Plastic Ban in Puri, Odisha

There are many forms of rights of people, and all the time we cannot look to government to do everything. Government of India can work as catalyst for improving life of citizens but we need to look beyond and work out the most possible change that has to be come from within, as take the look and examine of how Clean India movement is going on. People need to be alerted, and need to work out forms of cleanliness all by themselves and then see the government to work out and make the augmented realities that comes upon to the people of India.

It is about education and education does not mean religious education but the real time readings in order to stand with their legs and become similar to others and live through the statement of person and create the trust within societies. It is all about creating and management of trusts and it should come within people that all are Indians and to ensure that the low end petty politics should happen once-again.

Policies needs to be mobilized by people on the ground in order to make it happen and one should see that no place the policies like Clean India and others should be materialised. Let us talk about banning of polythenes in the market. We do see that many shopkeepers at the vegetable market do have polythenes and they used to distribute to the buyer with vegetables and that is spreading such use of polythenes despite banning from central government.

In one shop when I bought tomatoes for 16 rupees a kilo another person was buying and he asked for polythenes and the shopkeeper gave him and that person asked him that why he is using polythene despite receiving polythene from him. Then both have civilized discussion on this issue and then both have conclusion that why the polythene factory is not been facing heavier fines and why they are allowed to produce this and why they are distributing this and the persons who are distributing are fined and penalized but the factory owner is still to date not been fined so far.

It is a good observation as and when such ban happens then it is a good idea to ban such factories who are producing such high level of plastic bags despite severe ban on them. Odisha state is one of the pioneers in this banning process but despite that it needs to ban the source of plastic bag industries and if it comes from outside state then the entire route needs to be comprehensively banned.

Identity Card to be issued to Sevayata of Lord Jagannath Temple of Puri

Puri is famous for high tide sea-beach and world-famous Lord Jagannath Temple. There are many sevayatas inside temple and in modern times due to security reasons police forces from outside has been deployed in order to secure area in and outside Lord Jagannath Temple. Most of them could not recognize sevayatas and some times outside people in the guise of sevayatas intrude into temple and for this issuance of identity cards to sevayata is a welcome step and way forward.

In order to have eligibility for identity card the person must be from sevayata family and these identity cards to be issued on the behalf of nijogs of sevayatas. There are in total 36 nijogs in jagannath temple of puri and probably it is to be issued to male persons and am not sure but along with male sevayats the female sevayata to be allowed inside premises of Puri temple.

Most of times apart from pallia sevayatas there are occasions when other sevayatas who are engaged in other professions and they come to temple during holidays but recognizing them becomes difficult due to most of outside police as well as some of the younger police of temple not able to recognize them and then begins the process of confusions and arguments and in this way issuance of identity cards from nijog itself then proper recognition of persons from nijog itself make the entire process nice and proper.

What it makes most worth program that the responsibility comes up with issuance from nijog as they ultimately recognize people out from them, and this makes the process entirely authentic. It should have been done way before as this is a much needed program as most of times the confusion and argument comes from not recognizing the original sevayatas by police either from state and from temple and this is the much needed process to recognize them and makes the entire process smoother and well established way to create the entire process smother and create the congenital atmosphere during every day and during car festival too.

Promoting and safeguarding odia language

In the past Odia literatures and daily, weekly and monthly magazines had contributed immensely to the development and safeguard of Odia language. With the development of journals there came the real development of Odia essay writings and literature. With it the real Odia tradition was recognised and fully renowned and discussed. With it came the development of Odia life style and now it is still continuing. It was necessary as fro 1836 , there was a conspiracy to wipe out Odia languages fully and it was pretty eminent when Krantichandra Bhattacharya announce in 1870 in one of his writings that Odia is not a language.

It enrages the Odia persons and then the fearless journalist the great Gouri Shankara Ray in Utkal dipika , fifth edition on 09/29.1879 , opposed vehemently to the words of Krantichandra Bhttacharya , if the orginial words of Odia language would be heard by Krantichandra Bhttacharya then he would not have spelled such things. He would have gone the wrong way deliberately or with some purpose, said by the great Gouri Shankara Ray in his article. Odia and the other languages are different and it is eminent form the writings as the Odia writing part is vast different from the Bengali part as the former is influenced by the hindi language writings script but the Odia language is completely separate and its dialect are also vastly unique.

This seems tha Krantichandra Bhttacharya has deliberately offended then the Odia language which was realy not necessary. If he would have live to day he would have realised that how big a mistake he had done by doing this. In 1868 BYaskabi Fakir Mohan Senapati on August fourth of this mentioned year published Sambad Bahika , which is more nationalistic and more oriented towards developing and keeping the Odia language to its fullest scale It had been praised for safeguarding the interests of Odia language and its roles should be remembered till the last of the Odia persons lived in this world.

Then from Deogarh with the patronage of Sir Sumakdev published Sambalpur Hitainsinni , a weekly journal first published on 1889 May 30 and it had done tremendous work to preserve and attain their Odia language to remain free from the clutching eyes of the neighbors then. He stresses on publishing the Odia study materials in schools and colleges. At those time when at the court hindi was the official language, then the Sambalpur Hitainsinni opposes and want it to be Odia. With this the separated land became united and slowly with due course to unite all the Odisha land had been gaining momentum and this has been populated and done in the 1936 first April which united all the Odisha land and the Odia language is now becoming the reality.

The British ruler Andrew Fraser realised this and commented in favour of Odia people. In fact it was only in Odia where the British have supported for the strong safe guard of Odia languages and it was vehemently opposed by then educated Bengali who want to hijack the rich cultural heritages of Odisha by deleting this languages all by itself with very parochial attitudes. The British announced the mother language of anyone should not be denounced such and it should not be removed from the native persons.

Those languages are foreign to the natives should not be laoded with them and these words supported the movement to save Odia language and in the long run it had very pulsating effects in removing the opposition form the neighbours. On 1872 Utkal Darpan published from Balasore, it had reflected many modern thinking and imparted a flurry of modern languages to this very vibrant language of India named as Odia. The modern pillars of Odial language writers such as Radhanath Ray, Fakir Mohan Senapati, Madhusudhan Rao published vibrant and beautiful writings .

It was patronage and supported by King Bainkutha anth. Radhanath and Fakirmohan digged the proud cultural and courageous heritages of Odisha and wrote wonderful articles on these. During those time the oppose to Odia language , some Benagli persons trying to discourage him through various carrot and stick methods but he continues to support this magazine relentelessly to pronounce the greatness of Oida languages. Utkal Sahitya published on 1897 editored by Biswhnath Kar. In 1915 Utkal manni Gopabandhu patronised Satybadi and it stresses on the strength of Odia languages. It suggests refined Odia language to use on day to day basis.

This magazine put the final nail on the coffin of the conspirators from neighbours who tried relentlessly shamelessly to destroy the great Odia language, but now it has been going strength to strength. Samaj published 1919 October fourth and it is live today and generously publishing and pronouncing the life of Odia languages. In 1876 Swadeshi published by William Mohanty to strenghtify Odia languages. For the first time in 1893 the then Mandraz University is now the Madras University introduced the first curriculum in Odia.

In 1890 it was first proposed to make the Odia language as the official language. Other prominent Odia publication were Gyanarunna in 1849 , probodha cahndrika in 1896, Arunnodoya in 1868 , Utkal Madhupa in 1878 , Sikhay bandhu 1886 , Deepak in 1889 , Indradhanu in 1893 , Bijulli 1893 and many many high quality Odia journal weekly , monthly attracted and justifies the great ness of Odia language and their effort in attaining it to the top notch position as we are her today is most desirable and laudable.

The Etiquette of employees of Big Bazaar of Puri is far from satisfaction

Yesterday was auspicious day of Lord Ganesha’s birthday and it was being celebrated in Puri of Odisha with pump and valour. Within some shorter distances you will find Idols of Lord Ganesha with highly tall structures provides one of much satisfied level when I move to see Lord from place to place. I decided to go to one kirana shop nearer to Gundicha Temple and that was a famous whole seller shop and it will also provide the retailer to individual shopper like us.

I bought besana and then corn floor and then coffee sachets which it provides two rupees less. By buying 12 coffee sachets of two rupees each that should have been 24 rupee my es but it costs 22 rupees as during day and night time we do drink coffee as per latest revelations coffee is good for insulin and that is why parents prefer to have coffee instead of tea now. I found after implementation of newer and stricter traffic rules vehicles in and around Puri town has been driving with care and with slow speed and that is why moving in and around Gundicha temple is now easier than earlier occasions.

It was already nearer to two o clock and there are some items to be bought from Big Bazar and I decided to go there during noon time in order to avoid heavy rush of traffic nearer environment of cash counter. First I kept my two wheeler in and around nearer to garage and the security person was expression in not satisfied with his job as he was shouting at bicyclers and it was evident that he was not enjoying his job at all and even in this time of holiday his dissatisfaction is going overboard.

Daddy and mummy at Big Bazar of Puri

Unnecessarily he was showing his aggression towards bikers and those were at the teen and they just keep their mouth shut otherwise there would have been the situation of chaos in and there around that area. He was shouting that it was not his duty to watch bicycles but in reality it was not as he was appointed to safeguard both bike and manual bicycles. So, it is important for authorities to see how these security guards behave towards customers.

Then, I each towards second floor and there I have to bought some groceries out there. At the loose grocery segment, the lady was in constant talk with another her colleague and after asking for three times for three kilogram of sugar she finally responded and gave it to me. I suppose these workers are there to respond to customers within seconds as every seconds of customers are of high values but instead they were talking each other ignoring customer altogether and then when I ask them where is fried vermicelli, they show me that it was there but despite searching for three times I could not find that then when I asked them again then they told that it was finished for time being.

If that was so they they should have told me earlier not after sending me to search for three times in and around that areas. I think management of Big Bazar must look at all of these developments as their paid employees must date themselves each other outside and after working hours not inside their organization and even ignoring customers. That was really shocking to me for fried vermicelli I have to bought it for one kilogram they told me to search it for three times and then at last said that it was finished.

This was one of worst customer satisfaction I had seen and experience even after so many authorities and managers that are inside Big Bazar but still all are not well managed. Then, I reach for cash counter and to my utter surprise in and around four cash counters at the second floor no one is there at any of cash counter and when I asked for to one cash counter specialist was talking with other and he hesitantly came to it as if she was providing some sort of unwanted to provide billing.

In the auspicious occasions my worst experience at Big Bazaar Puri and it provides one of most undeniably worst experience beginning from security of garage and then workers at the loose grocery area second floor and then at the cash counter one of unhesitatingly the most difficult time but thankfully I kept my cool throughout this journey of shopping at Big Bazar at Puri, Odisha.
