The sealing issue is now becoming one of the most critical issue among the trading community since it has vital bearing on livelihood of lakhs of people in Delhi. Sealing of one shop is disturbing livelihood of about 20 families. Gradually this issue is inching towards 2019 Elections as the traders are minutely assessing the role of political parties and in mutual conversation of traders it is becoming an Election issue for 2019. There are about 8 lakh commercial,establishments in Delhi providing employment to nearly 40 lakh people. The families of traders and their employees are also attached to establishments. On the other hand about 10 lakh people like Courier, Transporter, Hand Cart Owner, artisans etc. are also dependent upon the traders for their earning.
Such a big chunk of people if converted into a Vote Bank could bring mandate to its own choice. Some kind of deliberations and discussions are underway among traders in Delhi. If traders also have to face the wreath of sealing then Traders and their employees can easily convert themselves into a Vote Bank. Even otherwise, the traders are disillusioned from the current business scenario. Beside sealing, the complexities of GST, 100% FDI in single brand retail, No use of Mudra Yojna for traders and over and above gross neglect of traders by the Government are some of the burning points which can damage political fabric to a great extent.
The sealing issue is also important to trade of Delhi and its economy as well. If situation continues, there will be sharp decline in Delhi trade in coming days and huge loss of revenue to the Government. In last 3 months trade has declined to about 40% in Delhi. The important question is what is the fault of traders ? When Government Agencies proved utterly failed in development of Delhi why only traders are being penalised and traders and their employees are being deprived of their earning by sealing the business establishments.

After Batra shocked Feng 3-2 (11-8, 8-11, 7-11, 11-9, 11-7) in the opening singles, Mengyu had equalized for Singapore with a straight game win over Patkar.
Batra then proved to be too good for Yihan, who failed to read her deceptive strokes. The Singaporean put a back hand long as the Indian completed a 3-0 (11-7, 11-4, 11-7), leading to wild celebrations.

UNITED STATES CONGRESSMAN: INVESTIGATE RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION OF HINDUS IN RUSSIA
NEW YORK (9 April 2018) — In a major victory for Russian-born Hindus facing escalating attacks from government-aligned authorities in Russia, U.S. Congressman Gregory Meeks this week called on the U.S. government’s religious freedom monitor to investigate a disturbing pattern of attacks against Hindus in Russia. Meeks’ request, reported Friday in U.S. media, comes as religious freedom concerns in Russia are on the rise.
In a letter submitted to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, Meeks called on the Commission to exercise its mandate to investigate ongoing attacks against Hindu spiritual leader Shri Prakash Ji and his family in Moscow. Guru Ji, as he is known to his followers, has been the victim of verbal and physical harassment as well as overreach by Russian government agents looking to brand his religion as “extremist.”
“We are thankful for Congressman Meeks’ commitment to our cause,” said Shri Prakash Ji, who operates a prominent Indian cultural center outside Moscow and is the country’s foremost Hindu spiritual leader. “As a federal representative for one of the most diverse regions of the United States – and with one of the largest Indian American constituencies in the country – his voice means a great deal to our cause around the globe. It is our sincere hope that his constituents and his allies in Congress can continue to raise this issue with American officials.”
Attacks on Hindus have escalated since 2011, when a group of activists attempted to ban the Bhagavad Gita – Hinduism’s holy book. The situation escalated last fall when a number of men dressed as police officers stormed into Guru Ji’s cultural center to seize documents. A group of men also attempted to force their way into the family’s home, alleging Guru Ji’s followers were part of an extremist cult.
Meeks’ letter calls attention in particular to the actions of Alexander Dvorkin, a prominent anti-cult activist who has been using his authority on Russia’s Expert Religious Studies Council to target minorities, including spearheading the reputational and physical attacks on Guru Ji. Dvorkin and the Council have been singled out as concerning actors by USCIRF beginning in a 2009 report.
The ongoing attacks have prompted several pledges of support for the Russian Hindu community. Last year, Russian members of parliament held two events in the Duma to raise awareness about the attacks, which are just the latest in a series of religious freedom concerns to arise in the country. Non-orthodox Christians, as well as Jews, Muslims, and Buddhists, have been singled out as “others” and erroneously arrested, spuriously charged, and run out of the country as the Russian government uses the catch-all charge of “extremism” to persecute minority groups in an attempt to unite the country under a nationalist identity and the Russian Orthodox Church.
Today was a proud moment for our country.
Dr (Prof.) Anil Arora and his team set a new world record of “Largest gathering of joint replacement patients”, in the presence of Guinness World Records team at Delhi, on 8th April 2018. With this setting, Prof Arora’s Knee and Hip Surgery Clinic finds a place in Guinness World Records.
Dr (Prof.) Anil Arora is Senior Director and Chief Surgeon at Knee and Hip Surgery Clinic & Global Ortho, Senior Director & Unit Head in Department of Orthopaedic and Joint Replacement at Max Super Speciality Hospital and Institute of Joint Replacement, Patparganj, Delhi, Chairman of Global Knee and Hip Foundation, India. The World Record Setting Event was followed by CARE Program for Joint Replacement patients. Dr Arora told that this event was held, to dispel myths surrounding joint replacement surgeries and to remove misconception from the mind of a common man that joint replacement surgery is not successful. The previous was record was of 100 participants. In this gathering of 200 patients who had their joint replaced, participated in various physical activities including races and running. They also danced to the tune of some popular songs. These patients who had already undergone joint replacement surgery, shared their life changing successful stories.
Prof. Arora told that when one talks of joint replacement surgeries in our country, people carry negativity in their mind regarding the surgery and are not sure about the results. Joint Replacement Surgery is considered the most successful surgery of the last century and it can give you predictably positive results, if done by an expert, in a proper environment and by a proper technique. Millions of patients are there in our country who can derive benefits of joint replacement surgery but do not come forward for this surgery out of fear. This event was organized to showcase the positive results of joint replacement surgery and to remove the fear in minds of people about joint replacements. Prof Arora showed many couples (Husband and Wife) who had undergone Total Knee Replacement Surgery.
Prof. Arora told that there is no other better way to give this positive message to the society than showing live examples of hundreds of joint replaced patients who shared their life changing stories on joint replacement surgery.
People also have a misconception that it requires prolonged bed rest after knee or hip replacement surgery. On the contrary Dr Arora showed a case, where a lady who was bedridden for last 30 years, was able to walk independently 48 hours after PINLESS Computer Navigation Technology for both knee replacements. The lady was able to back on her feet again after 30 years!!! For this Dr Arora was awarded a record in Limca Book of Records in 2017.
Cambridge Analytica whistleblower says Facebook data could be in Russia
Balraj Saggar. Are we not becoming slaves of English language and culture?
Unfortunate is the country where a foreign language is introduced at the first primary, even at the pre-primary stage. It not only establishes the supremacy of that language in the minds of small kids at their budding stage but also affects their power of understanding and expression. The system exerts a lot of pressure on their minds for learning that language, taking away their usual development of expression. It is an established fact that if you attain mastery over one language for which mother tongue is the best, it is easy to attain it over other languages too. During early years, let children be taught through mother tongue where aim should be to develop their power of expression as much as possible. National language, if it is not the mother tongue, may be introduced at third or fourth class level and English or any other foreign language in 6th class and as an optional subject. Domination of English in India is responsible for many of the ills.
We are adopting not only the language but also are highly influenced by its cultural background. In such a situation, it is but natural that Indians are drifting away from their rich cultural values. In order to set things right, it will be appropriate to make national as well as regional languages as medium of instruction for all subjects up to the highest level for which primary concern is to develop requisite vocabulary in all subjects for which Sanskrit is a vast source to depend upon. If this is not done, India will always remain slave to English language and culture.
