ADIEU 2019 Y THE TIME 2020 kisses us, the last ‘teen’ (2019) of this century slips from our arm thus leaving behind its memory of many memorable events. 2019 will be remembered for many remarkable events in India. It saw the return of the most stable Government with strong mandate to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The 70 year-old eye sore article 370 and 35A of the constitution was nullified as it was temporary. Further keeping his promise made in election manifesto Citizen Amendment Act was passed by overwhelming majority in Parliament. The surgical strike and release of Indian air force Pilot Abhinandan within a short time is a significant story of the year. The Ayodhya verdict, the 1045 page landmark judgement of Supreme Court is another important story in the script of the year. In some other important countries also this ‘teen’ (2019) year have left its inedible mark... On 18 December the United States House where the Democrats are in majority has voted for Trump impeachment on the charge of abuse of power. This resolution of impeachment is expected to be defeated by US Senate where Trumps’ Republican party is in majority. A new survey shows that since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) opened the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump in late September, the approval rate of the president has gone up and support for impeachment has gone down. According to Gallup poll, only 46% of Americans support impeachment while 51% oppose the effort. In United Kingdom also the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson who campaigned for “Get Brexit done”, won a resounding election victory that will allow him to end three years of political paralysis and take Britain out of the European Union by January 31. There are many more events to be sighted, however we have narrated a few significant happenings to say adieu to 2019 and also to welcome and carry over its good, fruitful and progressive legacy in 2020.

CITIZEN AMENDMENT ACT AND NATIONAL REGISTER OF INDIAN CITIZENS IS NOT A ‘HINDU MUSLIM’ ISSUE by Suresh Srivastava UMAN IMMIGRATION had been taking place since time immemorial. The Human beings used to migrate from one geographical area to another geographical areas in search of green pasture. The evidence of Human migration is available from bronze age. With the passage of time boundary of the nations started emerging and took the shape of Nationalism. The entire South and North America was invaded by Europe and in the process many aboriginals were annihilated, similarly Australia was also invaded and almost all aboriginals ware annihilated. In the recent history the grate migration took place in 1947 when 20 million Hindu, Sikhs and Muslims migrated to India and Pakistan. The first Citizenship act was passed by the Indian Parliament in the year 1955 in which

the issues of citizenship and illegal migrants was dealt with. Section 2 (B) dealt with illegal migrants which reads as under :“Illegal migrant” means a foreigner who has entered into India – (i) Without a valid passport or other travel documents and such other documents or authority as may be prescribed by or under any law in that behalf; or (ii) With a valid passport or other travel documents and such other documents or authority as may be prescribed by or under any law ain that behalf but remains therein beyond the permitted period of time. Recently, on 12th December 2019 The Citizenship amendment act of 2019 was passed and the following provision were inserted in section 2 of the Citizenship act : In the Citizenship Act, 1955 (hereinafter referred to as the principal Act), in section 2, in sub-section (1), in clause (b), the following proviso shall be inserted, namely:"Provided that any person belonging to Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi or Christian community from Afghanistan, Bangladesh or Pakistan, who entered into India on or before the 31st day of December, 2014 and who has been exempted by the Central Government by or under clause (c) of sub-section (2) of section 3 of the Passport (Entry into India) Act, 1920 or from the application of the provisions of the Foreigners Act, 1946 or any rule or order made thereunder, shall not be treated as illegal migrant for the purposes of this Act;". The whole Muslim community is on the boil on the issue of amendment in section 2 wherein the Muslims are excluded from the provision of not to be treated as illegal migrants for the purposes of this act.

THE HISTORIC MOVEMENT WHICH CAME TO KNOWN AS ASSAM AGITATION OR ASSAM MOVEMENT LASTED A SPAN OF SIX YEARS WHICH LEFT BEHIND THOUSANDS OF BLEEDING HEARTS AND THIS CULMINATED IN THE SIGNING OF THE LANDMARK MEMORANDUM OF SETTLEMENT – THE ASSAM ACCORD AT THE BEHEST OF THEN PRIME MINISTER SHRI RAJIV GANDHI IN NEW DELHI.

shall not be treated as illegal immigrant subject to certain conditions. The recent protest by Jamia Milia Islamia, Aligarh Muslim University, Deoband Seminary, predominantly Muslim Educational Institutions and other areas of Muslim dominated population intensified and remained practically in Muslim dominated areas in India. This issue has also back-fired in Assam wherein about 2 million predominantly Bengali Hindus from Bangladesh were excluded from the NRC list and people of Assam are agitating as they fear change of demography and threat to their culture, language and way of life. Though, the History of Assam in immigration of Bengali Hindus is as old as British rule and even prior to that. During 19th and 20th Century 1826-1974 Assam witnessed intermittent migration of population from the rest of the provinces of India in the after math of the Yandabo treaty signed on 24th February 1826, this started migration of peasants from Bengal to Assam in search of fertile lands which created a fear psycho to the Assamese Culture, language and their way of life. Following partition and communal riots in the subconti-

nent Assam initially saw influx of refugees and other migrants from East Pakistan, now Bangladesh and thus between 1948 and 1971 there were large scale migration from Bangladesh to Assam. Due to influx of illegal migrants from Bangladesh a group of students leader in 1979 came out in fierce protest, demanding detention, disenfranchisement and deportation of illegal immigrants from Assam. The historic movement which came to known as Assam agitation or Assam movement lasted a span of six years which left behind thousands of bleeding hearts and this culminated in the signing of the landmark memorandum of settlement – The Assam Accord at the behest of then Prime Minister Shri Rajiv Gandhi in New Delhi. Even after the accord signed, the process of detecting and expelling immigrants never officially took off for political reasons. The process of detecting and expelling immigrants suffered from teething problems for a considerable amount of time. However the task was again finally taken-up at the behest of Supreme Court order in the year 2013 in regard

to two writ petitions wherein the Supreme Court mandated the Union Government and the State Government to complete the updation of NRC in accordance with Citizenship Act 1955 in all parts of Assam. Since, then the Supreme Court has very closely monitored the process after hearing all stakeholders on this contentious issue. The final NRC has been published on 31st August 2019 after completion of all the statutory works as per various operating procedures. A total of 3,30,27,661 persons applied for registering their names out of which 3,11,21,004 persons were found eligible leaving out 1,90,6657 persons who were not included. In this list of about two million people most of the people are immigrant Bengali Hindus who migrated to Assam for one reason or the other. The present Government headed by Prime Minister NarenderaModi and Home Minister Amit Shah took a very bold decision to grant Citizenship to all the persecuted minorities which includes only persons belonging to Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi and Christian Community from Afghanistan, Bangladesh or Pakistan who entered into India on or before the 31st Day of December 2014 subject to

certain rules of passport act of 1920 and foreigner acts 1946. This law has been passed culminating into Citizen Amendment Act 2019 which came into force on 12th December 2019. Mr.Amit Shah has given an assurance on the floor of the house that this bill (Act) has no provision to snatch Citizenship from any one but to grant citizenship to the refugees, there is no needs for Indian Muslims to live in fear. Home Minister ShriAmit Shah has clarified that there is no question of deporting any Muslim Indian out of the country or denying any Muslim Indian their rights of Citizenship which is secured and guaranteed under the constitution of India and Citizenship act. Since then, the entire Muslim community in India is on boil for many apprehension which has been created due to the passing of CAA Act of 2019 and proposed NRIC (National Register of Indian Citizens). The amendment in the Citizenship act which expressly provide minority community persecuted in Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan are not to be treated as illegal immigrant if they have crossed the border before 31st Day of December 2014. The real apprehension in the mid of the Muslim com-

THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE AGITATING AGAINST CAA-2019 FORGETS THAT MINORITIES PROTECTION IS EXPLICIT IN THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA STARTING WITH PREAMBLE OF THE CONSTITUTION TO ARTICLE 25 – 28 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA AND ARTICLE 30 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA. THERE IS ALSO NATIONAL COMMISSION FOR MINORITIES ACT OF 1992 WHICH IS RELIGION SPECIFIC SIMILARLY, THE NATIONAL COMMISSION FOR MINORITY EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS ACT IS ALSO RELIGION SPECIFIC AND NO ONE CAME OUT ON THE ROAD AGAINST THESE ACTS PASSED BY THE PARLIAMENT.

munity is that the NRIC read with CAA may result in depriving Muslim community of their Citizenship rights, as they are in mistaken belief that under the new provisions every person will be asked to give documentary evidence to prove their Citizenship in India who are born or reached in India after 1971. As a result of these factors it is imperative that Indian Muslims make every attempt to prevent the controversy surrounding the CAA from becoming a Hindu-Muslim issue. This is particularly because they are likely to be targeted for being anti national and pan-Islamic for agitating on behalf of illegal Bangladeshi Muslim migrants. It will be imprudent for Indian Muslim to portray themselves as pan-Islamic on this issue. Those people who are agitating against CAA2019 forgets that minorities protection is explicit in the Constitution of India starting with Preamble of the Constitution to article 25 – 28 of the Constitution of India and article 30 of the constitution of India. There is also National Commission for Minorities Act of 1992 which is religion specific similarly, The National Commission for

JANUARY 2020

Minority Educational Institutions Act is also religion specific and no one came out on the road against these Acts passed by the parliament. Surprisingly, Ms.MamtaBenerjee, Chief Minister of West Bengal has taken a U-TURN on the issue as when the bill was introduced in the upper house, the Trinamool Congress moved a motion seeking its disqualification on the ground that the bill is defective as none of the six clauses mention the fact that Citizenship will only be provided to persecuted minorities of the three neighbouring countries. Now, the act is vehemently opposed by TMC as anti-Muslim wherein millions of Hindu Bengalis are given a ray of hope after decades of struggle to have a dignified life in India. The present stand of CPM is also contradictory to its earlier stand, the then Secretary General of CPM Mr. Prakash Karat while speaking in the parliament had drawn a dictation between minorities who came from Bangladesh to India due to historical circumstances as the majority of minority refugees were from schedule-caste like Namashudras and Majhi who were due to their

religion were persecuted and were extremely poor. He called for a suitable amendment to clause 2 (i) (b) of Citizenship act in relation to minority community refugees from Bangladesh. He even criticized the NDA Government which proposed amendment in the Citizenship act in 2003 for not differentiating between sections of the society effected by proposed legislation and Mr. Karat regretted that dispite a consciences in parliament the matter remain pending and should have been followed by a suitable amendment in relation to minority community refugees in Bangladesh and now the CPM is on road creating a rage against the CAA-2019. The stand of Congress on this issue is also contradictory and opposed to what earlier stand they had taken in parliament when the bill was introduced in the Rajya Sabha, in the year 2003, Dr. Manmohan Singh as Leader of Opposition stated in parliament, “with regard to, the treatment of refugees after the partition of India, minorities in countries like Bangladesh have faced persecution and it is our moral obligation to help them. The circumstances force these unfortunate people to seek refuse in our country, our approach to granting Citizenship to

these people should be more liberal”. Now, Smt. Sonia Gandhi has given a call to the people to come on road to oppose CAA-2019. Shri Narendhra Modi, Prime Minister of India while speaking in a Rally on 22nd December 2019 stated that even Mahatma Gandhi had stated that the Hindus and Sikhs who were in Pakistan and even after partition should be welcomed to India as Citizens of India. He has further assured that the Government shall not pass any law which deprives its own citizens of their citizenship rights. The National Register of Indian Citizens is not yet prepared and has not been brought to parliament for its consideration. In fact the main apprehension of the minority community in India is against NSIC as they fear that by using this process they may not be deprived of their citizenship rights in India. The fear of minority community may or may not be genuine but fact remain is this, that in a country of 1.30 billion how many billion of rupees are required to prepare such Register. Will it make any sense to ask the 1.30 billion people to stand in queue to prove their citizenship of India and submit papers proving their nationality. The CAA has also set off a political storm in Assam aimed at Bengali Hindus as well as the Central Government which may not culminate into an anti-Bengali riots as they were held in the early 1960 in un-divided Assam. The apprehension of Assamese is very genuine as they keep close to their hearts their language, their culture, their ethnicity and their way of life. The Central Government must do something to assuage the hurt feeling of people of Assam. May be an inner line permit or some such things which may assure the people of Assam for maintaining and retaining their culture.

THE STAND OF CONGRESS ON THIS ISSUE IS ALSO CONTRADICTORY AND OPPOSED TO WHAT EARLIER STAND THEY HAD TAKEN IN PARLIAMENT WHEN THE BILL WAS INTRODUCED IN THE RAJYA SABHA, IN THE YEAR 2003, DR. MANMOHAN SINGH AS LEADER OF OPPOSITION STATED IN PARLIAMENT, “WITH REGARD TO, THE TREATMENT OF REFUGEES AFTER THE PARTITION OF INDIA, MINORITIES IN COUNTRIES LIKE BANGLADESH HAVE FACED PERSECUTION AND IT IS OUR MORAL OBLIGATION TO HELP THEM. THE CIRCUMSTANCES FORCE THESE UNFORTUNATE PEOPLE TO SEEK REFUSE IN OUR COUNTRY, OUR APPROACH TO GRANTING CITIZENSHIP TO THESE PEOPLE SHOULD BE MORE LIBERAL”. NOW, SMT. SONIA GANDHI HAS GIVEN A CALL TO THE PEOPLE TO COME ON ROAD TO OPPOSE CAA-2019.

Dr. Singh, who had rejuvenated 12 rivers during his 40 years of sustained work said that there was a need for decentralised water management and also for promoting use of indigenous and traditional knowledge for water harvesting. He said use of indigenous knowledge and traditional means to revive water level alone can guarantee clean drinking water for the population.“It has been witnessed that water is mostly being used for farming. So, linking of crop pattern with rain is important to

stop soil erosion. For sustainable watershed management, we need to recharge groundwater and make efficient use of it. Stopping erosion and silting will result in rejuvenation of the rivers and their flow in the right direction,” he said. “To stop soil erosion and siltation, we need to make the flow of the river slower, but not build a dam to obstruct its flow. Once the flow of river is slowed down, it prevents soil erosion in its upper area and siltation in lower areas,” he said. Dr. Singh also pointed out that 54% of India faces ‘high’ to ‘extremely high’ water stress (severe drought). “Presently in India, about 72% underground water aquifer is overdraft,” he said. Dr. Singh added that it was also possible to bring back Ganga to its original form in Patna by studying contours between right and left embankments of the river for channelising the river. He said that state government should do a mapping having contours between right and left embankments of Ganga river and channelising the river closer to the state capital. He said that the work could be done with not very huge investments and government should consider it seriously

“TO STOP SOIL EROSION AND SILTATION, WE NEED TO MAKE THE FLOW OF THE RIVER SLOWER, BUT NOT BUILD A DAM TO OBSTRUCT ITS FLOW. ONCE THE FLOW OF RIVER IS SLOWED DOWN, IT PREVENTS SOIL EROSION IN ITS UPPER AREA AND SILTATION IN LOWER AREAS,” HE SAID. DR. SINGH ALSO POINTED OUT THAT 54% OF INDIA FACES ‘HIGH’ TO ‘EXTREMELY HIGH’ WATER STRESS (SEVERE DROUGHT).

ECONOMY India may overtake Germany to become fourth-largest economy by 2026: CEBR Report

I

NDIA IS expected to become the fourth largest economy by 2026 and the third largest by 2034, according to a report by UK-based Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR). The CEBR report states that India would surpass Germany to take on the mantle in 2026 and further topple Japan in 2034 to become the third largest economy. The report stated that India would achieve its dream of reaching a gross domestic product (GDP) of $5 trillion by 2026. It has pegged the achievement a couple of years after the government's target. "India has decisively overtaken both France and the UK to become the world's fifth-largest economy in 2019. It is expected to overtake Germany to become fourth largest in 2026 and Japan to become the third largest in 2034," said CEBR in the report, titled 'World Economic League Table 2020'.However, the ranking would not be set in stone as the three economies would continue to battle for the third position over the next 15 years, the CEBR report stated. Referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government's target of taking the economy to $5 tril-

lion by 2024, it said, "India is also set to reach a GDP of $5 trillion by 2026 - 2 years later than the current government target. Noting that Indian data revisions mean that 2019 was the year when the country's economy finally overtook the UK and France, the report said, "But, slow growth during the year has increased pressure for more radical economic reforms."Despite the rapid ascent of countries such as India and Indonesia, it is striking how little an impact this will have on the US and China's dominant roles in the global economy, said Pablo Shah, senior economist at CEBR.India, which till recently was hailed as the world's fastestgrowing major economy, has seen growth rate decline to a six-year low of 4.5 per cent in the September quarter of 2019-20.This has largely been attributed to the slowdown in investment that has now broadened into consumption, driven by financial stress among rural households and weak job creation. The World Economic League Table is an annual calculation by CEBR jointly published by CEBR and Global Construction Perspectives. The base data for 2019 is taken from the IMF World Economic Outlook.

FOCUS Indian Police Alias ‘Dignified Labour’? By Chander P Mahajan n olden days the system of mutual security was almost identical with that which existed in England in Anglo-Saxon times. ‘One house shall become security for another; so that they shall all be reciprocally pledged and bound each for the other.’ Neglect or connivance was punished by fine, by imprisonment in irons, or by severe corporal punishment. The policing has been the age old practice ever since the society organised itself. However, legal police system called‘Daroga’ system appeared in British- India in the year 1792. Not long ago; ‘Kotwal’, the administrative head of police, in Poona received Rs. 9,000 a month, but he had to maintain a very large establishment of peons, some horse patrols, and so on,while he was also answerable for the value of property stolen. The history of the Indian Police under British rule is marked by a series of attempts to introduce more advanced standards of conduct and integrity, and to raise the tone of the force by improving the pay and prospects of its members. For the sake of reforms, among the conclusions and recommendations of Lord Lansdowne's Government in 1890 were: (1) That the net pay of constables should be fixed at not less than Rs. 7 a month; (2) That the pay and position of investigating and inspecting officers should be greatly improved, and that deserving Inspectors of Police should be considered eligible for appointment to the Provincial Service. British Rule over India saw another historical feat with the appointment of All India Service Commission 1902. n My father, a law graduate from Lahore, was appointed as ‘Court Inspector’ in J&K; a prosecutor in uniform. Being an eminent professional; in recognition of his able services and model conduct the title of ‘Sardar’ was conferred on him by the Government. Mr. M R Gaind the then ‘sub Judge’,

Ramesh Shah of Ghandhinagar, shares vivid memories, of his boyhood; “...Well turned out, how smart your father looked in his ceremonial uniform of high boots..”. n The role of the prosecutor, as I came to understand, had three main tasks: to investigate crimes, to decide whether or not to instigate legal proceedings and to appear in court. ... He shall have contact with the person suspected of the crime, the victim and witnesses, and have close contact with the police; and perform legal research to plan the prosecution of each case. n Presently, in the new Union Territory (UT) of Jammu and Kashmir, the police have been stripped of the “prosecution” wing. The order has caused consternation among police officers. n Today, while I watch my son, a decorated soldier, doing well in Indian Police Service, I feel as if my father is blessing his third generation from his Heavenly abode. n Looking at the passing out parade I feel emotional and enthused. His baby talk ‘mai police banu ga’ has grown in to an echoing reality -“.. I feel a moral calling to protect and serve others. ..I want to contribute to the progress of law and order in my country..I want to set examples of the application of law.. I want to make an example of honesty and integrity in the department of police… I want to play a role in the creation of a corruption free India.. my motto is to serve the society with an impartial attitude by saving the distressed persons and punishing the culprits…” n “Indian Police” have completed over 70 years as a Police of democratic, secular and pluralistic society .It is an umbrella term, which denotes not only state police forces of India but also various Central Police

Under IPSI - Mumbai and Delhi police are doing well. Of course this Index does not consider police forces in non democracies like China or Russia. n There is no denying the fact that the Indian Police has emerged more professional as compared to yesteryears, once the Police become professionally sound, they will become competent, responsive and popular with the masses.

The most hazardous task for Police- facing the unruly demonstrators

as time bound service delivery is concerned. It is high time to take a reappraisal of their achievements, failures, problems and over all images. Existing police system suffers from myriad deficiencies: n The police force in India is supervised under the 1861 Police Act which leaves little scope for citizenpolice interaction. n The creation of newer forms of crime vis- a- vis cyber (computer) has caught Indian Police unprepared for the task. Police and human rights violation, cyber safety, study of mobile & Whatsapp, Simulation and 3 D visualization of Mobile Call details records to assist crime detection algorithm and use of forensic Sciences technology in crime detection and prevention. n The police-population ratio, currently 192 policemen per lakh population, is less than what is recommended by UN i.e. 222 policemen per lakh population n One of the major problems stems from the traditional approach of clubbing a variety of disparate functions in a single police force and concentrating all authority at one level. A single, monolithic force now discharges several functions: maintaining lawand order, riot control, crime investigation, protection of State assets. In addition, giving support to state functionaries in removal of encroachments, demolition of unauthorised structures and such other regulatory activities are also treated as police responsibilities; & much more. n Overburdening of work not only reduces the

I JANUARY 2020

effectiveness and efficiency of the police personnel but also leads to psychological distress. n Police mobility is another issue, this compromises the swiftness of action and increases the response time of the police force. n Another problematic area relates to the communication networks: n In an era of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies), the police system is still struggling to get the Police Telecommunication Network (POLNET). n The Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and System (CCTNS) was envisaged to link every single police station in the country. Some states are still lagging in project implementation. n Over the years: Post of Director General, Additional Director General, and Inspector General of Police and so on, much more in proportion to the real needs, is creating role-conflict and lack of job satisfaction among senior police officers. n Growth of Central Police Organisations has resulted in over shadowing the State civil police. n Although no one disputes that the police has to be accountable,there are differing views as to whom the police should be accountable to. It has often been argued that the police are answerable and accountable to too many n Authorities and Institutions. They are answerable to their higher-ups in the organisation, they are answerable to the judiciary and the executive magistracy, to the political executive and

Women Police to the public. n There is a school of thought that the police should be accountable to the law and law alone. This, it is argued, would give the police the required autonomy to function in a fair and impartial manner and would totally insulate them from political and bureaucratic interference. n The principle of Authority, Autonomy &Accountability is so very vital to the functioning of the police. n The major chunk of police personnel comprises of constables (nearly 87%). whose position is the lowest in the hierarchy of police officials. A constable can generally expect only one promotion in a life time and normally retires as a head constable. The statutory powers of investigation are with the Station House Officer. As a result, constables have become ‘machines’ carrying out the directions of their superiors with little application of mind or initiative. Frequent transfers, placements and crime investigation, long and difficult working hours and the emphasis on brawn rather than brain in most situations tend to brutalise and dehumanise policemen. A constable devoid of dignity, lacking opportunities for vertical mobility, constantly pilloried by superiors and politicians, often derided by the public and habituated to easy recourse to violence and force cannot generally be expected to sustain his/her self-esteem or acquire the professional skills to serve the citizens. n Traditionally, the police forces have been structured on the pattern of the armed forces. Insignia similar to those of the armed forces, hierarchical control over say fourteen ranks extending from the constable to

Women account for 7% of entire police force in Indi DGP, a culture of demanded obedience, have made police a highly centralised force. n There is a need to strike a balance between authority and accountability, and between autonomy and coordination. n Out of changing socio-economic scenario and in the wake of a paradigm shift in the way policing is done, The panacea to the problems is the police reforms. Progress in this regard, however is at low pace. n In a major boost to police reforms , the government of India has already approved a Rs. 25000-crore outlay for upgrading the internal security apparatus in states; an umbrella scheme on " Modernization of Police Forces " with money to be spent in three years from 2017-18. n Bureau of Police Research and Development & CAG have, however, brought forth the under utilization of funds. n All these challenges require immediate attention of the governments — both at the Centre and the States.

Spiritual Fulfilment in Modern Life Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj ne thing in certain in life: there are always problems. “Murphy’s Law” says that if anything can go wrong, it will go wrong, and at the worst possible time. At one time or another we have all experienced this. Everyone has problems. We solve one challenge and a new one springs up. We may struggle financially, trying to make ends meet. We receive a raise to find that out car has broken down and the extra money is needed for repairs or a new car. We settle that problem, to learn that a family member has fallen ill. We find that we have a problem with a co-worker. While straightening that out, our roof leaks, needing repairs. We wonder if there will be a time free of problems. Nobody said life was going to be easy or that everything was going to be perfect. The question is: How do we handle problems? Do we face them as a challenge and solve them, or do we cry about them? Medical research reveals that we compound our problems by worrying because it adds stress that makes us physically sick. Our original problem is supplemented by physical ailments and disabilities that hamper our ability to act. We may think we alone are singled out for misfortune. Everyone’s lives are filled with difficulties. There is no end to problems. The pressures of life affect us physically and mentally. People undergo anxiety, fear, depression, and phobias. Offices of psychiatrists, psychologists, and therapists are filled with normal, everyday people who cannot cope with life’s struggles, making them unable to deal with problems. They live in fear of economic disaster. Some must handle broken marriages and broken homes. Others have anxieties about loneliness or loss. Some are disappointed in life with no hope for the future. Stress and tension do not only affect the mind. Research shows a connection between the mind and body. Our state of mind affects the health of the body. Thus, if our mind is positive and happy, we may feel physically better than when our mind is troubled and anxious. Our mental state can cause stress-related illnesses. Studies have shown that when we are angry

or emotionally upset, hormones are released in our body preparing us for “fight or flight.” Since societal norms dictate that we deal with problems calmly and rationally, we tend not to “fight or take flight,” and instead face the situation, keeping out feelings bottled up inside. The result is that these hormones work on the body, causing stress-related diseases such as high-blood pressure, heart disease, breathing problems, digestive disorders, headaches, muscle pains, skin rashes, and other problems. When our anger erupts we either fight back or run away. Those reactions may create more problems in our relationships. We need an acceptable way to prevent the mental, emotional, and physical effects of stress that make us ill. People have turned to meditation as a solution to the emotional and mental strains of life. Meditation has benefits for our physical or mental well-being. It is safe, effective, and does not cost anything. Once we learn it, we carry within a remedy that can be used at any time and place. Through meditation on the inner Light and Sound we are transported to higher spiritual realms. This experience has a profound effect on our physical, mental, and spiritual well being. Putting an end to our problems is like straightening a coil that keeps recoiling; difficulties in life do not go away. To think we can live without troubles is a pipe dream. Through meditation, we can achieve a state of consciousness where we are not affected by these problems. Meditation aids us on two levels. First, it provides physical relaxation. Second, it puts us in a state where we are absorbed in an enjoyable, blissful experience, making us oblivious to the problems of the outer world. How does meditation do this? Studies show that in meditation our brain waves function at a frequency of 5-8 Hz. During this state there is a sensation of peace and total relaxation. While this figure measures relaxation at the level of the body and mind, it does not describe the added bonus of what we experience at the level of the soul. We come in contact with a powerful current of divine

HEARTFELT CONDOLENCE ALL THE MEMBERS of the Executive Committee, Indian Federation of United Nations Associations and State UNAs are deeply saddened by the news of sad demise of ShriDharamVirBhakoo. Shri Dharam Vir Bhakoo was having a very long association with IFUNA spanning for more than five decades. He was Vice President of IFUNA. During his association with members of IFUNA he touched the hearts of all those who came in contact with him. IFUNA has lost a great inspiring personality whom we have always looked forward for the lead and ability to project the feelings and team work. He belonged to that rare or perhaps vanishing species of social and cultural ideologues which encompasses his personage with a glittering streak of spirituality. Passing away of Shri Dharam Vir Bhakoo is a tragic and personal loss to all the members. He was a man of god and will live forever in god’s eternal kingdom. IFUNA feels that the vacuum created by the sad demise of Shri Bhakooji is very difficult to fill-in and with deep pain and sorrow; we give heartfelt condolence to all the members of his family and commits to carry his great thoughts and legacy with commitment. We pray to almighty god to give strength to bereaved family of Shri Bhakooji and we are with you at this difficult moments of life.

love, consciousness, and bliss. This current provides more than physical relaxation; it bathes us in an intoxication stronger and more lasting than any external intoxication. Our body, mind, and soul experience waves of ecstasy permeating us. This experience arises from our innermost self- our soul-coming in contact with its own essence in the form of the current of Light and Sound. This current and our soul are love, consciousness, and bliss. In meditation, when body and mind are stilled, we become aware of our soul. When the soul is withdrawn it contacts inner Light and Sound. When the soul meets this current it is magnetized to it. It is like a water droplet resting on a table top. If you run a stream of water across it, the drop will attach itself to the rivulet and merge in it. Similarly, when our soul concentrates at the point where the current begins, at the third eye, it will be drawn to merge in it. We then travel on this current. Our soul rises above body-consciousness and enjoys a journey into higher realms. We can practice this process easily and naturally. The experience is so exhilarating that it surpasses any thrill in this world. It puts us in a state in which we become oblivious to life’s dif-

ficulties. Our problems no longer have the same effect because we are in a state of inner enjoyment. We do not want to be bothered by our problems and they disappear like waves in the sea. We are lifted high above the storm clouds and float in the sunny skies full of radiant inner Light. When we return to physical consciousness, we carry the vivid experience of our meditation. We still have problems, but their effect is subdued for we are lost in the bliss we carry with us. Through meditation, we can tap into this state again and again, remaining unaffected by our problems. We become detached from our suffering because we are connected with a permanent lifeline of divine bliss. With this inner support, we face our problems with a clear mind and find solutions. We make more rational decisions because we see life from a higher angle. The strains of life are reduced. We are filled with intoxication that calms the mind. This, in turn, relaxed the body. Our chances of developing stress related illnesses decrease. Meditation on the Light and Sound is like having a special retreat where we find relief from the problems of life.

PEOPLE AND UN

WHEN WE RETURN TO PHYSICAL CONSCIOUSNESS, WE CARRY THE VIVID EXPERIENCE OF OUR MEDITATION. WE STILL HAVE PROBLEMS, BUT THEIR EFFECT IS SUBDUED FOR WE ARE LOST IN THE BLISS WE CARRY WITH US.

‚àÿ ∑§ÕÊ∞¥ Anushka, STUDENT – XI WAS returning back from Sarojini Nagar Market while me and my mom happened to see the roadside vendor’s “jhuggis”. we saw when we were stuck in traffic. I got surprised and emotional for them. All they did for their lives was to sell balloons and bouquets which hardly anyone bought. Their way of earning was too courageous as they (the small children) used to rush in front of windows of cars and requested with such an angelic god gifted smile to buy their products. Despite everything, the unity among all the vendor's families was truly appreciable. One was cracking jokes and giggling along with the family while the other one seems to be worried about upcoming days. I am unable to deal with this fact that we the people who are getting an ideal life and in those poor people's perception, the ideal life was the one which has a family to live with, food enough to survive, clothes to protect themselves from variations of weather and smile on each one's face. Whereas we all who have this, leaves no opportunity to taunt God for not making our lives better.
