Govt insensitivity towards the protection of animals leads to Peaceful Car March by Dhyan Foundation in the Capital

Govt insensitivity towards the
Dhyan Foundation (aided by PFA) held Peaceful Car March on 7th April to urge the respective government offices to immediately act and take action against the deplorable conditions of Cows and its progeny.  The two states offices being visited today were Haryana for the Illegal Slaughtering and smuggling of animals (Mewat) and Kollegal Taluk, Karnataka where severe drought and government inaction is leading to hundreds of cows dying because of starvation.

The rally which saw scores of people from all walks of life, students, journalists, teachers, lawyers, activists, volunteers, top businessmen rallied the State houses of Haryana & Karnataka.
It was concluded at Jagdish Cold Storage, Lawrence Road, where last month Animal activists spotted white skin carcasses in a truck in Keshav Puram area. Further probing led to discovery of calf carcasses in Jagdish Cold Storage and two more illegal slaughterhouses adjacent to it.
Even after the Confirmation by Govt Lab of Cow Meat found in Lawrence Road cold storages, police was slow in action, giving the factory owners ample time to clean up, despite repeated calls from activists. It is just one of the evidence that Cows are being slaughtered and exported.
Similarly, Activists have reported dozens of cases of camel trafficking and innumerable incidences of cattle slaughter and trafficking in Mewat, Haryana. However, there is no concrete action being taken against any of the accused. In spite of a stringent Anti Cow Slaughter Act in Haryana, most of the times it is an uphill task to register an FIR and even in the cases where FIR is lodged, police is slow in action.

Activists have been openly threatened, physically assaulted and even been attacked by weapons with no fear of land. Government laxity or police inaction e.g. no FIR in Beef Biryani case, in spite of full evidence, is merely creating a breeding ground for further crime.

Trans-border cattle trafficking for slaughter is a $500 million trade annually, the stakes are high for the criminals, who are often linked with terrorist movements, fake currency trade, arms smuggling and other anti-national activities.

“The growing ‘mafia-police’ nexus makes it an upward battle – Due to lack of willingness of the state police to help animal activist against armed mafia/anti-national elements, who are working tirelessly for the cause of animals, have no security and are constantly under threat with no police protection at gaushalas (which house rescued cattle) and for the activists on ground”, says activist Sonia Sharma.
“However, some police and administration people are a great help; they go out of their way but majority do not want to enforce the law of the land for reason which are any body’s guess. We, or our volunteers have no security and our constantly under threat”, added Sonia.

While, the situation in Kollegal Taluk, Chamrajnagar District has been all over social media. Severe drought conditions and deplorable state of cattle in the region on account of unavailability of food, water and adequate government aid continues plague the region. Cattle carcasses can be found everywhere, with thousands having succumbed to their deaths and others waiting in line, unless drastic measures are taken immediately.

“It is the responsibility of the State to take care of its animals but since the beginning March, 2017, having received a sluggish response from authorities, Dhyan Foundation has set up temporary and permanent fodder points in various locations including MS Doddi (Kuratihosur), Kallidoddi, Gaanigamangala, Odakehalla & Kumbudukki (MM Hills) as an emergency measure to help cattle” says activist Nikita Anand.

“We request the Government of Karnataka to take into account the urgency of the situation and expedite distribution as well and release funds for future expenses in a time bound manner”, she adds.

YOGA FOR KIDNEY STONES

There are two bean shaped organs in the body, one to the left and the other to the right in the pelvic region, and their function is filtration of the fluids of the body. The residue after filtration is then expelled from the body as urine. I am referring to the kidneys. Kidneys assume greater significance in our lives, given that are body is 60-70% water. And this water needs to be regulated constantly.
The kidneys are so fine an organ that they remove all the solids from the water. Certain solids which are heavy and cannot be expelled completely, get calcified. This leads to kidney stones. When the kidney stones grow in size, they block the top of the kidney or are pushed into the urethra thereby blocking it. Early symptoms are pain. And this pain need not be limited to the lower back area, and may even be experienced in the lower chest area.  This is because when the kidneys gasp for prana, they can put pressure on any nerve in the body. Another symptom is weight gain. When kidneys …

KALKI THE EXTINGUISHER OF EVIL: A GLIMPSE OF THE FINAL INCARNATION

“Whenever and wherever there is a decline in righteousness, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of vice – at that time I descend Myself. In order to deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to re-establish the principles of dharma, I advent Myself epoch after epoch” Since the beginning, Lord Vishnu incarnated in various forms on earth from time to time. Whenever there was a disbalance in Creation, it was ensured that the avatars worked on rectifying it. The avatar was bespoke of the yuga as the yugas needed to change with time. He took birth as a Brahmin (Parshurama) to annihilate the corrupt Kshatriyas, as a prince(Rama) to slay the demon king of Lanka and as a cowherd(Krishna) who executed the cunning Kansa and steered the Pandavas to victory. Lord Vishnu is said to have ten avatars (dashavatars) in the present cycle of four yugas. Now, being the Kalyug, is the time when the tenth and the final avatar of Lord Vishnu will take birth on Earth. If we …

SHED YOUR COLONIAL MINDSET OVER COWS

The British punctured our roots, killed cows and poisoned our minds, and left behind generations of ‘brown Englishmen’, writes Yogi Ashwini Macaulay in his infamous ‘Minute’ in 1835 changed the course of how Bharat (or India as we call it now) would be perceived by its countrymen. He planned to uproot the Indian culture through English education. He advocated education for a selected class and wanted to create eminent clerks to serve the lower cadres in British administration, “Brown Englishmen”. The fact that most of us find it perfectly normal to address him, who ravaged our culture, as “Lord” Macaulay and find the idea of cow, which nourishes us, being our mother or goddess absurd, is a direct indicator of the fact that Macaulay succeeded in brainwashing us. A brainwash to the extent that no matter what we write here or whatever stats we share, the Brown Englishmen, even if they make it through the end of this article, would still not find anything wrong in killing cows or eating bee…
