  1. Hi Priest,

    Making a comeback on the silk route!!!
    The handloom weavers of the State capital are all set to regain their glory in the traditional industries sector. This time, their collective effort is to weave out unique designs in silk which have caught the fancy of a prominent clientele across the State.

    Thiruvananthapuram Silks, under the tutelage of the Thiruvananthapuram Taluk Integrated Silk Handloom Weavers Cooperative Society, has emerged as one of the popular brands in the silk circuit of Kerala. Launched during the tenure of the previous LDF government, it is successfully celebrating its second Onam this year.

    The society aims at rehabilitating cotton handloom workers, mostly women, who were fading into obscurity for want of jobs and infrastructural facilities. An 18-member consultative committee comprising film personalities and noted fashion designers from different parts of the country are guiding the society on launching fresh designs and products. Ethnic silk boutiques have been planned across the State and the first one, set up at Vellayambalam in the city, has proved to be a major success.

    “A study conducted by the Industries Department states that the per capita consumption of silk is growing like that of gold and that the State has emerged as a potential market for pure silk. These findings emboldened the society to go in for new ventures,” S. Mohanan, Managing Director, Kerala Handloom Silk Consortium, says.

    Instead of indiscreetly flooding the market with products of their choice, the society is banking on the changing tastes and preferences of Keralites. “We are producing exclusive bridal collections for the three major communities in the State. Armed with a wide array of printed, block-printed, and designer saris, we are confident of vying with the established silk producers in the country.

    There is an eclectic collection of silk shirts and ‘mundu's for men, too,” Mr. Mohanan says.

    Beginning anew

    Recollecting the efforts in nurturing the cooperative movement during the past 15 months, Mr. Mohanan says: “Balaramapuram in Thiruvananthapuram and Kannur were the two prime handloom hubs in the State. While the weavers of Balaramapuram excelled in making products to meet routine needs, those in Kannur were concentrating on furnishing and drapery. But the social changes over the years had a direct impact on their livelihoods. The fast-changing fashion trends; flood of power-loom products from Tamil Nadu and Karnataka at much competitive rates; lack of marketing facilities to display their wares; and the lackadaisical attitude of authorities in lending timely assistance rendered the weavers an impoverished lot.”

    “The department decided to redeploy the workforce in silk weaving. It was decided to procure silk yarn from production sources and train the workers,” he adds.

कर्ण और कृष्ण का संवाद - रामधारी सिंह 'दिनकर'

Following is excerpt from poem Rashmirathi written by Ram dhari singh dinkar. Karna reply to Krishna when he told story of his birth and ask him to join pandava side. सुन-सुन कर कर्ण अधीर हुआ, क्षण एक तनिक गंभीर हुआ,  फिर कहा "बड़ी यह माया है, जो कुछ आपने बताया है  दिनमणि से सुनकर वही कथा मैं भोग चुका हूँ ग्लानि व्यथा  मैं ध्यान जन्म का धरता हूँ, उन्मन यह सोचा करता हूँ,  कैसी होगी वह माँ कराल, निज तन से जो शिशु को निकाल  धाराओं में धर आती है, अथवा जीवित दफनाती है?  सेवती मास दस तक जिसको, पालती उदर में रख जिसको,  जीवन का अंश खिलाती है, अन्तर का रुधिर पिलाती है  आती फिर उसको फ़ेंक कहीं, नागिन होगी वह नारि नहीं  हे कृष्ण आप चुप ही रहिये, इस पर न अधिक कुछ भी कहिये  सुनना न चाहते तनिक श्रवण, जिस माँ ने मेरा किया जनन  वह नहीं नारि कुल्पाली थी, सर्पिणी परम विकराली थी  पत्थर समान उसका हिय था, सुत से समाज बढ़ कर प्रिय था  गोदी में आग लगा कर के, मेरा कुल-वंश छिपा कर के  दुश्मन का उसने काम किया, माताओं को बदनाम किया  माँ का पय भी न पीया मैंने, उलटे अभिशाप लिया मैंने  वह तो यशस्विनी बनी रह

एक पुलिसवाले की व्यथा

लोग अक्सर कहते हैं कि पुलिस सही तरीके से क्राइम कंट्रोल नहीं करती है लेकिन पुलिस करे तो करे क्या। उग्र भीड़ को क्राइम कंट्रोल करने पर आधारित एक लघु कथा। उन्मादी भीड़ हाथों में नंगी तलवारें, लाठी, डंडे लिए पागलों की तरह पुलिस वालों को पत्थर मार मार कर खदेड़ रही थी। उसकी पुलिस भीड़ से अपना असलाह और खुद को बचाते हुए पीछे हट रही थी। थानेदार का सर बुरी तरह फूट गया दो सिपाही उसे सँभालते हुए पीछे हट रहे थे बड़े अफसर, एस डी ऍम, सब मौके से गायब थे। ऑर्रडर देने वाला कोई दूर दूर तक नहीं था। भीड़ हावी होती जा रही थी। सब को कहीं न कही चोट लगी थी।भीड़ को लाठी डंडो से काबू करने के हालात तो बिलकुल भी नहीं थे। सबकी जान पर बनी हुई थी परंतु हाथ में लोड राइफल होते हुए भी जवान गोली चलाने से बच रहे थे, कैसी कायर स्तिथि थी। अचानक हवलदार बुधना को भीड़ ने पकड़ लिया और एक आदमी ने बुधना के सर पर कैरोसिन की गैलन उंडेल दी और दूसरे ने माचिस निकाली ही थी की धाँय की आवाज हुई और माचिस वाला जमीं पर लुढकने लगा।दूसरी आवाज में तेल के गैलन वाला जमीं पर कला बाजी खा रहा था । भीड़ जहां थी वहीँ थम गयी और उलटे पावँ भागने लगी लेकिन......अ

Scheme for creation of National Optical Fiber Network for Broadband connectivity of Panchayats

The Union Cabinet recently approved a scheme for creation of a National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN) for providing Broadband connectivity to Panchayats. The objective of the scheme is to extend the existing optical fiber network which is available up to district / block HQ’s level to the Gram Panchayat level initially by utilizing the Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF). The cost of this initial phase of the NOFN scheme is likely to be about Rs.20,000 crore. A similar amount of investment is likely to be made by the private sector complementing the NOFN infrastructure while providing services to individual users. In economic terms, the benefits from the scheme are expected through additional employment, e-education, e-health, e-agriculture etc. and reduction in migration of rural population to urban areas. As per a study conducted by the World Bank, with every 10% increase in broadband penetration, there is an increase in GDP growth by 1.4%. NOFN will also facilitate implemen
