Where Punjab is going?

Punjab election 2007 is going to poll on the 13th Feb and therefore both the main parties Akali Dal-BJP combine and Congress are putting their best in the campaigns to win this election. At present both the parties are busy in making claims about what they will do if they win election. In this Punjab Election both the parties are promising 24 hrs of electric supply in the state. However in previous terms both the parties has remained failure in adding any significant power generation facilities in Punjab.

The last five years of congress rule have totally ignored this important fact of electricity and therefore this claim of providing 24 hours of electricity does not hold any significance. Electricity is becoming a crucial need for any growth in the state and so far electricity has remained in a total neglected state. Claim may be whatever but one thing is clear that no relief can reach the people of Punjab before two to three years because it is minimum time required to start functioning of new generation projects in Punjab.

In future Punjab needs to make its own power generating facilities then to purchase it from the other states because in future it may cost very heavily to the state resources or Punjab can start joint projects with the other states with power sharing agreement. Punjab may still hold the crown of richest state of India on papers but in actuality it becoming a state of many poor and few rich people. Today the main farmer community of the Punjab is in very bad shape and it is struggling due to bad crops and decreasing fertility of the land.

Whichever government may come into power in Punjab, however the major need is to search other better alternatives for the growth of the Punjab because today the dependency on the farmers and NRI's is not going to help Punjab much in future. Punjab has many resources which it can exploit for growth but if these opportunities are ignored today then it will be hard to revive them again. We all can hope that in the next Punjab Election the party which comes to us for votes must have done something for us in actuality.

Book review- "Wings of Fire"

“Wings of Fire” is an autobiography of former President of India and an eminent scientist Shri A P J Abdul Kalam. It is very important for every Indian and especially for youth to read this autobiography. It is not because he is a former president and an eminent scientist, therefore every Indian should read it, however this autobiography really has good knowledge to share with us, a knowledge which is very difficult to get elsewhere. This autobiography is different in many ways as it tells us many lessons with true examples. This book tells us the story of a Muslim boy, who became the President of a Hindu dominated country by hard world and dedication.

It tells us, how common Hindu and Muslim respect each other’s religion. “Wings of Fire” is the story of a small boy achieving his dreams despite all the odds. This real story tells us the role of family, re

How it is to be free like a bird?

When ever I saw birds in the sky, I always wander why we are not free like them. We are most advances species on the earth but when comes to the freedom point we have least. Our most of the life is determined by others, directly or indirectly. A bird does not need anyone’s permission before flying. He has no direction to chose. His only aim is the search of food. He doesn’t have very big dreams. Bird’s lives life in today. Unlike them we are more burdened by the outcomes of tomorrow and in this way we spoil our present also. People go on doing hard work for securing their future. However some of them are never able to see this future. In childhood we work as par our parents and try to fulfill their dreams. In adulthood we are burdened by the family and children. On the reverse birds allows their children to be self sufficient and free them to choose their own directions. The bird’s does not have to choose any religion to follow and they are not guided by any god. They live truly in nat
