जल है तो कल है, जल बचाएं जिंदगी बचाएं, जल ही जीवन है जैसे स्लोगन हर तरफ देखने को मिल जाते हैं. लेकिन क्या सिर्फ नारों से परिस्थितियां बदली जा सकती हैं! पानी को बचाने के लिए हमने क्या कदम उठाए, यह बात सबसे अधिक महत्व रखती है. पानी बचाने की दिशा में की गई हमारी एक छोटी-सी कोशिश न सिर्फ दुनिया के स्तर पर प्रभाव डाल सकती है बल्कि वह कोशिश औरों के लिए प्रेरणा का स्रोत भी बन सकती है.
मशहूर धारणा है कि किसी बड़े बदलाव की शुरुआत खुद से होती है. ऐसा होना भी चाहिए, क्योंकि अगर हम उस बदलाव की राह में ईमानदार नहीं रहे तो फिर उसमें शामिल होने का कोई मतलब नहीं रह जाता. आँकड़ों की बातें कागजों तक ही रहने दें, यह हमारी-आपकी आँखों के सामने दिख जाता है कि देश की 90 प्रतिशत से भी अधिक आबादी स्वच्छ जल से कोसों दूर है. देश के कई हिस्सों में भूमिगत जल का स्तर इतना नीचे गिर चुका है कि वहां से पानी निकालना नामुमकिन हो गया है. पानी के लिए लंबी कतारों में खड़े इंसानों की तस्वीरें देखकर हम हैरान रह जाते हैं.
ग्लोबल वार्मिंग, प्रदूषण, अंधाधुंध विकास के दौर में हर एक बुनियादी जरूरत पर खतरा पैदा हो गया है. हवा के दूषित होने के साथ-साथ पानी की उपलब्धता खतरे में पड़ती दिखाई दे रही है. हम कैसे जीवन जीने की इस बुनियादी जरूरत का संरक्षण कर सकते हैं, इसके लिए हम स्वयं के स्तर पर इन छोटे-छोटे उपायों को अपना सकते हैं.
1. किचन के पानी को बगीचे में इस्तेमाल करें
किचन में खाना बनाने के दौरान जो भी बेकार पानी बचता है, उसे संरक्षित कर अपने बगीचे में इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं. यह बेकार पानी आपके बगीचे के लिए तो लाभप्रद होगा ही, साथ ही यह स्वच्छ जल के स्टॉक को बचाए रखने में भी मदद करेगा.
2. वाहनों को अनावश्यक न धोएं
कई बार ऐसा देखा गया है कि लोग पानी का मोटर चालू कर अपनी गाड़ियों को नहलाते रहते हैं. इससे आपका वाहन तो ठीक से साफ़ नहीं होता लेकिन पानी की अनावश्यक बर्बादी जरूर हो जाती है. इसके बदले आप भींगे कपड़े से गाड़ी को पोंछ सकते हैं. यह आपके वाहन को साफ़ रखने में मदद करेगा और अनावश्यक जल की बर्बादी को भी रोकने में मदद करेगा.
3. देर तक न नहाएं
कुछ लोगों की आदत होती है बाथरूम में नल चालू कर सिंगिंग करने की. ऐसे में पानी बहता रहता है और उसका सही उपयोग भी नहीं होता. हाल ही में, दक्षिण अफ्रीका दौरे पर गई भारतीय क्रिकेट टीम को सिर्फ दो मिनट तक शॉवर लेने की गुजारिश की गई थी. ऐसा वहां जल की किल्लत की समस्या से लड़ने के लिए किया गया था. आप भी अपने घरों में नहाने का समय निर्धारित कर सकते हैं ताकि बेमतलब पानी को बहने से रोका जा सके.
4. जल का रीयूज करें
जहां तक संभव हो सके, इस्तेमाल किए गए पानी को फिर से उपयोग में लाने की कोशिश करें. जैसे, किचन के पानी को बगीचे में यूज कर लें. नहाने वाले पानी को स्टोर कर गाड़ी धोने में यूज कर लें. कहते हैं कि अगर चाह हो तो राह निकल ही आती है. आप भी अपने मन से ऐसी कुछ तरकीबें निकाल कर पानी को बचाने की कोशिश करते रहें.
5. कटिंग पानी का इस्तेमाल करें
जी हां, कटिंग पानी यानी कि आधा ग्लास या फिर जितने की जरूरत हो. हम अक्सर पीने के लिए पूरा भरा ग्लास लेना पसंद करते हैं, लेकिन पूरा पानी पी नहीं पाते. ऐसे में बाकी बचा पानी फेंक दिया जाता है. आप प्यास के अनुसार जल लेकर अनावश्यक बर्बादी रोक सकते हैं.

The world is turning smart at the speed of per second. Smart age has arrived on the back of digital revolution. Almost every day, New devices are introduced and the old one feels ashamed of its features. To be on the boat of change, you need to be expert in replacing your old devices with the same speed.
I was not so. And, hence faced a full year of frustration, anger and sorrow.
I had bought a Nokia smartphone 5 years ago. At that time, VGA camera and music player inside the mobile was considered a high-class phone. It was very expensive too. It was worth so.
After two and half years, my phone was turning gradually into an outdated one. I was watching people around me buying Smartphones having the features of the Digital camera, mobile TVs and a lot. Every time I saw a friend of mine owning a phone of the new age, I used to think and rethink again and again. Should I say goodbye to my old phone? Oh! It was much worthier than the new ones.
Should I gift it to my relatives? They might gift me a new smartphone in return. That’s a great idea.
I was sure. It was my uncle’s birthday. My birthday was a week later after him. I planned to gift my old phone in new covers. I thought uncle would become happy and he might gift a new age smartphone to me on my upcoming birthday.
I packed my old phone in a new bright cover and decorated the gift very well and handed over to him on his birthday. I saw him smiling while I gave away the gift.
Next Saturday was my turn to receive. I was sure to receive the surprise. Dreams of the new smartphone were not letting me sleep pleasantly. I was making myself prepared to handle the happiness I was going to achieve.
I would do so and so and so from my new smartphone. And the series of emotions marked the morning of my birthday.
The time and uncle came to my house for the birthday party. He wished me but I saw him empty. I became sad. Then I saw the uncle taking out a gift box from his bag. I, however, shadowed my smile. He handed over the box to me. It was very difficult to kill that gap. I was never in the Birthday celebration.
As the party ended, I ran to feel the smartphone. I was sure about that. Yes! I screamed. It was a phone inside the box.
But it was not the new one. It was the same one I had gifted the uncle last week. Along with the phone, There was a five-hundred rupees note and a paper sheet. ‘I am however your uncle, my child!’, was written on the paper. I understood the whole matter. No one was ready to own my old phone. It was so outdated.
Next, I tried to left the phone in a taxi. And said to the family that the phone was stolen. I thought, now they will bring me a new smartphone. They were ready too. Next morning, Doorbell rang. There was a taxi driver who had come to my home to handover the same phone I had left in his taxi.
I asked my friends, posted ads on selling websites, but no one was ready to buy or even take it for free. It was so frustrating.
But it is well-known fact that every dog has its day, mine too.
One day, A cat was trying to enter in the kitchen. Mom was busy, So she asked me to save the milk. I went there in no mood. Suddenly, the cat tried to jump into the kitchen and I threw the phone at the cat. The cat and the phone, both were gone.
Mom was happy to see the milk being saved and I was happy to see the new phone coming. Mom was so happy about the milk that she requested Dad to bring me a new age smartphone.
And, That was the beginning of a new era to me.

I would love to test the Datsun Redi-Go in the city of Varanasi. Rush and broken roads are always a matter of sadness. One thinks many times before going on roads full of jams and pathholes.

Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross – Datsun redi-GO – the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback
“To take a big step, one need a small step in the beginning.”
I had to travel from Varanasi to my home by train. Train was late, So I decided to walk along the platform.
I was surprised to see that there was very very less amount of dirt and debris on its floor in comparison to 5-6 months back. There was regular cleaning done on the platforms. People were throwing the waste at suitable places but not here and there.
You will say what is surprising about this? Could cleaning be a surprise? Yes I know, It’s just a regular practice and the behavior of a common people.
But, It was not practiced outside our houses. People try to keep clean their own houses but not of others. Now, People are joining and co-ordinating their hands and making the impact.
It is surprising because 5 or 6 months before, the scene was totally different. Platforms were just like a house of dirt and debris.
Whether It’s used plastic bottles or wastewater or wasted papers, all was there to malign the beauty of the platform, the junction as well as the city.
Criticism is done at large scale against the Clean India Campaign. People ask about its impact.
I would say that Clean India Campaign has been changing the traditional mindset of people.
What changes I have seen after the launch of Clean India campaign by our Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 02nd of October, 2014, I have witnessed some smaller but very necessary changes in people’s mind as well as at the ground level.
IMPACTS OF CLEAN INDIA CAMPAIGN:-
1. People search for dustbin to throw waste
In earlier time, It was common that people were used to dump waste outside the dustbin. It was familiar to witness the littering anywhere on the road in a large amount.
But now, People dump waste at right place and if they do not find the dustbin, they ask from the people for that.
2. Young minds and hands are changing the scenario
Varanasi or Banaras or Kashi is the spiritual capital of India. Banaras is well-known as the city of streets, Ghats and temples.
Politically, Varanasi is also the parliamentary seat of PM Narendra Modi.
Two young ladies, Temsutula Imsong and Darshika Shah with their team started a initiative “Mission Prabhughat” to clean Ghats of the Banaras. At first, People tried to ignore as well as criticize for their work.
But, when there efforts began to change the scene, people began to join their hands to make the building.
PM himself praised their effort on his twitter account.
3. India can really change
‘INDIA CAN CHANGE’, It was just a slogan. But efforts and changes in Clean India campaign has shown as well as regularly changing people’s traditional mindset.
It is just an example of change what I have been witnessing. There are a lot to come, join and make a clean country.
A gold morning is the combination of unpredictable happiness and refreshing energy. If your morning is good, your day will certainly turn out better. And, a better day makes your life beautiful and happier than before.
To start a day and the busy professional routine, we require a energy backup for whole day, that backup comes from the morning, I must say.
I am an undergraduate student and the necessity of consistent energy and refreshment is well known as well as well-required to me. Continued 6 hours of classes a day can easily make a person badly tired. Besides all, I have to pay much attention on my studies too and that also requires continued energy flow and refreshment in my body. Therefore, I know how a good morning can provide me all that is the required to my body.
My mantra to turn good mornings into gold mornings are very simple and common. Anyone willing to make their morning gold and the day beautiful can easily do it.
Early to rise
To enjoy a morning, you must wake up in the morning. I try to rise in the morning by latest 5 am. At that time, Sun is about to publish its rays in the sky. The whole surroundings looks clear and give me feeling of eternal peace.
Toothbrushing is a very important task. You have to meet people, speak with them and interact with them daily. Your face and tooth tells your impression on the person in front of you.
I always use colgate toothpaste and toothbrushes for cleaning of my mouth. It keeps me refreshed for whole day and I can easily interact with any person.
Watching sunrise on Ghats
I live in the city of Banaras, the spiritual capital of India. It is the city older than history. Banaras is situated on the banks of river Ganges and Ghats on the bank of the river are famous all over the world for its historical importance and scenic beauty.
Watching the Sun rising and making a golden road on the surface of the river is just an immortal memory. I regularly go to Ghats in the morning to enjoy the scene.
It is said that you cannot even worship without food. Then, A morning without food is not possible.
Traditional breakfast of Banaras is Puri, Sabji and Jalebi. You can easily find it anywhere in the Banaras in the morning. It is just tastier than anything else. It has played an important role in turning good mornings into gold mornings.
That is how I turn my good morning into gold morning.
It’s my mantra, What’s yours?
