The Blast that was not....

The Blast that was not a blast.
Today late in the evening, a loud blast like sound suddenly made people of Sirsa and surrounding panicked out of no reason. Suddenly there was a big spurt of messages on social media about the BLAST that for a couple of hours replaced the plethora of Anti and Pro Demonetization messages.
Then it was observed by many that it could be Sonic Boom of a jet flight from local Air Force station. Few journalists call up Air Force reception and were told that perhaps no flight has taken place. SP Sirsa was also unable to comment on it initially.
However the fact is that it was not a Blast but Sound of SONIC BOOM.
Here is how it happens, and why it may not be from any flight taken locally. Actually the Aircraft need not to be the one that takes flight from Sirsa Air Force Station; in fact the takeoff from Sirsa Station may not be able to attain Supersonic speed so quickly. A jet plane (that has supersonic speed ability) that is passing over, when attains supersonic level creates a Sonic Boom, it is instead of just one is rather a series of continuous Blast like BOOMS which can be heard over a very long distance. As they are in series close to each other, mostly at one place only one big boom (or two) can be perceived by ear. This is perhaps what happened last night.
Here are two very good links that explain this phenomenon in layman’s language and also another one that gives greater details. This link comes from reputed science journal : Scientific American and is  written in very simple language to explain about Sonic Boom: www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-happens-when-an-airc/ And the second link below gives more complex and detailed information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonic_boom A reasonable knowledge of Physics is required to understand second link properly.

Accept Positive Criticism - Dr TN Chugh

Accept  Positive  Criticism
Criticism is the expression of disapproval of someone or something on the basis of perceived faults, defects or mistakes. It may be an attitude having an objection, expressing dissent, stating a dislike, wanting to dissociate from something or rejecting something. The motivation and effects can be rational or irrational or arbitrary. These can be healthy or unhealthy.
Criticism can also be denoted as censure, condemnation, denunciation, disparagement, opprobrium, fault finding, captiousness, belligerence, pugnacity etc. The word ‘criticism’ has been derived from; French-critique, English-critic, Latin-criticus and Greek- kritos; which means’ judge, critic or decider’.
Types of Criticism:
The varieties of critical reviews change with persons, time, situations and thoughts. Generally, criticism is indirect form of self boasting, because when a person criticizes or traces faults in another person, it merely conveys one’s own needs to be critical. The knowledge about different types has been gained from free encyclopedia (Wikipedia). People can either apply criticism in a positive way to improve or in a negative way that can decrease our mental value to cause stress, breach of peace or hostility.
Constructive Criticism: It not only intends to point out your mistakes but also show you where and how improvements can be made. It is easier to accept, even if it still hurts to some extent, but you can use this criticism to your advantage. A man who refuses to admit his mistakes can never be successful.
Destructive Criticism: It is bad and hurtful censure which leads to anger, stress and aggression. It has negative effects on your self esteem and confidence. Criticism of both these types is challenging your ideas, character and ability. If you know a person who is critical of everything, try to take their comments seriously, as this is a part of their trait. They make damaging remarks to hurt. Criticism is indecent behavior adopted by certain professionals to blackmail the nice persons.
The Factual criticism ensures the consistency, authenticity and predictability of behavior of any kind. The objection is raised about idea, argument, action or situation. Aesthetic criticism is concerned with evaluation of beauty and ugliness, tastefulness and tastelessness, style and fashion. During Logical criticism the objection is made about an area, arrangement, action or situation on the ground that it does not make rational sense. Such an objection may involve without being reasonable and being negative. The Positive criticism draws attention to good aspect of something which is being overlooked or disregarded. It may also be a type of self justification or defense. Negative criticism explains an objection to something with the purpose of showing that it is wrong, false, mistaken, objectionable or dis-respectable. It tends to interpret an attack against a person. Practical criticism is made on the basis of practical experience of critic and thus very effective. Theoretical criticism is concerned with the meaning of ideas of fullness of theory or correspondence to reality of its purpose and the limitations of the view point of others.
 Moral criticism is concerned with right and wrong values, ethics or norms which people uphold, what is good or bad people do, or the right and wrong conditions which people face. It ranges from the justification or moral rules. This debate can be performed formally by lawyers, judges, religious entities and politicians or informally by common citizens. Self criticism or auto-critique, refers to the ability to realize the pros and cons of one’s own belief, thoughts, behaviors or results for others opinions. It might occur in private or group discussion. It can be final self attack up to suicide. Thus it is too hard for oneself. Everyone should believe in interpretation rather than finding faults in self or others.
Religious and Spiritual Criticism: 
It may require a great deal of respectful sensitivity to approach spiritual issue in a good way. The people are concerned to do what religions say is right to do. It is generally very difficult because the people’s spiritual beliefs are very personal and attached to divine matters. It deals with judging actions and ideas whether God or the spiritual guides will regard them good or bad for human beings. According to religious concepts, criticism of every kind is inhuman. Everyone should aim at proper evaluation.
How to Resolve problems of criticism?:
According to Benjamin Franklin, ’any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do’. You will be damned if you do or if you do not. To err is human. It is human nature to make mistake many a times. Try to understand and analyze the cause of challenge and perform what you feel in your heart to be right for you may be criticized any way. Therefore, no matter what kind of criticism is amid us. Generally speaking, there may be some truth in criticism even when it is given out of spite or bitterness. We should analyze and find something we can learn from it.

  • 1.     Examine your weakness, whether it is time management, intelligence, skilled thinking, providing information or any other solution. Do not worry about defensive concepts and carefully listen to constructive criticism.
  • 2.     Strong character, self control and forgiving can provide relief of better understanding.
  • 3.    A healthy personality is not rigid and continues grow along with the development of mind. It changes and adjusts with changing with circumstances. There is no fright and compromise on the principles.
  • 4.    Do not respond in anger, during different situations, as this will create adverse feelings in critic and yourself.
  • 5.    Try to keep calmness and treat other persons with regards and understanding.
  • 6.    Show that you have a strong personality but do not use it a reason to offer counter criticism. Your challenge may start un-wanted arguments. Loss of self control is potentially damaging.
  • 7.     Adjust yourself to the changing conditions intelligently, as and when required to do so, without being satisfied about your achievement. You have to systematize and regulate your thoughts with time.
  • 8.    Learn positively in one way that we can improve our inter-personal relationship with others. Use criticism wisely and as a learning experience.
  • 9.    Be assertive and emphatic
  • 10.Always prepare to negotiate using appropriate verbal language and non-verbal technique.
  • 11.  Criticism, if any, should be through soft and healthy deliberation. It should not be offensive with a view to mend the issue one is trying to improve. 

Suitable Quotes on Criticism:
·       Tom Murka—Get out of your comfort zone. Do not be ruled by inertia. Do not just do what you are best at, keep learning and improving yourself and learning new skills. Read books and encourage others to give you constructive criticism.
·        ‘Who do you spend time with, criticizer or one who encourages? Surround yourself with those who believe in you. Your life is too important for anything else.
·       Frank A. Clark—Criticism, like rain should be gentles enough to nourish a man’s growth without destroying the roots.
·       Emmer Fox—when we judge or criticize another person, it says nothing about that person; it merely says something about our own needs to be critical. Criticism is an indirect form of self boasting.
·       Aristotle—Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing and being nothing.
·       Neil Galman—when people tell you something is wrong or does not work for them, they are almost always right. When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong or how to fix it, they are almost always wrong.
·       Gary Chapman—People tend to criticize their spouse, most loudly in the area where they themselves have the deepest emotional needs.
·       ‘Criticism is the disapproval of people, not for having faults different from your own.’
·       ‘Before you go and criticize the younger generation, just remember who raised them.’
·       Abraham Lincoln—He has the right to criticize, who has a heart to help.
Avoid Evils of Criticism:
 According to religious concepts, criticism of every kind is inhuman. Everyone should aim at proper evaluation. It is with an open mind and positive outlook to sharpen the intellect and broaden the vision. It makes the things and thoughts more beautiful. Anyway, be courageous, ’I am, what I am’ and criticism does not shake me, however pungent it may be. I shall improve myself if something positive is said. I shall not be afraid of any verbal attack coming from any quarter. More so, I shall be free from any ill will. Those who indulge in acts of criticism with foul motives invite disaster for themselves in the long run. Those who do well to others enjoy the benevolence of Almighty God.
We should concentrate on virtuous concepts. Everyone can entreat, “I shall control my tongue when silence is required; my speech shall be soft and sweet; I shall be clean and righteous in thoughts and deeds; my spirit shall progress with love, compassion, tolerance, forgiveness, cooperation, sacrifice, selfless service and sincere faith in Divine Lord; I shall brighten the lamp of peace instead of cursing the darkness around and never blame or criticize others.”

Watch Video: Farmers of Sirsa Protest against Ban on Stubble Burning.
Thousands of farmers assembled today in Devi Lal  Park on bypass Road, held lectures and discussions against clamping of Ban orders for burning Rice stubble after harvesting. The farmers prepared a memorandum on the spot and then marched towards Mini Secretariat complex to hand over this memorandum to DC Sirsa for Haryana Govt to give immediate respite from this burning problem. Fearing the great number of farmer’s assembly, administration locked the entry gates of mini secretariat complex from all sides and deployed heavy police force to contain any possible unrest. When farmers demanded that DC Sirsa be present here to receive the memorandum, they were told that she is not in Sirsa. DDPO Sirsa, Mr. Preetpal Singh appeared after some time to pacify the farmers and receive the memorandum, the farmers got angry on this and said that "we are not here to harm anyone but we want that at least DC or ADC should receive the memorandum." After a lot of wait ADC Mr. Ajay Kumar Tomar IAS arrived at the gate and addressed the farmers, keenly listened to their questions, but expressed his helplessness for any quick remedy at this moment but assured that he is going to see the Chief Secretary to CM Haryana in Bhiwani and there he will handover the memorandum and pursue for a viable and timely intervention.
Farmers on the other hand said if nothing is done then the oncoming DIWALI will be a Black Diwali in letter and Spirit. At this point the farmers postponed further action and Dharna.

पराली जलाने पर प्रतिबंध का मामला तूल पकड़ता जा रहा है। आज जिलाभर के सैंकड़ो  किसानों ने बरनाला रोड स्थित देवीलाल पार्क में महापंचायत की। किसानों ने सरकार के खिलाफ नारेबाजी की। विभिन्न किसान संगठनों ने संयुक्त रूप से काली दिवाली मनाने का निर्णय लिया। साथ ही दिवाली के दिन पराली जलाने की घोषणा की। बरनाला रोड पर रोष मार्च निकालते हुए किसान लघु सचिवालय पहुंचे। आक्रोशित किसानों ने लघु सचिवालय का घेराव किया। मौके पर ज्ञापन देने के लिए किसान डीसी या एडीसी को बुलाने की मांग करते रहे। डीडीपीओ भी किसानों से ज्ञापन लेने पहुंचे लेकिन किसानों ने उन्हें ज्ञापन देने से इंकार कर दिया। बाद में एडीसी अजय तोमर किसानों से मिले और उनकी समस्या को  सरकार तक पहुंचाने का आश्वासन दिया। किसानों के प्रदर्शन के दृष्टिगत भारी पुलिस बल लघु सचिवालय में तैनात किया गया था।  इससे पहले किसानों ने  पराली न जलाने देने के सरकारी आदेशों के खिलाफ जमकर नारेबाजी की। प्रदर्शनकारी किसानों ने सरकार की नीतियों को किसानों को उजाडऩे वाली करार दिया। सरकार व प्रशासन पराली जलाने वाले किसानों पर जुर्माना लगा रहा है और उन्हें सजा देने की बात कर रहे हैं इसे किसान कतई बर्दाश्त नहीं करेगा।

किसान स्वर्ण सिंह विर्क और विकल पचार  ने बताया कि सिरसा का अधिकतर रकबा धान का है। पर्यावरण की सुरक्षा को लेकर इस बार प्रशासन की ओर से आदेश पारित किए गए हैं कि जो भी किसान धान की पराली को जलाएगा, उसपर जुर्माना किया जाएगा। कई किसानों पर प्रशासन द्वारा पराली जलाए जाने पर जुर्माना भी किया गया है, जिससे किसान वर्ग में रोष है। किसानों का कहना है कि पराली न जलाने से जहां उनकी गेहूं की बिजाई लेट होगी, वहीं प्रति एकड़ हजारों रुपए का खर्च भी उन्हें वहन करना पड़ेगा।

Live Forever- Dr. TN Chugh

Live Forever- Dr. TN Chugh
10 October, 2016
Pictures and Videos: GS Mann, Amar Singh
The subject conveys endless, immortal, imperishable, incessant, perennial, perpetually beyond dooms day and eternal concept of living.
According to Plato, ‘I have good hope that there is something after death.’
It should be our firm persuasion that immortality of our soul is not a delusion and we should cherish its bliss to our last breath. The noble thoughts of Augustine Sermon suggest that immortality is health and this life is a long sickness.
Immortal status in organisms:
Single celled (unicellular) living organisms are considered as eternal because they multiply through binary fission. It occurs in protozoan, bacteria, single celled algae and fungi. One organism starts living as two identical individuals with same quality and quantity of genetic material. Multi-cellular and complex organisms appeared through evolution. Therefore, death acquired certainty. Among plants Banyan tree lives for about 3000 years and among animals the life span of tortoise is more than 200 years.
Cloning is another prospect of producing two or more young ones from single fertilized egg as in a case of identical twins. Attempts have been successful in sheep and a few more animals’ types. Efforts are being made in human species. An instance mentioned in religious literature reveal that king Dhritrashtra had one hundred clone princes.
Human Beings:
Human race is most sublime, supreme and distinguished creation of Almighty God. The management of our life must involve superb thinking, planning, actions and proper utilization of resources with positive aspects to achieve most favorable results. Every person should introspect from time to time to work for better prospects and prosperity.
Life span of a person is limited. The cause, period and place of death remain unknown to everyone. It is being regulated through fortune governed by Divine Lord.
Causes of Death:
Natural death is due to old age; accidental problems with heavy vehicles; fire at home or outside; volcanic eruptions; earth quakes; floods; cloud burst; electric shocks; attack through vulgar animals like tiger group, crocodile, shark etc.; strong hit through heavy cattle, elephant, rhino etc,; bite through poisonous animals like snakes, scorpions, spiders, harmful fishes etc.; murders through known or unknown persons; consumption of poisonous food; non-suitable medicines; ill effects in vital organs like heart, brain, kidneys, lungs, liver etc.; non-communicable and congenital diseases like cancer, diabetes, hemophilia, thalesemia etc.; chronic state of many communicable diseases especially viral problems; and many more causes. Do not fear death because this event is certain. However, death clock is uncertain. No one can predict the date and time of death.  
Aspects of suicide:
Suicide is not only the process of self killing but an act of self murder. This concept is not only physical and judicial crime but also spiritual arrogance. Persons developing the tendency of suicide seem to suffer from Psychological distress, physical disorders, intoxicants, financial problems and social depression. Non-fatal attempt of suicide cause long term injuries as observed in about ten million persons per year. Traditionally, suicide seems to be an offence towards meaning of life, dishonor in religion and God. Thus the mis-concept of suicide can be avoided through timely medical assistance, financial help, social acceptance and spiritual elevation. The world suicide prevention day is observed annually on 15th September with the help of W.H.O.
Longevity of Human Life:
The person having good health and refined qualities live for a longer period. We should rejoice our kind living and add years to life so as to ensure that the elderly age become peaceful, enriching and productive. The experienced old age should be meaningful and active, without any distress. Fortunately, the enzyme ‘telomerase’ was discovered in 1980 which is considered as the fountain of youth. This enzyme reawakens the dying cells so that normal aging will be slowed down or even reversed. In Greek mythology, Panacea provides universal remedy which can cure many diseases. It may prolong the life indefinitely. With increase in awareness and alertness, the global life of 60 years and above is likely to grow from7.5% of total population in 2001 to about 17% by 2050. Certain scientists convey that the average human age may reach up to 200 years.     
Attempts and Efforts to achieve Greatness:
According to William Shakespeare, a few are born great, some achieve greatness and very few have greatness thrust upon them. Generally speaking, greatness is not inborn. It has to be acquired through innovative tasks performed with esteemed knowledge and skill, dedication and perseverance. Life certainly involves all the practical things of daily living. A person lives once and the virtuous living is praiseworthy. Every person should realize broad existential themes with very purpose and objectives of life; For instance, become an eminent player, be elite in industry; attain prominent research in science, arts, culture, music or profession; work with dedication for the nation through noble qualities; create abundance of wealth for family and social help, acquire prominent status in education, literature or religion; achieve martyrdom etc. Contemplate upon following opinions to acquire success and greatness:
1.     Imagine for prospective tasks and write upon your diary.
2.                        Establish total control on positive thoughts and virtuous actions. Do not make it only mechanical, commercial and trade worthy. Always sustain optimistic attitude, work with honesty and courage.
3.                        Make righteous plans to achieve desired objectives. Life is what we make it. Be humane and render selfless service so as to create goodwill in society.
4.                        Decide your destination and try to achieve it with strength and intelligence. Work hard with complete dedication and skill.
5.                        Develop team spirit and work in cooperation with companions.
6.                        Do not stop learning; acquire motivation and guidance from spiritual master, good literature, teachers and prominent persons of particular field. Always dedicate on improvement and innovation.
7.                        Acquire virtuous qualities of honesty, humility, contentment, tolerance, kindness, justice, universal brotherhood and respect for all religions.
8.                        Discard the bad habits of anger, hatred, lust, greed, anxiety, ego, bribery, gambling, commercial speculation, intoxicants, violence etc.
9.                        Never give up until you succeed. Strong determination even in weak persons can overcome tough situations or opponents through willpower. Thomas A. Edison was able to give us electricity after many instances of failure.
10.                    Never surrender to weakness and mistakes. The solution may take some time when you are learning new skills.
11.                      Avoid fear and nervousness. Face challenging situations with great aplomb.
12.                     Analyze your qualities from time to time. Ask yourself empowering questions, “What can I do to make me a better and successful person.”
13.                     Celebrate your accomplishments embraced in gratitude.
You are master of your destiny and creator of your future. You can make your life extra-ordinary as you desire. Dare to be great and manifest that greatness. Confirm your ideals with ambition and dedication to success. Greatness ultimately means not only to improve your excellence but also to bring excellence to those around you.     
   Certain noble qualities are suggested for good and great persons------
G---Gentleness, generosity, gorgeous, giant, grateful. Gigantic, gallant, gaiety, gainful, genius, guide.
R---Righteous, reliable, realistic, regulated, reformative, radiant, reasonable, remedial, rewarding, receptive, relevant, responsible.
E---Elite, ethical, explicit, exemplary, esteemed.
A---Acceptable, amiable, affectionate, admirable, attentive, analytical, assistive, astounding, assertive, apt, attributable, authoritative, absorbing, awakened, alluring, amazing, aspirant, assured, axiom, appropriate, aspirant.
T---Thoughtful, thrilling, trustworthy, thought provoking, tension free, tee-totaller, tender, triumphant, tolerant, truthful, total.     
Eternity of Life:
God is the eternal Divine Power. He is omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient, original truth, pre-eminent, infinite, sole creator and sole benefactor. Almighty God has also created time and special messengers (true saints) for the benefit of humanity. Our eternal life can be blessed by God because it reflects the way,” God loves us.” To be afraid of anyone other than God Himself is like dishonor to God because He is supplement of spirit. The eternal life continues after death does not reflect time, rather experiences changes in state of being. The body and mind leave the world on death. Our soul is not the victim of aging, sickness and death because it is a divine bliss and thus immune to such changes.
Divine Bliss for Eternity:
We need to live with eternal perspective in everything we do as believer, working with wisdom and praying for spiritual master. Only our prominent thoughts affect our priorities and actions. We can live forever even with an impactful shorter life. With firm belief in truth, we develop complete faithfulness in Him. His response is external in scope and entrust in greater opportunities to live, serve and witness His benevolent ways.
According to religious status of Hinduism, supported by Plato, Pythogros, Socrates and many more philosophers, spiritual approach is immortal. It refers to the transformation of soul from body to body but remains endless. People live many ‘lives’, each influenced by the actions of previous race. If they live well, ‘Karma’ improves and makes the next life cycle better. The soul remains the same; it just travels between different forms. Certain persons believe that the human performing noble actions are rewarded with heaven and those with wicked deeds are subjected to hell.
The virtuous qualities remain everlasting and can make them, ‘living eternal.’ The patriots of any age, prominent players, artists, scholars, scientists, etc., earn remarkable status in society due to excellence. But the ascetics and saints belonging to various nations deserve maximum reverence and remembrance from their followers since they are linked with God and convey the divine message of spiritual enhancement; for instance, our revered Saints, Gurus, Sufis, Sears, etc. They are considered as Incarnations of Almighty God. The everlasting existence of eternal entities is exhibited with great regard through noble literature, cast images, sculptures, statues and eminent awards.

Nobody has lived forever, nor can anyone live forever now, but can become everlasting through excellent thoughts and actions. Therefore, make attempts to achieve truthful life with optimistic attitude which help to gain divine bliss and attain eternity. Adopt noble qualities of self reliance, admirable tasks, innovative concepts, enthusiasm, strong determination, appreciable team spirit and overall spiritual motivation.
