Since independence, we the Bhartiya are living in an imaginary world. We consider everyone as we are and that is the cause of various problems we are facing today. We are cutting the harvest of seeds sown before independence by certain selfish politicians in connivance with religious leaders. When Britishers came, Mughals were having control over a small territory of country and at the time of independence they asked the Britishers to hand over the reins to them as they were ruling Delhi at the time of their entry in Bharat. Even some selfish, shrewd and cunning Muslim leaders clearly told Mahatma Gandhi that they would not participate in freedom struggle unless Congress support them in Khilafat movement (A movement started by Mohammadens to support the Khalifa regime in Ottoman Umpire of Turkey) initiated under the “UMMA” concept which says that a follower of Islam must support another supporter of Islam in preference to everything and everyone.

For better understanding about the reality, you can read the book “Pakistan or Partition of India by Dr. B. R. Ambedkar”. One must read this book to have an insight about the truth of Independence movement and role of various parties. You will realize the factual position of so-called Ganga Jamuni tehjib and any other things which have been faked by the communist writers’ just to create narratives suitable to their ideology. These writers are responsible for omitting the stories of great freedom fighters of Bharat and creating fake Islamist heroes and to prove the dominance of a particular family in freedom struggle. We have been told that real heroes of freedom struggle included few persons who were never thrashed by British police or went to jail but still their role in struggle was shown to be maximum and at the same time the freedom fighters who had actually sacrificed their life and resources for the struggle were thrown to corner. Such real heroes include Subhash Chandra Bose, Chandra Shekhar Azad, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, Rajguru, Veer Savarkar and many others. If you read the school text books you may find small stories about these people whereas long stories about Gandhi and Nehru. After reading these books, one can conclude that Bharat got freedom only due to Gandhi and Nehru whereas the real truth revealed in the British Parliament says that Britishers left Bharat due to fear of freedom fighters who took up armed war against them. So, in my opinion we are living in a fantasy world as far as our past related to freedom is concerned.

We have been living in a world of fantasies where we were told that we got independence only due to Gandhi and Nehru. This illusion was so that we designated Gandhi as “Bapu” and Nehru as “Chacha”. This narrative received more strength because the so-called writers belonging to communist lobby or following Islam were at the helm of the affairs.

We, the followers of Sanatan were be fooled again and remained patient over all such things. The reasons of our silence were illiteracy and good faith which we had on our leaders. These leaders not only betrayed us but also other freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives. Some of the truthful leaders who tried to speak out were side lined by the persons holding powerful positions in the establishment. Lack of means of communication also played pivotal role in all this because the nationalist leaders and persons having correct information about the events or things were scattered and residing at far away places from power corridors. They had no information about the ill-intentions and objectives of those at center. They could not have imagined that such a betrayal could take place and its impact on the country.

Due to lack of resources many stories remained unpublished since they were never recorded in formal ways. Daring stories of many freedom fighters who played dominant roles at respective villages, cities went unrecorded as nobody bothered to collect or record them in our history books. Even the history books were re-written wherein the real and actual freedom fighters were either removed or reduced to a marginal one and on the other hand betrayers and Britisher’s agent were recorded as freedom fighters. Wrong history is taught to us. The example of such mischief is visible when we read about Veer Savarkar, Ram Prasad Bismil, Batukeshwar Dutt, Khudiram Bose so on and so forth. You can read about some of such freedom fighters in Licy Bharucha’s book, Oral History of the Indian Freedom Movement.

This mischief has made the coming generations believe that only Gandhi and Nehru were the only freedom fighters.

Have you ever heard or remembered Birth or Death Anniversaries of other freedom fighters?

Have your parents or you, seen the Government remembering any other freedom fighters or naming any street or scheme in their name?

How much respect is being paid to Bose, Azad, Bhagat, Sukhdev, Rajguru etc. etc. by naming any scheme or road or memorial in their name?

We will remain indebted to all such freedom fighters who lost their lives so that we can live freely. The least we can do is not to forget them and also ensure that our coming generations do remember them so that they know the worth of independence and the cost our country paid for it.

Since independence the largest party of country has been controlled by a single family. They have ruled the country for more than 50 years and their supporters claim that they have done a lot for country but if you compare other countries which got independence after us, they are far more advanced than us. They fail to acknowledge the level of corruption, its consequences and sufferings. They never accept that how the so-called leaders of this party, who were no more than a beggar, became billionaires and that too without any business or profession being carried out by them, on record. Although in papers they might have shown the business income in crores but the reality is known to everyone. These people prefer to remain silent as they themselves have committed such fraud or have not paid the correct taxes to the Government. They have taken full advantage of corrupt system by evading taxes and then settling the cases by paying bribes.

How the people who are habitual of doing business in black can tolerate to show everything in black and white. Our Government was also aware about it and keeping in view the circumstances, it provided opportunity to all the businessmen to declare true income and pay taxes under the scheme offered by it but these habitual offenders took the Government lightly under the impression that this Government will not last long and their mischievous activities will continue after change of regime. The Government had initiated the process of cleaning the economy and country to eradicate corruption. It brought Demonetization and Income Disclosure Scheme simultaneously to clean up the black money and fake currency. Later on, the Government introduced Goods and Services Tax subsuming 17 various taxes and cesses. After that the Government struck off more than 2 Lakh shell companies used to hide black money. Government reduced tax slabs and brought schemes like Start up India.

Actually, people have become habitual of corrupt bureaucratic system and are finding it difficult to adjust with the new honest system because the old bureaucrats are not allowing the new honest system to function properly with transparency. Such officers are still trying to create hurdles and problems in implementing the changes which reduces corruption. Many supporters and leaders of opposition parties keep asking “What the Government has done for public?”. Although the Government has done so many things for the benefit of public still the opposition parties try to propagate that the Government has not anything for poor and it is working for the benefit of two bizmen. To tarnish the image of Government these parties are creating fake narratives which fall flat on ground as the public is deriving benefit of various Government schemes.

The most important decision of Government to provide internet services at lowest cost in the world changed the whole scenario of country. The power of social media proved to be boon for many. Many youngsters are earning their livelihood through social media by uploading their videos on various topics/ subjects. It is also beneficial for public as they get information about any subject while sitting at their home. This social media also helped the public in creating awareness about the fake and false information provided by the communist writers and erstwhile leaders. This source of information busted the wrong perception about the so-called leaders, politicians, who were presented as most regarded and respectable persons. It also brought into light the scams and ill acts of such so-called legends.

The Governments bold steps of doing Surgical and Air Strike on Pakistan, making triple talaq punishable, removing the wrongly imposed Article 370 and 35A of Constitution, obtaining judgement on Ram Temple from Supreme Court, bringing the Citizenship amendment Act to provide citizenship to religiously persecuted persons, who came from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan and the most recently introduced farms Act had forced the opposition to do something big because otherwise such actions of Government coupled with pro-poor schemes, will keep them away from power corridors for decades to come.

Since the old politicians are feeling that they will never come to power again if pro-poor policies coupled with some bold decisions of Government continues, they provoked one religious community to protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act. The protests were so violent that they culminated in riots at Delhi in which about 58 persons died. The break out of Corona forced the CAA protestors to stop their agitation. When the Government brought new Farms law, the opposition found another opportunity to provoke the farmers by spreading misinformation to agitate against the Government. This time the same history was repeated and wholesome violence took place on the Republic Day and the national flag was insulted in full public view. All this is being done in the name of farmers, a community which never acted against the country.

The major issue which we are facing today is of fake narratives, created by a strong ecosystem consisting of few powerful people who are unable to digest the truthful pro-poor policies of Government and hence fake narratives such as intolerance, radicalization, fascism, blaming Government as dictatorship, anti-poor and pro-bizmen etc. are being successfully created with the support of liberals, self-proclaimed seculars, journalists, media houses, student and union leaders, writers, retired officers, actors, foreign nationals etc.

In the next article we will elaborate how these narratives are created and how this ecosystem works to the disadvantage of whole country and society at large.

Secrets of Shiva and Jyotirlingas


If we see the radioactive map of India, radiations are found at all the 12 JyotirLingas. ShivLingas are nothing but nuclear reactors. We all know about Nuclear Reactor but may be we don’t know about the oldest Nuclear Reactors in India.


The Hindu (English News Paper) published a news that Uranium is available in Kashi (Varanasi) Ground Water. This was Published on 14 July 2008. At that time Scientists used samples of 11 different TubeWell/ Driven Well and found that there is 2 to 11 P.P.B (Particle Per Billion) Uranium in Water. So that there is probability that there was a big Nuclear Reactor at this Holy Palace.

Famous Historian Late P.N. Oak described 12 Molecular Enerfy Centre of Ancient India in Chapter 21 of First Block in his famous book “Vaidik Vishwa: Rasthra Ka Itihaas”. According to OAK that in India there are 12 “Jyotirlinga”. All these reactor were located at these 12 Jyotirlinga.

They are as follows:

1. Somnath (Gujarat)

2. Malikaarjun (Andhra Pradesh)

3. Mahakal (Ujjain)

4. Onkareshwar (M.P)

5. KedarNath (Uttarakhand)

6. BhimShankar (Near Guwahati)

7. Kashi Vishvanath (Kashi)

8. Shrambhkeswar (Nasik)

9. Baidnath (Bihar)

10. Nageshwar (Gujarat)

11. Rameshwar (TamilNadu)

12. Ghaneswar (Aurangabad)


Consider the shape. The shape of a Shivalinga is identical to modern atomic reactors.


A Shivling is traditionally rooted in standing water below the ground level. Over the emblem also hangs a pitcher which constantly drips water over the Shivling. The holy Ganga is also depicted as flowing over the head of Lord Shiva. All these indicate condensation devices (including a crescent moon on the forehead). Why are so many condensation devices associated with Shivling (and Shiva), if it does not symbolizes an energy producing facility?

Devotees of Shiva complete only 3/4th round of the Shivling. They must turn back from the water outlet. They are not supposed to cross that waste water channel. When I asked a priest about it, he said “the water coming out of Shivling is “impure” and that one must not touch it at any cost’. Hence the waste water emerging form the Shivling depicted radioactive waste and hence traditionally should not be crossed.


A scientific neutraliser also used to be provided. Namely when Gharund is placed at the water outlet and the waste water channelled through it, devotees may freely cross the waste water channel to complete the round.

This clearly points to the fact that ancient Hindus had devised a scientific gadget by which they could neutralize the atomic waste.


On a closer analysis of the term Jyotirling, we find that the Sanskrit term ‘Jyoti’ means light and ‘ling’ means symbol. Therefore the term Jyotirling can also be translated as ‘Symbol of light’.


Each of the twelve Jyotirling is situated near a water body. Water is poured at the shivlinga. Things like Bilv-Patra, aak, aakmad, dhatura, gudhal etc are said to be the favourite things of Shiva. All these are very good absorbers of energy. It again symbolizes condensation process.


The Waves of the rock where the Shivaling is based are like the path of electrons around the center. Same as Lord Shiva Nuclear Energy is Welfare and Disastrous. Lord Shiv is Naive and Boon to Ineligible peoples and they becomes enemy of humanity. Same like it When Nuclear Power is in wrong hands the same thing happens.


Therefore there is no shock waves that creation of Lord Shiva Is done by our Scientists. When the Third Eye of Lord Shiva unstuck everything will be destroyed shows the destroying ability of Nuclear Weapon.


Therefore, Where there are Jyotirlinga’s, Definitely Nuclear Power Center were available at those places. Due to these places definetly Radiation of that Places and quantity of Uranium is also increased in nearby places. The best example of the fact is Availability of Uranium in water of Kashi.S


Some years ago, Radiation test were also compiled in Kurukshetra, and found that 3% more radiation is there in comparison of normal places. May be this is because In the War of Mahabharata, Nuclear Weapons were used. According to Historian P.N. Oak at the period of Mahabharata these 12 Nuclear Reactors Produce energy.


Chanting “Om Namah Shivaya” produces amazing energy and effects.


Do you still want to waste your money and time to read GREEN GARBAGE?

The major issue which we are facing today is of fake narratives created by strong ecosystem consisting of few powerful people who are unable to digest the truthful pro-poor policies of Government and hence fake narratives such as intolerance, radicalization, fascism, blaming Government as dictatorship, anti-poor and pro-bizmen etc. are being successfully created with the support of people who want corruption to continue.


The present government has initiated many schemes for the benefit of poor and have tried to help them in every manner. As we all know that food, home and cloth are basic necessities of everyone. The following schemes of the Central Government have been initiated for the benefit of the poor, not to cover only the basic necessities but also to provide health and social security:


  • Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna to provide free home to homeless. Under this scheme the Government is planning to deliver 2 crore homes to homeless which is the basic need.
  • Subsidized Foodgrains: The government is already providing subsidized food grains to poor through ration card.
  • Aayushman Bharat- free medical treatment up to Rs. 5 Lakhs. Poor people suffer a lot whenever any member fall ill because the medical treatment is very costly. So, the government has started world’s largest scheme to cover about 50 crore people under Aayushman Bharat scheme. It is helping poor people since they can get treatment of up to Rs. 5 Lakhs free of cost.
  • Free Electricity connection: Free electricity connection to poor has helped in lighting their houses.
  • Free Gas connection: Free gas connection has helped women of poor families a lot. They are saved from many illnesses suffered due to inhaling smoke while cooking food.
  • Jan Dhan Yojna: provides for opening of zero balance bank account for poor people and consequently it helped the government in transferring the subsidy under various schemes directly to the beneficiary and eradicating large scale corruption of intermediaries.
  • Accidental Insurance of Two Lakhs at a meagre premium of Rs.12/- p.a. Under this scheme every poor can get himself insured for Rs. 2 lakhs by paying a meagre premium of Rs.12/- p.a. Previously there was no such scheme and the family of victim used to suffer a lot in case of accidental death of earning member of family.
  • Life Insurance policy for 2 Lakh at a meagre premium of Rs.365/- p.a. Under this scheme every poor can get himself insured for Rs. 2 lakhs by paying a meagre premium of Rs.365/- p.a. Previously there was no such scheme and the family of victim used to suffer a lot in case of natural death of earning member of family.
  • Atal Pension Yojna Rs.5000/- p.m. at a meagre premium of Rs.210/- p.m. (A person who start investing at the age of 18 years). Besides various schemes mentioned above, the government has also started a scheme to provide pension to poor people at a meagre investment of Rs.210/- p.m.
  • Pradhan Mantri Sharm Yogi Mandhan- to provide pension of Rs.3000/- p.m. to unorganized sector earning less than Rs.15000/- p.m.
  • Pradhan Mantri Vaya Vandana Yojana- assured interest income for Senior Citizens. Senior Citizens were facing a lot of problem due to falling interest rates. Although falling interest rates are beneficial for businessmen as it helps them in obtaining finance at a low cost and thereby reducing their cost of production but at the same time it is not good for those who are relying on interest income after retirement. So, this scheme is very beneficial for Senior Citizens.
  • Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojna: This scheme has been initiated to help the poor in starting their own business. Many poor people who could not start their own small businesses due to financial constraints got an opportunity under this scheme to obtain finance without any security. Although it has been noticed that some bankers are not advancing these loans and the government must look into it.
  • Startup India: This scheme has been initiated to promote youngsters to start their own innovative ventures. Till now many youngsters with innovative ideas could not start their venture due to financial constraints but now this scheme is helping many youngsters in achieving their dreams.


Even after launching so many schemes for the benefit of people from every walk of life, the government is criticized regularly by the left wingers who have no other work to do. Many educated people behave like illiterate and instead of helping the country in achieving various mile stones, they just concentrate on criticizing every decision of government. Such people find ways to criticize the government even during the time of pandemic. When the whole world is praising our government for tackling the pandemic in the best possible manner, these people are busy in finding faults instead of helping public.


Many leaders and workers belonging to political parties have been arrested for black marketing the essential medical goods, medicines, oxygen cylinders etc. Some state governments have found some hospitals indulging in wrong practices by showing their hospitals as full by booking beds either in fake names or in the name of patients not requiring admission in hospital.


Recently we have seen conflict amongst Israel and Palestine. The battle lasted 11 days wherein the Israel army took stern action against the terrorist outfit named Hamas. When this battle was going on the leader of opposition in Israel had openly supported the present PM without thinking about grabbing power. Whereas if you recall the Pulwama incident our opposition parties not only criticized the government for its failure to stop that attack rather raised questions on the surgical/ air strike done by our Army/ Air Force. Some so-called politicians even went to the extent of asking for proof of that strike. Many politicians were speaking the language of our neighboring country which facilitated that coward attack.


Many persons in India are supporting Hamas and opposing Israel for the reasons best known to them. These hypocrites shamelessly support terrorists and get annoyed when called anti nationals. These are the same people who on the one hand call the present government as fascist and on the other hand support terrorists. These people after abusing the Prime Minister with all demeaned words and openly supporting the terrorists and anti-nationals, say there is no freedom of speech in country.


These people are so shameless that they never think about the country’s image rather about their political benefit. What you can expect from such political parties and their leaders? These parties which ruled the country for about 60 years are asking the government about deficiency of medical infrastructure during the pandemic. Can medical infrastructure be built in such a short span? The present government has planned and started work on building 13 AIIMS/ world class Hospitals besides medical colleges. Now the point is whether the country was facing shortage of hospitals only and nothing else was required to be done after 2014? When the medical infrastructure of developed countries fallen short during this pandemic, how much infrastructure we needed for 135 crore population to deal with this pandemic?


The present government has done so much efforts to make the country self-reliant that the whole world is praising it. The glaring example of this is the country was not having a single unit manufacturing PPE kits and now the country is self-reliant in manufacturing PPE kits, masks, medicines required to fight with Covid 19 etc.


People say how long will you keep blaming Gandhi Family rule for deficient infrastructure etc. The reply to this query lies in analyzing the whole facts. Our country has a population of 135 crore approximately and building resources for such a huge population needs lot of efforts, huge investment and above all time. You cannot make good the losses of 60 years in a period of 7 years more so when you have opposition which keep creating troubles like shaheen bagh, farmers agitation etc., filing PIL to disrupt the vaccine drive so on and so forth.


The recent tool kits circulating in social media are enough to prove that how much positive contribution opposition is doing in the growth of country.  The most important fact and point which everyone must know is that during 2004-2014 the government policies were such which forced the Indian industry to stop manufacturing and start importing all the goods from China. During this tenure the government reduced the customs duty in such a manner that the manufacturing of local goods was costly as compared to imports. This act of government ruined the industry and converted all the manufacturing companies into importers. Creating manufacturing infrastructure is not an easy task. It needs time and investment but to ruin it, it takes just a policy decision.


More astonishing is the fact that the Prime Minister at that time was world renowned economist who miserably failed to see the future needs. It is really amazing to note that when the whole world is looking at our country as the largest consumer market, how could we allow them to rule us by stopping manufacturing of various goods and articles which were forced to import from other countries.


It is quite easy to construct a building on barren land but it is very difficult to construct building at a pit full of filth more particularly when the opponents keep on digging that pit and filling it with filth side by side. If you take some action against them, they will call it politically motivated and if you don’t take any action, they will keep on digging the pit and filling it with filth so as to blame you for delay in constructing building. Same is the case with our opposition political parties which raised hue and cry when the corona was spreading but at the same time keep supporting the Shaheen Bagh and Farmers agitation in the name of freedom of speech. When our scientists announced corona vaccine, they not only raised doubts about the efficacy, rather created suspicion in the mind of public through social media platforms. Some so called foreign returned educated politicians called it vaccine of ruling party and openly announced not to get vaccinated and told his supporters to follow him. These people created fear in the mind of public in the name shortage of oxygen and medicines. In such a panic situation public started storing oxygen and medicines besides black marketeers, due to which some shortage occurred at some places. During this period many persons were arrested for black marketing oxygen, medicines, vaccines. Even some hospitals were found showing non-availability of beds by admitting fake patients. Seeing at all such incidents it seems to be full-fledged conspiracy to create panic amongst the public in such hard times.


If you are still not satisfied with the facts just check in the efforts, put in by Government to develop most of the advanced defense systems in the country and the credit for this goes to our Scientists, DRDO and to Government for providing every support and funding. It is for the first time since independence that the proposals sent by defense officers are getting approval and funding without wastage of time. What you think about China and Pakistan? They tried to threaten India many times but could not dare to go further it is only because they are well aware about the preparation of our Army and the arms, ammunition, defense equipment, gadgets, fighter planes, tanks, missiles developed by us. In the coming 5/10 years you will our country as a super power exporting defense systems to other countries.


The opposition tries to create issues and problems so that the public remain busy in petty issues and keep criticizing the Government. Just imagine that if during Corona Pandemic we are facing financial problems in managing our families’ of 5/6 members, how the Government is managing all the things when the revenue receipts fallen. The Government was required to spend a huge amount in managing this pandemic on the one hand and the revenue receipts were falling on the other hand. The Government announced various packages to revive various sectors even during this financial crisis. I agree that the petrol/ diesel prices are high but we need to understand the position of Government also which is forced to spent a huge amount on defense due to Chinese threat. All these things are going on side by side because of our sacrifice and contribution.


You may criticize the Government on one or all the issues but the world is praising the Government because they comment after analyzing all pros and cons. We comment just on the basis of whatever little knowledge we have. If you consider all the factors carefully you may find some mistakes but not blunders. Here you must see the example of the State Government which tried to malign the image of Central Government and got trapped in its own web when the Supreme Court enquired the whole issue. Such third-class politicians are a blot on democracy and are more harmful and dangerous for the public. These selfish people can go to any extent to gain publicity and it was proved when this government spent Rs.125 crores on TV advertisements during January to march quarter but had expressed inability in paying the rent of Oxygen tankers. More painful is the fact that the public of state died just due to mismanagement, as it was proved in enquiry that the state was getting more than required oxygen. Now this party is trying to grab power in other states by offering free bees as it did in their state. If the public got trapped in this free bees’ trap, it may suffer huge loss.


If you Analise the facts since 2014 you will find that certain people are acting on behalf of or in collusion with some foreign countries to dislodge the present government. This is supported by the fact that such people are giving statements which are in line with the statements issued by our enemy countries. While speaking they never bother if their statement is demoralizing the army, scientists, doctors or any other community because they are simply concerned with their political career. So, the public must remain diligent otherwise they may repent for their actions as it happened in 2004, when the Atal Bihari Bajpai’s government was dislodged just because prices of some vegetables increased disproportionately.


The Prime Minister of our country Mr. Narendra Modi is a distinguished person having extraordinary energy to work for the nation. He has served the state of Gujarat for 12 years approximately before becoming Prime Minister of India.

A particular class does not like people like Mr. Modi for reasons which are not publicly known. Generally, the people of India love him and that is the reason that he has been re-elected with thumping majority.

Actually, since Independence India has seen the rule of Congress party for approximately 54 years. When India got Independence the first prime minister of India Mr. Nehru, was fond of English lifestyle because he studied in U.K. and belonged to a rich family. He was not well aware of mentality of communists and other people. That was the reason that he handed over the work of history writing to people who did their best to put all the real heroes of India out of the history and include the invaders. They praised the invaders to such extent that they became heroes for coming generations.

The main principle of communist mentality is to always oppose the establishment. They always work anti-establishment. For full details about this communist philosophy, you may refer a series of articles “वामपंथ: “अ” से लेकर “ज्ञ” तक” published on our website in hindi.

The 54 years rule of Congress has given India an illness called corruption for which no treatment is visibly available. This tendency of corruption is engraved mostly in every person of India. Somehow the villages and villagers are still honest and that is an advantage for our country.

Now, if you see on the one hand are the communists working anti-establishment all the time and on the other hand are those corrupt people who are afraid of losing their corruption money due to various steps being initiated by the Government. The third category opposing the PM is of community whose appeasement has been stopped now.

The Government is working day and night to make India a super power and for that it is necessary to eradicate corruption and malpractices present in our system. For this overhauling of system is required and for that the support of public is a must. If you see this Government’s working, it has changed or brought so many new laws within 6 years, which were not even brought during 60 years since independence. Maximum laws of our country were introduced by Britishers and over the years, the previous governments never bothered to alter them to suit the present situation. Whatever changes were done in law were to appease some particular community or caste. e.g. Shah Bano case, Reservation policy, minority policy etc.

Since independence this is the first Government which is working for every citizen without bothering to appease some particular caste or community. Still there are certain decisions which the Government is reluctant to take because the abovesaid parties are waiting for any such decision so that they can provoke riots and destabilize the Government e.g. CAA and NRC. These opponents don’t mind in taking help of other countries even to destabilize the Government because many decisions have been taken in the interest of the nation but has caused loss to them e.g. Demonetization, GST, FCRA, CAA/ NRC etc.

According to Dr. Subramaniam Swamy, leading Supreme Court Advocate, a consignment of forged currency consisting of thousands of crore rupees was unloaded in Tamilnadu under the patronage of a Union Leader. He has clearly mentioned the name of leader also in his video available on youtube but the strange fact is, that person has never dared to prosecute Dr. Swamy. Besides the above instance there were many other reasons for demonetization. Due to certain corrupt officials / bizmen / professionals this exercise was manipulated but still it has been beneficial for the country.

Previously, the Bizmen had been complaining about double taxation on goods and had been demanding GST but when this Government implemented it, some started opposing it, why? Actually, all honest bizmen are very happy with GST and only the corrupt or tax evaders are opposing it. Although there were teething troubles in implementation but the Government has provided every support. It increased the working of accountants, C.A., Advocates and they started demanding more charges from bizmen. Some bizmen are opposing it just because they are required to maintain proper books or pay more to professionals.

Another great decision which has been taken by this Government is to remove Article 370. Indians have been demanding abolition of this article because 5 lakh Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave their homes, as per various claims. This was biggest genocide in the world but have you ever heard any of these hypocrites talking about it? A single death of Akhlakh matters for them as it suits to their agenda and they started calling the country intolerant but they never talk on brutal killing of Ankit Sharma, Kamlesh Tiwari and many others. They tried their level best to provoke violence but could not succeed.

Fortunately, after a fight of 492 years, Hindus won the war against the ill act of demolishing Ram Temple when the Hon’ble Supreme Court gave its decision in favour of Hindus. Our tolerance is such that even after such a big decision no one celebrated it just because that community may feel hurt, whose followers are found killing innocent people every other day shouting a specific slogan. These opponents are so hypocrite that they act unitedly in tandem and make an innocent person feel like culprit.

Citizenship Amendment Act was the most required thing for our country. India being the only nation for Hindu, Sikh, Jain etc. communities, it provides for grant of citizenship to persons religiously persecuted in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. In reality the population of all these communities, in the said countries, has reduced to such a large extent due to religious persecution. Above all it is applicable to a few thousand people who are already residing in India before December 2014, since long. Since all the mentioned countries are Islamic, Muslims are not included in that. Can anyone believe that a Hindu is religiously persecuted in India? Then how Muslims can be in an Islamic State? But these opponents started opposing this decision too which resulted in riots in Delhi which claimed 53 lives, as per reports.

As the Government was acting so fast and taking decisions one after another, these people started agitation at various places in the name CAA. Actually, it was never about CAA rather it was a cumulative effect of last few decisions taken by the Government. These opponents are so shrewd and cunning that they knowingly spread lies just to create disturbance. Shaheen Bagh protests and then the very well-planned riots prove the case.

The Government has not stopped even after all their efforts and brought in another amendment in law for the benefit of farmers. According to the amendments the farmers will be now free to sell their produce to any person or party, whosoever pays higher price and save the mandi tax and brokerage. They can also enter into an agreement with corporates for contract farming but all safeguards have been provided so that they don’t lose their right on land. Even the present MSP and Mandi system will continue and it will be prerogative of farmer to sell his produce, the way he likes. These opponents have again started spreading lies and provoking the farmers to agitate.

Now, the readers may ask that how a reasonable person can oppose a good act? It is possible only when someone does it with ulterior motives. They took full advantage of illiteracy while misguiding the public and creating false narratives.

There are three categories of people opposing every good action taken by government. First one is the political opponents. This category is supposed to oppose wrong actions of the government but they are opposing every good act instead. They provoke the people by misleading them. They are so desperate to acquire the power that they can go to any extent. They openly appease some communities and while doing so they forget that others are also residing here. We are facing the consequences of decisions taken by such power-hungry class to appease such communities, till date. While pursuing their preset agenda, they even oppose or criticize or raise questions on the integrity of the institutions like Army, ISRO etc.

Second class is that of communist mentality which always work anti-establishment until they themselves are in power. This communist mentality has done much damage to our country as clearly visible from present day poor condition of West Bengal where they were in power for decades. Urban Naxals are also part of this category. Detailed article on this category is also available on our website.

Third one and most dangerous category is opposing the government because they want to establish “Gajwa A Hind”. Many readers may not agree with author’s opinion and in that case, they can search various videos available on various social media platforms to know the level of gravity of situation. Mostly the elite and educated people belonging to this community are vigorously pursuing this objective and they are openly saying this thing in their community gatherings. Readers can see various videos of Jakir Naik and alikes. Maullana Madni has clearly, while commenting on Ram Temple decision, said that they will reclaim and rebuild the Babri Mosque when they came in power, may be after 50 years. One Akbaruddin Owaisi had clearly threatened in one public meeting that if police is removed for 15 minutes they will show their strength. Sharjil Imam, Amantulla Khan, Shehla Rashid etc. raised anti India slogans and as per reports they were also involved in provoking Delhi riots. These people are not afraid of anyone. Even our courts and governments never take stern action against them. The glaring example of this is Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid Delhi against whom numerous criminal cases are going on and he has been never arrested. He is roaming free because the government had told the court that if he is arrested, communal harmony will be disturbed. What the hell is this? I don’t understand that where the constitutional provisions go in such cases and why the so-called saviors of Constitution keep mum. They came out for candle march and agitation when any Akhlakh is killed but never speak when it is other way round, why?

Why and how we have become so coward? It is just because we have been told to be calm and tolerant since childhood but never told not to bear injustice. Why we pray the Krishna with Radha and not the Dwarkadhish who killed all demons and Kans. Had our parents told us to be brave and fight back, this situation would have never arisen. The rule of Mughals and Britishers has made us so coward that we keep on avoiding the visible threats, as we doing now. Some of you might still feel that there is no such threat but remember that 30 years ago Kashmiri Pandits were also thinking in same manner but what happened? They were looted, girls and women raped and were forced to leave their ancestral place, overnight. Dasna, Mewat, Kairana and many places in West Bengal, Kerala, Bihar, U.P. have seen repeat of Kashmir exodus. Even recently the Hindus are selling their houses in Delhi after riots.

We are lucky that the present government is nationalist and progressive. We have seen how this government is tackling the China and Pakistan. In past we were afraid of Pakistan but today it is not so even though China is also trying to threaten us but a befitting reply is being given. Now in my opinion we must support this government whole heartedly if we want a safe and developed country for our children. We all must act unitedly against the anti-nationals. Must do whatever we can. Provide financial support to the organizations working in national interest, speak openly against injustice and wrong acts, support nationalists on social media and oppose anti-nationals, like and share the videos and posts of national interest so as to create awareness and support this movement of saving the only country belonging to you.

We must try and pressurize the government to bring Population Control Act, Common Civil Code and such other laws immediately so as to save this country before it is too late.

If you see all the religions of world, you will find that Sanatan Dharma is the most tolerant and lenient because we follow the principles of “Vasudev Kutambhkam” and that’s why we welcomed everyone. People came to Bharat in the name of doing business and later on betrayed and encroached on our land. They partly succeeded in defeating some of our kings due to many reasons few of which were; weak kings in some states, non-unity amongst rulers of different States, excessive tolerance and avoiding the apparent threats, treating and considering everyone of high moral values and trustworthy etc.

Above all the main reasons were our religious sentiments and cultural values. In Sanatan philosophy we believe in respecting others, specifically we treated “Atithiti Devo Bhav:” and provided status of God to our guest because of which we never doubted the integrity of visitors coming to our country. Seeing our simplicity, hospitality and weaknesses, such visitors dared to think about capturing our country. At that time Bharat was not united and different kings were ruling various states. Transportation facilities were not available and hence friendship amongst kings were restricted up to neighboring States only. The only medium of communication or sending information was through messengers and which used to take a lot of time. So, whenever invaders attacked some state, sending message and seeking help from friendly states could not happen early and hence we lost states one by one. Only capable and brave kings could win and save their states.

It is pertinent to mention here that biggest lie of the world i.e. Mughals ruled Bharat for 800 years was taught to us, which is totally false. Communist writers wrote such false history just to demoralize us. If you search you will find that the Mughals never ruled whole of Bharat at any point of time. Although they ruled Delhi but even at that time there were many kings who were ruling bigger states or areas. Mughals could not win the whole of Bharat and the areas under their rule was scattered and kept changing hands.

This false lie created a fear amongst the mind of people as if Mughals were much powerful whereas the reality was they won maximum battles due to betrayal of our people only. After independence the communist lobby which wrote the history books just praised Mughals and Britishers and down played the role of our brave rulers. When you don’t know the true history of your great warriors/ancestors you cannot fight with liars.

Tolerance is an integral part of our culture and fear does not hold any place. We remained unaware and this tolerance converted into unseen fear with the passage of time. Actually, our upbringing was such that we never fought with any one because we followed varn system in which only kshatriya were supposed to be fighters. This mentality resulted into making us fearful and on the other hand the false stories narrating others as heroes had also impacted our mindset.

Though we have taught our children the stories of Dwarkadheesh (Lord Krishna who narrated Gita) and his preaching’s about non-tolerance of excesses of any sort but what our ancestors did? They taught us stories of Kanhaiya playing flute and dancing with Gopis. A person’s personality reflects his upbringing and whatever he sees during his childhood becomes part of his personality. The fighting spirit of our great warriors could not be inculcated into coming generations due to wrong interpretations of our sculptures.

The flaw in personality showed it’s impact at the time of independence when great visionary like Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar asked for whole transfer of population and another greedy leader preferred to just grab the power chair instead of listening him. One wrong decision can make the life hell is apparent today as we see the dominance and aggression of a particular community which instead of being thankful, is preparing to divide the country again.

They are behaving like a naughty child who is pampered by parents for every wrong act. Now to control that child you need to shed your fear and tolerance and show your bravery without which nothing will happen. Every one respect only a powerful person. You will rarely find anyone respecting a weak person.

Unless you show your bravery these illiterate and uneducated people will not refrain from committing sins. Once you show your power/ strength they will sit silently until they acquire majority and once they are in majority there will be no place for you in your own country. They are claiming every right saying they ruled the country for 800 years and we don’t counter them even though our ancestors were here since time immortal.

You have every right to disagree but the truth is that your tolerance is considered as your weakness and fear. Tolerance does have some limits and the day it crossed the limits there will be hue and cry only. So, it is better to control the things before they become worst. If you want to give your children a peaceful place to live you will have to act now.

Another problem with us is we being law abiding citizens expect the same from everyone whereas the other party does not believe in that philosophy, which they are clearly and openly saying again and again and you have closed your eyes.

Are the statements of one leader called Akbarrudin Owaisi from Hyderabad asking for removal of police for 10 minutes to show their strength to Hindus, Maullana Madni openly saying in media briefing that they will demolish the Ram Temple, immediately after Supreme Court judgement and the actions of some leaders during Delhi and Bangalore riots not enough to open your eyes and even after watching exodus of Kashmiri Pandits, condition of Hindus in Mewat, Kairana, Dasna, West Bengal, Kerala etc.?

If you don’t wake up from your deep slumber even now then note it that no one will be there to save you. Don’t expect everything to be done by the Government because it will not be possible to control this unruly mob unless you take the responsibility to save yourself. Even the constitution of India gives you liberty to act in self-defense and save your precious life. I don’t ask for doing anything against anyone. I just want to tell you to ensure safety of your family and to take every necessary step in that direction so that at the time of need you don’t feel helpless as the people of Delhi or Bangalore felt during riots.

The community which have weapons in every home for preparing their daily dishes needs nothing extra to save themselves but what about you? In your house you cannot find a knife to slice apple even what to talk of self-defense. In old times people used to have sticks in their homes to control animals but today you cannot find it in any house.

Most importantly please send your children to self-defense coaching classes so that atleast they are able to save themselves in case of any exigency. My motive is not to provoke anyone or against any particular community but this is just to awaken you to make arrangements so as to save youself and your family, keeping in view the recent incidents.


Among the Hindus, vivaha or marriage is considered a sarira samskara, i.e., sacraments sanctifying the body, which every individual has to go through in life. It is a topic that is controversial and widely debated. When you optically canvass elaborate Indian arranged marriages and analyze the involution and effort involved to make it prosperous, you may wonder how and when this practice commenced. Arranged marriages in India originated during the Vedic period of Indian history. The ceremony and the institution of arranged marriages withal took its shape during this time.


Hindu marriage harmonizes two individuals for ultimate eternity, so that they can pursue dharma (Truth), arth (meaning), and kama (worldly desires). It is a union of two individuals as spouses, and is recognized by livable continuity. In Hinduism, marriage is not followed by traditional rituals for consummation. In fact, marriage is considered complete or valid even without consummation because the marriage is between two souls and it is beyond the body. It also joins two families together. Today the culture of marriage among Hindus is such new concept of Love-Arrange Marriage or Arrange-Love Marriage.


The concept of Hindu Marriage goes much deeper than just a man-woman relationship. It has been called as essential Samskara as it imbibes all the humane ethos of Hindu Culture from the birth of human life, endurance through trials & tribulations of married life and destiny of future generation after the death of marriage partners. Its ideals are the fulfillment of dharma, procreation, and enjoyment of sexual pleasure. It exhibits an integral approach to this social institution.


Marriage is considered to be a sacred institution  in India.  It is a ‘sanskara’ or purificatory ceremony obligatory for every Hindu. Marriages, according to Hindu beliefs are made in heaven, and once you are married, the bond is supposed to last for seven lifetimes. It is considered to be a turning point in an individual’s life as he enters the second important phase or ashram of his life – the ‘Garhasthyaashram’. Hindu religious books have enjoined marriage as a duty because an unmarried man cannot perform some of the most important religious ceremonies.


As the Vedic religion evolved into classical orthodox Hinduism (ca. 500BC), the social ideas advanced by Manu gained prominence, and large sections of Indian society moved towards patriarchy and caste-based rules. Manu and others attacked the Gandharva and other similar systems, decrying them as holdouts “from the time of promiscuity” which, at best, were only suitable for small sections of society. Under the system they advocated (sometimes called Manuvad), women were stripped of their traditional independence and placed permanently in male custodianship: first of their fathers in childhood, then of their husbands through married life, and finally of their sons in old age. Women then began to migrate to their husband’s home after getting married.


The Hindu scriptures admit the following eight forms of marriage:

  • Brahma marriage: In this form of marriage the girl, decorated with clothes and ornaments, is given in marriage to a learned and gentle bridegroom. This is the prevalent form of marriage in Hindu society today.
  • Prajapatya marriage: In this form of marriage the daughter is offered to the bride-groom by blessing them with the enjoyment of marital bliss and the fulfillment of dharma.
  • Aarsh marriage: In this form of marriage a Rishi used to accept a girl in marriage after giving a cow or bull and some clothes to the parents of the girl. These articles were not the price of the bride but indicated the resolve of the Rishi to lead a house-hold life. According to P.K.Acharya, the word Aarsh has been derived from the word Rishi.
  • Daiva Marriage: In this form of marriage the girl, decorated with ornaments and clothes, was offered to the person who conducted the function of a Purohit in the yajna.
  • Asura marriage: In this form of marriage the bride-groom gets the bride in exchange for some money or articles given to the family members of the bride. Such a form of marriage was conducted in the case of marriage of Pandu with Madri.
  • Gandharva marriage: This form is marriage is the result of mutual affection and love of the bride and the bride-groom. An example of this type of marriage is the marriage of the King Dushyanata with Shakuntala. In this form of marriage, the ceremonies can be performed after a sexual relationship between the bride and the bride-groom. In Taittariya Samhita it has been pointed out that this type of marriage has been so named because of its prevalence among the Gandharvas.
  • Rakshas marriage: This type of marriage was prevalent in the age when women were considered to be the prize of the war. In this type of marriage, the bride-groom takes away the bride from her house forcibly after killing and injuring her relatives.
  • Paisach marriage: This type of marriage has been called to be most degenerate. In this type, a man enters into a sexual relationship with a sleeping, drunk or unconscious woman. Such acts were regularised after the performance of a marriage ceremony which took place after the physical relationship between the man and woman.


Historically the Vedic marriage was but one of the few different types of Hindu marriage customs. Love marriage was also seen in historical Hindu literature and has been variously described by many names, such as Gandharva vivaha. In certain poor vaishnav communities there is still a custom called kanthi-badal which is an exchange of bead-garlands as a very simplified form of ritual in solitude in front of an idol of Krishna, considered a form of acceptable love marriage.

Elopement has also been described in old Hindu literature. Lord Krishna himself eloped with Rukmini on a horse chariot. It is written that Rukmini’s father was going to marry her to Shishupal, against her wishes. Rukimini sent a letter to Krishna informing of a place and time to pick her up.


The married Hindu women in different parts of India follow different customs. Mostly sindoor, mangalsutra and bangles are considered as signs of a married woman. In some places, in especially Eastern India, instead of mangalsutra they put only vermilion on the hair parting, wear a pair of conch bangles (shankha), red bangles (pala) and an iron bangle on the left hand (loha) while their husband is alive. In southern India, a married woman may wear a necklace with a distinctive pendant called a thali and silver toe-rings. Both are put on her by the husband during the wedding ceremony.


The Manu Samhita that was written in around 200 BC, is known to have laid down the marital laws, which is followed even today. Manu, one of the most influential interpreters of these scriptures, documented the Manu Samhita. Traditionally accepted as one of the supplementary arms of the Vedas, The Laws of Manu or Manava Dharma Shastra is one of the standard books in the Hindu canon, presenting the norms of domestic, social, and religious life in India.


These texts mention the four main aims of Hindu life: Dharma, Artha, Kama, and Moksha. Dharma represented the harmony between “temporal interests and spiritual freedom”. Artha referred to the “acquisitive instinct, and signified man’s enjoyment of wealth”. Kama represented the instinctive and was connected with satisfying the emotional, sexual, and aesthetic urges of man. Moksha represented the end of life and the realization of an inner spirituality in man.


It further mentions that these four aims of life were to be accomplished by conducting life in four stages which were – “bhramacharya, grihastha, vanaspratha, and samnyasa”.The second stage grihastha dealt with marriage and included the goals of dharma, progeny, and sex. The Vedas and the Smritis thus gave an authentic written foundation to the institution of marriage. As Vedas and the Manu Samhita is the earliest available document it can be ascertained that marriage started with this era.


Hindu marriage ceremony is essentially a Vedic yajna or fire-sacrifice, in which the Aryan deities are invoked in the archaic Indo-Aryan style. The primary witness of a Hindu marriage is the fire-deity or Agni, and by law and tradition, no Hindu marriage is deemed complete unless in the presence of the Sacred Fire, and seven circumambulations have been made around it by the bride and the groom together. The Vedas set out in detail the ritualistic importance of the nuptial ceremony. The seven vows of a Hindu marriage are also mentioned in the Vedic texts.


Due to the influence of Western culture and English education, the Hindu marriage system has undergone considerable changes. Some of the important ones are:

Marriage is not held as compulsory: In the Hindu society formerly marriage was considered to be absolutely compulsory for both males and females. According to Hindu scriptures, a person who does not beget a son through marriage cannot attain heaven. No man could perform ‘yajna’ without a wife. Marriage, therefore, was necessary even for religious purposes. But, due to the influence of Western culture, many males and females do not consider marriage to be necessary these days. Due to economic difficulties also some persons do not enter into matrimony. The modern educated Hindu girl is not ready to accept the slavery of males. The educated men and women do not believe in the ancient religious values and therefore do not consider marriage to be necessary.

Breaking of the taboos of Sagotra and Sapravar marriage: Ancient Hindu tradition forbids the marriage of persons belonging to the same Gotra and Pravar. This very much restricts the field of choice of mate. Therefore, at present, the educated persons are gradually violating the restriction. It has been also rejected by law.

The opposition of Child Marriages: In medieval India, the custom of child marriage was very much in vogue. After the passing of the Sarada Act, child marriages have become illegal. Another factor leading to the restriction of child marriage in Hindu society is a tremendous increase in women’s education. The boys do not marry early because of late settlement in career.

Permission of Inter-caste Marriage: Formerly, inter-caste marriage was considered to be wrong in the Hindu society. It has now been legally permitted. With the increase of co-education, women’s education and the democratic ideal of equality and liberty, inter-caste marriages are now considered to be signs of forwardness.

Permission of Widow Remarriage: due to the untiring efforts of the social reformers and educated person widow remarriage is no more considered to be wrong in Hindu society. Consequently, its incidence is now on the decrease.

Prohibition of Polygamy: Formerly, a man was allowed to marry several women in order to get a son. With the increase of women’s education, the ladies are demanding equal rights in marriage. The Hindu Marriage Act of 1955 has declared polygamy to be illegal. No one can marry a second time, while the former spouse is alive.

Provision for Divorce: The Hindu Marriage Act of 1955 has introduced a significant change in the institution of Hindu marriage by permitting divorce under certain specific circumstances.


Mutually fixed/ consented marriages are basically of three types:

  •  Between same caste– intra-caste & intra-faith marriages
  •  Inter-caste marriages
  • Inter-faith marriages

Love marriage is a misnomer because love in matrimonial context is sexual interplay, which includes dating, courtship, live-in arrangement, infatuation, and even sexual contact/ violence. Any of these may or may not fructify into a solemnized legal marriage. More often than not, this results in a void, voidable or bigamous marriage than a legal marriage. From a legal point of view, these relationships or marriages form a great chunk of matrimonial disputes and matrimonial violence. In love marriages or self-seek matrimonial alliances, sexual relationships or even courtship before marriage are quite common. Both of these aspects have grave legal implications. Therefore, the utmost secrecy by both partners sometimes lands them into the arena of criminal offenses.


More and more couples are going in for live-in relationships, not only celebrities but even middle-class couples are choosing to live together for various personal or social reasons. Some of these reasons are: society and families no longer frown upon ‘live-in relationship’ as much as before and couples who do not wish to make lifelong commitments prefer to live together before getting married. Others say that they need to know each other better before they tie the nuptial knot. Yet others live together due to circumstances such as work requirements or for saving money by keeping one house rather than two. Lastly, young men and women live together because they no longer believe in the traditional sanctity of marriage.


Hindus believe in astrology. The prospective couple’s horoscopes have to be analyzed and “suitably matched” for the marriage to take place. Hindu astrology, a system that originated in ancient India, was documented by sages in the Vedic scriptures. The origin of arranged marriages in India and its dignified past comes from the amazing specificity of Vedic astrology. So, the evolution of arranged marriages has been a gradual process with its roots in the Vedic period. The period prior to it, i.e., the Indus Valley Civilization has no written scriptures or scripts relating to this period. Hence, there is an extensive need for deciphering the script of the Indus civilization to have an idea about the society and marriage customs of this period to open avenues for further research.


Vedic path refers to the three stages of a person:

The initial stage, which is Bhramacharya: the study and learning of Vedas and Gayathri Upasana, and worship of Agni through oblations twice a day.

The next stage is the Grihastashrama (getting into marital life) and offering oblations to Agni by performing Agni Upasana, Yagas, etc. along with the life partner which are meant for the evolution of one’s self in the spiritual realm.

The final stage is offering one’s body after death to the Agni that was worshipped.

It should be understood that vanaspratha is the continuation of grihastha stage after discharging the duties and retiring along with the wife and continuing Agni Upasana, penance, and nitya karmas.

To lead a life as prescribed by the Vedas, here is the system to be followed by one and all:

  1. Initiation into Gayathri Upasana
  2. Study of the Vedas or understanding the messages given in them.
  3. Agni Upasana as part of Gayathri Upasana and Vedic study (BRAHMACHARYA).
  4. Getting into married life and continuing Agni Worship as a couple – Grihastha Dharma.
  5. Offering one’s body in the fire worshipped by the couple (The concept behind the ritual followed for cremation in the present day)


As saying goes:

“Jisne bhi shadi ke laddu khaye vo bhi pachtaye jisne nahin khaye vo bhi pachtaye”.

Marriage besides holy matrimony is an everlasting union between two people (especially those to whom you do not know earlier). Marriage can be blessed or cursed. Marriage and wedding is not the same. Marriage is the uniting of two people to become one both spiritually and physically. It is commitment between two different natured persons for love and honour of each other till death.

Wedding is a day event, it’s the joining of two people to become one, but after that day it is not going to happen again. It is something happened in a life time.

Marriage is to be appreciated and respected. Most people marry by appearance; he must be tall, dark, and handsome, have beards, have pink lipsete, must have good looks, good figure, and nice set of teeth, have sexy voice, earner, family values, education, background etc.

I am not saying you shouldn’t know what you want, appearance matters, but, character matters most. I would say appearance brings a man but character or manners keeps him cause when you have a reason you love someone (cause of her cute eyes) one day you might look and it’s not there and the love decrease. No matter what, good manner matters.

The success of your marriage depends on the choice you have made with regard to your life partner.

Let your partner or spouse be the one you comfortable with, one you can turn to for help or advice. One that stand by you or safe you from danger.

One who is there to help, support, lift or assist you?

One who counsels you, who encourage and care for you

One that covers your nakedness, flaws, shame, who make you and not mar you

One who brings out the best in you no matter what, makes you smile, joyful even in enduring situations


Marriage marks a great beginning

Marriage marks the beginning of the family. It is a life-long commitment that widens your horizons and the purpose of existence on this earth. It gives you an opportunity to be selfless as you will have to now take care of your spouse and children. Marriage is not just a physical union. It is also a spiritual as well as emotional bond. Hence, you will find a kind of fulfillment when you get married.

Promotes oneness

When two people get married, they become one. Marriage is a superior bond than nothing else on the earth. It brings you your life’s partner and a teammate to move together in comradeship facing the challenges, excitements, disappointments, surprises and uncertainties of life. Finally now you have got someone to share your life.

Brings in a higher purpose to your life

Marriage opens up the gates to realizing a higher purpose to your life. You are now enjoined into a life that is tuned to realizing the objectives of each of the family members with you. You work for a larger goal and receive a greater satisfaction. The life seems to be more meaningful after marriage.

The joy of parenting

Parenting is a challenging, exciting and a joyful thing like nothing else. When you produce a child or adopt one, you receive the biggest blessing on the earth you can hope for. Children growing without a father or mother are most likely to be ill-equipped to face the world in the right way. When you have got kids in the family, you have got an opportunity to help a soul understand the world and learn how to live happily and successfully.


Marriage is a powerful creator and sustainer of human and social capital for adults as well as children, about as important as education when it comes to promoting the health, wealth, and well-being of adults and communities. It is not good for man to be alone— or woman.


IT’S SAFER. Marriage lowers the risk that both men and women will become victims of violence, including domestic violence. Two-thirds of acts of violence against women committed by intimate partners were not committed by husbands, but by boyfriends (whether live-in or not) or former husbands or boyfriends.

IT CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE. Married people live longer and healthier lives. The power of marriage is particularly evident in late middle age. Nine out of ten married guys who are alive at 48 will make it to age 65, compared with just six in ten comparable single guys (controlling for race, education, and income). For women, the protective benefits of marriage are also powerful, though not quite as large. Nine out of ten wives alive at age 48 will live to be senior citizens, compared with just eight out of ten divorced and single women.

IT CAN SAVE YOUR KID’S LIFE. Children lead healthier, longer lives, if, parents get and stay married.

YOU WILL EARN MORE MONEY. Men today tend to think of marriage as a consumption item—a financial burden. But a broad and deep body of scientific literature suggests that for men especially, marriage is a productive institution—as important as education in boosting a man’s earnings.

YOU’LL GET MUCH RICHER. Married people not only make more money, they manage money better and build more wealth together than either would alone.

YOU’LL TAME HIS CHEATIN’ HEART (HERS, TOO). Marriage increases sexual fidelity. Cohabiting men are four times more likely to cheat than husbands, and cohabiting women are eight times more likely to cheat than wives. Marriage is also the only realistic promise of permanence in a romantic relationship.

YOU WON’T GO BONKERS. Marriage is good for your mental health. Married men and women are less depressed, less anxious, and less psychologically distressed than single, divorced, or widowed Americans. By contrast, getting divorced lowers men’s and women’s mental health, increasing depression and hostility, and lowering one’s self-esteem and sense of personal mastery and purpose in life.

IT WILL MAKE YOU HAPPY. For most people, the joys of the single life and of divorce are overrated. Overall, 40 percent of married people, compared with about a quarter of singles or cohabiters, say they are “very happy” with life in general. Married people are also only about half as likely as singles or cohabiters to say they are unhappy with their lives.

How happy are the divorced? If people divorce in order to be happy, as we are often told, the majority should demand their money back. Just 18 percent of divorced adults say they are “very happy,” and divorced adults are twice as likely as married folk to say they are “not too happy” with life in general. Only a minority of divorcing adults go on to make marriages that are happier than the one they left. “Divorce or be miserable,” certain cultural voices tell us, but, truth be told, “Divorce and be miserable” is at least as likely an outcome.

YOUR KIDS WILL LOVE YOU MORE. Divorce weakens the bonds between parents and children over the long run. Adult children of divorce describe relationships with both their mother and their father less positively, on average, and they are about 40 percent less likely than adults from intact marriages to say they see either parent at least several times a week.

YOU’LL HAVE BETTER SEX, MORE OFTEN. Despite the lurid Sex in the City marketing that promises singles erotic joys untold, both husbands and wives are more likely to report that they have an extremely satisfying sex life than are singles or cohabiters. (Divorced women were the least likely to have a sex life they found extremely satisfying emotionally.) For one thing, married people are more likely to have a sex life. Single men are 20 times more likely and single women ten times more likely, not to have had sex even once in the past year than the married. (Almost a quarter of single guys and 30 percent of single women lead sexless lives.)


Most people aren’t in a hurry to get married anymore

According to few statistics, back in the early 1980s, the median age for marriage was 25 for men and 22 for women. But in 2011, the median ages for first marriages hit all-time highs of 29 for men and 27 for women. The report credits this change to, among other things, the fact that couples no longer feel the need to be married to become parents and the “competition from other lifestyles,” like living alone or living with partners. So, there’s no need to stress about not getting married — everyone else is staying single too.

Many people feel there aren’t many advantages to being married

In 2010 few survey states that, by and large, single people do not feel married people have many advantages in terms of a “fulfilling sex life, being financially secure, finding happiness and having social status.”

For men, being married could be connected to being overweight

Married men were 25 percent more likely to be overweight than men who were single or in a committed relationship. And according to the study, about 60 percent of married men were overweight compared to about 40 percent of married women.

Marriage can present a slew of financial problems

Laws require those in a marriage to be responsible for their spouse’s debt, and for the elderly, that could mean a variety of expensive medical bills.

Marriage can seem like an outdated institution, and some people just don’t want to fit into that mold

Marriage is a conservative institution that organizes child-rearing and defines commitment, relationship and love.

Getting married can put your friendships at risk

While this probably applies more to folks with mostly single friends, many people sense strains in their friendships after they get married. People tend to lose at least one close friend after getting married, as a husband or wife fills that role. When someone spends every waking hour with their spouse that can lead to neglecting the other people in their life. Which brings us to our next point?

Marriage can lead to the risky habit of relying on one individual for every emotional need

Many married couples make the mistake of turning their spouse into a “Sex and Everything Else Partner.” They look to them for all sources of contentment, like “companionship, intimacy, caring, friendship, advice, the sharing of the tasks and finances of household and family, and just about everything else.” This creates an unrealistic “cultural fantasy” that ultimately results in disappointment and unhappiness.

These days, a happy marriage requires a serious commitment of time and energy that can be hard to maintain

The fact that good marriages require more time and effort than ever is further validated by the differing divorce rates between wealthy couples and their less affluent counterparts. Studies show that lower-income couples get divorced more, and part of the blame lays in those couples’ lack of resources, time and otherwise.

And, as dim as it sounds, plenty of marriages in this country end up in a divorce anyway

Middle-class participants said despite being excited about marriage, they worried about “the social, legal, emotional and economic consequences of divorce.” It seems that the younger you get married, the more likely you are to get a divorce.

It’s called a civil union or a domestic partnership

If you want to form a meaningful (and official) bond with your significant other, but you just don’t like the idea and practice of marriage, you always have the option of entering a civil union or a domestic partnership.


Don’t get married because you are lonely.

Many people find themselves living alone, and eventually get tired of the life of the single person, the bars, the parties, and all the other activities singles indulge in. Living alone is a wonderful time to become a whole person, to get to know yourself and what you like, don’t like, and learn to feel comfortable in your own skin, and satisfied with your own company.

Don’t marry someone to get your friends’ and family’s approval

It is always a nice feeling to make others ecstatic, and we strive to gain the approbation of our friends and family, which isn’t a lamentable thing. Not unless you are with someone you feel no vigorous emotions for, only because your family and friends cerebrate they are such a great guy or gal. You can bask in their approbation only so long, and conclusively, you will require to do Something for yourself, something that makes you blissful inside. Your family And friends should give you their love, support, and approbation because they dote and accept you for who you are, not who you are with.

In the present day society where the people believe in marrying their daughters or even the girls would relish to get married in the society she belongs to but there are many drawbacks, as is most of the cases the compatibility and societal quandaries are there like the case presently in the Bollywood, the people are addicted to falsehood and get into erroneous hands.

Dowry is one of the imprecations of our society and in most of the cases because of authoritative ordinance of dowry, either the girl’s parents or the girl itself trepidations of getting married. There are many other reasons like some people do not believe in getting married. They feel like they do not require the partner’s love or it will not be proved, as thought of and additionally trepidation of being slave in the in-laws house. Though the trust is the main action in marriage, but some people feel that they will not get the trust. Sometimes, the girls do not believe that marriage is an alternative for a good life and dissents with the old cultured society and wants an independent life without any if and buts in their day to day life. Even in some cases, tag of cognomen effect the independence of the girl specially those who want liberation and optate to do whatever they like especially when they are not sure about the person with whom she is going to be wedlock. In marriage, the bride is a centre of attention, which sometimes she does not relish.

As is already been discussed, there are don’ts additionally, which cause lot of stress due to incomplete and incompatibility of each other, consequently, it is one of the other cause not having been married. In some of the cases in their personal or friend circle, they have felt the deplorable feelings for marriage. They are trepidations of having getting the same in her marriage.

It is felt that marriage integrates value to life, but sometimes it is not homogeneous to so. When the girl have optically discerned, their parents or their kenned fighting in or out and one or the other couple not being independent, she is frightened that she do not optate to get married. Few would relish to break the overruled tradition of the man inundating the woman. Since, after marriage the time is devoted towards the other person, who may be boy or girl do not optate to spent or share.

Few people would relish to live a solitary life, so they are trepidations of getting married. Sometimes, due to different maturity levels having different cerebration process, not of compromising nature, not relishing the family or traditions or not believing in desideratum of the other person, people do not get married. In many cases due to job requisites, business or professional exigencies the couples have either to live discretely or does not devote enough time for each other, which ravages the very purport of togetherness, love and affection in marriage and becomes curse for each other.

Despite this, there are reasons for getting married. One of the reasons is that there will be togetherness and there would be a companion with whom one can apportion journey of life. If one feels, marriage is not a compulsion, but a bond for whole life with comity, as a motive and a conscious effort to look into each other’s good or deplorable then it is better to get married.

Another reason for getting married is love and intimacy. Love is the circadian decision to give, accommodate and communicate in the venerable manner and the patience from both the Partners is must, which needs a veracity & independent relationship. The intimacy describes proximity & feeling of warmth. But, if, it is missing then the life becomes hell. Marriage is for one’s support and magnification. Once there is struggle, challenges & differences, the inter personal cognations between the married couple reinforce each other. It is withal one of the biological needs.

The parenthood is additionally one of the reasons for having a marriage. However, the most stable and secure environment is obligatory for magnification of the kids in the mundane family. In Indian society, married men or women get more reverence as well as in their respective families. Despite number of laws having been transmuted, live-in relationship or divorce is still a taboo.

Two adults have the right to live together even if they have not procured marriageable age, the Supreme Court has verbally expressed. In its Judgment, Supreme Court has verbally expressed that if a man and a woman living together without marriage, and then they cannot be construes under offense. Many couples in cities are living together and in most of the cases, their parents are nescient of that. Live-in relationships might be or not be better than marriage, but it gives you a clear perspective about your compatibility with your partner and hence of spending a life with him/her.


Sati was prevalent in Archaic India. The British prosper in bringing XVII Aversion of Sati Act which declares sati illicit and penalizable by courts. Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar and E.V. Ramasamy Periyar paved the way for gregarious reform. In India, the first kineticism of marital rights of women centered on three major quandaries, child marriage, enforced widowhood, and property rights of women. The Dowry Proscription Act was enacted to curb the dowry menace. It applies to all people, Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Parsis and Jews. The law was found to fail to stall this malevolence. Dowry Death was later enacted. Where the death of the woman occurred in unnatural circumstances within 7 years of marriage and it is shown that she was subjected to cruelty or harassment by her husband or his relatives in connection with any ordinant dictation for dowry, it would be postulated to be a dowry death, deemed to be caused by the husband or his relatives.  

As society has advanced the Hindu Marriage has gone through sundry changes. Even values annexed to it have transmuted tremendously.  Individuals now are culling their mates according to their own requisites. Many are not getting into matrimonial coalitions due to some quandaries.

The marriage in India are governed by the Hindu Marriage Act and Special Marriage Act which regulates the Marriage. The provision of divorce has withal availed many people to emerge from their marriage. Thus, as believed Hindu marriage is no more indissoluble.

Please understand marriage is a personal cull not a matter of opinion for the society, do not hesitate to do something or take any action that would avail you live a better life, despite the fact that there are certain Religious acts which can only be performed by a married couple. Moreover, we have Sanatan culture, which does not sanction to live without marriage and have a live-in relationship like in Europe.

The Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Development (MSMED) Act, 2006 contains provisions of delayed payment to Micro and Small Enterprise (MSEs). (Section 15- 24). State Governments to establish Micro and Small Enterprise Facilitation Council (MSEFC) for settlement of disputes on getting references/filing on Delayed payments. (Section 20 and 21).

It is important to note that MSME Act is applicable only to the manufacturers and the Service Providers and the classification of enterprises is as follows:

An enterprise shall be classified as a micro, small or medium enterprise on the basis of the following criteria, namely:–

(i) a micro enterprise, where the investment in plant and machinery or equipment does not exceed one crore rupees and turnover does not exceed five crore rupees;

(ii) a small enterprise, where the investment in plant and machinery or equipment does not exceed ten crore rupees and turnover does not exceed fifty crore rupees; and

(iii) a medium enterprise, where the investment in plant and machinery or equipment does not exceed fifty crore rupees and turnover does not exceed two hundred and fifty crore rupees.

For being a MSME Unit, both the investment and turnover criteria has to be met. Even, if, one exceeds it will be covered under the other category. Thus, the Traders are not covered in this Act, which are the major part in running Industrial Units i.e. the manufacturers.

As per MSME Act, there has to be a Buyer and Seller, which has been appropriately defined in the Act. The ‘buyer’ means whoever buys any goods or receives any services from a supplier for consideration and the ‘supplier’ means a micro or small enterprise, who is having valid Udyog Adhaar through Udhyam Portal.

The Act has laid down the provisions for recovery of delayed/default payments for MSMEs. It provides that where there is delay in payment beyond 45 days from the day of acceptance or day of deemed acceptance of the goods or services, the recoveries of the principal with an interest with monthly rests to the suppliers three times of the Bank rates notified by RBI are to be paid, even if, the practice of agreed terms are different. Meaning thereby that  if there are agreed terms of payments of over 45 days, even then if, the payment is not received within 45 days then the buyer has to pay the principle alongwith the interest.

The MSME through Samadhaan can get the payment, if, there is default in payment beyond 45 days irrespective of dispute, if any. The dispute or the delayed payment of dues is to be redressed by MSME Facilitation Council to whom reference has to be made, who will conduct the conciliation proceedings or if, conciliation is not successful then through arbitration proceedings under the provisions of Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 as amended from time to time. Mostly, conciliation is successful between the parties through the Council.

It is important to note that if, the conciliation is not successful then it shall be automatically terminated and the Council can refer the matter for arbitration, which has to be decided within 90 days. Generally, it is seen that the dispute or delayed payment is settled through mediation. In case of unsuccessful mediation, arbitration is there, which is a mode for recovery and is an alternative to civil / criminal litigation.

It is fast track legal dispute redressal system, as referred the matter is to be resolved within 90 days by the Facilitation Council. Composition of Micro and Small Enterprises Facilitation Council is as follows:

  • The Micro and Small Enterprise Facilitation Council shall consist of not less than three, but not more than five members to be appointed from amongst the following categories, namely:
  • Director of Industries, by whatever name called, or any other officer not below the rank of such Director, in the Department of the State Government having administrative control of the small scale industries or, as the case may be, micro, small and medium enterprises; and
  • One or more office-bearers or representatives of associations of micro or small industry or enterprises in the State; and
  • One or more representatives of banks and financial institutions lending to micro or small enterprises; or
  • One or more persons having special knowledge in the field of industry, finance, law, trade or commerce.
  • The person appointed under clause (i) of sub-section (1) shall be the Chairperson of the Micro and Small Enterprises Facilitation Council.
  • The composition of the Micro and Small Enterprises Facilitation Council, the manner of filling vacancies of its members and the procedure to be followed in the discharge of their functions by the members shall be such as may be prescribed by the State Government.

Thus, the substantial powers for redressal of disputes have been delegated to the State Government, without considering the plight of the industry at the Central level.

The procedure is as per the Arbitration Act. The Appeal has to be filed with prior payment of 75{551c903f756d5bf12b7d58e2eb1e8b74af35058efa7a05d3e7b41e9147979503} of the award to be paid to the Seller.

It is informed that the FAQ has been prepared by the office of DC(MSME), Ministry of MSME after consulting the legal persons in the field and information available.

MSME Samadhaan is a Portal created by Office of DC(MSME), Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) where Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) having Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum (UAM) can file their applications online regarding delayed payments. MSME SAMADHAAN online portal is developed by Ministry of MSME only to facilitate MSEs filing of their applications regarding delayed payments online. The application once filed is forwarded automatically online to the concerned Micro and Small Enterprise Facilitation Council (MSEFC) established by the State/UTs as per the provisions of MSMED-Act 2006. Action on the applications regarding delayed payment is taken by the concerned MSEFC only. Only the MSEFCs have been empowered as per MSMED Act, 2006 for taking decisions regarding its reference made with them.

Ministry of MSME does not intervene in the matters of MSEFC being individual functioning. MSME Samadhaan Portal has been created only to facilitate online applications regarding delayed payments. Physical applications can also be filed at the concerned MSEFC and the applications are converted into case by the concerned MSEFC. Thus, after submission, the application is automatically forwarded online to concerned MSEFC. Therefore, concerned MSEFC is to be contacted after filing the application online on MSME Samadhaan Portal. The contact address of concerned MSEFC is mentioned on the acknowledgement sent on the registered email of the applicant. The work order is compulsory for filing the application. However, in case purchase order is oral an affidavit to that effect is to be submitted. Multiple invoices can be combined into single PDF and can be uploaded. The affidavit of oral purchase order is to be included in single PDF. The OTP is sent to the registered email ID in Udyog Aadhaar.

Categories admitted in MSEFCs are in respect of goods manufacturing and service rendering sector for which UAM has been obtained. These categories cannot be challenged by the respondent/buyer. Application under Section 19 of the MSMED Act, 2006 cannot be entertained by any court. Deposited amount can be released to the applicant as per the directions to the Court. It is the act of court for which applicant cannot suffer. The silence of buyer is confirmation of liabilities upon him.

The 90 days period of settlement of claim begins only after notice of Arbitration under Section 18(3) of MSMED Act, 2006. The council should deliver a conciliation award after the successful conciliation. It is called award by mutual consent. It is valid award and buyer cannot make appeal against it. Council Members are judges having equal power. They should be well-versed in factual aspect of the case before them. Under administrative exigencies, the Chairperson can delegate the presiding power to another subordinate official or another member, but, the meeting/proceeding can take place, if Coram of three members is complete, members can elect the Chairperson and take further proceedings.

It is necessary to mention why Chairperson could not attend the hearing. There is provision for a Member Secretary as council Member and he can act as a Member in case of any exigency. Member Secretary is acting as Registrar of MSEFC and judge also when he sits in Council. A legal notice by the supplier to buyer is not necessary before filling the case in the Council. But, a claim can be filed for interest alone where the claimant has received principal of dues already. Only the claim under Section 6 of Interest on Delayed Payments to Small Scale and Ancillary Industrial Undertaking Act, 1993 if pending, before IFC or Civil Courts, they can be considered. However, to approach the MSEFC, liberty of court is to be obtained on earlier claims.

If there is a false claim from the applicant, a penalty cannot be imposed by Council, but the petition is to be rejected summarily. A grace period given for MSEs registration to the supplier can be considered while entertaining the claim. It is not hurdle in the matter of claim. The receivables from buyer such as advance deposit, EMD, Statutory deposits as other than supply of goods and services can be claimed in the claim before the Council, which includes in the total due amount. Breach of contract is not within scope of MSMED Act, 2006. Rejection of goods should be genuine within 15 days of the receipt of goods and its immediate communication to supplier. The penal interest is calculated on a monthly compounding basis.

The jurisdiction of State Council can be extended to a district where no council is available. The power of dissent to a member of Council in the proceedings is available and recording in minutes is to be done, but majority decision prevails. If the conciliation conducted by Council fails, Council can take up Arbitration automatically, but diverse view is taken by Bombay High Court. Hon’ble Supreme Court says that conciliation and arbitration are the legally vested functions of the Council. It is not necessary for Full Council to conduct conciliation. It is sufficient for Chairman or any member alone to participate in conciliation. It is not commercial conciliation or analysis of various contractual liabilities. It is simple arbitration to get compliance of Section 16 of MSMED Act, 2006.

State Government under Section 20 of MSMED Act, 2006 is empowered to constitute additional Councils. The process/procedure of execution of Award and the role of Council in assisting the Claimant is under Section 36 of Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 as amended from time to time. The Council has no power to review, revise or amend its own award. After final award it becomes “Funcous officio” means having no relation to award. A Government Department as a buyer can be proceeded against in the Council.

Whenever a notice is received by Council from an Appellate Court to represent as witness, the Council is not required to appear in any court as it is only a formal party. There is no limit of pecuniary jurisdiction for State and District Council. The date of receipt of the copy of award is only effective date. If amount is claimed in the Civil Court, then it cannot be claimed before MSEFC. If an Appellate Court reverts back the case to the Council, it is to be decided as per instructions of the Higher Court. In case of IBC proceedings, the Award by MSEFC is to be communicated to Interim Resolution Professional (IRP) and then to NCLT as per procedural law. An Award holder from MSEFC can gain any preference as creditor in Insolvency proceedings. The Award Holder is considered as a secured creditor. Notices should be served to a dissolved buyer firm and partners even if subsequently reconstituted/merged with a new entity in partnership liabilities are unlimited. It is a lengthy procedure as first claim is to be kept alive. Council cannot deal with criminal offences related to subject matter of claim.

The request of any party to have representation by an attorney or any other authorized agent can be allowed by Council by way of irrevocable power of Attorney. His commitment must be binding upon buyer. Resolution is required for this. No limitation is applicable in Arbitration by Council, as law of limitation is not applicable. But, delay and latches principle is applicable. Supplier sleeping over his legal rights cannot get assistance of Council. It is only summery proceedings and on the basis of affidavits of both the parties, the dispute can be resolved.

The MSMED Act, 2006 is set in motion after supplies of goods and services made by supplier and buyer accepts them but does not pay the bill within 45 days. Petition with Purchase Order, Bills, delivery challans of goods and services and demand letter etc. are to be kept if the matter is challenged in any higher court. In any other case, where the amount is already realized by the supplier, it is at the discretion of the MSEFC. Notices can be served by e-mail/SMS/Whattsapp because Email is legal document and even Whattsapp. The claim should be submitted in hard copy because it is necessary as submission is required duly signed and verified.

The notice of Council is to be published in daily Newspaper of the area where the Respondent is located, with the orders of Council after 3 notices are issued. It is at the discretion of the MSEFC Council and it can exercise its own diligence by giving opportunity to the applicant since he has to prove his claim before council. When the supplier is a micro or small enterprises and agreement is made between Micro/ Small Enterprises in India. Goods are purchased/taken by foreign buyer and he returns to his country. Payment terms are not honored in these circumstances, matter can be filed before the Council. After following due procedure of law, the Council can issue award and same could be sent to both Consulates i.e. Foreign buyers Consulate in that country. It can be enforced.

A private Arbitration clause in sale contract prevents admission of claim for Arbitration by Council. The proceedings can be conducted in local language, but with English also so that Higher Court should understand later on. Claim preparation is the responsibility of the claimant. It is advisable to get certified from C.A. Deceased buyer is liable through his legal heirs, but dissolved company is always under some authority and claim is maintainable.

A Company through its M.D. with resolution of Board of Directors and Partnership firms through its Managing Partner/s. It is absolutely necessary to have purchase/work order as evidence. A Council cannot allow secondary and corroborated evidence. Acknowledgement on invoice, delivery challans or part payment, email etc. all are accepted. Members of Council are not liable for prosecution, if inadvertently an erroneous judgment is delivered by the Council. On the contrary they are expected to act without fear and favour.

Chairman has no veto power in judging a case. No GM, DIC is ex-officio member in Council and any new official in his official position can take over as Chairman. An Award should be with seal of the Council. Original is to be retained by the MSEFC and only certified copies to be delivered. Award should bear round seal on every page. The consent of absentee members for Award can be obtained by circulation to fulfil quorum requirement. The Coram of three Members physically is must.

It looks on the paper a fast track legal disputes redressal system, as the recoveries are very fast and as the award has to be given within 90 days of the reference made is a decree in itself. But, it is seen that this is not actual state of affairs for MSME Act, as generally as we have seen that when human intervention is there, there is always delayed decisions despite the fact that there is Champions Portal, which means Creation and Harmonious Application of Modern Processes for Increasing the Output and National Strength.

The single window system for the MSMEs 

It has been felt necessary to put up and promote a unified, empowered, robust, bundled and technology driven platform for helping and promoting the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) of the country. As the name suggests it will aim at Creation and Harmonious Application of Modern Processes for Increasing the Output and National Strength. Accordingly, the name of the system is CHAMPIONS. This is basically for making the smaller units big by helping and handholding, in particular, by solving their problems and grievances

Three basic objectives of the CHAMPIONS: 

  1. To help the MSMEs in this difficult situation in terms of finance, raw materials, labour, permissions, etc.
  2. To help the MSMEs capture new opportunities in manufacturing and services sectors.
  3. To identify the sparks i.e. the bright MSMEs who can withstand at present and become national and international champions.

As the composition & decision is to be taken by Micro & Small Enterprise Facilitation Council and is to be created and decided by State Government., the Act does not provide the provisions within what time the State Government has to constitute the Facilitation Council or to hold the meetings to decide the issue.

The experience says either there is delay in constitution of Facilitation Council and even when the said Council has been constituted, no meetings are held for disposal of application reference made under the Act for getting default payment recoveries. The Government must consider this aspect seriously and the Act is to be amended in such a way that minimum human intervention is there and there is maximum period to be allowed for Facilitation Council to get the award from date of reference including creation of the Facilitation Council, holding meetings, issuance of Notices, adjournment of hearings and holding of conciliation and arbitration proceedings, as maximum period to decide all legal issues of 300 days from the date of acceptance of application by adjudication authority is under IBC.

Therefore, under this Act also, such provisions has to be laid down otherwise on one or the other ground, the buyer tries to get the matter delayed in Facilitation Council and the purpose of laying the said provisions is forfeited.

The government’s move to change the definition of the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to assist companies in dealing with the COVID-19 aftermath, has brought about a surprising and welcome change. India is now a country of small businesses with over 99 percent of companies falling under this category. The introduction of the twin factors of investment and turnover over the earlier definition based only on investment on plant and machinery has brought about this change.

The earlier definition based on investment in machinery and equipment was to get the main benefit of excise duty relief apart from other government benefits. Excise duty has been done away with the introduction of GST.

An enterprise shall be classified as a micro, small or medium enterprise on the basis of the following criteria, namely: —

(i) a micro enterprise, where the investment in plant and machinery or equipment does not exceed one crore rupees and turnover does not exceed five crore rupees;

(ii) a small enterprise, where the investment in plant and machinery or equipment does not exceed ten crore rupees and turnover does not exceed fifty crore rupees; and

(iii) a medium enterprise, where the investment in plant and machinery or equipment does not exceed fifty crore rupees and turnover does not exceed two hundred and fifty crore rupees.

  • An enterprise for the purpose of this process will be known as Udyam and its Registration Process will be known as ‘Udyam Registration’
  • A permanent registration number will be given after registration.
  • After completion of the process of registration, a certificate will be issued online.

Spirited enquiry by the government to further plug the gaps

The GST data now reveals that almost 99 per cent of businesses now fall into the MSME definition on the turnover criteria, and more than half the companies registered with GST have less than 20 lakh turnover. The export turnover criteria has also been excluded from the definition, providing relief support to several units while allowing them to grow bigger without restriction. The Income tax department’s data and analysis show that after considering the depreciation of assets, only a few thousand firms in India have an investment in machinery and equipment that exceeds Rs. 50 crore, the upper limit of the medium enterprise.

Encouraged on by the information released by the GST authorities, the government now intends to fill the gaps using the IT and GST data. The MSME ministry has detected that one Aadhaar number can be used to create up to five Udyog Aadhaar numbers, the unique number given by the MSME ministry to the small businesses that register with them. Business enterprises can now develop into multiple, separate supportive entities and continue to claim all the benefits given by the government.

As per latest RBI Notification Number FIDD.MSME & NFS.BC.No.4/06.02.31/2020-21 dated 21.08.2020, clarifications regarding new definition of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises is as follows:

The circular FIDD.MSME & NFS.BC.No.3/06.02.31/2020-21 dated July 2, 2020 on ‘Credit flow to Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Sector’.

2. In view of the representations from IBA and banks regarding applicability of certain aspects contained in the Gazette notification No. S.O. 2119(E) dated June 26, 2020 on new criteria for classifying the enterprises as micro, small and medium enterprises, the Ministry of MSME, vide their Office Memorandum (OM) No.2/1(5)/2019 – P & G/Policy (pt. IV) dated August 6, 2020 and letter F.No.5/2(2)/2020 – P & G/Policy dated August 13, 2020 has, inter alia, clarified the following:

2.1 Classification of Enterprises as per new definition

(i) Classification / re-classification of MSMEs is the statutory responsibility of the GoI, Ministry of MSME, as per the provisions of the MSMED Act, 2006.

(ii) As per para 2 of the said Gazette notification all enterprises are required to register online and obtain ‘Udyam Registration Certificate’. All lenders may, therefore, obtain ‘Udyam Registration Certificate ’from the entrepreneurs.

2.2 Validity of EM Part II and UAMs issued till June 30, 2020

(i) The existing Entrepreneurs Memorandum (EM) Part II and Udyog Aadhaar Memorandum (UAMs) of the MSMEs obtained till June 30, 2020 shall remain valid till March 31, 2021. Further, all enterprises registered till June 30, 2020, shall file new registration in the Udyam Registration Portal well before March 31, 2021.

(ii) ‘Udyam Registration Certificate’ issued on self-declaration basis for enterprises exempted from filing GSTR and / or ITR returns will be valid for the time being, upto March 31, 2021.

2.3 Value of Plant and Machinery or Equipment

The online form for Udyam Registration captures depreciated cost as on 31st March each year of the relevant previous year. Therefore, the value of Plant and Machinery or Equipment for all purposes of the Notification No. S.O. 2119(E) dated June 26, 2020 and for all the enterprises shall mean the Written Down Value (WDV) as at the end of the Financial Year as defined in the Income Tax Act and not cost of acquisition or original price, which was applicable in the context of the earlier classification criteria.

3. In view of the above, instructions contained in circular FIDD.MSME & NFS.BC.No.10/06.02.31/2017-18 dated July 13, 2017 on ‘Investment in plant and machinery for the purpose of classification as Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises – documents to be relied upon’ are superseded.

4. Further, other instructions contained in circular FIDD.MSME & NFS.BC.No.3/06.02.31/2020-21 dated July 2, 2020 remains the same.

If, written down value is to be taken then it has to be as per Income Tax Act, 1961 rates but, no where specified at what rates whether on SLM or WDV basis. This is an anomaly. If, the assets were appreciated by the enterprise then what is to be taken as investment. The Government must come out with clarification on this.

It is important to note that the MSME covers only the manufacturing and service sector and not the Traders, which are in large numbers in the Country. They have to take huge amount of money from the manufacturing sector. Thus, the trading community must be included in MSME sector.

Dharma Beliefs:

Almost in every house, who believes in Sanatan Dharma, one may found Tulsi (Ocimum Sactum/Holy Basil).  It is basically found in Indian Sub-continent. It is considered a sacred plant. It is also called “Vrinda” in Sanatan Dharma or in Hindu belief Goddess Tulsi is called “Vrinda”. It is regarded as avtar of Lakshmi and thus the consort of God Vishnu.

In ritual worship of Vishnu and his avtars like Krishna & Vithoba, generally it is mandatory to offer the leaves of Tulsi. It is also traditional & cultural, the plant is grown in front of the house or the central courtyard. According to some mythological story, it was said that Tulsi is actually an ardent lover of Krishna whom Radha has cursed to be a plant. Hindus believe that every house that has Tulsi plant is a place of pilgrimage and unnatural death can never enter. Even the withering of Tulsi indicates that some bad is going to happen in the house.

Mythological Story (Religious Views):

According to another Hindu mythological story, a demon named Jalandhar has a wife called Vrinda. Jalandhar penanced and got a boon that he will live till eternity until he loses his Krishna kavach (his armor) and his wife loses her chastity. But when the demon started created havoc in all the three worlds, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva thought of ending up his life. Then Lord Vishnu approached Jalandhar and asked for Krishna kavach which Jalandhar gives off in a weak moment.

Then, Lord Shiva fights with Jalandhar while Lord Vishnu disguises himself as Jalandhar and breaches his wife’s chastity. This breaks the boon he was given and Jalandhar gets killed.

When Vrinda came to know the fact, she hated Lord Shiva for killing her husband. She cursed Vishnu to become a black stone and to stay away from his wife Lakshmi. Feeling betrayed, Vrinda jumps into the ocean and sacrifices her life. Lord Vishnu transforms her soul into a plant and names it as Tulsi.

Lord Vishnu gets turned into Saligrama and the curse of being away from wife gets into reality during Ramavatar. Vishnu in the form of Saligrama is married to Tulsi on Prabodhini Ekadasi which is commemorated as the day of Tulsi Vivah. Later, Tulsi attains a divine status and was blessed to be the dearest of Lord Vishnu. Hence Lord Vishnu is always worshipped with Tulsi leaves.

There is another story, which narrates that the creator God Brahma reside in the branches. All Hindu pilgrimage centres reside in its roots, the Ganges flows within its roots, all deities are in its stem and its leaves, and that the most sacred Hindu texts, the Vedas are found in the upper part of the holy basil’s branches. A person who waters and cares for the Tulsi daily is believed to gain moksha (salvation) and the divine grace of Vishnu, even if he does not worship it. Traditionally, the daily worship and care of the plant is the responsibility of the women of the household. Though daily worship is prescribed, Tuesdays and Fridays are considered especially sacred for Tulsi worship.

According to legend, she was the wife of demon Shankhchud who was killed by Lord Shiva. Hence, offering Tulsi leaves to Shiva is prohibited. It is considered inauspicious to pluck Tulsi leaves on Sundays and Ekadashi. Hence, the practice should be avoided.

Tulsi leaves should not be plucked even after sunlight. It is believed in Sanatan Dharma that if any particular pooja or program is happening anywhere, it is necessary to use the Basil leaves in it or else the pooja is not completed without it. Tulsi plant is considered auspicious in the house. Tulsi or holy Basil is a sacred plant according to Hindu belief.

There is generation of heat energy in the dormant and serene sattvik frequencies present in the Tulsi plant by the touch of women which leads to decrease in its sattvikta (sattva quality). Hence they are prohibited from gathering or plucking the Tulsi leaves.

Though there are such references in certain scriptures that Tulsi plucking can be avoided on Purnima, Amavasya, Dvadashi, Sunday, lunar eclipse, a vaishnava should avoid “Dvadasi day” to pluck Tulsi leaves. So the devotee in order to not to disturb or hurt her, don’t pluck leaves.

Tulsi needs high amount of water. If you water in the morning, the plant dries up by the evening. This happens even when I used plastic pots to reduce evaporation. So disbalance of watering can be a reason of dying.

Tulsi leaves should not be plucked by women

The reason behind this popular belief might just shock you. It is believed that women have a high proportion of raja component when compared to men. There is generation of heat energy in the dormant and serene sattvik frequencies present in the tulsi plant by the touch of women which leads to decrease in its sattvikta (sattva quality). Hence they are prohibited from gathering or plucking the tulsi leaves.


Tulsi Vivah:

A ceremony known as Tulsi Vivah is performed by the Hindus between Prabodhini Ekadashi (eleventh lunar day of the waxing moon of Kartika) to Kartik Poornima (full moon in Kartika), usually on the eleventh or the twelfth lunar day. It is the ceremonial wedding of the Tulsi plant to Vishnu, in the form of his image, Shaligram or a Krishna or Rama image.

In worship of other deities:

Set of Japa mala, made from Tulsi wood, with head bead in foreground.

Vaishnavas traditionally use japa malas (a string of Hindu prayer beads) made from Tulsi stems or roots called Tulsi malas, which are an important symbol of the initiation. Tulsi malas are considered to be auspicious for the wearer, and believed to connect him with Vishnu or Krishna and confer the protection of the deity.

There are conflicting accounts about Tulsi leaves being used in the worship of the God Shiva, a rival sect (Shaiva) God to the Vaishnava Vishnu. While Bael leaves are often offered to Shiva, some authors note that Tulsi may also be offered to him. Tulsi worship is sometimes regarded the worship of Shiva, conveying the deity’s omnipresence. Shiva’s aniconic symbol – the linga – is sometimes prescribed to have made from the black soil from the roots of the Tulsi plant. However, Tulsi is taboo in worship of the Devi – the Hindu Divine Mother as the pungent aroma of the Tulsi plant angers her. It is also important for the worship of Hanuman. In Orissa, the Tulsi plant represents all local deities and rituals to propitiate them are offered in front of the plant. The Nayars of Malabar offer Tulsi plants to pacify evil spirits.

Importance in Sanatna Dharma:

In Srimad Bhagavatam,the significance of the Tulsi over other plants is described as:

Although flowering plants like the mandāra, kunda, kurabaka, utpala, campaka, arṇa, punnāga, nāgakeśara, bakula, lily and pārijāta are full of transcendental fragrance, they are still conscious of the austerities performed by Tulsi, for Tulsi is given special preference by the Lord, who garlands Himself with Tulsi leaves

— Srimad Bhagavatam, Canto 4, Chapter 15, Verse 19[19]

Every part of the Tulsi plant is revered and considered sacred. Even the soil around the plant is holy. The Padma Purana declares a person who is cremated with Tulsi twigs in his funeral pyre gains moksha and a place in Vishnu’s abode Vaikuntha.

Kinds of Tulsi:

There are three types of Tulsi described in Hindy mythology. Ocimum tenuiflorum (or Ocimum sanctum L.) includes two botanically and phytochemically distinct cultivars that include Rama or Sri Tulsi (green leaves) and Krishna or Shyama Tulsi (purplish leaves), while Ocimum gratissimum is a third type of Tulsi known as Vana or wild/forest Tulsi (dark green leaves). The different Tulsi types exhibit vast diversity in morphology and phytochemical composition including secondary metabolites, yet they can be distinguished from other Ocimum species by the colour of their yellow pollen, high levels of eugenol, and smaller chromosome number. Despite being distinct species with Ocimum tenuiflorum having six times less DNA than Ocimum gratissimum, they are traditionally used in the same way to treat similar ailments. For consistency, this review uses the term Tulsi to refer to both Ocimum tenuiflorum or Ocimum gratissimum.

Religious Views:

Why no water offered on Sunday?

There is no reason for not watering Tulsi plant on Sunday. Like any other plant, Tulsi is also one. However care needs to be taken to give it only right amount of water. In order to optimise amount of water a practice of weekly off has been introduced.

Often we water it in the evening as well but that is the wrong way of keeping the plant healthy or as per Vastu getting the right benefits of the “Tulsi plant”. Never water the plant in the evening. “Tulsi plant” is a very important for many Indian households.

Tulsi leaves should not be plucked on Sunday

As per the Padma Purana “Any person, who picks Tulsi leaves on Dvadashi, falls into a grievously hellish planet to suffer.”The philosophy behind this is that Tulsi Maharani, the pure devotee of the Lord, observes a fast on these days. So the devotee in order to not to disturb or hurt her, don’t pluck leaves. I am not able to establish much logic here but I assume that this tradition would have came into being to discourage the plucking of leafs for environment purposes.

Divine Tulsi:

In Sanatan Dharma, Tulsi is worshipped as a goddess and every part of the Tulsi plant is revered and considered sacred, including the leaves, stem, flower, root, seeds and oil. Even the surrounding soil, which has recently been found to harbor beneficial endophytic fungi is considered an aspect of the divine. As such, Hindi households are considered incomplete without a Tulsi plant, typically in an ornate earthen pot situated in a courtyard where Tulsi serves both practical and ceremonial purposes. For example, Tulsi’s distinct clove-like aroma arising from its high eugenol content serves to link the householder to the divine while also repelling mosquitoes, flies and other harmful insects. Tulsi is further integrated into daily life through evening and morning rituals and other spiritual and purification practices that can involve ingesting its leaves or consuming Tulsi tea.

In addition to sanctifying the home, Tulsi is used ceremonially in Sanatan Dharma and some Greek Orthodox Churches to create “holy water.” Tulsi wood or seeds are also used to make Tulsi malas, which are strings of beads used to help the mind focus during meditation, chanting and devotional practices and therefore ceremonially connect mind, body and spirit. Tulsi has also been used in cities to combat air pollution and hundreds of thousands of Tulsi plants have been planted around the Taj Mahal in Agra to help protect the iconic marble building from environmental pollution damage.

Tulsi as an Elixir

Tulsi or holy Basil is used in Indian Sub-continent and been used within ayurvedic medicines more than 3000 years. It is an ayurvedic system, It is referred to as an “Elixir of Life” for its healing powers. In the Indian Materia Medica, Tulsi leaf extracts are described for treatment of many diseases like bronchitis, rheumatism, and pyrexia. The juice of leaves has been applied as a drop for ear ache, while the tea infusion has been used for treatment of gastric and hepatic disorders. The roots and stems were also traditionally used to treat mosquito and snake bites and for malaria.

In numerous study, Tulsi leaf having potent pharmacological actions that include adaptogenic, metabolic, immunomodulatory, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, hepatoprotective, radioprotective, antimicrobial and antidiabetic effects that have been extensively reviewed previously.

Ayurveda and lifestyle medicine:

As a science of life and the world’s oldest medical system, it uses and draws upon India’s incredible biodiversity with a variety that is unsurpassed by any medical system; yet, of all the herbs used, none has a status comparable to Tulsi or holy basil (Ocimum sanctum).

Tulsi: A potent adaptogen:

Tulsi is an aromatic shrub in the basil family Lamiaceae (tribe ocimeae) that is thought to have originated in north central India and now grows native throughout the eastern world tropics.[2] Within Ayurveda, Tulsi is known as “The Incomparable One,” “Mother Medicine of Nature” and “The Queen of Herbs,” and is revered as an “elixir of life” that is without equal for both its medicinal and spiritual properties. Within India, Tulsi has been adopted into spiritual rituals and lifestyle practices that provide a vast array of health benefits that are just beginning to be confirmed by modern science. This emerging science on Tulsi, which reinforces ancient Ayurvedic wisdom, suggests that Tulsi is a tonic for the body, mind and spirit that offers solutions to many modern day health problems.

Tulsi is perhaps one of the best examples of Ayurveda’s holistic lifestyle approach to health. Tulsi tastes hot and bitter and is said to penetrate the deep tissues, dry tissue secretions and normalize kapha and vata. Daily consumption of Tulsi is said to prevent disease, promote general health, wellbeing and longevity and assist in dealing with the stresses of daily life. Tulsi is also credited with giving luster to the complexion, sweetness to the voice and fostering beauty, intelligence, stamina and a calm emotional disposition. In addition to these health-promoting properties, Tulsi is recommended as a treatment for a range of conditions including anxiety, cough, asthma, diarrhea, fever, dysentery, arthritis, eye diseases, otalgia, indigestion, hiccups, vomiting, gastric, cardiac and genitourinary disorders, back pain, skin diseases, ringworm, insect, snake and scorpion bites and malaria.

Considered as a potent adaptogen, Tulsi has a unique combination of pharmacological actions that promote wellbeing and resilience.

The studies reveal that Tulsi has a unique combination of actions that include: Antimicrobial (including antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antiprotozoal, antimalarial, anthelmintic), mosquito repellent, anti-diarrheal, anti-oxidant, anti-cataract, anti-inflammatory, chemopreventive, radioprotective, hepato-protective, neuro-protective, cardio-protective, anti-diabetic, anti-hypercholesterolemia, anti-hypertensive, anti-carcinogenic, analgesic, anti-pyretic, anti-allergic, immunomodulatory, central nervous system depressant, memory enhancement, anti-asthmatic, anti-tussive, diaphoretic, anti-thyroid, anti-fertility, anti-ulcer, anti-emetic, anti-spasmodic, anti-arthritic, adaptogenic, anti-stress, anti-cataract, anti-leukodermal and anti-coagulant activities. These pharmacological actions help the body and mind cope with a wide range of chemical, physical, infectious and emotional stresses and restore physiological and psychological function.

Protection and detoxification:

Many of the physiological benefits of Tulsi can be attributed to its ability to assist with the body’s internal housekeeping and protection of the body from toxin-induced damage. These functions are often attributed to Tulsi’s high content of phenolic compounds and anti-oxidant properties, with Krishna Tulsi (black/purple variety) having a higher phenolic content and anti-oxidant capacity than white Vana (wild) Tulsi.

Toxicant stress: Chemicals, heavy metals and radiation:

The ability of Tulsi to protect against the damaging effects of various toxicants has been documented in numerous experimental studies. These studies attest to the ability of Tulsi to prevent liver, kidney and brain injury by protecting against the genetic, immune and cellular damage caused by pesticides, pharmaceuticals and industrial chemicals. Thus, Tulsi has been shown to protect against the toxic effects of industrial chemicals such as butylparaben, carbon tetrachloride, copper sulfate and ethanol, and common pesticides such as rogor, chlorpyrifos, endosulfan and lindane. Tulsi has also been shown to protect against the toxic effects of many pharmaceuticals drugs including acetaminophen, meloxicam, paracetamol, haloperidol and anti-tubercular drugs.

In addition to protecting against toxic chemicals, Tulsi has also been shown to protect against the toxic effects of heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, cadmium, chromium and mercury and the toxic effects of radiation. Tulsi exerts its radio-protective effects by scavenging free radicals and reducing the oxidative cellular and chromosomal damage induced by radiation, thereby reducing organ damage and enhancing postradiation survival in experimental animals.

Physical stress:

The actions that protect against the toxic effects of chemicals and radiation also help to address the toxic effects of many physical stressors. Prolonged physical exertion, physical restraint, exposure to cold and excessive noise disturb homeostasis by inducing physiological and metabolic stress.

Metabolic stress:

Metabolic stress due to poor diet, low physical activity and psychological stress is a prominent feature of modern lifestyles and “metabolic syndrome” is estimated to affect as much as one-third of modern populations. Metabolic syndrome, also known as “prediabetes” or “Syndrome X,” includes the “deadly quartet” of centripetal obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol and poor glucose regulation and is associated with chronic inflammation and a greater risk of diabetes, heart disease and stroke. While the exact causes of metabolic syndrome are still being debated, there is evidence to suggest that Tulsi can assist in dealing with many features of metabolic syndrome and their consequences.

Numerous test tube and animal experiments as well as human clinical trials have shown that Tulsi has anti-diabetic activity. Studies using diabetic laboratory animals have shown that Tulsi can reduce blood glucose, correct abnormal lipid profiles and protect the liver and kidneys from the metabolic damage caused by high glucose levels. Tulsi has also been shown to improve lipid profiles, prevent weight gain, hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, hypertriglyceridemia and insulin resistance and protect the organs and blood vessels from atherosclerosis in laboratory animals fed high-fat diets. Similarly, in human clinical trials, Tulsi has shown to decrease glucose levels, improve blood pressure and lipid profiles and reduce many diabetic symptoms in patients with type 2 diabetes. The beneficial metabolic effects of Tulsi are multiple and include protecting the liver, kidneysand pancreatic islet cells from free radical damage; enhancing liver bile acid synthesis and reducing liver lipid synthesis; enhancing insulin secretion and action; lowering cortisol levels; and reducing inflammation. The anti-inflammatory action of Tulsi, which has been observed in both acute and chronic inflammatory models in animals is attributed to Tulsi’s eugenol and linoleic acid content and the inhibition of both the cyclooxygenase and the lipoxygenase pathways of arachidonic acid metabolism. This enables Tulsi to exert anti-inflammatory effects comparable to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as phenylbutazone,[68] ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin[69] and indomethacin.

Infection protection:

Modern research has revealed that Tulsi has anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal activity that includes activity against many pathogens responsible for human infections. Tulsi has also been shown to boost defenses against infective threats by enhancing immune responses in non stressed and stressed animals and healthy humans.  While no human trials have been published, there is experimental evidence that Tulsi may help in the treatment of various human bacterial infections including urinary tract infections, skin and wound infections, typhoid fever, cholera, tuberculosis, gonorrhea,acne, herpes simplex, leishmaniasis, various pneumonias and fungal infections as well as mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue, malaria and filariasis.

Tulsi’s broad-spectrum activity, which includes activity against Streptococcus mutans, the organism responsible for tooth decay, further suggests that it can be used as a herbal mouth wash for treating bad breath, gum disease and mouth ulcers. This has been confirmed in clinical trials that have demonstrated that rinsing with Tulsi is as effective as 0.2{551c903f756d5bf12b7d58e2eb1e8b74af35058efa7a05d3e7b41e9147979503} Chlorhexidine and Listerine in reducing the levels of Streptococcus mutans and that a herbal mouthwash that includes Tulsi is preferred for its taste and convenience.

Tulsi’s unique combination of antibacterial antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities also makes it useful in wound healing. This is supported by experimental evidence that has shown that Tulsi can increase wound-breaking strength and accelerate wound healing in laboratory animals. Tulsi has also been shown to have anti-ulcer and ulcer-healing activity that has been observed in many different animal models including aspirin-, indomethacin-, alcohol-, histamine-, reserpine-, serotonin-, acetic acid-, meloxicam-, cold restraint-, pyloric ligation- and stress-induced ulceration models. This anti-ulcer activity is attributed to multiple actions including the reduction of offensive factors such as acid-pepsin secretion and lipid peroxidation and the enhancement of gastric defensive factors such as mucin secretion, cellular mucus and longevity of mucosal cells.

Mental stress:

In addition to physical, toxic and infective stress, modern living is associated with heightened levels of psychological stress caused by the many demands and fast pace of modern life. This stress compounds the toxic effects of chemical pollutants and the constant fear of pervasive toxic chemicals can itself lead to even further stress and anxiety that may be just as toxic as the chemicals causing it. While the reality of daily chemical exposure cannot be denied, regular consumption of Tulsi not only helps protect and detoxify the body’s cells and organs, it can also help reduce toxic stress by relaxing and calming the mind and offering many psychological benefits including anti-depressant activity and positive effects on memory and cognitive function.

The psychotherapeutic properties of Tulsi have been explored in various animal experiments that reveal that Tulsi has anti-anxiety and anti-depressant properties, with effects comparable to diazepam and antidepressants drugs. Animal studies further reveal that Tulsi enhances memory and cognitive function and protects against aging-induced memory deficits.  Similarly, in human studies, Tulsi has been observed to reduce stress, anxiety and depression, with a 6-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study reporting that Tulsi significantly improves general stress scores, sexual and sleep problems and symptoms such as forgetfulness and exhaustion.

While modern scientific studies suggest that Tulsi is effective in treating a range of stressful conditions, within Ayurveda, Tulsi is more commonly recommended as a preventive measure to enhance the ability to adapt to both psychological and physical stress and therefore prevent the development of stress-related diseases. To this end, many Ayurvedic practitioners recommend the regular consumption of Tulsi tea as an essential lifestyle practice.

Nature nurture:

The cultivation and reverence for the Tulsi plant in the home not only serves specific religious purposes it also directly connects the devotee with the creative power of nature. Connection with nature is profoundly healing and life-affirming; yet, the potential health, emotional, social and cognitive benefits of connection with nature are only just being realized in the west where disconnection from nature and “nature deficit” are common. A review of the scientific literature on the health benefits of connection to nature suggest that “access to nature plays a vital role in human health, wellbeing and development that has not been fully recognized and there is now a global movement to reconnect people with nature that has arisen out of concerns over nature deficit, sedentary lifestyles, obesity, mental health issues, excessive use of electronic media, environmental degradation, wildlife conservation, sustainability and climate change.

Tulsi as a vehicle of consciousness:

Perhaps one of the greatest of Tulsi’s benefits in the modern world comes from its global distribution based on its cultivation using ethical, fair trade, organic and ecological farming practices. There is a growing realization that in order to tackle issues of food security, rural poverty, hunger, environmental degradation and climate change a shift in agriculture is needed from a “green revolution” to an “ecological intensification revolution. This has been highlighted in a recent United Nations document titled “Wake Up Before It’s Too Late,” which calls for the global community to endorse and advocate for local solutions to toxicity, food insecurity and poverty, such as the use of organic and small-scale farming over the use of genetically modified organisms and monocultures. While ecological farming methods are not specific to Tulsi, they have been effectively applied to Tulsi cultivation by Organic India Pvt. Ltd. This company, which was established as a “vehicle of consciousness,” works with thousands of organic Tulsi farmers in India to produce a business ecology whereby rural Indian farmers gain their dignity and a healthy and sustainable livelihood while serving to nurture the land they live on and produce a range of teas that enable consumers around the world to access the benefits of Tulsi.

Modern day scientific research into Tulsi demonstrates the many psychological and physiological benefits from consuming Tulsi and provides a testament to the wisdom inherent in Hinduism and Ayurveda, which celebrates Tulsi as a plant that can be worshipped, ingested, made into tea and used for medicinal and spiritual purposes within daily life. In providing a focus for ethical, sustainable and ecological farming practices that provides a livelihood for thousands of farmers, the cultivation of Tulsi goes beyond providing benefits for individuals and households and begins to address broader social, economic and environmental issues.

A Herbal Remedy:

According to Jeevan Kulkarni, author of ‘Historical Truths & Untruths Exposed,’ when Hindu women worship Tulsi, they in effect pray for “less and less carbonic acid and more and more oxygen – a perfect object lesson in sanitation, art and religion”. The Tulsi plant is even known to purify or de-pollute the atmosphere. Tulsi used to be a universal remedy in cases of malarial fever.

Medicinal Value of Tulsi:

Apart from religious value, the Tulsi has many medicinal properties making it a sacred plant. Tulsi has been mentioned in Charaka Samhita, an ancient book of ayurveda. It proves that Tulsi has been used in many medicines since thousands of years. Cold, headache, heart disease, stomach infections can be cured by having an extract of Tulsi. It acts as a pain killer. Almost all the ayurvedic cough syrups contain Tulsi as an important ingredient, as it helps in lessening bronchitis. Tulsi reduces blood glucose levels and so is an effective herb for diabetes. Radiation poisoning as well as cataract can also be cured to certain extent by having Tulsi extract. Tulsi acts as a stress reliever by balancing various body processes. It promotes longevity.Tulsi leaves are beneficial for nervous system and help in enhancing memory.Tulsi helps in strengthening kidney. Drink juice of Tulsi leaves mixed in honey for six months in case of renal stones. This will expel these stones through urinary tract. Mouth ulcers and infections can be cured with Tulsi. Tulsi is also very beneficial against insect bites or stings. Drinking juice of Tulsi leaves after every few hours in case of bite is very beneficial. You can also apply Tulsi paste to the affected parts. Owing to immense medicinal value, Tulsi is considered a sacred plant in India.

Home Remedies:

Tulsi can rightly be termed as one of the most commonly and widely used ingredients in many Indian home remedies. From regular fever to some of the deadliest and most fatal bacterial and viral infections – Tulsi can help cure or to some extent, facilitate treating most diseases.  Dr. Simran Saini from New Delhi suggests consuming a drink made by boiling Tulsi leaves and adding about 2grams of black pepper to it. This drink helps in building your immunity, acts as an antibacterial element and facilitates recovery from dengue. The quintessential kadha – a mix of ginger, Tulsi leaves, peppercorn (crushed) in boiling hot water – is usually seen as a potion that can put most illnesses straight. Apart from these there is a bundle of other beneficial properties that this humble plant boasts of, take a look-

How and When to Grow?

Tulsi plant grows in rich and moist soil with ample sunlight. You can begin by planting it just a few centimeters below the soil with a light cover of dirt. Let it grow indoors till it’s about 6-7 inch tall, after which the plant can be transferred outdoors. Tulsi should be planted right before monsoon, under intense heat.

How to Consume?

Consume it raw, plucked fresh from the plant, add it in your tea or make kadha out of it. Apart from the conventional ways of consuming the humble, holy basil, you can experiment with it in your cooking and render an exquisite, earthy, aromatic flavour to your preparations. To begin with, we bring to you one of the most basic and widely loved delicacies prepared using Tulsi leaves.

Why We Should Not Chew Tulsi Leaves:

It is said that Tulsi is a sacred plant and must be grown up in aangan or country yard, watered carefully and worship by the family members. It is discussed above that it has besides religious significance various medical qualities not in ayurveda, but also in herbal & home remedies. It is natural antibiotic. It is also often recommended to start your day by having two to three fresh Tulsi leaves on an empty stomach, as explained earlier. It is a great blood purifier and is known to flush out toxins and clean your internal systems. Along with this comes the advice to not chew Tulsi leaves but instead swallow them.

If we look at it from the religious context, some people believe that chewing Tulsi leaves is disrespectful as Tulsi was also the name of Lord Vishnu’s (one of the three main Gods in Hinduism) wife and therefore, the plant is worshiped and considered sacred. But that’s not all, there is a scientific side to this too which suggests that it is best to swallow Tulsi leaves.

Medically it is not to be chewed because of the fact that it contains mercury & iron, which are released on chewing. These minerals are known to damage the teeth & causes discoloration. The leaves are also slightly acidic in nature and since, the environment in our mouth is alkaline, it may cause the tooth enamel to wear away if consumed regularly in very large quantities. Usually, fresh juice extracted from Tulsi leaves are used as a home remedy for mouth ulcer. But it is still advised to avoid chewing raw Tulsi leaves because it contains mercury & iron, which can lead to tanning of teeth.

In nut shell, the research-based benefits of Tulsi are:

Natural Immunity Booster

Reduces Fever (antipyretic) & Pain(analgesic)

Reduces Cold, Cough & Other Respiratory Disorders

Reduces Stress & Blood Pressure

Anti-cancer properties

Good for Heart Health

Good for Diabetes Patients

Useful in Kidney stones & Gouty Arthritis

Useful in Gastrointestinal Disorders

Good for Skin & Hair

Acts as an Insect Repellent

There are some side effects of consuming Tulsi. These are as follows:

Tulsi may affect the reproductive capacity of women who are trying to conceive.

Some people experience nausea or diarrhoea when they first add Tulsi tea to their diet, so its best to start with small quantities and increase your consumption over time.

Tulsi may lower blood sugar and should be used with caution in people who have diabetes and are on blood-sugar-lowering medication.

Nutritional Value:

Tulsi leaves are rich in vitamins A, C and K and minerals like calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and potassium. It also has a good amount of protein and fibre.

Adding holy basil to your self-care:

Supplements of holy basil extract are available in pill or capsule form. The suggested dosage ranges from 300 mg to 2,000 mg per day for general preventative purposes. When used as a treatment, the recommended dosage is 600 mg to 1,800 mg taken in multiple doses throughout the day. All parts of the plant might be used in supplements and topical ointments. Essential oil of holy basil is distilled from leaves and flowers of the plant.

One can also make holy basil tea using the leaves, flowers, or dried leaf powder. The herb can also be used to make freshly brewed tea by placing 2–3 teaspoons of holy basil in a cup of boiling water and letting it steep for 5–6 minutes. The leaves are also commonly used in cooking, though some people eat the leaves raw. Holy basil tastes spicy and bitter.

In brief Tulsi (Ocimum Sactum / Holy Basil) has religious significance as per ancestral theories and used by our Santan Dharma ancestors, since centuries and also even now besides religious values, it has scientific medical values and benefits too, which are proven by Science.

Therefore, it is in my candid opinion that one should use Tulsi not only because it has religious faith, but also due to good health & other benefits.

In the present circumstances where Covid 19 has disturbed the whole country, everyone is finding it difficult to predict the future course of action. The major cause of concern is financial problem. Many people have lost their jobs, businesses have also suffered a great set back and everyone is worried.  You might find it difficult to accept but let me tell you that this position will be changed and happy days will be back. Although it may not happen within a short while but rest assured October onwards you will find that the things will not deteriorate further and will start improving. From January onwards we may feel some visible positive movement in some sectors.

Actually, what happens when such pandemic like things occur? Everyone stops spending money. We spend very carefully on daily needs only. But even during this pandemic there are people who have earned a lot and you all know that. During such times money circulation gets disturbed and it gets accumulated in a few hands. As the nature of money is to keep flowing and to change hands but during pandemic it remains stuck up at one place for long time and same thing has happened this time also.

In 2007 there was recession all over the world and the public got scared due to which there was shortage of money in market. But that situation changed earlier than predicted. The reason was that we were a developing country. Even today we are developing country and hence, the things will roll out. In simple words, when the gravity of Covid 19 will reduce, those who have earned a lot of money during this tenure will start spending it either for purchasing luxury items to uplift their standard to another level or they will invest the same somewhere else. In any case, it has to come out. As soon as it will come out in circulation, the things will start moving towards normalcy.

Many of them will start new ventures, particularly in view of ban on imports from China, there will be lot of demand for normal goods. This demand will motivate those rich people to invest in new ventures which will create jobs and improve the money circulation. Secondly, with the improvement in conditions, everyone having money will start spending it instead of keeping it in safe custody.

What I forsee is not as bad as we are feeling today. As the Covid 19 fear will reduce, things will take a big turnaround.  So, we need to think positive. Another reason for me to think in this manner is ban on Chinese imports and the Government’s proposal to boost make in India products. Many youngsters have started new ventures even during this pandemic. The number of Companies incorporated during the month of July 2020 is more than last year and it also shows a ray of hope. The need of hour is not to feel demoralize rather to think about encashing the opportunities lying ahead.

Our business community must think about starting or increasing their exports. The domestic demand is to be met by local businessmen as Chinese goods will no longer be available. So, get ready for coming bright future and pass this pandemic time in innovating ideas or thinking about new strategies of marketing. Best of luck to all Indians.

Be good, be safe and be positive.
