Punjab Assembly Election Battle 2012

Though, Punjab Assembly Election 2012 are six months away; however, election battle has clearly started in state with both main contenders of power Akali-BJP alliance and Congress starting pre-poll campaigns. In earlier article Punjab Assembly Election 2012, I tried to describe present political situation in Punjab. There are total of 117 assembly seats in Punjab and any party or alliance needs to win 59 seats to make next government in state. 

In last 2007 Punjab Assembly Election, Akali Dal-BJP alliance came to power by winning 67 seats out of total 117 seats (Akali Dal 48 and BJP 19). In same election, Congress won 44 seats while 5 seats were won by independent candidates whereas other opposition parties like CPM and BSP failed to win a single seat (To know more read Final Result Punjab Election-2007).

In 2012 election, we will again see main fight between Akali-BJP alliance and Congress. If we go by 2009 Loksabha Election Results then Congress looks in strong position because Congress won 8 Loksabha seats out of total 13 seats while SAD won 5 and BJP got just 1 seat). 2009 Loksabha Election Results of Punjab provide some glimpse that people of Punjab are not totally happy with present SAD-BJP government. Though, after 2009 Loksabha election Punjab has seen many positive changes.

In Punjab, it is history of alternate win of SAD or Congress; therefore, if we go with this trend then Congress has good chances this time. Overall, it is going to be a furious election battle in Punjab with both SAD-BJP alliance and Congress working hard to win it.

A new 15 year old Buddha

In Nepal, a new Buddha is in making. Recently a person called Ram Bahadur Bomjon from Nepal has been fasting and meditating for the last six months beneath a tree. In him, people are seeing a new Buddha. This incident has happened in the Bara district of Nepal. Thousands of pilgrims have started visiting this place. There is news that Ram has not broken his fast  even a single time .  For the last six months, he has not moved, even to relieve himself. His place is not much away from the place where the original Buddha had done his meditation. According to Ram, he does this meditation because a snake has beaten him. He is also asking people for not saying him Buddha because he is telling that he is not having the powers like Buddha.. kgw. arvindkatoch1 Read - 15-year-old Buddha to controversial Figure 

15-year-old Buddha to Controversial Figure

Fourteen Years Back, I wrote this article that A new 15-year-old Buddha . I wrote this article after reading a piece of news about a 15-year-old boy, Ram Bahadur Bomjon. At that time, people were worshiping him as a new Budhha or as an incarnation of Buddha. In both Hinduism and Buddhism, it is common to find the concept of rebirth or incarnation, and sometimes, these concepts or beliefs are misused by others. The action of meditation under a tree for straight six of a 15-year-old boy Ram Bahadur forced people to believe that he is not an ordinary man and he must be an incarnation of Buddha.  Many such things and articles were written about him and soon, Ram Bahadur Bomjon become a renowned spiritual leader or Guru. However, after fourteen years, I see his life is marked with many controversies like missing devotees.  Ram Bahadur Bomjom came to the limelight when he claimed to have meditated without moving from his place and without eating anything for months under a tree. People start

Benefit of Adding Fastag to the Vehicle (Paytm Fastag)

  Today, India is progressing in every field and we are seeing many new improvements coming to our lives. One such improvement is mandatory to use of fastag on all vehicles in India. With this change, we can see the saving of time of commuters and saving of valuable fuel. As per the Indian transport minister, with the use of fastag on vehicles, we can hope to see a saving of Rs 20,000 crore. I hope that it will improve the management of vehicles on the various toll plazas. I have many bad experiences on various toll plazas due to manual operation and high rush.  Already, toll collectors and people are finding this scheme of fastag very helpful. I have already installed fastag on my both vehicles two years back. So far, Paytm fastag is the most used fastag in India because it is linked to the Paytm wallet which makes it easy to add cash and make payments. I am also using Paytm Fastag on one of my main vehicles and my experience is very smooth with it. It is very easy to buy Paytm Fasta
