Gujarat was ruled by Narendra Modi from 2001 onwards. I have visited Gujarat some where in the middle of the span 2000-2013. I visited Surat, the biggest city in Gujarat after the capital city. I didn’t feel that Gujarat is a developed state. Common people are still under poverty. There are many industries. I believe as per Modi, development means – Industry and that’s not actual development. When the life of common people becomes easy and developed we can say the state is developed.
The Life of minorities is very pathetic in Gujarat, Muslims. The current charge is nearly 10 Rupees per unit in Gujarat. The police officers are fully corrupted. I believe one of the most corrupted police force is of Gujarat. I am sharing this just not based on the news from the paid Medias, but based on the discussions, I had with people who were there in Gujarat and still in Gujarat.
As per Modi, development means giving license and loans to any Industry without much enquiry and control from the GOVT. making the life of common people pathetic and exploiting the nature. Nature is being exploited extensively in Gujarat. You may remember the issues Kerala GOVT. Chief whip PC George has brought forward weeks before regarding the relations between the Politicians in Kerala, Gujarat GOVT. and the industrialists in Gujarat from other states.
Poll your Votes:
There are a lot that the Govt. can do in country level, state level and constituency level. We should make reforms to elctoral rules as well.
1.Negative voting should be mad more effective.
2.The constituencies has to be reformed based on districts and not based on the current constituencies which are defined based on the winning critera for UDF and LDF.
3.Camera system and Punching system should be implemented effectively in all GOVT. offices. If the official has not punched in to the office for more than 4 hours, it should be concidered as leave or he should have some meetings arranged outside the Punching system. A central repository for storing Punching dta for all Govt. offices.
4.Compalint registering system should be effectively implemented, in such a way, people can escalate up to the top management level. Compalinst should be tracked through online and phone system.
5.Political Murders should be taken as more serious. The police and Govt should take such crimes with more severity and identify the root crime person and should be arrested and given the maximum punishement.
6.GOVT. should never say that, only based on some complainst it will take action(our Kerala chief minister says this sometimes) especially in case of murders(political and non political) and sexual harrasments.
7.Finacial crimes by Poltical leaders should be treated with high severity and bigger punishments should be given.
8.Crimes by police officers should be given more sever punishement.
Renewable energy is energy that comes from resources which are continually replenished such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat. About 16% of global final energy consumption comes from renewable resources.
The share of renewables in electricity generation is around 19%, with 16% of electricity coming from hydroelectricity and 3% from new renewables.
Fatima is a dreadful ultimatum to the world to stop sinning. The enormity of mankind’s rebellion against God and God’s infinite hatred of sin is the foundation of the Fatima message. In His infinite mercy, God gives the world one last hope in the Immaculate Heart of Mary (Vision of Fatima). If you don’t know what happened at Fatima, Portugal in 1917, find
Imprimatur dated Sept. 24, 1956“A dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat; which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows; and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knees. Furthermore, dresses of transparent materials are improper.”(The Cardinal Vicar of Pius XII)
To say that “…modesty is a matter of custom” is just as wrong as to say that, “…honesty is a matter of custom.” Pope Pius XII
St. Padre Pio and Modesty
Padre Pio wouldn’t tolerate low-necked dresses or short, tight skirts, and he forbade his spiritual daughters to wear transparent stokings. Each year his severity increased. He stubbornly dismissed them from his confessional, even before they set foot inside, if he judged them to be improperly dressed. On some mornings he drove away one after another, until he ended up hearing very few confessions. His brothers observed these drastic purges with certain uneasiness and decided to fasten a sign on the church door;
Let us avoid the slightest danger of offending God in this area or of being an occasion of temptation for our neighbor. May the fashions of the world not be the model for our attire, but rather the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Saints.
Let us follow the Standards of Modesty in Dress, and remember the words of Our Lady to blessed Jacinta Marto of Fatima ………..
,.…”the sins which bring most souls to hell are the sins of the flesh. Certain fashions are going to be introduced which will offend Our Lord very much…the Church has no fashions; Our Lord is always the same…”
“Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you, save souls”. She was probably foreseeing the explosion of obscenity to come in the mass media, many decades later.
It is remarkable that a poor village boy, who couldn’t pass his exams in the
seminary, later became a universal symbol of the Church’s clergy. John Vianney
reminds us that the true love of Christ can powerfully manifest itself through
guileless prayer and service. This St. Vianney was extremely caring regarding modest
dressing. He once called the parent of girls who wear immodest dress: “Useless
parents. Let the Curse of God fall on you similar to a lightening.” He added
don’t come to the Church after doing this immoral activity.
2521… Modesty means refusing to unveil what should remain hidden. It is ordered to chastity to whose sensitivity it bears witness. It guides how one looks at others and behaves toward them in conformity with the dignity of persons and their solidarity.2522…. Modesty is decency. It inspires ones choice of clothing. It keeps silence or reserve where there is evident risk of unhealthy curiosity. It is descreet. (italics CM)2523. There is a modesty of the feelings as well as of the body…. Modesty inspires a way of life which makes it possible to resist the allurements of fashion and the pressures of prevailing ideologies.
It can very well be that a woman can be very devout, but dressing immodestly because she is forced to be part of the culture.Unfortunately in today’s culture of radical feminism, women wan’t to be totally free, even to the point of ignoring such basic principles of morality. Radical feminism is a poison from the devil, who first poisoned Eve in the garden.
It has undergone a rapid profanation especially in the 1960’s – and has turned out to be a culture of death(Pope John Paul II) which is lacking Love (Pope Benedict XVI).
LORD Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, send now your spirit upon the earth. Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations that they may be preserved from degeneration, disaster and war. May the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary, be our Advocate. Amen.
Inspired by the Joynet October Rosary chain, we started chain rosary in Dec 2011 in our company. As far as I remember, it was also started as a preparation for Christmas. Any way we continued to be a part of the chain for an year.
It was really coincident that we gathered together around on – Dec First 2012. I belive, this gathering named ‘Right shift’ was really a fruitful gathering. I feel its very pleasant that we were able to gather together at POC, Palarivattom, as its the official departmental area of Kerala Catholic Church.
Many families from our company gathered together at POC. It was very inspiring that their Kids joining together to play around, irrespective of the age.: )
The main resources were:
1. Fr. Jose Uppani(Former Director of Chittoor Retreat Centre)
2. Bearly Earnest KYCT
3. Prejomy(Our joynet meber from algeria) , Wife and 4 Kids.
4. Renjith Antony(An IT professional converted from Hindu religion)
5. Shygan Chettan – Music
The support given to us from the POC authorities inspired us much. Especially, Fr. Jaison the KCBC, Youth commission director extended his tremendous help to us. Also the JYIO has extended there help in many technical things. The JY infopark and Kerala leadership helped us in finding many resources for the program. Fr. Uppani and team also helped us in finding resources for the program. We thank the joynet members and other charismatic leaders, Shalom etc for their extended prayer support to us.
Lets pray that this will be a starting point for the evangelisation of Professionals.
Communalism is a very dangerous attitude for a society. It was the policy of Devide and Rule by foreign countries. When Muslim League asked for the Minister, many congress leaders like V.D. Satheesan, TN Prathapan, Ramesh Chennithalla. Muraleedharan etc viewed it in the views of Religion and its really dangerous. It is really dangerous that these leaders are seeing everythings in the eyes of religion. Muslime Leage a Party with half the no. of MLA compared to Congress Party has the right to get 50 percent of Ministers that the Congress part has. And they will ask for it. In the same way Congress can also make many argumentsbased on party strength and the conciderations that has to be given to other small parties also. But it should be based on the head count of Muslim MLAs.
Alcohol is a Social hazard and it has to be banned in every form iclduing Toddy and foreign liqour. This is not just the stand of Muslim Leage, but the stand of all Religionsa dn good people who is against social Evils. Its really dangerous that Ramesh chennithala and some Congress leaders seeing this also in the eyes of Religion. They are supporting social evils like toddy.
First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you. — Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald.
Alcohol (ethanol) is a drug and may be classified as a sedative, tranquilliser, hypnotic or anaesthetic depending upon the quantity consumed. It is the only drug whose self-induced intoxication is socially acceptable. Consumption of alcohol is legal in many societies and its abuse is a societal problem. Alcoholism is characterised by compulsive swallow despite clear, deleterious social and medical consequences.
It is to be noted that majority of the accidents are because of this alcohol.
Hazard to the Poor Family
It has to be noted that Alcohol especially toddy is affecting the financial strength of Malayalee familees.
Increase of Crime
Majority of crimes are taking place under the control of Alochol.
According to the World Health Organisation, every year about 2.5 million people die from alcohol-related diseases all over the world, accounting for 3.8 per cent of total deaths. Alcohol-related heart disease, cancer, accidents and suicides contribute to these deaths. Further, alcohol causes loss of 69.4 million disability adjusted life years (DALYs) annually in the world. (One DALY is “one lost year of healthy life”) Alcohol abuse is more or less a universal problem. There is hardly any effort to discourage the consumption all over the world. Neither are there any statutory warnings.
Every organ/system of the human body gets affected. Daily consumption of alcohol in large amounts leads to cardiac problems, viz., arrhythmia (irregular heart beats), cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart), etc. Heavy alcohol consumption can raise the blood pressure, leading to alcohol-induced hypertension.
A progressive illness
Alcoholism is a progressive illness and damages the central nerves system (CNS), resulting in varying degrees of dysfunction — deficit cognitive functioning, dementia, etc.
People given to prolonged binge drinking are prone to strokes — a condition of haemorrhage or deficient blood supply to brain.
Alcoholic abuse is also responsible for a variety of psychiatric symptoms, viz. anxiety, depression, confusion, panic disorders, bipolar disorders and narcissism.
Chronic alcoholics develop polyneuropathy — a disorder of peripheral nerves.
Chronic, heavy and daily drinking alcoholics develop skeletal myopathy which is irreversible even on practising abstinence.
Alcohol ingestion causes a feeling of early warmth, then increased sweating, then lowered body temperature — hypothermia (cold damage) and, finally, death.
Alcohol is responsible for cancer of the oesophagus and chronic gastritis.
Heavy consumers develop chronic pancreatitis.
Due to mal-absorption of food, alcoholics develop frequent diarrhoeal episodes.
Ten to 20 per cent of alcoholics develop liver problems, viz., fatty infiltration, hepatitis and cirrhosis.
They suffer from jaundice, abdominal pain, edema in different parts of the body, gynaecomastia (enlarged breast in men), and atrophy of the testes.
Women with alcoholic liver disease may develop menstrual problems and signs or virilisation (male features).
The prognosis in alcoholic liver disease is dismal. Long-term consumption leads to impotence in men and other sexual complications.
Children born to alcoholic women suffer from the fetal alcoholic syndrome (FAS). They suffer from a triad of abnormality — a cluster of craniofacial abnormalities, dysfunction of the central nervous system and stunting of growth.
As the child ages, there is a manifestation of hearing, language and speech problems. A sudden decrease in alcohol consumption leads to anxiety, fits, sleep problems and life threatening problems like delirium tremens (DT).
The alcoholic ocntent in different beverages is as below:
|Brandy||40 – 50|
|Whisky||40 – 55|
|Rum||40 – 55|
|10 – 22|
|Toddy||5 to 10|
|Beer Cereals||4 – 8|
On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.
5 For John baptized with[a] water, but in a few days you will be baptized with[b] the Holy Spirit.”
6 Then they gathered around him and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?”
7 He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.
8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Holy Mary, Blessed Mother, Patroness of America, we have prayed to you for generations for the conversion of Russia. Thanks to you and our Heavenly Father that is beginning to become a reality.
Dear Mother, I cannot help but think we have overlooked the need to pray for the conversion of America.
You and your Son must look down on us with a sad and heavy heart when you see all the family break-ups, the misuse of the sacred gift of love and sex, the lack of respect for your Holy Name and that of Jesus, the misuse of drugs, the political corruption, and all the other evils in America today.
So, Dear Mother, with this in mind, please present our prayers to your Son, ask Him to grant the turning around of our ways and the conversion of those who are not already walking in the way of the Lord.
We ask this in Jesus Name, AMEN.
