நளினி விடுதலை குறித்து குமுதம் இதழில்.... Jc. S. Murali

முதலாவதாக, வெளிநாட்டினர் நம் நாட்டில் குற்றம் புரிந்திருந்தாலும், நம் நா ட்டின் சட்டப்படி தண்டனை தரப்படவேண்டும். அது தான் நடந்தது. ஒரு குற்றவாளி திட்டமிட்டு நம் நாட்டின் முன்னாள் பிரதமரை படுகொலை செய்ததை (Assasination) நம் நாட்டு நீதி மன்றம் (Special Court) பலகட்ட விசாரணையின் படி நீதியின் பெயரால் தண்டனை கொடுத்து அதனை நளினி அனுபவித்து வருகிறார். 

இதன் இடையில், பல வசதிகளையும் அவர் அனுபவித்து வருகிறார். அவருக்கென குடும்பம், குழந்தை, அவர்களை அடிக்கடி பார்க்க அனுமதி, படிப்பு, யோகா மற்றும் சிறப்பு வகுப்புகள்... சைவ, அசைவ உணவு வகைகள்... அடித்தட்டு இந்திய நாட்டு ஏழைப் பிரஜைக்கு இந்த வசதி,  வாழ்க்கையில் கிட்டுமா என்பது மில்லியன் டாலர் கேள்வி...

ஒரு கனம் கப்பலோட்டிய சிதம்பரனார் செக்கிழுத்ததை நினைவில் கொள்ள வேண்டும். ஆனால், இப்போதைய சிறைவாசிகள் எத்தகைய வசதிகளை அனுபவிக்கிறார்கள்... ஏன்.. அசைவம் கூட பரிமாறப்படுகிறது. ஆனால், அரசியல் தீய சக்திகள் இதையும் அரசியலாக்குகிறது. இவர்களை எல்லாம் பரிந்து பேசுவதும், இவர்களின் செயலை நியாயப்படுத்துவதும் இந்திய நாட்டின் இறையாண்மையை கேலிப்படுத்துவதாகவும், மதிப்பு மிக்க நீதிமன்றத் தீர்ப்பை அவமதிப்பதாகவும் உள்ளது. 

இந்த செயல் அமெரிக்கா, சவுதி அரேபியா போன்ற நாடுகளில் நடந்திருந்தால் இது போன்ற பேச்சுக்கே இடமில்லை. என்ன நடந்திருக்கும் என உங்கள் பார்வைக்கே விட்டு விடுகிறேன். 

இங்கு என்ன நடக்கும்.... பல கோலைகளைச் செய்த பூலான் தேவியே பாராளுமன்ற உறுப்பினர் ஆகவில்லையா? நளினியும் வெளிவந்தவுடன் அரசியல்வா(ந்)திகள் சிறை வாசலில் காத்திருந்து வரவேற்பதும், அவர்களின் சேவையைப் பாராட்டி அவர்களுக்கு இந்திய குடியுரிமை கேட்டுப் போராடுவதும் நடக்கத் தான் போகிறது. 

பத்திரிகைகள் பேட்டி எடுத்து சேவை செய்யத்தான் போகின்றன. போதாக்குறைக்கு, அனைத்து TV-க்கள் ஒளி பரப்பத்தான் போகின்றன. 

அப்பாவித் தமிழனும் அதை வேடிக்கை பார்த்து நளினியின் மேல் அனுதாபப் படத்தான் போகிறான். சொல்ல முடியாது....... அவர் தன் கதையை எழுத Agreement போட்டாலும் போடுவார்கள். 

தொலைக்காட்சித் தொடராகவும், ஏன் சினிமாவாக எடுக்கவும் சில நாட்டுப் பற்று மிக்க தமிழர்கள் முன்வரலாம். இது நியாயமா, எனக் கேட்டால் இருக்கவே இருக்கிறது, தொப்புள் கொடி உறவு முழக்கம்... 

உண்மையைச் சொல்ல வேண்டுமென்றால், சக விடுதலை இயக்கங்களான மற்ற தமிழ் போராளி இயக்கங்களை அழித்ததே விடுதலைப் புலிகள் தானே... அப்பொழுது இந்த தொப்புள் கொடி உறவு முழக்கங்கள் எங்கே போயின?

இங்கு மக்களை முட்டாளாக்கும் செயல் இன்று, நேற்றா நடக்கிறது, இப்பொழுது மட்டும் குறை சொல்ல? 

நடப்பதை வேடிக்கை பார்த்துக் கொண்டு, கை தட்டி விட்டு, மீண்டும் தேர்தலுக்குத் தயாராகி விட்டான் மரத் தமிழன்... 


வாழ்க தமிழ்... வளர்க அவர்களது ஞாபக மறதியும், அரசியல்வாதிகளிடம் இன்னமும் ஏமாறும் தனமும்...

Embedding a Panoramio map into your web page

Add a bit of Panoramio to your website or blog! It's a nice way to show off your vacation photos, photos of the place you're visiting, and so on. With just a snippet of code, your page can display a small map of the world or a portion of the world with up to twenty photos. Here's an example.

Embedded Panoramio map

To embed a Panoramio map in your web page or blog, you'll need to enter a bit of HTML code, as the next sections explain. The embedded map isn't quite the same as the regular Panoramio map. You specify the area you want to show and the embedded Panoramio shows just the photos in the specified map area. If you change the location on the map, no photos appear.

On your own website or blog, a Panoramio icon will appear in the lower right corner.

Format for your code

Following is the format of the code that inserts the embedded Panoramio map. You can enter this into your website's HTML code or into your blog, replacing each value in colored italics with your own values.

If you use Blogger, write the code above in the Edit HTML tab.

The code is shown in multiple lines to make it easy to read, but your own line of code do not need to have any line breaks.

<iframe src="http://www.panoramio.com/plugin/?
    lt="latitude"&amp;ln=longitude&amp";z="zoom"&amp;k="map-type"" width="widthpx" height="heightpx">
      </iframe>

In this format:

  • latitude is the latitude of the center of the map, in decimal format.
  • longitude is the longitude to show at the center of the map, in decimal format.
  • zoom is the zoom level of the map. The available range depends on the location where you've centered the map. Lower numbers indicate a closer look, such as -2 or -3, which is the closest view of a city. Level 7 indicates the approximate size of a country, and level 15 indicates the entire world.
  • map-type is one of the following numbers:
    • 0 (zero) creates a plain map
    • 1 creates a satellite map
    • 2 creates a hybrid map with both a satellite view and a plain view
  • width and height specify the size of the frame in pixels. Try experimenting with this parameter to determine how wide you want the map. You can create a map of any square or rectangular size, but the map might behave differently at different sizes.

Here's some example code to use for experimenting. Copy it and put it into an HTML page to show the world in an embedded Panoramio frame.

<iframe src="http://www.panoramio.com/plugin/?lt=28&amp;ln=-33&amp;z=17&amp;k=2" width="250px" height="250px"></iframe>

In this example:

  • The latitude is 28.
  • The longitude is -33.
  • The zoom level is 17.
  • The map type is 2 (hybrid).
  • The map is 250 pixels high and 250 pixels wide.

Tips on writing the code

To find information to help you write your code:

  1. In Panoramio, display the world map.
  2. Search for a place, and adjust the zoom level the way you like it.
  3. In the browser address bar, note the URL. You'll see values for the latitude (lt value) , longitude (ln value) , zoom level (z value) and map type (k value). For example, a map of Central Park, New York might have the following URL:
    http://www.panoramio.com/map/#lt=40.782719&ln=-73.964767&z=3&k=1&a=1&tab=1
    

    In this example, the latitude is 40.782719, the longitude is -73.964767, the zoom level is 3, and the map type (kind of map) is 1. The last two attributes are not available for use with the embedded Panoramio map.

  4. Put the code on your website. Here's the code that you'd use for the previous example, with line breaks added for readability in this document:
    <iframe src="http://www.panoramio.com/plugin/?
            lt="40.782719"&amp;ln="-73.964767"&amp;z="3"&amp;k="1"&amp;
            width="500px" height="500px">
          </iframe>
    

 

IT WAS FAULT OF RIVER GANGA!

 

(Source: Oh, Mind relax please)

 

I have the opportunity to travel for and wide the occasion to meet people from different cultures. Most foreigners speak with a sense of wonder about India's rich spirituality, natural wealth, the unity maintained in spite of cultural diversity and so on. They also ask me how despite such a rich heritage, our nation has not attained material wealth? I have maintained discreet silence without answering the question. I do ask myself this question but the answer turns out to be “ WE - KNOW - EVERYTHING - ATTITUDE ". This is my honest opinion.

 

When we operate with an attitude of “I know everything", we fail to consider even those issues unknown to us. The simple reason is, we cannot be open minded as we come from a structure “We - Know - Everything".

 

“Many of us remain blind and deaf despite having eyes and ears', Jesus said. That is why our country remains in poverty in spite of having all riches. There is a story about this.

 

 

 ***************************************************************************************************************

 

There was an excellent student. He had learnt many things from expert masters. He wanted to learn about the river Ganga. So he went about meeting many scholars who knew a lot aobut the river.....he spent many days in gathering various details....., where the river originates, runs narrow, runs wide, where it gets flooded, where it mingles with tributaries.....

 

After obtaining all possible details, he prepared an elaborate map featuring the river Ganga. Now he was quite sure that the knew everything that was to be known about the river. With that attitude, he got into a boat at Rishikesh. He wanted to reach the Bay of Bengal by boat, where the river merges with the ocean. The map matched with the riparian flow - exactly; turning and twisting in all the right places. Now the student was intoxicated with his own knowledge and felt extremely proud that he knew the whole history of the river. Suddenly, the river took a left turn. According to his map, it should have turned to the right. The student was shocked. But he was unable to accept the the map could be wrong. He wanted the river to follow the map. He turned furious with the river. He broke his journey half way through and returned home. Since he acted from the mentality that ' I - KNOW - EVERYTHING - ATTITUDE ', he was not able to fully experience and enjoy the mysteries of the river.  

 

We create maps of people and want people to fit in to our maps. We are too stuck with the map and hence miss the joy of being with the people.

 

Another bad habit we possess is the inability to correct our errors easily. Though we know that the mistake is ours, we justify our actions. The bigger joke is in considering ourselves very clever for being able to justify our mistakes effectively! This mentality is called as being a " smart Alec" or " smartie " !

 

A hawker was selling hand fans made of palm leaves. He proclaimed "This fan is long lasting, it will last for one hundred years. So the price is $5....."The kind who saw this from his balcony was amused. He called the man into the palace and said, "Hey, are you joking? How can this flimsy fan cost $5? It should not cost even one cent! On top of it, you say it will last for 100 years. What a bluff? " 

The Hawker said, “Oh King that is a very rare fan. It can last for one hundred years. That is why the price is so high!” The king refused to accept his explanation; but the hawker went on pursuing. Finally the Kind gave up. The kind agreed to buy a fan on the condition that if it failed to last a hundred years, he would cut the hawker's head off!

 

Later, as expected, the fan tore within a few hours.

 

The king's men went looking for the hawker and brought him to the palace. The king ordered him to be die. But I really wonder how this fain that should have lasted one hundred years, tore within such a short time in your hands! So, before killing me, would you be kind enough to explain to me how you used it? "

 

The King relented to his last wish and showed him how he used the fan. At this, the hawker exclaimed with a hurt look, " Oh, no! This is where the whole mistake is! This fan would surely last for one hundred years....but this is not the way to use it. One should keep the fan in front and shake one's face to and fro and not the fan.....Then the fan would last for 100 years".

 

WE ARE EXPERTS IN JUSTIFYING OUR FOLLIES.

Opportunity

Jaycees can be called an organisation of opportunities. The opportunities available within Jaycees are co numerous, it could take a life time to grasp them all. Most members select those which cater to their particular needs and make the most of them.


Basically, there are five areas of opportunities within the organization individual, Management, Community, International and Business. Projects are conducted each area. As the members work on these projects, they encounter opportunities for total development.

Individual Opportunities
Opportunities for personal development are offered under the individual development area. Seminars, such as leadership in Action, Personal Dynamics, Effective Communication, and Goal Setting help members to speak effectively. Learn leadership skills, improve their communication abilities and enhance their personal development.

Management Opportunities
The management area provides Opportunity for the development of managerial skills through learning, LOM management. It deals with finances, records, recognition, membership growth, retention, marketing and public relations. Members have the chance to work on fund- raising projects.

Milestones of Jaycees

Each year new and exciting advancements and decisions are made in the organization which is today named Junior Chamber International (JCI). As it is impossible to list them all, the following are the events and years in which they occurred, which we truly regard as landmarks in the history of our worldwide organization.

 

1910
The organization began in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. The founder, Henry Giessenbier, had formed the Herculaneum Dance Club with the purpose of bringing about the social elevation of its members.

 

1915 
The first step towards the creation of the Jaycee movement was taken when 32 young men met at the Mission Inn in St. Louis on 13 October 1915 to form the Young Men's Progressive Civic Association with Giessenbier as its president.

 

1916
In August, the organization's name was changed to Junior Citizens, and it was at this time that the initials "JC" were first employed.

 

1920
On the 21st and 22nd January, the first national organization, the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce (USJCC) was formed. Twenty-nine clubs around the nation were in attendance and elected Henry Giessenbier as the first national president.

 

1920-44
The Jaycee movement crossed international borders. Organizations were formed in many countries including Canada, England, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia and Colombia. The Junior Chamber momement came to Canada in 1923 with the formation of its first chapter, the Young Men's Section of the Winnipeg Board of Trade.

 

Many actions were taken to form Junior Chamber International, including the creation of the International Executive Council of Junior Chambers of Commerce formed at the Olympic Games in 1932.

 

1944
Junior Chamber International was born in Mexico City, Mexico during 7 to 11 December. Witnesses to the birth of the organization were 30 delegates from North and Central America. Raul Garcia Vidal was elected the first president.

 

1946
In February, the first JCI World Congress was held in Panama City, Panama, with an attendance of 44 delegates from 16 countries. At this time, a Constitution was drafted. Also this year a young Jaycee member, Mr. C. William 'Bill' Brownfield, authored the Jaycee Creed.

1952
The JCI Senate was formed through the efforts of Phil Pugsley, the 1951 JCI president, at the 7th JCI World Congress in Melbourne, Australia.

 

1953
The first permanent World Headquarters was established at the United States Jaycees War Memorial Headquarters Building in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Philip Van Slyck was hired as JCI's first full-time Secretary General.

 

1955 
The rapidly growing World Headquarters moved to its own building in Miami Beach, Florida, USA.

 

1969
The current World Headquarters was built in Coral Gables, Florida, USA to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Junior Chamber International.

 

1972
At the 38th JCI World Congress in Taipei, the organization's name was changed from Junior Chamber International to Jaycees International.

 

1983
Honorees were recognized at the first Outstanding Young Persons ceremony at the 38th JCI World Congress in Taipei, Taiwan.

 

1988
At the 39th JCI World Congress in Sydney, Australia, the organization's name was again changed from Jaycees International to Junior Chamber International.

 

1989
1989 was an historic year for JCI as services were extended to the Eastern Bloc countries of Estonia (USSR), Poland and Hungary.

JCI - Declaration of Principles

"We believe:
That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;
That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;
That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;
That government should be of laws rather than of men;
That earth's great treasure lies in human personality;
And that service to humanity is the best work of life."

 

The year was 1946; the place, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, U.S.A.; the event, the United States Junior Chamber National Convention. Visitors came from Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe and the Philippine Islands. It was here that the idea of a JCI creed was born. The Creed is now called the JCI Declaration of Principles.

 

Past President of the Ohio Junior Chamber and National Vice President of the United States Junior Chamber C. William Brownfield realized at this convention that the organization did not have a creed. He was inspired by the devotion of Junior Chamber members "to the purpose of serving mankind in a thousand different ways, right down at the grass roots where freedom lives or dies."

 

Brownfield saw Junior Chamber as "the potential for a new force in the world, one capable of changing the balance between victory or defeat for our chosen way of life in a time of crisis."

 

The actual writing of the Declaration of Principles took place in July 1946 during a drive from Brownfield's hometown of Columbus, Ohio, to his coal mine in New Lexington, a journey of about 75 minutes. He started that journey with a firm conviction in his mind to work on the Declaration of Principles. It was during that trip that the following words came to mind and were put on paper:

 

The brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations.
Economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise.
Government should be of laws rather than of men.
Earth's great treasure lies in human personality.
Service to humanity is the best work of life.

 

In 1950 the first line, "We believe that faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life." was added.

 

Since it was written, Junior Chamber members all over the world recite the JCI Declaration of Principles at local, national and international meetings and functions. During that time there has been much discussion of the interpretation of this document. The author himself said, "Every Member is free to interpret it in the light of his own conscience."

 

The following interpretation is based on Brownfield's own views and what is commonly believed and understood to be the meaning of the Declaration of Principles to the organization.


BROWNFIELD’S INTERPRETATION OF THE JCI DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES


"We believe . . . " Everyone must believe in some ideal, principle or philosophy. To believe is to practice what is believed to be true.

 

" . . . That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life . . . " "God" here does not refer to any specific religious God, but to a supreme omnipotence. It does not matter who or what your God is; the line is just saying that you must believe in something. Brownfield interpreted it in this way: "The Junior Chamber membership, drawn from many religious backgrounds, is united by a common bond of faith; that man lives by the will of (his/her) God, that God's will for man is good; and that the life worthwhile is lived in harmony with His eternal plan."

 

" . . . That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations . . . " This line breaks down all the boundaries that have been imagined by mankind. It simply means that all men and women are equal. It respects allegiance to one's country, but, at the same time, reinforces the idea that man is a citizen of the world. Brownfield put it this way: "Man made boundaries have been drawn and redrawn, separating the human race into many nations. But across these unnatural divisions there has been an intercourse in art, science, commerce and religion; evidence of man's universal brotherhood; proof that man himself, not his territorial divisions, is of basic worth."

 

" . . . That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise . . . " The operative words here are " . . . can best be won . . . " Junior Chamber members believe that man should be free to use his skills and abilities to the limit in improving his economy. Brownfield expressed it this way: "Where economic improvement has been greatest, man has been free to follow his dream of making a personal fortune by doing something never done before, or by doing it better." He also said, " . . . the system of self development through private enterprise could be adapted with variations to suit local conditions in many parts of the world."

 

" . . . That government should be of laws rather than of men . . . “This simply means that no one should be above the law, and that the law should be the same for all people, no matter what status they hold in society. The government must be based on constitutional law, accepted and ratified by a majority of the people. The power to change laws and elect governments should remain in the hands of a majority of the people. Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, spoke of a government “of the people, for the people, and by the people." This line crystallizes what President Lincoln was talking about so many decades ago. Brownfield expressed the meaning this way: "In a free society, the fundamental law is derived from the people. It is they who hold the final authority."

 

" . . . That earth's great treasure lies in human personality . . . " Every individual has a separate and unique personality. That is the main difference between humans and other creatures of the world. That uniqueness makes the human personality earth's greatest treasure. It cannot be duplicated nor can it be made. Brownfield's views on this line are: "True treasure lies in the hearts of men. There is about us a vast field of opportunity for cultivation of the human personality. It is not the quantity nor the length of life that gives it zest, but the quality of living, the achievement we make in terms of human progress."

 

" . . . And that service to humanity is the best work of life." This final tenet of the Declaration of Principles is the logical culmination of the preceding lines. A person who believes in the Declaration of Principles will most definitely find service to humanity to be the best work of life. Note the word humanity. Brownfield's interpretation to this line is, "The life lived unselfishly grows richer, deeper and fuller. Joy is more enduring and peace of mind, more certain. The world looks at the contribution such a life has made and marks the one who lived it as a benefactor of the race; yet he knows in truth the greater benefit has been his own."

 

No matter what a member's interpretation of the Declaration of Principles may be, he or she should always practice what he or she believes. Many unsuccessful attempts have been made to change the Declaration of Principles, but it has prevailed through the years and continues be the covenant that holds the organization together. Many members have made the Declaration of Principles their guide in life.

THE BEGINNING OF JAYCEES Henry Gissenbier, a young man from St. Loius, Misouri, U.S.A felt that young people acting in a voluntary capacity could fashion new standard of life of their communities. On October 1915; he called a meeting, attended by 32 men, who left up an organization called the Young Men’s Progressive Civic Association. It was devoted to community betterment. The vigor and imagination of the youthful group attached the admiration of the St. Louis Chamber of Commerce, which on February 11, 1918, asked the young men to consider the title “ Junior Chamber of Commerce” so was the name born. The movement spread, so that by June 1920, the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce marched on to Canada, New Zealand.


Over to Asia, over Europe and to Africa. In 1944, in Mexico City, the world organization, the Junior Chamber International was formed and since that date, JCI has fired the imagination of hundreds of thousands of young men across the face of the earth. In 1972, the World Organization officially adopted the name, “Jaycees International”. The Origin of Junior Chamber can be traced as formed the Herculaneium Dance Club with the main objective being the preservation of conservative dance style. Five years later, in 1915, Colonel H. N Morgan, a prominent St. Louis citizen, inspired the members of the dance club to become more involved in civic issues. Giessenbier and 32 other young men formed the Young Men’s Progressive Civic Association (YMPCA) on October 13, 1915. This organization grew to a membership of 750 in less than five months.


THE FIRST WORLD CONGRESS, two years later, In February of 1946, the first World Congress was held in Panama City. This Congress was attended by 44 delegates from different countries. The international organization was formally constituted, a temporary constitution was approved, and the word “Commerce” was omitted from the official name. Erasmo Chambonnet of Panama was elected the second JCI President at that Congress, and Australia and Canada were officially affiliated. In 1948 the JCI Creed was officially adopted at the IV JCI World Congress in Rio de Janeiro, and in 1952 a permanent Secretariat was established. In 1972 the name was changed to Jaycees International; however, 1n 1988 the name was changed back to Junior Chamber International.
