The highlight of celebrations was a colourful Republic Day Parade in Delhi with contingents from the armed forces, police, para-military forces and Ex-servicemen marching along on the capital's Rajpath. President A P J Abdul Kalam took the salute. King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud of Saudi Arabia was the chief guest on the occasion.

The main features of the parade included mounted and mechanised columns including equipment from the Defence Research and Development organisation. Also on display were 24 tableau from different states, ministries and industries.

Despite elaborate security arrangements in and around the capital there were thousands of people who lined up along the route of the parade to watch the magnificent display of India's military might and cultural diversity. The Republic day of the country was celebrated in the Gulf region and Middle East region. The National Flag was unfurled at the embassies by the Ambassadors. Indian Expatriates in large numbers took part in the celebrations.

On the eve of Republic Day INDIAN President A P J Abdul Kalam called for the political parties to orient themselves towards development politics, saying the people have the right and an urge to live in a developed country, in a address to INDIAN citizen. Emphasising the need for transparent life, he said that accepting motivated gifts extinguishes the human dignity.

Everyone has to practice values of honesty, sincerity and tolerance in day-to-day living and this will eventually elevate our politics of statesmanship, Dr Kalam added.''Our 540 million youth, who are below 25 years of age, should see an imprint of great leaders in every action of Parliament members. They can become their role model to bring a dynamic change in politics and the development mssions,'' he observed. The President's comment is considered significant in view of recent corruption cases involving some MPs who were caught on camera accepting money for raising questions in Parliament. Calling for development oriented politics, the President said that immediately after elections all political parties should converge on developmental poltics with a common mission and work with zeal to uplift the 260 million people living below the poverty line and remove illiteracy and unemployment.

''I would like to visualise a situation in which the political parties perform in the environment of developmental politics in our country, competing with each other, in putting forth their focused developmental vision through their manifesto,'' Kalam said. He asked public administrators to look for the last person to be serviced and provide him/her service with a kind heart. ''Similarly, judiciary and law enforcement agencies should look for the marginalised persons, who cannot even reach you because of the multiple gates and layers betweenthe judiciary and the citizens, Kalam noted. The President said progress of the nation, sustaining the development and increasing the earning capacities of individuals are the critical needs of the country.

He also stressed the need for launching an intensive and extensive movement for cherishing our value system as the nation has to provide leadership to 540 million youth who are the most powerful resource for translating our vision of transforming India into a developed nation well before 2020 in an integrated way.Pointing out that any country is as good as its citizens, Kalam said their ethos, values and character is reflected in the country's make up and determine its progress or stagnation. The need of the hour is the disciplined action by all citizens and the education system has to concentrate on cultivating a sense of eternal values and discipline among citizens, the President added.

Advocating compulsory NCC training for minimum 18 months to all youth during senior secondary school or at graduation level, he said this would ensure ''discipline in politics, business, judiciary, bureaucracy, scientific pursuits, sports and games.''Stating that transparency starts from home, Kalam exhorted children to launch a movement from their home against corruption. They should use the ''tool of love'' to bring back their parents who have deviated from transparency and urged parents to abide by the suggestions of children.

Citing his personal experience on how his father rebuked him for accepting a gift on his behalf, Kalam asked youth not to be carried away by motivated gifts at the expense of one's personality and dignity. Mother play a crucial role in giving principles of truth and teachers imbibing vision to students, the President added. ''All of us have to practice the values of honesty, sincerity and tolerance in our day-to-day living. This will elevate our politics of statesmanship. We have to collectively inculcate a positive attitude to what we can do for our country so that we will be able to benefit ourselves.'' Enumerating the developments made in the interlinking of rivers, providing urban amenities in rural areas and spread of education through newly created virtual universities, Kalam said that development and technology has started reaching the rural areas.

However, to strengthen the process, scientists, technologists and healthcare specialists will have to play a crucial role, he said. The President also stressed the need to give the highest priority to HIV/AIDS treatment and developing AIDS vaccines before 2007.

Healthcare personnel should work together coherently towards the mission of providing good health to all citizens and make the country near disease-free, he said.Kalam urged scientists and technologists to immediately undertake national mission for increasing Solar Photo Voltaic Cell efficiency using nano-technology, research in proteomics to identify disease causing mechanism and develop new methods of treatments. He also asked them to improve earthquake and rain forecast and develop products in healthcare, electronics and materials to meet the national requirements using convergence of nano, bio and info technologies.

Special input from INDIAN government’s news agency

Hindu devotees of an INDIAN village worshipped an infant baby for five days

A child survived for five days without breathing, without taking mother’s milk and above all this child was on siting position after the birth. Do you imagine birth of such child but it happened in a village of India, where Hindu devotees gave him status of God due to his abnormal physic.

On January 19, a resident of Kolan village, located in Central INDIA, Kalawati Wife of Dadoli Kol gave birth to her ninth child who was having abnormal physic. The tribal first scared and after sometime they began to worship him. Gradually, the news spread in whole village and villagers began to come at Kalawati’s home for “Darshan” (a word in Hindi used for having a sight of God). Although the child had died after five days of his birth but people were worshipping him as incarnation of Lord Shiva. The child was having long hair in the shapes of snakes on his back. His hair looked like the hair of Lord Shiva. Head of child was also abnormal, hard and heavy as compare to normal children.

At last the superstition and devotion has been closed, as the abnormal child died on January 24. Block medical officer Dr. Shyam sharma reached the place where he examined the child and told about death of child, but family members and devotees were not agree to bury the body. But the body of abnormal child cemented in presence of police. Even after his bury the devotees are coming continuously and offering coconut and scarf at his tomb.

INDIA's Superstition: An INDIAN child offers tongue to Goddess

INDIA considers as a master of religion, faith and holy spirit but some wrong beliefs and superstitious activities in religions especially in Hinduism defaming the image of INDIA. Many Hindus had already accepted superstitions as their tradition like sacrifice animals and unfortunately their new generation following this tradition due to illitracy. A recent case of superstition in rural INDIA came into light.

Jagdeesh Pal, a 12-year-old boy, of Chhap village in Umariya district, of Central INDIAN state of Madhya Pradesh, has slashed his tongue by knife and offered to Goddess, as he thought after offering tongue, Goddess would fullfilled his all desires.

On Sunday night many Hindu devotees gathered at Sheramai Temple in Chhap village for offering prayer to Goddess. During prayer Jagdeesh Pal slashed his tongue and offered it to the goddess. After offering his tongue Jagdeesh Pal became unconsious and amazing thing is that instead of taking Jagdeesh to hospital, all devotees continued their prayer without any intruption and chanting Devi's Bhajans ( Devotional songs in mother Goddess praise ).

"I do not think that Jagdeesh has done anything wrong, he is free for showing his devotion for Goddess. He offered his tongue to goddess for showing his devotion and faith, and his way of showing devotion should not consider as superstitions, that may hurt his pios religious feelings", Chandramohan Das Vaishnav Bairagi, priest of Sheramai temple has said.

Dr. B.C. Chaturvedi, a retired medical officer of Civil Hospital in Aalot has said "I have seen Nihaal Bai, and also checked her health condition. I think she is healthy as her body's pulse and blood pressure, both are normal. I think her body get sufficient calory energy from tea, as she use to take tea three times in a day, that may provide about 700 calorie energy to her body, which is normally needed for a woman."

Baba Ramdev vs Vrinda Karat writes Babu Suseelan

Vrinda Karat's oppressed and stifled mindset was at its best when she issuedmeaningless and highly objectionable statements against Swami Ramdev.Indian Communists like Karat have distinguished themselves by the utmost lack of giftedness, by creative impotence and incapacity for thought. Their overt and covert hatred for India and Hindu culture was evident in Karat's pronouncement against Swami Ramdev.

The Communists have entered into an alliance with the multinational corporations and Christian fundamentalist>groups to destroy and malign Hindus and Hindu cultural ethos. While issuing pro-forma condemnation against Swami Ramdev, Vrinda karat and her fellow ilk have nothing to say about Jihadi terrorism, coercive religious conversion, and the economic exploitation of poor Hindus by the multi-national corporations.The more we understand how Communists think and function, the less likely weare to be paralyzed by the shock of their behavior, and the less likely we are to be taken by their ingenious cunning and manipulation.

Communism, Islam and Christianity are closed systems with rigid ideology.They oppose each other. But in India, they have established an unholy nexus to destroy our culture, social stability and spiritual heritage. Lately Communists, aligned with the multinational criminal organizations have been attacking Hindu social institutions and economic interest to please their slave masters. Most Hindus have no idea how ant-Indian the hardcore Communists truly are. The agenda of the unholy alliance has always been directed to attacking all aspects of our culture, tradition, economy, including undermining our military capability.

Vrinda Karat and their fellow travelers are truly a Fifth Column at work in Bharat.Christian-Muslim-Corporate-Communist alliance is designed to wage a battle against Hindutva and Bharat. Vrinda Karat and her fellow hired coolies are counseled to perform their tasks in such a way not to expose the dark hidden hands. These Communist obscurantist desire to hold the masses in darkness.It is also a terrible mistake to think, that the Communist condemnation of Swami Ramdev signifies the condemnation of Jihadi terrorism, deceptive Christian conversion and importation of discarded western Christian values inthe name of Globalization. Anti-Hindutva has become so deeply enmeshed withthe communist radical obsession of anti-Indian phenomenon? It takes lots of different forms.The challenge we face today is daunting. But we must meet them and conquerthem. If we don't, who will?
