Music that heals

first_imgAlok Kumar Verma, IPS, Director General (Tihar Jail), New Delhi has taken a new initiative for the prison inmates to augment their rehabilitation process by introducing Morning Ragas in collaboration with Legends of India. Beginning on April 27, Morning Ragas was introduced with great enthusiasm and fanfare. Internationally acclaimed flautist Pandit Ronu Majumdar performed on the inaugural occasion in the presence of almost 2000 inmates. Pt. Ronu Majumdar, Grammy nominee and a Guinness Book of World Record holder began his recital with Ahir Bhairav, followed by a Pahari dhun and two popular compositions Gadhiji’s Vaishnavi Jan.. and Tagore’s Ekla Chalo. He was accompanied by Kalpesh Sachala on the flute and Ustad Akram Khan on the table. The subtle nuances of the flute, a rhythmic jugalbandi between the flute and the tabla mesmerised the prison inmates to the extent that they not only joined the chorus but some of the inmates later expressed their desire to learn music in prison. Coaching classes in the prison will be soon introduced at the earliest. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’This musical concert has added a new chapter in the history of Delhi Prison. The event will be held every month. The purpose of conducting the Morning Ragas with sessions of sublime music is to release the inmates from the tyranny of conscious thought. Music is one of the best solutions to such problems. It heals and raises you. Music directly deals with the root causes of crime, violence, and addiction and offers a practical approach to emotional growth. “Our efforts shall help inmates guide themselves bringing in positivity into their lives and to rejuvenate them” said Alok Kumar Verma. It is anticipated that this would have a hugely beneficial effect on the inmates since the spiritual and emotional effects of music in human transformation are well known.last_img read more

Only small cargo carriers would be allowed in village roads Mamata

first_imgMidnapore (WB): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Tuesday said that up to four-wheeled cargo carriers would be allowed in village roads in the state to avoid damage to these streets from larger transport vehicles. Banerjee said that it has come to her notice that large trucks are using these village roads to bypass toll booths on highways to avoid payment of tax. “I want the police, panchayat and other local bodies to jointly ensure that large trucks do not enter village roads and damage these,” the chief minister said during an administrative review meeting in West Midnapore district. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life She asked the local authorities to put up barricades at entry points to village roads to stop plying of large transport vehicles. Stating that village roads are not strong enough to bear the load of large cargo vehicles, Banerjee said that these are causing damage to such streets. “The state government spends a lot to construct the roads and we cannot bear the burden of repairing these roads owing to damage caused by large transport vehicles which take village roads to avoid paying toll tax on highways,” she said. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed Banerjee also asked the district and block land reforms officers and officers in-charge of police stations to take steps to stop illegal sand mining. “I want the anti-corruption unit to keep vigil and take strong action,” she told state security advisor Surajit Kar Purakayastha. She said that it has been a trend that after a directive is issued, steps are taken for a few months after which such activities start again. The chief minister said vigil must continue round the year to stop illegal sand mining from river beds, causing large-scale erosion. Taking up the issue of dearth of doctors in government hospitals in the districts and local health centres, Banerjee said that chief medical officers of districts have been permitted to appoint local doctors on part-time basis. She said that good remuneration packages for such service given by the doctors on part-time basis at state-run hospitals have been fixed.last_img read more

Children will be protected from child porn under Rep Iden bill

first_img19Apr Children will be protected from child porn under Rep. Iden bill Categories: Iden News,News Measure is part of House plan in response to Larry Nassar scandalState Rep. Brandt Iden this week testified to the House Law and Justice Committee on how children under the age of 12 will get increased protections from child pornography under his legislation.The bill is part of a bipartisan reform plan developed following the House’s inquiry into the recent Larry Nassar scandal.“Child pornography is terrible, especially with what it does to the young children victimized by it,” said Iden, of Oshtemo Township. “What has been almost overlooked after the Nassar scandal was he possessed and tried to get rid of a significant amount of child pornography. This gives us another example of why we must continue to step up the fight against this filth.”Iden’s plan will bring enhanced penalties for producing, distributing or financing child pornography that includes over 100 images, involves sadomasochism or bestiality, or involves a child less than 12 years of age. Individuals who distribute the pornographic material face up to 15 years in prison and a $75,000 fine. Anyone found to produce or finance production of the illegal images may be imprisoned up to 25 years and pay a $125,000 fine.“This disgusting case has shown us what we need to do to better protect our children,” Iden said. “Together, we’re going to do everything we can to prevent another Nassar case from ever happening again here in Michigan.”House Bill 5794 remains under consideration by the committee.last_img read more
