Meanwhile in Mumbai, India, Versova Beach is home to a large community of fishermen and this inspired local residents to join efforts in cleaning up the beach.

Record-breaking sailor Ellen MacArthur who has seen more of the world’s oceans than anyone else gave a warning that there will be more plastic in the sea than fish by 2050. It is indeed very alarming that such trash will eventually take over our seas and oceans if we do not do anything about it now.

Afroz Shah, a lawyer in his 30’s and  Harbanash Mathur, a retired businessman in his 80’s has been  collecting litters in Mumbai beaches on their own initiative. Only few volunteers would help with the coastal clean-up back then.

But their tenacity and determination towards their advocacy has eventually paid off.

Despite the passing of Harbanash Mathur,  people eventually have started picking off where he left off as Afroz Shah and Versova Resident Volunteers (VRV), a 200+ member citizen group has  still been doing rounds in cleaning up Mumbai’s infamous dirty beach for over 40 weeks.

610,000 kg of trash has already been collected by VRV over the past weeks which has drawn the attention of United Nations Patron of the Ocean, Lewis Pugh, who flew to Mumbai to take part in the world’s largest beach clean-up in Versova Beach during the weekend.

According to United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), marine litter affects tourism, recreation, tourism and shipping. “Almost all of the trash we’re seeing is single-use plastic. Heartbreaking. The section of beach we are on was already cleared out a few weeks ago, goes to show we need to find solutions upstream.” said Lewis Pugh on the Versova coastal clean-up.

So far in Versova Beach, over 2 million kgs of trash have already been removed by the volunteers.

From 147th in nationwide cleanliness survey in 2014,Mumbai has now stepped up to 10th according to the latest survey. The clean-up efforts were also in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan” or Clean India Mission, a national drive to clean up the country.

This is but a sad reflection of the lack of understanding of the consequence of our actions where our unwise practices have created problems such as reduction in biodiversity and degradation of species and marine habitats. We cannot afford to risk the very ecosystem on which our survival depends.

We must bear in mind that every single rubbish that we throw will definitely have an impact not only in our environment, but in the entire ecosystem. It begins with the individual self-discipline and sense of responsibility along with education and awareness about cleanliness and environmental issues and a better waste management system to prevent the wastes from reaching bodies of water  and help bring positive change for our environment.

And not to undervalue the impact of collective action in such efforts in saving the seas and oceans where the water system plays a significant role in our lives no matter how close or far from the shore we live because oceans are the lifeblood of the entire humanity.

Two faces of Times of India, The Raahgiri Day Duplicity

Two faces of Times of India, The Raahgiri Day Duplicity

It is said that good begets good, ethics begets ethics. On the one hand when Delhi’s Air Pollution is rising high and higher every other day, the other hand is TOI media, whose one face is portraying regular activities on Raahgiri day and such minute sensitivities for the issue for past 1 year and its other face giving ten times ads of Cars every-day and running car-selling episodes for making money.

Cars companies have realized that you have a mindset customer in Delhi who will buy a car to show off and then these companies have this TOI type paid media for creating pollution in Delhi. Who will question these thousands crores revenue making car companies? Of-course not the greedy people. Can Minister? Can Media? It is only conscientiousness that can question.

Well you can be either ethical or duplicate. Have TOI been ethical, they could have chosen to run a Raahgiri Day episode in TIMES NOW that would guide city people to avoid usage and purchase of so many Cars at first place. They won’t focus on how much crowd they gather. Whereas we see TIMES NOW runs an episode to motivate and buy new cars and models. TOI could have chosen to follow the loyal path of Raahgiri day with honesty and an actual concern for health-cause, without missing this aspect, and not for using its newspaper space to winning hollow popular awards. Shame!

Duplicity of passionate professional media is that they think they can play both sides and also that they can question anyone without seeing mirror. But truth is that they are part of same greedy society but wearing fear-less masks of ethics. Just see, where are your those guts now that you are proud of?

Pollution Facts – Even the most posh areas of Delhi are not safe from Air pollution. You are not even safe while you are in home. US Embassy has warned of Delhi Air pollution rise. It is better we all start caring for ourselves before our loved ones get sick. We should also stop buying new cars both out of traffic and out of pollution. Some links are –

Kids playing guitar this Children’s day

Kids playing guitar this Children's dayChildren’s Day is recognized on various days in many places around the world, to honor children globally. In India, Children’s Day is celebrated on 14th November and has been named after the JawaharLal Nehru Birthday also known as Chacha Nehru day.

Guitarmonk Social has brought out a unique way to celebrate children’s day this year by going to various schools, social organizations and singing children’s day song with them on guitar.

Not just the kids but the teachers also participated in this moment by singing along with the kids.  We further took this children’s day musical drive to some underpriviledged kids and we got extremely glad to notice that some of the kids also came out with their innate musical talent surprising and reminding all of us with the statement that nothing can be more precious than the talent of a person.

We thank guitarmonk guitarists who played a prominent role in making this children’t day musical drive succesful.

On Parkinson Syndrome, Old Age, Disability etc – A reflection

On Parkinson Syndrome, Old Age, Disability etc – A reflectionDuring a stop at a restaurant for lunch, I noticed a frail looking old man who asked if he could share a seat with us while we were also waiting for our order. He was shaking uncontrollably and was using a 4-leg walker as he seems to walk inch by inch. Parkinson’s Syndrome has caused some of his muscles to be rigid and  also causing some tremors that affected his speech and gate.  Someone then came to give him his pouch. We were so surprised when the old man opened his bag and handed over a new Rs 50 note to the helper and struggled to zip his opened bag.

The man wanted to order some chicken but he was in great difficulty even saying the word “chicken,” until the waiter decided to tell him what’s on the menu and ask him questions that can be answered by a simple yes/no. As soon as his order, consists of chicken and bread arrived, he was eager to start his meal. But he couldn’t even put his spoon close to his mouth without spilling his food. He obviously was struggling to eat. He was like a 1 year old child with food on his face and food bits scattered on his lap and on the table.

I remained seated and continued to watch him with the corner of my eye so as not to offend him. He was gesturing something and seemed to want some more bread but couldn’t voice it out. He tried a number of times but to no avail as nobody could hear him nor pay attention to him. I decided to call the waiter to bring him another bread. I felt bad for him because he was a big man, with a large frame physique but very helpless.

His presence stirred a lot of questions in my head. Why would a vulnerable, frail old man be moving alone and why isn’t there any family member to assist him at such age? Where and who are his family members? Why is he carrying such bulk of money by himself? And with such condition as his, he can easily be robbed or tricked by some people.

I just assumed that perhaps he left his house alone because he was bored, angry or just want to unwind and go places. Or could it be he no longer have any family member who would like to look after him, or maybe he doesn’t want to be taken cared of and still want to prove that he isn’t a burden to anyone who might be looking after him and try his best to do things on his own.

I had so many assumptions in mind. But, I was really bothered by the fact that he was so fragile, so vulnerable and him being exposed to the elements and to the busy streets and harsh society, he might meet some kind of accident as his senses are also no longer that sharp and alert.

This encounter made me reflect a lot on our daily lives, our associations, our connectedness as a family, as friends, as neighbours, as acquaintances, or as a community. How many old, disabled or disadvantaged people like him are roaming the streets on their own? I couldn’t and I wouldn’t want to even imagine!


I must admit that we were actually taken aback and was confused on how to approach or how we can be of help to him. Even before we logically decided or thought of an idea to be of assistance to him, his pitiable condition have already affected our emotions and we ended up sympathizing instead of showing empathy. We got caught in our own emotions, our own fears, our insecurities and self-made perceptions.

I noted some ideas on how to be of help to persons with disability and here’s what I have finally concluded:

  1. We can call a particular helpline that can send assistance and professional help to such cases (some of them are mentioned below).
  2. We can take his photo and share to the local authorities and inform them that he needs help or assistance so as not to be a target of criminals, thieves, etc. Just to ensure his safety and security.
  3. We can also try to talk to him. But we must be careful not to show pity or say something that may compromise both our security and safety.
  4. We can ask for his next of kin, who may then collect him and look after him.
  5. We can contact an organization or government agency for senior citizens, or for the disabled to help that person and also orient his family about his condition and the proper way of ensuring his health, safety and security.

No senior citizen or person with disability should be experiencing that same fate as the old man we met at the restaurant. We should continue to look after our family members not only while they can provide us with our needs but we should actually show them more respect, love and care in their old age or when they are no longer physically strong or able.

The fact that I simply observed the old man, despite his struggles and hardships while trying to move around and eat his meal. I actually feel guilty and upset at the same time. I was guilty due to the fact I really wanted to help or assist him, and yet I restrained myself to do so. Thinking that I might offend him by offering assistance when in fact he was trying to be independent. And I was also upset because other people who saw him didn’t even bother to ask if he was okay or if he needs help. And most of all, he shouldn’t be on his own afterall!

This experience is indeed an eye opener. What kind of society do we have now? What kind of community do we belong? Have we become selfish or insensitive? So many questions may remain unanswered but I am sharing this to you now, so you can also ponder and do something better next time.

Effort for International Yoga Day on June 21

Yoga is 5000 years old, one of the ancient health gifts to mankind, influencing and transforming physical, mental and spiritual being of a human being.

Yoga is an invaluable gift of our ancient tradition. Yoga embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature”Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Go Green Drive and Green Anthem

Go Green drive and Green Anthem

Guitarmonk Social’s Go Green drive and Green Anthem became a popular movement among lot of Delhites and specially music lovers.

It was a month before the occasion of International Forestry Day, when guitarmonk social thought to create awareness about importance of greenary all around us. It is since then all guitarmonk branches across Delhi-NCR starting motivating all its students to come out together and connect this message to thousands of people in Delhi via Go Green Drive and Green Anthem Songs. They also composed a song on same.

The counseling continued for a month and many Guitarmonk students came forward with their contributions on the day of Forestry Day with Guitars in their hand. They not only invested money on buying thousand of plants but went on at all parts and zones of Delhi-NCR and planted trees at the locations, while singing the green anthem.

It also included free distribution of plants to local residents at every location and bringing them along in singing ‘go green’ songs.

A mini bus was booked that covered many locations in Delhi-NCR as India Gate, V3s Mall, Shopprix Mall, Agarwal Fun city mall, IP Extension, Nirman Vihar, Noida, Rohini, Gurgaon etc. The basic idea was to spread message of pollution free environment and pollution free Delhi through music.  Delhi Police also came and enjoyed the songs during the movement.

Plantation drive was also supported by contributions from Unicorn Books, JustDialMusic, Lovely Public School, Softmax Software Solutions, V3S Mall, and Unity Group Agarwal Fun City Mall.

Musical Tribute on Gandhi Jayanti

Musical Tribute on Gandhi Jayanti

On this occasion, Guitarmonk dedicates the contemplative prayer, and inspirational song, Humko Man Ki Shakti De Na (give us the power to win our minds before we win others.) as a tribute to one of the greatest man to ever lived in India.  Kapil Srivastava and its guitarist team from Delhi, planned to record the beautiful music and devotional song of movie Guddi on Guitar. The whole tune was recorded in less than half hour having lead guitar, arpeggio and just simple chord strumming instead of running rhythm.

This guitar tune can also be used as a wonderful melody for teaching by guitar teachers for their guitar students.
Rearranged on guitar by Kapil Srivastava as an instrumental version (you can listen above) and being made into a video (will be launched soon) to inspire the younger generation with the importance of Mahatma Gandhi’s priceless contribution to our country and the rest of the world.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (Mahatma Gandhi) is India’s symbol of peace, harmony, spiritual discovery and independence. He was the greatest political figure in India’s history and most admired.

Bapu Gandhi championed on social equality and communal harmony. He took it as a personal mission to deliver the message of peace through silent resistance in Indian Freedom Struggle with satyagraha. Despite being sent to jail many times, he endured it all for the sake of his love for the people and the country, India. He loved life and looked at life as the invaluable driving force that can save humanity from atrocities through the use of non-violence protests as catalyst of social change.

Through the sacrifices and selflessness of Gandhiji, we are now enjoying India’s Independence. His ideologies continue to ignite social movements around the world. Indeed, as Gandhi believes, “You must be the change you want to see the world.”

The life and teachings of Mahatma Gandhi is full of inspiring lessons that sets a good example of how simplicity, humility, compassion, truthfulness and love of one’s country can bring hope, peace and love to every nation.

Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation and whose legacy of glorifying peace and non-violence, faith in truth and justice for all mankind  has marked a deep and lasting effect to each and everyone of us, has a special day that is well celebrated and commemorated in India and the rest of the world. October 2, also the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi  has been declared by the United Nations General Assembly as Gandhi Jayanti or International Day of Non-Violence in 2007.

गुदड़ी के लाल – लाल बहादुर शास्त्री

गुदड़ी के लाल - लाल बहादुर शास्त्रीहम सब को जय जवान जय किसान का नारा तो याद ही होगा और साथ साथ ये भी याद होगा कि इस नारे को हमे दिया किसने था? जी, सही याद किया आपने हमारे स्वतंत्र देश के दुसरे प्रधानमंत्री जिन्हें गुदड़ी का लाल भी कहा जाता है श्री लाल बहादुर शास्त्री ने. और आज के दिन यानि 2 अक्टूबर 1904 में उत्तर प्रदेश के मुगलसराय में उनका जन्म हुआ था. यानि हमारे राष्ट्रपिता श्री मोहन दास करमचंद गाँधी यानि महात्मा गाँधी और श्री लाल बहादुर शास्त्री का जन्मदिवस एक ही दिन होता है और इस किसी ने क्या खूब कहा है, “आज का दिन है 2 अक्टूबर, आज का दिन बड़ा महान. आज के दिन दो फुल खिले जिससे महका हिंदुस्तान. जय जवान जय किसान…”

उनका जन्मदिवस गांधी जी के जन्मदिवस के समान होने की तरह व्यक्तित्व और विचारधारा भी गांधी जी के जैसे ही थे. शास्त्री जी गांधी जी के विचारों और जीवनशैली से बेहद प्रेरित थे. शास्त्री जी ने स्वतंत्रता आंदोलन में गांधीवादी विचारधारा का अनुसरण करते हुए देश की सेवा की और आजादी के बाद भी अपनी निष्ठा और सच्चाई में कमी नहीं आने दी.

सादा जीवन और उच्च विचार कहने वाले लाल बहादुर शास्त्री ने यह दुनिया को जता दिया कि अगर इंसान के अंदर आत्मविश्वास हो तो वो कोई भी मंजिल पा सकता है.

शास्त्री जी के पिता का नाम श्री शारदा प्रसाद श्रीवास्तव था, अर्थात वो जाति से श्रीवास्तव थे. लेकिन उन्होने अपने नाम के साथ अपना उपनाम लगाना छोड़ दिया था क्योंकि वह जाति प्रथा के घोर विरोधी थे. उनके नाम के साथ जुड़ा ‘शास्त्री’ काशी विद्यापीठ द्वारा दी गई उपाधि है, उनके प्रथम श्रेणी से पास होने पर.

शास्त्रीजी का समस्त जीवन देश की सेवा में ही बीता. देश के स्वतंत्रता संग्राम और नवभारत के निर्माण में शास्त्रीजी का महत्वपूर्ण योगदान रहा. स्वाधीनता आंदोलन के दौरान वे सात बार जेल गए। अपने जीवन में कुल मिलाकर 9 वर्ष उन्हें कारावास की यातनाएँ सहनी पड़ीं. सन्‌ 1926 में शास्त्रीजी ने लोक सेवा समाज की आजीवन सदस्यता ग्रहण की और इलाहाबाद को अपना कार्य-क्षेत्र चुना. बाद में वे इलाहाबाद नगर पालिका, तदोपरांत इम्प्रुवमेंट ट्रस्ट के भी सदस्य रहे.

सन्‌ 1947 में शास्त्रीजी उत्तरप्रदेश के गृह और परिवहन मंत्री बने. इसी पद पर कार्य करते समय शास्त्रीजी की प्रतिभा पहचान कर 1952 के पहले आम चुनाव में कांग्रेस पार्टी के चुनाव आंदोलन को संगठित करने का भार नेहरूजी ने उन्हें सौंपा. 1952 में ही शास्त्रीजी राज्यसभा के लिए चुने गए. उन्हें परिवहन और रेलमंत्री का कार्यभार सौंपा गया. परन्तु 4 वर्ष पश्चात्‌ 1956 में अडियालूर रेल दुर्घटना के लिए, जिसमें कोई डेढ़ सौ से अधिक लोग मारे गए थे, अपने को नैतिक रूप से उत्तरदायी ठहरा कर उन्होंने रेलमंत्री का पद त्याग दिया. शास्त्रीजी के इस निर्णय का देशभर में स्वागत किया गया.

अपने सद्गुणों व जनप्रिय होने के कारण 1957 के द्वितीय आम चुनाव में वे विजयी हुए और पुनः केंद्रीय मंत्रिमंडल में परिवहन व संचार मंत्री के रूप में सम्मिलित किए गए. सन्‌ 1958 में वे वाणिज्य व उद्योगे मंत्री बनाए गए. पं. गोविंद वल्लभ पंत के निधन के पश्चात्‌ सन्‌ 1961 में वे गृहमंत्री बने, किंतु सन्‌ 1963 में जब कामराज योजना के अंतर्गत पद छोड़कर संस्था का कार्य करने का प्रश्न उपस्थित हुआ तो उन्होंने सबसे आगे बढ़कर बेहिचक पद त्याग दिया.

पंडित जवाहरलाल नेहरू जब अस्वस्थ रहने लगे तो उन्हें शास्त्रीजी की बहुत आवश्यकता महसूस हुई. जनवरी 1964 में वे पुनः सरकार में अविभागीय मंत्री के रूप में सम्मिलित किए गए. तत्पश्चात्‌ पंडित नेहरू के निधन के बाद, चीन के हाथों युद्ध में पराजय की ग्लानि के समय 9 जून 1964 को उन्हें प्रधानमंत्री का पद सौंपा गया. सन्‌ 1965 के भारत-पाक युद्ध में उन्होंने विजयश्री का सेहरा पहना कर देश को ग्लानि और कलंक से मुक्त करा दिया.

उनके प्रधानमंत्रित्व काल में देश में भीषण मंदी का दौर था। देश के कई हिस्सों में भयानक अकाल पड़ा था. जिसपर अमेरिका के प्रतिमाह अन्नदान देने की पेशकश पर तो शास्त्रीजी तिलमिला उठे किंतु संयत वाणी में उन्होंने देश का आह्वान किया- ‘पेट पर रस्सी बाँधो, साग-सब्जी ज्यादा खाओ, सप्ताह में एक शाम उपवास करो. हमें जीना है तो इज्जत से जिएँगे वरना भूखे मर जाएँगे. बेइज्जती की रोटी से इज्जत की मौत अच्छी रहेगी.’ गरीबी में जन्मे, पले और बढ़े शास्त्रीजी को बचपन में ही गरीबी की मार की भयंकरता का बोध हो गया था, फलतः उनकी स्वाभाविक सहानुभूति उन अभावग्रस्त लोगों के साथ रही जिन्हें जीवनयापन के लिए सतत संघर्ष करना पड़ता है. वे सदैव इस हेतु प्रयासरत रहे कि देश में कोई भूखा, नंगा और अशिक्षित न रहे तथा सबको विकास के समान साधन मिलें. शास्त्रीजी का विचार था कि देश की सुरक्षा, आत्मनिर्भरता तथा सुख-समृद्धि केवल सैनिकों व शस्त्रों पर ही आधारित नहीं बल्कि कृषक और श्रमिकों पर भी आधारित है. इसीलिए उन्होंने नारा दिया, ‘जय जवान, जय किसान.’

शास्त्री जी का प्रधानमंत्री कार्यकाल काफी छोटा रहा क्योंकि जिस समय वह प्रधानमंत्री बने उस साल 1965 में पाकिस्तानी हुकूमत ने कश्मीर घाटी को भारत से छीनने की योजना बनाई थी. लेकिन शास्त्री जी ने दूरदर्शिता दिखाते हुए पंजाब के रास्ते लाहौर में सेंध लगा पाकिस्तान को पीछे हटने पर मजबूर कर दिया. इस हरकत से पाकिस्तान की विश्व स्तर पर बहुत निंदा हुई. पाक हुक्मरान ने अपनी इज्जत बचाने के लिए तत्कालीन सोवियत संघ से संपर्क साधा जिसके आमंत्रण पर शास्त्री जी 10 जनवरी 1966 में पाकिस्तान के साथ शांति समझौता करने के लिए ताशकंद गए. इस समझौते के तहत भारत-पाकिस्तान के वे सभी हिस्से लौटाने पर सहमत हो गया जहाँ भारतीय फौज ने विजय के रूप में तिरंगा झंडा गाड़ दिया था. और वो दिन भारत के इतिहास कि चिर-स्मरणीय गया और उसी दिन रात्रि में उन्हें दिल का दौरा पड़ने शास्त्री जी मौत हो गई. हालांकि उनकी मृत्यु को लेकर आज तक कोई आधिकारिक रिपोर्ट सामने नहीं लाई गई है. उनके परिजन समय-समय पर उनकी मौत पर सवाल उठाते रहे हैं. यह देश के लिए एक शर्म का विषय है कि उसके इतने काबिल नेता की मौत का कारण आज तक साफ नहीं हो पाया है. साल 1966 में ही उन्हें भारत का पहला मरणोपरांत भारत रत्न का पुरस्कार भी मिला था जो इस बात को साबित करता है कि शास्त्री जी की सेवा अमूल्य है.

आज राजनीति में जहां हर तरफ भ्रष्टाचार का बोलबाला है वहीं शास्त्री जी एक ऐसे उदाहरण थे जो बेहद सादगी पसंद और ईमानदार व्यक्तित्व के स्वामी थे. अपनी दूरदर्शिता की वजह से उन्होंने पाकिस्तान को गिड़गिडाने पर विवश कर दिया था. हालांकि ताशकंद समझौता भारत की अपेक्षाओं पर खरा नहीं उतरा पर फिर भी उन्होंने दुनिया को भारत की ताकत का अंदाजा दिला दिया था.

आज एक बार फिर से देश को लाल बहादुर शास्त्री जैसे लोगों की जरूरत है, क्योंकि आज देश को महंगाई ने अपने मकड़जाल में घेर रखा है और आम जनता के सामने दो जून की रोटी का प्रश्न है। ऐसे में अगर देश के लोग फिर से अपने लाल को याद करके आगे बढ़े तो निश्चित रूप से देश अपनी समस्या से मुक्ति पा लेगा।

एक अत्यंत गरीब परिवार में जन्मा बालक भी अपने परिश्रम व सद्गुणों द्वारा विश्व इतिहास में कैसे अमर हो सकता है, इसका ज्वलंत उदाहरण थे भारत के द्वितीय प्रधानमंत्री श्री लालबहादुर शास्त्री। शायद इसलिए उनके बारे में कहा गया है कि उठा धरा से पहुँच शिखर, आकाश बन गया, धरा देखती रह गई और पुत्र इतिहास बन गया.

इस भारत के वीर पुत्र कि गिटारमोंक सोशल कि तरफ से कोटि कोटि नमन.
