Now it’s history how Arysamaj was opposed in it’s initial days :I found a pamphlet in my archives collection against Arya Samaj issued by “Shri Kashi Pandit Sabha”. It states that these days many people are initiating new sects in Hunduism, which are against Puran and the set customs. Therefore the association of 27 Pandits of Kashi/ Varansi prohibits Hindus to follow them. And if someone follows them he should be boycott from all social touch and relations.Short Details of Arya Samaj : ( Source Wikipedia)Arya Samaj / आर्य समाज, is a monotheistic Indian Hindu reform movement that promotes values and practices based on the belief in the infallible authority of the Vedas. The samaj was founded by the sannyasi (ascetic) Dayanand Saraswati on 10 April 1875. Members of the Arya Samaj believe in one God and reject the worship of idols.Motto: “कृण्वन्तो विश्वमार्यम्”(Make the world noble! )Formation10 April 1875.Bombay, Bombay Presidency, British India (present-day Mumbai, Maharashtra, India)FounderDayananda SaraswatiBetween 1869 and 1873, Dayanand began his efforts to reform orthodox Hinduism in India. He established Gurukul (Vedic schools) which emphasised Vedic values, culture, Satya (virtue) and Sanatana Dharma (the essence of living). The schools gave separate educations to boys and girls based on ancient Vedic principles. The Vedic school system was also to relieve Indians from the pattern of a British education.The first Vedic school was established at Farrukhabad in 1869. Fifty students were enrolled in its first year. This success led to the founding of schools at Mirzapur (1870), Kasganj (1870), Chhalesar (Aligarh) (1870) and Varanasi (1873).At the schools, students received all meals, lodging, clothing and books free of charge. The discipline was strict. Students were not allowed to perform murti puja (worship of sculpted stone idols). Rather, they performed Sandhyavandanam (meditative prayer using Vedic mantras with divine sound) and agnihotra .The study of Sanskrit scriptural texts which accepted the authority of the Vedas were taught. They included the Vedas, Upanishads, Aranyaka, Kashika, Nirukta, Mahabhasya, Ashtadhyayi, Darshanas

Does adultery occur only through making physical relations or does mental or verbal thinking or interaction also fall under the
category of adultery?
व्यभिचार क्या केवल शारीरिक संबंध बनाने से ही होता है अथवा मानसिक या वाचिक रूप से हुए सोच या बातचीत आदि भी व्यभिचार की श्रेणी में आता है?

आज कवि सम्मेलनों के नाम से होनेवाले आयोजनों में द्विअर्थी शब्दो और वाक्यों का प्रयोग, मंच पर कविता पढ़ती कवियत्रियों से पुरुष मंच संचकनकर्ताओं द्वारा उल्टे सीधे संबंध जोड़कर सस्ती हंसी और तालियां बटोरना यह सब क्या है ?
इसी तरह सोशल मीडिया पर उत्तेजक फोटो या सस्ती उत्तेजक श्रृंगारिक कविता आदि पोस्ट कर रूप लोभी स्त्री को भोग्य समझने वालों की भीड़ जुटाकर आत्म मुग्ध होना किस श्रेणी में है ?

“होलिका दहन से आने वाले वर्ष का शकुन देखना”

जयपुर, राजस्थान
महाकाल मंदिर, उज्जैन, मध्य प्रदेश

हमारे देश में आने वाले समय की पूर्व सूचना अर्थात भविष्य कथन का एक अपना महत्वपूर्ण स्थान और प्रचलन रहा है। हवा की दिशा, सूर्योदय/सूर्यास्त के समय हवा की दिशा, आसमान के रंग, तिथि विशेष को मौसम तथा वार और नक्षत्र से भविष्य के बारे में आकलन किया जाता था। यह आकलन अधिकांशतया इतना सटीक होता था कि आम आदमी तक को भी यह ज्ञान था और वह अपने अपने स्थान पर यह आकलन/observation करता था। आज इसी कड़ी में मैं आपको होलिका दहन के समय उठने वाली झाल/अग्नि की लौ के बारे में चर्चा करना चाहूंगा। इस आकलन के लिए बाकायदा सामान्यजन में लोकोक्ति के रूप में एक पूरी कविता प्रचलन में है , जो नीचे इस वर्ष की होली दहन के समय उठने वाली लौ के साथ उद्धृत कर रहा हूं, ताकि आने वाले वर्ष में हम स्वयं भी इस के अनुसार कितना सही कितना गलत का वास्तविक आकलन कर सकें।

” होली झाल को को करो विचार
शुभ और अशुभ को फल यह सार,
पश्चिम वायु बहे अति सुंदर
समै नीपजे सकल वसुंधर
पूरब दिस की बहे जो बाय
कछु भीजे कछु कोरो जाय
दक्खन बाय बहे धन नास
समय नीफजे सतही घास
उत्तर बाय बहे दड़बड़िया
धरा अचूक पाणी पडिया
जो झकोरे चारों बाय
दुखी हो परजा जीव डराय
जो पे खाल अकाशे जाय
तो पिरथी पे संग्राम कराय।”

इस वर्ष अर्थात आज जब होली मंगल हुई ( होलिका दहन) हुआ तब मैने देखा कि झाल सीधी आकाश की ओर उठ रही थी, अर्थात किसी भी तरफ की कोई हवा नहीं थी, और उपरोक्त लोकोक्ति के परिप्रेक्ष्य में आने वाले वर्ष में संसार में आपसी लड़ाई झगडे , मार काट और युद्ध आदि का जोर रहेगा। यह परीक्षण आज दो जगह का नोट किया गया, पहला जयपुर में और दूसरा उज्जैन महाकाल मंदिर में , जो एक दूसरे से 500 किलोमीटर से भी अधिक दूर स्थित हैं । लेकिन यह दृष्टव्य है कि दोनो ही स्थानों पर होली की झाल सीधी आकाश में ही उठ रही थी।

“Golden egg that is killing the Goose: Increased revenue for Centre and State Governments with Higher Petroleum rates”

  • Petroleum product for Centre and State Governments is like a goose that is currently laying golden eggs of revenue. This Golden egg is actually killing the Goose, Before the golden eggs kill the goose, the governments must reduce its dependence by freezing tax share on petroleum products.
  • For every Rs 100 spent on petrol by Indians, Rs 63 goes to Centre and State as tax in Dec. 2020
  • Fuel prices at the pump have not trended the same way as crude prices since 2014. This is because the tax component accruing to both the Centre and the States has significantly risen (from 31% of retail price for petrol in Delhi in 2014 to 63% in December 2020).
  • Despite crude prices falling in 2015-16, petrol prices remained unchanged as the tax component of the price at the pump was raised.
  • When crude prices started to rise again from 2017, petrol prices also increased.
  • In 2020, when crude prices fell again, petrol prices at the pump did not remain unchanged as in 2015-16 but increased, because of a surge in taxes.
  • Since 2015, the Union Government has used the reduction in crude prices to increase taxes and effectively keep the retail prices of petrol and diesel within a narrow band. If the fall in global crude oil prices in the last five years were fully passed through to consumers, the rerail price of refined products would have been lower by Rs 0.50/litre (l) for every $1/barrel reduction in crude prices. In other words, every $1/barrel reduction in crude price is an opportunity to increase taxes by Rs 0.50/litre. To understand it in simplest way  with every increased one rupee on retail price of petrol Centre and state governments earns sixty three paisa more.
  • Excise  (Center Govt tax) on petrol increased by over 200 percent from about Rs 10.38 per litre in March 2014 to Rs 32.98 per litre in September 2020. For diesel, the increase was a much higher 600 percent in the same period from Rs 4.58 per liter to Rs 31.83 per liter.  Increase in value added tax (State tax) [VAT] was far less steep in most States. For petrol, VAT increased by roughly 60 percent from Rs 11.9 per litre to about Rs 18.94 per liter and for diesel VAT increased by about 68 percent from Rs 6.41 per litre to Rs 10.8 per liter in the same period in Delhi. The fall in the crude was a modest 28 percent from $84.16/barel in 2014-15 to $60.47/barrel in 2019-20
  • My point is with the everyday rate monitoring system of Petroleum products day by day Govts tax share is increasing. Should Centre and state Governments not freeze the tax as on perticular day and there after if rates increase … It should be only change in basic price. Thus the pressure of common men will be much lower.
  • But for this governments have to prove themselves true people welfare state and should not make petroleum product sale to mint the money and fill treasuries .
  • It is true that with the higher rates of Petroleum products people will be discouraged of frequent use of personal vehicles and shall encourage the use of electric vehicles looking for alternative sources of fuel for vehicles. With this one more advantage will be there of reducing pollution and making earth more 🍏💚.

Great Conjunction 2020, Saturn and Jupiter with it’s 3 moons ( Photo and Script: Rao Shiv)

The last time these two planets were seen so close to each other on July 16, 1623. At that time i.e. 397 years ago, they were at a distance of 5 arc minutes. Before that, the two planets Jupiter and Saturn were seen this close together in medieval times, in 1226.

Thus, the coming together of Saturn and Jupiter on December 21, 2020, will begin a two-hundred-year epoch known as the Age of Air.

When will these planets be again seen close?

The next time these two huge gas planets will come closer on March 15, 2080. That means you can see a similar phenomenon after approx a gap of 60 years.

Tomorrow on 21st Dec 2020 they will be on closest point and could be seen with naked eyes…. ! (Photo taken By Rao Shivraj Inayati on 20th Dec 2020 at 19:15 hrs.)

NOT TO MISS OPPORTUNITY

“उत्तुंग शिखर कैलाश के ही, क्यूं तुमको रूचे
भोले बाबा क्यूं तुम्हे हिम का आगा़र ही जचे।

अविरल बहती गंग धार सदा मस्तक पर ही झरे
काल कराल व्याल सर्प के ही तुम आभूषण धरे।

मूषक अभयदान गणपति से पा, सर्प से ना डरे
शिवा के सिंह से भी तोहार नंदी कभी ना डरे

मोर का प्रिय आहार, नाग ही आभूषण तिहार है।
नंदी तोहार प्रिय वाहन सिंह का ही आहार है।

जा बैठे कैलाश तुम, जहां बर्फज़ का साम्राज्य है
उपजै नहीं एक दाना ऊपर से तुमको‌ वैराग्य है।

चित्र विचित्र गण तिहारे वैसे ही सब वाहन है
अर्धांगिनी अन्नपूर्णा ही ‘राव’ सब का पेट भरे।” राव शिवराज इनायती 16/12/2020
