कवि नीरज की स्मृति में मिलेगा नवोदित कवियो ं को 5 लाख रुपए का पुरस्कार.

नई दिल्ली – सदस्य एवं हिन्दुस्थान समाचार के अध्यक्ष आर. के सिन्हा ने मंगलवार को एक प्रेसवार्ता कर कवि एवं गीतकार स्वर्गीय गोपालदास ‘नीरज’ की याद में ‘नीरज स्मृति न्यास’ का गठन की घोषणा की। ‘नीरज स्मृति न्यास’ इसके अध्यक्ष होंगे और कवि तथा गीतकार गजेन्द्र सोलंकी को इसका सचिव बनाया गया है।
नीरज स्मृति न्यास का पहला आयोजन कवि नीरज को ‘काव्यांजलि’ के रूप में 08 अगस्त को एनडीएमसी कन्वेंशन सेंटर में आयोजित किया जा रहा है। इस कार्यक्रम में शामिल होने वाले कवियों में वरिष्ठ कवि प्रो. सोम ठाकुर, डॉ. कुंवर बेचैन, डॉ. अशोक चक्रधर, डॉ. बुद्धिनाथ मिश्र, प्रो. हरिओम पंवार, डॉ. गोविन्द व्यास, सुरेन्द्र शर्मा, विष्णु सक्सेना, राजेन्द्र राजन, संतोषानंद डॉ. सीता सागर, डा. सरिता शर्मा, श्रीओम अम्बर और शशांक प्रभाकर के नाम प्रमुख हैं।।

नीरज स्मृति न्यास की अवधारणा प्रस्तुत करते हुए आरके सिन्हा ने कहा कि कवि नीरज युवा कवियों को बहुत प्रोत्साहित किया करते थे। इसलिए हमने इस न्यास के माध्यम से नवोदित कवियों को प्रति वर्ष 5 लाख रुपये का सम्मान देने का निर्णय लिया है। उन्होंने बताया कि नवोदित कवियों-रचनाकारों का चयन करने के लिए एक समिति गठित की जाएगी। वही तय करेगी यह राशि एक नवोदित कवि को दी जाए या अनेक को प्रोत्साहन स्वरूप दी जाए। भविष्य में यह राशि बढ़ाई भी जा सकती है। कवि नीरज की स्मृति में नवोदित कवियों को प्रोत्साहित किया जाए, यही उनके प्रति सच्ची श्रद्धांजलि होगी।
आरके सिन्हा ने कवि नीरज के व्यक्तित्व का बखान करते हुए कहा कि वस्तुतः वे एक दार्शनिक कवि थे। उनकी लेखनी में सौन्दर्य एवं यथार्थ दोनों रहता था।उनकी भाषा शैली इतनी सहज और सरल थी कि सीधे दिल में उतर जाती थी।

उन्होंने बताया कि कवि नीरज ने हरिवंश राय बच्चन, सूर्यकान्त त्रापाठी निराला, फिराक गोरखपुरी, फैज, सुमित्रा नंदन पंत जैसे कवियों शायरों के साथ कविता पाठ किया है, पर कभी भी अहंकार उन्हें छूकर भी नहीं गया। बल्कि वे नवोदित कवियों को अपने साथ मंच पर ले जाते थे ताकि उनका स्थान बने। ऐसे ही उन्होंने फिल्म जगत की महान हस्तियों के साथ काम किया पर उसकी चकाचौंध से प्रभावित नहीं हुए।
कवि नीरज के फिल्मी दुनिया से जुड़े किस्से सुनाते हुए उन्होंने कहा कि राज कपूर, देवानंद जैसे अपने समय के सुपरस्टार नीरज के लिखे गाने ही पसंद किया करते थे।एक बार जब नीरज ने ‘ऐ भाई जरा देख के चलो, आगे ही नहीं पीछे भी’ लिखा तो शंकर जयकिशन ने बोला – ये क्या लिखा है, इस पर कैसे धुन बनेगी। तब कवि नीरज ने गुनगुनाकर उस गीत की धुन बताई। हम देखते हैं कि यह गाना आज भी बेहद लोकप्रिय है।

आरके सिन्हा ने कहा कि कवि नीरज की स्मृति इतनी बढ़िया थी कि वह कविता पाठ के लिए कभी भी डायरी और कागज का इस्तेमाल नहीं करते थे। वे जनमने के कवि थे और निडर थे। आपातकाल के दौरान उनकी लिखी कविता ‘संसद जाने वाले राही कहना इंदिरा गांधी से, बच न सकेगी दिल्ली भी अब जय प्रकाश की आंधी से’ उनकी निडरता और बेबाकी दर्शाती है। हम सब चाहते थे कि हम उनकी जन्म शती मनाएं, पर वे सात साल पहले ही चले गए। पर उनके गीत लोगों की जुवान पर हमेशा अमर रहेंगे।

#Kalaignar #Karunanidhi – A Journey

The journey of kalaignar M Karunanidhi from his birth in the small town of Thiruvarur to becoming one of the most prominent political leaders of the world, has been a very remarkable one. He had passed away today by 6:10 after being admitted in Kauvery hospital, suffering from age related health issues, at 94.

Being a fighter from a very young age, Karunanidhi had achieved a lot in the fields of politics, cinema , drama and arts. Karunanidhi was born on June 3, 1924 at Thirukuvalai near Thiruvarur, to Anjugam and Muthuvelar. His real name was Dakshinamoorthy, and later rechristened to Muthuvel Karunanidhi, to be finally known as M Karunanidhi.

Born in a poor family, Karunanidhi had been a temple dance performer in his childhood, and was passionate towards Tamil language. At the age of 13, he started involving in social welfare activities, and inspired by Pattukottai Azhagiri’s speech he had got interest to join politics. Even during his school days, he had actively participated in political campaigns, and he was denied admission in 6th standard, following which he had protested against his headmaster Kasthuri Iyengar and got admission in the same school.

He had then participated in the Hindi opposition movement in 1938. This was the movement started when the centre had tried to impose hindi in south, and this was the movement that gave Tamilnadu many memorable leaders, the prominent of them being Karunanidhi. He was always interested in projecting himself as a journalist, and had run a magazine named manavanesan and had written many articles in Anna’s Dravida nadu. He later started the murasoli publications, and murasoli magazine has been existing from 10.08.1942 till now.

He had been active in staging dramas, and on 28.05.1944 he had staged a drama named pazhaniappan. He had penned fiery dialogues for Many movies including Parasakthi. He had performed a self respect marriage with Padmavati in 1944, and she had passed away in 1948. Anna and Periyar were his political gurus and their ideologies were his driving force. In 1946, the flag of Dravida Kazhagam was unveiled, and he placed his blood on the black flag following which a black and red flag was formed.

In 1948 he had married Dayalu ammal and in 1966 he had married Rajathi ammal. In 1949, DMK was carved out of Dravida Kazhagam by Anna, and in 1957, Karunanidhi had become the TN assembly member. After Anna won In 1967, he had held office as public welfare department and transportation minister. After Anna’s death he had took over the Chief Minister role as well as the leadership of DMK.

In 1969 he had become the TN chief minister for the first time, and in 1971 he had become the chief minister for the second time, and his third tenure began in 1989. In 1996 and 2006 , he was elected as TN chief minister for the fourth and fifth times. He has so far won elections in various constituencies like kulithalai, Thanjavur, Saidapet, Anna Nagar, Thiruvarur, and he’s the only politician who had won all his elections so far from 1957-2006.

Free electricity, kalaignar insurance, free rice, reservation , police commission, Free bus pass, samathuvapuram, Anna marumalarchi scheme, Namakku naame scheme, free cycle rickshaw, TV, separate board for scheduled and downtrodden sections, uzhavar sandhai were some of the plans and schemes he had brought into effect. Pension for language war veterans, May 1 holiday, Undergraduate and post graduate exams, elections for mayors, free education, renaming of Madras to Chennai were some of the other implementations of Karunanidhi.

Mini bus, tidel park ,33% reservation for women in local governance, Chennai metro, underground sewage system, conversion of sea water to drinking water, engineering college fee reduction, 1 kg rice for 1 rupee, other caste priests in temples, Conversion banning cancellation, Kannagi statue installation were few other remarkable moves of Karunanidhi. Marine University, Classical language status for Tamil, 2 acres land for farmers, permission to set up medical and Industrial establishments, veterinary sciences University, 5% exclusive reservation in engineering and medicine were brought by kalaignar M Karunanidhi.

Man killed his wife and committed suicide

A 47-year-old man, Girish Bhatnagar allegedly killed his 34-year-old wife Manisha Kohli before committing suicide after a fight between them at an apartment in Greater Noida.

The couple got married two years ago after they met through a matrimonial site. Her sister was also living with them at their home in Galaxy Vega Apartments.

Girish Bhatnagar worked in Delhi earlier but quit his job six months ago. Recently he got to know that this was his wife’s second marriage, Police said according to the note, the man also came to know that his wife suspected his relationship with his sister.

These developments in their relationship had apparently disturbed the couple’s life which led Girish Bhatnagar into depression.

‘This morning when the wife’s brother and relatives tried contacting her on phone there was no response. After several attempts to reach out to her, those nearby came to their apartment,’ Bisrakh Station House Officer (SHO) Akhilesh Tripathi said.

The SHO said when the door was broken down, the bodies of the couple were found inside the house. The woman’s body bore severe injuries on the head and was soaked in blood. The man’s body was found hanging from a ceiling, police said.

The bodies were later sent for post-mortem and police started the investigation.

Sales Tax Dy. Commissioner allegedly rapes subordinate in 5-star hotel

Bhopal: In yet another incident of crime against women, Deputy Commissioner of Sales Tax Department allegedly raped his subordinate. He reportedly committed this heinous crime in a 5-star hotel.

It is also reported that they came to meet one of the top political leaders in the State.

Research revealed the new compound for reverse human cell ageing

Scientists have developed a novel compound which they say can reverse ageing in human cells, and may lead to “anti-degenerative” drugs.

In a laboratory study of endothelial cells – which line the inside of blood vessels – researchers at the University of Exeter in the UK tested compounds designed to target mitochondria, the “power stations” of cells.

The compounds – AP39, AP123 and RT01 – have been designed to selectively deliver minute quantities of the gas hydrogen sulphide to the mitochondria in cells and help the old or damaged cells to generate the ‘energy’ needed for survival and to reduce senescence.

In the samples used, the number of senescent cells – older cells that have deteriorated and stopped dividing – was reduced by up to 50 per cent.

The team also identified two splicing factors – a component of cells – that play a key role in when and how endothelial cells become senescent.

The findings raise the possibility of future treatments not only for blood vessels – which become stiffer as they age, raising the risk of problems including heart attacks and strokes – but also for other cells, researchers said.

“As human bodies age, they accumulate old (senescent) cells that do not function as well as younger cells,” said Professor Lorna Harries, of the University of Exeter Medical School.

“This is not just an effect of ageing – it is a reason why we age,” said Harries.

“The compounds developed at Exeter have the potential to tweak the mechanisms by which this ageing of cells happens,” she said.

“We used to think age-related diseases like cancer, dementia and diabetes each had a unique cause, but they actually track back to one or two common mechanisms.

“This research may well be the basis for a new generation of anti-degenerative drugs, Harries said.

The research looked at precisely targeting and rejuvenating mitochondria in old cells.

Each one of our genes is capable of making more than one product, and splicing factors are the genes that make the decision about which of these products are made.

“Nearly half of the aged cells we tested showed signs of rejuvenating into young cell models,” said Harries.

Using novel chemicals, the researchers were able to very specifically target two splicing factors (SRSF2 or HNRNPD) that play a key role in determining how and why our cells change with advancing age.

The researchers tested three different compounds and found each produced a 40-50 per cent drop in the number of senescent blood vessel cells.

“Our compounds provide mitochondria in cells with an alternative fuel to help them function properly,” said Professor Matt Whiteman, also from the University of Exeter.

“Many disease states can essentially be viewed as accelerated ageing, and keeping mitochondria healthy helps either prevent or, in many cases using animal models, reverse this,” Whiteman said.
