CURRENT AFFAIRS<br />

PM announces demonetisation<br />

The demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000<br />

banknotes was a policy enacted by the Government<br />

of India on 8 November <strong>2016</strong>. All Rs 500 and Rs<br />

1000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi Series<br />

ceased to be legal tender in India from 9 November<br />

<strong>2016</strong>. The announcement was made by the Prime<br />

Minister Narendra Modi in an unscheduled live<br />

televised address at 20:15 on 8 November. In the<br />

announcement, Modi declared that use of all Rs 500<br />

and Rs 1000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi<br />

Series would be invalid from midnight of the same<br />

day and announced the issuance of new Rs 500 and<br />

Rs 2000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi New<br />

Series in exchange for the old banknotes.<br />

Oppositions Bharath Bandh on 28<br />

November flopped<br />

Showing their disagreement over the demonetisation<br />

drive imposed by the central government, the<br />

opposition parties have called for a nationwide<br />

strike (Bharat Bandh) on November 28. During the<br />

Rajya Sabha session, the opposition party attacked<br />

the central government over demonetisation of Rs<br />

500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes calling it to be an<br />

impractical move.<br />

As the left sponsored bharath Bandh has flopped,<br />

its leader Bimen bose said, “There is no point<br />

claiming that the bandh was entirely successful,<br />

it was successful only in some pockets. We took<br />

the decision on November 25 evening, there was<br />

hardly any time to campaign for the bandh. None<br />

of the trade union leaders were present in the city<br />

to spread awareness, so, it was not very effective.<br />

Also, we think people still believe that Modi’s<br />

decision of demonetisation will help unearth black<br />

money, but they don’t realise that the money is<br />

mostly overseas.”


New BJP Presidents in Delhi and<br />

Bihar<br />

BJP chief Amit Shah has appointed party MPs<br />

Manoj Tiwari and Nityanand Rai as party’s Delhi<br />

and Bihar unit presidents respectively. While<br />

Tiwari replaces Satish Upadhyay, Rai replaces<br />

Mangal Pandey. Manoj Tiwari represents Northeast<br />

Delhi constituency while Rai represents Ujiarpur<br />

constituency of Bihar in the Lok Sabha.<br />

Terrorist attack at Nagrota Army<br />

camp<br />

Three heavily-armed terrorists killed by security forces<br />

during an encounter inside an army unit at Nagrota<br />

appear to be part of a group which recently sneaked<br />

into the Indian territory from Pakistan. Though there<br />

has been no official word from the army so far,<br />

sources said this was indicative from the seizure of<br />

a number of Pakistan-made items including eatables<br />

and medicines apart from arms, ammunition and<br />

explosives from the slain terrorists. Seven army men<br />

including two officers were killed when three fidayeens<br />

in police uniform stormed inside the premises of 166<br />

Medium Regiment unit.and many other communities<br />

who were persecuted by the then Mysuru ruler.


CURRENT AFFAIRS<br />

National anthem to be played in movie<br />

theatres - Supreme court<br />

The Supreme Court has ordered that all cinema halls<br />

across the country should play the national anthem<br />

before the screening of films and that all present must<br />

“stand up in respect” till the anthem is ended. It said<br />

the practice would “instill a feeling within one a sense<br />

of committed patriotism and nationalism.” Cinema halls<br />

should also display the national flag on screen when<br />

the anthem is played, it said.<br />

“People must feel this is my country. This is my<br />

motherland... Arrey, who are you? You are an Indian<br />

first. In other countries, you respect their restrictions.<br />

In India, you do not want any restrictions?” Justice<br />

Misra remarked. ...people should feel that they live in<br />

a nation and show respect to the national anthem and<br />

the national flag,” Justice Misra said.<br />

Manohar Parrikar in Bangladesh<br />

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar is in Dhaka<br />

on a two-day visit to Bangladesh during which he<br />

INDIAN DIASPORA FINE ART<br />

Jamdani<br />

The finest muslin textile<br />

From Bengal<br />

14<br />

Jamdani is one of the finest muslin textiles from<br />

Bengal, produced in the Dhaka District, Bangladesh<br />

for centuries. The historic production of jamdani<br />

was patronized by imperial warrants of the Mughal<br />

emperors. Under British colonialism, the Bengali<br />

jamdani and muslin industries rapidly declined<br />

due to colonial import policies favoring industrially<br />

manufactured textiles.<br />

The traditional art of weaving<br />

jamdani has been declared by<br />

UNESCO as a Intangible Cultural<br />

Heritage of Humanity. Jamdani<br />

was originally known as Dhakai<br />

named after the city of Dhaka. The<br />

term Jamdani is Persian, deriving<br />

from ‘Jam’, meaning flower and<br />

‘Dani’, a vase or a container,<br />

named after decorative floral<br />

patterns found on Dhakai textile.<br />

Jamdanis are popularly known as<br />

Dhakai Jamdani or simply Dhakai.<br />

The earliest mention of origin of<br />

Jamdani and its development as<br />

an industry is found in Kautilya’s<br />

Arthashastra at about 3rd century<br />

BC, where it is stated that this<br />

fine cloth was used in Bangla and<br />

Jamdani is a handloom<br />

woven fabric made up of<br />

cotton, which was referred<br />

to as muslin. Jamdani’s<br />

weaving tradition is of<br />

Bengali origin. It is one of the<br />

most time and labor-intensive<br />

forms of handloom weaving.<br />

It is undoubtedly one of the<br />

best varieties of finest muslin.<br />

It has been the most artistic<br />

textile of the Bangladeshi<br />

weaver. Traditionally woven<br />

around Dhaka and created<br />

on the loom brocade,<br />

jamdani is fabulously rich in<br />

motifs.<br />

to float on a shimmering<br />

surface. In this weaving<br />

technique, the pattern is not<br />

sketched or outlined on the<br />

fabric. Instead, it is drawn on<br />

a graph paper and placed<br />

underneath the warp.<br />

Jamdani is a fine muslin cloth<br />

on which decorative motifs<br />

are woven on the loom,<br />

typically in Grey and white.<br />

Often a mixture of cotton<br />

and gold thread were also<br />

used. Jamdani is a fusion<br />

of the ancient cloth-making<br />

techniques of Bengal with the<br />

muslin produced by Bengali<br />

Muslims since the 14th<br />

century. Jamdani is the most<br />

expensive product of Dhaka<br />

looms since it requires the<br />

most lengthy and dedicated<br />

work.<br />

Jamdani is woven in<br />

a supplementary weft<br />

technique, where the artistic<br />

motifs are produced by<br />

a non-structural weft, in<br />

addition to the standard weft<br />

that holds the warp threads<br />

together. The standard weft<br />

creates a fine, sheer fabric<br />

while the supplementary weft<br />

with thicker threads adds the<br />

intricate patterns to it.<br />

Each supplementary weft<br />

motif is added separately by<br />

hand by interlacing the weft<br />

threads into the warp with<br />

fine bamboo sticks using<br />

individual spools of thread.<br />

The result is a myriad of<br />

vibrant patterns that appear<br />

The Santhal or Saontal, are<br />

a scheduled tribe of people<br />

indigenous to Terai of Nepal and<br />

India, who lives in the Indian<br />

States of Jharkhand, West Bengal,<br />

Bihar, Odisha and Assam. There is<br />

a significant Santhal minority<br />

in neighboring Bangladesh and a<br />

small population in Nepal .<br />

They are one of the largest<br />

tribal communities in India.<br />

The Santhals mostly speak<br />

Santali, a member of the<br />

Munda language family.<br />

Chadar Badar, a form<br />

of pupetry known also<br />

as Santhal puppetry, is<br />

a folk show involving<br />

wooden puppets placed<br />

in a small cage which acts<br />

as the stage. The Santal<br />

traditionally accompany<br />

many of their dances with<br />

two drums: the Tamak‘ and<br />

the Tumdak’. The Santhals<br />

worship Marang buru, or<br />

Bonga, as the Supreme<br />

Deity.<br />

Chacho Chatiar is a very<br />

important ceremony of<br />

or cremated.<br />

In the Santhal community,<br />

younger ones always respect<br />

their elders and bow to them<br />

whenever they meet. In return<br />

the elders show love and<br />

care by assuring them of the<br />

blessings. Whenever a new<br />

member or relative comes to<br />

the family, he is welcomed<br />

first. Then he is asked to sit<br />

and thereafter his feet are<br />

washed. The relatives are not<br />

allowed to go without having<br />

food.<br />

One of the most important<br />

and distinctive symbol that<br />

characterizes this community<br />

is the bow and arrow. Apart<br />

from using it for hunting, they<br />

use it during various rituals,<br />

festivals and celebrations.<br />

During the ceremonial<br />

cleansing after birth, the arrow<br />

is used by the midwife. In<br />

ancient times the umbilical<br />

cord of a new born baby was<br />

cut with the sharp edge of an<br />

arrow and the same arrow was<br />

placed vertically on the head<br />

side of the baby.<br />

The tradition of hunting has<br />

been there among Santhals<br />

since time immemorial.<br />

Santhals have great ability to<br />

locate animals by looking at<br />

the caves or forest. They even<br />

have the ability to bring home<br />

the animals and birds alive<br />

the hunters come home, the<br />

Sabarimala Sree Ayyappa Temple is one of the<br />

most ancient and prominent Sastha temples<br />

in the country. Located in the Western Ghat<br />

mountain ranges of Pathanamthitta district<br />

in Kerala, Sabarimala Sri Dharmasastha<br />

Temple is one of the few Hindu temples in<br />

India that is open to all faiths.<br />

The shrine of Sabarimala is one<br />

of the most remote shrines in<br />

southern India yet it still draws<br />

three to four million pilgrims each<br />

year.<br />

The shrine at Sabarimala is an<br />

ancient temple of Ayyappan<br />

also known as Sasta and<br />

Dharmasasta. In the 12th<br />

century, Manikandan, a prince of<br />

Pandalam dynasty, meditated at<br />

Sabarimala temple and became<br />

one with the divine. Manikandan<br />

STORY FOR KIDS<br />

30<br />

Naming ceremony<br />

of<br />

little Krishna and Balarama<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | DECEMBER <strong>2016</strong>


The family priest of the Yadus was sage Garga.<br />

Nanda felt that his children should be named by sage<br />

Garga. So he requested sage Garga to visit Gokula<br />

and name the children. Accordingly sage Garga<br />

arrived in Gokula. Nanda and Yasoda received him<br />

with great joy and reverence.<br />

All the people of Gokula<br />

came and prostrated before<br />

him. Nanda requested<br />

him to perform the naming<br />

ceremony for his two sons.<br />

Garga also had a purpose in<br />

coming to this place. So he<br />

immediately agreed. But he<br />

suggested that the ceremony<br />

should be performed without<br />

much pomp. Otherwise, it<br />

might draw the attention<br />

of Kamsa. If Kamsa came<br />

to know that sage Garga<br />

had performed the naming<br />

ceremony, he would think<br />

that the children must be of<br />

some importance and he<br />

would try to kill them.<br />

Nanda agreed with sage<br />

Garga’s suggestion. Sage<br />

Garga performed all the<br />

rites in a simple way and<br />

told Nanda in private, “This<br />

Rohini’s child charms<br />

everyone with his beauty. He<br />

will delight his friends and<br />

relatives by his virtues. So<br />

we shall name him ‘Rama’.<br />

And because he will manifest<br />

extraordinary bodily strength,<br />

he will also be known as<br />

‘Bala’ . So he will be called<br />

Balarama.<br />

Moreover, because he unites<br />

two families, Vasudeva’s<br />

family and Nanda’s family,<br />

he will be known also as<br />

‘Sankarshana’.<br />

”The younger boy is God<br />

incarnate. As he has a dark<br />

complexion, we shall name<br />

him Krishna. Since his<br />

father’s name is Vasudeva,<br />

he will be known as<br />

Vasudeva. This child, who is<br />

a source of joy to you and all<br />

others in Gokula, will bring<br />

you great good fortune. Look<br />

after him with all attention.”<br />

After completing the<br />

ceremony and blessing all of<br />

them, sage Garga departed<br />

for his own home. Nanda<br />

and Yasoda were highly<br />

pleased and felt blessed.<br />

The very common and true saying ‘Health<br />

is Wealth’ is not just a myth. We should<br />

always keep in mind that health is the<br />

greatest wealth in this world.<br />

We should motivate our kids<br />

and children to know about this<br />

common saying. The importance<br />

of health is to be imparted at an<br />

early age, so that they grow up<br />

practising a healthy regime.<br />

Good health is the most<br />

important part of our life, without<br />

which we are incomplete and<br />

living unhealthy life is stressful<br />

living. Good health is really better<br />

than wealth and other things in<br />

this whole world. It is as true as<br />

our life that good health keeps<br />

us always happy and gives us<br />

a feeling of complete physical,<br />

mental, social and intellectual<br />

well-being.<br />

Good health keeps us away<br />

from the diseases and health<br />

disorders. The loss of good<br />

health causes loss of all the<br />

happiness. Good health helps<br />

us to live a good, balanced<br />

and healthy life. Our good<br />

health needs several things to<br />

get done on a daily basis. We<br />

need fresh air, clean water,<br />

proper sunlight, balanced diet,<br />

NRI IMMIGRATION<br />

UK announces<br />

42<br />

new visa crackdown<br />

The UK government has announced changes to its visa policy<br />

for non-EU nationals, which will affect a large number of<br />

Indians especially from the IT sector.<br />

The new visa rules announced by<br />

the Home Office, says that anyone<br />

applying after November 24 under<br />

the Tier 2 intra-company transfer<br />

(ICT) category would be required<br />

to meet a higher salary threshold<br />

requirement of 30,000 pounds from<br />

the earlier 20,800 pounds.<br />

The ICT route is mainly used by<br />

the Indian IT companies in Britain<br />

and the UK’s Migration Advisory<br />

Committee (MAC) had found that<br />

Indian IT workers are accounted for<br />

nearly 90 percent of visas issued<br />

under this route.<br />

“The first of two phases of changes<br />

to Tier 2, announced by the<br />

government in March following<br />

a review by the Independent<br />

Migration Advisory Committee,<br />

will affect applications made on or<br />

after November 24 unless stated<br />

of visas issued<br />

under this route.<br />

otherwise,” a Home Office<br />

statement said.<br />

Other than the Tier 2 ICT<br />

salary threshold hike, the<br />

other changes include<br />

increasing the Tier 2<br />

(General) salary threshold<br />

for experienced workers to<br />

25,000 pounds, with some<br />

exemptions; reducing the<br />

Tier 2 (ICT) graduate trainee<br />

salary threshold to 23,000<br />

pounds and increasing the<br />

number of places to 20<br />

per company per year and<br />

closing the Tier 2 (ICT) skills<br />

transfer sub-category.<br />

“Immigration is not serving<br />

to increase the incentive to<br />

employers to train and upskill<br />

the UK workforce. Ready<br />

access to a pool of skilled IT<br />

professionals in India is an<br />

example of this,” the MAC<br />

report had said in its findings.<br />

workers. Indeed, partners<br />

told us that India currently<br />

in training IT workers and in<br />

concluded.<br />

“The UK government’s<br />

reforms to Tier 2 work visas<br />

are intended to ensure<br />

that businesses are able<br />

to attract the skilled people<br />

they need, but also see<br />

that they get far better at<br />

recruiting and training UK<br />

workers first,” then UK<br />

Immigration minister James<br />

Brokenshire had said.<br />

“We did not see any<br />

substantive evidence of<br />

long-standing reciprocal<br />

arrangements, whereby<br />

UK staff are given the<br />

opportunity to gain skills,<br />

training and experience from<br />

working in India,” it noted.<br />

“They have developed a<br />

delivery model, whereby<br />

significant elements of<br />

projects are delivered<br />

offshore in India, taking<br />

British Prime Minister<br />

Theresa May’s<br />

first visit to India<br />

50<br />

British Prime Minister Theresa May arrived in<br />

Delhi on 6 November evening on a three-day visit<br />

to India. This is her first bilateral engagement<br />

outside Europe after taking office in July. The<br />

60-year-old British Prime Minister’s visit is<br />

aimed at enhancing Indo-UK ties in the key areas<br />

such as trade, investment, defence and security.<br />

Ms May is being<br />

accompanied by 40<br />

business delegates from<br />

UK companies which will<br />

showcase itself at the Tech<br />

Summit in Delhi.<br />

“Both PMs will have a<br />

number of issues to discuss<br />

and clearly PM Modi will<br />

want to know the impact<br />

of Brexit may have on<br />

India. These are early days<br />

but I can tell you that this<br />

indicates that Britain wants<br />

to forge a stronger, fruitful<br />

and prosperous relationship<br />

than ever with India”, said<br />

Shailesh Vara, Conservative<br />

MP in the UK.<br />

“If anything, I see further<br />

tightening of visa rules. Free<br />

Trade Deal with India will be<br />

tough because I see India<br />

then automatically asking<br />

for liberalisation of visas as<br />

a quid pro quo. I think trade<br />

with India will be difficult in<br />

the years to come because<br />

of the new centrality over<br />

immigration.” said political<br />

analyst, Professor Anand<br />

Menon of King’s College<br />

London.<br />

“We will be promoting the<br />

best of Britain, sending<br />

out the message that we<br />

are open for business,<br />

and making the most of<br />

the opportunities offered<br />

by Brexit as the world’s<br />

foremost champion of<br />

free trade,” Before leaving<br />

London, Ms May had said.<br />

“Free trade creates a rising<br />

tide that lifts all boats,” she<br />

said. “It makes us all richer. It<br />

creates jobs.”<br />

“The U.K. will consider<br />

further improvements to<br />

our visa offer if at the same<br />

time we can step up the<br />

speed and volume of returns<br />

of Indians with no right to<br />

remain in the U.K.,” she said.<br />

“We must therefore<br />

encourage greater mobility<br />

and participation of young<br />

people in education and<br />

research opportunities,” she<br />

said.<br />

IN BUSINESS<br />

After effects<br />

of<br />

Demonetisation<br />

Demonetisation has put a limit in the transfer of money. It has<br />

slowed down the transactions, which are hit with low business.<br />

But the people hope that the effect of demonetisation to curb<br />

the black money will give a huge impact in the area of real<br />

estate. The loan rates will come down, that helps the people to<br />

own a property easily and in less cost.<br />

52 “In the NCR (National Capital<br />

Region), 35-40 percent of the<br />

money involved in the sale<br />

of pre-owned houses was in<br />

black. Only circle rates were<br />

covered in white. This has<br />

stopped after demonetisation,”<br />

said a property consultant in<br />

south Delhi’s Kalkaji area.<br />

“Similar is the case with the<br />

sale of flats that are built by<br />

developers -- properties that<br />

are taken over from existing<br />

independent house owners<br />

and developed into new<br />

houses. This kind of business<br />

has also come to a halt,” he<br />

added.<br />

“The only hope now is that,<br />

once the demonetisation<br />

drive stabilises -- say in threefour-six<br />

months -- banks<br />

will extend more housing<br />

loans. I don’t see a problem<br />

since prices have crashed<br />

25 percent. That is our only<br />

hope,” the property consultant<br />

said.<br />

“The primary sale of the<br />

houses will go up with the<br />

demonetisation move as the<br />

banks will lend more money<br />

to actual buyers,” Manoj<br />

Gaur, Managing Director of<br />

Gaursons India, said.<br />

“Banks are expected to lend<br />

money at a better rate of<br />

interest following an increase<br />

in their deposits. So, instead<br />

of parking their money in<br />

bonds or fixed deposits,<br />

people would prefer to buy<br />

property in the coming days.”<br />

“The secondary market, in<br />

which the big deals of lands<br />

and houses were carried out<br />

at low circle rates, will feel the<br />

impact,” Gaur said.<br />

“I do not believe in the<br />

prediction of a few people that<br />

the property prices would go<br />

down by 25 per cent. Loan<br />

rates might drop in December<br />

after the policy statement is<br />

released. It will be reflected<br />

in a cut from 15 basis points<br />

(BPS) to 25 BPS and there<br />

would be more reduction<br />

in loan rates in the coming<br />

months,” Vinod Bahl, a senior<br />

journalist who writes on real<br />

estate, said.<br />

“There was some momentum<br />

seen during the festive<br />

seasons as good deals were<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | DECEMBER <strong>2016</strong>


offered by the developers, but<br />

that has taken a back seat<br />

and buyers are waiting for<br />

price correction and the rate<br />

of home loans to go down,”<br />

he said.<br />

Jaishree Kurup, Head,<br />

Editorial and Advisory, at<br />

Magicbrics.com, said: “The<br />

cash-savvy market has been<br />

most affected due to the<br />

demonetisation mainly in<br />

north India and in Mumbai.<br />

Markets like Hyderabad and<br />

Chennai, which are not so<br />

much dependent on high cash<br />

transactions, have remained<br />

unaffected.”<br />

“Deals which had 30 to 40<br />

per cent of cash transactions<br />

have got cancelled in recent<br />

days, while the deals which<br />

were based on home loans<br />

did not get affected,” she said.<br />

Ravi Ramu, CEO and MD of<br />

VBHC-Value Homes Private<br />

Ltd., said, “Real estate to the<br />

extent it depends on cash<br />

transactions is dead for now.”<br />

“India’s GDP will steadily rise<br />

as the black money economy<br />

is largely snuffed out in the<br />

near-term and transactions<br />

get recorded in the<br />

mainstream economy. The<br />

fear of such bold anti-black<br />

wealth moves will presumably<br />

drive more to the ‘whiter’ way<br />

of doing business,” Ramu<br />

said.<br />

“Cheaper home loans and car<br />

loans and personal loans will<br />

fuel consumer spends,” Ramu<br />

added.<br />

Demonetisation<br />

A bold and brave step on the<br />

fight against corruption<br />

The demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000<br />

banknotes was a step taken by the Government<br />

of India on 8 November <strong>2016</strong>, ceasing the usage<br />

of all Rs 500 and Rs 1000 banknotes of the<br />

Mahatma Gandhi Series as a form of legal tender<br />

in India from 9 November <strong>2016</strong>.<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | DECEMBER <strong>2016</strong>


The move was termed as<br />

a bold and brave initiative<br />

against corrunption and<br />

funding of terrorism. On<br />

8 November <strong>2016</strong>, an<br />

announcement was made by<br />

the Prime Minister Narendra<br />

Modi in an unscheduled<br />

live televised address to<br />

the nation at 20:15 IST. In<br />

the announcement, Modi<br />

has declared circulation<br />

of all Rs 500 and Rs 1000<br />

banknotes of the Mahatma<br />

Gandhi Series will be<br />

invalid effective from the<br />

midnight and announced<br />

the issuance of new Rs 500<br />

and Rs 2000 banknotes of<br />

the Mahatma Gandhi New<br />

After the official<br />

announcement by Prime<br />

of the Reserve Bank of<br />

Economic Affairs secretary,<br />

Shaktikanta Das explained<br />

in a press conference that<br />

while the supply of notes<br />

of all denominations had<br />

increased by 40% between<br />

2011 and <strong>2016</strong>, theRs 500<br />

and Rs 1000 banknotes<br />

increased by 76% and 109%<br />

respectively in this period<br />

owing to forgery. This forged<br />

cash was then used to fund<br />

terrorist activities against<br />

India. As a result the decision<br />

to eliminate the notes had<br />

been taken.<br />

Patel also informed that the<br />

decision had been made<br />

about six months ago, and<br />

the printing of new banknotes<br />

of denomination Rs 500 and<br />

Rs 2000 had already started.<br />

However, only the top<br />

members of the government,<br />

the move. But media had<br />

reported in October <strong>2016</strong><br />

about introduction of Rs 2000<br />

on 18 November 1910 in Oari village, Burdwan<br />

"<br />

he participated in the Quit India Movement of<br />

Mahatma Gandhi and was again jailed for four years.<br />

He was lodged in the Motihari Jail (in Champaran<br />

district of Bihar). After India gained independence,<br />

he married Anjali in November 1947.<br />

Chandrashekhar Azad, the<br />

leader of that revolutionary<br />

movement, was not in favor of<br />

exploding bombs. However,<br />

others in the party persuaded<br />

Azad to accept Bhagat Singh’s<br />

plan and Azad selected<br />

Batukeshwar Dutt to accompany<br />

Bhagat Singh and throw the<br />

bombs in the Assembly.<br />

Batukeshwar Dut is best<br />

known for having exploded a<br />

few bombs, along with Bhagat<br />

Singh, in the Central Legislative<br />

Assembly in New Delhi on 8 April<br />

1929. After they were arrested,<br />

tried and imprisoned for life, he<br />

and Bhagat Singh initiated a<br />

historic hunger strike protesting<br />

against the abusive treatment<br />

of Indian political prisoners, and<br />

eventually secured some rights<br />

for them.<br />

Along with Singh and Sukhdev,<br />

Dutt was tried in the Central<br />

Assembly Bomb Case and<br />

was sentenced in 1929 to life<br />

imprisonment by the Sessions<br />

Judge of Delhi under Section<br />

307 of the Indian Penal Code<br />

& Section 4 of the Explosive<br />

Substances Act. He was<br />

deported to the Cellular Jail,<br />

Andaman and Nicobar Islands.<br />

"<br />

After his release from prison,<br />

he participated in the Quit India<br />

Movement of Mahatma Gandhi<br />

and was again jailed for four<br />

years. He was lodged in the<br />

Motihari Jail (in Champaran<br />

district of Bihar). After India<br />

gained independence, he<br />

married Anjali in November<br />

1947. Independent India did not<br />

accord him any recognition, and<br />

he has spent his remaining life<br />

in poverty away from the political<br />

limelight.<br />

Dutt outlived all his comrades<br />

and died on 20 July 1965 in the<br />

AIIMS hospital in Delhi after a<br />

long illness. He was cremated<br />

in Hussainiwala near Firozepur<br />

in Punjab where the bodies of<br />

his comrades Bhagat Singh,<br />

Rajguru and Sukhdev were also<br />

cremated. He was survived by<br />

his only daughter, Bharti Bagchi,<br />

in Patna.<br />

INDIAN YOGA<br />

Padangusthasan<br />

BIG TOE POSE<br />

62<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | DECEMBER <strong>2016</strong>


“<br />

Big Toe pose also known as Padangusthasana is an asana<br />

where Pada – Foot, Angusta – Big Toe, Asana – Pose are<br />

put to tandem for the benefit. This asana is one of the<br />

easiest yoga asanas. If you are a beginner, this will be one of<br />

the first few yoga asanas you will be introduced to. It helps<br />

you stretch all your muscles from head to toe.<br />

How to do<br />

1. Stand upright with your<br />

feet parallel to each other.<br />

The feet should be at least<br />

six inches apart. Your legs<br />

also need to be straight.<br />

2. Contract your thigh<br />

muscles, which will lift your<br />

knee caps outward.<br />

3. Keep your legs straight<br />

as you bend forward with<br />

an aim of touching your<br />

forehead to your knee. Your<br />

torso and head should move<br />

together.<br />

4. Grip your big toes with<br />

fingers of each foot. Grip your<br />

toes firmly with your fingers.<br />

5. Press your toes into your<br />

hand. If you are not able to<br />

catch your toes with changing<br />

your posture, you can also<br />

use a band or a strap to hook<br />

under your toes and hold that<br />

instead.<br />

6. As you inhale, lift your<br />

torso and straighten your<br />

elbows.<br />

7. Do this for as high as<br />

you can without stressing any<br />

other part like your neck for<br />

instance.<br />

8. Exhale when you release<br />

your torso and bend towards<br />

your toes again. Do this<br />

repeatedly.<br />

9. Straighten as if going<br />

back to the starting position<br />

but holding your toes. Do<br />

this cycle of inhalation and<br />

exhalation a few times,<br />

increasing the stretch of the<br />

torso every time you stretch.<br />

10. Come back to the starting<br />

position by slowly releasing<br />

the band and straightening<br />

up.<br />

Benefits<br />

1. The asana improves<br />

flexibility as you stretch from<br />

head to toe, even giving your<br />

spine a good stretch.<br />

2. This asana is known to<br />

regulate blood pressure and<br />

anxiety while calming the<br />

person down.<br />

3. Stretching in this pose<br />

increases the blood flow<br />

to the brain, improving the<br />

“<br />

concentration and retention<br />

power. This enables you<br />

to work better and more<br />

efficiently.<br />

4. This pose helps you to<br />

stretch your thigh muscles,<br />

hamstrings, calf muscles<br />

along with the back, lower<br />

back and your arms.<br />

5. It helps all muscles to<br />

burn fat while increasing their<br />

density with the inhaling and<br />

exhaling.<br />

6. Relieves you of that<br />

bloated feelings and any<br />

excess gas you may have<br />

trapped inside.<br />

7. If women are trying<br />

to conceive, this pose is a<br />

good one as it stretches all<br />

muscles.<br />

8. Helps with the incidence<br />

of flat feet.<br />

9. It is also important that<br />

your muscles feel stretched<br />

but not worn.<br />

10. This pose helps tired<br />

muscles to feel rejuvenated.<br />

RELATIONSHIP<br />

Healthy family<br />

Relationships<br />

68<br />

Family is defined as a domestic group of people with<br />

some degree of kinship – whether through blood,<br />

marriage or adoption. Ideally each child is nurtured,<br />

respected and grows up to care for others and develop<br />

strong and healthy relationships. The values of the<br />

family is what is going to mould the children and<br />

that determine the future of the child.<br />

Family values definition<br />

generation. It boils down<br />

life. The word family is<br />

one of the greatest words<br />

in the world. The family is<br />

the building block of the<br />

community and if it is happy<br />

and effective the whole<br />

community becomes happy.<br />

As Euipides stated “ Blood is<br />

thicker than water, and when<br />

one is in trouble, it is best to<br />

seek out a relative’s open<br />

arms”.<br />

Recreation is an important<br />

activity in the family,<br />

because it fosters closeness<br />

in the family, opportunities<br />

for learning, creating<br />

memories, improving social<br />

skills, and developing<br />

empathy. Moral values<br />

provide the foundation from<br />

which you make decisions.<br />

Moral values are learned<br />

from your parents and your<br />

experiences.<br />

Religious values play<br />

an important role in<br />

the moulding of family<br />

relationship and center<br />

around the expectations<br />

that people have about<br />

themselves and others<br />

based on the beliefs of their<br />

faith. Although each faith has<br />

its beliefs, there are common<br />

values that many faiths tend<br />

What are the requirements for<br />

a sucessful romantic lifestyle?<br />

Well it depends from person<br />

to person. But here are some<br />

of the tips which may help in<br />

having a sucessful romantic<br />

lifestyle<br />

1<br />

Cook together when you<br />

want to stay healthy,<br />

there can be lots of cook and<br />

prep time involved. Take<br />

the advantage by doing it<br />

together and being together.<br />

2<br />

Walks are a way that<br />

connects both in the<br />

midst of busy work schedules<br />

and juggling with kids. It gives<br />

a chance to discuss about<br />

the day while holding hands<br />

and decompress any stresses<br />

together.<br />

3<br />

Try new sports or<br />

activities together, like<br />

soccer or softball or any other<br />

which you both like. It will be<br />

a great bonding experience<br />

requiring a lot of teamwork,<br />

support and trust.<br />

4<br />

Visit the grocery store and<br />

pick up some new healthy<br />

foods you’ve been wanting<br />

to try. Prepare all the food<br />

together, sit down taste and<br />

discuss.<br />

5Enjoy some friendly<br />

competition like race each<br />

other, see who can do more<br />

pushups, measure who has<br />

the highest vertical leap. It will<br />

be fun and interesting, even<br />

your kids can join you if they<br />

are at that age.<br />

6<br />

Working out together is<br />

such a great way to bond.<br />

Spot each other on the weight<br />

rack, run together, run obstacle<br />

courses or relays. It wil teach<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | DECEMBER <strong>2016</strong>


you to support each other, and<br />

will push you to work just a little<br />

harder.<br />

7<br />

Wrestle, play laser tag or<br />

shoot water guns, have tickle<br />

fights, play hide and seek. The<br />

more childish you can get, the<br />

better.<br />

8<br />

Partner up for races or even<br />

do something really different<br />

like a mud run. Crossing the finish<br />

line together is an experience like<br />

no other and makes victories that<br />

much sweeter.<br />

9<br />

Take a camping weekend and<br />

go hiking together during the<br />

day, enjoy some healthy grilling,<br />

and relax together under the stars<br />

at night.<br />

0 1Hit up the dance clubs together<br />

every now and then or you could<br />

even sign up for dance lessons<br />

and make it a weekly event.<br />

INDIAN HISTORY<br />

Mehrgarh era<br />

82<br />

Mehrgarh is a Neolithic (7000-3200 BC) site on the Kachi<br />

plain of Baluchistan, Pakistan, and one of the earliest<br />

sites with evidence of farming (wheat and barley) and<br />

herding (cattle, sheep and goats) in south Asia. The site<br />

is located on the principal route between what is now<br />

Afghanistan and the Indus Valley.<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | DECEMBER <strong>2016</strong>


The habitation of the site<br />

has been divided into<br />

seven periods, the<br />

first being the Pre-<br />

Pottery Neolithic<br />

period that dates<br />

to circa 7000<br />

B.C. or even<br />

earlier. The site<br />

was abandoned<br />

between 2000 and<br />

2500 B.C. during a<br />

period of contact with<br />

the Indus Civilization and<br />

then reused as a burial<br />

ground for some time<br />

after 2000 B.C.<br />

Perhaps the<br />

most important<br />

feature of<br />

Mehrgarh is<br />

the fact that<br />

one can witness<br />

its gradual<br />

development from<br />

an early village society<br />

to a regional center that<br />

covered an area of 200<br />

hectares at its height.<br />

In the course of this<br />

development, a<br />

huge platform<br />

that may reflect<br />

some form of<br />

authority was<br />

constructed at<br />

the site. Mehrgarh<br />

was also a center<br />

of manufacture for<br />

various figurines and pottery<br />

that were distributed to<br />

surrounding regions<br />

Research shows that people<br />

here lived in houses and<br />

were involved in hunting,<br />

domesticating of animals and<br />

farming cereals like barley<br />

and wheat. This huntingfarming<br />

society developed<br />

gradually and their pursuits<br />

were creative. During the<br />

early period these people<br />

used stone and bone tools<br />

i.e. polished stone-axes, flint<br />

blades and bone-pointers.<br />

By 6000 B.C. the handmade<br />

pottery appeared<br />

and in the 5th millenium<br />

B.C. Metallurgy and potterwheel<br />

were introduced and<br />

they produced some fine<br />

terra-cotta figurine and<br />

pottery with exotic geometric<br />

designs. Subsequently<br />

they produced and wore<br />

ornaments of beads,<br />

seashells and semi-precious<br />

stones like Lapis Lazuli.<br />

Most of the ruins at<br />

Mehrgarh are buried under<br />

alluvium deposits, though<br />

some structures could be<br />

seen eroding on the surface.<br />

Currently, the excavated<br />

remains at the site comprise<br />

a complex of large<br />

compartmental mud-brick<br />

structures.<br />

Function of these subdivided<br />

units, built of hand-formed<br />

plano-convex mud bricks,<br />

is still not clear but it is<br />

thought that many were used<br />

probably for storage, rather<br />

than residential, purposes.<br />

A couple of mounds also<br />

contain formal cemeteries,<br />

parts of which have been<br />

excavated.<br />

Although Mehrgarh was<br />

abandoned by the time<br />

of the emergence of the<br />

literate urbanized phase of<br />

the Indus civilization around<br />

Bajaj’s<br />

iconic chetak<br />

to be relaunched<br />

There was a day when Bajaj’s scooter Chetak ruled<br />

the roads. It is still nostalgic for many when talking<br />

about scooter. They do not have anything to talk<br />

but Bajaj Chetak. The iconic scooter was out of<br />

market at around 2006. Now there is a good news<br />

for all the ‘Hamara Bajaj’ lovers. Chetak is going to<br />

be relaunched in the year 2017.<br />

DECEMBER <strong>2016</strong> | WWW.WISHESH.COM


TECHNOLOGY<br />

As per the images in a publication, the 2017 Bajaj Chetak<br />

will miss out on telescopic forks up front and the front<br />

drum brake. However, since the final production model<br />

is a bit far away from reality, we can safely assume that<br />

Bajaj will add up these elements to its scooter to enhance<br />

its desirability quotient.<br />

88<br />

The specifications are not revealed, but<br />

says that it is ready to compete with the<br />

present day scooters. The Chetak is<br />

expected to have an all-new design and<br />

modern features to lure the customers<br />

and give competition to the already<br />

powerful Honda Activa 125 and TVS<br />

Jupiter in the market.<br />

The all new Bajaj Chetak will get front<br />

disc brakes, a conventional suspension<br />

setup to enhance the riding experience<br />

and a host of utility spaces like large<br />

under seat storage, front storage space<br />

and hooks under the seat. Going by<br />

the image, the new Chetak also will<br />

be equipped with leather or premium<br />

seat upholstery with contrast stitching,<br />

blackened-out side view mirrors and will<br />

have a glossy exterior paint.<br />

To make the scooter look<br />

contemporary, the two-wheeler maker<br />

has equipped the new Chetak with a<br />

new headlamp cluster, sleek vertical turn<br />

indicators at the front along with bigger<br />

air vents at the centre. It is expected that<br />

the Bajaj Chetak will be powered by a<br />

four-stroke, air-cooled 125cc or 150cc<br />

engine that will produce more power<br />

for<br />

GRANARY<br />

94<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | DECEMBER <strong>2016</strong>


Granary room should be free from all the<br />

germs and infections and thus have a particular<br />

corner for it. If placed in wrong place, the<br />

grains will be prone to infection and will not<br />

benefit the persons having it.<br />

Guiding principles for<br />

Granary room:<br />

1. Granary rooms should be<br />

placed in North-west portion<br />

of building as it is beneficial<br />

in terms of providing good<br />

provision of storage with<br />

minimal chances of shortage in<br />

grains.<br />

2. Door in this room can be<br />

constructed in any direction<br />

except South-west and must<br />

have two shutters.<br />

3. The height of granary room<br />

should be more than other<br />

rooms. The windows in this<br />

room should be made on<br />

Eastern or Western sides.<br />

4. The colour of the granary<br />

room should be tints of white,<br />

yellow or blue.<br />

5. A picture of Lord Vishnu<br />

must be placed on the Eastern<br />

wall of granary room.<br />

6. Store annual stock of<br />

granary in South-west corner<br />

7. Daily use grains must be<br />

stored in North-west direction.<br />

8. If there is a provision of<br />

water in the store room, then<br />

it must be kept in pitchers or<br />

vessels.<br />

9. Oil, ghee, gas cylinder etc<br />

should be stored in South-east<br />

corner of storage.<br />

10. Avoid any kind of empty<br />

container in granary room.<br />

11. Never sleep in storage<br />

room as the vibrations tends to<br />

obstruct people’s sleep.<br />

The spiritually wise in Vedic<br />

knowledge should inspire the<br />

ignorant to perform their duties<br />

with attentiveness and care.<br />

Verse meaning<br />

Let not the wise disrupt the<br />

minds of the ignorant who are<br />

attached to fruitive action. They<br />

should not be encouraged<br />

to refrain from work, but to<br />

engage in work in the spirit of<br />

devotion.<br />

Explanation<br />

All rituals, all performances<br />

of sacrifices and everything<br />

that is put into the Vedas,<br />

including all directions for<br />

material activities, are meant<br />

for understanding the almighty,<br />

which is the ultimate goal of<br />

life. A realized soul in should<br />

not disturb others in their<br />

activities or understanding,<br />

instead he should act by<br />

showing how the results of all<br />

work can be dedicated to the<br />

service of supreme lord.<br />

It may be put forth that if one<br />

feels compassion for the<br />

ignorant one should give them<br />

knowledge of atma-tattva or<br />

soul realisation which is the<br />

highest. The ignorant should<br />

not be influenced to refrain<br />

from performing their duties<br />

by superior instructions about<br />

the atma or soul that they are<br />

not qualified to understand.<br />

The spiritually wise in Vedic<br />

knowledge should inspire<br />

the ignorant to perform their<br />

duties with attentiveness<br />

and care. If the minds of the<br />

ignorant become disturbed<br />

and unsettled then they may<br />

lose faith in working altogether<br />

and with actions stopped<br />

and knowledge not rising the<br />

ignorant would lose out in both<br />

ways.<br />

Rock On 2 2/5<br />

116<br />

Rock On 2 is a<br />

film that can<br />

be completely<br />

ignored because<br />

of the poor<br />

narration. The<br />

movie fails to<br />

make any noise<br />

with the music.<br />

Give it a skip.<br />

Story :<br />

Rock On 2 is all about Adi (Farhan<br />

Akhtar) who moves to Meghalaya<br />

and he starts working for the<br />

welfare of locals over there. Joe<br />

(Arjun Rampal) turns judge for a<br />

reality show and he owns a bar<br />

that plays live music. KD (Purab<br />

Kohli) prays for re-uniting the band<br />

and his hope raises after he listens<br />

to a recording by Jiah (Shraddha<br />

Kapoor) and Uday (Shashank<br />

Arora). The rest of the film is all<br />

about how the band re-united and<br />

what happens next. Watch Rock<br />

On 2 to know about the rest.<br />

Analysis :<br />

The first half of the movie starts<br />

low in pace and the narration has<br />

been quite dull. Though some of<br />

the moments raise the race, the<br />

film dips down again. Couple of<br />

songs have been shot well and the<br />

performances by the lead actors<br />

make the audience energetic.<br />

The interval episodes make the<br />

audience engaging however the<br />

film has been quite slow in pace<br />

and it lacks entertainment. On the<br />

whole the first half of Rock On 2<br />

tests your patience.<br />

The second half of Rock On 2 too<br />

carries the same mood and it dips<br />

down completely. The biggest<br />

disappointment is the songs as<br />

none of them have been melodious<br />

and interesting. The pre-climax<br />

episodes have been dragged too<br />

much that they test the patience<br />

of the audience. On the whole the<br />

second half of Rock On 2 is quite<br />

disappointing.<br />

Final Word:<br />

Rock On 2 is a film that can be<br />

completely ignored because of the<br />

poor narration. The movie fails to<br />

make any noise with the music.<br />

Give it a skip.<br />

Force 2<br />

Analysis :<br />

The first half of Force 2 promises<br />

some a decent commercial action<br />

drama as the film has been a right<br />

mix of all the ingredients. John<br />

Abraham opens with a bang and<br />

his introduction has been loud<br />

and stupendous. After a decent<br />

commercial drama, the film turns<br />

extremely interesting. Though it has<br />

small dips, the first half of Force 2<br />

manages to stand strong all over.<br />

The songs have been shot well and<br />

the interval episodes make the film<br />

interesting.<br />

The second half of Force 2 has<br />

been quite emotional and it has<br />

been laced with action. The<br />

element of crime dominates the film<br />

completely and Force 2 is sure not<br />

a disappointment. The movie takes<br />

the right move all over and it makes<br />

a decent impact on the audience<br />

all over. The pre-climax episodes<br />

of Force 2 have been completely<br />

engaging however Sonakshi Sinha<br />

acts as the major disappointment<br />

in the film. The climax has been<br />

decent and on the whole, Force 2 is<br />

sure a decent and engaging action<br />

drama.<br />

Final Word:<br />

Naruda Donoruda is a film that<br />

can be given a huge skip as the<br />

film ends out to be a boring feast<br />

because of the clumsy narration<br />

and outdated presentation.<br />

Story :<br />

Dear Zindagi<br />

is a movie that<br />

falls short of the<br />

expectations.<br />

Alia Bhatt and<br />

Shah Rukh<br />

Khan tops the<br />

show however<br />

an unusual<br />

narration<br />

makes the film<br />

fall flat.<br />

Dear Zindagi is all about Kyra<br />

(Alia Bhatt) and her life style. She<br />

breaks up with Sid (Angad Bbedi)<br />

and then with Raghuvendra (Kunal<br />

Kapoor). Kyra dreams big and she<br />

thinks that they seem to be sinking<br />

because of her breakups and love<br />

life. That is when she happens to<br />

meet a renowned psychiartist Dr<br />

Jehangir Khan (Shah Rukh Khan).<br />

With Khan interacting with Kyra<br />

in various sessions, things start<br />

changing and the rest of Dear<br />

Zindagi is all about what happens<br />

next. Watch Dear Zindagi to know<br />

about the film.<br />

Analysis :<br />

The first half of Dear Zindagi rarely<br />

has something to express and it<br />

looks completely clitched. The<br />

screenplay has been hammered<br />

enough that it makes no difference.<br />

The entire first half has been<br />

wasted without revealing anything<br />

to the audience. Some of the<br />

episodes impress the audience but<br />

they make no impact on the whole.<br />

The visuals have been fresh and<br />

the interval episodes looked simple.<br />

On the whole the first half of Dear<br />

Zindagi is a disappointment.<br />

The second half of Dear Zindagi<br />

has been decent however it tests<br />

the patience of the audience.<br />

Some of the episodes have been<br />

dragged without any need. Once<br />

again the songs looked decent and<br />

the cinematography is the major<br />

highlight of the film. With many<br />

unusual episodes, Dear Zindagi<br />

looks slammed on the whole and<br />

the second half has been better but<br />

it too falls short of the expectations.<br />

Final Word:<br />

Dear Zindagi is a movie that falls<br />

short of the expectations. Alia Bhatt<br />

Naruda<br />

Donoruda is a<br />

film that can be<br />

given a huge<br />

skip as the film<br />

ends out to be<br />

a boring feast<br />

because of the<br />

Story :<br />

Naruda Donoruda is all about<br />

the life of Vikram (Sumanth)<br />

who parties hard without many<br />

responsibilites. He will be<br />

nabbed by an infertility specialist<br />

(Thanikella Bharani) who forces<br />

him to turn sperm donor. Vikram<br />

gets habitual of the habit as he<br />

gets huge money. It is during this<br />

time, he falls in love with Aashima<br />

(Pallavi Subash) after which his<br />

life changes completely. They<br />

get married after which Aashima<br />

comes to know about the bitter<br />

truth that Vikram is a sperm donor.<br />

The rest of the film is all about<br />

how they patch up. Watch Naruda<br />

Analysis :<br />

The first half of Naruda Donoruda<br />

has enough patches and it has<br />

been hammered enough. The<br />

love story has been fresh enough<br />

however the concept of sperm<br />

donation has been quite hard<br />

to digest. The songs have been<br />

shot well and placed well. With a<br />

simple interval block, the first half<br />

of Naruda Donoruda has nothing<br />

much enough to get excited.<br />

The second half of Naruda<br />

Donoruda falls flat completely<br />

as the film misses the needed<br />

emotional feel. Most of the<br />

episodes look boring and<br />

outdated. Some of the episodes<br />

look repeated and the pre-climax<br />

episodes look dragged completely.<br />

The climax has been decent<br />

however it doesn’t make much<br />

difference. On the whole the<br />

second half of Naruda Donoruda is<br />

after the 17th as it might back fire. Important<br />

Between 11th-20th, you might sign off some<br />

22th and 26th. It’s going to be a positive period<br />

the 15th is a brilliant period, but don’t expect<br />

clarity till end of this month. You might work<br />

with or hire new people this month. Spend time<br />

organising paperwork. Health will need attention<br />

between 9th-27th, especially eyes and stomach.


VIRGO<br />

November was not your best month. But all your ideas and plans will move forward<br />

after the 7th, and you can expect people to acknowledge or understand them after<br />

the 15th. Clarity about an ongoing project will come through after the 12th. You might<br />

even go through a role or job change after December 17. This month, new associations or<br />

tie ups are on the cards. Work will be slow from 24th to 29th. Organise finances as you might<br />

feel financially insecure. Health will need attention between 1st and 18th, and post 26th.<br />

SCORPIO<br />

While work will be slow till 12th,<br />

expect clarity and more work to come<br />

in after 14th and 22nd. New orders,<br />

sampling, projects will keep you busy<br />

after the 23rd. Avoid friction with staff around<br />

18th-24th. You could be in the limelight after<br />

the 25th. Abundance through old clients will<br />

flow in after the 17th. Avoid extra expenses<br />

around 3rd-16th. A family member’s health<br />

will need attention around the 6th-17th. Avoid<br />

friction with your partner after the 27th.<br />

AQUARIUS<br />

December will be a slow period at work,<br />

no matter what you try to do. Even if<br />

things move forward, there will be a<br />

slowdown from other people’s end.<br />

This can be frustrating but it will also give you<br />

a second chance to rework and structure to<br />

prepare you for the end result. Avoid arguments<br />

at work around 18th-25th as it could backfire.<br />

Finances will be slow due to extra expenses.<br />

LIBRA<br />

Everything you want will manifest this<br />

month. In fact be careful what you ask<br />

for. New opportunities will keep you<br />

busy till the 8th, post which work will be<br />

slow due to travels and pick up after the 24th.<br />

You might work with new people this month.<br />

Delegate more, else you will burn yourself out.<br />

Health will need attention due to exhaustion<br />

around 16th-28th. Family life will be stable<br />

throughout the month. Just avoid friction with<br />

your partner between 20th and 26th .<br />

SAGITTARIUS<br />

You need to have a plan in place<br />

before you jump to decisions. You<br />

have been getting carried away by<br />

your ambitions. You also need to be<br />

practical. Clarity will come through after the<br />

7th and 22nd, but don’t be aggressive with<br />

people at work. Avoid friction with a senior<br />

member around 17th-26th. Health will need<br />

attention between 6th-17th. Family life will<br />

be stable, but post 17th, a family member’s<br />

health will be of concern.<br />

CAPRICORN<br />

Work will be erratic, some days good<br />

and some days slow. You can’t do<br />

much. Don’t blame yourself for the<br />

slowdown. Not everything can be<br />

under your control. New job opportunities or<br />

orders will come through after the 11th. An<br />

important meeting around 18th-23rd will work<br />

in your favour. Don’t fear the past repeating<br />

in areas of work. Balance eating patterns and<br />

sleep on time.<br />

PISCES<br />

You need to take charge but at the<br />

same time be patient. You have<br />

been procrastinating or feeling lazy,<br />

but the energies this month will<br />

give you the push to move forward. Work<br />

will be stable throughout the month with<br />

minor delays around the 16th and 21st. An<br />

important meeting around 6th to 11th and<br />

after 26th will bring in abundance. Health will<br />

need attention, especially stomach and lower<br />

back, throughout the month.<br />
