Spiritual leader and founder of the Art of Living Foundation Sri Sri Ravi Shankar on Tuesday said his organisation would explore ways to rejuvenate the Ganga if the central government plans to involve NGOs in the effort.He said while rejuvenation of the Ganga was an important and sentimental issue for the country there were hundreds of other water bodies crying for revival “Rejuvenation of the holy Ganges is already a national mission with a dedicated attention of the central government If the government comes out with a plan to involve NGOs we will explore ways in which we can contribute (to it)” the founder of the Art of Living (AOL) Foundation told PTI He said this when asked if the AOL was keen on taking up the task and whether he had written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in this regard Ravi Shankar said the foundation has taken up rejuvenation of 33 rivers and tributaries besides revival of thousands of smaller water bodies across the country “We will continue to motivate communities to take up such impactful projects in association with us” he said The spiritual leader said rejuvenation of rivers would resolve inter-state water disputes “The dispute between states is due to shortage of water supply Increasing surface and sub-surface water in Cauvery catchment areas will benefit farmers of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu” he said The Art of Living Foundation is trying to increase water availability in the Kumudavathi basin with the hope that T G Halli reservoir would get more water thereby relieving the pressure on the Cauvery river to augment the water needs of Bengaluru Ravi Shankar said It was heartening to note the Kumudavathi river is flowing again after more than a decade he said and claimed that the recharge structures set up by the AOL in the river basin were helping in enriching groundwater levels and sustain the flow “Our teams are working in the Cauvery river basin in both Karnataka (Coorg Mysore and Chamarajanagar) and Tamil Nadu (Coimbatore) to improve water availability” he said Asked how the AOL raises funds Ravi Shankar said the organisation has an administrative body in each state which does the task with the help of local communities A few corporates have also funded some projects of the AOL he said “With the involvement of local authorities community participation and hard work of our volunteers we successfully completed some projects at a fraction of the officially estimated cost” the spiritual leader said About the inspiration behind taking up such projects Ravi Shankar said it comes from volunteers’ commitment to serve the people in need “Most of these projects arise from a desire to do good for the society rather than strategic planning” he said The Art of Living foundation has planted 71 million trees globally Ravi Shankar said adding the organisation has undertaken a massive tree plantation drive together with the United Nation’s ‘Mission Green Earth’ in 2008 For all the latest India

the country of foreign rule Top News Both Panchjanya and Organiser have an article each on Tipu Sultan The Panchjanya article begins with claim that Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s move to “glorify” a barbaric ruler like Tipu Sultan only shows the Congress party’s malice towards Hindus The article lauds Anant Kumar Hegde a Kannadiga legislator for distancing himself from an event hosted by the state government on Tipu Sultan The writer lists out several alleged orders by Tipu Sultan to forcefully convert tens of thousands of Hindus to Islam The author claims that the country’s “Marxist” historians under the garb of “secularism” have projected Tipu as a brave and a patriotic man “But the truth is Tipu never had (a) relationship with this nation with this soil which was his home He was just a Muslim ruler of a Hindu land” The writer claims that Tipu fought the British to protect his crown and not to rid the country of foreign rule The article narrates the conditions Hindus had lived in under Muslims rulers across the country before the British came Hindus could not sport a tilak or wear the sacred thread they could not sing kirtans openly or build and repair temples their universities were destroyed Hindu women were publicly raped and “Hindus being sold into slavery was a common event” according to the article It was only after Muslim kings lost to the British the article claims that Hindus were able to celebrate Durga Pooja in Kolkata The article argues that rulers like the Lodhis Khiljis Tughlaqs Sayyids and Mughals should be called “attacking infiltrators barbaric killers and abhorrent fundamentalists which they really were” and not rulers The editorial in Organiser talks about “past personalities” like Tipu Eminent historians have “wasted their entire life” to prove that Akbar and Aurangzeb were “great” kings like Maharana Pratap and Chhatrapati Shivaji the editorial says “It is beyond doubt that celebrating ‘Tipu’ as a great warrior is another ploy of the Congress government to appease fundamentalist sections of Muslims who consider themselves the rightful heirs of the Mughal sultanate and their agents like Tipu” Historical figures can’t solely be judged on the basis of their religion the editorial says Many religions it says have “blossomed” in Bharat and someone cannot be “demonised” for being a Muslim just as someone is not a “great” king for being Hindu Some of the qualities of a great ruler include “impeccable character” and respecting all religions Tipu it says fails on these parameters because in his fight against the British he invited various armies including the French and Afghan but to “save his kingdom and not to save Bharat as nation” The article talks about his alleged mass conversion of Hindus and asks if “such a tyrant be considered a noble king” China and Communism The cover story of Organiser is on the Communist Party of China and Xi Jinping’s re-election as the supreme leader of the country It argues that “Leninism to Jinpingism all forms of the evolutionary ideology actually thrived on State monopoly and hyper-nationalism” and defeated the idea of “Global Communism” An article in Organiser says that “nothing could be far from truth” than calling Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx “philosophers” It claims “the hidden agenda” of the founders of communism was to “capture and consolidate power and wealth at any cost and to foist hand-picked dictators over the entire world to benefit the already powerful clique behind the scenes which included international bankers their friends and lackeys” This facade the writer claims was in contrast to the society established on “dharmic values by self-less rishis in Bharat which has sustained the nation for thousands of years” The article lists “lack of sound theoretical basis” “false doctrine” and lack of values and violence among the reasons for the fall of Soviet Communism Panchjanya has carried an article that says the CPC erected an invisible wall between the common man and the VIPs The article says the “pitiful” conditions of the poor were prevented from being exposed to the international community while the luxuries of the important people were exaggerated Though the average Chinese is much better of today than she was under Mao Zedong political restrictions continue in China The article says Buddhist sites in China were destroyed earlier but now the country is trying to claim that it was the prime defender of Buddhist values Defending GST An Organiser article defends GST and says the Congress which has been consulted throughout the process to implement GST can’t take credit for passing it in the Rajya Sabha and then criticise calling it the “Gabbar Singh Tax” as Rahul Gandhi termed it at a rally in Gujarat recently GST law it says “is still evolving and the government is taking adequate steps to address the concerns raised by the industry” Three months is too short a period to judge such a “massive” reform On the criticism “it may be highlighted that all the decisions relating to GST be it the constitutional amendment or drafting of law/rules were taken unanimously and the

went on to add that current batsmen in Sri Lankan team have continuously struggled against quality spin bowling and time has come to rectify those gaps in the game “This group in last two years has not batted well against spin I have observed that and lot of work for us to do in the future” he said Indian spinners managed to clean the visitors’ middle-order on the first day and ended Sri Lanka’s innings at 205 While Ashwin took 4 wickets his left-arm counterpart took 3 wickets Speaking on the batting performance by Sri Lankan batsmen Samaraweera said “As I have said in the last two years we

as soon as possible “I need about four to five months to identify things After this India series we have two or three weeks before we play Bangladesh Then we have Independence Cup (T20 tri-nation) and

Democratic vice presidential nominee Senator Tim Kaine has alleged that Republican White House aspirant Donald Trump’s investments in India could have an impact on US’ efforts towards a stable India-Pakistan relationship if he wins the November general elections “He (Trump) has got deals in the Pakistan part of the world where the deal working out puts a lot of money into his pocket but it could affect his view of what we should do to try to promote stability in that part of the world and stable relations between India and Pakistan” Kaine said at an election rally on Thursday “Similarly it has come out that he and his organisation owe money to the Bank of China He says he is going to hold China accountable but China basically has him in hock to them And so there is a real question of how he could hold them accountable” he said as he slammed Trump for his “half-baked” policies and foreign entitlements His allegations came a day after ‘Newsweek’ ran a story about the 70-year-old real estate mogul’s business dealings “Donald Trump has -– through his family companies– business deals all across the world including with countries that are very adverse to the United States or individuals in those countries some even with criminal backgrounds and criminal records And the information hasn’t been disclosed” Kaine claimed The Senator from Virginia alleged that Trump has a lot of business deals in Russia some with sort of the government or individuals connected with the government and in Ukraine with pro-Russian elements “And these are deals that are putting a lot of money

few years had come to the village to take part in a feast organized by Rekhabai and her husband Badri after he was cured of a chronic illness The local family had reportedly planned a sacrifice of a goat on the occasion A few more local members had reportedly started practicing Christianity after being treated of their illnesses There was more than one version of the complaint by Kamlabai a woman who alleged that she was promised money for changing her faith One version said she was opposed to the animal sacrifice The Christian couple was allowed to go home late on Wednesday but had been given a notice Khargone SP Amit Singh told The Indian Express that the couple has been booked under the anti-conversion act but not arrested immediately because the offence was punishable with less than seven-year jail term He said the couple’s claim that it was there for Christmas celebration was questionable because the village does not have a Church or any other Christian institute The couple however claimed that they had come to the village only to attend the feast and made no attempt to convert anyone The in-charge of Goganva Police Station where the offence was registered said the
