Understanding Hinduism Vs Hindutva

In recent times, the idea of Hindutva being tagged as ‘Hinduistic’ in behavior has surfaced. However, both are completely different concepts and cannot be put on the same pedestal. It’s crucial to understand the difference between the two. Hinduism is one of the oldest religions in the world. As noted leader and thinker, Shashi Tharoor says, “Hinduism is ‘Anant’. It has neither a beginning nor an end.” Swami Vivekanand’s speech at the ‘World Parliament of Religions’

Is Delhi ready for BS-VI fuel?

For the past two winters, Delhi has witnessed high smog levels owing to vehicular pollution & crop-burning.

Indira Gandhi the environmentalist!

When we talk about India’s only female Prime Minister till date, what comes to our mind? Emergency, ‘Garibi Hatao Andolan‘, 1971 Bangladesh War, Operation Bluestar etc. But it is surprising to note that Indira Gandhi was also a lover of nature. She was a lover of mountains, of tranquil seas and of beautiful birds that roamed India in all their grace & magnanimity. Indian National Congress (INC) member Jairam Ramesh in his book ‘Indira Gandhi: A life

प्रदुषण से चाहिए आज़ादी!

“जंगल-जंगल पता चला है, चड्डी पहेन के फूल खिला है”। मोगली और उसके जंगली दोस्तों के कारनामों से भरा यह गाना आज भी मन को उसी तरह भाता है जैसा यह आज से तकरीबन 20 साल भाता था। वाकई मे जंगल का दृश्य अध्बुध है। प्रकृति का यह अनमोल तोफा ना जाने मनुष्य को कितने सदियों से जीवित रख रहा है। लेकिन दुःख की बात है की लालच और क्रूरता मे लुप्त मानव ने वन-वातावरण

Captain Fantastic will leave you fantasising for more!

Whenever I used to read about Robinson Crusoe and his long and adventurous stay in an island for close to 28 years, it used to fill me with wonder. Imagine living away from civilization, technology and people for close to 3 decades! Well, on one side, it’s quite scary but on another side, if one has the guts and a strong attitude, then the experience is nothing less than phenomenal. While scavenging through some popular

गरीबी हटायेंगे लेकिन कैसे?

आज ‘अंतर्राष्ट्रीय गरीबी हटाओ दिवस’ है। संयुक्त राष्ट्र ने आज से ठीक पच्चीस साल पहले आज के दिन को इस नेक कार्य के लिए चुना था। पिछली सदी शायद मानवता के लिए सबसे भीषण और दर्दनाक समय रहा है। दो विश्व युद्ध, परमाणु हमलों, ‘कोल्ड वौर’ जैसे संकटमय क्षणों के अलावा कई गुलाम देशों को आज़ादी मिली। अफ्रीका, एशिया और दक्षिण अम्रीका के कई देशों ने स्वतंत्रता की सांस ली। लेकिन इसी स्वतंत्रता के साथ

खाना वाकई मे खज़ाना है!

बचपन मे जब मैं खाना नष्ट करता था, तो मेरे परिवार वाले मुझे डांटते और कहते कि,“अन्न नष्ट करने का मतलब है किसी दुसरे को खाने से वांछित करना”। चूँकि मैं छोटा था, मुझे इसका मतलब समझ नहीं आया। जब मैं थोड़ा बड़ा हुआ और दुनिया दारी की मुझे समझ होने लगी, तब मुझे इस कथन का तात्पर्य पूर्ण रूप से समझ मे आया। अब मेरी कोशिश हमेशा से यही रहती है की यदि मैंने

Eating Ecologically, Saving Sustainably

Lush green fields filled with crops swirling thanks to the gentle breeze. The happy farmer who’s confident that he’ll get good money for his crops. A population consuming organic food that isn’t chock full of dangerous poisons. Agriculture turning humane and eco-friendly. Sounds idyllic, isn’t it? But it’s not something un-achievable.   In fact, if one were to take India’s history into perspective, organic agriculture is something that was traditionally followed. But with a gargantuan
