Why Some People Upset with Talks of Patriotism – Actor Anupam Kher
Bhopal:MMNN: Nov. 15, 2016
When we talk about patriotism, some people felt upset. They say do not teach us patriotism. This is true that nobody can teach patriotism, it comes from inside. Patriotism is in our blood. It emerges whenever opportunity appears. If the talk of patriotism hurts anyone, let them we will act as we wish. This view was expressed by the special guest of the concluding session and the famous film actor Shri Anupam Kher at the three day Lok-Manthan programme. The programme was organized under the joint aegis of Culture Department Madhya Pradesh, Bharat Bhavan and Pragya Pravah organization.
Shri Kher further mentioned that topics like intolerance and patriotism have been raised intentionally in the last two-three years. When discussion on intolerance took place, Bhartiya inside me awoke and has told me this is no time to keep quite. Hence, I opposed the intolerance openly. Shri Kher said that people make efforts to neglect people who talk about the patriotism. Question is why we should be protective to talk about the patriotism.
He said that he is a Kashmiri Pandit and he has patriotism in his blood. The Kasmiri Pandit never spoke against country despite they have been banished. He mentioned that Nation should come first for every Indian. No finger prints matches others means every individual is unique. We all have different identities but our first identification is that we are Indians.
The Chief Guest of the concluding session Boddha Religious Guru Somdong Rinpoche describing the time of Lok-Manthan the right time said that this will be a new direction. Lok-Manthan has importance because by admitting the views on country, period and situations has given importance to Nation First concept. Today all the four situations are not simple. Pollution is at its peak in the country. There is no clean water.
Velocity of speed and stability of situation has created a bizarre situation. Everyone talks about challenges but not solution. Maximum increase in violence is seen in the form of war and terrorism.

We have tried to remove veils from the hearts in the Lok-Manthan.
Dr. Diwedi further said that nobody can get milk from counting cows. Will Society get Amrut from intellectual discussions. We will have to take forward these deliberations, in family, society and everywhere. There is no need for so many people in Manthan. We will have to keep continue the Manthan. Amrut of Gita was obtained from the dialogues of Krishna and Arjun. Swami Vivekanand said that I am worried about the world, so I worried about India because we will get all the answers of questions of the world from India.

Nationalism and Liberalisation not Oppose Each Other
Bhopal:MMNN: Nov. 14, 2016
Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that Indian Soil and Culture is full of liberalization and globalization. Nationalism and liberalization not oppose each other whereas they are one. Shri Chouhan was addressing the group session on ‘Nav-Udarikaran aur Bhoomandlikaran ke Daur mein Rashtriyata ‘ at the second day of ‘Lok Manthan’ here today.
Shri Chouhan mentioned that ‘Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam’ has been said in India thousand years ago. There is always liberty for views in India. After Monarchy in west, democracy took birth with an objective to establish freedom and equality. Moreover, after industrial evolution, communism emerged for proletarian to oppose exploitation. Communism and later capitalism could not made happiness possible for the humans.
Happiness is utmost essential for heart, intelligence and souls beside body. Life conducting arrangement has been made through Dharm, Arth, Kaam, Moksh and Purushartha in Indian Culture. Human is not only person but it is also society. Hence we have to deliberate for the happiness of the society. Consciousness is omnipresent is the basic of Indian Philosophy. Nature should not be exploited but it should be utilized. This eternal view can give direction to the world.
CM Shri Chouhan said that ‘Integrated Humanity’ philosophy of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya is based on Indian traditions. He said that there should be no scarcity of money in life and neither it should dominate life.
Referring to the Union Government decision Shri Chouhan said that the effect of essence was eliminated by after demonetizing Rs. 500 and 1000 currency notes. This decision will eliminate black money, counterfeit notes and funding to terrorism.
Former Union Minister Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi said that nationalism strengthen spirit of ‘Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam’ whereas globalization is mere economic thought. There is a difference between both but coordination is also required.
As per the western thoughts, the creator of the world lives outside the world, create it again and punish. Humans are sent to earth for gratification. Moreover, western thoughts consider that nature is not live, cannot sense, hence it is permitted to enjoy it.
Dr. Joshi further mentioned that it is being said that globalization is not meant for poor and poor countries. This is the basic behind the western thought, consciousness can exploit unconsciousness. The foundation of consciousness is balance in Indian culture. Not more than needed and not less than required. We are being impacted by the western culture.
Family is our basic foundation and disintegration will collapse the world. Globalization today hinders individuality, complexity and superiority. Prosperity does not bring serenity and India must understand to balance it. West needs market only and we need market as well as family.
In the context of Nationalism, Member of Niti Ayog Dr. Vivek Deboroy while giving example of Swami Vivekanand said that Indian Population believes in Moksha (salvation), believes in eternal joy. If I do not feel pride for India, it means I have no sense of pride towards myself.
There is a danger on our thousand years old cultures in the name of globalization. We do not even understand our old culture and traditions. Even Nineteen thousand Shastras have not yet been translated so far from our 35 thousand shastras.

It may be mentioned that Prime Minister Crop Insurance Scheme is the insurance scheme being provided to the farmers at very low premium rate. Economic burden will be borne by the Government of India under the scheme.
Specialty about the scheme is that it has one rate for one season for food grains, pulses and oil seeds crops. Now farmers will get rid of district wise and crop wise different rates.
Moreover, a maximum of 5 percent premium rate has been fixed for horticulture/commercial crops. These rates are very low from earlier rates. There will be no insurance capping and hence threw will be no deduction in insurance claims. Not only this, first time water logging has been included in the local risk.
Also cyclone and untimely weather risk has been included. Furthermore, emphasis has been laid on a wide use of mobile and satellite technology for accurate assessment and immediate payment. In the earlier schemes, the compensation amount to cover loss becomes little due to high premium and to ascertain the period of insured sum. Hence, this clause has been deleted in the new scheme.
Now farmers will get full insured amount as compensation. Under the scheme, fire, lightening, storm, hailstorm, cyclone, flood, water logging, land slide, drought, bad weather, disease due to insects and other crop diseases have been included for protection of crop loss.
