मन बैरागी, तन अनुरागी, क़दम-क़दम दुश्वारी है - निदा फ़ाज़ली

मन बैरागी, तन अनुरागी, क़दम-क़दम दुश्वारी है
जीवन जीना सहल न जानो, बहुत बड़ी फ़नकारी है

औरों जैसे होकर भी हम बाइज़्ज़त हैं बस्ती में
कुछ लोगों का सीधापन है, कुछ अपनी अय्यारी है

जब-जब मौसम झूमा हमने कपड़े फाड़े, शोर किया
हर मौसम शाइस्ता रहना कोरी दुनियादारी है

ऐब नहीं है उसमें कोई, लाल-परी ना फूल-गली
ये मत पूछो वो अच्छा है या अच्छी नादारी है - निदा फ़ाज़ली

Rains in Urban Punjab : The Boon becomes Bane?

As per the affidavit filed by the Director, Urban Local Bodies Punjab, out of 10 corporation cities of Punjab, 4 of them like Hoshiarpur, Patiala, Pathankot, and Phagwara have no provision for the roadside stormwater drains. In Smart cities like Ludhiana, Amritsar, and Jalandhar only 10-11% of the areas have provision for the stormwater drains. Only S.A.S. Nagar Mohali has stormwater drainage system but not being maintained. In the rest of the cities, where the stormwater drain is available, we Municipalities have connected it with sewerage system. We are otherwise lucky that we are getting adequate rains, but the way it is being managed; these 60 rainy days are a nightmare for the traffic as well for the life of road pavements. Ludhiana alone spends about 60-70 crore annually to repair roads after rains. In the last 10 year, no money has been spent in these cities to provide adequate stormwater drainage facilities, whereas the large sum of money was being spent to repair the same roads every year after rains. The scenario is the same in all cities of Punjab. Department of Local Government, Punjab manage 163 cities and towns and they don't have single drainage engineer with them. Inadequate road drainage arrangements put enormous pressure on Traffic Police to manage traffic during rains. Now, if we talk about the 145 towns in Punjab, 124 have water supply system based upon tube wells.
Now, if we look at the calculations for 10 corporation cities of Punjab, about 62 lakh people live in these 10 cities. Geographical area and annual rainfall history wise, these cities received 48,91,296 lakh litre of rainwater annually. As per the Bureau of Indian Standards, IS:1172-1993, a minimum water supply of 200 litres per capita per day (lpcd) should be provided for domestic consumption this means, our 10 corporation cities require approx. 45,000,00 lakh litre of water annually. If we manage this free rainwater through a network of the drains and treat it not only drinking water need but we can use the same for non-drinking purposes like construction-related activity, water requirement to manage green belt of the city. Mother Nature has perfect and smart calculations for the water requirement and supply arrangements for our cities. Just because of the poor management of rainwater by mighty municipal corporation officers and engineers, each rain ends up putting financial burden as well inconvenience. Honorable Punjab and Haryana High Court also issued serious directions in this regards (Interim Order under CWP 17530 of 2010 dated 3 November 2017), but no action. Average 60 days of rains are giving us sufficient water for the whole year, but we are wasting it. We are draining out groundwater for our daily needs and not recharging it back. Rainwater can be used to recharge groundwater through artificial recharge techniques. Overall with this kind of institutional will and kind of people managing our cities, Future is certainly dark. God Bless Us.

Nari choupals in border district of Fazilka to involve women in implementing govt schemes

BATHINDA: Aiming to make women open up to share their problems and thoughts for the betterment of society, the Fazilka district administration on Thursday started the concept of 'nari choupals' in the villages bordering Pakistan. Parts of Fazilka district are situated near the international border. The concept of choupals was started from village Puran Patti. It is also intended to involve women in government schemes and programmes especially Tandrust Punjab and drug abuse prevention officer(DAPO).

Fazilka Deputy Commissioner Isha Kalia said that "the choupals or camps shall include interaction with women about their problems and health check ups as women from border villages do not come to district or sub divisional officers mainly DC or SDM and largely only their male members visit offices. Organising choupals is an effort to reach out to them and also to find out about people who are genuinely under distress in villages".

Such camps will be organised any day in a week to understand problems of women and give them an opportunity to open up and share their thoughts, said the Deputy Commissioner.

Manipur: Two Jawans Including a Civilian, Killed in a Week

Since last one week, Manipur has been into the clutch of violence which has resulted in the death of at least four people, including a civilian, a militant and two Army personnel. As per the reports presented by the Imphal Free Press on Friday, the army jawans have attained the martyrdom in separate incidents and the militant and the civilian were killed in separate incidents.

A suspected militant was shot dead by the 38 Assam Rifles about 6 km from Kangpokpi town at 10 pm on March 2. The militant has been identified as 22-year-old Rexcy Lhouvum who had been an active cadre of the Thadou People's Liberation Army. Some unidentified gunmen shot dead a 23-year-old  youth named Thokchom Jagat near his house in Imphal city, just a few hours after the militant was killed. As reported by The Sangai Express, the youth was returning home after attending Thabal Chongba dance performance

 
In another incident on March 5, A soldier of the 13 Sikh Light infantry succumbed to his injuries at the Leimakhong military hospital in Imphal West. The soldier was injured in a gunfight with suspected National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak Muivah) in Tamenglong district. As reported by the Imphal Free Press, the incident took place when two teams of the infantry division had been patrolling in Nungadang and Molphei villages soon after they had got the reports of clashes between the NSCN-IM and the Zeliangrong United Front. The gunfight lead to bullet injury on the chest of Amarsheer Singh of Fazilka, Punjab, which later proved to be fatal for the martyred soldier.

On the other hand, The Sangai Express reported that The NSCN (IM) (which is also in talks with the Central government to find a resolution to the Naga political question) denied its connection with the encounter on Friday. The report called the Army's accusations 'highly immature' and 'questionable' as the Centre is trying hard to find the solution for the Naga dispute, with the help of the Nagas.

Though the violence against the security forces has not been revoked in the state and is continued while the patrolling team of 28 Rajput rifles in Chandel district along the Indo-Myanmar border, was in the ambush operation on March 6. The incident resulted in the casualty of one soldier and three others were injured after the militants from the United National Liberation Front detonated three improvised explosive devices.

ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup hero Shubman Gill ‘new Yuvraj Singh’ of Punjab cricket

HT, 31st January 2018
With an aggregate of 341 runs in the ongoing ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup, Shubman Gill from the town of Fazilka in Punjab's Ferozepur district has been the center of attention, even more than the skipper Prithvi Shaw, and has drawn comparisons with Yuvraj Singh.

A heady mixture of silken grace and dollops of brute power has always defined Punjab school of batsmanship and the latest to have emerged from that stable is 18-year-old Shubman Gill.

With an aggregate of 341 runs in the ongoing U-19 World Cup, the teenager from non descript town of Fazilka in Punjab's Ferozepur district has been the centre of attention, even more than the highly-rated skipper Prithvi Shaw.

Strapping with sinewy wrists, Shubman's exciting strokeplay has earned him eyeballs and no wonder he went to Kolkata Knight Riders for a bid of Rs 1.8 crore at the IPL auction.


Nathan Lyon to captain Australia's PM XI in Twenty20 against England
Pointless comparing Hardik Pandya with Kapil Dev: Mohammed Azharuddin

It was around 10 days ago when India were playing their second group league game of the World Cup against Zimbabwe at Mount Maunganui, Shubman pulled rival pacer N Nungu for a six over deep mid-wicket.

It was a short-arm jab but more interestingly there was an eerie similarity with a stroke that Virat Kohli had hit during his innings of 150 against England in an ODI in Pune, last January.

In fact, the BCCI's official website compared both the strokes and it spoke about the skill and swagger which have been the hallmark of all great players hailing from North India.

During the days of Mohinder Amarnath and Navjot Sidhu -- Punjab batting was more about grit and power but Yuvraj Singh married both. And now it seems that Shubman is ready to carry that legacy forward.

And none other than his senior Punjab team captain Harbhajan Singh, who feels that he has got everything to succeed at the highest level.

"Obviously, the more he plays quality bowling, he will improve. He will play in different conditions, go through phases where he would know how to score runs in difficult conditions. But make no mistake, I have seen 18-year-old Yuvraj Singh from close quarters, Shubman is as talented as Yuvraj," Harbhajan gave a fair assessment about the youngster.

"His biggest advantage is that he has strokes that all modern day players would like to have. He can hit Dilscoop (the lap shot made famous by TM Dilshan), he can hit the ramp shot (guiding over thirdman), inside out lofted shot.

"And the toughest of them all -- the pull in-front of square. Pulling through deep square leg is not difficult but you need to be tall with supple wrists to keep the ball down while pulling in-front of square. Shubman has that," says the veteran of 100 plus Test matches.

In fact, Shubman himself said that he would like to play all formats when former England opener Robert Key interviewed him.

"Adaptability is the key and I would like to play all three formats."

Coming from an affluent family with plethora of farmland, the legend has it that Shubman's father Lakhwinder Singh had constructed a turf pitch on his farmland, where little Shubman practiced during his early days.

पहुंचाने वाले फाजिल्का जिले के क्रिकेटर शुभमन गिल के मामले में भी है। पाकिस्तान पर भारत की 203 रन की धमाकेदार जीत से शुभमन के पैतृक गांव जयमलवाला में खुशी की लहर दौड़ गई है। शुभमन के दादा-दादी पूरी तरह क्रिकेट में रंग में रंगे नजर आए। टीम में बतौर वाइस कैप्टन खेल रहे शुभमन ने जहां भारत को फाइनल में पहुंचाकर अपने गृह जिले के नाम रोशन किया है। वहीं, गत दिवस आइपीएल में लगी बोली में एक करोड़ 80 लाख रुपये में शाह रुख खान की टीम कोलकाता नाइट राइडर्स में भी चुनकर दोगुनी खुशी जिला वासियों को दी है।1मोहाली में पिता ने करवाई प्रेक्टिस : फाजिल्का के होनहार खिलाड़ी शुभमन का इस मुकाम तक पहुंचने का सफर आसान नहीं रहा है। इसके पीछे जहां शुभमन की कड़ी मेहनत है वहीं उसके माता-पिता की कुर्बानी ने भी अहम रोल अदा किया है। एक समय ऐसा था जब अपना खेत खलिहान व गांव छोड़कर बेटे का क्रिकेट में भविष्य बनाने के लिए गिल दंपती मोहाली चले गए, लेकिन शुरुआती चार साल बहुत मुश्किल से बीते। मोहाली क्रिकेट एसोसिएशन का क्रिकेट मैदान जो पंजाब के क्रिकेटरों के लिए मक्का से कम नहीं है, में शुभमन को प्रेक्टिस के लिए जगह नहीं मिल पाती थी। कोई साथी नहीं था। शुभमन के पिता लख¨वदर गिल बताते हैं कि ऐसे वक्त में वह खुद बालिंग कर अपने बेटे का प्रेक्टिस करवाते थे। आज अपनी मेहनत के बूते शुभमन ने वो मुकाम हासिल कर लिया है जिस

शुभमन की ओर से बचपन में क्रिकेट खेलने के लिए खरीदे सभी बैट संभालकर रखे हैं। दादी गुरमेल कौर ने बताया कि शुभमन तीन साल का था, तभी उसे क्रिकेट की लगन लग गई थी। जैसे-जैसे बड़ा होता गया, दादी उसके द्वारा छोड़े गए बैट पर उसकी उम्र लिखकर उसे सहेजती गई। वहीं शुभमन को मिल रही कामयाबी से खुशी दादा दीदार सिंह गिल घर में ही पिच बनाकर आने-जाने वाले के साथ क्रिकेट खेलने में मशगूल हो गए हैं।1अंडर-16 में शुभमन के नाम वल्र्ड रिकार्ड : शुभमन के पिता लख¨वदर सिंह व माता किरत कौर गिल ने बताया कि उनके लिए वह क्षण काफी गौरवमयी थे, जब शुभमन अंडर-16 के मैच मोहाली टीम से खेलता था। तब उसने पीसीए के इंटर डिस्टिक्ट मैच में सबसे पहली ओपनिंग पार्टनरशिप 587 रनों वाली की थी। अंडर-16 में अमृतसर के खिलाफ खेलते हुए शुभमन ने 365 रन व रोपड़ के खिलाफ नॉटआउट रहते हुए 405 रन की पारी खेली थी, जो कि वल्र्ड रिकार्ड है। उन्हीं दो वर्षो में शुभमन को लगातार आल इंडिया बेस्ट क्रिकेटर बीसीए की ओर से चुना गया। उसके बाद उसने जोन स्तरीय मुकाबलों के चार मैच में 700 से अधिक रन बनाए। सीनियर टीम इंडिया के साथ हुए एक वनडे टूर्नामेंट के पहले मैच में शुभमन रन आउट हो गया था। वहीं दूसरे मैच में जबरदस्त वापसी करते हुए युवराज के साथ खेलते हुए सैकड़ा जमाया था। इस साल रणजी मैच में भी शुभमन शतक जमा चुके हैं। अब अंतरराष्ट्रीय क्रिकेट में
