Miryala Satvik

Saturday, October 2, 2010



Miryala Satvik (17 years), is studying intermediate final year in Narayana Junior College, Vanasthalipuram, Hyderabad. Unfortunately he was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome (Chronic Kidney Disease), and has been suffering from three and half years severely.

Recently his condition became very serious that his both kidneys were collapsed. Hence thedoctors in Apollo Hospitals, Hyderabad have advised them to go for kidney transplantation immediately. Now he is undergoing haemodialysis on regular basis.


His mother came forward to donate her kidney. But the transplantation and procedure charges and medication charges are around Rs 8 Lakhs (eight lakhs). In fact, Uncle M. Damodar, his father  spent Rs 8 Lakhs for the treatment, which landed him in neck deep debts. So his father cannot afford further Rs 8 Lakhs for the transplantation procedure.

The doctors have fixed 8th October 2010 for the surgery.

So, kindly request you all for financial help
.


His father is a govt employee so there is no chance of Arogyasri.

HOPE - for needy has visited boy's house and donated Rs8000/- today. 

We request every one to look into this matter and please help them as they are in real need.


 


***** Satvik's Kidney Transplantation was done successfully on 21st Oct, 2010. Thank you every one for supporting a noble cause. *****

Eco - Friendly Ganesh Festival

Monday, September 6, 2010

Devotion is not in the material or size of the God, but it is in the heart of the devotee !
If you have true devotion, you can find the glorious image of the Lord in every thing and every being. So, please do not cause loss to creation of God on the name of Devotion !

The materials used to make most of the Ganesh idols are toxic!

Plaster of paris, which is used to make majority of the idols contains gypsum, sulphur, phosphorus and magnesium.
Chemical paints, which are used to colour the idols contain mercury, cadmium, lead and carbon.

Immersion of these idols can poison the waters of tanks, lakes and rivers by :    
increasing acidity
increasing solid matter
increasing organic matter
increasing content of heavy metals

This pollution created by immersion damages the ecosystem by :
Killing the fishes
Damaging the plants
Blocking the natural flow of the water and causing stagnation

And damages health by polluting drinking water sources causing
Breathing problems
Blood diseases
Skin diseases

The Alternatives :
 

Use a small unpainted idol made of unbaked clay instead of Plaster of paris.
Immerse the idol in a tub or a water tank.
Collect the flowers and leaves and compost them.
Or use permanent idols made of brass or stone and do a symbolic immersion in a bucket of water or in a tank. 
Re-use the same idol again the next year.
Avoid the use of thermocole and plastic in decorations.

Help reduce Water Pollution by celebrating
Eco friendly Ganesh Chaturdhi !

On Behalf of HOPE - for needy awareness campaign, we are installing a clay idol by using completely Eco - Frinedly items. We are also distributing 100 to 200 small clay idols with an awareness message.
Please do visit it from 11th to 15th in Ramanthapur, near TV studio.

THANK YOU

Jai Ganesh Maharaj

Relish - 55 Fiction

Thursday, March 18, 2010

Note:- 55 Fiction infers to fictional writings bounded to a maximum of fifty-five words.


 Relish

They would have rice only once a month.....

I was there with them on one such occasion.....

They served rice on sal leaves with salt and chilli powder.....

I was anxious enough to ask what I should have the rice with.....

One of them told me humbly, " Mix it with the hunger in your stomach".
 
PS : 
1. The dark side of India's economic growth has been that the excluded social groups have been further marginalised, compounding their hunger, malnutrition and even leading to starvation deaths
2.  India is failing its rural poor with 230 million people being undernourished — the highest for any country in the world. Malnutrition accounts for nearly 50% of child deaths in India.

Save The Tiger

Thursday, February 4, 2010



At the turn of the 20th century, according to sources, India had an estimated 40,000 tigers in the wild. In 2002, based on pug mark census, this number was 3,642. As per the monitoring exercise by Wildlife Institute of India in association with National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), Government of India using camera traps, in 2008 we were left with only 1,411 tigers. This number is so small that they will be gone soon if we don’t wake up to the crisis.

The tiger is not just a charismatic species. It’s not just a wild animal living in some forest either. The tiger is a unique animal which plays a pivotal role in the health and diversity of an ecosystem. It is a top predator and is at the apex of the food chain and keeps the population of wild ungulates in check, thereby maintaining the balance between prey herbivores and the vegetation upon which they feed. Therefore the presence of tigers in the forest is an indicator of the well being of the ecosystem. The extinction of this top predator is an indication that its ecosystem is not sufficiently protected, and neither wouldit exist for long thereafter.

If the tigers go extinct, the entire system would collapse. For e.g. when the Dodos went extinct in Mauritius, one species of Acacia tree stopped regenerating completely. So when a species goes extinct, it leaves behind a scar, which affects the entire ecosystem. Another reason why we need to save the tiger is that our forests are water catchment areas.

When we protect one tiger, we protect about a 100 sq. km of area and thus save other species living in its habitat. Therefore, it’s not just about saving a beautiful animal. It is about making sure that we live a little longer as the forests are known to provide ecological services like clean air, water, pollination, temperature regulation etc. This way, our planet can still be home to our children.

Spread the word: Go out loud and tell others that tigers are dying and that they need our help. You can form forums (or join existing ones) on the web for discussions and exchange views on tiger conservation. Reach school going children. WWF can help you in this regard.


Be a responsible tourist: The wilderness is to be experienced and not to be disturbed and polluted. Follow the forest department guidelines when visiting any wilderness area, tiger reserve in particular. As the saying goes ‘Don’t leave thing anything behind except foot steps, and don’t take anything except memories.’

Write to the policy makers: If you are really concerned and feel that more needs to be done for tiger conservation, then write polite letters to the decision makers - the Prime Minister, the Minister for Environment and Forests or even your local MP.

Informing the nearest police station: If you know of any information on poaching or trade of illegal wildlife. You can also contact TRAFFIC- an organisation fighting the powerful poachers and pass on the information to them.

Reducing pressure on natural resources: By reducing the use of products derived from forests, such as timber and paper.

Republic day - Facts and Opinion

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

1. When...?
  • The Republic Day marks the day when the Constitution of India came into force. But it was adopted by the Constituent Assembly on November 26, 1949.

2.
Then, why Jan 26...?
  • January 26 was being chosen as the Republic Day to commemorate the Purna Swaraj' (complete Independence) declaration taken on that date by the Indian National Congress at Lahore in 1930.
3. Parade Route ...
  • One of the highlights of the Republic Day is the grand parade in New Delhi. The traditional parade route is from Raisina Hill to the Red Fort along the Rajpath and past India Gate.


4. Memorial...
  • Prior to the parade, the Prime Minister lays a wreath at the memorial , Amar Jawan Jyoti' below the India Gate, in sombre remembrance for all those soldiers who were martyred.
5. Guns...
  • When the President unfurls the National Flag, 21 guns boom out in salute.

6.
Salute...
  • The gallantry award winners Victoria Cross, Param Vir Chakra and Ashok Chakra lead the parade with the Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Armed Forces taking salute.

7.
Children...
  • One of the most cheered sections of the parade is when some chosen children astride elephants pass the dais. These children are National Bravery Award winners.

8. Conclusion...
  • An impressive fly-past by IAF aircraft concludes the parade in New Delhi on January 26.

9.
3 Days Festival...
  • The Republic Day celebration is a three day extravaganza


10. PM Rally...
  • On January 27, selected NCC cadets who display various breath-taking performances and drill hold the Prime Minister's rally

11.
Last Day...
  • 'Beating the Retreat' ceremony at Vijay Chowk on January 29 that officially denotes the end of Republic Day festivities.

12.
Hymn...
  • Abide With Me', the hymn, written by Henry Francis Lyte and said to be Mahatma Gandhi's favourite, played at the above ceremony.
13. The End
  • The Republic Day celebration come to a formal end on January 29 at 6 p.m., buglers sound the retreat, the National Flag is lowered and the National Anthem is sung.
-----------------------------------------

Anyway, I opine that....


The 60th anniversary of India becoming a republic has come and gone. Fireworks, salutes to the tiranga, distribution of awards, parades, display of our military might and what not. But the real issue amid the festivities seems to have been lost somewhere. We boast that we have been a democracy for six decades and point out that the same is not true of our neighbours but are we truly democratic? Have we lived up to the ideals cherished in the Constitution?
Our foreign policy changes according to the dictates of Washington; education has been commercialised; there is too much privatisation; there has been a decline in vital subsidies; we have blatantly failed to instil confidence among the minorities and are yet to fulfil the people s regional aspirations. We can, at best, celebrate Republic Day as yet another festival.

* * *
Democracy has helped only our politicians. Many of them got an opportunity to become billionaires after a decade or so in politics. Our criminal justice system is all but ineffective in curbing corruption, which starts with the ballot box and ends in Swiss banks. Politicians have mastered the technique of purchasing the illiterate masses on the eve of elections and use state funds to market their party to the same masses by offering freebies. Those who can change the system refrain from voting due to frustration and, in some cases, fear. Our democracy is the best bet for Swiss banks.

* * *
The annual Republic Day parade is an occasion to showcase the country s achievements in the military, cultural and economic fields. But it is also true that enormous resources in terms of money and manpower are spent in organising the occasion. This is particularly true in the current security scenario when such functions have to be organised under the shadow of possible terrorist attacks. In view of this, we should seriously consider having such huge celebrations at intervals of three-four years.

Green Deeds

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Happy New Year, 2010. 


Hope, you had all the new year's flavours, aromas, wishes, entertainment, cultural activities, refreshment, fun and frolic etc. New Calendars? BTW, How did the parties and celebrations went off? Colourful/Exciting/Blast/Rockin? Were they Green too? 

Yeah, we mean it. How much we have been contributing to the ever incrementing global warming by these celebrations on various occasions, year long? We all of us know very well that, not only celebrations, every human deed results in the gradual extinction of many species, daily. Wait, we are not asking every one to become a saint and stop partying/celebrating. If we all are responsible to the mounting Global Warming phenomenon, knowingly or unknowingly, by the usage of non-biodegradable things and burning fossil fuels through our daily activities , then isn't it our responsibility to compensate for the inevitable damage we are causing to the Environment in which WE live.



Any new resolutions in New Year?
How about having one more?
Shall we try "Green Deeds" ?


Yes. Green Deeds. You might have got the gist of this topic by now.
We strongly feel and opine that the obvious failure of Copenhagen summit(Climate Change) necessitates to retrospect our role and responsibilities before passing the buck to other entities. We would like to propose an idea to deal with the number of carbon foot prints we are leaving behind whenever we succumb ourselves to consumerism .

As every  activity, from working to partying, results in a certain amount of  plastic waste or consuming any fuel/energy/power that causes global warming, we can make the activity as GREEN by planting a sapling to minimise the damage/impact, if not finding a solution. It is quite simple. You can choose, like, for how many activities/deeds you will plant a sapling. It can be one sapling per one activity or one sapling per 4 activities, depending on one's convenience. The choice is yours.  It is highly flexible .  We have to start somewhere, right?
Think once....
 
1. How about adding a plant along with the gift on any/every occasion?

2. How about planting a sapling/saplings as a memory to our recent trip?
3. How about having at least one Green weekend per month?
4. How about having 11 plantations whenever India wins a series or your favourite player performs?
5. How about saying a Green Sorry?
6. How about having a plant on every success in our life?
7. How about Green Festivals/Green Cinemas/Green Works/Green Jobs?
8. How about converting all get-togethers/Meetings/Parties/Trips/Journeys/Weekends/Holidays etc into "Green Visits"?
9. How about "Green Shopping" (one plant per 1000/10000  etc )? What say?
10. We may have Green Friends/Relationships too....

11.Finally, how about Green Blogs/posts. One plant per one post/5 posts/one Blogaton etc??


Similarly,
Green Studies...... 1 plant per one semester/academic year
Green Careers.....1 plant per appointment/bonus/onsite/promotion etc

Green Bike.....1 plant per 100/500/1000 km etc
Green Aims...... 1 plant for one Aim/Goal/Dream
Green Waste...... 1 plant per 1month/100 days/1 year etc
Green Books...... 1 plant per 1 book/10 books

Green LOVE....... You know it.
Green Homes.......Is your balcony empty? 
Green Gadgets.....1 plant per PC/Laptop/mobile, per year
Green Music.......1 plant per 100/200 albums etc




We hope the questions, like, Is your Job Green? Is your life Greener? Is this Green Party? Do you have Green Memories? Is your PC green Is your blog Green/Are you a Green Blogger?  ....etc will become part of our lives soon.

So Friends, what do you say? Will you join us and spread this flavour of "Greenism" ?
We are leaving few ideas for you. We would like to have suggestions from you, which we will add in this post, eventually, to make it more comprehensive and pragmatic.



 Any Green Thoughts ?

Lets, WE, together make this new year a......

Happy GREEN New Year :) 





PS: This post is a Green Post :) :) :)
