Natwar Singh Autobiography

 Natwar Singh AutobiographyNatwar Singh, former Congress leader, today released his autobiography tilted , One Life Is Not Enough – An Autobiography Natwar Singh Autobiography. It’s another thing that the Jagran Josh, the education site of Dainik Jagran, wants to call the book as the autobiography by former External Affairs Minister and ‘Senior Congress Party Leader Natwar Singh’. Natwar Singh Autobiography When the fact is Mr. Singh was suspended from the Congress party in 2006. He resigned from Congress in 2008. The reason for the resignation was the Paul Volcker report of 2005 , investigating the corruption in the Oil-for-Food program. It stated inter alia that “India’s Congress party” and Natwar Singh’s family were non-contractual beneficiaries of the Oil for Food programme. Mr. Singh was disappointed with Sonia Gandhi for having failed to defend or support him. He announced his resignation at a BJP-sponsored rally of Natwar Singh’s own Jat community held at Jaipur in the presence of Vasundhara Raje, then Chief Minister of Rajasthan. On this occasion, Natwar Singh not only asserted his innocence but also launched a bitter attack on Sonia Gandhi for having failed to defend or support him. He and his son jagat Singh joined Mayawati’s BSP in 2008, only to be expelled by that party within four months (in November 2008) for alleged indiscipline, anti-party activities and “lack of faith” in the ideology of the Bahujan Samaj Movement. At present, Natwar Singh’s son Jagat Singh is a BJP MLA from Rajasthan. In this light, Natwar Singh can hardly even be a former Congressman.

The book is reported to be critical of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her style of working. Mr. Singh believes that the book has touched some raw nerve of Sonia Gandhi and that has upset her to the extent that she came out to comment on the book. Yesterday, commenting on Natwar Singh’s book, Sonia Gandhi said,

“I will write my own book and then you will come to know everything … the only way truth will come out is if I write … I am serious about it and I will be writing.”

This morning many Hindi Newspapers published a front page news, quoting Natwar Singh’s autobiography. The headline read : Sonia declined PM post due to fearful Rahul, not conscience: Natwar Singh . Such articles claimed that all the reports regarding Sonia declining PM post by listening to her conscience are rubbish. In fact, it was the Rahul who was afraid for his mother’s Life; and believed that if she becomes the PM she will be assassinated. Although, you will be viewing hour long programmes on various news channels today and tomorrow; publishing this on the front page is foolish as well. As , it doesn’t matter whether Sonia Gandhi listened to her son or the MPs; what matters is she didn’t become the PM when she could have. Sonia Gandhi may have refused to take charge as Prime Minister in 2004 when the UPA-I came to power due to strong opposition from son Rahul Gandhi; but still, what public purpose the so called revelation serves. When country must be debating the present Government’s stand on inflation, GM crops and electricity (and availability of coal with the Thermal Power plants), the media is discussing the motives behind ‘Sonia declining PM post in 2004′. That apart, how can Natwar Singh say for sure it was not her conscience?

Talking about important issues, in coming months the country may face severe drought in some parts of the country. Low rainfall will also mean low hydro power generation in the country. This means that , the country already reeling under power shortage will see the power situation aggravate in near future. In reply to a question regarding the availability of coal with the Public sector power generation Companies, the Government portrayed a picture of severe coal shortage in the power generation companies. The Government attributed this to Coal scam during the previous Government. In order to cross check the Government’s response, a TV News channel enquired about the coal availability and stock situation with the power generation Public sectors (In India public sectors make most of thermal power). In a written reply to the News Channel, all the public sectors said that up to now, they have received 111 percent of coal promised to them. This means if they were promised 100 tonnes of coal by July 2014, they received 111 tonnes. Is this scarcity? They are getting more than what they had been promised. There’s a reason why the Government is blaming everything on coal scam, as it promised moon to the nation, and since that’s not possible, it’s looking for some scapegoat. If as aware citizens of the country we need to be guarded against any lies, then these Lies qualify to that definition. Not whether Sonia Gandhi took some decision by listening to her conscience or to her children.

A couple of years ago , someone in our locality (a village) got a lucrative offer. A telecom service provider had surveyed the locality and found this man’s house standing where it wanted to set up a Mobile tower. Since this guy had vacant space adjacent to his house, he happily accepted the offer. When the tower got running, the neighbours found something to complain about — A big inverter . Since the tower needed 24 hour power supply, hence every time there’s a power outage , the inverter started buzzing. Although, similar towers stand on roof tops and premises of houses in the metros, the tower became intolerable to the neighbours.  Of course, the jealousy or fears for one’s health might be fueling that intolerance, but very soon the situation went out of hand, and the police had to be called. Since the man belonged to the majority caste , the police managed to calm down the protesters , and the tower is still standing there. There is also a likelihood that the police might have resolved the matter to the satisfaction of the mobile company.

Imagine a situation where the person in the above dispute was of a minority caste, religion or status; the matter would have snowballed to a difficult situation. Had been the guy of another religion, selfish people and groups would have reached the locality on the name of religion.

This is exactly how Communal riots are created in India.

People are both good and bad. Good people outnumber the bad ones. But still people have grievances and issues with one another. Human traits like competition, jealousy, desire to grow are some of the reasons behind these grievances and issues. But since, human problems are aplenty, so are the reasons for disputes between people. In short, 999 out of 1000 times they are not religious or caste based. Unfortunately they are made to look like one.

And if truckloads of people from outside don’t enter into a dispute, communal violence will never take place. Why? As people know what their dispute is.

There are few recent examples of creation or the attempt to create communal riots, or distract the attention from the main issue,

Srinagar Hydropower Project in Srinagar, Garhwal is supported by Locals. They see it as their ticket to a good life. A political party keeps trying to stall the project , on the name of a Temple which will get submerged. These so called temple supporters keep transporting people from outside to frustrate the Dam’s work. The influx of outsiders increase every time there’s some upcoming election.


Take recent example of Kanth, Moradabad. The issue was a trivial dispute between the villagers. But when Sangeet Som, Suresh Rana (of Muzaffar Nagar riots fame)and Sadhvi Prachi started reaching the indiscreet village temple, the entire issue started becoming communal. If there had been no political interest in Kanth, no one would have travelled from Muzaffarnagar or some other pace to do the jalabhishek of Lord Shiva (water oblation to Lord Shiva) in Kanth. Fortunately, the villagers of Kanth became aware in time of such selfish intentions , and there is no loss of lives and property. 

The day after violence and rioting in UP’s Saharanpur, a key seat bearer of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJUM) (the Youth political Wing of BJP) , posted a communal post on Facebook. He was arrested and later released on the pressure of the supporters. Don’t know, what good any violence can do to the people. But some people are always ready to start one.

Riots and communal riots in India have time and again shown that it’s the outsiders who destroy the harmony of a place. Ayodhya, has stopped developing since The Mosque demolition, as the business links between Hindus and Muslims was broken for ever. Before and even still, Muslims in Ayodhya are the makers of fine handicrafts and hindus are those who retail them. The absence of any one, affects the entire arrangement.

Any kind of riots destroy valuable human lives, property . They also destroy local cultures, traditions, business ties and harmony. One brilliant example of the destruction of local cultures and traditions is: Every time some Hindu Akhara or temple committee adopts a village temple , the temple loses the age old local traditions. First our indiscrete simple temples in Uttarakhand lose their local deities, then they lost every right they could have on their temple. The ban on Animal sacrifice may be hailed by many among us, but I see it as the destruction of our (Uttarakhand’s) age old traditions and an unnecessary interference on our local traditions. Think over it.

Every now and then we are witness to some study, which prescribes some life style change to extend our lives. Is there any need to listen to such prescriptions? Yes it’s. As we’re increasingly becoming sedentary. Much different from our ancestors, who surpass us in activity. For this reason, the tangible link between activity or exercise and Human health is a point of focus of the researchers.

Healthy Human Run 5 minutes a Day and Live Longer | StudyA new research by the researchers from the Iowa State University, the University of South Carolina, Louisiana State University and the University of Queensland School of Medicine, says that,

People who jogged or ran for as little as five minutes a day reduced their risk of premature death by nearly one-third and extended their lives by about three years.

The study began with dividing the participants , 55000, in two groups — those who claimed themselves as Runners and those who don’t. The Study was carried on for 6 years. Compared to those who didn’t run, those who did were 30 percent less likely to die of any cause during the course of the study. They were also 45 percent less likely to die as a result of cardiovascular disease.

The above findings were arrived at taking into account the people’s smoking and drinking habits, how old they were when they enrolled in the study, their family’s health history and their other exercise habits.

And here is the surprise. The study found that the risk of dying early (24 percent), because of not running was even more than the mortality risk associated with being overweight or obese (16 percent), having a family history of cardiovascular disease (20 percent), or having high cholesterol (6 percent). In addition, increases the risk of incidence of cancer, diabetes and untold depression(10 percent).

Another surprise the study offers is with regarding time duration of Running. The researchers found that running for 50 minutes over a seven-day period (7 minutes a day ) and for more than 175 minutes a week (25 minutes a day), over the course of a week, makes no difference. That’s running for 7 minutes a day is as good as 25 minutes a day. The benefits of running are pretty much the same for all runners, irrespective of the time they run for .

The research also found that even low intensity running, that ‘s running at lower doses or slower speeds, is also seen to be associated with significant mortality benefits. The study found that the mere act of running imparts health benefits of Runners compared to non-runners.

Conclusion: In order to reduce the risk of premature death, all it took was 30 to 59 minutes of running per week, the researchers calculated.

Afterthoughts on the Study findings : 

We humans always knew the importance of exercise. But the exigencies of the modern day living took us away from activity. Eating always went with activity. Animals are a perfect example of this wisdom. An obese animal is rarity in wild.

Activity is one of the crucial factors in deciding our health, as activity like running, brisk walking , weight training keeps the body active and responsive to any threats posed by diseases, eating, smoking drinking etc. For this reason, people who regularly play sports are more healthy than those who don’t.

Hence for a healthy body and mind; and for longevity , exercise 5 minutes a day. If you can’t run then Brisk Walk for 15 minutes a day.
