report of political parties, it cannot be ascertained<br />

whether the political party has taken any donation in<br />

Act which prohibits the political parties from taking<br />

donations from government companies and foreign<br />

sources.”<br />

Current<br />

“Connectivity with SCO countries is India’s priority and<br />

we totally support it. For the success and approval of the<br />

connectivity initiatives and proposals, sovereignty and<br />

territorial integrity should be respected and inclusivity and<br />

sustainability is essential,” said Prime minister Modi in<br />

the presence of Chinese Premier Xi Jinping. “Terrorism is<br />

one of the biggest violators of human rights and values.<br />

So, coordination between SCO countries is an important<br />

Air India to be privatised<br />

Affairs<br />

The Central government is mulling for<br />

the privitisation of the national carrier<br />

‘Air India’. The Tata group is open to<br />

purchasing stake in Air India, which JRD<br />

Tata launched in 1932. If the talks fructify,<br />

the national carrier’s history may come<br />

full circle. The Tata group is believed to<br />

have held preliminary discussions with the<br />

senior government officials for participating<br />

in the privatisation process. It is not known<br />

whether the talks were held at the behest<br />

of the government or the Tata group.<br />

Face-offs between Chinese and Indian troops over the<br />

Bhutan claimed by China has sparked off the worst crisis<br />

in relations between New Delhi and Beijing. “Even though<br />

India has long had a presence along the Bhutan-China<br />

border, it has never acted in defence of its ally’s interests.<br />

The Chinese are very upset by the Indian assertion and<br />

are seeking to push back against what they see as a line<br />

having been crossed,” a senior Indian official said.

Mizoram has rich and colourful range of handlooms.<br />

Mizo lady’s wardrobe. A Mizo lady is more fond of<br />

her “Puan” than any of her other dresses as the Puan<br />

intricate designs. ‘Puanchei’, this is one of the most<br />

beautiful dresses worn by the Mizo girls. This is worn<br />

on occasions such as weddings and festivals such as<br />

‘Chapchar Kut’ and ‘Pawl Kut’.<br />

Previously, these were all hand<br />

woven but nowadays these are<br />

mostly machine made. They are<br />

made from cotton and the colors<br />

are made by a thing called ‘Ting’.<br />

Along with this, a blouse which is<br />

of the same pattern is usually worn.<br />

Ngotekherh is worn in all festivals<br />

such as ‘Chapchar Kut’, ‘Mim Kut’<br />

and ‘Pawl Kut’. The colours used<br />

in this cloth are black and white.<br />

These are also hand-woven and<br />

are made of cotton. The black<br />

portion of the handloom is made<br />

from some kind of an artificial fur.<br />

Puandum is one of the most<br />

important handlooms of the Mizos.<br />

These are made from cotton and<br />

A Puandum consists of black, red,<br />

yellow and green stripes. Puandum<br />

is an indispensable item which every<br />

girl has to take along with her when<br />

she gets married. It is used to cover<br />

her husband’s body when he dies.<br />

This is an integral part of the Mizo<br />

marriage and failure to bring the<br />

cloth entails punishment leading to a<br />

reduction in the bride price.<br />

Hnika is also worn on the various<br />

festivals. It is one of the finest<br />

handlooms of the Mizos. It is made<br />

from silk and cotton and were all<br />

hand-woven in the olden days, but<br />

nowadays they are all machinemade.<br />

It has its origin among the<br />

Pawi tribe. It is equivalent to the<br />

‘Puanchei’ cloth among the Pawi<br />

tribe. They wear it while performing<br />

the various dances such as Cheraw<br />

and Sarlamkai during the ‘Kut’<br />

festivals. Hmaram is also known<br />

as ‘Kawkpui zikzial’ and are mostly<br />

worn by the children and girls. They<br />

are worn on the occasions such as<br />

‘Chawn Day’, ‘Chhawnghnawh Day’<br />

and ‘Chapchar Kut’.<br />

This is one of the first handlooms<br />

made by the Mizos. They are usually<br />

made of cotton and they are handwoven.<br />

Kawrchei is worn on every<br />

‘kut’ such as ‘Chapchar Kut’, ‘Mim<br />

Kut’ and ‘Pawl Kut’. It is one of the<br />

INDIAN DIASPORA TRADITION<br />

Mal Pharia<br />

Tribe of The<br />

Rajmahal Hills<br />

18<br />

The Mal Pharia or Paharia Mal is a tribal group<br />

concentrated in states of eastern India namely, West<br />

Bengal, Bihar and Orissa. This group is considered to be<br />

a tribe of the Rajmahal Hills, which may be an isolated<br />

branch of the Savars. The Mal Pharia Tribe is known by<br />

different names such as Mal, Maler, etc.<br />

People belonging to Mal Pharia<br />

Tribe have dark complexions. Their<br />

average stature is low and they are<br />

known to be sturdy. The female<br />

Mal Pharia wears sarees, whereas<br />

the male Mal Pharia dresses up in<br />

ordinary cotton cloth. To beautify<br />

themselves they wear ear rings,<br />

anklets and bangles.<br />

People Belonging to Mal Pharia<br />

Tribe have surnames like Singh,<br />

Kumar, Ahri, Ghiri, Manjhi, Pator<br />

and Ghuns. The Mal Pharia Tribe<br />

is known to have a literacy rate of<br />

about 7.59 percent. They use Oriya<br />

language for conversation.<br />

Hunting and gathering is associated<br />

with the people of Mal Pharia<br />

Tribe. Hunting is one of their main<br />

pastimes and also their major<br />

occupation. They use poisoned<br />

arrows for hunting. After killing the<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JULY <strong>2017</strong>


target, the hunters remove<br />

the flesh around the wound.<br />

This is because they hold a<br />

belief that the surrounding<br />

flesh is unfit for consumption.<br />

But they have certain rules<br />

and regulations, which are<br />

to be strictly followed during<br />

hunting.<br />

If a man seeks the help of<br />

other members in order to<br />

find out the animal he has<br />

killed, he has to give one-half<br />

portion of the animal to them.<br />

The headman of the village<br />

is known as Manjhi and he<br />

is entitled to get share of all<br />

the animals killed in hunting.<br />

A person breaking rules and<br />

regulations is subjected to<br />

penalties. Killing a dog will<br />

result in a fine of 12 rupees.<br />

The hunters are also forbidden<br />

by laws to kill a cat and doing<br />

so will result in the person<br />

distributing salt among the<br />

children in the village. He<br />

would give a meager amount<br />

of salt to each child in the said<br />

case.<br />

Their God of hunting is called<br />

Autga and on every successful<br />

expedition they offer their<br />

thanksgiving to Him. Most of<br />

the people of Mal Pharia Tribe<br />

are agricultural labourers,<br />

who engage themselves in<br />

cultivation. They earn their<br />

daily living through basket<br />

making. They also garner<br />

bamboos and raw materials<br />

from forests.<br />

Mal Pharia Tribe considers<br />

themselves seated above<br />

the two other groups<br />

namely, Sauria-Paharia and<br />

Kumarbhag-Paharia, in the<br />

traditional caste hierarchy.<br />

These groups do not engage<br />

in intermarriage. They do not<br />

even accept food from each<br />

other. These groups consider<br />

the Santa impure as they<br />

consume beef.<br />

The Mal Pharia follows similar<br />

customs as the other hill<br />

tribes of the Chota Nagpur.<br />

They have some religious<br />

traditions regarding marriage<br />

ceremonies. Like for instance,<br />

on the day of the marriage the<br />

bridegroom proceeds towards<br />

the house of the bride with<br />

his parents and relatives. The<br />

bride’s parents then make<br />

them seated on cots. After<br />

that the bride’s father places<br />

his daughter’s hand over the<br />

hand of the groom and urges<br />

him to be faithful, loving and<br />

loyal to the bride. Then the<br />

groom puts vermillion on<br />

the forehead of the bride<br />

with his right hand’s little<br />

finger. Again linking his little<br />

finger with the little finger of<br />

bride’s right hand he leads<br />

her towards his home. The<br />

people engage themselves<br />

in dancing and other<br />

recreational activities during<br />

every occasion.<br />

Mal Pharia is known to have<br />

a passion for drinking. It is<br />

under the influence of God<br />

Bacchus that they engage<br />

themselves in merrymaking,<br />

which involves dancing<br />

and drinking. A beverage<br />

associated with Mal Pharia<br />

Tribe is the universal Pachwai.<br />

Pachwai stands for fermented<br />

grain. There is a process<br />

followed to make Pachwai.<br />

Among the grains, Mal<br />

Pharias use either maize or<br />

rice or janera. After the type of<br />

grain is chosen, the selected<br />

one is boiled or spread out on<br />

a mat to cool. They then mix<br />

it with a ferment of vegetables<br />

called takar. The mixer is then<br />

kept in a large earthen vessel<br />

for a few days. Warm water<br />

is also added. It takes a few<br />

hours for fermentation after<br />

which the Pachwai can be<br />

consumed.<br />

Annapurna Mela is known to<br />

be celebrated by Mal Pharia<br />

Tribe.<br />

Tamang<br />

Ethnic tribes<br />

The Tamang or Murmi, are the<br />

indigenous inhabitants of the<br />

Himalayan regions of Nepal and<br />

India, their ancestral land is called<br />

Tamsaling. They are the aborigines<br />

of Yambu, or Kathmandu Valley,<br />

who had self-rule and autonomous<br />

and were systematically displaced<br />

during the expansion period of<br />

Gorkha Kingdom. The traditionally<br />

Buddhist Tamang are the largest<br />

Tibeto-Burman ethnic group within<br />

Nepal.<br />

Tamang are also a significant<br />

minority in Sikkim and<br />

Darjeeling District of West<br />

Bengal of India as permanent<br />

settlers their languages<br />

are fifth most spoken in<br />

Nepal. They were one of the<br />

aborigines who were least<br />

affected by Nepalisation.<br />

Peculiar to Tamang people<br />

have complex marriage<br />

restrictions within the<br />

community.<br />

The religion is considered<br />

by Tamangs as Bon<br />

Lamaism, distinct and<br />

predating Tibetan<br />

Buddhism, and due to<br />

geopolitical focus on Tibet,<br />

Tamangs hold their beliefs<br />

and are largely ignored by<br />

Western scholars. Tamang<br />

have gompas (monasteries)<br />

in every sizeable village.<br />

The Tamangs retain jhankris<br />

(shamans) in addition to their<br />

Lama clan (Tamang) (priests),<br />

the latter whose surnames<br />

are also Lama. Additionally<br />

there exists the honorific<br />

term Lama, assigned to all<br />

Tamang regardless of kinship<br />

clan (swagen bhai). This is<br />

not to be confused with Lama<br />

of Tibet or the Sherpa Lama<br />

surname and clan. These<br />

jhankris perform certain rites<br />

such as trances and sacrifices<br />

to alleviate problems or assure<br />

good fortune.<br />

Tamangs have a system<br />

of six types of societal<br />

leaders: Tamba, Ganba,<br />

Bonbo, Labonbo, Lama and<br />

Choho — to keep the Tamang<br />

society continuously alive<br />

and dynamic. They have their<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JULY <strong>2017</strong>


espective and important roles<br />

to play in the development of<br />

the society. Their priests or<br />

lamas, have a dominant role<br />

in the community and perform<br />

ceremonies for funerals, etc.<br />

Perhaps the most powerful<br />

person in society, is the<br />

shaman, who exorcises<br />

demons and interacts with the<br />

spirit world.<br />

Flags colourfully printed by<br />

Buddhist mantra, holy words<br />

and clothes are put in different<br />

places in the village. Tamang<br />

have a dance called “ Tamang<br />

Selo “ that is performed with<br />

the Damphoo instrument, also<br />

known as Damphoo Dance,<br />

having a brisk movement<br />

and rhythmic beat peculiar<br />

to Tamangs. Dashain is<br />

also approached with much<br />

enthusiasm by Tamangs.<br />

Most Tamangs are farmers,<br />

engaged in agriculture. Due to<br />

Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived<br />

to Portugal on the first leg of his<br />

three-nation tour during which he<br />

had held talks with his Portuguese<br />

counterpart Antonio Costa to boost<br />

bilateral ties.<br />

“Ola Portugal. PM @<br />

external affairs ministry<br />

Modi had said during his<br />

meeting with Costa, that the<br />

two leaders will build on their<br />

recent discussions and review<br />

the progress of various joint<br />

initiatives and decisions.<br />

Portuguese prime minister Costa<br />

tweeted this is an excellent<br />

opportunity to review the<br />

implementation of the accords<br />

agreed during his India visit and<br />

sign new agreements.<br />

The highlight of Modi’s four-day<br />

three-nation visit will be the US<br />

leg as Modi was the meeting<br />

with the President Donald Trump<br />

for the first time on 26 June in<br />

Washington.<br />

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s<br />

bear hugs with US President<br />

Donald Trump were indicative of<br />

positive vibes. That the meetings<br />

went beyond get-to-know<br />

achievement in itself.<br />

STORY FOR KIDS<br />

30<br />

Mahabharatha as a<br />

capsule<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JULY <strong>2017</strong>


In the time of Krishna, the blind King Dhritarastra headed the<br />

lunar dynasty in Hastinapur. His wife, Queen Gandhari, had<br />

one hundred sons called the Kauravas, the eldest of whom<br />

was Duryodhana. Also in the royal palace were Grandfather<br />

Bhisma, the king’s uncle and Queen Kunti and her five sons.<br />

Kunti’s late husband, Pandu, was King Dhritarastra’s brother, so<br />

the Kauravas were her nephews.<br />

Krishna was also Kunti’s<br />

nephew, because her<br />

brother, Vasudeva, was<br />

Krishna’s father. Kunti grew<br />

up away from her family, in<br />

the palace of Kuntibhoja,<br />

her cousin. When she was a<br />

child, Kunti had pleased the<br />

powerful sage Durvasa Muni,<br />

who gave her a mantra that<br />

would allow her to conceive<br />

five sons from the demigods.<br />

She tested the mantra and<br />

the sun god gave her Karna,<br />

whom she secretly set afloat<br />

in a river. Karna grew up to<br />

become a great warrior for<br />

the Kauravas, and Kunti later<br />

revealed that she was his<br />

real mother.<br />

When Kunti married Pandu<br />

she used the mantra to have<br />

three more sons: Yudhistira,<br />

Bhima, and Arjuna. Pandu<br />

was cursed to die if he ever<br />

tried to have sex with his<br />

wives, so he was glad Kunti<br />

could obtain sons from the<br />

demigods. He asked her<br />

to give the last chance to<br />

his other wife Madri, who<br />

subsequently had twins,<br />

Nakula and Sahadev.<br />

These five children were the<br />

Pandava brothers.<br />

Eventually, Pandu attempted<br />

to have sex with Madri and<br />

immediately died from the<br />

curse. Madri killed herself<br />

in the funeral pyre, but<br />

Kunti lived on to care for the<br />

children. She and her sons<br />

moved into the palace of<br />

Dhritarastra, provoking scorn<br />

and jealousy among the<br />

hundred Kauravas. Her son<br />

Bhima caused problems with<br />

the other children, because<br />

he was a bully. In retaliation,<br />

the Kaurava brothers once<br />

tied him up and threw him<br />

in the ocean, but Bhima<br />

returned with added siddhis<br />

(yogic powers), annoying<br />

them all the more.<br />

At this time Grandfather<br />

Bhisma enrolled the<br />

Pandava and Kaurava<br />

brothers in archery training<br />

under the renowned archer,<br />

Drona. At the end of their<br />

lessons, Arjuna ranked<br />

first place in Drona’s tests<br />

and this was another factor<br />

to incite jealousy in the<br />

Kauravas. As a final request<br />

to his students (gurudakshine),<br />

Drona asked<br />

them to arrest a neighboring<br />

king, Drupada, and bring<br />

him there for justice. The<br />

Kauravas failed, but Arjuna<br />

succeeded, increasing the<br />

Pandava’s status.<br />

When their training as<br />

princes ended, Dhritarashtra<br />

acknowledged Yudhistira,<br />

Kunti’s eldest son, as the<br />

heir-apparent to the throne.<br />

Dhritarastra’s move was<br />

an indirect insult to his<br />

eldest son, Duryodhana,<br />

whom he considered a<br />

buffoon. This angered<br />

the Kauravas, moving the<br />

family deeper into conflict<br />

that would eventually<br />

erupt in a devastating war,<br />

which was the basis of the<br />

most fundamental stories<br />

Mahabharata and Bhagavadgita.<br />

Successfully fit people are successful not because of<br />

good luck, birth order or family heritage, but because<br />

they have adopted the right habits. People suggest<br />

that by emulating the habits of successful people,<br />

anyone can enjoy the life he or she desires. Learn the<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JULY <strong>2017</strong>


People suggest that by emulating<br />

the habits of successful people,<br />

anyone can enjoy the life he or<br />

she desires. Learn the habits, adopt<br />

the habits, practice the habits,<br />

enjoy the success.<br />

Here are some tips to have<br />

a successful healthy living:<br />

Stick to the Same “Daily Menu”: It<br />

allows “careful” eaters to predict<br />

their daily calorie allotment. The<br />

most fit among us are entrenched<br />

in habit, including the habit of taste.<br />

Effortlessly fit folks are in tune with<br />

the energy and calorie needs of their<br />

bodies.<br />

Eat Breakfast: People who<br />

successfully lose weight are the<br />

ones that wake up and eat. People<br />

who eat breakfast regularly have<br />

better vitamin and mineral status<br />

and eat fewer calories from fat. The<br />

““<br />

majority of the people who struggle<br />

with overeating are those who undereat<br />

during the first part of the day,<br />

specifically those who skip breakfast.<br />

Breakfast is the most important meal<br />

of the day.<br />

Drink Water: Drinking enough<br />

water is a vital part of any<br />

conditioning program because it<br />

keeps your body functioning in<br />

homeostasis and aids every aspect<br />

of bodily function.<br />

Eat Small And Often: Eating<br />

small meals more often reduces<br />

cortisol levels. When you eat small,<br />

frequent meals long term, the body<br />

becomes efficient at keeping cortisol<br />

levels low, which helps both men<br />

and women reduce belly fat.<br />

Eat Whole Foods First:<br />

Successfully fit people tend to eat<br />

mainly whole, unprocessed foods,<br />

including fruits, veggies, and whole<br />

grains. Eating mostly low-density<br />

foods is the easiest way to keep<br />

your weight in check without feeling<br />

hungry.<br />

“There was a time when<br />

yoga was confined to sages<br />

meditating in the Himalayan<br />

to thousands.<br />

“There are many countries<br />

which don’t know our<br />

language, are not aware<br />

about Indian culture or<br />

traditions but they too are<br />

practising yoga. Much like<br />

it connects the mind with<br />

mental and spiritual benefits<br />

was not for an individual or a<br />

Kudos to Modi<br />

Black money deposits<br />

decline<br />

46<br />

India has slipped to 88th place in terms of money parked by<br />

its citizens with Swiss banks, while the UK remains on the top.<br />

After effect of Modi governments various measures to contain<br />

black money worked out effectively and started showing<br />

results.<br />

The money officially held<br />

by Indians with banks in<br />

Switzerland now accounts for<br />

a meagre 0.04 per cent of the<br />

total funds kept by all foreign<br />

clients in the Swiss banking<br />

system, as per an analysis<br />

of the latest figures compiled<br />

by the SNB (Swiss National<br />

Bank) as on 2016-end.<br />

India was placed at 75th<br />

position in 2015 and at 61st in<br />

the year before that, though<br />

it used to be among top-50<br />

countries in terms of holdings<br />

in Swiss banks till 2007. The<br />

country was ranked highest at<br />

37th place in the year 2004.<br />

The latest data from Zurichbased<br />

SNB comes ahead of a<br />

new framework for automatic<br />

exchange of information<br />

between Switzerland and<br />

India to help check the black<br />

money menace.<br />

There is a view that the<br />

Indians are alleged to have<br />

parked their illicit money<br />

in Swiss banks in the past<br />

may have shifted the funds<br />

to other locations after a<br />

global clampdown began on<br />

the mighty banking secrecy<br />

practices in Switzerland.<br />

Swiss banks have said that<br />

Indians have “few deposits”<br />

in Swiss banks compared to<br />

other global financial hubs<br />

like Singapore and Hong<br />

Kong amid stepped-up efforts<br />

to check the black money<br />

menace.<br />

In terms of individual<br />

countries, the UK accounted<br />

for the largest chunk at about<br />

CHF 359 (over 25 percent) of<br />

the total foreign money with<br />

Swiss banks. The US came<br />

second with nearly CHF 177<br />

billion or about 14 percent.<br />

No other country accounted<br />

for a double-digit percentage<br />

share, while others in the<br />

top-ten included West<br />

conspiracy of 1925 and struggled against the<br />

British imperialism. He was a patriotic poet<br />

and wrote in Hindi and Urdu using the pen<br />

names Ram, Agyat and Bismil.<br />

He became popular with the last name<br />

“Bismil”. He was associated with Arya<br />

Samaj where he got inspiration from<br />

‘Satyarth Prakash’, a book written<br />

by Swami Dayanand Saraswati. He<br />

was having a confidential connection<br />

with Lala Har Dayal through his guru<br />

Swami Somdev, a preacher of Arya<br />

Samaj.<br />

Bismil was one of the founding<br />

members of the revolutionary<br />

organisation Hindustan Republican<br />

Association. Bhagat Singh praised<br />

him as a great poet-writer in Urdu and<br />

Hindi, who had also translated the<br />

As an 18-year-old<br />

student, Bismil<br />

read of the<br />

death sentence<br />

passed on Bhai<br />

Parmanand,<br />

a scholar and<br />

companion of<br />

father’s disapproval and also<br />

had joined the Arya Samaj in<br />

Shahjahanpur.<br />

As an 18-year-old student,<br />

Bismil read of the death<br />

sentence passed on Bhai<br />

Parmanand, a scholar and<br />

companion of Har Dayal. At<br />

that time he was regularly<br />

attending the Arya Samaj<br />

Temple at Shahjahanpur<br />

daily, where Swami Somdev,<br />

a friend of Paramanand,<br />

was staying. Angered by the<br />

sentence, Bismil composed<br />

a poem in Hindi titled Mera<br />

Janm, which he showed<br />

to Somdev. This poem<br />

demonstrated a commitment<br />

to remove the British control<br />

over India.<br />

On 28 January 1918, Bismil<br />

published a pamphlet titled<br />

Deshvasiyon Ke Nam<br />

Sandesh (A Message to<br />

Countrymen), which he<br />

distributed along with his<br />

poem Mainpuri Ki Pratigya<br />

(Vow of Mainpuri). To collect<br />

funds for the party looting<br />

was undertaken on three<br />

occasions in 1918. The<br />

incident is known as the<br />

“Mainpuri Conspiracy”.<br />

On 1 November 1919<br />

the Judiciary Magistrate<br />

of Mainpuri B. S. Chris<br />

announced the judgement<br />

against all accused and<br />

declared Dixit and Bismil as<br />

absconders.<br />

In 1921, Bismil played an<br />

active role in the Congress<br />

with Maulana Hasrat Mohani<br />

and got the most debated<br />

proposal of Poorna Swaraj<br />

passed in the General<br />

Body meeting of Congress.<br />

Mohandas K. Gandhi, was<br />

not in the favour of this<br />

proposal.<br />

In February 1922 some<br />

agitating farmers were<br />

killed in Chauri Chaura<br />

by the police. The police<br />

station of Chauri Chaura<br />

was attacked by the people<br />

and 22 policemen were<br />

burnt alive. Gandhi, without<br />

ascertaining the facts behind<br />

this incident, declared an<br />

immediate stop the nonco-operation<br />

movement.<br />

Bismil and his group of<br />

youths strongly opposed<br />

Gandhi in the Gaya session<br />

of Indian National Congress<br />

(1922). Gandhi refused to<br />

rescind his decision and<br />

then president Chittranjan<br />

Das resigned and the Indian<br />

National Congress was<br />

divided into two groups – the<br />

Naram Dal and the Garam<br />

Dal. In January 1923, the<br />

rich group of party formed<br />

a new Swaraj Party under<br />

the joint leadership of Moti<br />

Lal Nehru and Chittranjan<br />

Das and the youth group<br />

formed a revolutionary party<br />

- Hindustan Republican<br />

Association (HRA) under the<br />

leadership of Bismil.<br />

Bismil executed a<br />

meticulous plan for looting<br />

the government treasury<br />

carried in a train at Kakori,<br />

near Lucknow in U.P. This<br />

historical event happened on<br />

9 August 1925 and is known<br />

as the Kakori conspiracy.<br />

Following 18 months of legal<br />

process, Bismil, Ashfaqulla<br />

Khan, Roshan Singh and<br />

Rajendra Nath Lahiri were<br />

sentenced to death. Bismil<br />

was hanged on 19 December<br />

1927 at Gorakhpur Jail,<br />

Ashfaqulla Khan at the<br />

Faizabad Jail and Roshan<br />

Singh at Naini Allahabad Jail.<br />

Lahiri had been hanged two<br />

INDIAN YOGA<br />

Anantasana<br />

LORD VISHNU POSE<br />

“<br />

The side reclining leg lift pose in yoga, is known as the<br />

‘Vishnu pose’ or Anantasana, is a core-balancing pose that<br />

concentrates mainly on the pelvic region. Regular practice<br />

of this posture helps in toning the abdominal muscles and<br />

strengthens and stretches the sides of the body and the<br />

back of the legs.<br />

54<br />

How to do<br />

“<br />

Lie on the floor on your right.<br />

Press actively through your right<br />

heel, flex the ankle and use the<br />

outside of the foot to stabilize the<br />

position.<br />

Stretch your right arm straight out<br />

along the floor parallel to your torso<br />

so that you create one long line<br />

from the heels to your finger tips.<br />

Bend your right elbow and<br />

support your head in your palm.<br />

Slide the elbow away from your<br />

torso to stretch the armpit.<br />

Externally rotate your left leg so<br />

the toes point toward the ceiling,<br />

then bend and draw the knee<br />

toward your torso.<br />

Reach across the inside of the<br />

leg and take hold of the left big<br />

toe with your index and middle<br />

fingers.<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JULY <strong>2017</strong>


Secure the grip by wrapping the<br />

thumb around the two fingers.<br />

On an inhale, extend the leg up<br />

toward the ceiling.<br />

The raised leg will likely angle<br />

slightly forward, while the top<br />

buttock will drop back.<br />

Firm the sacrum against the pelvis;<br />

this creates a kind of fulcrum that<br />

will help you move the leg slightly<br />

back toward a perpendicular<br />

position.<br />

Press actively through both heels.<br />

Stay in the pose for 30 seconds to 1<br />

minute, then release the leg, take a<br />

few breaths, and roll over onto your<br />

left side.<br />

Repeat for the same length of time.<br />

Benefits:<br />

Anantasana helps in toning the<br />

abdominal muscles.<br />

It stretches and strengthens the<br />

sides of the torso.<br />

It increases the flexibility of the<br />

spine and muscles in the legs.<br />

The hamstrings are stretched and<br />

strengthened, which increases their<br />

efficiency.<br />

It reduces the obesity of the hips<br />

and thighs through the stretching<br />

action.<br />

It promotes better blood circulation<br />

in the leg muscles.<br />

It also helps in the development of<br />

the pelvic region.<br />

It helps prevent problems like hernia<br />

by toning muscles.<br />

It also helps in improving overall<br />

body balance.<br />

Healthy lifestyle<br />

for<br />

teens<br />

56<br />

Now-a-days teens have become freakouts and are<br />

not at all having healthy habits that can provide<br />

healthy lifestyle. Teens feel that they are self<br />

sufficient with health, immunity, good habits and<br />

stamina. But when you see around you can see that<br />

teens are lacking immunity and are fast falling<br />

prey to diseases.<br />

Their stamina is also lacking due to their<br />

unhealthy routines. As a teen, it is important<br />

to remember that the healthy habits you adopt<br />

now will carry with you throughout the rest of<br />

your life. Taking care of your body is important<br />

in maintaining good health long-term.<br />

So what should you do:<br />

Exercise: Regular exercise and good<br />

eating habits are crucial to your health and<br />

well-being. Exercise can include aerobics,<br />

flexibility exercises and strength training. It is<br />

important to find an activity or multiple<br />

activities you enjoy. Consider sports,<br />

weight lifting, aerobics class, swimming,<br />

walking or running.<br />

Healthy Eating: Good eating<br />

habits are important in maintaining a<br />

healthy weight. Eat a variety of foods<br />

and remember that it is okay to have<br />

an occasional treat. Eating at least five<br />

servings of fruits and vegetables each<br />

day, eating foods from all the different<br />

food groups, choosing healthy snacks,<br />

always eating breakfast and avoiding<br />

eating just because you are bored are<br />

Tobacco smells bad and<br />

Sexual Health: If you<br />

have made the decision to<br />

have sex as a teenager, make<br />

wise decisions regarding your<br />

health. To avoid pregnancy<br />

and getting a sexually<br />

RELATIONSHIP<br />

Successful family<br />

Relationships<br />

60<br />

A successful family can be a source of emotional<br />

support, love, security and protection, which makes the<br />

challenges and trials of day-to-day living easier to<br />

face. Children flourish when they feel loved, nurtured<br />

and supported by their parents and siblings. A good<br />

family can even have positive effects on physical and<br />

mental health, including improving blood pressure and<br />

increasing life expectancy.<br />

Good family relationships<br />

have other reasons too:<br />

1. Make children feel secure and loved, which<br />

helps their brains develop<br />

2. Can help to overcome difficulties with<br />

children’s eating, sleeping, learning and<br />

behaviour<br />

3. Make it easier for the family to solve<br />

problems and resolve conflict<br />

4. Help you and your children to respect<br />

differences of opinion as your children<br />

develop more independence<br />

5. Give children the skills they need<br />

to build healthy relationships of their<br />

own.<br />

Make quality time happen in<br />

your family:<br />

1. Use everyday time together to talk<br />

and share a laugh.<br />

2. Have one-on-one chats with<br />

each family member to strengthen<br />

individual relationships.<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JULY <strong>2017</strong>


3. Set aside time with your partner and<br />

explain to your children that it’s good<br />

for your relationship with your partner<br />

to have this quality time together.<br />

4. Do regular, fun things together as a<br />

family.<br />

5. Make decisions together about what<br />

to do for special events like birthdays.<br />

Positive communication ideas<br />

to strengthen your family<br />

relationships:<br />

1. When your child or partner wants to<br />

talk, stop what you’re doing and listen<br />

with full attention.<br />

2. Be open to talking about difficult<br />

things – like admitting to mistakes – and<br />

all kinds of feelings, including anger,<br />

joy, frustration, fear and anxiety.<br />

3. Be ready for spontaneous<br />

conversations.<br />

4. Plan for difficult conversations,<br />

especially with teenagers.<br />

5. Encourage your children and<br />

partner with praise.<br />

encouragement through words and<br />

affection.<br />

Encourage teamwork:<br />

1. Share household chores.<br />

things like family activities, rules and<br />

holidays.<br />

clearly how your family wants to look<br />

after and treat its members.<br />

LOVE & ROMANCE<br />

Tips for a Successful<br />

62<br />

Teenage Romance<br />

Most teenage relationships are normal and<br />

healthy. Once a teenager is in a relationship,<br />

it should continue to be enjoyable. They enjoy<br />

being together, they may be each other’s<br />

confidante, but you should also see your teenager<br />

is continuing to maintain his or her relationships<br />

with other friends and still doing the other things<br />

they were doing before this romantic relationship,<br />

including sports or other interests. In other words,<br />

the romance doesn’t interfere with normal life. It’s<br />

an additional, enjoyable part of life.<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JULY <strong>2017</strong>


In other words,<br />

the romance<br />

doesn’t interfere<br />

with normal<br />

life. It’s an<br />

additional,<br />

enjoyable part<br />

of life.<br />

Here are somethings to<br />

be done for a successful<br />

teenage romance<br />

Don’t forget your existing<br />

friends: Some people will drop<br />

all their friends after they start<br />

dating someone. No one wants<br />

a friend who will throw her over<br />

for someone else, and you still<br />

need a social life outside<br />

your boyfriend or girlfriend.<br />

Be your own person: It’s<br />

natural to share interests<br />

with the person you’re<br />

dating, but you also need to<br />

keep developing an identity<br />

outside of that person, too.<br />

It will improve your selfesteem<br />

and being confident<br />

in yourself makes you more<br />

likely to be confident in your<br />

relationship.<br />

Don’t run away from<br />

problems: If you encounter a<br />

problem in your relationship,<br />

don’t panic. Problems only<br />

get bigger when people<br />

hide from them. Talk about<br />

it together and try to fix it<br />

together. Working through<br />

problems is going to be part of<br />

any good relationship.<br />

Know the difference<br />

between good and bad<br />

conflict: Conflict can even<br />

bring a couple closer together<br />

if they are able to stick to the<br />

rules during a disagreement.<br />

Don’t look squeamish: You<br />

may be feeling awkward<br />

while talking about romantic<br />

relationships to your teen, but<br />

do your best to be comfortable<br />

during any talks. If you look too<br />

worried or negative your teen<br />

may be less likely to come to<br />

you if they want to talk.<br />

is situated on the banks of<br />

Urvashi river. It is believed<br />

that the Chaidnagar<br />

herself from wild animals.<br />

Balban captured the city in<br />

1251 for Nasir ud din Mahmud,<br />

Sultan of Delhi. Sultan<br />

Mahmud I Khilji of Malwa<br />

captured the city in 1438 after<br />

a siege of several months. In<br />

1520 Rana Sanga of Mewar<br />

captured the city and gave<br />

it to Medini Rai, a rebellious<br />

minister of Sultan Mahmud II of<br />

Malwa. The Mughal Emperor<br />

Babur captured the city from<br />

Medini Rai, and in 1540 it was<br />

captured by Sher Shah Suri,<br />

and added to the governorship<br />

of Shujaat Khan.<br />

The Mughal Emperor Akbar<br />

made the city a sarkar in the<br />

subah of Malwa. The Bundela<br />

Rajputs captured the city in<br />

1586, and it was held by Ram<br />

Sab, a son of Raja Madhukar<br />

of Orchha. In 1680 Devi Singh<br />

Bundela was made governor<br />

of the city, and Chanderi<br />

remained in the hands of his<br />

family until it was annexed in<br />

1811 by Jean Baptiste Filose<br />

for the Maratha ruler Daulat<br />

Rao Sindhia of Gwalior.<br />

The city was transferred<br />

to the British in 1844. The<br />

British lost control of the city<br />

during the Revolt of 1857<br />

and the city was recaptured<br />

by Sir Hugh Rose on 14th<br />

March 1858. Richard Harte<br />

Keatinge led the assault,<br />

for which he was awarded<br />

the Victoria Cross. The city<br />

was transferred back to the<br />

Sindhias of Gwalior in 1861,<br />

and became part of Esagarh<br />

District of Gwalior state.<br />

After India’s independence in<br />

1947, Gwalior became part<br />

of the new state of Madhya<br />

Bharat, which was merged<br />

into Madhya Pradesh on 1st<br />

November 1956.<br />

According to Ain-e-Akbari,<br />

the autobiography of Akbar,<br />

Chanderi had 14000 stone<br />

houses and boasted of<br />

384 markets, 360 sapcious<br />

caravan sarais (resting<br />

place) and 12,000 mosques.<br />

INDIAN HISTORY<br />

History of<br />

Mauryan empire<br />

68<br />

After Alexander went back to Babylon in 324 BC,<br />

Chandragupta was able to overthrow the old Aryan<br />

kingdom of Nanda and form a big new empire over all<br />

of northern India and into Afghanistan. When people<br />

asked him how he had done it, he said that he got the<br />

idea from Alexander.<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JULY <strong>2017</strong>


Chandragupta conquered<br />

the Indus valley back<br />

from the Greeks and as<br />

part of the peace treaty<br />

he married the daughter<br />

of Seleucus, who had<br />

succeeded Alexander.<br />

Chanakya<br />

The Nanda King,<br />

Dhanananda, had<br />

by his tyrannical<br />

ways created many<br />

enemies and one of<br />

these, a proud and<br />

fiery man of the high<br />

Brahmin class whom<br />

he had thoughtlessly<br />

insulted in Court, was<br />

to soon enough cause his<br />

ruin. This was Chanakya,<br />

who, under the pseudonym<br />

Kautilya, later wrote<br />

the famous political<br />

book ‘Arthashastra’.<br />

An unforgiving<br />

opponent, he<br />

had vowed not<br />

to tie his hair in<br />

the customary<br />

Brahminical topknot<br />

until he had<br />

avenged his insult.<br />

This didn’t particularly<br />

worry Dhanananda, what<br />

could a single Brahmin do<br />

anyway? He exiled him<br />

from Pataliputra and<br />

considered it the end<br />

of the matter.<br />

Travelling in<br />

exile through the<br />

Vindya mountains<br />

afterwards,<br />

Chanakya met<br />

Chandragupta<br />

Maurya, a young man who<br />

too had deep personal<br />

grudges against the Nandas.<br />

Chandragupta Maurya’s<br />

background is obscure. He<br />

was either the son of a Nanda<br />

prince and a maid-servant<br />

called Mura or came from<br />

the Moriya Tribe of Peacocktamers;<br />

the last might explain<br />

why the Peacock later on<br />

became his principal emblem.<br />

Chandragupta’s spirited<br />

personality impresssed<br />

Chanakya and he decided<br />

that he would make a<br />

far better King than the<br />

oppressive and debauched<br />

Dhanananda.<br />

Together they set about<br />

provoking the people<br />

of Magadha against<br />

Dhanananda and as there<br />

happened to be many<br />

amongst the populace that<br />

Dhanananda had offended<br />

in some way, it was not long<br />

before they had managed to<br />

amass a considerable force.<br />

The new Mauryan Army was<br />

still numerically inferior to<br />

that of Dhanananda, but,<br />

under its inspired leaders,<br />

lacked neither in courage<br />

nor persistence. Which<br />

was just as well as success<br />

came only after many<br />

severe setbacks and also<br />

apparently after Chanakya<br />

overheard a mother telling<br />

her child to eat his hot meal<br />

from the sides inwards.<br />

Taking hint, the Mauryan<br />

Army stopped trying to<br />

seize Pataliputra and began<br />

attacking first the outlying<br />

regions of Magadha instead.<br />

The tide turned in their favor<br />

now.<br />

By 321 B.C. Chandragupta<br />

had succeeded the Nandas<br />

and the long reign of the<br />

Mauryans had begun. The<br />

advent of the Mauryans<br />

brought them into conflict<br />

next with the Greek General<br />

Seleucus I Nicator, who had<br />

inherited both Alexander’s<br />

Asian holdings and his<br />

INDIAN HISTORY<br />

Racked with<br />

guilt, Ashoka<br />

forswore war<br />

and adopted<br />

the tenets of<br />

Buddhism. The<br />

most religious<br />

person, they say,<br />

is the newest<br />

convert, and<br />

Ashoka was no<br />

exception to this.<br />

Empire-building dreams.<br />

These, Chandragupta<br />

shattered in 303 B.C. The<br />

resulting treaty gave the<br />

loser 500 war-elephants<br />

and granted to the victorious<br />

Changragupta the Seleucid<br />

Provinces of Trans-Indus<br />

(Afghanistan), Seleucus’s<br />

daughter Helen in marriage<br />

and the future Court presence<br />

of the Seleucid Ambassador<br />

Megasthenes. The latter’s<br />

fascinating account of his<br />

tenure, ‘Indika’, has survived<br />

in fragments down the<br />

centuries.<br />

Chanakya’s ‘Arthashastra’.<br />

The State owned all the<br />

farms, forests, mines and<br />

industries, maintained a<br />

standing army and efficient<br />

spy system, followed a fair<br />

strict judicial policy and a<br />

free religious one, had trade<br />

and diplomatic relations with<br />

foreign powers like Egypt,<br />

Syria, Rome, Greece, and<br />

China, encouraged art and<br />

culture and patronized the<br />

famous Universities of Taxila<br />

and Pataliputra. The citizens,<br />

in general, were prosperous<br />

and content and remained so<br />

for the next 136 years.<br />

Chandragupta was succeeded<br />

by his son Bindusara who also<br />

proved to be an able ruler and<br />

greatly extended the Empire’s<br />

boundaries. His successor<br />

was Ashoka, who, according<br />

to legend, came to the throne<br />

after a fratricidal struggle<br />

for ascension and seemed<br />

initially atleast to be as much<br />

of an Empire-builder as his<br />

predecessors. However, he<br />

changed tracks after a savage<br />

war with the Kalinga Empire<br />

that took an unprecedented toll<br />

of life and property.<br />

subcontinent and also<br />

abroad. He established treelined<br />

highways, rest-houses,<br />

schools, colleges, even<br />

veterinary clinics, gave alms<br />

to the poor and the sick and<br />

did many other things that<br />

he thought would benefit his<br />

subjects.<br />

He is considered the greatest<br />

of the Mauryan Kings. There<br />

was a downside to all this<br />

unlimited benevolence<br />

though. By choosing<br />

Buddhism over warfare<br />

and rejecting the practical<br />

Arthashastra policies, he<br />

unfortunately weakened the<br />

kingdom for his descendants,<br />

and they, far less capable<br />

men, were unable to cope<br />

with the disintegrating<br />

forces. In 185 B.C., with the<br />

murder of the last Emperor,<br />

Brihadratha, the Mauryan<br />

Empire came to extinct.<br />

Extending from Afghanistan<br />

to Bengal to Mysore, the<br />

Mauryan Empire became<br />

the subcontinent’s first<br />

centralized power and also<br />

its most extraordinarily welladministered<br />

one, guided as<br />

it was by the authoritarian<br />

State-craft philosophy of<br />

this. The rest of his reign was<br />

GSLV Mk III<br />

launched<br />

successfully<br />

The launch of indigenous rocket GSLV Mk III, which<br />

is said to be as heavy as 200 adult elephants, on June<br />

5 had paved the way for India’s first manned mission<br />

as it would make ISRO capable of sending humans<br />

into space. Currently, only three countries—US, Russia<br />

and China—have the capability of launching manned<br />

missions.<br />

TECHNOLOGY<br />

ISRO chairman Kiran Kumar said,<br />

“GSLV Mk III could in principle be used<br />

for manned mission.” GSLV Mk III, also<br />

called Isro’s ‘fat boy’ as it is the country’s<br />

heaviest (weighing 640 tonnes) but<br />

smallest rocket (43 metre), will have a<br />

new and advanced indigenous cryogenic<br />

engine to lift it off to the geostationary<br />

orbit.<br />

ISRO chairman said, “Until we get the<br />

final approval from the government,<br />

Isro won’t work on the manned mission.<br />

Our key priority is to meet the national<br />

demand of providing more number<br />

of satellites into orbits in the field of<br />

communication, remote sensing and<br />

navigation. Therefore, we are focusing<br />

on increasing our launch capacities both<br />

in lower and geostationary orbits and to<br />

make our launches cost-effective.”<br />

About the Launch Vehicle<br />

GSLV Mk III is a three-stage heavy lift<br />

launch vehicle developed by ISRO. The<br />

vehicle has two solid strap-ons, a core<br />

liquid booster and a cryogenic upper<br />

stage.<br />

seconds. During strap-ons functioning<br />

phase, the two clustered Vikas liquid<br />

Engines of L110 liquid core booster<br />

will ignite 114 sec after lift -off to<br />

further augment the thrust of the<br />

vehicle. These two engines continue<br />

to function after the separation of the<br />

strap-ons at about 140 seconds after<br />

lift -off.<br />

The first experimental flight of LVM3,<br />

the LVM3-X/CARE mission lifted<br />

off from Sriharikota on December<br />

18, 2014 and successfully tested<br />

the atmospheric phase of flight.<br />

Crew module Atmospheric Reentry<br />

Experiment was also carried out in this<br />

flight. The module reentered, deployed<br />

its parachutes as planned and<br />

splashed down in the Bay of Bengal.<br />

INDIAN VAASTU CORNER<br />

Vastu<br />

for<br />

COUPLE’S BEDROOM<br />

80<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JULY <strong>2017</strong>


Couple’s bedroom should be such that the ambience<br />

affects in strengthening the relationship created<br />

out of nuptial bonds. Married couple should<br />

have eternal ties and maintain good relationship<br />

Vastu advises to construct bedroom with proper<br />

consideration.<br />

Bedroom is a hub to unwind stress<br />

and carry out different activities<br />

of life and for a couple choosing<br />

bedroom in appropriate direction<br />

is important for many reasons<br />

such as to prevent untimely death<br />

of spouse, bad health, miscarriage<br />

in women, better and early<br />

conception etc.<br />

Couples bedroom should ideally<br />

be located in North-west or South<br />

west portion of house.<br />

Vastu for Couples BedroomNorthwest<br />

is ideal if couple is not elder<br />

in the family while South-west is<br />

most ideal if the couple is elder.<br />

Avoid South-east corner for<br />

couple’s bedroom as it can leads<br />

to frequent clashes and quarrels.<br />

Couples must sleep with their<br />

head towards South and feet in<br />

North.<br />

Do not keep exposed mirror in the<br />

couple’s bedroom.<br />

Television screen, computer<br />

screen and other exposed mirrors<br />

should be veiled when not in use.<br />

in couple’s bedroom because<br />

the electromagnetic rays and<br />

vibrations from electronic objects<br />

create stress and tension.<br />

Any kind or size of mirror should<br />

be shunned in couple’s bedroom<br />

especially in the front of bed and<br />

even at the side of bed.<br />

Fresh flowers should be kept<br />

in couple’s bedroom which<br />

symbolizes blooming of love and<br />

fragrance of flowers help keeping<br />

the relation afresh like always.<br />

Do no install scary or nude<br />

pictures and images in couple’s<br />

bedroom.<br />

Avoid North-east for couple’s<br />

bedroom because this place is<br />

called as Eshaan corner ideal for<br />

worship room and constructing<br />

bedroom can have undesirable<br />

effects on couple’s married life<br />

such as untimely death of spouse,<br />

health diseases and miscarriage<br />

or problem in conceiving.<br />

Couples bedroom can have<br />

light and bright colours on wall<br />

which help to create better<br />

understanding among partners.<br />

If possible, avoid TV and computer<br />

Verse meaning<br />

O best among men [Arjuna],<br />

the person who is not disturbed<br />

by happiness and distress and<br />

is steady in both is certainly<br />

eligible for liberation.<br />

Explanation<br />

Anyone who is steady in his<br />

determination for the advanced<br />

stage of spiritual realization<br />

and can equally tolerate<br />

the onslaughts of distress<br />

and happiness is certainly a<br />

person eligible for liberation.<br />

Rather than attempting to<br />

adopt a technique or remedy<br />

to try to purify the contacts<br />

of the senses with the sense<br />

objects; one should simply<br />

tolerate them as this leads to<br />

prodigious results.<br />

One without attachment to<br />

the senses does not grieve.<br />

Inside one is equipoised and<br />

peaceful. Contrarily by being<br />

attached to the physical body<br />

everything is influenced by<br />

sorrow. The adjective purusa is<br />

used when one is not subject<br />

to sorrow.<br />

Not by the merely being<br />

equipoised and dispelling all<br />

sorrow does one become self<br />

realised; but this indicates the<br />

correct process. When one has<br />

relinquished all conceptions of<br />

being the physical body one<br />

becomes naturally filled with<br />

the spiritual attributes that are<br />

inherent of the soul.<br />

Lord Krishna explains that one<br />

who is performing their natural<br />

duty in life which is prescribed<br />

in the Vedic scriptures<br />

according to their own individual<br />

qualifications, without desiring<br />

any gratification for their<br />

actions; what then can deter this<br />

living entity and cause them to<br />

deviate irresponsibly.<br />

The spiritually intelligent, living<br />

entity, possessing patience,<br />

whom remains equal in<br />

happiness and unhappiness<br />

becomes eligible for immortality,<br />

by which life’s highest goal is<br />

acquired of ones individual<br />

spiritual nature devoid of the<br />

imperfections connected with<br />

the physical body such as of old<br />

age, disease and death.<br />

One India One Tax<br />

Much awaited Goods and Services Tax (GST) was<br />

rolled in the intervening midnight of 30th June<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JULY <strong>2017</strong>


As the clock hit midnight, President<br />

Pranab Mukherjee and Prime<br />

Minister Narendra Modi pressed<br />

the button to mark the beginning<br />

of India’s biggest tax reform ever<br />

- Goods and Services Tax (GST).<br />

The new tax regime embodies the<br />

principle of “one nation, one tax,<br />

one market” and aims to reunite the<br />

economy as one common market.<br />

Addressing the Central Hall of<br />

Parliament, PM Modi said GST<br />

was the combined effort of different<br />

parties and described it as “Good<br />

and Simple Tax”. President Pranab<br />

Mukherjee spoke of his earlier role<br />

as Finance Minister and said the<br />

rollout of GST was a moment of<br />

“personal satisfaction” to him.<br />

Presdient Pranab Mukherjee<br />

congratules GST Council for the<br />

unanimity<br />

“I remain confident that GST was<br />

a matter of time and that it can be<br />

easily passed,” the president says.<br />

“It is remarkable that in the 18<br />

meetings of GST Council so far the<br />

decisions have been taken through<br />

consensus. I congratulate them,”<br />

says the president.<br />

“The Council has pleasantly<br />

surprised everyone of us by<br />

completing its task on time,” he<br />

added.<br />

He also hailed the maturity of the<br />

Indian polity.<br />

“I remain confident that GST was<br />

Behen Hogi Teri<br />

102<br />

Behen Hogi Teri<br />

is a huge misfire<br />

as it lacks an<br />

interesting and<br />

engaging second<br />

half. Though<br />

the lead actors<br />

excel, that alone<br />

cannot save<br />

the film from a<br />

debacle.<br />

Story :<br />

Behen Hogi Teri is all about<br />

Gattu (Rajkumar Rao) who<br />

falls in love with Binny (Shruti<br />

Haasan). The duo stay in the<br />

same neighbourhood and<br />

everyone appeals that the<br />

girls in their locality should be<br />

treated as their own sisters.<br />

In a shocking incident, Gattu<br />

proposes to Binny who never<br />

accepts him neither rejects<br />

him. With number of issues<br />

increasing and binny irritating<br />

Gattu, things change completely.<br />

The rest of Behen Hogi Teri is all<br />

about what happens next.<br />

Analysis :<br />

The first half of Behen Hogi Teri<br />

has been dencent and engaging<br />

with some impressive entertainment<br />

throughout. Rajkumar Rao takes<br />

many episodes to the next level<br />

and some of the interesting scenes<br />

make Behen Hogi Teri decent. Most<br />

of logics have been well written<br />

throughout the first half. The movie<br />

looks natural with many colony<br />

episodes and many interesting<br />

characters coming around. On the<br />

whole the first half of Behen Hogi Teri<br />

has been convincing.<br />

The second half of Behen Hogi Teri<br />

surprisingly makes no impact on<br />

the audience. The major plot has<br />

been sidelined and Behen Hogi Teri<br />

loses the needed grip. After such a<br />

decent first half, the second half gets<br />

hammered after the plot misses the<br />

major logic. After the audience get<br />

irritated completely, the film inches<br />

towards completion. On the whole the<br />

second half of Behen Hogi Teri falls<br />

flat.<br />

Final Word:<br />

Behen Hogi Teri is a huge misfire as<br />

it lacks an interesting and engaging<br />

second half. Though the lead actors<br />

excel, that alone cannot save the film<br />

from a debacle.<br />

Raabta<br />

Analysis :<br />

2/5<br />

Raabta is a film<br />

that fails to stand<br />

balancing with<br />

the cross over<br />

love stories. A film<br />

that can be given<br />

a skip because<br />

of its flaws and<br />

badly written<br />

screenplay.<br />

Story :<br />

Raabta is the story of Shiv<br />

(Sushant Singh Rajput) who<br />

moves to Budapest after which<br />

he falls for Saira (Kriti Sanon)<br />

instantly on the first sight. He<br />

finally convinces and by the<br />

time Saira falls for Shiv, the<br />

third character Zak (Jim Sarbh)<br />

who is a liquor baron. He is fond<br />

of Saira and is obessed with<br />

her after several rejections. It<br />

is during this time Saira starts<br />

thinking about how her bond<br />

with Shiv seems beyond the<br />

transcends of time and decades.<br />

The rest of Raabta is all about<br />

the past and what happens next.<br />

Watch the film to know about<br />

many interesting facts.<br />

Raabta has some interesting<br />

moments and the romantic<br />

episodes which will sure impress<br />

a set of young audience. But this<br />

alone is not enough for a film to<br />

end up impressive. Raabta has<br />

many poorly written episodes and<br />

most of them look fake. Things<br />

change within fraction of seconds<br />

and the film switches a romantic<br />

saga to the deadly Game of<br />

Thrones which is something hard<br />

to digest. The songs have been<br />

decent but the characters have<br />

not been linked good. With many<br />

flaws, the first half of Raabta tries<br />

hard to convince the audience.<br />

At the same time, the second<br />

half of Raabta too suffers huge<br />

lag because of the poor writing<br />

and narration skills. Most of the<br />

episodes have been loosely<br />

executed and looks outdated.<br />

Sushant Singh Rajput seems<br />

hyper active in many of the<br />

episodes and some of the<br />

characters have been utterly<br />

wasted. Jim Sarbh has been<br />

extremely stupendous on screen<br />

but his character has not been<br />

written well. With a poor second<br />

half, Raabta ends up on a dull<br />

note and it completely fails to<br />

impress the audience.<br />

Final Word:<br />

Raabta is a film that fails to stand<br />

balancing with the cross over<br />

love stories. A film that can be<br />

given a skip because of its flaws<br />

and badly written screenplay.<br />

Tubelight<br />

Analysis :<br />

2/5<br />

Tubelight is a film that<br />

can be given a huge<br />

skip as the film fails<br />

in all the available<br />

ways in keeping<br />

the audience<br />

engaging. Salman’s<br />

characterization pulls<br />

down Tubelight by<br />

miles.<br />

Story :<br />

Tubelight is the story of two<br />

brothers Bharat (Sohail Khan)<br />

and Laxman (Salman Khan)<br />

who are orphans. They share a<br />

close bonding with each other<br />

that they live for each other.<br />

Things change completely after<br />

Bharat joins army and heads<br />

for the India – China war. This is<br />

during this time, Laxman misses<br />

his brother badly and starts<br />

his journey for him. The rest of<br />

the film is all about the people<br />

he meets and bonds during<br />

this journey. Watch Tubelight<br />

to know if Laxman meets his<br />

brother Bharat.<br />

The first half of Tubelight<br />

manages to build the characters<br />

of the film. The narration has<br />

been dead slow that it leaves the<br />

audience irritated. Though the<br />

film lacks interesting plot, Kabir<br />

Khan manages to narrate the<br />

film depending on the bonding<br />

between two brothers. Salman<br />

has been showcased in a never<br />

seen dull character which may<br />

not be digested by most of the<br />

audience and his fans. The first<br />

half of Tubelight offers nothing.<br />

The second half which is quite<br />

crucial too manages to stand<br />

dull and makes no impact all<br />

over. The songs look completely<br />

outdated and they test the<br />

patience of the audience. The<br />

unwanted characters kill the<br />

film’s flavour completely and<br />

Tubelight on the whole fails in<br />

all the available ways to impress<br />

the audience. With a routine and<br />

predictable climax, Tubelight<br />

second half is a massive<br />

disappointment.<br />

Final Word:<br />

Tubelight is a film that can be<br />

given a huge skip as the film<br />

fails in all the available ways in<br />

keeping the audience engaging.<br />

Salman’s characterization pulls<br />

down Tubelight by miles.<br />

DJ- Duvvada Jagannadham<br />

3/5<br />

Duvvada<br />

Jagannadham<br />

has a rountine<br />

plot and decent<br />

execution<br />

throughout which<br />

makes the film<br />

passable. Allu<br />

Arjun tops the<br />

show.<br />

Story :<br />

Duvvada Jagannadham is the<br />

story of Jagannadha Sastry<br />

(Allu Arjun) who hails from<br />

a Brahmin family residing in<br />

Vijayawada. An unexpected<br />

incident shatters him after<br />

which he turns DJ. The rest<br />

of the film is all about DJ<br />

and about his sacrifice for<br />

his family. He falls in love<br />

with Pooja (Pooja Hegde)<br />

and Duvvada Jagannadham<br />

narrates how DJ wins his love<br />

for Pooja. Watch the film to<br />

know about the rest.<br />

Analysis :<br />

Duvvada Jagannadham<br />

has no interesting plot and<br />

Harish Shankar tried out his<br />

best to elevate the character<br />

of Allu Arjun showcasing<br />

him as a Brahmin. Except<br />

some interesting episodes,<br />

Duvvada Jagannadham<br />

looks completely predictable<br />

and outdated. The dose of<br />

Brahmin accent and the<br />

presentation of Allu Arjun<br />

irritates the audience to the<br />

core.<br />

Some of the catchy dialogues<br />

have been repeated number<br />

of times that they make no<br />

impact on the audience. The<br />

songs too look pretty average<br />

though lavish sets have been<br />

erected for the film. The preclimax<br />

action episode has<br />

been shot well and the climax<br />

looks ok. On the whole,<br />

Duvvada Jagannadham<br />

fails in all the available<br />

ways in emerging out as a<br />

blockbuster.<br />

Final Word:<br />

Duvvada Jagannadham has<br />

a rountine plot and decent<br />

execution throughout which<br />

makes the film passable. Allu<br />

Marakathamani<br />

Analysis :<br />

2.5/5<br />

Marakathamani<br />

is one film which<br />

has an interesting<br />

plot but it is the<br />

poor narration<br />

and writing skills<br />

which kill the<br />

film’s flavour.<br />

Aadi excels in his<br />

assigned role.<br />

Story :<br />

Marakathamani is all about an<br />

ancient diamond with the same<br />

name. All those who plan to<br />

steal the precious stone get<br />

killed in mysterious situations.<br />

It is during this time Aadi (Aadi<br />

Pinisetty), a small thief starts<br />

hunting for Marakathamani.<br />

With the support of a priest, he<br />

takes the support of some evil<br />

spirits to stay alive. The rest of<br />

Marakathamani is all about the<br />

process of Aadi’s journey with<br />

Marakathamani. Watch the film<br />

to know about many interesting<br />

facts.<br />

The first half of Marakathamani<br />

starts on a slow note and it<br />

takes much time for the real<br />

plot to be unveiled. Though the<br />

entertainment has been decent,<br />

the film has many unwanted<br />

episodes will kill the curiosity<br />

among the audience. It is during<br />

the interval, the major plot gets<br />

unfolded and it turns interesting.<br />

Aadi leads the show with his<br />

flawless performance and the<br />

love story looks fresh.<br />

The second half of<br />

Marakathamani too has many<br />

unwanted episodes. The major<br />

plot has been kept aside for<br />

most of the time and the most<br />

interesting episodes have been<br />

hurried up. The pre-climax<br />

episodes look promising and by<br />

the time the film turns interesting<br />

again, the climax inches. The<br />

villain’s thread looks completely<br />

silly which kills the film’s flavour<br />

completely.<br />

Final Word:<br />

Marakathamani is one film which<br />

has an interesting plot but it is the<br />

poor narration and writing skills<br />

which kill the film’s flavour. Aadi<br />

buzzes with activity. There will be numerous<br />

conversations. Some take a nostalgic turn.<br />

Watch out for confrontations with family<br />

members. Use inborn Taurean energy to<br />

remain stable.<br />

CANCER<br />

Happy Birthday, you tender, caring,<br />

nurturing crustaceans! Your new<br />

astrological year begins with<br />

Saturn still teaching you to look inward for<br />

honest self-evaluation in order to deal with<br />

shortcomings and weaknesses. Partnership/<br />

relationship issues may be revealed on<br />

the 2nd. Pay attention this month to what<br />

you value in life – materially, intellectually,<br />

and spiritually. Negotiations with others<br />

concerning money or property may begin.<br />

GEMINI<br />

Finances/personal values undergo<br />

change. You’ve been concentrating on<br />

wealth, possessions, and self-worth for<br />

a while. What’s really important to you?<br />

Communications in your daily environment<br />

increase dramatically. That’s one of your inborn<br />

talents! Tempo of daily life accelerates. Ensure<br />

the power of your words doesn’t become a<br />

destructive weapon. Venus continues to transit<br />

your solar birth sign since April.<br />

LEO<br />

Do you dynamic lions feel as though<br />

you’ve been in a fog? It begins to<br />

clear by mid month. Then you’ll have<br />

a lot to communicate. Make use of<br />

that extra burst of energy as Mars continues<br />

transiting your birth sign until August 10th. It will<br />

be about 22 months before you get that extra<br />

burst again. Be careful not to roar too loudly!<br />

Activities with groups and with friends are<br />

increased this month.<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JULY <strong>2017</strong>


VIRGO<br />

Practical, detailed and conscientious – that’s how you’ll operate in your group activities<br />

and in pursuing your goals and ambitions. People you associate with are a reflection<br />

of yourself. You’re still being asked to consider whether they deserve you or whether<br />

you must move on. Your ultimate life vision is still being restructured. Meditation helps open<br />

your mind to higher visions and calms edginess that’s hard to pin down.<br />

LIBRA<br />

You’ve been quite expressive these<br />

past few months as your ruling planet<br />

has been in Gemini for an extended<br />

stay. Foreigners may be playing a key role.<br />

Consciousness-expanding experiences<br />

broaden your vision and provide personal<br />

growth through some Venusian endeavor.<br />

Your personal stage is highlighted. Personal<br />

reputation becomes public.<br />

SCORPIO<br />

Use your inborn need for<br />

deep involvement and intense<br />

transformations to help expand<br />

your personal horizons through metaphysical,<br />

religious, or spiritual pursuits. A new course<br />

of study helps advance your career. You’re<br />

still in a period of searching for the meaning<br />

of life. A good month for travel. Communicate<br />

what you need in your professional life.<br />

SAGITTARIUS<br />

There is a lot of intensity in your<br />

normally open and light-hearted<br />

world. You’re still learning the<br />

limitations of your own resources and how<br />

much you need to cooperate with and how<br />

much you depend on others. New courses<br />

of study not only broaden your scope of life<br />

but they might awaken something deep in<br />

your soul. Partnership/relationship issues<br />

continue to progress smoothly. Some may<br />

finally decide to get married.<br />

CAPRICORN<br />

Partnership/relationship issues<br />

continue needing to be addressed.<br />

Saturn still transits your chart’s sector<br />

requiring analysis of commitments<br />

and expectations in your relationships. Look<br />

inward. Reflect on deep psychological truths.<br />

Get in touch with hidden aspects of yourself.<br />

Expect intense and profound conversations.<br />

A good month for research and investigation.<br />

Work related matters/ employee relationships<br />

continue smoothly.<br />

AQUARIUS<br />

Your innovation and originality is<br />

being drawn upon at work or in your<br />

everyday service. You’re still in a<br />

period of learning the value of daily work and<br />

service, and of keeping your body functioning<br />

in a healthy manner. Communication flows in a<br />

creative fashion in partnerships/relationships.<br />

People may enter your life that uncannily<br />

resemble and act like others you know.<br />

PISCES<br />

Summertime is when you are<br />

drawn most to romance, creativity<br />

and pleasure. You’ve been in<br />

an extended period of exploring<br />

personal creativity and self-expression. The<br />

purpose of your existence is one of your<br />

biggest concerns. Communications abound at<br />

work or within areas of personal service. The<br />

pace of your daily rhythm accelerates.<br />
