Corruption means dishonesty by those in power, typically involving bribery. When an elected representative misuses his powers or changes his decision due to certain unfair circumstances it is referred to as corruption. A person who receives or gives bribe is said to be a corrupt person. For example, if a police officer accepts money, he is said to be corrupt. Although we say that India is a democratic country which got freedom 64 years ago, but we are still not free from the hands of corruption. The only difference is that the British have been replaced by the corrupt rulers. Now days, corruption rules us. Corruption is damaging the economy of India badly.
The major problem in India for its present state is corruption. We often blame the government when we see unhygienic circumstances but that is not true. The government is sanctioning financial aids to improve our country but it is not reaching the people because some corrupt officers are swindling it. Every day, in the newspaper we see different scandals and scams.
The government has passed several laws but none of them are being executed because of some corrupt officials who have been appointed by the government to ensure that More >
Two decades ago, Narasimha Rao became Prime Minister and initiated economic reforms that transformed India. The Congress party and other parties do not wish to remember him, but the nation should not forget Mr.Rao as the man who changed economic health of India. In June 1991, India was seen globally as a bottomless pit for extending foreign aid. It had exhausted an IMF loan taken six months earlier and so was desperate. to obtain foreign aid. Nobody imagined that, 20 years later, India would be called an emerging Superpower, backed by the US to join the UN Security Counci and poised to overtake China as the world’s fastest growing economy. P.V Narasimha Rao often referred as the “Father of Indian Economic Reforms” and also referred to as ”Chanakya” for his ability to steer tough economic and political legislation through the parliament at a time when he headed a minority government.
Shri P.V. Narasimha Rao was born on June 28, 1921 at Karimnagar to Rukiminamma and P. Ranga Rao in a traditional Niyogi Brahmin family. He studied in Osmania University, Hyderabad, Bombay University and the Nagpur University. His mother tongue was Telugu and had an excellent grasp on Marathi In addition to eight More >
Cinema goers and critics have been so dazzled by Madhubala’s looks that they often fail to appreciate her immense talent. She had a perfect sense of timing which made her click in lighter roles and she is one of the most beautiful actresses ever to grace Indian silver screen. She survived for a short span of time but kept her mark in the films she had acted in and glorified bollywood films of the 40s, 50s and 60s. A case in point is Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi where she dominates over the three Kumar brothers, Ashok, Kishore and Anoop. There was also a rare spontaneity about her which manifested itself in movies like ”Tarana” and, at the same time, intense poignancy which found expression in the role of the ill-fated Anarkali in ”Mughal-i-Azam”. In both these films she co-starred with the only man she loved, Dilip Kumar. But their romance was doomed like the one they portrayed in K. Asif’s magnum opus, ”Mughal-i-Azam”.
The 1933-born Madhubala started her career as Baby Mumtaz in ”Basant”, when she was merely eight years old.She impressed the film-lovers by creating suspense in her role of ghost in the film” Mahal” opposite Ashok Kumar, in 1947. More >
The Bhagavad Gita,, the greatest devotional book of Hinduism, has long been recognized as one of the world’s spiritual classics and a guide to all on the path of Truth. It is sometimes known as the Song of the Lord or the Gospel of the Lord Shri Krishna. It was composed later than the Vedas and the Upanishads. It is a fragment, part of the sixth book of the epic The Mahabaratha.
The Mahabaratha is the story of the Pandavas, Prince Arjuna and his four brothers, growing up in north India at the court of their uncle, the blind King Dhritarashtra, after the death of their father King Pandu, the previous ruler. There is always great rivalry between the Pandavas and the Kauravas, the one hundred sons of Dhritarashtra. Eventually the old king gives his nephews some land of their own but his eldest son, Duryodhana, defeats Yudhisthira, the eldest Pandava, by cheating at dice, and forces him and his brothers to surrender their land and go into exile for thirteen years. On their return, the old king is unable to persuade his son Duryodhana to restore their heritage and, in spite of efforts at reconciliation by Sanjaya, Dhritarashtra’s charioteer; by Bheeshma, his More >
We have the tendency to interpret and understand history by looking at events through a narrow snapshot in time. At every snapshot, there always invariably is a point where India seems to be riddled with societal, cultural and religious dissensions that cause the nation to crumble from within. Always in these most difficult times, one great leader is born who has the capacity to transform the society and reinvigorate societal and cultural ethos and re-instate dharma to its rightful place. During the period of Alexander’s invasion in India, not only were the small kingdoms divided, but also the social fabric had disintegrated. Meaningless and misinterpreted rituals were rampant and selfishness was dominant. At this critical juncture, one man, single-handedly, vowed to unite the vast country and establish a new dharmic social order and revive India to her rightful position as beacon of knowledge to the entire world. This extraordinarily talented man was none other than Chanakya.
Chanakya was a well known professor at the world-famous Takshasila University . He graduated from the same university in his early youth. He was aware of the corrupt practices of the Nanda king who was the ruler of Pataliputra (present-day Patna, Bihar) in the Magadha kingdom. More >
The association of cinema and politics has got a long history in Southern India. The political landscape of southern states (especially Tamilnadu and Andhra Pradesh) has been significantly altered by actors turned politicians. The Telugu superstars and some other actors are actively associated with the various political parties. They are literally sweeping the media by storm with attractive statements about various issues faced by people of Andhra Pradesh. The people need to realize and understand how many of these actor turned polticians are genuinely working for the sake of state and country development.
Cut to 1970s! The Tamilnadu state was primarily governed by Congress party, which was systematically toppled by the Dravidian moment. It was a significant change for the people of Tamil Nadu, which provided a platform for the film stars to enter into main stream politics. Primarily the Dravidian moment was launched by Periyar in 1925 to restore ‘self respect’ among lower caste people, which formed the lower side of the society. A powerful yet simple medium was required to reach these uneducated, rural and poor people to proliferate the Dravidian ideology. Initially it was people like Karunanithi, who fueled the Dravidian ideology by writing revolutionary thoughts in the form of More >
Six primary orthodox schools of philosophy exist in India. They are – nyaya, vaisheshika, mimamsa, vedanta, sankhya and yoga. At different periods in time, India has produced exceptional scholars who were unconditional masters in these respective schools of thought. It has often been the custom among learned men to debate the merits and demerits of these various systems of philosophy. When one scholar won, typically the other would renounce his philosophy to serve the winner as a disciple. Of course, the disciple’s disciples also became new disciples. One such famous debate took place between the two very renowned scholars – Adi Shankara and Mandana Misra .
During the time of Shankaracharya, the school of Purvamimamsa, which believed in the strict and theoretical observance of rituals, reigned supreme. Shankara realized that unless he was able to win over this powerful rival, his goal of spiritually re-unifying India would remain difficult to fulfill. The foremost proponent of this sect was the great scholar Kumarila Bhatta, who lived in Prayaga itself. When Shankara reached Kumarila’s place he saw a strange and horrific sight. Placed in a courtyard was a huge pyre lighted with slow burning rice-husk. At the center of the flames could More >
Music is an integral part of Indian’s life. Classical music indeed brings peace and harmony to the soul. Musical renditions have the power to lift man from depression into ecstasy, especially when sung with a devotional note. In an earlier post on Hindustani music, we had seen the contribution of the legendary Pandit Bhatkhande in helping to sustain the survival of Hindustani classical music. Hindustani music is to northern India what Karnataka Sangeetam (Carnatic Music) is to South India. Like the former, Carnatic music is also highly systematized. In fact classical Carnatic music is one of the world’s oldest and richest musical traditions. ” Carna” means ear. Carnatic Music means music pleasing to listen to.
In the modern era three musicians had seminal influence on the evolution and popularization of Carnatic music – Saint Tyagaraja, Muthuswamy Dikshitar and Shyama Shastri. They were the Trinity of Carnatic music. They were each prolific composers with unique styles and were contemporaries who lived during the period between 1760 and 1850 in the Kaveri delta of Tamil Nadu. Even today songs written by them constitute an integral part of Carnatic music concerts. This post narrates short anecdotes from each of this trinity’s life.
