Kondalampatti Hamlet of handloom silks

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JUNE 2016


The process of manufacturing a Kondalampatti handloom Saree starts with dyeing the silk yarn. Dyeing is the coloring process of the yarn by dipping the yarn in the boiling colour water in very high temperature. The durability of colour will be high, when it is done in high temperature. Dyeing of the yarn is done by making sure that the color is spread uniformly throughout the yarn and it does not affect the quality of the yarn. The coloring process is a very crucial step in getting a good colourful saree. The colours are applied as per the specifications of the designers. Some times customers who orders for a designer Saree also used to give their preferences. After coloring the silk yarn is dried in shade. Drying yarn in sun can be harmful.

Weaving The yarn is converted to thread by a charka and is loaded as warp which is called pavvu. It is then loaded into the loom for actual weaving. It is rolled over small sticks to use for weaving weft. One pavvu can make 6 sarees. It will take approximately 2 months to complete the weaving of one pavvu. Kondalampatti handloom sarees are traditionally woven in the interlocked-weft technique.

Design The design required on the saree is initially drawn in a computer and then punched into a card and these cards are loaded in the Jacard in the loom. Jacard is a box like structure which is fixed in the top of the loom. There will be needles in the Jacard which will read the punched cards and control the weaving of weft and weave according to the design.

TATTOOING

BAIGAS

Baiga is a tribe found in Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand states of India. The largest number of Baigas are found in Baiga-chuk in Mandla district and Balaghat district of Madhya Pradesh. Their sub-castes are Bijhwar, Narotia, Bharotiya, Nahar, Rai Bhaina, and Kadh Bhaina. The Baiga tribes practice shifting cultivation in forest areas. They say that they never plough the Earth, because it would be akin to scratching the breast of their Mother and they could never ask their Mother to produce food from the same patch of earth time and time again. Baigas used to live a semi-nomadic life and practiced Bewar, or ‘dahiya’ cultivation, out of respect, not aggression. These techniques, rather than being a cause of deforestation, have been shown to be effective

conservation devices, employed for centuries by tribal peoples. Courageous woodsman and hunters, the Baigas of Central India were reluctant to do work for others. They saw themselves as people of the forest, who could only live on the produce of the forest. It was below the dignity of a Baiga to become a labourer. Baigas do not interact, even with other tribals like the Gonds, as interaction with any other tribe is a crime for them. After a death in the family, the Baigas leave the house and build another one. Tattooing is an integral JUNE 2016 | WWW.WISHESH.COM

part of their lifestyle. This tribe inhabits in the dense hilly forests in the eastern part of the Satpuras, in Shahdol, Bilaspur, Rajnandgaon, Mandla, and Balaghat districts. The Baigas are of Dravidian stock and are one of the eight prime tribes of M.P.

It is believed that this tribe is an offshoot of the Bhuiya tribe of Chhota Nagpur. A distinguishing feature of the Baiga tribe is that their women are famous for sporting tattoos of various kinds on almost all parts of their body. The women who work as tattooing artists belong to the Ojha, Badni and Dewar tribes of M.P., and are called Godharins. They are extremely knowledgeable about the different types of tattoos preferred by various tribes. Their mothers traditionally pass on this knowledge to them. Tattooing amongst the tribals commences with the approach of winter and continues until summer. The ancestors of the Baigas spoke an Austroasiatic language, however no trace of it is left now. Some Baigas have mentioned “Baigani� as their mother tongue. Baigani is now

recognized as a variety of Chhattisgarhi influenced by Gondi and Western Hindi. Most Baigas communicate with outsiders in Hindi and some of them also knows a few local languages like Gondi or Marathi depending on the region they live in. Baigas eat coarse grain, kodo and kutki, drink pej, eat little flour. One of the prime foods is pej that can be made from grounding macca or from the water left from boiling rice. This food is much better and healthier than many other food that they eat. They eat several items from the forest that includes primarily Chirota Bhaji, Gular leaves such as Chirota, chinch, chakora, sarroota, peepal etc. They also eat BirarKand, Kadukand and other rhizomes. Mushroom is also a delicacy. Numerous fruits such as mango, char, jamun, tendu are also eaten. They hunt as well, primarily fish and small mammals.

Krishna

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JUNE 2016


One day krishna was playing with his friends in the courtyard of the house. Yasoda was busy cooking in the kitchen. Suddenly Balarama rushed to her and said,

“Mother, Mother, Krishna has eaten mud.”Yasoda did not believe him. But the other friends also said, “Yes, mother, he ate in front of all of us even though we forbade him”. Yasoda was irritated by Krishna’s new prank. Her house had every kind of sweets. Why then should the restless boy eat mud? She rushed to Krishna, caught hold of him.

Let me look into it,” said Yasoda. Challenged by his mother, Krishna, opened his mouth. Ah! What did mother Yasoda see in his mouth! Inside her son’s mouth, she saw the whole universe.

But child Krishna protested. “Mother” he said, “I have not eaten any mud. They are all liars. If you want, look into my mouth.”

There was the whole earth, heaven, sun, moon, stars and everything else! All the gods and goddesses were there. There was also a strange light in the mouth. She saw the whole Gokula too inside the mouth. She saw also herself sitting inside his mouth and examining the open mouth of her darling boy. She could not believe that within the mouth of her son such things could appear. Yet she was seeing them! She was struck with fear and wonder.

“All right, open your mouth.

She pondered, “I am not

She said: “You mischievous fellow! Why did you eat mud? Your friends and even Balarama say so.”

dreaming, my eyes are open. I am actually seeing what is happening before. So this vision must be due to some divine power of my son, as predicted by Gargamuni.” She surrendered herself to the Lord and prayed to Him to protect her child. When we are beset by some problems for which we can find no solution, there is no alternative except to surrender to the Supreme Lord and offer Him our respectful obeisance. This was the means adopted by the intelligent Yasoda. Lord Krishna cast the spell of his Maya again on her and once more appeared like a small child to her eyes. As one forgets everything after a dream, Mother Yasoda too forgot the entire incident. As her natural feeling of affection was again roused, she took the child on her lap and fondled him.

Healthy habits leads to healthy living Healthy people are successful not because of good luck, birth order or family heritage, but because they have adopted the right habits.

T

To become a successful person, you must adopt the habits of success. By emulating the habits of successful people, anyone can enjoy the life he or she desires. Learn the habits, adopt the habits, practice the habits and enjoy the success. The majority of the healthy people say that they eat virtually the same meals every day, mostly the same breakfast, same lunch, same dinner. They did not suggest that they eat exactly the same for every meal, but they often chose from three, maybe four things that they like for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Eating small meals more often reduces cortisol levels,

research suggests. When you eat small, frequent meals, the body becomes efficient at keeping cortisol levels low, which helps both men and women reduce belly fat. Guided by their nutritional needs and deeply rooted habit to eat small meals throughout the day, the superfit stand steadfast. Successful healthy people tend to eat mainly whole, unprocessed foods, including fruits, veggies and whole grains. Whole, natural foods like apples, steel-cut oatmeal, broccoli, salads, brown rice are what food researchers call low-density foods. They contain lots of fiber, which satisfies hunger with few calories. High-density foods

are the opposite, they are things like butter, oils, candy or ice cream. Try to know, every food’s calories and approximate protein, carbohydrate and fat content. This skill helps in making better food choices on a moment’s notice. If you look into a successfully healthy person’s fridge, pantry, or cupboards, you won’t be able to find cookies, crackers, chips, chocolate, full-fat ice cream, or soda. These simple habit if cultivated can help you in having a healthy living. Habits are what prompting one to have the choice of healthy food for a healthy life.

India, US to hold

working visa fee hike talks on

The commerce ministry has said that the increase in visa fees, sought to be justified by the Barack Obama administration as a revenue raising measure for better border control, gives other countries also the opportunity to raise money whenever the World Trade Organisation gives space to do so.

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JUNE 2016


The United States’ “revenue raising” move to double the fees for short-term H-1B and L-1visas will be countered during two-day consultations beginning in Washington on Wednesday. “If they are using it as a revenue resource raising measure, then it opens the Pandora’s box for us also to generate money whenever a difference exists between the WTO’s applied and bound rates,” a commerce department official said. “There is a general feeling that when everyone is talking of trade liberalisation, the US’ measure is trade restrictive. Industry feels that this has hit

their operations,” the official said. The increase in H-1B and L-1 visa fee issue has been raised with the US at various levels including by the Prime Minister with the US President and recently by the Finance Minister with the US Trade Representative, Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said. In a letter to US Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker and Deputy National Security Advisor Caroline Atkinson, the Commerce and Industry Ministry had said, “it was requested not to incorporate such discriminatory and punitive

measures into legislations without due process of notice and comment, as it would seriously impede the on going efforts to take the India-US bilateral trade and investment relationship forward”. “India has also taken up the matter on US visa fee hike in the dispute settlement body of the WTO,” she said. With this legislation in place, 50:50 companies would now need to pay an enhanced fee of $4500 for each L-1 visa and $4000 for each H-1B visa as compared to $2250 and $2000 previously.

Barack Obama to call for

Nuclear weapons free planet

Obama the first American president to visit Hiroshima -– the site of the first nuclear attack by the US on Japan -– later this month will give a call for nuclear weapons-free planet. He will be the first sitting US president to tour the site where America first dropped an atomic bomb in 1945, killing an estimated 140,000 people.

“If you would have imagined that one of our closest partners and allies in Asia was Japan just 70 years ago, it would have been very difficult to imagine, given the hostilities between our two countries. But yet that’s exactly what has occurred, based on a commitment of the leaders of our two countries to forge closer bonds. We’ve also seen deeper ties between our peoples. And even as we speak, there are thousands of US military service members who are stationed in Japan,” Earnest said. “All of this is a testament to the way that the US-Japan relationship has dramatically changed over the last 70 years and the president is certainly interested in further marking the progression of that relationship by visiting Hiroshima,” he said. “The President will have an opportunity to visit the Peace Park, and offer up


“President Obama has been a tireless leader in the global effort to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons, and I commend him and the Administration for their strong focus on this vital challenge for global peace and security,” Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said. “I commend President Obama’s decision to visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial which serves as a poignant reminder of the

devastating cost of nuclear warfare, especially on civilian communities,” Senator Mazie K Hirono said. “We applaud President Obama’s decision to visit Hiroshima, in part to recognise the innocent victims of war and in particular the experience and work of atomic bomb survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki — the hibakusha — who have worked tirelessly to remind the world why nuclear weapons must never be used again,” said Daryl G Kimball, executive director of the independent, non-partisan Arms Control Association. “It’s time for a US President to visit Hiroshima’s Peace Park in Japan to honour those who died during the atomic bombing and to affirm the goal of a nuclear weapons free world. At this point, it’s not enough to repeat the words Obama has said several times since his historic Prague speech calling for the abolishment of nuclear weapons. Obama

must announce actions he will take in his remaining months as President that will actually bring the world closer to being free of nuclear weapons,” it said. “In a complex world of unsolved old problems and mounting new challenges, we have the vision and the ability to solve this one so that future generations might be spared from a nuclear attack. The President’s commemoration at Hiroshima will put this aspiration in stark relief,” Senator Ben Cardin said.

It means our country bears a special responsibility to lead the world in an effort to eliminate them. This goal of a nuclear weapons free world has been sought by both Democratic and Republican presidents. It is a goal that would make our country and our planet safer,” Earnest said.

This compares poorly to the other developed markets as the average wealth of a person in Australia has increased by over 100 per cent and in Canada by over 50 per cent in the same period.

In February 2010, the Congress-led UPA government had signed a contract with the UK-based helicopter manufacturing company AgustaWestland to purchase 12 AW101 helicopters for the Indian Air Force for Rs 3,600 crore. These choppers were supposed to be used for flying the President of India, the Prime Minister, and other such VVIPs. In February 2013, Italian police arrested Agusta Westland CEO Bruno Spagnolini and Guiseppe Orsi, chairman of AgustaWestland’s parent company Finmeccanica, on charges of paying bribes to win the VVIP chopper deal with the Indian Air Force. This led to the UPA government putting a hold on the deal. The then Defence Minister AK Antony ordered a CBI probe into the matter.

Pritilata Waddedar was the answer for the European club’s infamous board - “Dogs and Indians not allowed”. Pritilata Waddedar was born on 5th May 1911 in a much culturally advanced middle class family at Dhalghat Village in Chittagong.

P

Pritilata Waddedar parents were Sri Jagabandhu Waddadar and Smt. Pratibha Waddadar who arranged for the best possible education for their daughter in Dr. Khastogir’s school directly in class III where she was awarded scholarship in class III which proved her genre and brillance. She passed Matriculation Examination, in 1928 and she got admitted in Eden College in Dhaka and she passed I. A. Examination. She came to Kolkata for her graduation in English and was admitted in famous Bethune College and came out successful in B. A. examination. After completion of her graduation she was appointed directly as the Headmistress of Aparna Charan Girls’ School in Chittagong (Chattogram). Pritilata had a keen desire to give her contribution for the freedom struggle and the destiny gave her the

opportunity through her colleague Kalpana Dutta who has introduced Pritilata to the great revolutionary leader Surya Sen. Surya Sen was reluctant to include Pritilata in his group, but her determination to eliminate British supremacy was so firm, so that Surya Sen finally accepted Pritilata as the woman comrade and a member in his revolutionary group. Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi was a role model and an inspirational force for Pritilata to sacrifice her life for the liberation of motherland. It was Pritilata’s intelligence, strategy and efforts that helped Surya Sen and other members to attack the armoury raid, telegraph office, railway lines and make the uprising of Chittagong successful. To avenge the death of innocent teenage comrades in Jalalabad encounter,

Surya Sen’s next strategy was to attack the Pahartali European club which had a board titled – Dogs and Indians are not allowed. Surya Sen selected Pritilata to lead this plan along with a team to attack the European club on September 23rd 1932. Pritilata succeeded in attacking the European club, but in the bloody encounter, Pritilata was fatally wounded and there was no way to escape from the Britishers. Pritilata commanded her members to run away from the spot and preferred to sacrifice her life for her motherland. Pritilata ended her life by swallowing potassium cyanide and her martyrdom became a great motivation for several women to plunge in the freedom struggle. At the age of 21, Pritilata had given up her valuable life for our motherland.

Long term

Relationship are healthy

Every successful relationship is successful in it’s own unique way. A successful long-term relationship include everything from personality traits such as your emotional temperament, social style, values and even your beliefs, to one of the more commonly sought after qualities - a sense of humour. Remember the old adage “nobody’s perfect”. When you fall for someone, your initial attraction can stop you noticing your new partner’s flaws or at least override them. But as things progress, you learn more about each other both the good and the bad. There are various stages to a relationship. As you look to make someone a part of your life for long-term, you may question whether the relationship is right for you. Going slow diminishes the risk of that. Being true to yourself is crucial to making a relationship last. Being honest with yourself about what you want out of life and out of your relationship is a must. Be mindful to tell the truth when asked and do your best to be upfront. You may need to make room for your

partner in your life, but not at the expense of everything else. No need to compromise your independence. Quality time in any form is important in making a relationship last. Don’t be afraid to let your guard down. If you’re hiding your feelings, don’t expect your other half to be a mind reader. Spend time together just talking. Everyday courtesies are easy to maintain and provide a low key, but effective way of letting your other half know that you are valued and cared for. The same goes for those little things, touches, kisses, hand-holding, small, inexpensive gifts, that longterm couples can sometimes take for granted to the point where they stop doing them.

The Gurjara-Pratiharas were instrumental in containing Arab armies from moving east of the Indus River. Nagabhata I defeated the Arab army under Junaid and Tamin in the Battle of Rajasthan. Under Nagabhata II, the Gurjara-Pratiharas became the most powerful dynasty in northern India. Nagabhata II was succeeded by his son Ramabhadra, who ruled briefly, and was succeeded by his son Mihira Bhoja I. Under Bhoja and his successor Mahendrapala I, the Pratihara Empire reached its peak of prosperity and power.

The expansion once again triggered the power struggle for the control of the Indian Subcontinent, known as the Tripartite Struggle, with the Rashtrakuta Empire and Pala Empire. During this period, Imperial Pratihara took the title Maharajadhiraja of Aryavarta (Great King of Kings of Northern India). The power of the Pratiharas was weakened by dynastic strife. It was further diminished as a result of a great raid from the Deccan, WWW.WISHESH.COM | JUNE 2016

that effectively barred the progress of the Muslims beyond the confines of Sindh, their first conquest for nearly three hundred years. In the light of later events this might be regarded as the “Chief contribution of the Gurjara Pratiharas to the history of India�.

A Winged Reusable Launch Vehicle technology Demonstrator (RLV-TD) has been configured to act as a flying test bed to evaluate various technologies, namely, hypersonic flight, autonomous landing, powered cruise flight and hypersonic flight using airbreathing propulsion. The first in the series of experimental flights is the hypersonic flight experiment (HEX) followed by the landing experiment (LEX), return flight experiment (REX) and scramjet propulsion experiment (SPEX). Reusable Launch Vehicle Technology Demonstrator Hypersonic Experiment (RLV-TD HEX1) is wherein the hypersonic aero-thermo dynamic characterization of winged re-entry body along with autonomous mission management, to land at a specified location and characterization of hot structures are planned to be demonstrated.

Reusable Launch Vehicle – Technology Demonstrator (RLV-TD) is one of the most technologically challenging endeavors of ISRO towards developing essential technologies for a fully reusable launch vehicle to enable low cost access to space. The configuration of RLV-TD is similar to that of an aircraft and combines the complexity of both launch vehicles and aircraft. RLV-TD consists of a fuselage (body), a nose cap, double delta wings and twin vertical tails. It also features symmetrically placed active control surfaces called Elevons and Rudder. This

technology demonstrator was boosted to Mach no: 5 by a conventional solid booster (HS9) designed for low burn rate.

The Mahindra XUV500 W6 automatic gets to draw power from the same 2.2-litre, four-cylinder mHawk diesel engine that produces 140bhp at 3750rpm and 320Nm of torque

available between 1600-2800rpm. The motor comes paired to the second generation 6-speed automatic gearbox sourced from AISIN, Japan. Compared to the top-trims, the W6 automatic variant misses out on certain features including reverse parking camera with dynamic assist, express up and down driver side window, smart key with remote central locking, illuminated key rings, door ajar lamps, camping lamp and much more.

cold, loud and soft, sweet and sour and the like. They are solely dependent upon external objects and these objects are always coming and going, they are known to be temporary and thus should be tolerated. One being situated in spiritual knowledge should with fortitude tolerate them and not succumb to lamentation or exaltation because of them.

In the proper discharge of duty, one has to learn to tolerate nonpermanent appearances and disappearances of happiness and distress. Verse meaning O son of Kunti, the nonpermanent appearance of happiness and distress, and their disappearance in due course, are like the appearance and disappearance of winter and summer seasons. They arise from sense perception, O scion of Bharata, and one must learn to tolerate them without being disturbed.

Explanation In the proper discharge of duty, one has to learn to tolerate nonpermanent appearances and disappearances of

happiness and distress. One has to follow the prescribed rules and regulations of religious principles in order to rise up to the platform of knowledge, because by knowledge and devotion only can one liberate himself from the clutches of maya (illusion). A great heritage brings responsibility in the matter of proper discharge of duties. The objects of the senses perceived is called matra or the functions of the senses which are hearing, seeing, smelling, touching and tasting. Their contact with their appropriate objects produces the sensations of hot and

In the absence of selfrealisation, there is always sorrow. Therefore it is clarified thus, matra means sensuous experience and sparsas means contact with them. Thus matra-sparsas is the interaction of the senses with sense objects. When the individual consciousness is deluded into relating to itself as the body, pleasure and the pain is experienced, but when the individual consciousness sees itself as separate from the physical body then the sorrow arising from the death of friends and relatives would not arise. It is by rejection of ones constitutional position as individual consciousness and accepting the position of considering oneself the body that the perception of pleasure, pain, happiness, sorrow and all the rest manifests.

Akshaya Trithiya auspicious day of

betterment and prosperity WWW.WISHESH.COM | JUNE 2016


Akshaya Tritiya is considered as the most golden day of the year because the word Akshaya means the most “Eternal” that which never diminishes. Akshaya Tritiya is also known as Akha Teej and is an highly auspicious day for Hindu communities. It falls during Shukla Paksha Tritiya in the month of Vaishakha.

A

Akshaya Tritiya falling on a Rohini Nakshatra day with Wednesday is considered very auspicious. The word Akshaya means never diminishing. Hence the benefits of doing any Japa, Yajna, Pitra-Tarpan, DanPunya on this day never diminish and remain with the person forever.

Kubera received his wealth and position as custodian of wealth and property with Goddess Lakshmi on this day, by praying to Lord

Akshaya Tritiya is believed to bring good luck and success. Akshaya Tritiya brings prosperity and wealth in the future. It is believed that, on this day Veda Vyas began to write Mahabharata. Jains celebrate this day to commemorate Tirthankara Rishabha’s ending of oneyear fast by consuming sugarcane juice poured into his cupped hands.

Shiva at Shivapuram. It is traditionally observed as the birthday of Parashurama, the sixth incarnation of god Vishnu.

According to Hindu mythology, on this day the Treta Yuga began and the river Ganges, the most sacred river of India, descended to the earth from the heaven. It was on this day that Goddess Annapoorna devi was born.

The most popular story regarding the celebration of Akshaya Tritiya is about Lord Krishna and Sudama or Kuchela. Lord Karishna and Sudama were friends during their childhood. Sudama was so poor that his familly does not have enough to eat. One day he decided to visit his childhood friend Lord Krishna. Sudama did not have anything else except the pouch of Poha and he felt ashamed and hesitated to give it to Krishna. His poor

friend was overwhelmed by the hospitality shown by the Lord Krishna that he could not ask his friend for financial support. When he arrived at his home he saw that his run-down hut was converted into a palace and his family was wearing royal attire. Sudama knew that this was the blessing of his friend Krishna who blessed him with more wealth than he needed or could ever imagine. This is why Akshaya Tritiya is associated with material gains. Akshaya Tritiya, the third day of the bright-half of the lunar month of Vaisakha is considered one of the most sacred days of the year. In Odisha, on Akshay Tritiya day, farmers start ploughing their land and construction of chariots for Rath Yatra begins at Puri. In Bengal, on the day of the Akshay Tritiya, “HalKhata” - a ceremony to start the new audit book is performed - with the worship of Ganesha and goddess Lakshmi. JUNE 2016 | WWW.WISHESH.COM

Azhar

W

hen a biopic is being made as a film, more than the normal film, an extra attention is to be given to the subject, noting every minute detail correctly. But it seems that care was lost while making Azhar. Just like any other normal film, Azhar was made adding all the commercial ingredients, which finally made one forget that they are watching a biopic. Opened to the mixed reviews, the film could not sustain the run at the theaters. Emraan Hashmi could not step into the shoes of the star cricketer Azharuddin, but just showed himself on the screen. That was tasted bad and made a huge negative impact on the movie’s result.

arbjit is a female centric film with the male’s title. The 23 years struggle of Dalbir Kaur (Aishwarya Rai), to rescue her brother Sarbjit (Randeep Hooda0 is what the film all about. Aish is at her best in performance. The pain, aggressiveness, love and several such emotions she brought out through the character, surely deserves a loud applause. The horrible situations criminals face in the jails, and the pain they have for the family is showed in a deadly realistic way. Especially, the way Randeep screams out with Aish, about his position in the jail, squeezes the hearts of many. The movie gained a positive buzz right from the first day. Though it was away from the commercial elements, the film is still doing well with the notable collections.
