TREE FOR HARMONY 16 SEP (World Ozone Layer Day) - 21 SEP (World Peace Day)

TREE FOR HARMONY  16 SEP (World Ozone Layer Day) - 21 SEP (World Peace Day) -A South Asian Initiative for Peace, Harmony & Environment We aim to initiate friendship, brotherhood and peace in the entire South Asia. And for this, we turn to "our evergreen friends" – trees. What can be more symbolic of these values than a tree? A tree grows freely, digs its roots deeply and also gives life to other trees. It is a symbol of stability, growth and prosperity. A tree also grows freely, without any discrimination. And this is the message that we want to send. Like trees, we should do away with barriers of caste, religion, ethnicity and national boundaries. Like trees, we should grow together. So this event has a national as well as international essence to it. Mission Bhartiyam proposes "Tree for harmony" event to be held in schools across South Asia. In the event, trees labeled as "harmony trees" will be planted by students. Any


HUMAN CHAIN FOR UNITY AND HARMONY at 5:30 PM INDIA GATE Respected friends, We were all sitting in our homes relaxed when a part of India was burning but then the flames also started spreading in other parts of India. We are talking about the tragic situation in Assam which ultimately send heat waves across India by forcing the North eastern people to flee back to their native places. The Assam riots had began as a clash between the natives and the settlers and then a  debate between natives and illegal immigrants from Bangladesh in North East and ultimately, got a communal flavor. There were rumours across the country threatening to attack north eastern people and forcing them to go back to their native places. We, as citizens of this country and as human beings, condemn this. We condemn the shock, the pain, the terror that the North Eastern people have to face. We also condemn these riots and violence in all forms.   We empathise with the people of Nor

Bharat-Nepal Paraspar Samvad Yatra

17 th -18 th August Kushinagar(India) to Lumbini(Nepal) India and Nepal are the two countries in South Asian which truly reflects what being a “South Asian” can mean. With the border that allows people to move freely, it sends out a message of peace, harmony, love and most importantly, trust. This bond, not boundary, also promotes and protects basic human rights and human desire to communicate, interact and travel for the hope of a better life. Mission Bhartiyam would like to celebrate this bond and send a message to SAARC that such a bond of trust can be extended in the entire South Asian region. For this, Mission Bhartiyam has decided to organize a ‘Bharat- Nepal Paraspar Samvad Yatra’ on 17-18 August from Kushinagar (India) to Lumbini (Nepal) to celebrate this bond and also to send a message that this bond of trust can also be extended in the entire SAARC region. We have chosen Kushinagar and Lumbini because they are Buddhist sites of pilgrimage because that is one of the

Bharat-Nepal Paraspar Samvad

Borders are always an issue of conflict. Sometimes, due to the desire of a state to expand its territory, they are important to keep a check and maintain one’s sovereignty and being. Everywhere, we find thick physical lines. But in spite of these forced (forced because the human nature, the human “spirit” does not like such boundaries) boundaries imposed upon us, there boundaries are unable to separate us completely. Still it is true that rivers flow from one to another by crossing boundaries, mountains spread over one to another and so are the emotions of human. In fact, these political boundaries are in a broader view violation of human rights too. It is because, Nature has made no boundaries. ‘We all are born equal and free ‘(stated Universal Declaration of Human Rights) and thus any such restrictions are against human nature. People cross boundaries legally and illegally, sometimes in search of employment, a better education, sometimes in search of a safe haven, in hope of a b

Dear Firends,   We believe that in the country like India, where harmony and unity among diversity is the basic feature of society and where non violence, peace and love are the values that we learnt since our childhood, its our responsibility to work for the humanity to give efforts towards social integration and to make our society living and cheerful with the objective of happiness for all, whenever this basic feature of society becomes unbalance.   Now, when the incidents at kosi kalan shocked the people living in this society, we would like to visit kosi kalan with our 10 member delegation as a ' Sadbhavna Dal', just to spread message of humanity and communal harmony. During our day long visit, we will distribute pamphlets (that will give message of peace, non violence and harmony), we will sing songs of love, peace and harmony.    Delegation will include equal numbers of hindu and muslim members  who are working on communal harmony at grass roo

A note on Biomass Energy: Barriers and Pitfalls

  Energy is the key factor on which the economy of the nation is dependent. In a country like India which is a developing country the major dependence of the economy is on industrialization which is in turn dependent on availability of quality power. Indian Power sector has been growing at a good pace but still there has been a significant gap between the demand and supply of electricity. The period post Electricity Act 2003 has witnessed a lot of policy measures from government aimed at providing electricity to all and rationalization of pricing and improvement of efficiency and quality through invoking competition in the sector. Some of the recent highlights of the sector are as follows:     Total Installed Capacity (As on 30.04.2012) :   2,01,637 MW Per Capita Consumption                                  : 783Kwh (Global Average2300 Kwh)   Coal has been the dominant source of supply in India contributing around 65% of the total share in the total inst
