Faith Can Move Mountains Shyam Kishore Sahay Motivational trainer

A

ll of us must have heard a saying that ‘faith can move mountains’. If we try to delve in the reasoning we would certainly reach to some very logical and scientific conclusions. We would even find that faith has its own science. Have you ever seen a loving father throwing his child several feet up in the air! You might have experienced it yourself too. The moment child goes up, he or she laughs out of joy, excitement and thrill. You won’t find a single sign of fear and worry on the face of the childthe simple reason is that the child is more than assured that two strong and visible hands of his father would hold him back. This is the called faith. We have been told many a time that like our biological father or ‘Pita’, there is a supreme father ‘Param Pita’. He can’t be seen through these worldly eyes and his hands are not visible. Yet through our extra sensorial powers we can realize him, only if we have faith in him. He is there to save us from all the troubles and sufferings. But rarely do we give a call to him with full faith and patience. As we grow older we start believing in ourselves more and more. In the process of our development, a sheer innocent cry and an unmoved faith are the first causalities. There is nice story: Once Lord Krishna was having his meal and Rukmini was serving it to him. The moment he was about to take his first mor-

5

sel of the food, he suddenly stood up and started running towards the door of the Rajmahal. Rukmini could not understand the matter. Before she could have made anything out of it, Lord Krishna returned halfway. Rukmini was more puzzled. She asked, what happened.? Krishna replied, a devotee was in trouble, he was being attacked by several people and he was constantly calling me for help. Rukmini asked, then why did you come back.? Lord Krishna replied, by the time I was about to reach out to him, I saw he had picked up a stone in his hands. I understood that now he could save himself and I returned. Thus to get the divine help you need divine faith too. Now the question is, how to inculcate that unflinching faith in ourselves.? In a way it is very simple and easy. Just become a child in word and spirit; see everything as it is; don’t discriminate; love all and get loved by all, be innocent and pure, just as a child remain happy come whatever. You will find that to have faith in our parents and in the divine parent is our very natural state of being. We are like that only. We don’t have to do anything to achieve that state. Yes, you simply have to get rid of all the knowledge and reason that have overpowered your true emotions. Believe me, like your parents your divine parent or ‘Parampita’- is there to embrace you in all situation. Just have a faith in him.

How to save a from break up? t is popularly believed that women don't make any relation or friendship in a hurry. They sensibly take time to assess and judge people before getting into a seriousrelationship Sometimes, one wonders what would be the different criteria in women to choose ‘somebody’. I often ask myself an important question, that how do we select people for any relation or friendship? What quality and qualifications one should actually look for to make someone a friend or partner? Perhaps you would either be surprised or might be guessing why I am so concerned about these silly queries? Let’s discuss and debate to reach to some sort of conclusion.

We quite often ask ourselves, why would I bother? Let him/ her approach first. This egoistic attitude may actually break your long-lasting relationship. At last I would conclude by saying that we should always be flexible in our approach to have a successful, strong and long lasting relationship.

It has been found in a study that many people have the wrong assumption that to become a friend or to stabilize their ongoing relation, contributing partners must have the same Ideology. Is it really true or a misconception created by some people? Let’s find out. Frankly speaking, when I see people in real life having altogether different ideologies & thinking, are actually very good COMMUNICATIVEFRIENDS. These people share a very good chemistry and understanding. A mutual exchange of valuable knowledge and information among them make this relation bit interesting too. On the other side, I have met people same ideologies fighting and quarreling over a particular issue very frequently. Understandably, it may vary from person to person. But fact is that our above assumption has not proven true. Let me quickly list out some of the unanswered questions with reasonable answers that quite often arises in a relationship. Should partners have a better understanding & trust for a sustained-relationship? No, I guess, it’s not necessary at all, we do have many

7

June

2015

such examples in front of us where contributing partners keeps on blaming & accusing each other every day for being dishonest and disloyal in their relationship, we can assume that there is ‘NO’ understanding and trust in such relationships. In fact, this ‘NO’ is very significant here, as such, relationships are going on and on for many years , of course instead of a BIG ‘NO’ there is minute & silent ‘YES’ always. That ultimately makes a HUGE difference in a relationship. This question keeps on repeating itself that after all these ‘No’s’, what’s that hidden force that actually saves an almost broken-relationship What makes a relation ‘stable’ after all obstacles? I know readers would be

very anxious to know about that influencing & powerful force behind such relationships which holds them tight together after facing various obstacles? Let’s end your curiosity; that’s nothing but the LOVE….yes it is Love…. It has certainly got the tremendous capacity that can singlehandedly overshadow the other influencing FACTORS. One cannot imagine the POWER of LOVE which can save a relationship even if it is on the verge of breaking. It is an opinion of many people that if there is one decisive force that can actually defeat or resist the LOVE is the EGO of a person itself. EGO kills LOVE, eventually a relationship. We quite often ask ourselves, why would I bother? Let him/her approach first. This egoistic attitude may actually break your long-lasting relationship. At last I would conclude by saying that we should always be flexible in our approach to have a successful, strong and long lasting relationship.

Women enjoy talking about relationships and you can share thoughts about your break-up, throwing light on what really went wrong. Talking to people will help you come to terms with what you feel and comfort you that there are some who care for you. Some even seek the comfort of online friends. They have plenty of good advice and really rally to support you through your crisis. In a situation in which your partner has irrevocably lost your trust, it is best to make a clean break and end the relationship. Otherwise you will live haunted by the memory of the two-timing, which will never let you love her completely again. The two of you will have an uncomfortable relationship, constantly worried about each other’s fidelity. But sometimes, despite the heartbreak that your girlfriend has caused you, both of you may still have strong and deep feelings for each

other. You may be willing to forget the wrongdoing and accept the apologies of a repentant partner. If you are lucky, then both can work extra hard at salvaging your relationship, but this situation is really difficult and rare. Next, discuss with her why she felt the need to stray. An open and honest discussion will throw light on any problems in your relationship. These can be mended and healed and you can start afresh. But beware that such a discussion must not affect your self-esteem in a negative manner. The next discussion must be to focus on the positive aspects of your relationship. You must acknowledge problem areas which require repair. Stop letting the past haunt your future. Ideate on

positive contributions to improve your relationship. Next, set limits on a repetition of the behavior by your partner. You must ask her to put an end to twotiming once and for all or threaten that you will walk away for good. You must set non-negotiable boundaries so that the new relationship survives. Both have to completely honest and open with each other. You must acknowledge that you are con-

sciously working at giving your relationship a fresh lease of life. It requires hard work, some forgiveness, some patience and lots of trust in each other. But there is a scenario in which your girlfriend has done the unthinkable - dumped you! Thrown your relationship out of the window. In this case, don’t even dream of trying to get back together - she is not worth your love and attention. It is a heartbreaking situation and you need to take care of yourself to get over it. First seek comfort elsewhere - it is not very manly, but it does you a world of good if you seek the company and comfort of any other female friends.

Anjali Singh eenakshi Dixit, who is making her Bollywood debut in forthcoming political satire P Se PM Tak, says the experience of shooting for the movie with veteran filmmaker Kundan Shah helped her grow from a heroine to an actor. "Thanks to this experience, I think I've grown from a heroine to an actress. By the end of the shoot, I feel I've grown as a human being and that my perception towards life, myself and cinema has completely changed," Meenakshi plays a prostitute. She says she didn't have any qualms of taking up such a role in her debut Bollywood film. She said, "I'd like to believe that I'm a typical commercial cinema heroine and that I always felt I was more suitable for commercial roles. All my work so far in the south has been very commercial. But this was a challenging role. It was something I had not done before and I was only apprehensive thinking 'Will I be able to carry such a role without making a fool of myself?'" Although it's a role of a prostitute, Meenakshi said her director presented her "respectfully on the screen". "For this role, I was made to look five shades darker and had to wear clothes that looked least fashionable; some were even torn. I also had to ruin my Hindi and speak with an accent. Shah-ji never tried to make me look beautiful on screen, but the character I play

When asked how she landed the project, Meenakshi said, "His first choice for this script was Madhuri, and he even went to her but the project didn't materialise. He told me that Madhuri inspires him." "Whenever he gets stuck with a story or with a particular scene, he'd ask himself how Madhuri would do it if she was part of the project. When Madhuri turned down the offer, he decided to cast a newcomer. He auditioned a lot girls and fate worked in my favour," she said.

Arrange your summer hours with the hair products that are completely born natural. Using artificial color, chemical based treatments and heat treatments will wreak havoc on the hair and make them brittle and weak. Using natural products helps the hair to be moisturized and protects as well.

Manage your hair splits

Summer is just another best time for the split ends to come up because of the inevitable dryness. These split ends simply drop the good hair looks you have polished on the hair. So manage splits through cutting them regularly when they pop out. Also make sure to apply oil like coconut oil to the hair tips after you have done with cutting the split ends.

Oil massage

Giving oil massage to the scalp during summer is a very good tip to follow to dump the dirt and dust out of the scalp. It is also recommended to improve the blood circulation of the scalp and to strengthen the hair roots. Try to proceed this tip before rinsing of your hair to get the smooth textured hair.

Hair sunscreen

Our scalp is not less than the skin of us, it too needs the protection from sun on the name of sunscreen. Applying sunscreen to hair is a way to reserve extra protection to the hair.

Delhi is boastfully described to be as ‘Dil walon ka shahar (the city of large hearted people). But, unfortunately, it has turned out to be a hogwash for a 200 bed hospital at Srisapur in northwest Delhi, whose foundation stone was laid by none other than Rajiv Gandhi himself, way back in 1983. The files are gathering dust ever since , as work on this estimated `200 crores project, is yet to take off. The land is still vacant as not even construction work has started.

OR Even though the Rural Delhi, popularly called as Delhi dehat houses has three hospitals, namely Babu Jagjivan Ram, Satyawadi Raja Harishchand and Balmiki Hospital, but being known to host half the city’s population the ratio alarmingly highlights an acute shortage of medical facilities. The Health department finally opened its eyes and now according to the new master plan, by 2021 an area of 10 acres and 60 foot at least will be dedicated for 500 hundred bed Hospital. The Health department additionally will buy another 20.5 acers of land to also construct a Medical College and a Trauma Center along with

project to start but it was stalled every time due to opposition from several quarters”, lamented Shastri. Ironically, Krian Walia who took over as the Health Minister in 2008, could not even recall the project. “They both had promised that they would ensure the hospital started as soon as possible. But what has happened is that after the official inauguration even the foundation stone have been stolen by thieves,” rues Devdutt Sharma, the RWA president of the area. The project file has been pending in the health department for clearance. There is no hospital for the vast area inhabited by dozens of villages, unauthorized colonies and densely-populated Narela. Even though this earmarked land have had boundary walls built around twice, there is no facility of light on the ground.

Of the 8 Medical Colleges in Delhi, 7 specially teach M.B.B.S., of which Maulana Azad Medical Hospital College and University of Medical Science (UCMS) are under the Delhi Government. “During my time, no foundation stone for a hospital was laid unless and until all the required permission were acknowledged. During Shastri's time a many foundation stones were laid for projects that did not receive all the clearances, said Walia. “As Health Minister how did she not know about this project. I have written a letter to the CM of Delhi Arvind Kejerwal and this Hospital is on my priority list. I will do as soon as possible”, local MLA Ajesh Yadav told this reporter.

THE CITY OF NEGLECT Narela in North West Delhi constituency, The area's population is about 16 millions. But if we talk about the benefits of modern facilities in this area, people have to think ten times before stepping out of their homes, as question like where to go and how keep hounding.

If we want to make Delhi a smart city than we have to convert Delhi in to a place where facilities go to the people, not the people have to go to facilities. We need that every person got all facilities that get urban residential people.

PUSHPA PAL elhi, the national capital of the world’s largest democracy, has a distinct identity and aura of its own. Being one of the four metropolitan cities of the country, Delhi is the best known Indian city internationally. Naturally then, the mention of its name flashes the image of a glittering life, elite culture, noble lifestyle and a place resplendent with all modern facilities and amenities in the mind. It is a city to be held in different perspective of life. Delhi holds hopes for millions. The city bears the spectacle of a variegated spectrum of people congregating from the remotest corners of the country, from most of the states with eyes nursing a dream of a better life. Delhi provides an insight into the inequalities that are to be glaringly found throughout the country. While a few live a life of plenty, a majority of the masses languish in abject poverty. While there are some areas in Delhi which are so far away from better life style. Outside of people to flee to Delhi in search of the good life is simple, but Delhi people have to go away from their homes for a better life and it gave a great satire on modern Delhi's identity. Every time the Government in Delhi made a promise of a new development every time. Each party to the arguments of the development work carried out during the Government’s tenure.

These are all things that the development is limited to the same areas of Delhi, which has already developed. Today, I want to show you a picture of Delhi, where the people living in Delhi have to go 20 kms away from their homes for better facilities. Narela in North West Delhi constituency, the area's population is about 16 millions. But if we talk about the benefits of modern facilities in this area, people have to think ten times before stepping out of their homes, as question like where to go and how, keep hounding. The definition of development is limited to the electricity, water and health facilities. As you may know, Narela area is a part of the North West Delhi, the area is also broadly known as the outer Delhi. The people have to go for movie mall, restaurant, Domino’s, McDonald’s, etc., from so far away from their homes. If we talk about the movie hall, in the range of 20-25 kms., this area has not a single movie hall. The area closest to the movie

hall is Pitampura and Rohini. The choice of today's young generation, McDonald’s and Domino’s food chain services branch also not available here. The nearest branch of Domino’s in Adarsh Nagar and nearest branch of McDonald’s is in Modal Town, which is so far away from Narela. Not only that the companies who promise to give their facilities to every region and every household, also don’t give home delivery in this area. That means to eat pizza and burger, people have to go there them self. That is the reason this area given a name of undeveloped area. Efficiency of modern facilities is the main reason that people don’t want to go there. The DDA allotted flats are empty but no one want to live in these flats. If we want to make Delhi a smart city than we have to convert Delhi into a place where facilities go to the people, not the people have to go to facilities. We need that every person gets all facilities that a get urban residential person get. .


Dill mil Gaye SONU ove is the most sacrosanct human feeling which has continued to inspire umpteen numbers of creative thinkers & script writers to create an epic around. There are two love birds - Muskan and Chand. Muskan is a tender, lovely and lovable girl who lives with her family. Hailing from Punjab, Muskan lives with her little brother, an elder sister and parents in a rented Pooth Kalan gramsabha in the mega city of Delhi. Muskan’s love starts on a bizarre note with a street fight. Actually she had picked up a fight with an aunty in the street, when her-love to be- Chand saw her for the first time and was floored. It was love at first sight. She was stunning in a black suit, looking gorgeous. When Chand had seen her, he loved at first site with her. Then he gave friendship proposal to a bhabhi ji but Muskan refuses his proposal. At this Chand started to follow her in market, temple and village park also. But Chand’s effort was totally waste. But Chand wasn’t to lose from this. Again he sent proposal with a threat, that if you will not accept my friendship, I will die. At this she accepted his proposal and now start their love story. They talk on phone and spent time together also. But whenever Chand’s parents asked anything he replied that he is going at plot. At this his father doubted him that he may have affair with a girl. He was thinking that Muskan or her mother knows that girl. That’s way he went to Muskan’s house to asking her about that girl. But Muskan’s father refused him and told him that you should ask your son. My daughter hasn’t any information about it. More few days spent, their life is going sweetly but every love story will not go smoothly for a long time. Yes, now comes a twist in this love story too, one day Muskan had some injury via an accident and now she was at her grandma’s house. When Chand got this news he went to meet her, but for his bad luck, Muskan’s father came at the same time. He was shocked to see Chand near Muskan. Her father was furious and he said to Chand, if he ever see him with Muskan, he will tell your father.. After this both the families was living normal smooth life. But love life came in their ways as it was a taboo for them. One day Chand’s father got a photograph and this was Muskan’s. Seeing her picture in his own house, he was sure he girl (Muskan) is involved with his son. Now he asked Chand, ‘will you marry her’. To this Chand said yes, and the June 2015

eet the 21st century supercar: the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid. It’s insanely fast despite having three cylinders, not eight or twelve. On country roads you cruise in supreme comfort and quiet. The first 20 miles of your trip come from electric power. The i8 employs electric motors front and back, the gas engine in back, two transmissions, and lithium-ion batteries running through the middle of the cockpit. The body is all-carbon fiber, the fibers coming from BMW’s own hydro-powered factory. The BMW i8 is a Chevrolet Volt on steroids. It is a sports cars with an environmental conscience. The i8 wins our Editors’ Choice award as the best of the new breed of supercars.

The BMW i8 is a Chevrolet Volt on steroids. It is a sports cars with an environmental conscience. The i8 wins our  Editors’ Choice award as the best of the new breed of supercars.

The toughest part about driving the BMW i8 is getting in: You have to climb over a door sill virtually even with the top of the seat cushion, while ducking under the low-slung scissor doors. To paraphrase mama, “Always wear good underwear. You never know when you’re going to the hospital, or getting out of an i8.” Once aboard, the cockpit is surprisingly roomy for a sports car other than the front-to-back tunnel that houses 217 pounds of lithium-ion batteries. It’s also very BMWlike: pushbutton start, a freestanding 8.8-inch LCD display atop the center stack, the eight programmable buttons that tune your favorite stations or call home, the beer tap-looking shifter, the Eco-Normal-Sport rocker switch, and of course iDrive.

FM bole to... Arguably the best comic reliever Baua alias Raunac in a candid conversation with ANJALI SINGH ife is full of paradoxes. We are in an age where ‘Suno nahi dekho’ (Don’t listen, see for yourself), drives every aspect of life and ‘seeing is believing’ as its credo. Someone leading you to imbibe what is contrary to it, sounds like sowing rose in the desert. But, believe me, this is what Baua nay Raunac of FM Mirchi genre has proved to have done. Radio, which acquired a singular distinction of being a lone mode of entertainment with reach crisscrossing the length and breadth of the country, continues to hold its charm; thanks largely to the splurge of the private radio stations and more particularly to the FMs. But Radio Mirchi has its own captive audiences and credit goes much to the character of Baua, whose vocal chord can lead even a blaze to burst into splits. The Radio as a means of entertainment industry, has changed the tenor of entertainment in India. As when the media was trying to spread its wings through television by launching private channels like Zee TV, Sony TV giving viewers a new trend of entertainment in the late nineties. By the new millennium year approaching Y2K, news channels like Aajtak, Star News with ABP tie up which is now ABP News have shown the new way of bringing News to Indians. Interestingly, it was the same span of time when Music lovers of India used to buy cassettes, tapes and CDs of different Bolly-

Then it was time for the first private FM was being launched by the Radio Mirchi at Indore in the year 2000 which had indeed changed the way of entertainment in India. The private FM channels had fought for their space when first phase of private FM licenses were allocated, one could called it as the initial appetite for the Radio entertainment industry. The leading media house of the country had seriously taken the Radio as an extension of the Media. This also dipped the sales of Music cassettes and CDs. In the first phase of Radio innovation in the industry, the Media House like Times of India had launched the most successful and powerful Radio Brand Radio Mirchi with the Frequency of 98.3Hz. It was followed by another giant Media House in India today who launched the Radio channel RED FM with a Tagline


www.ncrlife.in

‘Asli Masti’ with frequency 93.5 Hz. After the split in Reliance, the younger brother Anil Ambani, though the first phase of Radio, took the lead and launched a Radio Channel called BigFM with 92.7 frequency, it was governed by the guidelines of Ministry of I&B with the close coordination with TRAI by defining the 10 lakhs plus populated cities. The first phase had started its Radio journey by bringing alive oldest medium of the world called RadioThats through which metro cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, etc., got into its first serious step towards the Radio industry. In the second phase, the Radio had launched IWTH that includes 5 lakhs plus populated cities giving Radio to tier 1, tier 2 and even tier 3 cities.

Today, Radio has become an integral part of our life, entertaining every section of people; even the Bollywood Directors and Producers today love to promote or launch their music and film through Radio channels much before their actual release. They probably had understood how to take advantage of the Radio industry. In this era of 21st century, the Radio Jockeys have become larger than life with the youth of today’s generation. Like the famous RJ Malishka of Red FM, has been the No. 1 RJ of India. Red FM programmes reflect the needs of our youth today.

on't just sit there, do something! The Amygdala, is that part of the brain that identifies danger and then signals the body for fight or flight and quite good at reacting to potential danger. A little too good, you might say. For many of us, the stressors of high-paced, nonstop modern living chronically stimulate our amygdala, thus keeping our bodies in a state we call stress. We become so locked into high alert that we remain stressed out even though no danger actually lurks around the corner. While a single stress response can be critical, chronic stress is a health hazard. Often our well-meaning leisure activities and our attempts to lower our stress levels -- such as going on vacation, a yoga class, engaging in our hobbies, or even a massage -- fail to keep our stress levels down. Why? Because, firstly, we get stressed just trying to fit these activities into our busy lives (and paying for them) and secondly the moments of relaxation we might experience often need not

. Daydream by gazing out your window: I know that your teachers told you to stop staring out the window and focus on your work. But now your objective is to let your work go for a few minutes. Start with a long exhale and then let your gaze wander. Notice what's happening in the outside world. Just notice. Feel how your body relaxes as you redirect your mind away from stressful thoughts. Especially its fun to imagine a feel good fantasy like being romantic, heroic, or otherwise. Daydreaming is not only relaxing, but it can actually help boost your creativity.

Tap your body from the feet up: Use your knuckles to gently tap your way up your body. Focus your attention on the sensations. Start from your feet and move up the calves to thighs. Tap along your torso and up each arm. Use your finger tips to gently tap your face. When you redirect your attention toward physical sensations, you may notice that your thoughts subside. In Energy Medicine tapping is an important way to help relieve stress and revitalize your energy.

. Close your eyes and imagine yourself on a fantastic vacation: Take a moment and travel back in time to a wonderful trip. Or picture a fabulous destination that you've always wanted to visit. Use details to imagine the temperature, the sights, the sounds, the smells. Replay a favorite place, detail by detail. Notice how your body responds to pleasant, relaxing thoughts, almost as if you are actually there. Take a deep breath andconsider this your "Calgon take me away!" moment.

. Close your eyes and scan your body: Start from the top of your head and "scan" down, slowly checking in with your body. As you scan, imagine warmth spreading from the top of your head, down your neck, over the shoulders, onto your arms, down your torso, down your legs, and moving out through your feet. Notice a sense of inner awareness. For example, even with your eyes closed, you are aware of your hands and feet; you can feel an aliveness within them. Allow your attention to move from "thinking" to "sensation". Use these moments to re-connect with your body and release any tension within. The body scan is a classic relaxation technique. There is a time and place for action and reaction, and there's also a place for the pleasure of stillness. You may not be able to get to the yoga mat, your barbells, or your sneakers.

f the national capital of the country has any place to bask in as its medieval Shopping Centre that continues to be the cynosure of all eyes even in this era of dominantly hedonistic generation, Chandni Chowk stands out as a symbol of medieval marvel. Chandni Chowk or the Moon Light Square was designed and established by Mughal princess Jahanara in 1650 and continues to be an exceptionally exceptional site as the largest trading center standing in the heart of the famously known walled city Delhi. Sandwiched between the biggest fort of the country, famed as the Red Fort or Lal Quila on one side and a recce of modish food giants like Domino’s & Mc Don-

ald complemented by the traditional Indian foodies like the Paranthe Wali Gali & Ghante Wala Halwai on the other, this place happens to be one of the very few most famous and crowded business centers of Delhi. It was originally named as Shah Jahanabad after the great Mughal emperor Shah Jehan who ruled from 1627 to 1657 got the nation’s pride known as the Red fort opposite it and the biggest mosque called Jama Masjid adjacent to it. Both standing on the banks of the Yamuna with their pristine glory remaining intact. Situated opposite the Red Fort, the bazaar has several galis and each of these gali represent a specialty of the market, for example the Paranthe Wali gali is famous for its paranthas. Similarly there is jewellery lane, textile lane and so on. The market place has many historical land marks like -

Chandni Chowk or the Moon Light Square was designed and established by Princess JAHARNARA SHAH JAHANS in1650. Princess Jharan laid the foundation of Chandhni Chowk, which is the largest trading centre in the main street of Old Delhi.

is a jewellery lane, textile lane and so on. The market place has historical land marks like-the Sunheri Masjid which stand next to the Kotwali. The Fatehpur Mosque, is located at the west end of Chandni Chowk and the famous Jma Masjid is also situated nearby. Chandni Chowk (Moonlight Square) is a market that hubs with activity all through the year. The water in a pool reflected the moonlight and then flowed into a channel that flowed through the avenue. It is a crowded place and normally there is a maze of traffic that one has to negotiate almost every second. North of the avenue were vast gardens and one of them surrounded the glittering Jahanara Sarai, which has a plinth as spacious as that of Jama Masjid. There was the Palace of the Begum which today houses the biggest electrical market of north India, Bhagirath Palace. At the western end is the Fathepuri Masjid which was built by one of Shahjahan's wives and was the venue of public debates between Muslim theologians and Christian missionaries in the 19th century. It has a large number of galis (lanes) and a famous poet wrote about the lanes saying that "who would like to leave them". Each gali has something special about it for instance there is the Paranthe Wali gali, where people could feed on the choicest paranthas. There

are galis which house the wholesale textiles market and there is also a gali where jewellers have their shops. Chandni Chowk has a history of more than three hundred years. We started our tour at Digambar Jain Lal Mandir which is the oldest Jain temple of Old Delhi. What is today Old Delhi for us was Shahjahanabad, the capital established by the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan & it remained the capital till 1857. The Jain temple was also called Urdu Mandir or Urdu Temple, from the story that the shrine was initially built for Jain soldiers in the army of the king. ‘Urdu’ meant a camp. Next to the Jain temple is the eighteenth century old Gauri Shankar Mandir devoted to Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati, built by Marathas. A few steps ahead is the SBI building which was once a British Bank and it stands on the estate of a Kashmiri dancing girl- Begam Samroo. Now the mansion & its gardens are gone. The site was purchased by Lala Bhagirath and there is a very large market for electronics here, named after him. Just before the SBI building, is the Esplanade Road, leading to Jama Masjid. It is a wellknown market for camera parts and bicycles. Further into Chandni Chowk is the entry to Dariba Kalan, which is an exclusive market for Jewellery. At the entrance stands the ‘old & famous’ Jalebi Wala. Across the road is the Central Baptist Church, one of the oldest Church in Delhi. One of the most important Sikh shrines in the subcontinent is the Gurdwara Sisganj in Chandni Chowk. It is here that Guru Teg Bahadur was beheaded in 1675, on the orders of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb on his

firm refusal to emperor’s demand to convert to Islam. The Mughal Kotwali where the Guru was imprisoned is now the Langar Hall of the Gurdwara. The blue & white fountain (Northbrook Fountain) is built on the spot where the Guru’s associates, Bhai Mati Das, Bhai Sati Das and Bhai Dyala were tortured and killed. There is now a museum on Sikh history which is named in their memory. The fountain chowk has other landmarks like the Sunheri Masjid, a three domed copper plated mosque built in 1721. It is said that Persian invader, Nadir Shah stood and witnessed the massacre of the city in 1739. Ghantewala Halwai the oldest sweetshop whose antecedents go back to royal Mughal kitchens is a few steps ahead. We take a slight detour from the main street of Chandni Chowk into the Paranthwali Gali, the street of fried bread. It is extremely popular for its fried bread (parantha) filled with a mind boggling variety of stuff: dry fruits, rabri, khurchan, chilli, paneer &and vegetables of all kind. This lane leads to Kinari Bazaar and a group of Havelis called Naughara.

How

Chandni Chowk

got its name

W

When the famous Mughal Emperor Shahjahan shifted his capital from Agra to Delhi and established the city of Shahjahanabad, he had the majestic Red Fort or Lal Qila, on the banks of River Yamuna. Chandni Chowk was built in 1650 AD as an accompaniment to the Fort. It was designed by Jahanara, the Emperor's favorite daughter. A large Chowk ("square") with a central pool was built at some distance from the Fort. The story goes that on a moonlit night, the new complex and the pool lay shimmering; as a result, it acquired the name of Chandni Chowk- "the Moonlit Square". Another legend says that the Chowk was named after its Silversmiths and there is a confusion of the word 'Chandi' (Silver) with 'Chandni' (Moonlight).

elhi University on Saturday asserted that the issue of implementation of the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) from the upcoming academic session will have no impact on its admission process. “We are in the preparatory phase of CBCS implementation. If UGC gives a go ahead, we are ready for that transition but it will not affect the admission process,” said DU spokesperson. The rollback of the ambitious Four-Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP) after UGC’s intervention last year had delayed the varsity’s admission process, causing discomfort to the aspirants, especially the outstation candidates. The teachers have been alleging that the varsity is violating statutory norms in the CBCS implementation. “The admission process has nothing to do with CBCS implementation. It is about syllabus about credit transfer and grading and not about admissions,” UGC had in September last year asked all central universities to implement CBCS from

the ensuing academic session following a meeting of the vice chancellors of all universities. DU had formed a sevenmember committee in December last year to propose changes in the varsity’s examination system with a view to implementing the scheme. The committee had submitted its recommendations, based on which the varsity had passed the proposal in its Academic Council (AC) of going ahead with the implementation. However, its plans were held back by the HRD ministry which questioned the VC about varsity’s preparations before doing the same. While the university has maintained an undecided stand on the issue since then, a communication was sent last week to all faculty deans asking them to start preparation of syllabus for CBCS implementation. The decision of DU came against the backdrop of a section of DU teachers submitting a feedback of 40 affiliated colleges to UGC opposing implementation of CBCS on the ground that its roll out without exhaustive deliberation would be “disastrous” for the university.

Special rules for

girl's R

ush for admission forms at the Art Faculty in DU’s North Campus. (HT file photo) No additional eligibility criteria, such as minimum percentage marks to qualify for certain subjects, will not be applicable in admission to Delhi University this year. Last year, after the four-year undergraduate programme was scrapped, certain colleges had specified their additional eligibility criteria. Majority of the admission guidelines for the undergraduate courses have been approved by the vice-chancellor and will soon be announced. Though admission dates are yet to be announced, officials said the admissions will be over by August 14. Though additional eligibility criteria will not be followed the colleges will be allowed certain relaxations to give advantage to girl students.

The relaxation will be capped at 3% and the college will have to inform the office of Dean Students’ Welfare along with the data of the last two years for justifying the norms. The details of the relaxation will also be uploaded on the university website. This year too, it has been strictly specified that candidates will be allowed to fill only one common pre-admission form, either online or offline. The admission guidelines also specifies that for courses where admissions are done through entrance test, separate procedures will be followed. Normally admission test is held for English, Hindi journalism, but it was not held last year. After the declaration of the cut-off, the colleges will have to admit all candidates who have percentages that meet the cut-off. “No first-come first-served policy is permitted,” an official said.

colleges to have uniform eligibility criteria

aying down the uniform criteria, DU’s admission policy for 2015-16 says no college can impose additional riders. For instance, clearing Class XII mathematics is compulsory for those seeking admission to BCom (H) or Economics (H) this year. Earlier, one college could ask for qualifying marks while another would set the cutoff at 70%. Gone are the days when students applying to Delhi University had to scan the fine print of every college prospectus to grasp the vastly different additional criteria applicable to various courses. The university has announced uniform additional eligibility criteria for its undergraduate admissions - which start from May 28 -a huge relief for aspirants weighing penalties and waivers in cut-offs. Laying down the uniform criteria, DU’s admission policy for 2015-16 says no college can impose additional riders. For instance, clearing Class XII mathematics is compulsory for those seeking admission to BCom (H) or Economics (H) this year. Earlier, one college could ask for qualifying marks while another would set the cutoff at 70%. Among other uniform criteria applicable across colleges this year is that 2.5 percentage points will be deducted from the best of four (one language and three academic subjects taught at honours level) aggregate if the subject being applied for isn’t part of it. The same will be applicable for every vocational subject included in the best of four or for every subject that is not taught at the honours level in DU, but there are a few exceptions. For instance, commerce isn’t taught in CBSE schools so accountancy will be considered an academic subject and no penalty exacted. This will come as a relief to many students with vocational subjects at the Class XII level who faced a disadvantage of up to 5 percentage points in the cut-off in previous years. However, candidates changing streams to pursue BCom and BA programme can face a deduction of up to 5% points in the best of four aggregate. Students who pursued Informatics Practices in Class XII used to face a penalty previously, but this year, DU will treat the subject as equivalent to computer science for admission to the computer science honours course. Also, an advantage of 2 percentage points will be given to those aspirants for English (Hons) and Hindi (Hons) who have studied electives in the subject at senior secondary level. Streamlining the sports admission process, the university has decided to introduce centralized fitness trials, which are qualifying tests for the final sports trials. The tests used to be conducted by the colleges individually till last year.

Till last year, the fitness trials were held separately. However, from this year onwards the colleges will be mandated to videograph the sports trials and upload them on their websites. Although the process is expected to witness certain

Delhi University has always produced some of the greatest sports-person and a centralised process will definitely help in improving the quality further changes but the intake will remain the same under sports quota i.e upto 5% of the total seats. Delhi University’s spokesperson Mr. Malay Neerav said, “The trials for the particular sports will be conducted by the colleges themselves. The colleges will also be mandated to videograph the sports trials and upload them on to their websites. There will be a grievance committee to look into complaints of unfair or biased process, if any.” “Delhi University has always produced some of the greatest sports-person and a centralised process will definitely help in improving the quality further” said a recent Delhi University graduate. While Delhi University is bringing some institutional changes, one can expect a smoother and easier process this year, provided it’s implemented properly.

In order to do this, I create a peaceful and soulful perspective in my private world. One of the ways I do this is by practicing the philosophy of Feng Shui. Ten years agomy sister and me while visiting our friend in Sentosa Island in Singapore, she invited us to her office and after welcoming us I said, "I feel surrounded in harmony". Her face lit up, with a big smile, her eyes opened wide and she began to explain to me the philosophy of Feng Shui, a 3,000 year-old Chinese practice. She went on to explain: "My desk must face in this direction for prosperity". "My plants provide me with extra oxygen". "My office sits on this site because it faces water that gives me peace and serenity". "My possessions from my family are in the glass case in front of me. They represent love, therefore joy". "My desk is uncluttered so my thoughts can be clear". "My watch is on my right wrist, though I am right handed.
