RSS Complaint To Election Commission Rahul ‘Hindu Hatred’

In Hinduism on March 14, 2014 at 10:00

The Great Grand son of Mahatma Gandhi had asked Rahul Gandhi to’ shut up and leave Gandhi alone’ in a retort to Rahul Gandhi’s accusation that the RSS killed Mahatma Gandhi, through a Tweet and sharing it in Facebook.

RSS has filed a complaint to the Chief Election Commissioner on Rahul Gandhi’s hate speech against the Hindus.

The copy of the Complaint is below.

RSS files a complaint against Rahul Gandhi for his Hindu Hatred Speech

RSS writes to Election Commission on Rahul Gandhi’s Hindu hatred Speech.

“RSS spokesman Ram Madhav said, “The complainant wishes to point out that the statement by Rahul Gandhi was made deliberately, with ulterior political motive … equating the RSS with BJP and to spread hatred against both in sections of society.”

Charging Rahul with violating the model code of conduct, the RSS demanded “appropriate” action against him. In the contentious speech, Rahul had referred to the RSS and said “… They have killed Gandhiji, today they talk about Gandhiji.” RSS alleged that the unverified statements against it were made in a Muslim-dominated district. “He linked RSS to the BJP, a rival of the Congress,” the complaint reads.

Stressing that the media coverage of the speech by several TV channels and print media was sufficient evidence, the organization argued that such statements were made to spread hatred.

“The complainant submits that Rahul, by making offensive remarks in a predominantly Muslim area, has sent a message to the community that the RSS got Mahatma Gandhi killed. The utterances were clearly aimed at and amounted to an activity which may aggravate differences and create mutual hatred between Hindus and Muslims,” the complaint read.

Madhav, who is member, central executive committee, RSS, said he filed the complaint in Bangalore as all senior RSS functionaries are here in connection with the Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha.

In consumer forum on January 29, 2014 at 18:19

Despite warnings from the Manufacturers and those who are in the know ,people still talk on their Cell Phones, when it is under Charge.

I came across a Photo in Facebook that a Boy had his palm burnt severely in Bombay.

I have seen people speaking on mobile phones while riding.

Pass 2 all your contacts. Today again a boy died in Mumbai,Bcoz of attending a call while his mobile was at charge. That time he had sudden vibration 2 his heart & fingers were burnt. So pls don’t attend calls while charging ur cel. Pls pas this 2 al whom u care. 1 USEFUL MSG IS BETER than MANY jokes..

When you over hear it accidentally, it is usually non sense chatting.

You do not lose  anything  by not attending to a Mobile ring if you are on the move.

Callers must ask the called party if they are on the move and if yes, cut the connection to save Lives.

Fast Page Loading Themes Blogs

In Blogging on December 22, 2013 at 11:53

I have noticed that a slower Page Load affects the Blog Traffic.

If the page of your Blog site is slow, this you can find out by yourself or for details of your page loading time against standard Page Loading time you may check with Quantcast,Woorank ,Alexa or some good Web Analyzing Tools, one of the main reasons is that the Page has too many elements.

One reason is that one uses large images and Videos.

Blog Themes

A WordPress Theme

I am aware that Images and Videos make the posts attractive  and lends crdence to your posts, it is advisable to use medium size images and not to load too many Large images and Videos,.

Ensure that your Home Page Posts do not contain more than 15 % Videos/images %.

I shall be posting on this subject.

In common man’s language the page has many, sometimes unnecessary  elements that make the page load slower.

Many of us, including me, try to include as many Free Widgets as possible in our Home Page.

It could be Traffic Monitors where it provides Visitor Information.Internet defense League, Indiblogger,Blog trophies,Clock and the like.

I have used almost all of them under the mistaken impression it enhances my sites aesthetics and the information provided by these widgets are useful for the reader.

Traffic to blog posts, I have noticed, is because of Content.

What we write, and its usefulness to the reader drives traffic.

And authenticity with sources for the information.

Anything more than this distracts the reader.

People browse, in general,for fast and relevant  information

There are exceptions where people want to pass time.

For this they have a lot of sites including social networking sites like Facebook,Myspace,Tumblr, thought he last one accommodates serious stuff as well.

One has to choose a Theme which has minimum elements  technically yet loads faster.

The Color schemes may have a role in this.

So choose a Theme which has minimum elements and make sure it is attractive.

Check if it loads fast .

For an absolute idiot like me trial and error method is the best.

Try and fix it.

I used tried DePo masthead Theme of WordPress(Free Theme) for a long time.

it was doing quite well.

Suddenly I changed to some colorful Themes,on being told by mu son that my Theme was bland and unattractive.

I have used more than Five themes.

I was content that my blog was looking grand. it did look.

But I have received comments from my readers that colors distract them from reading th content and some colors are irritating (the last point is subjective ,of course)

Surprisingly most laudatory comments were received for the simple DePo masthead Theme, which you are reading now,stating that it is easy to read and the Page . especially the Home Page loads very fast.

Most importantly I have seen an increase of about 25% in Home Page Views, though content wise there has been no shift in my Blog.

Why do not some of you try similar simple themes?

* I am not a Technical man and my suggestions need not be correct.

If some one has more relevant information, they may post either in the comments column, send an email or if it is a detailed one send in their post for publication.

‘Thaali’ Mangal Sutra’ Not A Part OF Vedic Marriage

In Hinduism on December 13, 2013 at 12:57

I have posted some articles on the Samskaras or the Rites of The Hindus and on Hindu marriages.

Yesterday, my brother’s daughter posted a message in Facebook asking me to write on ‘Thaali, Metti’ and their significance in Hindu marriages,

Thali in Tamil and Mangal Sutra in Hindi has no place in Vedic marraiges.

In Vedic marriages marriage has two names Panigrahana and Kanyadaan, handing over and Gifting away the daughter.

Thali

Mangal Sutra,Thaali

 

The steps in the Vedic Marriages are.

  • Vara Satkaarah - Reception of the bridegroom and his kinsmen at the entrance gate of the wedding hall where the officiating priest chants a few mantras and the bride’s mother blesses the groom with rice and trefoil and applies tilak of vermilion and turmeric powder.
    • Madhuparka Ceremony - Reception of the bridegroom at the altar and bestowing of presents by the bride’s father.
    • Kanya Dan - The bride’s father gives away his daughter to the groom amidst the chanting of sacred mantras.
    • Vivah-Homa - The sacred fire ceremony ascertaining that all auspicious undertakings are begun in an atmosphere of purity and spirituality.
    • Pani-Grahan - The groom takes the right hand of the bride in his left hand and accepts her as his lawfully wedded wife.
    • Pratigna-Karan - The couple walk round the fire, the bride leading, and take solemn vows of loyalty, steadfast love and life-long fidelity to each other.
    • Shila Arohan - The mother of the bride assists her to step onto a stone slab and counsels her to prepare herself for a new life.
    • Laja-Homah - Puffed rice offered as oblations into the sacred fire by the bride while keeping the palms of her hands over those of the groom.
    • Parikrama or Pradakshina or Mangal Fera - The couple circles the sacred fire seven times. This aspect of the ceremony legalizes the marriage according to the Hindu Marriage Act as well custom.
    • Saptapadi - Marriage knot symbolized by tying one end of the groom’s scarf with the bride’s dress. Then they take seven steps representing nourishment, strength, prosperity, happiness, progeny, long life and harmony and understanding, respectively.
    • Abhishek - Sprinkling of water, meditating on the sun and the pole star.
    • Anna Praashan - The couple make food offerings into the fire then feed a morsel of food to each other expressing mutual love and affection.
    • Aashirvadah - Benediction by the elders.

The practice of wearing Thaali is from the Tamil Dravidian Culture.

Vedic Marriages are complete with Panigrahana, Kanyadaan and Saptapathi.

Sage Viswamitra’s descendants ,banished to the South(Dravida) mingled with the Tamils and sage Apasthamba included this procedure in Vedic Marriages.

In fact a Neckband was worn by Men to indicate that they are married and women Metti, an ornament around the third toe of the Foot

Cable TV Decline Google Facebook Rise

In internet, lifestyle on November 27, 2013 at 10:06

A  Study has revealed that the local cable TV connections are losing their way to Google and Facebook .

Though the figures are not alarming, it shows a clear pattern of preference to Online TV watching, provided by Google and Facebook.

One reason is the cost of the local cable.

Another is the technology.

The unlimited channels available Online can not be matched by Cable TV.

The quality of the videos are so fine that they can not be matched by the Cable TV.

On the concern side is also the fact that Smart TVs spy on you.

So are the internet sites.

Story:

A recent survey by Wedbush Securities of 2,500 U.S. consumers found 12% had cut premium cable services over the past year, with 7% axing cable altogether. After seeing the trend percolate for several years, market-research firm Parks Associates last December estimated that half a million households had so far cut the cable cord in favor of online-only content.

Now, the prospect of ESPN streaming live sports via Microsoft Corp.’s MSFT -0.77% Xbox 360, the emergence of alternative TV service Sezmi and the recent relaunch of Apple Inc. AAPL +1.84% ‘s Apple TV box could convince people that the cable bill—which has grown nearly 38% on average over the past 10 years—is an expense they can live without.

“There’s evidence this is going to happen,” said Forrester Research FORR -0.49% analyst James McQuivey, adding that data show people watch, on average, an extra half an hour of video a day more than a year ago, with much of this attributable to online video.

Betty Chen, for instance, no longer pays for cable television, but that doesn’t mean she can’t get what she calls her “trashy TV fix.”..

 

TVs being unplugged.

Time Warner Cable, for instance, lost 306,000 TV subscribers in Q3, and 24,000 broadband web subscribers, too.

And Tom Rutledge, CEO of Charter Communications, told Wall Street analysts he was “surprised” that 1.3 million of his 5.5 million customers don’t want TV – just broadband internet. “Our broadband-only growth has been greater than I thought it would be,” he said.

The following charts show the evidence that cable TV is dying, and that people are also unplugging from broadband internet service.
