The state government will start door-to-door transportation facilities to ferry children from the next academic year. As part of the initiative, 68 government primary schools of five districts have been identified to start the pick-and-drop service.

The pilot project is being launched in Fatehgarh Sahib, Sangrur, Fazilka, Mansa and Jalandhar districts. The department has also floated tenders to hire the bus service operator. An education department official said, "We have identified 24 government primary schools of Sangrur district, one from Fazilka, five from Mansa, 18 from Jalandhar and 30 schools from Fatehgarh Sahib district."

Teachers' Unions, however, have criticised the move, claiming that it was part of the government's agenda to merge (amalgamation of) primary schools.

Davinder Singh Poonia, state president, Democratic Teachers Front (DTF), said, "The education department is moving towards the amalgamation of primary schools by offering the transportation service. The main motive of the government is to attract students from far-off places from their nearby schools to specific schools. By this method, the department wants to decrease the enrolment of some of its primary schools and then close these."

Manoj Kumar, deputy state project director has confirmed the development. "We have floated tenders to hire the bus service to ferry children. The tenders will be opened next week. There are schools in the state, where children face transportation troubles. This forces their parents to drop them to school." He added teachers' fears were unfounded. "Our only aim in providing the facility is to make sure there is no transportation problem for students. It is the students' wish on which school he/she wants to join."

550th Parkash Purb: Rlys to put up details chart of 14 trains at major stations

Apart from highlighting details of special trains, the chart also gives info of 16 other passenger, mail and express trains
 As part of preparations for the 550th birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev at Sultanpur Lodhi, divisional railway authorities have prepared a chart displaying a list of 14 special trains and route maps. These charts will be put on display for passengers at all major railway stations of the division.

The design of the chart was approved by divisional railway manager (DRM) Rajesh Aggarwal on Monday evening during a meeting with other officials concerned.

Apart from highlighting the details of the 14 special trains, which have been announced by the railway ministry for the occasion, the chart also gives details on 16 other passenger, mail and express trains, which are running towards Sultanpur Lodhi.

A railway officer said that the chart was prepared to generate awareness among the passengers, who will be coming to Sultanpur Lodhi from across the country. "The design for the chart has been forwarded to the northern railway board," he added.

The chart also contains instructions on the ban on single-use plastic material at railway stations.

"We want passengers to maintain cleanliness at the station. Messages on the chart include 'single-use plastic banned in Indian Railways from October 2, 2019', 'say no to plastic' and 'motto of Indian Railways is 'reduce, reuse and recycle plastic'," said an officer from the Ferozepur division, pleading anonymity.

5% discount on booking ticket from UTS App

Railway officials said that passengers booking unreserved tickets can do so through the UTS mobile application of the Railways and avail 5% discount.

"Tickets from the UTS application can be booked only before entering the station premises. After downloading the application free of cost from the Play Store, there is a one-time registration. After logging in, one has to click on the 'book ticket' option and choose 'normal booking'. After filling in details, including origin station, destination, number of passengers, route and train type, passengers can obtain the ticket by paying online or through railway wallet," the instructions on the chart read.

“Welcome to the 20s”- Yuvraj Singh has a special wish for Shubman Gill on his birthday

Gill has grown leaps and bounds in his short career and is now set to lead the India 'A' in the unofficial Test series versus South Africa.

Indian cricket has quite a few talented cricketers in their ranks for the future, one of them is the very talented Shubman Gill. The right-handed batsman has been an absolute revelation over the last couple of years and his performances haven't gone unnoticed by any means. The youngster is well and truly in the scheme of things as far as selection in the national team is concerned.

Back in 2018, he became the Player of the Tournament in the U19 World Cup in New Zealand. The Young Turk was the second highest run-scorer of the series with a century versus Pakistan U19. Thereafter, he broke into the India A team along with Prithvi Shaw, his skipper in the U19 side. Then, the Fazilka-born weaved his magic in the previous edition of the Ranji Trophy.

During the tournament, he smacked his maiden double-century for Punjab against Tamil Nadu. January 2019 turned out to be a massive month in his career as he was called up for the tour of New Zealand. Shubman had to warm the benches for the first three matches and got his first chance when Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, rested himself from the last two One Dayers.

Shubman Gill going from strength to strength

Albeit he could only manage 16 runs in the two games, he was seen as one for the future. Back in 2018, he also got a deal for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). There, he shone for the team, batting higher up the order. Lately, he got a double ton in a four-day contest versus the West Indies, though he had a bit of struggle in the series versus South Africa A.

He is now set to lead the India 'A' team in the first match of the two-match unofficial Test series versus South Africa 'A' itself. Amidst his journey in cricket, Gill has turned 20 and on his birthday, wishes have poured in for the batter. Yuvraj Singh, who also played for Punjab in India's domestic circuit, wished him for the future and also welcomed him into the 20s.

Yuvraj, also a former Indian cricketer, took to Twitter and wrote, "Welcome to the 20s Mr. Gill long way to go. Wishing the future of Indian cricket a very happy bday @RealShubmanGill,"

Here is Yuvraj's tweet for Shubman

Welcome to the 20s Mr. Gill long way to go. Wishing the future of Indian cricket a very happy bday @RealShubmanGill

अलविदा खय्याम साहिब

अलविदा खय्याम साहिब
आज हिंदी सिनेमा और संगीत ने अपना एक और बेशकीमती हीरा खो दिया 
पर्बतो के पेड़ों पर शाम का बसेरा है, यह क्या जगह है दोस्तों,  बहारों मेरा जीवन भी सांवरो , जाने क्या ढूंढ़ती रहती है यह आँखें मुझमे, कहीं एक मासूम नाजुक सी लड़की , कभी कभी मेरे दिल में ख्याल आता है, दिखाई दिए यूं , "कभी किसी को मुक़म्मल जहाँ नहीं मिलता" और न जाने कितने हे बेमिसाल गीत अपने दिए | राहों (नवांशहर) के ख़य्याम और लुधियाना के साहिर साहिर की जोड़ी ने बेमिसाल गीत हिंदी फिल्म सिनेमा को दिए | पिछली तीन पीढ़ियों ने आपके संगीत को को सुना सराहा और प्यार किया | थोड़े दिन पहले ही में श्रीनगर के ग्रैंड होटल के उस हाल में खड़ा था जहाँ आपका "कभी-कभी" फिल्म का मशहूर गीत " में पल दो पल का शायर हूँ " फिल्माया गया था तब यह शायद अंदाज़ा ही न था की आप हमसे इतने दूर चले जायेंगे 
फुटपाथ, फिर सुबह होगी, शंकर हुसैन, कभी कभी,‌ उमराव जान, थोड़ी सी बेवफाई, बाजार, नूरी, दर्द, रजिया सुल्तान, पर्वत के उस पार, त्रिशूल और न नाज़े कितनी फिल्मे जो कभी उतनी हिट न हो पाती अगर उनमे आपका संगीत न होगा आपका संगीत मौसिक़ी को प्यार करने वाले के दिल में हमेशा बस्ता रहेगा मेरी प्लेलिस्ट और हिंदी सिनेमा के म्यूजिक को प्यार करने वाले हर उस व्यक्ति की प्लेलिस्ट आपके संगीत के बिना अधूरी है |

Pillar of 118-yr-old protected monument collapses

Praful Chander Nagpal
Fazilka, July 2
A pillar and a portion of the roof of the main gate of 118-year-old protected monument Raghuvar Bhawan have collapsed.

One of the three main pillars and roof of the unattended building, which had acquired heritage status, collapsed all of a sudden last night. It was noticed by historian Lachhman Dost this morning. Dost spearheaded an agitation to get the monument a heritage status three years ago.
He said three rooms, a portion of the roof and stairs had already collapsed following "callous attitude" of the successive governments. "The remaining building is also in shambles and can collapse any moment," Dost added.
After prolonged agitation, the state government gave Raghuvar Bhawan a heritage status in 2016, but not even a single penny has been spent on the building located on the Freedom Fighter road. "The building requires immediate attention to save it from total ruin," said Dost.
Local philanthropist Seth Sunder Mal Bansal had got the building constructed in 1901 after the name of his only son Raghuvar, who died young. Sunder Mal and his family members died in 1940s and none came forward to take care of the building.

Sorry state of affairs

Fazilka’s AC smart govt school is children’s delight

ALL THE CLASSROOMS ALSO EQUIPPED WITH SMART LEDS PANELS, BESIDES A LANGUAGE LAB IN EACH OF THEM; SCHOOL ALSO BOASTS OF E-LIBRARY  

FAZILKA: Residents of Chanan Wala, a remote border village of this district, were on cloud nine on Saturday as the once filthy government primary school there was inaugurated as the state's maiden air-conditioned smart school.

Headmaster Lovejeet Singh Grewal made extraordinary efforts to arrange ultra-modern facilities to this hitherto neglected school, with contributions by philanthropists of the region and government authorities.

All the classrooms in the school were not only made airconditioned but were also equipped with smart LEDs panels, besides a language lab in each of them.

The school now boasts of an e-library. It also has impressive greenery and hygienic toilets.

Also, the school has now introduced yoga and gatka classes, hobby classes with soft skill training.

Notably, the school was rated at the 69 rank among the 77 primary schools in the block.

The drastic improvement in the amenities has led to the doubling of the strength in the school in the new academic session.

Shabby infrastructure, broken toilets and low student strength was what Lovejeet Grewal inherited when he joined this school in the June last year.

He says, "I was inspired by Mr Krishan Kumar, secretary, education department, who had asked primary teachers of the state to take the challenge of transforming their schools."

Navdeep Asija, secretary of Graduate Welfare Association, Fazilka, said, "Lovejeet roped in our NGO. We arranged for ACs and LEDs through crowd funding."

The total cost of the renovation was around Rs 18 lakh, out of which 72% work was accomplished through MNREGA.

In an off-beat inaugural ceremony, Fazilka deputy commissioner (DC) Manpreet Singh honoured the mason, plumber and the electrician, who did voluntary service for the school. This was followed by a cultural programme and a dinner with parents of the students.

Punjab border dists on high alert, no evacuation

Chandigarh, February 26

Punjab's border districts are on high alert in the wake of the Air Force strikes in Pakistan. No evacuation orders have been given yet, but residents have been asked to remain vigilant.

Police commandos have been stationed outside vital installations. Security in the vicinity of the Halwara Air Force station has been strengthened. Sukhdev Singh of Halwara village said they were woken up by the deafening sound of fighter planes at 2.45 am. Commandos have also been deployed near the Bhisiana air base in Bathinda, Guru Gobind Singh refinery, the NFL and oil depots.

An uneasy calm prevails at the Pathankot Air Force station, located 40 km from the International Border. The base acts as the first line of defense. In the 1971 war, its runway was badly damaged. The 1999 Kargil war was virtually commandeered from here.

The Mamun ammunition dump, considered the biggest in Asia, is being closely guarded too. Security has also been tightened in Bamial village, a stone's throw away from the border. Militants, who attacked the Dinanagar police station in  2015 and the Pathankot air base in 2016, are believed to have entered from Bamial.

The Army has begun movement in Dera Baba Nanak. Reports say the government schools at Haruwal and Shahpur Goraya villages have been converted into base camps. A godown on the outskirts has also been taken over. Leave applications of all government officials in the border belt have been put on hold.  

Several check-posts have been set up on the Gurdaspur-Pathankot stretch of the highway. Residents of border villages in Fazilka have started shifting to safer places. Security personnel have begun holding meetings with locals, asking them to keep an eye on anti-social elements and strangers. Sirsa in Haryana too is on high alert. — TNS
