One more record is going to be broken...........this time mass chess playing


See the photo first,

This photo is taken from my office window. Ground is called "University Ground", which is popular for large, grand scale celebrations. This time one very large scale Government function is going to be organize here called "SWARNIM CHESS MAHOTSAV". Actual event will be held on 24th dec, but preparations are going day and night since last 10 days.

Four years ago Mexico City got into the Guinness Book of Records by staging simultaneous exhibitions for 14,000 chess enthusiasts. On December 24 the city of Ahmedabad in India is set to break the record with 20,000 participants. It promises to be a visual spectacle, with University Grounds turned into a giant chess board with 64 alternating black and white squares. 

I will surely post actual event photos soon. Keep visiting.

Hi Friends,

I had posted some photos of Mahatma Mandir from Backside in earlier posts, this time here are some latest photos from the front.

Today I have visited Gandhinagar and above place and made some observations, which are as below;

  • Road work is still pending, however main road is in good condition which leads to the location. 
  • Actual location has not still ready, still some finishing work is going on (construction)
  • They have demolished some Govt 4 storied building to make new road for Mahatma Mandir. 
  • I had visited the same place in past many time, but now it is totally different scenario. 
  • They have cut lots of trees and replanted it at some distinct location through some latest mechanism truck ( I have seen that truck)
  • They have dimolished some hundred zoggies from backside of the site which I had talked earlier. 
  • There have started some local news for traffic diversion and other arrangements in advance. 
  • Looking at the scale of arrangement and time remaining, they will surely make it, no doubt about it, but they have to do lots of firefighting work. 

I will update finally around first week of January. Till then bye and keep visiting and keep clicking on google ads as earning will help the mentally retired people.

GSI (Gujarat State of India) welcomes US Govt Official even they are guilty while USA denied Modi's entry on baseless allegations.

Today, I am just reading one local Gujarat new, which says that some US govt officials are on trip to Ahmedabad -Gujarat. They are visiting site like Newly developed Kankaria Lake, BRTS, Riverfront and many other things. See the photograph and link to that news. So what force them to visit Gujarat.

 I just recall one unforgettable incident three years back, when USA (America) has shown its foolishness by virtually banning Modi entering into America based on propaganda spread by secular jamat of America. Lets see the what happened before three year, during last three year and reactions from various fractions.

 Now lets have some facts: You can verify it from any source, but have at-least 4-5 source, so that you can have at least nearer information.

  • Modi has not asked for Visa at first, he has not even applied for it. 
  • There was one Gujarati Diaspora function organized, where Modi was Chief Guest. 
  • Muslim Groups in America has their influence over some senators, and to showcase their secular face they were opposing Modi's America Visit.
  • They won in their cause by officially announcing their words thorough American Government. 
  • Meanwhile Modi had visited China, Japan, Iserael as a CM without any protest and he did Vibrant Gujarat successfully after such visits. 

Now Indian reaction during that time: 

Our Indian News Media, which also sails in the same boat of fake Secularism, welcomed America's Decision.
Instead of questioning their base of decision officially, our Indian Govt had done nothing in this regard.
BJP and some other parties had raised this question in parliament also, but no one care during that time
Our most neutral, unbiased and lobby-less media had taken stand that US did the right thing by not allowing him. Just see here how they reacted, see the number of comments (2066 comments, I thing highest ever)

Then What did Narendra Modi at that time:

Fortunately I was the witness of Live video-conference done by Modi in reply to US no entry. He had given his speech as per scheduled through Video-conference and I was there at 4.30AM when Modi was addressing the audience at US. He did that VC through worlds largest IP based network owned by Gujarat Government called GSWAN. You can read about GSWAN in detail here.

He had said during his speech that " I will make Gujarat progressed that much so that, one day US citizens will stand in the queue for entry in the Gujarat ". Today we can see that clearly just within 5 years. 

I still have doubt about these US govt official visiting Gujarat, but they are here is a fact.  I know media will not highlight this as usual.I simply cant understand that how can they blame Modi for common reaction caused by 58 death, that also controlled within 2 days and total death toll was under 1000. While US itself did Afghanistan was causing more than 50K death after 9/11 incident. How can we forget Iraq war causing more than 1L not it a simple logic.

See here how Gujarat has progressed during last few years

Updates-2 Vanche Gujarat, Khel MahaKumbh, Sanskrut Nationa Mahakumbh, Recent International Bird watching at Khijadia, coming Riverfront Marathon, Gunotsav 2009 and 2010 and many more………………


I had talked about many things in last post. In this post I will try to give you some more updates, insights and progress report. Don’t forget to express your views after reading and clicking on Goog ads so that we can earn bread for the mentally retired people as mentioned in A request portion.

In this post I have covered two new things like Sanskrit Swarnim MahaKumbhat Somnath and International Bird Watching event held at Khijadiya near Jamnagar last week.

Now, lets take each one step by step;

Sanskrit MahaKumbh: This one is new for me. Modi had vision to have at least 2 lakh Gujarati student with very good proficieny in Sanskrit Language. Last 3rd December, he has done that with this event at Somnath Location. There is one Sanskrit University and college there, where many senior person(some were above 100, Sanskrit visharad) got facilitated by CM. See this invitation card.

International Bird Watching event at Khijadiya: 

More then 700 visitors had participated in the conference, around 100 visitors around the world and around 450 national bird watching enthusiast from across the India had been into Jamnagar during 25 to 30Nov.
Two new bird watching towers are now ready for the bird watchers, Khijadiya - a 600 Acre wetland near the salty plains serves around 250 species of migratory birds, this wetland has specialty of salt and fresh water reservoirs. Gujarat Tourism Department has organized this conference to attract visitors across the globe.

You can have more details at this location also:

Gunotsav:     This is not the new initiative. It has been going on since last 2-3 year. Main point is that they have made it more and more effective with detailed planning and methodology. This year though actual three day program will be starting from 9th onwards, Modiji has interacted with all the officers who are going for the same through videoconferencing. Some excerpts of whole program and intentions and achievement.
See how prepared they are. A special site with reporting interface on daily base. 

You can hear modi speech about Gunotsav here

his surprise visit

“Chief Minister said that government administration spend most of its time in handling files and in meetings, but go out and in people to know their culture, also give motivation. Results, Gujarat has achieved in last decade, is an example of the miraculous success that can be achieved with the pre-planning and total commitment to pro-people programs, he said.

First program of Gunotsav in the field of education has filled the gap of past 30 years. Contribution of each government employee is crucial as their work, if done in completeness can bring turnaround results, he said.

Chief Minister pointed out that drop-out ratio in primary school has been reduced to two percent only with the campaigns like 'kanya kelavani'. This, he said, is something that government mechanism can take proud of.

Initiatives like Gunotsav will take government administration to villages and will link 'government files' with 'human life', Chief Minister said.

Shri Hasmukh Adhiya, Principal Secretary, Education Department, said that around 3000 officials of class-1 and class-2 cadre are participating in 'Gunotsav' program during December 9 to 11. It is the program in the right line as it has brought good results. Out of 32,000 primary schools in Gujarat, 9,000 have got grading rating, he said.

Secretary to Primary Education Shri R.P.Gupta said that Gunotsav has acted like catalyst and brought both quantitative and qualitative changes in primary education. Gunotsav held during previous year traced poor results among 25-lakh students in primary schools. Rectification programs, then, were carried out which had changed the performance of around 85% of students, he said.

Smt.Vijyalakshmi Joshi, Principal Secretary to Health Department, gave details of 'School Health Checkup' program and said that it will cover more than 1.5-crore children in the state and around 3,03,888 health officials will give their services.”

Actually above one is official version, but I have so many friends working as teachers, said that this is effective program and results has been already started. You can read some of them here, here in this link one of the primary teacher is using blog

Khel Mahakumbg: Earlier there were some confusion about this program and its format. But now much has been published about it daily news papers. It is initially district level completion and running well in each district, more than 2 L participants in each district across various events and age groups.

One thing I would like to show that, during any event, any topic, say it photography, sankrit, Art, Teachers, Books…………………………..during every Government Function, Modi has facilitated some 30-40 person in group, which includes very senior person in that field(above 80s), some middle age person (50-80) and young blood also. This thing is totally unusual, because such senior person has been never appreciated by Government in past in such large scale and appropriate time.

I will update more about Ahmedabad coming events like Kankaria carnival, riverfront marathon etc in coming posts. Also I will update about GIFT project and Vibrant Gujarat 2011.

Today I have visited again Mahatma mandir location, which is the venue for next Vibrant Gujarat event 2011. I have posted updates about it this post which for this purpose only.
