हिन्दी दिवस

Hindi Day is celebrated every year on 14 September marking the declaration of the Hindi language as one of the official languages of Union government of India. On 14 September 1949, Hindi was adopted as one of the official languages of India.

Hindi Diwas is celebrated on the 14th of September, to commemorate the adoption of Hindi in Devanagari script as one of the official languages in different Hindi speaking states of India.

Hindi was adopted as one of the two official languages of the Republic of India by Constituent Assembly of India due to the efforts of Beohar Rajendra Simha along with Hazari Prasad Dwivedi, Kaka Kalelkar, Maithili Sharan Gupt and Seth Govind Das. As such, on the 50th birthday of Beohar Rajendra Simha on the 14th of September 1949, the efforts resulted in the adoption of Hindi as an official language.

This decision was ratified by the Constitution of India that came into effect on the 26th of January 1950. Under Article 343 of the Indian Constitution, Hindi written in Devanagari script was adopted as one of official languages. In all, there are 22 Scheduled languages of India.

LEARNING BIRDS # 18

Grey-headed canary-flycatcher

Spotted at: Keoladeo National Park, Ghana Bird Sanctuary, Bharatpur, Rajasthan

The grey-headed canary-flycatcher (Culicicapa ceylonensis), sometimes known as the grey-headed flycatcher, is a species of small flycatcher-like bird found in tropical Asia. It has a square crest, a grey hood and yellow underparts. They are found mainly in forested habitats where they often join other birds in mixed-species foraging flocks. Pairs are often seen as they forage for insects by making flycatcher-like sallies and calling aloud. Several subspecies are recognized within their wide distribution range. In the past the genus Culicicapa was considered to be an Old World flycatcher but studies have found them to belong to a new family designated as the Stenostiridae or fairy flycatchers that include the African genera Stenostira and Elminia.

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF CHARITY

https://www.un.org/en/observances/charity-day

The International Day of Charity is an international day observed annually on 5 September. It was declared by the United Nations General Assembly in 2012. The prime purpose of the International Day of Charity is to raise awareness and provide a common platform for charity related activities all over the world for individuals, charitable, philanthropic and volunteer organizations for their own purposes on the local, national, regional and international level.

The International Day of Charity was conceived as a Hungarian civil society initiative supported by the Hungarian Parliament and Government in 2011, to enhance visibility, organize special events, and in this way to increase solidarity, social responsibility and public support for charity.

September 5 was chosen in order to commemorate the anniversary of the passing away of Mother Teresa at Calcutta, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 “for work undertaken in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress, which also constitute a threat to peace.”

On 17 December 2012, in response to a proposal by Hungary, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution by consensus to designate 5 September as the International Day of Charity. The resolution was co-sponsored by 44 UN Member States  representing all five Regional Groups of the United Nations.

In its resolution, the General Assembly invited Member States, organizations of the United Nations system and other international and regional organizations, stakeholders, as well as NGOs of the civil society, to commemorate the International Day of Charity in an appropriate manner, by encouraging charity, including through education and public awareness-raising activities.

TEACHERS’ DAY

Sand art by Sudarsan Pattnaik

Teachers’ Day is a special day for the appreciation of teachers, and may include celebrations to honour them for their special contributions in a particular field area, or the community in general.

The idea of celebrating Teachers’ Day took root in many countries during the 19th century; in most cases, they celebrate a local educator or an important milestone in education. This is the primary reason why countries celebrate this day on different dates, unlike many other International Days.

In India the birthday of our second president Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (5 September) is celebrated as Teachers’ Day since 1962.

मोबाइल ने क्या छीना..

gangay's blog


उदारीकरण के बाद मोबाइल का प्रचलन एक चमत्कार से कम न था एक समय था मोबाइल भीड़ में बज जाये लोग देखने लगते थे। मोबाइल अच्छी स्टेटस का प्रतीक था। वैसे देखा जाय तो पहले से फोन था किंतु सबसे बड़ा परिवर्तन मोबाइल लेकर आया।

मोबाइल के प्रचलन से अन्तर्देशी,चिट्ठी (पत्र या पाती),टार्च,घड़ी,रेडियों, कैल्कुलेटर,कैंपस के साथ दो लोगों के बीच के इंतजार को खत्म कर दिया । किसी को कुछ सामान किसी माध्यम से पहुँचाना होता तो लोग बता देते फला ट्रेन से इस नाम के व्यक्ति जा रहे है इस कलर का कपड़ा पहने है आप उनसे स्टेशन पर इस जगह मिल लेना।

मोबाइल ने सम्बन्धों में खलल डाल दिया है। आप को लगेगा कि कैसे देखिये मनुष्य में क्रोध और राग दोनों है । मान लीजिए दो लोगों किसी बात पर अनबन हो गयी या किसी बात से नाराज है एक काल करके गुस्सा करने से सम्बन्ध खत्म।

TOWARDS A FUTURE STEEPED IN CONSCIOUSNESS

ashokbhatia

In the preceding post, we brought in focus the fact that the first step in the process of evolution is the act of creation of information, followed by the emergence of energy and matter. Their interaction creates the Cosmic Mind and the Cosmic Consciousness, which also comprises such other subsets as a human consciousness, or an animal’s consciousness, and the like.

Having explored different facets of Consciousness, we realize how woefully short our present methods of running businesses are when compared to the ideal situation we at the Conscious Enterprises Network (CEN) are aiming for.

Admittedly, there are silver linings to this dark cloud. These are in the form of several individuals and groups of people who are aware of this deficiency and wish to do something about it. Right from environmental activists to business groups which follow Plan B and aim for a triple-bottom surplus from operations, there are…

LETTER WRITING DAY

World Letter Writing Day was established by Richard Simpkin as a tribute to the joy and excitement he felt when a hand-written letter would arrive in his mailbox.

Letter Writing Day is all about paying tribute to the age-old form of communication; letter writing. Letter Writing Day presents you with a great opportunity to reconnect with people that you may not have spoken to for quite some time now. It also helps you to think before you write.
