Rowdiness robs religious festivals of sobriety but politicians are indifferent, writes Chandan Mitra

Indians are overly exhibitionist in matters of faith. Many of us appear to believe that unless our respective religions and rituals associated with them are volubly demonstrated in public, we have somehow failed in performing our religious duty. Even festivals, which have no religious ceremony associated, such as Holi and Diwali are observed boisterously through the splashing of colours and bursting crackers at a deafening volume. Similarly Shia Muslims observe Muharram through self-flagellating processions and carrying Tazias down the street. But since loud music is not an integral part of these observances the public disturbance is limited.

But in the last few decades, kanwars have broken all traditions converting their yatras to and from Haridwar or Garh Ganga (Braj Ghat) into raucous events, travelling in trucks blaring loud music through massive loudspeakers, mainly Hindi film songs of dubious quality. Their behaviour on the roads is anything but devotional. They carry hockey sticks and baseball bats to intimidate and seriously injure other road users, state governments, not necessarily of BJP persuasion, make concerted efforts to facilitate their journey, even closing down the main highways on their route or erecting scaffolding barriers to protect the rowdy pilgrims who are known to turn violent if faced with any obstacle. The month of Shravan (July-August) is viewed with trepidation by most other travellers on north India’s roads. Cities like Delhi and Gurugram too are significantly affected.

Should observance of religiosity be such a demonstrative public affair, especially if it inconveniences others? Most religious teachers tell us that religion is a private affair and should definitely not impinge on others’ beliefs. But the kanwar revellers have no patience for such pious thoughts. Incidentally, even Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath, a man deeply seeped in religion, had warned kanwars this year not to be unruly or play film songs which border on the vulgar. But the fear of violence seems to petrify the police who continue to treat these self-styled devotees with kid gloves.

- पार्लियामेंट्री अफेयर्स मिनिस्टर अनंत कुमार ने कहा था, "ये एक काला दिन है।"
बीजेपी MLAs ने मुझपर निराधार आरोप लगाए- सिंधिया
- कांग्रेस लीडर ज्योतिरादित्य सिंधिया ने मंगलवार को सुमित्रा महाजन से कहा, "बीजेपी सांसद वीरेंद्र कुमार, मनोहर अटवाल और नंद कुमार चौहान पिछले कई दिनों से मुझपर निराधार आरोप लगा रहे हैं, जिससे मेरी इमेज खराब हो रही है। मैं आपसे प्रोटेक्शन चाहता हूं। अगर उनके आरोप सही पाए जाते हैं तो मैं लोकसभा से इस्तीफा दे दूंगा और अगर उनके आरोप सही नहीं है, तो बीजेपी सांसदों को पार्लियामेंेट की मेंबरशिप से इस्तीफा दें और जनता के बीच में जाकर माफी मांगें।"

NASA's Cassini spacecraft reveals Saturn's magnetic field has no tilt and many more

New Delhi: NASA's Cassini mission has unraveled some stunning facts about Saturn and its famous rings during its journey to the ringed planet.

The space probe, currently undergoing the final phase of its mission, known as the Grand Finale, has made some startling observations of the planet as it makes its unprecedented series of weekly dives between Saturn and its rings.

They say this observation is at odds with scientists' theoretical understanding of how magnetic fields are generated.

The magnetometer data will also be evaluated in concert with Cassini's measurements of Saturn's gravity field collected during the Grand Finale.

Other recent science highlights include promising hints about the structure and composition of the icy rings, along with high-resolution images of the rings and Saturn's atmosphere.

The sophisticated robotic spacecraft is now in the 15th of 22 weekly orbits that pass through the narrow gap between Saturn and its rings.

Cassini, which began its finale on April 26, will continue its dives until September 15, 2017, when it will make a fateful plunge into Saturn's atmosphere, ending its long of unprecedented scientific discoveries.

भारत में तीन साल में उजागर हुई इतनी काली कमाई, जानकर हैरान रह जाएंगे

नई दिल्ली, एजेंसी। केंद्र सरकार ने सुप्रीम कोर्ट को बताया है कि आयकर विभाग ने पिछले तीन सालों में बड़े पैमाने पर जांच, छापे व जब्ती की कार्रवाई कर 71 हजार 941 करोड़ रुपए की काली कमाई पकड़ी है। नोटबंदी के दौरान ही 5400 करोड़ रुपए नकद व 303 किलो सोने की अघोषित आय उजागर हुई है।
वित्त मंत्रालय ने इस बारे में सुप्रीम कोर्ट में विस्तृत हलफनामा दायर किया है। इसमें कहा गया है कि नोटबंदी के दौरान उजागर अघोषित आय व सोना पिछले साल 9 नवंबर से इस साल 10 जनवरी के बीच की अवधि में की गई कार्रवाई का है। तीन सालों में उजागर 71 हजार करोड़ से ज्यादा की काली कमाई 1 अप्रैल 2014 से फरवरी 2017 के बीच की है।

नोट बदलवाने में बड़े पैमाने पर धांधली
हाल ही में सुप्रीम कोर्ट में सुनवाई के दौरान 500 व 1 हजार के पुराने नोट बदलवाने का एक और मौका देने से साफ इनकार कर चुकी है। हलफनामे में सरकार ने यह भी कहा कि गृह मंत्रालय के 11 जुलाई के पत्र के अनुसार नोट बदलवाने की व्यवस्था का बड़े पैमाने पर दुरुपयोग हुआ। खुफिया एजेंसियों की रिपोर्ट के आधार पर यह दावा किया गया है। बेहिसाबी नकद नोटों का एक्सचेंज कराने में धांधली से संबंधित 400 से ज्यादा मामले सीबीआई व प्रवर्तन निदेशालय को सौंपे गए हैं।
