New Delhi: Farmer un-
ions agitating against
the three agri laws on
Monday asked the gov-
ernment to fix a date for
the next round of talks,
soon after PM Modi
urged them to end their
stir and invited them to
resume the dialogue.
They, however, objected
to PM’s remarks that a
new “breed” of agita-
tors called “andolan
jivi” has emerged in the
country, and said that
agitation has an impor-
tant role in a democracy
.
Farmer leader & BKU
spokesperson Rakesh
Tikait on Monday reit-
erated that a law is
needed on MSP for
crops, dismissing the
promise made by PM in
Parliament earlier.
“Prime Minister said
‘MSP hai, tha aur rahe-
ga’ today but he did not
say that a law will be
formed on MSP... the
country does not run on
trust. It runs on consti-
tution and law,” he said.
“There will not be
business over hunger in

New Delhi: Prime Min-
ister Narendra Modi on
Monday appealed to
protesting farmers to
end their agitation
against the new farm
laws even as he ques-
tioned Opposition par-
ties for their sudden “U-
turn” on the agricul-
ture sector reforms.
The prime minister
also hit out at those be-
hind the protests, say-
ing a new “breed” of
agitators called “an-
dolan jeevi” has
emerged in the country
who cannot live without
agitation and the nation
should guard against
them. He also said a new
FDI (Foreign Destruc-
tive Ideology) has come
up in the nation and “we
need to be more aware
to save the country from
such ideology”.
“I invite you to come
forward and solve the
problems of the agri-
culture sector by mak-
ing those protesting
against the laws to un-
derstand the reforms...
Let’s move forward to-
gether,” he said.
Defending Centre’s
policies for farmers and
referring to those tak-
ing a “U-Turn” from
laws, PM quoted his
predecessor Manmo-
han Singh who had
once called for making
one single market for
agriculture produce.
“Manmohan Ji is
here, I would read out
his quote. Those taking
a U-Turn (farm laws)
will perhaps agree with
him. ‘There are other
rigidities because of
marketing regime set
up in the 1930s which
prevent our farmers
from selling their pro-
duce where they get the
highest rate of re-
turn...” said PM Modi in
his reply to the Motion
of Thanks on the Presi-
dent’s Address in Rajya
Sabha. “...It is our inten-
tion to remove all those
handicaps, which come
in the way of India real-
ising its vast potential
at one large common
market,” he added.
“Manmohan Singh Ji
had made his inten-
tions clear to give farm-
ers the freedom to sell
their produce, and have
just one market.

DISASTER HANGING GLACIER MAY
HAVE BROKEN FROM MAIN
PART: DRDO SCIENTIST
Chamoli: Defence Research and Development
Organisation (DRDO) scientist Dr LK Sinha on
Monday said that a hanging glacier in Uttara-
khand’s Chamoli may have broken away from the
main glacier which caused damage. Sinha said
that DRDO scientists are analysing the data to
ascertain the cause of glacier burst. “Our team did
an aerial survey of the glacier where the incident
took place in Chamoli. Prima facie, it looks that a
hanging glacier broke away from the main glacier
and came down in the narrow valley,” the DRDO
scientist told ANI. “In the valley, it formed a lake
which burst later and caused the damage. The
data is being analysed by our scientists in detail
and if required, they would again go to get more
details.” The DRDO scientist further said.

he Indian Penal Code IPC
was formed under the Brit-
ish rule that was around
150 years ago, defining
crimes and punishments.
Under the colonial rule,
the laws were made inter-
esting the Britishers only
as such laws helped the
Britishers to govern their
colonies with ample ease.
Though there have been
many amendments over
the years in the IPC there
are still some corners that
need to be looked at once
more and of course, this
should be done by keeping
in mind the values of de-
mocracy and human rights.
The rebuilding of IPC is re-
quired as a large number of
its arrangements have gotten
old with changing financial
turns of events and innova-
tive advances. Wrongdoings
like horde lynching, mone-
tary violations, middle-class
violations, financial wrong-
doings, and so forth, have not
discovered legitimate ac-
knowledgment in the IPC.
There have been numer-
ous revisions to guarantee
that IPC advances with
time, however, it has not
been changed absolutely
since the date of institu-
tion. Albeit certain changes
to the arrangements of IPC
have been made, as upheld
by the choices of the courts.
For instance in the instanc-
es of infidelity and the de-
criminalization of homo-
sexuality. IPC depends on
the obstruction hypothesis
pervasive around then how-
ever the criminal law needs
to move from the obstacle
or distributive hypothesis
to the reformative hypoth-
esis of discipline. A portion
of the progressions that
should be brought are:
	
z A sexually impartial meaning
of assault is required. Seg-
ment 375 of IPC does exclude
men, hijras, and young men
as the casualties of assault
and just thinks about ladies
as survivors of assault.
	
z Dissidence under Section
124 A of the IPC was embed-
ded by the Britishers in 1898
to control the uprisings
against them and to stifle the
opportunity developments.
Nonetheless, as of late, this
part is regularly abused
against individuals who
censure public authority.
	
z Area 57: Life Imprison-
ment as a discipline is at
the prudence of the court
concerning the number of
years. It relies more upon
the idea of the wrongdoing
that has been submitted.
In any case, with regards
to the computation of parts
of the discipline, it is fixed
for a very long time. This
removes the optional force
of an appointed authority
and contrasts emerge after
picking the methodology of
giving disciplines.
	
z Under Section 294, the
demonstration of irritating
somebody by playing out
any profane demonstration
openly puts is culpable. Not-
withstanding, the word ‘vul-
gar’ isn’t characterized under
the Act and this is frequently
abused by the police.
	
z The disciplines gave under
Chapter 3 are a traditional-
ist. It just accommodates
detainment or fine. There is
no notice of local area ad-
ministration or changing the
criminal in any capacity.
EARLIER AMENDMENTS
CRIMINAL
(AMENDMENT) ACT, 2013
The bill presented was addi-
tionally called the counter-
assault bill. The Act was ac-
quainted with making the
assault laws in India tougher.
This correction enlarged the
meaning of assault by includ-
ing oral sex and the penetra-
tion of different items into
ladies’ bodies as wrongdoing.
Thinking about the rising
number of assaults in India
this was a gigantic advance.
Following had likewise been
condemned under this dem-
onstration. It likewise
thought about the catching
and viewing of ladies in a pri-
vate exhibit without wanting
to, to be a wrongdoing.
CRIMINAL
(AMENDMENT) ACT, 2018
This Act was assisted to rein-
force the assault laws. The
quantum of discipline was
expanded from in any event 7
to 10 years. Arrangements for
discipline for assault of a
youngladyunder12yearsand
16 years were added under it.
The insertion of Section
153 A and 509 was made to
counter the racially motivat-
ed crimes. However, this did
not receive support from all
the states to that extent.
ASSESSING THE
POLITICAL AGENDA
BEHIND THE
RESTRUCTURING OF IPC
The Union Home Ministry
proposed the plan to patch up
the IPC, which was presented
duringtheBritishstandardin
India, in light of the “ace
worker” soul. Under the Bu-
reau of Police Research and
Development,apanelhaslike-

tee quick equity and stream-
line lawful strategies. Despite
the fact that the service guar-
anteesthegenuinemotivation
to do this is to guarantee expe-
dient equity and the disentan-
glement of the general set of
laws,onereallywantstothink
if there is any shrouded po-
liticalplanbehindthis.Chang-
es ought to, in this way
, be ex-
posed to popular assessment
before being actualized.
REFORMING THE
CRIMINAL SYSTEM
Numerousresearchersaccept
that the criminal framework
can’t be changed just by redo-
ing the IPC. The usage of the
code ought to likewise be pro-
ficient to guarantee achieve-
ment. IPC can’t be authorized
by similar police structures.
Police changes are required
for the progressions in IPC to
encourage its effective activi-
ty
. We need an adjustment in
the mentality of the police to-
wards complainants, snappy
enrollment of first data re-
ports (FIRs), and quick reac-
tion against wrongdoings. To
change the mentality of the
policetowardstheconveyance

sible HR, nature of examina-
tions, and be more effective.
Furthermore, it ought to be
guaranteed that there is no
outer tension on the police.
Transforming the criminal
equity framework isn’t only a
one-venturemeasure.Redoing
IPC is a significant advance to
modernizethecriminallawof
India and make it as per the
Indian vote based system. The
Britishers utilized IPC for
their potential benefit and to
take care of political dissi-
dents, it depended on the im-
pediment hypothesis. Despite
the fact that redoing IPC will
prompt transforming the
criminal equity framework,
extra changes in the police
structure are likewise re-
quired.Regardlessof whether
IPC is changed, its usage will
be a test that the public au-
thority should survive.
THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY
THE AUTHOR ARE PERSONAL
OBSOLETE LAWS AND
THEIR DUE AMENDMENTS
THE CHANGES REQUIRED IN INDIAN PENAL CODE
T
The Union Home
Ministry proposed
the plan to patch
up the IPC, which
was presented
during the British
standard in India,
in light of the “ace
worker” soul.
Under the Bureau
of Police Research
and Development,
a panel has
likewise been set
up to investigate
the progressions to
be brought. The
plan for the public
authority to
remake this law
which has been in
power for such
countless years is
to satisfy the
popularity-based
desires of the
individuals and to
guarantee quick
equity and
streamline lawful
strategies
TRANSFORMING THE CRIMINAL EQUITY FRAMEWORK
ISN’T ONLY A ONE-VENTURE MEASURE. REDOING IPC IS
A SIGNIFICANT ADVANCE TO MODERNIZE THE CRIMINAL
LAW OF INDIA AND MAKE IT AS PER THE INDIAN VOTE
BASED SYSTEM. THE BRITISHERS UTILIZED IPC FOR
THEIR POTENTIAL BENEFIT AND TO TAKE CARE OF
POLITICAL DISSIDENTS, IT DEPENDED ON THE
IMPEDIMENT HYPOTHESIS. DESPITE THE FACT THAT
REDOING IPC WILL PROMPT TRANSFORMING THE
CRIMINAL EQUITY FRAMEWORK, EXTRA CHANGES IN THE
POLICE STRUCTURE ARE LIKEWISE REQUIRED
MEGHNA
SHARMA
1ST YEAR, BA, LLB LAW
STUDENT FROM MANIPAL
UNIVERSITY JAIPUR
ational youth
poet laureate
Amanda Gor-
man’srecitation
of “The Hill We
Climb,” at Joe Biden’s pres-
identialinaugurationinthe
United States captured the
attention of a nation and
people globally
.
Gorman highlighted the
power of poets in our cur-
rent sociopolitical context
to speak unique and timely
truths, while tapping into
larger literary traditions.
Some commentators were
reminded of the legacy of
Black women poets like
Maya Angelou and Eliza-
beth Alexander who deliv-
ered inaugural poems re-
spectively at Bill Clinton’s
and Barack Obama’s inau-
gurations. The ring Gor-
man wore was a tribute to
Maya Angelou and a gift
from Oprah Winfrey
.
Gorman inspired people
of all ages with the notion
of seeing and being light.
The day after the inaugura-
tion two of her books
topped Amazon’s bestseller
list.
Gorman moved many in
a time of geopolitical un-
certainty and a pandemic
with the power of critical
hope, something that com-
bats hollow positivity. In
the words of educator and
literary theorist Ira Shor,
critical hope asks us to
“challenge the actual in
the name of the possible.”
We are researchers who
have studied how youth
carve out legacies and how
storytelling can teach and
inspire critical hope. What
struck us in hearing Gor-
man speak was how, at the
age of 22, the poet taps into
the power of generativity,
a concept that refers to cre-
ating a legacy that lasts
beyond our lifetimes to
shape future generations.
As she recited: “But one
thing is certain: If we
merge mercy with might,
and might with right, then
love becomes our legacy
and change our children’s
birthright.…”
SHAPING WHO
WE ARE BY THE
STORIES WE TELL
Research repeatedly indi-
cates that adults in their
30s and 40s who are in-
volved in creating some-
thing that will last beyond
their lifetime enjoy a bet-
ter quality of life until
death in many ways. (Par-
enting, teaching, social jus-
tice activism or engaging
in creative projects are
ways of leaving one’s mark
in the world after death.)
Can people in their early
20s already see themselves
carving out a legacy? Gor-
man’s poem suggests the
answer is yes. She reminds
people that what they do
(or don’t do) will shape the
legacy future generations
inherit: “We will not be
turned around or inter-
rupted by intimidation be-
cause we know our inac-
tion and inertia will be the
inheritance of the next
generation.”
Gorman’s poem speaks
to the creative and leader-
ship potential of youth.
Her display of being part
of a lasting legacy reso-
nates with our experiences
and some of our research.
Psychologist Erik Erik-
son popularized the idea
that in middle age many
adults become interested
in leaving a legacy, but
studies have found that
many youth are also inter-
ested in creating some-
thing that lasts beyond
their lifetime.

Ahead of Kerala polls, BJP
promises law against love jihad
Thiruvananthapuram:
Ahead of the upcoming
state Assembly elec-
tions, the Bharatiya
Janata Party (BJP) has
promised to bring an
Uttar Pradesh-like law
against love jihad in
Kerala, if elected to
power.
The BJP state presi-
dent has made it clear
that if they come to
power, NDA will enact
a law against Love Ji-
had.
BJP has highlighted
the events of illegal
and forceful conver-
sions in the state.
The opposition, how-
ever, has slammed the
move and called it an
attempt to polarize.
NCP leader Majeed
Memon stated that Ker-
ala is one of the most
literate states and the
people there believe in
secularism and the
move will not woo the
voters in Kerala.
However, BJP state
President K Surendran
stated that the Love ji-
had is a serious issue
and apart from Hindu
organizations, Chris-
tians are also demand-
ing for the same law.
New Delhi: Defence
Minister Rajnath Singh
on Monday said that 11
Rafale aircraft have ar-
rived in India while the

“11 Rafale aircraft
have arrived in India.
By this March, India
will have 17 Rafale air-
craft. By April 2022, all
Rafale aircraft (the en-
tire batch) will come to
India,” said Singh while
responding to a ques-
tion posed by Bharatiya
Janata Party MP Ma-
hesh Poddar in the Ra-
jya Sabha.
Poddar had asked the
Defence Minister about
how many Rafaels have
come to India, how
many are supposed to
come, and till when they
will be battle-ready
.
The minister also re-
sponded to a question
raised by All India Tri-
namool Congress MP
Dr Santanu Sen on “any
probability of privati-
sation of few aspects of
the Defence in coming
days?” Responding to
his query, Singh said
“We are emphasising
on indigenisation and
have chosen 101 items
that won’t be imported
from other nations but
will be manufactured in
India by Indians.”
Meanwhile, the Lok
Sabha on Monday took
up discussion on mo-
tion of thanks to the
President’s address af-
ter seeing disruptions
over four days last week

mand for separate dis-
cussion on the new
farm laws.
When the House met

Defence Minister Ra-
jnath Singh said that
the House every year
expresses its thanks to
the President for his
address to the joint sit-
ting of two Houses and

RAJENG/2019/77764 l Vol 2 l Issue No. 244 New Delhi: Farmer un- ions agitating against the three agri laws on Monday asked the gov- ernment to fix a date for the next round of talks, soon after PM Modi urged them to end their stir and invited them to resume the dialogue. They, however, objected to PM’s remarks that a new “breed” of agita- tors called “andolan jivi” has emerged in the country, and said that agitation has an impor- tant role in a democracy . Farmer leader & BKU spokesperson Rakesh Tikait on Monday reit- erated that a law is needed on MSP for crops, dismissing the promise made by PM in Parliament earlier. “Prime Minister said ‘MSP hai, tha aur rahe- ga’ today but he did not say that a law will be formed on MSP... the country does not run on trust. It runs on consti- tution and law,” he said. “There will not be business over hunger in the country . Turn to P6 New Delhi: Prime Min- ister Narendra Modi on Monday appealed to protesting farmers to end their agitation against the new farm laws even as he ques- tioned Opposition par- ties for their sudden “U- turn” on the agricul- ture sector reforms. The prime minister also hit out at those be- hind the protests, say- ing a new “breed” of agitators called “an- dolan jeevi” has emerged in the country who cannot live without agitation and the nation should guard against them. He also said a new FDI (Foreign Destruc- tive Ideology) has come up in the nation and “we need to be more aware to save the country from such ideology”. “I invite you to come forward and solve the problems of the agri- culture sector by mak- ing those protesting against the laws to un- derstand the reforms... Let’s move forward to- gether,” he said. Defending Centre’s policies for farmers and referring to those tak- ing a “U-Turn” from laws, PM quoted his predecessor Manmo- han Singh who had once called for making one single market for agriculture produce. “Manmohan Ji is here, I would read out his quote. Those taking a U-Turn (farm laws) will perhaps agree with him. ‘There are other rigidities because of marketing regime set up in the 1930s which prevent our farmers from selling their pro- duce where they get the highest rate of re- turn...” said PM Modi in his reply to the Motion of Thanks on the Presi- dent’s Address in Rajya Sabha. “...It is our inten- tion to remove all those handicaps, which come in the way of India real- ising its vast potential at one large common market,” he added. “Manmohan Singh Ji had made his inten- tions clear to give farm- ers the freedom to sell their produce, and have just one market.

Editor: Anita Hada Sangwan responsible for selection of news under the PRB Act he Indian Penal Code IPC was formed under the Brit- ish rule that was around 150 years ago, defining crimes and punishments. Under the colonial rule, the laws were made inter- esting the Britishers only as such laws helped the Britishers to govern their colonies with ample ease. Though there have been many amendments over the years in the IPC there are still some corners that need to be looked at once more and of course, this should be done by keeping in mind the values of de- mocracy and human rights. The rebuilding of IPC is re- quired as a large number of its arrangements have gotten old with changing financial turns of events and innova- tive advances. Wrongdoings like horde lynching, mone- tary violations, middle-class violations, financial wrong- doings, and so forth, have not discovered legitimate ac- knowledgment in the IPC. There have been numer- ous revisions to guarantee that IPC advances with time, however, it has not been changed absolutely since the date of institu- tion. Albeit certain changes to the arrangements of IPC have been made, as upheld by the choices of the courts. For instance in the instanc- es of infidelity and the de- criminalization of homo- sexuality. IPC depends on the obstruction hypothesis pervasive around then how- ever the criminal law needs to move from the obstacle or distributive hypothesis to the reformative hypoth- esis of discipline. A portion of the progressions that should be brought are: z A sexually impartial meaning of assault is required. Seg- ment 375 of IPC does exclude men, hijras, and young men as the casualties of assault and just thinks about ladies as survivors of assault. z Dissidence under Section 124 A of the IPC was embed- ded by the Britishers in 1898 to control the uprisings against them and to stifle the opportunity developments. Nonetheless, as of late, this part is regularly abused against individuals who censure public authority. z Area 57: Life Imprison- ment as a discipline is at the prudence of the court concerning the number of years. It relies more upon the idea of the wrongdoing that has been submitted. In any case, with regards to the computation of parts of the discipline, it is fixed for a very long time. This removes the optional force of an appointed authority and contrasts emerge after picking the methodology of giving disciplines. z Under Section 294, the demonstration of irritating somebody by playing out any profane demonstration openly puts is culpable. Not- withstanding, the word ‘vul- gar’ isn’t characterized under the Act and this is frequently abused by the police. z The disciplines gave under Chapter 3 are a traditional- ist. It just accommodates detainment or fine. There is no notice of local area ad- ministration or changing the criminal in any capacity. EARLIER AMENDMENTS CRIMINAL (AMENDMENT) ACT, 2013 The bill presented was addi- tionally called the counter- assault bill. The Act was ac- quainted with making the assault laws in India tougher. This correction enlarged the meaning of assault by includ- ing oral sex and the penetra- tion of different items into ladies’ bodies as wrongdoing. Thinking about the rising number of assaults in India this was a gigantic advance. Following had likewise been condemned under this dem- onstration. It likewise thought about the catching and viewing of ladies in a pri- vate exhibit without wanting to, to be a wrongdoing. CRIMINAL (AMENDMENT) ACT, 2018 This Act was assisted to rein- force the assault laws. The quantum of discipline was expanded from in any event 7 to 10 years. Arrangements for discipline for assault of a youngladyunder12yearsand 16 years were added under it. The insertion of Section 153 A and 509 was made to counter the racially motivat- ed crimes. However, this did not receive support from all the states to that extent. ASSESSING THE POLITICAL AGENDA BEHIND THE RESTRUCTURING OF IPC The Union Home Ministry proposed the plan to patch up the IPC, which was presented duringtheBritishstandardin India, in light of the “ace worker” soul. Under the Bu- reau of Police Research and Development,apanelhaslike- wise been set up to investigate theprogressionstobebrought. Theplanforthepublicauthor- ity to remake this law which has been in power for such countlessyearsistosatisfythe popularity-based desires of the individuals and to guaran- tee quick equity and stream- line lawful strategies. Despite the fact that the service guar- anteesthegenuinemotivation to do this is to guarantee expe- dient equity and the disentan- glement of the general set of laws,onereallywantstothink if there is any shrouded po- liticalplanbehindthis.Chang- es ought to, in this way , be ex- posed to popular assessment before being actualized. REFORMING THE CRIMINAL SYSTEM Numerousresearchersaccept that the criminal framework can’t be changed just by redo- ing the IPC. The usage of the code ought to likewise be pro- ficient to guarantee achieve- ment. IPC can’t be authorized by similar police structures. Police changes are required for the progressions in IPC to encourage its effective activi- ty . We need an adjustment in the mentality of the police to- wards complainants, snappy enrollment of first data re- ports (FIRs), and quick reac- tion against wrongdoings. To change the mentality of the policetowardstheconveyance of equity , numerous interior, outer,andunderlyingchanges areadditionallyrequired.The policeneedtorefinetheacces- sible HR, nature of examina- tions, and be more effective. Furthermore, it ought to be guaranteed that there is no outer tension on the police. Transforming the criminal equity framework isn’t only a one-venturemeasure.Redoing IPC is a significant advance to modernizethecriminallawof India and make it as per the Indian vote based system. The Britishers utilized IPC for their potential benefit and to take care of political dissi- dents, it depended on the im- pediment hypothesis. Despite the fact that redoing IPC will prompt transforming the criminal equity framework, extra changes in the police structure are likewise re- quired.Regardlessof whether IPC is changed, its usage will be a test that the public au- thority should survive. THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY THE AUTHOR ARE PERSONAL OBSOLETE LAWS AND THEIR DUE AMENDMENTS THE CHANGES REQUIRED IN INDIAN PENAL CODE T The Union Home Ministry proposed the plan to patch up the IPC, which was presented during the British standard in India, in light of the “ace worker” soul. Under the Bureau of Police Research and Development, a panel has likewise been set up to investigate the progressions to be brought. The plan for the public authority to remake this law which has been in power for such countless years is to satisfy the popularity-based desires of the individuals and to guarantee quick equity and streamline lawful strategies TRANSFORMING THE CRIMINAL EQUITY FRAMEWORK ISN’T ONLY A ONE-VENTURE MEASURE. REDOING IPC IS A SIGNIFICANT ADVANCE TO MODERNIZE THE CRIMINAL LAW OF INDIA AND MAKE IT AS PER THE INDIAN VOTE BASED SYSTEM. THE BRITISHERS UTILIZED IPC FOR THEIR POTENTIAL BENEFIT AND TO TAKE CARE OF POLITICAL DISSIDENTS, IT DEPENDED ON THE IMPEDIMENT HYPOTHESIS. DESPITE THE FACT THAT REDOING IPC WILL PROMPT TRANSFORMING THE CRIMINAL EQUITY FRAMEWORK, EXTRA CHANGES IN THE POLICE STRUCTURE ARE LIKEWISE REQUIRED MEGHNA SHARMA 1ST YEAR, BA, LLB LAW STUDENT FROM MANIPAL UNIVERSITY JAIPUR ational youth poet laureate Amanda Gor- man’srecitation of “The Hill We Climb,” at Joe Biden’s pres- identialinaugurationinthe United States captured the attention of a nation and people globally . Gorman highlighted the power of poets in our cur- rent sociopolitical context to speak unique and timely truths, while tapping into larger literary traditions. Some commentators were reminded of the legacy of Black women poets like Maya Angelou and Eliza- beth Alexander who deliv- ered inaugural poems re- spectively at Bill Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s inau- gurations. The ring Gor- man wore was a tribute to Maya Angelou and a gift from Oprah Winfrey . Gorman inspired people of all ages with the notion of seeing and being light. The day after the inaugura- tion two of her books topped Amazon’s bestseller list. Gorman moved many in a time of geopolitical un- certainty and a pandemic with the power of critical hope, something that com- bats hollow positivity. In the words of educator and literary theorist Ira Shor, critical hope asks us to “challenge the actual in the name of the possible.” We are researchers who have studied how youth carve out legacies and how storytelling can teach and inspire critical hope. What struck us in hearing Gor- man speak was how, at the age of 22, the poet taps into the power of generativity, a concept that refers to cre- ating a legacy that lasts beyond our lifetimes to shape future generations. As she recited: “But one thing is certain: If we merge mercy with might, and might with right, then love becomes our legacy and change our children’s birthright.…” SHAPING WHO WE ARE BY THE STORIES WE TELL Research repeatedly indi- cates that adults in their 30s and 40s who are in- volved in creating some- thing that will last beyond their lifetime enjoy a bet- ter quality of life until death in many ways. (Par- enting, teaching, social jus- tice activism or engaging in creative projects are ways of leaving one’s mark in the world after death.) Can people in their early 20s already see themselves carving out a legacy? Gor- man’s poem suggests the answer is yes. She reminds people that what they do (or don’t do) will shape the legacy future generations inherit: “We will not be turned around or inter- rupted by intimidation be- cause we know our inac- tion and inertia will be the inheritance of the next generation.” Gorman’s poem speaks to the creative and leader- ship potential of youth. Her display of being part of a lasting legacy reso- nates with our experiences and some of our research. Psychologist Erik Erik- son popularized the idea that in middle age many adults become interested in leaving a legacy, but studies have found that many youth are also inter- ested in creating some- thing that lasts beyond their lifetime.

JPC/010/2019-21 Aditi Nagar New Delhi : The dead- lock between the ruling party and the opposi- tion in the Lok Sabha over the Farm Laws, ended on Monday at the initiative of Lok Sabha Speaker, Om Birla. As soon as the Lok Sabha proceedings started at 4 pm, the op- position parties started making noise. Mean- while, Lok Sabha Speaker, Om Birla moved the Question Hour. Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar an- swered questions relat- ed to his ministry . Mem- bers of Congress and DMK shouted slogans demanding repeal of the farm laws, while members of Trinamool Congress and Shiroma- ni Akali Dal also stood at their places. In such a situation, Birla adjourned the proceedings of the House till 5 pm. After this Birla held a meet- ing with the leaders of all parties. The meeting included defence minis- ter Rajnath Singh, Par- liamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi, Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary and leaders from Punjab. At the meeting, on the de- liberations of Birla and an appeal by Rajnath, the leaders of opposi- tion parties agreed to run the house. As soon as the proceedings of the House started at 5 pm, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said that it is everyone’s respon- sibility to run the house smoothly . During the uproar in the House, Lok Sabha Speaker Birla said, “Public has sent you for dialogue and discus- sion. Question hour is the most important time, in which you can ask the government for answers. The public has not sent MPs to Parlia- ment to raise slogans and bring placards. It is not in accordance with parliamentary tradi- tions,” he said.

Meanwhile, Nagaur is considered the ‘head- quarters’ of farmer poli- tics from where Pandit Nehru had initiated the Panchayati Raj. Right before the bypolls, Ra- hul’s visit is seen to be crucial as it would also help the party in swing- ing the votes in its fa- vour. However, the Gan- dhi scion will have to giveamessagenotjustto the people but to his own party members as well, of unity , since it is being said that groupism is rampant in the party as of now.

A ‘tourism bailout package’ for state soon ‘Govt working towards employment generation’ Nirmal Tiwari Jaipur: The govern- ment is serious about bringing the sluggish tourism sector back into the mainstream and strengthening the tourism infrastructure in the state. Prior to the State Budget, on Mon- day, CS Niranjan Arya took a meeting of the concerned departments and discussed various important proposals to revive the tourism sec- tor. During the Corona period in the state, there has been a 90%de- crease in the arrival of domestic tourists and more than 99 % decline in the arrival of foreign tourists. In the meeting, vari- ous proposals were dis- cussed on ‘point by point’ basis and it is be- lieved that a tourism bailout package can be released by discussing these proposals with the CM soon. Notably, tourism ac- counts for 15% of the state’s GDP and has pro- vided employment to about 3 million people in the state. These in- clude 10 lakh direct and 20 lakh indirect employ- ments. The proposal to take tourism in the pri- ority sector was dis- cussed in a meeting chaired by the Chief Secretary wherein, of- ficers from tourism, en- ergy, local bodies, fi- nance and other depart- ments were present. In the meeting, it was pro- posed to give the tour- ism sector the classifica- tion of industry, and thereby extend benefits of industrial rates etc while proposal to extend SGST recharge to tour- ism sector by 31 March was also floated. Issues like 100% exemption in motor vehicle tax, mar- keting promotion of Rajasthan tourism with special focus on domestic tourism, proposal to reg- ulate tourism units oper- ating in residential areas for years were also dis- cussed in meeting. Jaipur: Chairing the 33rd State Empower Committee meeting of the Department of In- dustries on Monday, Chief Secretary Niran- jan Arya said that the State government is constantly working on investment and employ- ment generation in the state and it is included in the government’s pri- ority . The Chief Secretary added further saying that investment in the state is increasing and the state will soon set a new record of devel- opment in this direc- tion. Preps on to provide govt accommodation to 3 former ministers First India Bureau Jaipur: It appears that the Gehlot gov- ernment is going to be ‘kind’ to the three for- mer ministers, in- cluding former depu- ty Chief Minister, re- garding their govern- ment bungalows. Highly placed sources reveal that prepara- tions are going on for the allocation of gov- ernment accommoda- tion to former deputy CM Sachin Pilot and former ministers Vishvendra Singh and Ramesh Meena in the category of spe- cific accommodation in the Assembly pool. Under this, the GAD has shifted their ac- commodation from General pool to As- sembly pool. In such a situation, the commit- tee of the Legislative Assembly will now decide whether to allot their existing govern- ment accommodation to a specific category of MLA or not. How- ever, it is believed that their existing govern- ment accommodation will be allotted in a specific category of the Assembly pool. It is worth mention- ing that ever since these former minis- ters were relieved from their posts, there was a discussion that notice would be given by the government to these leaders to vacate the government bun- galows orginally re- served for ministers. Especially consider- ing their revolt against the govern- ment, it was consid- ered that they will have to vacate the bungalows, but it was not done even after many months and now their bungalows have been put in the Assembly pool, so that the committee can take a proper decision about it.

NiranjanArya: Gehlot’s‘BPL’ experiment inbureaucracy! Aditi Nagar New Delhi: A ‘strate- gic’ Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s ‘BPL or NREGA experi- ment’ in Rajasthan bureaucracy, by mak- ing Niranjan Arya the Chief Secretary of the state, proves to be a highly successful experiment. A soft spoken and hardcore Gehlot loyalist, Arya, who completes his first 100 days in office this morning, has al- ready worked out a detailed agenda for his remaining eleven months, may be he gets one or two exten- sions like CS Rajan. Arya says that he has only one line agenda i.e. to ensure timely and effective execution of all the schemes and pro- grammes and public announcements in budget and outside made by his ‘mentor’ CM Gehlot. Arya has virtually converted CS office into a ‘mixed culture centre’ of bureaucra- cy and political re- quirements of the Chief Minister or the state government. Everyday, he receives a huge crowd of com- mon men petitioners and also a number of MLAs and MPs at his residence and office to work some sort of a bridge between the ‘complaining’ legisla- tors and the Chief Minister. After another per- forming Gehlot loyal- ist, Kuldeep Ranka being a purely bu- reaucratic and rule book civil servant and also maintaining a de- cent distance from the Chief Minister’s ‘political work’, now apart from a discreet and efficient Devar- am, Arya has taken over the charge of sorting out MLAs and MPs development re- lated issues under an overall supervisory control of the Chief Minister. According to sourc- es, Arya’s real chal- lenge is to ensure a proper ‘time manage- ment’ to meet out his bureaucratic and public redressal re- quirements. Now, per- haps for the first time, a ‘NREGA’ im- age grassroots son of the soil, Arya occu- pies the official resi- dence of the Chief Secretary, courtesy Gehlot! Gehlot’s ‘Arya experiment’ has proved that given an opportunity and func- tional support, any- one can turn the ta- bles! Infact, Gehlot is lucky to have an effi- cient and ‘balanced’ team of Arya and Ranka on his call. With a single stroke, by appointing Arya, Gehlot has won the heart and soul of the entire SC community which may prove to be a crucial factor for 2023.

  • 10. f you’re looking for inspira- tion, you’ll find plenty of ideas for weird and wacky proposals; try to give yours the personal touch and pick something relevant to you as a couple. From the man who created a discount coupon to propose to his bride-to-be to geeky proposals inspired by games and TV shows, a wacky proposal shows imagination and effort and is sure to sweep her off her feet. CHOOSE A FAVOURITE PLACE When you’re at a beach, hotel rooftop, underwater, monu- ment or national park— that has personal sig- nificance to the two of you, ask some- one nearby to take a p i c - ture of you together. Instead of pos- ing, drop down on one knee or have a choir, brass band or drum line show up for a surprise performance of your loved one. For a personal touch, ask the performers if they can incorporate your lovers’ name into the lyrics. DESTINATION PROPOSAL Plan a romantic destination getaway for two. When you’re on the plane, use the loudspeaker system (of course, run your plan by the flight attendants first) and propose at 35,000 feet or rent a Vespa, scooter or bikes to tour the city or and invite your soon-to-be fi- ance or lover for a ride, but remind them to be safe and wear a helmet. Hand over the helmet, with a box of ring already in it then zip around town to celebrate. EASY PEASY PROPOSAL Gather a bunch of your friends and family for a party and have everyone put on a T-shirt or carry balloons filled with helium (otherwise they won’t float) bearing one of the letters in the phrase, ‘Will you marry me?’ Then during the party suggest a group picture to reveal the message or you can spell your proposal out in glow-in-the-dark star stickers on your ceiling. Get into bed, turn the lights off and wait for the gasp. FOODY PROPOSAL Make the box holding the ring as a selection on the dessert tray at your favourite restaurant or put togeth- er a gift basket of yummy treats— like dark chocolate, coffee or fresh fruit—and hide the ring among the presents (in its box, so it doesn’t get lost in the goodies). Whether you want to pop the question in a cute but simple way or you’re ready to organize a super unique surprise, there’s some- thing here for you. Whatever the case, re- member that the best proposal ideas are those that truly capture the cou- ple’s relation- ship.

  • 11. oney is delicious, makes your sali- vary glands active and your taste buds eager the mo- ment you have the honey jar before your eyes. Honey , then, ful- fils your anticipated stand- ards of satisfaction and satiety as it has been doing so for time immemorial. Honey has an interesting history, chemistry, myths and much more. Honey has a recorded history of about 8000 years as seen in Egyptian evi- dence and Indian folklore but must be known to man from the day the first man went out in search of food. This may be the reason for our love for honey - we might be genetically mod- elled to love honey and hence, prone to be exploit- ed by smart merchants of unlimited profits. Honey is made by bees but contrary to common belief all bees do not make honey - only honeybees and stingless bees make honey, there being only about seven types of bees who are capable of making honey. A worker bee goes to a foraging trip of about 6-8 kilometres daily to col- lect pollens in her special stomach during warmer months of the year and usually dies after supply- ing raw material for one- twelfth of a teaspoon in about six weeks, they are born to perform this act of collection and then die without tasting the fruit of their labour! They travel an amazing distance of more than 75 thousand km to make about one and a half kg of honey if we combine the foraging trips of all the worker bees. Then there are house bees who dehydrate, add enzymes, make, store and seal the honey in honey- comb so that they can sur- vive during winter months and their newborns can feed on it to sustain the bee life on earth. Bees make honey for their survival, the man steals it and anni- hilates many colonies without any thought and thankfulness. We hear so much com- mercial propaganda re- garding the usefulness of honey that it is a natural curiosity to know about its contents. Honey, in one ta- blespoon, contains 64 calo- ries, 17.3 gm sugars and some minuscule amount of vitamins and minerals, no fat, no fibre and no pro- teins. It has sugars and wa- ter to the extent of 98 per cent. Bees are not muscu- lar creatures and live a very basic life. They need sugar as their only food and store sugars which when treated with some bee enzymes takes the form of honey. So, chemi- cally speaking, honey is natural fructose and glu- cose and there is nothing like miracle composition as claimed by merchants of profit. We love honey because our ancestors sur- vived hunger and possible death during their jour- neys when ‘on feet’, don- keys and later on camel or horses were the few means of travel to places which had no definitive travel routes. This historical memory, perhaps, lingers in our genes. Secondly, all the sweet things activate the same places and path- ways of our brain that marijuana, heroin and al- cohol do. Honey is a good source of instant energy and a better sweetener than pro- cessed sugar. It has some healing effect on mouth sore and superficial skin wounds and helps in night time coughs where it acts better than cough syrup because it is soothing and causes no dryness of throat. Taken with water, it may help to reduce a few kilograms of fat over a longer period because its fructose helps in accelera- tion of base metabolic rate. As it accelerates water ab- sorption, it is of use in managing diarrhoea at home. These are the few minor health benefits of honey though the claims are tall but unfounded. Honey should never be given to children below 12 months of age as it may contain spores of a dread- ed and often fatal disease called botulism and infants have no power to fight this bacteria. One more inter- esting thing about honey is that it can be stored for eternity if the container is sealed properly to avoid moisture. This is possible because bees add a special enzyme called gluconic acid and hydrogen perox- ide to sugars of honey to prevent their degradation. As mentioned earlier, honey is delicious but it is for bees and we need bees for a much bigger role in our ecosystem, we need pollination much more than satisfying our taste buds. We are paying so much more for better- stored fructose and glucose and destroying natural bee life and starving our plants of pollination under spells of advertisements. Man has become a beekeeper but once again, he has en- slaved poor hapless crea- ture for profit. Honey is sweet but is not worthy of over 300 rupees a kilo and so much damage to nature. Finally, the decision is left upon you by putting forth the chemical analy- sis of honey. It contains fructose 38.2%, glucose 31.3%, maltose 7.1%, su- crose 1.3%, water 17.2%, higher sugars 1.5%, ash 0.2% and other contents 3.2% . Now let yourself be informed about how a pre- dominantly sugar-based substance can help attain miraculous health? Isn’t the honey money? 10 ETC JAIPUR | TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2021 www.firstindia.co.in I www.firstindia.co.in/epaper/ I twitter.com/thefirstindia I facebook.com/thefirstindia I instagram.com/thefirstindia F A C E O F T H E D A Y HIMANSHI TEKWANI, MODEL LEO JULY 24 - AUGUST 23 You are going to get fantastic returns from a recently made business deal.
