Most of the members are from the weaker part of the society and two among them namely Padmanabha Sahu and Telu Tarani are physically challenged. Prince Dance Group was formed when a group of daily wage laborers coolies, inspired by a dance show, came together to try to make a bid for the first place this year on Indians got Talent on Colors channel. When they made it to the Semi Finals last week, tears could be streaking down the faces of the judges Shekhar Kapur and Kiran Kher. The whole nation gave them a standing ovation. The finals are on the 22nd and the vote is going to be decided by 50% of the marks coming from the judges and the rest from audience SMSing in their votes.

Dalit Ex-MLA has to do labour work!

Hyderabad, March 27 (IANS) The Andhra Pradesh State Human Rights Commission has issued a notice to the state government, seeking a report on the plight of a former legislator who now works as a daily wage labourer to make ends meet.
Taking note of a media report, the commission asked the government to clarify why it took no steps to alleviate the living conditions of Sukka Pagadalu and her husband.

Pagadalu, who belonged to the Congress party, was elected to the state legislative assembly in the 1972 elections from Patapatnam constituency in Srikakulam district in north coastal Andhra bordering Orissa. The constituency was then reserved for Scheduled Castes.

The commission has directed the government to ensure a minimum dignified life for the former public representative and her husband Sukka Dasu. It asked the Srikakulam district collector to submit a report by March 31.

“It is shocking to note that an ex-public representative is living in such deplorable conditions that she has to work as a daily wager to eke out a living,” the commission said and asked the authorities to explain why steps were not taken to ensure a dignified life for the couple.

It also wanted to know why the couple was not granted a dwelling under the rural housing scheme and if the couple was getting old-age pension and rice at Rs.2 a kg.

Ironically, these are some of the welfare schemes implemented by the Congress government in the last five years but the benefits seem to have not reached even its own former legislator.

The 64-year-old former legislator, a Dalit, earns Rs.60 per day as a daily wage labourer. She along with her husband were found lifting heaps of mud on her head at a construction site in her native Mukthapuram village.

Pagadalu was one of 33 women legislators elected to the 294-member assembly in 1972. In the 1978 elections, she contested as Congress candidate from Palakonda (SC) but lost the elections. Later, she also served as sarpanch or village head.

Though she receives a monthly pension as a former legislator, it is just not enough as the couple incurred heavy debts to get their daughters married. The couple owns a small plot in the village but in the off season they work as daily wage labourers.

At a time when most politicians are living lavishly in posh bungalows, this poor woman and her husband live in a thatched house that leaks when it rains. She ran from pillar to post to get a slab for her roof and even approached sitting Congress legislator and state minister for forests Satrucharla Vijayaramaraju but in vain.

In fact the tag of a former legislator has come as a hurdle in her availing the benefits under government schemes. The local officials told her that she is not eligible for a house under the Indiramma housing scheme as she is a former legislator. She got the same reply when she applied for old age pension.

She sees a world of difference in the politics of those days and now. “Then we used to have selfless leaders but today’s leaders are after power and money,” said Pagadalu.

All she has today are the memories of that golden era and these include a picture of her with then prime minister Indira Gandhi, which she has preserved all along.

Comments-

1) MLA hokar bhi kuchh nahi kamaaya? Yaar inhone imaan-daari ki to had kar di! Aaj ke netaa to ek raat me karodpati ban jaate hain. Aur ye mahaaashaya road-pati ban gaye!

2) She is real honest person & must be honoured & helped. Govt must use such honest & sincere person for the Nation.

Talented Bangalore Student!!

21-year-old Gayathri, a computer science student who wants to join the IAS, drives an auto and does part-time modelling for a living. Knowing how to handle bigots and boorish men comes with the turf, someone Bangalore’s much-pestered women could take a leaf from…

Gayathri S, a Computer Science student who wants to join the IAS, drives an auto and does part-time modelling for a living

Gayathri S is petite, but behind the demure exterior is a strong-willed woman. This 21-year-old computer science student from Sri Revana Siddeshwara Institute of Technology, Chikkajala had to put aside her dreams of a career in the administrative service and drive an autorickshaw to support her family. Everyday, her work takes her through the lanes of Malleshwaram, Palace Gutthalli, Vyalikaval, and MG Road, and she has learnt to ignore unpleasant situations or, if it so warrants, to confront them.

Considering the fact that her work is male dominated, she is often singled out by her co-workers. “The younger auto drivers do make unflattering comments sometimes. I don’t have time to react to them and frankly I don’t care. The older men are kinder. They keep asking me why I had to do this, it’s not nice and all that,” said Gayathri. “See, I don’t park in the stands anyway. Since the auto is my family’s own, we park it next to my house. That way I get to keep my interaction with my fellow drivers minimal,” she added.

She, however, knows how to protect herself from lecherous men. “Most of the time I take female passengers and college girls. I try not to take men, especially younger ones, some of whom seem to assume I am fair game,” she said.

Gayathri with mother Rajeshwari

LOST CHILDHOOD

Gayathri’s father left the family when she was in class 10, but as an innately proud person she refuses to paint herself a victim. Her father used to be an auto driver himself and she first learnt to drive an auto from him when she was still under-age. “When I was in class nine and 10, just for fun I would drive the auto, and I am glad I did it so that now it helps me put food on the table,” said Gayathri.

This young woman started driving for a living only eleven months ago and the decision was propelled by the falling heath of her mother, Rajeshwari. “After my father left, my mother would somehow manage to make both ends meet by making incense sticks, but then her health started failing and she had to stop,” Gayathri said.

It was then that she decided to take things into her own capable hands. “We already had the auto and I knew how to drive it, so it was a natural choice. Initially, there were some hiccups. While attaining my licence the inspector told me that I cannot drive in my auto because he thought that I would have modified some parts to my benefit. He gave me another auto for the test drive and I cleared the test. That’s when I got my licence,” she added.

Besides driving, she manages to attend college three days a week.

HIGH ON HOPE

Gayathri has big dreams but her immediate plan is the education of her younger brother, Purushottam who is studying in class 10, and her sister, Usha who is in sixth standard. “I have to take care of their education, and after my education I want to pursue IAS,” said Gayathri. There are also debts to repay
.
“We have a Maruthi van that we bought on loan. In the morning I leave home by 6:15 and pick up school children from Malleshwaram, Kavalbyrasandra, R T Nagar and Hebbal and drop them off at St Joseph’s school,” said Gayathri. She also has a driver who brings the children back from school. But doesn’t she miss her own classes? “Yes I do. I am barely able to attend three days a week. But there is an accountant called Ramesh in my college who helps me a lot. He knows my problems and helps me with finances whenever I have to pay money for attendance shortage,” said Gayathri.

On an average, Gayathri gets to earn about Rs 15,000. “But out of that, Rs 2,500 goes for rent, Rs 2000 is given to the driver. My mother’s doctors bills and medicines cost about Rs 2, 500 to Rs 3,000 and my fuel costs about Rs 4000.

Whatever I do the money never seems to be enough,” she said.

This IAS aspirant also takes up a number of promotional jobs apart from part-time modelling. “In fact a Tamil TV serial director, Ramesh wants to make a serial on my life and wants me to act in it too. I only have to work during the weekends for the serial, which will appear in Vijaya TV,” said Gayathri. This young brave heart goes on to add that, “Sometimes I don’t get sleep at night. I keep thinking I do so much but still money is never enough. But then I console myself because I know problems are never permanent.”

Do you think US Economy is booming? No, but Indian Economy is Going Down. ?

U CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE TO THE INDIAN ECONOMY BY FOLLOWING FEW SIMPLE STEPS.
Please spare a couple of minutes here... for the sake of India ... our country.



I got this article from one of my friend
s, but it's true, we can see this in day to day life,

Small example,
Before 5 months 1 US $ = IND Rs 3
9
After 5 months. Now it is
1 $ = IND Rs 50

Do you think US Economy is booming? No, but Indian Economy is Going Down.

Our Economy is in u'r hands


INDIAN economy is in a crisis. Our country like many other ASIAN countries is undergoing a severe economic crunch.

Many INDIAN industries are closing down. The INDIAN economy is in a crisis and if we do not take proper steps to control those, we will be in a critical situation.


More than 30000 crore rupees of foreign exchange are being siphoned out of our country on products such as cosmetics, snacks, tea, beverages... etc which are grown, produced and consumed here.


A cold drink that costs only 70 / 80 paisa to produce is sold for NINE rupees, and a major chunk of profits from these are sent abroad. This is a serious drain on INDIAN economy.


We have nothing against Multinational companies, but to protect our own interests we request everybody to use INDIAN products only for next two years. With the rise in petrol prices, if we do not do this, the rupee will devalue further and we will end up paying much more for the same products in the near future.



What you can do about it?

1. Buy only products manufactured by WHOLLY INDIAN COMPANIES.

2. ENROLL as many people as possible for this cause.

Return of the truest Son (Naveen Patnaik )


President Honorable Sri. Naveen Patnaik for its spectacular victory in Orissa Assembly Elections and wish him good luck for his swearing in as Chief Minister for third time in row tomorrow.

With Blessings of Lord Jagannath Biju Janata Dal bagged 104 out of 147 assembly seats including one BJD backed Independent Candidate. After winning the Hinjili MLA seat in Ganjam district by a margin of 72, 000 votes Sri. Naveen Patnaik first visited Sri Jagannath Temple Puri to have 'darshan' of the world Lord followed by Swargadwar on the sea-shore where both his father and mother were cremated. He offered floral tributes at late Sri. Biju Patnaik's 'samadhi' before returning to the state capital. Naveen, who scored a Hat-trick in record straight, attributed the victory as victory of Orissa and Oriya people. I am delighted and humble enough after the results are out, people of the state have supported BJD as we have delivered growth, harmony, progress & development. Being a regional party BJD has always worked to fulfill the just demands of people of Orissa as successive Govts. in centre have neglected the state for several decades.

Orissa has more than 14.5 million voters, including 7 million women. There were 84 candidates for the 11 Lok Sabha seats and 688 contestants in 77 assembly constituencies in the final phase of elections in Orissa.

Leading astrologer of the country Bejan Daruwalas predictions. He had said Ganesha finds that Mangal, Patnaiks Yoga Karaka planet, is ruling as per the Vimshottari Dasha system. This alone was enough for him to lead his party to a spectacular win in this election. Shani, a Maraka planet, for him passes through the second house and aspects the eighth house.

A brief about Sri. Naveen Patnaik :

Naveen, fondly called as Pappu, was the second son of late legendary Biju Patnaik. His brother Prem Patnaik is a business man while his sister Gita Mehta is a renowned author and is the wife of Sonny Mehta, Editor-in-Chief of Alfred A. Knopf, New York. Naveen Patnaik started out at Welham Boys' School in Dehradun when he was seven years old and later continued at the The Doon School, Dehradun until he completed a Senior Cambridge Certificate at 17 years. He attended Delhi University where he obtained his Bachelor's Degree in Arts. Naveen Patnaik returned from the U.S. upon the death of his father Biju Patnaik and was elected as Member of the 11th Lok Sabha in by-election from Aska Parliamentary Constituency. He was a member of the Consultative Committee of Ministry of Steel Mines, Member of Standing Committee on Commerce, and Member Library Committee of Parliament. In 1998 he formed the Biju Janata Dal Party in Orissa and was elected to the 12th Lok Sabha from the Aska Parliamentary constituency. Subsequently he became the Chief Minister of the state in 2000 with the support of the Bharatiya Janata Party and has been ruling since. His party was part of the National Democratic Alliance. Naveen Patnaik is a founder member of the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH). He has authored three books: A Second Paradise: Indian Country Life 1590-1947, A Desert Kingdom: The people of Bikaner and the Garden of Life: An introduction to the Healing Plants of India, each one published in India, England and US.

Orissa students' rocket design adjudged best by NASA!!!


Bhubaneswar:-Adding another feather to the Pride hat of Orissa, A Rocket designed by two Orissa students got selected as the best by NASA.

A project presented by Oriya siblings Pooja and Swastika has won the first prize in the Nasa Space Settlement Design Contest-2009 conducted by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

The winning model titled Gagaraja Odisa has been presented by Pooja, a student of BJB Junior College, and Swastika, of St Xaviers High School. The 100m tall model comprises two segments  Akbar (upper) and Mahayana (lower).

The space vehicle is laid out in a triangular manner called Triratha as per ancient Kalingan Temple Style found in Orissa. Pooja and Swastika of Bhubaneswar have won the grand prize from among 309 projects submitted by 875 students.

These projects were sponsored by 96 teachers from across the world. Students from US, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Dubai, UAE, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Romania, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Uruguay participated in the competition.

Puja is a Plus Two second year student in BJB Junior College in Bhubaneswar and her younger sister, Swastika is a student of Class X at St Xaviers' High School, Kedargouri in Bhubaneswar. The girls were guided by their father Sri. Deepak Bhattacharya, a scientist. The vehicle can also carry an additional two metric tonne weight to a geo-stationary orbit about 36,000 km above the earth's surface.

Well, the debatable topic here is Indigenous Technology of our country got leaked by a space scientist thru the hands of his off springs to a super power nation which always kept distance and reluctance to provide any technical assistance to our country in space research and development sectors. Any way we wish the young achievers a heart full of congradulations. This news is archived from Orissa Diary

Extraordinaire Citizen Award to Sri. Upendra Tripathy - MD, BMTC (Bangalore)




Extraordinaire Citizen Award to Sri. Upendra Tripathy, IAS ( Managing Director, Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation )


Please find attached the detailed news, It's at the front page of Today's Times of India.

We are proud to be Odia, Proud to be from a land that's referred as Sri Jagannath Dham.

We have shown the world that Our state Orissa can no longer be identified or referred neither as "A Backward State ruined by Super cyclone, hunger deaths of Kalahandi and nor even be referred by the incident of Graham Stains and Dara Singh".

We have proven universally that "Orissa is a state of Brave hearts, Supreme brains, Spectacular talent, Helping Hands, Loving Hearts, Honest Souls, Dedicated & Respected Personalities and Rock hard guts".


Sri. Upendra Tripathy receives PM Excellence award


Karnataka-cadre 1980 batch IAS officer Upendra Tripathy is among the officials who have bagged the Prime Minister's Award for Excellence. Tripathy, 52, gets the award for steering Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) as India's only profit-making urban transport undertaking as its key driver for more than five years before he picked a position with the Central government's ministry of tribal affairs in New Delhi last month. Driving profit: The popular BMTC bus on Bangalore roads. Photo: Stephen David BMTC recorded just a small 0.14 accidents per one lakh km rate, the lowest in India. Tripathy used to have his regular janata darshans for his employees where grievances would be immediately be attended to: from an injured driver seeking a desk job to a pregnant lady conductor asking for liberal extension of leave with pay.

The award winning officer also ensured that BMTC had tied up with nearly thirty big hospitals. Staff children got free tuition. He fit more than 1,200 buses - of the 4,700 with BMTC - with GPS device to know where the buses were. He has worked on a PhD on political economy of India 's ozone management policy at Carleton University, Ottawa. Taking a leaf from Lalu Prasad who talked of milking the Jersey cows to the maximum to ensure the maximum profits, Tripathy also worked his fleet to the max -- at 94 per cent highest fleet utilisation in the country - driving a profit of Rs 200-odd crore last year. Just before leaving for Delhi, Tripathy also prepared the ground for the BMTC to go for an initial public offer that will fetch the company about Rs 5,000 crore.

He is an ardent advocate of mass transport. As he told India Today earlier, "One bus can keep nearly forty cars off the roads and cities must have dedicated bus lanes called Bus Rapid Transit corridor." The environmentalist in him also ensured that the Kyoto Protocol is also applicable for the BMTC buses - earning Certified Emission Reduction (CER) by using bio-diesel in 280 of its buses to start with. For the uninitiated, the Kyoto Protocol is an international agreement, negotiated in Kyoto, Japan, in December 1997, by which industrialised nations have committed to making substantial reductions in their emissions of greenhouse gases by 2012. More than 160 countries have committed to the agreement thus far. If all its 4,700 buses run on bio-diesel, BMTC will earn US$1.9 million a year through carbon trade. It will also need a whopping 1.46 lakh MT of bio-diesel. Tripathy hopes that BMTC's model of success can be replicated in other metros. BMTC buses ply a million km today carrying three million passengers daily.
