The rise of the Islamic State will inspire other jihadist groups to claim their own caliphates and emirates. In the long run, the extremism of these contrived dominions and the competition among them will undermine the jihadist movement. However, before that happens, the world will witness much upheaval. http://www.security-risks.com/security-issuessouth-asia/terrorism/as-caliphates-compete-radical-islam-will-eventually-weaken-3461.html

Please see the video enclosed, you can see the delight in scientists and others involved in the mission which also besides the success of mission, is a happy thing to see. Please note that India accomplished this with a cost of $70 million v/s $700 million in western countries.

Surprisingly even the Chinese have accepted Indian success calling it a victory of mankind at large

Best wishes, Congratulations for all people involved in India’s space research organization.

VHP steps up campaign against ‘love jihad’: Ahead of the festive season, the VHP has intensified its campaign against ‘love jihad’ in Gujarat, circulating two audio tapes in Vadodara and writing to the police chief of Narmada district asking him to prohibit Muslims from entering the garba grounds during the Navratri celebrations. In a related move in Narmada district, the VHP has written a letter to the SP, seeking support in “ensuring that Hindu girls celebrating Navratri do not fall prey to love jihad”. It has asked the police to prohibit Muslims “from entering the garba grounds or watching the celebrations in the periphery”. The VHP letter demanded installation of additional CCTV cameras and “increased patrolling by the Anti-Romeo squad of the Narmada police to especially check hotels” and take action on those trying to “spread love jihad”.

अपने िपतरों को ौद्धापूवकर् तपणर् और ौाद्ध देने का पवर् और समय काल “िपतृ पक्ष” कहलाता है। यह अिश्वन माह में िकया जाता है। इस वषर् िपतृ पक्ष 08 िसतबं र से 24 िसतंबर 2014 तक रहेगा। िपतृ यािन हमारे मतृ पूवजर् ों का तपणर् करवाना िहन्द ू धमर् की एक बहुत ूाचीन ूथा व पवर् है। िहन्द ू धमर् में ौाद्ध पक्ष के सोलह िदन िनधािर् रत िकए गए हैं तािक आप अपने पूवजर् ों को याद करें और उनका तपणर् करवा कर उन्हे शांित और तिृ प्त ूदान करें, िजससे आपको उनका आशीर्वाद और सहयोग िमले। िजस माता, िपता, दादा, दादी, ूिपतामह, मातामही एवं अन्य बजुुगोर्ं के लाड, प्यार, ौम से कमाएं धन एवं इज्जत के सहारे आप सखुपूवकर् रहते हैं, तो आज जब उनका शरीर पांच तत्व में िवलीन हो गया है तो आपका यह परम कतव्र् य बनता है िक अपने िपतरों के िलए कम से कम और कु छ नहीं कर सकते तो तपणर् तो कर दें।

भावाथर् : ौाद्ध से ौष्ठे संतान, आयु, आरोग्य, अतुल ऐश्वयर् और इिच्छत वःतुओं की ूािप्त होती है।

िपतरों के िलए ौद्धा से िकए गए मुिक्त कमर् को ौाद्ध कहते हैं तथा तप्तृ करने की िबया और देवताओं, ऋिषयों या िपतरों को तंडुल या ितल िमिौत जल अिपतर् करने की िबया को तपणर् कहते हैं। तपणर् करना ही िपंडदान करना है। ौाद्ध पक्ष का माहात्म्य उत्तर व उत्तर-पूवर् भारत में ज्यादा है। तिमलनाडु में आिद अमावसाई, के रल में किरकडा वावुबली और महाराष्टर् में इसे िपतृ पधं रवडा नाम से जानते हैं।
