It is a celebrated fact that all the countries across the globe are loved by their residents. However our mother nation, India deserves great reverence and love from her children as she is not an ordinary country. Apart from being an exceptional country, it’s a great mother too. And her three unique virtues- Tolerance, Kindness, and Forgiveness, make her the greatest and the holiest place in the world.

The book A call to 1.25 billion children of Mother India apprises the readers, why India should be showered with immense love and reverence. It divulges into the exceptional greatness of India in earlier times on various counts and why India should regain her outstanding position in the world soon.

India has fed one-fourth of world’s population cumulatively since time immemorial, in spite of having only about 2.5-3.0 per cent of world’s land-area. Tolerance of the inhabitants of the country and abundance of water & food, coupled with favorable climate allowed innumerable people to migrate and settle here in earlier times.

From ancient era to the eighteenth century, India’s share in the world-GDP was always more than 20 per cent. Just before the onset of British rule, India’s share in world-GDP was around 25 per cent, which reduced to a mere 3 per cent in 1947. Likewise, the country’s share in the world-trade reduced to 1.5 per cent in 1947 from more than 60 per cent in seventeenth century.

India was dominating in almost all the fields – from Mathematics to Metaphysics, from Metallurgy to Medicine, and from Music to Martial arts.

Therefore, our love for India should be at the highest degree. And that immense love should be turned into action by launching a long-term intensive movement for quality & productivity in the country.

The book elaborates the concept & methodology for this world-changing grand movement for quality & productivity, in which every citizen should actively participate. The book also urges Indians to help in eliminating poverty, to make the country clean and to fight against corruption.

This work is an attempt to mobilize Indians for ultimately re-making India as the best nation in the world in all aspects.

    what the author is trying to tell us through his book is to adapt to Hindutva version of kindness , tolerance and forgiveness. 20 millions of mother india went hungry in 2015 . Farmers suicide unabated. Millions of workers and educated youth without jobs. Social discrimination against poor and Dalits galore. The author doesn’t know what kindness , tolerance and forgiveness mean to these millions of sufferers everyday . Not a worthy book .

As Trump proposes changes in H1-B visa, India continues to engage with US

India is continuing to engage with the US over the H-1B visa, largely availed of by Indian IT companies, after the Trump administration proposed changes to the programme, a senior official said on Thursday.

“It is a very important topic for us and that is the reason why we have time and again at various levels, we have taken up this matter with the US side,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said in response to queries by journalists here.

Kumar said that most recently, the issue was raised during the first ever India-US 2+2 Ministerial Meeting held here last month that was attended by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defence Secretary Jim Mattis.

On Wednesday, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said that the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) plans to come out with its new proposal by January 2019.

The DHS said it was also proposing to remove from its regulations certain H-4 spouses of H-1B non-immigrants as a class of aliens eligible for employment authorisation.

The move to end the rule could have an impact on more than 70,000 H-4 visa holders, who have work permits.

The H-4 visas are issued by the USCIS to immediate family members (spouse and children under 21 years of age) of the holders of H-1B visa.

The DHS said it will propose to revise the definition of speciality occupation to increase focus on obtaining the best and the brightest foreign nationals via the H-1B programme.

It will also “revise the definition” of employment and employer-employee relationship to “better protect” US workers and wages, the DHS said.

In his remarks on Thursday, Kumar said that India is closely engaged with the US administration as well as the US Congress on this matter.

Stating that there are certain bills which have been introduced, he, however, said that “it is important to note that none of these bills have been passed so far”.

“When we have engaged with the US, we have emphasised that our partnership which we have in the digital sphere have been mutually beneficial,” the spokesperson said.

“We have highlighted the role which has been played by the highly skilled Indian professionals who have actually contributed to the growth and development of the US economy,” he stated.

“And also they have helped the US to maintain a competitive edge in the world towards innovation and science and technology.” (IANS)
