It has been a little over one year since our Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi launched Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. He has also decided that Centre/States will create about a hundred beautiful Cities with the necessary infrastructure and provide facilities which would be easily approachable by its residents
A ‘smart city’ is an urban region that is highly advanced in terms of overall infrastructure, sustainable real estate, communications and market viability. Information Technology should provide solutions in a secure fashion to manage a city’s assets – the city’s assets include, local department’s information systems, schools, libraries, transportation systems, hospitals, power plants, law enforcement, and other community services.

Aaj yek kitni badi vidambana he ki ‘betiyon’ ko apna lekh ka vishey bana kar kehna pad raha he
bina jinke hum samaaj ki kalpana hi nahin kar sakte uski hum hatya kar rahe hain.
Durbhagya hai is desh ka ki jagah jagah ‘Beti Bachaao Bet Padhaao’ ki is vishay par charchay ho rahe hain.
Mitro, unke dil se poocho jin ke ghar aulaad nahin he?
Bhikari bun kar woh Mandir Masjid Gurudwaaron per ja kar aulaad ki bheek maangte hain.
Jin ke ghar do do bete hain, Ik din bhikhaari to woh phir bhi ban jaate. Is vishay ka main aage khulasa karta hoon.
Ek baar mere ghar aa ke to dekh,
Ek baar mujhe apna bana ke to dekh,
Tere liye Sudaama ban jaaoonga,
Safed makkhan nahin to Amul Tujhe khilaaoonga.
Rath nahin to kya, Santro mein ghumaaoonga,
Teri khaatir Arjun main ban jaaonga,
Ration bazaar nahin, Mall mein ghumaaoonga,
Ek baar tu mere ghar aa ke to dekh,
Ek baar mujhe apna bana ke to dekh.

Life sometimes gives you a test even before you have had the time to study the lesson. That is what happened to me. –
It was the 15th of Nov 1973 that I had got married and my wife stepped into my life.
She was a calm and composed person and full of laughter. She smiled even during adverse conditions and was able to make this world a better place for me. It was mainly due to her positive attitude that we actually lived life with lots of Love, Care and Share.
Affectionately, I used to call her Rani and believe me that she was indeed taken care of like a Queen.
And like any other married couple, we too used to quarrel a lot.
She was a simple down-to-earth girl whose ‘wants’ were very few. She never demanded anything from me and never complained about anything. She was God-fearing, educated, a double-Post-Graduate and she had had the knack of taking every situation in her stride. Read the rest of this entry »

Two months from now, the people of United States have to choose between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama as to who would become their President in Nov 2012.
The choice will come down to the person, who can create the much needed jobs to eradicate the unemployment problem, tackle the financial situation and bring the country out of the financial mess which Obama had inherited from the previous regime. [Too many problems (incl recession & job losses) created by Bush are unnecessarily being attributed to Barack Obama.]They will have to make a choice between ‘Govt. of the rich, by the rich for the rich’ as propagated by Romney & Paul Ryan – on one hand AND – a Government for upliftment of the masses as proposed by Obama – on the other.
