गुजरात में होगी दुनिया की सबसे ऊंची मूर्ति

आज सरदार पटेल जयंती है। वास्तव में यह हमारे देश के लिए देवीय आशीर्वाद था कि स्वतंत्रता के समय एक राज नेता और सरकार के सदस्य के रुप में वल्ल्भभाई पटेल जैसा महामानव हमारे पास था।

 

अगस्त 1947 चुनौती भरा महीना था। एक ओर सदियों की दासता से मुक्त होकर भारत माता स्वतंत्र हुई थी लेकिन यह खुशी खूनी विभाजन की Click to Read More

GUJARAT TO HAVE TALLEST STATUE IN THE WORLD

Sunday, October 31st, 2010 9

Today is Sardar Patel Jayanti. It has really been a Divine Blessing for our country that we had with us at the time of independence both as leader and as part of our government a super human being like Vallabhbhai Patel.

 

August 1947 was a challenging month. While it heralded the liberation of Mother India after centuries of thralldom, the joy of freedom was eclipsed by the trauma of a bloody partition, and the uprooting of millions from their hearths and homes.

 

Sardar Patel assumed office in Pandit Nehru’s cabinet as Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister in August 1947. But his stewardship was available to the country for less than three and a half years. He passed away in December, 1950. And yet the amount of work he was able to Click to Read More

सदमें में गुजरात कांग्रेस

मुझे स्मरण नहीं आता कि किसी राज्य के स्थानीय निकायों के नतीजे इतनी राजनीतिक हलचल मचा देंगे जितनी कि पिछले सप्ताह गुजरात में देखने को मिली।

 

नगर निगमों और पंचायत चुनावों के नतीजों ने राज्य में कांग्रेस पार्टी को सकते में ला दिया है।

GUJARAT CONGRESS IN A STATE OF SHOCK

I do not recall the election result of civic bodies in any state causing such a political upheaval as has occurred in Gujarat last week.

 

The Congress party in the state has been shocked by the results of the Municipal and Panchayat elections.

 

Gujarat Congress President Siddharth Patel has tendered his resignation owning ‘moral responsibility’ for the defeat. The Leader of the Opposition in the State Assembly and Congress Party Leader, Shaktisinh Gohil has also quit his post.

नवम्बर के पहले सप्ताह में राष्ट्रपति बराक ओबामा भारत यात्रा पर आने वाले हैं। उनके आगमन से कुछ सप्ताह पूर्व, न्यूयार्क के एक मेरे मित्र ने द वाशिंगटन पोस्ट के एसोसिएट सम्पादक बॉब वुडवर्ड द्वारा लिखित पुस्तक ओबामास् वार्स(Obama’s Wars) मुझे भेजी है। मुझे स्मरण आता है कि मैंने उनकी पूर्ववर्ती पुस्तकें आल द प्रेसीडेंट्स मैन Click to Read More

THE 11/26 ATTACK ON MUMBAI (through Washington’s eyes)

Sunday, October 24th, 2010 2

In the first week of November, President Barack Obama is to visit India. A few weeks before his arrival, a friend in New York has sent me a book titled Obama’s Wars, written by Bob Woodward, Associate Editor at The Washington Post. I recall reading his earlier books, All the President’s Men and The Final Days about the Watergate episode, and Bush at War about the 9/11 terrorist attack on the U.S. It was Woodward’s reporting on Watergate and 9/11 terrorism that earned him the Pulitzer Prize twice.

एक अक्षम्य भारी भूल

जम्मू एवं कश्मीर के मुख्यमंत्री उमर अब्दुल्ला ने वाकई इतिहास रच डाला है। जम्मू एवं कश्मीर के किसी अन्य मुख्यमंत्री ने कभी इसका प्रतिवाद नहीं किया कि जम्मू एवं कश्मीर राज्य भारत का अभिन्न अंग है। ऐसा करके उमर ने न केवल भाजपा को चिढ़ाया है अपितु आगे बढ़कर जो कहा है उससे राज्य में अलगाववादी और पाकिस्तान का मीडिया हर्षोन्माद में है।

AN UNPARDONABLE GAFFE

Omar Abdullah, Chief Minister of J&K State has indeed made history. No other Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir has ever taken exception to anyone saying that J&K State is an integral part of India. Omar has not only chided the BJP for doing so but has gone further to make an assertion over which both the separatists in the State as well as the Pakistani media have gone into raptures. 

 

In a recent statement in the State Assembly, Omar has said: Jammu and Kashmir State has acceded to India; it has not merged with India.

 

Fact is that all the over 500 princely states, including Hyderabad and Junagarh which Omar specifically mentioned as being Click to Read More

दुनिया के ऐसे बहुत कम संविधान होंगे जिन्होंने अपने सर्वोच्च न्यायिक प्राधिकरण को इस तरह की परामर्श दात्री भूमिका प्रदान की होगी जैसेकि भारतीय संविधान के अनुच्छेद 143 ने भारत के सर्वोच्च न्यायालय को प्रदान की हुई है।

CRUCIAL ASPECT OF AYODHYA MATTER

Not many constitutions of the world have invested their highest judicial authority with the kind of advisory role that Art. 143 of the Indian Constitution has entrusted to the Supreme Court of India.

 

Art. 143 (1) reads as follows :

 

If at any time it appears to the President that a question of law or fact has arisen, or is likely to arise, which is of such a nature and of such public importance that it is expedient to obtain the opinion of the Supreme Court upon it, he may refer the question to that Court for consideration and the Court may, after such hearing as it thinks fit, report to the President its opinion thereon.
