New Delhi: Shocked over one fatality every four minutes in road accidents in India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said his government will soon implement a road safety policy and cashless treatment for accident victims.

In his monthly ‘Maan Ki Baat’ radio programme, Modi said: “The statistics on road accidents in our country are shocking. There is an accident every minute. And… there is a death every four minutes.”

In view of this, the government would soon introduce a Road Transport and Safety Bill in parliament and work to implement the National Road Safety Policy and a Road Safety Action Plan, he said.

The prime minister said there would soon be a nationwide toll free number 1033 to provide information on accidents across the country.

Official statistics show 15 to 16 people in road accidents in the country every hour or nearly 380 every day. The daily toll includes 16 children.

A total of 137,000 people became road accident victims in 2013.

The prime minister also said that development of the country’s northeast was not possible with officials sitting in Delhi. He vowed to depute officials to the region to find solutions to problems faced by the people.

“Is it possible to develop the northeast while sitting in Delhi? No. Officials will visit and see how it is to be done.

“The DoNER (Development of Northeastern Region) ministry has taken a significant decision to send teams of central government officials to the northeast and hold week-long camps there,” he said.

The ministry is responsible for planning, executing and monitoring the central government’s development schemes in Assam, Nagaland, Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura, Mizoram, Sikkim and Meghalaya.

“These teams will hold camps in districts and villages, meet local officials, people’s representatives and citizens. They will listen to their problems and help the government to find their solutions.”

In his talk, Modi praised efforts made towards keeping India clean.

He congratulated government officials from Harda district in Madhya Pradesh for their ‘Malyudh’ (a sanitation programme).

“They have given a new meaning to ‘Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan’. A brother gifting his sister a toilet on ‘Raksha Bandhan’, and the one who does so becoming ‘brother number one’ has given a new direction to the (cleanliness) mission,” he said.

Speaking on issues like electricity, Modi said his government was committed to providing power to all villages.

“Whatever facilities are provided in cities, similar facilities are required for people in villages too if we have to develop our nation,” he said.

Modi also expressed concern that fewer students were taking up science at the higher education level.

“Out of 100 only one or two students take up science. It’s a cause of concern,” the prime minister said, adding that students must be encouraged to study the subject.

To mark Kargil Day on July 26, Modi paid tributes to soldiers killed in the 1999 Kargil war with Pakistan.

“Each and every Indian soldier fought bravely. I pay my respects to the soldiers who … fought for the country,” he said Baat” radio programme.

“The Kargil battle was not just fought on the borders… Every village, city and town made a contribution.”

    Cancel road accidents

    Canceling road accidents is not Difficult to do because a similar system currently works in the agricultural sector.

    Agricultural system is more complex than necessary to the traffic system.

    So you can run the traffic system immediately.

    I’m talking about using Precision Farming to Solve problems in Traffic.

    Mathematical examination of the passage shows that the Precision traffic less complex than Precision Agriculture from the known rule that in the surface there are infinite lines.

    The Precision traffic system educates and instills a driving culture.

    Precision traffic system reduces the time length of learning to dimensions of months.

    Form of education in the proposed system is similar to addition of endless of traffic policemen.

    The system works on the basis of personal mentoring.

    Any errant driver will be assigned a “policeman mentor”.

    The policeman will be a virtual policeman but will be fully present.

    “Big Brother Effect” will be treated thoroughly and virtual cop appears only when the driver goes to offense .

    The privacy of citizens will be preserved carefully. Drivers driving according the law will not be recorded and will not be documented.

    I have the unpleasant feeling that we can save thousands of people a year and do not rescuers.

    That Related to thousands injured people and considerable financial losses.

    Today it is possible to run a small order of tens of vehicles to demonstrate feasibility.

    All the tools are exist but are not used.

    The system will help to the police identify speeders and it will help law to enforcement and reducing vulnerability to life and property.

    This understanding is the educational way that cause to drivers to not breaking the law and operate under the law and the roads conditions.

    Precision Traffic based on Precision Farming provides a solution that includes all areas of driving and most important is education drivers.

    Precision Traffic Can be used as a Driving Teacher, a Driving guide, as accompanied a driving, as a driving mentor, and policeman and judge . The report would be sent directly to the driver at the address listed at the DMV.

    Unfortunately to keep a distance not sufficient a warning, the driver must slow down and increase the distance from the vehicle in front. Maintaining the appropriate distance depends on the will of the driver in another language and education.

    No deterrence without punishment!

    I’ll go to any place and to any forum to explain the proposed system and answer questions as needed.

    Precision Traffic

    New approach to traffic management and control of operational use will help the police to enforce traffic offenders and finding all kinds of traffic offenses, here are the details:

    Infractions Car – himself:

    1 – Not wearing a safety belt.

    2 – Low pressure tires.

    3 – Not lighting lights.

    4 – And more.

    Offenses car relation to road:

    1 – Speeding.

    2 – Failure to comply with a stop sign.

    3 – Drive on the white line.

    4 – Unauthorized traffic lane.

    5 – Failure to comply with traffic lights.

    6 – Driving on the traffic island.

    7 – Driving on sidewalks.

    8 – Stopping the car while interfering traffic flow.

    9 – Integration not allowed.

    10– Turning not follow the rules and laws.

    11– And more.

    Car relations offenses – Vehicles: (One to another).

    1 – Not maintaining proper distance between vehicles.

    2 – Dangerous bypass.

    3 – Not to give right of way to integration.

    4 – Overtaking on the right.

    5 – Sudden stop in a busy road without probable cause.

    6 – Hazardous integration to busy road.

    7 – And more.

    Car relations offenses – car to car and road:

    1 – Bypass on crosswalk.

    2 – Not being slow sign and give the right of way.

    3 – Transition from lane to lane in a busy multi-track road

    4 – And more.

    Options:

    1 – Directing traffic from busy roads to others.

    2 – Warning drivers about traffic jams.

    3 – Changing of traffic lights according to traffic volume.

    4 – Learning behaviors and published global conclusions about

    recurring phenomena.

    5 – Characterizing typical behaviors and adapting the

    infrastructure accordingly.

    6 – Study load transportation and disposal conclusions

    accordingly.

In films ‘Victoria & Abdul’ and ‘American Made,’ Life is Stranger than Fiction

Actors Ali Fazal and Judi Dench
Actors Ali Fazal and Judi Dench pose during a red carpet for the movie "Victoria and Abdul" at the 74th Venice Film Festival 2017 in Venice. voa

Stephen Frears’ heartwarming drama Victoria & Abdul is about the deep friendship between Queen Victoria and her Indian servant Abdul Karim between 1887 and 1901, and Doug Liman’s American Made about Barry Seal, a 1970s audacious American pilot, who, during the Nicaraguan Crisis worked for the CIA, the DEA and the Colombian cartel.

As different as these two films are, they are both based on true stories, proving yet again that often life is stranger than fiction. Both films feature intelligent plots and superb acting.

Victoria & Abdul

Stephen Frears’ film Victoria and Abdul, opens in 1887, with the festivities for Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee, celebrating her 50-year reign.

Abdul Karim, a young Muslim clerk from Agra, India, is sent to the banquet all the way from India to present the queen with a gift from India, a ceremonial coin. To the dismay of Queen Victoria’s courtiers, the Indian servant strikes a deep friendship with the octogenarian Queen Victoria, defying class and racial boundaries.

According to the movie, Abdul Karim impressed the British sovereign with his depth of spirit and good looks. Soon the unlikely friends became inseparable, discussing philosophy, literature, even Indian cuisine. In a span of 14 years, Abdul Karm became the queen’s confidant and munshi, her teacher, in Urdu.

But the queen’s courtesans and her family, sidelined by Abdul, questioned her sanity and considered her removal.

Historian and author Shrabani Basu based her book of the same title on the queen’s journals in Urdu and on Karim’s private diary. Basu discovered Abdul Karim’s personal diary in possession of Karim’s surviving nephew Abdul Rashid in 2010, over a century after the queen’s death.

This was the only document on the relationship between royal and servant that survived the wrath of Queen Victoria’s children. Immediately after her death in 1901, the royals evicted Queen Victoria’s munshi, burned everything he had received from the queen and swiftly shipped him and his family to India. In 1909 Abdul Karim died in Agra leaving his diary as his only testimonial of his deep friendship with the empress.

Director Frears offers captivating cinematography while Dame Judi Dench portrays a free-spirited Queen Victoria and Indian actor Ali Fazal embodies a charming and loyal Adbul Karim.

Though the film does not depict a romantic relationship between the two, it does hint to it. Dench describes the queen’s reaction to Karim:

“She had a ready eye for somebody good-looking, which he is very, so it was easy to imagine a kind of tired, poor person suddenly looking up and seeing this wonderful good-looking young man. How lovely somebody at last beautiful to look at,” Dench said.

But, author Basu says, “At the heart of this book is a story of friendship, a friendship of two different people from two different specters of this world, one is the Empress of India, one is a clerk from Agra jail, and somewhere they have a bond they find this link and a common space.”

American Made

American Made, by Bourne Identity filmmaker Doug Liman, offers a satirical look at the political crisis in Nicaragua.

It shows the involvement of the United States in the revolution during the late 1970s and 1980s through the perspective of pilot Barry Seal, who, for the right price, delivers guns to Nicaragua on behalf of the CIA, and cocaine into the U.S. on behalf of the Colombian cartel. Somewhere in between, Seal also works for the DEA.

Tom Cruise offers an engaging interpretation as Barry Seal, piloting the plane and doing all the stunts throughout the film. Cruise explains what drew him to the character:

“He just couldn’t help himself,” Cruise said. “He just had to live this life. He literally when you are talking about someone living on the edge, he didn’t even realize he was on the edge. He was just living life and not really thinking of necessary ramifications and what’s going to happen.”

As in most of his action film projects, Cruise pushes his boundaries.

“I don’t make a movie just to make a movie,” he said. “It’s not what interests me. What interests me is the passion of cinema, the passion of storytelling. That’s when it gets very exciting, not just a job. I love this too much.”  (VOA)

New Delhi, August 16, 2017: The famous monument from the Mughal era, Taj Mahal is once more in contention as the Central Information Commission (CIC) has requested the Central government to clear up unequivocally whether it is a tomb or a Shiva Temple. An RTI came to the CIC regarding the same, in response to which the quasi-constitutional body solicited answers from the culture minister.

But where did this question come from and what is the source?

According to some historians, Taj Mahal was incipiently a Shiva Temple offered to the Mughals as a form of the gift by a Rajput king. The hypothesis says that the temple was later formed into the monument that dwells graves of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and his adored wife Mumtaz Mahal, mentioned IndiaNews.

In 2015, a case was recorded in Agra by six lawyers, requesting that the tomb ought to be given over to Hindus for worship. The litigation solicited to forbid Islamic religious actions performed in the monument and remove the graves.

PN Oak, a revisionist historian also made the claim in his 1989  book “Taj Mahal” that the name Taj Mahal was procured from a Sanskrit word “Tejo Mahalay’ meaning a Shiva Temple.

The Cultural Minister Mahesh Sharma denied the claims in response to the question put forward to him that the Seventh wonder of the world was a Shiva Temple.
