200 KG ADULTERATED
CHEESE FOUND IN RAID

kilograms of contaminated
cheese. The

owner more than Rs 47,000.
Pankaj Ojha, Additional

team, along with the police,

Govardhan Puri Colony.” He
explained that this cheese
was manufactured from haz-
ardous milk and appeared
rotten. After taking samples
and destroying the cheese,
arrests were made.
e was a man
who valued
his privacy.
Not that he
was a re-
cluse. He was exposed to
crowds of people almost
daily.Yet, at the same time,
he managed carefully to
have some time for himself.
He knew that to have
inward depth and personal
self sufficiency, one need-
ed time for oneself – time
to think and reflect, to
search the inmost recesses
of the mind, making it pos-
sible to maintain balance.
The right to privacy is
not easily understood be-
cause it cannot be de-
scribed with precision.
Broadly, privacy is defined
as the claim made by
groups or individuals that
they be allowed to deter-
mine for themselves when,
how and to what extent
information about them is
communicated to others.
What one may consider
to be a matter of privacy,
another may not. Living in
close proximity to rela-
tives and friends can irri-
tate privacy-oriented per-
sons. Being class con-
scious, each social group
tries to live within the pro-
tection of privacy.
Concern for people can
be kept within limits. A
friendly visit once in a
while can be like soothing
ripples on a shore, but to
overdo it may cause others
to build up a psychological
breakwater to keep out the
waves of incessant visita-
tions on which the seeds of
gossip grow.
What about us? Do we
appreciate having some
time for ourselves? When
upset, do we seek privacy?
A young man who went
through family crisis with-
drew from friends for a
time. They felt hurt at his
attitude.
Was it wrong for this
man to be a ‘private per-
son’ who needed time to
sort things out? Not unless,
he used his time alone to
brood or nurse resentful
feelings or to withdraw in
prolonged isolation to the
point of becoming an in-
grown personality. But if
privacy causes one’s
thoughts to be guided by
principles, it can prove to
be a healthful process from
which clear thinking
emerges.
Too much or too little
privacy can create imbal-
ances that jeopardize one’s
well being. Some ques-
tions to introspect can be
– ‘Do I enjoy my own
company? Do I reflect on
new things learned and
broaden my understanding
of matters? Do I like to
contemplate over con-
structive questions and
problems?’
Some persons cannot
enjoy their own company.
They seem impelled to be
around others. It would ap-
pear that if they cannot talk
to someone, they cannot
think for themselves. In-
discriminately, they pour
out everything that crosses
their mind.
Many persons feel that
if they search long and
deep within themselves,
they will eventually un-
cover some depository of
profound truth and mean-
ing. It might be true that
deep and persistent soul
searching will help us bet-
ter understand our views,
tendencies, attitudes, feel-
ings, ambitions, longings
and likes.
But much of what we
find within ourselves
needs to be corrected, even
discarded and replaced
with the makings of a new
self. We are inwardly more
like a vessel – receptive
but to a great extent empty.
We can receive and absorb
knowledge that results in
inner development.
Personalprivacycanbea
timetoread,tomeditateand
develop thinking abilities.
The ability to think devel-
ops only to the extent one
feeds upon information, ex-
perience and training.
Ability to think is not
easy. It is real mental work.
For example, if one needs
to evaluate different types
of persons to a reliable de-
gree, we need to picture
one particular person
whom we know. That per-
son can be seen, heard,
touched and discerned
with the physical senses.
But does such discernment
involve thinking? No.
As one begins to think
about the person, does not
one’s emotional reactions
toward that person start in-
terfering? Before one is
really thinking, have we
not started feeling about
the person – registering
likes, dislikes, respect, dis-
respect, trust, distrust – re-
acting emotionally before
beginning an intellectual
appraisal?
Thinking involves tak-
ing note of the person’s
views, attitudes, behav-
iour, abilities, accomplish-
ments etc. Can we make
logical predictions as to
how the person might react
under given circumstanc-
es? Appraising mental and
emotional qualities in a
person requires making
sure, that feelings do not
slip in under the guise of
thoughts to throw our men-
tal processes off track.
The heart, or seat of
emotions tend to overrule
the head, the seat of intel-
lect. Resolving the conflict
between the heart and the
head is vital.
Absolute privacy is only
a mirage. There is an old
saying, “heaven knows,
earth knows, I know, and
you know.” We will bene-
fit much by making room
in our lives for a reasona-
ble degree of personal pri-
vacy.

DANCE OF LIGHTS
GIVES NIGHT SKY A
BRILLIANT HUE
WAIT, IT’S EARLY TO
MAKE FORECASTS
uroras cast a celestial glow over night skies
in numerous countries worldwide, captivat-
ing observers with their mesmerizing dance
of colors. These dazzling displays are the result of
solar flares, eruptions of magnetic energy from the
Sun’s surface. When these flares release charged par-
ticles into space, they interact with Earth’s magnetic
field, causing geomagnetic storms.
Recently, Earth experienced one of the most sig-
nificant geomagnetic storms in two decades, intensi-
fying auroral activity. This surge in solar activity re-
sulted in vibrant auroras visible at lower latitudes than
usual, as happened in Ladakh, treating viewers to
stunning spectacles rarely seen in such regions. The
phenomenon is expected to continue till Monday.
As solar activity continues to fluctuate, auroras
serve as a captivating reminder of the intricate rela-
tionship between our planet and the vast reaches of
space, showcasing the beauty and wonder of our dy-
namic universe. On the flip side, the geomagnetic
storm has the capability of disrupting GPS satellites
and even electronic devices.
A
rvind Kejriwal, the Delhi Chief Minister
currently out on bail, has speculated on
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s retirement
in 2025 and the potential succession of Home Min-
ister Amit Shah as the next prime minister. Kejri-
wal’s assertion appears rooted in his own political
strategy, devoid of any allowance for miscalculation.
“Modiji will turn 75 on September 17 next year,”
Kejriwal said at a media conference. He cited a rule
made by Modi fixing the retirement age of 75 for all
leaders of the party. It was under this rule that LK
Advani, the longest serving president of the BJP, was
dropped. So was
Murli Manohar
Joshi. That does not
necessarily mean that
Modi should also be
retired. Continuation
of his policies can
only be ensured
when he is at the
helm. Taking bold
decisions is not every
leader’s cup of tea.
Kejriwal proceeds
to assert his next
speculation, sug-
gesting that “Modi-
ji’s close ally, Amit
Shah, could poten-
tially become the
Prime Minister.”
This assertion relies
heavily on the initial prediction proving accurate,
implying Kejriwal would need a clairvoyant ability
to foresee such an outcome.
He extends his forecast to anticipate the removal
of Yogi Adityanath from his position as Uttar
Pradesh’s chief minister following the Lok Sabha
elections. To bolster his argument, he points to var-
ious BJP leaders’ situations. However, Kejriwal
seems to overlook the fact that election results are
still over two weeks away, yet he has already ven-
tured into making numerous hypotheses.
These are undoubtedly important elections for the
country’s future. The results will also decide the fate
of several leaders.

Howrah
Alleging that corruption
was the common charac-
ter of INDIAbloc parties,
Prime Minister Narendra
Modi on Sunday accused
the TMC of having made
it a full-time business.
Addressing an election
rally at Sankrail in How-
rah, he alleged the job of
TMC leaders is to create
unrest in the state.
Whether the Con-
gress, Left or any other
party of the INDIA bloc,
all of them have made
corruption their common
character, Modi alleged.
While many INDIA
bloc parties indulge in
corruption secretly, TMC
does it openly, he
claimed.
TMC has made cor-
ruption a full-time busi-
ness, he said.
Modi said people of
the state have spent their
earnings buying lottery
tickets and losing them in
the lottery scam.
He claimed thatTMC's
agenda is the welfare of
illegal immigrants and
not that of the people of
West Bengal.
They call people of
India as 'bohiragoto' (out-
siders), but illegal immi-
grants from other coun-
tries are given sway in
Bengal, he said.

sserting that
continuity in
governance is
important for the coun-
try’s progress, Union
minister Anurag Thakur
on Sunday said Prime
Minister Narendra Modi
is ready to hit an elec-
toral hat-trick and move
towards the target of
building “Viksit Bharat”
(developed India).
Thakur said no charges
hurled by the Opposition
can stick on Modi.
Dubbing as “laugha-
ble” the opposition’s
claim of victory in the
2024LSelections,Thakur
exuded confidence that
the BJP was well on its
way to achieving the goal
of 370 seats which in-
cludes the 303 seats it
won last time and 70 seats
where it finished second.
These 70 seats were
part of 160 parliamentary
segments that the BJP
had identified after 2019
to launch an extensive
ministerial outreach.
“Icansayafterthethird
phase of elections that
Modi ji is on a hat-trick. I
say this due to one-sided
polling.Congressworkers
have retreated from the
battlefield. In Surat and

dates withdrew from elec-

seeking people’s mandate
once again and also in the
name of development
works initiated over the
last few years as MP.

“treated like slaves”.
“Before Independ-

PM Narendra Modi to make her electoral debut. Thakur also
taunted Priyanka Gandhi’s husband for failing to secure a
Congress ticket for himself. He said Gandhi family members
were welcome in active politics and Congress should in fact
work hard because the country wants a strong opposition
in a parliamentary democracy. Thakur also said the former
Congress chief had “run away” to neighbouring Rae Bareli
which his mother represented in the outgoing LS Polls.

CM REJECTS `11 CR PROPOSAL FOR OFFICERS’ RESIDENCES
CM BHAJAN LAL TWEETS HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY
Jaipur: Renovation works of the official residences
of senior officers have stuck as the chief minister
Bhajan Lal Sharma has not approved a proposal. The
proposal was sent to the CM for approval of the works worth
about Rs 11 crore. It was not approved by the CM due to lack
of ‘justification’. The CM wants to spend money in a rational
and neutral manner. Since the matter pertains to a large
number of officials, the file is likely to be modified and sent
again for approval.  Dr Rituraj Sharma  Aishwary Pradhan

Cabinet Min Rajyavard-
han Rathore has said that
Congress party has never
given respect to judiciary,
constitution and democ-
racy. In a post made on X,
Rathore made the com-
ment while giving a reply
on the post of former CM
Ashok Gehlot.
Gehlot had claimed
that EC’s reaction to the
letter written by Congress
President Kharge to INDI
alliance partners was un-
wanted and EC was look-
ing like taking sides,
Rathore said that defeat
of Cong and INDI alli-
ance was certain on June
4. He wrote that Cong
never respected Judici-
ary, Constitution and De-
mocracy. Once again the
frustration of defeat is
clearly visible in Cong. It
has become a habit of
Cong and Indi alliance
that wherever they lose
elections, they blame
EVMs  insult mandate.

Stressing that the main
concern of Congress dur-
ing Lok Sabha polls in
2024 is inflation and un-
employment, former Ra-
jasthan CM and Congress
leader Ashok Gehlot al-
legedthattheBJPistrying
to divert the minds of the
people of the country.
Ashok Gehlot said,
“The day PM Modi said
this, Rahul Gandhi took
the names of Ambani-
Adani in his rallies. Rahul
Gandhi’s theme of elec-
tions is that 22 industrial-
ists including Ambani-
Adani have 70 per cent of
the nation’s wealth. Our
issue for elections is infla-
tion and unemployment
but the BJP is trying to
divert the minds of the
peopleofthecountry.”He
further asked that if the
loans of industrialists can
be waived, then why the
loansoffarmerscannotbe
waived. “If Rahul Gandhi
had not been taking the
names of Ambani-Adani,
then what PM Modi said
made sense, but Rahul
Gandhi is continuously
taking their names so PM
Modi’s statement is be-
yond understanding. Sec-
ondly, I want to say that
CBI and ED should regis-
ter a case against him and
take a statement from PM
as he made such a big al-
legation that black money
is sent through tempos,”
he further said. He asked
why a case should not be
registered against PM for
making such a big allega-
tion and then the inquiry
can be taken forward.
Amethi: A surge of support from
Rajasthan Congress leaders floods
the campaign trail in Amethi, Uttar
Pradesh, where party candidate K L Shar-
ma is locked in an electoral battle against
Union Minister Smriti Irani. Dharmendra
Rathore, Raghu Sharma, Mahendra
Gehlot, Hem Singh Shekhawat, Sandeep
Chaudhary, Karan Singh Uchiyarada have
all descended upon Amethi to bolster the
campaign efforts in favor of the Congress
candidate. Taking charge under the super-
vision of Ashok Gehlot, these leaders will
remain in Amethi until the conclusion of the
campaign. The involvement of Rajasthan’s
leaders has turned the spotlight on this
electoral battleground, piquing the interest
of the state’s populace. In the midst of this
fervent campaigning, Ashok Gehlot himself
has been stationed in Amethi for the past
three days, actively engaging in the promo-
tion of Congress candidate Kishori Lal
Sharma. Gehlot also met with Professor
Satish Ray, the National Coordinator of the
Rajiv Gandhi Study Circle, on Sunday, to
discuss campaign strategies and rally sup-
port for the Congress candidate.

  • 4. e was a man who valued his privacy. Not that he was a re- cluse. He was exposed to crowds of people almost daily.Yet, at the same time, he managed carefully to have some time for himself. He knew that to have inward depth and personal self sufficiency, one need- ed time for oneself – time to think and reflect, to search the inmost recesses of the mind, making it pos- sible to maintain balance. The right to privacy is not easily understood be- cause it cannot be de- scribed with precision. Broadly, privacy is defined as the claim made by groups or individuals that they be allowed to deter- mine for themselves when, how and to what extent information about them is communicated to others. What one may consider to be a matter of privacy, another may not. Living in close proximity to rela- tives and friends can irri- tate privacy-oriented per- sons. Being class con- scious, each social group tries to live within the pro- tection of privacy. Concern for people can be kept within limits. A friendly visit once in a while can be like soothing ripples on a shore, but to overdo it may cause others to build up a psychological breakwater to keep out the waves of incessant visita- tions on which the seeds of gossip grow. What about us? Do we appreciate having some time for ourselves? When upset, do we seek privacy? A young man who went through family crisis with- drew from friends for a time. They felt hurt at his attitude. Was it wrong for this man to be a ‘private per- son’ who needed time to sort things out? Not unless, he used his time alone to brood or nurse resentful feelings or to withdraw in prolonged isolation to the point of becoming an in- grown personality. But if privacy causes one’s thoughts to be guided by principles, it can prove to be a healthful process from which clear thinking emerges. Too much or too little privacy can create imbal- ances that jeopardize one’s well being. Some ques- tions to introspect can be – ‘Do I enjoy my own company? Do I reflect on new things learned and broaden my understanding of matters? Do I like to contemplate over con- structive questions and problems?’ Some persons cannot enjoy their own company. They seem impelled to be around others. It would ap- pear that if they cannot talk to someone, they cannot think for themselves. In- discriminately, they pour out everything that crosses their mind. Many persons feel that if they search long and deep within themselves, they will eventually un- cover some depository of profound truth and mean- ing. It might be true that deep and persistent soul searching will help us bet- ter understand our views, tendencies, attitudes, feel- ings, ambitions, longings and likes. But much of what we find within ourselves needs to be corrected, even discarded and replaced with the makings of a new self. We are inwardly more like a vessel – receptive but to a great extent empty. We can receive and absorb knowledge that results in inner development. Personalprivacycanbea timetoread,tomeditateand develop thinking abilities. The ability to think devel- ops only to the extent one feeds upon information, ex- perience and training. Ability to think is not easy. It is real mental work. For example, if one needs to evaluate different types of persons to a reliable de- gree, we need to picture one particular person whom we know. That per- son can be seen, heard, touched and discerned with the physical senses. But does such discernment involve thinking? No. As one begins to think about the person, does not one’s emotional reactions toward that person start in- terfering? Before one is really thinking, have we not started feeling about the person – registering likes, dislikes, respect, dis- respect, trust, distrust – re- acting emotionally before beginning an intellectual appraisal? Thinking involves tak- ing note of the person’s views, attitudes, behav- iour, abilities, accomplish- ments etc. Can we make logical predictions as to how the person might react under given circumstanc- es? Appraising mental and emotional qualities in a person requires making sure, that feelings do not slip in under the guise of thoughts to throw our men- tal processes off track. The heart, or seat of emotions tend to overrule the head, the seat of intel- lect. Resolving the conflict between the heart and the head is vital. Absolute privacy is only a mirage. There is an old saying, “heaven knows, earth knows, I know, and you know.” We will bene- fit much by making room in our lives for a reasona- ble degree of personal pri- vacy. THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY THE AUTHOR ARE PERSONAL TOP TWEETS SPIRITUAL SPEAK Calmness, gentleness, silence, self-restraint, and purity: these are the disciplines of the mind. GITA PERSONAL PRIVACY Personal privacy can be a time to read, to medi- tate and develop thinking abilities.

For example, if one needs to evaluate different types of persons to a reliable degree, we need to picture one particular person whom we know.

These dazzling displays are the result of solar flares, eruptions of magnetic energy from the Sun’s surface. When these flares release charged par- ticles into space, they interact with Earth’s magnetic field, causing geomagnetic storms. Recently, Earth experienced one of the most sig- nificant geomagnetic storms in two decades, intensi- fying auroral activity. This surge in solar activity re- sulted in vibrant auroras visible at lower latitudes than usual, as happened in Ladakh, treating viewers to stunning spectacles rarely seen in such regions. The phenomenon is expected to continue till Monday. As solar activity continues to fluctuate, auroras serve as a captivating reminder of the intricate rela- tionship between our planet and the vast reaches of space, showcasing the beauty and wonder of our dy- namic universe. On the flip side, the geomagnetic storm has the capability of disrupting GPS satellites and even electronic devices. A rvind Kejriwal, the Delhi Chief Minister currently out on bail, has speculated on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s retirement in 2025 and the potential succession of Home Min- ister Amit Shah as the next prime minister. Kejri- wal’s assertion appears rooted in his own political strategy, devoid of any allowance for miscalculation. “Modiji will turn 75 on September 17 next year,” Kejriwal said at a media conference. He cited a rule made by Modi fixing the retirement age of 75 for all leaders of the party. It was under this rule that LK Advani, the longest serving president of the BJP, was dropped. So was Murli Manohar Joshi. That does not necessarily mean that Modi should also be retired. Continuation of his policies can only be ensured when he is at the helm. Taking bold decisions is not every leader’s cup of tea. Kejriwal proceeds to assert his next speculation, sug- gesting that “Modi- ji’s close ally, Amit Shah, could poten- tially become the Prime Minister.” This assertion relies heavily on the initial prediction proving accurate, implying Kejriwal would need a clairvoyant ability to foresee such an outcome. He extends his forecast to anticipate the removal of Yogi Adityanath from his position as Uttar Pradesh’s chief minister following the Lok Sabha elections. To bolster his argument, he points to var- ious BJP leaders’ situations. However, Kejriwal seems to overlook the fact that election results are still over two weeks away, yet he has already ven- tured into making numerous hypotheses. These are undoubtedly important elections for the country’s future. The results will also decide the fate of several leaders.

INDIA 05 Jaipur, Monday | May 13, 2024 www.firstindia.co.in firstindia.co.in/epapers/jaipur thefirstindia thefirstindia thefirstindia First India Bureau Howrah Alleging that corruption was the common charac- ter of INDIAbloc parties, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday accused the TMC of having made it a full-time business. Addressing an election rally at Sankrail in How- rah, he alleged the job of TMC leaders is to create unrest in the state. Whether the Con- gress, Left or any other party of the INDIA bloc, all of them have made corruption their common character, Modi alleged. While many INDIA bloc parties indulge in corruption secretly, TMC does it openly, he claimed. TMC has made cor- ruption a full-time busi- ness, he said. Modi said people of the state have spent their earnings buying lottery tickets and losing them in the lottery scam.

ANI Jaipur Stressing that the main concern of Congress dur- ing Lok Sabha polls in 2024 is inflation and un- employment, former Ra- jasthan CM and Congress leader Ashok Gehlot al- legedthattheBJPistrying to divert the minds of the people of the country. Ashok Gehlot said, “The day PM Modi said this, Rahul Gandhi took the names of Ambani- Adani in his rallies. Rahul Gandhi’s theme of elec- tions is that 22 industrial- ists including Ambani- Adani have 70 per cent of the nation’s wealth. Our issue for elections is infla- tion and unemployment but the BJP is trying to divert the minds of the peopleofthecountry.”He further asked that if the loans of industrialists can be waived, then why the loansoffarmerscannotbe waived. “If Rahul Gandhi had not been taking the names of Ambani-Adani, then what PM Modi said made sense, but Rahul Gandhi is continuously taking their names so PM Modi’s statement is be- yond understanding. Sec- ondly, I want to say that CBI and ED should regis- ter a case against him and take a statement from PM as he made such a big al- legation that black money is sent through tempos,” he further said. He asked why a case should not be registered against PM for making such a big allega- tion and then the inquiry can be taken forward.
