Son of Soil.

Great actor from UK.


Regarding Nirmal Pandey ...

He is from Nainital ..A product of NSD (national school of Drama).
A male actor who holds a unique record for winning a best 'actress' award for his portrayal of a transvestite in Daayraa (1996). He shared the Best Actress award with the female lead of the film Sonali Kulkarni at the Valenciennes Film Festival (France, 1997).

Something which he said on one of his Interview "But I am not a hero at all, was never one. I am a pahadi, I was born in Nainital. So my looks are genetic. But it’s a good thing I look different, as people admire my looks and find them appealing. For me my pahad is my teacher..."

He got married in 1997 with his Islamic , writer wife Kausar Munir . Its great in a very conservative pahadee society ...

He is so in love with kumaun that he even sang a kumauni 'hori' at an international TV channel. . In almost all of his interviews ...he constantly praises 'pahad'.
he even sang a part of 'Ram leela' (a dialogue between Ravana and Meghnad) saying that the Ramleela of nainital in old times was the best he's ever watched in his life.(sony ,movers and shakers) That's simply great ....a program(movers and shakers) where people brag (sorry) about their achievements this man talks of his roots.

To be honest i'm not a big admirer of his singing(he's created an album named 'jalwa')....
but...the way this man talks of his culture in front of the world ...is highly appreciable

जरूर-जरूर तारीफ़क काबिल बात छु.  कुछ लोग आफ़ुनि पहाड्कि पहचान छुपूनक कोशिस करनी और कुछ लोग भौतै गर्व क साथ बतूनी कि मैं पहाडी  छूं ।  मेरि तरफ़ बटि भौत-२ शुभकामना छ्न निर्मल पांडे ज्यू कै।

Sundarlal Bahuguna



Sundarlal Bahuguna is a noted activist and philosopher in the tradition of Mahatma Gandhi and an environmentalist who has fought for the preservation of forests in the Himalayas as a member of the Chipko movement. This movement is famous for Appiko in Karnataka it means hug. One of his notable contributions to that cause, and environmentalism in general, was his creation of the Chipko slogan "ecology is permanent economy". He helped bring the movement to prominence through a 5,000 kilometer trans-Himalaya march conducted from 1981 to 1983, and Met with the then Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. That meeting is credited with resulting in Ms. Gandhi's subsequent green-felling ban.

Sundarlal Bahuguna has been a passionate defender of the Himalaya peoples, working for temperance, the plight of the hill peoples (especially the working women), opposing the Tehri dam project for years, although construction and flooding are nearly completed. He has also struggled to defend India's rivers.

Source wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sundarlal_Bahuguna)



some words from s. l. bahuguna

Whatever I have received is through the blessings of my sisters. I took this risk in order to lay the (dam review) report at Bapuji's feet. I have had 56 years of public life. It was Vimla, my wife, who pulled me out of politics in 1956 when we were married. We settled down in a small village, to fulfill the last wish of Gandhiji that every freedom fighter should settle down in a village.

We would have remained unknown but for Vinobha Bhave's challenge in 1960. He called me to Wardha during his padyatra and said in a challenging voice "You are resting in your village. There is danger to India from China. Take the message of Mahatma Gandhi's gram swarajya (village republic) to the remote villages on the Himalayan border. Jaya Prakash Narayan repeated the same thing.

Since then I have been working as the sentry of the nation in the Himalayas. I have felt more than aggression, there were other types of dangers to the country from the north. China had become strong by giving up opium. Could India meet the Chinese challenge by letting its own borders be flodded with liquor?

The lives of the hill women were very miserable due to the liquor menace in the Himalayas. So we launched the anti-liquor movement. The women came to the forefront. And in seven years, we succeeded. Then there was the danger of floods from the Himalayas, which was due to deforestation. We launched the Chipko Movement, from Kashmir to Kohima, including Bhutan and Nepal, a 4,870 km stretch. In all, I walked about 20,000 km in the Himalayas.

My heart is full of grief. When I was a small boy of 5-6 years, though born in a well-to-do family, still life in the hills is such that my mother worked from 4 am to 10 pm and even later. Whenever she was too tired under the load of firewood or fodder grass, she would say "Oh God! Give me death." I could not forget those words. The hill women still ask for death from the gods. Their life is very miserable. Sometimes, in order to end their misery, they plunge into the river. My last wish is to end this misery so that no woman is forced to repeat the words of my mother. This is why I am still struggling.

The Tehri Dam is not the main issue. The main issue is the Himalayan policy because I see the Tehri Dam as the symbol of the destructive development which will kill both the Himalayas and the Ganga and uproot the hill people from their homes. The last blow to me was when they said that water cannot be given to the hill villages on the upper stream of the dam.

A drinking water scheme, sanctioned for 50 villages around Pratapnagar, was rejected because there would be scarcity of water for the Tehri Dam. They want to increase the per capita water supply to Delhi from 246 litres to 350 litres per day. You know the per capita game. How much do five-star hotels get? How much do ministers' bungalows get? Five-stars hotels use up 1000 kilolitres a day. And ministers bungalows, 550 daily, The jhuggiwalas may not get even 5 litres.

On the periphery of the Tehri Dam, there is a village, Meundha. 250 families scattered in an area of 40 sq km on account of water scarcity. And the women have to wait the whole night and the per capita water is 4 litres. Who will give justice to these people? I am going to tell the prime minister and other leaders that if the Himalayas die, this country is nowhere.

And I know there are three threats to this country from the Himalayas. The first is to the ecology of this country and the whole subcontinent. The second is economic. The Ganga is going to dry up in a hundred years. The third is security. No armed forces can defend a country. Now, the defence strategy has completely changed, especially in the Himalayas. China has settled soldiers with families on the Tibetan border. They are farmers.

What I'm worried about is that in the 19th century, Uttarakhand was very prosperous. We used to export 30 things, mostly forest products. We had very rich natural forests. We exported musk, honey, ghee, wool, herbs, cattle and even food grains to Tibet. We imported only three things from the plains - jaggery, cotton cloth and salt. Some salt we used to import from Tibet. The British started commercial exploitation and management of the forests.

The mixed forests disappeared, which were the factories of fertile soil and mothers of the rivers. So, soil and water both disappeared. Then there was no alternative before the people other than digging up the higher slopes for cultivation. That means the top soil eroded. There is a Garhwali song which says, 'The flesh and blood of the mountains have been eroded.' There is no place to stay and survive, which is why so many people come down to the plains. Those who can afford it, have brought their family down. It means they have been uprooted from their soil. It happened in the 20th century.

I have been a student of history. This is my conclusion of the study of history. Now, there is acute water scarcity. 45% natural springs have dried up. Everybody in the Himalayas in thirsty. Oh heaven! Give us a drop of water. There is no water. And the river water has been denied to us. In the 21st century, the villages of Uttarkhand will be deserted. So, who will defend the country?

The Himalayas produce brave soldiers. The first recipient of the Victoria Cross in the British army was Dewan Singh Negi. Pandit Nain Singh was the first geographer from Kumaon, who walked by over the length and breadth of Tibet during British rule. Chandra Singh Garhwali was the brave soldier who ordered not to open fire on Pakhtoon satyagrahis on the North West Frontier.

Sridev Suman, my guru, who initiated me into political life at the age of 13, was the first satyagrahi, non-violent nationalist, who died after 84 days of fast against the tyranny of the rulers and for the civil liberties of the people. There is Bachendri Pal, the first woman to climb the Himalayas, and so many others.

The Himalayas have a special attraction. This is why people go there for inspiration. All the great teachers of this country went to the Himalayas to get inspiration. Vivekanand, Ram Tirth, Mahatma Gandhi, Gurudev (Rabindranath Tagore), so many.

The glory of the Himalayas is fading. The Himalayas are dying. I have decided on the declaration of the Save Himalaya Movement as my last will and I want to present it to the leader of the nation. We don't want the Ganga to become the Colorado, which disappeared in the desert of Arizona. We don't want the Ganga to become the Honhho, which once disappeared 620 km before the sea. We don't want our sea to become the Aral sea, which dried up because all the rivers had been damned and the water had been used commercially.

The Raja of Kasim Bazaar told the British when they were going to divert the Ganga that he wanted the Ganga and Bhagirath brought to Bengal. Imagine, if all the northern rivers are damned up and the Ganga stops going to Ganga Sagar, the sea will intrude. There will be salt water and the whole of Sagar Island, the Sunderbans and the delta will disappear. Our slogan is, 'Let the Ganga flow forever. Let the Ganga remain clean'.

I told Deve Gowda that a new era has begun with his giving recognition to Gandhian ahimsa (non-violence) and satyagraha. I felt ashamed when in the West people said that you are our last hope, Gandhi is our last hope. But I told them, don't expect much from us. Because, in India, we regard what comes from the West as best. And, we are under the spell of this deceptive development.

Now, Gandhi will come from the West because your youth, your thinkers like Edward Goldsmith and Ivan Illich are saying over and over again that the only way to survive is the way shown by Gandhi. So, Deve Gowda, by recognising satyagraha, has at least made India able to say that there is a way to survive, to the world, sitting on a heap of an over 50,000-strong nuclear arsenal

जल, जंगल, जमीन बचाने को सामूहिक प्रयास की जरूरत : बहुगुणा

प्रसिद्ध पर्यावरणविद् सुन्दर लाल बहुगुणा ने कहा कि जल, जंगल एवं जमीन को बचाने के लिए आम जनमानस को सामूहिक प्रयास करने की आवश्यकता है, इसके लिए उन्हें आगे आना होगा। इस दौरान उन्होंने पर्वतीय क्षेत्रों के कारीगरों को वैज्ञानिक तकनीकों से जोड़े जाने पर बल दिया। आज यहां दून स्कूल के सभागार में हैस्को के तत्वाधान में पर्वतीय कारीगरों को सशक्त करने के उद्देश्य से आयोजित दो दिवसीय कार्यशाला के समापन के अवसर पर मुख्य अतिथि श्री बहुगुणा ने कहा कि आज के परिवेश में कारीगरों को विज्ञान का अधिक से अधिक उपयोग अपने घर व पहाड़ों में करने की जरूरत है, जिससे उनका अधिक ज्ञान अर्जन हो सके। उन्होंने कहा कि अगर पहाड़ को सुरक्षित करना है तो इसके लिए हमें जल व जंगल को बचाना होगा और यह तभी बचेगें जब एकजुटता से आगे आकर सामूहिक प्रयास किया जा सके। उन्होंने कहा कि पर्वतीय क्षेत्र के कारीगरों को आधुनिक तकनीक का प्रशिक्षण मिले ऐसी व्यवस्था किये जाने की आवश्यकता है, इसके लिए वैज्ञानिकों को भी सचेत होना होगा। उन्होंने कहा कि आज के परिवेश में कारीगरों में वैज्ञानिक सोच पैदा की जानी चाहिए जिससे कारीगर इस विज्ञान का लाभ पहाड़ हित करते हुए आगे बढ़ सकें। उन्होंने कहा कि पर्वतीय क्षेत्रों में विभिन्न तरीकों से रोजगार कैसे प्राप्त हो सकता है ऐसा दिखाने का प्रयास हैस्को कर रहा है यह सराहनीय है, अन्य स्वयं सेवी संस्थाओं को भी इस दिशा में कार्य करने के लिए आगे आना होगा। इस अवसर पर कुलपति डा. वी. के. तिवारी ने कहा कि गांवों में ज्यादा से ज्यादा तकनीकी इनपुट देकर अधिक से अधिक आउटपुट देने की जरूरत है। उन्होंने कहा कि कारीगरों को कच्चा माल व डिजाइन मुहैया कराने से उनकी गुणवत्ता में सुधार आएगा साथ ही नए-नए उत्पाद बाजार में आयेंगे। उन्होंने कहा कि कारीगरों को यह भी तय करना होगा की उनकी समस्याओं का निदान किस प्रकार से हो, इसके लिए उन्हें स्वयं ही जागरूक होकर आगे आना होगा। इस मौके पर डी.एस.टी दिल्ली के वरिष्ठ वैज्ञानिक सुनील अग्रवाल ने कहा कि लाइव बेवसाइट जल्द शुरू होने वाली है इस वेबसाइट से कारीगरों को लाभ मिलेगा साथ ही गुणवत्ता सुधार कार्यक्रम समय-समय पर चला कर कारीगरों को प्रशिक्षण देना चाहिए। इस अवसर पर हैस्को के संस्थापक डा. अनिल प्रकाश जोशी ने कहा कि कार्यशाला का उद्देश्य पर्वतीय क्षेत्र के कारीगरों की समस्या से रू-ब-रू होने के साथ-साथ उन्हें वैज्ञानिक तकनीकों से परिचित कराना था। उन्होंने कहा कि संस्था कारीगरों को देश की मुख्यधारा में जोड़ने के लिए प्रयत्नशील रहेगी। इससे पूर्व मुख्य अतिथि पर्यावरणविद् श्री बहुगुणा ने ‘माउन्टेन टैक्नोलाजी एजेण्डा’ नामक पुस्तक का विमोचन किया। कार्यशाला में राज्य के पर्वतीय क्षेत्रों के आए मूर्तिकार, बढ़ाई, मिस्त्री, कास्तकार, राजमिस्त्री, रूड़िया, दर्जी, लोहार आदि उपस्थित थे।
