पानी हूँ पानी रहने दो

कितना शीतल, कितना निर्मल
हिमगिरि के हिम से निकल निकल,
यह निर्मल दूध सा हिम का जल,
कर-कर निनाद कल-कल छल-छल,
तन का चंचल मन का विह्वल
यह लघु सरिता का बहता जल
-गोपाल सिंह नेपाली
जीवन के अस्तित्व के लिए जिस प्रकार हवा का होना बेहद आवश्यक है उसी प्रकार जल भी जीवन का अति आवश्यक हिस्सा है. जल के बिना जीवन अकल्पनीय है.
हम अपने जीवन में प्रतिदिन जल का प्रयोग करते हैं, लेकिन कभी उसकी महत्ता और अमूल्यता पर तनिक भी विचार नहीं करते. यह बात आपको अजीब लग सकती है किंतु सच्चाई से मुंह तो नहीं मोड़ा जा सकता. सुबह जगने से लेकर रात में सोने तक, हमारी दिनचर्या का एक अनिवार्य हिस्सा है जल. जैसे- खाना बनाना, पीना, कपड़े साफ़ करना, हाथ-पैर साफ़ करना आदि-आदि. एक कल्पना करिए कि अगर आपको खाने के बाद पीने को पानी न मिले तो कैसा महसूस होगा. धूल-मिट्टी से सने पैरों को धोने के लिए उचित मात्रा में जल उपलब्ध न हो तो क्या होगा!
ये तो हुई अनिवार्य दिनचर्या की बात. इसके अलावा हमारी एक और आदत है जो यकीनन बुरी है. इस बारे में हम कभी सोचते तक नहीं. वह आदत है पानी की महत्ता को भूलकर पानी का दुरूपयोग. हम हर रोज नहाते समय, ब्रश करते समय, हाथ धोते समय पानी को बेमतलब बहा रहे होते हैं लेकिन हमें इसका तनिक भी भान नहीं होता. बेकार में नल खुला छोड़ देने से होने वाले नुकसान के बारे में हमने शायद ही कभी सोचा होगा! मैं हमेशा अपने आस-पास ऐसी परिस्थिति देखकर विचलित हो जाता हूँ.
बचपन में, जब भी मुझसे कोई गलती होती थी, मेरे पिताजी गुस्से में सवाल करते थे, ‘क्या पढ़ते हो?’ मैं अकेले में सोचता था कि इस गलती में मेरे विषयों का क्या गुनाह है? अब जाकर मेरी समझ में आया है कि उनका मकसद यह जानना होता था कि पढ़ाई से मैंने क्या सीख ली है. पढ़ाई का मतलब केवल विषयों का ज्ञान भर नहीं होता, बल्कि इसका मकसद हमारी सोचने-विचारने की क्षमता का विकास करना होता है. शिक्षा से हम मानवता की ओर आकृष्ट होते हैं.
ईश्वर ने हमें अमूल्य जल दिया है. अपने जीवन के साथ-साथ इस धरती की सलामती इसी में है कि हम जल संरक्षण के लिए अपने प्रयास तेज करें और हर छोटे प्रयास से इस बड़े यज्ञ में अपना योगदान दें.

पानी उतना ही इस्तेमाल करें जितने की जरूरत हो

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.

hero2

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.

hero4

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.

You will not feel sorry to not know a person besides living in the same apartment.

The supreme court has taken a positive note by ordering the ban on the firecrackers. The order came to reduce the side effects of the air pollution. last year, It was a frightening week when the whole Delhi was soaked in the polluted smoke. The positive effort initiated by the honourable supreme court is a suggestion to all of us to care about others.

How A cat helped me get rid of my old phone #CleanUpCashOut

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.

hero1

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.

It is 2017. You do not need to worry about replacing your old gadgets in this era. cashify has come to short out all your worries. Now sell your gadgets on Cashify without thinking twice and get your dreams turn true. So this Diwali #CleanUpCashOut with Cashify.

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. I would take test drive of Datsun Redi-Go for testing its feature of comfort and the quality of turning sadness into smile. I would also test the car for its overall impact.

 

 

 

Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross – Datsun redi-GO – the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback

 

Impacts of clean India campaign

“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.
