Security of Women Under Serious Question


[Prathiba]

Security of Women Under Serious Question

With the incident of Prathiba Srikanth Murthy getting raped and murdered by a brutal beast driver, Sivakumar, it has come to limelight that BPO organizations and the police should wake from their deep slumbers.

The more shocking thing is that the most safer, secure place of Bangalore to stage this melodrama. This is not just a blog post on some girl working in some call center. Perhaps, we need to see this issue from the perspective of Prathiba or her family. At the moment, the only thing, we can is to pray the Lord for giving mental strenght for the family of Prathiba to bear with this brutal beastly attack. The more pitiable thing is that, Prathiba's mother is a widow, having lost her husband about 5 years back. Reports claim that she is not mentally prepared to come down to Bangalore from Mysore to see her daughter's body now.

Letz observe a 2 minute silence towards praying the Lord for Prathiba's soul rest in peace and for giving her family members the mental strenght to bear the atrocity committed on her. I think the accused needs just not a treatment with IPC (Indian Penal Code) but also a public humiliation, so that offenders like him would refrain from committing such things. It is upto the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike, Bangalore Police to work together to ensure this.

I think, Prathiba's incident is not isolated. There were incidents like Sarika Shaw being molested and killed in Ethiraj college, Chennai about a few years back and Nirmala, daughter of a Indian Air Force office being brutally hit by miscreants claiming to be affluent and powerful potical hands.

It is high time that Government take some real initiatives along with the concerned organizations to put an end to the menace. As Gandhi dreamt and mentioned, the real freedom can be considered only when Indian Women are able to walk freely without fear of any sort even in midnight anywhere.

I fervently hope that the reader should take note of this website on National Commission for Women, which is the apex national level organization in India to protect the cause of Women. Since there are also harassment for women at workplaces, Government of India has enacted a bill to make Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention) Act, 2003. Check out the details of this Bill here.

Friends,

We are a group of NRIs from Karnataka living in North America.
Concerned about the recent reports of sexual harassment in the offices of Government of Karnataka we have started a 'Campaign to stop Sexual Harassment of Women in Karnataka State Government offices' Kindly have a look at http://tumkurboy.googlepages.com/ for more information.

We believe small efforts like these will go a long way in improving the rights of some sections of our society, rights that are so easily available to some of us.

Thanks,

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and Restrictions

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and RestrictionsOne of my friend was suggesting me this -- "Why can not you put up some kind of blog post or an article summarizing the 48 day observation rules to be observed. Well. I had a small pocketbook and a couple of PDFs circulating in the emails.Most of the rules normally are hearsay from our elders to us. As my friend suggested, today since I was relatively free, just thought I would update it as bullet points, so that future Ayyappa Swamis  can immensely benefit from the same.While my pocket books are in Tamil, I am attempting to compile the same in English. Should you find discrepancies, share your thoughts and observations as comments.Most of the rules and observationary regulations are purely for our own control and development -- to streamline our day-to-day chores.All round the work time, keep your mind only focused on the Lord. Even the work you do is being instrumented by the Lord. Dedicate the same to the Lord.  Perhaps, Bh…

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

There was one Swami (Karthik) who had expressed a bit of dejection since on a particular day, he could not wake up early and he was feeling a bit down as expressed over here. As far as my little information goes, I think, our guruswami's have taken these issues into consideration and the Arindhum Ariyamalum sloka that we recite accomodates for all these mistakes that are committed with and without our knowledge.

I searched a while to give this sloka lyric to Swami but since I could'nt get it, I have typed it myself in a Word document using a Ayyappa picture and Unicode Tamil and captured as JPG using Irfanview. I would like to share the same with other readers as well.

Om. Arindhum Ariyalum Therindhum Theriyalum
Naangal Seitha Sagala Kutrangalaiyum
Poruthu, Kathu Rakshithu Arul Puriya Vendum
Sathiyamay Ponnu Pathinettam Padi mael Vaazhum
Kasi Rameswaram Adakki Aalum
Om Hari Hara Sudhan, Ananda Siddhan Ayyan, Ayyappa
Swamiyae Saranam Ayyappa.

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) Temple

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) TempleA calm and poised atmosphere near Vellore, the most elegant town of Tamil Nadu in the district of Arakkonam is a village called Nemili. Seated in her own house, Sri Bala Tripura Sundari has been incessantly showering her blessings on Her devotees for several years. I have also heard of Her temple from my relatives but it is a significant truth cum stipulation that unless the Lordess wishes you to see you, it is becoming almost next to impossible to go to this temple. Even to search information on the website, I think, I could not locate it till now and just reached a YahooGroups website NemiliBala. I wanted to share a few info about this temple so that other pilgrims too can get benefitted by praying to the Lordess for Her darshan and blessings.Other temples of Tripura Sundari:ThiruvanmiyurTri SoolamThirukazhunkundramThiruvathiaiSirkazhiHistory of the Temple/Sthala Varalaru:The significance of Bala Tripura Sundari unlike Her other temples enlisted a…
