3...2...1....Bungeeeeeeeeeeee

One fine evening after our drill class got over, our ADI sudarshan sir asked our squad to give name for bungee jumping . This event was optional event for us , so it was upto us to do or not to do. A lot many from my sqaud gave name and i am not the one who miss such opportunity. The excitement for bungee started growing from that day onwards.

Days passed on and my group went to mussoorie for ITBP attachment and other group went to rishikesh . The group which went for rishikesh got chance to do bungee first and the news came form my friends that bungee is very scary and lot many people missed it. But whoever did it said that one must do it as it is equally fun to do and is kind of extreme adventure.

On fourth day of trip we met the group who went to rishikesh. They have only one topic to talk , bungee....who did it,who did not ,how to do etc etc. Everyone had atleast one expert advice. My friend Sidharth Sihag told us that do it in first attempt only otherwise it will become very difficult once you come back from platform.Also we were suggested that if at all we are planning to do flying fox we should do it before bunjee because after bunjee jumping flying fox will seem to be like child's play.

So finally the day came. And while in bus crowd was divided in to two type of people , first type was hyperactive and second type was completly silent . Both types are sign of anxiety we all were having. After reaching there we were shown the demo videeos of bungee jumping , flying fox and giant swing . Believe me after seeing demo video my fear increased atleast 10 times.

We all got our weight imprinted on our right hand , behind the palm. I with about 10 other friends went for flying fox first . Experience of flying fox was good but after doing a lot of exercise on mountains of mussoorie flying fox did not created any thrill. When we came back we were told that now bungee jumping will take place after lunch .

Rest of our friends were doing bungee jumping and there was live broadcast of their jumps. While sitting and eating my lunch i saw people doing bunjee. All of my friends(Abhishek Singh,Ashish Bharti and Harkishore rai) whom i saw trying bunjee , done it . Though this gave me confidence , it also increased anxiety .After that we played playing cards for about 45 minutes .

Finally the time of bungee came. My buddy Ankur jain did it very confidently just before me . Now it was my turn , Instructor cross checked all the security arrangements. And asked me how am i feeling . I said i am ok . He asked me to walk to the platform .Since i am very afraid of height, i got very scared when i reached to platform and first thing which i said was that " I am very afraid " . Instructor said ok then come back. I came back and sat on the chair.

A lot of things were going through my mind. Since morning almost everyone have jumped , this created a lot of peer pressure. At that time instrutor said " Ok , it is scary , but it a challange for you  and its upto you to take challenge or not to take ". My frined Aditya pratap singh who was waiting for his turn said " yaar kud jaa neeche hi milenge ab ". I said ok lets go again.I thought i will do it irrespective of degree of fear am going through. I went and i did it within seconds of reaching platform.

And as soon as i jumped , it was like OMG why did i jumped . The feeling of free fall was very scary and it seemed that my heart have stopped beating .I got little relaxed only when effect of bungee rope started. I went compeletly down and then rope pulled my up almost fully , this resulted in another free fall . This process repeated for 3-4 times. Finally when it all stopped they lowered the rope and i landed down.

The feeling was very satisfying :)

Following is the video of my bungee jumping

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

Matribhumi - A Poem by Sohan Lal Dwivedi

Sometimes patriot poems becomes very attractive and fill you with a unique kind of joy , This poem Matribhumi by Sohan Lal Dwivedi ji is one of such poems , read it and enjoy it :) मातृभूमि ऊँचा खड़ा हिमालय आकाश चूमता है, नीचे चरण तले झुक, नित सिंधु झूमता है। गंगा यमुन त्रिवेणी नदियाँ लहर रही हैं, जगमग छटा निराली पग पग छहर रही है। वह पुण्य भूमि मेरी, वह स्वर्ण भूमि मेरी। वह जन्मभूमि मेरी वह मातृभूमि मेरी। झरने अनेक झरते जिसकी पहाड़ियों में, चिड़िया चहक रही हैं, हो मस्त झाड़ियों में। अमराइयाँ घनी हैं कोयल पुकारती है, बहती मलय पवन है, तन मन सँवारती है। वह धर्मभूमि मेरी, वह कर्मभूमि मेरी। वह जन्मभूमि मेरी वह मातृभूमि मेरी। जन्मे जहाँ थे रघुपति, जन्मी जहाँ थी सीता, श्रीकृष्ण ने सुनाई, वंशी पुनीत गीता। गौतम ने जन्म लेकर, जिसका सुयश बढ़ाया, जग को दया सिखाई, जग को दिया दिखाया। वह युद्ध-भूमि मेरी, वह बुद्ध-भूमि मेरी। वह मातृभूमि मेरी, वह जन्मभूमि मेरी।         - Sohan Lal Dwivedi
