pertaining to Rajasthan.
He said that the country
is one but the centre acts
in the context of BJP or
Congress. Reacting on
BJP Mahila Morcha’s
protest in Jaipur, he said
that those who called Ra-
jasthan ‘Rapistan’ have
insulted the state.
“It does not suit the
BJP to hurt the honor of
any state for its personal
interests,” he said.
He said that BJP lead-
ers who called Rajasthan
‘Rapistan’ should learn
about Rajasthan’s histo-
ry, respect and bravery.
Khachariyawas also
demanded an apology
from the BJP leaders
over the issue.

odiji invited me to the
Kutch festival through
Tourism EME and we
were asked to stay in the
VIP enclosure. When we
reached Kutch, we were
taken aback to see the developments in the
handicrafts industry. It was just remarkable.
We reached a village and it was a Muslim
dominated area. I got a chance to interact
with the people there and I asked them “So
what do you think about Modiji?” Their
response surprised me though I was sure
that they would say something very posi-
tive about our PM.
The first reaction to my question was
“Modiji is like God to us!” When I asked
them to tell me in detail about their experi-
ences, they recalled the time when Kutch
was hit by the earthquake. “When the
earthquakestruck,allthepundits,maulvis
- they deserted us. We had no food and
we were dying of starvation. Modiji ar-
rived at the scene himself and the idea
oftheKutchFestivalwasimplemented.
ThiswasModiji’sinitiativeashewant-
ed to develop the area. Also, he came
up with the idea of interest free loans
and encouraged the establishment of
factories. He assured people of In-
come Tax rebates. Not just this, he
got something from Israel that
helped in the growth of grass in
our region when it rained and we
were saved from imminent
death.” They further shared
with me that Modiji did not
indulge in any publicity and
simply got on war-footing
to implement relief meas-
ures in order to save our
lives. He stayed with us and
supervised all the relief activi-
ties at the grassroots level and
from very close quarters.
“Modiji is a leader whose
heart pains to witness the ag-
ony of the poor and the suf-
fering. His love for people is
beyond the distinctions of
caste and religion. Be it
Hindu or Muslim or Chris-
tian, he looks after every-
one and makes sure that
the best is done for them,
especially in times of
crisis.”
Another big thing that Modiji did for
our people was the introduction of eVisa.
For the last 20 years, we had been propos-
ing and recommending the introduction of
this facility to the Congress Government.
But that did not happen. We then put for-
ward our demand to the BJPand it was Mr
Arun Jaitley who came forward to discuss
this with us. We knew each other well, in
fact we knew each other from college. So
while he was preparing the budget, he in-
vited me home and asked me “Tell me
what can I do for tourism?”
I immediately suggested service tax and
e-visa and told him that I had already ap-
pealed for the same to Modiji. He asked me
whatIthoughtweretheadvantagesofeVisa.
I told him that with the induction of eVisa,
thenumberoftouristswouldincreasedrasti-
cally, at least by a million. To this, I remem-
ber, he responded that this was Home Min-
istry’s job. But I drove my point home and
toldhimthatunlessheallottedthenecessary
budget for this, how would the Home Min-
istry implement it? Then he agreed to my
proposal and said that he would speak with
PM Modi and the Home Minister regarding
this. Well, within a week’s time, I got this
confirmation from him that he would be an-
nouncing eVisa in the upcoming budget.
Now if you look at it carefully, you will
realize that the amount of corruption that
was considered to be an integral part of the
process has been curtailed to a great extent.
Thereusedtobebrokerswaitingtorobpeo-
ple of their money and get them India Visa.
Today a full stop has been put to all of this.
When I heard PM Modi’s speech from the
Lal Quila, my heart was filled with joy and
pride. He spoke about the 5 Ts such as tour-
ism, technology and ever since, I have ob-
served that PM Modi has been giving tour-
ism a big push and has also been promoting
the industry in his speeches.
In one of his recent speeches, PM Modi
mentioned that if all the Indians got families
from other countries to visit India - be it
brown, or yellow or white or black, this in-
flux of tourists would give a big boost to the
tourism industry and poverty would be miti-
gated.Intoday’sglobaleconomy,agriculture
hasbeenmechanized,employmenthasgone
down, computerization has increased mani-
fold. One out of 9 jobs have been created in
tourismindustry.Nowhowisitlabourinten-
sive? You come to the airport and you need
a porter, then you need an immigration of-
ficer, in the hotel you need a bell boy who
can carry your luggage, you need the entire
staffforyourlaundry,housekeeping,aircon-
ditioning, refrigeration, vegetable and gro-
cery vendors, for your meals etc. So this has
a multiplier effect on the economy and this
isModiji’svisionwhenwetalkaboutdomes-
tic tourism in this country.
The first time I met Modiji, he showed
us the convention centre in Gujarat and it
was in a very poor condition. If it was an-
other CM, he would have sat on it. But
because it was CM Modi, he took instant
action and gave us firm orders that a world
class convention centre be done up in Gu-
jarat! Such is the leadership of PM Modi
- he wants good work done and in real fast
time, with perfection.

Devendra Fadnavis: The Political Maestro
n the complex
and ever-evolv-
ing world of
politics, there are indi-
viduals who possess ex-
ceptional political acu-
men and strategic prow-
ess. One such leader who
has consistently show-
cased his astuteness is
Devendra Fadnavis, the
current Deputy CM of
Maharashtra  a promi-
nent figure in BJP. Fad-
navis’s recent triumphs in
engineering splits within
the NCP  Shiv Sena
have propelled him to
new heights, positioning
him as Maharashtra’s
most influential political
leader, overshadowing
even seasoned veterans
like Sharad Pawar  Ud-
dhav Thackeray.
Strategic Mastermind
Devendra Fadnavis has
consistently proven him-
self as a strategic mas-
termind, capable of
reading the political
landscape and capitaliz-
ing on opportunities. His
ability to engineer splits
within opposing parties
is a testament to his tac-
tical brilliance. By or-
chestrating a split in the
NCP, Fadnavis has out-
maneuvered Sharad Pa-
war, a seasoned political
warhorse  a respected
leader in Maharashtra.
This feat has further so-
lidified Fadnavis’s posi-
tion as the master strate-
gist of the state.
Victory over the NCP
The recent split within
the NCP, with prominent
leader Eknath Shinde
joining the BJP in 2022,
is a clear victory for De-
vendra Fadnavis. This
move has severely under-
mined the NCP’s strength
and left them in a state of
disarray. Fadnavis’s abil-
ity to win over influential
leaders from rival parties
is a testament to his per-
suasive skills and his ca-
pacity to build broad-
based coalitions. By suc-
cessfully dismantling the
opposition and weaken-
ing its core, Fadnavis has
showcased his excep-
tional political acumen.
Demise of Thackeray
led Shiv Sena
Fadnavis has also cut to
size the Shiv Sena and its
former leader Uddhav
Thackeray. By convinc-
ing Eknath Shinde to
switch allegiances and
join the BJP, Fadnavis left
the Shiv Sena with virtu-
ally nothing. This strate-
gicmaneuverhasnotonly
fractured the once formi-
dable Shiv Sena but also
highlighted Fadnavis’s
ability to exploit divisions
within rival parties for his
own political gain.

  • 4. odiji invited me to the Kutch festival through Tourism EME and we were asked to stay in the VIP enclosure. When we reached Kutch, we were taken aback to see the developments in the handicrafts industry. It was just remarkable. We reached a village and it was a Muslim dominated area. I got a chance to interact with the people there and I asked them “So what do you think about Modiji?” Their response surprised me though I was sure that they would say something very posi- tive about our PM. The first reaction to my question was “Modiji is like God to us!” When I asked them to tell me in detail about their experi- ences, they recalled the time when Kutch was hit by the earthquake. “When the earthquakestruck,allthepundits,maulvis - they deserted us. We had no food and we were dying of starvation. Modiji ar- rived at the scene himself and the idea oftheKutchFestivalwasimplemented. ThiswasModiji’sinitiativeashewant- ed to develop the area. Also, he came up with the idea of interest free loans and encouraged the establishment of factories. He assured people of In- come Tax rebates. Not just this, he got something from Israel that helped in the growth of grass in our region when it rained and we were saved from imminent death.” They further shared with me that Modiji did not indulge in any publicity and simply got on war-footing to implement relief meas- ures in order to save our lives. He stayed with us and supervised all the relief activi- ties at the grassroots level and from very close quarters. “Modiji is a leader whose heart pains to witness the ag- ony of the poor and the suf- fering. His love for people is beyond the distinctions of caste and religion. Be it Hindu or Muslim or Chris- tian, he looks after every- one and makes sure that the best is done for them, especially in times of crisis.” Another big thing that Modiji did for our people was the introduction of eVisa. For the last 20 years, we had been propos- ing and recommending the introduction of this facility to the Congress Government. But that did not happen. We then put for- ward our demand to the BJPand it was Mr Arun Jaitley who came forward to discuss this with us. We knew each other well, in fact we knew each other from college. So while he was preparing the budget, he in- vited me home and asked me “Tell me what can I do for tourism?” I immediately suggested service tax and e-visa and told him that I had already ap- pealed for the same to Modiji. He asked me whatIthoughtweretheadvantagesofeVisa. I told him that with the induction of eVisa, thenumberoftouristswouldincreasedrasti- cally, at least by a million. To this, I remem- ber, he responded that this was Home Min- istry’s job. But I drove my point home and toldhimthatunlessheallottedthenecessary budget for this, how would the Home Min- istry implement it? Then he agreed to my proposal and said that he would speak with PM Modi and the Home Minister regarding this. Well, within a week’s time, I got this confirmation from him that he would be an- nouncing eVisa in the upcoming budget. Now if you look at it carefully, you will realize that the amount of corruption that was considered to be an integral part of the process has been curtailed to a great extent. Thereusedtobebrokerswaitingtorobpeo- ple of their money and get them India Visa. Today a full stop has been put to all of this. When I heard PM Modi’s speech from the Lal Quila, my heart was filled with joy and pride. He spoke about the 5 Ts such as tour- ism, technology and ever since, I have ob- served that PM Modi has been giving tour- ism a big push and has also been promoting the industry in his speeches. In one of his recent speeches, PM Modi mentioned that if all the Indians got families from other countries to visit India - be it brown, or yellow or white or black, this in- flux of tourists would give a big boost to the tourism industry and poverty would be miti- gated.Intoday’sglobaleconomy,agriculture hasbeenmechanized,employmenthasgone down, computerization has increased mani- fold. One out of 9 jobs have been created in tourismindustry.Nowhowisitlabourinten- sive? You come to the airport and you need a porter, then you need an immigration of- ficer, in the hotel you need a bell boy who can carry your luggage, you need the entire staffforyourlaundry,housekeeping,aircon- ditioning, refrigeration, vegetable and gro- cery vendors, for your meals etc. So this has a multiplier effect on the economy and this isModiji’svisionwhenwetalkaboutdomes- tic tourism in this country. The first time I met Modiji, he showed us the convention centre in Gujarat and it was in a very poor condition. If it was an- other CM, he would have sat on it. But because it was CM Modi, he took instant action and gave us firm orders that a world class convention centre be done up in Gu- jarat! Such is the leadership of PM Modi - he wants good work done and in real fast time, with perfection.

His love for people is beyond the distinctions of caste and religion. Be it Hindu or Muslim or Christian, he looks after everyone and makes sure that the best is done for them, especially in times of crisis You read PART 45 on JUNE 29, 2023 eVISA: MODI’S INITIATIVE FOR TOURISM GROWTH IN INDIA Big thing that Modiji did for our people was the introduction of eVisa. For the last 20 years, we had been proposing and recommending the introduction of this facility to the Congress Government. But that did not happen. We had then put forward our demand to the BJP and it was Mr Arun Jaitley who came forward to discuss this with us. We knew each other well, in fact we knew each other from college. So while he was preparing the budget, he invited me home and asked me “Tell me what can I do for tourism?” “MODIJI’S IDEA OF KUTCH FESTIVAL SAVED OUR LIVES!” The first reaction to my question was “Modiji is like God to us!” When I asked them to tell me in detail about their experiences, they recalled the time when Kutch was hit by the earth- quake. “When earthquake struck, all pundits, maulvis - they deserted us. We had no food and we were dying of starvation. Modiji arrived at the scene himself and the idea of the Kutch Festival was implement- ed. This was Modiji’s initiative as he wanted to develop the area. Also, he came up with idea of interest free loans and encouraged estab- lishment of factories. He assured people of Income Tax rebates.  Vol 5  Issue No. 30  RNI NO. RAJENG/2019/77764. Printed and published by Anita Hada Sangwan on behalf of First Express Publishers.

INDIA www.firstindia.co.in firstindia.co.in/epapers/jaipur thefirstindia thefirstindia thefirstindia 05 Jaipur, Thursday | July 6, 2023 Agencies New Delhi The 10 convicts in the 2019TabrezAnsarilynch- ing case were on Wednes- day sentenced to 10-year imprisonment under Sec- tion 304 (culpable homi- cide not amounting to murder) of the Indian Pe- nal Code (IPC). Thequantumofpunish- ment in the case was pro- nounced by the Seraikela court in Jharkhand, which also imposed a fine of Rs 15,000 on the convicts. Earlier on June 27, the court had convicted the 10 accused and public prosecutor Ashok Kumar Rai had said the quantum of punishment in the case would be pronounced on July5.Oneoftheaccused, Kushal Mahali, had died during the course of the trial, Rai said, adding that 2otherswereacquittedfor lack of evidence. Devendra Fadnavis: The Political Maestro n the complex and ever-evolv- ing world of politics, there are indi- viduals who possess ex- ceptional political acu- men and strategic prow- ess. One such leader who has consistently show- cased his astuteness is Devendra Fadnavis, the current Deputy CM of Maharashtra a promi- nent figure in BJP. Fad- navis’s recent triumphs in engineering splits within the NCP Shiv Sena have propelled him to new heights, positioning him as Maharashtra’s most influential political leader, overshadowing even seasoned veterans like Sharad Pawar Ud- dhav Thackeray. Strategic Mastermind Devendra Fadnavis has consistently proven him- self as a strategic mas- termind, capable of reading the political landscape and capitaliz- ing on opportunities. His ability to engineer splits within opposing parties is a testament to his tac- tical brilliance. By or- chestrating a split in the NCP, Fadnavis has out- maneuvered Sharad Pa- war, a seasoned political warhorse a respected leader in Maharashtra. This feat has further so- lidified Fadnavis’s posi- tion as the master strate- gist of the state. Victory over the NCP The recent split within the NCP, with prominent leader Eknath Shinde joining the BJP in 2022, is a clear victory for De- vendra Fadnavis. This move has severely under- mined the NCP’s strength and left them in a state of disarray. Fadnavis’s abil- ity to win over influential leaders from rival parties is a testament to his per- suasive skills and his ca- pacity to build broad- based coalitions. By suc- cessfully dismantling the opposition and weaken- ing its core, Fadnavis has showcased his excep- tional political acumen. Demise of Thackeray led Shiv Sena Fadnavis has also cut to size the Shiv Sena and its former leader Uddhav Thackeray. By convinc- ing Eknath Shinde to switch allegiances and join the BJP, Fadnavis left the Shiv Sena with virtu- ally nothing. This strate- gicmaneuverhasnotonly fractured the once formi- dable Shiv Sena but also highlighted Fadnavis’s ability to exploit divisions within rival parties for his own political gain.

IN POWER CORRIDORS ‘Tug of war’between two IAS for the post of Chairman of Warehousing Corporation! Rajendra Chhabra Jaipur he post of the Chairman of Warehousing Corporation is lying va- cant for the past 50 days and the decision in this regard has not been taken as the matter has become ‘unsolvable’. The fact is that two IAS have staked their claims to this post. The file in this regard is with Agriculture Minis- ter Lalchand Kataria and it is him, who has to take the final decision. One of the ‘claimants’ to the chair of Chairman is Principal Secretary, Agriculture - Prithviraj, and the second claimant is MD of Corporation - MP Meena. Both the of- ficials were transferred to their current position on the same day, through the May 15 IAS transfer list. From year 2019 to 2021, Pawan Kumar Goyal was the CMD of the Corporation and af- ter him, Principal Secre- tary, Agriculture be- came the Chairman and another officer was ap- pointed MD. But when Prithvi Raj was given the reins of the depart- ment through the trans- fer list of May 15 in place of Dinesh Kumar, he was not appointed as Chairman. Through the same list MP Meena was appointed as MD of Corporation, but he too was not appointed as Chairman and thus the post of Chairman fell vacant. Now a ‘tug of war’has ensued between Prithvi Raj and MP Meena for the chair of Chairman and lobbies are active behind both the officials. In fact, there are some commercial firms too that are lobbying for the officials! A suggestion has been given to the state government that the minister himself should become Chair- man, amidst the ongoing tussle between the two officials. However, such a development has never happened in the Corpo- ration’s history. The bureaucratic and political circles are ea- gerly awaiting as to who will become the Chair- man of this huge and im- portant Corporation?

  • 10. n case, though I doubt that you have not seen Mr India YET, you should! Watch it as it is the first actual Superhero movie and the first sci-fi of Bollywood has a brilliant concept and endlessly quot- able dialogues, The movie is excellently directed by Shek- har Kapur who draws mag- nificent performances from all the actors. Watch this movie for Sride- vi, who gives one of her best performances. Mr India was screened on 23 June 2018, the London Indian Film Festival screened it as a tribute to her, after her tragic demise. She plays her character of a nosy journalist (all journalists are nosy, actually) with a ‘joie de vivre’ where she holds the movie together. The first mis- understanding scene withAnil Kapoor shows vibrant chemis- try between the two stars. Her comic timing is perfect; you will remember for years how she gives tips to the goons (who have kidnapped her and are torturing her) to catch the ‘invisible’Mr India who is at- tempting to rescue her. Sri is all heart as she turns around to open up to make a place for the orphaned children under the care of her landlord Anil. She is believable as the belle in love with a man who is invisible and you will never ever for- get her as the hot sensuous Diva who croons Kaate nahin Kat te. She is cutely memorable in Karte hain hum pyaar Mr India se in her super matching ensembles and her expressions will leave you spellbound in Hawa Ha- wai. Her Charlie Chaplin scene as well as the Cockroach scene will leave you in splits, she is simply amazing. Watch Mr India for…well for Mr India i.e. Anil Kapoor as the person who gets the sci- ence to become invisible and used it for the public good, the opposite of his real easy-going persona. Anil as the ‘father’to a host of orphaned children givesawonderfullyunderrated performance where he is the perfect foil to Sridevi and yes, Mogambo too.The song Zind- agi ki yahi reet hai is my fa- vourite from the movie and it is actually a lesson for life. Watch Mr India for the adorable kids who can actu- ally act and emote. Of course, you will keep on having flash- es of Bhramchari (Shammi Kapoor with a host of or- phans) and a bit of Parichay but you will connect to them. Watch the movie for Mogambo so that you can go around for a month mouth- ing ‘Mogambo Khush hua’ at the slightest pretext, you can, of course, threaten your friends so that they can do the Hail Mogambo! salute every time they see you, I did! Amrish Puri was an iconic villain with his dialogue, ex- pressions especially the eye- roll in spite, yes ‘inspite’ of the Barbie doll hairstyle with golden locks and the band- baaja costume. In fact, all the scenes with the villains, big and small were hilarious. Mr India is watchable for Calendar, where Satish Kau- shik who was also the assis- tant director of the movie plays the best Man-Friday. You will also remember, with a smile,Annu Kapoor the Editor who is harassed con- tinuously by wrong number calls on his landline which is hilariously handled and also by a super-energetic Sridevi. The scene where she finally brings him face-to-face … I mean as to the non-face of in- visible Mr India is really funny and you will love the gleeful expression on Sri’s face. For me, well, Mr India is Sridevi’s film all the way!Yes, Anil Kapoor gives a stellar performance, there cannot be a more menacing villain than Amrish Puri, Satish Kaushik as Calendar andAnnu Kapoor as the eccentric is eminently watchable and the children are super-cute BUT Sridevi sets the screen on fire every single time she comes on it. With her excellent comic timing, sex appeal, expressions, dialogue delivery, her sheer exuber- ance, she breathes life into every scene. Thisweekend…MrIndia!

Overall a good day. firstindia.co.in firstindia.co.in/epapers/jaipur thefirstindia thefirstindia thefirstindia 10 higher power may create man. But it is upon man to find his purpose. The tragic truth how- ever is that most people go through their entire lives and pass on to the other realm without having explored, sought, found or followed their true purpose. Their soul’s passion. Their inner calling. Let us first examine what happens if one does not identify and/or pursue this purpose. Does it even make any difference? After all, is the point of life not to make a decent living, raise a family responsibly, and walk qui- etly into the sunset? In my view, these are all wonderfully idealistic and practical goals. Having said that, I also profoundly believe that each individual has been created and placed on this good earth for a very specific function. A reason that is part of a larger scheme. A good scheme. One that we do not and can- not know about; our individual parts in that grand construct however, I feel, we are duty-bound to search for. Duty-bound because each of us is extremely valuable. The place and space we occupy on this planet, be- ing born human and not another ‘lesser’ species, puts us in a position of great privilege but also of im- mense responsibility. After all, Gan- dhi could easily have stayed a suc- cessful lawyer/barrister, made a handsome livelihood and sailed through life comfortably. Van Gough could have understandably suc- cumbed to his disability and paled into oblivion. These people sought, found, and chose, very consciously, despite insurmountable odds, to play out their intrinsically inherited larger roles.And is it not absolutely a bless- ing that they did? The phrase charity begins at home, I find, at this juncture, to be a most effective way of describing the im- portance of this search for one’s true meaning in one’s individual life. For it is only upon this search, its find- ings, and in doggedly chasing those findings for life, that one brings true contentment and happiness to the self. People may be doing fabulously ‘well’ in life. Ever so often though, we hear of them facing physical ail- ments, psychological woes such as depression, or just being plain frus- trated and deeply dissatisfied, un- happy people. This happens simply because if as individuals we do not actualize, we cannot possibly be of any good or use to anyone or any- thing else.Afulfilled person only can hope to bolster and fulfil another. While it is effortless for me to ser- monize and romanticize this entire follow your purpose and passion ide- ology; it is not always a straight path to discovering one’s true intent. There are several factors, particu- larly extraneous, that, from the mo- ment someone is born, consciously or unconsciously condition, sup- press, censor, gag, judge, label, shame, and muzzle that individual. In turn, that individual too, experi- ences a very subliminal yet real dis- connect from people and from him- self/herself. Particularly today, as an Educator interacting with thousands of students and parents; I can, at the omnipresent risk of being an outcast say (for speaking my mind) in a country that claims its title as the mother of democracy and the protec- tor of such concepts like Freedom of Expression; we do not have an envi- ronment that is conducive to indi- viduality and self-expression. There are a few important factors to be aware of whilst embarking on this journey. In order to introspect and undertake an inward journey towards excavating one’s passions and pur- pose, one needs to be supported by friends, family and society. Students need to be given liberty by their par- ents and schools. Others older ought not to be pronounced whimsical and/ or confused, in some cases, ostracized even! Second, the individual himself or herself needs to be thick-skinned. Third, one needs to be aware that these realizations and discoveries can sometimes come by way of happy ac- cidents, at any point, age or stage in life. Fourth, one’s passions and pur- poses do not come with a legally bind- ing life-long guarantee. That they can have expiry dates in lieu of different purposes at various stages because we are dynamic, evolving people. I have no qualms about citing my own life as an example. Until I was in high school, I wanted to only be a musician. Through college and work life initially, I decided to be a film- maker and went and studied film- making direction, then worked in the movies for a decade. Then I dis- covered when most said I was simply ‘insane’ for forsaking a well-set me- dia career, that I loved to teach. At 32, with no training, I began to teach. And now, at 42, eleven years hence, my newfound purpose, as a direct consequence of my own mental health struggles, depression, cancer, and continually benefitting from therapy, is my mental health initia- tives platform, that I tirelessly yet happily dedicate half of my day too, alongside my teaching. That at the ripe old age of 42, I also released my first track as a Singer- Songwriter. That I am putting togeth- er a collection of my Poetry into my first book. Most of these pursuits seem crazy to society, which is sim- ply unable to shoehorn me into a specifically labelled box. That I re- fuse to be boxed, makes people in- tensely uncomfortable. My purpose, however, isn’t to unnerve society. I have too many infinitely more press- ing missions, each one, making me dizzy with true inner contentment. Purpose then, I have come to real- ize, might be planted by a higher power into the grand construct of life. But it is man’s duty to locate and live it! Man-Made! Man-Made!
