our Identity  OR creating our Identity ?

Are we trying to make our presence felt?

Are we addressing the social, cultural, economical,technological, environmental issues?

Are we : hiding from our problems OR looking for solutions to our problems?

This made me compile the following.

NETIZEN

The term Netizen is a portmanteau of the English words internet and citizen. It is defined as an entity or person actively involved in online communities and a user of the internet, especially an avid one.Netizens are also commonly referred to as cybercitizens, which has the same meaning.

WE  physically live in one country but are in contact with much of the world via the global computer network the mighty INTERNET. Virtually we live next door to every other single Netizen (how smartly I made myself the netizen, sheer brilliance !! ) in the world. Geographical separation is replaced by existence in the same virtual space. We are interconnected Islands.

Social connections which never before were possible, or relatively hard to achieve, are now facilitated by the Net. Geography and time are no longer boundaries. Social limitations and conventions no longer prevent potential friendships or partnerships. In this manner Netizens are meeting other Netizens from far-away and close by that they might never have met without the Net.

Netizens make it a point to be helpful and friendly – if they

feel it to be worthwhile. Many Netizens feel they have an

obligation to be helpful and answer queries and followup on

discussions to put their opinion into the pot of opinions. Over a

period of time the voluntary contributions to the Net have built

it into a useful connection to other people around the world.

Responsibility of a NETIZEN:

THE Internet’s users, who use and know most about it, have a responsibility to ensure that it  is used constructively while also fostering free speech and open access And to help make the Net both an intellectual and a social resource.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GLOBAL CITIZEN:

In research for this topic the two themes which came up most often were mobility and global awareness.

The global citizens are more likely to travel often and live in different places. And for that matter speak more than one language. This is mobility.

The global citizens think beyond national boundaries and understand what’s going on in the rest of the world and their implications. This is linked to a growing feeling of caring about what happens in other places and feeling responsible towards other people, wherever they are. Global Citizens understand the need to tackle injustice and inequality, and having the desire and ability to work actively to do so.

IT is important to recognize we are not just citizens of our respective countries, but citizens in a larger global community. I feel, today’s world needs global citizens, the ones who think beyond themselves and believe in reaching out.

Now NETIZENS & GLOBAL CITIZEN hve these things in common:

Both have an understanding of how the world works economically, politically, socially, culturally, technologically and environmentally.

words of WISDOM:

Broaden your vision, yet narrow your focus. In a global environment, think globally and act locally.

problems can turn into action only by considering ecological, economic, and cultural differences of our local surroundings.

After said thus, I think I am really confused whether I have come up with the answers to my questions OR I have become more confused.

 Don’t Judge ME !!!

Hi dear ones,

Many of you must have heard of “”Lokpal Bill”” and ongoing debates on national and regional news channels.

But very few know whats actually it is (even i was one of these ignorants) .

So I Googled it and came up with the best answer (in my opinion).

As seen below its not ONLY about corruption !!!!

Actually its a comparison of the proposed Bill and Passed bill (by Government of India).

Hope it will enlighten you as it did to me on this issue.

Existing System

System Proposed by civil society

No politician or senior officer ever goes to jail despite huge evidence because Anti Corruption Branch (ACB) and CBI directly come under the government. Before starting investigation or initiating prosecution in any case, they have to take permission from the same bosses, against whom the case has to be investigated. Lokpal at centre and Lokayukta at state level will be independent bodies. ACB and CBI will be merged into these bodies. They will have power to initiate investigations and prosecution against any officer or politician without needing anyoneⳠpermission. Investigation should be completed within 1 year and trial to get over in next 1 year. Within two years, the corrupt should go to jail.
No corrupt officer is dismissed from the job because Central Vigilance Commission, which is supposed to dismiss corrupt officers, is only an advisory body. Whenever it advises government to dismiss any senior corrupt officer, its advice is never implemented. Lokpal and Lokayukta will have complete powers to order dismissal of a corrupt officer. CVC and all departmental vigilance will be merged into Lokpal and state vigilance will be merged into Lokayukta.
No action is taken against corrupt judges because permission is required from the Chief Justice of India to even register an FIR against corrupt judges. Lokpal & Lokayukta shall have powers to investigate and prosecute any judge without needing anyoneⳠpermission.
Nowhere to go – People expose corruption but no action is taken on their complaints. Lokpal & Lokayukta will have to enquire into and hear every complaint.
There is so much corruption within CBI and vigilance departments. Their functioning is so secret that it encourages corruption within these agencies. All investigations in Lokpal & Lokayukta shall be transparent. After completion of investigation, all case records shall be open to public. Complaint against any staff of Lokpal & Lokayukta shall be enquired and punishment announced within two months.
Weak and corrupt people are appointed as heads of anti-corruption agencies. Politicians will have absolutely no say in selections of Chairperson and members of Lokpal & Lokayukta. Selections will take place through a transparent and public participatory process.
Citizens face harassment in government offices. Sometimes they are forced to pay bribes. One can only complaint to senior officers. No action is taken on complaints because senior officers also get their cut. Lokpal & Lokayukta will get public grievances resolved in time bound manner, impose a penalty of Rs 250 per day of delay to be deducted from the salary of guilty officer and award that amount as compensation to the aggrieved citizen.
Nothing in law to recover ill gotten wealth. A corrupt person can come out of jail and enjoy that money. Loss caused to the government due to corruption will be recovered from all accused.
Small punishment for corruption- Punishment for corruption is minimum 6 months and maximum 7 years. Enhanced punishment - The punishment would be minimum 5 years and maximum of life imprisonment.

What is needed is

 

BECAUSE

And we DO NOT want to  SAY or the WORLD to KNOW that

Hi dear ones,

I am always called “SCEPTICAL = A person who doubts accepted (not established) opinions “; that means I always try to look at the  other side of the frame also.

So when I read & saw the news with headlines like -

‘ Demise of  25 Paise coin’,

‘ 25 Paise coin to vanish ‘,

’25 paise coin to biscontinue’,

’25 paise coin to be History’

I was shocked !!!

You may ask why? I also asked myself why r u shocked Mr. koltey? When was the last time you bought something for 25 paise ?

Yesssssssss !! it was a long time ago !!

Here are some points i have taken out for you -

India has been one of the earliest issuers of coins in the world since the 6th Century BC.

India introduced distinctive coins on August 15, 1950. Indian coins are known for their diversity in terms of minting techniques, motifs, sizes, shapes and metals used.

The 25 paise coin was introduced in 1957 when RBI switched over to the decimal system from the Anna system. In 1988, stainless steel coins of 25 paise denomination were issued for the first time.

When was the last time you saw 25 paise coins or you have done any transaction using 25 paise coins?

Govt gives following reasons  to make 25 Paise obsolete:

Due to increase in prices of all commodities 25 paise has become irrelevant.

Rise in metal prices and a drastic fall in usage are said to be the reasons for discontinuing the lower denominated coins

Does it affect our national economy? As well as our personal pockets?

  • If something costs Rs.1.25, it now has to round up to either 1:00 or 1:50. I am wondering who is going to take the burden for that “missing” 25 paisa. I know very little about economics but isn’t it somehow going to affect the sales tax? Why UK & USA or Developed Countries for that matter are so serious about returning even a penny for a purchase, although there is almost no value of a penny as it is.
  • Well all the price set by the government in India are not an absolute round figure, for example petrol prices in India costs 66.32. Please note the 32 paise; do we have 1 paisa or 5 paise or 10 paise coins in use in India?No!!

Then why are these prices in paise? If anyone gets 1 ltr petrol he will pay 64 rupees and not an absolute 66.32 as the price is, this money will then eventually come to government, which will smartly take away the 68 paise and leave 66.32 in the account,.

So who is pocketing these 68 Paise???

  • If government is phasing out 25 paise means, govt is sure that there will be no reduction in prices of everything and this is really a bad sign. Govt might have thought, now a days the cost is growing and will never come down, then who will use 25 paise? Let’s phase out 25 paise and concentrate on increasing the cost of everything. Already the fuel prize is high from 20-25Rs to 70Rs!!!!!!!! And govt will never bring it back to the old price……….
  • WE HAVE BECOME AN IRRESPONSIBLE NATION This is a nation of atrocious behavior and policy. On what basis did reserve bank decided to do away with 25paise coin. They must realize the India is a trillion dollar economy but Indians are still dying of hunger and malnutrition. The examples of Rickshaw puller and state transport bus tickets are there and 1000s of such examples are there. This country is fast being thrown to dogs.

India is rich Indians are not.

hi dear ones,

Following is the dark reality of the INDIA.

A red-light district is a part of an urban area where there is a concentration of prostitution and sex-oriented businesses.

Causes of prostitution:

· Ill treatment by parents.

· Bad company.

· Family prostitutes.

· Social customs.

· Inability to arrange marriage,

· Lack of sex education, media.

· Prior incest and rape.

· Early marriage and desertion.

· Lack of recreational facilities, ignorance, and acceptance of prostitution.

· Economic causes include poverty and economic distress.

· Psychological causes include desire for physical pleasure, greed, and dejection.

Notorious red light districts of India include GB Road in Delhi, Sonagachi in Kolkata, Kamathipura in Mumbai, Budhwar Peth in Pune and Reshampura in Gwalior.

There are around 2.8 million prostitutes in the country and their number is increasing, as informed by Lok Sabha. Most of the girls are brought from Nepal and Bangladesh.

”Young girls are trafficked from Nepal to brothels in Mumbai and Kolkata at an average age of twelve. They are trapped into the vicious cycle of prostitution, debt and slavery. By the time they are in their mid-twenties, they are at the dead end”.

In modern India different kinds of prostitution is prevailing apart from prostitutes in brothel there are:

· Street prostitutes

· Bar dancers

· Call girls

· Religious prostitutes

· Escort girls

· Road side brothel

· Child prostitutes

· Gimmick prostitutes

· Beat prostitutes

Steps that should be taken in order to fight with prostitution:
# Formal education should be made available to those victims who are still within the school going age, while non-formal education should be made accessible to adults
# The Central and State Governments in partnership with non-governmental organizations should provide gender sensitive market driven vocational training to all those rescued victims who are not interested in education
# Rehabilitation and reintegration of rescued victims being a long-term Recruitment of adequate number of trained counselors and social workers in institutions/homes run by the government independently or in collaboration with non-governmental organizations
# Awareness generation and legal literacy on economic rights, particularly for women and adolescent girls should be taken up.
# Adequate publicity, through print and electronic media including child lines and women help lines about the problem of those who have been forced into prostitution.
# Culturally sanctioned practices like the system of devadasis, jogins, bhavins, etc. which provides a pretext for prostitution should be addressed suitably.

Can legalizing of Prostitution be a solution?


Some people opine that prostitution shall be made legal in India and accept them as a part of society because the problem of prostitution is inevitable.

The benefit of legalizing prostitution in India will be that at least we will have a track record of Sexworkers. And give access to medical facilities, which can control the spread of AIDS.

Benefits of legalizing prostitution are:

Legalization of prostitution and the sex industry will stop sex trafficking.
Legalization of prostitution will control the sex industry.
Legalization of prostitution will decrease hidden, illegal and street prostitution.
Legalization of prostitution will protect the women by giving them certain rights.
Women in systems of Prostitution want the sex industry legalized as they are the one who suffers the most as they don’t have any rights.
Legalization of prostitution will promote women’s health as they can have easy access to medical facilities which they don’t have when it is illegal.
Recognizing prostitution as an economic activity, thus enabling women in India to obtain working permits as “sex workers”.

hi dear ones,

Be cautios, you are being watched by them, they will gather around you, theirs is very lesser demand !!!

The basic amenities –Food, Shelter, education, unemployment, health and judicial services to the people in the country have been paralyzed by the political leadership.

And this may be the one of the problems behind increasing number of beggars.

 

Associated with the problems of poverty and unemployment is the problem of beggary which is a social as well as Economic problem of great magnitude and grave concern in INDIA. Begging is a problem for all classes as well as for the masses!!!

It is common to find beggars at rubbish dumps, road sides, temples, traffic lights and under flyovers. As well as important monuments, railway stations, religious and spiritual sites, and shopping places.

The majority of beggars see it as a profitable and effortless and viable profession. Begging has been an accepted way of life in India. Giving alms (Daan) to the needy was built into the social fabric of India and is thought as a good cause/Deed (Punya) (since feeding/helping the poor & needy makes good way for heaven).

We need an effective plan to address this socio-economic issue and curb it (if not completely eliminate it). India as a nation needs to think for its begging population. With the nation aspiring to become world leader in every field; socio-economic measures are needed to curb the begging problem in India.

Dear friends,

 It is with great sorrow that I am writing this blog.

MY GREATEST SYMPATHIES AND CONDOLENCES TO ALL TSUNAMI HIT PEOPLE.

All of you have lost something to this Natural Calamity.

Somethings in life are un-avoidable Or had to happen kind of; So we must face them with HOPE  &  COURAGE.

Here are some sayings from the much respected and very Holy Shri Bhagvad Gita.

  •  Life is infinite. Life is immortal.
  • Do your duty. Do not waver. Be not faint-hearted.
  • Even if we consider birth and death to be real (which they are, as impressions in the mind), even then we should have no sorrow because:  “Death  is  certain  for  the  born.  Rebirth  is  certain  for  the  dead.  You should  not  grieve  for  what  is  unavoidable.”

I WILL PRAY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE LOST SOMETHING TO THIS DISASTER.

AND  I HOPE THEY WILL RISE AGAIN JUST LIKE PHOENIX DO !!

SCAMS & SCANDALS

Hi dear ones,

FROM the land of SCAMS and SCANDALS

I am writing this with greatest sadness that India has become the land of scams and scandals.

Why I am saying so?

If you are an Indian your question will make me laugh; if you are non-Indian then it will be shameful for me.

Every country, every nation has its share of scams and scandals then why I am so worried about INDIA !?

Because

Ø       Its my country.

Ø       I feel cheated by the leaders I chose.

Ø       I feel disappointed that we failed to give nice and efficient system.

Ø       I feel image of my country is being damaged by these.

Ø       I feel with every scam and scandal, money we pay in taxes is used not for development but for severe criminal act as cheating the country.

Ø       I feel these scams and scandals are affecting the judiciary of my country in very wrong way.

Ø       I feel people of my country will lose confidence in government and the system.

Ø       I feel anger when I see bureaucrats and leaders are manipulating the system.

Ø       I feel there must be a system OR forum where I / anybody can call the leaders for open discussion.

BUT………….

 

when I think back I feel these are impossible things because we lack “ WILL “ to do things RIGHT.

hi dear ones,

What is Water Hearvesting

It means capturing rain where it falls or capturing the run off in your own village or town.
And taking measures to keep that water clean by not allowing polluting activities to take
place in the catchment.

Therefore, water harvesting can be undertaken through a variety of ways

* Capturing runoff from rooftops
* Capturing runoff from local catchments
* Capturing seasonal floodwaters from local streams
* Conserving water through watershed management

These techniques can serve the following the following purposes:

* Provide drinking water
* Provide irrigation water
* Increase groundwater recharge
* Reduce stormwater discharges, urban floods and overloading of sewage treatment plants
* Reduce seawater ingress in coastal areas.

In general, water harvesting is the activity of direct collection of rainwater.
The rainwater collected can be stored for direct use or can be recharged into
the groundwater. Rain is the first form of water that we know in the hydrological cycle,
hence is a primary source of water for us. Rivers, lakes and groundwater are all
secondary sources of water. In present times, we depend entirely on such secondary
sources of water. In the process, it is forgotten that rain is the ultimate source
that feeds all these secondary sources and remain ignorant of its value. Water harvesting
means to understand the value of rain, and to make optimum use of the rainwater at the
place where it falls.

hi dear ones,

Android mobile AND Windows mobile

What is Android?

Android is a software stack for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications. Android is a software platform for mobile devices, powered by the Linux kernel, initially developed by Google and later the Open Handset Alliance. It allows developers to write managed code in the Java language, controlling the device via Google-developed Java libraries. The Android SDK provides the tools and APIs necessary to begin developing applications on the Android platform using the Java programming language. Applications written in C and other languages can be compiled to ARM native code and run, but this development path is not officially supported by Google.

 

Windows Mobile is a mobile operating system developed by Microsoft that was for use in smartphones and mobile devices, but is being phased out to specialized markets.

The current version is called “Windows Mobile 6.5″. It is based on the Windows CE 5.2 kernel, and features a suite of basic applications developed using the Microsoft Windows API. It is designed to be somewhat similar to desktop versions of Windows, feature-wise and aesthetically. Additionally, third-party software development is available for Windows Mobile, and software applications can be purchased via the Windows Marketplace for Mobile.
