NIYOG IS VEDIC NOT NOCTURNAL

                                 By Brigadier Chitranjan Sawant,VSM

PRAJANAN or Procreation is an inborn instinct of a living being. Humans, animals, fish, fowl and Vanaspati or Vegetation leave behind numerous living beings of their kind before they depart for good.

Right at the beginning of the Creation, Ishwar had given the Vedas to the Rishis for the guidance of human beings to lead a life of righteousness. Along with the Gyan of Life and desire to have children was the knowledge of providing stability of social order. Human beings stabilized process of procreation by formalizing the social institution of Vivah or marriage to bring in order and discipline  through sublimation of sex. The Vedic injunction against sex for pleasure by allowing copulation between lawfully wedded husband and wife at an appropriate time only to beget children continues to hold in check humans running amuck for wild sex.

Many a time varied reasons like death and disease cause separation between the husband and wife at a young age when they are childless, so what is the way out to enable the separated man or woman to fulfill the religious duty of leaving behind a son or a daughter so that the human race not only survives but prospers. Well the answer is NIYOG.

NIYOG  NUANCES

When a widow wishes to have children after the demise of her husband, she lets the social order know of her desire and selection of a male member for copulation as per Vedic Vidhan to beget a child, it is termed as Niyog. In the case of Niyog “ the widowed woman remains in the house of the deceased husband…..children born of Niyog are not called children of the begetter, nor belong to his family, nor has he any claim over the children.” This excerpt is taken from the Satyarth Prakash chapter four written by Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati in Hindi and translated into English by Pt Ganga Prasad Upadhyay.

In this context it is important to make clear the claim of the child born of Niyog on the property of the man who begot him or her. A child begotten in Niyog will continue the lineage of the deceased husband of the widow and get a share in the property of the deceased husband of the widow concerned and live in her marital home. Thus one may say that a child begotten in Niyog has no legal share in the property of the man whose sperm fertilized the egg of his mother to bring him into this world. Similarly, the begetter of the baby in Niyog will never ever lay a claim of any kind at birth or thereafter. In the eye of law, no relationship moral, spiritual or financial will exist between the begetter and the baby.

IS NIYOG A SIN

A doubting Thomas may raise a doubt about the legal validity of Niyog by pointing out the erroneous thought and labeling Noyog as adultery. Let it be understood that Niyog is not a sin nor an adulterous act. Niyog is willful and consensual act of sex between  a man and a woman with the sole intent of begetting a baby and it is done within the knowledge of the social order that the two belong to. It is not a hush-hush affair done for fun at night under the cover of darkness. The common point between a lawful marriage and a Niyog is  : Both are made known to the social order that the man and the woman belong to. Well, a question may arise: what happens if the first attempt to impregnate a woman fails? Well, there is no embargo on making a second or a third attempt. One should remember that the declared desired intention of the man and the woman concerned is to have a baby and everyone in the neighbourhood knows about it. So, Niyog is not a sin or a crime because it is not done under the cover of darkness or in secrecy. On the other hand, adultery is a nocturnal affair where sex is performed for fun away from the prying eyes of the social or moral police, what to say of the State Police.

It would be a good idea to quote from the Satyarth Prakash  what Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati wrote in reply to a question about procedure to be followed in Niyog :

     “ Just as marriage is performed by proclamation, so is NIYOG. As marriage requires sanction of the society and consent of the couple, so does Niyog. When a man and a woman want to perform Niyog, they ought to declare before men and women of their families that they want to enter into Niyog relation for the sake of issues, that they will sever their connection when the purpose of Niyog is fulfilled, that they should be counted as sinners and be penalized by the society and the State if they do otherwise, that they will meet for intercourseonly once a month and will abstain from intercourse for a year after the conception.

 ( The translation from Hindi into English is done by Pt Ganga Prasad Upadhyay, an eminent Vedic scholar and preacher par excellence)

The Rishivar, a great religious and social reformer, was determined to apprise people of Bharat and later of the world the correct concept of Vedic Dharma and encourage both the Vedic Dharmis and others to follow what the Vedas laid down. That is the only way our human race may show an improvement.The observant Swami knew what way the sinners were going and reforming them was his duty, he thought. He advocated Niyog with the same fervor as the age-old institution of marriage – the Vedic Vivah. He equated the two procedures as the way to procreate. Sexual intercourse was the only way to procreate and one should not have a sense of shame or Lajja in advocating propagation of Niyog.

In the fourth chapter of the Satyarth Prakash dwelling on Niyog, Rishivar wrote and I quote him in original Hindi :

      “ Niyam se Vivah hone se ( stree-Purush ka sambhog – bracketed words are mine) vyabhichar nahi kahata, to niyampoorvak NIYOG hone se vyabhichar nahi kahavega………Ved shastrokt Niyog mein vyabhichar, paap, lajja na manana chahiye”

A free rendering into English would run thus: If a man and a woman are married as per the laid down procedure( their cohabitation would not be called promiscuity), likewise Niyog done as per procedure would not be termed promiscuity.      Niyog performed as per Vedic and Shastriya procedure would not be termed promiscuity entailing sin and shame.

It can be safely said that the Seer of the Arya Samaj knew that the sexual instinct of human beings led them astray. The Hindu widows were at the receiving end and quite oppressed socially. Their social and economic condition would improve if they were socially permitted to beget children and have a hope in the future. Therefore, Maharishi Dayanand strongly advocated through his writings and speeches the reintroduction of Niyog in our socio-religious order.

FUTURE OF NIYOG

As of now the social acceptance of Niyog in the Hindu social order is rather dismal. The forward looking socio-religious organization like the Arya Samaj, founded by Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati in 1875 in Mumbai did not spearhead the movement. In 1877 with the establishment of the Arya Samaj in Lahore, the Punjab became its citadel. However, it was rather unfortunate that the Arya stalwarfs including Pradhans of the Arya Samaj Anarkali, Lahore like Lala Saindas, Mahatma Hansraj and others were rather lukewarm to the concept of Niyog. It was socially unacceptable in the open parlance but practiced clandestinely without flying the flag of Niyog.

Like the Garbhadhan Sanskar, the Niyog too could not gain popularity as men and women devoted to the Ten Principles of the Arya Samaj were rather diffident in declaring that on a particular day or night they would be sharing the bed with the avowed aim of begetting a child. What if the effort failed and conception did not take place? The couple might become the laughing stock of the persons known and unknown. Thus performing a Havan for Garbhadhan or with the declared intention of Niyog requires a lot of social courage that they lacked. Therefore, both these SANSKARS REMAINED A THEORETICAL EXERCISE CONFINED TO THE PAGES OF THE SANSKAR VIDHI AND THE SATYARTH PRAKASH.

LION HEARTED PATRIOTS AT KARGIL

AUM
LION HEARTED PATRIOTS AT KARGIL
By Brigadier Chitranjan Sawant,VSM
Twenty years ago we Indians fought a war at Kargil against wily Pakistanis to evict them from our land that they had surreptitiously occupied during winter season contrary to an understanding between the two nations. We won the fiercely fought war from May to July 1999 and it was on 26th July that our Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee declared that the Kargil and adjoining areas were vacated by the intruders. Thereafter every 26 July is marked for celebration as Kargil Vijay Divas. We are observing the Twentieth anniversary of our victory over Pakistan this year.
Indeed it was a military, political and diplomatic victory of ours. Our three armed forces and the civil administration had whole heartedly united to achieve the great goal. Of course, different names were given by the three services. The Army called it Operation Vijay, the Air Force named it Operation Safed Sagar and the Navy called it Operation Talwar. The Navy’s role was rather limited in blocking the Karachi Port during the period of conflict.
Let us deal with the role of the Indian Air Force and then move on to the Indian Army for the biggest slice of the cake.
The Indian Air Force flew as many as 5,000 sorties over Kargil and the adjoining territory to bomb, rocket and strafe the Pakistan Army soldiers and their cohorts, terrorists and sundry infiltrators. Mig 21, Mig 29, and mainly Mirage 2000 were our main war horses. The daredevil pilots of Mirages flew at an elevation of 32,000 ft above sea level to carry on their assigned missions. They did precision target practice to destroy the enemy supply dumps and break their morale. Pakistan had no wherewithal to counter the fierce attack of our Mirage 2000 fighter-bomber jets. It put a stop to the supply line of the enemy of fighting munitions, weaponry, ration and sundry supplies. Their troops came to such a sorry state of affairs that they were forced to subsist on sugar rations alone. It broke their back and will to fight.
Operation Safed Sagar of our Air Force was indeed a turning point. It has been termed as a landmark in military aviation.
The Indian Army walks away with the cake and the credit for winning the Kargil war rightly goes to the wisdom and valour of officers and Jawans of the Indian Army. Our officers and men suffered serious casualties and privations but they fought on with high morale. Patriotism was the main motivating factor for them to kill the enemy and throw them out of our land.
The Indian journalists also played their important role. Both print and TV journalists risked their lives to do objective reporting from the frontline boosting the morale of our troops. Many a time the diehard journos incurred the ire of top brass of the military owing to objective and truthful reporting even to the point of criticizing the burra sahibs for their lack of imaginative planning , preparation and execution of plans. Some of journos were on the verge of being thrown out of the theatre of war but their objective coverage of battles fought and won earned them grateful thanks of junior officers and jawans. So much so that the troops shared their rations and helmets to provide sustenance and protection to scribes from enemy fire. Indeed a fine example of bon-homie it was.
Our Army made a break through with the capture of Tololing peak and the finale was occupation of the Tiger Hills by evicting the enemy. Of course, in these military operations our Army suffered many casualties. Some brave hearts made the supreme sacrifice but that encouraged their soldiers to battle on. Four of them were awarded Param Vir Chakra for displaying chivalry beyond the call of duty.
Caot Vikram Batra of 13, Jammu and Kashmir Rifles and Lt Manoj Pande of the first battalion, 11 Gorkha Rifles fulfilled their assigned task despite making the supreme sacrifice eventually. One major peak there is named after Capt Vikram Batra as Batra top and beckons all ranks to move on and on until the goal s achieved. Vikram had a sense of humour too. When his senior officers asked him to take some rest from his arduous mission, he jokingly replied “ Yeh Dil Mange More” and pressed on with the dangerous tasks.
The other two awardees of the Param Vir Chakra were sepoys or riflemen who lived on and on to fulfil the mission of killing the enemy and getting them out of our areas. Grenadier Yogendra Singh Yadav of the 18 Grenadiers is a brilliant example of a military hero. The other soldier of grit and determination who carried the day was Rifleman Sanjay Kumar of 13, JAK Rifles. Both are Junior Commissioned Officers now and march past the Rashtrapati in their jeeps on every Republic Day. Indeed they are perennial sources of inspiration to our new generations.
Indeed there are many officers and soldiers who were killed in action. They made the supreme sacrifice while on duty to protect our motherland from intruders, terrorists and undeclared enemies. Their names are engraved on a Memorial Wall at Dras and many hundreds of visitors pay their Shraddhanjali to them. The Kargil War Memorial at Dras is worth visiting. The place of pilgrimage is a perpetual source of inspiration to our youth. The Army organizes visits of students and kith and kin of those who are no more with us to enable them to pay their obeisance to the loved ones who made an exit from this world while doing their duty.
The Kargil War Memorial at Dras records names of martyrs. It epitomizes the valour and wisdom of officers and Jawans who cared for Bharat and paid little heed to their own safety. Indeed we are proud of them.
It would be befitting to record here that as many as 524 brave Indians in uniform find a place here on the Roll of Honour. The enemy had lost 700 plus men in their misadventure. We as good soldiers buried the enemy dead because their own countrymen refused to accept their mortal remains for the last rites. Of course under political pressure of Pakistan top brass they came down on their knees begging for the bodies of men who mattered.
Let there be no meaningless bloodshed. We do not go to war of our own volition but if it is thrust on us by wily enemies like Pakistan, we do not shirk our duty to our country. The good Indian men and women are always prepared to do the utmost for the motherland. Maryada Purshottam Shri Ram told his Lanka admiring compatriots that our Mother and Motherland take precedence over Heaven:
JANANI JANMABHUMISHCH SWARGADAPI GARIYASI.

GREENING OUR AREA IS OUR DHARMA

AUM
GREENING AREA AROUND IS OUR DHARMA
By Brigadier Chitranjan Sawant,VSM

An Acharya of a Gurukul sent out the Brahmacharis into the forest around looking for foliage or creepers that were of little use to human beings and animals inhabiting the Tapovan and areas around. After a day or so all of them except one returned and reported to the Acharya that the foliage was of little use except presenting a green look to viewers. After a couple of days returned the Brahmachari who had stayed back for an intensive research and said with aplomb that the entire vegetation in and around Tapovan was of immense benefit to both manushya and pashu for promoting health and happiness. The Acharya patted his back and said that his finding was in accordance with the analysis and research outcome of the great botanists and physicians of repute. The entire greenery could be put to some use or the other for the betterment of living beings.
The Vedic mantra on Peace encourages human beings to emulate Vanaspati and Aushadhi to imbibe the Peace that emanates from them. The relevant segment of the Ved mantra runs thus:
AUM…..aapah shantih aushadhayah shantih vanaspatayah shantih…..sama shantiredhi
A free rendition into English would be like this :
O Ishwar! May the water, the medicinal herbs, the vegetation pass on the Peace that they possess to us the humans…
It is interesting to note that the water, medicinal herbs, the vegetation in general are at peace with the universe and , therefore, the Man prays to the Almighty that the prevailing peace of the greenery around may be passed on to him for his Peace. Thus the greenery around is indeed promoting Peace. The more the Man takes on the duty of greening the area around his habitat the more peaceful will he be. It is the inner peace, it is the outer peace, it is being at peace with yourself, with fellow human beings, the four legged creatures and also with the environment.
No wonder Rishis of yore laid an emphasis on achieving and maintaining Shanti and Santulan, Peace and balance leading to equanimity of mind which in turn keeps lives of individuals and the society that they live in peaceful. It is Peace of mind, body and soul that leads to Happiness that we all long for.
The present day social system is in turmoil because Man has stopped paying attention to achieving and maintaining the desired equilibrium of Mind. The present day craze for acquiring objects of sensual pleasures disturbs the desired Peace and may lead to violence. The ever growing number of sexual assaults and amorous escapades are the direct result of human beings paying more attention to sensual pleasures now than achieving perfect peace and equilibrium of mind of self and transmitting it to society. If individuals are happy, the groups that the individuals live in are bound to be happy.
The human beings and the Nature around have to achieve the perfect balance where one does not disturb the other. If Man interferes with the flow of rivers, causes deforestation, promotes disappearance of Greenery, there is bound to be recurrence of earthquakes, blowing of sand storms, deserts swallowing the Green belt or residual of it and thereby making that part of planet Earth unlivable. The resultant migration of human population from arid land area to green vegetation may cause friction of interests leading to violence and disappearance of Peace from the lives of affected human beings.
One may ask a pertinent question: where is Land available around human habitation that may be turned into green orchards or pastures. The query is partly correct but not wholly. If one looks around one finds some unused landfills, the government controlled pieces of land lying barren. The big military cantonments may have training areas that may be made green. The railways too possess large pieces of land lying unused and arid. These may be made available to good intentioned citizens for Greening without transferring the proprietary rights. The arid land will be turned into green belts by volunteers who may not make an encroachment.
In the New Okhla Industrial Development Area many small and medium patches of land have been made Green by the residents by planting trees without building a permanent structure that may fall in the category of encroachment. It would be a good idea for the Administration to encourage such well intentioned citizens with a green finger by lending saplings of fruit trees and flowering creepers. Off and on a sarkari mali may be made available to lend a helping hand to the Samaritans who are senior citizens. Thus many desert like patches will be converted into green pastures and orchards without anyone dreaming of making an encroachment on public land.
May I sound a word of warning to those fellow human beings who are keen on making compost on a large scale by digging deep and large pits in the green belt. Apparently, the huge pits are dug for depositing trash and rubbish to make compost for gardening. The intention is noble but the compost in green belt emanates foul smell and breed insects that cause damage to the green plantation. It is suggested that large compost pits be dug in places that are far off from human habitation and plantation. What use will the compost be, if health of human beings is endangered by making compost in the inhabited area. The comost enthusiasts must maintain a good balance between making compost and promoting health and happiness of human beings inhabiting the compost designated areas. Suffice it to say that the health and happiness of human beings will take precedence over making compost. Let the balance or santulan be maintained always and everytime.
Thus we realize that Greening an area and achieving the state of balance are equally important. May we achieve our mission.

CHIVALRY AT SINHAGAD IN 1670

AUM
CHIVALRY AT SINHAGARH IN 1670
By Brigadier Chitranjan Sawant,VSM

Chivalry lives on, it never dies. One inherits it through folk songs, ballads and stories narrated from generation to generation. One brave fighter for freedom of the Marathas was Tanaji Malusare, a devotee of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. He is alive today in the annals of Maratha glory glowing in ballads of battlefield. Tanaji lived and died for his countrymen in an undying battle ballad told and retold generation after generation for over four centuries in Bharat and beyond shores of the Indian ocean. Our great hero breathed his last on the heights of the hilly fort called Kondana, renamed after our brave lion as Sinhagarh.
Sinhagad is located about 35 Km southwest of Pune, the cultural capital of Maharashtra. The legend has it that the fort was built about two thousand years ago and has been the epicenter if many battles recorded in history. The most notable battle was fought on the night of 4th February 1670 between the Marathas led by Tanaji Malusare for Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and the Moghuls led by Udaybhan Singh Rathore, the fort commander appointed by Mirza Raja Jaisingh I on behalf of Aurangzeb, the emperor. The Marathas won, they vanquished the Mughals but in the ferocious battle ending in hand to hand fight between Tanaji and Udaybhan, the former attained martyrdom after dispatching the latter to death. The victory was communicated to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj by a gunfire heard in Pune where the great Maratha awaited the good news in his Lal Mahal.
The Chhatrapati rode at breakneck speed to the fort but was stunned to se the silence around. When Suryaji, a brother of martyr Tanaji gave the joyous but sad message the Chhatrapati uttered the famous sentenced written in letters of gold, “Garh Aala, Pun Singh Gela”, THE FORT IS CONQUERED BUT THE LION IS GONE FOR EVER. He immediately renamed the Kondana fort as SINHGAD, THE NAME ETCHED IN ANNALS OF CHIVALRY.
TOPOGRAPHY OF FORT
Perched on an isolated cliff of the Bhuleshwar range of the Sahyadri range, Sinhgarh is 1312 meters high. It hhas been mostly controlled by the Marathas with a few gaps of time when invaders like the Moghuls and the East India Company had seized military control of the commanding fort dominating area around. By the way, the National Defence Academy, Khadakvasla is located in the valley below and cadets take delight in horse riding to the foothills or going on hikes there to be in the midst of Nature.
There are steep cliffs and except the footpath leading to the main gate, Kalyan Dwar and the other entry point is Pune Dwar. Since the two entry points are well guarded, it was rather difficult for Tanaji’s bravehearts numbering 399 to gain a successful entry there. Tanaji chose to climb the steep straight wall like hill with the help of a trained monitor lizad named, Yashwanti and the long rope tied thereon. He and the brave band of Marathas gained a Surprise entry into the fort and overpowered the Mughal sentries who were caught unawares. They thereafter opened the main entry points through which Tanaji’s brother, Suryaji and his brave Maratha warriors made a triumphant entry pouncing on the 5,000 Mughal soldiers. The Marathas carried the day but lost the valiant commander, Tanaji who made the supreme sacrifice for the cause of his king and country. The rest is history.
Of course, Chhatrapati Rajaram, younger son of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj had found refuge in Sinhagad when his capital, Satara was besieged by the enemy. Unfortunately, he expired there later on account of illness.
At the ntry to the fort, one comes across a bust of Tanaji Malusare, the great captain of men of valour. The tourists and visitors pay obeisance to the great man who conquered the fort displacing the Moghuls and made the saffron flag of the Marathas replace the Mughal flaf fulfilling the ardent wish of Mata Jijabai, the mother and motivator of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

LANDSLIDE VICTORY FOR MODI

AUM
NARENDRA MODI WON LAURELS
By Brigadier Chitranjan Sawant,VSM
Narendra Modi is the winner once again. He has won laurels. His giant size victory has crushed pygmies who were mouthing foul language against him all along. Calling an incumbent Prime Minister of India a thief just exposed the bad upbringing of the 48 year old head of a century plus old political party. The spoiled brat is called Rahul Gandhi. Let us talk about the positive points that went in favour of Narendra bhai Modi, a leader of the Bhartiya Janata Party and incumbent Prime Minister of India.
Modi’s victory in the 2019 polls have paled his own victory five years ago in 2014.The BJP plus has won 351 seats in the Lok Sabha and has left the Indian National Congress plus with a tally of just 92 seats miles behind. The so called Mahagathbandhan or the Grand Alliance of a number of insignificant political parties miles behind. No one is shedding tears for those who also ran.
MODI MODI ALL ALONG
The pass word that opened all doors is Modi Modi. The BJP sang praise of the great leader, the opposition in disarray heaped insults and false charges of criminality on the great leader. The Rahul Gandhi’s false charges in the slogan “ Chowkidar Chor Hai” boomeranged on the accuser and cohorts because Narendra Modi enjoyed an impeccable record of honesty all along. He was Chief Minister of Gujarat for 12 years and Prime Minister of India for five years before facing false charges of the corrupt brigade at the hustings in 2019. On the other hand all citizens were aware of record of dishonesty in public dealings of accuser and his immediate family for many generations. The false charges leveled against Modi by Rahul fell flat and caused no damage to the reputation of stalwarts of the Bhartiya Janata Party. This misadventure of Rahul Gandhi cost him and his party dearly and was a major factor in causing their inglorious defeat at the polls.
PAID PRESS
Articles in the Press making unfounded accusations against Narendra Modi and the Bhartiya Janata Party were seen as products of fake news or products of the paid press. The TIME magazine and New York Times of the United States of America carried articles against Modi nicknaming him as the Divider-in-Chief and spurious products of sick minds made no adverse impact on the minds of the electorate. Most of such anti-Modi press articles were written by Muslims, Christians or pseudo secular journalists on the pay roll of anti-Bharat lobby. The common man could see through sinister designs of anti-Hindu lobby funded by communists who had propped up “Tukde-Tukde Gang” dummy like Kanaihya Kumar who lost badly to Giriraj Singh from Beghu Sarai in Bihar.
The anti-Hindu press has not given prominence to the fact that many constituencies in Kerala, Assam, J&K and so on where Muslims form near 50% of the electorate have not returned BJP candidates to the LOK SABHA. Moral of the story is that under the guise of so called secularism the anti-national elements are promoting pro-Muslim agenda.
NATIONAL SECURITY AND NATIONALISM
The two go hand in hand. BJP has been giving utmost priority to National Security coupled with Nationalism. The Balakot strike in Pakistan by the Indian Air Force in response to the dastardly attack on the CRPF convoy in Pulwama boosted the morale of our countrymen and also the armed forces. On the other hand the then Congress governments took no action against Terror elements lest they lost the Muslim votes. The common man could foresee that the Congress party and its stalwarts votes were more important than national security and defence of the nation. The electorate punished the Congress party for this anti-national thought process and lack of resole to punish Pakistan for promoting Terror against India.
The Bhartiya Janata Party always gave top priority to National Security whereas the Congress party put it on the back burner. Rahul and band of pr0-Pakistan elements paid little attention to National Security of India and declared their intention of scrapping laws that promoted strong action against enemies of the nation. Consequently Rahul and men-women of similar thinking were punished by the nationalist lobby of Bharat. As you sow, so must you reap – so goes the age-old saying.
Men like Sam Pitroda wished away atrocities committed by the Congressmen on the Sikh citizens after assassination of India Gandhi by her Sikh security guards. “Hua toh Hua” was the casual way Sam Pitroda dismissed the serious issue of genocide committed by Congressmen. Shameful indeed.
It is because of sins of commission and omission of this nature that the perfunctory Mahagathbandhan where they shook hands but never brought their hearts and minds close to each other, were broken into smithereens at the first blow of the nationalist forces. The NYAYA slogan was just a smoke screen to cover the ANYAYA committed by the Gandhi family against the nationalist forces.
GIANT KILLERS
The BJP produced many contestants in these elections who won the proverbial title of Jack the Giant Killer. There were bloating images that needed to be punctured by real nationalist forces. The most prominent person in the list that deserves to be honoured for exposing the giant image of Rahul Gandhi and cutting him to size is none other than the Union Minister of Textiles, Smriti Irani. She punctured the bloated balloon of Amethi winner of past by defeating scion of Gandhi bastion by 54,000 plus votes. It is a creditable act of Smriti Irani and deserves to be mentioned in despatches. Smriti Ji is a person of determination who pursued her goal relentless ly until she achieved it. It may be recalled that she had lost the election to the same seat to the same opponent in 2014 but did not lose heart. She kept on nursing her constituency for five years and won the hearts and minds of the electorate.
Sadhavi Pragya Singh Thakur is another giant killer at the polls. She bagged the Bhopal seat by beating Digvijai Singh, the man who took pride in promoting the concept of the Hindu terror. The Sadhavi paid him in the same coins with interest. Diggy Raja, as he is known as, berate nationalist Hindus and nurtured his dream world of winning Bhopal seat by garnering Muslim votes. Sadly mistaken he was. His dream world collapsed like a house of cards unable to face the determined attack of Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, a victim of Congress regime’s high handedness that had put him in prison for nine long years that shattered her health but not her resolve to promote the Hindu Thought.
Dr K.P.Yadav is another name that comes to mind for demolishing the citadel of Guna of Jyotaradity Scindia. A scion of the ruling Maratha princely house of Gwalior, Scindia could not withstand the nationalist onslaught of the so far unknown Dr Yadav.
I shall be failing in my duty if I do not eulogize the services of Amit Shah, President of BJP and architect of the BJP massive victory of the nationalist forces. Indeed, Amit Shah ji is a great planner and a greater executor of his plans. It is the duo, Narendra Modi and Amit Shah that brought laurels of massive majority to their party , BJP. Bouquets to both of them is being presented by nationalist observers of Bharat. A shining example of team spirit it is that indeed inspired other friends and colleagues to breast the tape at the winning line.
May Ishwar bless our Prime Minister Narendra Modi and we say with pride, Modi Sarkar Bar Bar.

The Balakot strike in Pakistan by the Indian Air Force in response to the dastardly attack on the CRPF convoy in Pulwama boosted the morale of our countrymen and also the armed forces. On the other hand the then Congress governments took no action against Terror elements lest they lost the Muslim votes. The common man could foresee that the Congress party and its stalwarts votes were more important than national security and defence of the nation. The electorate punished the Congress party for this anti-national thought process and lack of resole to punish Pakistan for promoting Terror against India.
The Bhartiya Janata Party always gave top priority to National Security whereas the Congress party put it on the back burner. Rahul and band of pr0-Pakistan elements paid little attention to National Security of India and declared their intention of scrapping laws that promoted strong action against enemies of the nation. Consequently Rahul and men-women of similar thinking were punished by the nationalist lobby of Bharat. As you sow, so must you reap – so goes the age-old saying.
Men like Sam Pitroda wished away atrocities committed by the Congressmen on the Sikh citizens after assassination of India Gandhi by her Sikh security guards. “Hua toh Hua” was the casual way Sam Pitroda dismissed the serious issue of genocide committed by Congressmen. Shameful indeed.
It is because of sins of commission and omission of this nature that the perfunctory Mahagathbandhan where they shook hands but never brought their hearts and minds close to each other, were broken into smithereens at the first blow of the nationalist forces. The NYAYA slogan was just a smoke screen to cover the ANYAYA committed by the Gandhi family against the nationalist forces.
GIANT KILLERS
The BJP produced many contestants in these elections who won the proverbial title of Jack the Giant Killer. There were bloating images that needed to be punctured by real nationalist forces. The most prominent person in the list that deserves to be honoured for exposing the giant image of Rahul Gandhi and cutting him to size is none other than the Union Minister of Textiles, Smriti Irani. She punctured the bloated balloon of Amethi winner of past by defeating scion of Gandhi bastion by 54,000 plus votes. It is a creditable act of Smriti Irani and deserves to be mentioned in despatches. Smriti Ji is a person of determination who pursued her goal relentless ly until she achieved it. It may be recalled that she had lost the election to the same seat to the same opponent in 2014 but did not lose heart. She kept on nursing her constituency for five years and won the hearts and minds of the electorate.
Sadhavi Pragya Singh Thakur is another giant killer at the polls. She bagged the Bhopal seat by beating Digvijai Singh, the man who took pride in promoting the concept of the Hindu terror. The Sadhavi paid him in the same coins with interest. Diggy Raja, as he is known as, berate nationalist Hindus and nurtured his dream world of winning Bhopal seat by garnering Muslim votes. Sadly mistaken he was. His dream world collapsed like a house of cards unable to face the determined attack of Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, a victim of Congress regime’s high handedness that had put him in prison for nine long years that shattered her health but not her resolve to promote the Hindu Thought.
Dr K.P.Yadav is another name that comes to mind for demolishing the citadel of Guna of Jyotaradity Scindia. A scion of the ruling Maratha princely house of Gwalior, Scindia could not withstand the nationalist onslaught of the so far unknown Dr Yadav.
I shall be failing in my duty if I do not eulogize the services of Amit Shah, President of BJP and architect of the BJP massive victory of the nationalist forces. Indeed, Amit Shah ji is a great planner and a greater executor of his plans. It is the duo, Narendra Modi and Amit Shah that brought laurels of massive majority to their party , BJP. Bouquets to both of them is being presented by nationalist observers of Bharat. A shining example of team spirit it is that indeed inspired other friends and colleagues to breast the tape at the winning line.
May Ishwar bless our Prime Minister Narendra Modi and we say with pride, Modi Sarkar Bar Bar.

NARENDRA MODI WON LAURELS

AUM
NARENDRA MODI WON LAURELS
By Brigadier Chitranjan Sawant,VSM
Narendra Modi is the winner once again. He has won laurels. His giant size victory has crushed pygmies who were mouthing foul language against him all along. Calling an incumbent Prime Minister of India a thief just exposed the bad upbringing of the 48 year old head of a century plus old political party. The spoiled brat is called Rahul Gandhi. Let us talk about the positive points that went in favour of Narendra bhai Modi, a leader of the Bhartiya Janata Party and incumbent Prime Minister of India.
Modi’s victory in the 2019 polls have paled his own victory five years ago in 2014.The BJP plus has won 351 seats in the Lok Sabha and has left the Indian National Congress plus with a tally of just 92 seats miles behind. The so called Mahagathbandhan or the Grand Alliance of a number of insignificant political parties miles behind. No one is shedding tears for those who also ran.
MODI MODI ALL ALONG
The pass word that opened all doors is Modi Modi. The BJP sang praise of the great leader, the opposition in disarray heaped insults and false charges of criminality on the great leader. The Rahul Gandhi’s false charges in the slogan “ Chowkidar Chor Hai” boomeranged on the accuser and cohorts because Narendra Modi enjoyed an impeccable record of honesty all along. He was Chief Minister of Gujarat for 12 years and Prime Minister of India for five years before facing false charges of the corrupt brigade at the hustings in 2019. On the other hand all citizens were aware of record of dishonesty in public dealings of accuser and his immediate family for many generations. The false charges leveled against Modi by Rahul fell flat and caused no damage to the reputation of stalwarts of the Bhartiya Janata Party. This misadventure of Rahul Gandhi cost him and his party dearly and was a major factor in causing their inglorious defeat at the polls.
PAID PRESS
Articles in the Press making unfounded accusations against Narendra Modi and the Bhartiya Janata Party were seen as products of fake news or products of the paid press. The TIME magazine and New York Times of the United States of America carried articles against Modi nicknaming him as the Divider-in-Chief and spurious products of sick minds made no adverse impact on the minds of the electorate. Most of such anti-Modi press articles were written by Muslims, Christians or pseudo secular journalists on the pay roll of anti-Bharat lobby. The common man could see through sinister designs of anti-Hindu lobby funded by communists who had propped up “Tukde-Tukde Gang” dummy like Kanaihya Kumar who lost badly to Giriraj Singh from Beghu Sarai in Bihar.
The anti-Hindu press has not given prominence to the fact that many constituencies in Kerala, Assam, J&K and so on where Muslims form near 50% of the electorate have not returned BJP candidates to the LOK SABHA. Moral of the story is that under the guise of so called secularism the anti-national elements are promoting pro-Muslim agenda.

GOOD GRACIOUS GARDEN

GOOD GRACIOUS GARDEN IN NOIDA
AUM
GOOD GRACIOUS GARDEN IN NOIDA
By Brigadier Chitranjan Sawant,VSM
I love my garden. It is known as UPVAN to both friends and foes alike. My garden has helped me fall in love with Nature and recite the Ved mantra known as the Shanti Path. I chant it every now and then while sowing seeds or harvesting what I had sown many months ago. The very look of my garden motivates me to chant the mantra and the mantra brings me close to the Nature. The net result is – happiness. It is happiness that many men and women miss in their daily life doing chores. Gardening, as a hobby, takes me and my family away from our mundane activities to something that is so dear to our hearts.
NOIDA BECKONED
I retired from active Army service more than a quarter of a century ago. It was the year of our Lord 1990. I continued to stay in a spacious house on the Shanti Path, New Delhi courtesy our friends in the Raksha Mantralaya for one calendar year and then moved into the present single unit house in Noida. I must pay compliments to the Army Welfare Housing Scheme for building well located spacious houses with a little piece of land left to plant a handkerchief lawn. Indeed our ingenuity helped us to extend the area under green cover by clearing rubbish from waste land and converting it into a real Upvan or garden. The support of my wife, children and neighbours with a green finger were some of the plus points not figured in advance.
Love grows in a garden. So does envy. When the area was just a wasteland where casual visitors and sundry labourers eased themselves, foul smell emanated with a passing whiff of air, snakes and other reptiles slithered to and fro at will, not many men and women living around the waste land bothered to better the environment. When the waste land was changed into an attractive garden by hard work of a few residents who loosened strings of their purses to buy seeds, manure and hire gardeners for hard manual work, lazy fellows and mischief mongers loomed large to block the greening process on flimsy and untenable grounds.
Discard the Evil; Imbibe the Noble – so says the Ved mantra. We did just that. Help came from the well intentioned officers of the Noida administration and it gave a boost to our greening projects. Luckily the Garden Brigade of ours had asked for no financial support from the Authority and, therefore, the wily opponents dared not raise an accusing finger at us for financial mismanagement. In a nutshell the green Garden Brigade marched on triumphantly ignoring the evil forces around. Ishwar is Omniscient said we at the end of the day.
SELF HELP
God helps those who help themselves. True indeed! We planned ourselves and executed the plan too. Neighbourly cooperation has indeed been a great asset. Since there was no pooling of money, there was never ever a charge of embezzlement leveled against anyone. GOOGLE GURU was indeed always available to guide us whenever guidance was needed. While reading experiences of other enthusiasts placed in similar circumstances, care was taken to avoid anecdotes of Europe, North America and other countries located in cold climate zones. Of course, we needed to follow into footsteps of gardening stalwarts of tropical countries. Of course, predecessors of our own Bharat were the best people to fall back upon. Cow dung sun dried and compost manures were best suited to our needs and these were easily available without much hassle. Prices differed from area to area and we avoided entering into transactions with hi-fi shops that believed in much ado about nothing. Good quality seeds at moderate prices were always available at the Krishi Bhawan outlet. If one did not mind the distance involved from Noida, the Agricultural Institute, Pusa, New Delhi was the best bet.
Flowers bloomed in season and gave us Joy unadulterated. Roses walked away with the cake. The Udyan Vibhag of the Authority was more than helpful in planting quality roses and also advising on other winter flowers like Paperflower, Nasturtium, Lily, Aster and what have you. Bougainvillea is planted by one and all. It is easy to grow and its multi-coloured flowers attract attention. Basil has always been popular with people looking for medicinal herbs and leaves to boil and drink as a substitute for roasted brown tea. The Chinese example of drinking green tea was emulated by figure conscious boys, girls, men and women.
Vegetables found favour with vegetarians. Even meat eaters love to have a green vegetable on the platter to eat a balanced diet. Organic vegetables and fruits are the rage of the age. We are indeed proud to say with a sense of honesty that our products are indeed Organic. Since no item is for sale and all items are for home consumption, great care is taken to ensure that chemicals are not used by our paid Malis to add chemical manure in the sun dried cow dung to enhance the produce. Urea is a taboo for the edibles. We do not mind using it to make the lawn look lush green.
Fruits are available in summer season. We grow only mangoes, jamun, kachnar for flower-vegetable, guavas, aanwala, and that is it. This year, 2016, our Upvan has ben bereft of mangoes. The trees did not flower at all; the question of fruiting did not arise at all. Never mind, it flowers and fruits alternate years, so opined an old hand from a neighbouring village. Thus gardening teaches us not to fume and fret for what is not seen on the tree branches. Nature takes its own course and a real gardener has to be patient with the Nature. I may recall that last year it was a good harvest of mangoes. We hope to reap a bumper harvest of mangoes next year. Man lives on hope.
Our garden produce is health promoting. Seasonal vegetables are health promoting. One may pickle cucumber and eat it much after the season is over. Moreover pickled cucumber improves the gut health too. Kakari comes out of the vegetable bed in plenty. It is enough for a small family for the day. Moreover, neighbours keep on exchanging their garden produce and promote comradeship. Never mind the small quantity or number; it is the spirit behind the gesture that matters. It is fraternizing that matters most.
MINI GARDEN
Going by the aforesaid description of plants, flowers, trees, one may surmise that ours is a good orchard bearing native fruits, vegetables and flowers. Well, it is a good orchard but not a big one. It is a mini garden grown on waste land and the area presents a good and clean look. Obnoxious smell has been eliminated and those who come by for a morning stroll or a leisurely walk in both summer and winter are not disappointed. Of course, dogs are not allowed for obvious reasons inside the Upvan. There is a dog’s corner provided but the stray dogs prefer to use Upvan and cause quite a headache. Life goes on like that.
Good gracious garden has indeed many lessons for us. When a crop fails, our money and labour go waste. We are not saddened. We remember Maharana Pratap who lost the biggest battle, Haldighati but did not lose heart. Eventually he won back most of his forts but Chittorgarh. In gardening one may be down but one is never out. Gardening attracts and motivates us to be at it, never say die.
I am overjoyed when I sit under a mango tree in my garden. I am elated when I see Roses of different colours – white, yellow, pink and red. Mango fruits are not there this year but the Nightingale has put in an appearance with its extended family. Its family chat may not be intelligible but the sound certainly gives us joy unbound.
We miss some, we gain some. As said earlier, never lose Hope. If winter comes, can spring be far behind?
